There Seems No Doubt iu the Matter Now— No Clue Is Had— Other County News. Whittemore's second flre seems clearly to have been of Incendiary origin. No clue has been found and no suspicion attaches to any individual. But no fire had been in the building for weeks where the flames started. The Champion states another suspicious circumstance. Spoor's tank, which contained the nearest visible supply of water for use in that block, had had a liberal supply of kerosene both in the water and all oyer the tank as if some one had intended to spoil that as an agent for extinguishing fire. Col. Keepers of Kankakee, 111., who owned the corner building, loses $1,500, as his insurance had run out a few days before the fire. He tells the Champion he will put $500 more with it to know who set the fire. _ The Wind at Lcdyard. The Leader says that the storm of a week ago Friday was hard up north. It enumerates the damage in Ledyard: H. L. Lonie's machine shed and chicken house were torn to pieces and scattered pretty well over the country and most of his chickens killed. Lumber piles at the Weyerhaeusar yards got considerably mixed up, and Till- money's coal house was picked up and landed against Win. Kent's house. When we looked out the next morning we found Chas. Lewis' machine shed had taken possession of our back yard and was considerably scattered. Some of the farmers report that they were out nearly all night looking for young stock that had been taken out into the fields. Ole Nuckling, a farm hand, started out to put out a fire he had made for a smudge while milking, and a hay rack oamo sailing through the air and knocked him into a barb wire fence, cutting his face up pretty badly. He called on Dr. Lowder -'the next morning and is now wearing a fine decoration of court plaster. Ed. Chrlschllles' CUBO. The Garner Signal, in noting the taking of Ed. Chrlschilles of Fenton to the asylum, says: Ed. seemed to be sound except upon his one hobby of forming an intelligence bureau for collecting information of criminal offenses and poor debtors, and on this he was decidedly off. His is a very mild case of insanity and a few weeks treatment in the asylum will probably effect a cure. Hurt Monitor. Del. Angus came home Wednesday from Geneve, Wis., where he went as a delegate from the Iowa State University to a student's convention. Frank Dau returned on Saturday from his visit at the Omaha exposition. He was there the day of the dedication of the Iowa building and he says Iowa people were everywhere. He says the exposition is all right. Frank Anderson is at work at present with Mr. Haight, the county grader, up in Greenwood township. He was home over Sunday. He says the storm last Friday night upset their tents in which they were sleeping and they had a great time. One of the men got hit on the head with something and was knocked senseless for a time. He says they all know exactly how hard it rained. _ Tl»e Storm at Swoa City. The Herald aays the wind a week ago Friday was too rigorous: The greatest damage we have heard of was the blowing down of Nils Monson's barn. It was just building, 48x64 feet in size, with 24 feet posts, and the roof boards were only partly on. The lumber was broken up a good deal and the loss will be considerable. At C. A. Molinder's the machine shed was moved partly off the foundation. In town Sanborn and Stone's cornoribs were overturned, and in the country Mrs. P. G. Erickson and Chas. Halberg had their windmills blown down. _ Wesley News. Frank Bacon has now sold his valuable trotter, " Waterloo Girl 1 ,." to Will Noonan at Corwith. She holds an excellent record and brought Frank the good sum of $500. Miss Mann, a trained nurse from Algona, arrived Wednesday and will assist Dr. Walters in the operation to be performed on Joe Geotz. Wesley Will Attend. • The News says of the war concert at the Algona opera house Friday evening: The price of admission is 85 cents second son of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. S. Angus. He is a model young man of steady habits, has friends by the score and Is one of our most promising young men. The bride Is a lady worthy his choice, possessed of the highest traits of character and one of the county's successful school teachers. They will live fct the Angus home, where the groom has principal charge of the farm duties. Another season G. S. Angus and wife are likely to retire from the farm and make their home elsewhere. Wesley Reporter. Last Wednesday morning while we were havivg such a fine electrical display lightning splintered five telephone posts just opposite Merdlth Lloyd's place east of town. Charley Falk is in correspondence with a Wisconsin miller who is thinking of locating a mill here. If there is anything our farmers need it is just such nn enterprise, and wo see no reason why a properly conducted mill would not pay well.
