There is a'complete change of the Northwestern time schedule this week- There is not a train that runs on the time of last week, and the changes are not only numerous but radical, and include the long talked of new morning passenger train to Des Moines. The latter is going to be the popular Des Moines train. It leaves here at 8:04 a. m. and reaches Des Moines at 12:15, making the run in four hours and eleven minutes. Leaving Des Moines at 4:45, it reaches Algona at 10:47 p. in., making the more leisurely run peculiar to the mixed train that it is. The mixed train from Des Moines which has brought the dailies of that city at 8:1<J heretofore is now scheduled for 7:10, and so an hour is gained, and we are given earlier morning papers than we have heretofore enjoyed. The favorite Chicago train, which has left Algona heretofore at 5:58, now departs at 8 p. m. and arrives in Chicago at 8:45 a. ro., making the run in 12 hours and 45 minutes, the best time yet. The time from Chicago over tbis route is but 25 minutes longer, the evening train leaving Chicago at 6 o'clock and connecting at Ames with our morning mixed train. There is a decided change in the afternoon trains, that going south reaching here at 1:12, and the northbound train coming al 2:44. Following is the complete schedule: Trains south—Passenger 8:04 a. mixed 1:12 p. m. and 8:00 p. m., freight 7:10 a. m. Trains north—Passenger 2:49 p, iu. mixed 7:10 a. m. and 10:47 p. m.. and freight 11:35 a. m. Passenger trains arrive in Des Moines at 12:15 and 7:65 p, m;, and J» Gbicago'at 7 a. m. and. 8;45 a. m. Trains 1 leave Chicago at 6 p.m. and 10:30 p. m., and leave Des Moines " f 1:80 a. in., 9:30.a. m. and 4:45 p. nii From W. M. Colby. WESLEY, IOWA, April 13, 1890. Editor KBPUULICAN: I see it stated that beet machinery has been so cheapened of late that a small plant can now be put in for $5,000. But suppose it costs twice that sum, $10.000, with the the increasing price of sugar taken in connection with the fact that the refuse ot the factory would fit in nicely with our stock and dairy interests, is there anything at this time that promises a better investment? 1 assume that our sou is adapted to the sugar beet but on that point I have very little data. Looking over the special sugar beet bulletin of the experiment station a few yeara ago I was disappointed in not finding a single report from Kossuth county. I at once sent to the station for seed and instructions and sent samples of the resulting crops for analysis, had hoped to enclose the report of he chemical analysis herein but find at the last moment that it is mislaid, suffice to say it was very favorable. My impression is that the soil in the vicinity of the Des Moines river would rtove more favorable for the sugar )eet than the soil of Wesley township. W. M. COLBY.

JFrom the Britt Tribune, April 16.— On Wednesday April 1, the mayor ot Emmetsburg ran amuck in that city. He became crazed with grief over the horrible crime committed in that county by masked men and seizing a mop-stick began to slay everybody right and left. He ran the stick through the editor of the Tribune and twisting it around and around before he could be stopped stamped the poor fellow until his face looked like a pan full of fresh liver. He then threw red pepper on the bruised flesh and seizing an axe cut both the poor fellows legs off close and fed his fresh and palpitating liver to a dog. Justthe.n Mrs. Senator McGilvery happened in when he seized the screaming woman and thrust her into the redhot stove head first slowly cremating her, and stifling her shrieks by dashing cupfulls of kerosene into her tncuth when she attempted to scream. Not satisfied yet the cold blooded demon with satanic ferocity next caught a little boy going to school and ran him through a sausage grinder, stuffing the remains of the poor child into an old stocking leg as ho emanated from the horrible instrument of torture. He then made his escape by the south gate. The mayor called out the fire company, the police, the W. 0. T. L. and A. P. As, armed them with clubs and staves and made strict search through the rubbish of the city, but he couldn't be found, he had turned into the country. Meeting a school ma'am he struck her with a post maul and felled her dead on the spot. He then ran a due westerly course to the brow of a hill when he spotted a mark and meeting a wayfaring man cut bis head off with a bucksaw and sewing it up in a buckskin bag played foot ball with it over 13 townships up hill and down, while the mayor's posse continued to search for the blood-thirsty villian. In the meantime the editor of the Emmetsburg Tribune had lost a large amount of blood, a little fatty tissue aqd some hair, while the stench .from the burning senator's wife was simply awful. Of course she might have smelled bad any other day as well as this particular day, but tins was her day to smell just the same. While these scenes were enacted on t«e iront streets a different scene was going on down near the place where the pull beads used to sraze in the rear of the town. In a poor dilapidated-hovel with nothing to shield them from the storm except a buffalo overcoat and a hard coal burner sat two men. One of them was an ex-editor the other a horse thief, the ex-editor was dying. Let me go cried thf editor, I have nothing to live for now, J haye lied all J»7 1$*™* am - knockedoutat the eleventh hour.. 1 want to die. You, he said, speaking to the other, can go, and steal more horses, life has roseate hues for you. but for me all is Wank. $004 bye. Poor devil, he died, we aje glad of it.
