Mather, a Traveling Tree Pod- dlcr, L,envo8 A lira mi and Forgets Ills Hoard Bill. Algona has harbored a gray haired and smooth tongued representative of the L. L. May nursery of Minneapolis nearly all winter. He has been here two different times. The first time he paid his board bill at the Thorington, 3ut this time he managed to get away eaving a debt of nearly-$60. He also secured livery teams at the Norton jam to the extent of §12.75 which he neglected to pay for, and borrowed money of various parties, among others of-Mayor Haggard. His mime is F. Mather and his address is 202-4 Ave. 23, Minneapolis. While in Algona Mr. Mather was a constant attendant at Methodist religious meetings and claimed to have been a minister at one time. But Rev. Southwell .gave him no recognition, learning that his parchments were held by the Minnesota conference, which meant that for reasons not stated he had been dropped and bad no official relations with the church. He was a constant bible reader at the hotel and had a theory that he could break up card games by reading the bible in the vicinity. Whenever a ?ame of caVds was started he would get his bible and read it as conspicuously as possible, and as near the card table as he could conveniently sit, How Mather got hjs heavy grips out of the hotel is a mystery to Landlord McMurray. He left with his little grip ostensibly to go to Burt. But examination showed that in some way probably in the night, he had removed l his luggage. He .did not stop at Burt. But when he reached Le Seur, Minn., he wrote the following postal card to Mr. McMurray: 11 1 would gladly allow you to take my arm off at m.y shoulder blade with a dut jack knife rather than leave my bill with you as it is. If you can, believe me to be true, and I will do all in my power. "F. C. MATIIEH. It seems on investigation that al Forest City ho beat the hotel out of a $100 board bill in the same manner. ' The livery bill was run on the account of F, C, Austin Manufacturing company of Omaha. He claimed to be their agent to canvass for road, graders and that they would pay for the teams, A telegram has been sent to Omaha and the firm answers that they have never had any agent by that name anc they do not know him, Mather could undoubtedly be brought back for obtaining money under false pretences, but the game is hardly worth the powder. He is a smooth talker and his shortcomings may be re suits of poor business and lack of means But he is evidently an adept at deac beating, ' HucKvvIieat Cakes At the New Daisy Mills.

The Well-known Comedlwn will Play, " Wanted, The JiartU," In Algona, March 5. The Keokuk Constitution-Democrat says: The difference between John Dillon and the generality of actors is the difference between ripe fruit anc windfalls, one lae result of natura growth and maturity, the other the unfinished, imperfect product, The difference was suggested by watching the comedian's remarkably clever worli last evening and comparing it with the monkey business SQ common in these days of horse play and so-called farce comedy.

A Polar City, Numbers of explorers who have sought the arctic regions in quest of the pole have told of a mysterious city mirrored against the northern sky — stately buildings in choice architecture, tall and imposing spires, but such as differ from anything we know about. Whether the foundation of this mirage is a reality and only unrecognizable because of transposition as to directions, whether it is a work of some mysterious remnant of our race that once occupied the pole, .or whether this is some fanciful feafwe of the : frost, as the peculiar shrubbery we see on the window pane— whatever this is, it must be consigned to the perplexing enigmas of the unknown region. Who knows but some spot, once the theater of busy and advanced human life, may have escaped the general oataglys- mai wreck, and this city way be the silent and as yet undiscovered witness gf prepojar times, standing alone ia the dead desolation, in the rigid shrpud pf now polar death.
