THE UPPER DES MOINES was mistaken a week ago in making P. W. Pugh and E. G. Bowyer relatives through Dr. James Pugh of DesMoines. Mr. P. W. Pugh informs us that no such relationship exists. A dainty card announces the arrival of Margaret Merrifield Walker into this pleasant world. She is at home at Rev. Walter Walker's in Elgin, 111., and,has been since April 15. May her life combine May flowers with April showers. Frank Hutchison came down to get into company F, but got into the town callaboose instead. Frank's besom was not quite up to war pitch so he stimulated. 'Squire Clarke gave him ten days at hard labor, which will be equal to one campaign. Rev. F. E.

The trial of JelTerson Davis was begun in April. -The second trial of John H. Surratt was also begun in April. -T- -5- -f- The 12th session of the state legislature adjourned April 8. One of the issues was the repeal of the law providing for the publication of the state laws In the county newspapers. C. W. Tenney of Mason City represented Kossuth and THE UPPER DES MOINES said he was not square on this matter with his previous pledges. The law was not repealed, however. THE UPPER DES MOINES had several columns of state aws each week. -*- -s- •*> One of the acts of this legislature was fixing the times of holding court in the Fourth district. It took in everything from Kossuth and Hum- Doldt west to the Missouri. The new statute declared that Buena Vista county was attached to Clay, O'Brien to Iherokee, und Plymouth and Sioux to Woodbury for court purposes. There were not enough people in these coun- .ies to warrant separate court sessions. Here is an item of history of the Stacy mill that the farmers have bought. It is dated Feb. 28, 1867: ' The greater part of the people of the lounty will rejoice to learn that our worthy citizen, D. W. King, has bought Mr. Foster's interest in the grist and saw mill of this place. Mr. King is a oractical mill man. With two such men as Stacy and King at the head we can confidently predict that something will be accomplished and that right speedily." -t- -i- -r- An advertisement reads: L. K. Gar- leld is now in Algona, where ho will •ernain a few days to perform all operations in his profession as a surgical and mechanical dentist. References, Hon. L. H. Smith, Marcus Robbins, Algona; J.

H. Ingham his stock of agri- jultural implements, and he went out >f the machinery business. •*-•*••*• Old friends of John A. and J. B. Winkel will read this notice, of Feb. 27,1867, with interest: "The Winkel oys have both joined the good terap- ars, and as an evidence that they are n earnest about it and mean to live up o the principles of the order they are now filling a large ice house with enormous blocks of this pure element in a jongealed state." -5- .-5- -t- Rod Jain of Portland came in March o locate permanently.

The Horace Sohenck home on Black Cat caught fire, a^d a. little boy seven years old, who was up stairs, and the baby, three ears pid, who ran up to save a pet dog, were bpth lost.

In the pool vs. billiard case decided by Judge Qu irton tit Cv Under Webster's dictionary was brought into requisition for the purpose of defining the meaning of billiards, It gave the meaning as: "A game played with ivory balls on a cloth covered rectangular table bounded by elastic cushions: the player to impel his ball with his cue so that it shall either strike (carom upon) two other balls or drive another ball into one of the po •'><•! wiiiHi the taple is furnished." The Emmetsburg Tribune says that if the'Caseis appealed to the supreme court, the attorneys will insist that pool is not billiards, because the balls used for pool are composition and not "ivory" as given by Webster.

The Hoys Disappointed at Not Being Able to Go to Bob Mollies. War talk is all that we can hear on our streets now. When the news reached Wesley that war was declared it was but a few minutes until the stars and stripes were floating from every business house in town, A good many of our citizens expressed their willingness to enlist if the country needed them and to see the fire in the eyes and the determined look in the faces of the old veterans that served their time in our civil war one would have to admit that true American patriotism has not died out any in the past 35 years; if anything it is on the increase. To see men standing in groups around on the street corners reminds us of the dark days of '61 when the war cloud gath,- ered over us, some with the look of despair on their faces, while others with a more hopeful look and that determination that it can be done. How much difference now to what it was then—then the country was divided, and the sympathies of many of our neighbors and friends were with the enemy of pur nation, but today we are standing a united people, shoulder to shoulder, all facing the one way with but one thought, and that our country's honor shall be maintained, Quite a number ol puv Wesley" went to Algona, to try to epljs$, Jj Tanner it" seems was the could pass the ..
