The Clarion Democrat again this week speaks of that new road scheme from Aklen north and says: "The Algona people, since Clarion has been agitating the railroad question have also been casting about them and from the tones of their paper would be very willing to join with its in a movement to extend a line from Alden to Clarion and thence northwest past Algona. That Is the logical route for the proposed road, and we suggest that It would bo, a good plan for our railroad builders to co-operate with the people of that lively town in regard to the matter. They would bo active and powerful allies in the contemplated scheme and if it should ho successlul, would It give us a most admirable connection. Algutia for years has been casting longing glances in the direction of a line strip of open country between that place and this—the best opening for a railroad in the state.' Our people arc looking In the fame direction now, and why is it not good policy to join with them for the success of the-enterprlsc". Old Stand. .

Much interest is being taken in Episcopal church circles over the proposal for the appointment of an assistant bishop in this diocese. Bishop Perry confesses he cannot now attend to the wants of the entire state and is anxious that such appointment be made. The matter will be settled at the church convention to. .be..hold at Des Moines next month. The consent of the requisite number of bishops and standing committees has been secured and the only barrier now In the way of the appointments is a'guarantee of the necessary 1'tinds to pay the salary of the assistant. It is thought the required amount will be guaranteed. The name of Rev. Thomas E. Green rector of Grace Episcopal church of Cedar Rapids, has been mentioned in connection with the new office should it be created. Another Swindler. Another swindler has sprung up in the shape of a plow agent who claims to be travling for a Michigan company. He is selling plows to farmers at double prices and taking notes for the same that one-half of the amount be boarded out at the rate of one dollar per day If the farmer pays within ten days he is to have eight per cent discount. The agent also offers to credit on the note a dollar and a half for each customer the farmer may introduce. When he gets the note the "agent" disappears and the note turns up inthehands of third partieswhodc- mand settlement.—Stanhope Mall. quirles for his whereabouts but it was soon learned that he had left the county. Ho was over taken at Clarion and Is now at the countybastiloawait- ing the action of the grand jury in January.—Armstrong Journal. It Was Ever Thus. A gentleman whose name at one time occupied a place on our subscription list was suddenly seized with a desire to become rich, and in order to economise discontinued his paper. A short time afterwards ho Invested in a patch of blue sky for which he gave his note, and in due time awoke to the fact that he had been swindled. His note, which was held by one of the hanks, camo duo and he made the usual blg'kick on payingit; but this does not quite end the story. This same man did not altogether appreciate the unenviable notoriety he gained by the aforesaid transaction, so he called at the newspaper office and asked the editor to devote a half column or so of valuable space to setting him fore the public. But we did not have the space to spare, and said Napoleon of finance may thank his lucky stars that the same name he signed to that blue sky note Is not here given In leaded brevier next to the reading matter.—Forest City Summit.

Ho had been contemplating the act for nearly a year. Before taking his own life he wrote a brief but graphic description of his deed, as if it had already occurred, even to writing a display heading for the article. He- then, after drawing a check in favor of his mother, and another in favor of his partner, Hicks, to cover the balance of his funds in bank, wrote a brief but touching note saying he wits worn arid weary of life arid asking the care of all for his mother and sister. After his mangled remains were found his colnborcrs in the office, found the copy he had written for their paper. Ho leaves:a. mother and sister at Ames and hosts of friends. Pays to Think. ; Farmer John Johnson who lives north of town is possessed of tin In- ventlvejsurn of mind which h« frequently" puts into practical use. His latest effort was to convert an ordinary rolling coulter into a circular saw •by the use of a file. Mr. Johnson then attached the saw to the gearing of his windmill and was thus enabled to saw many cords of woodsln a day by means of the ingenious contrivance.

The supreme court has just decided that in cases where stock has been killed by dogs and the recovery for the loss asked frdrn the board of supervisors the decision of the board Is final and cannot be appealed from to the courts. The law taxing dogs creates a special fund that is to be applied to the payment of such claims under certnin circumstances. The court holds that the act of the board is the mere distribution of this fund and that its ruling cannot be appealed from to any court. How to Build Up a Town.
