Dr. Ensign has been visited by two brothers the past week, Remember Goeders' cut rate sale of remnants. It is still open. It is rumored that Ringling Bros.' circus will visit Algona next month. Samuel Mayne will bring his standard bred colt to Algona to have her tracked. The wigwam sold a handsome new surrey to John Edwards last week for his livery bai-n. Regular meeting of W. R. C. will bo held at G. A. R. hall, Thursday evening, June 25, at 7:30. Coleman Chubb was in town yesterday, and is about over the effects of his recent runaway accident. We have heard nothing further this week from the milk well. We hope the supply is holding good. Jas. Taylor is off to convention, but everybody can be fitted with summer coats just the same at his popular store. S. Platt of Cresco has lately received a pension of i$6' a month, and John Jacobs will get §12 a month hereafter. A new sidewalk has been put in from the Congregational parsonage to State street on the east side of Thorington. John Q. Hanna, a big ranch owner in Texas and a brother of the boys at Lu- Verno, was an Algona visitor last Friday. Slagle's harness shop is 'now nicely located in the new Goeders building. We welcome this addition to Dodge sti-eet. Surveyor Hutchins says he has not had one day at home in two months, the rush of work in land measuring . is so great. The sale of pews at the Congregational church had reached nearly $1^400 Monday, which is very much more than ever before. A lot of fish were sold last week which D. Hine sent down from the lakes. He can angle them out when anyone can. The St. John's day exercises at the Bancroft Catholic church were held this afternoon, Rev. Nicholls giving the address. The Burt and Wesley ball clubs played a close game at Burt yesterday, the score standing 10 to 14 in favor of the home nine. It is rumored that J. J. Wilson will be supported today in tho democratic convention for tho nomination for lieutenant governor. The Algona ball nine play the Wesley boys tomorrow at Wesley, and Saturday they play the Cresco nine on their grounds in Cresco. W. S. Dorland has just recovered from a very severe attack of peritonitis at his home in Llano, He is now able to attend to business again. The Algona Knights of Pythias go to We_sley soon to assist the boys there in riding the goat and becoming initiated to other mysteries of the order. A big. lumber shed has gone up the past week on the Lantry corner, ahd the Hamiltons will soon have their hard wood lumber under cover. The board of supervisors meet next Monday for their adjourned session. The Blackford hill question will be up for final settlement for one thing. J. B. Winkel has built a new sidewalk, trimmed his trees, and befj'un terracing his lot front the past week, and D. Hine has built a new walk. Messrs. Buell and Nycum have finished examining the treasurer's and auditor's books. If they found anything wrong no one has heard of it. The Baptist church had a large audience Sunday evening to hear the exercises by the children. The programme was excellent and was nicely rendered. The Methodist Sunday school children gave their programme Sunday evening before a crowded house, and it was a very excellent programme of exercises. W. A, Schmidt and Gustina Weise were licensed to wed last week, and Justice Taylor came over to the clerk's office and made them man and wife without delay, E. H. Slagle had a lay-off yesterday from his mail run, and visited at home. His run is from Des Moines to Sum- boldt, and he will take his family to Des Moines soon. Myron Schenck hauled out lumber from Paul's yesterday for a new "barn he is building. When done it will be 56x88 feet on the ground, which is a pretty good sized building. One of our advertisers said yesterday that he knew where he made ten times what his advertisement cost, by having it in. It is needless to say that he is a man who is going to the front in business. Mr. Hewitt and another Northwestern railway official were visiting the business men yesterday talking up business for this fall. They say there is no taoney in a through passenger train to St. Paul. The bills for the O'Rourke celebra- 'tion are out, and besides the regular Fourth specialties, an oration by J. W. 'Sullivan, and reading of the declaration by Miss May Henderson, are promised. We don't know whether to praise Col. Spencer or J. C. Frank, but some one is entitled to praise for trimming up the trees about the Spencer property. It •is a neat job, ,and has wonderfully improved appearances. An old man named Isaac Bunker was sitting watching the ball game at Burt yesterday, and got in line with the catcher who in running for a foul fell over him, and in so doing struck him in the chest, breaking one ahd possibly two ribs. The old man is 61 years old, and the accident is severe on him, but no blame attaches to the players. W. B. Quarton says that western Kansas has had to much rain, and that crops do not compare with those in Iowa. He visited St. .To, Atchison, and Omaha while gone, Mrs. Quarton and the babies accompanying him. Dr. McCoy has received a document from Gen. Veazey, commander of the national grand army, appointing him aide-de-camp on his staff. This is a position of much honor in the grand army and is worthily bestowed. The Emmetsburg ball club played at Mason City a week ago and took along Rob. Philps and Peach Cowan to fill vacancies. They got two of tho best S layers in these parts, but the Mason ity boys were still too many for them. Tho work of putting the new jail rods in has been completed by Rob. Philps arid it is understood that the Aetna company will ask the board to close up matters next week. The new rods are said to be proof against all kinds of instruments. W. F. Carter is back from Nebraska, and he and Geo. Simpkins toll about the same story about the country west of tho Missouri. The people there feel reasonably hopeful in view of good rains, but both say they were triad to get back into Iowa. Next Tuesday evening. June 30, there will be an address delivered at the Baptist church by Miss N. Carton, Formerly a missionary to Burtnah. Admission free. The people are all invited to hear one who has seen heathenism and studied it. W. T. Bourne, president of tho county farmers' alliance, sends the following notice: O_wing to the ftict that the first Saturday in July is tho Fourth, it has been thought best to postpone the meeting of the county alliance for two weeks, or until the 18th. Same hour, 1 o'clock p. m. East McGregor street is improving this spring. Besides J. E. Stacy's large addition to his home, August Sterzbach has been building to his liouse, T. G. Dalton has built a large new barn, and Dr. Garfleld is among those who have indulged the luxury of fresh paint. A. Erickson has taken charge of the Queal lumber yard, and become a permanent resident of Algona. He comes from near Watertown, S. D., and is an old lumberman, having been in the business from boyhood. Ho is a very genial man and an excellent addition to the town. It is not fully decided whether the Catholic ladies will have a lunch room at the state fair or not. There is only one opportunity for them to get a building, and that is uncertain. Father Nicholls was in Des Moines a few weeks ago to investigate, and it is doubtful if tlaey get a place. It has been decided to put the Methodist parsonage on the street facing east, between the church and S. C. Spear's. I. R. Jones and A. D. Clarice agreed to do the grading and build a,ny extra foundation if they would do this. There will be some filling needed and they will have teams at work at once. Considering a heavy rain Saturday northwest, the attendance at the Scandinavian picnic was not as large as was expected. But the flow of good things was unstinted, and the amusement was kept up till tho sun rose. On the Fourth another picnic will be held at Paul Peterson's on section eight in Portland township. J. E. Seattle and Miss Lorena Thompson are to be married at Whitto- rnore this evening, and start for Minneapolis on a wedding trip. Mr. Beattie is Whittemore's prosperous merchant, Find Miss Thompson has for three years been a popular teacher in the Whittemore schools. Many congratulations go with the happy couple. A harmless little cloud burst occurred north of the Milwaukee depot, Saturday, and for several rods drenched things effectually. The line was well' marked Sunday in the road, where suddenly from dry ground the team stepped into soft mud. Geo. Holman aud others witnessed the occurrence, which fortu-' 1 nately was not much of an affair.' Capt, Cooke has been discussing with some of the citizens about having thr annual encampment of the Sixth reg' ment held at Algona the last of next month. Col. Boutin has written him, and with a little expense the matter could be fixed. The encampment would bring about 500 militia men, and two or more companies of regulars. A number of Algona people drove to Buffalo Fork Sunday for the church dedication, and more would have gone but for the rough roads. A crowd too large to be admitted was present, and Rev. Luce was very successful. Over §750 was raised to pay a debt of $600. It is said that the church building is one of the tnost attractive in tho county. About severity masons and relatives went to Clear Lake this morning for the gathering in honor of St. John. Rev. Davidson is to deliver the address of the occasion, and the gathering will be one of the largest masonic affairs ever held in northern Iowa, A special train returns this evening with the. visitors, thus giving them a pleasant day at the lake. The excursion to Ledyard last Thursday took along a goodly number of visitors, but of town lot buyers there seemed to be : a scarcity. The prices put 1 on the lots by the company were pre'tty steep, and they allowed nothing to go at less than the price set. After a good dinner and a good look at what will some day be a good lively town, the visitors returned; We received a 'very handsome pro- gramme of the Iowa City commencement last week with the compliments of T. G. McDermott, who is now a graduate. He and Miss Minnie Morse have'finished the course and now join the alumni. Mr. McDermott has also during the time completed one year of the law course as extra work, and next year graduates from the law also. Quite a crowd gathered at the shooting grounds Monday to witness John G. Smith shoot at 10 live birds, S. S. Sessions agreeing to pay for the birds if nine were killed and if less than nine Mr. Smith agreeing to give him the price of them. Exactly nine birds dropped, and as S. S. refeveed the match himself, he quietly put up for the birds. Mr. Smith was using a seven pound gun he was not used to, but missed only his fifth bird. The Fourth will bo celebrated by a picnic in L. Hurlburt's grove eight miles northwest of Algona. A good programme, which will be given in full next week, is being prepared, including addresses, rending of the declaration of independence, music, recitations, and the usual afternoon horse races, sack races, girl race, egg race, etc. Refreshments will be served _ and a bowery dance and fireworks will conclude the exercises. Those of the crowd, who camo in Saturday for the circus and staid till night, saw the show. Its wornout teams arrived from Britt about 5 o'clock and the evening performance was given to all tho tent would hold. That is was as good as the one a week n.go is small enough praise, and nearly everyone thought it better. For tho price and on better roads it is a good show, having a great many specialties not excelled anywhere. The filing of a petition by W. C. Danson asking for a divorce for Dr. Tuttle of Wesley from his wife, brings the facts of an unsavory scandal before the public. Tho petition charges adultery with Mr. Barrett of the bank in Wesley, tho facts stated being of public notoriety in the eastern part of the county. All tho parties have stood high in Wesley, and the suit, which comes at tho next term of court, will make unpleasant revelations, A couple of young men arrived Monday to fix up tho water works tank, and began work at onco. Tho water was let out of tho stand pipe, and a float put in and is being gradually raised by pumping water in. As tho workman go up they calk tho openings. They have orders to stay till the work is done and until tho council accepts the standpipe. This means that at least ono part of tho system will be completed at once. The normal school board at its mooting last week resolved in view of tho sentiment of tho town to continue the school. They are already In correspondence with several who desire to take charge of it, and one teacher is expected to be in town this week to look over the chances. Prof. McCollum made the board a proposition, but bo- fore accepting they will canvass the field. The sentiment among the business men was quite generally favorable to another attempt to secure a state school at Algona. The excitement at the herd grounds at Tuttle's lake has subsided, and tho wagons of returning cattle owners have been passing through town for several days. They all got their stock and are making other arrangements for keeping it. Tom Mclnroe had tho herd, in all 4,800 head of cattle, and the feeding fields were too small. He notified tho owners and everything was settled amicably. This experience is tho beginning of tho end of herding, and pasture land will soon bring good rent. Prof. Dick, the circus man, delivered a little lecture on road making in northern Iowa that was well worth tho " price of admission" to those who were standing around as he viewed tho remains of his teams when ho came in from Britt. Some of the horses were killed on the way, and a lot more had one foot in the grave, and it had taken ten hours to drive 22 miles with half loads. The professor was very emphatic, and entirely justified, for if there is a dark blot on tho civilization of Kossuth and Hancock counties, it is the lack of ability or willingness to have passable highways. There isn't an east and west road that is passable after a heavy rain, and they have all been traveled well on to thirty years. The opening base ball game of tho season was played Friday afternoon between the organized nine and a combination which included such talent as W. L. Joslyn, H. E. Rist and B. F. Haggard in the field; A. L. Rist, F. S. Stough and Harvey Inghain on the bases; Melzar Haggard, shortstop, Rob. Philps and Mr. Walters, catcher and pitcher. In spite of the valorous efforts of the combine the boys got the most scores. As there is a dispute about the number it is best to say nothing about it, in fact after the game was over the >»pnversation didn't run to the scoro at '\but was confined to personal expori- ,es in stopping the ball. This was me by the aggregation with various arts of the anatomy, as was evident by . pots plainly visible to the naked eye. Space does not permit a review of all the brilliant plays, but the way the county attorney took in the fly balls excited universal admiration. Challenges to the defeated must hereafter include wizard oil as part of tho stakes, or they will not be considered. SEE our $2.25 shoe for ladies. The best in town for the money. F. S. Stough.

Sheep Raising: In Iowa and Sonic of the Profits that Will Aocrne by Closely Following- It, Also Some Points Worth Remembering About the Care and Handling of These Animals. It 1ms long been a matter of surprise to me that a state so well adapted to sheep raising as Iowa should have so few. HtM'niintural advantages for this branch of industry are many. The soil is admirably adapted to the sheep, the climate dry and bracing, and the winters far less severe for the sheep than the damper climate of the eastern stales. From the slate auditor's report we find that in ISO" there were 1,854,008 sheep in tlio state, wliilo in 1878 there were only 288,228, a decrease of nearly 100,000 a year for 11 years. What was Iho cause of this decrease? About the close of Ihe war when sheep and wool were high, groat numbers of sheop were driven into the stale and sold or let out on shares to farmers who were not prepared to Iceop them and who knew little of the business. A great number of those were infected with scab and other maladies, and as a matter of course died olT in largo quantities, and the average farmer got sielc of the sheop business. Perhaps there are some persons present who kept sheep in those days. I have heard my neighbor, Mr. Stacy, tell of hunting sheop away out on the prairie eight or ton miles from homo with a, Held glass. Then again thoso sheep were mostly of of tho small wool producing breed, and when tho price of wool fell, tho profit was gone. Then when sheop were at a discount, cattle and hogs wore paying better and thoro was no inducement for a revival of the sheop industry. But for the last few years cattle have boon low, and thoro has been a greater demand for sheep. With Iho introduction of tho mutton broods tho farmer no longer depends wholly upon tho price of wool for his profit. Careful experimenters have shown that mutton can be produced as cheaply as boof. If this is so thoro is profit in sheen with wool considerable lower than it is at present. No other animal is capable of supplying a larger number of tho wants of mankind than tho shcpp. Over five hundred and twenty millions, according to lato estimates of tho various breeds, supply thoso wants. Habiliments from the crown of tho head to to the solo of the foot, of every description for men, women, and children, also tho most healthy food for tho strong and weak, and doubtless many a homo is yet illuminated with tho tallow dip. The industry is one of tho oldest as well as most favorite occupations of men. Tho second born on earth was a keeper of sheop. In Genesis 88, 12, mention is first made of sheep shearing. Judah, son of Jacob, it is related, lost his wife, was comforted, and wont to his sheep shearing. The account is meager, not giving the weight of lleeco or carcass, or of premium offered. During tho last few years farmers have boqn passing through a period of depression in all branches of agriculture. But rather than sit down and complain of hard times wo should seek to lessen tho cost of production. Manufacturers have ever been active in perfecting inventions and machinery to lessen the cost of their goods, and tho Limo has come, it seems certain, when farmers of all classes will bo obliged to "lye serious consideration to the same thing. Competition is growing stronger each year in tho markets of the world. And yet, to diminish tho cost of production, 20 per cent, completely ofsots a reduction of 20 per cent, in selling value. Is it possible to do this with tho flockV To illustrate, thoro arc many /locks of sheep in tho country averaging not more than seven pounds of unwashed wool per head, with this at 25 cents per pound or $1.75 per head, the flock master would bo well satisfied. Now supposing ho puts a little more brain work into tho business, or rather, suppose he puts a little more business principles into the management, and as a result of better brooding and bettor keeping which ho can got on his own farm, and probably without adding to general expense account, he can crowd the average up to nine pounds per head as it is possible to do. That amount at 1!) cents per pound will bring about as much for tho wool as seven pounds at 25 cents per pound, and the better brooding and keeping will also advance tho value of tho surplus stock. It moans using only purebred sires, This will enhtvncu tho value of tho increased stock without adding greatly to tho cost per head. It also moans bettor care, keeping tho flock closely culled and using only good ewes for breeding. With our new tariff laws in force many of our wool growers predict a bettor time for tho industry, a greater demand for the home product, and considerable better prices than have been obtained for five or six years past. To obtain a high price for our wool it must bo honestly grown and of oven fibre. By tho fibre is meant tho relative strength of the wool. This must be evenly developed, and thus bo able to bear an equal tension in all parts throughout its length. The secret of growing good fibre does not at all do- pond upon the breed of sheep nor grade of wool, but on tho continuous good health and keeping of tho sheep while the fleece is growing. Every neglect such as starvation ana undue exposure to storms during tho winter, causes a weakened growth of fibre during that period. During tho summer, while grass in plenty, about all tho care sheop require is yarding at night as a protection from dogs and wolves, and their weekly allowance of sjilt, but when tho cold rains commence and until they are sheared in tho spring they should be kept dry. No sheep will thrive when its coat of wool is soaked with water, and it must stand out in the cold and shiver. Besides sheep thus sheltered will shear from one to two pounds more wool than those exposed to all kinds of weather, and the wool will sell for & higher price in tho market, as it will look much nicer when tied up in tho fleece, to say nothing ol the health and better condition the sheep will be in after the wool ie taken pji, The flrst element in success in the winter care of sheep is the providing of dry airy shelter. The second is sufficient nutritious food at this particular stage of the year. Tho next condition which will ndd to success, is a variety of food. There is no animal that will do bettor with a variety of feed than the sheep, and they seem to require it. In tho summer they find the variety in eating all kinds of weeds as well as grass, while cattle will eat only tho grass. Last, fall I cut up some corn, and while tho fodder lasted, would give the sheep a feed of stalks in tho morning and tamo hay at noon and night, with an occasional feed of straw, and I found ^ they relished tho change. If grain is fed, feed it in tho afternoon, t feed tho grain whole and prefer corn and oats mixed, equal parts. Tho manner of feeding has much to do with tho health of tho sheop. T usually food hay in racks, but, somo- limes on tho ground, if it is dry and clean. It scums to bo the nature of tho sheep to move about, for their food, and they seem to enjoy moving from place to place while they are eating. But tho most important thing of all is during tho season of cold weather to keep tho (lock dry both overhead and underfoot. If it is wet, underfoot it is the cause of the so called foot rot,, and when that disease is established in a Hook it Is almost impossible to break it nit. 1 once hoard an old farmer say tliatshoep men worn tho happiest as well as tho most, independent farmers on earth. 1 don't know but thoro is something in that. Tho great variety of articles for personal comfort and convenience tnnmi- lactured from their fleecy coverings Lends to such a result, which is further induced by the fact that in no branch of farming is thoro greater exemption from continuous drudgery, or so great a saving in tho natural or" acquired fertility of tho soil. But wo must not consider all tho profit in shoop is in tho direct roturift in dollars and conls. Thoro is no other stock so valuable In recuperating worn out soil. Scientists toll us thoro is no other animal whoso manure is so rich as that of tho shoep, with Iho possible exception of swine. I have noticed this particularly tho lost fow years. My ;orn being much bettor where I ha.ulod manure from tho shoop pens, than on that where I hauled from tho cattle yard. And now what is tho future prospect of tho shcop industry? Is thoro danger of over-production? When we romom- that wo do not produce half tho wool consumed in tho United States, there would seem to bo no danger of over-production for some time to come. Tho people of tho United States consume about six hundred million pounds of wool annually, while wo are only producing about two hundred and fifty million pounds, leaving throe hundred ind fifty million pounds to bo imported in wool and woolen goods. Thoro is ilso a growing demand for mutton, and mutton eatery are increasing at a rapid rate in this country, and so long as meats are higher in Croat Britain than they are hero, mutton from South America and Now Zealand will go there instead of horo. Thoro are in tho United States only about forty-throe million sheep, while we need ono hundred million to suppy tho demand, leaving 1 a deficiency of llfty-sovon million. Why not raise our share of that num- 3or right hero in Kossuth county. DOUGAL WALLACK. PEBS'ONAL MOVEMENTS. Dr. Sayers was called to Ron wick Monday. Mike Winkol came homo last week 'or a day's visit. Prof, and Mrs. McCollum arc at Berea, Ky., visiting and spending vacation.

From there Mr, Wilson goes at onco to California, where his sister is lying very sick. Miss Jessamine Jones returned from Iowa City Saturday, having finished her first year at tho university. She took part in tho declamatory contest at commencement, and tho Vidotto says: "Miss Jessamine Jones, with 'Uncle Daniel's Apparition,' excited groat merriment. Her voice, although a trifle weak, was very melodious, and her expression was beyond criticism. Her effort is deserving of much praise." Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Wheeler, Mrs. Starr, Alice Mann, and Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Doxsoo attended tho agricultural college commencement last week at Ames. Tho occasion of interest was tho dedication of Morrill hall. Tho hall is reported to bo an admirable work of architectural skill. It contains a chapel with a seating capacity of 650, a library with a capacity of 50,000 volumes, museum, lecture rooms and laboratories for tho department of natural history arid geology.
