State St. TELEPHONE 19. Ordered by fiishop Catholics Protest-^-Otheif News of the Northwest. A curious contest has arisen between the Catholics of Port Dodge and Archbishop Hetinessy. Port Dodge has had for many years one of the largest and most prosperous Catholic churches in Iowa. Father Lenihatij who built it up, Was lately promoted to be bishop of Cheyenne, and with the arrival of the new priest came an order dividing the parish and providing for two churches. The archbishop had consulted nobody and his new program was so sudden that it took the Fort Dodge breath completely away, As soon as the order was fully understood a practically unanimous stand was taken against it and an appeal instituted. No one believes that the archbishop will listen to the protest, as he is one of the most determined of the Catholic prelates. But the appeal will be carried to Rome before the order is allowed to stand, and even then it is doubtful if the Fort Dodgers will co-operate in maintaining two churches. M. D. O'Connell is one of the active men in leading the opposition to the archbishop. We have a beautiful line of- this spring, all extra good values, selling at from 75c to $7.00 a pair. Also a big line of Opaque Shades all ready to hang, from 250 up. We carry in stock curtain material in all widths and can make you any size on short notice. G. L. Galbraith & Co. Algonn District Missionary Meeting. The Clear Lake Mirror says the meeting of the Algona District Home Missionary society was interesting: There was a good attendance of delegates and representatives from abroad, but the local attendance was not what it should have been. A fine address of welcome was delivered by Mrs. Underwood, and many notable addresses were made, those of Presiding Elder Yetter, Mrs. Babcock of Garner, and others. Mrs. Chas. Dawson acted as secretary pro tern. The next meeting will be held at Britt in November. Officers were elected as follows: President, Mrs. M. O. Lambley, Alexandria; vice president, Mrs. C. W. Parker, Algona; corresponding secretary, Mrs. F. 0. Cowles, Algona; recording secretary, Miss Julia Iverson, Clear Lake; mite box secretary, Mrs. G. H. Hum, Clear Lake; treasurer, Mrs. W. H.

Kolllhnu is Calm. The day set for Lew Kelllhan's execution is Aug. 20. The Fairmont Sentinel says: The doomed man shows very little interest in his fate. A portion of the time he reads the bible, and occasionally looks over the newspapers. Sheriff Hill says he causes him very little trouble. Every day people at home and from abroad make requests to see the prisoner, but all are refused. Kollihan has a right to see a minister and his attorneys, but he does not take advantage of it. The general opinion seems to be that ho will be hanged, but while there is life there is hope and it cannot bo denied that a large majority of our citizens hope the sentence will be modified to imprisonment for life, which would accord with the verdict of the jury that tried the case.

A Curious Freak of Lightning. Geo. Gray had a stack of hay struck by lightning over near Corwith a week ago. A hole was bored through the stack and about a foot into the ground. Fire caught near the bottom and three barrels of water falling to put it out, a hay knife was secured and a hole live feet across cut down. The fire was found within about two feet of the bottom and was soon extinguished. The stack contained about 12 tons, and nine tons were saved. The lightning went through 14 feet of hay and made a hole in the ground as big as a rat hole. A Chance to Go East.

Bit of California Climate. "My introduction to California came in tho shape of a dose of pneumonia," declared the fat horseman from New Orleans. "I came over the southern route, and crossing the Mojave desert it was hotter than the hinges on the gates of Tophet. When I went to bed, I thought I would be baked like a Christmas pig before morning. I threw all the bedclothes off and lay perspiring for a couple of hours before I could get to sleep. "Sometime in the night I woke up and could hardly move hand or foot. I thought I was baked to a orisp. After pinching myself alive and working my limbs a little I came to the conclusion that I had been looked in a refrigerator oar and was on cold storage. I studied the matter for a few minutes and finally remembered where I had ought to be. I felt around for my bedclothes, but some of my neighbors must have felt cold before I did and had stolen them. I had just enough sense and strength left to ring for the porter, and it took the rest of the night to thaw me out. He explained to me that we had left the desert, where the thermometer stood at 118 in the shade, and had run into eight inches of snow in Tehaohap pass, where the mercury was down to zero," -•-San Francisco Post, Pr» Petew, tl»e "Explorer," Pr, Peters once wrote a book entitled "New Wght on Park Africa," in which he shows us the sort of light that his work has thrown on that continent. In August, 1889, he started up the Tana river j« British East Africa at the head of an armed force of Somali, Before the end of that month, by the capsizing of a canoe, he lost, among some loads of ammunition and brandy, "the only load of beads J possessed." He continued his journey, W be tells us, "without any articles of barter." He of course had not sufficient food with him to last for the whole jpwney, and could not have earned it if be had. jn wss.ecp.eaoe, as 'he explains, "the • ' ' $°R to a.dvan?e without the articles of barter once few all v™v~ ttfr ebwwfef *? f* waj |9f ft? fctfWi fc towi' A9 Kent!
