The brick work on the four-front block was begun yesterday morning. There were many Algona visitors to the Livermore campmeeting on Sun* day.

There were five thunder storms, it hailed twice, and there was a light frost on the 9th. The Milwaukee company will run a train to Clear Lake on Sunday to accommodate such as desires to attend the musical festival, which is now in progress. It looks u trifle ominous for town owners of horses and cows when wilil hay is selling on the streets in August at $5,00 a ton, which was yesterday's quotation. A missionary convention of Swedish Lutheran ministers is in progress in Algona, A number of able ministers of the denomination are here from abroad. Mayor Haggard thinks that those who write to him about violations of the gambling laws should sign their iiamee. That is not such an unreasonable thing to ask, either, The finishing work on Geo. 0, Call's office has been dono, and it is ono of the finest in this neighorhood, New furniture is to be put in before the owner shall call it complete.

M. Gardner threshed over o.OOO bushels of ouls from 40 acres, Kiviiu him over 75 bushels to the acre. John Swit/er got GO bushels of barley lo the acre. In facetious mood the LuVornc News says: Algomi now proposes to do Northern Iowa with a base ball learn 'with wheels/ It would seem an easy matter for Algona to do this as she is plentifully supplied with material, about every, other man in Algona 'has wheels.' Authentic reports arc to thu effect lliut Landlord Tc'inuuit caught a 111 pound pickerel in the river last week. It snatched tlio polo out of his hands, but Mr. Helmut jumped in and got a fresh hold and hung on till he landed his catch. The lish was oj feet long and is the biggest ever caught in this neighborhood. Word comes from E. 13. Butler's sylvan retreat in the wild woods of Minnesota that tho lish are biting with Kreat avidity. They like the bait and are not afraid of the hook. They neb to the front so fast that it makes Mr. Butler tired to pull them out and ho catches more every day than he can carry. The strain is such that he will come home next week. While drilling a well on his place, about three uniles northeast of Algona, last week, Leonard Holm struck a chalky deposit at a depth of 70 feet. It was soft on the top and the drill penetrated the strata to a depth of thirty feet, when the substance became too hard to drill and the well was given up, at a depth of 100 feet. What the deposit is is not known. It is perfectly white and is easily pulverizable, is line grained but gritty, it is tasteless. .A sample has been sent to Prof. Samuel Calvin, of the) Stale University for identification. Mr. Holm has a well on the place G5 feet in depth, and no such formation was encountered in sinking it, so it is not believed that the find is more than a pocket. ;'• The .REPUBLICAN'S forecast of the 'democratic county convention, held here last Wednesday, was so trite to life that little needs to he added but the names of the delegates to the state convention, which are Phil. Dorweiler, J.J. Wilson, J.J. Eyan, J. II. Gortner, C. L. Lund, Thos. McGovern, M. Eahm, Prank Weimer, Prank Pompe, Peter Christensen, Jas. Taylor, M. J. Keueflck. Jas. Sheridan, \V". P. Giddings,M. J. Walsh, V. Zoelle, C. V. Dunn, L. C. Smith. The county is en-, titled to nine delegates' but twice that number were elected, with power to cast half a vote each. J. W. Sullivan was re-elected county chairman. The precincts represented in the convention were the four wards of Algoua, Sherman, Whittenrre,Wesley, Prairie, Irvington, Burt, Cresco, Greenwood and Garfield. The Wesley Reporter has the following appreciative mention of the marriage of Mr. C. E. Jones and Miss Maud A. Smith, noted in these col- limns last week: The above happy event took place at the beautiful home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. John G. Smith, and was witnessed by only a few of the immediate relatives. The bride is one of Algona's best and most accomplished young ladies and has won not a little fame in musical circles throughout the state. Her amiable qualities are such that her friends are numerious and our Charles may well congratulate himself in securing such a charming bride, Mr. Jones has resided here for the past year, a-d as manager of the Bender Bfos, elevator,' has by his genial and gentlemanly bearing won the admiration and respect of all. The happy couple tookthe morning train for Sioux City and other points, but owing to pressing business that demands Mr. Jones' personal attention a more extended tour is deferred, consequently they will return by Monday and be at home to their friends in their cosy residence on Second street by Sept, 1st. The Reporter takes pleasure in extending hearty congratulations. FOUND DEATU IN A CISTERN.

Minkler, wife of Orange Minkler, committed suicidi? by drowning in the family cistern early Monday morning. She h;ul been homo from the Independence insane asylum only three clays, and having betrayed ;i desire to end her life she had been closely guarded, but she slipped u\v;iy from her bed while her husband slept, made her way out of a sitle door, went Lo the back of tho house and entered the kitchen door, which waa without a lock, and pulling up the trap door to the cistern, in which was six feet of water, she pushed her body through the round opening, two feet in diameter, and all was over. When tho tragedy was enacted cannot be known. The discovery of her escape was made just at daybreak, tiud she wa.s found almost at once. The warmth had not entirely gone out of Iier body when found, and she must have committed the rash act iu the early morning. Mrs. Minkler wastiikou to Independence April third, her symptoms being those of pronounced melancholia. At the asylum she was despondent and fretful, and till hope of her recovery was abandoned. SJie was anxious to return home and it was thought safe to gratify her wish. Mr. Minkler arriyed home with her on Tuesday preceding her suicide. She was anxious to see her children, and greeted them affectionately when she met them, but she she did not talk to them or to anyone. She once asked if the riyer was high, and again whether there was much water in the cistern. She had without question deterrninedto die, and there is no probability that the execution of her purpose could be long prevented. She was born in Michigan and came here with her father.
