Mill had made a hasty departure from Swea City last night without hat, coat orshoes and came by the nearest and most direct route to Bancroft, arriving at about 2 o'clock this, Tuesday, morning. It seems that Geo. Hill and E, M. Ryan wore sitting in the Anderson Bros, hotel when a mob variously estimated from 75 to 200 men, surrounded the hotel and one of them came in and said that Ryan and Hill were wanted. Ilill pushed through the crowd and ran towards Bancroft, about 50 men pursuing him. When he got a little ways he took off his coat, vest and shoes to insure speedier locomotion. The crowd pursued him nearly a mile and concluded that he was too fleet of foot, but some of them wanted to pursue him with horses but afterwards changed their mind, Ryan remained behind and began reasoning with the crowds as best he could for a time, but the crowd had several new men in it who did not like Ryan for several reasons, among them being the supposed incendiary burning of the drug store recently. However tho crowd contented themselves by slightly bruising Ryan and let him go. It appears that Hill has boon having trouble with some of the boys up there and recently had a fight with aeueral of them and Hill came out first and thia angered the boys and coupled with tho above reason was tho cause of the riot. Mr, Ryan arrived in Bancroft about 10 o'clock this morning and was able to be about, but Mr. Hill, is lying in bed at F. J. Byrne's, who kindly took him in and gave him shelter. Mr. Hill's feet are pretty badly cut up and blistered by his nocturnal travel. We offer no palliation of the wrong doing, if any, of Ryan or Hill, but claim and maintain that if they had done wrong the proper way to punish them was to go to the common law and.not to mob law in an enlightened community like Kossuth county. 1« Kov.

It has been promptly quarantined, to the discomfiture of the dwellers in the house, but wo must remember that what inconveniences the few, will probably benefit tho many.

BANOBOFT, Nov. 6.—About thirty G. A. R. friends and their wivos gathered at D. R. Crowoll's a week ago last night to give a farewell party for Mr. and Mrs. Purdy, who started for California last Wednesday. The evening was spent in telling war stories and singing war songs, and the old soldiers sang the choruses with a vim that reminded them of their younger days. Light refreshments were served and a royal good time was had all around. The party presented Mr, Purdy with a beautiful silver smoker's .set, and Mrs. Purdy received a beautiful watch case. Thus,'they left Bancroft with the kindliest , for the friends left behind and the friends of Mr. and Mrs. Purdy al hope they will have a pleasant journey, and that Mr. Purdy may keep on getting in better health.

That sounds hopefess enough, but theJS Ua charity organisation at Hobart TOWIL Tasmania, and the chances are that if a ffiaa of Jon* poe'B status should go to Tasmania Hobarfc Town, as the capital and largest city, Would be his abiding place. Were John there, the local society Would doubtless find him and report tbi discovery to the New York society. ThettOO the report would reach Liverpool, and JUT John's inquiring friends wero really ant- lotu for his presence and he were wllline to return home the Liverpool sooiefef Would see him safely through the remaiA- der of his Journey round tho world. The Charity Organization society may never have pursued John Doe into Australia, but it could do-it If it would, tar it 10 in friendly relations with like sooie- ttcM all over tho civilized world. It has such relations with more than 100 societies to the United States and Canada and with many otbew in the British isles, Prance, Germany, Holland, Italy, Swlt- J ei $"$' ( ? u48 k» Austria-Hungary, Greece, Turkey, Norway and Sweden, Egypt, India and Australia. There are more than 100 •uoh societies la the British isles alone. There are more than a dozen in France and mure than n score in Russia, and there U scarcely an Important European capital without one. It is the business of these societies to attend to their own looal charities and to make for kindred societies at 'home and abroad whatever investigation is naked. Vagrant John Doe may •eenia hopelessly Indistinguishable drop In the ocean of humanity, but the chances are that he is bettor known * the oharlto organization societies of half a dozemeap* itals than many a more^famous man. So It happuns that John, thoughtlessly pur- Ming his lifelong vocation of idler and beggar, can be tupped on the shoulder when wanted, oven though ho takes tip wiugft of the morning and dwells in the uttermost parts of thw earth. The Charity Oganiztvtion society of this city usually hus on hand some cases sent .to it for inquiry from aboard. Most of these oases come from Greafc Britain, though many como from Gomnnny and Holland, and they have boon rocoivpd from nearly every civilized country of the globe. When suoli on Inquiry comes, it is usually accompanied by n hopeful clow, and as t&e society has an acquaintance with nearly, all the professional boggnrs and with ma others of fhe unfortunate 1 and criminal time is lost iu Seeking tlie subject of ir qulry where ho. was last heard from.' The society makes,"no, attempt to look ou* for others than those of the classes with which it usually' has dealings, though it does not hesitate to do a good turn for any inquirer. Ib is not long since one of its agents looked up a man whom a'fond wife in Great Britain was ready to mourn as one dead. The missing husband was- found snugly'lodged with'a-new wife,-but the society prevailed upon him to send aid to spouse No. 1. It frequently happens that the tale of>a. professional beggar or of some other unfortunate brought to the attention of the sooipty seems to bo worth investigation. If the story has an end in an American or European city tho society eti once sends out a letter of Inquiry to the- kindred society in such city, and tho talo is sabjeoted to a pitiless sifting. The result frequently is to convict tho vagrant of untruth. But it sbmethnes happens that friends or relatives abroad are ready to receive him back. In that case the society cares for him until such tune as word comes to send him home. Then an agent .of the society goes* with him to the ship that is to carry htm over, provjdes'him, with a ticket and stays by him until the ship is ready to sail, ' Spine steamships further the charity by carrying' pvw t a few s'tbprago passengers free, Others sneoioVreduotions, If a vagrant returning home is ablebodied, passage is p'btajned for' Mm pn a/cattle shijjrh^d.'he works, his way over, In this way tfe ftujrtnffss <?f sending;, home these lielpjess creatures ,is cheaply''managed,, TJje 'soojety undertook orioe for the goea of ty»e United States to seiid'hojne a,re sick person, bis, w|fe,apd Ave, children.'' a' German towtt 1GQ 1 wiles inland, m \7iwle journey was arranged' at ?68 ., entire family,- bwt the father,-who .. bee'n^«' guide to the' 'HQjy Land,, fell *^ w-ith, A wealthy poquaiptpce when 8| hours • 'o| t)»p Toypgf'F^s o»6ijB"bf & ship's/ busjnesg &U B, £, SAYEB^, D, Y, ^,,., Ka»»»i««^ F, L, SLAGiE, CLAS Harness aail Imm Goods, IOWA, , MRS, F, E, ED&Y, WMEJBI,
