There will be about 200 sportsmen present and dogs galore. Whittemore Champion. The Sanitary Commission society supper at West Bend which was" announced in these columns made a net profit of $42.19 which will be used for the benefit of our boys at the front. , John Munch returned from St. Paul the last of the week and his mother remained until Monday. George was feeling first rate and expected to go to San Francisco soon. He has been promoted to the rank of corporal. Attorney McEnroe and family moved to Algona Saturday, where they will reside until a more favorable location can be found. He is talking some of going to Denver or Lake. Wesley News. Mr. Jenson of German Valley, lost a horse by lightning Tuesday morning. The storm overtook him while on the way to the creamery and he put his team in Henry Palhen's barn. After the storm was over he went to the barn intending to hitch up, but found one of tho horses had been struck in the head and the brains were scattered in every direction. i Another home south of Wesley was made sad last Friday morning at four o'clock at which time Mrs, Grouse passed from this world into the next. She was born in Mitchell county in 1862 and died at the age of 36 years. She was the mother of eight children, six of whom survive her, two boys and four girls. The funeral sermon was preached in Irvington at which place the body was interred. The largo procession of 26 teams followed the remains to the grave. The father and children and other relatives have the sympathy of the community. THE UPPER MB MOlMflBi ALGOKA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 3, 1898. many, and C. B.

A VICTIM OF THE FEVER, THE FIRST DEATH IN COMPANY P, Edgar Winkel is Brought Home a Corpse—Funeral on Monday- Sketch of His Life. Lodynrrt Leader. Geo. C. Call was up from Algona Friday looking after some improvements he is having made on some of his north Kossuth farmes. The section men from ihis place went down near Algona Monday, to assist in fixing up the track that had slid out of place around a curve. Burt Monitor. Thayer Lumber has bought the But'.. terfield property, and also the corner lots just one block west from Lars Sorenson's. He will build a house upon these lots right away, and become resident of Burt. We live in that neighborhood ourselves and we can assure Mr. Lumber he is getting among good people. Mrs. Lumber is a sister to Mrs. S. V. R. Mann. Invitations are out for the marriage of Wilbert O. Hodgson to Miss Clara Mathews. The interesting event is to take place at the T. A. Butterfield home next Wednesday evening. The occasion will unite a most worthy couple to which the Burt people have only been waiting to extend the usual evidences of approval. A Poor RacliiK Town. Britt News: The races at Algona last week were first class, and the attendance was very poor. It is safe to say that at least three times as many people would have patronized a meet held at either Wesley or Britt. As a sporting town Algona is certainly not a success. Wesley Reporter. Last Monday Joe Kernan got a particle of straw in his left eye and was unable to get it out. He went to an Algona doctor and had the obstruction removed and was able to see the elephant on Tuesday. _ At 9 o'clock Wednesday evening at Hose cottage, Rev. S. L. Eastman united Mr. Alfred H. Presnell and Miss Florence S. Atkinson in the holy bpnds of matrimony. Mr. and Mrs. Presnell have each resided here from infancy, and are well known to nearly everybody. The groom being our present efficient deputy postmaster, and the youngest son of Thos. Presnell, while the bride is the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Atkinson. Fresbyterlnna Meet. There was a meeting of the Presbyterian pastors of the county at Burt last evening, The following program was given: Hymn; reading of scripture, Rev. D. Williams of Bancroft; prayer; Rev, Gardner; hymn; Loyalty to Truth, Rev. A. C. Kruse of Germania; Loyalty to the Bible, Rev. H. M. Pressly of Burt; anthem by choir; Loyalty to Our Country, Rev. Olleran- shaw of Algonn; Loyalty to Christ, Rev. J. M. Wilson of Armstrong; benediction, Rev. D. Williams. Gcrmniiln Standard. Albert Myers started his thresher Wednesday. Grain turns out pretty well—32 pounds of oats to a bushel measure. A patriotic young lady at Armstrong when the war broke out decorated her room with a sword and musket. One of the young men of the' town, who knows whereof he speaks, says that this particular young lady always did like to have arms around her. A good many girls are possessed with this same kind of piilriotism. Good for the girls. Wesley News Notes. WESLEY, Aug. 2—Our farming community is about through with their harvesting and some are getting ready to thrash. H. D. Hodges has sold his hardware store to W. T. Hall of Germania, who will take possession this week, or- us soon as the invoice can be taken. Mrs. Ann McPherson, who has been suffering with gangreen in one of her feet, is growing worse. Her friends have no hope of her recovery. H. D. Hodges received a message Sunday morning stating that his son- in-law, who resided in Ogden, Utah, had died, and for him to come at once. He took the train this morning for the above named place. Rev. Pybus of Corwith filled the pulpit for Rev. Piummer Sunday morning, and Rev. Smith of Greeley, Iowa, member of the Upper Iowa conference, who was stopping over Sunday here, preached for us in the evening. Rev. Piummer is expected home this week. WEEOK AT EAGLE GKOVE. High Wind Blew Some Freight Oars From the Switch to the Main Track—A Bad Smash-up. Chas. Shaffer, a North western engineer who has often run through to Elmore, was killed at Eagle Groye last Wednesday. He was bringing in the passenger train from the west at 10:40 in the evening, the train the 8 o'clock train from Algona connects with, when he came suddenly on two or three freight cars on the main track. How they were there is the question. It is thought the high wind took them off the switch. He was coming at a forty mile-an-hour rate and could not stop. He yelled to the fireman to jump, but it was too late. When the collision came the engine raised up in the air and dropped to the south of the track, and lay pointed away from the track. The tank went on still further about 40 feet and fell to one side. The front end of the baggage car was smashed in and the front trucks were knocked off. The rest of the train was not injured, but occupants were badly shaken up and thrown. Shaffer was caught, in the debris and held against the boiler head In the fall the steam guage broke off and the boiling water and steam com- Swea City Herald.

He was not pinned down tightly, but for a few seconds was unable to move, it not being possible to see a way out. The fireman remembers flying through the air and landing on the baggage car. He is not seriously injured. He was taken home and cared for. Mr. Shaffer lived until about 2 o'clock, and then quietly drew a long breath and was dead. For the last half hour of his life he was unconscious, and the awfully bruised and burned body was graciously insensible to pain. MUST THE PANE BACKS GO? County Hard bles and Cane Hacks, When Secretary Phil Fowler of the State Agricultural Society sent out his letter to county and district fair associations, including the opinion of the attorney general that cane racks, striking machines and baby racks were all gambling devices within the meaning of the law, and fair association! permitting them on their grounds will not be able to get the $200 state subsidy he including the following questions: About how much will it affect your finances if these games are not permitted? In your opinion will the rejection of all the games named above and similar games give the fairs abigherstanding? Will be pleased to'.hear from you at once. la reply he is receiving some interesting letters. Many fair associations intimate that they will continue to allow these games on the ground9 and not ask the etate for the subsidy, figur- ipg that their income from the privilege will be greater than the state io- come. Others will give up the games. They a 1 complain that the games are perfectly ionooeut and their abolition Wees Wapy people tp stay ftway from the r The serious illness of Edgar Winkel at Camp Thomas, noted last week, resulted in death. The remains were brought from Atlanta, Ga., Monday morning and Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock at the little chapel in the cemetery Bev. Ollieranshaw spoke most fittingly to a gathering that filled building and grounds of the splendid life that had gone out. Business houses were closed, and from all the neighboring country people came in to pay a farewell tribute to Algona's soldier dead. It was a suggestive and solemn moment as the gray haired and bent veterans of 1866, reading the ritual of their order, consigned to the dust the body of this young school boy. Past and present seemed close together as the tears of men whose memories were back in the hospitals of nearly 40 years ago, fell with the tears of school mates, who standing by his open grave, could think only of the 40 years that might have come. The news of Edgar's death came Saturday. Ho died at Fort McPherson Friday morning last at 4:15 o'clock. He was taken to the hospital there, about 140 miles southeast of Camp Thomas, instead of to Covington as at first reported, the Saturday preceeding. His mother and brother hud gone to Chickamauga, and arrived just after he had been removed. They followed at once and were with him Monday morning, and during the next four days they watched him constantly. After death the remains were embalmed and brought to Chicago, arriving Saturday evening. The superintendent of the Northwestern at Ames offered an engine to bring him home Sunday, but owing to the careless work of the embalmers a day had to be spent in Chicago. As nearly as can be learned the fever began about the 20th. Edgar tented with Walter Tellier, Will Salisbury, Clarence Yetter, L. A. Tilotson and others. The boys did not consider him seriously sick at first. He was taken to the division hospital, however, two weeks ago today, and Mrs. Blackford, who was with her son, telegraphed the family that he was very sick. The Leiter hospital was full and Lieut. Randall telegraphed to ask Congressman Dolliver to use his influence to get Edgar in. Mr. Dolliver telegraphed the surgeon general at Washington at once and got answer that Edgar would be cared for. This was Saturday, 10 days ago, the day Mrs. Winkle started. All the care that could be given in the crowded hospitals was given, but at best it was poor enough, and while Edgar was a stout vigorous boy, his system was not fortified against the ravages of the fever. He knew his mother as soon as he saw her. His brother he did not fully recognize until the next day. He was delirious by spells and very restless, and toward the last had symptoms of spinal meningetis. An hour before death he sank into a stupor, and passed away peacefully as in sleep. Edgar James Winkel was born in Algona Sept. 24, 1879. As a boy and young man he was popular with everybody. His disposition fitted him to enjoy life. He was especially popular with his school mates, belonging to the class which would have graduated last June but for the extension of the course of study. Prof. Spencer, in a letter of condolence to the bereaved parents, wrote, "I wish to express my sympathy to you in your deep sorrow. All who knew your son admired his manly qualities. Edgar was one of the favorites at school, and I know the other teachers share my feelings. Miss Coate told me when I first came that he was one upon whom we could depend. He was always an obliging pupil, a good student and a kind friend. You and his mother can take much comfort over the upright, conscientious life that he led." No sadder sight has been witnessed in Algona than the unrestrained grief of his class mates as they marched by his open grave, He joined Company Fonly a few months before war broke out. When the call for the national guards to Volunteer came he was anxious to go. He has paid for his devotion with his life. The little mound that marks his final resting place is the first of a new generation of soldier dead, that will be remembered with tears and flowers on each succeeding memorial day. May it be the only one, will be the anxious wish of all who know the boys of Company F. Prom His Lieutenant. CAMP THOMAS, Chiekamauga Park, Ga., July 30.—Word comes tiiis morning through the papers of the death at 4:15 yesterday morning of Private Edgar J. Winkel of our company. He died in the general hospital at Fort McPherson, Ga., of typhoid fever after a sickness of but a short time. Memorial services will be held tomorrow morning. He first complained of feeling bad on July 15 and was made to go into the company hospital on that day much against his desires. He was not thought very sick by the doctor until July 21, when he was taken to the division hospital. On July 20 his folks were advised to come down and Monday Mrs. J. B. Winkel, his mother and Mike Winkel, his brother, arrived from Algona. The morning before they came he was taken to the general government hospital at Fort MoPher- son, about a mile out >of Atlanta, HJs mother and brother went to him there In its ten years of existence Company F has had but one death prior to this and a gloom is past over the spirits of the men here which will not soon be banished. Edgar was a good soldier, a kind and faithful comrade, and one of the best friends many of ua ever had. lop tender hearted himself he was always considerate of the feelings of others «wd if any of us Algoim boys ever wanted a confidant we always found E sympathetic and helping Mend lot JM#r.,WJnfcfl. He enlisted in was mustered into the United States service with the company on May 25. At the time of his enlistment he was in the highest class in the high school and taking the Latin course. He was a good scholar and much thought of by bis teachers. He was only 18 years old at the time of his death and was one of the youngest men in the company. Company F wishes to extend their heartfelt sympathy to the relatives and friends of our'dear comrade whom He has seen fit to call away in this His war. And when our "taps" are blown and we are awakened by the other " reveille" then we shall again meet our dear old comrade at the grand "roll call." J AY F.. RANDALL. TO CLOSE THE LIGHT PLANT DEAL.
