THIS BES MOINE8J ALGOKA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, MAHCS 80, 1898, ALL OVER BIG IOSSUTH, fidotfs o» toa fto aoofi fof us. Bancroft and Whittomorc Will fut Up Seine Good BulidiHB8-Gen- oral News of the County. Bancroft and Whlttetnore are In for building booms this spring. Other towns are going to have new buildings, But these two will make a notable improvement. The excavation is already made for a two-front two-story brick block at Bancroft to cost $8,000. It is being built by some new men from Rochester, Minn. P. M. Barsalou also has the ground cleared for a two-front dbe-story brick, and the new Catholic school, io be larger than Algeria's Third ward building and to cost $8,000, Is ready for the contractors. For Whlttemore the latest report from Mayor Boyle is that J. M. Farley will put in three brick fronts, E. Chrls- ohllles, one; T. F. McGovern, one; A. E. Lion & Co., one; F. C. Groneman, one; A. Fenske, one; and possibly One' 1 by himself. At Burt the Savings bank will put in a brick this spring. ]jedy«r<l Loader. Deputy Sheriff McDonald is making a good officer. The acreage of wheat in this vicinity will bo very large judging from the amount of seed that the elevators are putting out. Someone set the large slough west of P. Dodlor's and east of Giles', in Grant township, on Ore Tuesday evening. It made a great old fire and one or two of Earl Stephens' hay stacks went with it. N. E. Bradburn is adding improvements to his farm northeast of 1 town in the way of a two-story hog house built on a good stone foundation. Bancroft Begistor. A K. of P. lodge is soon to be organized at Germanla, and about 30 names will appear on the charter roll. G. F. Hollo way has .one of the new power horse clippers that does its work perfectly and makes a smooth looking animal of the horse run over. J. A. Campbell has put in a tank running the width of the Racket show window and will have a lot of gold fish, pol- lies, etc., as an attraction. Mr. Kessel of Seneca met with a bad accident while hunting near Swan Lake Wednesday. He was lying in a small hole shooting as the game flew over and in some way he got the muzzle of his gun full of dirt and was digging it out with his fore finger when the gun apparently discharged itself, for he says he don't think he had his other hand near the trigger. It blew the one finger oft and blistered the hand badly. Dr. C. . M. C. Walters dressed the wound. Qormanla Standard. The Catholic church is talking very strongly of erecting a church building here this spring. Wesley Reporter. The stone for the Reform Christian church northeast of Wesley is on the ground and work will be commenced soon. Mrs. Harry Dodge of St. Paul, but formerly of Algona, was transacting business in Wesley on Wednesday. From a peck of potatoes.bought of Obed Robinson two years ago, and planting the increase last year H. O. Peters raised over 200 bushels. He says the investment was a good one. Mrs. Dr. McCormaok was here Monday looking after her property. She has been living for some time with her daughter, Mrs. Esterly, at Ottoson, but a saucer or a tallow eanflle, and we hope something will be done in ttOh. that dtrec- tVesiey Owing to some misunderstanding. Rev. Day of Algona failed to appear and give hlSflecture on " Sleepy Hollow*?,, for the benefit of the Epworth League Tuesday evening, as expected. He will, however, give the lecture in the near future. J. M. Dally of Algona has accepted a position as clerk with the Ceiltral house. Mr. Dally has had experience in the hotel business and will no doubt render valuable assistance to the new hotel. Fred Corey has secured a new contrivance for ridding horses of their extra growth of hair with which they are usually supplied in the spring in a few minutes, and from our informant we learn that he is doing a big business. Burt Monitor. The fourth separator for the Burt cooperative Creamery was ordered by the directors at their regular.meeting Saturday. E. P. Keith took home a handsome surrey froni the Burt Wigwam yesterday. Mr. Keith is one of the enterprising farmers that can afford it. Peter Kriethe will manage his big farm himself this season. They will keep three hands steady. J. R. Mawdsley and Christian Dau are still running close at the creamery. Mr. Mawdsley's last check was $70,49, Mr. Dau's was $68.22. Rev. W. B. Greenshiolds and wife are contemplating a visit to Scotland this summer. They are planning to get away about Juno 1 and returning by Sept. 1. It has been nine years since they left the mother country, and this visit may be the last. A gathering of considerable importance and honor to Burt is the meeting of the Fort Dodge Presbytery which convenes hero the second Tuesday of next month. We are not centrally located for such a gathering and the attendance is likely to be light on that account, but 40 or 50 ministers will likely be present. The people of Burt will be called upon to entertain them, a privilege which; will no doubt be cheerfully volunteered. Ferdinand 'jollier's check for cream at the Fenton' creamery for February was $133. . THE WEEK IN WESLEY. expects shortly'to move to Fayette and reside with her sister. Tom Way has been more or less interested in Britt newspapers for the past 20 years, and no sooner had he sold his interest in the Tribune last week than he purchased the News plant. A Mr. Reed of Chicago is associated with Mr. Way in the deal. Messrs. Way & Reed are capable men and under their management Britt will be well represented. XiuVerne News. Horace Mann accompanied County Surveyor Telller west of Algona Tuesday to assist in establishing a disputed boundary line in Irvington. Hill & Peck of the German bank have rented a space in Hof Bros., hardware store and will not put up any temporary building, They expect to be ,ready for business by April 4. In about ten days or less work will begin on their building, which will be of brick, 22x40 feet in size, one story. Swe» City Herald. A business deal was consummated Jiere last week which takes away a good citizen and brings in another. N. Ganfleld, the pioneer hard ware dealer, sold bis stock and building to H. D. Garlock of Buffalo Center, taking a farts in Murray county, Minn., as part payment. The Harrison township board of eub- direotors met Monday and selected Jphn J3. Peterson for secretary, They levied $2,500 teachers' fund and $500 for contingent fund. It was voted to have eight months school in the township this year and one month extra in Swea City. A motion to cut the wages of second grade teachers to $30 per month was lost, and the wages will re^' main as before, $36 and $32. The board consists this year of the following: J. A. Cronbolm, president; S. H. Me- Ad&ms, John Cain, Mike MoCann.Geo, Bicker, Frank Slyter, Louis Eriokson #nd A. If. Anderson. The same teachers were employed for the city term. Death of Miss L/olunan—School Notes and the Weather. WESLEY, March 29.—The storm Sunday was all that could be desired in the way of a snow storm. Large drifts met our gaze on every side Monday morning, and everybody was out early with their snow shovels clearing the walks and by 10 o'clock every walk was cleared. • -Will Reed of Algona was a Wesley caller Saturday. Farmers have been very busy sowing wheat and some oats have been sown. The ground is in first-class condition, but Is rather dry for this time of the year. However the heavy snow that has recently fallen will moisten it up to a great extent. The Wesley News made Its appearance for the first time last Thursday and has a very healthy look, both in size and local news. It is very evident that the business men of our town appreciate the advent of another paper here from the. way they so liberally patronize it. We wish Editor Peterson success in his enterprise, as we believe that a good, clean newspaper is a stimulus to every town and community wherever it is located, and we have every reason to believe that the News will be that in the strictest sense of the word. Our schools will close next Friday for a week vacation. Prof. Brown will busy himself, during the time arranging for his summer school at Algona. Quite a number of his advanced sohol- IN THE KLONDIKE BEGION. M. Ei Schlelchcr tells of ill* Trlp- The Rush to that Country is Simply Immense. DYEA, Alaska, March 13.—We are a Dyea at last after a long, tedious jour ney covering over 3,000 miles. Ar .rived just at noon and have been trying to get our freight ever since. Frelgh is towed over from Skaguay on a leitei by a tug boat when the tide is in and towed onto a sand bar as far as possible When the tide goes out the team drive up alongside of the leiter and load up. 'A piece of everybody's bag gage or outfit is all mixed up. Every thing is hauled up town to a big yar< by about 160 teams and thrown off in heap like a load of pine wood. One leiter will consist of 100 to 150 tons Then the yard gang sort it out. Each man has every parcel or the supply There are about 350 horse contents After it is sorted out and checked of you get 24 hours to remove it or ar< charged half a cent a pound for each 2' hours. It costs three cents a pound to get freight hauled from here to Sheer Camp, a distance of nine miles. I team of horses with wagon and hat-nee cost from $500 to $1,600. I have no yet succeeded in getting my mail sim ply because I have not had time to dc so. It seems a strange thing to say bu in order to do so one must fall In a lim which extends way out Into the" stree and gradually work your way in. Thi takes about throe hours. This will al so give you an idea of the number o people hero. Thousands of thorn should judge. Dyea is about one mil in length but very narrow. It is only a few months old but nearly every bus! ness you can think of is here represent ed. For instance there aro dentists, doc tors, roal estate mon, lawyers, about 20 hotels and all kinds of stores, etc. The buildings run all the way from a ten up to a shack built of boards. The tents and log houses are most numer ous. At some of the restaurants 01 lunch counters you can oat on a dry goods box or stand up at a very poo; excuse for a lunch counter, where thei pass the toothpicks around on a dus pan and pepper and salturo handed ou in tomato cans. You can, however got n good meal for 60c and a bed for the same price. Today is Sunday bu you would never have known it hero as everything is the same every day It IB a great place for crime. We have only been here one day and a night bu during that short time ono man has boon held up and robbed of $600, anoth er was robbed of $40 and last night i gambler was shot dead, but still every thing goes merrily on as though noth ing had happened. The weather is fine here just at present. In fact it i too fine, for it is spoiling our sleighing However, we have been very fortunate so far. That Is we had no bad luck Our water trip was not a pleasant one but we came through In good shape My goats are getting along nicely They now climb up a plank so steep that a man can hardly get up and think nothing of it. We expect to start up the canyon tomorrow and they wll" then have work to do and plenty of it Nearly everyone is writing home to night. You can write often, as we will be able to receive mall from the mal! carriers. Everything looks favorable and we are going well prnrwrpd. We are all well and have dreadful appe< tltes. Will close for this time. M. E. SOHLEICHEB. Cheap Rates to the West and South.

Miss Ella Lehman, who has been suffering for the past year with consumption, died the 25th at the home of her father three miles north' of Sexton. The funeral services were held at the house Monday at 11 a. m. conducted by Rev, Plummer, of whose church she was a member. Miss Lehman was a very devout Christian young lady and leaves many sorrowing friends, besides her father, mother, two brothers and a sister to mourn her early departure from this life. She was born in Washington county, Maryland, in 1872, came to Illinois with her parents when quite young and from there to Kossuth county about 15 years ago. She was 26 years and one month old when she died. Our public schools will give a public entertainment at Kunz' hall Friday evening, If the public wishes to enjoy a first-class entertainment it should come out Friday evening.
