The Keene-Hanford Company Arc Pralued Everywhere Along Their Route West. The Grand Rapids, Mich., Daily Herald devotes a column to Keene and Hanford in Louis XI. They played in Grand Rapids six weeks ago. The Herald says: In Keene we have an actor whose training and range of versatility is to be envied and ought to be emulated. He grasps with perfect art and the impersonation of reality, the age, the distemper and the superstition of the ambling tyrant. There is sway, influence, intensity and cold, precise exposition in this admirable creation of Mr. Keene's. The personality of the actor is entirely submerged in the part. Mr. Keene rose to the sublime pinnacles of tragedy without rant or force in the fourth act and the picture of groveling, cringing cowardice in the presence of the priest was most impressive. The death was also startlingly realistic. Mr. Hanford, ever an intelligent and vigorous player, was a manly and ideal Nemours and Mr Ahrendt a conscientious Paulo. Miss Hopkins was a graceful and winsome Marie and Miss Drofnah made a capital hit for her naturalness, naivette and sauciness as the peasant Jeanne. The production was superbly staged, correct in the minutest historic details and the company sufficient and capable. Mr. Keene and Mr. Hanford were recalled in an enthusiastic fashion at the end of every act. This afternoon "Richelieu" and tonight "Richard III." Little Harry Oliver, the 11-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. C. N. Oliver, who are well remembered former residents of Whtttemore, died at school in Des Moines last Thursday morning of heart failure, just after a very slight switching administered by the teacher 1 , Miss Mills. Mr. and Mrs. Oliver, the latter a daughter of Mrs. A, Sawvel of Algona, have lived in Des Moines now some years, but many acquaintances will be interested in the details of this sad happening. The Begtster gives them: It seems that the boy has been sub' ject to fainting spells ever since a bad fall on the ice four years ago. The teacher knew nothing of these spells, which were usually brought on by excitement or anger, and having received instructions from his parents to punish him if necessary to' make him obey, she switched him across the back of the legs with a little stick scarcely as big as a man's little finger and not two feet long. The class in the fifth reader was being heard and Harry was called upon to read. He rose, turned his back to the teacher, and began to read in mumbling tones. She told him to turn around and read properly. After a second or third warning, and repeated refusals to obey she called him to the front and switched him across the legs. She then turned to take him to his seat when he began to sink. She held him dp and dashed water in his face and placed him in his seat. She then turned to get anpther cup of water and he fell over in a swoon, from which he never recovered. • Coroner Ankeny was sent for. He made a thorough investigation of the affair and in talking to a Keglster reporter in the evening said: "Miss Mills is a teacher of extraordinary ability and one who is loved by all of her pupils. In my mind she is not at all to blame for the death of the boy. Hia physical condition was such that any excitement or anger was liable to cause his death at any time. She feels terribly about the matter, but I am sure that when the public understands the case she will be blamed by no one." The body of the unfortunate lad was taken in charge by Wells, the undertaker and prepared for burial. Not a single mark was found on his body and one could not tell by even the closest inspection where the switching had been administered. The funeral will be held from the residence on Capitol avenue this afternoon at 2 o'clock. STATEMENT OF THE TEACHER. DES MOINES, Jan. 7.—To R. V. Ankeny, Coroner Polk County, Iowa: Harry Oliver came into my school room as usual when school was called at 9 o'clock, At about 9:30 the fifth reader class was called and Harry was asked about the third or fourth one in the class. He turned in a disorderly way with his back toward me and began reading in a mumbling voice. I told him to turn around facing me and read louder. He did not improve his manner of standing nor did he raise his voice so that I could hear what he was reading.

Bancroft Register: Dr. Lacey of Lu- Verne again appeared before the county board this week with a bill for treating "paupers" aggregating $220, As evidence that he rates his services a trifle high, two Algona doctors recently attended a young man in the south part of the county who had a broken limb, and rendered a bill of $38, Dr. Lacy was first called in the, case, and after seeing the extent of the injury and temporarily bandaging it, demanded $150, or a guarantee for that amount before he would take the case, As the boy's parents could not possibly raise such a sum the trustees were appealed to and after an unavoidable delay of twenty-four hours assistance was se? cured from Algona. Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat, Dr, Preston, Jan. 18. _^ obedience, I said: " I will have to punish you if you do not read it .better." He began, as I remember it, with a slight smile on his face, and mumbled in the same tone. I then said: "Well, Harry, I guess you better come up here." He came without resistance. As he was coming to the front I reached for a stick which I had kept behind the picture above the board for some time, and I took hold of his arm and struck him across the back or legs four or five times. I then talked to him, asking if he could do it better now. He answered, "Well. I can't," once or twice, and I turned with him to go toward bis seat, As we came near my desk he began to sink and I held him up and put water on his face and then set him up in his seat. As I turned to get the cup of water he fell from hia seat and I lifted him up and put water on his face and head, I sent immediately for Mr. Turner, the principal, who. came and carried him to the hall and laid him down. Harry's brother, Eoy, was sent for, and he said to lay him down and he would soon be all right. We all worked with him constantly until the doctor said: "He is dead," FLOBENOE A. Miw-s, Teacher. G. A, TURNER (Witness). STATEMENT OF THE PARENTS. GRANT PARK, DBS MOINES, Jan. 1.— To the Coroner of Polk County, Iowa; I am fully satisfied that Harry's death was from heart failure, as he has on several occasions fainted away. The first time was four years ago, when be fell on the ice. He was born in Kossjuth county, Iowa, on Aug. 36, 1885, He has been strong and apparently healthy, but of a nervous and irritable temperment and hard to govern. We do not censure the teacher for punishing him, as I had told her to punish, him in school if it was necessary to make him mind, we can not think any punishment he got from the teacher was the cause of his death.

FOB time loans on real estate apply at Kossuth County State Bank. TOR THE FABMER8' INSTITUTE, A Suggestion as to the Value of I'oultry on the Farm.. The State Register says editorially: The Algona UPPEB DBS MOINES has an interesting lot of statistics affecting the poultry business in that city and county. In Algona three establishments have been kept busy handling and preparing for the markets the surplus poultry in and about that community. In one of these houses 80 and more men were employed. This item of employment is in itself a consideration. One of the houses bought 10,000 turkeys, 19,000 chickens, and 2,000 geese. The biggest turkey of the season weighed 33 pounds alive arid 20 pounds dressed. That bird brought considerable over $2. The average price paid for turkeys has been about $1, which is said to "beat hogs." Chickens have brought about 20 cents apiece. THE UPPER DBS MOINES estimates that the turkeys of Kossuth county brought $20,000 into circulation this season. The farmers of that county who have tried the profits of all kinds of farming seem to be unanimous in the belief that the poultry business is the most profitable. Of course, even the poultry business can be overdone. In a general sense, poultry pays best when there is just enough of it to pick up what would otherwise go to waste. These are good times for the people of Iowa to study all sorts and conditions of life. Poultry, the dairy, beet sugar and other lines of farming, or side farming, are to play a more important part than they have in the past. The great west can not go on forever increasing the corn crop and turning it into hogs and cattle. The staples are good, but there must be minor sources of profit devised if prosperity is to be something certain and permanent.

You told her you would come in and order them, but when you got to town you ran across an old acquaintance and got to talking and forgot all about the repairs until you got within about half a mile of home, when it suddenly flashed across your mind that you had forgotten those repairs. You remember how you promised her that you would not forget again if she would say nothing.
