IU !OHN GROVE WILL fviufisff rov aoop LIVERY Afrfi HEA&i) AT the Erefat* of ilie Week ilecorded In a Faithful Manner. ; WESLEY, Dec. 13.— The " beautiful" snow has come at last. Our young f>eo- ;>le seem to be enjoying its presence Tery much, judging by the merry ring of sleigb bells. Our poultry dealers are doing a good Business now. Farmers are marketing >heir poultry, and there appears to be no let-up on the turkeys and chickens. M. J. Mayor of Cor with was in town Friday last on business. Gus Paulson and Jack Norton drove over to Corwith Sunday afternoon. Abuer Flack drove over from Buffalo 'enter Saturday evening. He reports ihat Buffalo Center is now as large as Wesley and is still booming. Mr. Flack is carrying on the hotel business and having a good run. Our depot agent, Mr.* Kelley, was very much elated the other day. Business had been so rushing of late that tie has been up nearly all night to attend to it, so last Friday evening the company ordered a man to come to Wesley. Ho came, and stayed one night, iiud then they ordered him to lear Lake. When Mr. Kelley was asked what bad become bis of night man he remarked that he was like the average show, for "one night only." Our Suodny school has decided to have a Christmas true on Christmas evening, which everybody is invited to attend. It is the intention that every little boy and girl in Wesley shall get something on the Christmas tree. The programme of exercises will tuke place on Christmas evening. Wesley is to have a harness shop. Mr. Burbank of Algona and D. W. White are putting in a full stock of rpady-made harness in the building formerly occupied by the republican club. They intend to have a good workman to help them all the time and will be ready to turn out first-class work at all times. This is something that Wesley has been in need of for some time, and we hope the gentlemen will meet with success. The boom issue of the Wesley Reporter came out last week and it was a knocker. Everybody should read it and see what a booming city we have. T. H. Wads worth of Algona was in our town Tuesday on business. Markets: Wheat, 45@50c; oats, 22@ 24c; barley, 25@30c; flax, 90c; hogs, $5.50; cattle, lie; hay, §3@4.50. Mrs. Anna Harris, who will lecture here Wednesday evening, was in town today looking the field over. As though a UHrasftna flower* had jost found A Strand «weet tongae th»i only Is under- In fairy lands no earthly road may reach. "How Shall the glory fall Of my immortal tale, Or any silence o'er my song prevail" the evening star upon the edge of night Hang like a dewdrop on a dark leaf* rim: Throbbed like a heart o'erbrimmed with pare delight, Gathering new splendor while the skies grew dim. "How shall my beauty fade, Who In the May night's shade lenceforth am an eternal brightness made?" But the sea sighed through all Its depths of gray — The sea complained On every lonely shore: Too well I know your fate, ye joys of May, Heard and beheld a thousand times before! Your passionate faith Is vain! I only, 1 remain, When light and song are fled forevermorer . — M. O. Gilliiigton in London Spectator. The Use of "Will 1 .: and "Shalt." There is probably no more confusing part of the English language than that •which regulates the proper use of ""shall" and "will." The reply of James Russell Lowell to the -woman who wrote, saying, "I would be very much obliged for your autograph," has been often in print, and has undoubtedly been clipped for scrap and pocketbook reference by many persons. The poet essayist granted her request in the following fashion: "Pray, do not say hereafter, 'I would be obliged.' If you would be obliged, be obliged and be done with it. Say, '1 should be obliged, 1 and oblige, yours truly, James Russell Lowell." An additional hint to go with this "cut me out" is that of the old verse: In the first person simply shall foretells; In will a threat or else a proiniso dwells; Shall in the second or the third doth threat: Will simply then foretells the future feat. Or "shall" in the first and "will" in the second and third persons are to be regarded as simple declarations, and both in all other cases convey a threat.— New York Times. Bncklen'8 Arnica Salve.

The Daily Reveille of Whatcom, Wash, says: "T. C. Burnett, the democratic candidate for sheriff, was taken violently ill Clearbrook. He had all the symptoms 01 Asiatic cholera, and for an hour or two it was feared he would die. They finally gave him a dose of Chamberlain's Colio, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, which revived him until a physician arrived."

The story told by Scott, the keeper who went to America with Jumbo, of the elephant's death is sad. The animals were being loaded while the circus was performing, and Scott was walking Jumbo along the railroad between two rows of trucks. There was another elephant with them —a dwarf elephant bought in Singapore in 1883 to be "clown elephant." Jumbo would not go anywhere without him. On this occasion the small elephant was going in front, and when the train came round the curve Jumbo caught hold of his chum and pushed him between two freight trucks. This saved the small one, who only got his leg broken, but Jumbo was badly cut up by the heavy locomotive and died about an hour after. —St. James Budget., Regard for Sacred Trees. Throughout the length and breadth of India the Ficus religiosa, under which Buddha rested for seven years plunged in divine thought, is dedicated to religious worship, and may on no account be felled or destroyed. With more universal but not less sincere reverence do the peasants of Russia prostrate themselves before the trees which they are about to cut, and deprecate the vengeance of the deities whose resting places they then proceed to destroy.—Q-entle- man's Magazine.
