A few months ng-o tho German people itt all parts of tho world held meetings to celebrate tho !)0th birthday of the greatest military genius of Europe of WB generation. Now they are called upon to mourn his death. Von Moltke was Scotch by descent. Ho was born in Denmark and began his military career in tho Danish army. Soon ho wont to Germany and engaged in tho Prussian army. Ho was already sixty before his groat military knowledge 'brought him popular recognition. Bismarck's policy against Austria was BO immediately successful because Von Moltko had tho Prussian army ready, and.the campaign already mapped • out. Before tho Franco-Prussian war ho had plans already submitted for covering ovory mile of French territory., and tho Gorman armies followed linos ho had studied for years. It is said ho had ovory nation of Europe .whipped on paper. Ho himself, howovor, was a man of poaco. Ho novor engaged in battle himself, and was peculiarly peaceable and domestic in disposition. Ho was above all silent and .taciturn. It was said of him that ho could hold his tonguo in cloven languages. Ho was a great linquist, a musician, gave much time to farming, and was a much beloved man by all who knew him. Tho affection of tho "Fadorland" for him was intense. What Emperor William and Bismarckplanncdlio made possible. Ho was not least of tho,great trio who made .Gorman unity a .fact, and established .tho groat empire which stands today ,a monument of progressive .liberalism in government, and a mighty bulwark against barbarian invasion from Russia. His success was solfmado. Tho honors ho nocoivod wore .conferred 'for meritorious .service of tho highest order. In his death .the world loses a groat man. ' thumb and forefinger of right baud by explosion of dynamite. He had put in the blast ana then went to dinner. Coming back, the blast hot having gone off, ho was holding the cartridge, pulling out tho fuse, when it exploded with above results. Dr. H. Heskett dressed the injured hand and also took a piece of dynamite out of his eye. He is doing as well as can be expected. Monticello Express: At Algona the question has arisen in the courts as to whether a wife is responsible for her husband's clothing bill. This question was long ago settled in Jones county, when a clothing merchant sued a woman for tho price of a pair of pants sold her husband. The judge in passing upon the agreed statement of facts as presented to ihim said that it was extremely desirable that the husband should bo clothod. and that it was just as much of a family necessity that he should be clothed warmly and comfortably as it was that the beds should bo furnished with quilts and the larder with provisions. The wife was held responsible for tho dobt, judgment was entered against her, and she satisfied it, Judge (Chase .of Webster City Monday evening after a short illness. died It is pretty certain that tho Iowa coal .mines will join & big strike to begin ,May 1, for oight.hours far a day!s work. It Is rumored that .all tho minors of tho ;country will go out on .tihatiday. Tho speech by which Forakor of Ohio angered President Harrison's Indiana friends was as follows.: "The republicans of Ohio cherish with grateful recollection and appreciation Uio name and memory of Abraham Lincoln. [Applause.] . They liavo a just pride in the stalwart and loyalty and patriotism of Grant [applause], and enthusiastic admiration .and .devotion for •the greatest living American— Jmnos G.. Blaino. [Prolonged cheering.] You all scorn to bo affected tho same way [moro cheering], and inuvy, for Mr. Blaino has given us a magnificent administration." fApplause]. President Thurston followed without referring to tho president, and tho mooting of republican clubs <at .'Cincinnati liad a lively session for .ivwMle. It was soon explained that no slight \wns Intended, mid resolutions strongly .endorsing .the president wore enthusiastically adopted. Congressman Dolllvor is to represent Iowa at tho mooting of tho National 'Tariff league, at which the most eloquent speakers of tho country will bo present. Cleveland's silver views are again in discussion. Some one last week reported a conversation in which the ox-president said iio could not tell what might bo wise in 1804, and that free coinage then might bo advisable. Cleveland says tho report was om- liellishod, but that in some points it gave what ho said. The whole matter seonis to put him in tho position of hedging ou his •recent latter, to conciliate western soaiti- aneiit. This has not boon oburnotoristiic of liim heretofore, and will lose him amount of respect If it proves correct. any THE BELMOND EXTENSION. J>r.. McCoy Writes a tiottor Urging jHibuqtio to Assist in Securing It. Tho following letter appears in tho Dubuquo Telegraph: Algona is much interested in tho extension of tho lino of railroad now terminating at Belmond, Wright county, this state. Belmond is about thirty miles from Algona, as surveyed by N. B. Everts of Webster City a few years ago, at tho expense of tho citizens of AlgOna, finding a very light grade between both points, in fact a groat portion of the way would require but very little work preparatory to laying ties and rails, no heavy bridge work, no heavy cuts, both essentials in keeping cost of building and (operation down (to .tho , minimum. Some of tho main things sought by Algona in the extension rif this lino is to secure connection with Dubuquo direct, and also to have tho use of the Chicago, St. Paul & Kansas City lino of railroad, tho non- pooling lino in tho state (though the inter-state commerce law forbids itthey do it all the same, or at least what attains the same ends.) Wo want to ha<vo closo connection with your city, the chief commercial city of the state. As we arc situated at present we have to reach your city in a roundabout way and tho lines centering here are interested in having Chicago as Iowa's business center, and want all to pay tribute to thoir Mecca. INow there is a good country tributary to tho projected line capable of supporting a railroad and furnishing a good amount of business out in tho way of all kinds of-farm produce,, etc., and requiring tho shipping in Of all kinds of agricultural implements, merchandise of all kinds, coal, salt, lime and other articles such as your merchants at Dubuque can handle at a rate that beats Chicago in competition. When your railroad lines centering there aro brought into competition with that groat help to tho country in keeping down freight rates, in tho fact that tho Mississippi river runs unvoxed to the sea, and now that Galveston is coming to the front, the river will out a moro important figure in tho .future, so you see there is mutual interest established between:us, and wo 'hopo your board of trade will take up tho matter and soo what >can bo done, and if a five per cent, tax can be secured this would almost grade and tio tho lino, and we think tho C., St. P. & K. C. would certainly operate it. Algona stands ready to do hor part; will Dubuquo help? H. C. McCoy, M. D. 'MBS. BEAD REPLIES. She Notices tlio.Crdfttclsm of thoMon- tlcollo KxproHB, nnd Defends Honest Discontent—The Nood of People to Direct Attention to Wrongs. To tho Editor: It has been suggested to me that an article in your colurns last week, clipped from the Monticello Ex- prose, calls !for a reply. Now I have always made it a point never to reply to personal criticism. It is no doubt useful for all of us occasionally to see ourselves as otlhers see us, although the view prove rather surprising. But as to the ..subject matter iof tho language quoted, your readers have only to open your paper of last week and they will find inside an article more than a column THE TOWN OF SIDEWALKS. Sidewalks and Shade Trees Are What Whlttcmore Boasts of—likewise a Healthy Boom for 1801. Arbor day was observed by the Whittemore schools. But it was observed before this spring by tho citizens. Bows of hard maples and elms have been set out along its streets, until it already has the promise of being a well shaded town and for every block of trees it has at least two blocks of sidewalk. It is safe to assert that ho other town in Iowa, that is not incorporated, has laid anywhere near tho amount of walk. The visitor goes anywhere on walks, and good walks at that, and before many years will go under the shade of fine rows of trees. All ho needs is to see a few safety bicycles on the walks to feel ho is in a city, and Whittemore will not be long behind even on bicycles. Among the new buildings already be- .gun this spring is the Baptist church, The rock are on the ground and a fine building will soon be up to divide attention with its Lutheran and Catholic brethren. The Lutheran church is but lately completed and is a handsome structure. Among tho residences the handsome one of Mr. Gootsch, finished last fall, attracts attention. L. Slaba is just finishing a largo house, Cory Ridgoway has tho ground cleared for a large, fine homo, C. C. Sampson who represents tho Paul lumber company will build, and Dr. Felling is also planning to have a fine homo this season, while J. M. Farley is making improvements on his already fine residence. Of tho rumored business houses no account need bo made. It is certain that a line bank will bo built. Mr. Ridgeway, who camo from Calhoun last fall, has been tho banker and now Goo. E. Boylo has joined him, and they are .doing a land office business, and booming Whittemore. The farmers' creamery is in operation but is having trouble in getting water. Goo. Hanna is the butter maker. Ho comes from tho dairy part of Iowa and will undoubtably succeed as the farmers have a« good plant and a good territory. Boardman Bros, are making repairs on thoir creamery and will soon open. Thoy have assurances of plenty of milk and Henry Thompson will have charge. Thoy have put in tho Babcock milk test, which is said to be the simplest and best in use, and aro making other material improvements. Altogether Whittomore is alive this spring. Tho visitor feels it in the air, and every citizen talks it. One good thing can always be said for our western neighbor. Its citizens always brag on their own home. That is more than half in making a live town. THE STATE CIONTEST. Miss Xrlzzlo Wallace Wins the Gold Medal at Monticello. Tho result of the state declamatory contest at Monticello last Friday evening is already known, and Algona has again won laurels. Our contestant, Lizzie Wallace, won the gold medal in the dramatic class against seven competitors, and with Prof. Dixson returned Saturday evening. Tho result was wholly unexpected, as this was tho first participation of our public schools in these contests, and is the more gratifying on that account. Miss Wallace .improved every opportunity to perfect herself after tho local contest, and in popular applause and in tho judges markings won her position. As the Monticello contestant was in her class from Algona. Mr. Clarke was a well known lawyer, having practiced in our courts, but was especially known socially in town having visited very pleasantly on many occasions. His death was caused by Brights' disease. In speaking of his illness The News said: "The disease had developed much more rapidly than is usually the case, being in an acute form. The symptoms of the dread disease did not appear till about the 1st of January, but the progress of the malady has been rapid. Mi 1 . Clarke took his bed about a week ago. Mr. Clarke was a man much valued by those who knew him best, and the intelligence of his fatal illness Will cause sincere sorrow. He was a man of fine legal ability and his character was above reproach. He is a brother of Col. Charles A. Clarke of Cedar Rapids, and his wife and daughter are regarded as among the most talented ladies of the city. The daughter, Miss Alice, is engaged in literary pursuits in Boston." PEESONAL MOVEMENTS. Mrs. Rev. Fuller is home from her Emmetsburg visit. Mr. and Mrs. Geo. L. Galbraith went to Chicago last week. Dr. Sayers is in Lyon county today by order of tho state veterinary. Mr. and Mrs. A. H.

Cedar Rapids. Hutchins are arriving Mon- jona after cader, and years Tho cordial expressions of tho press all over the state and this district ought to porsuudo Senator Funk that his intention of retiring from tho senate is not endorsed, and u cardinal principle in politics that a.mau should yield when ho knows publte sentiment.

Corwith C'roscont: Frank Wagoner, six miles west of Corwith, in Kossuth county, had the misfortune to lose his in which is presented more at length, and quite as staongly, another phase of tho same thought which I was feebly endeavoring 1 to sot forth. If anyone can road ttet article, written by B, O. Flower, and «ot either blush or weep, ho must have *v strange heart indeed. If any have mot read it I hope they will refer to it immediately. It paints a picture far more dreadful than we like to contemplate. But these wrongs will mover bo righted unless somebody Is willing to direct attention to them. I am glad to believe, as the Express says, .that "Iowa is full of loving and contented mothers"—particularly the "loving" part. As to "contented," there are many shades of moaning to the word. There is si divine discontent which underlies ail activity in the ainaotion of better things—whether physical, mental, or .spiritual—individual or social—whether pertaining 1 to this world, or the world to como. LIZZIE B. READ. AVouthor niul Crops. The state report, Saturday, was: Tho high temperature, frequent showers, and average amount of sunshine have caused a rapid growth of all vegetation, and greatly improved tho crop oulloolc. Winter wheat, grass, and most spring grain crops aro looking well. Seeding is practically completed, except in a few counties. Plowing for corn is in progress, and in a few southern counties planting has begun. The season has boon late, but all the conditions aro helping to make up lost time. 1' riut prospects continue very flattering. CALL and look over our harness, collars, pads, trunks, valises, etc. F.

Connor's Ilooms Fine liulldlng and as Monticello had for two won in this class, and as Monticello people made up tho audience, the decision of the judges was not favorably received, and a disgruntled report was sent to the Register. Aside from this, however, there was nothing to mar the pleasure of the occasion. The next state contest will be hold at Creston. Prof. Dixson began to work for Algona for the one following that and may succeed, though locations are sought long in advance. Only 15- schools are .allowed to participate. Those already in can remain, when one drops out a chance is open for a new competitor. Algona got in in Dubuque's place, and will without doubt remain. No better thing for our schools has over been done, and Prof.' Dixson is entitled to credit for securing the place, AN ALGONA ABOHITEOT. A A r lslt to T. II. Discloses Somo 1'laiin. In wandering about town Monday we happened by the residence of T, H, Conner and were invited in to see some plans ho has just finished for a two front building in Rolfe, with opera hall in tho second story. They showed the elevations of a very handsome and stylish block which would be a credit to any city in Iowa. Mr. Conner is also drawing plans for a two front brick block in Spencer, and a two front brick in Eagle Grovo, besides having completed plans for the three front block he is building in Spencer. In conversation about his work, Mr. Conner said ho was an architect 18 years in Quincy, 111., before *oming west, and had been all his life an architect and contractor. He has now decided to return to his old occupation, and will make Algona his headquarters. There is no more skilled draughtsman in tho state, and his designs for expensive and cheap buildings alike combirjo good stylo with convenience and economy. In all the places where he has done work thus far he is receiving now calls. That is anyone's best recommend, and has already secured Mr. Conner work from all over northern Iowa. Ben Smith of Ramsay camo in from Wisconsin last night. Ho was called to attend the funeral of his mother. J. W. Hinchon was over at Waukonto dispose of property there. He wants to invest all his money over here where tho boom is. Mr. Seberling, a member of the Waterloo school board, is visiting at J. C. Frank's, and was inspecting our school house yesterday. Prof, Simpson, formerly of our public schools, is admitted to the bar, and with C. A. Babcock of Humboldt will open an office at Sanborn. Miss Susie Gilbert returned last week from her Tennessee visit. She enjoyed the winter in the south, but finds Kossuth pretty well oil for climate on her return. G. W. Wheeler is out from New York visiting his brother, W. W. Wheeler. He will stay some weeks with his daughter, who has already been an Algona visitor for some time. Molzar Haggard is home from Milwaukee, where he has finished his business course. He will serve as stenographer for W. B. Quarton and Call & Cowles for the present; but he has an offer in Chicago which he thinks of accepting. D. A. Lyon, mayor of Cresco, M. M. Moore, and J. M. McCoy were in Algona Monday to inspect our system of water works. They were a committee here officially. They were highly pleased with our plant, and thought that when we got our well we would be nicely fixed. G. H. Shellenberger and his brother were pleasant callers Monday. G. H. was pitcher for the old Humboldt "Mo- docs," who were so valiantly challenged by the Algona "Turnouts," and who played such good ball in the old days of straight pitching. He notices great changes in Algona since those days. Harness Shop. have bought out the Lacy & Son harness shop and all its belongings, and I want my friends to know that I shall be at tho old stand all the time with a full stock of everything in the harness line. Repairing a specialty. I ask a portion of your trade, and hope to merit it by prompt attention to customers. 4t2 p. L. SLAGLE. T02IOS Pi 1 THE TIME. Baby Is Sick. The woeful expression of a Des Moines teamster's countenance showed his deep anxiety was not Without cause, when he Inquired of a druggist of the same city what was best to give a baby for a cold. It was not necessary for him to say more; his countenance showed that the pet of the family, If not the Idol of his life, was In distress. "We give our baby Chamberlain's Cough Remedy," was the druggist's answer. " I don't like to give the baby such strong medicine," said the teamster. " You know John Oleson of the Waters-Talbot Printing company, don't youf" Inquired the druggist. " His baby, when eighteen months old, got hold of a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and drank the whole of It. Of course It made the baby vomit very freely, but did not Injure It In the least, and what Is more It cured the baby's cold." The teamster knew already the value of the remedy, having used It himself, and was now satisfied that there was no danger In giving It even to a baby. For sale by F. W. Dlngley. He Wants It Known: Mr. J. H. Straub, a well-known German citizen of Fort Madison, Iowa, was terribly afflicted with Inflammatory rheumatism when Mr. J. F.
