Alwftjs In stock 8t the the wound is not dangerous. A big 11 pound boy at John Qhron- holm's home arrived Friday. John is in Fairville running the creamery, but is not so busy that he don't have time to feel happy. It is the first baby. In noting the election of a janitor for the school house last week, we omitted to state that M. B. Dalton, who has rendered efficient service the past year, was not an applicant for the place at the wages paid. About the first men the Algona visitors at Emmetsburg met Friday were T. H. Conner and J. M. Cowan. They are putting up a fine building for Chas. McCornmck and his partners, and one that is a credit to the " burg." C. L. Lund took a train load of cattle and hogs to Chicago last week and struck a lucky market.^ He sold his hogs very high, and his cattle at a fancy price. His hogs brought as good a pri.ce as his cattle, which is remarkable. ~At the Rolfe races John Patterson's sorrel mare divided first and second moneys in the three year old class. And G. C. Thomas won in the 2:50 class, getting a mark of 2:47 for his horse. The meeting was a success and was well patronized. O. W. McMurray was down from his work at Forest City over Sunday. He now has a contract for a two-story building for Thompson Bros., and will be busy all the season with that and the school house. Mr. St. Clair of Marshalltown is in town arranging for opening the third bank. They expect to begin business in October and will use the A. D. Clarke & Co. land office building. Mr, St. Clair says the new brick will go up in the spring. Miss Blanche Slade entertained a party of about fifteen of her little girl friends at her pleasant home last evening, it being her birthday celebration. Refreshments were served, and there was no mistaking the fact that it was a happy little crowd. If we were not assured that the young man is growing handsomer and heavier eyery day we should hesitate to note an arrival over two weeks old. The youngster will call Horace Parsons and D. King "grandpa," as soon as he can talk, and is the first born in Phin. King's family. Fred. Butler has secured his canvassing outfit and is visiting the people and taking orders for albums, and a farmers' and a home magazine with which he gives away some handsome pictures. He is well known in the county as a strictly reliable young man, and will do well in the business. The city well is still a matter of speculation. Our new digger went down to where all previous explorers had agreed there was a great bed of water, and found that he was digging in blue clay. This rather disposes of the bed of water theory, and he pulled his tube back to the vein already tapped and will put in hie screen. He has been waiting near- ly a week for a pump to test the flow of water with. The report is out that H. S. Vaughn's oldest boy, Sid., is dead. He had gone from Denver on a hunting excursion with Evangelist Webber into the mountains in California, and while out was taken with typhoid fever. His family heard nothing of his sickness till a telegram announced his death. The Sunday excursion to Spirit Lake was a big success, over 1,600 tickets being sold from all points. It is Said a young man got up the excursion and gave the railway company §450, making the rest himself. If this is so he cleared nearly $2.000. The crowds enjoyed the usual boat ride, picnics, etc. An accident over near Corwith, Sunday, ended in the death of P. P« Johnson, who used to drive wagon for S. I. Plumley in Algona. In scuffling in the wagon he was riding in it seems he foil out and had his neck dislocated. Ho lived a little while but not long. It is said there was a keg of beer in the wagon. Senator Chubb says it is the early bird catches the worm. Ho was still abed when the farm buyers called to see if he and his brother wanted to soil out. They called on Alex. Brown and he offered to sell if they had tho cash to turn right over. It is said they called at several places before they did at Mr. King's. Harry Phillips ia now engaged in tho Independence insane asylum, and -had a very lively experience to begin with. He was . with several patients for tho day's walk, when one broke for tho corn field and got a good start to get away. But Harry ran him half a mile through the corn and secured him after a hot chase. That particular unfortunate now walks with a ball and chain. A little excitement was occasioned Monday morning by the report that Mr. Miller, who works in Brunei- & Slade's barber shop, had fallen from tho excursion train Sunday evening and broken his neck. Just as the story had grown till his remains were being found near Ruthven, he came in from Wesley, having been carried by the night before. He is better than a good many dead men yet awhile. While at the Einmetsburg convention Friday eight Kossuth people hired carriages and drove out to Blairgowrio. The popular manager of that immense estate, Mr. Saunders, drove with the party over some of the fields and showed a few features of the farnij chief of which was 480 acres of flax in an unbroken piece, and as fine in appeara.nce as any ever raised. While not elegant in appearance the buildings on the farm are convenient and are sufficient for the great herds of stock. One pasture of the farm holds live sections of land. Twenty teams are at work all the time, and all the farming operations are conducted on a big scale. The farm has not always been profitable, but under Mr. Saunders' management is being brought to a paying basis, and is the sure foundation of a great fortune for its owner, Mr. Wm. Shaw Adamson of Scotland. The return drive was along the shores of Medium lake, which is a handsome lake in some places. The Webster City Freeman recalls two old timers in this section in an item about the First National bank of that place. The president, Kendall Young, was one of the original founders of Irvington, and L. L. Estes was in the Northern Border brigade. Tho Freeman says: " Twenty years ago, the 10th of this month, the First National bank of Webster City was organized with capital of $50,000. Kendall Young, who was elected president, and L. L. Estes, vice president of the bank at its organization, still occupy these positions, anc from the day it issued its first banknote until the present time, the institution has steadily grown in strength ant the public confidence. Their new building, when thoroughly completed will be one of the finest banking houses in the state,' and under their new extension of charter for another 20 years and an increase of capital to $100,00( and a surplus of $25,000, the solid old First National will be counted amonj the strongest monied institutions in all this region of country." PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. visit from visit- Just to Please the Babies. A highly amusing incident occurred during the performance of Wallace & Anderson's circus at Peru, Indiana, last month. Julius Falk and Dick Chamberlain were in the midst of their serial act. Falk had just left his mountain high pedestal for his double backward somersault in space when Brother Ebenezer Brown quietly entered the reserved seat department, wholly unnoticed as he supposed. Imagine his surprise when he caught the eye of Deacon Andrew Wey sitting on the top seat with a working-man's' glass of lemonade in his hand, which he had just bought for live cents. The good brother on seeing Mr. Wey said: "Why, deacon, what brought you here?" To which the deacon replied: "I just came to bring the children." Brother Brown scrutinized every face adjoining the deacon's seat, but could not discover the little folks, then he asked "whore are the children?" to which interrogative the kind hearted d_eacon sa\p, " why, I left them out in the side show." •\V~atertown Boots and Shoes.

Mr. Wallace is the man who once proposed to give Livermore a creamery if wo would donate the land, He has been putting in a great deal of improved machinery lately and had got a little behind, but he is being aided by others and his creameries will run right along, and in time he will probably pull through, He is very popular with the farmers with whom no has been dealing and with the people generally, and they all wish him. well.
