Dealers in Hard and H1 ^ Sof t Coai: Manufacturers of Strictly High-gi ade Flour. Special attention paid to the The suit of John Connors of LuVerne against the Northwestern railway for damages to his farm done by fire, which he claimed was set out by section men, occupied nearly the whole of Judge Helsell's term of court. It was the most hotly contested law suit that has been tried In Algona in a long time, and will doubtless go to the supreme court, as the law questions are very close. Mr. Wheeler of Cedar Rapids, who tried the Jones county calf case 16 times, was assisted by Sullivan & McMahon for the company, Clarke & Cohenour and Frank Miles of Livermore for Mr. Connors. The jury went out Saturday afternoon and came in late in the night with a verdict of $275 for Connors. The question in the case of most public interest was the damage fire does to a peat slough. Mr. Connors asked $2,000 damage for the burning of 60 acres of peat. A careful survey showed only 25 acres burned. The company had Mr. Pearsons of Fort Dodge, Con- Owlnir to the large and constantly increasing demand for our superior grade of flour we uwmg to lne K«» ofler f / om 5 to 10 cents per bushel above the market price for good wheat. ff. W. DINGLE Y, Manager. gressman Dolllver's father-in-law, who drained and is farming Mud Lake in Humboldt county, up to testify. He said that the fire that burns the peat off benefits the land, and that the first thing he did to Mud Lake was to burn it out after he drained It. He testified at some length. On the other hand Geo. W. Hanna of LuVerne, A. D. Clarke, and others acquainted with our peat said they would not have it burned off for anything. Henry Curran has a case exactly like Mr. Connors' but the court did not incorporated town of Whlttomore. The court so ordered, they to pay their share of the town indebtedness. A. B. Dunlap got a default against Z. S. Barrett for $480. Clarke & Cohon- our appeared for Barrett and had the default set aside. Burgess Bros, took a default against C. J. Brown for $337.68 on an old note given before Brown came to Algona. E. Chrlsohllles and Mr. Ostrander had some misunderstanding over a horse trade at Whittemoreand Maggie Ostrander sued to replevin her husband's horse. She dismissed the o/ise at her own costs. A permit was granted to D. J. Walters to dispense liquors at Germania. B. F. Reed was his attorney. The suit of M. Richardson vs. Mart. Ferris was dismissed at plaintiff's costs. In the suit of Hartgraves vs. Thompson an order was issued that the justice, from whose court it was appealed, furnish a more complete record. There was no time to try the $15,000 suit of Aug. Dinger against R. N. Bruer, and it goes over. E. V. Swott- ing IsDinger's attorney. The Ledyard school tuition case was not tried. Court meets again in November and Judge Helaell ordered the same grand jury to be present the first day of the term for duty. THE LOCAL FIELD. Saturday and Sunday are to be given up to the Baptists. The Saturday services will be for the church members. Sunday all are Invited. .In the morning Rev. John A. Earl of Waterloo will preach and in the evening Rev. H. L. Stetson of Des Moines. The purpose of the meetings is to raise money to dispose of the debt on the church. Our readers who are curious to know what the Mormons really believe will enjoy the account of their beginnings given in this issue by Parley Williams, one of the evangelists now in Algona. They claim that what we call the mound builders were really part of the lost tribes of Israel and that the book WAS MERELY A HISTORY. THE BOOK OF MORMON EXPLAINED. Parley 'Williams Says It is a Record of the Ancient Inhabitants of This Continent. Inasmuch as it Is asserted by some who are unacquainted with the facts In the case that the Book of Mormon is used by the Latterday Saints to supplant the bible, and that the spirit and teachings of the former are contrary to those of the latter, it seems proper to show what the Book of Mormon is, realizing that It has been less understood and more misrepresented than any publication which has ever appeared. The Boole of Mormon was first published in 1830, and is a record of the ancient inhabitants of the American continent. When the Lord confounded the languages at Babel, (Gen. 11, 9) He led forth a colony from thence, which crossed the ocean in eight vessels and landed in America. They inhabited America for about 1,500 years. They were at length totally destroyed for their wickedness, about 600 years before Christ. A prophet by the name of Ether wrote their history and an account of their destruction, which he lived to see; and he deposited his record the resurrection and eternal judgment. Historically it explains the existence of the ruins, cities, temples, aqueducts, etc., which have been discovered In recent years, as well as the industrial pursuits of the people, their wars and contentions, and gives an excellent reason for the belief of the Indians in a supreme being or Great Spirit, and for their traditions of the crucifixion of Christ, his death, his appearing la their midst, his miracle working, and shows how it was possible for them to represent in curious paintings, before the advent of Columbus, Christ's death and descent into hades. It explains the Saviour's meaning when he said, " Other sheep have I which are not of this fold." (John 10,16.) As to the long exploded yet oft repeated traditional story of the origin of the Book of Mormon in the manuscript of Solomon Spaulding, I would say Prof. James H. Falrchild, president of Oberlin college, wrote a letter which appeared In the New York Observer of February 5, 1885, wherein he says: " Mr. Bice, myself and others compared the Spaulding manuscript with the Book of Mormon and could detect no resemblance between the two, in general or in detail; there seems to be no name nor incident common to the two." The Spaulding manuscript is in the library of Oberlin college, Ohio. Rev. C. M. Hyde, D. D., of the North Pacific Missionary Institute, in an article to the Boston Congregationalist gave the history of the Spaulding manuscript from the beginning, and after showing the attempts of Hulburt Howe and others to connect It with the Book of Mormon says: "The story has not the slightest resemblance in names, in- NSURANGE.

A sensational suit is brought by McCarthy & Donnelly of St. Paul against a lot of the members and trustees of the Whittemore Catholic church to collect $114 for goods bought by Father Tierny, the local priest. Alex. Dorweiler heads the defendants. The petition states that Father Tierny bought the goods for the church and that the trustees and members ratified the purchase by using the goods. Bonar & Fellows bring the suit, while O'Connor of Emmetsburg Is assisted by Sullivan & McMahon for moat of the defendants. At this term P. Weir, Phil. Engler, and P. H. Jennett made no defense and a default judgment was taken against them. The other defendants compelled the plaintiff to put up a $100 coat bond a revelation to their a curious theory, at , QOO. .<X.L n-rwuM .«>., IO"W.A.. ev loaned, foreign and domestic exchange bought and sold.

As the three who have defaulted are perfectly good for the amount the case will probably go no further, unless enough bad blood exists in the church to make a personal matter of It, in which caae the rest of the defendants will probably have to fight. THREE INDICTMENTS. The grant jury indicted W. S. Frost, the Whittemore landlord, for selling beer. He was bpund aver after a lively hearing before 'Squire Clarke along In the summer. Mrs. Dixaon or Sugar Molly waa also indicted. She ia now said to be in Des Moines, and no attempt will probably be made to bring her back. The indictment will serve to keep her out of Koa- suth. She is charged with keeping a disorderly houae. Henry Larson broke into Marv. Cady's hay wagon last summer out la Letts Creek and stole a whip and watch. He ia indicted and is under arrest. The court fixed his bond at $200. COURT NOTES. John Far-veil and others asked to have their property excluded from the and will be well bedded In sand. This makes as handsome and durable a walk aa can be made in thia climate. The work will be done this fall. The Brltt fair had over 6,000 paid admissions one day laat week. Al. Gilson, Algona's old-time poker expert, had the chief gambling privilege at $350, and beer was sold more or leaa openly. The agricultural and stock exhibit wasn't much, but the aoolety comes out $1,900 ahead. Such fairs make money, but don't elevate the tone of the community. The Kossuth fail- has kept even without the aid of gambling and fakes. Prof. Spencer ia arranging a courae of popular entertainments and lectures for the winttef. It will be given in the opera house and will open with the Boston Ladies' Symphony orchestra of 25 pieces, which comes Nov. 1. The other four features are a music and song evening by Brook-Smiley, lectures by Bishop Vincent, Will Carleton, and Dr. Willetts. Tickets for the course will be sold at $1, which is exceedingly low. The entertainments will be about a month apart. where it was found" by a colony of Israelites, who came from Jerusalem 600 years before Christ and repeopled America. This last colony were descendents of the tribe of Joseph. They grew and multiplied and finally gave rise to two mighty nations. One of these nations was called Nephites—one Nephi being its founder. The other was called Lamanltes, after their leader Laman. The Lamanites became a dark and benighted people, of whom the American Indians are still a remnant, The Nephltes were an enlightened and civilized people, a people highly favored of the Lord. They had visions, angels, and the gift of prophesy among them from age to age, and finally they were blessed with a personal appearance of the Lord Jeaus Christ, after his resurrection, from whose mouth they received the doctrine of the gospel taught by him, and a knowledge of the future down through all succeeding ages. But after all the blessings and privileges conferred upon them, they fell into great wickedness in the third or fourth centuries after Christ, and finally were destroyed by the Laman- ltes about 400 years after Christ. Among the Nephites of that age was a prophet of the Lord named Mormon. By the commandment of the Lord he made an abridgment of the sacred records which contained the history of his forefathers and the prophecies and gospel which has been revealed among them, and a sketch of the history of his own time and the destruction of his nation. Previous to his death the abridged record made by Mormon fell Into the hands of his eon, (whose name was Moroni) who continued them down to A. D. 420, when he carefully hid them in the earth on a hill called by them Cumorah, which is in Manchester township, Ontario county, New York, to keep them from being destroyed by the Lamanitos. This record lay concealed from A. D. 420 till Sept. 22,1823, at which time it was found by Joseph Smith, he being directed there by an angel of the Lord. The teachings of the Book of Mormon confirm those of the bible; especially ia thia true with reference to the four gospels by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. It strengthens and o the doctrines Q f faith in repentance, baptism by the remission ot " hands for con cidents or style to anything in the Book of Mormon." An examination of the Book of Mormon will discloae the fact that it confirms the truth of the bible and its teachings', and the researches of aroh- oeologists have already done much to confirm its truth as a record of nations that have inhabited America, hut through their disobedience to the commandments of the Lord they were destroyed. PARLEY WILLIAMS. Uuloii Services Sunday. There will be union services at the Baptist church next Sunday. Rev. John A. Earl of Waterloo will preach in the morn- Ing and Rev. Dr. Stetson of Des Moinea college in the evening. The public is cordially invited to these services. The Algona Baptists are making an heroic effort to lift the mortgage off their house of worship, and take this method of giving their friends an opportunity to help. There is perhaps no city in Iowa of its size that can boast of as many fine church edifices as Algona, when those now in process of erection are completed. These beautiful structures are ornaments to our olty, and enhance the value of all our property; while the influence of these churches holds up and improves the. character of our society, and makes this one of the moat delightful places in the state for homes. Surely alt the people are interested in their prosperity, and will be glad now to help in this noble enterprise.
