The temperance massmeeting of last Thursday and Friday was not largely attended by delegates from outside towns owing in all probability t6 the forbidding state of the weather. About thirty I. O. G. T. delegates in .all 'Were present. Among those prominent in temperance work from abroad wereB. F. Wright, of Charles City, «ditor of the Advocate, Mrs. Hinman President of the State W. C. T. U., Mrs. Schultz, member of the I. O. G. T. executive committee and Miss •Gertie Nurse, district lecturer. The program was carried out almost to the letter as advertised in the REPUBLICAN. The various meetings of the session were presided over by J. S. Paine, of Eagle Grove, District Chief Templar, and Mrs. T. II. Conner, of Algona, president of the local W. C. T. U. The occasion is memorable as the first instance in Iowa where the W. C. T. U., and I. O. G. T. ever united in a joint meeting for the promotion of temperance. The Gold medal contest took place in the Congregational church. The program was as follows: Geo. Hamilton, Algoua—W. C. T. U. Howard Hulsa, Webster City—The Tower of Shame. Erma Barslou, Bancroft—The Rum Curse. Ida Campbell, Charles City—A Voice from the Poor House. Jessie McKee, Wekster City—Young America'* War Cry. Erma C Clarke, Algona—A Voice from the Poor House. The Judges were M. J. Hamilton, a commission merchant of Chicago and a friend of Col. Spencers' who happened to be in town for the evening, Mrs. Jennie M. Ayers, of Emmetsburg and W. S. Fitkins, also of Emmetsburg. The first place was awarded to Miss Erma Clark, while Miss Erma Barslou, of Bancroft, and Miss Ida Campbell, of Charles City, tied for second place. The decision of the judges gave general satisfacrion to the audience. The medal was presented by Mrs. Hinman with a very appropriate address. Mrs. Shultz and Mrs. Nurse remained until Tuesday morning and organized an I. O. G. T. Lodge.

Winter of Bancroft were penned io at Sheldon by the floods for two days last week. They had started for Sioux City to attend the reunion of the twelfth Iowa, and had gone as far as Sheldon when the flood came. There were washouts east, west, north, and south of them. After .waiting two days they managed to get back home by way of Cherokee and Webster City.

Rolfe Reveille:—The daily papers have much to gay aboutltbe impassable condition of tbs roads to Pocahontas. The town is getting considerable of unfavorable advertising as well as the County. The fact is the county of Pocahontas i« no worse off than many other counties, but the exceedingly bad condition of the roads compared with the usually good condition make it unpleasant for all. Patience and sunshine will soon cause us to smile. One Dr. Barnes of Rolfe assaulted Editor Bruoe, of the Reveille, with a clup last week and as a result has been bound over to the grand jury in the sum of $500. It seems that the Reveille has incurred the displeasure of the thug and bum element of Rolfeby its outspoken and fearless position against the lawless and vicious element of the town. An editor is expected to denounce all such things but he does it at the peril of getting a thumping. It takes eand to be an editor sometimes. Elmer Slagle had a narrow escape from an experience with a railroad wreck and train robbers last Saturday night, almost within the suburbs of Des Moines. At about 11:25 a track walker discovered some men piling ties upon the track. He was discovered by the men and fired upon, one of the bullets shattering bis lantern to pieces. The plucky fellow secured another Ian- tern and returned just in time to signal Elmer's train, which was running at the high rate of 50 miles an hour. The dressed by both Mrs. Shultz and Mrs. 3Turse. Mrs. Shultz is a native of Norway and has traveled extensively in European countries. She has a quaint style of speaking, and her address was full of interesting information. ' A meeting was held at the Methodist church Monday evening and the organization of a Good Templars Lodge effected, with the following officers: C. T,—Emily Reeve. V. T.—Mr. Fern. Dep.— D. B. Avey. Chap.—Mrs. Hough. Sec.—Belle Tellier. F. S.—Henry Carpenter. Treas.—Ell Dalton. P. C. T.—Mrs. Fern. M.—James Randall. D. M.—Ella Reeve. G.—Leon McCall. Sen-—Frank Howard. A. Sec.—Henry Warner. S. J. T.—Mrs. Lull. The lodge starts out in flourishing condition with twenty one Charter members. Meetings will be held at the M. E. Church every Friday evening. Court was. adjourned last Saturday until the first week in June to give the farmer jurymen an opportunity to make the most of the fine weather. Very little was done and no cases of public interest were heard. Beverly Watkins the defendent in the bigamy case, succeeded in securing a continuance until the next regular term ot'courtwhich will be in September. The REPUBLICAN'S libel suit was continued by mutual agreement. Judge Cook, one of the REPUBLICAN'S attorneys was prevented from reaching Algona by the washouts along the road. He left Primghar for Algona Tuesday night and did not arrive until Saturday. Dr. Hathaway and his crowd were also unable to reach Algona on account of the floods and washouts. It seems too bad that the case was forced to be continued by circumstances over which none of the parties interested had any control, just when Geo. W. Argo's back was well and in good shape for the trial. , *->••_ The libel suit of Dr. Hathaway vs. the ALGONA REPUBLICAN, which was to have come up at Algona this week, has been continued on account of the floods, which prevented the Sioux City parties to the suit from reaching Algona.—Sioux City Journal. The elements have combined with the elevator shafts to prevent the case from coming to a trial. And Capes, at i.or's We will soon be located one door east from Dr. G-arfield's office. Buy the Best! A Word of Thanks. Thanks are justly due those of our citizens who so kindly furnished entertainment for delegates and visitors at the convention; to our ministers who so ably assisted us in the' work, to the Choir for excellent music and to all those who by their presence and words of cheer and encouragement made the Convention a complete success. By order of the W. C. T. U. GETTING DESPERATE. The Crop Situation—Report of Weather Service for Past Week. Who Were The Parties? Some time ago parties from Algona came here and started a saloon, but it has been closed for several weeks until one day last week when they came back and opened up again, but we think it was not altogether enjoyable time to them as they went to every train, prepared to leave if they discovered any signs of danger to themselves, and finally the last one took leave Tuesday morning, and there was quite rejoicing in this town.—Emmetsburg Reporter.

It is thought that the attempted wreck was the work of Pea Koines crocks, DES MOINES, May 21.—Another cold and wet week, with heavy local rains and destructive floods, deepens the gloom of the crop situation. The daily average temperature was over 5 degrees below the normal, and on Friday snow flurries are reported from nearly all parts of the State. The heaviest rainfall occurred in the western, northwestern and north central districts, the following being some of the reported measurements: Cherokee, 4.86 inches; Monona, 4.10; Buena Vista, 8.86; Palo Alto, 3.95; Lyon, 3.92; Omaha, 3.66; Wright, 3.25; Adams 8.18; Calhoun, 2.55; Pottawattamie, 2.50; Marshal, 2.60; Story, 2.50; There were less than two full days of sunshine during the week. But little planting or other field work has been possible. Wheat and oats on up lands look fairly well; on all low lands grain crops are drowned out or turning yellow. At the close of this week of disasters, some faint rainbow tints appear on the breaking clouds, and hope rises to renew the struggle against grim despair. Algoua District Camp Meeting. The Algona District Camp-meeting will be held at Belmond, Aug. 1—8 '92. A beautiful grove of natural timber has been secured.
