Several Home on Fnrlonghs— Death of Clarence Iiaiie—Condition of the Sick Ones. The county board yesterday arranged to pay the expenses Incurred by Dr. Morse and Mr. Brunson in bringing the soldier boys home, and today will consider paying the expenses where sickness has made a financial burden for parents. We believe the county would endorse the board in making a liberal allowance to every family which has been put to expense by sickness or death of one of our soldier boys. D. A. Haggard sold a car load of Colorado horses at the Northwestern depot Saturday. One team wentat$75, one at $72, and the rest sold singly, all bringing good prices. Mr. Haggard says they were the best western horses he has ever seen and he is arranging to bring more into tha county. If anyone can introduce new stock into Kossuth Mr. Haggard is the man, as his popularity as a salesman continues unabated. It will pay to watch for his next sale. A big crowd witnessed the Wigwam plowing test on Ambrose A. Call's farm last Thursday. The expert sent out pulled the plow cutting a 17-inch furrow with Chas. Korgleder riding. Then Kargleder tried it and pulled the plow with equal ease. A committee consisting of F. J. Kernan, Alonzo D. Clarke andN. Lass took measurements. They found that the sulky plow would do with 440 pounds draft what a walking plow required 560 pounds to do. The test was a big success and the Wigwam is selling a lot of the plows.

Like a Pocket in a Shirt for Convenience— Of Interest to Those who Will Use Electric Lights. Of all the handy things ever invented in connection with electric lighting we doubt if any is more convenient than the simple little article known as the "Cravath Multiple Switch." It was invented by Pitt Cravath, at one time editor of THE UPPER DES MOINES, and well known in Algona. It is about 5 by 7 inches in size, and consists, of a gutta percha board so arranged that all the wires in the house are connected to it on the reverse side. At each connection there is a hole, and for each hole there is a plug, attached with cord so as to hang loose when not in use. By simply inserting the plug into the hole any light desired can be had instantly. This switch board is located on the wall at some central place in the house. Its chief convenience consists in the fact that every light in the house can be handled from it, thus obviating the necessity of going from one point to another tor the purpose of turning on the various lights. By its use any one light can be used, or all, as may be desired. It ia said by electricians to he the best thing of its kind ever invented. One house in Algona is already wired with this switch board, and probably wore will be. A sample switch board may be seen by calling on R. B. Warren, who will furnish all desired.

When the World's Fair at Chicago ceased to exist It was supposed that we should never look upon its like again. However, the Trans-Mississippi Exposition at Omaha has effectively reproduced ifl Similarity all of the buildings which made the White City so attractive in 1893. It does not now take weeks to wander through grounds and structures and then, be compelled to go away with a jumble of ideas, for the Omaha Exposition people have profited by past experience, and have so improved the arrangement of exhibits that no more than two or three days' time need be consumed in admiration and inspection of the marvelous resources of the west, collected together in the chief city of Nebraska. Even the now Midway Is a reproduction of the far-famed Street of All Nations of 1898. with many Improvements upon the original. The electric lighting of the buildings, grounds and lagoon at night makes a scene of enchanting beauty, alone worth traveling a thousand miles to see. The moans of communication between the city and tho grounds are ample, and the distance to be traversed Is short. The ways of reaching Omaha are innumerable, but chief among them la the direct Chicago and Omaha short line of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway, with its electric-lighted, vestlbuled trains.

Some Steel Ranges Are like some men—they have a nice dress, are showy on the outside, but when you become acquainted with them you find that they are "light weights." Placed in the balance they are found wanting. They look like what they are intended for on the outside, but when put to the test you find they do not possess qualities that make friends. \ The Buck's Steel Ranges are like some other men—they have a history, a pedigree, ' You have known their families for fifty years—families that stand for honesty, character, truth. They have weight, solidity, and enduring qualities. The Buck's Steel Ranges are like such men because happy and homes pleasant. Our BUCK'S NO. 26 is an ,ppy and homes pleasant. Our d has all the enduring qualities. they make wives a model of beauty
