The story of it recalls one of the thousand touching and tragic incidents of the war. She gets $550 back pension and hereafter $12 a month, on account of the death of her son, Win. Dunlap, in the last battle before Richmond, April 6,1865. He had enlisted as a boy of seventeen at the opening of the war. After three years he re-enlisted. He was engaged to a young lady in .Ohio, to whom the following letter was written by his commanding officer. It was through this lady that, evidence was secured by Mrs. Yemans' attorney to prove her claim, and since steps were,tajten to secure it the ' lady has died. This letter tells the story of one of the million of brave IJbys who went down unknown and unwept except by one or two. It is still preserved by Mrs. Yemans, yellow with age, a^l is a relic to be treasured: HALIFAX COURT HOUSE, July' 1865.—I am in receipt of your dated June 26, 1865, You ask for information with regard to one Sergt. W. E. Dunlap of Company K, 6th O. V. 'a All the information I can give you, I will. On the morning of the 6th of April our regiment was ordered to move more rapidly to the support of the 2d brigade. We formed in an open field. Mounted and receiving an order to charge, we did so with our old spirit. That morning I heard Sergt. Dunlap say fchat h,e was bound to get a furlough, .{as you are not aware that a furlough of 30 days was given to all soldiers who should capture a flag from theehemy.) I told him I was hoping to get'one, and to be sure and keep it. Dear friend, that noble- boy fell that morning from his horse a bleeding corpse, for I was not far away from him at the time. He was far in advance of the regiment with pistol in hand fighting for our noble cause. Oh, dear friend, be proud of his name, for no man could be a better soldier. I mean by that, that no man can receive a higher or prouder title than that of being a good soldier. ' I hope that in future years you will ever respect his noble name and think of him as one of Ohio's noble and true-born sons of the Union. Yours 'respectfully. Jos. E, DARWENT, Lieut. Co.

The following report in the Eagle Grove Times is of interest in Algona: "Chas. Ray, tinner for W. Probert, lies at the Revere house with a bullet in his leg. Sunday a party of young men went into the woods northwest of town to spend the day. They Had with them several rifles, and during the afternoon were shooting at a mark. While some of the marksmen were getting ready for a shot Ray. started toward it not noticing the rifles pointed that way. The marksmen did not have time to lower their guns before they went off. One of the bulls struck Ray entering the scrotum and lodging in the pelvic bone. He was at once brought to town and Drs. Morse and Wright fixed him up. The bullet was located but has not been taken out. Ray was resting easily today with no serious prospects," Nick is a member of the Algona lodge of Redmen, and will be oared for by them. It is hoped by all his friends that he will recover rapidly, The Opera/ House Company HUB Closed a Contract Vor Ills Appearance In February. It is now certain that Keene will play either Richard III.' or Julius Caesar in Algona in February. The opera house company closed the contract Monday guaranteeing Uie company more than has ever yet been paid fora company in Algona; The New York Dramatic Mirror of August 22, says of Keene's company: The tour of Thomas W. Keene, accompanied by and under the direction of Chas. B. Hanford, will begin earlier than originally arranged. They intended to start about the middle of October, but they have changed their plans arid will open the season on Monday, Sept, 21. Mr. Keene has spent the summer at hts beautiful home on Staten Island. He has abstained from all activity and kept away from the metropolis since his last tour ended.' His chief aim was rest. This relaxation from fatiguing travel and the 'strain of professional work has brought abundant physical prowess, and he will commence another season in robust health. Mr. Hanford spent two months at Atlantic City and Cape May. He is now absorbed in preparations for the coming tour. In a chat with the Mirror representative he said: "We shall have a large and complete organization. Among the principals of the company, are Bennett Mattack, Warren Conlan, Lawrence Lowell, Bertram Temple, John Milton, Paul Taylor, Mary Timberman, and Mrs. S. A.. Baker. The repertoire will be Julius Caesar, The Merchant of Venice, Richard III, Othello, Louis XI, Richelieu, and Hamlet. It has been several years since Mr. Keene played Julius Caesar, which the coming season we shall present with adequate scenic dressing and careful attention. Mr'. Keene will play Cassius, I shall appear as Marc Anthony, and Mr. Mattack will impersonate Brutus." PEESONAL MOVEMENTS. The Evidence Does Not To the Editor; There are a good many things much nearer fabrication than the story of the demonetization of silver and how it WHS brought about, If you will publish the evidence I will agree to furnish it, which shows that Ernest Seyd was in the United States since 1856 and that silvej- was not demonetized in fact until after Mr. Seyd's visit. We are not much interested in Mr. Seyd's letter to Mr. Hooper. We are more interested in what Mr. Seyd did than what he said in a letter. We might also say Fred. A, Luckinbach's sworn statement is quite as good evi* dence as Mr. Seyd Jr.'s open letter. S. H. MoNuTT.
