Pays 6 Per Merest on Time WESLEY, June 16.— A slack wiro performer and juggler gave a performances here last week on the street. Wesley has ft li-yottf-old boy that weighs 195 Ibs. Can any other towns In tho county beat that? This Is no fish story, but an actual fact, as any of our citizens will vouch for. Matt Grler, the efficient court reporter of this district, spent Sunduy in Wesley. It has been whispered for some time that Matt intended to take unto himself In the near future a wife, and wo surmise he came to Wesley on a tour of Inspection, as wo have the prettiest girls in tho world, and Matt is n good judgeof beauty, therefore we expect to see him here often after this, and wo want to say to tho girls that Matt is all o. k. For some reason the editors did not meet hero Monday as was expected. We are sorry that they did not come and see a real live town, as Wesley has more business energy to the square inch than any town in Iowa. Wesley will celebrate and don't you forget it. The band boys have secured the right of way and are working to make the celebration a grand success. Come and spend tho Fourth with us and tell your neighbors to do the same. Remember that Wesley never disappointed the people i n anything she -undertook. We will give tho program and attractions as soon as they are arranged. A half mile bicycle track is being graded and smoothed up. We are becoming decidedly a wheel town. Work will begin on tho erection of a third story on the Sherman House this week. Joe Tregtinxa will have charge of tho work. Fred Anderson had the misfortune to run a rusty nail In his hand Friday. The school board has found it necessary to add another teacher to the force for next year. Miss Longbottom and Mrs. Pierson have been re-elected and Miss Tanner has been added. Prof. Ehlers will not accept another term and so it will bo necessary for the directors to lind another principal. Bailey, of the Britt Tribune, and Warren and wife of the Algona U. I)., were in town Monday. Thos. A. Way, of Britt, came up Monday. HAKKISON. HAHKISOX, June 10.— The weather continues cold for so late in the season and the greater part of the wheat looks as though it would be entirely dead in a short time. Corn is very small and growing slow. F. M. Slyter and family went to the lakes fishing on Thursday last. They were overtaken'' by rain and high wind, and so returned the next day with a very few fish. The Christian Union Society will, on the evening of June 23, give an entertainment in the Slyter school house and school yard consisting of a temperance lecture by a splendid speaker and a talk on young people's Christian work- by the pastor. Refreshments will be served by the young ladies of the society, and music by the Ledyard band. All are cordially invited. F. Wiemer of the Ledyard State Bank is building a line barn on his farm west of town. Frank Hartscl and sisters visited the lakes on Wednesday last for the purpose of catching fish, but returned empty handed. f hsse tfew Bodks At* Judge Cook is putting in 500 yards tiling on his place south of Ledyard* John Bamvart, of Garfleld township, has bought a gasoline engine with which to run his pump, feed mill and dairy. It Is claimed this power Is cheaper and more efficient than the windmill. The Swea City Herald notes a great Increase In th'o number of cyclone caves In Its neighborhood during the month. Tho Ledyard Leader says that Dr. Dunlap has rented a house at Rndd, Floyd county, and will remove there at once and open a bank and engage In the practice of his profession. Dr. Dunlap still owns his residence and business property at Lod- yard and about 800 acres of Kossuth county land. Wesley Reporter: Tho Kernan and Chandler Ward school houses have now each good cyclone caves. They are planked up on tho inside and seats built on each side. A tile drain carries away anv water that may accumulate. The directors have tho approval of the school patrons in this expenditure. Every school should have a place of refuge from the approach of cyclones and severe storms. Whlttcmoro Champion: John Wichler had an exceedingly warm Hmo last week while attempting to hive some bocs which were swarming. The bees settled on a tree In the garden and John went to shaking thorn down into the new hive, but by some mlscuo theylit on his head and began to bore holes in it promiscuously with tho evident intention of making their future home there. John didn't appreciate their good intentions and began to box them right and left, but they were so skilful in an "undercut" that he concluded to run. He jumped clear over a twelve foot apple tree and ran into tho grass north of his house where he managed to beat them off by rolling and tumbling for several minutes. A liberal useof liniment has restored his hands and face to about normal dimensions, but he will be more cautious, hereafter. On Money Left for Three Months or Over.

Mike Weisbrod has sold part of his farm to Paul Moore for 830 an acre. NEiaHBOBEOOD GOSSIP. Emmetsbiirg Reporter: John J. Steil is generally a most deserving young man, but he is sometimes ungenerous to strangers. The other day two Arabians were traveling from place to place blowing their horns and favoring the public with music. John and Jimmy Cleary got tin horns and started up In opposition. Tho strangers couldn't stand competition and left town. This ended the music. John and Jimmy were not so generous with their selections after their competitors left. Spirit Lake Beacon: C. P. Bonnet, of Lake Park, is milking 50 cows with his new fangled cow pump, of which he speaks In praise. Two men do the job in forty minutes. He expects to double the number of cows, and says the hundred can be milked by two men in an hour. The cows like it. Heifers do not need any breaking. After she has been milked by one of these machines tho ll eow with the crumpled horn" has no more use for the forlorn maiden of nursery fame. Garner Signal: On last Saturday evening some one without the fear of tho law before their eyes, fired some decayed "hen fruit" over the canvass corral that en- cir«lcd the medicine troupe, and this while some of the performers were cavorting around on the inside. Although we cannot commend this method of showing disapprobation for performances of this kind, still wo hope tope permitted to say that wo have had a surfeit of medicine shows and art) willing to take a rest for at least a short season. the V?eekLteaHatt E. i», Me* has plaeM oft the shelves the fol* lowing new books, most of which nite of the ClnssMllfcd juvenile, but which everybody likes to vead just the same: nOur No.w.

Swea City Herald: On Saturday last the Swea City's met the Algona's at the Band picnic near Hurt and returned with another notch in the handle of their battle hatchet, which signifies that another scalp has been taken. The Algona boys got but 4 of the 15 scores and they were all made through rank errors on the part of the home team and the still ranker decisions of a very rank umpire. Salisbury of Algona was in the box for the southerners and threw a very good game but the support given him was so thoroughly mixed with that superior quality of rottenness which Algoua keeps so much of, that the game was never in doubt. Hart, for Swea City, was well backed and pitched a line game, being found for but a few scattering hits. A large crowd witnessed the game and seemed satisfied with the result. An All-Rouml Minister. Wejley Beporter: The REPUBLICAN tells a little experience Eev. Southwell recently had in a rain storm, being compelled to seek shelter in a barn over night. If we mistake not this is nothing new for the Eev. gentleman. At Mapleton, where he was stationed a few years ago, at the time of the Maple Valley cloudburst, he with the mayor of that town formed a rescue party in order to secure a family who were in peril of drowning. After gliding nearly a mile down stream their boat upset and they were compelled to swim to some trees near by. where in their drenched clothes they passed the night until the waters subsided and the rescurers were rescued the next morning. Rev. Southwell can always be depended on no matter what the emergency is. tit: P. tiAGSAflD. 0. *• Haggard & Peek, Successors to ABSTRACTS, REAL COLLECTIONS A. 1>. Ciai'ke & Co., FARM LOANS.
