Holloway is having a new front put in the old State Bank building, which is to bo occupied as a millinery store. A. Sundstrom took a bicycle trip to Armstrong last Monday. The photograph car is with us. The Armstrong Journal thinks that Samuel Mayne could be easily defeated for representative by some prominentdem- ocrat. We would rather trust the judgment of the most astute politicians in this county when they say that Mr. Mayne will have the largest majority any candidate ever received in Kossuth county. You are a little too far from the scene of battle, Mr. Journal, and you do not always wear the right brand of spectacles either. Prof. Barslou's candidacy for superin^ tendent seems to grow apace and it looks now as though he would receive the noul* ination on the first ballot. Hurrah for Frank.

Gibson has been afflicted with boils during the past week in so severe a manner as to bo confined to the house most of the time. A birthday party was given at Hans Sorrenson's, six miles southeast of town last Saturday evening in remembrance of the 16th birthday of Miss Amelia Sorrensen. A good time is reported. A. J. .Borryman's store is now headquarters for the 'phono business. By going there you can talk with almost anyone iji any town in Kossuth county and the charges are reasonable.

The case came up for trial Thursday of last week but the prosecuting witnesses failed to Appear, and instead of. dismissing the case as the law provides, .it was continued to Monday of this week.; At the trial one swore that ho saw Mr., Simpson pick up the pocket book in the: restaurant and another testified he found it, later, in the manger where Simpson's horses fed. On the other hand the accused swore that the marshal who arrested him had tried to blackmail him by advising him to "settle." Mr. Simpson's Word is Worth the oaths of a thousand blue sky and blackmail sharks, and as such men as A. D. Clarke, J< B, Carf, J. D. Fuller and others testified to the unquestionable char* a'ctef and reputation of the accused, he was discharged. It is impossible to prove the motive of the accusers, but a reputa- ble.Algona citizen stated after the trial that the'affair had, to him» all the ear marks of a contemptible attempt* mail, and all who are acquainted with D.

Fairman, first butter maker, to S55 a month and hired Will Freeman as second man. The Emmetsburg Reporter gets. to. the front with the first big crop yarn. It says that last spring Tom Hand, of Great Oak, sowed about six sacks of-barley. on about eight acres of ground, and Tuesday he threshed it out and had from it, machine measure, 508 bushels. Those who saw the barley growing pronounced it tho finest that they ever saw, but they were not expecting quite so large a yield. The .Reporter wishes the Kossuth county fellows to note that Palo Alto can groduco grain as well as wolves.

Ordway feels 'bout as young as ho used to be, if we may judge from the events of Wednesday evening. One of his hired men is the owner of an untamed western bicycle, a regular Oregon machine, and Gal led it out after supper to ride it or be rode. He mounted with the grace of an experienced rider and matters started well. Soon troubles arose as to direction. The machine wanted to go in one direction and Cal wanted to go in another, and that was just what they did, Tho rider made a graceful fall and was soorj after the cvlttor again, Round No, 2 was a victory for the machine, so was round No, 3, but on the 4th trial Cal set spurs to }t and staid with it clear to the center of a neighbor's garden ftt the foot of the bill. In jumping a cow path the seat gave way but the rider hung to the mane in spite of the bucking of the machine and Js gojng to fight it out on this line If it takes all summer. Little Girls Caught on a Bridge at Livef» mote by a Train.—One is Beheaded. Livei'morc Gazette: Last Tuesday a- bout4:30 p. m., No. 5 north-bound freight on the Minneapolis, with Milner engineer and Hinton conductor pulled out from the depot. As they reached the bridge over tho DCS Moines they saw three girls on the track at tho further end. It Is a common sight so they said to see children playing there, and the engine was quite near before it was evident that tho girls could not reach the end of the bridge or were too scared to seek safety on either side. The engineer reversed his engine with a suddenness that lifted every man from his seat. Edna Maliu, 7 years of age, threw herself outside the rail, and when the train was about half by, fell off tho edge down about 17 feet, and rolled down the bank about ten further. Alice Mai In, 8 years and Q months of age, just cleared the bridge and foil, the 'engine picking her up and carrying her some distance further, and as she rolled from the cow-catcher her head went under the wheel and her headless body was thrown to one side. The third girl, Ethel Gregg, 13 years old, kept a safe distance and was by the side of Edna, down the bank, before the trainmen reached them. Edna was picked up unconsious, but not seriously hurt. The remains of Alice were also taken on the train, which ran back to town and a doctor called. The doctor happened to be tho girls' father. This was not known till ho reached tho train, when he was told that the girl who was hurt, was his. He made a hurried examination, found her unhurt, and with a horrible suspicion as to whom the other might be, tore tho wrapping from the remains. The effect upon him .was such as to make by-standers turn a- slde'that they might not witness his grief. Th'd train was held till evening, Coroner 'Kinney of Humboldt was summoned, and an inqUest was held, the verdict being in accord with the above facts and the rail- road'employes being exhonorated of any negligence on their part. The funeral was set for Wednesday at the house at.10 a. m:, Rev. Waite officiating. The town is a-uuit in doing all possible on this sad occasion to relievo and assistthe parents. •We give the above facts very briefly, as we print a day earlier this week, before the funeral. Products oi'IoAva Prairies. Beacon: The people who heard It, continue to talk of the Dolliver lecture. It is exceedingly gratifying to tho Beacon to see this product of the Iowa prairies regarded as the superior of the best talent from the east and south. BURNED TO DEATH. Carl Swenson, of Estherville, killed and MafiglCd 'by 1 the Cars at West fiend. the West Bend Journal of the 18th says: Last Sunday morning at 4:20 a. to. while the creamery to work E~d. Knapp found the body of a man lyihg on the railroad track at the west end of the depot platform. , The body was hprribjy mutilated, the head and trunk beihg^about 25 feet from the legs and hips. He notified Marshall Seaver and he with Dr. Bachmah and T. W; Emery gathered up the remains on a grain door and carried them into the depot. Coroner Henry was telegraphed of the find. He wired Justice of the Peace S. la. Seaver to ho!,d. an inquest, 13. Wi Ba&hmah, B. F. Mcfrarland and J. B. Martin were summoned as jurors, and through letters found on the body he was identified as Carl'Sweuson, of Estherville.. He came from'tlie south about 3:30p. m. Friday, and Was seen around town that afternoon by several people. He inquired of Agent Gruyer about the time train No. 07 would pass through, and was at the depot after tho passenger had gone south at 9:40 in the evening. No. 07 passed north about one o'clock in tho morning and did not stop here. From the position in which the remains were found it is supposed he tried tD board that .train but missed his footing, and fell undo; 1 the wheels. The hips and lower limbs lay outside the east rail of the main line, tho head, and trunk about 25 feet south, the left hand on the west sideof the track and his hat fifty or sixty feet north of the lower limbs. .Only twenty cents in money was found on the body and every indication would show that he was trying to beat his way on the train and lost his life thereby. The south bound stock train must have passed over the body after he was killed and rolled it to tho position in which it was found. New Woman Rides Straddle. Beacon: Four ladles arrayed in bloomers blue came into town on horseback yesterday riding men's saddles in the uripoet- ic musculine fashion. Our villagers see a good deal of life as the procession moves along, but this little incident attracted a good deal of attention. A Beacon staff meeting was held at 3 this morning to consider the matter, but the discussion is withheld for prudential reasons. Men who've tried to root for business, Without'an ad. to aid;.
