Reception at the normal building this evening at 8 o'clock. School sections 16-99, 27 and 16-100, 28 are to be sold Sept. 15. Come out this evening to the reception at the normal building. The ceiling of the court room is being patched up, a needed improvement. The democrats are in town today selecting delegates to their state convention. The diagonal road to the depot has been put in good repair, but needs gravel. Dr. Sheetz is delegate to the Knights of Pythias state'meeting, which is held at Cedar Rapids this week. Agent Hedrick sold 53 tickets to Clear Lake Sunday. There were over 5,000 people on the grounds. Letters are advertised for Richard Oxford, Herbert M. Halsey, O. K. Palmer, Miss Sidney Hinton. Rev. DeForrest will preach at the Episcopal church Sunday morning and evening at 11 and 7:30 o'clock. C. M. Doxsee heard McKinley at Council Bluffs, and gives our readers an interesting report of the meeting. The first issue of the Bancroft Register under Bert Hallock's management is very creditable. We wish him success. ! All members of th e W. C. T. U. are requested to meet at the home of Mrs. T. H. Conner, Friday, Aug. 12, from 3 to 5 o'clock. Marriage licenses are issued to H. G. Schick and S. N. Miller, Chris. Green and Kate Raskopt, A. A. Donaldson and Marilla Robinson. The ladies of the Congregational church will serve ice cream in the church parlors Thursday from 6 to 8 o'clock and after the lecture. The republican club met Monday and elected Dr. Sheetz, president; J. R. Jon'es and E. B. Butler, vice presidents; Col. Spencer, treasurer; C. B. Matson, secretary. The lawn fountains at W. K. Ferguson's and W. F. Carter's are great attractions these hot days. By another season the city -will have demands for mains all over town. Work began on the Baptist church yesterday. The stone work will be pushed, and • the carpenters will be ready to put the frame up as soon as the foundation is done. Dr. McCoy has been appointed aide on the staff of Gen. Steadman, commander of the G. A. R. of Iowa. This is very complimentary to the doctor,. and is an honor to Algona. The Congregational church is to have a new coat of paint, and the staging is up already. Henry Weaver and G. S. McMurray fixed it yesterday and Jas. Orr will do the decorating. It is reported that "Kossuth" has sprained his ankle again and will not be able to enter any races this season. He was in training at Bancroft and went lame just as he did last year. The First National bank put in a very fine Dlebold safe last week, with all the modern improvements. It is a handsome piece of work. The modern safe is as intricate as any mechanism there is made. Thos. F. Cooke will attend the road convention at Des Moines next week. All the delegates from the county should attend and help in framing some resolutions expressing the judgment of the public. It is rumored that the annual encampment of the Fourth regiment will occur at Sioux City, Sept. 3. Company P ifl drilling these days preparatory to it, and the boys are doing considerable rifle practicing for the coming state contest. The Baptists are pltnning to put a memorial window in their new church in memory of Luther and Betsy Rist, father and mother of S. S. Rist, and early church workers in Algona. This window will be a fitting tribute to their memory. A letter from Mason City last week said that " Eva T," the John Patterson mare which Landlord Tennant has interested himself in training, could go this season in better than 2:30, That is a good gait and a few years ago would have been the making of any horse. The old Wesley road is being graded on the line east of the Milwaukee depot. This has been one of the worst places on any main-traveled road in the county, and the improvement will be appreciated. A. D. Clarke took the contract in order to insure a good job. Yesterday's State Register reports a terrible accident to the 12-year-old son o' Dr. Baker, formerly of LuVerne, but now clerk of courts at Humboldt. In trying to lead a cow with the rope slip- noosed around his waist, he was dragged 100 rods and hia body was cut nearly in two. City Solicitor Sullivan is looking up the law in the contest over the street leading to the fair grounds by Dr. Read's, M. B. Dalton's, et al. As soon as he decides what the rights of the c % are action will be taken to have il opened. At present it is only about wo rods wide at the south end. Union township is making a big effort to fix one bad road west of the Geo. Simpkins farm, in addition to their jugular taxes they have raised money by subscription to dig over 400 rods of flitch and now the county agrees to Wake a grade. Wm,. p<?dds was in JTHE PPMSft DEB MOINlBt ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10, 1892. ••'••'''''••"•'''•iSittiiilBlill^^ --.-.y. ... town yesterday in connection with the S l sa y s th at until this road is The first case of diptheria for some Mine existed at Jake Neilson's home last Week and as a result his little child was buried Sunday. The usual notice is posted and quarantine established. u ° t °;i, !t 8 ™ t ! ie familv are threatened, out diptheria is a treacherous trouble and our people should be careful. The laying of the corner stone of the ™*n, c church wil l occur tomorrow at iu:30 in the morning. We are not definitely informed whether Bishop Hennessy will be present or not, but the usual ceremony will be observed, i he frame of the church is well up, and a few days now wilt see it enclosed. A number of veterans are planning to attend the national grand army meeting at Washington next month. Among others J. W. Robinson, Dr. Sheetz, E. Tellier, Dr. Barr, J. H, Grover, G. H. Lamson, and Dr. McCoy will probably go. This will be the largest and most elaborate meeting the grand army is likely ever to hold. Eugene Schaffter's lecture on German university life tomorrow evening will be free to all, and will be worth hearing by all. Mr. Schaffter took money earned in working for the Northwestern road and spent over a year in European schools. He was a close observer and tells of what he saw in a manner to both interest and instruct. Mrs. E. S. Streater died at Bancroft Sunday after a long illness. She belongs to the pioneers of the county, settling with her husband in Portland among the first in that part of the county. She leaves a family of eight children to mourn her loss, and many friends who will unite in extending sympathy to Mr. Streater in his hour of trouble. At 8 o'clock this evening there will be a reception at the normal building, given by alumni and old studentsof the normal to the county teachers. The people of Algona are cordially invited to be present. The occasion will afford a good opprtunity to inspect the normal building in its changed appearance and to meet the teachers of Kossuth county. The school board are having a course of study printed. It will be a pamphlet of some 50 pages and they will get 500 copies. The last course was printed during Gardner Cowles' first year, and ill the copies have long since been lost. A well arranged course of study is a great convenience, and the board are acting wisely in having a new one published. The new town on the new railroad east of Reynolds will be on section 24 in Ramsay. It is on Union slough about four miles north of Ramsay post office. No name has been given it yet. It was about decided to call it Clarke, in honor of our attorney, when it was discovered that Iowa has towns named Clark, Clarkesville, etc., and that would be confusing. The town will be ready for occupation about the last of this month. How intricate the business relations the world are getting is shown by the effect of the Homestead strike on the iron work needed for our Algona buildings. The steel girders have cost our contractors very much more than they should, and have been hard to get at all. They are nearly all made at the arnegie mills. Should the steel association succeed in shutting the mills, half the building operations of the country would come to a standstill. John G. Smith spent Saturday at Spirit Lake attending the reunion of the general assembly. A large number of senators and a smaller representation of the lower house were present. They were all taken about the lakes, jiven a chance to inspect the work of the fish commissioner, feasted at the Drleans, and otherwise entertained. Senator Funk was on hand to greet them and the day passed very pleasantly. Mr. Smith says the exhibit of fish in the commissioner's breeding ponds is very fine. An important trade was made last week between C. L. Lund and J . F. Lacy by which the former becomes owner of the grain elevator at the Northwestern depot, and the latter gets the Lund residence in the west part of town. Mr. Lund took possession of the elevator yesterday, but Will Lacy will run it for him for the present. It is his intention to put in a grain buyer and help to make Algona a livemarket for grain. It is fortunate that the elevator falls into the hands of a man so well prepared to make it a valuable institution to the town and to the farmers. Two more honors have been showered on Algona citizens. Last week Dr. Morse was commissioned by Gov, Boies assistant surgeon of the Fourth regiment with rank of captain, and BertMathews was commissioned hospital steward for the regiment The duties of these positions require attendance at the annual encampments and caring for the sick and disabled on such occasions. As the encampment this year comes at Sioux City, it is entirely probable that there will be work to be done, The appointments are both permanent, and our two esteemed fellow citizens are now fixtures in the military machinery of the state. The State Register says Bert Edmonds has entered the big bicycle races at Sioux City and " will bring home a number of prizes to add to his^lready large quota." Over $500 in prizes are offered and today is the opening day. All races are to be ridden on safety bicycles. Munger of Chicago, one of the noted flyers of the country, will be there as well as Clarke of Chicago, Johnson of Minneapolis, and many other noted wheelmen. West, champion of Des Moines and Iowa, will probably not a-o, as he has just returned from .a business trip to New York and is not in good condition. Not long since the papers were railed on to record the death of Billy Wise. It seemed likely that not long hence theTwould be called on to ohroniole thl remarriage of the bereft widow. But now it seems that the ringing of mavHage bells will be indefinitely postponed The prospective bridegroom Kad invited his friends to be present, and had ordered a new suit of clothes, t wife ss m as legally belong. , and the terrors of the law, it nothing else, will, for the time being, restrain his affections. EERSOITAI. MOVEMENTS. Merrill Call is over from Sioux City visiting his grandparents. Mrs. Dr. Charlton of Clear Lake is visiting Mrs. J. J. Wilson. State Veterinary Stalker was in Algona last Friday visiting Dr. Sayers. Dr. Morse's mother came from Des Moines last week and is making him a visit. Miss Jessie Mudge. a Chicago musician of note, is visiting Mrs. E. V. Swotting. Dr. Sayers is a Denver excursionist. He took advantage of the cheap rates and went Saturday. The Estherville Republican says: "Mrs. Bronson of Algona is visiting her sister, Mrs. Geo. Mattson. Mrs. Mary Carter returned to Algona last week from Minneapolis, where she has been visiting for some weeks. J. R. Mulroney of Fort- Dodge came down from Okoboji and spent Sunday with his old time chum J. J. Ryan. Mrs. Dr. Shore came from Des Moines Saturday for a visit, while the doctor is off at Denver and Salt Lake with Dr. Sayers. Mr. and Mrs, Wm. Buckingham of Dubuque spent Sunday at Mrs. E. L. Cooke's. Mrs. Buckingham will visit for some days. Mrs. May Stinson was over from Sheldon for a visit a week ago. She and Charley have not yet decided on moving to Oregon as was reported. Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Danson are home from their trip to Spokane Falls, and look as though they had enjoyed themselves. They visited R. J. Danson there. The State Register notes that "Col. S. S. Sessions of Algona, director of the state agricultural society, arrived in the city yesterday and will remain until after the fair." W. H. Ingham started Sunday evening for St. Paul, where" he took the Canadian Pacific route for Olympia, Wash. He will be gone about four weeks and visit his son George. Rev. and Mrs. Flanigan and Presiding Elder Black and family are home from the Belmond campmeeting. The attendance from here was small, but the other parts of the district turned out big crowds. The meeting was a success, over 100 being converted. Dr. Garfield is not particularly pleased with the western coast. He went as far south as San Francisco, seeing the Sacramento and Willamette valleys, and he comes back to Iowa satisfied that this is the garden spot. He liked Portland as a city, but for the country generally he has no use. He enjoyed the best of health on the journey, and comes back younger looking than ever.

Taylor's.—19t2 FOB real estate time loans at the very lowest rates, make inquiry at the Kossuth County bank. LANGDON & HUDSON are handling home-made bread.—19t2 YOUM BENNET CAUGHT. Ho Went Away with Another Man's Horse and Came Back, 'with the Deputy Sheriff. A young man named Court Bennet came to Algona from Decorah when the water mains were being laid and worked a week in the ditch. Then he hired a pony at L. E. Smith's livery and went off for a ride which it is now learned led to Irvington and then west and south to Blair. Here the pony was disposed of for $20, and Bennetcon- tinued to Valentine, Neb., near which he went to work on a farm. A week ago he wentto town for reaper repairs, and while there the sheriff told him that his Algona friends wanted to see him, and that Sheriff Mclnroe would soon be there to make his trip back pleasant for him. The couple came to town Friday morning and the young man is now in jail awaiting the grand jury. Mr. Mclnroe had some difficulty in locating his man, as his course was rather irregular, and at one time he was in Dakota. But he finally placed him and his arrest is the result. Bennet is a bright appearing young man, He says he is 17 years old, and that this is the first time he ever undertook to appropriate anything which did not belong to him. He was brought before 'Squire Taylor Saturday and bound over in $150 bonds. It is unlikely that any effort will be made to get the pony, as it would likely cost more than it is worth. NINETEEN cent handkerchief sale at Taylor's, today.—19t2 WE have just restocked our 5, 10 and 2oc counters, in basement; no end to the bargains. Geo. L. Galbraith & Co. Bill Nye on Farmers. It is a wonder that we have, as Americans, so long submitted to the savage and dangerous ruts over which we haul our empty, wabbly, worn wagons. The reason is, doubtless, that we generally select our choicest and densest ass to superintend the building and repair of our roads, and in many cities our streets also. He works on the roads in summer and sits on the jury in winter. He is generally a man who is selected because he has never been outside of the county. He is noted for his gravity, gloom, and the opacity of his mind. Another reason is the same that has been fatal to most all farmers' movements, though started with the most holy and honest motives, viz., that we farmers cannot, like the residents of the cities, see each other every twenty four hours and plot against the other trades. When we have done our nineteen hours of work and another hour's wholesome thought, interchanged with our calf kindergarten, and then mutton tallow our bunions, we must needs rest in order to be up and combating with the early bird for the ill-advised worm. JAS, HENDERSON IS DEAD, The Grim Messenger at Last Overtakes Another of Kossuth's Earliest Settlers. His Death a Severe Shock, Notwithstanding His Failing Health—The Funeral Occurs Tomorrow. No announcement in late years has caused more surprise than that of the sudden death of Jas. Henderson last night. It came entirely unexpected to to his family and to the town generally. He has been for some time in failing health, but no one anticipated anything serious. Last evening he ate a heartier supper than for weeks, and said he felt better. About 11 o'clock he spoke to his wife, and sitting up in bed reached for his cane and started to walk across the floor, He had taken a couple of stops when he fell forward. Mrs. Henderson thinks he breathed once after she reached him, but it is likely that he was dead when he fell. Mr. Henderson came to Kossuth in 185C and has been one of the best-known and most active of the original band of pioneers. His funeral will bo held tomorrow at the Methodist church at 2 p. m. A SUOOESSFUL INSTITUTE. The Closing Days With the Teachers —An Enrollment of 314... The county teachers' institute approaches its close with the record of being the second largest ever held in Kossuth. The total enrollment is 214. Supt. Reed has had his usual success in interesting the trainers of the young idea, and more than usually successful in securing his corps of instructors. From one of the teachers we get the opinion that this institute has not been surpassed for good substantial work by any held in late years. The opening exercises of each day have been questions and answers on school law, which Supt. Reed has conducted. The remainder of the day has been devoted to solid work. Prof. Shoup has had the art of teaching in the higher branches and Miss McGovern in primary work, and both have been very successful and very popular. Prof. Dixson in Mathematics is recognized by the teachers as a superior instructor, and Miss Patt's lessons in school drawing are praised by all. The institute closes Friday. The examinations come Monday and Tuesday, and the county will be stocked with teachers for another year. The names of those not enrolled last week are as follows: Algona—Lucy Oalkins, Cassie Mclnroe, Lucy Spear, Mary Dennison, Agnes Randall. Whittemore—A. J. Carlisle, C. E. Anderson. Irvington—Hattie Heath. Ledyard—Ellen Hoolaud. Fort Dodge—Agnes Flaherty. Bancroft—May Barslou. Corning—Belle Shaw. OONriDEKOE MAN CAUGHT. The Gentleman who Got l$ldO In In Algona Will Revisit the Scenes of Ills Escapade. It now transpires that W. B. Quartan has not been in New Mexico, but that his trip was to northern Washington, where he had requisition papers for a man he wanted to see $140 worth. Our readers may recall an item in the spring about a man getting one of our business men to sign a check with him at the First National bank, and having to put up the money. It was not then learned who was the loser. But now that Mr. Quarton telegraphs that he has him it is known that he was the one. The pair were expected in this morning, but will probably not arrive till night. The confidence man will then take a course of prison discipline and reflect on how hard it is to escape the toils of the law. NOT ALGONA'B "TUG." " Tug" "Wilson Runs Away With a Spencer Girl —Another Man With That Name. The Spencer Reporter say s: " There was a sensational elopement in Spencer Tuesday night. One of the real old kind. Two lovers, ' Tug-' Wilson and Maria Lawler, had their dream of happiness interferred with by the parents of Maria, who objected to ' Tug's' a_t- tentions to their daughter. Maria lacked a few months of being of age, when the parents' consent to marriage could be dispensed with, yet the ardor of the young peoples' passion would not brook this delay. ' Tug' got a team and Maria stole away in the shade of the evening, joined her lover, and together they flew to unknown parts. Mr. Lawler had a warrant sworn out for the arrest of the young people, but before an officer can serve it upon them they will probably be blissfully enjoying their honeymoon," Some have the idea that the "Tug" Wilson referred to is Frank Wilson of this place. He is in the north part of the county haying, and is not involved in this sensation. The Autograph Skirt. Philadelphia Times: Mrs. Abner Taylor, the wife of the millionaire congressman, has initiated a startlingly unique fad—perhaps the most unique ever inaugurated by a Washington so oiety lady. It has been customary for a long time in Washington for ladies to secure the autographs of senators, representatives and high public dignitaries in albums. Mrs. Taylor's ambition has outgrown the album etage. There is now passing through the house of representatives one of Mrs. Taylor's undergarments, which is known to the female sex as a skirt. A neat littlo note from Mrs. Taylor is appended, nd- dressed to the representatives of the people in general, requesting each one of them to write his autograph upon the garment. She explains in the note that it is her purpose to embroider the names in silk with a view to possessing, when the ornament is completed, an autograph skirt of the present congress. The passage of this linen affair from desk to desk through the house has created no end of amusement among the congressmen, and many of the more modest of the people's representatives are inquiring where this autograph fad of the la'dies is going to stop. When the garment reaches the senate that august body will probably experience a shock from which'it will take some time for it to recover. NEWS IN THE COUNTY. New Member of the " Bar" at Wesley—Social Doings In Fenton. WESLEY, Aug. 9.—This week will finish harvest in this part of the County. The crops will average as well as last year. Mrs. C. Currio of Mason City has been the guest of Mrs. Heal the past week. Dr. Barr of Algona was in town Wednesday last on professional business. A child of C. L. LivcMnoro has boon very ill for some time but is some better now. Mr. Hoffmaslor, who has been visit- Ing in Illinois and Kansas, returned to Wesley Saturday. He intends to make his home for awhile with his daughter, Mrs. J. E. Hill. Ho reports good crops in Kansas and in the southwestern part of Iowa. The marriage of A. A. Donaldson and Marilla Robinson took place Wednesday evening at the home of the bride's parents. The ceremony was performed by O. Robinson, J. P., the bride's father, and only a few of their most intimate friends and relatives were present. They went to Clear Lako Thursday and will stay for a while witli Mr. Donaldson's folks. Their many friends wish them a happy journey through life. A large number of our Wesley school teachers are attending the institute at Algona. Mrs. Yorker is visiting Mr. Sachel's family at West Bend. Brunson & Frise are shipping lots of hogs. They are paying $5.30. A. H. Young of Cedar Rapids was in town Saturday on his way home from Armstrong, where he was selling town lots for different parties. He says Armstrong is the coming town in the northwest. When asked if he had been admitted to the bar he said, "Oh, yes, I have been admitted to a number of bars since I was in Wesley." Of course we did not doubt his word or take time to look for proof. Quite a heavy shower of rain passed over this part of the county Monday night, which wet the ground up in good shape. Markets: Wheat, GOc; oats, 23c; flax, 83c; hay, $2.50 per ton; hogs, $5.30. FENTON. FENTON, Aug. 8.—There was an ice cream social at the home of Mrs. Tibbetts for the benefit of Rev. A. G. Ward of Bancroft, formerly their pastor, but who has been on the sick list for nearly a year. The proceeds were between $21 and $22. Of course everyone had an enjoyable time, and the crowd was very large. The Epworth league meets every Friday night at the German M. E. church. J. L. Reid and wife are visiting with Mrs. Reid's brother and sister at Estherville. Rev. Forsythe delivered his lecture as given out, and all that attended are well satisfied. Harvesting is well under way. Ernest and Stanley Moore of Ruthven are visiting their parents in this vicinity. Ernest made the trip on his wheel. The young people 'of west Fenton passed an enjoyable evening at the residence of Mrs. Zweifel, on the evening of Tuesday last. A substantial supper was served at 10, and ice cream at 12, dancing and games were the order of the evening. Mr. and Mr. E. V. Sweeting visited at Wm, Peck's on Sunday. We hear some of the Fenton young men have discovered an improvement on the Keeles cure, and wish them success in their efforts. ' Fenton has two meat wagons running now, . LOTTS CREEK. LOTTS CREEK, Aug. 9.—P. J. Walker was kicked in the breast and quite badly hurt last Friday while at the creamery by hie own horse. He is doing quite well. Dr. Pride is attending him. Harvesting is well along although the rain last night will hinder some. We could have got along very well without it. We are better off though than some other localities. At Geo. K. Marble's, Hurt. 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 very liberal patronage given me, and hope with increased facilities to be able to serve you better.

TTc Octs n r-iorxi \viffi In Jitt Hn.s Settled Down to Steady Tho Ron wick Times has the following item of interest concerning a young 1 man who occupied the county baatile a while for forging a note in Lu Verne and selling it to Geo. W. Banna. Those who remember the circumstances will be pleased to learn that Blood has led an industrious and steady life since being released. The Times says: Married, Wednesday Aug. 3, 1892, at the Tyler house, Goldfiekl, Mr. Luther Blood and Miss Bertha M. Schmidt, all of Lu Verne, Rev. Findley officiating. The happy couple will make their home in Lu Verne, who.ro Mr. B. is at present engaged in the well business, though tie intends, wo believe, to go on si farm as soon as he can make arrangements to that effect. We had heard that Luther had been paying extra close attention to business of late, and the reason is now pltiin. May the star of good uck be with them. KccommcmlH U Cheerfully. I havo no hesitancy in recommending Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera, and Diar- •hoea Kemedy to tho public, us I do to my friends and patrons. I used it, myself after other well-known remedies had failed, and t cured mo in a fow minutes. I rocom- nond it candidly and cheerfully upon its merits, not from a financial standpoint, because I havo others in stock on which I inako 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 tho work.—Jnines Forgy, druggist, McVoytown, Pa. Sold by all druggists. Rates to Minneapolis.
