Better Clothing for Fall and Winter than ever, and at lower prices than ever, and this too in the face of the very decided advances in the cost of all kinds of material and labor. The forced demand for very cheap clothing is being met in many quarters by garments almost worthless. A week or two of active service and the garments lose their entire shape. We don't sell that kind. •CONFIDENCE,- What a wonderful amount of meaning in that one word, CONFIDENCE. The business of the world hinges upon it. It applies to all walks in life, and to the clothing business in particular.

The Merrie Bell opera company fo fair week is a big attraction, the bes the opera house has ever had. Geo. Coffen has sold 20 two-year-old feeding steers at $39 a head. Feedin cattle are worth money this fall. The school board expects to advertis for bids on the new school house a soon as the site is settled, and get th uilding enclosed yet this fall. The lans are practically agreed upon. A goodly audience was out for Chat- anooga last Wednesday evening, and njoyeda good drama well presented. The Algona house Is to be fitted up gain, opposite THE UPPER DES KOINES office. Mr. Avory is fitting It P- The Methodists have collected in cash he past year over $18,000. That is the eport to the conference at Emmets- urg. Wra. Bossinghara is figuring some on moving to Belmond. He has sold out its store at Hobart, and gets a house and lots in that town. The purses for the horse races at the Bounty fair are the best ever offered by he society. There will be fine exhibi- ions of speed each day. Twelve members of Company F went to Emmetsburg last week to attend the uneral of Lieut, Grout of Company K, who died after being brought home. Myron Schenck brought a civet cat to town to show last week. It Is a rare animal in these parts, somewhat like a skunk. It puzzled the local zoologists. E. S. Johnson is having rock hauled to the old Rev. Burnard lots on the corner east of Henry Walston's and will soon begin a fine large house there. The contract for the steam heating plant for the new church has been let to C. M. Doxsee, at nearly $1,300. The heating will be both direct and indirect. A lot'of farmers were out to see the corn busker work at the Johnson implement house Saturday. It husked the corn and cut the stalks Into fine fodder. Algona Chapter, No. 68, O. E. S., Invites all Masons and their families to be present at an entertainment given in Masonic hall, Thursday evening, Sept. 22. Archbishop Hennessey seems to be in no hurry to supply the Algona Catholics with a pastor. No one has yet been sent to fill the place left vacant by Father Nicholls. Eugene Telller has been taking the school census of the town. He does not find as many of school ago as there were a year ago, but the totals are not yet announced. First Church of Christ, Scientist, services at Odd Fellows' parlors. Sundays 10:45 a. m., Wednesday 3 p. m. "Unreality" will be the subject next Sunday. All invited. B. F.

It is expected now to have the church ready for dedication by Christmas. COUNTY FAIR BEGINS NEXT WEEK, WILL BE A STATE BEATER. Tuesday IB the First Day—Attractive Features Are Numerous—Big Crowd to Bo Here. During the Fair 'Ms Stoves and Ranges" Word came last week that Rev. E. S Johnson of Mapleton, chaplain of th< 52nd, is down with the fever. He i secretary of the Methodist conference that meets at Emmetsburg today, and being unable to attend Dr. Yetter was notified. The letter did not state how serious his attack is. Clifford Thompson, who was hurt in the runaway two weeks ago, was compelled to undergo a surgical operation last week on account of an abcess that had formed. Dr. Keneflck called Dr. Morse and Dr. Peters of Burt to assist him. The young man is now getting better, but is seriously ill. Considerable curiosity is expressed over the future of our local military companies. Everybody seems to have the idea that there will be a decided change in the organization of the state militia, if it is to be retained, and many of the soldiers who are now members are certain that they do not want to continue as such. Lavvspn, "The Terrible Swede," who will do or die against the Cory pony next Friday, made 875 miles on a bicycle in 48 hours in Washington last year. He was in town Monday and looks a better record than that. Three tandems will pace him in the race here, going a half mile at a time, Ho says 1 he will keep up any pace they can set. Electric Light Bigelovv is still fuddling with his contract. He brought some boilers in last week different from the ones specified and tried to get the council to accept them. The council notified him to comply with the specifications, and he left Saturday evening, ostensibly to buy the boilers he contracted to put in. The council has notified his bondsmen that the time of his contract is up and that they will be held liable for all damages by delay. Bigelow may be a good, reliable contractor in other parts, but in Algonahe has thus far put in all his time trying to get out of doing as he agreed. He has evidently struck the wrong town. The county fair opens next Tuesday. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are days for the public. A splendid )rogram of races, balloon ascensions, ,rick bicycle riding, music, and side attractions has been prepared, besides which the agricultural and stock ox- jlbit will boat anything in the state.
