Be has been dealing with the boys at Spettcer and Ruthven and a "gang of land sharks" is the vigorous if not complimentary title he gives them, Mr. Kelly is the man who is aggrieved and the facts as he states them seem to warrant his evident cholOr. He bought what he thought to be 600 acres 'of land in 40 acre tracts. The deeds read "40 acres more or less, according to government survey," the assurance, • verbal of course, being that to tract Would run below 40 acres. Now he finds out that in fact the tracts run short about half and he is out 300 acres at $20 an acre. He was up in Spencer last week suing "the gang." which he found had transferred their interests to irresponsible parties, and after a 10 day's trial the jury disagreed, nine to three in his favor. Capt. Luke, state railway commissioner, and W. D. Evans, candidate for senator east of us, were Kelly's attorneys. fourth Regiment Standing.

Tyrrell's Speculation. Capt. Tyrrell sold his bank stock in Algona to speculate in cattle. The Clarion Monitor reports and the report shows that the stock that wins is not bank stock: They now have 4,760 head of steers on the herding lands in North and South Dakota, and as the great majority of them were bought very cheap tho indications are that they will make a " barrel of money" 'when they sell in the fall. One man well posted in the cattle business places their net profit at $50,000, and his opinion is in no way influenced by personal interest. ' Cap. has worked at the business for years and we hope the prediction referred to may prove to be true. Tuberculosis Is Transmitted. Dr. Stalker was in Des Moines last week and talked about his experiment with tuberculosis. He told the Register that a recent experiment with tuberculosis shows that cows transmit it to their offspring. The calf of a tuberculosis cow was taken from the mother as soon as born and given milk from a perfectly healty cow. In a few weeks it was killed and found to be thoroughly full of tuberculosis, though it had never had any milk from a diseased cow, _____ Humboldt County's Trotters, Humboldt County's two famous trotters bid fair to surprise the natives this year. Both are in training and we understand are showing great speed, Vyzant starts in Des Moines in June and we see by the Republican that Rapid Transit will start at Denver early in June.

LuVerne paid the Algona ball club the compliment of bringing up some crack players Saturday and the result was that the spectators saw the prettiest game of ball that has been played on the Algona grounds since the Eagle Grove professional nine came to take down the boys some years ago. The score stood four to three for the visitors which speaks for an exciting contest andJor good playing., The LuVerne boys had the battery of the Forest City club, and it was rumored that only one man of the nine lived at LuVerne. But Hugh Smith, who was coaching the boys, said that all of the nine but the battery live in the country hear LuVerne, and Hugh-has been editor long enough to make his. word final. The home nine played a splendid game, with few errors. But for two trying to make home base on too slim chances in one inning they would-have won, or at least have forced the LuVerne boys to add to their score. Both runs were sure if the players had waited. Both Wilkenson and Salisbury are clever in the pitcher's box and did as good work as the Forest City man, and Rob. Phelps is as sure behind the bat as he used to be. The bases and field could not be bettered. Our home club will give Algona some first class amusement and can beat anything but a professional nine. BASE BALL NOTES. Iowa Falls plays the Armstrong nine Saturday at Armstrong. The Algona and Bancroft nines play at the Burt picnic Saturday. The Burt band boys wanted Algona and Armstrong to meet at their picnic Saturday. The Mulroney nine from Rodman will play the Algona boys tomorrow at the fair grounds. It will be a good game. The Burt kid nine came down Saturday and played the Algona kids, the score being. 48 to 16 in favor of the latter. Enthusiastic ballists gave $100 last week to help the Algona club fit up grounds, get suits, etc. The boys will fix the diamond on the fair grounds and use that, A week ago Saturday the Buffalo Center nine scooped the brag Arm- Strong nine. A great deal of talk resulted as to imported players, etc. The fact seems to be that the Algona nine is about the only real home club in the field. for your table call on us and see what we keep.
