J)OLLIYER IN ALGONA iifif-- -^- - - - HON,J.P. DOLLIVER /111 cHscifts the issues of the campaign ' at CWirt House Hall, Algona, today, October 23, flt 7:80 J M. All are invited. The Baptist Association. Ifo the Editor: Beginnings are proverbially small. But no one of the del- egaltes or visitors at the Baptist association meeting of last week could be persuaded that it was small. Upwards of a dozen ministers and at least sixty delegates and visitors gathered from a small scope of country, and, full of enthusiasm and hope, made the meeting * notable one. local Baptist association may ba large or small, to suit the convenience and wishes of the churches. In this case the organization of the new body was made advisable by the doubling of the membership in about three, years. The Upper Des Moines association in its recent meeting at Ilumboldt took the steps necessary for setting off a portion of its territory for the new body. Four counties join Kossuth on the sides and two at the corners. These constitute the new associational territory. Yet from Winnebago no delegate came to the meeting. The meeting opened on Tuesday evening, the 14th, and continued with unabated interest till the following Thursday evening. The introductory sermon by Rev. J. Schutz, of Ilumboldt, was a practic.- al plea for truly spiritual work and worship, founded on the words, "God is a spirit," and was well stated. The sermons by Revs. II. Tlumley, of Goldfield, L. A. Cummins, of Bancroft, and A. Whitnan, delivered on Wednesday afternoon and evening, and Thursday evening respectively, swelled the vol- ,me of instruction anel devotion. The Sunday School address by Rev. N. Bldredge, of Vinton, was a mas- ;erly and eloquent presentation of facts ,nd persuasions to work for the chil- !ren. District missionary, Robert Car- [ oll, gave a telling address on state fissions ,and took collection and pledges^ amounting to $26.50. This, however, was only a part of the $125 or more raised, in this associational district for district missions alone. So successful has Bro. Carroll become in his missionary work that over 100 invitations to hold meetings in Northwestern Iowa, await hij_decisiou_^.nd,9BP-Qrtunjty. The discussion most interesting to the writer was opened by Jiiin<on our educational interests, and followecTby both brethren and sisters with such deep interest that the dinner hour was for the time forgotten. When the call was made nearly $200 were pledged for >es Moines college, which fund receiv- ^another $50 or more from pledges re- itly made. The great Chicago uni- •ersity movement with its nearly three lion endowment was referred to and ihe claim was made that the grade of the Des Moines college is the highest of any in the state, no other requiring so much Latin, Greek, French, German and mathematics to enter the Freshman class. An educational revival most thorough and general has struck us. Pastor Thrasher, of Whittemore, ably led in a discussion of young people's societies and was enthusiastically followed by others. Later this discussion was crystal ixed into a young people's associational society, formed of several local societies, with Pastor Thrasher as moderator, and Miss Clara Burroughs of Algona as clerk. The society also appointed delegates to represent it at the state meeting at Red Oak next Friday, the 24th, and among these was Sidney Rist, of this city. The Women's meeting on Thursday afternoon created a deep interest and fostered a desire that much might be done in the home work for foreign missions. Mrs. Whitman and Mrs. Schutz gave addresses. Mrs. F. M. Smith read an encouraging letter from Mrs. Camptell, state secretary for foreign mission circles, and Mrs. Brooks also assisted, address of Pastor "Wilcox, of ick, on "Giving," will bear fruit lives of the hearers. Others part and strong words were utter- in favor of God's tenth for use in a istinctly Christian way. The spirit of the meeting may be characterized as hopeful and enthusiastic, friendly and kindly, with an utter absence of any striving after position, but with a preferring of one another in honor. The meeting was larger and better than .was anticipated in the smajlness of the territory, and m.any old workers were strong in its praises. From the visitors come well- merited words of praise to the people of Blgona for the entertainment in tneir homes ann at the Grange hall, and for their unwearied dilligence therein. I thank you, Mr. Editor, for the privilege of giving these words from an inside standpoint. F. M. S. here with the intention and purpose to invest in city and outside property. He desired for himself a home in town and for his son a farm near by. He was in town over Sunday and thus became a witness to the brutal orgies and disgraceful and riotous conduct of some of our transient population. This so impressed him that, remarking to the proprietor of the hotel that he did not wish to surround his boy with such associations, packed his grip and returned home. How longl O, how long, shall these things be allowed to continue unchecked and our town compromised in its good name and reputation by those in no wise interested in its progress and welfare.

Morse came up from Algona on Thursday last to visit her sister and many friends. Rev. Williams is off to Burlington this week to attend the Presbyterian Synod. He goes from there to visit some relatives in Wisconsin. Last week as Oscar Carpenter was being hauled up out of a well on Edward McElwain's farm in Burt township, the ropo broke and he fell a distance of about thirty feet to the bottom. The same rope was used only a few days before in hauling Henry Smith up on top of a bucket of stone and was thought to be perfectly safe. Oscar was not hurt so but what he could resume work next morning. The Lutheran church has been repaired since the damage by lightning and the insurance company will probably have the cost t paid by the time this paper reaches its readers. COB/WITH.

Mr. M. thinks a great deal of his beautiful pet, and will keep it as one of the many queer freaks of nature. ner nomination of a candidate for the office of recorder, and M. F. Randall, was nominated on the fifth ballot, receiving 88 votes. W. B. Quarton was nominated for county attorney on the fourth ballot, receiving 39£ votes, the half vote coming from Cresco. Mr. Daniels, of Bancroft, got the floor as soon as nominations for supervisor were in order and made a speech which resulted in the renomination of G. II. Peters, of Ramsay, by acclamation. Mr. Daniels is the right kind of a Republican. He is a new man in Kossuth county, and we are glad to know that he is one of the faithful. A number of names were fwrther proposed for supervisor but the convention finally nominated Grant Beaschot- er, of Plum Creek township, and adjourned. The convention was. attended by seventy-four delegates, the full number specified in the call. Every township, ward and precinct was rep 1 resented. 'In its personel the convention was one of the finest ever held in Kossuth, and it is gratifying that at this large representative gathering of Republican hosts there Was every sign of good feeling. There were no contesting delegations, a fact attesting that the primaries had been conducted fairly. The convention, it was plain to be seen, was not controlled by any combination nor by any faction. The ntmiimitioiis were 'made without the lengthy contests and dead-locks which have been a sign and a provocation of bitter feeling in some conventions.

Rheumatism is a blood disease aud to be cured rauat be treated constitutionally with this the only sure remedy on t&s market. For sale only by Dr. "" will have a fairer convention. The ticket nominated is a strong one, and one which should command the full party vote. Mr. Branson's nomination has all along been conceded. He has filled the office of clerk, for which he was nominated, since the January meeting of the supervisors and has filled it very satisfactorily. To the public Mr. Brunson made no canvass for the nomination which came to him, as did the appointment by the board in the first instance, without solicitation. His integrity and ample qualifications are recognized by all, and there ought to be no diversion in the republican ranks in his support. Mr. Randall, the candidate for recorder, is a man of the highest qualifications and the highest personal worth. He is very strong in his conviction as a Republiban and a consistent and hearty supporter of Republican principles and candidates. He is a miller and a good one. He is a fine penman and will do the work of the office in excellent shape. Mr. Quarton, the candidate for county attorney, is recognized as an attorney of ability and experience. He is a man of untiring energy and in his record as an attorney he has well exemplified the "get there" spirit. He has been constantly employed in the courts of record in the most important cases, and if the county has an important case he will need no introduction to the court. The candidates for supervisors, Mr. Peters and Mr. Benschoter, are good men who will fill the important position with acceptance and credit. Mr. Peters is the present chairman of the board. H»>-« „ ,—. The Democratic Couveutioiu The Democrats met in convention at the court house yesterday afternoon and nominated a candidate for the office of clerk of district court, for recorder and two candidates for the office of county supervisor.
