Opposition to His Suit for a Young JJady's Hand Supposed to Have Been the Cause. Coronor Morse was called to Bancroft Wednesday morning by the sui- i cide of Sam Ernst, who lived about six |,miles northwest of town. The young • man had hung himself in the barn and was dead when discovered. No reason | for the act is positively known, but it ; is assumed by all that his affection for |ayoung)ndy named Osterbauer was I the cause. It seems the two had been rengaged to be married, but the lady's I parents objected and sent her to a con|vent. The following details are given by |he Bancroft Register: He had gotten tfp and dressed about daylight without Baking his brother, Henry, with whom J T slept, and gone out. When Henry _ it up he thought- nothing of his brother having preceded him, and ^ r |tarted to do the chores. Going to the ifgranary to get some grain for the M *~~'sea he was horrified upon opening * -,-,--' granary door to find the lifeless ^ftody of his brother hanging from one 'of the rafters. The body was still yarm, but life was extinct. He had fallen a new five-eighths inch rope, Climbed onto the partition of one of the '-is about eight feet high and stand- j on this fastened one end of the rope I a rafter so it would hang between iwo and three feet from the partition on which he stood. Then fastening ]he other end about his neck with a Jrith a slipnoose he had slipped down |o his death. Prom the way the rope Jhad cut into his neck and left its mark Ion the rafter over which it was fastened fit would seem that he had leaped down Rafter adjusting the fatal noose, though there was no dislocation of the vertebrae. His feet were within six inche of the floor as he hung. The day before he had worired abou the place as usual and none of the fam ily had any reason to suspicion hecouk entertain such a thought or intention He.left no word or message of hi motives for the rash act: he was strong active, in the beat of health, apparent ly a happy member of a happy, pros perous, and contented family, and th only thing to which a cause can Ix, traced is the fact that he had for a time kept company with a neighbor's daughter, who went to Milwaukee lasl |year; he had written her, but the ladj |with whom she was staying had ans- fewered requesting that the correspond- |ence be discontinued." That was some |;time last winter, and he has never, so |far as we can learn, since then given |Jii8 folks any reason to think he was |lbrooding over nny sorrow or disap- ' pointment. and intelligent interest he has taken in this organization, but because of the record he made in the war as an officer, after ho had served as a private. He is one of the few men on whom was bestowed the token and badge of special courage in battle. In electing Col. Clarke the Iowa Commandery has shown that at least once in a while an organization selects as its official head the man who is a natural and actual leader. EGGS wanted at Taylor's.

This is Algona's year to celebrate the Fourth of July, and it is not too early to be planning on a program. Who will make a move or call a public meeting? Mrs. Baldwin, the milliner south of the court house, has bought theCoqnan building and lot she is occupying, paying $1,500. The deal was completed last week. ter salary than she now gets and will accept. It gives her a needed vacation. Very many in Algona will regret that she is to sever her connection with the schools. The Courier tells several stories about Geo. Holloway of Bancroft being mistaken for Congressman Dolllver! put misses the best one. George not png ago was coming out of the Cat'ho- Mo church when one of Dolliver's supporters said to a bystender in an awestruck tone, "I didn't know Dolliver was a Catholic." $ EVERYBODY is invited to call for a free drink of soda water at Studley's harmacy on Thursday, May 18, after 1 p. m, I JUST remember that the Virginia l|id glove is one of the best made.

That is a stroke of commendable enterprise. W. C. Danson visited Kanawha last week and says it is the prettiest town site in this part of the state outside of Algona. Everybody says it is handsomely located. The Beggar Prince opera Monday evening proved to be the Mascot, under a new title. The company rendered it well but on account of the storm a small audience was out. Supt. Van Erdewyk is to address the public school of Bancroft next week Friday evening, the occasion being the annual commencement. He will give an excellent address. Dr. Geo.

Judge Quarton decided that Charley Plumley could not bo held for his share of his father's estate which he got under the will by his sale to Roe of his interest ns heir-n.t-!aw. It WHS a hard fought case and will be appealed. The evidence showed that Roe knew what ne was about or thought he did, and that he got exactly what he paid for. The social union program Friday evening was one of the best given this winter. Mrs. Sheetz read an excellent paper on Millais, Mrs. Williams told about a mathematical genius who be§ an his career in Erie, Pa., and Rev. uckow discussed the trust problem, on the whole deciding that trusts are a threat to the business interests of the country. The public library trustees and managers of memorial hall had a conference yesterday. The result is that, the Grand Army puts in a new floor, electric lights, and papers the library room, and the library association rents for three years at $60 a year. The room is convenient'for the library and with those improvements will be very desirable. The Halsey-Everlngham case comes on again in the supreme court next week. Geo. E. Clarke will be able to go down but Col. Clarke will make the argument. This is on a motion for a rehearing In the supreme court. It hardly seems credible that a rule will be established that allows commission men to make charges that they do not report to their clients, and a rehearing seems probable. The annual Sunday school convention of the county opens tomorrow at 1 o clock In the afternoon. Tomorrow evening addresses will l>n given by Rev. Mason of Wesley and Rev. Clogg of Whittemore. The exercises occupy all of Friday, and Friday evening Rev. Moore of Bancroft and Rev. Whitfield of Burt speak, It is to bo a. big convention and the program will be worth hearing throughout.
