B Judge Thotnns sustained the RUBS title in all the Lund cases tried last week. He carefully reviewed the arguments of counsel and the evidence and hold that Lund was not a general agent for Russ, and that therefore Russ was not hound hy his actions except as they were warranted by his express authority. An appeal will bo taken to the supreme court by the defendants. ThoChrischllles mortgage of $1,000 was sustained. In this case Lund had used a fictitious name, Simpson, but otherwise it was us though ho himself had bought the land of Russ and mortgaged it to Chrischlllos. Judge Thomas held as in the Switzor case the use of a fictitious name would not invalidate the transaction. It is safe to say that no cases of such importance have before been tried In our courts. The work of preparation has been very groat and the attorneys had the details of the evidence fully in hand. Mr. Clarke, assisted by Mr. Cohenour, made a strong case for Mr. Russ. Mr. Sullivan, assisted by T. D. Hoaley and C. A. Dudley, left no point for the defense unpresented. Judge Thomas' summing up was in his usually lucid, logical, and impartial manner, and was very able. HAMMOND IS CAUGHT. Sheriff Samson brought Hammond, the Swea City burglar and lately escaped Algona jail breaker, homo last Thursday and Monday ho pleaded guilty before Judge Thomas. He was caught in Creston by the sheriff, who had arrested him for burglary and safe blowing there, and who recognized Sheriff Samson's description. BLOEMPOT GOES FREE. The trial of H. Bloempot for forgery began as soon as the Lund-Russ cases were disposed of last week. Cirksena was brought from the penitentiary as a witness and swore with evident sincerity that ho himself wrote the bogus signature and that Bloempot did not know that it was not genuine. This probably settled the matter, but the jury staid out a good while, because BO many circumstances tended to show that Cirksena and Bloempot were together in the deal. Sullivan & McMahon defended and County Attorney Raymond prosecuted. • JAS. WHALEN FOUND GUILTY. All day Monday was devoted to the trial of Jas. Whalen, accused of rape on a young Gorman girl up in Lotts Creek. The jury brought in a verdict of guilty. C. E. Cohoon of Emmetsburg defended and has moved for a new trial. In such cases the girl must bo corroborated by additional evidence, and in this case the corroboratlon was very slight. The argument for new trial Is being heard this morning. CHARGED WITH ADULTERY. Yesterday morning the trial of J. Q. Adams and Mrs. Kittle Bergman for adultery began. She is a Meinburg girl of Bancroft, and was visiting hoi- sister, Mrs. Bill Neellngs, out In South Dakota when arrested. Adams was working for Neelings. It seems that Bergman went to Oregon to locate, and when he got fixed wrote to his wife to come on. She had tired of him and did not go. Sullivan & McMahon defended, and County Attorney Raymond prosecuted. Mr. Bergman's witnesses failed to testify as expected and the judge took the case from the jury. TODAY'S OASES. The prosecution of Orvis and Weath- orbee for stealing hay will be heard today. Also "Roddy" Rand's dog stabbing case if time permits. Judge Thomas will sentence all who are convicted when the criminal docket is finished. ty to read has been one of their most harmful acquisitions. Unless good literature Is used it would be far better that reading should not be taught, for then it is simply a power for evil. Rending matter for the young should be Interesting, written in the best of language, of unquestioned authority, and of high moral tone. A good periodical is better than a book, for it ia fresh every week. For the purpose I have mentioned, no bettor publication is issued than the Youths' Companion. What better Christmas present or New Year's gift could he mndo than a year's subscription to this excellent paper? N. SPENCER. KEV. HUDSON'S FAREWELL.

The Former Upper Dos MolnoB Kdlt- or LenvcB Snlt Lrtko City lor Uuf- Inlo. The Salt Lake Tribune of last Monday publishes the following: Rev. Adalbert L. Hudson preached his 'last discourse at Unity hall yesterday morning, his subject being "Members One of Another." It was an eloquent address and was listened to by an audience that crowded the hall, testifying to the popularity of the pastor and tho ostoom In which ho is held by tho community at largo. At tho close of his discourse Mr. Hudson spoke a fow works of a personal nature. Ho said that public farewells wore novor satisfactory things, and. us a rule, wero better omitted, but ho could not leave Salt Lake without thanking all members of tho society for their help and support, and ho was especially grateful to tho business men outside of tho congregation for their aid. Tho society was In a flourishing condition and ho hoped It would ever continue so. Ho would not say goodbye, but "God bo with you." Rev. Adalbert L. Hudson took charge of tho First Unitarian church over two years ago, succeeding Rev. Mr. Hunter. He carao hero direct from Harvard divinity school and this was his first charge. Ho was, however, a man of wide experience, having practiced law successfully before entering tho ministry, and his work hero from tho first stamped him us a man of unusual ability. Ho created now interest and enthusiasm among members of the society and his methods speedily popularized tho church, so that 107 members joined tho society during his pastorate, making tho present membership 824. Moro than that, he leaves tho church out of debt for tho first time since the first year of its history. Mr. Hudson has made many warm friends during his residence In Salt Lake. He came hero In September, 1895, and was installed as pastor of tho First Unitarian society in this city. This was his first cull and ho was not ordained as a minister until after his arrival here. At that time tho society had its quarters in an up-stairs room in Main street. The membership was 217, but the attendance at tho Sunday service often foil below 100. Being a logical and entertaining speaker, Mr. Hudson soon revived tho waning interest, and in a short time the Main street quarters proved inadequate to accommodate tho people who flocked to hear his discourses. A commodious hall in Third South street with a seating capacity of 500 was then secured, and tho membership continued to increase until it now numbers 824. Shortly after his arrival In the city Rev. Mr! Hudson inaugurated a series of Sunday lectures, which awakened general Interest, and later the society began to give Sunday evening concerts, which have proved successful both from a social and financial standpoint. Ho will go from Salt Lake to Buffalo, and on Jan. .1 takes charge of the Church of Our Father, one of tho loading Unitarian churches in the United States, succeeding Rev. Mr. Slicer, whohasbeen called to All Souls church, Now York City. He will stop at Chicago and preach at Robt. Collyer's church on December 19 and 20. Mr. Hudson will be succeeded hero by Rev. Mr. Maynard of Santa Monica, C'al., who will preach his first sermon in Salt Lake on Sunday next. Mr. and Mrs. Hudson will take with them to their new home the best wishes of a host of friends here.

Last Wednesday while attending to the wounded foot of the man who got a nail through it at tho now bridge, Lou Millen, of tho poor farm, had occasion to use a knife. The old gentleman Bennett, father of Algona's old- time butcher, asked to borrow It a minute. He looked at it and said it was too dull for anything. Mr. Millen pulled his out and said ho had one sharp enough. Bennett drew his finger across the edge and turning his back jabbed it twice into his throat before he could be stopped. He narrowly missed the vital spot. Ho has been very despondent at spells, and only a couple of weeks ago jumped or fell out of a second story window, but escaped without injury. SATUBDAY'B 8HOOT.

The supremo court holds that taking nude pictures is a violation of the statute, whether they are exhibited and sold or not. Tho case involves Elias Doty, once candidate for governor of Iowa. Doty carried on in Cedar Rapids a picture gallery called the Riverside studio. While thus engaged two women applied to him to take pictures of themselves, stating that they had bet with u man whom they named that they dared have pictures taken of themselves when nude. He complied with their request and made several tintypes of them and they paid him M cents each for them. It is clear and not denied that the pictures taken of the women were obscene. The theory of the defendant is that he did not sell nor give away within the meaning of tho statute; that what he did was merely to make the pictures, the indecent portions being furnished hy nib customers.

Tho funeral was held at the home Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, and in spite of tho inclement weather more came than could bo accommodated. Tho procession which followed his remains to tho Catholic cemetery, where they wore intorrod, was one of the longest Algona has often seen. Mr. Kaln came to Kossulh coun ty in 1804. Ho took tho claim on Plum creek where his old homo still stands, and built a native lumber cabin, covering it with shingles hauled from Codar Palls with an ox team. Here ho began a remarkably successful career as a stock raiser, hero his family grew up into tho respect and confidence of all, here ho established the reputation for honesty, shrewd business judgment and good character that have made him so many friends who now mourn his death. Mr. Kaln's early life was one of hardship. Ho was born In Ireland In 1833, as nearly as can bo definitely known, and at tho age of 20, without any school advantages whatever, ho landed in Now York. He was in Philadelphia a while and then on a farm in DeKalb county, 111. Before coming to Kossuth ho was in the government employ during tho war in Nashville and other southern cities. In 1801 ho was married to Anna Wall, also from Ireland, and ten children, all well and favorably known, have como to bless their homo— Thomas, Robert, John, Mary, Patrick, James, Anna, William, Christopher, and Martin. It is in view of his small beginnings that the groat success ho achieved is to bo measured. Ho acquired large property, but noyer lot tho moro<mat- ter of making money and tho mere possession of money satisfy him. Unable to read much ho had his children read to him on all tho current questions and ho was always ono of tho most intelligent, most conscientious, and most independent citizens. He took a broad view of life and its opportunities and his opinion was always of value and his conversation always interesting. As his time for hard work began to pass, with wise foresight ho gave his sons farms and saw all tho older children well established, while to tho younger he offered tho best opportunities for college training. Moving to town he bought and fitted up a beautiful homo and was prepared to enjoy to tho full tho many opportunities leisure would afford, when as tho result of an accident of some years previous a hidden nervous trouble began to undermine his strength. . It is dilllcult to do ample justice to the splendid life work of this dead pioneer and to the example ho has loft. He illustrated what wo are most proud of in this free country. Without opportunities of any kind, set adrift as a boy, handicapped by tho lack of early advantages, In a free field and with an even chance he achieved a success anyone might be proud of. It was not merely a material success. It was a success along every line of broad intelligent and moral American citizenship, a success that vindicates every claim that has ever been made for absolute trust in the intelligence and conscience of the common people. •JHB UPPEJR PBS MOINES enjoyed for years the friendship of Mr, Katn, On account of some business relations lie (Same tq take a personal interest i» the editor and hie family.

Potter of Crosco died last week Tuesday. Tho funeral was held Thursday, Rov. Sinclair officiating, and tho remains wore buried in the Whlttomoro cemetery. A son from Kansas and ono from Creston, both physicians, were present. Tho following obituary was road at the funeral: Loron E, Potter, homoeopathic physician, was born in Niagara county, N. Y., April 27, 1823. When only 18 months of ago he went with his parents to Genosee county, and then to Erie county, his father being in the lumber business. In the fall of 1880 they moved to Ashlabula county, Ohio, whore tho deceased lead a frontier life with his parents until about 21 years of age, he boing married Deo. 81, 1848, to Thankful Richard of Sheffield, O. To them have been born eight children, of whom five are still living—Or- ango A. of Cresco, la.j Albert C. of Creston, la., Caroline C. of Tama county, la., Lawrenea E. of Cresco, Id., and Horace E. of Clifton, Kansas, In the spring of 1860 the deceased moved from Illinois, whore ho had lived since 1850, to Oilman, Iowa, remaining there 18 years and having a largo practice, at times employing three teams and drivers and covering a circuit of 26 to 40 mllos. Ho practiced regular medicine for u fow years — having studied under Dr. Horace Eaton of "Sheffield, O., a regular physician — and attended lectures at Kingsvillo, O., but as early as 1850 espoused tho homeopathic cause, or system, which ho deemed much bettor, and to which principle he has ever since adhered closely. In May, 1883, ho moved, on account of falling health, to Kossuth county and retired to his farm, Only for a short time, however, was ho allowed to rest In tho quiet of farming pursuits, but was often called on long as well as short visits to the sick among his old patrons and friends, oven to Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, and Dakota in severe cases, thereby being compelled to neglect his farm, to which ho had retired for rest and quiet. The success of this noblo, large-hearted and good man was phenomenal, as all admit; but to his children and Immediate relatives and friends the means for his success are very clear — his untiring zeal, his undaunted courage and determination to keep abreast the times by boing a close student, always searching his hooks and journals for more light, oven up to the last week of hie life. _ "BILLY" BUBTON IN THOUBLE, KoHButli's Supervisor Closed Out By the Sheriff— 1'oor Road Graders Left Out. .Last Friday an auction sale of Supervisor Burton's chattels was advertised, So many claims were presented that the sale was postponed. B. W. Haggard then had the sheriff seize the property under his mortgage and it has been brought to Algona. Burton ie hopelessly Insolvent. The worst feature of the failure is that a lot of poverty-struck road graders claim ho has $500 that should have been paid to them. Burton has had charge of Haight's grading in tho north end and has drawn the pay from the county. Instead of paying the wen he has used the money for other purposes. It is reported that the men will ask the county hoard to relieve them. YOU do not have to dry goods in the shade colored with Putnam Fadeless Pyes. . They are fast to sunlight and washing.
