The morning passenger on theNorth- western road goes north at 8:13 instead of 8:18 as heretofore. Kossuth county has had such crops this year that we ought to have an unusual showing at the county fair, Lon Kennedy is under the weather this week and his marketing of "garden sass" is being done by Henry Michael. D. Manwaring, of Corwith, was up from that thriving town yesterday, calling on his old neighbors and friends. It is now only about a month to the county fair. So it is time to make our "callations" what premiums we want to take. The ladies aid society will give an ice cream and water melon social next Saturday evening. All are cordially invited. The Woodward Theatre Company will play at the Opera House the week of the .county fair. This is a good company. If you wish an evening of fun and enjoyment go to the spelling school at the M.

Baptism for infants or adults will be administered by the pastor Sunday morning. , •Mr..Cowanis pushing the erection of the. Court Ho use vaults this week. The openings have been made from the 'offices, and the work will be closed up right away, it is presumed. Mr. Cowan is doing a very fine job, and the addition will be.a handsome one. The intelligent compositor neglected to notice the omission of mention of the office of surveyor in the "copy" for the republican convention call last week, and so he has had to be put to the bother of making the proper correction. We elect a surveyor this fall. Agent Vesper says that, as usual, the Northwestern will run trains to Des Moines daily during the state fair, leaving here early in the morning arid returning at night. The schedule will be announced later, but the time of departure from Algona will probably be about 4:40 a. m. Attorney Cloud has been threatened with an attack of malarial fever.

No further serious damage was done, but the carpets were plentifully sprinkled with soot from the fireplace, and Mr. Ferguson was paralyzed by the shock for a few minutes. The manager of the bloomer base ball club was sued for wages by a member of his aggregation whom he discharged, and the hearing was set for last Saturday, when in default of the defendant's appearance judgement was taken by default before Justice Taylor, and Guy went over to Spencer with an execution. He succeeded in getting the money. llev. Clapp, evangelist of Bqone, Iowa, preached at the Swedish Methodist church Sunday and Monday evenings, to good congregations. Rev. Clapp is a son-in-law of Thos. llobinson and is quite well known in Algona. He was formerly a conductor on the Northwestern railroad, but has been preaching for the past six or eight years. He is a good speaker and a successful evangelist. Algona is now assured of another interesting ball game by amateur players. The court house habitues have challenged the abstractors to a trial of skill on the diamond, and the latter have indicated the pleasure it will afford them to extend the accommodation. The rules will exclude everybody not strictly classed with the respective sides. It is expected that the game will come off with great eclat this week. Shoernan Brownell has a couple of Chinese Dream Fowls in his show window, and they naturally are attracting a great deal of attention. Their plumage is said to be more brilliant than that of the Bird of Paradise, and the birds are held as sacred by the superstitious natives, so that it is an offense punishable by heavy penalties to tako or send one of them beyond the Chinese boundaries. Everybody should see these rare birds. The sight oi' them is worth money. The Upper DCS Moines announce;-; that hereafter it will charge, for notices of pay entertainments, while notices of free meetings of public interest will be published free. Th«; rule laid down is just and proper. It is so plainly correct that no argument need be made in its behalf. The REPUKUCAN adopts the rule as its own; and after this week ail enterprises of whatever nature conducted to make money, will be on the same level, and will pay for any notices they may run. Prof. Swift, who lectured at the Institute last week, is a thorough scientist, and he has explored everything that could be brought within the field of his miscroscope, and he says that the water of eight out of every ten surface wells, especially in gravelly towns, is contaminated and dangerous to drink. He likes to see a stand pipe in every town, indicating deep water supply, and says they are more important to have than electric lights. railroad company.

While walking down the hill by Ambrose A. Call's residence, Sunday afternoon, Miss Nellie Wallace was struck by a shot from a gun discharged somewhere in the neighborhood. The shot lodged just below the inner corner of the eye, barely missing the eyeball. Miss Wallace was affected with dizziness and had only strength enough to make her way back up the hill to Mr. Call's, where she was cared for, and the vagrant shot was taken out. She had started to go to the Chubb place. It is not learned from whence the shot came. The Upper Des Moines says: A telegram Saturday announced to Daniel Rice and Mrs. Ingham the death of their oldest brother, Eleazer C. Rice, at his home in Fairfield, N. Y. They would have gone to the funeral but were unable to leave Algona in time to arrive. Mr. Rice was 67 years of age and had visited Algona several times. He was a farmer, and had accumulated a substantial property. He was at one time a member of the New York legislature and always a prominent re publican in the central portion of the state. His death resulted from kidney trouble. The other day a few neighbors of Fred Miller, of Plum Creek, went through his flax field and pulled about 200 Russian thistles— all they found. Mr, Miller is on a visit to the east at present, but will soon be at home, and it is understood he intends to plough the fields where the thistles grew. His thistle seed came in his flax seed, and it will be strange if his turns out to be the only field that got seed from the same sourqe. It behooves every farmer to look sharply for the thistle. The great danger is in places where the thistle grows and seeds down land where its presence is unsuspected, Director J.R. Sage's August report of average condition and yield of crops gives Kossuth county credit for 110 per cent of a crop of corn, 102 of millet, 105 of flax. 103 of potatoes and 120 of sorghum, T h e grain yields are given ai-i 25 bushels of wheat per acre, 60 bushels of oats, go bushels of rye, and 45 bushels of barley, Only one county in the state is credited with » bet- tey yield of wheat, and that is Henry, for- win' Qb 30 bushels -an acre IB esti* ,«,$uojboiat is the only «ejgh; ty'that shows « 'a 'lifce fOTo^ condition, and that condition" is Kggsuth's.

Kennedy, this week. He is a sergeant in the Maquoketa company, of the first regiment, and came up from camp at Waverly. Editors Bookman and Williams, of the West Bend Advance, and their wives, drove across the country to this place last Wednesday. The REPUBLICAN was favored with a pleasant call from the men folks.

They were met at the depot by the Al^ gona Military Band and a large concourse of citizens who welcomed them home in a royal svay and escorted them to the armory. The welcome they received was partly owing to the fact that they won both of the trophys in the rifle contest Tuesday. Our citizens have always shown their appreciation of the company and the warmth of their reception is very pleasing to the soldier boys. Every member of the company looked tanned and hearty after their week of camp life, and, not a case of sickness was reported in company F. The boys were very much pleased with Waverly as an encampment town. They had a good camp ground and the citi/.eiis did everything possible to make their stay pleasant. Waverly is about the siz« 01' Algona,, is light by electric lights and has seven saloons running. No disturbance was caused by the soldier boys except on the Saturday night ui' their arrival. Two of the First regiment boys got into an altercation down town that resulted in somewhat of a general row, but which was Hpet:dil> .squelched.. The rain Thursday and Krjday caused very little discomfort as tho ground was sandy and drained the water about as quickly as it fell. The Company F rille (earn, composed ol:M. J. Walsh. Chas. Witliam, Walter Ward, Jesse Stuphenson and Eli Bur- batik, distinguished itself by winuhig both prizes in the rille contest Tuesday. Their score was exactly tlm same as that made by them last year, when the Webster City company carried oil the prizes. The trophies won are known as the "Beck trophy' 7 and "Co. II. trophy," and have been contested for for four years. They have ,to be won three years in succession in order to be retained. Our team were the winners for two years in succession, but last year they were wrested away from them by the Webster City company. They are handsome silver vases about twelve inches high, and are now on exhibition, at Diugley & Piigh's jewelry store. The Algona company stand high ia the regiment as is shown by their being put forward on every possible occasion. Lieut. Chubb tilled the position of bat- alion adjutant during the entire time, leaving Lieut. Daiigherty in command of the company, as Captain Haggard acted as Batalion Major in place of Maj.Kirk a good share of the time. The Captain made as good a Major as he is a Captain and Lieut. Chubb won the 'good Opinion of all as ^adjutant. Maj. Kirk, who lives at Mason City and is very popular with his batalion, the third, to which Company F .belongs; was presented with an elegant silver tray by the officers of the batalion, in token of the high appreciation in which he is held.
