With the exception of the one storm in which they were caught, they have had three weeks of good business since leaving here.

It is hoped the Burt people will accept this Apology and be here to help make this the biggest and best celebration the dounty ever saw. Senator Chubb narrowly escaped being nominated for lieutenant governor at Des Moines. It was all fixed for him and only his positive refusal to accept let him off. He flattered the convention a little by saying that it was not the campaign he dreaded but holding the office. That he positively would hot do. The convention made a mistake when it let him off and took Mr. Plummer. At the democratic convention at Des Moines last week Horace ( Mann was chosen one of the vice-presidents. Mr. Mann will take an active part in the fall campaign and is being talked Of as the free silver candidate for congress next year. Mention is made also of him as a legislative possibility this fall. Mr. Mann has given much time to economic questions and could take the stump, and would come as near representing all three parties as anyone named. Mr. Mann ought to be serious ly considered this fall. An old landmark was exposed by the wind last week. It is the south part of the old Grove barn. It is the original barn built by H. A. Henderson, Mrs. Ambrose A. Call's father, 40 years ago this summer about where the water tower now stands for his old original hotel. The lumber was sawed in Asa C. Call's mill down by the Blackford bridge and in the Geo. Smith mill at Irvington. The barn is as solid as ever, and all the wind blew off was the pine front that has been put on in late years. An important business change is announced this week. E. J. Murtagh leaves the Burt bank to join Gardner Cowles in the mail route business, and C. H. Blossom goes to Burt to become cashier of the Burt bank. Algona gains a splendid business man in Mr. Murtagh, who will move at once. He has been very successful in business and in his new field of labor has exceptional qualifications. The new firm is Cowles & Murtagh. Mr. Blossom takes an interest in the bank, but Mr. Murtagh retains his interest. S. N. Harris becomes assistant cashier. They will make a good team. Some time ago a tramp was caught at LuVerne with a lot of clothing and ar rested for stealing it. The charge didn't seem easy to prove, althougl there was no doubt about the theft, and he was sent up and put in jail foi carrying a revolver. He failed to pi'ove his right to the clothing whet released and last Saturday Sheriff Samson sold them at auction, after hav ing them legally appraised. Some o the boys got good pantalopons at 75 cents a pair, and an §18 suit went for $3. Still even then the bargains worn' any better than Durdall and Kraft anc Joe. Steil were offering. This office is in receipt of a note, pre sumably from a friend who forgot tc sign his name, saying that a gambling room is running at full blast in Algona and asking this paper to give the bos gambler a touching up. We should bi delighted to comply with the request but must have positive evidence before we can do so. If the writer of the note has information of the character sug gested the proper thing for him to ct is to lay it before the county attorney and we will wager a farm that 'Squire Raymond will perform the " touching up" process to the queen's taste. W. L. Joslyn is an announced candi date for the republican legislative nqm inatlon, and comes into the field wit! assurances of support which will pu him well to the front in theconvention With Representative Mayne and J. Jones he bids fair to divide the leading support. Other names have been men tioned but none so far with authority J. W. Wadsworth, E. B. Butler, C. B Hutchins, A. A. Brunson, and Geo. W Hanna are any of them possibilities al though none of them are candidates Mr. Joslyn, if chosen, possesses quali ties which give him a deserved popu larity, and which would make him a strong man at Des Moines, ARIZONA'S MOUNTAIN PUZZLE.

IB It a Hole Through an Inaccessible PeaB or Only a Natural Mirror? For the last half century the Ameri can residents of Tucson, A, T., hav been trying to solve a mystery in th shape of what appears to be a hoi through a mountain peak in plain sigh from the town, In the rarefied air i looks to be only a short distance away •when in reality it is at least 40 miles The earliest residents noticed the phe nomenon, and the only difficulty that lay in the way of finding out just what it wa was the fact that it was inaccessible and when they came anywhere near tha spot the hole disappeared from sight In fact, it can only be seen from within a few miles of Tucson, and this has lee many people to believe that it is not a hole at all. , By the aid of a good marine telescope the mountain can be brought to within a few miles, but not near enough to tel the exact nature of the rock formation An .astronomical telescope cannot be f o oused ou it, as the mountain is too near A first peep through the glass would lead one to believe that there was no mystery about it.' The hole appears ai plain as possible, but several days' studj of the spot will develop the fact thai the hole does not always look the same. Many days when the sky is darls behind the mountain the hole will ap pear a brilliant white, like a snowdrift, and on days, when the sky is blue it wil often look so dark a* to be almost in Tibbie, These foots have led m&jay to think that it is an immense piece p: mica Jying with its polished surfa.ce to war4 the sky aj}4 reflecting the cloud form,ations of another part pf the fcori son instead of being the light seen through a bole, Yiewe4 W jth the naj SPQtj but tte telescope reveals pine t? 8»4 otb,ej? details, although very &< The rajtjge pf wpuntajng | B y^on ' mwsss pafe °i» he geen. is known the iMaljfliiiB, m& »um.erouj p,ajt >th.e altempHo pJtab it, 1 Ion acoounjj pf f Selling Canned Goods, us .

This can be explain ed on the mica theory, as a surface o that material would not reflect a ray o light toward a person's eye after thej got out of its angle of projection.—San Francisco Call. "Glenn" Money. A clerk in the redemption division o the treasury department says that th "cleanest" paper money in circulation is that which circulates in Washington while the dirtiest is that which come in from Chicago for redemption. St Louis is a close second to Chicago, an Cincinnati next. New Yor' is next t Washington in the record for clean mon ey, Philadelphia next, while Baltimor ranks next to Cincinnati for having dir^ money. The money that comes in from Chicago, besides being dirty, is alway much mutilated, so much so, he said that there is twice as much time con sumed in patching it up prior to cancel lation as there is in counting it.— Washington Star. Took It Literally. A little maiden of 7 years attended the wedding of an elder brother. The Episcopal service, heard for the firs time, made a deep impression on her mind. A few days after, she called to see the bride and found her sitting on her husband's lap. Looking at them wistfully for a few moments, she ex claimed, "Oh, yes, I see—to have and to hold,"—Exchange. Queer. "There is always one thing I can't uuderstnnd when a valuable dog is poi soned." "Well, what is it?" "The loss always occurs the day after the owner has refused $600 for the beast.''—Chicago Record. That Familiar Cloud. "Dah is a cloud on dis 'semblage, I'ze eorryto say, "said Dewberry Jones as he held his razor between the pot and his opponent at poker. "Is dah?" asked the man who was reaching for the money rather nervously. "Yassah.
