It has done much toward bringing the Des Moines druggists to time in the matter of illegal liquor selling, and its efforts in other cities will be watched with interest. The prosecutions in Des Motnes have resulted in several druggists losing their permits and there are more cases pending in which the same result is likely to be reached. The commissioners sny the next work will be done in Sioux City, where it is intended to have the drug stores carefully examined,- and those that are violating tke law will be summarily dealt with, The commission says that from reports received the impression is strong that Sioux City will furnish a fruitful field for such operations. It has been desired that the descent of the commission on the law breaking druggists of the corn palace city should not be hampered by any previous notice of the fact that it was to be made. The commission do- sires to succeed in its efforts, and to this end desires that the druggists shall receive no warning of its intentions. If it should get out that a descent is to be made on the Sioux City people some other town may be picked out as ,the first victim. If the commission succeeds in Slbux City as it has in Des Moines it will become necessary for everybody who wants to buy liquors at a drug store to sign a certificate stating that he wants it for medical purposes. Some of the enterprising druggists here have a system of signing a lot of certificates in blank, with various names, so that the customer may not be embarrassed and annoyed by the demand to sign. Of course, nobody ever signs his own name, but some name must be signed, and after it is done the purchaser must take, his liquors outside for consumption. Aside from these annoyances the stricter surveillance of drug stores has had no effect. _ Bancroft's Celebrated Library. In the Des Moines Capital W. H. Johnstone of Fort Dodge writes: The town of Bancroft, Kossuth county, enjoys the peculiar distinction of having had presented to it for the use of its citizens a library of 300 or 400 volumes by George Bancroft, the historian. They are all beautifully printed and elegantly bound and were evidently chosen from his own private library. These books should ever be regarded as a precious heritage by the town of Bancroft. It was a beautiful thing for Mr. Bancroft to do. And the proper thing for the town of Bancroft to do is to vote a tax to support a free public library in their town, buy books suitable for a free public library, add them to the Bancroft collection and thus show their appreciation of the gift of the great historian and preserve it from destruction. He Hit Him All Right. Mr. and Mrs, W. A. Roper, once of Algona, live at Fort Dodge and have a boy, Carl. Carl, with a party of boys, went swimming Saturday and was sitting on the bank of the river when a bullet flred from a revolver in the hands of Willie Norton, on the opposite side of the river, lodged in his foot. According to the story of the otlier boys Willie said, "See roe hit that boy on the other side of the river," at the same time pulling the trigger. And sure enough he did hit him. The bullet was extracted by a physician and there is expected nothing serious to result. The Messenger says: Whether in fun or not it is rather a serious joke, and a good moral which every youth should not fail to heed, There is no use for boys of that age to carry revolvers and parents should be more careful, ____ Algoua District Camp Meeting.
