MM. Me Was 6 Pioti&t ift tfossuth, doftiittg to this County in 1856—We Mourn a Good Man Gone. The sudden death of Horace Schenck Wednesday morning of last week adds another to the list of storm victims arid removes one of the little band who came to Kossuth in 1856. Mr. Schenck had been visiting in Wisconsin and had gone then to Kansas and Nebraska and had arrived at home the day before the storm. When the house was blown away he was caught beneath a heavy timber, but beyond some severe bruises had'apparently suffered no serious injuries. Under the doctor's care he was rapidly improving at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Cyrus D. Ward, until last Wednesday morning when his sons granted his request to sit up and helped him to dress. They went to, their work leaving him reading. He was feeling utiusually well and declined several suggestions to lie down again. But suddenly when no one was present but Mrs. Ward's little girl. he said " Oh dear," which was a favorite expression when in pain, and staggered to the bed. Mrs. Ward was down in an instant and Mr. Ward came in at once. Mr. Schenck spoke to Mr, Ward and was dead. It is thought that the unusual exertion of sitting up and reading had overtaxed the heart. Mr. Schenck's family was the first to locate north of Algona west of the Des Motnes river. This was on June4,1856, and they took the claim on the Black Cat, where they have ever since lived. It was for some time the frontier post to the northwest. Mr. Schenck was born in Oswego county, N. Y., Feb. 12. 1822, and lived there until 1849, when he moved to Wisconsin, and afterwards to Cook county, 111. June 1, 1845, he was married to Elizabeth Orvis, whose death, April 6, 1889, preceded his by five years. Seven children survive, Mrs. Winters, Mrs. C. D. Ward, and Myron in Kossuth county, Mrs. Jason Dunton, Mrs. Geo. Dunton, and George in Kansas, and Silas in Lincoln, Neb. Mr. and Mrs. Schenck were both noted for the cordial hospitality their home • afforded in early days, and for their activity .in all good works. -In war . time Mrs. Schenck was one of the leaders in the movement which won the sanitary flag for the county, and in 1864 Mr. Sohenok enlisted in Company.- F. 2nd Iowa cavalry, with John Fill, Henry Patterson, W. B. Carey and Chas. Mohl, and served till the end of the war, participating in the battle of Nashville. Mr. Schenck was a great reader and an earnest student of public questions. •He was a f ree.soiler and an abolitionist until the republican party began, and was one of that band all over the United States known as Greeleyites. He read the New York Tribune, and voted for Greeley in 1872, although disapproving of his candidacy. In later years he became a populist, and it was his desire to take part in the campaign in this county this fall that brought him home in time to be caught in the storm. In answer to his son's request to visit longer in Lincoln he said that he must get back to perform some duties which fell to him in the campaign. He was a cousin of Gen. Robt. Schenck, so well known in the diplomatic history of the country, a man of excellent abilities and of a firmness which knew no yielding. His life as a pioneer was not as eventful as many. He remained pretty closely at home. But he could tell very interesting anecdotes of the early days. Not long ago THE UPPER DES MOINES published two, one of the famous well in the snow where the Tuttle whiskey barrel stood in 1856, and one of the rescuing of the Johnson family out near Armstrong, both of which he t9ld with a dry humor which made them extremely entertaining to the auditor. On that occasion he was seated in his home surrounded by a band of neighbors, and in a happy mood sug- ge^tive of a well preserved body and mind promising many happy years of life to come. His sudden death will he mourned by all. And it will be mourned especially by those whose minds are recalled again, as nothing hut the death of one of thnm can recall, to the trials, the hardships, the social enjoyments, the hardy life, the hearty good cheer, and the earnest aspirations and ambitions of their early years which make up the history of the beginning of Kossuth county. Mr, Sohenok's funeral was held at the home of Cyrus D. Ward Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock, the Grand Army post attending in a body. Key, W. E. Davidson conducted the services. A long procession followed the remains to the Algona cemetery, where they now lie buried.

A #3,000 Outfit In the Water Mill Doubles Its Capacity and Guarantees a High Grade Flour—The Mill Now Running. The extensive improvements at Jones & Stacey's mill were completed last week and Algona is now prepared to make as good flour as is turned out anywhere. The capacity of the mill has been doubled, $3,000 has been expended in the ^refitting, and every facility has been added that is used in the big mills. Among the new features is the steamer through which all the wheat passes before it goes to the rollers. Grinding dry wheat makes the bran so fine that it sifts into the flour and darkens it. Steaming stops this and gives flaky bran. New double rolls take the place of the old burrs for grinding the rnidlings, new cleaners are in for the grain, and the spouting and arrangement of the mill is all new. But trTe chief new feature is the machine which sifts the flour, called the Plansifter. Instead of the old revolving bolter, this is a flat box like a wagon bed, oscillating rapidly, and sifting the ground wheat through a great many cloth and wire-screens and leaving it nt last divided off into all the various grades from the patent flour to coarse bran. It is one of the most scientific milling machines and will turn out as fine, flour as any machine made. A curious thing about the Plainsifter is the method adopted to keep the screens clean. This is. done by putting in locust seeds which rattle and roll about and do the business. A new engine house of brick is part of the new improvement. Now that it has been made we can buy a guaranteed home flour equal to anything shipped in, for this year Kossuth wheat ranks with the best. HAPPILY MABRIED. Several.Young Couple Set Sail on the Sea of Life TJnder Very Favorable Auspices. A few friends gathered at the home of Mr. and Mrs. J as. A. Orr Thursday evening to ;< witness the marriage of their daughter, Nellie E.;rf to Martin Lurth of St^jjPeter, Minn. Rev. Davidson performed the ceremony and a fine wedding banquet was served a very liberal selection from which found its way to THE UPPER DES MOINES office Friday morning. The happy couple went at once to St. Peter, where they will make their future home, taking with them a host of good wishes. CARLON-BROOKS. At 2 o'clock Thursday at the Methodist parsonage Rev. Bagnell united Wm. Carlon and 1 Miss Estella Brooks in marriage. Both belong to old and well known families in the county, Miss Brooks being one of the most successful teachers on Supt. Reed's list, and Mr. Carlon owning one of the best farms in Sherman township. All who know them will join in wishing them a happy journey through life. AN OLD TIME ALGONA GIRL MARRIED. Cards have been received announcing the recent marriage of Miss Vira Lamb, youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. S. Lamb, to Mr. Tread way. Their home is in western Nebraska. Court opened last week Tuesday, and Judge Carr began at once hearing the evidence and arguments in the case against the Minneapolis railway company for killing a brakeman named Gorman at LuVerne. The case was tried several years ago and appealed to the supreme court, v/here it was sent back. Gorman's father, who was executor of the estate and the plaintiff in the case, died. Mrs, Gorman applied to be made executrix in his place, but the clerk at Fort Dodge made a mistake and made her executrix of her husband's estate instend of her son's. She came to Algona and the second trial was begun, she being substituted as plaintiff. The company did not appear and a verdict of $8,000 was secured. The year of appeal went by and the company never fonnd out that anything had been done until all their rights were gone. They then came to Judge Carr and asked to have the judgment set aside on the ground that they' had watched the books at Fort Dodge and that as no new executor had been appointed they had been led to believe that the suit had been dropped. This was resisted on the ground that the return of the case for new trial by the supreme court was sufficient notice to them to watch further proceedings in the lower court. The mistake of the clerk in not getting Mrs. Gorman properly appointed turned the ease, and Judge Carr set aside the judgment and ordered a new trial on its merits. R. M. Wright of Fort Dodge represented the company, and Geo. E. Clarke and W. B. Quarton the Gorman side. SOME CRIMINAL MATTERS. In the case of Aug. Grimmens for setting fire in Irvington a fine of $25 and costs was assessed on a plea of guilty. The case against J. L. Button for cheating was continued. J. J. Knoer was tried for obtaining goods under false pretenses, but the case was taken away from the jury on account of a failure' to prove that he ever got the goods. The Dubuquo merchant who sold them was only able to swear that his drayman took them, but not that they were delivered to the railway company. J. W. Sullivan and Judge Cook defended Knoer. An attempt was made to indict Robt. Buckly and Jos. A. Johnson for taking an engine that they were having repaired at Richardson's foundry and going to Hancock with it. The jury let them go. Mat. McDermott was up for threatening to kill, but no one appeared to prosecute and he was discharged. THE WARD INJURY CASE. _ After some important matters were disposed of the jury was impanneled yesterday to try the case of Mrs. Arthur Ward against her late husband for |3,000 damages for injuries inflicted on her by him. The case will be finished today. A. C. Ripley appears for Ward and Clarke & Cohenour for Mrs. Ward. She had toot seeti In SSyears. f Bey ftrM Mf. find Mfa. Thos.
