Most people hereabouts are star gazers these fine evenings, straining their optics to discover the comet. Tho Kossuth County State bank has a new hard pine floor. It is rumored that other improvements may soon follow. Parties at Bancroft raised the necessary funds and paid the iine of theboot- legger who was in jail here, and he was released. The funeral of Mr. Ricker, who lived east of town, took place last Thursday. He suffered a stroke of paralysis from which he never revived. Licenses to marry have been issued ABSTRACTS.

The ladies of the Baptist church will give a social in the lecture room of the church, Friday evening, for the benefit of Mr. E. P. McElroy. Letters received from Rev. Dorvvard state that he has abandoned all extensive travel during his vacation, and is taking his ease in his home at Sheldon. The deputy sheriff from St. James, Minn., was in town last Saturday, looking for the Algona Supply company. Whether he found it or not we did not learn. Mr. McElroy will conduct the service at the Baptist church next Sunday morning. Subject of discourse: " Ho Hath Made Everything Beautiful in His Time." An ice cream social will be held at the home of R. J. Hunt on Thursday evening, for the benefit of the Good Templars' lodge. Everybody is cordially invited to attend. A memorial service for Mr. Bicker will be held by Mr. McElroy at the Walker school house next Sunday, at 3 p. m. The musical service will be in charge of Mrs. Horan. The First National bank last week pulled out the furnace in their basement. The bank being now heated with steam from the opera house block, the furnace was a useless appendage. The card of the Thorington house appears this week. Mr. MoMurray is operating his house on a basis that is first class, and starts in with a patronage which he says is as large as he expected. A stalk of corn at the Kossuth County bank, raised by Martin Owens of Plum Creek, stands fully nine feet high, and Mr. Owens says is a little better than the average of a good-sized field he has growing. The city pump is undergoing repairs. The Chicago firm of Smith, Vale & Co., from whom it was purchased, have sent a man here in the person of Mr. Shea, who is overhauling it and will make it as good as new. The Chas. Wilkins property, in the north part of town, recently purchased by Frank Gilmore, has been thoroughly overhauled, and Mr. Gilmore expects to occupy it soon with his family. It will make them a pleasant home. Letters remain uncalled for In tho Algona postofflce for Mrs. Lottie Burk- ties to whom he sold his " Kossuth" colt in Chicago, for §1,000, were offered $1,500 for it before he left the city. From this he argues that the colt was really better than he had supposed. Leo. Peugnet was at Armstrong last week looking for a location for a clothing store. Mr. Galbraith has a large stock of clothing for which, under the new arrangement, they have no room, and there is some probability that it will be taken to Armstrong, where there seems to be a good opening for a store of that kind. The statement of the Kossutb County State bank is published this week. An examination of the report shows that its condition is sound and beyond possible danger, which is likewise trueof all of Algona's banking institutions. There is a good deal of satisfaction in the reflection that in these times of financial troubles all over the country, Algona's banks are solid as the rocks. Bro. Hinchon still discredits the story about Geo. W. Skinner's appointment, and intimates that Harvey Ingham or some of the other wicked republicans now in Chicago wrote that letter and sent it out. It seems the letter from Mr. Richardson was written in Chicago, on a Grand Pacific letter- heading, but as it was signed by J. J. Richardson, we are unable to see why its genuineness should be called in question. Brunson's Uncle Tom's Cabin aggregation played at Whittemore last Saturday night, and it is said that there was standing room only. A good many from Algona drove over, combining the pleasure trip with a visit to the show. The company went to Wesley Monday evening, and from there goes south. They expect, however, to Stay in Iowa for some weeks to come, as this state seems to be about the best show ground there is at present. The Algona ball club fell back a notch in the game with the Britt nine last Wednesday, losing by a score of 12 to 8. The boys have a well-defined notion a^ to the occasion of their failure to win the game, and they promise themselves that the same causes shall not work to their disadvantage in the future. Our boys are playing good ball this season, and there was no good reason why they should not have won this game. They speak pleasantly of their treatment by the Britt people. Manager Melzar Haggard of the opera house company has contracted with the Corse-Payton Comedy company for a four-nights'stand here during fair- week, beginning Sept. 27. The company has a reputation for giving first- class entertainments. The repertory is to be decided upon later. On Nov. 6 Chas. E. Schilling's minstrels will hold the boards for one Anight. This company guarantees to bring 35 people, and as this will be the first minstrel performance in the opera house, they are likely to have a big crowd. Supt. Reed this week makes the official announcement of the teachers' normal institute for Kossuth county, which opens Aug. 14. A departure from the regular programme is that of extending the session into a three-weeks' meeting, instead of two, as heretofore, a feature that will doubtless meet the appi-oval of all teachers. A reference to the corps of instructors will show that some of the best normal talent has been secured for work at this institute, and none other than a beneficial result can come from the meeting. A surgical operation was performed Monday by Dr. Morse of this place and Dr. Dorr of Des Moines, assisted by Dr. Walters of Bancroft, being the removal from Mrs. Chas. Winkle of an ovarian tumor weighing about 25 pounds. The operation is one of the most delicate and difficult known to surgery, and the success which has attended this one gives evidence of the skillful manner of its performance. Mrs. Winkie went through the trying ordeal with much fortitude, and is doing so nicely now that no doubt is entertained of her speedy recovery. There is to be an " old folks'" dance at A. D. Clarke's hall on Friday evening, this week. The presence in Algona of so many former residents has suggested the propriety of this gathering, and there can be no doubt of its being a most enjoyable occasion, It is hinted that card tables will be arranged for those old folks who haye become so old that the art of terpsichore has lost its charm, and they can find entertainment at whist or skat, if that pleases them better. Good music will be furnished, and the old folks generally are cordially invited, Jos. Thompson returned last week from Chicago and the big fair. He gives an interesting account of his chance meeting there with two brothers whom he had not seen for many ing out of Pomeroy just as the storm struck the town, and the engineer, hoping to escape the fury of the elements by fast running, opened wide the throttle and "let her go." Mr. Quinlan describes the ride as the fastest he has taken for many a day, but anything was preferable to a cyclone, and while they expected the train to jump the track any minute, all hands were willing to take the chances. He was in the tornado at Rochester, Minn., some years ago, where he received a scalp wound, and he fights shy of wind storms now. The death of Uriah W. Hatch occurred on Monday. He had been a victim of a lingering disease for some years, and lias been so low for some months that his demise does not come as a surprise to those who know him intimately. Some years ago he bought land about four miles west of Algona, but has not bucn a resident hero until less than a year ago, when ho removed from Whitewater, Wis. He was not well known here, but the writer has known him for several years, and can testify to his many good qualities as a citizen. Ho was a soldier in the Eighth Wisconsin regiment, the old "Eagle regiment," and tho remains wore interred yesterday by the Jas, C. Taylor post, after services at the school house, nour his farm, conducted by Rev. H. B. Butler. A case which comes under our own observation throws a side light on tho methods of tho democratic pension bureau. S. B. Shadle of Algona was a good soldier. While in tho service he contracted disabilities which, according to the facts in the case, would entitle him to compensation from the government. Ho made application for a pension and was examined by tho local board in Algona, one of whom is a democrat, and they gave unanimous recommendation. Later ho was cited to appear at Emmotsburg for asecond examination, which resulted in a like manner. His rating would have been $8 or $10 a month. Pie was entitled to something, at least, as shown by the results of his examinations. Lately his papers have been returned to him from Washington, marked "No disability shown." Thus the work of " purging the pension rolls" goes on, but it is of tho Hoke Smith sort. The old soldier is no longer in it. M. O'Rourke has completed his part of the work on the grade for tho new highway being opened south of the fairgrounds. Ho has done a good job in so far .as was possible with the money appropriated for that purpose, but the road is far from being what is needed. This road, when put in proper condition, would become one of the most- traveled highways in the county. The river bottom which it crosses needs much in the way of grading which will not be done at present because of a lack of funds. Mr, O'Rourke complains, and with much justice, of the system upon which our public improvements A THREE WEEKS' SESSION, The Kossnth County Normal Institute to Run for That Time, Beginning August 14. Some of the Best Talent Obtainable Has Been Secured—What Superintendent Reed Says. We Have Tho 29th annual session of tho Kossuth County Teachers'Normal institute will be held at Algona, commencing Monday, Aug. 14, 1893, and continuing three weeks under the supervision of the faculty: Supt.

Full examinations will bo required of those who do not attend. Tho regular examinations will be conducted on tho last Friday and Saturday of the third week, at which time credit will be given for all good work done by each teacher at tho institute. Algona, July 17, 1803. B. P. RKED, County Superintendent. Ruth Mrs. The undersigned having bought out the meat market formerly owned by H. J . Edens wish to say that they will be clad to meet all old. customers, as Well as the new ones that njay tavor them with their patronage, homng by kind treatment and fair fleaUng to receive a part of the public patronage. Cash for hides, I poultry, etc. f SHADLE & SON. are made, and his complaint is based upon the fact that our county supervisors are chosen at large instead of by supervisor districts. This paper has often pointed out the advantages to be gained by a change in the manner of selecting our supervisors, and the sooner we adopt the district supervisor- system the better it will be for the entire county. Someone should make a move in this direction, and thus bring about a reform that is much needed. Tramps are becoming an intolerable nuisance. The town has been overrun with them during the past few days, and it is assumed there are more to follow. Last Thursday Uncle Benjamin camped on the trail of a couple who had been begging food at houses all the afternoon. Following them to the Milwaukee depot he found them, in company with three others, in hiding behind a train of freight cars. Marshal Dailey was sent for and the whole lot were corralled and brought before Justice Clarke. Here they sang the same old song; they were in search of work, which they had been unable to find. His honor heard their stories, and in the goodness of his heart ex- E ressed his sorrow at their apparent lilure, and said he could accommodate them with all the work they wanted; Algona's streets, always in need of repair, would furnish an opportunity for the exercise of their surplus energy, and his judgment gave them five days' work on the public high way. The next day two of them were set to work under charge of the street commissioner. They stayed half a day, and then broke and ran. The three in the cooler got aid from the outside in some manner and pried off the lock, thus effecting their escape. We can probably count on five tramps that will hereafter keep away from town.

Taylor's entire stock of clothing for a. fine new 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 expressly with a view to fuf* 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. We have placed on counters those short lengths of goods; there are probably 300 pieces ranging from ^ yard to 12 yards, at prices (for the whole piece) which if you come to see tham you will certainly select something. Here arc a few of the prices for you to consider: 4^ Cashmere, cheap at $i a yard, piece, $3.25. 9^ imported wosted, for $6.30, cheap at $12. 5^ Cashmere (America) $1.95. 9^ fine Jamestown goods, $1.85. 4^ double-fold fine worsted, very nice for a girl's dress, $1.60. As there are over 300 pieces we will give a few prices on other goods: 2 pieces fine black lace dress goods, worth $2.25 at retail, our price, $1.65. 2 pieces extra fine black lace dress goods, worth $2.75, our price, $1.95. i piece finest black lace dress goods in the store, price $3.25, now $2.25. 4 pieces fine grenadine, worth $i, for 65c.

That game of quoits has been revived, in response to the suggestion of this paper, and nothing is now lacking to make our happi- piness complete. "Ringers" and "hul> bers" seem to have a wonderfully 'ex-- hilerating effect. Deputy Sheriff McEnroe on Monday took our two jail birds, Bennett and Smith, to Mason City and deposited them in the Cerro Gordo count'y jail for safer keeping. Report has it that there was danger of their escape if left in our shaky bastile. C. D. Creed has turned collector for the time being, and ' is gathering in some of the accounts of the late lirm. He has a weathet'eyeoutfor any business venture that may be open, but says he is in no hurry to engage in anything until the financial situation improves. S. S. Sessions has been appointed by the governor a member of the advisory council on'farm and cereal industry of the world's auxiliary, in connection with the'Columbian exposition. Ihe world's auxiliary congresses will convene in Chicago Oct. 16, and Mr. Sessions says-he will attend. The lawn party on the beautiful grounds at .Lewis H. Smith's residence, last Friday evening, was one of the pleasantest gatherings of the season. years, and says the crowd about them Bootew A platform was made, upon which the canvas was spread, and the young people did honor to terpsichore to their near'J.8' content. •' M&i'tin Coonan was over from Em- metfcburg talking horse with some of 'the"bo,ys last Friday. He says the par- evidently considered it something of a scene, Mr. Thompson admits that big tears came to his own eyes just about the time he discovered that both his brothers were affected in a like visible manner, He adds that while the fail- is a big thing, he would rather have missed that than the meeting described elsewhere in our columns. W. B. Quarton was called by tele- ..g-i-am to St. James, Minn., last Thursday, his presence being' desired in the defense of a case in which Harry Dodge was under arrest. It seems that Harry had sold some "blue sky" to a farmer in that section who kicked on the quality of it after he had given his note, and had Harry arrested for obtaining money under false pretenses. Mr. Quarton desired to bring the case to immediate trial, but for some reason the prosecution asked for and secured a continuance for ten days, during which time, it is learned, Harry is out under bonds. Uncle Benjamin ran in three dago women who were peddling their wares last week without a city license. Taken before Justice Clarke they stoutly maintained their total lack of cash until his horor sentenced them to jail, when their memories were suddenly refreshed and they found the necessary funds with which to pay the required fee. This paper believes that the license cannot be placed too high on this class of venders. They are a filthy lot of human beings, totally unfit to enter the homes of respectable people, and the, sooner the license is made prohibrtory the better for everybody. C. L. Quinlan, son-in-law of .(Frank Nicoulin, came very near being -in, the wreck at Pomeroy last week. He is % commercial traveler, and that section is included in his territory.
