Cooke returned from his vaca- cation trip Friday evening. He reports a pleasant time. He attended the Grand Lodge of the Knights of Pythias at Sioux City during his absence. What is the use of writing an editorial on the McKinley bill as affecting the price of woolen goods, when a tailor like O. L. Foss will give such an ad. as he has in this week's BKPUU- LICAN. Miss Milla Erickson, of Chicago, is spending a few weeks visiting her brother, A. Erickson, the manager of the Queal lumber yard. Mr. Erickson's daughter Anna, is also at home on a visit. II. A.

At present there is not an all home print country paper, in all Northern Iowa. They all use the ready made insides. The BEPUDLICAN will be an all home print paper after Sept. 1st. Bead the BEPUBLICAIT hereafter. Bev. Geo. II. Kennedy of Eagle Grove who was appointed to fill Bev. Phil Ilanna's place as pastor of the Methodist Church at that place will preach here Sunday morning and evening, exchanging with Bev. Whitfield. We expect to publish a special edition of the Bancroft News next week and our scheme has met with a most liberal endorsement from the business men of Bancroft. They regard the News as a valuable advertising medium. Bey. Borne Walker preached in the Baptist church last Sunday morning according to announcement, and Walter preached in the Congregational church Sunday evening, the other phurches adjourning services for a union meeting. One Algona man has been kind enough to say, that in view oj( the various changes in the BEPUULJCHN. accomplished and contemplated, he would not be greatly surprised if the next thing we would be running a daily paper. i If you want anything particularly nice in the line of programs .jor wedding stationery come in and look over our samples and we will order especially for you, and you will then be sure to get something exactly suited to your taste. ' We would call the attention of all young people interested in a, college education, to the advertisement of Cornell College which appears in, this issue. No institution in the wast offers better advantages than Cornel. Send for a catalogue. : Mr. Frank M. Stacy and M£ss Ambrosine Nelson were married l^st Wednesday and have gone on a wedding tour to Dubuque. Frank is jndustri- ous aud is deserving of the good wife he has won. We wish theyouijg couple a rose-paved pathway through life. The Courier of last \veek accuses the BEPUBLICAN of being "inacurate" and spells inaccurate with one "c." Anyone is liable to make a mistake occasionally, excepting the Courier. We set up no claim for infallibility alongside of our Pharisaical contemporary.

He is now working for his father in the Becord* er's office. John Ray goes to Texas in the Course of a few days, where he has a job as blacksmith to the steam plow that operated north of Ledyard this summer. He will remain in Texas indeflnately. The plow was shipped last Saturday, Our Wesley correspondent makes sundry observations this week upon the bent of the press towards sensationalism, that are quite well taken, our correspondent believes in telling of the good and creditable things that have happened, and has, we think, the correct theory of running a newspaper. Mrs. Lucy Bigelow writes a long letter to her daughter, Rena, in Algona. telling of an overland journey of 100 miles from SanJacinto to SanDiego Gal., which she recently made in company with Mrs. A. Hough and other relatives. The letter, though very interesting, is too lengthy to be given in A Waterloo Special to the daily papers reports that a party of pearl fishers from Wisconsin have been engaged for the past three weeks in searching for pearls in the clams of the Cedar River, They found in that time about $400 worth of pearls having sacrificed m the search about 150,000 clams. 7, 000 clatos were opened before they found a single pearl. Mr. John Chapin, of Humboldt, informs us that the item in last week's paper taken from the Marshalltown Times-Republican reporting the death of old Mr. Shellenberger was incorrect to the extent that Mr. Shellenberger is still alive. He was taken suddenly ill Sunday while leading his class and his life for a time was despaired of. At last reports he was a great deal better. R. J. Hunt announces in this issue that he is in the field for the nomination for the office of sheriff on the Republican ticket. Mr. Hunt is a lately retired fanner, and one of the best men in the county. Should he succeed in securing the nomination he will most certainly be elected as he has a host of friends in the county who are anxious for a chance to work for him. J. K. Fill & Son are still to be found at their old stand and are doing a large business, as they always have done for the past twenty-five years. In fact Oliver says they have done more busi- dnring the past month of July and so far in the present month than they ever done before in the same months. They have as large and as choice a line of sample goods for their patrons to choose from as any merchant tailor in the county. See their ad. in this edition. • Miss Emma Cordingly, who has been visiting in the family of Wm. Cordingly the past year or so, left for her home in Yellow Springs, Ohio, last Thursday evening. Miss Cordingly has made a host of friends during her stay in Algona, who sincerely regret her departure. Miss Essie Cordingly went home with her and will stay about two months. The same evening Mrs. G. L. Galbraith left on a two months visit to Delevan, Wisconsin. The whole party will stop for a few days in Janesville. A stranger in Algona last week,after looking- over the town, came to the conclusion that Algona was one of the prettiest located towns in this part of the country. He praised the fine residences, business houses, etc., butfound one cause for complaint, and that was the enormous crop of weeds that grow on every vacant lot and border the sidewalks in so many parts of town. We respectfully refer this hint to the city council. And that ordinance about trimming up shade trees needs a little enforcement, too. A general shaking up has taken place around the REPUBLICAN office within the last week. The little office room formerly opcupied by Dr. West has been converted into a sanctum where we may be found at all times ready to accommodate the man who wants to pay up his subscription or lick the editor. The large room in front formerly used as an office has been turned into a composing room and is exceedingly well adapted to the purpose. We are getting squared around in shape to do business. Since the King episode everyone ought to be interested in "Imperial Millions" the serial story now running in the REPUBLICAN.. The plot turns upon the use of hypnotism in furthering schemes of villainy. The story is by Hawthorne and is of close interest. We do not pretend to say that Mr. King was really hypnotized. It is his theory however, that some mysterious influence was exerted upon him and be his theory correct or otherwise, the possible use of such an agencey is a fact and is well illustrated in the story The past two or three years have seen a marked improvement in the quality and style of Bill Nye's writings. They have lost to a great degree the suggestion of coarseness that formerly characterized them and now reflect the finer and keener elements of humor. As a humorist Bill Nye is to day more popular and more widely read than any other one of his American contemporaries. He is justly entitled to his popularity. The Nye letters will be a regular feature of the REPUBLICAN after it becomes an all home print paper. If you commence to read them you will read them regularly, The small boy and the matches came very near giving H. A. Paine's new hay barn, at the Northwestern depot, a baptism of fire Sunday evening. It seems that a little boy of Herman Schult was playing with matches by the side of the baru and had set fire to the hay outside, which communicated under the boards to the hay on the inside. Perry St. John was the first man on the spot and when he arrived the blaze was just creeping up through ten feet of hay. He immediately oegan stamping the hay down and thus smothered the fire till it could be extinguished. The fire bell was rune and a large crowd was sooa at the place. No great damage wa# done to tae hay or bam. . Not long a#6 We Deceived a letter from a young betiedicfc containing tf notice of nfs weddifig* The letter enA cldsed a vety acceptable dpllftr bill as a present) which surprised us to the degree that We have felt ever since like saying something about it. Trie idea of making the editor a little present for Writing up the wedding, after settling with the minister, has never before been known to strike the cerebrum of an Algona bridegroom. The average bride groom is mad if he doesn T t get a notice at all, and swears at the editor if he fails to get one that just exactly suits him, The minister jets a ten dollar bill and Is allowed to iiss the bride, while the editor gets a piece of cake—if he is lucky enough ;o get an invitation to the wedding— and a cussing. Now, space in a newspaper is worth something: For every stick of type that is set up the editor has to go down in his jeans and hunt around for some cold money. In some places it is customary for newspapers ;o charge for church announcements- wedding notices and obituaries, but in a town like Algona where such things are always published free of charge it is a very nice thing to do to remember e editor with a little "tip" when you get married. This will insure a satisfactory write up and will give you an ample guarantee that the editor will keep very quiet about it when the time comes to set the divorce mill a grinding. Plenty of Water—The Well stands a Satisfactory Test. The well is now all right. The work of putting down a screen point at the bottom of the six inch pipe which had been driven through the sand to the gravel bed at the bottom of the well, was completed Monday and the pumps started with very satisfactory results; The well yielding a steady flow of about 70 gallons per minute. This gives«us a good well and if the present supply does not fail, water enough for any probable emergency. •-*••_< Womaus Day at the State Fair. Wednesday, Sept. 2d, has been chosen as Woman's Day at the State Fair. Mrs. Mary J. Coggeshall, of Des Moines, president of the Iowa Womans Suffrage Association, writes, "the Agricultural Society has kindly tendered the use of its own shaded grounds for the occasion. Mrs. Carrie Jane Cheepman will come from Seattle, Washington, and speak at ten a. m. She is one of Iowa's most gifted daughters, is fairly abreast of the political and social reforms of the day, with a voice well adapted to out door speaking. President Head and Sec. Shaffer of the State Agricultural Society have kindly consented that the women of Iowa shall be given one day at the State Fair." Married.

From Mr. Norris it was earned that the men are two of the most notorious sharpers and bunko teerers in all the country, and that hey are wanted on account of several deals similar to the King affair. Their atest raise before coming to Algona was made down at Plattsburg, Missou- i, where they held up a man with drawn revolvers for $3,600. The citizens of Plattsburg organized a vigl- ance committee and employed Mr. Norris, who was put on the track of he men by a special about the King affair in one of the daily papers. Suspecting that Spencer and Clark, who vent by,the names of E. G. Sparks and Wm. Hass down in Missouri, were the men he wanted he left for Algona immediately, bringing with him photographs of the men and samples of their landwriting. Sheriff Stephens had cut the signatures of the two men from the •egister at the Thorington and their dentity was settled beyond a doubt when the several specimens of handwriting were compared and the photo- jraphs produced. Mr. Norris l«ft on ;he late train Sunday night for Chicago and has all confidence in securing his nen as he is personally-acquainted with joth men, h {W iug made their arrest about two years ago in Wisconsin, and snows just about where to find them if ;hey are still in Chicago. "Judge" Spencer is one of the most noted men in the great army of confidence men and Bunco steerers that make Chicago their headquartirs. Two years ago while resisting arrest in Quincy, 111., lie was shot and seriously wounded. After being hit he shot and killed the chief of police. He was tried for murder but was cleared by a shrewd lawyer on the plea of self defense. Sheriff Stephens failed to learn the real names of the men but they make two of the following gang of Chicago sharpers whose names are given in a circular handed to Sheriff Stephens by Mr. Norris: Tone O'Brien, Geo. W. Post, Lou Ludlum, Red Adams, Frank Smith,, Pete Conlisk, Ed Ray, Dan Scribner, John Blackwell, John Green and Charley Linnell. The following is a list of the operations which the above named fellows are known to have committed, taken from the circular mentioned.

The daily average temperature throughout the State was from one to two degrees above normal, the first half of the week being considerable warmer than the latter half. Sunshine was quite variable, but generally about an average obtained. On the 9th a heavy wind and rain storm, originating iia Ringgold or Decatur county, swept through the S. C. and S. E. districts to the Mississippi river and beyond, the general direction being a little north of east. The width of the belt of disturbance at its inception was fifteen to twenty miles; and it was fully fifty miles wide when it reached the river. It was a wind-squall of unprecedented force (not a tornado or "cyclone," as reported) and the damage to growing crops, stacks and shocks of grain and hay, buildings and fruit was very heavy in the aggr egate though the first reports were probably exaggerated. On the 13th a belt of hail passed through O'Brien and Decatur counties, causing heavy damage, estimated by one observer at a half million dollars.
