Until toe poison la expelled from the system, there can be no cure for this loathsome and dangerous malady. Therefore, the only effective treatment is a thorough course of Ayer's Sarsaparilla— the best of all blood purifiers. The sooner you begin the better ; de^ Is dangerous. " I was troublw* with catarrh for over two years, I tried various remedies, and was treated by a number of physicians, but received no benefit until I began to take Ayer's SftrsapariHa. A few bottles of this medicine cured me of this troublesome complaint and completely restored my health."-^ Jesse M. Boggs, Holman's Mills, N, p. ''"When Ayer's Sarsaparilla was recommended to me for catarrUi I was in» olined to doubt its efficacy. Having tried so many remedies, with, little benefit, I had no faith that anything would cure me. I became emaciated from loss of appetite and impaired digestion. I had nearly lost the sense of smell, &na iny system was badly deranged, J was about discouraged, when a friend urged me to try Ayer's Sarsapanlla, and referred me to persons whom it had cured of catarrh.

A, BRUNSON For Recorder M. F, RANDALL For County Attorney W. B. QUARTON 1 fl W ' TTP'F'F'R^i For Supervisors... j QJJ A NT BENsbHOTER The outcome of Friday's convention s known over the country, and is not materially other than must have been ixpected. There was no trading on tny nomination. Every candidate was he high man in the convention. He vas nominated because the delegates ivere there believing he was the proper man. No candidate was nominated by any section of the county. Mr. Brunon was named for clerk practically by acclamation. Dr. Peters was enthusiastically endorsed by acclamation. Mr. Benschoter received the solid vote of he county on the ballot which nominated him. Mr. Randall received votes rom three wards in Algona, Buffalo, iresco, Greenwood, Hebron, Portland, Plum Creek, Prairie, Ramsay, Sherman, Union, Wesley, and Whittemore town- hips, on the ballot which nominated him. Mr. Quartan received votes from hree wards in Algona, Burt, Buffalo, Jresco, Hebron, Irvington, Portland, 'lum Creek, Prairie, Riverdale, Swea, Iherman, Union, Wesley, and Whittemore townships, on the ballot which lominated him. While the nominees ,re residents of Algona it cannot be aid that locality cut any figure in the nomination, for Mr. Randall did not u the solid Algona vote, and Mr. Juarton got only eight of the 15 votes >f town, while both of them had votes rom the extreme outside, townships in 3ach direction. The convention recognized that in all but supervisor, loca- ion cut no figure, as in any event coun- y officers would have to reside at the ,ounty seat, and voted for the men they preferred. In nominating supervisors he convention met with the request of he north by chosing Dr. Peters, arid in VIr. Benschoter chose a man located to •ery equally balance the board in the ,ounty. The convention was throughout marked by good feeling apparently, ind the nominations were made easily. Cigars and apples circulated freely, Congratulations were plenty, and ad- ournment was in time for all to get home. As incidents of the convention Mr. Daniels, Bancroft's new banker, made a good speech in presenting Dr. Peters. Mr. Quarton also responded to call with a brief and pleasant speech. Pr, j. Q, Ayer ft m* i Personnel of the Candidates—Political Meeting to be Addressed Mr. DoliSver and Others. The Candidates. A. A. Brunson came to the county with N. B. Benham and took a home- itead in Lett's Creek township. He vas elected from there to the office of county superintendent. On the resignation of Geo. E. Marble he was appointed by the board to fill the vacancy n the clerk's office. In this brief time le has mastered the details of the important office, and has given entire satisfaction to the lawyers and court, as well as to the people. We beleive 10 is eminently fitted to render efficient service, and that is a high compliment for, although poorly paid, the clerk's office is not only one of the most important, but also most difficult positions to fill. No one at all acquainted with Mr, Brunson's work will offer any objection, on the ground of fitness, to his election. M. F. Randall came from Mason City some years ago to take a position as miller in Algona. He has followed that business since, and has been first a good miller. He has also been a good citizen and in every relation to the community he has enjoyed the respect and esteem of all. His nomination was a compliment to him and his election will insure faithful and efficient service in office. The county has no bettei men than Mr. Randall. W. B. Quarton was raised on a farm near Oskaloosa, graduated at Oskaloosa college, and the Iowa state law school at Iowa City. He came to Algona some eight years ago to begin his profession, and has in that time built up a fine business. His numerous cases on each term's docket speak for his legal prac tice, and his support from all parts o the county indicate that he possesses general esteem. Like all attorneys he has made some enemies, but we believe no one will dispute that he is well and fully qualified to act as county adviser His election will secure one of the best attorneys in the county in a responsible place, and one who will fearlessly at tend to the enforcement of all laws. Dr. G, H. Peters came to J^ossuth few years ago on account oi^nia health and opened a large farm three miles southeast of Bancroft. He has beei supervisor one .term, and his active am intelligent attention to the onerou duties of that position secured him the rare honor of a unanimous re-nomi nation after he had almost positively re fused to accept, He is one of the bes members we nave had on the board and his re-election me»na a continu anoe of good service. Grant Bensohoter is a native of Kos suth, his father, O, Bensohoter, beini our pioneer blacksmith,. Grant ha grown up with th,e county, and is nov pwnw of aj 1 - ' ~ '- *•*-corner of. iromP, ~_ ins$o» wp m it brings put i , th , farm in Creek fernj, e northeas PQt f« ^ nom not only becaus and sub, epresented. Many wanted the nom* ipee still farther east, but Mr. Ben- choter we beleive will be found to be ery fairly located by all who consult bie map of the county. He will be an A, number one" member of the board. The ticket as a whole presents five xcellent, well qualified citizens to the ounty. No obfectkin to their compe- ency can be raised. If any one votes gainst them it will be for other reas- ns. It rarely has happened that a ettor ticket more fairly nominated has een presented, and it should receive he hearty and unanimous support of 11 who believe that republican organ- zation is worth maintaining in the ounty. The Routine Report. The convention was called to order iy J. B. Jones in the absence of Senat- r Chubb. Harvey Ingham was chos- n chairman, E. Bacon and B. F. Reed ecretaries. A committee on ct'eden- ials consisting of J. B. Jones, W. M. Moor, and E. Tellier was appointed by he chair. E. B. Butler, G. Cowles, vnd M. B. Chapin were appointed on permanent organization.

Speaking of Lincoln, who appointed-, lim to the supremo bench, Justice Mil-'" er once said: " He was the purest, implest and frankest man I ever' He had a great deal more sagacity th: he world gave him credit for and ne tnew how how to manipulate men- When he talked he spoke from his heart, et he could not be induced to talk when he did not want to, and he got his reputation for story telling partly on this account. When he was asked to ex- ' press his opinion he would turn the con-V rersation by telling a story, and he pf- v ien got rid of disagreeable persons 'in.«. his way." The last time judge Miller, 1 ,'!? jaw Presided,Lincoln was at the 'In'/s augural ball at the time of his second^ election. The president was talking*-. with Charles Sumner when Justice Mtf-Aj? er came up. He turned to him with'<; _reat cordiality and said: " How are the justices and their gowns?" Judge], Miller replied that they were all _ ,nd presently Lincoln went ,.gn: "Milrv, er, vou were brought up 6^ a farm, ' weren't you?" "Yes" replied the Judge. "Well," said President Lincoln,'' 'you must have seen the breakingfor and and the burning of timber in a clearing. You have seen the bark fall off of a half-decayed log while out from under the bark would come great winged ants, which would waddle off with the funniest kind of clumsy dignity. Do you know, judge, I never see, one of you justices with your gown oa> jut I think of one of these ants which we used to see on the farm in clearing.?' Justice Miller was an intimate friend of Henry Clay as well as of Blaine, r~i speaking of them he said: " P- 1 - and Clay are very much alike. Blaine has the same courage, the magnetic influence and the power oy§' men that Clay had. Their careers hav;e,, jeen much similar, both have been Ben/ 5 ators, both have been beaten for the,'' presidency, both have been speakers o£, <; ihe house, and both have held much.'!, the same ideas as to political matters,' ' Blaine has great executive ability, and BO had Clay. I doubt, however, whether Clay would have made a good presW dent and still I would have liked i ~* have seen him elected. I would for once to see a great political" leader in the white house, and - r ,,-,, t tired to death of seeing characterless men simply because the politicians hate- the leaders and cannot consent to see them win the great prize of politics, ' & would like to say good-by for a tims M negative presidents, and to see how 1jhe> country would get along under a ppsi* tive one.
