, Call for Temperance Convention. A mass meeting, of the friends of pro- '.hibition in Kossuth county will be held in Algona, at court house hall, Tntifts- DAY, JUNE 4,1891, at one o'clock, for , the purpose of organising the county for effective resistance to the effort which is being made to reinstate and ; again legalize the open saloon in Iowa. We invite the attendance of pastors • of churches, Good Templars, members • of the W. C. T. U. and prohibitionists generally throughout the county. The approaching crisis demands at -our hands early and thorough prepara- ; tion, as the enemies of the law are vigilant and unscrupulous. All opposed ;to the return of the saloon, and in favor of maintaining and enforcing our prohibitory law, irrespective of party, .are earnestly invited to attend and participate in the meeting, thereby showing that their sympathies and influence are on the side of the home.

Weaver arrived home from Nebraska last Wednesday being .accompanied by her daughter, Mrs. D. L. Newton and two children. She was called to Orchard, Nebraska, the 3d of May by a telegram annoucing the death, by suicide, of. her son-in-law Dwight Newton. No particulars were given in the telegram. Mrs. Weaver, •since her return, hands us a copy of Public Opinion, a paper published at . Nelighj Nebraska, from which we glean the following particulars: About four o'clock on Saturday Mr. Newton left the depot and walked down the track to the end of a grain warehouse. Here^he stretched himself on the ground, placed a revolver against his right temple and fired, the ball lodging in his brain. The shot attracted the attention of P. A. Elder and Jason Bester, who went to the spot and found him as above described in an unconscious condition—the revolver still in his hand. lie died in about an hour. The reason for the • rash act was given in a note which lie left and which reads as follows: Whiskey is the cause of this act. May God's blessing always be with my babies and wife, and may the good shepherd watch over them and care for them, and provide for them. Oh, the - curse! Howl have fought it night and day! but no use; God's will be done. DWIGHT NEWTON. Of the character of the deceased the newspaper says "he was highly respected by all who knew him. All Orchard will mourn the loss of their gentlemanly agent. Some of his acquaintances and business men cried over him like a child, showing the feeling they had for the departed. • — t-*4O**4 SCHOOL LAND SALE. The. Decorating' Committc.
