THE GRANGE STORE. Removal Sale ! To, Close Out Before Movini Jury Fulls to Agree in the Thompson Case. The jury in the Jo. Thompson case (vere sent out Wednesday morning at Fort Dodge, and remained out all day, eturning into court in the evening without a verdict. A telegram to Geo. E. Clarke from Attorney Baldwin ays that the jury stood from the first ballot six for the plaintiff and six for defendant. It was a hard fought :ase, and the expense in trying it will be very heavy. Upwards of sixty witnesses were taken from this miuty. The Kohen case from Whlttemore vas taken from the jury Saturday by Judge Shiras and dismissed. The court held that plaintiff was not entitled to recover under the evidence given. It is said that the evidence of some of the witnesses was materially changed from what Was given by the same parties at the coroner's inquest. The case against Mr. Schleen, of Lotts Creek, for alleged violation of the revenue laws was dismissed. FOURTH REGIMENT ELECTION. A Meeting to be Held at Fort Dodge Monday, November 26th. Not for a long time has the interest in the affairs of the fourth regiment, I. N. G. been as prominent as, it is at present, over the succession of Lieut. Col. Rule, who 1 was recently elected brigadier general of the second brigade. By the election of Col., Rule, numerous vacancies will occur, which has aroused the strife for-promotion, and the result cannot be foreseen. A meeting has been called for all staff and field officers to meet in Fort Dodge on Monday the 26th to discuss the future plan of procedure. Just what will result from the meeting remains to be seen but from, among the numerous aspirants, candidates will probably be elected. For the lieutenant colonelcy soon to become vacant Maj. Humphry, by virtue of sonority of rank, in next in line of promotion. The major is a popular officer and doubtless would have noser- ious opposition to run—in fact, some of the candidates fora majority are said to be anxious to have him run, in order that he may not stand' in the way of ai realization ; Of their ambition'is doubtful whether the major wit tits to be lieutenant colonel, and this way complicates matters.,. .'. ll . It is known that Col. Thos. F.' Cooke of Algona, generalinspector of smjll arms practice, is anxious, and has be'en ever since the regiment's reorganiza- tiorj,,;bo,6ist>ure a place in the fielc or staff. So now huas an active anc even aggressive 'candidate for eithe lieutenant colonelcy or. a majority It is safe to say that any one "of the following officers is desirous for promo tion: Capt. I. A. Kirk, Mason City; Capt. A. F. Hoffman, of Webster City; Capt. John Cornforth, of Hull: and Capt. C. W. King, of Fort Dodge. It Major Humphrey refuses the lieutenant colonelcy and the regiment also refuses to 'giveit to Col. Cook, it is anybody's race among the ambitious captains for the.vacancy .—Fort Dodge Messenger. A New Railroad. IOWA FALLS,: la., Nov. 19.--There are now two chances to one that there will be a new road built northwest from Alden nextspring running by the way of Clarion and thence northwest toconnect with a through line. There is arnovementon foot beaded by Judge Porter of Eldora and backed by- influential men of capital along the line of the proposed road, to build p, road through this territory, in case nothing is done by the Chicago, Iowa and Dakota road, which now connects the Northwestern at Eldora Junction and runs to Alden. This road has long contemplated an extension of its road! and in such an event the new company' which is known as the Alden, Clarion- and Western will abandon the project. The new company is receiving much encouragement all along the line and it is confidently expected . that with the advent of spring, dirt will be flying along the line on a new road to northwestern Iowa. A glance at the map shows that a good territory would be open to this proposed road by building from Aided to Clarion and from Clarion to Algona and thence northwest to Estherville. The territory for such a road is first class and there are good reasons«for thinking the project feasible, Algona should interest herself in the scheme and help to push the project as much as possible. Will Double Their Money, ,; Webster City Tribune: There is a great boom now on in northern and northwestern Iowa lands, and Webster City mep of means are pot asle§p || ; all Decorated Crockery ^""MOTiter'Sets ,., ,, A Chunk of Experience. A young man who had been doing lerding and other work in the Fenton neighborhood for some time past ihought a few .weeks ago that he Nould try his fortune in Chicago, and accordingly .went there. He could not find employment, but kept in search for it until his money was all ne and his condition became quite serious. Finally he got three days work on a steamboat and earned two dollars, and with that fund he determined to make a straight line forFen- ;on. He watched his opportunity and got into a box car that was about to be pulled out west, and was congratulating himself on his cuteness and good fortune when in crawled bhree or four other tramps. They sized up the young Fentonian and .inquired about his antecedents, and he told them he had worked three clays, etc. Then said one of them, "You must have some money," and seized him by the wrists. He shook the fellow off, and immediately the others jumped onto him, one of them holding a revolver to his nose. They took his money and watch and then kicked him .off the car. Then, as soon as he could gather himself together, he concluded there was nothing left for him but to walk home, and he started to do so. He tramped two days and was heatly starved, and though very loath tc do so, he was obliged to beg for something to eat. He had to ask at the third house before he got anything. Then he began, stealing rides again at-night on the blind end of Baggage cars, and was nearly frozen as well as starved when he finally reached home. He had a big chunk of experience. , /J. : Look ftt This. :'•$ A call at the newly located store of' W. W.
