Jndigestion IS not only a distressing complaint, of 1 Itself, but, by causing the blood to become depraved and the system enfeebled, is the parent of Innumerable maladies. That Ayer's Sarsaparllla is the beat cure for Indigestion, even when complicated with Liver Complaint, Is proved by the following testimony from Mrs. Joseph Lake, of Brockway Centre, Mich.: — "Liver complaint and Indigestion made ray life a burden and came near ending my existence. For moro than klnils of fund dlstrcssud me, anil only tlm most dcllcato could bo digested at. ni;. Within the time mentioned several nli.vMri:uM treated 1110 without giving relief.

The judge will probably odd a dollar an acre to his big stock farm. The first tile and brick mode by our new factory are being put in the kiln (or burning. In a couple of weeks the county will see some Algona tile Pat. Ktiln was a pleasant caller yesterday.

Tho flag to be given to the township showing the most teams in the proces slon Friday is in the postofflco, and is a handsome banner. There is no fake about this flag. Some township will have a good one for its own uso hereafter. Our state delegates took a prominent part in tho doings at Sioux City, and supported the winning men with the exception of Mr. Lyons. They wanted Mr. McCarthy, who helped so ably in our normal school contest, but the fates wore against him, J. B. Jones and tho county have sot a contagious example over on Thorington street. Wo hear that the cigar factory, Geo. C. Call and others will soon have painters at work freshening up that part of tho city. New paint don't mako a town, but it does help its appearance. It is now settled that company F will go into camp at Spirit Lake August 16 with tho other companies of the Oth regiment. The full regiment of regulars at Omaha will camp with them. Spirit Lake is one of the handsomest spots in Iowa, and tho boys are to bo congratulated on their luck In camping there.

He expects to return to Algona und go to work again. An important improvement soon to bo made is the addition of a now front to F, S. Stough's boot and shoe store. Peter Purvis has the wood work done, and the glass is ordered. Tho whole front of the building will bo ronovutod, large windows put in, and a chango intuit) that will be greatly to tho credit of stuto street. Lot tho good work go on. President Harrison is sure of fame. The board made a new township of the J,aa*v$ Matter-, arid «fg- „ v&$ tfefc *etl6 of early County histoi'y, and that totte 0 the people may know something about It. Through the kindness o! Col. Com stoolt and other members of a forme" f? reading circle ia AlgOna, the Algona reading room has come into possession of a number of copies of the Popular Science Monthly, the Bdlnburg Beview the Nifteteeftth ^Century^aiid the Noi-th American Review. These r" valuable periodicals and the thanks o the ladles ot the reading room asaooia tlon are due to those who so kindly donated the magazines. The fireworks committee tested thi outfit received for the Fourth Monday evening, and everything shootfl as recommended. The rockets are the largest ever brought to Algona, and while the display will not be extravagant, the pieces will be hovel am beautiful. The Japanese bomb shells which explode in the air, have nevet been brought to this section before, am If the wind is low the ballous carryini fireworks will be very beautiful. I*. M. Taylor calls our attention to the case of Miss Louisa Steinman, a deaf and dumb girl of nineteen year who has lately come to Algona wit! her family. She has been educated a the Jacksonville, 111., school where she learned plain and fancy sewing, and she Is prepared to do any work in her lino for those -who desire her services. He case is one meriting the consideration of all, aud we take measure In giving this notice. Any having work In he line can confer a favor that will be appreciated by securing her. It is easy to be cute at the expense o other people's feelings or reputation But the paper that don't stand up fo its own town and its own people wil never be cute enough to pay its way The towns ^vhich get ahead are th ones that do not let personal spite interfere with united work for on< object, and the papers that represen such towns are the ones that encouragi a friendly feeling of co-operation, an let little personal feelings alone. Thli bit of sound philosophy has aloca bearing not only in Algona, but In th county as well. J. E. Paul is in town again af to spending the spring in fishing In Stive and Iowa lakes. He says he and hi companions have taken out over8,OCK pounds of fish with a hook this season and put them on the market. For week past the work has not been profll able, as It has cost too much to keo the moat. The report that he wa using a seine he says is untrue, am cost him some trouble, as parties ther came over to investigate and stop hi further use of the lakes. After satisfy ing themselves he had no furthe trouble. His best catch was 67 pickere In ono day averaging over two pound apiece. The steam pump was applied to th town well Monday, the engine whlstlec a crowd of sagacious witnesses gatherec the word was given and tho machiner was sot In motion. Tho water ra awhile at a great rate—some say 1,40 barrels a day—and It that the supply would seemed llkol be. exhausted but suddenly something happened, an tho pump was out of fix. There was four feet of water to begin with and a at end of two hours it had been lowere 18 inches. But as soon as the pumpin stopped it rose again at onco, and thor it stands. Mr. Stephens says it can no be pumped out, and as the sand get into the valve In this pump, it is no likely it can be now. He thinks ther is a permanent supply of water. D. H. Hutchins, when, ho came from California three years ago, brough over some seed of alfalfa, tho grass e prolific in that country. Ho sowed i on a barren piece of ground west of hi house, and there it has survived tw winters and is now in a- flourishing con dition. purple It smells like clover, and has blossom shaped like a clove blossom. Tho stem is tougher tha clover, the grass grows higher, is mor luxuriant, and grows faster. In Cal fornia they cut tho crop as high as six and seven times a year getting from on to two tons of hay each time to the acre Hero Mr. Hutchins thinks it could be cut three times. If it will stand th winter here, there can be no doubt tha it would bo well worth trying, an many will watch the little patch o Mr. Hutchins' lot with curiosity. A falfa may provo a valuable product fo this country. PERSONAL MENTION. H. K. Hoss was in Des Moincs o business over Sunday. Mr. and Mrs. Lan Sessions havo gon to Wisconsin for a short visit. Ole Neeling came down from Minm apolis on a short visit last week. H Is well pleased with city life. Miss Blanche Bishop of Arcadii Wis., arrived hero last evening, and : the guest of Mrs. R. B.

Let Harrison township now come down and win tho Fourth of July banner and begin itu glorious career. C. F. Bukor, who has boon toaohiug near Wesley, has an interesting question before him.

It is needless to assure our readers that Mr, Hudson's oration will be as fine as any given in Iowa, and the music and other features will be fully equal to the occasion. THE RACES. Entries for the races on the Fourth close today, and enough are insured to make the nest-contested trials over seen on the race track. There are fivi horses here from Chicago, and others from all parts of the country, Tlu charges for admission to the. track wil be 86 cents for adults and 16 cents foi children under 16 years.

In the evening there will be a bowery dance at the old skating rink There will be no dramatic entertain ment, as the Wesley company couli not bis here. _____ A Now Deal at the Foundry. Somo recent changes have put W B. Spencer, our old court reporter in possession of the foundry. Thatinstltu tlon has been badly managed, and its proprietors havo hod bad luck. Mr Baum, who was to put new life into th concern, departed a week ago rathe suddenly, and as he had borrowed Spencer, ho gave a bill of sale of hi share, and we learn that tho latter has since bought up the other claim stand ing against a clear title. Mr. Baum i in Dakota with the well dlglng machine lately made hero, and has contracts fo putting In five 000 foot wells at $2 foot. This is certainly profitable, an there Is no reason why he should no be able to clear up his financial affairs before he leaves for good. That ther is a good field hero for a foundry no on has doubted. With good managcnion It could be made to pay well, and th plant hero is an excellent one. / factory for a dozen kinds of implomont could be successfully established, am there is no reason why tho concern should not bo taken by somo ono wh desires a good opening. As a result o Mr. Spencer's getting possession w hope that something will bo done tc put the institution on a good business basis. A Full Voiced RGllglouB Mooting. The F.reo Methodists havo boon con ducting a rousing camp meeting 1 Call's grove the post week. They hav a big audience tent, and besides ther are 14 living tents all full to 'overflow ing. There are somo 75 visltlni brethren Including tho preachers Rev. V. A. Dako and wife of Chicag aro the evangelists, and havo arrouse groat enthusiasm. Among the pastors are Rev. Sumner, presiding elder the Algona district; Rov. Long, loca pastor; Rev. Wolcott of Hebron, Minn. Rev. Cooke of Ruthvon, Rov. Ray o Peterson, Rev. Anderson of Armstrong Rov. Kane of Wlnnobago City, Rev Sutton of Wells, Minn. Monday Mrs Kate Shemeld, for five years a mission ary in Africa, delivered an address Sunday a contribution of $05 was take up to pay expenses, and as that ind; cates, the meeting is considered a grea success. Rev. Sumnor in speaking o it says tho members feel under obliga tions to Algona peoplo for tho good bo havlor that has attended their meeting and also for tho interest manfestcc They will close this evening. Tlio Military Company, As the time of tho encampment draw near it is proper to cull attention to th fact that the town has thus far don nothing towards maintaining Compan F, and that Col. Boutin has numerou anxious applicants for a company wh are willing to put up money to get 11 and that at least ono company has boo disbanded because tho citizens hav taken on interest in it. Algona shoul certainly do something to show Its ap preoiatlon of having such an organization, for we believe it is a great advan tago to the town. To say nothing o the exorcise and training ft affords th young men, a well drilled company is fine addition to all parades, and is standing advertisement. Having company will give some 60 of tho boys u week's drill at Spirit Lake this year a no expense to themselves. But koep ing un armory, furnishing fuel, etc. costs money each year, besides buyini uniforms, und part of this the towi ought to be willing to bear. We bo liove the city should furnish un armor freo of rent. That is as little us is don in ull other places, and if huving thi company is not worth that it Is no worth anything. • Now Fnrmoi-u' Alliances, During tho past week several now nlllances huvo boon organized in thi county, and they now number ten in all Mr. Plowman, who is doing the work has gone homo to visit during tho Fourth, but will return und get many townships interested as possible Tho latest organizations are as follows Fonton, J. M. Moore, president; Edna Tibbetts, vice-president; J. L. Blunt secretary; und Fred Dehnert, treasurer Block Cat: F, A, Ames, president, A H. Nufus, vice-president; Chus, Hunnu secretary; and Thos. Hanna treasurer. This alliance stands out with 21 ohartot members. Tlio Good Templars' Convention, The convention of Good Templars held last Friday, though not largely attended, was a very interesting moot- ng, thoro being present delegates from Britt, Bancroft, Wosley, and Whltte- moro. W. W. Walton of Bancroft was appointed chairman. Goo. E. Bluokford secretary, und Miss Bertha Goetsch ol Whittomoro, assistant secretary.

The reports from the pensiofl depart- Bent last week contained the name o 8. Benjamin, who has had his allowance doubled, receiving now $8fl per month Everyone will congratulate him; as the increase was fully deserved. For mani years he got only $i).% a month, an< inly lately has had $15. He was severe iy injured in the service, and has been tor many years disabled for hard Work His present allowance Will remove th need of any anxiety for the future, ani put our Worthy veteran at least out o want's way. It is' a pension worthll; bestowed. AN TJNCAiLED FOR ATTACK. The Courlor in its two last.issues bos had items reflecting in a slurlhg man ner on the recent honor received by S C. Spear. What the occasion for the attack is is not known, but that it is un called for is apparent, for the honorar; appointment of Mr. Spear on Gen Miles' staff was not only a complimen to him but highly creditable to Algona as well. That the honor should have come to a citizen of-this county Instead of going elsewhere, ought to encourag at least respectful treatment. But thi Courier not satisfied to air some pett: grievance sneers also at Mr. Spear' military- service. As he is severa years younger than tho Courier edlto the Incident naturally suggests a com parlson. While Hinchon was husilj engaged in staying at home, Mr. Spea ran away at tho ago of 10 to enlist, niu was In active service for over a year and in several of the hard fought battle which closed the war. It comes with pretty poor grace for a stay at home t sneer at even tho humblest service o the mon who showed a willingness t stand by their colors. Mr. Spoar has been a good citizen of Algona, has taken fully as good a position as th editor of tho Courier, and is entitled tc decont treatment by the press. Th Courier is neither in good journalism nor decont business when it tries tc ridicule him or any other citizen o Algona, and it will find that It will go but little encouragement. THE NEW PENSION LAW. While not strictly local, tho text the new disability pension law will b of considerable interest in tho county Tho bill was signed by President Harr son last week. It will admit, It is est: mated', 800,000 new pensioners oxclu sive of tho widows, who are also pro vlded for.

A strange and somewhat improbabl story comes from Montezuma, but the Tlpton Conservative vouches for it reliability, Thomas Ballard who re sides just outside the town and i engaged in raising horses. A year ago soon after being bred, one of his mare was bitten by a rattlesnake, but sufferei no serious effects from it. Becentl;, she gave birth to a colt, which WOE found to have a large lump on its law which prevented it from sucking.
