Huckins, Lottie Evans, Laurence Dickson, Nellie Anderson, Geo. V. Baker. Our horsemen report that Emmetsburg has a pacing horse that can go in 2:10. Emmetsburg has always had the name of being a fast town. The ladies of the reading room are preparing an entertainment, to be given soon, further announcement which ivill be made in due season. J. W. Wadsworth has been invited to act as starting judge at the Spencer races next week, but will not be able to attend on account of Mr. Smith being away. Both W. F. Carter's and E. P. Stroller's pacing colts are at home. Their summer's training is ended, and while they have shown speed they are not yet race horses. Geo. E. Clarke says that the track is laid on the new railroad from Forest City to Thompson. It will reach the county line by Oct. I, and reach Armstrong by the end of the month. E. P. Bircher heard Dolliver at the flax palace Friday. He says he was the only speaker of the week who held his crowd at all. He spoke 'about 20 minutes and had everything his own way. A bet of $10 a side was made Monday that Ryan would get a majority in Kossuth. As he will not run ahead of his ticket this means that some democrat Miovos that the county is going democratic. The sheriff has no clue to the thief who stole Frank Potter's goods at Hobart and who jumped through the car window at Emmetsburg with his handcuffs on. His partner is in jail here awaiting trial. A mass meeting of citizens will be held Friday evening at the Wigwam to consider the packing house project. Everybody should turn out and see What the chances are for making a paying institution of it. Mr. Bartlett has arrived from Illinois to act as horse judge at the fair tomorrow, and is visiting at A. W. Moffatt s and C. E. Lewis'. The prospect is that the fair will have the best horse show ever given in Kossuth. Jas. Taylor has rented one of the A. D. Clarke store rooms for his fall display of cloaks, and Miss Hattie Stephens has them in charge. His auction sale continues, and some very fine bargains are going cheap. John Morton of Irvington ha,d his team of horses killed by lightning m the storm Saturday afternoon. He was working in the field and the team was near the stack. The loss is severe, as he has no other horses. Marriage licenses have been issued to Adam Luchsingbr and Florence Wolfe, John Aden and Carrie Aman, Leonard Ebert and Mary Miller, Wm. Stamer and Lena Legenhausen, Carl Nelson and Lizzie Post. If any of our readers come in to the fair and fail to call at Durdall & Co. or 34 more than last year. ~{"«> "Crease all but four are ferns" which would indicate that the bovs losing ground. The total is large Shows Algona's growth. Mr. and Mrs. Guy Grove returned from their wedding trip Fridav and are located at home and keeping house. Guy bought the St. John property and made a sizable addition to it, and they lV av ^ * ver y cozy place. Mr. and Mrs. M. Z. Grove attended the wedding but came home earlier in the week. Wesley is to be the scene of the democratic opening in the county. Friday evening J. H. McConlogue, democratic candidate for secretary of state, is to speak there, and J. J. Ryan will speak with him. They will make a pretty good team and Wesley will hear what they have to say for themselves. J. J. Ryan spoke at Carroll with Gov. Boies. The Register says he occupied 15 minutes, while the Leader gives him an hour. The only paper which reports him at all is the Chicago Herald. From that report it seems that he entertained the crowd, and didn't make any worse statements than the governor did. We neglected last week to note the receipt of the Whittemoro Champion. It is a good paper. We have welcomed a number of Whittemore ventures since the days when Jack Henry first entered the field, and we hope the Champion, as its name suggests, will survive longer than the most of them have. Old friends of W. K. Vickroy were pleased to see him again this week. It is now 16 years since ho left Kossuth, and he says he would not know Algona nor the other parts of the county. Ho was the first man to settle in what is now south Portland township. He is visiting his daughter, Mrs. Chas. Wooster. Peter Winkel says that in addition to the challenges issued already for "Byron Sherman" that $200 dollars will now be put up that he can shut " Eva T" out in mile heats, and will race at any time or place agreed upon. The people would like to see a race between these horses, and this is pretty big odds on " Byron Sherman." H. J. Edens has sold out his meat market to his father-in-law, Mr. Shadle, who takes his son in company with him. The change is made because Mrs. Edens' health has been steadily poor in Algona and he will now seek a location where she will improve. The family will not move at once but he will go on the road for an insurance company. Presiding Elder Black moved his household goods to Eagle Grove Mou- da.y and henceforth will make that place his headquarters. He owns a house there which is more convenient than renting, and Eagle Grove is a little more central to ' his district. He and Mrs. Black made many friends in Algona who will regret the departure of so estimable a family. A. B. Cummins recalled a curious reminiscence as he left Algona on the Milwaukee train. As he stood at the depot he remarked that he was on the first train that ever ran into Algona, and then went on to relate that he was express messenger. He quit the service soon after and read law and located in Des Moines. He is now generally recognized as one of the leading men of the Iowa bar. A curious accident occurred Monday evening to a horse being led down the Thompson road by Mr. Nelson, who has been working for Ambrose Call. The horse was tied behind the wagon and suddenly stopped, and before they could reach it had fallen down and died. Investigation showed that some rods back the horse had stepped on a stick and the other end had came up in such a way as to cut an artery under the hind leg and it had bled to death. Some three weeks ago a young man came to town with a good horse and buggy and traded them to Mat. iticn- ardson. Monday a sheriff from Winona, Minn., came and informed Mat. that he guessed he would have to secure the outfit as it had been stolen. It appears that the boy hired them to drive about town and that was the lost seen of them. Mat. had to turn the outfit over and is out what he gave for it. He gave the sheriff what clue he could to aid in the capture of the thief. The cheapest quarters sold at the school land sale last Thursday went at $12.25 an acre. The highest went at $18.60 an acre. This for raw land shows how Kossuth soil is advancing. Section 16-99, 27 sold as follows: Northeast to A. D. Clarke at $12.25; northwest to L, C. Barber at §14; southeast to A. D. Clarke at $12.60; southwest to Bonk of Ledyard at $14.90 Section 16. 100,28, sold: Northeast to M. Hoyi- land at $18; northwest to Chas, J. Johnson at $18.60; southwest to M. Anderson at $16.60; southeast to S. O. Graw at $15.55. Mrs. Anna Wilson, fttother of Robert, fell on the stairs, breaking two ribs and one wrist and dislocating the Other wrist. Her head also struck the stairs in such a way as to cut the side of .her face open badly, and 15 stitches were taken to sew it up. Mrs. Wilson is advanced in years and the injuries are very painful. All who remember so far back will recall Mr. Wilson's death, which resulted from the caving in of the cut on the Milwaukee- south of Jones & Stacy's mill. Since that time Mrs. Wilson has lived on the farm near Burt most of the time. Now that everything points to a square party contest in the county this fall there is considerable speculation as to what the returns will show. We understand the democrats have made a count and concede only 10 majority to the republicans on the national ticke^. Money is offered even that Ryan will carry the county, and the whole democratic county ticket is claimed. In the convention Friday, A. A. Brunson, who is a close guesser, claimed 75 majority for the republicans. The new settlement makes any prediction impossible, but the democrats are very confident that they will elect everything. They certainly will if the republicans do not get out eve_ry vote they have, besides doing missionary service in every township. The Spear pasture north of the mill was the scene of an exciting episode Monday. It held 48 horses which an Idaho man had traded to Mat. Richardson for a note and mortgage. But becoming suspicious of the character of the paper he rescinded the trade and went to take the horses back. Richardson had Harry Dodge on guard and the Idaho man had Tom Kelley and others, and besides them Lawyers Clarke and Sullivan for the Idaho man, and Quarton for Mat., gathered on the scene. The various sorties of both sides on the horses, resulting once in threats of dire damage with a willow club, would make an interesting war story. After a day spent in wrangling the Idaho man decided to let the horses go and sue Richardson for the money. He claims that he has been swindled, the mortgage not being as represented. The horses are the best lot -ever brought to this county in a drove. Coal, Coal. I handle only the best grade of hard Illinois and Iowa coals, always at bottom prices.-26t8 J. J. WILSON.

A clean stock and everything new and fresh; THAT'S WHAT TALKS. Imitators who boast of doing business on '' job lots" can't expect to keep up with our procession, for the people can't be fooled always with accumulations or old styles and fabrics that are many years old, and which are too dear at any price.

Hutchins received word at Sioux City that his daughter in California was better, and he and Mrs. Call did not go. He has sent word for her and her husband to come to Algona, and if she does not improve' rapidly they will spend some time here. Mr. Kobs, clerk in the New England, received a telegram Saturday announcing the death of his sister at Blue Earth City, and went home at once. Mr. Kobs has made many friends among tne young people who will be sorry that he is called on so sad an errand. W. F. Carter attended the fiax palace exhibition at Forest City last week and was judge in the free-for-all trotting race" Eva T" was in. She came in second in a race that was won in 2:44, which was not fast time. She was not in good condition, as she has beaten that record easily. J. J.

Ttte colonel is ce-tain that the theft must have occurred after he left the house, while the family were in the back rooms. The W went up stairs and through the front rooms 'below. The watches belonged to Mrs. Spencer and her mother, and the rings to Mrs. Hedrick. The thief left no tracks by which he can be detected, and it looks as though the property is lost. This occurrence will serve to make others more careful in keeping their doors locked. «» V» TV 11QUU 11 HO UUwl* wwvj *• i week building an addition to his g elevator 24x40 feet in size.
