THIS tPMB MS MOINES: ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, OGTOBEK 5, 189& HoiioWArs HIGH DIVERS DOtttU GOOD BUSINESS IN KANSAS Astonish Lafge Crowds With Marvellous freats— General Cotmtjr News. Geo. F. Holloway has made a big bit in Kansas with his diving ponies. The Bancroft Register reprints notices from the Wichita papers. The Daily Eagle, ib one notice, says: Yesterday Prof. Solloway brought out his two famous Arabian high-diving horses. They performed admirably and pleased a large crowd who had come especially to see horses that could dive. There was no shoving off the platform nor a drop through the floor, as a great many had expected. The horses followed one another up the chute, stood for a few minutes on the platform and then jumped, making a great splash. There was no one who .vitnessed the dive who did not appreciate it. It was simply wonderful. _ Sweti City Herald. Mr. and Mrs. O. D. Ranks were hero again last week packing up thoir household goods and getting ready to move to Emmetsburg. Mr. Ranks is again on the road for a Chicago commission firm and will make headquarters at Etnmetsburg. If the county fair is not well attended this week it will not bo the fault of Secretary Peek, for he has advertised the event thoroughly through the county. Henry Rodohl, who farmed Geo. L. Roberts 280 farm up in Grant township, made his exit from Iowa before sun up last Thursday, and we are told left some debts in Ledyrtrd, besides owing; nearly every farmer around there for threshing. Victor Ekholm is building a large barn on his farm down in Seneca township. _ HOK Cholera Medicine Well Used. Swea City Herald: Peter Smerliijg, the lightning new life hog cholera man, was mixing up some of his medicine Monday night in the Wilson livery stable when ho dropped his lighted cigar into the vat and immediately the alcohol therein caught lire. It looked like the stable would be fired, but the presence of plenty of water made it possible to extinguish the flames, but Peter got his right hand burned quite severely. _ Burt Monitor. F. W. Jenkinson shipped his full- blooded Shorthorn bull from Burt last Saturday to a stock raiser at Winnebago City, Minn. Ninety dollars was the price secured. Mr. Jenkinson has made numerous profitable sales within the past year from his herd of Shorthorns. Cashier Smith of the new bank may not be a gold standard man but he has had a handsome gold leaf Bign lettered on the big glass front. -Much speculation has been going on as to the cost of the lettering, and guesses haye been made as high as £25. The exact cost was not given out by the bank proprietors when our reporter called, but wo were told the report as to its being expensive is well founded. The Monitor man will wait next year before we letter our windows in the same way. ILedyard .Lender. There wore 17 ear loiuls of bay and grain shipped from this place last Wednesday. Geo. E. Roberts of Fort Dodge, director of the United States mints, was a visitor in north Kossuth the latter part of the week, looking after his real estate interests west of town. Declamatory Contest nt IrvIiiKton. The ladies of the Irvington W. C. T. U. gave a very enjoyableentertainment at the hall in Irvington last Tuesday evening. An opening program was rendered consisting of music and select readings, followed by a prize declamatory contest. Those who took part in the contest wereOHveTrumble, Mamie Blythe, Jennie Webster, Elya Lorenz, and Joe and Harry Mathers. The decision was made by a vote of the audience, and Olive Trumble was awarded the prize by a decided majority, though several of the other contestants gave declamations of excellent thought and showing careful preparation. At the close of the contest refreshments were served and the remainder of the evening was devoted to social enjoyment. May there be many other similiar occasions during the fall and winter is undoubtedly the wish of all who present. Wliltteiuoro Champion. Mark Boyle sat up to the table to eat for the first time yesterday. A bouncing baby boy arrived at the home of Mr. and Mrs. G. C. Ivey of West Bend Monday. The Ayrshire band under the leadership of Hugh R. Smith furnished the music for the Palo Alto fair. John C. Meyer and Maggie Hay OB were quietly married at the Catholic parsonage at 2 p. m., Tuesday.

Germnnta Standard. The telephone poles are up for the line from Wesley, and the wires will be put up this week. There are three farmers who will have it in their homes between here and Wesley. They are C. Reibsamen, Reub Lameroux and Mr. Welter. H. R. Elvidge says he has a patch of corn which will yield 75 bushels per acre. Henry is a truthful man and such a yield is not at all impossible on Kossuth county soil. Bancroft Register. The Algona youngsters came up Saturday afternoon to cross bats with the local juveniles, and were defeated by a score of 2- to 1-. There were other figures following these on the official score keepers pad, but it makes a closer game of it to omit them. The Emmetsburg Democrat alludes to Geo. Boyle as the " savior of the Fifty-second.'" If that title belongs to any of the men who went from here to help the boys, E. C. Anderson should come in for as much credit as any of them. J. G. Smith, who was there while Mr. Anderson wns, says he novel- saw one person doing as much for such a body of men in his life, and that the people up here hod no idea of tho way he worked for their comfort iind health during the week of his stay. IjUVcmo News. The school board at their meeting Sept. 19 decided to purchase a set of Speir number blocks for use in the primary grades. Guy Hiiniui returned Tuesday morning from Minnesota. His furlough was extended to Oct. 22. As yet Guy does not know whether he will be mustered out or not. •Wintlnt Sexton. During the storm last Thursday the wind did considerable damage. It blew down Col. Spencer's and Frank Bacon's barns. It also blew down part of the frame of Ed. Johnson's store building and moved Mac. Sutler's house off its foundation. Down on Mr. Hanson's farm south of town, it moved a hay stack about 30 feet and left it in as good condition as it was before. Grain stacks in this vicinity are blown down, and Mr. Joe Kopesky's windmill wheel was blown oiT. No one realized how severe it was until after it was over. Mr. John Fitch brought his bride home Thursday, and in the evening our tin pan brigade went over to serenade them, but after one or two in- strumontals found them not at home. Wo all wish you joy Just the same, John. Nearly all of our townspeople attended the fair. We hear it rumored that Col. Spencer will build a building here soon. Setting up stoves has been in ordsr this week. Unlley's New Advertising llntes. For calling a man a progressive citizen when everybody knows ho is lazier than a government mule, $2.75.

TOURISTS ABROAD. fhft Money the? Spend Amotinta t<» 8700,000,000 ft Vest. liie amount of money expended by tourists in Europe has, if official records abroad are to be accepted as authentic, increased enormously of late years. There has been recently filed with the Swiss minister of finance and custoins 6t Bern a detailed statement of hotel receipts in that country, from which it appears that the gross receipts of Swiss hotels rose from 52,800,000 francs in 1880 to 114,338,000 in 1894. The entire annual expenses of the Swiss republic amount in a year to between 80,000,000 and 90,000,000 francs (the budget for this year is given at the latter figure), and it would seem, therefore, very much as if the hotels of Switzerland take iia in a year more than the government it- eelf does. The Swiss figures are not the only ones furnished in Europe recently on this point. A French record shows that every year there are 270,000 foreigners who pass from a fortnight to a whole winter on the Riviera. Every person, is supposed to expend on an average 1,000 francs, or $200, in the country. In other words, the foreign visitors spend in the country every winter the sum of $54,000,000. Tho English are put down as contributing one-third of this amount; the French themselves contribute another third; Germans, Belgians, Dutch, Russians and Americans contribute the remainder. From being a poor country when it was annexed to France in 1800 Nice has become one of tho richest departments of the republic. Some figures recently compiled of tho revenues to hotels from tourists in Paris show the average number of foreign visitors to bo 00,000. It is customary to estimate at 10 francs, or $2, a day tho hotel bills of strangers in Paris. Estimating at §2 a day each tho hotel bills of 00,000 tourists and at about as much more their other oiitlays it is to be seen that tourists in Paris can be put down for an expenditure of nearly §250,000 a day. The total sum expended by tourists in Europe in a year is probably not very far from $700,000,000, and a very considerable portion of this comes from tho pockets, tho purses and tho bankers' balances of Americans, who are proverbially tho most liberal among travelers. Russians come second, Brazilians third. —Exchange. New Fall Millinery AT SETCHELL & SETCHELL'S. Elegant French pattern hats, All the fads in street hats and caps.

Readers of that charming work of iny late friend Wilkio Collins, "The Moonstone, '' will remember the sleepwalking feats of Mr. Franklin Blake when under the influence of an opiate. What the novelist describes as a piece of fiction may bo paralleled from tho sober records of science. McNish, in his classic volume on "Sleep," tolls us of a shepherd lad who, wrapt in slumber, walked miles to the place where his flock was pastured, waded through a river and returned homo without waking. In another case a lad in his sleep scaled a precipitous cliff and brought home from it an eagle's nest, which was found under his bed in tho morning. Aborcrombio's case of the Scottish lawyer who, when worried over a perplexing case, was seen by his wife to rise from his bed in tho night is another illustration of tho occasionally purposive character of somnambulism, when, directed by its private secretaries, the sleeping ego is apparently roused from its couch and made to act the part of a pure automaton. This individual went to a writing desk which stood in his bedroom, sat down beforo tho desk and wrote for some time. Thou, replacing tho paper within tho desk, he returned to bed. In the morning ho told his wife of a dream ho had experienced, in which he imagined ho had given a satisfactory opinion on the case which was troubling his mind. He expressed regret that he could not recall the train of thought represented in his dream. On his wife directing him to his writing desk, he found therein the opinion in question clearly written out and iu every respect satisfactory.—Andrew Wilson, M. D., in Harper's Magazine. Have Yon Seen It? Every big railroad in this country has a freight car in its equipment bearing the number 12,845, and yet I'll lay reasonable odds that you may tramp this town over and you will not be able to find a man, I care not how much he has traveled, who has over seen a car with that nxuuber. Among railroad men it is known as tho "sequence car" or the "oue-two-three-four-five car." Perhaps you never looked for it. I have. For years in my travels I made it a practice to get out whenever the train stopped and take a look at the freight cars in sight, and I have met drummers who told me they did the same thing, but never a glimpse did I get of that oar nor did I ever run across a man who had been so fort;inate. Try it. Go up to the freightyards in this city or across the river. You will find hundreds of oars, but it's $10 to a pint of peanuts that oar 18,845 will not be among them. —St. IJOUIB Republic. Ancient Playing Cards. Tbe ancient Torot packs were the earliest playing cards known to our t orefa- thers. They consisted of 73, 7 1 ? or 78 cards.
