M. continues to run the Dr. Hathaway advertisement at half rates without a word of apology to its readers or advertisers. The U. D. M. cannot deny that it is an indecent advertisement; that it is being run at about one half the rates charged Algona advertisers and that its publication is a violation of section 533(5 oJ the Revised Statutes of Iowa. We condemn any editor who will throw his columns open to such an undesirable the Iowa National Guard have prepared an address to "the candidates for the legislature and other citizens" setting forth the needs of the state guard. An increased appropriation is asked for of the legislature,and it seems to us that sufficient reasons for the appropriation are set forth in the circular to warrant the legislature in allowing it. The guard is an honor to Iowa and the state can well afford the appropriation. •• A company of boys from the Children's Aid Society of New York will arrive in Algona, Friday^October 30th. It is desired to find home's for the boys and all parties who may wish to take one should communicate with James Taylor, D. D. Townsendor J. C. Blackford who are a committee to receive the names of applicants. There will be a meeting at the court house on Friday, October 80th, for the distribution of the boys. Among the interesting features of the next number of Harper's Weekly will be a full page illustration of the consecration of Bishop Phillips Brooks; also an article by Julian Ralph on the new government station for immigrants at Ellis Island, describing the manner in which the immigrants are received there, how they are cared for, and what disposition is linally made of them. Mr. Ralph's article will be copiously illustrated. Attention is called to the card of Mrs. N. E. Norwood, who operates the North Street Steam LauiMry, which appears in this paper. Mrs. Norwood THE COM FIELD SOLILOQUY. Methinks I am an object that would scare away the crows, For I make a tough appearance in these rough and ragged clothes. My pants are busted at the knees, they're tattered, patched and torn, But the man can't wear good clothes •who loses money raising corn. Methinks I have a granger mien and "ruined farmer" air, With the wind a blowin' hay seed thro' my long and shaggy hair. But I have this consolation as I act my humble part, Beneath these patched and tattered pants there beats an honest heart. I've left the C9urier sanctum, and I've gone to raising corn, I can't say that I like it, but I'm booming Dr. Bourne, And I've got to sing a doleful song and make a» awfuffuss „ About the farmers woes. Of course I would not care a cuss If not a farmer in Kossuth could make a single cent, Tlifc Sliced! To-morrow Night. Every Republican in Kossuth county who can arrange to do so should attend the Republican rally in this city to* morrow evening. Senator Allison la one of the ablest men on the stump in this campaign and all who are willing to hear both sides of the question discussed should hear him. It is to be the last big speech and big rally of one of the hottest campaigns ever fought out in Iowa. Excursion rates have been secured and special trains will be pro* vided for the accommodation of the people of surrounding towns who may wish to attend the speech. Everybody Come. To-day's Democratic Bally. It would be hard to find a stray Democrat running around on the prairies of Kossuth county this afternoon. They are all here to hear the governor. There are a great many Democrats in town, but not nearly so many as we had expected to see. The rally was advertised all over this part of Iowa and there are Democratic delegations here from a long distance. The crowd in town represents not the Democratic strength of Kossuth county, but the strength of several counties in this immediate section of the state. There are also a large number of Republicans in town who desire to see the Governor and hear what he has to say. The Governor arrived in town on the 8:80 train this morning and was driven immediately to the residence of C. L. Lund, where he was entertained until the time for the speech this afternoon. He leaves at 6:07 for Eagle Grove, where he is to speak this evening. M. F. Ilealy of Fort Dodge will follow the Governor with an address at the court house hall this evening. If they'll only vote for Dr.Bourne, why I will be content. I don't care for the farmer's rights as many have mistrusted Until its time to catch his vote and tell him how he's "busted." Of course its plain to every one who stops to think a minute, That Wheeler and Van Houten ure the people that tire in it. Unless we get the farmers' votes we're done for sure as thunder, All on account of Horace and his famous corn speech blunder. He might have known the farmers would see thro' his little game. And if he doesn't get there he will have himself to blame. He might have known it wouldn't work for democratic bait, To have the governor run around and lie about the state. We've got to work the farmers now and work ; ern day and night, For Smith and Reed and Stevens are away up out of sight, We've got to make the fellows think they've grown poor raising corn, Or the "Britt convention candidate will The Alg'ona "Prevaricator." From the Wesley Hepovter. In his sheet of last week Brother Hinchon, the cracked-brained editor of the Algona "prevaricator," with his usual disregard for the truth, takes the editor of this paper to task and maliciously misrepresents us in things that our many readers know not to be true. He says the Reporter of two weeks ago was not out until Wednesday of last week—five days late, when as a matter of fact the paper was printed on Friday afternoon—its usual time, and the Wesley list was iu the post office before 5 o'clock p. m. of thb same day. The Algona list left this office on Saturday. If it did not reach its destination at the usual time it was no fault of ours. The cause advanced by the Courier is no new attack upon this paper and originates from an item sent to that paper by its Prairie correspondent crediting us with having indulged in "something democratic" while attending a base ball game some time ago. It was an infamous lie, and can be so proven by democrats as well as republicans. If this kind of reading is all that Hinchon can furnish his readers we are sure the people do not want it.

Anderson attended the Corn Palace last week and on his way home stopped over in Sheldon for a few hours. While there he was so fortunate as to have an opportunity to hear Col. Henderson speak. In the course of his speech Mr. Henderson produced a letter from the Post Office Department denying the story that Mr. Van Houten was dismissed from the service of the government as postmaster on account of incompetency. Mr. Van Houten voluntarily resigned the office on account of business duties.

Cornelius Meyers brought something into the REPUBLICAN office last Friday that takes the shine off of everything in the potato line that we have ever seen—six good sized potatoes, any one of them large enough to make a good meal for a thoroughbred Irishman- grown fast to the seventh one, still larger than any one of the six, from which they stand out in all directions like the arms of a windmill. We have seen a full hill of imperfect and inferior potatoes grown together on the Siamese twins plan but have never seen anything before that would quite compare with Mr, Meyers curiosity when the quality of the potatoes are taken into consideration. of votes to spare.

The school seems to be in a very flourishing condition and an ample credit, as it ought to be, to the town. The outlook for over one hundred students this winter is exceedingly encouraging. An explanation of the success of the school this fall may be found in the fact that Prof. Wood, the original package dealer of last year, appeared in court last week and paid his flue of $300 and costs.

There was a motherly looking old lady Bitting in the midst of her bundles at the Grand Central depot yesterday, when A man with a grip sat down beside her and began to read a newspaper.
