Now is the time to buy your fence posts, before spring's work commences and while the roads are good. We are determined to do business this summer, and 't You Forget It, The Express says that when Paul Alexander Johnstone came to Monticello to give an exhibiton of mind reading he should have been accompanied by two valises, containing his clothing and stage apparel, which had been checked at Cedar Rapids and which had strayed over to Oxford Junction, where they were allowed to remain out all night in a soaking rain. On account of this blunder, which deprived him of his claw-hammer coat during the evening's performance, much to 'tho distress of his mind, the pale-faced mind render has lodged a claim against the C., M. & St. P. Rail-, way company for $2,500. In his loiter to the company ho said that his is such a sensitive organism that unless he operates in his dross suit, which ho is accustomed to wearing, ho must necessarily overtax himself. Ho says that tho embarrassment of appearing before his Moutidello audience was so intense and realistic that ho would not again go through tho tortures of that evening, incident upon the loss of his bug- gnge, for $5,000. The company hns not yet paid P. Alexander Johnstone's modest demands. But ho probably knows whether its officers have it in mind to do so. It doesn't require a mind reader to guess at that. W. B. QUARTON, ATTORNEY AT LAW. Over Kossuth County bank, Algona, Iowa. Just give the boys a chance. You will enjoy getting up in the morning if you have some of our dry pine slabs to start the fire with. Gov. Boies received a request last week for tho state militia to turn out and protect a Free Methodist revival at Corning. The revival had been running to such extremes that public sentiment demanded its suppression, and a lot of toughs attacked tho meeting and the people. Gov. Boies was assured that the authorities were equal to the emergency, and state troups will not be called out. ______ At the Corro Gordo county institute O. T. Denison figured out the comparative value of foods, based upon their constituents, as follows: "When milk sells nt ?1 per hundred pounds it is as cheap a food as round steak at 21 cents a pound, smoked ham at 6i cents, codfish at one cent, oysters at 1-J- cents per quart, or counting oysters at 40 cents a quart milk is worth 54 cents a quart. succeed Horace Boies in '93. Meeting our neighbor yesterday, a Republican representative jocularly hailed him thus: "Colonel thou art; governor thou shalt bo—if the Tribune speaks the truth." "But it doesn't," responded the colonel. "When I quit tho law practice for the governorship and $3,000 a year, it will bo when I'm a big* ger fool than I am now." Cedar Rapids has a Y. M. C.

Agent for the celebrated • WILBUR'S SEED MEAU *«d WJLBUIVS SURE 'HEATE CURE another novel which will appear within a month. It is entitled "The Great Booboo," and critics who have seen the advance sheets are of the opinion that it will be as much of a hit as "Flaws by a Lawyer," written by tho same author. About) twenty members of the Iowa legislature, comprising the house and senate committees on Columbian exposition, went to Chicago to examine the grounds, buildings, und general plan of the fair- preparatory to making their state appropriation. C. W. Budd of Des Moines is now the champion wing shot of this country. Last week he defeated Fulford, the former champion, in Chicago on a score of 93 to 81 the first day, The second day when the score reached 140 to 121 Fulford gave it up. The Chicago Herald says: " Budd shot in championship form and grassed his last 45 birds without a miss. Four of the last five birds were killed with the first barrel, but the second barrel was largely responsible for the total deadly executions. Neither of the shooters used the same barrel for safety. Both shot slowly, relying upon the second barrel to finish the birds. The pigeons, a selected lot, were fast flyers and difficult to kill. Budd made some marvelous kills of towering drivers with his second barrel. His was, in fact, the best score ever made on the grounds." The Iowa house passed the county superintendent bill. The measure provides that no person shall °bo eligible who does not possess a state certificate or a life diploma from the state board of examiners, or who has not received the diploma of a university, college or high school approved by the state board of examiners, or who has not had 27 months' experience inthepublicschools of Iowa. Should the bill become a law its effect will be to render some of the present county superintendents ineligible for re-election. Dolliver spoke at the Robert Emmet celebration last week in New York. His oration in full was given by the Register, Senator Funk told the Cedar Rapids Republican that Senator Gatoh, the author of the local option bill, is an honest man and a good Methodist. Senator Funk also says that Gatch is thoroughly conscientious, and that those who differ with him roapect tho purity of his motive and the uprightness of his purpose. The Cedar Rapids Republican says; Col. Clms. A. Clarke of Cedar Rapids hits beeu uouiiuftt;ed by an auonyniou.a democrat in. $^$h,io,ago. Tribune p There in a groat oxortus of Illinois farmers into Iowa just now, creating u largo demand for Iowa hinds. Tho Bloomington Pantograph of March 1 mentions the pausago through that city on Monday of 20 carlonds of immigrants and their baggsgo adding: "There were on tho train 112 adults and 82 children. Tho train was made up of one carload from Pnxton, one from Elliot, four from Gibson, 10 from Saybrook, two from Arrowsmit, four from Ellsworth, and one from Carlock. Tho train consisted of 09 cars after leaving Pooria, Moat of those emigrants purchased farms in Iowa last fall. Among the number wivs Mr. Wm..Cody of Ellsworth and his family which consisted of 14 children the oldest being 17 years of age. The train crow were, conductor, Mr. J. Kuneman; brakomen, Messrs. C. H. Montague and C. C. Thompson. The most of these emigrants go to central Iowa, Boono and Hardin counties, except Messrs. M. English and Clyde Howe, from Saybrook, who go to Lu- Verne, Minn." In its local columns, the Pautagraph gives the following item: "Mr. Alonzo Copeland shipped a carload of goods to Des Moines, where he bought u farm and expects to make his future home. Mr. William Brower accompanied him. Messrs. C. W. Ewing and Matt. Doody occupy the house Mr. Copeland left." The entries for the September meeting of the Mason City Turf club have closed with a complete entry of 500 horses. Tho total amounts of purses and stakes are $30,000, aside from a number of specials with liberal purses. Tho races give every indication of being the best ever held in the state. The "innocent purchaser" bill which Mr. Kelley has introduced in tho Iowa senate is a copy of the Missouri law on the same subject. It provides that all notes taken by any peddler for patent rights, patent medicines, lightning rods, etc., and notes taken by insurance agents for premiums on any policy of insurance, shall contain the statement . that the notes wore given for that purpose, and anyone receiving a note for the purchase of any such wares without containing such statement shall be deemed guilty of a felony, A peculiar case of love of litigation is presented in the appeal from action of the board of equalisation of Waterman township, in O'Brien county, in refusing to change the assessment of J. C. Jenkins. Jenkins asks for tho lowering of tho assessed valuation of his stock to the amount of about $7. Should his request be granted he would be saved taxes to about tho amount of 27 cents, but still for the sake'of that much money and to satisfy his sense of "justice" lie appeals from the court below, pays his attorney, and puts in a week or more of his and his neighbors time. G. M. Taggart of Odobolt sent the Russian suil'erors 'a draft of $100 through Count Tolstoi, and last week received the following letter dated at ' Moscow: Honored Sir: Allow me to express my most sincere gratitude for your generous contribution to our relief fund. I am happy to bo able to assure you and your friends that tho sum of thirteen roubles is more than sufficient to provide subsistence until next harvest; for although victuals and fuel have greatly risen in price, we have at this time of 'the your only to provide nourishment for tho next six months. I feel that all I could say to express my deop-folt gratitude to you and your countrymen is nothing hi comparison to the intense satisfaction you would feel at tho sight of tho effectual r01iof which offerings such op yours bring with thorn.
