The deceased *as well known in this city, having been resident of Lake county during the jost twelve years, residing most *of the lime with his parents on the farm two fttid a half miles northwest of the city. The funeral will be held from the Bap list church to-morrow at 10:30 a. m. Deil Rapids Times: H. L. Loucks is already reported to be making an effort to effect a combination between the in dependents and democrats on a candidate ior congressman. He proposes to give Jibe democratic party the congressman for #»e assistance it rendered in the election Senator Kyle. Talk about machine politics! The farmers have a leader who Evidently pretends to be something of a i political juggler himself! Will the farm ers sell out to democrats as he proposes? That is the question for them to decide if the combination is effected. Under instructions from States Attor ney Porter, City Marshal Lee this after noon took charge of the Ans Rudsdell saloon according, to the state prohibi tion law. The goods and fixtures were confiscated and the building locked up to be held as security for costs. The goods captured consist of twenty-four quarter barrels of beer and seven eighth barrels, also several jugs and bottles of whisky and wine, besides eighteen bot tles of beer and eleven boxes of cigars. The fixtures consist of billiard, pool and card tables, bar, chairs, etc. The build ing and tables are the property of Geo. Hicks. The outfit of tho interior of the concern will probably be destroyed ac cording to the laws of the state. For the Minnesota State Fair, Held at Hamlin, September 5 to 12, ex cursion tickets will be sold to either St. Paul or Minneapolis at fare one way, with fifty cents added for admission. LKTU EXHIBIT. A Iandy t4uR*r»**tlon l*y an "Agrlfnl- turlMt** for a L.ake County Exhibit at (he Corn Palace. That Madison Sentinel is a great newspaper! It conceives great schemes! It suggests a Lake county exhibit at the Sioux City corn palace. It says such an exhibit ought to include (verbatim): "Wheat, oats, flax, barley, rye in the straw, showing length of straw and head, also grain after threshing also grasses of all kind, including timothy, clover, millet corn on the stalk and husked pumpkins, squashes, melons, potatoes, turnips and garden trucka of all kind fruits, including apples, crabs, plumbs, etc. the products of the dairy, cheese, etc." Now, if the above enumeration of ag ricultural products is not the result of deep study on the part of an "agricul turist," then we will never again hoe our oats or reap our apples. The only thing lacking in the list is a Morgan sheep, an Abdallah pig and a Jersey horse. You see, it would be the easiest thing in the world to get a buphel of "plumbs," pro vided you do not depend upon the arte sian well to supply them. Then, in the absence of "garden trucks" simply bor row a pair of stove trucks at the hard ware store. If you want "crabs" and "cheese," that's easy enough. Simply Correspond with that New Jersey far mer who was shipwrecked on a barren rock in the Atlantic ocean and sub sisted three hundred and twenty days on "crab&and cheese." So far as taking "rye in the straw" to Sioux City, that's all right. Madison and Sioux City both temperance towns, and it would be a disgrace to us and a temptation to Sioux City to distill the rye and carry it in a jug. Now, this scheme is all right. It's a dandy. We're interested in it. But, then, we don't want to neglect our live stock. We must ta}j:e a Plymouth Rock pig to the corn palace with pedi gree attachment. For instance, "Nancy Jane Shanks, he by Honolulu, she by Tulu Rock and Rye, he by Tuti Fruti, •he by Hainbletonian 10, he by Sho shone who was kept in Prince Napoleon's stud in France seventy-five years b. c." Now, there's a pedigree good enough for anybody. We might just as well tack it onto something as not. That's the way a good many pedigrees are obtained— simply printed. We don't very often agree with the Sentinel, but in this ex hibition business we deqire to. be con sidered in the swim. THR HI RtHEH. Onler of Exeroles* at the DMTeswMt ChareheM To-Morrow.

It Paff 1 ThronBh Kast I-nke LEADKB CTORTY i.a*t Sight 1'HI*iit Flnv lladly Dan aged and Totally Ocxttioyca. About 6 o'clock last evening, the heaviest hail stoVm ever experienced in this section prevailed in the east part of Lake county, the town of Wentworth being the centor. This morning, in company with Wm. Tobin, a reporter visited the storm sec tion, and the condition of things pre sented is simply beyond belief. The storm seems to have been about two miles wide, and, as near as we could lo cate it, originated in the neighborhood of G. F. Graff's farm, seven miles north of Wentworth. The storm came up against a heavy northeast wind, and seems to have traveled in a southeaster ly direction. The first damage noted by Mr. Tobin and the reporter this morning was a 40 acre piece of flax, owned by Wm. Colburn, about Ti mile west of Wentworth. This was com pletely destroyed, and Mr. Colburn ex hibited a jack rabbit that he found 'tlead in the wreck, killed by hailstones. Proceeding toward Mr. Tobin's farm, two miles northeast of Wentworth, the grass is badly damaged and the uncut flax is practically destroyed. The amount of hail that fell is simply won der^l. On the open prairie this morn ing at 10 o'clock, sixteen hours after the storm, the hail stones covered the ground to the depth of at least two inches, and the carriage passing through it sounded like driving on a graveled road. In the gulleys, where the rain washed the hailstones together, actually wagon loads of hail could be scooped up, and this sixteen hours after the storm. On Mr. Tobin's farm is 105 acres of un cut flax. An 80-acre tract is yet quite green, and while it is badly pounded down to the ground, Mr. Tobin hopes to recover at least a half crop. In a 25 acre tract only a short distance east of the 80-acre tract, the damage is hardly perceptible. Mr. Tobin escaped better than any of his neighbors, on account of the flax being green, which saved the stalks from being broken. The windows on the east side of Mr. Tobin's farm house are broken, and A. W. StolUman, the tenant, says during the storm the noise was deafening. Returning to Wentworth, we found that great damage bad been done in town. The window s on the east side of buildings, including store fronts on the west side of the street, were demolished, presenting a devastated appearance On the east side of Wm. Lindwurm's residence, the wooden shutters were broken and the windows also. Here we found the greater losers to be Ale^ Fader, 103 acres of flax, completely de stroyed N. S. Fader, 50 acres of flax Charlie Smith, 100 of flax. Joseph Knox, Fred and Thomas Richards and many others are heavy losers. Chas. Theiss, Sr., of Wentworth was quite seriously injured by being struck on the head with a hailstone which penetrated a derby hat. Fred Bergstreeer of Chester township was in the city to-dayv and says th •torm reached his neighborhood, and probably passed on into Minnehaha county. Nels Bergstreeer was injured by a hailstone that struck him on the I arm. Quite a number of slight injuries of this character are reported. Frei Bergstreeer reports having captured two prairie chickens with broken wing caused by the hail. Stock seems to have escaped with a severe pounding. Fanners report that during the storm the cattle huddled to gether and withstood the fusilade \vith as much fortitude as it was possible to command under the circumstances. It is a difficult matter to estimate the damage, but it will probab ly reach at least $30,000 or $40,000. Mr. Tobin estimated the value of his flax crop, 105 acres, before the storm, at $1,200. This, of oourse, is only half de stroyed, but in almost all other cases the destruction is complete. It is safe to say that each -acre of flax destroyed represents a loss of $10. Corn suffered equally as bad as flax in the storm belt, and the gardens are completely drivea into the ground. Stacked grain is un injured, and nearly all of the small grain in the county is in the stack. It was the greatest hail storm ever known in the county, and our people have reason to be thankful that it did not occur earlier in the season. Hay« It Wan a Fountain Pen. Volga Tribune, 28: By a little item and a small cut in the Elkton Record this week it is intimated that the editor of the Tribune left a base ball bat at the hotel when leaving Madison last week. All a mistake, Bro. Pratt. It was a fountain pen, mislaid somewhere abotxt the W. C. T. U. hall. TrsMftonaatftoa In Boath Baketa. Davenport (la.) Democrat: It is only a few short months since that reports of suffering came from South Dakota and appeals were sent to the world for seed grain, feed for live stock, clothing, in fact, help of any sort. Now South Da kota is engaged in building a grain pal ace, the first in the history of the state, which is to open from September 29 to October 3 at Plankinton. This is a great year for transformations, and no state is more jubilant over the orMjpe than South Dakota. We loan money on farm and cit£ prop erty at low rate. KEKNEOI Letter List.
