The Aiden Benedict company was at Ames last Friday. The Times says that with Walter Lawrence in the title role, it "put up a show that was great from beginning to end. The play is one .of deep plot and heavy work from beginning to end. The stereoptican serpentine dance was for the first time introduced at the Ames opera house and was simply grand as was also the work of the Spanish dancing girl. Walter Lawrence is a peerless actor, a man ot fine physique and great voice. He is supported by a strong company. Whittemore had a lively little time last week. Harv. Dailey had the contract to carry mail north through Fenton and going off for a visit deputized L F. Miller to act for him. He also left his livery outfit, including the mail route, in Mayor Boyle's hands to dispose of. The outfit was bought by the Munch boys and they went to get the mail. But Postmaster Dorweiler would not deliver it except to the regularly deputized carrier, and Miller got the pouches. The Champion intimates that the legal status of the alhtir will be tested.

Jeansons] Eagle Lake home: "It will interest some of our readers to know that about eio'ht miles from Armstrong, out in the country, away from all the so-called modern conveniences, lives a man, a Norwegian at that, who ten or fifteen vears ago, when there was no railroad, within twenty miles built a house cost- incr over forty thousand dollars, heated by steam, lighted by gas, hot and cold water all over the house, five servants, a It may oe aaaeo.

A sensational lot of rumors got into the Chicago papers about Mr. Woodworth's death, all unauthorized by Mr Woodwork's friends, and all duo to the fact that telegrams to Col. Spencer were delayed 30 hours and so no replies were received from him, and a man was sent from Chicago to learn why. There is nothing to the reports of merit. M. Woodwork's estate is estimated to bu worth about $50,000, there being 1,400 acres of land in this county. Ledyard is in the midst of agroat upheaval today. Last week Andy Dunlap and F. A.
