An interesting illustrated article DH "How Men Became Tramps" is contributed by Josiah Flynt. A number of articles appropriate to the centenary of Keats are contributed by various hands. Millicent Shinn has a paper explalnim? how it happens, or appears to, that less than one third of college women marry. Singularly, Miss Sliinn pays little attention to the hypothesis that nobody "axed" them. Prof. Sloane tells of Napoleon in the role of constitutional despot. Several writers contribute papers on the career of E. J. Qlave, the young explorer of Africa wilds whose death occurred some months ago. "Pun on the Stump" is an illustrated article appropriate to the season. In Harper's for October the chapters of Hardy's Hearts Insurgent give another excruciating turn to that very distressing yet readable yarn. "Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc" are continued with unabated interest. "Alone in China" is a good story by Julian Ralph, and "Hin- doo and Moslem" is an illustrated descriptive paper affording instruction and entertainment. "Queen Victoria's Highland Home" will bo read by everybody. "The German Straggle for Liberty" roaches its thirteenth number. It is a valuable historical contribution. Among the solid articles is one by Capt. Mahan, of the U. S. navy, on "The Future in Relation to American Naval Power," which urges the importance of a strong navy for this country, not only with a view to the national defence but for the strengthing of American influence in international settlements in which we should take a hand. George Meredith's story, "The Amazing Marriage," in Scribner.'s, is as amazing as any marriage ever was or will be to most readers, who will seek relief from its dull pages in the numerous readable short stories in the October number,. ..Western people will want to read the well illustrated discriptive paper-on the University of Chicago. The current installment:of Robert Grant's "The Artof Living" treats of the case of women, and "The Last Quarter Century Sketches," by Benjamin Andrews, tell of tbe Chinaman in American politics. There is an article on Hux-. ley by Geo. W. Smalley which has'a timely interest, and there is an article on "The American Poster, Past and Present."- - The Review of Reviews makes itself In- dispensible. Nobody can keep up with the times without it. The October number has, besides the editor's review of the mouth, and the other regular departments,. "Religious Journalism and Journalists," "The Carnegie Libraries," "The Manitoba School Question" and many other valuable articles. There is no other periodical which has such a charm for the youthful reader as St. Nicholas. The October number has the concluding chapter of the "Boy of the First Empire," a sketch of J. G. Brown, the child painter, illustrated from his paintings, "Hero Tales from American History," by Roosevelt, and "Yamjnd," a story from the desert. The October Midland has a very instructive illustrated article on the Associated Press, "Life Among the Alaskans," "Lincoln as a Lawyer," "Editor's Sketch of his Rhiue Journey," and numerous good stories and poems. "The News Gatherer" tolls of Iowa news editors, and their portraits adorn the pages. The installment of "Midland WarSketches" tells of the battle of Allatoona. FROM LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN.

Walker Whiteside in Hamlet, comes November 26, and Miss Ida Van Courtlaud, who is a great favorite among Algona play-goers, will be here some time in January. These three entertainments show the character of the Algona opera house. There are no better companies traveling than these and the disposition of the management to keep up the good reputation acquired by our opera house is to be commended. proposed for the Jon js that of ^ true whose In a late number of the N. Y. Dramatic Mirror we notice a mention of Walker Whiteside, who is to play Hamlet in Algona Nov. 26. He had been playing at Bridgeport, Conn,, and this is what they say; Walker Whiteside made his initial visit to the city, in Hamlet and Bichelieu to audiences that compared his work with that of older tragedians and received by them frequent curtain-calls to be satisfied beyond a doubt. The Cin- cinatti Commercial Gazette has this to say of the eminent tragedian: If be is not the greatest Hamlet our stage has ever known, he certainly is the best Hamlet of this age and generation- Thousands will yet crown him with laurels.

CHATTANOOGA, TENN, October 12, 1895.—The first part of the Iowa editorial excursion ended to-night With the trip to Lookout Mountain. At ? o'clock to-morrow morning we leave for Atlanta* and will reach there at 11. Saturday afternoon and Monday the excursionists will give mainly to the Cotton States Exposition, and on Monday night the return trip will begin. We expect to reach Des Moines on Wednesday at 7 a. m. and Algona on the afternoon of that day. To this point the excursion has been an unqualified success. It has been one of continued enjoyment, and added to the pleasure which passed with the hour and the scene, has been the information acquired and the permanent impressions obtained of {the South passed through and of its people and productions. The visit made to-day to the battle grounds of Chickamauga, Missionary Eidge and Lookout Mountain has given to every member of the party a new and abiding interest in the great events there enacted thirty- five years ago. It has been the greatest day yet of a trip, every-day of which has been most profitably spent. The ride to Des Moines on Monday afternoon, October 7, was without notable incident, aside from Bro. Warren's capture of the first souvenir, a description of which he will give to his Algona friends at the first opportunity. .Possibly he (may also place it on exhibition, if it survives the trip, which evidently the contributor would be much surprised to learn. Several of the party enjoyed the hospitality of Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Wheeler at their beautiful place on West Ninth Street. The editorial party left Des Moines for St. Louis at 8:45 Tuesday evening, with upwards of 150 on board, of which Algoua contributed eight—Mr. and Mrs. 11. B. Warren, Mrs. I. M. Finnell, and Miss Nannie Fraser, Mrs. Jas. Taylor,-Mrs, J. W. Tennant, and Mr. and Mrs. M. Starr. St. Louis was reached . on Wednesday morning be : tweeu 8 and 9, and the day was spent visiting the St. Louis Fair, the Exposition, Tower Hill Park and Shaw's Gardens. The fair was a success as an agricultural exhibition, there being a splendid showing of Missouri farm products, and its Midway presented a bewildering array of attractions: Shaw's Gardens are reached by street cars which pass through a fine residence district and are a delight to lovers of the beautiful. The tomb and recumbent statue of Henry Shaw, the donor of the grounds, are features of interest, and several fine pieces of statuary add their attraction to the scene, which is visited daily by great crowds. The Exposition is on a splendid scale and is a striking evidence of the enterprise of the great city. The party attended the Exposition as the guests of the management and in the evening they accepted the invitation to attend the grand concert of Sousa's band of fifty pieces, one of the most famous in the country. Thursday was spent at Nashville and that city extended its hospitalities on a grand scale. Every attention within the power of her people to pay was lavished upon the excursionists, despite the fact that the city election was progressing during the entire time of our visit, a ad a spirited though orderly contest going on between the democrats and the A. P. A., the latter winning the day by a decided majority on mayor and councilinen. Nashville is a city of 110,000 people and a handsome b«at of all. A acedia! took us out td the Belle Meade fatm', which eompflg- es about 6,000 acteSj and witfaont the stock on it, 5s a million dollar property. The proprietor is a ferothet of the late judge Jackson of the United States supreme court. He welcomed the party in a cordial and patriotic speech, to which President Ifoufig fittingly responded, and then a walk was taken to an elevated point Where a large number of fine horses and a great drove of deer passed in review, the latter in the distance. One of the horses seen was troquois, a beautiful animal said to be worth a $150,000 in spite of the depressed condition of the horse market, and a former winner of the American Derby. There are 35 miles of stone fence on this farm^ the cost of which was one dollar per yard. The residence is a typical southern man i sion, of the colonial style. The place has feeen in possession of the family for a century. Up to this point we have experienced northern weathei-j the temperature here and at all points on the line hav* ing been about What we left at Algona.

Wiltse Convicted of Adultry with Mrs. Rose Shadle.—Other Court News. The Wiltse adultry case has been the prominent feature of the District Court during the week. It occupied four days of the court's time, the case commencing last Wednesday and the jury returning their verdict Sunday morning, after a night's deliberation. The verdict was guilty as charged in the indictment. The events which lead up to this denoument have been recently aired and need no repetition here. While the evidence was circumstantial, it is said to have been conclusive and left no doubt in the minds of the jury. The main evidence was in regard to happenings in the Algona cemetery this spring. Col. Sessions assisted .County Attorney Raymond in the prosecution,-and Wiltse was ably defended by Sullivan & McMahon and D. C. Chase, of Webster City. A motion was made for a new trial, which was overruled and he was sentenced this morning to, one year in the penitentiary. Fred Heath, who was indicted by the grand jury for adultry with Mrs. Stelzer, has secured a continuance until next term. The case against Mr. Stelzer for the shooting of Heath was dismissed. The case of John Paul Lum- bev Company vs. Geo. W. Skinner and his wife, Lucy Skinner, was decided in favor of the company on a motion before the Judge. The jury was dismis.'3- ed Saturday night, with the exception of those on the Wiltse case, who were sent home Sunday. This week has been spent in arguing motions before the Judge and it is thought that the court will be adjourned to-morrow or Friday. Opera House Grocery.

The day prior to our visit the celebration of the centennial anniversary of the admission of Tennessee into the Union was inaugurated by the dedication of an industrial exposition which will be the great event of next year in this region. The Indiana editors had visited the city on their way to Atlanta a few days prior to our coming, and a colored man told the writer that they visited the Fisk University and the brewery and got no further. The Iowa editors visited the Peabody Normal Institute, the brewery, Fiske University and Gen. Jackson's celebrated Belle Meade stock farm, and finished the tour in time to leave for Knoxvjlle by 3:36 p, rn. The street cars were given up to the use of the excursionists to the extent that they could fill them, and three cars were chartered and well fijlecj. With each car went a gentleman who dispensed information with and without the asking. At the Peabody Institute speeches were made by the Chancellor and by President L,afe Young, of the Iowa Editorial Association, and both speeches were good opes and received hearty applause, The visit to Fiske University wp one loug to be remembered. The speeches good but the sight of the students even more inspiring, and the mm? rendered by a quintette of genuine, il not original, Jubilee singer, was , • ,' ^-\ • •',i*' J, ±,, .,r.JMl9A,L THE JAIL TAX. The jail question comes up again at the election Nov. 5, and it is very probable that it will carry this time. The people of the county have come to know that it is an absolute necessity. We herewith reproduce the finding of the grand jury, composed of some of the county's best men from different localities: We, the undersigned, members of the Grand Jury, desire to submit to the Honorable Court the following report of the condition of the Eossuth County jail in the basement of the Court House: First—We find the room in which the cave in located to be damp, illy ventilated, without sewerage, and the alp reeking with stench and in such a condition as to imperil the nealtn of its inmates and the officers whose duty it is to care for them, and also those in the Recorder's office who are in the room immediately above them. Second—We find it an absolute necessity to let the prisoners out of the cage into the corridor a part of the time, and the officer in care of them has to be among them in the corridor, while performing his duties, thereby exposing himself to great risk from personal violence from vicious and refactory inmates of the jail. Third—We find futher, that the jail in its present condition is insecure, and that it is only by the constant watchfulness and care of the officers in charge, that prisoners of a vicious and hardened character and skilled in the art of burglary are prevented from making their escape. Fourth—In conclusion wo desire to say that upon a thorough, investigation given the subject, we feel compelled to state to the court that we consider the present arrangement for the care and custody of the prisoners entirely inadequate, and that common prudence and humanity and a decent regard for the reputation of our coun* ty require and urgently demand thait prisoners under, the charge of the county be placed under .better conditions than those which at present surround them, and we respectfully recommend and advise that' the court proceed to condemn tbe present jail as being entirely unfit for the pur* pose for which it is used and to take such other measures as may be necessary for the security and proper ejire of those unfortunate ones whom tne safety 9f tbe public require sbpuld be placed under restraint.
