The Algona correspondent of the Marshalltown Republican sent a spicy fepwt of the MnDbard concert last week: Subbard's Voice company hate been advertising themselves rei-y thoroughly the past week in our town, trying to organize what they call a vocal school. They gave their free popular concert last night to a crowded house. They a'dvertised doors open at 7, con" cert to begiri at 7:80, so the crowd gathered early. The audience entertained themselves as best they could for ah hour with the thermometer ranging at about 95 to 100. The crowd finally became quite boisterous and impatient, spatting and stamping more or less. At about this stage of the performance, our leading singer, D. T. Smith, Started up the good old song, " In the Sweet By and By." After singing two verses a motion was made to adjourn, but the motion did not prevail. After the mo^ tion to adjourn was lost ( it was an* nounced from the platform that the leading soprano singer had been sent for and would be present in a very short time. Soon Prof. Hubbard and Miss Elenor Unglei made their appearance on the stage and without any apology whatever for their long delay, tho concert began at 8:45. We will refrain from any comments on the concert further than to state that some of tho audience seemed pleased while others were disgusted. When it was known that Pro?. Hubbard was seated at the church door-during most of this racket, trying to keep cool, and made no explanation for treating his audience thus, his prospects for getting up his class in voice culture grow very small, At the close of the concert only sixty would agree to join the class, so the professor very portly and unceremoniously announced to the audience that when he got ready to begin the class he would lot them know. We do not question the professor's ability to organize and manage a class of this kind, but to sny the least in his favor, an Algona audience has never boon treated so shabbily. They shook the dust from their foot wsm UP us fi,t OW6. On her wS,y tfaok she 8af them cutting thai* corn tot fddder Ml through Indiana and Illinois. She saw no apples while cone, and no crops like Sill's. She sa* also no town like Al- g-ona. Daniels of Cotwith was at Cleat Lake with his three houses, and had worse luck than ftt Algona. His trotter was too slow for the class he was in, and did not go. He hod two runners in one race, ant they were protested, under the rule that two horses from the same barn cannot go together. Jake Freeh has secured the right to sell the patent sickle grinder that was exhibited in Algona last week, and will canvass the south part of the county. The machine is apparently just what is needed in the mowing field, and will undoubtedly be largely bought. We received an account of the storm in Hebron frotti Win.

Hunt was in Monday with a wagon load of apples, and some very fine ones have tteen sold by A, H. Durant. Apple trees are breaking down with their load in many places. Landlord Tehnant is going to trot his horse at Forest City, and in all the neighboring races, and have him in B shape for our fair.

A Dig Speculation. Ono of tho largest sales of real estate made in northwestern Iowa in some years has just been consummated by the American Investment Co., of Emmetsburg, Iowa. Mr. E. A. Blchards, banker of Manson, Iowa, is tho purchaser, and the list includes about 10,000 acres of wild land in Dickinson; Emmet, Palo Alto, Humboldt and Webster counties. The consideration, some $60,000, makes tho transaction worthy of special mention, says the Beacon. Mr. Richards, with the same remarkable foresight that has built up a fortune to him in banking, can see that wild land in northwestern Iowa is bound to increase rapidly in price, nnd as soon as tho E radical farmer realizes the truth and ivests in this vicinity the quicker will be his return. These lands aro In tho markets yet at decided bargains and on easy terms. ^^^^ The Military Encampment.

Jndigestion IS nut only a distressing complaint, ol I itself, but, by causing tho blood to become depraved and the system enfeebled, Is the parent ot innumerable maladies. That Ayer's Sarsoparlll* Is tho best cure for Indigestion, even when complicated with Wvcr Complaint, is proved by tho following testimony from Mrs. Joseph Lake, oi Brovkway Centre, Mich.: — "I.Ivor complaint and Indigestion mado my llfu u burden and came near ending my existence.

Jain hud a peculiar experience up in Portland lust week.- He was working on top of a big stuck of hay topping it out, when ho thought ho smelled burnt matches and began feeling around. As ho ran his hand in his pocket he soon discovered what was up, and drew it out again quickly enough. What to do ho could not decide, as he was too far up to think of jumping, and all went over to their new quarters y terdny afternoon. Tho telegraph wii are not changed yet, as tho man did not arrive who is to do tho job. At the Episcopal mission the pastor will spoak on "The Childlike Spirit" In tho morning at 11 o'clock. A cordial invitation is extended to the people of the Congregational church to attend during their pastor's vacation The rending room will soon be located in tho room just fitted up by Geo. L. Galbralth north of the UPPER DBS MOINES office. It will bo much more convienent for tho general public than it has been before. Our promised fish story from Geo. E. Clark IB given this week, and its modesty is commendable. Ho is evidently enjoying a pleasant vacation, nnd writes entertainingly of it. Ho will bo home this week. Tho Northwestern had two freight trains north Sunday. The road is about to do an immense freight business in this section, and still no decent passenger accommodations are furnished. Mrs. Pickney of Chicago, who has been visiting Miss Lonetto Wilson, returned to her home yesterday. Her father, G. F. VanVeohten of Cedar Bap- ids, visited last week with Mr. Wilson. Hugh Smith, UPPER DES MOINES compositor, ana lately with the Lu- Verno News, has gone with an Uncle Tom's Cabin company. Ho played with ono somo months a couple of years ago. Tho UPPER DES MOINES office is more like itself now that B. B. Warren has boon able to get around a little. His ankle is still of no use, but it docs not prevent him from being around. Mr. Wilson of Webster City, an account of whose experience is given elsewhere, is interested in Piedmont, whore G. B. Woodworth is going, nnd was on his way thero -when held up. In announcing tho officers of the normal school last week wo ommitted the name of T. H. Lantry as vice president. Mr. Lantry is too good an official whero- evor put to bo ommitted. Another desirable addition is J. A. Hamilton's lumber yard at the Milwaukee depot. Ho is putting in a full stock of hard wood lumber, and has built a shed the past week. No ono passing through Wesley these days will fail to notice Hums' now brick that is going up. It is as fine a building as there is anywhere, and a great credit to Wesley. It is said that tho hail stones killed a great many prairie chickens and that people are finding them every day. The finders use a dog, nnd carry a gun for protection. All who are interested in education The Republican Inst week exhibited Us usual disposition in commenting on the city well and Mr. Stephens. In reporting a council meeting it sold: "Martin Stephens appeared before the council when in session Monday night and made demand tot payment for the sum named in the contract, claiming fulfillment thereof on his part. The council sat down on the claim very hard." After then reporting that the council will further test the well, it continues: "If the well it all right Mr. Stephens Will get his money. If It is not all right ho will have to go without it. as the contract in express terms provided. In taking this stand the council doubtless reflect* the universal feeling. To take any other stand would, in fact, be acting in Violation of every principle controlling business men in their private affairs, and would smack strongly of jobbery." Both in spit-it and in faxit this statement is malicious. If, as the Republican says, the "contract In express terms" Is to be Observed, then Mi*. Stephens was entirely right in asking his monoy. But whether it is or not, there was nothing Improper or savoring of a desire to take any advantage in his request. We quote the terms of the contract between the town and Mr. Stephens, which provide that he was to be paid, not when tho well is accepted, but when it is turned over by Mr. Stephens, and that his bond of $2,000 was to protect tho city until it was finally accepted. The contract reads: " Said party of the first part is to give a bond in the sum of (3,000, signed by two such men as the party of the second part may accept; tho said bond is given for tho faithful performance of the contract ns hereby entered Into by said party of the first part. And tho said party of tho second part covenants and agrees with tho party of tho first part, in consideration of tho faithful performance of tho above specified work, to pay to tho party of tho first part the sum of (1,000 when said party of __. f See" of Mture wfis Strewn with frag- ttentfi. Scarcely fc whole pfttie of gifts* was found onthe north or west sides.of buildings. We go into these details to give the teaaet an idea 68 to the character of the storm, by iib means because they embrace any material share of the damage incurred. In fact, these losses are as the trimmings of the disaster. But little was known as to the condition of the country until next day. By fl o'clock farmers began to show up on the streets, and before noon every community In the 8tofm belt within miles of town was represented. Dismal tales were told, some resultant from real losses, others based upon low spirits and a lively imagination. mm no n Beeatise Cf op of Ail Kintia in the SortlvWest are First-Class and Prices on the fclse. front whlcn th-6y W&fantee inilft ft» the Senator.

Taylor, over his last week's marriage. It seems the couple he tied in holy bonds according to the statute were catholics, and no catholic can be fully married without the religious ceremony of tho church. When the married couple fully understood this they decided that 'Squire Taylor had not done all that was needed, and came In and were married over by Father Nicholls. again 0« Am ft Co,, Algona men are plenty at Clear Lake. Jim. Cowan is putting in two fine brick stores with a big opera hall over them, the McMurrays across the street aro putting in two other brick buildings of good dimensions, Gone Shadle is in tho leading store of the place, and others could be found for the looking. Clear Lake is building some good blocks, and Algona mechanics got the job because they put up a good school house there. We don't want to raise any suspicion of our political fealty, but wo aro constrained to confess that since tho weather signals have come into democratic hands they are in a more conspicuous place. Auditor Hofius now each morning elevates them to the Hag stall on the court house, and they may bo seen from tho country round, Tho work of attending to tho signals is no slight mutter, and he is entitled to much credit for undertaking it. Tho annual meeting of tho W. C. T. U., when officers will bo oloetod for tho coming year, will bo held on Friday afternoon, Sept. 5, in tho reading room which will then be opened in the Galbraith block on Dodgo street. The ladles have secured this pleasant and commodious room and will endeavor to iiuiko it a pleasant resort for both old and young. Will all members please remember this annual mooting? The annual Methodist camp meeting began at Goldfiold yesterday. Kov. and Mrs. Pratt wont down last week to assist in preparation. Rev. and Mrs. Whitflela go today, and wo hear that Dr. and Mrs. Barr, Mrs. Hough, Mrs. Slaglo, and Mrs. Gardner Cowles will also attend. Rev. Whltflold will return to preach both morning and evening next Sunday. It is learned that Bert. Hallock will quit the postoinco in the near future, and his place will bo taken by El Dalton. Bert, has boon an efficient and obliging official, and many will regret that ho is to leave. Ho says ho will stay in Algona and hopes to got a position in a store. Ho clerked two years boforo coining to Algona. John Goedors' advertisement this week announces a out Bale preparatory to his move into his new building. Mr. Goeders has shown his faith in the county by investing his money to help build up, and his trade will increase accordingly. Ho will have a handsome store, and will have, us he should, a handsome trade as well. Bert. L. Ward writes "if any of you up there would liko to see a lot of people with a Maud S. gait just come to Council Bluffs with her beautiful parks and palace hotel, her beer saloons on every corner and some school houses on tho hilltops." Bert is evidently enjoying lilo at the Bluffs. For the entertainment ot the teachers in attendance ut tho institute, and for the public in general, Rev. Eugene May will deliver his celebrated lecture ' ' With a knapsack through Switzerland and up tho Matterhora" on Tuesday evening, Aug. 19. at the Congregational church. Admission fyoe. Amon lmprov His jfUi u uiiu ouixi u& v*(" vv t* aiuu oaivt |'cu vj WL the first part shall have completed tho said well as above described. " And It Is further agreed by tho party of the first part that he Is to have no compensation whatever unless he shall procure an unlimited supply of water In the crystal well for tho party of tho second part's use. " It Is further agreed to by the parties hereto that the paying for and taking possession of said well by tho party of tho second part shall not bo an acceptance of said well by tho second party, but that said second party has the time above described In which to accept of tho said well." Tho time spoken for tost before final acceptance is cr.ii year alter tho water works aro in. Now wo have no intention of discussing how far this contract is binding on either party. We only quote it to show that in terms it provides for tho payment as Mr. Stephens requested, and that Mr. Stephens was in no way attempting "jobbery" or dishonesty as the Republican states. Wo quote it merely to show that It is easy for a paper to slander people by not acquainting Itself with facts. The truth is that if tho well proves all that it promises and that the council believe it will, Algona has been 'very lucky. Emmetsburg has $2,800 in her well, and wo give below how far she is with it. Blue Earth has $3,500 In a well, and Boone over $9,000. No one bpltoves Mr. Stephens has made' any money on his contract. Ho has had money invested in it over a year. While no one desires the council to deal on any but a business basis, or to do anything not wholly in the interest of tho town, everyone ought to feel that Mr. Stephens has done a good work, has shown a good deal of pluck in doing it, has mot with good deal of hard luck, and is on- titled to a good deal of credit. There is no occason for slandering him, at least. Tho Republican does itself little credit in continuing its course of misrepresenting and abusing Algona people on tho slightest provocation, a course that more than anything else has been responsible for tho outside at tacks that have been made upon us.

In fuct, it wus tho hail rather than tho wind thut did tho damuge. In places tho crops aro al- most'completely destroyed.

Everything combines to mako this n yeaf of jubilee With us, and the most natural thing in the world is to take advantage of the situation. The individual should got all he can, and the community and the whole northwest of Iowa should pull together now for the boom we are entitled to. The boomed districts out west have played out, Kansas is burned out again. Nebraska is below par. Dakota will be asking aid again this winter* while the western coast has nothing to offer farmers. At tho same time our eastern states have failed. Northern Iowa is the surest of crops and has tho cheapest land of any part of tho United States, Wo have never had a failure in tho northwest, and only once a partial failure. Why should not all our cheap lands bo taken and our county be filled up? This is tho year for us to E jll together and advertise ourselves, et us all join in seeing that northern Iowa gets tho sotting out it is entitled to, and In bragging n little where wo can honestly on the opportunities that are now open. WASHINGTON BULLETIN. After comparing tho fall in por cent, of yield for the various crops, ' the Washington report is: A full of 20 points indicates tho disaster which has befallen corn within thirty days. Tho cause is tho abnormally high tom- poraturo of tho central maize districts, with insufficiency of rainfall. Returns of tho drouth, which covers a brood area, and tho severity of tho effects produced aro moro general and depressing than tho signal service record of temperatures seems to Indicate. In Ohio there is groat difference between the northern and southern parts of tho state. Tho south tier of counties in Indiana and Illinois have likewise received greater than the northern. Tho condition is slightly higher in Missouri. In Kansas the severity of the drouth culminated. Iowa and Nebraska aro nearly in the status of tho Ohio valley, while Minnesota has tho highest average of 'the west. Wisconsin suffers slightly and Michigan still more from drouth. There has been a considerable reduction in the conditions of spring wheat, amounting to fully 11 points. It is less In the Dakotus than in other spring wheat districts. Tho average of condition is 80 in Wisconsin, 80 in Minnesota, 87 in Iowa, 71 in Nebraska, 88 in tho Dukotus. Tho latter is a decline of 7 por cent., owing to hot southern winds. Tho oats crop will bo one of vory low yield and probably poor quality. Another crop of grout importance, potulocs, has also been much damaged by tho drouth. A low rate of yield is assured. THE IOWA REPORT. Secretary Shaffer has tubulated the reports of about 1,100 crop correspondents, representing every county in the stato, showing condition of crops Aug. 1. Following aro tho averages of leading crops: Corn, 79} por cent.; sorghum, 82; flax, 05; millet, 85; potatoes, 00; sweet potatoes, 62; broom corn, 70; upples, 00; grapes, 83; pastures, 72. Average yield por aero of threshing: Winter wheat, 14} bushels; spring wheat, lit; oats, 30; winter barley, 24i; spring barley, 24; rye, 14}; clover seed, 21; timothy, 31; hay averages, H tons. Tho past week has materially Improved tho outlook for all growing crops, especially corn and late potatoes. With fairly good conditions In the remainder of the season this stato will produce 75 per cent, of an average corn crop. And prices will favor tho producers this year. They aro entitled to n benefit now und then. DROUTH IN ILLINOIS. The stato bulletin of the board of ng- riculturo for Illinois reports, Aug. 7: The lust month has been one of unusual drouth and high temperature, and much damage is being done to growing vegetation of every description. The corn crop and pastures have suffered in some portions of tho stale to an alarming extent. Out of tho 102 counties in Illinois only four full to com plain of tho lack of precipitation nnd its damaging effect on the growing crops. The effect on tho corn can be estimated from tho following conditions, as giving for Aug. 1, ns compared with an average: In the northern division the condition is reported at .68, in the central at ,79, und in tho southern nt .54—mnklng the stuto average ol about .07. The average of wheat harvested, in round numbers, was 1,300,000, and the total yield 14,560,000 bushels. The estimated urea seeded to outs is 3,850,000 acres, nnd tho uverugo yield por acre for the stato is 18 bushels, mulcing a total yield of 58,500,000 bushels us compared with 142,000,000 bushels lust yeur. DAKOTA WHEAT POOR, The Mlnneupolis Millers' Record says: Thero is ono complaint from tho wheat fields in tho north west that is universal. It is that the tops of tho heads have not filled. Thut will bo found on threshing to mean smaller yield than would commonly be estimated, and lo cal estimates are, from thut alone, likely to be cut down. Superficial examination of wheat fields does not usually take into account tho extent of such injuries. Tho stand of straw averages much bettor, nnd us the straw is what many people go by in estimating, the threshing will likely disappoint thorn. Tho whole Red river country is estimated by some to yield 15 to 18 bushels, by others 10 to 15 bushels, West of that it is figured ut five to 10 bushels for an average by different judges, Thero ia much moro wheat that hus u large yield ufid a small yield in tho sumo territory.

A goodly number of Algonians wont to Clear Lake Thursday and Friday to see Tennnnt's " King David" away from homo, and enjoy tho races. "King David" was in tho three-minute class, but one.heat was trotted in 2:30, tho fastest time mado on tho track. Two of tho horses in tho race were protested for having bettor records, und if it is proved, Mr. Tonnant will tako pood money. As it was, his horse mode ono heat in less than 2:40, which is a big improvement on anything yet done, and won applause from tho crowd. AH the races were very good, and especially so because the judges ran them for tho benefit of the crowd, nnd notthe jockeys. Mr. Kirk acted as starter, and he brought the drivers to time. He fined Borgitt of Humboldt $60 ono race, and sent his horse to the barn. In another race ho set him back for foul driving. Ho sot a running horse to fourth place for not taking its proper part of the track. He declared n heat of a trotting race off because one horse was not driven right, put on a new driver, and mado tho horses go over again. In fact he bossed the race track, saw that tho horses went their best, entertuined tho crowd, and pleased tho horsemen who want legitimate speed contests. He could do It partly because the track belongs to tho association, but mainly because it is in him. He is tho nerviest starter wo ever saw at a race. The races wore on the whole a success, and Clear Lako won much praise from all who were there. A FRESH box of Wheat Germ Meal wafers just received at the Casli Store.

Tho State Bank of Bancroft is to put up a brick building in tho spring where Campbell & Reynolds' hardware store now stands. Revs. Ward and Gale left for camp- meeting at Goldfleld last Monday morning, and Mrs. Ward followed on tho A Collar I'nlls Shooting. A local Interest attaches to the remarkable murder committed at Cedar Falls lust week, the father-in-law of the murdered man living at Lu Verne. Tho facts as brought out at tho examination show that a man by the name of Miller was drunk, his brother-in-law, Jones, was trying to get him home, and the deputy marshal in trying to arrest Miller shot Jones dead. The act was apparently without provocation, und tho marshal, Stingley, was bound over under charge of murder. It was feared ho would be lynched, hut extra care was taken to prevent a riot. Tho Lu- Verno News, In speaking of local matters, says: "Mr. Miller's folks received a telegram on Tuesday morning convoying tho sad tidings of tho death of their son-in-law, Deck Jones, and the injury of their son Albert nt Cedar Palls.
