We have added many new and attractive lines to our already immense stock of mens,' boys/ and youths' clothing, furnishing goods, etc. The winter of our discontent will be here before you know it.

This is the prize fish thus far. The Cowles building next to Stough's s being painted and fitted for the new cigar store Ed. Fitzsimmons is putting 'n. The city council are having gravel jut on the grade east of the Blackford lill, which will insure a hard road next spring. Peter Johnson is arranging for a big dance in his new shop next week Friday night. All the Scandinavians are "nvited. M. F. Miller, for some time in J. J. Wilson's mill, has gone to Sanborn to take charge of an elevator. He is a *ood man. Several hundred dollars have been wagered in town the past week on governor. The bets are even between Wheeler and Boies. There will be a special meeting of Prudence lodge, No. .205, on Tuesday evening, Oct. 27, at 7:30 o'clock sharp 'or work. By order of W. M. The distribution of New York orphans occurs next week Friday at the jourt house. Everyone who wants a ihild should come in on that day. Alex. Wilson's little two-year-old child was buried Friday at Bancroft Alex, grew up in and about. Algona, and many friends will mourn his loss. It is rumored that the St. Jo. parochial school is to be abandoned, and that the sisters are to return to Dubuque. J. H. Mathers is our informant. A telegram to H. Hoxie last Saturday announced a nine-pound daughter in J. O. Beaver's home at KnoxviUe. Mrs. Hoxie has been visiting there some weeks. A brakeman on the Milwaukee, named Win. Demo, smashed his fingers near Wesley last week while switching. He was brought to Algona and Dr. McCoy fixed him up. The Simpkins brothers sold their half section farm last week for $6,000 cash. Geo. E. Boyle in Lotts Creek sold his at .$27 an acre. Another farm in Lotts Creek brought $25. The Episcopal ladies have secured the Wigwam and will serve dinner today to the assembled multitudes of "the hungry, and as you may well believe very thirsty,"" as Curtis once said. Every farraar should hear Van Houten at Burt •<*)• Wesley. He is the republican candidate for lieutenant-governor and a farmer at Lenox. He will speak from the farmers' standpoint. Postmaster Starr has been out the past week inspecting the other post- offices of the'County, and will report to the postmaster general. We have no doubt he found everything all right. The Methodist young people have organized a literary society, and will give a public entertainment Saturday evening at the church. The pro- gramme promises a pleasant evening. F. S. Stough and Dr. Morse are going to breed some fancy mastiff pups from their $75 imported full-blood. Everything that is thorough-bred from Shetlands to elephants flourishes in Kossuth. Visitors to town today and tomorrow can make more money by reading our advertising columns in this issue and visiting the stores, than by hearing political speeches. A number of new announcements appear today. This office is now the proud possessor of the biggest honest single potato on exhibition. Arthur Taylor brought it in from Lotts Creek, and it weighs three pounds and six ounces. It isn't a whole hill of potatoes stuck together, but a good big fat-looking tuber. It is said that the Aurora well company object to being docked for the time their man lay idle here because his tools did not arrive. That is all the good it will do them, for the council have enough to pay for without putting up big wages for idleness caused by their own neglect. Miers & Greenebaum, the Peoria cattle buyers, have been in Algona buy ing this week. They got 200 feeders from Devine, 150 from Rain, some from Peter Young, and Hunt, and also bought the Chubb herd. Cattle are bringing low prices, $3 being the top notch for feeders. There was a good attendance at the H, A. Clock sale, Monday, and Dave Haggard sold nearly everything at jood prices. The sheep brought the jest returns in proportion, which shows that sheep are being appreciated on the farm. Mr. Clock's brother was present and is visiting him. The many friends of Miss Lenette Wilson will be pleased to learn that she is home again and able to be around. All effects of the paralytic shock have nearly passed, and she is rapidly gaining her normal condition. [Us not likely, however, that she will be able to go to Des Moines to take her classes this winter again. The Courier intimates that our information about D. H. Hutchins' visit to Sac county is rather shaky, and says lie has not been there for two years. Mr. Hutchins, as The Courier is now Informed, has been to Sac three times in a year past, the last time within five weeks. That last time was the one we referred to when wo said u lately." The lecture on China at the Methodist church was well attended last Thursday evening, and was very interesting. The Chinaman could pronounce very well, but occasionally ho got tangled up in our plain United States idioms, until his sentences were curious enough. Ho had a fine light and his views gave vivid pictures of Chinese life and customs. R. E. Davison of Portland says his son is still very low, suffering from an abcess. Last spring at the agricultural college he had the measles, and went out too soon, getting a relapse. Only his vigorous constitution enabled him to got well enough to bo brought home, and since then he has barely clung to life. His doctors think ho will recover, but it is a slow process. Wo understand that it is being told over the county as an argument against Mr. Stephens that ho withhold levying an execution on a chattel " mortgage foreclosure and let the debtor have a little time until ho could pay off his debt without losing his property. Wo do not know that there is any truth in the story, but if it is true we fail to see liow it can hurt Mr. Stephens. It is the first time we ever heard a complaint that an official wasn't swift enough in closing in on unfortunate debtors. The State Leader has the following on our colonel, getting him located at Cedar Rapids this time: "Col. S. S. Sessions of Cedar Rapids, whose besetting sin is his abominable politics and prohibition tendencies, occupies an elevated perch at the Kirkwood, and howls for his pie and chicken three times a day. Col. Sessions will be on earth after election, but In a badly dilapidated condition politically. However, the democrats will permit' him to remain in Iowa and have a whole lot of fun." S. S. Sessions was in Des Moines last week with F. M. Tnylor arguing the tree claim contest case reported two weeks ago before the land commissioner. The evidence did not quite satisfy the court and more will be taken bo- fore Clerk Brunson on Nov. 4. Nov. 6 the evidence will be taken in the Pat. Kain case, and both cases will be presented for final settlement at Des Moines Dec. 2. Mr. Sessions says other contests are likely to follow, as tree claims have been investigated by interested parties. The night the LuVerne boys sat up till 3 o'clock a. m. for the freight train and then were put off, Ike Harrison made a steal on a box car and got his ride home all right. He laughed a good deal at the others who had to walk back to town and wait till next day. But now that the company is paying the boys for their little inconvenience, the name of our popular south- end Nasby don't seem to bo on the list, and we would like to know how he feels about it. Was that ride really so pleasant now that it is all overs' The teachers of the Algona schools go off on an educational trip Thursday evening, and will spend Friday in visiting the Marshalltown schools. Marshalltown has the reputation of having the best schools in the state, and the visit promises some new ideas of value in the conduct of our own. The ambition of the teachers here is to have the best methods in use, and they go to this considerable expense willingly for the purpose of learning if they can improve their work and how to do it. During Friday the scholars will enjoy a holiday. The Bancroft Register notes the fine improvement in R. M. Richmond's Farmers' and Traders' bank. He has put in new counters, enlarged the room, repainted and refitted the building, and the Register says, "needs not hesitate to invite any of the noted men in foi fear of adverse criticism. Everything is as neat as you could wish it, and R, M. is to be complimented for his good judgment in securing such delightful results in the looks of his property. We might add, right here, without mixing matters, that he has the corner building built to the full length of the lot, 130 feet, and the north and west is all fronting on the two leading streets in town." Among the visitors last Thursday to attend the rifle shooting contest were Cant. Young, Lieut, Lee, and Soargent Smith from Webster City, and Capt. Kirk, Quartermaster Schemmerhorn, Corporal Taufelmeier, and Privates Taufelmeier and McGoun of Mason City. The target practice continued all day, some very good scores being made. As the shoot was not competitive no record was kept and the comparative excellence is not known. Among our home boys Edens made 2c out of 25 at 600 yards, Chubb 20, anc Ward 10. At 200 yards Jones made 10, Cooke 18 and 19, Chubb 17, and Walsh 17. The visitors complimented the ride range, and enjoyed a pleasant day, besides making their stay a pleasant one for Algona. The " home innards" having told all the old editors of Iowa what they don't know about running a newspaper, jacked up its contemporaries because their advertising columns look too fal to suit it, and published a lot of balderdash about Kossuth county farmers, is now devoting its editorial energies to denouncing the bored subscribers who are rapidly having their names stricken from its list. The last man who was able to get free from the only real news' paper in America is described as "brindle headed," and what will come this week remains to be seen. We would suggest that all who are anxious to drop the "innards" should go to gather, it might throw that institution into such a spasm that H would be un ible to*emit any articulate sound, nnd all would escape alive. The Yellow Springs, Ohio, Citizen ias a column report of the marriage of ?rank W. Dinglcy nnd Miss Emma Cordingley. Miss Essie acted as maid of honor and many visitors were present from a distance. The Citizen says: The most beautiful wedding service that has boon held in Yellow Springs n years occured Tuesday evening at .he residence of Mr. ana Mrs. John Cordingley. The contracting parties were their charming and accomplished daughter, Miss Mane Emma, and Mr. Frank W. Dingley, a prominent drug- fist of Algoua, Iowa. A sufficient number of invitations had been issued to comfortably fill tho parlors of their •esidence. Flowers in profusion taste- 'ully arranged, loaned their luster and elegance to the happy occasion. Conspicuous among the floral decorations was a largo pyramid of ferns and palms covering the entire side of the room in which the ceremony took place, while slightly to tho right of this and some distance away, stood a largo banana jlant spreading its magnificent branches in luxurious similitude."
