The nominations were arrived at after enough balloting to give every man a show, the ticket was well distributed in the county, good men were chosen, every nomination was made unanimous, and when it was all over everybody was as well satisfied as was probably possible, with so many rather hoping that lightning would hit In their vicinity.

The illness of "Grandpa" John Heokart which was noted last week resulted in death Wednesday evening, and Friday at 2 o'clock the old settlers gathered at the old home to pay the last honors to one of the best known of their band. Mr. Heckart was 94 years old, having been born May 14, 1805, In Millersburg, Pa. He was married Feb. 13, 1832, to Elizabeth Fisher, who at 88 years of age survives him. ' They came to Elkhart, Ind,, in 1853, and to Algona in 1850, arid for 43 years they have lived in the house that, changed and enlarged, still shelters those who are left. What memories of the old days come back with the recollections of this kindly man. He was the first cabinet maker, and from his lathe was turned out the first croquet set ever seen on these virgin prairies, Fred Dunton of New York City standing by to tell him how to make it. That croquet set, staked where D. S. Ford's home now stands, was the chief source of amusement for a whole generation of young people, and did good service even after all the balls had chipped off on both sides, and all the mallet heads were gone. It is longer ago thari one cares to mention that the present editor of THE UPPER DES MOINES ran, an errand to Mrs. L. B. Read, then publishing THE UPPER DES MoiNEsln a wing of Mr. Heokart's house. Mr. Heckart was a man respected and esteemed by everybody. His' family was among the first in Algona. Mrs. Judge Call was best known of hla daughters, Mrs. Thos. Henderson, Mrs. Colburn, and Miss Emtna Heckart being the others. His sons were J, C., who is now in business at Eagle Grove, and A. U., a farmer in Seneca. In the early days no home was a greater social center, and no family more socially inclined. Mr. Heckart has lived a long, n. useful and a blameless life. He dies little known to the present generation in Algona. But those who knew Algona in the early days will drop a tear in his memory, and think sadly of the rapidly thinning ranks of those who laid the foundations in this virgin wilderness.

With the addition of many new features, international and patriotic in character, and in entire consonance with the nature and purposes of his world-famed exhibition, Col. W. F. Cody will give the residents of this city a chance to see the " Wild West and Congress of Rough Riders of the World." The main features which .have gone to make up the "Wild West" in past seasons have been retained, but in addition there is much that is entirely new. Among the new features are typical horsemen from Hawaii, Filipino warriors, and a detachment from the the famous Roosevelt's Rough Riders, who will be seen as they appeared during their memorable Cuban campaign. The fight at San Juan will be presented and enacted by men who were there and fought, showing an accurate and realistic reproduction of the Spanish fortifications, the field of action and the march and bivouac preceding the fight, with the heroic Rough Riders and horses from Roosevelt's command, re-enacting the valorous deeds. Johnny Baker and Annie Oakley will be seen in their remarkable exhibition of marksmanship. The U, S, artillery detachment will again be seen and give an idea of action in the field with cannon. The different types of horsemanship are revealed in the Congress .of Rough Riders, and is made a special feature of the exhibition, serving to bringoutthe styles of riding of different nations. The American cavalry will give their marvelous feats of horsemanship and engage in spirited rivalry with representatives from the armies of England. Germany, and Russia; the Arabs will astound with their dare-devil riding; the Cowboys ride bucking bronohoa, and the Mexicans amaze by their facile use of the lasso, Colonel Cody will be seen in the saddle at every perform,' anoe and demonstrate again his skill with the rifle. There will be the usual custom followed of having a street cavalcade on the morning of the exhibition through the principal streets.
