COUNTY FAIR IS OUT $200, LAO* THE BBGtJLAfc MEMBERSHIPS State Authorities Kefase to Pay the '0 Except on Affidavit that Society Cannot Make. Attorney General Remley has fixed up an affidavit that county fair officials must sign to get the $200 the state has heretofore been paying to county agricultural societies. The Kossuth society cannot comply with it, nor can many that has thus far reported. The affidavit is as follows: State of Iowa county, ss. •mo president, treasurer, and secretary of ..Agricultural society, being duly sworn, depose and say that said soci- etv is duly incorporated. That the several sums placed opposite the list of names of members of this society •were paid by said persons for actual mem bership. or contributions for membership for the year 1897: That said sum, or any part of said sum were not loaned to the society with the ex Pe That'no part of said membership fees was taken from, or constitute a part of the gate receipts or admissions, fees or charges during the fair of 1S9T, but are the actua membership fees demanded and received o said persons as their actual contribution! as members of said society during the yea 1397, and was raised for the legitimate pur pose of the said society. president Treasurer Secretary Subscribed and sworn to by.......... „..- THE tJPPEK DBS MOINES: AT,GONA.

Rev. A. L. Hudson, former editor of THE UPPER DES MOINES, will leave Salt Lake City and go to Buffalo, N. Y. At present he is preaching in Chicago, in Robt. Collyer's old church. The Salt Lake Tribune says he "is very much respected and honored by bis parishioners. His sermons have weekly filled the church, and his eloquence and earnestness made him a most popular minister." Speaking of Geo. W. Hanna and his new home the LuVerne News says: Our acquaintance with John [J. Q. Hanna of Texas] and George dates hack a good many years, nearly 30; knew them when the combined capital of both would not have bought the shingles for one side of George's mansion; when George herded cattle on the prairies in Wright county in the summer and taught school during the winter. Now he is a "gold bug" and lives in one of the finest mansions in Iowa. Success to him and long may he be here to enjoy it. George has worked for it and we are pleased to see such monuments of his success. •+••*-•*Architect Conner has paid the Hanna house his last visit and formally accept od the work from the contractor. He says it is the best house in the county, which makes it the best in this part o the state. Bailev is running a farm departmenl in the Britt Tribune, in opposition to Al. Adams. Here is one of his suggestions: Talking about ticks, there are 11 kinds of ticks. The sheep tick, the wood tick, the bed tick, the lunatic, th Aztec, the fanatic, the clock tick, the Toltec, the politic and the tick that th subscriber gets his paper on. Of al these ticks the last is the longest. The Aztec is the oldest, the Toltec is th dirtiest, the sheep tick is the homeliest, but the wood tick is the cutest little cuss of all. A man who can sit in church without "hunching" when a wood tick is standing on its head on his spinal column and slowly making its way towards his pancreas, could whistle the devil's dream while being electrocuted. But the politic is the most persevering of all ticks; it pervades all phases and conditions of society, the church, the army, and the harem. It " nips hard" and frequently bores twice in the same place. It is first cousin to numbers 4 and 6. Kossuth county has had 'em for 10 years, but since election the only tick they have seen is the tic douloureaux, and that's all we know about ticks. -7- -T- -j- The Forest City Summit says the curfew is a success: Some at first were inclined to poke fun at the idea, but practical results bring about the satisfactory conclusion that a law which takes children off the street at night decreases crime to a considerable extent. The Minneapolis Tribune gives reports from Lincoln, Neb., Kansas City, Des Moines, St. Joe, North Platt, Omaha, Denver and Evanston showing a decrease of from 75 to 100 per cent, in the arrests of youthful law breakers since the curfew ordinance went into effect. The law is no hardship on the parent and its good effects are shown in the moral and social life of the streets and in the school and the home, If our curfew "blew" at 8 p. m. we beliieveit would be better here for the winter months. At such a late hour it is used now more to go to bed by than for the FOR sale, residence property, well located. Inquire of F. H. Vesper.-30t4 Holiday Excursion.

He Is Opposed to Their Retirement —No Prospect ol Currency Legislation. WASHINGTON, Dec. 8: Reporters have made a poll of congress upon the most vital questions likely to come before that body this session. Below are given the exact questions submitted to the members and the answers follow: The following proposition was submitted to the members of the house: Do you favor the retirement of the greenbacks?" The surprise in the vote upon this proposition was in the fact that such republicans as Belknap, Dolliver, Odell, Henderson, Mesick, Bruse and Hopkins were found in the opposition. Not a single populist, of course, favored the proposition, while Brenner of Ohio and Kitchen were the only democrats in its favor. The following propositions were submitted to the senate: "Can any radical financial legislation, involving the retirement of greenbacks, the limitation of the legal tender quality of silver, or ;he issuing of gold bonds for the retirement of greenbacks pass the senate?" There was practically a unanimous sentiment that nothing can be done. On this poll there was not an affirma- ;ive vote. The negatives were largely in the majority and the doubt expressed by certain senators virtually meant the negative. Your Holiday Trip can be made via the Northwestern line on excursion tickets which will be sold at reduced rates Deo. 24, 25, and 31, 1897, and Jan. 1, 1898, limited to Jan. 4, 1898, to points on the Northwestern system wUuiu 200 miles of selling stat- tion.

The Great Methodist Bishop Will Talk About Our Great President in AJgoim. Algona is to have the greatest oration of modern times at the opera house Jan. 8. It is Bishop Fowler's eulogy on Abraham Lincoln. It was given at the Spirit Lake Chautauqua and this is what Senator Funk said of it in the Beacon: " Grand beyond these powers of description was the oration of Bishop Fowler upon ' Abraham Lincoln' yesterday. It was a master piece of character painting drawn with wonderfu fidelity by a master of the divine art from a subject incomparable among the leaders of the earth. There was not the slightest effort apparent in the line of oratorical effect, and yet the spontaneous flow of eloquence and the marvellous flights in description _ wonderfully moved the great audience. Bishop Fowler is a man of mighty intellect, and strong in the elements of true oratory." OUR JAIL WILL HOLD HIM. Christmas Slippers.... For Christmas Presents Make good and useful gifts.

Corvvith Hustler: Frank Ray, alias "Old Socks," languishes in the Kossuth county jail. It appears that in the absence of Nick Decker and family from their home on Thanksgiving that Frank was left to do chores. On the family's return it was found that "Socks" had disappeared, and that he might know just how long he was gone he took Mr. Decker's watch with him, Mr. Decker had him arrested for theft, but it would appear that it was not the intention of Frank to steal the watch, as he went direct to Joseph Walkner's and there showed the watch, telling whose it was, and saying he must return it before a stated time. However, "Socks" is having a warm berth, something to eat and nothing to do except to wish for a " half pint." Old Gold arid Silver. We buy your old gold and silver.
