Then WHS the time the cranes got in their work. They were not long in taking advantage of the opportunity. They began picking me in the face with all their might. Of course their struggles frightened the mare worse than ever and she was jumping as only a blind horse could. I hung to the cranes till the blood was running down both sides of my face, when 1 had to drop them. 1 could not stop the mare till she had tired herself out and she did not get over her fright and nervousness for several days. THE rABMEBS' INSTITUTE. . "Dr. Gates is teaching the young Ideas of the state of Iowa how to shoot, bul when he is himself shooting he sadly misses the target. In a recent address before the Young Men's Christian ossocla turn at Des Monies he got Into such a 'lugubrious mood that he predicted all sorts of evils for this country. Whether He suffers from indigestion or gout is not told, but he is evidently soured on American affairs. With a boldness worthy of a better cause, he declared that the everlasting bow-wows are the very least we may expect in the near future. The masses, he remarked, are being crushed oy the Juggernaut of plutocracy, and the youngster las no longer any chance to win fame or fortune. "That is a sad picture. But the doctor would do well to come to New York for a week and look about. We have a little sunshine left in these regions, and are not entirely given over to despair. Genius is not downtrodden, and If a man has ability to make money the opportunity is not wholly wanting. Dr. Gates himself is a pretty good example of what may be accomplished by hard work, and it seems ratner hard for a man who has reached the top of the ladder to throw it over and declare that there is no longer any ladder in sight. "In this country there is always a ladder and always a chance to climb." IK THIS NEIGHBORHOOD. Emmetsburg had 25 men in jail last week Monday. Humboldt is going to have a five cent barber shop.

The Nevada Representative celebrated its 40th birthday. It is one of the most vigorously edited papers in the west, and still in its youth. It gives a little sketch of Nevada history. This recalls the fact that Nevada was once the' railway "jumping off place" for visitors to Algona. ., The democratic Emraetsburg Tribune talks about "what we need," at the opening of 1897. It sums up a lengthy editorial by saying; "A more stringent enforcement of the laws of the land would be a healthy stimulus to the social status." There is sound sense in this suggestion! The United States imported $322,000,000 of farm produce in 1896. How is that as a partial explanation of hard times? Congressman Dolliver has recommended Port C.

All the boys will agree with him. Frank A. Day is involved in a curious controversy at Fairmont, Minn. He was elected state senator from his district.

Swea City Herald: Mrs. May Benjamin of Algona came up New Year's eve to spend a few days with her brother,-J. A. Cronholm and family. Emmetsburg Tribune: Three Kossuth county druggists have taken out pharmacists' permits. The drug business must be booming in our neighboring county. The Meetings to He Held oil dny tttid Thursday Next—Amiunl Meeting of the County Agricultural Society. The farmers' institute will be held at the court house next Wednesday and Thursday. D. A. Kent will be present both days as conductor. He has no superiors. There will be no evening meetings, but both days will be put into solid discussion from morning to dark. If the weather continues good there will be a big attendance. These Institutes have been the best meetings of the year heretofore and the program promises a better one than ever this time. The program is as follows: The first settler north of Port Dodge and east of Chiekasaw county was Joseph Hewitt. He came to Clear Lake in July 1851. He had been an Indian trader among the Winnebagoes in Clayton county and was a typical frontiersman. As a pioneer he was the exact antipodes of Henry Lott. He was brave, rough, kind hearted, honest and unreserved. If his association with the Indians did not elevate them it did not, at least, make the path* way of oncoming civilization more difficult than it necessarily was. He lived to a ripe old age and his remains lie now on the claim he first took by the lake—laid to rest by pioneers whose respect and friendship he had won and held. Stories had come in 1850, to his eastern Iowa home, of plenty of buffalo calves and elk to be had by a beautiful after two other Sioux came and stayed over night, also appearing well die- posed. But the Winnebagoes knew what it all meant and Toshanaga was in suoh alartii that Hewitt locked the two Sioux up over night to quiet his fears. Next morning he let them loose and after breakfast they went to the Winnebagoes and bade them a friendly farewell, saying that they were about to leave the neighborhood. Instead of doing so, however, they went to the lake shore and sat down, remaining about two hours. They then went to the house of & O. Sirrine, about a half mile up the lake shore, and ground their knives and loaded their guns, remaining about until the middle of the afternoon About this time the Winnebago boy, Patchoka, had been sent Out to look foi* some horses,, and passed Mr. Sirrittes* house. He Was no sooner gone than the Sioux started out. NEW COtJffif BOAI Much Business fcofta at the J Session—Bridges Said to in.

In spite of rain and hard times the lake to the west. With the breaking of the spring of the following year he and James Dickinson set forth to investigate, spending 66 days on the trip from Strawberry Point, now a journey of 11 hours, and arriving in midsummer at the spot which was to be their future home. Hewitt. Capt. Hewitt he was called, was well known to all Kossuth pioneers. In 1857 he moved from Clear Lake to the then flourishing town of Irvington, living two years in a house between Dr. Armstrong's and the Kinzey Carlon farm, which burned later, and then a year or more south of the creek on the Sample farm. He owned a house in Algona, where Dr. Stull's home now is, part, we believe, of the present residence. He was stage driver in those days from Irvington to Clear Lake, a shrewd, and rather popular old man. His route lay north by Purcell's Point and so off east by Sexton to near Forest City and then down to the lake. Nothing but Bailey's web footed bulls could stand on Hancoci: county soil in those days. ,which caused the wide detour in the old stage route, but Irvington being Algona's chief competitor, the detour did not come as far west as the present metropolis, which had to be satisfied with a stub. Hewitt moved east aeain to the lake in 1860 or 1861. John Brainerd, who in 1857 founded On his return the boy again passed the house, but a few rods further a gun shot was heard and he fell from his horse.

Every premium has been paid in full, the total reaching the big sum of $622.99. Secretary Butler says that there were more individual premium winners this year than ever before. Getting premiums is worth while, as the record proves. A few stubs in his book show that one farmer got $27 another $26.60, and quite a number as as $12 to $18. One lady took and so on. A . $16.25, another $10.25 Mrs. music. They were Mr. and Elhanon Clark and descendants. The Armstong Journal says the invention for sorting out handfuls of coins is a good thing: "What depresses the market value of the invention is the scarcity of handfuls." premiums running ' over The bulk of the money paid for races went to county horsemen. The second day's races would have shown the same result if the weather had permitted the races to be given. The financial showing of the society the Clear Lake Independent, and who is now editor of the Boone Standard, has given a pleasing picture of Hewitt on his mail route: "He was 63 years of age, but strong as a man of 40, with ruddy face, bluff hearty manners and physically tough as a pine knot. In preparation for his winter journeyings it was his custom to set up in the fall oak poles at intervals of 300 yards ' their leafy tops being retained; and these were his guides when the storm howled across his path. His mail cart was canvas covered on all sides, with small portholes for the-reins to pass through, sockets for candles on the wooden supports, and plenty of fattv provisions. Thus armed, if his team gave out after nightfall, it was sheltered on the lee side of the canvas he lit his candles for warmth, ate his provisions and wrapped in buffalo robes stood out the siege till morning." Hewitt had been popular with the Winnebago Indians in Clayton countv who called him Nock-a-shooka, talked their language, and soon drew some of the boy's body. The Sioux had cut off the head and taken it with them. Hewitt at once put the remaining Winnebagoes into his wagon and sent them away with his hired man, the covers being fastened down. They were driven to where Marble Rock now is and there met Dickinson's team, which had been to Dyersville, 160 miles away, for provisions, and that turned back and took them to' Clarksville, where a man was hired to carry them further south. Major Williams overtook them at Iowa City and there had the/n taken to Muscatiue where they were put aboard a boat and taken north to the Winnebago reservation. The occurrence had filled the little Clear Lake settlement with alarm. Dickinson had at that time built a cabin a mile out in the prairie, and there Hewitt, the Strrines, and Collender gathered because of the unobstructed view in all directions. Fo four days the Indians did not appear but the scouts found fresh tracks made each night and knew that they were hovering about. On the fourth day 30 them came within 80 rods, and The board concluded its January i sion Thursday.

John aga, a Winnebago brave, was with him with two families during 1854. In June of that year a strolling band of Sioux appeared on the scene, killed a Winnebago lad of 16 years, Toshanaga's son, Patohoka, and occasioned the biggest scare among the white settlers that occurred in pioneer days. Not even the Spirit Lake massacre occasioned such wide spread alarm. _ How great the scare was may be judged from the fact that the historians still report that 600 Sioux were on the ground. Major Williams gives the exact facts. Upon hearing of the raid Iowa, where the Indians were said to be, and came upon four of them dashing along on their ponies dressed in full war costume. Of his interview he records: "Amongst the number was oos-o-me-nah, whom I knew well. I made him believe the whites were in pursuit of them in great force. He said they 'no hurt white man,' that they were hunting Sacs. I found their force to be 70 men although reported at from 600 to 1,200.
