THIS tlPPlK BEH MOIND8: ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 28, 1898 * ' ......... ^ ...... .......™.=- .,„.. - -.----- -.->- -- —-.--.;-:;; ~_-.!-j^jg-,.---™^i.--ajj MBS, GtliSt &«B8l&f Physicians Called to Consult in the Matter—Miscellaneous County News Jottings. One of life's minor tragedies is told of by the Wesley Reporter: Dr. Morse was down from Algona Monday night to consult with Dr. Walters concerning the condition of Mrs. Geist. He pronounced her case hopeless and recommended that she he sent to the hospital at Independence for treatment. This is one of the most pitiful cases that has come under our notice for some time, as we understand her deplorable condition was to a great extent brought on by overwork. Beside the hard work of her household duties and caring for three small children, she had to milk 11 cows twice a day, feed the hogs and sometimes attend to the horses. It is no wonder that under such adverse circumstances her mitid and body gave way—the wonder is that the poor frail woman stood up under the burden so lone. God pity the victim of such a slave life, and speed the day when man shall love, cherish, and keep his wife from such irksome drudgery. Whlttomore Champion. It is said that a man who works for H. S. Dailey husked 118 bushels of corn in one day last week. Mark Boyle says it seems good to be out again, and it certainly seems good to see him out. Clifford Thompson is here visiting his brother, H. J. He has recovered from the injuries from which he was so low a short time ago. tiUVnnie News. A union Thanksgiving service will be held in the Presbyterian church next Thursday forenoon at 10:30. Discourse will be preached by Rev. C. B. Winter of the M. E. church. John Hall is now at Titonka, the new town in Kossuth county on the Garner road, where he has charge of a new yard just put in by Queal & Co. Swcn Otty Herald. John Hart, our famous base ball player, came in from Estherville Tuesday moAiing to remain a while. A reception was given Mrs. J. A. Cronholm at the home of Mrs. O. Anderson last Saturday afternoon, prior to the departure of the former to Algona. About a score of ladies were present and passed the afternoon very pleasantly. Dainty refreshments were served at 5 o'clock, which all heartily enjoyed. The Swea City gun club will bold its first annual Thanksgiving shoot at this place on Wednesday, Nov. 23. Turkeys and ducks will be in plenty, and the locals are planning for a royal good time with their neighbors and friends. All are invited to come and participate in the contests. Burt Monitor. Willie Peck left without ceremony the first of this week for Des Moines to join the standing army. Home life is INSTANTANEOUS RESULTS. I read in the Christian Standard of a remark- abJe discovery for the cure of deafness which seemed BO reasonable and simple I resolved to try it, having been deaf in my right ear. from which thero hod been ft most dl?a£rrco- able discharge for eighteen years. Fro;:i I'.-i time I was one year old I wasafilJ'Jtf U irifh .-• distressing cough; 1 had severe licnuacl.-i and my eyes were very sore, compelling m'» to wear glftBses. Cuturm troubled rno worse at nigh t and in tho morning. I always had to Bleep with jay head propped up on five or six pillows on account of difficult breathing and paroxysms of coughing. My throat was very sore; tonsils enlarged. To my great surprise and gratification my bearing was restored the very first time 1 used the treatment; within three months my voice and throat, which had been seriously affected, were cured, the discharge and distressing cough stopped, lay eyes were much improved, and I received benefits in many ways that I cannot describe. I breathed freely and easily again. Aerial Medication is certainly a grand discovery, and it gives me much pleasure to recommend it.—Mies Lizzie Paisley, Lisbon, Ohio. FREE. Aerial Medication will positively cure deafness, catarrh, throat and lung diseases. To provo tbla I will, for a. bijou time, send jnedlcinee for tbreo months' treatment free. For symptom form and particulars address jr. a. MOOJIE, M,D.,im3 Cincinnati, Ohio, too tame for him. His folks knew nothing of his contemplated departure. Auditor Calkins has sold his WhUte- more lumberyard to W. W. Wtreeler of Des Molnes. N. L. Cotton will be retained as manager. The yard Would seem unnatural without Mr. Cotton, who Is one of the most popular men of Whittemore. There was an unadvertlsed potato- guessing contest at the Hurt Wigwam one day last week. Louis Larson of Portland township brought over a bushel of potatoes—60 pound',—in a sack, and he offered to give them to the man who would come nearest to guessing the number of potatoes in the sack. The guesses ranged all the way from 35 to 200. After all had guessed they were poured out and counted, and there were only 41 potatoes in the 60 pounds. There were two potatoes in the lot that Weighed in the neighborhood of 2-J pounds each. Geo, E. Marble made the closest guess and got the potatoes. Bancroft Register. An odd sight was an invoice of wooden shoes, over 60 pairs, received by Tjarks & Co. of German Valley last week. They say there is quite a demand for them out there. Sam Davison la In the regular army, having joined recently at the St. Paul recruiting station, and has been assigned to the hospital corps of a regiment now stationed in the east. He went in for a three years' term, and may possibly see some service in our now possessions before the incident is closed. Bob Weir arrived last night from Latouia with the three race horses purchased for E. P. Bircher, Trocha, Nannie D, and Lauretta B, three fine and very fust gallopers. There are few better bred horses in the country, and —well, they will show how they can run next season. These, with Flossie D., which Mr. Bircher bought some time ago, make a very good string of racers and one which will boom Bancroft's already good reputation as a race horse town. Wesley Reporter. Sam Grove is putting up a livery and feed barn at Titonka. He will manage it himself, while Mrs. Grove and the boys will look after the barn here. One of our farmers offered a man 3i cents a bushel and his dinner each day to husk corn, but the fellow declined such low wages. There are people just built that way, and when cold weather sets in they will curse the uncharitable- ness of their richer neighbor. Last Saturday evening Mrs. Thos. Pybus, accompanied by her 10-year-old daughter, came over from Corwith and took the train for New York, from which place they will take passage for Liverpool. Mrs. Pybus had only been in this country a little over a year, but for some reason she disliked the change to such an extent that she decided to return. Wesley News. The subscription list for the proposed new church at Sexton is growing very fast, about §400 being subscribed already. It is hoped that the church can be built this fall. A Runaway Emmetsburg Boy. SEXTON, Nov. 22.— Sexton Sunday school will give a Christmas entertainment. Arrangements are now being made for a good program. A boy 12 or 14 years of age was taken from a freight train Sunday and given into Constable Maston's hands. He said he came from Emmetsburg, but did not want to go back there. It looks as if the M. E. church would build a house of worship here this winter. The amount is nearly raised that entitles them aid from their board. George Kelley's team ran away from him last week running south a mile and west a mile, where they were caught. No damage was done. We have preaching every Sunday now and it will pay anyone to come and hear Bro. Case. Grandma Ward, mother of Herman Ward, has gone to Marathon to live with her daughter there. She went Monday.

WILL BEOEQANIZE, Company f Will Be Reorganized— Two Regiments Will Be Organized Gen. Byers* statement. Col. Cooke'e absence in Chicago has kept the talk of reorganizing Company F in a new national guard regiment from coming to much of a head, and still some discussion is going on. When the boys came home from the south many of them thought they had had enough of guard duty. But the sentiment now seems to be for a new company. It is thought Col. Cooke will be in favor of reorganizing. The sentiment seems to be that the new organization should be on a war basis, and no boy's play. It a new company is watited in a national guard organization that means business there will be no trouble in getting it In Algona. Two Regiments Will Be Organized. But two regiments of the national guard will be organized at present, the third and fourth places being held open for the two regiments now in the service. The new regiments will probably be permitted to retain their volunteer service designations, that is Fiftieth and Fifty-second, etc. The first regiments to be reorganized will be tho old Second and Fourth, now the Fiftieth and Fifty-second. Army regulations will be followed in making the enlistments. The men will pass rigid physical examinations and the officers examinations in administration and tactics. The theory of the war department is that it is folly for the state of Iowa to expend money in training soldiers if they are not capable of service in time of war. The companies of the new national guard will be taken from the towns which had companies in the old guard so far as they desire. Gen. Bj'ors' Statement. Adj. -Gen. Byers on Wednesday issued the following authorized statement: It is the intention of this department soon after the 1st of January to reorganize the Fiftieth and Fifty- second regiments into two regiments of the Iowa national guard, the regiments and companies occupying the same territory and the same localities so far as they desire, and the members of the different company organizations of the Fiftieth and Fifty-second regiments shall have the first opportunity of filling the vacancies caused by the muster into the United States service of the company and regimental organizations of the Second and FourtU regiments of the Iowa national guard. Each of the companies will be reorganized and company officers elected as provided by the military law of the state of Iowa. We shall expect and require that before the members are mustered in and before the officers are commissioned that they will pass such examination as may be required of them in orders from this department. We expect to .comply strictly with the war department's order upon physical examination. We do not think that it is right to spend the state's money to educate citizens to be soldiers in time of peace so that in time of war or time of need they can not be utilized as soldiers. One of the very lame things in the organization of the national guard in past years has been the fact that they were not required to pass physical examination. We do not expect to be too rigid in this matter, but do think that when the state is educating soldiers and paying out its money to educate soldiers, that we shall have value received for the money expended. We hope that the members of the two regiments that have been or are being mustered out will look at this matter in its true light and in justice to the state as that which is best for all concerned. I make this statement for the reason that there has been considerable talk as to reorganization of the national guard, and also there has been some talk that they were still in the national guard. General orders No. 25 were issued for the purpose of clearing up the record so that we might reorganize the national guard upon the proper basis. • Tho Liocal Markets.
