He went up to a dizzy height in a perfectly still sky, floated gracefully two blocks north and then dropped near J. B. Winkel's residence He was not even shaken up by his con tact with terra lirma, so gentle was it Parachute leaps, however, do not av crago that way.

When Matt Holtzbauer heard of it his heart was grieved and he announced his intention of absenting himself on that day. He will probably spend his Fourth in seclusion rather than witness the desecration of the beautiful green sward. Out of consideration for him it is hoped that those who walk on the grass will tread a softly as practicable. Daniel Bice had a runaway while driving into town Saturday afternoon. There were with him Harrison Warner and his son Forrest, the latter driving. The horses became frightened and ran,,and Warner grasped one of the lines and pulled with such vigor that it broke in two, when he went out on a tangent, lighting on the ground without serious accident. The other line then pulled the horses around in a circle and both Bices were thrown out, without much injury, and the two seated open buggy was piled at the side of the road in a demoralized heap. The horses were caught up town. The exciting episode occurred near the McGetchie residence, on Call street. PERSONAL MENTION. Whittemore Champion: Mrs. H. P.

Dailey and Melzar Haggard drove to Ledyard Saturday night with a search warrant for liquor. They found nothing there but went on over to Germania, where it seems they don't like the idea of going dry, and especially as it was getting near the Fourth, a supply of liquid enthusiasm was to be expected. The sheriff and his men arrived in Germania in the neighborhood of midnight and at the same time a large wagon, leavily loaded with keg and bottled Deer drove up, conmjg from Blue Sarth, Minn. The sneriff informed the driver that he would take charge of the precious load, as no one could be found at the moment to lay claim to ihe stuff. It was brought to Algona and lodged in a safe place until ordered to be spilled by the court. Mr. Samson has made night raids into the northern part of the county before, and 8 certainly doing all he can to keep /hat Germania saloon closed. Kos- sutu county, without doubt, is kept as clear of saloons as any county in the state, and our officers are to be commended, VI ' ' —_______ NEWS OF THE COUNCIL.
