It se/^ n £ 8 P rea d in Algona are contijr^his I will try to explain and toj/** ro flxe d here. I got two y asking about boys in One wanted to know hospital Will Salisbury was con- in. Will has not been sick a day nee leaving home. I can not see how ich reports get started. Those who are sick at all are as follows: Capt. Thos. F. Cooke, Ellison Blackford, Edgar Winkle, Marshall Barge, Sergt. Chas. A. Cohenour, Arthur Craft, Fred Cronin, Chas. Benjamin, George Mahoney, Chas. Fleming, and Lewis Whitehead. Capt. Cooke is at his home in Algona, Ellison Blackford has almost entirely recovered but is still very weak and will be taken by his mother to Cleveland, Ohio, Monday. Marshall Barge of Bancroft is in the division hospital but is not seriously ill. He has attendants from the company with him all the time, and they report him much better today. He would not have been taken to the division hospital but for the fact that our regimental surgeon had too many cases on his hands, Sergt. Cohenour was sick a week or so ago and tried to return to duty too soon, and is now in the company hospital. He improving rapidly and there is absolutely nothing serious in his case. Fred Cronin has been having some trouble with his kidneys but is getting well. The others are all recovering from stomach trouble and aside from their being rather weak, they are almost all right again. This is a true statement of affairs here. The boys in the company hospital have the constant attendance of Corporal Frank Underwood and Mr. Jarshaw, and two better men could not be found. This statement is written for the purpose of disaffirming the many false reports we hear of, and the people who have sons or brothers in Company F can rest assured they will be promptly notified of any sickness. As a rule every one of the boys are exceptionally well and are enjoying themselves. The food is good, the work easy, and while the boiled water is not very palatable, yet it will cause no sickness. -*--»- 4- It was with much regret that the boys saw our captain go away, and yet they all realized that it was the best thing for htm to do. We all hope that he and the others will soon be able to rejoin us. rno " taps." Both platforms de- be the winner, and we hope both will be. The candidates for are both good men. "Sleepy" iller is losing no repose over the out come of the election, while the Whigs think that "Kodak" Jensen will " take" everything in sight. -*- -t- H"Dis-Orderly" Boyle wants It distinctly understood that he was not a candidate for nomination for mayor at the Whigs' convention even if his friends did put up a hot fight for him.

PRIVATE SAFETY DEPOSIT YAVLT8- |3r'Jnterest paid on time deposits, Salisbury, Tellier & Minkler is a firm of business men in our street. They have erected a little tent with a counter across the entrance over which they deal out crackers, cheese, cookies, eggs, cigars, tobacco, jelly, and canned goods. They have recently added a small gasoline stove to their outfit and now serve hot griddle cakes every morning. One can also buy a cup of hot cocoa here as a variation from the everlasting coffee. -<--»--$We have done but little drilling of late as it usually rains about drill time.

H- -s- •*While the politics are warming up in Kossuth, the voters of Company F are having a tilt among themselves. All who live on the south side of the company street are called Tories, and those on the north are Whigs. Conventions were held the other night, and some stirring speeches were made by "Sleepy" Miller, "Farmer" Gilbride and "Detective" Heinbaugh for the Tories, while " Elder Bill" Day, "Kodak" Jensen and "Long" Chapinawoke the echoes of this old battleground with their loud voiced assurances that the platform of the Whigs was the only one. Folllowing are the officers nominated by the Tories: For mayor, "Sleepy" Miller; for treasurer, "Smiling" Cuppett; for recorder, " Howling" Taylor; for aldermen, "Bow-wow" Dollman, "Farmer" Gilbride, "Kid" Tellier and "Detective" Heinbaugh. In the Whig convention the following men were chosen: For mayor, "Kodak" Jensen; for treasurer, " Pard"Markert; for recorder, "Peach" Ganfield; for aldermen, "Hustling" Daugherty, "Ma" Turner, "Cyclone" Brewster and "Senator" Cohenour. The election will be held Saturday evening in the mess tent. The platform of the Tories promises paved streets, no "police" force, and more pay' and less work for the "poor, down trodden privates.'" The Whigs offer free canteens, mess call at all hours, " Reveille" at 11:45 a. druggist. Interesting Sights at the Log Booms —Description of How tho Rafts Are Made. July 14th at 9:30 a. m., my daughter and I stepped on board the little pleasure steamer bound for tho two historic spots, Fort Snolling and Minnehaha Falls. Two loud blasts from the whistle, a ring of the bell, and the paddle wheels began to turn, and wo were off. The first thing we saw of Interest was the great steel railroad drawbridge turn around to let us pass. One could not but think of tho nice adjustment of this huge structure as it moved noiselessly on the central pivot with its tons of weight of rods and braces and levers. This passed and wo moved on tho swift current of the great father of waters, upon whose bosom floated chips, logs, hay, sawdust, grain and other debris. We passed under two more huge bridges, when another drawbridge was turned for us. Then we came to the log booms where thousands of logs are tied and pinned together into rafts to be floated down the river, guided by steamboats or tugs. The manner of makfng these rafts is interesting. Large sawed timbers from two to four feet wide are fastened together so as to form three sides to a square. The open side is fastened to.piles that are driven into the bed of tho river by a floating pile driver. Into this open square the logs are steered by expert loggers until enough are In It to fill it. They are then arranged, and holes are bored in them and large wooden pins are driven in to which chains, ropes or wires are attached until the whole mass is connected; then the raft is completed. It is then floated out of the frame and moored to piling, and another raft is made in the frame. Loggers run over the floating logs apparantly as easily as we walk on dry ground. Around every log boom one may see dozens of men, women and children filling row boats with floating chips to use for fuel. We pass on, the bluffs on either sida affording magnificent scenery. A railroad winds its way mid way between the river and the tops of the rocks. Small islands clad in luxuriant verdure are passed until we feel that here is the beauty spot of earth. Fort Snelllng high above us, its old stone walls now crumbling, looks as defiant as Morro castle. Here we see the old block house and guard house and plaza where the drill and dre.,9 parade were wont to take placejS Now only a single sentry paces to and fro. Cannon set into the ground answer as gate posts—and thus „>.?.>e wheels of time move on. ^ We re-embark and are again on our way to tho famous falls, which we reach at 10:30. A flop,ting dock receives us, and just abovefihe landing we can see the buildings of the soldiers' home. This indeed is an ideal place for the veteran to spend his last days, amid such beautiful scenery, and within sound of the falls that Longfellow has made famous. Alas, the song will outlive the theme, for Minnohaha no longer plunges over the rocky cliff with a deafening roar. Only a thin stream of water now falls, with scarcely any noise; and yet as one stands and contemplates the surroundings and brings to mind the legend of Hiawatha, he feels a pride in having seen nature's handiwork that inspired the poet. How many hundreds of years the water has been tumblingover this precipice no one knows, and generations yet unborn may look upon the same scene that I have attempted to describe and read the never ending laws of nature. "Change, change—constant, immutable." At 2:30 we are again on board the steamer, the paddle wheels churn the water, the whistle blows, and we are on our way back to the city, HAEVEY E. SLAGLE. St. Paul, July 17, 1898. The Dubuque Races, Dubuque is to have a big racing meet Aug. 22-27. The purses range from $1,000 to $2,500, and the entries are so numerous that it is a question how all the horses can start. There are 26 horses in for the 2:07 pacing race, and 14 in for the 2:12 trot. There are 17 races scheduled and from 10 to 31 horses are entered in each race. It will be the biggest racing meeting ever held in Iowa.
