Ho out off one rib to reach it. The Williams barber shop now has an expert from Fort Dodge added to its tonsorial force in Jo. Kopeckek. He is an exceptionally good workman. Oats and barley are pretty well harvested. The grain crop is exception ally heavy. Some of the farmers are 'talking about 80 bushels to the acre. Except in very low ground corn looks as well as it ever did hereabouts. In fact some fields promise to break the record. The stand is unusually good. J. L, Moore got his hand caught in the belting at the butter tub factory and three fingers were wrenched so that they might as well have been broken. Report comes from Des Moines that of the seven boys who went from Algona to enlist as regulars'only Jack Peterson is really going. Nothing definite is known, Edward Hug and Mabel Grubb are married.

Naudain is having the old Andy Shipman home entirely remodeled. The roof is raised, a large addition on, and the general appearance of the building greatly improved. Fred. Clarke came home from his school work at Humboldt Monday with an attack of pneumonia. Fred, has more than his share of serious physical ills, but he has a splendid constitution. The Holloway diving horses are now on their way east to Coney Island and are being billed through Indiana. Mr. Holloway has just received a bid, for them from a-big German circus at Berlin. ; Capt. Morse brought his troops home with banners flying last Wednesday. From all reports we judge that he was a very popular officer at camp. The band played in his honor Wednesday evening. Exactly 467 people paid admission to the new pavilion in the Peterson grove Sunday. Fully 600 were about the arrounds, 250 of whom went up by boat. The band played excellently and everything was quiet and orderly. Grant Sample and Mrs. W. W.

The church will also be dedicated, and a >lg conference come on at the same time. Algona will be the rallying point for Free Methodists. The same old storv. Hera is the atest crop report for the state: "The •eports generally show that rain will be needed in the near future, though no damage has thus far resulted from dry weather. Pasturage, late potatoes ind garden truck need rain." Attorney Morling was over from Emmetsburg Monday to try and settle the Burgman case. This was the first of he Lund cases, and was tried at Emmetsburg before Lund died. Mr. Mor- Ing asks to have the homestead held to over the judgment against Lund, and hat is the matter at issue. John Ducltmanton of Bancroft writes hat he has an old bible that antedates he one owned by Geo. Noble of Germania. He says his bears the date of 622. On the title page is " Elizabeth ierket, Her Book" in still plain ink. Mr. Duokmanton has had the book for 0 years and values it highly. Judge Carr WHS up from Des Moines ast week to pay some $300 that M. iiohardson had a claim to as against he Aultman & Taylor company. This the final act in one of the longest tanding law suits in the records of the ounty. These suits have been on the ockets for ten years and nearly every ttorney in town has had something to o with them. The neighbors have thrown jn and aid for the nine cows, south of Lur erne, that were killed by eating paris reen. The man who owned the OWB could not afford to lose them, and he man whose boys left the poison ly- ng about could not afford to pay for hem, Such acts of mutual assistance make farm neighborhoods friendly. The Samson & Paine elevator hae een sold to Thos. Williamson of Washa, Cherokee county, who will take pos- esston Aug. 10. J. JEt, Stoddard of lenwiok made the deal and was up yes- erday to close it.

The Iowa Central depot will stand about 100 feet back from the diagonal street sidewalk, just far enough so the passenger oar will be opposite the station when the nose of the engine is up to the street. A broad sidewalk will run back to it, and all arrangements will be for the convenience of the pub- tic. The depot grounds, freight house, etc., will be east of the depot. The managers of the new park and pavilion up the river have secured M. C. Bailey to take charge of it. He will go up every dav atlO o'clock and return in the evening. Excursions will go up afternoons and every evening and dances will be given occasionally. The pavilion is 80x24 feet and is about completed.

Mr. Berryman came to Bancroft 17 years ago, the pioneer druggist, and during the subsequent years has had an excellent reputation as a careful and successful man. He has been a life long republican and all who know him say he would be an exceptionally efficient man in the treasurer's office. The band Wednesday evening gave Frank Nlcoulln a serenade. Mr. Ni- coulln is the only remaining memberof Algona's original band that Frank Butterfleld organized In 1869. Some of the boys are alive in other parts, but many of them like S, I. Plumley and Milton Warner are dead. Mr. Nlooulin has taken an active Interest in our present band and the boys played their best for his benefit. A championship wrestling match between the heavyweight from Mason City and Worthington of Algona was one one of tho Incidents of the Clear camp. The Mason City man finally fouled Worthinglon and throw him. Alt attempts to get up a second match failed, as the Mason City man declined to try it ugain for either glory _ or money. Worthington is said to be as clever a catch-as-catch- can wrestler as there is in the state. Prof. L. C. Bowers announces himself as a candidate for county superintendent. Prof. Bowers has been-in the high school department of tho Algona schools the past year and before that was at the head of the Whittemore schools. He is thoroughly educated and a successful teacher. As superintendent there is no doubt that he would do a good work for the schools of the county. He is making an active canvass and will undoubtedly have a strong following in the convention. E. H. Slagle is the proud possessor of Admiral Dewey's autograph. Sometime in January he wrote to the admiral at Manilla requesting his signature and receiving it promptly by return mail. The envelope bore the postmark, Manila, P. I., and WHS also countersigned by Cnpt. Lamberton on board the flagship, Olympia. The admiral's signature contrasts strangely with that of Gen. Miles which Mr. Slagle has recently received, In that it bears no official prefixes or suffixes but Is plain Geo. Dewey. Algona will have a lot of circus bill boards this season. When Buffalo Bill's man was here he rented all the old space for the Wild West show which comes Sept. 21. When Lemen's man came to bill for the circus tho owners of the usual bill board ground found that Buffalo Bill's contract covered all the time from July 14, and that they could not rent again. The result is that Lemen Bros, have got to find new lots and put up a double outfit of boards. Alex White is putting up the boards, Geo. F. Holloway was down from Bancroft Monday looidng up the sheriff's nomination a little, and left his announcement. George came to Kossuth 23 years ago and farmed in Portland and Wesley townships, afterwards going to the new town of Bancroft. He is' a big, wholesouled, genial man who has made a success in business and who has been an active working republican. If be should be elected he would be a number one official. His location is favorable and he already has enough assurances of support to make him a strong candidate. J. W. Bartlett was up from Dallas, Texas, one day last week visiting at Geo. E. Clarke's and seeing a few of his old friends. He looked like a veritable Texan, and his cut of beard made lots of his best acquaintances fail to recognize him. He is north to work up a plan whereby he can hold the business of the old New England Loan and Trust company and handle it himself in the south. He says he made $200,000 for the company while he has been south, and he don't like to have the business slip entirely away. He is enthusiastic for Texas, which he says is a great state. C. W. Sarchett has 100 subscribers to his book on imperialism, which he says will be out about Sept. 1. Mr, Sarchett, while favoring conquering the Philippines, is against imperialism. As an explanation of his book Mr. Sarchett writes in the preface: " We believe it to be the duty of every Individual man or woman who is capable of writing—and most of them are except for a prudish sense of fear of subjecting their productions to the public gaze—to once in a while express their opinion through the press on any or all of the questions agitating and engaging the public thought. Otherwise public opinion or sentiment on certain lines might concentrate in certain channels for the benefit of a few, and the real expression of a majority of our laboring millions woqld be Ignored."

Our Furnaces are as good as skill and first-class material can make them. THE ROYAL and BOYNTON are constructed upon right principles to produce Heat, and have stood the test of actual use for more than a quarter of a century.
