Phil Sanaa's iDnig Store —Jerry drover Greets an Old Obmraele,— News of the Neighborhood, The Swea City and Pilot Grove base ball nines played a game at Elnioro Thursday afternoon, and Swea City won an easy victory. The Eye says: The meeting was called to order at 3 o'clock with the Swea City boys in the box. From the first mo* tions it was easily visible with the naked eye that the Pilot Grovers had more thin a match, although they did very well for no't haying played any this season and many of them being now players. The score gained by the defeated club is hardly fit for publication and score made by the victorious nine we have not space to mention in this issue. Eev. Phil. Hanna has bought a drugstore at Eagle Grove and will run it. The Eagle Grove correspondent of the Lu- Verne News says that at first it caused considerable comment and considerable surprise was expressed that the Rev. Hanna should go into the whisky business.but it is stated in the papers that no whisky will be sold by the present management. The Burt Monitor says that Jerre Grover was surprised a few days ago by a visit from Edward Loney, an old army comrade with whom he bunked two years,and whoso face he had not seen since the war. Mr. Loney lives in Canada, and by chance happening to learn Mr. Grover's address, paid him a visit. He went into the field where Mr. Grover was at work, who recognized him at a distance. It is needless to say they had a good visit, though short, for Mr. Loney returned on Wednesday. The Ledyard Leader says that a week ago Sunday, Ben Steinberg and O. E. Schutz, his brothor-in-law, who is visiting him, from Eadcliffe, captured six half grown wolves. Four of them were taken alive but two of them died with boots on. Mr. Schutz exhibited one in town Monday that was a beauty. At the state collegiate tennis tournament, held at Mt. Vernon, Tuesday, Harlan Soper, son of E. B. Soper of Emmetsburg, won the championship in both singles and doubles for Cornell college. The ledar Rapids Gazette gives him credit for some very excellent playing. The Bancroft Register says that Henry Warner of Seneca brought into that office .ast week the horns and part of the skull of a buffalo that he had plowed up on his farm a few days before. The share of the plow had broken the specimen in two; the horns proper had long ago rotted loose and fallen off, but as it is, the measurements show that the old fellow was a big one. From tip to tip they measure 24 inches; the back bone was plowed up with the head, but no legs or ribs were found to give a further idea of the animal's size. The Ruthven Appeal tells of a rare collection of specimens in the hands of N. D. Anthony of that town. They were secured in the course of ten years' travel all over this country. Mr. Anthony went as far north as Vancouver and as far south as Mexico, and some of the specimens date as far back as the stone age. The Ledyard Leader says its town needs a lawyer, and as an inducement it says: 'Such a man could find a good field here and in ten years ho could bo living in a county scat without changing his residence." The Livermorc and Forest City creameries have received world's fair medals for best butter, and possibly other creameries in the neighborhood have been as lucky: The medal is of bronze, about three inches in diameter, and is appropriately inscribed and enclosed in a case lined with plush. The diploma is a handsome specimen of the engraver's art, about 24x30 inches in size. The Germania Standard is one of the best patron I/.c-d papers in the county. Gcr- mania miv.'luvnts and business men are good advertisers. Whittemorn's school directors have hired the following teachers for the coming school yunr: L. C. Bowers Principal, Sadie* TMV'W uranimar, Mrs. C. E. Anderson liHi-rini'diiitC!, Josephine Liddy Primary. Tlic Elmore Eye says that an old settler of Ivjssnth county recently returned from the. Rod Lake country, and says that it is not a fit place for white folks to live. Wesley will celebrate decoration day. The exercises will begin at 3 p. m. and the merchants will bo requested to close their places of business from 2 to 4 o'clock. Win. Whitson, who lived on a farm near Sexton a few years ago, died in the soldiers' home at Marshalltown recently. It is going the rounds of the papers that Armstrong gets 835,000 per year from her saloons, but there must be some mistake about it. It is hard enough on a town of afow hundred population to support a saloon business that can afford to pay one- tenth of that sum. Rev. Father Tierney, of Spirit Lake, lectured at Spencer on a recent Sunday night on "Good Citizenship" and standing room was at a premium. Father Tierney is gaining considerable reputation as a temperance orator, M. II. Richards, formerly editor of the Spencer News, read an interesting paper before the Congregational state convention at Davenport! last week. The Pocahontas county papers say that Mrs. Patrick Crahan is soon to receive a legacy of two and a half million dollars from a rich uncle who died recently in Australia. The Reporter says that C. C. Crumb, the uew landlord of the Central House at Wesley, will open today. The Armstrong Journal says that P. S. King saved two men from drowning In Silver Lake, Sunday. There were three in a which upset! ' One of the men swftmasfi&re,femfcthedtto V&6 M have sufficient strength, and would have filled a watery grave but tot Mf. king's timely assistance. Representative Sam Mayno has been appointed asroue o! the law class examining committee at the state university for next week. LOOAtS* J. A. Freeh Is agent for the best life and fire insurance companies and also for the Beaumont laundry. The ball boys of Swea City went up to Elmore last Saturday and literally wiped the earth with the Elmoro aggregation. Iowa boats Minnesota every time. Next Saturday Is Decoration Day. It will bo well observed here. F. 0. Werner, formerly of Elmore, has removed to this place and is living in the Llndberg house. He Is Working for Mr. Eckhardt of the City Meat Market. The second nine of Burt defeated the Bancroft second nine at this place last Saturday. Just wait until we get our first niners out. Hail insurance Is all the rage and J. A. Freeh writes It and charges no membership fee nor assessments. The North Kossuth Fair Association are advertising their meeting of July 3 and 4 very extensively. Bancroft will put up the best celebration ever known in this county this year. Politics have not yet warmed up much in Bancroft except that a large number of silver coinage men are visible to the naked eye. 0. L. Harper has been beautifying the interior of his photograph gallery by a new coat of paint and the City Meat Market has been painted on the outside also. School Commencement. The commencement exercises of the Bancroft High School will take place at Jefferson hall Friday evening of this week, May 29. Following is the program: Music—selected Miss Scully Invocation Rev. D.

Cook An admission fee of ten cents will be charged to defray expenses. GERMANIA. GEBMANIA, May 23.—We are pleased to note the base ball game between Germania and Ledyard on Friday. This was the first game of the season for both nines and each club needs patching up. The score stood 18 to 31 In favor of Germania. Carman and Teeples of Buffalo Center acted as battery for the homo team, while Hayes and Dutton did the battery work for Ledyard. The Ledyard citizens may think it hard to run in a battery, but ft was paid for 'and it cuts cheese. When Ledyard plays us again they know what to expect. Would it not be wise to have the north half and the souMi half of Kossuth county organize separate ball nines and meet midway, at Bancroft say, and see where the best base ball of the county lies. We are quite positive the south half would get a thumping as Cushions, the Swea City cyclone pitcher, would puzzle most professionals. What do you say, down there? Bruss, of Elmore, bought a number of town lots last week. Carpenter, of the Ledyard Leader, spoke well on temperance at the school house last Sunday evening. Wo need some more of it, Carpenter, judging from the amount of Elmore liquor that is in demand these day i. Some of our nlmrods went out on a wolf hunt the first of last week and succeeded In capturing soven. Six young ones and the mother. This morning rain fell heavily here. The sins of past years will bo washed away, sure. Karl's Clover Root Tea is a sure cure for Headache and nervous diseases. Nothing relieves so quickly. 1 Sold by Fr,ank Dlngley.

The cyclone did Its most terrible work in northern Polk and Dallas. The cyclone formed near the town of Ankenyj 25 miles north of Des Moines, and took In Its course the small towns of Bondurant, Valeria, Mliigo, Polk City and Slater, Twenty lives are known to have been lost In that neighborhood, and at east twenty more iu j ured. At McGregor the great havoc was by flood. Twenty are believed to have lost their lives by drowning and great destruction of railroad property resulted. At Durango, eight miles north of Dubuque, five lives were lost. Cherokee was visited by the flood, but central and northeastern Iowa received the worst effects. The towns along the Milwaukee line from Nora Springs east report a terrible storm of wind and rain. WESLEY. WESLEY, May 38—Nels Overbeck has commenced work on his now house. Decoration day will be observed in Wes- ey Saturday afternoon, beginning at 1 p. m. Kunz brothers will sing several pieces and the Wesley Cornet Band will render appropriate airs. Attorneys Fellows and Miller are on the program for speeches. The G. A. R. and Odd Fellows will be in the procession. The latest from Charles Bronson. whose foot was crushed by a car In Chicago recently, is that his case is progressing favorably. It was found necessary to amputate his foot, which was done just above the ankle. F. M. Butts visited him at Mercy Hospital after the amputation had been performed, and he writes to Wesley parties that Bronson is doing as well as could be hoped. Bronson will recover $1,500 of accident insurance on the loss of uls foot and he will also receive benefits from the Odd Fellows lodge at Wesley. Mrs. Martha Hill has returned from her visit to the eastern part of the state. Business is rather quiet here just at present, but the splendid crops promise a revival in a few months. A large delegation went up to attend ;ourt, Including Attorneys Miller and Fel- ows and Jurymen Nels Johnson, Loren Jenson, J. W. Geist, A. S. White and Lewis Ostrander. One of A. S. White's children stepped on a rusty nail, Sunday, and blood poisoning set in. It is too early to predict the result. Frank Hume and wife and tho latter's mother went to Le Mars On a visit on Tuesday last. Gallagher's now machinery pavilion and Grove's livery barn are both nearing completion. Mr. Colby has sold the section of the school house that he bought from the district to J. W. Wilcox, who will remodel it into a dwelling. A. S. White has bought the other and moved it up on his lot east of Ward's butcher shop. He will make an eating and lodging house of it. Wesley has a good foot ball team but it is not getting the practice it needs, as it can get no club to play with it. Wesley will do tho right thing by the editorial convention which is to bo held hero next month. BUKT.
