Sheriff Graham came out from Chi®W> n Monday for election and returned """ling to the bedside of his wife, that when he left she was no e se was no better and the doctors do not give him much encouragement. The rumor that she was dead was unfounded, however. She has a very bad scalp wound, the flesh being cut entirely away from the skull over the right eye, and is otherwise^seriously hurt.

Caldwell, in talking about his campaign tour after spending a day in Algona, said he had not anywhere in his travels been in a town of anywhere near the size which was building such buildings as wo are. He also remarked that any city might be proud of such improvements, which is true. The boys who were in Chicago thought our new buildings would loolc rather cheap when they got home. But even Chicago did not dwarf them, and except in size they would look well even in the windy city. Whitney Mockridge, the celebrated American tenor, who, with his splendid concert company will be heard in our city on Nov. 17, has during his brilliant career of several years been a star member of Carl Rosa's English Opera company, American Opera company under Theo. Thomas, Clara Louise Kellog Concert company, Ovid Musin Concert company, the leading vocal soloist of the Boston Festival orchestra and he has sung in special oratorio and concert engagements in nearly every prominent city in the United States and Canada. The proposition to secure a permanent camp ground for the Fourth regiment of Iowa National guards at Algona is one worth considering. Gen. Greene will receive bids till Jan. 1, and he asks an offer of 100 acres or more. The Fourth regiment covers the counties from Cerro Gordo to the Missouri river, north, and south to Sac and Ida. Algona would be central, and would have some fine places for a range and for general camp use. If she should get the permanent camp it would mean that eacli year the companies of the Fourth would come here for their two weeks' encampment, and probably also for regimental rifle practice. It may be worth while to see if Algona cannot make a bid. The last republican rally of the campaign was held at the court house Saturday evening and was addressed by Gen. Caldwell of Topeka, Kan. The room was jammed and packed to its greatest capacity, and no finer audience ever greeted a speaker in Algona. In turn the general gave one of the best political addresses ever heard in Algona. He spoke in a plain, everyday style but held the attention of all to the end, and presented his case in a pleasing and convincing manner. This is his first visit to the county, but in fut- uUO U|JOl ** liwuovj uiw-- ------ - i , full force will be put to work on the inside. Mr. Call hopes to have the building ready to open by Dec. 15. It is reported that Ed. Watson has bought out a drug store in a town in Indiana and will take charge of the busi- > ness. His medical education should help him to make a success of the undertaking. For Gen. Caldwell's meeting 65 tickets were sold at Bancroft and 80 at Burt It is reported that over 100 came from Bancroft for the Ryan meeting. This has been an enthusiastic campaign in Kossuth. A. L. Seeley is arranging to get from the county the fine pair of elk antlers he gave away some years ago. If the board will let them go Mr. Call will hanff them in the entrance hall to the opera house. They wjuld be very ornamental. Dr. Garfield enjoyed the republican meeting Saturday, but it wasn't enthusiasm over the speech which made him move suddenly to a seat nearer the platform. Some hot tallow dripped from a Chinese lantern and struck on the top of his head. Several were troubled during the meeting the same way. S. S. Sessions, Auditor Hofius and J.

The Chicago Journal of Oct 4 said: " There has been a large sale of seats for the Whitney Mockridge company concert at Central Music hall, Thursday evening, Oct. 6, under the auspices of the board of lady managers for the world's fair commission as a benefit for the children's building fund. The reserved seat sale opened yesterday at the Central Music ."... * /m__ 3 A ..~ n Knn onata wni.*> One of the most daring robberies ever committed occured last Friday near Council Bluffs in this state. The Nonpareil of. that place gives the particulars: For several days a New York diamond merchant named Ottenheimer has been stopping in Omaha and calling upon the various jewelers of that city on business connected with his eastern house. He carried with him some valuable goods. These he kept secreted about his clothes when traveling. Yesterday afternoon he boarded an out-going train on the Fremont, Elkhorn & Missouri Valley road, his destination being some northern point. There was quite a good sized number of other passengers on the train. After crossing the Missouri river to the Iowa side he wont into the smoking car to enjoy the whiffs of a cigar. Two men followed him into the car. One was a young-looking man about twenty-five years old. There were three or four other passengers in the smoker. The younger of the two who followed Ottenheimer into the car took a seat near him. When a few miles out from California Junction he suddenly drew a slung-shot and struck Ottenheimer over the head. This was followed by other blows and before the passengers could render any aid he drew a revolver and leveling it at them commanded them to keep their seat under penalty of death. Ottenheimer resisted the robber, who then commenced firing at him, two shots taking effect, one in each arm, which rendered his victim powerless to offer resistance. Ottenheimer had upon his person some $100 in cash which he told the desperado to take. The robber told him he was not after his money, and reaching into Ottenheimer's inside pocket he hauled forth the diamonds, valued at $15,000, which he placed in his own pocket. He then quickly grabbed the bell rope and gave the engineer the signal to stop. As the train slowed up he jumped from the car and was lost in the darknes of night in a moment. While the robbery was going on no one entered the car. It required but a few minutes for the desperate thief to acomplish the act. One of the passengers in the smoking car named Bob Fleming of Missouri Valley attempted to interfere and the robber pointed his revolver at him and pulled the trigger but it failed to go off. Fleming then hid behind a seat and took his watch from his pocket and secreted it under the cushion. At the point where the robbery was committed it is a lonely place. Along the railroad are numerous marshes covered with dense growths of willows and affords a good hiding place for thieves and desperate characters. Ottenheimeris terribly beaten about the head and face. At Missouri Valley Dr. Coit was summoned and dressed his wounds. One of the bullets plowed its way beneath the skin just below the chest. He was placed on the Sioux City & Pacific train and brought to this city. From here he was taken to Oma- ha'in a hack. Two men were arrested at Missouri Valley on suspicion. They boarded the Sioux City train at California Junction and commenced to tell about the robbery before anyone on the train knew of it. They were out of breath when they reached the train and their actions aroused suspicion that they were connected with the robbery. here to Superintend the construction of the mammoth dredge and flotilla of barges, also the biff land plant of the Lake Hancock Pebble Phosphate company. The boat on which the dredge will be mounted is 90 feet in length, and the barges are each to be 50 feet long and of corresponding beam. Mr. Light will employ a large force pf mechanics, machinists and laborers and expects to have both land and water plant complete and ready for business in from 60 to 90 days. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. Mrs. J. P. Tuylor of Charles City is visiting at D. S. Ford's. W. A. Parsons, son of G. S. Parsons of Sherman, goes this week to Story county, where he will remain six months or more. Chris.

Timmons, postmaster at Idaville, Ind, writes: "Electric Bitters has done more for me than all other medicines combined for that bad feeling arising from kidney and liver trouble." John Leslie, farm- arid stockman of same place, says: Find Electric Bitters to be the best kidney and liver medicine; it made me feel like a new man." J. W. Gardner, hardware dealer, same town, says: " Electric Bitters is just the thing for a man who is all run down and don't care whether he lives or dies."

It seems that when John Wallace first went to Renwick in the spring he arranged with a hardware firm to send some milk cans to a skimming station a few miles away for sale to patrons. The drayman was taking some of Mr. Wallace's own cans in the load and in some way got the lots mixed and. the store cans got into use in the creamery without anyone's noticing it. .bast week the hardware men took advantage of the mistake to embarass Mr. Wallace and had him arrested on the charge of obtaining goods under false pretenses. W. B. Quarton went down and he was promptly dismissed. The case seems to be one of malicious prosecution, as Mr. Wallace offered to pay for the cans, but they refused to let the matter drop unless he would pay also a lot of claims held against the old firm LATEST styles stiff and soft hats for men and boys.
