Finder will confer a favor by leaving at KEPUULI- office. The auction sale notice of the Butler Bros, appears in this issue. Find it and read it. Bnrt claims to be having a boom. Among the buildings going up is a new livery stable. Mrs. J. K. Fill is very much improved and hopes are now entertained for her entire recovery. We have a special correspondent for the Normal School. Normal notes are published every week. King David took half of the first and second monev in the free for all trotting race at Forest City. Miss Annie Roouey, of Davenport, is visiting her uncle, D. McGihty, in the north end.— Iowa City Eepublican. The water works men have not yet put in an appearance, but the material for the- plant is expected every day. Jas. Taylor has just put in his fall stock of goods and invites the people who visit the fair to call and examine. Bevs. Robert Can-oil and F. N. Eldred ge, are expected present at the Baptist Associational meeting opening Oct. 14. One. of the most attractive show windows in town is that of the new store of Geo. B. Bacon. It is a pleasure to gaze into it. Mr. Kernan, of Wesley, calls flax his best crop this year. He has a number of acres and the yield will average ten bushels per acre. Mrs. Leonard Holm arrived home Sunday morning from Monroe, Wisconsin, where she was called to attend the funeral of her sister. A handsome boy baby has made its appearance at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Paul Dorweiller, and the parents are correspondingly happy. The Courier imagines itself a modern Rienzi talking to a crowd of American slaves. Did you read that address to Republican farmers in its last issue? D. A. Haggard goes today to Humboldt county, where lie has big: stock sales Thursday and Friday. He will entirely miss our great agricultural exhibition. Mr. and Mrs. P. Slagle, J. C. Blackford^and several others went to Spencer Sunday morning on the early train, to attend the Sunday sessions of conference. It is reported that nine carloads of cattle were shipped from Bancroft last night. They were bought by Illinois men and taken down into central Illinois to fatten. A. Hough started for Chicago Saturday night with six cars of hogs. Out of the lot were 208 that turned their owner, C. L. Lund, $2,514. They weighed 62,900 pounds. The Pension Examining Board has will meet every Wednesday evening. Gardner Cowles is a member of the commission from this district to exam- into the condition, claims, etc. of the University of the Northwest and report at the next session of the Conference. We would request the Courier and Upper Des Moines to publish our binding twine editorial in full—it isn't very long—if they wish to refer to it again. We dislike to have ourselves misrepresented. Leo Peu<cuet returned from his eastern trip Monday night and reports a good time. He visited at his old home at Cape Vincent, New York, and at Buffalo, Rochester, Detroit, Jaiiesville Wis., and other points. Next Sunday evening the Baptist pas tor will speak on "Environments or Formative Influences." This will be the second In a series of sermons to young people. A gettetal Invitation Is extended, Jno. GoederS will take possession of his new quarters next week. New goods are arriving dally and Mr. Goed* ers will have as fine and as largo a stock of goods as one can find In the northwest. Mr. Brooks and daughter Mrs. Fannie Grant, of Boone, Iowa, sister and niece of Mr. II. B. Matson, have been visiting in the family of Mr. Matson for the past week. They returned to their home to-day. We have been asked a number of times if our Agricultural Department Is a "patent inside," or If it "comes in plates." Neither. Every word of Mr. Wilson's articles is set up In the REPUBLICAN office. Mrs. Geo. R. Woodworth and son George left yesterday for St. Louis, where George is to enter the manual training department of Washington University. Mrs. Woodworth will spend the winter there. Our package man, Coonan, still continues to infest the town. Algona will be as glad to see him pull out as Emmetsburg was to get rid of him. The Democrats will probably try to keep him util after election. Don't forget the ladies of the W. R. C. at the fair grounds. Turn over to the back of this paper and read what "Tama Jim" says about the victuall- ing of the people at the county fair by the ladies of some society. Mr. C. C. Chubb, chairman of the Republican county central committee has issued a call for the Republican county convention. The notice appears elsewhere in this issue. The Democrats are now at liberty to call their convention. The ladies of the Monday Club served an elegant lunch at Miss Dodd's residence Monday night in honor of Mrs. Woodworth, who was to depart for St. Louis the following morning. Mrs. Woodworth was one of the organizers of the club. The Chicago & North-Western railway will sell tickets to the Corn Palace and return for $4.90. It will pay all who can spare the time to visit the corn palace tin's year, as it presents unusual attractions. The Northwestern is a good route to take. It is unnecessary to call attention to Frank Bros, half page ad in this issue, for you have seen it and read it before this local caught your eye. There is no better stock of clothing in northern Iowa, and you can do no better anywhere in the matter of prices. Mrs. Beale at last has undisputed possession of her boy, much to the gratification of every one. Popular sympathy has been with her all the time. Mr. Beale sold all his interest in the boy for $150, and signed papers which will prevent him causing any more trouble. G. A. Healey, of Burt, was a caller at this office Saturday. Mr. Healey owns a quarter section of land and it is all fenced in. He is of the opinion that the advantage gained by having his farm cut up into fields so as to pasture wherever the feed is best, rotate crops and pasture, etc., will soon pay for the fence. Bishop Perry, of Davenport, Dean Cornell and Rev. E. II. Gayuor, of Sioux City, Rev. W. II. Sparling, of Mason City, Rev. F. W. Way, of Cherokee, and Rev. L. P. McDonald.ot'Em- metsburg. are the clergymen in attendance at the Convocation. Others who expected to be here were' prevented by sickness. The announcement of'M. F. Randall for Recorder appears iw this issue. Mr. Randall is well known m the county, having been a resident here for fourteen years and engaged during that time in the Algomi Flour mill's. He is a man well qualified for the office and will doubtless come before the convention with a good delegation. The latest additions-to E'. II. Slagle's valuable collection of autographs, is a letter from Robert Coll'yer, the great New York divine. It was contributed by Dr. L. A. Sheetz, wHo received the same from the writer. Another recent and valuable addition a'lso is an autograph copy of the song "Darling I am Gro\ying Old," by its author Eben E. Rexford'. C. C. Hall, who has spent the season herding cattle in the north part of the county, is once more a resident of Algona. He had over 300'head for Barney Devine. The cattle have been driven home where they will find better pasturage, Mr. Devine having a lot of late feed. The cattle have done well during the summer and are in' fine shape for fall feeding. The Fair opens today and closes Friday. Prospects are for the best Pair in the histoay of the society. The exhibit of fine stock promises to be unusually good, and all other exhibits will be much better than any year heretofore. We hope'to see a large number of the farmers of'the comity present this year and assure them that; the exhibit will be worth seeing. Races every day. Prudence Chapter, No. 70, elected officers Monday night, as follows: High Priest, J. R. Jones; King, D. A. Buell; Scribe, Dr. Jas. Barr; Secretary, Wm. Nycunr; Treasurer, J. W. Wiwlsworth; Captain of the llost, F. M. Taylor; Principal Sojourner, O. E. Palmer; Royal Arch Captain, C*. II. Blosst*n; First Vail, Dr. W. K. II. Morse; Second Vail P. L. Slagle; Tylei'i Gr. II. Laaipson. Noble's Draroatic Company ia in town and ministering to the wants of the play-loving people. It is one of the best companies that has visited Algona ior some time and ought to have a good house every evening, at its popular prices. The company travels in a special car and leayes nothing with the hotels of the country. They have a tirst class orchestra which turus out music alone worth the price of admission. Dr. W. E. II. Morse, who assumes Dr. Shore's practice, arrived iu Algona last Wednesday, and can be found in Dr. Shore's old office ready to attend to professional calls. Dr. Morse needs no introduction to the citizens of Algona t or the surrounding country, as he was formerly located in Bancroft and is known professionally throughout the county. Ho has of late been engaged In practice in Nebta&ka but comes back to Iowa to locate permanently at Algo- The Docto* has a great many na. friends in this vicinity wfio. are more than glad to see him return to Kossuth county. Rev, Smith, pastor of the Baptist church, has begun a second series of Sunday evening sermons to the yoitna people. Rev. Smith gives his subject careful and deep study and will prove an Interesting sneaker. An invitation Is extended to all to come and hear the topics discussed. Following are the subjects: Sept. 528, Environment, or Formative Influences. Oct. 5, Uses of Inheritance. Oct. 12, What is Training? Oct. 19, Education and Law. Oct. 20, Skill vs. Blunders. Nov. 2, Hidden Reef-rocks. Nov. 9, Test of Truth. Mayor Jones is getting a reputation throughout the nation as a very tyrannical sort of a man. It Is astonishing how a little thing grows to enormous and outlandish proportions when it gets started the rounds of the press. Exchanges will please copy. The story of the baby carriage ordinance has no foundation of fact, but started with some smart aleck of an editor who interpreted the notlce,which applied only to bicycles, tricycles,, velocipedes etc., to mean all manner of wheeled vehicles and hence, baby carriages. Mayor Jones would be the last man in the city to countenance such an imposition upon the babies of Algona. Almost every day we hear about our farm department from the farmer readers of the REPUMJOAN. The department is universally appreciated. This is made only the more evident from the fact that other papers that were not so fortunate as to receive an offer of Mr. Wilson's services are saying what they can against the department. Mr. Wilson's ability as an agricultural writer is universally recognized and we find his articles quite extensively quoted. The Monthly Review of the Iowa weather and crop service comments favorably upon Mr. Wilson's agricultural papers and quotes one of those "syndicate articles" referred to by the UJ);M. The average temperature of the state during the past week was 25 degrees below normal. The rain storm of the 18th was general, and was accompanied by local wind squalls of more or less severity. A storm approaching a tor- nada was reported on that date in the vicinity of Manning. Last week was favorable for maturing crops. Reports concerning the damage by the frost of the 13th vary considerably, but the crop bulletin estimates that the loss of corn from the frost will not exceed 5 per cent, of the total product of the state. We will have 75 per cent, of a crop of sound, merchantable com. The potato crop will be exceedingly light, and potatoes will be a good price. Fall plowing is reported as progressing rapidly. We met Chaplain Lozier on the train the other evening and enjoyed a good talk with our lively old friend. The Chaplain's latest production!, "The Vsteran's Last Song," is the most pop- ills* piece that he 5ias ever written,'ami he is compelled to sing it until he ia hoarse wherever he goes. Mr. Lozier wa»on his way to central Illinois where he is engaged to be present at several reunions. From these he makes » tour downv through Indiana, back through Illinois, across Missouri into Kansas and Nebraska and up through Iowa again, speaking at some fifteen different places. Chaplain ILoxier is becoming moiie popular with "the boys" every year, and- it is more tflian an inspiration to hear, him talk. The NeHhwest Convocation of the- Episcopal 1 church of the Diocese of Iowa, is in sessibivat this place; Tuesday art! 10:80 a. mi, the ordinatioit>services, admitting My.; Bowen to the Dioconate- took place, followed by a sermon by Bishop Perry. At 4 >p. rm, confirmation services-were held, and'in the evening there was a sermon by Rev. E. II. Gay nor,'..of Sioux City, followed by an address by Rev. Cornell, Dean of the Convocation; The laying of the corner stone of the new clierch takes place this afternoon at S;p. m., and a> missionary meeting will be held at 7:30'p. m., this evening when*a paper will be read on the subject, "The Mission, of the Church,,'by Rev. W. II. Sparling, of Mason City. This will be followed by a discussion of the subject. All are invited to attend the missionary meeting this evening.

Black was appointed pre- aiding elder of this district, and Will move to Algona, while Elder Pratt has been transferred to the Sioux City District. A new district to be known as the Ida Grove district was created with Rev. R. Smylie, as presiding elder, The question as to the adoption by the conference of the University of the Northwest was temporarily compromised by the appointment of an investigating committee to report at the next session of the conference. The new University is opposed on strong grounds by Methodists outside of the Northwest Iowa Conference, and it is to be hoped for the sake of the educational interests of the church in Iowa,that the conference will eventually refuse to father the institution. Bishop Fowler who presided at the conference, was unwell part of the time and disappointed a, great number of people by his inability to preach Sunday morning. Dr. Ridge- away, of Garrett Biblical Institute, filled his place and preached an able and powerful sermon. Rev. Whitfleld's return to Algona is highly satisfactory to the church here, and a very successful year is expected. The next conference will be held at Ft. Dodge. ALGONA DISTRICT. W. A.

THE COUNTY NEWS. WESLEY. Special Correspondence. WKSI.KY, Sept. 22.—The pleasant autumn weather is now with us, giving the husbandman good opportunity to gather in his crops and dispose of them at good prices. Improvements iu town are noticeable. Mr. Ash, Sr., has erected a new barn on his town lots, also J. M. WUcpx has improved his place by erecting a cona- wodious barn for use. The new sidewalk put j 0 by Ed,. Kuna aad crossings put down by road supervisor Smith add to the goodly appearance of out town; and apt least o! all, F, M, Butts finished the west lower store of his building and moved his goods and general mer* chandise therein, He says he is moving from the outskirts into the business part of town, where he can be found occasionally. James James and the old gentlemen, father-in-law of Dr. Hill are his salesmen and clerks. Guy M. Butts Is off to Chicago on a business and pleasure trip. Mr. Richard Anderson, capitalist of Davenport, was in town last week and took several trips in the country, looking over the fine prairie lands with the view of investing in the near future. J. O'Connell,U. S. District Attorney, of Ft. Dodge, in company of Mr. Thomas, was in town and purchased a half section of land a short distance out, through the Bank of Wesley. Way, Barrett & Co. are rustlers, having made several deals in real estate to parties who contemplate erecting substantial buildings thereon. Land seekers while in town would do well to call and see Mr. Barrett at the bank, and look over some fine lands they have for sale or trade cheap. Mr. Stephens, of Iowa Falls, in company with Mr. Way, was in town Saturday. A couple of Mr. A. H. Young's brothers are here visiting and doing business. We understand they made sale of a half section of land to Gray Bros, one day last week for cash. Several parties in town looking up real estate with the intention of locating in Kossuth county. We notice Mr. Shields, Mrs.Lawson's father is staying with her and keeps himself busy repairing as usual around the premises. Mrs. L. B. Potts, formerly of Wesley, and now resident of Emmetsburg, is visiting in Wesley this week. If any parties have news that they would like to have published, would hand the same to ye reporter on Monday, weekly, or drop it in P. O. box 81, it would be cheerfully received and attended to. Mrs. J. R. Pollard, G. V. T., of I. O. G. T. of the state of Maine, arrived in Wesley Saturday afternoon and delivered an able temperance address to an attentive audience Saturday evening; also Sunday morning, urging all to temperance and sobriety. Wake up and do something to drive intemperance from the land. The evening discourse was directed to the moderate drinker. It was noticed some time since that C. E. Olson, of the firm of Lawson & Olson Bros,, was off to Chicago. He returned last week. While there he made some large purchases. You can seethe largest stock oj dry goods and general merchandise ever showed up in Wesley, at tlwir old staintl, with a full new outfit of millinery goods just arrived.
