, • ur ALGONA, IOWA, THE OOUfll'K TOWJKTS. WESLEY. , WESLEY, May 30. — F. M. Batts arrived here from Chicago lest Thursday morning. In speaking of the mud and wet weather he says this part of Iowa lias been very fortunate; that evey- tbing in the line of vegetation and farm work here is ahead of anything' he saw between here and Chicago. There is tto question hut what northwestern Iowa is ahead of other sections this spring, 98 it generally is every year. Mr. Wbitson has been on the sick list for several days. j. H, Ford, who has been confined to the house nearly all winter, is now able to be around again. We have been imfonned that Mr. A J. Sprague has received his long looked-for pension. He only receives SB a, month, but ft is a starter, and Mr. Sprague in a man that is thankful for small favors. Farmers are all busy planting. There will be as much corn planted in this part of the county this spring as there was last year. The warm sun and drying winds have dried the. ground off nicely, and most all of the farmers were ready to commence planting when the wet weather set in. and are now improving the time. We heard a farmer say the other day that hr> did not feel one bit discouraged over the wet weather or lateness of the spring: that old Kossuth would come out on top of the heap as she always bad done anyway. Mipu'M.-ittie Welherbee of Nora Springs haa been here for the past week visiting her sister, Mrs. Z. A. Tryon. Our city election last Saturday was <iuite a lively affair. There were two tickets in the field and nearly a full vote polled. Z. S. Barrett was elected mayor; J. S. Gallagher, recorder; E. F. Bacon, J. Huber, F. Hume. T. A. Clark, H. C. Hollenbeek and G. W. Eddy, trustees. ' S. X. Way, J. P. Johnson, G. W. Eddy, and Z. S. Barrett are going to attend the republican national convention at Minneapolis. It is a Elaine delegation, and they a re afraid he won't gej. there unless Wesley is fully represented. We hope the boys will have a pleasant time and not let the Harrison delegates spring a door- step caucus on them. Elder Black of Alg-ona will hold his third quarterly meeting at this place June 11 and 12. Memorial services were observed here today. Our business men closed their respective places of business from 2 to 4 p. m. Our public schools closed lor the afternoon, and all of the school children and their teachers marched to the cemetery, where they strewed flowers on the graves of those who risked their lives for the defense of the country. Rev. McBride made a very brief address, and also R«v. A. Tryon made •brief remarks. No one thought of having any services of the kind till in the morning, when they found that there were no trains running that people could get to Aleona on! when it was suggested that we observe the day here. Taking sill things into consideration everything pertaining to it was a success. Our band was out and rendered some very line music, for which ourpeo- ple are very thankful. _ t There came near being a big fire in our town one morning of last week, which may yet prove serious. It seems a lady got off the 9:55 passenger with a couple of small children, and put up at the Sherman house, the landlord consigning her to the parlor bedroom. Now right over the parlor is where the editor of the Wesley Reporter and couple more of our boys room together. During the night one of thelittleehild- ren began to fret and cry, which seemec to annoy the old bachelor minds above in the editor's room, and they began to murmur that they could not sleep. But the editor's fertile brain soon brought forth an idea, and no quickei thought than done, he jumped out o: bed and lapped his drawers around the stove pipe, down close to the register, to shut off the sound from below, which had the desired effect. All then turned in and were soon in the land of dreams. But when morning came the lady below thought she had better have little fire to warm up the room, ana touched a match to the tinder in the stove. She soon discovered that there was something burning around the pipe above, and gave the alarm. When the landlord rushed into the room above he found the editor with a pitcher ol water in one hand and part of a pair ol burning drawers in the other, while his room mates were holding a ghost dance around the stove pipe. The editor lias taken a very bad cold since then, and some of the boys thought it would bo a good idea to chip in and buy him another pair of drawers, while others think a bottle of some good cough syrup would be best. Markets: Wheat, 68c; oats, 25c; corn, 28; flax, 72;' hay, $7; hogs, $3.80. Ike Walton received a message this morning informing him of the death o: his son at Clarinda, Iowa. He was past 81 years of age. He was an invalid evei Bince he was eight years old, subject to epileptic fits, Mr. Walton always kept him at homo with him till about four years ago when his friends prevailed upon him to let him be taken to the asylum, where lie could be cared for better than at homo. Mr. Walton disliked to have him go, but y". Ided to the entreaties of his friends. The re' mains wore buried at the above named place. _ LU VERNE. LuVEKNE, May 30.— I. P. Harrison will build a 30 foot addition to his drug store as soon as ho can, which will make his store room 00 feet long and 20 wide, Fire consumed quite a Inrge burn oul on the place known as the Coulter's farm, about three miles east of town Cause not known. Some of our farmers report corn coming right along — some of it through the ground. The Wagner vs. Wagner case, thai was set for trial here, was changed to the district court at Algona, to be tried the next term. G. C. Burtis went back to Algonu on the 25th to spend a few days. He will return and cull on old friends before ho returns to the west. FENTON. FENTON, May 30.— Henry Boever intends building a house as soon as the roads are suitable for hauling lumber. Supt. Reed was visiting schools in Fenton last week. Farmers are busy getting then ground ready for planting, while a few nave finished. >, J, 1<. Reid, butter maker c^t the Fenton creamery^ made a trip to Rockwell and brough't back a partner. The boys made a mistake and serenaded the wrong party. Geo. Boyle was in Fenton buying hogs for shipping the latter part of last week. , Rev. Schwietert, pastor of the German M. E. church at Burt, walked from that place to fill his appointment at West Fenton Sunday last It is, getting to be all the go nowadays to go part way with a team and the rest of the way afoot. Mrs. Zweifel is having a fine bouse erected on her farm in West Fenton. Mr. Saw veil was up this way visiting his old neighbors. No need of Ixoab's ark just yet, at least.
