Altogether iit was a success, and financially the «oej".'ly is solvent and all premiums can be had of the secretary in cash, dollar for dollar. The Haws. The first race Thursday afternoon was the 2:40 trottiEg. The entries were: " Prairie Queen," owned by J. P. Johnson of Wesley: "Rapid Transit," owned bj-J, 3. Smart & Co. of Humboldt; "Top Royal," owned by Wm. D.elaney of Bancroft, and "Rubei," owned by d EL Blossom. The race was won in three heats by Rapid Transit, Top Boyal second, and Prairie Queen third. There were lien entiles in the novelty race, which «•.&&, as usual, amusing to I2ie crowd. G«o, Carter's pony won first. X M.. Cunningham's second, and Staley's horse third. There were also ten entries in the county running race, which was one of !the Ibest .contested .ever seen on the itiwjk. Wm. HJelauey'b Dock won, with Col Tin's mare second, and G, H. Cof- fen'e Burl Boy third, all of them running in :a bunch each heat. The last race for Thursday was a ,ch between Fred Corey's black match from Wesley and the Moore horse from Portland. There was a purse of $100 up between them, which Corey 1 s horse won easil v In two heats. Friday s races opened with the coun- i/v tw>ttiug i-ace. There were seven entries, Prairie Queen, Brewster's Darkev, Bubel. Top Royal, Bowman's Wallace K., Roberts' Dusty, and Swet- ting's carriage borwe. Darkey won the first heat, but Wallace K. took the next three. Prairie Queen a close contestant, It was a good race throughout. The free-for-all running race bad six entries aud v/as the best race of the fair. Bay Dock, owned by J. J. Kelly of Bancroft, Colvin's mare, and Corey's Wesley Boy made a hard race. The second' heal, in which Bay Dock won the race, was run Bide by side with the CoLvin mare, and was won by less than a foot. The three-year-old race, which was arranged in place of the free-for-all, which did not fill, v/as won by E. R. Adams' Maud of Wesley, John Patter- eon'B King Duke second, and Wm. Delaney's Bun Hurb third, During the races the Winkel Bros.'

All agreed I/hat the Showing j was better tihan at the state fair. j Among the most active men In mak-i ing the lair a success were Win. Good- i rich of Hebron, R. S. Uarr of !Lra Verne, \ »nd E. J. Kernan -of Wesley- Toe .ones' ifrom a distance showed more •animation ; than those oear by. Oar Iarmersin ; the neighttoring township will hare to •"g-et;a more" or they -won^t be in the race. B. F. Smith had (down some fine samples of his Chester Whites. Hie example ought to shame some of the other farmers of the county. He took two teams two days to haul his hogs in, and; spent all tlie time of the fair in work on i the grounds. If the rest would do half ; as much the grounds wouldn't hold the; exhibits. '•. In the free-for-all running race Fred! Corey's horse jumped over the picket fence on the third heat and bolted into the crowd. His ilder brought him on the track by the grand stand and did not ride him around, which technically did not entitle him to any money in the race. The directors gave him the money, however. In the county trotting race some of the trainers ran out in the track before all the horses got in and Geo. Hunter was struck by the sulky wheel which Wm. Pettibone was on. George was knocked down but not hurt. Mr. Pettibone was thrown out and bis eyelid badly cut, but no Berious injury will re-: suit. He did not drive in the other beats. Clark Peck's team barelj' escaped making a bad runaway. They started to run about half way to the gate, but Mr. Peek beaded them into the ticket office, which they- hit full force. The carriage tongue was broken, and Mrs. Peck was thrown out and hurt. Had the team gone through the gate someone would have been killed, as the roads were full of teams and people. The educational exhibit was the best yet made. Some clay modeling done in Miss Adolphson's school in Ramsay was noticeable, and a map of Kossuth coun- f ty by a McChesney boy, at Burt, also.' The maps and drawings were all good, including some by Supt. Reed, and the speaking and singing of the little ones was very entertaining. The exhibition of high school apparatus from the Algona school added to the value of the exhibit. Supt. Reed and the teachers are entitled to great credit. Jack St. John was on hand at the races to see that the horses were properly shod. It has come to be an understood thing among the racing fraternity in this section that Jack is a superior workman in that line, and he is always depended upon to be on the grounds with a shoeing outfit. He is now making regular trips to Bancroft every two weeks, where his services are in good demand. Jack's shoeing is first class, and every horseman in this part of the country knows it. —A Free FteM *a4 Straight MB SPorBeoarfler — - ....... .— .. ..... iL.'C.

Their success in county fights before and the lessening republican rote on state and national issues in consequence, decided them that this iras time to strike for the whole "shooting match," 1 " and give Ryan and Cleveland a feather for their caps in Iowa. Of course the idea was to keep up the old tactics for breaking the republican vote, and this is to be done by begging republicans to vote for Smith and Hofius because they desire a second term. «,nfl-%a3il fia'Sierti amfl * iruto'Shg' va& be ifii-efl ;as soon «s toe ipfft in tod the deer ftflL H*e jjsnre -aws sooner flowx *bisn ibe ^»s <nj»rm It his tanJ e atteffifflirne *i> taft ats Btrt mjicm feefing She tawn jprfint sff S3» j weapon it/be fremsiifla -KBteinO -sbrntik C"Bt so TidlBTitlT *bat itihe arntrtar -wsslihfwra several rants a way, «nfl in auBoh te» tame tibxa it takes to SeD it to* fleer was tip and ibtnmfliug * way «crwss t»e prairie, apparently -as goad «s *Ter for a long .chase.

The Courier will work this end of the string for all it is worth, and if republicans can be started on these two there is a chance to get up enough local irritation to have it extend to the whole ticket. It is shrewdly planned and our readers will see it develop in the Courier. The second term for Smith and Hofius will be all the Courier will have about politics. The convention was wellattendedand our friends—theenemy—were reasonably entbuastic. The wheelhorses were recognized in the choice of C. D. Pettibone for chairman, who presided in his usually pleasing manner. Our candidate Thompson, we regret to say, allowed himself to be sidetracked with a secretaryship, and the long man from Ledyard, Kenyon. aided him. Messrs. Smith and Hofius were named by acclamation, Mr. Ogren won for clerk on a ballot, and J. W. Sullivan was named for county attorney. For supervisor' Wm. Klein of Seneca runs against W. J. Burton of Harrison, and J. R. Dutton of Cresco against C. C. Chubb of the same town. For the candidates personally THE UPPEK DES MOINES has the highest respect. Both Mr. Smith and Mr. Hofius have been excellent officers, and Mr. Sullivan is a genial and able attorney. Of the others we know but little, although all are well spoken of. But insomuch as all of them are this year in the field to influence Kossuth county to go against a republican president and congressman and as we have seen in late years that a split on county officers means a reduced party vote, THE UPPER DES MOINES is frank in saying that it wishes to see them all quietly and gently but surely snowed under in November. If they have a majority well and good, let Kossuth be democratic. But if the republicans have ten the most, let every republican go in by ten majority. This election decides where we stand politically. Upon examining libeir igaiae Sibe ers found that the bultet from Mr. Reed's revolver had struck the 3eJt KH\- ler squarely on the center aafl imbedded itself in the horn where it 3s still to be seen. But the blow was sufficient to momentarially stun the animal as above stated. After a lapse of 18 years the lost revolver was found and picked up by Mr. Beecher of Ckvrsdth and now hangs upon one of the .spikes of the antlers which occupy a conspicuous place in Mr. Reed's store. The wood work of the handle bus long since disappeared and the iron work is somewhat rusty after the manner of Rip Van Winkle s gun and the changes that have taken place up there on the prairie in the interval are almost as great as those noted by Irving's hero upon his return to JOHN PAUL LUMBER GO.

Another expert judge for cattle, Bhecp, and hogs Is what ia wanted next year, W, H. Clark had his hand cream separator on exhibition und showed how easily it works. John Halnes had in some of that corn from seed planted Juno 0. None bettor was over raised in KossuLh, MulUca's pony outfit ran uway going home Friday, but no damage was done beyond u broken buggy whool. The grounds wore crowded with people who said, as usual, "I have got something at homo that would beat that." A picture ot the frescoing of tho opera house gave all an idea of what the interior is to look like. It drew a crowd. C. D. Bartlott acted as starting judge for all the races, John Grove, Goo. F. IJolioway, and F, J. Kornan being tho race judges. We hear nothing but complimentary mention of C. 13. Lewis' management of tho horso department, and also of the judging. Two big ripe oars of yellow dent corn from seed planted Juno 20 wore exhibited, And still some say this is not a sure corn country. The Catholic ladies gave a very excellent dinner and wore liberally pat- ronised. They took in over $00 the first day. In all they took in $140. A curious Illustration of how exhibits run was shown in the hog department. Last year there wore not pens enough; this year there was only one exhibitor. The ladies can be depended upon to da theli 1 share. They had a very line display of fancy work and domestic supplies. Their building was a center of attraction. J. E. Stacy and Jos. Thompson had their older press on the grounds and furnished the best of fresh apple juice to the crowds. It was a refreshing drink and made from very fine apples. Comfort Stowe brought his herd of Holstelns from Burt and showed a fine lot of cattle. His bull four years old weighed, the day ho was brought down, even 21.25 pounds. He is quite an enthusiastic JJolstein man. The shpiVj pf Jersey cattle was the best; to be seen apy where outside the state fair. W. H, Clark had a lot of The Huinboldt County Hog Case and the JvonK T>ltlK«itlon Over It— Old Man Hodeman'H Sudden Death — Another Daylight Burglary. 'Squire Raymond's candidacy for county attorney recalls the famous Humboldt county hog case which he won In tho United States supreme court, and which was the first in which the point raised was decided by that tribunal. The hogs belonged to O. Beckwith and were run over by the Minneapolis & St. Louis train, the damage being small. The suit was for double damages in the justice court and Raymond's client won. The company appealed to the district court and lost. They then took it to the United States district court on the claim th'at the double-damage law was unconstitutional. They lost again and went to tho supreme court, where Senator Zach Chandler appeared for them. Mr. Raymond filed a motion to dismiss their case and the court sustained him. The case lasted several years and Beckwith got $24 damages at the end of it. Found Dead In Ilia lied. A sad death was discovered last Wednesday by neighbors who broke into M. Hodgman's lonely house down on tho river flat. They found him dead on tho bed and with every evidence of having been so for some days. In the absence of Coroner Sheetz, 'Squire Taylor officiated and by Dr. Pride's testimony found that he died of paralysis of the heart. This meant that he dropped suddenly and did not endure a lingering departure In loneliness. He was buried the same day and his two boys ut Garner were notified by telegram, but neither has shown np. He loaves a little house but no other property. _ Work of a Uold Hurnlur. A second burglary was committed last week, Peter Purvis being the victim. A sneak thief entered his house Friday afternoon while he was at the mill at work und his family had gone to tho fair, and took u wutch which cost him $35 and $13 in money belonging to his hoy. There was in the house at the time over $1*0 in money, handy to get at, but tho fellow evidently got scared and hurried out. No clue was had as to who ho is, und like tho sneak who got Col. Spencer's property, ho Is probably safe, (Jo to Klat'a Kuckot For bargains In Underwear, Hosiery, Gloves, Mittens, Caps, Dutohess Pants, Jamestown Dress Goods, Tinware, Notions, etc.— 27t4 ___ FOUND — A saddle.

AN EXCITING HUNT. A Deer Chnso on the Town Site of Corwith—KossutU County Kimroda Made a Record. LuVerne News: While in W. H. Reed's hardware store in Corwith the other day the writer's attention was attracted by a fine pair of five-pronged antlers that had evidently once adorned the head of a deer, and as we examined them Mr. Reed told us how he came to possess them. It seems that the horns are the trophy of an exciting chase which took place on the present town site of Corwith away back in the winter of 1878 and in which Sam. Reed now of Algona and our fellow townsman, B. F. Burtis bore a conspicuous part. They had been following upon the trail of the deer for some time when Mr. Reed came up with it on or ubout the exact spot now occupied by the slaughter house. He was armed with a five- shot Colt's revplvor of tfre old powder. P» Five Very Good Things.
