Work progresses on the Episcopal chapel. The foundation is done, and the frame was raised yesterday. Myers bought 400 bushels of extra flue oats of 0. Dau Monday at 36 cents a bushel. They wore this season's crop. The democratic candidate for state treasurer visited Algona yesterday. Chairman Taylor introduced him to our citizens. A number of delegates thought "Bon- aohotor" was two mimes, and voted very loudly for "Scooter." "Scooter" got there with a hurrah. Bradley & Nicoulin's buggy tent has boon moved from Spencer to Ruthvon, and buggies are goinp as fast as they can supply the demand. E, J. Gilmoro has purchased A. D. Clarke's old home in the south part of town, and moves into it today. It is a handsome place, handsomely located. Ihyef § Were engaged in tearing down the walls. It seemo that for sdifle reason no attempt was made to get the foundation north and south, and the lob Was all begun over. The Courier refers to a misprint in our last issue by which we had oats bringing only 30 cents, when they Were bringing 88 cents. The mistake is immaterial, for oats on Monday brought 85 cents. Let the oats boom. Dr. Sayers came into Grove*s stable after dark last Friday, and walked rick had gtir&ti a receipt io Me#utt for the car, and the company was liable for his hay, so Cheney was ordered to get his hay out without delay, wliieh he did, and Mac. shipped his load.

The UPPER DBS MOINES received the boss potato last Saturday. Thos. Banna got it on his farm, and Weighed oh scales in town it went just one ounce less than four pounds. We considered keeping it for display, but four pounds of potato is Worth something this sea* son, and this one went the way of all good potatoes. Mr. Hanna says he has about 200 bushels this year, and feels well satisfied with them. Married, at the residence of the bride's father in this city, Oct. 18, Mr. Morris G. Minkler of Ashmont, Ohio, and Miss Florence Minkler, daughter of O. Minkler. After the ceremony was pronounced by Pastor F. M. Smith the company sat down to a bountiful supper and enjoyed tho occasion in a befitting manner. Tho groom is a thrifty farmer, nnd the bride, well known in this city, has recently made her homo in Eininetsburg. Rev. Whitfield is one of tho directors of the now college being started by the Methodists at Sioux City. In wpoaking of it yesterday ho said the school has an enrollment now of 115 students.

Robinson sold his farm in Irvington Monday to J. D. Starks. It is member them in tho future, and even matters up in some way. Tho shooting club have bought three new Peoria traps, and were down Monday trying them. The scores were good, so the traps must be. It is worthy of note that S. S. Sessions got 19 out of 20 shots, which shows how steady his nerve is. S. S. never loses his nerve or good nature over politics. Tho Methodist church in town will vote some time next month on whether women can be delegates to conference. During this and next month all the churches in tho United States will vote, and on tho outcome will depend the future opportunities of the fair sex. The date for voting here is not set. The Catholics are just completing- a very handsome church building at Bancroft. We had the pleasure of spending a few minutes Saturday in inspect ing it with Father Nicholls. The total cost of tho improvement will be but little short of $3,000, and credit to the town. it is a great part of the old homo place, and one of the earliest choson of any in the county. He got $20 an acre. The Algona delegates to the Odd Fellow convention went oil' in stylo. They had Frank got them some silk plugs, and will show DOS Moiiios wlmt the latest '.'really is. If the UPPER DBS MOINES has sont or agreed to send the paper 16 months to any one for §1.50, it is in contempt and will so remain. The statement is a lie out of whole cloth. The beautiful weather of the past week has greatly aided marketing, and the town has been full of teams all tho time^ Trade was never bettor in Algona than it has been the past month. The normal school is preparing for a fine entertainment to bo given Thursday, Nov. 0.

His pony and one belonging to Campbell of West Bend will run GOO yards at tho race track for a purse of $50. The details are arranged and the horses will bo on hand. The famous school order case against Ramsay township has been dismissed. A lot of interrogatories were attached to the answer made by the township, which T. W. Harrison, plaintiff, did not wish or was unable to answer, and he withdrew tho suit. This lets the township out of what promised to bo serious trouble. Jool Taylor has had Hutchins' clover huller at work, and on six acres of clover ho got last week a net return of $8 done, $30,000 having been apont and no debt, contracted. The 'foundations of the main building are in at u cost of $35,000, and are also paid for. The money is on hand to complete this building, and the school is an assured success. A sudden death occurred at the Tennant house Sunday. An old man named Denson, who had come from Pottsdarn, N. Y., and who was on his way to Dakota on ah excursion, got off hero sick, and died very soon after reaching the hotel. Dr. Barr was called but nothing could be done. Mr. Denson was past 70 years, and died without a struggle. His wife, her sister and sister's husband took the remains Monday and returned with them to the old home. Tho sale on Butler Bros.' farm attracted a big crowd last Wednesday, and generally speaking, everything sold well. J. J. Wilson bought a fine heifer paying $40, Henry Wadsworth bought also a good one, while Mr. Julian got 13 head of cows intending to do extensive dairying. The hogs sold at rates which made them worth four and one-half and five cents a pound, while horses, machinery, etc., went fairly well. The cows ran from $20 to $40 which is a good sale now-a-days. Everything on the farm was disposed of, and possession will soon be given to the new owner. The Butlers are whol- ALGONA, IOWA. Capital, - - '£• . $5O,OOO. Incorporated under general laws of Iowa.

The eagle eyes of the city council were east on the engine houso as it arose over the city well, and they soou discovered that it was set askew with tho rest of tho world, besides being otherwise not as contracted for. They called the attention of tho \" boss" to per acre. The seed went nearly three bushels to the acre. This $8 an acre is pay for cutting and hauling a little grass. It represents nothing else, and is clean profit. Col. J. H. Koatly will speak in Algona next Monday for the democrats. He was state senator from Council Bluffs with Senator Chubb, and since has boon a government official in Alaska, of which country ho has written some interesting sketches, He is an able speaker, and republicans should join in giving him a big audience. J. B. Jones complained Saturday of rheumatic pains in his ankle, and- Saturday night was taken with a severe attack of inflammatory rheumatism. Dr. Pride was called and did everything to prevent a spread of tho inflammation, Mr. Jones is confined to his bed, and very unfortunately, as ho has boon very busy arranging for tho sale of his cattle, which comes early in November. Fire alarm Monday brought tho people to tho building in which Bradley & Nicouliu ofiice. The flro was soon out, and was found to be in the bed quilt which had been thrown against the stovepipe up stairs. Mr. Nicoulin had kindled a fire below, and the flro re- ly undecided as to future ' movements. We hope they may decide to remain in tho county. The closing Iowa weather bulletin has a hail story from Kossuth worthy of preservation. It is reported by H. N.Renfrew of Bancroft: "On Sept. 1 there was a severe hail storm through this section, perhaps fifteen miles wide, but it only hailed in narrow strips. It was heavy at Bancroft, damaging crops and breaking glass, In Seneca, one township west, it is reported by J. B. Carr, a thoroughly reliable man, to be eighteen inches deep for a space about four rods wide by about forty rods long on tho open prairie. One man reported that in a hollow where it had drifted down it was so deep that in driving through it the axletree of his wagon BANCROFT, IOWA. R. M. Richmond, Pres. R. R. Richmond, V P A. B.

The Sept. 1 storm was one of tho moat remarkable ever known in Iowa. The Republican has twice referred in a sneering way to our mentions of the business enterprise of Burt and Wesley, and intimates that such work was not in the interests of Algona. In its last issue it refers to a mention of Wesley as "soft soap." This is an exhibition of the petty spirit which thinks Algona can get ahead by ignoring the other towns, that more than anything else creates an unfriendly spirit. There is no " soft soap" in calling Wesley a live, wide-awake, and prosperous place, nor Burt, for that matter. They are all we have said about them, and a great deal more. We hope to not only occasionally mention their prosperity, but the other parts of the county as well, and wo believe that thereby we are doing Algona no injustice. In any event we shall, continue to speak for all parts of the county, and, as fairly as may be, be a true county paper. COMMERCIAL HOUSE, Bancroft, Iowa, R. M. Richmond, proprietor.
