The county has about completed a &£Lj? big hew vault in the court house base- «_«;,** ment where old records in the clerk's and auditor's offices will be stored. If it will now fix up the ceiling in the court room it will have done a good job. B. W.

The iiail came out through the top of his shoe, leaving toady have had big 1 bters IOT shares ib the concern, and have stowed awftv in profits soine $20,000. J. W.

The "newcomer" who discusses the \ hog question in this issue is not so very \newamongst us and ho knows somo- \tlungofhog8. We shall be glad to havo brief opinions from others on the questions ho raises for discussion. A son of Sam Scott, living near Whittornoro, was handling a gun last week, when it went oil, snooting away the muscles on his left arm above the elbow, and nearly taking tho bone. Ho will do well to save tho arm. The discharge was purely accidental. The general tone of the Chicago markets is a little bettor than last week. Tho local prices remain: Flax, $1.03(5) 1.05; corn, 30@40c; hogs, $3.25(a)$3.35; oats, 35@38o; hay, $4.00@$4.50\ Our report on.hay last week was incorrect, as hay has been at $4 for some time. Notice has been given tho Nebraska state militia to bo ready for the Indian outbreak, and Iowa comes next. We can imagine tho enthusiasm with which Company F would get ready to march against Sitting Bull. That would bo quite different from camping up at Spirit Lake. J. E. Paul was in to tell us that Swea don't pay tho best teacher's wages but that Greenwood has tho honor. Greenwood pays $42 a month, and has only first grade teachers. Swea comes next, and also has only first grades. Ramsay also pays big wages. Tho noz-th end is in for good schools. Tho jurors for the coining December term of court are: C. H. Blossom, C. Ward, C.

Court moots Doc. 8. Two copies of tho New York Tribune with tho editorial on Dr. Garfleld were sent to Algona. Fred. Bartlett sent one to his father, and Mr. Hopkins of New Jersey sent one to W. H. Ingham, Between Mayor Jones and tho doetoi vui_>i jj| vxnv* ivv m.v& WGg U II CV OL4J.U J.H this term of court to compel Callanan & Savory to remove the cloud made by their claim to swamp lands from some tracts belonging to the railway company, No appeal has ever been taken from Judge Carr's decision that Callanan & Savery had no title to the lands, and tho company wants them to remove the cloud at their own expense. The ,cttso will affect all the lands similarly situated. Geo. E. Boyle writes a letter to tho LuVorno News in which he repeats his story about Mr. Quarton, and discusses tho shortcomings of tho UPPER DES MOINES. Wo havo no space to devote to the latter. As to the former, Mr". Hlnchon, who got out the democratic tickets with Quartan's name on four years ago, says that he was given to understand that tho matter must be kept secret from Quarton or he would object and spoil the whole thing, and that as ho understood it Quarton knew nothing of the tickets until after they were distributed. This corroborates tho cards published by Quarton and Danson at tho time, and probably settles tho question of fact. Pat. Kain and Thos. Gilbride are two sons of "ould Erin" who enjoy talking over o_ld times in Kossuth. They both came in an early day from the same place in Illinois, and Monday they were speaking of the changes that had taken place since, when Gilbrido recalled an incident of his first visit to Algona. He had come up by where Watson's store used to be, and met Mrs. John Hutchinson, a sistor of Alex. Brown, and asked how much further it was to Algona. She looked at him a minute to see if he was joking, and then replied in her inimitable accent, " ye're right in the heart of the toon." He says when he found out this was so he about decided to go back, but he stayed, and rejoices now to think of the growth he has seen. Both men agreed that great changes had taken place in 30 years, but both look for much greater ones in the next ten. PEBBQgAL MOVEMENTS. Robt. Junkin of Fail-field spent Sunday at J. R. Jones'. A.

This is our former Al- gonlan, and his friends hero will regret to hoar of his misfortune. Frank Jenkinson was driving by the river north of town Monday noon, when a whittle tree broke, lotting the wagon tongue down, and throwing him over his hay rack head first, As he went he caught his finger in tho standard, snapping it square off, Ho camo to town at once and Dr. Barr fixed his hand. Ho considers himself lucky in having his corn all out and in the'bin. The matter of trying sugar boots is being discussed among a few. There is a prevailing impression that our soil is peculiarly adapted to them, and that tho successful manufacture of sugar is possible in this section. It will cost Httlo to try them in any event, and all our farmers should got a little seed, and seo what can bo done. They are a very profitable crop if they can bo raised hero. The fair given by tho Episcopalian ladies last Friday night attracted a big crowd to tho court house, where an elaborate supper was served and whore a great variety of handsome articles were for sale.

Drastic purgatives, by weakening the bowels, confirm, rather than cure, the evil.

"Having been subject, for years, to constipation, without being able to find much relief, I at last tried Ayer's Pills.

I would not willingly be without them," —G. W. Bowman, 26 East Main St., Carlisle, Pa. "I have been taking Ayer's Pills and using them in iny family since 1857, and cheerfully recommend them to all ia need of a safe but effectual cathartic," —John M. Boggs, Louisville, Ky.

Then I began to take Ayer'a Fills, and soon the bowels recovered their natural and regular action, so that now I am in excellent health."—S. L. Loughbridge, Bryan, Texas.
