RICHMOND & CO. Robert O.faliyer Tells a Interviewer What lie Sunday. I loi^ to think of Sunday as the one da T/ h Sevetl which sft ould answer truly to its v name in the way we use it, if we are wise, for rest and recreation and for worship in some true and noble sense. But for rest first of all, so that when the day comes round those who have to work hard all the week should just sit still and rest themselves. This is the choicest boon Sunday can bring to the tired brain and hand. It is the decree of the first Christian emperor that the only work done on this day should be to free the slave; and when we take note how hushed and still the great toiling world is on Sunday, the good day, it makes the old decree take on new meanings and shine with a still fairer light. Sunday is especially the workingman's day. It's the one day in the seven when the house becomes his home and those that dwell there his choicest and best company. There may be scant time for the good home spirit to play among them on other days, but when Sunday comes the clouds lift with the burden of toil and care, the family life is made whole and wholesome once more and the recreation of the household comes. Luther, the prince of the reformation, says: "If weobserveSun- day the reason should be not because Moses said we must." Many great teachers and expounders of the Mosaic law would have nothing to do with the narrow and bigoted bondage into which their own race had fallen, but said the Sabbath should be a day of joy and delight. It should be a festival and not a fast or a time for " a cold bite" as we say. A day when people should wear their best robes and meet in each other's homes to break bread after the service. While so far from its being a day in which you must do no manner of work, they said it was far better that a man should work on the Sabbath, if he must, rather than depend on others for The fair this year ought to ex- cell all previous displays and we be- lieVe the farmers feel that they will re- cieve just treatment now and will turn in and make it a hummer.

ORIGINAL NOTICE. flN THE DISTRICT COURT' OF KOSSUTH County, Iowa.—Mrs, E; Fuller against J. Volney S wetting and The American Emigrant Cpmpany. H To said defendants: You are hereby noti- ifled that. a. petition of the plaintiff in the above lentitled action is now ll.lea in the omce of the f clerk of said district court, claiming of von •that she'is the absolute and unqualified owner |of the east half of Section No. Eleven, in Township No. Ninety-eight north of Range ,£0. Thirty-west of the 5th P. M., and asking jthttt her title thereto be quieted in her: and "unless you appear thereto and defend on or before noon of tho second day of the next May term of said district court,, to be begun and holden at the court house in Algona, in said Bounty,, on the Kith day of May, 1802, default •will be entered against you and judgment •eijdered thereon: ' ' ' •••••-. GEO. E. CLARKE, 4. ,.., .,, Plaintiff's Attorney. ORIGINAL NOTICE, his bread. This was the way the noblest and most literal thinkers held the Sabbath day,who still believed it' had been made sacred by Divine enactment; sacred to freedom, not to bondage, to rest and recreation and the worship of the Most High. So I stand by the churches and the worship to which Sunday opens the way and know of no recreation quite so sacred and true when I put rny heart into it, no matter whether one stands in the pulpit or sits in a. pew. But this bars out no love or loyalty to other recreations that can come and should come hand in hand with tho rest and worship on good Sunday. Rest is the prime factor in our Sunday and helps to put back the balance of tho power into the worker's own hands which during the six days has passed inlo the hammer, the engine, the types and the pen, so that the strong fibers of his nature are touched again as our wise woman says, as if there is good stuff in him; ambition changes once more into energy and the muscles move better when the rested spirit makes merry music. It was observed by a, truo traveler in Prance also some years ago now that a spirit of gloom had come over that sunny hearted race and a bitter temper, among the working men especially, while he traced the.root of it to the fact that they had almost lost track of their Sunday. I thought of this myself on the first 'Sunday I ever spent in Paris when I counted over 30 separate sort of workmen us hard at work between my hotel and the church as if it was a week day. And I thought it again six years after when the fair city was strewn with smoking ruins kindled by the Commune and again when I counted tho dead over there a short time ago. Those workmen had grown even more bitter and sullen at their tasks week day and Sunday, and then the time came when the furies broke loose. The terms of their lives gave them no fair and restful Sunday. And this is no doubt one reason why they were driven and are still driven to this savage and ruthless work. This question of Sabbath or Sunday is clearly a question then to be settled by each man for himself with no reference at all to what the priests and churches may say about Moses and the rest of the old trouble. And as Bishop Horseley said long ago: "This should bo done without any interference of any man with another or the authority of the state." It is ray day and yours, I say again, set apart by common consent for rest, for recreation and for worship, and in answer to a great general need of pur nature for these three blessed things. SOME REOBNT LEflAL DECISIONS. .T. W. Doxsee In the Montlcello Express l>lgests L,ate Findings of Iowa's Supreme Court. Insurance —Step-son a Relative— Lawrence E. Maulsby was a member of the A. O. U. W. and held a -certificate of insurance payable to his brothel 1 , E. P. Maulsby. Afterwards the insured had the certificate changed so that the, insurance would be payable to his stepson. The law provides that " no corporation or association, organized or operating under this act, shall issue any certificate of membership * * unless the beneficiary under said certificate shall be the husband, wife, relative, legal representative, heir or legatee of such insured members." The brother opposed thesayment of the insurance to thernombt^'s step-son, claiming that he was in no sense a relative and that ho was excluded by the provision of the law. The step-son won in the court below, and also in the supreme court, where it was declared that "a step-son is a relative by affinity, and the'relationship continues after the death of the wife on whom the relationship depends." Minor May Have Two Gmrdians— In the case of Lawrence vs. Thomas, which was appealed from the district court of Franklin county, it was decided for the first time in Iowa that a FOR the general (quadrienninl) conference of the M. E. church, to be held at Omaha., May 1 to 30, excursion tickets will be sold over the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway at one fare one way for the round trip. For the Iowa state encampment, G. A. R., to be held at Ottutnwa, May 10 to 12, the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway company will sell excursion tickets at Algona for $6.28 for the round trip.—It4 At Geo. E.

In this case there was a contest between two applicants as to which should be guardian of the person and property of a little girl three years old, who had no parents. The court,- while it does not sanction the general practice, yet says that there is general authority to appoint one guardian who shall care for the minor's property and another who shall have the custody and control of the minor. City' Waterworks—Vote Required— During the year 1889 it was proposed to put a system of waterworks in the town of Bloomfield. The mayor issued his proclamation and n vote was had. An old "moss back," who was afraid of increased taxation, attempted to enjoin the collection of the waterworks tax upon several technicalities, the principal one of which was that the proposition to erect the waterworks did not carry " by a majority of the votes of tho town." Tho case went to the supreme court and there it was decided last term that though tho statute says that the approval must be by a " majority of the votes of the town," yet it is only by the vote cast that the result is to be determined. If a majority of those voting were in favor of the proposition that was sufficient. The voters of the town contemplated were those who went to the polls at the election and deposited their ballots. County Not Liable For Defective Jail The plaintiff in this case was charged with forgery and thrown into the Polk county jail where he remained four months, when the indictment was dismissed by the prosecuting attorney. He then commenced a suit against the county for $25,000 damages to his health caused by the filthy and unventilated condition of the jail. A demurrer to the petition was sustained and on appeal to the supreme court the ruling of the district court was affirmed, where it was asserted that the county was not liable for the negligence of its officers in not providing a proper jail. The Officials Will Now Decide What Is Tinder trs-Wm. Ward's Chance. A geological survey was ordered by the legislature which shall be under the direction of the geological board, consisting of; the governor, state auditor and the presidents of the agricultural college, the state university and the Iowa Academy of Sciences.

There are men and women who get in tho habit of scolding about the house of scolding about their business and looking on the blue side, and after a while they become hopeless and nothing in this world looks well to them or can bo done to suit them, The same mood prevails iu politics and Gen.

Carroll Herald: Both papers at Nevada have discarded the " home print" and gone baol? to " patent' insides." The " home print" is a delusion, as many publishers are finding out. Whether one uses home print or " patents," the miscellaneous part of the paper is made up of stereotype plates. In the former case the publishers have but little control over the "plates" furnished. But ready prints are gotten up under the supervision of an editor who must compete for his business and who has the reputation of his house to sustain. Publishers are finding out that a man who makes a business of selecting matter for " patents" is better qualified to get up the miscellaneous portion of the paper than the country editor who must take the plates as he gets them, It Is a Business Maxim. Tho loading industries of the world bear strong testimony to the" truthfulness of the assertion that advertising pays.
