Caught His Man in the Very Act and Ran Him In-^A Cowardly Assault on Geo, L, Galbraith. A man, who gave his name to Justice Clarke as Chas, Arnt, was captured Monday morning about 2 o'clock in Walker Bros.' grocery store prying open the money drawer, Night Watch Hunter was standing across the street and saw him light a match in the store.. He at once secured a couple of young raen, Stephenson and Bowen, and put' ting one at the front door and one at the rear, went for the Walker boys, who opened the front door and walked in. Arnt ran for the back door, but finding bis escape cut off hid behind some flour. He was finally located and was found armed, but he made no attempt to use weapons. Re was taken to the jail when Marshal IMley took bim in charge, iq the morning a search diS' closed three gold watches in bis pockets and some gold shirt studs on a card. He was well dressed and apparently a olever and experienced crook. He was brought up and held to tbe grand jury in $§00 bonds. It seems that he broke into James Orr's shop and stole the obisels with wbiob be opened tbe, transom, pyep the year door in the store. Tbe chisels were faunfl, and Jas, Orp fou,n4 the book that holds hie floor -squarely broken off. He climbed on tbe rooj pf tbes&edpver tike rear door and so hrefee |n, He claimed to feave «B§ nal •wfao. escaped. He claimed, $wp»tbers belonged to the g s ft mate? the pal Marshal Dailey captured a stranger from the train at Whittemore and Sheriff Samson brought him back on his return from Emmetsburg Monday morning. The man claimed to bo Mat Grady, and had just come from a visit with friends at Bancroft. Investigation here proved that his story was all right and he was let go in the afternoon, taking the train west again. DrunKen Assault on Geo, Gnlbraltli. Monday evening Louie Eiler, an all* around tough who lives near the depot, assaulted Geo. L. Galbraith as he was on bis way to catch the train for Chicago. Mrs, Galbraith had gone up with her brother, Leo Puegnet, and George, who was delayed by business, was running to meet Leo coming back, and was in front of Wm. Cordingley's house when he met Eiler, to whom he spoke, Eiler was drunk, and with a vile remark struck George on the side of the head, breaking his hat rim off and knocking him down. George could not wait to attend to him, as his train was whistling, and he went on to the depot, Agent Vesper saw the attack from the depot and called Marshal Dailey's attention, he being at the freight house looking for tramps, He came at once and took Eiler, who resisted a t first a fid only allowed himself to be taken when a revolver was pulled on him. Eiler was put in jail and yes* terday morning was brought before 'Squire Clarke and was fined $75, He is a worthless specimen and Algona could well spare him, JAMES A, OER, painter and paper bangev, Postal oavd orders promptly attended tp.

TAYLOR'S is he,ad quarters for black GAME mm TO DISCUSS, Afld They Talked with Vigor Upott Abil* ity Govern, and Kihdted Topics of the School* An enthusiastic gathering of teachers Was at the high school room Saturday—the largest yet held in the couh* ty, Before 10 o'clock 100 were present, and the total attendance was 186. They had come to discuss, as was evident after the first paper was read. A .half dozen were on the floor at once as anxious to catch the chairman's eye as some congressman at Washington with a public building scheme to look after, and they talked to the point wheh their turn came. The first debate was On THE ABILITY TO GOVERN. There was a wide difference of opinion as to whether or not military discipline ought to be enforced. It was clear that many approved of less restraint. All seemed to agree that some were born to obey and others to command; and that only those teachers of the latter class could successfully hold a school in proper discipline. After this Prof. E. W. Richards of LuVerne read an able paper on how to secure "EXPRESSION IN READING." His statements so met the approval of the teachers that but few took exceptions. He favored the idea of bringing out the sense of a sentence by indirect questioning and not by reading of the same by the teacher as a model. The paper read by Prof. J. R. Byers of Bancroft called forth the most lengthy debate of the session. His subject was "THE RECITATION- HOW Can Better Results be Secured?" As it touched on all the branches taught in the schools it afforded a fine opportunity for all to debate. Great interest at this time was manifest. Before he had a chance to take his seat scores of questions were asked him; each answer called out further debate. In answer to one of the questions he said that although he was principal of the graded school and had a regular time daily programme, yet when a difi- cult topic was at hand he ignored the time until the topic was exhausted. Mrs. Horton and many of the older teachers fully agreed with him in this point. The debate became so warm and extended that Supt. Reed had to order the discussion closed for want of further time. Many asked that the subject might again be brought up before the session ended. Methods of teaching PENMANSHIP was the title of Prof. D. E. Johnson's able production. It was received with universal approval, but no sooner had he taken his seat than he began to be questioned about the vertical writing fad, of which he had said nothing in his paper. He said he believed in so- curing smooth and beautiful writing, whether it be vertical or otherwise. It was surprising to see how many advocates there were for that system. The afternoon session opened with two vocal selections by a class of students under Miss Randall's direction. Prof. F. C. Bower of Whittemore, in his ingenious endeavor to set forth methods for teaching the usually dry and uninteresting subject of ENGLISH GRAMMAR, called forth the most sarcastic and spirited debate of the day. A dozen or more testified that-they had found it a dull and exceedingly hard subject to teach. S. H. McNutt said it was because we had so long been tied down to Harvey's grammar which was very unreliable. Several followed, denouncing Harvey as a fraud. Miss Vinton said the book was a steal from Greene's grammar and that where he followed that author he was right and where he followed Harvey he was wrong. She believed Bancroft had won a reputation for sending out good grammarians and that it was because they taught Reed & Kellogg's grammar; that she had no trouble in teaching it, liked it, and perhaps took more interest in that study than she did in arithmetic, This threw the convention into fever excitement. Miss Zellhoefer , thought Harvey no good, and Reed & Kellogg very superior, but she thought she knew of a still better one than either. The Reed & Kellogg grammar was the favorite of a majority of the speakers, Supt, Reed asked if Harvey had a defender in the room. Mrs. Horton arose and warmly defended him except in his topic on the infinitive verb, Prof. Lilly closed the afternoon exercises with a very interesting lecture on MENSURATION. He has the jnostextensive apparatus for explaining the geometric problems in arithmetic that has ever been collected together in this part of the state. It was something decidedly novel and beneficial. The next meeting will be held in Bancroft in May, at the call of Supt. Reed, . Money, I have unlimited money to loan on long or short time. * B. W.

It is equally true that death and a mortgage is a combination you cannot sunder. When death and a mortgage combine, an estate usually goes into the hands of strangers, and the widow and orphans have little hope and no inheritance. The life work of the father is defeated. He has sown and the harvest is marketed for the benefit of others than his own family. Mortgages are given for good and sufficient business reasons, and the transaction is safe enough if the maker lives to pay it; but having no assurance of living, it is wisest to provide against the dread combination of " death and a mortgage." It can be done by securing a policy of life insurance in the ROYAL UNION LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY of Des Moines. In case death occurs, the money is at hand to fay the mortgage, and the combination is defeated. This is a plain; and simple business proposition. The man who cares about his estate and loves his family will eagerly accept it. " What you leave at your death, let it be with" o^^t controversy^ else the lawyers will be your heirs" THE ROYAL UNION LIFE of Des Moines, Iowa, its securities deposited with the State of Iowa to guarantee the fulfillment of all its contracts, has pew plans that it wishes those contemplating insurance to examine. If it has not as good as the best it does not expect your patronage; if it has as good it wants your business. For a full explanation send your name, age, and address to J, L.
