The amount depends somewhat on the number of acres of state land in a county. From Milbank Review. A deal was completed Tuesday through Joseph Roggen buck whereby the J. C. Van Ash farm in Geneseo township, Roberts county, was sold to Thomas Hicks of this city, Mr. Van Asch taking the Hicks home in this city as part payment at a value of S3,500. The consideration for the farm was $8,800. The many Milbank and Grant county friends of the Hicks family will regret to learn that they expect to move to Watertown about Oct. first and make that city their home. Wm. C. DePield, one of the very early residents of Milbank, coming here in the late 80'.«. answered the final summons at 5:30 o'clock on Saturday evening, August 23, as the result of ex haustion and cancer. Mr. De Field was one of the oldest and best known engineers on this division of the Milwaukee road and from the time the Milwau kee built in here up to about six years ago he was busy pulling trains in and «it of Milbank. For the past six years his health has been very poor and he has worked but little. For three weeks previous to his death he was confined to his bed the greater part of the time. The deceased was born in Detroit, Mich., Sept. 12, 1852. and had attained an age of 60 years. Wm. Westenfeld, one of the prosperous farmers residing just over the line in Roberts county, Geneseo township, dropped dead about 4:00 o'clock Tuesday after noon while at work stacking grain. Mr. Westenfeld was on the stack when he was suddenly stricken with heart failure. His bedy rolled of the stack to the ground. He had been in appar ent perfect health all day and the end came absolutely without warning. The deceased came here about three years ago from Eustis, Neb., and bought the home farm in Geneseo township and also a term in Melrose town ship on which his son, Wm. Jr., resides. He was close to 60 years of age and is survived by his wife and four children, all of whom are at home with the exception of Wm. Jr., who resides in Mel rose township.

There was once a (log who used to ?o to market wif.Ii his master every morning. lie was always given a cent to buy meat for himself. If the hnteller took the money be fore he gave him the meat the dog would growl and show his teet.li. One day the master was called away on business and was gone for several days. On his return he told Romp to bring him his slippers. Komp did not obey, but slunk into a corner, and the slippers could not be found. Some hours later the gentleman went to the postoltiee, and Romp went with him. As he passed the market the butcher asked him to step into the store and gave him his slippers. Romp had carried them down one at it time to pay for his meat. A Picnic Stove. In a practical article on "Picnics and Campings." published in the Woman's Home Companion, appears the follow ing: "Picnic cooking. If In Inexpert hands, will undoubtedly be better over a stove than an open Qre. But you cannot carry a stove on a picnic or camping expedition, nor need you. A piece of thin sheet Iron, thirty Inches long by eighteen inches wide, is all the stove you want. This lid across two little banks of earth, with the 6re between, or two logs with the Are between, forms an excellent stove and not only makes It unnecessary to wait for em bers for good cooking—since the flames cannot reach the food through the sheet iron—but Is in itself an excellent griddle for making toast and flap jacks." A Peculiar Animal. One kind of African mice we seldom see or read about Is the little elephant shrew. It Is barely four Inches long, but the trunk and shortened tall com bined give It another four or Qve inches. The fur, though drab instead of gray, la otherwise like that of a chinchilla, as al.so are Its large and delicate ears, while both In the forma tion and the manner of using ita legs It reminds one of a new species of miniature kangaroo. It has swift leap ing powers. It will tuck up Ita append ages and, like a ball, roll over and over in a straight line and after a meal, which occurs at very short Inter vals and consists of several mouthfuls only, quite surprises one by standing stock still, apart only from a gentle quivering of the trunk. Betty'» Visit. Betty was shy, but when Aunt Anna said, "Will you come and see me, Betty?" Betty would say, "Yes. thank you." One day when Betty had gone all by herself to pay a call Aunt Anna gave her a nice piece of cake with cur rants In It and said. "Now I think you will like that." But Betty said, I shall take It back for Baby Tom, If I may. for Baby Tom Is too small to come and see you by himself." So kind Betty took the cake to Tom and told him she would like him to have it as be could not do aa she had done and go alone to see Aunt Anna. Hew Would She Knowf George, aged Ave. was out walking one day with his father and mother. He asked his mother to go to his aunt's house. His mother said.
