There will be services at the Episcopal church next Sunday morning and evening. The harvest home festival of the Baptist Sunday school has been postponed until Sunday, October 4th.

Prank Gilmore and wife arrived home from Minneapolis yesterday morning, where they went something over a week ago to attend the exposition and visit relatives. Indications seem good for a large crowd at the fair and a good exhibit. We reserve full particulars for our special daily editions issued Thursday and Friday mornings of this week. Major McKinley, of Ohio, the famous author of the McKinley bill, will be at Ottumwa during the Coal Palace festival. The combined attraction of the Don't miss the only opportunity of hearing Mr. Dolliver during this campaign. Arrangements have been made to have Mr. Dolliver deliver a short address on the Fair Grounds, Friday afternoon. It will be a non-political speech and appropriate to the occasion. There will be a grand fair dance at the rink tomorrow evening. Will Hall went away last Thursday on a tour around the country settinR up monuments.

Sam Peterson and Christina IJeck, both of Plum Creek township, were married yesterday by Esq. Thompson. Mr. Taylor, on the Ingliam farm west of town, reports a Held of corn that will yield nearly ninety bushels to the acre. Corn is king. Don't fail to hear Congressman Dol- Coal Palace and Major McKinley ought to draw enormous crowds to Ottumwa. The Upper Bes Moines of last week contained not one single Hue of news from the county or surrounding towns. It seems to be the theory of our contemporary that the less attention it gives its country patronage the better. That is not our theory of running a newspaper. Grandpa Bacon, of Wesley, was a caller at the lliiU'UBUUAX ollice last Saturday. lie was on his way home to Wesley from a visit to his daughter in Dakota. He is as hale and hearty as ever and still bears the palm for being the best preserved man for his age in this part of Iowa. If Col. Clarke fired such a heavy gun last Thursday night as, the Courier would have its readers believe, why don't our Des Moines "innards 1 ' contemporary print the speech i'or the benefit of such of its readers as were unable to be present and take in the speech. It was a great argument to show that the Democratic position on the whiskey question is all right. As per announcement llev. Davidson, of the Congregational church, delivered a sermon last Sunday evening upon the subject ''The Principle of Prohibition Biblical." His handling of the subject was able and free from all political bias. He showed very conclusively that the Bible taught the absolute prohibition of evil 1 . It was a strong sermon and delivered 1 with llev. Davidson's usual impres- tive earnestness. It has been a matter of no little speculation for a long time as to who was in the field for the nomination for Sheriff on the Democratic ticket. Mr. A. C. Scott of the Fourth Ward announces his candidacy for the Democratic nomination in this issue. Our Democratic brethern might make a Friday mornings of this week. The daily will contain full programs of the races etc., every thing of interest in relation to the fair. Nearly all of the advertising space has been taken but we can accommodate several more advertisers. One thousand copiesjwill be liver's speech at Friday evening. the Wigwam next Dolliver's speeches worse break than to nominate Mr. Scott. The fact that he lives in the Fourth AVard ought to give his name some prestige in the estimation of his party. A sample of consistency porary ago -A contem- made the several weeks statement that the change to an all home print paper was published of each issue. The Republicans of the Fourth ward met in caucus at the court bouse hall Monday evening and selected delegates to the county convention to be held Oct 2nd. The caucus was soon over but it was very interesting while it lasted. The result being the selection of a Stephens delegation to the convention. Mr. Stephens was allowed to select his delegates. The hardwood lumber company are doing quite an extensive wholesale business. John Quackenbush, of Fort Dodge, a bridge contractor was in Algona last Saturday and ordered five car loads of bridge timber. When orders commence to come in like that it looks something like a wholesale business. Mr. AVheeler left last Monday on a business trip through northern AViscon- sin buying and selling lumber. The Democrats of this Senatorial district met in Convention at Emmetsburg yesterday and nominated a Dickinson County man by the name of C. C. Painter to run for State Senator against Senator Funk. AVe have never heard of Mr. Painter before, but the boys say he is a good man. It will take a mighty good man to beat Senator Funk. The Kossuth County delegation was present at the convention to a man. J. 11. Jones has arranged the farm machinery nt the wigwam for display and it is more than worth a walk to to the wigwam to see the result of his efforts. People attending the fair who are interested in seeing the best line of farm machinery, buggies, wagons etc. in Kosstith county should make it a point to visit the \vigwam before leaving town. Talking about the wigwam; don't forget that Dollive* 1s to speak there Friday evening. B. F. Heed announces in this issue that he is a candidate for County- Superintendent subject to the will of the Republican convention. Very little, if anything can be said against big potato, weight 2J pounds. Mr. S. B. Shadle will have to dig the rest of his patch. Robinson has some beautiful stoves that he is offering at very reasonable prices if you buy early. Read his advertisement. Go to Jirn Taylor's store and get a pair of those cheap pants, before the stock is sold out. A pair of all wool pants for $8.00 is a pretty big bargain. The place to go for a good meal or nights lodging is Hall's Hotel and Restaurant on State street. Get your meals there when you are attending the fair. Mrs. AV. L. AVolfe by request, will give one of her Select Readings next Tuesday evening, Sept. 29, in the Baptist church. Admission, 20c. Pupils of schools, lOc. The change of time on the C. & N. AV. Railroad brings us the Des Moines morning papers at 8 o'clock in the morning, making the best daily news service we have ever had. The Weather Crop Bulletin reports that the seven days of last week were the seven hottest days ever recorded in this latitude for the second week of September. The temperature averaged !) degrees above normal. Mr. J. AV. Palmer of AVcst Superior AVisconsin has a couple of trained moose on exhibition at the fairgrounds. He is training them to drive in harness and expects to beat the fastest time ever made by a trotting horse as soon as he has them thoroughly trained. Notice of a convention of the Farmers Alliance to be held Oct. 3rd at 2 p. in. is published this week. The We would call attention to the fact that we are located here permanently, for the manufacture and sale of cemetery work in Marble. Granite and Stone. We now have and intend to keep iu stock a fair liuii of finished Monuments. Headstones, etc., and will guarantee all work to be equal to the best. We are the ouly manufacturers of cemetery work iu Kos- sutu Co.

When you hear a hog squeal it is a pretty good sign that he is either stuck or hungry or experiencing some sense of trouble with his "innards." Col. Henderson will be here in a few weeks, no preventing providence, and speak upon the issues of the campaign. The State Central Committee is very liberal with Algona this year. llemember the sale of the J. B. Jones herd of Short horn cattle if you wish to improve the quality of your herd with as line a strain of short horn blood as there is in the country. The sale takes place October 2nd. The Waterloo 'Reporter tells about some big threshing done down in that country. A man by the name of AVarnbotigh of east AVaterloo township threshed out nearly 1,000 bushels of oats in 3J hours besides setting the machine once. That is pretty fast threshiiig. Jas. A. Archabald brought into this office last Saturday three ears of corn, of the white dent variety, and fully ripe. He. laid them down with the remark: "J want you to send them to made with a view to "reduce expenses and get out a cheaper paper." A few days ago the editor of the paper referred to was prophecying on the street corners that the REPUUUUAX would return to patent insides within six months, on account of the extra expense of getting out an all home print paper. Messrs. O'Donoghen and Goranson of AVhitternore were in Algona last Saturday and called upon the RE- the manner in which Mr. Reed formerly discharged his duties in the official capacity of county superintendent. He is a competent, capable man and an PUHLICAN. Thep lished themselves *ov.

They have come to AVhittemore from Ogden, Iowa, where they were formerly located. AVhittemore has stood in need of a good photographer for a long time and we prophesy success for the gentlemen. Mr. and Mrs. AV. M. Starr, of Maxwell, spent a few days last week visiting his brother, M. Starr and family, of this place. They drove across the country • and were delightfully surprised with the prosperous condition of the country on the whole trip. They stopped near Irvington and from the buggy counted 100 stacks of aay. While such a sight was wonderful to them, it is a common one for our people. Go out on tlie prairies -of Kossuth anywhere an4 you can < experienced educator. In case he receives the nomination he will prove an element of strength to the Republican ticket. AVe have noticed that all the side shows, cane racks, wheels of fortune and museums of monstrosities that come to town always start up in business right beside the Courier office. Last Saturday was quite a day for at- meetingwill be held in the courthouse hall and will be addressed by state lecturer Sargent. The convention is called by the authority of the state alliance.

The llEt'UiiLiCAN scribe dropped into the clothing store of Chrischilles & Herbst last Monday and saw one of the largest and finest stocks of clothing- just being unpacked and placed upon the counter, that was ever brought into Algona. They have good goods and good bargains. AVe call attention to their ad in this issue. Our readers will find a full announcement elsewhere of a new serial story (The Mystery of a Hansom Cab) which will be commenced in the RKt't r ni,KJAN within the next few weeks. Every one has heard of the novel and many of our readers have doubtless read it. It is an intensely dramatic tale oi- Australian life, and created a great sensation in England where it was first put in print. The story is by Fergus AV. Hume. One of our worthy exchanges tells the following very pathetic story:— An editor died and slowly wended his way to where he supposed a warm reception awaited him. The devil saw him and said: "For many years tuou hast born the blame for the many errors the printers made in the paper. The paper has gone, alas for $1, and the $1 has often failed to come. The printers have deviled thee ou Saturday night when thou has not one cent to thy name. Men have taken the paper without paying for it, and then cursed Ihee for not getting out better. Thou hast been called a dead beat by passenger conductors when tbou hast shown thy annual pass to envious , gaze. AH these thou hast borne in silence. Thou cannot come in here." And he fired him. "Heaven is his home: and besides, if we 14 HOtTBSjro OHIOA&O, A New Time Card »Went Into Effect on the C, & N. W. Sniulay. The Bead Now Gives Us First Class Accommodations. The long talked of, much expected change in time and accommodations went into effect on the Northwestern, last Sunday and people are happy. In addition to the old mixed train which now goes north at 8:18 in the morning and south at 0:07 p. m. We have a straight passenger train which goes south at 2:37 p. in. and north at 8:84 p. m. The time between Chicago and Algona is now reduced from 17i hours to 14 hours and 18 minutes. Another feature of the change which will be very highly appreciated, is a through sleeper each way from Eagle Grove to Chicago. Passengers north on the mixed train in the morning due at 8:18 will' leave Chicago on the limited at (> p. m. the preceding evening and will leave DCS Moines at 2:80 a. in. the same morning. The mixed train south in the evening at 6:07 connects with the train for Des Moines at Eagle Grove which makes connection at Ames with the through Limited which arrives in Chicago at 8:15 a. m. the fallowing morning. The Des Moines train draws a sleeper from Eagle Groye to Ames wuichis attached to the limited for Chicago and gets its passengers to Des Moines at 11:30 p. in. Passengers arriving in Algona on the 3:<j4 train will leave Chicago on the Omaha Express at 10:40 the evening previous and Des Moines at 0:30 a. in. the same day. The passenger train going south at 2:37 will make Chicago at 7 a. m. and Des Moines'at 8:45 p. m. The only badfeattire about the change will be the poor connections at Eagle Grove with the western trains on the Ilawarden division. Passengers to Ilawarden will have to be satisfied with a freight train unless a change is made. With this one exception all connections at Eagle Grove are now better than formerly. The freight trains between Eagle Grove and Elmore will pass at Algona at 10 a. m. and not carry passengers as formerly. The change also results to the advantage of the western traffic, better connections being made with the Union Pacific by full three hours than formerly. Joseph and His Brethren. The Courier is perpetrating a ''Joseph" pun on the Ri'U>umj.cAX, and some of the papers seem to think that it is funny and are trying to do the same thing. Our journalistic brethren will remember how Joseph's brothers, being iilled with envy because he was smarter and better looking than they were and had a better stand-in with his people, combined to put it onto him and got left. They lied about him and thought they had him iixed for good when they made that bargain with the Ishmaelites; but Joseph eventually came out on top and got a corner on the entire grain business of all Egypt. His brethren when they felt the wolf of hunger at their "innards'' came around and begged on their knees for just a little corn. Out oi' the largeness of his heart he liberally supplied them and it has been the verdict of all subsequent generations that he was a better man than any one of his brethren. W. C. T. U. Owing to the County Pair the regular W. C. T. U. meeting will be held in the Heading room on Saturday afternoon at half past 2 o'oclock. A full attendance is desired. tractions over in that region.
