Last week a woman and four children got off the train atEstherville. While they were waiting for a train south the marshal got word from Germania to lold them. Later in the day Joseph rlenz of Germania arrived and claimed hem. The Vindicator relates the in- :ident and says: It seems the affair was the upshot of a 'strained and up- >leasant condition in the Ren/, house- iold, which by the way had been under ganization only about three months. Before three months ago Mr. Renz was a Kossuth county widower with one daughter and Mrs. Renz was a Clay iOunty widow with three children, 3ach had a farm. They became acquainted and decided to unite their "ortunes and families. Events seem to ndicate that the amalgamation was not wholly successful. Mrs. Renz told Marshal Maxwell that her husband was not kind to her. Mr. Renz also told lis story. He said the home relations lad always been pleasant, and that he could explain his wife's sudden departure while he was away to the creamery with milk only by supposing that she :iad become suddenly homesick and made up her mind to go back to her lome in Clay county. The strangest 3iirt of the situation was that Mr. Etenz's daughter had chosen to cast her ot with her stepmother rather than to •emuin under the paternal roof. OONTEAOT HAS BEEN LET. Forty Miles of Iowa Central Extension Beyond Altfoiiu Already Arranged For. The Hampton Chronicle says the contract has already been let for 40 miles of Iowa Central road beyond Algona, to be put in in the spring. It adds: This will give the road 100 miles of track branching from the main line at Hampton, and as this city would be the natural one for a division point, we can undoubtedly get it if our people will jet a hustle on themselves and show by some evidence that they want it and appreciate what the Central has already done for this place. The new line to Algona is a great benefit to Hampton both financially and otherwise, but with a division here and the road extended to the great lakes it would be of great value to the city. FOR the Christmas and New Year Holidays, excursion tickets will be sold by the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul R'y. company, to stations within a distance of 200 miles, at a fare and one-third for the round trip.

T. M. House, who was tried last week at Minneapolis, Revs. Smylie and Day appearing for the prosecution, was reinstated in the ministry on a technicality. Rev. House was located at Ida Grove, and while there got into correspondence with a girl at Ruthven to whom he represented himself as unmarried, etc. He was brought be- ore the Sioux City conference last fall ind was expelled from the ministry >ut not from the church. He appealed and the board of appeals holds that if lis offense was as serious as charged he should have been expelled from the hurch. If it was not considered serous enough by the conference to expel lim from the church, then expulsion "rom the ministry was too severe pun- shment. Rev. House claims that he )egan corresponding with the girl to ceep her from marrying a worthless ellow, and that in order to keep in her confidence he had to deceive her a ittle. The' opinion of his conduct has lot changed any with his ministerial brethern, and his reinstatement will not regain him their confidence. He ias, however, friends in Ida Grove who lave stood by him in the contest. His defense was conducted by Rev. Jesse Cole of Humboldt. CAPES and jackets go at put .prices this week. . G. L. GALBRAITH.

George E, Delavan, fish commission er, has filed bis biennial report with the governor.

Philadelphia gets the coming nation al republican convention, which will he held June 19. Chicago was beaten by one vote. Tiie speaker from Chicago jokingly referred to St. Louis as a Chicago suburb and the St. Louis delegate changed his vote from Chicago to Phil adelphia,. It don't often pay to joke. Editor Roberts pf the Fort t)o4g Messenger, director of the mint at Washington, is placed In a very embarrassing position quite frequently these days by reason of his bearing the same nam? as the polygamous Roberts from Utah. When he is introduced to some of the nabobs at Washington he is frequently greeted with the remark, "Ah, Mr. Hoberts, yes, I have beard." Commission men are losing a great deal of money this winter on apples. It is stated that on South Water street in Chicago alone, the losses amount to a million and a half of dollars. The reasons are that the conditions for keeping apples have been exceptionally bad. The fruit remained on the trees much longer than usual and ripened too much. The apples now decay very i rapidly. OHUEOH SUBSOEIPTIONS AEE GOOD.. f a Man Promises Money to a Clturcli on Sunday It IB a .Legal ' Obligation. .The supreme court Thursday decided n the case of the First Methodist hurch of Fort Madison vs. E. M. Donnell, appellant, that subscriptions to a hurch fund can be collected at law, and that subscriptions for such pur- )oses taken on Sunday are legal. The lefendant made on a certain Sunday at church a subscription to a fund to pay iff the debt of the church, Afterwards ts payment was contested, and the ground, among others, was taken that ubscription having been made on Sunday was not legal. The lower court, however, maintained that a subscription taken for such a cause was legal, fudge Ladd, in an opinion, sustains ,his view, the full court agreeing with lim. He says that the custom of tak- ng contributions for religious and char- table purposes on the first day of the week has existed from time imraeraor- al, and that if it should not be BUS- .ained now every deacon who passes the hat or collection box on Sunday would be committing an illegal act. If t is legal to take up collections for certain purposes on that day it must be egal to take them by , receiving subscriptions of money. Therefore the subscription is held to be legal and col- "eotlble. . , 3, W. HAY POMES NOETH, He Is Located at Dubuque But Likes Alabama. The Iowa Falls Sentinel has an item of interest about a well known Algonian: " J. W. Hay, of Kushla, Ala- jama, has been visiting at his old home n Iowa Falls for a few days. Mrs. BEay and the children, are still in the south but Mr. Hay is at present making lie headquarters at Dubuque, he being In the employ of a well-known fruit commission ' firm in that city. Her Viends will regret to learn that Mrs. Hay's health has not been so good luring the second year of her residence in Alabama as it was the first year, and ,. change of climate will be necessary. [>ur former townsman is very much pleased with his home in the south and says that he will keep his property down there though circumstances compel him to live elsewhere for a time.

THE COUNT BEGINS TODAY The Contest Over the Treasurer's Office Now Going 1 On. Result May Depend Largely Oil How the Work is Taken Up—Much Interest Manifested. The contest over the vote on county treasurer is on this morning. Chairman Smith presides, C. D. Pettlbone acting as judge with htm for L. C. Smith, and S. X. Way of Wesley acting for Mr. Ward, The attorneys and J. W. Sullivan for Smith, and Bonar & Fellows for Ward. The first question that will be raised will be where to begin to count. Mr. Sullivan Insists hat he can begin with, any township ie pleases, but' Mr. Ward's attorneys ivill demand a straight count, taking he townships in the regular order. f the latter plan is adopted the recount will take a long time, for Mr. Smith is •elying on Wesley, Prairie, and River- ale, and they will come last in the ist. If Kossuth has the the same peroent- ige of spoiled Ballots that Hancock did. 10 one can te)'. what the result will bo, >ut the presumption is that both Mr. Smith and Mr. Chrlstensen will be xmten, as they got the scratched bal- ots. L. M. Owen was urged to file notice of contest' but did not do it, and t is now too late. In Hancock county, after the demo- sratlo candidate was over 100 behind, ie quit the contest, with several town- hips uncounted. He lost steadily in he recount, being like Mr. Smith here the beneficiary of scratched ballots. The recount will be very tedious and ill not excite any local Interest. ["here is nothing so wearisome as the technicalities of such a recount. The result alone will be worth watching. A Christmas Prayer. The following lines are written by Rev. W. J. Suokow, one of whose poems THE UPPER DBS MOINES published some weeks ago. They are fine in sentiment and finely worked out: Ye choirs of angels bright, Who on that holy night Did chant so sweetly to the slumbering earth, Return to us again, And wake once more the strain That told the listening ahetoherds of the Christ- child's lowly birth. The sordid cares ot life, ' The din of earthly strife, The clamorous greed of men, do sadly mar The music pure and sweet That once the earth did greet; What comes to us is but a broken echo, faint and far. Touch now j our harps of gold, Sing as ye sang of old, Until the heedless world shall catch again That greeting from the skies- Stray note of Paradise: " To God on high be glory, peace on earth, good will to men."
