UPPER DBS MOINB8: ALGONA, IOWA. WEDNESDAY, MAY 31, 1899^ KACES BEGIN NEXT WEEK. Bancroft First on tlie List—Algona's Come a Week Later. Biggest Field of Good Horses This Section Kvcr Saw—Miscellaneous County News. The opening races in the Bircher June circuit occur at Bancroft next Wednesday and Thursday. The Alpona meeting comes in two weeks. The entries are far ahead of anything over before known hereabouts, and the races will be the best seen in northern Iowa. Itnticroft Grovcr C. and Lon Ropers are to run a 1ml f mile dash Saturday for $100. No post ponement for ruin. . Rev Bond will deliver the memorial day oration. The exercises will be at Jefferson hull at 2 o'clock. Marahalltown. The state report as to crops is as follows: Some progress has been made in planting corn in districts where the soil was sufficiently dry. In considerable portions of the northern section the work is practically completed, though some will need replanting. For the state at large it is estimated that about three-fourths of the corn area has been planted, but the condition of the stand secured in the early planted fields will necessitate more than the usual amount of replanting. Undercx- isting conditions it is probable that planting operations will not bo completed in all districts before June 10. Experience In past years proves that with the soil in good tilth, and wi'.li thorough cultivation, a fair output of corn may be secured from good seed planted at that date. Grass and grain crops are generally doing very well. THE EXERCISES YESTERDAY. Eureka Hftfness Oil is the best preservative of new leather and the best renovator of old leather.

Ira Dingor's little daughter received no relief while in Mason City last week and was obliged to return with the pin still in her throat. She is now able to eat, However and nothing \vill be done about the pin until it turns up elsewhere or causes twin, which it is hoped it wil not. Carrying pins in the mouth is a bad habit, ana this ought to be warning enough to other children. __ __ S-wun City lleriilU. Johnny Hart pitched two great games of ball for' Rock Island last week, one of 11 innings in which the opponents only got two scores, and the other in which the visitors only made three hits off of his delivery and did not get a man farther than sec ond base. John is doing as good work as any pitcher in the western association, and we' hope to see him keep at it. TltoilUn Topic. W T Hall started out with a petition to secure members for the organization of an I O O F lodge in Tilonka. It took a very short time to secure a list of ten names, and the lodge will probably start in with, a membership of at least twenty five. There are about, 20 residences either finished or now under construction, and many more will be erected as soon as workmen Cft One of the 5 substantial improvements to the town is the 3,000 trees which the town 'I'licro is u. uuj.<-'i' lluilvj v --^^"'" - ^", J i . ,.,' , ° of 25 'phones.

The Ledyard base ball club crossed bats with the Swea City team on the Qeruiaaia diamond last Friday afternoon and were defeated by a score of 7 to 0. The game was a very interesting one from start to finish. , . Prof. N. H. Connor, who has been principle of the Ledyard schools for the past year was defeated by E. Moore Carpenter, of Dexter, Iowa, by a vote of 3 to 2. /The members of the boardhadno "kick coming" on Mr. Connor as a teacher, but it was thought best to make a change. Will Celebrate. Preparations are under way for a big Fourth of July celebration at Ledyard. It is the only celebration yet scheduled in the county. TAKEN TO THE ASYLUM. Olson, WUo Tried to Cut His Throat up Near Bancroft, Is at Independence. Sheriff Ohristensen and C. R. Lewis took Olson, who tried to commit suicide near Bancroft last Wednesday, to Independence Friday. Olson some time ago advertised for a wife and got a bad one. She brought her paramour along to be hired man and got Olson to deed her all his property. Finally she ran away with the hired man. Olson brooded over his troubles until last week when . he jabbed a knife into his throat. He failed to sever an artery and went about his work afterward, but his neighbors finally found out what was the trouble and got a doctor for him. Mr. Lewis Bays he is still bent on suicide and refused to eat anything while on the road. to Independence. He says he will starve to death. His throat was found in bad condition by the doctors at the hospital, but that will not prevent his recovery. . .' While at the hospital Mr. Lewis visited Wm. Carter, the Irvington pioneer. H.e says Mr. Carter's mind seems to be falling, but otherwise he looked well and seems to enjoy life. Perfect Memorial Day Weather, Kx- ccpt lor the Wind-Father Hnlpln as Orator-Tlio Sunday Sermon. Memorialday brought a great crowd to Algona yesterday. The weather was propitious and at an early hour the opera house was filled to overflowing, many being unable to gain admittance even to standing room. The town was gay in flags and bunting, and business was suspended. The program at the opera house was carried out as published. Commander Brunson called to order and introduced E. Tollier, who read the orders of the Grand Army. Ruv. Stiles pronounced invocation, Frank E. Tel Her sang an appropriate solo, Miss Bertha Hancock recited a poem describing a scone of the Cuban conflict, Miss Crete Goddard and a chorus of school girls gave a song, and Father Halpin was introduced as orator of the occasion. As ho arose to greet the packed building he found an expectant audience, most of whom had never heard him speak, and ho did not disappoint them. He spoke in easy, polished periods, with the self possession and readiness of an orator, paying tribute to the veterans before him, reviewing briefly the struggles of the past, telling of the meaning of Memorial day, and then broadening out to briefly review the causes and results of the war of the rebellion. He showed how the south had been benoh'tted, the country united, nnd the cause of civilization and morality advanced. In conclusion he spoke briefly in memory of the mistaken soldiers of the gray, reciting impressively a verse of that beautiful poem "The Blue and the Gray." The oration was interrupted many times by cheers, and a hearty round of applause at its close expressed the gratification of the audience, It was a most fitting memorial of the day and occasion. AT THE CEMETERY. A strong wind which sprung up about noon made the afternoon march to the cemetery unpleasant, but a long procession was'formed and the grounds were filled with people. The cemetery never looked belter and. the soldiers' lot with its linelv mounted cannon and its new grave markers was as fine as there is anywhere. The exercises consisted of a [salute fired by a squad from Company F, music by the band, the regular exercises of the Grand Army ritual, reading the names of soldiers buried elsewhere who had been rcmem- borod by boquets, and songs by a chorus of public school children led by Miss Hanaford. Ethel Laird gave a very fine recitation, and Rev. Stiles spoke the benediction. MEMORIAL SUNDAY SERVICES. Memorial Sunday shared in the fine weather and big crowds with Memorial day proper. The Congregational church, where the exercises.were held, was unequal to the demand upon it and many were unable to get in. All the protestant pastors joined in the exercises, appropriate music was rendered by the choir, and beautiful decorations ornamented the church. The Grand Army veterans, Sons of Veterans, Women's Relief Corps, and Company F occupied reserved seats. Rev. Suckow preached the memorial sermon, taking for his text " The New Patriotism." A synopsis would do injustice to this masterly discussion, which added to his already deserved reputation as a scholarly and impressive speaker. History, he said, showed that patriotism had become more elevated in its mission with the ages until in the war for American independence, the war of the rebellion, and the war to free Cuba from the yoke of Spain, it had reached its highest point. But there is a higher patriotism than that of war, it is the patriotism that in every day life stands for right and righteousness, and to this patriotism he urged his hearers to give their devotion. It is difficult to speak in too high terms of Rev. Suckow's sermon. It ranks with the best ever heard in Algona.
