Booth ia Omaha last week. The rise Md influence of this remarkable man is One of the marvels of modern times. It Wfti less than thirty years ago that he began to seriously consider how to , reach the vice and crime of London, < The first meeting of his Salvation Army followed and was attended by three people. Today, according to his own statement, "there are forty countries where the work is carried on, and in these are 11,000 officers and 2,000,000 soldiers. There are twenty-^our newspapers printed in fifteen different Ian' guages, with a total circulation of 50,000,000 a year." Less than thirty years ago the whole movement was tabooed hy the church and ridiculed by the public. And now Gen. Booth is received in every city in this country with honors scarcely less than would be paid to Gladstone, and greater than would be paid to any other Englishman. While Gen. Booth was being given the freedom of the city of St. Paul another enthusiastic gathering met in New York to' do honor to Dr. Parkhurst. The doctor is a cool, vigorous, sturdy Presbyterian minister of New York, who has the acumen, fight, and stick-to-it-iveness of a good lawyer. Two years ago he gave the police management of the city a raking over in the pulpit. A Tammany grand jury Indicted him for libel. That roused the Scotch in him, but instead of spending more breath in pulpit talk he donned his old clothes and went out to hunt for legal evidence. And when the now famous Lexow, committee came to New York to investigate, the preacher was loaded and primed. And what he had ' not found out the lawyer of the committee, Goff, did find out, and so New York has had the greatest scouring out of rascality since the Tweed ring was broken. All the great leaders met last Wednesday to do honor to Dr. Parkhurst. They praised him till his head might well be turned, Bishop Potter, the Episcopalian, joining with Father Ducey, the Catholic, who said: "I thank Dr. Parkhurstfor the example he has set the clergy. I feel convinced that Jesus Christ has blessed his work. He has followed Jesus Christ, and though he be a heretic, I am prepared to follow him." •Carlyle believed that it it was great men who alone move the world. Hero worship was what he wanted to make into a public observance., Such men as Gen. Booth and Dr. Parkhurst at least give color to this theory of social progress. . THE NEW CONGRESS. The old congress has met in final session, that is, as many members have met as feel under obligations to fill out their terms. It is not expected that anything will be done except to pass appropriation 'bills, although a free sil- , . ver coinage,bill may get as far as the president...;. The new congress will convene in.a. yeac and until that time no . important legislation is likely to be undertaken,' A few of the items of the ' official canvass are of interest. They show the character of the political avalanche the country has witnessed: The republicans have solid delegations from 19 states. .The democrats have only 13members from the northern states. The republicans have more than two- thirds of the. house. The final list is {344.republicans, 104 democrats, 7 scattering. -~ v -"'•-* The republicans have 32 members - from the southern states. There may be 28 contests from the ' southern states, chiefly by republicans. The democrats have six solid, delega- , tions,—Alabama, Florida, Georgia, ' Jjpuisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina, The northern democrats are distributed as fpllpws: California and "• Massachusetts, one each; Illinois, Ohio and Pennsylvania, two each, and New York five, The epJid republican states are: Con- jnecticut, Delaware, Idaho, Indiana, Jpwa, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Mpnta0a, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Nprtfc Dakota, Qregpn,, Rhode Island, '.'.SJPrHljl) P&kptav YerrooHt, - 'Wept Virginia and, Wisconsin H, A.

He's a stinny-natured, whole-souled man, and is just the person to demonstrate that the executive of Iowa can maintain himself creditably on the present allowance." The imagination constructs not only the palace but also the tomb. It leads us into the hall of pleasure and into the dens of horror. A man gifted with much imagination is very susceptible to happiness, but also to misery. If he enjoys much he suffers keenly. Rousseau and Poe are examples. r How cruel is separation. Of the fates, " who," as DeQuthcey says, " weave the dark afras of man's life in their mysterious loom," she who severs the thread is most repugnant to me. I always picture her as an old hag fit company for the witches bf Brocken, brewer of the Devil's drink. E. N. Bailey, the fat and hearty editor of Britt, is back on the Tribune again, He bought his old paper a week ago. In a two-column editorial the State Register tells many things of interest about J. S. Clarkson, whose 'position on the national republican committee from Iowa has lately brought him and his place of residence up for discussion. Mr. Clarkson claims Des Moincs as his home, which may readily be credited. His whole career belongs to Iowa. He began on a farm in Grundy county, and by hard knocks became an editor of national reputation.' He did ycomau service for Des Moines and for Iowa, and while he hos made' mistakes, notably in setting himself so squarely against President Harrison, his political influence has been and is of value to the state. The Register tells at length of the official positions Mr. Clarkson has been offered. That he is not an office seeker for himself is amply borne out by the record. President Cleveland's message was read Monday in both houses of congress. It is very long and uninteresting. John Burns, the great English labor leader, is in this country. He was a turbulent working man 18 years ago. Now he is a member of parliament, member of the London city couucil, and one of a half dozen of the most influential men in England. He is 86 years of age. Sioux City Journal: The efficacy of campaign committees is enormously exaggerated in popular imagination. If the people are going your way, it makes little difference whether you have a campaign committee or not. If the people are not going your way, all the campaign committees on earth cannot make them go your way. _______________ FEOM A PBEAOHEB'S NOTE BOOK, Often have I been impressed with the fact that things to which we deny consciousness speak — I am It, and it is me, Earth and water, air and sea; I am them and they are me, In my soul the poplar shivers, ., * . In my heart the ash tree quivers, And a philosophic search Readeth anguish in the birch. Poplar, ash, and birch spoke to the man who wrote that. " Does it seem to you really so absurd that the man and the tree should have mysterious relationships? Once they were both atoms somewhere in the shrine of what you call chaos." So speaks Dr. Weir Mitchell. From him also is the following: "In the next bed ayoung carpenter lay ill. He had the clear-cut American features, neat mustache, and Vandyke beard so much worn by his class, ' How are you, Joe? 1 I asked, ' Oh, better a lot better.' I went over his case with care, 'Listen here, 'I said to my friend. My friend bent down awkwardly, listened a moment, and then followed me away, 'What was that I heard like a rattle? 1 ' Yes, a death rattle— a sentence of death in clear language,' I answered. ' It is strange to have a man's lungs talk to one, It is a language.'

" Morality is not history. To paint and to record is not to approve. The naturalist who describes the transformation of the chrysalis neither blames nor praises it He does not tax it with ingratitude because it abandons Its shroud ; he does not describe it as bold because it has found its wings; he does not accuse it of folly because it aspires to plunge into space." 4 I t I- In the opening chapter of Ivanhoe appear side by side a slave and a fool ; not far away is a master— this is life. " Night brings out the stars," says a preacher endeavoring to comfort the smitten, darkened soul. And night also brings out the foul birds'that wheel above their carrion feast, the beasts that rend and devour. WINTEB BEADING.

The Atlantic Monthly for December contains a memorial article on Dr. Holmes, by the editor, ia which mention is very properly made of. Dr. Holmes' constancy to that magazine, a characteristic shown still more strikingly in his passion for local patriotism. Mr. William Sharp gives certain letters of Walter Pater, together with some interesting personal reminiscences. ML s Agnes Repplier considers Ghosts in her most delightful manner, and rightly deprecates the attempts now made to lure them from the seclusion in which they habitually dwell. It is to be hoped that Mr. C. Howard Walker's Suggestions on the Architecture of Schoolhouses may be heeded. It is an earnest plea for greater beauty in such structures in America. The most noteworthy piece of Action in the number Is the conclusion of Mrs. Foote's very striking novelette, "The Trumpeter," the second part dealing with' a fragment of Coxey's army in their far-western march. Atlantic and UPPER DES MOINES $4.90, -t-t- The Christmas Century makes a remarkably strong appeal for favor. The number is distinguished by a new and artistic cover printed in colors. Its highlights are Napoleon, Christmas, ten stories (including Rudyard Kipling's first American story), Cole's 'engravings, and Castaigne's drawings, There are in all forty- six illustrations, of which twenty-five are of full-page size, including nine with special reference to either the religious or the domestic aspect of the season. Prof, Sloane's contribution is the second part of the Life of Napoleon and deals with Napoleon at the beginning of the Revolution, his private studies, and garrison life; his attempts at. authorship; the outbreak of the Revolution, its effects on, Corsica and on Bonaparte' relation to France, his first lessons in revolution, and his traits of character, -+•*The Christmas number of St. Nioh* olas contains many features appropriate to the holiday season. Pictures by eminent artists bring out the religious and social significance of the festival, and stories and poems also show the Christmas spirit. The frontispiece is a drawing of the Madonna and Christ child by Ella Condie Lamb, followed by a poem, "December," by Harriet F. Blodgott, engrossed and illustrated by Leon Guipon, "Santa Glaus' Pathway," by Julia W. Miner, tells how the patron saint of childhood spilled some toys from his sleigh where they were found by a poor boy and girl; at least that was the only explanation given to the recipients.

Emmetsburg Democrat: The Kossuth county board of supervisors luiye remitted the taxes of all the fartniifs ift that county who lost property in the September eycl6tte< The Palo Alto board should do the same. The West Bend Journal says that the boys are going to other towns, Al- goiia in the list, for girls! It adds: " Better stay at home, boys. They are just as pretty, and are as nice in West Bend as anywhere and we believe a little nicer. Besides our belief in protection to home products is not limited to merchandise alone." The Emmetsburg Reporter says that Melzar Haggard, captain of Company F of Algona, was an Emmetsburg visitor Monday. He was on his way to Fort Dodge to attend a meeting of the officers of the companies belonging to the brigade held at that city, Monday. Capt. Haggard is very popular with his own company, and with all of the militia boys in the regiment who know him. Should he ever be up for promotion the boys will be sure to remember him. Clarion Monitor: During their recent visit here Fred. French and wife of Wesley were the recipients of substantial aid from a number of their old- time friends and acquaintances and we have been requested by them to return sincere thanks in their behalf. It will be remembered they were victims of the cyclone which visited that section a couple of months ago, and in addition to having both of their children killed lost nil their household furniture and clothing. Al. Adams likes Congressman Dolliver pretty well, and we guess didn't feel badly over Baker's defeat. Al. went to a Fort Dodge G. A, R. bean supper and says: Good music, good supper, and a capital good speech by Congressman Dolliver. Mr. Dolliver's plain, easy, every-day talk was very entertaining, and was in many points highly instructive on matters of which our home staying people and even some of our old soldiers were not so well informed as might be. The Nevada Representative speaks in high terms of Geo. R. Cloud, who has moved to Algona: We are sorry to note that Mr. Geo. R. Cloud has arranged to remove at the end of this term of court to Algona, where he will succeed to the law business of Hon. W. B. Quarton, district judge elect. Mr. Cloud has been a resident of Nevada for about a year and a half and has shown himself a lawyer of experience and ability. He will bear with him to his new field the good will and confidence of many friends in Nevada. The Carroll Herald endorses the position of THE UPPER DES MOINES on the county doctor question: In Kossuth county the doctors are having a tilt with the board of supervisors. At the last session of the board doctor's bills to the amount of $1,946.70 were presented, and only $719.60 was allowed. THE UPPER DES MOINES makes a good suggestion, that the county medical society arrange a schedule for services, and before the bills are presented they shall be audited by a committee appointed by the society for the purpose. But this is opposed by the doctors who want their regular fees. WAKD IS A BAD CITKffi. He ttalsed a ifetty Sow at Wlsley, btit Gfot.AwUy- ifi fide tO Avoid. J, t.

Ward, a worthless specimen of humanityj who worked at hnfttoss-mak- ing in Algona at one time, has beeti connected with a big ilinliirbiince at Wesley, It began with a visit of a lot of hoodlums to Ward's house in his ah 4 sence.. They broke in the door and one of them threw a skillet at Mrs. Ward, who ratt up town and fuinted on the street Several citizens started for the rascal who had done the mischief and broke into his house to find him. His friends, at this, came to Algona to have 'Squire Raymond prosecute the aforesaid citizens for house-breaking, which he promptly declined to do. At about this time Mrs. Ward's mother came to visit her daughter and see what was up, and Ward came home from Mason City. He and his mother«in'law speedily got into a row, and he abused her till she went to Geo. Eddy's for shelter. Marshal Cosgrove was notified, and went to get Ward, but the latter grabbed a hammer and the marshal concluded to go back to town and bring assistants. As they returned Ward saw them and went and got a horse and rode away. The marshal shot at him four times, but failed to stop him. Ward claims now to be a hippodrome rider. His only exhibition in Algona was an attempt to ride Colvln's mare at a race, and it is a pity she did not break his neck, as she would have done if he could have been persuaded to stay on her till she could get under motion. Croso Ought to Disclose. The Algona correspondent of the Des Moines Leader offers the following: There is quite an effort being made to have Judge Thomas suspend sentence on Jos. Grose during good behavior. This might be a good plan if he would make a full confession in regard to who have been the recipients of the lion's share of the spoils, in the way of acting as the innocent third parties and as a fence for the ill-gotten gains. The best citizens of this county would like to find some way to get rid of the gang, root and branch. They have been a blight to the fair name of our community. If he would tell all he knows, some strange revelations might be made. He is respectably connected, was a former school teacher, and is -capable of better things. _» JOB. Grose Is Sentenced. Judge Thomas gave Jos. H. Grose a very light sentence in the case of trading blue sky, for which he was indicted. Instead of a term in the. penitentiary he gave him one day in jail and a fine of $300 or 90 days in jail. It is not yet kpown which he will decide to accept. This light sentence was accorded undoubtedly on the strength of the letters taken from Algona by Mr. Fisher. No one wanted to see a heavy penalty inflicted,- provided Crose will hereafter attend to a legitimate business. He has made nothing out of the blue sky business himself and today has nothing to support his family. It is said that he is well pleased with the result, and will quit the bogus notes hereafter. A Point In Mechanics. SANBORN, Iowa, Dec, 1.— To the Editor: In your last issue I do not agree with E. H. Slagle where he states that a disabled engine, working on one side, stops with the piston midway between the cylinder heads, is on its dead center. There is quite a difference between that point and the real dead center. T do not make the correction to show any great knowledge of mine, but merely for argument. I passed a thorough examination on this subject and many others .before I was permitted to run a locomotive on the road, and perhaps I am a little more familiar with this subject .than Mr. Slagle is, When a locomotive stops with the piston midway between the cylinder heads the crank pin on the driver will be at the top or bottom of its revolution. When at the top, it is called the top quarter, and when at the bottom, the bottom quarter. Those points are considered to be the strongast working points of a locomotive, as there is a greater leverage on the crank pin, Engineers running a disabled engine, working only on one side, will endeavor to stop the train with the crank pin on the top quarter if possible, When a locomotive is working on both sides and the piston on one side is midmay between the cylinder heads the piston on the other side will be at the extreme front or back end of the cylinder. Therefore when a locomotive is OR the strongest point on one side it is on the weakest on the other side, The reason a locomotive when working on one side is not able to start a train when the piston is at the extreme front or back end of the cylinder is because the crank pin on the driver is on the forward or back quar» ter of its revolution, consequently there is no leverage on the pin to turn the driver. Also the valve through which the steam passes to the cylinder is only open about one-sixteenth, of an inch at that point, Thinking perhaps it might interest those of a mechanical turn o| wind I have explained the subject ae briefly as ppsgihlej I hope Mr, SlagJe w}U opt take offense, as he is a personal friend ot raiae,' OHAS, . , . , fireman Q.

A new development has been reached in the suit of Jos. Thompson for injuries caused by the Milwaukee engine on Thorington street. His son Frank now sues the company for $1,975 for the injuries which he received. This suit is brought in the local court here in Kossuth, and being for less than $2,000 the company cannot take it to the United States courts. The result is that while one case is on at Fort Dodge the other will be going on in the local courts. It is not likely that the case will come on at this term. guise of pioneer whites, tainefs\ ttdififeBY Chinese, and missionaries.

A Pleasant Thanksgiving Gathering in St. Paul-One of Seventeen that Were just Like It, Judge Hicks of Minneapolis, who delivered the memorial day address ih Algona last May and who has made many pleasant acquaintances here on his numerous visits with Capt. Dodge and family, and who is now in Algona for a week, is a member of one of the most unique societies known outside of fiction, It is a pleasant society to read about, with its genial Thanksgiving atmosphere and its remarkable record of good health and good cheer Unbroken for 17 years. The Pioneer Press tells about it and its last meeting which was held in St. Paul Thursday; Among the festal gatherings yesterday there was one at Gen. Mark D. Flower's residence, No. 428 Ashland avenue, that was unique and out of the general order of Thanksgiving dinners. It was the occasion of the seventeenth annual Thanksgiving dinner enjoyed by the families of Gen. Flower, Joseph J. McCardy, city controller, Capt. Henry A. Castle, the St. Paul post-master, and Col. H. G. Hicks of Minneapolis, district judge. Seventeen years ago these gentlemen entered into an agreement at a dinner on Thanksgiving day at Controller McCardy's home in St. Paul that thereafter on each succeeding Thanksgiving day they and their families would joiri in a Thanksgiving dinner at one or the other of the respective gentlemen's homes. The proposition was accepted and placed on file, as Mr. McCardy would say, and its terms were religiously adhered to. Seventeen years have come and gone since then, bringing with them their sorrows and joys, and as many Thanksgiving dinners have been enjoyed by the distinguished quartet of gentleman and their families, and during all that time not a family tie has been severed. The same gentlemen and ladies and the same childr ren, some of whom have grown to womanhood and manhood, have gathered at the delicacy laden board each Thanksgiving day. Last year the dinner was enjoyed at Mr. McCardy's home, and the year before Col. Hicks of Minneapolis was the host. The gentlemen are all men who fought for their country during the civil war. Capt. Castle, Col. Hicks and Gen. Flower, were connected with Illinois regiments, and Mr. McCardy fought with a union Kentucky regiment. It has been the custom at each occasion for the host to deliver a short address of welcome, responded to in turn by the other gentlemen, either by story, rhyme or jest. Yesterday afternoon the quartet sat down to dinner at Gen. Flower's home at 3 o'clock. " I am happy," Gen. Flower said, "to be able to welcome you at my home on this, the seventeenth occasion of our annual dinner together, and it gives me especial pleasure to see Judge Hicks with us because of his European trip which he intends taking shortly, which, had it been planned sooner, would have caused the first break in our gathering." Gen. Flower reviewed^theoccasions of the past, lingering in pleasureable commemoration over each, and closed by suggesting that the gentlemen be all present at a dinner at his home seventeen years hence, provided- . The suggestion was approved in the form of a resolution, and the remainder of the afternoon was spent in discussing an elaborate menu and recalling happy recollections of the past. The Indicted Letts Creek Directors. Inasmuch as Silas Roupe was thrown out of his wagon and had his knee badly sprained last week, and Chris. Bierstedt has been called away by the dangerous illness of his wife's mother, it is probable that the case against the Lotts Creek school board for "hood- ling"^ apiece will be continued over the present term of court. This amusing prosecution is for a salary the directors voted themselves for attending meetings. It happened some years ago but was not brought to the grand jury until last fall, ' . A New Insurance Case. Geo, E, Clarke has begun a suit for insurance for Kinne of Bancroft, The note for premium was in the bank and unpaid, when the fire occurred and the company claims the policy was suspended, Mr. Clarke says that no such notice had been served on Kinne as would suspend the policy, The Whltteraore Cose Revived* The ipjury case from Whittemore which was dismissed at Fort Dodge is begun again in the state court for $1,999. This insures a trial in the local court. It is not likely that it will be tried at this term, SATE Qfl ALASKA.
