THE CITY CIRCUIT. to which we call the attention of the ladies. Our Cloaks are all of The Latest Styles; nice and fresh; we had no old ones left over. We bought from the eastern manufacturers and can sell them cheap. We also invite the ladies to look over our immense stock of Dry Goods. We never kept a more complete stock. Chrischilles Jas. Taylor has a new announcement this week. Jas. On- has a big painting job over at Wesley. Bennett Mitchell is, we learn, booked for a speech at Algona, but the date is not known. Dr. Morse walked from LuVerne to Algona in less than three hours Monday. He holds the medal. Hon. W. T. Wilkenson will speak at LuVerne Monday evening, Oct. 16, and advocate the republican cause. Dr. Garfield is adding to the appearance of state street by having a fine new front put on his office building. Geo.Galbraith is brick veneering his buildings on the Ford corner, and adding a 20 foot addition to one of them. A young man named McLain was bound over to meet the grand jury last week at Bancroft for stealing a bicycle. It is reported that a Northwestern engine set a fire Monday north of Bancroft and that it went to Swea City before it was put out. Over 800 tons of hay were burned. Mike Smith's son in the south end of the county has bought 120 acres of the old Kinsey Carlon farm. Mike is one of the county's pioneers and his son was born and raised here. The mission at tho Catholic church begins next Sunday instead of last, as was announced by us last week. It will continue a week, and be conducted by Jesuits from St. Louis. The best instrumental musical concert ever given in Algona will bo heard next Monday evening. Every member of the company is first class, and the opera house should be filled. It took a flat car to bring the two panes of glass for the Cowles building front. The freight alone is in the neighborhood of $40. They are the largest lights ever brought here. D. B. Avey has been reinstated on the pension rolls until his new examination is heard from. He went to Emmetsburg but the report of the medical board has not reached Washington. H. A. Lillibridge was in town Saturday to have his broken collar bone reset. The plaster holding it before had slipped and let the bones out of place. Dr. Pride fixed him up. He has a bad fracture. It is announced that J. M. Joseph, populist candidate for governor, will speuk in Algona next Monday at 1 o^clock in the afternoon, and at Bancroft the same evening at 7:30 o'clock. All should hear what he has to offer. J. C. Raymond defended the snide doctor note given by Henry Curran so successfully at Traer last week that tho plaintiff dismissed his action, and the judge gave a judgment of $30 against him to pay Mr. Raymond's expenses, Advertised letters aro in the postof- fice for John H: Clark, Miss Etta Cleary, Miss Amy Howell, Sylvester Hill, Mrs. Mabel Miller, Mary Palmer, Mrs. Mary Palmer, Mrs. Widow Smith, Miss Mattie Stuck, L. E. Stuck, A. M. Thompson, Mrs. Mary Yahr. Mr. Ferris is here from Missouri in the interests of a brother of Harry Walkley looking up some matters with reference to a 40-acro tract once owned by Mr. Walkley near the Milwaukee depot. Geo. E. Clarke has been retained by him for one of the heirs. Charley Grimm, who won $600, a gold medal, and the world championship at Chicago last week is a member of the Algona shooting club and enters as such at all the state shoots. He is one of Algona's team in shooting for the state trophy. The Algona gun club is feeling its oats these days. The case of Miss Cunningham against the Northwestern railway comes on at this term. This results from the wreck at Ames, where she was thrown out in the snow with her father. The company settled with him for the injuries of both, but she coming of age sues in her own right, and asks $2,000. The new announcement of the normal school this week will attract attention. The constantly increasing attendance W. B. Quartan goes to Peoria, 111., Monday to attend to a case he has there which involves $4,000. It grew out of a land sale by the bank of Biggsville to Mr. Illig. The bank was unable to give the deed when the time came, and Mr. Illig sues for the enhanced value of the land. A demurer to Mr. Qunr- ton's petition has been filed and it will be argued next week, As fine a sight as tho county affords can be had for nothing but the trouble of driving south far enough to get a view of the Irvington and Cresco flat. Tho thousands of stacks of hay are so thick that the plain looks like a gigantic sheep pasture. A handsomer landscape would be hard to find anywhere than these miles of hay stacks that stretch out before tho eye. A suit at this term is brought to set aside the will of S. I. Plumley. Mrs. Shadle is the plaintiff and tho ground is undue influence used to get one-third of his estate for Miss Boulah Dickenson. Mr. Plumley was taken care of by Miss Dickenson during his sickness and he gave her one-third of his. property and left Mrs. Shadle, his only daughter, without a share. It Is a curious fact that mon and animals go in circles when they are bewildered. It is said that, Will Piatt's team after they were scorched in tho prairie fire Friday tramped round and round until the place where they were found WHS like a circus ring. Tho flesh was burned so that it hung from them in strips, and they were killed at once. No reason that is satisfactory has yet been given for this circling about. Col. Ormsby had a good crowd at Whittemore Monday evening and made a good political speech. Sid. Foster was to have been there with him but failed to appear and his place was taken by local talent. Mayor Boyle made a rousing little speech, as did also B. W. Haggard and S. S. Sessions. The new hall was well filled and there is plenty of enthusiasm for republicanism is that section. Is Mr. Lund going to advocate local option for Kossuth county? Does he want the old-fashioned rows to return i 1 Does he believe that it is right or sensible to enforce prohibition in one township and put a saloon in tho nexti* Does he believe in saloons in country townships as provided in the Schmidt bill? Does he want it so time the only issue is " whiskey men" aguinst cranks," us it used to be? WAS belfig washed, One day whefl It was on the line ft pig got it and ate it up, Whereupon the colonel Bftgely re* taafked! "Them that has must lose." The outcome of the sensations about Lee Horning and his property is a suit in this term of court. His son ask£ to have the claims of his aunt, in . whose name Lee did business, set aside and the property actually found turned over to him. His story is that Lee, after the attachment put on him in the case brought by R. ,T. Danson. always did business in the name of his brother-in- law, and when he died In his sister's name. But the property was his all the time. His sister, however, senther lawyer here at Lee's death and took possession of everything, claiming it as her own. Geo. E. Clarke Is bringing the suit and a lawyer from Pennsylvania is defending. It revives an interest- Ing story, but it don't promise to unearth that pot of gold that Lee was supposed to have hidden. We are receiving our. Fall and Winter Stock -**• that for nil going to be " temperance Dewey Heywood is the flute player at the concert next Monday. The New York World says of him: " Dewey Hoy wood, the flute soloist, created a sensation with his exquisite playing. It has never been our good fortune to hear a better artist." Flora DreScher plays the violin. The Boston Globe says of her: u Her playing was superb in the various numbers and stamps her as an artist of the highest order of excellence." Scott Hoy wood plays the cornet. The Cincinnati Enquirer says: " W. Scott Heywood, who is delighting crowds by his brilliant performance on the cornet, is steadily gaining popularity." Clint Heywood plays the euphonium. He was the solo performer of tho Iowa State band at its big world's fair concert, July 4th. Clara Mae Bryant is the reader and impersonator, and Max Kramm is pianist. All have the highest testimonials. Geo. Mackay's boys, over in Crosco, setalittloflre Friday to burn some stubble. When the fire was put out it had burned over a section of hay, Will Piatt's team, 60 tons of hay for Will Potter, and done other damage, besides drawing about 100 men out to fight it. The loss is very heavy for Mr. Platt, who lost about $1,000 worth of hay, barely saving his press. His hand was badly burned. But his son Will was more severely burned about tho head. He started his team as soon as tho fire broke away and tried to go through, but the flames were so fierce that they stopped the horses and burned them so they had to be shot. He ran forward and plunged through, but was caught in a whirl of fire and barely escaped with his life. He Is seriously Injured. The fire was the result of carelessness and in the high wind the only wonder is that no greater destruction resulted. NEW stock of carpets, portiers, lace curtains, at Galbraith's.

JAS. TAYLOR. has decided Prof. Chaffee to devote his whole time to the school, although he has more teachers than ever before, and the prospect is that the winter term will be the best in every way in its history.

Chairman Davis sen r -3 us the following challenge which is addressed to chairmen and nominees of the republican and democratic parties of this district: "The committee hereby challenges your nominees to meet M. DeL. Parsons, populi'it nominee, in joint debate on the political issues of the day at such time and place as may be agreed upon by the said committees and the time to be occupied by each speaker." Yesterday's Des Moines Leader has another chapter from Washington about tho Skinner consulship. The leaders evidently not satisfied with having side-tracked him, are now making fun of him, for this item is to the effect that he has never had any papers filed, that Richardson never heard of him, etc., etc., and is in a very happy strain. The facts we, of course, do not know, but it seems to us the democratic managers ought to be satisfied with beating him after he had won his chance, without making game of him in the bargain. Is this funny work inspired in Algona? An amusing incident occurred during ex-Congressman White's speech- Peter Purvis and G. H. Lamson were sitting in front and the speaker desired to refer to members of tho democratic and republican parties and picked them cut. But he chose Mr. Purvis for the republican and Mr. Lamson for tho democrat. The audience cheered at the mistake. Mr. Purvis says he was picked for the republican because tho speaker thought the republicans are the best looking men. But Mr. Lnm- son is having a hard time in finding out what there is about him that he should be picked out for a democrat. Manager Haggard has booked a few of the very best attractions on the road for tho opera house here. Oct. 20 the " Masked Ball" will be given by Chas. Frohman's company. The character of this performance is known to everybody. It is as good as anything that comes to Iowa, Nov. 0 the Schilling minstrels will bo here. This is one of the high grade companies of the country. Jan. 20 the " Merry Cobbler" Is engaged, a very amusing and clever comedy. Negotiations are under way tooecure Rhea. Everybody will appreciate that the very best entertainments are being secured, and that the opera house should be supported liberally. We missed the speech of ex-Congressmen White last Friday evening, but the prevailing report is that it was not a very good stump speech. As Mr. White is credited with being a strong speaker this must be due to his awkward attitude in this campaign. He is an able advocate of free silver coinage and voted for it in congress, and is not at all friendly to the saloon system. He couldn't advocate silver because Gov. Boies has " eliminated" that, and he couldn't advocate the saloon because he don't believe in it, and so he didn't have much to say worth saying. When he began the court room was comfortably filled. Not over half the audience remained to hear him out. Supt. Reed did not attend church Sunday morning, contrary to hie usual custom. The occasion was a failure late Saturday aight to ft n d any trace oj all his shirts and collars, which bad been intrusted to Charley Hoi for renovating. He showed bis Chinese ticket; to Saw Wing, but all Sam could say was " Charley no good." »•»£ ».»i u $??* search t>f the premises failed to oil- close any garments.
