They are' just being issued. /" Rev. and Mrs. Eighmy were-lip from Lu Verne Jast Wednesday/ and, of course, dropped iu to seethe REI»U»LICAN printing pres/ydo its work. New hay is,toeing brought into town and it... looks' very good. The dealers havje' not yet commenced pressing as ,tiie new hay is too green to keep. The oat harvest is in full blast this week and the universal report is that the crop is good. The straw is heavy and the heads are long and well filled. The annual meeting Of the Ladies Sewing Society of the Congregational church will be held at Mrs. L. II. Smith's Thursday afternoon at three o'clock. Clias. W., son of Rev. I. I.

Lumbar, late principal of the Bancroft schools, will attend the State University at Iowa City the coming term. Mrs. Lumbar goes with him to keep house. That Algona lady has made such good success riding the bicycle-that we will have to give her away. Her name is Shore and she bids fair to rival the Doctor as a wheelman. The boys who went to Des Moines last spring to be examined for the mail service, have received their markings. All of them passed but cannot be induced to tell how they stand. Forest City is to have a flax palace this fall in connection with the Winnebago Agricultural Society Fair. It will be ready for exhibition early in September. Iowa is getti Jig to be a great state for palaces. Rev. Phil C. Hanna was in town Thursday. lie still has hopes of getting that consulship as the administration has promised to put liijn on the list for a vacancy. He remained in town till Monday night. Mr. and Mrs. Geo. E. Clarke started Tuesday for Duluth, from which point they take a steamer and cruise down the lakes and St. Lawrence river. They will visit several points in the east during their absence. Have you trimmed up those trees yet. It was decidedly unpleasant Tuesday morning, right after a long rain, to •walk under trees where the limbs struck your head. If you don't think so, try it. Trim up those trees. The little 10-year-old girl of Fred Miller, of Funton township, got one of her fingers caught in the machinery of a wind mill last Friday and it was badly crushed. Dr. McCoy dressed the finger and says he will save it. The Whittemore and Algona nines played a game of ball at the former place Thursday afternoon. Victory perched on the banner of the Algona club. In a foot race after the game Byram Bartlett beat their best runner. The town well is progressing. Two points have been put down 80 feet into the sand and two more will be put clown. A thin streak of clay was passed through but the rest is all sand and how deep the bed is nobody knows. Letters from the Laugdou surveying party sivy that they are now IflO miles west of Chamberlain. They expect to meet the party coining from the other end of the line about the first of August. The party is healthy and tanned r black by the BU» and hot winds. r' * ' ng a the Rutherford House since Thursday. Dr. Harron is back from a visit to his family in Nebraska. He says after a while he will move his family to Algona. , Hardy Buell, that promising, young merchant of Burt, came down Saturday to see the show and visit his folks over Sunday. . ;• Don't forget to attend the ice cream and lawn social Thursday evening sat the Baptist church. The V. W. Society has charge of it. A most welcome and needed rain fell Monday night, it began early in the evening and was a steady down pour till the next morning. Fred Nicholson was down from Burt Monday and Tuesday, visiting the dentist and before going home came in and put his name on the REPUBLICAN subscription list. 0. II. Brunei- and family left Monday for a few week's visit at their old home in Des Moines. P. R. Grose, of Bancroft, takes his place in the shop during lu's absence. At St. Thomas Mission on Sunday morning the pastor will speak on Baptism and the new Birth. The Sunday School hour has been changed from 12.15 to 10 o'clock a. m. The Georgia Hamlin Dramatic company are billed at the court house for next Tuesday evening, in a play called "Little Vic," a drama in four acts. A good entertainment is promised. Rev. Whitfield visited the camp meeting at Clear Lake last week and delivered one of his best sermons. lie is also there the llrst half of this week, the program there being "Church at. work" week. .--~~ f A party of neighbors met a>- ifhe residence of A. Hough Saturday evening to celebrate his ntty-iirgl/birthday. A pleasant time wasyka'd and all wished him many returner of the -anniversary. Mrs. Ilougji-'p'resented him with a fine easy cliair. ' A rather remarkable case of fire is reported from Scott county. Benjamin Case was hauling a load of hay to the barn when it caught lire and burned up. There was barely time to unhitch the horses. Friction of the wheel on the rack caused the fire. What was once a slough hole north of the school house has been transformed, by Mr. Metzgar, into a good residence lot. It took lots of dirt but the transformation is complete. A sidewalk along the south side, raised to the grade level has been added. A happy-go-lucky crowd of some fifty Algonaites indulged in a picnic down in the timber, near the water-mill, Thursday. The party also did some fishing and on their return to town some good fish stories got into circulation. At any rate the crowd bad a good time. The families of A. W. Webster and the younger Thorson, the tailor, will start overland for Chain Lakes next Monday. They will be gone two weeks or more. They take along a boat— the Volunteer — and all necessary camp equipage and will have a good time generally. A special from Algona to the Sioux City Journal, dated Sunday, says: "Ringling Bros, circus was here yesterday. ' The African boa constrictor choked to death in the morning on a young lamb it was trying to swallow. The snake \yas 22 feet long and otherwise proportioned." dec; Field la lOWftr ,V*- ents ttfc ' Miss Berj?6f , of M.. ing Mis* Ma$fle Winte: Th^little 8-weeks old babe of Mr. and Mrs. Herman Ditner died Monday tiight. .

Mrs. Patterson and son of Clear Lake, and Mrs. Haine, from Minnesota, are visiting the families of A. B. audit. L. Clarke. An officers school of the, Iowa National Guard is being held today and tomorrow at Sioux City. Those who go from here to represent Co. F. are Capt. Thos. F. Cooke and First Sergt. II. J. Edens. T Y" I: Bu ?l 1 ,?< 8 P ecial agent of the .Inter-State Building and Loan Association, of Minneapolis, is in our city soliciting. This company has a local board in Algona which includes some of our best men. Eugene Tellier and C. F. Parker on one side and R.F. Iledrick and Frank Benjamin on the opposing side are just now pitching a game of quoits far the championship of the town. All tern- are good players and throw the shoes right to the mark. A party will leave Algona the last of this week for Okoboji lake to spend a few weeks camping out. The party includes Mr. and Mrs. Ingledew and daughters, of Chicago, Mr, and Mrs. Geo. L. Galbraith, Mrs. Gaylord, Nannie Fraser and Ruth Purvis. The first man to fall into the clutches of the law on acceunt of the original package was captured Monday by the marshal. He was put in the cooler over night and next morning was brought before the mayor, who allowed him to pay the marshal's fee and depart. The Normal School fund has now been raised to $1008.50, the additions since our last issue being A. D. Clarke $25,J. R. Jones $10, B. F." Reed $5, II. ' -,L.M, B, Smith $5,,,c' B. $5, A.

E. two large Saturday handsome to be appreciated, the melon variety, about 12 years old, and is the property of Mrs. J. 11. Jones. A large tile drain is being laid along Jones street, running east of the school house. The object is to give a direct drain to the school building and adjacent lots straight north to the ravine on North street, thus preventing the water going the roundabout way a block further east, around Chris Heise's residence. A couple of tramp musicians made their appearance in town Thursday morning. They played on a couple of instruments and gave what they called music, but it reminded one very much of the definition of music as given by the old ass to the violinist: "Music is sound, my friend, you see, therefore, all sound must music be." At its meeting last week the Sons of Veterans Camp received from a camp in Ohio a lot of raffle tickets on a house and lot. The tickets were to be sold at 10 cents eucli and the lucky one would get a house and lot valued at $1100. The boys soon disposed of the tickets by unanimously ordering them sent back. The S. V. want no lottery in theirs. All stamped envelopes which are spoiled by mistakes committed in sup- erscribing, will be redeemed by the postoffice department at their stamp value. Postage stamps damaged by sticking together in warm or damp weather or from other causes before using, may be returned to the department and their value repaid to the purchaser or exchanged for new stamps. An occurrence somewhat similar to the late Kossuth county meteor recently happened iu New York state. At the village of Naples, during a thunder storm, a loud clap of thunder was heard, at least it sounded like thunder, and immediately there followed a shower of live coals. It is supposed that a meteor burst over $lie village and that the coals were the fragments. Setchell & Setchell $5 and-L; C. Chandler $2.50. ,-'""' Unofficial.census returns give the populatiorf of New York'City at 1,513,- JWt Chicago 1,101,268; Baltimore 448 639; St. Louis 448,134; Minneapolis 180,174; St. Paul 143,009; Kansas City 135,000. In the matter rrf state population New York is first, Pennsylvania second and Illinois third. « It is said that 4,000 tickets were sold to the afternoon performance of Ringling Bros. : circus. That means a small pile of silver yet with all that money in town that day only one man had the corn-age to come in and pay bis subscription to the REPUBLICAN. There is a screw loose somewhere. The board of trustees of the Normal School are still corresponding with parties relating to the princijalship of the school, but they expect to» know in a few days for certain who> the new man -will be. It is understood! that the arrangements with Prof. Hodges, of Shenaoadoah, have fallen through. It was reported on the street Thursday morning by several parties that along ii!> the night, about two.'V clock, they were aroused from slumber and could Hear a roaring sound away to the north like the rumbling of a- heavy storm. The dailies of that day msport- ed a heavy storm not far from St. Paul during the night but it does not seem possible that any sound of that storm could reach Algona. The worst result of the tramp, gang's visit to Algona last Friday, so* for as we can team, is felt in the IT... J>. M. office. Rob. Warren was ow£t ukling and his horse got scared (itwaa-eiiough to scare anything) at the b«k& and turning sharply upset the buggj. The horse ran a few rods and stopped. Bob sprained his left ankle pretty badly and has been laid off from work ever since. We hope to see Mia out soon. Dr. Ban- reports an accident from his farm Sunday. The man wlto is on the place, Herman Ditner, had been out with a mare, leaving the sucking colt at home. On coming home and before he got the mare unharnessed the colt y«t in a plea for its rights. Its hind feet flew backward one taking Mr. Ditner on the chin, knocking several teeth loose, and the other foot hit him in the stomach. He was knocked senseless and did not regain full consciousness for several hours. A man named A, C. Fish, faom near Lu Verne, was in town Saturday with a large white stallion, which he- put in one of the stalls on the fair ground. The horse, a large and powerful animal, kicked the dooj- down and got out. He was captured near the yard and held for the owner. J. W. Wads worth and Peter Winkel, on hearing that the barn door was kicked down, went to the ground and secured a harness, which was in the stall, and hold it for damages. The man came around and asked for the harness, promising faithfully to pay the damage, and got it, when he skipped out. Pete is waiting for his Fish but it is doubtful if he catches him. Dr. Gladwin, for eighteen years a missionary in India, will deliver a lecture in the M. E. church next Thurs- dry evening. His subject will be the the "Women of India." Everyone is urged to ask any question that they may choose about India, in writing, and send them up to the desk and at close of the lecture the Doctor will answer the questions. The children are requested to meet at the church at seven o'clock, as he has something specially to tell them and will also show them several things which he has brought from India. Let everyone turn out and hear about the women of India. Treasurer Lautry has been busy notifying delinquents about their personal taxes. The whole of the county has been notified, excepting Algona and that will be finished this week. It is astonishing what neglect is shown in this matter. Lots or people quite forget that they have any tax to pay till a notice comes from the treasurer. Another thing Mr. Lantry proposes doiu, is to clear the re<xw4s $ ill — Andrew Cosgtove, living north of Wesley, had a swarm of bees come ' him last summer. The bees found .. hole in the side of. his house, wlie're they entered and built - their hive. This summer they swarmed and the new swarm found quarters between the- studding. Now Mr, Cosgrove wants to know how to get Hd ol'his visitors. Bert Edmonds returned Monday night from Spencer, where he attended the state meeting of wheelmen. Going out he made the trip on his bicycle in 7* hours. The distance is. about fifty- five miles. He reports about 70 wheels in the parade and had a good time in general. A man named Green, from Des Moines, won the state championship and a Spencer man came in second. -. •. . The dailies of last week reported an infant born at Nic'etown, Penn., that tokes the cake for sike. Its weight at birth was twenty-five pounds. .This "ig, little koy ia as large as the average child of three nlonths. He is bright and hearty and all his limbs are well developed. He crows and laughs incessantly and is in the best of health. The mother, Mrs. Hardegan, who is 35 years old, is a perfect giantess, over six teet tall and proportionately built. The entertainment given at the Congregational church last evening by Ella June Meade andLu B. Cake was a rich treat to the audience. Mrs. Cake has a voice of wonderful compass -and it is perfectly trained. Her rendering of the Swiss echoes was fine as also her recitation of how Grant saved the Union. Mr. Cake was also crood in his line as an imitator of Bill Nye, the old farmer, and the colored preacher. In singing their voices blend richly together. Each one was encored more than- once and the audience was kept in a continuous roar of laughter and the most rapt attention. Next-week on Tuesday Miss Mary Iverson, a missionary from Moroni, Utah, accompanied by Mrs. Negus, the eonference secretary, will be glad to sueet all the ladies of Algona at Mrs. Whitfield's at three o'clock for an afternoon visit and for a general talk on missionary matters. At six o'clock tea will be served to which* the gentlemen aii» most cordially invited. In the eve- ni-ng there will be apub&c meeting at the-M. E. church" whew Miss Iverson wilib tell us about her work among the MouBQons. She desires all the children to b* present as she wants to talk to them particularly for a little time. Come-one, come all. Th* movement is now ripe for a large four front brick block on the south side of State street,.between the Chriscfeilles and Robinson buildings. Mr. Baeon, who has bought the McCall property wishes to build but will not do-so, till next year arwt then he wants the three property* owners on each side to join with hinvand put up a large;brick. Theo. OhrSchilles and Mr. Miaklev own the buildings on the oast ami Pete Purvis the one on the west—ails men of means to put into such a scheme. Such a building would be- a deeided improvement and would intake t«i nearly solid bloek of brick that side of the steeet. .Mrs. Thos. McArthur died Friday roorningn at her home a few miles north- wt st of Algona. She was only 22 years ok I and bad been married but a little over a year. Her untimely death is mourned-by all and the sympathy of the ne ighboahood is extended to Mr. Mc- Arthurin his hour of bereavement. Tl ie funeral was held at the residence ba tin-day, service being conducted by He v, I. M. Smith and the remains were taken ta Whittemore for interment. Mrs. McArthur's maiden name was Bertha Keeper and she was born in Illi nois in 1868. She was esteemed by all who knew her and in he* last sick- lies is she expressed her willingness to go, and her faith in the Saviour. She leaves a husband and son. The Bungling Bros, circus was in town Saturday and gave am exhibition, winch im general, is well spoken of. The streett parade was nofc very long but was very good. The animal exhibit wa» good. One ofi'tbe cutest things was a baby lion, whfeh was admired by all. With one or two exceptions the*a»imals were in fine condition. Tie horses were also sleek and fine looking. Of the circas performance itself it was as good as the average. Sharpers were looked! for, but to thecredSfcof the show be ft said none showed their hand. As far as can be learned tfeere were none on the street during the day. The attendance was large and represented every class of individuals. Conspicuous among the crowd were several women with babies m their arms, and in the side tent there was a perfect jam and many people were UKComfortably crowded.

Hews fortheVeteransHStmft sera in Town Who Want Help-City Council, A MAN O* VEUVE. It is not every man who has nerve paw er enough to set his own arm when i is broken but Myron H, Hare is one o those men. Thursday morning he was working for Charley Walker and Whi working in the barn around the horses another horse came in from the yart and the horses got to kicking. In some way Hare in reaching out his right arm was struck by the hoof of the horse and his arm struck against the wall. A second kick in the same place broke both bones near the wrist. His arm droppet oven but he, gritting his teeth, took hold of it with his left hand and straightened it out, put the bones together and held it there while he went to the house and got it bandaged They at once came to town and to Dr McCoy, who said the arm was properlj set and he supplied the necessarj splints and bandages and rebound the broken member. Mr. Hare said he could feel the bones grate togethei when he set it but he made up his mine it would be less painful to set it then than to wait till the arm had swollen. THE SOUTHEBN PKOBtEM. Prof. Dodge, of Berea, Kentucky who has been in town during the week looking into the Normal School matter, delivered sermons at the Congregational church Sunday morning and evening. His evening subject was the "Southern Problem.^ This he called ttlie leading subject o* the times. He described the social aosd civil relations >3 the two colors c* the South and bought that the only way to remedy existing evils lay in th«- education of the colored people, and that, too, in be- district school in eompanionship witl» the white children- This at pres- nt aould not be, as the whites refused o allow the blacks to> attend their schools or to allow their children to go to a school where black children went. As a result the south had a double system of district schools — one for the white-ami one for the colored children. This made the educational expense double- what it should be. That the two ceuld be educated together he proved by giving a detailed account of a college-vrhere he lived in which there was BIO- distinction made- as to color. The pen cent, of illiteracy among the colored.population was about 70, and what was. needed was to educate them up to the standard of ihteJligent citizenship THE G. A. K. BOYS. For tlw national encampment, G-. A. K, to be held in Boston next month, special! provisions are being made for the Iowa veterans. The headquarters train Ho* the department will start for Boston^ leaving Cedar EapMs at 8:40 p. m., Friday, August 8, over the Chicago, Milwaukee & St.PaulEailway.mak- ing connection at Marion with trains from Sioux City, Councils Bluffs ' and DesMbines. At Oxford Junction and at Sabiitla. connection will Be made with trainst-.bearing delegations* from other parts of the state. The "Special Iowa TrainT will be made up iaChicago Saturday afternoon, August a, and run to Boston over the Lake Show, with choice of routes from Buffalo over the New York Central and Boston i and Albany or via. Clayton, the St. Laswence river, Montreal and the White mountains. In either case the train wfll go to Niagara Falls. The headquarters party will go through, reaching. Boston early Monday morning. Commander B. P. MiUkurges all to go as follows: "A*n earnest and cordial invitation is ext&nded to the comrades throughout the department, to the members of the W.

The Iowa headquarters in Chicago will be at the Atlantic Hotel on Aug- The veterans are requested wear the Grand Army uniform carry a cane. A COLOIIE1> , One of the dirtiest and most ragged band of rovers, that Algona has seen for a long time came into town Ifriday afternoon. They were beggars coming to town sure but none of them had on velvet gowns. It was just tl* other way— rags and tags. The party was made up of several men, women and children, who claimed to be natives of Turkey. The band roved aixmnd town getting what they could, giving an ex. hibition with their bears~-<tf which they had three— and at evening moved off toward the Milwaukee <J$pot where they camped. A WORTHY CASE A man. entered the fice Saturday afternoon with a tioa paper, saying W» name was C. Higbee and of- one ? of died aad he wa* tryin fofenj , ««*ter one. of edufne imaum, But ohgoinff out on the street spofl after .we saw that band of Turkish rovers tfttd atouse came to the concitisioti that the matt with the paper was one of the same pfaag and that we had been roped in. A «»e*t many other people thought the same thing. But subsequent events prove that this man did not belong to the ttamp outfit and that he was telling a straight story. He said he was camped at the water mill and a visit to that place showed a movers' wagon and only dae horse. The wagon was arranged fortwo horses but a singletree on the end of the tongue showed that it bad been drawn by one horse. Evidently the man was all right and his case was otoe worthy of help. But there are so many beggars around these days that it is hard to distinguish between a case of genuine want and a professional mendicant. , COUNCIL BOINOS. The city council seems to be getting tired of waiting for the well to be completed. The time of the contract has expired and at a meeting Wednesday evening the council passed the following: Resolved, That the city clerk is hereby instructed to notify M. Stephens, Esq., (Jeo. E. Clarke, Esq.j and A. A.
