Wn fam;/, 1 needn't be particular about th6 Water melofl j»tch" waa ton Kennedy's parting injunction tte the reporter was leaving his market garden after ft brief inspection one day last week. This we promised religiously not to do, buttaeh promises ol edatee are never expeoted'to be kept, and so We open & little account of one of* Algo- ha's thriving industries by mentioning that the largest melons we ever saw raised in northern Iowa are in his field. Me says the boys were In them lately, .but they were green and so no great damage Me done, though they spoiled ttlotof good melons. The melons are of the "Kentucky Wonder" variety, and how that they are transplanted they are A sort of Iowa " wonder." But Water melons nro not the only big things In his gardens, and many curious and interesting sights may bo seen by anyone who will spend an hour In inspecting how land is used to got big returns from small space. "You see those bushy beans," he remarked at one place, pointing to ft patch of very green bean stalks. *'Those are 'Henderson's Bush Lima.' . They are a big Lima bean on a stalk, and the seeds were sold in packages a year ago at 25 cents lor 25 beans. They are late growers add are hardly ready yet foi? "the table. We raise four kinds of strlfig beans, to be always ready for the season. In all we have seven kinds of beans. "We raise sweet corn the same way. This year we had seven varieties, and they are so arranged that, when all planted together, they follow each oth- •er through an entire season. We have not missed a day this year in getting tender corn." "This has been a remarkable year for cauliflowers, too," he remarked, pointing to a blf? patch. "Thero are tho biggest heads there I have ever raised. That plant over there is 'sola- ife,' or oyster plant. They say when it is sliced and cooked it tastes like oysters, and is used the same way. This plant here is the egg plant," pointing to the things Mr. Pettibone assured the lady at the state fair were used to grow eggs. "Wo get the largest of these here, by all odds, that I ever saw. When sliced thin, put in pickle over night, and fried brown in the morning they are well llkod on the table. This"—but we refrain from a verbatim report of all tho new things we heard about vegetables. He took us over the various beds in his 12-ocre patch, and showed us more varieties and new wrinkles than might reasonably be looked for on 160 acres. There were hig beds of asparagus, ground cherries, musk melons, and beets. Raspberries and strawberries have a goodly place. Hubbard squash, light and dark, and a new squash which has the stem on tho big end, the "Sibley," wero in abundance. A few monster onions woro in the ground where 50 bushels of four varieties have already been taken out. Five kinds of cabbage were in one bed. It never pays to rely on one variety, he said, and you can't raise cabbage twice in succession on the same ground. A curious thing was the parsley for garnishing meats. Four kinds of poppers filled one spot, and, curiosously enough, it takes very rich ground to grow pep pers, A big bed of pieplant was in flourishing condition. The market for this is good the year round. Of cucumbers and ordinary vegetables thero was no end, and a beautiful bed of flowers of all varieties has its place. Ono of the most valuable of all the productions is the celery. He has four varieties, the "White Plume" the best. This almost blenches itself, but all of it will soon be taken up and packed in boxes in the cellar in sand or dirt, and bleached. The finest bleached celery ever put on tho market in Algona bos come from this garden. Another curiosity also was the egg gourds, a little gourd like an egg used to betray tho confidence of the trusting hen. The production of this, however, should undoubtedly be discouraged, as it competes injuriously with the china egg industry of the east, and our present theory is that we should quit using anything we can got cheap, providing New England can manufacture it at high prices for us. That all this should be had on twelve acres, three of which are given to potatoes, only shows how much the ground can be made to produce. A little is saved by putting squash with tho peas, the latter being out of the way in time for the first. Cucumbers are also raised where tho pea crop has been gathered. But in the main the results are all from enriching tho soil and getting everything out of it. This market garden is a veritable curiosity, as are so many of its products, and our readers cannot spend a pleusanter hour nor meet pleasanter men than by visiting the Kennedys and seeing what they ore doing and how they do it. Tho AJarona Xurucry. It is impossible to leave the Kennedy gardens without noticing that you are immediately in front of J. E. Stacy's nursery, and having seen tho vegetable curiosities it is most natural to walk up along his rows of fruit trees, shrubs, and shade trees, and inspect another important institution of the town, and one that has grown to goodly proportions in spite of " gypsy" peddiars and the talk of kickers that " we can't raise fruit," Fortunately this year the kickers have let up on their moans and sighs over fruit prospects in view of the fact that nearly every tree man in the county has sold enough apples to repay all the expense he has over been to, and has his trees besides. The reporter was lucky in finding Mr. Stacy contemplating a loaded plum tree of the Do Soto variety—a variety that bears after tho second yoar and keeps on indefinitely, and whloh has big and juicy fruit. The conversation was conducted throughout in the immediate vicinity of this tree. " I am going to set all tho ground I have to orchard next year, he said when asked if he had confidence in our prospects, "Ishall put my trees In rows wide enough apart to drive through. Thou in the rows I shall put the trcos not further apart than eight foot. That Is the way to set apple trees in this country. There is no sense in scattering them over so much ground." " How many varieties of apples can bo grown horo successfully?" was uskcd. '"Probably six," ho replied. "All kinds of apples cun be raised horo with ' care. It the borers are attended to and {he trees are woll cared for tho ' Golden RusBOtt' and dozens of varieties aro ii!l right. But for the average cure given them only five or six varieties can be recommended, Of these tho Wealthy is tho chief. Out of 100 trees trees get 50 Wealthlos, if not more." In talking further of his nursery Mr. Stacy said he has 40 acres in nursery stock and over 76,000 trees. Ho shipped BJaade trees to Denver last spring, and has sold all kinds of stock in neighboring towns. He looks for a big Increase in fruit growing after this year, and hopes to see every farmer raising his (JWB fruit. >l£htS, ffiftSy' of tnStti lift mHfiJ&fi ittifl i-ni j^ftrl P&fttfi there tt & feewild&fnf ""vMetjh and d beauty often displayed In tfie handsome bouquets And cut flowed sent 6ttt.

D. D. Townsend presided, and remarks were made by Various members of tho meeting, and at the close a committee of five was appointed to look into some matters which, by common consent, seem to need Investigation, That committee is to report at a future meeting. The lumber, coal, grain, and stock problems were discussed at considerable length, and much light thrown upo*h them, A meeting of this kind can mean but ono thing, and that is that Algona business men are alive to their interests. They propose to see that Algona takes first rank in all respects, and nothing can be more fruitful than these mutuaHnterohanges of views. • Let us havo moro business men's meetings. The water works question took a new turn Monday. The parties who got the contract sent word that they wanted an 80 per cent, advance on tho work semimonthly, instead of 60, as at first talked, and also to give Minnesota bondsmen instead of Iowa. Tho council met Monday evening and refused to accept this arrangement, insisting on a 60 per cent, advance and Iowa bondsmen, or else a $1,000 bond for indemnity. The substance of this was telegraphed to the St. Paul parties, and the council is now awaiting results. In case tho contractors refuse this, the council will doubtless let the contract to some of tho other bidders who aro willing to comply with the proper requirements. As the Register says cider is a temperance drink wo feel free to publish its item about tho way our director rejoiced over tho state fair success. It says: "President Hayes maintained in spite of It tho equal tenor of his ways, but young enthusiastic spirits, like Superintendent Sessions, celebrated by filling up on sweet cider in power half. Sweet older is a temperance drink, it is all right." "Sesh.' f evidently had a right to feol good, for'every exhibitor in the sheep department joined in a written statement to the board complimenting him and Mr. Wadsworth on their management. Exhibitors from Illinois said they had .never seen that department better handled anywhere. Another case from Prairie was up bo- fore 'Squire Clarke Saturday. The facts are stated in a clipping elsewhere from the Corwith Crescent. E. V. Patterson was arrested for assaulting August Zumach over in Hancock, but was found to live in Kossuth, and was brought here accordingly, and after due hearing was fined $25 and costs, which was promptly paid. 'Squire Clarke said ho should mako the fine $50, but if $25 should be paid iu before he got judgment entered ho might accept it, and thereby he secured prompt action. Justice is speedy and suro over in this section. C. M. Doxseo's new Jersey bull arrived last week, It Is a handsome dark grey yearling named "Elkwood,".has 02 per cent, of the blood of " Combination," who sired 14 cows which beat tho 14 pound a week record. He has also sold a full blood yearling heifer to Gilbert of Charles City who ships her to California. He and W. W. Wheeler expect something fine next season in Jersey stock. They shipped their cows last spring to Rookford for service at $25 a head, and if good calves do not result it will bo because blood will not tell. The Jersey is on tho gain as town stock. Mrs. B. Gnrthwnit of West Bond writes this paper concerning a recent occurrence at Wesley, in which a girl gave birth to a child. She says tho girl mentioned in the article was In her employ and at her house on tho day and hour at which the occurrence is alleged to have taken place, and she Is prepared to prove it. She also demands tho name of our informant, which is cheerfully given. She is respectfully referred to Samuel Mayno, Kossuth's county attorney, address, Bancroft, Iowa. Mr, Bacon, our now merchant, has an announcement in this Issue which gives all needed information about his business. His stock of groceries, etc., is new and fresh and just unpacked, Mr, Bacon sees what is to his Interest by lettini' tho people know through tho columns of tho papers what he intends to do. That is not only business but it is what makes business, and ho appears to havo a realizing sense of tho fact. This paper welcomes all livo business mon to Algona. Miss Clara S. Snyder of Davenport spoke In tho Congregational church on Sunday evening. Miss Snyder is district superintendent of tho American Educational Aid association, which has for its object tho finding of homes for homeless children, and seeing that they aro placed In good families. After Miss Snyder's address a collection was taken and a little moro than $5 was con trlbuted to aid in this cause. Doubtless the time will never be when people do not forget when thoir taxes fall due. At the suggestion of Treasur or Lantry wo once moro remark that the last half of taxes in Iowa aro duo and delinquent Oct. 1, Paid before that date, no penalty -is added. After that time the penalty increases at a rate that would make tho average loan broker blush for shamo. A farmers' alliance of 10 members was organized at Swea last Friday night. The officers are; President, C. Bravonder; vico president, C. A. Mo- Under; secretary, C. O. Ekholmj treasurer, J. Hedln.

O. Gates, near Esthervllle, sold 500 bushels of flax at $1.50 per bushel for seed. It will bo sown on land in Mr. Gates' neighborhood next season and will cover at least 1,000 acres. A. C. Rutan returned from Kansas last wook and tho account he givos of that country is anything but flattering. Ho wont there three years ago and bought wild land, paying $8 per acre, and soon learned that anything llko a fair crop there was a rare exception. He seems highly pleased to got back to Emraot county whore a good crop is almost a suro thing every year. There were 84 cars of hay shipped from Corwith last week, and about 250 during tho month of August. J. R. Place, utRuthvon, throshodono field of oats that went 63 bushels to tho acre, ono Hold that went 48 bushels to tho aero; ono field of flax that went 12 bushels to tho aoro, and ono field of barley that went SH bushels to tho acre. Men for tho hay fields at Corwith aro extremely scarce. In many cases tho woman and children that aro able to drive u mower or rake are working in the fields. Two Boono county farmers experimented this year on a small scale by salting several acres of wheat fields. Tho yield ou the salted land just doubled tho other, tho groin also being much heavier. Half a barrel of salt to the acre was used. H. Walker of Meadow has 42 acres of potatoes this year and is flrraly convinced that they are a "good thing to have." Ho has already boon offered $1,000 for the crop just as it is, and will probably bo able to get considerable more, as the " Irish apples" are very scarce. And yot wo hour tho cry every once in a while- that farming don't pay in Iowa. Supervisor Muthows of Emmot county has as good a farm as thore is in tho county, and naturally wanted to add more to it of tho same kind. There is an "80" along side of it for -which was asked $3 to $7 par acre until within the lust year. Now the price askod is $12 spot cash. Mr. M. thinks hereafter when he is offered a good thing ho will tako hold of it with both hands, A, B, Smith of Livovmoro is contemplating a trip to Kent, Neb., where his son-in-law, E. 0. Taft, resides, and who used to live horo some years ago. Tho crops in Nebraska aro a total failure this year, leaving Mr. Taft in rather destitute circumstances, and Mr. Smith's object in going there is to bring him and his finally buck to a land of pouco and plenty, Crop ItoportB.

One of the interesting 1 features Was tho spread set out by Landlord Rutherford, which did credit to his already popular hostelry. Following this was ft sort of experience meeting, at which Various business toea were called upon to ox press themselves. Then Mr. Burnell explained the workings of his agency for the collection of bad debts, and Was followed by Mr. T, O. Walker, who is now connected with the Burnell agency. The meeting resulted in the ro-orean- izatlon of tho local -board of tho Burnell agency, with a membership which, as later made up, included a large number of our business men. To the reporter the foremost part of the meeting was highly enjoyable, and might have been more so but for tho fact that he was placed at the table next to Bro. Hin- ohon, which made necessary some lively work in getting a fair share of tho excellent spread. Otherwise we had no complaint to offer at anything that occurred. The new Burnell rating books will be out in the course of a month or so, and then a fellow will have an opportunity to see about what his neighbors think his credit is worth. In Justice Court. Tho case of Tho State of Iowa ttgalnst Mrs. Peter Johnson, in which Mrs. Res- segulo was tho complaining witness, was before Justice Clarke yesterday, tho charge being assault and battery. This last trouble was on or about Aug. 10 lust, and us a matter of fact was but a continuation of a family quarrel bo- gun some months ago. Tho evidence, as usual, was not without much conflict. Tho justice hoard It patiently, but failed to discover any reason for holding the defendant, and Mrs, Johnson was accordingly discharged.

Wednesday there Were 50,000 oh the gf bunds, Thflisdfty over 45,600 attend fed, while on all other days there Were enough to cheer the directors and swell the receipts. Wednesday saw the largest cr'owd in the history of the society, the receipts being over $10,000. The total receipts are $53,000. la some re spects the fair was not better than in former years, but the exhibits of stock Were larger, and now attractions enter tallied the people. But Des Moines dti herself proud in her decorations am her parades. Tuesday evening the Sen! Om Sed parade, including the civ le societies, was a. magnificent spectacle; Wednesday evening the fire dls play was elaborate and expensive, am Thursday evening the parade again went through the thronged streets. I Is claimed that public and private deco rations cost the city $25,000. The float In the parade wore beautiful, and th bands of music, tho Illuminations, the crowds, and tho noise all combined tc make a spectacle well worth a visit tc tbe capital city. Tho visitors took i nil in—thronged the capital building wound round tho dizzy stairs to tho to of the tower, scrambled for places t sleep, viewed the bright prospects o Des Moines for the futuro, kept sober and had a good time. ALQONA AT THE PAIR. About the most noticeable feature s far as Algona visitors wore concerne was the presence of Algonians in con spiQUoils places on tho grounds, and th Algona exhibits. Everywhere on turned ho found a fellow citizen. If h inquired what office that was, it be longed to Director Sessions; and if h gazed long enough at a martial flgur with a big whlto hat, riding up an down the race track and bossing th grounds, ho discovered that it was non other than Marsh Stephens. At on Important corner ho ran onto E. P Keith with silver star to speak for hi authority. He found J. W. Wadswort bossing the sheep and, poultry depart ment—and -It might bo said that th premiums wero awarded thoro noaro on time than in any on tho grounds A. F. Dalloy caught the first pickpook et arrested on tho grounds, and all hat work which they did with credit Frank Paine of Portland and Job Smith of Wbittomoro wero the other officially engaged. The Reglste singled out two of our a mon for specia praise oa follows: fct."

He thought tho cage was prejudged, and that justice as meted out by .his honor, Mr. Clarke, was far from being of tho proper sort. Ho also thought the " town was prejudiced against him," which is a mistake, of course, and wound up by saying that the "d— d town ought to be fenced in and painted." _ Tllo DnlHlos. "The Rebellion of tho Daisies" called out on overflowing house last Friday evening. It Is an entertaining little operetta In which some forty or fifty boys and girls took part and. acquitted themselves in splendid shape. It would bo hard to imagine that all of thoso beautifully-costumed Hitle folks were real, gonulno rebels, but that was in a measure necossury in order to gather a correct conception of tho performance. Miss Nettie Wilson was director, and the marching and counter-marching evidenced that she had labored faithfully with her students in order to bring out the perfection displayed. As a friend at our elbow remarked, " Not all people aro actors, but If they were this would bo a poor world to 11 vo In." Nevertheless th,o work throughout was handsomely done, and reflected credit on all who took part. The entertainment was repeated Saturday evening to u good-sized house. Married at SwSli Tho UPPER DES MOINES finds much pleasure in tho announcement of tho marriage of Henry Mason and Miss Mary Gilbertson, which occurred at the homo of the bride's parents at Swan Lake, Emmet county, on Thursday last, Rev.

Laage's fine wooc carving which was exhibited in Algon some time ago, and which took firs premium. It was woll hung in tho bos display of the art department, and a traotod'universal attention. Tho hief feature of tho dairy depar mont was Wallace & Reed's butter e> tractor, which they had in successfu operation and which, was tho center c interest to all dairymen. They ehurne butter morning and afternoon each day while Mr. Roea explained the machir to the crowd. A largo sign with " A gona" in conspicuous lei'.ers pointe out their corner, and tho -State Regi tor, in making their report, said of th exhibit: " Perhaps tho most interesting sigh to many visitors was tho butter oxtrac or, owned and exhibited by Wallace Rood of tho Algona creamery, M Reed being present to show the worl ings of the machine. It is somothin now and quite convenient to manufac urers from the fact that while ono 111 ing of milk is being converted into bu tor moro milk can bo added, and buttc can bo produced at tho rate of sixt pounds per hour. A steam engine ha boon set up and tho extractor was i work, attended by several of tho fact ry's men.

I takes tho milk fresh from tho cow an produces tho butter in a very few mil utes, getting every particle of cream It is for tho uso of creameries, and certainly perfect in its work." The only thing really not right wa the absence of a county exhibit. Ko suth could have had tho honors th year, and it was a mistake that n failed to tako advantage of tho oppo: tunity. THE STOCK EXHIBITS. The glory of an Iowa fair is her stool And the particular glory of tho fair o 1800 was the increase in number of ex hlblts in all departments. By far th largest display of sheep was present ov or made in the state.

In Leicester the showing is good, but not so exoe lent as tho Shropshires. Tho other ox hiblts are also good." The fact dawning upon people that lowU ca bring together a really fine showing sheep.
