WHITE, DES MOINES HAS AN OFFER Former Algonlana Give the City ah Option on 162 Acres of Land for Cemetery Purposes, Ai. Adaws Has a Gasoline toatnaged $t,ooo Worth—dtheif Northwest News. Messrs. 3. S. Jones and I?. E. Smithj former Algottians, have made a propo^ sitioti to the city of Des Moines to sell a tract of 162 acres to It for $00,000 to be platted for a city cemetery. The land lies on Grand avenue, exactly three miles west from the court house, within the city limits, In connection with the offer they show some of the advantages of the tract over others, making a statement, signed by them, of a half column of solid nonpareil in the Register. The matter will come before the city council and is very likely to be favorably considered, as Des Moines is badly in need of added cemetery grounds. Gasoline Tank Explodes. As Al. Adams was going to press with his paper at Humboldt last Wednesday the gasoline tank in his office exploded, setting fire to everything on the ground floor at once, The foreman, Bert Minion, was severely burned in the face, but saved his eyes. Soon two streams of water played upon the flames and in half an hour the fire was out. The building is only damaged about $400 and the stock and fixtures about $600. Provided the presses are not materially damaged, insurance will just about cover the minimum loss. Al. says his paper will go right on as usual. The School Teacher Gets IIor Money. The supreme court has affirmed a decision by Judge Quarton. A school ma'am near Spirit Lake was engaged to teach school in the district for nine months. At the expiration of six months she was discharged, and suit was brought to recover the salary for the three months of the unexpired terra of the contract. Because the contract had not been formally signed by the president of the board the defendant sought relief from payment. As subsequent payments were under the terms of the contract the decision against the board is affirmed. New Telephone Lines. The Western Electric Telephone company will this week haye a line completed from Brltt to Forest City. This will take a large amount of work from the line to Algona, connections having been heretofore -made by way of Algona and Bancroft. Forest City has a local exchange with 60 patrons. Britt, which is headquarters for the company, is now connected with 200 towns. During all the recent storms of sleet the western electric was able to do business every day, although many wires were injured. An Important Decision. Judge Thomas has decided the Irwin tax case in Clay county in favor of the tax title owners and against the Irwin heirs, refusing to permit the latter to redeem. It was claimed that Irwin was insane and hence the tax deeds void. The decision Is far reaching in its effect, as the same kind of titles exist in this county and several of the northwestern Iowa counties, There are some 2,000 acres of land In O'Brien county including part of the town site of Sanborn that is affected by thedeclsion, The case will be appealed to the supreme court and tried anew. Buffalo Center Will Celebrate. • N, P. Johnson has built a four story, pressed brick hotel at Buffalo Center, equipped with steam heat and lighted with Welsbach gas lights, It will be opened Friday, Jan. 1, with a banquet and ball, which will follow a "Game Hunt" on Thursday with prizes, and a pigeon and clay blackbird shoot on both Thursday and Friday at which Iowa's crack shots will be present. Full program will be sent to anyone by C. E. Mallory or C. S, Johnson on request. A "JJlassey" Justice.

' . shall not put houses over the toe and fish from them.

The average yield of that harvested was 26 bushels per acre, by weight not oter 22 bushels. The total yield is not above 74,000,000 worth at 12 cents a bushel about $0,000,000.
