WAS a Man' of Powerful fcttitd—Bad Whiskey and Consequent insanity Laid Him Low. Dr. Felling of Wbittemore, the biggest and most powerful man in the county, was taken to the asylum Monday by Sheriff Cbristensen, Henry Thompson going along to assist. He had been sick for two weeks and was almost helpless. . Before that time he had been drinking heayliy, his dally ration being a quart of brandy. Besides being off In his head the doctor's heart was so seriously affected that Dr. Morse thought he might not live to reach independence. The doctor's mania seemed to be that he had a roll of money and that someone was trying to get It. He did dot mention his many creditors, but it was doubtless some of them he had In mind. Dr. Morse's fears proved well grounded, for when nearing Ctilnmr the doctor suddenly collapsed and was dead. He sank gradually after leaving Algona and his death was painless. His remains were brought at once back to Wbittemore on the morning train yesterday. The doctor was once tried in court in Algonn for an alleged abortion. He was not convicted. He was a nian of good ability and pleasing address, but, even now that he is dead nothing can be said commendatory "f his character.

Ledyard Leader: Miss Edith Bowyer of Algona was in Ledyard Tuesday arranging for a class in music. Miss Bowyer is a fine musician, and Ledyard's young people will be very fortunate to secure such able instruction as she can give. The Whittemore Jarley wax works show was a success. The Champion says: Edith Bowyer played some of The- unfold aad hitherto tti»t»*p6et*d possibilities of the street cat fender as a collector of things various washlteted at by an occurrence on Washington street th* other day, whereby the gentle gripman camt out considerably ahead of the game, reports a Chicago paper. A market wagon laden to the guards with sides of beef and hamaand barrels of tenderloin and other thing* edible, and efery way pleasant to look upon even in their raw and unwashed condition was occupying the track in front of a Madison street cable train. The gripman sounded the gong lustily and the driver of the meat wagon attempted 10 pull out of the track to make way. But the grip was too close for comfort and it grazed the wagon, jarring the load and spilling hall a dozen hams on the ground. The driver pulled up his horse hastily when he had cleared the track and jumped off to gather the precious produce from the street, but two of the hmns fell within the tracks and were promptly scooped up by the fender. Tbe gripman threw his weight on the lever nnd the train shot along toward the west with the hams reposing safely on the steel carrier, probably to enrich the lurder of the gripman. Now, if some one would drop an occasional overcoat or a barrel of flour now and then in front of a cable car the life of the gripman would be one long, purple holiday. SUICIDE OF A ROGUE CAMEL. faille;.;- to Kill a Cruel Master, the VI dona Meant Takes Ita Own Life. A valuable camel working in an oil mill in Africa, was beaten by its driver. Soeinjj that the camel had treasured up the injury and was only waiting a favorable chance for revenge, the driver kept a strict watch upon the animal. Time passed away; the camel, knowing that it was watched, was quietand obedient, and the driver began to think that the beating was forgotten, when one night after several months had gone by, the man was sleeping on a raised platform in the mill, whilst, as is customary, the camel was stabled in a corner, says an exchange. Happening to awake, the driver saw by the bright moonlight that, when all was quiet, the . animal looked caU' tiously around, rose softly, and, steal' ing toward a spot'where a bundle o: clothes and a burnous, thrown carelessly on the ground, resembled a sleeping ifigure, cast itself with violence upon them, rolling with all its weight, and tearing them viciously with its teeth. Satisfied that its revenge was complete, the camel was returning to its corner when the driver sat up and spoke. At the sound of hia voice, and realizing the mistake it had made, the animal was so mortified at the failure and discovery of its scheme that it dashed its head against the wall and died.on the spot.

The Bancroft Register says Supervi* sor Pendleton should hold his seat: " He intends going to the coast some time next month to visit and look over the country with a possible view to locating, but his family remain here and he will be back for all but the April meeting, until election when the voters could settle tbe matter of a successor. In the interest of the party harmony in the north end and for the peace of mind of those in the west row of offices in tbe court house Mr. Pendleton should hold his seat. The Wesley News says of our Algona boys in the restaurant: Both Messrs. Taylor and McCall hail from Algona are fine appearing fellows and very pleasant to meet. Mr. Taylor Is also connected with the Hudson restaurant and bakery at Algona and has had an extensive experience at the business. L. D. McCall has clerked for the Hudson Grocery company five years but during tbe past few weeks was on the road for tbe Algona wholesale house. He will be permanent manager of the business here. Ike Sweigard, who lacked two votes of being elected treasurer in Hancock, lacks 122 now that the contest is over. Ballots were thrown out by wholesale, sometimes as hiffh as 25 percent, being defective. In Crystal township Reed lost 25, Sweigard 16; Avery township, Reed 14, Sweigard 47; Boone township, Reed 20; Sweigard 19. Thedefects were found mainly in the township ticket. In writing that in very many voters managed to ruin their whole ballot. No one can tell how our Kossuth vote will be affected, but it is likely that many ballots will go out.
