ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

Kalona

Iowa’s corn crop is now estimated to be about 268,672,000 bushels, far more than any other state in the union. In addition to her great corn crop, Iowa grew 141,875,000 bushels of oats, 24,230,000 bushels of wheat, 14,300,000 bushels of barley and 3,545,000 bushels of rye. This crop represents over $100,000,000 in earning for the farmers of Iowa for the year 1898.

The Sharon High School is a go. The board of directors were legally organized as follows: E. C. Stutzman, president; Ezra Yoder, secretary; P. F. Schwimley, treasurer; and G. W. Wagner and Max Halter.

Last Sunday evening quite a number of John Troyer’s friends gathered together to help get his horse out of his well. It had gone down for water.

The Kalona Athletic Club will meet at Jess Kauffman’s restaurant Saturday night.

A sad accident befell the little babe of Mr. and Mrs. George Stump’s last Monday. The child was sitting in a high chair near the stove, while its mother was working in the kitchen. Hearing a noise, she hurried into the sitting room and found the babe tipped over in the chair with its face against the hot stove. We understand the babe was badly burned on the face, but not fatally.

Wellman

John Shettler lost a good cow yesterday by the lockjaw route.

D. G. Schwartzendruber will make a public sale. He will move to Dan Berkey’s farm, east of Green Center schoolhouse. Chris Bender, a son-in-law of Samuel Guengerich, will move to the place D. G. vacates. It is known as the Denny farm, and is owned by Mr. Guengerich.

Miss Salome Peachy, of the Lower Settlement, came from Kalona today to visit at the home of Jacob A. Miller.

Mrs. Royer and daughter, Carrie, started Monday to visit at the home of David Royer, near Algona. They will be gone a month or more.

Uncle Lewis Longwell got a bad fall a few days ago and is pretty badly crippled up in consequence.

Riverside

Our people have been quite busy in legal affairs for a week past. The first was the state vs. Frank Stadlo, for cruelty to animals. It was claimed he let his team stand to a hitch rack from Saturday afternoon until sometime on Sunday, when the marshal took charge of it.

Three of our young men were taken before Squire Pearson for trespassing last Sunday on the premises of L. F. Woodburn in Highland. The cost of each one was $4.25.

And last, but not least, the powers that be got into the grumbling room one day and caught four boys there at work. They were promptly taken before Mayor Coleman, who gave them $20 each and costs, as I am informed. One of them paid his and the other are paying theirs by letting Sheriff Teeter feed them in his hotel. This maybe punishment. It is a disgrace no doubt, and I question it being any punishment to the inmates of that bastile.
