THE UPPEK riE8 MOtlsfEB: ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, MAKOH 9, 1898. ALL OVER BIG KOSStTfi WEEK'S COUNTY NEWS CONDENSED Peculiar Surgical Operation oil A AdolpliSoti of Hahcrbft—Eleva- tion of Flattened Scalp* Adolph Adolphson of Bancfoft wa taken to Clilcngo not long ago for a pe culiar surgical operation, which is de scribed in a Chicago telegraphic dis patch, reprinted in the Bancroft Reg ister: CHICAGO, Feb. 26.—Dr. E. M. Phelps one of the most eminent surgeons in New York city, is in Chicago for i short stay, and he appeared before thi clinic of Rush Medical college and per formed some difficult operations. The one most unique was that successful!. > accomplished on Adolph Adolphson 6 Bancroft, Iowa. Since his fifth year Adolphson has been embarrassed with a flat head This distortion was the result of a 12 foot drop into a well, the bottom o which the lad struck on the left side o bis cranium. The soft bones were flattened and for days It was believed the boy would die. Ho survived, bul the head was flat on one side. His lefl side was paralyzed, to add to the dis tressing details, and soon epilepsy showed itself at frequent intervals, Dr. Phelps cut around a largo por tion of the skull and elevated it. The raised part was kept in placo by sewing up the periosteum. In 20 minutes tlio Iowa man's head was round as an apple and there is no reason to expect anything but the best results from the operation. Dr. Phelps was assisted by Drs. Bates and Reynolds of Rush college. Dr. Nicholas Senn, who is at the head ol the clinic, gave way to his visitor, and was simply a witness. Afler the surgeon had cut into the skull he pressed the flat portion out. A largo incision had to be made to cover the affected part, and after the bone had been elevated, the covering or periosteum had to bo sowed to keep the cranium from falling back to its deformed condition. A great deal of bone had to be cut away, and Dr. Phelps did this with the bone forceps. By the elevation of the cranium, pressure on the brain was removed, and this will preclude the possibility of a return of the epileptic symptoms. Adolphson was not weakened mentally to any extent, but he walked with the greatest difficulty, and his constitution was being severely racked by the recurring spasms brought on by the pressure of the bone on his brain.

OOOKE'S BEPORT. The State Guards Jlnvc Made a Gain In UJfle I'rncttco-AdvlseS Competition by Companies. Colonel Thoraaa F. Cooke, the general inspector of small arms practice in the Iowa National Guard, has just filee his annual report with Adjutant General Byers. The report shows a very gratifying improvement in the efficiency of the Iowa troops as marksmen. The report shows that there is a total of 69 United States sharpshooters and marksmen now in the service, and thai under state rules there are 243 sharpshooters and 343 marksmen, a very largo gain over last year. Colonel Cooke compliments the captains of the different companies who have mndo this gratifying report possible. He closes his report with a suggestion that a competition between companies at the state range would be an excellent idea. If such a thing should happen that the Iowa National guard should be called upon In the event of a war with Spain, the marksmen and sharpshooters mentioned would be valuable men to the government. In his report Colonel Cooko says, in part: The increased interest developed by the schools at the stato rnngo is again manifest and the result is Unit more men than ovei before have been instructed in the use ol their weapons. The increase in the numbei of those qualifying as marksmen or bettor is larger than the Increase in the total number firing. This shows that the instruction in tha companies it improving as we had expected it would do from the knowledge gullied at the stato range. Tlio number of men lirinpr nl 200 yards is ,f>38, about 00 per cent, of tlio force mid 70 percent, more than lustyenr, which was our high water mark. If tlio First regiment liad equalled its last yenr record we should have ronched the United Status army percentage for this year. DNinotocn sharpshooters and twenty-three marksmen qimliilcd tinder urniy rules while Hie number on tlio rolls who have previously qualified is increased to 27, making a total of 00 United Suites sharpshooters and marksmen now in tlio service. All guardsmen who take the time and trouble to meet the standard set for the army arc entitled ,o all the distinction gained from the ailvci :ross or buttons. Under stnto rules there are 343 sharpshooters and 848 marksmen, a gain of 103 over lastycar. Nearly 8(5 per cent., or 83-1 men, completed .ho stato course, a gain of 150, or 7 per cent, riio general figure of merit is 48.4 a gain of '.2 points over last year. Tlio First, Brigade again takes its position it tlio head and lends in all items except United States marksmen and the number completing the state course. Both brigades make a gain in thoir figures of merit. Of the regiments the Fourth is first with 190 men, 78 per cent, firing, 800 completing -ho course and a merit of 07.2—a fine show- Seven companies bavo a figure of rneritof over 100, viz: Company M, Fourth regiment, dipt. Greger, Cherokee, 125.1; Company E, Third regiment, Capt. Mount, Ethenandoah, 131.8; Company G, Fourth reg- ment, Capt. Cliantland, Fort Dodge, 110.4: Company L, Third regiment, Capt. Pryor, Council Bluffs, 114.8; Company F, Fourth regiment, Capt. Foster, Algona, 108.2; Company B, Third regiment, Capt. Moore, Villisca, 105.0; Company B, Second regiment, Capt. Dalzell, Davenport, 100.3. But five companios reached the 100 mark last year. A competition in the state range would be a, groat aid to many company commanders In interesting tboir men in firing and should be held. The company which closes the season with a figure of merit of 04 or better has put in many hours of hard work on the range without hope of reward other thai the satisfaction of a duty well performed. As the I'osults depend almost entirely upon the interest of the company officers upon whom the chief burden falls, too much credit cannot bo given the large number who have made {possible the gratifying re suits shown in this report. ALGONIANS IN THE WEST. Some Newsy Extracts from a Licttcr Written by Mrs. Dr. Uurr. Mrs. E. G, Bovvyor received a lettei from Mrs. Dr. Barr last weelc and THE UPPEK DES MOINES Is allowed to publish a few paragraphs which will greatly interest the many Kossuth friends ol that estimable family. After speaking of meeting Mrs. T. V. Robinson and Mattie of Minneapolis, now on the coast visiting, Mrs. Barr says D. H. and Mrs. Hutchins are located near them, and that Mr. White, Lettie Hutchins' husband, is president of the ollege at Los Angeles, which theii children have been attending. She then gives a number of Items of personal news: , 11 There are so many places to go to here— four coast towns only from 30 to 80 miles away and it is so nice to see the old ocean, so everybody goes there often. Lust summer we cumped.nearly two weelts a Redondo, and the summer before at Long Beach uid attended oaiup mooting, going in bulling nearly every day. But our days in Los Angeles are numbered I guess, for Dr. Barr las already boon away since the SS of Do- 3euiber. He had a chance to buy out the Dregon Koeley institute and as he always iked that work he thought it best to do so, uid if wo had not had a homo here we would have been away before this. Doctor bought out Dr. Taylor, ason.jn-law of E. B. Dumpbell of Arstrong. The institute was n Salem, but he has since moved it to Portland and is doing very well, so that will undoubtedly be our future home when ve can get away from here, and that is a lice large city to live in, the only objection ;o me being the wet and muddy winters, >ut hero it is entirely too dry this winter. We have only had three or four showers ind they were light and only wet the sur- 'ace, so ranchers are feeling rather iluo, and hay Is very high, even now about 10 a ton. "The day that doctor went away Nilla vas married. She had not intended to luite so soon, but she wanted her papa to be at the wedding and so without much cer- imony or preparation she was married, but •he lias since been home considerable to do iOwing. She married one of the students vho graduated last year from the theologl- jal department' of the university where hey both attended. She only went through he sophomore year. Her husband, Mr. McGee, is stationed at San Pedro this year, a small sea coast town, but likely to grow apidly if they secure this inner harbor hey have been working for in congress, vhioh seems to be quite sure now. Nilla and her husband both expect to be foreign missionaries as soon as there seems to be ,n, opening for them, "Mamie is in the freshmanyear atschool, iut is now making a specialty of music and s going to try and graduate at the school f music next year.

In order to encourage the movement of settlers and land buyers from Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa and eastern states to Western Minnesota, South Dakota and North Dakota, the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul By. Co. has very materially reduced its carload rates for emigrant movables, so that farmers who have purchased lands in Western Minnesota, South Dakota and North Dakota can take all of their belongings with them to their new homes at small expense, which inducement upon the part of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Ry. will no doubt be greatly appreciated by those who .are thus benefitted.
