The annual meeting for the election of trustees of the Northern Iowa Normal school will be held at the county clerk's office on Friday evening. All subscribers should be present. Rev. Sherman Lumbar is at 'home on a visit from western New York, and will preach Sunday at the Baptist or Congregational church, the arrangements not yet being completed. There is some talk of making an exhibit of butter from Kossuth county at the state fair. If all the creameries would put in a tub nicely branded it would be a big card for the county. Seymour Allen, who was stabbed by Hubhard a week ago, is about well. The trial of his assailants will come next week, when they will probably be bound over to meet the grand jury in October. The Algona hall club played at Bancroft last week and took its usual defeat. The boys stayed for the bowery dance, but whether they could trip the toe any better than they play ball is not reported.

Hays on the Republican. We have vondorecl before that Jake hns not tnk- n charge of the paper, and this change vill not be unexpected to any of his ne- [ualntances. In coming from DCS Moincs Saturday r. B. Jones says he didn't see a piece of corn in tassel. The corn in Kossuth is ully up with any ho saw, and ho says ,ho reports show a poorer prospect in ,ho southern part of the state than in ,hc northern. The now Gorman Methodist church n Fonton was dedicated Sunday, It is said to be a fine church building, and las a strong support. Rev. Wessel of 3urt acts as pastor.

Chrischilles of Fenton ornamented our office with a corn stalk from his ield last week, and it has attracted at- .eution ever since.

Place of Waterloo arrived last night to give the boys instruction. They pay him $50 for one month, and will keep him as much onger as necessary. The members lave bought their own instruments and ntend to give the town a first-class mnd. They deserve encouraging.

Matson attending to his business in his absence. The past week he has answered 27 otters for privileges at the fair, and in all over 100. The fair this year will .-un day and night, and be by far the .argest and most attractive exhibition :ver given in Iowa. While at Des Moines last winter Miss Amy Wallace_ took a course in Delsarte and calisthenics, and has a class organized which she is teaching hero. She is very proficient, and expects to jo to Chicago this winter to complete her course. Athletics are very popular for young ladies, and her class opens a good opportunity for all to acquire grace and develop muscle. Two old timers came in the Hull military. One was the captain, Chas. Da.vidson, now commander of the grand army of the state, and a well-known land man of earlier times. The other was Jack Henry of Whittemore fame. He was Whittemore's pioneer station agent, ran a Whittemore paper, and was >an all-around rustler. He hasn't changed in the least, and is second lieutenant of the Hull company. Many friends greeted both men in Algona. The juvenile temple, organized by Mrs. -Lloyd, held its first meeting last Sabbath, with the following officers in charge: C. T., Gertie Parish; V.

The meeting of the county farmers alliance was held at the court house Saturday. A picnic was arranged for to be hold about Sept. 1, and to be attended by the state lecturer. Aside from this nothing was done except to elect a county organizer., and Andrew Casslei was chosen. In 'Conversation with various members of the alliance differ ent opinions were expressed about its probable political activity in the coun tythis fall. Some thought a ticket would be put in and some thought not The mile running race last week was the exciting event of the races. It was confidently expected that Kossutl would take the money but "The Moor proved a winner in spite of public senti mont, and big odde on the loca horse. Opinion is divided as to Kos suth's merits, some believing that he was in poor condition, and others tha' he is not a swift horse. He was cor tainly too fleshy, has run 'in hut few races, and has had too little -work. He made a;good second but was outrun in the raca He runs in Eagle Grove to day. The teams and scrapers are rapidly utting a hole in the Blackford hill, nd Thos. Henderson is as rapidly get- ing new oak piling under the bridge. Vhile the scrapers are reducing the levation of the road, he is preparing o add two feet to the elevation of the •ridge, and between the two a big hange is promised to all comers from ho west. Surveyor Hutchins laid out he work, and it calls for a radical im- irovement. We believe all complaint bout this hill will cease whon the work s done. It will take six weeks to finish Jie grading. It is often asked what's in a name, n the case of the winnerof the freo-for- 11 last Wednesday there is $150 in the mne. Tho winner trotted as •'Dandy,'' nd a telegram from Chicago cnmo pro- esting against allowing him to take he money, because his name is "Dandy hn" with a record of 2:1!)}. Tho purse vas accordingly forwarded to the Cni- ago head of of the trotting association, nd if the horse is not " Dandy" by ight the money will go to the other lorses. No horse can go in a race un- "cr any but. his recorded name and take purse if there is any protest. H. W. Burrcss, who started tho races lore, is engaged at Mason City. Ho s a good starter, keeps cool, and makes ho horsemen como to time. Last snm- ner ho fined Bui-gilt $100 at Clear Lake nd John drove like a dcacon'hero. In ho running race hero ono rider got 'sassy" and Burress called him up and uggcstcd that ho pay $50 or take otT iis hat and apologize. The boy was irofuso in apologies and helped all ho ould to get. a fair start. Mr. Burrcss lever linos less than SoO, and under tho esociation rules, until a fine is paid, tho river or rider cannot go on any track n tho United States.

Hollen of tho Webster City tribune went through to Spirit Lake ast week, and writes to his paper: ' Crops in Wright, Humboldt, and Kps- uth counties do not compare with hose in Hamilton county nor in this oction. In those counties corn was lot over a foot high when wo came hrough thorn, while hero it is all laid iy and as high as one's waist. A great .oal of wheat and barley are raised lore, and there will bo a magnificent rop this year." Bro. Hcllen couldn't lave looked out more than oncoin Kosuth. Judge Cook, also of Webster Jity, says the corn looks as well hero is in any county in which ho has boon n Iowa. Marshal Dailey did not got to go to Webster City for encampment. Just as 10 got his bugle well polished and his ip in shape to blow a blast like Roland it Roncevalles, he got word from tho Aurora company to get tho pump out if the city well and be ready for their digging machine. Accordingly while he other buglers have been on dross mi-iido in Rosencranz park, he has been n the bottom of tho well assisting in elevating tho most important part of vaterworks. Tho well digger is ex- jected to arrive today and the work of leepening the well will begin at once. The city will put it down till water is jecurod or it is decided that there is 10 water in the ground.
