THE GRAHAM CASE ENDED A Settlement Reached Last Week, Apparently Satisfactory to All Parties Concerned, The Proposed Mill Crossing Under Investigation—The Bowman Case— Gertnania Bootleggers. Judge Cook of Webster City, Dr. Fftirchlld of Cedar Rapids, and W. H. Lyford, general counsel for the Chicago & Eastern Illinois railway, were in Algona last week to make arrangements for settling the case brought by Mrs. J. A. Graham for the injuries she r& ceived in Chicago. Mr. and Mrs. Graham were down from Bancroft and Dr. Fairchild, who Is an expert in injury cases, made a careful examination of her wounds, and on his report Mr. Lyford and Judge Cook came to an agreement with Mr. Graham and Geo. E. Clarke, who represented him. The exact amount paid by the company is not made public as there are a number of other cases yet to be settled arising out of the same accident. But the sum is well up, being several thousand dollars. Dr. Fail-child's examination showed that Mrs. Graham's main injuries are over with except, of course, the scars which will always remain. But he thinks that some of the nerves have been compressed in one scar, which has grown fast to the skull and that they will have to be released by a surgical operation before the pain entirely departs. The injuries were caused by neglect on the part of the company in running its train too fast at the 49th street crossing in Chicago. As brakes were put on to stop at the station there the train being on a reverse curve, several cars were thrown off and two passen- ers were killed and many besides Mrs. traham injured. When Mr. Clarke first took the case the company was very independent as it thought the suit would have to be brought in Chi cago, it having no line in Iowa. But Mr. Clarke got around this by attaching money due this company by Iowa companies connecting with it, and so caught its property in Iowa and got the case into courts near at home. The ase was to have been tried at Fort Dodge this month. The Now Mill lloncl Crossing. Roswell Miller, president of the Milwaukee road, A. J. Earling, general manager, D. R. Williams, assistant •eneral superintendent, and C. A. Cosgrave, superintendent, passed through Algona last week on a special, and by appointment met Geo. E. Clarke to examine the proposed new road at the foot of Thorington street under the brack. Their car came from the west and they spent some time discussing the project, and as a result agreed to the plan proposed, which is that they shall put in a bridge and contribute i>100 towards excavating the dirt. President Miller authorized Mr. Clarke to close such an agreement with the Ity council. The council has taken no action as yet but if it agrees to this plan the work will begin at once probably. Mayor Call has interested himself in the plan believing that it is the most feasible for surmounting the difficulty. Surveyor Tellier's estimates call for the removal of about 3,000 yards of dirt. The grade will be considerable less than the one now on the approach to the track, and will be some less than at the steepest part of the hill this side of the track. The whole expense is estimated at $300, of which the county will bear part. The matter will/be considered by the council and action taken soon, The Bowman Forgery Aiitiln. W. B. Quarton went to Clarion Monday to defend Bowman, who was convicted of forgery some weeks ago, in a new trial. .As soon as the verdict was rendered a motion was made in arrest of judgment, but the judge overruled the motion and gave a new trial on his own motion. Mr. Birdsall is with Mr. Quarton for the defence. J. R, Jones went as a witness with Mr. Quarton,' The facts in the case were brought out in the first trial. They are that Bowman sold a note signed by a man vho swears that he did not sign it. 3owman and Joe Grose both swear that 10 did. His wife says he signed a con- ;ract but did not sign a note. The ,heory is that the man thought he was signing a contract but in fact signed the note. This relieves Bowman from the charge of forgery. Tile Gerinunla lioot Marshal Dailey went to Germania Thursday and captured four of the five who were indicted by the last grand ury for selling liquor contrary to law. The ones caught were Mike O'Rourke, ?. Pinnegan, Harry Van Havlin, and has. Knapp. They gave bonds of $800 sach ana were not brought to jail. Tom Kelley was the fifth and bonds were being made for him when he made a quiet retreat and was out of the room before he could be caught. He is )he ringleader of the railroad graders, who tried to vote last fall, and has eally made his residence here. But now he will doubtless settle elsewhere. The evidence against the men is strong and they are likely to be convicted at ,he coming term of court. Liquor leddlars have a rough road in Kossuth. Yesterday Kelley gave himself up and •ave bonds.

We are naturally given to condemn and despise the idea of remaining in bed when our health is good and all our vi tal forces in fair working order. Apart from the matter of our nightly rest, we rarely think of "a day in bed" either as preservative of health or conducive to longevity. Yet I am convinced there is much to be said in favor of "a day in bed" now and then, as an aid to health in the middle aged and as a measure tending to prolong life in the old. In bed the whole muscular system is at ease and the wear and tear of the body is reduced to a minimum. The processes of getting rid of waste matters are in abeyance; there is less waste to get rid of, and lungs, skin and kidneys have a measure of comparative repose. The nervous system, above all, is soothed and comforted by the "day in bod." Anxieties and worries disappear after the rest, and the individual returns to the workaday world refreshed and renovated, physically and mentally, in a degree such as the actions of no medicines could have accomplished. In a word, the person who enjoys "a day in bed" is in the position of an engine whose fires are banked down and whose energies are recruiting for the renewal of the work of tomorrow.—Health Bulletin. Cost of Mississippi Steamboats. Pictures of the packets scarcely show how unlike *ur boats these are, the difference being in the methods of workmanship. Each story is built merely of sheathing, and in the best boats the doors and fanlights are hung on without frames around them—all loose and thin, as if they never encountered cold weather or bad storms. All the boats that I saw are as nearly alike in all respects as if one man had built them. I was told that the great packets cost only $70,000 to $100,000, so that the mere engine in a first class Atlantic coast, river or sound boat is seen to be of more value than one of these huge packets, and a prime reason for the difference in construction suggests itself. But I do not mean to criticise, for these great, comfortable vessels serve their purpose where ours could not be used at all, and are altogether so useful and appropriate us well as picturesque and attractive to an eastern man that there is not room in my mind for aught than praise of them.—Julian Ralph in Harper's. Electrically Guarded. Many visitors to the Metropolitan Museum of Art wonder at the apparent absence of guard against theft and think how easy it would be to rifle almost any of the cases of their valuable contents. Each of these cases is guarded, however, by a small wire which connects with the office and also with a large gong in the basement. Each of the cases in the room, which contains the Moses-Lazarus collection of porcelain, miniatures and other valuable objects is connected with these electrical wires, so that if any person should attempt to force open a lid the signal would be given at once. The same arrangement is made for the safety of most of the other cases.—New York Herald. Cooper FUEOI Another carload of the celebrated Cooper Wagons has just been received at the Wigwam.
