He took the evening train tor Cedar Eapids, where he went to attend as a delegate the Iowa Grand Lodge of Masons, which was to convene in that city yesterday morning. Owing to the absence of Mr. Freeh the Bancroft News department is necessarily dropped from the REPUBLICAN this week. Mr. Freeh has performed a service for his town, as well as for this paper, during the past three years, which is worthy of special recognition. He has been about as regular in his contribution of news as has been the issuance of the paper, and that is in itself a fact worthy of notice and deserving praise . M or e 1 abor i s i nvolved in such a service as Mr. Freeh has rendered than people ordinarily take account of. Tbe newspaper man knows what it means. ' OEO. E. CLABKE, CITAS. A. OOHKNOITB.

There was an interesting meeting of the Outlook Thursday afternoon in the Congregational Church, at which Miss Clara Zablten read a paper on "Modern Italy." Mrs. L. C. Smith gave a paper on "The New South, with personal Beminiscences of War Days in Washington," where she was during the war, and where she saw Lincoln and Ihe marching of the armies. Mrs. Putsch reviewed an article in the Cbau- tauquan, on "Beggars'in Paris." " The meeting opened, as usual, with quotations by the members. Art will be the subject about winch'-, at the next meeting, these literary, gems clustered: Some time was given, as-usual, to the discussion of the news of the day, which, as we understand, is the nearest approach to gossip.that is countenanced in the meetings of, the Outlook. Court adjourned Saturday night. About the only important" case tiied the latter part 'of the week was the Wesley street case, of Ann'.McPherson vs the Mayor and Couhcil'bf Wesley. in which the court was asked to set aside the action of the defendant in vacating a street lying between the lots of plaintiff and Mrs. Gr. W. Eddy. There was an error in locating the line, arid Mrs. Eddy's residence was built on ground which a resurvey proved was part of the street. Mrs. McPherson's lot bad a street on two sides of it- aside from this one, and. so the town vacatec it, Mrs. Eddy agreeing to pay for par of the street should one be laid in the future. The trial was to the court, and the judgement was for the defendant. authorized the use made of his name. It lias been suggested to the RKPtrttLi- OAK that the fact should bo made public, as a sufficient explatition of bis absence from the session in which be was announced to take a part. The convention baipg held on Sunday, conflicted with bis own regularly appointed services, and Mr. Gorrell did the right thing under tbe circumstances in going on with tbe latter. There was a band picnic, base ball tournament and dance, all rolled into one, up at Blake's grove, a mile or two easfof Burt, Saturday afternoon and night. A large crowd was out. Tbe bands participa'tine were ttiose of Burt and Algona, and tbe ball nines were tbose of Algona and Bancroft. In the ball game Bancroft won on.a score of 21 to 7. Tbe report comes, that members of the Algona band disgraced themselves and then- 'town by hard drinking, and unhappily no denial has been made. As a consequence a bitter quarrel has broked t out in the band which threatens its dissolution. •Chas. Stewart, o£ Burt, was one of those who took in. the festivities Saturday night, and at a late hour he set out for home, but he bad not gone many- rods when bis pony bolted and carried' him at full speed against Ernest Bacon's barbed wire fence, 'His outcries rougbt assistance and' he was taken nto Mr. Bacon's house, where it was ound that his leg near, the knee had een laid open to the bone. Dr. Beane was called, but Stewart, was taken to Jurt before bis wound was dressed. He doing well, Sunday morning the M. J. KENEF10K, M. D. Olttce over Taylor's store.

It seems to have stranded up in Minnesota. Fortunately for this paper, it learned the situation through the Minneapolis dailies in time to throw out the show's ad and fill up the space with interesting reading matter, while both the other papers ran the ad and are out that much. Gr. W. Hunter has a big bill against the show for livery hire, the bill board men had another, and there was disgust all around. Happily, the. BEPUBLIOAN'S announcement came in time to warn the people of the county, and there was no more stir- in towp Friday than on any other week day, The name of ftev, GorreH, Rec'tor of the Epjscopal'church, appeared in ^he program as one of the participants Jn the Sunday School Convention, but jt is learned that be was not consulted nor even approached on the Abject 91 the convention, -and Q£ cowse never IN C, B, PAUL, M, D,, WHITTEMQRB - - "- IOWA, Regular Office hows s to i? a, m,, a to § p. m.
