THE COUNTY WE LIVE IN, BEVE&Ati TOWNS Wffit OEtEBEATE. Ah Epitome of the Happenings in Efg Kossnth During the Seven Uays Pnat. , Bancroft is going to celebrate the Fourth of July. Wesley, Gertaania, afcd other towns are talking of it, but Bancroft has begun preparations. Bancroft will also have a big race meeting in July, presumably in connection with the celebration. The committees for the celebration are Messrs. Sherman, Campbell and Mayer, a soliciting committee; Samuel Mayne on speaker, and E. C. Anderson on band. Burt Monitor. Stephen Sharp intends going to Chicago soon for medical treatment. A bunch on the lower side of his right jaw, close to the jugular vein, has given him much annoyance of late. It is pronounced cancer, is constantly growing, and is in such a spot that it safe removal will be attended with difficulty. We hope its removal will be followed by his ultimate recovery. Several years ago he had a cancer removed from his lower Up. At 11 o'clock a special stock train left Burt Wednesday for Chicago. D. Paine had six cars from here nnd one at Irvington, making seven in all, S. Nicholson four, and J. Elvidge four, making 16 cars in all. S. Nicholson, Jas. Goodwin, Rod Jain, George and Ernest Paine, Frank Dau and Steve Sharp went in with them. ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, MAY 11, 1898, ,.,. J _.^ i ,_ J , : ,_.. ^^.^ ..„. ^ ... ' Ledyard Lender. People wishing to come north on the midnight train from Algona can now amuse themselves in open air until the train arrives, as the depot is no longer kept open for that train. There is a good deal of travel on that train out of Algona and it seems as though this branch of the Northwestern bad business enough so it could afford to keep at least one depot open between Eagle Grove and Elmore, especially where the road runs through a county seat town the size of Algona. • Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Stout have departed for Vernon Center, Minn., where Mr. Stout takes charge of an elevator for the Hubbard & Palmer elevator company. Mr, Stoat has had charge of that company's elevator at this place for the past eight months. Mr. Stout was one of Algona's early day furniture dealers, some 25 years ago.' Swea City Herald. Andrew Rundgren, who has been working in Cronholm'e hardware ever since it started, severed his connection therewith last Saturday. Algona district missionary convention will be held at Swea City, Iowa, Thursday, Friday and Sunday evenings, May 12, 13 and 15. The presiding elder and several other ministers will be present. Uncle Joe Tennant of Algona was in town Saturday night. He was out with a traveling man swinging around the circle of country stores and to get a few breaths of country air. He drove home Sunday. .then let them fill their agreement. This way of saying a thing and doing another isn't what it is cracked up to be and never will an individual or company succeed as richly as they would if they were to follow the lines of perfection and honesty." . Kftrl t»ompe Killed. WhitteraoreChampion: KaHPompe, eldest son of Frank Pompe, met with an accident on Friday, which proved fatal the next day. He had unloaded some lumber which he had taken up from Whittemore for his father, and started to go to his home only a short distance away. . One of the horses became frightened while crossing a culvert and shied to one side, running the wagon off the bank. At this point one of the seat hooks broke and let Karl fall to the ground in front of the hind wheels which passed over his body causing internal injuries from which he died Saturday night. The funeral was held at 2 p. m. Monday and the remains laid away in the Lotts Creek cemetery. A wife and four small child- dren remain to mourn his sad death, and have the sympathy of all. Geo. It. Cloud's Career. Swea City Herald: It is reported that Geo. R. Cloud, formerly an attorney at Algona, has been found dead in Arizona. Cloud was abrllliantyoungfellow but he couldn't drink "a glass or two" and then quit. Ho fell into fast company at Algona and their "revelry" cost him his reputation and business. He got into trouble on every hnnd nnd the appeals of a loving bride and close friends were insufficient against the craving appetite and the example of associates, to win him from his downward course. Every person who assisted him in dotting a drink has a part in his destruction. Draw your own moral. months, 25 cents for three months. A trial order solicited. Sample copies free on application.

The building will be completed within a month and G. F. Hohn will at once take possession with hie restaurant. Wesley News. There is some talk of celebrating the Fourth of July this year. We hppe it will be more than talk and that Wesley will give one of the best celebrations this summer that was ever given here. On Saturday last Charley Falk arrived with a carload of calves and out of 90 which he brought only 72 were offered at auction the others having been spoken for in advance. The sale took place at the stock yards and a large crowd of bidders were present, The calves brought prices ranging from $6.50 to $12.75. . Weslpy Reporter. .F. B. Hedriok now rides in a fine top buggy at Sexton, which he purchased last'week, Alex. White, one of Algona's popular lumbermen, was in Wesley Wednesday. He says Algona will have electric lights inside of ninety days. Good for Algona. At the Garner Mi E. church at 7 p. m.

White-living north of Sexton had the misfortune to have one of his colts accidentally fall io a well in which there was 20 feet of water; but by the energetic and helping' hand of John Fitch, it was' rescued with nqt a scratch. < Fred Corey's Fnst Horses. Britt News: While at Wesley last week Fred Corey invited us toloolcover his racing stock and as we were always partial to good horse flesh we accepted the invitation. In Fred's stable is John Berkley, probably the best pedigreed horse iti the state of Iowa. Mr. Corey also has a young trotter with as fine a pedigree sis any horse fancier could wish for. Gov. D. Jr., is the youngster's name. Fred willcampaign his horses through the state the coming season. Aluonn's New City Engineer. Burt Monitor: Chns. Foster was at Algona and Burt over Sunday. From the council proceedings at Algona we learn that he gets the position of superintendent of public works. He will soon move up and take charge. He gets a salary of $60 per month. Charley is a steady fellow, Algona gets a good man, and the Burt people will be pleased to see htm back to the county. Harry Foster gets a job under him as fireman at the water works. Tfo Wayward. Sinners In Algona. Britt News: Captain Comstock and his wife of the Britt Salvation Army corps returned from Alffona last Thursday, where they spent a couple of days in pointing out the right path to the wayward Algona sinners. LOVELY LETTERS. "What lovely letters I receive from Ma • ry Hopkins," said one young lady to another in our hearing, and while we are not acquainted with the individual referred to, yet this remark gives us a favorable opinion of her, which we likewise have of all who master the art of letter writing, for such persons seldom fail to win their way to social and business prominence. Parents, give your boys and girls a chance. Buy each one of them, who Is ten years old and over, a scholarship in some school of correspondence where trained teachers conduct a practical and instructive and exceedingly Interesting course of social and business correspondence with their scholars, old or young, at their homes. At the school named below the price of tuition has been reduced to the remarkably small sum of $3.40 per year, payable sixty cents quarterly in advance, or 83.00 in one cash payment. For some time this school has also furnished its scholars all needed stationery, and will continue to do so in the future. Let that progressive word, " Now," which has been the key note to so many successful careers, be your watchword, and apply at once for a scholarship in the National School of Correspondence at 3 fourth Ave. South, Minneapolis, Minn.
