The United Workman lodges of Algona and Burt are haying a big picnic at the fair grounds to-day. The pro- f ram includes a speech from Grand taster Workman Graham, of Cedar Falls, a picnic dinner at 12, a base ball game between the Burt and Algona lodges, football, bicycle faces, horse races and amusements in general. The Algona military band furnishes the music. R. A. Frise goes with his family to the new place in Pocahontas county next Week. The place is a few miles out of Rolfe, on the west branch of the Des Moines, and contains about 180 acres, thirty or more acres of which are covered with a fine growth of native timber. It is an excellent stock farm, and Mr. Frise is to be congratulated upon securing it. He is a good man and the people of this locality Will regret to see him go. Dr. Stull and family arrived home Friday, after an absence of several months, during which time they drove across the country to Wisconsin, then to southern Iowa, and other points, traveling about 700 miles and enjoying the trip all the way. They intended to spend a week camping on the Miss- issippijlriver, but the mosquitos were there in too great numbers and they shipped their tent home. The Dr. recommends that kind of a trip. A. M. & G. M. Johnson gave the Osborne Corn Binder a trial, yesterday afternoon, upoii Captain Ingham's farm west os town and it was witnessed by a large crowd and many farmers all of whom pronounced it a perfect success as a corn binder cutting around about an acre and one half during it without missing a bundle and even taking up the down row whicn they had run over leaving scarsely a stalk uncvt and unbound. Miss Ella Thompson has accepted the offer of the position ,of teacder of the highest grammar department of the Owatanna, Minnesota, school.

Miss Randall is an experienced teacher and one • of the most successful in the county, and there will be no doubt of her success.

IJUUV/XO) and is one the most finely educated young ladies of Algona. : : Weisenberg Brothers, of Dows, Iowa, have located in Algona and expect to become permanent residents. These gentlemen conducted a boot and shoe business in Algona about seven years ago. Since leaving here they have been engaged in running a general store at Dows, in Wright -county. They will do a real estate business here. They are already established in the Theo. Chrischilles residence, and their father, John Weisenberg, is with them. The latter will make his home here. State Auditor McCarthy completed the annual apportionment of the permanent School fund on Monday. He found 6,251 children of school age in Kossuth county and apportioned -SI,•056.34;as the sum they should have the benefit of. The amount of permanent sphoolifuhd held by this county is $9! 963.69.; ' The total school fund of the state of Iowa is $4,707,608.70, and the apportionment to the several counties is 16 9ilO cents for each youth. It is interesting to know that there 'are" 697,228 children of school age in the state. In Ladendorf's window is a bottle containing a cucumber which completely fills it, and attached to it is a card bearing this announcement: "I am a cucumber. Bottle's full. How came,! here?" A very wise person informs the REPUBLICAN that the cucumber, with the end of the vine on which dt grows, is introduced into the bottle when it—the cucumber—is small. It :grows inside the bottle, and when the full, up speaks the innocent looking cucumber with the smart question before quoted. This is the only imposition upon the public that a cucumber has been known to attempt, but .it is allowed to be a very afflictive vegetable when the human stomach in plaoetbf the unimpressible bottle is full of encumber^ Earners are greatly encouraged because of the upward turn of the mercury/Sunday and Monday. Frost was seriously threatened Saturday night but none materialized, and on Sunday and Monday a decided change for the warjaaer took place. Some fields of corn are ready now for any frost that may",<jo i me, but others are not, and an imnjediate frost would mean considerable .soft corn. TUe'prospect now is favorable to a week's warm weather or more, .vwd. tbe complete ripening of the crop.. Tbe damage that frost would infliejt on the ears if it came now would be equalled by the damage to the fodder. A great many farmers are adopt' ing the,use of corn harvesters, and they, injure tbe grain and fodder crop against injury by early frost. When once in the shock the ears are ripened anktlie stalks are cured in nearly as fine 'condition for feeding as wben green. The corn crop has always been our sfcapje crop, but the farmers are likely" to double its value by tne new methods of harvesting which the new machinery makes possible.

Successful Opening of the Fall Term of the Normal School Yesterday .—A University Extension Lecture Course. The public schools opened on Mob- day motning with an able and well organized corps of instructors* Prof. J. C. Gilcbrist being at the bead as principal, and teachers in charge of robins as follows: 10—Miss Minnie Coate. 9—Mrs. L. M. Horton. 8—Miss Nettie Durant. 7—Miss Cora Hibbard. : '. R—Miss Teha Wallace. 5—Miss Birdie Hotelling. 4—Miss Willie Campbell. 1 3—Miss Hattie Stephens. 2—Miss Gertrude Clarke. 1—Miss Tillie Cramer. Miss Lillie Banks has charge of musical instruction and Miss Jessamine Jones has the drawing. Miss Jennie Thompson, daughter of Joseph Thompcon of tTnson township, has been employed by the board as teacher of the depot school. Rev. Kennedy, of the Methodist Episcopal church, set a good example for the clergy, Sunday morning, in making an earnest and strong plea for the support of the public schools. His remarks were in'the form of a prelude to the sermon, and were well timed in view of the opening of the school year on the following day. Mr. Kennedy said he favored the complete divorcement of the church from the public school system, but he urged that it was the duty of every citizen in his individual capacity to dr> all possible to build up the schools and make them successful. ,He mentioned several particulars in which this support might be given, and one of them was in visiting the schools as an encouragement to teacher and pupil, Another way in which the schools might be supported was in upholding their discipline and endeavoring to make the pupils respect their teachers. If ministers would more frequently pay needed attention to the every day duties of life thoy would be of greater use to the world. THE NORMAL OPENS. The Northern Iowa Normal and Commercial School organized yesterday with a large number of new students and with fine prospects for the year. The management have been fortunate in secbring Miss Laura Taylor, of Jackson Mineeasota as a member of the faculty.. Miss Taylor is a graduate of the Boston School of Oratory and has had several years experience as a teaceer in normal schools. A great attraction has been arranged for in the shape of a full course of twelve University extension lectures on history, literature and mechanic arts, which are to run from October first to April ISthi The gentlemen who are to deliver these lectures are Prof.WV C. Webster, of Cornell College and Messrs. G. O. Virtue and Hervey Whice, of Harvard University. The lectures will be open to the public and popular prices will prevail, course tickets being $1.75.

Bowles BlQQfc, Algona. mandintf the attention of tbe - siofiefs as to whether or not the medallion figure representing lo'wa sfrall Bife clothed, we are pleased to note thai Mr. Merry stands on the right opinion of the subject, The figure of Iowa, as devised and inspired by the sculptor^ acknowledged to be a work of art and a most sublime and beautiful study. To drape it entirely with a semblance of clothing would be to destroy the effect of the production of the artist's gefaius and to submit to the demands of a few overprddish sentimentalists Would be an insinuation against the tnofals and cultivated instincts of a more than ordinarily enlightened people. Mr. Merry will use his persuasiveness and energy to prevent the desecration of the representative figure of "Iowa." A CORRECRiON. TUB WIGWAM, ALGONA, IOAVA, SEPT. 2, 1895.— Editor REPUBLICAN: I notice in the last issue of your paper that your Union township correspondent makes mention of an elegant Monitor windmill erected by that wide awake young farmer Herman Dau, and gives credit to "Johnson" for doing the work. J' Johnson. did not do this Work, Jones did it, and Jones always does the best work. In oader that your correspondent may not be mistaken in the future 1 would like to state that the Johnson mills may be known by a sad looking spring chicken perched on a wood arm somewhere about the mill* The Jones mills moy be known by a massive ball of steel which taken together with the name of the mill. Monitor, always brings to mind that hiS*- torical and most desisive event in our national history which has always made the name Monitor a synonim of power and reliability. Thus a farmer shows his wisdom in selecting the Monitor wind mill. Its hall of steel is piercing and silencing all competition. Jones pays the freight and sells Monitor wind mills. Kespectfully yours, WlLKUID P. JONEH. LAW NOT KEPT. Last week a committee of the Algona Christian Endeavor Society had printed a bill on which was printed in large type Chapter 61 of tbe laws of the last general assembly, which reads as follows: BE IT ENACTED BY THK GKXEHAL ASSEMBLY OF THK STATK OF IOAYA: SECTION 1.—From and after the passage of this act it, shall be unlawful for any person, directly or Indirectly, by himself or agent to sell, barter or give to any minor under 10 years of ago within this state any cigars, cigarettes or tobacco in any form whatever, except upon the written order of his parent or guardian. SKCTJON 2.—Any person violating the foregoing section shall, upon conviction thereof, be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and lined not less than live dollars nor more than one hundred dollars, and stand committed until line and costs of prosecution are paid. Approved March'3,1894. No doubt the law has been violated in Algona by parties who were not aware of the existence of any such statute. Publicity is a good thing in such matters. , ^{J •,'' r ^i .-Try QUr,Glub House, corn.

Rolla New Era: The new real estate firm of Adams, Matson & Co., have opened out an office in the west ground floor room of the Powell building on Eighth street. The firm is composed of Mr. J. Q. Adams, of Spencer, Iowa, Mr. C. B. Matson, who will be the traveling man of the concern, and Mr. D. M. Evans, who will be the office man here at Holla. Their idea is to bring Iowa farmers here and sell them Phelps county's best farms, and also deal in large ranch properties. OLD SETTLERS' ASSOCIATION. The Old Settlers^will celebrate their annual reunion by a basket picnic at Call's Park on Wednesday, September 11.1895 at 11 o'clock a.m. After election of officers and reports .of committees the day will be spent in music, short speeches and incidents of early days as told by those who participated in them.
