WESLEY, Aug. 15—A terrible accident occurred two miles east of Wesley last Thursday, which resulted in the death of Mrs, J. B. Baldwin, formerly of Rockford, 111. She and her husband were traveling with a team from Illinois to somewhere near Sanborn, Iowa, where she has a sister living, and being short of money he got a chance to work in a hay camp east of here and concluded he would stop, and had wofrked about two weeks, living in a tent during that time. Last Thursday when Mrs. Baldwin was preparing dinner, the grass in the tent caught fire and before she noticed it her skirts were on fire, and in her efforts to put the fire out her hands were burned until the finger nails came off, her clothes were entirely consumed, and her body so badly burned that she died inside of 24 hours She left to mourn her untimely death three little children, the youngest but nine months old. The remains were sent back to Rockford, 111., Friday evening, accompanied by the family, to bo buried there. The Algona district conference o the Methodist church will be held in Wesley Aug. 22-23.

Welt Miller came oyer from Whitte more Saturday and stayed over Sunday Welt is thinking of running for count, attorney if he can get the nomination on the republican ticket at the coming county convention. Our relations with him have been of a very genial nature during the three years and over he has lived in Wesley and his many friends here would be pleased to see him succeed in his effort to secure the office. Mart Weaver of Algona was here last week looking over the political field with the auditor's office in view. He shook hands with us all and renewed old acquaintance. We have known Mart for a long time, and always found him a pleasant little fellow to meet, and the experience he has had as assistant in the auditor's office ought to fit him by this time to be capable to fill the first place, and we hope he may get the nomination. What the people of the county want are competent men to fill the offices and we believe Mart is fully up to the standard. Mr. E. P. Bacon and Walter Thomas came over from Renwick Saturday, returning Monday. John Shalble of Whittemore was here over Sunday, the gueat of Dr. J. E. Hill and family. Mrs. P. M.

Jacob Gorman's hired man, who lives two miles south of Sexton, was the victim in a case of robbery last Friday.

It was not ong until he had got more than was good for his system, and went to sleep, 'his was what the men wanted, and hey took him to a grove near the road, where they searched him.
