Prof, iGhaffee has secured the public school boilding for his summer school which 'opens Monday. Joel Taylor's mother, now 85 years old fell 'from her chair last week and is suffering from the nervous shock. The Paul yard sold a big bill of lumber toC. F. Hinzlast week for a barn on his farm 3i miles north of •LuVerne. The Womans' Home Missionary Society of the M. E. Church will meet with Mrs. A. D, Bradley inext Thursday at 3 P. M. The annual catalogue of the normal school bas ]U8t been issued and makes a good showing for the first year under the new management. Algona is to have a kinder garten school this summer. Miss Cramer has a large class of little Idlks and will spend her vacation here. The lumber is arriving for the new Catholic church, and 'the walls will loo put in as soon as the work can be done. Paul furnishes the lum'ber. J. W. Tennant is over attending the district grand army encampment «t Clear Lake today. Others were planning to go but the prospect for rain prevented. The UPPER DES MOINES extends congratulations to the Converter fami-. lies over the pleasant social events which the marriage records give promise of. The Baptist church builffiing hae been pulled to its new location, and fhe new frame will soon be added. The old building wotn''t be recognizable in -a few weeks. The work of excavating .for t&e new opera house is beine pushed. Mr. Gall will have the building nip in short order, and the hall will 'be ready for the county fair. Bancroft will celebrate the "everglo- rious" and have a full programme .out in due season. Algona will without doubt contribute liberally to the crowd, for Bancroft always gives-a show worth attending. The ladies of the Baptist church .cordially invite you all, to come to the old church Friday evening, June 17 and they will be pleased to serve you to cake and ice cream. Proceeds for the new church. Bro. Hinchon declines to be a candidate for congress, but who can read his declination and not see that ho has the fine Italian hand that fits him for politics. If no ever means yes, Bro. Hinchon knows how to say it. Letters are advertised at the post office for E. E. Downing, Miss Minnie Erecksen, John Miller, C. E. Anderson, M. A. Blodgett, Wm. Latimpre, Johnson Elrood, L. T. Martin, Miss Mattie Webster, Anders Larson. A company of Pisk university colored jubilee singers gave a concert Thursday evening before a large audience. They were not as good as other companies that have been here, but gave a very pleasing entertainment. P. S. Dingley has bought the lots east of the Congregational church and will use the dirt excavated for the new bank building for filling purposes, Wilfred Jones bought, the remaining lots of the Comstock block. If every county did as well by the national conventions as Kossuth no city would hold the crowds. Pretty nearly every body went to Minneapolis, and pretty nearly every body seems to be booked for Chicago next week. C. L. Lund and Barnet Devine made up a train load of stock for Chicago, which left Sunday morning. Lewis H. Smith and Max Herbst and the two shippers made up the party going in. There were nine carloads in the train. A special train on the Milwaukee will leave Algona Monday next at 3:20 o'clock in the afternoon arriving at Chicago the next morning at 6. This takes the Mason City democrats, and all the Boies boomers from this section. While in Chicago before the editorial excursion we ran onto Borne Woodworth in Lincoln Park. Rome has a good position with A. W. Stevens & Sons, and is an established Chicagoan already. He was looking well and has a* good prospect. In the election for third major of the Fourth regiment, to which Co. P belongs, Col. Humphrey of Sioux City got 319 votes and Capt. Baker of Toledo 168 votes. Campany P gave Humphrey 35 votes and the other man none, so our •boys feel well pleased. The weather of the past week has been great for crops in this section. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday the thermometer ranged above 90 in the shade and the corn started as though to make up for lost time. Kossuth will have corn if there is any anywhere. LuVerne proposes to let the eagle scream in the most approved fashion next month and has committees all arranged and a programme under way. tuVerne knows how to celebrate when occasion demands, and visitors on the fourth will not be disappointed. Spirit Lake is starting out this season with a programme which, includes lectures by Sam, Small till Friday'of week, ^ great convention June 20- 24, 4. and a camp meeting until July The great imusical festival comes August'8-15, while the annual rowing regatta, the Iowa state band, 1 i* 1 * e t and Whitcomb Riley, and Robt. G. Ingersoll are the attractions expected for July. This is the season to visit the lakes for enjoyment. Our Kossuth democrats are too backward about coming forward. Here is a congressional nomination for which J. J. Wilson and J. W. Hinchon are talked, but no organized movement seems to be on foot. Why not name one of them to run with Dolltver. ' Geo. E. Clarkeiflays that the route has not yet been (fully decided on for the crossing of the new railroad over the Northwestern. They are still fig' uring on an overhead crossing and may change the survey. Work has begun on the grading at various places on the line. A big picnic is on deck up at J. H. Grover's Friday, to celebrate the result of the gopher hunt. Willie Grover led the winning sideicoming out 2600 scalps ihead if our informant was correct. There will be a bowery dance, and every thing else fto 'help in making it an enjoyable time. The class of 192'desire toipublicly express their appreciation of the kind efforts of all who rendered .assistance at their exercises last Friday evening and especially those of Mr. Leo. Peugnet, who by his artistic skill and energy, succeeded in producing the pleasant iffect in their decorations. A. L. Belton .returned Saturday from a sad visit to his old home in Pennsylvania, the occasion being the death of bis mother. From the local paper we glean that Mrs. Angeline Belton was 65 years of age, and that stomach trouble was the cause of her death'. She was highly respected in her home circle. Leo Puegnet was visited by the graduating class Monday and was made the recipient of a very handsome present in reward for his services in decorating the stage for their exercises. All who attended have admitted the fine arrangement of curtains and flowers in the church, most of which was his work. Marriage licenses 'have been issued to Gerhard Punke and Margaret Dorweiler, Jos. Dorweiler and Mary Miller, Valentine Miller and Katherine Dorweiler, A. F. Palmer and Mary E. Maricle, Geo. Sutton and Florence Moulton, Emanuel iBuser and Rosa Streit, W. H. Atir.undale and Lillie May Neeling. The action of the "board in refusing to pay the costs in the Horning and Allerman cases is likely to occasion a lively time. Constable Tellier says he is entitled to his fees and intends to test the matter. The board took the ground that the eases amounted to too little for the amount of the costs, and that needless fees had been taxed up. The 'Grand Army Corps, Sons of Veterans, and Woman's relief corps will celebrate the Fourth with a basket picnic, the place still to be selected. This is the only thing in the way of a celebration that Algona will attempt and will be probably as enjoyable as a more elaborate observance. The new cannon hiis arrived, and on that day the national salute will be fired in true military style. About the most warlike scene Algona has lately witnessed was the grand army veterans leading their new brass cannon down from the Northwestern depot Monday. They started out with sprightly step as though they were ready to plant a battery above the clouds, but by the time they, got to the armory they seemed to feel pleased that the distance was no greater. The can< non is a fine large one and will make a roar that will awake the slumbering echoes up and down the Des Moines valley. While at Portland, Or,, we received a letter from Frank Davey, who, with Dr. Taylor and C. B. Campbell, is at Forest Grove. They have the Keely institute for Oregon and are doing a big business. He wrote "we are well and living in the .prettiest town in the richest portion of this great commonwealth." Frank's old friends hereabouts will be pleased to hear of his business success. At Albany, Or., we also met Mrs. Langdon, daughter-in- law of H. S. Langdan, who visited in Algona a year ago. All reports from the big convention indicate that Iowa and Kossuth county were well attended to in the way of getting into the hall. None of our representatives had any trouble in getting admitted, and though quite generally they used their lunga for Elaine, they are as generally pleased now that Harrison won. A. A. Brunson, Geo. W. Hanna, and Mr. Way of Wesley were appointed assistant sergeant at arms, and thus were able to provide for every body. They went early, and, in conventions it is the early bird which gets all there is in sight. They all agree that it was a great convention, and a good natured one in spite of the bitter contest. A sad accident has cast a gloom over the residents of Garfield township. While fishing one day last week the oldest son of Henry Bell fell into Lotts Creek and was drowned. He was 33 years of age, and the father of six children who with his wife mourn his loss. The funeral was held Monday at Henry Bell's home and was one of the largest ever in the county. How the accident happened is a mystery as Bell was over six feet tall and died in less than five feet of water. He undoubtedly suffered from apoplexy or some such trouble, or he would have easily saved himself. He was a healthy, hearty, and well liked young man, and his death is the occasion of great sorrow. At Geo. B. Marble's, Hurt. We intend to move into our new store soon, where we will have more and bet 6 I heartily thank my friends in Burt and vicinity for the very liberal patronage given me, and hope with increased facilities to be able to serve you better. We have some bargains to oner that are worth your while to look at. I am here to sell goods as low as possible, but will not buy cheap, shoddy goods. One hundred nice presents for the first one hundred ladies who call on us 35 Burt, Iowa. Go TO WWkie's hardware and get a barrel of carpet tacks for five cents. WINDIM UP THE STORY, The Last Editor Leaves the Last Car of the Excursion Train at Minneapolis. Closing Scenes of the Trip—Something About John Chinaman—Old Time Algonians Visited. Everyone who goes to the western slope expects to take in as a special object of interest the haunts of our Chinese population and form an opinion for himself about .our Mongolian visit* ors. They make their appearance in small numbers early on the trip, generally in " washee" houses, but it is along the shores of the Pacific that they really occupy the stage, and are seen as they really live. In southern California they are the agricultural laborers, fishers, house keepers, people of all work. In San Francisco they center .and hero are wealthy merchants, and business men of all classes, here are their temples, and theatres, their underground homes, and haunts of Asiatic vice. Thirty thousand of them congregate in a few blocks square in the .city, and a swarm of bees or an ant hill is the only thing in 'nature to be compared to them. Their shops are full, you meet Chinamen and occasional women and children like prairie dogs in one of their cities. In San Francisco this crowding is compulsory, but even where they have room they are gregarious and hang together. Their villages can be recognized anywhere by their narrow streets and closely crowded shanties. The most of our party gave Chinatown in San Francisco a close inspection under the guidance of policemen, and many went to the third story below ground, where the vice, opium smoking, filth and disease, are said to be terrible sights. We saw only the outside here, and visited them more especially at Portland, where they have their second strongest foothold. The result was a mixed opinion on the Chinese -question. It is objected to them that they do not amalgamate with our people, do not become citizens, send all their earnings to China, l\yein a manner abhorrent to our civilized ideas and by so doing are able to underbid our laborers and drive them out, introduce new forms of vice, etc., etc. On the other hand these things are to be said for the Chinaman. He looks clean. No equal number of any other people on earth of the laboring classes are as attractively and cleanly dressed. The only unsightly Chinamen are those who have begun to wear American clothing. Then, too, the Chinamen are generally peaceable, although they have a dangerous criminal class. They are hard workers and money savers. A Portland policeman told us that they are the shrewdest traders on the coast. He says that no other people can compete with them in money making. They are quick witted, good in mathematics, very polite, and in a general way not nearly so repulsive as many other classes admitted freely on the Atlantic seaboard. As to their vices, they seem to be those of all peoples. In going to Chinatown we walked several blocks through Dupont street, and whatever may be seen below ground among the Chinese, there is no doubt about what our own Caucasians are doing above ground. For an open and shameless exhibition of the profligacy of our own people Dupont street beats anything we have ever seen. The Chinese at least give their dens a decent covering. At Portland one evening we went to a Chinese restaurant and at the expense of a night's sleep indulged in some Chinese confectionary, tea, and other in- digestibles. A sad eyed Mongol brought out a harp and played for us. He assured us it was a tune he was giving us, but it sounded very much like the preparatory twanging of a ban jo before the music begins. The restaurant was on the third floor and was handsomely furnished with carved wood work. The Chinese carvings are works of art, in the Joss houses being especially elaborate nnd handsome. We went to the Joss house with a party we took to be Presbyterian elders (the big Presbyterian assembly and editors struck Portland together, two bodies representing the concentrated goodness of the world) one of whom knew Chinese customs. The furniture was magnificent in the temple, but the gods were an ugly looking set. The attendants were just pouring out the tea and setting it before the wooden deities when we came in. We asked them if the tea was drunk up each night, and were assured that the spirits of the little wooden things really devoured it. One of the most curious things we saw was the spiritual healing of the Chinese. Their cure consists of taking a longr tube full of sticks, each bearing a hieroglyph, and shaking it till one falls out. This one tells what remedy is needed, the wooden god presiding over the matter. This ugly deity wore a handsome gold medal, presented by a lady in acknowledgement of a miraculous cure, which we thought excited the disgust of our Presbyterian brethren. Four bits persuaded one of the China- men to take us to a gambling hall, which bore the English name of "Temperance hall." The chief game there seemed to be a species of dominoes. Our guide wouldn't show us an opium den, though there is little in one to excite curiosity, except perhaps the smokers in various stages of intoxication. Many good stories are told on the Chinamen. An old one is about their curiosity over the first cable 1'oad which went through one of their streets in San Francisco. After duly observing its operation a sage pigtail told his brethren about it. "No pushee, no pullee, runnee likehellee allee samee." It is a mistake to assume that all China- men belong to the lower classes. Many are very fine in appearance and manners, and it is a matter of surprise to note how well and how generally they speak English. They do not occupy, however, any such place in public estimation as the Japanese. The latter have not emigrated largely, and those who hare come have adopted American manners and acquired an American education. We had for nearly a week on our excursion a young Japanese baron, on his way to Ann Arbor for a college course. He was about 18 years old, and a perfect gentleman. He talked brokenly, but could be understood sufficiently to discover that he did not wholly approve of our democratic manners. Being crowded and jostled by the ordinary people did not agree with his experience at home. Twelve carloads of our excursionists went north to Portland, and our ride to and reception at this metropolis of Oregon were among the most enjoyable Features of the trip. Our farewell to California was as we passed Mt. Shasta and ran for hours over the mountain range. The scenery was as grand as any in Colorado, and Mt. Shasta, although not so high as Pike's Peak, rises so much more abruptly from the surrounding level that it is much more striking in appearance. It seems to stand alone in a plain, and its snow laden sides rise in an isolation that gives it a peculiarly noble and massive appearance. Mt. Hood, which we saw next day as we rode on the Columbia river, also rises alone and also has that appearance of solitary grandeur. Mt. Tocoma, said to be the finest of them all was so obscured by clouds that wo did not even get glimpses of it. Pike's Peak rises out of other mountains but these stand out distinct in ovory outline, magnificent specimens of what nature has done. Our reception at Portland began at Oregon City, where at the cascades of the Willamette wo were taken by boat down the river to the city. Lunch and music, supper and the theatre were the progrmaraofor the evening, rides about the city and a boat ride up the world-famed Columbia filled in the following day. The famous steel cruisers, the "Baltimore" and "Charleston" were lying in the harbor and on our trip we boarded the latter peacably and inspected the equipment of the boat which captured the Chilian "Itata." The ride on the Columbia did not quite take us to the famous cascades, but was enough to give some intimation of the scenery to be expected in the gorges 3,000 feet deep through which the torrent passes the mountain range. Portland hospitality was just the same as California hospitality, unbounded, and Portland itself impressed all as one of the handsomest and best cities on the coast. Many Iowa people are here and among them we met Clarence Mills whose parents owned the farm between D. Wallace's and O. C Walker's east of Algona. They now have a cattle ranch over the mountains from Portland, and like their new home. Here also we met Mrs. Jos. Paquet and daughter, daughter and grand daughter of Mrs. T. R. Blottenberger, who came to Kossuth in early days, and took the claim across the river from Barnet Devine's. Mrs. B. is a sister o_f A. J. Jones, and we regretted not seeing her. At Portland we were turned over by the Southern Pacific railway, which had taken us at Los Angeles and furnished us the trip through California. It is the only road that traverses the state, and the traveler who desires to see California can take no other. But in spite of the lack of competition the equipment of the Southern Pacigc is second to none, and if the attentions shown the editors be accepted as a test, in leaves nothing undone to make traveling convenient and comfortable. So far as we observed the trains on both Southern and Northern Pacific were equal to if not superior to those in the eastern states. Certain it is that they furnish every convenience for pleasant travelling. As the programme above Portland was rather indefinite we left the excursion at Olympia, the capital of Washington, and spent a day with Dr. Geo. W. Inghatn who is located there. Another half day at Chehalis with old- time frends, kept us from seeing Seattle at all, and our glimpses of Tacoma were very brief. The excursionists, however, were received in both cities in royal style, and then taken by boat up the sound to Victoria on Vancouver's Island, where our English neighbors provided one of the pleasantest entertainments of the trip: All the cars but one returned from Tacoma to Portland and so south to Salt Lake City. This one after we were well located in it, was found to have iron wheels, and the Northern Pacific will only haul cars having paper wheels on account of the danger of breaking on the curves over the mountains. This trouble was a serious one, for the sleeping berths on the regular train were engaged four days ahead on account of the Minneapolis convention, and it looked for awhile as though ourTacoma visit might be protracted. But by dint of telegrams and urging the N. P. finally consented to haul our car, and after a day wasted we set out. We saw, however, something of Tacoma, which is a finely built up city full of enterprise and evidence of business prosperity. We missed seing any of the Algo- nians there, Dick Rist and Mr. and Mrs. S. B. Baker among the rest. To Spokane Falls from Tacoma is a night's ride. We arrived in the morning and left in the evening spending a pleasant day with our former citizens. We found among others Robert Patterson, Jas. Paine and Gene Shadle in the double front Crescent dry goods store, and afterwards visited Col. Comstock and his family, and R. J, Danson. The colonel Is building a home in the fashionable part of the city, about like his old Algona residence. A few blocks above this Mr. Danson has just completed a home, also very fine. They all enjoy Spokane, and their pride in the city is warranted, for it is on the whole the best looking small city we have seen. The big fire which destroyed the old business portion cleared the ground for new and stylish buildings while the residences are everywhere equal to any on the coast. The falls are beautiful, and the city lies on a level plateau above them on both sides of the river, surrounded by the adjoining mountains. We could only judge of business by what our people seemed to be doing, The Crescent store has seven clerks, and is one of the leading houses of the city, while Mr. Danson has a leading place at the Spokane bar. Col. Comstook has a broker's office, and devotes part of his time to literary studies being leader of a Shakespeare club, and otherwise interested in various societies In the oity. Spokane has about 30,000 people, Is the distributing point for the whole country east of the mountains, has all the leading mil ways, and IB bound to be, a. big city. . ^k* We felt Spok^e - " te " We Have Removed to the rink on State street with our stock of Buggies, Implements, and carry a full line.

The early night saw us well up in the mountains passing some of the most beautiful scenery in America, along lake Pend d'Oreille, the full moon lighting it. Morning found us in Montana, Helena being passed at noon, and Livingston, where the branch road turns to the Yellowstone in the afternoon. Monday morning found us in the Dakota bad lands. The mountain scenery of the Northern Pacific at this season is more than usually attractive, the Rockies being heavily covered with snow, so much so that the national park has been late in opening. The bad lands were not unlike the Arizona plains, or the stretches of buttes and waste in Wyoming, Colorado, or Nebraska. The "Great American Desert" stretches in unbroken sameness through the whole extent of the national domain though it is in fact no desert for here as in the south the herds of cattle and sheep and horses, and the shanties of the herders prove that even the barren plains are producing wealth. Tuesday noon the last excursionist of the last car got off at Minneapolis and thus ended a trip of over 7,000 miles. THE six weeks summer session of the normal school will be held in the public school building at least until the repairs at the normal building are completed. Those entering will assemble at the high school room at 9 a. m. next Monday morning. This session has been advertised throughout the county and will be well attended by teachers and by many others who are in need of reviews of the common branches.

Uoad what she says: "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 Paiu Balm. I got it from our druggist, Mr. ,T. 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 over were." Fifty cent bottles for sale by druggists.
