ALGONA IOWA, MAY 11 1808. - INTERNATIONAL PRESS ASSOCIATION. CHAPTER iV.—(Continued.) "Oh, poor thing! Joe came home drunk and knocked her about, and one of the neighbors, who couldn't bear it airy longer, went and fetched a policeman, and Joe was marched off, to poor Janet's unutterable dismay," Miss Dimsdale replied. ', "Poor Janet!" murmured Dorothy, eoftly. i "By,the by, Joe Benham works for you, David, does, he not?" Miss Dimsdale asked. "Yes, he does." "I wonder could you do something? Poor Janet is in the most dreadful trouble about him." "Well, I'll go round and see if you like," David answered; "but Benham's an awful brute, and will drink all ho can get hold of to the end of the chapter. I don't know whether you have ever noticed .it, Miss Dlmsdale, • but somehow it seems to me that almost Invariably the women prefer to marry the wrong men, and vice versa. Look at my own mother, for instance; a sweeter creature did not live, but she was never the right wife for my father, and nobody knew it better than himself. Yes, and she knew it, too. She always used to tell father that whan ho went from Graveletgh Hall to Dovercourt he made the greatest mistake of his life." ! "Past Graveleigh Hall, you. mean, David," put In Dorothy, sharply. "I dare say he knew very well what he ,Tvas about, and took the one because he could not get the other." < "My dears, my dears," cried Mias pimsdale, to whom all this was untold agony, "'let bygones be bygones. I am sure, David, that your father was in love with your mother to the very end. Really, the youug people of today take too much upon themselves and settle the affairs of their elders in an offhand way which is positively indo- • cent." ! There was a sound of tears in Miss Dimsdale's voice which went near to betraying that this subject had more than a common interest for her. Dorothy recognized dimly that her aunt. was pained by something that had been said, and never sorry to have an excuse for finding fault with Da- ,vid, she turned sharply upon him. } "Really, David," she cried,, "it is very dishonorable of you to come tell- jng us what your mother used to say to your father—it could never have been meant for us to hear, probably not for you, either. They are both dead, and their mistakes are at an end. •We don't want to know anything about .them. For my part, David," she went on, severely eyeing the young man, <who had turned a fine scarlet hue at !her rather pointed remarks, "1 must tsay that I am surprised to find j'ou are capable either of listening or of tat- itling about it afterwards." I He tried hard to laugh it off as if she had uttered some wonderful joko, [but his face was burning with shame 'and anger, too, and as soon as he conveniently could he betook himaelf away. I "Dorothy, dear, you are a little hard on him," said Miss Dimsdale, with a sigh; after all, he was her old love's eon, and his mother had been her dearest friend. *' "Not at all," said Dorothy, sharply. "David should keep his reminiscences to himself." , "I wish you liked David better," said Miss Dimsdale, rather wistfully. "So do I, auntie, for your sake," answered Dorothy. "You know I do. But 1 don't like him at all; I never.did—I never shall. I can't bear him, and if David was a man," with withering ecorn, "he would take no for an answer and leave me alone." It happened that two days later than this our friend Dick Aylmer received a letter, which ran thus; "Your cousin"—there was no affectionate prefix—"Mary Annandale, writes to me this morning to announce her engagement and approaching marriage to Prince Louis Loi-ino.II —so there is half a million of money- lost, to the family and thrown clean put of the country. I sent wire of congratulation, being too. disgusted to .write a letter. With you, you infernal young idiot, I haven't got the patience of a mouse—I hope you will live to bitterly repent it. Meantime keep out pf my way till I've got over it abit, and don't expect a-penny beyond your four hundred a year, because you won't get it. And if I hear of your marry' Jng anybody under a hundred thousand pounds, J'll cut off your allow-: ance. After you're forty we can think about it, and you need never expect me to fall in very quickly with your views, ae you have not troubled your- gelf to fall in \vit,h mine. And I think it pnly just'to tell ypu that if I have a chanpe I shall niarry again, in the hope of haying an helv of my own. .Yjpurs, "AYLMER." / pick j-ead it and read it again and tbei* tossed it aside with a short laugh, ' | "Nice letter to have from one's near- f «M»t relaUve/' fee aaid to. himself. "He'll again ui the hope of having uu •of Wsown, 4ye, but feey ladyship, as tough ae leather and as bard HS she'll iafce §004 ca^e h, e M have that shince, Well '- that ' • - • Princess Louis Lorinoff! By JoVe, I don't envy Monsieur le Prince! Not a bit of it—not even for half a million of money. And I'm to keep out of his Way. Well, I'll obey that command with all the pleasure in life. And I'm not to marry before I'm forty— that's what it amounts to practically. Well, I don't know that I mind that very much—do I? Ah! well, I don't so much know about that—I " and then he stopped short and fell into a sort of dream, a dream of himself walking along a country road and beside him—"and, oh! damnation," said Dick Aylmer aloud, "what did the old brute want to write to me for?" Ho struck a match and set flre to the letter; then a sudden thought occurred to him and he crushed the flame out and locked the letter carefully away in his dispatch box. "I may find that remark about marrying again useful," he said to himself. "Anyway, best to keep it." But though he had locked the letter away he could not put the thoughts of it away from him as easily. Indeed, it kept coming back to him again and again, particularly that one unpalatable sentence about him waiting till he was forty before he need expect his uncle to hear of his marrying under a certain amount of dower with the bride. Now, Dick Aylmer Was utterly Ignorant of the circumstances in which the little girl of his dream was placed. She might have a dower, It might be large or small, he did not know; and on the other hand, it was more than likely that she had not so much as a penny in the world. Somehow, although he had never been within the precincts of Graveleigh Hall, he had an idea that it was a place without much money behind it. True, the beds in front of the house were gay with flowers and the house was largo and of a certain appearance. But the hedges which skirted the sloping meadow were none too well kept; the entrance gates needed a coat of paint badly, and had apparently got well used to the necessity; the drive was not very well kept, and altogether he fancied that Dorothy Strode's dower would be but a thing of small importance compared with his uncle's idea of what Dick's wife ought to be possessed of. Now, I may as well say here that Dick Alymer had made Up his mind to marry the little girl of his dream. It might be sooner or it might be later, but he meant to do it all the same. If he could get her sooner—why, he would; and if he could not get her as soon as he wanted her—why, he would SET FIRE TO THE LETTER, have to wait; but as for waiting till his savage old uncle chose to say "yea or nay"—why, the idea was simply preposterous, and Dick put it aside at once as a contingency which could not be considered for a moment. After all, his marriage was ,his business, his and nobody else's on his side; he meant to marry to please himself, and his uncle could go to the deuce if he liked. After all, if he did marry her or any other girl that he chose to marry, and his uncle cut up rough over it, what could he do? He could, and probably would, stop his allowance immediately. But then he had absolutely no guarantee that the old savage might not from mere caprice do that at any moment, when he would have no other course open to him but to exchange into a regiment serving in.; India, and live on his pay. So that; after all, what was the good of his depending too much on his uncle, who would, if his wife happened to die,, assuredly marry again on the chance of having an heir who would cut him out of his heritage? All the same, Dick Alymer did not .think that there >vas the remotest chance of his uncle's wife leaving the way clear for a successor—her ladyship was at least fifteen years younger than her lord, $nd was a woman of aggressively good health, which she kept in perfect order by living by line rule; and he reminded'himself that beyond stopping his allowance and possibly having another heir, Lord Aylmer was Absolutely powerless to leave one stick or stone away from him—the property must go with the title to the heir who was to follow him, . 4 couple of days went by, and Dick Ayijmer had almost forgotten his un- cie's letter in the pleasure of apticipa- and by the time be turned. o\it of barrack gates, bovwd fpr Grare- JJaU tQ mafce. bis loriaaj pajlj up- o» porotby Strop's &U»t< he W ft8 J» § a py p4 UgWfttn* a ^fiftd jp he. J+ad ever been in in all his Ufa. And, oh! by Jove, he reminded himself that he had forgotten, or more correctly he had never known, what the old lady's name was. Dorothy had called her "auntie." and he had naturally said "your aunt," and he had come away without knowing .what her name and state were, whether she was wife, widow or maid. However, he did not let that trouble him much, and he drove gayly along between the sweet wild hedgerows.feel- ing as if the soft September air, Just tempered with a breeze off the sea, was air of an Arcadian land, and such objectionable persons as aristocratic relations did not exist in all the world. And then when he reached Graveleigh, the long straggling village street with its quaint old-world shops and its odd little postofflce, he pulled up the good horse and stopped to make inquiries. "Can you tell me where Graveleigh Hall is?" he asked of a respectable woman. "Why, yes. sir—you do go along.,ttiat road and take the first turn to the right and then yo do come to it," she replied. "Ah, thanks. By-the-bye, what is the name of the lady who lives there?" he asked, carelessly. "Miss Dimsdale, she do live at the Hall," the woman replied. "And Miss Dorothy, she do live with her." "Thank you very much," said Dick, pleasantly. The good woman watched him as he drove along. "Another of 'em after Miss Dorothy," she said to herself. And Dick drove gaily along, getting more and more light hearted as he went; for was he not getting nearer and nearer with every stride of old Derby's legs to her? But he did not get to the hall without being further, watched. Scarce was he past the eml : of the village before he met David Stevenson, wearing the light clothes and gaiters of a country gentleman who looks after his own farming, and David scowled at him murderously. Happily Dick neither saw his rival nor his black looks, and drove on, flicking like a schoolboy at the hedges as he passed. "Brutal interloper!" David growled out between his strong teeth, as he stood leaning over the gate, watching the retreating dog-cart. "Going there, of course." (To he continued.) Frederick tlio Grout and Ilia Doge. Frederick the Great's fondness for dogs amounted to a passion. He always had five or six Italian greyhounds about him, leaping upon chairs arid sleeping on the couches in his room. During his last illness he used to .sit on the terrace at Sans SoucI and always had a dog at his side occupying another chair. He fed them himself, played with them and permitted them to tear, to their heart's content, his damask chairs and otherwise injure the furniture, saying: "My.dogs destroy my chairs; if I have them mended today, they would be torn agiui tomorrow, so I suppose I must bear with the inconvenience." One of Frederick's dogs, Biche, attained historic celebrity. It is stated that the king took Biche with him on-the campaign of 1745. One day the king, -ul- vancing on a reconnoissance, was surprised and pursued by the Austrians. He took refuge under a bridge, and, wrapping Biche in his cloak, held him to his breast. The sagacious dog seemed fully conscious of the peril of his master, and though of a nervous temperament and disposed to bark at the slightest disturbance, he remained perfectly quiet until the Austrians had passed. At the battle of Sohr, Biche was taken captive with the king's baggage. So ;nuch joy did the dog manifest upon being restored to his master that the king's eyes were flooded with tears. Travelers visit the tombs of these famous dogs. In front of r.he palace at Sans Souci are flat stones, each having-engraved upon it the iiama of a dog. Bolting Our Food, There is undoubtedly a great deal to be said in favor of the opinion that a considerable portion of the illness in this country is caused by the unpleasant habit of eating too rapidly. Of course we all know, and have at times a very painful experience of, the fact that this is a high pressure age, and all is dono at express speed, but this surely ought not to be the case with our meals. It is interesting, but not pretty, to watch the business man when he goes Into a restaurant for his luncheon. It is with him looked upon in the light of a duty and not a pleasure. He must eat, and he feels that he has only a few minutes to devote to the operation, so that he may be back at his office with all possible speed. He attacks his food savagely, gulps down his beer or wine, and when the last sad rites are over he pays and bolts—in fact, it is a case of bolting from beginning to end. Every doctor .will tell you that people should eat slowly, and occupy the time pleasantly with conversation. In this way we shall live longer and enjoy better health and greater ability to cope with the world.—New York Ledger, Wrtshiria-tdh.

Many western inventors have availed, themselves of the advantages of such a business place that has boon continuously advertised ns the li lo\va Patent Oflice." A property right has been acquired in the. name just as the "United States Express Co." and the "Iowa State Register" have, by long usage, gained, title to their names. In addition to the right gained by long usage, under Iowa law relating to tidvertlsing, we secured a certificate bearing 1 the seal of state that gives us an exclusive right to the nama of our work shop and oflice. To doprive iisof our right, G W. Sues, oJ Omaha, who was discharged from oui employ, made complaint against oiu manner of advertising.

As war with Spain has broken out cho officials seem to think that all that will be needed is warships, toiv pedo boats and other instruments, of destruction. But really what will be needed more than anything else is a ood supply of "5 DROPS" (manufactured by the Swanson Rheumatic Cure !o., 167 Dearborn street, Chicago 111.),;o knock out the Rheumatism which is sure to grip our soldiers, and sailors in the miasmatic climate of Cuba and the surrounding islands,, where the war will be waged. The truth is that something to heal and cure is precisely what is needed right now in the desolated "Queen of the Antilles." Those 200,000 reconcentrados reported sick and dying by hundreds need provisions, it is true, but they need good medicines fully as much. If Miss Barton, the good lady who has charge of the Red Cross relief work, 'was supplied with "5 DROPS" she could, by their agency, save many a sick .Cuban. These miraculous "5 DROPS" conquer many of the worst diseases that afflict ailing humanity, such as Rheumatism, Neuralgia, the excruciating Sciatica and the other diseases for which it is recommended. The War Department should see that there is an abundant supply of "5 DROPS" in tile medicine chests.

The I*wa State Register, referring? to the monument; reared by the HaWkeye Insurance company of Des Moines, "which, fe-a statewide monument, because its business covers all of lo-ws and is confined to the state," writes as follows: "It will be noticed that the monument wa» reared y&U 1 hy year, and that there is not a yekr that does not show an increase of business since the organization of the company in 1866, nearly one-third of a century,, and that there has been an average increase nearly equal to> the first year s business during each of the years tne company has been in existence. That Is a splendid record, and The Register takes pleasure in placing it before the people of the state as an example ol the manner by which any well managed business can be made popular with' the people of the state, and as success* fttl as a similar business- interest in. any other state.. "The Hawkeye Insurance company, le exclusively an Iowa institution and every dollar paid to that company for insurance against fire, .lightning,, high winds and tornadoes, remains in the etate to aid in the building up of Iowa business and labor; It is officered and managed by Iowa men who have prido- and interest in. their own state, and desire to aid in making loiwa all that the state can be made as the chief agricultural and manufacturing state of the world. No one hais ever attempted to> deny that Iowa is the chief agricultural state of the world; the official statistics prove that Iowa produces more bread' and meat than, any other, state or country of equal area on the earth; and Iowa will become the chief manufacturing state of the world when the shop> workers and fowl producers have been brought together on Iowa's peerless plains, where food' and 1 fuel) are- cheapen than In any other state. "The monument of the- Hawlteyfe Insurance company shows that the assets- of that company reached:$28,617.14 during its first year, 1866; and increased year by year until' they reached $798>~ 960.72 in 1897. Compare the assets of the two years-, l'S66 and-. 1897, and : yow will be convinced of the steady growth of this sterling Iowa company, and the* absolute safety of all the policy holders of that company.. It is a monument of which all Iowa can be pro 'id and every policy holder shouM be proud that he has aided iin building up a flro and 1 storm insurance company in Iowa that is as strong and; safe as any insurance. company of any other state or country. The company has a capital stock of$100,000 total assets of $798,960.72, and; a; net surplus of$320,058.53, in excess of gross liabilities, including re-insuranca reserve and capital, and the surplus as. regards policy holders Is $420,058.53'. These are the official figures for the year 1897.

"The Hawkeye Insurance Company ia one of the chief business interests of Iowa, and one of the best safeguards of the people of the state. It has good competitors in its line of business, and there is unlimited opportunity for the organization of other companies to compete for the insurance of the people of the state. There has been and will be growling against the insurance companies, just as there is against all &ther business interests, but Iowa has is well managed and; safe fire insurance companies as any other state or couu- Iry, and the millions of dollars aauual- ty sent out of the state for fire insurance should be retained in Iowa, and ivill be when the people of the state be- iome fully loyal to their own interests.

Never a line on The Register's editorial page has been paid. lor, but The Register has entered upon 1 life mission to induce the people of towa to unite to build up the state by fratronizing their own instutlons, and it is speaking of the Haiwkeyo Insur-t Unce company as one of the best and safest institutions of the state, because !ts editor personally knows of the facta stated, notwithstanding he is not now a.nd never has been connected with that company, nor had any pecuniary Interest therein whatever, except a fire Insurance policy upon The Register property. That is the best test, and The Register will be pleased to extend editorial commendation to any legiti-v mate, helpful and safely managed business interest in the state.
