Hot oysters in the even- ng. The Schilling minstrels, which come next Monday evening, arc everywhere spoken of as one of the best companies on the road. M. D.

August Dinger had a runaway at Bancroft Monday and got badly injured. He was cut and kicked about the head and face, and is seriously hurt. A big crowd gathered at Kunz' hall n Wesley last night to hear M. D. O'Connell. He made a splendid speech and was enthusiastically applauded. D. A. Haggard has been called to Hedwing, Minn., on account of the illness of his sister, and will be absent a veok attending to her business affairs.

Thompson of ^orthwood are married. THE UPPER )ES MoiNES congratulates. May good ortune be theirs. Carter's delivery wagon up on top of Hamilton's lumber shed this morning vas tho most conspicuous evidence hat Haloween came last night. Other eviltry is reported. A sizable addition is being made to ho building John Grove's hardware is n and he will soon have room for his ig stock of goods. He will remain vhere he is with his store. Bro. Hinchon still fails to say wheth- r Dr. Heflin should be elected coro- ier. He pays no tax and Dr. Morse oes. And Dr. Heflin was nominated n Bro. Hinchon's suggestion. Henry George, a Milwaukee railway nan, tried a double back summersault rom a box car at Hobart one day last week. He struck on his head in a cinder pile, but came out without damage. When a boy M. D. O'Connell taught chool in T. H. Lantry's home town in Wisconsin and boarded with Mr. Lanry's cousin. He paid 81.60 a week for ioard and says he never lived better in iis life. Mr. and Mrs. J. H, Call spent a day n town last week, being over from Los Angeles seeing the fair. Harry was jreeted by his old-time acquaintances with pleasure. He is growing stout ,nd heavier. The cases of Sheriff Graham for the njuries to his wife, and of the Idaho orse trader against M. Richardson for he drove of horses that caused so much rouble last fall, both come on at Fort Dodge in about two weeks. A large number from Algona and Burt went to Bancroft Friday evening o hear Col. Custer of Illinois, and W. . Ken worthy of Oskaloosa. The Algona band went along. The meeting was a ig one and the speakers made republicanism .popular. Tbe Chippewa Falls Daily Independent of last Thursday gays of Schil-r llng'8 minstrels: "The best mlnstre show which has ever visited this cit, appeared at the opera house last even ing. To see the Hobson family is alon worth the price of admission." W. F. Carter had a barrel of hickory nuts out on the sidewalk one day las week and the crowd was soon thicker in front of his door than at a politica confab. The supply of nuts was re duced also more rapidly than the dem ocrats are reducing the pension rolls. An eloquent sermon was preached bj Rev. Goo. W. White Sunday morning at the Methodist church. ' He and Mrs White are visiting her parents, Mr and Mrs. Hutchins. Mr. White is presiding elder of the Los Angeles Cal., district and one of the protninen' preachers of that city. A meeting was held Saturday afternoon at M. B. Chapin's to extend a farewell to Miss Mina Morford, who goes as a missionary to Utah. Addresses were made and a large numbei were present. Miss Morford is a neice of W. F. Hofius and the first missionary to be sent from Kossuth county. Domestic infelicity occasioned the arrest of Hiram Wright last week. He was brought before 'Squire Clarke on a charge of assault made by Mrs. Wright, and put under $500 bonds to keep the peace. Mrs. Wright ( hn.s a petition for divorce filed and he will not contest it, thereby settling all their differences. Auditor Doxsee has been inquiring further as to the wolf scalp swindler who is in jail. He finds that he took i>55 at Estherville, and was there Sept. 3. He showed up at EmmetsburgSept. 13, and at Algona Sept. 15. In June he was in Buena Vista county, and has undoubtedly swindled every county in ;his part of the state. J. B. Jain left last week for his new lome at Forrest, 111. He has traded "or a grain elevator there. His sale was one of the largest ever held in the iounty, 21 horses going for $1,078, 54 lead of cattle bringing $909, and 95 hogs bringing $607. The total sale amounted to $3,470. Dave Haggard auctioned the whole lot off in one day. When Addison Fiehor and C. D. Pettibone left each other in Chicago on ,heir eastern trip neither one had any dea when he should return. But they arrived in Chicago within two hours of sach other, and so finished the fair and iheir trip together. It was a remarkable coincidence. Both had a royal visit in the east, and enjoyed themselves. Dolliver's first speech was made in Algona. Many years ago he drove up rom Humboldt with Will. Taft and delivered a temperance lecture. He laid in his speech Monday night that this was his first public address. His subsequent career would indicate that ie got an excellent inspiration from this first contact with the Athens of the northwest. Gen. Weaver was not able to stop in Algona Monday night as advertised, but went through south, leaving his singer, Mr. Maxon, to entertain the audience in Clarke's hall. This gen- jleman talked passably and sang well. At the close of his remarks Mr. Parons made an excellent short address. Owing to the Dolliver meeting the irowd was small. It is rumored that the Courier in,ends to corno out this week with a broadside on Mr. Sessions, after the •epublican papers are out. We doubt t for two reasons. The Courier knows hat no one pays attention to attacks made so late that they cannot be inves- igated. And then the republicans Hive treated Mr. Lund very fairly and jonsiderately. There is no occasion or any personal onslaught in this cam- >aign. This office has a respect and awe for ho Australian ballot, since printing 4,000 of them on the big press, that lad not existed heretofore, Instead of using plates the whole ticket was set n typo this year. The flaw in the jlates last year caused so much trouble ind expense in the Kossuth tickets hat wo decided to take no chances, t took over three days steady press vork last week to print them. Miss Edith Wheelock, who was inured by falling through a bad sido- valk in West Bend, is barely able to 30 out, and may not recover for a num- er of months from her injuries. She vas walking on a dark night and fell vhere a length of ^sidewalk had been aken out and no guard put up. W. B. ^unrton is in West Bend today in her nterests and will consult with the own authorities. In his letter this week ex-Auditor lutchins shows why every voter hould vote for a new jail. It is the nly way out of continual expense and rouble. Every older county has come o it after fooling around just as we lave. Judge Carr when last hero said hat every county in. his district with a lasement jail like ours was having the arne trouble we are, and that sooner r later every one would have to build , jail building. The Social Union club had an ex- eptionally good meeting Friday even- ng. E. P. McElroy gave very enter- aining reminiscences of his life in Boston, and E. B, Butler in an inter- sting paper discussed the silver ques- ion-, leaving it where Stockton did the ady and the tiger. Miss Cornie Ingham gave a recitation, Miss Alice Spear an instrumental solo, and Misses Ran,all and Tweed a vocal duet. A large audience attended as usual. The first operation at the city well 'epairs was the dropping of an oak imber weighing 30 pounds on A, F. )ailey's head yesterday morning. He was about 12 feet down and the stick lit him a slanting blow, cutting the calp open in ugly fashion hut fortunately not fracturing the skulL Dr. Garfield was called and sewed up the wound and Mr. Dailey is again about, >ut it was a narrow escape. The democrats are waking up at the .lose of the campaign and the follow- ng speeches are advertised by Chairman Sullivan: State Senator C. P. "ohnson of Chicago will speak at Ban- iroft tomorrow afternoon and at Burt omorrow evening. Capt. Yeomana of <\jrt Dodge will speak at Wesley Saturday afternoon and at L/u Verne Satur- lay evening. M. F. Healy of Fort Dodge will speak at the court house in Algona next Monday evening. Last fall, the night of the Dolliver meeting at LuVerne, D. Bamm was climbing up the ladder on a freight oar on the Minneapolis train when a brakemaa kftocked his hat off» kicked hi knuckles, and forced him to drop of while the train was in motion. Bamm sued for $1,000, but recently the Unit ed States court dismissed his petition on motion of the company. The !m pression seemed to be that he was try ing to steal a ride. Mr. Bamm claimed that the caboose was full am that he was willing to ride on the freight car. The Carroll Herald says "the court sat down on him like a bat* tering ram." Announcement was made last week of the assignment of Geo. Simpkins Sr Son at Bancroft. Col. Spencer is assignee and tho liabilities are about $11,000. The main creditor was in Algona last week, and upon looking mat* tors over was satisfied that the assets were equal to the liabilities, and no sacrifice will be made. The cause of the trouble is large purchases of fall goods with light trade owing to tho existing depression. All of the many friends of Mr. Simpkins and Henry will regret the temporary embarass- ment and will hope to soo them soon righted again. An invoice of stock is now being taken. The Burt Monitor says: Twenty-five of our young people drove to Algona last evening to witness the production of the successful comedy, "The Masked Ball," by one of Chas. Frohman's excellent companies. The aggregation voted the play first-class and by far better than anticipated, and state they were well repaid for attending. This was another of the many excellent attractions secured by the Algona Opera House company which Burtitos have liad the pleasure of attending. Their next attraction is Shilling's minstrols, which are billed for Monday night, Nov. 6. As many as can conveniently arrange will be present that evening. A largo audience of Rev. Mitchell's old friends gathered at the court house Saturday evening to hear his stump speech. They listened attentively, but without expressing approbation. Ho talked about two hours and stated very rankly that his party had in view electing a legislature pledged to the oresent law and defeating Jackson. As everyone could see what an absurd outcome this would be, having a legislature favoring a law und a governor who vill not enforce it, no one was very avorably impressed. Mr. Mitchell n-eached at tho Methodist church Sun- iay evening, but did not touch on )olitics or temperance. Ho is as vigorous as ever and tho samo old fighter he vas in early days. Mayor Call had County Surveyor Tollior down Monday determining the grade of an under crossing on the road o the mill where it passes the Milwaukee tracks. Ho finds that such a cross- ng can bo made without increasing ;he grade of tho hill, and it is likely that it will be done. The railway com>any will put in its own timbers and >ay part for removing dirt, the county ind town joining in tho remaining ex- >ense. It is estimated that the total cost will not exceed $300. This is the only dangerous railway crossing near Algona, and with the wagon road un- ler the railway tracks a great im- >rovement will have been made. The >ublic safety demands this change if it :an bo conveniently made. Notice. Any parties paying notes given at the B. Jain sale before Dec. 1 will get ive per cent, discount, as for cash. Those paying before Fob. 18, 1894, will 30 charcred tho face of tho note without ntorest.

Hughes and a party of eight came ip from Eagle Grove Thursday evening for 'The Maskep Ball" on a special, and were entertained by the opera house company.
