THE UPMJft BES MOINEB: ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10, 1898. THE NEWS OF THE COUNTY f N.TOBIES IN A WESLEY AOOIDENT General ltottnd*up of fitappen- ihgs and Personal Mention for Seven Days. WESLEY, Aug. 8— While Mrs. A. linerfail and her daughter wore driving home from town Thursday moruing their horse became frightened about a tulle and a half south of town and ran away, throwing Mrs. Imerfall and her daughter out of the buggy. The daughter escaped with slight injury, while her mother was badly hurt about her head and face and was unconscious for some time. Dr. Hill was called and dressed her wounds, and left her feeling as comfortable as could be expected. During the thunder storm last Friday evening lightning struck a oottonwood tree in Mr. Brewster's grove three miles west of town. The tree stood about 20 feet from the house. Some of the splinters were thrown with such force against the side of the house as to tear several pieces of the siding off. Mrs. Brewster was up stairs at the time and felt the effect of the shock very much in one of her feet. The rest of the family escaped without any very serious effects. C. H. Peterson, the editor of the Wesley News, took a flying trip to Chicago Thursday, arriving home this morning. C. E. Pluramer and family arrived home last week from their month's visit in the east. He left his father feeling some bettor but with little hope of his recovery, as he is an old man. Dr. Walter's brother, who is in the commission business in Chicago, is here visiting- the doctor for a few days. Mrs. Suttle of Kansas City is here visiting her father, Rev. S. L. Eastman. She will remain here during the summer. _ Swen. city Herald. . Geo H. Barber came down from Fairmont Saturday to pack up his household goods, preparatory to moving to South Dakota, where he has secured a position with some grain company to manage an elevator. He had just returned safely from England with his family. The city council met in regular session Tuesday evening. It is proposed to erect a city jail, for an emergency, and to do something to give the town some protection against fire. The proposition is to put in two 200-barrel cisterns, with pipes so that they can be filled from the town well, and to secure a hand engine and hose. The total cost will be about $300, and the. members would probably be glad to be encouraged in the move that they may know it would prove satisfactory. The school election In the independent district last Saturday was attended by 47 electors. The caucus ticket, put up the night before, was elected with but little opposition. S. P. Barr was given the long term; D. Bartholomew and Verne S. Ellis the middle term; and J. Packman and R. V. Frakes the short term. The directors met Monday evening and organized by selecting J. Packman for president and John E. Peterson for secretary. Wesley News. David Archibald of Algona came Monday morning and will run the en. gine for L. E. Sanford's thresher this season. A. Hutchison of Algona came over Monday morning to investigate the corners of his farm, several parties interested having some dispute as to where their lines run. W. H. Hodges received the sad intelligence Monday morning by telegraph that his son-in-law atOgden, Utah, had committed suicide Sunday. Mr. Hodges left for there Tuesday morning. Dr. Walters has had good cause to wear that broad smile on his countenance' the past week. Early Friday morning we saw a card over a box of cigars in Anderson's drug store, bearing this Inscription: "Boy at Doc. Walters this morning." Mother and baby are doing well. Burt Monitor, E. P, Keith and wife left Tuesday for a visit in Dakota. Ernest Bacon left yesterday for a few days' stay in different parts of Illinois. N. H. Connor was at Ledyard last week and rented a house preparatory to moving within about two weeks. Miss Marie Mill is came home last week from Cedar Falls, where she has been taking a course of primary work. G. S. Angus hitched his horse to the sidewalk Monday. The horse lay down while hitched to the buggy, broke one of the thills, which stuck into the horses side, causing a bad but not serious wound. Some pilferers entered Max Doue's house the day of the circus at Algona, ransacked the house, turning eyery- tbing topsy-turvy, and carried away two gold watches, a gold pen, and some clothing. No clew has been obtained as to who the parties were. Seven miles west of Burt while Vet MoChesney was running an engine, threshing for Conrad Rahn, while repairing some part of the engine, slipped and fell on the whistle, breaking it off. His pants leg caught in the gearing and was pulled off. There was a pressure of 150 of steam, which scalded his leg to a blister. _ Bancroft Register. M- J.

Chapln and Mies Tena Wallace Begin Married Life under Favorable Auspices. A pleasant company of relatives and immediate friends gathered at the Wallace home last Wednesday evening to witness the marriage or Miss Tena Wallace and A. R. Chapin. It was a sweet pea wedding, the prevailing decoration being this seasonable flower. The bride and groom appeared to the strains of the wedding march played by Miss Kate Smith and Mrs. Maud Jones, attended by Miss Nell Wallace as maid of honor, Miss Kate Lantry as brides' maid, and M. P. Haggard as groomsman. The ring ceremony was used and Rev. Stiles officiated. During the ceremony Miss Smith and Mrs. Jones played the intermezzo from the Ave Maria. Hearty congratulations followed, and then light refreshments were served by the Shakespeare club of which the bride has been and is a member, the others being Misses Kal.e Lantry, Maggie Haggard, Mabel and Ruby Smith, and Nell Taylor; Mrs. C. T. Chubb, Al. Falkenhainer, and Guy Taylor. A feature of the wedding was the veil worn by the bride, the same veil that has been worn by Mrs. Chubb, Falkenhainer and Taylor, a veil bought by the Shakespeare club for its members. The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Wallace, and has grown up in and near Algona. As a teacher she has ranked among the first, being very successful in her work in the Algona schools. She is a young woman of talent and accomplishments. Mr. Chapin is the son also of old settlers, Mr. and Mrs. M. B. Chapin, and has grown to manhood in and near Algona. He has already proved himself a successful business man, and is popular with his associates, None but bright prospects are ahead of this worthy couple, and the best wishes of the community go with them to their new home. Those present for the wedding from abroad were Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Chapin from Austin, Minn., S. B. Reed and daughter Alice from Des Moines, Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Stephan from Waltham, Minn., Miss Tena Frazer from Rochester, N. Y., Geo. Horton from Chicago. Mrs. L. M. Horton came from Chicago to be present. JUST 30 YEABS AGO. The congressional convention of the Sixth district was held at Montana July 15, 1868. Montana is now Boone. There was one informal ballot and 70 formal ballots, at the end of which Chas, Pomeroy of Fort Dodge was nominated. Col. John Scott of Nevada was an aspirant and visited Algona in his canvass. The delegates from Kossuth were Ambrose A. Call, J. H. Warren, andKinsey Carlon; alternates, J. R. Armstrong, G. M. Parsons, and Orange Minkler. From THE UPPER DES MOINES we judge that Kossuth stood by Scott. H- -»-•*• The delegates to the state convention were Lewis H. Smith and J. L. Paine; alternates, Jason Dunton and John Reed. The convention met at Des Moines July 7, and one of its first duties was to elect a delegate at large to the national convention, S. H. Taftof Humboldt being selected from the Sixth. Gen. Ed. Wright, so long custodian of the new capitol at Des Moines, was named for secretary of state, and C. C. Carpenter was named for registrar of the state land office. It was in 1868 that U. S. Grant ran for president the first time. The impeachment trial of Andrew Johnson was concluded in May, the vote of Senator Grimes of Iowa saving the president. THE UPPER DES MOINES said rimes had better died of his paralytic stroke, and added "every republican senator who voted against impeachment may as well hunt up the remains of what was once James Buchanan and all sink down into oblivion together." -f- -f- -f- The State Register, on the authority of Smith of Dickinson, stated that there ras not r : lawyer in Dickinson, Emmet, ~!lay, P ,10 Alto, Buena Vista, Pocahon- as, Sad, Calhoun, Humboldt and Kossuth, and that an outsider would have be imported to get a circuit judge.

" What lovely letters I receive from May Hopkins," said one young lady to anoth- r in our hearing, and while we are not acquainted with the individual referred to, yet this remark gives us a favorable opin- on of her, which we likewise have of all who master the art of letter writing, for uch persons seldom fail to win their way o social and business prominence. Parents, give your boys and girls a hauce. Buy each one of them, who is ten ears old and over, a scholarship in some oUool of correspondence where trained eacuei'B conduct a practical and instructive ad exceedingly interesting course of so- cial 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 $2.40 per year, payable sixty cents quarterly in advance, or $2.00 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.

WOMEN used YY to think "female diseases " could only be treated after "loc a 1 examinations" by physicians. Dread of such treatment kept thousands of modest women silent about their suffering. Theln- troductton of Wine of Cardut has now demonstrated that nine-tenths of all the cases of menstrual disorders do not require a physician's attention at all. The simple, pure taken In the privacy of a woman's own home Insures quick relief and speedy cure. Women need not hesitate now. Wine of Cardul requires no humiliating examinations for its adoption. It cures any disease that comes under the head of "female troubles"—disordered menses, falling of the womb, "whites, "change of life. It makes women beautiful by making them well.
