Both parties are from near Ledyard and the groom is a prosperous farmer of that place. There is quite a little romance connected with this wedding, it seems that when the bride was christened in tho old country the groom's mother officiated as god mother and the couple have been reared together since infancy. In due course of time the groom left for America and when he became able he went back to the country of his birth and claimed his bride and they camo to America and were married as above stated. Success to them. The scribe had the pleasure of attending the opening exercises of tho Normal Institute last week as well as to see some of the routine work. The opening exercises were very appropriate and beantl- ful especially the response and the address of welcome by Miss Richards of Burt. The Normal Is one of tho largest ever held in the county and the teachers are very enthusiastic and are working hard. Wo believe that with all tho preparation and hard work the teacher of today has to go through to got a certificate that they are entitled to higher wages than they are receiving at tho present time. Quite a number of town people went out to Holloway's 40 acre tract west of town-Monday to witness the operation of a new Stevens thresher and stacker that had just been brought from Indiana' at the instance of Mr. Holloway. The 'machine is fed by a canvas and cuts bands itself by a system of round knives slm- iliar to those found on a pulverizer. The The machine also stacks its own straw by means of a long pipe through which the machine forces wind and the wind forces the straw out at a high pressure. The machine cleans grain well, saves the work of four men, and is quite a novelty besides. At the regular meeting of the City Council last Monday evening Wni. "Thiel was elected night watchman, and a ten mill tax for contingent expenses was levied as was also a five mill tax to pay interest on waterworks bonds and provide a sinking fund to pay the bonds off -atf maturity. The city treasury is rather low. The Recorder was instructed to notify the C. &N. W. R. R. Co. that they put in a sidewalk on the south side of maiiv street between their tracks. . : >> •' J. E. Russell, has now as finely equipped blacksmith shop as can be found in -Kosr suth county if indeed there is one to equal it. He has a new gasoline engine:^hat! furnishes the power for a trip hammer, iron and steel drill and an Emery wheel for polishing purposes. Ho makes a speciality of plow work and. lie can certainly draw out a plow lay farther and quicker .than by the old method. We are glad to see this new and labor saving device coming to the city. One of the prizes in the declamatory contest of the Normal class' of our High School on Tuesday night was one years subscription to the Observer. This prize was secured by Miss Ethel Carr.—Pleasanton (Kan.) Observer, August 3, 1895. Miss Carr's success will .be a source of •pride and pleasure to her Bancroft schoolmates and friends. West Bond claims to have the largest number of men in these parts who weigh 200 Ibs. or more. Now we dispute that for we casually counted up 20 men in Bancroft whoso avoirdupois reaches 200 or more pounds. Wo believe a careful canvass would show thirty of them hero. Rev. E. G. Vine preached two very good sermons at tho Baptist church last Sunday evening. The audience seemed to ap- preciau) them very much as the congregation was much larger in tho evening than in the morning. He preaches again next Sunday morning and evening. Reports still continue to come in of the largo crops. Some thought that reports of 100 bushels of oats to the acre was exaggerated but these people are being convinced of their truth every day. Wo never had such crops as this year. Bancroft cannot coax Swea City nor Ledyard to give them ti return game for the games played at these places earlier in the season. It is not more than fair that they give our boys return games as was their agreement. W. V. Wills closes his engagement as salesman in J, B, Johnson's store tomorrow and Roy Johnson will take his place behind the counter as he has decided not to return to school this fall. A. LyUe of Britt has been in the city for about a week attempting to organize a local carnp of the Modern Woodmen of America, Wo understand that he has been quite successful. Albert Mathwig, who worked in John' son's barber shop this spring, is now run' ning a shop of his own at Fairmont, Minn, and says he is doing a good business for a new shop. If you are engaged in a hazardous occupation go to J, A- Freeh and get an accident insurance policy in the standard Accident Cp., before you are hurt or djst ftbled. The Catholic people, will tomorrow celebrate their annual holiday of the As* sumption of the Blessed Virgin. The services will be the same as on Sundays.
