Rosewall. tangdon & Hudson are making bargains these hot days in groceries. The general report is that good fields of corn are up with the season. A great deal is silking out. Work will soon begin on Frank Nicoulin's handsome new home. G. S. McMurray has the contract. Prof. Geo, E. Reed, our former normal teacher, is conducting a teachers' Institute in Pocahontas county. A very pleasant reception was given at Dr. McCoy's Monday evening in honor of Miss {Jjems of Minneapolis. Philip and Henry Dorweiler were over from Garfield Saturday, and they eay corn is all right over that way. The W. H. M. S. will serve ice cream and cake on court house lawn, Tuesday evening, Aug. 9, from 7 to 10 o'clock. The young people of the Baptist church will serve ice cream at the home of John Willey, Aug. 5. All in- 'vited. It is reported that Deputy Mclnroe is out in Nebraska after the man who stole Liveryman Smith's horse some weeks ago. The Carolinians sang last evening to a good audience in the Methodist church, and gave the old plantation melodies in true plantation style. Lightning hit the house of Mr. Bam- say Monday, knocking off a chimney only. Last Thursday it killed a cow for Sam. Patterson north of town. Alex. Dorweiler and Miss Anna E. Hayes are to be married today at the Catholic church in Whittemore. THE UPPKR DES MOINES joins in congratulations. Geo. D. Osborne, a nephew of D. Rice and Mrs. Ingham, is candidate for the republican nomination for recorder inHumboldt county. We wish him 'success. The Good Templars will give an ice cream social on the court house lawn, Thursday evening, Aug. 4. Music by the band. A cordial invitation is extended to all. The Catholic church choir went to Whittemore this morning for the Dorweiler-Hayes wedding. A reception is tendered this evening at the Grand Central hotel. P. M. Taylor sold the Stanton farm north of town Monday to Mr. Kressin for $3,520 all in cash, and had the bills in his hands for a wbile. It is a good deal of money. Among our enthusiastic fishermen is C. Sessions, who yesterday pulled out a 5i pound pickerel. He felt as proud as a man ought to over getting so bier a fish here in the river. Prudence lodge, No. 205, will hold its regular meeting Thursday evening, Aug. 4, at 8 p. m. Visiting 'brethren invited. Much interesting matter will come before the lodge. Plans are being discussed for giving a reception to the teachers' institute and the public generally at the normal building, and allowing them to inspect the new arrangements. The front of the new bank building on State street will be brown stone throughout, and on Dodge stone and pressed brick. It will be one of the handsomest buildings in Iowa. Brunson & Waterhouse and O. E. Palmer have decided to build where the cigar factory stands, and will begin this month. They have not decided whether to build of wood or brick. Ex-Super Visor Studer was in town yesterday and he says he has 50 acres of corn that is better than a year ago, If the fall is as favorable he thinks corn will be better than last year. Miss Zerwick went to Des Moines Friday for a month's vacation before the normal school opens, She takes Miss Adams' place in the faculty, and is a, teacher of fine education and ample experience. Mike Hubbard has a bad eye as a result of the powder explosion last week, and is threatened with blindness, although with care he may entirely recover. The blast cut his hand badly, hesldes burning his face. The institute with 203 teachers here the second day ranks way up at the front of county institutes. A big attendance is a good thing, for half the benefit of the meeting comes from the associations and enthusiasm of a crowd. Another handsome business front will soon grace state street. D. H. Hutoh- ins is putting large plate glass windows in his building and entirely remodeling it for the new clothing firm from Blue Earth. ...... side. It is likely that Mason City will get the eastern terminus of the new railroad across the north end of the county. A tax has been voted to connect at Forest City. This will be a good line for Mason City, as it taps a rich territory. " We hear that Wm. Goodrich had his parn chopped in two in the middle in the big storm a week ago, and one half •was twisted off the foundation. It was JL Wg barn and the damage is serious. u - H. Pendleton also suffered in the storm. 9 1 B. Matson was up at Armstrong £ "day and reports the new city as Doomfpg. Two buildings are up, and a system of waterworks under way. J. §• Graham, Campbell & Reynolds, and Sist of a big well across the town site from the depot, from which the railway will be supplied through a main along the business street. W.F. Carter's trotter and E. P. Jtjircher's pacer are not in the hands of inotnas at Mason City as stated last week; another driver has them. They were sold out by Thomas last year here at home and had all they want of his training. Boating on the mill dam is getting to be a popular amusement. There area number of fine boats on the river and the past week a new boat house has been built by the owners. As the boats are for rent everybody can ride who wants to. Those who heard Eugene Schaffter's lecture on " William Tell" will be interested in his description of school life abroad Which he gives the teachers next week Thursday evening. The lecture will be in the Congregational church and open to all. Miss Amy Clark, daughter of E. C. Clark and granddaughter of Mrs. Elhenan Clark, Was married yesterday to Mr. Arnold, a Humboldt merchant. Miss Clark was a well-known normal student and many friends will wish her all joy in her married life. The new opera house will bo supervised in the building by a man from Minneapolis sent by architect Carter. Mr. Call intends to have everything done to make tho building right, and his superintendent will arrive as soon as the stone walls are done. J. J. Wilson's horse took fright at a cat Monday just as it had been left standing in the buggy shed, and started out on the street on its own hook. It landed against a tree speedily, and a pair of badly smashed thills was the result. No other damage was done. It is likely that C. L. Lund will be actively urged at tho democratic state convention as a candidate for railway commissioner. He ran on the state ticket once before for the place but was beaten at the polls. It is entirely likely that he will get the nomination. A remarkably low railway rate is made to Denver, $14:95 for the round trip from Algona. Tickets are on sale the rest of this week, good for 30 days, and all who want to go to the mountains will never have a cheaper chance. C. M. Doxeee, W. P. Jones, and others are planning to go. The inter-state rifle contest in which members of Company F are interested will come this week at Ft. Sheridan the week following tho opening of the world's fair in October. Iowa ought to win this year and Company F should be off, put on his new suit, hung the old one on the bank and went his way. One of our fishermen seeing the clothes on the bank, and no one about, thought •someone was drowned, and searching parties were organizing when Mr. Wolpert said-he had sold anew suit to a man, who said he was going to the river, and could tell the old one. He identified sensation represented ag Mike Walsh st and Orr is repainting the in- •ain. Capt." Cooke iOt last year. . The social union club had one of the most largely attended meetings last Friday evening it has yet held. Dr. McCoy read a paper, Miss Mary Smith gave a recitation, and excellent music was rendered. It is understood that at the next meeting J. J. Ryan will discuss Knute Nelson's chances to be governor of Minnesota, and that Thos. F. Cooke will have a paper. The full plans of the new opera house arrived Monday, and they give promise of the handsomest opera hall in Iowa of the size. The front of tliebuildingalso will be a great ornament to Algona, and this being our only three-story building, it seems to be all around worthy of note. Mr. Call has the plans at his office, and says that work will be pushed as rapidly us possible. Peter Carmody was in town Monday. A little over a year ago Peter was converted at a revival and his wife had the insane commission examine him. Then when he was away at work she sold all his personal effects and departed for other fields. Peter says that since then she has also been converted and that they are now living together and are moving to Estherville, All's well that ends well. The democratic county convention comes next Wednesday, and then we shall know whether the faithful are willing to stretch out their hands for the offices or not. A good fighting delegation can get J. J. Wilson, or J. J. Ryan, or J. W. Hinchon a congressional nomination, and put Jas. Taylor on the state ticket. We have done all we can to encourage a little enterprise in the matter, but at present the case looks hopeless. Senator Chubb was up at the lot sale at Reynolds last Saturday. Some 10 or 12 lots went at $250 and $200 apiece, and several business houses are assured. J. J. Budlong will open a lumber yard, and three general stores and a milinery shop are to go in. A few years ago Chubb Bros, had about all of Harrison township for a herd ground. And here is a city started in it, and land selling for $250 for 150 by 22 feet. Times change, J. R. Jones says the prospects fora grain crop can be tested somewhat by the demand for machinery.. Whale the sales this year may not quite come up to those of last, he says they will be near it, and in some lines better. i±e has been selling a great many harvesters, sending a car to Wesley, and one to Whittemore for distribution, and others to Bancroft and other stations. There is lots of grain in the county, and good grain too. Some weeks ago Max Herbst on returning from Chicago had his vest and a $125 watch and some money stolen in the Wagner sleeping car. Tlr.-ouc'Jj Geo. F,. Clarke he has brought suu aeainst the company and will undouot- edly recover damages. There were only five occupants in the car, and they were all in in the morning so that » was inevitable that the porter either was escorted to the scene, the clothing, and so the ended. Thos. F; Cooke has been appointed by Gov. Boies general inspector of small arms practice for the state, this position carrying the rank of colonel, This necessitates his resignation as captain of Company F, and gives him full charge of the rules and management of the rifle practice of the four Iowa regiments. In addition he has entire charge of the preliminary rifle contests of the state shooters, and also has the state team in charge at the inter-state tournaments. The appointment came unexpectedly and is a high compliment to Capt. Cooke and a recognition of faithful and efficient service tendered at the suggestion of his brother officers. In his new position he is a member of the governor's staff and will appear at all state occasions. F. M. Taylor was a witness of an amusing episode on the Northwestern train last week while coming from Des Moines. A Dane was coming to Humboldt on a limited ticket which expired at Ames, although he was getting along as fast as he could. Up about- Jewel Junction the conductor told the Dane he must pay or be put off, and the Dane replied that he wouldn't pay nor get off till he reached Humboldt, and at Kamrar the brakeman and conductor tackled him. At first the brakeman struck him but the passengers interfered. After that they wrestled till the railway men were winded and a car seat broken, but the Dane clung to the benches as fast as ever. When they saw they were not able to dislodge him they talked about a policeman and arresting him, but they went off and did not return, and as Mr. Taylor left the train at Eagle Grove the Dane was still riding on his expired ticket and waiting for Humboldt. FEBSONAL MOVEMENTS. Mr. and Mrs. F. S. Dingley are at the lakes. C. C. St. Glair spent Sunday in Mar- shaltown. Dr. A. L. Rist is home from his week at Okoboji. Mrs. Dr. Shore is expected home for a visit in the near future. Geo. E. Clarke is off at Forest City and Fort Dodge on business this week. Mr. and Mrs. Hay will visit Denver this week, and spend a few days in the mountains. S. S. Sessions has gone to Des Moines for state fair work, and will remain till the fair closes. The Sunday excursion to Okoboji was not largely attended from the east. A big crowd came on the western and southern trains. Miss Gove, who visited Mrs. Wm. K. Ferguson a year ago, is returning from her Denver visit, and will be in Algona a week or more meeting her friends. Miss Hattie Stephens goes to St. Paul today on a visit. Her cousin, Miss Barnes of Elgin, 111., who has been Vis- ing her, goes to Charles City to visit friends there. Mr. and Mrs. C. B. and Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Paul are in Algona visiting relatives. C. B. is studying medicine at Iowa City, and J. E. has been on a trip which has taken him through Canada to the Pacific coast and down into Washington.

We intend to move into our new store soon, where we will have more and better room. I heartily thank my friends in Burt and vicinity for the veiy liberal patronage given me, and hope with increased facilities to be able to serve you better. We have some bargains to offer that are worth your while to look at. I am here to sell goods as low as possible, but will not buy cheap, shoddy goods. One hundred nice presents for the first one hundred ladies who call on us The Des Moines News conveys an tonishing bit of information to its readers this week as follows: " The information that Willie Hallock will start a paper in Bancroft, Kossuth county, revives an incident in a tragedy which stirred up the whole state ten years ago. Many people will remember the brutal murder of Mayor Stubbs of Polk City by two men who called him to his door and shot him down. These men were tracked to Elkhorn Grove in Audubon county and for three days held at bay 1,500 men. Finally they were driven out by hunger. One was shot down, and the other lynched two weeks later in Harlan. During the siege in Elkhorn Grove, Willis Hallock, then a boy, who was with the besiegers, ran onto the two murderers in the brush and before he could shoot them or give the alarm they shot him down. For weeks his life was despaired of but finally he recovered. Citizens of Audubon and Cass counties presented him with a medal and purse and ho took the money to educate himself. He later on engaged in the newspaper business and by his grit and energy has succeeded in making a good reputation in his chosen profession." Whatever Hallock the News may have in mind it certainly is not our late local on the Republican and before that peaceable and orderly farmer boy of Burt, whose brother is to open up at Bancroft. Think of Willis Hallock running two murderers into the brush in the hope of getting a shot at them 1 Shades of the peaceful quakers defend us. The bare thought of such a circumstance is overwhelming. Willis may have often set the dog on steers in the corn, or pelted frogs with a pea shooter, or even twisted a hen's neck, -and helped to ring the porcine snout, but we feel safe in saying positively and unqualifiedly that he never ran with revolver waving very far after men who had weapons and a well-known habit of using them, and that the News' story is essentially, a libel. Al. Adams Visits Algona. In the last Humboldt Independent Al. Adams says: "As a very interesting and agreeable after-piece to the editor's meeting at Spencer the Independent firm enjoyed a treat at Algona while waiting between trains. While at the hotel waiting for time to go by vere called upon by Mrs. A. D. Clarke in her family carriage and taken to ride nearly all over the city, and noted with pleasure the many elegant residences in well kept grounds in the different parts of town; the views on north Thorington street being especially delightful, as also the several blocks in the neighborhood of W. H. Ingham's, A. D, Clarke's, and Dr. Sheetz' residences. The time spent was one of the jolliest hours of many years and we shall credit Mrs. Clarke with adding a year to the life of the editors by her thoughtful kindness. May her shadow never grow less. There is a large amount of new building being done in Algona this season. The new opera house building, the new bank building, and the new A. D. Clarke building being the most notable. We are glad to note the growth of our enterprising sister on the north, and we believe we lose no reputation for fairness in say- iny that the future of Algona is to be an extraordinarily bright one." Interesting but Not True. The Britt Tribune of last week says: "Work on the new brick block will be commenced now immediately, the contract having been lot to Capt, E. C. Collins of Garner, Iowa. The builders were so unfortunate as to let the former contract to an unprincipled carpenter from Algona, who went back on his agreement, and work had to be temporarily suspended. The owners are very much pleased to think that they have this time dealt with a man of responsibility, and Mr. Collins' name in connection with the work assures a good job. The building is to be ready for occupancy Nov. 1." The " unprincipled carpenter" is O, W. McMurray and inquiry elicits from him that no contract was signed by him nor made by the builders. He made a bid, which was not accepted. New plans were made and he made another bid, * They then wanted him to sign the contract to do the new work on the terms of the first bid, which he refused to do. That is all there is of this story. Our esteemed contemporary could have given Capt. Collins a good puff, and still stated the facts. dian reservation, and is allowed a 30- day leave of absence each year, and is now around looking up the family, and stopping a day or so with each. He is a member of the South Dakota legislature and has been since it became a state. The first time he ran he had a rather hard pull to get the nomination; but the second time he was nominated by acclamation and elected by a large majority. He was offered tho United States senatorship by the alliance party of his state two years ago, provided ho would favor a few certain bills that were up before the senate, but being a republican dyed in the wool he had the moral courage to say no, that he would not sell out his principles for anything of the kind. He is an older looking man than the doctor, but is two years younger. He is a very genial man and many of our citizens will remember his visit pleasantly for tho time spent with him while ho was here. Bert Giddings spent Sunday with his friends at Garner. Mrs. T. R. Hackett of Hawardon and her sister, Miss Spcenbury, are hero visiting their sister, Mrs. William Presnell. A couple of "dago" peddlers were picked up one day last week for selling in our town without a license. They kicked a little at first, but when they had to face the heated countenance of our mayor as he puffed into his office from supper, they concluded to pay their fines and leave the town. Miss Fannie Waito of Hampton arrived here on Monday to visit her parents, Mr. and Mrs. O. Robinson. Albert Donaldson of Clear Lake and Marilla Robinson of Wesley are to bo united in marriage on Wednesday, Aug. 3. Mr. Donaldson is well known here and is a wide-awake, enterprising young man, while his intended wife is one of Wesley's finest young ladies, a daughter of O. Robinson, and is highly respected by everybody here. A fuller report will be given later. Jake Isenberger of Burt was doing business in our town Monday of this week. He says Burt is booming as well as the rest of the towns in the county. John Ward has been in Chicago on business for the past week. Guy M. Butts was visiting friends at Plymouth Saturday, and stopped over Sunday at Mason City to see his best girl.

HAVE IT THEIR OWft WAY, School Mains ftnd Masters Hate Possession of the Town and It Big Institute is the Result, The Session Began on Monday Morning with an Attendance of 803—The Record Thus Fat. FENTON. FENTON, Aug. 1.—Miss Flannigan closed hor school in the Dreyor district Saturday. Harvesting will soon be here and the hot weather is here, so they say; should judge so too, from the amount of sighing that was to be heard from all quarters, " Oh, for a breath of fresh air." Miss Wessel closed her school in the Light district Tuesday. Her services were highly spoken of and it was hoped she would come back to teach the winter term. The Epworth league has recovered; think it must have been sick for awhile. Mrs. Zweifel has moved into her new house. Chickenpox is the fashion with some folks. Angle Moore is visiting in east Fenton. Wm, Harsh and family of Bancroft were visiting with their parents last week. Miss Anna Wessel goes to visit her brother at LeMars and be there at the dedication of the church being built by Rev. Geo. Wessel. S. Wilcox made a flying trip toRuth- uen last week, Mr. Roach is slowly recovering from a long sickness and he looks very poor- The teachers have the town this week to the number of 203, and they are welcome. Their annual visits suit the summer season nnd they enliven us just when we need it most. Algona greets them cordially. The formal reception was tendered last evening. Mayor Sheetz in one of his happiest addresses welcomed them, Miss Simms responded appropriately for the teachers and Ruth Reed for the scholars. Prof. Shoup followed with interesting lecture on "The Old Schoolmaster." A quartette consisting of Miss Cora Sotchcll, Mrs. Maggie Waldo, D. T. Smith and Geo.

WESLEY, Aug. 1.—Farmers in this part of the county have commenced to harvest their barley, and they say it is a good crop. A gentleman named Oleson of Britt has opened a barber shop over Kunz' store. He has a pleasant place for a shop, and from the manner in which he handles his razor one would think he is "on to his job." The building boom still continues. Z. S.

Tho mill will be fitted throughput with the latest improved machinery, using gas and electricity as a motive power. As there is no mill within 20 miles of the new town the new institution will no doubt prove a great boon for the farmers and a profitable investment for the proprietors.
