Abstracts of Title Real Estate, Loans, and Insurance. Wesley* WESLEY, July 16.—Our two new elevators are now nearly completed, and they look like business. Charlie Jones will run one of them and Fred Anderson the other. The foundation for the State Bank building is about ready, and the framing is nearly done. This will be a two-front and two story building and will be veneered with brick. One good thing about Wesley's building operations, they are carried on almost entirely by Wesley men. At some times in the neighborhood of thirty Wesley men have been at work upon the elevators. This is the policy that Wesley believes in. The school board will soon have the plans and specifications of the new. school building completed, and then they will advertise for bids to put it up. The structure will cost in the neighborhood of 89,000. The board have bought a block in Barrett's College addition for a site for the new building. The location is good and the ground sightly. The board will sell the old site for more than enough to pay for the new, and the district will have a whole block in place of a half block. Wesley will put in a system of waterworks this season. Gco. Snyder has bought the Stiulcr & Mathias general stock, as well as John Ward's hay plant and press and will run both. He will put his two stocks in one. Crops in this neighborhood look very lino and the prospects, both oC farmers and of business men arc good. Prof. Ehlers, of Afton,-Iowa, succeeds Mr. Barslou as Principal of our school. The intermediate) department conducted by Mrs. A. J. Pearson, while Miss Pottiboiui, of Algona, will continue in charge of the primary. Yes, Wesley will give Frank Barslou a solid and hearty support for county superintendent. He is worthy of the office and it should be given him.

Rog' Henry Durant Tells of Aerolites and Gives Interesting Facts.-—!' he Ue^otit . Astrdttoitter. < ' About the 10th of Atigust nefct <vill occur one of the annual meteoric showers sometimes incorrectly ca.flei| shooting stars. On any clear night a few can be seen..but the annual showers 'Occur April 4-11-17-25-August 8-11, October 15, November 15-17. When a meteor falls to the earth it is called an Aerolite. Meteors revolve around the snn in regular orbits like tde planets, but usually their orbits are more eccentric. Some of the-orbits are calculated. Meteors, so to speak, are wrecked comets. Some wrecks have occurred quite recently, and so far has astronomical mathematics advanced that theitimeof the wreck of others has been computed. They are in rings and are quite evenly distributed in most cases. The most important showers occur once in about thirty four years. The next one is looked for about 1803. The last one that occured was expected abou t 1800. Temporary observatories were established all over the country, but in the U. S. people were disappointed, while in England there was a very fine display. Areolltes are of groat importance to scientists, as they give some idea of the universe. So far about twenty four elements have been found in them, all wnll known as belonging to our earth; at least no new clement has bei-n found. There are about seventy known elements on o-urearth. Tho combination of iron found in Arcolites is different from any known on our earth, although wo have an almost endless combination. The brilliant color of the ruby, which has sold for even more than the diamond, is aluminium colored by iron. Wo never see meteors until they enter our atmosphere and are ignited by friction. Some move about twenty-six miles a second, the earth about eighteen. They ar° seen as high as one hundred and, fifty; miles. Asa person can hardly live miles, some idea can be formed of how light or rare our atmosphere must bo at such a height, yet it almost instantly burns thorn up, owing to friction. The science of Astronomy above all others loads us to a belief in a Divine .Creator or ruler of tho 'Universe. An Astronomer can no more dispense with a Creator or ruler than an intelligent person could believe if told that our railroad system just happened by accident. If. ho had never seen it before, how soon would he find by observation that it had an architect, and tho more lie investigated the more fully would hobo .confirmed in his opinion.. To the human family all else pales before the thought, is this life all, or only a start for one of greater grandeur? Will I never meet my dear friends again? Is the longing dream for something better than this beautiful world of ours never to be gratified? Are the others'to be lost? Is tho devotion of tho mother who sacrifices health, and many times life, by her demotion to her family, not to bo .ijewarded? We recoil at the thought.

J, Purdy, pf this city, rift*-**—• That J00 table of canne4 goods js the at Walker By f*f*-«-r-s a gpeeialty was written by a poet long ago. How does this compare with: "Eye hath not seen'or heart conceived the beauty or riches in sto.-e for those who serve the Lord." All study and researches lead to the firm con 1 - viction of a God of sublime power, goodness, justice and mercy entirely beyond our conception. I cannot be orthodox. I say to all orthodox,-stick to your belief; you cannot bo wrong; free thinkers may. "No other love like a mother's love ever hath shone." How true, a mother never deserts you. However you may look you arc.always beautiful to hoi 1 . If you com- rnit.a crime she never deserts you, her. love is pure and unselifih. "Mother come back from-that echoiess shore." Hosv often does this thought;occur to us when selfish, unkind treatment we receive makes us feel as if life was not worth, living, nor would it be were it not for oiir hope of another and of the goodness and mercy of our Divine Creator. Without, a hope for something beyond this. life, it would be to a sensitive sympathetic?, person one of misery. Do we fully realize the value and importance of our creation? To an intelligent being his or her .individuality is more than all else. Should we not worship and adore our Creator who has conferred on us such a blessing, should not study to obey all his laws and constantly return thanks for such an unspeakable boon? Was it ever known for a person to regret a Virtuous and noble life? Do they nob most always regret past errors? What does the past pleasures of this life amount to when oil our death bed if we have no hopo in tho future? Why can we not realise itjiow as well as then? But hope is eternal, Uod is love, This life only gives us a conception of a beauty and grandeur we can never soo here, • That the future may bo of much greater beauty as well, as enjoyment is the hope of most of all. Apart from all other evidence, the facb that a vicious life renders the person unhappy and many around him is a positive evidence that there is another beyond this, I refer to the fae.b of the existence of good and evil. The Bible and Testament, however mutilated and distorted by factions and creeds, bears unmistakable evidence that it is an emanation from our Divine Creator, a,s ib transcends all possible human knowledge. All intelligent people feel or know that they are capable of a much g-roatei' knowledge or development than they can • ever obbain hero.

Under this system a regular election is. held in each township, polls are opened between certain hours and voters registered as they vote. Each voter votes for his choice among tho various candidates for sheriff, treasurer, etc., and tho ballots arc all taken to the county seat and counted, the ones receiving tho largest H timber of votes being declared tho nominees and their names ordered printed on the official ballots at the general election. ''No nomination could be fairer . and !tl is to bo'hoped that every republican in the county will vote at tho primary election, and none but republicans will be allowed to vote. If 'township committeemen who have charge of tho various polling places will see to it that the elections are conducted fairly on tho start and that all republicans in their townships are given due notice of the time, place and rules for holding tho elections, the system .cannot help but prove highly satisfactory and for the best interests of the party in tho county.
