J That new boy at Dr. Morse's is in the Fdbctor's opinion about as fine an addi- ]on to Algona as has been made lately. »j;e is a bouncing boy and he and his {mother are doing well. Mrs. Ander*" : is down from Bancroft attending i A. J. Bowman, a worthless sort o sky man who loafed around Al go jail at Clarion note. W. B defend him this particular case there is reason to believe he is not guilty. A game of ball for blood will be played Friday afternoon between " Bricktop's" nine and the school boys the same as played a week ago. Then the town boys won. The only change is that A. F. Dailey will play with the school nine. The game will be close and exciting. , And now Bennett, the returned mi bird, saye he was helped out.

Cossuth is as free from them as any :ounty in Iowa. Andrew White and Miss Stella Hudon we^e married at Bancroft Sunday. Mr. White is the manager of the Elmore Mill company at Bancroft and tfiss Hudson is a sister of Lew Hudson, nd well known in Algona. The ouple start out with every prospect of i happy and prosperous future. Boardman Bros, are evidently mak- ng a stir among the butter men down lear Livermore. The Gazette comes tut and announces that they are paying •ery high prices for cream, and intimates, that they are not doing as well "iy their patrons up this way. They iay good prices everywhere. Garfield township has the honor of urnishing butter for the Iowa dairy xhibit at the world's fair, and Wright & Son will send four tubs, one a month 'Cginning with one today. Iowa can nake the premium exhibit easily, and mong all the tubs she will have there vill be no better than from GarOold. Harry Dodge's two legged dog was n the street yesterday attracting a good audience. It has no hind legs and ts hind quarters are not fully devel- jjed, so that its body slopes from its loulders by almost a regular line to the ioint of its tail. It balances on its fore egs and can walk and run quite easily. The advertising car for Ringling's ircus Mondtiy was draped in mourn- ng. It is said to be for an athlete who' ivas traveling with the car, and who, vhile sleeping in a hotel last week, got p in his sleep and turned a summer- ault out of the window, falling some 30 eet to the ground and being killed in- tantly.

They all went out and four hours after 'ound out that it was a mistake, and came back to work. But the company las decided that it wants men who will not quit on so slight a pretext, and is jetting a new lot. It is reported that :he agent at Ledyai'd is one of those eft without a job, and also the operator at Burt. Children's day services next Sunday in the Burt P'resbyterian church at 10:30 a. ra., conducted by Supt. Bacon, and in the Irvington Presbyterian church at 2 p. m., conducted by Supt. jloyd.

All friends of the ittle people are cordially invited to be Dresent. Will Barge, a young man from the north, is before the insane commissioners today for violent insanity. His case and that of his sister are very remarkable. As the story comes to us a religious revival in the Barge family worked both to the point of insanity. She is in Bancroft and will not be sent away unless she becomes violent. The boy, however, cannot be controlled. The Barge's are highly respected people in their neighborhood. Friday is to be a big day at Bancroft. The Odd Fellows of Algona, Emmetsburg, Estherville, Livermore, LuVerne, Plover, Wesley, West Bend, and Burt are to gather there for the annual reunion. The business meeting begins al ]0 o'clock, the banquet will be held a1 ":30 p. m., the parade at 2 p. m., and 3 o'clock a public meeting at Jefferson ball. Bancroft is a good town 1 to go to and will leave nothing undone to make the occasion enjoyable. It looks as though the city well would again become, a boon to the newspapers Either it, or the pump, or the sane screen is acting badly, for already the water supply is failing and only a few feet of water are in the stand pipe The general feeling seems to be tha the screen has become corroded or filled and will not let the water in But whatever the difficulty, something is wrong. The whole water sup- 1 - SO or $60 a piece for each horse before liey would let them go and take back he notes. It is reported the money vas paid and the horses recovered, but t proved an experience to the farmers bey will not soon forget.

Bert Edmonds was in the big Pullman bicycle race at Chicago a week ago, in which 271 wheelmen started. I'he run was 17 miles of road from Van Buren street andj Michigan avenue to ullman, and the winner, M. Nelson, made it in 55 minutes and 44 seconds. ?he riders were handicapped, that is et back at the start, according to their 'ecords, and Bert was about one hund- •ed and fortieth in getting off. He :ame in thirty second in 67 minutes ,nd 47 seconds, having passed over 100 iders. The fastest time was made by vl. Nessel, 55:17, but his handicap kept lim from winning. In talking about be race Bert says he took an easy gait ind did not strain himself. comes from one six-inch pipe and a present the supply in that is decidedlj limited. The council are taking steps to investigate and something will ° done. The Estherville Vindicator says: is reported that several farmers in Den mark and Armstrong Grove township have been taken in on a horse deal. I is stated they sold horses to som strangers from whom they took propel ty statement notes, and the propert. described has proved to be some lane down in Florida. After making thi discovery the farmers went to Algona where the strangers had a car of horse ready for shipment. They deraande their hprses but the shtu-pevs dewande HUNTIM HIDDEN TEEASURE. iee ITorniug's Garden and Grounds Yield no Pot of Gold — Foul Piny Suspected. What promises a romantic search is now in progress for the presumed hidden wealth of Lee Horning. Diligent digging has brought nothing to light as yet, and those interested intimate ,hat a suspicion that someone has been ahead of them, is warranted. During the past week every bit of Lee's garden las been spaded over and examined, ;he house and all the outbuildings ihoroughly overhauled, and all without any trace of any money being found ixcept the one dohar he had in his socket. And yet everybody believes ihat he had money. It is reported that ie was arranging a loan of $600 the day Before he died. When Lee made a loan t is said he took the borrower to his louse then went out somewhere and came back with the money. He never itept his money in a bank. He had some secret hiding place for it. Any number of rumors are afloat at present, ;he leading one being that the money has been secured by somebody. Lee's Jnale is as sensational as his livin, career. His life and adventures soun ike Captain Kidd, and oriental romance has nothing to outdo the past week's digging in his garden for the pot of gold. Lee was an exotic, a rare ind luxurient buccaneer transplanted 3y fate to this prosaic prairie soil. PINE LUMBER AT COST. J. A. Hamilton & Co. Will Close Out All Tlielr'Plne Stock.

Why, bless you, there is just as much difference in stores as there is in people, When you go into a nice, clean, well-kept grocery house you see the difference at a glance, The goods are fresh, free from dirt, inviting to the eye and palate alike. How is it in an old, dingy, barracks-like place where things are thrown together in a chaotic jumble? There is absolutely no comparison to be made between such a place and Our Elegant Stock and Fine Room in the new State Bank block, on State street. If cleanliness is akin to Godliness, then surely we are in it with the best in all the land. Added to our fine grocery stock you always find the the latest and handsomest in Crockery, Queensware, Lamps, Lamp Goods, etc. An inspection tells the story. <Tew State Bank Block, Algona, Iowa. W.
