Everything Looks Favorable ft>r Its Early Completion—As Viewed Prom Other Potftts. There is nothing known definitely about the intentions of the Northwestern railway, further than that during the past week work has progressed rapidly along the surveys from Sao City towards Algona, and from Hurt northwest. The Pocahontas Record stated Friday that the surveyors were then north of Fonda. Its opinion is that the survey will end at Pocahontas until spring and then bo extended to Algona, Work on the grade from Wall Lake to Denison Is being pushed, and cars will be running on that branch by Jan. 1. It is reported that throe squads of surveyors have been working between Burt and Tracy. S. Mayno talked with E. S. Ellsworth Friday, who had just come from Chicago, and his opinion was that grading would begin west of Burt In the next 10 days. There is no doubt whatever that the lino will be put in. THE UOAD WILL BE BUILT. Odebolt Chronicle: The now linoof the Northwestern is to bo built; that IB practically settled. Several hundred men are at work on the grade betwoeh Wall Luke and Denison, and the assertion is freely made that cars will bo running down the Boyor within two months. The company's corps of surveyors started northeast from Sao City station last Week and are running an nir line from Sao to Algona, passing through Fonda. PERMANENT SURVEY STAKES. Sac Sun: The surveyors on the Sac ity and Algona extension of the Northwestern returned last Friday and be- jan setting permanent survey stakes. The lino finally chosen crosses the principal highway north from Sac City bo- iween tlie residences of J.'Hart and F. S. Brown and proceeds thence north- oast to Fonda, not far from the lino described last week. Grading is progress- .ng rapidly between Wall Lake and Denison. Ag SEEN AT POCAHONTAS. Record: During the past two weeks corps of engineers of 13 men have aeen surveying the lino from Sac City to Fonda, and this morning the surveyors are four miles northeast of Fonda, The lino now being surveyed will run hrough Fonda, Rusk, Pocahontas and on to Reubens, which is abou 1 ; two miles west of Rolfo, and where the Northwestern had their station for a number of years. It is thought thatnoattempt will bo made to complete the lino to Algeria this winter, but that next spring ho work will again bo taken up. The Northwestern officials are very reticent joncerning their intentions, yet it is relieved that they intend to push the work as fast as possible. It is rumored lore this morning that the Northwest- em's right-of-way men are at work be- ween Sao City and Fonda and that graders are ready to go to work just as soon as the right-of-way has been secured. This rumor has not been con- Irmed, but It is known that a party of surveyors are following up the first _ang, sotting grade stakes, and it is evident that they are making a very om pi eto survey. Whether the Northwestern will ask 'or any aid from the people is not cnown, but It Is the general feeling .hat the people will bo asked to donate ,he right-of-way. Our people feel very anxious to secure a railroad and will no doubt do what they can to assist the company. MONEY TO LOAN On Improved.

Rev. Walter Walker preached his first sermon in Des Motnes Sunday. The papers say that lie preached to two of the largest congregations that have gathered in the city in a long time. Tho Register in its report says: The auditors were not disappointed, as both discourses wore of tv very high order. Mr, Walker IB a young man and one of the most brilliant divines of his denomination in the west. Hois exceedingly earnest In hla delivery and holds the close attention of his audience from start to finish. Tho First Baptist is to bo congratulated on adding so able a divine to the Dos Moinos ministry. Tho Capital says: Before entering upon his sermon Mr. Walkor paid a beautiful tribute to his predecessor, a tribute that won for him at once the favor of those who had disposed to regard him critically. Tho morning text was a part of the twenty-second verso of the twenty-first chapter of the gospel according to John, "What is that to theo, follow thou mo." Tho application made was that wo each of us have but one life to llvo, with no ohanoo to try experiments or correct mistakes. In what way we shall fashion our earthly existence is a question we are all immeasurably interested In. To make the best use of our time, that is what wo are hero lor, Wo find there are limitations which cannot be over- stopped, personal endowments and environments which cannot bo overlooked. Practically we must work out the problem for ourselves. Tho question, how can wo make the most of life, is an Individual question. Each must choose for himself what shall bo the goal of- his efforts. Because of the very possibilities which each life unfolds, this Is the morn difficult. Art, wealth, literature, all are alluring. Commerce, law, medicine, all have their possibilities. But if wo should make tho pursuit of any one of those our supremo object in life, we would make an error that could never bo retrieved. To do Christ's will, to llvo as ho would have us llvo, to follow him— this alone Is worth while. PEBSONAL MOVEMENTS. Gardner Cowles wont to Chicago last evening.

MR, DOLUYER IN HAS BIO MEETINGS 1ST TWO TOWffS, Spoke at Doth Whlttcmore nml Wesley Saturday—Other Meetings in tho County. Congressman Dol liver was greeted by great audiences at Whlttemoro and Wesley Saturday. He hns been having large audiences all through tho cam* ptilgn and was not surprised, but the crowds were a surprise to others, who did not underestimate the drawing powers of tho speaker. For an afternoon meeting, and Saturday afternoon at that, and more than all tho afternoon of a good corn husking day, tha Whittomoro meeting was unusual. Tho largo hall was crowded oven for standing room and the attendance was of tho best and most substantial citizens of tho west side of tho county. The Wesley mooting was u reminder of tho 1890 campaign. People had driven from Burt and Bancroft and all the country intervening, and tho hall was not nearly largo enough. Enough stood outside to fill another hull, and tho enthusiasm of an old time campaign filled the air. Mr. Dolllvor was at his best and made two great speeches, auoh as ho alone of all tho campaigners who como to Koasuth, oan make. Mr. O'Connoll says that In Washington Mr. Dollivor is recognized by all as tho real orator of congress. Others occasionally roach a high level, but ho never falls below it. In spite of tho fatigues of a month's steady work on tho stump, and in spite of two long speeches in one day, his fund of humor was unexhausted, and ho was able to Illuminate a solid discussion of tho real Issues of tho campaign with those bright touches that aro strictly Dol- llvorian, and hold tho undivided and unwearied attention of a packed and standing audience. Mr, Dolllver discussed at somo length the tariff, money, the war, and expansion. Ho mado a very effective response to the charge that ho personally had neglected his duty towards the soldiers at Camp Thomas, and' was loudly cheered at Whlttomoro. Discussing expansion ho look what is now tho position of nearly all who have considered tho situation tho country is in. We were blown up at Havana, no said humorously, arid ourao down on tho Philippines. We couldn't help it. We captured them because thoy were in our way, and now It is repugnant to us to givo them back to Spain or to divide ihem with Europe. Wo seem obm- polled to hold them, and our duty and destiny both point to that conclusion. Two bettor speeches have never boon mado in Kossuth than these two at Whlttemoro and Wesley. If Mr. Dolliver could have spared time to visit every town In tho county, this would have boon as rousing a campaign as we have ever had. LAFE YOUNG IN ALOONA. When Lafo Young addressed a legisr lature, a penitentiary, a woman's suffrage association and a negro college in one day down south ho won his place as Iowa's most versatile talker, and he has ' had no competitor since. His talent makes any topic appropriate to any occasion, arid ho never talks about anything that does not ontortaln his audience and send it home feeling better disposed towards tho world in general and towards that particular project in which ho la Interested. Ho had never made a political address in Algona before Friday night, but nearly everybody had heard him on other occasions and the hall was full. Those who were not present missed a talk that was brighter and more entertaining than half tho leoturo course lecturers can >lve, and that had just enough polities In it to fit tho present campaign. After discussing the war and tho duty of sustaining the administration, not as republicans but as American citizens, he gradually drifted into giving some of bis personal experiences with Shaffter's army at Santiago, and had ho continued to talk three hours it would have been U> a delighted audience. In concluding he gave some of his personal recollections of early days down in Appa- nooso county, when free trade was in vogue, and spent a half hour in an equally entertaining discussion of the money question. When he comes to Algona aga\ "o talk politics the hall will have to be enlarged, O'CONNELL AT BUHT AND BANCROFT, M, D. O'Connell was hoodood in Kossuth this year. He was billed for Alb 'ona first and the storm and short no- bice made a meeting impracticable. Then THE UPPER DES MOINES by an unfortunate slip got him slated for Burt and Bancroft on the wrong day. In spite of all, however, ho had good meetings, and made speeches such as have heretofore made him one of the best vote getting campaigners that has ever visited the county. At Burt he made a nice talk to the school children who were present. At Bancroft he entered fully into the issues of the cam* paign and the Eeglster says "gave a most interesting, logical, and convincing talk," He was Introduced by Hon. S. Mayne at Bancroft, who made a vigorous short speech on the issues, BRUNSON AND Q0ABTON AT BWEA CITY One of the live meetings of the cam- palgn was held at Swea City Friday evening. A. A. Bruoson made the principal speech and those present gay that be outdid himself , He IB ft vigorous and earnest talker and a man who influences others. Judge Quarton spoke briefly and paid hJ» re»p€W?te to the Courier's campaign of personal slander In a very direct fashion, Tti« Wheat brings 68 cents in Algooa,
