The REPUBLICAN is just now passing through a state of "unsettledness" that necessarily comes with a change of management, when there are a hundred things to do and think about besides getting out a newspaper. Several important changes in the make up and style of the paper are in contemplation, and it will be several weeks before everything becomes adjusted to the new state of affairs. In the meantime weask the forbearance of our patrons. Fine job work at REPUBLICAN office. All's. J. D. McDonald, of Burt, was in Algona, Monday. Guy Scott arrived home from Chicago Friday for a visit. Well, yes, it was hot Friday find Saturday—94 in the shade. D. A. Anderson was calling on his old Algona friends Saturday.

A daughter of Anton Bohn who lives about six miles south west of town is very sick with typhoid fever. Mrs. Geo. It.

Prof. ChaffeewenttoDes Moines last Thursday on business, and made a visit to his parents at Dysart before returning. The report about the new train service on the Northwestern road seems to be a fake. We hope to the contrary. A. G. Metzgar, who is now traveling for Franklin McVeagh, of Chicago, stopped over in Algona for a few days last week. Jas. Taylor's new goods are beginning to arrive. See what he has to say to you in our advestising column this week. Perry Ayers is in town for a two week's visit. Perry is now located at Sauborn and doing well in the photograph business. A mean Republican exchange says that the Des Moines Leader changes editors oftener than most Democrats change their linen. J. L. Paine was a city visitor yesterday. Mr. Paine is in poor health aud we hope to see him looking better as cool weather comes on. Dr. West has moved his office from the REPUBLICAN building and at present may be found at his residence in the southwest part of town. The Livermore Gazette editor has decided to take a rest and will, therefore not issue any paper this week. Rest, Brother, rest in peace. Mr. and Mrs. Jas. Taylor left Wednesday night for Chicago. They will run up into Wisconsin for a few days before returning and see if they can catch any fish at some of (be lakes.

They have a large list of lands. The V. W's., of the Babtist church, will give an ice cream social at the residence of Mr. G. M. Howard, Thursday, August 13. All are cordially invited to be present. O. L. Foss has an acl with us this week. He has j ust put in his fall stock of goods and invites you to call and look them over. Xow is the time to order your fall clothing. The rain of Monday morning was just heavy enough to stop haying and harvesting operations for a few hours and consequently many of the farmers took advantage of it and came to town. D. B. Avey is going into the harness business on his own hook, having opened a shop in the old Lacy barn opposite the Tennant House. Mr. Avey is a good workman and ought to succeed. Mr. F. K. Butler has secured the agency for several popular periodicals and very fine line photograph albums, pictures etc. He will soon begin to visit the people of the county and show his outfit. The Marshalltown Times of Monday reports that old Mr. Shellenberger, father of Geo. Shellenberger, of Ilum- boldt, died in church at Marshalltown last Sunday. The family are well known in this county. Algona people to the number of 147 went on the Sunday excursion to Spirit Lake. Two trains went over the road and by the time they reached the lake each engine was drawing 12 coaches and all of them packed full. It is reported that prairie chickens are much more plentiful than usual this fall. Some of the boys can't wait and are rushing the shooting season. It should be kept in mind that the game law is not off until Sept. 1st. With one or two exceptions there isn't an "all home print" country newspaper within a radius of one hu milesof Algona. The REPUBLICAN wiu be anall home print paper after Aug. 12, and will be a better paper for it. The REPUBLICAN sign has been repainted and is now one of the neatest looking signs in town "if we do say it ourselves as hadn't ought to." "Jfo man need err now in looking for a place to have a neat piece of job work done. The new oiiice and dry shed of the Hamilton lumber company are bein pushed toward completion. The olu shed that stood near the Wigwam has been moved to the new ground and that corner now presents a business ap pearance. Harvesting is about completed and the thresher is getting in its work. The yield of wheat and oats is reported good and tho quality first class. The prices of farm produce are likely to be comparatively high and the demand strong. W. B. Quarton's professional card appears iu this issue. "Quart" is one of the younger lawyers but he has the get there element iu his make up and in the few years that he 1ms been in Algona, has built up a solid and substantial practice. Mr. Erickson, the new agent 101 J. H. tjueal Lumber Company, is ting back the old business of the — and putting things ou a good foundation. He is & competent and hoaoi 1 able business man and believes io dealing or woae at" m m for the get- cm Ydu can alwafa tell whew to deal by looking over the hewBtiafyei 1 for the men who advertise, They are the pushing, energetic business men; the men who are after trade and the men who get It, The marriage license business has been pretty dnll for the past two weeks, we had no licenses to report last week at all and only have one for this Week's REPUBLICAN. License was issued to P. R, Crose and Angle Hunt. Thos. J. Miller, the popular barber in Brunei- & Slade's shop, had more ride than the Spirit Lake excursion called for. On tile return trip he lay down and went to sleep and was carried by, arriving in Algona Monday morning. F.L. Parish and J. C. Blackford took a trip to Humboldt Saturday evening on their bicycles. They started home early Monday morning and got caught in the rain at Irvington, where they stopped and took the freight train to Algona. Seymour Allen has been able to get around for the past two or three weeks but it will be a long time before he can shoe horses again. His wounds have all healed nicely but it requires some time to recover from a carving of the kind that he received. Geo. Minkler came home from Cylinder Saturday for a few hours. Mrs. Minkler is expected home from her Illinois visit this week. It is quite probable that Mr. Minkler win move to Cylinder, having received a good offer to remain there in the creamery for a year. Of all the places of confusion we have seen lately, the hardware store of J. W. Robinson has been about the worst. Cause: house cleaning. And when the cleaning up process is done with we venture the statement that this same store will be about the neatest one in town. Marshall Dailey informs us that they have succeeded in getting one screen point down to the gravel bed underlying the ten or twelve feet of sand in the bottom of the city well. It is thought that an abundant s*w>ly of water has been secured and a test is to be made this evening. John Holloway, well known to many Algona people, was in town Monday morning. Interviewed by our reporter, he said that Mr. and Mrs. J. D. Wallace are now in Minneapolis, where Dick has a position in a wholesale grocery house. John is on the road for a wholesale fruit house. Some men from Dubuque were in Algona last week writing up the town and County at so much a "write up." As far as we were able to ascertain they were quite successful. The write up is to be published in pamphlet form and the pamphlets distributed among the advertisers for circulation. Lieut. J. M. Bowyer of the United States navy, a brother of E. G. Fowyer is in town on a short visit. He has just returned from a long cruise in the Pacific ocean and is enjoying a little furlough before reporting at Auna- apolis where he is detailed to go Sept., 1st as an instructor in the Naval academy. Des Moines Capital: "A lady visitor at tlie agricultural college not long ago, asked Prof. Stalker whether Trot. James Wilson was a relative of the politician she had heard called 'Tama Jim Wilson.' 'OhV said the quick- witted veterinarian, 'he's the very man himself. 'Tama Jim' was his maiden name.' " Our readers will find a selected serial story in the REPUBLICAN regularly hereafter. We will publish nothing trashy but make our selections from among the latest stories of our best modern authors. Parties desiring back copies of the story we are now running will be furnished with them us long as the supply lasts. Letters for the following parties were uncalled for at the Post Office week ending Aug. 10. Mi«a Mattie Mitchell, Mr. Lou Williams, Miss Mamie Seeley, Rawson B. Springer, Mr. J. II. Smith, Mr. Mell Miller, Geo. K. Green, J. II. Gilmore. C. K. Fellows, E. Elsted, Frank Browning, F. Burk, and Silas Cone. Cupt. Tyrrell of Belmond and C. C. St. Glair of Marshalltown, were here yesterday making further arrangements in regard to the new bank that is to be started here in the near future. Further information in regard to the bank will be published next week. Capt. Tyrrell left last night for points in Dakota where he has 1800 fat cattle to sell. v Edgar W. Nye—Bill Nye—is paid an average of 15 cents a word for his weekly letters, by the American Press Association. As a humorist of his own particular class Mr. Nye is today with out a peer in any one that writes the English language. The Bill Nye letters will be published in the REPUBLICAN regularly after it becomes an all home print paper. The Emmetsburg Democrat came out in rather strong terms last week on the subject of prize fighting. An attempt was made by the city authorities of Emmetsburg to stop the prize fight which took place there last week but it was unsuccessful. The prize fight is a de-civilizing institution that there ought to be some law to regulate if not entirely suppress. An examination will be held at Fort Dodge on Tuesday, August 11, at 9 o'clock a. m., to select a candidate for the naval academy cadetsnip, made vacant by the resignation of Cadet Bond. Young men between the ages of 15 aud 20 are eligible if 'physically and mentally qualified. Candidates will be examined in the common school branches including elementary algebra. Grinnell had a $50,000 fire last Wednesday. Two years ago an entire block was swept out by fire at a loss of $200,000. For years the people of the town have been figuring on the subject »f waterworks, but have always been divided upon the question of the advisability of putting iu a system. It ought not to require many more fires to bring the whole town around to the idea of waterworks. Mr. Milt Hollabaugh, of Vintou,will succeed Willis HallocJk as foreman in the REPUBLICAN office and will commence his reign in the comuosJiug room some tune next ajoatj). MX- young w*» ol pieaMnj ad- ttfld abundant experience, hating been tor several years foreman 6f 'one 6f the oldest newspapers of cetitral Iowa. He is a first class jdb printer and has every bther Qualification for a good foreman. Bro, Bush, of the Hancock Signal, attended the County Convention nere a week ago last Friday, and then went home and spoke as follows In his paper about Algoha. "Algona has grown into a city of the 2d class and 18 a beautiful place. We were surprised at the »any improvements whlcu have been made in the past few years; fine business blocks and residences, improved streets and water works. They show push and enterprise and we congratulate its citizens.'' A prominent citizen of Algona received a confidential letter last week from a man in the east who deals in sounterfeit money, and offering said itizen some of the "queer" for a small amount of the genuine cash. Enclosed with the letter was a newspaper clipping telling how 1iard it was for even money experts to tell the difference between the counterfeit and the genuine bills. Such men should be pulled. But is it not strange that if he (the counterfeiter) can make such perfect imitation bills that he should want some of the genuine ones. Gapt. John Palmer, new commander in-chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, was born on Staten Island, March 22,1842, and has a splendid war record. He served in the Ninety-first New York volunteers and was constantly with the regiment until it was mustered out, taking part in all its en- -agements. Since the war he has ieen engaged in the fresco painting and decorating business at Albany, N. Y. As a member of the G. A, R., he for several terms was commander of Lew Benedict post No. 5, was elected commander-in-chief of the New York department, and in 1879 was elected senior vice commander-in- chief. all of which important positions he filled with credit. He is said to be a forcible speaker and a model presiding officer. Eagle Grove Times: For the past two years Ora Watkins, a young man of this county, has been engaged in perfecting a knotter that would bind grain with a hay rope, instead of expensive twine. C. E. Albrook, apromi- nent attorney of this place has fu*nish- ed the capital for the expenses of having the device patented, and is a large owner in the machine. Saturday, after having previously notified the various manufactures of harvesting machines to send representatives to witness a trial exhibition, experts from the Buckeye, McCormick and other leading manufacturers had arrived, they proceeded to a field of oats near town and made a thorough test of the merits of the binder, and it was pronounced by all the machine men present to work to perfection. Messrs. Albrook and Watkins have at least a small fortune in their patent. Dr. Jas. Barr has just received a letter from H. S. Vaughn, dated Denver, Colo., August 5th, conveying the sad intelligence of the sudden death of their son, Sidney. It seems that Sidney was away in Northern California on a vacation with Rev. J. II. Webber, hunting, fishing, etc. On the evening of the 4th Mr. Vaughn received the following telegram, coming without a word of warning: "Sidney died yesterday from typhoid fever. Sick about a week. Will have him embalmed in a metallic case. I leave Eureka, Cal., Wednesday and arrive in Denver Sunday morning. Answer. J. Weber." Mr. aud Mrs. Vaughn and family have many friends in Algona who will sympathize deeply with them in this loss, Speaking for himself, Mr. Vaughn says: "I thought I had known trouble but I had not. He had become so companionable to me, helping me in my office and in my business. He was 15 on the 17th ult." Sidney was a remarkably good and bright boy, loved by all and his death will leave an empty void in many hearts. Palo Alto Reporter: The editor does not care a cent if he is accused of puritanical ideas for entertaining the opinion that prize fighting is the lowest kind of sport human beings can engage in or look upon. The idea that there is anything compensating in the science and muscular development displayed is all Jpsh. There is not a redeeming feature in the prize ring, and it ought not to be tolerated anywhere. To dub a slugger "Professor" is as much of a misnomer as to call a thief "honorable." A "slugger a is only a "slugger," and it'is the worst kind of toadism for respectable people to encourage him to think his calling is honorable. John L. Sullivan is only a drunken loafer, and it is a sad commentary on the good sense of the American people that his brutal physical achievements have given him such a world-wide notoriety, unsavory though it be. That such things can get sufficient encouragement to live, is one of the astonishing things of the nineteenth century. A friend hands us the following report of the races at Mason City Wednesday and Thursday last. The first race of Wednesday was a free for all trot for a purse of $500, won by Blairs- berry, owned by C. R. Beamer, Blackburn, Mo., time 2:19|. The second race was a 2:33 class trotting for purse of $1,000, won by Cliuker Jr., owned by C. B. Cooke, Boone, la., time 2:2H. The third race was a 2:40 class, pacing, for purse of $500 and won by Fred K. owned by Gould & Miller, Fuljerton, Nebr.,time 2:214. Fred K is only a colt being less than three years old but he is a daisy and made the race without a break. The first race for Thursday was a 2:23 pacing for purse of $l r 000, and was won by Deacon, owned byG, B, Dougherty, Leon, la., time 2:20. Deacon is a long necked animal and af one time had a disease of the throat, which left the air passages somewhat contracted so that when at wqrk the horse could not get air enough to breathe. To obviate this difficulty a silver tube was inserted in his wind pipe one end projecting out 3ust under the jaw. The case is very peculiar, when in the stable this tube is corked up but in a race it is unstopped and tho horse breathes bojtli naturally and arWftciaUy. In. this jrape th§ye were ten eateies- Tj&e secpnA race was a 3=40 - STAtKfift CONfjjRMS SAYEfiS, the Pftitf AitA C«ttt« l)in6M« in in., tad 1i* »f. Stalker, Who Canfitttt* Kvotf n«u*>f t ot t>*. snyefvi. Several weeks ago a disease broke out in a herd of cattle in Great Oak township, Palo Alto county. The cattle would at first appeal: to be uneasy, gradually gettlnaf worse and apparently crazy, when paralysis would set 111 and in a short time the animal would die. The case was reported to Gov» Boies, who ordered Dr. Sayera, of Algona, to make an investigation. Mr. Bayers did so, and after a careful investigation and analysis of the symptoms, pronounced the disease impao- tion of the omasum, or third stomaoh. His conclusions were that the disease had its origin in local causes, principally bad water, and that it was not a new disease nor in any way contagious. From his report to Dr. Stalker, that gentleman reports as' follows to Gov. Boies: The history of the present outbreak is about as follows: Three herds of cattle are kept on the Des Moines river bottom, some four miles from Emmetsburg. They are kept on the same general pasture grounds, but in separate bunches. Ordinarily the cattle are taken to the river for their water. Eecent rains have filled some basins on the bottom lands and back water from the river has inundated some portions of the low lands. One of the herds has been allowed to drink from these pools. This herd contained something- like 200 animals, and it was in this lot that the disease made its appearance. Not a case has yet appeared in either of the other herds, though they were grazing on the same bottom lands. About 40 cases have occurred up to date, all of which have died, with the exception of about a half dozen, which are now sick. The present cases are much less severe in type than the earlier ones, with a fair prospect that a portion of the present cases may recover. The pools have been fenced to prevent any further access, and such remedies as seem rational have been recommended for any further cases which may occur. Tlw history of the outbreak, the clinical symptoms and post mortem appearance tally closely with what I have seen in several instances. These cases are frequently reported by local board of health as cases of rabies. Materials have been collected from various tissues of the body, and lab- aratory experiments are now being conducted at the college with a view to more definate determination as to the specific causes leading to the development of the disease. I will be pleased to inform you from time to time of our progress in these investigations. I am -your* very truly, M. Stalker. The cattle owners, however, were not satisfied with Dr. Bayers investigation and wanted Dr. Stalker. Prof. Stalker could not come but sent Prof. Niles, who went to the herd ground with Dr. Bayers and found everything exactly according to the report of that gentleman. The owners were still not satisfied and insisted on having Prof. Stalker make an investigation in person. Last Wednesday Mr. Stalker came up and in company witli Mr. Sayers visited the herd ground, talked with all the farmers in the neighborhood. made a thorough examination and confirmed Dr. Sayers at every point.
