Tells of His Trip to Cuba After Leaving' Our Boys— Miscellaneous News of the County. Germania gave a splendid reception last Friday evening in honor of Dr. Waud's son, just home from Cuba. Between 50 and CO of the old Company F boys at Chickamauga were present and helped to celebrate, The boys were taken to supper at the hotel, then to the church for a program of music and speeches, then to an elaborate banquet that would have doue honor to a city. Among the speakers were Col. Cooko and Soargt. Cohenour of Algona, anc Lieut. Randall of Whitternore. Lieut. Waud talked pleasantly of his experience after leaving the boys and going to Cuba. Everybody says it was an enjoyable re- uuion. And everybody praises the Ger mania way of doing things. J Bender. The editor of the Leader took a 'trip out to Westfall's place west of Leuyard yesterday afternoon to see P, W. Shoonover, who represents the Standard Husker Co. of Terre Haute, Ind., make a practical test of their busker in Iowa corn. The machine does everything claimed for it, and will husk from eight to ten acres of corn every day. It husks the corn just as clean as can be done by hand, aud does not shell the coru iu the least. It does not take but two meu and two teams to operate it—one man and one team with busker, aud a man, team aud wagon to take the corn. It is a good thing for the farmer and we predict that in less than five years there will be no more corn husking by hand. Uancrod Kejilstor. The Standard Oil people have put in a distributing- station at Germauia aud Bancroft dealers will hereafter receive their supply from that point. Bancroft's first flowing well was struck on J. F, Sudmeier's place, at the east edge of town, last Friday at a depth of 380 feet. The flow is a fairly strong oue, and piped six feet above the ground runs the same as at the surface. Ole Brooke was in Bancroft yesterday buying a bill of lumber with which to build a kitohen addition to his residence. Helen was not >yith him, and we have since Jearaed that she revalued iu New York. A few days e,K<) a citizen asked a local . .grocer bis prices on a list of goods he had ' .written. The items amounted to some $21 fit (be merchant's prices, but the possible ou.8toin.ev said he could save over a dollaV by swdlug to Montgomery Ward & Co. lie 8en$, nn4 %e freight—»u ltej» pn he had not figured—made his groceries cost him §1.50 more than tlio price quoted by the home dealer. A day or two later the patron of tho city store dropped in to see if tho grocer wouldn't buy some of his hay. but instead of telling him to go sell it where ho bought his groceries tho dealer put aside the natural impulse and gave a courteous answer, .LiuVorno NOWH. Guy Hnnna is now at Coama, Porto Rico, where he is stationed with his company, M of tho llth regiment of infantry. In a let ter home Guy says he is enjoying good health und weighs more than when lie left New York. Why wouldn't it be a good idea for some twenty-five or thirty of our citizens to get together some flue day with rakes and go out and clean up the dead grass in the cemetery and burn it? It would improve the looks of tho cemetery quite a bit. Whltteuiore Champion, Commencement Tuesday evening, May 30, at opera house. Don't fail to attend the first graduating exercises of the Whittemore schools. The pipe organ man arrived Monday to put in the organ in the Lotts Creek church. It will bo one of the finest in this part of the state. Our base ball nine has been unable to practice of late but will be at It again as soon as the weather permits, and Manager Lieu will then arrange a series of games. At the opening of the class day exercises last Friday night President Pearl Fail-burn kindly requested the ladies to remove their hats and nearly all complied. It was a very reasonable and at the same time sensible request. liurt Monitor. Rev. W. B.

As soon as her parents found it out the doctor was Summoned, but the pin had sought lodging so far down that he could 'hot locate it. The little girl was taken to Algona Tuesday but got no relief there, and last night she was taken to Mason City whe_re it is hoped the pin can be removed us it is causing severe pain. She cannot oat nnything, and liquid is nil she has swallowed since the accident. Perhnps tho largest gathering that ever helped celebrate a golden wedding were present at Mr. mid Mrs. Frank Andorfc-r's three and one-half mi Ins south of Sexton Tuesday. Friends were present from every direction, but more would have been there had the roads been hotter. The Wesley band went out in tho afternoon to help furnish music. The Soxton orchestra fur nishc'd the music for tho dancers, and a pood time was lin<] all around. Manv costly presents were left the couple to sliow the esteem in which they are held.

Mrs. Nels Kossoll of Seneca took the train here Tuesday for Guorpln. to visit her parents, Mr. and Mrs. R. I. Brnvton, who moved down from this county. If she likes it in Georgia she will probably move to that state. J. Packman has a corn deal on his hands that is nbil. shaky. Ho took chattel mort page on a field of corn but on account of tho snow he wns unable to got it husked before the lenso of tho ground expired. Indeed, ho could not got to it in April, but the first week in May ho had cloven inou in the field husking 1 when thny were stopped by tlie deputy sheriff at tho instigation of the landlord's agent in Ledyard. No attempt had been made to crop any of the land of the tract so that tho corn could not have been in tho way, so it looks Hko an attempt to beat.loo out of the corn. The end is not yet. Tl ton hit Toplt 1 . B. W. Haggard und Harry Moore of Algona were Titonka visitors Friday. They can testify as to the value of tho Titonka gun chili I raps. One of tho events of the year is always tho German Valley picnic. It promises 'to be fully as gnod this year as it bus in the pnst. Juno 0 is the, date set for it, and it will occur at S.

Tho baccalaureate sermon will bo preached by Rey. H. L. Case at tho M. E. church on Sunday evening, May 28. The class has issued a very neat commencement program. This is the first class that has over graduated from our schools since tho district was organized.
