Prof. Dodg* Mas Arrived to Segin Work in the Northern Iowa Normal— the Public Schools, The institute attendance has been Increased by ten new arrivals the past week and now numbers 183, tthich makes it, as has been Usual for several years, one of the notable teachers' meetings of this part of the state. The newcomers are: Algona, Bert Barr, F. B. McCall, Herbert Bancroft, Will. COvellj ftellle Taylor, Jatnes Chapin; Bancroft, Ida Moulton, Ida Swanson; iiUVerne, Adeila Gruhb, Edw. Conner. The week-has been one of hard work for the teachers, who put in from 8 until 12:80 in vigorous reviews of their school work, and then listen to lectures on physiology, and study physical culture in the afternoon. It has been Supt, Carey's idea to keep things moving, and she has undoubtedly succeeded. '"""' ""'"""" prof. Carroll has instructed in rhet- t passage and or i Ci arithmetic?, and grammar. Mrs. Rich has taken grammar and geogra- ' B. P. Heed reading and artthme- .--, -Jt E. Lumbar state government of Iowa, and Mrs. Wolfe orthography. The teachers in four divisions appear before each, and thus get a systematic review of their school work, The special feature of the institute has been the introduction of physical culture training, and Miss Goodrell has succeeded in awakening an interest that will long be felt in our schools. Her work is In line with the most advanced thought in education, and its introduction in the institute has In a very special manner commended itself to the teachers. No more attractive or beneficial new study has ever been given in our institutes, and as a teacher Miss Goodrell IB a marked success. • The institute proper closes tomorrow. Tho examinations are held Friday and Saturday, Supt. Snblii's Visit. Tho Congregational church was again crowded last evening in honor of tho presence of Hon. Henry Snbin, state superintendent, who gavo a solid, practical lecture on the teacher and teachers' work. Although very tired, Mr. Sabin spoko in an earnest and Interest- Ing manner, and his remarks were highly appreciated by teachers and visitors alike. Supt. Sabin has been an able and hard-working official for tho public schools, and is a man specially fitted for tho position ho now holds. Iiocturo Announcements. Prof. P. D.

His sister comes with him, his wife having died a few years ago. He brings three children, all boys. He takes hold of the work of advertising the normal school ut once, and will push it. He has made a most favorable impression on all he has met, and will we believe make a big success of the school. Prof. Dodge has telegrams this morning which enable him to announce his assistants in the normal. Prof. H. B. McCollum comes from Central City, Neb., where he bus for some years been engaged as principal of the city schools. He is known to be a competent instructor. Miss Jessie B. Johnson of Newton, 111., will be at the head of the music department. Sho Is a graduate of tho St. Louis College of Music, and is thoroughly fitted for tho position. Miss Reeve, a sister of Mrs. Clock of this place, will act us ono of the assistants. She, ulso, is limply quulified. Mrs. Wolfe, well known hero in school work, will continue her connection with the normal. Opening of tlie Public Schools Prof. Dixson desires the teuchers of the public schools to meet him at 3 p. m. Saturday at his office room, preliminary to the opening of schools, which comes the following Monday, Sept. ]. IN AND ABOUT THE OITY. C, P. Dorland, In o private letter to citizens hero, gives some personal news of interest. He says fruit Is booming this year, and that everybody Is In fruit in California. Ho Bold his grapes for 875 an acre on tho vines. He says thut Thos. Barley has put in 10 acres of oranges, and that ho is going to put in 100 acres. Ho closes with a profound und truthful philosophical reflection: My observation of people leads me to think that it is very immaterial where one lives, just BO he is satisfied with his location, and I see grumblers everywhere, for there aro some who aro discontented In this country." It might be said that there aro even grumblers in Kossuth this year, but they are awful scarce. A catalogue is out for the new Sioux City university. Prof. Gilchrist has several pages devoted to setting forth the merits of the diductic course, which opens Sept. 0, und of which ho has charge. In tho law department we notice thut A. L. Hudson Is to lecture on " Evidence," and thut A. F. Call is to lecture on "Legal Study and Ethics." Tho school embraces law, medicine, di- ductic, collegiate, and business courses, ouch fully equipped with a faculty. Rev. R, C. GlftSB is professor of mental and moral philosophy. Wo learn that Herman Rantzow is to be added to tho fire department. Herman's execution with his hoo Monday night excited general admiration. It is not always good policy to smash out windows but when they need smashing Herman is equal to the tusk. The lire had scarcely got under headway before he hud all the windows broken on the lower story, and by jumping had hit spmo ubovu. It wus the most entortuin- ing feature of tho /ire. Progress on tho water works is qulot but steady, The council got their plans from Mr. Turner ten dnys ago, and already U5 requests have come from contractors for them. The bids ure to be in next Monday, the contract will bo speedily let, und business will begin. Mr. Turner wus In town Monday, and Is confident thut he can underbid all competition and that he will get tho contract, Ho is a good man. Both flouting mills hava boon shut down the post few weeks undergoing the annual repairs, and both ure again running. Itfstobesuid to the credit of these homo Institutions that they have kept the price of flour very low. Minnesota flour Is sold lu Algonu at 15 and SO cents lees u, sack than in many other places, while Algona flour, equally an good, le sold still cheaper. Tho mills nave all tho business they can do. Our worthy postmaster occupies a column und a half In tho last Republican to oxwosa Ws opinion that tho UPPER DES MOINES in a liar by tho watch. That could have boon done in five Hues more effectively. For a, sorry lot of slush wo have noes, nothing Hko his article before, and while it uhom throughout u desire to slander My, "' ',ens, it is so puerile p to ho \iftt ftt am EdeM thlfd. Tne tl^ done 811 srinttriet counted, and it fret Unlikely thai Mt\ Cooke *ill be chosen on the state team which id to contest in Wisconsin. We desire to.cftll special attentloft to the notice of J. B. Jones' short-born cattle. Not one of these full-blood cows should leate the county. If they are kept fight here at home they will make us the best Stock county ih northern Iowa in a few yeafft. We don't want to give Mf. Jones any free adter- tisitig, but having got full-bloods amongst us, we shall adopt a suicidal policy to let them depart. The Resstguie family are again before the public, having hod Mrs. Peter Johnson arrested for an alleged assault. She was brought before Squire Taylor, but a change was taken to Squire Clarke and the cose then continued till Sept. 9 by consent Of attorneys. The trouble is of the same nature as that Which brought these parties into court some time ago. The people ifl the Grover neighborhood in Portl&ttd are preparing for a big grove meeting next Saturday and Sunday. It will be held in the grove near the Grover school house. Rev. Pratt and all tho neighboring Metho- 1 take part, attd an dlst preachers will _____ ,-—.-, _________ enjoyable meeting is promised, in one of the pleasantest parts of the county. Harvoy Mathers had an experience in town with a kicking horse lost week, The first kick brought one hind foot over tho box of the cart right in front of Harvey's shine, and every time the horse struggled that foot hit the shin bone. Harvey got out over the back of the cart with more agility than grace, and still limps when no thinks of It. The UPPER DES MOINBS has no time, space, or disposition to waste on personal quarrels. It is a newspaper merely, interested just now in booming Kossuth county. How would it be, by the way, to have qulot politics and a business boom one season V Why not all put our energies into all getting ahead? A little excitement was occasioned in Union township lost weok over a domestic difference in a family in which tho hired man took the wife's part. Tho husband was too much for the hired man, who got mad enough to threaten to shoot. He was taken to Bancroft and bound over to keep the peace. The reading room is to bo opened in the Galbralth block next Saturday, and will bo ready for the public Sept. 6. This will bo a central location, and as the society has the best current literature, it should be liberally encouraged. A good reading room at little expense can be maintained with a little support. Green corn proved too much for a number of fine milch cows belonging to Dan Long, last weok, They overate, ng, and four died of colic before anything could bo done for them. Their hides alone brought any return, and as hides are on the free list, that didn't amount to much, The Naudaln Bros, are alive to business and will have in a coal yard this fall. Their scales, etc., are all in shape, but they are having a little trouble In settling on tholr location. They are good, reliable men, and will no doubt prosper in business. Peter J. Walker reports another tree hit by lightning near tho ground. It was in a grove near his house, and was struck last week. Why Is It that lightning is not attracted to tho tops? This Is worthy of attention by our scientists. W. B. Quartan had a birthday Sunday, and Mrs. Quarton, unknown to him, invited in some bachelor friends to dinner. They all agreed that they would like to see W. B. have frequent birthdays, Tho Lu Verne people have donated the ground to John Wallace for a creamery, and ho will build at once. Lu Verne is a good point, and a creamery will bo a big addition to her business. Algona is bound to entertain the teachers. Lost year Lessing's store burned down while they were in, and tho year before wo had a fire somewhere. Fire works is our specialty. Bancroft has hired hor teachers. Prof. Doderer is principal, Katie Byrne, Lutio Wallace, and Minnie Taylor are assistants. Prof. Doderer Is a stato normal school graduate. We were mistaken, last week, In announcing that Mr. Woodworth 's stay In Bancroft would be temporary. He says he will put in now soods, and assist the boom up there. Services will bo reopened at tho Congregational church next Sunday, morning und evening. Evening services ut 7:30, Rev, Davidson has spent his vacation in Algona, Our original package men uve in a quandary. Mr. Coonan owns his building, und Mr. Cook has a year's lease on his, and what to do with them is the question. A Wesley man writes in Sunday's Register In defence of country hotels In reply to the complaint of a traveling man. Wesley holds her own In the discussion. E. B. Eddy was down from Buffalo Forks Monday, and reported the new Methodist church there as already raised. It Is to bo a fine building when done. Rev. Whitfield conducted the funeral exercises of a little son of Mr. Ericksen at the Bush school house Monday. Tho remains were buried at Irvlngton. Tho tent over by Grove's barn is not for the circus. It is John's lecture tent as he travels over the ppuntry giving instructions about the horse. The Kossuth County bank and Laden dorf's restaurant have had new sidewalks put in the past week. Their example is worthy of imitation, Miss Lenotte Wilson is drilling the Congregational children for their operetta, and it will be put on in first-class stylo. Rev. H. H. Morse of Rockford, Iowa, will preach In tho Congregational church next Sabbath morning and evening, The military boys all join In praising Sam, Patterson as a cook. They lived high ut Spirit Lake, thanks to his care. The lumber Is on the ground for the new bridge south of town on the Long road. The work will bo done soon. J. J. Wilson has taken away his dooryard fence lately, and thereby added to tho appearance of his surroundings. Earl Stephens was taken very sick while at the Spirit Lake encampment and was obliged to come home. Tho circus comes tomorrow. I/very- one speaks well of It, and Its cheapness oh to kdwuth No* Mas * 'County Alliance— —total Miscellany. One of the great piwtfcimea of Mil- tary encampments Is reouiting new men. lliey atwAJr« cotae its to SOB the parade and are greeri enough to bite at the bait of bearing a blue coat. The boys recruited several at Spirit Lake. They marched one at double quick into the lake up to his neck. They put another through the courses with a knapsack full of gravel on his back. But th6 greenest looking one that appeared was hot so green. He donned a SioUJt City company uniform, shouldered one of their best muskets, and trotted around awhile. All Of a sudden just as he Was out at the end of his beat instead of " about face" he started on a i-un, and got away, and the Sioux City company was short a valuable outfit. It turned out that the recruit was a member of another company, and he had lots of fun before he returned his uniform and riflo. A County Alliance Orgnntzed. To the Editor: Please publish a few lines in your widely-circulated paper to let the farmers in general, and the farmers* alliances in particular, in Kos- Butii county know that a meeting of delegates from the local alliances was held in the Frlnk school house, tTnlon township, on Saturday, the 28rcl inst., at which time and place a county alliance was organized In duo form, with the following officers, viz.: President, W. T. Bourne; vice president, L. C. Potter; secretary, W. J. Bourne; treasurer, E. Cook; county corresponding secretary and organizer, wm. Johnson. It was resolved that each local alliance in the county is entitled to send three delegates to the county alliance, which will hold its next meeting; in Algona. on the 13th day of September next, at 1 o'clock p. m,, at the court house hall. Farmers are all cordially invited to attend. WM. JOHNSON. The lUverltiud Cases. Whiting S. Clarke of Dos Molnes is visiting his brothers, Goo. E, and E. H., and recreating in our salubrious climate. Ho is kept pretty busy with his law practice, ono of his chief cases being the river land controversy in which he has assisted Atty. Gon. Stone. In speaking of the caso ho suys ho feels hopeful of the appeal now pending in the United States supremo court. The chief point made by thorn before Justice Shiras was a now ono to the whole dispute, and while the justice stated in his opinion that it was important ho said that the supreme court was the ono to act upon it, as it had rendered so many decisions already on a different theory. Mr. Clarke holds that the company never legally received the grant from the state. Every body hereabouts will hope to seo him and the attorney general successful In convincing the supremo court, and In securing a reversal of the whole line of decisions by which the settlors have been defrauded. _ Mrs. I'll! Very .Low. Mrs. J. 1C. Fill was taken seriously ill some two weeks ago while visiting at Mrs. A. P. Hall's, and sinco that time has been subject to sinking spoils. Her age, and the after effects of the grip, which she Has novor overcome, made her recovery doubtful, but four of hoi- death was not serious until Saturday, when all the members of her family wore sent for. Mrs. Haunt of Spencer has been here a week, Mrs. Lynn of Milwaukee arrived Sunday morning, Mrs. Hathaway and John Fill came soon after. Mrs. Fill is 74 years of ago, and was born in Baltimore. The family came to Kossuth county March 26, 18(50, being among the earlist. They located on tho farm .near Irvingtoo they have since owned, and on which they have lived until 1872, when Mr. Fill opened his shop in Algona. The family followed in 1875, and have since lived in town. Missionary Mooting. A large audience was out Sunday evening to attend the exorcises of the ladies' missionary society at the Methodist church. Tho meeting was ably presided over by Mrs. Chas. Parker, Mrs. Rev. Whitfield read tho bible selection, and Mrs. Rov. Fuller offered tho invocation. Besides exorcises by the children, and tho mito box part of the programme, a very able paper on missionary work by Mrs, Rev, Pratt was read by Miss May Clarke, Mrs. Pratt being ill and unable to attend, Mrs. Dr. Barr also gave a fine selection. Rev. Whltfiold In reviewing the work in Algona reported that in his less than one year hero tho church has provided for $1,100 of debt, paid all expenses, and given $200 for missions. This is a remarkable showing and is highly creditable to Rov. Whitfield and to tho church. , e t)es MolfceS at 6:16, afld atrive at La- VePfie ift H:0ls IFvlsfton, 11:21; Algo- tta, 11:84; Bofi, ll:6g BaWblt, 12:10. The tfaift will rvra Tuesday, Wednesday, IThurtday, the Pfaot That the bopulatiott of Kossuth county has very largelt increased in the past few years is evidenced by the large and constantly increasing trade at the new wigwam. That Institution looks more like some great jobbing house that is seen in the large cities than an ordinary retail establishment. The proprietor informs us that trade has been unusually large the present season.-21 ' Koasuth" In AlRonn.

The Spirit Lake Beacon In reporting tho meetings gives Company P special mention; " Though tho youngest company in the regiment, Company F of Algona makes u creditable appearance. Cupt. Cooke is evidently u happy selection for the position." It reports the governor's review, in which our readers will be interested; " Tuesday was governor's day, und the weather was simply superb. In point of attendance and interest this was tho day of the week. Tho governor and staff arrived Monday evening and wus quartered at the Orleans.

Then ensued some fine movements on the part of the troops stato und national, after which the governor und stuff rode oil the field, followed by soldiers and citizens. This imposing military pageant wus witnessed by several thousand pepsaus, who manifested a deep interest in tho proceedings." Immense Yields of Crops bf All Kinds and Good Prices tat Cause— Read the Record for Yourself. Aug. fi5.— Special Correspondence: Bancroft, the metropolis of northern KoBsuth, this fall is one of the liveliest to*ns in the state. We hear it remarked daily by strangers that it IB the liveliest town they ever sn<v. Everything la hustle, bustle, Everybody ia busy— merchants, mechanics, prfr fesalonal men, stock buyers, grain deal- era. It is nothing uncommon to see 160 to 200 teama on our streets in one day. Our banka are paying out to farmers for stock and grain $3,000 to HOOO Our farmers come to town with smilea on their faces so broad that we hardly know them, .while the merchanta meet them with smiles equally broad. The farmer relates with an air of pride of his bounteous crops and the immense prices he is receiving for the same, while the latter takes it all in and chuckles to himself on the prospect of making big sales and reaping a bountiful harvest. It is not ah unusual thing to see a farmer come to town with a load of grain and receive money enough for it to buy a hew wagon. Some of the farmers report oats as yielding 40 to 50 bushels per acre, while it is not uncommon to near others, of equal veracity, report double that amount. Barley Is yielding from 40 to 60 bushels per acre. Flax was principally sown on new breaking, and the yield is from 8 to 16 bushels, and of very fine quality. Not much wheat has boon threshed yet, but the yield is fnlr and quality good. The highest prices thus far paid are 87 cents for wheat; 83 cents for oats, 40 cents for barley, and $1.22 for flax. Corn is looking fine, and with tho absence of frost for two weeks longer wo will have the largest crop over raised In Kossuth. Geo. C. Call, who has 400 acres of flax near Bancroft, commenced threshing last Friday, and threshed 210 bushels in five hours, which we think is pretty good work. Farmers, as a rule, have only commenced to thresh, most of the grain having boon stacked, yet to show the liberal receipts of grain at this point, I would say, although we have three grain buyers bore, and competition Is sharp, wo understand that W. E. Jordan alone has bought over 12,000 bushels so far this month, Our little city is growing rapidly. Tho now residence of Oscar Pearson Is already assuming proportions, the now Catholic church is enclosed and makes a very imposing structure, Geo. W. Smith is building an addition of 24 feet to tho corner drug store, J. G. Edwards is going to build a new store, our streets are being put in good shape, and thus go on tho improvements. Our citizens are a liberal, prosperous, energetic, happy class of people, iind in tho near future wo expect to see Bancroft the metropolis of northern Kossuth. From Ono Quarter Section. Goo. W. Ilunna has a quarter section of land under cultivation from which ho has received §500 worth of ront grain this year, says tho News. Last year ho received $425 as his share of tho crops. Flvo hundred dollars for one-third of tho crops! Five hundred dollars for one-third of tho crop raised on a quarter section is not ii bad showing for Kossuth county li-.nd, nnd when it is taken into consideration that this tract of land cost Mr. Hnnna only 51,000 a fow years since, it will bo seen that a good rate of interest may bo derived from such investment. Land that is tho source of such an income as wo have noted ought to be worth at least $40 an acre, and yet you can buy such land all the way from S10 to $25, according to location and improvement. All Itight Around Wesley. WESLEV, Auc. 20.— Special Correspondence: There has boon but little grain threshed around hero yet; what has been is yielding well. Oats go at from 40 to 60 bushels per acre, wheat 12 to 18. Tho (lux crop IB just being harvested, and ip very good, with a large acreage out, Hay is a eood crop and farmers and hay makers are taking advantage of the good price it is bringing. Butts & Ward received on an average last weok 50 tons a day of No. 1 upland, for which they paid §2.75 a ton. Wheat is bringing 75(a!80c; outs, 25@ 28c; flux, SU2@1. 10; barley, 28@38c.

He suys he shall have 225 bushels at tho least, all from 27 trees which occupy less than two acres of ground. He has had $1 a bushel for his 100 bushels, making a not return already for his land of $80 an acre. This probably answers whether we can raise apples or not. A Corn ITrcnlc. Perry Burlingamo says Kossuth is bound to raise corn. When the ears don't come one place they do another. To support it he has a stalk with an ear growing out of the top where tho tassel should be. There is no tassel, but a well-formed and healthy ear of corn over six feet high, and the stalk has Can A Great Manager Begaft of the Exposition, which opens Aug. 27 and closes Oct. 4, has secured a great attraction in Pain's "Last Days of Pompeii," the moat wonderful pyrotechnics,! olaplfty ever seen in the northwest.

HOBTHWEST IOWA AHEAD, Crop r.uporta and Ilullotlils Tell tho Tale Beyond Question. Tho crop reports show everything in good condition in this section. While in some sections it is reported that frost did damage last week, nothing of that kind happened In this vicinity. All crops are in good condition, while hay is very heavy and corn promising a big yield. THE STATE REPORT. The drouth is broken, and abundant rains in the arid districts gave a green hue to pastures, revived wilted vegetation everywhere, nnd added a brighter color to the reports of our not over- sanguine staff of weather-crop observers. Com is doing nicely, and there Is no visible occasion as yet to lower the estimate in previous issues of this bulletin, that Iowa will this year produce 75 per cent, of an average crop of that staple. The only hazard Is, tho possibility of an untimely frost. Potatoes are greatly improved, and tho Sresent outlook is that the stato will ring forth 60 per cent, of an average crop of that useful vegetable. It Is more likely to exceed than fall below that figure. THE GOVERNMENT BULLETIN. WASHINGTON, Aug. 23.—The weather crop bulletin says: Tho weather during the past week In Minnesota und Dakota was too cool for lute crops. Although the wheat has been nearly all cut, some fields of late sown in the extreme north have been injured by frosts. Light frosts also extended over the extreme northern portions of Iowa, but caused no material damage. The recent rains greatly improved tho condition of crops throughout the corn belt extending from Ohio westward to Kansas and Nebraska, and in this section tho condition of corn and potatoes are much Improved and the ground in good condition for plowing.

The State Normal School. The Iowa Stato Normal School is entering upon a new era. For tho past fourteen years, it has boon kept on trial by tho state, having no certain Income, nor any professional recognition of Its work. The lust general assembly wisely changed all tho unfortunate conditions by giving the school a permanent iuooivto and grunting professional veoognltlon to Its work by authorizing the state board of educational examiners to grant state cortflcutes and state diplomas to graduates. The school opens its fifteenth year in September with unusual prospects for a large attendance, with nearly ono hundred graduates for graduation in its senior classes and with the confidence of the people of the state. It now provides work suitable for common school touchers, for high school graduates and for college graduates. It will greatly Improve the specialties of music, elocution and physical culture the next term so that instruction in these lliws will be of superior rank, A specialist has been secured to instruct iu elocution, a graduate of the Phlla- delplUu sohool of oratory, one of the ' esv iastruotpvs in this art in the woat.
