THE tfPPJEK DM MOlNBSt ALGONA, IOWA, AUGUST 26, 1891, THESE SPECIALS BY POST, WESI-EY. WESLEY, Aug. 25. — Last Sunday morning John Oovenor's house was consumed by fire. He got up in the morning, built a fire in the store and went out to feed his horne*. When he came back to the house he found the room inside completely on fire. Everything he had was consumed. Mr. Govenor came to this county last spring from Decatur, 111., and located on anew piece of land five miles north of Wesley. It will be rather discouraging to him to meet with such a streak of bad luck. Last week we announced the sickness of A. J. Wright, a farmer living two miles west of town, but this Week we are under the painful duty to announce his death. Mr. Wright took his bed on Thursday. Dr. Hill was called and pronounced his case inflammation of tho bowels. He kept growing worse, when on Tuesday evening, Aug. 18, death came to his relief. Mr. Wright came to this county from the central part of the state about five years ago and opened up a new farm two miles west of town. His honest, straightforward, and genial way soon made him many warm friends who can only speak of him as being an upright man. He leaves a wifo and five children to mourn the loss of a dutiful husband and a loving father. The funeral took place Wednesday afternoon, Aug. 11), in the church l)i-.'-i>, conducted by Rev. Mc- Brlde. Mrn. Wright has the sympathy of all in hoi- mid bereavement. Bender Bros. & Co. have just completed an addition to their warehouse here, and also put in a new set of wagon scales.

BUFFALO FORK, Aug. 24. Threshing by steam seems to be all tho rage Keibsaman brothers were turning out grain at a groat pace all last week ii tliis neighborhood, and will find work I'nough to keep them busy this week Messrs Giles and Wiltse are about ready to start thoir steamers, Those gentlemen were rather unfortunate ii getting their machines out from Algona, owing to some weak bridges upon tho road, but will soon be making tlu grain lly, Among tho improvements in this viicnity is a good barn, 10x04, which A. Myers has just completed; 'also the Bartlett brothers have raised their shod and put on a good roof, making a noat and comfortable building. Many more improvements of tho kind are needed for tho comfort of our dumb frionds. Messrs. Eddy and Buttorfiold had a lino Holsteiu calf shipped them to last week from the famous Hampton herd of Holste'lus. The gentlemen think that with the present facilities for making butter more attention should bo ptild to the good milkers, as our creamery butter sells at tho very top price iu Now York, making it ono of tho most profitable products of tho farm. 13.

Woflatid Writes of ItathB and Sunshine on tlic Const —A Chnrfteterlatic Letter, LONG BEACH, Cut., Aug. 9.— That spirit of unrest so common to the American people that Impels them to leave comfortable homes and congenial occupation for a change of decenary and conditions, is just the same in this land ot sunshine as in more inhospitable regions. It is considered quite the thing for Los Angelenos to go out from town to the mountain resorts or to the sea side and spend a week in what is called taking a rest and having a pleasant time. Accordingly, when brother Willet S. and his family arrived we packed up the bathing suits and old lothes and big straw hats and hied us down to the beach, where they could wash off the Texas dust and perspiration in the briny deep. The long stretch of sand, the ebb and low of the unceasing waves, the shells, ;he swings, the swim, and ocean sunsets make one continuous round and source of enjoyment, not to boys arid girls alone, but also to children of an older growth; and when at last you are BO tired that all these fail to please or entertain, you can lie down to rest to ;he soothing, sonorous sounds of the rolling surf; and in your dreams bo 'ocked to and fro, as in the cradle of he deep. Often, of a sultry Sunday norning, a« many as 1,500 people leave Los Angeles to wpend the day at the sea, and when this mob of big and little, old and young, white, black, and brown ias donned a bathing suit, short of icck and shorter of limb, the transformation is most wonderful to behold, for ,he powdered and padded and proud- icartcd have lost all their glory in a lathing suit; and that which was left n the bath house is often more than, that which was brought ontotlie beach* "or the bow-legged, knock-kneed, and disjointed of limb or feature are exposed in all their native simplicity, and one is caused to marvel at the false opinion ho has heretofore held concern- ng the beauty and symmetry of the lumtm form, and IIH to its being a sample of nature's perfect work. Ho.ro in a glowing illustration of the superiority of art over nature as seen 3\' tho eye of the ninteenth century. Now, imagine this crowd immersed in Lhe boiling, foaming surf, some laughing, some jumping 1 , some swimming, spuio screaming, and babies crying until the war of the waves is drowned in u pandemonium of confusion of noises. Some stay near the shore line to wade, Homo go farther out to battle with the surf, or dive through it as it, sweeps on its course, some go still beyond to lloat upon the majestic swells as they roll in riven tonor toward tho shore, and strike out for the distant buoy anchored in tho deep water, there to rest and breathe a while as the waves dash against or wash over the uncertain resting place. In time the water begins to 3hill, and then there comes a continual line of bathers seeking the hot sand on tho high beach. Somo buxom, dashing beauty with bangs u-danglo, comes Iripping with water at every point and takes herself to tho hot sand, in which she rolls and tumbles until she more resembles a Yumti Indian in war paint than a beloved daughter of civilization; but she is only one among a thousand of like appearance. The ring-streaked, striped, speckled,' and spotted heads of the patriarch of old was not more mottled than is this same company from tho city of the Angles. An hour's clip in salt water calls for an hour's nap afterward, and then these two call for a dinner sixty minutes long, then a two hours' rest, and you are ready for a repetition of the morning's experience, including the refresh- montH. After suuh a day's employment is ended you take a stroll down onto the long pier that stretches beyond the surf line, and from your height above look down into the waters beaten white by 'the two opposing currents that have mot and devoured each other, leaving a foaming, boiling, plunging surf impelled shoreward by the incoming swell from the sea. Hero goes swimming by, with a succession of lunges, a school of porpoise, those scavengers of tho sea; there comes a crowding, surging, fighting school of deep-sea fish, seeking food along tho shore. The breeze that has been blowing landward all day has ceased, and there is a quietness and serenity broken only by the sound ol the surf, that is made doubly impressive by the beauty of the setting sun. It takes an artist to paint the picture of a sunset in tho Pacific,. so 1 shall not attempt it. Tho balminess of the air, the fragrance of tho flowers, the evergreen of tho orange grove togethei with tho golden sky and the seven fold colors of the rainbow aro only the coarser elements that make up tho glories ol a sunset with mountains for shading, a sky for canvas, and a quivering ocean for a background. Aflor the suu has gone the lighthouse suddenly gleams forth, the vessels in the harbor hang out their lanterns, and tho myriad insect life of the water caps each crested wave with its phosphorescent light until tho sea appears a rolling sheet, of lire, and then over all the rising moon adds its soft luster, stretching out across the boundless waste, a groat highway, a silvery sheen of quivering, waving lig-ht. Mid such scenes and conditions life is full of life, and the human heart atunes itself to tho soft touches of nature, and all the work Booms moved with a kindly feeling o. sympathy and harmony to make foi men a paradise hero below.

One of the sad deaths of the week was ;hat of Henry Munch, which occurod at his :iomo in Whittcmore on- Monday morning of this week at 1 o'clock. His death was the result of a stomach trouble, from which he has been u sufferer for several mouths past, and for which all medical assistance seemed unavailing. The funeral rites took place at 2 o'clock p. m. yesterday, and were attended by a large number of friends who went to pay their last respects to the memory of an honorable and highly esteemed citizen. Assisted by Rev. Weasel tho services were conducted jointly by the West Bond post, G. A. R., and Medium lodge of Odd Fellows, in both of which societies he was a respected member. Tho services were held at the school house. The Rev. Wessel paid a pleasing tribute to the memory of deceased, recounting the many virtues of a man who has been active in business and social circles for many years. Perhaps the largest funeral procession ever seen in Whittemoro then wended its way to the cemetery, where all that was mortal of Henry Munch was laid to rest. Besides the post members from West Bend and the Odd Fellows from Emmetsburg, delegations of post members nud Odd Fellows from Algona were in attendance. Deceased was a German by birth, For some years he was a resident of Cassville, Wis. He enlisted in the Ninth Wisconsin infantry,.and made a splendid record as a soldier in the war of tho rebellion. He came to Iowa some 15 or 18 years ago, locating on a fuvm in Ellington township, Palo Alto county.. Later he engaged in business at Emmotsburg, where, however, ho suffered n reverse of fortune. About the time that Whittemoro sprung up he moved there and opened a general merchandise store, which he has since successfully conducted. He was about 51 yours of aye. He leaves a wife and six children to mourn his loss. Whittemore loses a good man and a valued citizen in the death of Henry Munch. Guaranteed Cure for La Grippe.
