KOSSUTH'S FAUPEE IMMIGRATION. Knrl Krutjor niid Wife Shipped to tho County In Violation of Jjnw— John Slieruinu Anlted to Act. Kossuth has a curious case. Over In the poor house are Karl Kruger and vvlf o, both past 70 years and both homesick for their old German home. They came to this country last October, and from their own story, in violation of our immigration laws, brought over by the Hanson steamship line for what was in it for them. The old couple had enough to live on at home but sold their little belongings to pay part of the fare. They have a son living near LuVerne, but when they arrived they found him unable to provide for them, and instead of now living in comfort as they had dreamed, they find themselves paupers in a strange land. They spend most of the time crying and bemoaning their fate. As soon as tho case became known to the county board it took steps to investigate and became satisfied that the steamship lino had violated tho laws in bringing them. In fact it seems that the company was unable to land the old couple at Now York and was compelled to take them to Boston. County Attorney Raymond was instructed to notify District Attorney Cato Sells. In reply a very short note was received conveying tho information that he didn't know what he could do. This roused the board a little and John G. Smith has written to John Sherman, secretary of state, giving him the particulars of the case, and also stating Mr. Sells' apparent inattention. It is hoped that the proper authorities will compel the steamship lino to convey Mr. and Mrs. Krugerto Germany again, where thoy long to go. It seems that Kossuth is now maintaining an insane patient at tho asylum that was shipped in this same way, and that became a resident in the county before the facts were known.

A Trump Racer Comes Along and Captures tlio Hoys' Money. West Bond bit last week on tho old foot racing game. A tramp foot racer came along and agreed to go down to Livermoro, work up a big backing, and then let a West Bend man beat him. Everything worked well till the race was called, when the tramp ran away from the West Bend runner. The Gazette says: And he did not even slop after reaching the string, but ran right on,entered thebarber shop which he had used for a dressing room, skipped out tho back door, jumped into a carriage which was in waiting, and disappeared. The West Benders waited for some time for him to reappear and explain matters, and when they thought he had been in that barber shop about long enough to dress himself several times, they got anxious, and it finally dawned upon them that they were sold out and their money gone. Then it was a picnic to see them rush to the telegraph office and write out messages to" neighboring towns to arrest the sprinter, which they were not able to send on account of having bet all their cash, and the air was blue around them as they hastily hitched up their teams to give chase. The Livermore boys were real cordial as they invited them to come again when business was dull up their way. Ta, ta, there, boys. Milwaukee Excursion Hates. Excursion tickets are now sold at reduced rates to Spirit Lake and Okoboji by the Milwauke line.

The program for the Redmen powwow is out. It promises one of the biggest events of the year. No money or pains have been spared in preparing for it, and everybody who enjoys good Sports will do well to keep the dates in mind, Aug. 25-26. It is as follows: A Redmen pow-wow by Seneca tribe, No. 65, I. O. R. M., will be held on the hunting grounds of Algona, Iowa, on the 25 and 26th suns, sturgeon moon, G. S. D., 406, (Aug. 25-26, 1897.) Wonderful deeds of daring, tests of skill and human endurance will be features of the day. The sports and pastimes of the primitive race will be revived on a scale of magnificence never before attempted west of the Mississippi. By a tremendous outlay of wampum and labor we are enabled to present the following unsurpassed attractions at this day and age: Hon. P. C. Naevo, great sachem of Iowa, will bo present and give us a long talk at the opera house at 10:30 a. m., where he will discuss the origin, objects, and present fields of labor of tho Improved Order of Redmen. Free barbecue at noon at fair ground. Early in hot moon our hunters were sent forth to search the prairies that tho finest buffalo might be selected that a feast might be prepared for their brethren. World's champions C. M. Grimm of Clear Lake and Prod. Gilbert of Spirit Lake will shoot a contest of 100 live pigeons each. Intense interest is manifested in this match as this will be the first time these two great world's champions have mot in an individual contest. Mr. Grimm is the champion live bird shot of the world and Mr. Gilbert is tho champion target shot of the world. Great care has been taken to select the swiftest flying birds and the shoot will bo conducted in strictly professional manner. Ball game. Two red-hot nines have been selected from the tribes of northern Iowa to play for the India_n championship of Iowa. The foregoing magnificent attractions will be interspersed with tomahawk throwing, bow and arrow shooting, foot races, relay races, hurdle races, two-foot mile foot races, and other attractions too numerous to mention. Entries have been made in the above by chiefs of well known ability in their respective lines. Band music. The days program will be replete with music by the Mason City and Algona bands, the two finest organizations of the kind in Iowa. In order to defray a small portion of the expense attached to a pow-wow of this kind a small admission fee of 25 cents will be charged; children 10 cents. Grand band concert at the opera house in the evening. The famous Rainmaker's Concert band of Mason City and the well known Algona Military band have already entered for this contest and many more are expected. J. W. TENNANT OBJECTS. He Says Ills Hog Yard Is Not a Nuisance—If It Is There Others. The city council at its recent meeting ordered a hog lot J. W. Tennant has in tho ravine in the southwest part of town abated as a nuisance. Mr. Tennant is somewhat indignant and denies in the first place that it is a nuisance, and asserts in the second place that if it is a nuisance then the town is inflicted with a number like it, one of tho uldermun being an offender. Ho has bought two lots in addition to what ho now owns and is going to give the city a legal tilt if it attempts to enforce its order. He published a clean, well-editided i- column quarto sheet, and had a complete job office. But the venture did not pay. Those who were anxious lor a third paper and extended to him unstinted encouragement when the project was under contemplation, were among the poorest patrons, or in other words, had but little patronage to bestow, and less influence with our newspaper patrons. Mr. Ellis' health being poor he resolved to give up the struggle and last week sold his presses and engine to H. W. Ireland of the Register, and some other fixtures to The Post. He has boxed his type and has shipped It to Ames, Iowa. That there is no demand or room for the third paper in Blue Earth City is the result of the venture.

TO FARMERS who contemplate can furnish you a putting up wind mills: We Gasoline Pumpin nearly as cheaply as a wind mill, and if you want a grinding mill wo can furnish you one as cheaply as a geared mill. It will cost you two cents an hour to run our mill; you have no tower to climb to oil it, and you do not have to wait for the wind-to come up before you can pump. It requires no more attention than a wind mill, as you set it going and it will run till you shut it off. If you think it is dangerous ask the elevator and newspaper men. There is not as much danger from a gasoline engine as there is from a board falling on you from a wind mill, and this would not happen often. We make this as a comparison between the two machines. Call and see us before you buy a geared mill or a wind mill. A. For Sale Two improved farnie 4J Algona, 160 acres in each, cheap, time .to suit purchaser 0.

The News says: On Tuesday ho opened the kiln and his experiment was an unqualified success. He found a quality of both brick and tile that are excelled by none and equalled by the product of few other plants in this part of Iowa. Samples were sent to Tho News which may bo seen by all who feel interested in the subject. They are smotth, hard and porous and of a uniform, light, cheri-y red color. Mr. Ostrum has demonstrated tho possibilities of his business in the production of a good marketable brick and tile now and will begin in good earnest to run the plant to its full capacity. His success means tho birth of a new industry at Britt and tho distribution of thousands of dollars to our laboring iiien in the years to come as well as a saving to all who will have use for those products in Hancock county. -i- -5- -r- Two months aeo S. S. Secor, cashier of tho Faribault county bank, purchased in Florida a stump of a banana tree, about two- feet in length. It was shipped by express, and on arrival transplanted into a tub filled with earth. Since that time the tree has grown nine feet in height, and put forth three leaves. The last or center leaf of the tree was not in sight last Saturday night. Thursday noon it measured a trifle over four feet in length, growing just half an inch every hour during that time. Tho earth in the tub has to be kept in a very moist condition. If Mr. Seoor can get the tree safely through a Minnesota winter, and he is quite sanguine he will have no trouble on that score, it will bear fruit in abundance another year. 4- -T- •*- * Verne Ellis has given up his new venture, the Blue Earth City Globe.

A 1'oeullar Accident. Wesley Reporter: A somewhat peculiar accident occurred Wednesday morning. It appears Joe Myers was out on a hunt for the festive snipe near Sexton, and seeing one he took aim and fired. When tho smoke cleared away he found that he had not only succeeded in killing the bird, but that a quantity of the shot had taken effect in the legs and bodies of his two sons, Joseph and Isadore, who happened to be in range. Dr. Spencer succeeded in relieving the boys of their undesirable charge. Younut Man's Paradise. Emmetsburg Reporter says: Algona would be a splendid place for a bright, good looking young man to be in these days. The teachers' institute is in session there and the enrollment the first day footed up to 264. Of these 264 it is safe to say 200 are of the feminine gender. Just think of 200 nice looking young ladies in one body, and then 'imagine what a delightful place it would be for a young man with the qualifications mentioned above. Home Seelcers' Excursion.

The Raise In tho Assessed Value of Kossuth Land Maries the Increase in Its Value. The Courier quotes from THE UPPER DES MOINES the item about Kossuth lands being raised seven per cent, by the state board of equalization and says: "The republican state officials have managed to saddle over a million dollar debt on the state, and taxes must go up to pay the bill. More evidence of prosperity." This equalizing of land values has nothing whatever to do with debt or taxes. It is a mere matter of getting Kossuth lands assessed at the same rate with the other lands of the state. This raise puts them at $7 an acre. Inasmuch as we know of no land that can be bought for less than $20, this is not above a third of the average value. We have no figures for other counties to compare with, but we presume Kossuth is not out of proportion. In 1891 Kossuth lands were assessed at $2,417,531. There are 599,255 acres, which would make the average about $4 an acre. In 1893 the value was $2,905,758, in 1895, $3,857,186, and in 1897 it is $3,883, 129. The steady gain has been due to the vising value of our lauds in the market, and is, as the Courier ironically suggests, an evidence of prosperity. If the lands will keep going up, those who own them, can well afford to rejoice every time it is found necessary to raise the assessment. T- H. DAVIS has farm lands, both improved and unimproved, for sale at low rates and on easy terms. The lands are located in southern Minnesota, and are as gpcd as Iowa lands and fully as productive.
