Summer Goods . Reduced in Price at GAL AITH'S. The traveling tooth puller who exhibited in Algona went to Corwith and other towns. The Hustler says he did not leave any too soon. It says: He did a land-office business in removing bothersome grinders without pain, but notwithstanding the amount of work on hand for the following day, he wisely "pulled his freight." A few hours after the operation the drug which he injected into the gums began to take effect. The symptoms had all the appearance of blood poisoning. Reports from Goldfleld, LuVerne and other places which he visited before coming here, stated that several persons have been under the doctors' care since he operated on them. It is said that the compound he uses to deaden the feeling (cocaine and other ingredients) is a deadly poison, Not only did this scoundrel endanger the health of many, but swindled them out of their money, by requiring those who desired an artificial set of teeth to pay ten dollars in advance, promising to return and complete the work. Some one would save the public a good deal of trouble by notifying the authorities to take care of the gentleman. Why TUey Visited, The Etnmetsburg Reporter says: John Walsh and Earl Tennant, both members of Company F of Algona, got left in Emmetsburg, Saturday, while en route home.

They are positive that they wore only gone twelve minutes. AVhltteniore's Flro Engine. Whittemore will buy a chemical fire engine, and will test it on an old building.

Colby, the whiskey peddler who got entangled with the courts at Swea City and Algona, went to Bro. Platt at Forest City last week to secure an apology for various uncomplimentary references to himself in the Summit. Bro. Platt reports the interview and says: "We told him that this great weekly's reputation for truth and veracity is such that anything appearing in its columns 'could bo but the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help us Horace Greeley; and that we would see him further on the other side of Lime creek than Bro.

P. C. Pederson, living southeast of Armstrong: in Swea township, met with an accident Saturday evening which came near costing him his life. He started home about dusk in a prairie schooner, commonly called a wagon, with four sheets in the wind and as there was a good breeze he was sailing quite rapidly. Just before coming to the railroad track ho collided with another which caused him to stop so suddenly that he was thrown several feet ahead of his team, falling 'on his head, which knocked him senseless and cut a gash on the side of his head several inches long. The Journal reports the accident and says that the doctors fixed him so that he was able to get home the following morning. That Green Goods Expose. The publication of names of those listed as " suckers" by a bogus money firm in New York, in which Bancroft, Wesley and other towns figured, brings out one man from Forest City who beat the game. The Summit says that he, upon receipt of the usual proposition, wrote the parties that he 'considered them frauds and villains of the deepest dye, and at the same time expressed his doubts of their having any counterfeit money at all. In order to convince our man the rogues sent him a genuine one dollar bill, which he placed in his vest pocket with the remark that he had beaten them at their own game. A Curious Robbery, Mr. S. W. Morton of Van Orin, III., is the owner of a choice piece of land near Estherville. Friday morning about 2 o'clock he arrived in Esther' ville with a car containing horses and farm machinery. Mr. Morton himself rode in the car with the horses part of the time and being tir,ed ho fell asleep about midnight. At Emraetsburg he awoke and found that f J50 in cash and $350 in drafts had been out from his pants pocket, The Vindicator say's that a couple of boys on the same train were searched but nothing was found. A Competitor for Judge Qunrton, The democrats of the Fourteenth judicial district will hold a convention at Emmetsburg, Friday, Sept. 7, to nominate a candidate to be voted for this fail.

C. Hoflus had been shot at Hot Springs, S. D. ]t was signed by the deputy sheriff and no statement was made as to any of the details. The news spread rapidly and all sorts of speculations were indulged in by the people and his relatives until the Sioux City Journal came with the following report: ™ Ho ^ S S lI ^ as ' S - D -> Au S- 28.-Spccial: Wm. C. Hoflus was acoidontly shot tin-ouch the body and instantly killed .by Ellis Cornell while hunting three miles south of town today.

To the Editor: Let no one be deceived. Politicians, preachers, tramps, peddlers, and lawyers can say what they please; each is entitled to his convictions; but my views on the subject have nothing whatever to do with this article. Pardon a personal allusion, I would .endeavor to show you why we are entitled to your patronage, In the first place it may be well to state that we do no business for nothing. We aim to make a profit on everything which we keep for sale. Look out for the man who advertises goods "at cost." We were fortunate enough to associate ourselves with one Mr. G. W. Cass, who bought 2,000 acres of the best timber land in Arkansas, together with a large mill, from a receiver at only 30 cents an acre, He employs 250 colored men at 50 cents a day and'pays them in wild hogs and 'possums. There is no better timber on earth, and it is hard to conceive of anyone better able to meet all legitimate competition than we are, The freight from this mill to western Iowa is less than it is from Wisconsin. The mill has a daily capacity of 30,000 feet of lumber and runs the year around. History shows that the merchant who prospers is the one who has the best facilities for procuring good merchandise at the lowest cost. This is the reason we have enjoyed so good success while so many strong ships have gone down during the financial crisis of the past two years, "Goods well bought are half sold," We affirm without fear, and challenge proof to the contrary, that there is not in the state today another firm whose sales of hardwood lumber have equaled ours during the three years just ended, and please note how little advertising we have done during this time, The only reason that a few have not bought their hardwood lumber from us is because they did not know our ability to supply their wants, But we are willing that all should share the advantages which we offer. We are not seeking those customers who want two or three years' time to for the goods; but come to us as Did You . ••; Know That .,; "White Swan Flour" took Highest Award at the World's Fair?
