' Girl Beheaded at lilvermoro. A terrible accident occurred on the railway bridge over the Des Moines west of Livermore last week Tuesday at 4:30 o'clock. The Burlington train west reached the bridge and the engineer saw three little girls at the further end. ,It is customary, it is reported now, for the Children to play there, and the engine was not reversed until it was evident that the children could not get off. -The Gazette tells the story of what followed: The engineer reversed his engine with a suddenness that lifted every man from his seat. Edna Malin, seven years of age, threw herself outside ttye rail, and when the train was about half by, fell off the edge down about 17 feet, and rolled down the bank about ten further. Alice Malin. eight years and ten months of age, just cleared the bridge and fell, the engine picking het- up and carrying her some distance further, and as she rolled from the cow catcher her head went under the wheel and her headless body was thrown to one side, The third girl, Ethel Gregg, thirteen years old, kept a safe distance and was by the side of Edna down the bank before the trainmen reached them, Edna was picked up unconscious, but not seriously hurt. The remains of Alice were also taken on the train, which ran back to town, and a doctor was called. The doctor happened to be the girls' father. This was not known till he reached the train, when he was told that the girl who was hurt was his, He made a Hurried examination, found her unhurt, and with a horrible suspicion as to whotn the other might be, tore the wrapping from the' remains. The effect upon him was such as to make by-standers turn aside that they might not witness his grief, The coroner's jury exhonerated the railway men. The funeral was held Wednesday at Livermore. ' -' A Pig Causes Trouble, Up near Ledyard last week Oscar Johnson imprisoned a pig belonging to the Dolliver tribe. The Dollivere came over to see^o.Ht it and a. row ensued, In ^ejBfkt'Johnson stumbled over the J}ogj$nfJ Dolltvep fell upon h}m with vjggitf At this point John* son's boy parae up with a email hammer and bit Politer qa the head until he was willing ^ to retire. He had the boy arrested and being in the midst' of harvest the boy pleaded guilty and paid a Jg'flne. The general ?e.p«taUq» of tbe Polliveri would b,ave warranted the boy in cracking a ekwll wbile be was at it, load to a car load. The expense of this sprinkling with Milwaukee lager beer is generally paid by Gerta&nlaandLed- yard parties, Great is Algona, and Kossuth county is simply Wonderful. This is SoHbus if Bailey in Britt Tribune: The- "hello" now reaches Bancroft, while Taylor and Matson of Algona have been swapping lies with this office. The litte works so well we could smell Taylor's breath, It was doubtless caused by the aroma inhaled frohl the court house yard, where they spilled the cat- load of Germania beer. - • ; ; Hut Mustn't Chill thti Audience. Emmetsburg Democrat: Profs. Rich, Young, and Gilchvist are instructing in the Algona normal institute. A gentlemen from Alaska is lecturing. It takes a man from a cold climate to loot- uro these evenings. • That Is Not Very swift. Fort.

The dates for the big Methodist camp-meeting, which will be held at Livermore, are Aug. 2 to 12. TRY a box of Perfection table salt, at Walker Bros.' CAT ELECTRICITY. Tbose Who Rely on It For Curative Purposes Can Get 'It In Other Ways. The London Lancet says: The electrical effect produced by rubbing a cat's back is of course well known. It is also well known that this is f Fictional electricity, or, perhaps more correctly, the electricity of • contact; that it is a surface effect produced by the rubbing; that it does not point to pre-existing electricity stored in the body of the animal, 'and that the person who, having concluded a massage, sinks into a chair declaring that his exhaustion is consequent on the loss of "the living galvanism" which he has imparted to the patient is a charlatan. It is to be remembered that friotipn between any dissimilar substances always produces electricity, and in illustration of this the electrical effect sometimes produced in a dry atmosphere when the hair is combed on the body quickly divested of a flannel jersey may be instanced, or the classic experiment of rubbing a stick of sealing wax on a rabbit's fur may be called to mind. Those who are accustomed to rely on the curative efleot of stroking a oat's back may find consolation in the last named experiment, inasmuch as it teaches them that when their "feline favorite" is no more health and strength may still be secured by gentle friction on its skin. Apart, however, from questions of electro-physiology, it is instructive to learn that the presence of white in the color, of a oat, unions the animal be whole colored, is a sign of weakness. Promotion. "How's that'boy o' yourn gettin along in tbeoity, Josiah?" asked one "farmer of another, "He's workin his way up right along," . "What's he doin?" "He's workin fer the city.
