TttB CM** MS MOINES! tnw A WfflNMDAY A STOLEN BABt OUTS A Fl&tJRE. Gfrief-stHcketi Mother in Search of 5tte* Lost One—Thfe Botmdi 6<t County to raise cattle but that's not Billy Paetz's experience. He sold 80 head to Mr. Carson, a stock dealer o! Webster City, and Went to Chicago with them Saturday. He returned with a little less than $6,000, about $75 per head. That beats selling corn for 21 cents a bushel, but of course everybody can't make ft success at raising stock. The LuVefrne neighborhood furnished a little tragedy Iftst week, A woman came to Fort Dodfce looking for a 14 month's baby that her .husband had stolen. She was a Mrs* Seth Rogers. Her story moved men to tears who have for years been hardened to all sorts of gHef and misery. The Messenger tells the story'. Mr. and Mrs. Seth Rogers came here last March, and with Mr. Rogers' parents, moved out on the Plannlgan farm. There were domestic difficulties, and a short time ago Rogers sent his wife to her parents' home, Ayrshire, saying he would rent a house in town and that in the future they would live alone. A week later he went to Ayrshire and secured a bill of sale of their household goods. Two weeks, passed by and Rogers wrote his wife saying that he had secured a position on a farm near Livermore and told her to come there to meet him. The trusting wife complied and reached Llverniore during the day time. Asking when they should go out to his new place, she was told that a team was after thetn. About dark Rogers came In and said the team was there, and for Mrs. Rogers to prepare for the journey. While she was getting ready he said he would take the baby out und got him some bananas.

Ho himself kissed her with unwonted tenderness, and from that time to this nothing has been seen of either man or child. Mrs. Rogers waited and waited but no one returned. Finally becoming unable to contain her uneasiness she descended and made inquiries, but nothing could be learned of the whereabouts cff the missing ones. All that night Mrs. Rogers waited nearly distracted with grief, and the next morning she was partially deranged. Accompanied by her father and uncle she reached here Friday and -attempted to call on Mr. Rogers' people at the Flanagan farm. They went out in the evening but saw nothing or no one but a large mastiff, who permitted no one to approach. Saturday the distracted mother returned to her home in Ayrshire. It is not known whether or not legal proceedings will be adopted to recover the child. The mother is sick with grief and anxiety^ _ Bur t Monitor. , Robert Lane is putting up a hotel at Titonka, which is up and enclosed. We are evidently going to lose him as a citizen of Burt. The moment he gets ready for boarders he will no doubt have a good run of business, for some of the carpenters who are at work there now are obliged to go two miles for. board and pay $4.50 at that. Wesley News. The business men of Titonka have decided to build sidewalks at once. Three blocks, each side of the street, have already been contracted for. A ditcher Is at work tiling and the town will have a fine sewerage system to start with. . The Misses Emma Rowe, Jane and Anna Longbottom attended the second number of the lecture course at Algona Tuesday evening and remained all night and until yesterday noon. They were promised a permit for the morning stock train, but when morning came the agent refused to let them have it. Consequently they could not return until 11:10 on the passenger. Swea City Herald. The four-months-old baby of Mr, and Mrs. Earl Robinson, north of town, died Monday afternoon after a week's illness and the remains were taken to Algona yesterday for interment. The bereaved parents have the sympathy of all in their sad affliction — the loss of their first born. On Thursday night of last week some thieves gained entrance to Johnson & Pearson's store by the use of a key in the south door and carried away about 14 suits of clothes, a half dozen overcoats, and a quantity of gloves and mittens. The theft was so thoroughly arranged and piles of clothing put in shape that the loss was not discovered until Saturday, though the absence of one pile of coats was noticed on Friday. I'rpf. Sifert in Trouble. Buffalo Center Tribune: Prof. Sifert was called before the school board Tuesday afternoon to give his reason for brutally punishing one of the young ladies of the school. It is stated be struck Miss Hubbard over the head with a book or pamphlet 22 times. Any man who cannot control himself is unfit for teaching school and it is a well known fact that Prof, Sifert lets his temper get away with him.

Mrs. Esther H, Kiester Jordan was born Aug. 27, 1812, and died Nov. 8, 1898, at midnight, aged 86 years, two months, and 12 days. The deceased was born In Franklin, Penclleton county, Va., where she lived until about 1848, then moved toQulncy, Ills., where she resided five years, during which time her husband and two children died.

K. Jordan of Glidden, Iowa, until 1887, since then she has been almost constantly with her daughter, Mrs. A. E. Swenzy of Scranton. She was the mother of six children, grandmother of 17, and great grandmother of two, Miss Irene and Master Ralph Ramsay of Seattle, Wash. The'deceased was of a kind, loving disposition, most self sacrificing and willing to do whatever she could to help others. She was an earnest Christian and attended church whenever her health would permit. The funeral services were held in the Maple Grove church, conducted by the Rev. S. J. Huffman. oFCorwlth, pursuing a northwesterly course into the lap of luxury at Algona, Is a great high way of commerce. There are two streaks of rust and a right of way from Belmond over through Ffed Luick's pasture towards the rising sun that have laid there so long that the turkeys nest in the gum weeds on the center of the track.

There was at Clarion last Friday meeting of the program committee for the next meeting of the U, D. M. E. A, at Eagle Grove Feb. 16 and 17. Bro. Barnes of the Eagle Grove Times, Bro. Mayne of. the Emtnetsburg Reporter, and Bro. Platt of the Iowa Falls Sentinel, with Al. Adams, secretary were all present. This was the first time in years that a program committee had all been together. The meeting was held at the Monitor office, and the boys put a good deal of business into the short session. A list of seven or eight subjects was outlined and a question box arranged for. Questions and suggestions are solicited. The secretary is to assign the special subjects and complete the program by the early part of January. Tho prospect now is that one of the very best meetings in the life of the association will be held at Eagle Grove on the dates noted, A man named Adams now owns the old Wheeler farm near Sac City. Instead of renting out the 5,600 acres that constitute the farm, Mr. Adams runs it himself. Over 100 men and teams are employed from spring until husking is over. One dealer mentions as an item of what they eat that he sells them two cases of eggs (60 dozen) a day. A week ago husking was going on. Sixty-five teams were in the corn fields. They are cribbing 4,000 bushels a day. The corn crop of this farm will this year amount to 240,000 bushels, all cribbed on the place. That this big farm is well farmed is proved by the yield of one 40 acres, being on an average of 83 bushels per acre, weighed into the crib at 80 pounds to the bushel. And yet Mr. Wheeler sold this Iowa farm to go to Texas and grow up with the country. MONEY TO LOAN Fine Repairing. Boots made to order. Exclusively Boots and Shoes, Boston Block, ALGONA, IOWA.
