MADE A BAD MESS OF IT, An Effort to Pull the Hotel Orleans for Selling' Beer Lands the Pullers in Jail, The Atrny Wofm an Its Travels—A Big Kbssuth County Farm Northwest Notes. A new shape, the nicest in town, so some of the ladies say. JUST IN. M. Z. Grove & Son. TELEPHONE 19. "We have just gone through our stock and have a big lot of remnants of all kinds, which we are selling at prices The Hotel Orleans is in evidence again. Last week Milford citizens got to a white heat about alleged beer sales and made a raid. Milford is in the south end of Dickinson county and the hotel In the north end. The Mil- fordltes reached the spot they were looking for and found the contraband goods. But before they could dispose of them a bright idea struck the north enders. The hotel is now In an incorporated village of Minnewaukon, and the mayor of the flourishing summer town got on his dignity and'moved down on the Milfordites and put them all under arrest for invading his domain. They were hualled oft' to await a hearing, meantime the beer was removed from sight, and then they were turned loose again. They sadly and slowly wandered back to the south along the reedy banks of East Okobojl, and us the Mail solemnly announces: "Again the liquor dealers have thus thwarted the fair execution of the law." Army Worm Invasion. The farmers near Mason City are becoming thoroughly alarmed over the army worm which has already reached Cei'ro Gordo county. They are much thicker in some places than in others. Their plan of attack is to gather in a single field and devote themselves exclusively to this. Alvah Pedelty down on the old Lincoln farm In Bath town has lost nearly his whole crop. His neighbors, the Kuppingers, are not believed to be much better off. Mr. Simpson, on the Ed. Randall farm about four miles southwest of town, has lost practically his whole crop. A 35 acre field of oats he set fire to and destroyed most of them. Samples of the worm have been brought to town and they are recognized-as the genuine army worm. They have much the same appearance as the ordinary grub worm. They attack everything before them and respect no kind of crops. They eat the heads right off all kinds of small grain and grass, and strip the leaves of the corn and destroy the tassel. T"N Below the Cost to manuiacture. Come now and get a bargain. G. L.

" It comprises 480 acres and there is not a foot of waste land in the entire farm. It is second bottom land and the depth of soil not known, as no wells have been sunk but flow wells. It is perfectly watered, be-, ing crossed by the Blue Earth river. Its flowing wells are among the best in this part of the state and clear, pure water flows from these wells to the amount of at least 1,000 barrels daily. Though Billy has this farm quite well stocked, he loses annually thousands of dollars by not having enough stock to drink up this great waste of water. When business resumes normal conditions, this farm will make Billy independently rich in a very few years. Floods at Sioux City. Sioux CITY, July 26.—Many blocks of paving were carried out by a furious rainstorm here this evening. Business streets in low-lying districts were under water for a time. The railroad tracks near town were badly washed in several places. The most serious damage, however, was to standing crops, which were beaten level with the ground all over the adjacent territory. No accurate estimate of the loss can yet be made. . Wliat 10 to 1 Means. Bailey: A Winnebago county farmer came in to Forest City recently and said: " I ban a 16 to von man.

Mark Twain once wrote a paper pointing out the appalling danger of going to bed as exemplified in bills of mortality. For one person who died out of his bed several hundred succumbed in bed, and now we have Mr. Ashby-Sterry drawing attention to the same thing. Hitherto he has hymned in graceful verse pantalets, frills and the tempestuous petticoat, and now, quantum mutatus ab illo Hectare, he lauds the pyjama. In a recent number of The Graphic he says: "I have a theory that most people catch oold at night after they are in bed, and it is to this foot that I attribute a great deal of the violent colds, the bronchial catarrhs and influenza which have recently been so prevalent. The temperature goes down suddenly in the night, and people catch oold when they are asleep without knowing it. This eril is to be counteracted, not by piling on a lot of heavy blankets, but by wearing thick, close fitting garments of a py- jamalike nature and warm socks on the feet. If this system were adopted, I am quite certain that it would be found beneficial" There is common sense in this, People unquestionably may catch cold in bed, especially if there are at all restless and so kick the bedclothes of, In that event if only olad in a thin cotton nightshirt they are sure to catch oold, whereas if olad in pyjamas, not necessarily thick, but made of some woolen material, the chance of a chill is much lessened.-—London Lancet.
