Sunday evening he preached a vigorous sermon to young men. Frank Wlnkel has a new girl at his house since Saturday. Frank now has nine sturdy youngsters, five girls and four hoys. Edith O, who won the free-for-all race at the fair, won easily also at the Des Moines carnival races. She is a speedy trotter. Chester Call says the sheep business is making everybody rich in Wyoming. He saw great evidences of prosperity on his western trip. Everybody will be out Friday to see what the Terrible Swede can do. This race will settle once for all whether the pony can be beaten. A. M. Coan has the contract for the ; Will Lacy house, which is to cost about • $1,500 above the foundation. It will be a neat and commodius house. The coming of the state shoot to Algona next year will bring 150 of the crack shots of the country. The boys will have a splendid shooting ground. Goeder's great fall opening is calling attention to his handsome new store room, which is full of goods. The best quality at the lowest price is his motto. The Odd Fellows had a big time at Wesley. They say B. F. Reed fairly outdid himself in the Ancient Order of Jove. Wesley entertained right royally. J P.

Kimball is closing up his elevator business and will be out this week. C. C. Samson has traded for the property of its Minnesota owner, and will soon have it open again. The farmers' co-operative society ought to buy this property. The State Leader notes that the Northwestern hfts filed articles of incorporation for a ne* railroad from Denison north to be known as the Boyer River line. It runs up the Boyer to Wall Lake. This is the south end of our new road. Every farmer who lives within reach of Algona ought to buy a ticket to the lecture course for each one of his children. It is a rare chance to see and hear the best at a nominal cost. Twenty cents apiece for such entertainments is an absurdly low price. Dr. Day's theme for discourse at the Methodist church next Sunday morning will be, "How Christians Kill Christianity." Evening lecture, second in series io young people, subject, "Pitfalls for Young Women." Good music. All are invited. A. E. Wooster has sold his restaurant to Mrs. Laurens of Irvington.

On the'shobt oft Budd and Worthington got five Straight, but Grimm fell down afcd got but three and Smith four. It was a close call for bringing the oup again to Algona. Years ago Smith and Nicoulin held it. This winter Algona has the best entertainment course ever offered to Kds- suth county. The price of admission is almost nominal. It is greatly to the credit of our people that they respond so readily in the sale of tickets. Over 800 of the limited 500 are already taken. Yet a course of such talent is an experiment in so small a place, Whether such courses may be secured for the future depends upon the success of the present venture. It ia a source of gratification to S"upt. Spencer that the people are so liberally sustaining his efforts in presenting these entertaln- tttents. ^_^_^^——*—>—Look to Tour children's Eyes. Many parents are culpably negligent of their children's eyes, early attention to which would very often obviate lifelong annoyance and possibly Injury to physical health. If a child of yours complains that he cnnnot see clearly, that he has dull pains in the region of the eye, or that he is subject to headache,'or if he leors, looks at objects askance or with partly closed eyes, he is suffering with some defect in vision and it is your parental duty to at once consult a competent optician, lest your negligence or indifference may result in permanent injury.

Taylor has filed a nomination petition as a candidate for justice of the peace to succeed himself. The republican caucus named E. H. Clarke andJ. C. Raymond. Mr. Taylor has been justice for a long time and has filled the position acceptably to the public. A curious mistake occurred at a sale up near Bancroft a week ago. Peter Gettman, a retired preacher of Grant township, bid, as he says, $20 a head on some'cattle. The auctioneer and clerk understood the bid to be $30, and Mr. Gettman was sued yesterday for that amount. S. E. MoMahon went up to defend. Bufflneton, who collected money in Algona to go to the hospital at Iowa City for treatment, went down near Marshalltown and fell Into the hands of a quack specialist who operated on him with the usual result.

The annual meeting of the Iowa Library association was held in the Iowa building on the exposition grounds at Omaha Sept. 30. The officers of last year were re-elected and other routine business transacted. The announcement of the establishment of a free public library in Algona was received with much apparent gratification. Rev. Suckow gave a very vigorous sermon Sunday morning on the war in retrospect. He attributed most of the success of the navy to the wise naval system we have, and most of the troubles in the camps to the unwise army system. He denounced the spoils graduate optician and .haa the latest and most approved apparatus for accurate eye testing, and mistakes are im possible. Office over E. J. store, Algona. COMPANY P GOES TO DES MOINES. Gilmoro's 3012 of the Soldiers Loft Al- Konn Yesterday MoriiltiK-Twenty Left Behind. A special car took the soldiers 'to Dos Moines yesterday morning at 7 o'clock. There were 47 tiokotted, Lieut. Walsh in command. Capt. Cooko went the night before to see that everything would be in readiness for their reception, and Lieut. Randall, though up and about, is too weak to chance the exposure of camping again. Lieut. Walsh said that twenty of the boys in all were not taken, as they we're convalescing and it was not advisable for them to risk exposure. Quite a crowd gathered at the depot to see them off. Men-lit Turner was along with the white bull dog that mas- cotted the boys at Camp Thomas. Some of the boys showed up in white collars, but they were stripped of them in short order. Many had not seen each other since they left Chattanooga, and they had enthusiastic reunions. When the regiment gets together there will be a royal hand shaking. It is rumored that 20 days will be needed to muster out. A full physical examination will be made of each soldier and a record kept for use in the future when applications for pensions are made. MRS. O. B. GRIEFITH will have control of the local office of Dr. A. P. Sawyer's sanitarium treatments for ladies. Ladies please call at her place of business. ROCKY MOUNTAIN TEA makes no false promises.

Mrs. John McGetchie, who came to- Kossuth county In 1870, and who for many years was a well-known resident of Pluto Creek township, died at her home in Algona last Wednesday even* ing at the age of t5 years. She was born in Glasgow, Sc6tland, and was married there in 1843. With Mr. Mc- Getchie she came to New York state, and later to Wisconsin. Five children were born to her, Mra. Jas. Taylor and R. W. McGetchie of Algona, Robert, who was once a well-known resident here, John who went from here to Oregon City, Oregon, 26 years ago, and Mrs. Mary McCarthy of Janesville, who came out for the funeral. Rev. Ollte- ranshaw conducted the funeral exercises at the home Friday afternoon, and a large gathering of old friends followed the remains to the cemetery. Mr. McGetohle died four years ago, and since then Mrs. McGetohle's health has steadily failed. She was highly esteemed by all who knew her, a woman who filled her sphere in life faithfully. The Fuddled Courier. Bancroft Register: The Courier has boon making a rabid fight on Judge Quarton because it claimed he had been retained as counsel for the "blue sky" operators some time in the past and as a consequence wns equally guilty with the takers. Now comes ix Britt attorney in a letter to THE UPPER DES MOINES and tolls of u caso in which ho prosecuted and Attorney Sullivan, democratic opponent of Quarton for judge, defended in a " blue sky" case. It is a sad revelation, indeed, and will hero- after render the Courier useless as a campaign paper. We Are Much Pleased With our trade during Fair week. We gave the people bargains in Groceries, and we know they appreciated them, for they bought large, healthy, invigorating bills-like the Bingley bill; We still have bargains that are equally good and that are surpassed by none. We are here to do business—that's why we solicit your trade. Cowles 1 Block, No. 8. James Patterson, J. L. Donalioo & Co., Minnesota From $5 to $15 per acre.

Foster writes to Mrs. Foster ,at he has been sent to Denison to as- at in surveying ft railway line to Ai- ?nft. The orosneot of a new road is system of appointment and promotion unsparingly and with good reason. His summing up was that providence is only with us when we act intelligently and honestly. The local pastors met at the residence of Dr. Day Monday afternoon and organized a city ministerial association. The object is to promote and maintain a fellowship of the various clergymen and to consider such topics as may be of common interest to all the churches. Meetings will be held regularly each Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock. A constitution was adopted and the following officers were elected: President, Dr. Day; secretary, S. Ollieranshaw. The owner of Grover C. was down last week seeing if he could sue the agricultural society because his horse sprained his leg on the track. One shoe was wrenched a little bu,t he was ordered to run by the judges and it is claimed that the sprain resulted. The lawyers told him that he didn't have to run his horse if he did not want to, and that the society was not liable. No one believes that the strain resulted from the shoe, anyway. Wm, K. Ferguson was in Monday to cut $2,000 of new $5 bills apart. THE UPPER DES MOINES cutter separated them as though they had been eight cent print paper. The First National got $12,000 more bonds at the popular sale, and is issuing new currency to the extent of $10,800 on them. This issue when it is out will bring their circulation up to $22,500. This increase of over $10,000 in our local money supply will furnish lots of currency for business. The Bancroft Grand Army post had a pleasant meeting Friday evening. of Tor Sule.

The board will open bids for the new building tomorrow and begin work at once. D. A. Haggard has appealed to the court for higher damages than were allowed him on his half lot. The appraisers gaye him $225. A. E. Morling acted as attorney for the board at Emmetsburg. Messrs. Sullivan and Swotting were over. STATE SHOOT AT ALGONA.
