The Announcement Will Be a Shock to Those Who Knew Him Best- Other Mortuary Matters. O. E. Palmer died at 7:30 o'clock lust evening 1 . A week ago he complained of not feeling well, and Thursday remained at home, soon coming down with a typhoid attack. His symptoms became dangerous at once, and Sunday but little hope was felt for his recovery. Telegrams were sent for his sons, Lorin and Will., and the former is expected tonight. Ho is in Texas. But Will is in Mexico and it is unlikely that he can be reached. Mr. Palmer has been a prominent citizen of Algona many years. He came in 1869 as the general agent of the McGregor & Missouri River Construction company, which built the Milwaukee road from Calmer west. In 1871 he took the office room in the Kossuth County State bank building ho has since occupied. Until 1880, when the Milwaukee company took the road, ho traveled extensively along the line in the Black Hills and through Dakota. Under Milwaukee management he was local agent at Algona and superintended the sale of the remaining railroad lands in the county. He was. born in Connecticut in 1825, was brought up to the tanning trade, and owned a tannery himself in early years. He took an interest in local politics and was a member of the Connecticut legislature. He has been an active member of the Masonic order all his life. In 1848 he was married to Abby A. Cowdrey and five children were born, all of whom are living but Fred. Funeral of Emma Zahltou. The funeral of Emma Zahlten was held at the home last Thursday. Rev. Davidson made a few brief remarks, und the King's Daughters, a society she was active in, conducted the exercises. The remains were brought to the cemetery, followed by one of the largest processions that has ever entered the grounds, and were interred with simple ceremonies. She was boi-n Jan. 9,1803, and was therefore a little over 30 years of age. She was reared in the county, was active in church work, and a musician of more than usual promise. She spent some time in DesMoines and other cities perfecting herself in her chosen work, but consumption began its ravages and she was compelled to gradually give up. She was a most estimable woman in every way, and hoi- death is untimely. Belonging to the little band of those who were born in the pioneer period of Kossuth's history, her death is a great loss to them. children to educate and care for, all too young to help themselves, and the full responsibility of managing the farm upon her hands, her task was indeed a heavy one. How bravely and successful she bore the burdens that were placed upon her, all who have known her or her children, are aware. During the long years of work and worry, she never wavered in her endeavor or murmured at any of the many trials she was called upon to bear. Truly hers was a useful life, a noble life, teaching its lesson of Christian fortitude, a life that will surely meet with its reward beyond the portals of the graye. The funeral services were held at Corpus Christi church Saturday morning at 10 o'clock. THE WEEK'S IOWA NEWS. Prank Jackson, Walt Butler, and Mary Lease all spoke at Onawa on Saturday. The LeMars polo team has gone to St. Louis for a mutch game. LoMars has one of the few polo clubs in this country. Polo is shinny played on horseback. The state university football team will play in Denver, Kansas City, Omaha, Minneapolis, Chicago, Cedar Rapids, Davenport, and Grinnell this season. At Waterloo a farmer exploded a dynamite cartridge in the bottom of his well. Shortly after he went down to investigate and was overcome by gas. His son went to help him and was also caught. Both were dead when found. Mrs. W. H. Robb, wife of a well- known populist politician and editor, poured a pitcher of gasoline, which she mistook for water, into a hot tea kettle lately. The flames caught her clothing and before they were extinguished she was injured so badly that death resulted. The Sioux City Journal says: "The citizens of-Greene county will, at the coming election, vote on the proposition to establish a county high school at Scranton. The laws of Iowa provide for the establishment of such schools, and a quarter of a century ago the proposition met with considerable favor." Kossuth once talked of this but the law is not arranged to make the scheme practicable. _Not enough money can bo had at one time. Boy Lost. !

Carlon died about four months ago she left a little baby, which has been sickly ever since and which died Saturday on the farm, in the south part of the county. Tho funeral was held Sunday, Rev. Davidson attending, and the remains were buried in the Irvington cemetery. Mrs. Dan v Palmer. Saturday a funeral. procession came from Whittemore bearing the remains of Mrs. Dan. Palmer to the Algona cemetery. Mrs. Palmer grew up in Algona, and was tho sister of Alf. and Roe Hall. Her death was caused by typhoid fever, The Home as n Clvillzor. The Philadelphia Times, commenting on the home us a civilizor, says: "Tho peaceful attitude of workingmen in Philadelphia, Cincinnati, and St. Louis, as compared with the same class in Chicago, New York, and Denver, is a sound and practical argument in favor of owning a home. With no property rights and privileges to worry about, the great mass of humanity existing in rented quarters, like the tenement system, have nothing at stake when they engage in riots or kindred demonstrations. Scenes similar to those recently witnessed in New York und Chicago could not occur or would be well nigh impossible in this city." The building and loan associations are largely responsible for this state of affairs. The workingmen as stockholders are capitalists, and likely to become as much alarmed over their investments as the greater capitalists over their millions. Such a condition prevents runs on banks, begets local pride, builds up the municipal backbone and strengthens the man, the family and the nation. The man who owns his home is the best sort of a citizen. This all comes from the fact that in Philadelphia there are more than 450 building and loan associations, and over 121,000 citizens who own land. TAKE your shillings to the Opera House Grocery.
