All pronounced it a fine lecture, and the receipts were more than usual on such occasions. We understand an effort is being made to get Elder Colo to come apain. Bertie Hallock, of the Burt Monitor, says we have wheels in our head, because wo mentioned tho report of a new railroad striking Bancroft. Very well, Bertie, but itis better to have wheels in one's head than to have the head entirely empty like your own, for you know wheels do move, while space never did anything. Besides, if you will rub your eyes long enough you will find that the prospects arc good for another road. We are sorry that tile idea of a railroad does jiot please you, 'Bertie, because we feel sure that the managers will not putin a road without first consulting your august personage. Died, on January 4th, 1895, Joseph Edwin Hartshorn, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Hartshorn, in Buffalo township, aged 7 months, of lung trouble. The baby was sick nine days.

WESI,KY, IOWA, Jan. 14,-^Beautiful lo* wa, with her mild winters and delightful summers, and her fertile soil, second- to none on earth. Who would not bo happy to be a citizen of Iowa, and particularly Wesley. If there are any people in our dull sister towns to whom life has become a burden on account of tho monotony of their daily existence let them come to Wesley. Wo can always get up an cxcit- ment here, if it is nothing more than some one stealing a while banty rooster. That is the latest sensation. D. B. Bacon had Sock Ford arrested today and brought before Squire Robinson on tho charge of stealing a white banty rooster. They wanted Sock to plead guilty, but he positively refused. Later—It seems Sock has returned the rooster and settled the case, each paying half tho cost. Guess we shall not see brother Raymond this hitch. Last summer a man came here from Dakota, calling himself Joe Morrison, and working with the steel gang. This winter he has been picking up odd .jobs and and boardingwith D. B. Bacdn and pilfering from tho stores to pay his board,Hugh McCutchin being tho heaviest loser so far as known. Hugh had him arrested last week for stealing some mittens and overshoes. Ho plead guilty and was fined live dollars and costs and was sent out te the county jail to servo his time. WliIJc he was resting in jail Hugh got out a search warrant and found goods secreted in several places in the lown: mittens, overshoes, clothing', etc. He even stole the key out of tho store to get into the Hour house just back of it, and iio one knows how much flour ho took, but Bacon says ho brought three sacks to his house. Morrison was brought back here on another charge and scmt to Aigona again to rest in jail until the grand jury meets in March. I suppose ho is well satisfied. There has been a pood deal of stealing going oir this winter of corn, coal, etc. Whoever ai-e doing it had better call a halt before they come to grief. We hope justice may be meted out to such people. Rev. Ludlam, a Baptist preacher, held services here in tho school house Sunday afternoon with a largo and appreciative audience. Ho came from Woodbine'and is located at Corwitli, where they expect soon to build a new Baptist church. Ho will preach hero every Sabbath afternoon at S o'clock.. The Odd Fellows hero had a public installation of officers last Wednesday evening. The hall was full, standing room being at a premium. It seems that Carl Olson has been having charge of the goat of late, and by tho way it frisked and blated when Carl brought it in, wo should j udg.e it had been well cared for. But on second, thought, perhaps it -was hungry. In )iis excitement Carl might have forgotten to give it its supper. The exercises at the lodge room were followed by a banquet, at Giddings'Hall. There could only CO be seated at the tables at one time and there must have boon four tables, The supper was elegant and nc one went away hungry.
