Large Assortment of- Lace Curtains, Opaque Shades, Curtain Poles, Carpets, etc., Just received by THE WEEK'S IOWA MEWS. A society paper says that onion socials are likely to be the rage in Scott county this season. Here is the way it was done: Six young ladies stand in a row and one bites ft chunk out of an onion. A young man pays ten cents to guess as to which of the ladies bit the onion. If he guesses rightly he kisses the other five ladies; if he does not he is only allowed to'kiss the girl with the onion- scented breath. The tariff is extremely reasonable, and the game is likely to become popular. Bank Examiner McCarthy says that the poorest bank in the state is able, if given time, to pay dollar for dollar. Astronomical investigations are all right but a railway track is not a good observatory. Down at Ottumwu, last week Sherman Crown and Miss Sockey attended the circus and went home by the railroad. They sat down on the ties to watch the comet, and both fell asleep and a passenger train knocked them both off. The lady was slightly hurt, but Crown is in a critical condition. ' Randolph Stewart, a husky negro of Port Dodge, has started on a record breaking tramp . to Chicago. He will follow the Illinois Central and register at each station. He guarantees to cover the distance in eight days. If he accomplishes this he gets a $250 purse, otherwise he gets nothing. Stewart made 50 miles a day the first two days, and will win his purse if he keeps up that gait. ______ one dates below specified will be $13.75. Sell July 17, return coupons good July 21 to 28.

THREE THINGS In which the Opera House Grocery leads: Butter, Coffee, and Canned Goods, Are a great attraction; you should see the show every night this week; but while doing so remember that Langdon & Hudson, Hiram C. Wheeler was one of the judges at the mowing machine contest at the world's fair. The McCormack seemed to be ahead, only one competitor showing up. .Sam. Scott of Clear Lake had alively experience a few days since with a recreant debtor. Sam. had a note against a fellow living at Ellington, who after repeated urging, called at his office and they entered into an agreement to renew the note by making a new one. While Sam. was making a new note and the old one lay in front of him, the cheeky debtor quietly reached over, tore his name from the note and walked out, leaving Sam. enduring a multiplicity of feelings. That is one way to liquidate, but may prove expensive in the end. Look at This. Reliable Grocers, We carry everything in our line. A sad accident occurred at Iowa Palls. A five-year-old boy of Operator Doxie of the B., C. B. & N. force was shot in the head by another little child who was carelessly handling a loaded revolver. The ball struck the child squarely between the eyes, and strange to relate did not cause instant death and the child still lives. LAND BUYERS IN WESLEY, Great Special Sale.

By the last of this week harvesting will be general throughout this part of the county. Last Friday and Saturday are noted as two of the warmest days of the season, Some of the themometers registered as high as 102 in the shade. A. L. Ward started out for a ride last Saturday evening and when coming up Main street his team became unmanageable, but was checked by someone on the street before any damage was done. R. B. Hopkins' wife Sundayed with her parents at Cylinder. Will Danson of Algona was doing business in our town last Thursday. An infant child of Fred French's is very sick with little hope of recovery. Ben Mortuse of Monona unloaded a steam thresher here Friday and ran it over to Hanna switch, where he intends starting out to thrash as soon as the season opens up. F. I. Chapin is building a new barn on his farm north of town. Thos. Gray, one of our leading real estate men, was doing business in Dakota last week for a few days, returning Saturday. Our depot agent informed us that there were 25 cars of new hay shipped from here last week, which is a good starter for the commencement of a new crop, L. D. Butts of Plymouth arrived here last Saturday to commence putting up his hay on his farm on Sec. 22 Prairie township. We have noticed in the past few days quite a number of strangers in our town looking for land. The favorable outlook for one of the best crops our county ever saw will have a tendency to induce people to locate in this part of the country. ^ MONEY for everyone at Skinner Bros.
