Stacy gave some incidents of her early experiences in Kossuth, which tell the story of pioneer life. The later comers can form but little idea of those times even from the best'descriptions, but they are worthy of preservation as part of our history, and many interesting incidents are recalled in this paper. Mrs. Stacy said in part: In July of '57 I started from Philadelphia via Boston for the far away town of Algo na. My father and family had been here a year. I soon found myself at Iowa City, the terminus oC the railroad, and my brother threo miles out waiting for me, the sails of his prairie schooner fluttering in the brcexe. I made some purchases in the city and hired a man to take me to the camp. After we wore well started he says: " Did you notice how people looked at you." "No," said I, "why?" "They tookyou for a Mormon, there was a large company of them here a few weeks since, all the women wore broad brimmed hats like yours." Wo soon reached the prairie schooner, which instead of being guided by a rudder, was propelled by a long whip in the hands of the skilful driver of two yoke of very patient oxen. Take notice: If you wish to cultivate patience I do not know any better way than to ride behind a yoke of cattle 200 miles. Wo mounted our wagon of flour and household furniture, our seat a sack of Hour, and sailed away for the land of promise. Wo had no hair breadth escapes, but plodded steadily on, stopping whore- over night overtook us, pitching our tent, cooking our supper over a few coals, ana lying oil the ground eleven nights. The only drawback wo had was when the wagon broke down, and I was loft for hours by the stuff while help was found to remedy the bronk. As we were camped a little this side of HumbokU the 13th night out, Judge Call came along. Two weeks after I camo here my mother was taken sick, and the 12th of October she left us for the better land. My father made a prayer and together we sang a hymn, and we laid her body in the silent city, OI so silont. The third one laid there, to rest till the final trump shall sound. I was but slightly acquainted with anyone outside father's family, which then consisted of my father, two brothers and myself. For a number of years we lived a very quiet life, too far from the active world to participate iu its scones, no commotion except a slight riffle when someone was married, and I among the rest. Wo woinon spent our tirno with our household duties, and an occasional visit, when we talked over the days past and gone. We did not make formal calls, no use for card cases, but as soon as possible after dinner plodded our way through the prairie grass to some friend's house. You would like the bill of faro for tea. Well, usually we had warm biscuit and butter, and if iu the fall we had wild crab apple sauce or wild grape or plum, all sweetened with sorghum, which you might infer had seen its darkest days, judging from its color. Our flour also in those days rivaled Wilson's or Stacy's best in partaking in a large degree of the same color as the sorghum, probably on account of its close proximity to the aforesaid article. But it' the miller had succeeded in fanning out part of the cockle and mustard and so forth, and the man who brought it from Egypt was careful to keep it dry so it was not musty, we did not complain much about quality. But when the bin got so low we had to borrow from one another till the next grist came to town, or eat musty corn meal ground in a coffee mill, the question became a littlo serious. Thus we plodded on till the war of the rebellion broke out, when some of our loved ones left us for the far off war, so far, it seemed to us. For all we know was our dear ones left us. Once a week when the stage from Fort Dodge came we had papers and letters from those at the front, and then soon they sent us word that tho loved ones had left tho earthly scenes, and they scut them lir.uio to us silont and still in thoir last sleep, and wo wondered what it all monnt. My brother, James C. Taylor, enlisted in August, '01, aged 19, in tho 2nd Iowa cavalry. He never saw battle, but died in camp in St. Louis. The next win tor my oldest brother laid down and died in Central City, Rocky Mountains. There were many things in our western homos, crude and disappointing, still I think on tho whole we enjoyed tho new life as well or better than most pioneers do. rived Monda,y to put up a house for his son, Albert. • Col. Spencer of Algona was in town Monday looking after the local politicians: also C. L. Lund was here on business the same day. Rev. S. L. Eastman closed a very successful year as pastor of the M. E. church here last Sunday evening and started Tuesday to attend conference. The church is very anxious to see Rev. Eastman returned another year, but what action the conference will take no one can tell, but we hope to see him returned for another year at least, as the church has prospered the best under his care that it has over done. Should he be stationed elsewhere the best wishes of the people of Wesley will follow him. Freeman Muzzy and E. E. Waite started Tuesday for a tour through Nebraska to look up a location. It is rather a poor time of the year to leave this county to find a bettor one to live in. J. E. McMullen will preach to the people of Wesley next Sunday evening. Let everybody come out and give him a full house. John Ward and wife, Charley Bronson, Tom Gray, and Nate Studer till returned home Monday morning from Chicago, where they hnve been attending the fair. Jacob Lick tag is laying the foundation for his new house in the south part of town. W. T. Presnell has just completed a well at his livery barn, 203 feet deep, and has an abundance of water. Mr. Duff of Britt did the work. H. C. Hollenbeck has gone to Illinois to look after a stock of dry goods that Mr. Frink has been talking of trading for. If everything suits, Wesley wjll have another store. A little boy baby of average weight came last Saturday morning to bless the home of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Donaldson. All are doing well. Daye Fox returned home one day last week. Davo has been up in Minnesota for the past two years. W. P. Giddings received notice Monday that he had received the appointment as postmaster of Wesley. Mr. Giddings has been waiting patiently for it, and had about made up his mind that it was not going to come. His friends will be pleased to hear of his appointment, and we have every reason to believe that he will make a good postmaster. Success to you, Will. Mail Wanted.
