THE UPPEK DE8 MOINES: ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 28, 1890, *'„ 1*2*- THE Ladies' Home Journal. T HE " ads." in this popular ladies' magazine are an interesting feature ; they are allworks of art, and it is a well-known fact that they are announcements of reliable business houses only —no others will be accepted. In looking over a recent uum- ber we were surprised gqods we have in stock to see how many of these advertised FIRST OF ALL there are the well-known Thompson Glove-fitting Corsets, of which we have a fine assortment on hand. Next the " Oneita" Elastic Ribbed Union Suits. Then the "Burlington" brand of Hosiery, the best line on the market. The 'celebrated Simmons line of Ladies' Kid Gloves, which includes a dollar glove in black and all colors, which we can warrant to our trade. The Philadelphia Cloak and Suit Company's line of Ladies' Suits. AND T.HE BEST part of it all is the fact that you can obtain all of these articles as cheap, and in some instances cheaper than you would if you bought them direct from the makers. Chrischilles & Herbst the road most of the time, but will make Algona headquarters. , The teachers institute closes this week. Examinations begin Friday. The total attendance will not be as was expected, but is good. It is a working session and lots of work is being done. C. M. Doxsee has just received a draft for $10 won for an " ad" he wrote for an ice cream freezer. G. M. is about the best "ad" writer in the country and would be a valuable man in a big city store. Prof. Fackler, a graduate of Cornell college and of the state normal school, has been secured in Prof. Meeker's place in the high school. He is a married man and comes highly recommended. The Hurt Monitor says that Supervisors Barton and Pendleton are going to resign and that the coming republican convention will have four to nominate. No one in Algona has heard of anything of the kind. N. O. Movick of GarHeld township Wetmore Truss.

Shadle 'grandpa" will hit it. Dr. Peters' amily at Burt has a ten pound boy since Friday night. Jas. Williams and Paulina Bigon are icensed to wed. Also Peter O. Mortensen and Lucy Gamm; and John Moser and Chistofa Tjeld. J. H. Killmar of Des Moines was up ast week to propose a scheme for put- ling a sewer in for the south side of ,own. Nothing came of it. The poor farm got two additions last week, both sick men. One was an old man, Hart, from Swea City. The other was a young man from Bancroft. It is rumored on the streets that Geo. F. Holloway is going to stay with his diving horses in the east and will not come back to Bancroft at once. Thirteen grocery firms in this part of the state have combined to buy together. They .make big savings by getting everything in carload lots. The farmers mill has a handsome awning built out to protect grain delivers and flour getters from the weather while loading and unloading, In the end F. W. Waterhouse took the cigar factory and Jack Soh« is out of it. Fred will put in a big force of cigar makers and enlarge the business. Col.

Mr. Movick is a thrifty farmer on the west side and would make an excellent member of the board. Lightning hit the grain stacks on Robt. Henderson's farm in Riverdale Monday night and destroyed the crop for this year. We understand he has insurance. The storm was heavy in that part of the county. Friday the 15-year-old son of Mr. McLain of Lotts Creek died of appendicitis. The doctors operated on him, but it was too late. The funeral was held Sunday and the remains taken to Whlttemore for burial. Prof. A. J. Jones of Ocheydan and Alice Woodworth of the same place drove into Algona one day last week and got Elder Yetter to make them one. There was an air of romance attending their trip to Algona. The Western Electric telephone toll lines are now free to all between Burt, Bancroft, Wesley, Titonka, Sexton, Germania, German Valley, Elmore, Buffalo Center, Ledyard, and Algona. The free rate will be maintained a year. The senatorial convention meets again at Emmetsburg again next week Friday. It ought not to take more than three hours to make a nomination, in fact the other counties could unite on Mr. Clarke in ten minutes if they would. The big harvest picnic at Riverside park comes Friday. The band will give a concert In the afternoon and a harvest ball will fill the evening. The boats will run all day for excursion parties, and only good weather is needed for a most enjoyable time. E. G. Comstock, Col. Comstook's Milwaukee brother who has spoken in Algona, has been visiting in Fairmont, Minn. The Sentinel says: Mr. Comstock is a democrat who believes in Bryan and the Chicago platform for 1900. Attorney Mori ing was over from Emmetsburg to act with F. M. Curtiss in taking despositions in the Kopesky case. Kopesky hopes to hold his land against Russ, his title being in a little different shape than most of those Lund gave. As Joseph Laird was coming down from Lotts Creek with the mail Saturday evening he enjoyed a novel sight. The lightning hit the ground about five rods ahead of him. The ground smoked as though a great fire cracker had exploded there. H. Voorhees, father of a well known farmer of Kossuth, came to Algona last week from Sac county, got a license to marry M. E. Allen, and again enjoys connubial felicity. He is quite well along in years and his marriage was a surprise to his relatives. John H. Ward, the Wesley candidate for treasurer, was a pleasantcaller Saturday. Mr. Ward is a fine appearing man, and has been favorably known in the county for 25 years, and Wesley has never hud a county office. He is getting many assurances of support. Judge Quarton has bought four lots just opposite E. P. Keith's place, taking in a handsome oak grove. He expects to build a home one of the these days on them and have all the room he wants. It is a beautiful piece of ground, with the arched trees just in front of it. Mr. Durdall was at Kasota last week and bought $400 of stone for a sidewalk about the new hotel. The stone in front will be 12 feet long and five inches thick, cut on all sides, on the side 10 feet long. This will be the best walk in Algona and a hint to other business houses. wheat fields grain Is going to waste for want of men to care for it. The railways are taking men out free and they get $2.60 a day. We commend this evidence of high prices to .the Courier to be used the next time itgete excited on trusts. The state board of equalization has raised the assessment in Kossuth as follows: Yearling heifers, 16 per cent.: two-year-olds, 12 pet- cent.; yearling steers, 14 per cent.; two-year-olds, 8 per cent.; yearling colts 16 per cent.; two-year-olds, 25 per cent.; ntiules, 16 per cent. They reduce the value of three-year-old steers, 7 per cent. Fred Mlehe, the giant from Swea City, was down last week looking up his chances for the sheriff's nomination. Fred is big enough to arrest a a half dozen ordinary tramps and carry them off bodily. He has had experience as deputy, and would make nn obliging and attentive official. He comes from a part of the county which is entitled to consideration also. There does not seem to be much call for specifications for the big Ledyard ditch and it may be that the county will tret no bids. Help Is so scarce that no one wants so big a job at any price. Only one call has been tnnde to find out what is proposed. Now Auditor Weaver has advertised in some engineering papers In the hope of attracting contractors. " Lew" Owens of Portland enters the sheriff's race this week and although late in starting is likely to surprise his competitors. He is an old settler and the son of an old settler, a genial enterprising farmer and a good working republican. If he should be nominated the county would get a number one officer and honor a man well worthy of it. J. W. Wndsworth writes from Des Moines that the state fair will be the largest and best in years. Alex. Galbralth, Burgess & Son, M. W. Dunham's estate, Huston and others have made entries of coach and draft horses. The horse exhibits will be the best in the west. Of cattle, about 30 herds are entered and about 40 Jacks. All the races are filled and the amusements are up to date. The committee appointed to represent the citizens who contribute the bonus for the new hotel met with Mr. Durdall last week and ordered the first assessment of $1,800 which was turned over Saturday. The hotel is well on toward the roof, and the more the people see of the general plan the more they are pleased with it. Algona will have a stylish, modern hotel with all the conveniences.

They will live .in Mrs. Dr. Sheets' house until their now cottage on the adjoining corner is completed, when they will move into a home of their own. Everybody will congratulate them and wish them all manner of happinetB Tho Lamb lumber company is having a peculiar experience at Des Moines. Its articles of incorporation have run out and it asks for a reincorporation by paying the 50 cent fee for making out the papers. State Auditor Dobson holds that in effect this is a new incorporation and that as they put their capital at $700.000 a stamp fee of $700 must be paid. The company refuses to pay and has filed suit in court for an order to the auditor to compel him -to act. Miss Ethel O. Perchia of Clinton had L. G. Wolcott, a Germania grain buyer, before 'Squire Raymond last week charged with seduction. County attorney Cohenour wns to prosecute and S. E. McMahon defend, when the defendant's better nature got uppermost and he manfully met the situation. 'Squire Raymond tied the knot with the attorneys for witnesses.
