Regular meeting of Prudence lodge tomorrow evening. The W. B. C. meets tomorrow evening. Supper at the Congregational church at 6 tomorrow evening. A new boy came at the Rosewall bakery Monday, and all are doing nicely. The local markets are: Wheat, new; 52c; oats, 18c; : barley, 22o', flax, 80c;' corn, 23c.' Alf. Chapin's new home is under way. The foundation is already in, and the work will be pushed. Miss Lovell, stenographer for Clarke & Cohenour, is taking a needed rest, and Bert Edmonds is filling her place temporarily. Regular meeting of A. O. U. W. next Tuesday evening at 8 o'clock sharp. Work in the second degree. All members requested to be present. Fifteen telephones were burned out Friday night by the electric storm. They were quickly repaired the next day, however, and no great loss resulted. Andrew Mitchell's threshing machine turned out 3,050 bushels of oats in one day's threshing on the Herman farm in Union. This seems like a very good record. A piano stool was left at court house hall about a year ago, and up to date no claimant has appeared. Matt. Holzbauer would like to have the owner take it away. Andrew Mitchell fell from his thresh ing machine in Union one day last week, striking his side on the wagon box below. It is thought a rib or two was broken loose. Mr. Durdall's two little boys sport a splendid new Cresent tandem, which he sent them from Chicago lust week. The little fellows are already becoming experts on the new wheel. Something killed forty fine full-blood Plymouth Rock chickens for Irving Dodge last night. Each one was bitten through the back.

A iole in the ground into the coop is arge enough to indicate that perhaps t might have been a woodchuck. Mrs. Wm. Ward has moved to Algona and become a resident here. With ler daughter, Irene, they have taken the house north of the J. B. Winkel office and are nicely settled. J. W. Robinson's new hardware store at Sexton Is open and doing business. Soward Robinson will have charge of he business at present. He will probably not move his family there before spring. The Epworth League of the Method- st church have arranged to buy a pipe organ costing from $1,600 to $2,200 and have it in the new church for the dedication. Prof. L. J. Smith Is an ex- >ert pipe organ player. Uncle Joe Tennant and wife are still n northern Minnesota and having what seems to be a most enjoyable time, barring Uncle Joe's hay fever, which troubles him more or less. They will start home this week. A considerable quantity of the mate- lal for the electric light plant is on the ground. Pour carloads of poles are at ihe Northwestern depot, and men are at work shaving off the bark. The poles are 20 and 30 feet in length. An evidence of quick work is shown n the receipt, on Monday, by Mrs. L. A. Sheetz, of a draft for $2,000, which was one of the policies held by the doc;or, in the Ancient Order of United Workmen. This loss was paid in just 30 days from the time of death. John Sharp is back in Algona from Oklahoma. He says he will stay. His wife died there in June, and since then ie has lost interest In that country. His brother Is back in Nebraska, and he says will come to Algona, probably. Mr. Sharp says he liked Oklahoma very well. Owing to the extra large demand made by outside towns for the Algona Milling Co.'s flour-they have been 'orced to take their regular salesman, H. J. Wilson, off the road for the present. The new wheat is of the finest quality and will grade equal to Minnesota No. 1 northern. Carl Setchell was in the hottest of the fight at Manila a week ago, being in the 13th Minnesota regiment, which supported the Astor battery. It is of course too early for his people to have heard from him personally, but since his name does not appear in the list of injured it is thnught that he is safe and sound. O. B. Durdall rendered efficient aid to the sick soldiers last week. He was in Chicago when they arrived there, and met them at the depot. Ho says the railway officials gave him every assistance in getting the hoys trans ferred to the various roads west, and announced their willingness to comply with any request that might be made. The contract was let yesterday for furnishing the art glass for the new Methodist church. Eight bids were in, and some of the houses had repre^ sentatives on the ground. The contract was let to the Pittsburg Plate Glass company. The designs they presented are very handsome, and include cut glass for the window over the entrance. Charley Rlst was in yesterday to say that the unruly boys who were fined last week for too free Indulgence In the fluid which always exhilerates and sometimes intoxicates should not be charged up to Hobart, as this paper had it. It gives us pleasure to make this correction, and to know that Hobart's citizens are of the law-abiding and orderly kind. Col. Thos. F. Cooke was seen by visitors and sat up yesterday for the first time since he was confined to his bed with typhoid, which was on the day of his arrival home. He Is still very weak, but is looking well for one who has been through the siege that he has. He hopes to be up for good Inside of a week, a wish that will be shared by all our people. Without any unusual display the members of the Rebekah degree lodge of Algona have been at work for several days making sheets, pillow cases, and such other articles as can be used by the soldier boys, and the goods were boxed and sent yesterday. It is a work which will surely be appreciated, as all reports agree that the boys are notably short of these articles of comfort. Whittemore's new Methodist church will be dedicated next Sunday. A notice received at this office says thai Rev. W. S. Lewis of Sioux City wil: have charge of the services; also thai there will be three services during the day, preaching by Rev, Lewis at 10:3( a. ra., preaching in German at 3 p. m. by Rev. H. R. Schmidt of Burt, and at 8 p. m. the services will be in charge of Presiding Elder Yetter. Our Wesley correspondent, In report Ing the result of the caucus over there. f ives voice to a sentiment which shoulc ecome popular if republicans propose to elect their ticket each year. There is no sense, and certainly no good pol itics, in holding caucuses and conven tions unless republicans propose to abide by the nominations and vote the ticket, assuming, of course, that fair ness prevails and the nominees are ca pable men. But one new candidate shies his cas tor this week, and that is L. T. Clemenl of Germania, who will stand for the nomination for recorder. Mr. Clemen is a most worthy and capable man for the office, and the republicans coulc make no mistake in using so good tim her as is found in him. This papei takes no sides before convention day but it has no hesitancy in commending Mr. Clement to the consideration o the republican convention. He is good man. Members of James C. Taylor W. R C. met during the past week at the home of Harriet E. Stacy for an after noon of sewing, the result being a bar rel packed with hospital supplies fo Company P of the 52nd, or any other who might be in need of articles sent including 24 sheets, 26 pillow covers, 1 feather pillows, 106 handkerchiefs, 26 glasses of jelly, with a generous suppl; of towels, old rags and reading matter Express charges being paid by local W R. C., we hope for its speedy arrival a Camp Thomas. The Odd Fellows have a very pleas ing way of remembering those of it members who are faithful and continue, long In the service. Thi? time 0. Seise Is the recipient of a beautiful fold medal, the Significance of which is that he has been ft continuous member of Algona lodge for a period of 25 years. The presentation was made at the lodge meeting last Saturday night, at which Mr. Helse responded feelingly and in food taste. It is a memento to be high- y prized. We believe the only other medal of the kind held here is by J. F. Nicoulin. Bills are out for the big picnic of the Modern Woodmen, to occur Sept. 1. One of the attractive features will be in address by Rev. W. J. Suckow, the new Congregational pastor at Algona, nd the Woodmen are fortunate in se- uring him for the meeting. The A1- ona Cornet band will furnish the nuslc, and there will be a basket dinner and a long list of athletic sports ommon to this kind of gathering. A novel part of this program will be he contest for the prize aggregating 3 " to the woman who whistles first ifter eating three crackers." /It is a new thing and will create no end ot un. A wind storm struck this section Frl- lay night about 7 o'clock, accompanied >y a very heavy rainfall. Considerate damage was done, chiefly to the corn fields, where the stalks In many >luces are laid flat on the ground, erhaps the crop will not be seriously njured, but It will do it no good. Con- tderable grain, which was still in the ahock awaiting the threshing machine, tvas scattered and badly wet, and no loubt it was Injured to some extent. A few wind mills were more or less wrecked. The full extent of the dam- ige Is hard to get at. It is re- lorted the Goedortz grove, not far om Sexton, was demolished. T. T. Julian says his wind mill was partly wrecked, and Ellis MoWhortor's s blown down and badly injured. everal parties were getting repairs at Algona and Burt Saturday morning. "To doubt considerable damage was done in a small way that will not be re- jorted. SEE our new glassware. M. Z. GROVE & SON. IF you want bargains Galbraith & !o. have them this week.

You have but to make a comparison between the "BUCK'S" ranges and many others on the market to be convinced of heir superior and honest construction. The white enameled oven door and 'ack is a valuable feature found in no other range. The heavy covers will tip the scales where others fall; the ventilated flre baok warranted for 16 YEARS will find only ia the "BUCK'S." Further, the range is made by acompany jhat has been making stoves for nearly half a century, and will probably oon- iinue for another half century, (for they koep up to date,) which will insure get- ilng repairs should you ever need them.

Can be carried in your vest pocket or lengthened to 24 feet. They are used as two single ladders, one extension ladder, one step ladder, or a trussel. One of these will take the place of five old-fashioned ladders and excel each one. 4—WAGON BOXES.
