' / 7 BOY KILLED AT WESLEY, fiis Head Crushed Under the Wheel of a Threshing 1 Machine—Death Was Instantaneous. Wesley's School Principal Hardening His Muscle for Future User-Local Layout of the Week. WESLEY, Aug. 23.—Yesterday morning a little son of Louis Oestcher, who lives six miles north of Wesley, was playing in the straw where his father and men wore threshing. In moving the machine to a new stand among the stacks the boy was not noticed and the hind wheel of the separator passed over his head, killing him instantly. Tlie Weekly l!mls;et. WESLEY, Iowa, Aug. 22.—This part of the county was favored with a refreshing shower Monday morning. •Mrs. .T. D. Stnprg of Cedar Pulls has been hero for the past feu- days accompanied by Mrs. Model Inn of South Dakota, visiUny hoc son Charley und his family. .T. K. Mi'Mnllen Rnnduyod at Garner with friends, returning Monday. H. C. Hollcnback has boon doing some bridge work near Mr. Chipmau's place in Portland township during the past wook. G. If. Barslou has been helping him in order to harden up his muscle, preparatory tothccommeucine' of school Sept. 4. The new building for the Security bank will soon bo enclosed. When it is completed it will add very much to the beauty of our town. The workmen have Mr. Rums' now house ubout enclosed. Mr. Kunz will have one of the nicest residence in the city when ho gets it completed. •Carl Oleson has sold out his interest in the store to his partner, Mrs. Gray. The sale was made one day last week. Mr. Oleson will keep the creameries and run them, but expects to put most of his time in at Chicago, in the com- 'mission business. We all feel sorry to see Carl leave as he has been one of Wesley's live business men. He will be missed by the many friends he has made during his stay here for the past 10 years, but we all hope he will meet with good success in the new line of business. The store here will be run under the name of Mrs. Susie Gray and will continue to do n general mercantile business. Mrs. Gray has given the store business most of her time and attention since her first husband died, Mr. Lawson, and is fully competent to carry on the business in first class shape and to the entire satisfaction of her many customers. Wm. T. Presnell was doing business in Algona Friday. Miss Blanche Hackett of Haywarden is here visiting her aunt, Mrs. W. T. Presnell. Mr. and Mrs. Frank Grove of Alo-ona have been visiting the family of his brother, S. E. Grove. Our city marshal, Ed Adams, was down to the county seat last Saturday on business. Fred Cory wrote some of his friends that he was in the wreck on the Milwaukee road, on his way to the world's fair last week but got out without receiving any injuries. John Longbottom of Tr tirie township has treated himself to a fine new carriage. John is getting proud in his old days. We notice that Studer & Mathas are getting on a fine stock of fall goods. Farmers say that the dry weather has not affected the corn crop in their part of the county and that corn is doing nicely. This is cheering news as there is a large acreage of corn planted here this season. Our hog buyers are having a hard road to travel these days. The railroad company will not let them feed hogs in the yard and has threatened to lock the yards up and use them only for loading purposes, which will cora- pell them to build yards of their own to keep their stock in till they get a carload. The amount of cheek that was displayed here last Saturday morning by J. E. McMullen and John Atkinson, two good brother Canadians, would put a government mule to shame so bad that he would hide his head in the weeds. They came to the door of the barber shop and McMullen called out an unsuspecting man that was waiting for his turn to get shaved, telling him he wished to speak to him. After getting him_away from the door he halloos to Atkinson to run in so he could beat the victim out of his chance to get shaved. But what more could you expect of a couple of "Canucks." P. A. Cummings of Rock Valley, traveling salesman for Hunting & Co., was here last week making arrangements for the opening of their warehouse here. Monday was a busy day for our business men. The rain in the morning dampened the hay so that farmers took >-advantage of it and came to town to do their trading. money on his person. So he begged a ride with Mr. James from Fort Dodge to Dakota City, and a little south of the town ho assailed him with a bedstead slat, and after a most desperate struggle succeeded in killing him. But on going through the old man's pockets he found nothing but an accident policy and a small sum of money. The public was so enraged that a lynch court was organized and McCormick was tried and condemned to death by the mob, but after the rope was adjusted for his upward swing, the love of law and order prevailed over the malice of the crowd and the wretch was handed over to the courts and was promptly convicted and died years later in the penitentiary. JACKSON POEGOYEKNOE. [Concluded from Fourth page.] day: " Of course I am gratified. I had been a candidate for some time, but have been absent from the state for several weeks. I thought that somo other man who was on the ground would stand a better chance, but it seems the young mnn are working for uio." "How do you stand on the liquor question?" "Always on the republican platform," replied Mr. Jackson. "Personally I am in favor of local option by counties. That is the smallest unit we can bring it down to. Those who want prohibition should haye it; those who do not should have a system of high license, and that, I believe, will be the solution of the problem. In 60 odd counties of the 00 in the state, prohibition is an accomplished fact; in others public sentiment is strongly against the law and it cannot be enforced." "Will this position bring back republicans?" " I do not doubt it will. Iowa's largo majority for Harrison demonstrates that she is surely republican. Boies carried the state twice by 6,000 and 8,000 majority solely on the liquor question. With this question eliminated the democrats have no chance in Iowa. Speaking on the silver question, I be- live in bimetalism. I would have silver used as money as much as possible and maintain its parity with gold. I cannot say that I believe in the unconditional repeal of the Sherman law. That might eliminate silver entirely for a time. I believe it is possible to frame a safe bill that will retain silver as money in this country, without waiting for European nations to agree with us on the provisions for its general use." " How about free trade sentiment in Iowa?" "There is none among republicans. Every one may not be satisfied with the present tariff in its entirety, but to the principle of protection the republicans of our state are as stanch and true as those of Pennsylvania. We will carry the state without doubt, The party was never in bettor condition than now. Iowa has not felt the effects of hard times to any alarming extent. The state is prosperous. She has a corn crop, already matured, worth, even at the present prices, more than all the gold and silver the United States produces in a year. Her hay crop is of colossal magnitude, and the farmers are happy." NO LOCAL OPPION IN BTJKT.

Lightning Buriiti a lluuiboldt County Building—A Crime of Early Days Recalled. An old land mark at Dakota City in Humboldt is gone. Monday morning lightning hit it. It had been used for various purposes, among others as a Masonic hall, postofflce, and court 'house. This was the building also, where Judge Lynch held court in December, 1867, in the case of mob law vs. Martin MoCormick, for the murder of Wm. James. Mr. James had lately been over to England and returned with a fortune of several thousand dollars and McCormiok supposed he had the A Vender of Beer Runs Ainuck—Hurt Not a Good Beer Town. Last week a man named Schnuckels, who holds forth atFenton,cametoBurt and got a load of beer. The Monitor says: After loading his burden and preparing to start for the country he was solicited by some of our unhealthy individuals who probably desired something to restore their vigor, to supply their wants, which he had been accustomed to do on previous occasion. After driving around the buildings and into an alley, the thirsty flocked around like camels of the desert to an oasis, and their supply was distributed among them. But alas, one of the individuals went on a double duty and whose whole intent it was to have all matters rearanged. All was well. The desirous had secured their fill and Schnuckels went on his way. James Stow immediately afterwards filed information and Constable Wilder put on his pursuit. Obtaining the prisoner he returned to town and appeared in 'Squire Easterly's court, where he confessed and was relieved of $20 and costs. He was also informed as to the penalty for a second offense. We have the law and the power and advise people with the beer to keep it shy.

Last week the restaurant keeper, Mr. Patterson, was taken violently il 1 , then his daughter, and at last five five boarders came down. Doctors were called at once and their opinions seemed to conflict as to the cause of the strange occurrence. County Surveyor Tellier was there Saturday and reports that one doctor holds that typhoid fever is the trouble. But the general opinion is that some severe poison has been at work, and the trouble is credited to some lemonade which was allowed to stand in a tin pail for some time. The theory is that the acid working on the tin caused the lemonade to become very dangerous. The mistake of allowing preserved fruit or food of any kind to stand in tin vessels in the air has often been pointed out. It is not unlikely that neglecting this precaution is responsible for the trouble at Swea City. Last reports indicate that all will get well but Mr. Patterson. He may pull through. A Lonely Death. Last Saturday Michael Kaiser, who lives near the Stewart farm in St. Jo., died suddenly of heart disease while working alone in his field. When found his body was stiff and ho had been dead some time. He was buried Monday. Mr. Kaiser owned a good farm and was an industrious farmer. He is chiefly known as the leader in the trouble in St. Jo. a couple of years ago over moving the Catholic cemetery, during which it is said he shook his fist at the local priest. Some Tramps Wanted. Sheriff John F. Norris of O'Brien county was in Algona Wednesday last looking for some tramps who had stolen 40 pairs of shoes at Sheldon. They were taken up at Spencer for peddling without a license, but let go again before the Sheldon people knew their whereabouts. They came to Algona, but were not caught. Marshal Dailey captured a lot who answered the description and held them, but when the Sheldon marshal arrived he found that they were not the parties. Tramps and their petty depredations are getting numerous. In a Railroad Wreck. J. R. Jones was in a wreck at Dubuque last Thursday on his way to Chicago, but came out as his telegram announced " withoutascratch." Through some mistake in signals his train ran into a freight at the crossing with the Illinois Central road. The engine went through several empty freights, but finally hit one loaded with coal and then went down a bank some 14 feet. All the cars followed to the chair car. The coupling broke then and the sleepers and chair car staid on the track. Everybody was badly shaken up, but no one was killed. About 12 were taken to the hotels for care. Mr. Jones went on to Chicago for the fair. Want Horace to Reconsider. An important meeting of the democratic leaders was held at DOS Moines last Thursday. Among those present were: M. M. Ham, Dubuque; T. L. Maxwell, Creston; N. B. Holbrook, Ma- rongo; J. E. E. Markley, Mason City; Chas. A. Clark, Cedar Rapids; T. B. Perry, Albia; J. C. Kelly, Sioux City; J. J. Russell, Jefferson; Ed. H. Hunter, W. W. Witmer, and Henry Stivers, Des Moines. The visitors went in a body to Gov. Boies and begged him to accept the democratic nomination for governor again. They told him the action of the republican convention had simply made success with any other candidate an impossibility, and he must accept a third nomination. The governor listened to their pleadings, but told them plainly he could not accept under any consideration and he had fully determined to return to his family and his interests in Waterloo at the end of his present term as governor. The visitors, finding him determined, then asked that he allow them to nominate him for United States senator. This he also positively declined. The only concession ho would make was to agree to allow the state convention next Wednesday to pass a resolution indorsing him for United States senator. This was all the visitors could secure from Gov. Boies and it afforded them solace. A strange feature of the gathering was the absence of Chairman Fullen and Committeeman Buncombe from the meeting. It is believed a split in the democratic state central committe will be one of the sensations of the next few days. A Word to the Grocery Trade. There is no denying the fact that money is scarce, There are "dollars of our daddies" enough, no doubt, in the country, but somehow they don't seem to circulate, This makes times " close," as they say; so in order to meet these close times we get close to the public by Making Extra Close Prices, This does not mean that the quality of our groceries is poorer —not any—the high grade is maintained, no matter what hap- in the financial- world. To be convinced you need only to call and see for yourself that the quality is there the same as ever; the price is made to correspond with existing circumstances. What more does anyone want? These qualities ought to fill the bill with any reasonable person. $^Large stock of crockery, lamps and lamp goods—our specialties. Stock the Largest. Quality the Finest. Prices the Lowest.
