Harper's Weekly of Oct. 18 devotes a page to the cyclone which swept over Northein Iowa and Minnesota on the night of Sept. 21st. Among the views given are tWo supplied by Algona artists, one showing the remains of the Schenck school house and the other the wreckage of Geo Boeyers' house. The other four views are from the town, of Le Boy, Minnesota. Supervisor Chubb reports that the necessities of the cyclone belt have been attended to in ihe main. Some of the cycloned are getting into their new houses, however; aud will need furniture. There is still call for assistance such as ^neighbors can give, and the ladies do not feel that they are at the end of their work. Many cases calling for sympathy are reported by the latter. , ' The State Grange last week honored itself by the re-election of M. De L Parsons of this pluce to the position of State;Lecturer. Mr. Parsons is a man of ability and standing and is highly inspected by everybody. A.B. Judson, of Silver City, was elected Master. Algona has:continuousl,y held an influential position in the State Grange, as it was entitled to do by virtue of the success of Algona Grange. . Mrs. Swan Peterson was yesterday brought down to Algona. to her. /new horn?.' She was barely able to be moved. The physicians have had difficulty in transplanting skin from the arm to the bare surfaces of the forehead. The H. P; Larson family, who took the Peterson familv in on the night of the storm and who have given Mrs. Peterson every .care since then, are deserving of great credit for their generous hospitality. The populist countv convention organized Friday with B. E. Davison for chairman, and G. V. Davis, secretary Speechps were made by J. E. Blackford, Mr. Heathershaw and others crit- icising the democratic and republican parties indiscriminately. The convention made no nominations, but indorsed Bandall for recorder, Hofius for auditor, Crose for, clerk, Thompson for attorney, ana Barton and Jacobson for supervisors, There were only a few persons present. The Jones & Stacy mill is getting its new machinery adjusted and in running order but is not in regular operation as* yet, The Wilson mill 'has got its machinery, and. a gang of men are at work putting it in place. When our mills 1 get to running again we shall have practically a new industry in Algona, and the product of the mills will probably be equal to the best flour made. The machinery will be new ana wjth the latest improvements, and , capable of turning out ipore than ^he county can;us.e, , . • Bev/A,.V, GorreU begins a -series of lectures on the Apostle's Creed, Friday evejning of this week, which will be of interest to all bible students, #e es* UydQVites the^yowng people of Al-^ to'-attend tb^se'lectures, and '" nottb'e"sUglite8t objection to-anyone takingnotes,'.ol-wMt be says,'if they phoose to'49'so- These.

The ttarosMtiAtt enjoyed a visit witll Mr. J s 0. Baker the pobtilist ean< didale for congress, While he was in town Monday* The radical political differences that have always existed between the Writer ahd Mr. Baker have hot been allowed to in the least qualify'the respect he has ever felt for him as a ffian Who believes sincerely in the principles add politics he advocates. It is of course not a bit single lar that so many populists and so many democrats, for that matter, are mong the best people living, it makes us believe that in the economy of things it was not expected nor intended that we all think alike nor vote the same ticket. A ; deal which had been in contemplation for some months has just been completed, by which Melzar Haggard and Gus Peek become the owners of the abstract, collection and land business of Jones & Smith. Possession will be given November first, when it is ex- B Kited that Mr. Smith will remove to es Moiues and enter into partnership with Mr. Jones, who has a business established in that city. There is every reason to anticipate that the new proprietors, who have enjoyed the advantages of splendid business training and are bright and active young men. will make a decided success of the business. Mr. Peek has a special advantage in having been a clerk in the office for some time. As noted last week, there have been rumors abroad of the sale of stock by cyclone victims at ruinous prices. We do not know bow much of this was done, but we have located one transaction definitely where a farmer who had everything blown away and whose well was filled up With dirt thrown in by the wind sold a lot of good heavy hogs for $2 a bead and nice fat ducks for 10c. apiece.. The seller was half crazed with the situation be was in and suffering from injuries inflicted by the cyclone, and the buyer took advantage of bis opportunity and committed the robbery, for that is what we call it. A. disaster like the recent cyclone seems to affect different persons differently. Some have been putting in their time giving assistance to the unfortunates, and oth • era have been prowling around the scenes of desolation and death in search of plunder. The guilty party in this case was not a blue sky man, nor a resident of Algona. The democratic county convention held last Wednesday in this place was slimly attended. Only a little more than half of the precincts in the county were represented, and the number of delegates reported was but little more than half th.e number in the republican convention, which bad 105 delegates from 31 precincts out of the 32 in the county. To be exact, there were 19 precincts represented bj; 56 delegates, according' to the Courier's report'. '. But '.the bosses, bad/ matters Well Inland 'and the ticket'put up w; s •<tsily"dictated, especially in View 01 the fact that there was no competition for the nominations at the disposal of the convention, aud everything went by acclamation. The candidates are as follows: P. E. Johnson, of German Valley, for recorder: J. B. Hofius, of Union, for auditor; Guy M. Butts, of Wesley, for clerk; 0. C. Thompson, of Bancroft, for county attorney, and Silas Lloupe of Lotts Creek and Albert Jacobson, of Seneca, for supervisors. The best known of these nominees is Mr. Hofius, who beld the auditor's office from Jan. 1, 1890,, to Jan. 1, 1893. The term of office to which he was elected was for twQ years, but the legislature extended the terms of all incumbents of the office at that time to three years, with the purpose of having the terms of treasurer and auditor expire in different years thereafter, Mr. Hofius held the position for three years 'and was a candidate for re-election, but was defeated by C. M. Doxsee. Don't miss Taylor's cloak sale Oct. 20. * \ )H • IBI III L " '"•••" "i PERSONAL MENTION, Wra, (Spencer, one of the clerks of the U. S,* Senate, is visiting his brother, Col.

GEN.

Gen. Beeson spoke for au hour and a half, and his speech Was number one and aroused great enthusiasm. Gen. Beesou said it was one of his best meetings this fall, aud it could not have been much better. JUDGE QUARTON, That's what it is now.
