He is one of the wittiest and most pleasing speakers in lown, and will set forth republicanism in ringing fashion. J. C. Stahl has his tools at the city well, but has not begun work. It is his intention to put in two points and another screen. These it is thought will keep the open well full. At present the well just about keeps equal to the consumption, which is light. County Attorney Raymond was called to Ledyard Monday to prosecute Peto Malin, who had boon arrested on the charge of selling mortgaged property. An Investigation showed that Maun had authority to sell, and he_ was dismissed on Mr. Raymond's motion. Chris. Bell, south of Whittemoro, nearly lost his home last week by fire. The flames were discovered in the roof, but the men were at home and the water tank near the house was full and no great damage was done. About a rod of roof and cornice was burned off. Tho consumption of city coal was accelerated oyer at tho water works by spontaneous combustion ono day last week. The steam arid smoke from tho pile gave ample warning and the fire was put out without any damage being done further than knocking out the ond of tho shed it was in. Bro. Platt, our, former LuVnrno warrior, says in the Forest City Summit: "Kossuth county republicans placet] an exceptionally strong ticket in the field at their convention held at Algona the other day."

All the Des Moines papers announce it as one of the chief attractions of the season there. It is rumored that John Grove will occupy one of the Gardner Cowles fronts with his hardware, and that Jas. Patterson will put a grocery m the other. Bancroft will have a big republican meeting Friday evening. Col. J. W. Ouster of Illinois, one of the best stumpers in the west, will speak. It will be a big meeting. A marriage license was issued Monday for tho marriage of one of Bancroft's most charming young ladies, Miss Bess Bomboy. W. M. Chase of Cedar Rapids is the lucky man. C. B.

Gay, who has been a resident of Algona for several years, will go to his old home in California next month to remain. He bus been with J. J. Wilson for some time, but will give up this position.

Julius Pleth went over to Waukon last week for some trotting horses he had traded for. He didn't bring the horses, but secured a law suit instead. The horses were not as represented and he refused to take them. Melzar Haggard was in Mason City last week on business and found 15 traveling men who were planning to make Algona tomorrow to be here for the ''Masked Ball." Over 20 seats have also been ordered from Burt. Vernon Tubbs of Hobart and Miss Eva Ranney, daughter of F. E. Banney of Fenton, were married last week. Both are well known and highly esteemed, and congratulations go with them from a wide circle of friends. A lot of Algonians went to Burt last evening to hear Mr. Risely of Kansas. He failed to show up and A. A. Brunson made a rousing little speech, while B. F. Reed.S. Mnyne, and others talked briefly. S. S. Sessions spoke ten minutes, and the glee club sang songs. The hall was filled and tho Burt band enlivened things. The Dubuque Telegraph says editorially: " 'Incog' and the 'Masked Ball,' the two plays which tho Telegraph specially commended to local theatre goers, were presented at tho Grand Opera house last week and fully justified all that was said of them." The play tomorrow night is as good as anything that visits Iowa. A telegram in the Minneapolis Journal dated at Parker, S. D., Monday, states that Richard L. Gray, in attempting to board a moving train on the Milwaukee road, fell and had both legs taken off, and is now in a very critical condition. Mr. Gray is one of the brothers who lived at Wesley, and a well-known man in the east part of Kossuth. He has since died. The Bancroft Register reports a milk contest at the Seneca creamery for September between Poter Jensen and Albert Jacobson: Each milks 20 cows, and the result was as follows: Peter Jensen sold 9,231 pounds of milk, test 4 2. price $1.10 a hundred; check$101.54. Albert Jacobson sold 9,000 pounds, test 4 1 price $1.08; check $104.32. Tho price for September was $1.10 for average test milk. The Burlington Hawkeyo of last Friday gives the "Masked Ball" company a quarter column notice praising it without reserve. In conclusion it says: "The company goes west from here, then south for tho winter months. It is all-in-all up to tho standard of Frohman's excellence and will ever command a hearty reception from Burlington's theatre goers. D. H. Sotchell ia a fisherman who has the proper pluck. Last week ho got a fine pickerel on his hook, but tho lino broke and tho fish took most of it with him. But out in the river it got tangled and Mr. Setchell saw that ho still had a chance, so without any hesitation he sti'ipped off and wont out where the water was ovor his head and secured the lino and tho fish. It was the best catch of the day. school houses. On Sundays we turned them into churches. 1 nave thd hofiof, as dtfectO^ of building the first ffafae school house in this township, , And I think I am safe in easing the third in the county." Mr. Walker was in Monday on his way to the big fair. The " Masked Ball." like all of Frohman's plays, is refined throughout. There is nothing coarse or vulgar in any comedy put on by one of his companies. All are clever and amusing in a way which offends no one. The company coming tomorrow is as good as visits Iowa at all, can be seen at half the price that would be paid at any other theatre, and THE UPPER DES MOINES would urge all who enjoy theatricals at all to make it a special object to attend. The performance will be much above the average that can be expected in a town no larger than Algona, and much bettor than will soon come again. A matter of importance in the coming election is the vote on the county jail. There has been but little discussion, probably' because everybody has concluded that wo might us well face the music one time as another and put a stop to the half-way measures that we have been trying. Our late prisoners have been kept at big expense at Mason City. Without special guards it is not considered safe to leave dangerous criminals in our basement cells, and even if the cages were safe the basement is so likely to be unhealthy that it cannot bo relied on, Basement jails have failed everywhere because bmng in tho court house anyone can approach without exciting suspicion, the windows are convenient for handing in tools, and no cage will resist expert iail breakers with proper instruments. A special jail building would be free from approach from tho outside, the windows are very high, and assistance is practically out of the question. Coroner Sheets was called to Nick Marso's farm south of Irvington Sunday lo view the remains of Franz Arnold, who hud been asphyxiated in a well Saturday afternoon, Arnold and Starks were digging the well and Arnold had gone down in the morning and removed a stone. In the afternoon the rods got out of order and ho went down again. After he was in a few rods Starks asked him something and got no answer. A groan was heard a.nd ho was pulled out as rapidly as possible. When about 16 foot from the surface he fell out of the loop and went down in the well, wedging in before he came to tho bottom. Tho others went to work with hooks to get him out. Once they brought him near the top, but his coat tore and he fell to tho bottom. It was 10 o'clock in the evening when he was finally brought out. Dr. Sheetz impanneled a jury and they found that his death was due to gas. A light was lot into tho well, but went out before it was down 25 feet. Arnold was about 25 years old.

Peck's iine farm house in Fenton burned to tho ground last week. His tenant, Fred Johnson, was moving out and had about half his goods so- cured when the flames wore discovered in the second story. Mrs. Johnson tried to stop tho firo, but failed, and then all efforts wore directed to saving goods. But little was lost, but tho house burned to the foundations, and the iino grove was badly damaged. The house cost $1,500 and the total loss is over $2,000. It was insured in the county mutual for §1,000. It is reported that Geo. Glennan, who was in charge of the lumber yard here at one time, was found dead in his bed in Milwaukee about two weeks ago. George had been taking the Keeley cure for opium and whiskey habits. He was a good business man but for opium, but that and whiskey ruined him. The last time he was in Algona he was on a four-weeks' bum and his brother came to take him away. They got as far as Wesley, when George got off the train and came hack. He was in his brother's room when he died. Spirit Lake is getting one of the finest buildings in Iowa.
