THE tJPPBfl M28 MOtNJES; ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 1898. AT SANTIAGO, ttOMB OS A 30-DAf -.Sees But Little Difference Between Cnbans and Spaniards—General County Matters. Louie Buftis was In Algonalast week. Be was home from Jacksonville, Fla. He was with the army at Santiago, and tells the LuVerne News an interesting story of his experiences. The News says: He belongs to Company D of the 20th regiment, regular army, and has beeb is the service 8j months, having joined the first of last February at Fort Leavebworth, Kan. From there the regiment went to Mobile, where it remained in camp until June 1st, and then went on transports for Santiago, stopping at Key West and Jacksonville on the way. It took them about eight days on the water to reach Santiago, and then they did not have a chance to land but were kept on the transports 17 days. Louie says he was so sea sick he hardly knew day from night, and the other boys were no better off. Hie regiment was not in any of the fighting at Santiago, but was in the trenches for 48 hours, and during that time all he had to eat and drink was two hardtacks and a canteen of water. Some of his regiment were killed by shells dropping in the trenches. He was at Santiago nine days, and was then taken sick and sent to Key West. From there he went to Miami and then to Jacksonville, where he remained till he started for home. Louie could not see much difference between the Cubans and Spaniards. The Cubans would kill every wounded Spaniard they had a chance at, and nothing was too small for them tosteal. The Spaniards would shoot at anybody, and his company had two boys killed who were serving in the hospital corps. He has a 30-day furlough and will visit his parents at Hay field and friends in the county before returning to his regiment at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., 'where it was sent this week from Camp Wikoff. Hurt Monitor. Rev. W. B. Greenshields and family arrived in Burt last Saturday evening. They were all looking well, but they had a stormy passage on their return trip across the ocean. John Madden has sold his fine farm west of town to an Illinois man, who comes on March 1st and will settle among us. It is whispered around that either M. J. Walsh or our L. H. McChesney will be the democratic nominee for recorder. Mr. Calkins has succeeded in selling a number of the Geo. C. Call farms anc . some new and permanent settlers for the county will be the result. Wlilttemore Champion Word is received from T. H. McEnroe at Fargo, N. D., where he has located permanently. Chas. F. Lathrop went to Wisconsin Monday night to take a much needed rest and visit his aged parents. Chas. Minkey of Fenton raised some mammoth cabbages this year. He brought some in town yesterday thai weighed 20 pounds apiece. Bert Salisbury and Joe Niooulin and wives spent Sunday at H. P. Hatch's home renewing old acquaintances. Mr Nicoulin drove his little Shetland E onies from Algona in an hour and alf, which is pretty good time for such a small team; Swea City Herald. A Whittemore dealer found $25 worth of rotten eggs in his purchases a weel ago. My, but Whittemore must be a warm town to ripen eggs like that. A. L. Anderson has become a bloatec bond holder, and, so far as we know, it the only one in town. Monday he re oeived a $20 war bond which he had subscribed for when they were firs offered, and 'it is quite a curiosity to some of the younger generation. Wesley News. The parsonage of Rev.

Mr. Clink stated he was not ready to give an order as he was omewhat unsettled yet. They then ifoposed that he take a drink with hem. and not wishing to appear un- rlendly he partook of the proffered iquor, and soon became slightly under he influence, so that he was induced to ign his name to two papers—orders or notes he don't remember, but from a aint recollection he thinks they were notes and the amount was something over $100. The family are somewhat worried over the matter, and warn all parties through this week's Reporter igainst purchasing any notes given by him. Flossie D KUIIB Fast. Germania Standard: B. F. Smith was in Minneapolis last week with his running horse, Flossie D. Concerning ihe running races the St. Paul Dis- jatch of Sept. 9 says: " The cold wind lad thinned the crowd by the time the running race, half mile heats, was called and but few spectators witnessed ihe closest race of the day. The horses were so closely bunched at the start at /he half to the stretch it was impossible ;o pick the leader. In the stretch C. Q. Redskin led by a length, with Flossie D second and Grover C third; time 49. Flossie D took first by half a .ength in the second, Redskin second, and Gulnera Lochiel third. In the third heat but Flossie D and Redskin started. It was a fight from start to Inish, and neck and neck at that. At ;he wire Redskin stretched his neck and took the heat; time :48i."

WESLEY, Sept. 21.—Monday night at about 11 o'clock Joe Cosgrove was passing the Northwestern elevator and saw some one light a match, He went up to the door to see who it was, when a stranger came out and told him he thought he would come in there and stay all night. Cosgrove told him all right and went for Charley Jones, the manager. They both went back to the elevator to look for him, but he was not to be found. There was nothing missed from the office and the supposition is that it was some tramp looking ing for a place to stay for the night. Will Salisbury of Algona was a Wesley caller Friday.

It Doesn't Cost Anything to Find Out. FENCING— We have an invoice of our SIXTH CAR LOAD of American Field Fencing and Corn Cribbing for this year. The fence will soon be here and we want you Kossuth county farmers to make up your minds to use it freely this fall. Did it ever occur to you that this is a Portable Fencel You can roll it up and move it quicker than you can move one strand of barbed wire. Think of the advantages of having your stock on "fresh feed" during the fall months instead of keeping them in the old summer pasture that is brown and bare. NOW WHAT ELSE?- Knowing that you would become sick of barbed wire we have made a machine with which to wind it up on spools, thus making It easy to move even barbed wire or to put it in shape to sell. With this machine you can wind up or unwind 100 pounds of wire in ten minutes and do it as nicely as it was done at the factory. Price $5. Why should you burn WOOD FOB FUEL?- In so doing you patronize home industry. Wood is a product of this county. We paid $2,000 for wood last winter; the greater part of this money went into the pockets of laborers in Algona, Wood is the best and cleanest fuel. If you will bny a year's supply, the same as you do coal, we will make it the cheapest fuel. Why not let us fill your shed with dry wood before the fall rains commence? We sell PRESSED BRICK- FLUE LINING, SEWER PIPE, Finished Wagon Boxes or the material for a wagon box, Fence Posts and even Hardwood Lumber—but we cannot mention everything here.
