Sullivan, prominent in Al gonn for more than 30 years (lied last week Wednesday afternoon at his home on Cull street following an illness of several months with can eer of the liver. Funeral services were held Saturday from St. Cecelia's Cuthollj Church, with Fnthei Davern in ch.irpe, and burial was made In the Catholic cemetery. Mr. Sullivan has not been in gooil health for the last two or three years, and was the subject of sev ral operation. 1 } at the university hos pltal at Iowa City during the las two yesu-s or so. Early this sum mer his condition changed, and an examination at the Iowa City hos pital disclosed the cancer. Since that time Mr. Sullivan faile ( from day to day, and two weeks ag his death was expected at any time During recent weeks lie has at time lapsed into a coma, and failed t recognize members of the famil; and friends. The pain and suffering throug which Mr. Sullivan passed reconciled his family to his death, which came peacefully at 4;30 last week V.'ednesday. Known All Over Sln<«. Mr. Sullivan's desith removed one of the most influential members of '.he bar in this district and the state, and messages of condolance came from all over the state. Mr. Sullivan was born June 13, 1|862 in LaSalle, 111. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Timothy Sullivan, were both natives of County Cork, in Ireland, and came to this country early in life. .In 1871 the family moved to the vicinity of the present town of Lone Tree, where they farmed. Mr. Sullivan was graduated from Occasionally there comes a, death to every community that, while not unexpected, causes the community to stop in the mad lish of every-day life. There is sense of real loss, indefinable, liat can only be felt in the con- ciousnesK of fellow men. It matters not that he who died ,-as In the same profession or >usine«s. Sometimes the -real test' • f a man is found in opinions of hose with whom he comes in contact only casually. They know ilm as a friend, not as a lawyer. Thus it wna th?.t Algona was saddened last week Wednesday i.v the death of J. W. Sullivan. Hundreds of Algonians felt the loss of the man they had titled 'Judge," yet who was one of the ast to pass judgment on any nan. It is said that man is without honor in his own country. This Is not true of that deeper honor- that comes to a man in the thoughts of his friends made during a lifetime in a community. This honor is too seldom expressed. When a man. dies his life is judged unconsciously by everyone who knew him, and the honor earned is bestowed by the mind of the friend. Thus Mr. Sullivan was.judged by Algona last week, and he was universally given a. place among the highest in the memory of all who knew him. niv, v i ' in party of three others to do some re- The band will.

Farmers on the east side of the slough, toward which the fire is advancing, have dug a deep trench in an effort to put It out, all other attempts proving • unsuccessful, A county road crew put out the part of the fire that was approaching the east and west road,- and prevented the fire from crossing the road to the south side. County Engineer H. M, Smith has been at the burning area several times, helping and making suggestions, and believes that the fire is checked, The peat is believed to have been fired four weeks ago when a threshing crew was operating In the vicinity, 'Usually the slough has water standing, in it all of the time. The burned area Is traversed by a drainage canal to carry away the surplus water. The slough started drying up last fall during the drought, and continuation of the drought this year has removed all water. The slough was noted In days, past as one of the best duck hunting spots In northern Iowa, • Plateau country to excavate some of the old mounds. When Paul was in Honduras two years ago with the American Fruit Growers company he excavated some pottery and one of his companions found a beautiful Jade necklace. In the mound country there Is a race of Indians which still speaks the old English taught them by early explorers in the time of Columbus. Another remaining monument of the early civilization .'is" a little Catholic church which la called have the Church of the Straw Hat."

Mr. Sullivan remained at Iowa City till 1890, when he opened a law office here in April of that year. In 1894 Mr. Sullivan and S. E. McMahon formed a partnership that has lasted till the present.

C. Davidson. She- was taken to Rockwell City Sunday by Sheriff L. E. Hovey to begin. serving her time. The Mexican, woman was first bound to the grand jury under •. second degree murder charge, which; she was going to fight, and retained. Justice L. A. Winkel as her attorney. An offer to plead guilty to the* manslaughter charge was accepted. by County Attorney Shumway In order to save the cost of an expensive.- * trial. \- V •••'; '• The woman did not have a great- deal of money, and probably all ot the costs would have had to be pahEl by the county. The difference between the two charges Is minor tor" mitigating circumstances advanced; in behalf of the Mexican would have* probably resulted in a minimum sentence under the murder charge.
