THIS UM'Mi MB M01KKS: AUiOSA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 26, 1899 tO YOTI OH A NEW PLAN, Bnffalo Township Will Eipress Itself on thfe Central School Idea. Joe Stahl "Wrttes from Klondike— Bailey on ilnllroads— General ??ew8 of the County. Buffalo township is to vote Saturday on the proposition to build a central school in Titonkfl. The town of Titonka will vote and all the totvnsbip outside of Titonka 1*111 vote, the ballots being kept separate. In order to be legal the proposal must receive a majority in the territory outside of the town. This will be the first vote ever taken on this plan hereabouts, and while it may not be adopted now it ought to be. Buffalo township will never have so good an opportunity to secure the best possiWe country school system as it has now. No one predicts what the outcome will be. The Tllonkn Hallwny. Bailey: The Lath & Northwestern has made its regular trips this spring to the surprise of everyone, as the lies were laid either on top of the ground or iu the mud. Perry Pox makes a good railroad man; when the train comes to a couple of feet of water they shut the front draft, get a good start and go through. Then the fireman bails out the smoke stack, they kindle the fire again, everything gets washed clean and away they po. They have got old Cap's high frolic ram that throws his water up hill up on the line now, and will soon have the-right-of way so dry that the mud turtle shells will warp when they cross it. A Titonka man shipped a crate of ducks to Garner and they gained a pound apiece eating pollywogs that the cowcatcher threw in the nlr. That road does a good business and .will be graded, surfaced, mortgaged and always be a railroad just the same. It is a mouumeut to "grit" aud shows what can be t done by men who stick together and work for one common purpose. Cyclone Cnvew Near I>u Verne. The board of directors of Venion township, Humboldt county, will have cyclone caves built this spring at the seven different school bouses in tiiat township. They are to be eight feet in diameter and of brick. The walls are to bo four inches to a heighth of four and a half feet, with an eight inch wall on that. Vernon is next to Lu Verne and the News editor reports this interesting improvement. Ilaiicroft'H Catholic School. The contract for building the new parochial school at Bancroft has been let to Jacobs & Koeuig for $3,900. The building will be frame instead of brick veneer, as the foundation is not thought to bo strong enough for the latter. Hancroft Hej;lHtcr. Ex-Auditor Calkins says his proposed wholesale grocery in Algonais a sure thing, and it can't be figured out as anything but a profitable investment. There will probably be some Bancroft money in the outer- prise. Stahl's men this week finished the portable chute from which King and Queen, Holloway's high plungers, will make their plunge this season. The platform is 27 feet above the base, and as the water level is always below the bottom of the chute timbers it will be a good long plunge. Swen Clly Herald. Ben. Knutson shot a hole through his thumb last week with a 23-caliber rifle and is not doing much these days. Myron McAninch, who worked here two years ago in the Farmers' elevator, and brother of the McAninch brothers north of town, died suddenly ut his homo near Webster City last week Wednesday from appendicitis. One night last week the depot was broken open and two kegs of beer stolen. Suspicions pointed very strongly to the guilty parties and nest morning Agent-Wherry received a remittance through the mail to more than cover.the amount of the loss. J. A. Cronholm was here last week looking after business matters, and while here disposed of his house to Carl Anderson. The place is one of the nicest in Swca City, and taken at the consideration for which it was sold, §1,875, is a cheap one. JjUVeriie The Northern Iowa District Conference of the Gorman Lutheran church will meet in Lu Verne next April. Twins were born to E. L. Parr and wife last Sunday. Both are doiog well. Mrs. Parr has been very low for the past week, but Is now gaining and out of danger. Wesley News. Miss Emma Rowe of Algoua and Miss Tanner have accepted positions at Lake City for the next school year. We are sorry to lose them from the Wesley schools, but at the same time we congratulate them on having secured places iu a larger school, Miss Anna Longbottom has signed her contract for her present place for another year; she is the only one of our present corps of teachers who will stay next year. At an adjourned meeting of the town council last Friday evening, Thos. Turgeson was re-elected marshal), and Fred Rogers •was elected street commissioner. Wlilttemore Champion. Whittemore will soon be without a mayor. Norman L. Cotton hat) been chosen as cashier of the bank to be established at Lone Rock on the new railroad this spring. A better cashier than Mr. Cotton could not have been selected. They expect to- get started about the first of next mouth, and Mr. Cotton will move his family there as Boon as a house can be erected. Geo. Munch went to Emmetsbux-g Tuesday morning. He will work for W. S. Wll- COK In the egg business there this summer. Mrs. R. M- Batch and children leave next Monday for Absarokeo, Mont., where R. M. Hatch has bought a sheep ranch. At tbe musical service at the M. E. church W. S. Wilcox will sing two solos. Mr. WUcojr is always acceptable to a Whittemore audience. Jjedyard Miss Mable Altwegg was obliged to discontinue her school In the Torrin district op account ot diphtheria, which is prevalent in Jhat locality. E, H, Stephens started his men to baling liay near ifee siding Wednesday morning. He has 82 stacks at that place, which . be will bale up and ship at once. Ex-Supervisor W. J. Burton has moved to Elmore, where he will make his future home. We regret to see Mr. Burton leave us but wish Win vbe best of success in his new location. Joe stftfcl In tlie Klondike, Part* ol » letter from Joe Stahl of Ban- orpf t frpro the Klondike are given by the Register j flesays U has been* little g topnj*4]Wtog ti*l short days" when they Sidn'tsee tU§»ujo for 40 days. The iner, pupv haj been dflvyn as low W 67} wUeft not more Iban 80 below the weather was considered flae, fttjkt what 10 above would be eTfthPtbPee has worn «n rt»£ fts winter, Tb,ey were n ipn. a, wood ooawwfc, receiving cut and deHyevea oae and a contract was for 40 cords, 25 of which they had finished. Joe's skill as a mechanic is recoghized evidently, and be made 980 for 15 hours* repair work oh a steam boiler a short time before he wrote. Hundreds of people were going out of the country, cursing their luck and the folly of going there; they are of that numerous class who went there iu the belief that all they'd have to do would be to " walk up one of the creeks, fill a grain sack with gold and return." It takes time, experience and hard work to get gold, but there is lots of it there for those who are able and willing to get it out. A nuggett was taken out of the Eldorado mine weighing seven pounds, worth f 1,400. That is about three miles from where they are located. With the coming of spring the days lengthen out rapidly there, and on June 25 they will have 21 hours of sunshine out of the 24. He may come back in the fall, but if he does will return again in the Winter, as he considers the Klondike the only real place to make money. Fire at l^oiie Rock. J. B. Hutchinson had quite a little fire a a week ago Saturday night. His smoke house caught fire and he lost between 400 and 500 pounds of meat, also his carpenter tools and some machinery. If it bad been a little later in the evening his house and contents might have been consumed, which would have been a serious loss. Hurt Monitor. F. E. Allen has the stone wall for I. G. Schryver's house completed, and the building is now going up. G. L. Carroll of Union lately received the sad news of Uie death of his father, atBing- hampton, N. Y. He was well up in years, a prominent man in his community, and of considerable means. G. S. Angus and wife are expected from the south today or tomorrow. They have been visiting iu Chicago this week. H. O. liuell bas already assumed his duties as assistant cashier in the Burl bank. He looks well behind the bank counter. Hardy may never be very corpulent but we wouldn't he surprised if he developed into a bloated bondholder. He will move up from Algona us soon as he can procure a suitable house. Tltonlcn Topic. We have the Titonka Gun club, consisting of 20 members. Traps and clay pigeons are ordered, and a building will be started in a few days for the exclusive use of the club. It has been proposed that each business firm doniito two carloads of gravel towards the grading of Main street. Mr. Fox thinks he can furnish gravel at the rate of §1.50 per car load. Messrs. Ramsay and Towncr, who are putting in the planing mill, have received a proposition from our business men to put iu additional power and furnish the city with electric lights. The plant can be put in for a very slight expense considering the value the town will receive, aiid we would not be at all surprised if our electric lights were turned on now before the Algona plant is finished. Some time ago a number of our loading citizens commenced to count up the ball S layers who were among the Titonka resi- etits. It was found that there were some fine players here and it is now an assured fact that the Titonka Indians will be ready to do up any nine that is brave enough to face them in a battle upon the diamond. In the near future we will publish the names of the nine. The town site company has already set aside grounds for the use of the nine. Church Notices for Good Hope. Rev. H. L.

The May Atlantic opons with an article upon the Australasian Extension of Democracy H. do R. Walker, who discusses the management of affairs, especially financial, in the five great Pacific colonies of England, their methods of governmental loans, their indebtedness, their banking deposits and tax regulations, and their relief and pension systems. H- H- -(The Century's plans for the treat ment of the Spanish war culminate with the publication in the May number of a remarkable series of pape'rs in which the commander of every American vessel but one describes his share in the battle off Santiago, which resulted in the complete destruction of Ceryera's fleet. The only exception is in the case of the Oregon, whoso commander, Capt. Clark, endorses Lieut. Ebcrle's account of that ship's participation in the fight, and himself contributes a criticism of the Spanish admiral's strategy. "The Story of the Captains" is written with remarkable animation and in wholly untechnical language. -j- -s- -»A portrait of "Little Susan Boudinot," daughter of Elias Boudinot, president of the continental congress, is the frontispiece of the May St. Nicholas, The poem by Ethel Parton which follows Itcelebi'ates the refusal of this nine-year-old maiden of the last century to drink a cup of taxed tea at the homo of the royal governor. In the same magazine there is a description of a picnic in Japan attended by four little Americans; and of a white baby's journey on an elephant's back. For Sale Three Stallions Come and see them. JOYS OF MARRIED LIFE. One of the Ore* tea J at Them I* th* Multiplicity of Social Obligation*. "My dear," said a newly-waftied young woman on the South side to her husband the other evening, says the Chicagro Inter Ocean, "I have planned to have mother and father cotne to supper with us and spend the evening to-morrow. Mary Johnston said to-day that she and her husband were going to call on us Thursday evening. Friday evening is the dance at the Kenwood club, and you know you promised to take me to see Sol Smith Russell Saturday night," "But, my dear," protested her husband, "we have got to go over and see the old folks pne night this week. And I told Billy Mathew that I would call him tip to-mtorrow and tell him what night before Sunday we would be at home. And then you know I absolutely have to write that speech this week. And where do I get any time to read or rest?" "Yes, I knew there was something else," put in his wife, disregarding hJs question. "There is a musicale at Mrs, White's Saturday evening. But we can't go to that, I suppose." "My dear," declared her husband, solemnly, "it is all rrg-ht to talk about 'doubling your joys and halving your sorrows' when you get married. It Is a great deal more true to say you double your engagements and halve your time." LEFT HIS HAND AT SAN JUAN. That Wim Why a Chicago Street Cm Did Not A»»l«t • Woman. He climbed aboard the car slowly and with evident weakness, and dropped intothe only vacuntseat, notwithstanding the fact that several women who had entered with him were left standing, and that one of them was so heavily loaded with bundles that she couldn't even make use of a strap. This worn? an planted herself directly in f $pnt of the weak-looking man. and swayed to and fro grimly before him, glaring angrily down into his emaciated countenance the while. Presently the car lurched suddenly around a corner, and one of her bundles fell to the floor, with a great sound of breaking glass and china. The indignant woman gathered the fragments of her ruined household treasures with hasty, impulsive movements, and, straightening up, fairly snorted at the man before her, says the Chicago Inter Ocean. • "You might at least have put out a hand to save it," she told him, contemptuously. The man colored, hesitated and then, spoke quietly: "I have no hand on that side, madam," he said, while all the other passengers listened with sympathetic interest; "I left it at San Juan." BRIDGING BEHRING SEA. Heaolta of the Deposit of Irumen»e QunntitieH of Debris by the Mighty Yukon Rlveis Prof. W. J. McGee, of Washington, declares that two slow but interesting changes are taking place in. Behring sea. The immense quantity of debris that is borne down the Yukon from its sources and sides is being deposited in the sea beyond the mouth of that mighty stream, and its weight causes the bed of the sea to subside. A corresponding rise in the earth's crust is produced along the chain of the Aleutian islands. Now, not only are the islands themselves increasing in size in consequence of being lifted up out of the water, but ne.w islands are being formed in the gaps between the others. In some instances the new islands are the result of the rise, and in others they are the result of voloanio action. Most of the Aleutians are of volcanic origin, and they mark the position of a fold in the earth's crust that is predisposed to eruption. In time, Prof. McGee says, there is likely to be a natural bridge from America to Asia along- this route, but he admits that nobody now living is going to see it. Tim Sou/th Pole. L'Eclair, of Paris, recently published an elaborate article, "tres dooumente," signed Dagoubert, andconcerningitself with the discovery of the south pole, According to Dagoubert the region about the pole is inhabited and organized as a kingdom, having the name "L'Btat d'Adelie." It is said to contain 100,000 inhabitants, of,whom'000,000 are French and 40,000 Papuans. A traveler who, Dagoubert says, happened to reach this country of the south pole has lately arrived in Paris. He'is about to apply to the ministry and proposes a protectorate of the country and a subsidy for it of 40,000,000 francs a year. There is sold to be much gold in th« country, which is jealously guarded by the inhabitants. Some notice is being paid M. Dagoubert by scientific men, and he is likely, it is said, to attract as much attention in Paris as Louis de Hougemont and bis Australian tales did in London, The Snn'«t Site. In view of this enorinous distance it will be easily surmised that the little disc seen with the smoked glass is of colossal dimensions. In bald figures its diameter is 866,500 miles, but this la meaningless without some helpful simile. It is> easier to comprehend the mooii'e distance from the earth, say 840,000 miles; let us suppose our planet placed at the yery center of the sun (first "hollowed out" for the express purpof e), and the mow reyoMpg about It in its everyday orbit—not pnly un- trainmeled by the "shell" of the sun, bwt actually learing room enough fpr the revolution of another moon J» »n orbit more than 199,000 miles further &way, without fracturing the shell 1 In ptfeer words, fee sua is l,8ftQ,gfifl times To Fight Disease successfully during the changeable spring and hot summer months, the system should receive a toning uj> now.
