He is one of the amous lecturers of the country. Noth- ng better has ever been given in Al- •ona. S. S. Wartman, formerly of LuVerne, was in Algona last week looking for a meant house. He had difficulty in inding one, but expects to come to Algona to live. Miss Lizzie Wallace gave a declama- ion at the social union club Friday vening, Miss Banks sang a solo which vas encored, and Misses Maud and Kate Imith gave a fine duett. All stock this year is to be passed on >y expert judges from outside the coun- y at the county fair. Let hog, cattle, .nd sheep breeders, as well as horse ,nd cattle men, take notice. John Goeders came from Chicago Saturday with one of the biggest stocks 10 has ever put in. He believes the armors are going to do well this year nd that trade will be lively. Senator Chubb started for Dakota Saturday to look over the cattle situa- ion out'there, whether to buy or sell e do not knovy. Capt. Tyrrell and Mr. Window were in Algona last week to ee him. Members of the marriage association ho are not getting married are in hai'd uck, Three or four weddings are rumored right here in the midst of hard imes, and each one means $10 to the ther members. S. B. Reed is building a warehouse or his creamery supplies at the Northwestern depot. It is 20x50 feet and 'ill give him room for his growing usiness. C. L. Lund has also put up n ig coal shed there. Some three weeks ago Rev. Dorward ft'ered his resignation as pastor of the Baptist church, but Sunday by unanimous vote he was requested to with- raw it.

Jnion is getting lots of fine improvements the past few years. Cards are out for the marriage of rohie Hutchinson and Miss Edith Dall, which is to occur tomorrow even- ng. They are among Algona's most stitnable young people, and a host of ood wishes will attend them. Chas. Parsons, son of Levi Parsons of rvington, was out hunting the first f the week, when by accident the gun n the hands of a companion went off t close range »nd filled hi9 hack full of fine shot. He was so close that th shot went in an inch and a hal'f. Drs Garfield and McCoy were called an fixed him up, but it will be some tim before he can sit down with comfort. Judge Cliggett, the democratic nom nee for supreme judge, is the attorne who defended in the Sehichtl divorc case in Algona. He has also been her several times at democrat rejoicing? He is a life-long democrat and a goo lawyer. Rev. W. H. Dorward and wife hav gone to Chicago for a few weeks. I the paster's absence the pulpit will b filled by E. P. McElroy. The reguln covenant meeting will occur Saturda v at 2:80. Special business requires full attendance. John Goeders, Sr., who has been sic for some six months, comes home fron Chicago with the assurance that h has cnncer of the stomach. He wen there with his son fora thorough med ical examination. Mr. Goeders is 6 years old and htis been a well-known citizen for many years. Landlord Tonnant had another tin lucky experience last week. Thursda; night while he was sleeping someone invaded his bedroom and took §37 from his trousers pocket, leaving his etnptj purse on the floor. He has no idea who it was, but it was evidently someone who Vi'afi acquainted ivith the house anc bis roojn. The county fttir will be on handngah ^n a little over three weeks. There will be special attractions this year, anc t is the intention to have the most en Lertnining show yet given, as well as the largest exhibit. The premiums ire worth getting.

Nieoll, N. A. Shultz, Jos Skipsey, Mrs. Leroy Smith, Leonard A, Spears, Mrs. Alfred Stanton, Dominic Stuflock, Esq., Miss Gei'tio Wiegand. A trade was made last week by which John Grove is in possession of the Howard hardware store. Ho intends to ceep the business up and will give his lime to it. John is an experienced )usiness i man and will have no trouble n working up a good custom. Wo are jlad to see this store get into such good lands. Germaniahas organized a creamery company and has put in a fine, new jlant. This is a good move. Kossuth's ireameries have done more to keep 'eady money in the county and prevent the effects of the panic being felt than all other things together. There hould be a half dozen more than there ire, and we are pretty well supplied already. D. B. Avey has just received an order from the pension department to re>ort at Emmetsburg and be re-exam- ned for his pension. He says he shall not obey, as they undoubtedly have him on the list. He was examined two ears ago and is getting 36 a month. The pension ax is about the only effect- 've part of the government machinery. The special lecture of the institute course is to be given tomorrow evening it the church by Jahu Do Witt Miller 3f New York. Mr. Miller is a speaker >f note and all place his lecture at Spirit Lake among the best giyen there his summer. The lecture is free and he church should be packed. It will be a rare opportunity for all. Bro. Hinchon was up at the populist lonvention yesterday helping arrange i county ticket for the delegates. Whether he was about to meet any uccess or not will never be known, for before he hud got fairly started some ne recalled his management for Dr. Bourne two years ago, and the conven- ion winked its eye and proceeded to ither business. We now have it on good authority hat either Mayor Thompson of Ban- roft or L. C. Smith of Algona will run against Col. Sessions. If this is cor- 'ect we have no doubt that it will be Mr. Smith, as our Algona boys have ieen able to side-track Banci'oft once ndcan probably do it again. We are orry, for THE UPPER DES MOINES Ivrays had a friendly side for Mr. Thompson. THE UPPER DES MOINES has made 0 note of the marriage of Dr. Will Burnard to Miss Holman. It occurred ,bout four weeks ago. Dr. Burnard is till holding a position at the hospital t Independence. Rev. and Mrs. Burard now live near Chicago and their on Ed and his wife live with them, liss Kate has been teaching music in Winterset the past year and Miss Julia s still in the Grinnell public schools. W. B, Quarton goes to Clarion this eok to defend Bowman, who is under rrest there for forgery. He will be ssisted by Mr. Birdsall, who was here 1 the Clark-Ellsworth case. Bowman s the blue sky, horse racing, and all- round loafer who spent some time in Igona, and who has been in jail all ummer awaiting trial. The case will e bitterly contested, but it is unlikely lat forgery can be proved. Miss Effle Stutsman, who was chosen o teach in the schools this fall, had nade other arrangements when her ontract was forwarded, and the board aye chosen Miss Maxwell, also of Des doines to, fill the vacancy, She is a aughter of the John S, Maxwell whose ame is often seen in the Register ap- ended to contributions on various opics, and she also comes with excel- ent recommendations. This week brings out the first repub- can candidate for sheriff in the per- on of Geo, C. Platt. Mr. Platt came o Cresco about six years ago, and for ome time has been engaged in con- racting and building in Algona. He s a young man, energetic, capable, and roll liked by all. The sheriff's office is ne that he would be well suited to and is candidacy would be strong with the eople if he should be selected. A convention of about 25 populists vas held at the court house yesterday nd J. E. Blackford, Thos. Hanna, and i, E, Davison were chosen delegates to le state convention which is to be eld at Des Moines, Tuesday, Sept. 6. 'o resolutions were adopted; but some f those present say that it is hoped' hat the populists and prohibitionists an agree upon a state ticket. No ac- ion was taken as to a county ticket ere. They may nominate a candidate or the legislature. The announcement of I. P. Harrison f LuVerne as a candidate for county reasurer appears in this issue, Ru- mors of his candidacy have been cur rent before, but this makes it certain Mr. Harrison has been a resident o LuVerne for many years, has bee highly esteemed in business and soeia relations, is a young man fully qual fled for the office. Should he be nom inated we believe he would receive i cordial and hearty support. The Northwestern road wilt run iti special state fair trains, beginnin Monday. They will leave Bancroft a 4 o'clock, a. m.; Burt, 4:14; Algona 4:35; Irvington, 4:40; LuVerne, 5:03 They arrive at Des Moines at 9:35 ii in the morning. In the evening the; leave at 0:15 from Dos Moines and ge to Algona at 11:57. Tbo fare for th rund trip is $3.70, which brings a da at the fair within reach of all. Th great spectacle, "Tho Last Days o Pompeii," will run all the week at tin Athletic parlc, within a few blocks o the heart of llio city. The week's crop report for the slut dated yesterday says: Tho amount o rainfall was very light and poorly dis tributed, the larger part of the statt receiving nono. Under, these condi tions corn is maturing rapidly, and ex copt in a few localities will make a gooc crop without more rain. Ruin is great ly needed, however, in noarly all sec tions for pastures, and to facilitate plowing. A good beginning has bcci made in plowing, and in the southern districts some fall grain has been planted. With favorable weather there will be a large increase in the acreage of fall wheat. Tho Thorington houso wagonotto if about the handsomest vehicle on the streets. It arrived last Friday ant costs Landlord McMurray an oven §400 It opens up in summer, and for wintei has some side sashes which make it closed 'bus, and in all seasonsis alight, comfortable, and stylish hotel wagon Mr. McMurray is sparing no expense in making the Thorington houso first 3lass, and ho tells us that he is getting his share of the patronage and all ho could expect at this season. His advertisement appears in each issue, ant we can heartily recommend his house to the public. Prof. Chaffee's lecture Friday oven- ing, before the social union club, drew the largest audience that has been out to any of its entertainments thus far. Many of the teachers attending the institute were out, as he was to talk on their business. Tho professor spoke without notes, in a clear, well-modulatec voice, and his address covered about an hour. It was pointed, spicy, and epigrammatic, and filled with sharp criticisms of many methods of teaching. It suggested what should be done largely by pointing out what should not be done, and it attacked freely what are ilearly some of the flagrant evils o] uch public school work. Prof. Chaf- :ee was applauded liberally. He is off this week speaking at several institutes. A new project for city lighting is bong investigated. Last week Wm. Buxton of Minneapolis appeared to introduce a universal gas, which he says ;an be made very cheaply, and which s being used in several cities. It is nade of crude oil and air, 95 per cent, of the latter, and gives a white, power- 'ul light. At a small gathering ol susiness men Saturday evening he ex- libited a lamp, and a committee was appointed to visit one of the towns us- ng the gas. Gardner Cowles and F. 3.. Vesper were chosen, and will dur ing the coming week see what there is of merit in this plan. If the gas is what it is represented to be it can be jut in at a tenth the cost electricity n, and furnish equally as desirable a ight. You can get all the brick you want at the Algona brick yard.—23t2 WE still lead in the matter of choice .utter. M. Z. Grove & Son. Sale of Household Furniture. As Mrs. A.

At the bedside of the iuffering his presence seemed always to jive confidence, and the patient tool- courage along with his medicine. He ever thought less of the fee than of the patient, and delighted in the recovery }f the sick. The pleasure of the convalescent in returning health was quailed by his pleasure in contribut- .ng to such a result, while the death of one of his patients always affected him painfully, and in the latter years of his practice such an event would make him seriously ill. Though eminently social, ho loved ;he haunts of nature no loss than the launts of men. He loved the free air of the untrodden prairie, and would sot out to visit the sick in some lonely cabin miles from any other houso, per- laps driving the greater part of the light, as cheerfully as to make a call in town. He was a born pioneer, Tho removal of his father's family, when he was a ioy, from Vermont to northern New York, and later to Ohio, stimulated his uitural loye of change and adventure, In early manhood ho removed to Indiana, and thence to Iowa in 1805. From lore he made excursions into Dakota as early as 187.1, and later ho visited the Black Hills. He never seemed lappier than when pushing out on the rentier, with unexplored regions be- 'ond. He was deeply thrilled and affected >y music, and always regretted that ho lad not been taught to sing. He did not claim to be a poet, yet there was some poetry in his soul. The follow- ng lines written by him many years ago show the bent of his taste and eeling: Thy word Is truth, how just its claim! Let Jew and Greek that word proclaim. From land to land, from sea to sea, Let blessings ever rise to Tliee. All tongues above with one accord, Unite as one to praise their Lord. Their harps they tune, their voices raise, To celebrate their maker's praise. Ye stars I His outer courts ye light, Through boundless space there Is no night. Your heavenly lamps are always trimmed, From age to age they burn undimued. Ye orbs whose birth with time besan, Bear witness to the immortal plan. Ye speak His power in every lino, Ye mark His glory all divine. Redeemed of God from sin and woe, Why stand ye idle here below? The work is great, the Held is wide, For all mankind the Savior died.
