How He Made a Diamond Suatche Disgorge—Miscellaneous Semi- local News Notes. An interesting story is told on Judge Lot Thomas by the Washington cor respondent of the Sioux City Journal Representative Lot Thomas of Storm Lake was initiated into his congress ional career today with a unique experience. In the great jam attending the opening of congress, while making his way through the east corridor ol the capitol, he felt some one jostle up against him. Looking down at his immaculate shirt bosom be noticed the absence of a valuable diamond stud. At the same time he observed a man rapidly passing from his side and elbowing his way through the crowd. Mr. Thomas gave pursuit. The stranger passed into the restaurant floor below and was going rapidly along the main corridor towards the doors which open on the capitol plaza when Mr. Thomas called to him to stop. "I have not time to talk to you," the stranger exclaimed in an impatient tone, waving the member from Storm Lake back while still heading toward the door. Mr. Thomas, however, kept close on his trail. " But I tell you to stop," he exclaimed, 11 1 want to talk to you." "Can't stop now," said the man, and by this time he was close to the door. "If you don't stop," said Mr. Thorn as, "I'll call a policeman." This brought the stranger to a stop right by the door. He fumbled in his Jooket impatiently and held out the Hamond. "Here take it," he said, "and let me go." Mr. Thomas seized lis treasure and ,the next moment the ihief bolted through the door and was out of aight. gressman Dolliver fixed up matters at Algonn, we are not surprised." The clerk hire allowed the Algona postofflce is $32,50 a month, and was fixed while Mr. Starr was postmaster on account of the star routes running from Algona and on account of the business of the two big firms of star route contractors in Algona, all of whose bids and contracts the post- muster must look over and sign. The same clerk hire was received by Mr. Hinchon. It has not been increased in the past ten years, although the business of the office has nearly doubled. The reference to Mr. Dolll- ver is entirely gratuitous. AJjfoiia and Peoria. Estherville Vindicator: A party of Algona business men took a little jaunt over the Iowa Central one day last week from their town to Peoriti, [llinois, the road's eastern terminus. They were shown all the advantages ihat town has to offer as a market of Kossulh county's produce. All accounts given by the press representatives who were with the party make special mention of Peoria's great dis- jillerles, which are said to consume immense quantities of corn, barley and •ye. The possibilities of complications n the relations between a prohibition ,own like Algona and a distillery city ike Peoria renders a discussion of the probable benefits to be derived from his visit of business men a delicate matter and we stand from under. We lelieve there are several men in tetherville who will be pleased to take trip similar to that of the Algona men, when the Iowa Central will have ompleted its line to this city. ever that will raakebutlittledifference as they can get into adjoining counties very nearly as easily as they can get to some of the depots they already have.
