About the sinoke phenomenon the Des Moines Register says; Mr. Mosa Bosa, of Montezuma, asks for the cause of so much smoke in the air. The Register has seen it accounted for in but one way, smoke of the northern forest fires. It seems like a fairy story, but we must remember that $35,000,000 worth of green trees were burned in that district and that produced great volumes of smoke, The fire districts have been almost as black as night. On Lake Michigan the smoke has been so dense as to endanger shipping, Jt has been rolling down on lowftfrom the nortU for ft whole week. It now shows signs of thinning, ftnd In a few nipre days wo may be entirely rid of It.

Sheriff Satnson and Deputy Sheriff Brunson c&me to Ledyard Sunday fore* nooUj unexpectedly, and arrested fouf of our boys, two of whom, as stated in last Week's RtSPUfittOAlt, fought a battle north of tdwn the Sunday previous, and the other two of whom we are told, had a fight planned Sunday, which had to be post« pynedat last. The boys Were taken to Algona in the afternoon, Last week while Wm. Leslie was pressing hay the press suddenly caught fire and the flames spread so rapidly that tho boys had all they could do to get away themselves and save their teams. No cause is known how it started, unless from a hot box, although it had been oiled five minutes prior. It is a big loss to Leslie, as his press burned up entirely and about 250 tons of hay belonging to some of the neighbors. The fire will undoubtedly burn till snow files, as it pot into a big slough of about 20 acres and has already burned holes about seven feet deep. E. V. Swotting of Algona, and M. A. Call and J.G.. Call, both of Sioux City, were up this week hunting, and were well rewarded, as they had a whole bag of game. Last Monday night a team was taken out of a barn in town, but the horses must have been either too slow or too speedy, as the thieves left them hitched to a fence post about one milo from town where they were found next morning. Horses at present are almost too cheap to steal. Mr. and Mrs. Long, of Pomeroy, were visiting A. E. Graves and wife last week. Somebody must have wanted to make* a "raise" as they last Wednesday nightwont into the old hotel and relieved some of the boys who were sleeping there of a watch and chain, overcoat, suit of clothes, flO in money and a few more things. There has been lots of that done lately and it ought to be stopped. The lumber office of C. Hill & Co. was broken into last Thursday night and the safe opened but the burglars secured nothing as there -was no money left there.. : Wm. Foot while burning a straw. stack last week got badly burned about the head as the wind suddenly changed and h,is clothes caught fire., .

From the Newsi Miss Viola Mann passed through LuVerne Friday evening on her way to Washington* D, d., where she will visit her brother, Horace, a few weeks.

If the person who sent Kossuth county's crop report to the State Register, (in whidk he says that the north half of the county has a full average crop of hay but the south part has only a haff crop) will come down wo will convince him that ho "lied like a thief." Wo good a' crop of hay in the south part as there Is In the state of Iowa. ; Last Thursday evening When the members of the League entered the church, they found the birthday box broken open and the missionary money "gone to parts unknown." One penny was found on the floor—left for t, good (?) purpose, perhaps.
