Joyce by Ed. Larkin at Emmetsburg. Larkin was acquitted, but soon after showed himself a worthless specimen, a record he seems to be keeping up. Here is a late dispatch from Marseilles, 111.: Intense excitement was created in this city today by the attempt of Edward Larkin to shoot his wife. Mrs. Larkin made a plucky resistance and, as a result, succeeded in turning the revolver so that the bullet intended for her entered her husband's leg instead. The shooting occurred in Mrs. Larkln's millinery store. After the shooting bis wife had him arrested for assault with Intent to commit murder. He was brought into court on a stretcher. His wife told the story of the shooting and, as he refused to say any thing in defense, he was placed under $1,600 ball and in default will be taken to the county jail at Ottawa. A mysterious letter, received from Larkln's brother in Chicago today, figures prominently in the affair, but both refuse to divulge its contents. Claimed to Be From Algona. Tuesday morning a young Swede or Norwegian about 19 years of age, who claimed to live in Algona, wanted an overcoat and being on the C. M. & St. Paul train near Mason City, he appropriated a good coat lying in a seat. It happened that this particular coat bo- longed to a conductor who was " deadheading" through; and missing it he began to look over the passengers and finally discovered his coat several coaches distant from where he left it. The Britt Tribune says the train men took him into the baggage car - — [Newest Things ' so we are showing a large line of Gents' Furnishing Goods.

He begged and squealed like a sucking pig. We had rather undergo an ordinary trial and sentence than the guying of those railroad boys. He may steal another coat but he won't take it from a railroad man. And So They Were Married. Armstrong Journal: A widow living three miles west of Whittemore, who has wanted to get married real bad for some time, had her wishes gratified last week. A man at Livermore was informed of her desires to again enter the matrimonial state. He hitched up his team and drove out to her farm, and after talking with her about an hour said he liked her and would be willing to marry her. She said she liked him and was ready to get married. They got in his buggy and drove to Algona, and were united for weal or woe. Idttle Girl Run Over. Down at Nels O. Movlck's on the Kossuth border near Bode a sad accident occurred last Wednesday. The hired man was doing some work about the yard with a team, and a little girl about four years of age was in bis way. He told her to go to the house, and supposing that she had gone, he started the team forward, but the little one bad evidently gone to the other side of the wagon and was knocked down, the wheel passing over one leg near the body, crushing the bone of the thigh near the hip.
