MBOW, THE STRONG MAI I Sees Mte in 8k Paid, ftfld troitdtUiceS Miitt the Wondef of the Miieteefith Caps the fciifM* of by Bearing the tefibrftiotia Wfeight of 3,000 founds. ST. i?AtrL, Jan. 9.—There are strong Men and strong tnen, intellectually, inorally, spiritually, and physically. Sainsott Was no doubt the strongest man that ever lived of whotn We have any record? but his strength was God-given and not a result of physical develop- inetit, I never saw Samson, hut I have Seen Sahdow, and 1 will try and tell you Something of this Wonderful man. In looking at him one sees as perfect a epecitiien of man as the world affords. He is a giant—not in size but strength. Sis eyes are blue, his hair light brown, almost yellow. He walks straight as an arrow, and when his muscles are relaxed, four of which he has trained to answer to his demands, he looks the same as any other large man, His first appearance on the stage is posing as a statue. The room is dark, except a strong calcium light that is thrown on,him. He stands motionless, looking down. Then he raises his arms and puts all his muscles at a tension. Such armsl Cords, tendons, flesh, all stand out plainly in bunches. He turns. Hfs back has the appearance of a checker board. Muscles cross and recross, taeet and diverge, and when he moves they seem to run riot. He faces the audience again and expells the air from his lungs, then inhales—wonderful inhalation, for he has expanded his chest fourteen inches. His chest measurement is 47 inches—now it is 81. He turns his back again to the audience and shows plainly three sets of muscles. He shows a wonderful arrangement of fibres that anatomists have heretofore denied; but they are there and can be seen by gas ligbt a distance of three hundred feet. Sandow now turns and walks to ' the front of the stage. The orchestra plays, and his muscles actually dance to the music. The people look on in amazement. I had read of Sandow, but I never .thought him such a wonderful man before. Is he heavy? Yes. > Is he clumsy? No. Two dumb bells, weighing 56 pounds each, are brought. He picks up one in each hand, holds them out at arms'length, lets them down, swings them—look! He gives a light spring and turns a backward somersault, still holding the dumb bells in his hands. A man comes up to him on the stage. He puts his hand to his back, picks him up, holds him up over his head; slowly he gets down, down, until he himself is lying on the floor; but he still holds the man in the air; he rises and sets the man on his feet again Here come five men bearing a large rubber dumb bell. It is very heavy and is all they want to carry, Sandow makes the usual salutations to the audience, stoops and picks up the burden and raises it above his head. Then he slowly lowers it again to the floor, when lo and behold, out jumps a man and a dog from one end, a woman and a dog from the other end, • weighing in the aggregate 300 pounds. Is there no limit to the strength of this giant? We look to the right of the stage and there stands a nickel-plated post, called a Roman column. Midway between top and bottom are steps for the feet. Sandow climbs up, lightly, to these steps, places his feet in them, then buckles a strap around each leg just below the knee, to which he hooks a chain that is attached to the top of the column; , now he lets go with his hands and leans backward until his head is, near the floor, picks up the two 56-pound dumb bells, then raises himself to a perpen- dfcular position, His muscles seem like §teel when he raises the enormous '•weight, but not enough yet, Another dumb bell weighing 56 pounds is placed at tb9 foot of the column, This he ,picks up and raises until he is again sending upright. He hooks it to ebainsQ the weight, when he raises will opine upon him midway between J4s knees and hips; then be lowers again and picks, up the 56* belle and raises with' all three of them, or 256 pounds, and a.11 by the jnusojej of his,legs and back, But San dow still PR? the greatest feat to fie {jets down OB bftfld? and feet, face uppermost? a platform is bought pia,oefl uppn hie chest; then—wonder of Pee aiwwt bpW^ his breath. d^vrtQntoiiij San- red ae the blood tbrqugh jthew, ^ ho }s rigid. 9, that bears % weight pf ,0QQ ppijndj, The. platform i? owered §t pee end, m$ tt»§ horses Urn IB the Su'nday, Feb. 10.

OOOLUEBS SAVES A HOME, Mrs. .7. T. ChrlBclillles With Great Presence of Mind Extinguished a Bad Blaze. One of Algona's finest homes had an escape from fire one night last week which is quite remarkable. A big hristmas tree had been left standing in the parlor at J. T. Chrlschilles' and was being stripped of little ornaments jreparatory to removal. A little wax ;aper lighted it. Somehow the taper came in contact with the tree branch and in an instant it was all in flames. The dry season had made all evergreens dry, and this had stood till it was like tinder. The top touched the ceiling and the fire was not only hot, but filled the room. The lace curtains were in a blaze and a few seconds only were needed to insure destruction. Mrs. hrischilles was alone with her little boy, and if she had run to call anybody or had opened a door, nothing could have been done. She did neither, however, but grabbed a big rug and threw it over the tree, and with another whipped out the flames, until she had the fire under control. • And this was done with little' Theo. hindering her and calling her. attention to the fact that his brownies were burned. The' piano was scorched and the glue in the inside melted. Everything in the room was damaged, the loss in all reaching $200 or more. It was a lucky escape from something more serious, as may be judged from the fact that nothing was left of the tree but the charred stump when the flames were finally mastered. ONE hundred pails of syrup just arrived, at 50c. All pail goods guaranteed.

Somehow this slipped while the strain was heaviest and flew out, the end striking Anderson on the side of the head and slipping down to the shoulder. Had he been four inches farther* back he would have escaped, He was taken to town at once and Dr. Morse sum* moned, but no help could be rendered and he died yesterday morning. The doctor thinks the base of the skull was fractured. He was about 45 years of age, and had gone to the ice house to look for work. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. Dr. Ed. Watson is at home on a visit. Rev.

ALL. parties owing me on must call and settle at once, Dunwoodie.— 41t3 account Joseph GBEATSALEOF PIANOS. The W. W. Kimball Company Doing 1 Big Easiness In Algona. The most remarkable piano sale, perhaps, on record began last Monday morning at the Bronson jewelry store, as advertised in the Friday Courier, by Mr, B. P. Ewing, general agent of the W. W. Kimball Co., who has charge of the disposing of, or returning the stock to the factory, and the number of pianos sold during the week, and particularly yesterday, demonstrates clearly one very important fact, pamely, that the cry of " hard times" and "no money in the' country" is unwarranted; but, on the contrary, when a profitable op^ portunity for investment presents itself there is jnoney plenty, and no real bar' gains need escape, Many of Mr, Ew ing's pianq sales yesterday were for ^1 cash, notwithstanding the fact that the purchaser poujd bavs had payments if desired. The store was a perfect jam from morning till night, Mr, Ewing being obliged to go without his dinner in order to wait on the people, and then many had ,to go away unattended. Yes, yesterday was banner day in the great piano sale at the Kimball Co.'s closing out sale. Hardware merchants, bwtob» ere, lawyers; conductors, bankers, and doctors all took a hand, in the deal, and it was a matter of which got h}8 money put first, tooH choice. Mr, Ewing sold si* KiiabaU pianos and twoKiwbali of' ga,ns yesterday, the entire day's gales amounting to over |1,8QO. Who save " hard timei?"

Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder. Two signal trimuphs have been achieved by Dr. Price's Cream 'Baking Powder. First it received highest award and diploma at the World's Columbian Exposition in 1893. Next it secured highest award and gold medal at the California/ Midwinter Fair of 1894. At both fairs it surpassed all competitors in every respect. The award in each instance was for strongest leavening power, perfect purity, and general excellence. It was sustained by the unanimous vote of the judges. .The victory at Chicago establishes the supremacy of .Dr. Price's as " The Foremost Baking Powder in the World." The triumph at San Frunois- co confirms and emphasizes it, our stock of Harness, Whips, Saddles, Blankets, 'Robes, and other harness goods to our State street shop, and now have a full line.

A pure Grape Cream of Tartar Powder, Free from Ammonia, Alum or any other adulterant, 40 YEARS THB STANDARD, A mythologic co-nlo opera by Fruna Von Supper composer of " Fantinltza," etc. Preceded by THE ROSE OF AUVEBGNE As C. M. Doxsce was leaving his store last Saturday evening he met a man at the postoffice who had come in from the country to get a RIVERSIDE RANGE. As he insisted upon taking the stove home with him he returned to his store (Winkie's old stand) and upon entering was surprised to hear voices in the direction of his shelves. He listened and heard the door locks talking in a high key. Just then the guns shot out of the case on to the floor. This turned the tin pail and made the slop jar. The axe cried out in hunger, "I want a chop" The wedge nearly split laughing to see the ''oil run. 'Th^ augur said he wasn't afraid a bit, and told the stock to brace up. The buck?- saiv the broom sweep up and down the store and called to the A comic opera In one act, written by-H. S, Farnle, and music by Offenbach, composer of "The Grand Duchess," "Orpheus and Eury- dlce," etc. , jS"Seats at Dlngley's, screw-eye.s to see, The 'ice has just caught on when tongs tles cast iron at the heating stoves, who got down below,cost to get out of the way. The powder said " I'll be blowed if I can stand so much noise." The paint- looked up at the/rtm bell and remarked, " I don't peal like yon do." Yes, said the glue, " You're a sticker? The range then spoke out, which silenced all and said, » others, "Take me or I'll get stove up Just then they heard another stove pipe out, " Please take me ;" but the purchaser was an old fisherman and a cowboy and v(as partial to the RIVERSIDE RANGE, , so it was quickly loaded and he started for home. To prevent another outbreak of this kind Mr, Doxsee has reinforced his lines, so you may' feel safe in coming to the store. You'- need have no fears whatever, for the lines are all so well assorted that you will even find a mat,dr safe.
