THE MOINES: ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, FEBBUAHY 8, 1899. THIS LINE IS A PUZZLER, Survey tot a Railway from Madelia, Minn., to the Iowa Line. T. &. Wand Writes from Itavnna an Interesting Letter — Miscellaneous Comity News. Among all the railway rumors the most puzzling Is of the line from Ma- aelia, Minn., down to the Kossuth line in Eagle or Grant. There seems to be something in it, for the manager of the Minneapolis, Sioux City & Omaha tells the Fairmont Sentinel that a construction company has been organized for building a road from Madelia to the state line; that the branch will not be extended further than the state line this year aud it is quite probable that the company will not build more than six or eight miles or farther south than Fairmont this year; that it is the intention of the company to strike the state line in range 29, East Chain. Fairmont has visited the officials with a delegation nnd in answer to a letter from tho citizens Mantiger Scott writes: Yours Sflth, with reference to meeting of business men of Fairmont, received and in reply will any that wo 1m vo engineers in tho field malting survey for a line from Mndel- ia, Minn., in a southerly direction through counties of Watonwan and Martin to a point on the boundary lino between Minno sola and Iowa, in township 101 north, range 29 west or range 30 west, in Martin county, a distance of about 40 miles. What can bo tho object of reaching the Kossuth line and stopping? If tho lino is to coino on into Kossuth where will it hit? _ Conditions In Cubn. T. S. Waud writes to tho Gormania Standard from Havana: The country may bo very rich, but a great many of tho natives are worse oil than nothing. I never saw so many beggars in all ray life; whenever they see an American they swarm around like so many flies; if you go into a restaurant they will follow you to tho table. At first we would give them pennies, for they look so hungry and pitiful, but you soon become hardened and tell them to "vamosa," which means "get." Some of the kids are no larger than little Kinny, and they are so poor and guant, there is nothing but skin and bones. They will come out to cum)) and actually fight for the scraps from our plates. Lots of the Cubans have no homes, and when night comes on they roll up In some old sacks and go to sleep on the sidewalks. I wish you could see some of the houses. They are dirty as pig pens. Wood is very scarce in Cuba, so stone and plaster are used for the sides and tiles for the roofs. In the country houses are built of nothing but bark, straw and grass, nnd as the ladies are not very good housekpepers you can imagine the condition of things. Of course these houses belong to the poorer classes and you must not get the idea that there are no wealthy people here, for both in the city and country there are some of the finest villas and grounds that I ever saw. Tho Indians at 1'lpestoue. Wesley News: John Studer, who is here from Plpestone, Minn., brought with him a large collection of curiosities in the shape of pipes, napkin rings, imitation oak leaves, small Indian matchetes, etc., made from the stone after which that city was named. The greatest curiosity to us was the Indian peace pipe. It is the genuine article, such as is only used by the natives. Mr. Studer takes pleasure in telling of their curious ways. He says that one pipe is sufficient for 20 Indians, and that they smoke the pipe one at a time. The pipe is passed from one to another soon as each has taken a puff, and that without even looking at their neighbors. While smoking this pipe they sit in a row and when the last man has taken his puff he carries the pipe to the first man, A great many Indians are living near the city. Mr. Studer has a factory there and employs in the neighborhood of 20 young Indians daily during the summer to manufacture goods from their sacred rock, for which he has a great sale. _ IjCdyard E. H. Stephens returned Thursday from a few days' business and pleasure trip to St. Paul. While there he took in the great wrestling match between the big Turk and MoLeod. Alice Wunn, daughter of C. H. Wunn, southwest of town, met with an accident the fore part of the week by a piece of a toy buzz saw breaking ofl while in motion and striking her eye and cutting it some. J-iuVerne News.
