A nice boy came Sunday to the Skilling home west of town. Matson & McCall's fine millinery display is noted this week. Clay Clement comes Oct. 27. He will appear in a now play. ' The Methodist ladies cleared S175 at their county fair dinners. The slaters will be here this week to begin slating the new church roof. Samuntha Allen visited the county fair and tells about it in Doxseo's ad. Dr. Cluster's new house is enclosed, and he is going to have a very neat and cozy home. Mrs. Wesley Hohn is visiting, relatives in Sioux City this week. She went Monday. The Northwestern is selling roundtrip tickets to Des Moines this week at $3.70 for the carnival. Parents should heed Prof. Spencer's advice. Children who are in and out of school are a nuisance. The Kossuth County State bank report makes a flattering showing for that substantial institution. Mrs. Mary Miller, a daughter of Wm. Carter of Irvington, died last Wednesday and was buried Friday. A. A. Brunson, S. Benjamin, Horan Bros, and others have been putting in some handsome brick sidewalks. Moe Bros.' meat market has a notice in this week. The Moe market has been having a big run of custom. It was a great fair. Every officer who helped to get it up should be unanimously re-elected next January. Joe Mulroney at West Bend has threshed 228 bushels of flax from seven bushels sowing, the Advance says. State Supt. Barrett has set Oct. 19 as a day to be observed by the public schools in honor of the memory of Lafayette. It will take three weeks to muster the soldiers out at Des Moines. They are liable to see some cold days on the fair grounds. Galbraith's store never had finer fall novelties in dress goods than this year. The ladies never buy till they see what Galbraith has. Horace Goddard rode from Ft. Atkinson to Algona a week ago in 12 hours on his wheel, the distance 135 miles. He returned Monday. Prof. Spencer is selling tickets for the lecture course, and is meeting with a hearty response. It is a splendid series of entertainments. Geo, C. Call has sold nine farms about Ledyard mostly to new settlers from Jones county. One purchaser will come with 70 cows in the spring. Both Grover C. and Ivory sprained their legs on the race track last week, and went home yery lame. They are fast horses, but may be permanently injured. Mrs. T. A. Correl lost a pocketbook down between the seats at the amphi- theatre at the fair one day, and failed to find it for a day. It turned up, however, at last. There will be no services in the Free Methodist church next Sunday, as the pastor has to attend the district quarterly meeting held at Peterson, Clay county, Iowa. The soldiers' relief committee appointed by the county board has organized. Mr. Barge was down from Bancroft. Dr. McCoy was chosen president and S. C. Spear secretary, The Kossuth county fair is a big success without gambling fakes, and with lots of agricultural exhibits. We believe it is the most successfully conducted association in northern Iowa. The school board will 'have their bids in next week Thursday on the new school house. They have already taken possession of the new site and will begin at once, if the court does not enjoin them. The balloon ascension Friday was -very fine, the balloon going over town. The aeronaut landed near the C. Byson home in the west part of town and jammed his foot a little, but not seriously. In the county running race at the fair grounds the horse Hugh Norwood •was riding collided with another on the back stretch and Hugh got a bad tumble. No bones were broken and he is getting up again. Mrs. C. E. Young has a peculiar box- elder tree. In August the hot weather scorched the leaves and they all fell Off. Now at the beginning of winter the tree has all leaved out again and is as green as in spring. Dr. Morse has been appointedl surgeon of the Northwestern road at Algona. Dr. Garfield held that position For many years, and his death left the position vacant. Dr. Morse is a valuable wan for the company. Services of First Church of Christ, Scientist, at Odd Fellow's parlors, Sundays 10:45 a. m., Wednesdays 8 p. m. "The Doctrine of Atonement" will be the subject next Sunday. Everybody welcome .at these services. Station Agent Brertt of Hobart was married this morning to Mies Lizzie Johnson, a daughter of the late Wm. Johnson of Cresco. They were married at the Johnson home by Rev. Suckow. Many congratulations go with them. The W. L. A. S. meet Oct. 7, silbject: Quotations from "The Lny of the Last Minstrel." Beginning of French literature, by Mrs. J. R. Jones. Reading, The Importance of Bringing Youth in Touch with Great literature, Mrs. W. K. Ferguson. Forrest Rice went to the Humboldt county fair to run a five mile race with his pony against a local bicyclist. He won easily, and captured the crowd by turning out and driving a cow off the track during the race. His pony is a good one at five miles. Marriage licenses 'have been issued to John S. Cullen mid Biddie C. Mulroney, John F. Loebig and Anna Lickteig, J. L. Meyer and Margaret Hays, Alfred Gray and Helma Hulterstrom, Chas. Phillips and Emma Bell, John Fitch and Bertha Grose. Mr. Starr has moved into his new home and the old house is now on the back end of his half block. The now home is one of the most substantlnl and best in all respects in Algona. No expense has been spared to make it convenient and elegant. This afternoon Brown's big wngon will curry two dozen or less Odd Fellows to Wesley, where 17 of them will give the " Ancient Order of .Tovo" for the benefit of the Wesley brethren. It will be H big timo for the visitors, and Wesley will enjoy their coming. Until it is finally known whether tho Terrible Swede can beat Cory's pony the guessers will hayo a free field. Sentiment is divided in Algona. Some back the horse and somo the bicycle. If it is a good day ono thing is certain, five very fast miles will be run Oct. 14, Dr. Day will preach at the Method 1st church next Sunday at the usual hours. Morning theme: "The Mystical vs. the Supernatural, or tho Mystical and Real Christ." Evening, tho first of two lectures to young people, theme, "Pitfalls for Young Men." All are invited. Services at tho Congregational church at 11 a. m. and 7:30 p. in. In the morning the pastor will speak on, "The War in Retrospect." In tho evening he will continue the series on ".Christian Evidences" by taking for his theme, "The Genuineness of tho Gospels." 'Squire Clarke fined three loafers $5 each for jumping over the fair ground fence. The new code provides that anybody who beats his way into any paid entertainment, fair, circus, opera house, etc., is liable to a fine upto$100. It might be well for the boys to keep this in mind. The Merrie Bell Opera company was as any that ever sang in Alero- na, and had big houses every night. The choruses especially were excellent. It is a company of ladies and gentlemen, and all artists. For a county fail- attraction it was the best Algona has ever afforded. Miss Ora Crabtree returned to her home in Chicago Monday evening after spending the summer with her sister, Mrs. Leroy Barton. Miss Crabtree exhibited a very handsome piece of fancy work at the fair last week, and was fortunate enough to capture the first prize thereon. The city council met Monday evening and decided to put a fair quality of pressed brick on the outside of the new electric light and water building. F. A. Gross is here from LaCrosso and work begins today. Using pressed brick will add 100 per cent, to the appearance of the building. Company F will go to Des Moinos next Tuesday to be finally mustered out of the service. There has been a rumor in the papers that the 52nd would not be mustered out but would be again "urloughed, but the boys have heard nothing of it. The regiment will undoubtedly be let go for good. G. D. Rowe has closed his bakery and restaurant and will soon move to a private residence and quit business. He is tired of the work, and Algona being ! ully supplied, he has decided to take iife'a little easier. Mr. and Mrs. Rowe have been very popular in Algona and all will hope that they will keep their permanent home here. Geo. E. Boyle was In town Monday. He says Mark is gaining slowly but was at death's door. Three consultations of physicians agreed that he could not ?et we'll. Mr. Boyle for 60 hours sat at his bedside without a moment's sleep, ind saw him past the turning point. From a big strong man he was reduced to skin and bones, and will be weeks in getting about again. Ordell H. Caulkins has bought the hardware store at Corwith, and instead of returning to New Whatcom, Wash., will remain in Iowa. Mrs. Caulkins :ame for a visit with her mother, Mrs, Laura A. Hunt, expecting to return in a few weeks. Then Mr, Caulkins came and liking his old home so well he has decided to remain. He will be a decided addition to Corwith's list of business men. E. P. Bircher offers to put up $500 that he can bring a running horse to Algona and beat the Terrible Swede on a five mile race. The bicycle record is faster than the horse record an every distance from a mile up, but bicycle records are made on specially prepared tracks. The Swede in Algona Saturday offered to get backing for $500 to go against a horse, but Mr. Bircher did not know it. A big race may yet be arranged. K'P'.' Keith has bought the Dr. Read place north of the fair grounds. It con- bains four or five acres of the handsomest ground in the town, and a comfortable home. The consideration, we understand, was $2,500. Mr. Keith has not decided when he will come to town but he will moye in soon, and leave the farm to be run by others. Ever since his attack of appendicitis he has realized that he must take life easier. Algona will welcome him and his estimable family. Geo. E. Clarke went to Spencer last Thursday to defend J. H. Engle, who was before Judge Quarton In Algona last week. He raised a new point on Carr & Parker in the case under the rule in the new code that the same lawyer cannot bring a criminal and a civil action against a man at the same time. He and Mr. Parker had a lively set-to, it ended in Mr. Parker withdraw- ing from the civil suit. Mr. Clarke says his client can not be held on the charges brought Hgainst him, and that the deal was understood by all narties all the time. The case will be bitterly fought in the coming term of court which opens at Spencer next week. A NEW RAILROAD RUMOR. Fort Dodco Snys Algoiin is to Ttnve n Line Southwest— Contrncts Ilnve Heeii X,et. FORT DODGE, Oct. 3.— Special: Six different railroads have engineering corps in this vicinity looking for the shortest routes from St. Paul toOmaha, as a result of the new Fort Dodge & Omaha road. Tho North western today let contracts for grading on a new line from Denison to Algonn, passing through Sue and Pocahontus counties, Pocahpntas Center being tho only county seat in Iowa without a road. This gives the North western a much shorter lino than thoir route via Sioux City. . _ Fnrm for Kent. Four and one-half miles northeast of Algona, 800 acres, nil or in part. Inquire of Laura A.

Tho Oiunlin ICxposition. When tho World's Fair ut Chicago ceased to exist it was supposed that wo should never look upon its like again. However, tho Trans-Mississippi Exposition tit Omaha has effectively reproduced in similarity all of the buildings which nuide tho White City so attractive In 1803. It does not now take weeks to wander through grounds and structures and then bo compelled to go away with a jumble of ideas, for tho Omaha Exposition people have profited by past experience, and hayo so improved tho arrangement of exhibits that no more than two or three days' time need 1)0 consumed in admiration and inspection of tho marvelous resources of tho west, collected together in tho chief city of Nebraska. Even tho now Midway is n reproduction of tho far-faincd Street of All Nations of 1893, with miiny improvements upon tho original. The electric lighting of the buildings, grounds and lagoon at night makes a scene of enchanting beauty, nlone worth traveling a thousand miles to see. The means of communication between the city and the grounds are ample, and the distance to be traversed is short, Tho ways of reaching Omaha are Innumerable, but chief among them is tho direct Chicago and Omaha short line of tho Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway, with its oloctric-lighted, vestibulod trains, Dining car service en route. Excursion tickets are on sale at every coupon ticket office in tho United States over tho Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway through northern Illinois and central Iowa, or call on the agent for further information. 23t3 BUCKWHEAT and maple syrup now on hand at M.

" What lovely letters I receive from Ma ry Hopkins," said one young lady to another in our hearing, and while we are not acquainted with the individual referred to, yet this remark gives us a favorable opinion of her, which we likewise have of all who master the art of letter writing, for sucu persons seldom fail to win their way to social and business prominence. Parents, give your boys and girls a chance. Buy each one of them, who is ten years old and over, a scholarship in some school of correspondence where trained teachers conduct a practical and instructive and exceedingly interesting course of social and business correspondence with their scholars, old or young, at their homes. At the school named below the price of tuition has been reduced to the remarkably small sum of $2.40 per year, payable sixty cents quarterly in advance, or $2.00 in one cash payment. For some time this school has also furnished its scholars all needed stationery, and will continue to do so in the future. Let that progressive word, "Now," which has been the key note to so many successful careers, be your watchword, and apply at once for a scholarship in the National School of Correspondence at 1805 Fourth Ave. South, Minneapolis, Minn.

Samantha Allen Sees the Fair. I was drodfully shocked (I guess that's tho word for farmers to uso) anyway I was ashamed o' Josiah when I handed him his cup o' tea at supper tlmo, an' ho gulped it down without stoppin' and past his cup hack. " Josiuh Allen," says I, " haint you got no manners?" " Wai," says ho, " haint I ben to tho Fair, and didn't tho wind an' dust blow jest as If old Natur had turned tho tall end o' her old thrashln' machine over that air fence an' got my lungs full o' dust?" When ho wrenched out his throt with another cup o' tea ho says, " Did you see that Colo's Gas Burnin' Heater, like wo bot last winter, a runnin' on tho grounds?" " Wai," says I, " I didn't see it ruunin 1 on tho grounds; I soon it standin' still with a flro In It, an' the man who was a showin' on it off didn't toll halt tho good thjngs about it. Why, a feller was standin' by it an' tho man tol' him that it wud hoi' flro all nito with cobs, when the' feller lafted him right in his face. Wai, I spoke right up an' sod, " It's so, too; 1 used ono all las' winter an' I know it '11 hoi' flro all nito with cbos, an' I know too it '11 burn up tho gas an' smoke an' won't uso moro'n haft as much colo as our olo oak stove did. Why," says 1, " this man '11 lot you take ono homo an' uso it a hul month, an' if It don't do what ho says It will ho '11 lot you fetch it hack an' ho '11 pay back your money." I jest folt like stayin' there all the afternoon a tollin' about tho good pints o' that air stove, (an 1 1 hadn't had any of Mr. Stacy's sweot cider either), an' I guess I would, too, 'f that tricky feller on tho bislcklo hadn't a showed off.
