Here is an item of news about a lady who had money entangled in the Lund transactions: By the terms of the will of Mrs. Annie S. Paton, Princeton University Is to receive a legacy of $100,000. This bequest, when it becomes available, will be used to endow the " William and Annie S. Paton Lectureship in Ancient and Modern Literature."

But little is known of the details of her death. She was a sufferer from cancer and presumably this caused her death. She died at Cherokee Saturday. Mrs. Carter had many friends in-Algona, whose sympathy will go out to the afflicted family. Merritt Turner says he thinks the recruting will end today and that all hands will go to Chickamauga Friday. He has recruited from Kossuth the following: Burt, John H. Philps, Wm. Goodlad, A. M.

Raymond & Reed were the Germania attorneys. The law says the polls shall be open from noon till 7 o'clock. The polls were in fact open from 9 o'clock to 4 o'clock. The judge holds that from noon till 4 o'clock the voting was legal, and no proof was made that all the votes were not cast during those_hours, and no proof was made of prejudice. Two nines, made up of bill posters on Ringling Bros.' advertising car No. 1, had an exciting game of base ball on the fair grounds Monday afternoon. The car arrived in Algona at 3:20 p. m. and within half an hour the riyal teams were on the diamond. One team was championed by Chris. Von Treager and the other by Capt. "Pony" Titus. The Titus nine won by a score of 24 to 13, owing largely to the fact that the opposition battery played out early in the game. In one inning, when Von Treager pitched, the Titus nine > was given tlu'ee goose eggs in succession—a tribute to the pitcher's ability. Unfortunately Von Treager was not used to pitching, and had to give way to another pitcher later in the game. This lost the fight. The Glorious Ponrth Was Patriotically Celebrated at Various Points In the Connty. All in alt Kossuth never celebrated the Fourth more gloriously. The day was ideal, the gatherings were numerous, and the morning news put everybody into a state of jubilant and patriotic enthusiasm. It was a great day for the free born American citizen. AT LUVERNE. At LuVerne a big crowd assembled. It would have been a big crowd for a county seat celebration. All the country round and neighboring towns poured out. And Lu Verne proved a genial entertainer forthecrowds. The old fashioned Fourth of July sports predominated and under the efficient management of Wes. Hanna and W. L. Niver they were made very attractive and amusing. Features of the program were the fine music rendered by Mr. and Mrs. Scott and the recitation of the declaration of independence by little Miss Dobson, which was exceptionally well done. Geo. W. Hanna was master of ceremonies and threw the town open to the visitors. The evening fire works were better thnn were advertised, and were a fit closing to so pleasant a celebration. AT BANCROFT. The crowds at the northern capital were very large. The races were fast, and with big entries. Eight fleet runners went in one motets. The Saturday races were postponed on account of rain till yesterday and were good. Samuel Mayno presided at the patriotic exercises, which were hold in the fair grounds, and Hon. W. W. Cornwall gave an eloquent and thoughtful oration, of which everybody speaks in high praise. The Burt band was at its best and the fire works were elaborate. It was a great day at Bancroft. AT GERMANIA. Judge Quarton spoke on the duties of American citizenship at Germania and gave a fine address. The attendance at the celebration was good, as it was everywhere, and the entertainment liberal. B. P. Smith was the presiding officer, and the races wore under his management. AT WESLEY. Here again was a big crowd. All Britt came over and Wesley was full to over flowing. A big gun shoot was to be a feature between Algona and Britt, but Mortensen and another Britt shooter were in a runaway and were injured. Mortensen had some teeth knocked out. Father Nagle gave a fine oration and everything passed off pleasantly. The sports were lively and the crowd voted Wesley the town to celebrate in. court and the case was tried upon testimony of the bystanders who witnessed the fracas and Mr. Chrischilles was found not guilty and the costs were taxed to the complainant. From that part of the judgment, taxing the costs to him, Mr. Boyle appealed. Watite 80,000 circulation.
