Sehfttor Chubb wishes to confide the discussion he has proposed entirely to the question of the effect upon the debtor; of the decline in prices. He Is correct in saying that this is the meat of the whole matter 4 , but we cannot agree with him that the other questions suggested are hot of sufficient importance to be worthy of consideration. In spite of the array of authorities he cites THE UPPER DES MOINES is entirely ready to present its argument in support of the proposition that the farm price of farm produce, taking into view a sufficient period to overcome temporary depressions, such as we had in 1878 and have now, has not gone down to any such extent as the tables he refers to would suggest. The settlement of this matter is an important preliminary .to the discussion of the fall in prices as it affects the debtor, especially as it is the farmer who, hereabouts, is .especially interested. The second question suggested was, "Has the general'decline in prices in 25 years been at the expense of the farmer and laborer out of debt?" Mr, Chubb says that strictly speaking there is no such thing as a farmer or laborer out of debt. The object of this quos* tion - was to bring out clearly the relative benefits that have accrued to various classes from the decline in prices, aside from the matter of paying debts, leaving that for a separate discussion. It is certainly important in any discussion of the decline in prices, to know where that decline has taken place, and who on the whole has been the gainer. THE UPPER DES MOINES still thinks that all three of its propositions should be discussed, but if Senator Chubb wants to consider the single question of the effect of a decline in prices on the debtor, and will agree not to assume all through that there has been a steady decline in the price of farm produce, THE UPPER DES MOINES is willing to go into that question alone. The time when this discussion will be published and the questions to be discussed will be announced in due her husband and they have started housekeeping in the house owned by the John Paul Lumber company. Mr. Griffon was taken with typhoid fever while going from Algona to Whittemore, and was brought back on the train. Britt Tribune: Ambrose A. Call Writes ah interesting letter of early history for the Algona UPPER DES MOINES. Rev* Innes spoke in Spirit Lake Sunday. The Beacon announced him as "one of the brightest preachers in this section." Frank Bailey has shipped 2,175 rabbits from Whittemore. He paid five cents for awhile, but now they are worth only two. The Whitteniore Champion says: W. S. Wilcox is taking a month's vacation from the egg business in Algona and is visiting in the east, LedyardLeader: MissLennie Bright was taken sick the first of the week and has closed her school and gohe home to Algona for a few days. The board of supervisors is still without a county physician in Palo Alto. The office seems to be going a begging unless the stipend is raised. George and Ben Nichol, from Algona and LuVorne respectively, with their ladies, were the guests of Mr. and Mrs. Fetterly last Sunday, says the Livermore Gazette. Emmetsburg Reporter: Al. Falken- hainer of Algona was nn Emmetsburg visitor on last Saturday morning. He came in the interest of the Keene entertainment. A farmer near Armstrong loaded a car with corn last week. One of the grain buyers offered him 8| cents per bushel, which he refused, and shipped it himself, hoping he might do a little better. After paying the freight he had two cents left. Not two cents a bushel, but two cents on the' carload of corn. The Journal vouches for this. Blue Earth City Post: Fay Reed of Algona, Iowa, came up to Blue Earth City last Wednesday and remained until Friday morning. He came up to visit his friend,, C. A. Smith, and take a look at Charley's fine string of thoroughbred runners just received. The little "grayhounds" captured Fay, and no wonder, for they are good horses and he knows a good horse when he sees it. ment and these debts must be paid. We are not repudlators. The railroads of the country taka $1,000,000,000 out of us each year, and while Jones says he pays the freight, the farmer always finds it added in when he pays for his goods. Just so with the merchant, even his advertising in your" paper is ah expense that is added to the cost of the goods. The railroads owe $6,000,000,000 and if it is ever paid the farmers and miners will pay it, if not, they will pay the interest on it forever, "A farmer out of debt," strike it out. Your third proposition is all right. If you can agree on these propositions put them in any form you like. C. C. CHUBB. season. KEENE'S EIOHAED III. Whittemore Champion: Reported it fine. . Corwith Crescent: "Mitch" pronounced it fine. Estherville Democrat: It was a great show and we feel well repaid for our trip. Britt Tribune: They all pronounce the play as strictly first class in every respect. LuVerne News: Keene, as the longheaded, double-faced villain, could not be surpassed. Spencer Reporter: The Spencer parties'who visited Algona Saturday evening last to hear Keene in Richard III., report a splendid time. Wesley Reporter: Keene, as Richard III., few who saw him will ever forget. It was the acting of a master, acting that has life and that will live for years in the memory of his auditors. "We see too little of such noble characters, would there were more. Sheldon Mail: A party visited Algona Saturday evening to see and hear the eminent actor, Thomas Keene, in Richard III. The enjoyment of the excursion and entertainment were enhanced by the courteous and accommodating special service furnished the party by the Milwaukee railway. Emraetsburg Reporter; As usual everybody was expecting something very fine and strange to say not a person seemingly was disappointed in his expectation. In our estimation Keene is the greatest actor that we ever saw, and comes nearer to carrying out Hamlet's instruction to the players than any other actor that we have had the pleasure to listen to, He had excellent support throughout, but next to Keene came Lawrence Lowell, as the Puke of Buckingham.

Old friends of J. W. Bartlett will read this note from a recent letter with interest: I often pity you poor north- ers who have to suffer with 15 to 30 degrees below zero when I am freezing myself at 15 above and burning as much coal as I used to in Iowa, and for nearly as many months each year. I think my blood is so thin it wouldn't stain white paper, for when a gentle breeze at about 20 to 30 above stakes me I nearly " perish," and you know I wasn't built that way in "the best state in the union, "even if Texas is a fine state. Yours, j. w. BARTLETT. SENATOE OHTTBB'S PLAN. To the Editor: Permit me to thank you for your generous offer to devote so much of your space to the discussion of these important subjects, and I cheerfully accept your proposition trusting we may be able to make it profitable to your patrons. It is a big question to discuss in a single column, and if you will allow me to suggest some change in your proposition, I think we might be able to get at the real issue with more satisfaction. You say we are not very far apart when we agree on a definition of terms. Let us make these points on which we differ as plain as possible and discuss only those points on which we disagree.

The dangerous illness of Thos, Gilbride, noted last week, terminated fatally Wednesday. Funeral services were held at the Catholic -church Saturday morning at 11 o'clock, after which the remains of one of Kossuth's pioneers were laid to rest. Mr. Gil bride catne to Algona in 1857, and lived in town two years, He was a native of Ireland, born April 11, 1831, coming to this country in 1856. He then returned to DeKalb county, 111., coming back to Kossuth in 1865 in company with Patrick Kain. He had preempted the claim where he has since lived, before, and now built a cabin, and 1869 was married to Ann Stokes. For nearly 30 years he has lived in this cabin, for when he built his large new home, he framed the cabin in, making one room of it, "to die in," he said at the time. He wanted to and did die in the old home of his first beginnings. For some years Mr. Gilbride has been in failing health. Ho went to Chicago two years ago for treatment. Almost his last appearance in public was at the old settlers' meeting of that year, when he talked of early times. He had a lively wit, and the gift of speech to a marked degree, and none of the first comers could tell more entertainingly of the trials and amusements of pioneering than he could. He was a genial, friendly, large-hearted man, and his death will be sincerely mourned by all. May he rest in peace. MRS. CHARLES H. SLAQLE. . A more sudden and untimely death has not lately been recorded than that of Theresa A. Slagle, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Aug. Zahlton. She was in usual good health last week Tuesday, when a slight throat trouble was noticed. Friday evening she died, cerebral meningitis being the cause. The funeral was held at her home Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. Southwell officiating. Mrs. Slagle was born at the Zahlton home north of town Nov. 18,1860. In 1879 she was married and four children haye been born, two of whom are living. She was well known by all the pioneer children in Algona, and esteemed by all. In her home she was a model. She is the third of Mr. and Mrs. Zahlton's children to die at the beginning of life. The sympathy of all the old settlers go out to them in their bereavement, and also to Mr. Slagle and the two motherless little ones.

WEBSTER CITY, Feb. 12.—Special: Two men claiming to represent the firm of Joseph Lewis Sutton & Co., Minneapolis, have been operating in this section, and complaint comes from Pocahontas county that they are working a confidence game on the farmers. J. J. Bruce of that place holds • one of their contracts. It was . made by J. Lewis Sutton and a man calling himself W. J. Blake. Their mode of operation is simple. They solicit a man to become an agent of their firm, or only represent it, allowing the privilege of purchasing agricultural implements, etc,, at cost. A contract to this effect is drawn up and three copies of it are made, all of which the farmer signs. The first one is kept by himself, the second by the traveling man and the third is ostensibly made to send to the house. It is the latter which turns up in the form of a promissory note for $60. J. J. Bruce, who holds one of the contracts, is advertising for the men and will prosecute if he can get any trace of them. They are working all over Iowa. A LOCAL HOP- OHOLEBA OASE. Amandus Studer Has a Scheme for SaviiiB Hogs-A Cheap Remedy. Amandus Studer of Prairie told the Wesley Reporter last week of his experience with sick hogs; Last year, he On opening up the provision package for lunch the dog was on hand, as usual, for his portion. Thinking how quietly he had seated himself when the Indian overtook me in the storm and then had waited without any seeming preferance as to Which one of us might ride the pony away With the eatables, which he was sure to follow, all interest in him was lost on tny part and he was left to take care of himself from how on. > Being seated on a boulder I carefully watched along down the lake shore to the grove and then about the timber and brush in front for my missing man who had run away and left me, and who I was sure was lurking about. Finally noticing something in the brush, that at first appeared to be a stump, but after watching it closely for a short time was seen to move, I knew it was he. Thinking it would be much safer to have him with me than following on my track I signalled him to come up, and after several attempts and many stops on his part, he finally reached me. and squatted down on a rock near by. While away he had cleaned up his face and came back appearing very much the same as when we were at work on the map the day before. When offered something to eat he was rather slow in accepting, and seemed somewhat surprised, but soon took to it in real Indian fashion without further ceremony. He now became very talkative, and I learned for the first time that my guest and map-maker was none other than Umpashotah, and nothing now was left undone on his part in making himself agreable. During our stay here I learned many Sioux words, names of animals, numerals, etc.. making quite an addition to my small stock on hand, which helped out in our conversations afterward. He took quite an interest in my double barreled gun and wanted to know how it wa's loaded. One barrel being loaded with shot, and having none with me, I took out an ounce ball that fitted it and showed it to him, which seemed to be satisfactory. He told me that he also wanted to go to Mankato and would go with me, which I urged him to do, although well knowing that I would not be likely to suffer from too much sleep on the way. All being ready we were off on the trail leading north, with him in the lead where every motion could be seen. When getting opposite the heavy black walnut timber in the grove south of Silver Lake the trail turned to the west and entered the woods. Not knowing where it went to and fearing it might lead to an Indian camp, I stopped and asked him: "Why do we not keep on going north in place of going west?" He told me there was a stream we could not cross without getting wet and so we must go around the lake. Not knowing how this was I thought it best to follow him, however unsafe to do so, as it would not do to show any fear or distrust, and I told him to go on. After travelling some little ways in the dark lonely woods he stopped and called my attention to some crows on a tree top in front and asked me to shoot one. When told to shoot one himself he appeared to be very much amused at the thought of his killing one, as it was at not all probable he could have done so with his old rifle in making 20 shots. In my condition of mind there was no time to be wasted in the woods so we hurriedly passed on through, making the trip of a mile or more, to me, of greater anxiety than ever travelled before. When we reached the outer edge we noticed a flock of mallard ducks in a small pond at the edge of the trail. He again stopped, and wanted me to shoot one for supper He was answered if he would shoot I would, and so slipping up under cover, within easy range, I told him to fire when I counted and said three, which he fully understood. At the word he distance from a small oak tree where the pony could be tied and as the air was quite chilly I took the windward side of the fire, next to the tree, While he was to have the opposite side. Night had now come on and after supper we prepared our camping places. Using the saddle and all loose articles for a pillow and then spreading out the blankets over the bed of dry grass I certainly had a very fine preparation for sleep, while he on his side had plenty of grass. After quite an interesting talk, with a jumble of Sioux and English words and many signs he took out his pipe for a smoke, while I quietly thought over what had taken place and figured out what tnust be done to free myself of his company without harm, if possible, to either. He had tried and catne near plundering me through fright at first, then by meeting me in war costume all alone in the storm. Now he had assumed the character of a friend and no one could ask for a more willing companion to assist and do all that he could to make the time pass by pleasantly, than he had done. The meaning was easily to be understood, and when he took his empty gun and his hatchet some six rods away and laid them down in the grass I knew full well that it all was intended to make me feel secure and enjoy a good night's rest regardless of what might be found in the morning if lucky enough to escape serious harm. The pony j was tied up for the night, my gun was laid on the blankets just back of where I was intending to lie, so that when the blankets were turned up over me it could not well be taken out, and I was ready for the all night watch. He on his side had taken his last smoke and then told me he was very tired and sleepy and so curled down on his bed of grass and soon fell asleep. Lying down I brought the blankets over me in such a way as to nearly cover my face, only leaving a small place to look out and with my revolver handy for great sleeping farce com- si • fired and missed as I was sure he would. When the ducks had risen some 30 feet above the water the shot barrel of my gun was fired, killing one, which fell in the pond some distance from shore. I tried to have him eo out and get it, which he refused to do saying the water was too cold. This proved to be fortunate, as he was not able to find out but that it had been killed with a single bullet. This was my chance to guy him a little and impress upon his mind that he was a very poor shot, telling him that he did not hit one while sitting in the water while he had seen me shoot one flying, and as he understood it, with a ball. If he had an .y doubts, when he saw me reload with the large ball I had shown him, they were all removed, so that from now on he manifested much greater respect for the wasecha with whom he was travelling. For some reason, not , —, understood at the time, he would not said, I lost 68 head, but this year out of | „ a ,Jl! B gun ' and did nob while he a herd of 45 I only ios't one.

At about 10 o'clock, perhaps, he was sleeping very soundly, judging from the noise, when I too being very tired and sleepy fell asleep as he did, and if an outsider had been present it might have been difficult to have told which one was having the soundest sleep. It was not long after this, however, before his sleep became disturbed and he quietly raised up to a sitting position and took another smoke, which seemed to break up any sleep on my side. Thinking it had gone quite far enough to suit me I too woke up and stirred up the fire, when he suddenly became very sleepy again and soon dropped off into a sound and noisy sleep. Again about 1 o'clock, thinking I was asleep, he rose up, looked about and was permitted to go still further with his plan when it seemed best for me to wake up again, much to his surprise. Again, after taking asmoke, he was sleepy and was soon in a sound sleep, and so was I apparently in the same kind of sleep until about 4 o'clock, when he again became disturbed and had to get up. This time I slept until he had passed around toward the pony out of my sight when again my sleep was broken, much to his disappointment. As he came back to the fire which I was starting up, I plainly told him I should go no farther with such nonsense. He told me I had not been asleep, and was answered only with my eyes open, and that he would find he could not manage to get anything I had away, and that he would be fortunate if he ever got back to his friends in camp. Morning being near I did not dare risk lying down again as I might possibly fall asleep, and so I put in the time scolding and talking to him in a way that wotild discourage him from going any farther with me. At the break of day breakfast was served and rather a light meal was offered to him. As I was getting ready to start he told me his feet were sore and that he would have to mend his ' hompa" (moccasin) before going farther and asked for a piece of the buffalo saddle cover, which was readily given to him for the purpose. It now being light, a grove at the north some fifteen miles away toward the Watonwan was seen. I told him if he still wanted to go to Mankato to be sure and go to that grove, and then left him busy at work on his "hompa" much to the relief of one well tired of an Indian as a travelling companion. Going beyond where Fairmont is now located I turned to the east and in due course of time reached the Blue Earth river, heavy timber until the middle of the afternoon, when a pleasant spot was found for a good nights rest, I stopped. The pony was turned loose, supper was OVflv n.nn nr\w alaavt n?m> j«~ i* : .*__ >* Won river, Where one per soft was lifite Riding up in front of his cabin 1 y him.

After backing out o{ a pocket it was plain to be seen I could not reach home if this should occur agaih, and so when in another I was pleased to learn the bottom had not thawed out so but that I could wade across, and from now on the course was kept with but fevy exceptions. As this was to be a long jaunt for one day I did I not ride the pony and turned it loose to follow with the luggage. Failing to reach the Des Moines river before dark so " could be made I had night somewhere in near as I can locate day's travel of some 40 miles one of the hardest of all my experience, and for that a crossing to stop for the Sec. 8-97. 28 as .it, making the tm« in °i' der foi< tbe time since leaving home, and Sioux or no Sioux had but little to "do with me that night, When waking_the sun was well up. ^2,0 after a hurried meal I was aeain , 0lflQWn the alle y- among the thick timber having all going a w Tbegan by t opera house with | service of illumination i e Rockefellers, . .1 topilities as Algona she is indeed Mfawfffe t So*re^a s^i'ftBdS Ite^TtSS suc^o 'th sieaf±t a bummer, but we must certainly con- reissue a part of the greenbacks the? d « e to the foot that hi eav« uL* flewn the lack of .enterprise th/t des- had provfded to dertSJ^JB wfflS «" ho * 8 &» •£?* a®? 0 ? fife until ffi-TC^T*? f£ le88 aeverityrck', This to an inexpensive remedy until after the Bland-Allison act, and » nd ^ certainly worth trvine- 40luou ' the money of the country was Increased * e- i by the addition of $2,000,000 I §aoh month.

Making a fire and drying up ,| I was soon asleep, and by the first signs of morning was making preparations for the walk home only a few miles away. Being the tenth day out, no person returning to his castle ever felt much better than I did when getting near by and in sight of our cabin with Seeley in front chopping wood. And when he looked up and saw me coming and gave a "Hurrah," with " There he is," I knew full well that he too was feeling pretty well over my return. -f- -f- -*During the season our family was enlarged by the arrival of Thomas 0, Covell and Charles E. Putman from Cedar Rapids, which made us one of the model families as we looked at it. Our cabin was doubled in size and with a large stone fireplace put in we were prepared to entertain our friends. The additional stock of horses and implements of the chase gave us the appearance almost of a small infant outlying military post. The winter soon passed and in April when we were all out looking over the prairie near the cabin for the best place to break up and plant with corn an Indian was seen coming toward us. When within'a few rods he stopped and seemed to be very much pleased, at the same time pointing at the.pony...' I knew from this he must be one of The number met the year before on the river aboye. Going towards him and when near by I recognized my old companion, Umpashotah, whom I had left the year before sitting at the camp fire near Fairmont, He was glad to meet me, and when on our way to the cabin he wanted I should go with him to a patch of brush at the right, sayingX "Kai-numpa" and repeating it over several times. Not knowing the meaning of "Kai" I went with him and found he had two small land turtles disabled in some way so that they could not move, yet alive, that he wanted I should take and cook for supper. Telling him we did not need, them and he could keep them, we went/i to the cabin, where he carefully ex-/( arnined everything in sight and wet took pains that he should be .impressed^ with our ability to defend ourselves a$i the settlement from any harm that might be planned by them. ,> At supper time the cooking department was told we should need preparations for at least six extra plates, as our Indian guest calling to make us a visit must have the best and plenty of it. When all seated at the table were through he evidently had only made a fair beginning on' his evening meal. It took the attention of Putman and Seeley in keeping him supplied, and when they withdrew it fell upon me to serve him with what was left, and his i appearance when straightening up at ! the table and exclaiming, " Tonka " (big) will never be forgotten, He was not so large, however, but that he renewed his efforts, which lasted while there was anything to eat, When finally through he asked one of the boys to help him in lighting his pipe and seat him on a buffalo robe in the corner of the room, when a few puffs wove taken and then he fell asleep, ' more genuine by far than when wit6 me at the camp fire near Fairmont, • and from which he did not wake until • called up the next morning for break* fast, Again at the table fie evidently oTtnU 0 ,^^ 6 f "!l7 Wreciatel setting- when was re' by all until I must TT • >,---*--•" made for Umpashotah now wanted event he asked for what waV'left for 'his squaw, which was all nicely done up by -' Putman and handed to him for that purpose, when he said "Waseoha • Washta" (good white man), and bidding us goodbye he started for his camp, 2vot knowing the object of hie visit op whether his camp was near where j first met them the year before, as fee see where he should ,,. , - -ad been gone a short tU saddled up one of the best horses 3 on after him,, As he W out in the prairie from «W? and «,=!KM«S S*?KoZJ *u~ j ; "*** p»«*"«»?
