Mrs. Grant Benschoter was taken sick last week. John Brown and Andres Hotsch are new made citizens. Irvington will celebrate Christmas at the church Monday evening. The boys' band of Emmetsburg gave a concert at Whittemore last night. A brother of Jack St. John has come on and taken his blacksmith shop. Christmas exercises will be held in the Newcomb school house Saturday evening. The new Rogers livery barn _is finished and open for business. It is well fitted up. Henry Mason has sold his cigar store to Manuel Boals. He has not decided what he will do. The grip is getting worse. R. F. Hedrick says his cat has it, and wheezes about as bad as anybody. Mayor Stinson sat down on a glove contest at Sheldon a week ago. Charlie has the right mettle. The Congregational Sunday school has a Christmas tree and literary pro- gramme Monday evening. Christmas comes next Monday. THE UPPER DES MOINES wishes that it may be a merry one to all. A cantata and Christmas tree will be the programme on Monday evening at the Burt Presbyterian church. Charlie Winkle is putting a set of big scales in the alley back of this office. Geo. Platt is fixing them. It is rumored that Jas. Patterson will buy the Bailey-Bros, grocery business and move it to the Cowles block. Let the wolf hunt on Jan. 18 be as big as the outside papers have had it, the biggest thing ever seen in the state. Bro. Schaeffer, late of the Burt Monitor, goes to Leech Lake, Minn,, next week to take charge of a paper. The funeral of Mrs. J. F. Gilmoro was largely attended last Thursday, Rev. Bagnell conducting the exercises. The Irvington people are building some stalls near the church there for shelter to teams. It is a commendable step. E. J. Murtagh has bought A. C. Cady's home in Burt. Mr. Cady is going to go south, but what is Ed. going to do? T, L. Grose succeeds the late Jas, Scott as justice of the peace at Emmetsburg, He will hold the scales of j ustice in even balance. A meeting will be held at the court house next week Saturday at 2 o'clock to plan for the wolf hunt and make definite arrangements. Another big and pleasant dancing party is on the tapis for Saturday evening of next week, with the Marshalltown orchestra present. A full-blood Poland China boar was put on the Ingham farm west of town yesterday. It came from the Van Auken farm at Mason City. Marsh Stephens was lawyer in a case at Ledyard last week against G. W. Pangburn of Elmore. The case is appealed to the district court. The Emmetsburg Reporter says: A, A. Brunson of Algona was attending to business »Hh« cour t oouse and renewing old acquaintances in Emmetsburg OB Wednesday. The only trouble wit)) Mr. Brawn's visits of tete years has been that they are, too short and too far between. The special meetings held by Rev. J, B. Clapp, state Sunday school mission ary, in the McWhorter'school house in Portland, are proving popular and successful. Mr. Stephens says that his bean crop has paid better this year than any crop of any other kind reported in the county, and that next year he and his partner will put in 160 acres to beans The standpipe these days should be kept full of water, whether anyone gets any to use or not. Algona would suffer as badly as Bancroft with the little water that is sometimes in the pipe. No new developments are to be reported in postofflce matters. Jan. 8 is Hearing but no one knows what is coming. Mr. Heise, we learn, has the biggest endorsement for the place here at home. J. J. Wilson had a bad fall in his house one day last week and for awhile it was feared that he had suffered serious injury. He is out again, however, and in more vigorous health than for some time. S. S. Sessions came home yesterday from his New York visit and found 200 letters waiting for him from applicants for positions. He has had a fine time and has enjoyed himself, and is now ready for business. A Swea City correspondent writes to the Bancroft Register: "Some of «ur citizens were taken in to appear before the grand jury on Thursday night on the liquor traffic. We hope this will put an end to this business." M. B. Dalton has lately received a high bred Chester White boar from Illinois and now has a premium lot of Chester Whites, consisting of asow and a litter of full-blood pigs and this boar. He believes in the Chester White. is as bad as the original remarks. Mr. Bishop appears at his best when impersonating somebody besides himself. Our Bancroft correspondent gives a graphic account of the big fire which cleaned out a block last Thursday morning. The loss of the handsome bank building is especially unfortunate, as it was one of the finest buildings in the county. W. F. Carter has brought out some fine cut glass bowls, and handsome china this year and has a very fine display. He also ordered a very expensive cut £rlass lamp for one customer. His show window is a picture to look at. Saturday a train of 15 cars of hay went south on the Northwestern, with banners out announcing that S. C. Moore of Elmore was shipping for export. The train goes to Brunswick, Ga., where the hay is loaded on boats for France. E. P. Keith received a short-horn calf last week from Zuill Bros., Rock county, Wis,, that is a beauty. He is about five months old and fashionably bred and is a valuable addition to Mr. Keith's well-known stock farm and to Plum Creek township. Marriage licenses have been issued to j. W. Patterson and Anna Butts, Al- 3ert Wheeler and Mary Edmondprf, G. S. Newton and Mary Mitchell,' J. S. Frearck and Martha Workman, Wrn. Workman and Lena Winter, Dan. Smith and Lena Gray. The Germania beer sellers pleaded uilty and were fined $300 each and costs. They were let go to collect money to pay up. This will probably end the trouble at Germania. At the Irst sign of beer selling there, however, the whole posse will be put in jail to pay the fines. It is reported that Prof. Gilchrist, while driving near his home at Laureus, md a runaway last week and was ihrown and quite seriously hurt. It was only a few years ago that he was thrown at Sioux City and injured. His many friends here will regret to learn of this second misfortune. Tom Kelley is back from Minneapo- is, where he has been for some time working on the street cars. Tom oined the union and the union struck tot long ago. In St. Paul the boys hung together, but in Minneapolis they split up and the result was that the company came out ahead and now runs ts cars without union men. Tom and the others had a chance to go to work by agreeing to quit the union, but he refused and will stay in Algona awhile. Miss Lillian Decker has resigned her position in the public schools and will not teach next term. She has been one of the best teachers thus far connected with the schools, and with Miss Cramer has been making a primary department that is not excelled in Iowa. Her place will be hard to ffll. Claire Blossom, the oldest of J. R. Blossom's two boys, is very low, suffering from an abcess in the back. He is sinking gradually and but little hope is felt that he can recover. He had several surgical operations performed on his feet, which were out of shape, and has never been well since. A telegram Monday announced the death of the mother of P. L. Slugle and Mrs. H. Hoxie at Cherubusco, Ind., and the probable death of their father. He is 82 years old and she was 79. Both children started Monday evening for the old home and will doubtless attend the funeral of both parents. Dr. Sayers attended the state meeting of veterinarians last week at Des Moines and was chosen first vice president as well as one of the board of censors. The veterinarians will ask the legislature to adopt rules by which only those who have passed a thorough examination shall be allowed to practice in Iowa. Allen, who forged a check for $190 at LuVerne, pleaded guilty and was sentenced yesterday by Judge Carr to six months in the penitentiary. It was his first offense and he expressed sorrow for his crime. J. W. Sullivan appeared and stated his case to the court. Allen's mother was present and has done everything she could to help him. Letters are advertised for Clem Barker, J. A. Brown, Claude Cram, Fred Davis, Jos. E. Holam, Eva M. Kelloy, Jno Cirshner, Jacob Knudsen, Francis Kriethe, Chas. H. Lull, Jas. Truty, M. L. Mayhent, Jno. McCarn, Alice Miller, Ellen Miller, Frank Miller, Sadie Miller, Marie Schneff, Geo. Stout, Mrs. M. Stuart, Laura Wlrcher, Elizabeth Young. Bro. Branagan of the Emmetsburg Democrat was over Saturday, presumably to see Bro. Hlnchon about how to fish a postoffico out of the powers that be. The Estherville Republican in this connection says: "Verily, democratic editors should be rewarded by something else than postofflces if they helped bring on these democratic times." A fine entertainment will be given at the Congregational church Jan. 2, by the Chicago Ladies' quartette. In common with many of out- citizens wo heard these singers at Spirit Lake a year ago, and can heartily endorse their concert. Tickets will be 50 cents, for sale at Miss Dodd's. No one can afford to miss this who enjoys good music. A little whirl wind was on the street Saturday evening. It caught a fancy sign Durdall & Co. have and smashed it through one of their plate glass windows and then took it to the middle of the street. Two men can scarcely lift it, and it was sitting outside the side walk. Gillie Rutherford says the wind nearly upset one of his 'busses. The glass cost $45. The jury gave a verdict of $1 to S, H. McNutt in his suit against A. L. Cheney. It arose out of the disputed possession of a hay car at Hobart. Cheney put some hay in the car, McNutt took it out and loaded it with his hay. Cheney threw this hay out and put his own in again, and then the car was decided to belong to McNutt, and tie sued for damages. J. B. Jones telegraphed to Mrs. Nannie Setchell Saturday asking her to come to Des Moines at once, as Mrs. Jones was very low, Mrs. Setchell wrote from there Monday that Mrs. Jones was then unconscious and that death must come speedily. Mrs. Setchell was a warm friend of Mrs. Jones in Algona and will remain with her as Long as she can render any assistance. According to reports to the secretary of state, Kossuth county has had eight criminal convictions during the year past. The total cost to the county has aeen $1,652.19, which includes the salary of the county attorney. Fines amounting to $350 have been imposed, jut none paid in, Exactly 60 counties lave had more convictions. Polk eads with J47» which have cost 170,193. Emmet has none. Eighty counties; have paid more for county attorney fees than Kossuth. Winnebago paid the least, $225. Kossuth paid $575. Woodbury paid the highest, $2,820. J. L. Sutton is under arrest charged by the Emmetsburg grand jury with obtaining money by false representations. It arises out of a trade in which he gave one of the famous property statement notes for n horse. The man came over and replovied his horse and has had Sutton indicted. The charge is, we believe, that ho represented that the note was good, and it was of course worth just the paper it is on. If you want to find anybody's ago ask him to take a paper and write the number of the month he was born >in, and multiply it by two, add five to the sum, multiply the latter by 60, add his age to the product, then deduct 305 and add 115 to the remainder. Tell him then to tell you what he has as a result. The first figure of the number will tell the month he was born in and the other two will tell his age. It is a curious little trick with figures. The State Register, in its comment on the Bancroft fire, suggests that every person should look at his chimney Hues and guard against all danger. We believe that even greater precautions than that should bo taken and that every fall the city marshal should have some competent person examine the chimneys at least in the business part of town, or where buildings stand near together. At the Baptist church next Saturday evening there will be a novel exercise and a novel exhibition. In the first place there will bo a musical and literary programme, then there will be a Ferris wheel, beautifully decorated, exhibiting the presents to the children, and distributing them in baskets, etc. Next Sunday the pastor will preach a Christmas sermon, and in the evening he will preach the second sermon in the revival serins. All are welcome. The Estherville Republican said last week: "THE UPPER DES MOINES of Algona has considerable to say about open saloons at Armstrong and criti- cises severely in regard to them. THE UPPER DBS MOINES' information is hearsay and no doubt the reports are greatly exaggerated. Perhaps that paper could find a field for temperance nearer home." The reports of this term of court speak for how Kossuth attends to these cases. What is Emmet county doing to enforce the law? A series of lectures is being arranged to bo given by E. P. MoElroy. The plans have not been perfected but in all ten will bo given and tickets will be sold at $1 for the series. Mr. McElroy is at home in the historical studies ho will take up, and as ho has been unfortunate in being sick for some weeks, everybody should fool an interest in encouraging the sale of tho tickets. Those who cannot use them themselves can give them to others who wonld be glad to profit by the course. Full particulars will bo made known to the public.' A. Bush had a bud fire at his farm in Crescolast week. Near his granary was a small forge which was used for all kinds of tinkering, and it is thought sparks from this set the blaze. In any event the first thing known was that the granary was well afire. A buggy, threshing machine, 120 bushels of wheat, 500 bushels of oats, harnesses, etc., were all burned with the building, and the home was saved with difficulty. The loss is about $500 and as it happens this was the only property on the farm not insured. It is a serious loss and Mr. Bush's friends will regret that such a stroke of bad luck should have fallen to him. Mrs. Patterson, mother of Mrs. W. F. Carter, died at her home in Charles City last Friday. Mrs. Carter was unable to leave, but her sister, Mrs. Harwood, went from here and attended the remains to Wisconsin, where they were buried. Mrs. Patterson's husband was the well-known lawyer of early days, who was killed while sitting in a box car loaded with railroad ties at both ends. A sudden stopping of the train brought the two piles of ties together. This was while the Milwaukee was being built west from Algona, and be was representing the company in this part of the state. The following communication signed by "Bamsey's Sired Man" explains itself: " In your issue of last week you made a mistake. Frank Bamsey and his hired man and J. B. Putton's hired man were not arrested for stealing robes and whips, and there will not be any trial at all, We admit whiskey was the cause of our arrest, but it was in the man who filed tho information Sunday morning. Those 'hard times' people will try to get a few dollars most any way they can, but they can't scare it out of Bamsoy's or J. R. Dutton's hired men." THE UPPER DES MOINES published the facts as stated in the information. It will make duo note of the further proceddings and see thai; all are fairly treated, So much has been said about tho big wolf hunt all over the state that Kossuth must show up and do something. Everybody reports plenty of wolves along the river. C. Bysoii says he saw two one day and throe the next, while going north from town, and he is very anxious to have a hunt. He says that such hunts are common in Denmark, one crowd going along and driving the wolves and another lying in wait with tho guns. In order to haye such a hunt it is necessary to have some one set a day for it. THE UPPER DES MOINES suggests therefore that Thursday, Jan. 18, be tho day and that on that day- all tho hunters in tho county repair to a common place for tho sport. In the meantime will A. L. Belton and Mr. Byson and the others interested get together and arrange plans? Enough scalps can be got to buy a big supper. The $25 received at the Charity ball for reading matter for the reading room has been invested in tho following periodicals, which will come during 1894: The Youth's Companion, St. Nicholas, Illustrated American, Review of Reviews, Cosmopolitan, Mc- Cluro's Magazine, Chicago Graphic, The Arena, and Romance, Tho reading room already has Harpers' Weekly, the Ladies' Homo Journal, tho Union Signal, and other weeklies, and tho now list will give its tables an interesting layout. Many of these periodicals are not commonly taken, and together they furnish a list that cannot bo had except hero. With tho room open at convenient times thoro is no reason why it should not be visited by everybody, and especially by the young people and those who cannot afford to own those expensive art and literary magazines. .

Tlio majority of people die sooner than they should. Evidence of this fact IB growing daily. Waring says: " Disease is not a consequence of life; it is due to unnatural conditions of living—neglect, abuse, want." Dr. Stephen Smith, on the same subject, " Man is born to health and long life; disease is unnatural, death, except from old Hge, is accidental, and both are preventable by human agencies." This is almost invariably true of death resulting from heart disease. Careless over-exertion, intemperate use of tea, coileo, tobacco, alcoholic or other stimulants are generally the causes of this difficulty, ami iiuliilerence to its progress results in sudden death, or long sickness ending in death. By the newspapers it can be seen that m:;ny prominent ana hundreds of perform in private life die from heart disease every day. If you hnve any of the following symptoms : shortness of breath, palpitation, irregular pulse, fainting and smothering spells, puin 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, has made a profound. study of heart disease, its causes and cure, and many of the leading discoveries in that direction are due to him. His New Heart Cure is 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 room, and my pulse heat 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 as usual and walk a mile every day, my pulso ranging from 08 to 80. Dr. Miles' remedy is not only a preventive but a cure."
