The Emmelsburg t)emocrat of the 28fch ult. says that Monday morning \Vm. iiefley, of this city, received a letter from his brother Jdhn, who resides in Hew Mexico, stating that their brother Phil, had been shot and killed by the Indians near a small town in northern Mexico. The circumstances of the occurrence are not given. When John wrote tne letter he had just heard of his brother's death and was about to start for the place where the shooting took place. The deceased left this city seven or eight years ago and never returned. He Was.a.rather daring young man and possibly got into some difficulty with those Who took his life. This is sad news to his mother and brothers. QOV., LARRABgg'S ' JN VESTMENT, His Soo Acreo of Land in KosfltUh CdUhty Mnv« InCfeSlSed in Yftlue 506' Pftr Cent. In Eight Years— Yet Hhcy Are not for Salov ' The Iowa Homestead lias the following to say in regard to Gm. Larr-abee'a land investments ia this ooUDty which is entirely accurate, and whieiiy though not by any means news to land 1 aieii in Kossuth, makes good reading: t^uite frequHutiy in the past year tfte Homestead nas had occasion to impress upon the minds or its readers the value that should uow be .placed' upon all good larm lauds, ulaimmg that the time will soon come when tuey will be at mpre,orlesso£ a premium. As an instance of tlie rise in tne value oi good Iowa lauds, we wish to'say that somfe eight years ago Ex-Woveruor LarraUee, uiuun against thu advice of hi« friends, purchased 8,000 acres of laud iu uortn- western Iowa, paying tlierelor four dollars i>er acre. iJecause people were «low then to comprehend the. wisdom of his.puuihase, it is no sign that he did not use good judgment, and did uot know what he was uoiug, lor it is now reported that he has refused', to sell this prairie land foi twenty dollars- per acre 'even, and thiuks the time is now- near at hand \vheii it will sell for .even bujjipe tuis sum. iu this he is, no, doqbj;v]acl;ing.the part,6f wisdom, and> -exei;tiiig;the use ot.,itis fai'sw^iug- mind; for it <iaa wel] established fact-tliac laud, ju^ftolrWfefferlii.-io^;- Wifh v1 'its 'peculiar aillJiyl^l cnamcter,',i f s of- the richest autTt/uVlifast suuject to droii'th of any in the state and iu case of this contingency ft ija most like' to raise corn': "ITor corn roots, if seed is giveufc fair chance "to Bprdut'first, will penetrate this - al-, luytal soil better than -any other and will go down five feet if nec"«jssary , in 'dr.der, to strike moisture. Years agb it !was considered too wet, but how, as ,th,e state' has become populated, and, the farms'tiled to a. considerable extent, there is not so, much complaint as there used to be in this respect. - Within the past few months'no small number of farmers from Illinois and otner., states have sold their farms for $75 "per acre, and upwards. They have done thifffor the purpose ongoing into northwestern Iowa and purchasing tuis alluvial land at a less figure, and of a good deai .better quality than that which they 'sold. These farmery are possessed of good mental and physical ability, and are imbued with an independence and self-denittlj whjch, with their ready money, wHl insure success in their:ayocation, and when they shall 'h'aye taken possession of -these- newly Acquired lands, and improved them as only the thrifty and intelligent farmer will, the change in this, particular portion of the sfa^e will be marked, and farms wUl-ga up in price at a rapid stride,, . office he accidentily or otlierwise shoved tlie broom under the stove when it fell down with a rush, shilling the live coals over the floor ; but John tflis equal to thetemergeney, for he soon had the stove Ithd coals outside. This should be a warning for people not to be so particular in sweeping. ACCIDENT, AT GERMAN!

Wesley licporter : The devil was let loose in Wesley last night: The trouble was of a family character. Al Ward, wiio some time agn run a harness shop here and afterward got to be -a horse ]0cket, and later developed into '8 Lip' podrope vider, came home Wednesday night- ttom Mason City with blood Hi his eye and thunder in his mouth out. All yesterday trouble was brewing iu the Wxrd domicile, and about 10 o'clock lust night Ward's bottled wrath burst forth like a little volcano. His mother-in-law uho had arrived* the previous evening to spend Thanksgiving with her daughter became so alarmed at Ward's threats and abusive language that she rushed out and sought shelter in the home of G. W. Eddy. Marshal Cosgroye was notified and to.nnd the cowardly-cur hiding in some bashes, but not having a warrant he did not arrest him. The Marshal then had Justice Obed Robinson issue a warrant, but on his return the culprit could not be found. HowdVer he was seen going south on horseback this morning and at the command of the Marshal he refused to halt, whereupon three shots were fired at him, but without effect. If this will permanently rid the town of Al Ward it will be several points gained, for had he been arrested he would more than likely have had to board at the county's expense for a month or more. Good riddance to bad rubbish. t SOME EXPLANATIONS. I^oi-pst City Summit: L. L. Colby was ip Ft.
