A, Smith went into Chicago last Thursday night to buy a few Roy Wilkes colts for handling the coming winter for the track next season, The Algona folks who attended the Whittemore speech of State Auditor McCarthy speak of it in ter^a of very high praise, quite in contrast with the comments of the Whittemore Champion. Our people rated the speech as a tery effective one and a vote-maker for republicanism.

He has at present about thirty full-blood Poland Chinas, many of which are registered, and all of which are elligible to registry. He expresses the opinion that theHiog cholera so prevalent, or whatever the disease may be, is due to bad water and poor care. His own well is 200 feet deep, and he has had no trouble because no sufrace water. N. Y.

There is an occasional renewal of the agitation for electric lights but no tangible result is so far in sight.

The trial of- Dr. F. J. Felliig, of Whittemore, on the charge of procuring a miscarriage, was held Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of last week, before Justice Phil. Dorweiler, and resulted in a decision discharging .him from custody. The criminal act was alleged to have been committed July 8, about midnight, and the miscarriage alleged to have resulted from the dose followed at 4 o'clock the next afternoon. Mrs. Randall and her mother, Mrs. Chaa. K. Nellis, testified for the prosecution, and Dr. Felling in his 9wn defense took the stand and contradicted everything material that they said. This was all the direct evidence introduced, but there were, a number of witnesses brought in by the state to impeach Dr. Felling's moral character and bis reputation for veracity, and about an equal array testified for the. defense to show tbat both were first "class. There was practically no material fact that was asserted by one side that was not flatly denied by the other. The case was fought ..with' vigor and persistency for three days, at the end of which time Justice Dorweiler discharged the defendant for want of evidenced The prosecution Was conducted by County Attorney J.C. Uay- mondi^ while S. S. Sessions, of Algona, and Mr. McEnroe, of Whitternore, der fended. 7 The trial elicited cpusider- able local interest. It is given out that the matter will be brought Before the grapd jury. ._ Mrs. RandalJ, "who claims to nave Deen the victim, is only about nineteen years of age., , x DID THE HANDSOME THING?. Emmetsburg Democrat: The members of cqmpanyAK report having -had a regular.,1894 time at: Algona. They werp royally Created. Everything was free and they had no bills r to pay, and they are still ;* talking about Algona's .hospitality.; generosity and— we will not mention the rest.. They did not win any prizes but they made a good showing and their efforts, were accorded marked attention. Hurley, Vaughn and Armstrong made good records. We did not learn how many points Saunders made. Emmetsburg Reporter: j Tbe members of company K who were at Algona last week, are loud in their praise of the Algona boys. Everything was free and each member of Co. F vied with,tbe other in making the boys feel at home,'- The Algona people in gen- .eral are noted fpr their hospitality, and £he boys w.ere only keeping up the reputation of the city, If you want to be used in 'a 'royal manner just go to Al> gona, ' - , Fort Dodge Messenger: Captain C, ,W, 'King , and Dan Campbell have returned ftpm attending the rifle sbopt at Algona, There were six cpmpanie,s of the Jt'N, G. represented apd<a friendly contest resulted, The boys were! entertained royally by the AJgPna 'company. . - , . ot .the company in Chicago, the a88,embje 'guy r^eyijtbie le pf We3t ~ Beod Journal; 'Our 'sister , Algona, has always beena'yeyy l and temperate tQYro. especially temperate, bqt they put tjp wore "Wge " siness 1 pyer there tban any W»i» BPrtb^nterri ,Iow^.

The invariable coin* mfent upon the speech was that it was ttife strongest that Mr. Dolliver has ever given us. It was in every respect a freat speech, and its treatment of tli & pension and money questions was especially forcible. Dr. L. A. Sheets piesided. In introducing Mr. Dolliver hi paid him a graceful compliment, d pledged him the united and hearty svbport county. of the republicans of the MR. WILCO3C EXPLAINS, We had a call last week from Mr, \\ ilcox, of Des Moines, .the agent of tte Hawkeye Insurance company, w lose action in the settlement of the 0 ito Brittou loss was criticised in our is sue of two weeks ago. Mr, Wilcox convinced the writer that probably oar informant was in error in some of tile details of the transaction, which, ii correctly stated, would have put a n 3W face upon it. The substanc of Mr, 1 r ilcox's statement is that he allowed A .r. Britton to make his own estimate o!the.damages outside of the house and paid him in full all he claimed. 1 js to the house, the entire insurance t as invalidated by the terms of the I riicy, but the company, in spite of t ie fact that they were not liable for a nything, paid him half the loss. Mr, Britton was satisfied with the adjustment and the only thing he. is,sorry about now is that he did not go to dome home agent, whom he knew and Whom he could trust to put the insurance on such property as ought to be Covered. Of course he erred, also, in putting an incumbrance upon bis farm without notifying the company. Mr. Wilcox appears to be a square man, and we are not surprised that sp many expressed the belief all the. time that when the full facts were knpwri it wpuld be found that there bad been a fair adjustment of the loss. He has promised a statement of the case which we will be pleased to give soon when it comes to hand. It will serve to impress all parties, carrying insurance with the necessity of paying attention to the terms of their policies. :, EIGHT MILE. i I.jnean^there is eight mile of warp in a blanket I have for sale, and that is why it wears longer than any other blanket on the market,.
