Money always on hand to loan at reasonable rates to parties furnishing first-class security. Some newsy Whittemore items pear this week. The Galbraith shoe sale is still going on at cut rates. C. M. t)oxsee is having his barn rebuilt and enlarged. Mrs. Lee, wife of the renter of the Durant farm, died Friday morning. The dance for Seymour Allen's benefit was well attended Friday evening. A. M. and G. M. Johnson are kept busy sending out machinery these days. The Mason City races are in progress this weelj, and reduced rates are given to all Visitors. The Haggard farm in Sherman town- was sold last week, the half section bringing 58,000. J. W. Robinson's hardwire store is being cleaned up and repainted while he is off to the encampment. There is an actual binding machine famine. Telegrams como in for machines from all over the country. Too much politics is bad for the county. Last week for the first time lately no marriage licenses were issued. Earl Tennant is over at Rolfe attending the races, and has John Patterson's marc entered in the three year old clnss. Galbraith's clearing sale now takes in a large line 1 of dry goods, which are going cheap. Read his advertisement this week. All young people who think of going to college this fall should read the advertisement of the state university in this issue. It is rumored that a prize fight occurred at Emmetsburg last night for $500 a side. Several went over from here to see it. The Wigwam has its second car load of J. I. Case threshing machines, and they are going. The grain yield this year will be enormous. Some resolutions are handed us on the matter of wine at the banquet for the veterans at Detroit, but lack of space prevents publication. The ladies of the M. E. church will serve ice cream and cake, Thursday evening from 0 to 10 o'clock, at the Spear store building. All are invited. C. W. Parker is re-elected to act as janitor of the school house for the ensuing year. He held the position until last year when M. •• B. Dalton was chosen. ' , J. E. Beattie's Whittemore store offers some bargains this week, and makes them public through our advertising columns. For cheap prices consult Mr. Beattie's list. The foundation is in for an upright to the home of D. H. Setchell in the south part of town. A good addition is being made and will add to the appearance as well as comfort of his home. The Mason City cornet band furnishes music for the Spirit Lake excursion Sunday, and the odd fellows have a basket picnic. Everybody can see Iowa's great resort for $1.40 round trip. Frank Dingley coasted down a hill Monday on his bicycle and at the bottom came to one of our bridges which sits about six inches above the road. He has sent his bicycle in for repairs. The teachers' institute closed with examinations yesterday. Nearly all the teachers took the ordeal, but no ro- tary of the W. C. T. U., .at Algona. The prizes will be awarded the afternoon of the second day of the Kossuth county fair. C. L. Lund is making very extensive improvements on his farm, entirely re- modelling and re-fitting the house before moving into it. He is adding a sizable wing, putting in new Windows, and otherwise changing it. It will be well worth a drive to his place to see it when the carpenters and painters are done. Chris. Heise tried this year the experiment of raising some German prunes. He had the pits sent over from the old country and planted them carefully, but they did not grow. Ho says he shall get some more and try and raise a prune true. The prune is very much like the plum, and ought to grow here. Wallace's cifcus is the one which had the balloon ascension a couple of years ago. The man who dropped with his parachute so successfully here was drowned a little later in the Ohio river. The circus is better than over, if the advance man is reliable, and will give Algona a fine show. Road the advertisement in this issue. We give this week another most able discussion of farm matters by one who has had experience, and produces figures from the results on Kossuth county farms. Mr. Hutchins' facts and figures are worth more than whole pages of theorizing by non-resident professional farm writers. Every farmer should read his article on tame grasses. A queer ease was tried before Justice Peter J. Walker last week by W. B. Quarton and 13. H. Clarke. Two boys were charged with going to the Mittag farm and turning the horses into a shed with a lot of brood sows, the result being the loss of six litters of pigs. Justice Walker took three days to consider the case, and then found for the defendants. The teachers were disappointed in their lecture Friday evening as Dr. Davidson was sick and unable to bo present. A social took the place at the court house, and short speeches wore made by Prof. B reckon ridge, B. F. Reed and others, while music and recitations fiilled out the iirogramme. _A pleasant evening was enjoyed in spite of the disappointment. A number of petty burglaries were perpetrated last Wednesday evening, and Ladendorf's restaurant, Edons' butcher shop, Winkel's butcher shop, and Alderman's billiard hall were entered. Some cigars and three or four dollars in money was about all that was taken. No clue is had of the burglars, but probably tramps passing through are responsible for the thefts. Now that Bro. Starr has retired from active newspaper work, he shows his appreciation of THE UPPER Diis MOINES by putting up his $1.50 fpr it for the corning year. THE UPPER DsS MOINES has enjoyed giving Bro.

Miss Susie Gilbert did not accept the position tendered her in the public schools, and Monday the board elected Miss Hattie Chesley of Blue Earth, Minn. Miss Chesley has taught in the county here and is well known as an efficient instructor. A big gathering of shooters was at Clear Lake last week. Axel. Sandstrom of Bancroft made third best average in the two days, Grimm first, and Budd second. S. S. Sessions assisted Charlie Grimm in arranging and managing the shoot. For some years a couple of pecan trees have grown successfully in W. H. Ingham's yard, and the prospect is that they will live to have a crop of nuts. They are as thrifty as the shell-bark hicories they stand by, and Beem to flourish in our climate. Kossuth county land is assessed amongst the lowest of the counties of the state, $4.11 an acre. Hancock is $5.13, Humboldt, $5.75, Palo Alto, $5, Emmet, $3.88, and Clay, $3.96. The highest county in the state is Polk which is assessed at $15.58 an acre. The report was out Monday evening that one of our prominent bicyclists was lost in the prairie between town and Burt, and a search party went out for him. It is difficult to tell who the joke is on. He says he was in town all the time, and they intimate that he wasn't. The funeral of Mrs, Elmer Slagle was held at the Methodist church, Thursday, and a large gathering of mourners was present. Elmer goes today to begin work agajin on his mail run, leaving his two children with their grandTparents, where their home will be hereafter. W. W.

The funeral exorcises of Miss Jessie Hill, grand daughter of Dr..

While pitching hay near West Bone Frank Potter strained himself a week ago, and the result has nearly provec fatal. A rupture was caused withou' his knowing it, and the intestines wer< displaced causing serious complications For some time his life was despaired of but now it is expected that he will pul through. Frank's many friends in Al gona and the county will be sorry fr hear of his misfortune and will hope t see him up again soon. Work is progressing on the city well The expert, who is superintending thinks there is no doubt about a plenti ful supply of water where the othe diggers have predicted, and will soon ^ have a screen in to test it. He is putting an eight inch pipe in the bottom of the present well. This will go down through the layer of hard pan and there the open pipe with sand screen will be attached. If one of these pipes is not sufficient two will be put down. It is expected that an unfailing stream will result. The Milwaukee road has arranged for a cheap excursion to Spirit Lake, Sunday. A special train will leave Charles City passing through Algona at 8:03 a. m., and arriving at the lake at 10:35 u, m. The train will leave the lake at 0:30 p. m., and arrive at Algona at 9:02 p. m.

The train leaves Wesle.y at 7:40 a. m.., fare $1:00, and Whittemore at 8:22 a, m., fare $1.20. J. B. Jones corrected a misstatement in the Register last week and wrote: "The statement in Friday's Register to the effect that the hoof and mouth disease is prevalent in north western Iowa, is an error. We have talked with Dr. Sayers, department state veterinarian, who has recently been all over northwestern Iowa in a professional way, and he says no such disease exists in any part of the state. If this disease exists in any part of tho state, radical measures should be adopted to stamp it out; but this does not apply to northwestern Iowa." Mike Thilges, Harry Shroedor, and another St. Jo, citizen were in Algona Monday to agree upon a policy in the case brought for cutting down the cemetery fence at St. Jo. Our readers will remember the circumstance, which occurred a year ago or more. The priest there moved the cemetery and built the fence against tho wishes oi the church. In the night it was cul down, and last week a detective arrested Schroeder and he was bound over to meet the grand jury. Schroeder de- dap night for northern Wisconsin for a fow wp.oks' lavolT.
