Next Tuesday is the opening day of the Normal summer school. The rain of Saturday was general throughout Iowa. There were millions in it to the farmers of the staie. The Chapel room at the Normal is nndergoing some changes. A rostrum and a teacher's desk are being put in. The Ep worth League will give an ice cream social at the home of W. C. Danson on Friday evening. Everybody is invited. The Ladies' Aid Society of the M. E. church will serve supper Thursday evening in the Galbraith building on State Street. •The Annual election of officers of the M. E. Home Missionary society will occur at,the residence of Mrs. JBagnell, Thursday at 2:30 p. m. ' ' ;Kossuth"courity "will be represented at the Denver convention by four delegates:' B. W. Haggard, Geo. E.Boyle, and Mr. and Mrs. Sessions. The Anderson Bakery, Bircher's old stand, seems to be doing a large business and giving the best of satisfaction. Many compliments are to this effect. ' Buffalo Center had a fire Sunday night which destroyed a large part of that new town. The loss reported is upwards of $20,000, with but $7,500 insurance. The town is ambitious and will rebuild at once. Geo. Johnson has opened a steam laundry one door east of Ed Gilmore's. Algona people who have been sending their laundry work to Minneapolis or Des -Moines should give this home enterprise their patronage. "WmvL, Bobn and Miss Clara Miller Secured a marriage license Monday, The latter is the daughter of Fred Miller, of Plum Creek township, and the groom is a prosperous farmer residing a few miles north of town. , The premium list is out for the twenty-second' annual exhibit of the Kossuth County Fair, which is to take place Sept. 19, 20, and 21 on the grounds at Algona. The Jist is a product of the Courier office and is a very neat specimen of typographical work, N, J.' Skinner had an addition to.his Jist of fine horses during the week, one - of the animals being Mazeppa, a trotter (row Corning, Iowa, and the other Ben H, Wilkes, a pacer from Ipswich, Dakota. Mr, Skinner has been putting some of his horses into .Dakota land of late, Frank Gilbert, sop of TUos. CH»ert, had $§ misfortune to injure one of bis are invited whether members ot not. An ertof occurred in the announcement last week, which made the picnic come off July 2, whereas June 21 is the correct date. M. E. Schleieher has accepted a position with the Boone Business College as teachet of book-keeping, shot t hand atid penmanship. He takes chatge of his work July 1st, Ml-. Schleichei- is a graduate of the Commercial depattinent of the Northern Iowa Normal .School and we ate sure he will succeed, Wilbur Quick was attested Monday night for disorderly conduct attd brought befote Justice Clatke, tt was about tett o'clock, and his Honor, after filing the information, postponed the heating until tiext morning. Quick neglected to show up and it is supposed that he skipped, The BEPVSUOAJT regretted the incident very much, as Quick had agreed to help the office out of a rush of work next day, Ringling Bros,' circus had the right of way in Algona last Friday, ati<l a great day it inade of it, This circus is the best that ever exhibited in Algo* na, and so well established is its reputation with the people of this place that a great crowd ia sure to Witness its exhibitions. There was one of Al« gona's biggest crowds out, but it was a quiet and orderly crowd, There was a notable absence of fakers, gamblers, and pick-pockets. The long wished for rain came Sat* urday, and so gently did it descend at first thatthosa who watched jit hardly dared to hope that it would make much of a shower. But it kept on, coming faster and more of it, and before it ceased the ground was well soaked. Great good was done to the crops, and a large harvest, especially of corn, is assured. Now that the drouth has been broken, there is room to hope for an abundance of moisture from this on. The Algona Commercial Exchange will hold its annual election of officers Saturday night, at the office of Hay & Bice. All members of the Exchange and all who are interested in its_objects are requested to be present. This organization has it within its power to do much for the promotion of the prosperity of the city, and it behooves every business man to take a lively interest in it and give it his heartiest support. The Whittemore Champion appears to have the very erroneous impression that the Algona band has assumed the prerogative of deciding who shall and who shall not be permitted to live in Algona, for it says:. Prof. Bartlett, leader of the Algona Band, engaged in a slugging match with one of his pupils and was arrested and fined $13.50, after which the boya gaye him peremptory notice to leave town, which he did. The Professor was in town as late as when we read this notice. A Bancroft school boy expresses the conviction. that "nothing good -can come from that which is evil in its nature or tendencies," and that premise, he thinks, settles it for the newspapers. In concluding an oration on "Journalism" he asks: "Is it time for another crusade, a crusade of righteous indignation against the newspaper?" Yes, Sonny, it is time if you feel that way, but you will have to get the newspapers to help you or your crusade never will be heard of, and of;course then- it won't be a crusade. Mrs. S. B. Gibson, of Cresco township, died at her home at one o'clock Tuesday morning, after a long illness, from heart disease and dropsy. Brief services were held at the house yesterday and then the remains were taken to Irvington and started for Creston,Iowa, Miss Bamsey and Frank Bamsey, her sister and brother, and her little son Howard, making the sad funeral party. Mrs. Gibson was the widow of J. B. Gibson, who died here some years ago, also of heart disease, and who was taken to Creston for burial, She would have been : 38 years old today, had she lived. She was a bright woman intellectually, and was held in high estima- SOLD MORTGAGED PROPERTY joe Stewart tSaptuf ed at Mason City 6ft that Too Corrirnon Charge,— Why fhis . and Wood/poisoning set in wasteargd that by? band/ would tave tQ go, but'Drs.

Mr. and Mrs, T. H. Lantry received a letter, Monday, from their son Harry of Los Angelos, confirming the report of his wife's death, received by wire last week.' The deceased had been sick but a couple of weeks, and her death was unexpected, She had been troubled with abscesses, one on each side. A surgical operation was performed a few'days prior to her decease, but she had seemingly recovered from its effects, Subsequently she was taken suddenly worse and'died in. 36 hours. Mr. and Mrs..Lantry had been married three years. The body was taken to San Diego for interment, the funeral occuring one week ago last Saturday. Sheriff Sajnson, assisted by Marshal Daily and special policeman Tuttle went through the Schmidt billiard halli Alderman's old stand, between 11 and 42, circus day, witn a search warrant, and captured a dray load of Jackson's. "Health Restorer," .This stuff is a been "gulled" and. always found to be beer, It wa,s locked .up, and when the hearing was called SchroWt owned TO that it was beer, Justice Clarke fined him iioo and costs, making it cost Schmidt $181, and ordered the beey, of which there were fifteen, eases, destroyed. This was the- highest fine i» luitice court for suob an offense for but ' Sheriff Satnsoii went to Mason City Thursday, and attested Joe Stewaiton a charge of selling mortgaged property and lodged hiffl in" jail. His hearing comes the tattet part of this week. Stewart was arrested oil a like charge some time agd and his two sons, who are conductors btt the Milwaukee roadj paid up for him and secuted his re* lease. His attest is for another of* fense, and it appears that thete ate tnottgages of his put amounting to $1,* 200 to 1,400 fot Which he has nothing to show, the chattels given as security haying been disposed of, so that his is liable to attest and punishment on nti* inet otis counts, His sons looked up the tecotd against him when they got him out of his first sctape, and they then gave up the job as a hopeless one and declared that they could not be drawn on in the future* This chatge of selling mortgaged property is bobbing up With great frequency of late, What it means we leave for others to guess Thejoffense is committed with a reck lessness which may imply a lack of ap preciation of moral guilt in the connection. Is it possible that the "cattle" mortgage business has been conducted in such a high handed manner and with so slight regard for fairness and decency that it has generated into a "skin game" on both sides? If so it must be apparent that in spite of occasional losses the "cattle" leaner has the advantage andis going to keep it. Stewart's home is at Ledyard, but since his first incarceration he has not stayed there, and he was only located after long inquiry. PERSONAL NOTES. Mrs. A. A.
