LbC*l Option in fiimore—About A SUte Rifle Range—Miscellan*ous News of the Notthwsst. Lu Verne is agitated over recent discoveries about Kossuth's cow*boy evati gelist, A. S. Finnell. He opened up at Clarion some five or six years ago, then went to Goodell, and finally landed at Lu Verne, Where he left his wife and a young child and also two children by a former wife, He was as gabby as a March wind, and used to have a lone- ing glance occasionally at Algona, as though a great field for his saving labors might develop here. But il seems that California out-bid Algona, and the history of events since then is thus given by the Clarion Monitor: A short time ago word was received from southern California that the Rev. (?; Rascal had applied in the courts there for a divorce from his wife, on the grounds of adultery, and was about to marry a wealthy widow of the slope. Finnell still masks as a minister of the gospel, but the presiding elder didn't like the appearance of things and quietly began an investigation, the result'ol which will not only block Finnell'a di vorce scheme but undoubtedly land him where he belongs—in the penitentiary —for on learning the situation of affairs the citizens of Lu Verne have taken a hand and propose that justice be done to Mrs. Finnell, who is not only vouched for as a lady of irreproachable character but one who has labored hard for several years to earn an honest living for herself and the children of the rascal who is now traducing her. Elmore Goes " No License." Algona's old local option days are recalled by the following report of the late Elmore election, by an enthusiastic "no license" man who writes to the Blue Earth Post: We, of Elmore, are celebrating tonight. Not the death of the democratic congress, nor the birth of George Washington or Abraham Lincoln. Important as are those events, we feel that this " caps" them alj, in that it effects our present and personal welfare; and so we are celebrating. The anvils (not cannons) are booming, and the proverbial "small boy," assisted by numerous large ones, are shouting, and all because we have downed the whiskeyites to the tune of 54, and Elmore will continue to be what t has always been—a temperance town. Last year our majority was only 13, so JTOU see the temperance sentiment is increasing. A Staie Rifle B,ange. The State Register last Thursday said: Col. Thos. F. Cooke of Algona, reneral inspector of small arms practice for the state of Iowa, was in consultation with Adjutant General Prime yesterday in regard to the matter of securing a state rifle range. Ex-Adi, en. George Greene of Cedar Rapids is also here, having a plat of ground near Cedar Rapids that he thinks will make a good range and that he was trying to get adopted. The plan is to have a centrally located range, properly fitted up and have considerable instruction in rifle shooting in the near future, with some competitive shoots. Trying the New Diphtheria Remedy. Diphtheria has recently developed in .he city hospital at Fort Dodge and )r.
