Wesley. WESLEY, Jan. 0.—Saturday the vote was taken to incorporate our village. There was a full vote out and it is rumored that . there was more than a full vote polled. There were 79 votes cast, 85 for and 44 against. It was one of the most spirited elections that ever was held in our town, both sides doing their best to show up the good and bad features of having a town incorporated. There is talk now of trying it again, leaving out some portions of the territory that was included in the last petition. Miss Ada Hollonback went to Nora Springs Saturday. The ladies of Wesley will give a supper Wednesday evening, Jan. 14, for the benefit of Rev. McBride, All that like roast turkey, chickens, and Boston baked beans come out and have a pleasant time.

Welch's mother, is spending the holidays with them. Greenwood. • GKEENWOOD, Jan. G.—We have a farmers' alliance at the Warner school four miles west of Bancroft, and the farmers are just making things hum too. Debates are had every Tuesday night and high old times are the result. The wives and daughters join the alliance and the school house will not contain them all if they all come the same evening. The school teachers in vicinity have joined also. Heathershaw is doing well shipping poultry. It is not every farmer that can take hold of this business and run it successfully. We are glad to see this kind of work. J. E. Paul, who is teaching the Warner school, has rented the upper rooms in the Bernhard house, one mile from the school house, and has his family there with him. J. J. Budlong is one of the farmers' alliance men and a tip top man too. He is one of Kossuth's best farmers. When he first came here from Tama county, Iowa, he taught the Warner school, took care of his stock, and made every move count in the right direction. John Bernhard, a near neighbor of Mr. Budlong, is another rustler, and owns a section or more of land, owning the A. S. Hawkes farm. Wm. Hedge, J. J. Budlong, and J. E, Paul were chosen delegates to the annual meeting of the farmers' alliance held at Algona Jan. 8. J. J. Budlong and J. E. Paul being unable to attend, J. H. Warner and M. Heathershaw Sr. attended as substitutes. A pleasant meeting was enjoyed by them, and some business of interest to the farmer was discussed. F. M. Evans of Bancroft will be one of the alliance people after Tuesday, having declared he would be here at that time to join tho little band of workers. If Mr. Evans is as good a plowman in tho alliance as outside of it, he will be a valuable addition to it. Fentoii. FENTON, Jan. 5.—-The dance that was to have been given New Year's night is postponed till Friday evening of this week, A good time is in prospect. Cresco, CUESCO, Jan. 5.—The farmers of northern Cresco and southern Union townships, and of the neighborhood generally are requested to meet at the Boals school house on Wednesday evening Jan. 14, at 7 p. in., to discuss the advisability of establishing a co-operative creamery in that locality. MANY CITIZENS. CHESCO, Jan. 5.—A very pleasant surprise was perpetrated on Miss Alma Chron- holm, teacher in sub-district No. 4, Cresco township, New Year's eve, it being the occasion of her birthday. The children and a number of the patrons of the school met at her boarding place for a social party which was enjoyed by all. As an evidence that they appreciated her efforts as a teacher, a number of tokens of their esteem were left with her, among which was a beautiful school clock; of books "Hale's Lights of Two Centures," "Page's Theory and Practice of Teaching," and "EastLynne;" a pair of overshoes, a pair of kid mittens, handkerchiefs, ribbons, birthday cards, and several other mementoes too numerous to mention. It always adds a bright spot in the life of the teacher as well as other people to know that their efforts have not been ill in vain. The feeling manner in which she acknowledged the receipt of the presents showed how complete was her surprise, and how much she appreciated the Beautiful and useful presents she received. Bode. Livermove Gazette: C. L. Kinseth, who clerks for Mi'- Epssing, Js numbered with those who " didn't know it Wai loaded," consequently It went off and bumed his face very badly. It was the day before Christmas and he was building the fire In the stove with kerosene. Somehow it didn't start off as quick as he thought it Ought to, so he went to see if it had gone out. It had not, but was just going to, and as he stood right In the Way, it ran against him. It likewise blew off the elbows in the stove above, and created commotion generally. Peace to the ashes—that were scattered around. Iver Larson and C. L. Kinseth " didn't know it Was loaded," either. They were blasting stone on the farm of the latter, and the fuse failed to explode the powder. After waiting a reasonable length of time they went to see what was the matter and concluded it had gone out. So they set to work drilling it out again, and while drilling it exploded, throwing them both to the earth. Ivor was the only one injured, however; ho Was holding tho drill, and had his hand badly torn and filled with powder. At present he is not doing any work with that hand, and don't feel like using it for some time to come, Corwlth. TheOrescent in a write up of Corwith gives a big showing for that lively town. It claims §23,000 improvements in 1890, and says that 1,801 cars have been shipped from that place during the past year. This number would have been largely increased could tho cars have been obtained. In speaking of business men it notes the prosperity of two well known men in Algo na as follows: D. Manwaring is the proprietor of tho restaurant hotel, and tho traveling public may be assured of a well cooked meal and a clean bed at this popular caravansary. Mr. Manwaring is an old soldier, and has a " feller feeling" for tho "boys." He tells us that there has been double the coming and going of transients during the past year of any previous time in the town's history. This is further evidence that our town is attracting the attention of the traveling public. W. H. Reed, general dealer in stoves, tin, and hardware, has established a good and paying business. Having tho exclusive sale of this line of goods, he has never presumed to take undue advantage of the fact by asking high or extravagant prices, but al) who deal with him are treated courteously and honestly, and goods in his line are as cheap as the cheapest. No need to go to other towns for anything in his line He reports increased sales during the pres ent year, and believes that next season will be the best that Corwith has seen, in fact will mark a big boom for our town. TOPICS OF THE TIME. How to Break Up a Severe Cold. The Virginia City, Mont., Madlsonian says: When we flnd a medicine we know to possess genuino merit we consider it a duty, and we take pleasure In telling the public what It Is. Such a medicine we found Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, last winter, when la grippe was prevailing. We aro satisfied that we warded off several attacks that were threatening by the use of this syrup, and we have since relieved, in a few hours, severe colds, and in the course of two or three days entirely broken them, up by its use, as have several of our friends to whom we have recommended it. It is all that it is represented to be by the manufacturers. If you have a cough and want to stop it, Chamberlain's Cough Remedy will do the work. Sold by F. W. Dingley. Cronp Has Lost Its Terrors. Mr. John H. Culloin, editor of the Garland, Texas, News, writes as follows: "I wish to add my testimonial to the efficacy of Chamber Iain's Cough Remedy for croup. That dread monster has lost its terrors for us since we began using the Remedy. It never fails to give speedy relief in the worst cases of croup, and we always keep a bottle in the house and recommend its use to our Mends whose little ones are so liable to be attacked with croup during the winter months."

Jones & Stapy,~36 WOMEtf W They Are Much the Sftibe Today as Their Ancestors Were Matty Con* turies Ago; Hie peasant woman, clad summer and winter in the same dress of blue cotton, and hardly diatingui&hftbie afar front her husband, tvho wears his hair in a knot like hers and is clad in a robe of the same color — the peasant •woman who is daily seen bowing over her toil in the tea fields or in the liquid mud of the rice swales, protected by a rough hat on days when the sun burns, and having her head completely enveloped when the north wind blows by a dreadful muffler, always blue, that only leaves the almond eyes to view— the small and funny peasant woman of Japan, wherever she may be sought for, even in most remote districts of tho interior, is incontestably much more refined than our peasant woman of the west. She has pretty hands and pretty delicate feet; a mere touch would suffice to fc.ansform her into one of those ladies that aro painted on vases or transparent screens, and there would be little left to teach her of mannered graces, of affectations of all sorts. She almost always cultivates a pretty garden around her ancient cottage of wood, whose interior, garnished with white mats, is scrupulously clean. Her household utensils, her little cups, her little pots, her little dishes, instead of being, as with us, of common earthenware daubed with brilliant flowers, are of transparent porcelain decorated with those light and fine paintings that bear witness of themselves to a long heredity of art. She arranges with original taste the altar of her humble ancestors. Finally, she knows how to arrange in her own vases, with the least spray of verdure, slender bouquets that the most artistic among our women would hardly be capable of composing. She may possibly be more honest than her sister of the cities and her life may be more 1 regular — from our European point of view, of course; she is also more reserved with strangers, more timid, with a sort of mistrust and dislike of the intruders, notwithstanding her amiable welcome and her smiles, In the villages of the interior, far from the recent railroads and from all modern importations, in places where the millenary immobility of the land has not been disturbed, the peasant woman has probably changed but little from what must have been, several centuries ago, her most remote ancestor, whose soul, vanished in time, has even ceased to hover ovef the family altar. At the barbaric periods of our western history when our mothers still preserved something of the grand and wild rudeness of primitive times, there lived doubtless yonder, in those isles at the east of the ancient world, these same little peasant women, so polite and so mincing, and also these same little ladies of the cities, so civilized, with their adorable courtesies. — Pierra Loti in Harper's. BLESSEDNESS OF GIVING. Philosophy of Slaking Gifts and \Vhy Doing: So Gives One Pleasure. There must be something very good in human nature or people would not experience so much pleasure in giving; there must be something very bad in human nature or more pe»ple would try the experiment of giving. Those who- do try it become enamored of it and get their chief pleasure in life out of it; and so evident is this that there is some basis for the idea that it is ignorance rather than badness which keeps so many people from being generous. Of course it may become a sort of dissipation, or more than that, a devastation, as many men who have what are called "good wives" have reason to know, in the gradual disappearance of their wardrobe if they chance to lay aside any of it temporarily. The amount that a good woman can give away is only measured by her opportunity. Her mind becomes so trained in the mystery of this pleasure that she experiences no thrill of delight in giving away only the things her husband does not want. Her office in life is to teach him the joy of self sacrifice, She and all other habitual and irreclaimable givejs soon find out that there is next to no pleasure in a gift unless it involves some self denial. Let one consider seriously whether he ever gets as much satisfaction out of a gift received as out of one given, It pleases him for the moment, and, it is useful, for a long time; ho turns it over and admires it; he may value it as a token of affection, and it flatters his self esteem that he is the object of it. But it is a transient feeling compared with that he has when he has made a gift. That substantially ministers to his self esteem. He follows the gift; he dwells upon the delight of the receiver; his imagination plays about it; it will never wear out or become stale; having parted with it, it is for him a lasting possession. It is an investment us lasting as that in the debt of England. Like a good deed, it grows, and is continually satisfactory. It is something to think of when he first wakes in the morning—a time when most people are badly put to it for want of something pleasant to think of. This fact about giving is so incontestably true that it is a wonder that enlightened people do not more freely indulge in giving for their own comfort. It is, above all else, amazing that so many imagine they are going to get any satisfaction out of what they leave by will. They may be in a state where they will enjoy it if the will is not fought over; but it is shocking how little gratitude there is accorded to a departed giver compared to a living giver. He couldn't take the property with him, it is said; he was obliged to leave it to somebody. By this thought his generosity is always reduced to a minimum. He may build a monument to himself in some institution, but we do not know enough of the world to which he has gone to know whether a tiny monument on this earth is any satisfaction to a perspsi who is free of the universe. Whereas every giving or deed of real humanity done while he was living would have entered Into his character, and would be of last- Ing service to him—that is, in any futwre which we can conceive.—Charles thidley Warner in ttatpet's, Jbrets ot Americana. Americans are the best dressed men of all nations that wear what is known as European attire—coat, pants and vest. The English are outlandish and the French too foppish, but the American 18 known throughout Europe by the quiet richness and practical fit of his clothing. I often reflect upon this when lounging about the brilliantly lighted assembly room of tho Southern hotel, as I note the faultless attire of the gentlemen, particularly those from the east and the large cities of the central states, as they spend a half hour before going out to the theatre or other engagement. The English tourist, with his abominable "fit," is as easily recognized as a western miner. A New Yorker can be told at sight; so can a Chicago man; the latter more by his manner perhaps than his clothes.—Interview in St. Louis Globe-Democrat. American Shears the Host. English scissors are still called for by ladies, but tailors and others using scissors in their daily work have long since ceased to look for tho Sheffield mark. This is very significant, and the fact that a tailor insists on American made shears is a great compliment, as the very best article is needed in cutting out garments. Ten years ago English scissors brought double an apparently similar article of American make. Now the most costly shears in these days aro of home manufacture, and every year a greater quantity of them is being exported. It is the boast of an eastern house that they ship shears regularly to Sheffield, and by so doing discount the oft repeated story and fable about "shipping coals to Newcastle."—Interview in St. Louis Globe-Democrat. A Speech That Was Not Heard, Once a speech that was to bo delivered by a well known political orator in Music hall never reached tho public, although it had been carefully prepared and was in type in the offices of all the morning dailies. The speaker was present at the meeting all ready to address tho great audience, but tho time consumed by the speakers who were given precedence was so great and the audience so wearied that tho hall was cleared before the presiding officer had a chance to do more than to shout after the retreating forms that the meeting was adjourned.—Boston Transcript. Thomas Silvorthoru, a hotelkeepor at Coral, Mich., has a spectacle case five inches long that dates back to tho misty past. The lid and bottom are of brass, the sides of copper. On the lid and opposite side are seven rude engravings, and underjeach is written in the Polish language the scriptural account of the birth of Christ. It is claimed to be from 500 to 600 yeaw old. Ho Wished She Wag a Centipede. A party was given jin St. Louis to which was invited a noble but bashful cowboy. He was a good looking fellow, and one of the young ladies present kindly took an interest in him and tried to make him feel at ease. He fell desperately in love at once, and the hostess, noticing this, encouraged him all she could. In leaving tho house the young lady who had taken a friendly interest in the cowboy forgot her overshoes and the hostess told the young Lochinvar from the plains that he might return them to the girl if he wished. The herder leaped at the chance, and presented himself in due time at the young lady's house. She was surprised to see him, but greeted him cordially. "You forgot your overshoes last night," said he awkwardly, handing her the package. She thanked him and opened it. "Why, there's only one overshoe here," she exclaimed. "Yea, miss," said the blushing vaquero earnestly, "I'll bring around the other one to-morrow, and I only wish, miss, that you were a centipede. "—St. Louis Republic. T Characteristic Autographs. Count Enzenberg, the Hessian charge d' affaires in Prance, had one hobby—the collecting of autographs of famous men. On one of the pages of the Hessian's album the statesman Quizot had written: "All through my long career I have learned to forgive much and often, but to forget nothing." Tho sentiment is not a Christian one, nor is it notable for its worldly wisdom, It is strange that Guizot, who was a professed Christian and reputed to be worldly wise, should have written it. Ilia rival Thiers must have noticed the inconsistency, for underneath it he wrote: "A little shortness of memory cannot detract from the sincerity of forgiveness." Bismarck, while Prussian ambassador at Paris, being asked to write something on the same page, wrote: "As for myself, existence has taught me to forget many things, and to get myself forgiven for a great many more." —Youth's Companion. No Venomous Beetles. Of more than 40,000 sprues of beetles widely diffused over the earth's surface not one is known to be venomous, or possessed of a sting. Butterflies and moths have no mouths to eat with, only a proboscis to extract sweet juices from flowers. Neither do they grow after assuming the winged state, When in the caterpillar state they are voracious eaters. A company of some species will strip a, whole tree within a single day.—St. LOHJS Republic. There is paid out of the national treasury $120,000 annually to residents of Canada, many of whom have not seen the United States since they were mustered out at Washington at the close of the war. There is a specimen of the hairy crab in the British museum which, though not larger than a walnut, is saddled by iv sponge as large as a three pound tomato can, 10,000 Turkeys Wanted.
