THE TJPPER BBS MOINES: ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, JULY 13, 1898. THE NEWS OF THE COUNTY BELATED CELEBRATION MENTION Burl's Patriotic Spirit Given Vent In the Burning of Powder—Miscellaneous Notes. WESLEY, July 11.—Dr. Keneflck of Algona was here Saturday in council with Dr. Walters. Mrs. Ann McPher- Bon, a worthy old lady, is suffering with gangrene in one of her feet. The doctors think that the only show is to have the foot amputated, but Mrs. Me- Pherson is a lady 70 years of age and it is feared she could not stand the shock. They left the matter with her children whether they perform the operation or not, and up to this time they are undecided. Mrs. L. G. Johnson, one of Chicago's groat reformers, lectured here in the Methodist church Saturday evening, and Sunday morning and evening to a largo audience. Mrs. Johnson is a good speaker, and her little talk given here in the cause of temperance is highly spoken of by nil. Rev. McNameo of Algona will fill Rev. Plummor's appointments for him while he is in the cast. Mrs. F. M. Butts and her sister Mrs. Church arrived Saturday from Chicago to see their mother, Mrs. Ann McPherson. Some of our farmers are busy cutting barley and rye. Measles are prevalent in our town at present, several families being afflicted with them. Mrs. W. L. Lehman, who has been visiting her sister, Mrs. Hendrix, in southern Iowa for some time, returned home Monday. It may be a little late, but we wish to say that Wesley had one of the biggest and best celebrations here the Fourth that we over had. The program was a good one and was carried out to the letter. Father Nnglo of Garner gave us a good address, also Mr. Kelley of Garner, while the address of welcome by Mayor Ward was fitting and to the point, and was applauded throughout. The Wesley band assisted by the Britt band and Salvation army, furnished music, and we must say it was first class in every respect. It is claimed there were over 3,000 people here, and a more orderly crowd was never seen in our town on such an occasion. During the afternoon the Salvation army gave us some music and a little talk at intervals, which had a tendency to keep the thoughtless quiet. They made their headquarters at Zim Barrett's real estate office dur- the day. Zim informed us that he had joined and was looking for recruits and wanted to know if we wanted to join. Zim looked happy, and in fact it has been a long time since we have seen him feel as good as he seemed to feel the Fourth. Swen City Herald. Capt. R. E. Jeanson requests us to send the Herald to him at Okoboji until Sept. 1. Chas. Anderson, adjoining town, had seven two-year-old steers killed by lightning yesterday. P. G. Kesterlost a stack of hay. Geo. Butterfield was knocked from his wagon by the shock of a bolt of lightning striking close by the road as he was coming to the creamery, but he soon recovered consciousness and was taken home. Several teams were knocked onto their knees when coming to town. Hurt Monitor. The Burt Cornet band intend giving a concert in the near future, assisted by Miss Bertha Hancock, elocutionist, of. Algona. Dr. Beane met with an accident one day last week that resulted in his getting two ribs broken. • He was driving along the road near W, T. Bourne's old farm when the swival on the neckyoke broke, letting the tongue down causing the team to run. At the approach to a bridge the tongue was caught, harness, singletrees and about everything came to a smash, and the doctor and buggy were thrown into the air. He landed on the soft side of the plank bridge, but a flat book in his hip pocket prevented a fractured thigh, and he escaped with two ribs broken and thinks himself lucky at that. He is around about some at this time and will soon be riding again as usual. IiuVerne News. Mrs. Hugh Smith and children arrived last Saturday for a week's visit with her parents. They go to Algona Saturday for a short visit before returning home. The picnic in Mann's grove was largely attended and agood program was given. E, C. Bowen gave a fine oration, which was appreciated by the audience. The music was in charge of the Smith male quartette of Algona and Mrs. Buchholz. The children did well in recitations, flag drill and songs. The cake walk was one of the most interesting features of the afternoon, there being 16 contestants. Master Archie Roney and May Bowen " took the cake" amid the cheers of the crowd. The Fourth at Donovan's. The Fourth of July picnic at Ed. Donovan's was a grand success in all respects. Picnic dinner was first in order, followed by a very fine program opened with music by the choir, prayer by Donovan, the reading of the declaration of Independence. Then followed the fine and appropriate speech by Mr. Swatting. It was rendered with great feeling. Mr, Charley Cook took charge of the races, euoh as the old lady's wheelbarrow race, sack race, ladies' foot race, bicycle race, little boys race, Celebrated Cierywa's Downfall, Jjurt had a patriotic time when news came (hat Cervera was captured, The Monitor says: During the day C. H. Nichols went around and collected some $8, bought 9 keg of powder and some firework^, &n4 arrangements we.remade to }ia,ys a '»blgw-OMt' r in the evening. pjtit re*obe4 Panoroft, and. to help us celebrate, some 15 or 20 of their militia came down with their guns, and the scene took on a military aspect. Cheers went up from the crowd amid the firing of anvils, the playing of the band and the display of fireworks. Rev. Schmidt and Rev. Gardner each made a short address, and Tom Sherman of Bancroft, who came down with the rest of the boys, also had a word. The Burt band played with vim and energy and by the demonstrations of the evening if Sampson and Schley and the boys at the front had been a " mouse in the corner," they would have realized that the people at home are with them in spirit and sentiment if not in person. Whlttcmore Champion. Otto Kohl was offered $30 per acre for his half section by a man from Everly, but be did not sell. Mr. Kohl paid $30 for it two or three years ago. Frank Roupe has taken the Keeley cure and will now attend to business once more. He went up to his farm near Pipestone the last of the week and all hope he will do well and keep out of temptations way. Word Is received from Edgerton, Minn., that Geo. Munch has enlisted and started for St. Paul Tuesday. George is a good boy, full of patriotism and will serve his country as valiantly as his father did In the civil war. This makes eight Whlttemore boys in the volunteer service. AI (io ii ii Hand at Goldflold. Chronicle: The Algona band came on the 8 o'clock train, discoursing the finest music at intervals throughout the day, and giving an open air concert in the evening, which was very fine. Itaucroft Register. Attorney E. H. Clarke of Algona is collecting some north end subscriptions for the plat book that has caused so much cussing In this county. The $12.60 lessons wore good ones, but not all the subscribers have profited by it. The contractors who will putupJ. A. Winlcel's new elevator are expected here to begin work today or tomorrow. Win. Stahl will have the carpenter work. Mrs. J. A. Johnson was an unfortunate victim of the deadly firecracker the night before the Fourth. She had got hold of a giant cracker the boys were saving for the morning salute, and thinking it a Roman candle lighted it and commenced waving it in the air. The explosion tore the end off her middle finger and badly shattered her whole hand. Dr. West was summoned to dress the injury, and she is getting along all right, but will have a badly scarred and weak hand. Wesley News.
