A little daughter arrived at the home of M. DeL. Parsons Friday. D. B. Avey is now his own man, and is running a'harness shop in the Mason barn. It is reported that hail did somedam- nge a few miles northwest of town last week. Frank Single and Jennie Pettibone are elected teachers at Wesley for next year. Ledyard steps to the front with her record of new buildings, and big oat yield. A handsome new cutlery cnse is one of the attractions at J. W. Robinson's store. Republican clubs are being organized, and will bo ready when the campaign begins. Galbrnith calls attention to his new fall goods this week. His new stock is arriving. The cost made by the Aurora Well company in their work in Algona is about $500, we learn. Philip Dorweiler corresponds for the Iowa weather bureau from West Bend, aud H. M. Renfrew from Bancroft.

Superintendent Carey says the recent teachers' examination was more satisfactory than the previous one in the work done. The regular business quarter of this paper closes this week, and the business manager will make friendly calls on our patrons. The Milwaukee did not have cars enough for its Sunday excursion to Clear Lake, and will not run trains west of the lake. Some little curiosity is felt over the delay of the democrats to call any conventions. Do they intend to endorse Messrs. Smith and Funk? The first Shetland colt to be born in Kossuth arrived at W. F. Carter's last week. It is a fine mare colt, and worth ), according to its owner. cents, tax on land 20 cents, tax on horses six cents, eight per cent, on investment $1.86, total $10.21. This makes the cost according to our Kossuth figures 80 cents a bushel for corn. A fair test of the honesty of such estimates is what corn can be hired raised for. Who will give 30 cents a bushel on contract next year? If there is anyone he can get 10,000 acres as quick as the papers can be made. Interest in the runaway match at Burt some months ago was revived Sat- urdav as the husband, Mr. Watkins, appeared before'Squire Taylor for the postponed preliminary hearing. He made no defense, and was bound over to meet the grand jury in October on the charge of bigamy. Geo. E. Clarke is his attorney, and he is out on $1,000 bonds. Rev. Rome Walker preached before a crowded house at the Baptist church Sunday morning, showing both in stylo and delivery a marked improvement since last year. He has still a year at the theological school before entering regularly into the work. With his wife he is visiting his sister, Mrs. Danson, in her new homo. His wife was Miss Alice B. Johnston of Princeton, 111. The political contest opens with R. J. Hunt's card announcing bis candidacy for the republican nomination for sheriff, Mr. Hunt's long residence in the county and wide acquaintance make anything'more than a simple announcement superfluous. He will undoubtedly have many friends who would be pleased to see him succeed, but in the toss up of politics no one can tell what will result. At the annual state W. C. T. U. mooting, which will bo held in DCS Moinos, October 0 to 8, it is expected to hold a grand gold medal contest. All counties in the state, whoreDomorcst modal contests have boon hold, are invited to participate. Any contestant who holds a silver medal is entitled to enter as one of the contestants in this grand gold medal contest. T. M. Clark of Fenton started yesterday for a month or more visit with relatives in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Among them are a brother and sister he has not seen for 30 years. Ho has lately rented his farm to Mr. Palmer, who lately camo from Kansas, and who is a capable and successful farmer. Mr. Clark has been broken up in his farm work by the death of his wife, and is going- to take a well-earned vacation. John Winkel and his horse "Kossuth" came home last week. By some slip, while in training, the horse lamed a leg and was unfit to go in the races he was entered for. He was to have run at Keokuk, Creston, and DOH Moines, and half the entrance at these races has been paid and forfeited by his failure. It is thought his rider reigned him up too suddenly and strained him. It is not likely that he can be fitted for more races this season.

Eoolce MOBTGAGES- g e ' ^ tor Sjj^fflfclMtf 8tw|t " We The annual meeting of the Algona district campmeeting begins next Monday at Livermore. It is expected that a number will attend from this county. There will be a "daisy tea" at the Congregational church parlors, Thursday, Aug. 20. Tea from 6 to 8 p. m. Waiters will be in costume. All are invited. The Loyalist society of the Baptist church will give an ice cream social at the residence of W. P. Hofius, three miles north of town, Thursday evening, Aug. 20. All are invited. There will be a meeting of First ward republicans at the Reed store building on State street tomorrow evening, for the purpose of organizing a republican club. All who are entitled to seats should be on hand. J. W. Wadsworth goes to Des Moines this week on his state fair work, and Sheriff Stephens will go next week. Mr. Wadsworth is assistant in the department of privileges and Mr. Stephens is marshal during the fair. The fire department suffered from a sort of paralysis Sunday, for after the hose cart and pump at last got to the grounds it was discovered that the suction hose was at the bottom of the town well, being used in the testing operations. Rev. Geo. H. Kennedy, formerly of Madison, N. J., and Phil. C. Hanna's successor at Eagle Grove, will preach at the Methodist church next Sunday evening, exchanging with Rev. Whitfield. Rev. Whitfield will give a temperance talk at the Grove. J. B. Jones sent us a harvest item from Elmore last Wednesday which speaks for crops this year: Car of No. 1 new wheat loaded here today, yielding over 20 bushels per acre; sold for 79 cents. Oats yielding 52 bushels, machine measure, and very fine. The shooting of Lew Tibbetts in Fenton, noted last week, resulted from having a gun slip through the slats of a road cart. In trying to pull it out the hammer caught, and a charge of shot landed in young Tibbetts' shoulder. He will not lose his arm, as at first feared. The general distribution of the premium lists for the county fair last week is attracting attention to that approaching event. In grain and stock the county will make a great exhibit this year, while amusements promise to be plenty. The bicycle club is discussing some races, and a Shetland pony trotting race is promised. Sovereign's figures on corn raising as reported for Kossuth are as follows for one acre: Fertilizing $1.31, cutting stalks 18 cents, plowing $1.23, harrowing twice 30 cents, planting 26 cents, seed corn 14 cents, cultivating three times $1.25, husking and cribbing $1.23, cost of crib 24 cents, shelling 74 cents, haling to "market $j.oe, fencing 16 For a bona fide dairy record we commend the following: T. M. Clark on his Fenton farm received $72.88 during March for the milk of nine cows five weeks. The average yield of the cows for the time was nearly 23 pounds a day apiece. Mr. Clark is an accurate figurer on his farm work, nnd this record is straight. In talking about dairying Mr. Clark says a cow coming in in the fall will give a third more milk than she will coming in in the spring, and that winter milking is what gives a profit to the dairyman. In our neighborhood news is an item about a suit for $5,000 accident insurance, to be brought by Geo. E. Clarke, on account of the death of Dr. Straw, Mrs. Clarke's brother. Mr. Clarke says no suit has been brought, as the company has not yet refused to pay the policy. But the evidence is prepared and a suit will be brought if necessary. Dr. Straw's death was caused by an injury on the stomach, which caused inflammation, and death followed in two weeks. The case is plain and the insurance will be secured beyond a doubt. And now it seems that the county traded off its distinguished guests and mesmerizers from Chicago too cheaply. It got the $2,000 back, and fines, fees, and costs amounting to $000 more, but Sunday a man from Missouri arrived, who had photographs, etc., and who expressed his personal willingness to give $1,600 for the possession of the gentlemen. He wanted them for the same offense committed here, only in their act at Plattsmouth they both drew revolvers and extracted the money by terrorizing the victim. A vigilance committee was formed and a search instituted. The detective who ranio to Algona had both men thoroughly marked, and his description tallied exactly with their appearance. Ho knew enough of the crowd to know that the third man's nuiuu was not White as given here, and that Spencer and Clark wont under twenty other nnmos. Also that a powder mark on Clark's face was gained in the exciting but perilous amusement of blowing a safe. When ho learned that the birds had llown ho left town. , , , , Before going Spencer and Clark had told their version of their history, which showed that they had been betting on prize lights, horse races, etc., and had been heavy losers, and wanted a little money to get on thoir feet. But the presumption now is that they are professional thugs, and that their crime in Kossuth is one in a, long list of the same or worse offenses. ARK you on to Rist's Racket store? GALBUAITH has just received a nice now stock of worsted dress goods, •prints, etc. An Opportunity Will bo afforded your eastern friends to visit you by the series of excursions arranged by the Chicago & Northwestern railway, for which tickets will be sold at very low rates.

Bowyer gave him a pair of Chinese spectacles, which are now exhibited in his show case. They are curiously made, the glasses being set in rims of tortoise shell, and the bows being jointed with hinges and made of something like Gorman silver. These spectacles match the Japanese photographs sent some time ago, and other curiosities of the eastern world. Lieut. Bowyer has spent four years in oriental climes, and now goes to take the chair of mathematics in the Annapolis academy. He is considered one of the best and ablest young men in the navy. The usual Sunday quiet was disturbed this week by a fire alarm which brought a good crowd to Paine & Cady's new hay barn about 0 o'clock. By lively work the blaze in the hay was drowned out and no great damage was done, but timely discovery alone saved the property. It seems the fire was started by some children with matches outside the barn, and passed under into the hay. Mrs. Burroughs saw the (ire start and gave the alarm, and Jack St. John ran over just as the blaze was coming up, and stamped it down till help arrived. His presence of mind and quick work saved the barn. There was no insurance, and quite a loss would have resulted from a fire. Great Opportunity. Ladies of this and surrounding towns are invited to call at the Rutherford house, whore they can see one of Chicago's industrial teachers, who can inter- cat them in the system of work being carried on in all the schoolsin that city, there cutting all their garments by measure, by a system so simple that a girl of ten years can learn. She wants to leave a good worker in every town, and will give lessons until Sept. 1. Call and investigate. Go TO Galbraith's for boots and shoes. Have you seen their $2.25 ladies' line shoes?

Having secured the agency of the New England Loan and Trust Company, I am now prepared to make farm loans on five to ten years' time at the lowest possible rate, with privilege of partial payments before due. Office over Chrischilles 1 store, Algona. The union Sunday evening service at the Congregational church brought out a nattering audience to listen to Rev. Walter Walker, and one which was amply repaid for its attendance. The finished oratory, which marked his last appearance, was present, and with it a •breadth and directness in his discourse which indicate the mental stimulus afforded by contact with a great intellectual center. Rev. Walker's friends have predicted a brilliant future for him as a pulpit orator, and his success thus far more than fulfills expectation. With his estimable wife he visits at home till Friday, when they will go to Chicago, then by lake to Rochester, where he preaches, and then to New York. They enter upon their new year under more favorable circumstances than at any time since going to the city, and New York will for years at least be their permanent home. GALBRAITH has a few more remnants at cheap prices. FOR the annual encampment, Sons of •Veterans of the U. S., to be held in Minneapolis, Aug. 24 to 29, tickets will be sold by the C.
