Wednesday afternoon us the onst bound freight from Tltonka was pulling along like any old thing out of breath while crossing- George Frank's farm the track made a lurch on the snow and precipitated three cars of corn to the ground.

Evidently there's a nigger in the fence somewhere. His daughter is at home and he says she is all right. Tho Tjiuicl BiiHliicBH Killed Her. Mrs. Albert Kopesky, aged 58 years, passed to the invisible beyond at 0 o'clock last Saturday morning and was buried in St. Benedict's cemetery on Monday. The Wesley Reporter says Mrs. Kopesky had been ailing for some time, but those immediately acquainted with her say her illness and death are largely clue to worrying over the Russ action to deprive them of their farm, which they purchased of C, L. Lund and paid for. The funeral was one of the largest ever held in this section of country, and was attended out of respect to the aged and bereaved husband and as a mark of their sympathy in the trouble which has come to the family through the Lund deal.

The Sac Sun says: All of the Northwestern surveyors but S. J. Owen, whose arm was broken a few weeks ago, have left Sac City, having been summoned elsewhere. Some went last week and others last Monday. It is evident that no further surveying on the proposed Sac City and Algona extension is contemplated soon. The Sun adds: As yet no company has been organ teed by the Northwestern officials to enter upon the construction of the proposed Sac City and Algona extension. This fact leaves reason to doubt whether the company has decided to build the line. The lines from Wall Lake to Denison and from Mondarain to a connection with the road passing through Wall Lake are in charge of the Boyer Valley railroad company. A new company, the Minnesona and Iowa, has been incorporated to build the proposed line from Burt in Kossuth county to Sanborn, Minn., and is acquiring right-of-way, -f- -i- -s- Tho Ford Dodge Messenger says there were several reasons suggested for the failure of the wolf hunt. Probably the most rational one was made by Mr. Dolliyer. "The mistake of the whole plan," he said, " was the fact that the town force was organized with the left wing resting on the Carpenter farm and the right wing at Koll's brewery and they could not move the right wing." The Messenger adds: There was one genuine wolf seen, as was vouched for by several responsible jeeple, among them Congressman Deliver. Mr. Dolliver was interviewed on the subject and gave a very graphic description of the appearance and disappearance of the wolf. With some other friends they were dining at the Newdeck farm, when suddenly someone came rushing in and yelled wildly. "They're coming, the wolves are coming." The entire family rushed out, Mr. Dolliver not forgetting his pail containing bait, and there sure enough was a wolf galloping along a quarter of a mile away pursued by dogs. He passed a haystack from behind which a hunter stepped and fired point blank at the wolf. Mr. Wolf immediately redoubled his speed in an opposite direction and was seen no more. -h -H -T- Eagle Grove is over-run with lodges and the Times makes a suggestion all the ladies at least will endorse: It does really seem as if the council should pass an ordinance forbidding the institution of any more lodges in Eagle Grove. We are lodge-ridden to death. Some of the lodges are good, others are bad, and some are neither. The psftfle desire of a man and woman to "belong" to something is proving a rjoh find for "organizers" and in nine pases out oj too, after you have helped line the packets of an *' organizer" who ought to be out working for a living, you find the lodge is of no practical, eaeiajj or m,9ral beneflt tp ypu. L,e.t'e E. F. PQ§IQATE, when the town has so many now that it is badly overstocked. -J- -!- 4- Nevada is threatened with a curfew ordinance which moves the Roland Record to remark: Oh, merciful heavensl What next? But this la just like sleepy old Nevada.. After nil the live towns in the country have taken up With the popular fad and have allowed it to decline into the oblivion from whence it came, Nevada awakes from her lethargy and adopts it. Some Ames man will drop in there some day and tell them war is over and they will have a peace jubilee. The broad side of a No. 12 carpet slipper or a keen hickory sprout applied to that part of a bov's anatomy most used in sitting down will do more toward keeping a boy off the streets nights than all the curfew ordinances ever framed. -4- -f- + The Armstrong Pilot has an item about the Dunlap Bros., former residents of Ledyard, vvho made so much money on Kossuth county real estate, are now operating a bank in Oklahoma. In a letter to Charles Larrabee they say the revolver is always kept handy, the bank closed at 3 p. m., sufficient cash for the day received each morning and not over $600 kept over night. The. danger of being robbed is very great, but they are willing to risk it for the, interest received on money invested. A money loaner in Oklahoma would not talk to a man vvho offered only two per cent, a month. 4- 4- •+• Pocahontas is confident of the now Northwestern line. A reporter in the Capital says: The Northwestern company has quit work on the Sac City and Algona line, having sent all the engineers lo work on projects doomed of moro immediate importance.' While nothing definite can be learned from the company, the people along this lino feel fully satisfied that the company will buiid this line during the coming season. The lino runs through one of the richest farming sections in the state of Iowa, besides giving the North western one of the shortest linos botwoan Omaha and St. Paul. And now that the Rock Island has taken a hand in the game the Northwestern will not be slow in looking after its own interests.

Johnson in his jonrnal mentions the interesting fact that be had on a certain day had "palfrey for dinner.' Now these three words have oansed not a little tronbJe to the critics, and for this reason, that they know not what palfrey really is. It has been suggested that palfvay is a clerical error made by the doctor himself for pastry, but the doctor wrote so legibly, and there is so mnoh difference between the words palfrey and pnstry that this position is not at all tenable. Palfrey is defined in Johnson's celebrated dictionary as "a small horse fit for ladies," and some have thought that the doctor (whose feats as a trencherman were notorious) may have broken A record on the day in question and disposed of a small horse. All these and other conjectures are wrong, and we will proceed to give the correct explanation. The word palfrey (sometimes pamfrey by the interchange of 1 and m) is still in use amoug the rustics of Scotland and the north of Ireland, and means young cabbages when they first come to table in the spring. Such cabbages have not begun to "oJose" or become solid in the center. They are generally spoken of as "early pamfrey" and are considered a luxury. Dr. Johnson probably picked up the word from his friend Boswell or from some other Scotch acquaintance.'— Notes and Queries. Sir Colin Campbell. Russian horsemen were coming on fast, and a grim silence fell on the highlanders. Then, as the beat of the hostile troops sounded deeper and louder, a curious quiver ran down the long two deep lino of the Ninety-third. The men were eager to run forward and charge. "Ninety-third, Ninety-third I" rang out tho fierce voice of Sir Colin Campbell. "D—n all that eagerness I" He had previously ridden down the line and told his soldiers: "Remember, there is no retreat from here, men. Yon must die where you stand." And from the kilted privates came the cheerful answer, "Aye, aye, Sir Colin; we'll do that!" The Russians were now within range, and the fire of the highlanders rang out sudden and sharp. A few horses and men came tumbling down, and the Russian cavalry wheeled instantly to the left, threatening the right fiauk of the highlauders. Campbell, a cool and keen soldier, saw tho skill of this movement. "Shadwell," he said, turning to his aid-de-camp, "that man understands his business." So, too, did Campbell, who instantly deflected his line so as to protect his right, and met the advance with a destructive volley, before which the Russian horsemen at once fell back.—Comhill Magazine. Kulncd by MuleH. M. P. Le Grand, an Alabama farmer, says «-hat many negroes in the south are ruined by mules, and he thinks he has proved it. He owns a great deal of farm land, which he rents to negroes on condition that they shall do their work with an ox instead of n mule. As a result, all his tenants are prosperous and pay their rent promptly. The ox, he explains, is entirely capable in all the requirements of the cotton patch, but he has his limitations, and his colored master does not think of mounting him and riding off on useless errands or pleasure trips. As the negro cannot ride to distant churches, cake walks or "hoe downs, "and as ho will not walk, he goes to bed and is rested and ready for labor in the morning. So far as the inference from this experiment goes, the negro, plus a mule, is a shiftless and unreliable citizen, but eliminate the mule and substitute an ox, and he becomes regular in his habits, businesslike and prosperous.—New York Tribune. Effect of Iiluie on the System. A medical scientist is authority for the statement that children and old people especially suffer from a lack of lime in the system. Persons who habitually drink soft water, while they may enjoy immunity from certain of the ills of life, expose themselves to others perhaps quite as much to be avoided. Hard water helps the teeth and the bones by furnishing lime, which is necessary to health, growth and development. Old persons who drink but little lose their teeth more quickly than those who take a reasonable amount of drinking water. Lime, or food products in which it abounds, should be a part of the regular supply furnished to the system. One of the most valuable vegetables for this purpose is the yellow turnip or ruta baga, which should be given to growing children at least once a week. Properly prepared, it is very relishable and its food value has never been appreciated. She Thought She Did. He—Do you love me well enough to become my wife? She—I think I do, but I must have all the money I want, and I must always have my own way, and go when and where I want to, and come home when I ple.v«,i, and stay away when 1 please. Yes, I think I really do love you well enough to marry you.—Boston Transcript. Talking to an Invalid, A physician, in an article illustrating the evil custom of talking to an invalid about his pains, says that once he requested a mother to mark a stroke upon a paper each time that she asked R sick daughter how she was. The next day to her astonishment she made 109 strokes. A three months' visit away from home was prescribed. The surface of the sea is estimated at 160,000,OOP square miles, taking the wfeole surface of the globe at 107,000,000, and, its greatest depth supposedly eqwale the height of the highest mountain, on four miles.
