Our offer is still open. Renwick Times: Master Bert Lang ame down from Algona Wednesday for a visit with his cousins, Artie Pack- ird and Harry Stoddard — Mrs. Walt- rs, of Algona, is visiting her sister, 'Grandma'' Robinson. Archie Hutchison expected to spend lis summer's vacation in Algona, but was summoned to Chicago by the illness of his sister who is a student in Chicago Medical College.

The Algona Cyclers will back Bert Edmonds to run a race against any man in Iowa that straddles a wheel, nnd will plank down hard money that lie can win it. They hav'nt got much they will put up all tliey have. A tramp who seemed to be a good manipulator of the jack knife visited Algona last week. The way he could take'a piece of pine and work it up into odd shaped receptacles was a caution. Why do such men tramp the country? The hard wood lumber yard has a •'Jack the Ripper" for a weather vane. The figure is armed with two corn knives which are flourished continually after the manner in which the bloody Jack is supposed to handle his weapons. The Courier has had much to say at various times about the style of logic employed by the REPUBLICAN in conducting an argument. Will the Courier please resume the thread of the clothing discussion and give us an example of what sound logic really is? Prof. J. F. Doderer, of Bancroft, passed through Algona Monday on his way home to Rockwell, where he expects to spend his summer's vacation with the exception of a few weeks that he will put in teaching in the Cerro Gordo county Normal at Mason City.

Tommy Billsborough, who has been working in the REPUBLICAN office since the first of January, has left us anc gone into the hay field. Tom is a good faithful hand and we are sorry to lose him, but when the hay field can promise more money than the printing business it generally wins. Prof. Chaffee requests us to say that all parties in town who may have rooms to rent to Normal School students 01 who may wish to take boarders sboulc communicate with him immediately The professor will assist all students to find suitable rooms and boarding places and it will be to the advantage of every one concerned if all of the available accommodations in town are known previous to the opening of the school. Quite a number of the K. P. boys went to Wesley last Wednesday night to assist in the work of instituting the new lodge over there. Following are the officers of the new lodge which wil be known as Wesley Lodge number 300 C. C., F. Heal; V.C.,H.C.Hollenbeck: P., H. A. Bancroft; M. of F.. Oeovge Hall; M. of A., M. J.

G.; Frank Parish, Secy.: H. J. Edens, Treas.-, Ed. Blackford, warden; Dr, Garfield, Conductor. The men who were at work repairing lie leaks in the stand pipe finished the- ob last Friday. The pipe is now prac- iically tight, although it still leaks slightly in several places. We won't say anything about a few little leaks if Mr. Stephens will only furnish the city a little water to leak out. DrS. Morse and Pride, assisted by Dr. Davies of Emmetsburg, performed a very dangerous but successful surgical operation upon the person of Mrs. J. L. Cotton, of Whittemore, last Wednesday. The operation consisted in the •emoval of a large cancer from the nreast. Mrs. Cotton stood the operation well and will entirely recover. Who is Van Houten? nsks the Algona Courier. Van Houten is a good straight temperance Republican, an old soldier, a farmer, an officer in the armers Alliance, and in all probabil- ty the next Lieut. Gov. of Iowa. That's who Van Houten is. You wont be asking that question a year rom now, Bro. Hinchon. Van Hou- .en will be heard from if he does'nt ;et elected, for he is a rattling good orator. Hinchon avers that the Courier is always clothed in the robe of purity. That's pretty good Hinchon, but where was that robe of purity when r ou sent the Courier forth a week or ;wo ago, a naked advertisement of the °act that you had'nt cured yourself of he habit of lying about the McKinley )ill since election time? If the Cour- er has a "robe of purity" it has been 'in the wash" or some place else for a ong time, for the Courier has'nt worn t very recently. D. B. Avey and his father-in-law,Dr. Dlark, will soon set out on a stereopti- :on show tour. Mr. Avey is compelled n defense of his own health to leave ;he harness shop for a time and he will take this method of recreation. The views which they will carry are very ine ones, including a great many scenes n the United States, views of battle ields of the civil Avar, besides scenes 'n Palestine, etc., also views of Staney's several trips into Africa. They will probably give an exhibition in Al- jjona in the near future. Master Robert Starr had an all night elebration the night before the fourth, [•le had been at Emmetsburg visiting lis cousins and came home on the night passenger Friday. His father was at ;he depot to meet him but not seeing rim in the car concluded he did not jonie but would be home the next morning. Saturday morning while the 'amily were atBreakfuft, Robert walked in, to the great surprise of all. It seems that he got on the train all right at Emmetsburg but went to sleep and was carried beyond Algona and rode ill the morning train was met when le was transferred to it and brought jack. • The old time Phenix lightning rod humbug gang are working this county under a new scheme. They take applications for loans at six per cent and insurance at three per cent, taking notes as pay. They then return the application for loan as rejected, no matter what it is, but the insurance at three per cent, that sticks. The insurance is said to be all right but the farmer pays about three times as much for it as he should. It is merely a scheme to get the insurance. Don't have anything to do with them.—Britt Tribune. Clear Lake Mirror: Arrangements are being perfected fora grand reunion of all old soldiers who wore the blue in the sixties, at Clear Lake, July 15, 16 and 17. The committee have the promise of Department Commander Davidson to be present during the entire reunion, and a feast of good things is promised all who attend. On the evenings of the 15th and 16th, camp-fires will be held in the Pavillion, and a grand lake excursion has been arranged for the afternoon of the 16th, free to all comrades. A cordial invitation is extended .to all the old boys of the northwest to come and renew old acquaintances and once more live over the old days. The Weather Crop Bulletin reports the rainfall was ample in all parts of the State, and excessive in many localities. On the afternoon of the 1st inst. a heavy storm, or series of storms, with accompaniment of wind squalls, hail, excessive rain and lightnii formed somewhere in Cherokee or O'Brien, and swept diagonally across the State to Decatur county. Reports of heavy damage wrought thereby come from stations in Buena Vista, Carroll, Audubon, Guthrie, Adair, Union, Clark and Decatur counties. Hail stones of marvelous size and great quantities, fell in strips of from two to six miles in width, along this pathway of disturbance about two hundred miles in length. The heaviest damage appears to have been done in Audubou, Adair and DeCatur counties. Within a strip five miles in width, the destruct- of all growing crops was well nigl: total, and numbers of horses were killed or ruined by being driven into wire fences. In general the crop conditions are very favorable. Haying is progressing in all parts, and the yielc is good. The harvest of winter wheat and rye has beguu in the southern counties, and in many localities the grain'is all in shock. The oat crop bids fair to be the heaviest ever grown in the State.

We take it, that the Normal school is going to be a success his year, Prof, Chaffee is a young man, but at the same time an expert- need teacher. He is pushing and mergetic, and will doubtless succeed n securing a large attendance for the all term, as he will spend the entire ummer in this vicinity soliciting iatronage for the school. Prof. Chaffee will be assisted by an ntirely new corps of teachers. The everal courses of study are to be care- ully revised. Special attention will t>e given in the Normal departments, he Professor tells us, to the 'matter of arranging for the personal needs of uch teachers as may wish to avail hemselves of a still more thorough •reparation for the teachers profession, and who can only spare a term or two or the preparation. This arrangement will probably be in line with the needs of a large number of teachers in £ossuth County. The school will of- er full Academic Normal and Business courses. The regular announcement for 189192 will be ready in a few days. Before you decide on a school end for one.

Hinchon has commenced to talk about ugar again and sets up his old hypotb- ,sis that as the tariff on sugar was a ax therefore the tariff on everything ilse is a tax and must be paid by the lonsumer q. e. d. We thought we had rim cured of that, a little while back but it seems we were mistaken as he is at it again.. We had an old yellow dog nee around the farm at home that ised to suck eggs. We tried to break him of it but never entirely succeeded. »Ve whipped him, we made him eat •otten eggs, we crammed egg shells down his throat loaded with kerosene and assafoetida but never quite cured him. He would suck eggs. After each .ucceeding punishment he would swear off for a while but as soon as the bad taste was out of his mouth and he had gotten over being sick he would be at fc again. We finally tired of our efiorts ,o reform the brute and gave him an gg loaded with dog-button which effectively cured him. So far as our experience with yellow dogs that suck eges goes nothing but death itself will cure them. THE RACES. Don't forget about the races next week, the 14th and 15th. A large num- der of good horses have been entered and if the races prove to be what they promise, they will certainly be worth attending. $1000 in purses is up. - .—.»>•< The Fourth At Hulberts Grove. Special Correspondence of REI-UBLICAJ*. ALGONA, July 7.— The celebration picnic at Hulbert's grove is reported to lave been a genuine success, the program having been carried out in full. The Declaration of Independence was read by Chas. Sarchett. The oration of the day was delivered by Fred Patterson. Toasts and patriotic recitations by Clare Salisbury, Mrs. S. A. Sarchett. Mrs. V. Bossingham and others. The races in which the small boys took part made lots of fun. Chas. Lee took first money in egg race and Herman Bossingham in sack race. - -t^ift-, - ; PRETTY GOOD SCORES.

On Amendment day attention was called to the action taken by the railroad officials in regard to temperance and their employees. The temperance movement is receiving organized support from two industrial sources, of which there seems to be but little appreciation. The freight and passenger traffic of the railroads of this country, iu the operation of which some 689,912 'persons are employed, is practically controlled by 600 corporations, and of these no less than 375 prohibit the use of intoxicating liquors by their employees. The action of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers in the same line, illustrates the helpful influence which maybe exerted by labor organizations. Mr. Arthur, the executive head of the organization, is authority for the statement that "whenever a member of the order is dissipated, we not only expel or suspend him, but notify his employers, and during the last year 375 were expelled for this cause.'' When we read in a large and influential newspaper the following item making a part of the detailed account of the late presidential trip—"In the Colorado the beautiful and .costly dining car, is a locker well filled with all kinds of liquors." The query naturally arises, who will use the liquors? If they are not safe for the firemen and brakesmen and railroad engineers, who are they safe for? This is the question which more and preparing for an answer. TEMPERANCE ESSAYS THE COUNTY FAIR. It was decided to offer school children between twelve and eighteen years of age three prizes to be given for the three best essays upon the subject, "The Best Way to be Temperate." Competent judges will be chosen to decide upon the merits of ths essays, and two or three will be chosen to read in public on the afternoon of the second day of the County. Fair. Will school officials and those interested make this notice as public as possible in their townships, and help to interest the children in making this effort toward adding to the success of the County Fair. All essays should be seat to Mrs. S. D. Hamilton, or to the Algona Reading Room. There they will receive careful attention, c. A. I. • 4*»A FORMER ALGONA LAWYER. The friends of H. S.

We clip from the Denver Sun of recent date: The jury which heard the evidence in the $5,000 damage and dog case of Louis E. Perkins against Dr. Clinton Wagner and Thomas Doulon, awarded the plaintiff with a verdict for $250 yesterday morning, The defense promptly made a motion for a new trial. This proved a great victory for both client and his counsel, II. S. Vaughn, Esq.. who tried the case for Mr. Perkins.

Ed, Republican: At the regular meeting at the Reading Room on ^Friday Mrs. Hamilton read of the new remedy for curing inebriates, which now claims so much attention. It is this: "The new treatment consists in the administration of bi-chloride of gold in solution hypodermically and through the stomach for a period of about three weeks, its effect in destroying the appetite for narcotics w said to D© imme- dia,te. In fact, it is the practice of the physician to allow the patients to drink all the pure whiskey they want while under the treatment.

W& w The Celebration At Gvovevs. A pleasant gathering of the people of the neighborhood was held at J. Grovers, in Portland township. .The exercises openad with, thirteen girls representing the original colonies. After prayer by Mr. Chipman, America was sung, and then Geo. W. Eddy read the Declaration of Independence. Mr. Eddy is a fine reader, and he put all of his spirit and power into the reading. It was never read better by. anyone. Following him came the ad-/ dress of Prof . G. F. Barslou, of Britt.' The address was a good one and well received. Hail Columbia was sung, after which Mrs. Grant Fairbanks gave a fine recitation depicting an occurrence in the Revolutionary war. The next speaker was Eugene Tellier, of Algona, who maintained his reputation as art orator. In the afternoon there were some races, etc., and some fireworks in the evening.
