PEEK Haggard & Peek, [Successors to Jones & Smith.] Abstracts, ileal Estate,-£S£^ ollections, ALGONA, IOWA, BUYS A STOVE one, too—l»rge Buffalo Bill injured the county fair at least $400. With the fine weathei Wednesday and Thursday, with the good racing horses and other attrac lions, and with the growing popularity of the fair, it Is possible that he took away $1,000. The crowds took advan tage of the fine weather and cheap rail way rates to sou Buffalo Bill, and while some struggled into the fair grounds the majority did not. Tlio story Is told in the following figures showing the tickets soli) on the three days of 1807, 1808 and 1890: 189T 1898 1890 Wednesday 1,598 1,937 1,500 Thursday 8,188 2,080 1,800 Friday 1,10T 2,851 1,200 The rainy woathor Friday accounts for a small falling off on that day, President Wadaworth estimates the total receipts of the fair this year at $1,029, which with the $200 from the state will make some over $1,800. The total expenses cannot yet bo figured, but they will not be far from $2,000. The races wore good all three days. Thursday morning the track record was broken, Princo W. pacing a mile in 2:17i. Two accidents occurred In the Friday pacing races. Axlnoerfoll in ono heat and threw his driver, Swift of Webster City, who lay senseless on the track several minutes. In the trotting race Swift's own horse, Cedar Boll, foil on the buck stretch and seemed to have broken a small blood vessol. The horse was entitled to second money, but did not come undei the wire in that heat, and the judges refused to givo it a place. Next morn- Ing the judgment was sot aside and iedar Boll got second money. Tho starter in the races was ox-Sheriff lark of Mason City, who did not givo very good satisfaction. Barclay of West, Liberty, who judged e stock last year, was here again. The horse exhibit was -very fine, rhoro wore a large number of cattle 1,1 so, and about 60 hogs. McKay, the butter expert of Ames, tamo up this year again to pass on tho DUtter and talk to the butter makers. Only four creameries exhibited, which was inexcusable in view of the pains -aken to got an expert judge. Prof. McKay gave a good talk to those present and marked the Plum Crook ex- ilbit first with a score of 96. Tho Sobart creamery got second with 94*. There was a very fine display of corn, A. L. BeHon taking first on white corn and on red. He says his white corn will go 75 bushels to the acre this year. The vegetable display was good and 'he fruit display fair. Among the special exhibits Guy L. Taylor hud two pianos in the main'hall ind several fine concerts were given by ocal musicians. J. W. Robinson made a big display of stoves, and Doxseo hud one of his Colo hot air blust heaters on the grounds. Among tho side attractions the Ken- lody Bros.' wild west performances were chief. Buffalo Bill took off tho wire edge of curiosity, of coin-so, from tho Kennedy show, but it was good levertheless and well worth seeing. Tho usual number of side shows filled ihe grounds. Altogether It was an excellent fair, and but for Buffalo Bill would hava >een a successful one financially. If .he fair is to bo made a success in the uture tho town and county will have to refuse to license other attractions during fair week. Blue Front Jewelry Store.

Judge Helsell came Monday evening o close up his term of court ia Algqna, Hearing some equity oases. One of hem is a^uit brought by & threshing company agajpt lp a fiaje IB Chute held two mortgages and fore closed one without protecting th other. It [9 possible that the Kopeslij case may be heard against Russ, to hold a farm sold by Lund. Probably the most Interesting casi will be that of Pielenberg against Mer rill and Johnson over a mortgage given by Lund. Lund owned land in Seneca made a bogus sale to a fictitious party made a bogus mortgage by the fictitious party, traded it to Pleth, and Pleth to Pielenberg. The mortgage to all intents and purposes was Lund's own. In the meantime Lund sold the land to the men who now own it, and one o: them gave a mortgage to Mr. L. A. Sheetz. Clarke & Cohenour are for the plaintiff and Sullivan & McMahon for the defendants. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. W. C. Danson attended the Sioux City conference.

During tho NeHtlng Season Th«y Beuo nt Quito Tame. Few birds are more fanciful lu 'hoosing their nesting-places than wild ducks, and none are more interesting :o watch thau they are when sitting on their- eggs and rearing their young. Near houses they sometimes become almost domesticated at this season, while tame wild ducks become tamer still, and are among the prettiest aud most confiding of pets. Two pairs last year at an ancient Essex house in England used to fly up some 300 yards from the lake on purpose to make their nests In some flower beds. These beds were protected from the rabbits by wire netting and one duck used to fly on to this very unstable resting-place, poise herself or a moment and then fly on to the uest so as not to make a path through he flowers, which might betray the whereabouts of the precious eggs. This liking for nesting quite close to he house is accompanied by a quite charming access of confidence on the part of the birds. A wild duck this priug has a nest just behind Sheriug- ham hall, on the steep bank of an oak- grown hill behind the bouse of tho ireseut high' sheriff of Norfolk. This wood consists of very curiously grown ^aks, from young shoots which' had ieen cut down to the ground at some distant date, so that the trees are pol- ards, only pollards spring from the ground, Instead of having a crown at oine twelre or fourteen feet from the ground. lu the holes In these tree bottoms he wild clucks lay. But this partlcu- ar duck hud made her nest about four ind a half feet from the ground in a mass of twigs growing from the trunk, .'he nest was within a stone's throw f the back windows of the house and he bird was so tame that she would illow herself to be stroked as she sat » the eggs when visited by those chom she knew, but with three people, TVO of them strangers, looking at her, he was obviously nervous, for though he kept as still a» stone, she was luJte "trembling," a* birds do, with ft almost invisible motion of the —"-—pjk Thege — blackish-brown, „ With.

Is a Popular Orator and All Should Be Sure to Hear Him—Dates ft>r Other Speakers. Algona will be headquarters for the republicans of the Tenth district a week from Saturday, Oct. 7. At that time Congressman R. G. Cousins, who has never spoken in the county and who is easily one of the greatest political orators of the United States, will be here. The meeting was arranged for at the conference of Tenth district lommltteemen held at Port Dodge last Thursday, at which State Chairman H, " Weaver was present. The reports from all parts of the Tenth show the republicans in line, with lots of enthusiasm for a winning campaign. Other opening meetings are announced as follows, all for Saturday, Dot. 7i At Mt. Pleasant, Congressman J. P. Dolliver. At Marion, Senator Wm. B. Allison. Waterloo, Congressman D. B. Henderson. At Indlanola, Congressman J. A. T. Hull. At Jefferson, Gov. L. M. Shaw. John H. Ward at Home. Wesley News: John H. Ward, our present mayor, whose name appears at ' o head of the county ticket as noml-. nee for county treasurer this fall, is much pleased over the prospects and his friends see nothing but a clear field ihead and predict his election this fall. Not only is he gaining favorably on the •epublican side, but many prominent democrats are going to support him ind even use their influence. One democrat who has voted nothing but his ticket straight for the past 12 years, pledged himself to stay by the Wesley nan. Mr. Ward's 12 years' residence n Wesley and 30 in the county has brought him nothing if not.friends, ind as this Is his first effort for a county office he will have the hearty co-operation of those who know him. A Courageous Newspaper. The Corwith Hustler refuses to endorse the bolt of its townsman, E. L. Stilson, It takes nerve for a local paper to do this, and the Hustler is to be commended. The Hustler says: "The Hustler is unalterably opposed to bolt- ng any of the republican nominees, .hereby giving aid In the election of. a democrat. It believes that the place to settle party quarrels is within the mrty, not by an independent move." All HI ich t nt Bancroft. Register: Gardner Cowles was up ast Friday greeting friends and seeing fall was harmony within the republi- san fold. Needless to add he found it even so. Political Notes. Gov. Shaw speaks at Emmetsburg Oct. 4. Congressman Dolliver will speak all aver the state, and put in full time. The Courier Is sick already of the attempt to beat the republican ticket •>n the claim that the American citizen s not competent to hold county office. The Courier is sick also of the attempt o run two men and call it a whole ioket. Things are not going right with tho Courier this fall. A Gay Deceiver. The Wesley News tells a story about Dentist Smith, who flitted into Algona nd stayed about a week and whose ign still adorns the Ferguson-Hoxie block: Several of the young ladles who have wasted so many evening hours with Dentist Smith have been y reticent the past two weeks, since hey learned of his marriage to a Ch'i- ago lady. On April 4 he graduated ind according to his cards sent out last veek was married two days latter. He tept mum about this when he came >ack from Chicago a few days later ind continued to renew acquaintance ind spend bis evenings the same as before his marriage. Perhaps this olves the question why he did not lo- ate in Wesley as he advertised to do. A Slow Train.
