Tuesday evening, July 22, 1800, for work. A full attendance is desired. By order of Worthy Matron. The Woochvorth house near the Northwestern track has been bought by si Mr. Koppen, of Ramsay township, who will move his family to Algona and make it their home. Jas. E., son of llev. Whitfield, of this place, is here on a visit for a few Weeks. He is in the dry goods business and is going out on the Northern Pacific on a prospecting trip. The circus men mean business in the line of advertising. Last Saturday every team in Lucy's livery barn was out, traveling the country in every direction,the driver scattering circus bills as he went. Since our inquiries last Aveek as to what disposition had been made of the township flag, competed for the fourth, Union township put in a claim for it and was awarded the banner. That township claimed 34 teams in the procession. Simon Best, of northeast Portland, is making things fly. Coming here about three years ago from Butler county he bought a quarter section of laud and went to work. He has built him a good house and is now getting ready to build a large barn. T. Lyons is a, new-comer from Palo Alto county, settling near Buffalo Fork. He has already built one of the finest barns in the county— 44x52 feet, and is now erecting a dwelling house 22x24 with 1« foot posts. The family are living in the barn for the present. J. W. Stott, of Portland township, has one of the finest pieces of corn in the county and he is justly proud of it. The Held is now in tassel. This is the seventh crop of corn from the same field, in succession, and Mr. Stott is of the opinion that corn is not a hard crop on the land. We can read the weather signals all right but the next important thing is to have the signals read the weather. Friday the signals said warmer and f air weather but in the afternoon there came up from the region of the north wind a pretty sharp shower and for a few minutes it rained hard. The ruin storm of lust Friday was only a local shower , but us it caine up from the northwest it had all the threatening appearances of a severe storm. Between here und WestBend, however, not a drop of rain fell. The storm seemed to split somewhere above Whittemore, one-half going to the east and the other to the west. Robt. Ingram and Martin Olson, of (Jar field township, are among the new comers to fertile Kossuth this season. The former is from Cedar county, and has purchased a quarter section of land, broke up 70 acres and sowed it to flax. lie has built a good and substantial house and made other improvements. Mr. Olson is from Humboldt county. He also bought 160 acres of laud and put up a fine residence. These men may be classed among our best farmers. JMtetify Thompson was ovet from whitfcemore Sunday.

The barley harvest is in full blast, some farmers having commenced Saturday. Though not an extra crop, it is fairly good. Wheat and oats will soon be ready for the sickle. > The applications for pensions under the new law are being made very fast. Believing the law will be of interest to all, especially the old soldiers, we give it in full in another column. Mr. and Mrs. E. G.

Business at Sioux City will take part of his time and the remainder will probably be spent with his family at Laurens.

Smith of Webster City and J. G. Smith, II. Duraut, S. S. Sessions, Dr. West and A. F. Daily, of Algona. The State Association of Wheelmen meets at Spencer Saturday of this week. Capt. Cooke and Bert Edmunds, of this place will be in attendance. Bert expects to start Thursday and make the trip on his wheel. Capt. Copke went to Spirit Lake Tuesday and will go from there to Spencer. After the meet the whole body will ride to the lakes for an outing. Said a man in aur hearing: "This is getting to be a terrible big county—not that there is any more land in it but there are lots more people in it." It is literally true. All reports from the north part of the county are to the ef- f ectjthatit is settling up rapidly and that too, by a class of thrifty, wide-awake and enterprising farmers. Let the good work go on. The fourth has come and gone; the circus is coming, and it too will soon be gone; those low hanging limbs are still there and the anxious pedestrian as he dodges in and out among them on his journeys along the sidewalks, wonders when they will be gone. We are in this tight to the finish and are bound to have those trees trimmed up, so don't throw this paper down and say we don't mean you. An Indian burial place was unearthed near Livermore the fourth. Parties were boring a hole in which to plant the flag staff and about 20 inches below the surface werci found some human bones. Further investigation resulted in more rinds. The braves had been buried in a sitting posture and the grave is located on a high mound overlooking the river, about a mile and a half southeast of Livermere.

Crop Report. 1 The Weather and Crop Bulletin reports us follows", for the week ending Friday last: The week has been very favorable for haying and harvesting operations, which have been carried on vigorously, the crop being gathered in fine condition. The excessive heat hastened maturity of spring wheat, oats und barley, causing u shrinkage of the grain in some localities; but generally the cereal crops will make a fair yield. Corn is in a very promising condition, not being materially damaged us yet by the drouth except in a very limited urea. With favorable conditions it will be nearly, if not quite up to the big yield of last year. The People's Favorite Remedy will positively cure catarrh, bronchitis, liver, kidney aud stomach trouble or throat affection. The Infallible Rheumatism Remedy will positively cure rheumatism.

Sheetz. 32-42 Squire Raymond on Original Packages Lu Verne News: Squire Raymond took in the exercises at Patton's grove on the afternoon of the Fourth, and when ready to come home found something in his buggy seat. He thought first that someone had been playing a trick on him, but upon further investigation found that it was an original package in the shape of a wee sweet baby which some fond mother had laid away there for want of a better place and which was soundly sleeping. The little one was soon claimed by its parent and removed, but no sooner was it taken away than -the amiable Squire upon again investigating the interior of his carriage found another sleeping cherub snugly tucked away under the seat. The Squire looked just a little "anxious" as he started out in search of an owner for infant number two, while the lookers-on indulged in a general ull-rouud smile. A claimant for the second package was finally found, however, and the Squire, after a careful scruting of the cushions and lap-robe, and an almost inaudible remark about this country being hard to beat for something, he made his escape and pulled for town. GOOD ADVICE, SHOWING RESULT. Edward Silvey, Chicago, gives testimony: "My wife had Catarrh twenty- live years; suffered severely for six years before she began to use your remedy. Unable to breathe except through the mou.th; in a most critical condition. Tried everything without relief, when Dr. Streeter advised bwr to buy Clarke's Extract of Flax (Papillion) Catarrh Cure. Relief followed immediately. She continued to use it until she is now entirely cured. Her health, has not been so good in many years." Price fl. Wash the baby with Clarke's Flax Soap; 85 cents. L. A. Sheetz, druggist, now has tbe Flax Remedies on hand" Q Bargains in remnants at Galbraith's. AFTER THE NORMAL SCHOOL Death of Mm Myers—Heal Estate Cliaiigeg—Who is Kicker—Other THIS NOttMAL SCttOOfc. Prof. Hodges, of Shenattdbaff, of whom iaehtion Was made last week ns here looking over the normal school prospect, remained here till Saturday mornhig, when he Went to Waterloo. Prof, Hodges made the board this proposition. He will take the school and run it, bearing all expenses himself, on condition that the board furnish him a residence free and give him $5 each for the first 100 pupils, $4 for the second 100, $3 for the third 100 pupils, and so on. The board has been busy during the week circulating a subscription paper and securing pledges for the support of the school and have met with good success. With few exceptions, our citizens are putting poWn their names without any urging, each one seeing that Algona has a reputation at stake in this normal school and that to let the school die at this stage of the game would be worse than defeat. The school will be pushed ahead. The board has not as yet closed a contract with anyonfe, and whether they hire Mr. Hodges or someone else, they will secure a competent head for the school and close a contract very soon. Following is the paper that is being circulated with the names of those who liave signed and the amounts they liave pledged. Up to yesterday noon the amount pledged was $921 and it is thought that $1,500 can be easily raised: We, the undersigned, agree to pay to ihe Board of Trustees of the Northern Lowa Normal School, yearly, for the ierm of the ensuing two years, the sums set opposite our respective names for the maintenance ot said school, said sums'to be paid at the expiration of each school year: VVHIngUam $50 Lewis H Smith §co Ambrose A Oall .60 GeoCCalS 50 A L Hudson (1st yr) CO J W Robinson 25 CLLund 25 Geo L Galbraith 25 THLantry 25 Geo K Clarke 25 JJ Wilson 25 BHHutchins 25 J W Wadsworth 15 Burant Bros 15 DBTowusend 10 Harvey Ingham 10 E « Bowyer 10 OhriscliiUes&Uerbstlo James Taylor 10 A A Branson 10 H K Hess 10 Bailey Bros 10 L A Sheetz 10 James Barr 10 Bertha Carey 10 M Stephens 10 M Starr 10 Grange Store 10 OC Chubb 10 HC McCoy 10 \V K Ferguson 10 J 0 Blackford 10 Dingley & Moil'att 10 Fred Bonnoy 10 F E Wolcott 5 W F darter 5 J It Laird .

And we might retoark, in sslfltf, said wotframftie was almightjr dear at any o! the above pi-icee. If the fireworks could have been stild fot the trice of the proj?ramme (Whitih is doubtful) then Algona triight have ffofc first cost on them. Some of our citizens got so in the afternoon they date not look at ah Algonaite for fear of having to put up a quarter. Mr. Algona, next time you attempt celebrating the Fourth throw open your gates ond give a free entertainment. "The above is from the Whittemore correspondence to the Lu Verne News and is evidently from a kicker from away back. If Algona had paid his railroad fare from Whittemore, his. bus fare from the depot, his bills at the lemonade and peanut stands, his dinner bill at the hotel, and given him permission to enter any and all' of the stores and help himself to whatever he wanted free of cost, no doubt this kicker would have found occasion to kick because a free dray was not fur- nisbed him on which to take his things iome. LOOK OUT EOK CROOKS. Next Saturday is circus day— the time when Ringling Bros, great show will exhibit in Algona. Of the show itself, rumor says it is as good, as -the average, and we have it on the authority of one of the brothers that there are no sharp- ers or confidence men connected with the outfit. Be that as it may, that such nimble fingered gentry will be in town that day is unquestioned. Whether ihey have any connection with the show or not they will be here. They follow the circus as naturally as a shark fol- ows the vessel that has sickness on board, ready to snap up the first victim that falls in their way. They want a :rowd in which to work and the circus draws just such a crowd. The city authorities should see to it that no such iharacters are given a place on the street for the purpose of working their nefarious games. A word to the wise s sufficient, and a cold shoulder given ;o these fellows will be to the financial advantage of our citizens. But the over-wise will only learn by experience ind some of them are ever ready to be •oped in each succeeding year. Beware of crooks, and when a man offers to give you in any way, two dollars for one put him down as a trickster. ' IM5ATH OF MKS. MVERS. Scarce had the news of the birth of a son to Mr. and Mrs. Myers, on Monday, been received ere there came the sad news that the mother could not live but must give up her own life for that of her offspring. Growing rapidly worse on Wednesday, she sank into an unconscious condition and died about half past three o'clock Thursday afternoon, Funeral services were held at the residence at 7:80 Friday evening, Conducted by Rev. Bowen of the Episcopal mission, of which society deceased was a member, and tbe remains were taken on the 10 o'clock passenger, Accompanied by Mr. Myers und little ejrl, Mrs. Trotter, mother of deceased, and Mr. Myers'mother, who bad just srrived that afternoon from Chicago, tp Bloomington, Illinois, where they ere laid to rest beside thos.e of her iather.

F, Coonan and Terrance McDonnell, of Emmetsburg. Mr. Reed received as compensation therefor $1,050 cash and a quarter section of laud 10 miles south of Chamberlain, Dakota. These men had been trying for several days to rent a building but failing in this they finally concluded to buy, as it was their only way to secure room to open up in the original package bust ness. Another sale was completed last week by which Mrs. McCall yields up }$ff ownership to tbe property i» which i| located the Setchell millinery store The purchaser is a Mr. Bacon from Wisconsin, He is a brother of E. F Bacon, of Wesley. The purchase price 2,500. It is not yet learned wh»t business Mr. Bacon will engage in but rumor credits him with a dry gttttt* BH- The Setchells will move the $&i)fraftfc bttlfoifrfr, of teteifa,, where they have ft fine location. . ON PALESTINE. The illustrated lecture on 'Palestine, Syria and Egypt, given by ''Thomas S.' Stileeba, at the Baptist church last Thursday evening, was a very good one. The speaker is a native of Syria, hav- ng been born and brought up in the supposed region of the garden of Eden. The illustrations of the holy countries were many of them taken by himself about seven years ago. They were thrown on canvas by the aid of a stereopticon and, barring the exception that ;hey were not clearly brought out, were all good ones. The young student has been in this country three years, at;ending Carleton College, Minn. He speaks English a little brokenly but uses fine thoughts. The lecture was a good one and very instructive, COUNCIL OF RECOGNITION. Persuant to call, a council of recognition met with the First Baptist church in Whittemore, Iowa, July 10, 1890. Delegates were present representing he .following churches,— Algona, Ayrshire, Bancroft, Estherville, Humboldt, Jordan's Grove, Linn Grove, Livermore, Marathon, Pocahontas,llenwick, Sioux Rapids, Vernon, Vinton and Whittemore, Rev.

Hand of Welcome, Rev. C. N. Wilcox, Renwick. Charge to the church, Rev. F. M, Smith, Algona. The following day was devoted to a Sunday school convention of the churches named above, Rev, F. Eldridge being in the chair. L. A. CUMMJNS, Clerk of the council. Day, Every important holiday event is known by some popular name. The Fourth of July is no more a general holiday than tbe one oa which the great Ringling Bros. Monster Railroad Shows appear; and so universally has this become established that the advent of the enormous institution is known far and near as RingUng Day. Tbe daily expenses of these monster shows are so great that, if their reputation was not eo gooc that all feel they would be great losers if they missed seeing them, the Big Show could not live a month. Thisiswby schools, factories, business places, am even legislatures and courts are closed wnen they come, and all transportation companies can afford to give t&eir pat ions cheap excursion rates, RingUng Day comes this year at AJgosi, 6a.tuKUj July IV. fttl tho f act of the soldlor'a death by Of ally wOflnd, InjufJV cftSttalHy, Of wnse, tfhlch under the conditions find lifflUftttefls of existing laws would have efltHled him to an invalid pension, and the fad that the soldier left no widow ot minor children having been shown M re* tired by law, It shall be necessary only to shtiW by competent and sufficient fevi- dehcfe that such parent or patents are without other present means of support thau their own manual labor ot tbe cofr tributlons of others not legally bound for their support; Provided, That all pensions allowed to dependent parents under this act shall commence front the date of the filing of the application hereunder and continuefno longer than the existence of their dependence.
