Wilson's office for stun dates aa these reports: Sept. 10, offered 0. L. Lund for hogs 83.75. Sept. 8, paid Haohman for hogs £3.60. Sept. 11, paid Matt Osterbauer fo flora, 86c. Sept. 11, paid E. S.

The lowest price paid for wheat to n dozen sellers was 85 cents, and the highest quoted about us is 80. The lowest flax price was $1.21, timoth; brought $1.20, and oats stood at 2t During the week A. E. Paine paid Jiia Jones $3.50 for loose hay, and J. W Hinchon and others paid $4 for hoy in open market. Soft coal, the best, sole at $3.60 a ton. These are all figures fo actual sales. No figures are given for West Beni or Llvermore, as we have been unabl to find a market list for either place M. Stephens, however, was In Wes Bond last Friday, and oats wore selling there nt 20 cents, while In Algona the; were 28 and higher. Joe Cordlnglej and others were in Livermore Thurs day, and hogs there sold at $3.60, whil $3.70 was openly offered here, as hi told some of those selling. From thos figures our readers can draw whatevo Inference thoy please. Where Frost Comes. The worthlessness of agricultural ad <. vice from non-residents is shown in th following Item from ono of "Tama Jim : Wilson's late syndicate farm articles He says: " We are coming to the fros point In Iowa weather, and many ar uneasy lest it catches tho corn. It wll likely overtake many fields In Iowa, as the northern counties of our state neci an average season to ripen corn nheat of frost." Now how often has frost talc en the fields of the " northern coun ties"? Just once in Into years, am then corn was a poor crop all over th state. This year tho north end of Kos suth county has more advanced cor than the south end, and corn all ove will average with that in Tama county where Mr. Wilson lives. Corn is jus as sure a crop In the "northern coun ties" of the state as It Is anywhere, am all such references as this are untro and injurious. We have never had thi trouble with corn In Kossuth that they have hod right in the corn region c Nebraska. Twice in the last five year we have supplied tho feeding sections when tho crop was a partial fallur elsewhere. If Mr, Wilson can fini newspapers in the "northern counties to republlsh his guessess that the fros will catch us, that Is his good fortune The UPPER DES MOINES has no room for agricultural news, however, whlcl Is Incorrect, and which gives a bad im pression to outsiders. In Tills XelgUborliood. A farmer living near Odebolt, say the Sac Sun, came to that place slxteei years ago. He bought 160 acres o land, paying $4 an acre for it, and hm money enough to pay one-fifth, $125 down. He hod to go in debt for a team and farm implements. Now that man has a farm worth $30 an acre—$4,800— and personal property to the amount o $2,200, making $7,000 in all. He has a small mortgage, $800 we believe, on hi farm. All this he has saved In sixteen years. Now let us hear of some man In Sac county who, beginning sixteen years ago on $200 capital, invested in merchandising of any kind, is toda; worth as much as this farmer. He can't be found. A gentleman who has been a residen of Hooks county, Kansas, for twelve years, and who has this season come in to Jones county, where the crops are sure, was in the Montlcello Express of fico Tuesday. Speaking of the short ness of tbe crops In that state, he salt that he had some practical information on the subject, for he had that morning received a remittance of the rental pro ceeds of 160 acres of land, which amounted to just three dollars and thlr teen cents. One of the best crop reports Blue Earth has had the pleasure of record ing this season comes from the farm o August King in Jo Davies township Eighty-three acres of wheat threshec yielded 18 bushels No. 1 wheat to tho acre. Mr, King attributes his success this season largely to the use of u dril' In planting his grain, Grapes in some parts of southern Iowa are beginning to rot, and it is feared tho crop will bo a failure. In tho north and central portion of tho state the prospect for a crop is good Twelve car loads of hay wore shippec from Corwith Tuesday. And the aver- ago output in good weather is about ten cars per day. lilts Jersey Stock Form. Work has already begun on tho residence to be erected this fall on the Clarke farm lying between the Hart and Wulkley farms a mile from tho Milwaukee depot. Mr. Clarko is the owner of the well-known Jersey cattle Mr. Hart has had in the county, und is a big Wisconsin farmer and breeder. His son will occupy the farm here, and will bring enough thoroughbred stock to start u breeding farm. This is tho first attempt to make Jersey cuttle a regular business in this section, and tho event is of some importance. Tho new house will bo also u big addition, as It will be a largo and fine-looking one. Good improvements are being made throughout. Dakota Stock Coiuliitf In Three cars of Dakota hogs were brought to Algona lust Wednesday and sold to J. J. Wilson. There woro 400 lean and hungry porkers in tho three cars, which speaks very fully of their condition. They were brought by a representative of the farmers of one county, who wo? sent to sell tho stock wherever he could. Mr. Wilson put the hogs in his yards, and is disposing of them to farmers who want to feed. Tlio Rational The national crop report for September shows tho condition of crops over tb.9 country and gives tho general uvor- fl#os as compared with other years, it shows Uwt tho injury to tho corn crop reported last month was intensified by '' ajtiauunce of drought in August until came to UB relief. But too ( ton (mil recovery. The uvoru^o In pi,Wt V3..8 last uioflth.

The figures for potatoes have failed since Aug. 1 from 77.4 td 66.?4 the lowest average eter repottedj that of 1887 being 87.8 Spring and winter wheat are also largely reduced crops. This report undoubtedly indicates the final etimming up of the crop returns, and shows a big shortage all along the line. Big prices cannot but prevail in all districts where returns are go*d. fif ASi) ABOtir The Republican opposes cheap bind' ing twine for the farmers, in face of the fact that both Senators Allison and Wilson voted for It, aM In face of the further fact that the binding ttfliie trust is one of the most notorious monopolies In this country. This is in keeping With its whole record; it never openly supported Gov< Larrabee ih his efforts to protect the people from railway extortioiij It has not baa a-word of endorsement for Blalrie In his map- nlQoent fight for agriculture, and its chief item of agricultural news is that frost usttally salts the "northern counties." It is hot much wonder that it has to give a map and take any price to f et subscribers. In fact about- all It Oes is to sell the map and throw the paper In, and then it is dear. Attention has been called to the condition of the old road to Irvington, and especially the bridge north of the King place. It is unsafe, and unless the county is very lucky it will have a bill of damages on Its hands for Injuries to some one. By J. L. Faine's, too, the road has been in bad repair for weeks. This Is ono of tho main roads to town, and we learn that farmers have been forced to other places with their produce because they dare not haul here. Whether It Is the duty of the county or township to fix the road it is somebody's duty, and is being neglected. An accident sooner or later will cost ten times what repairs will cost. Let the proper authorities see to the matter and get tho road fixed at once. A new Baptist association will bo organized In this city about Oct. 14, to be composed of twenty churches In Kossuth and six adjoining counties. This movement was made advisable by the rapid growth of the churches and on account of the distance to be travelled In attending the annual meeting of the Upper Dos Molncs association. The meeting for organization will occupy three days, and the sessions, especially In tho evening, will chiefly consist of discussions, addresses, and sermons, and will bo interesting to the general public. A more definite notice of topics to bo discussed will be given later. Mr. Ploughman did not remain for the county alliance meeting Saturday, and the afternoon was devoted largely to the details of organization. A goodly attendance of delegates was present and considerable Interest was manifested. A message wns received from the Hamilton county alliance asking whether it was considered advisable to put an alliance man In the field for congress. The delegates voted "no," and decided, as one of them said afterwards, to to reform the two old parties. The alliance has grown to good proportions, and is a good thing if the farmers hand(c it wisely. The LuVerno News said last week that Algona's markets were poorer than any neighboring towns'. At the very time the item was published Algona was paying more for everything than Lu Verne pretended to. The people of tho county aro getting awful tired of this prolonged whine from Lu- iVerne. There is not n place in tho county that has been better treated by Algona, moro highly spoken of by the Algona papers, nor more favored In ways we shall not mention now. It is about time there was a little " reciprocity" In tho way of fairness. This office enjoyed a call this morning from an Impudent traveling representative of the Dewltt Patent Medicine company, who explained nt lenpth why he should have advertising rates at about half what our people pay. We have no use for- this class of traveling gentry. Tho papers which do business with them lower themselves,' besides defrauding their home advertisers. Tho patent medicine agents who do not do business as other men do ought to be given a wide berth by tho country papers. Dr. Hudson was a pleasant caller Monday, and In talking of early times recalled tho fact that ho was in California at tho time the state was admitted into the union. That was in I860, and ho says when ho saw San Francisco two years ago there was only one building he recognized. He says Quincy Hudson likes It better there this year, and wants the old folks to make him a visit. Cheever Is now in Wisconsin with a surveying party, and Is soon to get $100 a month. Following are tho trial jurors for the Oct. 14, term of court: Frank Amos, Burt; Eugene Tellier, Algona; Geo. Simmons, Lu Verne; J. B. Carr, Seneca; Sam. Stuisy, Irvington; Joseph Dor- weller, West Bend; F. S. Stough, Algona; Grant Ramsay, Algona; S. B. Heed, Algona; John Jemison, Algona; R. H. Spencer, Algona; J. D, Storks, Algona; Jos. Ferguson, Burt; C. E. Bravender, Swea; J. B. Robinson, Irvington. There will be a pleasant picnic up at the R. J. Hunt grove two weeks from Thursday, Oct.- 2. The people in all that section are planning for a harvest gathering, and expect all their friends in Algona and around the county to bo present. This is ono of the best settled und most prosperous parts of the county, and with good weather there will be one of the finest picnics ever held. Remember the date, and get your basket ready, A copy of the Los Angeles, Cul,, Times contains a report of a meeting held to discuss tho city water supply. In it Is given a full report reud by C. P. Dorlnnd on the title to the water In the river, for which a vote of thanks was tendered him. He also presented an outline plan for a system of water works. C. P. is evidently ono of the leaders In public matters over on tho coast, and displays his usual energy. Geo, E. Clarko calls our attention to the following court record ut Sioux City; " In Josie Zuver vs. J. R. Zuvor a decree of divorce was grunted the plaintiff, und she to have us alliinony two lots In Rurul Homo addition and u chock for $50. Defendant to pay costs." Tho defendant Is our old Judge Zuver, nnd tho ground of the divorce is reported to be cruel and Inhuman treatment. A pleasant marriage was celebrated at Hull's restaurant last evening, John Daniels and Sadie Bullen being tho parties. Rev. Davidson performed the ceremony, nnd gave tho young people u happy start. Both have many friends In the county who will extend congratulations, und uruong them none more heartily thun tho UPPER DES MOINES.- Nyrum Taylor reports u peculiar cir- jumatunce in Lotts Creek. Fred. Meino, living on the Chus. Wilkins pluco, hud his cuttle in tho corn lost junduy night and sent, his dog in to drive'them out, and one in running went into u tree and broke her nock. Elis theory is that she was dazed by tho ight of the lantern aud could not see. Mrs. Mclntyre Is tearing down part of her old building, and will put up a now house fronting on Thorington street. This will be a valuable addi- •lon und will fill tho lot hitherto vacant. The old building is part of the iloneer hardware store, whore Jos. Mo- 'utyro for so many years hold forth. A drove of 400 Dakota cattle went .hrough towu last Thursday on the way >o Franklin county. Thoy showed hard usage and evidently had nod enough of the west. Dakota stock Is being sent all over Iowa and fed or disposed of as can be arranged. We notice that 400 logs were sold ut Ruthven last wee);. Some of the largest sweet we have ever seen were brougbi oillce yesterday by Mrs. J. J7 ~ •ulsed in her garden t .„ Winftotjft tBSt Store t6 bvSflWwflSt fiofetfc when fee tftdteS.

Last year at Webster City a fast walking" plough horse won the money. It guinea enough on the fiflt half mile to keep ,tHe lead. Fast walkers especially and fast trotters Stand the best Show, tt will bo an exciting contest. While ih BOB MoineS at the state fair, Mr. Scott, on the Ingharn farm, bought an exhibition Polafld China boar to use with his full-blood Stock brought from Illinois. He and Mr. May nave raised some pretty fine full- bloods this year themselves, which will probably be seen at tho fair next week James Patterson, living some eight miles southeast of Algona, was in buying lumber Monday for some hew bams. He is building a hog house 40x20 feet, With an alley through the center, and a cattle shed 82x18 feet. The hew farm buildings speak for the progress being made in the couhtfy. Exhibitors at the fair must remember that entries wilt positively Close on Thursday at 10 o'clock. The secretary's books make this absolutely necessary. If people expect their premiums promptly they must be prompt them* selves. No entries will be made after the hour named, The foundation is being laid for a fine hew residence which C. H* Blossom will erect on his lots on Call street west of Ji D. Shadle's. - The Work will be done this fall. The outline on the ground gives promise of a handsome home and a fine addition to Algona's fine residences. Frank Jenkihson is not complaining this year, although for that matter he never Complains any year. His flax will pay for the land It is on acre for acre. He thinks he has done fallry well to get laud three and a half miles from Algona clear out of one crop. Bishop Perry's visit to St. Thomas' mission and the meeting of the Northwestern convocation, which wore announced to take place on tho 23rd, have been postponed for a few weeks, the bishop being unavoidably prevented from coming on that date. The Courier is worried for fear the republicans will foil to call a county convention and it will bo behind hand with its run for the recorder's office. Never mind, Bro. Hinchon; you Will have an easy victory if the republicans don't nominate anyone. The state crop report puts tho avcr- rago corn yield of Iowa at 35 bushels to the acre. Tho average yield of sound, merchantable corn is guaranteed at 24 bushels to the acre, which is about 80 per cent, of our ten years' average In Iowa. W. A. Wickham, our friend of Ramsay township, says that Kossuth county " " as any. His outs „ per acre, flux 11 bushels per acre, barley 85, and wheat 18 per acre. Who says Iowa Can't raise wheat? Everyone should bear in mind that our country is being visited from all quarters by people looking for land In a fertile section. Tho fair next week will have any number of outsiders present to see what kind of a showing wo can make. Tonnant's "King David" took the honors at Britt lost week, getting first money in the throe minute race and second in tho free for all. This week he is at Forest City. Next week he will be at homo to help enliven the fair. Frank Nicoulln bought up nnd shipped lost Saturday a car load of new milch cows to Illinois. Ho had a deal by which ho was able to dispose of them at prices which paid tho farmers well enough for their stock. Tho advertisement of tho state normal school Is published this week. The fall term has opened with 500 students, and President Seerley writes that it is in very flourishing condition. While Coonan, the original package man, was over at Emmetsburg attending to his interests someone broke in his back door nnd took several coses of beer and some $50 worth of whiskey. F. C. Wilson is after our coal dealers this winter, as his advertisement this week ' indicates. He intends to keep tho prices down to bed rock, and it will pay our readers to consult him. C. B. Matson completed his school census count and finds six more .people In Algona than Mr. Cleary did. Of school children we have 704, of which 402 nro girls, leaving 302 boys. J. B.

The county fair begins next Wednesday, and continues Thursday and Friday: In some respects it starts under more favorable circumstances than ever before. Flistof all, everything Is in better shape to eshiblt. Crops are better, and we have fnore aud better Stock. Iti all kinds of cattle and horses this ought a remarkably fine Showing. Second, the association will pay all premiums in full as fast as awarded, and When the premiums are reasonably large this gives a little pecuniary Inducement to everyone to have some* thing. Third, the racing purses are larger, and both in county horses' and outside speedors there will be some rivalry that will excite Interest. Last, our officials are just home' from having a hand in the state fair, and they will have new points on how to make a success of the management. Thus in 80' her colors there are valid reasons why we will have a good fair. The premiums this year are in better proportion than ever before, and larger for the winners. In the horse exhibit, which specially deserves encouragement in this section, $284 Is offered; cattle bring $242, hoes $98, sheep, poultry, and the grains, vegetables, etc., good premiums. The purses for racing are the beet over offered, and promise the most sport. Among some special features are the following: Thursday all children under 15 will bo admitted free. Some fine premiums for school work are offered, $36 in nil being appropriated to Miss Carey's department. Premiums are offered to lady riders. The best township exhibit brings a Ong. There will be an hour each day for auction sales. Special premiums will bo given to worthy articles where none are offered in the list. Several good offers are inado by merchants of special premiums. All premiums will bo paid in full. THE RACES. Following is the complete programme for next week's races: Gentleman's driving liorso to bo driven to carriage or to buggy.

No Dr. Sayers advised killing as soon as he saw it, and it was accordingly shot. Tho school board in regular meeting re-elected John Rood treasurer and C. M. Doxsee secretary for tho coming year. They have given good satisfaction the year past. Tho only damage reported by tho frost is to late clover being saved for seed. Some of that will not be very good. Corn is all right, and other crops likewise. J. W. Hinchon has put a fine-looking addition on his house the past week, and has had Orr cover the whole with new colors, much to tho improvement of his vicinity. Tho advertised sale of Gov. Carpenter's Short-horn cattle has attracted tho notice of our readers. Ho has a fine herd, and will send a catalogue on application. We notice that at tho Jones county fair tho merchants all made big displays. The fair next week should have a good exhibit from every store in town. One of Kennedy's " Wonder" melons was cut In this office last week, and we can now testify from experience that wo told nothing but the truth about it. Mrs. E. L. Cooke Is having a large kitchen added to her fine residence on Call street. Shadle is doing the work, and is making a tasty addition. Word comes from Spokane that Geo, Annls has been very sick with malarial fever and may have to leave that city, as the fever Is very prevalent, Tho Monday club meets with Miss Dodd next Monday evening.

This is in tho right direction, and tho people of the county should encourage tho young folks to compote. We have never heard a reason given why " boys leave the farm," except that they are not taught to tako pride In farming. Lot thorn once got a little enthusiasm in farming of their own and that complaint will cease. Tho same is true of girls. There are plenty of both who can win little premiums at the fair, and, better still, win confidence in their work or learn from others how to do It better If they are encouraged to take a hand In. If they have a fast-walking old plug thoy can win tho novelty race, also, the premium for which is not so little.

Tho Republican Is now being sent out to subscribers In the county for 75 cents a year, and a map of lowu given to boot. Wo have tho names of reliable parties in the county who are getting it at that price. We regret that others are pny- ing more, but some huve to puy ono dollar, whoso names also we have. The old subscribers who have stood by the paper are still charged $1.50 without u mup. We have no doubt if thoy raise a vigorous protest, thoy, too, can get Into the 75 cent cluss, as tho Republican certainly would not charge its old friends moro than Its now men.

Hugh Smith was a visitor Saturday, having issued the first number of the GrOldfleld Chronicle, and being then on his way to be married at LuVerno. The Chronicle begins with every promise of a brilliant future, and is a bright and newsy local paper. Hugh is a good printer, nas married a most estimable young lady, and we hope will prove the old adage false, " Iris too much, we dally hear, To wive nnd thrive both In one yenr."

Putting A slick swindler was exposed In Algona last week In Prof. T. W. Whlttier, "optician." He arrived with four assistants, flaming posters, a goodly stock of spectacles, and began business. He was well dressed and paused as an eye healer of great renown, until Pat Cady happened to see him, When his true character Was discovered. Our readers will remember an Uncle Tom's Cabin coinpany which went with a tent, am showed sotne years ago near A. Hough's residence. Cady and Hugh Smitl were engaged for its band, nnd traVelec some months, till at El Paso, Texas, the manager skipped with some $800, leav ing the boys stranded. " Prof." Whit tier was the proprietor of the show and also the gentleman who so unfor tunately disappeared with the money When ho first saw Cady he refused to recognize him, but Pat secured Sherlf Stephens and Saturday evening visitec hiin officially, and after some parley he paid him part Of what he owed him Mr. Smith was not so fortunate in get ting What was coming to Hugh, as th« " optician" succeeded in a big bluff Finding that this was not likely to long prove a profitable field for spectacles the professor secured his effects and wo learn, went north to Wlnnebago. It is reported that ho did n good bus! ness hero and actually sold a quantity of glasses. If so it only illustrates how a humbug can bo worked. Ho is nt more an optician than one of St John's horses, but Is an all-around con lldence man and blackleg. If advortls Ing these fakirs and swindlers woulc prevent their doing business, he shouli be freely exposed in this section, bu keeping him out only probably lets nn other In who is just as bad. It Is a sin gular fact, but often as those traveling swindles have been exposed, they flour ish with renewed vigor and find no one of support. There Is an unfortunate truth in tho reply tho man got whc sent n dollar to a fakir to find out how to get rich. " Do as wo do," was the response. "It is only a dollar in a place, but the sucker crop is the only ono that never fails."
