It is now about three months since we commenced the greatest Clothing sale ever held in Algona. We have astonished hundreds with our GREAT BARGAINS, and no dealer has been able to make even an HONEST ATTEMPT to compete with us. That pervades the camps of would-be competitors, just because our superior facilities enable us to give the Public a suit or overcoat they have to ask $15 for, lor the low price of $8. They try every known scheme and device to reduce the volume of our business . It woir t do, gentlemen; you can't do it. The public know a good thing when they see it. You may rely on one thing for certain, that whenever any dealer pretends to undersell There's deceit in it somewhere Besides all this, the question of style, perfect fit, and well-made goods is of the greatest importance. Old ^oodsLrr^ Jt will pay yon to come a long distance to the NEW ENGLAND CLOTHING HOUSE and buy according to your own judgment. We can't, afford to mislead the public with artfully-worded, aS^ement^ Our great house ^ Honest, straight-forward business principles will win the people's confidence.

The conjunction of the Iowa Road Improvement association with the agricultural officers for a session is an idea that will be productive of the best results. Gov.

The body of water supports a large humber of steamers, sail boats, and crafts of various descriptions, and many Omaha, Sioux City, and Council Bluffs families have cottages on its shore. The Chieago and Northwestern, which is the only road running directly through the town, is also making strenuous efforts to fix that place as a permanent camping ground. W. M. Hamilton of Lake View was at the governor's office and at the adjutant general's headquarters. Mr. Hamilton was dispatched by his neighbors to lay their offers before the proper officials at Des Moines. Henry James, a young man employed in a lumber yard at Mllford, was drowned last week while skating. He and four or five others were on the ice. The others stopped to rest but he went skating ahead, and the next thing they heard of him was a strangled cry for help. They rushed to where he was struggling to get out, but 15 feet away from the edge of the ice. They tied overcoats together and threw him one end of them, but he was so badly cramped that he could not grasp It and sank. They recoveredJhe body. Last week's issue of Clarke's Horse Review contained a handsome cut of Storm, 2:08i, the black pacing stallion owned by H.H. and B. P. Kirk of Mason City.

In the new organization things have not been going along smoothly, and upon the stopping of his pay he retaliated by quitting the pulpit. The new organization will doubtless be short lived and most of the flock will return to the old church, over which Dr. C. C. Smith of Detroit, Mich., is now presiding.

Kershner and Henry Stebbins' boy made a gruesome find Sunday morning about half way between the Call and Blackford bridges near tho river. It was the body of a middle aged man lying covered with snow. Kershner saw an overshoe, and giving it a kick discovered that thore was a foot inside. After recovering from the first shock the boys returned to town and Henry Stebbina hitched up and brought tho corpse to the court house basement, where Coroner Sheetz took it in charge. A jury composed of W. H. Nycum, G. S. McMurray, and P. L. Slagle was called and they at once made an investigation. No papers were found identifying the deceased. One document was a recommendation of his skill as a workman, but was not dated and no names were given. Another was a receipt for watch repairing at Chicago, and still another bore a Milwaukee heading. Beside these there were 90 cents in money, a knife and a piece of tobacco in the pockets. At first many believed that the dead man was Asa K. Smith, as he was about the same in height and in personal appearance, but Monday Chris. Bell from Whittemore said it was a man named Streit, who bought land in Garfleld. Chris. Heise was then called and also expressed the opinion that it was Streit, and the Dorweiler brothers also identified the remains. Streit, it seems, sometime last March had a misunderstanding with his son and left the county, borrowing some money of Mr. Heise to get away with. The theory was that he had returned and was going to his home. Coming to the Call bridge and finding it open, and no ice on the river he had turned to go to the Blackford bridge and when half way there had fallen dead. Dr. Sheetz says that from such investigation as has been given it appears that he died a natural death, IJe evidently fell before the cold weather began for his overshoes were muddy, where he had walked through the fields, and then he was under all the enow. The way he was found lying indicates sudden death. He was stretched at full length on bis back, one hand clutching a clump of bazle brash,, /£hejre we^-e no hruUeij pin him, and he looked fa bo, in Ml aj a good suit of clothes. There is no evidence that he had frozen or had suffered from exposure. Notice was sent to Mr. Strelt's son as soon as it was surmised who tho dead man was, and he came in in the afternoon and at once identified tho corpse, and took It home for burial.

E M, Stephens is home from Des Moines, where he went to attend the law suit resulting from his' search of a female pick pocket at the state fair. He says the jury stood on the first vote ten to two against the woman, but the two argued that the costs would fall on Polk county If she was beaten and finally they all agreed on a small verdict. Th.e judge instructed squarely for the defendants, and the case will be appealed. This Is only one of the threap cases as each of the women sues by herself. The other two come on next month and Marsh will be in Des Moines for them. Marsh and the two who are sued with him are going to see the matter out if they carry every case to the supreme court. They know they had a tough gang and are not going to pay a cent of costs unless they absolutely have to. A year ago the report of the state dairy commissioner showed that Kossuth had shipped 1,265,154 pounds of butter. This year the report shows an export of only 075,875 pounds. The export of the whole state has fallen in like proportion, there being a loss this year of over ten million pounds. Last year Kossuth was the twentieth county, and this year is the twenty-fourth. Among our neighbors Palo Alto has shipped 641,025 pounds; Emmet, 132,680; Humboldt, 557,615; Wright, 671,244; Hancock, 206,894; and Winnebago, 647,865. The falling off In the state product Is explained by the fact that during the spring and early summer months the country roads were nearly impassable on account of washouts and mud, and the farmers could not get their butter to market. In addition to this the wet pastures Impoverished the milk of the cows. The Fort Dodge Messenger Interviewed Bro, Ryan on postofflces last week, and his remarks indicate that the popular choice will win in this district. The Messenger says: "J. J, Ryan was down from Algona over Sunday. He was on bis way to Scotland, S. p., to look after bis land^nterests at, When asked ft bout the re_._,. _.,— ^e ygunxjs oj the press " • at " not promised to support any of the candidates for tho postollico, nor has ha been nslced to, and if they had asked him it would do no good at thin time, as it is too early yet. When the time comes he will support the candidate who has tho democrats and the people of Fort Dodgo to back him, and he does not caro who that is. Mr. Ryan says it would be useless for him to do otherwise, as there are not politicians enpugh in Iowa to got Cleveland to appoint a postmaster here, who has not the support of the people of this town."
