It especially brings home to all who have spent the intervening 30 years in Kossuth county the increased purchasing power the "almighty dollar" has gained in that time. It is not necessary to give present prices of the commodities named in this list to prove that the dollar is worth now in the comforts of life two or three times what it was then. This . has an important bearing on tho labor question so much talked about the past ^.year. It shows that the laborer, unless ' his wages have been steadily decreasing, has been steadily gaining in tbe rewards for his toil. The farmer and manufacturer may or may not have been benefltted by the marked cheapen- Ing of their products. But about the wage earner, who buys his food and clothing for half or less than half than he did then, there is no question unless 1 his wages in dollars have likewise gone down half or more than half. A table of wages is not necessary to show that they have not decreased. The farmer * who has seen his selling prices cut in '„ two is paying a half more in money for " ( ', his hired help than' he did 30 or 20 • ' years ago, and the day workmen in >< - towns, and the girls in domestic service / both get half or nearly half more than • they did then here in Kossuth county. Although commodities have gone down wages have gone up, and the purchasing power of the wages has doubled. •That is the history of wages all over the United States. And yet in spite of what statistics show an idea prevails that the laborer has been falling behind. It is due to the fact that the demand for the comforts of life has increased steadily with the power of supplying them, and people complain now of deprivation because they fail to get what at one time they never even hoped for. The same 1 'ones in Kossuth, who 30 years ago made their firkin of " apple sass" out of wild crabs and sorghum and treated the 30- cents-a-pound dried apples as a luxury, now buy California fresh fruits, Muscatine water melons, and Georgia strawberries, without realizing that they have any more wants than they did then. And the laborer, who was glad to take New Orleans sugar, if he had anything but home raised sorghum, at 18 cents a pound, lately indulged in the best granulated sugar at five cents a ,. pound without realizing that the conditions of living had improved, and without special gratitude either to tbe men or the public policies which had ' made the new conditions possible. Tbe • same pioneers, who can vividly re- jnember going every spring into a Cellar waist full of water to fish out 'their barrel of side pork, are now without reflection worked into a state of alarm for the future of the country bei '.cause laborers, who have been housed ' 4° homes in Pullman with city sewer? • t ', water works, and electric lights, ' fcave come to want partly through the -rascality of the Pullman company, but , mainly through a taste for beer and Upery, and through the habit of treat- common necessities what the !M*fe afeoui half the they dldje dd it* SAMtttBL 3, One $f the first objects of interest to the new student at the state university attowatJity for many years haa been the old war governor, whose ftmefat yesterday marked the close of a long and honorable career., tie lived in a Very plain home OB the outskirts Of tbe city, droVe to h!s office in the bank ih a very plain cart drawn by a very tirdi* flary horse, looked as though the story that his good wiie had sewed the col* lars on his shirt to insure his having one 0ii4 blight be true, and never ia habits of life got very far removed from the €ays when with ax On shoulder he came to Johnson county to makfe a clearing and establish a home. He was a large, plain, kindly looking man. He talked in his campaigns to Iowa City audiences as to old friends. John P. Irish in his time was a thorn in the republican side and it often became Mr. Kirkwood's duty to correct some of the impressions made by his brilliant ora* tory, but he never attempted oratory himself and answered Irish as one •neighbor would another at a school meeting. In 1881 ho made a speech which was peculiarly illustrative of the man. As secretary of the interior under Garfield he had been severely criticised for failure to keep the work of the office up, and to grasp fully the matters brought before him. He sold that what might be said of him by strangers ho was somewhat indifferent to, but that among his friends and neighbors he was sensitive to unjust criticism, and he then • proceeded at some length to review Ms work as one who was taking a family gathering into his confidence. Mr. Kirkwood was great in moral integrity. His strength was in crises which bewilder men of much more brilliant genius and of greater public experience. A rough common sense showed him the right of the issue, and his courage was equal to any emergency. He went from chopping wood to canvassing against slavery. From the stump ho went to the governor's chair. There he squelched the anti-draft anarchy as Jackson did nullification, and there he placed Iowa at the head of the loyal states with an unquestioning obedience to all demands of the government and a zeal for the cause which made him one of the conspicuous figures of the civil war. His death removes Iowa's most noted character. It should be commemorated by placing his statue in tho hall at Washington reserved to each state for the purpose of preserving in marble the forms and features of its worthiest citizens. great dad fidghty of the earth shfidder at his Approach." *he «rord8 With tthieh an Snglisn clefgynian had c6mfo?ted many dying ones, only Wfuhg a shrieking protest from the lips of Cowper, 'fhe commercial news that encourages a "bull" depresses a " bea*."

What conies to me must be automorphic. 1 haVe been reading Mrs. Clifford's "Love Letters of ft Wbrldly Womati." Let me write a love letter. " Bear Friend ! I s*t before you as one in a theater sits before the stage. The curtain is down now and that is all I see. Will it presently arise and disclose the many beautiful things in your life? Shall 1 See how ybu live, what you love, what you think, what you desirel Will you disclose all, permitting me to follow every role you take! I shall be entertained, but also, which is far better, instructed and exalted," If I could choose my occupation, I would devote myself to criticism, following it after the fashion dear to Renan and his disciples. " The true critic neither concludes nor excludes; his pleasure is to understand without believing, and to profit by the results of enthusiasm, while still maintaining a free mind unembarrassed by illusion." I want to contemplate, to comprehend, to contain all life, without being obliged to have "views." I do not want to bo dogmatic, but skeptical, that is, inquiring and free. •H-H. We are often disappointed when we look for uniform results. What, for example, disgusts one man does not invariably excite aversion in all 'men. Burton drove away melancholy by listening to the ribaldry of the river men of the Thames. It always made him laugh immoderately. Says Sir Thomas Browne: "Even that tavern music, which makes one man merry, another mad, in me strikes a deep fit of devotion." The Ames Times says: A correspondent writing from Webster City to the Chicago Herald says they are going to defeat Dolliver over there for congress this fall. We want to say to this rainbow chaser, whoever he may be, that there' is just as much possibility of defeating Dolliver this year as there is that the sun will rise in the west tomorrow morning, or any other morning, for that matter, or that the waters within the banks of the placid Skunk will run up stream when the fall freshets set in.

FBOM A PBEAQBEB'S yOTE BOOK, I knew a lady who prayed in secret two or three times a day. She was a constant reader of the Bible, of religious books and papers. She was an enemy of the dance and of certain other amusements supposed to have a deadening effect on tbe spiritual life. Her favorite text was, "The Fashion Pi this World Passeta Aw&y?" But, withal, §he studied fashion plate?, and when jt became the proper to lengthen gowps, had trains ad- Tben "What do I know?" asked Mont taigne. We behold yet do not see. M. d'Aubonne could see in Rousseau nothing but " a silly lad, a little mind without ideas, narrow in every respect, who might one day become a village priest, but could hope for no better future." To Pilate. Jesus is a harmless fanatic, and to the Pharisees, a blasphemer. To Pope Leo, Luther was only a turbulent monk, and the Reformation, a dispute of monks. An old Austrian colonel never saw in Napoleon aught but a persistent violator of the rules of war. To Goldsmith's landlady, Oliver, doubtless was an impecunious scribbler from whom it was very hard to collect rent, "and he was nothing more." To Mr. Bounderby a workman was a "hand." One man standing in the presence of the great mountains will be reminded of God's faithfulness, another will say, " what a poor place to raise potatoes." 1111 Who is right? 'Who knows the secret of life? Whom shall we follow? Moliere and Pascal, who lived at the same time, beheld life clearly, and came . to opposite conclusions. Pascal said: "Outside of religion all is "naught." Moliere said: "Enjoy the spectacle of the world." «•«. Often I am taken possession of by the spirit of discontent. I long for change. As Taine would say: "The contemplation of the ideal sets one in arms against the actual." But whether or not I am contemplating the ideal, I want a new order. What a vast amount of literature is inspired by the spirit of discontent. Much of the Bible, Dickens, Thackeray, Hugo, Emerson, Alfred de Musset, Heine, Lowell, Olive Schreiner, Shelly, Byron, Burns, Swift, Sir Thomas Moore, Mazzini, Hamlin Garland, Matthew Arnold, Hawthorne, Tennyson, Juvenal, Tacitus, Charlotte Bronte, Carlyle, Hardy, Tolstoi, Marie Bashkirtseff, and many others. One might from both ancient and modern literature compile a long list. The wisdom of dealing .in futures may be questioned. " Take no thought for the morrow." " Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof." The oracle is dumb, but if it could speak it might tell us that the successor of Socrates, as the wisest man, was the individual who took care for the present and let the morrow take care for itself. Yet we cast the horoscope of coming days and sigh for a double portion of tho spirit of the prophet. All our public meu must be watchmen. Poor watchmen! somebody is continually calling unto them; "What of the night?" -••... •*-(•++ - ,.. I meet many people who are as anxious about the future as ever were the ancients. They still seek the wizard, the sorcerer, the individual who peeps and mutters. With what joy would they hail a new oracle of Delphi. The only way to tell 4 man's fortune, if indeed, there is a way, is to consult bis heredity, his environment, his soul. In what has been bequeathed to him, in wnat surround? him, in what he inexpressibly desires, you may find much of his earthly future. Even then there is an unknown quantity which we never discover. Th^re are vast tracts of unexplored territpry in tbe toyman spirit. l5ailey reports the theatrical perform 1 ance at Algotta Monday night, to open the season there, first class. Burt Monitor: Thos.

An Iowa paper remarked that unless it rained pretty soon petitions would be out for an appropriation for watering the fish in Jim river. To which a South Dakota paper has responded by adding that over in Iowa it is so dry that the hogs have cracked open and will need to be soaked up before they can hold swill. Bancroft Register: We overheard a Ledyard citizen complaining, yesterday, because of the manner in which the saloon is allowed to flourish in the little town to the north. He wondered why the county attorney did not hear of it, as it was a louder joint than some of the " health" resorts that have been demolished by him. This is the way " Our James' " own paper speaks of him in Fort Dodge: Jimmy Ryan, the bard of Kossuth county, was a lingerer in Fort Dodge this week. Jimmy says the farmers of Kossuth county will be able to count more dollars as a result of this year's crop than ever before, which is not bad for a year of panic, drouth and general disaster, as viewed from a republican standpoint. The Ruthven Frae Press moralizes as follows: And now the Spencer boys are boycotting the school ma'ms and other young ladies who assisted in making life enjoyable to the " blue uniforms" while in camp there. Strange, isn't it, what a vindicative spirit these male bipeds carry around. Suppose that camp bad been composed of "female women" attired in attractive uniforms, or no uniforms at all, how many men within a radius of forty miles do you think could have been found at home to carry in the coal, and mind the baby? Al. Adams gives an interesting reminiscence of himself and says: Twenty years ago the first of September the present editor, with but ten dollars in ready money, took ••'charge of the Independent. He has not that much ready money now, but he bas gained twenty pounds in weight and has kept several families out of the poor house during the time that bas elapsed. Some of his friends told him when he commenced that there was no room here for a democratic paper, but the result has proven that an honest, consistent course, even on the minority side of politics, will make friends of all fair-minded people in any community. So far we have had no occasion to se'll out the only means we have of a livelihood and so far as we see only entirely failing health or old age will bring about such a change in the Independent.

Hofius at the Baptist church last Thursday was attended by a big gathering of old set* tiers and friends of tbe family. Rev. Stevens preached aa appropriate discourse, and the remains wet'e taken to the grave. The fullest report of the tragic manner in which he met his death is published in the Hot Springs Daily Herald, and as it has not been given yet, we publish it in full: " Yesterday afternoon about half-past 3 news was brought to town that Wm. Hofius had been fatally shot by a companion while hunting in a canyon east of Burke's place, about eight miles from here. Deputy Coroner Joyce was at once notified and he impannelled a jury and with Dr. Adams and Sheriff Blakey they at once set out for the scene of the tragedy. It appears that a party consisting of W. H. Rimmer, John Rimmer, his son, Elljs Cornett, and Wm. Hofius went out to the canyon early in the morning after some deer that had been seen there. At a certain point they separated, W. H. Rimmer and Hofius remaining with the baggage, and the boy and John Rimmer and Cornett going down the canyon for four or five miles. Until they returned they saw no game, but presently shot at a rabbit, and, as tbev thought, scared up some deer. They certainly saw the weeds move and found the fresh beed and deer tracks. In the meantime Hofius had seen a plum thicket some distance down the canyon' and told Rimmer the elder that be would go down and gather some, which he accordingly did. After he had been there' some time he saw Cornett and Johnny Rimmer returning, and thinking to scare them imitated the mew of a wild cat and rustled the bushes. Johnny, who was about twenty feet in advance, stopped on hearing the noise and looked over in the direction from whence it came. Cornett stopped too; he did not hear the mewing, being slightly deaf, but he saw the movement in the bushes and without taking time to think, fired, killing Hofius almost instantly. "The coroner's party had not much difficulty in finding the place. The body was tied on to Blakey's horse and they started for home. Choosing a different route, however, they lost their way and wandered over the rough, broken country, through canyons and over mountains all night. The horse carrying the body missed its footing climbing a hill and fell, rolling over to the bottom, so they bad to untie the burden and carry it themselves the rest of the distance. They got into town about 1 o'clock in the morning. The inquest took place this morning and the account given by the witnesses was substantially as above. " Johnny testified that there was no ill feeling between Cornett and Hofius. They were jolly and good-natured and had always teen good friends. W. H. Riramer's testimony was to the same effect, both believing that the shooting was purely accidental. Cornett said he thought a deer was in the thicket. He did not see anything but the moving of the bushes and did not hear anything. As soon as the shot was fired be ran up, but Hofius was dead by the time they reached him. " The occurrence is a very sad one. Hofius was a vory steady, industrious young fellow, well liked by all who knew him. He came to this country from Iowa about six years ago and took up a ranch near Oelrichs, which he still owned at the time of his death. It is said that he owned a few bead of horses, also. He has worked here, driving team, principally, for A. D. McKay and for the college. Ellis Cornett is feeling terribly over the sad accident, for which he is hardly to be blamed." W. Cass, who bought 2,000 acres of best timber land in Arkansas, together with a large mill, from a receiver at only 30 cents an acre. He employs 260 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 bettet 1 able tb meet all legitimate competition than we are, The freight from this milt to- western Iowa is less than it is from. Wisconsin. The mill has a daily ca* pacity of 30,000 feet of lumber and runs* the year around. History shows that the merchant frho 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 reaion 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 pay for tho goods; but come to us as though you meant business, with fire in you eye and money in your pocket, and our prices will fairly make your head awim. We now have on hand a large pile of Iowa and Wisconsin hardwood lumber which we offer at $10 a thousand until it is all sold. Remember you can get the Finch patent chimney top only from us, as we have the exclusive sale in Algona. We sell cedar moth-proof carpet felt at 2 cents a yard. Algona brick at $8 a thousand; Mason City sand stone at $4 a cord. We will also- give you a bargain in a new wide-tire truck wagon or our portable enginev we must have one larger. Yours truly, J. A. HAMILTON & Co. FOE A BI& OOOTTY PAIK. Preparations Are Malting with That; Prospect In View—A New Feature —Some Good Races. C. B.i Matson, who has been assisting Secretary Butler in county fair work, says that he saw five farmers Monday wbo will make big stock exhibits. This is a fair sample of what is indicated all over the county. If th& weather is good Kossuth will have the biggest and best exhibit ever shown in this part of Iowa. Those planning to show stock will do well to notify the secretary in advance so that stalls will be in readiness. A full programme of attractions cannot yet be published, but will be in due season, and visitors- can be assured that the races and amusements will be excellent. > TWO IMPORTANT ITEMS. _ All the stock will be judged by outside judges who have never been engaged before, and all premiums will be paid in full in cash. AT THE OPEEA HOUSE. The Woodward theatre company will play at 50 and 25 cent prices during the fair at the opera house. A BIG POULTRY EXHIBIT. The association decided to build a poultry house this year and offer a new premium list for tho county's fine poultry. In addition to this the Pratt Poultry Food company of Philadelphia offer a lot of special premiums. While not large the premiums are sufficient to pay all for bringing out thnir fancy stock, and Kossuth has enough to furnish a city poultry show. Wm. Heathershaw, the poultry man of Greenwood, has this department in charge. Jas. IIofiuB Goes to Hot Springs. Monday the brother of the dead man started for Hot Springs to investigate into the accident and also to attend to closing up his business affairs, William took about $1,000 worth of property with him and has accumulated some besides, He was esteemed by all, as is shown by the foregoing report and also by the letter received by bis father from an attorney in the place who knew him well. The letter is as folio ws: "HOTSPKINQS, S, D., Aug. 30.— Mr. W. F. Hoflus, Algona, Iowa— Dear Sir: The very sad accident which pefel your son, William, at our place a few days ago has caused his friends here much sorrow, as he was well thought of and respected by all who knew him.

He did some work for me in constructing the buildings and other improvements on the Chautauqua grounds in our city and in our own home, and I was, 'perhaps, as intimately acquainted with him as anyone else in Hot Springs, I desire to assure you that you have the hearWelt sympathy of all of William's friends in this city.
