THE '57 INDIAN TROUBLES, AS TOLD IN THE ALGONA "BEE." Blood-curdllnK Stories that Wore Told Oausod Settlers to Arm for Prospective Uattlos. should It not they can muster 100 able bodied men about the lakes and they feel confident that In case of an attack they will be able to stand their ground without much sncraflce on their side, as they will bo well equipped and prepared for the emergency. So our readers will see that we are not on the frontier nor in any more danger of a visit from Indians than from the pope of Rome." Prof. Owctt's 1'iftii for Coatltittltijt tile JSor mftl School Would In* elude Another Office. The final proposition of Prof. Albert G. Owen of Afton to establish a normal school at Algona has been submitted. As but very few who have seen It give any encouragement, it is unlikely that he will make his expected visit. Prof. Owen wants the town to put up $3,000 in cash, the main inducement being, apparently) the establishment of a new printing office in town. He writes as follows! The past failures of the school have given it a bad reputation, and it will be impossible to make a permanent success of it except upon the plan I outline. First, there must be a strong and able faculty. Second, this faculty must have a body of students the first year so as to make a reputation from the start. Third, there must bo systematic and constant advertising all the In November, 1858, about a year and a half after the Spirit Lake massacre, a little band of Sioux Indians visited the lakes. Wild rumors spread abroad when their tepee was discovered, and for a few days all the settlements adjacent were in a state of excitement. At Alffona the band had grown to 800 savages and hostilities were expected. One man claimed to have boon shot at. The settlers about the lakes surrounded the intruders and Mrs. Abbie Gardner Sharpe, who was then at Spirit Lake, went out to identify them if possible, as members of Inkpadutah's band. Their mission was found to be peaceable and they were allowed to depart. They were not, however, allowed to enter the settlement, being regarded as spies. A detailed report of this incident and perhaps the only one in existence is preserved in the faded copies of the Bee, a manuscript newspaper which was read at Monday evening meetings during 1858 in the Algona settlement. It furnishes a chapter of pioneer history worthy of more lasting record. The editor gives the particulars cheerfully, he says, " hoping they may have .a tendency to quiet the nerves of those who have been dreaming the last fortnight of conflagration, scalping knives, starvation and torture." The story as told in the Bee is as follows: " About four weeks ago a man while out hunting saw a tepee or Indian lodge about three miles from the town (Spirit Lake) and also saw Indians thereabouts. He being alone very naturally made way back to town with the intelligence. The news spread rapidly over the settlement, the people collected, together, and well armed scouts were sent out to reconnoiter the enemy's position. , They could find but one tepee, and concluded to venture up to It and ascertain the numbers and business of the occupants. Only five Indians were found at the camp. They seemed peaceably disposed and on being ordered to march they obeyed promptly. The scouts marched them towards town, but before they reached it were met by almost the entire male population of the place ' armed to the teeth,' Here they halted and held a council. Some were for meeting out summary vengeance on these five dusky heads, some were present who had friends brutally butchered or carried into captivity at the time of the massacre 20 months ago, and whose breasts the smothered flames of vengeance needed only the eight of an Indian to kindle them into uncontrollable fires, But the counsel pf the wise prevailed. Among the whites present was a man who had been engage^ in the government survey on the frontier for some time and who had learned something of tUe Indian language, JJe questioned the Indians cjo^ely concerning the massacre, but they eloquently repelled the charge of being concerned in that bloody deed. But be learned that the leader of the flve was a relative of Inkpadutah. Tfoie discovery excited the curiosity and suspicion of the whites and they pent for Mrs. Sharpe, formerly Miss Gardner, to see if she knew them. She Ofljwe out in company with other ladies to where the Indiana were, but could rgQOguize none of them.

Advertising, as I expect to advertise, costs a large sum annually—from one to two thousand dollars a year. My proposition is substantially as follows ; 1. The school property to be leased to me at a nominal rental for a term of years, with full power to organize and conduct the school. 2. The city to purchase 75 scholarships, each scholarship good for 40 weeks tuition, beginning with summer (opening) term of 0 weeks next summer, the price of each scholarship being $40, 8. I will put in a new and modern printing establishment, with power, cylinder press and folder, and issue an eight page monthly paper, size about 16x23 inch page, making the subscription prico 50 cents a year, minimum Issue 6,000 copies and from that to 10,000, as an advertising medium. This will not be on exclusively college paper, but a first class literary monthly of Interest to all classes of people, and to teachers everywhere. The home issue of this paper will reach the families of Kossuth county monthly. I will have a largo subscription list among the teacher's of the state, I will have a circulation of at least 4,000 In Kossuth county. The editing and issuing and securing subscription list for such a paper is not an experiment with me, and in u year or two I will have a subscription list of over 5,000 copies In Kossuth and adjoinlnlng counties, in addition to the foreign circulation. Nearly half of each page of this paper will be devoted to general commercial advertising. 4. The business and professional people of Algona to contract for advertising space in this paper for one year. This paper, being a monthly, will in no way come into competition with the regular weekly papers of Algona. Among the advantages to the city of having a first class college, I would call your attention to the fact that my paper will widely advertise Algono, and thus be of great'benefit to the city as well as furnish the best and most valuable means of advertising the college. I have two sons who are practical printers and thoroughly familiar with all the details of such a printingplant. My printing plant will bo entirely new and first class in every particular. With a power cylinder press, with folder attachment I will be equipped to Issue an edition of 20 to 40,000 at stuted times. Also to print and Issue thousands of catalogues and other advertising matter. In short my printing plant will make the college. My plan assures the people of Algona of my good faith in going into the matter of conducting the college on a permanent and solid business basis. My capital would be invested in the enterprise and in the city. I have first class school men who vill go into the college with me. I am asking the city to meet me half way in an enterprise which, on my plan will bo an assurred success from the start and give Algona a leading position among the towns of the northwest as an educational center One of Al. Adams' Farm Notes. A certain farmer had a largo crib filled with ear corn, and there was a knot hole in the south end of the crib. When a cyclone struck the crib it was claimed that the suction was so great that cob after cob was drawn through the knot hole leaving the farmer's crib full of shelled corn. so he decided to introduce some good blood Into Georgia. Mrs. Hay is in Dubtique and will go Friday. Capt. 15. D. Dodge, Mr. Douglas Lewis, H. C. Dodge and Mrs. H. O. Dddge, hate organized the Dodge Land and Investment company, with headquarters at St. Paul. The capital stock is $50,000 and the company will sell lands, make loans, and do a general business. Capt. Dodge will not leave Algona, and H. C. will have the business in charge. He Was in Algonalast week on a visit; LOVELY LETTERS. " What lovely letters I receive from Mary Hopkins," said one young lady to another in our hearing, and while we are not acquainted with the individual referred to, yet this remark gives us a favorable opinion of her, which we likewise have of all who master the art of letter writing, lor such persons seldom fall to win their way to social and business prominence. Parents, give your boys and girls a chance. Buy each one of them, who is ten years old and over, a scholarship in some school of correspondence where trained teachers conduct a practical and instructive and exceedingly interesting course of social and business correspondence with their scholars, old or young, at their homes. At the school named below the price of tuition has been reduced to the remarkably small sum of $2.40 per year, payable sixty cents quarterly In advance, or $2.00 In one cash payment. For some time this school has also furnished Its scholars all needed stationery, and will continue to do so In the future.
