Sleepy Mose, Pringle's horse from Buffalo Center, ran a 100 rod dash against Grover, Chris Boettcher's colt and beat him by a neck. The agreement was for a "lap start," and In fact Sleepy Mose got nearly his full length the start. He also had the advantage of firm ground, while Grover went into the mud above the hoofs, and was bothered by a strange rider. Grover made the quickest time, as ho gained on Sleepy Mose and at tho finish his nose was on .the latter's shoulder. In a little longer race ho would have won, and Pringle refused to run another race next morning and double the stakes, which would have made it $r>0 a side. A number of Algona men took in the race and considerable money in the connection. With the organization of the North Kossuth Fair Association and the making of a permanent track, Bancroft will be more of a racing center than in the past, especially as about all the good horses in the county are tributary to this metropolis. There will be an interesting ball game here Tuesday, between the Bancroft and Swea City nines. Bancroft is likely to be at a serious disadvantage, as many of her best players will be out of town. It is not because they are afraid of having their eyes knocked out cither. n , Dr. Paul went to Algona today to consult with Dr. Konolick in an Algona case. Chas. Seaberg's handsome new residence west of the railroad track is now ncaring completion. B. W. Haggard and other Algonans were visitors in Bancroft Monday.

PI/UM CHEEK, May 5.—While Charles Godden was trying to burn some stubble in a field adjacent to the town line bridge the destroying ilame got beyond his control and set fire to the town line bridge and the structure was completely destroyed. The bridge was across the Des- Moines river on the line between Plum Creek and Portland townships, near the Ellis McWhorter and Don Paine places, and was a substantial wooden bridge, which it will cost the county considerable money to replace. Grant Benschoter and daughter and Grandpa Orrin Calkins start, Wednesday, for the west. Here's wishing them much joy on their California visit.

Warner and Dell Ferguson aim to take a trip to the lakes soon for fish, and naught else will do. Plum Creek plum trees in blossom the last of April! Never saw that in this country before, and the blue grass pastures are so that the cattle can live and thrive on them the first of May. Warner has his rocks all in piles, out of the way of plow or mower. Any one wishing to buy rock should call around. J. E. Stacy went north this morning with a load of trees for his Plum Creek farm. Fred Miller's masons start today on the foundation for hi* barn. as usual, but not so frolicsome. R. Moore Carpenter, the owner and first editor of the Ledyard .Leader, is again in control of the paper. Mr. Carpenter is a very capable newspaper man and a fine writer. The Standard reports land in the Germania neighborhood advancing. Scott Wickham was offered £32 an acre for a piece of land in section 12. The Esthervillo Vindicator says of the park work going on in that ambitious city: A large force is energetically at work upon the public square. The sod has been turned over and the surf ace is being pulverized and leveled. Ditches for conducting mains to the fountains are being dug. The work will be pushed as rapidly as possible for the season is already late and the seed and tree planting must be done soon. All things are now favorable for a speedy removal from the old weedy and paper strewn grounds to a beauteous public park with velvety green grass, leafy shade trees and sparkling spraying fountains. Congressman Dolliver has nominated Rudolph M. Anderson, of Forest City, as naval cadet to Annapolis, and O. W. Fowler of Fort Dodge as alternate. Prof. D. A. Kent, who drained and made a 2,000 acre farm of Mud Lake, has had a backset. About 200 acres of it are now covered with water from one to three foot deep, and the crops ruined. He has a big ditch, but the water flows in faster lhan out. The tide has turned. The Ringling Bros. Show is to bo at Ft. Dodge May 23. Capt. Hartshorn, of Emmetsburg, has received news of the death of his father, Hon. .Tiiy. W; Hartshorn at his Vermont home. He was in his 81st year. Rev. T. F. Bowen has closed his term as rector at Estherville and has accepted work in the missionary field at Spencer. II. J. Thompson .states that arbout ten days ago D. A.

If Douglas keeps on increasing his poultry business, his income will soon bo larger than Vanderbilts.—Whitte- more Champion. The S\voa City Herald says that Mayor Richmond of that place has improved his 1101 th side property this spring by putting out something like a carload of trees. Shade trees are set out on both sides of the several streets which will make a popular walk in a few years. Geo. C. Frisby, of Seneca township, says the Swea City Herald, sold $700 worth of cattle last week. This makes about $3,500 worth he has sold since last fall. The Wesley Reporter says that Frank Hedrick is contemplating the erection of a $2,000 residence in the north part of Sexton. of you have read, swept everything before it for about thirty miles square and destroyed over 700 human lives. The town and vicinity have rapidly built up. The town is less than a year and a half old and contains over 700 inhabitants. The soil is mostly clay, with a little black dirt and a very little sand mixed in. It is very productive. Nothing but the No. 1 hard wheat is raised here. Oats, barley and rye are raised to a great extent. "Oats sowed as late as June 1st last year went 100 bushels to the acre and weighed 40 Ibs. to the bushel. For vegetables and* tame hay it cannot be beat. Wild hay grows in abundance on the bottom land, and strawberries, blackberries, raspberries grow wild in the timber, any amount of them. We'are located on two good railroads half way between St. Paul, Minneapolis and Duluth, and Superior, two and one half hours' ride from each. There is lots of land for sale hero at from 83.50 to 50.00 per acre, and for men of limited means and desiring a farm, I know cf no better place to invest than here. Laud will not be so cheap much longer. To prove this statement I wi!l give you a few figures. Over 45,000 acres have been sold in the vicinity of Ilinckley, Miller and Wreasland by the St. Paul & Duluth R. R. Co. this spring, besides 3,300 acres of school land, and lots of speculators' land, and some improved farms. Nearly every letter I gee asks these questions: How do you like it up' there by this time? Don't you get lonesome? With wha'. nationality of people is it principally settled? First, I like the country first rate, as the tone of this letter will show. As to being lonesome, will say I have no time to think 'about it. Third, around Ilinckley the inhabitants are principally Americans. Around Wreas- land there are none other than Holland Dutch. The Miller colony has a few Swedes but is composed principly of Hollanders. I have also had a few letters asking the following: Do any good people live there or are they all Iowa Sunday men that loft between Saturday and Monday? Does any one besides Esqimaux and Indians live there? To these I would like to say, take your geographies, look them over, then get a few papers and read them and you will find that there are as good people living hundreds of miles north of the Canada line and just as well educated and just as honest as you are, if they are under the English flag. As to the people of Ilinckley, I will say I never have and never want to be treated at homo or abroad any better than I have been during my short time here. Yours Truly, L. A. TAYLOR. P S. Any questions of general interest I will answer through this paper. If not of general interest I will answer by private letter. Strangers must enclose stamp for reply. Anyone wishing railroad maps, giving discrlptkm and terms of land, will receive them by sending two-cent stamp. GEKMANJA. GEUMANIA, May 1.—F. II.

Ledyard's New Creamery, From the Leader: Tho creamery machinery was tested last Saturday and it worked like a charm. There was not a jar, to the satisfaction of Spurbeck & Lambert, of whom the supplies were purchased, and the pleasure of the creamery managers and a number of our citizens who are very much interested in the success of the institution. It commenced taking in milk Monday, receiving 2,000 pounds, which is a splendid beginning and argues well for its future. We believe that it will become popular with the farming community and get a lion's share of patronage, because of the business methods upon which it will be conducted. Our faith is pinned to its management who are all good, solid farmers and business men. Long may it stand a monument to the enterprise and business sagacity of its instigators and stockholders.

We give a written guarantee to cure permanently any case with fiuee boxes or refund the money with 10 per cent interest.
