He is more enthuiastic than ever on the subject of bicycling. The Courier reports a list of about a dozen democrats from Kossuth county whe will attend the convention in Chicago next week. Bancroft has decided to celebrate the Fourth of July. Algona will not celebrate this year, at least we have as yet heard no talk of a celebration. LaAvyer Quarton expects a brother from the southern part of the state to enter his law office in a few weeks and take a three years course in Blackstone. Ben. Winkie has been prominent on our streets, of late with his new Studebaker sprinkler. It is a beauty and will keep the dust down if anything will Mrs. A. D.

Fred Foster, the popular Thorington street barber, has received a curiosity in the shape of a horned toad, from a friend in California. It can be seen by visiting his shop. The motto of the High school—"A Rift in the Cloud"—has excellent application to the splendid corn weather we are now having after a spring of almost unbroken rainy weather. A matter of general remark was the very tasteful manner in which the Congregational church was decorated for commencement'last Friday evening. The church was never decorated in a finer manner. Emmetsburg has voted a franchise for electric lights—that's what Algona ought to do. If some electric light man will come this way and talk business he may stand a chance of doing something. There is a growing feeling that Algona ought to have electric lights. Bradley & Nicoulin's men at Lake Mills report the sale of twenty spring wagons last week,—a good business for one town and one week. They are unable to manufacture spring wagons fast enough this year to supply the demand. Licensed to marry; Gerhardt Punke and Margaret Dorweiler, Mary Miller and Jos.

That may be a little overdrawn but the threatenings and slaughter that are breathed out against him are out of all proportion to the actual number of lickings he actually receives. Frank Jenkinson, that prosperous farmer living north of town, talking THE NINTH COMMENCEMENT. The CI«*s of '1)2 Is Graduated from the High School—Kxerf,lKc« of Graduation. The High School commencement exercises were held in the Congregational church last Friday evening and passed off very pleasantly—each member of the class performing his part in a very creditable manner. If disposed to be critical, the only thing the REPUBLICAN would offer is that the exercises were too long. The audience was|tired before the end of the program was reached. The orations, were without exception of marked excellence and showed careful preparation. After prayer by Rev. Davidson and a trio by the High School girls the program on the part of the class was opened with the salutatory address by Elbert Tuttle. The first oration was by Guy Tayior and his subject was "Reciprocity." His discussion of the subject showed a careful study of Mr. Elaine's great idea for the enlargement of our foreign trade. It is one of the hopeful signs of the day that our young men evince an interest in economical questions. There is a difference between voting for a principal because your ancestors voted for it, and voting for the same principle as the result of intelligent investigation. "Napoleon" was the subject of Miss Lillian Howard's oration. The oration was well written and well delivered. Miss Myrta Putsch followed with a very excellent oration, which showed a careful study in preparation. "Literature—Typical of Character of Author," was the subject of her oration. Following Miss Putsch upon the program was a chorus of pupils from the grammar grades. The result of Miss Fahnestock's training was apparent. The next oration was by Elbert Tuttle; subject: "Plants—Their Construction and Uses." Thelastora- tion, and the valedictory, was by Frank Tellier. "The Solar System" was the subject of his oration. Both Mr. Tuttle and Mr. Tellier showed unusual research along the lines of their respective subjects, for high school pupils. The diplomas were then presented by Dr. Barr, as President of the Board of Education. After the presentation of diplomas Mrs. M. H. Dunham, of Burlington, was introduced to give the class address. Mrs. Dunham is president of the Iowa Frances E. Willard faction of the W. C. T. U., and a woman suffrage enthusiast. She had expected to deliver a lecture in Algona Friday evening, but owing to a conflict Avith the commencement exercises she was tendered an invitation to make the address to the graduating class. Considering the occasion, and the very late hour of the evening,, her lecture of some thirty minutes on the suffrage question was a little out of place. The exercisas were closed with a trio by the high school girls—"Good Night." Measured by the standard of other high school commencements, the exercises on the part of the graduates were of exceptional excellence, and gave evidence of a scholarship that is a credit to Prof. Dixson and the Algona High School. THANKS. The class of '92 desire to publicaly express their appreciation of the kind efforts of all who rendered assistance at their exercises last Friday evening, and especially those of Mr. Leo Peug- net who by his artistic skill and energy succeeded in producing the pleasant effect in the decorations. Some one asked Ase Brunson up at Minneapolis when he expected to get back to Algono. Our County clerk replied that be intended to remain in Minneapolis until Jas. G. Elaine was nominated. Mr. and Mrs. Danson have deferred their trip to Spokane for a few days on account of a press of business in Mr. Banson's office. They will probably leave some time next week and will be absent about six weeks. Laurens Times: The Algona Courier presents the name of J. J. Wilson as a democratic candidate for congress. If it wasn't that John is opposed to free silver and a prohibitionist he would stand a very good show. We would like to hear his exact position. • Ben Winkie complains that his street sprinkler is not a paying institution. Some of the leading merchants up on State street have refused to contribute anything to pay for the oenefits of keeping the dust down. We should think that every merchant in town would be glad to pay liberally to be rid of the dust nuisance. returned Monday afternoon. He leave for Spokane ijest week. will about crops yesterday, said that while, perhaps, things were not as far along as they were last year, they would be by the Fourth, if the present weather continued. He says he »ever saw crops grow faster than they h$ye for the past The heavy storm of Monday evening took on a cyclonic character in some parts of the country. Galva, Illinois was torn to pieces and a large number of people killed. The big wigwam for the democratic convention at Chicago was unroofed and seriously damaged. Seven people were killed in Chicago. Destructive effects are also reported from southwestern Iowa. We were shown samples the other day of some of photographer Peterson's work made by the isocbromatie process. It is superior to anything that we have ever seen in many respects. If you want photographs and want tliem made by the latest and most improved process call on Peterson before you negative tftk$ft, Miss J-AH. Lantrv, the popular operator of the Western Union's city office, is entitled to special thanks for supplying the public with information of the progress of the Minneapolis Convention. Her bulletin board was surrounded by an eager crowd Friday afternoon, and the nomination of Harrison was known in Algona almost as soon as made. The twelve pound brass howitzer for the G. A. R. Post, secured through the kindness of Congressman Dolliver. arrived Monday morning and was housed temporarily in Henry Mason's barn. It is a fine gun and capable of making a large sized noise. Algona is under special obligations to Mr. Dolliver for securing the loan of the gun. The people of north Algona, up about the Free Methodist church, are painting things up to the very great improvement of that part of town. We might mention a dozen houses that have been freshly painted. The example might well be followed by other quarters of the city. Paint is pretty cheap and it helps the appearance of some things wonderfully. The family of Lars Rurstrum, in the northeast part of town, has been quarantined on account of what is pronounced to be diphtheria. There is only one case in the family, that of a little girl and it is not at all serious. There is no occasion for alarm about the spread of the disease, as all proper precautions have been taken. It is well, however, to be forearmed against such a disease, and parents should remember there is diphtheria in town. The Normal Summer School will meet in the public school building, the repairs and refitting of the Normal building not being completed. Those entering will assemble in the high school next Monday at 9 a. m. The session promises to be a very successful one and will be well attended by teachers and by others who are in need of reviews of the common branches. The amusing incident of yesterday evening was a foot race between Doc Leatherman and "Willie" Green. Green is a traveling man who makes Algona every few weeks. He is about "five feet one way and three feet the other and weighs three hundred pounds." The race was for a stake of $2,00 and was won by Leatherman. When outsiders try to do up Algona men they usually get left. W. B. Quarton, who was appointed one of the examiners of the Iowa State University Law Class of '92 returned from Iowa city Saturday. He says the School graduated a class of seventy lawyers, who passed a very rigid examination, both written and verbal. The Board of Examiners consisted of sixteen of the best lawyers in Iowa, and Quart has reason to feel proud of the honor of being one of them. Joslyn, Brunson and Sessions created considerable enthusiasm at the West Hotel in Minneapolis Thursday morning, by singing their last fall's campaign song of "Uncle Sam is doing business at the same old stand." They got around in front of the Ohio headquarters to sing the "McKinley and protection are sure to win the day" part of it, and the Ohio boys gave them quite an ovation. The Board of Supervisors ruled the REPUBLICAN out and awarded the publication of the election law to the Upper Des Moines, upon the grounds that the editor of the REPUBLICAN was not present to put in a bid for the job of publishing the law. The editor of the REPUBLICAN was away at Minneapolis and was not informed that the papers would bid on the job. The law left the award of the publication of the law at the discretion of the Board of Supervisors and fixed the amount of the compensation. It is a small matter, anyway. The REPUBLICAN will publish the law just the same for the information of its readers. The Courier last week gave its readers the following elaborate description of the trap in use in making the excavation for the opera house. We reproduce it for our readers who are not acquainted with the intricacies in the construction of a dump: "Mr. Call had a hole scooped out in the middle of the ground, near the front, and had posts set on the sides wide enough for a wagon to pass through. He then planked the thing overhead, leaving an opening in the center. The wagons are run under this platform, and the teams that draw the scrapers are driven upon the platform and the scrapers dumped in the hole so as to fill the wagons below." Sid. Cotterell met with quite a severe accident, as he was coming down from Burt last Friday. He had got into the caboose of a freight train and was waiting for the enjine to finish switching before starting for Algona. Sid got up to get a better view of his workmen who were painting on a building near by, when the engine coming suddenly in contact with the caboose threw him off his feet, the back part of his head striking the stove, inflicting quite a serious wound, and causing insensibility. The conductor said the sharp collision was due to a green brakeman. It is lik§ly that Sid will sue the company for damages. Teachers Mooting.

This has been a very favorable week for farm operations, and for all crops. The daily average temperature was about 3 degrees above normal, with more than the usual amount of sunshine; and the rainfall was generally sufficient to keep the soil in good condition for vegetation. Corn planting is nearly completed, and cultivation is in progress. The stand is about as good as in ordinary seasons, and not more than the usual amount of replanting is necessitated because of poor seed and unseasonable weather. The acreage is materially decreased, but with seasonable weather a fair crop may be produced. Small grain, meadows and pastures are doing well. Late reports received by telegraph before going to press indicate that the showers on Monday were well distributed, doing much good in preventing baking of the soil. Frank Bros'. Old Stand. We can only remain at the old stand short time and not having any location in view we will offer every thing in the house at a very low figure. You can save from $2.00 to $5.00 on a suit by purchasing while we remain here. All other goods in proportion. Call and see us at the old stand. H. BALCOM. City Delivery. I will run two delivery wagons hereafter, and will be prepared to attend to customers in all parts of the city. Leave all orders at the Adams Express office. 33tf F. W. LONOLET. Constable Tellier is mad ami says that he will bring suit against the loimty to recover his fees for searching the Alderman premises last winter. The board of supervisors for some reason best known to themselves refused to allow them. They also refused to allow deputy sheriff Mclnroe'a fees in the same case. In defense of their action the board present the reason that they don't propose to allow anyone fees for arresting an "innocent man." It is a funny idea that has got into the caps of the board of supervisors. When the proper papers are placed in the hands of a properly constituted officer of the law it would seem according to the poor judgement of the REPUBLICAN that it is his duty to go ahead and serve them without stopping to set himself up as a court of justice to determine whether the party is innocent or guilty of the charges, made against him. It is a new idea that an officer is not to have his fees for serving papers making arrests and so on, if the grand juries etc. should determine that the man was not guilty and that this "health restorer" was not intoxicating, notwithstanding the the fact that a chemical analysis showed it to contain aleohol in sufficient quantity to intoxicate. Tellier says that he proposes to find out if there is a special law depriving an officer of his ees for searching the establishment of a bootlegger.
