She makes her headquarters at Sioux City. Mr. Disbro, a former Algona business man, i\o\v of Northern Illinois, is in town for a few days, the guest of'II. J. Edens. The south roof of the school house has been undergoing repairs during the week. New shingling, new trimming, etc. Miss Lillie Ranks left for Davenport this morning where she will spend her vacation of six weeks from the bookkeeper's desk. Agent Vesper says that the fast C. & N. W. train that some of our contemporaries were excited about recently, is all a myth. A large number of the Odd Fellows and G. A. R. men of Algona, attended the funeral of Henry Munch at Whittemore yesterday. Large numbers of the country people brought their children in to see the animals last Friday. There was a good crowd in town for the circus. A report of the real estate deals for the past week was crowded out of this issue by a rush of other matter. A full report will be given next week. Mr. Willard Secpr, of Winnebago City, assistant cashier of the Faribault County Bank, with his wife, visited old college friends in Algona over Sunday. The rain of Wednesday night was a damper on new hay. We hear of several parties who had one or more day's cutting down and just raked up into bunches. We would call attention to the fact that we are located hero permanently, for the manufacture and sale of cemetery work in Marble, Granite and Stone. We now have and intend to keep in stock a fair line of finished Monuments, Headstones, etc., and will guarantee all work to be equal to ilia best. We are the only manufacturers of cemetery work ill Kos- sutn Co. Therefore.please uive us a call before placing your order and be convinced that by lair and honorable dealing, we are worthy your patronage. ALGONA MARBLE WORKS, SHELLEY * HAUL, Proprietors We have yet to hear of an editor that reads the patent iusides of his own paper. The patent is a trashy concern and no body appreciates it better than the editor. Editor Hinchon, of the Courier, attended the Dutcli picnic in Greeiiwod- od township yesterday. We would like to know what an Irishman wants with a Dutch picnic anyway. Artist Hudson obtained some large orders for photographs from the Wallace & Co. circus. He went with them from Algona as far as Spencer, returning home Monday night. The REPUBLICAN has been getting some very nice notices from outside exchanges lately about its proposed change to an '-all home print" paper. Our Algona contemporaries have nothing to offer oo the question. Mrs. M. Wilson* of this city, will leave sometime next mbnth for Stock* ton, CaL« where she will spend ft year and a half with relatives* She has two brothers there. Rev, I\ M, Smith presented this office last Thursday, with,one of the largest potatoes we have ever seen in captivity. It Is an Early Bose, and one of his own raising. A Mrs. Nichols, a sister of John Wallace, and a Mrs. Harris, a sister of C. C. Chubb, all from near Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, arrived in Algona this morning for a few weeks visit. Williams lias offered the owners of Starabotil and Nelson $5,000 to cover expenses and any price they wish to name, if they will bring those two famous stallions to Independence to meet Allerton. Corwith Crescent: Chris Rasmusson, near Renwick, lost four horses last Thursday. They were struck by lightning during the storm, while in the barn. The barn and, balance of contents were uninjured Mr. Getz and Miss Cora Henderson of El more, Minn., made an overland trip from the above place and have been visiting with the hitter's many friends and relatives of this place and vicinity for the past few days. C. B. Paul and wife will go to Iowa Falls about the 7th of September, where Clarence enters the University for a three years' course in medicine. We look to see Mr. Paul make his mark in the medical profession. One of the neatest and best country papers that conies tp our . exchange table is the Charles City Intelligencer. It is an all home print, paper, something after the style of the Algona REPUBLICAN of the near future. We are beginning to think that it pays a newspaper to give the people a good tiling. Subscribers are coming in already on our promise to run the '•Bill Nye" letters after the REPUBLICAN becomes an all home print paper. There is money in small fruits. W. C. Hart reports the sale of $150 worth of raspberries from an acre and a quarter of bushes. This is his receipts after allowing the retail merchant a commission of two cents per quart for selling them. It is said that a Webster City genius lias invented a pipe and cigar holder which removes the nicotine from the smoke and deposits it in a little viol. 'This invention will enable the young man to smoke his first cigar without getting sick. A. Hough is at present on the road for the general commission firm of S. T. Fish & Co., of Chicago, buying hay, grain and field seeds. He will stay with them till the 15th of September when his son, Will, will take the position. His headquarters are at Algona. Mrs. B. F. Reed and daughter, Ruth, accompanied by her mother, Mrs. Dri Hudson, start for New York City Monday, to bo absent about a month. They will visit, while there, with Mrs. Hudson's brother, Mr. J. N. Ilallock, editor and publisher of the Christian at Work. Tom Henderson reports that he drove the last nail on the Blackford bridges yesterday afternoon and that the bridges and grades are now all right for travel. This will be welcome news to the farmers west of town who have been shut out of that road for the past six weeks. Algona lias a child of promise in little Lulu Bircher. Lulu will be four years old in February next but can now repeat from memory the third and fourth chapters of Matthew, and perform feats of memory iu the spelling of hard words, that are truly remarkable. Iluuibohl Independent: Wo- are able to congratulate the REPUBLICAN on the acquisition to its force of so valuable an assistant as Milt Ilolla- baugh. Milt was one time a manipulator of types on the Independent and we can testify that lie is gilt edged in all respects. The record for time across the Atlantic has again been broken. Last Wednesday the steamer Teutonic came up to her dock in New York City, having crossed the ocean in five days, sixteen hours and thirty-seven minutes, breaking the record of the Majestic by one hour and thirty-seven minutes. The following were elected as new officers of the official board of the M. E. church at a recent meeting. District Steward, Dr. Jas. Barr, Recording Steward, E. J. Gilmore. Gardner Cowles was elected delegate to the electoral conference which convenes at Fort Dodge Friday, Sept. 18. A pension that comesiu time to beap- preciated has been lately granted to Mrs. Mary M. Warner, of Plum Creek. Mrs. Warner has seen 80 years of life and can now spend her days in ease and comfort. The pension is paid on account of a son who died in 1863 and dates back to that time. She now receives $12 per month. The Iowa Falls Sentinel dashed it up last week to a certain quack doctor by the name of Jackson, who has recently been humbugging the town and writing improper letters to certain young ladies. We like to see a newspaper with sand enough to read the riot act occasionally to the travelling patent medicine man. The Courier advises the Democratic township Chairmen to "sec to it" that township caucuses are called. What kind of a set of township chairmen have the Democrats got anyway that they, need to be posted in that way by the Courier? The Courier seems to presume that they don't know enough to call a caucus when the time comes. songs, recitations and select readings. The Temttle is under the suoerinteM- etice of Mrs, Frank Lull, we cannot too highlV i'ecoMtnend to all parties the advisability of encouraging their children to join this Temple and take the pledge, J. A, Hamilton is away in "Wisconsin this week, buying and loading lumber. He will be home the first of the month, when Mr. Wheeler will take the road as salesman, Mr. Wheeler says he can sell all the lumber that Mr. Hamilton can buy and he is just the hustler to do It too. While inside the main circus tent Friday, B. W. Haggard was stricken down with an affliction of the heart. He was taken outside and it was nearly an hour before he was conscious of what was passing around him. As soon as possible lie was carried home and is now doing as well as could be expected. The Courier says "that Charley Dunn sold 1800 bushels of corn for $900 He is, perhaps, the greatest corn' grower in the northern part of the state. He always raises immense crops of corn." Very well, Mr. Courier, according to the Democratic governor of Iowa, how much money has Mr. Dunn lost on that pile of corn? Lu Verne News: Senator Chubb came down on Wednesday to see about matters connected with the creamery at this place. Between his steers up in the north end of the county and his milking operations down this way, Charley is kept pretty busy. But with George Hanna to help milk, and the News to keep off the flies he will get there just the same. The Republicans of the first ward met in the "Reed building last Thursday evening and completed the organization of a Republican club. The officers are Eugene Tellier, Pros.; A. A. Brunson, Sec. and Treas. The president and secretary, together with Col. Spencer, form the executive committee. The meeting adjourned to meet at the call of the president. "Mother's Jewels" is the name of a little band of children in the M. E. church, none of whom ar« over six years of age. The Algona branch comprises 38 members and the past year these little workers have saved pennies to the amount of $11.28, a showing that will compare more than favorably with any organization of larger people. The money raised by these little bands goes toward .the support of a home for orphaned children, located at York, Nebraska. Mr. David Shellenberger, of Iloro- boldt, whose death was reported a week ago Sunday, but which report proved to be false, died on Saturday, the loth. Summing up his life the Kosmos says: He was the youngest of a family of ten and his death takes away the last member. The death of his wife occurred about a year ago. Father Shellenberger has lived a long and busy life and through it all he has made for himself and family a name respected by all. In- his dealings be was strictly honest,, was a kind father and a good neighbor and he will be greatly missed by his church and the town. Lu Verne-News: During the storm last Thursday, lightning struck the house of J. B. Reed up at Morton siding. The hired man, who had been sitting in a chair but an instant before the crash came, had stepped to the door to discharge a mouthful of tobacco juice and was on his way back to his seat when the bolt fell, shattering the sash and breaking the glass of the window, against which he had been leaning only a moment before. Mr. Reed and Jiis man were both severely shocked, but soon recovered. It was a, close-call. It takes a travelling uw*ft to tell stories. One ol ! those fellows who visits Algona occasionally, tells the following, and vouches for its truth. In a certain town in Iowa a man entered a grocery store-and inquired the price of sugar. The merchant answered that sugar was 20, 21 and 22 pounds for a dollar. The man studied a minute and then ordered 14 pounds of sugar for a dollar. In surprise the merchant asked why 14 pounds, and the man said if Ms wife found ho could get 20 pounds of sugar for a dollar she would make him vote the Republican ticket and he was going to vote the Democratic ticket anyway, even if he had to buy sugar at the old figures. From a recent letter from Mrs. Lucy Bigelow, written to her daughter in Algona, we extract the following: "San Diego is really a fine place, with its delightful sea breezes and comparatively even temperature. The heat never goes to exceed 70 degrees. The city is a complete garden of Eden, with all the choice flowers one can imagine growing in richest profusion. Roses and geraniums as high as the eaves, porches completely covered and shut in by them und the fragrance perfectly enchanting. One can scarcely imagine the beauty of all these. Trees of luxuriant foliage tower toward the sky, among them the graceful fan palm, the bananna, which ie a fine specfrnan of a tropical tree, the orange and lemon, and the date palm which rivals all its neighbors in height and splendor. And then to see all the fruits, which we see in the eastern market in the dried state, fresh gathered from the trees is truly a grand sight. I saw three figs growing on a little tree not more than 15 inches high a mere slip put in the ground only last spring. After seeing the city we went down to the beach and watched the bathers then took a steamer and went out about a mile to an island, where we watched the tide come in. Returning from the island we visited the museum. We spent two days and a half in sight seeing and then returned overland to San Jacinto." THE ClttCUS. A tfi-Atty floort Show «. Mar* , Mote Stickers mid Mofe toUgorglne, The Show last Saturday was not disappointing. The circus performance in the main was very good and they carried a very fair menagerie. Ifc was the best show that has visited Algona in a long time, which, however IS not saying very much for the outfit, the management of the show understands how to do the white thing by the newspaper men which la more than we can say for any other circus that has visited Algona in recent years. So much for the circus proper, and the way we were treated, While, the show was going on in the big tent a number of gamblers Who travel with the circus and declare a regular dividend of the spoils with Wallace Bros., were working their various games under cover of the canvas of the. side show tent. It would seem that after Mr. King's experience with Judge Spencer the boys would have sense enough not to risk their money on another man's game, but it is not so. The gamblers bagged upwards of a thousand dollars during the day, and got away with all but $237.00, which they were persuaded by the County Attorney to disgorge. Mr. A. B. Carter, who is old enough to be a grand father and ought to know better, was siezed with a desire to get something for nothing and lost $95.00 on the shell game. lie showed something of a reluctance about turning over the money and was promptly thumped over the head and kicked out of the tent. Will Naudain, the dray man, lost $127 on the "board of .trade" game. He started out with a dollar and doubled his money seven times on the theory that he would eventually win. He "eventually" lost. Mr. Carter .brought the tale of how he was taken in to the County Attorney, who, in company with Geo. E. Clarke and Sheriff Stephens, visited the manager of the circus—a fellow who styles himself Col. Boynton—who was superintending the .gambling tent. Col. Boynton was formerly the manager of Weklen's circus, which was taken possession of by Mr. Clarke several years ago m satisfaction of a claim that somebody else had upon it—readers of the REPUBLIC AN will remember the circumstance. The Colonel had a very distinct recollection of Mr. Clarke and he-favored every proposition made with his most distinguished consideration. Mr. Clarke secured the return of the money lost by Cantev and Naudain, besides $15.00 belonging to Ed Hackman and $10.00 belonging to an old man by the name of Anderson, amounting in all to $237.00. We condemn the business of the gambler us strongly as anyone but have no 1 sympathy with the man who allows Maiself to be taken in. Railroad Jack. Miss Estella L. Brooks goes to Iowa Falls this week where she intends to attend the college, waking her home while there with her sister, Mrs. Chas, Mathers. She will only remain at Iowa Falls a couple of months, having to return at that time to take charge of her old school near West Bend. The Juvenile Temple gave an open meeting entertainment at the M. E. church Sunday afternoon. It was an exceptionally good one and was conducted throughout by the children.One of the best things on the program was a temperance essay by Alice Blackf ord. For a little girl it showed marked excellence.

Get your vteitjjnf Qfcrds at th» RgPUBUGAN 0™°®' One ot the most eccentric individuals that it has ever been our prralege to interview, came into the REPUBLICAN office last Monday evening and inquired for the editor. As soon us we showed up he introduced himself as "RailroailJaok," a fellow literary man who was traveling the country and writing up his experiences for a book, which he expected to have published soon. He proceeded to undo a very dirty looking .hammock in which he explained that he- had traveled over 50,000 miles. lie attaches his hammock beneath the raar trucks of the- rear sleeper of a passenger train and gets a maximum of ride at a minimum af expense and inconvenience. The queer tiling about it all is that he is a bright young man of good education as evidenced by his-, language. He claims to be a graduat& of a Normal School some place in Indiana and an old time peda; gogue in a country school. He- makes his present headquarters at Bay City, Mich. He kindly furnished a little article for the HKPUUMCAN, to which we give spaee as wo had agreed to publish a poem for Mr. Campbell and wished to treat all the literary fraternity alike. Editor .Republican: To him. who judges upon the particular line of work in which a stranger arriving in town is engaged by appearances only, a word by way of suggestion is offered. Though '-God moves in a mysterious way His wonders to perform," He has not said that certain of his humble creatures shall ever be deprived of such privileges. In traveling from place to place in the disguise of a chimney sweep or possibly something less.worthy of our sympathy, a tramp, I do so to obtain certain information not to be gotten were I clad in a Prince Albert suit and a high collar. By means of a hammock peculiarly arranged to fit under a passenger train, I manage to enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness at "reduced rates." To attempt within the limits of a single article a description of my hammock and its modus operand!, is foriegu to my purpose. Sufficient only is given to enable the reader to understand where I ride an4 why I occupy this position. BAILROAP JACK. two yu&Wi Tliftre AW set eta! of m old settles who act only did the best we fofild Ifl .Working out taxes; btife I«$ donated many a day's labor and ttj & dollat to matte passable toads w we wanted td go", The sorest thiftf we have met is tliat a few men have cqtfle into onr midst that were so located as to receive a great deal more benefit from such enterprises thati we did and yet would hot help any, We enhanced the value of theii' Hinds greatly by building towns close to them; and we drainecf their lands by letting the water out alotig the road; and instead of helping they would have objected if they could, claiming that they wanted the Water. , The main difficulty is to get the best practical men for road supervisors- men who will plan and lay out the work for the best advantage. There is such p'oor use made of all the land laid out for roads and the labor put on them. Our roads are laid out sixty-six feet wide and only about one-third of this width is made use of where most needed. •A narrow grade is generally started, in the middle of the road with a deep ditch close to it on either side, so that if a man cqmes along With a heavy load on that grade and he finds that he could get along better on the original sod, he cannot get on to it on account of the ditches. Ordinarily the sod, even with water over it, is safer than most of the grades we have. Why not make use of the sixty-six feet as follows: Commence a grade in the middle of the road, taking a fill from a ditch made only on one side of the road at first and that ditch placed as near the limit of that sixty-six foot road as practicable for fences if there are any. The ditch should be made on the side of the road where it is easiest to find an outlet for the water from off it. If legislation should be necessary to permit the road supervisor to go into adjoining lands and make outlets for the water it should be had. Where open ditches would be proved to be too much in the way and too much damage to the owner of the land, large tile should be used and paid for out of the roadfund. If laws would at least compel men to pay for part of the benefit derived from the draining done on their land they should be had, but I suppose a man cannot be compelled to have his land drained and has a right to leave ponds on it that are an injury and a nuisance to the public if lie wants to. By this plan people could get off the grade and into it again at pleasure, and an unfinished grade would not make the roadi impassable. The road would be much better in the winter with room for a track between the grade and ditch. Where ditches are dug across the soad they should be fixed with culverts or bridges the whole width of the passable road. This plan would give us three or four wagon roads where we Mve but one now. It is obvious that on tho above plan lowering the water would be worth infinitely more than- raising a narrow grade the same height the water is lowered. Townships or districts should be provided with wheeled scrapers so as to bring dirt from higher points to those where it is most needed when too wet to take fillings from the sides, and enough of them should be used on a job to pay to have a snatch team standing help to load and then they would be no harder oh'" teams than other scrapers, nor hardly as liard. How are we to bring abo«t these needed improvements? First, by discussing the subject in the farm'papers, as is now being donu-in tho homestead./' ifiu./-. Second, discussing in Alii an PC rneelpl ings and farm institutes, and, third,-0' meet at meetings of the township trustees and road supervisors, spring and fall, and discuss the subject there. If roads are made practically and right in some districts and townships, other farmers • will soon notice them and follow. Good road work is easily noticed by the best men. Peuhaps better pay for road supervisors would induce better men to take the sfilce, but the subject should be discussed and farmers educated to it first. It would be easy to get help irom the towns.
