MARCELLUS TAYLOR DEAD An Old Settler of Wesley Passes Away Rather Suddenly—Something About His Life. Othef Important News Matters from Our Good Neighbors on the East— Central County News. WESLEY, July 4.—We are called upon this week to record the death of vlarcellus Taylor, one of the early sot- .lers of Wesley, which occurred Sunday, July 3, at the residence of F. 3ume, where Mr. Taylor has made his :iome since his wife died about seven rears ago. Marcollus Taylor was born n Williamson, Wayne county, N. Y., n December, 1821. When two years of age his parents rainoved to Vermont. When he was seven years of age his paseuts removed to Erie county, New York. In 1847 Mr. Taylor came west, settling in Racine county, Wisconsin, and living there six years. He then moved to Elkport, Clayton county, Iowa, and in 1871 he removed to Kossuth county. He was married in 1850 to Miss C. M. Dana of McHenry, 111., and after twelve years of married life Mrs. Taylor died, in 1884. He married Mrs. Delia Hume of Illinois, who preceded lim to the other world about seven years ago. Mr. Taylor's health has seen failing for the past two years, and lis death has not come unexpected to iis friends and neighbors. Mr. Taylor was held in high esteem by all who cnew him, and was a straightforward and conscientious man. The funeral services took place at 2 p. m. today, ionducted by Rev. H. G. McBride, at the M. E. church, when the remains were taken to the Wesley cemetery and aid beside those of his wife. C. B. Hutchins of Algona was in our town Thursday of last week establishing a grade for our new sidewalks. Wesley is to have an eight-foot sidewalk from J. H. Ward's place of business to the Alliance store; also on the other side of the street. Marshal White made the rounds of ;he town last week with a gun, gather- .ng in the dog tax. Prof. Barslou of Britt stopped over night at Wesley on his way to Bancroft last week. Prof. Barslou's services have been secured as principal of the Wesley schools the coming year. Saturday was a busy day for our merchants. There were over 45 teams bitched on our streets at one time last Saturday afternoon. Richard Gray of Marion, S. D., is here preparing to move some of his effects to the above-named place. Bud Donaldson of .Clear Lake is here spending the Fourth with his best girl. A goodly number of our townspeople are celebrating the Fourth at Britt and Bancroft this year. Messrs. Brownson & Frise, formerly of Burt, have located in Wesley and are dealing in stock. They have taken in and shipped several cat-loads of hogs since their arrival. A couple of "dago" peddlers were in town one day last week. Marshal White got after one of them and demanded the two dollars license, but she refused to put up and he took her before our; city mayor. But when she looked on his shining countenance she began to weep and cry for mercy, which touched the tender feelings of our mayor, and he told her to depart in peace and not sell anything in the. corporation. She arose and shook the dust of his office from her feet and started toward the setting sun.. There are no flies on our mayor when you once touch his tender feelings. Geo. B. Hall met with quite a serious accident one day last week. He was running a ditcher over in Hancock county. They started to move the capstan, but forgot to detach the cable from the plow. When the teams started up the sweep came around and struck Mr. Hall on the side of the head, cutting a gash about two inches long over the left eye. Dr. Hill was called and dressed the wound. Up to this time he is much better, but is not yet able to be removed to his home. Miss Anna Longbottom, who has been attending school at Algona, came home Saturday to spend the Fourth, house, and is to begin the building tho loming week. Mr. Mentz has relatives visiting him. We are having plenty of fain* but iorn is making some rapid strlded to reach its accustomed height by the. Fourth. Perhaps it is discouraged Itt trying to keep its head above the mud, and is going the other way and is going to surprise the Chinese some of these days by appearing 1 on their side of the globe. Of course this is all suppo* sition. LOTTS CREEK. LOTTS CREEK, July 4.—The building jooni struck Lotts Creek this spring and still continues. Henry Beerstadt HIS built a house on the northeast quarter of 21; a house and barn has beett ilt on tho southwest quarter of'16;' and another is to go up on the southeast quarter of 10; Henry Behnke la hauling lumber for a barn 40x46, with. 16-foot posts, on the southeast quarter of 10. F. Schnuckle has his cellar excavated and the wall rock hauled for his store juilding, opposite tho creamery, on the southeast quarter of 3, and it is report^ cd that Win. Radig will build and open i meat market just south of Schnuck- e's store. Schnuckle sold his farm to E. Chrischillcs of Whittemore and ;akes part of his pay in goods. Land is advancing rapidly in price lour tho croamoi-y, Schnuckle and Radig paying Meleky $100 an aero for iheir lots, each taking one acre. It .ooks as though we should have to en- ,arge the township so as to move Kading's wagon shop in. Those wishing iO buy lots had bettor take advantage of present prices. The bell is hung on the Lutheran, church. It has a good sound. The cost was about $300. FENTON. FENTON, July 3.—Hurrah for the all- glorious Fourth, the day .of the small boy's delight. Everybody that is anybody celebrates, of course, and consequently everybody has an enjoyable time. Joseph Moore and wife went to Ruthven to spend the Fourth with their two sons. Miss Ethel Petrie returned to her home in Fairmont, Minn., "on Wednesday last, Joseph Moore has sold his farm to a Mr. Stein of Waterloo. The price paid was $35 an acre. Addie Moore sold her 80 to the same party at $15 an acre. John Curtis of Algona is to do the carpenter work on Henry Boevers' new THE CONGRESSIONAL SITUATION, Our KosButli Candidate Is Attracting Attention—Some Slight Discourage-- monts. THE UPPER DBS MOINES is meeting with some show of success in its efforts to keep J. W. Hinchon's congressional boom above water, and with that California cork screw firmly hitched to it we have hopes of pulling it through yet. The past week, however, has developed only republican endorsement for our contemporary, and that is not generally considered a good omen. The Carroll Herald notes: " J. W. Hinchon, the pleasant editor of the Algona Courier, is mentioned as a candidate for congress againstDolliver. He is one of the best democrats we know. We intend this as a compliment." That is the most cheerful sign on the political horizon. The Whittemoee Advocate is not so comforting: " Some of the democratic papers of this district are' urging' Bro. Hinchon of the Algona Courier to come out as a candidate for congressional honors against Dolliver. We are not too well 'posted on the affairs of this district, but it is our private opinion publicly expressed that Bro. Hinchon would come out of tho campaign about like Gov. Boies did the Chicago convention." And then comes the Des Moines Capital and refuses to recognize that Kossuth is in the race, saying: u Judge Cook of Eagle Grove is being groomed to run against Dolliver, while J. J. Russell of Jefferson is also talked of. Russell would be a republican if his digestion was unimpaired." So much for the republicans. On the democratic side the famous "farmers' friend," Bob. Bloom of Garner, writes a letter for Wily William Thompson of Humboldt, which we consider a direct thrust at our candidate. How else can be regarded such an appeal as this: " What we want is a man in congress to think, talk and act for us. One who does not talk to the printing press or pose for an audience, but whose heart is big and brave; one whose brain cannot only think but find out the responsive chords of his co-legislators and work and win for the robbed and wronged • tariff serfs of his district. As most of us are farmers, we want one who can. feel for the farmer; one whose heart has bled at the sight of tax distress; one whose thought and action has always been enlisted on the side of the laborer; one who has actually followed the plow, harvested the grain, reared the livestock and patiently protested against the bulk of his sweat and toil and weariness and life going into the pockets of corporation and tariff robbing ghouls, soulless suckers of blood; one who for years has been engaged in actual personal tilling of a Tenth district farm, and has experienced the high handed wrong-doing of republicanism on his own person and pocket." If Bro. Hinchon's "heart has bled" for the " tariff serfs" of the country it should be known at once, to avoid the crushing effect of this 'article. We feel confident: that he can meet the issue, and show that he has " protested against the bulk of bis sweat, etc.," going into the pockets of corporation ghouls." In any event we feel certain that the ghouls aforesaid have kicked vigorously at such invasion of their pockets. Happy Hooslei'8. Wai. Timmons, postmaster at Idavillo, Intl., writes: "Electric Bitters has done more for me thau all other medicines combined for that bad feeliug arising from kidney and liver trouble." John kealle, furm- and stockman of same place, pays: " find Electric Bitters to be the best kidney and liver medicine; it made me feel like a new man." J. W. Gardner, hardware dealer, same town, says: " Electric Bitters is }u.s( the thing for a man who is all run down and don't care whether be lives or die»." He found new strength, good appetite, aud felt just like he had a uew lease of life, Only 50v a. bottle at L. A. Sheetz. 1 3
