Also that pearl buttons, with the exception of some of the smaller sizes, are being sold today cheaper than ever before. And this, too, in the face of the fact that the McKimey bill did raise the tarriff on that article. The costs in the Kidd case from Clay county, tried in the district court here recentlv, amounted to §316.20. The county clerk has make a transcript of the expenses and sent it over to our neighboring county on the west, which will have to foot the bill. A musical entertainmentand woman's congress is announced for Thursday evening, Oct. 27, at the Congregational church. The programme has been furnished us, but the advertisers are on top this week, and nearly everything has to give way for them. We are under special obligation to Hon. Jno. G. Smith for a copy of the official Iowa map, just issued by the secretary of state. It was ordered to be printed by the last general assembly and is a valuable article in any well-regulated business house. The work of excavating for the mains to be laid on Thorington street began Monday, and before many days.the residents oTthat thoroughfare will be supplied with city water. It is understood that nearly all the property owners on that street are to become patrons. The average head of the family puts of this county. man, J.

Tt was reported last we a«r^3Sf£"*W try and had not yet returned. We don't approve of betting in any form, but _we know of several people who are willing to bet that that man will never come back. The flambeau club has been out of powder since the LuVerne meeting two weeks ago, where they worked the flambeaus so vigorously that the supply was exhausted. Now, however, they have a new supply and plenty of it, so that when they go to Burt there will be nothing lacking to make the torchlight procession a brilliant success. Lem. Stockwell laid this paper under obligations last Wednesday by placing upon our table a half dozen of large and beautiful apples raised in his own orchard, from trees set out only eight years ago. They are a fair sample of what is now being done all over this part of Iowa in fruit raising. The quality is known to be first-class, for we have tested every last one of them. The county central committee is in receipt of information to the effect that Hon. M. D. O'Connell of Fort Dodge will address the people at Algona on political issues on Thursday, Oct. 27, He will also speak with Dolliver at Burt on Wednesday, Oct. 26. These will be great meetings. Mr. O'Connell is well known as an able and entertaining speaker, and all will want to hear him. "It is a good sign," said a man to us the other day, "to see subscribers to a county paper coming to the office and making complaint that they had failed to get a copy of that week's issue," He thought it looked as though those patrons know a good thing when they see it, and want to see it as often as possible. There is something complimentary about it which we had not before thought of. The reporter noticed on the streets last Saturday a man afflicted with what the doctors call "Locomotor ataxia," in aggravated form. The man was a most pitiful sight, and was making an effort to get a living by the sale of some small articles. Dr. Gat-field says it the second case in this county that has come to his knowledge. The other was Philip Grose, a pioneer of Kossuth, who passed away a few year ago. The glass blowers have a tent pitched on State street. The best part of their entertainment appears to be on the outside, where once a day, or oftener if necessary, their trained donkey ia brought out and exhibited and the proverbial small boy exhibits his lack of early training in horsemanship by trving to ride the beast, in each instance being pitched off, to the infinite amusement of .the crowd on the street. It's a great show. Uncle Jimmy West died last Friday nieht. He was a familiar figure on our streets until about three years ago, when he became afflicted with paralysis of the brain, and since that time has been practically helpless. He came to this county some years ago and engaged in farming, being the owner of a splended farm four miles west of Algona. Jn later years, however, he has lived in Algona, where with his wife he moved. Mrs. West died about two years ago. She was a sister of Win. Galbraith. NO children born to them, Pecewed was t Ware of age, at the home of Hiram Wright. The funeral services took place on Friday last, Rev. Dorward officiating, and were largely attended. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. This has been political week in Kossuth county. Congressman Dolliver spoke at Whittemore last Wednesday night, at Bancroft, Ledyard, and Wesley the nights following in order. At each of these places he had large audiences, and there was more interest manifest in political issues than for years before. Largo delegations from Algona attended all of these meetings, and Burt turned out 125 strong at the Bancroft meeting. Mr. Dolliver said he had spoken in no county in the district where there was greater enthusiasm manifest than in Kossuth. Paste it in your hat that this is a republican year up this way. There is no mistaking the signs of the times. What came near proving a fatal accident happened at the residence of J. St. John last Thursday. His little boy, two years of age, while playing about the cistern, fell in. There was water to the depth of six feet in the cistern at the time. A playmate who saw what had happened ran for help and found O. E. Minkler, who let himself down into the cistern and grabbed the little fellow, apparently as ho was going down for the last time. The boy was unconscious for some time after being taken out, but Dr. Pride succeeded in restoring him, and now he is all right again. It was a pretty close call, and the family feared for a time that death had claimed its own. Landlord Rutherford has begun the work, which has been in contemplation for some time, and which, when completed, will result in the moving of his new building to the lot adjoining his hotel on the west. We understand it was his intention to put it there in the first place, but the frozen condition of the ground last fall prevented his carrying out his plans. The new building is used for a sample room below, and the upper part is done off into sleeping rooms. In order to put this building where it will eventually stand it was necessary to cut away one of the old landmarks of the town, a box elder tree which, according to the best calculation that can be made, has stood there for 38 years. It seemed like parting with an old friend, but it had to go. Notice. I expect to go to California in a few weeks for the winter. I want every one owing me accounts and notes to come in and settle same before Nov. 15. They will be left with an attorney for collection after that date. 30t4 J. J. WILSON. C. L.

He went to Rapid City and Hill City, both in the Black Hills, and from there over into Wyoming.
