UgPMHjPES MOINgS;ALGOJSrA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, QCTOBEH 26, IS IN THE PUSH, r 80 'Mlli&6 THE WESLEY BEPORTER Bpeftkft Encfiriiragfnglj- of Oar Rall- t"*0spart»—IttecelUmeous Jtews of the County. The Wesley Reporter sees that Al- g-ona if In the push. " Algona is not Only going to put on airs by baring electric lights but is now in the push for two new railroads. The Belmond extension of the Iowa Central to connect with Algona is talked of again, and there is some prospect of it being a go. Then that air line of the Northwestern from Denison to Algona is another dream that the over sanguine are banking on. The former may be probable but the latter can hardly be expected. However, should the anticipations of the old Iowa be realised in petting both roads they would be the means of bringing other interests, among them being that normal school which for years has been wished for. Algooa has our best wishes." Here is the opposite picture from the Armstrong Pilot: The fanning mii! swindler is among the people of this vicinity. A car load of fanning rnijis arrived in Armstrong a couple ol days ago and the swindlers are now peddling them through the country. These parties are not from A Jgona. but fakes are the same wherever they come from. If you need a fanning mill "the dealers in your home town can furnish it as cheap as the traveling fakir, and sell is on time if you don r t have the money. "When strangers come along: and you to buy something that is cheap, think of Algona and "sick" the dog onto them. Tbe Same Man. Emmetsbnrg Reporter: Bigelow is the name of the man who is putting In the light plant at Aigona. Wonder if this is the same man who fluked on the franchise given him by this city two years ago? Algona's Beauty. Swea City Herald: There isn't a nicer town of its size in Iowa than Algona, and when it forges aht-ad and becomes a city of seven or eight thousand people we want to go down there and run a daily paper. _ Swea City Herald. The sale of the hardware store to Anderson Bros, means that Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Cronholm will leave Swea City, and the move is universally regretted. Mr. Cronholm will have a third interest in the Spurbeck & Lambert creamery supply business in Algona, and will remove bis family to that place soon. This family was one of the pioneers of Swea City, and is still one of the first in the town, and we would much prefer to see them stay, but in their going they will carry with them the best wishes of their neighbors and friends. The masons expect to begin the foundation for Paul Fechner's new house this week. Sam Stussey's brother, from Wisconsin, arrived yesterday for a short visit. On Wednesday, Oct. 12, at 11 o'clock Rev.

Hanna's baby girl swallowed a penny and was in danger of choking to death for a while till the doctor arrived and forced it on down her throat, not being able to recover it. _ Wesley Xewa. Arthur Ward's little son, Ray, met with a very unfortunate accident yesterday morning while playing with a 'grindstone. The little fellow put bis hand, on which he had a mitten, into the mechanism near the stone while it was in motion, and almost lost his thumb as a result. The member got caught and flesh and skin were torn, leaving the bone protruding over half an inch. The little fellow was brought to Dr. Hill's office and after proper dressing seems to rest as comfortable as could be expected. mue Sky In HumboJdt. Llvermore Gazette: Only two weeks ago the Gazette published an account of how Joseph Matson in Kossuth county was induced by some smooth- tongued individuals to sign an agreement to become a distributing agent for some bog cholera medicine, and to receive an enormous commission on all that be bandied, and how a note of $115 turned up later with his name signed to it, in favor of J. L. Sutton. It now seems that our worthy subscriber Ole Dokkesween, who farms Pat Murphy's place, did not read that article with the care which he should, for the same well known individuals who roped in Mr. Matson called on Ole this week, got his name onto a little piece of paper, and he now has a large stock of cholera medicine on band. It will be just as well for Ole to warn his friends to look out for that note now, for it will certainly turn up in the near future. l^edyarct Leader, Elmer Anderson ol Ruthven, fusion candidate for congress in this district, was up this way the latter part of the week looking up his chances for defeat- Jag DolJiver, _ ^_ BUT* Monitor.
