Ask your friends to turn out to the band coficert at Jefferson Hall Friday nightand you will surely get your Money's worth. Dr, Morse'was up froin Algona last Tuesday evening. The ladies of the methodist church will give a supper in the front room of the new State Bank Monday night. There will be a Grand Band Concert in Jefferson Hall next Friday evening, June 29th, by the Union Band of Bancroft, directed by Prof. Bartlett, Who has composed all the music. There will be a chorus of 15 voices with band accompaniment. Every body isireqitested to attend, as they will give a fine program. There is no doubt but this will bo the best concert given in this county, asiProfi Bartlett and the members of the band and choir have spared neither time, hard work or money to make this a grand success. This is the only band in the northwest that has a lady baritone soloist. The people of Bancroft and vicinity owe it to the band to turn out and give them a good big house next Friday night, as the band has received very little encouragement from the people at large and have been to quite a good deal of trouble. Everybody help crowd the house. BANCROFT CONQUERS. Bancroft and Swea City Flay a One-Sided Game. Another to be Played Friday at Bancroft. The second game of ball between Bancroft and Swea City was played at the latter village last Thursday afternoon, and the result was a score of 27 to 14 in favor of Bancroft, of follows: 133456789 Total. Bancroft 221134284 .... 27 Swea City 713001101 .... 14 The above score not only shows that Bancroft won the game by a large margin but also that they worked against odds, for the reason that Swea City piled up seven runs in the first inning, and supposed they had a very soft mark. Perkins was himself in the box that day a id Swea City only got four scores on his delivery. He also made a splendid batting record, as he made fourscores and died on bases twice. Tallinan held down second in fine shape. Guy Streater, an old-time Bancroft boy, pi ayed the best game of any in the Swea City nine. He caught behind the bat and took in some hard fly fouls and made three scores in the batting record for Swea City. Thelast time Bancroft played Swea City they received splendid treatment, but this time it was not the case. Still two men were responsible for all the talking and jangling there was, and the most of the Swea City fellows were all right. . Another game between the same clubs forla purse of $100, is to be played at Bancroft next Friday afternoon and we should not be surprised if it was the bestgame ever played in old Kossuth. There was ,a rumor this morning on the street to the effect that Swea City was to have 7 Forest City players iri the game, but we presume Bancroft will only import two. There s one thing we can assure Swea City of ana that is good treatment while they are here. Friday will be a gala day for Bancrc ft, as there, is a ball game in the afternoon supper in the evening and after that a jrand band concert in Jefferson Hall. -Ivory- body should take a half day off and attend all these attractions and have a jollv good old fashioned time. } WHITTEMORE. The dance Friday evening was a success, as it deserved to be, as it was for the benefit of the band. By the way, our band is getting to be something to be proud of. The boys can make as nice music as need be. The Good Templars are to give an entertainment, which we understand is to be free, followed, and perhaps preceded by ice cream, etc., the proceeds to be used to pay for their organ, Geo. Boyle is off to Denver and the Re publican League National Convention, He expects to visit a couple of his brothers on the way. F. C. Groveman's new store building is rapidly nearing completion.

It looks as though our machine men here were doing a good business since the recent rains. « In President Carnot, Francis loses a gcod man, but long live the Arfny of the iiCj is the sentiment of her soldiers and a large maj Dtiry of her citizens.

A splendid rain was the splendid event of the season, all being interested. Swea City and Bancroft crossed bats Thursday last, which resulted in a victory for Bancroft. The Swea City boys have nothing to say, only J. A. Freeh made them believe they were in the failing field and wrote three policies on their scalps. The same teams play next Thursday for ?35 between the two towns to decide who can play ball. Jake, yomhad better insure your men before you venture to let them leave the city, and bring Prof. Anderson for umpire. Fairmont is going to celebrate the 4th of July in grand style.

A Noted London Mission. The other Sunday night at the Char* rington mission, which is held in a long, narrow room, double galleried all around, the coughing (from the fog) was more like Fourth of July with conglomerate firecrackers, church bells and cannonading than one would conceive as possible issuing from a merely human assembly. Just a word about this Charrington mission, which is a feature of the east end. Frederick Gharrington belongs to a wealthy family of brewers. About 17 years ago he began to do a sort of street missionary work in East London, near his father's brewery. His father threatened to disinherit him, but finally left him a share, though not a full share, in the business. Once, on being taunted on the street with wearing the blue ribbon—"What does it cost you to wear that ribbon?"—he was able to reply, "A hundred thousand dollars." He Bold out his interest in the brewery to his brothers and built in Mile End road, the prolongation of Whitechapel, the Great Assembly hall, which had been projected but never begun by Keith- Falconer. Every Sunday night 8,000 or more people gather at the evangelistic service of the mission, and its fellowship society, with the constant religious, educational and entertainment work centering at the Great Assembly hall, makes it a power for good in a district which contains a number of powers for evil.—London Cor. Hartford Courant. • sjck \veek,, put is »PW improving, 4 few Of tb9 Gf9P4Tei»nJarj foeJd an night wlp.» last Saturday ntfhfc Remarkable Tenacity of Life. . The pious Dr. Shirely Palmer tells a fish story that is. calculated to make the members of the St.-Louis Hunting and Fishing association (to use a strictly original expression) "turn green with envy." By some hook or crook—hook no doubt—Mr. Palmer came into possession of ft fine brace of tench. They were a lively pair of finny beauties when the doctor took them home with the idea of slaughtering them for his Sunday dinner. Placing them in a pail of water, he put them into the larder and thought no more about the matter. That night at midnight he was aroused, so he says, by a groan proceeding from the aforesaid larder. Inspection of the room explained the mystery. .One of the fish had sprung from the basin or pail and lay gasping upon the floor, every now and then uttering sounds similar to those which had disturbed Mr, Palmer. Next day both fish were prepared for dinner, but such was their tenacity of life that both, after haying undergone the process of scaling and evisceration, sprang from the pan and wriggled about on the floor as though they had but recently been removed from their native element. This is told as a scientific fact, not as a "fiah story" or in the way, of a joke,— St. Louis Republic. The Strain on tlie Eye. There is no reason why a muscle w muscles of the eye should not be fagged out just as the muscles elsewhere do. Let one bear a weight all day long, does he not attribute his consequent headache to the heavy burden he has borne? It seems without elaborate thinking we could conceive of the results following upon prolonged use of the eye, Nature has done all she could to protect a»d prolong the usefulness of the eye. No earthly architect ever yet planned ft structure that would not yield, crumble »nd fall, and the house human, go ex« ^uisitely uplifted to curious &»d my$* teriouswaysr falls, and, returns to a "~ L more rapidly and surely than jjee< for the reagon that we do uot how rouoh o»e part i§ sustained or over* thrown by another One ttoy muscle j« potent e»oufb to disturb the whole eoo»' omy, eppeejally if teteroBrrent al essl? to attBttoa to "eye etrato."'
