SURVEYING TO ALGONA. Sac Sun: Moreover, the Algona and Sac City connection is not neglected. A party of surveyors began work on Saturday and run several linesfromthe depot across the Coon. One which seems most feasible crosses the Newell road in a northeasterly direction north ofD Corsaut's residence.

L, Button Says There Is No Truth in the Report!* in the Newspapers About Ills Cholera Hemedy. THE UPPER DES MOINES has pub- ished an item or two from neighbor- ng papers reflecting on J. L. Button's method of selling his hog cholera •emedy. Mr. Button was in Saturday with samples of his contracts, etc., and iis explanation of his business seems to be entirely satisfactory. He is merely wholesaling his medicine, which many farmers and stock raisers hereabouts'say is a good thing. He sends the actual goods to every man who signs the contract, and there ie no fake about it, The man gets what he pays for. Mr. Button says he can only retail over a small territory, and he can most successfully introduce his remedy by getting men in various localities to buy in quantities and scatter it in their neighborhood. Out of a great many be ha.s sold tp only one has that although a stove may have been used it is not worthless ? We have some bargains in |second hand stoves. Hard and soft coal stoves from $3 up.
