Mr. Conner is feeding two oars of steers, which he expects to make into the best export stock by March, nnd Mr. Benschoter is feeding steers and hogs. A number in Plum Creek, Portland and Burt are feeding, and at present the prospect is that they will make a good margin. It is definitely settled now that in the early spring the Milwaukee road will put on a fast passenger train. As rumored now the train will leave Algona about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, arriving at Chicago early in the morning. Some claim that it will leave Algona as late as 7 o'clock, arriving early in Chicago. In any event a fast train is assured, to begin probably in May.

A note from Norman L. Cotton of Whittemore, received yesterday, brings the sad intelligence that his wife died yesterday morning of consumption. The particulars with reference to her age, etc., are not at hand. She was formerly Miss May Cook, and one of the foremost teachers of the county. Her parents live near Burt. The funeral will take place at the church in Whittemore tomorrow at 1 o'clock. An entertainment of rare merit is promised for Thursday evening, Dec. 29, at the Congregational church, by the "Campus Quartette" of the University of Minnesota. The quartette pathy, but the man who would deliberately swindle a hard-working widow out of $120 is as conscienceless a rascal as "ever scuttled ship or cut a throat." The Sioux Rapids Press heads its item about the Button case " Started Him Over the Road." It says: One G. L. Sutton, who claimed to represent the Algona Supply company, secured what purported to be true duplicate contracts from each of several farmers in this vicinity to act as their agents. He soon afterwards attempted in several places to sell notes on the same men, which were undoubtedly two of the papers supposed to be contracts.

He was brought here and the preliminary hearing was before Judge Brainard yesterday. It resulted ih having him bound over to the grand jury. Mr. Quarton, one of Kossuth's leading lawyers, defended, but met his match. We expect that next week we shall be compelled to bid Bro. Hays goodbye. It will be the culmination of a series of farewells he has treated us to. First we dropped a tear over the untimely retirement of Bill Nye and his department of the Republican. Then Prof. Jim Wilson and his farm department winked out and wo again wept. Then Jake Freeh's name as one of the editors disappeared, and it was like parting with old friends. And now Bro. Hays himself jumps off the tripod from which he scanned the " innards" and "outards" of the press of the state, to become an ordinary drummer. It has been a severe strain on our lachrymal ducts, and if in addition to all this wo should now be compelled to say farewell to " home print," we can give no sort of assurance as .to what will happen. We are getting in the frame of mind that Rev. Davidson described, in his dream, "Everlasting Farewells, Miserere, Miserere." Baptist Entertainment. The Baptist ladies of Algona regret to say that, owing to the prevalence of whooping cough among the children, an important part of their programme must be omitted, and their candy festival will be held at Miss Cramer's rooms on Thursday evening of this week.

Farmers of Kossuth should keep it in mind that the state dairy commissioner finds from the figures given by the railways that 300,000 pounds less butter was shipped last year than the year before, and that he credits the shrinkage here as all over the state, to the bad roads last spring. At 20 cents a pound this is $60,000 less received this year than last, all due to bad roads How many years can we afford to lose 8oU,- 000 on butter alone and keep on with our present worthless system of road work? One of the finest art displays in Algona is J. F. Nicoulin's new photograph frame in his gallery.

Milk Delivery. We are now prepared to deliver milk and cream in any part of town every morning. Order ft* the holiday^ Court adjourned last Thursday evening to Monday of this week. The case taken up Monday morning, and one which has excited a good deal of interest, was that of Caroline Ward against Arthur Ward. This is the culmination of the domestic infelicity which has existed in that family for some time, and readers will remember the details of a family row given in our Wesley .correspondence some months ago. At the September term of the district court a suit for a divorce was brought, and Mrs. Ward was given the custody of one of the four children and $800 alimony, the other three children remaining with Mr. Ward. In the present term she brought another suit to set aside the decree of Judge Thomas and for the custody of all the children. The case was tried to the court and occupied all of Monday and Tuesday forenoon, Geo. E. Clarke and F. M. Taylor for the plaintiff and W. B. Quarton and J. W. Sullivan for the defendant. The testimony developed a peculiarly infelicitous and inharmon- Fous state of affairs in the Ward fami- guspenders, Nice ones.

In this case much was brought out in the way of correspondence and conduct on the part of both Mr. and Mrs. Ward to show that hostilities were by no means at an end, and some of the letters tba were presented in evidence would not look well in newspapers. Judge Carr, at the close of the arguments by the attorneys, reviewed the case at some length, in the course of which he administered a stinging rebuke to both plaintiff and defendant concerning their actions since the divorce was granted, adding that it was an agrayat- ed case, and one in which he found it very difficult to decide without reference to his personal feelings. He said that, according to his best judgment, neither party was fit to have the care of the children, and he wished there was some method by which he could put them in the hands of some competent person, but this being beyond his jurisdiction he would leave the case as it was before this suit was brought, and continue the case on the calendar with the hope that further investigation, which he should endeavor to have made, would throw sufficient lightupon some of the dark sides of the case to enable him to reach an equitable conclusion.
