Jones and Frank Fuller Doing Pen'ance for Rounding Up Too Many Porkers. With a Sure Thing Against Them They Plead Guilty and Take Ten Days in the Cooler, 'Squire Clarke was aroused Saturday morning before 6 o'clock by Ghas. Sample and Will Starks of Irvtngton, who had driven from Livermore to get war' rants for two men who gave their names as Wm. Jones and Frank Fuller. The warrants were issued and in the absence of the othor officers Constable Telller went south at once and about 4 o'clock they were brought back to Algona on the charge of hog stealing. The facts as brought out at the trial are that both Sample and Starks found fat hogs missing Friday morning as they visited their barn yards, and started out to see what had become of them. Someone along the road told them that a load of hogs had been driven towards Liyermore that morning. They made no delay in starting south, found the hogs in the yard whero they had been sold, and also found the men who sold them, who were arrested at once. They had received some $48 for the hogs, and to satisfy the buyer, put up their team and wagon to secure him for $26 they were unable to return. This released them so far as he was concerned and the justice then announced that he could hold them only till noon the day following on the charge of stealing. At this Sample and Starks made their night ride to Al- ?ona and captured the men for trial here. Frank Miles came up to defend them and County Attorney Raymond prosecuted. As one is a boy about 17 years old it was finally agreed to allow them to plead guilty to an offense less than larceny and they did and were sentenced to 10 days in jail and to pay the costs. They had money enough to do that, in all about $18. The men are strangers in this section. They came to Algona Thursday morning and put out their team at the barn back of Heise's block. They'then went to a hotel and went to bed and slept all day. At 9 o'clock at night .hey went around and got their team out and started off gathering in the Digs. They are evidently old hands at ;ho business, at least the older man, 'or one of the Studer boys, hearing of jheir arrest, came to Algona and found .wo of his hogs in Lacey's yard which hey had sold. He will take them as soon as their present sentence is out, and they will not get off so easy again. When at Livermore they inquired about ;url<eys and told the buyer they could oring him a load the next morning, evidently having in mind gathering up i lot in the night. Armstrong's Saloons. Last week we published an account of the trouble in Armstrong because the school board insisted on having school held in a room adjoining a sa- oon. It seems that some of the citizens have objected. The Forest City ummit publishes the following interesting report: " The citizens of Armstrong held a mass meeting one night last week to see what could be done about closing ;he saloons which have been running wide open ever since the town started. [t turned out t'uut a large majority of ;hoso present at the meeting were adverse to closing and some of the minis- tors of the town found themselves almost alone in their denunciation of ;he unlawful traffic. It is said that one of the dons has been running in a building adjoining another building in the same block which is usad for a school room and that the patrons of the former have been known to take the school room for the saloon and open the door and walk in among the pupils before 3nding out that they were in the wrong pew. The latter doggery has been jrdered to move a little farther away Tom the seat of learning, but has not neon ordered closed." Armstrong seems to have a very de- ;ent population, but such reports as ;his read more like the backwoods of Kentucky and Tennessee than like the Dest and most civilized part of Iowa. Where are the officials of Emmet coun- .y and what are they drawing salaries forV MISOELLANEOTJS MEMORANDA. The Gerumniu Liquor Cube, County Attorney Raymond was up in ermania hist week securing O'Rourke again for selling liquor. He was called jy the women of the town, who report a sud state of aft'airs. O'Rourke is al- 'eady under $800 bonds and indictment, jut was bound over again and had $800 nore to put up. Witnesses could not be secured, and such as did testify didn't know much about beer or any- ,hing else. But the man was held and will get what he deserves when the grand jury meets again. This second irrest has caused a. standstill in the .iquor business in Germania, as the fine is $300 for each offense if convicted, The Case of Mr, Ilolmciulat. Among the various sums given by the county board at its last meeting to the poor was $12 a month to Mr. Holm- qulst of Eagle township. Like so many other bare statements this does not carry much of an idea of the story that is connected with it. Mr. Holmquist is a Swede who came to this country a lew years ago with his family, unable to speak English and in debt for his passage. He went into Swea, bought 40 acres and a yoke of oxen on time, and opened a farm. Under these unfavorable beginnings be labored until this fall be bad big stacks of grain and sv, a detective S. C.

And then one day when the wind was blowing a gale, a worthless scamp started a prairie fire near his place and when it had gone by he had his house and yoke of oxen left. His grain, hay, barn, lumber, and everything were gone. There are all sorts of tragedies in the world, and the $12 a month the county gives to Mr. Holm' quist tells of one. In C. Smith's Good Luck. L. C. Smith was in Dubuque last week attending a meeting to settle on appointments of the new revenue officials for this part of Iowa, and came home with his commission as collector in place of Mr. Gulllxson. Mi 1 . Smith will make his headquarters in Algona. He will bo a number one official, and as long as a democrat was to be chosen all will agree that no mistake has been made. The Register's Dubuque dispatch of Saturday says: " J. C. Kelley, editor of the Sioux City Tribune, was sworn into office this afternoon as successor to J. S. Lothrup, for the collect- orship of the Third Iowa district. The terms of the field deputies expire with the departure of the collector by whom they were appointed. To fill the vacancies Mr. Kelley has appointed G. L. Gilbert of Monona to the first division; Capt. L. C. Smith of Algona to the third division; N. S. Handy of Lyon county to the fourth division. There will be no immediate change in the office force, C. H. Brock and Miss Eva McGee retaining their positions for the present. The retiring deputies this evening presented Mr. and Mrs. Loth- rup with an elegant gold watch each." THE TIOKET OF LEAVE MAN. Homo Talent Will Give This Wcll- Icnowii Drama oil Friday Evening —Benefit for the Band. Great preparations have been made for the home -dramatic entertainment to be given Friday evening and the advance sale of seats indicates that the house will be filled. A uniform price of 50 cents has been fixed, except for the gallery. The cast of characters is as follows: Bob Briorly, a Lancashire lad Wilfrid P. Jones Hawkshaw, a detective S. C. Spear Jem Dalton, alias Downey, alias T' Green Jones MOlter MOHS, u UW*Y v*uu. xxuiuuiuu Mr. Gibson, the banker Guy L. Taylor Maltby i Irving Dodge May Edwards Kate Lantry Emily St. Evremond Lizzie Wallace Mrs. Wllloughby Olive Salisbury Sam Wllloughby, always In trouble Sadie Bishop The play represents Bob Briorly, a _reen country boy, and May Edwards, a half starved singing girl, being in a garden where Hawkshaw, a detective, and Jem Dalton, a thief, and old Moss, a receiver of stolen goods, are collected. Green Jones, a rich swell, and Emily St. Evremond enter and Jones gets Brierly to pass counterfeit money, for which ho is sentenced to four years penal servitude. From this through the five acts the parties have various exciting times until in the end Bob Brierly's innocence is proved and his name redeemed and all comes out well. The play is full of interesting situations and is a standard drama. During the first act Mrs. Bishop will introduce fancy dancing. Those who have witnessed the rehearsals say that our home talent compares favorably with visiting companies, and that Algona will witness as good a performance as has lately been in the opera house. THE DABKEY IS POETIO. Ho Favors Us •with a Brief Effusion on tho Evo of Ills Departure. The past week has developed nothing now about tho darkey hold here for the Kessler train robbery, except that he is probably a deserter from the United States army. Marshal Dailey has had two telegrams from Fort Missoula, which seem to agree with tho darkey's story of himself, except that they call him Felix Newsome, while he has said his name was Jim. Monday evening he was sent to Fort Omaha with A. F, Dailey's father in charge, whero a reward of $05 is offered for his return. The suspicion is still strong that he was either in tho train robbery or knows something about it, but no clue has been discovered, Marshal Dailey thinks that if his confession had boon taken when he first broke down that the truth would have come out. But when the time came for his story he had regained his confidence 'and made up a string of lies. Jim has enjoyed his stay in Algona and it is undoubtedly his pleasant experience here compared to his reception it Bancroft which has inspired the following poem, which ho says he penned for our readers: When tho winter bloweth loud, And the earth Is in a shroud; Frozen rain or sleety snow, Dimming every dream below, There Is e'er a spot of green, Whence the heavens may be seen. When our purse Is sinking fast, And our friends are lost, the (last;) And the world doth pour its pain, Sharper than the frozen rain, There is still a spot of green, Whence the heavens may be seen. Let us never meet dlspalr, While that little spot is there. Winter brlghteneth into May, Sullen night to sunny day. Seek we then that spot of green, Whence the heavens may tie seen. Public Notice -Extraordinary, We wish to announce that from this date we will meet all comers at our office for the purpose of .supplying them with money in any amount, from five dollars to ten thousand, on any kind of security from a boot-jack, race horse, town residence, or a good farm.
