The opera house was crowded Friday evening for the merchants' carnival, and for two hours the audience was entertained by a pretty spectacle. The costumes, the marches, and the Verses were all heartily applauded and were all worthy of it. Some of the designs and announcements were mord catchy than others, but all were so good that comparison would be difficult. G. E William's little boy as a coon bootblack, however, can be praised by himself. He furnished lots of amusement and is an actor. Mrs. Tribon represented "America" and Miss Gould "Cuba."

Yours for business, TEAMP MAKES A BIG HAUL, Steals $1,J3OO of Notes and $<IO In Money at Walter Spurbecli's—No Clue la Left. Saturday afternoon someone entered the Spurbeck home north of the Northwestern depot and took Charlie Ingersoll's vest In which were $1,800 of notes, In money, a gold watch chain. The theft was not dlscovored until about 6 o'clock and no trace of the thief can be got. Whoever did the job was evidently liesurely about it. He went out on the the porch and got a pan of milk, brought it in, and ate crackers and milk awhile as a starter. He also visited the girl's room up stairs and toolc $2.50 In money that belonged to her. The suspicion is that a tramp did the work. Four came in at 4 o'clock on a freight and one was arrested as a vagrant. One begged a meal at Jay Mo- Call's and another doubtless went to the Spurbeck house and found it vacant. The three who were not arrested got away on the Northwestern train south, and no trace of them has been found, The notes were all fortunately past due, so they cannot be bought by third parties without notice. Mr. Ingersoll has copies so he will lose nothing. All he Is out is the vest and the $40. RAILWAY NOTES. Clear Lake Mirror; Algona will be something of a railroad town after this year if the Iowa Central should be extended from Belmond and the Chicago & Northwestern from Deniaon, Corwlth Crescent: G. C. Call says that the Northwestern does not move in a secret and mysterious Way (Tom) its lines to build. It seems that the Amsterdam people looked at it in the same Way. Spirit Lake Beacon: The railroad situation in the Tenth district is exceedingly interesting, but too complicated for explanation. A Beacon man this week gathered up a pile of papers from Algona, Britt, Fort Dodge, Pooa- hontaa, Denison, Sao City and elsewhere in pursuit of a determination to reach an understanding of the whole business. The mope be read the more he was muddled with accounts of the various projects—North western," Rook Island, Burlington, Illinois Central, Iowa Central, Slippery Elm—and final' ly gave up in utter despair. It seems certain, however, that when spring opens all the roads mentioned either will or won't build to the towns named ov somewhere else. OSEAP, Upper Pw Alpines csw Supply Qeadtnit Mntter Cneap-spjne Clubbing R»teg The Former Editor of The Upper DesMoliioa Dies at His Home In Whitewater. A telegram Monday morning announced to R. B. Warren that Pitt Cruvath was dying at his home la Whitewater, Wls. Mr. and Mrs. Warren took the evening train east, arriving at 6 o'clock yesterday morning. A telegram from Mr. Warren to THE UPPER DBS MOINES states that Mr. Cravath died at 8 o'clock Monday evening as the result of an over-dose of laudanum. The funeral will be held this afternoon at 8 o'clock. The news of Mr. Cravath's death will come as a shook to many friends in Algona. The loss of his wife recently they knew to be a great blow to him, but even his nearest relatives did not anticipate auch sudden collapse. He was to have visited in Algona soon, and his letters received here indicated that he was bearing up bravely in hla loneliness. THE UPPER DES MOINES does not have at this time any sufficient information at hand from which to give an account of hie life. He was in the neighborhood of . 67 years of age. It was in 1872 that he came to Algona, and for a time engaged in the practice of law with Chas. Birge. In 1875 he bought THE UPPER DES MOINES of J. H. Warren and until 1879 was its editor and owner. Shortly after selling the paper he returned to Whitewater, where he has since lived, frequently visiting In Algona. Before coming west he had held an Important state office in Louisiana in reconstruction days, and had spent some years In the south. Mr. Cravath was a clear headed lawyer, an exceptionally bright newspaper paragrapher, he had great talent in many lines. He was a friendly man, social and jovial, always looking on the bright side and making life pleasant for those about him. Hie lonely death will appeal to all who knew him, and cause a feeling of unaffected sorrow. A DELIBERATE ACT. From a letter received this morning from Mr. Warren we quote a paragraph showing how deliberately Mr. Cravath arranged his departure: "He took a dose of laudanum, added to which ho made assurance doubly sure by flxliipr the coal stove so that the room would rapidly and surely fill with coal gas. Before doing this he fastened the room tightly so no gas could escape. As nearly as can be known he did these things about 10:30 Sunday night, deliberately undressing and lying down on«a rug in: front of the stove (in the bath room) to await results. His death came at 8 p. m. Monday. He wrote many letters to family and friends— the burden of them all being that he hoped he was going to Join his wife, an act whioh had been with him a fixed determination during the past thirty years. In one letter he says: "Before iny wife's death I was of the opinion that all individuality ceased with death. Before the burial I was convinced that individual life is continuous. I should then have followed her in despair; I now follow her in hope." It was one 01 the most deliberately planned and executed suicides of which there is a record. •THE WEEK'S MEETINGS. W. .C. T.
