Peter Jenkins and Mr. Corll bought land of Dingley & Moffatt in January, and were out last week on the excursion to Se u, ,' The y could not flnd w ° r <ls with which to express their satisfaction with Kossuth, John Moore, oldestsonof Wra.

The jail birds walked calmly down to State street from the court house and passed Hay &Rice'sclerk, who thought oft, and so on. It won't work this time, Bro. Hinchon. You might just as well come out for a square fight. You can't beg your men into office this year. The news of the appointment of Prof. O. H. Baker as consul to Copenhagen came in last week's dailies and proved a pleasant surprise to old supporters of Algona college. The appointment was secured by Capt. Hull and Senator Allison, and will result in having a pretty shrewd and vigorous representative at this important station. Prof. Baker came to Algo-ia in 1869 and for four years was , anager of the college started here ^ the time by the Methodist conference on the strength of local donations. The school flourished until the grasshopper raids which were too much for it. Mrs. Baker is dead since then, the oldest daughter, Jodie, is professor of Greek at Indianola, and the second daughter, Myra, is teaching successfully in California. PEBSONAL MOVEMENTS. Honesty Bound to Win, OUR LOW PRICES.. The past week has demonstrated that the purchasing public appreciates our extremely low prices for stylish and well-made Clothing. All our goods are fresh and^new} we have no old or shelf-worn goods to offer you; come and see for yourself; it is the city heard the hunting he is having from since reaching grounds, but we venture some exciting sport. W, H. Reed was over from Corwith Monday and says that a big excursion of Illinois farmers came last week. Over 4,000 acres of land were sold, ana farms will be opened at once. • Letters remain uncalled for in the postofflce for E. White, P. C, Taeple- man, John L. McColloch, Eva Green, Blanche Jenks, Jacob Knudsen, George Keeling, Moses Caster, Dr. Calvin B. Lake, Rev. Planigan's household goods were J..LUUUU J-J-'lJ 1 «*J-WH,G OVilUl IY, VY I1U ULlUUgllU they were people who had business up around the court house. They then went west, the exact direction not known at the present writing, Charlie Grimm came over from Clear Lake Monday for a little shooting match. He and S. S. Sessions shot at live pigeons against John G. Smith and Dr. West, getting 40 out of 50, against 42. Grimm got24, Sessions 22, Smith and West 21 apiece. They had a pleasant meeting and shot well. The opera house company perfected its organization Friday hy chosing C. H. Blossom manager. He is a first- class business man and popular with all, and we believe the public will be suited with what is done the coming year. A committee is now engaged in arranging for an opening performance. John Lindblom in Swea has a field of corn within a mile of the state line, which was planted June 10 and which will yield from 60 to 80 bushels an acre. Swea township has some of the finest fields of corn we ever saw in the county, and it is reported that all over northern Kossuth corn is the best crop over raised. Thos. Cooke arranged at Dubuque last week for the state shooting match to be held at that city. The 60 selected from Iowa's four regiments meet there, and after a week's meeting those who go to Chicago A-e selected. Mike Walsh, Capt. Edens, and Chas. Witham will probably go from Algona, leaving next Monday. They stand a good chance of getting on the state team if they hold up to their present records. Work will begin as soon as men can be had on the new cigar factory building, which 6. E. Palmer will build for Brunson & Waterhouse. It will be a brick veneered building with' pressed brick front, and be a handsome addition to Thorington. With this and the opera house there we shall have to begin urging the owners of broken battlements on that street to begin repairs and painting. The social club had an exceptionally interesting programme Friday evening. E. B. Butler gave a select reading, Prof. Chaffee discussed opening the world's fair on Sunday, and Supt. Reed had a paper on amusements and their importance. The music was fine, and the papers were interesting and instructive. The club is a success and its meetings should come once in two weeks during the winter. Charlie Cohenour and Bert Mathews saw some strangers talking to the escaped jail birds at the window Sunday night about 10 o'clock. They remarked then it looked strange, but thought no more about it. Sheriff Graham is sure that they had outside help, and those who have looked at the walls say they had a sharp drill of some kind. It seems likely that instruments were furnished them, as they had been carefully searched, No clue can be got of their whereabouts, i Miss Laura Clarke, daughter of Col. Clarke of Cedar Rapids and niece of Geo. E. and E. H. Clarke, was married at her home last Thursday to Robt. Safely, who is said to be a prominent business man of the city. The wedding was attended by friends from Boston, Chicago, Minneapolis, and Iowa cities and is described as one of the most brilliant ever celebrated in Cedar Rapids. The bride has visited in Algona and her many friends here join in congratulations. In talking of the Homestead trials Geo. W. Argo said yesterday that they probably would not come on till after election. He said farther that in his opinion the indictments for treason are simply for the purpose of Bothering the union men and weakening them. The ,any is not trying t° se . c - Ul '^i™?n; n any of the cases, but is delaying Mrs. H. A. Clock visited in this last week. Will. Sterzbach came over from Rodman for a day's visit last week. Mrs. W. S. Dorland and three children left for their Llano home yesterday. Mrs. H. H. McMnster, wife of our old-time Milwaukee agent, is visiting in town. Geo. E.

Mrs Pitt Cravath and Mrs. Boveo came from Whitewater last Wednesday for a week's visit with Mrs. R. B. Warren. They return tomorrow. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Mason were up to Swan Lake Thursday to attend the funeral of Mrs. Mason's sister's husband. He died suddenly of heart disease. Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Robinson were over from Britt to spend Sunday. Andy now tips the beam at 206 pounds and is as jovial as he is fioshy. He is having a good trade and is doing well at Britt, all of which he deserves. Mrs. Daniel Burgan and daughter Abbie from Chicago are visiting in the city the guests of Dr. M. H. Hudson and B. P. Reed. Mrs, Burgan is a cousin to Mrs. Hudson. Her daughter is a prominent real estate broker. That are delighting the masses and stirring up would-be competitors, and everything new and fresh; THAT'S WHAT TALKS. A clean stock 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. We have no room for that "trash." We sell first-class goods at lower prices than any other dealer on this continent. WE ARE THE TO OPEN ATLU VERNE. A Special Train will Carry tlio Crowds to LuVerno for Dolllvor's Meeting TonlKlit. Congressman Dolliver's opening meeting in the county will be held at Lu- Verne tonight, and Chairman Sessions has arranged with the Northwestern for a train to bring back all who attend from the north. The expectation is to make this a big gathering and all who can attend can take the 6 o'clock train south returning after the meeting is over. Let everybody turn out and give our south end town a visit. And we show our superiority by opening with the largest stock of Clothing and Gents' Furnishing Goods ever brought to Algona. We will be pleased to have all attending our Fair call on us, as we are anxious to show you our goods and prices, and make you our friends.

He is confined to his room and is nav- wg a bad time of it. Judge Thomas is in excellent health at present and looking better than on his previous visits to Algona.
