ALGONA, KOSStfTH OOtttlTY, IOWA, WEDNESDAY. st&WEMBEH 11,1395. MO. 66. Is what we are all looking af ter,and with one .of thefciB; «at crops ever known, this Question comes to ever farmer. What shall I dp with all this grain, sell oats at 18o per bushel or build a granery ? And which will pay me the best? Oats can't Be raised at 13c per bushel, and when a thing is sold Mow cost of production it is reasonable to expect Ugher prices, Or in other words oats ought to bring 20c to 25c before spring, but if they are only ,20c you make 7c per bushel by holding them. Now, about $50 worth of lumber will build a granary that will hold 1200 bushels, and 7c profit on 1200 bushels is $84, or $34 profit and the' granarf Double the capacity of the granary at a cost of about $90 and the profit on $2,400 bushel is $168, or $78 and the granary. Conclusion: Build a granary, make yourself some money and buy your lumber ol ALGONA PLAYS GREAT BALL Two Best Games bf the Season Played this Week—Em* metsburg Laid Out On a Score of Eight to dfie—Algona and ClaHoft Played their Prettiest Yesterday and Closed One to One.

Probably the best ball game that has been seen in this section of Iowa was played yesterday afternoon between the Algona and Clarion teams at the latter town. Clarion has been winning everything in sight this year, and Algona's reputation has been the only thing in the way of the most sweeping claims. The two clubs met with a deeply interested crowd of onlookers, and the interest did not flag as the game went on. For the first five inn-. - ings neither side scored and the excite- g^inlhTf ace oTatYehfaged bovine, ment was great. In the sixth inning ^\ s wag a double play in itself, and Clarion some way got a man on third | very brilliant, and he scored on an error. This left the score 1 to 0 in favor of Clarion. In the 7th neither side scored. In the 8th for our side Swartz got first on a single hit. Then Scallen made a single and Swartz went to 3rd. Then Alf. May- turn made a nice one bagger and Swartz went home. In the ninth inning neither side scored, so this left the game a tie, 1 to 1. It was too dark to continue, so the umpire called the game a draw; although if our boys had played it out they surely would have won as our best batters were up. POINTS ON THE GAME. Our boys made a neat double play to second and from there to first. Scallen and Wilkinson both made extra good catches in the field. Just What You Want A LARGE LOT Of CHOICE. Plums! THIS WEEK AT THE.

Ledyard Leader: An Algona man stated in town the other day that on a I time some years ago he went on a raft from a point something like thirty miles north of Ledyard to Algona. To look at the grand farms of this section groaning under their wealth of crops it looks "fishy", but it is vouched for as true.

The Emmetsburg base ball club have come to the conclusion that Algona can play ball as well as yell. A short time ago they came over to Algona and defeated our club on our own grounds, and they have been jubilant ever since, until last Thursday when our club went over to play a return game. About fifty Avent from here on a special car and when they returned they carried the scalps of the Emmetsburgers. The game was the best ever played in northern Iowa, Emmetsburg securing only one score to Algona's eight. Our club had a battery, from Cherokee, which they have secured for the rest of the season. The Emmetsburg club had their renowned Minneapolis pitcher, Baker in the box. It is said that during the game there was a deathlike stillness among the crowd of Emmetsburg sports who had come put to see the defeat and discomforture of the Algerians, although our fellows kept up their record for good healthy lungs. This makes a game won by each club, and the suggestion has been made that the decisive game be played atfbeKos- suth County Fair. It is a good idea and would be a drawing card for the Fair. sa'l&irom-oeptefftDer o to i0 f luu-iupixo, good for return passage to September 14.1895.
