Our Neighbor, Butt— Northwest News. About seven miles from Buffalo Cen tef, In northeastern Kossuth county, a terrible fatality Occurred a week ago, which is reported by the Tribune. We give the details from that paper! A message was sent to summon Dr. Buss to attend the youngest son of Mrs. Bockholt, a German widow living seven or eight miles southwest of town, in the edge of Kossuth county. As near as we can learn, the facts are that this boy, who was about 12 years of age, and his brother, three years older, were returning from school and on the way engaged In a boyish quarrel about something at school or in their play, As they neared their home the elder boy seized a rod'used for holding the end- gate of a wagon box in place and threw it at his brother. His aim was too true and the rod struck the boy in the upper lobe of the right ear entering about four inches. .The heavy end. fell to the ground tearing the brain in the upper part of the head in a frightful manner. The injured boy staggered under the shook, but being near the door was able to enter the house before becoming unconscious. The doctor hastened to. his bedside, but soon saw that all efforts to preserve life would be futile. However, he sent to Bancroft for another surgeon and did what he could to relieve pain and suffering. About 12 o'clock death claimed the little sufferer and all was over. The funeral took place Saturday at German Valley. It is a sad case and should be an awful warning to boys in their play to be careful, for they little know how terrible the result of a seemingly innocent action may be. A Good Word for Burt. The Daily Capital has the following to say about one of our best towns: There are many good points about the little town of Burt, in prosperous Kossuth, the biggest of all Iowa counties. An enterprising set of business men, an excellent community and prosperous results are beginning to crop out. A few facts and figures will not be out of place. A most successful co-operative creamery is the pride of the town and a drawing card for the farmers, from which they realize a big source of profit. The secretary's report for 1894 showed that they took in 3,207,781 pounds of milk, made 137,154 pounds of butter, from which they received the round, snug sum of $27,094.88. The average price paid per 100 for milk was 84 cents. The increase of business over the preceding year was about-40 per cent. In shipments by carloads Burt is away up. THE UPPER DBS MOINES, at the close of the year 1894, contained the shipments from every station in the county except two. Our shipments were 770 cars. In the shipment of grain we shipped more than any other town in the county, and we were, second in stock. This is proof'positive that we iave the best market in the country and nothing but good results in a business way will follow. The building irospect for this season is excellent, Besides new business, houses, several additions, many new residences, and so on. A double store brick, two stories, on one of the main corners, seems probable. A second harness shop, a new _rocery, a third lumber yard, and the organizing of several new lodges are among our late acquisitions, Dea Molnes Aska Help of Ledyard, State Register. The purchasing committee of the city council has written iO Ledyard in the hope of securing hay at $6.60 per ton. Formerly the city mid $11.50. That was before there was my head to the purchasing business for the city, and every one could go out and buy indiscriminately and unUmHedly. The purchasing committee hopes to be able to secure bay for $3 per ton in bulk in northern Iowa this summer and to buy a sufficient quantity of it to last for a year, a saving of some $2,500. West Bend In the SJiy. Mr, J. O. Paxson of Irvington informed a West Bend Journal reporter ;hat last Monday morning About sunrise be saw West Bend In a beautiful mirage which lasted about half an hour, He said the city appeared lifted above the horizon,and looked like $ city of glistening gold, He was in* formed that the probable explanation was that it was an pmen placed in the heavens Indicating that the ladies of West Bend were abput to inaugurate a new era by appearing &t the polls to oast their first vote at a eohQel ejection. ___Fs have .

One gentleman, who Was present at the sale said: "The car is a hoodo and I wouldn't ride in it if It was built of solid gold." New Taxes Are Unpopular. Carroll Herald: Algona voted on a library tax last week, and like Carroll a year ago defeated it. About 400 women voted on the question, but they were by no means unanimous. People will hot vote to increase any item of expense these times. " " Killed By the Cars. ^ A son of Banker Thompson of Forest City was killed last week at Mtl Vernon, where he was attending college, by lumping from the North western fast train. The boys were In the habit of boarding trains and jumping off. He did it once too often. ROT. 8. H. Taft Attacked by a Hog. S. H. Taft, the Humboldt pioneer, was set upon by a sow last week.
