*$-- ESTABLISHED 1S6S. ALGOtfA $ IOWA, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, m. The Freshest and Best Eatables are Still a Specialty at the TO ESTABLISH HIS " REP," Rev. firooks Circulates a Petition in Livermpfe to Prove that He is of Good Character, The Stfangfe Proceeding Said to Have Resulted frotn ft Church Trouble— Other Northwest Notes, Rev. C. Brooks, a former Baptist pastor in Algona and latterly an organ and piano agent in Livermoro is in trouble. The Livermore Gazette tells Opera House Grocery, the story: A paper was being circulated on the.streets this week for the names of people who were willing to vouch for the reputation of Rev. Brooks for truth and veracity, or those who thought him incapable of lying. We very much regret that any person who hns lived in this town as long as Rey. Brooks has, and whose reputation is as well known ae his, should find it necessary to resort to such an extreme proceeding in order to defend himself against his accusers. And we wish to say that so far as his standing with the people generally of this community is concerned, it is not necessary, but he doubtless has use for this list of names elsewhere or where he is not so well known.

FARM LOANS. Having secured the agency of the New England Loan and Trust Company, I §ro now prepared to make ferro loans on five to ten years' time at the Jpweet possible rate, with privilege pf partial pay' bete due. Office over store, needless to say that he secured all the names he wanted, many of the business men writing a statement in addition to their name. It is not our intention to take sides or to mix up in any church squabbles; that is their own affair. But a little explanation is absolutely necessary to account for Rev. Brooks' extreme proceeding. He had made some trivial statement to the Baptist church pastor regarding the time of church service. The exact words of this statement we will not attempt to give, for therein lies the source of the trouble. But whatever the statement was, as afterward reported by the pastor to the church members, it was proven by what they considered a sufficient number, to be untrue; and on these grounds he was, if their action is sufficient and legal, expelled from the church. Regarding these church proceedings, we repeat, we have nothing to do. But as regards Rev. Brooks' reputation in general in this community, we but express the public sentiment when we say that we have considerable to do. Rev. Brooks hr,* been too long in this community, has done too much for i-eligious organizations, has spent too much money and has raised and is surrounded by too respectable a family for the voice of the Gazette to be silent when he is branded as a liar or his unblemished moral character is otherwise assailed. We cannot believe otherwise than that his accusers will in time realize that they have over-reached themselves in this matter, and that the difficulty will be properly adjusted. Wo hope so. Rev. Brooks naturally feels his position keenly, but manifests no malice. His action in fortifying himself with the good opinions of the community was done on the suggestion of his friends, to be used with others not residing here. A Second Gladstone, The Fort Dodge Messenger is responsible for this story on Congressman Dolliver: Passers by the Mason place today were treated to the unusual spectacle of a congressman engaged in hard labor. The reputation of congress, recently achieved is such as to raise the presumption that in such a case the man must be working out a fine, but this was not true. Mr. Dolliver was passing when the sight of a man wielding an ax on a big cottonwood tree aroused in him a singular yearning for some of the activities of his boyhood in the backwoods, and he borrowed the ax long enough to bring one of them crashing to the earth. With one big tree his frenzy seemed to weaken and he soon gained control of it.
