THE CITY. Townsend & Lnngdon advertise apples. Read Galbi-aith's new advertisement, this week. The Bancroft schools have a vacation next week. It was a cold day yesterday for—everybody. Uncle Steve Pottibone was moving into town Monday. M. L. Clarke and family are going to California this winter. The chimney sweeps are helping to make ready for winter. Chas. Nicholls of Burt is the lucky and deserving recipient of a pension, of $6 a month. J. C. Blackford was threatened with an attack of bilious fever Inst. Friday, but is about again. Now that politics is subsiding and winter coming on, Robinson's stoves will attract attention. ' Twenty-five teachers were in last Friday and Saturday to attend examination before Supt.' Carey. D. S. Ford's house has taken new paint to itself the past week, and now shines in handsome colors. The Young Ladies' Foreign Mission- ary.society will meet with Mrs. Black on Saturday, Nov. 7, at 3 p. m. Geo. Galbraith also has a fancy canopy top carriage for his Shetland, and has added a fine turnout to the list. : The Congregational young people are organizing a literary society which •will give public programmes during the winter. A carload of the finest eastern apples comes to W. F. Carter this week and will go quick. All who want the finest fruit should read his advertisement. Willis Hallock and family started last night for California, with their household goods. He says lie will, go into the newspaper business again when he gets settled. E. W. Hnckman has fixed o_ver his shop and will lath and plaster it for a residence. He has been so busy with outside carpenter work that he will not keep a shop longer. Over one hundred Scandinavians gathered Friday^evening for the ball in Peter Johnson's new shojj and enjoyed a pleasant party, which lasted joy .tin l 4 in the.mpr.ning. We are reliably informed that a beer joint is or has been open in Wesley. A word to the authorities'is suffiotont. So long as we have a law let the county see to it that it is enforced. John G. Smith tendered his resignation as a member of the city council Saturday evening and it was accepted. He will have matters of greater importance to attend to this' winter. The council have left it to the well committee to get a machine to tap the water mains for all who want water. No action has yet been taken looking to the extension of the mains. August Sterzbach says that the Boardman creamery is doing more business this year than it was last year at this time. They handle only gathered cream and unsalted butter. The willingness of the people of the .country to provide homes for the orphans brought in Friday encouraged Mr. Trott, and he will probably bring a new lot next spring for distribution. The cause of the sudden cold and strong wind last week was a big blizzard in Dakota. That is a sad but forcible reminder that old Boreas will soon be whistling snow flakes amongst us here. A. L. Seeley's brother, who was here last year, is out again and will spend the winter. Since leaving Algona he has handled eleven carloads of iron scraps and junk, and will buy here and ship. W. M. Christian has been out from his Illinois home for some weeks, and last week disposed of his Irvington farm at a fancy price. He says he shall come again next spring and buy a new farm. Henry Straw, brother of Mrs. Geo. E. Clarke, has located at Garner and went last week to open his jewelry store. He is a genial and efflcientbusi- ness man and will be well liked by Garner people. C. M. Doxsee sent his brother a.t Monticello a full-blood Plymouth Rock rooster Monday, advertising that he would crow for Wheeler this morning. The box was finely decorated in red, white and blue bunting. : Agent Hedrick. received the circular of the State Railway Employees' club urging all railway men to vote for Peter A. Dey. It was sent all over the state at the last minute to defeat Campbell for railway commissioner. At the council meeting Saturday evening the final settlement with Harrison & Hawley for the water works was arranged. There is a. difference of $75 to be adjusted, and W. B, Quarton is representing the contractors. The new bank was delayed in opening Monday by the failure of the new safe to arrive. Otherwise everything was in readiness. Collie Chubb goes into the bank as assistant cashier, and will prove a popular young man in the bank. ' A good audience greeted the combination programme last Thursday even* ing given by the various soldier societies. The chief features of the pro- gramme were addresses by Rev. Davidson and Mrs. Horton, and a social 'reunion, i . The story is told on some Britt bloods that* they drove over to Algona Sunday , .with a Bftpk full of beer bottles and engaged a room for a celebration. Before they began they went ou,t to take ift the eights, and when they got back someone had feloniously and surreptitiously smuggled the beer. The visitors kicked vigorously but the beer was not forthcoming, and they drove home sadder but soberer. Geo. E. Boyle was over Saturday and reported that Whittetnore is to have one or more brick blocks next spring. Whittemore has been having a genuine boom, and new buildings this year have made a new place of it, to say nothing of what is promised. All the Iowa City students who are voters Were home yesterday. Both the republican and democratic committees paid the expense of students to come and vote, and the school excused them. Students are not allowed to vote at the places where they attend. The Spencer Reporter has the following item about our old-time professor who lost his hand: "Geo. E. Reed, formerly a teacher in the Algona normal school, has been engaged to teach in the Cheney district, Riverton township, commencing next Monday," J. C. Frank announces this week in plain and unmistakable letters that he will close out his stock of clothing. He informs us that ho will quit business here, as he has an opportunity to go to a city. While his stock of clothing is going some bargain's will be offered to the public. There have been frosts in August but twice before this year since 1850. In 1858 frost came Aug. 28, and in 1863 frost came Aug. 25. In 1859 frost came Sept. 2, and in 1873 it came Sept. 8. The latest frost in the spring since 1850 came in 1876 on June 21. None of these were killing frosts. The local campaign wis enlivened by a Circular in German giving what purported to be the speech made by B. F. Reed at the rink. Hort Neborgall and Will Stebbins were among those referred to to substantiate what was said. The circular was peddled extensively in the German townships. A new deal has been made at the Thoringtoh house, and it i& now in charge of Hudson & Turner of Charles City, who have leased it of H. K. Hess. The new proprietors are experienced business men, and ought to meet with good success in their venture. They promise to run a first-class house, and are a good addition to Algona's business men. H. A. Clock has sold his farm north of town to J. B. Willey, the consideration being $25 an acre. Mr. Willey is on the M. B. Chapin farm, but will soon be established for himself. Mr. Clock says he has no definite plan of leaving Algona, but that there was ho money in farming the way he had to do it. He likes this country, and all will hope to see him stay with us. A band fair will be given at Wesley tonight and tomorrow night under the 'auspices of the Wesley band in Grove's hall, the proceeds to go to the purchase of new instruments. A free musical entertainment will be given each evening, and the ladies will display fancy work and useful articles. At the close tomorrow evening a grand ball will be held. The boys have a good band and should make a big success of their enterprise. . Jas. Orr has just finished painting C. H. Blossom's house and feels reasonably proud of his work. There are five colors used, which Mrs. Blossom selected, and the combination is the result of Mr. Orr's artistic skill. The result would grace the fine streets of any city, and proves that Algona has a first-class painter. He says this has been his best season, and that he has had all he could do, working mornings and nights. Over $500 was bet in Algona Saturday on the state election and on sheriff. No odds were given on either side. More betting has been done on this election locally, and everywhere than ever before. It is said that a quarter of a million was wagered in Chicago on the New York election. Some think that betting disfranchises voters in Iowa, but a prominent lawyer says there is no such statute, A better cannot vote in New York if challenged. The final meetings of the campaign were held at Burt Wednesday afternoon and at Bancroft Thursday evening. Van Houten was greeted by a big crowd at Burt and gave a rousing address; and McFarland had a fine audience at Bancroft. Our secretary of state is one of the clearest and most logical talkers on the stump, and ho gave the Bancroft people a good speech. Maj, Holmes was unable to reach Lu- Verne, and the meeting there failed up. Algona sent good delegations to all the meetings in neighboring towns, and those who went enjoyed a pleasant time.

Both Parties Claim to Have Won in the State in Yesterday's Hard-fought Battle. Wheeler Goes Out of Kossuth County with a Majority of 109 Over Boies. Smith (Rep.) for Representative is Elected in this District by a Safe Majority. Lautry (Dem.) is Most Likely Successful in the Race for the County Treasurship. Odds Are in Favor of Rcetl (Rep.) over Bertha Carey (Ind.) for County Superintendent. Stephens (Rep.) Defeated for Sheriff by Graham (Dem.)—Local Disaffection is What Did It. The Official Count Must Be Had to Determine Actual Results—It Was a Bitter Contest. Election returns from the state are coming too slow for tiny assurance as to results. The State Leader claims Boies' York is democratic, that Massachusetts is doubtful. No definite news will be had before tomorrow morning. Late dispatches indicate the election of Boles. In the County. The following majorities are reported from Green wood: Wheeler 7, Smith 6, Funk 7, Graham 52, Lantry 80, Reod 4. Ledy'nrd majorities are Wheeler 15, Stephens 5, Chipman 5, Reed 11. Burt majorities are Wheeler 61, Funk 59, Smith 36, Stephens 19, Chipman 48, Reed 8. Springfield gives Wheeler 8 majority, Funk 8, Smith 8, Chipman 9, Stephens 0, Reed 23, Rawson nnd Hollenbeck 8 each. > Buffalo gives Wheeler 18 majority, Funk 9, Smith 9, Chipman 3, Stephens 12, Reod 23. Fenton gives a democratic majority on stnto of 20. Why Ma]. Holmes Didn't Come. News: The central committee announced Maj. A. J. Holmes to speak In LuVerne on the 29th inst., but a telegram was received from Chairman Doxsee on Monday, stating that the date hnd boon cancelled on account of the sickness of Maj. Holmes.

At the hour of going to press the Register says: " Returns at this hour indicate that the vote on governor will be close with a probability that Mr. Wheeler will be elected by a plurality of from 2,000 to 5,000. He has made a steady gain over the vote of Gov. Boies in 1880 on returns so far received and the per cent, of gain is gradually increasing. First reports were from the towns and cities, which are more inclined toward Boies than the country precincts. At 1 a. m. this morning returns from 220 precincts gave Wheeler a net gain over the vote of Gov. Boies in 1889 of 595. All other candidates on the republican state ticket run ahead of Wheeler and are undoubtedly elected. No definite returns have been received at this hour from legislative districts, the intense interest on the vote for governor having overshadowed all other features of the election. Mr. Wheeler made a gain of 106 votes over Gov. Boies in Waterloo, which is the governor's place of residence. Returns have been very slow in coming in, due largely to increased vote cast. Up to midnight hardly more than one-eigth of the 1,941 precincts of the state had reported. In these Mr. Wheeler has made steady gains."

Our town is full of land seekers most every day. Chas, Genrich purchased ton acres of land near the Northwestern depot of Mr, Musolf this week. R, V. Scott has moved into the house recently vacated by Dr. Lacy, The farmers are very busy these days plowing and husking corn, which makes our streets pretty quiet.

Chas. and Frank Ford are building a hay barn at the M. & St. L. yard for storing hay. Politics is all the rage these days. . ^ Perniciously Active. The Chicago Tribune says that political hostilities have broken out at the zoological gardens in Philadelphia. Among the animals are two infant seals, who were christened about a week ago Baby Ruth and Baby McKee. Previous to the christening they were on excellent terms, but since that time they have manifested a pernicious act CHEAP FLOUR! In order to reduce our stock of flour between now and Dec.

In onu of their encounters the other day Baby Ruth beat a retreat to dry land, but was followed up by Baby McICoo, who whacked her with her linn and thon plunged bade into the water. Baby Ruth was plucky and full wed her assailant, who dived out of sight. Incautiously sticking her head under to see where he had gone she got a rap on the nose. She then crept up to the edge of the pond and lay with her nose close to the bricks. Buoy McKoo saw his opportunity and made a rush for her, when Ruth suddenly sprung upon him and bit him in the neck. At last Baby Mc- Kco caught her in the water, chased her all over the pond, drove her ashore and up into a corner, whore ho pounded her until she cried. At this juncture the keeper appeared with their food, and they made a race for It, which Baby McKeo won by throe or four lengths. After dinner the fight was renewed and kept up until dark. Thus hostilities have boon going on daily, Baby Ruth getting the worst of ovory encounter. A PURE sugar syrup only 30 cents a gallon at W. F. Carter's. Attention, Ladies! Cloak Sale !
