THE OTPJEB Vm MOIKJESJ ALGrONA, IOWA, WJEBOTSI>A¥, APRIL 19, 1898, DOT Will Mnve Straightened Streets-Hotel Property Changes '. Jlands— the Weekly Resume. WESLEY, April 18.— Farmers arc about tione seeding and are plowing for corn, Barney Matron returned from Chicago Tuesday, where ho haa been marketing hie fat cattle. He says ho struck a good market. j, 8. Gallagher, Z. S. Barrett, S. X< Way* and C. T. Robinson were all doing business in Algona Monday. Our city dray line has come out in fine shape lately with brand new wagons. When, Mr, Has well started the line here three years ago it wns said by some that he could not make a living at the business, but has had more than he 6ould do at times, and has added another team and wagon to the line. Burton is a good, accommodating fellow, and that Is where the secret of his success comes in. . Wm. M. Hattery of Marshalltowin is hero this weok looking up some business matters pertaining to the lumbc.r yard he formerly had hero. Chas. Monson has the lumber on the ground for a new house in the north part of totni; also, Mrs. Ford is building a new house on the north side, having given up the idea of moving to Buffalo O«nler. C. B. [Jut'Chins has boon deputized by the county surveyor to come and •' straighten up the streets of Wesley north of Iho rullrond track, where there h:m been so much dispute. It is high tituo this was attended to. He ; will be hero the 28Ui and 29th of April to do the work. , • Guy M. Butts went to Algona Tues• 'day. Guy says he is going to commence ' his new bank building as soon us the weather will permit. A little girl of J. S. Gallagher's has been quite sick lately, but by the skillful treatment of Dr. McConnack she is improving nicely. . Mrs. G. F. Barslou is visiting friends in Britt this weok. The Sherman house has ngairi changed hands. Mrs. Bolsingor and her sister, Miss Wesegover of Elkport, Iowa, have bought out Mi 1 . Walton and have taken charge of the house. The price paid for the property was $2,800. We are informed that the present owners have had considerable experience in the hotel business, and that the good name of the Sherman house will be retained as one of the best houses in the county. The outgoing landlord, Mr. Walton, is undecided yet as to what ho will engage in for the future. He still owns some property here. He informs us that he nnd his .•wife will visit for a month or so in Wisconsin with friends. Ho has a couple of chances to purchase hotel property, but is not in a hurry to engage in anything of the kind for the present. The public and especially the people of Wesley will miss Mr. Walton, as he has been a very genial landlord, and by his frank, straightforward way of doing business has made many lasting friends Hero that will regret to see him move away. While we welcome those that have 1 invested their money in the hotel and wish them the best of success, we also wish Mr. and Mrs. Walton the same in whatever they may engage. • Owing to so much poor hay being shipped from different points along the line of the Milwaukee railroad the company compel all shippers of hay to prepay the freight before they will' receive it, which makes it a little inconvenient for a good many who are shipping their own hay. Mrs. It. B. Hopkins received word that her mother, who resides at Cylinder, was dangerously sick. Mrs. Hopkins is there with her mother this week. There will ba services at the M. E, church Sunday morning at 11 a. m. Sunday school at 10 a. m. The papering and painting are all clone. Mr. Viale of Britt did the work and it is a very neat job. Thos.

Most all of the property holders have signed it. Markets: Wheet, 5Qc; oats, 2Q@22c; barley, 25c; corn, 30c; flax, 90c; hay, loose, $2.75, baled, $3.50@4. part of the time. All are pleased to have Mrs. and Miss Mclntyre residents among us again. A Slippery ", <Jooh." The darkey that was working for W. F. Carter skipped out Sunday night. Mr. Carter discharged him Saturday, having no further use for him. The darkies slept at the fair ground, and sometime Sunday night this particular one arose, stole |20 from " Link" Singleton, and started down the road. He owed E. G- Bowyer a few dollars, and Mr. Bowyer overtook him Monday and compelled him to disgorge. The Rending; Room. To the Editor: The regular Meeting of the W. C. T.

RENEWAL OF CHARTER OF GOUNTY BANK, KOSSUTH At a regular meeting of the stockholders called for the purpose of considering a continuance of the corporation known as " Kossuth County Bank" and a renewal of the charter Issued thereto,-held at Algona, Iowa, on the llth day of April, 1803, at the office of said bank, the following resolutions were passed unanimously; Whereas, The charter of the Kossuth County Bank will terminate on the 1st day of May, 1893. in accordance with its articles of incorporation; therefore be it, Resolved, That the said corporation be, and the same Is hereby renewed and to bo continued for a period of twenty years from the 1st d»y of May, 1803, to the 1st day of May, 1913. The said corporation to be known under the style and name of the " Kossuth County State Bank." Also Resolved, That the management of the same will remain with jhe. present officers of the Vyzant, 11114-2:441 VYZANT is a bay horse, full 16 hands high, front and hind ankles white. He is a horse of grand size, rare finish, elegant carriage, and weighs 1200 pounds in racfng condition. His present record is no limit of his speed, as In this instance he really trotted alone. His sire, Bezant Z :2l'/i, is a grandson of Harrold, sire of Maud S. 2:08&. Vysant's grand dam, dam of Bezant, is Bi cara (dam of Pancoast2:21?i, sire of Patron 2 :14!it etc., by Harrold, sire of Maud S. 3:08%. Vysant's first dam Viola Duck by Guide 1107, sire of Franklin B., to polo 2:22'^, Jig 2:25, etc.), and sire of dams of Brown Cedar (3) 2:24^, Favonia (2) 2:30>4, Bitty Dock (2) 2:33"i,Azant(2) 2:33, (3) 2:20, Vyzant (4) 2:44Ji. Second dam Roan Duck by son of Bashaw; third dam Old Dock 2:35 by Kentucky Hunter 50; fourth dam by Ground Hog, We ask a careful scrutiny of Vyzant's blood lines. The finest-pointed cambric needle cannot find a place which does not tell of speed. He comes of a line that has speed in it, and one that has transmitted extreme speed. After a season with two weeks' handling he faced the starter for the first time, winning every heat and a record of 2:44S£, making a host of friends among disinterested horsemen ou account of his splendid gait and the cool, workmanlike manner in which he did up his heats. Vyzant will make the season as follows: Humboldt, on Monday and Tuesday j Bode, on Wednesday and Thursday, and Algona on Friday and Saturday of eacli week. Terms of service: The season, $25. Season closes July 1. Money due at time of first service. Mares failing to conceive in 1803 can be returned in 1894 if stallion is alive and In my possession.
