Paine is erecting a store building for the purpose of putting in a restaurant. The Presbyterian church is undergoing a thorough cleaning, painting and papering. W. M. Peck of Fenton has commenced work on his hotel, which is to cost about $2,000. At the last meeting of the Good Temp- lars a very interesting program was rendered.

Come down, Ledyard, Saturday, and the Burt boys will do their best to win, and give you also a fair game. » The Courier correspondent was a little premature last week in saying that the Board had engaged their teachers for another year. A heavy hail storm with a deluge of rain swept aver this locality Monday, but up to the present writing we have heard of no particular damage. The Children's Day exercises will be held next Sabbath morning in the Presbyterian church. They were deferred a week on accountof remodeling the church. What's the matter with Burl? Our hogbuyers are getting stock within six miles of Wesley, two or three of Bancroft and Algona. Joe Elvidge is a rustler. The contract for the new school house was let to Fred Dehnert for $2,390.00. The intention at present is to finish onl y the lower rooms this year, and finish the two upper ones when needed. Notice the call for the Teachers' Convention to be held at Burt Saturday, the 25th. It is to be hoped that all the teach ers within the radius of Burt will turn out. Teachers, let there be a good at tendance. Mr. and Mrs. Jonathan Shanor, of Prospect, III., are visiting their son, Wm. Shanor of this place. Mr. Shanor is "Grandma" McDonald's brother. Mrs, Dodge, of Davenport, their daughter, came with them. "The Last Loaf" will be given to Burt people in Mr, Marble's hall next Friday evening, June 17th. Those who wish to enjoy partaking can do so by coming out and seeing Burt home talent. The Burt Dramatic Club has always been a success. The proceeds are to go to the band. A CARD.—We desire through the columns of your paper to extend our heartfelt gratitude to our neighbors and friends, of Burt, who were so kind and thoughtful of us and the dear wife and mother, during her sickness and death.— MR. A. FOSTER AND FAMILY. Arrangements are being made to hold a home picnic and celebrate the "Glorious Fourth" at Burt. So all who wish to come to Burt for the first time to shout for liberty are cordially invited. Burt can afford home amusements enough for any small boy, and can be as hospitable as any town. After a severe illness, Mrs. Archie Foster died at her home near Burt, June 7th. Mrs. Foster was born in Lockport, Will Co., III., October 11, 1853, and was therefore in her fortieth year at the time of her death.. She was married to Mr. Foster at Dwight, 111., Jan. 13, 1874. Her death is deplored by her husband and three sons who survive her, and by a ' large circle of friends and relatives. Mrs. Foster was a true and devoted Christian; in her family relations she exhibited love, sympathy, faithfulness, helpfulness. [She was self-sacrificing, willing to administer unto the needs of those whom God had placed within the circle of her activity. Thus long before she became a part of a new order of things where sorrow and sin have no place, she was truly an inhabitant of the New Jerusalem, for the citizens of that blessed country are those who, like Christ, love, sympathise, help, „ and sacrifice. Although dead, her life 1 /still speaks to us, and its closing message \V"come up higher." A, A, Beane, A, M,, M, D, Office and residence one door west of POST OFFICE. PHOTOGRAPHS!

The Manufacturers' Commission Co. s a responsible syndicate which sells direct to Jie consumer. By investing in manufacturers' samples,odds and ends, job-lots, and the stocks of insolvent manufacturers, in connection with our regular commission holdings, we are able to - • '• ' tli sell to the consumer direct at the commission nice, which is but one remove from the manu- 'acturer's.

A gentleman, under forty years of age, whose hair was rapidly becoming thin and gray, began the use of Ayer's Hair Vigor, and in six months his hair was restored to its natural color, and even more than its former growth and richness. Weak hair strengthened and the scalp kept clean by using Hall's Hair Renewer. Happy days and restful nights result from using Ayer's Sarsaparilla. It so regulates all the bodily functions and strengthens the nervous system that worry and fatigue are comparatively unknown and life is truly enjoyed. It is certainly a most wonderful medicine.
