Ho is at tho head of the Eureka Gate company of Chicago, and holds the office of treasurer of the Midland Life Insurance company of Fort Dodge, and is one of the owners of the Fort Dodge Post.

The new through trains from Minneapolis and St. Paul to Des Moinos are at last an established fact. They were put on Monday, and met In Algona at 1:55 o'clock, one going north and the other south. Our people can now leave Algona at 1:55 o'clock, reaching Minneapolis about 8 o'clock and Des Moinea at 6:15, on a finely equipped train. The other changes In the time card are not very great. The morning train south goes through at 6:36 Instead of at 7 o'clock, reaching Des Moines at 11:30 as al present. Tha evening train south goes nt 7:54, reaching Des Moines at 1:20 a. m., and Chicago at 0:30 a. m. Following Is the local time card: Going south- Accommodation 0:35 a. m. Frnlirht \ Arrive 12:15 p. m. Flelght • 1 Leave 1:00 p. m. Passenger 1:55 p. m. Accommodation 7:54 p. m. Going north- Accommodation 7:20 a. m. Prniirht J Arrive 11:80 a. m. Ilolgllt I Leave 12:15 p.m. Passenger ; 1:55 p. m. Accommodation 10:50 p. m. Tho mails at present will come as heretofore. Prom the south the Chicago mail will come at 1:55 p. m. instead of at 2:40. Tho Des Moines mail arrives at 7:20 In the morning. From the north tho night train at 7:54 Is still the mall train, although It Is likely that an effort will he made to change to the through train. With the running of these trains the Northwestern will again compete for tho through passenger service north and south. It has the most direct line and splendid facilities, and this will soon he the main thoroughfare for travel. With the new line to Sanborn and the heavy freight that will come down from Dakota, Algona will soon be on the main line of road in the north half of Iowa.
