The covenant'meeting of the Baptist church will bo held next Saturday, at 3 o'clock. Ex-supervisor Nate Studer is very badly off again. He is having a serious siege of it. Mayor Boyle of Whittemore was in town Monday. He says everybody over west is going to the world's fair. Geo. E. Clarke has a handsome lawn fountain playing in his yard. It is refreshing to see it work on a hot clay. Mrs Harrison Burtis' brother, who •was injured in a railway wreck at Sioux City, had both legs and both arms broken. Mr. E. P. McElroy will preach in the Congregational church next Sunday ' evening. Subject, "Our Citizenship is in Heaven." Frank Nicoulin's fine new house is about painted and is very handsome. This is one of Algona's pleasantest and most stylish houses. The ladies of the Baptist church will serve ice-cream and strawberries, on Dr. Pride's lawn, Thursday evening, beginning at 6 o'clock. Corn has grown faster than ever bo- •fore in the history of the county during the past week. This is the best season we have yet had. The Milwaukee passenger train cut off an old woman's leg at Mason City, Monday, and a freight took oft a boy s leg at Garner yesterday. Mr, and Mrs. W. D. Ingham of Buffalo, N. Y., arrived this morning for a visit! Mr. Ingham is a younger- brother of W. H. Ingham. Misses Jennie and Josie Pettibone, Miss Salisbury, H. F. Watson, Mrs. G. B. Cole, Elmer, Frank, and Jno. Slagle went to Chicago last evening. Supt. Reed reports that there are now in process of construction twelve new school houses. Kossuth is well up to the front in educational matters. Marriage licenses have been issued to Geo. Johnson and Ella Pankuk, Louis E Hagg and Alma Peterson, Ed. Brady and Isabella Henry, John T. Osborne and Anna Thompson, Miss Coan has been engaged to give instructions in drawing in the public schools next year. By a rearrangement of work this is done without extra cost over the present wages paid. A A. Brunson leaves this week on his eastern trip and will not be back before the middle of September. He will arrive home before .the campaign is over and be here to assist. A late Algonian, named Matthews, has secured the famous two-legged dog, and is going to give a dog show with that and his trick add dancing dog. The two-legged dog is a natural curiosity worth seeing. The new vocalion is to be here before July 15 and an agent from the house will exhibit it in the church and give a concert, to be announced later. If the instrument is what is claimed, the Congregational society will buy it. L. J. Rice is entitled to rank as an architect. He planned his own house, and it promises to be about as neat as Algona has. Mr. Rice also has drawn a very fine map of Kossuth county, showing the owner of each piece of land. Mr E. P- McElroy will occupy the T)ulpit of the Baptist church during the vacation of the pastor. The services next Sunday morning will be'of a patriotic character. Subject of discourse: "The Imperilled Inheritance." All are cordially invited to attend. A Masonic saving and loan association was organized in town last week. A A Brunson is president; H. Hoxie, secretary; W. B. Quarton, attorney; and the First National bank, treasurer. The directors are M. F. Randall, A. A. Brunson, Dr. Morse, and M. C. Bailey. Our Kossuth pioneer John Conners is a defendant in a $10,000 libel suit at Livermore. He and Editor Miller are asked to contribute that to a rival hotel keeper. It all comes from an article in • the Gazette which made uncomplimentary allusions to the said hotel man. A Wesleyite named H. R. Tennant, who bought the Bacon store, lately made a bill of sale of the stock to the Swings bank. J. W. Sullivan has now in behalf of a wholesale house, attached the goods, and will fight the bill o sale. It will come in the next term of remaining uncalled for in the week ending June 24,1893: Mrs. Robt. Cameron, N. N. Clark, Miss Nellie Comstock, Martin Carbin, Miss Lizzie Erickson, Miss Mary Mitchell, G. B. Standish, Ed. Sloane, W. Z. Spiers, Jessie Shallhauer, Reno Walton. W. H. Reed has bought the Archibald house west of Ambrose A. Call's, and will soon become an Algona resident. 'He sold his hardware store at Corwith some weeks ago. He has not decided what business he will engage in here. He is a son of S. Reed, and a well known Kossuth county boy. Algona up to date is booked for the state declamatory contest, and the Odd Fellow and Masonic meetings, next year. If Brother Bagnell will add the camp-meeting to the rest, we will have the season well filled. If he don't, Al- ;ona should indulge in an old-time Jourth celebration just to keep her hand in. Seats for the opera will be on sale Saturday morning next, at 0 o'clock, at the following prices: dress circle, $1: parquet, 75 cents; first three rows parquet, 60 cents; balcony, 75 cents; gallery, 35 cents. The Andrews cost nearly twice as much as they did with their old company, and a full house should greet them. Mr. and Mrs. Geo. H. Rico and Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Ingham went to Spirit Lake Monday, returning yesterday evening. Mr. and Mrs. Rice went on to Chicago, and after a week there will return to California. This is Mr. Rice's first visit in eleven years, and the growth and improvement hero astonished him. He thinks Iowa in June is about as fine as any spot he knows of. The pew renting at the Congregational church has amounted to more this year than ever before and was much more promptly attended to. Rev. Davidson's fine scholarship and liberal spirit are appreciated. He is one of the very few of the leading younger men in the west, and Algona is fortunate in being able to retain his services. Mr. McElroy, who has been listened to with great pleasure on several late occasions, will preach at the Congregational church every Sunday evening during July. There will be no morning service, and the Baptists will join in the evening. The communion service will be postposed till Rev. Davidson's return from the east. Last week at Whittemore A. McCabe was standing in front of the butcher shop as ice was being unloaded. One cake broke loose and slid down so as to strike his leg, breaking it below the hip. In spite of the best medical care he died Monday. Mr. McCabe was an old man and a resident of Palo Alto. Dr. Pride was called to consult when the leg was set. "ThePress, the Pulpit, and the People," Sunday evening nt the Methodist church. A big audience of old friends greeted him and listened with pleasure to the effort. Mr. Hudson has just graduated at Iowa City, and Monday started for Boston, where he will spend three years in the Harvard divinity school. On the way he 'Will spend some time at Chicago, and during his course he'will visit Germany for_special work. Mr. Hudson is fully decided on the ministry and will make very thorough preparation. The Social Union club listened to a very excellent resume of the argument in favor of Bacon in the famous Bacon- Shakespere controversy, last Friday evening, from Col. Comstock. The room was crowded and the colonel spoke ably and entertainingly. Since going to Spokane he has given his time pretty largely to literary pursuits and especially to Shakesperean studies, and his address gives evidence of much thought, and labor in preparation. The colonel's old friends are always glad to see him in Algona, and enjoyed hearing from him. A very fine vocal solo by Miss Josephine McCoy added to the entertainment of the evening. Some forty Masons went from Algona to Emmetsburg Saturday, to attend the annual St. John's Day meeting, and report a most enjoyable occasion. The programme included a prayer by Rev. Davidson, a response to the address of welcome by F. M. Taylor, and a vocal solo by Miss Josephine McCoy, while Algona was selected as the place of meeting next jfear, and F. M. Taylor was elected secretary of the association. Among other features of the pro- gramme, was the address of welcome by Rev. Sanderson, and addresses by Senator Funk and Judge Carr, all of whom are highly complimented. Emmetsburg spares no pains in making things pleasant, and the meeting is said to have been the best yet held by the association. Col. Ormsby was chosen president for the coming year; Senator Funk, vice president; and Mr. McElhaney, treasurer. PEBSONAL MOVEMENTS. E. B. Butler and C. B. Matson go to Chicago soon. J. W. Robinson and daughters have gone to Chicago. Misses Anna and Cornie Ingham came from Chicago Friday. Dr. Geo. W. Ingham is expected from Olympia, Wash., this week. Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Quarton go to Chicago Saturday. Mrs. Kate Bassett came over last week from Sheldon for a visit. ALL WILL BE PATRIOTIC, The Eagle's Tail Feathers Will Be . Artistically Yanked All Over Big Kossuth. The Regulation Celebration to Be the General Programme—Where Exercises Will Be Held. Great Sample Sale. A good joke is told on one of our contemporaries. H. F. Watson went in to settle up his subscription and the editor after looking at him awhile asked him what postofflce in the county he got his mail at. Such is the fame of being a pioneer. Mr. Watson was Algona's first merchant, built, the first frame building put up on the tpwnsite, and the maple trees about his home are among the oldest in town. Rev. Bagnell will deliver the Fourth of July oration at Webster City, where extra preparations are being made for a big celebration. He was pastor there before coming to Algona, and is very popular. In the meantime he is at Belmond to conduct the singing at the camp-meeting, that being put in his charge. Although one of the youngest men in. the pulpit Bro. Bagnell is recognized as one of the leaders in northern Iowa. A letter from the Brunson boys states that they are meeting with success in Dakota, and that all rumors to the contrary are . unfounded. This seems to be sustained by the statement that they cleared §670 the week the letter was written, and took in $105 the evening it was written, in a town smaller than Burt. All their performers are with them, and they are doing more than they expected to at first. Wheeler, who was injured in the Thorington street ditch and who secured a judgment of §150 against the town, played third base for the Algona club last Thursday. In the trial it was feared that he had sustained permanent injuries, but his friends .will be pleased to learn that the danger is past and that he is in good trim. He is an expert ball player and one of the men who made the old Cresco nine invincible. Mrs. A. W. Moffatt and daughter Fannie have gone to Chicago. Miss Jacoby of Indianola is visiting Misses Ella and Emma Smith. Miss Flanigan was up from Eagle Grove last week visiting old friends. Mrs. C. B. Hutchins' father, Mr. Wilson, is making his home with her. Mrs. A. Rutherford and daughter went to Chicago last week to visit and see the fair. Among the returning visitors of the week Fred Bartlett from New York, Robt. Chrischilles from Chicago, and Miss Gertie Williams from Ipswich are expected. Algona begins to seem like old times with T. Earley running a store, Col. Comstock in town, A, L. Hudson delivering an address, and all the young people back again. It is a question whether it is worth while to go to Chicago or not. The LuVerne ball club came up last Thursday with colors flying, but was beaten in a rather poor game by Algona. The score stood 21 to 20, with the Algonians to go to bat. That is too many scorns, although under the new rules which put the pitcher back 10 feet further than formerly, scores are more plentiful in professional games than formerly. It is reported that a second game between the clubs will be played at Livermore on the Fourth. The city well at present is furnishing the town and keeping the standpipe full. It is likely that by pumping day and night the streets will again be sprinkled. In the meantime it takes an extra man and a big outlay for coal to keep the pump running. We understand the well committee is corresponding with various firms and will take some action. It is certainly in the interests of public economy to have the well fixed so that water can be had with les:i pumping. The Andrews Opera company will give the popular opera, ''Dorothy," next week Thursday evening, July 6. They come from Sioux City, where they play all of this week. They carry their own orchestra, have a company of 35 people, and are being praised in all the cities. The opera is one never given in Algona before, and it will bo put on in as good style as in Des Moines. This is an excellent opportunity to enjoy some good music and encourage only high grade entertainments in the opera bouse. A. L. Hudson spent Sunday with his sistor, Mrs. Randall, and at Rev. Bagnell's request delivered his lecture, Miss Elsie Hunt has gone to Humboldt to attend a Christian Endeavor society meeting. John Hamilton is south inspecting hardwood resources, and Mrs. Hamilton is in Chicago. Mrs. Stewart of Mason City came over Friday for a visit with her brother, M. F. Randall. Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Wadsworth visited his parents in Wisconsin on the way home from Chicago. Jos. Thompson has gone to Chicago. He will meet a brother there he has not seen for many years. Mrs. Harriet Hyde, a sister of Mrs. R. J. Hunt, has been making a visit of some weeks. She came from Pomona, Cal. Mrs. E. L. Cooke is exnected home this week, after her year in the east. Bertha will remain in Chicago for the fair. Mrs. Mary F. Carter started for Berrien Center, Mich., Friday to spend the summer with a sister. F. S. Stough accompanied her and will stay in Chicago at the fair. Miss Anna Hamilton is expected home from Des Moines this week. She has been studying art the past year and has a position as instructor the coming year, and will return to the capital city. Everybody in Kossuth wants to celebrate next Tuesday, and so far as heard from the following is the list of attractions he can choose from.

Father Tom Sherman, son of Gen. W. T. Sherman, is in charge. He was tendered a reception by the Grand Army posts at Dubuque on his arrival. The Telegraph says: "Father Sherman is a man of medium height, slender build, and straight as an arrow. He has the prominent features of his father." The young people's society, Sunday evening, presented Rev. Davidson with a $25 purse and elected him a delegate to the national meeting which is to be held at Montreal, July 6. He will leave Algona Friday, and, in all, be gone three or four weeks, taking a short vacation at the world's fair on his return.

The Gazette says: The famous Clark family cornet band will furnish the music. This band is made up entirely of the Clarks, the women lending a hand —or a lip—wherever needed, and is a great novelty, which has never been witnessed by many people of this county, and it will pay them to come out and see them and hear their music. A picnic is announced on the D. D. Dodge farm, south of Irvington, which will be very enjoyable. West Bend will be on deck, and Mayor Cohoon of Emmetsburg is expected to deliver the oration. LuVerne, Irvington, Algona, Sexton, Hobart, Ledyard, Swea City, and Germania are not in it, Armstrong and Corwith are both advertised to have celebrations.
