Catarrh IS a blood disease. Until tne poison In i expelled from the system, there nun bo no cure for this loathsome anil dangerous malady. Therefore, the only effective treatment is a thorough course of Ayer"s Sarsaparllla— the best of ull blood purifiers. The sooner you begin the better ; delay is dangerous. " I was troubled with catarrh for over two years. I tried various reuir.illen, and waa treated by a number of physicians, but received no benefit until I began to take Ayer's Sarsaparllla. A few bottles of this medicine cun-il me ol this troublesome complaint ami i-inn- B letely restored my health."— JUKVII M. ogg». Holman's Mills, N. C. "When Ayer's Sarsaparilla wii* in.-- ommended to me for catarrh, I \vus inclined to doubt its efllcacy. Hu\inx tried so many-remedies, with little benefit, I bad no faith that anything wonhl cure roe. I became emaciateil from loss of appetite and impaired digestion. I had nearly lost the dense of umell, anil my system was badly duranccil, I *n» about discouraged, when a friend urged rae to try Ayer's Saraaparillu, ami referred me to persons whom it hud cured of catarrh. After taking half a dozen bottles of this medicine, I am convinced that the only sure way of treating thla obstinate disease is through the blood." — Charles H. Maloney, 113 Itiver at., Lowell, Haas.

A Ramsay citizen named Johnson has gone to Illinois with his wife to get $3,000 that is there for him out of an estate. Geo. B. Clarke got tho settlement arranged. A lot of young people en joyed a pleasant picnic south of town last Thursday. An elaborate supper was spread by the ladies, and the gentlemen arrived about 6 o'clock to indulge.

Heflry Thompson was over from Whittemoro Monday. In spite of the new creameries he says the amount of butter has increased this year very much with thorn, a fact duo in part to bettor pasturage. E. Tellior and Chas. Parker are to accept tho challenge of Hedrlck and Benjamin to pitch colts for a series of games. Great interest will prevail when tho games begin, as the pairs aro so evenly divided. A case of diphtheria is reported in the family of Mr. Wilson on the Joslyn farm in Cresco. Tho young lady came on a visit when she was taken, but she is getting well and no fears are felt of a spread of the disease. The county suffered a loss in . the death of the fine stallion owned by C. B. Hutohlns and "Robt. Stophenson. He was taken sick lost week and died suddenly. He was a finely brod animal, and was getting good stock. An appeal has been taken from Superintendent Carey's decision in the contested school site case'near Bancroft. W. B. Quartan will try and convince Superintendent Sabin that the present location is not desirable nor proper. Ben Smith was in town yesterday. He says they are cutting oats in Ramsay, and that crops are farther along there than here. Fifty bushels of barley is the yield up there. ' Everything is booming in that neighborhood. Mike Smith, tho old timer in tho southern part of the county, was in town Monday.

His hand and arm were badly swelled, and for a timo the worst results wero feared, but he is all right again. The UPPER DES MOINES has reason to feel proud of tho variety and excellence of the letters from all parts of the country it has been able to furnish to its readers. Col. Comstock in this issue tells in an entertaining manner of Spokane, and everyone will bo pleased to read his hopeful accounts. Colfax is getting u good patronage from hereabouts. Harry Walkley has spent considerable time ut the springs, Gotllcf Bqbn was there a week ago, and H. S. Langdon stopped there some time on his way cost. We hear that considerable Colfax water is shipped in and drunk in town. It bus been rumored that an original package house was to be started in the naint shop south of the UPPER DBS MOINES office. Fortunately some difference about tho rent broke up the trade, It is said, however, that after ono is started and tho ice broken that some more will open in town. A foot race Monday evening drew the crowd to the west side of the public square. Link Singleton and Fred. Fostefhad it out again, and Link came out a little ahead, ' This probably means another big race for tho championship. Other races wore promised but failed to materialize. The democrats bold their county convention Wednesday, July 80, at the court house to send delegates to the state, congressional, and judicial conventions. Seven delegates go to the state convention which is called at Cedar Rapids, Aug. 6. Thoro will be 85 delegates in the county convention. M, DoL. Parsons reports that no serious injuries wero suffered by his family on the Fourth, although nothing but a steady team prevented some of them from being killed, As the wagon tipped over he was able to stop his horses, and so, though the children lay under tho wheels, all escaped. Another witgon Jn tho jam tipped his over, ' We give elsewhere J. II. Warren's comment on alfalfa us an available grass for this country, Ho indorses it highly, but we leurn that it has been tried at the agricultural college, und was not made much of a success. It does not grow no largo a leaf nor HO luioy us in the western countries. Still it Is worth while to wtttch it hero. We learn that A. L. Sueley has a small patch of it on his farm. Sheriff Stephens was up in Ramsay last week to secure JakoKoppen, whose wife complained that ho had been handling her roughly, At first she camo to Algona to start u divorce suit, but was persuaded to not begin so serious a proceeding, and u, contract sot- tlingcertalndillerenceswasdrawn.

It Is the- intention of the driving park association to have It.wiaened otit and leveled, Tha •otto' elation started in 10 or 12 yeai-s'ago With 20 hundred dollarshares. Ninety- one dollars has been paid on each share and gone Into improvements and purses, and the association has never yet declared a dividend, The amphitheatre, horse barns, and track, were all made With its mohey, and it has In other ways added to the comfort and • appearances of the grounds.

She Is a resident of Oregon, to which state, in company with several other former Kossuth county people, the Hatch family migrated several years ago. The family was well known here, being among the many settlers who came to this county about 1860. They lived on a splendid /arm about two miles oast of Whlttemore, which Mr. Hatch took as a homestead and Improved until it was one of the best farms in the county. Tho Oregon fever captured him, as well as many others, and he sold out. Mrs. Hatch has much to say that will bo news to our readers. She is a widow now, her husband having died a few months since. The children, ol whom thoro were several girls, ore all married nnd well situated on farms near Portland. She tells us that Mrs. Mart. Pierce, who wont out there at a later date, has recently died. She had remarried after leaving hero. Jim. Taylor, who never thought much of this " darned crab-apple country," is getting along well. Both the Taylor children have been married for some time. Capt. Call IT lind others, who also settled near Portland, seem to bo prospering, also. Tho Van Auken family is also there.,. Henry Van Auken will be remembered as the one who developed into a sort of a' preacher, but his eloquence in that direction does not appear to have impressed itself upon tho people out there any more than it did In Algona. Mrs. Hatch finds many old-time friends hero, with whom she Is enjoying a pleasant time. Sad Dentil of Mm. Myers. The death of Mrs. B. A. Myers occurred at her home Thursday afternoon. After passing through the pains ' of child birth without trouble, she was taken with spasms and gradually sank in spite of medical aid. A brief funeral was held at tho house Friday evening, Rev. Bowon making a few remarks and reading' the Episcopal service, after which the remains were taken, to tho Milwaukee depot, and accompanied" by Mr.' Myers and his mother and Mrs. Myers'mother, were taken to her Old home in Illinois, where they will be interred by those of her father. Mrs. Myers came to Algona with her husband about throe,years: ago, and has been a resident since.'' She was admired by all who know her, and was a lovely, genial, and home loving woman. She was an .ardent 'Episcopalian and a worker in that church. In all her relations to tho community she so conducted herself us to win esteem and affection. ' Her death,•seemingly sadder than many others, coming as it did; Und leaving two small children without a mother, will bo mourned by everyone. Mrs. Myers' maiden name was Grace L. Trotter. She was in her 20th year, and had been married since March !!0. 1880. Death of Mm. HcBnrty. The unexpected death of one of Kossuth's old settlors occurred Sunday evening at 7 o'clock in tho departure of Mrs. Hegarty, who lived near the Milwaukee depot. She was sick but live days and failed rapidly. She came to Kossuth with Mr. Hegarty in 1801, and located on the favm since hold by them in Plum Crook township about three miles northeast of Algona. Mrs. Heg- urty was born in Ireland, Oct. 4, 1805, was married in her native land in 1887, and there aro buried six of her children. Already at middle age, tho family cume to this country in 1850, and five years later to Kossuth county. Two children died here, and only one son is left of the family. Mrs. Hogarty was 85 years old, and had lived 54 of them with her faithful husband. Her death will cause many an old settler of the county to mourn. She was known to all who lived hero in those early years", and tho ties of old association bind more closely as the years pass. The funeral is held this afternoon, Father Nioholls attending, as always In life Mrs. Hegarty was a faithful member of the Catholic church, A Happy Marriage. A wedding occurred yesterday at the residence of our .esteemed townsman, G. M. Howard, The contracting parties wero Nora E., daughter of Mr. Howard, and E. C. French of Humboldt. At 1:80 o'clock Rev.

The matter of making an exhibit this fall at the state fair is being talked bf some, and In view of the fact that the couhty is -pretty, liberally, repro'se'fiterj in the management, it is hoi more than proper that we should do it; As & rector, S.

Wadsworthisthe asslStanl Superintendent and will be actively at work during the fair week, while. M. Stephens is assistant marshal, bf the grounds. This gives Kossuth all due prominence, and with such an exhibit of produce as we cbuld easily make, there is no reason why we should .---nol bo the banner county. The state fair this year will excel all previous ones The premiums amount to $35,000''in cash, and as tho association is money ahead, everything will go as advertised Dos Moines is making extra prepara lions to Illuminate and prepare for the occasion.

She was stolon some '1! years ago, and Mr. Smith offered $100 reward for her, but nothing was over heard of her, and thought of hearing had long since vanished, when yester day Win. F. Smith came up-from Webster City with her old collar, nnd the story of her loss.

All eastern .Washington, western -Idaho, and portions of eastern Oregon are supplied from this city, with cur loads of camp and mining supplies sent into the Kootenal • mining regions, in the British possessions, and northern Idaho. The money transactions,as reported through the eight • national banks would make the ordinary Iowa banker green with envy. Tho Northern Pacific Railway company are making extensive, improvements in the eastern portion of 1 the city in building freight and passenger depots. Their depo ts and yard tracks are In tho very-heart of the city. They are to bo moved a half mile to the east. The clearing of the ground, of the rock and boulders, .from 10 to 30. ^eet in height; over the forty acres of ground, thiit'they, must occupy, is no sm$l item. The blasting all through the:, city, a few moments after 12 and "6 p. m. reminds one, for a few litomonts, at least, of the thunders of Gettysburg. That company will probably spend,, a quarter of a million in impi-oveinents hero this season. X •' > This city contains one of tho'ilnest individual electric plants to be found in the west: Tho Spokane river makes a scries of cascades and falls within the city limits of about 130 feet in height, and gathers itself together from behind the several islands for one grand plunge of nearly sixty feet. The electric light und street railroad plants, and in fact all tho motive power to run the numerous industries of tho city, is here obtained. I dropped into a printing office a few days since for some work, and see ; ing no engine, asked what power 'they were using, They called my attention to an instrument, occupying the space of an ordinary sewing machine, saying, "thoro is our two horse power electric motor, and by simply moving that hand on tho dial plate, wo turn the power on or off. That co$ts us $13' per month; wo run throe presses, and a more steady motion could not be desired." I understand there aro about 60 of these motors In use in the city. Spokane is well lighted with about 200 arc lights, with 5.000 incundesce.nts in use through tho city, tho Sgioknno hotel alone using 800. As one gets into tho swim of financial, real estate, and general commercial transactions in u western city of this character, the saying of Bacon is brought very vividly into prominence, especially in the mind of the humanitarian. Ho suys ' 'the f oily bf one man is the fortune of another, for no man prospers us suddenly as by others' errors." I cannot my whether natural gas is indigenous to this soil and climate, or an exotic, but certain I am that it is hero, Listen to tho enthusiastic Spokanjte, and visions of .the Now Jerusalem, painted in tho most glowing terms by the ancient prophet nnd psalmist, pale into insignificance in comparison with the grand city that is to spring into exist- eiico in a fow years in the valley bf the Spokane. As I listened, the old fueling erupt through mu, a.nd, I thought, I was surely born to bo a doubting Thomas. Then as I passed along I thought to myself that tho doubter hero as in tho past is a necessity, • to hold in steady oaulibrlum some of the visionary souls ofhumanltyr But, jest- Ing aside, my couildouco in SpoKuno Fails is not shaken in the least. Tho mining interests ulono, ovon though no tuoi'o wero discovered, uud they are opening rich wines every day, would build iv largo and prosperous city. Uuetern Washington and western Idaho comprise an extensive tract of country, containlm/ today tho finest wheat belt in tho United Stu,toa with gold, silver, und lou,d mining unsurpassed, water l>owor unlimited, and hundreds of small uud thriving towns springing up, that naturally demand u. sort of : m,otropo- lls somowhoro froin. which to. draw tue supplies, Spokane's locution, in tho v.ory coutor of this vast trust,' 4(K) mllps, moots this uwoaalty, and mu^t ovuu iu tho ostiumto ol tho most con- uv.outuully i'ouvh quite THE CASE IN A NUTSHELL. >• When Duby was sick* wo gave her Cuitorin. ; When she was a child she cried for Castorla, < When she became Hiss she clung IOCnstoruV' When she hud Children she gave them CastorlK.
