A very sad accident occnred at the Capt. Jeansen place last Sunday morning about daylight. John Gallion and Oliver Trask were out in the gray dawn of morning hunting and the two men were walking side by side when Trask put a shell in his gun and went to lock the gun when the gun discharged and the charge went completely through Gallion's leg, cutting the large artery and shattering the bone. Trask asked Gallion what he should do and Gallion said to go and tell Bob (who Is his brother) and get some water which Trask did but when Bob arrived John was just gasping his last, having bled to death. The wound was of such a nature that even if a physician had been present with his Instruments it would have been very doubtful if his life could have been saved. The deceased was universally bo- loved and respected and a large number of teams went to the Jeansen place to escort the hearse bearing tho corpse. The body was placed in the Masonic Hall where it was viewed by hundreds of the friends of the deceased last Monday evening and Tuesday morning. Tho funeral was from tho M. E. church yesterday morning at 10 o'clock a. m. and the remains were taken lo the Portland cemetery and interred beside the remains of the father of the deceased. The family have tho sympathy of a large number of friends in their affliction. tickets to and from Europe. DIKEOXORS-n, H. Richmond. N. E. Sheridan, Mayne.C. E. Mallory, J. N.

E. church last Wednesday evening ocurred one of the most prominent social events of the season in the marriage of 0. L. Harper and Miss Ernma H. Smith. The church was beautifully decorated for the occasion. Rev. T. S. Cole, pastor of the INI. E. church, officiated. About 100 guests attended the reception at the residence of the bride's parents, welch took place immediately after the ceremony. After the reception ] the guests repaired to the Globe hotel, where the tables fairly groaned with the good things provided by the landlord. The social feature of the evening was also very lively and pleasant. The groom is one of Bancroft's best young business men,-and ho bears the reputation of being an honest, careful and Christian' man. The bride has been reared in this neighborhood and is a product of Kossuth county and the people of Bancroft hold her In high esteem and wish the young conp)e all the'joy and happiness possible. tcem of Bancroft people was proven, by the large number of beautiful and costly presents which were presented the young couple, and we join in wishing them prosperity.

He will be a full fledged gardener yet. The public school, under Prof* Ehlers ably assisted by Miss Pettibone and Mrs. Plerson, Is doing good work, although somewhat crowded. With a red-hot republican corresponding for the Courier and the only populist In town writing for the Republican these two Algona papers had better keep a weather eye open on their politics.—We&ley Reporter. Now Mac. this has gone just far enough. Simply because we are timid and small is no sign that wo will allow anyone to libel tis in that way. If you don't want a mammoth law suit on your hands and our prayer for eternal Vohgence on your head, you had better not insert another Item like the above. We let the Courier man speak for himself. Mr. and Mrs. John Doll departed for their home, in Illinois, last Friday. Hollenbeck and Thomas have begun to buy hogs.

On October 15th will occur tho anniversary of the mother of Father II. C. Eckhart of the Catholic church. The Wesley correspondent to. the Courier would undoubtedly make a good politician for he is excellent on the dodge. He refused to make any reply to us last weok in regard to the sale of the school bonds but satisfied himself by asking himself "Who is that go-off-half-cocked-correspondent of the REPUBLICAN anyway?" Well, whoever we may be we never had a woman to call us "An old rod horse." Wo are glad to note that G. W. Eddy will soon bo able to come up town. The furniture for the new State Bank building arrived last week. Tho bank vill be moved to its now quarters some imoduring,, the first days of October.

Will Kennedy is driving tho dray for F. N. Rogers while Fred serves his country as juror in the district court. Pete Bostrack, like Grover, says three of a kind beats two pair, therefore ho is smiling all over about that little 10 pound lady that come to his house Sunday night to take up her abode with him and Mrs. Bostrack for some years to come. Mother vnd child are doing well. Harrison. HAKKISON, Sept. 30—High wind and very heavy rain visited this section on tho night of the twenty-first but did no damage other than to scatter boards, hay and straw.

The atcplievson Boycott. WESLEY, Sept. 2.3,—Dear RKPVBWCAN; Two weeks ago you wondered why the Standard QJ1 Company boycotted G. 8. MePherson and would not sell him any oil.
