Hopkins threshed 5 acres or less of oats last week, lu 1% hours, ami tho yield was 110 bushels per acre. Lamuth & Riley did tho job, with their steam self-feod thresher. The machine measure was 328 bushels, but tho half-bushel trips automatically at 21 pounds, so that the actual excess of weight on every machine bushel is 22 pounds, and this gives 222 bushels to bo added, the corrected yield being 550 bushels. The ground is easily measured by anyone, who has any doubt, being in a square piece, but it will bo found to bo less rather than more than five acres. Last Friday Gottlieb Bonn had the misfortune to have throe large ricks of wheat consumed by (ire caused by a spark from a passing train, the 3 o'clock freight. It was quite a day for iires along tho Northwestern, four or five others being reported. Fred Miller (inds that he has raised a lot of Russian thistles this season, the seed coming in his 1lax.

The Miraculous Escape of a Litile From t>eath. Fort Dodge Messenger: The passen* gers on the M. &St. L. train north wero startled Monday when about thirty miles south of Fort Dodge by the sudden application of the air brakes which brought the train to an unceremonious halt with many bumps and jolts. Engineer Shields and liis fireman came running back, the former saying that they had run over a baby. A hasty examination showed no signs of the body but the engineer was sure H.was there as it had been on the track and had just started to crawl oil as the engine approached; cutting oil its legs. Just then a small object in the weeds back aways, attracted attention and hurrying to it they foil fid a four year old child which proved to be unharmed, but on the tips of each of its shoes were the marks of the wheels which had missed the baby by that narrow margin. The baby seemed rather embarassed by the attention of so maiiy people and would not tell its name, so after safely placing it In. the cafe of friendly sti'angera the train Started on again carrying as thankful a lot of people as ever witnessed an escape out of tho very jaws of death. Sunday Night Hobbery. Leader: Sunday night after the doors had closed and tho family and guests had retired for tho night, tho proprietor of LcdyarcVs popular restaurant had his early slumbers broken by a noise which unmistakably told that some one was in the rooms below, and, as everything had been locked before retiring, there was but one conclusion and that was that a burglar had gained an entrance; Summoning his trusty and nervy clerk "Chuck" Livingston, and armed to the teeth, this plucky brace 'Of fellows descended the stairway with the velvety steps of footpads'. On reaching the foot of tho stairs a Scrub Clubs Should Keep Shy. Gormania Standard: The game of ball Tuesday between Algona and Woodward from near DCS Moincs was played and won by our county seat boys. Algona has a good nine and these scrub, traveling teams lind it a task to do them up. 'Rah. Better Acquaintance Desired. Buffalo Center Tribune: Hon. S. S.

Rosenau living a mile southwest of'town had, a patch of 31>£ rods of ground in oats which yielded strong 21% bushels by weight.. This is a rate of ICO bushels per acre. Any one doubting the figures are invited to investigate. JLdatlertllevolvcr, Careless' Youth. ' Ft. Dodge Messenger: A revolver \n> the hands of a careless youth is responsible for a bullet lodging in the foot of Carl : Roper, the little son of Mr. and Sirs. W. A. Roper. Carl, with a party of boys, went swimming Saturday and was sitting on the bank of tho river when a bullet fired from a revolver in the hands of Willie Norton, on the opposite side of Mie river, lodged in his foot. According lo-th'6 story of the other boys, Willie said, "'See me hit that boy on the other side: of the river," at the same time pulling the trigger. And sure enough ho did hit'him. The bullet was extracted by a physican and there is expected nothing serious to result. Whether in fun or not it is rather a serious jo-ko and a good moral which every youth should not fail to heed. There is no use for boys of that age to carry a revolver and parents should be more careful. . council of war was held as to which should Icad-Ahc charge on tho intruder. Hanna led the" march and in peremptory tones demanded tho full name and.address of the porson' : thus bent on pilfering his honest ducats. It was dark and they could not .see. "Chuck" was flanking Hanna and managed to keep his employer between him and the burglar. "Chuck" had a revolver in each hand so lie supposed, and thought ho would take a shot into the dark to see what effect it would have on the burglar. Ho pulled the trigger to. thp right-hand Weapon and found it a large brass faucet. In tin attempt to discharge the other weapon it was found to be a lemon squeezer. At this Juncture tho burglar began to .weaken, so he obeyed the command given by Hanna early in tho melee. H.o said, "My name is Prod Freeman, ray address is Ledyard, my hands arc up. I am onO'Of your boarders. : I got in late, borrowed-a key to get a bite to oat, am through my. meal and wo will all go to bod." George and "Chuck" could have been bought for peanut prices. Prostrated by- Lightning. Wesley Reporter: During the stona last Friday as A. G. Welch was loading hay on the bottom south of town a bolt of lightning struck tho ground a few feet from him, the shock being so great that fora short time it prostrated both him and his team. Time Drags When They Linger. Jiurt Monitor: It is no doubt a good thing that tho teachers' institute don't hold forth at Algona the year round. Only at the close of the first week we heard one of our young men say with a deep, heavy sigh, that "this week had seemed a month to him." The Orleaiis.Closed. A Spirit Lake special of the 15thsays: The prohibitionists.of Spirit Lake had the wine rooms of the Hotel Orleans searched and, Abel Brothers, thepropriet-. ors, closed tho hotel, to-night.

The hotel-will not bo opened again this, season and never again until there is some protection. : The-Beacon speaks reservedly concerning the abrupt closing of the hotel. It says: . The Hotel OiOeans closed yesterday morning. The season has boon measurably successful, though financial returns are not what they should be . in view of the excellent record of the management.
