The second annual plowing contest •will be held on the grounds of the Iowa Agricultural college about the 5th of October. Here is a chance for some of our boys. Alex. Brown, one of the real pioneers, was up town Saturday after a long struggle with rheumatism. He is looking rather thin, but is again feeling like himself. J. F. Nicoulin is building a brick veneer store 66 feet deep east of the Stock meat market for the Vincent racket store. He will put in an ornamental front. It seems now that a badger belonging to Mr. Norton killed Irving Dodge's chickens. He was out that night and was caught in Naudain's barn. He had a good square meal. Gao. L. Galbraith was unlucky last Wednesday. He fell on the side walk in such a way. as to catch his hand and break it. It is a painful rather than a dangerous accident. The Frink oases from Wesley come on at this term of court. These are the oases in which George claims some $2,000 each from the firms that attached and closed up his business. Congressman Dolliver'8 talk to the old settlers Saturday will repay the crowd which will hear It. Everybody ie invited regardless of age, sex, or number of years in the county.

Clarke has been appointed referee in bankruptcy for Kossuth by Judge Shlras. All who wish to take advantage of the new bankruptcy law wilt appear before him. The appointment is excellent, The famous trick bicycle rider and a balloon ascension each day of the fair are the special attractions thus far. Secretary Peek has been out all oyer the county putting up advertising and a big fair is assured. Dr. Day has been engaged to deliver the jubilee address at Dows, Sept. 6, on the occasion of the anniversary of the dedication of the fine church edifice which the Methodists of that thriving town possess.

Lillibridge has now run away with another woman, if rumor is correct, and Mrs. Lilltbridge is after a requisition for his arrest. 'Squire Raymond is attending to the matter. S. V. Carter of Grant township hands in his card this week. He is a candidate for supervisor from his section, is a good man for the place, and will doubtless have friends in the convention who will give him a hearty and effective support. T. J. Vincent will soon open a racket store in Algona. He is one of the Vincent brothers on the old J. B. Jones farm in Cresco, and is a live and active business man. He will be a popular merchant and we predict that he will do a good business. Miss Nettie Durant will go to South Carolina to take work in a school for the darkies, and'Miss Grace Vinton of Waterloo has been chosen to fill her place in our schools. Miss Durant is a successful teacher and her going will be a loss that will be felt. Irven Cooper, a brakeman on the Milwaukee, got his right hand badly crushed at the depot Monday. The little finger was cut off, and the rest are not much better. Dr, McCoy was near and dressed the wound. He was taken to the McNamee hotel. John G. Smith and Guy Taylor attended the big shoot at Minneapolis last week. It was the biggest ever held in the west, 97 entering one match.

Clarke and Sullivan & McMahon are the attorneys. Judge and Mrs. Lot Thomas celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary at Storm Lake Friday, Aug. 19. The Pilot devotes a half column to the event which was enjoyed by a large company. Judge and Mrs. Thomas were presented with a beautiful solid silver coffee service and hand painted tray as mementos of the occasion and testimonials of the esteem of their friends. The directors of the Farmers' Milling company met Monday evening and heard Manager Hofius' report for the first two months. It showed that they are doing a big business already. The company will now build a storage room for flour and also for grain, and make other improvements to meet the growing demand. Farmers are bringing grists to the mill from neighboring counties, and everybody is pleased with the way the mill is run. The tendency to exaggeration which always marks any public excitement is shown in connection with the troubles at Camp Thomas in the rumors about Capt. Saunders of Emmetsburg. There is scarcely a man connected with the army of whom the stories would be more improbable. Capt. Saunders is a gentleman, and the idea that he has speculated in supplies is absurd. A great deal of injustice is going to be done deserving officers, if the people do not wait for all the facts before passing judgment. The school board beard the architects last Friday evening, seven of them being here with plans for the new school building. The lucky man was O. H. Smith of Des Moines, one of the leading architects pf the state, who designed the Aldrioh historical building that is being built near the oapitol. His plan calls |or a building to cost $12,600. The full details are not yet arranged and several different designs of the same building will be submitted before the board finally decides. The present plan of the board is to locate this building on the Heise lots. MANY men and women go about face to face with death. Bad liver, kidneys, constipated.

Brunson went to Chickamauga last week us soon as they could get ready. The following telegrams report their doings. The first was sent Friday to Wm. K. Ferguson: "Six of Cqmpany F slightly sick.

Cooke was able to be out of doors Sunday. He now sits up and reads and attends to his business. Ho will soon be entirely well. In speaking about camp conditions he says here as everywhere in the departments the country was unprepared for war. He says efficient corps cannot be organized on the jump. It takes years of patient organization. He thinks the real failure is due to congress, because it did not begin a year earlier to put the country on a war footing. One instance he cites is the actual lack of canvas in the United States for tents and uniforms. Capt. Cooke says Col. Humphrey of the 62nd is a model official. He says he will not believe anything against him whatever until it is proved. He says also that the rumors against Capt. Saunders are absurd. LIEUT, RANDALL VERY SICK. Jay E. Randall has been very sick since coming home. His fever is expected to take a turn today or tomorrow. It is hoped he will soon be on the mend. THE BANCROFT SICK. Last Thursday W. W. Alcorn and daughter and J. B. Johnson came with Roy Alcorn, who has been very sick. He is now resting easier.

Glen Davison and Milt Miller, whose return was noted last week, are both improving. J. B. Johnson did not bring his own son, as he has not been sick. CLARENCE YETTER WELL TREATED. Clarence Yetter came Friday and is resting easily at his home. Clarence was in the division hospital and says he was well cared for. His doctor sat all one night with him and the boys from Company F nursed him through the fever. He says a great deal depended in the wards in the division hospital on the head nurse. If he attended to business the boys were well cared for. In the hospital also he says he got good water. In camp it was either warm or sour. Clarence says the boys kept up well until the orders came that -they would not go to Porto Rico. Then they all became sick. The last parade he was in was the pne Gov. Shaw witnessed. He says all the boys were in line then but a lew, BOYLE AND CARPENTER. On (be Friday train besides those mentioned above were Mark Boyle and Roy Carpenter.

FENCING— We have an invoice of our SIXTH CAR LOAD of American Field Fencing and Corn Cribbing for this year. The fence will soon be here and we want you Kossuth county farmers to make up your minds to use it freely this fall. Did it ever occur to you that this is a Portable Fence? You can roll it up and move it quicker than you can move one strand of barbed wire. Think of the advantages of having your stock on "fresh feed" during the fall months instead of keeping them in the old summer pasture that is brown and bare. NOW WHAT ELSE?- Knowing that you would become sick of barbed wire we have made a machine with which to wind it up on spools, thus making it easy to move even barbed wire or to put it in shape to Bell. With this machine you can wind up or unwind 100 pounds of wire in ten minutes and do it as nicely as it was done at the factory. Price $5. Why should you burn WOOD FOR FUEL?- In so doing you patronize home industry. Wood is a product of this county. We paid $2,000 for wood last winter; the greater part of this money went into the pockets of laborers in Algona. Wood is the best and cleanest fuel, If you will bny a year's supply, the same as you do coal, we will make it the cheapest fuel. Why not let us fill your shed with dry wood before the fall rains commence? We sell PRESSED BRICK- FLUE'LINING, SEWER PIPE, Finished Wagon Boxes or the material for a wagon box, Fence Posts and even Hardwood Lumber—but we cannot mention everything here. Inquiry by postal card, a telephone call No. 44, or a personal visit to our office will be well repaid. J, A.
