The success of this meeting was largely due to Rev. Cummins. A young child of James Gallion is reported as being very sick. Rev. Wolfe of Algona was in town over Sunday to attend the Baptist anniversary. A part of our schools were closed last week on account of the illness of the teacher. Mrs. F. S. Van DeBoe, formerly of this place but now of Des Moines, is in toWn at tending the Baptist anniversary and visiting relatives and friends. The grist mill question is still before the people of the town, and mighty public meetings are being held with reference thereto in the school house. Miss Alice Johnson is reported to bo ou the sick list at present. What has become of the agitation with reference to the Sons of Veterans lodge to be organized here.

Bancroft Register: A year ago it was thought that Bancroft did a good business, and the Register reported the shipment of 652 car loads of freight, 288 of live stock, 135 of grain, and 129 cars of hay. This was not two cars per working day, yet wo ship ped more live stock than any station in the county by two to one. This year wo pondered over three large books at the depot during most of yesterday afternoon, and found that the number shipped during 1890 was 939, just three car loads per working day in the year. Grain heads the list at 339 cars; live stock 322, and hay 278. This would make nearly 60 train loads of full car loads, while the amount of poultry, junk, farm produce, and other merchandise was very heavy. The number of carloads of poultry is estimated at eight, and nearly that many cars of junk were loaded during the same period. If there is another town in the county that can equal this showing we want to hear from them right away. The freight earnings of this station for the same time is §57,131.11 with corrections during the year not included amounting to about $10,000, making over $67,000. The earnings on tickets does not keep pace in proportion for so many through tiolwts are sold here that come from and are credited to the Algona station. 82603.39 paid for the tickets sold here, making the Chicago & Northwestern total earnings §70,000. If there is anything that Bancroft people are proud of it is the business the merchants do, and the above shows something of the amount of our doings, BANCROFT, Jan. 19.—J. M. Henderson of Thor was here last week. He says Bancroft is a fine place. J. A. Freeh was in Algona last Saturday. Quite a number of young people attended the dance at Burt. Bancroft, or a young lady here, has a great attraction for Bro. Hays of the Republican. . A DEAD CM IN ALASKA A MINER'S SfOftY OF A DESEfitEtJ AlND ICE COVERED tOWN. $ I O.OO $5.OO $3.50 Bancroft.

L. -"Vaylor, last Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock. The deceased, who has been the popular teacher in room No. 3 in the past year, has in her short residence here made a host of friends who were shocked and pained by her death, she having been sick not quite a week.

SENECA, Jan. 17.—There was a very large attendance at the regular meeting of the alliance on Saturday last. The committee appointed to visit several co-operative creameries and gather information concerning their cost, manner of operation, and profits, made a very full and encouraging report, which was accepted and a vote of thanks passed for their services. After some discussion of the report and the transaction of other business which included the election of officers, the Seneca Star, a paper prepared under the auspices of the alliance, was read by the editor. The alliance then adjoureed to meet on Saturday, Jan. 34. On the same day after the adjournment of the alliance a meeting of the farmers of Seneca was held to take action in regard to organizing a co-operative creamery association. J. B. Carr was chosen chairman, and W. W. Alcorn, secretary. A subscription list for stock was opened and also a list of patrons and a committee appointed to circulate the same, and the meeting adjourned to meet on the 17th inst to hear their report and take further action. A series of sociables are to be held to secure funds to add to the Sunday school library. .. SENECA, Jan. 19.—A large and enthusiastic meeting of those interested in establishing a co-operative creamery was held in the Center school house on the 17th inst. John Wallace of Algona was present and submitted a proposition to the meeting which looked to a delay in the matter, giving the firm he represented an opportunity to put in a separator plant and pledging themselves to pay the same rates as the co-operative creameries did, proportionately accord ing to the total amount of milk furnished. This proposition was not favorably received the majority being evidently fully determined to proceed to build and operate for themselves. The committee reported that the milk of over 500 cows was promised, and that the sum of $3,000 in shares of SSOeach had been subscribed. The subscribers then voted to proceed to orpamze and adopted a legal form of organ! ..toon, and adopted a set of by-laws. Ihe follow- inor persons were chosen as direotois. Chas P 0 Fish, Wm. Klein, Geo. D. Fuller, Albert Jacobson, Wm. Ormiston, J. B. Parr P W. Jensen. There was an evident 'determination to push the matter forward and make it a success. Good for pittle Kliody.

Since the story of the Muir glaciet mirage first became known yottr correspondent has made every effort to get substantial news coiicetnitig it, but beyond the statements of Professor Willoughby, and the word of one or two who had seen the mirage, nothing tangible could be obtained. By the steamer Eider, which arrived recently at Victoria from the north, came a miner, who left the vessel at that port, and did not go on to San Francisco, as he at first intended. From this miner, who is a very intelligent man, a moe i remarkable story was obtained, and the first description of the Silent City is here given. George H. Kershon is the name given by the narrator of the tale. Kershon is a hardy looking man, with a well knit frame, indicative of an ability to withstand physical hardship, while his clear, blue eyes are a surety that whatever he undertakes he will carry through. "Yes." he said, "I think I am the first white man who ever gazed on the frozen city of the north. In the summer of 1883 I was one of a party of six who left here to go north prospecting. Of the other fivo 1 know not where they are. We took the steamer to Juneau, where we left her. buying a small sloop to take our kits up to Yukon. After several weeks of awful toil we reached a fork. "I was for going up this fork and prospecting, but the other five were against it; but as I was determined to go I left the party, engaged an Indian canoe, with two bucks, and started up off this unknown fork. We had a terrible time. The stream narrowed m between high cliffs and shot with dizzy swiftness down the gulches, making it necessary to tow the canoe by means of a line from the banks, two doing this, while the third man rested. WOODS AND ICE. "After that it was a bit easier. The river broadened out and the country was more level. The banks were well wooded and game was plentiful. " r c kept on like this, always going north, when after six weeks a range of mountains were sighted. At length we reached the wild country again, and the stream, which had been subdividing itself into lesser ones, soon became too difficult to navigate. This was almost at the foot of the mountain range spoken of. Here I determined to camp for the winter, and good quarters were found. "Before long the cold came, and at times it was impossible to stir from cover. Especially was this the case when the wind blew. At other times it was fairly comfortable, although the lack of sun made it gloomy enough. "One day I determined to try to scale one of the mountains near us, as I got so tired and weary with being penned up in such a confined place. This idea I put before the Indians. One of them said ho would go with me; the other would not risk it, so he was left in camp. "We went right up the line of the frozen river, which, being a solid mass_ of ice, made r. good roadway. Following this for about twenty miles, at a pretty steep rise, we reached a. plateau between the foothills and high range. Here the stream ended and we started to climb one of the big hills. After a lot of hard work we reached a point near the summit. A wonderful'view was had from here, but the strangest thing was a city in one of the valleys. "You may bet I was surprised to see it. At first I thought it was some f an- tast'c arrangement of the ice and snow which had assumed the form of- a city, but ex-amination with a glass showed that such was not the case, it being too regular in appearance. A. SILENT CITY. "It wiis a city, sure enough. "Determined to see more of it, I commenced to work downward, although the buck was rather frightened, he evidently not considering it 'good medicine.' After several hours of hard work I reached the outskirts of this mysterious city, and found that this place was laid out in streets, with blocks of strange looking buildings, what appeared to be mosques, towers, ports, etc., and every evidence of having been built by art. "The whole was of solid ice, or seemed to be, but blows from a hatchet on one of the walls disclosed the fact that beneath this barrier of ice was some sort of build- ng material. It looked to be wood, but if stonelike hardness, and apparently petrified. "The silence around the place was (something ghostly. Not the slightest sound broke the awful stillness of the place, which, added to the weird look of ;he empty streets, made it grewsome enough. I soon got tired of investigating the city, as the streets were blocked in many places with huge masses of ice, rendering passage almost impossible. The buck, too, became uneasy, and we started on the return trig, reaching camp the next day, tired, but satisfied that we had been the first men to gaze oathat silent city for centuries. "After spring had broke I made some strikes in nugget gold at the headwaters of the river, working with the Indians through the summer months, leaving camp for the Yukon about the end of August. We reached the river all right, the trip down being easy, and in due time I got back to Juneau, where I took the steamer for the south. "It was while I was at Juoeau I saw newspapers wjtb an account of the mirage seen at Muir glacier, I did not make any allusions to this, though, as I did not think any one would believe me, but I am positive that the. mirage of Muir gla- is the selection of the froaen city $10.00 $ 5.00 $3.50 FOE YOtTB FIEST CHOICE SECOND CHOICE FOB THIRD CHOICE OF The first lot cost from $12|to $15 and sold for $20.

Until tne poison is i expelled from the system, there can be no cure for tliis loathsome and dangerous malady. Therefore, tho only effective treatment is a thorough course of Ayer»s Sarsaparilla—the best of all blood purifiers. The sooner you begin tho better ; delay is dangerous. " I was troubled with catarrh for over two years. J tried various remedies, and was treated by a number of physicians, but received no benefit until i began to take Ayer's Sarsaparilla. A few bottles of this medicine cured me of this troublesome complaint, anil completely restored my health. -Jonso W. JJogga, Holman's Mills, N. 0. "When Ayer's Sarsapavilla w»s recommended to me for catarrh, 1 was inclined to-loubt its efficacy. Ha in ; tried so many remedies, with little ben- el t, I had no faith that anything would cure ine I became emaciated from Joss of appetite and impaired digestion. I had nearly lost tho sense of smell, and my system was badly deranged.
