Both the big hail storm of two weeks ago and the whh'lwind of a week ago Saturday evening ai'e reported in Wright county, which lies southeast of Kossuth, both doing great damage, The Clarion Monitor in its report says: Last Wednesday was a hot, sultry day and towards evening indications of rain were apparent. Not far frotn midnight the storm came, and 60 far as wind, rain, and hail is concerned it was the worst in the history .of the county. •It came from the northwest and passed in a southeasterly direction through Norway, Clarion, and Bluine townships, the principal damage being done in the first two. The greatest damage in this county was in Norway township, where the crops of nearly a score of farmers were rendered almost worthless, while a few in this township fared but little better. On Saturday evening another storm of the same kind came up about 7 o'clock, reaching out a couple of miles on either side of the track of the first one. The rain not only fell in torrents, but hail also, and large fields of oats, corn, barley, and wheat in Norway, Belrnond, Clarion and Iowa townships were badly injured, the loss being estimated at from 30 to 50 per cent, of the entire crop. Up to date 55 losses have been reported where the parties had insurance in the Farmers' Mutual Hail company of Iowa, (as we learn through W. W. Sheplee,) and it is not probable that over one-half are so fortunate as to have insurance. Those who have been over the ground estimate the entire loss to be fully $20,000, about one-third of which is covered by insurance in the company named. Steps ai*e being taken for the adjustment of losses and when completed wo will publish the same. AT IRVINCTON, IOWA. Fancy Patent Flour, per sack, Bed Rose Flour, per sack, . . .

Phil. C. Hanna is encouraging the cause of reform in Eagle Grove. His last advertisement reads: What's the matter with Hanna? He's doing his best to be "all right." Don't you gals and boys want to help him to be good? The way to dp is to patronize the Venezuelan. Temperance Drug store. You. eatvHSuy. anything you need there for lessy.mqney than at any other place irf'Ea'gJlerGrov'e,'and at the same time will show that you have a practical interest in the cause of temperance by helping to sustain one temperance drug store in this city. Don't you want to help the church of this city without costing you anything? If so, trade with us, for we propose to give 15 per cent, of bur sales to the churches of tbis city for the next 60 days. Fifteen per cent, of our receipts on Monday will go to the Catholic church. Fifteen per cent, on Tuesday to the Baptist. Fifteen per cent, on Wednesday to the Congregational church. Fifteen per cent, on Thursday to the Methodist church. Or those who buy of us after this date can pay their bills on the day of their church or the church they wish to assist. We want to help the churches, so do you, and by this plan it won't cost you anything. You simply " press the button," and we do the rest. Or, if you don't care to help these churches we will give you our regular discount check good for 10 per cent, of the amount you buy. We will now see how many citizens of this moral city are consistent in their interest in the churches and in sustaining a temperance drug store in Eagle Grove, Polllver's Plan of Campaign.

Mr, Dolliver is making preparations to make the fight of his life and has the utmost confidence in his ultimate success. His campaign will begin early and he will be in it to the finish, He proposes to inaugurate a novel method of campaigning, which is likely to become very popular with we constituents. A large tent has been secured, capable of seating more than a thousand people, and with that he is going to go through the district, making every point where he can strike a telling blow for his party, Where the fight is thickest will be seen the white flapping canvas of Dolliver's tent, and he will draw more people than a three' ring circus, ^ ^ A J^ucUy StroHe o* I4|fUWiw«.
