Then he hired a livery rig and drove up to Lotts Creek and wanted an opening order there of five tubs. Sere he told a different story, both as to location in Chicago and us to his business. Mr. Ranney intended to give him a trial of five tubs, but had 16 tubs when the time came and sent them. Church drove west to neighboring creameries in Palo Alto, but if he got orders it is not known. On his return to Whittemore he told the liveryman that he was a little short of cash and would send his bill from Chicago. He told the samo story to the landlady. Then he played pool all the afternoon, putting up some four dollars, and left the county. Nothing has since been heard of Church nor of the $400 which the butter was worth he got from the two creameries. Investigation has since been made and it is found that this is a regular gome he has played all over the country, generally getting a small shipment not worth fighting over. But in Kossuth he got too big a haul and the creameries are after him. 'Squire Raymond made out requisition papers Monday, and if the governor signs them Mr. Church will find an end put to his career as a creamery swindler. _ Wanted for Swindling at Hurt. Sheriff Samson went to Boone Monday for W. T. Jenkins, a denizen of that city. Jenkins came to Burt a short time ago and represented that he was well off and buying hay, and being acquainted with Burt people who remembered him to be in good financial circumstances he got five carloads from Stephen Nicholson and Den. Paine. It turns out that while Jenkins was once all right, owing to a pinch in the horse market he is now not worth a dollar, and the money for the hay is not forthcoming. Jenkins comes from a substantial family and has made himself liable to go to the penitentiary. It is likely that his friends will get him out of the scrape and that the hay money will be paid. _ Larceny at Whittemore. Friday two vagrants named E. R. Merane and Jos. J. Burns went into John Goeders' store at Whittemore and while John Cullen was in the rear end one took a suit of clothes and went out. The loss waa noticed and the pair were arrested and the suit recovered. For larceny and drunkenness Mayor Boyle sentenced them to 30 days in the county jail at hard labor, and .they are now with us. Two others, Robt. Moore and Thos. Jones, were caught next day stealing an overcoat from Arthur Carlisle, and sentenced by the mayor to 15 days, and they also are here. All belong to the samo gang. Marshal Dailey will give them a job covering water mains while they live on county provisions. Notice.

E. Clarke. When the cyclone went through the county the wind was hard enough as far 'north as Gotlleb Bohn's to blow down the snow fence along the Northwestern track. This had been connected at each end with the regular stock fence and was made to do double duty by the road. When it was blown down it let four horses out of the Bonn pasture on the truck and the train killed them all. Mr. Bonn wrote to the company, but they replied that they were not liable under such circumstances. Now Mr. Bohn begins suit on the theory that the snow fence, which is much more liable to be blown down than the wire fence, was not a proper and legal fence on the right-of-way, and that the company is liable. It will be a curious case and .will raise the question of what is a sufficient fence to relieve a railway of a claim of damages for stock that get out and are killed on the track. A $10,000 Dnmaee Case. Attorney Ranck of Iowa City was in Algona Monday and with J. W. Sullivan and Geo. E. Clarke went to Fort Dodge in the afternoon. The big damage case against the Milwaukee company from Whittemore comes on this week and will undoubtedly be tried. The case is brought for the death of Chris Kohen, who was killed a few years ago by the snow plow while working on the track. Mr. Sullivan and Ranck & Wade of Iowa City will prosecute while John N. Baldwin of Council Bluffs, and M. D. O'Connell of Fort Dodge, are with the counsel for the company. As soon as the day for trial is set the witnesses will besubpcenaed, and probably a large number of people from Whittemore will be called. It is a big case and will be fought for all there is in it. Ttoe Thompson Injury Case. Immediately after the Whittemore case the case of Jos. Thompson against the Milwaukee for $10,850 is set for bearing. Sullivan, Ranck & Wade appear for Mr. Thompson, and Mr. Clarke will be assisted by M. D. O'Connell for the company, It is difficult to tell when the trial will be reached, but when it is about 50 Algonians will be called to Fort Dodge as witnesses. The $350 claim is for the team, and the $10,000 is for Mr. Thompson's very serious and permanent injuries. The chief question is whether the engineer pulled the whistle as he came near the crossing. To Collect WlilBltoy Suit Pines, County Attorney Raymond has begun a suit in the district court to subject the property of the Whittemore whiskey sellers, who were caught last spring, to the payment of the fines assessed against them. It is said that they will fight. There is some f 1,400 at stake, and it ought to go into the public funds. First-class Horse Shoeing.

Smith of the Webster City Journal was an Algona visitor recently, and he says of Algona; "We found many improvements in Algona since our last visit about a year ago, and the town seems to be growing nicely and adding much to its general appearance, It is one of the most sightly towns in Iowa, and its people have a thrifty, go- ahead spirit. They have recently sunk a new well for have recently their waterworks system, and are putting in a large amount of pew mains with a view of eventually placing the system upon a paying or self-supporting basis, and we know their hopes will be realized. The, Algpna that we first knew in 1665 as a very meagre frontier hamlet Is now rightly counted as one of the best in' land toWBsinaUIowa."
