A meeting of the business men of the town was held in the court house Monday evening to discuss matters relative to the business interests of the town. The Thorington is now one of the best managed hotels in this part of the state and is growing more popuFar every day under its new management. L. Chandler returned from Des Moines Friday.

Wallace & Reed, of this place had the only butter extractor (in exhibition at the State Fair, and their exhibit attracted no little attention and was one of the leading features of the dairy department. Algona was well represented in the "high places" at the fair. S. S.

Editors Ingham, of the Upper Des Moines, and Hiuchon, of the Courier, have prominent positions upon the program, According to an estimate of gupt- Near in last week's Democrat, Palo Alto county has 9,209 inhabitants. Emmetsburg is credited with 1,585, Butn- veu 588 and West Bend 325 inhabitants. In 1880 the county had only 4,131 peo- E le, so that the increase in population as been truly great, West Bend didn't figure in the Census of >80 at tell, ahd If we now have 826 It to not a bad showing by any means.—West fiend Journal. The action of the school board in securing the services of Miss Fahehstock to give instruction in vocal music to the pupils of the city schools meets with universal approval. The Upper Des Moines Baptist Association will begin its annual meeting tomorrow evening at Ilumboldt. Several will go to attend the meeting. There will be the usual services at the Baptist church next Sunday. The Bishop of Iowa will visit St. Thomas' Mission on the 28rd day of this month.

Misses Mary Smith and Josie and Louise McCoy left for the University of Minnesota Monday,Miss Nettie Durant left for Iowa college' at Grinnell, and Miss Cornie Ingbam and Jessamine Jones for the State University of Iowa. D. A. Haggard, Kossuth county's auctioneer, seems to be getting quite a reputation as being one of the best auctioneers of farm property in this part of the country. He lias sales all over this part of the state, and is constantly busy. The mayor of Algona has prohibited ladies from using baby carriages on the sidewalks of that city. He evidently is not fond of babies. This order will certainly cause a decrease in the population of that city.—Emmetsburg Democrat. Wartman Bros., of Ramsey, seem to be doing a very good business. A country store is almost a necessity in some localities, and Ramsey is one of those localities. Their peddling wagon is a great convenience to the farmers in that vicinity. The San Jacinto (Cal.) Register says that Charlie Lockwood has purchased the transfer business from S. Stokes. Charlie says he is ready to haul any- toing from a spool of thread up to a bank vault. Mr. Stokes has gone to parts unknown. Dr. Eist. Frank Dingley. Jr., II. O. Buell of Burt, Andrew Larson, Lee Clarke and several others left for Minneapolis Monday night to attend the exposition. Mr. Larson goes to the exposition in the interests of the Northwestern Dairy Association. Again we would call the special attention of the farmer readers of the REPUIHVICAN to our Agricultural Department. A careful reading of Mr. Wilson's articles in this Issue will convince anyone of the value of this department of the paper to the general public. The State' of Iowa and Mrs. Peter Johnson created' a little excitement iu Justice'Clark's- office yesterday afternoon. Mrs. Johnson was arrested at the instigation' of Mrs. Ressi'gui'e upon the charge of assault and battery. After hearing the evidence, Justice Clarke dismissed'the ease. A man who Bas been traveling m Nebraska told the REPUBLICAN the other day that northern Iowa is "the place." Crops are light in Nebraska this year and it is almost necessary for tlie-fiirm- er to label his ; fields to keep' from threshing his corn and husking his small grain by mistake. Bill Nye writes to the buld'J'maded man who asks for his advice in hair restoratives as follows: "Take your hair restorative money and by a town i'ot in a growing town that supports ite own paper and advertises, and go abend 1 and you will be fixed', and the man wfio is fixed don't care 1 whether he ha* .-my hair or not." Dr. Shore leaves for the east this week and will'be universally missed in Algona and the surrounding country. During his short residence in tlii* city the doctor has built up a magnificent practice and made the reputation of being preeminently successful in the practice of his profession. Algowa can ill afford to lose him. We are in receipt of an amuwmce- ment of a tent meeting which will be held at Silver Sake, two miles west of Ayershire. Palb Alto county, beginning Tuesday. Sept. 1«, 1890. Revs. Kobt. Carroll, N. B; Rariden and F. ~3C. Eldridge are expected to be present at the meetings. For full particulars address O. M. Thrasher, Whittemore, la. Mr. D. II.. Baker, of South Ben«l, Indiana, and Mr. L. II. Beeson, of Miles, Michigan, were in the city last Saturday and the'llKPUULiCAN is glad to acknowledge a pleasant call. Thes&gentlemen have extensive land 1 interests throughout Iowa and they say that there is no> better or more promising county iir the state than Kossuth. Bro. IPinchon has returned' from his eastern trip and is again in-the Courier office. The last issue of the Courier contains a very interesting write up of his trip east, which will be continued in this week's paper. Mr. Finn«ll had charge'of the paper during Mr. Hin- chous absence and is to be congratulated «« his success as a local editor. The> REPUBLICAN calls especial at- tentio« to its columns of county news this \feek. One of tlm best features of a country paper is its correspondence from local points. We always have room for the correspondent, and if you have been a reader of the REPUBLICAN for any length of time you will notice that we always have correspondence. TheU. D. M. said something last week about the various editors etc., of the REPUBLICAN "besieging the county with maps" during the week previous. It seems to annoy the U. D. M. The HKPUBLICAN has been offering a map of Iowa as a premium for new subscribers for over a year, and will probably continue to do so for some time to come. There was an immense crowd at the State Fab;, and the very small amount of drunkenness that prevailed on the grounds and around the city was a matter of general remark. Whisky was sold and lots of it, but had all the saloons of the old "license days" or the original package period been in full blast, the circumstances would have been far different. The school board at its Thursday evening elects Wilkinson as teacher of r take the place of Miss Fisl signed. Miss Wilkinson high recommendations and a teacher of marked eeting last Miss Ollie No. 8, to who re- very wove She be- gins her work Monday mdfntag. The Board also engaged C. W. Parker as jattltot for the coming year. Mr, A. 8. Burnell, general manager of the Inter-State Tracer,Co M Marshalltown, was in Alfona last Week and tendered the business men of the town a complimentary banquet. The banquet was held at the Butherford House Thursday evening and was well attended. The merchant needs some substantial protection from deadbeats and bad debts, and such protection is offered by the Inter-State Tracer Co. and similar institutions. We would call the attention of stock men to the notice of the sale of the Oaklawn Farm herd of Short Horn cattle at Fort Dodge,which appears elsewhere in the REPUBLICAN this week. Mr. Carpenter, the owner of the cattle, is well known, and his herd is an honest herd. A catalogue of the herd will be furnished on application to C. C. Carpenter, Fort Dodge, Iowa. The sale takes place Oct. 9th. Last week's crop report is still more encouraging. No part of the state is suffering for rain at present. The weather has been favorable for the growth of pasturage, potatoes, root crops etc. The soil is in fine condition for fall plowing and the plowing is being pushed all over the state. Corn is making good progress in spite of the rains, eight days more of good weather will place the bulk of the crop beyond danger of injury by the frost. A young man by the name of Hans Peter Sorenson arrived in Algona from the old country some time in July, and was given employment by Mr. C. L. Lund on his Wesley farm. About two weeks ago the young man was taken sick with malignant dysentery and although everything possible was done to save him, he died Tuesday, Aug. 28th and was buried in the Wesley cemetery. lie was entirely alone in America, all his relatives living in the old country. A newspaper editor that people do not talk about and sometimes abuse are rather poor concerns. The men and business that an editor sometimes feel it a duty to defend, at the risk of making enemies of another class are the first to show ingratitde. The editor who expects to receive much charity or gratitude will soon find out his mistake; but he should go right ahead in what he conscientiously believes to be right without regaro to the frowns of grumblers or the slurs of incrates.— Ex. It will pay anyone to* visit Mr. Olof Johnson's cane mill aim! evaporator north of town. The carre juice goes in at one end of the machincrandruns out at the other a very fine quality of sorghum. The apparatus used is a Bur- ouse evaporator, manufactured at Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, and' has a capacity of 50 gallons per hour: The grinding is done by steam power and' tire 1 evaporator will be kept running night and day for the next five or six weeks. Mr. Johnson is producing a 1 very fine article. Iowa co the Front- CAMP DOUGLASS, Wis.,.Sep-9;—Special:—Iowa team leads in the- prelimi- inary firing today. Tnos.-F. Gtooius. ^~<«i-«—: MMWIAL NOTES.

RAMSAY: Sept. 8.—The new flouring mill at Elmore is being rapidly constructed and e're long farmers of northern Kossuth will be accommodated for all kinds of grinding. This is something for which the farmers in the rich wheat belt of northern Kossuth have long felt the need, and will aid in the development of this new but most prosperous section. Mr. Stoddard, of Blue Earth has recently purchased the swi sec. 0 in Bam- say township. The flax crop of Jas. Stoughton, who lives on the farm owned by J..B. Swine- burne of the Humboldt Kosmos, averaged in the neighborhood of 15 bushels per acre. This at $1.25 per bushel, the present Elmore market, makes Mr. Stoughtou's crop of 80 acres a valuable one. The above .farm lies five miles southwest of Elmore. Copious rains in this vicinity makes fall plowing an easier task than earlier in the season. Come up into northern llamsay if you want to see rapid settlement and fine crops. Special Correspondence. WESLEY, Sept. 8.—Weslev has all the appearance of a boom. Ed Kunz' new front, the new bank, Mr. Studer's dwelling, the addition to the school house, and numerous other improvements, have added largely to the appearance of our little town. E. Cronan, the foreman on Lund's stock farm, has been quite sick but is now convalescing. Dr. J. M. Pride, of Whittemore, was called to visit Mr. Croti<ara last Thursday.

Our grain buyers, during a lull of business, are seen walking the streets singing, ^O for more foes to face," etc. Wesley, as usual with all things, has two as good looking grain buyers as the county can afford. And we will pit them against any in buying grain when it comes near them. Ed Run-/, returned from Chicago Saturday where ho went to pureliasu goods for his new store. C. E.
