McCotnb's new steam laundry at once. He has bought the building south of the Republican office, used as a flour warehouse for a long time, will movoitback, and build a two-story front in imitation of brown stone. He had an arrangement for using tho basement of the new hotel, but by mutual consent both, he and Mr. Durdall agreed to let it drop. He will put in a first-class illy laundry building. Hotel Contract $80,250. O. B. Durdall's contract with J. M. 3owun and O. W. McMurray is to build the new hotel with heat and electric light wires for $20,260. He will put In a gas plant besides. This is i very low price considering the size of :he building. Tho basement is already •>retly well excavated and all the men and teams in town available have had a job. Work will be pushed very rapid- y. School HOUBO Foundation In. A big force of masons has been lay- ng stone in the now school house baso- nent tho past week. The board is put- ,ing heavy footing stone at tho bottom * all the walls. The new building S. J. Parker of Hampton got a unanimous vote. There were eight candidates for major, three of whom were to be elected. Only one got a majority, Capt. Otto Hile of Boone, who received 263 votes. The others were: Kreger of Cherokee 203, Lee of Webster City 188, Refsell of Emmetsburg 185, Kirk of Sioux City t74, Gooch of Sioux Citv 183, Odle of Hull 09, Banyard of Sioux City 37. Company F voted for Col. Humphrey all but one vote, and gave Hile and Ref- seil a solid vote for majors, It divided on the third between Kreger, Odle and Lee. Its vote for Col. Humphrey is very flattering to him, considering the attacks made on him in Algona last year. WANTS TO MARR1 HKLW, 0.0.

O. O. Braoke of Germania has again attained'notoriety as the following dispatch indicates: NEW YORK, April 24.-tS P eoial.] A well dressed man, who said he was Ole Braoke of Germania, Iowa, was arrested this morning on the steps of Miss Helen Gould's residence, Forty-seventh street and Fifth avenue just as he was about to ring the door bell, For some time before ascending the steps of the Gould residence Bracke had walked up and down in front of the house gazing up at the windows. He was watched all tho time by a central office detective, who was on duty at the house because of a complaint which had been made by Miss Gould that Bracke had annoyed her by writing love letters and calling up on the telephone. Braoke was arraigned before Magistrate Crane this afternoon. He said he Was an author and was engaged in " deep researches." He admitted writing and telephoning Miss Gould, but said his intentions were "most honorable." He was committed to Bellevue hospital for examination as to his sanity. BRACKE AT HOME. Brucke is a well known character hereabouts. A year ago he notified parties in England that he had found a dispatch from Andree's balloon, and they sent to New York and New York sent to Geo. E. Clarke to look the matter up. Bracke has often written communications to THE UPPER DES MOINES, most of which have gone to the waste basket. Ho had printed a book on tiie outrage of the Cuban war not long ago. He is erratic if not crazy. ANOTHER VERSION. The New York correspondent of the Chicago Tribune writes as follows: "I am a free American arid I have a right to fall in love with Helen Gould or any other woman if I want to. The fact that I do it doesn't show I'm crazy, but that I'm sensible," Ole Bracke of Germania, Iowa, a well dressed man, 42 years old, said this when he was arrested today on the charge of being insane and annoying Miss Gould. He had read so much about the: philanthropist that he admired her, and as he was looking for a wife lie resolved that he would give her a chance to accept him. He wrote her two weeks ago that he was coming from his western home to see her, but she took no notice of the letter. This morning he put on a new equipment with which he had provided himself. It included a shiny silk hat, a light overcoat, patent leather shoes, and a sunset-colored necktie. He left the Westminster hotel, where he was living, and walked confidently up Fifth avenue to Forty-seventh street, where Miss Gould dwells, For a while, he pacod up and down. After making: a few laps he walked up the stoop and knocked on the door. Detective Sergeant Krauch, who had been waiting for Braoke, ran up, seized him, and carried him off to the Yorkville court. The detective told Magistrate Crane that the prisoner had annoyed Miss Gould for «, long time by writing letters to her and calling for her over the telephone, "All that is true," Mr. Braoke admitted, " but it is not a crime to write to Miss Gould, nor is it a felony to seek to converse with her over -the 'phone. I am an author of some distinction and a scholar. As you see my personal appearance is in my favor. In every way I should be a desirable addition to the visiting list of any honorable lady," and he smiled with great self-satisfaction, " My letters to her were couched' in the most respectful terms,!' he went on, " and there was nothing ,fn them that justified the police in effeetingmy capture." Bracke was sent to Bellevue tp have his sanity inquired into, MANY METHODfSTS IN TOWN, Tonlarht a Tleturiied Mlsstonni-y from India Will Speak.
