Marriage licenses are issued to E. H, Dick and Mary A. Falb, Aug. Dau and Minnie Schultz, U. S. Fox and Lizzie Piplow. Mrs L. J. Rice goes to Colorado this week,'and will try the air of Denver awhile for its strengthening eiTect on her lungs. Marshal Dailey has made three private connections with the water mains, and has calls for them as fast as ho can do the work. Wm. Bossingham is adding to the building record with a new house on the old Kelley lots near Maple park. He will have a peasant home. Miss Emma Zahlton, who went west on account of threatened consumption, will make Mexico her final stopping place. Her health is very poor. A running race between horses owned by J. H. Graver's boy and Fred. Corey drew a good crowd Saturday.. The Grover horse won in two heats. It is reported that Prof. Gilchrist has closed his connection with the Sioux City college. We have not heard what he will do in the future. Prof. Geo. E. Reed, who taught Algona and afterward lost his hand up in an Idaho mill, has been in the Spencer public schools the past term. The new church in Plum Creek is to be dedicated next Sunday, and all should attend the exercises. It is on the river road just north of A. L. Seeley's. John Paul and his son R. H. were in Alfirona buying horses last week. They got four for their yards in La Crosse, buying only the heaviest they can find. G. H. Peters was in town yesterday looking much better since his mountain trip. He likes the Montana climate, but don't like the occupations op' en there. Judge Carr, Judge Cook, and Reporter Grier came in yesterday morning, Judge Cook is laid up pretty badly with rheumatism, but is able to be about. Bancroft sent down goodly delegations yesterday to see the races, b. Mayne, Geo. Holloway, Frank Grose, and a dozen others drove down early in the morning. The Hamilton lumber company are shipping a carload a day of hard wood . *.i o _ . . i__ „„ 4-ltsi *tnnrl and found him happy this hot weather In spite of his 225 pounds. Mrs. Funk and the children are spending the summer in Washington. The hail storm last week did lots of damage to crops thereabouts, and with poetic justice wiped out the farm of the agent of a storm and hail insurance company, who had no insurance on his own crops. Those who happened to look north Saturday evening saw a very hrilliant display of the Aurora Borealis. The unusual beauty of it has attracted attention all over the country. It is considered by scientific men the most brilliant of any in late years. Ike Finnel and Bro. Platt represented _the editors at Spencer and at Oko boji. It is said that in point of gracn- ful poise and making a splash in the water they beat the whole fraternity at the toboggan slide. Strange us it may seem, the editors took to a free bath like ducks. We have just received a very fine specimen of the fossil forest petrifactions of Arizona, Senator Pnrrott visited the forest on his return from California, and wrote a very interesting report of the trip. The specimen we have is very curious and may be seen at the office. The John Paul Lumber company is doing a little building on its own account as well as supplying the lumber for Algona's other improvements. It is putting in a new shod 100 feet long, two stories high, which will have a shingled roof, bo painted, and otherwise add to the appearance of things. Earl Tennant was at Arnold's Park for some time us clerk in the hotel, but resigned his place Friday and is at home. Earl likes hotel work, but when it comes to sitting up till 2 and 3 o'clock in the morning and getting up at 0 he soon gets enough of it. The clerk who took his place stayed five days. The UPPER DKS MOINES ^office was threatened with a conflagration Saturday, the butcher shop north of it being well afire. But prompt measures stopped the flames, and no great dam- ago was done. This office is prepared for irate subscribers, but when it comes to being extinguished by fire we want none of it. Bert. Barr has been honored by being appointed sergeant major of the 3rd battallion, 4th regiment. It is expected that the Iowa national guard will go to Chicago this fall for the opening of the world's fair, instead -of holding the usual encampment. He will have important duties in case the Iowa companies attend. Robert Long, who was tending the masons on the A. D. Clarke building Monday, was overcome by the heat about 4 o'clock, and fell in a sort of sunstroke fit. Ho was picked up and taken home and Dr. Morse called. He was not dangerously heated and will soon be out, but came as near a sunstroke as has ever happened in Algona. Monday was a very hot and sultry day, the most so of the season. lumberfand J. A. keeps on the road most of the time. They have a new advertisement this week. The first story of the Clarke building is about up, and the foundation is nearly in for the opera house, and also for the state bank'. The Hoxie-Ferguson block is behind at present. The girl Daisy Crane, whose arrest last week and subsequent dismissal on condition that she leave town, did not leave as agreed and is again in jail, where she will await the grand jury. Sexton still booms. A young man G. B. Mclntosh, has joined hands with Col. Spencer and business will go this fall. Mr. M. comes from New York and is a desirable addition to Kossutn. E. G.

The Fourth regiment, to which Company F belongs, will not go to Chicago this fall, but will camp at Sioux City or Fort Dodge, It goes to Chicago next year. The First and Second go this fall. Letters are advertised for Tom J. Peterson, F, A. Reed, Anders Uair Nielson, Miss Annie Nelson, M. ^Kinney, Miss Lena Goler, Ole Berwm, W. E. Scott, Mrs. Samuel Stanton, Mrs. Ollie Fish. Judge Carr came over yesterday to Mrs. Jake Winkel, who has been sick for ton weeks past, died last Friday. The remains were taken to Wisconsin, accompanied by her husband and sister-in-law, Mrs. Scofield, and wore buried Saturday. She leaves two little children, one a year and ten months and the other ten months of age. Her loss is a great misfortune to her husband, and ho has the sympathy of all in his bereavement. J. W. Wadsworth went to Des Moines lust week Thursday with his "Algona Boy," and put him on the track there in charge of Wm. Pettibone, who will try his paces and make a trotter of him. Experts in horses think " Algona Boy" has the possibilities of fast time, in which event Algona will be duly advertised. He is certainly a fine looking horse, and has the honor of being the first standard colt born in Kossuth county. The horses which were stranded at Algona got up some races for gate receipts yesterday. A fair crowd turned out, and some of the races were pretty good. "The Moor" won a mile and repeat running race in good time, and Colvin's colt showed good speed in a half-mile race. Cid Blossom's "Rubel" and Fred. Corey's trotter both did well in the trotting race. Altogether it was a pretty good programme, Arrangements are being made for two big political addresses at the coun- tv fair this fall. Jas. Taylor as district committeeman for the democrats will arrange for democratic representation, and republicans hope with the assistance of Chairman Blythe to put in one of their best orators. If the matter is arranged the, people will undoubtedly PEESONALMOVEMENTS. C. M. Doxsee's mother and sister are over from Rolfe for a short visit. H. E. Rist is out in South Dakota looking after some land speculations. Miss Edith Clarke is in Des Moines attending a reunion of Evanston students there. Gardner Cowles' niece, Miss McCollum, is up from Ft. Dodge making an extended visit. B. F. Wright, Iowa's noted temperance apostle known as Windy Wright, was in Algona a few hours Monday. Dr. Parkes, who has been visiting at A. D. Clarke's a few weeks, returned to Chicago by way of Des Moines Monday. Henry Durant, S. S. Sessions, W. E. Ward, Axel Sundstrom, and A. F. Steinberg went to Britt Monday for the shoot. Mrs. F. E. Roper of Fort Dodge, and Mrs. D. M. Schanck and daughter of Fort Atkinson are visiting their neice, Mrs. Fred. Fuller. Miss Edna Lantry is down from Minneapolis visiting her Algona cousins and many friends. She will stay during the summer. Miss Edith Call is home from a six weeks' visit with Mrs. Dr. Shore in Des Moines. Mrs. A. A. Call returned some ten days ago. Charley Budd came up from Des Moines Monday, and with John G. Smith went to Britt in the evening for a two days' shoot there. Miss Mamie Thomas of Humboldt and Miss Laville Haroun of Mason City are in town visiting the families of E. G. Bowyer and E. Tellier. Mr. and Mrs. D. A. Haggard and two daughters will go soon for a visit with her parents in the south part of tho state, and later with relatives at Dubu- quo and Redwing, Minn. O. E. Palmer, Mrs. Fred. Palmer, and Miss Palmer went to Spencer Friday and with Charlie went up for a day at the lakes. Charlie is now working at Spencer and will remain. Mr. and Mrs. Geo. E. Clarke and family started this morning for Spirit Lake where they will spend a few days at Arnold's lod^e. Col. Clarke and his family are on East Okoboji not far distant. S. S. Sessions is home from Des Moines. Ho says the storm last week blew the ampitheatre at the state fail- grounds down and injured other buildings. The ampitheatro is completely ruined. A camping party consisting of Mrs. Dr. Sheetz and Harry, Mrs. L. M. Hoi- ton and two boys, Mable and Ruby Smith, Lizzie and Nellie Wallace are at Chain lakes for a week enjoying outdoor air. Peter Purvis came home last Wednesday from his Wisconsin visit. He was in Chicago twice, and he saw through the Boies' boom too easily to waste any where he will speak on the 20th at an inter-state rally of his party. He had a royal welcome among his old friends in Davis county, and an audience that packed the Bloomfield court house. After expressing his gratification at meeting his old friends and neighbors, Gen. Weaver remarked that on the first day of next May it would be fifty years since he moved into Davis county, nnd if he lived until that time he would lock up the White house i and come back home and hold a picnic on "Bill" Dodd's farm, where his father first settled. This sally called forth an old-fashioned Davis county hurrah. Gen. Weaver has received a letter from Geo. S. Nixon, chairman of the executive committee of the silver party of Nevada, stating that, though his first choice at Omaha was Gresham, he was now satisfied that tho strongest possible nominations had been made. He assures Gen. Weaver that, although there will be no distinctively people's party ticket in tho field in Nevada, the three electoral votes of that state will be cast for Weaver. The general will visit the silver states immediately upon his return from Indiana. TOR GOOD ROADS. Delegates from Kossuth to n Convention nt DCS Mollies— Coining Down to Business. Mayor Sheetz yesterday, in response to the request from the commercial exchange of Des Moines, appointed Philip Dorweiler, C. B. Hutchins, C. L. Lund, and Dr. G. H. Peters as delegates to a road convention to bo held in Des Moines, Aug. 16. Tho request is signed by E. H. Tlmyor, Wra. Larrabee, John H. Gear. John R. Shaffer, and Eugene Sccor, besides the committee of the exchange, and is a statement of the need of such a meeting. The committee add as a postscript the following note of interest to nil who can arrange to attend: "We understand that from the 13th of August round trip tickets over all roads to Des Moines may be had for half price, good till the 22nd. This includes the week of Des Moines races." Every delegate named should plan to attend this meeting and to assist in bringing some order out of tho present chaos of road laws. With roads as they have, been this spring in Kossuth, and the knowledge on tho part of every farmer that his land has paid road tax enough, to say nothing of poll taxes, to have good roads, everybody should take an interest in this matter. G. H. who No take more finislTup some court business. Ueo. E. Clarke had a probate matter, and W. B. Quarton and E. V. Swetting had an injunction case over the right to some hay land to settle. Rev.

We had the pleasur visit witb Senator" hear two of the ablest men the stump in this campaign, interesting feature could be provided for the fair, and every effort will be made to carry out the plan. Where were the boasted fast horses of Kossuth county last weeki^ Although the programme of races included a chance for all our local steppers, only three entries were made by home men and they were for the half-mile runmnff race by Will. Carlon, Fred. Co e" and Dolvin. If the horsemen expect to arouse much interest here in moos, they will have ft wake up and show more animation than that. The county don't get very desirable advertising out of publishing races and .then being the only one in the circuit to have a fizzle. . The failure of our racing association to make a success of the meeting ad- to nmito n. , ^ yells on that. Ho had a pleasant time and saw many of his old time friends. Mrs. Emma Dorland arrived from Llano, Texas, last Thursday with her three children, and will spend the summer at the old home. Robert Chris- chilles will come up in a week, and W. S. Dorland is expected in three weeks. All will be warmly welcomed by their old friends. JULY PROP REPORT. The Iowa Weather Service Finds the Prospects Better all Along tho Lino than in. Juno. Corn, according to Weather Director Sage, is going to be two-thirds of a crop this year in Iowa. The average of the reports sent in shows a present acreage of 85 per cent, compared with 1891; in other words, the corn acreage this year is 15 per cent, less than the area planted in 1891. That is certainly a liberal estimate, taking into account the immense area of flooded lands, and the prevalent wet weather in the planting season. The census report shows that in the great corn year of 1889 Iowa planted 7,585,522 acres. It is probable that there was no material change in the area planted in the years 1890 and 1891, Assuming the census figures to be correct and that there was no change in the two following years, we have this year 6,446,694 acres in corn. The July condition of this crop is 72t per cent. So the present outlook gives promise of about two- thirds of a full average yield. Spring wheat holds its own with last year. Oats have an acreage of 12 per cent, less than last year, covering 3,301,885 acres. Flax is 11 per cent, less than last year. Timothy is estimated at 100 and clover at 103 per cent. This has been a great year for grass, and the hay harvest reports show a heavy yield. The present area is something oves Si millions of acres in meadows. The reports show an acreage of 120 per cent, compared with last year, the large increase being due to the shortage of corn. Dr. Peters in Montana. The Bancroft Register says Peters is back from the west and says he had a good time. He went direct from Minneapolis to Helena, Mont., where he bought a pony and started overland to see the sights and enjoy the healthful exercise. He rode down to the national park, spent three or four days and then journeyed back to the Northern Pacific railway, where he sold his pony and took the train for home. In speaking of that country he says the old ranchers who are well to do live in the same old houses of log sides and sod roof that they built when they went there, although some of the back number huts have organs, pianos, fine furniture, and are tastily decorated inside. There was great activity in all the cities and towns where he was, and although there were lots of tramps yet there was plenty of work for all who would work. One great difference between the towns there and here is the saloons and gambling houses, which, he affirms, are more numerous than the combined business places in other lines, and in this fact he saw the reason why the workmen do not save up any money. He heard the remark often that "if I can save up enough money I'll go back to the states this fall." sive land owner. His son had the benefit of a fair education. George served as an apprentice to his father until they settled in New York. It seems that E revious to going to New York the imily lived a number of years in R. I. From this place they moved toBatavia, N. Y. He went to Ohio when the country was still wild. He first settled in Worthington. Ho soon moved to Columbus, where he startr 'i in the notion business. At that ti.iie peddling wns a great industry, and he worked at this until he was disabled in an accident. Ho claimed that ho was tho first peddler and auctioneer in Ohio. It seems that he soon became interested in the land question and it is said that on a handsomely painted peddling wagon, which ho drove, was printed: "Land Bill Allen" and "A Home for All." The old man could not tell in which year the land movement was first agitated, and in fact, remembered little about it other than that it provided for the donation of 160 acres of land to all settlers coming to this state. Ho claimed to have spent $60,000 in trying to get tho bill through. It seems that all his energies and income were spent in this direction and soon he was not only a physical but a financial wreck. Finally' his possessions were- reduced to a little cabin in Plain township on which he lived. This was taken away from him and sold at sheriff's sale. Since that time ho wandered about the country, dependent upon tho generosity of a few friends. Country Itoads. Bill Nye: Tho country system, as I recall it, was in my boyhood days about as poor nnd insufficient ns they could be. Each township was divided up into road districts, and each road district was presided over by an overseer of highways whose duty it was to collect so many days' work, or so many dollars from each tax-payer in tho district. Of course no tax-payer would pay a dollar when ho could come and make mud pics and gossip on the road > all day with tho neighbors and snvo his dollar, too. The result seemed to bo that tho work was misdirected and generally was an injury to tho roads. With all due respect to tho farmer, I will say right here that he does not know how to make roads. An all-wisoProvidence never intended that ho should know. The professional road builder, with tho money used by ignorant hay-scads and self-made road architects, would, in a few years make roads in tho United States over which two or throe times the present sized loads could be easily drawn, and the dumb beasts of tho republic would rise up and call us blessed for doing it.

He was swimming with some younger boys who were unable to assist him. He was a son of Mrs. Joe McDonald, and a brother of the girl who was killed by having the school bell fall on her a year ago. He was 16 years old, had a good business education, and left a record in the office of neat penmanship, and accurate work. He was liked by all, and his death is a serious blow. Mrs. McDonald has several boys left, but this loss following that of her husband and only daughter, will be a terrible affliction. Ed.

"Weaver's Canvass. Des Moines News: General Weaver has returned from Bloomfield and will leave tonight for Vinoennes, Ind., Invested In Armstrong. Bancroft contributed liberally to the boom last Wednesday at the new city of Armstrong. The Register says: Quite a number went out from this place Tuesday to attend the sale of lots at Armstrong. Among the number was R. N. Bruer and wife, O. T. Brigham and wife, J. G, Graham and wife, Will Kinne, Chris. Boettsher, G. R. Woodworth, A. A. Reynolds, P. C. BreiholU, Wm. Musson, C. E. McLaughlin, W. S. Stahl, B. F. Grose, J. A. Johnson, and James Gallion. A. A. Reynolds, Wm. Musson J. G. Graham, J. A, Johnson, Mr. Flemming of Sioux Falls, A. B. Beisell of Goldfield, D, A. Haggard of Algona, invested in lots. Some parties are going put today to buy some of the remaining lots. We hope they won't get fooled out of their money like the good people have who invested in Thompson property over in Winnebago county. The Struggle of Life. Col. R. G. Ingersoll: Born of love and hope, of ecstacy and pain, of agony and fear, of tears and joy—dowered with the wealth of two united hearts- held in happy arms with lips upon life's drifted font, blue veined and fair, where perfect peace finds perfect form—rocked by willing feet and wooed by shadowy shores of sleep by siren mother singing soft and low—looking with wonder's wide and startled eyes at common things of life and day—taught by want and wish and contact with the things that touch the dimpled lash of babes— lured by light and flame and charmed by color's wondrous robes—learning the use of hands and feet and by love of mimicry gulled to utter speech—re- leasing'poisoned thoughts from crabbed and curious marks on soiled and tattered leaves—puzzling the brain with crooked numbers and their changing, tangled worth—and so through years of alternating day and night, until the captive grows familiar with tho chains and walls and limitations of life. And time runs on in sun and shade, until one of all the world is wooed and won, and all the lore of love is taught and learned again. Again tho home is built with the fair chamber wherein faint dreams like cool and shadowy vales divide the billowed hours of love. Again the miracle of birth, the pain and joy, the kiss of welcome and tho cradle song drowning the prattle of tho babe. And then the sense of obligation and of wrong—pity for those who toil and weep, tears for tho imprisoned and despised, Jlove for the generous dead, and in the heart the rapture of a high resolve. And then ambition, with its lust of pelf and place and power, longing to put upon its breast distinction's worthless badge. Then kaener thoughts of men and eyes that soe behind the smiling mask of craft—flattered no more by the obsequious cringe of gain and greed —knowing tho uselessness of hoarded gold—of honor bought of those who would charge the usury of self respect —of power that only bends the coward's knees and forces from the lips of fear the lies of praise. Knowing at last the unstudied gesture of esteem, the reverend eyes made rich with honest thought, and holding high above all other things—high as hope's great throbbing star above the darkness of the dead—the love of wife, child and friend. The locks of gray, and growing love of other days and half remembered things, the holding withered hands of those who first held his, while over dim and loving eyes death softly presses down the lids to rest.

In the most obstinate cases of summer complaint and diarrhoea among my children, it acted as a, charm, making it never necessary to call in a physician.

Allen, better known as "Land Bill Allen," the author of the homestead act, died at tho county infirmary some months ago, aged 83. A portion of his days was spent in Connecticut, but just before coming to Ohio he lived in New York state. He was born iq Windom county, Conn., in May, 1809, His father was a taylor and did Harvest Excursion Tickets.

Mr. W. M. Terry, who has been in the drug business at Elkton, Ky., for the past 13 years, says: "Chamberlain's Cough Remedy gives better satisfaction than any other cough medicine I have sold."
