Every farmer In Kossuth county f should attend the agricultural meeting • next Wednesday. Let the court house \ be filled. The telegraph company has fitted up a neat office in the front of the post- office and Miss Eva Lantry is now found at her new station. Married, on Jan. 17, by S. A. Thompson, J. P., at the home of the bride's parents in Union township, Jesse Jackson tind Ada R. McCain. The rumors of new buildings next spring are thick as blackberries in autumn. But no definite plan for an opera house seems to emerge. Dr. Morse now owns the property north of Mrs. Mclnty_re's, onThorington street. He bought it of A. Lattimer, and will make his home there soon. The story goes that O. A. Potter recently hauled 5,200 of hay to the Hobart station at qno load. That seems like piling it on thick—the hay, we mean. There will be a special meeting of the W. C. T. U. at the reading room on Friday afternoon, at 8 o'clock. Members please take notice and be present. The Reporter says that Carl Oleson of Wesley is going to Chicago to enter the commission business. Wesley is contributing liberally to Chicago's business men. W. S. Dorland writes from Llano, Texas, that a new $50,000 hotel will be completed next month, a_nd is christened "The Algona." • It is a good hotel with a good name. The Webster City Tribune, speaking ofthecominr editorial meeting, says: " Algona is a good town, inhabited by good people; und they will take care of the newspaper craft in fine shape." The LuVerne News says: Mrs. A. C. Willey returned home on Tuesday from Eagle Grove, She had been caring- for her sister, Mrs. Rev. Glasgow, who has been quite ill of late. A Hebron correspondent of the Lu- Verne News says that Mrs. Kline's suicide was because her husband ; sold his stock for less than two cents a pound. The writer adds, cattle ought to be higher! John Edwards has disposed of his livery business and the new man has taken possession. John, however, is an active fellow, and will find something to busy himself at without leaving Algona. The special meetings at the Baptist church begin tomorrow evening, to be conducted by the noted evangelist, C. M. Palmer. Mr. Palmer comes from Kansas, where he has had greatpuccess. Much is expected from his visit to Algona. The ladies of the M. E. church will give an oyster supper at Grange hall on Thursday, Jan, 21, Supper from 5 p. 'm. until all have been served. Supper, 25 cents. Everybody is cordially invited to come. The Womans' .Home Missionary so: ciety will meet with Mrs. Perry Wili kins on Thursday afternoon at 8 o'clock. J;The president desires a large attend- f'ance, us there is some business that ? should be attended to. Letters are advertised for D. W. Danson, AlpheusLumbert, H, H. Smith, Ida M. Smith, Henry Simonds, J. Lour- dets, Chas. Sutton, Geo. Halfrick, Mrs. Mary Morgan, John Pierce, Miss Alice Hard, and P. Gustafson. Bro. Platt of the LuVerne News mourns the loss of ayear-and-a-half old baby boy, Geo, W, Hanna writes a sympathetic, obituary notice for the News, and all will join in mourning with., the bereaved parents. The )adies have arranged the fourth Demoregt silver medal contest to be held at the Congregational church Friday evening of this week. These contests have proved very entertaining, and a big audience should attend, Geo. Frink has been installed chancellor commander of the K. of P. lodge in Wesley, and set up the oysters in proper style. We mention this for the benefit of the incoming officers here at home, soon to be installed. This is good oyster weather. J. C. Blackford has retired from the First National bank, and his future course is not decided. He has been a popular twid successful business man in Algona, ai;* we express a common sentiment in saying that an intention to leave Algona would be regretted by everyone. A change in the management of the i First National bank occurred last week, K. Ferguson being chosen cashier. Ferguson is well known to the itvons of the hank and the people of i couuty and is a careful an<| cautious business manager. His friends will 1 congratulate him on his promotion. A fare opportunity is offered for anyone who wants to buy a welt-established mercantile business in the proposed sale of the Lawson & Oleson Bros. r business at Wesley ^ particulars of which are published elsewhere this week. It is ad old-established business and a good paying 1 one.'" They give their reasons for selling. . John Goeders is just home from St. Paul, with, some.big bargains which He is offeririg to the public.. John makes a trip north every year during the dull season and can get better bargains thah in Chicago. The St. Paul people figure that all they get frota Iowa is a clean gain from Chicago, and make prices accordingly. The fact that C. C. Chubb is .to be president of the new bank at Burt and Ed. Murtagh cashier means a good business, management. Ed. is one of the best book-Keepers who ever came to Algona, and except that he is a democrat from away back, he is all right. He will give Burt a finely conducted business institution. Hosy Art/,, who used to live at Whittemore, fell between the cars on a freight coming into Wesley last Saturday night. Throe toes wore cut off of one foot, and the other foot was mangled and the bone broken nbovo the ankle. He was brought to Johns'hotel and Drs. Barr, Pride, and McCoy cut off his foot. He is doing well as could be expected. W. W. Wheeler has located in Des Moines and is manager of "The 1 W. W. Wheeler Lumber & Bridge Supply company." The company succeeds J. B. Marsh & Co., andomcesat4(i Clappe block. The business isdealingin hardwood lumber, and W. W. is an expert at that and will succeed. He is already full of business and has a fine opening. The case of Geo. Gardner, who was sent to the Independence asylum some months ago, would go to show that patients are well treated. George was sent back on account of lack of room, and left with his people in the north part of the county. But after a week he disappeared and soon turned up at the asylum again and was admitted. He liked Independence. We publish this week items showing recent financial cmbarassnients for the Andrews Opera company, so well known in Algona, and a'so an account of the terrible accident which befel them in Minnesota. Mrs. Ed. Andrews sang often in Algona, Ed. Andrews was the "funnyman" of the troupe. The accident is one of the worst that has lately happened'bn the road. W. J. Harding ventures this week into the editorial field with a bright and ne\vsy paper, The Elmore Eye. The Eye is open to good hotel fare as an opening item proves: "While in Algona the first of. the week we had the pleasure of finding ourselves quartered at the Hotel Tennant, and to anyone in search of a pleasant stopping place while at the Kossuth hub, we would, adyise the experiment of a stop at the Tennant." The Rantzow-Hubbard case comes on this week at Estherville. The attorneys, prisoners, sheriff, and witnesses went Monday and yesterday. Sheriff Graham came from Bancroft and took the prisoners over. Among those who are attending on this case are attorneys Joslyn and Sullivan, B. W. Haggard, Reimer and his son, Pete Collins, Walt. Stebb\ns, A. C. Johns, Jesse Call ah an, Seymour Allen, Miss Bowman, Mrs. Hubbard, and Mrs. Rantzow. A case of mental aberration was before the insane commissioners Monday. Geo. Ludwig, son of Peter Ludwig of Prairie, was brought up and committed to the Independence asylum. He is not dangerous but has crazy ideas. One thing that troubled him was that only Catholics would get to heaven and he wanted all to go. Then he would open his watch and spit in the works to clean them. Then he thought someone was after him and wouldtrytpjumpthrough a window, and so on. His brother went with him yesterday. It is thought that in a few months proper treatment will bring him out all right. E. B. Eddy was in from Buffalo Fork Monday and reported a wonderful religious revival at the church there. Rev. Forsythe began the meetings, and then Dr. Howe, an old evangelist but now physician and farmer at Ramsay, came down to assist, as Rev. Forsythe was taken sick. The meetings nave lasted four weeks, and 35 new members joined the church there and 12 others were converted and will join elsewhere. The church feels very grateful to Dr. Howe for his assistance and also to Rev. Wills, who came from north of Bancroft to hold one service. This revival is one of the most successful ever held in the county, and has brought to the church the support of nearly everyone in Buffalo Fork. It is said that cats have nine lives, but the usual feline is lucky to get through one of them with a whole body. At J. E. Blackford's, however, there was until last week a cat, that if it has not had nine lives, has certainly lived nine times as long as cats are expected to. It had passed its 21st year, and though blind and deaf and unable to walk might have reached its 22nd had it not become absolutely necessary to kill it. The cat has been a great family pet, and has grown up with the family from a kitten, and its remarkable age is a matter of record. We do not know what limit science has given to to cats in general, but we doubt if another known to have passed 21 years can be found in Iowa. Our state fair director, S, S, Sessions, not only was complimented by a re-election without opposition, but was mentioned in a very flattering manner in the speeches, McFall of Oskaloosa nominated him for his own successor and said that the finance committee had made special mention of the work of two directors, Mr. Sessions being one of them. Senator Perkins of Page said he seconded the nomination of Mr. Sessions when he was first elected and now it gave him added pleasure to renew his second, since his record had been made. L. L. Klinefelter of Mason City also seconded, and the vote was unanimous. The work of Mr. Sessions and J. W. Wadsworth in the department of privileges was recognized by all, and this election in a body, in which such a noted stock breeder as D. M. Moninger was defeated, is a high compliment to our townsman. ,•" \ " ' APPLES viay C5c a bushel at Patterson Bvoe.'

Horace Dnwson'H Kscapndo at Em- metaburg Due to Drlnlt — No Word as to Ills Whereabouts. The Reporter gives a report of the runaway of Horace Dawson, which we noted last week, and says: Sorry as it may seem, yet it is a fact that newspaper readers usually measure a newspaper writer's capacity by his ability to make the most out of any sensational item that may come to his notice. Knowing this, newspaper men are not favorable to telling in a two line item what would make a very readable half- column article. The story of Horace Dawson's sudden and unexpected departure from Emmetsburg last Friday night is now quite generally known, and no mention can be made of it without causing some hearts to ache. The years are not long since Horace Dawson was recognized as one of the trustworthy and respectable young business men of Emmetsburg. He won a most estimable young lady for his wife, furnished her with a comfortable home, and started out with a prosperous business. Now, alas, how sadly have things changed. The young husband steals away from his wife and two bright little children, and they have no assurance that he will ever return. But one reason can be given. for it all. Strong drink, which has blighted other homes before this one, is alone to blame for this fugitive father and deserted wife and children. The time that should have been given to his business was squandered in the gratification of an ungovernable appetite, and the result was only what might be expected. Horace Dawson was not what might be called a bad man, and this is what makes the case an unusually sad one. When at home he was kind to his family and always provided for them uncomplainingly. He visited them the night before he left, wont into the bedroom where the children were sleeping and took away with him a picture of his little girl. These things show that Horace Dawson had a tender heart, and that he did not leave his family without a struggle. Let Christian charity still hope that he may free himself from the demon that has debased him, and again return to the loved ones he has so greatly wronged, ANOTHER ACCOUNT. Emmetsburg -Democrat: On Friday night about midnight Horace Dawson, who kept the barber shop in the First National bank block, took an east bound freight and has not been heard of since. He told one of the operators at the Milwaukee depot that he was going to Algona to see his brother, but he was just after seeing his brother, whom he owed $200 that was past due some time ago. He picked up all his razors and harboring tools and took them with him. He leaves a good, young wife and two children, one two years old and the other about two months old. They did not have enough to keep them 24 hours, He has of late been drinking, carousing, and gambling, and has not been attending to business. As is usually the case, he is owing numerous bills around town and will likely never return to Emmetsburg. Charles Gusland, a brother of Mrs, Dawson, is taking care of her and her two little children. HIRAM C.
