Theo. Myhre of Estherville, who showed great staying powers on the bicycle at the Kossuth county fair two years ago, had a streak of real boaa fide hard luck at Kansas City last week, Se was in the big race for a $400 piano and was 200 yards "ahead of the head man, when his wheel broke. It was a ten mile road race and he was an easy winner, He seized an old machine and mounted again and came in eighth. The Kansas City Journal In reporting the race says: "The man with the real, genuine, all wool and a yard wide hard luck story, however, is Theo. Myhre of this city, who, with the piano all but in his grasp was thrown out by the breaking of a cone in one of his axles. At the time of the breakdown, which occurred at the top of Brush creek hill, on the return trip. Myhre was fully 200 yards in front of Kobelt and Burger, and as he was riding strong he would have undoubtedly maintained the lead to the finish. As it was, with a broken wheel,, he got eighth place." Myhre has been making great records this year in all the races. Miss SafTord's Mother Dead. Mrs. Louisa Safford, mother of Rev. Mary A.

Gilmore is one of a lot of Spencer merchants to sign the foliowingcard: As times are 'hard, as you are all well aware, and money is scarce, we have deemed it best for you all as well as ourselves to do only a cash business on and after Oct. 15, 1896. In so doing we can convince you that money will buy more goods than credit. If we get spot cash for our goods you all know we can sell much cheaper. ' Bailey Is Correct. Bailey quotes from the Farm Journal: "Tell Mary you love her just like you used to! It may surprise her but will do her good." Then he says: "Don't you do any such thing. We tried it and her husband came in with a neck- yoke and surprised us. It may have done Mary good but the jolting of the neck-yoke is not conducive to evenness of temper." Laying It to Babbits.
