Sunday evening, while the clouds were threatening and the sky had a particularly heautiful color here, a destructive cyclone passed north of Des Moines, apd a terrific water spout wrecked everything 1 at McGregor. The : cyclone went across the north end of Polk and Jasper counties. Sev- e.nteen are reported killed, six dying, and eighteen;, badly injured, - Houses, barns, fences, trees, etc., were swept from the earth. At McGregor 16 miles of Milwaukee track are washed out, Beulab Junction was taken bodily away. North McGregor suffered a like fate, The Milwaukee tracks, roundhouse, engines, stock yards, cars and eating house, all went into the Mississippi. Twenty people were drowned between Monona and McGregor, a distance of fifteen miles, A man came to Algona yesterday on his way east. A telegram told him that his father and mother were among the drowned. The Milwaukee trains are on time at Algona, but connect with Chicago by way of Minnesota lines. The Pakota division trains run only to Monona. It will take two weeks to repair the track Destructive floods are reported all over the, eastern part of the state. The Burlington road has Ipst many miles of track, ' ..... Do you want a job? Yes! Read the 'Jewell Nursery Co. 'a ad, in another column.

Cloud will fish at ease. He las had a boat made the past week and will launch it at the mill dam. The Euthven Advance says: J. W. Tennant and wife of Algona, better known as "Uncle Joe," the genial proprietor of the Hotel Tennant, were quests at the Hotel Baldwin Tuesday. They made a very fine catch. Geo. E. Boyle has been taking the fish all out of Euthven lake. Fully 100 fishermen have been, most of the time busy at the dam for a week past. One day'some 50 fine pickerel were taken out, a few of them weighing six pounds. One or two were caught by hand, where they had jumped into the brush in trying to go over the dam, All along the river bullheads are plenty. ' Geo, E. Clarke, J, W. Wadsworth, and Judge Quarton do not tell very big Etories about their trip last week, They say that the fishing was good one day. The new fish law makes it unlawful to use more than two lines with one book on each line, and the attorney general has rendered an opinion to the effect that each individual hook on a spoon counts one, so that the use of the usual spoon with a gang of three hooks would be contrary to the provisions of the law. This means that spoon hooks must give way to the old-time angle worm. _ BuijNS does tin work of all kinds, also roofing, plumbing, etc. Always open for engagements.

John Edwards wns arrested some time ago for drunlt and disorderly con* dUot, and sentence suspended during good behavior. Saturday night, however, his behavior was not good, and he is now in for two Sentences. Billy Van Schwick is also serving a 30 days sentence for being drunk. J. W. Wadsworth is at work, as manager of the ticket department at the state fair, in devising some new tickets which will be an Improvement on those used before. The fair management have decided to be more strict about their tickets and this department will be the most important on the grounds. The Wesenburg brothers, who bought the corner opposite the Rutherford house, are* buildirg a large residence on the northwest lots • of the park block north of the Free Methodist church. They have bought two lots of that block and the old-time Fourth of July and damp mooting grounds' are no more, The Courier has published in a neatly bound pamphlet its story of Col. Spencer's escape from Libby prison, and Miss Dodd will soon have a few to sell. The story is a thrilling one and is worthy of preservation by all who enjoy a truthful presentation of the exciting times of the rebellion. The Courier should find a ready sale for all it has bound. ,...,. Henry Warner ploughed up a buffalo skull on his Seneca farm last week. He brought it to Bancroft and left it on exhibition at the Register office. It is pretty well decayed but measures 24 inches across, which indicates that its one-time possessor was a big buffalo. The backbone was ploughed out but the other bones had returned to their mother earth. High school commencement comes at the opera house,' Friday, Juno 12. On June 7 a baccalaureate sermon will be preached by Rev. Sinclair to the class, the other ministers taking part In the exercises. A new feature of the commencement program will be a class history. There are 12 graduates, nine girls, and there are 14 in the junior class who will graduate next year. Both classes possess excellent talent. When John Edwards told 'Squire Clarke Monday how it happened that he had been drunk again he said all he had taken was cider bought at the Boals and Wooster restaurants. A search warrant was issued accordingly and Sheriff Samson captured two kegs of cider at Boals' and one at Wooster's, They will be tried next Monday and their quality passed upon. Selling cider is in violation of the liquor laws. The rink was crowded Sunday morning for the memorial exercises. The Grand Army post, Relief corps, and Company F were out in a body. The memorial sermon was preached by Rev, Southwell and Was an able and eloquent discourse. He chose a passage from the account of the celebration among the Jews on account of the escape of Esther and Mordecai from Haman, and dwelt at length upon the beauty, value, arid importance of memorial days. Bill Smith is in durance vile for taking a $35 coupling from the steam laundry, smashing it up, and selling it to Mullica & Ohnstedt for 80 cents for old iron. Mr. McComb missed the coupling, which was lying at the rear of the laundry, and tracked it down, Smith did not deny taking it and was arrested accordingly. The coupling goes with some laundry machinery, and was valuable but is now worthless, Smith has always had a bad reputation in Algonn, being commonly known as clothesline Smith, the best ?
