F M Taylor has a tomato in his garden' that is 14i inches in circumference. Can anybody beat it? .Rev. Dorward writes that he will be In Algona and preach next Sunday at the'Congregational. church. Eugene Tellier has tickets for the veterans who will attend the state fail- on soldiers' days, Aug. 30-31. Thos Hanna has bought four lots in Hurt and 20 acres adjoining the town and is talking of building a house this fall. E N. Weaver has been adding porches and new paint to his fine home lately. He has one of the pleasantest places in Algona. Work on the A. D. Clarke building was delayed by the failure of the iron pillars to arrive or it would have been finished this week. At the meeting of the state bicycle association at Sioux City last week Thos. F. Cooke was elected representative to the national meeting. Letters are advertised for A. J. Min- naffh, J. A. Gibson, Miss Marion Decker E. V. Coffin, Mrs. Katie Weayer, Thomas Turner, F. W. Porter. N. C. Taylor informs us that Chas. Neilis' boy was kicked in the head by a colt last week and nearly killed. For sometime it was thought that he was dead. The name of H. A. Bancroft, a former Kossuth county teacher, appears in the programme of graduating exercises at the Decorah institute to be held Aug. 26. The business patrons of this paper will be waited on during the week, the present issue closing another financial quarter. The collector will be brief and to the point. It is rumored that Creed & Parish will put a hardware store in one room of the A. D. Clarke building, and that Bertha Carey will open a general store in the other. Chas. E. Jones went to Sexton yesterday to take charge of Bender Bros.' new elevator there. He will buy for them and will be a good man. They were lucky in getting him. Six brick-layers are at work on the Ferguson-Hoxie block and the walls are going up rapidly. The iron posts and plates for this building are being cast at the Algona foundry. J. E. Paul has accepted a job for John Paul at Spencer and was moving his family and effects to that place yesterday. He will be a good man for the company and has a good place. Another military commission has been received in Algona, and G. H. Lampson is appointed on the staff of State Commander Steadman. This is an honor worthily conferred. The state crop report says oats are of very light weight and are yielding from 12 to 30 bushels per acre. Wheat and barley are making a better showing, although hardly up to the average. The regular meeting of the W. C. T. U. will be held in the reading room Friday at 3 o'clock p. m. All members are earnestly requested to attend, as there is important business to attend to. ' Dr. Davies of Emmetsburg was over yesterday to help Dr. Morse operate on B. J, Hunt for fistula of the bladder. Mr. Hunt has been sick for many weeks, but hopes are felt for his return to health. The following brief item in the Emmetsburg Reporter contains news that will interest a large number in Kossuth: "Born, to Mr. and Mrs. T. U Grose, Aug. 9, a son." May good luck attend this tardy youngster. Eev. Sherman Lumbar and Mr. and Mrs. M. E. Lumbar are home for a short summer visit. Rev. Lumbar preached Sunday evening at the Congregational church and it is thought will occupy the pulpit Sunday morning. County Superintendent Donlon was over from Emmetsburg last Friday, and missing his train home attended the lawn party and enjoyed a social evening in Algona. Prof. Donlon is a popular official over west and a genial man to visit with, Rev. Rome Walker was confirmed Sunday as pastor in. the Baptist denomination. Miss Nellie Walker went from Algona to attend the ceremony. Rome is located at Bloomington, has a good Position, and ia progressing rapidly in his chosen calling. The call for the republican county convention this week brings the political contest into near view. Chairman Doxsee calls the meeting for Sept. lo, which is about the right time, late enough to avoid hot weather and early ! enough for a full canvass. Caucus calls vyiU now be in order, The announcement of S. S. Sessions this week as a candidate for county attorney opens the local political contest convention this fall and matters prominen is no one who would receive more cordial ^upport from this paper if he is nominated, and his many friends in the county will make a lively contest for him. Monday was moving day for F. S. Dingley, who will occupy Mrs. E. L Cooke's house the coming year. Mrs. Cooke goes to New York City early in September with her daughter Bertha, who will attend school at the Pratt institute. This leaves her home in good hands, and the rooms over Goeders' store are vacant. The institute closed Friday after two weeks of very effective work. It seems to be the general verdict of the teachers that they have never attended a more instructive and beneficial session. The examinations were held Monday and yesterday, and until the results are known we presume a look of anxiety will shadow the brows of ourfair school- mams. We learn on good authority that J. J. Ryan is tolerably certain to be the democratic candidate for congress if he will take it. We are for him till he is nominated. He will be a pleasant candidate to oppose, and will bear the defeat that he will get with good grace. But seriously Bro. Ryan is as good a man as the democrats have in the district to put up for the place. Bert Edmonds came in from Sioux City, Friday, bringing four very handsome gold medals" with diamond settings, which were exhibited in Bowyers window. He rode a bicycle in the races made by the firm he is treasurer of, and broke the records, as the full report republished from the Journal elsewhere shows. Bert is recognized as one of the fastest amateurs there is. 9 Our readers' attention will be attracted to Durdall & Co.'s opening announcement. Their new stock is arriving and Mr. Durdall is here arranging for Saturday's display. He will make his home in Algona and move his family here as soon as he can got settled. He is an active and enterprising young man and will be welcomed to Algona in this year of our boom. Everybody keep an eye on the new store. formers were all strictly first class, mostly well-known Chicago musicians. The Spirit Lake people are planning to make their resort one that Iowa will hot be ashamed of, and in a few years will have as good talent for their summer meetings as can be met anywhere. Their concerts this year will give them excellent advertising. LAYING A COllNJEft STONE, This Ceremony Was Performed for the Catholics Last Thursday by Dean Carolon, Mr. Haley of Minneapolis, who is to superintend the building of the new opera house, arrived Monday and is pushing the work. One of the most important parts is getting in the foundation and the supports of the lower floor. As it is all built on a slant and on a circle it requires great skill to get the timbers properly placed. Mr. Haley is an old architect and is thoroughly experienced in this kind of work. Senator Funk hits the nail when he says Col. Cooke will be the best looking man on the governor's staff. His item in the Beacon is: We observe that Capt. Thos. F. Cooke of Algona has been appointed general inspector of small arms practice for the state, with the rank of colonel. He will look well to the duties of the position and upon state occasions he will be pronounced the finest looking man on the governor's stall. We salute you, Colonel. One of the pleasantest social events of the season was an outdoor dancing party given on the lawn at Lewis H. Smith's home Friday evening, H. E. Rist and B. W. Haggard being chiefly instrumental in making the arrangements. The lawn was lighted with Chinese lanterns and the music and dancers united in making a very beautiful scene. A large company was present, and enjoyed themselves as only young people do on such occasions. The delegates to the democratic state convention started for Davenport yesterday. The were mostly young men, among them Ike Finnell, Chas. Cohenour, J. W. Sullivan, and J. G. Graham. They took the Burlington at Goldfield, and changed again at West Liberty. We hope to be able to chronicle their safe return and notflnd them straggling along as they did after the Chicago convention. Bro. Hinchon profited by his experience then and will not visit Humboldt again this season for "delinquent subscribers." Kossuth's polling booths will be shipped Oct. 1. They were bought of Carter & Hussey, and are of steel. There are 29 main booths, costing §7.50 each, one for each polling place. Then there are 35 annexes, costing ?6.50, and 29 steel ballot boxes, rails, etc., costing $5 each. They will be set up over the county as soon as they arrive and then each man can retire to the privacy of one of them and mark the names on the blanket tickets given him and vote unseen by anybody. The reception given by the alumni of the normal school last Wednesday evening was a great success. The teachers came in numbers and the citizens were present to note the fine improvements that have been made in the normal building. The new desks, new paper, new paint, and all around newness in general seemed to make a new building of it, and certain it is that few new buildings are any finer. Refreshments were served, and the band entertained the people with music. The Congregational church was crowded Thursday evening for Eugene Schaffter's lecture on German university life, and the comment is general that no more instructive DSMOOBATS IN OOHVENTION. J. J. Jlyan to be Pushed for Congress —Delegates Chosen. The democratic county convention met Wednesday to select delegates to the state and congressional conventions and a good representation of the county was present. Nothing occurred of note except it be the evident desire to dispose of the old wheel horses of the party. THE UPPER DES MOINES of- ferred a compromise between the new and old blood in Bro. Hinchon, who seemed to belong to both sides, but such half-way measures were cast aside, and our friend from Webster, J. J. Ryan, got all the honors. He is off as chairman of the state delegation, and represents Mr. Taylor on the state central committee at the Davenport meeting. It is understood also that he will be pushed for the congressional nomination in this district. Bro. Ryan is a smooth politician and we are not sure but he is entitled to the honors now more than our contemporary, especially since the latter has been publishing articles making sport of the old timers. We are bound to say that it is bad politics and rank ingratitude to ridicule the services of the men who for years kept the democracy active up hero by writing out pen and ink tickets. The delegates chosen were, for the state convention: J. J. Ryan, chairman; I. M. Finnell, C. A. Cohenour, J. W. Sullivan, Perry McDonald, Philip Dorweiler, B. Meyers, Geo. Carter, H. Klint, W. P. Giddings, Sam. Zeikert, MickScholte, J. G. Graham, P. J. Byrne, Nate Studer, J. Hubor. For the congressional convention: J. J. Wilson, chairman; Jas. Taylor, H. C. McCoy, Max Herbst, Harvey Graham, Ed. Seymour, C. L. Lund, W. A. Patterson, Will Dimler, J. W. Hinchon, F. A. Kenyon, G. W. Skinner, H. H. McChane, Joe Hofius, Peter Marti, Jas. Stewart.

Bishop Honnessy did not attend the ceremony of laying the corner stone of St. Cecilia's church, as it is to be called, last Thursday, but will defer his visit until the dedication. Dean Carolon of Mason City officiated in his place, and before a large audience put the stone in place. It is a piece of Indiana marble, cut in Algona and contained an hermetically sealed box of papers and documents of the times, among them a copy of THE UPPER DES MOINES. Father Schmmel of Bancroft delivered the address. The Catholics present from abroad were the Very Rev. Dean Me- Graw of Charles City, Very Rev. Dean Carolon of Mason City, Fathers McMahon of Garner, Garland of Eagle Grove, McNermy of Livermore, Anler of St. Jo., Ertman of Prairie, Schemmel of Bancroft. Hughes of Blue Earth City, Smith of Emmetsburg, Kelley of Estherville, Carroll of Ruthven, McCauley of Emmetsburg, Fitspatrick of the Washington, D. C., Catholic college, and Mr. Hughes of the Montreal Grand seminary. Father Smith of Emmetsburg, an old-time pastor of the Algona charge, celebrated high mass before the stone laying began, and then the audience whiohi filled the old church repaired to the southeast corner of the now building, where the ceremony was performed. The stone contains for the edification of future generations the names of the pope, bishop and resident pastor, the president of the United States, governor of Iowa, mn.yor of Algona, all coins of 1892, copies of THE UPPER DES MOINES and Courier and several standard Catholic papers, names of the priests attending, and names of all the former priests officiating at Algona. The laying_ of this stone is an _ important event with our local Catholic society. It was many years ago that Father Linehan of Fort Dodge built the old church which, with additions, has served until now. The society was weak and, until Father McCaffrey, could not maintain a resident priest. It is now strong in numbers and is building a church that is a credit to Algona. The dedication will come in the early winter, nearing the completion of the largest church building in this county. HOSIER Y, Commencing Saturday, Aug. 20, '92. StglpDomestic and Imported.

He gave a modest and detailed account of those things every- bodv was interested in, and in a manner to hold the closest attention. The only complaint was that his talk was too brief. Mr. Schaffter is a young man whose literary attainments are a credit to Eagle Grove and to northern Iowa.

I have no hesitancy in recommending Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera, and Diar- rhoea Remedy to the public, as I do to my friends and patrons, I used it myself after other well-known remedies had failed, and it cured me in a few minutes. I recommend it candidly and cheerfully upon its merits, pot from a financial standpoint, because I have others in stock on which I make a larger profit, but because Chamberlain's is the best remedy I know of for bowel complaints, There is no doubt about it; it does the work.—James Forgy, druggist, McVeytown, Pa.
