State Bank of Bancroft weeks ago, but the disease has developed only recently. One operation has been performed, cutting away part of her face, and another is necessary to remove a portion of the jaw. The physician has little hope for her recovery. The disease is exceedingly rare. It originates from a fungus grown on grain, and in the case of cattle it is communicative by this fungus lodging in the mouth of the animal. The few cases known among human beings have been confined to liverymen, drovers, tanners and others in constant communication with live stock. The only case known of communication is that of a livery keeper in Limberg, Australia, who gave it to his bride in kissing her. This case is reported by Dr. Baracn of that city. How it originated with this child is mysterious. Mrs. Lucy Whalen, a niece of the Morman prophet, Joseph Smith, died last week at her home in Burlington. She was 52 years of age and succumbed to an attack of typhoid malaria fever. She was a believer in the Morman doctrine and in the divine inspiration of her Uncle Joe. Her remains were removed for burial at Burnside, 111., by two of her brothers, Frederick Salisbury of that city and Solomon Salisbury, a minister in the Morman church, both of whom were in attendance at her bedside, and are the last surviving members of her family. but no one in the hall knowing but what it was his home burning, the . stampede from the hall was almost complete. But the captain remained at his post and in a short time after the alarm was over and the danger past, the well* known eloquent tongue and soutid ai« gument used by the gallent congressman began to draw the citizens back to the hall, until the house was filled to overflowing and it ended in a rousing meeting and three cheers for Captain Hull. Two drunken roughs named Mullen and Barrett appeared at Mrs. Shaffer's house in the suburbs of Dubuque late Monday night, and after Mullen had cut Mrs. Shafer, her younger daughter and a man named Snider through the ears with a knife the pair nssaulted-- Mrs. Shafcr's older daughter.

A year and a half ago the vestrymen and Rector Walker got into a dispute over the question of whether the boys or the girls of the vested choir should enter the church first. The rector asserted that his authority in all matters pertaining to the church was supremo, and on appeal Bishop Perry sustained him. The wealthy men then tried to freeze him out by withdrawing their support from the church, but he accepted whatever part I of his salary those loyal to him could raise. _______ The fifty-first annual meeting of Iowa Baptist state convention and accompanying anniversaries is in seession in Mason City.

An Account from One Who Was on the Grounds-Iowa Mndo a Vino Sliowlnu - Algoim 1'ooplo AVlio are CHICAGO, Oct. 23.—The opening exercises of the world's fair closed Saturday in the dedication of the various state buildings. lowu with appropriate programme gave a handsome home on the lake front, and divided the honors of the day with New York and Ohio. Hon. E. P. Seeds delivered the oration, and Mrs. Barber recited a poem written for the occasion by S. H. M. Byers of Oskaloosa, while Gov. Boies and others had oiiioial parts. The state band furnished the music and sustained the reputation it won Thursday and Friday of being the best state band on the grounds. Of course Sousa's great band and the famous Mexican band excelled. Iowa has been prominent all through the opening programme, and the recognition she has received has caused the thousands of lowans here to feel renewed pride In the state. Gov. Boies' presidential boom has made him one of the best known of the governors and his reception was second only to that of Gov. McKinley. The Iowa party in both days' parados was received with continuous applause. "Hurrah for Iowa," " what's the matter with Boies," "three cheers for Iowa's handsome ladies," and cheers for various members of the party, especially Al. Swalm, who was passed oil' as an Indian chief by Secretary McFarland tind Speaker Mitchell, who rode ahead in the procession and told the boys about him, greeted the party all along the route. And the Iowa party deserved it all, for Feathers, F3.T1CV TrinHllillQfSl Conductor George Starr of Waterloo J ' & I had a terrible encounter with a negro Velvet, ^* I had a terrible encounter Ribbons, Baby Caps, in fact anything that can be found in a first-class millinery store. negro tramp whom he attempted to eject from an Illinois Central train.

In the struggle both men fell from the train, which was running twenty-five miles an hour. The negro has been arrested. Captain Hull spoke in Winterset Monday evening and preparations had been made for a uniformed parade and a big republican time. But about 6 o'clock the clouds came up and the rain fell in a deluge, continuing with short lulls until after Captain Hull had commenced to talk. The rain then ceased to fall for an hpur, But within 15 minutes after the speaking commenced the cry of fire was heard and with the steam whistle and the bells, great was the excitement. It was a barn burning, And the Iowa party cieserveu u an, iur it had the best mounted guard, the best band, the handsomest ladies, and the cleanest looking regiments of infantry. The parade as a whole was the most remarkable spectacle ever witnessed in the west certainly, and it is claimed is the largest and most notable ever held in this country or in the world. Thursday when the civic societies marched through the heart of the city the crowds were such that passage anywhere was absolutely impossible. Friday the military parade passing from the north side to the fair grounds, a distance of over ten miles, went the whole distance between solid ranks of spectators. It is as impossible to give any idea in words of the immensity of the throngs as it is of the main building, when the 5,700 voices in the chorus could only faintly bo heard, and where 100,000 people were seated, and where a hundredth part of them caught an occasional tone from the voices of the orators of the day. Every building in Algona could be put in this main hall without crowding. It is the marvel of architecture and no imagination can equal the impression which is produced by the actual presence, The finest spectacle of the exercises was the military parade in Washington park Friday. There were 15,000 troups, cavalry, infantry, artillery, bicycle corps, official staffs, regimental bands, governors, generals, and all marching in grand review. Old soldiers say that not even McClellan's reviews surpassed it except in numbers. The sweeping columns of soldiers in bright uniforms in the broad level park, keeping time to the dozens of great regimental bands and following the governors with their suites in full dress uniform mounted on prancing horses, presented a grand appearance. It was worth while being " war correspondent" to have a place in a front carriage where the whole field was in full view, and whore this magnificent pageant could be seen in its entirety. Algona has been very fully represented in the militia and out. She is also represented in the rifle team, as Walsh epresene , got on in the Dubuque contest although his skirmish record was low. He stood second in the known distance firing but stands ninth in the team. Witham is an alternate. The boys came to Fort Sheridan Sunday afternoon and shooting began Tuesday. It is unlikely that Iowa will cut much figure, though the team may have good luck and come up. HARVEY INGHAM. Will Start A^nlq. Des Moines Capital: Gen.
