Dailey went to the state fair Friday to act as policemen. Chris. Heise'soldtimo barber, August, is down from St. Paul for a week's visit. He now operates in the Ryan house ,shop. H.. J. Gilbert was in Bancroft a week Ago selling a load of apples from .his orchard. The apple crop is very large over the county. A son of Mr. Bliss of Bancroft dipped .atJIBurt last Thursday and dislocated his hip. It is a serious case and Dr. Mor*e is attending it. The patrons of the Lotts Creek creamery are feeling, pretty good or«r their July returns. They got 87 cents a. hundred for their milk. Work on the various new buildings is progressing. The carpenters have; begun on ttie Baptist church, and the Catholic church is enclosed. Miss Lolla Randall will teach the same school this fall she taught this summer, in the Wm. Shanor district. Her school begins Monday, Sept. 5. The public schools open Monday. Prof. Dixson gives notice that he desires ail the teachers to meet him in the office at 4 o'clock sharp next Saturday. It is rumored that a gambling room with beer bottle accessories is being run in the original package building on State street. If so why is no complaint made to the authorities? Marriage licenses have been issued to Geo. P. Kuhn and Anna Power, Levi Johnson and Sarah T. Larson, J. A. Underwood and C. M. Bingham, M. H. Stoddard and Emma R. Wolcott. < The annual meeting of the W. C. T. U, for the election of officers will be held in the reading room on Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock. Every member should make a point of being present.! Everybody should remember the j young people's fine entertainment tomorrow evening. The admission will t be 25 and 15 cents, and the programme is one of the best ever offered in Algona. A large party gathered at Aug. Zahl- ton's fine grounds north of town last Thursday evening and enjoyed a social vjsit. Mr. Zahltbn's is one of the earliest places taken on the river, and a very beautiful spot. A union temperance meeting will be held at the Congregational church Sunday evening addressed by Prof. Andrews, who represents the state temperance alliance. The speech will be non-political. The date of the county convention was changed a week after the call was written, but the date for holding caucuses was not changed and was published as Sept, 8 when it should have been Sept. 15, Caucuses not yetcalled should be on the 15th. A telegram was received Monday from Des Moines stating that Uncle S. Benjamin was dangerously sick and asking for assistance. His son Frank started yesterday morning on the early train. He is now better and will get home today or tomorrow. The new town in Ramsay on the new road is named 'Germania, and the sale of lots was held yesterday. Germania « a big name, and the town will have to grow to match it. The lots in all these towns are held at $250—and people are willing to pay the price. From the Bancroft Register we learn that Elwell Davison, who has been sick so long and who was brought home from school at Ames without much expectation of living, is able to be about and is }«>king quite well and hearty. Dr. Uarfleld attended him for some time. "Eva T," the John Patterson trot- te 'i will go on the Mason City track next week Saturday in the races, and « « expected that she will do credit to f'eona. J. W. Tennant offers reasonable inducements to secure a race here « home, offering to back her against anything in the county. Young Mr. Lewis, son of C. R. Lewis W Irvington, has been talking pork packing nouse to some of our citizens "W past week, and it is now likely that «n effort will be made to organize a company, A canvas of the town will 'ade in the matter, and further 1 be given as the scheme developes. „. H' F. Watson recalled a curious cir- ««W8tanoe when he acted as pall bearer «v the funeral of James Henderson. It "fts that ho had acted as pall bearer at c«2A r8t ana last funeral in the Algona cemetery.

He goes largely on account of the excellent ed- ucatlanal advantages afforded his children. !He retains his business interests lauind near Burt ;and will doubtless spend much time there. A' Lu Verne gentleman announces nimseiif as candidate for the democratic nomination for county clerk. If iBan- croft eomes down ;for Thompson for county attorney the two ends of the county will be in shape to pull togoth- ™, ', , at dem °crat of democrats, .John Wittkel, was down Monday, but we forgot to 'interview Wm as to the Thompson movement. An entertainment will be given at the Cong-rogational church Friday evening by ablind lady, Miss VanDuzee. which promises *o be excellent. In addition to songsiand recitations she ex- jlams the methods of instruction of the blind, exhibits the raised letters by which they read, and Me fancy needle ind other woi'k they -are :able to do. Vliss VanDuzeo conies with highest ecomendations and gives an entortuin- ng and instructive evening's pro- gramme. Although there were not many people in town Saturday, the «rowd gath- sred at the opening of the New Eng- and clothing store and viewed the fine stock of new goods Durdall,& Co. have lut in. The show windows were handsomely decorated and the .store fitted n the best city style. In the evening .he band was secured and gave a concert in front to a large crowd. The lew store opens in Algona with excel- 'ent prospects and deserves a, big pat- 'onage. The shooting contest between the members of Company F for the gold medal had resulted in a tie between Sdens, Walsh, and Witham on Monday, each having 127. That represents ,he result of two scores each at 200, !00, and 500 yards, and is better than 20 at each range- It is 127 out of a jossible 150, and is wonderfully good shooting. The boys have till Saturday to settle who shall wear the badge. The card of M. F. Randall appears ;his week and announces his candidacy 'or the recorder's office, subject to the action of the republican convention. tfr. Randall was beaten for the office wo years ago by a very small majority, and largely because his friends felt that his election was certain and did no vork. Should he be nominated again they feel that the result would be reversed. Mr. Randall is an excellent man, would make a competent officer, and if he is nominated will receive a :ordlal support. That new things are not always the jest things is illustrated in Kossuth's experience with jails. The old original jail was built of oak two-by-fours- nailed together, and WHS about 8 feet by 10, and (5 feet high. It stood on the square, and held in its day several of- endors against the dignity of the law, nd none of them escaped. There was no jail breaking from that box. But the county became aristocratic in the matter of jails, and first "Curly's" mrdner in the banking business es- ;aped. Then the iron cages were put n, and then Hawkes got away. And now the last breaking out has occurred. How would it be to revive the old oak jail? Messrs. Thompson, Ridgeway, and Tarley were over from Whittemore, Thursday, to consult Architect Conner about their new brick block which is ,o go up this fall. Seven Whittemore- tes are interested, Messrs. Boyle, Dor- veiler, Sampson, and Wichler in addi- ;ion to the three named. Their build- ng will be 80 by 44 feet, two stories ugh. The second story will be made nto a public hall, while below the )ank will occupy the corner, and Thompson & Dorweiler the store room. They are talking of pressed brick for ;he front, and have the plans for as stylish a building as there is in the jounty. Contracts will soon be let_and jhe work pushed as rapidly as possible. Another sensational lawsuit is on for uhe coming term of court. Our readers will remember the Ellsworth divorce case at Iowa Falls in which Mrs, Ellsworth was able to set aside a divorce her husband had secured while she was in Denver. Col, Clarke acted as her attorney, and the law provides ihat in such cases her husband must jay the attorney's fees. This Ellsworth has refused to do, and the owner of Col. Clarke's claim has attached Ellsworth's lands in Kossuth and brought suit for ?5,000— Judge Hubbard and Geo. E. and E. H. Clarke being the attorneys. If Ellsworth stands suit the whole evidence in the original case will doubtless be gone over to show Col. Clarke's services and their value. A little item about the delay in publishing the fair premium list in our Jast issue, which in ho way reflected on the Wesley Reporter, has stirred up our Wesley neighbor again, and he again insists that in some way we attempted to beat him out of the job and are disappointed. The facts are, as have been stated before, that no effort was made to get the list for the UPPER DES MOINES at the price offered: by the Reporter, and that the UPPER DES MOINES advised the acceptance of the Reporter's bid and also endorsed the Reporter office as able to turn out a ffood job. This latter recommend, we are pleased to note, was not unwarranted for the list is a creditable piece of work and in every way acceptable to the society. Bro. Ford should .get over being so suspicious of his neighbors and bear the annoyances of competition in a more equable spirit. The following paragraph from a letter received from W. & In f hafimh ^: terday will interest trout fishers, "Am in the Cascade mountains on a small lake about two miles long by a mile wide being a with plenty of snow on ton the river water ice cold, flies. For some they make a mistake and soon find themselves in the hoat. Am about 70 miles from Olympia, and have to travel by wagon 22 miles in two places and the balance also in two places by steam boat." A Sensational lawsuit is promised in the coming term of court in which A. Sawvel sues S. A. Thompson, Geo. Clark being his attorney. The facts as stated in the petition revive an old scandal and give sufficient information as to the character of the case. The petition now on file states: On or about Feb. 1. 1892 the defendant was acting as justice of the peace in and for Algona, that oh said date he came to plaintiff in his official capacity and represented that Mrs. Anna Cooper had lodged complaint against the plaintiff for bastardy that plaintiff denied the charge but that the defendant said that Mrs. Cooper had evidence to convict him whether the charge was true or not, and counseled him to settle to save scandal, that he was induced to pay $700 to defendant to use in paying Mrs. Cooper, that defendant paid Mrs. Cooper only $500 and returned the plaintiff $50, keeping $150 wrongfully himself. Wherefore plaintiff asks judgment for $160 with the interest. SUNDAY SOHOOL CONVENTION. Coming Mooting to bo Held at Buffalo ForK—The Programme.

Company F about SO strong will leave Algona on Friday or Saturday of this week for Sioux City and enter camp Saturday for a week. Capt. Edens and Lieutenants Chubb and Cohinour will have command, and the company starts out in excellent shape. Where they will camp and what they will do is told by the Sioux City Journal: ."When the Fourth Regiment, I. N. G., goes into camp at Riverside Park next week it will find itself in the finest camp ground ever placed at the disposal ol an Iowa regiment, and all the arrangements for the comfort and pleasure of the citizen soldiery is complete.. Riverside Park is Sioux City's sole pleasure ground, lying along the Big Sioux river surrounded by high bluffs, and in part filled with fine shade trees. Col. Foster expects to see about 500 members of the Fourth Regiment here, and when the Third Regiment comes there will be a like number. Proposals for the food and other things are being received here and forwarded as received to Des Moines, where Gen. Greene will let the contracts. Companies A and F of the Second United States infantry will come from Fort Omaha to encamp with the guard. Tho commissioned officers of these companies are Capts. Keller and Dempsey, First Lieuts. Van Lew and Wilson, and Second Lieuts. Hines and Marquart. A flag staff 60 feet in height will be erected at Riverside for use during the encampment. For the morning and evening gun and for the governor's salute Gen. Greene will send a Napoleon gun from the arsenal in Des Moines." THE COUNTY FAIR.

Dickson the Forget and Bennett the Horse Thief Get a Good Start—Their Visit to the Penitentiary Postponed. There have been jail deliveries and jail flaliterles, but it remained for Kossuth to announce the escape of two prisoners through stone walls and iron gratings by the aid of a broomstick. J. L. Dickson, brought from Washington two weeks ago by W. B. Quarton for forgery, and Court Bennett, captured shortly before for stealing a pony, departed for parts unknown Saturday night, digging out with no instrument but the broken handle of an old broom in the cell. Their escape was so easy that it probably did not occupy more than fifteen or twenty minutes and may havo been made in the night, giving them all the advantage of a full night's journey before any alarm could be given. They were not shut in the cages at night, as the stone walls of the cell were considered by sheriff Mclnroe to be sufficient against men without tools. But it now appears that When the heating pipes from the furnace were put in a hole was made in the cell wall by one of them, and in filling it up nothing but mortar and a few brick were used. The prisoners discovered this spot and punched out a hole as big as a barrel without removing more than a bucket of material. The wall was a mere sham, and beyo.nd a half dozen brick there was nothing to it. After clambering out into the hallway they had an equally easy time, for the iron gates, instead of being set on mason work, stand on common dirt, and the men soon burrowed under them and were out in the main entrance to the basement free to take any direction they chose. It is scarcely credible that so easy a_n escape should be made from an ordinary building, and only those who visit the jail can understand how quickly they could get out. Had the men been locked in the cages at night, as was undoubtedly the safe thing to do, they could not have escaped, for the cages are now considered proof against everything. They are roomy and not inconvenient. In fact the prisoners slept in them as it was, the doors being open. And Hawkes' escape a few years ago from the general cell was a sufficient warning against taking any chances with such men as this Dickson undoubtedly is. No knowledge of the escape was had till late Sunday morning when the prisoners' breakfast was taken to them. Then Mr. Mclnroe telegraphed Sheriff Graham and sheriffs of neighboring counties and took what steps were possible. Absolutely no clue existed as to the direction taken. The escape is likely to prove expensive to both Messrs. Quarton and Mclnroe, as the payment of their expenses in capturing the two men was made conditional by Gov. Boies in issuing requisition papers upon their conviction. There is a question as to their getting the money if the men are not re-captured. FRESH pies, cakes, tarts, cookies and light biscuit.

The Milwaukee company has been [aying new rails nearWhittemore, and iast week called on the Emmetsburg section men to help them. Among thorn was Peter Adamson, who was seriously injured while lifting a rail down the embankment. The Emmetsburg Reporter tells how it happened: The manner of working was for four men to grapple the rail with two pair of tongs—two men to each pair, and in this instance the man working with Adamson let go of his tongs and the end of the falling rail struck Adamson on the leg stripping the flesh clear to the bone and knocking him down, then the other men had not sufficient presence of mind to lift the rail off his leg but let him lie under the weight until help arrived from a distance. He was then taken to "vThitternoro and the wound was dressed by the company's surgeon. He was brought home on the evening passenger. At this time the leg is in a very painful condition and blood-poisoning is feared. Mr. Adamson is a Dane who came to this country in the early summer, has a family of three or four children and having had some sickness in the family it is safe to say is not particularly fore handed. KEEP HISTOBY STRAIGHT. Bro. Platt Calls Down a Third Party Orator—That Minneapolis Bar. Capt. Brown made a third party prohibition speech at LuVerne last week to eleven auditors. The Review reviews him and says: He paid particular attention to that famous bar in the West house at Minneapolis, which he said is the finest bar in the world, and went on to say that during the national convention men would form in line and wait for hours their turn for their morning eye-opener. This we knew to be an awful fish story, because you see we were there ourself and therefore know that Minneapolis was prepared to administer to the wants of the visiting statesmen without any such delay, and if anyone don't believe it just let him ask Geo. Hanna and Charley Chubb, In short anyone who would stand for several hours waiting for a drink at Minneapolis would be a bigger fool than Thompson's colts and would prove himself a fit. subject to vote the third party ticket. Baptist Servlses. Having closed our term of privileges in the Congregational church, henceforth fora time we shall meet for one service only and that at 11 a. m, in the Swedish Methodist church north of the normal school.
