The ladies of the Outlook had a meeting Sunday afternoon for bible study. The bill for the town pump has been received. The pump was shipped the 25th, and is expected today. There wa» a very slight shower Monday night, but there was little trace of •it to be seen next morning. A grand new piano with Geo, C. Call's name on the box was to be seen at the depot the first of the week. j Sheriff Samson reports the jail entirely empty. The latest occupant was Kirby, who was sent over from Wesley to serve out a $10 fine. Prof. Chaffee was so well pleased with Ellsworth College that he and his brother Will, haye bought a half inter• est in the institution.

Listo! advertised letters fot week ending July 80, 1894: Mr. L. E. Alexander, Mf. Charles Bragg, Mr. Gqbeft $> Butes, Mr. A. W. Campbell, Miss Emtaa C. Erickson, Mr. C. 0.

The oldest inhabitant was dumb. He had never "met up" with any such wind in the last hundred years. It was awful in its scorching and frying effect. The week has been as trying as any of the summer, A few minutes of ram fell here Monday night, however. In Lotts Creek, it is reported, it rained heavily for several hours. W. L. Barton was arrested last week for assault, on complaint of, "Hank" Stebbins, and fined the regulation $10 and costs! There was a difference of opinion between the men on some serious question, which Barton accentuated by giving his antagonist a hard whack on the fingers. The latter made a probably involuntary movement of his- hand behind bis back, when Barton, supposing he was going for bin hip pocket. turned »nd ran, yelling, "Don't shoot!" Mr. Stebbins thought It was a case for His Honor, Justice Taylor, and the sequel was as above' stated. Bev. Byrnes, a Humboldt Unitarian preacher, held forth at the Congregational church Sunday morning and evening, proclaiming the religion of "cutchaw." He delivered a lecture Monday evening on Wendell Phillips; which W&B listened to by a small audience. Bev. Byrnes is 1 a young man of considerable ability as a speaker. He was the guest of Mrs. Mann, of Irvington, during his stay. We give in an-r other column a letter from one of his auditors in which it is suggested that he is preaching a new kind of Unitarianism. The "Lesley Beporter tells how a couple of plasterers got a jag on and made a disturbance which required the presence of City Marshal Cosgrove to quell. The men were taken before Justice Robinson, who fined them $10 each and costs, which one of them, Kirby by name; failing to pay, he was shipped to this place and jailed. The Eeporter says that "the day is past in Wesley when parties think because they are filled up on bad whisky they can. run the town to suit themselves. Marshal Cosgrove' is to be 'commended *for hi^ efforts to maintain law and order." > We bear the name of the Hon. j| , J. Wilson mentioned as a not impossible candidate for congress. The convention does not come off 'until, the 10th instant and the Courier will have plenty of time to give Mri Wilson the proper booming preparatory thereto, Mr. Wilson is one of the wheel-horses of the democratic party in Kossuth county and in the district, and he is probably as strong in the party faith as any man who could be found in thirteen counties. A consistent democrat before, through and since the war, it would seem as, though the laurels would become his brow. Let us get Mr. Wilson nominated by all means. It was stated in a brief local a short time ago that Mrs. Alfred Richmond was in an asylum in California. Mrs, W. H. Conner received a letrer this week from a sister of Mrs, B. She writes that her trouble came on -in the form of intense home sickness for which she chided and blamed herself and tried to, throw it off. Her case comes under the head of Melancholia, which i@ said to be one of the hardest to cure, Her trouble was not brought pn by being thrown from the carriage as she was entirely herself when she went to California in October, The last news from her was nQt incourag- ing, She continues to lose flesh all the time, Sheriff Samson went up to Qwaton- na last week to locate the team of hors' es belonging to 1 3ST. J. Skinner, that J, B, Brown drove QUJ o| the county on bis trip, into -Minnesota, grown had sold them to a liveryman in Qwatonna for $30, and the liveryman declined to, give them up without propf, so iM,r,. Skinner was, telegraphed fpr and went up and gave the necessary bondiji The liveryman wanted a few days to get one pf the hprse§ which be iad traded off, and 59 If. 1 was Arranged tp sepd up fp$ them this w eek. Probably: Henry wrton will go up there today to reclaim. the team, The Sbwiw had,s woid that Brown, wh9, ( b&8,,Jwe» jep ing a thirty day's wMpss. poopfl eg atone on the streets of Minneapolis, was tp'go free today, bpt no stepg m m taken to,boJd him for string £b& boja* fisf^dbsef eQttrse.jioea frees , ; ; There w&s the ,wjpJ wldg aifwanga of ppinie» ^m t last weefe m ta the, — of Mr, UMU Ct U1TAUVU nlAVtJVi.V V\f M, MJkflfeV*. W*. VM,T and Dfltidaon ef Bitfti*, who in any (ft- dinaty situation would have tece ved from KosSUth aa loyal ft support as tbat accorded bttneif own counties. The terrible exfoet ieffde ,6f Belle Plains, Iota, and Phillips, Wisconsin, which were completely wiped out by fife last week) ought to be a timely warning to Algona and to .every otbfcr town to keep vigilant watch after every outbreak, however small, and to be at any moment prepared to fight fire. It does seem as though we had got almost tothi point of spontaneous combustion. At Phillips the town was swept by what wad described as a cyclone of flame. The very air seemed to be ablafce. Some fourteen lives were lost in that town, so swift was the rush of the fire fiend. There should be a close watch while the conditions are so favorable to destructive fires, and when a fire once started is so likely to sweep the whole town. The School board have received not* ice from Miss Ella M. Coan of her decision to decline a re-election as teach' er of drawing in the public school, it being her intention to attend the Pratt Institute, of Brooklyn, New York, and resume her art studies. Miss Coan has been a successful and satisfactory teacher, and her resignation Will be accepted with regret. Ho meeting of the directors has so far been held, but it has been decided to give the place mado vacant to Miss Louise McCoy. Formal action will be taken by the board at its first meeting, and in the meantime Miss McCoy has been advised of the unanimous desire of the board to give her the place, which she has decided to accept. A better choice could not have been made. Miss McCoy will bring enthusiasm as well as good training and .experience to the work and will succeed in Algona as he has elsewhere. The most exciting runaway we haye had in Algona for years occurred Saturday afternoon. It called together all the people within two or three blocks, and once it looked very like a tragedy. Clayton Hutchins' horse and surrey were standing near the walk just south of the State Bank building, and seated in the carriage were Mrs. Hutchins and three children, the horse being headed to the east, when Gilmore's delivery team and wagon came tearing down the street and struck the Hutchins horse with full force, one going one side and the other the other side, and in a twinkling all three horses were down in a tangle and the Hutcbins carriage had been overturned, The occupants were for a moment caught in the carriage top but were speedily extricated by the bystanders, and no one was injured except one of the boys, who got a slight scalp wound. Strange to say, neither of the horses was killed, though one of Gilmore's was punched in the side. It was a head end collision, and the chances were for a more serious outcome. James Taylor .and John .Goeders arrived home Saturday night from their extended Dakota trip,,,with browned faces and generally improved physical condition. They .drove out there in a comfortable rig .and visited the main towns in central South Dakota. Mr. Taylor located his, halt section farm, which he bad previously taken in on a trade and traded for more in the vicip r 1ty.'-"Mr. Goeders'--also made 1 -invest- ments-iri Dakota land. It seems that buying land out there is something unknown—everybody trades. The country around Woonsocket suited our travelers best. That is the, region of artesian wells.i The artesian well is a com- •plete answer to the objection most frequently entered against the Dakotas, for with an artesian well, irrigation is entirely practicable, and with irrigation good crops are assured. But this resource is not available everywhere, and where it can be had it costs heavily. The crops in the region traversed are hopelessly dried up, more so than here, except in favored sections. ALGONA'S GREAT GAME. Hurt and Bancroft to Play Ball in Algona next Tuesday for a Purse 'of $xoo. Messrs. Sheridan and Shaefler, representing the Bancroft and Burt clubs, respectively, were in Algona yesterday and completed arrangements for a game of ball between their' two clubs for a purse of $100, at the Pair Ground here next Tuesday. The money is deposited and the arrangements all made. Bancroft defeated Burt twice last week in very close games and -'it is proposed to definitely settle the question as to which is the better club, at this game, The Algona boys who aaw the game at -Burt laat Friday, say that Mb clubs play splendid ball < and the game will undoubtedly be the best Algona has seen in years. .Admission will be .charged and the game will be called about four o'clock, ,Ther,e will doubtless be large crowds down frem Bqrt and Bancroft, as the two\tpwns are staking tbejr repnta- tion for ball -playing on the jegult °* this, game. , •< • PERSONAL/ NOTES, Mrs. H, J, Edens and children, and Mrs, John Sbadle, armed frpm Sioux City last night, \ f, B.

The an- B^tificement of the efr'-nt will occasion leas surprise than Some others IK that line have done. The congratulations gs$8nded will be many and sincere. Thd groom is the head of the lumber firm of J. A. Hamilton & Co., one of the; inost enterprising, progressive and successful business houses in Algona. and personally one of our most genial popular young men, and the bride 10 the daughter of Mr- and Mrs. T. W. Gilbert. She has done good work for sditte j ears in the school room, teaching theyoung|idea,and is a general favdrlte. Mr. Hamilton may well count himself fortunate in winning such amatriinon* ial prize. The young couple will at once take possession of a pretty and cosy residence on Hall street, which was erected early in the season by Mr. D« H. flutchitts for their use. and Which has been handsomely furnished. WEATHER AND CROPS. THE STATE AT LAKGE. • The past week has been the worst of the season . The daily temperature averaged seven degrees above the normal. On the 26th the temperature ranged from 100 degrees to 107 degrees, with winds 20 to 85 miles an hour— the severest in its effects upon vegetation ever known in Iowa. Light showers are reported along the eastern border, and at a few localities in the interior, affording temporary relief in checking the process of desiccation. • Variable reports are received as to .the effects of the drouth and hot winds upon corn. In the central and southern districts the damage is much greater than in the northern belt. The consensus of opinion seems to be that about one-fourth of the acreage planted will yield no corn and but little fodder. With speedy and substantial relief the State at large may possibly harvest one half an average crop. But every day's continuance of present conditions will lower the possibilities and reduce the output. i Pastures are dry, and feeding stock is now general. Late sown millet has not; sprouted. Potatoes and flax are greatly damaged. > /.Threshing returns show much better yield of rye, Wheat, oats, and barley than was expected. FROM THE TREE MAN.
