Another barn fire, that seems to have been set by somebody, illuminated the sky last Thursday night. It broke out in P. C. Wilson's barn and took the Gilmoro barn and two stacks of hay. Mr. Wilson's horse was badly burned, but is not yet dead. Frank Nicoulin is getting out advertising matter for his Minnesota lands. He covers a largo part of Big Stone and Traverse counties, has cheap railway rates, good local agents, and big lists I of cheap lands.

John Goeders went up to Seneca and invoiced tho stock for tho stockholders of the co-operative store. It amounted to about enough with the building to pay outstanding The stockholders who put in §50 anil §100 each will get practically nothing on their stock. Hon. Peter Melendy, who selected the Iowa Agricultural College lands in 18(12, and who found 20,000 acres in Kossuth, promises to write a sketch of his trip in this county for our readers. He has always been a prominent man in this part of Iowa and his reminiscences will be very entertaining vending. The court room was crowded for the lycoum program, Saturday evening. At its close a permanent organization was formed. A second program will be given this coming Saturday evening. Everybody takes to the idea and Algona will get entertainment and profit out of the winter's work. Prof. Spencer is the right man to take hold of the matter. Mr and Mrs. John Heckart are very poorly.

We have heretofore referred to a big mortgage which the Chicago & Nortu- OT tern railway company is obliged to have recorded in every county through which the Northwestern line runs The mortgage is for a $165,000,000. It is due 90 years from date and expires Nov 1, 1987. It contains 88 closely printed pages and contains between 25 000 and 28,000 words; it will cover as nearly as can be estimated at this time 100 nages solid record of the county's big books.

A surprise party that was a success was planned for Mr. and Mrs. Lewis H Smith last Wednesday evening in honoi of their 25th wedding anniversary They were invited with a few friends to Jas. Patterson's for lea, and when i about 8 o'clock they returned to their home they walked in upon 125 old friends, who had in their absence taken possession. They noticed that the house was lighted up more than usual, but thought some one had called. They had not the slightest intimation of a celebration until they found themselves surrounded. Congratulations were showered upon them, and then they were seated in the bay window as though for a second wedding, and Rev. Sinclair, in behalf of the company presented them with a beautiful silver water service. Mr. Smith responded in a few words, which fully expressed the feelings of both. A social visit and refreshments from the well filled baskets of the visitors added to the en- iovment of a pleasant evening. Both Mr. and Mrs. Smith are among the earliest of tho county's pioneers. He came in July, 1855, to assist Gov. Carpenter in the government survey of the northwestern corner o the coun- tv and she was a member of the W nit- ins ville, Mass., colony, tliAt had come from the east in May of the same year. This was 42 years ago, along time in the history of a new county, and the first summer after the earliest settlement had been made. During all, theso years both have enjoyed in the f ullefat measure the esteem, the hearty good will, and lasting friendship of all who knew them as pioneers, or who have met them since. The friendly greetings that welcomed them on their anniversary in their home are only a faint expression of the general esteem in which they are held, and all the county will unite in honoring them for then- good work, and in wishing them a safe journey to the next milestone.
