NEXT ATTRACTION, OCT. 10, DEWY HAYWOOD COMPANY, The finest musical entertainment ever given In Algoua, each member of the company being :m artist in his line, with testimonials from the leading conservatories In Europe. t^TSeats now on sale at Dlugley's. THE CITY CIRCUIT. Col. Ormsby speaks at Whittemore Monday evening. Supper at the Congregational church tomorrow evening. the winter on history. He will divide the work of the term into topics and each two weeks will sum up the period covered by the class. It will be a very great advantage to the students. The Fort Dodge and Webster City military companies will be here tomorrow to shoot on the rifle range if the weather is pleasant. Other companies nre expected but these will be here. The range hns been put in good order for their visit, nnd some good shooting is expected. Everybody was surprised that the name of L. C. Smith was not mentioned at the democratic convention in connection with the legislature. It turns out that, if rumors can bo trusted, he is slated for deputy revenue collector in place of Mr. Gullixscn. That is a better thing than going to Des Moines. H. A. Lillibridgo v/ns unlucky enough to get his collar bone broken last Thursday. He was coming up from the fair and met some more Whitte- moreites, who asked him where he was going. He said that was his business, and they replied that they would make it their business, whereat the contending forces came together. It was three against one and the broken bono result- Lack of space prevents the publication of the public school report in full. It shows that while the number of school children is 8H less than lust year, the school enrollment is within one of last year. Last year 251 scholars were'neither absent or tardy Uio first month, this year there are ISiiO. The report shows a steady gain in good work. O. W, McMurrny is talking of putting a heating plant in ( o the Thoi'ing- ton yet this fall. Ho has been to big expense already and the financial pinch makes it a little difficult to carry out all his plans, but ho expects to have his house in shape to keep it warm all through before the cold weather catches us. Ho reports business improving, county, and then he will fight the note. A great many of these notes have been given in this section and almost always no return has been made. Doctors who want notes in advance are always frauds. Supt. Hughes of the Northwestern road arranged special trains north both Thursday and Friday nights on account of the fair and theatre in town. Friday morning on account of rain Agent "Vesper concluded that no one would want to go north and answered a dispatch from Eagle Grove to that effect and the train was ordered off. Then at 2:30 o'clock quite a party came for the theatre, expecting to go back at night. Mr. Vesper telegraphed to Eagle Grove and Assistant Superintendent Ashton went to work and made up a train and sent it through. The Northwestern officials have been very accommodating about putting on extra trains and have stopped at no trouble to convenience the public. They are entitled to substantial recognition their efforts. Down near LuVerne a new weed started that seems to be hard to rid of. Lasley Barton wrote to State Register a short time _ ago the agricultural editor says it is wild potato, and that it is hard to terminate. Mr, Barton says it began in a flax field and is now on several farms. Tlio Register says: It is a native of tho prairie states, but was not observed by tho writer in tho counties west of the Cedar until recently. It appears to have been introduced with seeds of grains and grassesbought farther east. In its eradication it needs tho " persistent cutting back'' required by the Canada thistle, yet it is much easier to get rid of than tho latter, as it does not extend its roots so rapidly. But every little piwo of its roots will grow, henco persistent cutting hack is the only sure method of running out. We also invite the ladies to look over our immense stock of Dry Goods. We never kept a more complete stock. Chrischilles Galbraith has a new advertisement and a lot of new goods. Miss Josie Foblin is up after a serious run of typhoid fever. A baby boy at O. W. deary's last Thursday is one of tho late arrivals. Dr. Pride cut a cancer from the lip of A. Evanson last week north of Burt. S. B. Reed has never heard a word from his broncho ponies since they left his barn. An exhibition of Delsarto is being arranged for next week's social union club meeting. Court opens a week from next Monday. This is Judge Thomas' only term during the year. The first boy at W. A. Ladendorff's caused great rejoicing Sunday morning. Everybody is doing well. The directors of the new building- and loan association met Monday and had over $21.000 of stock subscribed. J. B. Jones' nephew, Mr. Traumen- hauserof Minneapolis, is in Algona and will stay the larger part of the winter. World's fair rates are getting very cheap. Tickets from Algona are to be sold Friday at §9.25 for the round trip. Masons are at work rebuilding the cornice on the A. D. Clarke block. A defect in construction caused it to tip back. There seemed to be a regular outbreak of pugilism last week. A number of black eyes and broken bones are reported. Advertised letters for Mrs. M. Cawley, Wm. Curtis, Eddie Finnegan, S. K. Johnson, John Nuttle, are in the postoffice. The Courier is again worrying about the Sessions campaign. We should think that that adjourned convention would occupy all its time. Marriage licenses have been issued to J. H. Peterson and Anna F. Gustafson, J. W. Herman, and M. B. Gilmore, C. Madison and Mary Christiansen. Tho dedication of the Catholic church will occur as soon as the new archbishop gets . by the numerous duties that occupy his time now. W. S. Dorland returned yesterday from an extended business trip through the eastern states. With Mrs. Dorland and the boys he will go south tomorrow. A Dubuque man last week bought the Boals farm just west of Hobart and also 90 acres of the Rist quarter lying north of it. He paid $30 an acre, cash, and comes here to open a big farm. An attachment was issued yesterday on the property of Rendell of Ledyard, on the ground that he had covered his assets with chattel mortgages. Rendell was lately postmaster there, A mule offered on the street Saturday brought a bid of only $0, and a horse stopped at §3. But D. A. Haggard says cattle and hogs are selling at better prices than last year at his sales. The Jesuit fathers from St. Louis will open a mission at the Catholic church Sunday next, continuing a week. This is something in the nature of the revival meetings of protestant churches. Tho John Wallace farm, about half way to Whittemore, was sold a week ago to a Wisconsin man, a brother of Henry Klingelhofer. He says a number of farmers are coming here to locate. The Corse Payton company played to good houses last week considering the weather, and gave good satisfaction, They are first class in what they attempt and are just the kind of a troupe for a fair week. The Emmetsburg Reporter says: Miss Cora Hibbard has resigned her position as assistant postmaster at Algona, and is at present stopping with her sister, Mrs. Fitkin. She will teach near Cylinder the coming winter. W. L. Joslyn's Sycamore paper states that Daniel Pierce, whose trouble in Chicago was reported last week, is really insane and has been taken to the asylum. That will probably end the orphan home scheme in Dickenson, county. The opening democratic gun will be shot off Friday evening at the court house. Fred E. White, late congressman from the Sixth district, will address the people. Mr. White is said to be one of the best talkers on the stump, T j and everybody should hear him, f—j p<yr) C/ Mr. McElroy is to deliver a series of .£.•*• t/f*i/M(K» lectures at the normal school during for has get the and the ex- it and a good run of patronage. A new announcement this week brings T. W. Sarchet of Union township into the field as a candidate for the sheriff's office. Mr. Sarchet is an old soldier, havingjen listed in the 45th Ohio regiment, and is a well- known citizen. He would be a competent official and his claims should receive careful consideration although so lately put forward. If ho should be nominated ho would be a strong man on the ticket. Dr. Tribon has received notice that he has been appointed on the board of pension examiners. This means that either Dr. Sheetz or Dr. McCoy will retire. It is rumored also that Dr. Walters of Bancroft is to be appointed, thus reorganizing the whole board. All will be democrats, as Dr. Keneflck has already been appointed in Dr. Barr's place. All the old soldiers go off the board. Music lovers will have an opportunity the middle of this month of hearing one of the finest instrumental concerts that is on the road. The Dewey Haywood company will be at the opera house. Among them is the Euphonium player who gave a solo with the Iowa State band at the world's fair on the big Fourth of July programme. A flu'e player, cornetist, lady violinist, and others make up the company, all of them well-known artists. Full announcements will be made in due season. This morning's State Register has the following item: Ex-Sheriff Marsh Stevens of Kossuth county was in the city yesterday. "Republican prospects in the northwest are very bright," he told a reporter for the Register. " No republican up our way wants to see the democrats get control of the legislature and redistrict us out of existence. They would put two and three representatives in a county along the river, in democratic counties and the republican counties in the northwest would be bunched together, three or four in a district, and it would take a revolution to ever get a republican legislature again, We are red hot for Jackson. Nothing can obscure tho issues." County Attorney Raymond was up to Swea City again Friday on a beer case. S. P. Hagland, a leading merchant and democratic candidate for postmaster, was under arrest, but when the hay men, who were to prove the sale, were looked for they failed to show up. The constable made diligent search but not a witness could be secured and Mr. Hagland was dismissed. Swea City has enjoyed an unenviable notoriety for beer selling, but it is believed that there is no booze being dispensed at present. So much bad blood has been engendered in the arrests made already that no one dare sell, as he would be caught at once. Joseph Alderman had his left shoulder dislocated while ejecting a couple of pugilists from his billiard hall Thursday evening. They were Geo. Devine and young Brooks, who raised the rumpus on the race track in the afternoon. It was the climax of a long standing trouble which began a year ago, when Brooks went to Devine's wedding without an invitation. He got a good thrashing then, and the bride's brother, young Rahm, thrashed him once again in town. But Thursday he whipped Dovine. They were beginning their fight at Alderman's when he put them out. Dr, Morse fixed his arm up and he is well again. A smooth man Saturday showed again that there is always money enough if you know how to get at it. He had that old, old game of giving back the money to purchasers with a bonus. It has been worked in Algona a half dozen times, but this gentleman fared as well or better than any of his predecessors, and is credited with taking from $50 to f 100, He wrapped up $10 bills and big watches in a box and gave them to purchasers. The bills proved to be advertising paper, and the watches playthings. But he gave a lecture to his patrons, calling each by name, which entertained the crowd and no one objected to his carrying off the money. J. C. Raymond went to Traer Monday to defend in a suit for $90 brought against Mr. and Mrs. Henry Curran of Lu Verne township. It is on a note given to a fraudulent medical establishment on a contract to doctor the eyes of their daughter and cure them. The medicines were never sent as agreed and of course no benefit was received by the daughter, but the note turns up in the hands of a third party in Traer. Mrs. Curran did not sign it and Mr. Raymond expects to get a change of venue as to her to Koasuth PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. Mrs. Tennant is in Chicago. J. B. Jain is planning to move to Illinois. August Bromer is at the big fair this week. Mr. and Mrs. T. H. Conner wont to Chicago Monday. Bert. Edmonds camo up from Des Moines last week. J. J. Wilson returned Saturday from a visit to the big fair. Prof, and Will. Chaffco wore off last week attending the marriage of their sister. A. L. Goddard returned Monday from a four weeks' visit with relatives in Michigan. He also took in the big fair on his way home. Frank Benjamin came down last week for the fair and played the big drum for the band boys. He is still running a street car in Minneapolis. Addison Fisher and C. D. Pettibono left Sunday night for a trip in the east. Mr. Fisher goes to Maine and Massachusetts, where he has not been for 14 years, and Mr, Pettibone goes to Connecticut, where he has not been in 25 years. They will take in the big fail- on the way. J. W. Robinson is enjoying a visit from his cousin, Mr. Roe, who wont to school with him in New Hampshire and who is still living there. Mrs. Roe comes with him and they will spend a couple of weeks. Mr. Roe says that times are very hard in the east. All the big mills have shut down. The Amoskeag mills employ 8,000 men and they are closed. Charley Hoi started yesterday for Chicago and has left Algona. Sam Wing takes his laundry, and Charley intends to have the government send him to China if it will. He says it won't cost him a cent, so he wants to get back. Ho says sometimes a man makes more money in America and sometimes he makes more in China. He studied medicine two years in China and by studying one year more he can be a doctor and that is what he will do. He has bc.en in this country over 11 years. Don Louis, (TJixce Record 2:<17).
