The notice of the annual old settlers' meeting in two weeks should be read by every 20 year resident of the county, and acted upon. Rev.

Some of the riders expect to change the record. Coleinan Chubb has improved slightly during the week, and is able to be up and about the house. He still has trouble in swallowing anything. Capt.

The date and location of the annual conference of the Methodists have been fixed. It will occur at Fort Dodge Sept, 16, and Bishop Ninde will preside. L. L.

Robison went to Bancroft Thursday to take charge of the hew lumber yard there. 'Our northern neighbors will find him a thorough business man, and a genial trader. The foundations are in for Edwin Blaokford's new home -"south of Maple Park, and W. C. Danson's north of O C. Walker's. Both are making fine additions to Algona's fine residences.

Mayne was down f.rom : Bancrof •Monday and says Rev. Ward has pat ented a job printing press which prom- ses to be an improvement on anything now in use. Rev- Ward is an old-time machinist,a nd he has a bonanza if his press is what he expects. H. J. Edens' brother-in-law is agent .t the express office in Carroll, which was robbed of $4,000 Saturday night. le was not on duty at night, but his assistant Was gagged and the money >aken. Collie Chubb was down from the cat- le grounds Saturday. He says there ,re 50,000 cattle now feeding between Sstherville and Forest City. If flax is , good crop this year the herd grounds will be ruined. Reporter Grier says Emmetsburg is ull of Algonians at work on the McCormack bank building. Conner and Cowan got a $10,000 contract to build it and ire there in full force. They took all ;he masons they could get. Prof. Dixson's children are down with scarletina, and he is now boarding it the hotel, so as to continue his work it school. They are not seriously sick, >ut the disease being ^contagious ho of course has to keep free from it. John G. Smith was tied with Budd and Grimm for the state medal at Des Moines but lost it to Budd in the shoot- off. S. S. Sessions won a big first mon- y in one shoot by himself. No one of 2 shooters in the match tied him. Ben Smith says that Ramsay is giv- ng sugar beets a trial this year. He ind his neighbors have together about wo acres planted. If the Marshall;own sugar factory succeeds beets may )ecome a valuable crop in this section. A new shoemaker takes Herman ilaut/.ow's place and is building a shop near the wigwam. Herman talks of eaving Algona, but wo hopo he willre- o^isider. What protection will tho vindow glass have in case of fire if he goes? A silver medal contest will bo held at the Congregational church Friday 3vening. A number of the young peakers of town will participate and and this will bo fully as entertaining as my previous one.

His prices speak for themselves. J. H. Jones says that 4,000 cattle lave gone between his place, three miles west, and town this spring to tho northern herd grounds. The number of cattle in the country is astonishing. Clio Mclnroo herd at Tuttle's lake has over 3,000 head. When the new blouses for Company i 1 were given out, Marshal Dailey ound that his had rebel buttons on. le didn't like the idea-of having a southern army coat, and will have the juttons ripped off, and some U.

Aug. and Wm. Shrader canvassed in ;own last week for money to build the Lutheran church north of A. L. See- ey's. They received a liberal donation .n Algona. It is to be said to the cred- ,t of the people that they have given very freely to build churches in all parts of the county. Rev. Davidson lias been invited to deliver the address at the masonic gathering to be held at Clear Lake on 3t. John's Day, Juno 24. This is the annual district meeting, and members of the order will be present from a large number of lodges. The invitation is a high compliment to Rev. Davidson. An old road dispute was brought to a lead last week when the Union officials cut the fence which old gentleman Hermann had put across the highway, lermann owns the land, but the road las been used 30 years, and there is no other way to get to town. The matter will be heard by the county board next week, W. B. Quarton wont up to Bancroft yesterday to help straighten out a ,vatch trade, of which one man was iired. It was in court, and the jury wrought in a verdict that each man should have his property back in as jood shape as when he traded. Our ittorney is trying to find out now which side won. A petition to the city council is being circulated asking that body to investigate whether there is drunkenness in Algona. With the well on its hands the council seems to have all it can attend to. If anyone knows of violations of law he should call the'city marshal's attention to the same, or file information before some justice. A member of the firm which is putting in the co-operative creameries has been out the past week getting matters fixed up. Several towns refuse .to accept the work as not being what they contracted for, and they are especially dissatisfied with the delay in getting to work-. A good part of the creamery season is lost to some of them. The'city well matter has reached a new stage now and it is likely something 'will be done. The well committee have'decided to allow Mr. Stephens to go ora with the well if he will get the Des Moines digging machine here al once, and he telegraphed to DOS Moines Monday tp see what he could do. He will now dig the present wel through the sand. Wm. Peck in Fenton refused $35 an acre for his farm last winter, and this spring he has refused $36 and says he must have $40 or the farm. Nineteen years ago he drove into Kossuth with $50 in money in his pocket, and a team worth $60. He has 200 acres as fine land as there is in Iowa, with improve ments to match, and his success showi what can be done and has been done. A. A. Call received an amusing lettei last week from a mail carrier whi thought be had a poor contract. Hi wrote that he had rather be in h—— than running mail route at his presen wages. Mr. Call wrote in reply tha he might think now that the hot plac preferable but that when ho got here he would change his mind, and DC glad to get back to the mail route. The sheriff of Chatauqna county, New York, took Ryan lost week, as stated in ur last issue. While here he said that he people acquainted with all the facts vere interested in securing Ryan's pun- shment, and that no effort will be pared to bring him to justice. The ounglady in the case is highly re- pected and was misled and betrayed y Ryan. He left with his man Thursay. A call for a mass temperance conven- ion to be held in Algona, June 4—next veek Thursday — is handed in this morning too lato for publication in full, t is signed by sixty representative cit- zens of the county, and is expected to oico the sentiment of Kossuth on pro- ibition. We learn also that Mrs. J. lllen Foster will address the meeting, t will undoubtedly be the occasion of a irgo gathering. The advertisement of the state bank f Bancroft appears this week, and peaks for itself. It has the largest apital of any bank in the county, and his spring is putting in a fine brick uilding for a home. S. T. Mesorvoy, nd A. N Botsford of Fort Dodge went rom Algona yesterday to oversee it efore returning to Ft. Dodge. Mr. leservoy is president and ono of the est business men in northern Iowa. The Aetna company have at last got round to fix the jail cages us agreed pon when the board settled with them. They sent the new rods to Rob. Philps o put in, but ho found them not hard- nod, and sent back for the company to end a man to fix them. The export ar- ived Monday, and yesterday began omporing the rods. As soon as they ro ready Philpa will put them in ,the ages, and our jail will be proof against use knives, etc. W. F. Carter's visit to Des Moines t week resulted in the arrival at Alois* of a lino bred tnare, five years old, amed Hypatia, sired by Star of the >Vest, record 2,26i, out of dam Julia Jlevoland, etc. The catalogue says Hypatia " is a very fine filly and strong- y bred in Morgan and Clay and inbred o Geo. M. Patchen." The mare comes rom the best stock, and gives promise f producing colts that will have re- ords. Her arrival at Algona gives he county another fine high bred orse. Married, at the residence of the ride's parents on Wednesday evening, ^ay 20th, Mr. C. B. Sarchett and Mrs. adie A. Patterson. The marriage ceremony was performed by Rev. Faus of Burt. After the ceremony the guests nd their host retired to the dining com where they did ample justice to lie liberal supply of viands set before hem. There were many useful and aluable presents given by friends to he young couple starting out in life. ?HE UPPER DES MOINES joins a host f friends in extending congratulations.

Presiding Elder Black made very happy speech, and so did Rev. Glasgow, whoso marriage to Miss Clara ^Villey here gives him a local standing. ?his evening Rev. Parsons of Mason ty delivers an address. We publish this week an excellent etting forth of the merits of Holstein attle for Kossuth, written by E. B. Butler, for many years a successful 3reeder. This is part of a series of let- ers on breeds of cattle that we shall jive. Every farmer who is interested n the cattle records should cut these ut for future reference. The cow will ilways be the center about which farm- ng will turn in this section. Which is he best cow is a question of interest. Our readers who have suggestions to -nake will have a hearing if they will end in, in brief form,- their ideas and ixperience. 'Squire Taylor tried a law suit bo- ween Ball & Bronson and Tom Kelley Viday. The plaintiffs claimed they ad bought some hay and paid part down, that defendent had let it go to waste and they wanted damages. Keley set up a cross petition claiming he had sold the hay and that they had only >aid part down and he wanted the rest )f the money. Geo. E. Clarke present- id Kelley's case and W. B. Quarton ,alked for Ball & Bronson. After hear- ng the evidence 'Squire Taylor hold that Kelley was entitled to his money, and that if the hay spoiled it was because Ball & Bronson did not tend to t. The case will be appealed. The opening bicycle race of the season occurred Thursday evening, Bert Mmonds, F. S. Stough, Dr. Morse, <Yank Dingley, Pearl Pugh and Jos. lays going to Bancroft on the afternoon passenger and coming to town on their wheels. Some of the boys say ,hey were not racing, but the others admit it was a race. Bert Edmunds led ;he procession into town in the aston- shing time of an hour and nine minutes. F, S. Stough camo second and ;he others followed. Frank Dingloy and Pearl Pugh caught the freight ;rain at Burt and came down on that, etting in about with the others. This race is only a feeler, and some good ones are likely to result. After a week's adjournment Judge larr and Reporter Grier came over Monday to finish up some equity cases and closed the term yesterday afternoon. Two cases were tried. One was brought by Herman Struecker of Wes Bend to annul a mortgage given by him to W. C. Danson. After a ful hearing Judge Carr held that a case was not made and allowed the mortgage to stand. Tht> other case was brough by Alex Younie to compel S. T. Meser vey to give a deed to a quarter section The contest was over the contract al leged to exist in the correspondence Geo. E.
