As soon as he is able he expects to go to New Orleans. Several of the schools in Lotts Creek have boon closed on account of the measles. A Chicken Story. Champion: Hero is a truthful story wblch our reporter picked up the other day. W. C. Stamer of Fenton told us that Monday morning while loading up some corn from his crib he found a live chicken buried under the corn which must have been there since the first of November when the crib was filled. The fowl was somewhat deformed from lying so long in one position, but was really alive and had eaten all the corn off from 12 ears of corn within reach of its bill. This story is vouched for by Mr. Stamer and we believe it to be true. Swea City Herald. Mr. and Mrs. W. li. Peet returned to Swea City on Tuesday evening and will soon be relocated in the rooms on the second floor of their own building. Their friends are glad to welcome them. C. A. Mollnder was crossing the grade east of M. Garrison's, west of town, Monday when his buggy slipped to one side and the team jumped off the grade. For a second the horses, buggy, milk cans and Charlie were mixed up until it would have been hard to have told who was who, but he held onto the lines and soon found himself out of the mess, and the team gave up. His buggy was broken badly, the milk nearly all spilled, but hie head was whole. Bancroft Register. R. N. and J. P. Bruer left on Tuesday for a trip through Mississippi and Louisiana to look over the pine lands, with a possible view to investing and putting in a plant for converting the trees into lumber. Bancroft claims the unique distinction of being the only town within a radius of 200 miles that doesn't expect a railroad or two next summer. E. C. Anderson won a suit against the local school board Saturday for his salary as treasurer. The board concluded to curtail the $25 salary, but failed to notify that officer; hence he easily secured a judgment against them. Ijodynrd Leader. E. H. Stephens & Co. of this place shipped 'out 278 cars of hay during the past year, that is from Jan. 1, 1808, to Jan. 1, 1899. This is a large shipment for one firm but they say they could have shipped more if cars could have been obtained. Wesley News. Mr. Nicholas Weignet, who resided 13 miles north, passed to the beyond Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the age of 56 years. Mr. Weignet was of German parentage, and came to this country many years ago. F. W. Andrews, a practical miller of Mason City, was in town Tuesday in consultation with the mill promoters. Mr. Andrews, who made application for management, also gave many suggestions and helped to shape plans. Those at the head of the mill are already looking around them for stone, as the mill is going to be built on a good foundation and they are anxious to begin work as soon as spring opens up. Hurt Monitor. The death of Fred Gray, at German Valley, occurred on Friday of last week. He was a eon of J, P, Gray, now of Oklahoma but formerly one of Buffalo township's early settlers. Fred was a young wan of some 22 years of age, and hie untimely death is a hard blow to the family. He had W»e up t rom Ok-' laboma only a couple of weeks previous to bis death and went to work in a blacksmith shop. The sudden change of climate and tbe phar&oter pj fcU work brought o« the flnajt reeiiH, and within a week's space pf tfw$A Two ftOflidentB g,t E. p, J^IUJ'e flap pened Ju etjopession.

He rode over to Burt and Dr. Beano sewed up the gap, and a scar, in the course of a short time, will probably be the only mark to tell the story. It was, however, a close call. On Monday the hired man was cutting wood when the ax glanced and cut Ms foot in bad shape, and Lynn Keith made another trip to Burt with a patient. The question how is, will the third one come to them? Union Township Notes. Mr. Jack Frost has been very busy the past week. He has found the way into most of the farmers' cellars around hero.

Cnfte* of Interest In KoSStitli County Are Passed On at lies Molnes. The supreme court has at this term settled several cases of great itriport- ance to local parties. One is the Hal- soy suit against Everlnghain & Co., the Chicago commission merchants, the Bohn fence case against the Northwestern railway is another. The Walkley-Clarke case, the suit of McGuire Bros, against Charley Blanohard, and the suit of B. W. Haggard against Peterson of Swea City are others. THE HALSEY-EVEKINGHAM SUIT. The supreme court reverses this case and knocks out Halsey's claim. A motion has been made for a rehearing and Mr. Clarke is confident he will get one. Hnlsey is the West Bond man who shipped 1,200 cars of hay to Everingham in Chicago. Everlngham took out over $10,000 for charges that he never reported to Hulsey, and Halsey sued and got a judgment in the lower court. The supreme court reviews the case and makes two findings, one that Everingham did not steal anything and the other that Halsoy knew what ho stole. THE BOHN FENCE CASE. The fence along the Northwestern track through G. Bonn's farm in Plum Creek blow down during the cyclone and four horses got out on the track and wero killed, Bohn sued the company but was beaten by the jury. After the'vordict was in it developed that one of the jurors was an old Northwestern fence builder and had helped build this fence and that he told the other jurors that the fence was all right. Judge Thomas gave n. new trial on this account and the supreme court sustains him. The case will be tried again. THE CHARLEY BLANCHARD CASE. McGuire Bros, of Belmond contracted for some land of Charley Blanchard ofEltnore. When Charley turned it over they objected to the title and sued him for $1,000 dnmngos. Judge Carr took the case from the jury and hold that the title vvns all the contract called for and gave Charley a decree. The supreme court reverses this, saying that the should have gone to the The Falling of the Thermometer is certain in January. Therefore it is a good plan to to keep plenty of COAL in your bins.

'^J&J The Clay Clement Company Gets Into Trouble In an Illinois Town, CANTON, 111., Feb. 10.—The Clay Clement company Is accused of having attempted to palm off a substitute for Glemeat at tonight's performance here. The real Clay Clement, it is said, stopped off near El Paso, 111., to visit his parents, and his understudy was to play his part here, but Manager Head of the new opera house refused to permit the company to give a performance of "The New Dominion." Mr. Head has attached a carload of baggage and scenery and has sued the manager, John Henry Martin, for $160 damages. The suit is set for Feb. 15. As Bailey Sees It, An exchange says there is no such real thing as eize; that size depends largely upon the distance from the object we have in view. Perhaps that is why a dollar looks so much bigger some times than others. SWEAT will not discolor goods dyed with Putnam Fadeless Dyes.

W, Haggard bought a note known as " blue sky" signed by Peterson of Swea City. Peterson swore that he never signed a note and his attorneys also argued that when Haggard bought it he had newspaper notice sufficient to put him on inquiry, and that therefore he was not an innocent purchaser. The supreme court upholds this view, and the decision will doubtless be final as to what are known as "blue sky" notes. IN MEMORIAM. The announcement of the death of Mrs. Mary H. Carter in Elkader on Saturday, Feb. 11, will bring sadness to many hearts. Mrs. Garter had not been strong for some years and a sudden attack of grippe proved as in so many cases fatal. Mrs, Carter was a woman who had passed through a long life to draw and bind other hearts closer to her, and this because she loved or respected others. Had she lived until May next, she would have been 80 years of age. On her 84 birthday Mrs. Preston, the niece in whose home she was so tenderly cared for in her later years, entertained a number of her lady friends to do her honor, and although an invalid Mrs. Carter gave to those present as much joy as she received. She wrote to a friend soon after this event: "Yes, the loving wisdom of my Heavenly Father has seen fit to prolong my life to old age and with it to me have come many of Its infirmities. I am not entitled to be called a saint even by my dearest friends. We all attain a degree of saintship if we follow in the steps of Him who went about doing good, even Jesus, whose power will keep us from falling and present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy." In a letter written a year later she said: "T enclose to you an extract from Mrs. H. B. Stowe's writings, 'How many earthly desires and worldly feelings are shaken from the soul by the tempest of a great sorrow, even as the faded leaves of autumn. But when all the leaves are stripped from the tree and It stands bare and desolate under the lashings of the winter winds, there still remains, carefully sealed upon every branch and twig, buds of celestial hue, which are to unfold into leaf and flower In the summer of God's kingdom.'" Mrs. Carter was a woman possessed of strong and fervent religious faith, and linked with this a comprehensive intellect which made her judgment clear and penetrating. And crowning all WHS the loving heart and a sunny and joyous temperament. She made the world about her brighter and better for others. The friends who have known her will feel that a joy and radiance have Indeed passed from the earth, No good cause ever appealed to her in vain. She was a charter member of the Algona W. C. T. U. organization. She was ti firm and earnest supporter of our public library, making a donation of.valuable books while she was a. resident of Algona. How often has her presence in the prayer meeting made the place seem almost like the gateway of heav besides everything that can be desired in plain and ornamental Picture Frames, Mouldings and goods that are required for beautifying and ornamenting the home.
