It Is the 160 acres in .Union township on sections 21 and 22, known as the Anderson land to the land men, and as the big swamp to the ordinary travellers that way. It was entered on a Mexican soldier land warrant for Gen. Robt. Anderson, June 22, 1804. Gen. Anderson graduated at West Point in 1826, served in the Black Hawk war in 1832, was in the Florida war in 1838, and in the Mexican war, was severely wounded at Molino Del Hey. In Nov. 1800 he assumed command of Fort Moultrie, and on Deo. 22, moved to Fort Sumter, where he made the memorable opening fight of the war. „ At the close of the war he'had this land warrant and by a combination of circumstances it was located at the Fort Dodge office in Kossuth county, and by another combination of circumstances, chief of which must have been a jolly big drunk on the part of the government surveyors, it was located in about the only lake which has not dried up in all this dry season. In the government survey the land is reported as good tillable land. And so it happened that of all the magnificent country unoccupied in 1804 around Algona, Gen. Andei-son's bravery was rewarded with what ought to have been meandered as a lake. Gen. Anderson died in Europe in 1871. His widow, now over 80 years of age, and his daughters live in a comfortable home in Washington. Many Algonians have called on them at Major Holmes' request to explain why there has been no market for their land lying within four miles of Algona, but unless the others have had better success than THE UPPER DES MOINES man did, they have not succeeded in making them believe that the location in a pond was entirely accidental. Mr. Chubb paid Mrs. Anderson more for the quarter than has ever been offered for it, and now has a big ditcher at work opening a run way for the water. It will take a long deep ditch and then it is doubtful if perfect drainage is secured. -Now I am Moved and comfortably settled at my new stand on State street, and am better than ever prepared to meet the wants of those who contemplate buying anything in the line of FURNITURE. I now have lots of room to show goods and lots of goods for your inspection, which I cordially invite. Anything not in stock, will be ordered promptly. Come in.

Little Frank Paine met with a serious accident at Burt last week which the Monitor reports as follows: The boys were hauling baled hay with a horse and pulley up into the top of the bale barn, and were going to haul Frankie up to the top by letting him put his foot in the bale hook and holding on to the rope. As the horse started up his foot slipped out of the hook and it caught him underneath the left eye. It tore a narrow strip under the eye . about two-thirds the length of the eye, and the piece was left hanging. Drs. Beane ' and' Peters replaced the torn piece .ancLtook eight stitches In it. The ball of the eye was untouched by the hay 'h6bk,^a' narjrow and miraculous escape. "'Tli9 l '"!..lydund will heal, and with no ba4',|ifc|f ^h^'eye will escape uninjured.. .-, ., .,., v - ' A Gobbler Hatches a Brood, R. N, Pomeroy tells the Buffalo Center Tribune of the queer actions io.f a turkey gobbler on his farm the .past season. Some time along in the spring the gobbler began to show signs of wanting to sit upon-eggs, and tried his incubat- ive powers for some time upon cobble stones, bits of old iron,,jand other like substances, until Mrs, Pomeroy decided to gratify his ambition and gave him a setting of eggs, which he took, and in due time brought forth ft brood of fine, healthy chicks. This done, he seemed to consider his mission ended, and' left the youngters to shirk for themselves, while he returned to his original vocation of strutting and gobbling, Slagle saw a piece of patfIfled tfood in the mud, add on investigation found that it was about six feet long and one and a half in diameter. Ke brought pieces to Algona, and Capt. H, I. Smith of MasoH City has sent a large piece to the Aldrlch collection at Des Moines. The stone Is black and very hard, afid Is one of the largest and best petrifactions. The owner of the land got most of it, Itutnboldt'8 Fast Horses. Rapid Transit is homo from his eea* son's campaign. He has lowered his record from 2:28 to 2:l8i, and the Republican snys is the best campaigner in the county. All horsemen predict that he will trot below 2:14 next year. Vyzant, that fust horse from Bode, is at home from the season's campaign, and will not be put out again this fall. He has lowered his record from 2:40 to 2:17, and is the speediest horse in Humboldt County. STuIlUB Amos is Improving. Word comes from Missouri, where the young man who fell on the iron seat rod at Burt was taken, that there are good prospects for his recovery. Isaac'Ames went with him to • his brother's home. His brother is a physician and believes that Julius will get well and that he will not be disabled by the accident. Drowned In a Tank. A sad accident occurred in the home of Victor Gilbertson near Thor last week. The babe of the family, abright boy of two years, was playing near the water tank, and by some misstep fell in. The water was several feet deep, and before assistance arrived the little child had breathed its last. Smashed Ills Foot.
