These with what were formerly here will find more than they can do. JLaud Buyers are Many. Register: At no time since our residence here have so many land seekers crowded into Bancroft. Kossuth crops are second to none, and prospective purchasers consider it tho best place to invest their money. Grave stisiiicioit at Whitteiitore. Whittcmofe Champion: In the normal school recently a young lady was assisting in a primary illustration and said, "Torn has seven childferi in the house," arid then she te-he-d* .after which the whole class te-he*d' { and finally a hearty ha-ha Was the result. The ladies' name has not been revealed but it seems probable that she must have a sweet-heart whose name is Tom, and thus this merriment Would be explained, A grave suspicion flits across the minds of some people, that the Tom who caused all this trouble, is our Tom, the Tom with curly hair; the Fourth of July orator, who runs a law-bottling establishment in tho Blue Front. What an absurd idea; Impossible! On the Hello Line. German fa Standard: The telephone poles have been set to this city and are rapidly on their way to Buffalo Center. The wire will be put up a week later, then the word "Hello" will echo and re-echo over the wires. Kyau Speaks tlie Truth. Ft. Dodge Messenger: J. J. Ryan of Algona, is looking after his Webster county business affairs.

T. Ferguson, Mrs. Grant Benchoter aud Mrs. John Weaver are going to take a much needed vacation and likewise make a visit buck to Ohio and New York. Mrs. Weaver intends to stop at their old home in Ohio, and Mrs. Ferguson and Mrs. Benschoter are going to Fulton county, N. Y. Gloversville is their destination. They will most likely be gone a month or six weeks. New York will have a goolc representation from Kossuth. Tho down- casters may be somewhat surprised, too, when they hear of the garden 'spot of towa, Kossuth county. Mrs. D. Rice contemplates a trip to her old hjmo in Herkimer county, N. Y. Miss Luella Cleary went home last Wednesday. Dr. Pride said she had a touch of typhoid fever. Hopes are entertained that she may speedily recover. Mr. Seelcy informs us that Oliyer Benschoter has so far recovered as to be able to walk down to his son Frank's place one day this week. D. Rico has inclosed his yard with a quite ornamental as well as useful woven wire fence. The Frost Record. Bancroft Register: The temperature in this part of the U. S. went so low the first of the week as to cause apprehension on account of frost. The earliest recorded killing frost, reported from the Bancroft signal service station, was on September 28,183(3. The average date of killing frosts here is October 4. A Safe Speculation. Monitor: T. H. Connor on Monday bought a drove of 50 young porkers from Wm. Cooper and sent them up to his big farm in Se'ncca to be fed. He paid 82.50 a head for them and they will make him good money. The hog brings the farmers bigger money than anything else. Looks Like a Whopper, But— Burt Monitor; Big yields of grain aro rife in this county and this part of Iowa this season, and we have all read of some extraordinary big yields, but we have one to report that knocks the spots off of anything yet reported. It will at least come up to that report over at Geruiania in which a man was given 100 bushels of oats per acre. Mr. Peterson, who lives north of Frank Stewart's, northeast of Burt, has just threshed out some wheat that went 04 bushels to the acre, machine measure, and which weighed out 03 bushels. This would soem to be a whopper, but it is vouched for by parties who disbelieved the report and went and seen tho ground measured. Our yield of grain this year surprises the natives. Skeletons From way Back. It is not generally known that the former city burial ground, before Oakland was laid out, was in tho north part of town, north of the Catholic church. About 1850 and 18(50 this was used and when the cemetery was changed a number of the bodies of unknown persons were left where they had been placed. Today the men in tho employ of the city, while cutting down north Lemp street in front of Wm. Robinson's house dug up four skeletons, all in what medical men would call "a good state of preservation." The laborers were considerably startled at their Iirst find and had visions of the solving of a mysterious murder but when they learned they were working on an old cemetery they soon grew so familiar with tho idea that they would pull out bones and grinning skulls as coolly as so many clods of earth. Bloomers Sized Up by Bailey. Britt Tribune: The bloomer so much talked of is a fact. We saw 'em bloom; He Will Move to Algona. E. R. Cook has invested in Algona property. He has bouglit the D. S. Miller property near ths fair grounds, which comprises about ton acres and goes by the faciiiating name of "Idle-wild." Mr. Cook has a choice half-section farm just northwest of town, and as to whether or not he intends to quit farming we are not informed. Most likejy though he has a selling price on the farm.

Threshing is progressing slowly on account of wet weather. Potato digging time is almost here; early digging is all right if the potatoes are dry when dug. Beans seem to be struck with blight and there will not be more than a half crop. Haying is not nearly done and farmers are realizing the fact that they have more work on their hands than they can do. There was a pleasant dance at F. R. Bunkofske's new barn last Wednesday night. All enjoyed themselves till the wee small hours when one young lady went to sleep and walked off down stairs without taking "the trouble of following the stairway. A bruised face and a skinned ear is the result. Cyclone Charley (better known as C. A. Olson) was out to singing school last Tuesday night and we think he did not go straight home from the school for ho did not get up next morning in time for breakfast. Quarterly meeting at Corwith and Lu- Verne last Suuday. C. A, Olson was at LuVerne Friday and is there again today. Fred Will was at LuVerne on Monday. The coon became an elephant last June when the frost cut the corn. We heard a farmer say that he guessed it was a coon case with the corn, and now ho says that the farmers' have an elephant on their hands, the crops are so large. Lotts Creek. LorrsCHKEK, Aug. 20.—N. C. Taylor is very sick with tho quinsy, and his sou Earnest has had the typhoid fever for about six weeks. Theirs, is an afflicted family. Fred Thorno, Mrs. Matt Dal/iel and Mrs. Wm. Strang were called to Waukegan, Illinois, by a telegram saying their sister was dying. They went last Friday. Thos. Rich arrived home, Monday, from a visit to Illinois. Mr. Meine has built a new granary, and John Markgraff and John Vigdal have put up now windmills. Lotts Creek crops are a match for anything in the county. Oats generally goes 00 to 70 bushels to the aero and wheat 40 bushels. Liberal Contributions. Advance: They say that the young man who passes the contribution box in one of the churches in Fort Dodge, took from his pocket as he thought a quarter to start the ball rolling. But it wasn't. It was a lozenge with, "Will you marry meV" in great big letters. And as he stuck the plate under tho noses of tho people, a young lady dropped in another, but smaller-lozenge, also in pink trimming, which read "Name the day." of this The Republican and State Register, The Republican and Inter Ocean, , The Republican and 1.1 Tribune, $1,85 $1,85 $1,85 UNIQN, Aug. 27,—Herman Pau has a now windmill up, Johnson being the man. thskt put it up- Wm.

Bloomers Heard From. Reporter: The bloomer base ball nine were at Emmetsburg on Tuesday and played against a picked up.nine. The game drew a crowd but according to report was not "good ball." Some of the members of tho nine got a little loud during the evening. Elmoro Eye: Tho so-called Boston Bloomer sherbase ball team, who showed off at the county seat recently, played at Algona last Monday. They make a fine object for comment, The Telephone at JLetlyarfl, Leader; "Hello!"' - "What?" "Who is it?" "Well!" "Exactly!" "Oh!" "How is Ledyard?" "Lively!" "What Is it?" It is a telephone and Ledyard is in it. The poles were set last -Thursday. The office will be at Dr. Dimlap's drug store— a very convenient place— and the public will find it a great convenience. We are not advised as to just how soon connections will be made so we can chin the brethren of neighboring towns over the wire, but it will not bo long, Ledyard corrals every desirable thing that comes aipng. striped and bifurcated like thunder. From thekhees up the'skirts are twins until they reach the balloon. When they cease to be divorced tho wideness of the whiCh- ness excites much admiration from the voluminosity of their muchness. It is then attached- to a belt encircling tho waist and the thing is done. There were curly headed blondes with 25c gate receipt smiles, dark haired brunettes with givea- dam beau-catchers fluttering in the breeze. Petites and Jumbos. The pitcher could throw a ball where she had a mind to, and did it twice. Sho could also catch a ball without an apron. Several really good plays were made, and they spit on their hands and rubbed sand on them like an amateur who . has fanned out. It was pleasant to see her twirl the pig skin with a faraway look In her eyes that plainly said look out everybody. She is a Norman about 13 hands high, blocky, arched ed neck, short in the back, reached mane, and wide between the names'; sired by Goldsmith Maid, out of Wedlock, iirst dam the Umpire, and went at a 2:10 gate at an early age without' urging. The shortstop was piquant. We don't know what that means but are confident that's tho word. She did some good work when long steps were requisite. The iirst base woman did effective work for a cross-eyed lady aud stopped several balls while looking over her shoulder. The fielding was exceptionally good but would have been much more effective if viewed through an opera glass. The score stood 99 to 100 in favor of Algona. The boys would have madi, another score but none of them had ever ran from a girl before and looking backward whilej-unning made them dixxy.
