Another " Blue Sky" Caso ArlHlng 3?rom the "Aleroim Supj>ly Company"—Homo Animadversions on the "Blue Sky" Business. Nearly two weeks ago an attorney 'from Rook Rapids came over to Algona to investigate some of the doings of a combination known as the "Algona Supply Company." As a result Deputy Mclnroe took G. L. Button over yesterday on the charge of obtaining money under false pretences, swindling, or something of that sort. This is Sutton's second arrest as he was taken to Wobster City a few weeks ago, but got Off, The arrest arises out of this fence selling and farm supply selling for which Algona has been headquarters for some time, and which is a clear- out and well planned "skin game,'" oven if the contracts and papers are so cleverly drawn that the men cannot be h.eld for swindling. Button may be released again and probably will be, as it is difficult to show that he is legally liable. We have made but little comment on this business which has been running now over a y«ar, because we have no sympathy with the men. who buy these worthless township rights. So fur as they are concerned it makes little dif- erence how many notes they give for "blue sky." Iffcheyare fools enough to pay $100 or $125 for absolutely nothing, and what they know is worthless, 'If they know anything, there is no good reason why they and their money should not bo parted in accordance with the adage. But Algona's good name Is likely to got mixed up in this business, and no good can come to the town from a reputation of baing headquarters for all around sharping. Isn't it about time that an investigation was had into the methods of selling township rights to nothing, and the "blue sky" companies invited to move to other fields? LOCAL MISCELLANY. for Delinquent Taxes. The annual tax sale Monday was something on the bull and bear order on the Chicago board of trade. While it lasted it was red hot, and the bidders got so thoroughly warmed up that they persuaded- Mr. Luntry to forego dinner until the list was finished. They bid iu taxes for anywhere from one-twentieth to one-thousandth of the tract of land they were delinquent on. Jones & Smith made the biggest bid, getting One tax on 1-9500 of the land. They got two other pieces on 1-3500 and 1-3600. A. D. Clarke paid the taxes on several pieces for small fractious; as did also B. W. Haggard, Gardner CowleSyand Others. It was the best bid up tax\ale ever held in the county by all odds. A Curious Pleading. A curious and amusing pleading ie on file in a breach of promise case in court. The defendant avers that "he called on the plaintiff a number of times and spent the time pleasantly in her company," and that ho often talked with her about marrying. But she never knew whether she wanted to marry or not. Finally when she found that he was moving to Minnesota she said she wouldn't marry him and he told her that she was not the kind of a girl he was looking after. The answer then concludes, " the talk and negotiations with reference to marrying were dropped, suspended, eliminated, annulled, abandoned, and knocked out." In spite of this verbal array the lady is maintaining suit. Wanted to Walk: with Her. Last Saturday night as Miss Morford, who clerks in Jas. Taylor's store, was walking home by Call's park a young man stepped out and wanted , to walk with her. She said she did not know him, but he said that made no differ- once and took hold of her arm. She got away and ran into a neighboring house. Monday she filed information against a young fellow named Scott, who is generally credited with running the gambling rooms of which mention has been made before, and an examination was held. On account of the dusk she had not been able to see him distinctly and though she felt sure of his voice she could not identify him sufficiently to warrant binding him over. This occurrence ought again to call public attention to some of the lawlessness that goes on undisturbed in Algo- gona if reports are correct. The Iowa Homestead. The publishers of the Homestead, the weekly twenty-four page agricultural paper of Des Moines, Iowa, edited by a practical farmer, inform us that they will send their paper from now until the first of "January, free of charge, to every farmer in this county not already a subscriber, who will send his name and address, plainly written 011 o postal card, to the Homestead Uo.', Des Moines, Iowa. The copies will be absolutely free, and will be sent to any farmer to enable him to judge for himself of the merits of the Homestead as a paper devoted to his special interests. On the first of January the paper will be discontinued unless subscribed for in due form. HiiWg rsOM A Jfetfr Creamery lit Btiffnlo-Farm Selling at $30 an Acre— A Gl-ea ; Col-n Kecord-Othcf Item*.

Zuiios Tryon sold his farm 14 miles east of Wesley last week for $30 an acre. Chandler Ward is building a new house. Mr. Ward has lived in his old house for about 24 years. It is built of logs and is the only log house we know of now standing in Wesley township. Surely when Chandler gets into his new house we will have to go out ane give him a house-warming. S. O'Neill informs us that he has sole a half interest in his lumber business here to Mr. Budlong of Bancroft. Mr. Budlong 1 is here now. They are going to put up coal sheds and handle coal it connection with the lumber. Miss Millie Shaw began her school last Monday in the Lamoreux district, Buffalo township. A. J. Wetherbee of Charles City spent Sunday with his sister, Mrs. Z. Tryon, returning home Monday. A Sunday school was organized last Sunday at the Kernan school house, two miles north of Wesley. This is a move in the right direction, and we wish the people in that vicinity success in their efforts. The new engine for the creamery has arrived. Mr. Oleson has been having more or less trouble with his engine here during the past year.

McCutchen had the misfortune to run a needle into her hand one day last week and break it off, All efforts to find the broken piece so far have failed. B. Stott of Buffalo township husked and cribbed 1,000 bushels of sound corn last week from 16 acres. This corn was planted the 4th and 5th of June. He also husked 320 bushels from four acres planted the 2f)th day of May. This is the best record of corn raising we have heard of iu this part of the county. Who can beat it? A Little Girl's Experience in a Lighthouse. Mr. and. Mrs. Loren Trescott are keepers of the government lighthouse at Sand Beach Mich., and are blessed with a daughter four years old. Last April she was taken down with measles, followed by a fearful cough and turning into a fever. Doctors at home and at Detroit treated her, but in vain; she grew worse rapidly until she was a mere "handful of bones." .Then she tried Dr. King's New Discovery, and after the use of two and a half bottles was completely cured. They say Dr. King's New Discovery is worth its weight in gold, yet you can get a trial bottle free at L.-A. Sheetz.' 6 Strength and Health. If you are not strong and healthy try Electric Bitters.

The Daily Reveille of Whatcom, Wash., says: " T. C, Burnett, the democratic candidate for sheriff, was taken violently ill at Clearbrook. He had all the symptoms of Asiatic cholera, and for an hour or two it was feared he would die. They finally gave him a dose of Chamberlain's Colio, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy, which revived him until a physician arrived." That is precisely what the manufacturers of that medicine recommend for cholera. Send for a physician, but give their medicine until the physician arrives. If cholera becomes prevalent in this country next summer this preparation will be in great demand, because it can always be depended upon.

A liiiVerne Citizen la Roughly Handled by a Brake-man—A Daraag* Su f i' Kosulta. ^\ A good sized law suit is on for tl^i Minneapolis & St. Louis railroad, in which D. Ramm of LuVerne is plaintiff. The cause of his action is the rough treatment a bnvkeman gave him last week. The Nuws tells the story: Mr. Ramm wasone of a number of LuVerneltos who had been attending court at Humboldt and the large crowd In the ticket office in the evening caused delay after the train was in, and the conductor had called "all aboard" for the second time when Mr. Ramm who was among the last, fearing he would be left, rushed out and climbed upon the second car ahead of the ca- booso with the intention of walking back and entering the caboose. But his head no sooner appeared above the roof than a " brakie" flashed his glim in his face and ordered him off, at the same time accusing him of having descended from the canine ancesty. Mr. Ramm stuck to the /ladder, however, and explained ,th»t 1» only *istoed to make his *ay tad? to the eaboosfe. but the obdurate knight of the lantern would hear to nothing of the kind, bu began to kick the butcher on the fingers and in the face, and as the wulrtmd man was above him and bad all the ad vantage, tbe man on tbe ladder forced to loose his hold on the iron and tumbled to tbe ground while the train was in motion. The train stopped a the stock yards and Mr. Ramm board ed the caboose, minus his hat, which had been kicked off by the brakeman and lost in tbe darkness. He at once placed the matter in the hands of J. C Raymond and tbe case will doubtless be on for trial at tbe nest term of court.
