Vernon road. He represented to her that ho and three other men were engaged in repairing the telephone line, and on that day were working near Indian creek, and that it was too far to return to the city for dinner and wanted Mrs. Oakes to furnish dinner for four men, for which he would pay her amply when he returned in the evening with hia horso and buggy. Mrs. Oakes, not suspecting that she was being victimized, filled a market basket with food, preserves, etc., and added knives, forks and drinking cups, and handed it to her pensioner, which he took and started eastward on tho Mt. Vernon road. This waa the last seen or heard of this shrewd scamp and Mrs. Oakes is minus her lunch basket, cutlery, and dishes. A new Iowa product is a gasoline traction engine, the invention of Mr. John Froelich of Waterloo. The one just turned out by a company in that city is 16 horsepower, weighs 10,000 pounds and consumes about 25 gallons of gasoline per day, which at 8 cents a gallon, amounts to $2. No engineer is required, as the engine runs from morning until night without any attention. Just before the Dos Moines schools closed the children attending them contributed a nickle each for the purchase of a fountain for the benefit of thirsty horses and humanity. The result is that on the east curb of the court house stands a beautiful bronze fountain ten feet in height; it is rectangular in form, and surmounted by a beautiful bronze statue of a woman holding a dove to her breast; it cost $290. It has three drinking places for persons, and a drinking trough for horses. Back of the court house is another fountain, fed by an artesian well 500 feet deep. The persons having the children's fountain in charge are striving to get the county board to furnish artesian water for it also; it is to be hoped that they will. The fountain will be dedicated when the public schools begin again. E. L. Sabin tells the Capital of the State University scientific expedition to the Bahamas: During three months that this expedition was away it visited Havana and'other points on the Cuban coast, Key West and the Florida Keys and the Bahama Islands. During this period the party was on the ocean constantly, save when squads were sent ashore on the islands for the purposes of collection and exploration. Mr. Sabin says he did not suffer with the heat while on the journey. The sea breeze lowered the temperature. Once while dredging off Sand Key, eight miles from Key West, the steamer was becalmed and the thermometer registered 132 on deck. On this occasion those in the party who could swim jumped overboard into the cool waters below. In Havana harbor a dog that was on board went mad and created a stampede as he ran about the vessel. Fortunately no one was bitten and the animal was killed. At Behia Honda, thirty miles west from Havana on the Cuban coast, the expedition was mistaken for a filibustering party, and the soldiers kept close watch. The mosquitoes here were unbearable and together-with the rainy season made the young ladies and gentlemen glad to leave so inhospitable a place. On arriving at Key West the schooner and inmates were sent into quarantine at the Dry Tortugas. From Key West the expedition sailed to Harbor Island and Spanish Wells on Eleuthera, one of the largest of the Bahama Islands. From this place the schooner went to Little Cat Island and then laid her course for home, arriving at Baltimore July 27. being right. They had won in the county convention and came out on top with a big T. They evidently have the Skinner consulship where Bancroft isn't in it, and where Bro. Skinner and his endorsement are permanently sidetracked. The Darr appointment is about as good us fixed, and tho democrats who did not vote right are punished in Lu- Verne. The tiino had come to hoist the flag of triumph, when here comes n dispatch from Fort Dodge. We give it without comment hoping that it will not break our machine until Wesley ami Whittemore have been attended to: The convention was the scene of the hottest political fight ever seen here. Tho Duncombo and Ryan factions, who are quarreling over tho distribution of federal patronage, wore the participants. The trouble started over tho admission of T. F. Brcen and J. B. But- lur as delegates. Mr. Brcon is tho Ryan candidate for the Port Dodge post- office, opposing Duneombo's son. Butler and Breen woro "crowded out of their ward caucuses by tho Duncombo supporters and came to the convention on proxies from another ward. Dun- combo protested emphatically against their admission as delegates. Captain Yeoman, who is also against Duncorabo, argued eloquently for their admission as good democrats and implored the convention to pay no attention to the personal fooling which moved Dun- combo to object. Duncombo admitted that the postofflce trouble caused his ill feeling. The wrangle lasted an hour, during which the convention resembled the New York stock exchange when a flurry is on. During the fracas one of the delegates moved that "the convention adjourn and all vote the republican ticket." Duncombe's organization stayed by him and the convention kicked out Breen and Butler by a vote of 63 to 9. The split is one that cannot be healed. Both sides admit that the result will be tho overwhelming defeat of the divided democracy in Webster county from the top to bottom of the ticket. Langdon & Hudson, Leaders in Flour.

The affairs of the bank are in first class shape, and the institution is entirely solvent, the embarrassment having been only temporary. Hon. Frank D. Jackson is to be given a grand reception upon his arrival in Des Moines next Friday evening by the republicans of Polk county, when his nomination will be ratified in the latest and most improved republican style. BUNCOMBE POBOES WIN, Beaten In Fort Victory In Kos- The Hyan Men Are Dodge-The Great ButH a Side Issue, Each week brings us some new cause of discomfort in our efforts to keep our Algona democratic managers fairly before the public. This time just as we were about to sound the tinkling cymbals for them, comes the news from Fort Dodge that the Ryan forces have been cleaned out, and that Buncombe is on top. This is particularly untimely. Everything was pn the point pf of Col. Clarke. R. B. Patterson stopped in Algona a day last week on his way to Spokane from the eastern markets. C. C. St. Glair is back from a five weeks' trip to Chicago and other points. He came home from Kentucky. C. D. Pettibone is at Des Moines with the faithful and Uncle Steve is buying butter and swapping stories in his place. Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Nicoulin, Ollie Salisbury, and Miss Myrtle Nicoulin started Sunday evening for the world's fair city. Chester Call came home Saturday for a week's vacation. He has been doing extra work at school during his vacation, Miss Jessamine Jones was at Clear Lake visiting at Dr. Charlton's. She and Miss Charlton were school mates at Iowa City. Presiding Elder Black was in town last week. His father and mother from Nova Scotia are visiting him at Eagle Grove. Misses Anna and Cornie Ingham went to Omaha Saturday to visit Mrs. Chas. W. Russell. Miss Anna goes from there to Chicago, where her school work begins soon, Misses Bertha Mann, Emma and Susie Gilbert, Minnie Rice, Gertrude Paine, and Sadie Taylor went to Chicago together Monday, for the fair. They will represent the teachers there. Bro. Platt was over from Forest City yesterday. He says Eugene Secor and the other prohibitionists in that section are satisfied with the republican platform, and that this is a bad year for democrats over in Winnebago, Mr, and Mrs. John Earth and Mrs. Amolsch, and daughter, all of the Lake Superior country, the ladies sisters of the Winkels of this place, are visitors here at a kind of reunion of the familv of Winkels. ^ y S. S, Sessions was up Monday on business, returning in the evening. He is busy with the state fair and will be for the next three weeks. After that ha will come back and attend to politics. There will be plenty of time for the campaign to begin after that. Eugene Tellier and D. B. Avey will start in a couple of weeks for the Indianapolis Grand Army meeting, prepared to do or die in the five mile race. Both have been practicing and will be in good trim when the time comes. Sept. 6. J. B. Jones will move to^Des Moines with his family and make his home there hereafter. He owns several houses in the city and will use one of them for himself. Mr. Jones has been an active business factor in Algona, but this move probably severs his intimate connection with the town.
