TM3S UFPMt BBS MOINES: ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1898. THE LEADER MOPS OUT, LEDtAED PAPEB QUITS BtTSUTESS. Editor Clark Says He I/ost Enough Money In the Venture—General County News. Following tbe Germania Standard the Ledyard Leader drops out. Editor Clark says he has lost all tbe money he wants to. The former editor, Carpenter, has a mortgage on the plant and what he will do is uncertain. Editor Clark makes a spicy farewell in which he says: With this issue of the Leader we unseat ourselves as its editor, and go in search of something a little more lucrative. We have worked hard the past two years and three months to give the people of this vicinity a good, credible sheet, and what has it amounted to? It has amounted to several hundred dollars out of our pocket. The paper never has payed, is not paying, and never will pay until those people who are trying to do business without advertising do something for it and those who are sending their job work to the foreign printer let the home editor do the work. Bancroft Register. Bob Weir left Tuesday night for Maysville, Ky., to bring home a running horso or two for Messrs. Bircher and Higley. They have bought one mare, Lauretta B., a very well bred animal, and the firm from whom they made the purchase gave them figures on another galloper which they may conclude to take. F. A. Patterson started his new store at Germania this week, and will run it on the cash system. By the papers and correspondence he received from Honolulu and San Francisco concerning Uncle Sam's new territory, he says he concluded Hawaii was not the place for a man of bis limited capital, so he hastened to get back into business again in the best country on the map, north Kossuth. Hurt Monitor. David Dormey of Algona has been elected principal of the Swea City schools. The Burt people who attended the Boston Ladies' Symphony orchestra Tuesday night were more than pleased. It was one of the best programs ever given in the opera house. Wm. Cooper of Portland will spend the winter in the south. He will have a public sale before long and sell everything but the farm, which will belooked after by bis son John, and with his wife and daughter will first go to Oklahoma. They will visit there with "Bo" Stott, who lately went there from Kansas and has rented a farm near J. P. Gray's. They will then go down into Texas and look at the country. Whittemore Champion. A new boy arrived at Aug. Fenske's home Saturday night. All parties are getting along nicely. It is believed that even August will recover. Boyle and McGoyern got here Sunday with about 175 head of steers, which they bought near Chamberlain, S. D. It is a very nice lot of steers. The first number of the Algona lecture course Tuesday was attended by about 30 persons from here. The Boston Ladies' Symphony gave a musical entertainment which was first class in every respect. In fact many considered the one entertainment worth the price of the full course. Svvea City Herald. J. A. Cronholm will begin moving this week to Algona. It will make a long haul. If we had a hundred corn pickers in stock we could find places for them in this community inside of 48 hours. J. O. Hatch was down to Denison last week and got a proffer of a mile of grading on the North western's new line from that place to Wall Lake. If Mr. Hatch can get men and teams he will go down and do the work as soon as they can get started, as the contractor wishes to get this line finished this fall. This line will be 22 miles long and by using the line already built, as far as Sac City, will give this company about 35 miles of the line toward Algona. The distance from Sac City to Algona is a trifle less than 60 miles. Hurt at Wesley. News: .Julius Plant, fireman on the west bound way freight, Tuesday morning received injuries here that may end fatally. He was standing on the south end of the cab platform with his back out while switching cars on the side track. On passing the stock chutes one of the gates that was out struck him in tbe back with force and threw him from the engine. He w unconscious for a few seconds, but soor got pp and walked. The blood*flowe<3 from his mouth and head. Dr. Walters examined him and found that no bones were broken, but that he had sustained serious internal injuries. He went back on the morning passenger to Mason City. Wesley News. Mrs. S. X. Way left Tuesday morning for Grand Porks, N- D., for a three weeks' visit to relatives. Death visited the home of Mr. and Mrs, John Isenbrand in German las Thursday night and took away tbeii daughter Pena, aged. 11 years, nine months, and 14 days. She was taken sick, with malarial fever, ttien the typhoid fever and then the lung fever set in.

The luilding is now being moved by Mr. Norwood of Algona, and will soon be in josition. We are pleased that the natter has been so amicably settled, and hope it may prove a blessing both o the town and adjacent territory. LuVerne News. Joe Steil and family moved down rom Algona yesterday. I. P. Harrison is having a brick walk laid in front of his residence property. W. A. Parsons of Irvington was call- ng on friends here today. Saturday he •eturned from Mason City, where he lad been attending school for about hree months. Several from trvington attended the Boston Symphony at Algona Tuesday vening. If this is a fair sample of the ntertainment course gotten up by 3 rof. Spencer no one can afford to miss any part of it. HOG OHOLEBA OUBABLE. Government experiments With Serum Have Heen Entirely Successful. WASHINGTON, Oct. 27.—Dr. Salmon, :hief of the bureau of animal industry, ays the experiments of the bureau lave demonstrated that hog cholera san be effectively and cheaply combat- id. The bureau during two years has )t-oved that by the use of serum 80 per ;ent. of affected hogs treated were sured, while 80 per cent, of those not o treated died. He says that millions of dollars can bo saved to farmers annually by the use of serum. This serum s procured by injecting into the blood of a horse or cow a small amount of the >lood of a cholera-infected hog and relating tho operation until the animal s rendered immune. Then its blood is drawn and allowed to become clotted and the clot drawn off, leaving a thin, rellowish portion, which is serum, ["his is injected into the hog, render- og it immune to cholera or curing it if already diseased. We Want the Philippines. W. O. Payne in the Nevada Representative: The United States has no eason to be afraid of the Philippines. Other nations govern colonies for the 'ood of the colonials, and find the en- .erprise profitable. The United States s going to have a navy. It proposes to >uild a merchant marine. It wants outposts for its comercial interests. It "s awakening to new possibilities, and ;he possession of Manila and its depend-' encies—and that means all the Philip- )ines—is or will be opportune. The ;overnment of the Philippines will of ourse present problems, but the peo- ile who ought to know plainly regard ,he Philippinos as more capable of self- government than the Cubans, and the 'ormer have certainly put up the better Ight for freedom. A good many sensa- iional stories have come from Manila, jut it is yet to be made clear that the Philippinos would not gladly accept self-government under American auspices if they were assured that the Americans would give them the per- marfent protection which such acceptance implies. More than all this the United States s in possession of Manila, and has entered into a virtual and successful though not formal alliance with the Philippines. Through this alliance it bas ousted Spain from any effective authority in the Philippines. The logical conclusion from such a situation is that the United States will hold on to the supreme authority, get what benefit reasonably inures therefrom, and afford the Philippinos protection and the largest measure of self-government of whicb they may be or become capable. Finally, if this program does not suit, just about how would the objector after zareful consideration have the United States get gracefully and honorably out of its present situation? A. D.

What lovely letters I receive from Mary Hopkins," said one young lady to another in our hearing, and while we are not acquainted with the individual referred to, yet this remark gives us a favorable opinion of her, which we likewise have of all who master the art of letter writing, for such persons seldom fail to win their way to social and business prominence. Parents, give your boys and girls a chance. Buy each one of them, who is ten years old and over, a scholarship in some school of correspondence where trained teachers conduct a practical and instructive and exceedingly interesting course of so ciai and business correspondence with their scholars, old or young, at their homes. At the school named below* the price of tuition has been reduced to the remarkably small sum of $3.40 per year, payable sixty cents .quarterly in advance, or $2.00 in one cash payment. For some time this school has also furnished its scholars all needed stationery, and will continue to do so iu tbe future. Let that progressive word, "Now," which baa been the key note to so many successful careers, be your watchword, and apply at once for a scholarship in the National School of Correspondence at 1805 Fourth Aye. South, Minneapolis, Minn. AN HONEST HEART. tt Brought ft R«r of Snnshln* into the Tiresome Depot. "An all fired hot day, marm. Goin for?" said an old farmer, addressing a lady -who sat at bis side in a railroad station waiting for a train. Tbe woman drew away he* ricb silks impatiently, frowning as if to say, "You're oat of your place, sir," but she made no audible reply. "An all fired hot day, I say, marm," said the old man in a louder tone, supposing that she \vas a little deaf. "Are you goin fur? Why," he continued, as no reply was vouchsafed, "I'm sorry you're deaf, marm. How long have you been so?" "Sir," said the woman, rising, "do you mean to insult me? I shall complain to the police." And she swept haughtily from the room. "Waal, I never 1" exclaimed the old man, as he drew out the red bandanna and mopped his forehead. "Pretty tired, marm?" he continued, addressing a woman who had just come in, carrying a baby and a lot of bundles, and with two small children clinging to her dress. "Are you goin fur?" "To Boston, sir," was the pleasant reply. "Got to wait long?" "Two hours. Oh, children, do be quiet and don't tease mother anymore." "Look ahere, yon young shavers, and see what I've got in my pocket," and soon both children were on his knees eating peppermint candy and listening to wonderful stories about the sheep and calves at home. Next he pulled out a string and taught them how to play "cat's cradle." They were soon on the- floor, happy as kittens. "Now let me take that youngster, marm," he said, noticing that the baby wanted to bo tossed all the time. "You look clean beat out. I guess I can please him. I'm a powerful hand with babies." In his big arms the child crowed with delight until he fell asleep. • "'Tain't nothin at all, marm,"he said two hours later as he helped the woman and her charges on board. Buying a pint of peanuts from a little girl and paying 12 cents instead of 10 cents, he munched in hearty enjoyment until his train was called. "All aboard I" shouted the conductor, and the train started. "Something bright has gone out of this depot that doesn't come in everyday," said one who remained—"an honest heart."— Success. »(Jhpap On Oct. 18, Nov. 1 and 16, Deo. 6 and go tbe Northwestern line will sell home- seekers' excursion tickets, wltft favpr- able tiwe Unite, to numerous points in the west and south at exceptionally Jo w ratee.

Oddly enough, they were quite fashionable 40 and 50 years ago. A favorite and one of the most beautiful objects imaginable is a bunch of crystals from one of the famous caverns in the limestone district. Some of these are as clear as rock crystal, and are not alone many faceted but are often covered in part with masses of large and small crystals of great brilliancy. When the faceting occurs in certain patterns, the crystal has the fire of a precious stone and, in a well lighted parlor will throw colored lights and fires in every direction. Still another beautiful object is a mass of fine fern leaf coral, which is found near the keys in the middle and eastern part of the island. Some of this is so delicate that it suggests a petrified cobweb.— Margherita Arliua Hamm in New York Mail and Express. Suit's Hog Cholera Remedy. The remedy that cures hog cholera or no pay.
