A DEAL THAT SAVOES OF "SKY," Mr. Matson Buys Territory for Hog Cholera Remedy, and Now He Wants to Let Go. The Buffalo Center Tribune tells the following familiar tale: On Sept. 6 a smooth tongued individual drove up to Mr. Joseph Matson's farm house in ' Lincoln township and wanted to make him the distributing agent for a hog cholera medicine, and tried to sell him a large quantity of the stuff. Mr. Mat- eon refused to buy, and the smooth individual then agreed to ship a consignment of the stu'ff to Mr, Matson, and he could pay for jnst what he disposed of, allowing him an enormous commission on what he sold. To this Mr. Matson agreed,'and signed his name to what he supposed to be' an agreement of this kind, but it now transpires that the smooth individual has Mr. Matson's signature to a note for $115 which he is offering for sale. Mr. Matson has a warning against the purchase in this issue. The warning is against the purchase of a certain promissory note for $116 in favor of of J. L, Button, and the whole transaction has that pale, sky- blue cast which has shaded so many transactions with a like sequel in the past. ^ Wlilttemore Champion. The youngest child of John Munch, was about five months old, died last Saturday after a long siege of suffering. From the St. Paul papers we learn that J. O, Seattle, brother of J. E., has been nominated for the office of register of deeds in Ramsey county by both democrats and populists. Moe Bros, bought a cow of Mrs, Ryan and went to Schraitt's pasture to get her. They picked out a cow which answered the description and killed her, but which afterward proved to be Mark Prey's milch cow which cost him $40, Mark offers to take just what be paid for her, but Moe Bros, wish to give less. The case may haye to be settled in court. .. work about half way between Hayfleld and Crystal Lake, and are working either way, and have several miles graded. Crystal Lake is located on Ellsworth's land, and banks, stores and lumber yards have already located there. The exact location of the depot in Buffalo seems to be unsettled as yet. As near as can be learned the right of way this side of Crystal Lake has been bargained for on contract only, and the railroad people have the right to throw- up any or all of them. This leaves them advantages that they will no doubt use in settling the depot site to suit their wishes. Rumors are in the air that the road is to proceed still farther west than Buffalo this fall, but nothing definite is known. IjuVeriie News. Butfcerraaker Minkler reports that the creamery paid 171 during September for butter fat. The flow of milk has fallen off considerably but the quality has increased, and butter fat has not fallen off one-third from the heaviest run. R. V. Scott returned home today from his New York visit. He reports a good trip. And we must add that all who have business at the St. L. depot were happier to see R. V.'s smilling face than anyone else they could think of. Wesley Reporter. Arthur Ward has husked some of his corn already, and he says it is turning out 70 bushels to the acre. That's pretty good for a starter. Contrary to all reports Dr. Spencer is at Sexton once again. During his absence he visited the Omaha exposition and saw everything that was to be seen, taking in the midway, frontway, back way apd everyway. He comes back greatly invigorated by the trip, and will be pleased to have all the people call at the drug store and see hqw cheap he is selling wall paper, paints and oils. S\ye» ptt y Heraia. H. M.

While at Algona trying to locate him last Monday, Mr. Curren found there five other fathers pn the same wieslon, looking after runaway sons. Messrs.

New Store at Wesley. WESLEY, Oct. 11.—Dr. McCoy of Al gona was a Wesley caller, Monday. The beautiful shower we had Sunday night refreshed the pastures and mad the lawns look green and fresh. Farmers are busy marketing their grain. The elevator men are busy a the rate of about 16 hours a day hand ling it. Our new lumber dealer, Mr. Sylvest er, is busy arranging the ground fot his sheds. He will put up a shed 65x80, 20 foot posts. He is looking foi a large invoice of lumber he has ordered. Our soldier boys started for Des Moines Monday. Among them were Ira Adams, Con Breen, James Tanner, and Lon Green of Wesley. The boys were feeling good and enjoyed themselves while home. It makes but little difference to them whether they are mustered out or sent to Cuba, as they are ready for anything Uncle Sam wants them for. We are to have another general store. Estaque & Co. of Lake City have fitted up the store room east of the state bank and will put in a stock of general merchandise. Mr. Estaque and family are here and their household goods arrived yesterday. They will occupy part of the central house for the present until they can find a more suitable location to live.

Farr of Algona was here Sunday visiting the different Sunday schools arranging for a Sunday school convention, which will take place about Nov. 13, Mike Alt had a public sale Monday. He sold off all of his property and will move back to Wisconsin. He expects to leave in a few weeks. The Omalia Exposition. When the World's Fair at Chicago ceased to exist it was supposed that wo should never look upon its like again. However, the Trans-Mississippi Exposition at Omaha has effectively reproduced in similarity all of the buildings which made the White Citv so attractive in 1893. It does not now take weeks to wander through grounds and structures and then be compelled to go away with a jumble of ideas, for the Omaha Exposition people have profited by past experience, and have so improved the arrangement of exhibits that no more than two or three days' time need be consumed in admiration and inspection of the marvelous resources of the west, collected together in the chief city of Nebraska. Even the new Midway is a reproduction of the far-famed Street of All Nations of 1893, with many improvements upon the original. The electric lighting of the buildings, -grounds and lagoon at night makes a scene of enchanting beauty, alone worth traveling a thousand miles to see. The means of communication between the city and the grounds are ample, and the distance to be traversed is short. The ways of reaching Omaha are innumerable, but chief among them is the direct Chicago and Omaha shorfline of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway, with its electric-lighted, vestibuled trains. Dining car service en route. Excursion tickets are on sale at every coupon ticket office in the United States over the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway through northern Illinois and central Iowa, or call on the agent for further information. 28tS Wants 8U,OUO Circulation.
