Ringsdorf, who came to Kossuth in 1809, died Jan 23, He was 55 years of age and leaves five children, among them Prof. Barslou's wife. He was a well-known old settler and leaves many friends. The wife of Jacob Neilson died suddenly last Friday, leaving an infant child. Mr. Neilson has a large family which are thus left without a mother's care. The loss is mourned by many friends. Among our fancy stock men none are happier than Dr. Morse and F. S Stough over the prospective litter o: mastiff pups they are going to own They have an order from Chicago foi one of them already. A telegram Monday announced the death of Peter Swanson, which oc ourred at the home of C. E, Hyde in California. Mr. Swanson was a well liked citizen of Algona, and his death will occasion many regrets. Rev. Davidson announced Sundaj that he should probably terminate hi connection with the Congregationa church in June. He did not announce any definite plans. Very many woulc regret his departure from Algona. The Elmore Eye says: " Miss Emmt Zahlten, a young lady of Algona, Iowa is the guest of Mrs. G. W. Pangburn Miss ^ahlten is a proficient musician s well as an artist, and contemplates vorking up a class in music and art here." Carpenters have been atwork putting n a fine case of new lock boxes in the jostofflce, and also a new case of free elivery boxes. This very naturally eh- arges the capacity of the office, and is i good improvement. Algona has ex- ellent postofflce equipments. The Estherville Republican says of he Hubbard-tlantzow verdict: The opular opinion seems to be that the verdict was not far wrong. None of the mrties to the affair were by any means he best of citizens—sort of a cow gang, pparehtly, and alt of them would be mproved with a term in the pen. Young Hamilton, the seller of mort- 'tiged property, who was arrested in ndiana last week by Sheriff Graham, r as brought before Justice Austin in vreenwood and was dismissed because e was under age. His father assumed he whole debt, and paid all costs and xpenses, so thatthe county isout noth- ng. Miss Lydia Casner, who has made her ome with C. R. Lewis for a year, died Yiday night of consumption. The, uneral was held Sunday, Rev. Davidon attending, and the remains were aken to the Irvington cpmetery.

The special revival meetings conduct- d by Evangelist Palmer at the Baptist hurch will close today. He goes from ere to Mason City, and remains in the tate some time. He has met good sue- ess in Algona, and is universally poken of as a genial man and efficient vorker. The Baptist society is grow- ng rapidly in Algona, and has gained ew impetus from these meetings. The Lu Verne, Minn., paper has a ote about George Light: On Monday ext landlord Crosby turns over the Jommei'cial house to the new proprietor, . H. Gray. Geo. Light, for some time mat clerk of the house, becomes manger. Mr. Light is well qualified for he position, having been all his life ngaged in hotel work. His sister, rs. Taylor, who arrived yesterday, ill be the housekeeper. Another important land deal is about oncluded by which C. L. Lund comes nto possession of the Watson quarter adjoining J. E. Stacy's nursery. This >iyes Mr. Lund the whole Watson half ectioii, and puts over 1,100 acres in his arm. This quarter is one of the most /aluable in the county, and the whole arm is now as valuable a property for he future as any in Iowa. Mr. Lund will use drain tile freely in the spring, id put every acre under tribute. Agnes Murray, a daughter of James Murray, a stone mason at the Milwau- tee depot, has been slightly deranged or a couple of years. She has thus far >een kftpt at home, but the trouble p-adually increasing it was found nec- jssary to remove her to the asylum, ind she was brought before the insane commissioners and sent to Independence. Deputy Sheriff. Mclnroe took ler to Independence last Friday. All hog raisers will read B. F. Smith's article on the Chester White vith interest. He is breeding this ariety on a large scale, and is a firm jeliever in what he writes. The past season he has shipped and sold 44 full doods for breeding, and this season will raise 300 eligible to record. He is encing extensive clover ranges, and is mporting some sweepstakes prize sows, le proposes to make northern Kossuth noted for her hogs, Emmetsburg is arranging a shooting match of local interest. The Reporter says: A match shoot will take place Between Prof. Budd of Des Moines and Harry Wilson of Emmetsburg. Budd ,o shoot one barrel of his gun against Wilson's two barrels. At the same meeting a match shoot will come off be- ;ween the Highland Gun club of Des koines on one side and H. C. Shadboldt, 3. J. Wilson of Emmetsburg, Grim of 'Hear Lake, Smith of Algona, and Van teenburg of Spirit Lake on the other. Father Linehan has appointed J. W. Hinchon to take charge of the Russian 'elief fund for Kossuth county, and Mr. 3inchon has appointed the following iommittee to assist: J. C. Blackford, Dr. McCoy, J. B. Winkel, D. A. Haggard, O. P.

Anyone desiring to give grain, money, etc., should see the member of ;his committee for his township. Ex-Sheriff Stephens' plans are at last made public, and instead of accepting the position offered in Sioux City he joes to Ledyard, March 1, to become cashier of the new bank to be opened there then, J. B. Jones is president, and Earl Stephens will be book keeper. Everything is arranged for a first class business institution, and the combination will put a lot of hustlers in the new city. Mr. Stephens will take general supervision of the land business in that part of the county and devote his energies to getting new settlers properly located, and to seeing that the virtues and beauties of northern Kossuth are properly understood. Earl has been taking a business course at the normal school, and will be an efficient man in the office. Success to the Ledyard bank. Oscar Swanson, whose parents live near Bancroft, was killed near Creston a week ago. Rev. Luce in the Ban croft Register tells of the accident " He had been promoted to the position of engineer a day or two before the ter rible accident which took him from the dear ones who now mourn their grea' loss. The accident occurred at Union Switch, on the C. B, & Q. road, abou eight miles east of Creston, at about 6 o'clock, Friday morning Jan. 22. A train a few minutes in advance of his had a car with a broken truck and ii passing over the switch had broken anc torn up the switch so that when Oscar'i train came along with its faithful en gineer standing at his post it rushec headlong into the broken switch, work ing destruction to the engine and train and death to its faithful engineer." was buried at Bancroft Jan. 24. SAID Of CHESTER WHITES. iome Points of Value About the Breeding of This Distinctively Arner* ican-bred Porker. Likewise a Little of His General History —Originally He Came from Old English Stock. OUR new liveryman, L. E. Smith asks us to call attention to his fine liv ery rigs, He has plenty of horses and carriages, and can. fit anyone in th best of style. Mr. Editor: I will now try and coni- ly with your request, and also that of everal brother farmers, asking for omo light on the history and breed of he Chester White hog, which I will ry in my oJT-hand way to give. The Chester White" is the oldest distinct- y American bred hog in existence to- ay, and as such has had much with which to contend. Many burdens have >eeti laid upon him because of the evi- ent favor in which he wus held by his master. Fortunately for the Chesters ve have much statistical information f undoubted authority relative to their rigin which, taken in connection vith the established and noble charac- eristic of the citizenship of the Chester nd Delaware counties, Pennslvania, roes to prove quite conclusively that hey are and have been a distinct as veil as meritorious breed. In the year 1813 an English ship anded at Newcastle, Del., aud unload- d some white hogs, which were great- y sought after on account of their size, ,nd were rapidly distributed over the ounty. They were what was then mown as the Cheshire hog, and de- cribed as being remarkably lenghty, ong legs, head large, oars long and anging, back much curved and nar- ow, sides flat and deep, color white. We have an account of one that veighed 1,410 pVunds gross and 1,215 )ounds net, and of a brood sow that veighed 1,300 pounds and afterwards aised a litter of four pigs. This in- usion of blood made a marked improvement in the size arid appearance of the log in the two counties of Pennsylvania. Following this, in 1818, was the mportation of a pair of very line white igs/rom England, the record of whicli we are all familiar with, and which at ho time were known in F.ngland as the Woburn breed. They were principally vhite, well formed, hardy, very prolific, lisposed to fatten, and have been mown to give twice the weight of oth- r hogs in a given period of time. The ntrocluetion of these fine pigs gave a new impulse to the improvement of wine in Chester county. These pigs >vere bred together and upon the larg- :st and best white sows of the county. Enterprising farmers, pleased with the 'esults of this cross, brought them up ,nd crossed again upon the best selec- ;ions, obtaining still further satisfac- iOry and profitable results. We have no authentic information of any addi- ional infusion of the foreign blood, lence the conclusion is legitimate that .he improvement of the breed in style rom quickness of maturity, etc., has )een produced from that time to this >y judicious selections and proper inat- ngs of the most desirable and best adapted individuals, from the massive "rained, heavy boned, slowly-developed log of thirty years ago, we find him taking kindly to his environments, and toda,y is the equal of any of the improved breeds in early maturity, while 10 leads all in profit when asked to market bountiful crops in protracted ceding, producing heavy weights. As ,o the purity of the breed it is only necessary to call attention to their prepotency, when crossed upon any other listinct breed. One dip only of Chester und one of the black family, mating ;hem either way will produce a result "n color, markings, and individual iharacteristics, ten to one in favor of the Chester. "All is not gold that jlitters." All Chesters are white and strictly white, but all white hogs are not Chesters. When we consider the temptation to fraud and imposition wrought about by the excessive demand for this breed a few years ago, the only surprise is that they had not fallen into iinal disrepute. In its purity, by a few areeders, it has overcome all obstacles and for several years past has been in good demand throughout the west, while in the east and north it is the prevailing breed. As to characteristics tie is in modern or present state as near the ideal hog as is known in America. In many particulars he partakes in common with other breeds of the swine family, but in certain features, his excellence is undisputed, and is justly the pride of his admirers. Docility of disposition is a crowning feature of the breed and as a result we find them superior grazers, easy feeders and the kindest matrons. Everyone appreciates the importance of this quality at farrowing time, when the necessities of the occasion require many kindly attentions from the attendant, The Chester is noted as a prolific breed' er, a kind mother and a generous suck' ler—«. happier trio of graces is hard to find, Touching their capacity as breed ere I wish to call special attention to the ability possessed by the sows to perform the act of parturition success fully and without assistance. This statement may seem marvelous to those who are under the necessity of resort ing to the use of instruments to assis the sow in labor, but in all the years o my experience as a breeder I have hac no case where the death of the sov could be attributed to trouble of tha kind. It is the uniform experience anc testimony of those handling this bree< of swine that no account whatever i taken of fatality at farrowing time. Again the Chester claims superiority as, a breed, in heart girth, depth bacl of sholders, which means vital force power to resist disease, and ability t contend successfully with all the chang ing elements and conditions of our cli mate. It has been claimed that he wa proof against all the fevers and distemp era that swine flesh is heir to, but tha is unwarrantable in the broadest sense Many instances of competitive test have been made between Chester anc other breeds, where all have been sub ject to disease in common—the Cheste coming out unscathed, while others la, strewn in many a field. Yet this onl w argues superiority of vital force, and i so far possessed of a certain immunit from disease. The unfounded prejv dice against a white hog, deserves moments notice. The Chester will in- ulge in and enjoy as much mud and niter, also endure as much exposure to nclement weather with as little detri- icnt as any other breed. Uniformly f clean habits, he will seek tho most ivorable location in his department or sleeping purposes. Thus, with harity for all,' 1 soclieit from the en- ghtened intelligence of the people, hat kindly consideration of the merits f this especial breed, which the common interests of a common cause, demand. Tho following are the points I aim at or my brooders: Ham, 12 points, with meat to hock oint; loin, 12 points, full and wide; tioulder, nine points, wide and deep: cart, nine points, full back of ahould- r; rib, 10 points, well sprung > at buck tid rounding; flank, eight points, deep nd full to leg; quarters, five points, >ng, with gentle curve to tail; legs. 10 ointo,, striiight, placed at proper place nder body; neck, five points, short nd deep: head, four points, broad, medium length, with medium ear; jaw, ve points, deep and short; foot, live oints, stand straight on feet, not back; nek, three, points, broad and Htraight; ill, two points, small and line; hair, ireo pointi), silky, wavy, or straight; olor, white, no dark- spots on skin. ~ truly, B.

A curious case of insanity was before the board last Saturday. James James of Wesley was brought over, as his family began to find that he might do some damage. He was all right except on religion, but showed his crazy spells as soon as he began to talk about that, and his case was continued till tomorrow for further evidence. In the meantime he was confined to the jail, but protested so vigorously that he was allowed to sleep in the sheriff's office. Monday as soon as the sheriff was out of the way he started out for Wesley by the first train, but word came over that he had arrived, and Marshal Dailey was sent for him at once. He was insane seven years ago, and seven years before that.but this year he is worse than ever before. Marshal Dailey brought James back Monday evening, but Tuesday morning he again got to the depot, and It took Sheriff Graham and Marshal Dailey both to secure him. In the struggle Graham got a bad kick in the stomach.
