Frye has corn tasselling out already. Tennant's telephone line was finished Monday. It connects with both depots. It is rumored that Geo. W. Skinner is prominently mentioned in connection with the democratic nomination for the legislature. The Farley family held a reunion at Racine, Wis., not long ago. J. M. Farley and Mrs. Creighton of Whittemore could not attend. Prof. Chaffee is making ready for his summer school, and for the regular fall term. He looks for a growing attendance at both. Bancroft has a threatened case of hydrophobia. A little Nelson boy was bitten by an ugly dog there. No symptoms have yet appeared. This is the first Fourth of July on record when corn was out of the way of the plow. A great many fields have been through the last time. Marriage licenses have been issued to Julius Seifert and Delia Woods, A. H. Boldt and Laura Potratz, A. W. Raymond and Susie L. Myers. Bishop Hennessy last week appointed Father M. Carolan dean of Cerro Gordo, Hancock, Kossuth, Worth, Winnebago, and Franklin counties. The Algona ball club met the Lu- Vernites at Livermore yesterday for a purse of $75. At their last game the score was 21 to 20 for Algona. Elmer Mathews is doing some commendable road work in his district across the river. He has a grader and is turning up a sensible turnpike. DBen Winlue has sold his street sprinkler to go to Emmetsburg. The situation with the city well' has shut him out of a job and Algona is out. We neglected last week to note the arrival of a handsome baby at F. W. Dingley's homo. Frank starts out with a new store, a new house, and a now baby. The Algona boys beat LuVerne again yesterday at Livermore by a score of 12 to 7, in a good game. They report a pleasant visit and a good celebration there. Mrs. N. J. Skinner's father has returned to his home in Nebraska, taking the little folks along. Mr. and Mrs. Skinner will now go to Chicago to see the fair. Jo. Frankl's team was scared by a big fire cracker last evening and Mrs. Frankl was thrown out and hurt some. They were just starting for their home in Cresco. , Programmes of tho Spirit Lake meetings may be had at this office. Henry Watterson speaks next Tuesday. The declamatory contest comes two weeks from Friday. It is reported that the Blue Earth City brewery shipped 37 cases, 13 kegs, and two barrels of beer into lovya Monday. That is enough to inspire considerable patriotism on the Fourth. A. L. Beltori cut his first crop of clover last week arid will save the second for seed. He says clover never looked better and a yield of four bushels of seed to the acre will not surprise him. George Brooks, who acted as deputy sheriff: for M. Stephens several years, is back from Washington. He was at Spokane and Walla Walla. He says times are hard there and he is back to stay. Col. Spencer and G. B. Mclntosh have dissolved partnership and the latter has quit the busy scenes of Sexton for a rest in Chicago. Mr. Mcln- tosh will probably not return to this section. Horace Parsons came up to Algona last week looking so young that no one knew him. It was his beard that had been sacrificed that made the change. He said it was his first clean shave in 31 years, John Goeders has traded his Burt store to Alfred Heckart for his farm in Seneca. Mr. Heckart will take possession at once and return to merchandising. He has a good field and should make a success of it. Letters remain uncalled for in the Algona postoffice'for week ending July 1: J. R. Chappel, Arnold Esser, D. J. Hurley, Miss Annie Kleigl, Edd Rowe, Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Smith, Henry Whitten, K. Wilbur. Editor Albion tells the Emmetsburg Reporter • that "Whittemoro is improving rapidly, and that if it were not lor the fact that it is located so near the west side of Kossuth it would soon become the metropolis of the county." Judge Carr secured a full sized attack of the mumps last week and was unable to talk when the time came for his oration at Bancroft. He secured Rev. Sanderson to take his place, and Bancroft had a splendid oration just the same. Jacob Patterson, an old and well- known Swedish citizen of Algona, started yesterday for Tacoma, where his daughter lives. Jacob has been a standby in Algona and his familiar figure and polite manners will be ; missed. ; A petty burglary was committed at Wm. Cordingley's Monday night. A sneak thief took out the screen at the kitchen window and went in and stole a baked chicken which Mies Essie had ready for the Fourth, a lemon pie< and an old pair of Mr. Cordingley's shoes. The same night some one entered Col. Spencer's and stole a lot o_f eggs. Tramps are getting plenty again. A mean trick was played on Henry Winkie last week. He had a barrel of roofing tar out near the Cowles buildings on Dodge street for use. Some boys took the plug out one night and all the tar ran out. It was a loss of about $25. While examining a toy cannon Monday evening, Guy Taylor got a charge of powder in the face. One cinder in the eye caused some trouble, hut it was cut out and he was hotseriously injured. He caught for the boys next day at Livermore. The Fourth opened with rain that did good to corn. But before noon the day cleared and big celebrations are reported from Wesley and Wittemore, while at Bancroft and Burt large crowds were out. It was an old-fashioned Fourth. Mr. McElroy will speak Sunday morning at the Baptist church on " He Hath Made Everything Beautiful in His Time." In the evening Miss Mina Morford, a recent graduate of the Chicago training school, will speak at the Congregational church. C. D. Creed has sold his interest in the hard ward business in Algona to Fred. Wileox of Burt. Mr. Wilcox is a son-in-law of Clark Coffen, manager of the Burt creamery, and an energetic young business man. Mr. Creed has not decided what he will-do. Dr. Armstrong went over _to Emmetsburg a week ago for the big Masonic gathering. It was his first visit to Medium hike in 31 years, and he says it is impossible for him to realize the change. What 31 years has done most anywhere in this section would fill a volume. The Brunson boys, in addition to their "Uncle Tom" show, are practicing on a repertory of plays and will engage in the regular business this winter. They expect to have a strong company and to put on a list of first class attractions. There is no telling where they may be as managers in a few years. Senator Funk was over Saturday to advertise the coming Spirit Lake Chautauqua exercises, and billed the town like an experienced advance man. Between the Algona opera house and his show up there this northwest is going to develop some talent in theatrical management that will be in demand. Will. Chaffee went all over the county last week on his bicycle posting up advertisements for the normal school. While about five miles north of Lu- Verne his pneumatic tire burst and he had a good walk to town. The News says he found a man to repair the break, and mounted again for Livermore. By a rearrangement Howard Robinson will go to Annapolis to fill a vacancy in the naval academy instead of going to West Point, and the alternate appointed will go to West Point. He will leave Algona the middle of the month, and prepare then for examination about Aug. 20. He preferred the naval appointment and so the change is very satisfactory. The comments republished from the Des Moines, Council Bluffs, and Sioux City papers would seem to warrant our readers in assuming that the opera .tomorrow evening will be of a high order of merit. The full company appears and with its own orchestra. They have been playing full week engagements in every large city in the west, and the comment is uniformly favorable. Everybody who desires to see good shows in Algona should attend. The bills and paper for the Andrews Opera company were artistically put up by the most energetic set of bill posters Algona has lately seen. Manager Haggard, Leo Puegnet and C. B. Matson come in for the main honors, while in the way of good counsel and advice a large number of citizens rendered valuable assistance. The boys got up at 4 o'clock and will make a success of the opera house if doing the work for nothing and boarding themselves will do it. County Attorney Raymond's family are mourning the death of two bright grandchildren at Spirit Lake. A little boy three years old and a girl five years old died last week of diptheria. The Beacon says: "There are no other cases in the community, and in view of the care that is being exorcised there will probably be none. This is a terri- jle affliction for Mr. and Mrs. Raymond, whose children are more to them ;han everything else. In their deep sorrow the sympathy of the community is theirs." S. S. Sessions, who is chairman of the county republican committee, has about decided to call the county convention on,Friday, Aug. 11.. He also intends to call the representative convention at the same time. This makes the nomination of a representative rather early, but one cannot well be nominated at the convention to name county officials, and three meetings are too many. The representative and state conventions have to deal with the same matters, and for the next four weeks voters should consider state politics quite carefully. The county board last week refused to allow tht» claim of Mr. and Mrs. S. A. Thompson on account of their fall from the approach bridge near the Call bridge last winter. County Attorney Raymond advised them that the law did not require any such guard rails on tho bridge as would turn a violent horse. We learn that a new claim will be presented at tho September session and if not allowed that suit will be brought. Mr. Sullivan is the attorney in the ease. Our readers will remember the circumstances. The horse on coming on the bridge was either chocked down or for some reason threw itself against : tho rail, dragging the cutter and its occupants over. A correspondent writes from Anamosa to the Marshalltown Republican about the Sinn family, who are there for burglarizing the depot at Lu Verne, and says: " Mr. and Mrs. F. H. Sinn of Kossuth county, recently committed to the prison, he for 18 and she for six months, for larceny, have a baby with them about eight weeks ol_d. It is a pitiful fate'that brought this little one to such untoward surroundings, and illustrates the sad fact that transgression always brings penalty upon the innocent ar-well as the guilty. The little baby girl is as chirp and good-hfttured as can be, and is not in the least disturbed by its unpleasant surroundings. The baby is a great favorite with the penitentiary officials." Kossuth county people do not have so much interest this year in the doings at Spirit Lake, as they would have other seasons. But if they help make a success of this meeting, we will have each summer extra attractions within easy reach, and it will he a great advantage. The meetings begin next Monday and continue two weeks. Next week J". Dewitt Miller lectures Monday and Tuesday, the Chicago Lady quartette sings, Frank Beard in " chalk talks,"Mrs. Helen G. Beard in "woman's club" work, Shipp Bros, hand bell ringers, Elizabeth N. Yates in two lectures, Dr. Davidson with his stereopticon, CoL Copolarid, and others. The event of the week will be Henry Watterson on " Money and Morals," Tuesday. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. C. M. Doxsee and family celebrated the Fourth at Rolfe. Miss Edna Lantry came from Minneapolis Monday for a visit with her cousins. Miss Edith Bowyer went to Humboldt and Fort Dodge Saturday to visit relatives. Miss Mamie Lantry has g_oiietollum- boldt for a two weeks' visit with the Hack family. Mrs. Mary Parsons is visiting her parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Paine. Her many friends are pleased to see her in much better health than formerly. Chester Call instead of coming homo will spend most of his vacation in Ohio, where he will seo the famous oil wells. He will come to Algona a few days before his fall term begins. A. D. Clarke went to Des Moines Friday to attend a meeting of the directors of the newly organized bankers' bank Capt. Head is managing. Mr. Clarke is interested in it. Mrs. E. L. Cooke returned from a ten months' absence in the east Saturday. Thos. F. goes to Chicago tonight and with Miss Bertha will spend a couple of weeks at the fair. W. H. Ingham and brother, W. D. Ingharn, spent four days the past week fishing in Spirit lake. We would tell some of. the fish stories if it were not for the ones Dr. Geo. W. Ingham has brought from Washington. Spirit lake stories are pretty tame now, even the best of them. THE ANDREWS AT SIOUX CITY. The Journal Praises tlio Company Which AV111 Slug "Dorothy" Tomorrow The Sioux City Journal of last Sa.tur- day comments on the opera given Friday evening by the Andrews company at the close of a week's engagement and says: Geo. Andrews sang Strephon and in voice and action he was at his best. Mr. Andrews introduced a touching love song in the second act, which was highly appreciated, and was heartily encored. All through the evening the andience was in a well-pleased mood, and was liberal in applause. After nearly every prominent solo, duet, trio, and quartette a snatch more of the music was demanded and graciously accorded, and the harmony of the choruses was also noted in a substantial manner. Ed. Andrews sang the part of the lord high chancellor, the leading comedy part. It is one calculated to bring out his talents as a singer and comedian and show them off to the best advantage. Mr. Andrews was in good form, and took the part excellently. E. F. Seaman appeared to excellent advantage as Tollolar, and W. H. West, who sang the part of Lord Mount Ararat, sang it very well indeed. Florence Clayton was admirable as lolanthe and Marie Rao made a charming Phyllis. Jessie Andrews was thoroughly acceptable as the fairy queen. E.

REMEMBER Orr when you have painting done, SUNDAY IN THE PULPITS. The Occasion of Patriotic and Appropriate Discourses by Mr. E. P. McElroy. A Little of the History of a Man Possessed of a Good Deal of Christian Fortitude. Large audiences were out to hear E. P. McElroy preach at the Baptist and Congregational churches on Sunday, and listened to two able and patriotic discourses. Mr. McElroy is recovering gradually from the injuries to his head, and is regaining his old- time vigor as a speaker, and ability MS a thinker. He spokf Sunday afternoon also at the Walker school house, where he has been having some well-attended meetings. Mr. McElroy's history has been po- ouliar. In 1877 ho was preaching in Brockton, the. great shoe city of Massachusetts, had a large congregation, and received a ?2,000 salary. While out riding his buggy tipped on a grade and he was thrown on a pile of rocks, fracturing the skull over the right temple. For three weeks life was despaired of, but he finally pulled through. After a year ho began work, but Loo soon for his health, and he broke 'down from nervous prostration and resigned. Soon afterwards he wont to a small seaport village, where he preached occasionally and spent his time out of doors, fishing and recruiting his strength. Ho remained there seven years. Other circumstances arose which at the time again overtaxed his energies and ho came west to farm in Seneca, Mr. McElroy was a Congregatimmlist pastor, but joined the Baptist church in late years, and is not a properly ordained minister. He is a man of fine culture, broad learning, and one of the most pleasing speakers who ever occupied the pulpit in Algona, and possesses a perseverance and patience and a bouyant spirit which have borne him through very hard trials in his life here. All will rejoice that he is regaining his old vigor, and that the future opens a brighter prospect for him. He preaches during the present month at both the Baptist and Congregational churches, in the first in the morning and in the second in the oven- ing. WILL ATTRAOT ATTENTION. The Experiment of Stilling Oats to Be Made by Mr. Hart—It Will He Watched, with Interest. The scheme of putting a half barrel of salt on an acre of growing oats, which Mr. Hart will try this season, is- being noted by neighboring papers. The item as published in THE UPPER DES MOINES has been clipped by many. The Storm Lake Pilot says: "An interesting experiment will bo tried this season by a Kossuth county farmer who is raising some fine oats northeast of the Milwaukee depot. He intends to sow a half barrel of cheap salt to the acre on parts of his field to find out whether there is any merit in this treatment for blight and rust. .. He says that in Wisconsin it has been found that salt will stiffen the straw and protect it against both, and that by trying it in various places he can tell whether it benefits crops here." A full report of Mr. Hart's experience will be published in due season. KEOOEDEE BAND ALL'S PATHEK. A Pioneer In Cerro Gordo County— Sliort Slcetch of His Life. The Mason City Republican gives a long sketch of the life of Judge Elisha Randall in its last issue, together with a portrait. Ho is M. F. Randall's father, and a few paragraphs from the sketch will be of general interest: " Air. Randall was born at Brookfield, Madison county, New York, Sept. 22, 1818. He took the full name of his father, who was one of the judges of the court of Madison county for many years. As a boy ho assisted his father in a clothing mill, saw mill, and oil mill, attending the common schools when his work allowed. In 1844 Judge Randall moved to Edmeston, Otsego county, New York, where he remained six years, operating a grist mill and in the manufacture of hardware. He also spent four years in Belmont, Allegheny county, the sa:ne state. In the autumn of 1854 he emigrated to Iowa, and in June, 1855, took up his permanent residence in this county, one mile north of Mason City postoffice. On locating he built a saw mill on Lime Creek in connection with Samuel Douglas of Benton county, and a grist mill two years later, running both for several years. He was one of the thirty- four voters who organized the county in the summer of 1855. "In 1870 Mr. Randall built a lime kiln in connection with other parties. He made the business a study and in July, 1872, received a patent for the 'Randall Perpetual Lime Kiln.' In 1876 he sold his interest in the patent in Cerro Gordo county, and not long after his mill property, moving on a farm two miles north of the city, where he remained six years. He then resolved to move to Mason City, and accordingly built his present residence, where he has spent the past eleven years." PKOP. BEEP'S QUANDARY. Ills Blectloii to the Prlncipalslilp of tlio Sioux Falls Schools Not an Unalloyed mossing. Last week we noted the promotion of Prof. Geo. E. Reed, late of the Algona normal school, to the .principalship of the Sioux Falls city schools. From the Sioux Falls Press of June 25 we clip as follows: Geo. E. Reed, the new principal of the high school, has been put in a rather awkward position by the recent action of six members of the school board writing him a letter in which they stated that he would not receive any pay for coming here. Mr. Reed, in a letter to a friend here, says he terflly knows what to ^lo under tt» e ojroum? stances. The school board of Spencer, Iowa, where he has been teaching, held his position there open for five weeks, and until he secured the contract for teaching here, and then filled it with another party. He gave excellent satisfaction there and the board did not desire to- have him leave. If he should not come here to teach Mr. Reed says he would probably be out of a job for a year, as it would be almost impossible to secure a position now. FOR A BIG STATE PAIR, lown Will Mnlco n Show Sept. 1-8 nt Des MoIncs-9U5,UOU to be Given In Premiums. Secretary Shaffer is working up a big state fair on the theory that many from the outside world will visit Iowa from Chicago. He says: The Iowa display at the world's fair is the wonderment of all strangers to our resources. Many of these strangers can be induced to come and see Iowa if wo can show them an exhibition that is worthy of their patronage. Those people from other states and foreign nations will want to learn more of us. Why not concentrate this school of instruction at our state fair ground? In nobuttter way can we demonstrate to those people what our soil can produce than to show them the matchless stock and products of the farm, and here, loo, can bo shown the intelligence of our people through the workshop and household. Perhaps with the aid of such an exhibit as our people can make many of these strangers who will visit this fair will become worthy citi/.ens among us. WHITE Skinner Bros, for money. LADIES' and Misses gossamers to close at 60 cents each. Geo. L. Galbraith & Co. _ _ AN ALGONA LADY CANDIDATE. Miss Emily Reeve Is to Hun Down :it Hampton, for County Sui'erlntend- cnt. The following item from the Hampton Recorder will interest our readers. Miss Reeve is well known hero and will make a good candidate: Miss Emily Reeve announces herself as a candidate for county superintendent of schools, subject to the action of tho republicans of the county at tho proper time. Miss Reeve has had good success as a teacher, and graduated from the four years' general course at the Iowa Agricultural college in 1883, so that her qualifications are excellent in every way. It might also with propriety bo stated that Miss Reove is as enthusiastic and earnest a republican as there is in Franklin county, if she doesn't have a vote, and tho fact that her father and one brother died in tho army, and her other two brothers ^yho were old enough wore also soldiers, will not hurt her candidacy any with republicans. She will- be a strong candidate, and the throe gentlemen who have their entries already made must not for a moment imagine that Miss Reove is not going to have a place in this race. A Hint to DUBUQUE, June 27. — James H. Hunt has sued the city for §10,000 damages for injuries received by a defective sidewalk on April 11 last. It is claimed that tho sidewalk had become rotten, and that Hunt fell and sustained a serious and lasting injury to his spine. CHOICE, fresh candies just received at the Opera House Grocery.

Sageville Again in the Throes of an Internecine Strife that May Prove Serious. The Family of Widow Buehlmcyer Torn in Twain and the Portly Lady Thrown Out of Doors. Disquieting news, we regret to say, has again been received from the seat of war. By this wo mean that tho Dubuque papers report further domestic eruptions in tho quiet, rural hamlet of Sageville, whore last fall ton delightful October days were spent by tho Iowa rifio team. This trouble was brewing at that timo, but it is only fair that the war correspondent, in temporarily resuming duties, should preface by remarking that tho assembled rifle men and attendants were spectators merely, and in no way tho occasion of tho trouble. The outbreak has occurred in tho family of widow Buohlmeyer, a portly old German lady, tho republican postmistress of tin; village, and tho proprietor of one of tho half-doHo.n beer dispensatories which constitute it. A black oyo which she bore when camp WHS first pitched spoke of war at that time, and certain references to tho character of her son-in-law, A. P. Hale, indicated that he might be responsible for the adornment. Since then, a few weeks ago, tho old lady was turned out of her home by tho said Halo, and in court she testified that ho shot at betas she was leaving, but wo bolievo ho convinced the jury that it was a Hash of lightning she had seen. Now Hale has :: brought suit against one Peter Klein, and tho history of the caso given by tho Telegraph unveils more of tho family history: u Halo alleges that on May 1, 1893, ho made a verbal contract with defendant whereby tho latter was to erect a frame building in Peru township, and was to lease it to him for a term of years beginning July 1. Relying on defendant's promise, plaintiff refused a situation offered him at a salary of $2,500 a year, and by reason of defendant's failure to keep her promise, plaintiff has suffered to the extent of §51,000, for which sum he asks as damages. This is a sequel to the trouble Hale has had with his mother-in-law, Mrs. Buehl- moyor, postmistress at Sugovillo. He rented her house for a term which expired in Juno of last year. They had had trouble meanwhile and she tried to eject him on tho expiration of tho lease, but ho succeeded in convincing a justice's jury that she had made a verbal renewal of tho lease until Juno 1 of this year. Moan while Halo and tho old lady have had frequent quarrels, and she charges that he drove her out of tho'house during a storm one night last spring and fired a bullet at her to speed her on her way to a neighbor's." _ THE UPPER DES MOINES has several times referred to tho country saloons along the Sagovillo road. Hero is a concrete example which will never be lost on anyone who was there of what they degenerate into in this country. Mrs. Buohlmeyer is a well-meaning and intelligent old lady, with strong political conyictions. Her husband went to tho army, and after four years' service returned in broken health. To livo ho started a little store and added a saloon. His young daughter acted as barmaid. Tho saloon paid and tho store did not, and the store was dropped. The old folks never outgrew the old- country idea of tho saloon, and maintained their self respect. Tho daughter grow up in tho American idea of tho saloon, tried to get away from it, was brought back because it did not pay when she was no longer there, and her father bogged hor to stay, and sho married Halo when he was drunk. He is a fair sample of tho American patron of tho saloon, an inebriate at 81 years, squandering the old lady's patrimony, drinking up her stock in trade, and kicking her out of hor own house. She cannot yet seo why the saloon is not a respectable business in America. She tolls what Halo might do "if" ho would only do this or that. Sho cannot see that tho "if" and "if" are impossible. Her daughter can, and everyone else can who looks on. Tho old lady will die believing sho has led a reputable and honest life, and that her daughter got a good start. But the second gen- sralion are not deceived. The saloon is foreign to this country, and two gen- orations will run the best blood out that over engaged in it.
