Office over First National bank, Algona, la. The tuberculin tests have occasioned about the same kind of an upheaval at Fort Dodge that they did In Algona when the Lund herd was condemmed. At first the Fort Dodge city milk sellers joined in a request for a test. But after three herds had buen tested the owners of the remainder retained lawyers and notified tho state veterinary to go no further. Mayor Say ere came home last week and for tho present at least operations are suspended. The first herd tested shows only 10 per cent, affected, the second herd showed about 22 per cent., but the third herd showed 87 per cent, and at this rate tho rest thought that It was time to stop before it got " up to them." In tho third herd out of 24 cattle only four were found free from tuberculosis. Among the cattle condemmed was a valuable short-horn bull. The legal phases of the umtler present a curious tangle. The cattle owners live out of the Incorporated city, but got the city council to request the examination. Now that they have been examined .all they want, they take the position that being out of the city, the city council has no authority over them. This seems to be a well taken position, but the city council meets it by passing an ordinance that no milk shall bo sold in Ft. Dodge except from tested cattle. The herd owners will resist the ordinance on the ground that the city has no legal authority to pass it. However this is, the effect will be the some, for tho matter has gone so far that no one will buy milk from herds that have not been tested. Mayor Sayers says he does not know whether ho will be compelled to go back and assist in further tests or not. He says tho danger of milk from such herds as tho last tested, where 20 out of 24 cattle had consumption, cannot bo overstated. All scientists agree that consumption is carried in milk and that the wide spread of the disease can in very many causes be traced to the use of diseased milk. Illinois has passed a law preventing cows that have not been tested being brought Into the state. Any member of the family is worthy all the good words we might say but their worth is so well known in Humbolt county people as to render any words from our pen superfluous. The occasion throughout was one of mirth, enjoyment and pleasure, and we hope the entire Sherman family will live to enjoy many such reunions. In this wish all their friends will most heartily join. ANSWERS GEO. E. BOYLE. II. P. ITntch Unpllos to Mr. Boyle's Recent Latter In the Courier. WniTTEMonn, July 28.—To tho Editor: Considering the fact that Lam not a candl date for office, either present or prospective, nor in fact, before tho public in any way, except through tho dolicato kindness of Mr. Boylo and the Courier, I really feel like apologizing both to yourselves and to your readers for asking to occupy more of of your valuable space. But when things have reached such n pass that no man in Whlttounoro, or out of it, can assort his right of free Judgment and action In elthe 1 ' municipal or county affairs, in any wise counter, to tho lordly and most arrogant will and pleasure of Mr. G. E. Boylo, without being overwhelmed In public print with a storm of villlflcatlon and slanderous abuse; and when an alleged docent newspaper is found so complaisant as to inake itself a common sower for tho discharge of such dirt upon an unoffending public;-—I say when such a condition of things becomes chronic in a community, there arises a pressing need and reason for energetic and indignant public protest. And I do hereby protest with all my soul and strength against tho longer continuation of this sort of bull-dozing terrorism ovor this community, and.I earnestly trust that the self-respecting democrats of tho county will show that they require and insist, for tho credit of their party, that thoir party paper shall keep within tho recognized limits of ordinary courtesy and decency, as well in its correspondence as in its editorials. And will say that Mr. Boyle's indecent onslaught upon myself is not tho only nor tho main reason for my rashness in taking up tho cudgels with him: for I fool rather proud of suffering in the company of such men as Gardner Cowles.

Budd of Dos Molnes have issued programs and are making all the necessary arrangements for a big three day's shoot at Arnold's parlc on the above dates. The program consists of 11 regular eyents eaoh day. Three hundred dollars will be added to the purses, and two beautiful silver cups will be given as special prizes—one to those making an average of 85 per cent, and better, and one to those making an average of less than 85 per cent. Ties to be shot off at 50 targets. The Beacon says: Messrs. Gilbert and Budd have an acquaintance among the leading shots of the country, that together with their reputation as being the best of entertainers in this line, insures a large attendance and one of the best tournaments ever held in the northwest. A PLEASANT RECEPTION. Mr. and Mrs. Thos. Shermaii Have an Enjoyable Homo Visit. The Humboldt Independent tells of a good time enjoyed by Mr. and Mrs. Thos. Sherman at the old home: Sunday, July 23, was the date which marked a merry reunion at theEdward Sherman home in Grove township, The occasion for this gathering was the presence of Tom Sherman of Bancroft and his fair bride, who were on their first visit to the old home. A few words as to Tom's successful career are not out of place here. He was born and raised in Humboldt county and as one of our boys we feel an especial Interest in all of his undertakings. When quite a young man he was elected to the position of assistant cashier of the State bank of Bancroft. A few years ago he was elected to the position of cashier in the same bank, which position he now holds. By industry and shrewdness he has accumulated considerable means, and is now the president of the new State bank of Ringsted, the owner of considerable real estate and a beautiful home in Bancroft, and one of the most respected and honored men in Kossuth county. All of our friend's ventures have proved to he successful ones, but we believe he made the most successful one of his life when he married Miss Eva Lantry of Algona, one of Kossuth county's brightest and most popular young ladies. The Sherman family showed their appreciation of Tom and his bride by gathering to do them honor. The total number present was twenty-one. Ed. Sherman of the Fort Dodge Post was unavoidably absent, Those present were Edward Sherman, Sr., and wife, Tom Sherman and wife of Bancroft, Mr. and Mrs. Zlgrang and four children of Livermore, J. P. Sherman, the genial groceryman of Eagle Grove and his friends, Miss Murphy, Miss Collins and Mr. Murphy, Miss Margaret Sherman, » teacher in the Emmetsburg school, joe, Richard and a younger brother and the listers living at hone. Mr. Sherman end wile are ors, L. NV Cotton and others of that ilk, and in fact, a largo and thick plaster of Boyle's characteristic mud is, perhaps, a good and sufficient patent of respectability, wherever tho man and his methods are well known. But thoro aro considerations not only of private rights, but of public decency, that have weight; and I have waited long and patiently for younger and abler mon than myself to take Boyle in hand and reduce him to bounds of decency, if possible, or at least to a somewhat loss blatant condition of offensivenoB, but all decent men naturally shrink from a controversy with a man whoso favorite weapons are mud and wind, and whoso simple and effective plan of nrgumont is to throw mud plentifully and continually, trusting some of it may stick; and to coin tho wind into loudmouthed damaging assertions, with a hlgh- inindodlinclifforeneo as to any known basis of fact; As to Boyle's offensive and insulting as- ortions in tho Courier of tho 21st, that I have boon all my life in Iowa a "chronic p&p-sueker" etc., will merely say that If my y& years of life and conduct in this community do not sufficiently show their falsity and absurdity, I am content to let them pass. His cry of "Cowles' boor," etc., is simply a rehearsal of the stale old pick-pocket trick of running and yelling "Stop thoif" when detected In his rascality; and it comes with a mighty fine grace after in 1898, sotting the very gutters running with beer and whiskey in his desperate effort to control tho municipal and school elections of his own town, and his frequent startling yells of "Traitor" and "Treason" are badly tarred with tho same stick. Mr. Boyle's liberality with his money, whether for good or other purposes is not questioned and when for good would do him much credit, could ho only refrain from eternally bragging about it, but loudness and much- ness of brag rather take the flno gloss off. Mr. Boyle is cautioned that his unsparing and impudent application of tho terms 11 hypocrite" and "hypocritical" to reputable citizens and their conduct is liable to cause himself to bo classed, by good people of some shrewdness with that most detestable and harmful sort of hypocrites, who, disclaiming "It restraints of morality, decency and sobriety for themselves, loudly profess to believe that all men who protend to any bettor principles are no more nor less than simply hypocrites. And there is a certain air and pretense of honesty in this frank profession of dishonesty which joined with a dash of the "bold bad bucca- ner" style, and a certain air of understanding "life" is extremely taking with many not very deep young men. Now, "perish the thought," George, that you should by any mistake bo classed among such God-Forsaken cattle; but remember " you are not entirely free from suspicion." As to your record as a republican, George, here aro a few brief notes according to my best information: 1870. Delegate to republican convention which nominated Poly Benham for clerk of courts, and then, self-appointed delegate to "peoples" ditto, and helped to make opposing nominations. 1893. Chairman of delegation to convention which nominated Col. Spencer for treasurer, and worked hard all election day for his opponent until choked and shamed off by A. A. Bruuson, late in the afternoon. 1895. Delegate to republican convention which nominated B. F, Reed for county superintendent and then went over the township with Mr. Wilkinson to help him to democratic delegation, and used your influence to convey the vote of the town for him, and also with false and treacherous promises for next year induced J. O. Rawson to withdraw, when his nomination for supervisor was practically assured, we of the west side thereby losing our member of the board. 1897. Openly bolted county and legislative ticket and practically the congressional ticket and put in time and money and hard work to insure a general republican defeat. 1898. Publicly and privately damned the republican administration, and our Iowa delegation in congress and our governor because of evils at Chickamaugua they were in no way responsible for. And now the Holy Saint, George, loudly professes a " mission" to "purify the republican party." Now possibly the party may conclude it has had quite enough " purification" upon the good old plan of bleeding, puking and purging until the patient has at least one foot in the grave; and may prefer, on the whole, to try a little restorative treatment, and it may also Assert ita undoubted right to have its -own free choice to Chicago has a " divine healer" named Dr. Dowle. THE UPPER DBS MOINES reported last week the experience that Peter Jenson of Swea City had with him. He took his boy to Chicago and received the comforting assurance from Dovvie that epileptics are possessed of ovll spirits, and can usually never be healed because of unbelief. Another of Dowle's hobbies is that hogs are also of the devil, and this hobby imparted to two worthy cranks in southern Minnesota has caused a decided sensation, One of these is Graves, formerly a Methodist evangelist, who has been before the commissioners of insanity at Worthington, but who was last week allowed to depart on his solemn promise that he would let Minnesota hogs alone hereafter. Graves has been spreading the Dowle evangel about Worthlgton and had finally converted a substantial farmer named Milton to the anti-hog creed. A great religious pig killing was at once advertised to occur at the Milton farm. A goodly crowd was present at this new religious service, and after prayer in the house and prayer in the pig pen, eight old hogs and 24 pigs were sacrificed, the weapons being a revolver, shot gun and rifle, handled by Milton's sons, Graves handing out the cartridges as part of the solemn ceremony. The little bullets for a while only wounded and mutillated the hogs, and this together with the growing indignation at the needless killing of good stock angered the crowd and Graves was soon threatened with lynching.. His arrest finally saved him. At the trial he stilted all the facts as they occurred, and tho testimony brought out that he hnd prepared n board to be erected over the hog grave with ijhe following inscription: "Whosoever doth not, bear his cross and come after me can not be my discfple. This monument erected over swine flesh killed for Jesus' sake July 18, 1899.—Lev. 1], 8." Graves is again in Chicago. The Chicago Record of Saturday reports: At the Dowie home yesterday afternoon, where are quartered about 500 persons who have come to Chicago thinking Dowle can heal them of their illness, it was said no swine flesh was served on their tables, because Dowie taught that the hog wns vile and "whosoever ate swine flesh or raised swine was not fit to enter the kingdom of heaven," ALGONA CAN'T COMPETE. The Third Annual Ijnwii Tennis Meeting to be Hold at I/Ivermore. Preparations are being made for a very large time in Livermore on the occasion of the lawn tennis tournament on Aug. 10, 17 and 18. This will be the third annual meeting of the Northwest Iowa Tennis association, and the president and secretary, J. S. Eakins and C. E. Sullivan, are seeing to it that the visitors will receive a hearty welcome and that the affair shall be ' a success generally, and they will need the cooperation of all Interested. The silver cup trophy was won by Livermore at West Bend last summer, and. the contest will be to see who carries it off this year. Some hot competition is expected from Estherville, West Bend, Alden, Clarion, Gait, Dows, Humboldt, Iowa Falls, Eagle Grove, Fort Dodge, Klemme and elsewhere. This silver cup was presented to the association by the business men of West Bend, and... the team from there will doubtless feel like putting up a pretty hot fight to recover it. On Aug. 16 the Livermore gun club will also have target and live bird contests, which will add further interest to the occasion and help to swell the crowd. The Gazette, which tells about it, says Algona is expected to be a close competitor, Algona has not been doing much at lawn tennis this year. But Germania can ably represent the county.
