The jury drawing will be at the court house to-morrow. Mr. JReed's Institute is a great aggregation . It closes tomorrow. Dr. Tribon is having a hard run of typhoid fever and is very low. The Kossuth county editorial convention meets at Bancroft Sept. 14. Chas. -X. Wooster and Miss Mae Clarke, of Biverdale, are of the newly married. Mrs. W. H. Conner has been quite ill for a week, but it is hoped that her fever may be broken up. Mayor Haggard makes the very good suggestion that dogs should be kept off the street during doe days. Senator Allison has presented the Library Asssociation with the latest official map of the United States. The Clear Lake people have engaged Col. Ingersoll to deliver his lecture on Lincoln in a circus tent on Sunday, September first. The electricians are here t6 put in the wires and telephones of the city circuit, and the work will begin as soon as their tools arrive. . Photographer Peterson is thinking some of hiring a good photographer to help him in his gallery. He is getting more than he can do. Within the week Mrs. Bert Peck and Mrs. Alex Me Arthur have presented, their husbands with tine baby girls., Great crop year, this. Mrs. Laura Mann, of Irvington township, entertained Prof, and Mrs. Gilchrist and a number of old students of the JSTormal at tea last evening. A picnic will be given, Aug. 31, by the Sunday school in the Herman neighborhood, in one of the many beautiful groves in the near vicinity. Mr. Goodrich, opposite the REPUBLICAN office, has worked up a big repairing business which keeps him constantly busy. He can fix anything. The Courier says that Bob Little,who was in for drunkenness last week, "has reached that stage of the game that he doesn't feel right when he is sober." This is a warning to the giddy. Fred Fuller completed an addition 16 by 20 feet to his residence last week. He also finished a big cistern just in time to have it filled by Friday night's big rain. He was in great luck, The Congregational church was well filled, Sunday-evening, when Bev. Stevens #ave his impressions 0f the Boston Endeavor (convention. His descriptions of scenes there were interesting. The Courier's Whittemore correspondent says that "Algona does not dare to play N-evada or Wbittemore," is the game, perhaps not, but if science and skill can be made to count, bring on your braves. The Spirit Lake Beacon says that at the A. OP II. W. convention at that place lastWednesday of Algona was elected one of the vice presidents, So at seeme'that Algona has drawn another blank. Dr. Swift, of Rochester, N, Y-, who gave instruction and entertainment to Kossuth "county's teachers last Th-up day and Friday evenings, was on the program for a lecture before the Palo Alto county institute Monday evening, Little Florence JJ. Brown, •dwghter of liveryman Chas, J, Brown, enter" tained a large party of young friends last Friday afternoon. After supper Mr, Brown took the entire party of. jflerry young fojks for a ride in his big red b,an,4 wagop. . • .

It is wonderful to tell, but they dp say that a soap fakir did a fair business on the outskirts of town last week. He sold probably 15 cents worth of soap for a dollar, and the way he did it was to tell his customers that they would each get upwards of 100 pieces of crockery next week. H. G. Campbell was in Algona the first of the week in the interest of Cornell College, and was the guest of Rev. and Mrs. Kennedy, who are graduates from that excellent institution. There is probably no institution in the west that can boast better educational facilities. J. D. Hamilton says people are asking him about those bears down south. He says the woods are full of them and he can furnish families who want bears and will pay the express. He has them constantly on hand, but the healthiest demand he has met with is for hard wood. Landlord Tennant has heard so many big oats and wheat stories this summer from his farmer patrons, that good as his business always is, he would trade it for land. It is a nota- ble'circumstance that he does not offer to^trade io for',••national bank, stock or anything but land. •'/ • A party was given by Henry Reid, of Union, in honor of his daughter's eighteenth birthday. The young people of the neighborhood, to the number of 35 or 40, celebrated the occasion. Ice cream and elegant refreshments were served. Mr. Reid's family know how to make their guests happy. D. S. Miller has bargained his beautiful place in the southern part of town to Edw. R. Cook, of Burt township, whohas made a payment, and the transfer will doubtless be made, and the new owner will soon move in. Mr. Miller will buy another place, but he will not find a finer one. The school board met, Monday evening, to consider what to do in view of the sickness of Prof. Dixson, who is not expected to be able to resume his place at the opening of the fall term. It was decided to give Miss Coate the general charge and assign some.of the high school work to Bert Barr. George Bailey came up from » averly yesterday morning. He reported that Company F was making a fine record. Lieut. Daugherty was to command at the rifle practice yesterday. To-day is Governor's day, the sham battle comes Friday. The company will arrive home Friday afternoon, over the Milwaukee. Ambrose A. Call tells how a senatorial contest was settled by lot in the early days, The convention was held at Clear Lake and the district represented covered a good many counties. H. F. Watson was Kossuth county's candidate, but nobody wanted the nomination.' A Butler county nian got the nomination. The editor had his attention called to an error wade in these columns last week in the statement that the Baptist was the only Protestant church service on the previous Sunday morning. The Episcopal and Swedish Lutheran had services, and the mistake was a bad one, which somehow the intelligent compositor failed to coirect. Puring the storm Friday evening a large tree just this side of the Thompson hill, southwest of town, was blown down and the top completely covered up the wagon of a party of campers standing by it, The party were in the tent cjose by, but were not disturbed and were not aware of the danger they had been in till next morning,' \ A mun who wanted to set ijp a pho- nograpU Qitke street, left town disgus- 4,64 last weejs because Ma^op Haggard tojcj him «e would Jjaye to pay.a, license fee.

Mr. Eddy is a first rate neighbor. lie is too good for Missouri. The semi-annual statement of the Algona Deposit and Loan Association shows a healthy condition of that institution and indicates that its business is well managed. The association has been enabled to declare a dividend of 1(5.13 per cent. State Bank Examiner II. A. Miller certifies the correctness of the statement issued and compliments the retiring assistant secretary upon the manner in which the books have been kept. The Cedar Bapicls Gazette is now printed from type set and cast by a Mergenthaler linotype machine. This is one of the wonders of the age. The machine is taking the place of the compositor in the large cities, whose papers are enabled to appear in a new dress every norning. Milt. A. Hollabaugh, so well known and admired in Algona, as for a time foreman of the REPUBLICAN, has been on the Gazette's editorial staff for several years and is its telegraph editor. On account of having too long awaited particulars, the.REPUBLICAN omitted mention of the death of Miss Eva Carpenter last week when it naturally would have been made. Miss Carpenter was 32 years of age, and for seven years had been an invalid, her disease being of a spinal nature. She suffered in patience and Christian resignation, and was beloved by the few who knew her. The funeral services were conducted by her pastor, Kev. Kennedy, of the M. E. church. A serenading party composed of some of our most cultured and best voiced singers were out Wednesday night and gave the town a great treat. The party w.ere organized by J. J. ,Eyan and were^driven in Mr. Brown's capacious band'wagou, pulled by four of his fine horses.. The ladies and gentlemen composing the double quartet were the Misses Zoa and Luella Wartman,Louise McCoy,, and Bertha Hancock, and Messrs. J. J. Ryan, Frank Tellier, Alt'. Chapiu, and Fred Fuller. E. 0. Fitz, president of theGermania State Bank, was in the city Saturday. He says in regard to the story of a turnout of 160 bushels of oats to the acre in that.neighborhood, that he has investigated the matter and found that it is true. There was only a small piece on the edge of a slough, and it was carefully measured and found to contain exactly 211 square rods, from which there were threshed 2H bushels, or one bushel to the square rod, or at the rate of 160 bushels to the acre. So that story is all right, and we wait till next week to see if the record can be beat. • :The > REPUBLICAN hopes that the State Register is correct in its theory that we are less apt to have an early frost this season than usual, because we !iave about the same quantity of heat each year, and so far we have had a temperature almost steadily below normal, but all the same a light frost was reported Monday morning in some sections of the county—not enough to do harm but yet enough to create a lively looking forward to terrors possible to come. The corn at present is making great strides, and a few weeks will place it beyond danger. C, E. Heise was atMarshalltownlast week as a delegate of Algona lodge to the grand lodge of the Knights of Pythias, While there he interviewed the superintendent of the electric light plant and from him learned that it costs that city only $1,200 per annum to run its 65 arc lights for street illumination, the city owning the plant. When the lighting was done by contract with private parties the city paid $2,000 per annum for only 23 arcs. The superintendent stated that an efficient plant for a town like Algona could, owing to the reduction in price of electrical machinery and appliances, be put in for $5,000, which is about what Esthervjlle put into her plant, which is owned by the «ity. it was a boisterous storm of thunder, wind and rain that swept over this section Friday night, beginning about baJf past eight, The rainfall was h$avy # n( * the 'flashes of lightning were continuous. The wind wag the we have, had this season, & A gre^t PWPJ. trees fa fLtf s^y flelds Qjt com blew down large numbers of stacks an<J djsjpaan$e<i numerous wind'Wilis,.

He is one of Algona's brightest and best educated young men, and there will be no doubt of his success in the school room. The manner of some ladies in carrying money and articles of value about with them in trunks and valises has occasioned frequent comment on the part of the "men folks," who never do such things. This strange feminine habit was brought up to furnish food for remark among the knot of traveling men at the Milwaukee depot a few evenings ago. On top of a pile of trunks was one checked for Clear Lake, which besides being fastened by a good lock was doubly secured with ropes well knotted. It was all right, only when it happened to be ended up, lo, there were four or five inches of watch chain protruding from between the lids. It took baggageman Dwark an unpleasant quarter of an hour to poke the gold chain inside and out of sight, and all the while the traveling men were exchanging interesting reminiscences which the incident suggested. E. W. Fisher, a Chicago commission man, was nearly killed at LuVerue, Wednesday forenoon, by the abrupt stoppage 01! the freight train on which he was coming to Algona. The stop was so sudden that Conductor Ford was thrown against Mr. Fisher with a force sufficient to render both men unconscious. The conductor did not know what was going on for a full quarter of an hour. Fisher was brought on to Algona, and Col. Spencer met him at the depot, having been summoned by telegraph, and took him to the Tennant House. He was kept there under medical treatment till Friday afternoon, when he was able to be moved, and left for home. The greatest alarm in his case was in regard to internal injuries. The conductor was carried home to Eagle Grove on the passenger Wednesday. He will prqb- ;dbly want to-steer clear of. that partic- lilar engineer in the future. The way 'some of these freights ".a re shaken up is villainous. Friday afternoon a large number of business men and farmers went out to Mr. Bright's cornfield, just beyond the grade north of Stacy's mill to witness 'the trial of a McCormick 'corn binder arranged for by Wilfrid P. Jones, who has the sale of this machine. The binder was pulled by a light team, and pulled without bother, and the machine did its work perfectly. It takes a row at a time, and on an average probably six hills go into a bundle, ordinarily, and the binding is done with twine. All who were present at the trial agreed that the corn binder was a great invention. A single team will cut seven to ten acres a day, and with a change of teams twelve acres or more can be easily harvested in a day. Ib is not necessary to wait until the corn is fully ripe, as the ears will ripen in the shock, and it is easy to see that a great saving in fodder can be effected by early cutting and shocking, which are feasible on any large scale only by the use of the harvester, and the investment is only $125. In view of the high price of hay, $125, or $10 a year in interest, will cut only a small figure in the outcome of the year's farming with men who have large cornfields an'd big herds of stock. .

Thursday's Eegister had this special of more or less local interest: WEBSTEH CITY, AugV 14.— Special : Dick Wiltsey was arrested in tliis city to-day and taken back to AJgona. He had brought with him to Webster Oity Mrs. ftose Shiidle, wife of a leading 1 putoher in Algona. Mf. Shadlo ; was here yesterday trying 1 to induce his erring wife to retnvn Uoiiio with him, .but she would not, and he caused Wtltsey's arrest for adultery. Wiltsey was brought here Wednesday evening and placed in jail. Mrs. PJuinley, mother of Hose, had been down at Webster Oity with ner daugh» ter, a n(i she and Wilt^y's you::gor brother came up here with him to secure bail. She had trouble in securing it, and was finally obliged to return to Webster City and leave Wiltsey in duress. Subsequently bonds were forthcoming ft,w Webster City parties, and Wiltsey was enabled to return home Saturday, Mr. Shadle says he did not go to Webster City to induce his wife's return, declaring that be nas no desire to live with her any longer, and his sin- eerity i^ attested by divorce proceedings wbiph Ije has already begun. Mv' ghadle .separated by mutual The Boston Bloomers came to town Monday and played the Algoua club a game of base ball. Algona appears to have been heard of clear to Boston, and the Bloomers seem to have wanted to be in position to say that they had been beaten by the Algona club. The turnout at the grounds was unprecedented in the history of local ball plays, and large numbers came here from abroad.. It is understood that Bailey, of the- Britt Tribune, started across the country to be in time for the game as soon as he had the positive assurance that it would take place. The telephone wires were kept hot all forenoon answering anxious inquiries regarding it from leading citizens of the county. Algoua was represented by one of heij intellectual and recherche audiences. The elite were present on horseback, in carriages and on foot, the main thing being to be on the grounds in time. The gate receipts amounted to about $175, eighty per cent, of which went to the Bloomers by stipulation of « the contract. The game was not characterized by brilliant playing. Owing perhaps to • the blooming appeal to their native gallantry, the boys did not play good ball, and the Bloomers simply couldn't. The pitcher, a decided';brunette, could, throw a ball;very well, but she had the\ habit of the rusty gun of kicking at • every discharge. The third baseworn- an also, could throw a ball. Some of the girls, as they still insist on being called, waddle perceptibly in making their bases, but generally they are spty enough. Probably Du Maurier wouljl be bothered to pick out many . Trilby feet, and right here is a trouble that will confront the women generally who would like to pose in bloomers, and whose expanse of foot has been covered hitherto by.a mantle of charity in the conventional dress, from whence it could make appeal with the best advantage to the imagination. A Mikado manager would have as dreary &• time fitting up a company out of this club, but a number of Catechaws might be picked out, unless some of the girls might be rejected as squatty. Their florid aspect is probably due only to the effect of the sun. They play every day when they can fii d a club that -' will play with them, including Sundays, and their continuous exposure to weather has had its effect upon their usually delicate complexions. In the third inning the third base woman was . hit on the knee by a misdirected ball,. and she dropped on her back howling \ in a wink. Dr. Shore and Dr. Garfleld ', went to her relief, but her place in the game was taken by one of the three or four men who travel with the club. The costumes worn by the aggregation are evidently an adaptation from the baggy Turkish outfit so much ad- niired at the Chicago Exposition, They are simply pants.expansive down *• the legs but ending at the knees, in' black stockings, which come out of. tennis shoes. The caps and suits are of a light but substantial material, not , liable to rip or tear, and colored and stripped like a potato-bug, The effect was not bad, and people-who ex- > pected to be shocked were disappointed, The costume is adapted to the game the girls are playing.
