The wife and little daughter have the sympathy of all Bancroft in their affliction. The Decoration day exercises were the best ever had here.

The singing and in fact the whole program was what it should have been. ,- N Swea City defeated Armstrong in a first class game of baseball at Armstrong Decoration Day.

The races and the ball game between Bancroft and Swea City will be interesting. Everybody and their relatives are invited to come.

Tho Wusluy Reporter of Friday last told of Charley Bronson's return home from Chicago and said: The doctors at the hospital had set throe different days to amputate his foot but each time put it off, and as he didn't altogether like their way of doing things he made up his mind to come home. Dr. Kenney made an examl- lation of the foot yesterday afternoon, and tomorrow, with the assistance of Dr. ivenefick, of Algona, will make the amputation about two inches above tho ankle. All his friends are glad to see him stand- ng up under the terrible ordeal so brave- y, and hope for the operation to be a success. The Ledyard Leader reports the explosion of a gasoline stove in the home of A. G. 11. Jones last week. The machine became unruly and Mrs. Jones called her husband who carried it outside, and the stove did the rest. Skinner had the remains for repairs the following day. No damage but to the stove. Tho Herald's baseball editor sums up tho record of the Swea City base ball team jy saying: Of the live matched games played thus fur this year, everyone belongs to us by handsome margins varying from 5 to 24 scores. ' Dr. Foiling has put in a local telephone xchange at Whittemore, consisting uf twelve instruments and adds that they are contemplating the construction of a lino strong* but nothing definite has b<&n &t rived at as yet.

We do not know about Bancroft Lake but understand that A. D. Clarke has surrounded it so that nothing but water can get into it. Fifteen dollars a lean is a pretty good price, says the Wesley Reporter, but that ia the sum Enos Hollenbeck will pay for leaning too hard against the West window In the post office. J. B.

The Buffalo Center Tribune says that Tuesday morning Albert Anfinsen and W. S. Tibbetts saw a peculiar looking gopher fun under the crossing north of the Tibbetts shop, and thought they would satisfy their curiosity by digging him out. After poking and digging for a while they caught a young badger about two months old. He is a cute little fellow and the boys low have him on exhibition at Mr. Tibbett's shop. The Beacon tells as follows of wholesale land sales in Dickinson county: The James lands, ten sections in Lloyd township, perhaps the best body of raw lands eft in northwest Iowa, were put on .the market only a short time ago, but they are selling rapidly and will soon be gone. Two weeks ago 1,000 acres were purchased by Illinois men, and last week E.^S. Tayor, the successful central Iowa land agent, lad a party of buyers from Rockford, Iowa, at Terril, and closed tho sale of 1,520 dcres of this land. Over half is now sold. Mr. Taylor will have another party of myers this week. Nearly all the land sold vill be broken at once. James S. Mitchell, who bought 800 acres, will move from lockford, and probably locate in Spirit jake, to be near the land. Several houses vill be built on the tracts sqld. The price angod from $20 to §25 per aero. Mr. Tayor, at Torril, says there are two or three good sections left, and itgoes wiihoutsay- ng that they are a splendid investment. PLUM CHEEK.
