Bowman, of Blue Sky Fame, Convicted at Clarion Last Week—The Swea City Poisoning. As it appears now Ruthven is the headquarters for a big gang of horse- thieves and ull-around sharks, who have gotten away with W. F. Carter's Cleveland Bay stallion. Some time ago Mr* Carter desired to dispose of his horse and put him into the hands of a local horse trader to sell. He traded with a Ruth von man, and Mr. Carter, thinking everything till right, completed the trade. Soon after, however, he suspected that everything was not all right and started after his man, but tho Ruthyon man got awny from him and got away from Ruthven with the horse and a lot of harness, etc. This occurred last week. Tho Free Press says there is an organized gang of thorn there with cappers in neighboring towns. Wo print its item as a warning to till who have dealings in horses: It IR ;.i pretty well understood fact that thot'o is a thoroughly organized band of thieves now operating in this portion of tho state and that about ton members of tho gang are locatud at Ruthven, while " pain" tiro located at Emmotsburg, Algona, Rolfo, Milford, Pomoroy and other points. It was two members of this gang who drove up to Irv. Underwood's store Sunday evening and one of them entered and stole four revolvers. It was this gang who stole a sot of harness from Holgen & .Totulahl, one from Englo Nelson, one from Oscar Bargstrotu, ono from Mr. Johnson, a single harness from Perry Alger and one or two other sots lust week. It is pretty well understood who tho parties are who belong, to this gang and it is only a matter of timo whom they will all 1)0 picked up. They are nearly all parties who have boon known to repeatedly violate tho latvs of Iowa, tho laws of decency; but there are a few in the gang whoso arrest at the proper time, will bo a great surprise to most of our people. Aside from thieving this gang is engaged in other frauds, the purchasing of property on "blue sky" paper, etc., bootlegging, the maintaining of nuisances, etc. The extreme boldness of some of their operations ol late has been sucli that thoir apprehension at a near date has become al most a certainty. Since this was written Mr. Carter has a clue by which he will probably gel his horse back again. Tho Jury Sold "Guilty." Bowman was convicted of forgery by the jury at Clarion last week and his attorneys at once made a motion in arrest of judgment. Tho trial lasted two days and was holly fought. Tho facts were that Bowman had sold a $125 note to the bank signed by J. C. Bode Bode swore ho never signed it. Bow man and Joe Crose swore he did. Bode'., wife swore that all he signed was a con tract. Other witnesses testified to tho writing, etc. Tho Clarion correspond ent to the State Register said of the trial: J, A. Bowman was last night founc guilty of forgery, he having forged the name of John C. Bode to a promissory noto for $125 and sold tho same to the Citizens' State bank of Goldflold. Th case was fought from start to finish b_ W. B. Quarton of Algona and Messrs Nagle & Birdsall of this place, whil the prosecution was conducted by ou efllcient county attorney, C. T. Peterson. The trial lasted two days. Th jury was out loss than two hours. Th verdict gives general satisfaction. The Clarion Monitor says: For sev oral months past a stranger namcc Bowman has been in jail at this plac charged with forging the name of J. C Bode of Norway township to a noto foi $125 payable at the Farmers' Supplj company of Algona. Bowman chiirni that Bode signed tho note, which tin latter emphatically denies. If tho sig nature is a forgery it is a remarkably clover piece of penmanship. Tho jur> last night brought in a verdict o guilty, but sentence has not yet beci passed. Tlio Swon City Trouble. The curious illness at Swea City which at first broke out in the Harri son family and was thought to have been produced by some lemonade lof standing in a tin pail, has spread unti now it amounts to an epidemic, Mr Harrison, tho first to bo seriously tak on, died last week Tuesday, but tin others of his family recovered and nisi the boarders at his house. A grea many are now sick and doctors from al the neighboring towns tire in demand The trouble is thought to bo in tho well water. Tlio Bancroft Rogisto says that IS are now down and tho township trustees are arranging fo having the water analyzed. NOT A FINANCIAL SUCCESS. Tlio Stnto Fuir Kims lluliliul — Ses- BloiiH wild "VVaUHWortli luivo IIzu-i AVorlt Collecting. J. W. Wadsworth ciuno from Do; Moines Saturday and S. S. Session: yesterday. The state fair was not wel attended and will lose about $10,000 This will put it behind some !?2"),0. Part of the failure is attributed tin "Last Days of Pompeii," which kup the crowds in the city, anil instead o helping, really hurt tho fair. Our Al gonians had tho department of privileges again and as tho various siclt shows did not take in any money,! was hard collecting from them. Tin Register says; Tho various concession aires have not done us profitable a busi ness as they hoped, and it has kept Col Sessions and his assistant, the alert Jo Wadsworth, busy to prevent some o thorn slipping away without leaving any of their gains with the fair management. In another item it adds: Tho privileges department nuiUos the most work for its superintendent of any at tho fair. Ho hue a motly army of men, women and children to keep track of. He has 0 see that they observe their contracts, >ay their dues to the fair, run their msiness " on the square," and in gen- ral see that they don't get away from the rules. Col. S. S. Sessions of Algona is in charge of this department for the third time. There are not as many shows, eating houses, stands, etc., as ormerly, but there has been less fric- .ion this year than before, and Col. Sessions will earn a large sum for the air. HOW JAKE VIEWS IT, Jnke Freeh of Hancroft Furnishes Tlio DCS Mollies Ne\vs With the Subject of ail .Editorial. Bancroft is alive politically. When some one up there don't make a stir the county is dead indeed. Jake Freeh is ,he latest one to add to the season's in- ierest. We do not know whether Jake combines at present his labor of promoting temperance sentiment and the circulation of the Courier at the same ime or not. But the fact that he tried ,his at ono time shows his capacity to lover all fields. Ho has written a let- .or to Col. Sessions, but addressed it to ;ho News and tho News gives it more serious consideration than anything Jtiko over wrote before has received. 3ut tho News article and the letter speak for themselves. Tho American voter, and especially the Iowa voter, indorsttinds the value of his ballot and <nows how to use it for tho furtherance of sound principles. The following let- iorsent to Col. Sessions, the republican lomineo for representative in Kossuth jounty, from the district secretary of ;he Good Templars for Northern district No. 3 of Iowa shows ono way the people are clinching tho question of prohibition: BANCROFT, Iowa, Aug. 81, 1803.— Hon. S. S. Sessions, Algona, Iowa.— Dear Sir: When you were in Bancroft, prior to tho republican county convention, I do not know but that I, in an Indirect manner promised you my 'vote for representative. Since reading tho local option (or whatever you call it) plank in tho republican state platform, 1 can not vote for you unless you pledge yourself unequivocally in favor of the present prohibitory law, and will pledge yourself not to vote for its repeal nor the placing of another law in its place. If you can make this pledge I. can glndly support you. If not I can not do so. This is no threat, but is simply an honest statement of my convictions, which I feel that I owe you. Respectfully, J. A. FRECH. Tho temperance voters of Kossuth should follow Mr. Freeh's example in large numbers. They should organize themselves into rescue leagues, all pledged to stand by tho present prohibitory law. They should give Col. Sessions the first chance, but if he does not declare against local option, they should vote for some other candidate. THE "CHlYAREE" DON'T GO Seven Young Men Know More Iowa Law than They Did, but Their Schooling: Came High. They Raised the Merry Dickens with John Faber, and Now Five of Them Languish in the Jug. Five of Prairie's stalwart citizens are testing the hospitality of the county in the cooler, and will make a ten days' visit. They are Albert Rahru, Peter Roskoph Jr., Frank Hummer, Philip immorfall, and Edward Immerfalt. Peter Lichteig and John Isenbarth thought they knew how they would like the visit and paid $15 each to get out of it. Justice Obed Robinson extended the official invitation to thesevento pay $10 each and spend ten days in jail; but County Attorney Raymond had it arranged so that by paying §525 eiich and costs tho jail part would not be enforced. The occasion of tho trouble was a "chivareo" tendered to John Ftt- bor. John, it seems, got married some weeks ago, and expecting tho customary visit got up a good supper. But no one came. Two weeks later the boys arrived when John hud nothing to offer. He told them how ho was fixed, and asked them to go awuy. Instead, however, they broke in his windows, shot into his house, sang songs that were not appropriate, and disturbed the peace generally. Then again, a week ago Sunday, they came for a second celebration, again shooting and breaking windows. This time John had them arrested and they were tried at Wesley last Saturday. They did not deny any of the charges, and had no lawyer, but came up fully fixed in the belief that " chivarees" were legally provided for and that they had committed no offense. 'Squire Raymond then read them the law and soon convinced them that because a man was married he was not an outlaw, and could not be hunted. As soon as they realized that they were in for it they decided to plead guilty and save costs, and 'Squire Robinson sentenced them as stated. It is probable that the "chivaree" will not be as popular in Prairie hereafter as it has been. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS.

ACCIDENTAL DEATHS. Caused by Carelessness. The majority of people die sooner than they should. Evidence of this fact is growing daily. Waring says: " .Disease is not n consequence of life; it is due to unnatural conditions of living— neglect, uliiwe, want." Dr. Stephen Smith, on the same subject, "Mania born to health and long life; disease is unnatural, death, except from old age, is accidental, and both are preventable by human agencies." This is almost invariably true of death resulting from heait disease. Careless over-exertion, intemperate use of tea, coilee, tobacco, alcoholic or other stimulants are generally the causes of this difficulty, and indifference to its progress results in sudden death, or long sickness ending in death. 15y the newspapers it can be seen that many prominent and hundreds of persons in private life die from heart I!:Bease every day. If you have any of the foil wing symptoms: shortness of breath, palpitation, iru-g- ular pulse, fainting anil smothering spells, pain in shoulder, side, or arm, swollen anklcn, etc., begin tieatment immediately for heart disease. If you delay, the consequences may be serious. For over 20 years Dr. Franklin Wiles, tho eminent specialist, lias made a profound study of heart disease, its causes and cmo, and many of the leading discoveries in thai direction are duo to him. His New Iltsirl Cure is absolutely the only reliable raneiiy for tho cure of heart disease, as is prov ii by thousands of testimonials from gnili-nil persons who have used it. Jttiuus A.
