Renfrew of Bancroft, will orate, and all the other necessaries will be there in abundance. Miss EvaLantry now has charge of the telegraphing in the postoffice. Miss Eva is a fine operator. Ell Dalton who has been doing the work so satisfactorily, will doubtless find a channel of usefulness before long. A runaway Thursday noon furnished a little excitement. The team belonged to a farmer from Wesley township and had been left untied on the street. Algona should have an ordinance against leaving teams unhitched. The Ringling Bros, are making a larger spread of bill boards than any show that has ever come to Algona. J. M.

The show itself is said to be in proportion to the advertising that is beiner done. An open air concert was given on the street Saturday evening by the Barney Brothers. Of course there was the usual collection but the entertainment was a good one of its kind. The bone playing by one of the brothers was particularly good. Lulu Paine, daughter of Amasa Paine one day last week went to the sink to get a drink of water. A teacup containing gasoline was setting there and this cup site got hold of and took a drink. A prompt emetic saved from any disastrous results. Courier: The Upper Des Moines confesses that O. E. Palmer had the nightmare the other night after reading it just before retiring.

The Fourth is goinc: to' bring to Algona the biggest crowd ever seen here, llns expectation should suggest to city authorities and to the street commissioners in particular, the desirability or having the big weeds cut down, so that the children will not get lost.

Dake is now general superintendent of the Pentecost Bands of the Free Methodist church with head-quarters at Chicago. He comes to Algona to as- /ist iri the camp meeting and in that ' ;?afcjty is a man of great power. * occu "'ed at the residence of Mr. Lane in Buffalo township, last Thursday, the parties to the contract being Mr. Robert Lane and Mrs. Bertha isenberger. Rev. I. I. Thompson performed the ceremony. About 80 invited guests were present. Congratulations are extended to Mr. and Mrs. Lane by a host of admiring friends. The sixth regiment, L N. G. of which Co. F. is a part, will hold its annual encampment at Spirit Lake commencing August 18th and holding to the 23rd. The 2d regiment of regulars from Omaha will camp with them.

That is what the dear people call warm weather and the cooler temperature of this week is decidedly welcome. Mi-, and Mrs. Elder and four children, of Manson, were badly poisoned last week by milk. The milk which had stood.over night was noticed to be somewhat acid in the morning and to rectify it some saleratus had .been used to sweeten it. Such cases as these are frequently reported where slightly soured milk has developed a deadly poison from chemical changes at present but little understood. Miss Louisa Steinman is the name of a young lady living on the J. D. Shadle place, about two miles north of Algona.' She is deaf and dumb, but in spite of this sad affliction she has learned how to do all kinds of plain and fancy sewing and solicits the patronage of the public. She will go to the houses to sew and those who can give her work will confer a favor as well as obtain the services of a skilled worker. The Algona iron foundry has passed into the hands of Will Spencer, who bought the same at sheriff sale in order to secure himself on several chattel mortgages which he held. The foundry seems to be having a hard row to hoe and the citizens of Algona and county generally would be glad t;o see it placed on a good and paying basis. It is understood that C. F. Brooks will continue as local manager of the foundry. At the camp meeting Monday afternoon Mrs. Schamuiels, who has been for some time in Africa as a missionary, gave a very interesting talk on her and her husband's work among the Zulus. As a people she said they were eager to hear the gospel. She related several incidents all showing the work of the missionary to be one of hardship. She exhibited several articles of native dress, or rather ornaments, for in their native state they wear no clothing. The council held a meeting Saturday evening and allowed a number of bills. A sidewalk was ordered built along the south side of block 23—the block east of the Rutherford House. The street and alley committee were instructed to look into the drainage system of the block on which Chris Heise lives. It is so poorly drained that stagnant water is on the surface long after a heavy rain. Another good thing they did was to order the streets sprinkled the night before the fourth. A man was passing along the sidewalk yesterday morning when his hat caught against the limb of a tree and the whole top was nearly torn off. This is but a gentle reminder of the fact that trees all over town hang their low limbs down over the sidewalks and the passer by is obliged to keep bobbing about continually. Trim up your trees, everybody and don't wait one for another. Make your own residence grounds and street front pretty and your neighbor will go and do likewise. Arthur Tellier and C. W. Stockwell didn't go to Idaho after all. After thinking it all oyer they concluded that this was not the proper time to make such a change of climate, es How It Will Be Observed in Algona—Iastruction and Amusement tot All.

Supervisor* iu Adjourned Session—They Create a New Township uiirt Name It Harrison—The IHimitcs. ALGONA, June 30, '90—Board met at 1 p. m., members all present except M. O'llourke.

But the veil soon lifted and one saw the e&aee eye for business. We rented a very comfortable house that day, and at once began living as of yore. In four or five days we were nicely settled,since which time we have been studying the city from a business man's standpoint. Themistocles, an Athenian, at a feast was asked to touch the lute. He said, "he could not fiddle but yet he could make a small town a great city." I could not but think as I gazed upon the Phoenix-like rebuilding of this city and saw the brick and granite structures rising five and six stories on almost every lot in the burnt district, that there must be many Themistocles here, who, while they could not fiddle, they could make great cities out of small ones. On the other hand, when I saw upon the streets the idle and the vicious, I could but realize that there were enough who could cunningly play the violin, and instead of building a great state could very speedily bring a great estate to ruin and bankruptcy. I find our friend R. J. Danson, very pleasantly situated in one of the most elegant law offices in the city. He is associated with Judge Prather, a gentleman of extended law practice, and of much culture and refinement. Paine, McCall and Brooks Bros, are working at their different trades and by their example of true citizenship, are as ever an honor to the town from whence they came. Mr. Annis and myself have opened an office and are trying to get into the current of business with our heads up stream. If " persistent and honest endeavor will accomplish anything here as in older states, we shall get there. As to our likes or dislikes of the city and climate, etc., we are not prepared as yet to pass judgement. On the whole our families are well pleased, and are enjoying the pleasant drives in and about the city. At some future time I will give a more extended description of our surroundings. J. M.

REI'UIILIC-AN: I wish to send pleasant greeting to my many friends in Kossuth and I take the liberty of your offered columns for that purpose. While to you it may not be a gratification but this aiuch communion, although great space intervenes, is to me a gratification which none but the wanderer from the fold can fully appreciate, Our journey from Algona to this rushing city of the mountains was pleasant but brief. Nothing occurred on the route worthy of mention, except a few hours of very pleasant chat with all the old Algonians resident in Minneapolis. They all seemed happy, and the meeting was one long to be remembered, as the early associations in Algona was the pleasant theme. The third morning after our departure, we landed in this new city, the borne of our adoption; at least for the present. We were met at the depot by Mr. a. M. Annis, B. B. Paterson, J. L. Paine, Jr., and Mrs. R. J. Daneon, and the hearty handshaking showed that though we were in a strange land we w$re not friendless. The pJatforie, 400 f«e$ IPJJ« at the _ 394!

Of course we had not seen it and so told him, whereupon he unfolded from its covering a book of good dimensions, with wooden covers, and covered over with drawings of ears of corn. The back bore the title, "Corn is King." But the joke of the catalogue came in when we attempted to open it, for out leaped a wooden serpent with a pin in its mouth and gently pricked ourhand.| The whole contrivance is neatly made! and very perfectly represents a well bound book. Mr. Goddard did this piece of mechanism with his jack-knife at odd moments and is having lots of fun taking subscriptions. The contents of the book are very pointed. THIS TOWN W15M,. The pump for the town well arrived last week and on Friday morning an ' engine was brought down from the foundry and preparations were at once made for work. Towards evening the pump was started but it did not work satisfactorily so some alterations were made in the pulleys, etc. Saturday a new trial was made and it worked all right for a time, throwing out a stream of water at the rate of a pail full every seven seconds. Then trouble began to come in again. The pump would slip several strokes and then throw water for a few strokes, going by fits and starts. The pump was finally pulled out and it was found that the sand had worked in through the sand screen and settled on the valves sufficiently to check their action. The most of the day was spent in experimentin the pump was finally given u failure. The sand is a terror diggers. Mr. Smith will now tr, sink the curb a couple of feet into sand by digging out the sand unu the water, with long handled shovel, which is about all that he can do with the well. GOOD TKMPtAKS OliGANIZK. There was a meeting of the several Good Templar lodges of the county held in Algona last Friday for the purpose of forming a county organization. Delegates were present from Bancroft, Burt, Whittemore and Wesley and also from Britt, Corwith and West Bend. These latter delegates were allowed seats in the meeting. The afternoon meeting was held in the Grange Hall, and after a timely discussion a county organization was perfected with the following officers: 2f. L. Cotton, Whittemore, C. T.; Mrs. T. II. Conner, V. T.; N. J. Skinner, Bancroft, Sec.-, Miss Dunsmore, Britt, Treas. A look-out committee was also appointed for the purpose of helping weak lodges, building up new ones and in a general way to help along the cause. The committee is N. J. Skinner, Mrs. Ilotelliug, C. G. Wright, Angie Moore and Mrs. Dr. Garfield. The next meeting will be held at Whittemore. The order has a system of medal prizes to be given for the best recitations. Each county competes for a silver medal and the winner of that is entitled to enter the state contest for a gold medal. The winner of the gold medal is then entitled to enter the national contest for a diamond medal. For the coming county meeting Dr. Garfield offers some cash prizes for the best select reading and the best original essay. THK CAMP MEETING. The Free Methodist Camp Meeting has been in progress since Thursday last in the Call park north of the F. M. church. A large tent is spread and provided with seats for the daily services and there are about 15 private tents on the ground. Several ministers from abroad are present and they are making a rousing meeting. Rev. Dake.the leader, is an able speaker and when he gets warmed up he strikes blows from the shoulder. Nothing escapes him. And as he sees things so he speaks and the shouts of amen that answer his telling points indicate the enthusiasm of his people. We hear only one complaint against them and that is that they are so noisy the residents of the north side of town can get no sleep till the meetings break up and that is often near the small hours of the night. Several converts are reported. The meet* ing closes this evening. C»Q1> BKPQJIT, The Iowa Weather and Crop Bulletin for the week ending June 27, reports as follows: The chief features of the weather during the past week were low bar> pmeter, very high temperature, and a high percentage of relative humidity, wttu more than an averaae amount of sunshine.
