QUILL DRIVERS MEET AGAIN, .A Profitable Meeting.—About Fort; Mow the Kdltorn were Entertained. Algona was well represented at the Editorial Convention held in Foft Dodge last week—all three editors being present throughout the entire session of the convention,—and was very highly honored by the Association. The next meeting will be held in this city abont January 1st—the exact date to be determined later. Ambrose A. -Call and Mrs. Lizzie B. Reed were elected honorary members of the Association. Bro. Ingham, of the Upper Des Moines, was elected President of the Association for thecoming term. Harvey was further honored as toast master for the editors at the banquet Friday evening and acquitted him- ••selJ! after his usual happy manner. Fort Dodge is a good town and the visiting editors were right royally en " tertained. v They were told to paint the town red if they wanted to, and if they saw aught that they coveted to help themselves. The business meetings of the Association were held in the G. A. E. hall which was very kindly tendered for that purpose, and the Friday evening's program was held at Fessler's -Opera House. Luncheon was served at the Masonic Hall at noon Friday and the banquet at the Park Hotel Friday night. Friday afternoon was devoted to a carriage drive over the •city and a visit to the different manufacturing enterprises which are the boast of the town. Fort Dodge has the largest Stucco works in the United .States. Through the courtesy of the Minneapolis & St. Louis Railway the convention was enabled to visit these works which are located about ;Six miles out of town. A large factory has recently been erected in Fort Dodge for the manufacture of oat meal. The machinery has not yet been placed in the building but it is proposed to have "the factory in operation by fall. A very interesting sight to most of the -editors was afforded at White's Pottery works. Most of the party which visited the pottery works had a very vague conception of all that was meant by the old simile that they had all so of ten used—"like clay in the hands of the potter." After seeing the process of .making a jug they will now use the expression with a better appreciation of its meaning. That Fort Dodge is a growing city of increasing business importance was the unanimous opinion of the editors after .•seeing and investigating the business interests of the place. The city supports two daily papers and several weeklies. The town that gives the right kind of support to its newspapers so far as our individual observation goes, is always the growing town. It would not be just to pass by our mentionofFt.Dodge and the convention without reference to the kind manner in which the lady visitors were entertained by the ladies of the city. A musicale was arranged for their entertainment Thursday evening and a very fine art collection was displayed to them in the Masonic hall Friday fore- n where they had an opportunity to icome acquainted while the editors ere engaged in a business session. The Opera house was crowded for the program Friday evening. Hon. J. P. Dolliver delivered the address of welcome which was responded to by Pres. Schai'fter of the editorial association. Hon. Sam Clarke of the Keokuk Gate City was then introduced and delivered the address of the evening. Mr. Clarke is an editor of scholarly attainments and a polished orator. His "Talk upon Journalism" was appreciated by the editors and well received by the audience. Following Mr. Clark's address a paper was read by Eugene Schaffter upon the subject of "Foreign Newspapers." Mr. Schaffter has rejently returned from an extended totft in Europe and he picked up many facts during his absence with reference to European newspapers that were very interesting to an audience acquainted only with the American newspaper. Secretary of State, McFarland was to have had a part in the evening's program. Very much to the disappointment of every one, the Secretary telegraphed at the last moment that he was unable to come. A full report of the convention will be published in supplement form, next week. H«f»~l THE RACES.

All communications to the KWPWiiMOAy— Including news letters—must be signed by the author to Insure publication. WHITTKMOBE. Special Correspondence. July 15.— The CAN proof reader is responsible for a little mistake that appeared in our announce ment of the program for the dedication of the new German M. E. church in Fenton next Sunday. Everybody will meet at the school house where the society has held services for the past sixteen years at 9:80 a. m.— not 6:80 as the REPUBLICAN made us say last week. After a brief farewell service at the school house all will proceed to the church where preaching will be held in the morning and afternoon. Whittemore again to the front. Our bride and bridegroom have returned from their wedding journey and settled down to sober house keeping in the rooms above the depot. May success and prosperity be theirs. Misses May and Bertha Hotelling closed their summtr terms of school last Friday, and are home to enjoy a well earned vacation. Miss Lizzie Chrischilles has returned from Wisconsin, where she has been at tending school. The party of Whittemoreites who spent a week camping out »t the Okaboji lakes, returned last week, well and hearty. They tell marvelous tales of the number of fish they caught and especially the number they ate, both statements we believe to be strictly true, who ever heard of au untrue story being told about fish? Mr. Alex. White, of Algona, made a short business trip to our town last Thursday. Mr. J. L. Samson and wife who have been visiting their brother's family in Whittemore, returned to their home in Amboy, Minn., last Wednesday. Mr. Geo. Boyle went east last week in response to a telegram stating his wife was much worse. Mr. and Mrs. Anderson mourn the loss of their youngest child. The little one died very suddenly lask Jieek. The bereaved parents have the sympathy of all. The German. Methodist church, nine miles north of town, is to be dedicated next Sunday. Every one is cordially invited, and a number of our people are talking of going. A do/en or more teams were in town Monday hauling the lumber for the German Lutheran parsonage at Fenton. A good elocutionory entertainment was given last Tuesday evening, to a fairly good house, by two young ladies who were stopping with friends in town.Their names we are unable to learn. The tent containing the wonderful eight legged horse, two headed calf, etc., etc., where so many of our small boys and young (?) men were relieved of their dimes, has departed. Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Beattie received some valuable wedding presents from their numerous friends and well-wishers. New potatoes demand $1 per bushel. Our sick ones are gaining. Mr. Munch is reported steadily improving under the care of Dr. Phelps. Miss Alice Miller spent a few days last week at her home northwest of Algona. Jos. Meyer and wife lost a little boy last week. Burglars visited our town on Monday night and went through the stores of J. M. Farley aud Henry Munch, but were frightened away before securing anything of value. They then visited the hard ware ttore of A. Schmidt and got away with two good shot guns, two revolvers, a number of razors and pocket knives, and a lot of cigars— all amounting to $75 or $80. There is no clue to the perpetrators as Fred Alunch, who was sleeping in his father's store and saw the men, was too much frightened to give the alarm until three or four hours him on the shin, laying the flesh open to the bone. Sim has been getting around since by the aid of a cane, but will soon be his own, irrepressible self again. Judge Carr evidently intended that his oration should be something more than a fourth of July oration. We have heard many of the old, stereotyped speeches of the growth of the country from the time of the landing of the pilgrims at Plymouth Rock to the present time, which of itself is interesting and is conducive to national pride. But it has been repeated until it has become stale, and is often used only to take up time. Judge Carr, however, branched off into new and interesting subjects and his speech was well worth hearing. It was a splendid effort, and is highly spoken of by all who had the pleasure of hearing him. was on our WKSMSY. Special Correspondence. WESLEY, July 14.—Business going on as usual.

The time is approaching when the text book problem must be settled, and we teachers desire to keep the minds of the voters awakened to its importance. I believe county uniformity will make better teachers and better schools. It will also insure lower prices of text books. The intent of the law is to furnish good and standard books at a much lower price than heretofore charged by retail dealers. Since the county board of education are to select the books, the best available are insured. This board has the power and is authorized to sell them directly to the pupils at publisher's prices. Why pay our retail dealers from $1.10 to $1.50 for a book that, under this law, niay be obtained for 70 or 80 cents, and other books in like proportion. County uniformity must make better teachers, for, while it is known that every good teacher has different books to which she may have access, she must be thoroughly familiar with the text book used in order to teach it well. The use of different books found in many of our schools necessarily requires so great a number of classes that the teacher has not sufficient time to do justice with each class, and consequently can not do as satisfactory work as could be done with fewer classes. Let all interested in our schools give this matter serious consideration and use their influence to make the public sentiment of the community unanimous in favor of this action. M. M. II.
