THIS TRUSS ME I I WEAR THE WSTUOKB THUSS A truss embodying the simplicity and du- jrability of all other trusses, and yet unlike pfany of them. The most simple truss ever femade. Is practically indestructible—wears II forever. Made on strictly hygienic princi- f.ples—no cumbersome springs to pass about jthe body. It gives perfect freedom of action without the slightest movement of the truss. Does not take one-half the pressure to hold the rupture that the old style takes. Hold the rupture easily, yet flrmly and surely. It stays just where it is placed. It is the cheapest high-grade truss yet produced. It is absolutely guaranteed to fit and hold the he ^ \a with comfort, or money will be r.efuni' Don' , jjy other truss before giving the "W; >*rial. Fon "Saranteed by DLEY, <. Wfcen you take a Partioute ,,1 * s-4: A BAILBOAD WEEOK. A Calamity Which May Prove a Blessing—Save This and Wait Until Wednesday, Aug. 10, 18OB. The entire stuck of a large wholesale clothing and shoe house, while en route from New York to Chicago, was wrecked by fault of the railroad company. The shipper and the company failed to agree as to the actual loss, and the railroad company was forced to take the slock, and will turn it into money at once. The stock consists of $175,000 worth of fine men's, boys' and children's clothing, and ladies' and gentlemen's shoes. Part of this mammoth stock has been shipped to Algona, Iowa, and removed to the large store building one door west of the armory, on Stale street. As the building has only been leased for four days everything must go rapidly. This great railroad wreck sale of fine clothing and ladies' and gentlemen's shoes will commence on Wednesday, Aug. 16, at 8 a. m., in the large store room one door west of the armory, and will continue until Saturday night, Aug. 19.

Wickler is our informant. He says the fish got there in high water, but just how or where from we did not inquire. FOR time loans on real estate apply at Kossuth County State Bank.

This is a great convenience to the boat riding public. The Milwaukee poured five train loads of excursionists into the Okoboji lake country Sunda.y. It was the biggest excursion of the year, and the crowds at the hike were very great. An old timer is visiting Algona in Mai. Newman.

The company made no complaint when the purpose of the ditch was explained. Judge Cook and his daughter Mabel were in Algona Saturday from the farm. The judge is planning a rustic cottage for his own use during the summer, to be built of native boulders with a fancy roof. He will put it up soon and is now getting the rock on the ground. Fully 16 cars loaded completely full went north Saturday over the Northwestern for Minneapolis and Duluth. The round trip rate to Minneapolis was cut to $2.50 and to Duluth to $5. Agent Vesper sold to some less than 100 from Algona, many of them going to Duluth. The reports yesterday are that the Milwaukee company is buying up the Iowa Central stock.

Prof. Spencer sends this note from Storm Lake: Our former townsmen, Messrs, Darr and King are operating a laundry, Their present location is too remote from the center of the town but they expect to remove to the business quarter soon.

At this coming term of court the question of the new award of dower to Mrs. Lund Is to be finally disposed of. The commissioners awarded Mrs. Lund 120 acres besides her home 40 as dower, but these 120 acres have been sold to Mr. RUBS and he will resist the award and other creditors join. It is a complicated and interesting question, Ambrose A. Call will start in about two weeks on a fine outing. He and Frank Call of Sioux City and some others, including S. C.

They owe Martin Rahm $300 for board an'd Leonard Newman a like amount for hay, and can't' pay. Their grading tools have been attached by Attorney McMahon and St. Benedict may have a good grading outfit left when they depart. They claim that they hired their men by the month and that the wet weather has bankrupted them. Mike O'Rourke hired by the day and paid only when the men could work. Mike is said to have made the best out of it of any of the contractors. The old Gorman case against the Minneapolis railway company comes on at this term of court. Twelve years ago or more a brakeman named Gorman was killed at Lu Verne. The case was tried once and sent back by the supreme conrt. The rail way company changed lawyers about that time and lost sight of the case and when it came on for a new hearing did not appear. The Gorman estate got a judgment of $7,000 by default and the year to open H up passed without the company finding out what had happened. Since then it has moyed heaven and earth to get the judgment set aside, and finally has succeeded. The case will now be tried again on its merits. Geo. E. Clarke has been the attorney for the Gormnnn from the beginning, and still has proof ready to show the negligence of the railroad. NOTICE: My office will be closed next week. A. L. RlST.

Everything is figured out scientifically and in accordance with the nature of heat and laws of heating. WE GET THE HEAT INTO YOUR HOUSE. TO-DAY is not too early to talk with us about yonr furnace.
