It also tore down Geo. Wolcott's barn, John Gaul's barn and a fine large barn on the Drake place, one mile northwest of town, which is rented by F. F. Sanders. Sanders had a lot of oats scattered all over the farm and machinery and other property smashed. Mr. Saundors has his property covered by insurance in the State of DOS Moines, as has also Mr. Gaul. Mrs. Saunders had a very narrow escape. She was in the barn when the first light wind struck it and went out and around a corner of the building to go to the house when the wind took the barn. She was blown to the foot of the hill the barn stood on but was unhurt. Sill and sections of the walls of the building were scattered all over a 40-acre field. Andrew Bratlind, who lives northeast of town, had a barn destroyed that cost him nearly $800, last year. Ho had no tornado insurance. Prof. G. F. Barslou, of Wesley, has been in the city with his iamily making a visit with friends. Just put it in your pipe and smoke it that he will be the next superintendent of schools of Kossuth county. " J.

Look out for his ad'in this papernoxt week. • '•••>• Tho Bancroft and Algona ball nines played a six-inning game at the Burt picnic, Saturday. Our boys had not played but one game this season and had had no practice. At the end of the 5th inning the score stood 7 to 0 in favor of Algona, bu* in the sixth our pitcher, who was not used to playing, gave out, and Algona batted out 13 runs, making the score 20 to 8, which is not quite as bad as Bancroft defeated Algona at tho same place last year when the.score stood 20 to 5 in favor of our boys. We have it from good authority that Algona and Armstrong will play at Algona .the Fourth, and if they do, there will bo a hot game with the chances rather in favor of Armstrong. While tho other candidates have boon making more noise and fuss about their candidacy than has Samuel Mayne, yet we believe his chances are better than any of them. Mr. Mayne lived here since the town started and has the confidence of the entire community and ho would make an A No. 1 legislator. A. L. Mathwlff )ms ceased working in Johnson's barber shop and wo havo not heard what he Intends to' do. Jack Johnson, of Buffalo Center, formerly of this phvce, is expected to itake Al. Mathwig's plaoo in Johnson's barber shop. August Johnson, tho experienced butter- maker who has done so muoh towards making 1 the Sonoca creamery successful, has hired out to the Bancroft creamery, which will be quite an aid to that institution, A. Mayer & Co. have bought out A. Furst* enberg's stock of machinery and business and Mr, Furstenbere' will put up a two-story brick iltuble building to ibo occupied by A. Mayor & Co- downstairs, and a hall upstairs. This will give this firm an elegant business place and Bancroft a very fine building, probably the finest in the city, Bancroft is booming, Most of tne Bancroft people expect to oel- obrate tho Pourtu at Algona.

Borryman left last Monday afternoon to attend the Masonic Grand Lodge at Marshujltown. emu as became the memorial of a nation's honored dead, was received with hearty applause. The same was true of his manly appeal for justice to tho disabled and vanishing ranks of our nation's defenders; equally noble and geheroas was his plea for the "charity of the bravo" that shall yet heal the wounds of war and cement a united country for the achievements of tho mighest republic on earth. Hon. J. W. Akers is easily a master upon the platform, andchimsolf a veterans puts a fire and force into his impassioned words that stirs tho hearts of all who hoar. Tho veterans and citizens of Bancroft are indebted to Mr. Akers for the conspicuous help ho generously gave in making the day so eminently successful. tedted when tfaey Can have them ihsufexi dt the extremely low -rales thai G.

It has three legs on one side and one on the other ( but it only uses two of them. All the legs are fully developed and have chicken claws. Ex^Treasurer Rico and daughters Minnie and Carrie intend to take a pleasure and fishing tour up to Center Chain lakes in a few days. The showers have revived and refreshed the face of nature, .and of man also. The farmers seem to be well pleased now with tho prospect for good crops. The high and drying wind, Friday last harmed lots of corn in this locality, and It needed something to revive such fields as havo more or less sand in tho soil. ; Wm. Stabenow intends to leave today for Marion, Iowa. It seems that the prospects for tiling are not very encouraging justnow. Ed Simpkius and D. Rico have replanted some of their corn that was damaged by the hot winds of last week. HEBRON. .HEBRON, May 31.—Very heavy winds from tho southwest prevail here today and the farmers are taking a rest, as it is very unpleasant on account of the dirt .of which the air is full.

Algona, but through some freak of his sight he took Algona to be'Weley, till he got a milo or two this side. We have heard of people getting so they could see double, but can't account for an occurrence of this kind. If from our own personal knowledge we could not vouch for the strict sobriety of Mr. Albin wo might think it was caused ,by lemonade (?). Ho says ho was asleep.— Whittemore Champion. UNION. .

He is also digging a cyclone cave. The rainfall of late has been quite frequent, which is very good for crops. The farmers were beginning to feel discouraged, fearing their hard labor would end in a fruitless harvest again this year.

Sits Down Hard on Bacon. Wesley Reporter: We have a letter from Mr. E. F. Bacon in answer to tho headline of our article last week "Was It Murder?" in which he attemps to make out the sufferings of the people who were hurt by the •cyclone paralell with tho sufferings of Claude Tryon, which to thoso who are con- servant with the facts in the case is extremely nonsensical, as there is no more comparison'than day is like night. -Tho ' .length of the article, and the ignorance of Mr. Bacon-as to the real facts in the case and, as he states nothing new or more to the point than in his last article wo deem it best not to publish the letter. Built n Cyoldno Cave. Bancroft Register: The school directors of district No. 4, Harrison township, set a good example last week, Director Wunn informs us. With some of tho patrons they got together and constructed a cyclone cave a short distance from tho school building; it is 5x14, about 0 feet deep, the roof formed by laying ties across tho top and covering them with sod. Two doors wero'placed at tho entrance, and an ample air shaft run through tho roof, making -a commodious and perfectly safe retreat for tho school should occasion ever demand; Their'example should bo generally followed. , Shouldn't Burn Straw, Germania Standard: During the heavy winds on Monday the barn of W. L. Boyce 1 mile northwest of town was burned to ashes by fire. About throe weeks ago Mr. Boyce was burning some straw near his- place which he supposed was out entirely, but during the heavy winds the first of the week this scattered about tho place in general. Nothing more was suspected, but' all of a sudden firo was seen blazing near the barn. Water being scarce and the time limited, the barn was in flames din a short time. All that could be done was to remove the machinery and hogs from a scorching domicile which was transacted nicely with the exception of three sm,all pigs. The barn was burned outright and the loss is estimated at Decoration Pan croft Register, The orators of the day were Mayno gsq. of our city and ex-superinten, dent Akers of P-es Monies. Mr. Mayne delivered a. masterful address, beautiful in diction, sU'png in grasp of manly priuclp. Jes, and elevated in deep and generous sentiments of American patriotism.
