It seems that all the "suckers" Ore not dead. At Crescent a few days ago several boys proposed a snipe hunt. A barrel with a sliding cover was rigged up by some of them and a swamp a few miles from town was visited. The barrel was placed in position and a string attached to the cover. The victim, Will Peterson, was attached to the other end of the string. The other boys started off, ostensibly to drive in the snipes, but really to return to town, which they did. Six hours later Peterson returned home, tired, hungry and wet, as it had rained most of the time he was holding the string. The treasury department has issued instructions to the United States officials to not arrest Chinese who have failed to register under the Geary law, which went into effect May 5. The attorney general has supplemented this circular by instructing United States district attorneys to defer procedings against Chinese under this net, except under orders of court, until further notice. The Carroll Herald saya that longhaired, oily George T. Williams carries his gall with him. Down in Florida the Iowa editors were informed that a gentleman, on whose card was inscribed G. T. Williams, The Fighting Editor from Iowa," was acting as advance agent for the excursion and had succeeded in procuring free fare on that account from Jackson clear down to Orlando. He was still on his way, working from town to town, inflicting communities with his fake write-ups, when the railroad people caught him and turned him down. He would have joined the excursion then had he been- permitted to do so. George is a credit to the craft and to the state. A special from Sibley, Iowa, says'that the iron post which , marks the spot where Iowa, Minnesota and South Dakota meet, is sinking and falling to one side. The monument is not only noteworthy as marking a boundary for three states but is historic from the fact that it was established by no less a personage than Jefferson Davis of the United States army, when he was an officer before the war in this, then uninhabited, region. The iron post of the frontier remained in position longer and better than the corner stone of President Davis' southern confederacy. Charley Budd, the champion wing shot, defeated Rexroot, the eastern expert, in a 100 live bird match at Oskaloosa Thursday for $100 a side. Budd killed 80 out of a possible 91 and Bex- root 70, A peculiar and very serious accident happened to little Earl Sturgeon at Clarion last week. He was riding in a buggy which was being driven behind a wagon, and in attempting* to get out while the buggy was in motion, had his right foot caught in the wheel and hie body caught in between the box and crossbar, and before the buggy could be stopped the leg was torn off at the knee and dropped to the ground. Physicians were summoned and dressed the mangled leg. At this writing he is doing as well as could be expected. The compositors on the Charles City Advocate are of the female persuasion. A few days ago the proprietor instituted a new set of rules governing the em- ployes and among them was one commanding them to go to bed at 9:30 p. m. This raised the ire of the females and they told the proprietor he could go to bed when he wanted to but they would set up as long as they liked. The outcome of the matter resulted in a strike by the female help. "THE SUCCESSFUL PAKSON," Rev. Deforest Speaks at the Bits Jiplscopaliau Gathering at Cedar Rapids. The Cedar Rapids Republican reports the Episcopalian meeting of last week very fully and says: " The Successful Parson" was the next sentiment. Rev. DePorest of Emmetsburg responded happily. He did not fill the bill as a successful village parson. That depended to some extent on the conception of a country parson. If it laid in the use of firearms, he was there; if it consisted of riding on horses after fleet- footed animals he could be successful in that case. This picture of the country parson was peculiarly English but here it suggested other conditions. A village parish and parson must be somewhat different from the English picture. In a measure it is true that in this country we seek, and rightfully seek, greatest strength in the largest cities; we are seizing these centers of population, ought to, and we should herald to all vilUages this fact. Iowa said this even considering Cedar Rapids, Des Moines and Emmetsburg. [Laughter.] There were many prosperous village parishes in Iowa. Twenr ty years ago at Emmetsburg the Episcopalians composed one-fourth of the population. There were four families at that time. The parish has grown and is now second in the diocese in this particular, the largest number of municants in proportion to the population. Rev. DeForeat made the most entertaining speech of the evening, and was applauded with great energy. WESLEY DITHER METTLE, Tho Fnst Train to Stop Hereafter— Nearly One Hundred Converted at the Revival—News of tho Week. WESLEY, May 15.—Our farmers are busy planting corn this week and will finish the most of it. They report the small grain coming on nicely. Thco. Bender and A. Carpenter of Spencer wore doing business in our town one day last week. A few Wesley boys went to Algona Friday to attend the funeral of H. A. Sessions. We notice that Mr. Colby is improving tho looks of his now barn with a coat of paint. Olo Peterson went to Minneapolis on business Monday. E. F. Bacon is in Des Moines visiting his family and attending to some business. Christ Oloson of Forest City, one of Wesley's old timers, was visiting over Sunday hero with some of his old friends and neighbors. Hosaysthathe has sold his farm and will go to Oregon to take a look at that country. Mrs. Dellie Pritchard of Cherokee is hero this week visiting her brother, A. Z. Ward. Mrs. Pritchard is quite an artist and has some flue looking pictures of her drawing on display at F. Heal's drug store. Thos. Pybus, J. McMullin and Chas. Pain of Corvyith drove over to Wesley Friday evening to attend tho revival meetings. The fence around the cemetery is in and is a good job. F. M. Butts arrived here last Friday morning from Chicago. He expects to be here for some time to look after business. A petition wns circulated among our business men and sent to Superintendent Cosgrove of Mason City complaining to him about the fast trains No. 7 and No. 8 not stopping here. Since our agent has received a dispatch that all passenger trains would stop at Wesley until further notice. It gives us good, train accomodations to do business in Algona. Sunday was a red letter day for the Methodist church of Wesley. Rev. D. D. Benedict, the evangelist, closed a two weeks' revival Sunday night resulting in 97 conversions. At the morning service 38 received the ordinance of baptism, 08 united with the church, some by letter from other churches, others who have been on probation were taken in in full connection, while the rest joined on probation. Take it all around it was a happy time for everybody. Rev. Benedict went to Peterson Monday morning where he will conduct a series of meetings for three or four weeks. Our pastor, Rev. Eastman, feels very much pleased when he looks over the results of this two weeks' work of revival meetings. He and his estimable wife will leave nothing undone for the spiritual wellfare of those that have recently made a start in a religious life. Dr. McCormack was called to see a. sick child of Fred Cork's, who lives three miles and a half out of town, last Saturday, The doctor rode out with Mr. Cork in the wagon and footed it back home making the distance in less than an hour. The doctor is quite a stepper in his old age. Mrs. Chas. Falk fell while getting out of the wagon one day last week, putting her shoulder out of joint. Dr. Hill was called and adjusted everything in a few minutes and left her feeding comfortable. Gray & Brunson drove in a carload of fat hogs from Buffalo township last Saturday. It was a rather slow way to take hogs to market but beats hauling them in a wagon. It is reported that Amandus Studer has purchased the store room and stock of goods here Geo. Ludwig and takes possession this week. Rodney Hill of Britt was doing business here Monday. Geo. A. Frink purchased the other day, of J. P. Johnson, the old Tuttle property. This is one of the finest residences in town. PIMENTO DULOES—Something new, This is considered by epicures a very delicious morsel. It is a sweet Spanish red pepper preserved in pure olive oil.
