Telephone Special. —At 11:30 Monday J. W. Frltts, a farmer living five miles southwest of Armstrong, In Jack Creek township, Emmet county, was instantly killed and horribly mangled. He was riding on a 3-wheel riding plow and got down to fix the plow when he fell under it, and the horses becoming frightened began to run. The point of the plow ran into his neck and broke it, and as the team ran the unfortunate man was wound around the axle. The women of the house saw the horses running across the field, and the father of Fritts and another man went to catch them, when they found the mutilated body as stated. Fritts was 31 years old and had a wife and two children. Pasture Notice. ' Pasturage for 200 head. Two hundred head of cattle wanted. 1,180 acres of good pasture.

COUNTY AND NEIGHBORHOOD, For some time the Fort Dodge people have been working to make their town and its surroundings attractive and beautiful. They put a dam in the river last year and brought up the water so as to surround a fine wooded elevation and make it an island. This they will make an attractive park. They have now put a steamer on the river, and. the first day it carried 300 passengers. Afinefleetof sail boats add their white canvass to the gay scene. There is nothing slow about Fort Dodge. Rev. A. C. Krusc, of Germania, was recently married to Miss Mary Willemsscn, near George, Lyon county. The groom was pastor of a church at Sibley up to two months ago. When the elder got home to Germania from his wedding tour one of the iirst things he did was ( o perform the marriage ceremony for Dr. H. W. Johnson and Mrs. Anna Stratum of that place. The dateofEev. Kruse's formal installation by the representatives of the Fort Dodge presbytery was last evening, May 12. Wesley has been greatly agitated by an outbreak of diptheria. The schools and churches have been closed. Only one death from the disease has occurred, however, Miss Frances Ward, a young lady. The Reporter says that since her death no one has been taken down and the town is believed to be entirely free from the disease, but at the same time the utmost precaution is urged. Clay county has just negotiated §12,000 bonds, due in ten years and payable any time at the option of the county, for 6 per cent, premium. The Reporter says half of the bonds will be payable in one year, and the balance a short time thereafter, so that the county will, after deducting the premium, only have to pay between 3 and 4 per cent for the money. Bancroft Register: The evangelist now conducting revival meetings in Algona seems to think of that town as Williams did of Waterloo, that it is "rotten as hell." Don't know how rotten it is, but from the hot wave that has been coming up from the south this week, it or some other point down that way must be about as hot as hell is usually pictured. Commissioner Delavan, says the Vindicator, is doing something which no commissioner of the state ever did before. Af-' ter trying hard and failing to have fish- ways ordered placed in some of the dams in some of the principal streams, he is employing men with nets to seine out the fish below the dams and transport them to DON'T TAKE ANY CHANCES Abstracts of Title.

GEKMANIA, May 11.—The departure of F. T. Miller and wife frqm Germania is to the regret of all. They had many friends. In the race at Bancroft last Moiiday Robt. Pringle's horse beat. The writer of the Bancroft locals doesn't know what he is talking about when he says that Sleepy Mose got a full length start. It is not so and the crowd proved it by the result. Toe boys from hero hurrahed .for Mr. Prinjrle's horse and they tell a smart good story too. People in the southern part of Kossuth county think that Germania is the toughest town in seven states.. It may .be all true from reports but we invite you to make us a visit and see what a prosperous little city we have. We had a fight here last Saturday night, a week ago, but our energetic city authorities put a stop to that by levying aright good sum. Isn't that the kind of a town to live in? We have churches here and a school house all under good government and the people are not a class of heathens either. There is an ordinance against selling intoxicating liquors, and any party found selling or .bootlegging is iined $10 for every offense. : Gerinania has just as nice a class of civ- 'ilizod citizens as any town in the county. Make us a visit. TheM.E. society will build a ?i,SOO : chnrch here this season. .,.,.. , If you want to invest sensibly put your capital in Germania property. Every bit of it will be returned in a short time. Last Friday Miss Newman, of Whittemore, bought two fine lots in the west part of town of B. F. Smith. Our ball boys are commencing to practice up, and in a week or so will play with Swea City. Look out for "Olif's" twisters boys. _ Dr. Johnson, our new druggist, was united in tho holy bonds of matrimony to Mrs. Anna Stratton of Erie, 111., on Wednesday evening of last week. Congratulations. Mrs. E. O. Fitzis quite sick but is improving slowly. 'F. H. Bunker, our leading merchant, was a business transactor at Buffalo Center last Thursday. The Geo. Will's block is receiving anew coat of paper. P. H. Spangler is acting as hanger. A cow was killed west of town by a train Tuesday. The Burlington have a new time card. Tho trains are now running much to the satisfaction of the public. Mrs. E. Dreesman, of Buffalo Center, was a visitor at her home in this city Sunday. .

HARBISON. HARRISON, May 4.—Mr. L. Moyer is visiting F. M. Slyter. Mr. Moyer has lately returned after making a three month's visit with relatives in Mazon, 111. We were surprised a week ago to hear of the marriage of Mr. W. Yager to Miss Westfall. Tho bride is the accomplished daughter of Mr. Oren Westfall of this vicinity. May their lives be long and happy. No more crossing fields going from the west to Ledyard. Everybody is now compelled to travel tho straight road. This is just as it should be. Solomon Hasting has a very choice variety of seed potatoes for sale, a large portion of them weighing a pound and a half. He is also selling some fine garden seeds. Work on the new United Brethern church in Ledyard is being pushed with .vigor, : with Rev. Walker at the front. HARBISON, May 11.—Once more we hear the click of the planter: Jesse Hasting is done planting for the year of ninety-six. F. M. Slyter has one hundred and twenty acres planted and twenty-five above the ground. It was planted a week ago. This is beautiful growing weather.' •Rey. Walker delivered a splendid ser- three o'clock on Sunday, May 3rd, in the Slyter school house. The house was full of people, as it usually is each Sabbath. Last Friday was the fifteenth birthday of Miss Ada Slyter and her young friends and school-mates planned a surprised for her which was beautifully carried out. The Ledyard creamery is giving good satisfaction in its work. Tramps are beginning to be numerous. They are very troublesome to the farmers' wives in wanting meals at all hours. I guess the bald headed end of the broom will have to be used on them. Mr, Pack, wife and daughter visited with.tho family of Mr. Welfare. Vane Hartzell, one of Swea City's most prominent young men, was smiling on the girls of Ledyard on Sunday last. Wesley Litigation, - Some . ley Democrats Kick, WfiBLfifrj May tl,—John S. Gallagher had the misfortune to lose, his best cow last Saturday. The case of G. S. McPherson vs. Giest & Drone occupied the attention of Justifies Robinson and Johnson each one day last week. The matter Is now before 0. L. Hagor at Sexton, where It will be fought out to-day. The plaintiff Is represented by Bonar & Fellows and the defendants- by C. A. Cohenour and Welt Miller. Mr. and Mrs. Geo. fi. Hall are proud of the arrival of a bouncing boy, and George says "My goodness I but he has strong lungs." Charley Atkinson, who is assisting his father on their farm near Ledyard, spent Sunday at home with his mother and sisters. There were no religious services Sunday on account of the dlptherla scare. It seems as though the Wesley correspondent to the Courier is having the night mare again. Anyone who has use for an auctioneer could not do better than call Jlmmie Ne- vlll of this place. As we prophesied in our last communication, Wesley has sent a split delegation to the democratic county convention. Some of the delegates are for free silver and others are for the single gold standard. The following are the delegates: W. P. Gtddings, Julius Kiinz, J. C. Huber and Hugh McCutchen. There is talk of a change in the management of one of our hotels. T. A. Way, of Brltt, spent Sunday in Wesley. A. S. White is moving the old school house onto the lot just west of C. Breln's barber shop. Ed. Kiinz has returned from Chicago, where he purchased a full stock of new goods and is now .prepared to compete with.anyone in the county as to quality and price.

The assessor of one of the townships of Franklin county made a table of the losses of the farmers of his community by hog cholera last year which shows their assets to have been reduced by nearly $35,000 through the ravages of this disease. 3,350 animals died, 107 being tho property of one farmer. J. R. Davis has moved his family to Burt, which will bo their future residence. D. R. Crowell has sold his Burt mercantile business to a Mr. Clarke for an improved farm near Spencer, says the Monitor. The farmers of the county will be interested in the information, from the Led- yard.Leader, that Marsh Stephens and Dr_ Dunlap completed sowing 300 acres of wheat a week before last. The Ledyard Leader says that "Ernest Arnold has a young fox, but its ancestry on botli sides could probably be traced back to pioneer prairie wolf families." Fred Gilbert, of Spirit Lake, won the American championship for target shooting last week in New York. He made a score of 306 targets broken out of 300.
