THE tJPPEK DES MOINE8: ALGONA,IOWA, WEDNESDAY> MARCH 8, 1899. JUNE RACES ARE ASSURED Secretary Has Ninety Paid Nominations for Stake and Derby. Evidently It Will Be One of the Big Race Meets of the Season- Other Connty News. It is already evident that the June races in Algona and Bancroft are going to bo ahead of anything heretofore attempted in Kossuth, The Bancroft Register says: Secretary Bircher has 90 paid nominations for the stake and derby races of the Northern Iowa Jockey club, which opens here June 7 and 8. They come from all the surrounding states, several of them coming from Tampa, Florida. The liberal purses hung up have attracted tho attention of horsemen all over the country and will make the coming races the best meeting ever held within tho state borders. Tho purso races will draw equally well and present indications are that stable room for some 150 horses will have to bo provided for by the management at the four towns of the circuit. Dentil of n IMoiiocr. Burt Monitor: When Kossuth county was only a place on tho map and not recognized as a great county; when tho homes were scattered and the hardships many i Lydia Grace Allen was born in a prairio homo in Portland township, Kossuth county, May 27, 1800. Her early lifo was in a family of brothers nnd sisters upon each of whom rested some responsibility for tho development of tho prairie. On May 1, 1887, she was married to J. O. Isenberger. On Feb. 27, 1890, she passed from this earthly home. She leaves to mourn her early departure, a loving husband a kind father, and five children. Bancroft HcKlstcr. Five families of new Kossuth citizens arrived on a special train of eleven cars yesterday morning from Dyersville. They are are all good, solid, substantial citizens, and •we'd like to see such a party come in every F. P. Clark of Seneca left with his three carloads of stock and implements Wednesday for Can by, Minn., where he has bought a half section of good land, and will henceforth make his home. He is of the good class of farmers we dislike to lose. was in motion he could not stop it in time, and his thumb was mashed and a very painful wound is the result. Last, but not in any sense of the word least, we wish to mention Miss Bertha Hancock. Her recitations were fine, we are sorry to say that Oermania has a class of people who are not capable of appreciating an entertainment of this high order. The majority of the audience gave the best of attention to her efforts to please, but some went there, we are not able to say what for, but they not only disturbed the speaker, but those who wished to hear what was said, by their boisterous talk, whistlinjr, etc. Such people should have been invited to leave the hall. We venture to say should Miss Hancock ever again honor Gertnania with her presence as an entertainer she will be welcomely received. Mr. Sclii-yver Will no to Burt. UNIOX, March 0.—There will be a concert at the Good Hope church March 11. Admittance 15 cents. Mr. Schryver, who had his house burnt, is talking of building in Burt. Sexton to Have a Itovlval.

At the district school election Mr. C. L. Hager was re elected director. There were three candidates R. Fitch, Ed. Johnson, and C. L. Hager. There was a large turnout for a school election. Mrs. Hall has announced that she 'will not teacli this spring. This is to bo regretted as Mrs. Hall has been a very efficient teacher. Meetings will bo hold here two nights this week preparatory to a series of protracted meetings to begin next week. The church regrets having no better room to accommodate the people who desire to come, but they hope to build just as soon as work can bo begun. PEBSONAL MOVEMENTS. E. H.

"UNOLE JOHN" OUT WEST. tjncle John, you're home again, from yonr visit way out west? I 'lowed you'd stay all winter, and enjoy a good long rest. Well, how's your daughter Sarah. son-in-law Mullay, And how'd all the crops turn out prairies of Iowa?" Seein yer takes an interest favored guest When she married Will Mullaj-, and they both moved oft out west, An' yer not the talkin' kind, 1 don't mind a tellin' yer, When I saw her face to face I scarcely knew she was her, Course it's been ten years or more, an' a gal would nat'rally change And have some western ideas that to us might seem quite strange. She's dropped the h off her name an' spells it S-A-K-A. She wears short shirts, rides a wheel, has an exerciser way Up in the actic, called, she says, "her muscle making room. (Just as mother used to have, only her's was called a loom.) She's pres'dent or the Monday club, (It don't meet to wash their clothes.) She's leader ' the lit'rary, where Tuesday she always goes. Then there's the "mothers' congress" that meets on Wednesday night. Where they discuss the question '-how to train the child up right." One night they met with Sara and mother was 'vited in, Course she had to tell 'em how she did It rais in' ten. " But mother," spolte up Sara, " you certainly must know When you was tendin' children was mor'n 20 years ago." Mother told me afterwards, that of eighteen that she see Just twelve of 'em was married, an' the others hoped to be. Mother talked with most on'em, an' as near as she could find Jest three or four who's present, left one child apiece behind. There's the " New Church Supperclub," meets to raise the parson's pay, Where a twenty dollar "spread" goes fur ten, I've hcord some say. She's a member too o' that, an' the Y. P. S. C. E. Is also secretary of a club fur charity. I heerd the resolutions which she drew and read one day, 'Bout tho squaler an' suf'rin', how the members ort to pray For them that's cold an' hungry, (an' leers cum to my old eyes.) An' the papers had 'em printed, an' a committee on supplies Went 'round an' left a copy with each suf'rin' hung'rln' sole Whose buttry was short o' flour an' whose bin was lacklu' coal. Then they have a cookin' club; " Baker's Doz- en'r" sumsich high A soundln' name they called, an' nobody can cum nigh Or be an active member, who knows how to cook or bake. Mother says its nice she b'longs more 'specially fur William's sake. In pack'ges she buys her foods, they have pic- ters ' them that et The same food that they contain, an' they are all a livin' yet. She scolds her mother dredful fur holdin' to her old way 0' cookin', says, "'twill surely make her prematurely gray." " Mince pies," she says, " is pizen, an' sassage meat is vile, An' buckwheat cakes smell to her as tho' they're about to spile, The one that tastes o' doughnuts is sure to come to grief." Fur fear it might be embalmed, she won't taste a piece of beef. One day she read a paper at the Baker's Dozen club Called, " Effect of Carbohydrates Upon the Cerebral Lobe." Mother knew the day before that she'd read, so on the sly She purchased the ingredients an' made a big mince pie. Sara never tasted a piece, Will lowed he'd try a bite If she was only willin' so mor'n half was left that night. Mother looked in the cupboard next rnornin' while she was 'round An' not a mini of that mince pie could anywhere be found. If a tramp broke in an' et it, or wherever it did go, They wan't nobody in that hquse that ever seemed to know.

Sara urged us hard to wait 'Till they had 'nuther supper an' got parson's sal'ry strait Then we'd see the oper' house, an' the city's 'lectric light, Where the railroads goin' to run, an' the totes' hotel site. When a woman's sot, she's sot, when she says she'll go, she goes, The best thing fur man to do is to stay by purty close.

A NEW TELEPHONE EXQHANGE. Algoiia Is to Have a Flue New Telephone Office as Part of the Year's Boom. Messrs. Chase and Achatzof Creston, Minn., were in Algona last Wednesday looking over the telephone exchange. They have since bought the local business of the company, and will put in a new outfit entirely and fit up a handsome office. They expect to come in about six weeks, Whether they will keep tho oHlce iu the present quarters is not known. Plenty of Time in which to pay the full amount of purchase price, and the :payments are so small each month that no* family of ordinary means need be without a Kiniball Piano, an organ, or a sewing machine in the house. If you are in the market for any of these, just drop me a postal eard—I will do the rest. O. U Tf\YLOR, ALGONA, IOWA.

Whiskey Sales In Brltt. The law and order league claim that the names of T3 men who occasionally or of tener get drunk are to be found on the drug store reports for the months of November and Peoember at Britt. A list of names was handed to Bailey which makes him fairly shudder to think what microbes and malaria might have done in these pestiferous months had it not been for the forethought and perspicacity pf the druggists in getting id ahead of the " probes."
