At th&t time in the local columns o! the UPPER ffifg MoiNfcs appeared the following: " % ordinance j>erson§ are forbidden to tide on the sidewalk ou any, Wheeled vehicle, the Marshal will tjforoptljr arrest Anyone found Violating' this ordinance." A fetf in to*n joked the rnftyof^ because "Wheeled vehicles" Would include baby carriages, and one or two ot our neighbors took it up and had a little sport out of the matter. Froni that the item started and when it Will 6fld is now purely a matter of cott- Rut riven Free Press, which wittily said! "Algona has an ordinance prohibiting the use of baby carriages on the side Walks, and the mayor has ordered the marshal to see that the ordinance is enforced. We believe that this move on the part of Algona's law makers will have a tendency to discourage her infant industries. 1 ' The Emmetsbui'g Democrat in like strain said: "The mayor of Algona has prohibited ladies from using baby carriages on tho sidewalks of that city. He evidently is not fond of babies. This order will certainly cause a decrease in the population of that city." But then it began to go in dead earnest, and the Dubuque Times sagely re ' The mayor of Algoua is a He has forbid the wheeling of Up ill iea by marked: donkey. baby carriages on the sidewalks of that crowded city. The babies have as much right to order him off the sidewalks as he has to order them off." Then it was heard from in all quarters. Miss Cora Setchell was in Chicago buying goods, and a member of the firm showed her the item and asked her about it. Last week we received a personal letter in which tho -writer said: "I send enclosed an item I saw in the Sioux City Journal of the 14th," and here was the version there given: " The moth' ers of .Algona are righteously u arms against a proclamation lusuoc _„ the mayor, forbidding tho trundling of baby carriages along the public streets. Indignation tea parties are being held and it is predicted that "his honor, tho mayor's" political goose will bo badly scorched at future elections. " The latest thus far heard from is a card sent to John G. Smith by S. S. Howland of Now York on which is i'otn tho New York follows, and under tho heading, "He Must be a Batohelor Mayor?' "Tho mothers of the little town of Algona are up in arms against the mayor, who has forbidden the uso of baby carriages on the sidewalks. They will probably totally, disregard the edict. The mayor claims that a perambulator has no more right on a sidewalk than a lumber wagon P' What the European cable may have in store remains to be seen, but we hope nothing more serious than those. How far this item would have to travel before it would have the women in open insurrection parading tho streets with broom sticks and rolling pins, is a matter of conjecture. This incident has inspired our poet to an almost frenzied state, and we understand will soon be commemorated in verso running somewhat as follows: An Item went the newspapers through, And the farther it went the larger It grew, Listen to our tale of woe. pasted a clipping fn World.

Mayor Jones, in view of the serious' ness of the situation, now issues order No. 2, which expressly repudiates any desire to proscribe the babies, and which we hope will quiet the fears and assuage the wrath of tho whole coun try. Algona's " infant industries" will be protected. The mayor says: My ambition was to make tho beautifully-shaded walks of Algona a safe and enjoyable retreat for the little folks, but In my zeal to accomplish this I was not sufficiently explicit, and in place of receiving the approval of the good mothers of Algona I have brought upon my head tho anathemas of an entire nation. The newspapers in their search after truth have discovered u hidden meaning in my recent order and have branded mo as an enemy to coming generations. Sorao have said that I was an old bachelor, knowing nothing of the influence of little arms clasped fondly about tho nock with loving embraces. Other papers havo said that my ears had grown to an enormous length, nnd that my principal employment was kicking. Others havo informed mo that my political goose had boon thoroughly cooked, and that I would be called upon to resign my highly profitable office. Others have said that I had grown so old that the sight of a baby carriage caused mo pain. All of this causes mo much sorrow, and I know not whore to fly for sympathy. One source only remains, und that is the newspaper. They being desirous to see things put in thoir true light, will come to my aid. Dear papers, say to the people, and particularly to the mothers and fathers, that their rights shall not bo abridged. Trundle your babies to your hearts content, and woe be'to the luckless wight who interferes with your four feet of sidewalk. In much tribulation, J. E. JONES, Mayor of Algona. Auction. Tho undersigned, having disposed of their farm, will sell at public auction, at their residence 0 miles southwest of Algona and 5 miles north of Bode, on Wednesday, Oct. 15,1890, the following described property: Thirty-five milch cows, 10 fresh this fall, six 2-year-old heifers, ten 2-year-old steers, 10 yearling heifers, 8 yearling steers, 1 thoroughbred Holsteln bull, and 26 calves.

But as some stranger might not know the true state of tit- fairs< it is well to state that a paper which attempts to whitewash the bind' ing, twine trust, andjvhich has not said one word about Elaine's magrtlfl- cent fight for agriculture, does hot represent any party in Kossuth county. The votes of Senators Allison and Wilson, and Mr, Dolliver's statement, tti say nothing of the scathing; denunciation by Senator Davis, speak for Iowa sentiment. The Republican has never stood square iiy for thi >hV. li e farm interests Of 'pologist for monopoly id its failure to mon- ly revolving wheels had but with all the power h THE AGAIN, Paper llau yo Special MotliodH, Uiit It Sloans Buulituuu.

Tho Courier well knows that the county printing dees not msmt enough to pjiy for padding a list or t Jog to make a paper at lojs (or eubborlptlon. At aoy rate } Iowa in anything. It has always teen a half-hearted ape' ' ' ' of every kind, and .„ ._ tion Blalne in the most brilliant effort of his brilliant career shows that it has no real understanding of or sympathy with the farm. But then we have no doubt the correspondent was joking. A narrow escape come to Mr. Miller, the grain buyer fit J. Ji Wilson's elevator, last week. He was oiling the shafting and standing on n slat about 20 feet above the floor with his arm about the post the gearing is attached to. The first he knew he felt a pulling on his coat sleeve, and for a moment he thought his time had come. The rapid' ' 'eels had caught him, power he had he settled back from the post, and in an instant his coat sleeve, shirt sleeve, and tight fitting undershirt sleeve were stripped off to the shoulder. He says ho don't know what happened it was done so quickly, hut all he remembers is that he thought of everything ho had ever done, and then he found his arm bare, and his clothing buzzing around the wheels. He has hung his coat up in the mill, and says he is going to keep it just as it is as a reminder. It was a wonderful escape, Some very handsome improvements have been added to the cemetery during the past few weeks. Among them .is a beautiful granite monument recently placed there by O. E. Palmer. Another has been erected by David King, and another by Mrs. Benham. In other ways the grounds have been beautified, and with the exception of a few lots where owners havo neglected them, is a beautiful place to visit. We learn that Sexton Fohlln keeps all lots in repair for 60 cents a year for those who do not care to attend to it themselves, and certainly there is no excuse for the few weedy graves and broken tomb stones Which are very conspicuous. One of the places strangers always visit is tho cemetery, its good appearance speaks strongly for the people whoso duty and pleasure it is to make it a worthy place for tho dead. This office was tho possessor of a fine photograph of the school house, which it possesses no longer. As its disappearance was in a good cause, however, we are compelled to overlook tho manner of it. Mr. Clarke received a letter some time ago from tho superintendent of the Colorado Springs, Col., schools saying that ho had heard our school house spoken of as a model building, and asking for lloor plans of the second story. Mr. Clarke sent these, and then got a request for a picture of the building, " if it would not be to much trouble to get it." He answered the Colorado Springs man that it would not, and camo over and mailed him our photo. In both letters the writer apoko very highly of the building, and said they should copy largely from it. Rome Woodworth was a schoolmate at Valparaiso of Bevin, tho young man who committed so sensational a murder at Clinton last week. Tho facts have been generally published, but briefly are that Bovin had been engaged 1 to a young lady who afterward married Langdon, nephew of tho big railway contractor. Bevin became moody and finally went to Clinton, where Langdon and his wife were, and after a short interview shot Mrs. Langdon, and was immediately shot himself by Langdon. Rome says Bevin was high-tempered and not popular at school. He Knew him well and was therefore peculiarly interested in tho murder. Two of the Hathaway farms were sold last week to George and John Urch of Livingston county, 111. This makes three of these farms sold by Dingley & Moffatt within a short time. They have also put an Illinois man on the D. S. Miller farm north of town, and last week sold the J. S. Kennison place west of town to on Illinois man named Curll. Tho last farm wont at $22.50 an acre. Those were all owned by non-residents; and the sales bring a lot of thrifty now men to the county, Thoy havo a number of other new bargains nearly made which slso will bring new settlers. This is evidently the time when northern Iowa is being appreciated. B. A. Myers had a narrow escape from accident Sunday evening. He was kindling his fire, and having no kerosene poured u little gasoline into tho stovo to encourage tho flames. The stimulus was all und more than he desired, for the moment the lighted match was put in the stovo an explosion occurred which knocked him flat and blew the top of the stove off, Geo. C. Call was in the room, and barely escaped the stove top as it fell. Mr. Myer's eye was injured, but not seriously, and no great damage was done. While speaking of bicycling, mention should be made of Miss Dell Richardson, who rides her safety with as much ease and grace as anyone, and who mounts and dismounts anywhere without trouble. Now that Mrs. Dr. Shore is gone she is our only lady cyclist. The success of these ladies in mastering the two wheeled machine shows that it is as much a lady's friend as a gentleman's, and that cycling is the coming exercise for all. One of the county's old and substantial settlors camo in Monday, laid down his §1.60, and remarked, that as the Republican was being given away .probably we would like some help. He is not the only man who has added his name to our list, because ho said he wanted a paper which' charged the samo price to all. Tho people don't take any stock in that method of business which has dilTercnt prices to different men. D. T. Smith shakes hands with the people by newspaper proxy this week, u plan we are bound to qpmmend in any event. But we believe tho people are tired of personal button-holing, and will take kindly to being left to cliose can' didatos for themselves after a fair sentution of the claims of each. Smith is meeting with many hearty surances of support, and will hi many friends in the convention, Algona market prices show u healthy condition this week.

This is a fine improvement promised for the future. Wm. Banwart of Garfleld had a stack of grain in the setting struck by light' nirtglast Thursday afternoon, but by the aid of parties from West Bend who saw it strike, the Stack Was sated, We also learn that the telegraphic instruments itt West BeSd Were badly burned. We hear that Mr. Chubb gave Bro, Hinohon a copy- of the call for the re publican "county convention) and served it officially with an announcement that the convention would surely be held. The republicans are bound to meet all reasonable requirements this fall West Bend, our neighbor on the southwest, is having a boom in the lino of a bran new elevator of good size, built by Counselman Bros, of Chlcn also a new brick block built by the local building company composed of tho enterprising citizens of the place. Some Idea may be formed of the Importance of our grist mills from the statement that tho water mill alone ground the past year 28,000 bushels of grain for toll. This does not include what was ground by the mill for sale, which would also be a big item, Mike Fox says there is no prospect of a pardon for his son Dave. He forwarded a largely-signed petition, but the governor will do nothing. As we said at the time, the penalty was too severe, and at least some lessening of the sentence should be made. Auditor Hofius says ho shall sell his stock and move to town before winter. He has children that he has to bring to school, and the winter is too severe for thorn, besides which he cannot manage his farm and hire the work done as profitably as he con rent. The LuVerne News again returns to its charge that Algona is not as good a market town as Lu Verne. Wo commend the attention of our readers to tho LuVerne market prices given by the News, and to tho Algona prices paid at the same time. A big land sale was made by D. A. Haggard this week to Messrs. Hall and Hyde of Clayton county. They got 400 acres adjoining the Jos. Jones farm west of town at $12.50 per acre. They will break it all next spring and build, Wadsworth's trotting stallion " Prin ceptor" got loose in the burn one night last week, and in kicking got ono foot caught, making a out on tho 'fetlock. No serious damage was done, but tho horse is lamed a little temporarily. A harvest homo picnic will bo held, at R. J. Hunt's next week Thursday, to which all the neighboring country is invited. It will bo a pleasant time to put up a basket dinner and visit in a pleasant neighborhood. It is fair that tho editor should toll a joke on himself, and the treasurer's office had ono on him last week, as he tried to pay taxes on land in section SO. He has found out that there arc only 36 sections in a township. The Nobles Dramatic company are playing every evening this week. They have a good band and put on popular plays, and add an attraction to fair goers. Their prices are low, 10, 20, and 30 cents. Next Sunday evening tho baptist pastor will speak on " Environment, or Formative Influences." This will bo tho second in a series of sermons to young people. A general invitation is extended. Goeders has another advertisement this week calling attention to his carpets. Visitors to tho fair should not fail to call and see his goods, as he has the best stock ho has ever brought to Algona. This office is prepared to testify from tasting that Olof Johnson is making fine sorghum. His success in getting a good article this year will probably make cane spring. planting general next pro- Mr, as- aye Hugh Black not satisfied with his fine now homo- is now building a barn to match. It is 32x00 foot, and will bo one of tho best in Iowa. He has just been hauling his lumber from the Paul yard. Tennant's "King David" took money in one raco at Forest City, but was ruled out of the other because of too fast a record. "King David" is getting to be a pretty speedy horse. Townsend & Langdon come to tho front again this week with eggs at 15 cents a dozen. Bring your eggs to our enterprising cash grocers, and find out how cheap they sell goods. Buss, the Chicago man owning so much land near Wesley, has bought a 200 ocro farm joining Sexton on the north. He knows that tho money is in Kossuth real estate. The ladies of tho relief corps will serve dinner at tho fair, and it is needless to say a good ono. All who patronize them will got a good meal and help a good cause. C. M. Doxsoe sold a quarter section in Irvlngton lust week to an actual settler who will come on in tho spring. That means one less unoccupied tract, Tho people of St. Joseph have boon enjoying missionary services for the past week. Several missionaries from abroad are with them. Read O, L.

VanClev of Minneapolis is expected to speak n the Burt church next Sunday at 11 t m. Mrs. Van Clove is well' known a through the state of Minnesota, but she is a stranger to many in Iowa th following polnts-about her life may in torost tho render: Her father waa captain in the regular army. In 181 ho was stationed nt Detroit, but th regiment had orders to move west an build a fort on tho Mississippi at th mouth of tho Minnesota river. Th captain's wife was with him, and whe they reached the mouth of tho Wiscon sin river, whore now stands Pratrlo.d Chlon, a little baby girl was born t them and was named Charlotte, and a they were at the mouth of the river th soldiers wanted to add the name of th river, in tho old French form, Oulscon sin. The readers of tho Northwester Presbyterian are familiar with th namo"C. O. Van Clevo." After thi the regiment followed tho river up an built the fort, and as they wore soo under tho command ot Col. Snelling th fort was called Fort Snelling. Littl Charlotte was at tho fort when th first steamboat camo up tho Mississipj as far as that point, in 1824, and was near the same spot, when tho first trai camo up to Minneapolis in 1804. Sh was married to Cupt. Van Clove at For Winnobago, Michigan territory, (no Portage City, Wis.J in 1836. The gon oral was in tho Mexican war and tha of tho Rebellion, and is still quit strong though over 80. Thoy havo ha a family of twelve children. They ce ebrated their golden wedding in March 1880. But I do not intend to write biography of Mrs. Van Clove. Come t see and hear her, Sabbath morning Sept. 28, at Burt. Tho Methodist Appointments.

Wo have buMittle room to do touch advertising, but ouf readers may be assured that nothing but bad weather can now prevent the biggest fair ever held in Kossuth. Ottf First County Kxlilbit. the opening flay of the fair is not perhaps a favorable time for retrospect, but many who witness the fine exhibit Of this Week Will feel ah interest in the first exhibit ever made in Kossuth, the opening chapter of our county history. Our catalogues announce this as the eighteenth annual exhibit. The number is right enough fdl' this society, but In fact it is the thirty-second exhibit, the first being held Oct. 8, 1858. In the old Algona Bee, Fraiiklln McCoy and Alice Benschoter editors, is given a full report of the eventful meeting. The early settler who remembers the we£ summer of 1858 will peruse the record with peculiar interest, while the now one will realize that our early history dates back to pretty remote times, It would bo worth something to have Judge Call's speech on that day and note how far We have fulfilled the expectations of the exhibitors of the first fair. The report is as follows: "The first annual fair of the Kossuth Agricultural society came oil on the 8th of October. This of Itself is quite an item in the history and prosperity of this county. The interest taken in the matter by the farmers, as well us mechanics, wo are happy to say was commendable and think speaks well for the population of tho county. The weather was clear but rather cold for comfort, therefore all did not attend who would have liked to. But yet there was so fine a display of stock and produce by the farmers, and considerable competition for prizes, as was the' case also among the different artists in mechanical ingenuity, which showed our mechanics to bo second to none in the state. Tho town hall, in which tho fair was hold, was richly decorated inside with festoons worked together by the .ladles of our town, and on the outside from tho peak of the roof floated the star-spangled banner. And around were tho horses and oxen and th.o fat cattle and tho milch cow, besides, the EGGS WANTEi At 16 cents per dofcen, at -/.? * i jf Townsend & Landorf pigs and poultry, was tho produce of And inside, there tho dairy, and tho fruits and vegetables, and lust, but still tho most beautiful of all, was the floral department, where was shown tho oi'r namental work by the Uuliea, consisting; of silk embroidery, chair covers, table covers, worsted work, crochet work, ornamental shoe work,, worked quilts,' and patch work with double-worked work, and Johnny c»ko and bread well worked, and all of it worked so as to pleaso the taste a«ui eyes, of tho most fastidious. After the business of the day was pretty wett get through with an oration was had! which, according to agreement, wu» delivered by Hon. Asa C. Call. It.was short and pithy, giving us a prophetic and no doubt true account of the future growth and prosperity of our county. Altogether the fair was sufficient to show the observer that it will not be long before young Kossuth will be able to'compete, and successfully, too, with her older and more aristocratic sister counties. And finally tho day closed sometime next morning by the departure of quite a number oi ladies and gentlemen for all parts oi the county from Eggers' saloon, where a grand ball had been got up for the occasion. May we live to seo mauy such days." MISOELLANEOUS MEMORANDA. HoinoB "Wanted.
