Torrey of Chicago, the noted evangelist who assisted Revivalist Moody in eastern work, is conducting a series of meeting's in Waucoma. During the service last week he fiercely attacked and denounced the Keeley treatment for the cure of drunkenness, proclaiming it the biggest fraud of the age; that it had been known and discarded by physicans before Dr. Koeloy was born. He said that its effect was to enfeeble the intellect and almost destroy the memory. The attack created great excitement at the time. Mrs. W. L. Thompson, a magnetic healer nnd spiritualistic medium, fell and broke both arms at Keokuk. She says the fracture was reduced by spirit power, claiming the shade of a doctor, who has been dead for many years, carne to her and set the broken bones. Local surgeons after examining the woman's injuries reset the broken members. Grace Parks, a young girl living in he should identify himself with an administration antagonizing a large part of the Iowa electorate on the silver question ho could have little hope of winning, and defeat would mean obscurity, while victory would place him in lino for the presidential nomination in 1896. In short, the considerations which actuated his letter to Cleveland are those which constrained the Iowa delegation at the Chicago convention to insist that he should have first place or none. the Fifth ward in Boono, fell into a well Opera Bloclc.

She came to the surface and clung to the sides of the well for two hours before being rescued. She will live. In Iowa the winter isn't so bad. One of the Inter Ocean correspondents from southern Florida says: "I am sitting by a good pine fire, with overcoat on, collar turned up and trying to keep warm." Another from Now Orleans says: "We have never before experienced such cold, distressing weather here." FKOM THE COUNTY TOWNS, WESLEY. WESLEY, Feb. 6.—C. E.

List your Lands with me if you want to make a quick sale,. Sixty-eight head of hogs were sold at auction for $8,252—an average of a $121 each—at a sale hold at West Liberty last week. This is said to bo the highest average ever known to be paid for hogs. One animal sold for $500. Over three hundred buyers, coming from all over the United States, were present, and the hogs will be shipped into nearly every state in the union. They were thoroughbred Poland Chinas, the property of T. J. Harris. Experiments in the treatment of lumpy jaw under direction of the department of agriculture have been completed. The results show that of 85 cattle treated 68 were completely cured. Secretary Rusk is highly pleased with the showing. Next Tuesday is St. Valentine's day. St. Valentine was an Italian priest who suffered martydom at Rome in 270, or at Terni in 306, historians differing as to dates. History, having little to tell concerning the man, makes amends by dwelling at length on the ceremonies observed on this day. They trace the origin of these to the Roman Luper- calia, celebrated in February, at which one practice was to put the names of women in a box to be drawn by the men, each being bound to serve and honor the woman whose name he had drawn.

Don't fail to see my goods before you buy, -HENRY WINKIE, JOHN GROVE WILL FURNISH RICH Len Howard of Livermore has just received a letter from a former townsman, Mr. Briggs, who removed to California some years ago, saying that cold and snow has driven the lions in off the mountains, and one has been prowling uncomfortably close to his house for several days. Humboldt is now to have what it has been striving for a long time—a $20,000 school house. A special election was held and the issuance of bonds was voted. The issuance of $14,000 bonds, the money on hand, and the proceeds from the sale of the old school house and the stone that will be quarried, will warrant the board in starting out on the plans for a $20,000 building. L. M. Van Auken of Mas^fi City has sold one of his Tecumseh pigs for $100. That is the kind of stock to raise. An Inter Ocean special from Dubuque states that Gov. Boies has forwarded to President-elect Cleveland a letter declining the secretaryship of agriculture. It Is now learned that the offer was made to the governor over a week ago, and that he consulted a few of the party leaders in his' own state before declining it. He declined because his acceptance would impair democratic prospects in Ipwft next fall, when a legislature will be chosen, which will elect a successor to Senator Wilson. The issues ma^e by the democrats w m be the ayb&||j^gn Qf loca.| option, for town, is dangerously ill. They sent in for the doctor Sunday night, but the storm was raging so bad the doctor could not get out and had to wait until today noon before ho could go. Mrs. Thos. Gray is on the sick list at present, but at the time of writing is some better. We are in receipt of a letter from T. A. Clark of West Bend, in which he says that they are all well. This will be cheering news to his many friends here, as it has been reported that Mrs. Clark has boon suffering from an attack of diphtheria since their little boy died. There was quite a little excitement in our town last Wednesday about 2 o'clock, when the alarm was given that the Alliance store was on fire. It seems that the chimney that was burning out became hot and the siding that came in contact with it began to smoke. It was some little time before the fire could be located, but when found u, few pails of water stopped what might have made quite a blaze had it got under headwiiy. The dime sociable given by the Ladies Aid society at the residence of Mrs. Frank Heal last Wednesday night was the event of the season, When the Wesley ladies take anything in hand it is sure to be a brilliant success. J. R. Laird and Wm. Hall of Algona came over with the hearse to tend the funeral of Mr. Gray last Tuesday. The snow storm was so severe that they were unable to get back home the next day. Our county superintendent, B. P. Reed, stopped at the Sherman house one night last week. Ben. was skylarking around the county and the storm drove him in. He has not been around yet to visit our schools but it makes no difference. Wo have the best schools in the county and the best school government, and Ben. knows it. And now the latest is that Ed. Gurren has sold his farm and is going to move to Wesley nnd be a candidate for the postofflco. Wesley is not going to take a back seat for the want of timber for a postofflce war. Let the good work go on. Jo. Havefferly lost one of his horses last Thursday evening. He had his team tied in front of McCutchen's store when one of them dropped over dead from no apparent cause. Mrs. A, J. Wright has rented her farm and intends moving to town, where she can have better school advantages for her children. She has. purchased F. K. Waite's house and lots in Park addition, $450 being the price paid. Dave Price was up last week from Buffalo Center. He says everything is booming in that new burg. He further stated that the Center had better sidewalks than Wesley. We are afraid Dave has been training in bad company since he has moved down there and has got into the habit of handling the truth carelessly. However, we will give him the benefit of the doubt. T. C. Walton is expecting his son Will home from Chicago in a few days. He lias been at work for Butts & Ward while there, E. F. Bacon went to Des Moines Saturday, whore he expects to visit his family for a few days. G. A. Frink's wife received word that her father was dangerously ill. She took the train Saturday morning for Hampton, where her fofks reside. Nate Studer has been on the sick list for some time. Dr. Hill was called out to see him and loft him feeling considerably better. Tuesday Feb. 2 was ground hog day. Obed Robinson came up town in the morning and some of the boys told him it was ground hog day and that he had better go home, which he did, and has not been seen up town since. Great fear has come over the boys now. They think that he has been out and seen his shadow and that we will have six weeks more of winter. Guy M. Butts informs us that he intends putting up a building in the spring on block 12, 30x50, 24 foot posts, brick veneer, which he intends to occupy with the Wesley Exchange bank. There are quite a number of our citizens contemplating building as soon as the weather will permit. The third quarterly meeting of Wesley charge will take place here next Sunday. Rev. Fouse of Britt will officiate for Elder Black. Let everybody endeavor to come out and give tiim, a full house. We were informed that Mr. A, Kingsbury has purchased a lot of Wm. Colby and intends building a house on it at once. Markets: ley, .8895 '
