MAD DO&S NEAR WESLEY. . Stock JlylnE From i)os: IMtcs In Hnn- cock County—A Serious Accident- Other iinte News Items. WESLEY, Juno 13.—There wits a mad dog made its appearance in Bingham township, Hancock county, about three weeks ago. After obiting a couple of horses and a cow for parties living on Charles Barber's farm, it was shot and killed by Julius Bidgood, who is stopping at the above named place. Since then farmers have noticed that quite a number of their stock have been bitten. John Bingham has lost about GO head of sheep and several cows. Wm. Tower lost one cow, a young man that is stopping at his place two head of work horses. All of these showed signs of being bitten. Farmers in that vicinity are greatly alarmed about the state of things and are waging war on all dogs that come in their way. Mrs. G. C. Howard of Boonotownship, Hancock county, met with a painful accident last Friday while hero in Wesley. She came to town in the evening horse back tending to some business she had to see to. She got into the buggy with her son, George, to go home, intending to lead her horse behind the buggv. In some way or other the hitching strap was wound around her hand. When the team started rather quick her horse pulling back at the same time the hitching strap was drawn in such a way that it severed her thumb from her hand. She went to Dr. Hill's office, whore she had it fixed up. This will bo quite severe on Mrs. Howard as she is quite an elderly lady, and the warm weather we are having will make it very painful for a time. Our editor, John Ford, has been on the sick list for a few days and is now visiting his folks at What Cheer. Mr. Ford undoubtedly needs the rest he is taking at present as he has stuck very c'ose to his business, doing all the work himself, which everybody knows, who was ever in a printing office, is very confining. He has secured the services of Mr. Clarke of Brilt to tend to busipess while he is away. Rodney Hill of Britt was in our town Sunday calling on his brother, J. E. Hill. Elder Black of Algona held his third quarterly meeting at this place Saturday and Sunday. The meeting was well attended and the elder preached us a very good and logical sermon. Dr. McCormick's family have moved from Algona, here. The doctor is preparing to build an addition to his house 24x24 with a cellar full size of the house. F. M. Bacon's new house is now about completed, also S. X. Way's new house in park addition is about ready for the plasterers to begin work on. Quite a number of our town boys with their teams have gone up north to work on the new railroad. Abner Flack has taken a .contract to put in one-half mile of grade near Forest City. He will move his family up there with the intention of locating somewhere along the line, where he can go into the hay business. We wish Mr. Flack success in his now enterprise. Our schools closed last Friday after nine months of very successful school. Our teachers have served us faithfully and have the best wishes of the board and the scholars and patrons of the schools. Mr. N. Someson, who has been the principal for the past two months, has proved himself a very good educator. Mrs. Colby, who taught the intermediate department, needs no comment as she is one of Kossuth county's most successful teachers and has given us good service for the past year as she always ,has done whenever she has taught before. Miss Jennie Pettibone has taught our primary department for the past four and a half years and needs no comment either as her long and faithful service as a teacher in our school here is enough to convince the public that her services are highly appreciated by the patrons and the board. On Friday afternoon the teachers and scholars held a picnic in Mr. Hume's grove close by the school ground, which was a very enjoyable affair. For the past few Sundays somebody has been doing considerable shooting in our town limits. Now we think there is a place and a time for all things but undoubtedly in the town limits is no place for anyone to be shooting and certainly Sunday is no timo for such work. We hope that our town council will at an early time arrange things so as to put a stop to such work, also to many other things of like nature that are seen on our streets of Sunday evenings. Farmers in this part of the county are feeling happy. The warm weather for the past ten days is bringing the corn along nicely and by the 1st of July it will be farther along than it was last year. Small grain is doing well and bids fair to be a larger crop than last season. The acreage of wheat, barley and flax is larger than last year while oats and corn will be about the same in acreage. Z. S. Barrett, G. W. Eddy, S. X, Way and J. P. Johnson arrived home last Thursday from Minneapolis, where they had gone to tend the convention. The boys are members of the Iowa Republican club and went away from here shouting for Elaine. We cautioned them before they left to look out or the Harrisonites would spring a doorstep caucus on them and run in their man. Mr. Barrett said they intended to be there in time to prevent such things, but there is such a thing as beingtoo early as this proved to be. Part of them came home plumed up in great shape before the nomination was made and by the time they got the dust splinters out of their eyes, word came that Ben. had got there. Zim. 'says he was just fooling he knew Harrison would get there and he was always a Harrison man anyhow, and Harrison is all right. M. J. Kelly, who has been visiting his folks at Nora Springs for the past week or two, returned here Saturday morning and is now at his old btand again as depot agent. Children's day exercises will be held at the M. E, church next Sunday evening. There is a good programme. Let everybody come out and encourage the children by giving them a full house. Geo. A. Pi-ink and wife, W. W. Walton and Miss Ada Hollenbeck drove over to Algona Sunday afternoon returning in the evening.
