Williams, of Kansas City, an uncle of Rev. D. Williams, is visiting in Bancroft this week. Messrs. Campbell and Alcorn have finished invoicing their hardware stocks and thencw firm of Alcorn & Bronson will soon be ready for business in their ne'wly engaged store. Special communication of Progressive lodge A. F. and A. M, next Saturday evening for the purpose of conferring the E. A. degree. A full attendance is desired. Dr. Howe and family expect to-start for Missouri by team next week. J. J. Budlong, of Wesley, but formerly of this place, wasishaking hands with uis many old friends who were glad to see him looking hale and hearty. B. C. Anderson and M. A. Turner were at Buffalo Center last week on business, as was also ye scribe. Dr. O. H. Bemis has been confined to his bed with a severe attack of acute rheumatism. He is much better now, we are glad to be able to report. Samuel Maync and C. J. Lenander left yesterday.,to attend the republican state convention. The cool weather of Monday was 1 just the thing' for small grain. Providence seems to have favored the people of this section with just the right kind of weaih- er all. this season. Crops never looked fine/. ; .,T. L. Johnspn is putting a new of paint on the inside of his shop, thereby much improving its.appearance. Jim is always up with the Umes. A. L. Mai-hwig, our • former barber,- is now working in a barber shop in Fairmount, Minn. J. E. Russell and wife spent the Fourth at Sheffield, Iowa, returning from there last Monday. By the way, J. E. is petting a feed mill into his blacksmith shop. Bancroft is enjoying a building boom. The foundation for the Furstenberg building is being completed and carpenters will raise the J. E. Hudson store building next to the State Bank, this week. Jack Johnston has bought the Smith house that was on the Howe 40 acre tract west of town and has moved it to his lob north of Mer- rifleld's dwelling. Alcorn and Bronson are putting on a large addition to the hardware store formerly owned by J. A. Campbell. Booming! Why, yes, and it will keep right on booming, too. Little Dean Cruse, son of T. F. Cruse, of German township, died on Sunday evening last, of whooping cough. The little oue was about one year old and was a very bright child. The afflicted parents have the sympathy of all in this their sore affliction. The funeral was held from the Baptist church in Bancroft and a large number of relatives and friends of the family of the deceased were present. Rev. W. F. Laidloy conducted the funeral ceremony. Prof. G. F. Barslou, of Wesley, was in the city yesterday visiting friends. Prof. Barslou is a candidate for superintendent of schools of Kossnth county and wo know of no man in the county who combines the ability and experience in school matters that Prof. Barslou possesses. Ho began going to the county schools of Kossuth county at ten years iof age and at sixteen he began his career as a teacher. He never enjoyed the privilege of a high school nor college, but in sp'ite of this ho has secured oho of the highest prizes to be won in Iowa, namely, a state certificate Ho lias taught S5 terms in Kossuth county and 10 terms in Hancock county and lias held the principalship at LuVerne, Britt and Wesley, where ho is now the principal- He is a representative teacher and educator of Kossuth county and will rank with or above any teacher in Kossuth, and we, believe the republican party will • select him as their standard bearer for tins office of superintendent. If they do ho undoubtedly will be the next superintendent which we hope will be the caso. Grain is good, grass is fair, and corn is as far along as it usually is this time of the year. The prospects are good on all hands. MUITALO JTOKK. . BUFFALO FOBK, JULY B.—Miss Rose Farrow spent the past week with her sister who lives at Bancroft. Miss Etta Randall closes her school in the Fox district this week. Miss Laura Stow visited her brother and sister at Buffalo Fork a few days last week.

Miss Rose McNeil, Vico-Prcs., Mrs. Phelps, Mrs. McWhorter, Myrtle Fox and Helen Eddy, Sec., Mrs. Will Davison, Treas., Elmer Chipnian.

Manley and youngest daughter spent a few days at Fail-mount, Minn. Willie Grover is very sick. Ho has quinsy and some trouble of the spine. Dr. Garfield is attending him. LOTTS CREEK. LOTTS CHEEK, JULY 9.—The Fourth is over and everybody is tired. Lotts Creek was divided up between Algona, Whittemore and Jess Jackson's. L. H. Taylor was at Jess Jackson's and drove Roy Thorn in the trotting race against an Armstrong horse that couldn't keep up by trotting, so was run the last half and came in a loser by twelve' feet. L. A. also took second with his running horse. Mr. Challin has his new barn enclosed and Charlie Poinpe has his raised. The Lotts Creek blacksmith shop is now moved down to the creamery., Mr. Cook, who was over in Lotts Creek two w'e'eks ago looking up insurance, went home with the report "'that L. Ai Taylor had them all insured. There are a few left yet but L. A. is after tiiem. . Remember,'L. A. Taylor is in 1 'th'e b'i- c'ycle business. He'can sell, with' binding guarantee, either wood or steel rims, weight 39 and 30 Ibs., .geared to any number of inches, for §50. If wood rims are desired, one dollar extra. FEKTON. FKNTON, JULY 9, 1S95.—J. Newell Sr. has just put down a drilled well, .and the Fen ton Co-operative Creamery ,is also putting one in, Smith, of Bancroft, having the job. Miss Edith Wagner closed her school in the Newell district last Friday. Andrew Staley has got a new buggy and the question is, ''What is he up to now?" Harvest is near and the people have as yet got. no twine. Miss Esther Wander and her sister, May, of Clermont, Iowa, are visiting relatives in these parts. They took in the Fourth at Algona, Lawrence has the mail route now. He began carrying the mail July Snd. A balloon passed over Fenton on the evening of the Fourth, It was -passing north. Mfti-ft Totvft Oft Blacltsmltlis. Buft Monitor: W. H. Shaffer, while pounding iron on Monday, got a hot seal e into his left eye. It was very painful and lays him off from work for a spell. He thinks, however, that it will hot prove serious. While we are on this subject we will say that the young man who worked for Shaffer last summer and who got his eye burned in the same way, is now at Swea City, but he lost the sight of that eye. It All Depends. Sioux Falls Republican: An Emlnets- burg girl found a package of love letters that had been written to her mother by her father before they were married. The daughter saw that she could have a little sport and read them to her mother, substituting her own name for that of her mother and a fine young man for that of her father. The mother jumped up and down in her chair, shifted her feet, seemed terribly disgusted and forbade her daughter having anything to do with a young man who would write such sickening and nonsensical stuff to a girl. When the young girl handed the letter to her mother to road the house became so still that you could hear the gras* growing in the back yard. Great Piece Of Strategy. Beacon: Comic artists missed something exceedingly rich on the shore of Spirit Lake the other day, if the situation is correctly outlined to the Beacon. A tent in which beer is said to have been kept harbored several persons. Outside were two thirsty souls who had been denied further potations. About this time along comes a cow trailing a rope thirty or forty feet Ions. Having no use for beer, she "mosies" down into the drink, fills her capacious stomach and saunters back. A bright idea suddenly struck one of the disappointed outsiders. Catching the loose end of the rope he attaches it firmly to the tent, and then set a dog on the cow. With a mad rush the eow set out for tall grass, and in less time than it takes to think that tent was snatched from its moorings and joined the furious procession. The situation can be better imagined than described in cold typo. A PeroiUcul Visitation. Ledyard Leader: A "business" house at Ledyard is "embarrassed but not closed." A bolt of Mulct Lighting dropped from a clear business sky on Thursday and a citizen is absent at the county seat. Early after noon Sheriff Sampson and his deputy drove up on the blind side of our."blind pig" and walked in and claimed Albert, Wakoley and three kegs of beer as their own. There • was nothing for'Al. and his trinity of beer to do but to go along with the visitors and abide the outcome. Meantime our citizens are hot spitting cotton nor placing individual orders; neither are we resorting to palace box cars to drown sorrow or generate mirth: The usual order of things is on. While regret is general ' at the enforced absence of one of our "active," business men, the town keeps a steady onward march to the music of hammers and saws and the rumbling of vehicles bringing and taking products and unloading pleasure seekers and land hunters. Later we learn that, when ar- rainged before Justice Clark, Wakeley was fined $100 and. costs. Default in payment will entitle him to thirty days in the county jail. An effort will be made to have a portion of this fine remitted, in which event the balance will be paid. It is hard to keep a man away from his business in a busy time, such as Ledyard 'is now having. The Leader makes frantic appeal for remission and release. •• A fifie pi-o'g'rftmme has been arfaftged fot this most popular of STottherti Iowa Summer resorts, i&cludifttf lectures by Rev.
