They play this evening:at Webster City, and this is their last trip for the season. Mr. Cady and two others of the orchestra go soon to Waukesha, Wis., where they have engagements for the summer for out-door music at that popular summer resort. The painful news was received recently that Charley Lockwood, how at San Jacinto, Cal., had recently fallen through a sidewalk and broken a leg in two places, beside putting his ankle out of joint. The letter further stated that in all probability the leg would be stiffened for all time. Charley has many friends here who will learn with regret of the accident that has befallen him. It will be remembered tfeat Dr. Morse some weeks ago performed a delicate sur.gical operation on John Albright's boy, removing a portion -of the bones of 4&e ankle joint, which had become decayed and had to be tnken out. The little fellow was in town .Saturday and is getting on nicely. He already bears part 'Of his weight on the foot, and will soon have full use of it. Messrs.

Literary programme after the business session. The annual meeting of the Kossuth County Sunday School association will beheld in Algona on Saturday and Sunday, June 4 and 5. Plans are being made for the best meeting ever held in the county. Kossuth county never in its history has known acorn crop failure. It will not see a failure this year. This is not talk purely for the sake of talk. The record of previous years will bear out the statement. A traveling man on his way down town on foot last Thursday was blown off the sidewalk. We did not learn his name, but to look at him as he again regained his feet one would surmise that his name was "mud." E. B. Weldy is the new night operator at the Milwaukee- depot. Mr. Smith, who hns been holding that position here for some weeks, has returned to Ossian, from which place ho came here. His family went on Monday. Galbraith's now building that is to be occupied by Jas. Taylor was somewhat racked by the strong wind last Wednesday, but 'was soon put back in place again. The front was open, which gave old boreas an extra purchase upon it. The news came last week of the death of the eldest daughter of W. W. Alcorn of Seneca township. The circumstances surrounding the case are sad indeed, and Mr. Alcorn and family will have the sincere sympathy of all their many friends. J. J. Wilson this week presents some valuable suggestions on the subject of flour, which should be carefully considered. He has made the manufacture of flour a study for several years, and reached Monday evening and the contract signed. The intention at one time was to have the job done by days' work, but tile idea was finally aban- donee!. This action insuresagood, substantial piece of work, as .the contractors are fully competent ito carry out their part of the contract. Hudson & Shadle last weak .sold their photograph business to a (gentleman from Perry, named Peterson., possession to be given June 1, The boys have done a good business, but desire to devote all their time to the sale of pianos, organs, and • sewing machines, in which lines they have a good trade. Lou. Hudson will Ueep his viewing outfit, und do some work during- the summer lor some of the circuses. Wo interviewed Mike O'Bpurke as to railroad matters, and he said it was hardly likely that he would get any contract for grading on the new line through the*iorth part ot the county. He thought the original contractors had got the work so cheap that they would lose money on it, the best they could do, and he did not want any of the work at the prices at which subcontractors would likely have to take it. E. P. Keith told . us the other day when in town that the diagonal street, between town and the Milwaukee depot, was the worst stretch of road he saw on the way from his place to Algona. He said that in many places in the country he could trot his team without trouble, and that he made good time. That was his experience. Another man took a livery team and went out of town on the road to the Lund farm, a distance of about four miles in all, and it took him just five hours to make the trip. ly contemplated putting the- thing out at onetime, just as any other disturber would have faeen served, but the temperature of 'the room prevented. Neighbor Platt of the Lu Verne News says that Dwvid, son of Jesse, meaning and intending to convey the idea that it was hone other than our genial ex-sheriff, D. A. Haggard, was in Lu- Verne on Saturday to sell some goods at auction, and adds that " his harp seemed all owt of tune and as a consequence things did not go very well;" also that "David failed to enthuse the audience and went ifaome without leaving any future appsflntment." It is not quite clear wh# Bito. Platt should administer this tnild " roasting" to our always successful :auctioneer. It may be only an " ad" for which David paid him, as he could well afford to do. And yet there is a luUking suspicion that_ it came about as a result of that little incident about the News and the shirt's caudal appendage. An explanation will be in order, and Bro. Platt has the floor. ___ Cheap Hates on the Milwaukee. For the independent party national convention to be held at Omaha, July 4, excursion tickets vyill be sold at one fare for the round trip.

PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. To the Editor: One of the most sue cessful meetings held in A.lgona in a long time was that of the temperance convention held in the Congregational church on Thursday and Friday of last week under the auspices of the Humboldt district I. O. G. T. and the W. C. T. U. of Algona. Notwithstanding the inclement weather and the uncertain condition of the railroads, delegates were present from Charles City, Webster City, Renwick, Bancroft, from Whittemore and Eagle Grove and other places. Great credit is due to A. A. Sifert for the excellent programme planned for the meetings and for tho general arrangements,' which seemed to give entire satisfaction. The citizens of Algona felt more than repaid for the welcome accorded to their homes and firesides to these earnest and pleasant delegates and friends, and the impress left will be one, we believe, of lasting good to all who participated, and to our town and county. Among the prominent speakers from abroad wore Hon. B. F. Wright of Charles City, editor of the Iowa Temperance Magazine, a periodical of large circulation and influence; Mrs. M. F. Hinman of Belmoncl. president of one branch of the Iowa W. C. T. U.; Mrs. Gertie Nurse and Mrs. Anna Shultz of Missouri Valley,'state organizers in I. O. G. T. work; Mr. Paine of Eagle Grove; Mr. Freeh of Bancroft; Mrs. It is good for 25 cents at the The 'Boston Store, We want to find out whether it pays to advertise in '' The Upper Des Moines" or not, and in order to prove the same we will accept this slip as 25 OerLte in. from date until the first of June, to anyone purchasing to the value of $1.50 or more. The Boston Store, 33. UPropr. his conclusions are worth something to every lover of good bread. The poet Campbell is being urged to put his productions on the market. His latest effort, in which the boot-leg- gers are made to hunt for cover, is meeting with very general favor, and his friends want him to reap the fruits of his efforts in a substantial way. For some days past no omnibuses have been run to the trains, owing to the almost impassable condition of the roads. Baggage has been transported, but the traveling public have been permitted the royal privilege of traveling between town and the railway depots on foot. Strange as it may appear the roads were better after last Wednesday_'s hard rain than they were before. This came from the pelting manner in which the rain came down, beating the ground in such manner as to make it much harder than is usually the case aftol> a hard rain storm. A fellow was around town Thursday offering as many as 17 hankerchiefs for a dollar. He found some purchasers, of course, notwithstanding theJpact that the whole outfit wasn't worfn a quarter. Home merchants who advertise in the local papers can double discount that fellow's offer. The W. C. T. U. desire A "Temperance Picnic with the Old Woman who Lived in a Shoe" is the suggestive title of an entertainment to be given at the Congregational church tomorrow evening by the Juvenile temple. As will be readily understood, the programme is made up wholly of little folks, all artists in their way, and elaborate preparations have been made for an evening of much merriment. The cause is a good one, and people generally should turn out and give them a good audience. The teachers' association gathered at the high school building last Saturday, but the bad roads made it look as if attendance would be slim, so it was decided early in the day not to attempt to go through with the regular pro- gramme. Later in the day, however, the teachers arrived in considerable numbers, and an interesting session was bad. The meeting was adjourned to Saturday, .Tune 4, at which time the regular programme will again be taken up, and it is hoped the weather may be such that the teachers can all bo here on time. Dan Neelings was brought down from Bancroft last evening, violently insane. The recent death of a daughter seems to have been the immediate cause of his trouble. The commissioners of insanity investigated his case last even-, ing adjudged him insane, and he started for Independence in company with an officer last night. The commissioners also had before them yesterday the case of Miss Bailey, who lives near Whittemore. She had also become insane, and goes to Independence today in company with relatives. Both cases Miss Floy Barnes of Preston, Minn., is the guest of Miss Moggie Winkel, and will remain several days. Mr. and Mrs. Gardner Cowles spent a couple of days at tho Omaha conference last week. The high water made it difficult for them to get away. Editor Wright was a pleasant caller at this office last Friday. He was in attendance upon the temperance meeting, before which he spoke Thursday evening. B. W. Haggard returned last Friday from Louisville, Ky., where he spent a day attending to business matters. He thinks that is a pretty nice country to live in, but says the best land he saw on his trip is right here in Kossuth county. Dr. Barr was at Sioux City last week attending his regimental reunion. The Sioux City papers say the regular programme of the meeting was abandoned by reason of the flood calamity, though there was an informal gathering of old comrades. G. C. Burtis arrived in Algona last Friday rather unexpectedly. _"Gale" has been in the west for some time, engaged as agent for a building and loan association. His work latterly has been in New Mexico, but he says he likes Oregon best. We understand he is not here to remain. Having secured the agency of the New England Loan and Trust Company, I am now prepared to make farm loans on five to ten years' time at the lowest possible rate, with privilege of partial payments before due.

The admonition to plant trees not gone unheeded in Algona spring, and many have taken advantage of an exceptionally fine time to put out shade trees about their homes. No better season for this work was ever offered, and trees set during this wet season are as sure as an Iowa corn crop. Algona already has the reputation of being one of the handsomest towns in to return their thanks to citizens who so kindly furnished entertainment for the delegates and visitors to the convention; to our minister for aiding us in the work; to the choir for excellent music, and to all those who by their presence and words of cheer made the convention a complete success. When a man finds it necessary to go around and heap personal abuse upon members of a jury who decided a case against him, he should be reminded that he is on the wrong track. He should relieve his pent-up feelings by "cussing the court." That's what the court is for, and, the fellow himself wil WLlltl \JL1\J\J1: U»*V •-— i northern Iowa, and the time is not far distant when it will exceed its present beauty, and not the least among tlie reasons will be the fact that our people take an active interest in this one matter of tree planting. Thispapsr has received numerous compliments on the accuracy of its weather indications of last week. It is no trouble to predict the weather; most anybody can do it, We should be inclined to keep it up, but there is noth- ns in it. Foster, Hicks, and all tho •est of the guessers would soon have to ake a back seat if we were to go at it n real earnest, and as we have no desire to break them up i" bu ™ 8 shall no doubt abandon the idea eave them a clear field.' Moreover we are in exceeding good health, and as fong as this is not what we are working for, we see no good reason for keeping up the "forecasts" so well begun.

Hatch'of Whittemore; Mrs. Jennie M. Ayors of Emmetsburg, arid others who contributed much to the success of the meetings. On Thursday evening a very alne address was given by Hon. B. F. Wright. This was followed by an earnest paper by Rev. Mr. Chamberlain of Burt, and a pleasant talk by Mrs. Shultz. On Friday morning the opening exercises and discussions were led by tbf) ministers of Algona. Let no one think that temperance sentiment is dying out in Algona. The strong words of Presiding Elder Black, the fervent utterance of Rev. Dorward, the pleasing and earnest speech of Rev. Mr. Flau- nag'an. as well as the keen argument and ttiunder tones of Mr. Wright, all proclaim that tho day of jubilee is at hand, and that soon we shall have a country freed from the vice of intemperance. On Friday afternoon the meeting was presided over by Mrs. T.oH. Conner, president of the Algona W. C. T. U. Mrs. Lizzie B. Read read an able paper upon "Alcoholism as a Disease." Mrs. Hinman gave a very pleasing address upon W. C. T. U. work. Mrs. Hatch, Mrs. Lull, Mrs. Nurse, and Mrs. Ingham were among the speakers of the afternoon. Mr. Jos. Hayes of the Algona Republican read an excellent paper upon "Temperance and the Press;" also an earnest and thoughtful paper was read by Mr. Freeh of Bancroft. Mrs. Jennie M. Ayers and Miss Belle Tellier gave fine recitations. On Friday evening the gold medal contest was held. The audience on this occasion was unusually large and appreciative. The sum of $15.90 was received at the door. There were six contestants: Miss Ida Campbell of Charles City, Mr. Howard Hutoe and Miss Jennie McKee of Webster City, Miss Emma Barslou of Bancroft, and Mr. George Hamilton and Miss Irma D. Clarke of Algona. Tho judges were Mr. M. I. Hamilton of Chicago, and Mrs. Jennie M. Ayers and Mr. W. S. Pitkin of Emmetsburg. Each speaker called forth hearty applause from the audience. All showed excellent training and discipline, but the fortunate winner of the Demorest gold medal was Miss Irma D. Clarke of Algona. The youth of the speaker, the grace of gesture, the perfect enunciation, the flexible modulation of tono and voice, and the pathetic rendering of a very pathetic piece, all combined to call forth most hearty approval from the audience, and the verdict of the judges was tho unanimous verdict of all. Where all did well, Miss Irma was the worthy winner. Mrs. Hinman came forward and in a very happy manner presented the medal. We should omit an important part of this evening's entertainment if we should fail to speak of the beautiful music rendered by the choir. This temperance convention in Algona has been the means of creating fresh enthusiasm in the good cause of temperance, Our own lives are stronger and happier because of knowing and communicating with our neighbors in lines of thought and work which exalt the individual, exalt the community, and exalt the country. Was Cured in Three Days. Mis Grace Littlejohn is a little girl, aged 11 years, residing in Baltimore, Ohio. Read wh at she say s: "I was troubled with rheumatism for two years, but could get nothing to do me any good. I was so helpless that I had to be carried like a babe, when I was advised to get a bottle of Chamberlain's Pain Balm. I got it from our druggist, Mr. J. A. Kumbler, and in three days I was up and walking around. I have not felt any return of it since and my limbs are as limber as they ever were." Fifty cent bottles for sale by druggists. PEOM THE COUNTY TOWHS. WESLEY. WESLEY, May 23.—Saturday was a busy day for our merchants. Farmers have put off going to town on account of tho bad roads as long as possible, but it seems that a cood many ventured out Saturday. Geo. B. Hall and K. Faulk have bought a new ditching outfit, which they are expecting to arrive any day. Mr. Hall informs us that he has ditching enough already on- paged to keep them 'busy every day this summer. Ditching is a thing that is needed in this part of the county, this spring at least. It would be a good thing for our roads if there was a little more ditching done to draw tho water off that is standing in ponds along them. Gus. Studer has been running a general store over In the German settlement for the past few months, and we should judge by the amount of goods he hauls over there every week or two he must bo doing a good business. Gus. is a rustler and we think ho hns found his calling. Mrs. Win. Colby and her daughter Muble attended the teachers' association at Algona last Saturday. Wm. Walton returned home from Sioux City Sunday evening. In speaking of the high water at Sioux City he says that pen oan't describe it, and that the Sioux City papers do not begin to give the account of it as bad as it was. He says that people living in this part of the state can be thankful, as wo have not had near the amount of rain here as there was west of us. Mrs. Maud Hanmim of Inwood is hero visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs. E. E. Watte. Our citizens met in caucus last Saturday afternoon to select candidates for town of- iicers. Z. S. Barrett was nominated for mayor, J. S. Gallagher for recorder, E. F. bacon, Jake Huber, F. Hume, T. A. Clark, H. C. Hollenbeck, and G. W. Eddy for trustees. The election of officers will be 'held next Saturday, from 9 a. m. to 0 p. m. i D; A. Haggard of Algona was in our town Monday. The mud is drying up rapidly, and a few days more of sunshine and everybody will forget that we had such a wet spring. We notice that Bert Giddings is back at his old stand again in tho Alliance store. Bert has been having a round with the mumps for the past two weeks. Fred. Amesbury spent Sunday with his folks at Whittemore. A couple of families of Gorman emigrants arrived here from the old country Sunday. Wo have been unable to learn their names and just where they intend to locate. However, as they have rented a couple of houses here in town it looks as though they intended to stop with us for awhile, at least. Ask Frank Bacon what was in that parcel he picked up the other day, and then got ready to run. The editor of the Wesley Reporter says, after quoting one of our items in last week's TJpi'Bii DBS MOINES, that he did not know if the above was intended for a slur on our drayman's team or' not, but advised his readers to visit tho places mentioned and judge for themselves, and after doing so to visit Hunttingj& Co.'s warehouse, where they would find the greatest mule of them all, and that he had completed his training and was ready for the circus to commence. In reply to the above we wish to say to the public, after visiting the warehouse just walk over to the Reporter office and take a look at thatimported bull (John Bull). His pedigree does not rank very high with the American people since 1770, but we think with a little more training he might do to class with those white mules when the circus commences, providing he has his horns tipped with silver. LU VERNE. LuVmiNis, May W.— Born, to Mr. and Mrs. C.' E. Simmons, a girl, on Friday morning.
