The mews of the death of Miss Nell Walker, daughter of O. C. Walker, which came by wire from Chicago Sat^ urday evening, was a shock to the people of Algoha, as it was known to but few that she was ill. Miss Walker died in the Chicago Baptist Hospital, where she had been since Thursday last, and where she underwent an operation for the removal of a tumor, from the shock of which she did not recover! The remains reached here Monday morning, accompanied by Mr. and Mrs. Will F. Walker, with whom she had lived since going to the city in September, and by Rev. Walter M. Walker, of Elgin, 111., and Rev. Rome Walker, of Belvidere. The funeral was from the residence yesterday afternoon, Rev. A. O. Stevens and Revs. W. M. and Rome Walker,brothers of the deceased, officiating. The services were attended by a large gathering and were impressive and affecting. Nell Walker was born in Grafton. Vermont, Jan. 3, 1851. In 1854 she went with her parents to Wyoming, 111., and in 1878 cacio v.'-h them to A.1- gona. She was ;i school teacher for fifteen years. Her religious life was marked by earnestness and by that self sacrifice which was in all her relations the distinguishing trait of her character. She united with the Baptist church in Wyoming when but fifteen years of age, and was ever after faithful in her following of the Master. In her family relations she served with, a fidelity prompted by love which few have equalled,and it is a truth that what she did was not done for self but for others, who alone know' how brave was the heart and how heroic the spirit which made her life what it was. Her death is a great present sorrow to all who knew her, yet a sorrow lightened by joy in the memory of a life so nobly crowned with the best fruits of living.

GOOD WHILE THEY LAST. The REPUBLICAN, like most other enterprising county newspapers, .has frequently offered premiums to subscribers paying in advance, and to a limited extent it will do so this year, but only so long as our present supply holds out. This premium is especially valuable to farmers, and the offer below is intended for their benefit. It is the FARMER'S LABOR-SAVING ACCOUNT BOOK. The account book is gotten up with a view to the especial needs of farmers and is a very desirable thing to have in the house. It is of legal cap size, with stiff manilla covers, has space for miscellaneous memoranda and has ruled monthly expense account sheets, showing articles purchased' and articles sold during the year. It contains a great fund of information valuable to the farmer and handy for reference, including tables, estimates, computations, blank forms, facts for builders, recipes, etc. It is a 25 cent book and no farmer can afford to be without it for four times that, It can be had by farmers who pay j« advance for 1896, Anyone wishing to pep one of these bopfcs ca,n do so, at'this office, , - .

It was a liuit by the intei>~ yejers against a dozen or more attach-, - ing creditors, for the recovery of goods,-. or rather of their stipulated cash equiv* • alent,$1600, the goods having been sold ' by the receiver. This was a hard fought " case, and included a charge ot fraud against Frink in securing the goods, in- signing a property statement not justi-^ fled by his financial condition. Gea- E. Olarke appeared for Frink, Judge Cook and Sullivan & McMahou for the •> intervenors; and Cloud and Barney^Kelly for the attaching creditors, the great fight being between Frink and?, the interveners.
