Capt. Dodge was up town for the first time last week since he was taken sick. Both he and Mrs. Dodge are able to be about again. A mortgage sale of the Leatherman . busses and teams was stopped Monday by an injunction. Geo. E. Ciarke acts for Leatherman. Lon. Whitehill has bought Gust. A. Hanson's cigar stock and will run the! store hereafter. Mr. Hansen has turned to Mason City. The Estherville Democrat says tha Chas. Brunson and Mart Ferris have been up planning on building a ha, barn and running a press at Esther villa. Rev. Bowen goes to Estherville Sun day to preach and there will be no ser vice at the Episcopal church here. He goes to Estherville once a month a present. The Estherville Republican endorses the idea 'of a county oratorical meeting and says: " We are quite certain - the proposition would meet with favor in Emmet county," Union services this week in the Baptist church. Wednesday evening Rev, Dor ward will speak on " Sympathy for Souls." Let us rally round the banner of King Emanuel. A bi-chloride of gold club has been organized at Portland, Ore. Our old Estherville friend, Frank Davey, is president, and Dr. Taylor, late of Bancroft, is'secretary. -Cash subscriptions for'the Russsian relief fund will be received at THE UP' PER DES MoiNES office and forwarded to the committee. The names and credits will be published in full. The county board are not going to ""rescind their order closing the ' court room, and we are glad of it. If Algona cannot secure an opera house she should go without entertainment. A New Year's marriage was celebrated at the Reimer home north of the Milwaukee track. Chas Kargleder and 'Miss Anna Reimer received the congratulations of their friends. The Congregational church unanimously re-elected • Rev. Davidson for another year, Monday, and chose A. W. Moffatt and Dr. McCoy deacons, and Mrs. Mary Patterson clerk. There are reports of a house in the west part of town which should receive official investigation, Rumors of vice and debauchery are so common concerning it that the authorities should act. The school board held a meeting Monday evening and chose J. W. Robinson to fill the vacancy caused by B. F, Reed's resignation. Mr, Robinson is one of the best men who has been on the board. The ladies of the M, E. church will give a chicken-pie supper on Thursday of this week at the home of Mrs. Dr. Morse. Supper from 5 o'clock sharp until all are served. Every one is given a cordial invitation. The Estherville Republican says of a county oratorical contest: " A good idea, We have a few natural born orators up this way who are just dying to }et off steam." If Emmetsburg is going to h r old one let the planning begin. For a few years past the board proceedings have appeared in our columns in advance of any other paper in the county, Our report is condensed in some particulars but gives all that is done by the board and the schedule of claims 1& full. County Attorney Joslyn was called to Wesley today. A young man who was hired to haul Rome hay has been arrested on the charge of. stealing the hay. It grows out of a disputed claim td the hay with which the boy had nothing to do. Geo. Urch, one of the hew comers from Illinois this spring, has built two barns oh the Hathaway farm he bought and is now ready to farm. His brother comes this week to open oh his farm adjoining. They are the right kind of men for this country. The News figures up LuVerne's railway shipments for 1891 at 1,055 car loads. Of these hay makes 692 cars; grain, 262 cars; stock, 98 cars, and three of miscellanious. This is a fine showing for a live town. How many in Kossuth can do better? This is is leap year again. If some of the eligible bachelors of the city don't make a move before long, THE UPPER DES MOINES will bo compelled to name them and recite • their available qualities in the hope that the young ladies will do something. All who are interested in educational matters .will read Prof. Dixson's report of the state teachers' meeting at Des VIoines with pleasure. He gives in concise form the gist of the proceed- ngs, and gives prominence to the im- jortant question of how to connect the ligh school and college work. Prof. Dixson has furnished us these reports or several years and they form a valuable record. Bro. Platt says that among the New Year swear-offs " Bro. Hayes will re- iolve deep down in his ' insides' that if he succeeds, in saving his 'innards' rom the bears this time, he will never more be guilty of a like exposure of his vital parts," and that " Bro. Hin,hon will record a solemn vow that he will never again assume the management of a demo-farmo-prohi campaign." We hope both predictions are correct. And now our Corwith neighbors have ound a veterinary who is able to dis- over mad dog bite in the stock over here which has been eating corn smut, 'he Crescent says: "J. T. Clark of Sumboldt, a veterinarian, was here to xamine the stock of Wm. Oxley, that re sick and have died from this peculiar disease thaj; has lately attacked them. He made a post mortem examination and finds unquestioned symptons of rabies, and gives it as his opinion that the cause of death was rabies." The " hoss doctor" is a great institution. The Babtists expect the evangelist, Rev. C; W. Palmer, in the pulpit next Sunday, to begin a special revival meeting. This brother comes highly recommended as an able preacher and a good singer. He is endorsed by all denominations as a successful soul-winner. He is noted for his biblical discourses, and for his ability as a bib'le reader. .We hope he may secure the co-operation of the Christian people of the city. The meetings are free to all who are inclined to work for the salvation of souls. Although THE UPPER DES MOINES has done no canvassing for subscribers and offered no premiums it has added the names of more of the substantial citizens of the county this fall than ever before to its list. Yesterday, within a couple of hours, Paul Dorweiler, August Zahlten, H. Hoxie and Mr. Thornton came in to give us their names. These are fair examples of the class of subscribers we are gaining. The paper is conducted as a business institution on business principles, and we discover that the policy commends itself to business men. A disturbance occurred outside the hall where the Scandinavian dance was held last Friday, and rumors of a stabbing were afloat next morning when young man from Wesley named Brennan was arrested. He was brought aefore Squire Taylor and yesterday morning was dismissed for lack of prosecution. The story first told was hat Hort Nebergall was stabbed, but he scratches proved to be not very serious. The trouble was not caused jy any mismanagement at the dance, )ut by the attendance of parties who were not invited, The Scandinavians buggy, accompanied by an adopted boy, just as the horse was crossing the track the south-bound Burlington passenger struck the horse, throwing him and the buggy more than fifty feet. The horse was killed and the man and boy were badly bruised and mangled. The boy will hardly recover and the condition of the man is reported as anything but encouraging." We have heard no report as to Mr. Bonstetter's condition, PEBSONAL MOVEMENTS, down yesterday but all will hope that neither he nbr the boy were dangerously hurt. Mr. Bonstetter's neighbors, Philip and Paul Dorweiler, were in town yesterday. They say he is badly hurt and the boy's skull is broken. Both are improving, however, and Mr. Bonstetter will fully recover. The Emmetsburg Reporter is after our veterinaries again. It takes the Britt Tribune's joke about the cattle trouble in Corwith seriously, and then renews the discussion of the Emmetsburg trouble and says: "Here they prescribed salts for it, and never hinted at the disease being of the brain, but called it impaction of the omasum. An editor in Algona is being sued for calling ' a regular graduate' a ' quack, hence wo will not use the term. But in view of the fact that this disease is one that, so far as is known, absolutely kills every animal that it takes hold of, and as it has been at work In three counties in Iowa and one in Kansas, that we know of, it would seem seem that Gov. Boies would put some veterinary to work on it who is both competent and disposed to make a thorough examination of the disease, as the present state veterinary appears to be only inclined to make a farce of his office." We do not object to a lot of cheap " hoss doctors" trying to get a little fame out of exciting the people. But our brother editors should keep calm.' The state veterinaries have as much interest in knowing what diseases affect the cattle as anyone has, and because they attribute this trouble to such simple causes as bad water and corn smut, is no reason for believing that they are ignorant or careless. It is no evidence that a doctor is a quack because he tells his patient he has a pimple when the latter is sure he has a cancer. A SUDDEN SUMMONS, desire the presence of their countrymen only, and always have an orderly and social time. The hog is the brainiest of the brute creation. It has a small eye but it las the inventive mind behind it. Rod. Tain has some of the brainiest hogs we lave heard of. He lately turned some nearly dried up milk cows among them o dry up completely and fatten. What was his surprise to discover as the weeks went by that the cows were get- ing poor but that the hogs were improving prodigiously. Whatever his urprise it was increased when he dia- jovered further that the hogs instead if letting the cows dry up had pat- ierned after their masters and adopted , regular milking system, which was ery gratifying to them and very dis- xmraging for the beef cattle. Mr. ain now keeps his cows and hogs separated. A bad accident happened to M. Bon- tetter at West Ben,4 Christmas morn- ng. The Eminetaburg Remporat says ' while driving to church in a covered Mrs. Maggie BushnoJl, Daughter of Mrs. Mclntyre, Dies Suddenly at Hampton. A telegram this morning announced the sudden death of Mrs. Maggie Bushnell at Hampton. She was the second daughter of Mrs. Jane Mclntyre, grew up in Algona, and numbered among her friends all the young people of the town who have long lived here. She met Mr. Bushnell when he was in the old Algona college. She leaves several children, the last a baby of a few days age. Mrs. Mclntyre is frantic with grief and may be unable to go to Hampton for the funeral. The news was broken to her by D. H. Hutchins, and friends are with .her. In their bereavement all the mourners will have the sympathy of those who knew and admired the many fine qualities of the deceased. XiOtts Creek Heard Prom. A writer from Lotts Creek, signing himself "Occasional," says: Will you please tell us what has become of Lotts Creek? You used to tell about Fenton postofflce when it was located nearly a mile and a half in Lotts Creek, and of Frank Pompe of Fenton when he is nearly as far in Lotts Creek. But that is so near the line perhaps you are not to blame. But E. Geilenfeldt was located in Fenton when he lived 2J miles south of the line; and now I see that E. Schrab has sold his farm in Fenton, when his farm was two miles south. If sgmeone does not enter a protest, the next thing we know you will locate P. J. Walker, J. P., in Fenton, and then if P. J., J. P., does not come after you with tears in his fists and his eyes doubled up, someone in Fenton will dig up the tomahawk and start on the war path. RESIDENCE POE SALE. The VT. W.

Judge Bishop of Sycamore, 111., was in town last week looking after his land here. He also took depositions in a land case in which a Mr. Stone of Sycamore is interested. We understand he was very successful in securing evidence. Ed. Young's father and mother, who went to Ashland, Wis., to stay with him, are back. Mr, Young says the water and change did not agree with Mrs. Young's health. Ashland is very quiet and the boom is off. Ed. is in good health and busy. It is altogether likely that Kossuth will soon lose ex-Sheriff Stephens. He was in Sioux City last week and will decide this week whether to accept a place offered there or not. The particulars of what his new offer is are not public, but he will undoubtedly soon go to Sioux City. His family will not go before spring. The California party got started on Monday.

OFFICIAL SALARIES. The salaries of the county officers for FEOM TEH COUNTY TOWNS,'' WESLEY. WESLEY, Jan. 4.—John Grove of Algona was in our town Monday on business. Farmers are busy nowadays hauling their hay to town. . H. C. Hollenbeck went to Algona on Monday. "Hank" is now one of the county dads. Last Friday afternoon W. A. Gillespie hitched up a horse belonging to his brother-in-law, Mr. Hayward, and started to town after some coal. He got nearly to town when the horse stumbled and broke one of his legs. They sent for Dr. Bayers, but ho ; not being at home they sent to Vinton for a veterinary, who arrived Sunday morning and set the limb. This is quite a bad accident, as the horse is a fine- blooded animal and will be quite a loss to Mr. Hayward if he.should lose him. J. P. Colby of Curlew is hero visiting his brother, W. M., this week. It is reported that some of our Wesley boys were down to Algona the other night and got into trouble with some of the Algona boys, and badly used up one of the latter. Well, it seems that our Wesley lads have a better record for fighting away from home than they have here. We have been living in Wesley lo, these fourteen years, and have heard our boys talk fight, but never saw blood drawn but once, and that was an accident.' R. P. Chapin and C. S. Potter have bought out James Reed of Irvington and intend to go into the hay business quite extensively at that station another year. The Wesley Savings bank has reorganized and increased their stock from $10,000 to $16,000. E. F. Bacon has been elected president and has taken charge of the same. Hugh McCutchen has a very valuable norse which we have been informed is a close relative of Nancy Hanks, and which he is selling in shares at $1,000 each. We don't know how many shares he has sold, but we have noticed that many people go into his barn to look at the animals, and by the way they spit when they come out one would be led to think they were very favorably im- stalks and fence posts and crawling up on the blind side, managed to capture' three of the quadrupeds. There was six cars of stock left here on Monday evening for Chicago. Two of H. S. Benedict's, two of V. A. Hunt's, and two of Geo. Miller's. All went with them to market. Who captured that wolf, boys? John Staffacher, who is clerking in Henry Klindt's store, left last week for Monroe, Wis., for a few days visit among his relatives and friends. •Geo. Worling, one of our enterprising farmers is putting in a steam feed, grinding, and shelling outfit on his farm. _ This will be a good thing for his neighbor farmers. It gives them a chance to get their feed ground also. The engine boiler and fixtures will cost him about $300 complete. Married. Miss Mary Gould to Mr* Lewis Mnt'hnws, at the bride's home In LuVerne, Rev. Eighmy officiating. The best wiihes of all go with them. Several of our town's people went to Renwick Sunday to attend the dedica- .tion of the new church there. The entertainment of New Year's eve at C. H. Lichty's was a grand affair. There was a large attendence and all enjoyed a happy evening. 1. P. Harrison is about to trade his farm of 160 acres to J. H. Miller for hia residence nenr the school house. BurtiH and Robertson shipped a carload of hogs on Saturday night. 1 C. H. Liclity's br< Iher is here visiting for the holidays, with Charles and family. B. F.

This was rather unexpected by the board, as Mr. Slagle always seemed to be well satisfied with the school; yet we must say that we would have thought better of Mr. Slagle had he told the board when he closed his fall term that he wanted to resign, and also if he did not intend to teach the school again he should have said so, and not secured the contract for the school year. He writes the board from Cedar Rapids, Neb., that he has got a school out there that pays him almost double what he was getting here. If such is the fact we hope Mr. S. will i-tick by them and not jump his contract, as he did here, without first notifying the board. Our board of directors will close a contract this week with another man as principal to finish out the balance of our school. Our patrons can rest assured that our school will begin next Monday with a full set of teachers and everything will move along smoothly. Elmer Slagle of Algona was in our town today on business. E.
