Charles Andrews, the oldest of the brothers and advance man for the company, was struck by a frieght train as he got off the passenger at Morrison, 111., last Friday and fdlled. He was well known In Algona, where he came several times with the company. Monday marked the close of another financial quarter with this paper and our patrons will be called on in duo season. In spite of hard times our merchants have boomed their business and all report a good trade. No matter what happens to the rest of the world hard times don't get much of a grip on Kossuth. Jos. Thompson now has a shoe with a four-inch sole and one leg is permanently that much shorter than the other. Dr. Fail-child, who was up to examine Mrs. Graham's injuries, examined him and tells him that he will always be a cripple. It is rather hard on him, but it is better than might have resulted from the smash-up. not heard how the present result, brought about, whether the schotf. .. -moved or whether Miss Bftldwifi thinks education and the smell of stale beer are compatible. Mrs. Sinn, who was sentenced to the penitentiary for six months for assist- tog her husband to burglarize the Northwestern safe at Lucerne last summer, returned to Algona with her nine months baby, and went to the poor house last week. A slight ailment attracted no attention, but Thursday morning it developed rapidly and she died. She was buried here in Algona and Mr. Benjamin has written to friends to know what disposition to make of the i child. When Mrs. Sinn went on the stand to testify she took all the blame on herself and her husband was willing to swear It on hei hoping that he might escape and she bear tTie punishment. Judge Thomas sized the situation up and gave him 18 months. Mrs. Sinn was probablya victim of his oyil association, and her sad death pays the penalty of his rascality. Such cases as this ra so a suspicion that a proper balance Is not always kept in this world.

The Methodist church is holding regular revival meetings every night now and is having a full attendance. Dun's commercial reporter was in town yesterday.

An Emmet county man was down last week with a property statement note he had traded a horse for. When he found out the character of the note he replevied his horse and took it home. The Kossuth county insurance company was not represented atDesMoines last week at the annual meeting. Interesting reports were read for the state showing that mutual farm insurance is successful. The cost for 1 8 state companies averaged is $1.99 each year on $1,000 insurance. This is very cheap insurance but for three years it stands for the expense with the mutuals. At the meeting of the library association, when they arranged for the supper of the 16th, the price was fixed at 15 cents, and it was so advertised. The afternoon of the supper some of the ladles of the association, not knowing to what extent the price had been circulated, changed it to 25 cents. Those who in their invitations had stated the lower price, felt that this explanation was due those invited.

The wedding of Miss Hattle Heckai and Eugene Schaffter at Eagle Grove last Thursday evening is described as a very pleasant affair. Presiding Elder Black officiated and many relatives and friends were present. The bride grew up in Algona, where she has a host of friends, and Mr. Schaffter is well known here through his frequent visits and his lectures. THE UPPER DBS MOINES regrets that it could not be represented but sends the heartiest of good wishes to the happy couple, who start out under such propitious auspices. The following signs of a hard winter are reported: Corn husks are thicker and have an orange tint instead of light lemon hue, the goose bone shows larger and whiter spots than usual, theThog's melt runs jagged instead of smooth, chipmunks and squirrels are laying in larger stores of nuts, partridges are lighting on barns instead of trees, ducks are flying in U shaped flocks instead of V shaped, and green frogs are changing their skins and seeking deep wells.
