The amount was in truth only about $800. Had the woman Stamy, of Cedar Rapids, been aware of the inconsiderable proportions ot Gottlieb's patrimony she might not have yielded to the temptation to commit a crime to secure it. But there is no doubt that is what she has done. She evidently saw the sensational accounts at the time and meditated long she should manage the business. It is, of course, possible that, in the muantiine she may have fallen in with Schuerle. That of course is wholly improbable, as if he had known of the money awaiting his reappearance here ho would have come for it. 1 here can be hardly a doubt that Miss btamy worked the case up with only the start LOCAL MENTIONS. .Sheriff Samson went to Des Moines on official business Monday. Prof. Lilly and family are now located in rooms at the Normal. A girl was born to Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Robinson the first of the week. Geo. C.

The union Thanksgiving services at C. L. Lund sold one hundred and fifty ton of timothy hay which he has in his huge hay barn to II. A. Paine last week. Timothy hay was a poor crop in most of the eastern states this year, and is now worth $14 a ton in Chicago. The total cost of criminal prosecutions for the year in this county as re- poited by Clerk Grose to the secretary of State, was $1,996.40 exclusive of the so busy installing new phones that they have been unable to put their lines in the best shape, and so they ask for lenient judgment and forbearance on the part of their customers. It was inevitable that wires would be crossed, but all will probably be righted this week. In the meantime no charge is made on the city circuit, and none will be until everything is in order.

The eagle was'very handsomely mounted and has been received back, and it is to be seen in Mr. Brownell's window. What will eventually be done with it is not learned, but the suggestion is made that it be given a place in the reading room. That is the proper place. Prof. Webster delivered the third lecture of his historical course on Monday evening, discussing "Jeffersonian Democracy" in a manner to interest all and to stir up some of the democrats to resent the criticism of the putative father of their party. The Proi- essor delivers the fourth and last lecture of his course tonight, his subject covering Jacksonian democracy as it dealt with nullification. It is to regretted that the course was not pro vided for in a business-like manner and a better patronage secured for what is certainly a high class course or lectures. The telegraph office is to be moved soon from the postoffice to the Algona State Bank building and Miss Eva Lantry is to return home from Sheldon and take charge of the office as soon as the transfer is made. The office will occupy the center front room over the ever shown in Algona.

Friday night Miss Stamy. dressed in pants, coat, overcoat and slouch hat, called at the postoffice with the notice, which had been taken from the envelope, and called tor the letter.

There was not, in fact, a cent of money in the registered letter she was so anxious to get hold of, and persons familiar with the manner of settling such matters would have known better than to have attempted the imposition. Strange to say, Mr. Chrischilles has not so far received a single clue by which Schuerle could be located. He is known to have been in Burt in June, and later he was heard from in Minnesota. He has always been a wanderer, but at the same time he was expecting the money, and so his long absence and silence give ground for the apprehension that he may be dead.
