Wty WimiUUi AND FINE OPTICIAN, Repairing of flw The opening of the forfeited railway lands in O'Brien and Dickinson coUH< ties to settlement caused an exciting scene at the land office in Des Moines last Thursday, There are 22,000 acres to be had and before 6 o'clock in the morning there were over 1,000 men .waiting to file applications. About 400 spent Wednesday night on the side walk so as to be on hand. • Those who went to hotels were up and on the scene by 4 o'clock. The crush for places in the line began at a few minutes after 6 o'clock in the morning, when the south door of the federal building was opened for the purpose of getting the claimants into a line leading up to the land office. The job was conducted by United States Marshal Bradley, assisted by about a dozen deputies and city policemen and took until 9 o'clock to execute. The weary task was well dono and was marked by first class order in the ranks of the 000 or 1,000 eager men who had come long distances to file cjalms and whose anxiety was naturally rendered intense by the knowledge that all other things being equal the claimant who filed first would secure the land. The Register reporter says the general anxiety to get as near the front as possible in the procession was counteracted by the fear to offend the officers who were lining them up, lest they be sent clear to the rear, If not put under arrest for disorderly conduct: and this fear, combined with the excellent judgment and vigilance exhibited by the officers, served to produce a state of order and quiet which, to the casual observer, appeared strikingly remarkable. There were four women in the line, one of whom was gallantly permitted to step aside and sit on a box, and when she was well rested was allowed to go ahead of about 100 men who had been in advance of her. She was about 45 years of age. Phil. C. Hanna Again In the Pulpit. An Alden dispatch states that "Phil. C. Hanna, who represented this country as consul to Venezuela under the Harrison administration, has entered the evangelistic field, and has been assisting in the protracted meetings in this part of the county. He seems to be successful in his new work." Evangelizing is not new work for him, as that was his sole occupation until his health failed him some years ago. John Dillon at Eagle Grove. The Gazette of last Thursday says: John Dillon played " Wanted—The Earth," in the opera house last night to a packed house. This is the best play that has been presented on our stage this season. Everybody went with the expectation of seeing some- 'thing fine and were not disappointed. There were people in attendance from Thor, Goldfleld, Woolstock and Clarion. Buthven Forgets to Levy a Tax. The town council of Buthven failed last year to provide for the assessment of a corporation tax. Hence, the town this year is without any funds. This matter came to light when the citizens of Ruthven came to pay their taxes, The taxes are light by reason of the oversight of the Ruthven town council, as about $600 would have been collected for the town fund. Wanted Too MucU SUlmmed Milk. Judge Quarton at Erametsburg last week bad a peculiar case before him, A creamery, an incorporation, imposed a fine pf $5 against one of the incorpo- ratore, a farmer, for taking away more skimmed milk than his allotted share, The farmer took the case into court to test the validity of the creamery's action, ^ Mason City Druggists Fined, Judge Sherwin placed the fine on the Mason City druggists found guilty of selling liquor illegally at $400, Hon. A, C, Rankin has formed an antl-aa- Joon league on the Ohio plan, There is considerable talk of applying the ravrtqt law to druggists who persist in selling. _ __ • Wesley Would P»ie« tji« Wind, Wesley Reporter: With the capital Algona possesses eb,e can well afforfl to put up $85,000 in prfler to secure astate normal eohool, The a4va.nta.gei tfhat would'naturally accrue to any town having such &n Institution .are self evi d0nt.
