A tobacco shed on the farm of John Prescott blew down during the storm Monday evening, also a portion of the hitching shed at the Liberty church. The rains of Sunday morning and Monday evening effectually put an end to the longest drouth in the history of this vicinity. The rain of Monday ev ening was close to cloudburst in volume but strangely little damage was done. Lightning struck S. E. Simonsen’s residence Monday evening. It entered the upper bed room and seemed to go out near the same place. The family were in the kitchen at the time and were considerably stunned. Martin Jargo returned to Vernon county Monday where he is buying to bacco for the Pinkerton Tobacco Cos. He said the valley tobacco in Vernon county is the finest he has seen. It is large, sound, and the most of it topped. Auto For Sale. A used five-passenger touring car, in good running condition, having a de tachable tonneau, and easily converted into a milk or market wagon—just the thing for farmer’s use—can be bought for a very moderate price. For partic ulars call on Fred Carrier, 34tf Edgerton, Wis. —Pure cider vinegar for pickling at Corn’". Cambridge The tobacco is fairly springing out of the ground and the outlook now is de cidedly encouraging. The soil in these parts ~ has a wonderful recruperative power. Knute Henderson was in Chicago last week, an invited guest to a grand ban quet held at the Union League Club, given by the Consul Haugan in honor of Hon. N. A. Grevstad, newly ap poited consul to South America, and the following evening at a banquet giv en by the different Norwegian societies in Chicago. This was also in honor of Consul Grevstad. About 6 o’clock Monday evening dur ing the severe electric storm, Harry Goodrich’s barn, just east of the vil lage, was struck by lightning and burned to the ground, together with the silo and sheds. No live stock was killed but all of Mr. Goodrich’s hay, grain, etc. , was consumed, which leaves him practically without feed for his stock this winter. The insurance was something over SI,OOO which will not cover the loss. Many friends of Mr. Goodrich have offered to help him tide over this disaster, and all will extend sympathy and such aid as is in their power to give. Our railroad is again out of opera tion. This time as a result of disagree ment between the company and the village in regard to water. The R. R. Cos. has been taking from the fire hy drant and paying for it at the rate of 15c per tank, we are told. Some time ago the village served a notice that after August 15 no more water might be taken from the fire hydrant. This time has just elapsed and as no other arrangements have been made, Supt. Dalamater jias put his engine in the shed. How long this condition will con tinue no one seems to know. Stoughton The Allen Alme cottage in Rock Elm Park, at Kegonsa, was destroyed by fire early Thursday morning. A num ber of young men occupying the Rob erts cottage near by discovered the fire about 4 o’clock, which had then gained such headway that the boys could do nothing to check its progress. The fire was undoubtedly of incendiary origin, as Mr. Alme and family had not been at the cottage since Monday. A torch had probably been placed under the front porch, as the porch was entirely consumed when first discovered. The loss on building and furniture will amount to at least SI,OOO and falls heavily on the owner who had no insur ance on either building or goods. Lightning caused the loss of a big barn on the 0. A. Kaase farm at Utica Wednesday afternoon. The sons were away from home and .there was no member of the family on hand to save the contents except the aged mother. However, Christ Onstad and a farm hand had taken shelter at the place from the storm and on seeing the barn burning they immediately removed a team of valuable horses and saved what loose property could be readily found. The bolt had gone through the hay and set it ablaze. There were about 30 tons of timothy and considerable marsh hay, with about a hundred bushels of oats. The property was insured for a small amount in the Albion Mutual. Lake Kegonsa, where tranquillity reigns supreme, is soon to know the thrill and excitement of a water carni val, arrangements being under way for the holding of such an event on August 27th. These preparations are in the hands of a committee consisting of Messrs. George Parker, A. F. Testal and Dr. Helm, and though the location of the tournament has not been defi nitely decided upon, it is quite certain that it will be held either in front of Parker’s cottage or else out from Rav enswood Park. There will be motor boat and sail boat races, as well as tub races, swimming contests, canoe tilting and other aquatic sports, and suitable prizes will be offered in all of the events to make competition worth while. The entries are free to all, and anyone who has a desire to compete in any of the contests is asked to com municate with some member of the ar rangement committee. How’s This.

Mr. Stevens will be remembered as a for mer resident of this city. Little Ben Ellis, who was run down by a freight car that was being switch ed near the depot Thursday evening, crushing his right arm and leg so badly that amputation was necessary, died on the operating table a few hours later. The child was watching the loading of the Kit Carson Wild West show, when the car backed down on him, throwing him under the wheels. He was hurried to the hospital, but died while being operated on. Ben was a son of Mr. and Mrs. B. R. Ellis and was only seven years old. Notable Catholic Services. A notable day to Catholics of Sheldon was August 15, memorable to a class of Sunday school children numbering 55 as the day of their first General Com munion and to the whole congregation as the first High Mass of Rev.
