Come and see me, Sheriff Samson had an experience in St. Louis last week which has given him an unfortunate and undeserved notoriety. He went south Monday to arrest one Lester Stevens, indicted by the last grand jury for seduction. Stevens rode at the races at Bancroft last summer, worked for Geo. Holloway and S. Higley, and is well known up north. Mr. Samson got his requisition papers at Des Moines and sent them on to Jefferson City, Mo., to be honored by the governor there and then forwarded to St. Louis, where he went direct and had Stevens held. Stevens agreed to come without papers, but the sheriff there advised Mr. Samson to wait for his papers, as some of Stevens' friends might get out papers for him on the way homo and get him away. Accordingly Stevens was left in the city jail until the time cavne to start north. Before the hour set Mr. Samson decided to take a later train and went to the police headquarters and notified the policeman who seemed to be in charge. The man's dignity was offended in some way and he replied that he didn't need any sheriff from Iowa to come and tell him his duty. Sheriff Samson responded that he hadn't come to tell him his duty, but that he could give him points on courtesy. The words worn no sooner out than the man with a star started for him with his fists up. At that our sheriff decided to take care of himself and he met his assailant with a good, square rap in the face. The other policemen standing near jumped in then and shoved Mr. Samson in a cell, where he was kept fifteen minutes.- When he was let out the policemen had let Stevens go. Further investigation showed that the policemen the day before had taken Stevens to the race track, where he had made arrangements for shipping his horse, and that they had also assisted him in getting some money orders cashed. The impression is that Ste venshada stand-in with some of the force, and that if there was any loophole they would be glad to let him go The St. Louis Post-Dispatch gavl a very sensational report of the affair, charging that Sheriff Samson was drunk. Reports were also sent to the Chicago dailies and have attained a wide circulation. As a matter of fact he has not touched liquor at all for over a year, and did not touch it at St. Louis Mr. Samson has retained Clarke & Cohenpur and steps are being taken to investigate the whole affair fully.

J. Sprague, is in again to wait till court meets in March for threatening to pummel him again, Lem Stockwell gives us notice that the arrangements for the North .Iowa Veteran association meeting at Clear Lake are completed. It will be held June 15-17 next. Walter Tellier is out on crutches these days. While wrestling some weeks ago he had a bone in his leg broken, and is having a slow time waiting for it to mend. Milton Starr, who was chairman of the committee of arrangements for the editorial meeting, is entitled to much credit for its success. He did lots of work, the bulk of it, in fact. Dr. Peters was down from Burt last week to see Mrs. Craig Calkins, who is now out of danger after a terrible struggle from which it was thought she could not possibly recover. Next Sunday Rev. Dr. Jackson will exchange with Rev. Miller. There will be a celebration of the Holy Eucharist at 11 o'clock. Evening service at 7:30 p. m. All are cordially invited. Addison Fisher says his dog has been gone some ten days. But he don't think the recent legal discussion has had anything to do with the disappearance. He says the dog wasn't worth stealing. Motion will be made Friday for new trial in the Plumley—Nicoujin case. This is the case decided a few weeks ago, when the work done on the Nicoulin house by S. I, Plumley was in controversy. The end of the Hamby dog case is not yet, The Browns have brought action of replevin to secure possession of the canine in controversy, It will be resisted and Hamby will attempt to prove that it is after all his dog, The Des Moines Capital says: Thomas W.

Rev, Landis will find himself in demand as toast-master all over northern Iowa. The Webster City Tribune says: "They have a Baptist minister up there who is the best and jolliest toast-master that ever stood at a table, but Geo. Roberts and some of the boys were enough for him in their responses." The oil heater under the big coffee urn at the Gilt Edge cafe exploded yesterday morning at 4 o'clock, doing considerable damage. But for the presence of the restaurant night keeper the building would have been burned. A partition was knocked out, the room well sooted up and the coffee urn demolished. A curious reminder of old times is the certificate of membership of the late J. K. Fill in Willian Tell lodge of Baltimore, No. 4. It is dated April 4, 1843, and is 54 years old. Mr. Fill carefully preserved it, and it is doubtful now if an older certificate of membership could be found in the entire order of Odd Fellows. The new school building was occupied Monday by 116 pupils, three rooms Doing opened. Miss Mclntyre, sister of Miss Edna-Mclntyre the milliner, is .n charge of one, as Grace Gilchrist could not accept the position. This uts the average in the high school )uilding down to 44 to the room, which "s still a big allowance. THE UPPER DES MOINES office is now decorated with a pair of shears that will take a column at a clip. M. Doxsee brought them over after using them for hia display in honor of he editors. Of all his window designs, lis" Country Press" seems to us to lave the most sentiment associated v'lth it. Long may the "press" lourish. Bad proof reading is responsible for he mixing of the Woodmen and Workmen in an item in our last issue. Ref- rence was made to memorial services or Upehurch, who was founder f the ancient order of United Workmen. With the Redmen, Woodmen nd Workmen all booming in Algona it s a puzzle sometimes to know which is vhich. The W. C. T. U. of Algona has peti- loned congress to pass three bills: 'he "Philips" bill, the "Broderick" ill, and the "Gillett-Pratt Anti-Gam)ling" bill. J. P. Dolliver replies that he has presented the petition to the house. Representative Maynehas also been asked to use his influence against the "manufacturers'"bill. -Heanswers that he will do so. » The Decorah Republican reprinted THE UPPER DES MOINES' article on the Winnebago .Indians, and an old settlar writes to that paper to correct one statement. It is about the exact location of the two saloons " Sodom" and "Gomorrah," and is comparatively unimportant. Another writer in the Postville Review corrects the first writer on one point, and quite a discussion of early history is going on. A curious law question will be debated Friday. C. M. Doxsee and F. S. Norton have mechanics' liens for the lumber and hardware in the little building C. L. Lund put on his farm last. The building stands on a quarter that did not sell for more tban it was mortgaged for. They want their lien to extend to all the farm so that the money paid for other quarters can be applied to their claim. . It will be resisted. The question is how much land does a mechanic's lien cover. The Bancroft Register tells about the lady .stage driver on the Seneca mail route. Op her regular trip she was met by a runaway horse. The horse she was driving took fright and whirled, throwing her out head foremost, her feet caught in the blankets and she was dragged some distance over the rough road, The rear wheel of the buggy passed over her body, and she was otherwise bruised about the head, hands, and arms. Dr, Walters was called but found no serious in juries. The Des Moines Saturday Review has a note of interest about " Shore Acres," the play to be given in Algona in March: "James 'A.. Herne originally produced 'Shore Acres' at MeVicar's theater in Chicago on Monday, May 28, 1892, • Its fifth birthday will be celebrated in the same city and the event is to be made memorable in the theatrical annals of that city, 'Shore Acres' continues one of the most successful plays now before the public, and Mr, Herne has gained! a fortune with it." Although the opera house company guarantee the Keene-Hanfprd company $75 more than they did Whiteside and more than any previous entertainment that has been in Algona they put the seats at the same prices ohargedbefore. In no city could the people hear this company for less than from $1,50 down. WlUteside objected to playing in Algona at less than $1.60, These high class entertainments are brought bere and made cheaper than our people pay for them after being to the expense O f traveling to a city to see them, It is the unanimous verdict that the banquet last Friday evening at the opurt house cpuld not weU be improved upon. The visitors were very h in their praise, The ladies of Congregational church had it in charge, and we learn made about $75, "^ materials having been largely Mrs, J.
