' ' "^ •MHtti ••*,* "t" GAME BIRDS, Lettef to MSP. jB*l*IaiiiS a Meritorious Measure. Congressman Johh F, Lacey of the Sixth district haft introduced a bill intended to include th6 introduction and Bfotectlott of gaffle birds as part of the duties of the tfnited States commission 6f fish and fisheries. He Writes a letter to John G, Smith, president of the state association which explains the matter fully* an( * whteh ^ B e * £etierat interest, tfhe bill provides as its chief object "the restoration of such birds in those tiafts Of the United States adapted thereto, where the same may have become scarce or extinct, and also to aid In the introduction of new and valuable varieties or species of American or for- elen birds In localities where they have not heretofore existed." Mr. Lacey writes in support of this measure as follows: WASHINGTON, D. 0., July 5.—My Dear Sir: Your letter is at hand. The most effectual way to aid in the nassage of my bill would be to get lead- in* newspapers to favor Its passage so as to attract attention to the importance of the scheme. I do not propose for the government to go into the business of'protecting game in- the states. That cannot be done under the constitution. But the states will supplement and aid national legislation by protecting the birds that the fish and bird commission may introduce. I think the Oregon grouse would do well in the woods of Virginia and North Carolina The Chinese pheasant and nrairie chicken would thrive, if protected, in the Shenandoah and Cumberland valleys. The California quail would hold Its own in the south. There are a good many birds that would live in Iowa If Introduced and protected there. We should protect our quail, robins, prairie chickens, larks and other birds better in Iowa than we dp. The very action of the government in aiding the Introduction and distribution of birds will arouse public interest in the necessity of aiding in BO good a work. In some localities such birds are in superabundance. They may be captured there and turned loose for breeding In other localities. In some parts of West Virginia the farmers complain that turkeys and deer are injuring their grain. If true this shows that under protective laws the birds may Increase greatly. I will send you a copy of the bill. I send copies also to each of your directors. Yours truly, JOHN F. LACEY. QILDEBSLEEVE BEATEN. Optlmus Wins at Blue Eartli in Two Heats on a Bad Track. Gildersleeve was beaten at Blue Earth, Saturday, in two straight heats. Optlmus came in two lengths ahead once, and about four the second time. The track was heavy and the rain kept down the attendance. The purse was $200 a side. Not much money changed hands, as the Optlmus people were not confident. When the race was over Gildersleeve was staked for §500 on another race oh a 'dry track, but the Optlmus people would not accept. The Blue Earth Globe, before the race, said: "Gildersleeve .and Optl- mus, the two noted running horses, have been matched for a 'mile and repeat 1 race on our race track next Saturday for a purse of $200, or rather to settle a wager of $200. Gildersleeve, it will be remembered, In the novelty derby race of one and one-half. miles, took the purse for the first half mile and also for the mile, and Optimus got the one and one-half mile purse. At Winnebago City Gildersleeve took all three purses. Mike .Brady thinks Optimus the best mile horse, and entered into a wager with the owner of Gildersleeve—Ben. Smith. He bet $200 and put up $50 as a forfeit. Gildersleeve arrived here Monday afternoon. At this writing Optlmus has not arrived. They are both good horses and it will be nobody's race until it is finished, : A- Trotting Race. Quite an interesji is being taken in a matched race/between Rapid Transit, owned by George Shellenbarger of Humboldt, and Elastic, owned by Carl Jackson of Gllmore on August 15 for $1,000 a side, $200 forfeit having beep put up by both Pf these gentlemen. Rapid Transit has gone at the Kossuth fairs and is a speedy horse. SEE the new " Japanese Art Crepe," the latest thing for draperies, only loo a yard, Gcto. L. GALBRAITH .& Co.

Lew Kellthan, the bank robber, was one of the great attractions iti Fairmont at the celebration Saturday. The Sheriff had to guard the iali all day to keep the crowds away from the windows. Ledyard Leader: Those who went to Algona speak In the highest terms of the celebration and the hospitable manner in which they were treated. Whenever Algona does anything she does it up in style. Armstrong Journal: Beer wagons were doing a big business on the streets and Swea City had the appearance of Milwaukee at the time of the G. A.

Sunday Dr. Parker took a wad of paper the size of a hazlenut out of the palm of his hand, and the wonder is that his hand was not blown off. Emmetsburg Reporter: It was amazing to see the amount of beer that was shipped by express and otherwise to the various towns in prohibition districts. Algona, Wesley, Whlttemore and Spencer each got a share of it. The celebration storm came at Spirit Lake with hall stones. It lasted 10 minutes and did much damage to window lights and injured the crops to some extent. The hailstones were unusually large, one measuring six and -J inches around. Armstrong Journal: Those who went from here to Swea City are louder in their praise about having a good time than those who went to larger towns. It is not necessary to go to a large town to see a good celebration or have a good time. The Arnold's Park celebration was interrupted by the seizure of several dray loads of liquor. It was taken to jail In Spirit Lake at 10 o'clock In the morning.

Rutherfyrd Are at Home In Algona and Settled to Housekeeping. Last Thursday at 4 o'clock the marriage of Aaron Rutherford and Miss Cora Hibbard was soleminized at Emmetsburg In the presence of relatives, Mrs. Rutherford and three daughters going from Algona. A wedding repast preceded the return to Algona, where they are fitting up rooms in the Rutherford house and will soon be engaged in housekeeping. The Emmetsburg Reporter in speaking of the marriage says: " Mr. Ruthford is one of Algona's young business men being the owner of a 'bus line' in that city. His business is quite large and requires the aid of several drivers to carry it on. He has a very large circle of friends in Algona and is highly esteemed by them. The bride is the daughter of Mrs. A. Hibbard of this city arid a nelce of Milton Starr, editor of the Algona Republican. She is a young lady of good accomplishments, being highly respected and loved for her true womanly qualities. For some time she was deputy postmistress at Algona, but when thepostoffice changed hands three years ago she took up the teacher's profession, which she has since successfully followed." Both bride and groom are so well known In Algona that they are the recipients of a host of congratulations in which THE UPPEE DES MOINES most heartily joins. - LuVerne News: One who attended the Algona celebration says the industrial parade was grand. It was a half mile long and each division had a good band. He also said that it was remarkably good for Algona. We understand that about fifty from here took the train to celebrate there. John Grothouse's boy at Buffalo Center took the combustible material out of a whole bunch of fire crackers and made one great cracker, which he lighted and sat out in the yard to explode. The fuse burned down and the boy ran to see if it had gone out, when there was a deafening explosion and the full charge struck the boy In the face and almost ruined his eye sight. Armstrong Journal: Amy Peugnet came up from Algona Tuesday for a couple of days outing and fishing. There is no one the Armstrong boys are gladder to see than Amy. He says there were 8,000 visitors in Algona July 3. The celebration was a grand success, but the rain spoiled the fine program prepared for the evening, Algona people can overcome all human agencies but are not able to contend successfully with the elements.

Smith, who will be remembered by all who were at the editorial banquet: While a soldier Hon. P. A. Smith was shot In the neck, and to this day the bullet is encysted in the tissue near tne jugular vein, and its outlines are plainly visible. Not long ago he had it photographed by the X-ray process, and the picture is interesting. It was a 'spent' bullet, and Is as perfect In form now as the day It was made. It is a little souvenir of soldier days that "Pa" would gladly dispense with. Algotia, Monday, July 19. A mighty whirlwind of monster amusement, ideas.

Harrison. Everybody was present. The Journal In describing it tells bow twenty five years ago this estimable couple were married in Algona. It is an entertaining picture of early days; "Mr. Harrison arrived In Algona at 5 p. m. on this eventful day, where bis future wife was In waiting. They talked of the past and recited the events during the year they bad been separated and did not notice that time was swiftly passing, When t was time for the ceremony to take place it occurred to the bridegroom that it was necessary to procure a license.

Senator Peffer of Kansas spoke at Carroll. The Herald says of him: Ex- Senator W, A. Peffer, of Kansas, did not meet all the requirements of the typical populist statesman, He Is a mild mannered man, thoughtful of the opinions of others, cautious of expressing himself In private conversation, considerate in the expression offals notions and quite fascinating in private conversation. He is no fire eater and shrinks from exploitation of his political belief. He is a small man, his wealth of whiskers being a most noticeable feature of bis personal appearance, Personally Mr. Peffer Is a most amiable gentleman; politically he is a populist with a two line pica P. Emmetsburg Reporter: The Algona celebration was a big success as far as it went, but like all other celebrations in this part of the state was broken off short by rain, The industrial parade was very fine, almost every firm in Air gona being represented, It seemed as if the business men vied with each other to see which would have the nicest showing. The high jump and the balance of the program as advertised was carried out. The speech of Hon. Judge Ladd was one of the best that was ever listened to.
