Storm Lake Said to Be Going Dry— Judge Qaarton Perfeeti-ates a Joke oh Himselfi A Justice of the Peace Who is Getting Very Mad—Miscellaneous Notes of the Week. Latest things It Is rumored that the water In Storm lake is gradually getting lower as the days go by and no rain comes, says the Pocahoutas Record. There is now hardly enough water to float the fish, and the boys had great sport in catching thorn with their hands until the people feared that should they continue to do so there wonld be no fish left and one of the attractions would be gone, so the city council passed an ordinance forbidding the taking of any more fish. It is amusing to sit on the banks of the lake and see the thousands of fish' fins protruding from the water, it not being deep enough for thorn to get out of sight. The water supply for the town is now being taken out of wells so that the lake will not totally disappear. The facts in the case are that this beautiful lake has been supplied by springs, but owing to the dry weather these springs have become so dry that the only water that has run into the kike was from the little showers we have been having during the past two months. It is to bo hoped that the lake will not totally disappear, for it has been one of the handsomest hikes in northwest Iowa. out. It is claimed that is was set on fire oh the surface by sparks from a railroad engine, and it is reported that the owners of the land will commence suit for damages. Death of FrftUk Cliurch. Frank Church, general superintendent of the United States Express company for Iowa, was instantly killed Tuesday while attempting to board a Burlington train at Garrison. He was a good business man and popular wherever known. Mr. Church was well known in Algona, where during many years past ho has been a frequent visitor. Fire nt Swon OHy. The Journal says the drug store belonging to E. M. Ryan & Co., and grocery and restaurant of Peter Sovertson at Swea City, wore burned to the ground about 4 o'clock Wednesday morning. There was about $800 insurance on the drug store, but none on the grocery. It is supposed to be the work of an incendiary. i We can supply your wants by the barrel or bushel.

In heating stoves The Oak Garland for 1894 takes the lead; closes tighter and keeps fire longer than any other stove. I also have abhut twenty-five Second-hand Stoves, Judge Quarton Objected. Judge Quarton is the victim of a pretty good joke .which ho perpetrated on himself last week at Spirit Lako. The Beacon tells how it happened: A little innocent break on the part of Judge Quarton made a good deal of fun for the boys on Wednesday. A witness was undergoing a tedious examination. Objections were frequently interposed by vigilant counsel, but withal the proceedings were of the humdrum order. Finally a question was asked which brought from his honor an "Object! Immaterial!" and then the boys laughed and the court apologized for a moment of forgelfulness in which he imagined he was yet in practice., Less than a week previously the judge had abandoned a flourishing practice to don the ermine, and it is not strange that the old habit should have asserted itself. "The Court" is Getting Mad. A justice of the peace and crank wrote the following letter to the Cedar Rapids Gazette: Editor Gazett—since readiding Eosewaters contempt case in the Omaha bee I have got onto a new idea of law and I though it would only be fair to warn you not to call me crank any more before I put the new law in force on you. you see I am judge of the justice court of Burtram and if you call me crank any more I will ishue an order and arrest you for very cheap— from $2 up. stock over, Please call and look my J. W. ROBINSON. SEE BROWNELL contempt of court you may think this a threatening letter and have me arrested for sending it through the mail but when you reflect that I am the court and you cannot arrest the court you will change your mind and quit calling the court a crank. ELIAS DOTY, Would Scare the Preacher. Over at Sioux Rapids they have had a case of body snatching, says the Fort Dodge Times. The pastor of the Methodist church, Rev. J. W. Walker, spoke boldly denouncing the crime, when he was told: "You bad better go home and shut your mouth or pack your goods and leave town if you are going to talk about that Radabaugh matter." Hoskins, the editor of the Republican, ranges himself on the side of Elder Walker. With two such fearless men as Walker and Hoskins arrayed against a crime the probabilities are that there will not be very much packing done—at least not by the preacher, Mrs. E, B. Campbell Injured. The Armstrong Journal says that Mrs. E. B. Campbell met with quite a serious accident while at Sioux City last week attending the inter-state fair. She started to go Into the bath room at the hotel where she and her Sale of the Minneapolis t fe St. Louis Jlallroad r,nst Weak Involved n Xitu'KO Money Transaction. One of the largest transactions in railroad' matters that has lately o*c- currcd was the sale last week of the Minneapalis rn.ilway,, the facts concerning which tiro given in un extract from the Chicago Tribune of recent date : The Minneapolis & St. Louis road was sold under foreclosure proceedings at Minneapolis yesterday. It was bid in by a syndicate of stockholders, formed for this purpose, for §4,000,000, the face of the senior mortgage with accrued charges. Thoro was no other bid and tho property knocked down without ado. The stockholders' committee also bought tho equipment and improvements lor $450,000 without opposition, making the total amount of cash necessary to close up the transac- action n trifle over $5,000,000. L. W. Bull of New York, representing Chairman Olcott of the stockholders'com- mittee, made the bid. A check duly certified for $86,000 was dep6sited with the sheriff as guaranty raoney, ; and tho entire sum will be paid over 'to Henry Soibert, trustee, at once, at one of the local banks. A meeting to perfect tho organization will be hold to-morrow, and it is expected that the present corps of officials will bo retained, though that is not definitely settled. The Rock Island holds a little over $3,000,000 of tho bonds of the company and for this reason it was believed that it would bid in tho property and make it a part of the Rock Island system. The bondholders' committee, it is understood, will redeem the bonds now held by the Rock Island and operate the roajl independently. The purchasers, however, are said to be friendly to Rock Island interests and will enter into a close traffic arrangement with the Rock Island, enabling the latter to keep up its " Albert Lea" Route to St. Paul as heretofore.
