He was acquitted. . It has been remarked that if we could ' have a good, big rain Friday, in place •of the circus, it would be money saved and money made for the people of Kos- -suth. It is now the talk'that Col. Sessions will make his wedding excursion to Denver with the Republican Club Con, venton. That, would indeed be romantic. The Fourth Regiment, I. N. G., will have its annual encampment at bpen- cer this year, beginning August llth. Company F. will make timely preparation for the occasion. , Friday's republican convention will have so much business to attend to thatlit will be necessary to meet promptly on time and work hard to avoid a conflict with the circus.

The County Supervisors did a very proper thing when they ordered that board walk from the southeast corner of the court house square to the court house. Heretofore it has been a serious question whether'twere better to trudge around to the front walk or "to run the gauntlet Of Matt Osterbouer with his "keep off the grass" club. Rev. O. A. Stevens preached at the Baptist church Sunday morning and evenin'g, and so well pleased were the members of the church that they ex- .tended him a call to become their pastor, which he accepted, The new pastor is a graduate of Chicago Theological Seminary.

There was an unusually large attendance at the Social Union meeting Friday evening, and the program was one of more than usual interest. The paper by Miss Cramer on Kindergarten history x and that of Miss Coan on the history of Ornamentation elicited great interest, and the children's chorus came in well with Miss Cramer's theme Mr. Ryan's address on oratory combined profundity and humor and was much appreciated by the audience. The German song, by Julius Chrischil- les, was enjoyed by all, though some were doubtful as to its' sentiment. Chas. Cdhenour will be the program committee for three months to come. The Fort Dodge Messenger says that a gang of about fifteen pick pockets are following the Ringlirig Brothers' show and the Singling Bros, make it a part of their business to carry their own detective force and protect the public. One of these detectives shot at a supposed pickpocket at- Fort Dodge last week, and got his man in jail, but the detective was fine.d $25 for shooting without authority, while the pickpocket got off without punishment because the lady whose pocket was picked could not identify him, There never was a circus, big or little, that traveled without its quota of thieves, gamblers and thugs, and those who want to see the show should guard against them, And those greenies who are inclined to stake money on games run by the professional gamblers who follow the qircus should be put under an able bodied guardian, for the day, , PERSONAL NOTES, .

This towering beast is over eighteen feet high, and is undoubtedly the tallest animal that lives. Another rare wild beast embraced in Singling Brothers' menagerie is the gigantic four-ton hippopotamus, the heaviest beast in captivity and the only genuine blood-exuding behemoth now in this country. Ponderous and unwieldy as he is, the great hippopotamus is an intelligent brue, capable of instruction, and many of the tricks he performs at the command of his keeper, are astounding. The giraffe and hippopotamus are,however, only two of the many features for which this grand zoological display is noted. Of surpassing interest because of its rarity is a monster bi-horned gnu. A pair of horned horses also attract unlimited attention. Then there are pretty, striped zebras; sacred cattle; llamas of a dozen species, ferocious lions and tigers, leopards, hyenas, kangaroos from Australia, baby lions, a drove of camels, two big herds of quadrille-dancing and performing elephants, two baby elephants, and scores of other curious creatures. The mammoth dens and cages used to exhibit Ringling Brothers' menagerie are the largest, hahdso'mest and most beautifully decorated of any circus in the world, and those who have seen them this season are unqualified in their expressions of admiration. ,NORMAL SCHOOL NOTES. Taylor's. Several Normal School people drove to LuVerne last Friday night to attend the high school commencement. They were entertained in elegant style and report an excellent time. * Professors Johnson and Lilly with Surveyor Tellier go to Mason City next Friday night as delegates to the Y. M. C. A. convention. They will return .Monday morning. The reports for the Normal Summer School are favorable.

Johnson received two letters from managers of commercial schools last week, asking for teachers of penmanship and book-keeping. He thinks they can be supplied from the present commercial class at the Normal. There are always positions for those who are ready to fill them.
