Our public schools closed a most successful school year of nine months last Friday, and two of our teachers, Miss Jennie Pettibone and Miss Clara Oleson, have taken their leave for their respective homes, while Prof. Barslou, who resides here will busy himself the greater part of the vacation in working on his new house and fixing up his lots that he has recently purchased. Prof. Barslou and Miss Pettibono teach the school the coming year. The board think it best to but the two teachers, which goes to show the implicit confidence they have in the ability of the professor and his assistant. Miss Oleson has proved herself a success in the school room and has rendered us good service as a teacher, and has made hosts of friends among her pupils and their parents, who regret very much to have her leave. We are informed that she has been offered one of the rooms in her home school at Ionia, and we wish to say that the board could not da better than to hire her as a teacher. Since the mail trains have changed time THE UPPER DES MOINES reaches us the same day that It is printed, just one day earlier than any other paper printed in the county, which gives us all the county news about 24 hours earlier than we have been getting it before. Mr. Pybus and Mr. Russell of Corwith took the train here this morning for Clear Lake to hear Rev. Talmage. Among the people of Wesley who went to Clear Lake to hear Talmage were Rev. Eastman and wife and daughter, A. L. Tryon and wife, E. E. Waite and wife, C. J. Emmons and wife, and Wm. Colby and daughter Mabel, A goodly number of our Wesley people will attend the Odd Fellows' celebration at Bancroft next Friday. Ben. Hopkins and wife are visiting with friends at Corwith this week, R. L, Lamoreaux and his brother Will, spent several days last week fishing at Okoboji, and report a pleasant time. Charley Jones of Sexton was in town Tuesday, Farmers are reporting that their crops are doing nicely. Those gentle showers we have been having are just what was needed. Decoration day was observed here last Tuesday. Our school was closed and teachers, pupils and a few citizens assembled at the cemetery with flowers for the graves of those that risked their lives in the defense of their country. There are but two soldiers burled here in the cemetery, Mr. E. A. Perry and G. W. Flack. Mr. Perry served in the late war, while Mr. Flack was a soldier in the Black Hawk war. After strewing flowers on the graves of those two, the pupils, headed by their teacher, marched to the grave of Wm. Ward and strewed flowers upon his grave as a tribute of respect to him, as he was always a true friend of education and also a scholar, one who in time past had lent a helping hand to advance the cause of education in the public schools of Wesley. Prof. Barslou read a little sketch of Mr. Ward's life of an early day in this county, also a poem that was very appropriate for the occasion. Revt Eastman then announced the benediction and they started for home feeling that the afternoon was profitably spent.
