David Cady, who tried to get his wife sent to the asylum not long .ago, and is now defending in a divorce suit, went over to a neighbor's last week and bred a big scab on his nose. The News says: Yesterday morning the Striplings and David Cady had a roundup at Stripling's place and Cady was hauled to town by neighbors and Doctor Lacy patched him up. The way we understand it is that there is a horse mixed up in the deal and that Cady went to the Stripling place in regard to it, and when there two of the .boys proceeded to give him a good mauling, with the above result. THAT THROUGH TRAIN, A Rumored Renewal of Through Service to Minneapolis Over tlie Nortliwesteru, Supt. Heath of tho Northwestern was in Algona Monday evening. It is ru- inored that it was in connection with a through train service to St. Paul and Minneapolis. Nothing is definite, but it is said that a through passenger will go north through Algona at 3 o'clock in the morning, and another will go south about 4 o'clock in the morning. Those are not the pleasantest hours that could be suggested. „ NEW OPERA HOUSE COMPANY. TJje Jfew Corjiorntlou Succeeds tjje Old and Will Soon lie lu Full Control, The change of stock from the old to the new opera house company occurred Friday evwaiug. A tornpoiwy organization was ou'eetecl to last uotll the jugular May meeting, .Wm. Ehlevs was chosen, tveaeuvei 1 , and J, W. Wadsworth secretary. The new board of directors is: E. J. Murtagh, Win. Ehlers, J. W. Wadsworth, J. W. Sullivan, F. W. Dingley, B. W. Haggard, Alex White. There are 25 members of the company, each with $25 pntd in. It. makes a strong company and insures a splendid management for another five years. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. Dr. Kenefick went to Belmond for a day's visit last week. J. W. Robinson was in DCS Moines last week to visit his brother. Miss Fannie Spencer is up from Alden for a visit with her brother, the professor. Li. J. Rice and family started for Phoenix, Arizona, Monday to make their permanent home. Dr. Paul was up from Des Moines over Sunday. He says tho Yeomen are up to 2,200 now and are adding 500 a month. dipt. Geo. S. Foster has moved his family to Ames, that being a more central point for his work as agent for the Algona flouring mill. W. B. Howard is going to take his family to Des Moines to live. He is travelling from there and can be at home more. They will move soon. Frank Nicoulin had 15 land seekers for Minnesota yesterday. He gets good reports from C. F. Calkins, who is in Illinois. We are in for a big land boom. Auditor Calkins has been at Callendar for a week and Mrs. Calkins has been visiting at Blue Earth City. He went there for Sunday and both are again at home. All tho'teachers went to Webster City yesterday to inspect the schools. They propose to know if there is anything better than we have here, and improve wherever possible. Mrs. R. A. Palmer has been giving a series of social receptions at her home on McGregor street, which have been highly enjoyable. A pleasant party was entertained last evening. Judge and Mrs. Quarton have been at home to their friends during the past week, giving several very enjoyable parties. Yesterday the Western Stars were to have added to the pleasure of the occasion, but were prevented by Mis Kate Smith's enforced absence. Dr. Morse was called to Des Moines last week to attend the death and funeral of his sister, Mrs. Fannie Rhea, who was the victim of consumption at the early age of 37 years. She left two children, one of whom the doctor brought home and will care for in his family. Mrs. Rhea died Thursday and the funeral was held Friday, Col. R. H. Spencer came from Chicago Saturday night, and has been confined to his bed since. He is suffering considerably, but will soon be able to be out again. The sensational reports the Chicago papers sent out are substantially unfounded. The colonel was in company with men well known all the time in the city and was not robbed. He was very sick one night in the hotel, and was under the care of the Palmer house physicians. That is all there is of truth in the reports. He took but $40 in money with him, which in itsqlf proves the falsity of most of the reports. HAPPILY MABBIED. John Kalii and Miss Mary Hahr Become Man and Wife. Yesterday John Kain, son of the late Patrick Kain, and Miss. Mary Bahr were married in Algona. The marriage was set originally for a few days before Mr. Rain's death and was postponed on that account. The bride is the daughter of one of Plum Creek's thrifty farmers, while Mr. Kain has all the good business qualities that distinguished his father. The happy couple begin housekeeping at the old Kain home on Plum Creek, which is now John's farm, FIREMEN'S ANNUAL MASQUERADE, A Big Attendance and a Pleasant Party—Maskers Win Prizes.

Give me knowledge, give me health, But in grief and sorrow wild Give me the wealthiest known of wealth— The artless smile of a child. —Clark W. Bryan in Good Housekeeping. BLOWN OUT TO SEA. Helplesft Blrdi That Are Driven to Death by Fierce Gales. Birds driven before the wind are tossed about relentlessly, and they rarely recover their balance after once being caught by the gale. Shore birds are either dashed upon the waves and made to swim for their lives or they are hurled violently against trees or other objects and killed. Shore birds, when facing a gale, will take every advantage of trees, houses and hills as defenses against the wind. They will close their wings and sink so close to the ground as to get the protecting shelter of a hedge fence, and then swoop up again with renewed headway. They frequently advance before the gale by a seriea of sido evolutions, flying at right angles to the wind until they have attained oou« siderablo velocity, and then wheeling about straight against the wind ana making some headway before it overcomes them. This operation is repeated continually until the desired place il reached. During our fall and early wintq gales partridges and quail are quite frequently blown out to sea by a strong hurricane, where some of them have been picked up by fishermen, lu iiearlj all such instances they are caught by the gale when high in the air, and before they can recover themselves they are hurried out beyond the shore and dropped into the water. With theit plumage soaked with the spray they instantly become helpless and cannot reach the shore in the face of the wind. On our inland lakes and rivers this is a more common sight than along the ocean shore. When once blown out to sea, the shore birds have little chance of escape. Unable to battle against the heavy wind, they yield themselves to their fate and drift' about until the storm subsides. By that time they are likely to be so far from shore that they cannot reach it again, and they either fly or swim until they starve to death or die of exhaustion. Their dead bodies, along with those of the hapless gulls, terua and herons, are finally drifted upou some shore, where the waves leave them high and dry. After every heavy storm hundreds of such luckless victims can be found on the beaches of our Atlantic coast.—Our Animal Friends. Machinery and Modern Farming. The smallest implement upon a big wheat farm is a plow. And from the plow to the elevator—from the first operation in wheat farming to the last —one is forced to realize how the spirit of the age has made itself felt here and has reduced the amount of human laboi to the minimum. The man who plows uses his muscle only incidentally in guiding the machine. The man who operates the harrow has half a dozen levers to lighten his labor. The "sowei who goeth forth to sow," walks leisurely behind a drill and works brakes. Th< reaper needs a quick brain and a quid hand, but not necessarily a strong arm nor a powerful back. He works sitting down. The thrashers are merely assistants to a machine, and the men who heave the wheat into the bins only press buttons. The most desirable farmhand is not the fellow who can pound the "mauling machine" moat lustily at the county fair. He is the man with tha cunning brain who can get the mosi work out of a machine without break* ing it. The farm laborer in the west today, where machinery is employed, finds himself advanced to the ranks of skilled labor and enjoys a position not widely different from that of the mill- hand in the east. Each is a tender of a machine.—William Allen White in Soribner's, Smoking Statistics. Holland holds the first place in the world as a nation of smokers. Every Dutchman consumes on an average 100 ounces a year. The Belgian comes a good second with an annual consumption of 80 ounces, followed closely by Turkey with 70 ounces and the United States with 60 ounces. Germany, France, Spain and Italy tread closely on their heels, while the United Kingdom comes comparatively low on the list with 28 ounces.—London Tit-Bits. How to Toughen Paper. A plan for rendering paper as tough as wood or leather, it is said, has been recently introduced on the continent. It consists in mixing-chloride of zinc with the pulp in the course of manufacture. It has been found that the greater the degree of concentration of the zinc sola* tion the greater will be the toughness of the paper. A.

About the year B. 0. 330 edible serpents were sold at a penny each in the Egyptian markets. They were shipped to Rome. Italian vipers were cheaper, testing about a half penny each. In Asia the average number of inhabitants per square mile is 48; in Afriua, 16; in America, 8; in Australia, J. LOVELY LETTERS. " What lovely letters I receive from Mary Hopkins," said one young lady to anotfi- er In our hearing, and while we are not acquainted with the individual referred to, yet this remark gives us a favorable opinion of her, which we likewise have of all who master the art of letter writing, for such persons seldom fail to win their way to social and business prominence. Parents, give your boys and girls a chance. Buy each one of them, who is ten years old and over, a scholarship in some school of correspondence where trained teachers conduct a practical and instructive and exceedingly interesting course of social and business correspondence with their scholars, old or young, at their homes. At the school named below the price of tuition has been reduced to the remarkably small sum of $2.40 per year, payable sixty cents quarterly in advance, or $3.00 in one cash payment. For some time this school has also furnished its scholars all needed stationery, and will continue to do so in the future. Let that progressive word, "Now," which has been the key note to so many successful careers, be your watchword, and apply at once for a scholarship in the National School of Correspondence at 1805 Fourth Ave. South, Minneapolis, Minn.
