A Disgraceful Row Accompanied "With Spicy Insinuations—Too Much Liquor Afloat. We dislike very much to bo compelled to chronicle disgraceful brawls and fights. Last Thursday seemed to be a day of trouble. From what we are able to learn of the matter a person who calls himself a man and who lives in a home with glass sides and glass shingles, threw a good sized stone into the-home of a not very strong minded cripple. And the rock thrown back was so offensive and so unlocked for that Mr. A thought his reputation could be more injured and brute strength was resorted to. But as we understand the matter, Mr. A did not gain any point and the fight was decided a draw. No arrests have been made as yet. This is not the first time Mr. A has been a party to a street scene and for his family's sake we do not give his name. We think we are safe to say that his family have the sympathy of the public. It is reported that a petition will be circulated asking the court to revoke the permits of the drug stores. Then perhaps the liquor traffic can be local- HE COMMITTED SUICIDE! The Cause and Its Lesson. Why did he commit suicide ? Oh ! for the same reason that thousands of others are on the verge of the same sin, or in immediate danger of insanity, paralysis, idiocy, or some other equally unfortunate result of any nervous affection. He knew he waa afflicted with a nervous disorder, but was careless, apparently indifferent to the outcome ; or he m ty have lessened his chances for recovery by treating with physicians who had little or no knowledge of such affections, or by deluging himself with worthless so-called remedies. His case was a sad one, but no worse than that of any other nervous sufferer, who has nervous or sick headache, biliousness, dizziness, irritability, melancholy, failing memory, hot flashes, fainting, sleeplessness, nervous dyspepsia, sexual debility, epilepsy, etc. The sume or similar consequences are likely to result to any ona who has any of these advance symptoms of an awful end. Do not hesitate in getting rid of them by intelligent treatment. Dr, Franklin Miles, the celebrated specialist, has studied nervous diseases over 20 years, and has discovered the only reliable remedy for them. Thousands of voluntary testimonials prove the virtues of Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine. Aloaro Barker, of Clinton, N. Y., writes; "I was so afflicted with extreme nervousness that I was on the verge of Insanity. My bands trembled so that I could scarcely feed nmelf. I used twelve bottles of B*. Miles' Bestoratlve Nervine, and was cured. It is with pleasure I recommend thlf wonderful remedy for nervous troubles." ''I bod been o great sufferer from chronic he»d»cbe until I began, about four months ago, to use PJT. Miles' Bestorative Nervine and Pills, since wWcn tjnw J nave not bad a, headache.

If the drug stores are selling the liquor that is used here, the permits should be revoked. And if they do not sell it they should not be blamed. Rev. Daniel Williams spent last week in Howard county, visiting his brother and some other relatives. His brother is a member of the coming legislature. C. E. Mallory is busy settling up the business of the Bancroft tea and spice company. Mr. Mallory is of the opinion that Buffalo Center is the coming town of Winnebago county. W. W. Alcorn will remove his family to town in the near future and will occupy the Howe residence on Portland avenue, south. Mr. Alcorn will give his hardware business his personal attention in the' future. Wm. Ditz spent most of his time in Armstrong last week, John Gallion coming down here and attending the business. Mr. Ditz says the Armstrong house is paying him well. Ernest Fuller writes from California that they arrived there safely and that E. L. Ward, our former townsman who went there about one year ago, is not enjoying very good health.

Yesterday afternoon the Rutherford house closed its doors to the traveling public, and a new hotel era was ushered in. At the same time all the 'busses, 'bus horses, etc., became the property of A. Rutherford Jr., and the free 'bus system came to an end. ffhe change primarily is due to the poor health of Mr. Rutherford, who has been failing badly since May, and who must seek a change from his present life. His son did not wish to continue the business without him, and as the family had always understood that they should quit the business at some time, it was decided toclosenow. This shuts Algona's second oldest hotel. As the Harrison house it was known for years to all, and the old building was incorporated in the new when Mr. Rutherford built in 1884. He bought the old hotel of Mrs. Harrison in 1881 and came to Algona. Mr. Rutherford has been a well-known and popular landlord, his house has been scrupulously neat and tidy and his table well supplied. He numbers his friends by scores both among the traveling public and the people of the county and all will unite in wishing him a return of good health. The change in the 'bus system puts the whole business into Gillie Rutherford's hands, and that is sufficient guarantee that it will be fairly and satisfactorily managed, The free 'bus has always been a heavy drag on our hotels and now that it departs and the business is confined to two houses the chance is open to have Algona come to the front as a hotel town. Gillie takes the 'bus and wagonnette of theTennant house and the Thorington wagonnette with teams and harness. He will have the mail and Adams express to carry and with the regular trade will have a good business. We hope that this will forever end the free 'bus in Algona. The Poetry of Shopping. The poetry of shopping conies in with those shoppers who are starved, for excitement, variety and beauty at home, It is not lawful; they have no right to do it; but they have no society to satisfy a hunger for the beautiful with jewels and fine dresses on others if not on themselves. They cannot afford the theaters; they go to the shops. They look at the laces and long; they go to the embroidery counters and fancy; they educate themselves in the matter of india shawls; they seek the eilkropm, brilliant with gas lights and electric lights, and look at brocades fit for the court of a princess, at silks whose flamboyant scarlets burn in the illumination, whose tender blue Is the blue of spring skies half robbed of rain, whose green Is the breaking wave of theeea, Whose violet is the hue of mountains far away in autumn mists, and they picture themselves 97 those they Jove robed and radiant in these tissues. And if the poor shopman is weary when they go away, they themselves are refreshed for a long Beajsonpf further denM &s4 renuncia- ttoa.-Harpfir' fl Bazar. For Beauty and Utility There is nothing in the city that excels those elegant goods just received by W. F. .Carter. They include, among the thousand and one beautiful things — China of every description. You should see those Bread and Butter Plates, so nice and yet so cheap; after-dinner coffee cups and saucers, delecate but just the correct thing; wine sets, water sets, platters, the finest and handsomest fruit dishes you ever saw; glassware in endless styles; lamps in hanging, standard, student, and all other patterns. I want you to look at these goods—they will sell themselves—they are just that nice. New State Bank Block, Algona, Iowa. W. F. CARTER.
