Charley Birkofer spent Sunday at Mr. Newcornb's, of Maiden Ridge, Irvtngtoii township, and In the afternoon the Haf^ ha photographer passed by. He says that Charley had a nice group arranged in. front of the house which captufedihls eye and would have captured his heart if he had not thought of "the girl I loft behind me," Al.

Kellcy, of that neighborhood Will thresh 10,000 bushels of flax this year. 'That Will buy 400 acres of the best land in the World. Union. UNION, Sept. 2.— Mr. Boevcr's new house is enclosed. It will be very much like the one the cyclone took. How many of the reporters road the "Talk to Reporters" and how many of you saw something that exactly hit some of you brother reporter?. Did you take any of it home? We for one stand corrected. Thanks to the, editor for those timely hints and with Robt. Burns we say: Oh. wad same po'er the giftie gi us To sue oursel's as ithcrs see us. (Please Mr. Editor forgive this poetry.) Mrs. A. Wheeler Is soon to visit her son at Decol'ah. Mrs. August Trout is reported Very sick. Mrs. August Dau, of Burt, was a Union visitor the fore part of the week.

Frank was an uncommonly bright little fellow and his sudden death casts a gloom over the entire community. The little fellow had been complaining for a few days of not feeling well, when on Monday morning he was taken with a convulsion and died Monday night at about 12. Ho was the pride of his aged grandfather and nothing suited him better than to be with grandpa. They have the sincere sympathy of their numerous friends in their time of trouble. litti't Land Sales. Monitor: fi. J. Murtagh on Monday sold his 120 just southeast of town to Wil j Ham Markley, consideration $25 per acre- Only a few years ago this piece changed hands at $15 per acre, and this aboiit indi^ cates the rise of land generally in this part of Iowa....

Journal: Early this Week John Ish,Jr., threshed out thirty acres of oats that measured out by machine measured 2,650 bushels or eighty-five bushels per acre, and Tuesday Spencer & Ryan, on tho old Sibel farm, threshed 2,370 bushels from twenty-live acres, a little over ninety bushels per acre. There is no exageratlon about these statements, for they aro vouched for by men who helped to do tho threshing. Iowa farmers aro truly in tho swim this year. Swea City Tangle. Herald: N. Ganfield started out yesterday morning with a top buggy and when a mile out, one horse fell dowu, the other jumped over her, broke loose from the neck yoke and turned around and righted herself again. All this time Mr. G. was getting out and when he got the horses by the heads one was still down where she fell and the other was lying on top of her. He succeeded in unhitching the traces but the lines were twisted together and held so firmly that he had to cut the lines to get them loose. Considering that one horse was a new one he had just traded for and very excitable, he got out pretty lucky—with two or three cuts in the lines. of Be'toei StfBJffitt &ft§ Bogus. Slate Superintendent Sabin Ms §efit the following circuit to everv count* superintendent in the state. Ifc is selfexplanatory: , , It is not the custom of this department to commend officially, or to recommend the purchase of any particular maps, charts of pieces of appo-rtus for use in the public schools.- Whenever any parties claim that their, article has the endorsement of the superintendent of publi6 instruction, you .may, without hesitation, pronounce the claim a fraud. While the purchase of such supplfes and appartus is entirely within the discretionary powers of boards of directors, they should be can 1 tioiied to comply strictly with the provisions of the law of seetleh 172d 4 as defined by the Supreme Court. This matter will be more fully referred to in our letter of instructions tO'be read-at the September , meeting of the boards. In the meantime you \Vill give this letter as wide circulation as possible through the press of your court ty. ALLISON IS AVAILABLE. Times-Hep.: Quay's great Victory.hi Pe nsylvania is generally regarded as meaning that Harrison cannot be a candidate next year, Quay, in his present position, could and would prevent Harrison Retting Pennsylvania, and without that state or New York his chance of nomination would be small. There is no other, candidate from Indiana in sight. Allison still continues to present all the elements of availability and fitness better than any other man. MONEY.

"Hit means, Maria," replied the old , farmer "that women air a-takin' the places what men-occupied.

SWKA CITY, Sept. 2.—Several from Swea City took in the ball game at Algona on Thursday and all come back with their hearing more or loss impaired from the yells of tho Algona populace. We have heard the war whoops of Buffalo Bill's iu- clians and wo have heard tho Mulroneys, and in onr innocence thought nothing could be worse, but after half an hour at the fair grounds Thursday wo concluded that there wore depths, we had not fathomed. Wo likewise were given to understand that their best howlers were out of town. What it would have been had they been there is something too awful to think about. However, all enjoyed tho game, Hari^sou. HARUISOX, Aug. 3, 95.—Farmers have neglected stacking so long that the wet weather has done great damage to some of the oats. Threshing is very much delayed on account of so much rain. Rev. Walker preached a very good sermon in tho HarUel school house on last Sabbath. • ' ' Mr. F. Hartsel sold his farm consisting of three hundred and twenty acres to Algona real estate dealers for $25 per aero. . Miss Lizzie Hastings opened her school for the fall term on Monday last.

Some of tho farmers have begun cutting flax. It is hoped that this crop may turn out well. Prices seem very low for all kinds of grain, with but little prospects of a raise. Potatoes aro not turning out as good as was expected. Kailroart Tax Defeated. Estherville Vindicator: Tho three townships in tho east end of Dickinson county, through which the prospective new road was to pass, voted this week on tho .question of levying a tax to assist in building the road. The measure was defeated in every township,—iir Superior by one vote. This probably knocks in tho head all present prospects of the road's being built. Populist Senatorial Nominee. The populists held their senatorial convention yesterday iu tho ollice of .T. C. Baker. Palo Alto, Clay and Dickinson were the counties represented. Mr. Flemming, of Dickinspii, was v and Geo. Baker secretary. There was no contest for senator. T. .7. Hughes, of Highland township, was nominated f jr the position without opposition. No resolutions were adopted. The nomination is certainly an excellent one. Mr. Hughes is a thorough gentleman and an honor to his party. He commands the respect of. all. parties and he "deserves it,—Emmotsburg Democrat.

Our fair promoters are evidently dead, in the shell. They need elixir of life'or aswift kick of some kind to wake them up. A. fair won't run itself and a few old Rip Van Winkles can't run anything. Let's have- a fair next year, but in order to do so lot's first get somebody who will work, or gjve tho whole thing up as another failure.. A Koad Through Medium Lake. Emmetsburg Reporter: A petition is being circulated addressed to tho mayor and city council asking them: to open up Broadway directly north, through Lake Medium, or rather where i.t has been, to tho road on tho township.line. It is being largely signed, and to our notion would be a good thing. The dirt that is used to make the grade-through the lake bed could all be taken from one side of tho road, and this would leave a large basin that would make quite a lake. leisenberg Bros, ALGONA, IOWA. shepherd dog up close to the house this morning.
