Haggard & Peek, [Successors to Jones* Abstracts, Real Estat^,^Sr Collections, AkGQNA, Joseph Valley, brother ef Valley o! KoSauth county, a Beimoad plasterer, was accidentally shot while on a hunting trip in Hattdobk county, fie was 88 years of age and his funeral was attended by the Valley family, which lives west of Armstrong. Circumstances indicate thtft he met death While pulling his gun from the buggy. The presence of a jack rabbit and some young prairie chickens in the buggy indicate that he was probably hunting on his way as he journeyed homeward, and that seeing something which he wished to shoot he had alighted from the buggy and was drawing the gun toward him from the bottom of the buggy where it was lying, when the hammer caught upon a board which projected downward under the seat and was drawn backward enough to discharge it. The fatal shot entered the abdomen a couple ot inches below the heart and was probably instantly fatal, as the place where he lay gave no signs of any struggle, while the features of his face were in quiet repose as if he had died without pain. Little or no blood was found upon the ground, and the doctor is of the opinion that the bleeding was internal. The front of the dead man's shirt was set afire by the blaze of the powder and burned a hole probably 10 inches in diameter before it was smothered out, probably by the weight of the body upon it against the ground. Emmetsburu'B Now Banli. The Democrat says of the new banking institution soon to begin business at Emmetsburg: Colonel Ormsby informs us that the Farmers' Savings bank will be organized at once, and will begin business August 1 in the rooms occupied by the Bank of Em : metsburg, which will become an institution of the past. It will commence business with a capital stock of $25,000, and will have at least 50 stockholders. At least half of them are farmers and the others are prominent business men of Emmetsburg. Colonel Ormsoy will be president of the new institution, and the probabilities are that Oscar W. Hodkinson will be cashier. The bank will be incorporated under the state laws, and will do a general banking business. Colonel Ormsby, who is at the head of tbe enterprise, has been engaged in the banking business in this city for twenty-five years, and it must be admitted that his responsibility is, above question; that he understands the banking business thoroughly, and that he is an enterprisfng citizen. The backing of sucti wealthy citizens as T. J. Tobin, Charles McCormaok and others will add greatly to the financial and business strength of the institution. . Lost a Child's Grave. In December, 1886, Daniel King and wife near Cor.with lost their first child, and as the snow was very deep and the weather bad they concluded to, bury the child near home, which was done west of town near the county line. In the spring when Mr. King went out to locate the little one's grave appearances had changed so much that he was unable to do so, although, as Mr, King expresses it, he "searched a hundred times." E'or some time past J, W. Oxley has been grading the road between town and the county line, and on last Wednesday one of his scrapers came Jn contact with a box which proved to be tbe one containing the remains of the child. It is needless to say that the remains were taken to tbe city burying ground and laid in their last resting place, Paul Bonstetter and family of Garfield township had a curious runaway accident last week Sunday. The team became frightened and at the end of a smart run came to a dead stop against a post. Paul, his wife, three children, and the hired* man were all thrown headlong out of the wagon and were all more or less bruised up, the second child being hurt the worst. SEMI'LOOAL NEWS NOTES, Miss Mabel Cook, daughter of Judge Cook and a student in the state unl* varsity, is author of a really beautiful little poem in the July Midland Monthr iy. ^ ^ ^ Miss Jessie Barnt, a teacher in the Algona schools last year, goes to Wall Lake, The Sao Sun says; MissBftrnt Is an experienced teacher, having been employed last year in the Algona public schools. The Wall Lake school board was fortunate in beipg able to secure her services. -*--*- •*• The Emmeteburg Reporter commended the Kossuth supervjiore on the expedition with which they turn off work. This called out a vigorous raking over $he coals for the, Palo AltQ " from an indignant tax pay "I believe the enttr§ „ _ be asked t* resign if any gpod." *„„„ —s te a law pasied ftt the* last session of the legislature 1 all County bridges must be numbered at each end. The numbering begins at the northeast corner township of each county'and continues in the order of the Sections. Hafdtn county ha& let the job of numbering 821 bridges. The numbers are paltited in black figures upon a white board 4x8 inches in size. H- •*• -i- The Brotherhood of American Yeoman have an organized lodge in Em« metsburg with a membership of over 80. At their next meeting they will initiate five new members. The Reporter says: They are mostly young men and this makes the organization that much stronger, as it will tend to keep the death rate to the minimum, -f- -f- 4- The Armstrong Journal likes to ease its conscience by telling beer stories on temperate Kosauth. Here is the latest: What would have been considered a great calamity in some towns happened at the depot Wednesday just before the noon train left. There was a large consignment of beer to be shipped to Buffalo Center and Thompson. One case was dropped while the boys were put-, ting it in the express car and 16 bottles broke and the contents spilled. If that had been in any of the towns in Kossuth county the bystanders would have thrown down their handkerchiefs, let them soak full of beer and then chewed them like gum. -H H- •*• That was a mean trick the Humboldl fire company played on a business man there one hot day last 'week. They asked him to build a bijr fire of some dry goods boxes, and then they would summon tbe fire laddies and make a f ood run and extinguish the flames, emonstrating to the inhabitants how securely they might sleep nights, knowing that their interests were being watched by a band of carefully trained athletes. The LivCrmore Gazette tells the story and says: The boxes were piled up and fired, and the firemen swept majestically down upon them, but when they were ready to throw water the apparatus was out ot repair and they went buck. The'fire builder then carried water in a pail to quench those flames, and while he sweat and worked in the heat his remarks were not complimentary to fire companies.
