Now is the time to buy cheap, The regular meeting of the W. C. T. U. will be held in the reading room on .Friday at 3 o'clock. Marriage licenses have been issued to N. B. Tyler and Elite M. Gibbs, P. W. Tobin and Bridget Cosgrove. Julius Pleth is now the owner of some blooded horses which take a baclc seat for nothing. Julius always has the best. ••iDr. Glasier, the new dentist, has his office in the Ferguson-Hoxie block open. He is to go into the new bank block soon, A little girl arrived at Mat. Holtz- bauer'8 last Friday, and our faithful court house attendant is feeling happy accordingly. 1 The Y. M. C. A. meets at the Methodist church Sunday afternoon at 4. Also Tuesday evening at 7:30 to complete organization. The Ruth ven Free Press says; "Mr. and Mrs, Witham of Algona visited with their daughter, Mrs. C. D. Price, the latter part of last week," Although Mr. Sample at Irvington has been reported several times very low the past week he is still alive, There is no hope of recovery, A representative of the Iowa State band was here last week trying to arrange to give a concert. They expect to play at Bancroft this month, A meeting of young men was held i Friday to organize a Y, M, C. A, association, Editor Mayne presided. Next the election of officers will oc- •our. - ' Studley's new drug store will probab- "/' lyopen for business next week, We learn that he is putting in some fine fixtures and will have a handsome room.

' A note from G. H. Peters locates him at Monrovia, CaL, where he orders his ; UPPER DES MOINES sent. We hope he is enjoying the climate, and improving in health. * Amie WpUswe has ft large daw* in every Saturday evening. She is a good teacher, and it is a fine opportunity for tho young people. Our types last week made the county clerk's salary read $400. It should have been $460. Even then the clerk has the hardest office in the county and the least salary. It is reported that the Thorington house property will be sold in a few weeks. A new owner may put some life into the institution. The Baptists expect to have their new church ready for meetings next month. They will seat it with good opera chairs. They already are meeting in the lecture room. The grand jury selected for the present adjourned term of court are J. H. Ward, Caspar Wa.lbillig, L. H. McChesney, E. N. Weaver, Henry Bell, M. Freilinger, and E. McWhorter. While walking by the old Grove livery barn last Friday Ambrose A. Call slipped, and in falling sprained his wrist. The accident is not serious, but the wrist swelled badly and is very painful. Col. Thos. F. Cooke went to Cedar Rapids yesterday to attend the meeting of national guard men, who are planning how to get the troops to Chicago next summer. They decide what to do today. Dr. Sayers shot seven glandered horses in Emmet county lust week. Although he has been called all over this part of the state to see horses said to have glanders, these were the first he has found. J. W. Sullivan has a brother whose taste we are bound to commend. He presented to J. W. a fine Sargent revolving book case on Christmas for his law office, and a man who can pick out a good book case is an expert. Col. Spencer has now about 500 tons of pressed hay in his barn near the railroad tracks, and out at Sexton the town is submerged with bales. If hay goes booming this spring as it usually does he will have a big thing. Letters remaining uncalled for in the Algona postofllce: A. L. Smith, Harry Shaner, Ed. Sloan, Wm. Staples, Niels Larson, Christ. Miller, John L. Johns, Peter Ghertz, A. D. Grow, C. H. Bishop, N. M, Fehrm, Mr. Kilduff. The opera house decorators will fresco the new bank room, and have made an estimate for finishing the Congregational church walls. They need painting badly enough, and the church should take advantage of the opportunity. At the women's world's fair club meeting at Mrs. J. W, Robinson's last week Mrs. Hedrick rend a paper on the various congresses to meet in Chicago, and Mrs. Robinson one on the drama. Both are highly spoken of by all who heard them. W. B. Quarton went to Northwood Monday to defend in a criminal prosecution, has a case this week in O'Brien county, and is wanted here at home in court. We shall have to have some of those hundred mile an hour railroads up here if his business increases. Sheriff Graham and Deputy Mclnroe were busy during the board meeting last week figuring up the fees of the Office for 1892. The board called for a report, the first that has been made in 12 years. They will fix the next year's salary in accordance with what it shows, The LuVerne News at last chronicles the wedding of our old R. M- McAllister. .THE UPPEB DES MOINES noted the issuance of the license some weeks ago, but of course at 73 a/nd 67, the ages of the groom and bride, they do not hurry matters as swiftly as they might. Mrs. Spicer of Irvington Is the bride, and Rev. Forsythe performed the ceremony. The second winter term of %e normal school begins next Tuesday. will be the best term of the year, and fte. preset i^Jtqa^fonj ^re Ib^t $h,ere will be a much larger attendance than ever before. Prof. Chaffee is making a good school, and more and, more students are coming here from neighboring counties in preference to going further away. Those of our readers who remember Geo. M. Chapman, who was at one time livery man in Algona, will regret to learn of his recent death. A note from Mrs. Chapman says he died Jan. 3 at his home in Swaledale. He leaves one son to mourn with Mrs. Chapman. Mr. Chapman was a brother of Mrs. Jane Lamb, and a man of many excellent qualities. If Kossuth sends anything to the world's fair the finely carved oak chair in the postofflce window should be included. It is Ernest Laage's work, and as fine a specimen of carving as is often seen. Laage's work attracted special attention at our state fair two years ago, and it is safe to say that this chair would be an ornament to any exhibit on the world's exposition grounds. Mr. Laage is a master of his art. An Algona artist received flattering recognition at Cedar Rapids in the selection of paintings to be taken from Iowa,.to the world's fair. Mrs. M. Starr exhibited some of her work and her name is included in the list. Mrs. Starr's paintings have been very much admired by all who have seen them, and her contribution will aid in securing Iowa proper recognition as the home of art. The decorators will be done with the opera house proper this week. They have done a handsome piece of work, and brought out the real beauties of of the interior design. We have heard nothing but words of praise for them, Mr. Call has spared no expense on his building, as everybody will see when it is opened. The carpenters are about done and some of the seats will be in this week. Dr. Armstrong and Glen Brunson returned Monday from Independence. They had no trouble with Mr. Devine until they arrived at for the night. He could not sleep and became very unmanagable. The next day in •oing to the asylum he thought the Williams race track grounds were Am- jrose A. Call's bottom lands, and was persuaded that the asylum was the Tennant House. He was very tired and weak. He did not seem to realize where he was and made no disturbance. Prof. Chaffee wus in Des Moines last week securing a successor to Prof, Carlton as commercial teacher in the normal school. Prof. Curl ton goes to accept a similar position in the Sioux Dity business college, but our school is ucky in securing a man for his place. The new teacher is a graduate of the same school as Prof, Carlton, and in addition has taken a full course in penmanship under Prof. Ketchner of the famous Lauernan school. He will be hero for the opening of the coming term next week. The board should plan before long to add a new office and two new vaults to the court house. The recorder's office already needs the auditor's vault room, and the treasurer's office the clerk's vault room, while in all the late designs for offices there are two' apartments in the auditor's office giving a separate room to the board forits meetings. The vaults in the basement are to uffltoandy and, thus far, too damp for use. Some addition will soon be need' ed, if all the county officers are not to be cramped in their work. It seems that the Winkel Bros, were caught in the crash which brought down throtting horse prices in Chicago. The sale they put "Byron Sherman" into is usually the big of the year, but this time prices went to pieces. AUertou's colts sold for one- third of their sire's service fee, and standardTbred horses sold way down below |100. " Byrpp Sherman" brought only $140, which is scarcely ^he price oi a roaster, Jt wp ment to all horsemen, as well as to our local sellers. There wero few buyers and lots of horses. It seems that now that the Bancroft postofflce is to be filled by presidential appointment, Mr. Mayne will get a presidential commission before the new administration comes in. That at least is the report. An interesting query is what would happen if ho should get a four year's commission and President Cleveland should go slow with his removals? Our democratic brethren in tho northern metropolis would have a good long waiting spoil. The faint prospect of such an occurrence causes us to condole with Bros. Holloway, Pettibone, and Byrne. , Joel Taylor, on tho Ingham farm, is very enthusiastic over German millet as a dairy crop. Ho hud some land last spring which was so wet that he could not plant it with corn. About July 1 he sowed millet. His crop was fully four tons to the acre, and he 3gures that two tons will make more 'eed than three tons of timothy and clover. The cattle will not touch the best tame hay when the millet is about, and they'leave no stems or straw when .t is fed. There is absolutely no waste, ;t keeps the stock in good condition, and makes a big flow of milk. Unless .t exhausts the soil it seems to bo the ideal crop where cows are kept. The Lu Verne News likes Ben Smith, t thinks the new supervisor should lave come south. It says it " has not the least doubt that the north end will be well looked after, but neverthe- ess, as a line drawn from east to west through the southern suburbs of our county seat would- leave the entire board north of it, it would seem that ;here are a few bristles on the job after all." The News must remember that Dr. Peters' place was being filled, and as he was from Ramsay it was only fair to choose from that township. If the ward isn't fairly distributed it is the 'ault of our conventions and elections. HIS REASON FAILED HIM. Barnct DC vine, One of Kossuth's Pioneers, Adjudged Insane and is Sent to the Asylum. He Was Violent at Times, and No Other Course Was Open—The Story is a Painful One. PEBSOffAL MOVEMENTS. B. W. Haggard made a business trip ;o Milwaukee Saturday evening. Leo Peugnet goes to Chicago to spend a week. He will visit with Pearl Pugh. Alex. White returned from his Texas .rip Friday. Mrs, White is also haok rotn her visit. Mrs. Dr. Shore returned to Des Moines Monday, after a pleasant two weeks' visit at home. , Miss Mamie Lantry started for Milwaukee last Thursday evening, where she will visit Florence Crandall. Mr. and Mrs. Cheever Hudson returned from their .wedding trip Monday evening, and are at home to their friends after Feh. 1, All will welcome them to Algona. A. D. Clarke came home from Wisconsin last week, but Mrs. Clarke is still at Fond du Lao, where Miss Edith will meet her and both return to Algona this week. * Mr, and Mrs. J, F. Nicoulin were in Omaha last week on a visit, and met while there the families of J. J. Wilkinson and J. B. Eininger. They found them well and prospering. Kossuth is pretty well represented at the state agricultural college. Messrs. Saulsbury, Bossingham, and two McCalls are taking the veterinary course, one of the Covell boys is studying engineering, and Tibbetts, Best, and Raney are taking the ten-week's dairy course. J. W. Wads worth and S. S. Sessions went to Des Mones Monday, the former to read a paper before the horse-breeders' association, and the latter to attend the annual meeting of the state agricultural society, It will ba decided tomorrow whether we ure to have ft state fair this year or not. Mr. See. sions favors a, fair, b,el|eying ^^ The various rumors of the insanity of Barnet Devine were all confirmed last Friday when, witli the assistance of his relatives, he was brought to Algona and examined by the board of commissioners and committed to the asylum nt Independence. Dr. Barr being absent Dr. Morse wus appointed in his place on the board and conducted the examination. His report to the asylum authorities was that Mr. Devine is 70 years of age, that he is violent at times, that his main trouble is a fear that he is being robbed. In talking of the case Dr. Morse says that it is entirely possible that Mr. Devino may never recover, as his physical health is broken. His spinal nerve system, as well as his brain, is affected, and it takes him several seconds to reach his nose or mouth with his hand, to light a cigar, for instance. To many who visited him at the Tennant house Friday he seemed rational for a few minutes. But us soon as he began to talk of anything beyond the first greetings it seemed to be about some two who had injured him and taken all he had. His theory of leaving Algona was that he was after a. thief. Dr. Armstrong and Glen. Brunson accompanied him, leaving on the 9:30 Milwaukee train east. THE UPPER DES MOINES would hesitate to make public anything which would injure the feelings of our well- known pioneer or his friends, but the facts about his trouble are so widely spread that there is no occasion for concealment. The immediate causepf his insanity was an attack of delirium tremens, the excessive drinking which brought this on being caused by some troubles at home, about which there are many conflicting rumors. The certificate of the commissioners states that he has used liquor to excess for thirty years, which will be news to many. It was generally known that Mr, Devine was a drinking man, and rumors of attacks of tremens several times before this have been afloat, but it was not generally supposed that he was what would be called a hard drinker. He was so still and discreet in his methods that he never allowed liquor to show any effect on him. His health ordinarily was excellent, but he complained to several of his friends the past fall, and talked of spending the winter in another climate if he could dispose of his cattle and quit feeding. Mr. Devine came to the county in the summer of 1856 and took the claim on the river where he now lives. He lived three months in his wagon bed and' endured all the hardships of pioneer life. He early engaged in stock raising, and from that branched out into buying cattle and feeding, In this he was very successful, and it is doubtful if a shrewder buyer has ever done business in Iowa. He accumulated money rapidly and is now one of the wealthiest, if not the wealthiest man in this part of the state. Before coming to Kossuth Mr. Devine spent six years in the gold mines of California, and bo- fore that was in Chicago five years. He was born in Ireland, coming to Quebec at the age of 14, He has a wife and nine children. The county commissioners at the request of Mrs. Devine and the family appointed John G. Smith to htvve charge of his business aff&Jrf ujjtil some permanent disposal may Jjk' made. This insures a careful^ietratiop of his. fairs, until may be right about it, and that he will soon bo buck and clothed in his right mind. HE OATJGHT HIS MAN, John TCend Captures n Snonk Thief- Good Anmteur Police Offlcer. Monday UH John Rood was sitting in his store ho noticed two men pass in front, one of whom acted in n suspicious manner ivhile in the neighborhood of somo sample overshoes hanging out. Goingt to tho door Mr. Rood saw a pair gone iind only ono man walking down tho street. With this ho wont to tho alloy by his building and just caught a glimpse of tho other fellow skulking 1 around a building. He nt orico gave chase and overhauled the thief in the roar of Carter's store. Tho follow had something big under his coat, and Mr. Rued run his bund in and pulled out one shoe, whereupon the othor was coolly handed over with the remark, "You may as well take this, too." Seeing no one about Mr. Reed took his man by the collar and led him over to the court house, and tho sheriff not being in lie kept him in the treasurer's office while Auditor Doxsee set out for an officer. Ho was then taken before 'Squire Taylor and given ten days' work on tho stroc-.ts for a fine. He gave as his name Thos. Dobson. Dedicated to J. W. II. THE UPPER DES MOINES extracts with pleasure the following affecting stanza from the mass of current verse: I want to be a. postmaster, Aud with tlie postmasters stand; An Ink pad ou tho table, A cancoler in my hand.
