He spent last winter in California, but of course without getting any permanent benefit. The waning of his physical powers was apparent to all. He kept steadily at work, however, and,worked without intermission to the sad end, giving the closest attention to the de- tsils of his milling business. John J. Wilson was born in Onon- dago county, N. Y., in 1828, and so was 67 years old. He went to Wai- worth county, Wisconsin, in 1843, where he was a farmer at first, but latterly a grain buyer. He came to Algona in 1870. He has been in the lumber, grain and milling business ever since. He was a very active and capable business man.

Wesley Reporter: One evening last week a young man of not prepossessing appearance wandered up into our sanctum shivering with cold, owing to the thinness of his Wearing apparel. He had just counted the ties from Algona, was tired and hungry, and without a cent to pay for pupper or bed. The bloated face and blear eyes re* vealed the fact that the young man must have had a great time sowing the wild oats that produced such a crop. His education was good, but in his start in life he got on the wrong road, with wrong associates, and the result has'been a wrecked life. But underneath the grim and dirt the poor fellow had a heart that could be touched bvakind word. He didn't ask for alms but work, and after a good supper he took hold with a will, and by the way he set type-for he is a printer, a poor "tramp printer,"—he showed himself a very efficient workmen, capable of making good wages but for one thing—a fondness for that which intoxicates. wait till tile last moment and expect ydtlf order to be sefct out by return ex- Dress. .Everyone will be t ushed and they may })& out of just what you want, If you have any special designs you want made up, qt any fancy engraving, see to it at once.

An Immense Audience Greets the Fam ous Young Tragedian at the Call v Last Night. Probably the finest audience that ever assembled in Call's Opera House was that of last night. It very handsomely represented three or four coun ties of .northwest iowa.;, The au'difence itself was a tribute to the rising genius of Walker' Whiteside, such as any man might take as a flattering unction to his soul. On the other hand it is fitting to say that the enterprise of the Algona' Opera House company was never so honored as when Whiteside appeared under their auspices in the great tragedy of Hamlet. The company came out ahead in the matter of expenses, the receipts more than meeting the extraordinary outlay. It "was the greatest dramatic event Algona has seen. ' Ontario.
