M. Richmond at Hot Springs indicates that his ailments are not surrendering so quickly to the healing properties of the springs as a couple of years ago. Algona is growing gradually and substantially and has not had a saloon nor a blind-pig for ten years. Gentlemen of leisure and commercial travelers have been moving there on account of the advantages of church, school, society, and lack of saloons. This talk about towns being dead without saloons is all rot. Just watch them fill the school houses down there. The cry, "taxes are too high," is not. heard from Swea township this year. The township made no levy whatever, so that the state and county levy 138-10 mills, is all there is to pay. Swea has the lowest per cent, of any township, and Sherman with 29 0-10 mills, the highest of any township in the county. Bancroft, with 63 mills, leads the towns with the highest, and Germania, with 30 2-10 mills is the lowest. Hurt Monitor. T. A. Butterfleld left Tuesday to assume permanent management of a creamery at Glen, S. D. His family will remain here, for the present at least. Andrew Chaffee, while blasting rock for John Kerr last Friday, met with a bad accident in which , his hand was bruised and burned, his face also getting some of the powder. For March the creamery took in 584,210 pounds of milk, which is over 67,000 pounds more than last March. The average price paid was 69 cents, a year ago it was 65 cents, The amount checked out for milk reaches $4,031. J. R. Mawdsley had the largest check, 8102.30. Wesley News. W. F. Hunt and A. H. Allen of Algona were down last Friday taking pictures of some of our residences and business blocks. Ben Felt shipped 2,880 dozen eggs this week. The eggs were gathered in ten days and is the largest shipment ever made from Wesley. Rev. Otis, the evangelist of Charles City, who preached in the Congregational church last Sunday, has been working in the interest of the Northwestern Life and Savings Insurance Co. of-Des Moines this week. Ledyard Leader. We are pleased to note the fact that our citizens are taking to setting out trees quite generally this spring. F. E. DeMarsha and Frank Howe of Radcliff came up Monday afternoon and drove across to Germania to take a blind in the institution of a Knights of Pythias lodge there that evening. The lodge starts out with 35 members and good prospects for more. Our people will perhaps be much surprised on hearing that Rev. F. A, Slyfield on Sunday last tendered his resignation as pastor of the Congregational church of this place, the resignation to take effect on June 1. We are not informed as to his reason for resigning, nor of his future intentions. Rev. Slyfield has been pastor of the church here about two years, has been a hard worker and a man for whom our people have always entertained the highest regards.

If good appearances enhance the value of property then GrantBenschot- er's place in Plum Creek Is more valuable than it has ever been. He is having his house, barn and outbuildings all painted up in fine styls. Mr. Benschoter has one of the best farms in this section of the country. There is a notable addition to the ranks of stallions in Kossuth county this season in Gov. D. Jr. who has been placed by F. A. Corey at Wesley. Gov* D. Jr. is one of the handsomestindlvid- uals in lowa.and 'his breeding should be especially acceptable to breeders In Iowa, where his sire, Gov. D., became so famous.

There are five wagons in the neighborhood from German Valley. The Sltuntlou at JSlmoro. Blue Earth City Post: Eltnore has five saloons. That town-has about 100 inhabitants. Talk about taxesl Each saloon must pay $500 license, a good still rent, employ a bartender, support a family and purchase his liquors, beer and cigars. When all these expenses and a fair profit upon the investment is made, somebody has paid some very high taxes. Their state, county and school taxes dwindle to insignificance when compared to the saloon tax of Elmore and vicinity. Algona Man Injured. Livermore Gazette:, C. O. Simpson of Algona was slightly bruised up near Watertown last week. He was showing his shoe samples in his wagon, when a trunk cover fell, pinning his arm. The team started up and during the fracas he was badly brused, but no bones broken. Kew School For Hired Girls. Bailey: The board of supervisors of Kossuth county has bought 200 live jack rabbits. The will be used in a training school for hired girls to teach them to run. No girl will be given a license to work until she can catch three jack rabbits before breakfast. Very "Poor" Voters, Swea City Herald: Winnebago county is going to have a new jail this summer to cost about $5,000. Kossuth county needs one bad enough, but when it comes to voting for one we're too poor (voters). his friends were realized. He Is serv ing his fifth term In congress, and w believe that we do not overstate th facts when we say thathebasredeemei every pledge made by his friends when they urged his nomination againstsome of the best men in the district. He ha risen to a prominence and position o influence in the house that few men at tain. He is a recognized leader in thi debates on the floor. His speeches an listened to with interest, and the effec of what he says does not pass with thi decadence of his voice. He holds a com mandlng position on the most import ant committee In the house and is in timately connected with the raising o the revenues of the government. In the legislation that vitally affects the business welfare of the country he ii directly associated. As a member o the committee of ways and means he has acquired a knowledge of our rev enue affairs that is invaluable to a con gressman. In a business sense Con gressman Dolliver is a valuable man to retain in congress, valuable to his con stituents because valuable the country at large. The situation in the Tenth district is all that his friends can care for There are a number of good men in the district, and if Mr. Dolliver for nny reason were not a candidate it is certain that this district would be wol! represented in the course of time. We say this in justice to the many gooc and able men in the district. But these men are not going to interfere with out present representation in congress, They recognize that no man. no matter what his ability can attain without many years of service the standing Mr. Dolliver has acquired In ton years They believe that these are times when able and experienced statesman should be kept In congress to uphold and strengthen the hands of the president. They are satisfied with the achievements of the present able representative from the Tenth district, and they are going to support him for another term. In the appointment of postmasters it was not possible for the congressman to pleaso everybody. Often ho wits required to pass upon the candidacy of a number of good men, of equal standing in their respective communities, and backed by his own faithful friends and supporters. In making any choice in such cases ho was bound to disappoint the defeated candidates and friends. It is not surprising that some soreness exists In certain communities; it is the most natural thing in the world. But when men reason, and think thatit was impossible to meet the demands of all In these instances they will not carry the matter into unreasoning opposition. Mr. Dolliver has not had the usual amount of trouble from his appointments, and In but comparatively few instances will he meet with any.opposi- tion from this cause. However that may be, he willberenomlnated without opposition in the convention. The people in general will not take up the enuso of a disappointed candidate for office. Questions affecting the business and political interests of the state and nation will dominate the action of men selected to perform the important duty of choosing a congressman. Dolliver's nomination and election are among the certainties of the future. The conditions existing in the district make them an absolute certainty.

Carroll Herald: The Fort Dodge Messenger formally presents the name of Congressman Dolliver for renomina- tion. So far as we can observe this is but a formal matter, for there seems to be no opposition to the renomination of our congressman. It is now ten years since Mr, Dolliver was first nominated at Webster City. He was then less than 30 years old, and bad no experience as a legislator. He was fcnpvw as a rising young lawyer, an orator of rare eloquence and an effective campaign speaker. His favorable acquaintance wi^h leading men of the stjate and district, and the fast and abiding friendships hs bad made in ten years' residence in the ptate h#d gathered around him an enthusiastic and aggressive following that woujd not be satisfied -with, aayfcWng less than his » LOVELY LETTERS. " What lovely letters I receive from Ma • ry Hopkins," said one young lady to another 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 oow'espondence 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 $3.40 per year, payable sixty cents quarterly in advance, or $2.00 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, 60 YEARS' EXPERIENCE TRADE MARKS COPYRIGHT? ftc. a sketch and description way ur opinion free whether w, ble.

SO BRUSSELS IS CHARACTERIZED BY AN AMERICAN TOURISt. Some of It* Most Attractive Features — A Handtome Boulevard in Pl&ce of the Old City Wall—The Immense Town Hall How the T»am Can Are Operated. Brussels is a beautiful city and ow«s its beauty in a large measure to the good sense and public spirit of its citizens or a ruling king who rales in the interest of the people. One good thing comes of a fortifiec city, or at least has come to Paris and Brussels, and that is when by expansion it has become necessary to tear down the fortification it has left the boulevard. Brussels te now about three times as large as the original walled city, and this boulevard forms a broad street around between the center and the outside from 200 to 800 feet wide. It is more than a street or avenue; it is a street and a park. It goes by different names at different parts, and Boulevard Waterloo—the widest—is first a sidewalk, then a paved street perhaps 15 feet wide for business purposes, then ground with two rows of trees, 80 feet wide, for horseback riding, then 40 feet or so of asphalt or macadam for carriages, then 80 feet (at a guess) with four rows of trees for pedestrians, with seats for resting; then another paved street for business and street cars, and, lastly, the other sidewalk. At different places ore booths for selling papers, etc., waiting rooms for the street car service and public conveniences. Through the town there are two broad avenues and many outside, like the Avenue Lonise, which leads out to the Bois, and, like the boulevard, has the same combination—part street and part park of itself. The other streets are neither wide noi straight, but cool in a hot day and likely warm in winter. The buildings are not whole blocks from street to street as in Paris, each separate house or store varying somewhat one from the other, but they are all in a locality or block about of the same height and degree of finish—all kept clean and bright—the telegraph and telephone wires all over the tops strung from roof to roof and the whole city supplied with street car service. One of the lines is supplied with cars that run on the track where there is a track and turn out on the pavement where there is none. This is done by using common omnibus wheels for the carriage and two leading wheels which drop into the grooves in the rails— when in line—which keeps the car on all right. By custom, law or common sense none of the carriages has tires less than about two inches wide, sc that the ground rail does not interfere at all with the common street traffic. The king, either by his power or influence, sees to it that the companies give the worth of the money. The fares are very low—only a cent for short rides, varying according to the distance—and the companies are no doubt managed on economical lines. As an example, the tickets or receipts are printed on papei and are canceled by the conductor tearing off the corner. How simple compared with the thick ticket and punch! The street cars, or tram cars, have maps of the route over which they travel posted so one who can follow a maj can see where the special line he is cm goes, what main streets it crosses and where it connects with other lines. Probably nothing has been said about Brussels for the last 800 years that did not include the Hotel de Ville, or town hall, with its openwork spire. Inside it is a museum, with many curiosities and noted paintings. Surrounding it and throughout the old part of the town there are many ancient Flemish buildings, and in the new part is the Hall oi Justice, one of the largest buildings in fche world, if not the very largest,. It is larger than St. Peter's, and though Philadelphia claims to have the largest this is 500 by 600 and 400 feet high, as against the Philadelphia structure's 460 feet square hy the same height, and the Philadelphia building has a large open court, which the Brussels Hall of Justice has not. Anyway there is an awful lot of stone and architecture about it. I do not know whether they deal out justice on the same scale as the building, but the affairs of the city seem to be well managed, and one would think, from the talk of the people, that the ling has a good deal to do with it. He is greatly liked, is around the streets and in the exhibition every day and stops to talk to the exhibitors and workmen. We had the honor of meeting him two or three times. He was going one way in the aisles of the exhibition and u the street, and we were going the other. "Long live the king I"-—John E. Sweet in American Machinist. Such IB Fame. A Prussian officer in the German army has been in the habit of questioning raw recruits on simple matters of na- lioual history. Here are a few replies o his question, "Who is Bismarck?"
