By the new trains THE UPPER DES MOINKS now reaches Lu Verne, Irvington, etc., Wednesday. Win. Pettibone is up from Fort Dodge with his horse and will drive tomorrow in the 2:40 race. Frank Nieoulin is interested in a patent fence-making machine, and will push it if it is a success. Algona is now 14 hours from Chicago. When the Northwestern does anything it bores with u big augur.

We hope our readers will read the new time card of the Northwestern We would print it in red ink, if tha would add to its appearance. The democrats endorsed the farmers alliance candidate for senator at Em metsburg. His name is Painter, he resides in Dickinson county. Henry Durant says this weather wa beaten once in early years. He has i recorded in a book he has kept, that on Oct. 1, it was " too hot to hunt." A band of traveling Italians mad music on the street Saturday, and i. the evening played for a hurriedly got ten up but pleasant dancing party. A very fine improvement is bein t made these days on J.

Myron Schenck lost his first corn )lanting by cut worms, and drilled in a econd crop May 30. He has as fine a leld of good corn as one often sees. And still people talk about not raising iorn in this section. J. R. Laird says the Eldora county air can't be beat, and that there as lere the old family ticket hns been discarded. There as here everyone pays he/same as everyone else. That is Business and fair to all. Bert Edmonds is in a big bicycle race \i Des Moines, which began Monday. The run is two hours each night for six nights. Monday night Bert made over 12 miles in two hours and was over ihree miles ahead of the next man, *A little relief wns gained hist week rom the heat and dust by street sprinkling. A few enterprising peo- >le made a shake purse and had the vater let out, which judging from the smell was a good thing for the water. While up in Michigan last week Geo. . Clarke secured a piece of silver as it comes from the mines, and had it made nto a scarf pin. It is a handsome pin and as tasty as any jeweler could devise. le visited several mines while gone. The Paragon Theatre company played Stonday evening to a crowded house and will continue through tho week. They have a fine band and good all vround company. They have played at seven county fairs before coming here. Frank Jenkinson showed us some fine ion's egg gourds last week. They look .ike eggs and are used to fool the inno- :ent hen. We don't know whether the lens go out and make nests on them while they are growing on the vino or not. The Farmers' alliance convention to nominate a candidate for the legisla- ure comes at Britt tomorrow. It is un- jertain who they will nominate, but it is rumored that the democrats will endorse him, whoever he is and without i-eference to local option. Miss Myrtle Nieoulin graduates noxt Friday from the shorthand school she lias been attending at Mason City. She and one other girl have tho credit of attaining 125 words a minute in less time than ever before made in the school. She will return -to Algona. And now it is the fall of 1856 that is recalled by the early settler. While the winter of '57 surpassed anything since known, the fall of '50 was the most beautiful in the history of Iowa. Haymaking went into December, and frost did not appear till the new year. The state corn report is: "In the state at larger fully three-fourths of the corn is practically secure, and more than the usual proportion of the crop is being cut and shocked. About 25 per cent is yet more or less immature, and needs from one to two weeks to fully ripen." Our pastors returned from conference last eyening. Rev, Whitfield goes to Clear Lake, and Rev. Fhmnagan comet to Algona. He is a young man very popular. Rev. A. W. Luce to Bancroft, Rev. Eighmy to LuVerno, Rev. McBride to Wesley, Rev. W. V. Thompson to Whittemore, and Rev. E. A. Powell to Burt. A fact that is bearing down on the most inveterate growler like a hundred tons weight is the universal prosperity which has attended northern Iowa foi the past dozen years. Other sections brag of this or that, but for all-arouni big yields every year, where do they beat the great water-shed section o! which Kossuth is the ceijter? Bishop Foss of the Des Moines conference and Chaplain McCabe breakfasted at the Rutherford house this morning. Chaplain McCabe says tha Rev. Marsh is in a good position and is doing well, and will pay every cent o his financial obligations. He has oui old pastor under his charge in Chicago at work on his mission paper. The card of A. C. Scott this week calls the attention of our democratic readers to the fact that he is in the field for sheriff. Mr. Scott is wel known as a shrewd and active man, anc while our advice will not probably go far with the democratic gathering, stll we suggest that they can go farther and fare worse than by nominating Mr Scott. The "bloody Fourth" held Its caucu Monday evening at the sheriff's office and enlisted the active participation o 70 voters. This remarkable attendance and the close rooms probably inducec the exhibition of warmpth manifested but peace reigned after tho count o noses was made and it was found tha the Stephens' men numbered 88 nnd the anti's 82. Mr. Stephens was allowed to select the delegates, Gw. Call, | John Hohn, Frank Nieoulin, and J. B. Jones. At the school district meetings in Prairie and LuVerne the people will ask to have their territory down In the Corwith independent district set off again. This is a new move dictated by Mr. Clarke in tho case now ponding In the supreme court. Tf the Corwith district refuses,'an appeal will be taken, and so the question will bo raised in a new way. While standing at tho foot of his stairs Thursday noon B. F. Reed had a sudden fainting spell and fell into the arms of tho bystanders ho wns talking with. He was taken into Galbralth's store and revived, but is still suffering from the shock. Since having tho grip he has been suffering from nervous troubles, and fears that his heart may be affected. A happy marriage was celebrated Thursday at Mr. Wilbur's homo, his daughter, Carrie, and Bert. C. Lewis joining for life. Mr. Lewis Is son of C. E. Lewis of Irvington and a young man of excellent prospects, who now wins an attractive bride. The happy couple will make their homo at tho Wilbur farm which Mr. Lewis will have charge of next year. Algona was visited last week by E. Trott of Now York, who is bringing homeless children to tho west. Ho will be in Algona in about six weeks with a, doy.on or "more bo.ys and girls from six years up. While hero ho secured an local committee Jas. Taylor, D. D. Townsend, and .1. C. Blaekford to receive requests for children and to assist in distributing them. Full notice will be published of thotimeoftholrariival. Last week wo neglected to acknowledge a pleasant visit from 13. P. Blrch- er's little daughter, whose memory is a. marvel. She is but three years old and recited accurately two chapters from the bible, spelled many long and difficult words and finished with a campaign Bong for "Wheeler and Van Houton." She remembers everything with ease and is able to respond Instantly to questions about anything she knows about, and is a remarkably precocious child. A steam thresher belonging to Im- morfall and Jo. Studor broke through the bridge on Prairie crook near Studer's yesterday, and now lies embedded in tho bountiful bottom of that placid stream. Both men wore on It and injured in the fall, but wore able to bo In town. The engine is probably seriously damaged. It seems that they wore afraid to go over with tho tender and hat] uncoupled it, or it would have fall(in in on thorn and killed all who wore n the engine. Our old pastor, Rev. Marsh, had his ase up again at the Fort Dodgo confer- nce hist week. Tho telegraph report vns: A long discussion was had on ho case of S. P. Marsh, suspended by he last conference for carolews financial nanagement. The case was finally rb- errcd to u committee of ]3 for trial JIB allows: Robt. Glass, Wm. Whitiield, M. Glasgow, W. A. Richards, J. W. Lothian, C. B. Winter, T. E. Carter, V. F. Glonnon, F. E. Day, H. H. Hast- ngs, W. J. Johnson, O. S. Bryon, W. VI. Edgar. Rovs. Liscomb and Fifer vere appointed to represent the church. A very peculiar freak of nature exists n Ambrose A. Call's pasture, in two Siamese twin maple trees. A branch rom one has at some time become edged against th'o other and grown in- o it until now it belongs to both trees, in& only a close inspection will show vhich tree originally gave it birth. The trees are large and the connecting imb is about 10 feet above the ground, Mr. Call says he has seen an account of vnother such freak, but that it is not so leouliar as this one. Probably another as marked case does not exist, and curiosity seekers will be repaid by visiting ihese trees. Col. Sessions has had glory enough out of the state fair, and there is no •eason why a true story should not bo jivon away. While wandering about ;he grounds he regaled himself with a tune in one of the phonographs. It was a band piece and was progressing fine- y when a darkey yelled out to "look out dar." Our director dropped the /ubes and looked all around for the danger, and then for the darkey. There seemed to be neither, and when it dawned on his mind that the darkey's voice was part of the phonograph tune, lie looked around to see who was neai by and then quietly wont on to collecting rents. A new barn is going- up on J. II. Grover's farm in Portland. Mi 1 . Gro- vor now has 800 acres in one body and none to spare. He came to the county with no intention of stopping, to visil H, Y. Smith, and liked the country well enough to locate. Ho has accumulated a fine property by hard work and now enjoys his big stock operations. Ho was a pleasant caller last week, anc talking about Kossuth said it is tho poor man's placo. He has visited Wis consin, and Ohio, and Illinois nearly every year since he came here, anc each year he finds that for some reason we are doing better here than in the old states. Walter Howe Jones, a pianist jus returned from a long period of study ii Germany, where he was the pupil o Deppe and Mme. Carrono, is visiting with friends in Eaglo Grovo and hai consented to give a piano recital then Wednesday evening of next week, Sept 30, in tho opera house. Ho will fur nish an entertainment of high-grad< excellence, such as is seldom to be on joyed in this section of the state, Mu sic lovers, amateurs, aud professional will derive pleasure and inspiration from his interpretations, and reall; cannot afford to miss the opportunity The new trains on tho Northwestern make it very possible to be present on the occasion. The card of B, F. Reed this week an nounces definitely that he has decidei to accept a nomination for county sup erintondent If tendered him by the con vention. His success in that position before is km>wn to the county and wat rants his friends in strongly urginj him. The records showed that durini his term hisinstitutes were attended b, more teachers in proportion to th population and also to the number o teachers than in any county in the state He succeeded in arousing general en thusiasm among the teachers, and di , good work for the schools, and his nom lnation should it he made would uu doubtedly please ft large proportion the school patrons.

This may bo all right according to the befogged mental vision of Tho Hoptiblican, but wo poor dullards down this way think that a candidate who could not stand discussion would be a rather poor stick to tie to, and so are perfectly willing for tho good work to go on. Wo have a candidate of whom we are proud, and as for Tho Courier, it. hns said some very good tilings about Mr. Smith — more by far than The Republican has ever said of him since his nomination. A few more such idiotic breaks as The Republican made hist week would, tut a general thing, do more harm than any comment made by tin opposition papercouhl possibly do, oven if persisted in from now until November.

Tho two trains connecting with tho fast train at Eagle Grovo are accommodations, so that on this line wo now have four trains a day furnishing first-class traveling facilities south and east, and good connections north.. This radical change IB part of a policy which means tho development of a groat passenger route through the northwest. Tho new express train through Eagle Grove goes west to Alton, connecting closely with Sioux City, and then runs north to OakeB in North Dakota, making a short cut to Chicago from the Northern Pacific lino. This will make the Northwestern a great thoroughfare, tind the competition will compel bettor facilities on all linos in this section to Chicago.
