Pleasant some time ago, and the action of the pastor, G. W. Thorne, was upheld by tho official board of the church, and subsequently the parties in the controversy, Rev. Mr. Thorno and Mr. McCraoken, agreed to leave the matter in the hands of Bishop Joyce and lot his decision be final. This agreement was in writing, and the decision of the learned bishop sustained the pastor and official board in every particular. Mr. McCracken now brings suit in tho district court, before Judge W. D. Tisdale, against the Methodist church of Mt. Plcnsant to compel it to admit him to membership. Miss Bessie Wheeler, daughter of H. C. Wheeler, was married to Byron W. Mills of Chicago last week. By tho way, H. C. Wheeler is now a resident of Chicago, having bought a fine homo there some months ago. His son Paul manages tho big Odebolt farm. Adams county makes a big exhibit at Chicago. It was shipped last week. There were nine large boxes, containing more than two tons of wheat, oats, corn, buckwheat, seeds of all kinds, etc., besides blue grass, timothy, clover millet, wheat, oats, rye, etc., in the straw. Had the exhibit not been preserved it would have been impossible to secure many of these productions boforo fall. Much of the grasses, grains, etc., will be used for decoration purposes. Spencer has held a meeting on the opera house question. It is related that an Iowa woman .went into a telegraph office and informed the operator that her husband had gone to Sioux City to get a motto for a Sunday school, but she had forgotten to toll him the inscription or how large the motto was to bo. She wanted to know how long it would be before her husband could get the particulars if she should send them by telegraph. She was told. Doubtless the fellow was startled when he read it, for without explanation it simply said: "Dear Frank, BoogeHotel, Sioux City —Unto us a child is born, eight feet long and two feet wide." A lively legal contest is promised ever along Lost Island lake at Ruthven. Someone has found out that part of the shore has never been surveyed by the government and is still public domain. Squatters have settled all over it and begun improvements, while the former owners are preparing to bring suit. _______ There is an exceedingly peculiar case in the Anamosa penitentiary in the person of Convict John Symons, whose last of a sentence of 20 years for murder is fast drawing to a close. He is past 70 years of age, and was sent to prison from Clayton county, where he was an inmate of the county poor house at the time the crime was committed. The old man is exceedingly sorrowful to think his sentence is so near completed and that he is so soon to be turned out upon the charities of tho cold world. He hasn't a living relative in the world and don't know what to do, as he has become accustomed to and satisfied with prison life and never had a better home. He begs to be permitted to remain and spend his few remaining years in the quietude of the penitentiary walls. Commissioner Jarnagin, speaking at Des Moines of the rejection of Iowa pictures by the national committee, said: The showing made by Iowa artists was generally considered to be a very creditable one. The national jury was made up almost entirely of eastern men and took no pains to see the Iowa pictures. They visited the building for about half an hour last Wednesday afternoon and did not more than take a hasty glance at the forty-five pictures shown there. But very few pictures were chosen any where from the west. It is announced that Allerton (2:09i) will not be trained this year, but will be in the stud the entire season. His service fee has been reduced from $300 to $200, with yery liberal privileges. The state university graduated six dentists and 39 allopath doctors last week. Three of the latter were ladies. Tho town of Sheldahl, over on the Ames branch of the Northwestern road, is peculiarly situated, being located in four townships, three counties, two congressional, two senatorial and two judicial districts. Perhaps the oldest piano in the state is in tbe possession of Thos. Woodring of Waverlyi As near as can be learned tWa instrument was made about the te flwefpre ropre than go olinus, for his daughter, at a cost of $700, but before its arrival, ocean travel not being so rapid in those days as now, the daughter for whom it was intended, eloped and married against her father's wishes. She therefore never got the piano. It was sold to a man by the name of Jackson, of Virginia, and later by him brought to Galena, 111. This man Jackson is said to have built and owned the house that was afterward presented to General Grant as a residence. The piano was brought to Waverly by Mrs. Wearne, formerly of that city, about 20 or 25 years ago, she having bought it of Jackson about ten years before. ^^^^^ Nearly 600 entries have been made for the Mason City races. Purses aggregating $40,000 have been hung up. A romantic wedding took place in West Union last week between S. C. Hardcsty of Now Mexico and Miss Maggie Karoy of Ohio. Long ago, back east, they wore lovers. Ho went west to acquire a fortune, she to Cincinattito reside with a brother. They corresponded regularly, and recently he suggested a matrimonial alliance, appointing the time, and that city as the place of meeting. And so, after more than, ten years, both pretty well along in life, the lovers met according to appointment, he having journeyed 2,000 miles, and she 600, and they were married. He is a wealthy miner, and she is comfortably situated. This history was told to the officiating minister by the groom after the ceremony. FUNERAL OF MBS. PATTERSON, A T-ini'KO Gathering of Trloiids Attend Her llomuiiiB to tho Algona Cemetery. The funeral services over the remains of Mrs. A. W. Patterson wore held at the home Friday at 2 o'clock. The house was crowded with friends, and Rev. Davidson spoke feelingly of her life and work. In spite of the day a long procession followed to the cemetery, where the members of the Eastern Star decorated the grave with fresh flowers. Mrs. Patterson was born in Green county, Wis., Jan. 18, 1849, and married to Mr. Patterson in 1871, coming then to Algona.

MHS, MAHY A. VINCENT, Mns. LOHA M, UODINSON, Mas. DONA L. LEFT HIS OBEDITOBS. A KoBsutli Man Sells His Farm and Stock, and Gets Away LeaYlng $1,GOO Unpaid Debts. Some ten days ago Sheriff Graham and Geo. W. Skinner started west on a mission of justice incident on the late session of the grand jury. Their purpose was to secure the person of one Schermerhorn, who left Kossuth under circumstances which reflect little credit on him, and which insured a deficit of some $1,500 to his creditors. He was the owner of a big farm near Bancroft, had lots of stock and personal property, and was considered * l gilt edged" by everybody. On the strength of his standing he was able to borrow on his individual note, and had made loans of the State Bank of Bancroft, Mr. Skinner, and many others. Then a few weeks ago he successfully sold his farm, all his stock and property, and with his family drove to Emmetsburg and took the train for the west without attracting any attention. His neighbors supposed he had gone to Emmetsburg on a visit, and did not know differently until the fact was published that the farm was sold. Mr. Schermerhorn was indicted by the grand jury, and will undoubtedly come back to Kossuth with more attention than he left. It is thought he had fully $9,000 when he went. The latest report of the searching party is that they have located the family at Helena, Mont., but will have to go farther to catch him. THINK!
