Cutties' High'.bted Saddle Hot&e at Ames—Lafe Young Laid Up- Other Northwest Notes. XJncle George Palmer te happy at Fort Dodge. He is the one man who has had luck at an auction. Last week the personal effects of Ellen Johnson, deceased, were sold, and atnoag them was a box containing a mixed lot -of trinkets. Penny bids were made until Uncle George reached 19 cents, at which he got the box. Then he investigated to see what was in tt t and among other things took out an old handkerchief with something tied up in one corner. He opened it und found $40 in gold. The auctioneer at once wanted it back, but Uncle George refused to give it up. He was so excited he forgot to pay the 19 cents, hut it was tendered afterwards and refused. Miss Johnson had been a charge on the county many years, and the find was a big surprise to everybody. A curious question will be raised if Uncle George's right to the money is contested. A High Bred Ilorso at Amos. The Breeders' Gazette tells of a saddle horse, Prof. C. P. Curtiss, brother of Lawyer Curtiss, has lately bought. It publishes a fine cut and says: As a typical combined saddle and harness horse produced by the Denmark blood we cannot offer our readers a better example. He meets the requirements in size and shape, while the thorough education he has received both under saddle and in harness makes him a high class representative of that most useful type of horse. He was bred by Joseph M. Garrett, Highland place, Port Garrett, Ky., where he received his education. Highland is recorded 'in the National Saddle Horse Register. He will not only be kept in private use by Prof. Curtiss, but we imagine he will also serve as an "illustration" of the saddle-bred saddle horse to the live stock classes at the agricultural college. It is fortunate that so high a type will be available for that purpose. Young -Laid Tip. Lafe Young has been compelled to cancel all his speaking engagements. The Capital says: He was more severely Injured in the Burlington accident than he at first thought, and his determination after that to fill all his appointments used him up completely, and for the first time in his life he has been confined to the house by sickness, since Wednesday. He was not only bruised at Burlington, but a heavy man stepped on him. In addition to these things he now has an attack of jaundice. A Trick on the Parson. Rev. A. W. Luce, who has preached often in Algona, is one of the new Sioux City pastors. He took his cow over with him, and when his car was unloaded she was tied behind a dray load of household goods. When the dray arrived at the parsonage she was gone. It seems some one had sneaked up and cut the rope and led the cow away. _ Gov. Larrabee'a Generous Act, Gov. Larrabee held a $800 note- of Robert Gallion. When he learned of Wm. Gallion's death while in pursuit of the bank robbers he notified his son Charles, who is at Armstrong, to make the aged mother a present of the note. At tlie State Teachers' Meeting, Booker T.

As soon as Judge Thomas passes on it it will either be again set for hearing or an appeal will be taken to the su* preme court. The case is likely to he a test case of importance, giving the supreme court another opportunity to define how far newspaper notoriety and street talk go towards giving notice to purchasers of notes of their character. The court now holds that if the character of notes has been discussed by the papers and on the streets that that fact may be shown to prove that the purchaser was not itt fact an " Innocent purchaser," The three entertainments to be given by the opera house company in conjunction with the lecture course com' mittee are arranged. The first will be the Temple Quartette in a musical program Nov. 28. This is one of the* best musical organizations in the country and will give a splendid concert, Dr. Gunsaulus will not come until Jan. 14, other plans compelling him to change the date already announced. Dr. Headley, a noted platform talker, will come in March. These with Keeno in Richard III will give Algona a fine series of entertainments. Others, of course, will be secured from time to time in the usual line. If you want to vote a straight ticket put n cross in the circle at the head of the column of your choice. That will be a vote for every man down the lino. If you want to scratch, the safest way is to put a cross in the square in front of eyery name you want to vote for. Or you can put a cross in the circle at the head of one ticket and then a cross in the square in front of the name in some other column and so vote for the latter man, while otherwise voting a straight ticket. If you have any doubts about how to mark, ask the election judges as you go into the booth. This morning's Register has the following item: Joseph Guitard and R. C. Davis began suits in the district court Tuesday to recover from J. B. Jones $14,000, the former for $4,000 and the latter for $10.000 alleging that they were losers in that sum through trading with Mr. Jones in a real estate deal involving 1,800 acres of land in Louisiana and certain Des Moines real estate. The men claim that, not being acquainted with Des ' Moines property, they entered into the trade under a false understanding of the matter. They allege that Jones represented to them that the • Des Moines lots which he traded to them were improved, whereas they are not. They ask to recover $14,000. The hottest political debate of the season was at the Milwaukee depot yesterday morning. E. O. Towne, the orator of Monday evening, was up to take' the train and got a little traveling man warmed up on the silver issue. The knight of the grip took off his overcoat and got full swing and went after Mr, Towne's arguments until he was glad to retire. It is said that if the train hadn't pulled in luckily, there wouldn't have been enough left of Mr. Towne to make a showing at his next stop. Traveling men are loaded to the muzzle on the money question this season, and it don't pay for even free silver stumpers to touch them off. One got after Bro. Ryan'up at Swea City last week, and they say it was a hot scrimmage.- Wes. Hohn's barn and two horses were cremated Sunday night about 1 o'clock, the result of some incendiary's act. One horse was burned to death and the other was shot in the morning. A good double harness and 100 bushels of oats were lost also. The'flre was in the near neighborhood of E. H. Clarke's buildings, and his escape from fire was very narrow. In the morning the near neighbors were feeling very thankful over their good fortune and circulated a subscription paper and raised $50 for Mr. Hohn to buy a new horse for his delivery ^ wagon. The money was turned over to him. Who set the fire or for what purpose are mysteries. The recipients desire to return their sincere thanks to the people who contributed to the fund.
