The Stilsons have put in a bank building that would be a credit to Des Molnea. Tbe town has waterworks and all the modern conveniences are In these buildings. Corwith has some handsome homes, a new fangled church covered entirely with zinc in imitation of stone, and is a wonderful town to have grown in twelve or fourteen years, Judge Quarton's Halsey hay case decision is creating a buzz in Chicago already. A commission man from the city called at this office Monday to get copies of tbe papers containing reports of the case and was afterwards seen in animated conversation with some of our hay shippers. He seemed to consider the matter quite important. There is no doubt that every Chicago house has been doing business as Everinghara has, and a big day of settling seems to be at hand.

There are probably 30 in town and so far as > heard from they each chucked their notice into the waste basket and • decided to await developments. If an attempt is made to collect they will stand suit and make as much trouble as they can. Emmetsburg has built Rev. Bagnell the most expensive parsonage there is in the state.

Mayne's horse and vehicle is. to be thanked for our present knowledge of the growth over on the Medium. Thursday afternoon a tramp called at the Hamilton home and finding someone in asked if someone by the name of Nelson lived there. It is thought he went south to Geo. C. Call's and there finding the house locked, everybody being at the fairgrounds, he broke a window on the south side, unhooked the lock, and entered. A watch belonging to Mrs, Call and considerable solid silver were taken, and Mr. Call lost an overcoat. Ex- g enslve jewelry escaped, showing that e did not stay long. No trace was found and no clue exists. About the same time F. W. Waterhouse's home was entered, but nothing was taken that is known, E.

Lew Stephenson, who went to the Independence asylum two months ago of his own accord to secure treatment for his head trouble resulting from a sun stroke, was brought home yesterday morning by Jith Stacy, flhd a few hours later ended bis life* The doctors there said be was getting no better and said a rest at home might be beneficial. He got very tired com' Ing home, but Insisted on the night ride. They came in at ?i30 tthd went to his house, the Dr, Reed place, and had breakfast, On the way up he had Inquired about a revolver he bad given to Jim to keep. After breakfast Jim came to his own home, expecting Lew to go to bed, but be followed him up. Once ih the house he began looking about ndmirlng the rooms, etc., until suddenly he took the revolver from b bureau drawer. Jim and his wife tried their best to persuade hint to give it up and to take it away, but did hot dare go too far. Finally they persuaded him to go back home, hoping to meet J, D. Starks there and get assistance. Jim staid with him all the time and watched for help. Finally he told him to come in the house and go to bed and he consented. Jim turned to go in and Low at that moment evidently ran for the barn. Jim was not gone a minute before he noticed Lew was not following. He started for the barn and beard the report. The revolver, 38 caliber, had been put to the forehead and death was instantaneous. Mr. Stephenson was about 39 years old. He was Robt. Stevenson's oldest child. He lived in the county until he was of age and latterly was a farmer in Story county. He leaves a wife, « sister of Mrs. Frank Parish, and three small children.

M. D. O'Connell will be with him at all these meetings' and the big tent will be raised. A grand closing rally will be held at Algona. Senator Chubb's Case. The Courier is out again with a display of mock heroics. As usual something happens to make its righteous indignation ridiculous. SenatorChubb, who is supporting Mr. Bryan and Mr. Romans, was not allowed to sit as a delegate in the republican county" con vention. The Couriej- says: "It was a singular proceeding. Mr. Chubb has ever been a loyal republican, and there was no necessity for the committee to go out of its way to hit at him. It was simply a specimen of intolerance, and one that would not have been shown but for the overweening confidence of the bosses to carry the county," It would be supposed from this that the democrats would not thus ostracize members of their party who were not supporting tbe Bryan and Romans platform. But the fact is the 16 to 1 men did not even let the Palmer democrats get inside the doors. The call for the convention, written by the Courier editor, excluded every democrat in the county except the 16 to 1 men from the convention, If it was wrong for the republicans to drop Senator Ch,ubb what was it for tbe democrats to shut out Theo. Chris- chilles, Philip Dorweiler, C. E. Helse and a thousand others? Have they not "ever been loyal" democrats? Democratic County Ticket. The 16 to 1 men met last Thursday at the court house in mass convention and named their county ticket. J. L. Bonar was nominated for county attorney by acclamation. Mr, Newell of Fen ton was named for supervisor against MiKe Weisbrod, and C, C, Chubb was named by acclamation against John G, Smith, C, H, Blossom was nominated over A. Yale of Whitte> more for recorder, and Mr, Yale was then named for auditor, H, V, Hanby of Wesley was nominated for clerk.

B. Romans in the Tenth had been a great disappointment, because of the stinginess of Mr. Romans. .It was understood when he was nominated that he would put some money into the campaign and make things red hot. Now he is said to be kicking about $15 spent for literature. The democrats are getting tired of this. There will be special trains, on the Northwestern for the Dolliver meetings at both Burt and Bancroft. They will go up about 7 o'clock and come back after the speeches. S. D. Drake made a rattling speech at Germania Monday evening. Geo. W. Hanna was at Ledytird the same evening and had a big meeting 1 . Dolliver speaks at Whittemore Oct. 8, and at Wesley Oct. 9, instead of vice versa as announced, last week. Keep the dates in mind, i Wm. T. Chantland was nominated for county attorney at Fort Dodge by the republicans by acclamation. The county republican headquarters is located in the middle room over, the Kossuth county state bank.

'• Last Thursday morning three hand cars set out from the Milwaukee depot for the west carrying the track gang to work near Hobart. They were moving along about 10 rods apart and the one ahead was just entering the big cut on the Ingham farm, when a special freight sailed down at a 60 mile-an-hour rate. The men jumped and the engine took the hand cars one by one arid smashed them beyond possibility of recognition. J. A. Vipond saw the meeting and he says the dinner pails went up like Japanese bombs at a Fourth of July, and when they burst the flying'dough- nuts, bologna and biscuits looked like a first-class exhibition pf day fireworks. Some of the projectiles flew over into his dooryat'd, and his dog has lived fat ever since, devoting his whole time to hunting up the relics. How the mistake was made is not explained. The men did not know that the freight was on, and it was coming down grade at terrific speed. Had one of the hand cars ditched the engine there would have been a wreck notable in railway annals.
