WESLEY, April 3: Grandmother Tard who has been reported sick sev- feral times this winter died Friday tevening at 8 o'clock. She was one of early settlers of Wesley township land helped make this country what it is today. Mrs. Ward was past 80 years of age. She has been making' her home with her daughter, Mrs. W. P, Giddings, since her husband died several years ago. The funeral was held at the Congregational church conducted by Rev. Mason, Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The remains were taken to the cemetery and laid to rest beside those of her husband. Prof. H. L. May of New Albany, a nephew of Mrs. O. J. O'Brien was visiting friends here and also interviewing the members of the school board Saturday and Monday, returning home Monday evening. A goodly number of the Odd Fellows of Algona were over to the funeral of Chas. Bronson, Saturday. Among them were E. H. Clark, Ed. Blaokford, Sheriff Christensen and Warren Laird. While going up in the steeple of the Methodist church Saturday morning to toll the bell for Grandma Ward, the ladder slipped and let Roy Anderson fall about 12 feet dislocating his shoulder and bruising him other ways. Several passing by at the time heard him fall and came to his assistance and carried him home. Dr. Hall was called and adjusted his shoulder and left him feeling as comfortable as could be expected". He is now getting along nicely, but feels rather sore. The Ladies Aid society have purchased a dozen fine cane bottom chairs for the choir of the Methodist church. They put them in the church Monday. Easter services were held at the different churches Sunday. The program at the Methodist church was good and well rendered. The Wesley News office is moved from the Giddings building to one of the rooms over the state bank. There is good prospect of another telephone line in Wesley as soon as the weather will permit. If it is done we expect toll rates will drop. Dr. Waud of Germania is talking of running another line in here. There is no doubt that if the present telephone rates were cut in two there would still be a good margin left for the company. A. B. Giddings has the job of painting and papering the building formerly occupied by P. Peterson as a restaurant. We are informed that Scott Stover intends running a boarding house in it as soon as it is ready. MONEY to loan at 5 per cent, interest. Optional payments. H. HOXIE.

Librarian McElrpy's report for the ! irst quarter of tho year in the public ibrary is very flattering. There have Deen 23C new borrowers added to the ist, and 2,919 books have been given out. The attendance in the reading room has been 2,625 for the three months. At this rate the library will circulate 10,000 books during the year, and as the circulation is confined to less ;han 1,000 books, it will be seen that each book is on the move. The library s a great institution for Algona, and ought to have a lot of new books. The new telephone men, B. H. Chase, P. F. and H. J. Achate, are in town and iiave token possession of the local exchange, although Mr. Bailey still says " hello." Mr. Chase's family is in the Laclendorff home, The other men are unmarried.
