Thomas Foote, 22 years old, died at his home, seven miles from Spencer, under peculiar circumstances. He. was affected by what he ate to such an extent that when he indulged in beef he would become restless, wander out and bellow like an ox, going /down on his hands and knees to eat grass like a cow. After he partook of mutton his actions were those of a sheep, and he would bleat like a lamb. When he ate chickens he would go out and scratch for worms, which he devoured with apparent relish. His father killed some squirrels, of which the son ate heartily. He left the house and was followed by his father, who soon saw his son jumping from limb to limb of a tree, barking like a squirrel. He called for him to come down, but this only seemed to make the boy want to escape, and he attempted to jump from one tree to another. He missed his footing, fell to the ground and expired in less than five minutes. The Walker Wliltesldo Engagement. Emmetsburg Reporter: Manager Blossom of the Algona opera house company has closed a contract with the company which plays Hamlet, with Walker Whiteside, the eminent tragedian, acting the part of Hamlet. The play will not come off until Nov. 26, so that the management will have ample time to advertise the play. This is necessary as a large guarantee had to be put up in order to secure the company. Manager Blossom is taking the right course to make the opera bouse entertainments popular, It is far better to have a few first-class plays than to have any number of snide affairs, as the public will appreciate them more, _ Ike Swelgard's Senatorial Race. The Wesley Reporter comments on the nomination of Isaac Sweigard for the senate and says: M After leaving Wesley Ike got into bad company, backslid from the republican party, and since then has been training with the democrats, We are pleased to note the honor conferred on him, which shows be is at the top, but his chances for election are so poor that we fear his judgment was somewhat impaired when be accepted the nomination." Another " Steal" Jail. The Worth County Index tells about prisoners at North wood cutting the jail bars with a case knife and nearly escaping. They were then taken to Mason City, It adds: We have been told that the cells are all right and that the county got what it contracted fop™-steel cells— and we are npt in a position to deny it, But if steel cells can be cut to pieces with an ordinary table knife what is the use- of buying them? Why not make cells of basswood or something that wouldn't spoil the knife?
