The S. of V. camp at this place numbers 27 in good standing. Dr. Hist has invested his money in a bicycle of the pussy tire variety. Lee Clarke is working for the time being for Townsend & Langdon. License to marry has been issued to Geo. Van Felt and May M. Lyon. Kev. II. B. Butler-is away on a visit to his old home in New Hampshire. Mrs. D. A. Haggard and two daughters are visiting at Red Wing, Minn. F. (V Field who was visiting his friends in Algona last week, returned on Thursday to Storm Lake where he is located in the Jewel* ry business. A large number of people came in from Bancroft, Burt, and the other towns in the County to witness the races. We wont commence to enumerate the names. The instructors engaged for the coming Institute have all won laurels for themselves wherever they have taught, and this of itself insures a successful two weeks work. Mrs. C. S. Westover and two daughters, of Milwaukee, have been visiting the past week or so with the family of L. M. B. Smith. They left on Monday for Pierre, South Dakota. The Boys of Company F will leave for the encampment next Monday. Capt. Cooke will go down Friday or Saturday with a picked squad of men to enter a competitive drill. Mr. and Mrs. Will Brunson left on the noon train last Thursday, for Des Moines and other points. Mrs. Brunson will be gone some time, but Will expects to be home this week. Dr. Me Cormack, of Burt, came down on a rail road bicycle yesterday. There is no reason why Dr. Me Cormack shouldn't ride a bicycle as well as Dr. Garfleld or any one else. Fred Rogers, while pressing hay for J. B. Jain, in Portland township Monday, had both feet very badly crushed in the hay press. We understand, however, that no bones were broken. The Fort Dodge Messenger refers to our recent standing offer to the merchants of Algona for proof that the Courier told the truth, and calls it a complete answer to Democratic bluster. A man with a patent potato peeler was doing the town yesterday. The way he could take the hide from a potato, gouge out the eyes and slice it up into Saratoga chips was quite astonishing. Miss Agnes Randall, of Mt. Vernon, a graduate of the Cornell Conservatory in both vocal and instrumental music, has been engaged by Prof. Chaffee as instructor in music in the Normal School. A baby rack and strength testing machine man has pitched his tent on State street next to the court house square. Such institutions ought to be made to contribute heavily to the city treasury. In his address of welcome to the editors at Fort Dodge Mr. Dolliver took occasion to say a good word about thoroughly examined by the audience at the close of the lecture. Frank Nicoulin would like to see the advance agent of the Abbie Carrington Opera company about $10 worth. The fellow was nere several weeks ago and claimed to be out of money and thete were probably grounds for the claim. Frank generously loaned him ten dollars to enable him to reach Sioux Falls, when he was to return the money. He has not yet reached Sioux Falls. Advocate. Cumberland', Wis: The Algona (la.) Courier (Dem.) stated the other day that it now costs $100 more to clothe a family of six children for one year by reason of the McKinley bill than it would otherwise. Now the REPUBLICAN of that city offers $600 worth of advertising to any merchant of Algona that will prove the Courier's statement to be true. The offer is a standing one, but it doesn't receive any takers. Elmer Slagle was in the wreck at Perry but got off with out a bruise or a scratch. The Engineer was killed outright but no one else was injured. Elmer's trainwas standing on the crossing and was run into by a freight train on the Milwaukee road. The mail car was thrown from the track and overturned and the engine was ditched. The Engineer of the Milwaukee train claimed that the brakes in some way refused to work and thai he was unable to stop his train. E. Wright was a caller at this office Saturday, and enrolled his name on our subscription book. Mr. Wright is the man who bought the Joslynfarm. Having some blooded colts that he wished to break for driving, he went to work and laid out a race track on his farm for that purpose. He says that with little work the track can be made as good as the best. It is a sandy soil underlaid by gravel, and in two hours after an ordinary rain it is almost dry. His farm is only two miles south of town. Iowa. "Iowa," said Mr. Dolliver, "is the best country in the world, and the people of Iowa are 'in it'." We acknowledge the receipt of a complimentary ticket to the sixth annual Minneapolis Exposition, which will open the 26th of August, and It prom- Through the medium of a handsome folder just received, we learn that the Minneapolis Exposition reopens its doors this season on August 26th, and continues one month. The folder contains a long list of attractions, from * yerusal of which we are satisfied that the Exposition of 1861 will be superior to that of any other season. The list includes such sterling features as the Mexican Band that created such a furore at the New Orleans Exposition in 1885, a genuine Japanese village, the Sanford Girls Orchestra, a display of weapons, many of them relics of the civil war, etc. An exchange gives the following method of making fire extinguishers, which should be in every house: "Take twenty pounds of common salt and ten pounds of sal ammoniac (muriate of ammonia, to be bought at any drug store) and dissolve in seven gallons of water. Then put it in thin pint or quart bottles place one or more bottles in each room in the house and you will have the so-called fire extinguisher sold two Vottgha get on » Toot In the| Third Ward ItMtSunttay, and ft* Themselves tot a, Good Xiong Term in the Pen.

Sunday evening developed somethinft of a sensation and landed two of the worst characters in Algona, Mike Hubbard and Herman Rantzow, in the county jail with a dead certainity of the penitentiary before them. They were brought before Esquire Taylor Monday morning and the preliminary examination was deferred until the 28th of this month and bail fixed in each case at $2,000. In default of bail the two men were commited to jail to await the preliminary examination. Until the evidence is taken at the preliminary examination tha exact facts relative to the days doings will probably not be obtainable. As near as our reporter could get at the facts the story is as follows: Hubbard and Rantzow, with several other men of kindred spirit, spent Sunday afternoon at Nick Hubbard's place in the 3rd ward, drinking, carousing and raising his satanic majesty generally. The natural spirit of meanness and quarrelsomeness which both men have to a large degree was aggravated by a good large cargo of the stuff that the Democratic party is anxious to license the sale of, which they managed to get aboard during the afternoon. They were anxious for a fight with somebody. The first victim to fall into their hands was an old man by the name of Cook. After getting the old man drunk they amused themselves by beating and pounding him almost into a state of insensibility. Finishing with the old man they started out for a "stroll" and met Seymour ESI'.A.T'E For information in regard to lauds in Northwestern Iowa, write to tlie Real Estate and Abstract Office of GEO. C.

Tuttle writes from Oklahoma that he arrived there without serious catastrophe. There is talk of holding the Senatorial convention at Emmetsburg, about Aug. 7th. Frank Nicoulin went to Blue Earth Saturday, where his buggy selling camp is at present located. A meeting of the Normal School Association is called for next Tuesday evening. See notice elsewhere. About 30 Algona people took in the Forepaugh circus at Mason City, last week. They report a good show. Prof. Chaffee has been enjoying a visit from his father who is a Methodist minister located at Dysart, in Tama county. Our offer to the business men of Algona for proof that the Courier told the truth is still open—wide open without any takers. About a dozen people will attend the quarterly meeting of the Northern Iowa Baptist association at Bancroft this week. Mrs. Elizabeth Brown, of Taylor county, is spending the summer with her grand daughters, Miss Bamsey and Mrs. Gibson. There was another scrap in which a citizen of Algona his hired man and a couple of black eyes figured pretty prominently. Frank Marble, of Hampton, was a caller at the RBPUBLICAH office yesterday on his way home from a visit to his brother, at Burt. Rev. T. DeWitt Talmage, is to lecture at the Spirit Lake Auditorium on Friday July 24th under the auspices of the M. E. church. Misses Oornie and Anna Ingham were among the lady visitors to Fort Dodge at the time of the Editorial Association meeting last week. Frank Kernan, of Wesley, was in town Saturday and before he left traded his old buggy off for a new one of Bradley & Nicoulin. The Democratic party is in favor of licensing the sale of the stuff that caused the cutting affair on the railroad track Sunday night. Ft. Dodge Messenger. Miss Edith Bowyer, of Algona, arrived Friday to make a vacation visit with her cousins Aileen and Mildred Marquette. Guy Tuttle has secured a position as stenographer and private secretary for Superintendent Hill, of the State Asylum at Independence.

Sweet of Bancroft came down to Algona last week for the purpose of of appeariig before the board of pension examiners. Mr. Sweet draws a meagre pension but is entitled to more and we hope that he will succeed in getting an increase. The Democratic minority in the 3d ward has probably been reduced at least two more by the cutting affair of Sunday night. If the men don't go over the road for that evening's work it will be a very conspicuous case where justice has miscarried. If there is one man above all others who is known by his advertisement, that man is W. L. Douglas, the great shoe manufacturer. A new advertisement from him appears in this issue, and when you want a pair of his shoes you can find it at Stough's. List of letters remaining uncalled for at post office week ending- July 12,1881.

The 1891-92 announcement of the Northern Iowa Normal Sclwol is being printed at this office and will be ready for mailing in a few days. All interested in knowing what the school is to be during the following year should write Prof. Chaffee for a, copy of the announcement. We can conscientiously recommend Mr. D. B. Avey's lecture and stereopticon entertainment. He has a large number of very fine American views and a first class stereopticon. Mr. Ayey gave an exhibition at the Methodist church Monday evening. It was well worth attending. Miss Grace Adams, of West Liberty, Iowa, has accepted the position of Assistant Principal of the Normal School. Miss Adams is a graduate of Cornell and has the reputation of being an experienced and successful teacher. Prof. Chaffee is very fortunate in having secured a competent assistant. Miss Jennie Bailey reports that the Baptist young people's convention, which she attended last week at Chicago was a success in every way. Although the convention was the first of its kind and was called for purposes of organization there were about 3,000 delegates present from various states and territories to form a national organization. We recently saw a copy of the Worker's Bulletin in which was some correspondence from Lincoln, Nebr., referring to Eugene Archibald and giving him a fine recommendation as a carpenter and builder. Mr. Archibald is now married and lives at Council Bluffs. Those who were familiar with his record in Algona will be pleased to learn of his present success. in the market at high figures, but costing you very little. In case of fire throw one or two bottles into the burning place with sufficient force to break the bottle and the fire will be quickly extinguished." We are indebted to D. II. Hutchins for a clipping from a California paper which we publish on the editorial page this week. The people of California have an interest in the development of the rich tin mines that exist there and what is directly of interest to the people of California is indirectly to the interest of the people of the entire country. A little tariff on tin plate to build a few tin plate mills and make it an object to mine our tin is a good thing •for everybody. The article furnished by Mr. Hutchins will be especially interesting to all honest Democrats who deny that any tin mines exist in the United States. Sioux City is a great plaofc The people over there understand pretty thoroughly the theory of advertising which accounts to a great extent for the phenomenal boom that the city has been experiencing. Last year the city outdid itself in the matter of corn palaces. It was advertised to be the last and most elaborate of all the corn palaces and thousands of people took advantage of the supposed last opportunity of seeing a Corn Palace. But Sioux City has not gone out of the corn palace business. This year there is to be a corn palace and it is to be twice as elaborate as any of its predecessors. It will occupy the greater part of two entire blocks on opposite sides of the street. A monster arch will span the street surmounted by a towering dome. The palace has been wonderful before but it promises to be a marvel this year. Friday's Weather Crop Bulletin reports that the daily average temperature of past week was about 8 degrees below normal throughout the larger part of the State. Davenport is the only station reporting an excess. It was the coolest July week recorded in the past twenty years. The low temperature was very favorable to small grain, checking the tendency to rust blight, which had already caused much damage in many localities. The rainfall has been excessive in the larger part of the state, especially in the east central and northeast districts. This with the previous saturation of the soil has been unfavorable to most crops; and a very considerable amount of hay lias been damaged after cutting.Winter wheat and rye are in shock in southern districts and the quality is good. Haying is in progress in all sections, with promise of a full average yield. Oats rank in growth, and the yield will be reduced considerably by rust and lodging. Corn has made a vigorous struggle for existence, and with favoring weather in the future may yet recover a good portion of its lost estate. »~4*»~. Talk about the Amenities existing between rival members of the Journalistic profession. The editor of the Manchester Democrat invokes the muse, and writes thusly of H. L.

After insulting the couple they passed on and catching a young boy by the name of Gross threw him into the pond at the crossing of the Milwaukee and C. & N. W v . railways. They then determined to have some fun with Allen and the young lady, who had passed on down the Milwaukee track in the direction of Reimer's. They hurried around the couple and secreted themselves in the high grass at the cut opposite Reimer's house. When Allen and Miss Bowman arrived they were again insulted and a tight ensued. Rantzow— so the story goes— handed Hubbard a shoe maker's knife which he had in his pocket. Hubbard and Allen clinched and Rantzow turned his attention to the young lady, striking her in the face and kicking her several times. Turning to see how the fight progressed between Hubbard and Allen, Rantzow found that Allen was getting the best of it so he very un gallantly deserted Miss Bowman and turned his attention to Allen and tried to pull him off of Hubbard. Miss Bowman, in the meantime, had found a club and warped Rantzow two or three times back of the ear. Just at this juncture several men arrived and both Rantzow and Hubbard fled. Allen Avas assisted into Reimer's house aud Drs. Morse and Pride were summoned. An inventory of his wounds developed the following: One transverse cut just under the collar bone two inches long and one longitudinal just inside of right nipple five inches long, severing one rib; one on left arm from wrist to elbow, which cut extensor muscles of middle and ring finger. Marshal Daly and Deputy Sheriff Earl Stephens were put upon the track of Hubbard and Rantzow and both men were arrested within an hour. At Atkinson, Geo. B. Hall, H, C. Hoiien- beck, Alice 1>.

Y., Feb. 16,1820, where he resided until 1865 except the years 1865-56, which were spent in Mercer county, Illinois. He returned to Illinois in 1864 and remained until 1873 when he moved to Creston, Iowa, which continued to be his home until coming here to make his home with his daughter, Mrs. Gibson. He was married in 1851 to Mary J. Brown, who died in 1879. Four children were given them—two daughters and two sons, all of whom are living. His church connections have been, with the United Presbyterian church, of Sunbeam, Illinois, the Presbyterian church, of Creston, Iowa, and the Congregational church, of Algona. His life of 71 years has closed. Posessedof more than an ordinary amount of energy he found and gave full scope to it in agricultural pursuits only laying down active duties as his health failed. He had just returned from a visit to his old Crestou home, where he had gone hoping that familiar scenes might aid in restoring health. Services were conducted at his late residence by Rev. Davidson. His son Frank accompanied his remains to Creston for interment. Meeting of Normal School Association ALGONA, July 13,1881..

The first lecture of the Institute course will be given at the Congregational church, on Thursday evening, July 23d, by Clifton Scott, M.

Prof. Scott is the instructor in science at Highland Park Normal College, Des Moines, and comes to us highly recommended by the public and the press. This lecture is free to all, and we shall be pleased to see a full house. Every body is invited. last reports Allen was improving and will probably recover. Rantzow and Hubbard both have the reputation of being quarrelsome, troublesome men. A little penitentiary experience will do them good and the community can well afford to spare them. Rantzow is said to be an anarchist by profession and in sympathy with everything that is in opposition to law. The State of Iowa ought to be glad of an opportunity to send him to the penitentiary. The lecture at the M. E. church last Thursday evening by a native of Japan, was not very well attended. The lecture itself was very good, and the speaker's command of English very creditable.
