Mr. Bacon does not sj flattering terms of his short ' career in this place. We can ieak in iusiness assure . him, however, that the fault isnotwith the town. He tells us he will move the unsold portion of his stock to Wes'ey and put it in his brother's store at that place. Land for a town site near Armstrong was purchased a few days ago by Mr. Dows, the price paid being $26.50 ah acre. The new road across the county will run, it issaid, as far as Armstrong and Stop there for the present. built If that at the the term of court, are to be heard Only equity cases Henry Winkle offers you the " Quick Meal" gasoline stove. See his announcement this week. Jas Taylor moved his stock of goods to the new stand Thursday and Friday. You will find him next to Carter's now. Messrs. Laago and Wolf have the job of doing the work on the new Catholic church? That means that it will be well done. Jas Cowan's two new houses are well along, and he thinks he will have them completed in about two weeks. They will be for rent. S. L. Whitter's property is improved to the extent of a new sidewalk. It may be added that the new walk runs several blocks north from his place. Needed improvements are being made on J. R. Laird's residence. Both parts are being raised, and when done he will have a neat and comfortable home. The work of tearing down the old Jas. Taylor store is going on. Soon the buildings on this corner will be out and the new bank building will take their place. The Social Union club moots at the Congregational church Friday evening. Prof. Chaffee and S. A. Thompson will read papers as a part of the programme of the evening. A road grader has been used on the streets during the past, few days with good results. It makes the rough places smooth about as effectually as by any method that has yet been tried. Geo. Hunter is breaking a span of Iceland ponies to drive in harness. He is so, a good town will be temporary terminus. B. H. Winkte's new Studebaker sprinkler was last week mounted on trucks and is ready for business. It is a handsome affair, and has a capacity of 600 gallons. The time for its being brought into active use is, like most everything else this spring, dependent wholly upon the weather. Algona p.epple made commendable efforts to Utilize last Sunday's sunshine by riding out, but the roughness of the roads made it impossible to extract any great amount of pleasure out of the attempt. The roads are rapidly grow- 1 ing better, but there is still plenty of chance for improvement. Marve Cady is putting up a new house on ground just east of his father's residence, the upright 16x24, with a wing 10x20. When a young man gets married the thing he. needs most is a house, and Marve is doing the proper thing. This paper extends its congratulations to the newly-wedded couple. W. B. Quarton 5s in receipt of a letter from Chancellor McClain of the state university, asking him to act as one of the examining committee of the law class, on June 9 and 10. Mr. Quarton will probably accept, though he had planned to go to Minneapolis about that time to help renominate Harrison. The county teachers' association meets again next Saturday in Algona, and it is expected the regular pro- gramme will be taken up. The meeting of a week ago last Saturday, while by no means a failure, was not what was expected, on account of the bad roada. The teachers hope for better conditions this time. The Emmetsburg Reporter has this item: "While at Algona last week Mrs. Ayers, while attempting to go around a train that had blocked the crossing, fell into a muddy excavation near the track, and was badly covered with mud. The Reporter Is informed that she has commenced suit for damages." According to previous auouncement Fred. Corey has moved over from Wesley and will act as district agent for the to the breeding 6f which he is giving a good deal of attention, and of which he Fa making a fine success. The book is illustrated with cuts taken from photographs of several of his choice animals, and altogether gives a good idea of what is getting to be one of the county's best and most thrifty breeding farms. It may be noted that one of his best stock hogs, "Kossuth," tipped the beam at 490 pounds at the age of 11 months and three days. A farmer who lives three miles west of Algona asked us last Saturday what inference could be drawn from the fact that the musk rats had this spring built their houses some two or three feet higher than usual. We have to give it up, except on the theory that the high water has driven them out of their usual abiding places, and, as the tramp said, they had to "come up, hire." However we will turn the matter over to Bro. Hinchon. If .he doesn't know he can guess at it, which will be quite as satisfactory. We are authority on dandelion farming all right enough, but we draw the line at rats. Many old-time friends of Frank Kimball, who was connected with the Milwaukee road as civil engineer some years ago, and whose headquarters were here for a time, were pleased to meet him in Algonalast Saturday. His home is at Austin, Minn., but he will be in this vicinity this summer, having secured the contract for grading the new railroad across the north end of the county. It was learned that he is no longer engaged in survey work, but has taken up the business of railroad contracting. The work on the _ new road is to begin this week, so it is understood. "Shall we celebrate?" is the old chestnut which gets propounded about this time of the year. If we expect to do anything of the sort there is no time to spare. With the " ever glorious" only about a month away and no move made yet the prospect for a blow-out is not very encouraging. The town has our permission to celebrate if it wants to; so now if the people think it the proper thing to do, let a meeting be called and the ball set in motion. We do not need to send abroad for pullers of the eagle's tail. It has been recently shown that there is more oratory to the square yard in Algona than was ever dreamed of. Where is Ole Johnson Ryan? Why not get him to deliver the address of the day? There is a chance for an effective shooting match down in the timber beyond the Call bridge. When old man St. John left this section he somehow forgot to take with him several dogs that had long been his companions. The canines have since roamed at large in the timber.

Dorward—The Ritual Exercises—Notes. by Cut This Out recently got the pair, and when broke they will make a handsome little team. They are about as big as a piece of chalk. The A. M. &G. M. Johnson carriage and machinery stock has been moved from the rink to their new building west of the court house. They have a fine show room at their new quarters. The office building of Messrs. Lund & Eyan was moved last Thursday to its new location, on the Ford corner. Hay & Rice's office goes the other way on State street. Thos. Henderson is the master mover. The ladies of the Episcopal church will serve ice cream with cake. and strawberries, and coffee with biscuit and meat, on Wednesday afternoon, June 1, at 5:30, at the Grange hall. All are cordially invited. The ladies of the Episcopal church will give a supper for 25 cents, this evening, June 1, at the Grange ball. It will include strawberries and ice cream. From 6 o'clock until all are served. Come, everybody. The new office of J. A. Hamilton & Co. is about completed, and good judges say it is the handsomest little office in town. The outside paneling is in hard •wood, and an ornamental door adds much to its general appearance. The professional card of Dr. Pride will be found in this paper. The doctor had planned to go west and locate, but for the present has given up the idea.. All will be pleased to know that he and his estimable wife are to remain with us. The excavating for the A. D. Clarke building has been resumed n.nd is being pushed as rapidly as possible. The rains have been a source of great hindrance to all building operations this spring, and everything is consequently behind time. Thos, Henderson will begin moving the Baptist parsonage and church this week, and soon the job of the new church will be let. Next week the pastor will be around among the kind friends collecting the first payment on the subscription. Wm, Peck was down from Fenton to attend memorial exercises. He says the first crop of corn he ever raised in Kossuth county, which was 20 years ago, was planted on the 15th of June, and he had as good a yield and as good corn as he has ever raised. One of the plate glass in Galbraith's building, occupied by Jas. Taylor, broke Singer Sewing Machine company, with Algona as headquarters. He has secured office room in the Republican building. He has already proved himself an efficient man and we are glad to note his promotion. Bradley & Nicoulin will occupy the rink with their stock nf machinery, carriages, etc., and will also have their office there for the present, at least. They have an advertisement in this issue which gives full particulars, but you should see their display of vehicles in order to get a proper idea of what kind and the amount of stock they carry. Winkel Bros.' trottingstallion, Byron Sherman, is to be shipped to Syracuse, Neb., about July 1, and put into active work on the track. He goes into the hands of his old trainer, who says he has driven him in 2:24, and predicts he will drive him this summer in 2:20. That's pretty fast time, and we shall watch with some interest for the outcome. No farmers were found sitting on dry goods boxes during the past week or so. The sun has been shining and they have been preparing for and planting corn. They have had several good days for this work lately, and have made good use of them. It is estimated that about half the amount of corn is now planted that will be put in this season in this county. K. S. Larnberson found a new use for harrow teeth last week, when by accident he ran a tooth clear through his hand. It made an ugly wound and prevents his performing any more laborious work than telling how it happened. Just a grain of consolation is found in the fact that he holds a policy in an accident insurance company, and will get $15 a week for the time he is laid up. The city council met last Saturday evening and passed a lot of bills. No business of other importance was transacted. The city has three carloads of water pipes at the depots, but they have not yet decided where to lay out at teams that pass, but this is not the worst of their deviltry. They have killed a hog for Mr. Thornton, a steer for Mr. Staley, and have done more or less damage to the farmers across the river. The time is ripe for vigorous measures, and the sooner they are adopted the better. Cold lead is what these dogs are suffering for,^ and our sports can find something big enough to shoot at if they will go down that way most any day. Let the good work be done and 'done quickly. As showing that a man does not . always know when he has a good thing, we note the receipt of a letter by a party here last week, from a man at Ossian, Iowa, in which he tells of a black mare which he says is trotting in 2:30. He describes her fully and says she was once owned in Algona. The description answers perfectly to a black mare which A. D. Clarke sold to Chas. Lockwood, and which later was owned by Joe Cordingley. She was from the Brewster stock, and while thought to be a likely animal, no one here even guessed that she was fast. There is no doubt but what this is the same mare No day is dearer to the heart of the veteran of the war of the rebellion than the one which is set apart for paying tribute to the memory of those who sacrificed their lives in the struggle which began in '61. It is fitting that it should have become a national holiday—one on which business cares are for the time laid aside, and the day devoted to commemorating the heroic deeds of the boys who wore the blue. The ranks of the veterans are being rapidly decimated, and it will not be long before other hands than theirs will have to take up the work of strewing flowers. But even when the last of the veterans has answered the final summons the work will go on the same as it is done now. And it should be so. No fairer day for memorial exorcises could have been had than was Monday. In all respects it was a perfect day. The post members assembled at their hall at 10:30 a. m., and from there inarched to the Congregational church, which was well filled before their arrival. One could not fail to be impressed with the elaborate floral decorations with which the platform was decked. This was the work of the ladies of the relief corps, and they should be accorded much credit for the manner in which they performed that part of the labor. Added to this were national and grand army emblems, pictures of Lincoln, Grant, Garfleld, and others, all contributing to make it a scene wholly in keeping with the occasion. ; The exercises opened with music by the choir, followed by invocation by Rev. Davidson, and the reading of the general orders by the adjutant, after which came the address of the day by Rev. Dorward. He selected as the theme for his remarks "The Cosmopolitan Influence of American Institutions," and his address was an able and scholarly production. He paid an eloquent and touching tribute to the memory of departed comrades, and closed with the recital of a pathetic incident of the national encampment at Milwaukee, of which he was a witness, and there was ample evidence that he touched the emotional side of his audience. Music by the choir and benediction completed the exercises at the church. At 1:30 p. m. the line of march was formed with the Algona Cornet band in the lead; then came in order themilitia, sons of veterans, veterans, relief corps, little girls with flowers, zouaves, and citizens. Arriving at the cemetery the usual programme of 'decorating the soldiers' graves was followed, after which the ritual exercises and firing of salutes by the militia completed the day's programme. NOTES. Company F makes a good appearance on dress parade. They show evidence of having received good training. Commander Tellier makes a good presiding officer and he performed his part of the ritual exercises in a dignified and becoming manner. Old Mr. Price of Burt was an honored It is good for 25 cents at the The Boston Store.

It seems after all that some aii- iieulty is being experienced in getting enough patrons of the water works on any one street to make it profitable to lay them. The Juvenile Temple entertainment at the Congregational church on Thursday evening of last week was pronounced a success by all who attended. The house was well filled, and the little folks did their character work very acceptably. Much credit is due the ladies who had charge of the affair. Thev put in a good deal of hard work, and'have the satisfaction of knowing that their efforts are appreciated, A half dozen or more farmers with whom we talked said that last Saturday's little rain storm was a good thing. Ordinarily it would be a dangerous thing to make such a remark this spring; but these men said the ground was becoming baked by the hot fun of the past week, and one man said the small grain in some places was turning yellow, and that was why the rain was all right. The only real harm it may have done was in stopping the farmers who were head over heels in corn planting. The California letter this specially entertaining, and, beside giv- ine a fine description of that country, mfntton!'several former Kossuth^county people now residing in the golden $ate Early residents will remember Slaw, •Hr'v _*««««^ tn- alan Mfttt that was owned here, as the parties have traced the matter up and become satisfied on this point. The incident illustrates once more how fortune comes knocking around our doors and we don't know it. What came near being a destructive fire at the home of F. W. Waterhouse occurred one night last week. It was about 12 o'clock at night, and of course the family had all retired some time before. Something awakened Mrs. W., and she aroused Fred, with the alarm that somebody was in the house. Hastily jumping out of bed he heard the cries of the domestic, who sleeps up stairs, and rushing up there found her room all in flames. He went back and got a bucket of water, and by its prompt use he soon succeeded in extinguishing the flames. It developed later that the domestic, on retiring for the night, had turned the lamp down, but did not put it out. By some means the flame came in contact with the oil in the lamp and an explosion followed. The burning oil spread over the room and furniture, and a ruined dresser and considerable bed clothing was the result. It was .a close call for the entire house, and it was only by presence of mind and quick work that the fire was put out. Sherwin-Williams paint, White lead, and oil.

HANDKE, guest on the platform during the morning services. He is past 80 years of age, but he is always to be found in the ranks on memorial day. There was a noticable absence of people from out of town at the memorial services. No doubt the splendid weather kept the farmers in their corn fields, which they could hardly afford to leave. Many elegant wreaths of flowers were deposited in memory of the soldier dead, and each was announced separately by the officer of the day. The inscriptions gave the names, number and name of regiment, when killed, and where buried. There is a notable lack of cadence in the veteran's step these days, which emphasizes the fact that he is feeling the weight of years. But this defect will not be laid up against him. His step was all right in '61, and he performed his duty then most cheerfully. Rev. Flanigan delivered a memorial sermon at the Methodist church last Sunday morning, which is said by all who beard it to have been a most excellent production. The house was filled early, and many were turned away, unable to get even standing room. The post members, by request, on their return from the cemetery, marched past the home of Fred Dormoy, where they halted and saluted their old comrade, who has been confined to his rooms for some time. He is not expected to recover, and the post was glad to tender him this mark of respect. The little girls with flowers, in charge of Dr. McCoy, made a splendid appearance, and contributed much to the general success of the day. There must have been upward of 70 of them in the procession. The doctor, too, contributed much in a general way. He always does a good deal of hard work on memorial day.
