Prof. Wai-man, a well known lecturer at our teachers' institutes, is teaching in Highland Park nqrmal school at Des Moines. The opening dance of tho season will be given by the club Saturday evening 1 , music being furnished by the Marshalltown orchestra. Rev. Black dfficiated last Wednesday at Ihe marriage of Arthur E. Dutton and (Grace Young, two highly esteemed young people df the county. Chairman Doxsee is seeing to it that Kossuth has its share of attention from the central committee. We are getting the best speakers on the stump. D. A. Haggard had a big sale at, Jas. Blunt's in Fsnlon yesterday. Cows averaged ove'r $25 a head, which would indicate that stock is picking up a little. G. M. Parsons is building a granary 36x10 feet, H. P. Larson a bia'n 40x60 ... feet, and Peter Young an addition to his house 16x24 feet. All got lumber at Paul's. The John Patterson mare is entered at the Mason 'City races Ihis week. King David wild be driven there also for a record. 'Thomas has both horses in charge. Col.

Algona gains a new citizen this week in Mr. Cameron of Belmond, who is moving into the S. C. Spear residence. He will engage in opening up farms and a general land business. Somebody stole Matt Holzbauer's corn from his field near the foundry. Matt says he will give the fellow a sack full if he will come in the day time, but didn't like the idea Of having it stolen. It is reported that wolves have killed lots of lambs this year in the -woods between here and Irvington. They are becoming plenty and are a great nuisance. Where are .Sam. Squires and his wolf hounds? The democratic (delegates are in town today deciding on-candidates for coun- '•» offices. The fight is over sheriff's nom- 'J 1 ination, and C. B. Pettibone, A. C, Scott, Roy McGetchie, Ike Finnell, and others are talked -of. The marriage of John Munch and Bertha Goslsch al Whillemore was a very pleasant social event, John is a rustler in business-and has won a charming bride. Everyone washes them abounding good luck. The Smale sisters give a musical entertainment at the Congregational church tomorrow evening. They play the piano and violin, and sing in a manner which has won the best press testimonials. The admission is 25 and 15 cents. Court sets next week, and in addition to a number of important criminal matters there are some half dozen divorce cases on the docket. The tale of domestic infelicity begins -and ends in nearly all with " brulal and inhuman trealment." Rev. W. H. Dor ward has been per- manenlly secured as pastor of the Baptist church, and will be here next Sunday to hold regular services. He is highly endorsed as a speaker,. aad is very much liked on first acquaintance by his congregation. The regular meeting of the W. C. T. U. is Friday, Oct. 9. All ladies who are ready for the work of the new year are cordially invited'to come and join in the work. Ladies who have not been identified with the W, C. T. U, of Algona, will be welcomed to the meetings. We hear occasionally of how Algona ~ 4 is not keeping up with neighboring towns. And yet her school census shows 800 of school age, while Sheldon has 575, Storm Lake 702, and Emmetsburg 595. Sheldon claims 2,800 people, and at the same ratio Algona has over 3,000. About as fine a specimen of corn as is ever seen stands in Dingley «fe Moffatt's office. The stalks are 13 feet high and ;he ears hang from six to eight feet high, and are big well-filled ears. It was grown by Uncle Thos. Robison, who planted it May 28, and shows whal can be done. The LuVerne News says: According to late advices Samuel Mayne of Ban- roft will discontinue his law practice and devote his entire time and attention to his ever Increasing real estate jusiness. Mr. Mayne has done a land office business this year for a fact, and Fie is still at il. C. D. Boardmnn was in town Friday to visit • the republicans and discuss the situation, Ho is representing Mr. Wheeler and the state committee. While here he said that Mr. Wheoler would visit the county next Friday. He predicts success for the whole state ticket at the polls. J. R. Davis was out from Wisconsin last week to look over his land in Fenton and to see about the new road by the fair ground. He owns a, half-block on the proposed new road, but he and the olhers have not agreed on a plan for opening it. Tho Methodists promise an interesting leclure nexl week Thursday evening. W. J. Foo Shun will lell about "'•hina, and has a fine double storeopti- eon with which he will give pictures of the great wall, dragon throne, temples, idols, and all the features of Chinese life n.nd landscape of interest. Admission 25 and 10 conls, One of Ihe remarkable freaks of this remarkable season is a cluster of ripe wild strawberries picked Oct. 1, by Prank Jenkinson. He brought Ihom lo this office, where they may be seen by the Incredulous. They should be added to pur exhibit of peanuts and sweet potatoes at the fair as an evidence of tho kind of climate we have here. A. A. Brunson'ssinglngatthcDolliver meeting proved him a vocalist of no mean ability and attracted general praise. He says he was inspired to his best not so much by the speech, as by Ihmking of the big "corn thai grew" on his farm in Lotts Creek this year and the profit he is going to make on it. He thinks that anybody who has any sing in him ought to raise his voice if lie owns a corn field in Iowa.. Geo. E. Clarke's appearance at Em- melsburg in court a week ago was in defense of an old settler well known as " Micky" Jackman, The old road up Medium lake runs through his-farm, and not long since he blocaded it claiming that it had never been properly located. He was taken in charge by the authorities, and had Mr. Clarke come over to explain his position to the court. Although the road was declared duly located, Micky was let off easy and a long-time dispute is finally settled. The detective who came to Algona for the confidence men is now in trouble himself. Monday's Pioneer Press has a long account of his arrest for blackmail. He is still looking for the men who fleeced the Missouri farmer, and had one named Snearly arrested, but the farmer could not identify him, and Snearly had the detective arrested. The detective is John T. Norris one of the best known in the United States, and he swears that he will yet unearth the swindlers. He will always regret that he didn't reach Algona a day sooner. The luck of a man who don't advertise was shown by Mr. 'Cline, who started a clothing store in the S. C. Spear building. He ran a month and no one seemed to find out where he was or that he had anything, and at the end some deal was made by which ho moved to Nebraska. Before going, however, he paid his full year's rent and oiaer expenses making his four week'a sojourn cost him $450. He shook the Algona dust from his feet iau'i week, and is looking for a place w'-iet'Q people come around and hunt men up to trade with them. In this country only wide awake men get business. The funniest tiling we have seen lately is a letter on free silver in The Chicago Tribune from the fluent pen of 'H. I. Wasson. The Tribune gives him the following flattering notice: The Tribune consented that Mr. Wasson might state in a short communication the reason of Ihe silverltes for wishing free coinage. He has taken advantage of this to dump a whole bucketful of slops into the Tribune columns, dragging in a multiplicity til mailers which are unrelated to the subject, and re- has'hing old choslnut stories and rumors long since forgotten. We let the imposition pass, this time, but will take care thai it 'is not repeated by him. The Hampton Recorder says of the musical company which ^appears tomor vow evening: The Smale sisters were greeted by a large and appreciative audience at the Congregational church Saturday night. The programme consisted of instrumental trios, recitations, vocal solos, trios, violin duets, etc., and each selection was a gem. The young ladies are a talented trio and their concerts are such as commend them and win ther.'approval of all who enjoy a classical entertainmenl, This was their third visit to our city and all who have heard Ihem hope lhal anolher appearance at no distant day is in store for our citizens. Many friends of Miss Lenetle Wilson will regret to learn that she is suffering from a paralytic stroke brought oa b, a concussion resulting from a fall With a number of young ladies she was engaged in outdoor sport in the yard at home, when she fell striking the side of her head, 'The whole side was paralyzed and at first it was thought serious consequences would ensue. But she was taken to Clear Lake, where under Mrs. Dr. Colby's care she seems to be rapidly improving. She has nearly recovered the full use of her side and without any backset will soon be able to be out. The accident was very unfortunate, and is much deplored by lier many acquaintances. Housekeeper.

The Early Settlement of the Califor- nias — Made by Spaniards—A Shiftless Crowd. IT'S A MATTER OF HISTORY ft Was During & Period of Superstition and Witchcraft—The War They Made on the Infidel. Los ANGELES, Cal., Sept. 28.—As the time.for tho opening of the Colum- iian exposition draws near tho historical events to be thereby commemorated become of increasing Interest, and tho study of the life and times of Christopher Columbus and his contemporaries will be taken up by every studenl with that zeal which characterizes a theme of present personal importance. Already there are men in tho Hold collecting historical material of all kinds for the World's Fair, and every noled spol of Spain and Mexico is being searched for letters, reports, relics, :urlos, arms, armor, souls and every variety of historical incident or objocl whether stored away among private families or in public archives. With this revival of interest in the events and persons connected with tho early history of tho Americas is a do- sire for a more complete selling forth of the causes that led to their discovery ind tho customs and manners which, following the Spanish arms, became .aws in America. To the student of history the first stops in tho settlo- of a new country, tho causes that led to its occupation and to Iho eslablishtnenl of ils government are points of primary importance', for without a knowledge of these, many of its customs, laws and Institutions are 'unintelligible. While every school boy is familiar with the story of the May Flower, tho founding of the original:13 colonies, Ihe resolution and adoption of the constitution, yet there are few Americans who are aqually familiar with tho conquest, set- lement and Spanish laws of our Pacific possessions. A full and accurate history of the Indian wars, the march of Spanish arms, the enslaving of liip natives, the founding of pueblos, presidios and missions is yet lo bo written, although with Ihose were established manners and laws in force down to this present day. While much has been written on these subjects, yet Iho stutemcnls are oflen meager and more often unreliable, for Ihe written records of the mission fathers or military commanders give such facts only as it was to their interest to give, while entirely omitting' or perverting others. The time of the settlement of the Cailiifornias was an ago of suporsUlloa and mysteries, and the witchcraft of our forefathers during the same period on Iho Atlantic coasl was but Ihe more civilized form of the well nigh universal belief in demons, necromancy and miracles. That was not only on age of miracles but the spirit of chivalry was still alive among the Spaniards and tje new world opened lo the soldier a field for conquest and glory, and to the priest new dominions of salan to bo brought wilhin the folds of the church. The accounts of the early expeditions of tho Spanish into thoCalifornias reads like Ihe history of the crusades. The objecl lhal was ever uppormosl and always spoken of as Ihe reason for Ibose expeditions was the conversion of the natives and tho establishment of the true religion,.the acquisition of len-i- tory being- a secondary consideration, so Ihey said. These cavaliers were engaged in a holy war againsl tho infidel, and while their own accounts are set forth in glowing descriptions of their own valor, yet when we see what they actually did and consider the people with whom they contended and the great disparity between the weapons of warfare of Ihe conquerors and Iho conquered, Iheir exploits loose all Ihe glory of honorable conquest and become a Don Quixotic lale of braggadocio. Keeping ever in mind the desired end, lowit, the conversion of Ihe soul, any means was honorable just so that object was obtained, for Ihe end justified the means, and while Iho padre stood wilh flaming role and book in hand the soldier was there also wilh the sword, and between them they produced such argument that the natives were converl- ed en masse with neatness and dispatch, A few words by way of contrast between the colonists of the Atlantic coasl and Ihe Spaniards of the Pacific will help to p_oint out the different objects in view and explain somewhat the different character of the instilullons established. There Iho people soughl civil and religious liber- ly from Ihe galling oppression al home, here Ihe established church and arms of Spain sought lo extend Iheir power in Ihe new world and at the same lime gather in the great wealth the country was reported to contain. There on. 1 forefathers contended with an inhospitable climate and more hostile savages, they went into the forests and built homes, founded cities and laid the foundation of the bounteous prosperity of today; here came tho church with floating banners and soldiers with the panoplj' of war and Ihe blare of trump- els inro a most congenial climate, among Indian tribes that were weak, effeminate and unwarlike accustomed to living on the spontaneous products of a semi-tropic country and unaccustomed to war. The Spaniards built no cities, founded no colleges, established no mechanical industries. The colonists were frugal and thrifty, being artisans and mechanics of an inventive turn of mind, lovers of liberty and founders of schools. While the Spaniards were lazy, licentious and shiftless, they were adventurous, seeking gold and glory among a people helpless and Inoffensive. While our forefathers were subduing the soil and waste places of nature these foreigners were also conquering, but the record of their conquest is one unbroken series of treachery, of cruelty, of apprehension, and trafficking in human blood. The account given by Prescott in the conquest of Mexico of the treatment of Montezuma the king is but one example among thousands of the acts of treachery and death inflicted by the conquerors upon multitudes of less offensive and less helpless natives whose names have not been preserved to his- tory but have gone down to oblivion un- honored and unsung. The power of the church and state went hand in hand everywhere, the priest having authority to establish missions wherever suitable locations of land nnd water were to bo hnd for agriculture or for stock-raising, and near by would be established the presidio for tho soldier, so thai his presence would always be felt among tho converts at the mission as well as among the wild Indians in the mountains, for converts were not controlled by tho sweet peaceful influences of Christianity as wo know it, but the lash and dungeon and starvation were tho effective weapons of their spiritual warfare. It is evident tho country was well oxplo.-ed before a site for n mission was selected, as tho experience of more than a hundred years proves that tho locations worn well chosen, both as lo ferlllily of soil and convenience to unfailing supplies of water. Much has been written both .for and against tho rule of the mission fathers, some claiming that they wo 'o kind and lenient wilh tho natives, others thai Ihey wore cruel and harsh, Inflicting severe penalties and committing many barbarous crimes. Tho former opinion is in conformity with written accounts loft by tho piulras themselves and the hitter is tho tradition handed down by Iho natives and told by their descendants Ihemselves lo Ibis day. Judging by tho present disposition of the Indians it would seem that Home- thing more than .smooth argument and miracles would bo necessary to porauade a wild and untutored native who had spent a lifetime In Ibis climate lo fall In love wilh hard work, and il Is easy lo believe that nothing short of enforced servitude would havo produced tho vast amount of labor performed by the Indians under tlw mission rule. A silo for a mission having been selected and tho presidio being established the next thing was lo procure laborers, men wore needed lo build houses, plant orchards, construct lrr.lga.tlon ditches, tend tho sheep and ca.W.lo, women wore needed lo wall on Ihe padras, cook, raise garden sluff. learn to sow, weave, uake baskets, and in short do all horoc- lold duties as well as worl: Jn tho field duL-ing tho tho busy season, bu;. whO:'o were these laborers to bo had, ..ho padi-e was a priest, tho sold'.r • agon. Ionian, and as lo women Ihoy had none. II is uncertain at Ibis lalo day just :iow tho first laborers were obtained, jut as to those at tho San Gabriel mission there are two accounts, just as there are always two sides lo such transactions. Ono is tho written account efl by tho padras themselves, and tho one generally believed because the other is generally unknown, the olher iccount is oral, being the tradition handed down and now repeated by tho children and grandchildren. The written account stripped of its surplus- vg'o is in this wise: Tho padre having mel Ihe Indians in Ihoir village Breached a sermon wilh great demonstration of spirit and of power on tho superiority of the ways of the white man, and tho need of Ihe Indians being converted, then with the chanting of a iiymn, the burning of incense, tho swinging of a censer, and other religious demonstrations, he unfurled to i.he eyes of the astonished natives a banner on ono side of which was a picluro of the blessed virgin, and on Iho other bide an Indian in hell, whereupon tho whole multitude were miraculously converted, and upon being baptised wore taken to the mission and became a part of the spiritual charge of Iho church. The oral account as I havo hoard it lold by ono of Ihe descendants stripped of its most offensive features is as follows: The soldiers having surrounded the Indian village by night captured all the children and took them to the mission and baptised them and then refused to let their mothers see them unless Ihey too would bo baptised and con- senl lo live al the mission, which mosl of them did afler listening lo Iho cries and pleading's of tho children from day to day, Ihen Iho husbands and fathers were forbidden to see their families unless they would be baptised and join the church as tho converts must not mingle with tho unconverted heathen, so in due time tho whole village was at Iho mission. A slory is lold of one padre, who was an expert with the lasso, and whenever ho would see a wild Indian lhal refused lo be converled and come to the mission, ho would saddle his pony and with lasso in hand run down the Indian, drag him to a post, whip him into submission, put fetters on his foci, baptise him, -put hisnameontho church record, and set him to work, all within an hour. The written account above referred to says thai as Ihe greal miracle of converting so many at one time was performed by Iho angel Gabriel tho mission was therefore named in his honoi San Gabriel Archangel.

Dolomites wore irosent from every township and tho •ourl room was crowded with members mil spectators, in all an Intelligent and mimiited crowd. Although there was every evidence of an alert interest In ho proceedings, everything ptiRscd olT icaueably, the hottest canvass ended In i quiet acceptance of results, and bur- ing a proposed contest over tho Oor- nan township delegates, win) were ;harged with not currying out tholr in- tructiotiH, not '«jvcn a ripple marred the lalm exterior of tl\o convenllon. After t was all over everybody took a cigar )r apple out of the boxes and barrels ln.rsh Stephens had provided, and voii't away satisllod of one thing at citsl, and that wastliat IhonotnltmtioitH lad been made booauso tho delegates mil come to make them, anil no other esult was possible in tho convention. Tho convention organised with Goo. •}. Boyle chairman, 8. (i. Plait secro- ,ary, and 1C. U. Butlorasslstant. Tliere vas no dispute over tho credentials, and on motion tiho llrst ballot wa« taken on horllT. It showed Stephens 40, Hunt 23, Barslou 9, and Duiloy 7. Tho for- nal ballot gave Stephens 41, which was a majority and nominated him. How 'airly ho was nominated wiw shown by its vote, for It did not como from the other candidates who won, which showed tboro was no trade, neither rom what havo boon called the " ring" .owns, for Wesley, Whltlomoro, Lotts Creek and Bancroft wore all for other candidates. Tho Stephens delegates voro scattered all over and were all for Stephens. Ho vviis nominated because i majority of tho delegates wore for iltn on M, square and fair test. The treasurer was taken next and W. A. Chipmaii was nominated by a argo vote. Superintendent came next md a close contest between B. P. Reed ind E. C. Anderson resulted in Heed's lominatlon on tho first formal ballot. This nomination also was made on a square test of strength, and Mr. Hoed won Tjceauso tho delegates believed ho was tho man for tho place. After scul- .orhig balloting 1 H. C. Hollenbeok of Wesley and 3. G. Rawson of Lolls Creole wore named for supervisors, Dr. Shoote for coroner, and A. E. Teller for county surveyor. The ticket as a whole is one of the jesl which has ever boon pul up in ,ho county. It Is made up of good men. represents all elements in tho party and is fairly distributed over tho county. The two loadingoandidatoB havo olllcial 'ecords to go on, and tho others arc well known. Whatever may be said of Sir. Stephens by those who do not like him, no ono will quesllon his activity or efficiency in the sheriff's office. Dur- 'ng six years no indictment or information has boon filed against an offender without that offender making his appearance. If prompt and certain capture tends to make crime odious, his administration has boon in tho interests of good order and law. As chief of police at tho stale fair ho won a slalo [•ecognition for handling Iho largest itlondanoo with tho least number of men and the least exponso of any like olllcial in tho history of tho society. He has made numerous enemies no doubt both personal and political, but no one will say that ho has not tho qualifications and experience to ably serve Kossuth county, and when election day comes tho voter who asks what wo are ; aylng a sheriff for will hesitate before e votes against a fairly nominated candidate on personal grounds. What is said of Sheriff Stephens us an official is equally true of B. P. Reed. The state records show that during his former term his institutes wore atlond- od by more teachers in proportion to the total number and also In proportion to tho population, than in any olher county in tho stale. This is one Indl- calion of his abilily lo arouse onlhusl- asrn and keep up interest. His experience and his demonstrated ability will also commend him to the voter who asks what are wo paying a superintendent for, and secure him a hearty support. How strong his support is was shown in tho convention, for he was nominated without any solicitation of his own. Ho took the position from the outset thai having been once honored he could not fairly urgo himself again as a candidate, and the delegates choso him of their own accord, Tho remainder of the ticket is made up of good men. Mr. Chipman is a resident of Portland and a well-to-do farmer, Messrs. Hollonbeck and Rawson need no introduction to the public, neither does Dr, Sheetz. Mr. Tellloris a son of B. Tellior, and has made a thorough study of surveying. In view of Mr. Hutchins 1 unwillingness to keep tho surveyor's office it was fortunate that he was available for this important place. Together they make a strong combination and one which is fully up to the highwater mark of county tickets. They will havo many friends anc a rousing support in November.
