The l,ndy Who Bled at irvlngtoa Is Burled In Weslcy-a School Entertainment. WESLET, IS ov. 23.—Mrs. William Tower of Irvington township, who is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. U. .f. Bidgood of Wesley, died Saturday, Nov. 20, of pneumonia, bhe was sick but a few days, but in spite of all the medical skill there was no hope for her. She leaves a family of six little children ranging in age from 3 to 14 years. The funeral took place hero Monday at 1 o'clock conducted by Uev. Plummer and the remains were interred in the Wesley cemetery. Mrs. Tower was but 33 years of age and it is sad to think of ono so young and in the prime of life leaving her husband with the care of those little ones who need a mother's care so much. The funeral was largely attended by sympathizing friends. The entertainment given by our public school scholars last Friday night was a sucv cess from start to finish, netting them $31.1)0 which goes to pay for the first set of music books ever used in the school. Prof. Brown and his able corps of teachers are to be praised for tho energy shown in this enterprise. The program was a good ono and was well rendered. There was a large and appreciative nudionco out to hear, it which pronounced it ono of tho grandest and best school entertainments ever given in Wesley. Our public schools nre well attended and it is conceded by all our best citizens that Wesley has as good schools and are as ably conducted as any schools in this part of tno state. more is a good town and Mr. Taylor will give It a good store. In Algona he has made many friends and become known as a reliable and obliging business man. In his new venture many good wishes go with him. Mrs. Geo. B. Reed, county superintendent of Clay county and widow of Algona's well known former normal teacher, visited In Algona over Sunday. She was re-elected this fall and will serve two years longer at least as superintendent, a position she has filled with great credit since her husband's death. Many friends welcomed her in Algona. Uev. Landis Is to be in Humboldt next Tuesday for the annual camp flro. Al. Adams gives him this candid send-oft: "All who have heard Landis talk at a camp fire are glad that they were in the war—if they were, and wish they had been if they were not. Ho is a whole camp tire and a bean roaster besides. Every old soldier should bo present and bring his family." Frnnk Miles and John Connors were up from Liveimore to consult Clarke & Cohenour about suoing the Northwestern for a prairie flre that burned out tho big slough down near LuVerne six weeks ago. borne of Connors' hay was burned, but tho chief damage was to tho slough which now has from one to two feet of ashes. Henry Curran and others are damaged. It seems that tho track hands set tho flro, and it slumbered in tho peat so that they did not notice it.

Mrs. Johns of Kansas Will Toll Wliy Next Monday Evening. Next Monday evening at 8:15 o'clock Mrs. Laura M. Johns will speak in gona at the court house on woman suffrage. The Phoenix Herald of Arizona says of Mrs. Johns: Her clear and powerful reasoning, together with her earnestness and the absence of every vestige of boldness and masculinity usually attributed to the advocate of woman suffrage convinces those who hear her. Mrs. Johns is one of tho closest reiisoners on the theme to which she is devoting her life, and it is refreshing to hear a womun of her nobility and modesty. The Pioneer Press of St. Paul says: The feature of the evening session was the address of Mrs. Laura M. Johns, president of the Kansas W. S. A. She made a logical and convincing address. Her reasoning was clear and powerful, and with her ease and gracious manner, she had no difficulty in retaining the interest of her audience throughout her address, concluding amid great applause.

Nothing like a complete announcement o its literary features can bo attempted now Dr Weir Mitchell, whoso novel of th American Revolution, "Hugh Wynne," i the Kreat success of tho year, has written a new story for tho present volume. It boar tho piquant title: "Tho Adventures o Francois: Foundling, Adventure, Juggle and Fencing-Master during tho French Rev olutlon." The tale is full of romance an adventure. Mrs. Burton Harrison contributes a now novel of New York life, called " Good Americans," in which contemporaneous social types and tendencies are brightly mirrored and described. . There will bo a group of clevor stories about horses and people who like horses, under the general title of '• Gallops.' 1 "A Woman's reminiscences of tho French Intervention In Mexico" will bo given in a series of graphic and highly picturesque papers by Mrs. Cornelius Stevenson. Further contributions to tho interesting series of " Heroes of Peace" will bo made bv Jacob A. Rlis, Gustav Kobbe, Elizabeth Stuart Pholps Ward, and others. For tho benefit of readers of The Century an unusual combination offer is made for- this year. There has been issud " Tho Century Gallery of Ono Hundred Portraits," made up of tho finest engravings that have appeared in tho magazine, and roarosonting a total expenditure of nearly $80,000. These arc printed on heavy plate paper with, wide margins, like proofs. The retui price of the gallery is $7.50, but this year it will bo sold only in connection with a subscription to The Century, tho price of tho two together being $0.50 Is very desirable on some occasions, but when the turkey is the subject and Thanksgiving is the occasion you feel better satisfied if the roasting is done brown. You cannot hope to have it this way without a GOOD ROASTER. "Economic Roaster Our meets all desired requirements. It is self-basting, roasting the fowl uniformly without attention from the housewife. You can place your roast in the oven, attend divine service m the morn- fne, and have your dinner on time just the same—the roasting doesn't stop for church or anything else. Another feature about the Roaster : when not in use as a roaster you have two eood-sized drip pans to use for baking bread. It makes a tine steamer. Nice oat meal cooker.

Miss Edith Clarke Williams started yesterday for Erie, Pa., where she will make her permanent home. A C Dudley was up from Des Moines Friday working on the Luud-Russ cases for the coming term of court. Mr and Mrs. Chas. McCoy are down from Minneapolis for a visit at the Geo. E.

Next week he goes on to New York City to take a post gradu ate course in one of the big hospitals. . The best specialist in Denver tells Howard Wallace, aon of Dougal Wallace, that he can come home In the spring. He says he can find no trace of lung trouble now. Will Purvis, whose art work was talked about so much at the Algona exhibit, is dp- ing crayon enlarging for a big house in Chicago and is already making from fct to $5 a day. We predict that he will be a well known artist in a few years. While in Des Moines E. B. Butler did not see Secretary Fowler of the state agricultural society, and did not learn whether our county society will get 1300 from the state or not.

Bice's father: The many friends of John J. Curtis learned recently of his death with profound sorrow and regret. He died suddenly tho evening of Nov. 2 at the home of his daughter, Mrs. L. J. Rice of Algona, Iowa, whore he had been spending a few weeks. The deceased was born Sept. 23, 1820, in Massachusetts and spent his boyhood and early manhood in south central New York, whither hie parents had removed in his infancy. In the early fifties he cast in his lot with those who were seeking their fortunes in the great west, and settled in Lake county, Ind then almost a wilderness. Here, with his family, he endured the hardships of pioneer life, and in time reaped the rewards of industry. Fourteen years ago he came to Greencastle to spend his remaining years, gaining here a large circle of warm friends who were attracted to him by the strength and beauty of character. As one said who knew him well, 'He was a remarkable man in many ways— a man of the firmest religious convictions and the highest and purest motives, these combined and put into practice every day of his long life." Religion with him was indeed something to be lived, and it entered into all his relations with his fellows. It would be hard to find a kinder husband, a truer father or a firmer and more merous friend than he. Mr. Curtis had been a member of the Methodist Episcopal church for more than 60 years and a firm supporter of all that'is good. Though many years had passed over his head, he was still CASH GROCERY.
