« . Tjttte UPPJiR DBS MOINES! ALGONA, IOWA, WJBDNE8BAY, JtTLY 12, 1893. We Have : made the trade. We have . traded Mr. Jas. Taylor's entire stock of clothing for a fine neto stock of dry goods. The store '^was only run six months, so .""there are no old goods. We .have some of the finest goods that were ever brought to Algona. This stock was bought • ekpressly with a view to fur; nishing the college students at Ames, and the reason this party ' .wanted to trade it off was that , his foreman, who was running the store, got on a spree and stayed on it for six weeks. The owner of the store lived at Boone, Iowa. He has six clothing stores and did not want to put dry goods in any of them. In making the trade we put our goods in at wholesale, and so did the other party, except small pieces and remnants which we got a discount of 25 per cent, less than cost, and we propose to make prices that cannot be duplicated anywhere or by anyone.

Come do you good. Samuel Mayue brought the news to Algona yesterday of the prospective appointment of G, W. Skinner of Bancroft as consul at LaGuayra in place of Phil. C. Hanna, tho present incumbent, it is hot claimed that tho appointment is yet made, but Mr. Skinner it in receipt of a-luttor from J. J. Richardson, one of the povvurs that be in tho Iowa democracy, n'otif.yiiiH; him that his selection had been agreed upon, and that his commission would be forthcoming in a few days. This seemed all that was needed for a jubilee meeting, which is said to have been indulged in at Bancroft Monday night by the democracy of thiit section It is not entirely clear whether Algona democrats are as happy as they might bo or not. In discussing the probable "appointment one of them intimated yesterday that there might be some mistake about it, and that perhaps a bird in tho hand was better than one in tho bush. Bro. Hinchon is said to have parted with a OS-cent dollar us a result of having backed his opinion. None, however, questioned Mr. Skinner's having received the letter from Mr. Richardson but somehow they appeared to hide that benignant facial expression which ought to exist when a democrat is chosen to an of- 11 co. This paper desires to congratulate Mr. Skinner on his probable success. If he is the lucky man it simply shows that ho is a better hustler than some folks have given him credit for being. It is a matter of small consequence to us who gets the offices, so they come to Kossuth. Tho biggest All are glad to learn of his prosperity Wanted, Men and teams to put up hay ii stacks.

LUND. countyin tho state must bo recognized, and developments already tend to show that she is "in it" to a mucli greater extent than was the man who fell out of a balloon. Tho consulship at LaGuayra is a big job, and has been held down for three years by a man possessed of a goodty amount of* diplomacy, but there can be no doubt that Mr. Skinner will meet all the requirements of the situation, even to the matter of staud- g as a target to be shot at..

He says they are doing a good business, and will work into the eastern part of the state soon. Old friends are pleased to meet Mr. and Mrs. Edson Williams and daughters it \Vas A Close Call. Geo. Stout pet-formed an act yesterdaj which probably saved the lives of twc children. J. F. Lacy's horse had broken loose and came running through town at a dangerously rapid gait. Stout foresav what might happen, and jumped on to a norse and undertook to head off the run away. In doing so he cnme up with the carriage of Mr. Bossinghnm, which hat just been overturned by the Lacy horse running into it, and the team attachet were dragging it, with Bossinsham's two children, at a lively rate. Jumping from his horse Stout caught the Bossingham team and stopped them, doubtless just ii time to avert what might have been a bac accident. The children were 1 not badly hurt, but the carriage and Lacy's cart were considerably broken to pieces. A Pleasant Gathering. A gathering, composed chiefly of Grand Army men and their families, last evening at A. D. Clarke's hall, was a most enjoyable affair. It was in the nature of a reception for Col. J. M. Comstock and family, anrl a literary programme was one feature of the entertainment. WESLEY'S WAS A SUMMER.

WESLKV, July 10.—The glorious Fourth of July is past and gone, but not without leaving many pleasant memories in tho minds of tho multitude that assembled at Wesley hist Tuesday. The day was all that could be asked for. The gentle shower the night before just enough to lay the dust and cool the air, was just in place to make the day the most enjoyable for all. Our people were up early in the morning and the boom of the cannon was heard by the first rays of the sun. At 10:40 the speaker, Edgar Butler of Algona, arrived, and the people assembled at the grove of Mr. Hume After music by the band, prayer was offered by Rev. S. E. Eastman. C. E. Oleson then introduced the speaker, the Hon. Edgar Butler, who held tfre attention of the crowd for more than an hour listening to one of the most eloquent and scholarly addresses that ever was delivered by anyone in Wesley, and the remark was made by scores of people during the day that the oration was the best that they ever heard on such an occasion. After music by the band the people adjourned for dinner. At 3 the races took place at E. E. Waite's track, north of town. In the trotting race Thos. A. Way's horse from Burt took first money; inttie running race F. A. Corey's horse took first and second money and Jim Dinger's horse third money. There was a ball game after the races were over, which was played by some of our Wesley boys and was a good game. At 4 the following races took place: Boys' race under 13 years, Louis Falk took first money; boys' race under 16 years, Harvey Adams took first money; free-for-all race, Stilzel X. Way took first money; in the fat man's race A. W. Dana of Britt took first money and Charlie Falk second; this race gave the most amusement of all; bicycle race, S. F. Way took first money; egg race, Harvy Adams took first money; cigar and umbrella race, Jack Norton took first and Ed. Kuuz second. At 5 Prof. Swartz (Harvy Ford) walked the tight rope, which was well done for a boy of only 14 years. There is not tho least doubt but with a little practice he will be quite a performer on the tight rope and trapeze. The exercises closed in the evening by a grand display of fire works, and so ended one of the best Fourth of July celebrations that Wesley ever saw. It is estimated that there were from 2,r>00 to 8,000-people here. Mrs. A. J. We'therbee of Charles Citv has been visiting her father and mother and old neighbors for the past week, and returned home last Friday evening. A man who was working for Mr. Curley, about five miles east of Wesley, whose name we have been unable to learn, became so deranged last Thursday that he became almost unmanageable. He went into one of the school houses and frightened the teacher and pupils quite badly. The neighbors followed him up and at last succeeded insetting him to Wesley and aboard the 5:55 train, and took him to Garner, to be cared for. He was a fine appearing man, but what was the cause of his mental Jerangement we have not been able to learn. His case is a sad one, indeed. John Longbottom of Prairie township is rejoicing over the advent of a little girl baby that arrived at their home the 5th. L. M. Kimball of Corwith was in our town Friday of last week. Rodney Hill of Britt and Archie Hutchinson of Algona spent the Fourth in Wesley. W. P, Giddings has been building a stone wall under his house in the north part of town. Somebody that had not the love of God in his heart nor the fear of Dr. McCormack, went into the latter's stable the evening of the Fourth and cut his harness to pieces. Geo, B. Hall, J. J, Budlong, Conrad Falk and Fred Anderson started for Chicago Sunday evening. They expect to be in tho city about ten days, taking in the sights at tho big fair. Miss May Curry of Mason City is the guest of Mrs. F. Heal this week. Albert Donelson and wife of Clear Lake spent Saturday and Sunday here visiting friends. Miss Rose Colby closed a very successful term of school In the Longbottom district in Prairie last Saturday. The ladies of the M. E. church served meals during the Fourth, clearing over $85, for which they feel thankful to the public for their kind patronage. Tom Gray was doing business at Cedar Rapids several days last week. H. R. Tennent is packing up "his store goods and Intends moving them to Jamaica, Iowa, where he is talking of locating. He seems not to be very well satisfied with the business in Wesley. We can assure him of one thing, that it is no fault of the town if his business has not been a success here. the Dijfe 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 Room iii the new State Bank block, on State street. If cleanliness is akin to G-odliness, 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 G-oods, etc. An inspection tells the story. ^ew State Bank Block, Algona, Iowa. W. owa. From 1SSO to 1883 Andrew Boren, together witli his wife and other members of the family, lived on a farm ust outside the corporate limits of . : lenwood. It was here the father mar- ied the stepmother, whom Lizzie was charged with having murdered. This marriage was against the wishes of the 'oung girl, who entered a vigorous pro- est, but without avail. After the mar- •iage, while the Bordens lived at Glen- yood, Lizzie was home but little of the ime, being absent teaching school in surrounding country districts. Notice.
