':'-*"^-^-' THIS OTMJB MB MOlKlBt AWONA, IOWA, W1BH1BDAY, 6. 1804 SLUGGERS IN THI TOM A Quartette of lTl2e Fighters Bounded tip at Ledyard Early Last Sunday Morning. TiiSy Afgiife Wth the HonoWblfi but Must Contribute to the School Fund Just the Same. Ledyard has been the headquarters for between 200 and 800 transient hay makers for some weeks. For awhile they spent their Sundays slashing into the hay fields. But then they declat-ed for a day of rest, and ball games be* ' tween rival camps, foot races, horse , races, and other comparatively harmless amusements occupied the seventh day. Then Turpln, the gambler and thug who was on Algeria's streets for awhile, came Up and succeded in arranging apprize fight with Ed. Goodwin, who is good looking enough to be in better business. It came off threo weeks ago In n hay barn, was generally considered a fuko gotten up to take in the dollar pieces, and was attended by about everybody In and about the hay metropolis. Goodwin was knocked out iu the second round, nnd Turpln, who evidently had read tho new Iowa law, skipped to Minnesota. With the advent of bruising a second Sunday fight was arranged for a week ago Sunday, P. Donalson and John Murphy,being the principals. Donalson is young and narrow shouldered enough to be anything but a fighter, but he knocked Murphy out easily, which may account for Murphy's silence in court Monday, he being the only one who had nothing to say. For last Sunday the fight was to be between Donalson ancf a big strapper named Jas. Ward. But Sunday morning early Sheriff Samson and Deputy Brunson drove into the north end and got into town as secretly as they could, but not without being seen. This prevented the gathering and so only the"chief participants were rounded in. The four were captured and brought before 'Squire Clarke Monday, when Goodwin admitted his offense, and the others wanted lawyers, and tried to convince the court that they couldn'tjlght even if they were set upon. They were the more earnest about their denials in proportion as they understood the law, which affixes as the penalty from $100 to $1,000 fine or one year in state prison or both. Those who had been assisting also were interested in the additional chapter which gives up to $500 fine or 150 days in jail to any man in anyway contributing or assisting in a fight. After hearing all the , facts in the case from the men 'Squire Clarke decided with the county attorney's consent that a fine of $25 and costs against each man would be better if they could raise the money than to bind' them over for trial at the county's expense. It was evident that the fighting had grown out of the desire of the hay men for excitement of some kind, rather than out of any spirit of lawlessness, and that the fines would be sufficient to check any further demonstration. If the men can get the money this will probably be the end of prizefighting in Kossuth. THBESHEBS OOMINg IN. The Drouth Districts Sending Crews Into Kossuth to Help Out—A "Wesley Teacher Promoted. WESLEY, Sept. 8.—Our schools commenced today with a full attendance. Prof. Barslou and Miss Jennie Pettibone, our veteran teachers, wore on hand ready for business, and the patrons of the school can rest assured of nine months move of excellent schools in Wesley. Mr. Nott of Sand Spring, Delaware county, arrived here Saturday with his threshing outfit and began work today. This makes two new outfits that have been shipped in here'this fall from the drouth-stricken section of the state to get threshing to do. Considerable land has changed hands lately in this part of the county. Yard Streeper sold his farm two miles east of Wesley lost week for $35 an acre. All land around here has advanced in price from three to five dollars an acre this fall. Miss Anna Longbottom has been engaged as one of the teachers in the West Bend schools. Miss Longbottom is one of Kossuth's most successful teachers, and we have every reason to believe that the school board and the patrons of the West Bend school will be pleased with her work as a teacher. Mr. and Mrs. T, H. Wadsworth, Mrs. J. W. Wadsworth, and Miss Maud Smith were Wesley callers one day last week. Miss Liona Hopkins and her sister. Miss Myrtle, will teach this year in Germauia township. Miss Mamie McCutchin came home from Arena, Wis., last Friday evening. She has been visiting friends there for two months. Miss Jennie Longbottom will begin her fall term of school in Swea town? ship nest week. J. F. Myers of Aokley is here this week looking after his land interests in this part of the county.

Yesterday John Ames, son of a well known old settler at Burt, was stand ing in his wagon with an iron rod about 10 inches long in some way fastened to the seat behind him am standing straight up. The team started suddenly and he sat back on the rod, which entering in front of the rectum, tore its whole leqgth into his intestines. There is no hope of covery. Notice of Bids for Ditching.

MED DEAD Me fagged Away at Mis Home in Spett Cef, oil Monday, Aftef ah llliiess of Only Four A Promiftent Educator, tot. Some Tim Connected with Out Normal School —The Funeral Today* A telegram Monday announced th death of Prof. Geo. E. Reed at Spencer He Was taken Thursday with ihflamnm ttott of the bowels and in four day died. The funeral was held thi morning at 10 o'clock, ahd Wtt attended by M ( iss Cramer and other from Algona.' Prof* Reed came t< Algona with Prof. Gilchrist when h took the normal school in hand. Afte his service here he went to Idaho t engage in engineering. It was whit he Was there that a loose glove caugh In the saw in the mill he was in and h lost his hand. The accident occurred late in the day and he was driven 2 miles over rough mountain roads in lumber wagon before he had medlca assistance. As soon as he was able he was brought to Spencer, where Mrs Reed's relatives lived, and where hi shortly took a country school to teach Later he was secured in tho town schools and last fall he was electee county superintendent and had jus finished his first institute, which wa very successful. His sudden cloatl coming to him when he was a pictur of health is a terrible blow to Mrs Reed, who, as a student in Algona, won esteem which has gp'own with all who have known her in her homo life It will be mourned by all who knev him and the ambitions he cherished He had a nervous eagerness to accom plish his work, whatever it was, which illy brooked the obstacles he met, am which made the agony of his lonj confinement after his accident almos unbearable. He was an energetic am successful teacher. He would not have students go out from his classes ignorant of the work. He insisted tha they should learn. He would have been a model superintendent, and hac his life been prolonged would have gone to tho front among Iowa ed ucators. It was the pleasure of THE UPPER DES MOINES to enjoy his intimate acquaintance. On the way to the editorial meeting at Spirit Lake we.spent a half hour with him in Spencer. He was happy, eager as o old, and full of enthusiasm over his institute. His death removes from the ranks one" who without help had made his own way, had met life not on its brightest side, had gained by struggle a, place of honor, and who had wltha ke_pt a cheerful spirit and a supreme faith in the wisdom and justice which rule the destinies of men. THE CITY CIRCUIT. C. B. Matson is taking the school census. The county fair opens Sept. 19. Exhibit something. Mr. and Mrs. S. S. Sessions went to Sioux City Monday on a visit. The normal school opened yesterdaj with over 40 at the first enrollment. Chas. Cohenour is back from his Illinois visit. He says crops where he was are good. Taxes are delinquent Oct. 1 and all should visit the treasurer and square up before that date. John Urch east of town had to kill a valuable horse which got cut up lasl week by a corn cuttter. W. H. Conner showed some corn in town last week that will make the boys hustle for a premium at the fair. J. E. Blackford and M. DeL. Parsons are in Des Moines helping make the populist programme for the state. A most enjoyable picnic was given at the Mann farm last Thursday. Those who were present will long remember t. Next week THE UPPER DES MOINES expects to give the details of a big 100 oot deep store building on state street that is to go in this fall. Marriage licenses have been issued to Frank P. Dennison and Estella V. ingery, J. J. Kelley and Mary Morse, B. H. Loyd and Edna A. Jones. Frank Heath, who has been at Erick Srickson's In Prairie, had a bay ricker all on him last week breaking a leg and cutting a bole in his skull. An even 100 tickets to the state fair lave been sold by F. H, Vesper, If he other stations are doing as well Cossuth will send Its share to Des iloines. This office has some ears of corn from 'erry Burlingame's Irvington farm, where 74 acres will average 40 bushels. They are as good ears as any county can show. Thad. Whitehill, who had his hand blown up in blasting rock near Burt, will save his hand but it is badly Tippled, as the muscles were all cut tut of the front of it. There will be a meeting of the Algona Library association at the home of Mrs, Ingham, Friday, Sept. 8, at 3 o'clock, sharp. We hope every member will attend this meeting. B. W. Haggard's band is getting well, but one finger is out of shape and a surgical operation will still be necessary. He expects to go to Iowa City soon to have the surgeon there attend ojt. Barney Lantry, oldest brother of Tbjos. H., |s candidate for state treasurer on the democratic ticket in K«n- sas.

We bear that Andy Dunlup ahd his brother have sold their oat crop this year at Ledyai-d for $5,000 cash. The Dunlaps farm lots of land and whett they get a yield it counts up. They had 1,000 uoros of flax otie season. Mrs. Carl Biegirig's 18-year-old son was riding a horse near.

L, Foster has boon ordered by the pension department to undergo a new examination. As he has become a populist lately, his opinion on the present administration Is hot so valuable as it would have been while he was still one of the unterrified. Dr. Morse has received an invitation from tho Masonic lodges of Des Moines requesting the Algona Masons to attend the laying of the corner stone of tho soldiers' monument at Des Moines tomorrow. As no meeting can be called he desires all Masons to take notice. Music and drawing are given the prominence they deserve in the high school. Miss Randall visits each room twice a week in the forenoon to give lessons in music, and Miss Louise McCoy visits each room twice a week in the afternoon to instruct in drawing, August Sterzbach has been very sick with his sore hand and fears that ho may be laid up all winter. A piece of tin was run into the joint below the thumb and the inflammation is extremely painful. It is possible that he will have a permanently stiffened hand. A woman was up from LuVerne Monday looking for a sister who had left home with a stranger who claimed to como from Algona, and who had hired her to work. Suspicion was aroused and S. Benjamin spent tho day investigating. The girl was found in town and has gone home. It was one of the usual escapades. Orders have come Irom the pension department to K Tellier for additional evidence of disability. Mr. Tellier was granted a pension nearly four years ago. The new commissioner ordered a new examination last spring and now wants more evidence to entitle Mr. Tellier to any rating at all. He will send affidavits at once. The big four hay- company at Ledyard are Wilson, Dunlap, Stephens, and Bean. They have had eight mowers L-unning, have cut over 7,000 acres of hay, have put 100 tons a day in stack, and are going to be rich out of this one crop. Hay has been about as good as usual up north. These figures are what make Marsh smile when ho is in town. C. C. Chubb is interesting himself in the Russian thistle question and believes that farmers in Kossuth county should be on the lookout for it. In its spread it may hit us and if tho law is observed it can be taken at the outset and stopped. Tho board will send out copies of the law on pest weeds, which makes it a misdemeanor to not kill them off, Donaldson, the pugilist from Ledyard, paid his $25 and costs and was turned loose yesterday. Ward, who iiad not fought, but who was to have met Donaldson, put up security for costs and is also free. The other gentlemen are awaiting .the wherewithal to liquidate and get into the Dalmy hay fields again and exhaust ;heir energies on "go devils." How much better off we are than the rest of the state appears from the state report on corn this week: "Cut- ing for fodder is now general in all parts of the state, and more than 50 jer cent, of the entire acreage will be cut and fed without husking. In the loutbern districts fully 80 per cent will )e cut and used as fodder." None will >e used for fodder here without husking. Thera seems to be a difference of opinion about the road tax under the new law, and some think that the •ownships can levy four mills and the county board one mill. The law clearly states that the board shall levy one mill and that the whole tax shall not exceed four mills, thus leaving but three to the townships. For next rear the townships tax cannot exceed ihree mills. Mr. and Mrs, A. Rutherford and daughters took a wagonette and team wo weeks ago and drove to Spirit Lake, ipending several days at Okoboji and be other resorts, and visiting friends at Estherville and other places on the vay. They had an enjoyable ride as the weather was pleasant and the roads perfect. It was Mr, Rutherford's first rip to the northwest and he says it is a great country. Alex. White is now of the opinion bat the way to master a bicycle is to go it alone. His better half held jm to he wheel for him one day last week and the machine balked for him in uch a way that his nose looks as hough a brick had flown squarely against it.

A solo was sung at the Obngrega* tlonnl church by Miss Loleta Levett of Stttt Diegrt, Cal.j Sunday. Miss Levett is a cousin of F. H, Vesper and is a singer in the Calhoutt Opera company, which she joltts sbotl in Chicago for tho coining season. Some weeks ago she and two other members were sick with typhoid fever. Oiio died but the other two recovered and Miss Levett has been recuperating. She has a cultivated voice and her solo was much enjoyed.

But it has neglected to show its usual alacrity for. good news anrl wo are compelled to record tho facts. Under the now law " reducing taxation'.' and making tho " necessaries" free, and in tho interests o.f tho poor man, sugar Is down to 15 pounds for $1 and tho close margin suggests that still loss will be given In the future. The social union brought out new talent Friday evening in F, H. Vesper, who gave a very lively description of what ho saw along tho southern Pacific in his California trip. J. J. Ryan discussed Labor and Capital ably and music was furnished by Misses Cornie Ingham and Lutio Wallace. THE UPPER DES MOINES hoped to be able to give a verbatim report of Mr. Ryan's remarks on tho desirability of a homo and its accessories, but he thinks that part should not be removed from the body of tho .address. The social union is preparing for an active winter. Monday saw about 460 students at the high school building and all the teachers ready to receive them, Yesterday all the classes were again being hoard in regular order. There are several changes among the teachers. Those of last year aro Miss Coate, Mrs. Horton, Miss Durant, Miss Farrell, Miss Maud Smith, Miss Campbell and Miss Cramer, with Miss Josie Pettlbone in charge of the depot school. In place of Miss Tweed the board last week chose Miss MoKittrick of Veragua, Wis., and she with Tena Wallace, Gertrude Clarke, and Louise McCoy are the new ones this term. The Sunday school quarterly issued at Boston by the Congregational church took for Its topic August 26, Christ's miracle of changing water to wine at Cana, and commenting on tho phrase "having drunk freely" said "so that they were a little under the influence of liquor and their taste had become slightly blunted;" and on the phrase " thou has't kept the good wine," said further "these words show beyond the possibility of question that tho wine which Jesus made was of the ordinary intoxicating kind and that it was of the best quality." Rev. Davidson, taking these statements from the official church publication, preached a sermon a week ago Sunday to show that the use of intoxicating wine at that feast was no argument for its use now, because conditions of life, climate, custom, etc., have materially changed, and that what was done then might or might not be commended now, according to conditions. THE UPPER DBS MOINES may'not be a judge in these matters, but it sees nothing in this to call for a bitter personal assault from a church member who presumably holds himself out as an illustration of the Christian spirit, and who presumably attends church for some other purpose than to misstate what he hears. If the statements about the wine at the feast of Cana don't suit, the quarrel is with the bible and with the Congregational church Sunday school editors. 6OT MI TBB til Iowa HftihfitWi i PofotftfiiUBefcMttii'' l'^ B&flcfbft Mas ft Badly Handted-An Official, About Loans.

Ho is sired by Ellerslie' 1 Wilkes, that is ono of the very best sons of the groat George Wilkes.

"Ilnpid Transit" Had a Cold. *' Humboldt's other fast horse was in the Chicago races but failed to go and curiosity has been aroused, The Humboldt Republican says: "A telegram, was received from J, J.

He would have undoubtedly got a place, had he started. The general prediction here is that ho can trot in 2:17 or near that time."
