Tom Howard, a young Milwaukee freight conductor on this line, fell between cars one day last week and was run over. It was about three-quarters of a mile east of the Clear Lake depot that the fatal accident occurred. Conductor Howard had left his caboose to go toward the head end and safely passed over five box cars. Next came a oar of snow fencing piled up until it was two feet higher than the box cars. This he traversed in safety, but in jumping from it to the next, a box car, he lost his footing and fell between the cui-s to the truck. At the end of one piecrf'of fencing was a big hnot almost six inches in length, and this may have caused the trouble. The marks on the car gave evidence of the terrible struggle which the unfortunate man must have made. MEETINGS TO DOME. The W. L. A. S. at reading room, Friday, 3 o'clock.

A new railroad is being built north from BismarCk, North Dakota, to tap Some of the rich agricultural lands of the Missouri valley. It will run north to Washburn and Con! Harbor, where it will tap the extensive coal deposits thero. A vast, area of excellent farming and grazing land will bo opened up, anil these lands have just been put oii th« market at from four to seven dollars per HCI-H. This railroad is being built,by Semi- tor Washburn »nd next year when the Soo railroad is built into Bismarck it will become part of thw system. It is being built under the name of Bismarck, Washburn and Ft. Buford rail- roiid, and Senator Washburn hasbought up a large tract of )and and placed it on the market. There is a great rush of settlers to North Dakota this year, and although this land has only been on the market about two weeks, already n. lartre share of it is taken. The soil is fine, a black loam with a clay sub soil and nil inlaid with coal at, a depth of from 12 to 14 feet which crops out at the lakes and rivers. The actual sotller who wants a good home for a very IHtle money and wishes to engage in mixed farming cannot do bettor than to buy some of this land in the celebnitecl Missouri valley. The speculator who wants to make quick returns on a small investment will find this a most profitable investment. In order to hold the land you will have to pay 10 per cent, down and balance at 6 per cent, yearly payments. There is not a. piece of land today on the market which will pay better returns on a, small Investment than these lands and there is no place where the actual settler with small means can nmkn a butter home than on these Missouri valley lands.

Sutt's Sure . Remedy for Hog Cholera. READ THIS TESTIMONIAL. Algona, Iowa, Aug. 35, 1809.—To whom it may concern: My hogs were sick; I had lost four, and had others that were very sick, that 1 had no faith in saving, as the trouble seemed to be spreading quite fast. In fact T had no faith in hog cholera medicine, having tried several kinds without success. -I consented to have Sutt's Hog Cholera Preventive tried on my hogs, and with his medicine, by following his directions, I cured all of the sick hogs but one, which was nearly dead when we began using. I cheerfully recommend Sntt's Hog Cholera Preventive to hog raisers, and feel as sured it will fully fill the claims made for it. (Signed) D. KIOE. Manufactured and guaranteed by ALGONA, IOWA.
