Skinner has sold his business at Bancroft and will go to Des Moines. A new boy at Myron Schenck's is a last week's addition, and Myron is * proud accordingly. While on the train between Eagle Grove and Algona, Saturday, P. S. Stough had his grip stolen. Algona has a new night watch. K Tellier now attends to that duty, while Mr. Yorke has taken a job in the new laundry. The Christian Endeavorers will give a social at the home of Rev. Davidson, Friday evening. Everybody cordially invited. Frank Boswell and Matilda Brandt, J. R. Saunders and Bridget Lynch, Valentine N. Engert and Mary Lenertz are licensed to wed. The Algona Deposit and Loan company has D. M. Evans of Mankato now as bookkeeper. Its business requires a man and Mr. Evans is an expert. C. B. Matson was at Corwith last week and reports that diphtheria is making a bad scare there. One death and four serious cases was the record then. The Epvvorlb league has been fortunate in securing Miss Ada Heist, the wonderful ten-year-old elocutionist and personatori for an entertainment on July 17. . An impromptu dance brought out the young people Thursday eyening for an enjoyable time. The Algona orchestra with " Pat" Cady and Owen Bartlett was as good as the best. There will be a meeting of the Algona Library association at the reading room Friday, June 29, at 4 o'clock. • It is very important that every member be present at this meeting. Rev. Davidson will attend the Sunday school meeting at Waterloo this week and then go to Chicago. If there is any preaching in the Congregational church it will be announced. Rev, Bagnell goes to Lake City Monday to take charge of the singing at the camp meeting and will be away the following Sunday. He has had the music in charge for five years. Supt. Reed confirms the report that Prof. Baker will open the institute lecture course. Every man who was in the county in the days of Algona college will turn out to greet him. The institute opens Aug. 6. With the champion bicycle race of the state and the champion old soldiers' race the county fair will be exciting. The race between E, Tellier and D. B. Avey will come off this time without change of date for wind or weather, The farmers of Kossuth were never better off than they are now. The rains have shown how quickly everything recuperates here. Even oats will be quite a crop. Everything else is away up. Grass will be all right. J, W. Robinson and Prof. Dixson got two fish last week at the lake, W. H, Ingham got two, and Geo. E. Clarke, W. B. Quarton, and Frank Nicoulin got none. We commend these reports. They speak for the veracity . of our citizens, The patent door bell invented by A. H. Langdon is like everything else of value, very simple when investigated. It has all the merit of an electric bell, and still does not have to be wound. It looks as though Bert, had made a ten strike on his patent. The marriage of Wm, L. Bohn and Miss Clara S. Miller occurred at the Lutheran church in Plum Creek last week Tuesday, Rev, Foalstich officiating, It unites young people_of two of the most thrifty families in Plum Creek, and many good wishes go with them, The Wesley Reporter says: "We have heard numerous complaints from our people of the 'double rates' demanded by the Algona hotel and 'bus proprietors on circus day. The why of an exorbitant charge on this particular day we see no reason for, especially from regular patrons," All the editors going to Asbury Park, N. J., are made delegates to the nation* al good roads convention which meets there July 5. Tms UPPER DBS MOINES representative loaded up with several late issues of the Lu Verne News, and will let the United States know that the road question is alive up in Kossuth. Will the Courier explain what it meant by paying two weeks ago "a communication received from a subscriber will be answered next week?" Why don't it answer as it promised? We await the answer, and in the meantime bold pur columns open to the 11 subscriber" for bis article if the Courier fails him. The gtate crop report for com is: "Cprn was never cleaner or more promising in the last week of June. The itaj4 is remarkably even, and in the larger part of the state it is about ready to lay by," This is the cpndi> tion In KQ88utn, Corn i? 10 days ahead, the b«st stand and cleanest fields e Yep seen in the county. The Outlook club meets tomorrow af lerpoos at 3 p'elosk with a including papers Q* some pictures i at the worla'i telrby MWU Starr, lorio 9?B on U* ent by Mies Coajj on hi* mitb, a»d T, K, W pump. At least one agent will be here and two others arfc expected., They will order at once and we shall soon have water from the new wetland know where we ate at. If it is all that it promises the mains should be planted as fast as men can be* had to do the work, and the water Works be got on a paying basis. Lucius C. Adams and Miss Jennie J, whitman were joined in marriage this week. Miss Whitman has been a teacher, prominently identified With educational work in the county for some time, and has been unusually successful. This paper joins the many friends of the new couple in offering congratulations, and wishes them all the joys of connubial bliss. Dr. Sheetz and G. M. Parsons report a big grand army gathering at Council Bluffs. The new commander. Dr. Geo. A. Neuinatt of Cedar Falls, Was a prl* vate in Company G, Sixth New York cavalry, and Served three years. He joined the grand army at Bihghamton in 186t, and on removal to Cedar Falls in 1881 aided in the establishment of a post there of which he was a charter member. We met supervisor Hollenbeck Friday and saw the petition for that bridge in Lu Verne. It reads 74 feet instead of 70 as we had it, at least that Is as near as the writing can be interpreted, although there is a suspicion of " twenty- four" in the letters. Mr. Hollenbeck says a 16-foot bridge is what is needed and that he shall reporj in favor of furnishing the lumber, the township to do the work. Tomorrow according to all accounts there will be a ball game for blood at Bancroft. Nominally the two contesting nines belong to Bancroft and Swea City. In fact they bid fair to take in everything of merit in this part of Iowa and in southern Minnesota. We hear of two Algona players who will be in it, and Blue Earth and other towns also contribute. It will be the best game of the season in this neighborhood and will repay visitors for attendance. Friends of J. C. Blackford will be pleased to learn that he has secured an excellent situation in the national bank of Neligh, Nub. The chief stockholder in the bank is a Sioux City man, and being anxious to secure a change in management, and learning 'of Mr. Blackford, offered him the presidency of the bank at f 1,200 a year. Mr. Blackford goes at once. He will be an excellent man for the position, having had so extended and excellent an experience. The commercial club met Saturday evening and re-elected the old officers, Gardner Cowles, president; Harvey Ingham, vice president; L. J. Rice, secretary; and J. W. Wadsworth, treasurer. In addition to the old board of directors the names of J. R. Jones, Thos. F. Cooke, and Jas. Taylor were added, and C. L. Lund was elected in place of C. C. St. Glair. The feeling of the meeting was that Algona is to have a boom soon and everybody will be ready to help it along. The Lake Arthur, La., Herald in noting Mayor Call's trip south, says: "Mr. Ambrose A. Call of Algona, Iowa, has m«de arrangements to develop his land lying west of here on the Lacasine bayou. He owns 4,000 acres there on which he will have built houses, leyees, etc., to fit it for cultivation. His son- in-law, Mr. A. Hutchinson, who was here with him, will return in September and October and have charge of the improvements. We are glad to see and note this important addition to this part of Calcasien's agricultural resources." VAN HOUTEN'S cocoa, only 75c per pound this week at the Opera House Grocery.

The St. John's Day Celebration Yesterday a Host Elaborate Successful Affair. the Town Gaily Decolrfttcd-LttfKC Delegations from Abrond-Fine Music and Addressee. Providence was impartial with sun^ shine, and Algona with bunting. The Masons and Odd Fellows met under the same brilliant skies and saw Algona in the same gala attire. Both had the big crowds they expected* the fine music, the grand parade, and the general gpdd time. The Masons came yesterday from the south, east, north and west. The Emmetshurg band was with them and the finely uniformed and excellent Spencer drum corps, and these with the Algona band kept them and the crowds gathered to see them entertained till 11 o'clock, and then all adjourned to the opera house, where the morning programme was given. J. B. Jones' introduction of Col. Ormsby as president brought out an excellent address from him, after the invocation by Rev. Davidson, and a song by the double quartette, and Dr. Morse's address of welcome after the encored violin solo of Kate Smith, brought out a fine response from Alex. Peddie, part of which is of special local interest, referring as it does to local Masonic history. Reading of the minutes by F. M. Taylor and a fine solo by Mrs. Platt closed the exercises. ALEX. PKDDIE'S RESPONSE. Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Brethren: In rising to respond to the toast of welcome from Prudence lodge, No. 205, extended to the lodges of northwestern Iowa, I cannot as hailing from Earnest lodge, No. 899 of Emmetsburg, do it with a proud feeling of brotherly love and affection, but rather with the love of a child to the parent. Prudence lodge appears to me more in the light of a mother or a grandmother to the lodges of northwestern Iowa. It is the standby of Masonry in this part of the country. Organized as it was in 1867 by a handful of pioneerr, who little thought that the grand principles which tbey laid as the foundation of their lodge should in this short time have grown round them In all directions, and that the bare prairies should, in these few years have been settled up and towns grown and lodges started. It was then the only lodge of the northwest portion of Iowa. Now some 80 lodges He west and north of it, some of whom are represented here today. The foundation was well laid and they bullded ujon a rock, and though storms have beaten against it and time worn its sides, yet it stands out bright and clear as the mother of northwest Iowa Masonry. From Emmetsburg, Estherville, Hutnboldt, and many other towns before the net work of railways f punned the country, pilgrimages were made by teams, sometimes in storms of snow across those sparsely settled prairies, sometimes in rain and mud or sloughs as deep as the mysteries of Free Masonry, but always with the same object, to take the first timid step of an Entered Apprentice; again they came as the expectant Fellow Craft, then they come and go fully satisfied, having boon raised to the sublime degree of a Master Mason and received the rights, lights and benefits of Prudence lodge, No. 305. Prudence lodge helped to organize and start Earnest lodge at Emmetsburg, Evening Shade, 512, Spencer lodge, lodge at Bancroft, and a number of others, who look on her as their mother, while Highland. 487, Ruthven and West Bend recognize her as their grandmother; and these are represented here and join in thanks for the kindness shown to us this day and also for the many kindnesses of the past. Blessed be that tie that binds us in one common brotherhood such as ours so that we can unite men of different characters, aims and ambitions, different stations ana occupations in life, whether rich or poor, into such a band that all meet upon the same level, is of itself a great mystery. THE AFTERNOON PROGRAMME. The opera house was crowded at 2 o'clock when J. T. Chrischilles in behalf of Algona very handsomely welcomed the Masons, and Senator Brower very flatteringly responded. Mrs. M. F. Randall in behalf of the Eastern Star welcomed the sisters also in a very appropriate and pleasing address, which Mrs. Rice of Clear Lake and the grand secretary of the state, both responded to fittingly, the latter bringing down the bouse with a poem describing a Masonic initiation. Then came the address of Rev. Geiger, eloquent and witty, holding the attention of a crowded and heated audience, and putting with amusing stories and keen thrusts, some of the great principles of the order iu clear light, Col, Ormsby as presiding officer was at his best, and the music was, especially the encored song of Miss Wartman, very fine. At the close of the afternoon pro- gramme a business meeting was held, at which it was decided to hold the next meeting of the association at Spirit Lake, and officers for the ensuing year were elected as follows: President, J. R. Jones; vice president, Mr, Kellogg; secretary,. A. B. Funk; treasurer, Mr. McEVheiny. AT o, L. LUND'S. When the bead of the procession of carriages that took the visitors to see tbe city bad nearly reached the handsome home of C. L, Lund, the rear carriages were still crossing the Northwestern track. Tbe bouses along McGregor street were all decorated, the lawns and trees were in shape, and some of the finest corn anybody ever saw on St. John's day stretched out along the south as the limits were passed, Mr. and Mrs. Lund bad beautifully decorated their borne and extended a gracious hospitality, serving lemonade. Tbe bouse was thrown open, tbe lawns and grove were filled, and tbe fine yards and buildings were inspected. Tbe day V?as perfect and the view stretched away over some of Koseuth's handsomest farms. TUB BANQUET. The banquet at the Hnk was one of those elaborate affairs wbiob tbe Congregational ladies know so well bow to manage, Covers were laid fo.r lowing tbe dieoussipj, oj a re was pJrowuBfi§4 spotided itt 6hafaet6fistl6 inafibef. All evidences went to t«W6 that tml feature of the day's doings was not lees enjoyable than any other. NOTES. The Juvenile State band, otherwise known as the EJmtnetsburg kids, gaves a free concert at the opera house its the evening to an audience Which filled the house from pit to doine. This paper has been Unsparing fa its praise of these young players, and last night's entertainment fully Sustained allthat has been said of them. Ouir sister town may well feel proud of the manner in which they acquitted them* selves during their stay here, The Odd Fellows generously opened their elegant lodge rooms during the day and tendered their free Use to the Masonic visitors. The act of courtesy Was fully appreciated, and the rootns proved a most convenient resting place for those who found the heat of the day more or less oppressive. Algona put her best foot forward yesterday, and it seemed like a good* natured rivalry between Masonic and profane as to which should do the most toward properly entertaining the visitors. That these efforts were appreciated was evidenced by the many compliments which came as a result. Al. Adams of Humboldt was not forgotten at the banquet. He insisted that he did not know why he was called out, but as'he never opens his mouth without saying something it was soon discovered that his propensity for seeing the odd side of life has in no wise depreciated since his last visit to Algona. The train service was so well arranged that most of the visiting delegations got home last night, leaving here about 10 o'clock. QUARTON WILL BE JUDGE. Nominated Yesterday at Spirit Lake on the 79th Ballot—Long but Good-natured Contest. W. B. Quarton was yesterday nominated for judge of the Fourteenth judicial district at the convention held at Spirit Lake, on the 79th ballot. Further particulars than the mere announcement cannot be given today, owing to the lateness with which the news was received. That Mr. Quarton will be elected is a foregone conclusion, since the district is so largely republican as to make any other result next to impossible. Mr. Quarton will be the recipient of many congratulations on his success. The fact that 79 ballots were necessary to reach a choice shows that the contest was somewhat protracted. A dispatch in this morning's Register says that rousing speeches were made by the defeated candidates, and Judge Carr, the outgoing judge, made a strong speech in closing. PEBSONAL MOVEMENTS. Miss Lila Benham is down from Minneapolis visiting. She says her mother is well. Miss Maggie Winkel went yesterday to Galva for a visit with her brother, M. A. Winkel. Mrs. W. H. Conner, who has been visiting in Kansas for a month, came home yesterday. Mrs. Fred.

Harvey Ingham started last evening for the national editorial meeting at Asbury Park, N. J., -where he reads a paper on how much space should be given to editorial in the country newspaper, A QUARTER CENTURY TEST. For a quarter of a century Dr. King's New Discovery baa been tested, and the millions who have received benefit from its use testify to its wonderful curative powers in all diseases of .throat, chest and lungs. A remedy that has stood the test so long and that has given BO universal satisfaction is no experiment. Each hottle is positively guaranteed to give relief or the money will be refunded.

Take it all around the day will be observed in that good old-fashioned way our forefathers used to celebrate when we did not need any speakers to tell the growing generation how the Yankees whipped the English. The price of oats went up for a few days last week as high as 42 cents, and the way the oats came on the market was a caution, Farmers that generally don't raise very many oats brought them in by the hundred-bushel loads, but in a few days the market went back to 35 cents, where it has remained. Mrs, Frank Heal has been visiting friends at Mason City for the past ten days, returning home Monday. E. F. Bacon shipped another car of hogs to Chicago Monday night. The price is W.40.
