Whitsell of Sheldon has an interest in 80 acres of land he seems unable to care for. County Attorney Perkins wants a guardian appointed and this is his chief allegation: V That defendant has before him the example of even the lowest of God's creatures, who lay in their store for the winter, but unlike these, defendant has no thought for the morrow; his earnings of the working season are squandered as fast as they areearned, and when the harvest is past and the summer is ended his is an empty larder, and the snows of winter find him without food or fuel and the taxpayers and the county have repeatedly been obliged to keep him from freezing and from starvation, and the plaintiff charges the fact to be that the cause of all this is that the defendant is a spendthrift. Wherefore the plaintiff asks that! a guardian of the property of the defendant be appointed." A Good Lecture Course. Estherville Vindicator: The Algona normal school authorities have made arrangements for furnishing- the people of that city with a most excellent and comparatively inexpensive course of educational lectures the coming- fall and winter. There will be three on American history, three relating to 'literature, and three on subjects in social economy. The whole course will cost but $1.75. Algona seems to be blessed with a class of citizens considerably above the average in cultivated tastes and tho ability to enjoy the things of a better and a higher order which make life worth the living. Many good things go the way of the Algopians. _ Bailey's Crop Stories. Bailey admits tliat Kossuth has the premium crop stories, but puts in this one for Hancock: Al. White down at Goodell planted an acre of popcorn.- It ripened early and Al. out it up and put 'it in the barn, fodder and all. Light' ,ning struck the barn and set it on fire, 'and the corn began to pop; It filled the barnyard full and ran over- the 'fence, and an old horse with defective eyesight that was grassing near by saw it, thought it was snow, and immediately froze to deaih, Now this is old enough to be true, and we personally know tlmf Al. Whlt'e lives in Goodell. Southeast If you have any intention of going to the Southeast this fall or winter, you should advise yourself Of the best foUte from the North and Wost.
