The Cherokee Democrat says that a number of officials of the Illinois Gen* tral made a trip over the road to Sioux City. One of the directors along with the party was John Jacob Astor IV. who 18 a young Englishman of perhaps 30 years, and a mechanical genius of considerable ability. He has always been interested in machinery and Is an expert in several lines. When the train reached Cherokee he announced that he wanted to take the train into Sioux City, and as the party agreed he went to the engine, seated Himself upon the engineer's box and with the air of a man who knew exactly what he was about and was perfectly confident of his ability to do what he had attempted took charge of the engine and ran into Sioux City. The .train was making fast time, which he maintained, and in spite of the fact that he was at a great disadvantage in not knowing the rond understanding the grades, curves, etc., he handled the train as smoothly as an engineer could have done who had run over the road for ten years. Webster City Has Them, Too. The low-bread wretches are not all in Algona, us witness the following from the Webater ;,City Journal: A young lady, while returning to her home in the west part of the city one night last week, was overtaken and insultingly accosted by a scoundrel in human shape. She shook him off and passed on. Tho pimp cut across the court house yard and again headed her off with base insinuations, but she hurried on and gained a house where she took refuge from the villian. It was one of Webster City'a young brutes that did this, and it was too bad that the young lady did not have a pistol and given him the contents. Toll you what we'll do, girls, if you will get up a class we'll teach you how to shoot, and shoot to kill, and when one of those scoundrels stops you'on the street and insults you, kill him on the spot. Assessed the Drug Stores. Two Spirit Lake drug stores seem to come within the purview of the mulct law, and the assessor has put them "on the list," as witness the following: The verdict of the jury in the Brownell case, in which there was clear evidence of the illegal sale of liquor, aroused the indignation of all good citizens who have been patient and long suffering from the noted illegal sales of intoxicating liquors. The fact of the defendant not having a permit to sell on the premises where he has done business nearly two years, coming to the knowledge of the judge in this trial has caused a determined effort to, if possible, put a stop to further illegal selling in this city. The assessor has assessed the drug stores of E. L. Brownell and E. C. Benkin under the mulct law, neither of them holding legal permits. Fort Docile Man Crazy. Albert Larson, an insane man of Badger, held at bay all of Tuesday night the sheriff and his deputies while they were trying to effect his capture. He was breaking everything in the house and threatening to kill the family. When he saw the sheriff ebbing he retreated to the garret with a revolver and plenty of ammunition, and swore he would kill anyone who approached bim,.empbasizing the threat by occasionally firing through the floor. Toward morning he quieted down and seemed to have a rational spell, during which the officer persuaded him to come down and give himself up. He was taken to Independence hospital for treatment. Failed to rile Their Papers, Cedar Jlapids special: When the official ballot was received from the secretary of state by the county auditor for printing, it was found that the names of the democratic candidates for district judges were omitted. Upon inquiry it was discovered that the democratic committee had failed to file cer» tificates of nomination with the secretary of state. This leaves the democrats of this judicial district without candidates. , BUCKWHEAT flour. Langdon & Hudson. , cordance with the law the ballot la also published this Week in two papers in the county, and this will also afford people an opportunity to investigate It to their hearts' content.
