It is wore than probable that Miss Elizabeth Staffiy, the ftomaa under J300 bonds to ftt)pei\r before the federal grand jury and answer to the charge of receiving, opening, and destroying letters addressed to others, has shaken the dust of Cedar Rapids frottl her feet and sought a more congenial clitne. She is the person Who appeared at the postofflee recently, dressed in men's clothes, and attempted to get a registered letter addressed to Gottlieb Schuerle, supposing, as future developments have shown, that it contained 510,000, a sum of money left Schuerle the death of his father. The Cedur Rapids Republican says she had all preparations made to lenve when she WHS arrested, and it has received a card which is written exactly as were the letters to the Algonti bank, as all will see who have read them, The card to the Republican reads: "the latia an truest News of Miss fi Stamey of cedar Rapids. She has left the city to sum far dlstan city ware she Will meet her metiey fronds with hapy greting." If she has gone the $300 bond will be forfeited, which is probably sufficient penalty for her offense. Sclnici'lo iu Aljfoim. Gottlieb Schuerle, the long lost, arrived in town Monday evening from the west. He was at Pipestone, Minn., and only saw in the paper Sunday the story of his inheritance. When he did see it he says be thought Herman Rantzow had been starting •& story at his expense, because he knew there was no $10,000 for him, and also that he had no lady relative in Cedar Rapids. But he was interested enough to take the train for Algona. Arriving at 0 o'clock he went to the post- office and asked for mail for Gottloib Schuerle. Mr. Hinchon directed him to Mr. CbrischilleB, and steps are now being taken 'to get the $700 that is his share. It will take about two "months to get the money and Schuerle will spend that time in Fairville, where he has friends. Money. I haye unlimited money to loan on long or short time. B. W. HAGGARD.

Stevens handed in his resignation as pastor of the Baptist church last Wednesday, having already accepted a call to the First Baptist church of Rochester, Minn. Rochester was in 1890 a city of nearly 6,000 people, and has a fine Baptist society and church. Rev.

Probably but few people in Algona now that Miss Nellie -Walker Was in Chicago for medical treatment. It was •enerally supposed that she was mere* y vi jdting her brother. The news of er death Saturday came therefore as a ompleto surprise. It seems now that he went there in the summer and was ixamincd and that for some months she las been under an electrical treatment or tumor, and that a surgical bpora- lon was finally found necessary. It was performed last Thursday by Dr., Thompson, one of the ablest surgeons n the city, with every prospect of a avorable outcome. But there wore ound to be two tumors, and tho extent if their ravages greater than had boon uspected. She rallied from the operation and seemed to bo on tho road to 'ecovery, but Saturday at 3 o'clock she complained to tho nurse of feeling [ueerly and wanted her friends sent or. At 6 o'clock she was dead. She simply gave out under the strain and aded away peacefully and without pain. Her brother Will and wife came it once to tho hospital and Rev. Walter of Elgin and Rev. Rome of Bolvidere irrived Sunday. The four in company vith the remains arrived in Algona Monday morning at 8:13 o'clock. Miss Walker, was 45 years of age, the oldest of her family, being born Jan. 3,* 1851. She was well known in. Algona as an active church worker and nls,o through her numerous business and social relations. She was always ljusy, il ways cheerful, always competent, always willing. She was the mainstayi of a rapidly aging father and mo'.her, one whose helpfulness could not be estimated until, it is withdrawn. ,She was an earnest Christian and met death calmly., In letters to each member of her family she wrote before she underwent the surgical operation, fully realizing what might result, and assuring them all that ; whatever the outcome she was content. Thpse have proven a balm and comfort. Tho funeral was hold at the home yesterday at 2 o'clock, conducted by her brothers, Rev.' Stevens assisting. A large body of friends met to pay their last respects and to follow the remains to the cemetery. Walter read passages from the bible and paid a beautiful tribute to his sister's memory, describing her birth in Vermont, her life in Illinois and.her 17 .years in- : Algeria. Rev. Stevens followed with an appreciative estimate!, and Rome closed the services with prayer. The participation of her brothers' was by a request she had made when the possibility of death first confrented her,'and made the service peculiarly impressive.

His t feeltng was w.hen he 'was done that he would like^to, have him out back of the capital a few minutes. The sheriff went out to secure, Wm. Compton, late of 'Bancroft, who is said to be in de- .mand in that town to father at least three prospective additions to the population, Ho* had the proper papers made out by Gov. Jackson, and had Compton located in Colorado and went to Gov. Waite to have him honor the requisition. The governor found fault, however, with some items and County Attorney Raymond wus telegraphed to and tho matter fixed, Then the governor refused to honor the pa- pei-s because Compton had not yet been indicted, and so Sheriff Samson had to come bad? without his man, The trip was a big expense to him and one the state will not allow for, and be will not go to Colorado soon again to secure a criminal. It is unfortunate that he could not bring Comptoq back, for he is deserving of a life sentence to the penitentiary, While in Colorado Sheriff Samson was in the midst 'of the 'Cripple Creek gold excitement. Cripple Creek ' is about'as big a towp as "Wnlttemore and- not half as well built and there are now 20,000 people in it, He had to sleep three in 'a bed to get a place at all while he was there, and the real gold mine, in his opinion, would be a big barn divided into bed rooms. For the accommodations one gets ho pays $4 a day, and glad to have t>he opportunity. He was in the Bljiok Hills during the gold craze, but he says that was nothing to what is now to be seen at Cripple Creek. A HOUSEHOLD TREASTJEE, D. W. Fuller of CunojoUarle, N. Y., says that he always keeps Dp. King's New Discovery in the house and his family has always found the very best results follow its use; that he would not be without It, if procurable, G, A. Dykeraan, druggist, Catskill, N, F., says that DP.
