ALL DONE IN BIG KOSSUTH Wesley Lads Indnlgre in a Frolic, fo: Which They Pay the Fiddler- Whiskey In It. Other Newsy Notes from Our Prosperou and Active Eastern Neighbor— LuVerne Locals. WESLEY, Feb. 23.—Dr. Barr of Al grona was In our town Monday on professional business. Geo. Schnider started for Bruster, JJoble county, Minn., Monday, where he Intends to make his future borne. A movement is now on foot to try to incorporate our town. This will be the third time Wesley has tried to incorporate and we are of the opinion it will carry this time,'and we think it is to every man's interest to vote for it and let us try to keep pace with other towns ? around us. If incorporation is of benefit to Bancroft, Livermore, and Corwith, why wouldn't it be of some benefit to Wesley. The proposed territory that will be embraced in the incorporation will only take in the original plat with Call and Park addition, also P. Hume's farm on the south, and we hope that all personal matters will be set aside this time and everybody take hold in. good faith, and see that the movement carries and not try to oppose it simply because such and such a one were the prime movers in trying to bring it about, and defeat it again as it was twice before. Mrs. G. W. Eddy has returned from Wisconsin, where she went to see her mother who died soon after her arrival there. W. A. Gillespie has begun to build his new blacksmith shop. Messrs. Turner & Cosgrove are doing the work. There were quite a good many farmers on our streets Saturday to talk up • the co-operative creamery question, but as near as we can find out nothing was done. There did not seem to be anyone around who had any interest in it. Ezra Ford, Arthur Ford, Ernest Marks, and Jake Hofer were arrested last Saturday for drunkenness and raising a disturbance. They were brought before 'Squire Robinson. Hofer and Marks pleaded guilty to the charge and paid their fines. The two Ford boys elected to stand trial, which was to come off today. County Attorney Joslyn and Judge Quarton arrived this morning, and after talking the matter over with the boys the latter concluded it best to plead guilty and wore fined five dollars and costs each. We hope this will be a lesson to them, and that it will not need to be repeated. There is one thing cei'tain, our people have come to the conclusion that there will be less of those drunken carousals on our streets in the future than there have been in the past. T. A. Clark's family is quite sick at . present. E. A. Flint returned on Monday from Spencer, and has taken his place as second man at Benders' elevator. Z. S. Barrett' informs us that he sold over one thousand dollars worth of lots in Park addition one day last week. This is pretty ;?ood for one day. If one of our bankers and real estate men don't let up on pulling down our butcher's fish sign and taking it home and appropriating it to his own use, he is liable to got into trouble. Markets: Wheat, 74c; oats, 21c; barley, 25@28c; flax, 78u; timothy, $1; hay, $3.75 loose, $4@4.50 baled. Hogs are soiling at §4.2o. The bills are up announcing the sale of Mr. Lund's, which takes place on March 3, at his farm north west of Wesley. We hear that C. I. Harvey of Irvington has rented this farm and will move on to it as soon as the sale is over. We notice that since our postmaster's wife has returned home our Nasby has washed his face and got on a clenn shirt. It is strange that some folks won't do anything till they have to.

Colonel William Greene Sterrett, of the Galveston-Dallas News, tells this story: "Once, a good many yeara ago," he said, "I was traveling in a stage in western Texas. It was long before the snort of the locomotive was heard on the prairies of that region, over which the buffalo yet roamed. At one of the stations a yonng Englishman and his wife got in, He was a little fellow and dressed as a typical Englishman—what we now call a dude. The • driver was a big, (.raw boned six footer. He was a noted fighter. He had never been whipped and was a regular terror. He seemed to take a dislike to the little Englishman from the start. Presently he stopped the stage, got down, came back and threw open the door. " 'Here,' he said to the Englishman, •you come out of that and get up on the seat with me. There ain't room for yon in there.' The Englishman didn't move. 'Come out, I tell you,' roared the driver. The Englishman just sat still. 'If you don't come out, I'll haul you out by the legs,' shouted the Jehu. Then the rest of us expostulated with the driver. I was too tired to fight and couldn't get at my gun, so I just expostulated along with the rest. We told the driver there was plenty of room inside; that the Englishman was not crowding us, and that if he (the driver) insulted or injured any of his passengers he would be discharged by the stage company. The driver by this time was wild. He swore he was in command of that stage and that he proposed to run it to suit himself, and if that blankety blank cuss didn't come out he'd pull him out. " 'All right,' said the Englishman, at last. 'I will come out, and when I am out I will whip you soundly.' "He got out slowly. We all felt sorry for him and sorrier for his wife. She didn't seem scared or worried, though, and all she said was: " 'Charley, don't let him scratch your face.' • "Well, when the little Englishman got out he took his coat off and handed it back into the stage. Then he started toward the driver and the driver started toward him. We heard a sound a good deal like that made by hitting a steer in the head with an ax. Down in a heap went the driver. He was up as quick as a flash. Down he went again. Actually that little English dude knocked that burly six foot driver clean off his feet a dozen times. How it was done none of us could tell. The big fellow would rush at the little 'un with his arms going like flails. Suddenly the little fellow would make a dash, his right arm would fly out, and down would go the driver. After the dozenth round that driver called out: "'Hold on, stranger—hold on! I'm whipped and throw up my hands. You kin ride anywhere on this stage you darn please, outside or inside or on the bosses. You're the boss now; but,' he added, glaring savagely at the rest of us, 'I kin lick anybody else on this stage.' "We didn't expostulate. The Englishman climbed back into the stage as quickly as h.- got off. His .wife was satisfied, for 'Charley's' face wasn't even scratched. At the next station the driver explained that if he'd only have got hold of the little fellow he'd have hugged him to death like a bear; 'but,' he exclaimed, 'every time just as I was about to lay hands on him the ground 'd fly up and hit me on the back of the head.' "Who was the little fellow? Oh, a graduate of Cambridge, and the best boxer of his time at the university."— Washington Post. M ?
