O Minkler is building a new sidewalk In front of the old Hawes store. The full proceedings of the adjourned session of the board are given this week. Mr and Mrs. Frank Allen of Burt were initiated into the Eastern Star chapter last night. Every farmer in the county should read the report of the home insurance company published in this issue. C. B. Hutchins is locating the wall lines for the new opera house, and work will soon begin on tho foundation. Marriage licenses have been issued to John Riebhoff and Flora Jurgenson, Chas. Kressin and Lena Schenchel. We notice that Miss Alice Mann has been granted a state teacher's certificate. It was issued by tho state board last Friday. A fine new house and barn west of Bice's bridge means that John Riebhoff will soon be located and running his own ranch. A good work of trimming up shade trees has been going on the past week. It needs to proceed several weeks yet, to convenience the public. • Neat jobs of painting have been done on the residences of Mrs. McCall and A. D. Bradley. G. J. Stebbinsis the artist, and both places are much improved. Sam. Plumley's_ team started to run last week, and a tile was thrown against the driver's face, cutting a hole in his cheek through to the mucous membrane. Dr. Pride patched him up. Letters are advertised for A. M. Burt, K. 0. Berven, K. K. Berven, Miss Sadie Evens, Frank D. Francis, E. L. Fleury, Miss Christina Flugstad, Fred Great, J, Bailey, Johnathan Kirk, G. Lindgren. Corn has grown asrapldly the last week as it ever has in this county. The good fields are not much behind what they should be. Other crops never looked better, and tame hay will yield a very heavy crop. John Fields was home Monday for a few hours' visit. Ho is now on the road for the Sioux City live stock insurance company and says he is doing a good business. He has quit veterinary work for a while. A very pleasant time is promised at W. F, Hoflus' fine place three milas north of town Friday evening. The V. W.'s of the Baptist church give an ice cream social to which everyone is cordially invited. Jay Hodgman saw a speculation last week and traded his delivery outfit for a note on someone in Winnebago county. It is reported that he was fooled out of his property, but he has hopes that the note is good. An excursion train goes on the Milwaukee Sunday to Okoboji, $1.75 for round trip including ride around the lake on the new steamer, "Manhattan." The train leaves Algona at 8.35 and arrives at a little past 10 o'clock. A young man known as Billy Wise caught cold while digging in tho drain ditches being made in town and died Sunday of lung trouble. Ho was on the streets Friday. His family is destitute and the town is caring for them. The Algona races are advertised for next week. The races are at Etmnets- burg this week, and F. M. Taylor went over yesterday to make final arrangements. There are 06 entries at Ern- metsburg, and a lot of good ones already here. Dr. Busby of Bancroft, who went west on account of lung trouble, was not much bonefitted by the trip, and is now at his old home in Webster City. Dr. Walters, brother of Mrs. Dr. Morse, is attending to his Bancroft office. While Jas, Gallion as marshal was making some arrests at Bancroft, Andy Smith is charged with resisting him and with using a hammer. He was arrested and will have a hearing July 20. The county attorney prosecutes and J. W. Sullivan defends. John G. Smith, Henry Durant, S, S. Sessions, Dr. West, Axel Sundstrom, A. F. Steinburg^ und Don Morrison were Kossuth's contribution to the Spirit Lake shooting tournament last week. Sundstrom of Bancroft won the inadal for the best average, beating a lot of good shots. Two umbrellas belonging to Dick Slade, and which were standing on his porch, walked off in company with a thief one night last week, so he says. If the fellow who took them will bring them back Dick says he will put them where they will neither become strayed or stolen in future. One feature of Secretary BlackJOVd's report of the mutual insurance company's work the past year IB that over seven eighths of stock losses have been ty lightning. The want of any prevailing disease and stock troubles generally hereabouts IB shown by this statement. This is tho stock raising paradise if there Is Wilson Farm Department Pay?" Besides a musical entertainment and "banquet, the editors are invited to spend Saturday at Okoboji, the guests of the Manhattan Beach company. The most exciting ball game of the season was played at Burt Saturday between the home nine and the Cresco boys for a purse of $50 actually up. Victory perched on thebannersof Cresco by a score ofl 5 to 8, and the boys came home in high spirits. A return game will be played on the Cresco grounds for a like sum next Saturday. A gay fishing party consisting of Guy Taylor, Mart Weaver, Chns. Smith. Frank Chandler, Chester Call and Geo. Bailey started for Shaver's lake last week with a tent and boat. They will spend what time they want to, and leave their outfit for a crowd of young ladies who are to follow them. We understand some Bancroft people will join this second excursion. The township authorities the past week have put the road in front of the Wadsworth farm in passable condition. Monday a bee of farmers turned in and graded the road from the Hobart creamery south, and it la reported that J. W. Wndsworth grabbed a scraper and handled it like an old hand. There were 22 teams at work, an example worthy of imitation all over the county. When the new school house • was built it was thought that there would bo room enough for 20 years, but already the board are figuring on how to accommodate the students this fall. The depot building and every room in the high school are crowded, and next year at the latest a now building will be needed. If the attendance is too largo to be packed in this fall, a room will be rented somewhere for the term. The following item from the Mason City Republican would be news if true: "In the suit against the Milwaukee company in which John Van Winkle of Algona sued the company for $30,000 for the death of his son, who was injured in the yards at this place. The jury rendered a verdict for $2,400 in favor of plaintiff at Ottumwa last week." Geo. E. Clarice says the facts are as stated except that the plaintiff is not an Algo- nian. W. E. Morrison and son Don were down from Bancroft last week shaking hands with Algona acquaintances. Although quite thin owing to recent sickness, our old-time Bancroftlte was in good spirits and no note of cheerfulness was lacking in his hearty greeting. He talks some of coming to Bancroft again to make his home, as he says there is more life there in a minute than down in Illinois in a month. Don is reading law, and goes home before his father does to continue his studies. The old Wesley road is one of the best known in Kossuth. And yet within u mile of the depot is a place that is as bad as any in the county. We notice that the adjoining land is being fenced, which will absolutely shut travel off from this highway. There is not an acre of land along it that has' not paid road tax enough to have made a gravel road twice over, and the present state of affairs is a good illustration of the fool policy wo are pursuing with roads. Some boys insisted on shooting giant crackers in front of the houses of Bancroft's lending citizens the evening of the Fourth, which was considered a sufficient breach of the public quiet and good order to warrant their arrest. Considering it was the Fourth, however, and that they were simply accepting old John Adams'sidvice to celebrate our independence " by firing guns and ringing bells" they were dismissed. It is hard to convict a man for making a noise on the Fourth. Speaking of early times last week Ambrose A. Call remarked that it was on July 9, just 38 years ago that he blazed the first tree in Kossuth county, and posted his claim to the timber he now owns south and west of the river. Judge Call took the grove north of town, and decided then on the location of Algona. Thirty-eight years does not seem like a long time, but when one thinks of what has happened since that tree was blazed, it seems remote enough, Old time friends of Prof. O. H. Baker and his daughter, Jodie, will be interested in this item from Simpson college: In recognition of merit and superior work the salary of Joanna Baker, A. M., of the chair of Greek language and literature, was materially increased. As a Greek scholar and teacher of that grandest of all tongues, Miss Baker probably has few equals, and the board of trustees show their appreciation of her worth by giving her the full salary affixed to this chair, Our readers will remember last fall of a disreputable family in the westpart of town being notified to leave. The girl, Daisy, has been back at Mrs. Tromlee's south of town and rumors are afloat of other scandals. Saturday she was arrested on the charge of vagrancy and Deputy Mclnroe brought her up to jail, but on promise that she would leave the county for good she was released. When Jim went to arrest her she swore she would shoot, ana he took a well-loaded revolver away from her. She is only a girl some 17 years old but evidently is well hardened. The DCS Moines News in reporting Bert Edmonds in the Marshaltown races says: "The event of the day, however, was the five-mile handicap race, for the following prizes; C Victor bicycle, opera glasses and silver cup. The following well-known wheelmen started in this race, with handicaps as follows: West, scratch Edmonds, 440 yards; Payne, o20;Cheas bro, 600; McElwain, 630; Boardman 600- Dutton, 600. Edmonds showed his wonderful endurance by riding his as half mile in a little under 1.30 and mine in first with Cheasbro and West follow ing, time 15:31.

Gentlemen: I submit to you this re- ort of tho affairs of tho Kossuth Coun- y Mutual for the year ending on June 4, 1892. The year just past has been a reason- bly prosperous one, although the losses ave been more than usual. During he year we have paid the following osses: Thos. Hanna, $16; N. A. Pine, 15: E. Simpkins, §190; B, A. Anderon. 922,50; J. N. Wheeler, $5; C. O. ish, $150; Geo. Simpkins, $21; P. B. Jatlin, $5, making a total of $428.50. 'o pay these claims it was necessary to evy two assessments amounting to 1J mills on the dollar. This is about an verage with other mutual companies n the state—some are less and some much more. During the year there have been many changes in the ownership of prop- rty throughout the county, and this ias necessitated many changes with us. A good deal of insurance has b_een can- elled for this reason, and in many ases for the want of some one to prop- rly present the subject the new owners lave not insured with us. Our plan of allowing changes to be constantly made without extra cost is largely taken advantage of, and while it makes a large imount of work and no revenue to the ompany, yet it seems to give satisfap- ion to the members. Many of the ompanies charge a small fee for every hange made, but I believe that our ilan is the better one and should be ontlnued. With all of these changes ve have made a steady upward growth, lave passed the half-million dollar nark, and are today carrying risks vmounting to §518,549. On the 18th day bf last April we com- ileted the first five years of our history, ,nd in view of the fact that many of the egular insurance companies claim that he business does not pay at their present rates, and that in some states they mve already raised their rates and are onsidering it in others, it seems to me i fitting time for us to take a review, make a few comparisons of the two ilans, and see if we are financially the gainers or not. The regular insurance ompanies usually write insurance on arm property for a five-year term, so it s easy for us to compare cost for that jeriod of time. Their usual charge for nsuring farm property against fire and ightning for a five-year term is H per ,ent., or in other words, $15 premium or each $1,000 insured. This you pay n cash at the time your insurance commences, or else give your note with in- erest, so that the company has the use jf your money for five years. Simple nterest on this at eight per cent, is $G, o that if you could have made your money earn you eight per cent, you have in reality paid $21 on $1,000 inured. With us the same $1,000 for he same length of time and insured against the same things has cost you >1 membership, $1 percentage, and six issessments, amounting to $5.25, or a ,otal of $7.25. Interest on these varl ius amounts at eight per cent, from the ,ime they were paid to the end of the jovia is $1.50, making a total cost with us of $8.75, a difference in our favor of 512.25 on each $1,000 insurance, show- ng that we have saved or in other vords made that much money. Let me now call your attention to the jubject of live stock insurance. All vill readily admit that stock should be so insured that it will average to pay ts own losses. The man that insures juildings and no live stock does not ike to pay live stock losses unless the _ive stock contributes an equal share iowards the payment of other losses Two years a TO at the meeting of the state association, when this subject came up I found that there were but : ew companies who required as large a jroportion of the value of live stock to je insured as we do. Last year I found ihat many of them had changed then rules and were up to Oi* beyond our standard. Many of tho Companies pay 'ull value on live stock killed by lightning up to certain limits, and their limil :s usually higher than purs—from $125 ;o $150 on horses, for instance. Many insure valuable stock where the animal is speci'fkfally described formuch largei ataoutats. 1 am satisfied, however, that oUi- plan is preferable, unless we were to require a much larger proportion o the value of live stock to be insured The general idea all over the state was that the risk on live stock was very small, but the last three years has ef fectually dispelled that opinion; and while the statistics on that subject ai gathered by the state association an fragmentary and unsatisfactory, the; seem to prove that the live stock in surance has not paid its own way. In our own case in the last five years ther have been 13 losses on live stock amounting to $49.75, out Of a total los of $1,828.72. The total amount of in surance on live stock is $100,000, out a total of $218,549. Tims you see tha while live stock has contributed bu one-fifth of the revenue, nearly two thirds of the loss has been on live stock If we have met with a loss on some the buildings we have insured, the re suit might have been different, i giv oit the facts in the case as they are, owever, for your information. Of the ve stock loss over seven-eights has een caused by lightning. Another subject worthy of your con- deration is the one of expense. Our ules are perfectly fair and just to all, ut it seems to me not economical, he most of the companies have rules .milar to ours, but their experience has lown them the need of changes. The nost important item is assessments. n our company now each assessment will cost not less than $25, and of course amount will increase with the rowth of the company, and this does ot take into account the cost to the ndividual member who has to pay five 3nts for draft or money order, or the .me of the secretary in writing and ailing receipts for each trifling mount. Most of the companies now make but one assessment a year, bor- owing money if need be to pay losses, ome have a regular annual assessment nd if they are fortunate carry over a urplus, and if not levy an extra assessment at the end of the fiscal year to upply the deficiency. I urge upon you careful consideration of this subject, s you will all agree with me that the ercentage of expense is too large. During the last year I made use of ostal cards for assessment notices, for 10 purpose of lessening the expense, but he plan meets with considerable ob- ection from many patrons who say that icy are not so likely to get them as icy would be in a sealed envelope, as rinted postal cards are so largely used or advertising purposes that they are egarded as of but little value and rented accordingly. Another objec- .on that I have is that at the end of 30 ays, if an assessment is not paid, the 10 secretary does not know whether iey ever received the notice or not. E they did the policy should be void; '. not it would be a manifest injustice o cancel policy as a penalty, even if we ould legally do so. The use of regular nvelopes with printed return card •ould largely obviate this, but would dd to the expense. How shall we adjust losses? Our ule answers that, but let us suppose a ase: Say a cow is killed up in Town- hip 100, Range 80. After the proper otice is given one of the proper officers joes up there, expecting to fill out the djusting board from directors living n the neighborhood, and finds them way from home. How can he make a egal adjustment of tho loss? If they T go from here the expense of adjust- ng would probably be greater than the oss. To remedy this many of the com- lanies are adopting the plan of having ne man do all the adjusting, submit- ing his report to the executive committee for their action before loss is aid. Others have adjusters pay small osses on tho spot as soon as he is satis- ed. Others select three or four men n difierent parts of the county, and in ase of loss send the man who is the earest. The plan of having each di- ector adjust losses in his own district ias been tried, but has generally been bandoned. In case of a heavy loss I hink our plan is all right, but in a mall one the one-man plan might be ust as satisfactory and much cheaper. I mention these things only in the in- erest of the company, so that you may ;ake such measures as you think best o reduce expense where it can be done without impairing the efficiency of the ompany. During* the year I had a oinplete set of books manufactured for he company, and have transcribed all ecords into them, so that we have hem in such shape as will render them lermanent.

DES MOINES, July 12.—The past week has been generally favorable, the days being clear and warm with more than an average amount of sunshine. The nights, however, were quite cool, bringing the daily average temperature down about four degrees below the normal for this period, which is usually the hottest portion of the year. To give corn the vigorous growth that is now needed to perfect tho crop, the daily mean temperature of this month should bo not less than 74 degrees, and August should give an average of 72 degrees. The crop has made fair progress during the week, where it has been possible to give it np.i'essnry cultivation; and its average height is about where it should be in ordinary seasons tho 1st to tho 4th of July. Very satisfactory progress has been made in securing tho unusually heavy hay crop, and tho harvest of winter grain is generally completed in the southern and central districts. Tho rainfall of tho week was generally very light, but ample for tho necessities of tho growing crops. Tho heaviest amount reported was at tho central station on Sunday, where the measurement was 1.00 inclios. A New Kind of Insurance.

Emmetsburg Reporter: Jim Taylor, chairman of the democratic district committee, has sent out a circular to the different counties, appealing to democrats to make up. It is understood that " Jim" is a candidate for the democratic nomination for secretary of state. Lu Verne News: As bet ween a Kossuth county democrat and any other democrat for congress we are for a Kossuth county man every time, and when it comes to a choice from the ranks of Kossuth democracy the portly figure of J. W. Hinchon stands to the fore front like the figurehead on the ship of state. The democrats of this congressional district do not have within their ranks a man of sounder judgment, more progressive ideas, liberal views or who is more thoroughly American than J. W. Hinchon. Will they name him for the place? Webster City Herald: The Des Moines Capital says that "Judge Cook of Eagle Grove is oeing groomed to run against Dolliver." Judge Cook is a Webster City man, is not a candidate for congress, and we believe would not consider it for a minute. With these two corrections, the Capital is all right. At Geo. K. Marble's, Hurt.
