Death of Qeo. C. McCauley of HUmboldt —judge Thomas oh Homft Indus* tries—Other Notes. Laft) Young, who was born In old Kishkekosh county, now Monroe, is to deliver the formal address of welcome at the Burlington semi-centennial celebration.

The illuminated carnival of boats will surpass anything heretofore attempted in the Mississippi valley, and during the eight days there will be six parades of great magnificence. _ Death of Geo. C. McCauley. Geo. C. McCauley, a well known pioneer of Humboldt county, died of typhoid fever at his home in Livermore last Wednesday. The Gazette says: He was born April ,27, 1837, in Cecil county, Md., near Elkton. He moved with his father to New York City in 1849. In 1854 he went to Philadelphia in the wholesale notion business. In 1857 he came to Humboldt county and settled on what is now the Carpenter farm, which he sold in 1865 and moved on to the place which he has since occupied and where he died. _ Protecting Homo Industry. Judge Thomas on Friday last, at Emmetsburg, was importuned to perform the marriage ceremony for a couple of young people who were in a hurry to have the job done. The Tribune says: The judge could not be touched in the matter. He said it was a piece of industry belonging exclusively to the business of Emmetsburg,- and he did not want to interfere with the prosperity of the town. 'Squire Grose tied the nuptial knot an hour later and sent them away happy. Iowa Comes Only seven states have a larger membership In the G. A. R. than Iowa. They are New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Massachusetts, Indiana and Michigan, the latter leading by only 143. Iowa has 437 posts with a membership of 16,224. In the nation there are 7,303 posts, and 340,610 members. The deaths during the past year were over 7,000. The order has members in every state and territory, and there is one post in Manitoba, Canada. _ A Case for Dr. Snyors. Bailey: Joe Oxley of Corwlth has "free silver fever" so badly that he has had all the goldenrod pulled up on his farm. He pulled up all the marigolds in the garden and planted marl- silvers. He talked free silver until his moutb was cankered. The doctor wanted to give him goldthread, but Joe said, " Give me silverthread or let hercank." _ He Y\'ns a Talker. Because Mr. and Mrs. Frank Van Houten of Sioux City differed concerning the cut of a pair of trousers which the latter was making for her six-year- old son and Van Houten got the best of the argument, the woman swallowed laudanum with suicidal intent. Prompt medical action saved her life for the time, but her condition is still critical. Lives With a Broken Neck, If anyone in Kossuth should be so unfortunate as to break his neck, he should not give up the ghost without a struggle, Last week Matties Johnson fell from a ladder at Burlington, His neck was broken and his entire body paralyzed, but he is alive and his mind is as clear as ever, There is a Big Harvest. Bailey: Algona powers that be have set aside ten days for the Algonians' to devote to the -harvest of their cockier bur and pigeon grass crops. « Does the Courier Stand? Humboldt Republican: The Algona Courier, the strongest democratic paper in Kossuth county, has jumped the 16 to 1 platform, and will not support it, So it goes. The people are looking this tnatter up, and will not stand ,by.,£be ft'4e'"sily.Q£theory, As previous* JjtfJR^&'feflkUlMte paper, it will not 'stand 'th.e.ltghroi reason. WES W8 gOMEDIAHS TONIGHT.
