The majority of farmers are through picking corn. The general complaint is scarcity of crib room. Fred Miller went to Cherokee one day this week on business. Quito an excitement was caused in this locality on Wednesday by the runaway of two teams, Mr. Maine's and Willie Blake's.

Still it was no laughing matter. Fred Scholcr is improving slowly. He can walk on his broken limb some. Geo. Holman thinks he will have another winter's work with the wood that the cyclone tore down.

Hanna has been sick with ty* phoid fever at the home of his fatheHn* law, H, H. Cormick, at Live'rmore, for the past eight weeks. The LuVeriio News quotes his brother, Geo. W. Hanna, as saying that Phil, is the leanest, lankest, scrawniest, poorest spec!men of humanity that ho ever set eyes on. Orve Winset, a young man of 28 who^o home was with his parents in Summit township, Clay couuty, was found drowned in a well on Tuesday of last week. Ho had been missing since Sunday forenoon, when ho set out to attend the neighborhood church, as was supposed. His family was at church, and noted his absence, and that night some search was made ou tho young man's farm, which adjoined his father's, even the well being peered into, without discovering the body. The search was kept up Monday and Tuesday, and tho body was finally located by tho use of a hook and line. Thero was strong indication of suicide. Tho body plunged head down and stuck fast in eight feet of water. The well was thirty feet deep. Miss Jessie Arms, of Spencer, has gone to Siberia, where she will labor as a missionary. Her ship leaves New York on Dec. 7th. Rev. R. H. Dolliver, formerly of the Northwest Iowa conference, but how pastor of a church near Chicago, preached at Fort Dodge a week ago Sunday, having remained in town after his brother's wedding,' and was given the compliment of a great audience. Tho Messenger says: The sermon was scholarly, eloquent, and con- viciugly logical, and was listened to with closest attention from beginning, to close. Tho friends of Mr. Dolliver pronounced the sermon one of the best ever heard from the pulpit of tho First M. E. church. Mr. Dolliver has a host of friends here who wish and predict for him highest success in his chosen calling. Tho daily papers had a special from Webster City a few days ago which said: Mrs. Acy Van Syke has been an invalid, unable to move from her bed or a chair without being carried, for years. Slie is a devoted member of the Methodist church, and during all the-timo of her affliction she has prayed for relief. Ten days ago shefeltjan inspiration that her prayer was to be answered. That same day Mr. and Mrs. Heslop, of this city, returned from Chicago. While there they had an audience with one of Chicago's "Messiahs," and they were so impressed with tho way he was healing tho persons who came before him by prayer that immediately upon their return they gave Mrs. Van Syke the money to defray all her expenses to the city. She left in her helpless condition by herself, and the first word that came a few days ago was that after an audience and prayer with tho healer she was able to walk. To-day more information conies that she is nearly cured. For ton ye ars before she has not walked, and the people here who are familiar with her case look upon the cure as something of a miracle. The Emmetsburg Reporter says: There was a stir about town last Saturday morning with the report that Homer Kelle.- had gone out hunting and shot a deer, but on closer investigation it was found that he had shot Bob, a taine deer in Col. Ormsby,s park, and the deer has been hang' ihg in Rolther's market since. Venison for Thanksgiving is quite a treat in these days. Dr. Owen, of Chicago, chief surgeon for the Illinois Central and Northwestern railroads, and one of the most celebrated surgeons in the country, was in Ft. Dodge recently to consult with local surgeons over the case of John F. Buncombe. It is said that it was discovered that there was a fracture of the thigh bone, within the ball and socket joint. It is almost impossible to get at the injured part and there is danger of a permanent shortening and stiffening of the limb, which would re~ q,utro the use of crutches. OOUNTY NEWS NOTES, Cal. Wilson, one of the prominent men of Ledyard, died Sunday night, after a long illness. Typhoid fever complicated with other maladies was the fatal cause. Two cases of diphtheria were located in a Ledyard hotel one day last week. The children were quarantined in a part of the hotel. Walker Bros, have bought the G. C. Hauna restaurant at Ledyard. One of the nrembcrs of the new firm is the popular preacher of that name who is stationed at Ledyard, but the business will be conducted by his brother. W. A. Chipman, of Portland township, has just moved his family to Burt, where they will make their homo. J. M.. Gray, of Portland township, has sold his farm for 335 per acre. Anybody who had the pleasure of a drive over the north end of Kossuth last summer must have noticed that it was a great flax region. There were flax fields up there hundred of acres in size, and probably not a few covered entire sections of land. Flax being the most profitable first year crop, the extent of the fields w,as on- ' ly limited by the new breaking. 'S\vea City is a great flux center, being located in the heart of a new farm settlement, and so the proprietors of the toW| 'mill have acted wisely in locating-their plant there, where the supply of flax straw would seem to be almost unlimited. It will make every aero of land in that neighborhood more valuable. \ The LuVerne people begin to realize the need o-f a town hall. The News coiuplains that there is no place for public entertainments. LuVerne is ahead in a good many things, and probably the town will not long be behind in this. \ Michael Tesmer, of LuVerne, died at 65 years of ago and was buried from the Lutheran church. His wife, sister and three daughters survive him. Meat Market! Great Reduction in Time to California.
