The Oclebolt Chronicle reported recently the selling of a wagon-load of clover seed for the sum of $610.50, stating that it was probably the most valuable load of farm produce ever taken to market. Mr. Geo. W. Franklin of Atlantic has since come to the front with a bigger claim. Under date of March 14, he writes the editor of the Chronicle thus: "I will state that in 1888 I hauled to market on one wagon 2,285 pounds of wool, the product of 198 head of sheep, which sold at 27 cents per pound, and brought a little more than the loud of clover seed, or $610.87. If wool htis obtained some decorations about the optics, it still stands at the bond of the list for a valuable wagon- load." Clarion had a heavy loss by fire last Thursday. Six buildings were burned and the total damage is put at $10,000. John P. Meyer has sold his farm in Shiloh township, Grundy county, at $50 per acre, and Arend Meyer of the sumo township sold 200 acres at $54. Iowa had another lynching last week at Filem, a mining town in Monroe county. William Ftmier, 'a minor, whose wife left him a fuw days ago on account of drunkenness, wont to where she was staying and killed her and hoi- sister, Mrs. Smith, who ran to Mrs. Fimier's assistance. Prazior ran a knife through his wife and she died immediately. Mrs. Smith ran into the room, where she heard screaming, and was instantly stabbed in the breast, dying in a few minutes. The brute then made an attack on his child, mutilating it. As soon as the tragedy was known public indignation was aroused, and Prazier was lynched by an angry mob. _____ A full section of land in Carroll county sold last week at $44.50 an acre. FARM LOANS.

Twining of Port Dodge received official notice yesterday from Senator Kimball Houston that she is one of the few heirs to the estate of the late General Sam Houston of Texas, valued at $1,000,000. Mrs. Twining's father was a first cousin of Samuel Houston. His estate has been involved in litigation ever since his death, and has just emerged from the court. Mrs. Tvvining's share will amount to about $100,000. _ It is said that two lawyers, Hon. John Y. Stone of Mills county, and Hon. Ben. McCoy of Mahaska, own the two largest apple orchards in Iowa.

" Buffalo Bill" Cody has offered to hire the winner of the race to complete the season with his Wild West show, guaranteeing to pay $500 per week. An Illinois paper comes to the defense of our Iowa artists and says: It is well known that Iowa artists are out of sight, that is they are away up in art. We knew of a Keokuk man who painted a bottle of beer so natural looking that the cork flew out. This man's sister painted a dog so true to life that he died of hydrophobia, and a hen that laid eggs. Fact I Lafe Young has a $5,000 libel suit on his hands. ______ Thursday, Sept. 21, has been fixed upon as Iowa day at the world's fair, A programme of special interest will be arranged for Hawkeye visitors. Someone, speaking with authority, says the Iowa militia will not visit the world's fair this year at state expense. He says: " The Iowa troops intended to be in Chicago in July. 'Iowa day' is set for Sept. 21, and if they do go they may seize on that as an opportunity. The strong probability is that the regular summer camps will be held in the state, and the fair must do without Iowa's citizen soldiery." Speaking of the possibility that cholera may enter our country this year the Monthly Bulletin of the Iowa state board of health says: " We hope Iowa will have every local board of health fully organized and wide awake —with health officers capable of recognizing promptly all contagious diseas- We can show you the largest and finest line of Stoves and Ranges in the county. We have great bargains in FENQE WIRE and Hardware, Don't fail to see my goods before you buy. relaxes and before the frost is out of the ground manure and garbage should be cleared up and destroyed or put where it can be plowed under and used as fertilizers." _________ Wm.

The Moore Sewer Pipe company of Wellsvillo, Ohio, are to remove their plant there at once, on account of the superior quality of clay which is so abundant in the county. The company will employ 200 men. The citizens subscribed a cash bonus of $10,000. _________________ NOTES FBOM WESLEY. • A Now llntilt to be Opened with Substantial Stockholders — A Hush of Immigration. WESLEY, March 27.—Saturday was a busy day for our merchants. Samuel and Win. McBrido of 'Thornton arrived Saturday with thoir household goods and farm implements. They are going to open up a farm in Buffalo township six miles north of Wesley. The boys are wide awake and industrious and are sure to make a sue- • cess at farming. The immigrants that have arrived here this spring mostly are from Grundy and Butler counties, a few from Illinois, and are of the German descent. A few have settled south of of Wesley, but the majority of them bought land in Buffalo and Gorman townships. They are an energetic class of citizens and most of them are members of the Reform church. We reported last week that Geo. B. Hall had bought out Dr. McCormack and that the doctor was going to locate at Buffalo Center. For some reason one or the other backed out, hence the doctor will remain hero for the present. Don't forget to come out next Sunday morning to the Eustor services at the M. E. church. Services will commence at 11 a. in. Concert exercises by the Sunday school in the evening at 7:80. A good programme will be rendered and everybody is invited to attend. ^ H. C. Hollenback is at Dos Moines this week. Miss Anna Longbottom closed her winter term of school last Friday. She has been teaching the Lloyd school in Hancock county. Miss Longbottom is one of Kossuth county's successful teachers and we are informed she has given good satisfaction over in the other counties where she has been teaching. C. E. Oleson was doing business in Algona Monday. Prof. Barslou moved into the rooms over the alliance store Tuesday. It is rumored that Wesley is to have a new drug store. Our schools will close Friday. Our teachers will take a week's vacation before they will commence the spring and summer term. Miss Lionie Hopkins closed up her winter term of school last week. She was teaching the Zumsteg school in Buffalo township. O. H. Young of Algona was doing business in our town Monday. Sunday school at the M. E. church will commence next Sunday at 10 a. m. sharp, preaching at 11 a. m. For awhilo past services have been a half hour later. Wesley is to have another bank to bo known as the Security Bank of Wesley with a paid up capital of $25,000. Mr. G. B. Hall showed us the articles of incorporation, which will be published in due time. From him we learned the particulars. The special partners are Rodney Hill and Geo. B. Hall. Mr. Hill is the resident manager of the Citizens bank at Britt, and Mr. Hall will be the resident manager and cashier hero. Among the names of those who have taken considerable stock in this new enterprise is that of Josiah Little, a banker of Amboy, 111., Me- Connell Bros., bankers of Richman, 111,, Thompson Bros., bankers of Forest City, C. P. Hill of Minneapolis, claim adjuster for the Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad, and Messrs. Duylor & Cole .of Britt besides a good number of the best business men of Wesley, Mr. Hall is one of Wesley's old time citizens and is an honest, upright man. His many friends here will be pleased to hear of him as one of the special partners. Mr. Hill of Britt is a brother of tho doctor here and is a first class business man, and judging from the financial standing of the stockholders the business will be run on money instead of wind. Let evorybpdy come out next Friday evening to the school entertainment and see what work our teachers have been doing. Dame rumor has it that there will be a wedding take place not many miles from Wesley in the near future.
