\ ESTABLISHED 1866. ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 8, 1892. VOL. XXVII-NO. 11. The Grange Store, 4 Carpets, Dry Goods, GROCERIES, ETC. [Read, Ponder, Reflect, And Keep For Future Reference. You know that nearly every dollar you pay for flour and mill Istuffs that is shipped in, you pay the freight on, and the profits to line dealer also. Most of this money goes to help build up some jotber town or city. Now is this right, just, or fair? Is it not your l«uty and for your better interests to help build up your own town land city, encourage, and sustain home ENTERPRISE and IN- JDUSTRY, other things being equal? Speaking of flour: In this •connection permit me to say that a loaf of snowy white bread is •nice to look "at, so are many things we see that we had better keep lout of our much-abused stomachs, I am clearly of the opinion, |after many years' experience in manufacturing flour, and from close "observation, that the great suffering among our people from INDIGESTION, CONSTIPATION, and attendant troubles is traceable to bread made from the fine, dry, starchy " Fancy Patent" flours, |Which become stale, chippy, and tasteless in a few hours; contains but little of the gluten, or nutritious part of the wheat. Hence, I nave, after these many years' experience in milling, changed my .system, discarded «> Fancy Patent," and make only the " PATENT [WHOLE WHEAT" flour, thus giving you all the pure flour of the •wheat berry. The bread from this flour will be spongy, moist, sweet, Tand nutritious for days, and like the bread of our grandmothers be pvhite enough for THE QUEEN. I have several thousand sacks of this flour on hand, made from elected hard wheat. It is excellent, and EVERY SACK WARRANTED, Will you try a sack? If it don't please, it will cost you nothing. Is npt this fair? I make for the present the following very low prices for choice articles at my mill, or flour and feed store: patent Whole Wheat" flour, per sack $1.10 *ranam, per sack 5° ye, per sack 75 Buckwheat, per sack 75 -°rn Meal, per sack. .< 25°ran, per 100 \ 65 shorts, per ioo..

THE WEEK'S IOWA NEWS, Tom Calvin broke out of the Clarinda asylum and returned to Can-oil last week. As his malady was as violent as ever he was immediately apprehended and placed in the hands of Sheriff Hamill. Tom some months ago while enjoying liberty, it will be remembered, walked all the way from Carroll to Clarinda, gave himself up to tho superintendent and demanded admission for treatment. Ex-Gov. Buren R. Sherman sustained a severe fall Thursday morning. He was standing at tho head of n stairway leading into tho basement of tho Kirkwood house and was attacked with vertigo. He fell, striking and breaking a heavy window at tho foot of tho area. A small artery in the forehead was severed and tho blood flowed copiously. The gentleman was taken to his room, where the cut was found to bo not dangerous and Mr. Sherman soon recovered sufficiently to get about. It was a narrow escape. It was rumored some time ago, says the Sioux City Journal, that there would be no encampment of the national guard this year, but at that time there was every reason to believe the rumor incorrect. It is now unofficially announced that such is the case, and that instead of the regular encampments the entire Iowa guard will go to Chicago to assist in the ceremonies at the opening of the world's fair. It is probable, however, that there will • be a general field day before that time, in which regiments may get together. H. C. Wheeler, Site county's famous farmer, has 2,200 to 2,800 acres of land plowed for corn. With favorable weather he will finish planting this week. He is still confident that Iowa will grow a fair crop this year, though much less in the aggregate than in 1891. Mr. Wheeler still.has 60,000 bushels of corn in his cribs, all of which will stay there until the outcome of this year's crop has been definitely defined. He raised 90,000 bushels last year but has fed out one-third of it, which is a clear indication of the magnitude of his farm and stock business. a per centage of losses of 33.2 per cent. The figures of the fire insurance companies are especially interesting at this time, as it is known that the companies are contemplating an increase in the premium rates on the alleged ground that tho losses of the past year have been so great that they cannot afford to do business without a change, "it would seem, however, that the claim of the*companios is hardly justified in the face of the above showing. It appears therefrom, says tho Sioux City Journal, that the companies have been collecting nearly 100 per cent, more than they havo returned to tho policy holders, and this proportion ought to be enough to pay office rent, commissions, etc., and still leave a handsome profit over to tho stockholders.

Smith, an alleged Odd Fellow who has been victimizing the fraternity all over the country was arrested at Port Dodge last week and has been held to the grand jury on the charge of obtaining money under false pretenses. Smith arrived in Dayton Monday and presented an order for $40 on the Dayton lodge from Austin, Texas, lodge. The fraternity at Dayton had been warned by a newspaper clipping and after paying the order had Smith arrested. The prisoner broke away from the constable and fired two shots at his pursuers before being recaptured. A telegram from Austin states that he is a fraud who has stolen the lodge seal and check book there. The DOS Moines Capital is responsible for this: There is a railway station west of Fort Dodge called '' Tara." All the place lacks to be complete is to add "boom-de-a." • Nine prosperous farmers living in the southern part of Woodbury county along the Missouri river were arrested and taken to Sioux City, where they gave bonds to answer to the charge of larcency. Among the number was A. J. Westfall, a prominent alliance agitator of the peoples' party, candidate for governor last year and for congress the year before. They appropriated paving blocks and lumber which had floated down the river after the floods there, and the owners identified them in their farm yards. A condition of affairs exists at the Webster City cemetery, says the Herald, that is a disgrace to the city, and should be attended to at once. The body" of Mrs. Dr. Crapper, who was one of the honored and respected early residents of Webster City, was placed in a brick vault several years ago. Recently the vault door has been broken open, the lid of the coffin removed, and the skeleton, partly covered by decayed clothing, exposed. There is something inexpressibly shocking in the state of affairs and somebody should make it their business to see that it is righted. Paulina has ayoung man so absent minded that he forgot to eat and then wondered why he became hungry. The other Sunday he took a young lady to church and left his charge to go home alone through the rain, while he retired to his room and wont to bed with his clothes on. The Iowa insurance report for 388| baa been issued by Auditor kyonj, J?ur« In commenting on the ncquittal of John Nowton, who was shown beyond tho question of a doubt to havo puddod the mails that his road might receive compensation for carrying many tons more of mail than thoy really hauled, tho Dos Moines News siiys: "The acquittal of John C. Nowton, bused upon, legal refinements about tho definition of tho word conspiracy, is a disgraceful occurrence. It is such prostitution of forms of justice that makes anarchists, and breeds among the masses, who havo no such exemption from punishment for crime, a distrust in tho integrity of our over-technical legal system. No one will protend that if Newton had boon a man without money or social position he would have been able to make the winning right that was made by Newton through his high-priced counsel." There seems to be good prospect now for the erection of a tin plate mill in Iowa. The officials of tho Santa Fe road have interested themselves in a proposal looking toward the location in Fort Madison of a factory backed by tin plate manufacturers of Wales and iron workers in Chicago. If proper inducements are offered it is said that a factory employing 400 men can be secured for that city. For the first time in three years the prohibitory law was invoked at Davenport last week. Several wholesale liquor dealers who retail in small packages to consumers declined to pay the $200 license charged on saloons with which they compete. A justice court trial resulted in a draw. Mayor John C. Bills at once took steps to enjoin Hanse Bros., who wore particularly defiant, and a few hours after the application was filed the money was produced for the license. ing the year the life J^EGAL, BLANKS-T- J. W. Geiger of Marion, in his decoration day address at Webster City, delivered an eloquent tribute to the volunteer soldier. Not satisfied with this he made some vigorous strictures upon the regulars, saying among other things that " the regulars would rather rest than fight." All the veterans present, both volunteers and regulars, repudiated this as an uncalled for insult to a large body of the best and bravest soldiers of the union army. The reverend gentleman's otherwise eloquent and patriotic address fell very flat accordingly, and nothing but indignation was expressed by those who had invited him to speak. Good Looks. Good looks are more than skin deep, depending upon a healthy condition of all the vital organs. If the liver be inactive you have a bilious look, if yom- stomach be disordered you have u dyspeptic look, and if your kidneys be affected you have a pinched look. Secure good health and you will have good looks. Electric Bitters is the great alterative and tonic, acts directly on these vital organs. Cures pimples, blotches, boils, and gives a good complexion.
