The county supervisors have been in session since Monday morning. A large part of the work before them has been on grades and bridges. They will finish and adjourn today. First Church of Christ, Scientist, Sunday services at Odd Fellows' par- low. It is worth a million, more or .ess. Readers will peruse with interest the letter this week from D. A. Haggard, which recounts the happenings in this county during its earliest days. It may not be generally known, but it is a fact that Mr. Haggard was one of the first white men on Kossuth soil, coming through here in 1854, and his recollections of the then existing conditions form an important part of our history. His article is first class. In the case of the attachment of the Parish stock of goods Referee B. W. Haggard reports to the court that the sale of the stock to J. L. Edmonds was regular in every way, and recommends that the goods be released. It was shown by the examination that Edmonds held just claims against Parish for actual money loaned, and the bill of sale transferring the stock was in payment of the debt. Mr. Edmonds expects to continue the business at the present stand. Attention, A. O. TJ. W! All members are requested to meet at the I. O. O. F. ball at 8:30, Thursday morning, June 17, after which line will be formed, headed by Algona band, and drive to Burt to attend tho picnic. Those living on the road to Burt are requested to meet at W. H. Bailey's. Parade will reach there about 9. Come all and bring your friends and dinner and enjoy a good time. By order of COMMITTEE. One of the important cases tried ing the present term of court Was an equity case ill which one Daniel fierce of Sycamore, 111., by his conservator, Mr. Townsend, sought to recover pay* ment on an $800 mortgage given by Frank Studer, but on land how owned by Jacob Nelson. It was one of those cases in which C. L. Lund figured, and is further proof of the crooked manner in which he transacted business. Mr. Lund acted as the agent for Pierce in the transaction, and loaned Nelson some $3,000 with which to pay up the $800 mortgage and a couple of others. The draft came from the Connecticut Mutual Life Insurance company—for which Lund & Ryan acted as agents— for the $3,000 loan, made payable to Nelson, who endorsed and handed it over to Lund for the purpose of having all the other mortgages paid off. Lund never paid this $800 mortgage, although the record shows a forged release of the same; and that is why it now bobs up and is made the basis of this suit. He probably paid the other two. J. J. Ryan, by virtue of his having at one time been a partner of Mr, Lund, was made a party to the suit. It was shown that the business with Townsend was done through C. L. Lund, and that between Nelson and the insurance company through Lund & Ryan. The points in the case were whether or not payment by Nelson to Lund, who acted as Townsend's agent, relieved Nelson of further obligation, and if not, whether Ryan would be liable as a partner of Lund for money received from Nelson. Judge Quarton, after hearing a large mass of evidence and exhaustive arguments by counsel, held that the payment by Nelson to Lund as agent was equivalent to a payment to the original holder of the mortgage, incidentally, also, relieving Mr. Ryan of any further liability in the matter. The case was tried by E. V. Swotting and J. W. Corey for Townsend, Clarke & Cohenour for Nelson, and Sullivan & MoMahon and Frank Farrell for Ryan. The trial consumed three days, during which much of the correspondence between Lund and Townsend was produced, and showed clearly that Townsend was hot after Mr. L'iind some time before the latter's death. and on bne knee, and had his clothes nearly all tOrh oft. It might have proved even mote serious had not the conductor, at this critical stage, grabbed and pulled him out of his perilous situation. He was at once taken to the hotel, where Dr. Spencer exam' ined his wounds and made him as coin* lot-table as possible. D. A* Haggard, accompanied by Dr. Renefick, drove to Sexton at once, and further examination showed that the injured man had suffered no broken bones, though he was very sore and stiff. He was left at Sexton for the present, where his wife, who went at once on receipt of news of the accident, is caring for him, and it is hoped ho serious complications may follow. If you want Good F L,U U JA why iti the world don't you BUY lors, 10:45 a. m. Subject next Sunday: "The Gospel of Inspiration." Friday afternoon meeting at 2 o'clock. . Marshall Hayes, down in Garfield, is beginning work on a new house on his farm, which will be 30 feet square and 18 feet high, to take the place of the old one, which has been moved out of the way. M. B. Dalton's experience with fruit trees is not encouraging. He set out 100 apple and other trees a year ago, and out of the entire lot has one lone tree left. The rabbits did the business for him, girdling and destroying them. W, W. Alcorn was down from the north Monday. He disposed of his business in Bancroft and bought baoknis old farm in Seneca, to which bere: moved in March, He says he likes farming best and will stay there, Chas. Slagle has gone to Emmetsburg as extra man in the Milwaukee •• station. He has been temporarily in the Milwaukee depot here, and hopes soon to get a permanent situation with the road, Charley is a competent railroad man. H, W. Walston has rook on the ground for some kind of a new house- he is not yet quite sure how good—but we imagine it will be a credit to his neighborhood. The old house is to be moved north a few rods to make room for the new one, Lu Wheelook is back from Tomahawk, Wis., where be has been living for three years, and is duly installed as 6 workman in THE UPPER DBS MOINES office. Lu is a faithful boy and a good compositor, and we are glad to make him one of the U. D, M, family. A little black bug—and he is numerr ' ous—is found on the inside of the plum tree leaves this season. His presence causes the leaves to gradually wither and roll up. and is of course disastrous. Perhaps some fruit raiser can suggest ft remedy for bis destruction without injuring the tree. A representative of the Mansonbot- tling works was here last Friday sampl* ing our city water with a view to establishing bottling works here. He thought Algona a. good point for the location of such an industry, and bis be&4 is level, He is coming back to »ake f wtbe> Investigation. Ja.s. G. Smith Q!

J,Q-$e The Kindergarten. Miss Laird, the lady who is to conduct a kindergarten here this summer, will open the school June 21, in the Baptist church parlors. Miss Laird comes with the highest recommendations. She has been for the past seven years a teacher in the Des Moines schools, and for the last four years director of the Bird Kindergarten school.

Liberal reward will be paid for his return or for information that will lead to his expect raspberries and cherries P Grand Jury Reconvened. Judge Quarton called the grand jury back for work which did not appeal- when they were sent home. The particular work in hand was the case of one Hennesy at Lu Verne, alias Patterson, who, according to all reports, is an all-round bad man. His most recent performance was at LuVerne, where he became party of the first part in a case of adultery with Mrs. Dorsheimer, with whom he eloped. The pair were overtaken at Fort Dodge and brought back, the preliminary examination resulting in his being bound over to the grand jury and placed in .the county bastile. The grand jury_ yesterday returned an indictment against him in accordance with the above, and he pleaded guilty and took his medicine. He gets two years. rive Years JTor Hoyt. Clarence Hoyt pleaded guilty and Judge Quarton gave him five years in the pen at Anamosa. Sheriff Sampson took him there last Friday and in less than two hours after his arrival he had donned the stripes. He exhibited no concern about his sentence. If he has not already become a hardened criminal his environment during the past few years has been such as to make him oblivious as to what may become of him. Notes, Court adjourns today.
