"Ships That Pass in the Night" is Wring run as a serial in some of the papers. It is a pleasing little skit. Tittfrat i*r it. In the West Bend Journal we find - the following: "Our sister town, AlRona, has always been a very moral and temperate town, especially temperate, but they put up Wore •blue sky' business over there than any 6ther town In northwest Iowa, it looks to Us as though a delegation to Fort Madison for a stipulated time Would dear the city •of Some Of its atmospherical speculators to the great credit of the town." It is not with a desire to parade our short-comings before the public that We reproduce the item above, nor is it for the purpose of making denial of the truth of what it contains. On the other hand a proper reg-ard for the facts in the case compels the admission that there is more or less truth in the statement. Algona's good name has during a few years past been brought into disrepute by a lot of fellows who have been operating from this point, and the odium of "blue sky" has become attached to us simply on account of their residence here. It is no fault of the good citizens of -this town that this thing has been permitted. In fact we "believe their location here was chiefly due to the fact °of Algona's healthy moral atmosphere. They saw in it an opportunity to gull the unsuspecting, and the more easily by representing themselves as agents of an Algona enterprise. It was a.strong recommendation to say their "manufacturing" or their "supply" house was Io6ated here. Algona's known reputation for square -work was a means 1 of opening the door in most cases so wide that little trouble was found in taking in the average man whom tliey approached for that purpose. None regret this state of affairs more sincerely than do the honorable and upright peopled Algona who have an abiding interest in the welfare of our town, and who by their probity in commercial matters had gained for it an enviable reputation. None realize more fully than they the blighting effects of the •" blue sky" performances that have been carried on, either here or from this point. Nor has it been wholly the .fault of Algona's law-abiding citizens that these venders of" blue eky" have not been brought to justice. Whoever has studied their methods must have discovered that their contracts are shrewdly worded and gotten up first to deceive and latterly to permit the escape of the agent in case any fuss is made about it. The fact of this being so .makes it difficult to hold one of them, <even though he may have been guilty. This paper hopes the time is near at hand when the whole gang of operators in "blue sky" will be cleaned out, root and branch, and Algona left to again enjoy the splendid reputation which was inheritance up to the time 1 this nefarious business was begun among us. To do this may require some vigorous work on the part of its people, but, once they open fire on this despicable horde, we shall see them making tracks for tall timber at a rate of speed unequaled by any of their former efforts. That the earth "do move" is illustrated by the following from Burrell of the Washington Press i "When you ride behind a three-minute horse ym grab the seat and hold on for dear life, and the ' wind 1 nearly blows you away. But here We ride on the top of this nag called Earth, we forget how many miles a second, but the pace is break-neck, and there Isn't a zephyr. *he prodigious speed may thus be noted; Look east in the early dusk, you See Mars and the Pleiades, low down. Go out at 11 p. m., as Emerson -always did to see the stars, and they are overhead or abreast of us to the south. All that distance wo have gone, and yet not a hair in our bangs or mustaches has been blown. We are con • stantly riding at so furious a pace that all man-inspired motions on the earth, horses, express trains, balloons, rifle balls, etc., are ridiculous in comparison, and yet we do not realize it a bit. Only once in a while the thought of it comes to us so vividly it makes 0--V hair rise." Eli Perkins will lie to the people of Port Dodge on the 12th. They will have the heart-feltfsympathy of the entire state in their hours'Of affliction. Miller of the Livermore Gazette is not lying.awake nights because they had a quiet campnign in Humboldt county. Here is what .he said about it just before election: " Weihave not been favored with any political sbeeches here this year, which we consider a recognition of our intelligence in this.township. Our people know how they ought to vote without any instructions. 'They are no cattle. Any democrtfticon tell just why he is a democrat, if It'is only because his father was one before hhn. The republican can explain why he occupies that ground, and the populist can tell just what medicine is needed in his 'Own case and why he has so little company in this township.

Democrats as well fts republicans applauded vigorously, and said It Was Only turn about. At Carroll, Mr. Dolliver said, the Sentinel, the leading democratic paper of Western ioiva, gave the best long-hand report of his speech that had been niade this fall. -M- At another town in Cat-roll county Hon. Lafe Young spoke with Dollivor, closing the meeting with one of his characteristic speeches. Mr. Dolliver had taken occasion to pay a glowing tribute to the women of Iowa, incidentally saying a good word for the republican babies, of Which there were a score or more in the audience, Then when the versatile editor of the Capital got his inning he said there was something out of joint with a man who could eulogize the women and babies as Dolliver had and who persisted in remaining an old bachelor himself. Dolliver says he will even up with Lafe for that some other day. •<m- By way of illustration Mr. Dolliver told the story about Alf. Nicholson of Estherville, a democrat of democrats, an old soldier, and an applicant for a pension. He had furnished proof of his disabilities until the matter had become a bore, and fina-My ho received a letter from Secretary Hoke Smith' asking whether or not his disabilities were in any way the result of his own vicious habits. This was the straw Ithat broke the camel's back, and Alf. at once indited a reply to the secretary which ran as follows: "My Dear Hoke—I never had but one vi<iious habit—that of voting the democratic ticket; andlarn entirely cured." df which is appropriate to Thanksgiving day.

An article graces the pages of the November Midland Monthly entitled "A the Early Life of James Russell Lowell," by Hon. J. P. Dolliver. It is thoughtful and scholarly, and belongs to a class of work which would place Mr. Dolliver in'the front rank of literary writers. Those who admire our congressman for his platform abilities cannot fall to find interest in his writings. THE MONTH'S MAGAZINES. The Century for November signalizes the opening of its twenty-fifth year by the beginning of one of its most important enterprises, the Life of Napoleon, by William M. Sloane, professor of history at Princeton college. It is believed that the time has come to motke a new and unprejudiced review of the 'facts of Napoleon's life in the light of the documents now accessible and the memoirs of which the last twenty years have been so prolific. The first chapters deal with Napoleon's childhood and youth including the Corsican period and his school days in France, and in this period the history (has the value of a unique ful- ness. Mudh care has been bestowed in :«he' selection off illustrations from the largo amount of -accessible material, and the iin- stalment is rich in portraits, in pictures .of places, and in carefully drawn views «of typical scenes in Napoleon's life. Among the illustrations are a hitherto unpublished portrait of Napoleon at sixteen, drawn by a school fellow, and a facsimile of the last page of his exercise-book at school, containing a curious reference to St. Helena The Iowa Capital, weekly, is now an eight-page, seven-column paper, and furnishes ,an abundance of entertaining reading in .addition to all the news of the week.

One of the leading features of St. Nicholas for the coming year begins in the November .'number, "A Boy of the First Empire," by Elbridge S. Brooks. It is a romance of the days of Napoleon, in which the great Emperor himself figures. The According to the president's proclamation we should give thanks on Thursday, Nov. 29. SOME ODDS AND ENDS. THE CZAR IS DEAD. After a long and lingering illness Alexander III., the czar of all the Rus- sias, died last week Thursday. This result has for some weeks been anticipated, and daily bulletins from his bed- jslde have indicated that his lease of life was short at best. There is said to be an ancient prophecy that none of the blood of the Ro- manoffs should live to be past 65 years ft! age, and that prophecy seems in the way of fulfilment.. The dead czar as- •cended the throne after the assassination of bis father by the Nihilists in 1881. The coronation did not occur until about two years later. His name Jiae become familiar among the reading people of the world chiefly for the despotic manner in which he has administered the, affairs of government, The noted traveler and writer, Keni»an, has pictured scenes of oppression Jn Siberia, the direct result of the ,.,<5j&ar's cruel and Inhuman orders, which, .'eyerjiftbe half he told be true, is enough to condemn any administration for &U time. These accounts may have Ibeeji exaggerated, and later advices point to the fact of this being so, Jn event they were bad enough, and memory of them will not be effaced the colonies so Jong as the family fupviyes.. Qneofthelftst official acts pf the now dead autocrat was the (Ppnsjgnmentof sixty-five wen and worn* «»tp %<? mines, most of them for life. V Ja jm$y respects Jiie reign Jtes been of brutality Hon. J. P. Dolliver spent Friday with friends in Algona. He was to speak at Garner that night, so he had the entire day here, which he utilized in getting recuperated from the fatigue of campaign work. He has been on the stump continuously during the past forty days, making two speeches nearly every day, and he was getting along to the point where a little rest was required. He spoke at Bancroft Thursday afternoon, where, .the Register says, he had a house packed full and gave them a splendid speech, As illustrating in some degree the vigor in the Dolliver blood our congressman told how his father, who is 78 years old, went to Des Moines two weeks ago to hear McKinley. Arriving there he was jammed and jostled about all day in the immense crowd, heard the speech, attended the banquet which lasted until 3 o'clock in the morning, and then rode home during the balance of the night, at the end of which ho declared he had never enjoyed a trip more In his life. He will do to go with a former proprietor of TIIB UPREK DES MOINES, now hero is a street boy who renders a service to Napoleon and is made one of his page 0 and finally an aide. He is with him at the most critical times of his ! life, and eventually takes part at Waterloo. Mr. Brooks has made careful study of French history of the time. The story opens briskly and is profusely illustrated by H, A. Ogden Prof. Brander Matthews has a sympathetic critical sketch of Bryant, in his American Authors series. A rattling foot-ball story is "The Generous Side," by A T Dudley, while Myron B. Gibson relates aii exciting bicycle adventure in "Against Time and Time." +4*-+ The ever-pressing problem, How can reforms be effected in the government of American icitics? :Js ably considered by H. C. Merwm in ithe November Atlantic Monthly, in a paper entitled "Tammany Points the Way," wherein he urges that the same agencies—efficient organization and leadership—which have assisted Tammany tO'3o evil, might be generally helpful in a -good cause. Geo.. Birkbec'k Hill the editor of the Life of Johnson, reviews, in a very readable fashion, some of "Boswell's Proof-Sheets,» which are now in the unrivaled collection of Johnsoniana belonging to R. B. Adam of Buffalo, "Recinald Pole," by H. W. Preston and Louise JJodge, is an exceedingly interesting study Of one of the most notable personages o'f the England of Henry VIII. William Everett discusses "Hadrian's Ode to His Soul," and offers a new translation. Laf- cadio Hearn shows some curious phases of Japanese life in passages " From My Japanese Diary," and J. W. Ludlovv speaks from an English standpoint of ''The Growth of American Influence over Entr- land," visiting on the coast at the time of catastrophe. On last Sunday, when the sheriff of Jackson county, Mitraesotn, went to serve breakfast to three prisoners he had in jail they attacked and overpowered him and crushed in his skull with some kind of an Iron weight. The prisoners escaped and are still at large. $300 reward is offered for their capture. At last accounts the sherilf was not expected to live. Emmetsburg Reporter: The members of Co. K. who were at Algona lost week are loud in their praise of the Algona boys. Everything was free and each member of Co. F. vied with the other in making the boys feel at home. The Algona people in general are noted for their hospitality and the boys were only keeping up the reputation of the city. If you want to be used in a royal manner just go to Algona. At the Taft & Co. sale of Poland China hogs last week the Republican says that 85 were sold, 15 of which were over ;a year old and the balance spring pigs, being farrowed from April to July. The general average of price was $24. Many of the other pigs would uyerage over'200 pounds. A large number were bought by breeders from Ohio, Indiana, Kansas and Nebraska. The universal expression of breeders was that they were a very superior lot of hogs. Spirit Lake Herald: The large dairy barn-on the Stevens farm is completed and'is probably one of the finest in this part of the state, being fitted up with patent stalls and all the modern improvements. Mr. Stevens will put upwards of a^hundred cows on his farm and engage extensively in the dairy business. 'There is no good reason why it should not pay as well or better than in eastern states where the cows are kept on hind worth $100 per acre and feed is shipped from the western states. Win. Welch, a carpenter of Emmetsburg, met with a serious accident last Friday. He was engaged at work -on the barn of John MoCormick, about five miles southeast of town, and in some manner lost his footing and fell to the ground beneath, a distance of about 25 feet. As be was falling bis foot caught on a timbrr in some manner and it served to break the force of his fall considerably. As it was he sustained severe injuries in the back and the bones in the instep of his foot were broken. The first report of Frank E. Allen, receiver of the American Investment company of Emmetsburg, Iowa, was filed in the United States court Wednesday. The report covers the time between June 26 and Sept. 30, 1894. The claims filed aggregate $99,263; total receipts, $23,969; disbursments, $18,455; cash on hand, $5,494. Of the company's hypothecated securities he paid off $170,751, either by collecting loans and remitting them or by exchanging or otherwise settling with the holders. The matter is set for bearing at Fort Dodge, Nov. 13. THIS WON'T PLEASE GROVER # Election Returns This Morning Show Sweeping Republican Vic* tories All Along the Litte—^Ne\v York State Comes Up Smiling with 150,000 Majority, Iowa Has Perhaps 50,000 Kepublicaa Majority, and Elects fen Bepublicatt Congressman, and Perhaps Eleven-Kossuth County in the Swim With a Largely Invreased Republican Majority, There is small comfort for democrats today over the returns from yuterday's election. Everything in the north so far as heard from seems to have gone republican by largely Increased majorities. It is a most sweeping victory and a stinging rebuke for the democratic administration. The great battle ground, upon which all eyes were centered, was New York state, which, according to reports this morning, gives Morton (rep.) for governor from 100,000 to 160,000 majority over Hill, (dem.) In New York city Strong (rep.) has a majority over Grant (dem.) of from 25,000 to 40,000. Pennsylvania is in line with a large republican majority. Illinois seems to have been redeemed by the republicans, and the majority mny reach 60,000. In Iowa, as nearly as can bo shown by the meager returns, the republican majority will run from 45,000 to 60,000, and ten congressmen are surely elected, with the possibility of the success of Curtis (rep.) over Hayes (dem.) In the Second district. In the Tenth congressional district Dolliver's majority will be largely increased over that of two years ago, but at this writing it is not easy to say just what the figures are. KOSSUTII COUNTY'S VOTE. It Will Sliow a. Jviu'Kely Increased Kepubllcau Majority, and the Election of Every HepubJIcaii on the Ticket. The returns from Kossuth county, so far -as they are in at the time of going to press, indicate the election of all the republican condidates by a majority of about 550, which is also the approximate vote on state officers. The only exception on the county ticket is that of Calkins, who is scratched pephaps 150 votes in the county, yet his majority will be in the neighborhood of 400. This is an increase in the majority over last year of something like 150. The figures below show the vote by townships as far as they have been reeeive_d. The jail tax and supervisor questions were all knocked higher that Gilderoy's kite—out of sight. THE VOTE BY TOWNSHIPS.

A gentleman in New York who had a 4,000 acre wheat farm in Dakota says: " My cost for growing wheat is so great that I barely get out whole.
