He Now Languishes in the County Bastile, to Be Dealt with by the Next Grand Jury. County Attorney Raymond was called to LuVerne Friday to prosecute a clev er forger, who now is keeping company with the wolf scalp man in the county jail. Thursday afternoon he presented a check for $150 at Hanna's bank, signed by the grain buyer, W. L. Niver. B. W. Hanna paid it, but BUS pected something and went over to Nlver's to investigate. As soon as the forgery was known he telegraphed to the conductor of the train the man had gone on, and at Thor both got off and had a race for it about the depot, the conductor coming out ahead. The first search showed only $40 and it was supposed that an accomplice had the balance, but when Mr. Raymond ar rived he told the man that they should cut his clothes up to find the money il necessary, and he thereupon gave in and produced the balance. It had been carefully spread out under the lining of his coat all through the back. The man refused to say anything at all and the justice bound him over in $500 bonds and he was brought to Algona to await the grand jury. The forgery was very clever and the man is evidently an accomplished scalawag. He approached Mr. Niver first and under pretense of wanting his address asked him to sign a paper. Mr. Niver was cautious and took a rubber stamp and put his business card on the paper. Failing here the man evidently came to Algona, for the next thing was a letter to Mr. Niver signed J. L. Jones from Algona asking about prices 'or 500 bushels of wheat. Mr. Niver answered and signed his name. It is assumed that with this the man used iissue paper to trace the letters and so to reproduce them on the check. In any vent the forgery was perfect, for no one could detect it after seeing Mr. diver's real signature. The prompt detection by Mr. Hanna and the vigorous foot race of the railway conductor, who had hard work to catch the man, will undoubtedly result n landing a professional crook in the Den, where he belongs. Smothered By Gas. Fred. Miller of Plum Creek was called ,o Dubuque Saturday by a telegram announcing the death of a nephew by accident. At the time he did not know vhat had occurred, but the particulars have since appeared in the papers. It appears that Mr. Miller's brother, a vealthy Dubuquer, and his son had _ono to Chicago for the fair, and in lotne way failed to turn oil the gas. The Inter Ocean says: "John Miller and his son Lewis of Sast Dubuque, 111., came to see the air, and their neglect to see the gas vas properly turned off before retiring n-oved fatal Thursday night to the ion, 20 years old, and nearly so to the athor. The two Millers, in company with friends, reached the city Thurs- lay evening and engaged rooms at losing's boarding house at Blue Island and Oakley avenues. They retired to iheir rooms at an early hour and in the morning Harry Thill, one of the >arty, after finishing his breakfast went to the room occupied by the Millers to see why they had not appeared, ["he room was filled with gas escaping rom a half'open jet. Medical aid was it once summoned and it was found rhat the young man had been dead lomo time, but that the father was still ilive. The latter is gradually improv- ng and it is thought he will recover, ["he elder Miller is a farmer 50 years Id." THE MASKED BALL. The Cleverest and Jiest Acted Comedy Ever Given In Algona—Schilling's Minstrels Monday Evening, The most clever and amusing farce- Comedy ever given in Algona was " The Masked Ball," last Thursday evening, by Chas. Frohman's company. Al- hough "Gloriana" was as well re- ,eiyed in the cities last spring and as ivell spoken of, the humor of it was not as apparent. The dialect parts of the Russian count and of the cockney oachman in " Gloriana" were not learly so pleasing as the plain English if "The Masked Ball," and the eitua- ions were not so laughably absurd. Slothing more ridiculous could be con- :eived than the complications in this ilay, and it is little wonder that it was o phenominally successful on its first reduction in New York. The acting throughout was better ban any company has given here, un- ess it was the "Gloriana" company. very part was in good hands and the •junior of every situation was brought ut by the delicate and refined interpretation. The success of all plays of he kind depends on the ability of the actors, and the continuous laughter which began with the opening scene ,nd closed when the curtain was rung own on the last, spoke for the appreciation the audience had of the artistic work that was done. Miss Genevieve leynoldsas "Madame Poulard," and ?hadeus Shine as "Joseph Poulard," ss Marion Young as " Suzanne Blon- let," and Charles Coote as " Dr. Blondet," made a quartette that is not excelled anywhere. While the audience was large, it wag not at all such an audience as the pla and the prices warrajoted, A. bo«8S would ijpt m,or§ sured such a troupe in coming, and considering what shows have taken the people's money In years past, it is sing ular that a seat was left unsold. The total receipts would not pay what the opera house company guaranteed Janauschek, Ida Van Cortland, or any oi the best companies, to say nothing ol expenses. The patronage of the Heywood concert was equally unprofitable, and that was equally deserving. It would seem that the public would pre fer occasional entertainments of high merit at city prices, than to go oftener to inferior barn storming shows. But unless the patronage is very much more liberal than was extended Thursday evening, no first-class attractions can bo put in at the present scale of prices for seats. The Next Attraction. The Schilling minstrels come next Monday evening, Oct. 6. One of our citizens from Janesville, Wis., lately clipped the following notice from his Daily Recorder of that city: The days of a good minstrel show are not yet oyer, at least that was the unanimous verdict of the audience at the Myers grand last night when Chas. E. Shilling's company made their first appoarancp in Janosvillo. It is seldom that a minstrel company presents a programme in which every act is a good one, but that was what Schilling's minstrels did last night. The setting of part first being a representation of "King Solomon's Court," was very pretty. Part second opened with a piece entitled "Jerry Hart's Idea of Black Tragedy," by Messrs. Ward, Dickon, Hart, and Norris, which was quite laughable. By the way Jerry Hart is a great all-around minstrol man. He works in plenty of good local hits, and is as good as they make. Evans in his Indian club manipulation astonished everybody. He is cer- iainly a wonder. Harry Ward in his monologue act kept the audience in the aest of humor, and the Narragansett quartette in solos, ducts and quartettes were very pleasing in their specialty, "My Cousin's Return from Europe." They all have good voices. Joe Gomes, the second tenor, has almost a falsetto voice. Sharp and Flat gave thoir original sreation, "Trouble in the Music Store," .n which they introduced various musical instruments, and they could play on all of them. The feature of the evening was the Hobson family, consisting of a father and two sons. They Derformod some almost impossible feats ind they were applauded to the echo. It was one of the best acrobatic acts )ver seen in the city. Mr. Schilling ins a company that he need not fear to take into any city, as they are all right, Helps for Hard Times.
