THESOLDIMSATSMCM Webster City Got the Silvei- Cops,'Although Company 1? Made Some Very Good Scores, A Border Brigade Veteran Passes —Complimentary Words—Other Mews of the Northwest. Company F came back frOin Spencer without either of the silver cups the boys won two years ago and one of which they captured last year. If they had held that this year it would have been theirs, but Webster City 'took it. Company F with Melzar Haggard, J. M. Walsh, Chas. Witham, Guy Taylor, and W. E. Ward, as rifle team, lacked two points on one cup and three on the other, coming in second in both contests. The Webster City score was 91 at 200 yards, 87 at 300 yards, and 90 at 500 yards, making a total of 268 out of a possible 375. Private Wilsey of Webster City also made the best individual score, 02 out of a possible 75. CompanyH of Sioux City had a clever scheme which Col. Cooke and Capt. Schermerhorn stopped and they refused to shoot. The five men used only two rifles, the first ones to the score getting the range, elevation, etc., and the others making big averages. Some loud talk was made by the Sioux Cityites when each one was ordered to use his own gun or get one, but Col. Cooke was sustained in his decision, which was in accordance with all rules of rifle contests. In the field-day contests Col. Cooke was one of the judges and Capt. Haggard one of the record keepers. The only Company F men to get a record was Boals, who came in second on throwing the 10 pound shot, which he put 27 feet and 10 inches. The Spencer parade ground was the best the boys have yet camped on, the range wus perfect, and the camp as a whole was the most successful yet held by the Fourth Regiment. A few, none of them from Company F, raised some disturbance Sunday night, and the citizens were very indignant. The Herald gave the whole camp a roasting, but the News hits the nail in the following comment: "When Spencer people complain of the Sunday night melee they should remember that Spencer beer shops are mostly'to blame for it. Fill a lot of young men with "booze" and they'll do the rest. The city authorities should have used all diligence to completely suppress the sale of all intoxicants this week (we are not saying they should stop then.) What was seen Sunday night was nothing but young blood set on fire with alcohol, most of it dealt out in Spencer for the profit there was in it. Let those who furnished it bear the blame and the disgrace." tion is one of the'solid financial instltu' tionsiii the state, having just been inspected by the state bank examiner, whose statement can be seen at the office of Gaass & MbAdoo, Parties seeking a safe and profitable investment, and those wishing to build on the installment plan, will call oh local secretary or H, A. Gaafde, local agent. Base Bail at Ilumboldt. The last of a wordy row between Humboldt and Clarion ball nines is the following challenge from Clarion: We will give you your choice of the three following propositions, to-wit: We. will play you on any grounds within thirty miles of Clarion, Humboldt exoepted, for $1,000 a side, "Humboldt stylo" (one Clarion man and the rest imported,) or we will play nine Clarion men against nine Humboldt men for any purse you may name without limit. Or Clarion will donate a purse of $25 to be contested for by the Humboldt first nine and the Clarion second nine. Dolllvor's Eloquent Brother. Mr. V. B. Dolllver has a very urgent invitation from Chairman Manley, of the national republican committee and the Maine state contra! committee to, with ex-Speaker Reed, address a mass meeting, the opening of the campaign, at Old Orchard Beach Maine, August 25, and to remain in the campaign to its close September 8. The Messenger says: He hus accepted the invitation and leaves in a few days to fill his engagement. His work for tho November election will be in Massachusetts, New York, Michigan and Illinois. The Kind of Property to Buy. The Anamosa Journal says: According to the Algona UPPER DES MOINES, a man in Algona owns a farm only six miles from town which ho has never seen. He says there is no such a thing as making a mistake in trading for Iowa land, and never thinks of going to look at a piece anywhere in this section. He will take it on his own knowledge of the country generally. There are many bargains made by men with eyes wido open, that are ten times more hazardous than this. It is hard to find worthless farms in Iowa. Negro Trumps at Sheldon. Last Saturday evening when the Illinois Central train left Sheldon, it was boarded by two negro tramps.

Hefley, who was a member of Company D, of the Northern Border brigade, posted at Chain Lakes after the New Ulm massacre in 1802, died at Emmetsburg last week aged 66 years. From the Democrat we glean details of a varied career: Pie enlisted as a union soldier in the Mexican war at tho age of eighteen, and spent two and one-half years in Mexico. Returning to Minnesota Territory, he was married to Miss Mary Mahoney, at Ft. Snelling, June 8, 1849. He located at Ft. Dodge in 1850, and built the first log cabin outside the neighborhood of the old fort. Then he was known as the first white settler west of Boone. At the time of. the Indian massacre in southern Minnesota, he became a member of the Webster County Guards and spent the winter of 1862 and 1863 at Chain Lakes guarding against the encroachments of the red men. A year or two after be entered the Union army and served about a year in the great civil war. His record as a soldier in two wars was one of earnest devotion to the causes for which he fought and suffered. He was once sheriff of WeV ster county. In 1866 he became a resident of Palo Alto, and has since remained here, For years he was a farmer in Nevada township, In the early history of the county he was chosen county judge, and was elected sheriff one term. Several years ago he moved to this city and engaged in the livery business, A few years ago he resigned and was chosen justice of the peace, whiph position he held until his death. A'gona Deposit and Loan Branch, The Armstrong Journal says: H. J. Edens of the Algona Deposit and Loan association was in our town last week and organized a local board of the association, with the following officers and directors; Amie Peugnet, president; I. M. Pritohard, vice president; Emmet County bank, treasurer; Gftajs & MoAdo, secretary ^nd H, A« Gaarde, When the train arrived at Archer, the conductor put them off and stood on tho rear platform to keep them from boarding the train when it started. This so enraged the tramps that they fired at the conductor, the ball striking the car a short distance from his head. The authorities were informed and Sheriff Carter immediately started in pursuit of the negroes. They are now in jail. Goo. W. Hnnua>8 BlK JTarin. Hugh Smith has been out to tho farm Geo. W. Hanna has been opening north, of LuVerne. He says: Wo found Manager Ormsby just finishing up threshing 5,000 bushels of small grain, which went about 60 bushels to the acre. He also has 210 acres of corn which he thinks will turn out 40 bushels to the acre. The evergreens which Mr. Hanna set out last spring have all died, but the forest trees are doing finely, considering the dry summer, Railroad Crew Arrested, A tramp boarded the train at Sheldon with the intention of going to St. Paul. He claims he gave one of the brakemen a dollar to allow him to ride. The conductor came along and told him to pay fare or get off. The tramp refused and the conductor threw him off while the train was in motion. The tramp fell under the wheels and got one leg taken off. The entire crew was arrested by Sheldon officers Saturday, Worse Off Than We Are, In Union county farmers have turned stock out into the highways to seek their own food. In one field near the county farm is said to be a number of horses, and a placard on the fence says: "Take your choice," Farmers in some localities are said to have killed many young pigs, fearing they would not have feed to. keep them through the winter.
