Our prices are the lowest. WE WILL NOT BE UNDERSOLD. G. L. Galbraith & Co. Humboldt county has another de faulting county treasure!'. Scott Llnd ley is short from $10,000 to $16,000, for which his bondsmen will be held. He fed cattle and failed at that. Then he speculated on the Chicago board to get even. He has been county treasurer three years. Frank Bicknell in the Capital says the primary election system is what is responsible for him. "Mr. Lindiey," said a resident of the county, "was one of your 'good fellows,' who had no other occupation the summer he was nominated but to travel over the county and get voters interested in his case. He had a pleasing address and people did not stop to think that he had no business ability and didn't know how to handle .money, once it was in his hands. He wanted votes so badly, in order to give him a job, that they gave him what he wanted and made him county treasurer. Now they have just what they might expect." Hon. J. M. Schlelcher Hurt. The Livermore Gazette reports an accident to the father of M. E. Schleicher, who is well known in Algona: J. M. Schleicher has some well behaved horses, which he often allows to run loose in his barn. When he goes to feed, however, they will, at a word, hustle to their respective stalls. Not long since he entered the barn and called to them to get into position, without observing that the horses must use the room he occupied to get there. It was too late when he saw his mistake, and one of the horses crowded against him heavily as it backed out of the stall, and he was just able to get to the house, without any wind in his lungs worth mentionipg. Dr. Malin looked him over and found two broken ribs, beneath which beat a thankful heart that there were no more in that condition. He is all right again now. A Self-rocking Cradle. The city of Armstrong is full of talent of the right kind. An Armstrong man has invented a baby cradle tha^will rock itself. We had expected something like this from West Bend, but Armstrong gets the honors. Ernest Springer is the inventor, and his name is exactly suited to his invention. He can start his cradle so.it will rock for 24 hours without stopping. He says it can be easily stopped when the baby goes to sleep and as easily started when it wakes up. Mr. Springer says he intends to make it more simple yet before he applies for a patent. The Journal says that a great many will be needed in Armstrong soon, No innttef What youf feaftner doe«, Remain ttrbane and bland, Ddn't eveh say his gafte is one You cannot understand: The inore iriisplays that he may inakd .

COUNTER, opppstte Kossuth Cowty flrat-olftss meals or lunches, for A Big Shoot at JLu Verne. A shooting contest was arranged on New Year's day between a Livermore and Lu Verne team, to come off in the near future, at Lu Verne, The Livermore team will be Dennis Zigrang, Elmer Hewitt, J. P. Sherman and Anton Bossing, against the Lu- Verne team composed of Reub Buell, Chas. Konarska, Darr and Goodwin. Ten live birds each. The losers are to pay for an oyster supper, etc. The Livermore Gazette says: The "etc." is by no means to be the smallest part of the entertainment, either. Corn Not Good Fuel. Professor Curtiss of Ames says it is folly to burn corn, As one ton of coal is equivalent, as a fuel, to six and one- half tons, or 182, bushels of ear corn, it may thus be seen that corn at five cents a bushel is dearer to burn than hard coal, and very much dearer than soft coal, _ _^_ Algona Can Use a Lot, The Chicago & Northwestern .company have erected a large conservatory at West Chicago and another north of Chicago, from which they intend to send out flowers and plants to ornament the spaces around the depots along their various lines, Referred to Pro. GulUxson, Etnmetsburg Tribune: What is state oil Inspector for, anyway? he has to deal with, he says, Is to its explosive capacity. It way burn or not; may be one-half water-^that is none of bis business, so long as It is explosive proof. _ Another In the United States. Armstrong Journal; Geo, W. Sanna, the L.U Verne banlter, has awarded the contract for a $10,000 dwelling bowse, Pew, if any towns, the ilge of LuVerne can boast of dwellings costing that amount. Some Arc Fitted For Life, and Others Are Unfitted by College Training. Eev. Charles H. Parkhurst, D. D. , in his paper to youug inea iii Tho Ladies' Home Journal, discusses ' ' Shall We Send Our Boy to College?" answering the query -with the assertion, "That depends a great deal on the boy. " He announces. himself to be a thorough believer iii the college, but holds that "it might not bo best for him (our boy) to go to college; it might not be best for tho community that he should. College oau flt a man for life, and also it can unfit him. There are styles of education, that disqualify the student for doing what he is competent to do, without qualifying him to do that which he might, like to do, but for which ho lacks and always will lack the prerequisites. As a general principle, the more a man knows the better, but so long as the present order of things continues a great amount of very ordinary work will require to be done, and ordinary people wtll do ordinary work better than extraordinary people will and be a great deal more comfortable while doing it. .Hordes of both sexes are entering college for the reason that they do not enjoy doing commonplace things. The result is that commonplace things are left undone, and uncommonplace things fare still worse. Agriculture is the material basis of a nation's strength and prosperity. We could dispense with either lawyers, doctors or ministers better thau we could with farmers. "Probably we should not quarrel so much if there were fewer students of the law, should not basick so much if there were fewer students of medicine, and should not be so wicked if 'thero were fewer students of theology. All of these could contribute liberally to the ranks of the agriculturalists with advantage to the professions and to tho grain and vegetable markets. I am not disparaging anybody, neither am I saying that it would not be a good thing, in itself considered, if every one, however material or menial his occupation, could receive all that the finest school or college training could confer, but that is not practicable at present and never will be till people get over thinking that there is a disgrace attaching to tho doing of ordinary things.

The old coaching days, as far as convenience for travel was concerned, were the dawn of the great days of our present rapid means of communication. The 70 years or so in which mail coaohea waxed and flourished .and finally died out before the incursion of railways and steam engines have a decided flavor of romance attached to them, and no doubt the coming and going of stagecoaches lent a certain amount of color and interest and life to the country places and towns through which ran the great main coaching roads, The Bath road, the Dover road, the York road were highways of communication along which rolled the heavy private coaches and chariots of the country magnates, and the stagecoaches with their steaming horses passed the various stopping places with the regularity of clockwork. These stagecoaches, with their complement of ooaclunen and guards, afforded endless subjects of interest and illustration to the artist and the literary men of the day, Imagine Charles Dick. ens without BtttgeoQWhos aud denuded pf all bis yivi* descriptions, of the scenes such as those iu the yard of the White Bart inn, High stveej, Borough, in "Pickwick, " or of the wail cp*ob on the Pover road iu "A Tale of Two Cities," It is- difficult for the present geawatipft to realise the fatigue and the Wintry cold Of suohl9»& Journeys, When frpsen feet were enY»iPP«4 in ft " 1 ' de TAX SALE NOTICE.
