M, Johnson Algona has a team that challenges any com petition. If any of our neighbors have horse shoe tossers let them make the fact known. Wo hear niflcent weather. It is beginning to get a little warmer during the middle of the day, but from 0 p. m. to about 0 a. m. it is always cool and pleasant. Susineas is very satisfactory and we ook for great things In tho future." Prof. Gilchrist has in mind a book on mental science as connected with teach- .ng, which he hopes to prepare for tho press this summer. He will probably ipend his vocation in Algona working on it. Ho says ho has promised to do it for several years, but thus far has never had the needed time. Ho is well able to treat this subject in a book of permanent value. Alex Younle, our old hotel man, has a long head. He has persuaded West Bend township in Palo Alto county to raise its road tax in money, and get its work done by contract. The township has better roads than over before, and money in the treasury. Kossuth county will never have any good roads till it adopts the same plan. Some township ought to lead out in this reform. Postponing action on the Long bridge resulted in good. Tho board again visited the spot, and in consequence decided to make tho road straight on tho section line, build a larger bridge, and make a good road. This will ono of tho most important thoroughfares in the county, and it is lucky that the bridge will bo put on tho line. The board are acting with very sound discretion. H. K. Hess, tho now proprietor of the Thorington, Is an expert electrician, and tho patentee of a storage battery which he intends to devote his time teas soon as he gets settled. He believes In the storage system, that is in putting electricity in batteries and using them In houses for lighting instead of getting the current direct from a dynamo. Ho thinks there is no doubt that it is cheaper and better. Ho says it is entirely likely ho may put an electric light in tho hotel, bringing stored electricity from Des MoTnos. Tho storage system is used in the Palmer house in Chicago. Secretary Post of the State Farmers alliance organized a lodge in Irvington last week, Mr. Hon, president; Chaa. Walker, vice president; C. B. Hutchins, secretary. Ho went east to attend a big meeting at Nashua, but is back in the county for further work. This Farmers' Alliance is a good thing. It it rumored that Bro Hinchon will so far overcome his prejudice against any but old settlers holding county office, as to consent to run for recorder this fall. This may he account for his energy in getting the republican names in the field can. Lightining struck W. F. Spoonor's house near Lu Verne last week. Tho building was only 10x20 feet, ant twelve people were sleeping in it, and none of them were seriously hurt. A hole four feet square was knocked out of the roof, and tho windows were broken out. A tramp called on Mrs. B. V, Scot) at Lu Verne for a dinner and did not get it, In leaving ho dropped his bundle and whan ho picked it MP< bo forgot to notice a wallet that had fallen out, Mrs. Scott found it with $8.25 in it, and fools satisfied because she told him to got out, Tho county convention comes nex Saturday, Delegates will be chosen to tho judicial, congressional, and state conventions.

All guesses to bo counted must bo in within the next days. Any one can put in as many [uesses as he has forms printed below. To furnish a basis for guessing wo give ;he returns of other counts. The census in 1885 was 0,000; in 1880, 0,178; in 1875, 8,765; in 1870, 3,351; in 1805, 094. Everybody guess on how much wo have grown tho past five yc— ^ T ~ Igures will bo counted which n the following blank: opinions of some influence, and as one of them remarked last week, it will bring vital issues into politics to replace tho more personal squabbling that now exists. We hone the farmers will co-operate with Mr. Post to put the county full of local organizations. A suggestion has been made which it worthy the consideration of the olc settlers who meet to day. It is thai they take steps to secure the old town hall building again, and make it a memorial building for tho uso of their association. Humboldt county is building a log cabin. But this county could secure no building so intimately associated with its early history, or so worthy of preservation as the old town half. There were many who were sorry that it was sold when It was for private use, and many would rejoice to see it aguiii n public building. Wo have no doubl that A. M. & G. M. Johnson would sell it at a reasonable figure, and tho couiv ty thenceforward would have a place to store Us relics, and the old settlers a homo associated with nearly every Important event of early history. Children's Day at tlio Oiurclies Sunday was observed at all tho churches as children's day, and pro- grammes by tho little folks were rendered. Beautiful floral decorations were part of each programme. An original part of tho Congregatlonalist exercises was a hymn written by Bev. Davidson which deserves a place in tho books, It was as follows: Hstore the evil days flraw nlgli, When hours am dull and plea»uren ny, Thy saoryicfl o( life and love Oder to hint who retgua ttbove, Qoa glvcth beauty to the flower, To every BOU! Imparteth power To uhed abroad a fragrance Bweet, To blossom In the lives we meet.

And, as life's river glldotu on To laud of everlasting dawn, The peace of life well spent, will uu A foretaste of eternity. The Mnoonic Colouration, Present indications aro that tho masonic observance of|St, John's day June 24, will bo one of the most elaborate affairs ever gotten up in Algona. This office has turned out the past week 760 invitation cards, which will be sont to tho individual members of the fifteen lodges neighboring to Algona. A large attendance is insured, and a royal entertainment is to bo provided. Our lodge horo has already scoured reduced railway rates to all attending, will have U&, orator ot renown, and a , local programme of excellence.

Gardner Cowlcs' Narrow Escape lu a Runaway Near Grand Forks, North Dakota. Miss Ollie Wilkinson Badly Hurt Near Corwith Last Thursday—The Cyclone Near Renwick. A telegram was received last Friday by A. A. Call announcing that Gardner Cowles hod had a runaway and was hurt. Mr. Cowles was at the time travelling in tlio extreme north of Minnesota looking after mail routes, and tho telegram was sent by his brother. Dr. Shore and Mrs. Cowles took the night train for Minneapolis where they met him coming: homo, and tho three returned arriving Sunday morning. Mr. Cowlos was not seriously injured as was supposed at first, but had a bad cut near the knee and some painful bruises. Ho was driving near Grand Forks, when tho neck yoke camo down lotting tho wagon tongue on tho ground. In tho runaway he was thrown over into tho braces which hold tho tongue to tho wagon, and dragged there. The team finally got loose and left him, until a farmer came along, who supposed ho was dead and was about leaving him to got the coroner, when he moved. Tho farmer took him to town, and ho is now safely at home. Ho will bo laid up a couple of weeks, but no serious trouble is anticipated, as «», A. & w&rt, sa4 S.

WESLET, June B,—The beautiful rain has come at last and crops of all kinds bid fair for a rather large harvest this year. Nearly ovory farmer Is plowing corn. Wesley Is still under quarantine, although the board of health raised the quarantine for a few days last week, but only for a few days when there was a rather bad case of the scarlet fever broke out. Our school teachers in tho meantime had been notified that they could resume their school work again to finish up the balance of their term, but the health officers thought It would be best to close up the schools and all other public gatherings till the fovcr could bo chocked. Therefore wo have no schools, church, or Sunday school at present. Our public schools will not open up any more this spring as there are only two more weeks of school to finish up the school year. The board of directors decided that it would bo best not to have it begin again this spring, but have tho time made up at tho beginning of tho fall term. Prof. A. A. Slfert and Miss Jennie Pettibono have both been engaged to teach our schools again the coming year. All can rost assured that Wesley is going to havo good schools. ...

Morroll of Des Moines was horo a few days last week looking after his land interests, Mrs. A. McPherson's family are having a reunion at present.
