UPPER Km MOBrtSSs ALGONA, IOWA. WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY ENTERPRISE FOR WESLEY* Project for a $10,000 Flouring Milt is Already Well Under Way. Messrs. KntiK Bfos. and Way A«5 the Pi-omoters-Otlici- Comity M«t- tet-s of the Week. Wesley Is to have a big flouring mill. A week iigo Messrs. Kuna Bros, and Way started out with n mill project, their Idea being to raise $10,000 and organize a slock company for the purpose of building and opernting a flouring mill, and before night the amoiint hoc! all been taken or spoken for except a few odd shares which were reserved for farmers who wished to bo interested In the enterprise. Work is to bo begun as soon ns the frost is out of the ground, and the mill will be completed this coining summer ready for fall business. The Nevva says: Almostr any town can have some kind of n mill, a few towns can havo first class mills, but Wesley is the only town that can raise $10,000 in cash between dinner and supper to build a first class mill and have nothing but local capital interested. _ VonJon Depot Site De-bate. The Penton lycoum had a debate on where to locate the new depot. The. question was, " Resolved, That the stations on the new railway be placed seven miles apart." J. H. Davis wa.i chief disputant on the affirmative, and J. Martin on the negative. The affirmative was iissisted by Jim Butler and Dell McChesney, the negative by G. H. Salisbury and Art. Lindsey. No judges were chosen, owing to the fact that all present wore more or less interested in the location of tho town site. Many striking arguments were produced on both sides, but still we refrain from giving an opinion as to which side produced the best argument. Baucroft Keglster. A letter from J. G. Graham to M. A. Turner this week brings the unwelcome intelligence that P. J. Byrne is confined to his bed, and Mr. Graham was of the opinion that he would soon pass to the great beyond. C.

R pair of shears. Other reports were abroad, but the Cha&lpion hadn't Space to mention them all. The facts as near as can be collected are that the baby was playing; with a comb out of which several teeth were missing', and in some way got the fcnd of the comb caught in its throat. The comb was pulled out in such a way that it cut the baby'sthroat Inside and made it bleed, and Mr. Knox coming in accused the mother of letting the child play with shears. Mr. Knox caught up the child and rushed to the doctor's office, followed by the mother. This is practically all of the story, except Hint they havo separated and that she had to apply to the town for aid yesterday and ns they had not lived hero long enough to bo residents they were all pai'.kt-d into a wngon and taken to West Bend, their former home. They lived in the first building west, of the'German American bank. The baby was not seriously hurt. Whittemore Clmmplon. Mrs. A. H. Hotelling was hero last week and returned to Algona Saturday. She will spend the winter with her son, C. A. Hotelling, in Fulda, Minn. Herman Ranlzow has sold his shoe shop to John Alinemnnn, and will go on the road for a shoe house. lUti-l Monitor. Ernest Beale, who is now visiting with his uncle, G. D. Stone, will leave next Wednesday to join his mother in Riverside, Cal., where ho will make his home in the future. Geo. E. Marble will move his country store over in Emmet at once. The railroad goes two miles east of him and ho move it immediately onto the lino, and it will be moveablc property until tho town is permanently staked out. He will hi' on the ground as soon as anybody, or a little sooner. M'iss Emma Anderson, daughter of A. Anderson north of town, met with a very bud and painful accident on Wednesday evening of last week. She and her sister walked over to a party given nt Ellen Meinzer's, and accepted a ride home, On the way the buggy tipped over off of a grade, and they were all lipped out, and Emma was badly hurt. Her left arm was broken above tho wrist, and the wrist was out of joint, tho elbow of her right arm dislocated, and she sustained several cuts and bruises about her face also. In some mishaps it is a wonder how luckily a person escapes, but in this case, the wonder is how she could possibly have beeu the victim of so many injuries. Her sister Carrie also sustained a fractured hip. The two young men escaped injury, and they held to the team so that they did not run away. Gormmiln Glonncr. Mrs. K Koppen was born in Germany in 1815, and peacefully died Saturday morning aged 84 years. She has been a resident of Kossuth county for the past 14 years. She leaves a husband and three sons to mourn her departure.

WHco* Offers Some Good Suggestions About the Easiness. A Hundred Weight of Turkeys Costs No More to Knise Than n Hundred Weight of Pork. THE UPPER DBS MOINES is a great believer in poultry as the proper stock for a farm. It accordingly asked W. S. Wiluox, the poultry man, something about the business hereabouts, and he gives our readers some good ideas. His suggestions are worthy of consideration at the institute. He says: There is but, little, to offer regarding tho poultry situation; the season is about over, and as a whole has riot been one of exultation to the dealer. A low Thanksgiving market was experienced, and this being followed by a badly demoralized holiday market, hasnodoubt made the- dealer even more skeptical of the poultry business as a road to sudden wealth than over before. In fact, from my point of view, tho only hope of play, ing even for thoso who have handled the product extensively this season lies in some hidden resource that perchance may never appear to alleviate the uncertainties of thoso who trust in the unforeseen. 13vit while the markets havu not been satisfactory to the dealer, tho prices paid certainly must have boon satisfactory to the producer, and herein lies the trouble: tho dealers have too much endeavored to pay the prices that have been prevalent in former years, rather than to meet the demands of this present situation, namely, lower and safer prices. But I am sure no one cares to hear the- tales of woo ofa poultry buyer. 'Now it in hard to toll exactly the cause of low holiday markets, but it is no doubt due to too largo a supply and too little demand for poor slock, forlhe greater portion of poultry throughout tho country is not in condition to meet demands of an exacting Thanksgiving market, which wants as prime stock then as in January, and will not lake it if it is not except, at low prices. Now a word right hero about preparing poultry—and especially turkeys— for market; they must bo fat to bring highest prices. Before a bird will take on much fat it must, havo reached its maturity; when it lias reached that point, or at least nearly so, then it is ready to take on fat. I do not advise early marketing of turkeys, and this is one "reason; they should be allowed ample time in which to fully develop their frames, and another is that it requires cold weather to fatten a turkey. I do not mean to be understood that a turkey wants a cold place to roost, where a northwest gale can whistle through his tail feathers, not that. But as long as it is warm outside and your turkeys can rove all over your farm, not so much fat will accumulate. But when good cold weather sets in, and Mr. Turkey will stand on one leg on the sunny side, not of a barbed wire fence, but of a comfortable house or shed, and is given plenty to eat and drink, then will ho begin to put fat on his bones. As a rule farmers seem to think that grain fed to poultry is wasted, consequently there is no attempt to make the poultry fit for market, but it is hustled off as soon as anyone will buy it, no matter if it is but half grown, or as " poor as Job's turkey." The majority of farmers seem to think that it costs more to raise turkeys than they come to, and yet it is an established fact that a hundred weight of turkey costs no more to raise than a hundred weight of pork, while the price obtained for turkey is from 50 to 160 per cent, more than for pork. Another essential thing to consider in successful poultry raising is to keep good blooded stock. I hope to see the time, and that before many years, when farmers in this section will learn the benefits to be obtained from raising good blooded poultry. I am pleased, however, to note the large increase each year of a better quality of poultry and that the old fashioned dunghill stock is largely being run out in some sections and new stock introduced. There are yet, however, many farmers whoso stock still remains unimproved, To those people we say get aboard as soon us possible. We have taken especial notice this season of the vast difference between the common scrub stock of turkeys and the better blooded stock. One costs no more to raise than the other, yet the latter can easily be made to weigh from 50 to 70 per cent, heavier than the former. I cannot say a9 to the best breed of turkeys to raise but from personal observation I would say the bronze; by no means would I advise raising the white stock. The reports come from the markets that the meat is coarser, dryer, and not ns pleasing a flavor, and the dressed bird does not show up »s nicely when packed. In fact, last year some of the most fastidious buyers on the market refused to pay highest price for them. Do not think tbflt you can produce the best stock because you have a thoroughbred gobbler. It. is just as essential that your hens he of good blood, but to get a blooded gobbler is a good beginning, and then follow right in with some good hens. Create within yourself an interest, and turkey raising will havo tt new interest for you. Had I time and space I would like to say a few words about other kinds of po'nltrv, hut I consider thai, n, reformation in the turkey line is more essential than in any other, and so have devoted this article almost wholly to that class of fowls. • MONEY to loan at 5 percent, interest.
