Davidson, of Algona, delivered a very forcible and eloquent address on Thursday evening followed by Mrs. Hinman, state president. A pleasant feature of the evening was the excellent music rendered by the choir. Suitable resolutions wef e adopted by the convention. One asking for municipal Suffrage for women, will come before the next legislature. Perfect harmony prevailed and the general verdict Was, a pleasant and profitable meeting. frmn mtfc A BIG BAIN STORM. . The storm of last Wednesday evening was one of the hardest that ever struck this part of the country. The weather had been threatening all day, and gatherings of dark clouds betokened a coming storm. Along about five o'clock the storm came in earnest. Jt came from the north and for upwards of half an hour the rain fell m Winding sheets. The storm had but tairly passed over, when it turned around and came back from the south. It was a common remark that no one Had ever seen it rain harder. Everything was flooded, and in many places sidewalks were floating or buried out erf sight. The river was fairly out of i its banks the next morning. Dr. Ban- reports the fall of rain at 4.7 inches. •The play of the lightning was sharp and continuous, and the roar of the thunder deafening. Ed Simpkins, of Union township, had two horses and two cows killed. A cow is also reported killed near the Milwaukee depot. Washouts along the smaller grades are reported, but nothing very serious. Th« storm was quite general and v*rr ser«re west of here, but as far east as Clear Lake there was only * good shower. The passenger train from tne west was about an hour late that evening, the track being examined by the section men all along ahead of the train. THE BLACKFORD HILL. ^ The board of supervisors were in session Monday and Tuesday pursuant to p^ar^adjournment of the June meeting. * 11 report of the proceedings will be published next week. The Blackford hill matter came up |for final disposal and the friends of the J new road scheme represented by Wm. Cleary, Harvey Ingham, E. H. Cla.ko and others made a hard fight. J. E. Blackford presented a remonstrance to the board signed by 240 names. After hearing all arguments pro and con the board decided to let the road remain where it is, but to lower the grade at least five feet according to the plans and survey of C. B. Hutchins, and gravel tlie hill, the city of Algeria to furnish the gravel. D. A. Buell was appointed a committee to oversee the work. .- •-»-««+-« . FOR A Y. M. C. A. The matter of organizing a, Young Jen's Christian Association was suggested by the REPUHLICAN awhile back ^ nd we are glad to find out that the Kflaa of organizing an association is going abroad among the business men of jbhe city and meeting with geaeral favor. Why not have an association? That (such an organization would be produc- 'ive of no little good is apparent. We i told that ample rooms for the ac- ommodation of the association will be forth coming if one is organized. The PUBLICAN is heartily in sympathy 1th and will give its support to the Y. I. C.

TJ. on June 27, the ninth anniversary of the vote on the adoption of the Constitutional Prohibitory Amendment a large attendance was present, and the session was earnest and enthusiastic. Mrs. Mary Carter, the first Pros, of the union, presided. Mrs. Rev. Smith read a scripture lesson, followed by singing and prayer. A letter from Mrs. M. C. Bailey, resigning the presidency of the Union on account of ill health, was read by the Secretary. The resignation was accepted. On motion Mrs. Hamilton was elected to fill vacancy. There being a vacancy in the office of Secretary, Mrs. C. A. Ingham was elected thereto. After discussion, a committee consisting of Mrs. Ingham and Mrs. Garfield, were appointed to wafer with officers of Pair Association in regard to offering prizes to school children for temperance essays—the b^K essay to be read at the Pair.

Premature fermentative and leaching destroy the values of solid manures and with most t armors no effort at all is made to save tho urine of tie animals. Urine is immediately available for plant use, while solid manures must decompose first Heavy rains wash away nitrogen and as manures become assimilable there Is -danger between growing periods of this loss. The urine isready to do H« work at once and be mostly utilized in one season. Hence the necessity of saving R and using it. It pays tho farmer to save his own home-gtown seed* unless h/j wuots a cluuife. E«u»t«*p seeds are eajfgwaive; and the beet of ijiem ate foul Clover seed pays unless the pasture is wanted. Many farmers hWe ndt got into th« habit of saving clovw «*od.
