TH32 UPMJB DES MOINES: ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER16, 1898. MADE A SPLENDID CATCH. BOOT-LEGGERS ABE THE VICTIMS. The Wesley Beporter Kicks About the Tax Mst—John MHntrarg i>ead—County, Items. A couple of men pretending to be horse buyers came to Livermore a week ago and began buying drinks of all the boot-leggers. Then they showed their buttons as United States officers and preceded to levy a heavy fine on the outfit. It is said that a man now has to know the grip, password, and come personally vouched for around Livermore, or he is left as dry as a fish. 1.UVerne Sews. Guy Hanna's regiment has been mustered out and be returned home Tuesday night. About 25 friends of Julius DeLosh and wife gathered at their home in Renwick, giving them a surprise before their departure to their new home at_ Algona. They left as their appreciation of the esteem in which they are held by the friends a parlor lamp, a hanging basket, and other useful gifts. Wliltletuore Cliamplon. Mark Boyle came down town last Thursday for the first time and it is needless to state that everybody was glad to see him out again. He is quite thin but has a good appetite and is gaining rapidly. He has quite a beard aod his brother Lew is growing one also. G. E. suspects that it is '• populism" cropping out. The Champion's corn husking item of last week about Chas. Nellis, Jr., husking 100 bushels of corn, has caused his cousin Claude, son of Chas. Xellis, Sr., to put forth a greater effort in the same line. He husked 106 bushels on elect-ton day on Mr. Crawford's farm. This is a big record for a boy of eighteen to make and it probably "will not be beaten. Burl Monitor. George Paine carne from his studies at Des Moines and Del Angus at Iowa City to vote. They returned on Wednesday. John Douglass, southwest of town, will pull up stakes for Missouri as soon as he gets his fall work done. He disposed of his farm some time ago. G. S. Angus will leave for the south sometime between now and Christmas. He says he is curious too visit Port Arthur and look over the country. He and his wife will probably eet rooms and go into light housekeeping. He will buy round trip tickets good for six months and his staying depends upon his impressions and prospects. Swea City Herald. The writer knows of fully 40 republicans in Harrison township who would not come out and vote, while there are not to exceed 10 democrats who did not Tote. The fidelity of our democratic friends to their principles and cause is commendable, and some of the wearv republicans might take lessons from the democratic example of zeal with profit to themselves acd the cause. John Melnburg Dead. John Meinburgr, one of the old settlers, died last Wednesday on the way between Bancroft and Swea City. The Begister tells of his sudden demise: J. X. Saldin and Carl Adolphson were driving home from their worn up in the country about dark when they discovered the body, but not knowing who it was or what the circumstance were, drove back to the Sanftner place to get a light. There they found the team " Jack" had been driving, having taken a traveling man to Swea City earlier in the day, and ithis was their first intimation of who the unfortunate man by the roadside could be. They went back and lifted him into their buggy and brought him to the home of his daughter, Mra-iJ^:-Q. Carpenter; doctors were summoned, but pronounced him beyond reach of their help. Coroner Morse was sent for and came up, but did not think it necessary to impanel a jury. The old man has for years been troubled with asthma, its effects on him being more noticeable of late, and he was no doubt taken with a bad spell while driving home and fell expiring from his carriage. Wesley News. There are a whole lot of men who if they owned a $50 dog would look after it carefully and know where it was nights. But with their dearly beloved ten-year-old boys it is different. Bancroft Register. J. B. Carr has- leased a house in Algona and expects to move down the fore part of next month. Geo. V. Davis is in poor health, confined to the house for some time. He managed to ride up to vote Tuesday, however. Dr. Geo Walters is building a new residence at Wesley, and it will take rank with the handsomest homes in the town when completed. Mrs. Maggie Olson, better remembered by our people as Maggie Mallory, is lying close to death's door with cop- sumption at the home of her sister, Mrs. Alex. Wilson, at Buffalo Center. Virtu* Its Own Keward. Toe Wesley Reporter lets out a matter in local politics that has been worrying the Courier more than Judge Quarton's popularity with the voters even. The following explains itself: "We UDderfltafljJ from Treasurer Smith that the county delinquent list will be published next week, that the Algona Courier will monopoly of the whole thing. Con- eidfcriog the port (be Wesley Beporter took in last year's campaign, and the fact that It has been repeatedly ' itad by both republicans and crate a* the originator of " " time candidates, does it not smacks good deal of the bog for the Conner to gobble the whole thing? It is true the Reporter did not enter into the fight from any promise of gain that might in the future come to it, and if the Courier did* then it belies and belittles Hself io the eyes of erery honest man. Aside from any pull 'the Reporter should have it is not fair or justifiable for any one paper in the countv to have the sole right of publishing* the list any more than one paper should monopolize the publishing of the board proceedings, and then the fee of twentv cents per description is exorbitant for one paper. When it comes to practicing party principles at home the Courier flunks—it believes in monoplv for itself—principles be d—d.'" The fact? seem to be that Mr. McMullen. who led the fight for Treasurer Smith last fall and who was credited by everybody with his election, suggested some weeks ago the propriety of a division of the tax list in accordance with long standing custom in the county. Mr. Smith admitted his obligations to the Reporter and also the justness of the claim, but said the Couriermustbeconsulted. TbeCourier evaded the matter as long as possible, but finally decided that virtue is its own reward for republicans who help rake democratic chestnuts out of the fire, but that all the fat goes to the faithful. The Courier took the high pround that nobody asked the Reporter to bolt, it acted of its own free will and accord, and an approving conscience is ali it is entitled to. This is the first time the Courier has been forced to show its hand in dealing with its allies. But now that it is shown, what has long been suspected is proved. Republicans who help it get democrats into office need expect nothing but a little homily on political virtue. The spoils are strictly democratic. Xew Sunday Scbool Association. WESLEY, Nov. 15.—F. C. Farr, the Sunday school missionary for this county, was here Sunday and conducted a Sunday school convention, which was a success in every respect. The program was a good one, and each topic was pretty well discussed. The morning services were held in the Congregational church, the afternoon and evening sessions being held in the Methodist church. At the close of the afternoon session a district association was formed, including the Sunday schools of Wesley township. Buffalo township and Sexton. The following were elected officers: Fred Anderson", president; Geo. B. Hall, secretary; J. E. McMullen. vice president: Mrs. J. D. Mason, treasurer. At 7:30 in the evening Rev. Case talked on the re:a- tion of the Sunday school to the church, which was handled in a masterly way and many good points were j brought out on that line. Dr. Day of! Algona was expected to be present, but owing to the inclemency of the weather or some other cause he failed to put in an appearance.

" What lovely letters I receive from Ma ry Hopkins," said one young lady to anoth er in our hearing, and while we are nol acquainted with the individual referred to yet this remark gives us a favorable opin^ ion 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 chance.

A LITTLE ABOUT HOGS. I have now been following the sick hog districts in Iowa for two years, and I have not lost in a single case except on 5 per cent, of the herd I guarantee a 5 per cent, cure of sick hogs or no pay. In most cases I have saved from 80 to 90 per cent., and in lots of cases I even saved 100. but they were in small herds: perhaps if they wer« all in large herds the results would show larger loss; but I don't think the disease is very contagious, for I come right home from the sick hog pens and feed and care for my hogs, and never have had sick hogs since I began putting up ms medicine. I tieat for worms, and I think worms is the starting point of the disease, as there are four different kinds of worms and the hogs seem to come down with that many different symptoms. Of course after the hog is in a rundown condition it is contagious to hogs in the same condition. My medicine is the best worm killer in the world, and also the cheapest, and if fed according to directions and the hogs are kept physiced out they will pull through all right. For illustration, how many will give medicine to sick hogs? I will say right here one man bought one can of my Hog- Cholera Preventer at 81-25 and a pound of salts for over 100 head of hogs—not enough to physic over five or six head. It would not amount to any more than one pill for a man. My medicine can be obtained of Durant Bros or at my house in Algona, Iowa, at R1.35 per pint—1280 doses for one hog.
