This is merely a beginning to what it will be as soon as spring opens. Wesley is bound to boom this summer. What we need most now is a harness maker, There is not a better town in the state for a good harness maker to start up in than Wesley. The only wonder is why some good live man has not seen it before this. Z. S. Barrett shipped a carload of draft horses lust Monday to Fargo, N. D. This is the first car of horses that has boon shipped from this station this year. We noticed that J. S. Gallagher was unloading a carload of farm machinery one day last week.

Cash Perry of Minnesota has been been here for the past week visiting his sister, Mrs, S. E. Grove. Rev. McBride is spending a few days at Thorton looking after some business matters there, consequently there was no preaching service here on Sunday morning and evening. Harry Sweigard of Garner was in town Monday evening taking in the dance at Kunz' hall. James Hill of Plymouth is here tho guest of Guy M. Butts. J. F.

They could'fill all lie requirements, but to get up in the norning and start the fire was too much. They resolved not to make any iroposals this year and ^hat the boys would have to d othe asking if they got my of them.

The fact that Ellsworth of Iowa Falls B so largely interested in Kossuth coun- y soil makes the legal entanglement he is in of local interest. It is the most ensational suit lately brought in icrthern Iowa, his wife suing to set .side a divorce. The facts are that in December, 1891, Eugene S. Ellsworth irocured a divorce from his wife; that he case was not tried in open court but n the private rooms of Judge Hindman; that no evidence of any kind is on file, though it is said affidavits were ubmitted to the judge that an accept- ince of service of original notice was filed in the case. A decree was granted depriving Mrs. Ellsworth of custody " the children and any interest in the arge property of the parties. Now comes Mrs. Ellsworth and files a peti- iion to set aside the decree, setting up ihat the acceptance of service was procured by fraud; that she did not know when signing it that it was such an instrument and was not told that it was; that afterwards Mr. Ellsworth treated icr with unusual kindness, advised a trip to Colorado with their daughter, and on Nov. 27 she went to Colorado and was accompanied on the trip as far as Omaha by Mr. Ellsworth, that she received a letter from him after her arrival, and during all the time no word was said about a divorce and she did not know one was sought. The divorce was granted at the December term, was ;he last case filed and was tried early in the term. The Sentinel says the jeople of Iowa Falls were greatly surprised at the suit and the silence of de- 'endant, because Mrs. E. had always borne an unblemished reputation, but nothing could be said in her behalf while she remained silent, and she was silent because she did not know what was going on. The result of this suit will be looked forward to with great in- ;erest by all who know the parties, "lol. Chas. A. Clarke of Cedar Rapids is Mrs. Ellsworth's attorney. Mr. Ellsworth has filed a denial of his wife's allegations, and introduces evidence to show that the divorce was not granted without just cause. There is also a deposition on file from the judge showing that the case was heard in the regular way, which shows that the charges of Mrs. Ellsworth's attorneys as to star chamber proceedings are utterly false. Mr. Ellsworth also files a receipt in full of all claims of every tind and nature that she claims against Irim, or his property, growing out of the divorce proceedings, and accepts the same in full settlement, payment satisfaction of all claim of alimony and of all sther claims and demands of every kind. As the property Mr. Ellsworth has given his wife is of itself a small fortune, he has surely acted liberally toward her. It appears from papers on file that Mrs. Ellsworth accepted service of the original notice in the action, and signed an agreement fixing the alimony she was to have, and that she has since expressed herself by letter as fully satisfied with the settlement. The attorneys who have her case in charge have, notwithstanding the settlement made, persuaded her to allow the case to go forward, and, if possible, have the decree ;et aside. If they succeed it will result in one of the worst scandals ever shown up in an Iowa court. The case will not be reached for several days. The Public Schools.
