Conner & Cowan complete the Whittemore bank building this week. It is a fine structure. Every person should show something at the county fair, oven if it is nothing more than his good will. Rev. Clapp, a relative of the Robison family, preached in the Congregational church Sunday evening. Marriage licenses have been issued to John Veenhus and Lullene Tannan, C. W. Miller and Minnie Gipfert. The Brunson boys' blood hound made a phenomenal record with a litter of pups, having 10, six of which arc being raised., They are half mastiff. . The West Bend Journal says: Misses Matson and McCall of Algona were over the first of the week looking up the prospect for a millinery store. Will Mullicn, who was with Rome Woodworth in Chicago exhibiting machinery, is going to Europe for his flrm. He has been home on a visit. Men-it Turner came down from Bancroft for the convention and then went on to Chicago. The Register says he has friends on the Plaisance he wants to see. Geo. Kuhn, who has been with the Uncle' Tom company, will travel through the county fairs hereabouts this fall giving exhibitions on his own hook. M. B. Chapin has traded his farm in Union township for Chas. Walker's place in town and other property. The farm has 400 acres and was valued at $25 an acre. The Bancroft man who was lately caught selling liquor has been nabbed by the United States revenue officer and taken to Port Dodge. He will not get off so easy there. Cards have been received announcing the wedding of Jas. McLaren and Miss Minnie Hawthorne, which is to occur tomorrow. All of Mr. McLaren's Algona friends will congratulate and wish him good luck. Miss Hawthorne is a teacher. There was a runaway and smashup on the Blackford hill last Sunday, in which John Aden, wife and child, were more or less injured by being thrown from, the carriage. As none other than the injured parties seem to have seen it, the particulars are difficult to get. S. S. Sessions is in Des Moines to remain till the state fair closes. The fair comes Sept. 1 to 8, and the special at traction this year is the grand spectacle, "The Last Days of Pompeii." We publish some particulars about this in another column. It will be well worth seeing. The West Bend Journal refers to last week's game of ball and says: Only four innings were played, probably because there was no room on the score card for any more tallies. We suspect the lawyers won because they were better talkers and this unduly influenced the umpire. C. E. OJeson, so long a leading business man of Wesley, has now gone to Chicago for good. Carl is the "Co." in Butts, Ward & Co., office 503 Omaha building, Chicago. The flrm deals in hay and is doing well there, Carl is a first-class business man and will undoubtedly succeed. The races at the county fair include a free-for-all trot for $150, novelty race for $25, running race of county Horses for $25, trotting race of county horses for $50, two-year-old trotting race lor $30, 2:40 trotting race for $100, anal running race for $150. In addition to- '.C- ....t'fe, ..I. those purpps a largo sum is ::.ppropri- nted for other races and amusements which will bo announced before fail- week. This fair will bo as interesting is any over yot hold. 1 Letters remaining uncalled for in tho Algona postolfico for the week ending Aiig. 12, 1893: C. H. Barber, Charlie Barrow, Mrs. Emma Bellman, A. A. Boardman, P. O. Johnson, Ole Olson Klojkstead, Charlie Laurge, Andrew Mitchell, Miss Clara Millis, J. P. Olson, Win. Staples Esq., Win. Whitson, John Ward, L. P. Vauslh. As nearly as can bo learned the circus, advertised hist week for today, went to pieces somewhere in Minnesota a few days ago. No bills were put up here, and word was heard over the telegraph line that tho outfit had shipped to Chicago. The newspapers were the chief losers, getting nothing for their advertising space. The democrats meet today to send delegates to the state convention. At the time of going to press it is not known whether the managers will let in anyone from LuVerne outside of " the seven" or not, or whether any of the signers of the Skinner endorsement will be recognized from_Bancroft. We hope harmony will prevail. We have heard nothing to indicate that Mr. Lund will not be Col. Sessions' opponent, except a rumor that Mayor Thompson of Bancroft is talked of. We boomed Mayor Thompson for county attorney a year ago, but he failed to respond. 'lie is a fine young man, but just at present we don't feel like going back on the Algona boys who are having such hard sledding. M. J. Wade, who has been in Algona in several suits with J. W. Sullivan, is to lecture in Chicago, Sept. 17, on the "Marriage Bond." The lecture is be- fora the world's congress of religions, and Mr. Wade is highly honored by the distinction. Mr. Wade is still due atone term of court here on the Dingley & Moffatt cribbing horse case, if that ever comes to trial again. Chas. Wooster's team, which was standing in the Paul lumber yard, Monday, became frightened and ran away. They ran only across one block and two streets when they collided with one of the trees on the Dr. Ban- place, and the shock of the collision was so severe that one of the team, a 1300- pound draft mare, was killed instantly. The mare was a valuable animal, and one thathe had only recently purchased. Thursday evening State Supt, Knoepfler will deliver a lecture, the title of which is "X." We are in the dark as much as anyone as to what tho lecture will be or what it is about, but the subject is suggestive of most any thing, and in the hands of the superintendent is sure to be interesting. Maud Cowan will deliver a recitation preceding the lecture, and the Baptist choir will furnish music. The county fair premium lists are out and will soon be in everybody's hands. The fair comes in about five weeks, and everybody should plan to come and help make it a success. The premiums will be paid in full, as usual, and special attractions will be arranged for by Messrs. Wadsworth and Sessions at the state fair. The premiums offered are worth winning, and county pride ought to lead everyone to show something. saloon is n ViyY morality, (tiscn.-' lar patrons arc ( but all surely until 'nd'.'ceney, im•':>]•:•. 11* regu- ...••!, sonic slowly ,-alth, character, family and friends arc gone, mid tho wreck that remains is gladly put out of sight when tho end comes.

Robispn spent Sunday in Algona. They enjoy thoir homo at Britt. J. W. Wadsworth will be at the state fair again this year in his official capacity. He went down Monday for that and the convention. T. L. Grose was over from Emmetsburg last week. He took in the county convention and probably discovered that Kossuth has lost nothing of her former fine work in politics. C. E. Heise attended tho state grand lodge meeting of K. P's. at Muscatine last week, and reports a big gathering. C. P. Kuohuls of Denison was chosen grand chancellor. He was a university boy back in 18SO, and is making a big success over west. Mr. and Mrs. Dick Rist came home last week for a short visit. Ho is holding a responsible position in the Northern Pacific offices at Tacoma and could only get away for a week. This is Mrs. Rist's first visit to Algona and all of Dick's old friends are pleased to meet her. GET your crackers at tho Opera House grocery. Then you will be sure to get fresh ones.

This is by far tho largest attendance that ever wan recorded at any previous institute on the opening morning. It is a remarkable coincidence that since it requires just 180 teachers to fill tho schools, there should be present just enough to iill them. The four divisions were down to solid work at twenty minutes past 8 o'clock with Prof. Shoup in charge of the As, Mrs. Barber with the Bs, Prof. Dixson with the Cs, and Prof, Davidson with the Ds.

Mrs. Fife, mother of Mrs. Dr. Armstrong, and one of the members of 1857, died at about 80 years of age at her daughter's home in Irvington. The funeral was held Saturday. Mr. and Mrs. Fife came to the county among the first and opened a farm just east of the Mann farm on the Irvington road. They were well known to all early comers, and had a finely cultivated place. W. A. Chipman announces himself this week as a candidate for the office of county treasurer. His candidacy, however, is subject to tho action of the republican convention, as he is a staunch party man and will not be a candidate on any other basis. Mr. Chipman was the nominee of the party two years ago, and consented to the use of his name at a time when there was but small show for any republican to be elected. Now that the conditions are changed he justly thinks he ought to have a show in the race. THE UPPER DES MOINES knows Mr. Chipman to be a man in eyery way fitted for the office of treasurer, and his nomination would insure our hearty support. The Courier has a sly way of get- ing its real sentiments before the public without seeming to. Some time ago it ran a "temperance column" on its patent side. Last week it published the folio wing in its Fenton n«ws: "We would beg to give some of ow young men a little advice about liquor iu com- p~a'hy. We would say to you that every JAS.

After "Gloria" had been sung Rev, Davidson invoked the divine blessing, which was followed by "The Silvery Sea"by the choir. Supt, Reed then made a few remarks, after which he introduced Mayor Call, who delivered an eloquent address of welcome to the 190 teachers present. The teachers responded by their representative, Miss Mildred Taylor of Burt, in a very touching and well- rendered response. Ruth E; Reed represented the school children of the county by reciting "The Face Against the Pane" in her usual happy manner.
