" Si. Plunkard" has a granger band that will parade • the street tomorrow. He puts a threshing machine on the stage, has a train of cars, a revolving fair ground track, and several other curious mechanical devices. In addition he. is said to be the best whistler on the stage. The Burt musical society gave an entertainment Friday evening which was attended by 28 young people of Algona, who drove up in carriages. There were 40 voices in the chorus and the new Methodist church was filled to hear them. All from here report a pleasant time F. S. Stough will remain in Algona a few months to close' up his business, when he and V. H., his brother in Minneapolis, expect to go together to a place not yet decided on and open a land and loan office. Both have had ample experience and the firm will be a big addition to the town which gets them. The " Si. Plunkard" company has been playing in Dubuque, Cedar Rapids, Marshalltown, etc., on its way. to Algona, where it appears toworrow night. The play is an eastern farm picture and J. C. Lewis as .the Yankee farmer is a great hit. Several in Algona have seen the company and recommended it Very highly. Dr. Sheetz got word last week that Harry Moore, who 'has been at Annapolis preparing for examination for the naval academy, had been taken sick with what appeared to be diphtheria. A later telegram announced that it was not serious and that he was better. His examination is postponed until he recovers. The representative of a Peoria electric light company, which is putting lights into Tama, Toledo, Denison, and other Iowa towns, wants to get a franchise in Algona, and will visit the council Saturday evening. He will run the city water .works and his light works together, saving the town a big item on pumping expenses. After the three hottest days ever seen here at this time of the year the weather changed suddenly last Friday and the thermometer fell over 60 degrees. Frost 'killed a great deal of garden stuff, and cut the potatoes and corn quite generally. Nothing was seriously damaged, as the season is still much ahead of the average. Geo. L. Galbraith bought the A. Hough property last week and will begin at once extensive improvements to fit it for his future residence. He will move the old house to the center of the lots, add to it and rebuild it, making a comfortable and attractive home. The site is one of the pleasantest in Algona, and this change will greatly improve it. Manager Haggard has secured Chas. BYohinan's "Jane" to open the fall theatrical season. The company will come in September, and will be up to the high standard of Frohman's companies which gave "Glorlana" and ''The Masked Ball." "Jane" is a play much like "The Masked Ball," and one of the cleverest and cleanest comedies ever put on the stage. A road was lately laid through D, H, Hutchins' farm in Lotts Creek on condition that the petitioners pay &500 right of way, Mr, Hutchins appeals to the court from the assessment of damages, which he says is too imall, and the others file a statement ,n court that they will not only not my the $500, but will not pay a dollar, it looks as though the road would not be laid. In the debate between the students of ;he Minnesota University and the Iowa state University, in which M, E. Lum.' bar took part, the Minnesota boys came out ahead by two judges to one, They affirmed that inter'national bl'metalism was practicable. The debate was held at Iowa City, and all the ei« speakers nade able arguments. Last year the !owa City boys won the debate at MiB' neapolis; , _ Ster?bacb »»d G, W, Cafly are organizing an orchestra, which they will put OB the road ne$t fall and winter through northern, Iowa and southern Minnesota. They will have a harp, clarionet, and violin all handled by skilled artists, anft will play thiev selves. It will be one of the best musicial combinations in Iowa, and will have plenty to do, as both of the managers, are so well known. The town of Elmore is named after Andrew E. Elmore ol Wisconsin, now 10 years of age. He came to Wisconsin territoriafdays and settled at Muk- wonego.

Bagnell going to Clear Lake. Rev. f lattngan was g'reeted by his old friends, who were pleased to hear him again. He reports that Clear Lake will ha¥e an exceptionally good season this yeaf, and that fishing is excellent. Rev, Bagnell also says that Clear Lake is fixed to entertain in excellent style and says that he met with a most hospitable reception. Monday the well diggers struck granite at 1,050 feet and a fissure let the water in the well down about 80 feet. The council then decided to test the present flow and accordingly a pump was put in about 80 feet below the surface of the water and at 2 o'clock in the morning yesterday a stream of from 50 to 60 gallons a minute was started. This amount of water did not seem to lower the well. The water stands about 95 feet from the top. If the test is satisfactory a new,pump will be got and set to work. The present pump owned by the city will n'ot go in the new well. A pump for it will -cost about $1,000. The two wells can both be used. Prairie township .has a peculiar society. It consists of five women and two men, who own 480 acres of land in common, who divide what they earn, who are under vows of celibacy, and who call themselves the third order of St. Francis. Mr. Helfrlck is at tho head of it. They came from Germany, where their peculiar ideas were developed. They do not belong to any general order, but are a little society all by themselves. All seven are now well advanced in years, and when they die there will be tio one left to propagate their Ideas, as they do not get any new recruits. Students of. sociology can find much to consider in such a small and curious society as this. • A. C. Ripley was over from Garner Monday on that L. L. Colby whisky case, which still holds fire. Colby was caught at Swea City for peddling whisky and fined by Justice Mollnder $450 and costs. He escaped from the constable while on the way to Bancroft. The case was appealed to the district court, but Colby failed to appear. Ripley came and an arrangement was made to -have a fine of $50 and costs assessed, which Colby was to pay. Colby now refuses and wants a trial. County Attorney Raymond resists this unless Colby will come and surrender to the officers, and asks the court to affirm the judgment in justice court. The question is whether Colby must appear. The state crop report is of interest this week: Reports of freezing temperature on the 19th and 20th come from all sections of the state, but the extent of damage cannot as yet be determined. Garden truck, grapes and small fruit suffered most severely. In many sections corn was cut to the ground; but it was only checked- in growth and not materially injured. Potatoes are not believed to be permanently damaged. Small grain crops have suffered more from hot and dry winds than from freezing. In the larger part of the state the hay crop will be considerably shortened by the droughty conditions. Rain is needed in all districts. The acreage of corn has been materially increased over last year, and the outlook for that crop is unusually promising. Prairie township is putting up a new Catholic church which will be larger than the new one at Algona, five feet wider and four feet higher. It will be in all 112 feet long by 45 feet wide with 24-foot posts. The excavation is made for the basement and the stone will be laid and the building enclosed this season. It stands west of the old church; fronting over the wide plain to the south and will be a handsome building. The old church will be added to the school house, which is already crowded. There are over 90 pupils in the school, which is taught by two sisters from the St. . Francis convent at Milwaukee, The new church will cost, in addition to the work and material contributed, over $7,000. Father Erdmann is in charge and is well liked by his parishioners, who number some 70 families. J. R. Brown, who was fined $76 to be paid if he did not keep out of Kossuth county, came back last Wednesday but failed to visit the justice's office, 'Squire Clarke had Sheriff Samson and Marshal Dailey visit him and have him take preparatory steps towards pounding the stone belonging to the city, Brown drove to the livery bara and asked Dailey to get his halters for him before he turned over bis outfit, While Dailey was in the barn he whipped up and left Algona in a hurry, At Sexton he stopped long enough to request THE UPPER DES MOINES by postal card to publish that he would be back to pound the rocks *' in his mind" and that "over the line is out," Whether he will be captured and brought back has not been decided, He will undoubtedly this time make it a point to stay away, as his accumula' tion of offenses is getting enough to make him serious trouble, Buy your bread, butter, and coffee at the Opera House Grocery, & JHfW PA¥ YflE every day this week at A.

L, The Stifc Mae ddttfi; Stft fottefr, the Mtif defef of Efflffiefc Jtegd, Mttst Heftiain in the Pen, His Sentence Was fof Life-The fietsils 6ftheffag«dym fayld Briefly Ritold, Seven years ago M, B. Foster and Emmet Reed, & son of S. Reed of Algona, were traveling across Taylor county, In the night, Nov. 8, 1887, Reed was tourdered arid Foster took his property and escaped into Ne« braska. He was captured and brought to trial, convicted, and death penalty affixed, May 8, 1890, the judgment Was reversed by the supreme court and the case remanded for new trial, Foster on Dec. 11,1890, filed a motion for a change of venue on account of excitement and prejudice against him, in Taylor county. Affidavits in re* sistanco were filed by the state, and the court overruled the .motion for a change of venue. On Dec. 13 following, the case was called for trial to a jury, and on Dec, 28 the jury found the defendant guilty of murder in the first degree and fixed his punishment at imprisonment at hard labor for life. The defendant moved to set aside the verdict and for a new trial on account of the refusal of a change of venue, aaid for numerous other reasons. These motions were overruled and defendant appealed. The supreme court denies all • these claims and affirms the decision of the lower court. The State Register in reporting the matter ffives the following statement: The court holds that the application for a change of venue, while based on apparent good cause, was. made too late; that if prejudice existed defendant's counsel at least could have known of it, months before, while the application for a change was made only two days before the trial. The defendant excepts to several rulings of the court touching the competency of jurors, and on the introduction of evidence as to hia general character, but his main reliance is on the claim that the verdict is against and not supported by .the evidence. The evidence in the case, generally known to the public, is set forth at considerable length, and the court concludes that the evidence was sufficient and of such a character as to warrant the jury in its finding. The evidence shows that defendant and Reed, the murdered man, went into camp at Skinner's bridge on Platte river, in Taylor county, on Nov. 2, 1887. The next morning defendant left the place about sunrise, alone, with all the horses, harness and -wagons belonging to both. He traveled openly for several days on the public roads to Nebraska City, where he was arrested a few days later with the property in his possession, with Reed's name marked on it, and $282 in money. He used a rope to hitch the front span of horses instead of a fifth chain. The fifth chain previously used by Reed was found tied around his neck in the river near the camp where the two men were last seen together. All the property of the deceased was found there, and his bloody cap, and a trail as of a body bojng dragged to the river and marks of blood being'fo'und o'n the grass. Defendant claimed to have paid Reed $640 for .the teams, wagons, etc., but was unable to show where he got the money. There was a conflict in the evidence for the defense as to the kind of money he claimed to have paid Reed. The testimony of one Parker as to the whereabouts of the two men on the night in question, being very improbable and conflicting, it is held by the court that the jury properly doubted the veracity of the witness.' The court also holds that the evidence justified the verdict of premeditated murder. Bo Kot Forget that Thursday of this week is special ladies' day.

Geo, S, Angus writes tha following sensible advice to the Burt Monitor: Now is the time for the farmers to pre-> pare for the time of scarcity that will surely come in the warm days of A\J' gust and September, Don't forget that pastures will run short; and soon people will be saying, "I don't know what is the matter with my cows, they are dry-' ing up so fast," And then when milk f ee sparing up to a dollar and over, as will, they won't have any to sell. Let them set aside a few acres for fodder Porn, the nearer the pasture the better, and lee<i the cows a»4 so help out their pastures and pocketbooka a* the same lime. A few acres of corn drilled in and fed out when, the pastures are scant will give better returns than three times the amount of field coco. It can be drilled in about the usual width, cultivated a fevy timee, and when the time come? out it with the self binder.

The fair he says has been attractive but is rather small. Drs. Morse, Pride, and Kenefick were among those in attendance on the state medical association meeting at Des Moines last week. They speak very highly of a paper by Dr. Woods Hutchinson, who said among other things in favor of physical culture: "Muscular tissues can live sometimes without a brain, but the mental tissues soon die without support of muscle." He said further: "If I had to choose between a school without a playground or a playground without a school, I would unhesitatingly take the latter."

Very Interesting That "a thing of beauty is a joy forever" was never more aptly illustrated than when Parish & Frise placed a full line of Majestic steel and malleable ranges on their iloor, Never before in the history of Algona has anything been done to in anyway approach it. Thirty years of hard labor, by the inventor, has perfected the Majestic range, and made it the most perfect cooking apparatus in the world. It simply knows no competitor. It operates quicker, more perfectly, and with only about half the fuel of any other known process. To prove just what we say we have One in constant operation at our store, baking biscuits in four minutes, which are given away, free, to everybody, with butter and delicious drip coffee.

It would be manifestly wrong to permit its funds to* tie- used to pay damages arising out of the commission of wrongful acts by 'its officers or servants, and which are in no wise connected with the object and purpose of tho society's* creation." A KiffhtooiiB Judgement. The supreme court has decided tbat a good road is not a damage to. land, but a benefit, and :the; Kossuth county 3oard of supervisors are now "vindi- :ated. Col. Tom Harrison, late of Emmetsburg, occasioned this finding, by suing the Des Moine's and. Fp^t,/. Dodge railway for damages for ( failure^ of warranty on account of roads on two'' sides of the land he bought of them, He gave a mortgage back for the land' and paid all but $136 and sUed the company to compel them to satisfy the' mortgage. Judge Carr tried the case and decided that he could collect' damages for the roads. This has been, the generally . accepted theory. ,But. the supreme court strikes out on a new, line, Judge Granger writing the i opinion and holding that the highway' is not an incumbrance, but an enhancement of the value of the land. He says: "If the claim of appellant should be allowed, multitudes would go into court 1 to seek to recover such, damages*, a floodgate of litigation would be opened.' and for years to come this kind of action t would abound. The court thinks it ought, if it can be consistent with the. law, to check the attempt in the bud,' The district court is thereby instructed \ to sustain the demurrer to the petition."
