He speaks every evening at the Cohgregational church. Two unpleasant scandals are reported in the county. As neither one is yet brought into court we make no mention of them. Supervisor Holtz had a case in justice court last week in Algona, which he conducted himself. His argument to the court was very eloquent, and won a judgment. F. S. Stough's motto is "The Best is the Cheapest," and he keeps the best and the cheapest. Read his advertisement this week. The' card of Dr. Holtfoerster of West Bend in this issue introduces a new physician to to our readers in the west part of the county.

It was voted <*& the teachers' meeting Saturday to Kave synthetic reading at the institute instead of physical culture and Superintendent Cairey informs us that the 'decision will be I adopted. Eat'ly or late this country can't be fyeat for seasons. A. J. /Robinson says ;the best crop of oats he over saw raised In the county were sowed! on the seventh day of May. They were) on D. King's farm. J. M. Cowan and T. H« Conner were in Emmetsburg last wee k figuring on some of the new buildin/gs to go up there this season. They report that the burg will build a nuimber of fine blocks. B. M. Richmond is giving Bancroft metropolitan airs. His -^{ovk is such that he finds a stenographer a necessity and has now secured a L % from the south part of the state to jr"7 shorthand and type writiug G. H. Lampson is n<^ among the lucky ones. Hi ; his pension papers and month from last July. :,V pleased over the result, at rejoice with him. ^ The following item of 4 \ numbered is received 'its $12 a , well friends $et is in the Sioux City local column: Tonight A. L. Hudson will speak on " Tennyson and the Questions of the Day," at the Unity club meeting, held in the parlors of the Unity church. Arbor day comes a week from Friday. The leaflets sent by the state superintendent have been mailed by Superintendent Carey, and it is thought that the directors and teachers wil unite in generally observing the day. T. H. Conner is now at work preparing plans for a double front brick block at Spencer in addition to the one he has contracted t'j build, and is also drawing plans for a double front brick at Eagle Grove. As an architect ho can not bo beaten in Iowa. The evangelistic meetings at the Congregational church began Sunday. H. G. Smead was present nnd preached both morning and evening to largo congregations. He is accompanied by H. J. Petran, who leads tho singing. The meetings will continue two weeks or more. Rev. Black attended a meeting of the camp meeting committee of this conference at Britt, Monday. After duo deliberation Livermore was chosen for the coming meeting, which will be held August 25-81. Liver more is n, good choice, conveniently located, and well able to provide grounds, etc. Owen Brunei' was at Boone last week and bought out a barber shop there which lie will take possession of tho 1st of May, It is a three chair shop with bath rooms, and has a good patronage. While hero Mr. Brunei 1 has made many friends, and in him Boono will secure a first class barber and business man. The sale of machinery for the past few weeks is an indication of the increased farming operations of the season. J. R. Jones says he never did anywhere near the business before, and Nicoulin, W. W. Jones, and A. M. & G.M. Johnson all report big sales. At this rate tho whole county will soon be farmed. S. S. Sessions has received a supply of sugar beet seed and is prepared to supply all who want it. Full instructions on how to raise are sent by the agricultural department, but they do not differ much from those for ordinary beet culture. Rows should be 18 inches apart, and vigorous plants eight to 10 inches apart in the row. All old settlers, and new ones, too, will be interested in Mr. Call's sketch of the life of Algona's pioneer landlord. The old "St. Nicholas," later "Wisconsin house," stood many years on the north side of the square, and was for many years our only hotel. Mr. Henderson was a popular landlord, and was one of the most highly esteemed among the band of pioneers. Our new Wesley paper sta.rts out with an announcement which it heads salutary." This may mean that tho paper is healthy, or that it is in a healthy town. In either event we are pleased to welcome our salutary neighbor, into tho salutary atmosphere of Kossuth, and hope it has none but salutary designs, and will advocate none but salutary measures. The first weather and crop bulletin is issued this week from Des Moines. It indicates that the state is having the same weather we are. It concludes: Though the season is late the present conditions are not unprecedented, and there is yet ample time for seeding and securing a harvest of old-time proportions.' The outlook is especially favorable for fall wheat, grass and wheat, Sheriff Stephens was in the eastern part of the state last week and bought seven mares which he brought back with him. He has purchased tho Lat- tirnore land across the river by Mr. Block's and will make a farm of it, presumably a horse farm. He and E. P. Bircher are joint owners of two fine stallions, and taking it all together our sheriff is getting to be quite an enthusiast on horses. Prof, Cornwall delivered addresses Sunday and Monday evenings at the Methodist church on the question of prohibition in Iowa. He proved to be a,n able and interesting speaker. His object is to strengthen prohibition sentiment especially in view of the coming legislative contest. An organized temperance movement over the state is being organized to have none but friends of the existing law put into office. A goodly number of teachers attended the meeting at the school house Saturday, We were in to hear a lively discussion on whether the scholar should be left to figure out hard problems for himself, or should get hints from his teacher. The debate recalled painful memories of earlier times and wo retired at its close. A very profitable meeting is reported, as indeed are all the meetings in the county. At Bancroft one teacher came 20 miles to attend, and one walked eight miles in and back. It will interest our readers to know that the larpe government contract for putting in the works at Gal- veaton harbor, Texas, .has been secured by Barney Lantry, brother of o\ir treasurer. His bid was a little less than $3,000,000, which indicates the size of the undertaking, Mt, Lantry is a big man in the Sante Fe railroad System, and has made a fortune in Kansas and the southwest. Mr. 'Clm'schilles, who is our informant, says /that opening this Galveston harbor will &e the cause of a big boom i'n Texas, The city well 'again begins to attract attention. We 'hivd 'hoped this valuable news resource misfh't be left till the dry summej. 1 season, ''When the public interest would be at its height, but worlds soon to begirraiid the chronicle must go on. Mi 1 .-Stephens will sink a four and one-halfIhph pipe in the middle of 'the well. Tb. ; lihis he will' attach a number of sand: points running to the bed of the water. The pump can be attached to this ; pip6 so as to draw.directly on these "smaller pipes. This is the tubular well system in use at Sioux City, Independence, and elsewhere, and Mr. Stephens thinks the best for this well. He is confident of getting all the water 'the pump can handle. A serious assault case' was tried before Justice Taylor last Thursday, in which R. Bowman was held under $50C bonds to meet the grand jury. He waived examination. W. C. Bowman, his brother, stood trial and was acquitted. The facts seemed 'to be that Col. Spencer had sent the Bowmans ou1 to get some hay he had bought of Wm. Nolan. Nolan refused to let the hay go and words led to blows 'with, bale hooks in which Nolan got the worst of it. Nolan's son testified that tho Bowmans began tho row, and they both agreed that Nolan began it. W. C. Danson defended Bowman, and proved enough to warrant the release of his man. The other is still in jail, having failed to secure bail. A large number of friends nnd acquaintances gathered at the Methodist church Sunday afternoon to attend tho funeral of W. J. Boals, who died hist Thursday after a long illness. Among those present were three brothers of the deceased, 0110 from Illinois, one from Nebraska, and one from Sioux City. Rev. Whitficld preached a brief but appropriate funeral sermon, nnd a large number, in spite of the rain, followed the remains to tho grave, Mr. Boals wns a well known figure in Algona. Ho came to tho county in 18t9, and located on Four Mile creek on tho rond to Whittemore. He mndo good improvements, and leaves a family who have tho respect and esteem of all. In politics Mr. Boats was a staunch democrat. The ''Evening with Longfellow" at tho court house drew a largo audience last night. It proved in every way a successful entertainment, and the np- precisition of tho people was mtiao manifest in no uncertain manner. Mrs. Bugncll of Webster City gave two very entertaining recitations, and Presiding' Elder Blnck of this place gave a most instructive account of his experiences in Nova Scotia, and also of the history of tho French settlement whoso removal by tho English is recorded in "Evnngeline." Wo lack space to give till the mention tho performers arc entitled to, and can only say that tho musical programme called out tho best talent Algona affords. With BO much local capability of getting up lino entertainments, Algona should have them oftener. Tho high school declamatory contest camo Friday evening and was attended by a largo audience. Eig_ht speakers participated, Miss Hart being sick, and it is safe to say surprised tlioso present by the uniform improvement shown. Although the selections wore long, and some of them very ambitious, they were rendered in good stylo throughout. The judges, Prof. McCollum, Supt. Carey, and Prof. Carter, awarded the first place to Miss Lizzie Wallace, who recited "The Death Bridge of tho Tay," and second and third places wore won by Guy Taylor and Bertha Hancock. The marks were verv close, Miss Wallace having 270 out of 800, Guy Taylor 204, and Bertha Hancock, 2084. Prof. Dixson will go with Miss Wallace to the state contest which will bo hold .it Monticello April 24, All will wish the Algona representative good luck on tliat occasion. Walter Thomas died at the homo of his daughter, Mrs. E. Tellier, Friday .ifternoon. Ho was an old settler of Humboldt county, and well known to arly settlers of this county. Ho was born in Washington county, N. Y., in August, 1818, came to Fox Lake, Wis., in 1856, and in December, 1857, came to Dakota City. Here he made a hotel out of an old building owned by McKnight. Then ho moved to his farm and lived there till a few years ago tvlien health failed. For some months lie has lived at his daughter's in Algona. Mr. and Mrs. Tellier went with ,he remains to Humboldt, Saturday, to inter them in the cemetery there, which lies on the old Thomas homo- stead, Mr. Thomas was grandfather of Mrs. E. G. Bowyer, and Mrs. Rufus Walston, Mrs. Newman, Mrs. Tellier, and Walter Thomas are children well cnown in Algona. Justice Thompson's court has the lionor of establishing a new and far- reaching precedent. Tho wife must my for the breeches. Marriage can no .ouger be considered a failure by tho young man of good habits and short :)urse. The first woman to learn this .aw to her sorrow is the wife of Ed. Denson, a Milwaukee railway employe. Her property was attached by John "coders to pay for her husband's pants. B. F. Reed eloquently and learnedly showed the justice of 'this proceeding, md W. C. Danson as ' eloquently and learnedly showed it a dastardly invasion of tho female domain. But'Squire Thompson holding the balances of justice with impartial hand, found tho plaintiff's side to come down with weight, and the jury agreed with the judge. Tho wife must pay for the pants. Whether this decision will be bailed as another proof that women are widening their field of rights and responsibilities wo wait to learn.
