Blackstone and Will Formen of Garner were iti Algona Thursday evening on their way to Eagle Grove to confer with the Wright county committee ou a compromise between the counties as to a nominee for ropresentaMvo. The two counties have heen together eight yours. The first representative WHS Mr. Hinttmn of Wright, who was given two terms, Then H tin cock wanted the nominee, but Wright hud the most votes nnd refused. Two years ago Hancock refused to go into a convention unless Wright would concede the nomination and the result wus that both counties had a republican on the ticket by petition, and John Christie of Hancock was elected as a populist. Several plans this year for a compromise have boon proposed nnd have failed. Finally the convention ciune on tit Eagle Grove, and Wright county yielded, nominating Thos. A. Way. A resolution of instructions for Cummins for senator was insisted on by Wright and conceded by Hancock. Everybody in tho two counties is pleased with the nomination, and Mr. Way will get a rousing vote. Stnto Convention Today. Many of tho Kossuth delegates went to Des Moinoa Mo.nday, and the remainder with n lot of visitors went yesterday, The convention is in session today. Gov. Shaw, Lieut. Gov. Milli- imm, and Supt. Barrett will bo renom- inated by Hcohimiitiot). The only con- tost is over a successor to Judge Robinson on the supreme bench, Some think he will be renominated. Judge Shor- win of Mason City IB a likely winner. Chief interest will be manifested in the United States senatorship, and the platform will attract considerable attention. DoJIlver In Dakota. While the papers in Iowa have been picturing Congressman Dolliver as an active candidate for United States senator, he has been off on a lecture tour remote from Iowa politics. He spoke tit Simpson Park, S. D., a week ago. The press report reads: Ho was given the most enthusiastic applause ever given to a speaker in this section. He held his audience spell bound for two hours. His physique, style, dignity, voice and polished oratorical powers fairly hypnotized his hearers. No lecturer at this Chautauqua has ever yet caused so much enthusiasm as has the brilliant Iowa congressman. Mr. Dolliver is yet a young man, but has been in congress 10 years and is serving his sixth term, He is tho most popular man in the state of Iowa, and while ho is not a senatorial candidate we notice that several counties have already passed resolutions endorsing the sentiment that is spontaneously arising in favor of sending him to the senate. The Reporter sincerely hopes that will capture the nomination. There are to be nominated this year candidates for treasurer, sheriff, superintendent, surveyor, coroner, and two supervisors. John G. Smith and Mike Weisbrod are the outgoing supervisors, and both will be renominnted. A NEW NORMAL SOHOOL SURE. he TESTS DISCLOSE DISEASE. Tuberculosis In Two Herds of Cows Near tfort Dodge. President tt. II. Scot-Icy of the State School at Ccdnr Falls Talks of • Morn Schools. President H. H. Seerley of Cedar Falls was in Des Moines last week. He talked to the Des Moines Leader reporter freely, and what he said has an important local bearing: "The state normal has enjoyed a most remarkable development the past year. It will doubtless surprise most people to know that the school now claims to have a larger annual attendance than any other educational establishment in the state. Its annual enrollment runs close to 2,000, and it has about doubled since 1800. The institution will ask the next legislature for considerable appropriations. There is no assembly hall in which more than half the students' can meet; more recitation rooms and better boarding facilities, especially for ladles, are needed. In connection with the great growth of the Cedar Palls school, it Is given out by northwest Iowa people that they awe going to reopen the agitation /or the establishment of some more normal schools. Three years ago a measure presented in the legislature for the establishment of several normnl schools received a strong support, but was finally defeated because the state's finances would not warrant the expenditure. Some of tho lively towns of northern Iowa are still keeping this prospect of a normal school in mind. Storm Lake, Le Mars and Algona are still after it. Down in southeast Iowa two or three towns want a school, and in tho southwest part of the state Corning, Red Oak and Bedford all have tho normal school ambition in an intense form. There Is little doubt that the next session of the legislature will have n measure for 'establish Inar (it least one school in each quarter of tho state, with the possible exception of tho northeast, for which the Cedar Falls school answers verv well."

WE have just received a new stock Aroma Boll and Floxo Girdle corsets.— G, L. GALBUAITH. Dr. Sayet's came home Friday from Fort Dodge, whore he spent most of last ween assisting in testing the dairy herds of that vicinity for tuberculosis. In five days they tested 135 cattle belonging to two herds, condemning 21 head. There are three herds still to be tested and the work will be done during the coming two weeks., Probably no tests for tuberculosis have attracted more attention since the famous tests in the Lund dairy herd at Algona. They were brought about by a newspaper discussion between Dr. Kinne of Fort Dodge and Farmer Coffin as to the dangers of tuberculosis from the use of infected milk. Dr. Kinne presented the matter so strongly that the milk using public became alarmed, and the milk men themselves asked the city to request tho governor to make an investigation. In reply to this request Gov. Shaw . wrote to Mayor Bennett: "I believe the action you have taken Is very wise. If every city council would pursue the same course, it would, in my opinion, result in much good and the condemnation of u very large number of cows, tho unhealthy product of which is now being consumed by those who have no means of self-protection." All of the 21 cattle thus far condemned will not be wholly lost. The law allows them to be shipped to Sioux City or Cedar Rapids and tbere be killed under strict inspection. If the tuberculosis Is confined to a few glands, the carcass can be used for meat. If it is general the carcass .must be destroyed. In other states much more Is being 1 dona to exterminate tuberculosis in cattle than in Iowa. There is now no question but that consumption isspread in milk. All authorities agree that it Is criminal carelessness to use milk from non-tested cattle unless it is carefully boiled. This investigation at Fort Dodge will doubtless lead to similar tests of milk-furnishing herds in Iowa, to the great advantage of the milk-using public. Dr. Bayers will be with State Veterinary Gibson in all of his tests, and will be in Fort Dodge several days each week. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. DEATH FROM DRINKING- GASOLINE. Democratic Stnto Convention. The democratic state convention meets in Des Moines Aug. 16. The county convention will meet in Algona Aug. 9, next Wednesday, to elect 12 delegates. The Jjocul Soimtor«Uln. Spencer Reporter: The senatorial fight at Einmetsburg is a record breaker and Clay county's candidate is still in the lead with better chances than ever. Ames Times: The forty-seventh district senatorial convention met and sweat and spluttered through two or three of the hottest days of the past week. Swea City Herald: It may be necessary yet to spring a new man and even then it would be difficult for the three candidates to give somebody else what they want but can't get. Erametsburg Democrat: Some say the delegates cannot agree and others say that they don't want to agree, because they have discovered that Emmetsburg has the best beer in northwestern Iowa and they propose to stay by it just as long as their respective candidates are willing to pay expenses. Emmetsburg Tribune: Crim of Emmet and Clarke of Kossuth are still the leaders as far as outside estimates go, but what the result will be at the next meeting is only problematical, In the meantime the candidates are taking all possible advantage of this vacation period and are doing their share of the work that may bring matters to a crisis at the next gathering of the delegates. Emmetsburg does not regret this deadlock. We like to see so many strangers in town, who fr6m all accounts do not regret in the least to he detained here BO long, for they manage to enjoy thewselyes fully, County Politics. The Wesley News says Mr. Ward will make a good treasurer and ought to be nominated. The Burt Monitor announces that Mike Weiebrod will be a candidate to succeed himself as supervisor. Mr. Welsbrod has been a good member of the board, and he will be renominated without doubt. The Emmetsburir Reporter gives Geo. F. Holloway a cordial endorsement ior sheriff. It says: George is a whole-souled, genial fellow, and, the republicans of Kossuth would honor themselves in honoring Mr. Holloway. Kenneth Weaver, the Two-Ycar-Old Son of the County Auditor, Dies Suddenly Sunday. The whole community was shocked to loarn of the sudden death of little Kenneth Weaver Sunday morning about 11 o'clock. His father, M. P. Weaver, wus cleaning some clothes with some gasoline and told the little boy who wus playing about that it was not water. But us he turned his back the little one grabbed the can and took a swallow. His father saw him the instant it was done and gave him to Mrs. Weaver, who began giving him milk, while he went for the doctor. The little one was got to vomit twice in a few minutes, and Dr. Morse was on the ground soon after, when he administered further emetics. But the poison had spread and life lasted only a little over an hour, during which time he was in great pain, The funeral was held Monday at 3 o'clock, Rev. Stiles officiating, and gentle hands laid the little one to the rest he begged for. During all the last hour of his life he asked to be put to bed and kept saying In his broken, childish speech "good night." Good night were the last words he spoke, a good night that will make every lover of childhood weep. Kenneth was a very bright, lovable boy, the pet of the neighborhood, and the recipient of home care but few enjoy. He would have been two years old in exactly one month, The sympathy of kind friends is with the stricken parents, but time only can cover a wound that will never fully heal.
