Martin Jordan has a curious Lund suit up in Emmet county. He traded land in Irvington to Lund for an eighty in Emmet with apparently a clear title The eighty shows up with a $500 mortgage and a $700 mortgage. The $700 represents the following transfers: A bogus sale to one Erickson, a bogus mortgage back to Mr Lund's sister-in-law, a bogus transfer from her to one Noel, who now holds it, It is costing Kossuth county about $3,000 to maintain its insane. The bills allowed by the county board for the past year are as follows: January, 1807, mooting— Hospital at Indopouaonco $ r>74,00 Local expense ij£ j>[> To Grundy county ' ' uu April, 1H07, meotiiiK— ...,., ,.„ Hospital lit Intlopoiulonco.,, V?rno Local expenses n.> u~ June, 1807, meeting— Local expenses tv 01 September, 1807, meeting— Hospital at Independence 012 04 Local expenses 0.1 J ( November, 1807, mooting— Hosultnl at Independence O'll •-<•> Local expenses "•' "" Total $11,0108:) The latest report from the hospital at Independence shows that we have 17 patients which are costing §14 a month there. The average will probably not be far from 17 the year round, and the average total expense is-$180 a year apiece, $15 a month, or nearly $4 a week—a good price for the best accommodations. The county by keeping its own insane could materially cut down this bill, and provide fully as good accommodations for the hopelessly insane. All that such a hospital as that at Independence should be open to should be those who can by proper treatment recover. The Kossuth patients reported at Independence in the last report are: Samuel R. Shaw, C. W. Sifort, Geo. A. Gardner, Abbio Bailey, Edward Tobin, Sofa SohulU, Frances Kelloy, Aug. Biging, Emil Erickscn, Martha Turner, Anna Young, Win. Carter, Emil Mousol, Luella Wheeler, Jim. G.

Carter, whose return from the insane asylum was noted last week, and whose friends appealed from the decision of the local commissioners that he be returned to Independence, became violent Friday, and Saturday was taken back to the asylum by the sheriff. Pending the appeal he was put in the keeping of S, P. Christensen, and roomed and ate at the Algona house. He was very quiet and remained in his room most of the time. Thursday morning, however, while Mr. Christenson was up town, ho made pretense ol going to his room and slipped out and started for his home in Irvington. Mr. Christenson was not an hour behind him and ran his team, but Mr. Carter had arrived and was making trouble. As soon as he saw Christenson he bo- came savage and struck him on the head with a club, swearing he would kill him. In the tussle that followed he bit Christenson's hand viciously. He was overcome, however, and We are Long on Apples Just Now and can furnish them by the barrel, by the bushel, by the peck, or the handfull, as desired.

Miss Young, whose return to her Plum Creek home was noted last week, has been taken to Clear LaUe and is being kept there. The Clear Lake Reporter says: "Miss Young of Algona, who has been for some time in the hospital at Independence, came here the last of the week to enter the hospital of this county. For the pros ont there is plenty of room in our hos pital, and the fees we get in this way materially aid in paying the expense of the hospital.
