Rapid Rise of a Good Rail rot) d Man —Miscellaneous Notes About the Railways. The rumor that new heavy steel rails will be put in on this division of the C. & N. W. seems to be founded on facts. The latest is the following which is taken from the Eagle Grove Times-Gazette: As ' soon as spring opens up in earnest, work will be commenced on the laying of the heavy steel on the north end from Eagle Grove to Burt. The present weight of steel Is not over 60-pound and will not admit of the heavy traffic which the new Sanborn extension will bring this way. The now steel will not be lighter than 72-pound and may be even heavier than that. The new steel will be laid as fast as possible and the line gotten into good working shape for the spring and early summer. R. II. Alshtou's Rapid JUtio. " Dick" Alshton, who two years ago was superintendent of the Eagle Grove division, is now general superintendent of the whole North western system with offices at Chicago. The promotion is phenomenal, but Alshton is the kind of a man that goes up. Mr. Aishton was born at Evanston in 1860, and his entire railroad career has been with the Chicago & Northwestern, whose services he entered as an ax-man with a surveying party in Dakota in 1878. Years ago he was known as "Dick" Aishton, and was a civil engineer. During the sickness of Bridge Superintendent Waldron some tjrae ago Mr. Aishton filled that position. After Mr. Waldron returned Mr. Aishton was sent to Eagle Grove as assistant superintendent to Hughes, and after the death of the latter he became superintendent of the Northern Iowa division. Two years ago he was promoted from the superintendent of the Northern Iowa division with headquarters in Boone. Northwestern Stands Second. The Northwestern company has issued a statement showing 298 miles of road built this year, and a total mileage of 8,278 miles, which makes it second in the United States. The Pennsylvania system has a few more miles of road bed. , A Rpuwdabput Route.

There is something about the connection between the Northwestern and Omaha lines at Elmore that ought to be investigated, if this report is correct. Aluoiia Will be a Center. Bancroft Register: And now comes rail road, rumor No. 98376 and says the Milwaukee will build from Algona north to Sherburne, Minn. If all those railroads branching out from our county seat materialize it will look like the center of a spider web.

Considering that Monday was a cold day the annual tax sale wus a warm affair. A stranger, R. M. Whilwer, said to be from Mason City, appeared on the scene and from the outset put the limit high. He bid on everything that offered and at fractions that would not give, him as much land as would,cover his thumb ;iall. He got townlots in Ledyard at a deoilionth about as much land as a pinhead. The local bidders were not to be left and for a few hours it bothered the mathematicians to tell how to figure. • The climax was reached when the stranger ran out of a name and said he would pay tax for an infinitesimal part, when E. V. Swotting immediately bid at, half of an infinitesimal part. The taxes on several pieces were paid for an infinitesimal fraction. At noon about half the list had been finished when a motion to adjourn the sale was made and Treasurer Smith adjourned it one week. The stranger protested and it seems he is right. The law says the treasurer must continue the sale, until all the pieces are offered and can adjourn the sale after all have been offered', in case some of them have not been bid off. It looks as though Treasurer Smith by adjourning might Involve the whole subsequent sale in a legal tangle, If the adjournment is not legal, tax deeds bought on next Monday's sale will not be worth anything, and all who pay taxes on other men's land will do so with a pretty good prospect of making a donation, When the adjournment occured Whltwer assured the local land men that he would again be present. There is a rumor out that he belongs to a syndicate which has had a man at every sale in the state, to hid in all the delinquent lands. There is big money in it and if such a syndicate has really organized it is a shrjwd move. Many assume that it would be easy to let bidders take a deed to the very small fraction of land they take as security for the taxes they pay on whole pieces. But the costs of court and of a referee to set off the fractions, etc., would amount to more than the original tax, Away Mrs. A. J. Dray ton of Algona attended. Mr. Rowe was 54 years old. He leaves a widow and four children, two sons and two duughtors. The family came to Algona from Dysart and were well and favorably known here where they have a wide circle of friends. Mr. Rowe was an honorable man in business find was esteemed by all who knew him. In their bereavement the family have the sympathy of all.
