DES MOINES, Aug. 8.—The weather has been generally favorable for harvest work and threshing, and the small grain crops are mostly secured in all portions of the state. Reports of threshers are very flattering, and there is a probability that the round-up of the year will show a considerable increase in the yield per acre of oats over the averages of the regular August report. Corn has made fine progress during the week, and the outlook is decidedly improved .since August 1. Five or six- weeks of favorable weather will insure :i handsome yield of that staple.

Bush Visits the City and Tells of What He Saw - A I.Ittle Politics Mixed In. The genial editor of the Hancock Signal was present at the county convention and writes pleasantly of his visit to Algona: We had the pleasure of spending last Friday at Algona renewing old acquaintances and making new ones. It was the day of holding The republican county convention for electing senatorial and representative delegates and the town was full of republicans seemingly anxious to do the best for party success. For a week or ten days prior A. D. Clarke and ,T. B. Jones, the contesting candidates for state senator had canvassed the county for delegates in such a lively manner as to set° the political pot boiling over. The contest was nip and tuck, and when the convention was called to order Andy Clarke withdrew from the contest in favor of Senator Funk of Dickinson county, and Jones, not to be outdone by his opponent, also withdrew in favor of Funk. The convention received the withdrawals with H. whoop and hurrah, and delegates wore elected for Funk. On call of townships John G. Smith had a majority for representative and he was allowed to select tho delegates We have attended a good many political conventions with the old wheel horses of Kossuth county and always found them "top shelf politicians," and we find the younger men of that county equal to the old set. For four years past the republicans of that county have been divided into factions and usino-the knife unmercifully, but there is a good feeling this year to forget and forgive and work for party success. Kossuth county should give a republican majority of 300 or 400, and will do it if the republicans will let the past be forgotten and pull together. Algona has grown into a city of second class, and is a beautiful place. We were surprised at tbe many improvements which have been made in the past few years fine business blocks and residences, improved streets, and water works. They show push and enterprise and we congratulate its citizens. b Im ALGONA, IOWA.
