Later some' well diggers at Wesley heard sounds while deep in the bowels Of the earth, and the two Incidents excited the imagination of Bailey of Britt, who announced that the, missing dog had come through a cavern to Wesley and that it was its barking • that was heard. Now comes the Des Motnes Leader with the story seriously'told as a matter of northwest news. Its version is interesting to say the least of It: FORT DODGE, Doc. 8.—Ash Bros., well diggers of Wesley, a small post-' office northwest of the city, had an experience the other day which was a peculiar one to say the least. The well augur had penetrated the earth about ten feet, just through the black soil, when they'heard a yelping coming apparently from the bowels of the earth. They Were frightened at first, but finally made an Investigation of the uncanny sounds. The augur was withdrawn and a dog was discovered at the bottom of the well. The dog was brought to the surface without much trouble, and excepting that his hair was slightly singed, he was in good condition. A hole or cavern entered the well from the northwest. The mystery was cleared when a farmer put in an appearance, claiming the dog. He says the dog started to chase a wolf a few days before and when going through a burning pout bed both wolf and dog suddenly disappeared. They evidently fell into the cavern which was covered over with a flimsy layer of matted grass. But for the fortunate discovery by the well diggers the dog would have remained under ground un- till he perished from hunger. The brothers fail to report what became of the wolf. , National Guard Mooting. The seventh annual session of the National Guard Association of Iowa will be held in the office of the adjutant general at Des Molnes, probably on Jan. 17, the day following the Inauguration of Gov. Drake. This association is composed of officers of the national guard and only officers in actual service or on 'the" retired list are eligible for membership. It has as its principal object the advancement of the interests of the guard and the management of the guard as far as military customs and usage will follow, is considered by the association. At the annual meeting papers are read by the officers, which are afterwards discussed, After the meeting last year Adjutant General Prime made arrangements for the holding of a schopl of instruction for officers at the state agricultural college at Ames under the direction of Inspector General J, R. Lincoln and Assistant Inspector General Harry Wilkins and it is probable the school will be continued this year, as it was of much benefit to the guard. The following topics will be discussed at the meeting: Examinations for Warrants and Commissions, Gapt. E. C. Johnson, Co, M, First regiment, Maquoketa, . Armories, How obtained and How Maintained, unassigned. The Military Code of Iowa, Major Jonas M. Cleland, judge advocate Second brigade, Sioux City.

The engineer gave the number, which the master found to be correct after investigating and remarked: "That is better than 1 can do.. Your eyes are O. K.' Say, how far can you see anyway?" To which the ready- witted engineer replied: "I bun see to the moon on a clear night." Webster city's Shoo, Factory. Here is the expert opinion of the Webster City Journal on shoe factories: Algona don't take hold of the shoe factory. If it was proposed to establish it there on the same plan it was put up here, Algona's head is level 1 in giving it the go-by. We contributed $150 for a lot to aid the enterprise here and it isn't worth paying taxes on. And many others can say the same. We are not able to see any good results from the shoe factory. Shot In Ilia Piano. Charlie Elmendorf, our old time Al- gonlan, is in Sioux City. He put a fine piano in the Mondamln hotel and some one has poured fine bird shot into it and the tone is not thereby improved. Charlie offers $100 reward fqr the guilty party. He thinks that someone acquainted with the piano did the work and hints at his competitors. Important If True. The Lake City Graphic reports that the hired man who runs H. C.

The machine milked the 00 cows in a jiffy > and tben pulled them all wrong side out through the stanchions. Can Any Town Boat This? J. J. Bruce is after the drugstores in Rolf e as liquor sellers.
