Here la Britt's declaration as given in the Tribune! The Clarion and Algona papers are agitating the matter.of an extension of the D. & D. from'Belmond through those towns. What earthly u advantage could be gained by paralleling the Fort Dodge road to Clarion and • the Northwestern to Algona, we can't Bee, when it could be built direct through Britt, running through an unoccupied country via Buffalo Center, through the richest agricultural country on the earth, to the best and most productive lands of Minnesota. A R. B, always has an objective point. In this case it is doubtless this northwestern country, and Britt lies on exact air line, between Belmond and the great northwest, Besides it is down grade both ways, both going and coming, except a little up grade in coming up the hill into Britt. The road will run through Britt when it is built. A Disabled "Engine. The Milwaukee passenger engine east last Friday morning, had one side disabled, but escaped the "dead center," that has lately be discussed by THE :TJPPERDES MOINES correspondents. Ed. Bailey, in the Britt Tribune, lets light on tbe subject in this connection, and says that a one-sided engine is all right when not stopped on a "center." He adds: "When it does, they have to start the engine with a jackscrew. We were on a train recently when it had to , be started twice one Jay in that manner. It was out on the Columbia river in Washington. Hunting a soft place between tbe catcus plants we enjoyed • the landscape and watched the jack rabbits while the train men moved the train along at the rate of three-sixteenths of an inch a minute. It was very encouraging to the passengers to watch this operation an hour or two at a 'time." THE BOW AT SIOTJX CITY. Borne More Court Scenes In Which J. H. Qulcfc Figures—a Parrot and Monkey Time. For some three weeks the supervisors , of Woodbury county have been on trial at Sioux City for, misappropriating county funds. J. H. Quick, a former Kossuth county teacher, has been prosecuting, and several items have already been published showing the peculiar animosity the attorneys have shown. The Journal has recorded several late incidents of the trial. One is given as follows: Mr. Quick said: "We think this money was converted by Strange, but have made no proof." Mr, Treadway said: "Your thoughts on the subject are worth no more than those of any other idiot," "Well, you ought to know, Mr. Treadway," retorted Mr, Quick, "as you have contemplated yourself for a great many years." While Quick was cross examining Strange, the chief defendant, the witness became excited and angry, and, Shaking his finger at Mr. Quick, said: "No, sir; I did not and you know a d—n • sight better. I would like to tell you something about that if you will give me the bill filed in the case." Treadway has caused a ruction every day pf the frial, Here is a sample re^ ' port; Mr. Treadway made some remark to the effect that a witness was ,, fixed with Citizens' committee gold. . Mr, Lynn retorted that that was a lie >* and that tbe falsifier, referring to Mr. ; .Treadway, knew it, ,» - Mr. Treadway grabbed bis cane, '* wWeh vvas lying OB the table near him, i' ftnd tu,r»iBg to Mr. L»y»n said: "If you " —:0 ppt 80 small I would hit you over i bead with this.

He called on Mr. .ay tQ keep quiet, but that gen* was thoroughly aroused, and ,' be didn't propose to be called a by anyone, in pr out of court, and , be would tell Mr. Lynn what he jugbt Qt Ww in spite pf tbe epwt. i proceeded to do so, but the remain' - -* bis remarks were lost in the epn» ,™ wr tb»t followed, which consisted |cf j-ftarto from Mr. Lynn amj the rop- • |b9 court &r order.

Sf, PAUL, Minn., Nov. 25.—tt was on Thanksgiving,afternoon, 1894, that I had the pleasure and good fortune to hear the great Gen. Booth speak on the topic "The Christianity of Christ." It Was a typical Salvation Army meeting, and the People's church, one of the largest in St. Paul, Was taxed to the utmost to hold the immense throng that came to hear the noted divine and see the mah who started that wonderful Christian army to work in London, raising the fallen, caring for the sick, reclaiming the lost, and living Christ's Christianity. At 2:30 p. m. the local army filed into the church headed by a brass band of-50 pieces, which took its station in the choir. The army was seated on the pulpit platform. Soon the band struck up the old tune "We'll work till Jesus comes" and the army and congregation joined in the chorus. It was an inspiring scene, and earnestness and devotion shone on every countenance. The second selection by the band was "He is the chief among ten thousand." Gen. Booth had not yet appeared and all were eager to see the great man. Who is that tall, stoop- shouldered man with long white beard and hair? Ahl that is Gen. Booth, and as he comes down the aisle a mighty hallelujah goes up from a tbou- sand throats. The general takes his place upon the platform seeming to take no notice of the immense audience confronting him. He takes up a song book and reads verse after verse of the hymn "There is cleansingin the blood" commenting on each verse as he proceeds. The band plays and all sing. Then the general prays a short fervent prayer, and while all are on their knees they sing another hymn. It seems to lift one heavenward to look upon such a scene. An army is always brave that has a brave commander, and Gen. Booth is one of the bravest. "Give me a heart like thine" rose from those bowed heads, the sweetest of music. When they arose I fancied a halo of glory filled the house, and I am sure every heart beat in unison with the sentiment of that beautiful song. Then followed a vocal duett by Ballantyne Booth, the general's son, and-Colonel Lawley of London. "To save a poor sinner like me" was the title, and both words and music were suited to the occasion. This ended the musical part of the program, and as soon as the house became still Gen. Booth arose, and by way of apology, which all public speakers indulge in more less, began by telling an anecdote of the man who went to hear a noted Frenchman speak: "Did you hear the Frenchman speak?" one man inquired pf another. "Yes." " Was he a good speaker?" " YesI" the other replied. "Did he speak in French?" "Yes, he did." ,'Do you understand French?" "No, I don't." "How do you know then, what he said?" "I didn't know what he said, but I understood what he ought to have said." The general said he might say some things he did not intend to say, but his hearers must only understand what he ought to say. His discourse was short, occupying only 45 minutes in delivery. He said the Christianity of Christ was his life—any one can understand it. It needs no explanation. He lived what he taught. So with other religious teachers. If you would learn of Mohammed go to Mohammed. If you would learn of Confucius, go to him. If you would learn of any great reformer, go to him. So he says, if you would learn of Christ, go to him. As a speaker the general is clear, forcible, concise. His voice is not harsh and his manner is pleasing. He makes very few gestures and stands most of the time while speaking with his hands behind his back. When he does choose to make gestures with his arms, they are quick, nervous, vehement almost, and show an immense amount of vital force in the man. Sometimes be gestures with his head, in fact, that SBems to be his favorite mode of impressing bis words upop his hearers, The general is of commanding presence, standing over six feet in height; bis forehead is broad and high; his nose aquiline and very large; his arms and bands long and bony. I shall never forget hearing Mtni for fow have done more for humanity than he, and the movement he has sot on foot will continue long after he has been gath» ered to bis father's. Yours, very truly, ELMRR HARVJSY A company of Italians, Gypsies, Turks of some other kind of foreigners ar- f-ived tB Algona Friday aftd furnished business fof the courts, ft seems that a couple of them were brother and sis-> ter from Damascus, nnd that she was carrying $785 of his money for safety, and that he had begun to suspect that she had designs of returning to the far east without him, and also without re* turning the money. Accordingly he consulted Cloud & Haggard and began steps towards a readjustment of their financial relations, steps which led to a lively time. Geo. Hunter made the ar* rest of the woman for disorderly conduct, it being proved that she was On the streets long after midnight raising a disturbance. She resisted arrest and showed that she possessed a knife, and a search conducted by Mrs. J. H. Randall disclosed the $736 in her stocking leg. After the money was found she consented to return it to the man if her fine was paid out of it, and the $5 and costs-'Squire Clarke'had assessed were accordingly liquidated and the couple turned loose. It is reported that later on a discussion of the situation led to violent recriminations between the couple, and that the man gave the woman a severe drubbing. For Hesitating nt» Officer. Up at Ledyard, not long ago, an old- time Algonian, Oliver Marquis, who is now constable, decided to have a certain hall in town cleared of what he considered disorderly characters, and accordingly went in and ordered them out. His peremptory manner irritated one of them and he punched the constable severely in the face and escaped. Last week he was traced to Radclifle and brought back. Stopping at Algona he agreed with 'Squire Raymond to plead guilty, pay all costs, and be let go. But on his arrival at Ledyard he took a change of venue to Germania and there being no one to prosecute he was dismissed, the justice giving Mr. Raymond no notice. Hereafter it will go harder with men who make agreements and then don't live up to them. Accidentally Shot. In attempting to arrest a drunken rowdy at Lake Park Thursday, the marshal accidentally shot John Hunt, the butcher, an old resident, perhaps fatally. • A Boomerang:. I. Underwear! Underwear!
