WESLEY, Feb. lo.—There is strong- talk of a farmers' creamery to be organized here in the near future. Parties from Algona and Buct hare been canvassing this part of the county soliciting tho patronage of .the farmers, and also trying to sell stock. There will be a meeting here next Saturday of all those interested in tho business, to See what can bo done. C. E. Oleson intends putting in a separator the coming season at this place, and also one north of town, in Buffalo. We notice that Z. E. Barrett has quite a number of hoises on hand, which he intends to trade or sell. He has le:ised J. S. Gallagher's burn, nnd will operate a livery and sale stable the comiuj; spring and summer. W. M. Colby is numbered with those on the sicl; list this week, but there is nothing serious. Thos. Biebsamen, who was reported sick last week, recovered so far that he thought he would be able to go to his brother's, in Buffalo township. Since his arrival there he has suffered a relapse and is now in a very critical condition. Dr. Morse of Algona was called to see him Saturday. What's the matter with our Wesley band? We saw two or three of them going somewhere with their instruments one evening last week, but we did not hear them render any music. Come, boys; don't let the enterprise die out, but got out and let the people hear once in two months, at least. St. Valentine's day has come and gone again, but not without the usual excitement that it generally brings. Of course we remembered our friends, and they in turn remembered us; and yet we find it more blessed to give than receive on such occasions. Mrs. H. C. Hollenbeck has been quite ill during the past week, but is reported better now. Wesley is to have another barber shop. Mv. Robt. Turner will open up a shop in Mr. White's new building as soon as the room can be made ready. Obed Robinson has been appointed to collect tho delinquent taxes of Prairie, Wesley, and Buffalo townships. He will make a good collector. Markets: Wheat, G9c; oats, 21c; bar•ley, 25@30c; corn, 22@25c; flax, 75c; timothy seed, 8oc; hay, ?3.50@4 loose; $4.50@5.25 baled; hogs, $4.25. The business of our postofflce at this place has increased so rapidly of late that our '»Nasby 1 '- has been compelled to hire an assistant. This is leap year, but we have not heard of any proposals made by any of our Wesley girls who are climbing beyond one score and five years, while our town is running over with once- young men, but now on the old bachelor list, who sigh as they pass by for someone to caress. There is Fred Cory, with that irrepressible smile of his, has turned himself loose ever since the first of January, waiting for someone to propose to him; he will hitch up his team, put an old sewing machine in his wagon and start for Ellington, Hancock county, but will come back with the same old machine and a woebegone look on his face, and it is plain to be seen that he has not received any proposals today. And hero comes Carl Oleson; he, too, has been looking and waiting for someone to propose to him for lo, these many years, and we wonder why our young ladies let such a rare chance goby. There are Geo. Flack and his brother Jim, who have been waiting till they are turning gray, but are yet open for proposals. While Freeman Ash, whoso strong arm supported by the law of the great state of Iowa stand's ready to extend protection to any of the fair sex that may propose to him. There's John Ford, yo editor of the Wesley Reporter, would bo a grand catch for some ono of our girls; ho, too, acts as though he was ready for proposals, which is plain to bo soon when he passes one of the fair sox on tho street; mid if one or them should chance to step into the sanctum John will bow, blush, then in behind tho job press, pick up the spongo and wipe tho perspiration from 'his thought-laden brow and politdy ask tho ladies to bo seated; this of course is all put on; John is not as bashful as ho would like to have the young ladies think ho is. Providence has already smiled on A. II. i'rcsrioll; lie called at a certain plaoo in town tho other day on business, wlion tho old , man proposed to cast lots with him to soe who should take hiu daughter out to her school; of course it foil to Pros- nell to go, and since his return it is plain to be seen that the girl proposed to him as he expected, as ho 1mb boon wearing a Cx9 smile over since. Liint but not least comes Goo. A. Frink; ho, too, would be a good catch for someone; George is not vory pretty, and is beginning to get somewhat bald, but hlw teeth are good yet, has got plenty of money, has his life insured for a couple of thousand, and sayu as soou as ho gets Carried he will add. another thousand to the policy. George also oilers other attractions which, however, according- to the accepted term of the day, are "too numerous to mention.'' 1.U VBRNE. LuVKRNE, Feb. 15,—Several of our town people went to Corwith on Friday evening to attend the meetings held there. * The boys are wondering where those valentines camo from. Some nice and some oh! ohl you guess the rest. The school has purchased an organ of J. G. Early of Foft Dodge. Joe. Winters and family of LakcGeld, Minn., are visiting with F. H. Pat ton this week. Wm. Brummond has sold his lumber yard here to a lumber company. They are taking inventory now. Mr. and Mrs. H. L. Simmons' little boy, Martie, is sick abed with a vi-ry tad ctild. The concert given by the school children last Friday night was rendered in good style and was a financial success. Something like $32 was the proceeds which go to buy an organ for the school. Paul Wagner, who has been to Chicago for the past three weeks on a visit, has returned. Melver Robertson of Blue Earth City is visiting his sister, Mrs. E. A. Lovell, who has been sick for the past month. B. F. Burtis went to Chicago on Saturday evening with two cars of stock. Born, tho 9th, to Mr. and Mrs. Gustavo Safleld, a girl. All concerned doing well as could be expected. Werner Eggerth has sold out his property where he carried on the furniture business, itock nnd all to Peter Figi, and will give immediate possession. A dance was held at Moses Hiller's northeast of town about three miles Friday night. Henry Klindt, who has been down with la grippe for the past week, is able to be on duty again. Chas. Ford has sold his residence dence property to Mr. Pendleton for $600 cash, and Mr. P. will, move to town in a couple of weeks. Born, to Mr. and Mrs. Lacy, a son, nnd there is a right nice valentine for you, Doc. There is a good dual of grain coming to town of late. Mr. and Mrs. S. C. Platt went to Des Moines on Friday to be gone till Monday. Altn_ek'i Cloted. i Imnck's is no mote; Willis' Booms baMS had their day and ceased to be! No more will the magnificent hall and wlons of the dingy edifice in King street, St. James', celebrated tinder both these titles, re-echo the sounds of revelry and mirth. Henceforth the animation within its walls will be confined mainly to sales by suction. In its day Almack's was the center of fashion, entry to which was guarded by a committee of ladies as closely as ever Cerberus guarded a region not so inviting, and who were less easily satisfied than even the fabled sentinel. Even the Dnke of Wellington—who, according to Lord William Lenox, earned for himself in his day the title of "The Bean of the Peninsula." just as in later times a gallant admiral earned for himself the distinction of "The Swell of the Ocean"—was denied admission one night because he had donned black trousers instead of the knee breeches and silk stockings which the committee had voted indispensable 'for gentlemen. Every book dealing with fashionable life at the end of the last century and the beginning of this abounds in references to Almack's. According to legend Mr. Almack was in reality a Scotchman, who came to London in the proverbial condition. His real name was M'All, but as' at that time his countrymen were not so esteemed south of the Tweed as they are now, he thought to diminish hostility to his nationality by reversing his patronymic. Almack's ultimately became Willis 1 Rooms, and was for long the headquarters of social festivals, dances and charity dinners. These festal times are over, and instead of the toastmaster's "Fill your glasses, gentlemen; bumpers, if you please," the refrain of its presiding genius will be "Go, going, gone!" And thus disappears another link which joined the end of the century with what the late Lord Lamington called the "Days of the Dandies."—London Telegraph. An Important Translation.

Ebers shrank from translating the whole, on the ground that medical knowledge was requisite for the task. He expressed this opinion when he and Ludwig Stern edited the manuscript in 1875. A complete translation has now been made by a Berlin medical man, Dr. Heinrich Joachim, who learned Egyptian for the purpose, and has been working at the translation for several years. Thanks to his labors, the oldest medical work in the world is now accessible to all who can read German. Joachim thinks that it was written at latest 1550 years B. C., but that parts of it are of still older date. It consists mainly of rocipes, interspersed here and there with proverbs. In some passages ndvice as to the examination of patients is given; in others the prognosis indicated by certain symptoms is stated. The treatise shows that palpation of the abdomen was practiced by the old Egyptian physicians.—Berlin Cor. London Lancet. Cork PoroHt.8. Cork growing in Spain and Portugal is an extremely precarious business, and it demands considerable capital. Only the other day a man in this city was seeking a partner with $100,000 to put into a cork forest in Spain, with a lease of 150 years. The bark is cut only once in ten years, but as the forests are very large the grower manages to obtain an annual crop. This year's crop is just beginning to come into the American market, the trees having been barked in July and August. Crude cork comes over in great bales weighing from 175 to 225 pounds The heat to which it is subjected in order to flatten out its curves also drives out most of the insects, such as one would naturally expect to find in bark. As cork is too light to form a cargo of itself, the cork carrying vessels also bring oil, olives, wine and heavy merchandise of various sorts.—New York Bun, 4S^Kim«€IL^I JEST IF YOU SHOULD TRAVEL OER THE WORLD I AS FAR AS YOU COULD CO, 'A BETTER SOAP TfjANl SANTA CLAUS [ YOUD NEVER qET TO KKlOV/ &CO.
