Platt'a information. A joint debate will be held in Algona between Attorney General Stone and «v-.,,ccu ^.uuurney general stone and his competitor, Mr. Willard. Mr. Stone The circus is in town. Cummins Friday night. • A co id wave passed yesterday, but BO frost. . The Grange store is offering carpets cheap. The republican county convention comes Friday. Peter Winkel has a word about oysters this week. Bead Winkle's new stove advertisement this week. Henry Hardcopf and Lena Schwartz are licensed to wed. The attendance at the Al <ona schools is a few less than 500 pupils. This term begins with 60 more than it did a year ago. The race "Eva T" was in at Mason City was not called on account of the rain. She is at Forest City this week in the free-for-all. Prof. Gilchrist promises to write up his experiences at the Sioux City school for the benefit of his Algona friends, at an early date. W. B. Quarton went to Webster City last Thursday and had Button, who was under arrest there, released. There was no evidence to hold him. Joel Taylor shipped apples last week from the Ingham farm to Spirit Lake at a good figure. Several barrels were sent to Rolfe last week also. The Catholic ladies will serve dinner Thursday and Friday of next week on the fair grounds. That means that all who come will get a good square meal. J. J. Ryan opens his canvass for congress at Carroll tomorrow. Ho and Gov. Boies speak together. It is reported that he will speak several times in Kossuth. Regular meeting of the W. C. T. U. and Reading Room association will be held in the reading room on Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock. A full attendance is desired. The county Sunday school meeting at Buffalo Forks was a big success last Sunday. Those who went from Algona are loud in their praise of the handsome church there. Glen Brunson did not return to Independence to work in the asylum but has gone to Minneapolis and has a job as street car conductor. He likes that better than tending the insane. H. W. Walston is planning to move into town for the winter, and will refit his old home and remain in Algona. His son Lee has been over from Mitchell county helping him on the farm for awhile. Mr. and Mrs. Will Spencer's many Algona friends will be pleased to learn of the addition of a healthy boy to then- home, now some three weeks old.« Mrs. Spencer's health is excellent, and the baby's likewise. Geo. E. Clarke and W. B. Quarton went to Humboldt Monday, where they argued a demurrer in an important land case between W. H. Nycum and Gov. Larrabee involving the title of a farm up on the Buifalo. Those who thought Phil. Hanna's shoulder straps were ornamental solely will enjoy reading the account of his recent doings in Venezuela. Pnil. don't believe in having an American eagle without letting it scream occasionally, Our new photographer is the first of the members of the mutual marriage association to get a benefit. He joined a few weeks ago, and the other ten have $10 apiece to pay to him on nis wedding day. The question is who will be next? E, P, Bircher's two-year-old pacer went in the Mason City races last week and found himself in a 2:30 race. He kept up all right on the first quarter. Letters remaining uncalled for in the Algona postofflce for the week ending Sept. 10: H. B. Reed, Alpheus Lambert, Chas. Perkins. G. C. Bennett, Miss Ida Day, Prof. S. F. Derrie and wife, Mrs. Edward Densen, L. M. Furry, Mrs. Attley House, Edward Hochstetler, Miss Annie Ziemer. The insane man caught last week was tried and found to be the craziest one ever before the commission. He was held till word Was received from Illinois, where he lives, but they refused to take him, and so Mr. Mclnroe went to Independence with him. Illinois will have the bills to pay just the same. Capt. Edens has a very handsome gold medal which he won for making the best rifle score at Sioux City. Its first cost was $25 and it is very fine. He owns it and does not have to put it up at any future contest. He not only got the best score, but lost four points at that by shooting once at the wrong target. Owing to the decision of the state committees political speakers will not be sent to the county fairs, and so no addresses will be made next week, as was hoped. This perhaps won't detract so much from the entertainment, however, as might bo expected. We shall get enough of political speeches as it is. Murray Russell brought up a bright little darkey from Mississippi to Huin- boldt, and last week he came up with the boating party to take the team home. He and Link Singleton got together and discussed the situation while in town. They didn't think the p_ros- pects for the colored people very bright in this section. Secretary Sessions informs us that through oversight the offer of silver cups for sweepstake prizes on horses, cattle and hogs was omitted from the premium list. These cups will be awarded, however, and will be well worth securing. The premium list this year presents the best oilers ever made by the society. In forming the team to represent Iowa at the inter-state rifle contest 15 men are taken from each of the four regiments. From these 60 half are taken to Chicago and from the 30 ten are chosen at the last minute. Company F will have three at least on the first pick, Edens, Walsh and Witlmm. All three can get on the state team by practice. A telegram came to D. H. Hutchins Saturday announcing the very serious illness of his daughter in California. He started Saturday evening to Sioux City, where Mrs. A. F. Call expected to join him in the trip west. It is not known what the prospects are for recovery, but many old friends in Algona will liope that she may soon be well again. The state weather report for the past weeks says: "Corn has made slow progress toward maturity, but is doing fairly well, and the bulk of it will be safe by the 25th if there is no frost. Kept up all right on une nrsb nuuai^ M but failed to hold out. He paced in as good as 2:40 and is considered a likely two-year-old. August Bremen has bought a half interest in Chris. Heise's barber shop and will come Algona to make ms home. Ho was a popular boy m town while he lived here, and he has had- a fine position in St. Paul. His old friends will be glad to see hint back. The silver cups won at Sioux City In the rifle contest are exhibited at BO\V-- yer's. They are Very expensive, standing about 14 high and being heautlfully designed and engraved. The boys have to win one of them twioe to keep it and the other three times. Street Commissioner Sum. Stebbitts has been confined to his house for the past few days with some malady wmcn is not likely to produce serious results. ht The soil is now in excellent condition, and a very greatly increased acreage of winter wheat is being planted. Pastures and late potatoes have been much Improved." The annual Methodist conference meets this year at Cherokee on the 28th and the distribution of preachers for the coming year will then be made. In Algona all will unite in hoping to see Rev. Flanigan come back. He has during his ministry made many friends and it is current comment that no more successful or popular pastor has filled the pulpit in Algona. An important town lot trade was made Monday. T. H. Lantry sold the half block that Hamilton's lumber yard is on to E. S. Salisbury, the consideration in the deed being $3,500. This la a valuable property and brought a good price The rise in values lets Mr. Lantry out of his big loss by fire, although he has been out of the use of his money meantime. News comes that Guy Grove was married last Friday at Albion, near Mar- shulltown, to Miss Mahala Wheeler, a vouncr lady whose acquaintance he made In connection with Christian endeavor worlc at a state convention. She is said to be a very attractive young lady. Guy is one of Algona's best young men and good wishes Will meet the happy couple on their return. One of the best political meetings of the campaign will be Friday evening. 'A B> Cummins of Des Moines, candidate for elector-at-large, will speak. He is one of Iowa's smoothest orators, a Btrong lawyer, and a man whose place in Iowa politics has made him an interesting figure. Those who miss hearing him will miss hearing, a man who makes an art of public speaking. While coming in from Canton Satur- day morning th^mmua^ys^got^o - - •• Regiment arranged, as everyone in the county is curious to knew which our prize trotter is. In honor of the success of Company F the band got out Saturday and met them at the depot and escorted them to the armory. They Inarched with proud and defiant tread, all eyes fixed on tho silver cups which were borne in front in the style of Roman eagles in the days of Csesar. The boys had reason to feel proud, for while they expected to get a prize they didn't expect to get everything that was put up. A Humboldt party consisting of D. F* Coyle, Murray Russell, Mr. Ray, and a fourth *drove up to Algona Saturday, bringing a canvas boat which they launched in the river for the return trip. They planned to spend two days in floating down the placid Des Moines, camping along the way. They took a good look at Algona's improvements, which put them In that bouyant frame of mind so well suited to a romatlc trip, and started out with colors flying. We hope to hear soon that they arrived safely. The case tried at Ledyard last week where a young man named Leephead was tried for carrying concealed weapons will come up in district court this month. The facts are that Leephead had had a key made to the room he was occupying, and refused to give it up when he left. The owner of the room took the key away and in so doing used Leephead rather roughly. Leephead went and got his revolver and shot it off outdoors, using some threatening language. He is held for carrying concealed weapons. After all our endorsement of Thompson of Bancroft for county attorney, the only word we can get from there is that the democrats will not nominate any candidate for county attorney at all, but will leave that open as trading stock. We understand that bets have been made that this plan will win. We can tell our northern neighbors that it won't. They can rub it into the wheel horses with kinder-garten delegations, but with two likely candidates In Algona they can never leave a vacancy for county attorney on the ticket. Thompson's friends should move and move quick. A marriage occurs this evening at Cedar Falls, which will interest all readers of THE UPPER DES MOINES. The parties are J. W. Robinson, our popular hardware merchant, and Mrs. Lora M. Coombes, widow of Prof. Coombes, once principal of our public schools. No Intimation of this happy event has leaked out until the _cards were issued, and we doubt not this announcement will surprise many of our readers. Mrs. Combes is a very attractive woman, with many friends in Algona, and in Mr. Robinson she secures for a-life partner one of nature's noblemen. The newly wedded pair go at once to Washington and then to eastern points before returning. Kossuth will send a goodly delegation to Washington for the national grand army meeting. They leave Friday morning for Mason City, and those rumored to go are Dr. and Mrs. Sheetz, Dr. and Mrs. Barr, Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Tennant, Mr. and Mrs. P. L. Slagle, Dr. McCoy, J. W. Robinson, E. Tellier, H. Schenck, J. H. Grover, Lem Stockwell, R. F. Hedrick, H. Brewster, Billy Ward, John Reed, and Mr. McChesney. Others whose names we have not learned will doubtless join. Mr. Robinson is on the commander's staff and will have official duties in connection with the parade, which, it is expected, will be the biggest ever held by the veterans, and the biggest seen on Pennsylvania avenue since the war. This meeting will be the crowning event in grand army annals. GOT EVERYTHING IN SIGHT Onr Company F Team Did Great Shooting at the Sioiu City Encampment Last Week.

Algona's great success in the Sioux City rifle contest was reported by the Journal in the following complimentary style In Wednesday's dally: "Perhaps the greatest event of yesterday in Camp Rice was the rifle competition. The shooting was done at the Crescent park range; but litle else was talked of about the camp, either before or after the result was known. " Company F took all the prizes, the team excelling in the aggregate score, thus taking the regimental trophy giv- to the regiment last year by Company H; it also captured the magnificent cup offered by Will. H. Beck for the best team score at 500 yards, and Capt. Edens made the best individual score, thus carrying off the gold medal of- ered by The Journal. In the individual score Capt. Edens beat Lieut. McGibbons of Company H by just one point. "Col. Cooke, general inspector of small arms practice, superintended the work and gave instructions. Capt. Hoffman of Company C acted as statistical officer, and Capt. King of Company G as range officer. The shooting was poor, comparatively, and all the men save those of the victorious team were feeling blue last night. There was a strong fishtail wind, and many of the newer men were the victims of nervousness. Many were busy last night telling how it happened." Company F's team was composed of H. J. Edens, W. E. Ward, M. J. Walsh, L. K. Shadle, and Chas. Wlth- am. At 200 yards the boys made in their order 19, 12, 19, 10, 13. At 300 yards they made 18, 9, 18, 15, 18. Their totals were Edens, 60; Ward, 40; Walsh, 58; Shadle, 42; Witham, 51, of a possible 75. TOSSED IN A BLANKET. Much of the fun at the cam]) Is rough, the Journal says, but it is generally harmless. Wednesday night, however, an incident occurred which had more of excitement than innocence in it, although it was enjoyed by a majority of those who saw it. Saft, the restaurant keeper at the park, who by virtue of his privilege from the park company is the only sut- ler in camp, has incurred the enmity of the boys, and Wednesday night about 200 of them started out to toss him in a blanket. A man in citizen's clothing called him out, and when the caterer appeared he was seized by lusty arms and dumped into the blanket and tossed unmercifully. His glasses, it is said, were lost in the branches of a tree. The restaurant keeper was both furious and scared. His wife interceded for him and his brother came out with a revolver and threatened to shoot. The officer of the day, just as things were becoming more serious than funny, interposed, and with drawn sword stood between the revolver and more than 100 young men, some of whom were thoroughly angry. The motive for this act may be gathered from the shouts of the boys while the unhappy man was being pitched into the air. At each bound there was a chorus of "You will charge 15 cents for a sandwich!" " You will sell ice water for 10 cents a glass, will you!" "Here is one for charging that lady 60 cents for a gallon of hot water!" etc. In the excitement and rush of the crowd two showcases and a wiridow were smashed. There may be work for Maj. Cleland before the last is heard of this raid. COMPANY F ENTERTAINED. The Journal of Friday says that on Wednesday night A. F. Call, who was formerly a citizen of Algona, gave a reception to the members of Company F at his home. Just received 150 samples of the very latest styles in Carpeting.
