If an " Innocent purchas er" holds it nothing but forgery in th signature or change in the body of th note will let you out of paying it. Ai "innocent purchaser" is any man wh buys the note in the regular course o business, before it is due, for avaluabl consideration, without notice that i •was wrongfully obtained. He is ho obliged to inquire what the note was given for or to find out anything abou it. The note is good in his hands un less he has been notified before he buy it that it is fraudulent, or unless ther has been such public talk or newspape discussion of the class of notes that belongs to as to put him on inquiry The buyer of a note takes it just as h would a greenback or a bank check It is money in his hands if the si gnu ture is good. The note is simply a rep resentative of money. Instead of pay ing actual money at the time of th transaction, you by aid of a note pay money for future delivery. Notes in crease the volume of money that i available for business, and so aid al classes. These notes are called " negotiable. A negotiable note is a simple promise to pay money to some one " or order. A note that has other material condi tions in the body of it, or is made pay ably to only one person is not negoti able. Against a non-negotiable not the maker can set up any defense he may have. If there was fraud in secur ing the note or if there has been a fail jire to perform the contract then thi note cannot be collected. That is thi difference between a negotiable and a non-negotiabie note. Against the first t if held in good faith by third parties , there is no defense except forgery . Against the other any defense may be set up. If you are making a deal in whicl .you would pay the cash if you had it i ' is not only safe but convenient to give a negotiable note. If you are dealing with strangers, making a bargain where the other party is to perform something in the future, figuring tha by giving a note you are going to havi time to see how the deal turns out be fore you are to pay anything, or for anj reason would not pay the cosh if you had it in your pocket, it is not only safi and convenient, but absolutely the onl; safe way not to give a negotiable note If you don't want to give a negotiabli note just mark out the words "o : order" or " or bearer" which always follow the blank line on which the man's name is written to whom the note is given. Make the note payable to him and to him -alone. That saves you all your rights. Or if the note is given in view of a contract given you by the other party, just write on the note ahead of your signature "the payment of this note is made conditiona upon the performance of a certain contract for which it is given." Always remember that no matter what written , or oral contract you may have that will have nothing to do with the payment of a not6 unless it appears on the face of the note. A good way to test a swindling scheme is by offering a non-negotiable note, It will never be accepted. You will never get an agent for any fake whatever to take a note payable only to himself, or referring on its face to the contract he makes. It is not always sign that a scheme is a swindle when negotiable paper is demanded, but in dealing with strangers you will win nine times where you lose once by re fusing to give it. For that matter you will win nine times where you lose once by refusing to deal with strangers or traveling agents at all, A great deal of complaint has been made against the use of negotiable paper. There would be none if every man would remember that when he gives it he is giving money. The man who buys a swindling right and pays his $125 in cash knows he is out his money and says nothing. The man who gives his negotiable note persuades himself he is not out his money and then swears at the court when he is compelled to pay. If you don't want to be out of pocket neither pay money nor negotiable notes. Give a non-negotiable note and if you are swindled it can never be collected. Lastly, and this is most important of all, subscribe for good newspapers, the more the better, and keep your wits about you. Read up on the various swindles and how they are worked, and then when the next agent strikes you ask him what there is green looking in your optics. If you finally decide to go into any important business transaction always consult a lawyer about your k-ights. It posts something, but no way ALQOKA, IOWA, hfts yet been devised to get education for nothing^ and it IB cheaper to get advice from a lawyer for $10 than to get experience from ft "blue sky" man for 9125. Finally remember that the world nover lets a man oft easy who goes around with his eyes shut. In bible times it was said that from him that hath not should be taken what Was left, and the man who buried his talents was vigorously sat upon. The world made Jay Gould a rich man because when be was 14 years old he had grit enough to get up at 3 o'clock in the morning to study surveying. It made Lincoln a great president because he was willing to walk 20 miles when a boy for a book and study It by pine knots, after others had gone to bed. The dozy heads it has never shoved to the front, and no legislative legerdemain will ever change the eternal order. The man who in this day don't read the papers and don't know that he will have to pay the ordinary promissory note just as surely as the sun rises Is too slow gaited to keep up with the procession. THE Register's Washington correspondent has interviewed several Iowa congressman on the advisability of nominating a candidate for United States senator next fall. Mr. Dolliver says: " I would be disposed to favor that proposition, although there is nothing in the experience of the state of Iowa to suggest a criticism at the way in which senators have heretofore heen selected. The policy of selecting a candidate for the senate by party conventions has the sanction of at least one famous precedent, the Lincoln-Douglass contest of 1858. It would seem to give the publicall the practical benefit that can come from the selection of senators by a vote of the people, without requiring any change whatever in the constitution of the United States." And Captain Hull says: " I am very much in favor of the selection of a candidate by our state convention. I believe that in this we can select some man who can successfully compete with Gov. Boies, whom the democrats are certain to put forth as their senatorial candidate before the people. I believe that this method qf selecting senators is equivalent to their election by direct vote of the people, and it will put aside the necessity of any constitutional amendment." Geo. D. Perkins and J. P. Flick do not favor the proposal. The former speaks of "a convention hurriedly got together," and Mr. Flick is likewise afraid of "a convention hurriedly called together in the spring at a time when the farmers are busy and unable to take any amount of interest in public affairs." This is substantially all they offer, and we confess that to us it seems very trivial coming from congressmen. The convention they refer to as being too informal to comport with importance of a choice of senator is the convention which is to nominate a governor of Iowa and other state officials, and which is also to determine the future policy of the party as to prohibition. A meeting of republicans which is of sufficient dignity to attend to these important duties will not, we surmise, be considered by the people too " hurriedly called" to properly weigh the merits of the aspirants for Senator Wilson's shoes. Neither are these duties of such inferior import that the farmers will not find time to consider them. The only objection to nominating a candidate that we have seen that is worth considering is that more leaders will work to elect republican legislators if the chance for the senatorship is left open than will if one is chosen by the convention. We doubt if there is anything in the suggestion, for all the candidates have other interests at stake in the result. But admitting that the defeated would give a lukewarm support to the campaign, we still have the example of all national parties in favor of nominating. Dozens of republican leaders undoubtedly gave President Harrison very weak endorsement in the late campaign. Why did not the party obviate this by not nominating a candidate, and by saying to the country " we will leave it to the electoral college to choose our man?" Everybody knows ihat the effect of such a declaration would have been to absolutely destroy popular confidence in the campaign. But everybody does not seem to see that exactly the same effect will be produced in Iowa by the same policy. Those who are quibbling over the probable action of a few candidates and ts effect entirely overlook the probable effect of a popular canvass by the opposition on an issue that the people will gladly endorse the moment it is •aised. The popular choice of senators s right and is bound to come. Ropub- icans should endorse it on this ac- 30unt. They should also endorse it as a more matter of good politics in next all's contest. No one can overestimate he good effect of a broad discussion of national issues by opposing senatorial candidates in a campaign, where there l be a strong tendency to local quabbles over state issues, lished in the Congressional Record. He was a delegate to the democratic national convention at Chicago and made the chief speech in favor of the free trade plank adopted there. He was re-elected to congress last month, and speaking of his canvass he says: "I talked straight free trade to my people. You can't work nb a scare on that subject in Cleveland, we carried that city, which used to be the strongest republican town in Ohio, by 4,000 majority for our presidential ticket this year. If any sort of a general fight had been made in Ohio this fall we might have carried the state by 30,000 Just as well as not. The only districts in which there was really a hot campaign were Barter's and mine, and in both we overcame the rankest kind of gerrymanders. We made our fight in both cases on straight free trade lines." Then he was invited to speak at the celebrated reform club banquet at New York, and now everybody knows Tom Johnson. His remarks were not on the ordinary after-dinner pattern of oratory. He sledge-hammered Speaker Crisp till that gentleman left the table, and then told the assembled guests about the situation as he sees it: «' We need not fear the free trader or the single taxer. The man whom the democratic party has to fear in its councils is the sugar coated protectionist. The quicker he goes elsewhere the better. We need his room. It is not the people, but the leaders, who need education on the tariff question. The real danger is not from without, but from within; not from open enemies, but from half hearted friends; not that we may go too fast or too far in abolishing protection, but that we may not go fast or far enough. There has been enough of the parrot cry, tariff reform but no free trade; enough of the attempt to conciliate protectionists in the belief that free traders would vote the ticket anyhow. It is'now time to think of conciliating free traders. If we were right in declaring protection a fraud, incidental protection Ts incidental fraud. Depend on it, the masses are beginning to realize that while tariffs for protection are a means for enriching the few at the expense of many, tariffs for revenue are a means for making the poor pay the taxes of the rich. Even an income tax, unjust though it is, is better than taxes on consumption. Any tax on what men have is better than a tax on what men need." , Tom Johnson don't propose that the democrats shall get off with any milk and water tariff reform. He is for free trade. He will have a strong following in congress. His congress may meet in extra session next March. In any event it will meet next December. The Nevada Representative objects to a republican nomination of a United States senator because it will be inconvenient to get at it in the state convention. That may be, but it won't be half so inconvenient as it will be to go before the people without oue. The rumor that Gladstone will deliver the oration at the world's fair opening next spring again calls attention to the wonderful vitality of the "grand old man." A friend of his was lately asked about his health and said: "Never better, early to church every morning, rain or shine, a day's work afterwards that would tire out three or four ordinary men, and then a long evening over books and papers. Really there is no reason why he should not be good for another ten years or so. Sir Andrew Clark says there is not an unsound spot in him. Of course a severe attack of bronchitis might carry him off, but you cannot find anything wrong about him now. He is truly a prodigy." townsman, Asa K. Smith, but it seem Asa himself dame to town and object ed. LeMars Sentinel: The Algona tip PER DBS MOUSES says the Algona Sup ply company^ of which G. L. Button i the manager, is a fraud. Suttoh was arrested last week for obtaining mone under false pretenses. It was though that Button would be released, as ni contracts are legally drawn, ^but th customer loses his money just th same. Buffalo Center, on the new railroad already has two dry goods, grocery am hardware stores, two banks, twn liver; stables, three lumber yards, a creamery hotel, restaurant, an agricultural im pletnent store, one elevator and auoth er under construction and a Congrega tional church, fully organized with th preacher on the ground. The minister Rev. Lawrence, is building a large two-story residence and expects to oc cupy one story of it for church an school purposes until buildings can b erected for those uses. The Emmetsburg Democrat quote the state dairy figures and says: From the above it' will be seen that Pal Alto county takes the lead in this sec tlon of the state with the exception Kossuth, which is almost twice aslarg in area as this county. Considerin its size, Palo Alto makes the bette showing. Humboldt. Pocahontas, an Buena Vista follow up closely, but Em met, Dickinson, Osceola, and O'Brie combined do not ship near as much as Palo Alto alone. Clay makes a reason ably fair showing, but is almost dis tanced by this county. The Sioux City Journal says: " The talk about Senatress Lease has about subsided. The toga worn by the next senator from Kansas will have hip pockets." The Dubuque Telegraph is just as good a prohibitionist as anybody—when it is its kind of prohibition that is in question. It says: "A strong lobby representing manufacturers is endeavoring to prevent the passage of the anti-cigarotte bill by the Alabama legislature. If the lobby succeeds the law makers will commit a crime against humanity." IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. Chas. Slaglo is now station agent at Rolfe. Hon.

THE DBS MOINES VALLEY. What a Xoted Foreigner Thought o Kossuth and Humboldt Counties. In extending Humboldt's welcome t the stock breeders, S. H. Taft gave glowing eulogy on the Des Moines val ley, and recalled an incident .worth, record. He said: " While we cannot entertain yo with any of the extraordinary exhib: tions of nature, such as towering moun tains, thundering waterfalls, and belch ing volcanoes, we can present you wit one of the most charming valleys of th world, where nature has laid in stor her richest bounties for her children bounties to procure and, appropriat which mankind are not compelled t delve in dark mines; nor are the. tempted to extravagance, as are some o' those who dig for gold, by attaining sudden wealth. But instead God ha here placed food, raiment, comfor and competency within man's reach where the thought and labor necessar, to their attainment is itself a blessing It may seem best that I fortify myse] in the claim I make for the upper val ley of the Des Moines by the testimonj of a distinguished yet disinterestec witness. Many years ago Lord Morph eth of England, when traveling in thi country spent several days with hi Scotch friend, Col.

That place was doubtless th wild, beautiful prairie where Hum boldt now stands." WINNING A BIG SUIT. TOM JOHNSON is the owner of the treet car system in Cleveland, Ohio. His first prominence in politics was vhen some five or six years ago he ame out as an advocate of Henry eorge's land tax theory. Part of that heory is the adoption of absolute free rade. Johnson is a free trader and assesses the courage of his convictions. He favors abolishing all tariffs and c«s- om houses. He was elected to con- ress on that issue.

We would be glad to see him ascend the ladder of fame, but we don't believe we could get along in this district without him for a couple of years at least. Emmetsburg Reporter: Our people who used to travel by team to Algona, in anti-railroad days, will remember the Nellis family, who lived by a turn in the road close by Lotts creek.

Our readers will remember the re ports published a year ago of a big sui to recover several million acres of rail road lands in California, in which ou old Algonian, JosephH. Call, was assist ing the United States attorney. Th following report from Washington t the Sioux City Journal indicates tha the suit was successful and that it wil mean a very profitable thing: The supreme court of the Unite- States has handed do#n a decision in a series of cases brought by the United States against the Southern Pacifi railroad, involving the title to severa million acres of land claimed by the railroad under its grant. The admin istration has been pushing these suit with great vigor in pursuance of it settled policy to recover all the publi domain wrongfully held' by railroad grants. In adddition to the official -at torneys for the government Hon. Jos H. Call, a distinguished lawyer of Call forma, and brother of A. F. Call o: Sioux City, was employed. The cases were argued last winter and the couri being equally divided, a reargumen' was ordered before the full bench, which now by a majority opinion re stores all the lands to the public do main. Much satisfaction is expressed over the result. The Los Angeles Times in speaking of the decision says: There were four cases brought by the United States by Joseph H. Call, special counsel in the United States circuit court, southern district of California. These suits were brought as test cases to determine the title of one and a half million acres o: land within the limits of the grant to the Southern Pacific Railroad company by the act of congress of March 3, 1871, which were overlapped by the grant to the Atlantic & Pacific railroad by act of cpngres of July 27, 1866, primary and indemnity limits. After protracted proceedings in the United States circuit court, a final trial was had in each suit, in which the judges of the circuit court, by Judge Sawyer, entered final decrees against the United States in each case, and from all these decrees appeals were taken to the supreme court of the United States by Mr. Call as special counsel for the government. The supreme court of the United States has now reversed each of those decisions of the circuit court and remanded the cause,- with instructions to enter .decrees for the United States. The lands involved in these suits, heretofore claimed by the Southern Pacific, are the odd numbered sections not previously granted by the United States in the territory bounded substantially as follows: On the north by a line drawn east and west through Lancaster; on the east by a line drawn north and south through the Cajon Pass, north of San Bernardino; oa the south by a line drawn from Santa Monica to Colton; and on the west by a line drawn worth ft"4 toufch tferougji CONCERNING A, L HUDSON He Lays Dowii His Work in Siotii Cit; and Will betote Himself to Stndy for a Time. His Resignation as Lftader 6f the Unit Club the Occasion of a Very Happy Event* The rumor that has beeii afloat fo some weeks that A. L. Hudson, wel known as former editor of THE UPPEI DES MOINES, was to quit the-, law busi ness and to leave Sioux Ci ty is con firmed by the Journal, which publishe a two coluntn report of his resignation as leader of the Unity club of that ciiy It is said that Mr. Hudson will spend year in study. Speeches were made b, various members of the club very com plimentary to his work, and a finely en graved silver cup was presented to him and an original poem was read by Hon E. H. Hubbard expressing the regre of all at parting: Farewell I we linger o'er the word, How much It means, thus heart to heart, Now from the lips of friendship heard, One handclasp and we drift apart. Farewell! we cry and mean it all. You go, we stay in old time ways. On untried heights you risk the fall, We live on slow pacing days. Oh I Better, friend, we know for you The path you choose, the life you love. God bless you in it, make you true To your full hope, all self above! Why do we hold you as you go? why meanly measure loss and gain? What can the miser soul e'er know Of victor's glory or martyr's pain? Go! And whatever may betide, In these hard days of money might, He hazards nobly who dare take the side . Of God and his followers in the fight. In presenting his resignation Mi- Hudson said " that in laying down th work he wished to leave a messag with the club in one word, which shoul be so comprehensive and enduring tha it might express his pride in th achievements of the past and his am plest hope for its future progress, ant which might at the same time serve a a motto for the years to come. He ha thought of the word 'Harmony,' bu while harmony of spirit had alway been present in the work of the clu and was much to be desired, harmon in thought had very fortunately bee conspicuous for its absence, and th success of the club had been largel due to the broad catholicity of its in yitation to varied and conflicting opin ion. He had considered the wor 'Truth'as expressing the end to th pursuit of which the united energies o the club had been directed; but trutl is many sided and is seen from man standpoints. What is truth to one i rankest error to another. The pursui of truth has been the labor of the ages but thus far it had eluded all attempt of finite mind to crystalize its image What one age had stamped as trut had been discovered by oncoming gen orations to be the grossest misconcep tions of facts that lay beneath the sur face. And what we proclaim today ii sublimest confidence as the highes truth will suffer the same fate from th generations that are to come. But a he had thought tonight of the chang that had been wrought in his own view and feelings, and the broadening of th horizon of his thought during th seven years of his work with the club the word had come to him for what h sought. The one word which expresse all that the club had done and migh do was'Growth.' It mattered not i the discussions of the club whether th positions taken are true, and still les whether the majority may deem them such, but it was of utmost import tha these discussions should stimulat growth and evermore growth. Thi word he would leave as his message t the club. It has been'its motto in th past and if the time should ever conn when it ceased to be its motto, then thi time would have come to disband am let its chronicles be ended with thi epitaph: ' Its work is closed.' " The esteem in which Mr. Hudson was held is evidenced by the word spoken by other members. Mrs. Davi said: "Two weeks from tonight 'twill bi the splendor of the heavens, but thb holy hush of the Christmastide is upon us even now. And somehow as ' watched I thought that, like the shep herds of old, I caught the strains of tin song that the angels sing and my com rades bade me bring it^as my message good Ma unto you. It is: ' Peace and will. 1 Think what that means! ,„.„., peace, like some gentle dove, fold he' white wings and brood forever over the nest of your memory. If, when you think of this night, you ask yourself 'Unto these things have I attained? Remember how we answered back ' Ye have quit you like a man and been strong.'" Judge Wakefield in presenting the cup said: " No words of mine can fitly express the just appreciation of this club for your labor and service. Anc now, we, members of Unity club, as slight token, present this cup, this loving cup, this parting cup, to you Take it and remember that whatever else it may hold at any time, it is evei and always filled to overflowing with our esteem, our friendship and our love. These flowing from the highest, like the widow's cruse of oil, never fail and everywhere attend you, even to the ut termost parts of the earth. You can> not go beyond the periphery of our love." TAPPED THE WBONG MAN. Sheriff Graham, at the Point ofaRe- volver, Knocks His Man Down and Hundcufru IIlm-A Chicago Episode. An exciting episode in Sheriff Gralam's career has just come to light, al- -hough It occurred some two weeks ago. While he was in Chicago he had occa- >ion to walk down Canal street after dark. As he passed an alley in a ipeoially dark place some one touched him on the shoulder, and he looked .round to find himself facing the muz- le of a revolver. The man behind the weapon remarked " I want what little you have and want it quick." Jack remarked to the man that he had struck t right, it was "little" he would get, Sut moved as though to deliver his - IJ eo happened that he had his iapd.a }n MS overcoat pockets and that he was holding fte b^gie O f hie hiW revolver with his right hand , Was stopped.

THE STATE State Master J. E. Ulnckford Makes nh Address-Resolutions Adopted, Mr. and Mrs. J. K Blackford and L. Witham attended the meeting of the state grange at DOB Moines last week returning Thursday. Very full reports of the proceedings are given in the Dea Moines papers, the Register publishing Mr. Blackford's address in full. It ts & very able and urgent appeal for grang. es to push forward with the work of organizing granges, and keeping up grange spirit. The old officers were re-elected, and the next annual meeting will be held at grange 883 near Lenox. The following resolutions were adopted: Whereas, Gambling in agricultural products is morally as bad as other forms of gambling that arc criminally punished, and is entitled to no more toleration than these if so much, since it produces an equal, if not greater degree of public demoralization; ana, whereas, It is also the source of great economic injustice to producers, fictitious products being habitually used to fix prices upon a basis other than the natural and equitable one of the relation of demand to real supply; therefore, Resolved, That we urge upon the senate of the United States the prompt passage of the Washburn-Hatch bill, now pending before that body, to the end that the immoral and inequitable practice may be abolished; we heartily commend the courage of those members of congress who supported the measure in the house of representatives, and as heartily disapprove of that of those public servants who have opposed or shall ' hereafter oppose the passage of this bill, which is demanded by every consideration of justice or sound policy. That we are opposed to opening the world's fair ou tho Sabbath. That the Iowa State grange ask that convict labor in the state and also the prisoners in our county jails be employed on the public highways. That the Iowa State grange ask our senators and representatives to so amend the inter-state commerce law as to make it of practical benefit to the people. That wo demand of our senators and representatives the passage of such laws as will prohibit tho sale and manufacture of all adulterated food products. That we favor a law compelling the manufacturers of oleomargarine, butterino, and like compounds to color the product pink, and that this be forwarded by the secretary to our congressman. HEBE IS A SUBPBISE. A Testimonial with Reference to the Gold Cure that None AV111 Question —Not an Advertisement. The following card, from one well known in this section, may prove something of a surprise, yet it is but one of the many cases that are coining to light, every day. It is not an advertisement, but is simply offered to this paper for publication, and cheerfully given to the- public without a pecuniary consideration. It speaks for itself: A CARD TO THE PUBLIC. I have recently taken the Algona gold cure as given by Drs. Pride and Kenefick, for the liquor and morphine habit. I have for a number of years used both excessively. When I commenced taking the treatment I was using both and was anxious to quit, but found that I could not by my own effort. After taking the treatment for three weeks all craving for strong drink has entirely gone. Even the smell of whiskey sickens me now, and I wish to say to anyone that wants to be freed from this habit that this cure is the best thing they can take. I worked at my trade while taking treatment, and gradually gained in weight, and now am entirely cured, o. C. FILL. Abraham Lincoln, When leaving his home at Springfield, 111., to be inaugurated president of tho United States, made a farewell address to his old friends and neighbors in which he said, " Neighbors, give your boys a chance." These words come with as much force today as they did thirty years ago. How give them this chance? Up in the northwest is a great empire waiting for young and sturdy fellows to come and develop It en , d ' Brow up with the country.'' All over this broad land are the young fellows, the boys that Lincoln referred to, seeking to better their condition and get on in life. Here is their chance! The country referred to lies along the Northern Pacific railway. Here you can find pretty much anything you want. In Minnesota, and in tho lied Rivor valley of North Dakota the finest of prairie lands fitted for wheat and ?rain, or as well for diversified farming. In western North Dakota and Montana are stock ranges limitless In extent, clothed ivith the most nutritious of grasses, If a fruit farming region is wanted there is the whole state of Washington to select from. As for scenic delights the Northern Pacific railroad passes through a country unparalleled. In crossing the Rooky, Bitter Koots, and Cascade mountains the greatest nountain scenery to bo se.en in the United states from the car windows is found. The vonderful bad lands, wonderful in graceful orm and glowing color, are n poem. Lakes Pend d' Orellle and Cceur d' Alene are alone worthy of a trans-continental trip, i , *m? y are the fisherman's untima •rime. The ride along Clark's fork of the Lolumbia river is a daylight dream. To sap the climax this is the only way to reach he far-famed Yellowstone park. To reach and see all this the Northern J aoifio railroad furnishes trains and serv- ce of unsurpassed excellence. The most ipprovoU and comfortable palace sleeping ars; the best dining cars that can be made; 3 ullman tourist cars good for both first and econd-class passengers; easy riding day caches, with baggage, express, and postal ars, all drawu by powerful Baldwin loeo- WotiveB, make a train fit for royalty itself.
