Carey the Victim of an Accident on a Hallway Crossing— Collision at KImore. p Last Friday while Mrs. W. B. Carey r was driving home from Algona, her carriage was struck by the north going ; Northwestern passenger train at the '>road crossing in front of the John Henry farm, and she was quite seriously Injured. The highway crosses the .track at that place at' an acute angle and the train was almost directly be' hind her. She was driving ,with the storm side curtains up and also had a ' hood on which covered her ears so that she did not see nor hear the train. .Although "she heard several whistles she thought they were frora farther back. Her horse and the front wheels had crossed the track and the engine struck the hind wheels, completely demolishing the wagon, and throwing Mrs. •Carey heavily to the ground. She stvucjs on one hip and on her face. Her lips were badly cut by her teeth, , and' her hip wa? bruised. She was taken home and Pr»- Garfleld, local Burgeon of the company, went at once !to attend her, No fears ^ are felt for her recovery. ' •Mrs.'Carey Is one-of. the pioneer f settlers of the county. 'All .the early comers will be pleased' to know that she is not more seriously hurt. A Smasli-up at Blnjore, Friday two engines on the Northwestern were running Intp Elmore. Tfce one ahead stopped unexpectedly and the bU> d one punched into the tender of the heaft engine, demoUshlng |h§ cow catcher and knocking l.n the front end of the -whoje -hwlness.

It is an incorporated village and the town council, the most of whom are general dealers, concluded to impose a high license on R. Goldstein & Son, who opened a branch store there. Ho offered a reasonable sum, but they asked more, so Goldstein will stand suit. He claims to be a resident dealer. Besides testing the law, he is going to make things pretty warm for the dealers. He has commenced to build a large store building and will have a free dance in the hall ,over the new store. After the grand < opening the council will think friend .Goldstein is a resident.

Last Friday Mrs. Will Ladendorff went to Burt on the Northwestern passenger train and on arriving discovered that she had lost her pocket book, as she thought in the depot waiting room. She accordingly telegraphed to Agent Vesper and he at once visited the room, but found two tramps there and no pocket book. They left shortly after and he concluded to shadow, them and discover if they had it. They took a zigzag direction towards the Milwaukee depot, and he by dodging among buildings and along fences kept near them without being noticed. At length they got up beyond the Milwaukee depot behind a freight car, and were dividing the spoils, when our new detective stepped out on them and said "give me that." Without a word they handed over the pocket book and money. Mrs, Ladendorff had telegraphed that there was a check in the book, but they declared they knew nothing of it, and that they had only spent live cents, Mr.'Vesper Js now advertising for the owner of this pocket book. The tramps did not have Mrs. Ladendorff s book at all, but had evidently stolen another one somewhere and gave It up without any questions being asked. When he came to town Mr. Vesper presented it to Mr. Ladendorff, but he had never seen it before, and where Mrs. Ladendorff's is is yet unknown. The owner of the one captured can have it by proving his property. If the tramps ever find out their mistake they will kick themselves over 25 miles of ties to think how they fooled away the spoils their thievery. Charley Grthiin has finished his series of matches with Df. tiarvef, and the member of the Algotia GuH elub beats the world's ehampion, two out of three. The Chicago Herald gives a long report of the two lost tneettnge, which were on Wednesday and f burs* day of last week, Of the first shoot It saye: "Dr. Carvef, 'the'evil spirit of the plains,' ran against a Tartar at Watson's park yesterday when he met Chas. L. Grimm, the granger wing shot from Clear Lake, Iowa. The shoot Wits at 100 live birds for $100 a side. The champion of the two hemls- pheres was beaten by the close score of 90 to 03. About a score of shooters saw one of the prettiest matches of the year. Up to the eighty*flfth bird the men shot a close and even race. The score was tied when Grimm gathered in a bird that had been hit very hard. Gritnm caught tho bird In his hand, the wind blowing it toward him. Carver at once set up the claim that the bird did not count', that the gathering had been done by dogs and therefore Grimm's action was illegal. Beferee Watson decided against the great wing shot. That decision cost tho doctor the match. He lost his temper and missed'the next two birds, and Incidentally the match. il Grimm only missed four out of 100 birds. A brisk wind blew from the northwest. Dr. Carver shot his favorite Cashemore ejector gun. Grimm shot his L. C. Smith ejector gun. The loads used by the shooters wore: "Carver—Twelve gauge three-inch trap shells, U. M. C. make, four drachms Schultze powder, one and one- quarter ounce numbers six and seven Tatham's shot. "Grimm—Twelve gauge two and three-quarters inch smokeless shells, U. M. 0. make, three and one-half drachms E. C. powder, and one and one-quarter ounce number seven Tnt- hanvs shot. "The birds were a picked lot, but poor flyers, owing to the strong wind and the. fact that they had been fed too heartily the night before. Among the shooters present were: D. M. Cummings, Marvin Hughitt, Jr., Otto von Lengerke; Jack Winston of St. Louis; Frank Hatley of Knnsay City, Carver's backer, and others." Of the Thursday shoot the Herald says: " Dr. Carver won the third of his series of matches with Chas. L. Grimm of Clear Lake, Iowa, at Watson's park yesterday. Grimm had won the race the day before and he also defeated the celebrated wing shot in a shoot about three weeks ago. He won two out of three matches and was well satisfied. Referee Watson kept his promise and the birds furnished were fine flyers and hard to kill " The shooters faced tho trap at 11 o'clock. Carver missed the first bird. He braced up after that and shot a cool and steady match. That he was careful is demonstrated by the fact that he used his second barrel on 70 birds. The doctor was extremely cautious and on the finish with the score close he HOLID GOODS. We place on sale this week for Holiday 100 Extra Fine Aprons, 100 doz.

Thestrain of the previous day told upon him and he was nervous at critical stages. Carver won the match by six birds. The score was 89 and 88. "Carver left in the evening for his home in Kansas City, whore he will spend the holidays, He will return shortly after New Year's day to shoot Geo. Kleinman for the live bird championship medal of America. Grimm will remain in town a few days. He has no matches on hand. "C. A.
