THIS WEEK at the. At the . $1 Shoe Sale Pair Store. The lady whd swindled Corwith, claiming to have a building burned down at Whittetnore, and who was arrested at Brttt, was at Burt and probably at other towhs hereabouts. The Burt Monitor clips the Cofwith report which appeared in THE UPPER DBS MoiKES and adds the following: "This same lady worked Btirt, also. She had a petition which claimed she had lost nil her property at Whttte- more by fire. It contained un attest sigiied by a J. P., and the alleged document had the proper jingle to it. It was headed by "Masonic lodge $20," followed by prominent business men, J. M. Farley, Alex. Dorweiler, Henry Thompson, and so on. Some of "the business men of Burt contributed. One of our hard-working men with a large family gave her $2, others different sums, the editor included, and so It goes. This giving to strangers for alleged charity's sake isn't always Christianity." The list of swindles belhg practiced now, reported in papers from all over Iowa, is a long one. Iowa is the garden of Eden this year and all the tramps, fakirs, and dead beats are likely to flock in. Anyone is foolish who invests more than a dime on anyone without making a careful inves-, tigation as to the merits of the claim. '•? r* As we placed orders in the factories for a large quantity of shoes of all kinds when the shoe market had reached the lowest point that has ever been known, and before the sudden advance in leather which has caused the big _advance in shoes, it places us in position to sell shoes at retail at what is now the wholesale price. As we are a little short of room for our big stock we have put part of the stock in the Fair Store, and will close out all of the stock that we have—only a few pair of a kind—regardless of cost.

J, E, G, BOWYER, Doxsee ,& Shaw, > Abstracts of Title, Australian Ballot Law Dispute. A peculiar point in connection with the Australian ballot system of voting has arisen for which no provision appears to have been made by the lawmakers. At the republican county convention at Jefferson Dr. O. W. Lowery, a candidate for representative, was defeated by P. A. Smith. Nothing has been heard or said concerning the mutter until yesterday, when Dr. Lowery appeared before the v county auditor and asked if nomination papers had been filed for the office of representative on the'republican ticket, that being the first day for filing. He was informed none had been presented, and thereupon produced nomination papers signed by 25 republican voters of the county asking that his name be placed at the head of the republican county ticket on the ballot, as provided by law. The county auditor said he would take the matter under advisement, but it is understood the demand will not be granted. Dr. Lowery holds that the law does not take cognisance of political conventions and that in its eyes nomination papers signed by 25 republicans are just as legal as the nomination papers signed by the chairman and secretary of a convention, and that being a republican and the first to present papers he is entitled to the place demanded. In case that is refused the matter will be appealed. Kossutli'B Products Will Bo There. Emmetsburg Reporter: The Kossuth county fair, which is to be held Oct. 1 and 2, gives promise of being a good one. The press of that county have been telling such marvelous tales about big crops that visitors will expect to see ton pumpkins, half-ton turnips, and other vegetables In proportion. As to corn, why, it will have to be brought to the fair on wood racks because the ears are too large to go into an ordinary wagon box. It is going to be a big show and everybody should see it. Palo Alto County Has a Law Suit. Wm. Hazlett, a Laurens attorney, fell on the barb wire strung along the walks leading to the court house at Emmetsburg, while crossing the yard one night last spring, and cut his hand. He has filed a claim with the auditor for $1,000 damages. The cut that he sustained was quite a severe one but did not result ; in any permanent injury, consequently $1,000 looks like a pretty snug sum to the Reporter to ask for a few days' partial disability at the most, J, It. Blossom Welcomed, Mr. 'and Mrs. J, R. Blossom returned to Spencer last week after a few days in Algona and Minneapolis.
