Institutions and laws and external conditions are only secondary. Men and " women have been happy underall kinds and have lived great lives, and their great lives stand out from the obscurity which has overtaken all that surrounded them. In fact they are all that is left of antiquity, The rise and fall of empires, the struggles of ambition, the haughty display of pride, what record is left of it all? But the man who has made two blades of grass to grow where was but one before, either in the material comforts of life or in a cheerful f an The Sieu* 1 City JbliMJal takes tiotistothe statement made in tfppffli. fiss Mottttes that the chief stg* hlficance of legalisitttg" breweries at this fee is the encouragement ahd f e* InfofCement It Would bring Id the sa<* ItidH system. In discussing the matter the Journal Says: Is there ifl all Iowa ft single saidon keeper, a single inah distinctively in the retail of drinkable Hdtior, Who is interesting himself one tmrticle iu the question whether the manufacture of alcohol, drinkable or other, shall be permitted in lowal The Journal certainly has not heard of such a case. As a-rule the saloon men care little about it one Waj* or the other and it is true that many of them feel that their immediate interest is against home manufacture. In answer we clip from the Journal's philosophy which raises the drooping spirit, the ages never weary of honoring his name. Christmas is a festival in honor of the greatest of these benefactors. He attained neither wealth .not power nor worldly consideration nor social distinction nor great learning. He was not possessed of luxuriant rainment, no bountiful table was spread for him, he had not where to lay his head. He was not consulted i* making treaties, he established no boundary lines, he led no armies. He was a mere , carpenter in a little yilliage, and be associated with fishermen. And yet today all the world is honoring bis name because in simple sentences he said those things as they never had been said before, ,whieh have added .happiness to childhood, character to manhood, and have cheered old age. It is well to think of these things occasionally, We get so into the habit of bounding our opportunities and building our hopes upon the government we are under, the legislation we are going to enact, the state we live in, the soil we cultivate or even the varying chances of the year, that we miss the real lesson of the past, and go from discontent to discontent till at last life itself is summed up in failure. And all the time history is telling us with a voice that cannot^be misunderstood that government and legislation and soil and climate and prices have little to do with our real mission, and that under the worst despotisms, the most tyr- anical laws, upon the most barren soils, and in the most unpropitious climes, men and women have lived lives of great and noble achievement, lives 'rich in inner satisfaction and in outward benediction to humanity, VEKEZUEIjAN TROUBLES. Venezuela and British Guiana join , eaeh'other. They have had a -dispute about their boundaries which dates back nearly 100 years, A division line known as the Sohomberg line is assort• ed by the .Marquis ol Salisbury to be beyond dispute, and the English claim territory even outside of that. The . Venezuelans deny that the Scbomberg • '- Jine is the true line,' The United rotates have requested England to sub' ' mit the whole controversy to arbitra* <' t|on., England replies that she will / arbitrate as to wbat Hes beyond the •line, bjit as to what lies own columns the report of an interview with Geo. Muller of Davenport, state organizer of the Liberal League of Iowa. Mr, Muller has organized a branch in Sioux City with John Arensdorf, of familiar memory, at the head of the executive committee, and here is his version of what is to be accomplished: This league is the result of a feeling that the question of legislation on the liquor traffic has suffered by being made a question of partisan politics, and the league was formed In order to present it in its business aspects, free from political partisanship. The purpose is to organize the business men of the state in all lines to strengthen the hands of our friends in the legislature. The league desires to defeat the prohibition amendment, secure the right to manufacture intoxicating liquors in Iowa and protect the personal and property rights of the people. The organization has branches in nearly all the important towns of the state and already numbers several thousand members. The principal business firms In all the towns organized have joined the league, and of the * la Ms dfSSrt-ftot Written by hlffi, but • - • • • He 6was fiefc receipts are ofef 1600 its* day, Arthur dlftrk is but S6 feafSoicL HelefUfTSportef'sdeBkot the It Gate City in 1&00 and went oti the Chicago Mail itt a short time he was dramatic critic.

Soon aftef young Clark fell sick and lay danfeWtisljr 111 for three months. Last May he again assumed »vork for Frohmatt, but decided if he Was Worth $6,000 a year for Frohman, he Was worth something to himself, and resigned. Weak as he was and with no moneys he began the organization of his ttoW famous company. He has refused $50,000 for his half interest. 1 saw a letter from him the other day to his father. He closed thus; "Father, you have often written me when I was away from home, that if ever I wanted money to draw on you. I can now return your kindness. Please draw on me." Young Clark's health Is yet poor, and he is now confined to his bed, suffering from a severe nervous strain, the result of his hard labors. # # * We call attention elsewhere to the Stoux City Journal. The Journal is the model dally, without a peer in St. Paul, Minneapolis or Omaha. .Ills a more readable and better arranged paper for lowans than the Chicago dailies. It is a wonderful paper for a city like Sioux City. It AffiMMi M ft He*gin ttntjussttsisfcii Meriti sttd Will fiscal!

WH&l mm Hsfan while those engaged Sn the liquor traffic uniformly support it, they are in the minority. The president of the league is Oscar 0. Caylor of Davenport, who is also president of the Davenport Malting Co. The executive board consists of prominent business men in various parts of the state. Mr. Muller may or may not be right about the liquor dealers being in the minority in the Liberal League, but he is undoubtedly right in stating that they are uniformly supporting its aims. In fact he takes it as a matter of course as does everybody else. The brewery question is not a business or commercial question at all as it will come up this winter. It is merely a test between the Liberal League and its friends on one side and the anti-saloon forces on the other. If breweries are legalized at this time the chief and only significance will be that to .the extent of their influence reform in the methods of dispensing liquors will be indefinitely postponed. H. W. Byers of Shelby county seems to be getting pretty close to the speaker- ship in the coming .assembly. Years ago Mr. flyers was a farmer boy in Kossuth county, living north of Wesley. He moved to Shelby as a farmer, and the story-is told that the turning point in his career was in a justice court down there, when he pleaded a case against one of the town lawyers. After it was over the lawyer told him that he ought to join the profession, and the upshot of it was that he entered the lawyer's office of a student. He is an able lawyer, a ready and forcible speaker, and would make -&n excellent presiding officer. * * * Lady Cook, once Tennessee Clafflin, sends out a contibutlon to the weekly press on "Wives and Mistresses." Her agent says " Lady Cook considers her work a duty to mankind and never .accepts payment for her contribution." This will relieve the papers of a heavy financialobllgation. Algohafiee, It was a maniistJHpt news paper published every week for nearly two years add tetiA by the editors to a literary society in Atgona during 185? and Irregularly iflto 18S9. It antedated the printed Pioneer Press, and antedated the entire newspaper list of the not 1 thwest. It contained essays, poetns« and Hews,— more news occasionally than many of the late? products of press and type. Quite a numbef of the copies of this original and entertaining journalistic venture are still preserved* and the poem which we copy below from the issue of Dec. 13, 1858, will give a taste of the literary flavor of the whole. Judge and Mrs. Call are on the title page as editors of this issue but no name is signed to the poem. A cleverer or more readable set of rhymes has not appeared in the 40 years, which have elapsed since this amused and entertained the little log cabin settlement it was addressed to, and it will have especiaUnterest now to all the "real old settlers," who can recall the men who had come and gone again before 1858 had lost its place on the calendar. The poem is entitled"The Dear Departed:" I sing not of those who at Marathon fell, When the spear and the shield rang the Persians' death knell. ' Nor of those who went up from New England's brave shore, n When a thousand bold hearts dyed the soil with their gore. For others will sing of the deeds they have done, Of the lances they broke and the battles While I will record in a won 'erful "Pome," The deeds of the heroes who fell nearer home.

This is the most important appointment of the lot in the opportunities it opens up, because this committee has the tariff in charge.

The death of Mrs.Adaline Reeve at Hampton in her 76th year is of local interest in Algona, on .account of the residence here of her daughters. It is of interest also because it calls up the record of an unusually eventful and useful life, The Recorder says she and her husband were the first pennant settlers of Franklin county, their residence dating from Sept. 14, 1853, The first election in the county was held in their cabin and Mr. Reeve was the first judge of the county, Mr. Reeve organized the first company sent from Franklin county, Co.

Des Moines parties are corresponding with Swea City to secure flax tow from the new mill. M. L. Brown and W. E. G. Saunders of Emmetsburg are in Texas and will invest heavily in Texas soil. Livermore Gazette: Nick Winkel has two brothers from Algona and an uncle from Wisconsin visiting him. The Wesley Reporter is after the grain buyers.

Swea City Herald: It's about time for the Algona friends of the poor to get up their annual full dress celebration under name of the "Charity Ball." The Garner Signal says of Sheriff Schmalle, who delivered Bendig at Anamosa: Schmalle came home Thursday and has been confined to the house since with badly bruised feet, The Wbittemore Champion says Lawyer McEnroe got $10 of the $25 paid by the Widow Hitler to the rejected suitor. As the latter didn't get hia license money back he is not much ahead on the deal. Estherville Vindicator: An Algona shoemaker received a counterfeit silver dollar from a citizen of that town recently. It is hinted that there is a mint located somewhere in the city, Algona wants factories and it seems she has them, and the best paying kind too—for the proprietors. The town of Hanna is putting on style, The LuVerne News says: Fred Fairbanks went over to Algona Saturday and brought home something grand, at least he thinks so. It was a pair of toothpick shoes. It will be well now to keep out of his way, but never mind, Fred, they are very becoming. The Iowa Falls Sentinel clips the sketch of Alfred Magoon and says: From far away Honolulu pomes the following account of the honorable, achievement of a young man who was born in our neighboring county of Kos» euth and as lowans are all pleased when an Iowa boy gets to the front, we here reproduce the story of Alfred Magoon as told by a Honolulu paper, Editor Mayne, who came frpm Em» meteburg to attend the funeral of Mise Nellie Wftlker, writes of hew Walker was $n exemplary woman every respect and to know her was admire »nd love be.r for her no. „ r ittes of mind, a,n4 go»l, Alw&ya hi-; - cbeerfui herself, *>be to all with And they waged a fierce war, success, Against two whiskey barrels which daily grew less.

Ingham and claimed .the Rlebhoff grove on the Black Cut. Lindner claimed the Paine grove southeast of Burt. The creek south of E. P, Keith's is named for him. ,Moore owned all that part of the present town site of.Al- gona south of McGregor street. He built a house where the Buell house now stands. He went to Brooklyn, N. Y., and is said to be very wealthy. Minkler was a cousin of Orange Minkler. The Wheelocks had the present Holm farm in Plum Creek. . They bore no relation to the family now represented in the county.

Now one r * does not need to go so far from home to '', take a flying trip. Some people are Incredulous regarding the speed often attained by railroad trains, and deny that they can, and frequently do, run a mile , per minute, while others assert that , once upon a time, so says ancient lore, they made a trip from A. to B, at the ' rate of a mile per minute all the way. • Now the former class of paople are ' wrong in being incredulous, while tbe latter are as far from the truth in matf-i^ ing their assertions. The fastest train in the United States' is the famous Empire Express, on which that beautiful piece of machinery knomc^ as No. 999, the engine so many admired $ at the Chicago fair, runs. ,*' They have but recently made thefast"' est time in the world for a long, contln- 1 , uous run, which was something less I <" believe than 55 miles per hour. What I wanted to write more particularly about is the train on which lam employed -in the capacity of postal oleVk. On the morning of Dec. 5 16 we left Albert Lea on schedule time, W.- G. Hays, engineer, engine No. 55, which is one of the compound variety, having six-foot drivers and being cor- v respondingly large in all its dimen- ' slons. Its entire weight is 80 tons. ' Our train was delayed 80 minutes, at^ the second station by a hot box on fhe^ engine. After this was remedied, we" began our-phenomenal run, but ttgaijr at "Waterville, Minn., we were delayed^ After leaving Waterville we made no stops until we reached Jordan, V> a , ran at the rate of about 45 miles an hour until we reached Montgomery, an <w intermediale station, when things' oe-^ gan to whirl, as the engineer was "ian-)<| ning, her" as railroad men say, 1 vooif;,; out my watch.
