U. meeting will be held in the Beading room on Friday afternoon, at 3 o'clock. A good will be prepared, and all are oallty, runs from 180 to 160 an acre. Kossuth County has room yet for many good citizens, but it is only a question of time when land here will be worth $30 an acre. The lecture by Prof. Clifton Scott before the teachers of the institute last Thursday evening drew out a good house. The professor lectured upon the subject of Physiology and hygiene illustrating his lecture with stereopticon views. A large number of the views were devoted to showing the effect of alcohol upon the human system. Company P. can boast of some good marksmen, and it is the men who shoot to kill that count for something in a war with the Indians. Mike Walsh last week brought his score as a marksman up to the point that qualities him as a sharp shooter, and Will Harvey qualified as a marksman. There are several more who will qualify as marksmen in a few days. The council met in regular session Saturday evening, and among other things done, ordered the building of a sidewalk from the northeast corner of block 224, and running east to the northeast corner of block 226.

At the recent meeting of the Northern Iowa Baptist Association in Bancroft a paper was read by Miss Jenpie Bailey, of Algona, on the subject "How shall we raise our benevolence money?" The paper is as follows: Hosts of beautiful theories crowd into the mind in answer to this question. Theories which, if practical, will forever do away with the discussion of this topic. Pastors would no longer urge their congregations to greater benevolence; neither would the Negro, the Indian, theBurman, the African, nor the waifs of our cities vainly hold their hand in suppliance to us, for money would be given in abundance. t This is an age when every effort is strained to the utmost, that money for benevolent purposes may be obtained, and the number of schemes for raising money are legion. t . There is the lottery system, raising in an ascending scale from the "grab- bag" to the fair, where silk quilts, on paintings, and point lace are raffled off at five dollars a ticket. If this should not suit your taste, vou in the neat future.

Mrs. Carter is an aunt and the other ladies are sister and cousins of the Carlton brothers. The Hamilton Lumber Co. are pushing things right along. It is the intention to extend their dry shed north to the walk, and build an office. A plan- ing mill will be put in, and this, with the machinery on hand, will make quite a valuable plant. Livermore Gazette. Invitations are out for the marriage of our townsman P. II. Crose, to Angle Hunt, of Bancroft, to take place August 4th at Bancroft, Iowa. These worthy people are both well known in these parts, and all will be interested in their welfare. Mike Hubbard and Herman Rant/ow were brought before Esquire Taylor decided to" wait 30 days before accepting it. A large number of bills were allowed. Archie Hutchison has returned to Algona again and declares his intention of embarking in the real estate business. There is money in northern Iowa land just now if there is money in anything. Archie recently made a tour down into Texas to look at some of the bargains you read about, and after swinging around the circle in search of a good place to locate, he brought up in Kossuth county which we are bound to admit was a very sensible thing for him to do. Work on the well will probably commence today. The machinery arrived several days ago, and the time up to the date, has been consumed in getting II wllS suouiu iiuii suii; yuiu. tcioLc, jru". may resort to the eating and drinking system. This plan admits of as great variations as the preceding, but is usually after this fashion: The ladies bake and boil and fry and steam various compounds, known best to themselves; then they carry bread and meat and cake and pickles, and other things too numerous to mention, to some appointed place. At a time previously announced, all who will may come, and by paying the magnificent sum of faf- teen cents, may eat until it seems as though a famine is imminent. This system is a species of benevolence in tself, for the public is given at least twice as much as the amount by which ;he treasury is increased. There is also the theatre system. Dramas may be produced, tableaux presented and operas sung. First cous- • . A XI. ! ~ S j-, t-1t ft 14 4-m»r» -%*TT O it in readiness for operation. The plan is to put down several large pipes with screen points. If it is jkojflble to get these pipes down to the gravel underlying the sand vein, the supply of water will be unlimited. An Aurora, 111., Co. has taken the contract for doing the job. They have sent one man here with the machine, who is to superintend the work. A large audience greeted Rev. Sherman Lumbar at the M. E. church Sunday evening, the service being a union one of the Baptists and Methodists The sermon was a good one and tellingly delivered. His subject was the well worn theme of Jonah fleeing to Tarshish but was treated in an original way, the text being: "Arise, call upon thy God, if so be that God will think upon us, that we perish not." The theme of the discourse was the call of the world upon the Christian and itwas full of practical points. Now the Courier says that it was misquoted by the REPUBLICAN in what it said about the cost of clothing being increased ou account of the McKinley bill. We quoted the Courier's exact words several times and if the editor of the Courier didn't mean what he really said in such explicit language, in the name of all the gods at once what did he mean? The Courier's DIED. Mrs. Elmer H. Slagle, who has been sick for several weeks, quietly passed! away at half past ten o'clock last evening at the home of P. L. Slagle. Mrs. Slagle was a young woman and greatly beloved by all who knew her. 'A little babe only a few weeks old is left to the tender care of others. The husband and family have the sympathy of the whole community in their hour of sorrow. Only about a week ago, Mr. Abel, father of deceased, died at his home in Bavenna, Ohio, and the sad news was never broken to Mrs. Slagle. Mr. Slagle, who is a railway mail clerk, came home from his run Monday and was with his wife to the last. Addie J. Abel was born in Bavenna, Portage county, Ohio, Sept. 9, 1862. She came to Iowa to visit a sister in 1882 and decided to make Algona her permanent home; was married Sept. 24,1884, to Elmer II. Slagle to whom, she has been a loving, faithful wife and helpmate, always patient amidst her sufferings and hopeful to the end that life might be spared. She died like one falling asleep, without pain, and surrounded by loving friends and family. Her husband and two daughters, Ethel and Lois, survive her. The funeral will occur at the M. E.. church to-morrow (Thursday) at two o'clock. kSJL\>uvs*-t*>wv» ».•»**••• •«• f •—— ™— ---- c? n^t in to this is the literary system. The whole community must undergo an upheaval, to obtain a literary program, and people to listen at thirty cents a Time would fail to tell of them all. The social system, with its cobweb, crazy, pink, high and bluejay teas; the observation, curiosity, lemon, zoological, art socials, etc., are all but infinite in number. These are tbe means often taken to raise money. .,,,., i There is another way which,although extremely old fashioned, is sanctioned by the Scriptures, and was practiced at the express command of God. When the tabernacle was to be built m the Wilderness, Moses said to the Children of Israel: "Take ye from among you an offering unto the Lord; whosoever is of a willing heart, let him bring it, an offering of the Lord." And then follows a list of the materials needed in the construction of the tabernacle. But what interests us most is the success of this method. We are not left in doubt. "They (the workmen) spake unto Moses saying, The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work, which the Lord commanded to make. 'And Moses gave commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, Let neither man nor woman make any more work for the offering ot the THE POLITICAL CAULDRON. The political pot has been bubbling away very industriously during the past week and an intefesting convention is promised for next Friday. Nearly all the interest thus far has. centered in senatorial matters. Mr. Clarke and Mr. Jones have each raad& spirited canvass of the county and thfr friends of both have been hard at work. No more spirited fight was ever made in the county to capture a convention- and it is largely a matter of speculation at this writing which candidate will enter the convention with the- larger backing. Following are the delegates to. the- convention chosen at the Algona Ward Caucuses, Monday night. Of the Algona delegation Mr. Clarke claims, nine, and Mr. Jones six votes. First Ward—J. W.

The Weather Crop Bulletin for last week reports that the amount of rainfall of last week was largely in excess of the seasonal average in all parts or the state, except portions of the S. E. aud E. C. districts. The electric storm on the night of the 21st and morning of 22d was accompanied by high wind in many localities and considerable damage is reported by lightning and Hoods and the leveling of growing crops. The harvest was delayed but I no irreparable damage has been done. In the southern aud central districts spring grain is mostly harvested and threshing has begun. In the northern districts harvesting is in progress Making due allowance for damage by rust, lodging and insects, with favoring conditions for securing crops, the State will this year produce at least an average amount of hay, oats, barley, fiax, wheat and potatoes. Pasturage is unusually good. Corn is late, and to make an average crop must have warm weather throughout August and the larger part of September. strained from bringing. For the stuff they had was sufficient for all the work, to make it, and too much." Suppose Moses had said, "Take ye from among you an offering of milk, and cream, and sugar, and lemon extract, and make ice cream; and ye women make pin cushions and sofa pil- and bring hither the fatted chick- tind let us hold a fair." Would fiyiU there"have"~been need of restraining them from bringing? Or suppose Joash, when he was "minded to repair the temple," had lilled the chest with sawdust and jwickages containing shaving books, chewing gum, blotters, button hooks and rag babies, and had sold the contents at fifteen cents a spoonful. Do you think they would have "gathered money in abundance?" Jesus said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." We fail to real- i/e the blessedness of giving, because we so seldom give without receiving something in immediate return. It seems to me that our benevolence money, our money for the support of missions, should be given' willingly with the heart." "Freely ye have received, freely give." We caunot give freely, when we merely change our money into something good to eat, and then eat it ourselves.

He retraced his steps to Algona, and on the street ran across Henry Stone, who knew him, and to whom he told his story. Henry immediately got a team and took him home, arriving in the evening, much to the joy of his family and friends." It is the general opinion that overwork, sickness of his wife,and neuralgia had affected his head, but that with a little rest he will be all right again. A shoot has been arranged between C. C. Colins, of Fort Dodge, and H. J. Wilson, of Emmetsburg, to take place at Emmetsburg to-morrow. They will shoot 1000 bluerocks each for a wager of $1000 a side.

Carroll Herald: Beports come from Breda of a big find of lead ore on J. Hoebing's farm, one mile northeast ot town. The Vauder Haden brothers were drilling a well for Mr. Hoebing, and being unable to procure enough water they went to the depth ot four hundred feet. Before reaching that depth, however, three feet of lead ore was bored through, many fine specimens being brought to the surface. Wm. Arts, of Carroll, an old lead miner, has visited the place and brought back specimens of the ore which he pronounces of a very hign class. Little doubt remains in the minds of those who are well informed, that this is a boaa fide find of lead ore in paying quantities. If there is lead at Breda there is lead in other parts of the (wunty-rpojjsibly nearer Carroll, be DeWitt's Little Early Risers never gripe or cause nausea. Mild but sure, assist rather than force.
