The News finally says: " We want to establish the principle, so far as we may be able, that a Kossuth county man, who does not belong to Algona body and soul, may be elected to any of the important county offices." It is well known all over the county that Col. Spencer's whole business interests are at Sexton, and that his only property in Algona is his home. His time in the busy season is spent almost wholly at Sexton, Now that the contest is over THE UPPER DBS MOINES does not care to enter into its secret history any farther than to refute these specific charges, and to condemn the spirit which prompts any paper to allow its columns to be used to defame as good a man as Col. Spencer, fairly nominated by its own party, at a time when it is peculiarly damaging to him and when he is de- fenceless. This Sioux Indian method of warfare may do in some places but it is repugnant to the sense of fair play which prevails in Kossuth county, and it is particularly repugnant coming from the LuVerne News. THE MONTH'S MAGAZINES. Behold old friends and new—well wet together witbin tbe hospitable pages of the November St. Nicholas, as befits the season of Thanksgiving reunions an4 approaching and particularly the cpnjing of A most unfair and ungenerous attack was made upon Col, Spencer by the Lu- Verne News last week after the possi* bility of answering it had passed. Had it appeared as it should if its author believed his statements at the time of the convention, it could easily have been disposed of. But reviving the outworn roorback style of political campaigning the News waited until Mr. Spencer's friends could have no showing, which would have been bad enough if the News claimed to be a democratic paper opposed to the republican ticket. Whatever Algona's sins political may be it is to be said to her credit that this kind of campaigning has been outgrown up this way by all papers, and charges which we dare not make at the time of a convention, we do not ventilate when they cannot be met. The News' article starts out in the usual style. The LuVerne delegates, who, by the way, acquiesced in the unanimous nomination of Col. Spencer, plain way-fareing men, unaccustomed to the wiles of the county seat, were over-reached in the convention by Algona politicians " who have devoted their best ability to political jugglery for several years, until they nave reduced it almost, if not quite, to an exact science, and are very expert in producing results satisfactory to themselves." And Mr. Harrison haying delegates enough pledged to his nomination, failed to win because he sternly and virtuously refused to countenance "the trades and combines by which votes are frequently captured by designing tricksters." "It was," says the News, "a trading convention, and as Mr. Harrison stood aloof from all trades and combines ho was defeated by men whose pledges were violated for the anticipated advantage of a deal with Algona." And again it emphacizes this Roman virtue of Mr. Harrison as follows: "The nomination of Col. Spencer, an Algona man, who has enjoyed the emoluments of office for fifteen years, is secured by promises to do that for which 1. P. Harrison, an outside man, is defeated because he refused to doit." With this time honored preliminary picture of political virtue in unavailing contest with trickery and deceit, the News proceeds to specific charges against Col. Spencer. Its first is as follows: "Col. Spencer is a director in the First National bank of Algona, and his nomination was brought about by the schemes and trades of other Algona men, who are interested with him in that and other banking institutions of that town." It is enough to say of this that of the delegates to the convention, who were in any \vay_ connected with Algona banks, a majority voted for Mr. Harrison. Two banks were represented only in the First ward and that ward voted for everybody but Col. Spencer. Delegates connected with the third bank were from Col. Spencer's ward and instructed for him, but were well understood to favor Mr. Angus. These facts are known to all delegates in the convention. Again the News says: "The boast was openly made to Mr. Harrison and the LuVerne delegates before the convention that unless he (Harrison) would pledge himself to serve the interests of Algona to the exclusion of outside towns they could and would defeat him The Algona bosses defeated Harrison because he would not promise that their banks should be the exclusive repositories of the county money." This is a yarn out of whole cloth and not a syllable of evidence can be produced to support it. There is not a word of truth in it. Again the News says: "S. X, Way, a banker of Wesley, made a confession to a gentleman of LuVerne after the convention, which explains the cause of the defection in certain townships from Harrison's support *. ...Col. Spencer induced the Wesley bankers to get him the votes of their delegation on the promise that if elected they should be permitted to collect taxes for him in their locality." This is likewise wholly false, as it stands. Col. Spencer made no pledge to S. X. Way nor to any other delegate as to collecting taxes, nor was the matter mentioned. All the insinuations about pledges on the part of Col. Spencer to any bank or person as to what he would do in office are false. All he said to anyone was that he would do what was fair and right when elected, and when he became acquainted with age of St. Nicholas itself. For with thi number it enters Upon its twenty-first vol time, and might well be expected to make a speech for itself, had hot its pages so thoroughly spoken for it hi th6 past as tc guarantee, without extra words, fulfllmcn of expectation in the future.

Eliot Norton, Col. John Hay, George Kennnn, Mary Hallock Foote, Mrs. Schuyler van Rensselaer, Edith M. Thomas Chas. Egbert Craddock, and many others. As to the contents themselves, these include nothing more absorbing than the second or concluding part of the diary of the Admiral's Secretary describing Napoleon's Voyage to St. Helena. Emerson's name is attached to a recently discovered unpublished poem written to Lowell on his 40th birthday, which furnishes a moat fortunate preface to the last and final series of Lowell's essays to appear in the Century during the coming year, and the first one of which is printed in November. -i-»The November number of Romance marks the beginning of the twelfth volume, and the magazine celebrates tho occasion by an enlargement of one-fifth in its size, making it by far the largest periodical devoted to stories in the world. This sign of prosperity will be noted with satisfaction by its many admirers, who will find tho increase in quantity attended by that corresponding improvement in quality which marks the successive issues of this interesting magazine. The number opens with a Thanksgiving story by Mary E. Willdns; there is also a second Thanksgiving story by R. Li Ketchum. Among the many othor contributors are Alphonse Daudet, Julia Ditto Young, James Franklin Fitts, Eliza Lynn Linton, Julian Hawthorne, Albert Hardy, and Guy de Maupassant. Strength mid Hcnltli.

SKINNER BROS. Over State Bank, Algona. ACCIDENTAL DEATHS. Caused by Carelessness. The majority of people die sooner than they should. Evidence of this fiict is growing daily. Waring says: " JUiscase is not a consequence of life; it is due to unnatural conditions of living—neglect, abuse, want." Dr. iftephon Smith, on the same sulject, "Man is born to health and long life; disease is unnatural, deuih, except from old nge is iicuidentiil, and both art preventable by liitnmn agencies." Tins is almost invariably true of death resulting from heart dis- euso. Careless over-exertion, intemperate use of ten, coflee, tobacco, alcoholic or other fctiimilnnts are generally the enured of this difficulty, and indifference to its progress results in sudden death, or long sickness ending in death. Hy the newspapers it can be seen that many prominent and hundreds of persons in private life die from heart disease every day. If you have any of the following symptoms : shortness of breath, palpitation, irregular pulse, fainting and smothering spells, pain in shoulder, side, or arm, swollen ankles, etc., begin treatment immediately for heart disease. If you delay, the consequences may be serious. For over 20 years Dr. Franklin Miles, the eminent specialist, lias made a profound study of heart disease, its causes and cure, and many of the leading discoveries in thut direction are due to him. His New Heart Cure ia absolutely the only reliable remedy for the cure of heart disease, as is proved by thousands of testimonials from grateful persons who have used it. James A. Pain, editor of the Corry.Pa., Leader, states: "After an apparent recovery from three months of la grippe, I fell on the street unconscious from heart disease. In one month from that time I was unable to walk across my roam, and my pulse beat from 85 to 116 times a minute. I then used Dr. Miles' New Heart Cure, and at once became stronger. After using six bottles I was able to work OB usual and walk a mile every day, ray pulse ranging from 68 to 80. Dr. Milea' remedy i« not only a preventive but a cure."
