F. H. VESPER, Agent. THE LOCAL FIELD, Sunday was a bot day. Jelle Tjaden and Anna M. Hopkes are licensed to wed. The Algona Deposit & Loan was putting in a new 5,000 pound safe Monday. Lawn social at Doxsee's Friday evening. Entertainment and ice cream 10 cents. , B. P. Grose has moved to his new home, the Lacy house, and is again a First warder. Congressman Dolliver took Col. Bain's place at the Spirit Lake Chautauqua last week. W. K. Ferguson is making some improvements in his store building for Langdon & Hudson. Jas. Blunt, our old-time Fenton farmer, has sold 80 McCortnick harvesters at Ruthven this season. A. H. Naudafn has sold his coal business to the Algona Milling company and will work for it this season. Jos. Mishach was in Armstrong last week invoicing a stock of clothing for E. O. Fitz. He is an expert for such a job. A sizeable addition is being made to the Cronin furniture store. Mr. Cronin had to have more room for his big stock. Sunday evening Rev. Stiles will preach to a union meeting at the Congregational church on " Reasons for Believing." The description of the Omaha exposition by Miss Jessamine L. Jones will be found very interesting and entertaining by our readers. Ice cream and cake will be served on Lewis H. Smith's lawn tomorrow evening under auspices of Congregational Christian Endeavor. Music by the band. There tu-e still 5,000 children of school age in Kossuth county notinany Sunday school. This is on the authority of Mr. Farr, who is engaged in the work. S. A. Thompson is raising the roof of his house, the old Stough place, and making a big improvement. He is going to have a commodious and handsome home. Not so many years ago Ringling's circus came by team to Algona and got stuck between Britt and Wesley. They bought a horse south of Wesley and have it yet. The general roport is that wheat and oats are heavier than many expected. There are some exceptions. Corn never promised so well at this season. A little rain is needed. The war or the Omaha show has interfered with the usual lake attractions. Agent Hedrick says he has not sold over 20 tickets to Spirit Lake this season from Algona. The circus had to go from Forest City down to Goldfield and then up on the Northwestern to get to Algona,, because we have no Y. The Y ought to become a live issue again. You can hear good musicand get good ice cream on L. H. Smith's lawn tomorrow night. The band will furnish the music and the Congregational Y. P. S. C. E. furnishes the ice cream. It is likely that the state field trial of setter and pointer field dogs will come to Bancroft, Aug. 31. It lies between Emmetsburg and Bancroft and Jo_hn G. Smith is confident Bancroft will be chosen. Chas. Kraft found the Algona store second among the seven Kraft stores in the business of the past year. The Algona store is well managed and has something this week it will pay our readers to take note of. The Sunday school missionary reports another school organized in district No. 5, Creaco township, with E. L. Smith superintendent and Miss May Jones secretary and treasurer. They meet every Sunday at 2:30 p. m. A very handsome roster of Company F is framed in red, white and blue and hangs in the postoffice. Lieut. Randall sent the document and the postoffice •furnished the frame. It ought to hang for the next 50 years as a public record. Mrs. F.iler of Whittemore attempted to kill herself Monday. The doctors got the morphine out before she was dead. Her brother pummeled Mr. Eiler, while she was lowest, his escapades having been the cause of the trouble. Mr. P. L. Ayers, a photographer of Ames, Iowa, and Miss Effle A. Young of the same place, were joined in marriage at the Baptist parsonage, Monday, July 25. Mr. Ayers is a brother of Mrs. A. D. Bradley and has many friends in Algona. THE UPPER DES MOINES' picture canvassers are in the county »nd will give everybody a call. . We have every reason to believe that all who deal with them will get the first quality of work at a price that makes it an object to buy. Peter J. Walker is entitled to a head place on the roll of givers to the new church. He picked up one of the gift cards on the street and attaching his name to it put $10 in the proper place and sent it to the committee. He says the new church is as it should be. P. L. McComb is now figuring on building with the Weaenberg brothers, He hae made them an offer for one lot. If he builds he will put in a steam laundry equal to the needs of all the adjacent territory and expand bis business, which is now more than his faoil ities are equal to. theme for discourse by Dr. Day 4 irj* k 'iU at the Methodist church next Sunday morning will be: "Details in Religion ". In the evening the congregation will join in the union Service at the Congregational church when the sermon will be given by Rev. D. H. Stiles of the Baptist church. C. A. Erickson of Swea, an old and well known settler, will be a candidate for north end supervisor. THE UPPER DES MoiNES has long believed • that that part of the county should be represented, and if the northwest Agrees to present Mr. Erickson it will receive a strong support in the convention. J. W. Robinson spent some days at Spirit Lake last week. He says the Chautauqua will make some money this season, and that the program was good. Fishing is poor and the lakes very low. The Hotel Orleans has not been opened and the cottages about Spirit Lake are vacant. The life is down at Okoboji. Thos. A. Way and Bro. Bailey of Britt were over for the races. They say the county seat fight will end in the courts. What is now the exciting question is how the supervisors are going to get their pay. The law allows them.only 32 days a year, and they have sat more than that on this contest alone. Dr. Sheetz carried $12,000 life insurance. J. B. Jones remained in Algona lone enough to arrange for the carrying out of his will, which leaves Mrs. Sheetz in full possession of his estate. The store will be conducted by Harry Moore for his aunt, until some final decision is reached concerning what to do with it. THE UPPER DES MOINES heartily endorses what the Courier says about the location of the new school house. "It will be one of the buildings that wo shall all be proud of, and it therefore should not be put in the back-ground but in the fore-front. Let the new building be on or near East State street. " Mrs. D. D. Townsend while riding her bicycle on the fourth of July in Chicago was thrown on a crossing, iind her hip was broken in such a way that she may be a pormanent invalid. Hoi- sister, Miss Ella Langdon, will go to the city soon to assist in caring for her. Many friends in Algona will regret to learn of her misfortune. The races last week failed to pay out, but were good. The half mile was made in 50i and the mile in 1.45}, breaking both track records, and in all the races the finishes were hotly contested. The usual gang of gamblers and toughs accompanied the horses. Perhaps this is the reason races outside of the county fair program have so little popularity hereabouts. Ringlings have come and gone. They had a splendid day, and the crowd was very large. It was an immense crowd for harvest week. The circus was good as it always is. The menagerie drew all the children, and their parents came with them to point out the animals. The Ringlings will never fail of a big welcome to Algona. Attorney General Remley is of the opinion that all schemes for selling pools, running jewelry spindles, knife and baby racks and other devices of making money by chance are species of gambling, and will be so considered under the new law. A county fair which permits "gambling" cannot draw its $200 from the state. Invitations are out for the marriage of Alf. Chapin and Miss Tena Wallace, which is to occur next Wednesday. The groom is son of an old settler and has grown up in and about Algona. The bride likewise was born in Algona. Both are known to a host of friends who will unite in well wishes, and congratulate them on their happy union. THE UPPER DES MOINES publishes the expressions of the county papers, good, bad and indifferent, on local politics in order that its readers may see what is said. It specially commends the attitude of the Wesley Reporter. This is the year for a fairly distributed and fairly named county ticket, and every delegation should come to convention with that end in view. W. M. Parsons, who is visiting with Mrs. Parsons at the J. L. Paine home, spoke Sunday evening to a union meet- on the work the Young Men's Christian association is doing for the young soldiers. He says 22 Y. M. C. A. tents, with books, writing material, and dally meetings, are maintained at Chickamauga alone. He asks Algona to give $50 to aid this work. His address was very able and interesting. W. K. Boardinan, one of the Algona firm of Boardman Bros,, who has been losing weight and is now at Colfax, has' ascertained that the cause of his trouble is a broken rib, the result of his having fallen on the wheel a few weeks ago while getting into a buggy. The Nevada Representative says the extent of the hurt was not appreciated at the time, but massage treatment at Colfax made it most painfully evident. Attorney F. M. Curtiss shies bis castor into the ring in this issue and announced his candidacy for the county attorneyship. Mr. Curtiss is a young lawyer who has come rapidly to the front in Algona and who has the ability and energy to make a splendid prose- outing attorney for the county. He is a republican from a republican family and a young man of ability. His nomination would mean good public service in the coming two years. J. B. Carr formally announces bis candidacy for nomination as clerk of courts in this issue. THE UPPER DES MOINES noted Mr. Carr's candidacy last week and published the Bancroft Register's announcement of it. Mr. Carr is an old time resident in Seneca and is well and favorably known all over the northern part of the county. He will be a strong candidate in the convention and no mistake will be made if he is nominated: Over a dozen inquires have come in already for entries in the county fair races, owing to the new circuit. The program is out, and Secretary Peek is sending out entry blanks already. Following are the big races in which outside horses will compete: Trotting or pacing, 2:40 class, $100, free-for-all $150; running, free-for-all half mile $150; novelty, one mile $100, free-for-all mile heats $150. The regular county races are on as usual, and other attractions are being planned for by the six associations in the circuit.

He was accompanied by A. J. Present, her husband, ind her two sons, Ed. and Walt Heller. Mrs. Present was nearly 67 years old and had for seven years been a bed-ridden sufferer from internal cancer. Mr. tephens' father and mother He In the, Algona cemetery. They lived on the farm north of A. L. Belton's in Irvington and are pleasantly remembered by early settlers. The funeral of Dr. Sheotz was one of the most largely attended ever held in Algona, the Grand Army, Relief Corps, Knights 'of Pythias, Woodmen, and Workmen were out in the insignia of their orders, and citizens by hundreds swelled the throng of mourners. The services were very simple. Rev. S. P, Marsh, who happened to be in town, made a touching prayer, and Rev. Day, who had met Dr. Shoot/, the first day ne came to Algona and gotten into a quickly formed intimate acquaintance, spoke briefly and most appropriately of him as a man and as a citizen. The services at the grave were conducted by the Grand Army, and old comrades bore the coflln to its final resting place. The Spencer News speaks very highly of Rev. Suckow, who comes to Algona in two weeks: A good many News readers remember Rev. W. J. Suckow, who 12 or 15 years ago was the M. E. minister in charge "of Spencer circuit. Mr. Suckow was young and rather crude in those days; but he had energy and determination and whatsoever he Found to do, he did it with his might, Shortly after leaving Spencer heunited with the Congregationulists, and since has been preaching for the people of that denomination. His growth socially, intellectually and spiritually has been constant, and be now ranks with the leading men of his church in this part of the state as an able, popular and successful minister of the gospel. For years he has dispensed the word of life at Hawarden, where he is popular and beloved both in and out of the church. Recently he received a call from the church at Algona, has accepted the same, and will enter upon his work there Aug. 1st. His Spencer friends note bis advancement with interest. JUNIOR social at C.

The Northern Iowa Hospital association with Drs. Anderson, Adams, Birney and Wilson as incorporators have submitted a proposition to the city council of Esthervillo to erect and maintain a hospital of at least the cost of SG,000,providing the city will donate he site composed of two lots. The city Dromised so to do but upon investiga- ,ion of the law found it impossible to grant a site. Instead, the council has ssued a petition for private subscriptions to the amount of $776, the sum required to purchase two line lots in the east part of the city. The Ring! ing circus does not stop at Webster City, and the Freeman tolls a curious story in this connection: It will be remembered in Webster City that one of their men, ti Mr. Richardson, was shot and killed here by Thos. Basket, who has since served his time n the penitentiary and is now running i hotel in Mason City. Mr. Richardson was buried in the Webster City :emetery and when Ringling's show ippenred here several years after his iloath, the employes inarched to the emotery in a body and decorated his jravo with flowers. At that time the Singling Bros, said their show would probably never visit Webster City igain as their men were very superstitious and it would be difficult to persuade them to again come to our city. And the fact that they will appear at Eagle Grove, and have left Webster City out of their itinerary, seems to be :jroof that the men have not yet been persuaded thvyt this place is not pervaded with witches and goblins. Bailey draws consolation from the r act that he can't chock money out of the pockets of his delinquent subscribers and can consequently save the stamps. -*- -f- •*D. C. Pilkins, the Eagle Grove lawyer, has boon at Klondike and is back. He says that up there all men are liars. At Dyea they aver that you can never get through by the Skaguay trial and at Skaguay they are almost stricken dumb with astonishment that you are not robbed, killed and your carcass thrown to the vultures after coming over the Dyea trail. Mr. Filkins went one way and returned the other, and is still alive and not robbed. He is satisfied that, as a sight-seeing trip, his journey was well worth It, but for gold or speculation he is convinced there is nothing in it. -i- .+. -j- The Vlnton Eagle says the Algona city council has entire control of the one mill county road tax levied in town and quotes the law: But so much ol the county road fund as arises from property within any city or incorporated town shall bo expended on the roads or streets within such city or town, or on the roads adjacent thereto, undei the direction of the city or town council. -f- -i- -*The Spencer Reporter says of Ed Anderson of Ruthven: "Politically against Dolliver he would make a ridic' ulous spectacle if anyone stopped to learn that he was actually in the race.' Kossuth's candidate will take his chances on appearances. SEE our premium portrait offer. Go TO the Omaha exposition via the Northwestern line.

BIUTT, Iowa, June 8,1808.—Five years ago I put lu my house what I thought to lie the best furnace in the market. It has taken from eight to ten tons of hard coal to keep my house warm through the winter seasons. Last year Treganza Bros, replaced it with a No. 88 Paragon furnace, which has proved much more satisfactory in every way, and consuming less than five tons of hard coal during the winter.
