To the alumni of the school, and to all citizens of Algona who had the pleasure of meeting him at the alumni banquet held here three years ago, this news will bring an unpleasant shock. He was in the very prime of life, a man of magnificent physique and splendid health. President Sehaeffer came to the state university in August, 1887. During his 10 years' administration the school has more than doubled in attend* ance, while its growth in standing and importance has been in still greater proportion. He was a man of great executive ability and thorough college training. He knew what kind of a school Iowa ought to have and he knew how to measurably approach his ideals with the limited resources at hand. His services have been invaluable, and his place will be hard to fill just at this time when with new buildings and opportunities the school is still in reality in its formatiye period. President Sohaeffer's training had been of the best. He graduated at the university of Pennsylvania in 1861, was in Harvard college from 1863 to 1865, was assistant in chemistry in Union college from 1865 to 1867, then spent a year in the university of Gottingen, and a year in the school of mines in Berlin, Germany. In 1869 he was elected professor of chemistry in Cornell college, Ithaca, N. Y., where he remained 13 years, or until he came to Iowa City. His talents' were not of the showy order. In fact first acquaintance often failed to reveal them. But no one gained a close acquaintance with him without a growing feeling of respect for the man, and of appreciation for his solid abilities and broad culture. The marked characteristic of President Sehaeffer was his unfailing courtesy. No worry fretted him to an ex- 'hibition of ill temper. He met his trials, and they are multitudinous in college management, with that urbanity which is the choicest flower of true culture. It is not indifference nor a withdrawal from the contest, but a mastery of the art of doing things. President Sehaeffer had his own way, with professors and students and regents, because he had a tact that amounted to genius. The influence of men on their own and succeeding generations is in the main unconscious. It is not what we decide to accomplish, but what we in fact are that leaves something to the heredity of the race. What President Sehaeffer taught to the students of the past 10 years at the university will fade from memory quickly enough. But what close contact with President Sehaeffer has done for the culture of the students of the university will not fade, but will widen in its influence in their after lives. They will forget their chemistry and their Latin, but they will never lose the consciousness that politeness, consideration for the opinions and convictions of others, and good breeding are everywhere and always the most efficient allies a man can have, however heated and bitter the contests in life he may engage in, to get President McKlnley to again corns to his t*08cuG Ths WAI* ofiicimlB violently oppose letting the 3rd Nebraska be disbanded, because Nebraska should furnish its share of soldiers, and Col. Bryan's friends very correctly advise him that it will make him ridiculous to resign and leave his soldiers to go to the front alone. NEWS AND COMMENT. Congressman Cousins gave an ornate and fitting oration at the Iowa day exercises at Omaha. Eight out of 11 members of the committee on rcsolutlona at the democratic state convention voted not to mention the liquor issue. The Davenport Democrat is correct when it says that the democracy as now led invites prohibitionists to vote the ticket if they believe in 16 to 1. The ok democracy is not in it. Ben Salinger, Iowa's talented su preme court reporter, has the reports up to date, the first time in very many years He has been a worker in his office, and be sides {bringing up the back reports hai made many improvements In the methods of indexing and reprinting. Mr. Salinge: was renomlnated at Dubuque by acclama tion. Geo. E. Roberts of Fort Dodge has fully enough recovered from his illness to b( about again. He hopes to return to Wash ington the first of the month to resume his duties. He left the capitol in April, and for a time his life wns despaired of, but his vitality is good and the Lord had work foi him still to do. He is very much in earnes in having the republican campaign con ducted this fall in behalf of currency re form. IN THIS NEIGHBQBHOOD. The Humboldt Independent says Mrs. O. J. Hack was at last accounts so sick as to be confined to her bed. A. B. Tuttle, who came to Clear Lake in 1856, died at Mason City last week at the age of 73 years. John Cullen of Whlttemore, Goeders' old-time clerk, is to be married to Miss Biddie Mulroney of Emmetsburg. Rev. A. A. Wilcox, who has preached all about in this part of Iowa, will retire and make his permanent home at Estherville. Surveyors have run a railway line from Mason City across to Blue Earth City, Minn. It looks as though a new road was in the air. Emmetsburg Reporter: B. W. Haggard of Algona was an Emmetsburg visitor Saturday. He came over to look after some business matters. Charlie Elinendorf, who used to frequent Algona years ago, Is now general manager of the Kimball piano company with headquarters at Minneapolis. The Ouija board has found some stolen property at Emmetsburg that the detectives had given up.- Somebody who had his hands on the board has a divining mind. Humboldt Independent: A large delegation of our local Eastern Star were at Algona. They had a most enjoyable time, as Algona fraters are royal entertainers. Rev. Mason, who preached in Algona for the Congregationalists and who afterwards went as chaplain for the 49th regiment, is barely able to be He has had a close call. up. What They Stand For. The Ruthven Free Press, published at the home of Ed. Anderson, the fusion candidate against Congressman' Dolliver, says very truly that Mr, Anderson's defeat should be as decisive as possible because of the principles he represents. " He represents false theories unsupported by facts, figures or history; he stands for experiments that would prove disastrous to the welfare of the American people were they to be put into operation." The Free Press says that Mr. Anderson's personal popularity should not Wind a single voter in his own town or county to the real issue. Col, Bryan's Troubles. William J, Bryan's military career lias not been altogether satisfactory. He has been a little behindhand from the start. His regiment was not organized until Nebraska's full quota had been mustered into the service, and it was only through President McKinley's complacency that he was allowed to become a colonel at all. Then after his regiment had been included in the Manila expedition, in order that he might see active service, bis friends raised a great cry that it was 8> .scheme to get him put of the country, and so he was sent to Jacksonville, thereby m}es< ing a chance to be in an engagement Then after peace was declared before it dawned on, hie mind that he might not want to go to Cuba to do garrison two Other ffebrajfca, regiments got their applioajtions to be disbatjded, and feji wag ftpwy of #9 w af |er everybody ejgp is fl$e4 Robt. Struthers, who located in Pocahontas county in 1857, is dead in his 69th year. He was a member of the legislature that adopted the code of 1873. He was well known to all Kossuth pioneers. Ray Osborne has been very sick with typhoid at D. Rice's in Plum Creek. Last week Geo. D. Osborne, his father, and Dr. G. W. Clark came from Humboldt to see him. Dr. Tribon has brought him through. Buffalo Center has announced a street fair to occur at their place Sept. 28 and 29. There is a barbecue dinner to be served, a program consisting of various kinds of races, and many prizes are offered for exhibitions. E. V. Sherman, brother of Thos. Sherman of Bancroft, is up from his fever and goes to Huntsville, Ala., to report for duty. He is a member of the hospital corps and will probably spend the winter in Cuba. He is looking well after his long sickness. Emmetsburg will vote Oct. 20 on an electric light franchise. A Mr. McNamara of Fulton, 111., will put in a plant if the'oity will pav $1,200 a.,year for 20 arc lights. He puts a rate of 45 cents a month on 16 candle power in- candescents. Algona by putting in her own plant will beat both of these rates. Burglars Friday night entered the residences of A. M. Ringheira, Rev. J. W. Innes and Mrs. B. Ringheim at Nevada. The Representative says: Mr. Innis heard the burglar come up the stairs and made a demonstration, whereupon the burglar suddenly left without looking up or taking anything. FOLITIOAL NOTES. A meeting was held at Fort Dodge, last Wednesday fc) lay out the "republican campaign in the Tenth. Congressman Dolliver will make a thorough campaign. Victor B. Dolliver opens the campaign in Lincoln, Neb,, Bryan's home town. It is the opening speech of the Nebraska campaign. After that he stamps Minnesota, Estherville Republican; J. W. Sullivan, democratic candidate for district judge, was up from Algona yesterday visiting bis cousin, Engineer Pat Sullivan, and looking over the political field, The populists decided in Palo Alto not to ask for any place pa the fusipn county ticket. 0. E. Cohopij's nomination for judge was made to get their support for a straight democratic county ticket. One of the first big meetings to be held in the Eleventh dJstriof will be a republican rally at Steu* City. This will £e held., on Qet, U t m& ml Ue the Jlty and make one of the speeches. Judge Thomas will probably be the other principal speaker. Congressman Dolliver astonished Speaker Reed once by telling him that he had a bigger majority than Thomas B. had. The Tenth district gives as big a republican majority as any in the United States. Al. Adams says: Mr. Cohoon is ah old friend of the editor of this paper and if he was elected we believe we could hold him down, but under the circumstances we do not want to add to our responsibilities. Pocahontas Record: Judge Helsell when on the bench fills the expectations of his friends, being at once dig nified and courteous, and at all times the taxpayer's friend, urging the speedy termination of all cases. Estherville Democrat: Attorney J. W. Sullivan of Algonn, democratic candidate for judge in this district, is in town today on political business. He Is a fine appearing gentleman and is meeting with great encouragement in his canvass of the district. Spirit Lake Beacon: In answer to reckless criticism THE UPPER DES MOINES, whose editor was a member thereof, Insists that the conduct of Gov. Gear as a member of the committee on resolutions at the state convention was most exemplary, in fact quite faultless. All of which Is as true as gospel. Davenport Democrat: J. P. Dolliver will return to congress from the Tenth district. He is opposed by C. Norelius. populist, and Ed. Anderson, democrat, and with the latter weakened by the state platform, whose stigma lie cannot escape, the sliver tongued orator has a cinch with a diamond hitch. Iowa republicans owe much to Marshalltown for her part In the holocaust that is now raging among the Iowa democrats. NEWS NOTES. Webster City will build a new water tank. They prefer a tank to a standpipe. Emmetsburg gets $6,000 annually as mulct taxes, according to the Democrat. A half fare railroad rate will be given for the Des Moines carnival, which begins Oct. 3. The Cherry sisters have ,qult the stage. At Anita lately not one ticket was sold for their show. Hamlin Garland, the novelist, who got his start over near Osage, has barely escaped starving to death on a trail in the Klondike. The liquor dealers of the state have held a convention at Marshalltown and adopted resolutions looking to making their business more respectable. Clay county votes this fall on putting up a $40,000 court house. The old building in Spencer is the shabbiest in the state, and a disgrace to the county. Dr. Greene, elected Episcopalian bishop of Iowa, is a base ball expert and an all around athlete, besides being a jovial society man. He was originally a Presbyterian in Chicago, but his love of sports alienated his flock. His choice as bishop will -be bitterly contested. Of Win. Wilson, grand receiver of the A. O. U. W., H.'A. Burrell writes in the Washington Press: We shall never see just the like of Mr. Wilson. He was unique, and filled a niche peculiarly his own. He was a good man, and that phrase is the sum or quintessence of all eulogy. A curious incident of the war is reported. A huge waterspout In mid- ocean thaeatened to engulf the transports to Cuba. The Iowa pursued the marine monster, discharged the biggest guns at it, and actually blew the waterspout to pieces, doubtless saving hundreds of lives thereby. The first assistant postmaster-general has ordered the establishment of rural free delivery in the country surrounding the postoffice at Webster City, Iowa. The delivery of mail in the section mapped will be done by five carriers. The area to be covered is about 100 square miles and the population of the free delivery district 1,770. The latest base ball story runs that when the news came to the Chickamauga hospital of the destruction of Cervera's fleet one of the nurses commenced to read it aloud. He got as far as the statement that the Brooklyn had been hit 45 times, when a fever patient a little out of his head shouted, "Great God! Who pitched for Brooklyn?" Waterloo has a sensation in the. marriage of Carl F. Kuehnle, Sr., to Mrs. Ida Weld. The groom is 68 years of age. He is the father of Carl F. Kuehnle, Gov. Shaw's law partner at Denison. The bride is a widow of about two weeks' standing. She had applied for a divorce from her husband at the present term of court, but a day or so after the papers were filed she was released from the bonds with him by the hand of death. The family of the groom protested against the marriage, but in vain. The old gentleman declared he was old enough to know a good thing, and knew exactly what he wanted to do. The marriage followed. Kuehnle has lived there for a number of years. He owns considerable property, and is considered well situated financially, PQBTOf FIOE BOX BENTS.

In this connection it will interest local readers to learn that Algona district led in the advance made in the missionary offerings, with Sheldon district a close second, and that Algona district is the only district making an increase in each benevolent offering. The Algona church presented the best report in totals of money raised, and made the distinguished record of advancing in very offering in addition to carrying its new building enterprise. This record easily gave a commanding position to Algona district in the conference and at the same time gives Algona church thestandingofthemostde- slrable point in the-conference. KEY. WALTER WALKER. Has a Call to tlio First Baptist Church of Des Mollies. Yesterday's Des Moines papers announce that Rev. Walter Walker has received a call to the First Baptist church of that city. He la now located at Elgin, 111., but the call is likely to be accepted. People here take a lively interest in Rev. Walker and his work, since this was his home from early boyhood up to the time he entered the ministry, in which he has done such excellent work. The Register says: Dr. Walker preached here Sunday. He delivered a masterly effort. He is a man of brains. He will fill Dr. Tllden's place. He Is about 36 years of age and has a wife and child.
