Mr. Henry Meyer was almost a victim but came to Algona with a copy of the contract they had induced him to sign for a lifc- tle advice. He went to J. B. Winkel who discovered a promise to pay upwards of $100, hidden in the contract with a further promise to pay 75 cents per foot for all rods required over and above 85 feet. Mr. Winkel advised him to go home, load his shot gun, and shoot the first man that attempted to climb on the barn. Mr. Meyer took the advice and the swindlers have left the country. He arrived home just in time to find them making preparations to put the rods on his barn but they left in some haste when he massed his forces and commenced to train his artillery. Their swindling operations around St. Joseph were doubly culpable owing to the methods they employed to get into the confidence of the people. They first called on Rev. Anler of the Catholic church, representing that they were good Catholics. They mounted his house with rods and refused to accept any pay for the job. In return for the kindness Rev. Anler mentioned them in the pulpit the next Sunday morning and advised his people to buy of them in case they had any need of lightning rods. With the recommendation of the priest to help them they commenced their harvest next morning. People will learn after awhile that the lightning rod agent is not to be trusted.

Archibald Gillinglmm, well known in this community, died Thursday morning at the Wilwaukee Soldiers Home. The lirst impression of the family was that the remains be brought and buried here in charge of the G. A. II. Post. A special meeting of the Post was called to deliberate upon the matter. Members of the post were conversant with the honors conferred by the state at the deceased inmates of the house at Milwaukee, at the time of burial as well as the subsequent care of the soldiers' cemetery, and felt incompetent to undertake the task as it could not give a more honorable burial or a more litting resting place. Upon second thought the family concurred in the decision of the Post, and the funeral was held at Milwaukee Saturday afternoon at two o'clock.—B. Colic, Diarrhoea, Dysentery and all kindred complaints arc dangerous if al lowed to run any length of time.

Catarrh Is a constitutional and not a local disease, and therefore it cai-vuot be cured by local applications. It requires a constitutional remedy like Hood's Sarsaparilla, which, working through the blood, eradicates the Impurity which causes and promotes tbe disease, and Catarrh effects a permanent cure. Thousands of people testify to the success of Hood's Sursa- parllla us a remedy for catarrh wlicu other preparations had fulled.' rJlp'odfa Sursaparilla also builds up the whole uystem, and makes you feel renewed iu heoUU iiiid strength.
