Jones, the young man who was sun struck last week, was kicked by a horse in Smith's livery Monday, and a bad cut in the thigh resulted. He is in hard luck this hot weather.

It is said that Sioux City will organize a second company to fill the vacancy, TheDunlap Bros/have over 1,100 acres of flax this year nenrLedytird and the present prospect is that the yield will DO the best they have ever had.

It has been attended by 25 teachers and has been very successful But for the delayed terms of school on account of wet weather in the spring the attendance would have been much larger. The new town of Reynolds has been added to Kossuth. It will be the metropolis of Harrison township and stand on section 19. The new towns east of ihe Northwestern track will be located ihis week, Mr. Dows coming up for that purpose. Ramsay has the best crops this year she has ever had, if B. F. Smith is cor- M ect, He takes a very roseate view of ,he prospects. He has sold already 40 full-blood Chester White's, which shows that things are stirring up in ihat section. Instead of the supper announced on unday at the M. E. church, a lawn social will be held at the residence of Gardner Cowles, on Thursday evening, July 28. Ice cream and cake will be served from 7 until 10 p. m. Every- )ody cordially invited.

Bircher's pacer ire on'the Mason City track being put 'hrpugh their paces by Thomas, who rained hero last year. They are all showing good speed. The Patterson mare is reported to be going very "ast. The marriage records disclose the act that Whittempre's popular mer- hant, Alex. Dorweiler, is to join the Benedicts, Miss Anna E. Hayes being the young lady of his choice. Both are veil known and poppular, and thei" union will bring any number of con- ratulations. Corn is growing like California pump- fins. Last Thursday A. L. Belton gave us a six-foot stalkj and Monday M. O'Rourke brought in one over eight *eet high, all tasseled out and a good ear well silked on it.

One of the finest barns that has been reeled in the county is on Dougal Wallace's farm east of C. L. Lund's. t is 54x60 feet and has just been coin- deted. Mr. Wallace now has plenty f hay room, and uses slings instead of orks to put it in. With this plan him- elf and boy can fill the barn if help gets scarce. Ben. Smith was down last week with jver $50 worth of advertisements for he coming fair premium list. Ban- ,roft has done magnificently by the ,ounty fair, and the north end in gener- il is entitled to great credit for the in- erest it has taken in making a success f our annual exhibits. Our own people will do well to emulate the entor- irise of the residents of the north. S. S. Sessions will go to Des Moines next Wednesday to stay until the state air closes in September. J. W. Wads- vorth will not go till the middle of the nonth. Two policeman have thus far >een appointed from Kossuth, Wm. loodrichand Henry Merrifield, and thers will doubtless be selected. The air this year will be better than ever. Next Tuesday evening Glazier's Caro- inans will give a jubilee concert at the Methodist church under the auspices of he Epworth league. There are seven ingers in the company and they come vita the highest here is no more hese darky melod commendations. There is no more popular music than hese darky melodies, and the popular prices of 35 cents for adults and 25 •ents for children should, insure ft full louse.

Reed, Prof. J S Shoup of Sioux City, Prof. Anna 3 McGovern of Cedar Falls, Prof, 3erthaL.Patt of Decorah, and Prof. 31 "on Supt. Reed says he expects a ullattendZeand a very interesting The instructors are all well d some hard and thorough work will be done. chairman of the demo- held at Huinboldt. This Is less than four weeks away and if Kossuth is to name the candidate ft move ought to be taade. We notice in one dispatch the following: " Candidates for the nomination are keeping very shady and it is probable that the democrats will have to go far into the back woods to get a man to accept a nomination which means certain defeat at the polls.' We fear that this is intended as a slur on Bro. Hinchon, and emanated from wily Wm. Thompson's friends. There are no "back.woods" candidates up here. Our readers who remember the reports of the arrest and search of a couple of female pickpockets at the state fair by Marsh Stephens while he was chief marshal, will be interested in knowing that a suit is still hanging fire growing out of it. At first an attempt was made to hold Mr. Stephens on a criminal charge, but that failed, and then an attempt to hold the fair asso elation for damages failed. But in a suit against one of the fair officials, who made no defense, a judgment for damages was obtained, and now Marsh and two others will be called on to defend in October. There is nothing in the cases, and H. S. Wilcox will see that a defense is made at the proper time. PEBSONAL MOVEMENTS. Rev. Davidson left for Chicago last Friday, Mrs. Wm. Cordingley, Essie, and the Blossom boys are camping at Okoboji. Miss Gjems, a friend of Misses Josio and Louise McCoy, is making them a visit. C. L.

After that time in the sand hills at this season, no one will ever hear him complain of hot weather up here again. E. B. Kline, who has been manager of the Balcom store here for some months, closed his connection with the business last Saturday. He goes to the lakes for a few days of pleasure before again entering into active business. JOHN PATTERSON has fine Brown Leghornroosters for sale.

The visitor to the normal school building in a few days will scarcely recognize the place, so noticeable are the changes and improvements that have >een made. The whole interior has >eon painted and papered, new black- >oards and seats have been added, and a fine office and library have been fitted up, But the greatest addition is in the business department, where business desks have been put in, bank counters with bronze railings, and all the ap- jurtenances of a regulation business )fflce of a wholesale house. The bust- less department occupies the west room of the second story, and it is safe to say s as finely equipped as in any school n the state. The improvements which are now about completed give the normal school handsome and commodious quarters, and the scholars who at;end the coming term will find themselves surrounded by every convenience. Prof. Chaffee is well pleased with the situation, and has every assurance of a very full attendance, The Juvenile Temple. Members of the Algona Juvenile tein- )le are requested to meet at the residence of L. H.

DONE BY A VICIOUS HORSE John Ford, an Old Citizen of Wesley, Kicked to Death by a Broncho Last Saturday* He Lingered, However, Until Monday • Morning, Conscious to the Last— Other County News. WESLEY, J uly 26.—This week we are called on again to note the death of another of Wesley's old settlers, J. H. Ford. He went to the barn last Friday evening to look after his horses, when one of them kicked him as he went into the door. He was carried Into the house and the doctor called and every thing was done that could be to make him comfortable, but inflamationsetin, which baffled all skill, and death put an end to his sufferings Monday morning at 5 o'clock. He was perfectly conscious up to within a few hours of his death. He leaves a wife and six children to mourn his loss. The funeral services took place today at 2 p. m., conducted by Rev. A. L. Tryon, after which the remains were interred in the Wesley cemetery. James Harry Ford was born in Virginia, March 18, 1822. At the age of four years his parents moved to Ohio, at the age of 25 he came west and settled in Davis county, 111. May 4, 1801 he married Miss Maria Ward, and in 1866 he moved with his family to Mahaska county, Iowa, remaining there three years. In 1869 he came to Kossuth county, and took up a homestead in section 22, Wesley township. In 1886 ho left the farm and moved to Wesley, where he died July 25, 1892, at the age of 70 years, four months, and nine days. J. F. Mayers of Hampton is visiting his son, Frank, on the Wm. Ward farm at present. Thos. Henderson of Algona has been kept quite busy since he has been in our town moving buildings. He has moved two buildings for the Wesley Savings bank and one for Mr. Hopkins. A petition has been presented to our town council to have the street opened between Mr. Eddy's place of residence and Mrs. Ann McPherson's. It seems that Mr. Eddy's house and barn are partly in the street. Mrs. McPherson presented the petition to the'council to have all obstructions and rubbish removed out of the street. Of course the house is the obstruction, but the rubbish we don't know what that can be unless it is Mr. Eddy himself, and if that is a fact we think it ought to be removed at once; the rubbish we mean. A. C. Ripley of Garner was in our town the evening of the 19th having some business to look after that was to come up before our city dads. It was soon discovered that all the ordinances passed by our council were void, and that they had not complied with the full letter of the law. The records did not show that any of them had passed the third reading before they were acted on and passed. Everything had to come to a standstill until matters and things could be righted, and a motion was made to suspend the rules and call for the reading of the ordinance, which was carried. It was real amusing to see some of the sages that are on our council get up and say " I told you all along we did not have an ordinance that was legal." It reminded one of the boy running in and telling the old woman that the cow had eat the grindstone, and she remarked "I told you so." All the ordinances passed by our council are all right, and we have every reason to believe they will be enforced as they should be. W. P. Giddings went to Algona Monday. John Gannon of Bancroft was on our streets Monday. Ben. Reed of Algona drove through our town Monday. Ben. must be care- 'ul and not drive so fast on our streets or we will have our marshal after him. He must understand our town is now .ncorpprated and we do not allow any last driving. Miss Millie Erninons of Hampton is here visiting her grand parents and friends. Crops are looking fine. A few fields of barley will do to harvest this week. Some of the farmers say that they noticed some rust on the oats but not enough to hurt anything. John Longbottom of Prairie has the nicest field of oats we have seen anywhere this summer. Miss Clare Lunbeck of Charles City, district superintendent for the Iowa ducational aid asssociation, occupied ;he pulpit of the M. E. church here Sunday morning. A collection was ;aken for the association which amounted to $37. Another little girl was added to the 'amily of Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Gallagher ;he 23d, John has quit setting up the cigars, says he can't afford to so often. Brunson & Frise shipped two oar- pads of fat hogs from here Monday night, $5,25 was the price paid. Following is the price paid for grain and hay: Wheat, 60c; oats, 23c; flax, 83c; barley, 20@80o; hay, $2.50 a ton. LOTTS CREEK. LOTTS CREEK, July 24.—Two showers this week. Where is the prophet shat ordered cisterns fillled in May? Bring him out here till we duck him in some of pur dry ponds. John Tigdal had his thigh broken while taking the kinks out of a new hay stacker rope at Jno. Goetsoh's in Whittemore. A knot came untied and let the fork fall on him. He is at Mr. Goetsoh's, Dr. Phelps and Grainbuyer Yale of Whlttemore set the leg. Our meat shop is running now for a week or more. All that want good cheap beef come and buy of W. Radig, Radig also runs a meat wagon. * Those that have not time to call on him just 3rop him a card to Lotts Creek and see how quickly and smilingly he serves you. What a small thing will change the minds of the people. There was talk of bringing Hading's shop into Lotts Creek and then building south and take in Whittemore as a suburb. But now we will go north first and take in Armr stron and then the other way. Rad ing's corn on the lot he bought will have to be cultivated soon or it will not pay for the Ipt this year. FENTON.

Mr. Davis has never fully recovered from his sickness early in the summer. The German M. E. church will now have preaching in the morning for the next three months.

Two weeks ago he was unable to come on account of sickness. Mr. and Mrs. Reid moved into their new house last week. Miss Chronholm closed her school last Friday in District No. 3, She must have given good satisfaction as she was very conscientious in the discharge of her duties. Am afraid if certain parties don't make haste we'll not live ^to smell the wedding cake, to say nothing of tasting it. Mr. S. Wilcox has the Ruthven fever too; seems to be contagious.

While at Big Island, Va., last April, I was taken with a very severe attack of di- irrhoea. I never had it worse in my life. : tried several old-time remedies, such as jlackberry wine, paregoric, and laudanum, without getting any relief.

I have no hesitancy in recommending ihamberlain's Colic, Cholera, and Diar- rhoea Remedy to the public, as I do to my 'riends and patrons. 1 used it myself after other well-known remedies had failed, and t cured me in a few minutes. I recommend it candidly and cheerfully upon its merits, not from a financial standpoint, because I have others in stock on which I make a larger profit, but because Chamber- ain's is the best remedy I know of for bowel complaints. There is no doubt about it; t does the work,— James Forgy, druggist, MoVeytown, Pa.

Tho sunshine s almost constant, yet the most violent out-of-door exertion may be undertaken without fear of distressful consequences. Sunstroke or prostration are absolutely unknown there. It is an ideal land for a summer outing.

If you wish to take the trip of a life- .ime, purchase the low rate excursion .ickots sold by all principal lines in the Jnited States and Canada via the Northern Pacific railroad to Yellowstone national park, Pacific coast, and Alaska. Tho trip is made with the ilghest degree of comfort in the ele- jant vestibuled trains of the Northern Pacific railroad, which carry dining cars and luxurious Pullman sleeping cars from Chicago, St. Paul and Minne* apolis to Montana and the Pacific coast, without change, and special Pullman sleepers from St. Paul and Minneapolis to Yellowstone park. The scenery en, route is the most magnificent to be found in the seven states through which the road passes, Beautiful mountains, rivers, valleys, lakes and plains follow each other in rapid succession to delight the tourist, who will also find interest in the agricultural, mining, lumbering, industrial and other interests associated with the development of the great northwest. The crowning glory of the trip through the northwest, however, is the visit to Yellowstone park, the land of hot springs, geysers, and gorgeous canons, and to Alaska with its endless ocean channels, snow-capped peaks, Indian villages, and giant glaciers.
