Presiding Elder Black held quarterly meeting at Whittemore Sunday and baptised 17 converts, three by immersion in Cylinder creek. It was an interesting day with the Methodists of the west part of tho county. And now it is Carter & Son at the big grocery store. The addition to the firm is a late arrival, and if anyone thinks the partnership is not agreeable to the head of the house he can find out his mistake by mentioning the matter. The old normal school students are arranging a reception for the near future at which it is expected to have Prof. Gilchrist, Prof, and Mrs. Geo. E. Heed, and a number of the former students and graduates of the school present. A telegram from Bert Edmonds, who entered the bicycle races at Marshal- town, says that he " won everything in Bight."

Geo. E. Clarke informs us that the new railroad across the county wil wake an overhead crossing south o Ledyard, near the line of the presen survey. This means no town on th< Northwestern, but one on each side leaving Ledyard as the only Northwest tern station.

In a late note J. W. Bartlett says: ' I wish you all could see the corn crop f some of the counties near this city vhere I have been during the last week r two; fine does not express it, im- nense is a better word, and the small grain and fruits cannot be beat anywhere. Growing cotton is a novelty to me; it looks more like cockel burr ilants than anything else I know of. ?hey tell me it is not doing well on ac- ount of too much wet in this section nd too much dry in some others. The veather is very pleasant; warm enough p suit a salamander, but nearly all the ime a nice breeze which is especially nice at night. Hope you are are all food Harrison republicans up there. ?he indications ar,e that this state will give about all its electoral votes to ileveland by 200,000 majority." FEESOffAL MOVEMENTS. C. C.

IN Molt OF offi How the Natal Day Was Observed in This Section—Hon. W. E. Morrison at Bancroft. 'icnics and Merry Gatherings Filled In the Day Throughout the County —One Accident. Bancroft had the biggest crowd Monday that ever gathered in the north end. At Algotm alone 272 tickets were iold, and north of town the county urhed out in mass. The drawing card was W. E. Morrison's oration, which was very fine. The Algona band furnished music, and races, and other regulation Fourth of July entertainments were provided, Algona showed up well in the sports, Staley winning the oot race by 22 feet in 100 yards. Corey won the horse race, and Dolton the )icycle race. Everybody speaks well >f the celebration, and especially of Mr. VIorrison's effort, which had an added nterest on account of his long residence n the place. One of the pleasnntest features of the Burt celebration Monday was the re- jiting of the Declaration of Independence by Miss Carrie Goodwin, a normal tudent. She gave it from memory and n a very fine manner. Geo. E. Marble ixtended the welcome in a neat speech, ind B. P. Reed let the eagle soar in iis most approved Fourth of July style, giving a very fine address. A big rowd gathered from the surrounding country, and Burt made very elaborate >reparations to entertain all. Base >all and races made a day of it. Big bowery dances at Raney's four miles south of Irvington and at Irving;on marked the Fourth, and a picnic at O'Rourke's. The \Vhitte_niore celebration was at- anded by a big crowd from the west >art of the county and from eastern Palo Alto. The oration by J. W. Sulli- uan is highly spoken of by those who were there from Algona, and was worthy of the occasion and the audience. The grand army picnic in Call's jrove was a pleasant affair. There were no speeches but a good basket dinner. The Scandinavians held a picnic in she woods north of town, which was well attended. Probably the gayest rig lately seen was the excursion wagon decorated by J. J. Ryan and B. W. Haggard, and Hied with a party which picnicked in tlackman's grove. The enthusiasm over our patriotic sires found expression in yells which are probably still •esounding over the prairies towards [rvington. Rev. Platt of California, a brother of eo. Platt and of S. C. Platt of Lu- Verne was announced as the speaker at " uVerne. We have no report, but can safely state that LuVerne had a good ;ime and a big celebration. It is a way ;ho town has. AN ACCIDENT. The Sunday quiet of the Fourth was broken in Algona in the evening by the unexpected firing of a rocket at Peter Winkel's. He had two, and laid one on ;he walk while he shot the other. The ire from the one he was handling touched off the one on the walk, and it went down the street in fine style till t came to a girl named Anderson, who was struck in the thigh and slightly cut. Dr. Barr was quickly called and dressed the wound, which was not nearly so serious as at first reported. A team tied to the walk, not liking the ooks of the rocket, made a hasty exit, .ind the people generally felt as though an earthquake had come. A PLEASANT WEDDING. Tlie Youngest Daughter of C. S. Porter Married at McPkerson, Kan.— Old. Algonians Recalled. Old friends and acquaintances of Mr. Porter, for some time-a resident of Algona and connected with the First Na- lional bank, will be interested in the report of the wedding of his youngest daughter, Mame, which we take from the McPherson, Kan., Democrat: " As the grand strains of Mendelssohn's wed' ding march pealed forth the cunning little flower girls, Miss Zetta Lewis, niece of the bride, and Miss Gretta ampbell, followed by Miss Mattie con, slowly proceeded down the broad aisle; at a little distance behind them camo Miss May Boraberger and Miss Helene Moore; at a short interval walked Miss Mame Gary and Miss Joey Pyle. As the procession moved on the interest deepened, for next came the bridesmaid, Miss Bess Gary, leaning on arm of the groomsman, Mr. Daniel McHenry, brother of the groom; and finally appeared the fair bride and the groom. The ceremony was the ring service performed by the Rev. Willis G. Banker, and its adoption was very beautiful and solemly impressive. The prayers were uttered, the ring was E laced, the words were spoken and the appy couple were no longe^ twain The bride was attired in white faille made en train, high, round neck, loni sleeves, and wore white gloves am veil. The elegant simplicity of hei gown was more than becoming. Mrs Lewis, sister of the bride, wore a charming gown of black lace and laven der flowers. At the conclusion of the ceremony the wedding party were driv en to the residence of Mrs. Lewis on S Walnut street, where a reception was given to the bride and groom's friends and relatives. There were many beati ful gifts from the friends of the brid and groom." Since leaving Algona Mr. Lewis am Mr. Porter's son have both died. Mrs Lewis lives in McPherson. Harvest Excursion Tickets.

Mr. "W. M. Terry, who has been in the rug business at Ellcton, Ky,, for the past 2 years, says: "Chamberlain's Congh temedy gives better satisfaction than any ther cough medicine I have sold." There s good reason for this. No other will cure cold so quickly: no other is so certain a reventative and cure for croup; no other ffords so much relief in cases or whooping ough.

It may be a little late to say so, bu the fact is that we have one of the fines buggy and carriage repositories in Al gona to be found in the state of Iowa and if anyone will visit the Algon Wigwam and reach any other cphclu sion then we will give up and admi that we are not posted. We were mucl surprised the other day, on visitinj that old and reliable institution, to fin< such a display of really fine work.

Cummins of es Moines and Milton Romley of Iowa ity were choson. The report of the resolution commit- ee was awaited with interest. It con- ained a reference to President Harri- administration, and denounced 10 plank in the national democratic latform favoring the removal of the ational tax. The one plank of iuiport- nce is as follows: " The platform enunciated by the ropub- cun national convention is broad enough, ,rong enough, and all sufficient us the basis '. union in the contest before us. While o unhesitatingly ratify and endorse that latform in all its parts, we point with pecinl pride to the atitudo upon the tariff sue, the silver problem, the temperance uestion, and its demands for a pure and itrammoled ballot." A minority report was made to the onvention in favor of local option for le state, and another resolution was fered urging that the temperance lank of the last state convention be dopted, but both were laid on the tale. Geo. E. Clarke was the Tonth dis- ict member of the platform cornrnit- ee. At the close of the convention the tate central committee met and organ- zed. M. K. Whelan of Esthorville continued as the Tenth district member, J. E. Blythe of Mason City as chosen to succeed Senator Mack as Imirman, Dr. Matthews as vice-chairman, and E. J. Salmon as secretary, 'he following resolution was adopted y the committee: "Whereas, The Hon. E. B. Muck has rved the republican party efficiently and yell for two campaigns; therefore bo it "Resolved, By the republican state cen- _'al committee that we who know him best nd who know his efficient work as an or- anizer tender to him our sincere thanks on ehalf of ourselves and the republicans of owa." TENTH DISTRICT CAUCUS. The Tenth district met at court room To. 1, and was called to order by M. K. iVhelan of Emmet. The caucus organized by selecting 'apt. Head of Green county as chairman, and J. J. Bruce of Poc'ahontas ounty, secretary. D Z. A. Church of Greene county was ominated for elector. The caucus then elected committee- nen as follows: Credentials, Hon. Euene Secor of Winnebago; resolutions, Hon. Geo. E. Clarke of Kossuth; permanent organization, F. A. Bennett of arroll. Chas. K. Myers of Crawford was elect- d vice president. The following resolution was adopted y a vote of 33 to 21: Whereas, The cause of temperance can- ot be affected by the result of this cam- aign, therefore, be it Resolved, That it is the sense of this cau- us that the platform to bo adopted by this onvention should not mention, prohibition, nd that the member of the committee on esolutions from the Tenth congressional istrict is hereby instructed to use all hon- rable means to secure its omission from he platform. Dolllver llenomlnated. The congressional convention met at Boone, Thursday, and S. S. Sessions was made secretary. Geo. W. Hanna ivas chosen from Kossuth on the congressional committee. Dolliver was nominated by M. D. O'Connell of Fort Dodge, and D. C. Chase of Webster Ity seconded in behalf of Senator £amrar. The vote was a rising one md the vote unanimous. The Register in reporting this contention says: " Mr. Dolliver made a rery happy speech to the convention, ;hanking them for the honor and al- uding gracefully to all the other gen- Jemen who have been nominated for .he position. He then went on and showed how the party had met the necessities of the times in the past four rears, by expanding the currency, increasing the home market, opening near foreign markets, etc., alluding especially to the American pig, which he laid went into every foreign port with smiles of peace on his face and the curl >f content in his tail. He told of com- ng from Chicago two days ago, where le was saddened to see in an ash barrel ;he familiar face of our governor in evidence of Iowa's recent greatness. The Hawkeye club and Tammany had 'alien on each others necks, in the bonds of a common affliction, and it made him sad to see the Iowa democrats who went to Chicago with car loads of enthusiasm and no experience, had returned with carloads of experience and no enthusiasm. Mr. Dolliver declared that under the matchless leadership of Harrison, Reed, McKinley, Blaine and others, the party had made a record during the past four years which would carry it to certain victory, now that the democrats for the first time in their history have stated their real position on the tariff, He said the interest of the American farmer lies in the prosperity of the American work shop."

History and poetry celebrate no sub- limer act of devotion than that of Albert G. Dreckor, the watchman of the Passaic river drawbridge, on the New York and Newark railroad. The train was due, and he was closing the draw, when; his little child fell into the deep water. It would have been easy enough to rescue him if the father could have taken the time, but already the thundering train was at hand. It was a cruel agony. His child could be saved only at the cost of other lives committed to his care. The brave man did his duty, but the child was drowned.—New York Press. Impnro Ice ami Typhoid Fovor. Some years ago Dr. Charles Smart, of the United States army, traced the cause of mountain fever to tho molting snow of the Rocky mountain streams, and inferred that the germs of this typho-ma- larial fever were brought down from the atmosphere by snow, remained frozen during winter, and then passed into the streams in an active condition when tho snow molted in May, June and Jnly. It is frequently tho case that impure ico is the agent of transmitting typhoid and other fevers.—Engineering Magazine. Alarlc's Grave. Vf is said that when Alaric, the conqueror of Rome, died, that "a river was turned aside to make a place in its bed for his grave, and when ho was buried the water was again let into its former channel, and the prisoners who had helped to bury him were killed so that no one might find out where the con- qneror of Rome was buried."—Yankee Blade.
