t>m MQINE& AMO^A, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 5, JUSTICE, Ted Kidd Case from Speii- Monopolized the District Court This Week, Developes Some Racy Testimony All Along the Line—New Citizens- Civil Matters. The most interesting case yet tried in court is the Kidd bribery which was on Monday and yesterday. It grew out of and recalls a curious career in our neighboring town of Spencer, E. A. Kidd began life up in Canada selling 'some patent medical preparations for which there seemed to be a good demand. His wife had relatives in Spencer, and BO it happened that he cnine there and began tin extensive business, advertising all over the west. In time a number of local capitalists organized a company of which Kidd was manager. They flourished all right for awhile, but their business came to a climax when W. P. Ward called Kidd a thief and a robber, und Kidd sued him for ul under. In the row also Kidd had claims for unpaid salary, and ho also uskod the court to reinstate him as manager. The trial in one of these cases came off, and out of it Kidd was charged with forgery in changing a court record. But the present case arose out of his slander suit against Ward. Sheriff Madden was to select the jury, and tho charge was that Kidd offered him $600 if ho would pick out talesmen from a list ho had with him and he won the case. A change-of venue was taken to Algona and Lawyer Irwin of Storm Lake and W. B. Quarton appeared for Kidd, while Geo. E. Clarice assisted W. L. Joslyn in the prosecution, A. C. Parker of Spencer not being able to be present. r,, Th , e prosecution rested mainly on Sheriff Madden's direct statement that Kidd offered him a list of men to be called as jurors, and agreed to pay him IgoOO if he won. Kidd disputed Madden point blank and had two witnesses to swear to conversations in which they claimed to have heard Kidd ask Madden if he had ever offered him money to fix a jury, and he had said that no such thing had occurred. The arguments began to the jury about 4 o'clock, Mr. Clarke opening and W. B. Quarton following. This morning Messrs. Irwin and Joslyn conclude. Mr. Kidd is accompanied in court by his wife and her sister from Duluth. They appear to bo very pleasant people^ _ The whole case seems to be one arrising out of a town row, which must be very unpleasant in Spencer. brand of tne heit best grade they make.

THEM M -ffl IT On* Two Ja'il Birds Shook the Dust Monday Everting, and Escaped Without Notice; they Did It by Digging Through an i8- inch Brick Wall—Two Crooks that Are Badly Wanted, Kossuth enjoys the distinction of another jail breaking, The two prisoners held for burglarizing Frank Potter's place at Hobart vamoosed the ranch Monday evening at 6 o'clock without much trouble, They dug a hole through a solid 18-inch brick wall, how, no one seems to know, got into the coal room and so out, and walked quietly out of town in broad daylight. The hole was cut in the wall in the old dungeon off the main cell. The door to this one was open, why, no particular reason is given, and in behind they worked probably many hours and perhaps all day. Ifc is not likely that they cut through such a wall in a short time with any light tools, and if they were carefully searched and guarded it is impossible to conceive how they had tools of any kind. The first discovery of their de- E arture was about an hour after they )ft, when Sheriff Graham and Marshal Dailey went down to look after them at 7 o'clock. Algona, Iowa. e.

J., created much excitement in that vicinity. Investigation showed that the disease was not cholera, but a violent dysentery, which is almost as severe and dangerous as cholera. Mr. Walter Willard, a prominent merchant of Jamesburg, two miles from Helmetta, says Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera, and Diarhoea Remedy has given great satisfaction in the most severe cases of dysentery. It is certainly one of the best things ever made. Sold by all druggists. PROFESSIONAL DIRECTORY. -^-^^——^^-*^^-^^^, GEO. E. CLARKE, ATTORNEY AT LAW. Office over First National bank, Algona, la. These two men were experts at the business, and within a week sheriffs were here from Fayette and Clayton counties to identify thorn, and to offer rewards for them. They were wanted for various offenses, and had broken jail at Northwood. Sheriff Grafiam had every reason to know that they were dangerous men, and that it would require the closest watch to hold them. One of them escaped before at Emmetsburg by jumping through the window of the car. This makes four men who have left our jail in a few weeks. Although Dickson was known to be a smooth rascal there was an excuse for letting him in the open jail in daytime. But after his escape, and with steel cages which the county has provided at a cost of $2,000 and two lawsuits, there seems to be little reason for the loss of these men. At least it cannot be claimed that a poor jail is the reason, for no jail can be made that a man cannot dig out of if he has time and opportunity.

Yes, we are selling Minnesota flour too, and expect to continue to as long as we run a flouring mill in Algona, and sell it in connection with our own manufacture at fair prices. But we shall not join the combine of other dealers and help keep prices up to $1.40 a sack regardless of the price of wheat. Still we mean to have a hand in fixing the prices of Minnesota flour from now on; and in order to be in position to do so, we have stocked up with Minnesota flour. We have not hunted for the cheapest Minnesota flour, but meant to have the beat and • knew where to go ior it. Our flour comes from the great WASHBURN MILLS, MINNEAPOLIS. The largest mill in the world—daily capacity 10,000 barrels—requiring 50,000 bushels wheat to produce it and 100 oars daily to take out its vast out-put. By the way, did you ever wonder, when noticing the. displays of sacks and barrels of flour from the Washburn and Pillsbury mills in the other smart towns, why none of the Algona dealers handle the flour of these popular mills? It is because they can buy flour from obscure mills a trifle cheaper. THE WASHBURN FLOUR "lias a world-wide popularity and has taken gold medals often enough when placed in competition with other mills to justify the proprietors in adopting "GOLD MEDAL" as the brand for the best grade of flour they can produce. "Imperial" is the s. s. SESSIONS, ATTORNEY AT LAW. Prompt collections. Money to loan on chattel security. Over Chrlschilles'store. L. K. GARFIELD, M. D., PHYSICIAN AND SURGEON.
