This is the third term of Miss Smith's teaching this school, and she is a good teacher. Gustav Blake has rented John Smith's farm near Ledyard. Sheriff Stephens of Algona was up to visit the big prairie, and also called at Ledyard to attend to his official business. Threshing is nearly finished in this section of the county and grain turns out good. Mr. Kleist of Ramsay to'ok a trip to Blue Earth City, Minn., to make a purchase of some household goods, among which was a nice fur overcoat. He took his coat to the wagon and went to the store after his other goods, on returning he found his coat missing, and it has been missing ever since. Some one stole it. : An item of importance was overlooked last week. Sohn Hill one of our worthy young men, who came from Illinois last spring to open up a farm on our northern prairies, received a telegram that his mother was very ill. He departed for his home a week ago Saturday, we are sorry to have him go, but we are depending on his promises to return in spring. Prof. Dodge of the Northern Iowa Normal school of Algona occupied the pulpit at Ramsay in place of Rev. Williams. As wo have not been to Ramsay for along time, we hod the occasion to take a trip •through that vicinity the other day, and to our amazement we saw the improvements since the time we last saw Ramsay. B. F. Smith has erected a very nice barn, Mr. Smith is booming Ramsay in good shape. Rev. E. H. Howe has purchased our village blacksmith's residence, and intends to live at Ramsay for awhile. Rev. Howe some years ago lived at Elmore, Minn. He is a doctor and also a preacher, and a good one too. So you see Ramsay is supplied with medical aid.

The building was raised from its foundation, and is almost a ruin. ^ uu- Bines on A Blight breefcO taffies the ocean. Th« resseisscttd by tffide* full sail, and the fcshing boats, oft on the banks, rise ftttd tell like logs on the long ground swell, foe stiff breaks on the beach in gteat tombers, which ttftow themselves high upon the sand and then rush back to mingle with the more congenial element. On the blufe at Seabright stands a man whose eyes, shaded by his hand, are bent fixedly upon a small dark patch on the ocean over which are clustered excited sea gulls. Now and then the patch scintillates with o silver spots, and the gulls throw themselves from their lofty height into the silver kaleidoscope. It seems to be moving hearer shore. The watcher perceives it to be a school of bluefish. Soon the school is inside of the breakers and he runs into a neighboring house. He comes out carrying a long fishing line, neatly coiled and ending in six inches or more of stout wire, to which is attached n lead squid. Removing his shoes and stockings and rolling up his trousers the man, carrying the coil of line on his arm, wades into the surf, and catching hold of the line about six feet from the squid begins to whirl the piece of lead around his head. It whirls faster and faster. After the retr .fc of a wave he finally runs down L*>^' * n *° the ocean bed and let-r<te*«i the lino. The squid flics out straight a hundred and fifty feet or more and settles into the breakers. FISH1NQ FROM THE BHOBE. Then the fisherman hauls it in hand over hand as rapidly as he can. A bluefish jumps from the water and the line assumes a marked rigidity. The fisherman hauls yet faster, and pulls up on the beach a six pound beauty. He unhooks the long, powerful bodied, blue backed, white bellied fish very gingerly, for he is mindful of the razorlike teeth and does not care to lose a finger. He throws the fish high up on the beach and begins his efforts afresh. In half an hour the bluefish, which have been in chase of a school ORANGE JUDD FARMER, One of the BEST FARM JOURNALS in the country, to be sent to every family in Kossuth county for one year, ABSOLUTELY FREE, if yoji wish it.

Such is bluefishing on the Jersey coast. • Would you see the sport on Great South Bay, go to any of the bordering towns, and engage fora small sum a sailboat and a captain to take you out. _ If you do not become seasick and there is a reefing breeze you will have grand sport. A squid and line can lie used, or a rod and reel with a squid. The boat keels well over on its side and rushes through the water with an exhilarating motion. Several long lines troll out from the boat, and the squids of bone or metal fly through the water. Now the fish strikes one line, now another, until fingers, protected as they are by mitts, are sore and arms ache. A morning's sport will often yield enough fish for a large hotel. Another method frequently practiced here is known to fishermen as chumming. Several hundred menhaden, or "bunkers," are secured, a portion of which are ground or chopped up into a land of mush, and liberally scattered over the surface of the water where the boat is anchored. TOWNSEND & LANG-DON. Now is the Time! tlast amount SWEA, Oct. 37.-TU6 Swedish Baptist church held its annual harvest festival yesterday. The church was decorated in the most elogant and artistic manner. In the real' of the pulpit was a large «" bearing the motto "Jesus Christ is unto us wisdom and righteousness sanctificatlou and redemption," 1 Cor. 1, *.

These panels were framed in deep mouldings of various colors which with the letters were all made of corn in eays or kernals. On the left of the pulpit potatoes and other garden roots were piled and on the right stood a shock of ripened grain with a scythe resting upon it. From the table dropped » iestoon of oewi ears In white, red, and yellow, and upon stood a beautiful boquet of autumn flowers. , ,i o ^ ^ jj^nner bearing and below It was JoSNSGS'S pure Cider Vinegar for sale at tlve Cash Store. _ THE OUTFIT. An oily "stick" is thus formed which floats rapidly to leeward, and of ten attracts the bluefish within a radius of a mile. A slice from the menhaden s back Ls put on a large hook and the line is thrown overboard, and as it drifts away the bait is seized by the voracious fish which swarm about the boat. Bluefish tackle is exceedingly cheap. A dollar will purchase all that is necessary for hard fishing, while an outlay of 60 or $7 will buy a stout casting rod, a cheap, stout reel and line, and the necessary hooks and squids. With this outfit the most fastidious can fish. _ _ Small snappers of two pounds weight are quite abundant at Broad channel and the inlet of Jamaica bay, and also at Sea- waren, Prince's bay, the Horse at Sandy Hook and at Barnegat. The large fish running from six to fifteen pounds have been found in great quantities all along the Long Island and Jersey coasts. Th6 , season is usuallyfrom themidOleof July to the first of October. J To be sure of good fishing and big fish one should go aboard vone of the stanch little smacks that supply Fulton mar^t with its Friday's bluefish. A little tact and the judicious use of four or five dollars will secure a berth. These boats go out to the banks of the Jersey or Long Island shore and sail around until fish are sighted. Then they Anchor. Small hand mills are brought on_deck and menhaden are ground up. Dories to the number often of a dozen, each carrying a man and menhaden, mush and bait, put off from the smacks and anchor within a radius of half » mile.
