NEWS OF THE NORTHWEST, Some of the Good ftesuits of Mutual tilSMatice as fold at the An* naal Meeting. How Doillvef Lost Mis Ovetca*t- West Bend Stilus—Miscellaneous Mows of the Week. The state convention of the Mutual Insurance association began a two days' session at the state house in Des Molnes last week Wednesday. This was the fourteenth annual meeting and the attendance was elghtyone, representing fifty-seven of the 134 county and district associations. The principal address was by the president, C. W. Norton* of Wilton. His statement of the business of the mutual farm com' panics is of interest: "The 13? mutual companies insuring against loss by fire, hail and wind are carrying risks in force January 1, 1894, of $125,749,680.58, and paid losses during the year of 8119,186.30, or a total. including officers and other expenses o that town without hating from si* to ten boodlers fttaofig them. Great is Sioux City when it comes to boodling or any large steals. They are fully as proficient in that Hue as Algona is in the blue sky note deal. Cloaks and Capes . ..AT . . Galbraith's. Having bought- A Job Lot $247,369.32— costing $1,97 to. insure $1," 000. The Farmers' Mutual Hail Association paid $7,000 in losses in 1893. The Iowa Mutual Wind and Cyclone Association paid $14,419.20 In losses in 1893, and will pay nearly double that amount of losses in 1894; and an assessment of 1 mill on a dollar, or $1 on $1,000 is all that will be required to meet the losses of 1894." Referring to our cyclone he said: "When at Cleveland, Ohio, on the morning of September 22, 1 read of your fearful tornado, entering the state at the western boundary and passing through eleven counties, said to be the longest uninterrupted cyclone of which there is any record, reaching over 250 miles, 150 of which was in Iowa, my first thought, was of our Iowa friends who are in our 'cyclone company, for they are thousands, and I hoped to hear that all were there, .for that was and is the object of the company— to benefit humanity at such a time as that, and the secretary's report will show that in that storm alone about. 100 of the sufferers who were so fortunate as to be insured in our company (which has $27,000,000 in risks) received $20,000, and that within twenty days, while those who were not thus insured were dependent upon charity. Yet they could have been insured in our cyclone company at the small cost of $1 per year on each $1,000. Oh, for more of that foresight put in practice." ' How Dolllver Lost Ilia Coat. J. P. Dolliver did not wear a bran new overcoat on his recent stumping tour. The reason is given by the Pocahontas Record: Jonathan P. Dolliver, whom our readers will remember as the man who was elected congressman from this dictrict by a small majority* of 9,000 at the recent election, purchased an elegant overcoat just before the campaign opened to wear in his stumping tour to show his constituents that he was saving enough out of his small salary to clothe himself decently. Now J. P. dreamed nights of the imposing appearance he would present when he got up with that overcoat on to address an audience and how he would speak about five minutes and then deliberately remove the same so the audience would be sure to notice the elegant garment, But his dreams were not to be realized for his brother "Vic." got his eye on the coat and when he started on ttsttkh The Courier said last week! "Watson Clark of Spirit Lake drew $1,250 in the Louisiana lottery.'* . The Beakon replies: As we Can get no local clue to the incident, and hone of out 1 folks seem to know such a man the Courier would appear to be mis* taken. . The Wolf Hunt Beaton Opens. Geo. Holloway has evidently gone back on the plans for securing wolves, which attained such celebrity a year ago. The Register says he has sent for Sam Squires' hounds and will soon open on the brutes that way up near Bancroft. What is the matter with a "ring" hunt? - Wants More Than n Monument. The Spirit Lake Beacon says: Mrs. Abble Gardner Sharp expects to spend a share of the winter in Washington in the endeavor to secure justice at the hands of congress through a measure which will reimburse her for the loss of her father's homestead on account of the Indian massacre of '57. The noire Murder Cnso. Judge Thomas is trying a case at Humboldt of curious interest. Two men had a quarrel at Rolfe last fall while threshing. One struck the other and jumped on him while he was down, and killed him. Wiley is the name of the man being tried. Cut on Unrb Wire.

Mr. Northway, of the firm of Will- lord & Northway of Minneapolis, came^ Monday to set the new mill machinery in operation in the Wilson mill, and show that aa good flour can be made in Algona as can be anywhere. A visit to the mill yesterday showed it in full operation. It is a 100-barrel mill, new from "turret to foundation stone," with the latest appliances for changing wheat to patent flour, baker's flour, shorts and bran.: In the process the wheat undergoes 48 separations, is rolled in a variety of rollers and sifted in a variety of sifters, and comes out graded as carefully as though the white at one end had never Been the brown at th« other, The wheat is first cleaned, then a special cookie seed cleaner takes it, then it te steamed and then heated, and then reaches the first roller. The building will be heated by steam throughout and a special boiler is being put in for that purpose, The old engine and boiler were found sufficiently sound after the fire to be used, and they furnish power for the mill and also for the two elevators, In speaking of the building and outfit Mr. Northway says it is very com* plete. There is no doubt that it is one of the best mills in the state, »nd its cost is put at $}5,QOQ. It is a great addition to Algona, and, considering Mr, Wilson's health, one fpr which he Js en» titled to m»oh credit, Wheat had already begun to pour in yesterday for grinding and business will soon be in ft Here Are Some Bargains We offer you this week: Men's all-wool Underwear, . . 50c Boys' all-wool Underwear, . . 50c/ : Men's Random Wool Underwear, 40o A Boys' Random Wool Underwear, S5c Men's Wool Hose, heavy, . . . i85c Children's Wool Hose, heavy,, . 15o; Berlin Lined Gloves, 106' These are broken lots and sizes that we wish to close/arid were good value at twice the money.
