Ho* the flre originated is unknown. It began in the south end of the barn in the stallion's stall, and where the wind fanned it rapidly. Efforts to save the horse due of the finest iii the west, were Un availing, The danger to other build ings kept all hands busy, So that no at tempt was made to save smaller articles The fire ran the length of the building in a short time, and soon it was ft mass of ruias. The flre company arrived U put water oa the burning grain and some part was saved. The loss, however, Is nearly total. The building was insured. The other property was not and $4,000 will not probably make good the destruction. It waa lucky thatth wind did not blow the flames into thi large hay and feeding stables, or Algona would have suffered a loss that sh could ill afford. Mr. Lund's fine im provements are one of the noticeabl features of this vicinity, and their des tructlon would be a public calamity. IK AJTD ABOUT THE OITT. Bradley & Nicoulln have had three men out all summer selling buggies, ant now they have adopted a new scheme Frank has bought a big tent, and las week shipped it and a car load of bug gles to Spencer, where ho will store am sell. .This is the first-car of wagon that was ever shipped from here and i worthy of note on that account. Gib Button and C. P. Calkins make Spence their headquarters, and trail bugglo from there into the neighboring coun try, and sell as they have done here When that section is supplied they wll move their tent and strike a new place Algona in the meantime is the seat o operations. Should business increas S. A. Thompson will also go west. The old advice about "keeping you shirt on" has a new meaning to Win Bossingham, which, his friends wor not slow to refer to yesterday. H< came up Monday to stop over night ant take the early train to the fair, bu somehow in the hurry of dressing hi forgot the "biled shirt" he had la out to wear over his everyday flannel and was well started for the depot be fore he thought o" it. The time it took him to go back and put it on made him late for the train, and he and Mr. Ja dan, after a lively'run, had to wait fo the noon train. They will be thankfu when they hear the last of the odven ture with the shirt. Thos. P. Cooke is now to be enrollec among the shooting fraternity. A DesMoines he maintained his recorc sufficiently to be selected on the stat team, and with Capt. Upson of Hamp ton, will represent the Sixth regiment He went to Milwaukee Monday evening there to be put In practice until nex Friday, when the inter-state contest i to be held at Camp Douglas, 150 mile northwest of the city. Iowa expect third or fourth place in the contest no having had the practice of the othe states. Thos. Henderson is moving the ol> Durant drug store for the fifth time It now leaves the main streets and re tires to the rear of the Tennant house The little knobs on the front that usec to be the marvel of Algona architectur will no longer be open to public gaze When the building was built it waa stately structure and was put up to las in a frame of solid oak. An easy wai to estimate the changes going on is t try and realize the fact that not long ago this was the best building in town A marriage was celebrated in th clerk's office Monday, Squire Clarke officiating. The parties were tw thrifty German residents of Kamsay Ben Bruns and Annie Dammar. A the bride could not understand Englisl very well Robt. Chrischilles was cullei in and interpreted the language of th code, and the county attorney being also present, Squire Clarke feels satis fied that the ceremony is binding Squire Taylor has not yet had an op portunity to try his new form. The more Bro. Starr views the cos of his benevolent appeal to the suprem court to settle the law of appeal on county printing, the more he wants thi other fellow to appeal next time. W< hear that the county is being beseigcc by the various proprietors, managers editors, etc., of the Republican offering maps and other like inducements to ge names. One .man even re ports a chance to get the Republican and a map for 7<. cents a year. Bro. Starr shouldn't ge excited so early in the season. Dr. Shore closed his office Saturday and is no longer an Algona physician He will pack his goods and start fo New York some time next week an< spend the next six months or more there in taking post graduate work i his specialty, which will be the eye am ear. During his stay in Algona he has made many friends who will regret hi departure, and who will wish him al success in his profession, wherever h may locate. A location has been secured for th new Episcopalian church which is t be erected at once. The lot lies be tween the residences of John Hookar and O. C. Walker, and is as handsom as any in town. The church will be central to town and accommodate espe cially the north side. The lot was pur chased of Mr. Heckart for $300, he U have the use of it, and also to retain a two-rod strip off the rear of the full lot The open air meeting at the Grover farm last Saturday and Sunday was very largely attended. The weathei was pleasant and the people turned ou for miles around. The Sunday meeting was very large. If those who wen got no benefit at the exercises, they a feast drove through a beautiful part o the county, and saw some great changes In "Sod town" since a few years ago. Two neighbors in Prairie township were before Squire Clarke lost week re lating their mutual grievances. The} told their story and then listened to a timely lecture from the justice on the merit of minding their own business and stopping gossiping and quarreling. One, Bosonmeyer, nad been guilty of a technical assault and was fined the costs, which he paid. Dr. Sayers narrowly escaped a serious injury yesterday. He was laboring for the benefit of a suffering equine which evidently did not, appreciate the favor, for it reached out its hind foot and struck the doctor on the knee, mis- ing a big lump and knocking him across the barn. Luckily ho was not hit on the bone, and not seriously hurt. The annual meeting of the Womans' Christian Temperance union will be hold in the reading room in the-Gul- braith block on Dodgb street on Friday afternoon at half past 2 o'clock. Officers are to bo chosen for the coming year, and other business is to bo transacted. All members, and oil In terested are urged to be present.

Sabih paid our public school building a very nigh cornplhnent on his recent visit. He said that he had not been ih a finer one in the state, either in point ol looks or arrangement. Outsiders without exception admire our school building. At the coming meeting of the editors at Webster City, J.. W* Hinchon leads a discussion on some phases of newspa* per management, and Harvey Ingham has a paper on the "Newspaper and Politics." The meeting is next Friday and Saturday. Landlord Tennant is still at work on his hotel. Now he is digging out a big cellar under the whole house, and is putting the office building south of it back for a laundry room. The change will add greatly to the convenience ol his house. C. JU. Doxsee is getting to be quite a Jersey stock proprietor. He has just completed a trade by which he ex* changes full blood bulls with Richardson Bros, of Davenport, and brings to the county one of the best animals in their herd. Another new residence is to bo noted this week. Manager White ol Paul's lumber yard is building a, 20x26 foot house near the yard lor his ..own use. It will be a roomy and convenient place lor him, and a big addition to that part of town. Manager Nicoulin has secured Warren Noble's dramatic company for the lair week. They come with full band, in their own palaco car, and play four nights. Their appearance will add materially to the entertainment 'of tho week. . Several calls wero made last week for extra copies ot the paper to send awp,y to friends. Theve is no better service anyone can render than to scatter papers with mention of the advantages of the town and county.

Dave Haggard's fame as an auctioneer continues to be spread abroad. He has sales this month in five counties, and how many more he may add is open to conjecture. The month is still young. The beautiful "Daisies Rebellion" will be given at the court house Friday evening. The cantata has been gotten up at the expense of labor and money, and a fine entertainment is promised. The rain which was heavy at Algona Monday, degenerated into hall further north, and several corn fields were stripped. Stock was driven about and some other damage is reported. With two such moral agencies as the reading room and the UPPER DES MOINES side by side, there is no reason why Dodge street should not bo the most reputable part of the city. It is reported that Jud. Healy lost a team of horses near Burt, Monday, by a stroke of lightning. As the story is another team hitched to the same wagon escaped, E. S. Hammast, an architect of Davenport, is preparing plans and specifications for the now Episcopalian church. Work will be begun in a week or ten days. ' M. L. Clarke has been very sick for some time. Last week a surgical operation was performed by Dr. Shore, and the prospects are for speedy recovery. Marriage licenses have been issued to John Ostrum and Mary Anderson, John Wagner and Lucy Schumacher, Jay N. Wheeler and Opal Sarchett. . Several very brilliant shooting stars were seen in the early evening Friday. Some thought one came through and struck the ground. John Reed's store and Sponberg's tailor shop have been decorated the past week by the painters and much improved in appearance. Rev. F. M.. Smith will be at home to preach at the Baptist church next Sunday as'usual. He has been visiting in Minnesota. J. J. Wilson has a live agent at Sexton in J. E. Mclnroe, He is one of the active young business men of the county, O. F.

WILSON, from the Outskirts Of town, as far as eye can reach, is an unbroken stretch of as fine country as the sun shines on, and & country covered, tdo, with fine houses, big barns, and expensive Improvements. When the railroad went through ten years ago there was unbroken prairie away'from the river. NOW the road from Algona is lined With fences, and the signs of cultivation are as conspicuous as lit the southern part of the state. But Burl is not confined to its immediate surroundings for trade and is rapidly developing into a live business center, and its business mob fire awake to their opportunities. New buildings are go- Ing up, trade is lively, the co-operative creamery is a great success, two fine churches have been erected, and everybody is full of enterprise. -Two churches costing $1,400 and $1,600 in a small town speak for themselves. But Burt's brag is on her creamery, Last fall 06 farmers put in $50 apiece and built a $3,000 creamery. The plan was mode by Fargo & Co., Who fur nished the machinery, and it is a mod el. The latest appliances were secured and a young Illinois butter maker Fred. Wilcox, came out to take charge He told the managers that • what hi, butter fell short of Elgin prices they might take out of his wages, and Elgin prices is what Burt butter sells at. The quality of milk which the farmers send in may be judged from the state ment that five pounds of butter is modi from 100 pounds of milk. The incorpo- rators'of the factory got 40 cents a hun dred for their milk the first month, 4: cents the second, and last month, Jul; 22 to Aug. 21, they received 70 cents Those not part owners pay 10 per cent for making. The creamery is making about 400 pounds a day now, and is a growing and prosperous institution. In Mr. Wilcox it has a manager not ex celled anywhere, and ho is ably assist ed by Charlie Cook. The now improvements now being made are Dr. McCormack's drug store and a 28x48 foot barn with wings by Fred. Nicholson. Tho doctor has late ly received a pension of $300 with $12 a month, and is spending it in improving Nicholson is going to engage in thi horse business, and will have a fim barn. Last fall Postmaster Easterly built a largo office, fitted with th'o mos improved boxes and in every way cos mopolltan. A new butcher shop is go ing in soon, and it is rumored that E L. Ward will put in a store. Nicholson &Buell have a large general store Geo. E. Marble likewise, O'Niel t Kerr and Mrs. McDonald divide th hardware and lumber business, C. P Stowe runs a big hay barn, Fred. Shaf or and C. P. Stowe are village black smiths,., while J. B. Corko tends t the Northwestern and makes hlmsel generally useful as land man, otc There are no pleosanter men to mee anywhere than any and all of these and to them and D, A. Buell, who somewhat of a Burt man himself, w are indebted for a pleasant visit. A BASKET TAOTOBY. A Desirable Institution Within Al Bonn's Reacu nnd Easily Secured A business proposition was made our citizens last week which is stil open, and which bears evory probabill ty on its face of being a good thing Geo. P. Clarke of Gary, S. D., is th prospector, and spent a day in tow talking with our citizens. If the people will take shares in a capital stock o $5,000 amounting to $2,400, his compan, will put in $2,600 and run a factory wit a capacity of 800 bushel boskets o larger daily. Or the citizens may hav throe-fourths of the stock, and the. will take one-fourth. The baskets ar made of elm, basswood, oak, etc., wood easily furnished hero. They are a staple product, and the local morke alone is considerable. They can be made at a good profit. Mr. Clarke was called home by a county seat fight, be fore any action was taken, but the pro jeet was favorably considered. Mr. A A. Call has talked with many busines men, and is convinced that the plan i feasible and desirable. Something should be done, and wo believe Algoni will lose an opportunity if she lets a factory pass which promises as well as this - _ Tho Prnlrlo I^awn Herd, Having sold my home farm I now of fer my entire herd of short-horn cattle at private sale, in lots to srit purchas ore, on the most liberal terms.

The fact that al' premiums Will be paid ih full Oil the grounds, avoiding all delay and dis counts, is encouraging to exhibitors and in many departments there is al ready promise of big displays, in every department there should be a f ul display, not only because the premiums are large enough to pay for It, but be cause this is the year that the count; has something special to show.'

That IB the One Adopted for the Al gona Water WorkB—Tlio C'ontrnc Let to Harrison <fc Ilawley for 97, 850. The water works arc again undo headway, and now with the prospect o something being done. Tho bids wer opened Monday afternoon, a big discus sion followed, an evening meeting wo* held, and In the end the council let th contract adopting the standpipe place of the tank system, Four bid were in covering both plans. Tho were: Fairbanks, Morse & Co., stanc pipe $8,439, tank $6,660; Harrison Hawloy, standplpe $7,850, tank $6,866 U. S. Mill Co., standpipe $9.990, tan $7,650; F, Turner, standpipo $9,000 tank $7,000. The bids put the Fairbanks, Morse Co, tank the cheapest, and the Harr. son & Hawloy standpipo the cheapest the difference being about $1,20( Which to accept was a disputed ques tlon, and on an Informal ballot in th afternoon the vote was four, to three fo the tank. In the evening it was fou to three for the standpipe. Tho ques tion was debated pro and con with vig or, the bidders being present and pre senting both sides fully, and the resul was reached after most thorough dellb oration. Durability was made the find test, and the council thought the $1,20 extra cost was more than componsatet by tho iron pipe, while in respect tc water pressure they thought the differ ence would not be marked. Tho men representing the various firms dlfferec ID their opinions, probably as sultec their business, and it may be accepted that whatever is done is largely an ex perlment. After the vote was taken tho council awarded tho contract to Mr. Hawloy, who was present, his blc being much tho lowest. It is believec that a remarkably good contract ha been mode, and Mr. Hawloy gave as his reason for being so low the desire of his firm to get into Iowa, where they have not yet done work. After the contract was let the coun oil arranged far eight-inch in place o six-inch mains, a very desirable change Notice is published this week for bids on the bonds, and business will begin al once on the work.

Of Mrs. Wolfe's attainments it is needless to speak, as she Is well khowii to the people of the county.

What IB Doing Done by a lloiiovolcn Man In DleKlnaon County, Our readers have seen references the four-section farm bought by Danle Pierce in western Dickinson count near Esthorville, on which to locate hi orphans' school, A full description i given In the last Vindicator, which w reproduce. It shows how vast an on terprise Mr, Pierce has undertaken and how much it will mean for thi part of lown. The Vindicator says " The four sections of fine land, fou and one-half miles west of here, upo which the school is to be located, to gether with tho large and costly build ings and other improvements soon to b added, are all to be paid for out of th private funds of Mr. Pierce. The barn now being erected has ground floo area of 60x170 feet. The posts aro 24 loot, with an immense mow capacity in the roof, The whole mow will contain 600 tons of hay, The barn is built in sections like a bridge, so that the wbol ground floor will bo entirely clear o posts or other obstructions. The pur iosoisn}so to add to this immense Structure oa occasion may demand The main building will contain ubou /he same ground area as tho barn, bu of course different in shape, and will be jut a two-story structure This build ng will be divided into living voi ind for the present will also furnlsl •oom for the school. In a short time, •owever, Mr. Pierpe intends to oreot a school building propoy, large enough to accommodate {Ue 600 boys which is to >e the present limit of the school Fhese are only primary facts. When ihe institution is in full operation it will require an army of employes and a arge corps ot teachers, it wilt have ts own light, heat, aud water system, t will cost at least $100,000 tv year to meet its running expenses.

Afcd the Best dt It h tftftf the f 41*8 Aft Aft f ru4-RsporB ffom Out Neighbors. Sept. 1,—Sjfeelal Corre*>ndefiee: There are 'f6# localities in he northwest attended with a more apld development in settlement and agricultural attainments than the northern part of Kossuth county, and n this section no part has done better han Hebron township. Hebron may late been, and doubtless has been, overlooked and long neglected, but it needed only the magic touch of a few ifird, industrious hands to show its possibilities. Only industry and right management is necessary to make Heiron township one of the best iu Kossuth county. This impetus has been jlven within the last eighteen months jy a class of honest, industrious farm' ers who have turned the sod, and bar vest time has brought thorn abundttn returns, and Wherever the soil has been ,ried all mother earth has blossomed as ihe rose. Tho quality ot the soil being considered, the cheapness of real estate :n this locality is phenomenal, Think of land renting for 10 cents per acre for imy purposes and the renter selling thi bay at $7 on track, as is now done Think also of purchasing land at $8 pei acre and raising 10 to 12 bushels pel acre of flax from the same, and selling at $1.20 per bushel, as farmers are now doing! Such certainly is hot the lane where farmers ought to starve or tin poor man fail to obtain a home of hii own, When we came into this locality one year ago settlements in Hebron were scarce, especially so in tho south ern part. B. A. Richardson on section 33 could scarcely find 'another roof be side his own in sight. Now ho is sur rounded by neighbors. B. A, is rustler, and has had much to do wltl settling up this country with an hones and industrious yeomanry. He has a start toward as fine a farm as one wouli wish to see. We might mention man; now settlers who have anchored in He bron within the lost twelve months and praise tho prospect which they have opened out before them. The flowing wells in this district ar a feature not to be overlooked. Man; are the exclamations of surprise am admiration wo have heard from thos who for the first time -have come t look upon these fountains which sem forth this stream of finest water in end [ess abundance. Perhaps Hebron ma} again present her claims to tho public but no more today. Harvest Beports. Comfort Stowe threshed 181 bushel of flax to the aero on his farm nea Burt. A sample case this year is that o Chas. Schryvor. Ho bought 100 acre at $8 an acre. He broke 70 acres nn put in flax, and has sold $000 ol thn and will get hay enough to pay his ex ponsos. Flax is not ft one year's crop in Kos suth. Last year one of the Hodgson near Burt bought a quarter section nn raised $1,200 ol flax, paying for hi .land.

The Crop Hullotlnu. The state report is: Corn is matu ing quite rapidly, and two or thro weeks ol lavorable weather will plac the bulk of tho crop beyond danger Injury by frosts. Sorghum and broom corn are in promising condition, an late potatoes will yield beyond previou expectations if not cut short by an un timely frost. Pastures have been groa ly improved, and full plowing is i progress. Tho Washington report is: Th weather during tho past week in th wheat and corn regions of tho coal va leys and tho northwest, are generall favorable, and the condition of crop Improved. The harvesting of whea was interrupted in Minnesota and Nort Dakota by rain. The corn crop i greatly improved, although the weath or is too cold for rapid growth, low reports corn and potatoes improving, better crop than was expected a mont ago, but two or throo week's favorabl weather is necessary. From Kansas eastward to Ohio and Kentucky th corn crop is much improved, An Opportunity Will bo Afforded your eastern friends to visit yo by tho series of excursion now being iv_ ' by the Chicago & NprtUwestor railway, for which tickets will be sold a half rules (one fare Tor ilio round trip).

Since BO many farmers are ma kotlng apples this year it begins 1 show moro conclusively that Iowa destined to become one of the greatei fruit producing states in the union. More Die Apples. Samuel Beed of Irvlngton does no propose to be outdone in fruit. He has 200 bushels this year, besides what th boys have gathered in tho night, an of ten varieties. Yesterday ho gav us some handsome "Cooper's Earl White," and showed us some fine spec mens ol tho "Golden Busset." He say the trees he has bought at home hav all done well, but ol those he has go abroad only a lew have ever nmounte to nnythlng. In hardy varieties, how ever, he believes no country can ben this for Irult. A Sample Hay Crop. Lust Saturday Don, Paine hauled th hay he has been cutting on a quarte section near Burt into town nnd sold I to Stowo at $4 a ton, The hay was tak en from the cock and had not cost th stacking, there was no waste, und $8 worth was delivered during the day From the crop of the 160 acres Mr Paine gets $400. That is a pretty goo. return lor an unbroken piece ol land, In This Neighborhood, James A. Cranston, the owner of i fine farm northeast ol Odebolt, sowed 1 acres this season with a mixture c wheat and oats, the proportion being 10 bushels ol wheat to 15 oi oats, The result ol the experiment proved satis factory. He threshed the crop th other day, and it yielded 100 bushels o excellent wheat, and 23S bushele'of No 2 oats. The oats were of a bettor quali 'round ad on it pro . . ., was eve grown in Sao county. Tho value of thi product .at Odebolt prices is about $100 or $10 )3er acre. Mr, Cranston will con tinue the experiment next year on a larger scale. E, H. MoDougall, near Spencer, another farmer who Ja firmly of the opinion that "farming don't pay." In 1880 ho bought 80 acres of land which tie broke up and sowed to flax, and the proceeds W that crop paid for the land and all expenses of the same, This fear he leased the land, and his tenam lowed it to oats, and Mr, MoDougtill's ihuro of that prop will p»y him something like 82 per pent, on the first cost of the land, including taxes, hauling, etc. What better Investment can E man make than in a chunk of loyvu soil?
