He was struck to? & deal by a man who had horses to turn in as part payment. Now a veteran labd dealer is never In the least disconcerted by such a proposition, tie is always prepared for any emergency of this sort. The prices on the land and the horses were mutually satisfactory, and terms were soon reached. After the trade was supposed to be clinched the land man said: "Well, I have come to the conclusion that I do not want your horses. You may. have the land just as we have talked and keep your horses." Whereupon the buyer waxed wroth and declared that it was a fair deal, and he wanted to get rid of the stock, and if the horses didn't go the deal was off. The Beacon's information goes no further, and we never do any romancing to round out an incomplete statement of fact. The same old story, that the Iowa Central railway has been absorbed by the Milwaukee system, was traveling the rounds last week. This report gets out about once a year and has been going the rounds for twenty years. Ames Times: Largely through the efforts of Parley Sheldon of Ames, who has advocated it for years, a 'departure entirely new to Iowa has 'been arranged for Friday, the last day of the state fair. The day will be known as " Derby day" and all races will be running races. lu the forenoon, two races, a three-quarter mile and a half-mile dash will be run. In the afternoon, a one and a half mile novel county race, a mile dash, and the "IowaDerby," which is to be a one and one-eighths mile dash to be run by three-year-olds. When you talk about there being a better state than Iowa, says an 'exchange, every potato slyly winks its e,ye, every cabbage shakes its head, every beet gets red in the face, every onion feels stronger, every oats field is shocked, rye strokes its beard, corn pricks up its ears, and every foot of land kicks. After about six years of litigation over the Minneapolis & St. Louis road, says the Fort Dodge Messenger, it is about to pass into the hands of some definite ownership. It will be sold at auction by the sheriff after the expiration of the required time for advertisement. The amount against it is about $5,000,000. The stockholders can, of course, bid in the road at the time of the sale—if they can raise the money. But it seems to be a foregone conclusion that the Rock Island will get the road. The Bock Island is a very heavy bondholder and is thus enabled to bid securities against the cash which other bidders would have to supply. An attempt was made to burn the Herald printing office at Belmond last week. The building was damaged to the amount of about $100, and Brother Keeler has cause for rejoicing that it is no more. The report of the adjutant general, made at the department encampment at Council Bluffs, showed a total membership of the G. A. B. to be 17,658 on Dec. 81, a decrease of 2,309. The death losses were 265, an increase of 88 over the preceding year. The financial report showed the receipts to be $49,854.79 and expenditures $47,493,41; balance on hand, $2,361.38. Gov, Jackson has issued a proclamation naming August 10 of this, year as Battle Flag day, and recommends that it be observed as a public holiday. T£e last assembly passed a law providing for the preservation of the colors, standards and battle flags borne by Iowa regiments, and hermetically sealed glass cases have been placed in appropriate positions in the corridor of the capitol. On the 10th of August these flags are to be transferred from the arsenal to these cases. Reduced Rates for Excursions.

WESLEY, July 10.—The Fourth passed off very quietly here. Those of our citizens who went to other towns all say they had a plesant time. Prof. Barslou and family have returned home from visiting their friends In the northern part of the county. Thos. Gray and Frank Heal will start in a couple of weeks for an extended tour through parts of Europe. Mr. Gray will visit his old home at Glasgow, Scotland, and Mr. Heal his birthplace in England. Both gentlemen have relatives living there. Mrs. Heal and her mother, Mrs. Daggett, will accompany them as far as New York and then they will go to Maine and visit their friends at their old home until they return. Thursday evening will be installation of the officers of the, Odd Fellows' lodge. D. D. G. M. Collins of Estherville will be present. Farmers are preparing to haryest their grain. Several fields of barley and rye have been cut, and by the middle of the next week the oats harvest will be on hand. , Bov. Eastman returned Monday from camp-meeting at Lake Mills. Tramps are very numerous here lately, all looking for work. Charley Jones returned from Wisconsin last Friday,-where he has been visiting his friends. Considerable wheat and oats have been coming on the market lately, but owing to the strike nothing can be shipped. Tom Gray has had a carload of fat hogs here in the yard for the past week, waiting for the road to be opened so he can ship, and E. F. Bacon has a couple of cars of fat cattle at Britt all ready to go. He has been feeding over a week on account of the tie up of the railroad. Miss Ida Cole, daughter of Dr. Cole of Britt, has been visiting her aunt, Mrs. J. E. Hill. W. A. Gillespie has moved his blacksmith shop south of Jones & Adams' livery barn, where he can get more room to enlarge his shop in order to handle his large and increasing trade. Geo. Frink has purchased another stock of merchandise, composed mostly of ready-made clothing and boots and shoes, and has opened up business in the Crescent store room. We hope this will not interfere with the building of the new mill that was talked of last spring. However, we wish him success in his line of business. John Longbottom has the best showing for a crop of oats and corn this season that anyone wishes to look at. We doubt if it can be beaten in the county. Anyone that has any doubts about the fertility of our soil here can have them removed by taking a look at his crop and see wjmt good farming will do. ____ Farm for Sale or Bent.
