THE UPPER DES MOINES: ALGONA. IOWA. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 25 1899, BURNED OUT AT LU VERNE Jo. Steil is a Loser from a Bad Blaze There Last Week, Canse of the *4re Still lleitmins ft Mystery—Miscellaneous News 1?tom All tlic County. Jo. Steil, our former Algona merchant but lately ot Lu Verne, had a (ire in his C. O. D. clothing house last week. The News tells about it: It started in the corner by Mr. Steil's desk, where'ho has a waste paper box, and was first discovered by Mrs. Mason's boy, upstairs, who discovered smoke in the room and they gave the alarm. As to how the flro started no one is able to explain and it will most likely remain a mystery, the only explanation being thut there must have been some matches in or near the box and it was started by the mice. Those first reaching the scone found the room full of smoke and the fire bo- ginning to blaze up. Had there been a draft or had the fire not boon dittcov- ered for 10 minutes, there is no tolling where the fire would have stopped sis wo have absolutely no protection outside of two ladders and a "bucket brigade" composed of whosoever may be there and bring their water pails. Even if a bucket brigade would be of any consequence in a big fire there are not enough wells in the business portion of the town to last 10 minutes. The building is owned by B. F. Guthrle and was damnged to the ox- tent of §25, which was settled by the insurance adjuster yesterday. Joe Steil's loss is from $500 to $700. His large and fine stock of clothing and gentlemen's furnishing goods was thoroughly smoked, and some goods wore badly blackened by the smoke. Iho insurance adjuster for the company •with whom ho had his insurance will not be hero till the first of next week to settle up the loss. Hobnrt'B Shipping Record. Lu Verne News: Bro. Morgan of the Kenwick Times seems to doubt our statement as to the number of car loads shipped in and out of Lu Verne during '98, but does not show up whatRonwick lias been doing in thut time. Why, Bro. Morgan, the little town of Hobart has something like 615 cars to its credit, and Eonwick can surely compare with a town having loss than a 100 pop- ul (ition. Irvtuuloii Notes. John G. Smith has rented the Carter place to a Mr. Thompson, from northeast of Algona. The Ladies'Aid society has elected the following officers: President, Mrs. Campbell; vice-president, Mrs. Robinson; secretary, Miss Hodges; treasurer, Mrs. Puller. Liodynrd Lender. Miss Ramsey, who is teaching in the Sexton district, was called to her home at Algona last Friday by the sickness of her mother. Mr. and Mrs. H. F. Shipley returned home from their trip to Des Moines Monday evening. While there Mrs. Shipley had her eyes treated. On their return they stopped ~*~ """" IT 'Q i goods and shipped to Spencer this week, where Mrs. Calkins will reside, and Mr. Calkins will get employment, on the road. Two grading contractors have just been over the branch rond. They came into Burt Wednesday night after a walk of 25 miles over the route. They took a "personal observation" of the affair. Will Peck writes from Eagle Grove to have the Monitor sent to him at that place. He has a 1 job of firing for the Northwestern on this division. He has been through Burt several times. Tn the course of lime h3 will probably bo given a steady run. Bniicroft Ileulster. Our supervisors have fixed the compensation to be paid the assessors, figuring it at a certain per cent, of the value of taxable property assessed. The state law provides that they shall receive $2 per day for eight hours' work. Some of the assessors who claim they cannot complete their work within the time to be paid for by the board's schedule will test the matter. While at Graceville, Minn., recently G. F. Holloway bought a monstrous oil painting, a scene at Pokegama'Falls on the Mississippi, and brought it down. It is 14x61 feet, and he finds it is too large to find a place in his home. The painting may be seen at Spark's furniture store, and It will bo worth your see it. It's a great at Yale to visit with Mr. Shi ploy's parents and at Jolly to visit with a brother of Mrs. Shipley. time to go and piece of art. A FJourliiK Mill For Wesley. WESLEY, Jan 24.—The nice spring weather we are having is helping the farmers out in getting their corn husked. Fully one-half of the corn crop in this part of the county is yet in the field unhusked. There is a movement on foot to build a flour mill in Wesley. A stock company is formed, headed by the Kunz boys and others. It is hoped that this vvi'll be a go this lime. Wesley was to have had a mill built two or three times before during the past nine years, but proved to be nothing but u, wind mill. We hope this movement will mean business. A good mill will be a help to the town if properly handled. Mrs. R. J. Bidgood returned, one day last week from Chicago, where she was visiting her daughter, Mrs. C. S. Potter, for the past two months. Mrs. C. H. Peterson is visiting friends at Pecatonica, 111., her former homo. Our editor fools rather lonely now as it is the first timo during his married life that he has been leftalone. H. D. Hodges is here settling up some business matters. Mr. Hodges feels very well pleased with his new location, Madrid, Iowa, where he is running a department store. J. E. McMullon came over from Forest City and slopped over Sunday, returning' Monday. The Forest City Press is to he the name of his new paper. Feb. 3 the first issue will appear. Rev. Case commenced his revival meetings here at the M. E. church Sun- flay night. Considerable Interest is already being manifested. Mrs. A. L. Bacon of Sexton spent Sunday in Wesley. C. L. Hager of Sexton was a Wesley caller Monday. Our Wesley creamery company have secured the services of Mr. Dickman as their bullet-maker. Mr. Dickman is a good buttermaker and comes highly recommended.

As our readers are awure, we have been able to secure for them this year an unusually advantageous clubbing arrangement. which includes the Iowa Homestead, its Special Farmers' Institute editions, the Poultry Farmer, the Farmers' Mutual Insurance Journal, and the Humane Alliance, together with our own paper, all for the surprisingly low figure of $2. Nothing like this has ever before been offered to our farmer readers. The Homestead with its Special Institute edition for January, contains 64 pages of practical farm informa tion, and reading the paper and its Special Institute editions for a year practically amounts to a liberal agricultural education. The Special Farmers' Institute edition for the present month considers four interesting, practical topics relating to farm prosperity, sheep husbandry, winter's work, etc., and on them more than 200 practical farmers ond farmers' wives in the west contribute their views and experiences, making it a remarkable collection of the best thought on western farms. The Mutual Insurance Journal and the Humane Alliance, the best of their class, should bo in every farm homo. Take advantage of this great offer.

HOXIE. JUST 30 YEAEB AGO. "One of the most needed improvements" says THE UPPER DES MOINES, "and one most affecting the present and prospective interests of Cerro Gordo, Hancock, Kossuth and Palo Alto counties, is the opening of a good wagon road from Mason City to Emmetsburg. And the next step should be procuring service on the mail route already established between these two points." The paper devotes a column to proving that people intending to locate hereabouts got to Mason City and then were switched off north into Minnesota or south towards Fort Dodge, all because there was no road west. -f- -f- H- Word came Jan. 27 that the Algona postofflce was to be made a money order office. Lewis H. Smith was postmaster. This news was especially pleasant as the editor says small sums of money sent in envelopes were gobbled up before reaching Fort Dodge by a post- offlce clerk down below, whose name of course is not given. -f- -j- -t- Henry Ford, judge of the circuit, announced that he would hold court in Algona the first Thursdays in March, June, September and December. -i- -i- 4- Wheat was 85 cents in Algona, corn 35, oats 35, butter 20@25, eggs 15. The farmer can tell how much he has gained in 30 years by noting the prices of other things: Dried apples 20 cents a pound, sugar 14@25 cents, molasses 75 cents a gallon, flour $3.50 a hundred, canned peaches 60 cents. Algona was having a big revival 30 years ago, Rev. J. H. Todd in charge. "The hall is crowded every night to its utmost capacity, Old backsliders are being reclaimed, and new converts are coming out. Our people have great reason to rejoice and be exceeding glad. The labors of Bro. Todd have been blessed to a degree he could hardly have expected." •*-•*• 4- o TUB UPPER DES MOINES celebrated the new year with a Ruggles job press. It was the first job press ever brpught to Kossuth. R. B. Warren went to Fort Dodge and bought it of B. F. Gue who was editing the Iowa Northwest. He also got 6 ),ot of type from that office, The press was brought up to ft sleigh. E. H. Warren took it when he went to Marney, and it has been lost track of since. -»•-»••*Rev.
