Auditor Doxsee unearthed a pretty clever swindle last week, and as ft re' suit one Charles Baker is in jail await' ing the grand jury. It seems that some time ago Baker came in with seven wolf scalps for the bounty of $6 a head. He said he lived in the edge 'of Hurnboldt county but caught the wolves in Kossuth only some three weeks before. The first thing that excited Mr. Doxsee's suspicion was the dry and flue appearance of the skins. There was no smell about them and they looked as fine as though they had been tunned. He then asked Baker about his neighbors and he couldn't tell anything about them or about Bode, which is about whore he claimed to be. Mr. Doxsee, after he loft, wrote to the auditor of Humboldt county, sending Baker's description. He received in reply a. letter saying that such a man had brought in several scalps, but that he claimed to be a resident of Webster county. Mr. Doxsee then wrote to Fort Dodge and there Baker was caught. His arrest was ordered and Sheriff Graham went down and secured him Friday, finding some 40 odd scalps in his outfit. He was brought to Algona and waived examination before 'Squire Clarke. He says he can furnish bonds, as he is a member of a band of trappers over in Dakota. Baker had taken $28 here in Kossuth, and the following rep_ort from Fort Dodge to the State Register shows how systematically he was working this section: "FORT DODGE, Oct. 20.—Special: An organized conspiracy to swindle the various counties of this section through the wolf bounty has been unearthed here. Charles Baker, a typical looking trapper, was arrested here yesterday by the sheriff of this county while claiming the bounty on three wolf pelts. The bounty allowed is $5 on each skin, and Baker- had already touched the county treasury for $35 on seven skins. Since'Baker's last visit Auditor Cunningham had received a warning letter from Kossuth county describing the man and saying that he had been palming off old wolf skins there and in Humboldt county. He was first suspected through his ignorance of the geography of the region which was not in ac- lordance with his claims. Since his arrest here a message from Calhoun county shows that he had collected $40 from that county on the same game. The scheme is to kill the wolves in western Nebraska and ship them in here and claim the bounty. The skins are those of coyotes which do not inhabit these regions at all. There is no knowing yet how much Baker has worked his scheme, but he is only one of a gang 1 who are doing a bigbusiness." The theory is that the wolf scalps are taken over in the wolf-raising country and sent over here for the bounty. Some Bad Advertising. The Humboldt Republican this week comes out with the following: Some sharks from Algona have been gulling .he people over by Bode. The following was forwarded the Republican this week: Notice of notes secured by fraud and threats and no consideration: The public at large are hereby cautioned against purchasing any of the following notes: One given May 28,1802. to W. A. Bailey or order for §120 with eight per cent, interest, payable at Algona State bank one year after date. Since giving of said note the word order has been erased and bearer written above. That on the Oth day of October, 1893, one of Algona, Iowa, came to my jlaee with an officer and with threats of suit scai'ed me to signing two notes, viz: For $05 each, due May 6, '94, and Oct. 5, '94. The last two notes have the signatures of myself and wife, Mollie M. Espeland. As there has been no legal consideration for any of the described notes and they were scoured by fraud and threats-I hereby caution the public against purchasing the same as I shall not pay them. LAUS J. ESPELAXD. A Bode writer in tho Humboldt Re aublican says: It seems useless to warn "armers to avoid shtn-ks who travel around the country and by smooth talking get them to sign a contract ivhich turns up a note from $150 to $300. A sharper from Algona visited this section a few days ago and succeeded in swindling 1 two in this vicinity. The city of Algona ought to fire those swindlers from her midst, as they make headquarters there under the guise of ''The Farmers'Supply Co." and other names, THE NEWS FBOM WESLEY, Prairie Fire Docs a Good Deal of Damage—Other Notes. WESLEY, Oct. 24.—Monday afternoon after the west-bound freight left here fire was discovered about one-half mile west of town. The wind was blowing a .errible gale, and it was not long until .he fii'e was running over a section or more of ground taking everything bet "ore it. A. K. Kennedy and Charley Dorey had about 150 tons of hay burned Before it was checked. It is supposed a have started from a spark from the rain. Our depot agent, Ben Hopkins, sold in tickets last Sunday evening for Chicago to parties going to the fair. Among those who went are Mr. and Mrs. Blake, Mrs. Geo. B. Hall, Wm. "Shaffer, and Jos. Dinger, County Attorney Raymond and, Sulivan of Algona were in our town last Thursday attending the law suit of C. EJreen and Mr. Fuller, which was wrought from Algona to Wesley to be ;ried. They had a jury trial which wrought in a verdict of guilty, and Mr. Puller wns fined $10 ana posts. Mr. and Mrs. Peter Oleson of Forest ity visited over Sunday with Mrs- Gray, returning Monday.

Oleson's Mew house is tip and enclosed. It Is rumored that Christ, has some one in view who he intends to bring home to keep house for him as soon as his new house is completed. The painters are putting the finish* ing touches to Mr. Kunz' new house, while the carpenters are busy on Mr. Lichtag's new house on the south side. Edgar Butler of Algona was doing business in our town Tuesday. Edgar is always a welcome visitor. Mrs. Dr. McCormack received word one day last week that her mother, who lived at Fayette was not expected to live. Mrs. McCormack took the first train, but when she arrived she found her mother unconscious and she died irt a short time. The old lady had reached her 90th year and hnd been usually well up to the time of her death. F. M. Bacon is moving the Wesley creamery from Main street over to the north side of town. Mr. Duff of Britt is at work now putting down a well for them. He expects to have everything in readiness to begin making butter early in the spring. Jas. M. Hall of Manchester, N. H., arrived here Tuesday and is visiting his brother Geo. B Hall. Mr. Hall has been taking in the sights at the world's fair for a couple of weeks. This is his first trip west and he is highly pleased with the looks of this country. Rev. Eastman preached to a large congregation here last Sunday morning and evening. Rev. Eastman has been spending a couple of weeks or more visiting the world's fair, arriving home last Thursday morning and hasnow entered into the pastoral duties for another conference year, and we hope to see the coming year as successful as the past one has been and we have every reason to believe ho will do his part to make it so. Monday night was a kind of a reminder to the people here. It mudo them think of their coal bin. It is rumored that we are to have another drug store. No doubt another drug store would pay here, if properly run. WE are closing out our stock of clothing at big bargains. Geo. L. Galbraith & Co.

In these days of keen competition in every line, when the business man is compelled to bend his intellect and every energy to the success of his business; the clerk, bookkeeper, prcfessional man and laborer, to drive themselves at a terrific rate, there can be but one result—an explosion, which, if not resulting in immediate death, leaves them with shattered brains and bodies. They are running at too high pressure. The Htrain is too great. Something must and d(ie.i give wav. This is equally true of women. Though their sphere is more lin.itcd. they have their daily burdens, frets, and worries, und the results are the same as wi-li their htronger companions. This condition is growing worse every dny. The rapidity of its increase is awful lo contemplate. Our homes, hospitals, and insane asylums arc full of these unfortunates, and are being crowded still further. There is but one solution of the matter. Recognize the importance of ihe situation atonne, and take the necessary measures to overcome it. If you have fniling < memory, hot (lashes, dizziness, nervous or sick headache, biliousness, irritability, melancholy, sleeplessness, fainting, nervous dyspepsia, epilepsy, etc., know that any one of them in but a symptom of the calamity that may befall you. and even though you have used so- called remedies and treated with reputable physicians with little or no benefit, give Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine a trial. It is the only remedy that may be depended upon for nervous disorders. " Two years ago I used Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine with marked benefit, and later induced my eon, who bad been sick with catarrh of the bladder five years in the hands of our besf pliy- siclann, to try it together with Dr. Miles' Kervo and Llrer Pills. He was so wonderfully benefited that he In attending to business again, My wife also used Nervine with most excellent result p. All of u« together have not used more than fix bottles of Nervine. Several of our friends have «l*o used it, and are greatly improved,"—Louis Qlbb», Bucher & Glbbs Plow Co., Canton. Ohio.
