The rate to Chicago is now §16.80 for the round trip. Miss Dora Weber went to Deansville, Wis., yesterday. Misses Jessie and Mary Smith are expected home today. W. C. T. U. meeting in reading room on Friday at 3 o'clock. The only excuse for this weather is that it is •' good for corn." The Des Moines News says Andrews 1 Opera company " is stronger than last season." It will be in Algona early in July. T. M. Whitman reports the sale of $6,000 of apple trees in this vicininy this spring. This is bound to be a fruit country. A little girl at Fred. Fuller's last Wednesday has caused a genial expression which pervades the whole UPPER DES MOINES office. Children's day will be observed at the Methodist church next Sunday morning ot 11 A. M. The services will be given by the Sunday school. W. P. Giddings has sold his fine farm in Wesley to Mark Hill of Cerro Gordo county last week. Mr. Hill is an excellent addition to the county. Young Barge was taken to Independence Saturday. He was dangerously insane. His sister is still at Bancroft and will not be taken away for awhile. N. J. Skinner has some rattle snake rattles from a snake killed at Chamberlain, S. D., by a young lady who has a claim. The young lady evidently has the proper nerve. Those who remember Winkel's running mare known as the "Mule" will be interested in knowing that a granddaughter of hers is considered the fastest young horse in Chicago. A merry-go-round is in town, Atlantic refuses to license them. The Des Moines Capital says: "The merry-go-round is the means of sending boys and girls to hell in a circle." J. E. Paul is back from Spencer to •take Jas. Chapin's place in the John Paul lumber yard here. He is proving to be a valuable man in the lumber business, and we are glad ho is to be in Algona. . The two train conductors who went for each other with coupling pins at Algona a short time ago, are both laid off for 30 days. The company gave •them that time for reflection and to let their blood cool. W. E. G. Saunders, manager of the Blairgowrie farm near Emmetsbuvg received a neat present lately from the owner, Wm. Shaw Adamson. It was a clean section of Palo Alto's best land. We congratulate. Although the largest crowd ever seen in Algona come in to see the circus, it was remarked by several that it was the most orderly. Not a half dozen showed any signs of drinking and they were not boisterous. Fred. Stockwell has charge of the •Osborne exhibit at the world's fair. He and Rome Woodworth are at the southwest corner of the agricultural huilding. Their friends from Kossuth will find them there. The Baptist Young Peoples' union -will hold their second annual experience social in the lecture room of the church Saturday evening at 8 o'clock. Ice cream and cake will bo served after the relation of the experiences. One day last week Geo. C. Call sold acre lots north of town to Ed. Donovan, Wm. Dodds, Mrs. Kuhn, J. W. McMa- •hon, and Mr. Clarke. Some of them •expect to build this .year, and all expect to soon make Algona their home. Miss Anna Ward was brought from Bancroft last Thursday and adjudged insane and sent to Independence. She is a sister of Ed. Ward, Bancroft's former furniture dealer, and of Mrs. Reynolds of Armstrong. Her case is a very sad one. Lee Homing's pot of gold is missing. The attorney is now at Minneapolis but will return. He thinks he knows who got the money but no arrests have been pried open the money drawer securing about $30. Perry St. John had the shop in charge, but was sitting in front and heard nobody* enter. The empty drawer was left outside the shop. Next Sunday Rev. Fred P. Haggard of Dubuque will preach in the Baptist church morning and evening. Bro. Haggard is a missionery elect for Assam, India. -He is a young man of more than ordinary tale_nt and will give us the missionery subject fresh and vigorous. No collection will be taken. All are welcome. Mike Winkel is home on a vacation, being one of the Northwestern officials who belonged to the brotherhood which struck two weeks ago. Mike says they all went out down on his line and are now all off duty. He does not speak in complimentary terms of the head officials of the brotherhood, who bungled the whole matter, and who are doing nothing now that they lost all the men their jobs. Kossuth county lost the first standard bred horse ever brought here Monday when Exile was shipped by Hennessy of Davenport. J. W. Wadsworth brought him in nearly nine years ago, and his colts are now pretty numerous. He is past 15 years old, but sold for a pretty good figure. Exile was well bred and his blood has given a good start to some fine bred stock now and for the future. A Soxtonite named Kirby was bound over yesterday by Squire Clarke in $500 bonds to meet the grand jury on the charge of selling a poor quality of beer to the people over there. He waived examination. A bottle of his "temperance drink" was on tap, and the experts and non-experts all agreed that it was beer. Squire Raymond says he is going to keep all such places closed in the county. A young man named Leo Smith was arrested at Swea City, Monday charged with piling ties on the track of the new railroad at that place. The engineer saw the obstruction in time to prevent a wreck. Smith is a discharged employee. 'Squire Raymond and E. H. Clarke are at Swea City today attending the preliminary hearing, Mr. Clarke representing the company for Geo. E., who has been engaged to assist in the prosecution. While performing on his pole at the show Monday a strap broke his hand was looped in and the actor slid from the tent top rapidly and fell some 20 feet to the ground. Dr. Morse happened to be near and examined him carefully finding his wrist sprained but no evidences of broken bones or internal injuries, It was a heavy fall being practically from the peak of the tent, and the wonder was that he was not killed. Al. Ringling estimated the crowd Monday afternoon in the tent at 7,000, and he should be a good judge. The tent holds 12,000, and 16,000 have been accommodated. It costs $3,000 a day to run the circus. Of this 55800 a day is spent in advertising. There are 72 men ahead of the circus putting up bill paper, and each sheet costs eight cents. The circus in America today is the fruit of advertising. What other institution could come to Kossuth .at an expense of §3,000 a day and escape the sheriff? It is reported that our old pioneer postmaster, up at Armstrong, E. B. Campbell, 1ms been replaced by a new man. The Courier intimates that it is because he did not move the office to the town. This cannot be because he was one of the first to go to the city. Mr. Campbell began the office many years ago and was always a faithful and obliging official. Unless he wished to drop it his removal is one of the disgraces of the wholesale jobbery in country, which both parties seem to think indispensable. The State Register gives a lengthy notice of the opening of a week's engagement by the Andrews' Opera company at Foster's Monday, It says: " The Andrews' Opera company last night made a good beginning for the week, and there is every reason to believe that the engagement will be successful, financially and otherwise. It deserves to be and Des Moines music lovers emphasized their approval of Manager Foster's efforts by giving the company a large and fine audience. The company is an organization that is deservedly popular with Des Moines' summer audiences." , D. A. Haggard was on the jury at Fort Dodge in a peculiar case. A man had been arrested for sending obscene literature through the mails in violation of the postal laws. It happened, however, that the letter had been written to the man's wife, and the question was whether there was any law to prevent a husband and wife writing anything they pleased, The judge left the matter to the jury, which could not agree on a verdict, and the man was dismissed. Mr. Haggard was for conviction on the theory that the man who would write such a letter as was before them ought to be sent up no matter who it was to. Some years ago a brakeman on the Minneapolis and St. Louis road by the name of Gorman was hurt at LuVerne. The damage suit was tried at Algona and the.jury gave the plaintiff a verdict. The case was appealed and the supreme court sent the case back for a new trial. At that time the railway attorneys were changing about at Fort work and course of study which he thinks will be an improvement. The schools have beentdoing good work and will continue in that line. The city well having again got into the papers it seems proper to suggest that something ought to be done to it pretty soon. The town now has no protection from fire, and every day an examination is postponed is a day lost. Something is wrong and whatever that is should be known. We believe that the general sentiment is for a thorough investigation by competent well men and, if a water supply can be had, that it be got at any expense. The city can better afford to put §1,000 into getting a well than to attempt to move. Webster City put a 300 and 200 foot well into the bottom of just such a well as we have. It is likely that a half dozen 30 or 40 foot wells in the bottom of ours would give a full supply of water for all time. Why not find out? Something should be done, and the quicker the better. Ringling's circus cnme to Algona many years ago pulled across the country by teams, Monday it came as one of the really great shows on the road. It was in all respects the best show that ever visited this county and compares with Barnum's favorably. Its street parade was on a big scale, its entire equipage was now, its menagerie was full, there was no padding orfilling in in the ring performance. The Arabs and Japs were first class, while the lady riders, the trapeze performers, tumblers, aerialisls, clowns, and all were the best. No gambling or faking of any kind was allowed. The Ringling brothers by long experience and hard work have gone to the front in the circus line, and today they have as clean and as interesting a show as travels. We hope they will keep Algona on their route! Their next crowd will be larger than it was Monday, and that beat the record.

Dorward went to Rock Rapids to attend the North Western Soldiers' association Tuesday. SUNDAY SCHOOL CONVENTION. Hat Conformator, The high school commencement Friday evening passed off with eclat, ns Prof. Gilchrist would say. It wns the first in the hew opera house, and it showed the stimulating influence of good surroundings. It was on the whole the best ever yet given by the high school. The orations were not more original nor meritorious than at several previous commencements, but the merit was uniform and the delivery was without mar or blemish.. Wo doubt if ton students in any school in Iowa inarched out and In clearer voice, with bettor etage presence, and in a move attractive manner entertained an audience than did the members of class '98, who with their blue and white colors stood under the good old motto "The End Crowns the Work." The programme opened with a finely rendered violin solo by Miss Kate Smith, and an invocation by Rev. Davidson. Edith Reed then gave a thoughtful oration on Education, Mabel Smith told the story of Circe and Ulysses, and from it drew a valuable lesson on some modern enchanters, Hugh Hod rick talked very interestingly on the modern mses of Electricity, and May Edmonds from the subject " In Ourselves are Triumph and Defeat" drew some valuable lessons. Following the first division Misses Randall and Tweed sang a beautiful duett. Mat tie Haggard then in clear manner showed how liberty is being abused in some of its modern uses, run- into mere license. "The Sweet Girl Graduate" was a most original and excellently handled subject by Lulu Clarke, whose delivery fully equalled the other merits of her performance. Nilla Barr with "Only" as a subject in a very entertaining, series of illustrations showed how important a word it had been in history. George Horton reviewed the death roll of the past year among the great men of America, fay- ing thoughtful tributes to Whittier, Curtis, Brooks and others. A much applauded piano solo by Mrs. Seeley ushered in the last two speakers. 'Maggie Haggard under the subject of " Shadows" pictured the passing panorama of human life, picking out the lives of a few of the world's great as of special note, and winning hearty applause by her fine delivery. Kate Lantry closed with the class prophecy which was an interesting prediction of great honors to all of the class, excellently written and excellently delivered. The song which followed by Maud Cowan, Ruby Smith and Frank Tellier was a fitting close to the pro- gramme, being one of the most pleasantly rendered songs lately heard in Algona. A continued encore failed to secure any response, and Prof. Dixson in well chosen words turned the class over to Mr. Clarke, who in his usually felicitous manner gave them some wholesome advice and their diplomas, and Rev. Bagnell pronounced the benediction. The opera house was crowded, the programme was rendered without a hitch or break, the orations were short and crisp, the class was made up of Algona's brightest and handsomest young people, and everything joined to make an enjoyable evening, and to make the public proud of our schools and of the work they are doing. All honor to the public schools and to the class of '93. Postponed Until Monday. Taylor's sale, which was to take place Thursday, the 15th, is postponed until Monday, June 19, as there are some parties figuring to take the whole stock. If it is not taken by that time everything in the store will be sold at absolute cost. In the meantime goods that are in small quantities will be sold at a large discount. Some special bargains in clothing, Do not fail to see the remnant counter. Bo sure and remember the date the sale commences, and if you do not want any goods yourself tell your friends. I must make short work of selling out this stock as I cannot stay much longer from my business in California. Yours truly, T. BARLEY. FOR real estate time loans at the vei-y lowest rates, make inquiry at the Kossuth County bank. BRING in your faded hats and have them colored at the weaving and dye works. W. T. Cunningham.—52 Nine out often men cannot get a new hat that is comfortable. It is not exactly the right shape for their heads. The Hat Conformator is designed expressly to overcome this difficulty. We have secured at a Great Expense one of the best Hat Oonformators in the world. It costs you nothing to have a new hat fit like an old one. We have the largest assortment of Nobby Hats in Northern Iowa. The New England, Co. P. S. We will shape any hat bought outside of our store for 25 cents. Dodge and in some way forgot the case. It came up and Geo. E, Clarke secured a verdict of $8,000. Nothing farther was done about it until the full time for new trial had expired, and then a few weeks ago Mr. Clarke went to Minneapolis with his $8,000 judgment and requested settlement. Last week R. M. Wright was up from Fort Dodge to look the matter up, and failed to find any way to get out. It looks as though the 'company would pay the whole amount. The school board have elected teachers for the coming year, selecting two new ones, Miss Jessamine L. Jones and Miss Jordan. Miss Jones graduates this week at the state university, and will be a valuable addition to the corps. Miss Jordan comes with the best testimonials from other schools, and will undoubtedly be also a very successful teacher. The corps stands now: Prof. Dixson, Miss Cramer, Miss Decker, Miss Durant, Miss Maud Smith, Miss Chesley, Miss Tweed, Miss Campbell, Mrs, Horton, Miss Pettibone, and the two new ones. Miss Randall remains as music teacher. Prof. Pixson is made. The "conviction remains that Lee had money, his friends think $5,000, and no money can be found. Henry J. 'Winkle and Miss Nellie Sirnpkins were married last Thursday and took the evening train for Chicago, where they will remain a few weeks. The marriage was performed at Mr. Simpkins' fine home by Rev, Dorward. Many congratulations are extended. Geo. E. Clarke is in Des Moines taking a railroad case from the state to United States courts. A shipment beginning and ending in Iowa passed over the state line in transit into Dakota. The question is whether such shipment comes under the state or inter-state law. It is reported that some one makes a practice of stealing flowers and plants from the cemetery. If anyone is caught at it he will prosecuted. It is a pretty mean individual who will steal anywhere, but when it comes to stealing flowers from a grave meanness does'nt characterize the act.
