A bouncing boy was born to Mr. and Mrs. Henry Patterson of the south side, Saturday,. and congratulations have been more profuse than usual. A. W. Sterzback, who has been hav- ine a very uncomfortable time with one of his hands for the past month, is encouraged by signs of improvement, It don't hurt so much, The County Fair opens today with prospects for the most sucessful exhibition ever made by the society.

The frost last week killed &1?OBlM *.«.**. ° v -™-^ ^ e £ ? jds, buj jeft An instance of tbe way weed seeds are transported over long distances, is told by D. 11. Setchell. He says there is a farm near Whittemore that has a mullen patch, and its coming is clearly traced to an importation of a herd of sheep from New York, The seed came in the fleeces of wool. The REPUBLICAN this week adds four pages to its regular edition as a County Fair Supplement. We had to have extra'space to accommodate a big run. of advertising, and besides that, we like to celebrate fair week by matching the big pumpkins and. the horses and cattle with a booming big paper. She race program at the fair comes tomorrow and next day. The way folks are built the horse race draws the crowd—not altogether a Sunday s'chool crowd, perhaps, but always a big one. The bicycle races will be an attraction this season, second to no others. The human race, sifter all, is the most interesting to the most of us. We present, this week, a letter from Mayor A. A, Call containing valuable suggestions in regard to tbebest means of preserving government corners. It will be read with interest by all land owners. It might be a good thing tor the county board to take some action looking to the prevention of future trouble in the matter of boundaries. The Algona delegates in yesterday's republican convention were: First ward, Eugene Tellier, John G. Smith, A. A. Brunson, Geo. Williams; second, T. H. Conner, Chas. Nolle, J. W.- Robinson, M. B.

Parish &Frise have a half page ad in this issue, calling special attention to stoves and ranges, especially the Majestic Steel range,, probably the most famous range on the market. A number of these ranges are now in use in Algona, one of them in the editor's kitchen, and they are an unqualified success. The days of tbe old- fashioned stove are numbered. The St. Thomas Sunday school had a most enjoyable picnic at the place of C.L.Lund Saturday. The children were entertained with a variety of amusements, among them a foot race between the Rector and W. L. Joslyn, while Lawyer Geo. E. Clarke' took numerous snap shots with- his Kodak for remembrances of the occasion. The refreshments included ice cream and cake, the first-named luxury being the treat of Mrs. C. L. Lund. Miss Cau-ie Durant "and her aunt, Mrs. Wooster, left for California Thursday, the news having come that Mrs. W. K. Vickroy was dying. The Vickroys, who were formerly well- known residents of this county, are located at Lakeport, Lake county, in the northern interior portion of the state. Mrs, Vickroy's ailment is cancer, and while it was possible she might live for stime time, her death at any time would be no surprise, The case against Joe Crose for cheating by false pretences was brought, be* fore tbe Ilumboldt county grand jury on complaint of tbe Renwick farmer who claims to have been cheated out of his span of handsome young Nor' man horses. The grand jury found an indictment against Grose answering tp the accusation, Gep, IJ, Clarke appeared for him and had the c^se, continued till the next term, the required bond being given a.nd Cvose accorded bjs liberty, ' ' *' >( ; Capt. Jeansonand wife, ontygl? Lake, have been in 'the ojty several days. The Captain's many -Algwa friends will be glad of the news that he has almpst fully recovered his robust health, though be still feels soms of bis long illness. The Woodward Theatre Company holds down tbe boards at Call's Opera House all this week. "Under the Bluck Elag" was played with strong realistic effect Monday night, and "Fighting Against Odds" was well put on last night. The usual Saturday tit'ternoqn matinee will doubtless attract a big crowd of little i'olks, Whose interest in the occasion will be 1 stimulated by a prize to be given to 1 the school child presenting at the door the longest ILt of words formed with the letters used to spell "Maud Mullet." There was a meeting of the Library Association Wednesday evening, when T. F. Cooke, Dr. McCoy, L. J. Rsiie, Mrs. C. A. Ingham and Mrs. Dr. Gar- geld were elected directors. Officers were elected, as follows: T. F. Cooke President, Dr. McCoy Vice President, L. J. Rice Treasurer, Miss Jordan Secretary and Librarian. The reading room is open every evening. The Chicago Daily Tribune is to be found there, and Harper's Weekly and Magazine and the Century are among the periodicals just subscribed for. C. D. Pettibone has kindiy supplied the REPUBLICAN with a complete record of the rainfall for the first, eight months of 1894. It .amounts to 11.83 inches. The usual annual rainfall for this locality, Mr. Pettibone says, is 38 to 42 inches, and of course we have more than two-thirds of it in. this first eight months. From these .data we conclude that we have had approximately from a quarter to a third of our usual'rainfall. The fact is mentioned just at this time, as it indicates something of the latest resources' of al soil capable of producing nearly 1 our average crop under such disadvantages. . The contractors, Nick Hubbard and W. B. Stevens, have been hard at work i since Monday morning/digging, the 1 trenches for the water mains. Mr. Hubbard is doing the work on the north side. The south side extension will be what was previously reported in the REPUBLICAN. It begins opposite the residence of J. E. Stacy and runs west to the Baptist church corner, then runs south two blocks to Dingley's corner, thence west to Mayor Call's, and thence north to State street. The north side extension is on Call street east to Cordingleys and'thence south and west to a connection with the State street mains at W. K. Ferguson's. The 25-cont circus advertised in the REPUBLICAN and drew about 200. Riugling's advertised in the other papers and had about 9.000. A word to the wise, etc. The above, from our esteemed south- side cotemporary, show* that it is troubled with a condition of mind as well as a theory. It has felt very sensitive on the question of circus advertising ever since last spring, when it .advertised a bankrupt concern. Tbe REPUBLICAN discovered its defunct condition just in time,to fire its ad and notify the public. Thea-esult was that though it bad big ads in both the other papers there was no circus crowd, and probably not a man was in from the country to see the show, When Ringling's advance man came to Algona be put a $15 ad in the REPUBLICAN and the same in the Courier, and gave a $18 ad to our esteemed cotemporary. Then when a show bad the effrontery to exhibit; in Algona and ignore its presence its poor judgement had to be exploited., It has been a long time since the writer hereof bad time to go tp a gSrcents^ow.and anyway we are satisfied to have had tb,e count ma$e by our esteemed potera- porary, who evidently was, drawn to it by th§ REPUBLICAN axj,bubour jpjpres* sjon is that everybody :who wanted to go to a. gS'C'ent show, after, witnessing the 25-gent parade, wa,s there, A word to the wise is, perhaps, sufficient, but evidently it js-not half epovigh to ex* the. feelings of oup -esteemed coat the etase of tbj quainted with each other, however, and both dropped into the bank to see about lixiug their political fences down there. George introduced them, and invited them to sit down, which they did, and the game of freeze-out began. Neither one cared to talk politics in the presence of the other, and "thar they sot," each one determined to stay-out the other, uhtil their 'bus had gone to the traiu, when finally one of them told the other if they wanted to go on that train they had better be going, and thev went. Next time you come boys, come one at a time and it will make it much pleasanter for both of you. E. E. SAYEKS, D. V.
