The county board have sent Mrs. Jos. Welsh and four children to her father In SpearBsh, S. D. She is the woman whose husband left unprovided for at Whittemore and who came to the poor farm. Geo. F. Hollovvay Is getting his jumping horses up in flue shape. The reporter saw them jump Thursday, and it is well worth seeing. They enjoy it. George takes them to Kansas soon for the state fair. The Marie Bell opera company, consisting of 30 people, will be hero fair week and give Olivette, The Mascotte, Fra Diorrola, and Chimes of Normandy. This is by far the best fair week attraction ever here. All of THE UPPER DES MOINES picture takers should call for them at once. They must be delivered soon. Barney Kelley was over Monday for court. Barney is a pretty regular attendant on the Kossuth courts. Marriage licenses have been issued to W. W. Folwey and NoraFolwey, W. B. Wittenberg and Mary M. Klatter. The company that plays Chattanooga tonight is the same that has been playing in Des Moines and the western cities. A new and successful corn husking machine is to be exhibited at G. M. Johnson's Saturday. It will be well worth seeing. Swea City has one of the handsome residences of the county, Mr. Pearson's. It is right along with the big homes of the south end. Judge Helsell opened court Monday morning. He impresses everybody as a clear-headed and able lawyer, and as a dignified judge. Mart Weaver breaks the record bj A little girl came to music teacher Forde's home Sunday, a boy at the Vo- ganthaler home west of town, and a| boy at P. M. Cowan's. The Lillibridge case is likely to come to naught, as Mrs. Lillibridge has had an understanding with her husband and will not prosecute. The time has arrived for the payment of the last half of the 1897 taxes. People should bear this in mind if they do not want to pay the penalty. Auditor Calkins has fixed Tuesday, Nov. 1, as the day for the school land sale. A section in Eagle and half section in Grant will be disposed of. 'Squire Taylor assessed Bob Little $15 and costs for being drunk again, and if Bob can't raise the money he will be given a job on the street. Henry Adams is home from the war and will go into the E. & F. drug store for a few weeks. He is looking well, in better health than when ne went. The city delegates to the county con- being the first deputy ever chosen to succeed to a county office. It is a just recognition of his good work in the office and obliging ways.

Mr. Hays was over from Garfield Monday to look after his case. He is represented by Geo. E. Clarke. Clarence Yetter has had a worse ex- E erience since he came home than he ad in the war. He tried lighting a fire with kerosene and it treated him meaner than any Spaniard. He goes about with his head bandaged up.

Bigelow's contract is to have the plant in by Sept. 15, and he has barely begun. E. J. Murtagh attended the democratic state convention at Marshal town. While there he talked with Mr. Margin about the Belmond extension to Algona. He thinks it entirely likely that a proposition may be made to our citizens soon. J. W. Wadsworth and G. F.

In two weeks the "biggest and best" will open fuslonists is being held ito Fort Dodge today. We cannot learn of a very large attendance from Kossuth. It looks as though Morace Mann had been shown the marble heart by his colaborers hereabouts. Arno Heise, while riding home last Thursday noon on his bicycle, was thrown in such a way as to sprain his wrist. The ligaments are broken and he will not have full use of his hand for some months. It is a painful but not dangerous accident. Lieut. Randall has had a very bad week, but is a little better. Mark Boyle at Whittemore has also been at death's door. Both seem now likely to get up again. The other sick soldiers are on the gain, although Walt. Tellier keeps, very weak. The 52d regiment Is disbanded until Oct. 12, when the boys will go back to Des Molnes to be mustered out. Saturday special trains took them home in all directions. Most of the Kossuth boys were home already, and the train brought few of Company F. The appraisers appointed by Supt. Van Erdewyk to assess the value of the Helse lots for a school site declined to act. He has now appointed John G. Smith, J. W. Tennant, and J. W. Robinson, who will meet next Tuesday night and set a price. They are good men for the place. Everybody grasped hands with L. H. Mayne when the soldiers came in Saturday. He was looking better than when he went to war. It took nerve to leave his business and go to war at $15 a month, but that is what Bro. Mayne has. He was a good soldier and nothing Is too good for him. A telephone line is being run from Wesley up to German Valley and Buffalo township. Thos. A. Way was over from Britt Monday for the Frink cases, in one of which he is a party, and says the line is being put in so that they can get the first news when the new railway track reaches Buffalo.

Talbott has been appointed rector of a church in Indianapolis, Ind., at a salary of $2400 a year, and is preparing to leave Algona this week. The local church will at once get a new rector. Rev. Talbott has been popular with the young people during his year here, and they will rejoice at his good fortune. Next Sunday will close the present conference year for the Methodists. Dr. Day will preach morning and evening. Morning theme: "The Glories of Affliction-" Evening: "The Methodist View of Election." All are invited.

" tion ', SEPT. 17. at oT'M, JOHNSON'S This machine is intended for use by individual farmers Rev. Day closes his first year's ministry in Algona Sunday, and goes to conference at F.mmetsburg next week. He will be returned to Algona by unanimous consent, having achieved a great success here. He has been very popular with his church, is an effective preacher and occasional speaker, and a genial man to meet. He will bo- gin his second year by dedicating the new church. Henry Durant has received an unusual distinction in having a paper published in the Scientific American. It is a discussion of the floods of the Mississippi river in their influence on agriculture, and is given a conspicuous place. Mr. Durant has been making great progress in his scientific studies, and also as a writer. He is probably the best Informed man in Iowa in his fayprite lines. W. D. Nugent's five-year-old boy had an experience yesterday that he will not care to repeat. He got into his father's buggy, took up the reins, and said " get up" to the team, which was tied on the street. The team got up and when caught was up at the Hegarty farm three and a half miles north of town. The boy clung to the buggy and was unhurt, and nothing was broken, which is almost miraculous as the team ran at a terrific gait. Lincoln J. Carter's Chattanooga is a fine play and will be put on tonight by a good company. It was first played in Chicago in June and the Chronicle said of it: Chattanooga is progressing favorably at the Columbia theatre and the large audiences are carried away with patriotic enthusiasm. Mr. Carter has made several alterations for the better in the piece. The cavalry charge in the third net is now a feature of the performance and is loudly applauded every evening. The engine effect with the cinemetagraph is now working to perfection and is certainly a clever idea. The plan of getting up a dinner for the returning soldiers Saturday suggested itself to A. A. Brunson, E. Tellier, M. B. Chapin and E. C. Tuttle and they set the ball rolling. It was 11 o'clock when they began, but at 2:30 the band was out, carriages were at the depot for the sick, and as fine a spread was laid in the rink as is otten seen. Everybody helped and the Emmetsburg boys and others going west said they never ate a better meal. The procession formed and escorted them to the foot of Thorington for the train west, which stopped for them there. Dance During the Fair. Grand opening dance at the rink during the fair. The rink has been all remodeled, plastered, painted, and finished in fine style, making as fine a hall as any in the state for a dance. Best of rousio.-28t8 MONEY to loan at 6 per cent. A. D.
