All of Hurt nearly chose sides Saturday and had a glass ball shoot for the oysters, Rumors come filtering down that some of the shooters didn't break a target out of the ten. We shall publish the scores of Ed. Murtagh, Will. McDonald, Cark Coffen and some of the others if we can get them. All friends of D. A. Wallaca and family will be interested in the following note from Denver: We have rented a houso at above address for three months. Tho next move we make will be to Algona. The climate here is all right, but a person can't live on climate alone. Howard is doing first rate. The ladies having the banquet in charge for Friday evening will seat the tables for 200 guests. The people of town are invited to occupy all the places not taken by the visitors, the tickets being placed at 50 cents. All should plan to be present at 6 o'clock. The music and serving will begin at 6:30 promptly. The grangers had an animated debate Saturday and adopted the resolutions suggested last week, all but the one providing for paying hog cholera losses by taxation, When it was figured out how much of a tax the $15,000,000 loss of the past year would mean no one seemed to be so very anxious for it. The Odd Fellows will hold a memorial service at their hall, Sunday, at 2 o'clock, in 'honor of J, K, Fill, to which the public is invited. Mr, Fill was undoubtedly the oldest Odd Fellow in Iowa. It is thought that he belonged to Baltimore lodge, No. 1, which would put him among the founders of the order. J, P. Elwell presented a claim to the county board for $296, which was not allowed and which may be the basis of a law suit, It seems the county built a grade on the road by the Elwell farm and it proved to be some five rods in on bis land, The road has been put out where it belongs, but Mr. Elwell wants damages for the grade and muss. The Workman had a blow out at the Algona House last evening. Twenty- four were present and one of them tells us that the spread would have made the mouth of any crowned head in Europe water. The Woodmen meet next Tuesday evening to hold memorial services for Upohuron, the founder of the order. A special program is being prepared, The reading room association held its annual meeting Thursday evening and found itself in & flourishing condition, Those present reported a very general sentiment in favor of having question of a public library,, submitted to the people, in March, again. The old officers were re*§leqted, Th,e library and reading mm have bad a big patronage the past year, J< J. Ryan is getting in trim for the Up at Bancroft he "WB by his. pfa and be a Landlord MoMurray put up as fine a spread as has beeti lately Seen in these parts. Geo. E. Clarke got judgment by default at tho recent term of court in hij suit against tho Calhinaft swamp land clouds, in which he attached all the clouds in the county. His Judgment is for $200 damages and the clouds to ZOO forties will be sold to pay it. This will make the expense $1 of $2 to ft forty and the owners wilt hatre a chance to get off cheap. This will end the quit clttim deed business at $40 a deed. Tho county mutual Insurance company held its annual meeting yester* dav at the court house. There was a large attendance. The old officers were re-elected, C. B. Hutchins, president; Ed. Donovan, vice president; Edwin Blackfordj secretary; C. C. Chubb, treasurer. No business was transacted, but many matters of importance were discussed. The secretary's report was Very complete showed the county mutual to money saver to the insured. Tho Jake Garman case had two sides to it. The Pierce brothers had Jake arrested, but Jake had them fined, which must be cosidered the meat of the matter. They had him cited to nppearin Atgona, but he had them haled to Sexton first where they got go each and costs. Jako was not prosecuted The facts seemed to bo that Jake owed the Pierces, and when they couldn't get their money they decided to tnko it out of his skin. Ho finally got a gun and they retired. The State Register notes Wm. G. Clarke's coming to Des Moines: Mr. E. S. Wishard, for twenty years a member of tho Des Moines bar, announces that he has formed a law partnership with Mr. Wm. G. Clarke recently of Lincoln, Neb. Tho firm name will be Wishard & Clarke, Mr. Clnrko Is a brother of the late Whiting S. Clarke of this city, and of Col. Chas. A. Clarke of Cedar Rapids. He will be remembered by members of the bar. The new,firm is entitled to the confidence of tho public, and will have the good wishes of all, The county medical association met at the Thorington yesterday, Drs. Kitiney, Peters and Paul coming in from the neighboring towns. Dr. Morse was elected president for the year; Dr. Kenney, vice, president; Dr. Peters, secretary and treasurer. The association endorsed a bill to be urged in tbe coming legislative session, which provides that till men entering the profession after January, 1899, shall have a diploma showing four years' study and that besides that they shall pass a state examination. Iowa is behind many states in the matter of requirements for the practice of medicine. The supreme court of the United States has recently decided a case of great interest to Kossuth land owners. It holds that no swamp land title of any kind is good as against a patent issued to other parties by the government. Our state supreme court has gone so far the other way that it has held that land could be claimed as swamp even though it had never been selected, overruling Judge Carr in a Kossuth county case. This United States decision settles a lot of titles all over this section where patents had issued to the Milwaukee road to land claimed as swamp. The remains of J. K. Fill arrived in Algona this morning for burial. He died at his daughter's home in Milwaukee Sunday. Mr. Fill was 85 years old, born in Bavaria, coming to this country in 1838. He came with his family to Kossuth county in 1860, taking a farm in Irvington, where he lived until 1873. He then came to Algona and opened his tailor shop. He was a genial man to meet and will be pleasantly remembered by all who 1$new him. Mrs. Haupt came from the west yesterday, and others of the children are present for the burial. His remains are placed by those of Mrs. Fill, who died something over a year ago. On account of bfg expenses the Bel- shazzar entertainment did not net much profit. But in every other way it was a commendable, success. The second evening witnessed by far the best performance, as was to have been expected, but the audience was liberal with applause at the first rendition and enjoyed some fine music. The choruses throughout were excellent and the solos, many of them would have done credit to professional singers. Prof. Forde bad done lots of work, the stage settings were splendidly arranged, the best of our local singers had parts, Miss Cass in the upper notes had a voice that was sweet and clear, Miss Amy Hedrick furnished a fine accompanyment. We hope that every season will witness a. revival of these home 'entertainments. Only tfc« best traveling attractions have surpassed those given this winter. ANb 8ILEN66. by South At- A £e<mlW* Cfeftt-ta rlcftn Aiecnliat chatm which South African ecenety possesses is that of &«meyal solitude and is «> char* Which is diffetently felt by different ttttrifl. f her e ate many who :fiM the Sesence of what Homer calls "the ttch ^•otksof men" essential to the perfection of a landscape. Cultivated fields, gardens tod orchards, farmhouses dotted here and there, indications in one form or another of human life and labor, do not merely give a greater variety to every prospect, bat also impart an element which evokes the sense of sym' pathy with our fellow men and excites a whole group of emotions Which the contemplation of nature, taken by itself, does not arottse. No one is insensible to these things, and some find little delight in any scene from which they are absent. Yet there are other iaiuxls to Which there is something specially solemn and impressive in the untouched and primitive simplicity of a country which stands noW just as it came from the hands of tho Creator. The self sufflcientncss of nature, the insignificance of man, the mystery of n universe which does not exist, as our ancestors fondly thought, for the sake of inau, but for other purposes hidden from us and forever undis- coverablc—these things arc more fully realized and more deeply felt when one traverses an immense wilderness which seems to have known no change since the remote ages when hill and plain and valley were molded into tho forms \ve see today. Feelings of this kind powerfully affect tho mind of the traveler in South Africa. They affect him in the Karroo, where the slender line of rails, along which his train creeps all day and all night across long stretches of brown desert and under the crests of stern, dark hills, seems to heighten by contrast tho sense of solitude—a vast and barren solitude interposed between the busy haunts of men which he has left behind- on the shores of the ocean and those still busier haunts whither he is bent, where the pick and hammer sound upon the Witwatersrand and the palpitating engine drags masses of ore from the depths of the crowded mine. They affect him still more in the breezy highlands of Matabeleland, where the eye ranges over an apparently endless succession of undulations clothed with tall grass or waving wood, till they sink in the blue distance toward the plain through which the great Zambezi takes its seaward course.—Professor James Bryce, M. P., in Century. FIRST LOVE. ' ' ' There is heaven in the throbbing hearts of maiden and of youth When there's not a songster in the land that sings a noto of ruth I It is when they meet in purity in first love's hallowed bliss, Where the twilight and tho darkness meet and kiss as lovers kiss! There's a curso upon humanity, pronounced at Adam's fall- There's a period in an Edenland, however, for us all— And it'a during love trysts of our youth, while feeling love's first bliss, Where the darkness and the twilight meet and kiss as lovers kiss! —Memphis Commercial.
