That is one of Algona's landmarks. Work has begun on the foundation of Dr. Glasier's new home. He builds near the Northwestern track, east of J. E. Stacy's. All who have friends atChickamauga will be glad to read Lieut. Randall's official statement as to health conditions in this issue. The mothers' meeting will be held at the home of Mrs. Alice L. Randall next Wednesday. Please bring your dimes for that book. Frank Maro was taken to the asylum Saturday by Deputy McDonald. He had a sunstroke a year ago, which is at the bottom of his trouble.

Hannft. former United States consul at San Juan de Porto Rtco, will also be a passenger by the dispatch boat. Capt. J. T. Standring, who lived in Algona several years, and who is now a Corwith citizen, has just received a check from Uncle Sam for a balance due him from 1865 for service as quartermaster and ordinance officer. The paymaster made a mistake and the government has just rectified it. It is a curious coincidence that Edgar WinkePs uncle, John Riebhoff, should have been the first Kossuth soldier to die in the civil war. He died at St. Louis of measles in 3861. Another uncle, Henry Riebhoff, died at Memphis. Both were Mrs. WinkePs brothers, sons of Michael Riebhoff of Black Cat creek. Ralph Grow, former editor of the Germania Standard, now a soldier at Chickamauga, writes about Capt. Cooke's sickness and says: He is a good captain, good to his men, and is a man with a big heart and splendid discipline. Lieut. Randall will be entrusted with the care of the office while Capt. Cooke is absent. The biggest land deal ever made between Kossuth parties is just completed. Geo. C. Call gets the Dunlaplands near Ledyard, 1,770 acres of improved farms, the consideration being $36,000. There are 12 farms, one-half with flowing wells and all near the town. This is a very big deal, and one that has a good margin for Mr. Call. Mrs. Dixon, better known as Sugar Molly, will be tried before Mayor Chris- chilles Monday charged with keeping a bawdy house. Squire Raymond prosecutes and E. V. Swotting defends. She is back from Webster City only a short time. She was tried down there for not paying for having her goods hauled from Algona, but won her case and got $6 damages. Jos. M. Dye of Swea City adds his name this week to the list of republican candidates. He is Swea City's attorney and is highly spoken of by those who know him. He would without any doubt make an exceptionally good county clerk, and if he is supported by his part of the county his claims should receive careful consideration. The northwest corner of the county is a republican stronghold. J. H. Saunders, for many years photographer and school teacher in Algona, writes from Ukiah, Cal., for THE UPPER DES MOINES. Ho says " I expect some of our Algona boys are with the Iowa regiment stationed at present in San Francisco, and if so I would like a paper containing a list of their names, so we can visit them." The Algona boys are mostly south. Carl Setchell is the only one who went west. The following is the assignment, of preachers for the union meetings Sunday evenings during the month of August: Aug. 7, Baptist church, Dr. Day; Aug. 14, Methodist church, Rev. W. J. Suckow; Aug. 21, Congregational church, Rev. S. Olleranshaw; Aug. 28, Baptist church, Baptist supply. Collections will be taken at these services for incidentals and will bo divided equally among the four churches. The contract for the new Presbyterian church was let yesterday. It will be a handsome building. .The outside measurement is 56x42 feet. Inside the main room is 40x42 feet, and a lecture room divided by a curtain door is 16x25 feet. The posts are only 14 feet high, but the main ceiling is 20 feet. The roof is steep and high, and a handsome tower stands over the entrance. The church will be heated by furnace, and lighted by electricity. H. M. Scovell's candidacy for the auditorship has been mentioned before, but this week he makes a formal announcement. Mr. Scovell is station agent at Ledyard, an expert book-keeper and accountant, and Ledyard people of business standing have gone out of their way to commend him to THE UPPER DES MOINES. Mr. Scovell is without any doubt amply qualified to make a good auditor, and is going to cut a figure in the convention. A school house suggestion is to put a new roof on the central building and keep the high school there, and then build a handsome ward building in the Fourth ward. The central' building needs a permanent and substantial roof, and with it the partitions could be replaced to suit the high school. If the board were building merely a ward school, a dozen fine locations are available in the northwest part of town. If the board, however, is to build a high school building it should be central and farther, east. Rev. Dr. Pay's theme for discourse at the .Methodist church next Sunday morning will be " Methodism's Contributions to 'Progressive Civilization." Jn the evening he will preside at the union services at the Baptist church. Theme, "The Church of God." The. men who are canvassing for THE UPPER DES MOINES and offering enlarged portraits at very low prices report a very cordial'reception. This is ^undoubtedly an excellent opportunity to get a crayon drawing cheap, and the firm which is doing the work is entirely responsible. The old settlers' association will hold its annual meeting at the fair grounds Sept. 3. A meeting of the directors was held at Geo. C, Call's office Saturday and a skeleton program arranged. It is the expectation to have a speaker of prominence from abroad, in addition to a full local program. A recent dispatch itates: At the re/ quest of Maj, Gen. Miles, the Associated Press dispatch boat Cynthia II will The South Town News of Minneapolis has the following account of an accident to Miss Mattie Robinson, well known in Algona: On Sunday morning of last week a painful accident befell Miss Mattie Robinson of 2610 17th avenue south. Just as the young lady was leaving her home the animal she was driving, being a very spirited one, took fright and started on a run, turning a corner so quickly that the buggy was overturned, throwing Miss Robinson against the curb, sustaining a slight wound over the left eye, besides a contused wound of the cheek, but no serious injury. The tennis tournament will come off at West Bend Aug. 9, 10 and 11. Five clubs have already entered and at least one other is expected to do so. The West Bend club is arranging to make the toui-nament one of the events of the year. On the second day there will be a clay pigeon shoot besides the tennis games, and on the third day bicycle races and other sports. The idea is to have three days of genuine field sports, but the tennis games will be the center of attraction. The Algona tennis grounds are overgrown with weeds and our players are not in fighting trim. The Northwestern road has notified the railroad commission that it is ready to do the work if the road supervisors of Springfield township, Kossuth county, near Ledyard, will furnish the material and pay the cost of constructing a crossing over its right of way in section 27 in that township. This raises the old question of who shall bear the cost of opening a highway across a railroad right of way. In 1893 the commission held that the railroad had to open the highway including the work of opening it not only over the tracks but to the limits of its right of way. In this case the road asks the road supervisors to furnish the plank to be ' laid between the rails, etc. The secretary of the commission has forwarded the ruling of the commission. Here is what Senator Funk saye about Father Nugent, who gives the opening address at the teachers' institute in Algona in two weeks: The lecture by Rev. J. F. Nugent of Des Moines on " The Philosophy of Civilization" was one of the strongest and most entertaining discourses ever heard at Chautauqua. With the art of a master Father Nugent marshalled in grand review the prominent men and events of ancient and modern times. He gave a powerful analysis of true and false religion, demonstrating in a manner most convincing the dominant influence of Christianity in the development and progress of the world during the Christian era. An intelligent audience gave the speaker the closest attention, and at the close there was on all hands the warmest expression of appreciation. * Mike Winkle went with his mother to Chickamauga to see his brother Edgar. He is now cashier in the Webster City offices of the Northwestern. The Tribune noted his going and said: Cashier M. A. Winkle, of the Northwestern in this city, left for Chickamauga on Saturday night on a sad mission. He was accompanied by his mother of Algona, and they went in answer to a telegraph message stating that a son and brother was dying in the hos- oital. The Mr. Winkle who is sick in the hospital is a member of Company F of Algona. Ho went through here with that train load of magnificent looking soldiers that wore bound for the front. Himself, he was a fine specimen of physical manhood and seemed to be able to weather it through in any climate. It is to be hoped that the worst feared will not be the result, but that he will yet recover. His illness is stomach trouble and has boon of but a few days' duration so far. The Algona Milling company have been making extensive improvements in their mill and elevators by the addition of much now and modern machinery. With the enormous crop now coming on facilities of the very best were needed to handle the grain with despatch. Grain dumps have been placed at the mills and elevators, so that shoveling is now a thing of the past, an improvement farmers will appreciate. Under the efficient management of F. W. Dingley, tho demand for Algona flour has become so great that the mill's capacity had to bo increased in order to supply the demand. With a night crew soon to bo added tho company hope to keep up with their orders. The traveling end of tho business is being done by H. J. Wilson, and Algona flour is being sold in the principal towns traversed by the Milwaukee and Northwestern systems. With the high quality of tho goods they are making, everybody in our county should support the home mills and assist in the upbuilding of our town. MOVEMENTS. Mrs. C. O.
