The railroad from EuthVett tiorth to Jackson, Minn,, 6f which so Much has been heard, and which was intended to reach from Manitoba to the Gulf of Mexico, has come to a standstill. Last Wednesday the men who had been doing the grading wanted to see the color of the company's money. Nearly 100 workmen followed E. E. Carpenter, the projector, formerly of Des Molnes, Into a bank at Jackson and demanded their pay or Carpenter's life. He finally begged off with promise to pay by next day noon. Over $20,000 is due the workmen. Jackson township voted a tax of $76,000 conditional that the road was to be completed in the township by July 10 next. Lloyd township, T)ickinson county, voted a 5 per cent. tax under similar conditions. All but three miles of this tax has been earned. Wednesday's events make it impossible to go further, and Carpenter is reported to have resigned the presidency of the construction company. Two inch planks are said to have been used In culverts and discarded street car iron from Cedar -Rapids is a part of the material used to encompass the terms of the tax requirements. About twenty miles have been graded between Ruthven, la., and Jackson, Minn., and eight miles have been ironed. Since work began at Ruthven six months ago no money- has been spent for labor or material, and but little cash is said to have gone into the right of way. Everything was accomplished on promises. _ Sheriff Narey IB Equal to It. One Albertus, a typical tight-rope performer with quick-fitting pants and a falsetto voice, practiced his arts in Spirit Lake one night last week, the Beacon says. He was the admiration of many foolish girls, but only one could have him, and this one was Olive Rogers, aged about 17. The pair went away together. Albertus was arrested at Emmetsburg and spent a night as a guest of the county. As we go to press a wedding is about ripe, if Sheriff Narey can arrange the details, and he is equal to almost every emergency. Some Minnesota Rye. Olof Johnson, a late Algonian, has been bringing some rye stalks from Martin county, Minn., to the Estherville Vindicator office. The Vindicator says of them: The stems measure six and a half feet long and are as straight and strong as- cane stalks. Mr. Wool- cut has a field of twenty-five or thirty acres of this grain and Air. Johnson says the specimen brought in is a fair average sample. It will be a difficult matter to harvest the grain. The Trials of Authors. Frank W. Calkins' library was sold at sheriff's sale last Friday at Spencer to satisfy a claim, including costs, amounting to about $100. The library contained many good works, which sold for a mere song, books costing from two to three dollars each selling for ten, fifteen and twenty cents each. About $43 was realized by the sale. Vic. nolllyer at Omaha. Victor B. Dolliyer is engaged to deliver the Fourth of July oration at Omaha, and will remain at Fort Dodge until that date. Mr, Dolliver has a campaign of activity before him, as the national republican committee wants his services on the platform in half a dozen different states this year, One Good Pump Gun. Ed, Fuller, who lives about five miles northwest of Rolfe, was attacked by a vicious bull and was badly bruised besides having several ribs broken. A Plover butcher filled the bull full of lead from a pump gun, but not until after he had killed a heifer that was grazing near by, Mr, Fuller -will recover, _ Algona Gets a Good Teacher, Mason City Republican: We see from the Algona UPPER DBS MOINJSS that Miss May flo'telling has been elected to a position in the schools of that city, Per sister, Miss Bird, is already ft teacher in the Algona schools, Friends will regret the departure of Miss Hotelling from Mason City. Stunned I*y Peter Rassrousen, » Northwestern section bogs, was badly stunned by lightning Tuesday afternopn near Ivvington, He wae standing with one foot on the rail when it struck and. was knopked insensible, The LuVerne about the matter. HaPtman, however, said he was above all pettsloh boards, that his action was final, and that Mr. Ranney, he thought, Was entitled to ah Increase. He asked to stay to dinner and was entertained, and neither Mr. nor Mrs. Rahhey had any suspicion, as he seemed to be Well -posted in medicine and also in the pension bus!* ness. Mr; Katitiey, however, thbught it was strange that this administration should be sending out an agent with a livery teato td increase pensions, and kept inquiriog more about the matter. Hartman said he was clearly entitled to a raise and that upon his reflobt the raise would be granted, and that the fee in case It was granted would be $10, This Mr. Ranney readily assented to and said that he would willingly pay If an Increase was granted. Then the woodchuck came out of the pile. Hartman went on to say that he had to forward $5 with his report and that of course Mr. Ranney would have to pay, and na it would be veiry Inconvenient for him to come way out there for the other $5 it would be a matter of convenience if he would pay the $10. At the mere mention of the money Mr. Ranney caught on and told Hartman he guessed he had struck the Wrong house. He asked to see Hartman's government documents, but Hartman, after pulling a lot of papers out of his pocket, said it Would be no use to show them as Ranney could not understand them. Hartman was driving a livery team from Emmetsburg, and had before he left inquired about all the old soldiers In the neighborhood. No one else has reported meeting him, but it will bo strange if he don't succeed in fleecing someone. It is a clever dodge. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. Mrs. Wm. K. Ferguson returned from Des Moines today.
