The calendar is out, however. No cases of sensational character are docketed. The city paid Miss Anderson, who hurt her foot in a side walk hole a few weeks ngo, $27 rather than stand suit.

Dr. Tribon was at Whittemore Monday and took over a gallon of water from a little three-year-old child of Geo, Elev's, caused by enlargement of the liver, The child stands a poor chance of recovery. Mat, Holtzbauer has the best lawn in town about the court house. He sent off for a patent fertilizer and used it and it is evidently that kind that brings hair on a bald head. The grass is thick and luxuriant, Chas, Walker picked an acquaintance with an unwelcome visitor one day last week, It was a tarantula in a bunch of bananas, Such little reminders of the sunny south seem to make all content with this country.

Miss Mary Smith, daughter of an old settler over in the Gllbride-McEnroe neighborhood, died suddenly Sunday night of a very peculiar disease known as exopthalmia goitre.

The funeral was held Monday and the remains taken to St. Joe for burial, Father Nicholls attending. The Humboldt Republican says of Mrs. Lieut. Foster: George has won a jewel as a wife.

He was nervy and had himself driven in a buffgy to Algona, where he is being cared "for at home, Dr. Kennefick attending. He will be disabled for some time, proba,bly all summer. He has rented his fine farm to the Peterson boys, in consequence. The Ruthven bank case. Geo. E. Clarke tried at Emmetsburg last week is a curious one. The cashier, Gid- dingn, borrowed money illegally. The other officers under throat of prosecu- tiou made him give notes and mortgage to secure the bank. He now defends agaihat a foreclosure charging that he gave the mortgage under duress. The bank was beaten at Emmetsburg and the case goes to thesupremecourt. A. C.

Southwell is using free ice this month at Peter WinkePs expense. Monday Peter was getting a big cake ready to put in Ed. Gilmore's refrigerator when Rev. Southwell asked him about the cost of ice. He responded by saying that if Rev. Southwell would put that cake in the refrigerator without breaking the glass he would give him ice for nothing. Rev. South well pulled his coat and hoisted the ice in. It was a heavy chunk but Rev. Southwell believes that well developed muscles are a part of the good Christian's equipment, and he keeps his in working order. We regret to be called upon to chronicle a late mishap to Prof. Wm, Colby of Wesley. But fate is against us as it was also against him. It seems that last week lie smiled upon Fred Amesbury and a companion and upon inquiry remarked that he was smiling to see what fools they were, Amesbury was offended and replied that he was not an educated fool, which the professor considered a personal remark. Other words followed, also a whack from the professor's cane, also a whack from Amesbury's fist on the professor's eye. Altogether the professor is sorry that he smiled. Hereafter he will contemplate the folly of the world with a straight face, at least until the swelling goes down so he can smile. Seed Flax. Cleaned from foul seed, $1,10 per bu.
