Also an Interesting Account of the Late Sunday School Convention- Other County News. WESLEY. .Tuly 28.—Mr. Gallagher has concluded not to robulld his hay barn, which wns struck by lightning liist week Tuesday night. Ho has sola the northeast quarter of the block to Mr. Ward, and has rented him the balance of tho ground for stocking purposes. Mr. Wnrd is putting up a hay barn now 24x48, 14-foot posts, with a press ahd bale-shod, 14x48. It was a father hard blow on Mr. Ward, but he has energy and push and Is taking In hay.every day, and it will not be long till ho will bo running his press again in his new barn. During tho same storm Mr. Holfi-ich In Prolrto township had several head of cattle struck by lightning. John Longbottom had five head of hogs killed; a barn formerly owned by Sain. Wilford, five miles oawt of Wesley, in Hancock, was struck and burned to tho ground. Wo are informed by pnrUos living clone by Unit there wen. 1 six head of horses burnt up in it, too. Harvest IH on hand. Farmers have commenced cutting barley and oats. C. Ward claims that his crop of barley will go 76 bushel to tho acre. Mr. Platt of LuVerne was in our town Monday of this week. Attorney Quarton of Algona, was hero on business Monday. The political pot is beginning to bubble in this part of tho county, and about Thursday wo will begin to count noses, as that is tho dav sot for tho republicans "• at Wesley" to hol'd their caucus to chose' '-delegates to attend tho county convention. Some of us would like to be representative, county supervisor, in fact anything, gontlomen, you inny choose to give us, we are not particular, just so wo pot there. C. Ei Oleson wont to Clear Lake Monday on business. Or. S. McPhorson has boon soiling some very flno samples of apples'lately. Fruit of all kinds is a good crop In this llai't of tho county this year. Tho Sunday school convention hold hero Saturday evening and Sunday certainly was a great success. Rev. Whitlleld, Dr, Burr, and Mr. Doxsoo of . Algona were present. The programme was carried out in full. Rev. Whitfiold .gave a lecture Saturday evening, his •subject boing: "Why A re Wo HereV" The older seemed to bo at his best, and Ills remarks put an enthusiasm lnto)tho mooting that continued with it all the next day. Ho had to take tho early 'morning train Tor home tho next day and could not be present with us during the Sunday exorcises. Sunday morning at 10 a. in. tho morning services began, composed mostly of a song service. Then devotional exorcises were conducted by O. Robinson. Mr. DOXBOO then told lire object of the Sunday school convention and its organisa- tion, and why it was held at Wesley, Rev. McBride then read a paper, "'Qualification and Preparation for Teaching." The paper was well gotten up and drew out considerable discussion from several present. "Object of Or- ganisation," a paper by C. E. Oleson, was next road, which showed very plainly that no church or Sunday school .could be prosperous without an organi- sation to buck It up. To illustrate he called the attention to tho many institutions in this county, such as telegraph and railroad Systems, all of which are well organized. The next topic was, " Boneilt of Teachers' Meetings." Mr. Colby made a few remarks on tho subject and was followed by Dr. Barr. Ho told a very interesting story of the first teachers' mooting hojd In Algona, which was held in Mr. Ward's house, which was part • of his blacksmith shop, giving in detail the growth and outcome of those teaches' meetings in Algona. Tho next was a paper by Mrs. C. D. Daggott, subject, '' Am I My Brother's Keeper;"' which was scholarly and edifying, indeed. Mr. Doxseo then gave us a paper, "A Business Man's Relation to the Sunday School," which was certainly grand, and wo wish every business man in Wesley had been present and heard it; it was one of tho most • entertaining of anything on tho pro- gramme. At 2 p. m. tho afternoon session began. Dr. Barr gave us a paper, " The Bible; its Use in the Homo and Sunday School." The doctor had surely given it considerable thought, as it was very pointed and brought out tho beauties of that sacred book. The next jwas a couple of papers, "Shall Tom/'" jferanco Be Taught in tho Sunday School?" One of them, by Mrs. C. A. lugham, was road by Mr. Doxsoe, and brought out considerable discussion by Mr. Colby taking tho stand that the moral part by all means should be taught in tho Sunday school, and tho scientific part in tho public school, Rev. MoBrido spoke at some length on .the subject, also Mr. Doxsoo and Dr. Barr, all agreeing that it should bo taught in tho Sunday school. Mr. At- Jkinson then spoke of tho progress of Sunday school at Wesley. Mr. Lloyd closed tho afternoon session with parting words by lirst going back and toll- iug us of the first Sunday school hold in Wesley, some It years ago, and Jinally closed his remarks with very sympathetic words, and wishing all Uod-speod in tho grand work. Benediction was then pronounced by Rev, Thompson of Corwith. Tho timo was all occupied; not a minute was lost; everyone present will join in saying it was one Of the pleasant gatherings ever held in Wesley, and we have many things to remember Rev. Whitfield, Dr. Barr, and Mr. Doxsoo of Algona for, and wish to say here that if thoy should over come to our town again on any other occasion they will moot with a hearty welcome. Tho convention was wrtll attended and well spoken of by all those present. The Bancroft nine came over hero oue day last week to play tho Wesley nine a match game of ball. It rather took the boys by surprise on account of not getting tho notice of their coining in. time. It seems the Bancroft boys sent a message tho night before, but it did not reach hero till morning. By that time some of the players were out in the country, while one or two others WQi'e laid up for repairs from tho effects of a game previous to this. The Bancroft boys felt 11 little disappointed when they found they came over for nothing. Some of thorn remarked that our boys had no sand which is not the case. The message did not get here in timo, was the trouble. Since this has happened we have gotten ub a nine that will play those Bancroftites and let them know that they have not only sand, but gravel, and la composed of the heavy men of Wesley, such as P. Ash, Ed Kunz, M. Cory, M. Taylor, J. H. Pord, Ous. Studer. A. Studer, Jr., Jake Huber, and Mike Fox. They will find that M. Taylor and J. H. Pord are good fielders, while Gus Studer 8fl,ys he is not so good on the run but will make as good a back stop as anything on the ground. Now, wo want to say to Bah' croft, if you want anything, say where and we will sot tho timo. Don't send any more messages, as they are liable to bo delayed; but send your challenge through the columns of the U. D. M., and we will be sure to get it, as wo have boon taking that paper for the last ten years and have never missed a copy* This is known as the reserve nine, and Is ready to befriend our boys when they are not In shape to got together. Some of them have been on the turf for close to 70 years, and have never been beaten in a match game of base base ball in all that time. J. B. Winkle of Algona was in town looking after tho sowing machine business. W. C. Danson and L. M. B. Smith of Algona wore in town Tuesday on business. Mrs. J. V.

The best story of the season is one D. A. Haggard tells on himself. For reasons not mentioned he was in n hurry to get to Cresco yesterday, and took the now road east of the fair ground. Now this road boasts tho premium mud hole in Kossuth county, as a number of victims this spring can testify, and his team got into it. Before it got out he found it necessary to remove most of his clothing and haul out tho buggy by hand. This operation resulted in a condition which did not warrant an immediate re-donning of his apparrel and he concluded to walk on and let the mud dry, thinking there were no houses along the road. But below the . fail- ground fence are several houses, and as luck would have it all tho people were out. Our successful auctioneer is not easily abashed, but he was n,bout to take to the brush, when his companion explained that he had an insane man in charge and that no attention need be paid him, and they passed on to the obscurity of the woods. We judge from tho general tone of D. A.'s remarks that he does no recommend the road by tho fair ground to tho traveling public. A Ijittle (Jirl's Experience in a Lighthouse. Mr. and Mrs. Loren Troscott are keepers of the government lighthouse at Sand Beach Mich., and arc blessed with a daughter four years old. Last April she was taken down with measles, followed by a fearful cough and turning into a fovor. Doctors at home and at Detroit treated her, but in vain; she grew worse rapidly until she was a mere "handful of bones." Then she tried Dr. King's New Discovery, and after the use of two and a half bottles was completely cured.
