THE UPM3K MplAJSJ?:'. ALOONA, 1OVV,\, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 2f, 1800, THE NEWS OF THE COUNTY Germani« has ft flouHsblng K. of P. lodge. - Mat Freilinger will tent bis farm at Seneca this year Hod let his boys hire out. The ladies at German ia cleared $90 at & church bazar. That is pretty W£. W. C. Dewel, wbo has abljr edited the the Goldfield Chronicle, has bought the Hurt Monitor-. Last Thursday at Ledyafd James Depaan sold to L. Wollcott eight hogs that averaged 475 pounds. The Ledyard Leader says J. W. Neieter will not be a candidate for supervisor in the sense of seeking an appointment. The Reporter says the Fenton poultry buyers have bought over 9200 pounds of poultry during the last week, and still they come. A. L. Cheney, an old-time Algonian, had a farm sale Dec. 22nd, at his home One mile southeast of Titonka. Se will move near Bancroft next March. A pony keg of beer was recently into Ledyard addressed to " Adam Dryman." There were numerous claimants, each of whom proffessed be was a dam dry man. Mrs. John BUBS is very sick at German Valley. She had "a swelling on her thumb and had it lanced, and then blood poipon set in and her whole arm swelled up. She IB in a dangerous condition. Here is an item in the Wesley News which the Courier ought to send to Wm. J. Bryani At the auction given by the Dorcas society last Friday night Jim Neville sold silver dollars from $2.25 to $2.60 apiece. Ed. Bircher has tak^n a branch agency at Bancroft for tlj<- Calkins supply bouse ot Algona. He will not carry a stock but will sell from samples, goods to be shipped up in lots once or twice a week to save freight. G. F. Holloway has made at trade whereby he secured the mother of his famous diver. Queen. The Register says she is a pure grey, like her illustrious daughter and has identically the same head and neck. George would'nt take a fortune for the old girl. Rev. McAulay is planning to begin a series of meetings at Burl, to continue two weeks. Rev. Clupp has promised to assist in the work; and this date is the only unpromised time he has, so it was thought best to accept such a good offer. Mrs. D. C. Adams was taken quite by surprise at Seneca by the appearance of her hrother, George Brace of Alpha, la., whom she had not seen for fourteen years. He was accompanied by a cousin, Sylvester Brace, living near Algona. He visited a couple of day«,and returned to his home, leaving the brother to remain until after the holidays. yft could see a passe! o* b'ar goirr through a scrub oatc patch wonsf. When they go inter a patch to her a equar' meal they git it ready by raisin' oii their hind feet an* crashin' an' thrashin' the acorns offen the bushes with their forepaws. In less *n no time they'll make a scrub oak patch look ez if a mowin' machine bad ben run through it. When the b'ar has thrashed down enough -o' the scrub to give him what be thlnks'll pan out enough acorns fer his dinner, he'll gobble 'em up like a young un will sugar plums. When we go out lookin' fer sign o* b'ar in the fall, we alluz size up our chances fer the season by the way the scrub oaks is thrashed down. "Another tiling that's better to me than a nigger show fer makin' me how] an' bo!d4ny Bides is to see some cunnin' ol* b'ar sparrin' with a lot o' yalier jackets. Ye know what them is. don't ye? They'm about the hottest- footed critters fer their size that is in the hull bee family. They giner'ly hev their nests in the ground, an' n b'ar can't go by one of 'em unless he digs it up. Then he has the hull durn •warm of 'em tumblin' out an' pitchin' Inter him in less 'n a pig's whisper. That seems to be bin little gome, fer he'll raise up on his ha'nches an' clip one here, an' another un there, and all the time his mouth is open, jest ez If he were laughin' at the way the yal- ler jackets ain't a-worryin' of him a bit, and knows blame well that he is everlastingly riliu' them. Sometimes he'll set still an' let the hull swarm settle on him till he looks ez yeller pz a dandyline patch, an' then all of a sud- dent he'll drop an' roll over an' over, ez if he weiv hnviii' more fun thau a pns- sel o' boys in swimmln". "But the l>oss fun a b'ar has is wal- ler holes. B'ars lives a good part o' the time in the swamps, an' long In the summer time they come out an' dig holes in the muck along the edges o' the swamps. They bury theirscifs in these holes all but their nones, but every little while they'll slosh around, an' the soft mud an* the black waterll hist up around 'em like a volcano, an' they'll snort an' kick an' tumble by the hour. More'n wunst I've gone out to watch a waller hole fer to put a ball inter one o* these carousin' b'ars, but arter watchiu' him aud larfin at his capers fer an' hour an' better I've jist got up an' dug fer home an 1 left him a clrcusin'.

A youiiK man who die regarded the rules of the menagerie in Central Pnrk not to annoy or play with animals was Ed. Davison came home from Fairmont to Bancroft with a badly broken foot and ankle. He was working with an elevator crew there, and they had 'about completed the job and were sot- ting-the engine. Ed. was standing on it fixing something overhead when one of tbe men gave the wheel a turn and started the engine without first warn- iug him, with a result of his foot slipping off and in some manner getting mixed up with thecranic rod, mangling it badly. Hurt Monitor: We are informed that G. S. Angus is negotiating for the purchase of the C. E. Heise residence in Algona. They will move down in tiie near future. Mr. and Mrs. Angus have always boen fictiyo in church and society in Burt, always aiding in every good enterprise, and their leaving is muoh regretted by their many friends here. Active duties upon the farm, however, must be given up, and they will no doubt enjoy their new home and surroundings in Algona. Swea City Herald: James Jenks was over from Ledyard Monday in the interests of his candidacy for tho appointment of supervisor to fill vacancy. Mr. Jenks is a capable man and would undoubtedly made a good official but the Herald thinks that it is none of our business who the east side wants for supervisor. The republican convention last year decided that the east side of the north end of the county was entitled to the supervisor and we think it is for that corner to decide who they want now that Mr. Pendleton has decided to resign. badly scared the other day. He stood in front of the leopard cage in the animal house, and, taking off his golf cap, be#nu to shake it in front of a young leopard. The leopard reached out his paw and seized the cap and at the same time buried his claws in the young man's coat sleeve, tearing a piece out. The leopard carried the golf cap into his cage, where he tore it in pieces. One of the attendants in the animal house gave the young man an old hat, and he left without leaving his name. iirflcntlon* fif a linfhelnr. Some women would rather have a hyphen in their names than a home. The trouble generally is that neither one can tell just-where it began. A man who loves dumb animals can never treat a woman very badly. A girl never feels uncomfortable so long as she thinks her clothes look stylish. The woman who says she has the most confidence in her husband is gen erally ilju most anxious to know everything lie doos. A man always gives himself away when he is on his wedding tour by trying to act as though it bored him to tuck in his wife's sleeves.—New York Press. Sutt's Sure Remedy for Hog Cholera.
