Notice the advertisement of the night school. A. L. Hunt and Cora B. Kltmie are licensed to wed. A lot of land lookers got off at Algona last Thursday. An infant child in the Scoville family died Monday evening. Market prices are: Wheat, 80@80c; oats. 20@23c; corn, 46c. Sunday evening services at the Methodist church at 7:30 o'clock. Agent Vesper had sold over 100 tickets to the state fair yesterday noon. Now that we have a well, how would it be to wet down the streets betimes.! 1 J. B. Winkel has purchased the lot and office occupied by Drs. Morse & J/Pride. Everybody must be haying these days. The few who come to town are after help. It is said that last week was the coldest week in August that Iowa has seen for 20 years. J. J, Wilson says one man has brought in wheat that went 30 bushels to the acre. Olof Johnson has eight acres of millet this year which goes 15 tons of hay. That is a pretty fair record. A dance is announced for Friday night. The canvas will be down and good music will be furnished. The State .Register notes the sale of Abdallah Belle by Seth Warner to S. Mayne of Bancroft at Independence. The literary entertainment given Friday evening :for the reading room was highly enjoyed and netted the society over $18. Ledyard has .-secured A. A. Sifert to take charge of the schools there this fall. The town is lucky in getting so good a teacher. x ?he Young Ladies' Foreign Missionary society will meet with Mrs. Black on Saturday, Sept. 5. A full attendance is desired. ' Bert Barr, who is sergeant in Company F, lias qualified as a state sharp- of three less comfortable home on the bluff at the west hall, end of State street. Thbs. That toot race our LuVerne correspondent promised came off at Liver- thore, but unfortunately Lu Verne's man was not in it. Livermore won the race and is evidently elated over the result. If Lu Verne can't down him, some of other towns should take him in band. The Second warders have a republican cliib. It organized at the wigwam last Wednesday evening with Thos. F. Cooke, president; W. B; Quarton, vice president; C. M. Doxsee, secretary; ahd Av Sawvell, treasurer. All together constitute an 'executive com- mitte Rev. F. M. Smith, who resigned his pastorate of the Baptist church here, is now located at Missouri Valley near Council Bluffs. He drove overland with his horse last week, and Mrs. Smith und family follow. Rev. W. H. Dot-ward of Carroll will occupy the pulpit a week from next Sunday. In the midst of all the boom in horses W. F. Carter seems to hold his own, and in addition to his Shetland colt now has a herd of Indian ponies, a lot of horses, and a full-blood Clydesdale stallion ho has recently brought in. He traded for the ponies out west, and for the other stock at Mason City. In response to a request for portraits of temperance workers to adorn the walls of the new temperance temple in Chicago, the local society decided last week to send one of Mrs. Mary Carter, who has been an active and efficient worker in Algona. As soon as the portrait is finished it will be forwarded. At a meeting of the reading room society, Friday, Miss Lenette Wilson recited Samantha Allen's remarks on women in the Methodist conference. Her rendition of this choice piece of humor at Des Moines last winter won her high compliments from the city papers, and was enjoyed by those present Friday. The democratic county convention to select delegates for senatorial and representative conventions is to be held Thursday, Sept. 17. The senatorial convention meets at Emmetsburg Sept. 22, and the representative convention in Algona Sept. 29. Our friends—the enemy— evidently intend to put candidates in the field. The annual meeting of the W. C. T. U. of Algona will be held in the reading room on Friday afternoon, Sept. 11, .at 3 o'clock. Officers will be chosen for the coining year and other business of importance will be transacted. All members are urged to be present, and all who are interested in the W. C. T. some store rooms. If an opera hall is not put in by the new banking company they may fit their second story for a F. Cooke and Win. Walsh started for Muscatine yesterday. f the preliminary contest on the rifle r-angc begins today to determine who shall represent Iowa in the inter-state <»n- test. There are 27 contestants at Muscatine, and ten will go to Springfield. 111., where the final shoot occurs Sept. 7. Should our Algona representatives get on the stat« team they will go on to Springfield, and Capt. Cooke will go in any event, and be gone there and in visiting friends in Dubuquo some three weeks. One of the best improvements of the year is now in progress on the lots occupied by Peter Johnson's shop. He has torn down the old buildings and is beginning a new building which will be 20x58 feet on the ground and 18 feet high. The roof will be of iron, and corrugated iron sidinff will bo used. This will make the building practically fire proof, and an ornament to town. This corner was one of the old original business corners of Algona, and the fine building will bo a suitable reminder of the days when Smith Bros.' little rod store stood near by. Travel has at length begun over the now Blackford hill, and all who pivss that way will appreciate the service that has been rendered. The county has made this one of the best instead of one of the worst roads, and the board is' entitled to all credit. The cost has shooter, having a record than 20 at all distances. The question of interest now is which one of the various kodak owners is trying to save his money by taking several pictures on the same film. Thos. Henderson has a job of putting in two bridges -over Four Mile creek, and otherwise repairing the highways. It is said the work is badly needed. The Northwestern fair train is a vestibuled passenger:. They run it to let the people up here know that they have good cars on their other lines. Sumner Stebbins has begun a couple of sizeable additions to the house he lately purchased in the-west part 'of town, and will •soon have a comfortable home. D. D. Kenyon bought lumber at Paul's last week for a new house on liis farm north of town. He will build 16x26 with an addition 16x18, and another 10x12, which makes a big house. The pumping apparatus is in place in the town well and the test thus far shows that it furnishes 60 gallons of water a minute. That will supply the needs of the town for some years, P. M. Evans of Panola, 111., and a brother from Kansas have visited in Algona for several dn.ys returning to Illinois last night. The Illinois brother owns a fine farm and was out to see it. A new house is going up on the Button farm in Cresco, L. Nelson is building an addition, Russell Bamsey is putting up a big granary, and E. A. Fuller a barn. All got lumber at Paul's yard. Mrs. Bessie Starr Keifer will lecture on temperance at the Congregational church -on Thursday and Friday evening of this week. She is one of the best speakers on Che platform. Come and hear her. The city council met Saturday evening and after allowing alot of bills, fixed the tax levy at six mills for city purposes and two mills for water tax. This will make taxes a little higher till the water bonds are paid. It now seems as though Geo. V, Davis of Bancroft would be Mr. Smith's competitor for legislative honors. Mr. Davis is an old settler, and the democrats would be doing well if they can pursuade him to run on their ticket. Our horsemen who were at Independence say that a number of horse owners announced that they were planning to attend the Kossuth. fair, and would bring some good horses. It seems certain that we shall have some lively ' \yaces. Leonard Hohn is preparing to im* prove his home for the winter, and has O. and the reading room. This office has, thanks to G. W. Pangburn of Elmore, a sample from Kossuth's champion field of wheat. The farm lies near Elmore and 100 acres in one field yielded 2,600 bushels. The sample sent shows a very high grade of wheat, and the lucky owner has made his stake in one season. Who has any figures to beat this record with? It is reported that "Uncle Steve" Pettibone has sold his farm west of Algona to some Illinois men, getting for his own eighty and an eighty belonging to Misses Josie and Jennie Pettibone $27.50 per acre. Uncle Steve's health has not permitted him to work hard for some time, and he will take it a little easier from this on. He has one of the finest looking and best farms in the county. The facts in the reported trouble Dr. McCormack had with the United States revenue department are that he had dispensed whisky to some of his patients without a license, The revenue officer heard of it and visited him, and when he learned the facts granted a license, Dr. McCormack paying the usual penalty for delay in taking it out. The doctor did not know that he had to have a license in order to use liquor in his practice, Our old Algona merchant, Chas. •Stinson, is again in trade at Sheldon. He went into a bank, but from the Mail we learn has bought a store. The Mail says: "It seems quite natural to see Mr. Stinson again behind the store counter, and Mail readers will welcome the return of his advertisements to the columns of this paper in much the same spirit that they greet an old friend. Mr. Stinson is a good merchant. He will get his share of the trade and keep it." Alex, Dorweiler confirms the report that he and Henry Thompson have purchased the Henry Munch store at Whittemore and will take possession at once. This gives a fine opening to two rustling young men, whose success is already assured. Alex, will leave his position in Jas. Taylor's as soon as he can get away and Henry will quit the creamery business at Whittemore at once. Both are well known and experienced business men, and we wish them good luck in their venture. Another change in Algona real estate this week gives promise of Algona's next year's boom. Wm. K. Ferguson has bought the lot owned by Frank Winkel, which has J. B. Winkel's office oil it, and will build a two story brick in the spring. He and H. Ho*ie build together, giving Algona a been more than was talked at one time, but a much more thorough job has been done. Surveyor Hutch ins also deserves due credit for using his influence and skill in securing this radical change. Every man who has occasion to haul to town from the west ought to feel thankful for the agitation which has resulted in this much needed and well performed piece of road work. A number of horse experts gathered at the Northwestern depot Saturday to see the trotting stallion brought up from Independence by John Winkel, and the standard mare bought by S. Mayne. Both wore from the best stock put up at the great sale which was held with the races, and both were bought very low considering breeding and merits. Winkol's horse has a record of 2:28, which puts him in a fast class, and is a fine looking horse. We understand he will trot at the county fair in the free-for-all. Mr. Mayne's mare is with foal to a horse whose fee is $150, and the colt will be something to talk about if it has no l>ad luck. The Republican complains that its local contemporaries have said nothing about its proposed plate "innards." Inasmuch as the change was being made to get up a cheaper paper and reduce expenses, THE UPPER DES MorNES thought silence very complimentary. It had no desire to call attention to the fact that its contemporary was carrying too much sail and was about to cut its reading space down to smaller limits. As to the merits of plates vs. patent insides the readers will have an opportunity to decide for themselves by comparing the Republicans "innards" with those of THE UPPER DES MOINES. One reading will satisfy the most skeptical. Last week THE UPPER DES MOINES had the pleasure of giving its readers another of C. P. Dorland's always enjoyable letters, and this week Miss Eva Whitney, our popular school teacher, tells of her eastern trip. Next week we shall publish an interesting letter from Horace Mann, who has also been in the east. We do not usually boast of anything connected with our work, but it is a matter of satisfaction to recall the number of bright and spicy letters and articles our columns have been the means of furnishing the public, all from the pens of our own home citizens. THE UPPER DES MOINES is something of a protectionist, and it prefers a good letter from a Kossuth citizen to even Bill Nye's plate matter, and a home farm discussion to even the best from some outside politico-farm bureau.
