The season, all around, was never better for crops. The best corn is much ahead of the season. The school board reports nothing new as to its sale of bonds. It has taken no steps toward purchasing a site. St. John, the blacksmith, is building a fine new shop on the Galbraith corner east of Hamilton's lumber yard. Maj. Boynton, a former landlord of the Thorington hotel, then called LeGrande, is now running a hotel in Omaha. The Algona ladies have prepared a lot of supplies for the soldier boys which they will send by some of the recruits. There will be a social at the home of Mrs. S. D. Hamilton for the benefit of the W. C. T. U., one week from tomorrow, July 7. Archie Hutchison's contracts are let for his new house. A. M. Coan will do the carpenter work.

The Algona Klondike company bad an unpleasant experience lately. They got* telegram from the miner they are grub staking announcing that he wMoutof funds. The telegram coat them $4.90, Tbey»enton eome more money and are still keeping their faith in the gold country. After July 1 the rates on postofflce money orders are raised two cents.

Swetting will deliver an able and patriotic address. The First National bank has got a lot of the new revenue stamps for the use of the public after Friday. All who have occasion to use these new stamps can get them there. The county board has provided anew flag for the court house. It is 30 feet long and a beauty. The old sanitary flag will be kept in its box and preserved for future generations, There will be a lawn party given by the ladies of the Episcopal Guild at Geo. E. Clarke's this evening. The harp orchestra will be present, and a delightful time is assured. The themes for discourse at the Methodist church next Sunday by the pastor will be, morning: "The Church and Independence Day." Evening: "Intoxicated and Sober Piety." Brownell is going to celebrate the Fourth by having everybody well shod. He is making a great clearing sale, which will begin tomorrow. Now is the time to get summer foot wear. Brownell's window has the latest conundrum which reads: Dewey 1, Samson 02, Schley 022. This means when properly interpreted, Dewey won, Samson ought to, Schley ought to, too. The Odd Fellows and Rebekas had a big crowd at the rink Friday evening, and gave a pleasant entertainment. Not least appreciated was the third act which included delicious cream and cake. A blacksmith in town named McCann insulted an Algona lady in the 'bus coming from the Northwestern depot at night from the late train. 'Squire Clarke assigned him to 15 days hard labor. Manager Wadsworth has arrangements about made for Clay Clement to appear in Algona in a new play Oct. 26. That will be an agreeable announcement. The opera house won't hold the people. It is definitely arranged that Chaplain McCabe will lay the corner stone of the new Methodist church July 20. That will be a notable event. The chaplain is one of the great orators of this country. A. T. Caster, who has been living near the Milwaukee depot, was taken to Independence by Deputy McDonald last week. He had been having a run of measles and It left him in an unbalanced condition.

Lord's supper at close of morning service. A Sunday school was organized at Hobart Sunday by F. C. Farr with 30 members. Mrs. J. O. Rawson is superintendent, and Miss Susie Rist secretary. It meets each Sunday at 3 o'clock at the school house. A big crowd went from hereabouts to the Clear Lake fire works Saturday night. Fully 20,000 were on the grounds. The "Storming of Manila" had been over-advertised and nearly everybody was disappointed. R. T. Angus and Miss Lizzie Ricker are licensed to wed. The groom is a son of G. S. Angus of Burt and the bride is daughter of an equally well known family. The marriage will occur tomorrow at the Ricker home. J. A. Vipond and wife were going home from town Friday night when the big wind came up. Their horse absolutely could not or would not face it and they had to unhitch and walk home across the dump west of town. An ice cream social will be given at the Vincent home, west of town, Thursday evening, June 30. All who wish to go will find conveyances on State street at 6:30. The Algona band will furnish the music and everybody is invited to come. The ladies of Algona will give a war concert at the opera house on Friday evening, July 8. The net proceeds will be sent direct to Company F. A small admission fee will be charged, and all should turn out and give the soldier boys a benefit. E. C. Raymond, David Miller and three others went to Mason City Friday night, and were to leave for the south today. A half carload went from Emmetsburg. The recruiting of new soldiers seems thus far to have been done wholly at Mason City. The Nashville darkey entertainment last Friday evening was one of the best ever given in Algona. The band was exceptionally good and drew big crowds at its street performances. A fair audience was out and enjoyed the music and specialties. It is a clever company. THE UPPER DES MOINES knows that next to a mirror there is nothing quite so gratifying as a well done portrait of oneself. It has accordingly arranged to accommodate its readers with some good crayon work, full announcement of which appears elsewhere. It will pay to read this advertisement. The Ladies' Aid society of Irvington will have a picnic in Mann's grove on the Fourth. E. C. Brown an attorney from Muscatine will be the orator. In the afternoon there will be a cakewalk and various foot races in which all present are invited to participate. Ice cream and cake will be for sale at any time during the day.

Ingham, vice president; Mrs. E. C. Dodge, recording secretary; Mrs. Gardner Cowles, treasurer; Mrs. Wm. K. Ferguson, corresponding secretary. Mr. and Mrs. Chrisohllles of Fenton were down last week to take steps to have their son sent away for treatment. It was found by Sheriff Christenaen that he was a resident of Hancock county, and be was accordingly brought up at Garner and sent to Independence. He is In vigorous health and It is to be hoped that he will speedily recover. A pleasant marriage was celebrated at Burt yesterday after noon at 0" o'clock, 8. N. Harris of the Burt bank and Mies Gertrude Paine being the happy par* tiqlpaats. The Chubbs, Taylors, fcf«r- tagbs, McDonalds, and others attended from Algona. Mr. Harris is one of the county's best young business men, and Miss Paine is a charming and accomplished bride. John G. Smith, as executor of the Alex. Patterson estate, has just received word that the supreme court of Wisconsin has sustained the children's claim to Mr. Patterson's life insurance. The companies refused to pay on account of suicide, claiming that he was in 511 health when the policies were written. This outcome brings the children $3,000. Willamette university of Salem, Oregon, has conferred the degree of D. D. on Rev. Frank E. Day. This gives Algona two D. D. 's, as Elder Yetter was also recognized this year, and it is a fitting recognition in this, year of Methodist boom. The Willamette college is the largest denominational school on the Pacific coast, and its degree is a great honor to our popular pastor. The big wind Friday evening gave the crowd at the opera house a good scare. It came so suddenly that the cry of cyclone went up, and there was a scramble for the door. Two ladies fainted and but for prompt action a stampede might have occurred. The same wind blew down the Forepaugh ircus tent at Sioux City, doing $10,000 of damage and badly injuring a number of people. The Methodist church contractor has begun on the foundation of the new church. The firm furnishing the brown stone for the outside work will ship it in the rough and cut it here. This will bring a lot of stone cutters to Algona in addition to the rest of the workmen. The advantage in this is that no stone are broken in shipment after being cut, and each stone is cut as it is needed. There will be a union meeting of the B. Y. P. U., E. L. and Y. P. S. C. E. of the various churches of the city, at the Baptist church next Sunday evening at 6:30 o'clock. There will be a short devotional session, followed by the answering of eight question on " Christian Citizenship and a Nation's Glory;" two answers from each society. The program will be interspersed with congregational and special singing. Geo. E. Clarke says he has no doubt of Judge Thomas' eligibility to congress. He points out that Judge Cook was seated in "congress, although he held his judgship all through the congressional term. Mr. Clarke also looks to see a successor to Judge Thomas named at Spirit Lake, as the call for the convention included the doing of "such other business as might come before it." This will not affect Judge Quarton's chances in the least. The Shawnoe Daily Chief of Oklahoma notes the sale of the Union avenue hotel to A. B. Dunlap,our "Andy" of Ledyard. He pays $10,000. The Chief says: "Mrs, Rudd received in part payment the elegant Dunlap home east of the city, containing five acres, and is the most expensive property in the county, being modern in all its appointments and style of architecture. The transaction Involves a larger sum than any other that has taken place in the city. The deeds of transfer were put on record yesterday." M, E. Schleicher Is back from Klondike. He came in last week and yes terday went on to Garner, where he will again open his office. He is looking splendidly and has bad a pleasant outing. He says the Klondike country lea fake as a bonanza region. A few streaks of gold, 18 inches wide and to 15 miles long are paying, Outside of them no man has made expenses. No one is now going to that region, a,nd all who have money enough are getting a way. The Epwortb League of the dist church has arranged to give its second declamatory contest at the court house, Friday evening, July 1. The following participate. Grade A, Harold Hutchins, Gertie Parish, Kate Blackford, Jessie Smith. Grade B, Carl Dodge, Jessie Parish, Ernestina Day, Ada Jones, Ollio Bowman.

Don't fail to attend. The electric light deal is nearing completion. The company met Saturday and elected officers: Ambrose A. Call, president; Harvey Ingham, vice president; Gardner Cowles, secretary, ind Theo. Chrischilles, treasurer. Monday City Solicitor Bonar had the city ordinance ready, and the company had a draft of its contract, which it will probably complete Saturday with Mr. Bigelow for putting in the plant. Mr. Bigolow's figure for everything complete is $11,700, and that was considered the best bid that had been re- leived. The city Is now figuring on •ts new building, which will be 38 by 35 feet, with a 14-foot story. The bids 'or this were made by J. M. Cowan, Mr. Gordineer, the contractor wlio is putting in the Whittemore blocks, and Mr. Gross, who is buildiner the Method- 'st church. Sewlne by the Day, Miss Irene Ward. Residence with Mrs. A. E.
