A son of Mr. Mittag at Fenton mistook a cartridge for a fire cracker on the Fourth, and in firing it got his.face full of powder. He ran to a pond near by and rubbed water on the burn, until all the skin on his face was rubbed off, This may with Puritan precision bo said of tho Ringllng Brothers' United Monster Railroad Circus, Museum, and Menagerie, the enormous Institution which exhibits at Algona, Saturday, July 19. With regard to detail may it also be observed that this great show possesses more actual great features than any other of toe few b g railroad shows. Among the lists of their circus and hippodrome artists wo find tho names of the most celebrated riders, gymnasts, acrobats, noriallsto, charlotters, etc., among them Mile. Julia Lowando, the world-famous Brazilian lady rider; Edward Shipp, tho great four and six-horso equestrian; La Hole Bros., the flying men of the air; Andrew Gaff ney, "theoldoak;" tho Ash tons, the Japanese performers; the Arab horsemen, and scores of others. The great double menagerie we find wonderfully complete, In fact a perfect innovation to all lovers of natural history. The monster hippopotamus. the amphibious bovp- , ------ f^.. --- ,.. ~™, u ino African zebras; lephant, tho baby elo- song beautifully rendered by na chorus followed, after which Samuel Mayne read the declaration in a most pleasing manner, and the orator of tho day, A. L. Hudson, Was introduced. To most of the audience Mr. Hudson was well known, and his re* tura to his old home was the occasion of a hearty and enthusiastic receptlou. As the applause died away he beeaa la a clear voice a brief eulogy of Kossuth aad her people, aad thea apostrophizing the saaitary flag secured la early years, he passed to the discussion of the duties of citizenship, the consideration ugh the dam, \mtil one morning just as tho beauty of the valley was. blooming into the month of roses, owhlle Its faCr tory Wheels were turning, and its wealth o: human lives engaging in the activities o the day. there came a c*ash that Was felt throughout the globe. The cries of help less women fcnfl childten stfuggUne ,wttU the waves, the shouts and groans of strong men Who sought In Vain to, help them, the crash of breaking timber, the crushing put of human lives, the grinding and mangling ot human bodies, were all made the light, fantastic play of the maddened waters that had first leattied to know their 'cruel power, 10,000 lives that day paid forfeit for recklessness that-was a crime. The greatest single tragedy the world has over known stands as an awful warning that we can hot safely rest in fancied security while the dam is being undermined that guards all that we hold most sacred and most dear; that wo can not safely disregard tho violation ot established law.

Th most serious accident reported. Mr. Brunson says that over twenty- five applications for pensions under the new disability pension law have been made out in ms office already. This law covers all cases where pensions are actually needed, and will undoubtedly do more to bring the money to the hands of those who would suffer without it than any law yet passed. Winkel's "Kossuth" has gone to Bancroft. Murphy, the man who helped Mr. Winkel pick him out when he bought him, has been advised of his record thus far. If he thinks it is satisfactory Kossuth will be shipped to Minneapolis at once to get ready for the derby. If he thinks the horse is not in condition, he will not go. If local rivalry keeps up we are likely to have some races belore long between local trotters. Sid. Blossom has a colt that wants to meet Marsh Stephens' stepper, while the sheriff and auditor have a little race that is still to come, and Brewster'e "Darkey" is not yet sure that "King David" is ' too fast for him. About fair time we onght to have some lively contests between our home horses. C. Byson's son had about as narrow an escape as any on the Fourth, He was holding his horse and carriage on the side of the road leading to tho fair grounds, when a loaded 'bus passed and caught the carriage wheels. The carriage, horse, and boy were for a minute together in an indiscriminate mass, but the boy came out with only a bruised head. The horso was also all right, but the carriage had suffered extensively. C. I. Harvey is home from Chicago, and is recovering rapidly from the effects of the operation on his face. A large piece of the jaw bone was cut away, and also the tumor from his lip. The wound is now healed over, and the doctors assure him that the bone trouble will not return. The tumor, v however, is liable to comeback, though not immediately. Mr. Harvey says the operation was very painful after ho had come out from tho influence of the an- lapsus: the only gem the umbrella-eared eli, r , — -r--i phant, the clown elephant, tho giant ele phant Babylon, beside tho enormous collections of other caged and uncaged animals, constitute a zoological collection that cannot be equaled by any other management, and In which tho managers seem to have actually outringlingedtnerongtogs. When of which the character of the day dered appropriate. He closed his tlon with an eloquent appeal for tho observance of law. Music by the chorus and by the band closed tho exercises, and the people scattered to indulge in a picnic dinner, and dispose of themselves for the afternoon as they saw fit. Lunch counters, lemoaade stands, the bowery dance, and tho races, divided attention until evening, wken an attractive though not elaborate display of fire-works was given east of town. MK. HUDSON'S ORATION. In opening his address Mr. Hudson spoke as follows: My Friends and Fellow Citizens: After an absence of something over seven years It is with extreme pleasure that I come to as the Invited guest to Join heart we take into consideration the great world's horse fair, tho wonderful museums, the troupes of performing animals, etc., and last but not least, the great, glorious, free street parade, it must bo confessed that Saturday, July 19, will be the greatest holiday event that Algona will have for many years to come, or until tho great Ringllng show again spends a day among us. Recollect that the only show in America that possesses real African zebras is.Rlnglinr Brothera' monster railroad shows. At Al gona, Saturday, July 19. There are Great liargalns , . men tho to fight its one In hats and all millinery goods at Matson, McCall & Go's. A FRESH box of Wheat Germ Meal wafers just received at the Cash Store. Try them. Rlngling Day. Every Important holiday event Is known by some popular name. The Fourth of July Is no more a general holiday than the one on which the Great Ringllng Brothers' Monster Railroad shows appear; and so universally has this became established that the advent of the enormous institution Is known far and near as Rlngling Day. The dally expenses of these Monster Shows are so great that, if their reputation was not so good that all feel they would bo great losers if they missed seeing them, tho Big Show could not live a month. This Is why schools, factories, business places, and even legislatures and courts, are closed when they come, and all transportation companies can afford to give their patrons cheap excursion rates. Ringllng day comes this year at Algonn, Saturday, July 19. WE expect raspberries Townsend & Languon. you today as the invited guest to Join noari and hand with old friends in the celebration of a day which brings all hearts and hands together In patriotic fellowship. It is always a good thing to come home: *-*-*-«• ever experiences life may bring to place where they first learn to fight battles IB always home to them. But needs to go away from home to comprehend the full strength of its associations. It ia difficult to form a clear, unbiased Judgment of those who are very close to us, cither in friendship or opposition. During the yoars that I havo been removed a little distance from you I have learned to know, as I never did before, the great strength of character of the strong men of Kossuth. Coming from the most advanced and enterprising element of the sturdy stock that peopled a now world two centuries ago, and fought for liberty until they won It, the early settlers of Kossuth havo met and overcome obstacles that would have killed or discouraged weaker men, and have grown stronger with each new contest, Just as the massive oak gains strength with every storm that beats against it. And by a simple and naturallaw, these men. great in themselves and greater in their development, havo attracted to them from the mass of humanity seeking homes in the west, men of like temper and spirit with themselves. , Every community owes its character and intellectuality to its founders. As surely as the magnet draws the stool the little nucleus first formed gradually attracts to it minds that arc congenial; while those of different typo pass on to other'fields; so thatastheyd ' ' " — pands along tl ...... „». „ r out: " TelYwind'and fire and water when to stop, but talk not to us of mercy." • I have no doubt that much of tho prevailing disregard for the sacredness of law is due to unwise, hasty, impassioned, sentimental, and Incompetent legislation, But in our obedience to law we cannot safely make distinctions. By tho memories of this day we stand on eacrcd ground. Through the sacrifice of noble live* there has been bequeathed to us a glorious republic. If laws have been or shall be unwisely framed, there has been insured to us tho right of modification. But while any law remains upon the statute book, the snored memories of this day call upon us; one and all, to preserve it with " our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor." Thus only can wo hope to attain that high ideal of government— "Where tho war drum throbs no longer, And the battle Hags are turiei), In the parliament of man, The federation ot the woriu." At tlie Itnco Trnck. Tho largest crowd that has ovor gathered at tho fair grounds to witness speed trials appeared shortly after noon, and were not delayed long in seeing five fast trotters got away in the 2:40 class. Dr. Clock of Clear Lake, owner of tho now famous Golddust Prince, had been secured as starter, the gate, A great many people to horso races, but like base bull they are a generally recognize mate amusement. Thirty '---- , people went 60 miles out of New York on the Fourth through a rain storm to see races, and then tho best horses would not go because the mud was ankle deep. Celebration at Beaton. To the Editor: Fenton celebrated. The reporter was a celebrator, at tho celebration of the celebrated " Fenton," and can truly say that Fenton celebrated as only Fonton can. The day was almost moro than could be expected, the place a delightful maple grove, so dense as to make almost a complete shade, admitting now and then a sunbeam to help gladden tho happy throng. Everything beneath was merriment, above, the brood leaves clapped their little hands in glee, with ono continuous sound. Tho programme was carried out to the letter, and tho participants did honor to themselves individually, while tho applauses of the nudlonco were showered upon them with profu- The audionco was culled to order by J.

These are two-Inch pipes with heavy sand screens, which will be driven ia the bottom of the well In various directions to tap other veins of water. He Will thea proffer the well for the test. If It stands, ao ono of course will raise any objection because it is 118 instead of 180 feet deep. What the test will be seems to bo la doubt, but that it will be thorough Is assured. Emmetsburg's well has just been decided worthless by experts, aud their whole system of works Is in. Algona has no need of water works until sho has a well that is a success, except that the town may have to buy the pump in ordar to satisfactorily make a test. There would bo no loss in getting tho pump at any tlmo, as thero is no doubt that we shall got a well sometime. Their Silver Wedding. A pleasant gathering was the surprise party at B. J.

P. Dorland is given this week. We doubt if a better descriptive writer is contributing to any of the big daiiles, at any rate they are few who excel him. We hope ho will not forget his promise to continue the story. There may be some consolation in reading the circumstances under which he writes in view of the hot weather and dust hereabouts: "I have to keep the blamed tarantulas off my feet and the sweat off my face and try to write at tho same time," Thos. Coonan, who has been in the original package business at Ruth von, has been in town several days looking for a place to open a saloon here. Yesterday he had not been able to rent a room. He says if ho can get a place ho will be running in a week, but he does not want to buy tho city. Everyone seems to fool that they want nothing to do with tho institution, and a general impression seems to prevail that Algona will not be a healthy place for it to start. Ed. Bircher says ho don't believe he wants to open here. Wo announce this week a slight change in our business policy which we have contemplated for some time, but which Jmfi seemed peculiarly appropriate coming after the celebration. It ha« been customary for church societies and others to receive free advertisements for lemonade and ice cream stands, which compete with out- regular customers who pay for their notices. This is unfair to the latter, and tho only satisfactory way is to have a rule for all alike. Advertising for all gatherings at which money is charged comes under the head of tho newspa- per'u legitimate business, and should bo paid for accordingly. For all fi'eo entertainments, sociables, etc., we shall " * to publish notices as hereto- to give all proper information of church and benevolent meetings.

In Iowa tho signal service says: In tho central and eastern counties of the southern half of tho state a drouth of Homo severity prevails, but little or no rain having fallen during tho past week, and the amount of the season bo- ing deficient. Except within tho limited area of drouth, all crops are in promising condition. Corn is doing remarkably well everywhere, oven in tho dry- ost sections, In portions of the southern counties it is in tassel and silk, and in nearly all parts it is about up to its seasonable height.

Look all around you and observe to what wonderful extent counties and communities you know havo been populated by people of the same race and characteristics as the original settlers. The early settlers of Kossuth county wore tho pioneers of the northwest, and have been pioneers of every great undertaking since they settled here. From the first, tho predominant thought has been to push forward in every now •undertaking that seemed to them a good thing for the county, and to excel in whatever they might undertake. And every man who has come within the borders of the county according to his capacity, has been imbued with this invincible spirit of excellence and progress. I have spoken of the men of Kossuth because their deeds arc cosier to trace along the line of public history. But I am not unmindful of tho fact that tho brave hearts and heroic lives of tho men of Kossuth have been strengthened, sustained, and cheered by the subtle charm of tho pure and beautiful womanhood of those who have shared their trials, divided their toils, and multiplied their Joys, the women of Kossuth. After speaking in detail of some of KosBUth'a achievements, ho said: But it is In times of great emergency that nations, communities, and men, reveal their greatest strength, when our nation was engaged in the desperate struggle which meant life or death to country and liberty, thegreafand loyal state of Iowa called upon her sisterhood of counties to engage in friendly competition as to which should bo most helpful in the nation's hour of need. And hero again as in every other field of competition this spirit of excellence animating the hearts of the noble men and women of Kossuth made her for all time, in name as well as in fact, the banner county of the state. And when the state of Iowa bestowed this beautiful banner upon the county of Kossuth in token of its excellence. I think the incarnate spirit of liberty must have made the presentation. And that all who are present must have beard her words saying: '' Glorious trinity of colors, beams of tho rising sun that prophesy an endless day, field from the deep blue vault ot heaven, and stars of spotless purity that shall shine while time endures; beautiful emblem of an immortal land, go tell the world the story of tbo sweetest rivalry that ever stirred the heart of man; tell of successful competition, through loving sacrifice upon the altar of a country's need. Speak evermore of the excellence in noblo deeds of the men and women of Kossuth," In conclusion he said: Last but by no means least we should be law abiding citizens. No honest citizen can afford to sanction an infraction of the law. It is the safe-guard to life and home and property. Itls the great dam which holds back the flood of passion, selfishness and crime that always threatens peace and safety. These facts are so self-evident that they are commonplace, aud trite, aud yet the tendency or tills generation is every day growing moro and more pronounced to disregard any law which does not suit our personal Intercuts or conform to our personal prejudices. Tho lax observance of election laws by tho people ot certain sections of tho country; the persistent evasion and viola- and except that on Friday ho allowed a good deal of time between '-^ats, ho was very satisfactory to everyone. At first it seemed that tho race lay between "Chinch Bug" and "That's What," but tho second heat developed that tho first was easily the best horse on the track. Tho entries were: Buvetreat, by W. H. H. Colby, Fort Dodge: Chinch Bug, by G. C. Thomas, Vlnton; Flora Lee, by Mart. Coonan, Kmmetsburg; That's What, by C. Pike, Chicago; Granvil, J. H. Pike, Chicago; Bertha B., A. Englo, Eagle Grove; Wapsie B., G. E. Alexander, Des Moines. Granvil and Bertha B. did not start. Chinch Bug took first, That's What second, and Flora Lee third. Best tlmo 2:35. The second race was tho throe minuto class, with 10 entries: Billy B., b. Thomas Quinn, Chicago; King Davi bv d, J. W. Tennant, W. H. H. C(Wm. Lynch van, Prince, M. F. Hazel Mala, by D. W. Moulton, then carao the oration by C. M. Doxseo. Time nor space will not allow mo to go into detail, BO will only say that he, taking tho landing of tho Pilgrim Fathers us the real beginning of American independence, sketched very effectually the course by which it was attained. Of course no orator can do that without referring to Putnam, to tho father of our country, to tho savior of our country, to Grant, and to many others. 1 will not attempt a further description for I nm afraid it would tend to war rather than olevato. However the speaker made one assertion which our honorable board of school directors could not masticate sufficient to swallow, and I am of tho opinion that if they could manage to choke it down and it was allowed to follow nature's course, it would take 20 years to digest it. It was this: " It is a day when schools should bo closed." The board claim it is a day when schools should not be closed, but a day when their children should not attend, After tho oration were declamations by Mabel and Alida Peck, and Bert Hunnu, singing of America, basket dinner, and after dinner racing and ball game between East and West Fonton, game in favor of tho latter 81 to 10. Tho Fonton Opera company served ico croam and lomonodo in grand style, and in the evening was assembled at tho hall as decent and well behaved company as a ganized, went up and took possession of tho place, served a dinner appropriate to the occasion, and as a token of esteem presented tho happy host and hostess some handsome silverware. Deacon Hudson in n few remarks fittingly presented the gift, and Mr. Hunt responded in a feeling manner, thanking the friends. Among those present wore Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hyde, Mr. and Mrs. Zahlton, Dr. and Mrs. Hudson, Mrs. M. Stephens, Mrs, B. F. Rood and children, Mrs. H. Hudson and children, Mr. and Mrs. B. M.

King David and Darkey did not start, but the eight others did, and after several cataatrophies, finished tho race, Frank M. taking first, Hazel Maid second, and Grinnell third. The best time was 2:48. The best and most entertaining races happened to come Saturday when not nearly so large a crowd was present. The chief eventwas tho trial ofwinkel's Kossuth to boat the best mile and mile and a quarter records made at Spencer. On his first trial he stopped at three quarters, as the saddle girth had slipped, and considerable curiosity was aroused. But on the second trial he beat the milo record one second, going in 1:61, and tho milo and a quarter record more, going in 2:17i. The records at Spencer were 1:52 and 2:23. An impromptu race was gotten up between Tennant's King David and Brewstor's Darkoy. The first heat was not exciting, as King David took it easily, but the judges put Mr. Shannon, the Chicago driver, into tho Brewster sulky on the second heat, and although King David won, it was the most exciting raco of the whole meeting. Tho free for all trotting raco had five entries, all entered In the Friday's races. The Eaglo Grove horso, which did not trot Friday, was in but cut no figure in tho race. Chinch Bug won easily, That's What second, and Flora Lee third. Tho host time was 2:84i. An Exciting Kunawoy. The effort to got eight horses started on the track proved difficult enough, without having ono of them a disorderly beast on general principles. One horse was a disturber, and first ran into Coonan's sulky and threw him out, and then turned ovor another. Tho result was a broken heat in the three minute raco, while ono horse went sailing around tho track on the run, and another swung oft through the crowd at a vicious gate. After running across tho flat the horso crossed the track near the grand stand and struck Geo. W. Banna's carriage, smashing the wheels and starting his team on a run. The neck-yoke broke and tho team broke away, dragging Mr. Hanna over tho dash and hurting his buck. Tho horso then went around and coming in at the other end of tho stand jumped on the backs of another team, but did no dam- ago. As it happened no ono was hurt, but probably no one expected but that some one would bo killed as ho saw the horse break loose. A WuKIinnlmouu Gift, Mr, Hudson did a generous aot on receipt of tho $50 given him by tho conv mlttoo for his oration. After thanking them ho said he wished to donate tho amount to some public causa In Algona, and that ho should bo pleased to have it go to tho normal school fund. Tho money was turned over to the normal board, aud will be ueod by them iu furthering the Interests of the school. This aot of generosity, entirely unexpected, will secure a grateful recognition on the part of tho board and of tho public. It speaks highly for Mr. Hudson's interest in our town and its welfare, as well ws for his magnanimity in refusing to accept oven his expenses for the time and trouble expended.
