This was in slavery times, and the boy grew into a man in the stirring years 'immediately preceding the Civil war. On April 20, 1861, came the startling news that Fort Sumter had been attacked by the South Carolina Confederates, and on the same day, fired with patriotism, the young man, then in his 23rd year, enlisted in Co. H., 2nd Wis. Inf., which was part of what was known as the Iron Brigade. Mr. Grover served more than three years In the Union army arid perhaps saw more active and hard service and suffered more wounds than any other veteran who .ever lived in Kossuth. To the grave he carried a Confederate bullet in one hip, received at the battle of Logansville, Va., in September, 1861 five months after he entered the army. Wounded Five Times. Mr. Grover was wounded flv times in action, and he suffered the consequences throughout his lonj, later life. In August, 1862, in th second Bull Run battle, he suffered severe chest, throat, and arn wounds. Ever afterwards his righ arm and hand were crippled, an because of the hip wound he walkec with a limp.

ALGONA IS GOOD TOURNAMENT TOWN SENEGANS REPORT 'Seneca, Mar. 8—Seneca's basket ball record last week was not Impressive. Tuesday night both teams played at Ringsted, and the girls added one more to their string of victories to make a total of 16, with no defeat, score 28-14. The boys played real basketball to run up a 12-7 lead at the half, but they scor r ed nothing in the second half, while Rngsted ran its score to 13. Seneca missed every free throw. At the sectional tournament 'at Algona, Seneca lost to Ledyard in a poorly played game, and Ledyard then lost to Ottosen. Then, with Swea City beaten by Algona, and Lone Rock and Fenton sharing the fate of Seneca, Algona was the only Kossuth team left for the Saturday night finals. The class of basketball at this tournament was above that of former years, and Algona people showed the many courtesies that . help- make tournaments successful. The tourney was well handled and showed that Algona is a good tournament town. FOR RENT- J.
