Hie City Council Made the Purchase last Week—They Also Bought & New Road Grader, This Section Sees What a Real" Chinook" Wind Amounts to-^Other Matters of Local Moment, The city council at a special meeting last Wednesday closed the bargain for a new pump, and soon the water will begin to fly from the new well, Only one representative from pump dealers was here, and the deal was made with him by which the city gets a Laidlaw- Dunn-Gordon Co.'s apparatus, the price for which Is $541. This includes a man to come here and set up arid put it in operation. The new machine is somewhat similar to the one now in use in the water works, though with a 30-inch cylinder instead of 14, and is guaranteed to throw 80 gallons of water a minute with 20 revolutions. The council are satisfied that this pump is a good one for the money, though there was originally a strong sentiment in favor of buying one of the walking-beam pattern, much more expensive, of course, but more serviceable as well. The new pump is expected to be here in about ten days, and will be placed in position without delay. The pump house has been enlarged to accommodate the needs of the new machinery by adding 12 feet on the south. THE REGULAR MEETING. The regular monthly meeting of the city council was held Saturday evening. Among other matters of interest to the public was the road grader question, which was again brought up. Four weeks ago the council voted not to buy a road grader, but Saturday night they reconsidered the proposition and made the purchase, the old grader being turned in as part payment. The grader is the one on exhibition on the streets some weeks ago, and is said by good judges to bo an excellent machine. The council also granted the petition of residents of west State street for city water, and ordered mains laid along that street to Ridgely street, or rather as far as L. Hohn's, the mains to be put in as soon as it is demonstrated that the water supply is sufficient. That the supply from the new well, added to that of the old one, will be ample to put the water system on a paying basis does not seem to admit of doubt by those who have made the subject a study. The city has gone thus far this summer without sprinkled streets by reason of the scarcity of water in the old well, and the people have suffered so much annoyance thereby that the new order of things will be hailed as a blessing. " Saturday's Hot Wave. This section was visited last Saturday night by what would be termed in Kansas or western Dakota a "chinook" wind. It is so rare, a thing in this locality as to make it worthy of notice, though west of us 500 or 600 miles these winds are of frequent occurrence. About 9 o'clock there were many evidences of a btorm from the southwest. None came, however, but in its stead was a strong, cool wind which continued for upwards of an hour. This was followed by the hot wind referred to, and which continued, according to the testimony of those who sat up late, until-far into the night. The hot waye was not strong, but it was intensely suffocating, the mercury, as late as 1 o'clock Sunday morning, standing at 91 degrees. It was one of those peculiar phenomenon which is rarely known in this locality. During a residence here of 28 years the writer has never known anything like it, and old settlers recall nothing of the kind except once, when a warm wind came early one morning and lasted only half an hour. It is perhaps fortunate that the one of Saturday night did not strike us in the daytime, for, added to the intense heat of Saturday it is more than probable that everything green would have been withered under its influence. As it was, no damage resulted that we hear of. jiant. There is hd reason in them. The accommodations provided by the company and the treatment of the traveling public are only such HS will not drive travelers away. They are forced to acquiesce in many unreason' able rules and to yield up extortionate fees, JAOKSOH'BEALf! BEER, Possessing Five t»of Cent, of Alco* hoi, tt Won't tto lit tf his Portion of Iowa-Dumped oil the Ground. , The case against J. S. Schmitt, or rather against the "health" drink seized in his place last week, was heard before Justice Clarke on Monday, It was expected the Boone bottling works, from which the stuff was bought, would appear and defend, but they wisely kept away. According to the testimony of Drs. Garfleld and Kene- flck, who made an analysis of the stuff which for a name is labeled "Jackson's Health Beer," It contains 5 per cent, of alcohol, and thus comes clearly under the head of intoxicating drink. This being the case the justice ordered it confiscated, and his order was complied with. The lot included some three cases. . The newspaper man vt&a accorded the rare privilege of regaling the olfactory nerves with the contents of one of the bottles, and while it may not be that he is an expert in matters of this kind, his judgment is that any man who would sell or even give away such a vile decoction ought to be prosecuted, whether it is intoxicating or not, for of all the rank and nauseating smells that come from beer bottles this one beats the record. We understand a seizure was made of some stock in Schinitt's billiard hall to pay . the costs in this suit, but it is doubtful if enough wus found on which to realize $10. Extrava ance May He in paying too much for a thing or in paying too little, If you buy groceries for less than we ask, you'll not get as good quality— that's poor economy. If you pay more you pay too much, because we sell the best there are. * 4 ."Win. G. Clnrlco Heard From. A copy of the Lincoln, Neb., State Journal has reached this office which gives a full account of a trial in which Wm. G. Clarke, attorney for the Lincoln street railway company, and formerly of Algona, secured a verdict for the company in a damage suit. A point of interest in the case was a decision by the judge which declared the street railway ordinance invalid by reason of irregularities in its enactment. Mr. Clarke is evidently maintaining the family reputation. He possesses an exceptionally bright legal mind, and it is not a matter of surprise to know that he is winning laurels in his new field.

A horse race Saturday afternoon between a black pony owned by C. S. Coffen of Burt and a sorrel horse of J. E. McEnroe's resulted in an easy victory for the pony. The race was 80 rods and repeat for $50 a side, and was run on a strip of ground north of the Milwaukee depot. Quite a crowd was attracted and some money changed hands on the result. Those who dropped their " wad" on the race are now meditating on the uncertainty of all earthly things, horse races included, while Ike Finnell is engaged in a her' culean effort to find out who that "yap" was that wanted to borrow ten dollars.
