Miss Clara Berger of Mason City came over last week to visit Miss Maggie Winkel. Miss Berger has many friends In Algona who are pleased to see her again. Mrs. Quarton and children are home, and W.

He now Is discussing selling the hunch to Colorado mnchmen, but i! he decides not to, "will divide them tip ahd sell them In this locality. It is to be hoped that the stock Is retained in this section, as it is all the test in quality, and distributed hereabouts would accomplish Wonders In bringing up our cattle.

Bead of, convene about, observe, and study the kinds of animals that the Iowa soil you work will maintain. Then buy cautiously, a few at a time, while you study the golden mean of feeding that is midway between the show.man end the scrub breeder. 1 A first-rate mare or two, a pedigreed cow or more as you have money to buy them. Keep all tho females and as years come you will see your farm filling up with stock that will be a continued source of pleasure and profit Tho sales of pedigreed cattle this spring have averaged (100 a head, and'they will average more In tho near future. Pedigreed hones sell readily for throeV four, five, and six times as much as work horses, and will continue to do so. We want mutton sheep In Iowa. There Is money waiting for the enterprising men who will find the right kinds and breed them for sale. If you lack heart to buy a mare or a cow, or a pure bred sow, got a trio of poultry, at least, and breed better the Watson block across the street, but the dust and heat soon stifled it, and the town maintained its usual equilibrium. Mr. Starr has purchased the room next to Setae's shop, and Sometime next month will move the' postof- fice outfit.

A iiome industry. The best cheese is n home-made, whole-cream cheese, and that is what G. S. Wright & Son are making at their farm near West Send. They now have a 60-cow dairy, and the entire product is devoted to cheese, for which they are making a market at Algona, Emmetsburg, and other surrounding towns. Both Mr, and Mrs. Wright are old cheese makers, and they expect to give their factory hero a good old New York reputation. Mr. Wright says he never made a skimmed milk cheese in his life, but thinks he can satisfy any taste with a full milk cheese. The people should try the Wright cheese. District Camp Mooting.

All there Is to say tot Eagle Grove Is that there Was a good celebration and poor races, Ai to Who wins and who loses In the lawsuit originating from the races, the citizens of Eagle Grove and of .Wright county don't care a continental.

And so I left it undisturbed. In spite of the fact that no care was given it at all, and ashes were heaped arovmd it simply because they hnd to be thrown somewhere, the wee thrived and grew. Not being on expert in fruit growing, it .did not occur to me until last year that I was nurturing a tree that would ultimately become other than a poor shade. At that time, 'however, I made the discovery that 1 had "builded better than I knew," and thle season my pains wefe regarded by its producing a handful of very nice cherries—not alone handsome to look at, but good for eating purposes. The tree is fully two Inches in diameter at the base, stands eight feet high, and is rugged and StWng. It has grown from its Infancy under most adverse circutn- stances, and there is no Jfnowlng what it might have done with anything like & fair show. One conclusion can safely be drawn, ahd that is that fruit raising can be successfully accomplished in northern Iowa.. -'.-»*• ROCKSAEfOR STOCK.

Iowa Is to bo the home of fine stock. There Is room for and need for more pedigreed stock in Iowa of all kinds than are now to be found In tho whole United States. It la too far in this century to think of improving tho scrub with the scrub. Every farmer In tho stato would make It pay to begin breeding pedigreed stock, If for no other purpose than homo use, the product for sale on tho market Independent of pedigree. There are some pedigreed scrubs, but they are tho result of bad handling. All tho Breeds of fine animals will be in tholr places on our'different pastures. Tho heavy soils found In nearly every part of Iowa that prow heavy crops of grasses, will grow .arge animals, and it Is wise to begin ou such soils with tho largo breeds of all kinds. The early maturity found In Improved animals is practically developed on our grasses. Better stock of all kinds will revolutionize our systems of agriculture. It Is found that good stock on< good grass requires loss tho average year where gross Is abundant. All this assures demand for well bred stock. The demand will keep pace with tho growth of intelligence concerning farm management, when depressions come, at they will,- the best only gives profit. This Is being observed and Is causing lively demand for better stock. See bow heavy draft horses sell. See how fine carrlojro horses sell. See how fine roadsters and speed hones sell. See how export steers sell, the best gives a profit. See how tho mutton sheep and lamb sell, the early pullet, and' the evenly assorted drove of hogs. All sell well. There is choice of vocations, variety of breeds, for different market*. We have 20 females and tho prices of many males from our pedigreed cow that began to breed eight years ago, and their cost bos not exceeded for keeping our grade cattle, as all run together. We know of no country where good stock is so easily kept good, and where Judicious breeding tells so quickly. So we say to our readers it is a favorable time to start a herd. Prices for females Is very moderate. Demand for males Is very brisk and shows tho trend of tho public mind. Among Early Scenes. Algona feels u pardonable prifte ip her young men who go out and win, and an appreciative audience filled the Congregational church Sunday evening to'overflowlng to hear Rev. Wulter M. Walker, who has spent a week at home. It ia needless to say that .his sermon met every expectation, and that the marked Improvement ho has mado in late years was the occasion of many congratulations from his old friends. As a pulpit orator he easily stands among the front rank anywhere, and his success in New York City is not at all re- markablo in view of his power.

One of the most brilliant social events of the season occurred at the homo of O, O, Walker last Friday evening, in the marriage reception of their daughter, Cora M., and her husband, W. C. Dunson. The marriage ceremony was performed in the presence of a few friends in the early .evening by her brother Walter, but by half past 8 o'clock the house was filled with invited guests, who were most graciously- received, and who extended their heartiest congratulations to the happy couple. The event was doubly pleasant to all because of the presence of Walter and his bride, us well us of Will, and Rome, all of whom had come to enjoy the occasion. Mrs. Clara Pwight and Mrs. Jos. Pluister of Dubuque' were also present. Refreshments were served to all, und after an hour spent in pleasant conversation and in viewing the handsome presents und the elaborate decorations, the guests metaphorically threw old shoes and rice ut tho departing couple as they took the train east.

No Algona paper has stated that we hud a poor celebration. On the contrary, Algona never had a'better celebration. The only objection that has been raised Is that no 1 amusement was provided for the afternoon, but that time was given by common consent to the races. Algona secured the best music in this part of the state, hod an orator whose name and reputation speak for themselves, and in every way, so far as the celebration went, did everything to entertain and instruct the crowds which gathered. As tho driving park association had advertised their races before, and as to the majority of people races are a pleasant amusement, the citizens did nothing in the way of tho time-honored greased pole climbing, wheelbarrow race, and greased pig catching, which would have cost nothing to provide. They thought what wus legitimate amusement for Now York nnd Chicngo, to say nothing ot Mason City, Eagle Grove, LeMars, etc., might do for the people of Kossuth. They thought this all the feore as racing is the chief attraction .at our county fairs, and especially as the state fair lias made such a specialty of' Its fust stock exhibits. There was no dissatisfaction with the Alirona celebration by nnyono who came willing to expect what ho could get at any other town.

Will. F. Smith Send* In a Pretty Dig Shooting Story from Wcbuter City. State Register: A few days ago the Register published an Item about a remarkable Fourth of July shoot at Webster City, with the statement that a prominent Dos Molnes marksman believed it to be an impossible record. The same marksman also said that he would wager $100 not one of the men reported to have made the record could make it under the American association rules, The item attracted the attention of W. F. Smith, auditor of Hamilton county, who in a letter to the Register says: " An I was one of the parties implicated I wish to confirm the report and say that the score as reported is entirely correct in every particular. Esquire P. Knowles, Dr. Rltonour and myself met and shot ut eighteen pair of Peorlu blackbirds, fifteen yards rise, and both' traps pulled together. The traps are strong ones and the birds wore thrown at great variety of angles —much more so than usual. All gentlemen held the butt of the gun below the elbow, which is much harder than the American rules. For myself I do not know just how we made such a score, but Mr. Rltonour got 83 and Mr, Knowles and myself got 88 each, out of 18 pair of double rises, and we are going to do it ugalu if we can, b«t I doubt If we ever ao. I agreo with the DOB Molnes sportsman, I think he in a leiwel headed chap. I would like to bet an equal amount myself the same way.' port which has been spread broadcast about the matter came from a-few persons who have made It a business to lie about Algona for a year past, and who came to the celebration for the solo purpose of slandering the people who got it up. ° ' # » * Wo clip the following Horn from the Hancock Signal: "Algona is not receiving outside compliments on her Fourth of JuTy celebration; on the contrary, she gets Homo pretty hard hits. Tho UPPEK DES MOINES has not heretofore noticed u lot of stuff put out in tho county against Algona. But when our friendly neighbors, like the Eagle Grove Gazette and Hancock Signal, are imposed on by tho slanders being spread broudcaat, it seems that tho time hud como to say something. This whole report about tho Algona celebration comes from a scribbling Ignoramus who assigns himself to Whlttemoro, and what merit there is In it our neighbors will understand when they know that copies of his letter wero sent to the papers In adjoining counties, but not to the homo papers. Tho Emmetsburg papers received it, though we believe they refrained from publishing It. Tho report IB in keeping with a lot of such stuff that has sought tho light during tho past year. The mout Vicious of tho list was a letter last winter filled with tho most malicious' lies, published just as tho normal school contest was at Its highest pitch, and when Its circulation would have dono tho greatest dam' ago. Thanks to the generosity and for beurance of our neighbors, the letter fell stillborn, und never oven was recognized by thoeo most anxlpus to win the school away from Algona. Tho matlvos which actuate this persistent lying are In dispute. It Is needless to discuss thorn. Wo can assuvo our neighbors, however, that whatever tho motive, tho result hero at homo is. to disgust every one with tho man or men who have so little sense of decency as to foul their own neat, There may bo many who would have preferred some other entertainment than tho races at the Fourth, but tho people in Kossuth who will endorse the statements that wero sent out from Whltte- moro are confined to the man who wrote them and the paper that let them see light. 311 VUU11UI U 1" DTT»M B -~D , ,. v,« uo . dancing on tho see-saws and. pulling the eyes out of the wall-eyed pike as ordinary children.

A profusion of smllax was predominant in the hall, and in tho parlors everywhere bouquets of out flowers,_pptted plants and ferns greeted the eye. The beauty of the green verdure seemed to smile with happiness on tho bright scene, relieved as it was by the protty carnations. When tho clock hid chimed tho hour of 8, the bridal party consisting of Misses Ella Boynton of Franklin, Ohio, and Amy Merrilleld. sister of tho bride, as bridesmaids, and Messrs. Will Walker of Algona, Iowa, and W. B. Owen of Morgan Park, 111., and tho bride aud groom, preceded by little Harry Hess and Louise Merrifleld, acting in tho capacity of pages, deccnded tho staircase to the strains of the wedding march by Miss Kate Shulor. Tho ceremony was performed in tho east parlor, and was most impressive, being that of tho Baptist church. Rev. Dr. Fredericks, with words well fitted for such an occasion pronounced tho happy couple man and wife. The bride's dress was of cream armuro silk, en train, and her ornaments wore diamonds. She carried a bouquet of cream roses as did tho bridesmaids. Tho groom wore tho conventional full dreas. As is tho usual custom of such brilliant affairs, congratulations wero showered upon the newly wedded pair, after which they visited the dining room, where was enjoyed n delicious dinner, served by Weber of Chicago. . Tho table was decorated with tho beautiful green smila* and carnations. The guestu wero most royally entertained until tho midnight hour, w they repaired to their respective homes. JAS. A.

Knoxvillo Express (Ind.)i A " young ttum" named Wasson, who Is temporarily moulding public opinion nt the Reporter, is endeavoring to reconstruct journalism, tho democratic party, and tho world in general before Mr. Simpson gets back from Indiana. This pushing and enterprising "young man" seems especially bent on declaring the Express n republican paper,. and prohibiting nil good democrats from giving It aid or countenance. At the same time ho says tho Express would sell out the whole thing for ton cents per line. Now, wo don't feel angry nt this pushing " young man." True, he says- AVO must go. But ho also gives his readers to understand that tho old wheel horses of the democratic party must walk the plank. We feel really sorry for "them. Such men as ex-Senator McCormack, Hon, G. W. Crozier, Hon. C. H. Robin, son, and a score of other leading won of the party—men who havo borne the heat of the battle in Marlon county for a quarter of u century—all these must retire. According to our pushing young friend, the democratic party needs "young men" to lead It. The Express is not In politics, but we shed tears when we think of those valiant democrats who must bo sacrificed to make a Wassorilan holiday. By tho way, this active "youngman" who blow in hero from Algonu about a year ago to teach politics to Marion county democracy—this over worked attorney who relinquished a big practice in northern Iowa to come down and boom Knoxville—has not confined his pushing to tho former leaders of tho democratic party In Marlon county. Huving pushed them overboard he is now trying to push himself Into a good offlce—that of county attorney. Indeed, T1IK CASE IK A NUTSHBXL. When Duby was sick we gnve her Custorla.

The poo,r fellow was certainly bud enough qff, and we are at a loss to nxplftln the judge's action, unless he was actuated by an old grudge. Bo that «8 it may, ho was sent to the penitentiary us if everything was greased for the occasion. Having pushed the, client behind tho bars, Mr. Wusson at once asked the court to give him un order for S5.50, in addition to tho statutory fee, to cover "expenses," Tho court at once informed the pushing "yo,u,ng man" that he had no authority to give suph an order, and -that ho was entitled only to $10, the regular fee. Nothing daunted, Mr. Wasson on the 2()th day of May, in exact Apposition to the directions and orders of tho court, pushed a bill before the board for $10 fee and $5.60 " expenses." And Mr. Buckman marked it U O. K." and our pushing ya«ng friend got the money! But let it not ho supposed that this young leader of western democracy can push only at one thing. On the contrary, his versatility is equaled only by his unquenchable gull. When tho homo for tho blind was tiillrod of ho pushed himself on tho committee und elbowed responsible men to one side. He was first at the banquet table, first In the free carriages, and last on tho subscription paper. Indeed, so vigorously did he push that he succeeded in obtaining over $30 of the money subscribed for necessary expenses. He said it was for "expenses." Mr, Wusson's efforts wore indeed expensive. Wo shull observe with interest Mr. Wusson's efforts to push himself upon tho democrat party as its candidate for county attorney. His efforts will of course be unsuccessful, but none the less amusing—and pushing. In the meantime we should be pleased to see him push out nn explanation of his connection with tho funds of tho exeoutive committee.
