He said he thought the strike might prevent its delivery, so he came along himself to make sure <jf the job, This Is no joke. Lawyer S. M. Elwood, of Sac City, who a good many years ago visited Algona republicans as a candidate for a judgeship in the old fourteenth district, Was nominated to that position by the 16th district judicial convention on the 2nd instant. "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again," as the old reader taught us. On all hands are signs of retrenchment on the part of the railroad companies. Every man that could be spared, at any point, has been laid off. R. A. Palmer, the freight agent at the Northwestern, is having a vacation. He took the place of Lieutenant Chubb in the Algona State Bank during the latters absence at Sioux City. Miss DJnger, of Bancroft, the infatuated young lady who ran off a few weeks ago with J. R. Brown, the notorious pugilist and insurance man, has been induced to return .to her home. The couple stayed several weeks at hotels in St. Paul and StilhV}>ter, Brown invariably skipping his board bills. This is a sad case, and it ought to be a warning to young girls to beware of worthless and vicous characters like Brown. The Courier is responsible for tin's item of gossip: "And now the report comes that Miss Hepburn, of Des Moines, the young lady that accompanied Bro. Inghamon the southern editorial trip last summer, went with that gentleman again last week to the meeting of the National Press Association at Asbury Park. If Harvej" doesn't marry that young lady we shall lose confidence in him." The editor of the Bancroft Register, who has beenconsumed with anxiety for the reputation of Kossuth County, is assured that Company F were not "disarmed by the strikers and driven out of of town." If we might judge from the graveyard quiet that prevailed about the yards after Co.F. marched in, the strikers were driven out of town, but the fact is they didn't, give the boys the chance to drive them out. The grading of Park Avenue is now practically complete with the exception of the approaches to the railroad, which will be filled with dirt from the high railroad grade. The work of pile "driving and excavating for the Milwaukee bridge is well begun, the bridge men being under the direction of H. Forberg. When Park Avenue is open it willjbe found to afford a very easy access to the town from the north and a very pleasant carnage drive to the people of the town. Judge Weaver and wife and four daughters called at the camp of Company F at Sioux City, and renewed their acquaintance with members of the company. A. F. Call visited the boys and provided them with the best cigars going. Col. S. S; Sessions, who was in the city on his bridal tour, (ailed and received the congratulations of the company and furnished them with cigars. Altogether the boys were treated royally by the Algona people in Sioux City. There was not a little excitement Thursday afternoon when the Chicago dailies came in with the news that a lieutenant of Co. F was hit on the head with a coupling pin the day previous at Sioux City and badly hurt. The telegrams received here from the boys said nothing about any accident, and the rumor was soon discredited, It appears that all there was of the story was that a member of the Cherokee Company, which was close to Co, F, was hit in the face by a big fire cracker. Geo. W. Hanna and wife and, Phil. Hanna and wife drove up Saturday from LuVerne, The first named had a felicitous interchange of views with Supervisor Chubb such as would lead the disinterested observer to believe that the differences between' the two in relation to the policy of internal improvements were not of the serious and irresonciiable nature that one would -conclude from the number of columns it has taken to tell about them, Jt has been a dry summer, and the pursuit of the frisky steer by-the one and two per cent loans by the other jbas left them time for tUe cultivation of-a literary style, which they have voluminously improved, Ex-Consul &anna received many warm greetings from his Algoaa of trie ftftif comes a little late, owing to & mischance, but its congratulations ar« none the teas hearty. Do aet f of get the entertainment next Tuesday night at the M. E. Church given by little Ada Heist, the ten yea*- old elocutionist.

Bits of staircase lead abruptly into blank walls, passages end suddenly in the high air, Without window-railing or parapet. Lonely balconies lead around dizzy dorflers to dismal watch-turrets whence a human voice could hardly find its way to the halls within, The most Undaunted explorers of the Society for Psychical Research might learn what gooseflesh means in such a place as this. > (Mfisffti tittftiei tt. fttttttfl.
