A big picnic party of ladies enjoyed themselves in the woods south of town Saturday afternoon.

U& brajjghjj Mrs. Henry Fisher brought suit in 'Squire Clarke's court last week to recover her wearing apparel, etc., from her father, M. O'Rourke. Before it came to trial the clothing was given up.

The state crop report says: The oats harvest is about completed and threshing is in progress, with many reports of phenomenally heavy yields.

Some one has sent the resolution adopted by the county board to the effect that the county physician must be employed by township trustees where possible, or the county will not pay, to the state board of health.

Marsh Stephen's • Humboldt county brother, who was up the Fourth, is not pushing his suit against the Chicago street car company. He was standing in the aisle of a street car, when an inexperienced motor man hooked the car on the cable too quick.

Old gentleman Winkie has a grievance against a. Wisconsin man named CJeary. He has rendered services in securing a pasture, water, etc., and in driving cattle, to the amount of $20 as he firmly believes, which the aforesaid CJeary fails to recognize in the substantial way which would please and gratify the plaintiff. 'Squire Taylor will hear and hold the scales of justice next week, Sullivan & McMahon setting forth Mr, Winkle's tribulations. Bishop Thoburn of the Methodist church |n India gave an entertaining talk on his 39 years in that part of the world Thursday evening, Men over there get fg8 and $30 a year wages.

There is a rumoi* that he was caught twice but lie is very reticent about the matter. Chicago Is very particular about where it permits bicycles to be Used. I'he grange store is nbout to close. It began in 1875 with C. W. Goddard as manager a year or more in the old court house. Then J. E. Blackford was elected manager and he gradually bought in the $10 shares of stock on which it had been started and it changed to a private institution. In late years his son Edwin has been manager. The grange store has done a big business and has been recognized ns a reliable and honorable business house. Wo are sorry to see it close. An electric light proposition was put before the city council Saturday night, and a special meeting will be held soon to consider it, It was in the form of an ordinance drawn by Geo. R. Cloud, Tbeo. Chrischilles and Judge Quarton are the local men whose names appear. It is to be put in by local money, if the voters and council approve of it. The ordinance calls for 12 arc lights for the city at a rate of $6 a month each, and right for 20 years to furnish incandescent lights for private use at rates not to exceed one cent an hour each. Uncle Jo. Tennant has broken all the fishing records. He pulled in a 114- pound pickerel above the mill yesterday. His line broko and he dropped the rod and grabbed the piece attached to the fish. Then just as he got the fish on a little raft the hook pulled out, and he threw himself flat on the captive and held him by main strength. He talked to the fish all the time, and there are those who say $26 would have been cheap if they could have seen the circus. It is the biggest pickerel caught in late years in the liver. Olof Johnson writes the following item from Estherville: "Allow me to tell you that yesterday several thousand people from here and surrounding country took a drive to a spot some six miles north of this place to witness an extraordinary sight, in shape of an artesian well. It is what is generally called a tubular well, with five inch casing, and is 140 feet deep. The water is thrown out with such force that it looks like steam. There is water enough thrown up, it is estimated, to fill a one inch pipe. It is the opinion of wellmen that a stone at the bottom of the casing serves as a valve, otherwise it would be another Belle Plaine well." However much anyone may- object to having justice administered by bare knuckles, everybody must be pleased that when knuckles are used, justice is administered. Such a case occurred Saturday evening when Louie Eiler, the thug who knocked Geo. Galbraith down some months ago, struck Julius Krisenski, the big plasterer, across the head with a club. Krisenski took Mr. Eiler in hand and when he got done with him Dr. Pride was called to repair the damages and patch Eiler up. Krisenski had a finger nearly bitten off, and says Eiler drew a knife. But he gave Eiler a sound threshing for all that and one which he will bear evidences of for some time, On the 24th day of July, in the city of Des Moines an association was organized by the officers of building and loan associations throughout the state.
