Larrabee has compiled some statistics from the report of the Chicago board of trade for 1895, showing the relative prices of grain under the four last administrations, Arthur's, Cleveland's, Harrison's, and Cleveland's. In his Armstrong speech a week ago he used the figures with great effect, They certainly are suggestive: Arthur's administration— 1881. 1882. 1883 1884. Wheat. .8114 .115 . 101 . 82 Oats. 8 37 43 34 28 Corn. 49 66 52 51 this: "Ourpeople have fib peculiarities. We have not even a strut, 'a drawl, a swagger, a style of dress, nor even a profanity of our own. We are simply part of the great American world with a mission to develop ourselves, improve our re gourdes and to feed the world. Our people have gathered from other states and other countries so gradually that they have polished theif characteristics off by contact" Again he said: "Iowa has no towering mountains, no great hills, nor endless plains, no awful chasms. Nature left us free froin convulsions, and a broad common sense has protected us from revolution." Another good paragraph is: "We do not grow crops in such abundance as to fertilize our acres with rotting grain one year, only the next year to grow nothing. Our blessings are in moderation; our afflictions likewise. We grow something every year—always enough and to spare. Onr progress has been as steady as our landscape is regular. We have had no booms, nor have we sought them." -f- -s- H- Senator Funk states the whole case in a sentence: Republicans believe in bimetallism, which means the actual use of both metals as money. International cooperation gives substantial promise of real bimetallism, while the Bryan" proposition •would absolutely mean silver mono- metallism. -4- -S- -f- Carr & Parker have been retained at Des Moines by the republican state committee to pass upon all legal tangles affecting the official ballot. Judge Carr tells the Capital reporter there can be no possible question about the right of the sound money democrats to use the name national democratic ticket, especially when the names of the candidates for president and realistic writing. "The Graveyard at Dora "by a new writer, is a pleasing story of the Mississii valley in old times. "A of the Mississippi valley in . Widower's Wooing," by the anthot of "Piety Corners," is a- love story With a humorous turn. The October number is strong all around.

BISMARCK'S LETTER. A fatality seems to attend the attempts of the free silver champions at quotation. Nearly everything they bave furnished on the authority of others has proved to be either forged outright or BO cut from the context as to be misleading. At present Prince Bismarck's letter to Gov. Culbertson of Texas is being examined. Bismarck was quoted by the governor as endorsing with certain qualifications an attempt on the part of the United States to restore bimetallism independent of European assistance. But the correct translation of Bismarck's letter falls very far short of the governor's claim. As quoted by the governor and circulated in the free silver press, Bismarck said: "FBIEDKICHBBUHE, Aug. 24.— Honored Sir; Your esteemed favor has been duly revived. I bold that this is the very hour thnt would be advisable to bring about between the nations chiefly engaged in the world's commerce a mutual agreement in favor of the establishment of bimetallism. Tbe United States are freer by far in their movements than any nation of Europe, and hence if the people of the United States should fidd it compatible with their interests to take independent action in the di- "ection of bimetallism, I cannot but believe that such action would exert a most salutary influence upon the consummation of international agreement. vice-president are given at the head of the' ticket. "There is absolutely nothing in the law to prevent it There is not even a reference to it, and the only objection that can possibly be made to the use of the name national democratic is that it might deceive the voter or mislead him. But a man must be an idiot who would not know the difference between Palmer and Buckner and Bryan and Sewall. Besides, the name itself is clearly distinct, and in my judgment nothing can prevent the sound money democrats from using it." -4- -4- -4- The first installment of the Midland Monthly's new sketch of Grant's career in the west appears in the October number and again calls attention to the many interesting features this growing magazine promises for the coming year. In some directions the Midland falls short- of the eastern magazines with their almost unlimited advertising support. But in many ways, also, it surpasses tbe eastern magazines for Iowa readers. Every number contains something of special interest to midland readers, well worth the cost. The sketch of Gen. Grant in the west, illustrated by many pictures never before published, cannot fail to be of great value, and it should bring the magazine a reading constituency in Iowa not much short of the adult population. -7- -i- -4- A new candidate for popular favor in the magazine line hails from Renwick. It is entitled The People's Novelette, and is edited and published by the genial editor of the Times, S. C, Higbee. It costs but 75 cents a year and contains many continued stories, sketches, short stories, poems, etc, The . first number promises well. If it is a sample of the whole the Novelette should become popular. Sexton has a barber. Ex-Supervisor Studer has gone to Springfield, Mo., for the winter. Jo. DeGraw slipped at Whittemore and broke a bone in the back of his hand. Will Shafer in Buffalo township had two graineries and a corncrib burned, Friday. Some one set the fire. The bed of Medium lake is growing up to poplars and willows. Considerable is being ploughed up and sown to rye. A. C. Scott goes to Ottosen to run an elevator. He and John Grove were down last week. The Boomer notes their presence. The Ledyard Leader says J. W. Tennant, O. Ingalsbee and Sam Squires and son went through town Thursday for Iowa lake to fish and hunt. C. A. Ordway had his shoulder dislocated by being thrown from his buggy at Ledyard last week Monday. A wheel came off his buggy, and his horse ran away. Bailey: An Algona lady exhibited peaches at, tbe Kossuth county fair, raised from the pit in four years. This is bound to be a banana country in a very few years. Wesley Reporter: Word comes from Algona that Dr. McCormack is rapidly on the decline and that unless immediate help is obtained he will soon join the silent majority. Guy Taylor's exhibition shoot at district, with headquarters at Eagle Grove, but Rev. Southwell opposed the measure before the presiding elderj with characteristic vigor and defeated it. Presiding Elder Black took asuper- numerary relation, on account of aa health, and will spend a year on his farm at Eagle Grove. t \.-.\ Among other appointments of local interest is that of Rev. S. P. .Marsh as a supnly at Sioux Rapids. Rev. Bag nell goes back to Emmetsburg, Rev. Kennedy to Spencer, Rev. Whitfield to Forest City, Rev. Flannigan to Ida Grove, and Rev. J. W. Southwell to Eagle Grove. Presiding Elder Prat requested to go back into the pulpit in preference to acting longer as pre siding elder, on account of his health and goes to Storm Lake. The local appointments in Kossutb county are nearly all returns of the former pastors, Bishop Fitzgerald much opposed to changes and made but few and those only for great cause. The local list is as follows: Bancroft, W. W. Cook; Burt, S. H. Middlekauff; Led yard, D. G. Filkins; LuVerne, A. L. Taintor; Swea City, C. J. Coulter; Wesley, C. E. Plummer; Whittemore, C. B.

Burt resulted in 96 out of 100 targets and 46 out of 49 live birds. The Monitor says: He had expected to meet Sundstrom here, but he did not show up. Armstrong Journal: Guy Taylor of New Sidewalks the Principal Item In City Buslness-A Walk Under the Northwestern Track In View. ALGONA, Sept. 26.—The city council met at the city hall in regular session, Mayor Haggard in the chair. Members present: Wadsworth, Henderson, Slagle, Ferguson, Sayers and Chapin. The minutes of last meeting read and approved. Moved and seconded that the following approved bills be allowed and warrants drawn on the treasurer for the same: John Paul Lumber Co., lumber $67 14 W. H. Koran, salary 41 75 W. B. Henderson, street work 45 75 David Archibald, labor Olo Wm. Joslyn, adm., safe 2200 A. Johnson, use of scraper 110 11 o'clock, Rev. Lahdis officiating. There was a large gathering of friends to mourn the death of a young woman in the prime of life, and to sympathize with one of the pioneer families in their affliction. Mrs. Witley's maiden name Was Carrie Iffiogene. She was the first child in the family, born Nov. 26, 1866. Mr. Chapin had come to Kossuth fresh from the War and married Miss Ann Henderson in 1865, and it was on the well known farm northwest of town that the daughter came to bless their home. She grew to womanhood, known and esteemed by all, and May 1, 1889, was united in marriage to Mr. Willey. One little daughter of five years survives her mother. She was an active worker in the Baptist church of which she was a member. In all church and benevolent work she bore her full share, and her place will be hard to fill. She had gone to Minneapolis to enjoy a visit and see the grand army gathering, but was confined to the house from the first. At the home of her aunt, Mrs. Brad. Means, she had all the care that skilled doctors and nurses could give, but erysipelas, following the fever, proved fatal. The family and Mr. Willey desire to express their thanks for the beautiful flowers and floral decorations, and for the tender regard and sympathy shown them in their recent bereavement. Algona is getting to be quite a crack shot. At a clay pigeon shoot about a week ago he hit 99 out of a possible 100. Guy will challenge Fred Gilbert some day yet. Father Nicholls was remembered in Whittemore before leaving for Europe. The Champion says: His congregation made up a fine purse of, $70 and presented it to him the last Sunday he was here as a token of their highest esteem. Emmetsburg Reporter: Mrs. Dr. Pomerine of Algona was calling on friends in Emmetsburg, Monday. * > . * * Charles Witham of Algona was! o a'n, Emmetsburg visitor, Saturday morning. He was contemplating a visit to South Dakota. Emmetsburg likes Rev. Bagnell. The Reporter in noting his attendance at conference says: Mr. Bagnell has concluded his second year's work in Emmetsburg, and measured by the scriptural text, "By Their Fruits Shall Ye Know Them," these two years stand as the most prosperous in the history of the church. All Emmetsburg people hope to welcome his return, but should the conference decide to send him elsewhere they will regret the action, but unite in wishing him "Godspeed" in his new field of labor. __^______^___ DIDN'T LIKE HIS LOOKS. The original German note has since, however, been submitted to Judge Julius Sebutz, editor of tbe Texas Vor- waertz, and bis translation differs in tbe essential points, as tbe reader will readily see: "FaiBPBWUsuupB, Aug. 84.— Honored Sir: Your esteemed of July 1 has been received, I have always had a predilection for bimetallism, but while I WMjn . office der myself infallbleiu op- rts.

The freshman collegiate class, in which Will Hinchon and Will Kain of Algona are entered, numbers nearly 200. In noticing this marked gain J. Fred. Myers of Dennison speaks of one of the big advantages of attending our state school: Those who are qualified to enter the state university ought to graduate there, as the acquaintanceship throughout the state is itself a great advantage. THE MONTH'S MA&AZINEB. The October Century contains U A Study of Meptal Epidemics," by Mr, Boris Sid is, which has a close bearing on American affairs past and contemporaneous, He gives an analysis of the social disorders of the period of the Crusades and the nervous epidemics of Europe, and explains the theory of mental suggestion or hypnotism, by which the susceptible portion of a tribe or a people or a group of peoples, give themselves up to a popular delusion. In the same number the veteran free-soiler, the Hon. George W. Julian, writes on John P. Hale, "A Presidential Candidate of 1858;" and "Topics of the Time" contains editorials on " Government by Hysteria," "The Workingman's Interest in the Gold Standard," " Silver's Worst Victims," and "An American Statesman," the late ex-Gov. W. E, Russell. 4- -i- -*• There are more tban thirty contributions in the October number of St, Nicholas. This is the last issue of the twenty-third volume, and two of the serials, "The Swordmaker's Son," and " Slnbad, Smith & Co.," are brought to a conclusion. The days in the merry greenwood are recalled in " George O'Green and Robin Hood," by Caroline Brown, This tells how the noted outlaw secured a. new recruit for his band, in the person of a stout swineherd, who overcame even Rpbin himself at quarter-staff.

A Railway Conductor Thought Charlie Elmendorf was Trying to Steal a Ride. All old time acquaintances of Chas. E. Elmendorf, for some years an Algonian, will be interested in the following story from the Sioux City Journal: On the night of Sept. 21 Mr. Elmendorf bought of Agent H. C, Cheyney, at the company's office in this city, a 2,000-mile ticket or mileage book. He went to Minneapolis that night, and when, on Tuesday night, he started from Minneapolis to Chicago, the only mileage which had been pulled was that required from Sioux City to the town of flour and saw mills. Tbe first conductor on the Omaha road to Chicago was the one who didn't like Mr. Elmendorf's looks. When the piano man signed his name the conductor asked, "Is that your name?" "If it wasn't I shouldn't have signed it," replied Mr, Elmendorf. " Well, sign it again," said the conductor. Mr, Elmendorf did so, and then the conductor said, "I don't think that is your name," "I can't help what you think," answered Elmendorf, "it is my name, and I don't want you to tell me again that it isn't," Thereupon the conductor took up the mileage book, but he did not put Mr, Elmendorf off the train, The Sioux City man went to bed, and about 1 a. m. he was awakened by another conductor who demanded his ticket. Mr, Elmendorf said the other conductor had his ticket. The second conductor then assured Mr. Elmendorf that he must produce a ticket, pay bis fare, or get off the train, He declined to do either, and tbe conductor soon saw he was dealing with a man who evidently meant what he said. With a third conductor the experience was the same. When be reached Chicago Mr, went to the office of the Roy Carpenter, labor 3 60 A. Y. McDonald, mdse 849 J. W. Robinson, mdse 4 30 L.

News that brings sorrow to many hearts came in a telegram Sunday morning announcing the death at Denver, Colo., of Miss Susie Vesper, of typhoid fever. Her home was at Beaver Dam, Wis. Some months A BUBT ELOPEMENT, Tbe handsome young: man in pn tbe cover gt the potobep Midland, Monthly, Pea Moiues , lows, is. none ptber Grant at the ap of $. The first Miss Mable Peck and the Local Jeweler Decide to Get Married, Burt has experienced quite a sensation. Miss Mable Peok, the attractive daughter of Mr. and Mrs, Wm. Peck, and a local jeweler, named Hawkins, have departed together. Miss Peok was teaching-school northwest of Burt, and no one suspected such a thing as an elopement, although her parents were much opposed to her associating with Hawkins. It is thought that they came to Algona and left on the Milwaukee train for the easti being now somewhere in Illinois. Hawkins is described as a good natured young man. He left his rent and other accounts unpaid, and several creditors mourn bis sudden leave taking. Miss Peek has bad 3her share of sensational experiences as it was over her prefer' ences that the stabbing affray at B«rt occurred a year or more ago, since she went to Cripple Creek, where a brother is employed in the Western Union Telegraph offices, and where she secured a situation as cashier. The altitude of the mountainous country seemed to exert an injurious influence upon her health, and so during the first part of September she went to Denver for a short rest. There sbe was stricken with fever, various complications of which resulted in her death Saturday evening. Her relatives here were aware of her illness, but only as late as the day she died a telegram from her attending physician assured them that she was getting along nicely, and unless something un- forseen arose she would soon be out of danger. Miss Susie was 23 years of age and well known in Algona, wbere she spent some years of her girlhood with the family of her brother, F. H. Vesper, of the Northwestern road. She was a< lovable and attractive young woman who during her residence here made many warm friends, all of whom .will learn with sadness of her untimely demise. The remains will be taken to Beaver Dam, Wis., for burial, whither relatives from here went on Monday. Death of J. B. Hoflus' Little Boy. Diphtheria has entered tbe home of ex-Auditor Hofius north of town. Last week his youngest, a six-year-old boy, seemed to have catarrh. Soon the sister next older came down with unmistakable symptoms of diphtheria. Both have been attending school in town. A strict quarantine was established and the very best medical assistance was at hand, but the boy failed rapidly, dying Monday morning. He was buried quietly that night. The sympathy of many friends goes out to the family. The word from Mr. Hofius' this morning is that the little girl is getting better and that Mrs. Hofius is also doing well. She had a bad sore throat Monday, but diptheria has not developed. TWO MISERS FALL OUT, J. "W. Doxsee of Montlcello Tells of a Law Suit that la Out of the Ordinary Line. While in Algona to attend the funeral of his little neice, J, W. Doxsee, editor and lawyer at Monticello, told some of the details of one of the most singular law suits on record in Iowa. He was engaged in the defense. It seems that for 37 years two women, Mrs. Culver and Mrs. "Fourth the examination closed without incident and the witness retired to a hospital in this city, where she still is." A SlftQtJLAB LIFE BIOOfiB, Further Details About tile Career of Frattleln Ottllle tfell, Who Bled in Algona a Week Ago. Ih a letter written the past week Mr. Louis Nell of Denver, the sole surviving relative of the lady who died at W. H. Ingham's hotne a week ago Satur* day, tells something of her family history. It is an interesting record. She was born at Dusseldorf, Dec, 29, 1839, being 67 years of age instead of about 45 as her friends had thought. Her grandfather held a patent of nobility but was in France during the revolution and had to choose between losing that or his head. Her father was a government official, inspector of buildings in Germany, and it was in her travels with him that she visited the many places of interest described in her book. Both father and mother died in 1864, the oldest sister in 1873, the youngest brother a few years later of fever in Summatra. Two other sisters kept a summer hotel near Coblenz, which was broken up by the soldiers in the Franco-Prussian war. Ottilie came to America in 1874, lived with her brother in Washington several years, then for many years was governess, then teacher in Chicago. Many of the memories of her childhood days are preserved in her little book published last summer. In speaking of this book the Germania of Milwaukee gives high praise in a quite lengthy notice which Theo. Chris- chilles condenses into English as follows: " Loose Leaves is the title of a series of sketches in which Miss Ottilie Nell relates in a modest way her life and experiences in her own fatherland and in her adopted country. The sketches will interest the young and old. They are written in a pleasant and interesting style and the reader listens with pleasure to the story of her youth and of her later views of American life." It is in keeping with the incidents of such a life; record that Fraulein Nell should lie buried remote from kindred in a cemetery in northern Iowa. Few family histories present so varied details. general passenger agent of the North* western railway, and a ticket was f ivenhim with which to return to {oux City, Mr. Obeyney }e out of the city, but when be returns DQ doubt Mr. Elnjppdorl's mileage book will be restored, to Mm.
