Smith will put a new set of Fairbanks standard scales in place of the old ones. It is a needed improvement. . Aleona 1 s world's fair visitors are mostly hoine again. All agree that the dedicatory exercises were a stupendous affair. Algona was appropriately decorated In honor of Columbus day, and most of the business places were closed during • the exercises. Regular meeting of the W. C. T. U. on Friday at 3 p. m. An earnest invitation is given to the ladies to attend these meetings. • Every day like the present takes so muctf more money out of the greedy coal combination. Let us be thankful for small favors. John G. Smith and Frank Nicoulin made a day of it at Ruthven last Thus- day, where they succeeded in bagging a fine lot of ducks. Albert Patterson is still on crutches, the result of a sprained ankle. A horse fell upon him, and he has a bad foot, which may trouble him for some time. The regular meeting of the Social Union will be held on Friday evening of this week. There will be papers by Mr. McElroy, Mrs. Wheeler, and Miss Reeve. A party of hunters consisting of Henry Weaver, Peter Winkel and others got 140 ducks at Union slough last week. The duck crop seems to be plenty this year. • The regular election of officers in the Good Templars'lodge will be heldm their hall Friday, Oct. 28. All members of the order are requested to atr tend. Begin at 7:30 sharp. Ladies who contemplate buying a cloak will bear in mind that GalbraUh & Co. will have a fine display here about about Nov. 2, in charge of the agent of their cloak house. Gillie Rutherford last week removed the plaster cast from the leg of his driving horse, broken some weeks ago, and says the animal will be all right again, except so far as appearances go.

The addition to the barn is for the accoi " ' " new improvements. This office acknowledges at the hands of Mrs. T. H. Conner receipt of several fine specimens of potatoes, raised on their farm in Seneca township. B. F. Clarke is the renter, and these samples show that he is attending strictly to business. As a matter of fact they are veritable " whoppers." T. B. Eslick and E. M. Gatchell of Lehigh were in Algona last Saturday looking for business locations. One wants to establish a drug store and the other a furniture store. It is understood they have arrangements under way which will eventually locate them here. This paper welcomes them. We have been shown some sketching done by Miss Louise McCoy for the Minneapolis Journal which gives pleasing evidence of her artistic ability. Algona's students abroad are all making their mark, and none are more gratified than the friends of Miss Louise in Algona to know that she is achieving distinction in an artistic way. The Whittemore Champion says: One of those terrible accidents, which are too frequent nowadays, occurred last Friday about 12 miles southeast of Whittemore. While a fifteen-year-old son of Mike Tirgh and his sister were riding along in a road cart a flock of chickens flew up, and in attempting to get a shot at the birds his gun was discharged, the shot taking effect in the boy's breast and throat, killing him almost instantly. O. C. Walker tells this story on himself. He recently rented his farm east of town to a couple of Englishmen from Illinois for a term of five years. However, before he closed the contract with them he had a desire to know how they stood on political questions, and so he put the question straight to them, prefacing his question with the statement that he didn't want any "free trade, wild-cat" men on his farm, and if they were democrats they might just as well get out at once, for he would have nothing to do with them. But they both assured him that their politics was all right, they were republicans clear through. And the contract was made on this understanding. It's " the same old coon" with O. C., and the enemy will get neither aid nor comfort from him if he knows himself. We find in the Whitewater, Wis., Register this item of news: "Bryan J. Castle, the eloquent and witty Irish-American, whose speeches in the northern and western part of the state have created a furor of enthusiasm wherever he has gone, will speak under the auspices of the republican club at Bower's hall on Thursday evening " Thus after many years we get track of the man who started the first democratic paper in Algona. Bryan J. Castle came here from De Soto, Wis., with a handful of old printng material and began the publication of the Algona Times, democratic to the backbone. His career was short lived, however, and he left the town between two days. The office fell into the hands of Horton, Jones & Co., who revised the poll ics of Further Search Revealed Several Bones of a Skeleton—Speculation as to the Facts. Johnson expect to go to the Baptist state convention this week at Mason City. One fare and a third for round trip ticket for all. Dr. Henson of Chicago speaks Thursday evening. ' W. H. DORWABD. Thos. Bennett, the butcher, found a human skull on Sunday last, in the timber south of Algona about a mile, across the river. His slaughter house is in that vicinity, and while there last Sunday a cow got away from him, and in the chase he was taken across a deep ravine, in the bottom of which he found the skull. He brought it to town, and the curious have speculated upon the probabilities of the case since that time. The skull is undoubtedly that of a white person of about middle age. Nenf *he top is a hole which looks as t, ,gh it had been made by being struck 1 ith some blunt instrument, doubtless during the life of the person. Several teeth are still intact and the skull is in a fair state of preservation, indicating that it may have laid where it was found for several years, though how long it is not easy to say. Inquiry of some of the older settlers here furnishes no clue, as no rcepl- ection is had of anyone hereabouts disappearing mysteriously. In the interest of learning all that can be known about the matter Dr. Garfield, Thos. Bennett, and a reporter for this paper drove on Monday to the spot where the skull was found. It is in a deep gulch perhaps a hundred rods west of the river. There the party made diligent search for other portions of the skeleton, and after scraping around among the thick body of leaves and rubbish that cover the ground, their efforts were rewarded by finding several other bones, including the pelvis or hip bone, two bones of the arms, several ribs, and a portion of the vertebra. Also among the bones were found a pocket knife and ashirtbutton. This was the extent of the discoveries. All indications point to the probability that the person was either killed or died from some other cause that violence and the remains were not buried. the ollection of the ^nds subscribed a lor Joneses vu., w "" »*••»•"", — ' : ., the paper and changed the name to the Algona Republican.

ItJllUU CfclJVl U11V3 L V/»•"«"•*••**•• ii w-v -- — Near the spot where the skull was found is the burrough of some wild animal, perhaps a fox or wolf, and near the mouth of this were found most of the ribs and small bones that were picked up. A very reasonable theory is that the remains were devoured by some carnivorous animal, as the bones were much scattered and the small ones all near the opening of this burrough. Any number of theories 'can be advanced, but more information than is at present attainable must be had in order to enable anyone to speculate with any degree of accuracy. NOT DOWN ON THE BILLS. A Columbian Day Performance -with Lots of Fun for the Boys, but the Outcome Was Not Altogether Satisfactory. There was a Columbian day celebration at the fair grounds last Friday afternoon that was not down on the bills. The fact that it was not well advertised doubtless deprived many from becoming active participants, yet there were in the neighborhood of fifty people present, some of whom enjoyed themselves, while others didn't. The occasion was a running race between Colvin's thoroughbred and a horse belonging to a stranger, but about which a good deal more was known after the race than before. It was the same old story of a " ringer" being run in on us, and Algona once more bears the disgrace of being taken in. The race was for a purse of only $10, yet this is small consolation in view of the fact that we eot cleaned out. It is just possible that a depleted exchequer cut some figure in the case and was a reason why more of the " root of all evil" was not lost At any rate some of our local snorts are out $10 in cash, but they more than have it back in experience, and that ought to satisfy the most fas- THE MORTUARY RECORD. William \Vnr<i. The news of the death of William Ward, which occurred at Garner on Monday, will be a surprise to most of our readers. It wits known that hehad been in ill health for some time, but his condition was not considered critical. The funeral takes place at Wesley at 11 o'clock today, and many of his old-time friends go from Algona to attest the esteem in which he was held. Though not one of the pioneers of Kos- auth county, Mr. Ward came here, as we remember it, about 1867, and has practically been a resident of the county ever since. In a conversation with him not long ago it is remembered that he said he reached this county with just two dollars in his pocket. The fruit of his industry and perseverance was the ownership of a splendid farm, north of Wesley, which he took as a homestead, and eventually brought to a fine state of cultivation. He sold the farm about three years ago, and has since been engaged in the hotel business. Mr. Ward must have been about 65 years of age. He was a man of much literary ability, as was attested by the many articles from his pen which have appeared in THE UPPER DES MOINES. In his family he was a model husband and father, and among his neighbors and those with whom he came in daily contact he was regarded as an upright, honorable citizen. Peace to his ashes. C. I. Harvoy. The death of C. I. Harvoy, a pioneer in Kossuth county, occurred at his home near Wesley last week Monday. The funeral took place on Thursday, Rev. Davidson officiating, and the remains were laid in the Irvington cemetery. Mr. Harvey was one of the men who came to this county when it was nothing short of a wilderness. Arriving here in the summer of '57 he joined a party which consisted of Ambrose A. Call, J. S. Sixby, Chus. Gray, and Sam Nixon, and together they had a log cabin near the foot of what is now known as the Chubb hill, across the We Are Pushed • For Room—— ~ * Our room is small and our stock is getting larger every day; so we've got to push our stock as fast as possible to make Room for New Arrivals of goods, and in order to reduce our stock we will sell goods at 25 per cent, less than our regular low-selling prices.

Mr. Harvey worked for Mr. Call more or less during the first part of his residence here. Later he took a claim over in Cresco township, where he made his home for many years afterward. He was a continuous resident of the county about 35 years, and at his death was about 62 years of age. He was a man of many excellent qualities, and leaves a large family, mostly residents of this county.

Report Comes that She Was Seriously Injured In ChlcaRO-Senrch- ln« for Mr. Graham. News by telegraph was received here on Monday that Mrs. J. G. Graham of Bancroft, wife of Sheriff Graham, had been seriously injured in Chicago, where she went to witness the world's air dedication, the telegram summon- ng Sheriff Graham to come at once. Jnfortunately Mr. Graham is somewhere in the west, but nobody here cnows just where, hence the impossi- )ility of getting word to him. However, it is likely that some of her relatives are by her side before this time, and she will have every possible care. She is a daughter of Clark Coffen. None of the particulars regarding Mrs. Graham's injuries are as yet obtainable. The telegram simply announced that she was badly hurt, and some days may elapse before all the facts are known in regard to what may be a serious affair.

Since the foregoing was written it is learned that the accident in which Mrs. Graham was injured occurred on the Chicago & Eastern Illinois railway, or " belt line," and was the result of disobedience of orders by railway men.
