Thus far the passenger service oh both roads goes on as usual. tiWord comes from Spencer that Miss Lizzie McElhiny, only daughter of one of our Masonic visitors of last week, was burned to death by a gasoline stove last Sunday, living but si* hours after the accident. She was prominent iti educational matters and had been a THE CITY CIRCUIT, Mayor Call is putting a concrete walk in front of his residence, The frame of Dr. Pride's new house is up, and the work going on rapidly. The family of Mr. Evans, the bookkeeper for the deposit and loan company, has arrived and are comfortably settled in the Giluiore house. The Courier says it has seen a letter which indicates that Brown, the slugger, is wanted for a board bill in Minneapolis. He does well to fight shy of Algona. THE UPPER DES MOINES issues a day early this week in order that all hands may have an opportunity to give free and untrammeled vent to their enthusiasm. Jas. Taylor is the possessor of a new road wagon with canopy top. Hitched to that new horse he has a rig that befits the tall,. Sycamore of Kossuth democracy. Last week's issue of this paper closed another financial quarter, and business patrons will be waited on just as soon as the weather moderates and office work lets up. ' Dr. Garfield will soon put in two telephones for parties at LuVerne. His business in this line seems to be increasing as business men come ,to realize the convenience of telephonic connection. Agent Vesper will soon have a new safe in place of the one recently bored by burglars. He tells us that the Northwestern folks have an average of three safes a week out of repair on their entire system. It seems to be a settled fact that Julius Pleth has located at Spencer. He says his obligations here have been exaggerated by the newspapers, but he is going to make some money in his new location and pay them all up. New hay is coming to market in considerable quantities, and the price rules at about $4. The crop of upland hay in this section will be rather light, owing to continued dry weather, but it is not thought there will be any great scarcity. J. A. Farrel of Mason City was calling on old friends in Algona Thursday. He was the first route agent who ever came with a mail car to Algona, and walked frOm the Milwaukee depot to town and introduced himself to J. H. Warren, then postmaster. * Owing to the lateness of the hour no mention could be made last week of the elaborate decorations made by our business men for the Masonic doings. They were the admiration of visitors and citizens alike, and exhibited a gener- our sentiment on the part of our people. Judge Cook intimated to a reporter the other day that he was becoming tired of the methods of modern democracy. When the judge gets tired enough so that he will vote the republican ticket he will be all right. He is all right in everything but his politics, We suggest to Messrs. Hanna and Chubb that they hire a hall and fight this thing to a finish. At 50 cents a head—and who wouldn't pay the price to see such a contest?—enough money could be raised to build all the bridges and grades that LuVerne and the rest of the county wants. Word came Tuesday on the Northwestern to lay off the clerk at the Algona station at noon. This is because of the light work in the freight department, and affects R. A. Palmer, who says he will go fishing. It came as a result of the Chicago strike, but is not in the nature of a discharge. Ed, Richardson and two other boys drove into the water- below the mill dam last Friday, when suddenly the horse went into the deep hole below the apron, and before he could be gotten out was drowned. Theboysjumped from the buggy and swam out. The horse was a good one, the loss of which Mr. Richardson will feel, teacher in the Spencer schools. She had friends in Algona. D. A. Haggard is a handsome matt, Although this fact was doubtless never before discovered, we make the state- meht without fear of successful contradiction, and point for confirmation to that clean shaven face, the immediate result of his contact with the tonsorial artist. The fact that his family refused to own him until he made affidavit of his identity cuts no figure in the case. He is handsome, if he does present a haggard appearance. C. L. Lund is shipping in 400 yearlings steers which he recently bought in the Chicago stock yards. He says he can buy these steers in Chicago for less money than ho can of the farmers who raise them, and thinks there is money in the deal. He will winter about 500 head. He expects.to have them ready for the market when they are three years old. His facilities for doing this are so good that he can produce tho equal of a four-year-old at three. A game of ball was played on the fair ground last Thursday between the Algona and Mason City clubs. The game was won in seven innings by Algona on a score of 3 to 5. Both clubs played good ball, but the gate receipts were light. Interest in the national game has not been revived to a great extent hereabouts this season. If our club wants to play ball they should organize with some good backing and go at it in real earnest. Then they will do business. The present plan will not prove successful. N. J. Skinner was at West Union last week to see about his big hotel there. He also met Hon. Walt. Butler, and in a talk Mr. Butlor assured him that while he had never been guilty of voting for a republican in all his life, yet if Col. Sessions got the nomination for court reporter he could count on his hearty and unqualified support. Mr. Butler also thought the colonel could do som'e good missionary work in Fayette county among the democrats, and urged Mr. Skinner to send him over. B. W. Haggard returned Monday from the Denver trip. Generally speaking, he says, they had an enjoyable time, though their train was delayed at Pueblo by strikers, who pulled the coupling pins and caused them more or less annoyance. He says the trouble out there is likely to culminate in bloodshed before the end is reached. S. S. Sessions and wife stopped at Sioux City for a visit with the latter's parents, and Geo. E. Boyle dropped out somewhere in Kansas, where he has two brothers. It is insisted by our piscatorial friends that a slight discrepancy exists between the fish story as we printed it last week and the actual facts. We hope that for once this paper is in error. Any three fellows who will hang around Spirit Lake for two days and not even get a bite have no business to register from Algona. Another reason why we feel inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt is that the weather is too hot to prolong a controversy where so small a number of fish are in question. We trust this WERE BARING BUROURS, Mfertst's Resideftcfe is While the Family is at ttome-A Bold ttece of Wofk» Afthut Ward is Fined Agfeift--! i 4if of Feriiftie T*rftmps- Gentral -Deviltry in a apology will prove satisfactory. An interesting game of chess is in progress between O. L. FOBS of this place and C. Fockens of ^Minneapolis, The game is being played by correspondence, and has been going on for about two months. Thus far Mr. Foss has gained one point in the game, but the end is not yet, and may not be for six months to come. One difficulty that Mr. Foss experiences is the long delay between moves, as Mr. Fockens has several games on hand besides this one, and his answers are not always as prompt as might be desired. The Minneapolis man is said to be a crack player, and to down him is no easy task. Burglars entered the residence of Max Herbst last Friday evening, and without their presence being known ransacked the house to their hearts' content and departed. This occurred between 8 and 9 o'clock in the evening, and what adds to its boldness is the fact that Mr. and Mrs. Horbat Were at the time sitting on the back porch, without a thought of the drama that was being enacted within. The house was open, and the entrance WHS made at the front door. Prom here the thieves went up stairs, where they helped themselves to Mr. Herbst's revolver, a new Smith & Wesson, and several articles of jewelry belonging to Mrs. Herbst. The latter were mostly presents, nnd of course valuable in more ways than one. On retiring for the night Mrs. Herbst remarked that a wardrobe door was open that she was sure she had left closed, but little thought wns given the matter, and It was not until the next morning that the discovery was rnnde that the house had been sacked. No clue is hnd to the robbers, who were doubtless tramps, with which the country is overrun. On the night preceding this occurrence the residence ol Geo. C. Call, which is not at present occupied, wns entered and gone through, but so far as has been discovered nothing of value was taken. Mr. Call on leaving for the east removed the silverware and articles of special value and placed them where they would be safe, a wise precaution, as it now transpires. The class of thieves that do this business are shrewd fellows, and it is one thing to sny they can be caught and another thing to catch them. A little well-directed shooting at the right time would have a wholesome influence, and there are places in town whore, if they try their work, they will get cold lead instead of jewelry. Arthur Ward Fined Again. As a sequel to the brutal treatment of his first wife Arthur Ward of Wesley was cited to appear before Judge Cnrr a.t Etnmetslmrg last Friday, when the judge fined him $25 and costs for contempt. It will be remembered that by the terms of the original decree Mrs. Ward was permitted to visit the children twice a year. Ward placed himself in contempt of court by his refusal and the attack he made when Mrs. Ward came to Wesley last week, and for this he was fined as above stated. Geo. E.. Clarke appeared for Mrs. Ward, who also went to Emmetsburg on Friday, but who was still so low from her injuries that it was necessary to take her testimony at the hotel. Mr. Ward has cooled down considerably as a result of this last performance, and now says the children will be permitted to go to the hotel and see their mother in accordance with the terms of the decree, and promises to make no interference with their so doing. ''Softie Pictures at the World's Fair." Mrs. Stftrr's wide experience in afrt enables hef to judge wisely ftnd appreciatively in art matters. Many pictures were mentioned and their beauties delineated and the names of the artists who produced them were given, so that for a little time Wo seemed to breath agaitt the atmosphere of the beautiful art palace. Miss COan gave her very Interesting paper upon historic ornament. This paper was read at the last meeting of the Social Union club, and it was deemed by all most worthy of a second reading, it abounds in wise things concerning ancient and medieval art and adornment. Miss Clara M. Zahlten acted as president of the meeting. Although not a large number of ladies were present we 'think all who were there felt well repaid for the time thus profitably spent. The July meeting will be given to the subject of music and a good programme is promised. AN UNWELCOME VISITOR, Present in the Shap of a ttegtd Baby. of Deposited in Htis Sietplng Apartments During ttis Absence—How It All Came About. The price of oats, seemed to be making an effort to get higher than the mercury in the thermometer last week, reaching 42 cents at one time. This was owing to the prospect for a short crop this season, but recent rains have knocked the pins from under them, and they are down again so that the average plebeian has returned to their use for horse feed. List of advertised letters for week ending July 2, 1894: Mrs, Ana Bailey Jacob Buokman, Florice B. Ellsworth (2), Mrs, Elizabeth Flack, Wm. Harrison, Boy Healy, Miss Laura Johnson, John Longanke (3), Everette E. Lingle, Minerva Monroe, James McCollins, Ella Munier, L. H, Miller, Louisa Nelson, Miss Elen Robertson, Miss Nell Staley, John Sherman, P, J, Siberling, C, A. Turner, Frank Rosentahl (2), There was a report current last week that the residents of Portland and Plum Creek, townships were greatly troubled with insomnia, owing to the endless snapping and cracking noise wade during the night time by the growing corn. E. P. Keith was interviewed, and said that while their corn was growing at the rate of an inch a minute, more or lees, they had not yet lost any Bleep on that account. The Pullman boycott and sympathetic strike is having its effect here. Mr. Lftcy h&4 about 00 hogs which tie ex* p.eoted to ship Saturday, but a tele< gram, caw instructing :Ageet Yeener of the ffortiljweBtfii'P, to rec^ye RO live Mr. . feuaing Jile Jwgs Auditor Doxsee has received a request from the assessor at Germania for blanks with which to properly assess the saloon that is running there, and his request will be granted as soon as the blanks can be secured. Under the new law it is the duty of tho assessor to list and report to the auditor all saloons in operation in his district, and he fails in the performance of his duty if he does not do it. The $600 tax is assessed against the property, which is held for its payment. If he fails to so report, any three citizens may demand that the property be so held, and it will be done. Are there any such liabilities in AlgonaV A quiet wedding occurred Thursday evening last at the home of L. M. B. Smith, which united the fortunes of Miss Jessie Smith and Mr. Arthur Huntington, the latter of Ellsworth, Minn. Rev. Davidson officiated, and only a few of the near friends of the bride were present. Miss Smith is one of Algona's choicest young ladies, was reared in this community, and is known and highly esteemed by a large circle. She has for some time been engaged in school work, notably at Fairibault, Minn., where she gained an enviable reputation as an instructor. The groom is engaged in the banking and real estate business at Ellsworth, Minn., and is known as an excellent business man. They returned to Ellsworth last week, going by way of Spirit Lake, where they expected to stop for a day. This paper adds its congratulations to the many that were tendered, and wishes them a happy voyage on the matrimonial sea.

A pair of female tramps—a novelty in the tramp line—judged from their talk to be mother and daughter, were in town Wednesday evening. In some manner they had secured the names of two or three of our clergymen, likewise those of some of the prominent ladies of the city, and pretended to be looking for them, for what purpose it was not known. Their talk was rambling and more or less incoherent, and what their special mission consisted in it was not easy to learn. The next day they took the Northwestern train for the north. At the dtepot they had a couple of well-filled trunks and money to pay their fare. Altogether they were perhaps the toughest looking pair the town has seen for a good while. Their language indicated that they had reached about the lowest stage of human depravity. Tramps Don't Want Work. A tramp tackled Uncle Sam. Benjamin one day last week and wanted something to eat. Mr. Benjamin took him in charge and piloted him to the city stone pile, where he told him he could crack stone until noon and would then be,given a dinner. To this the tramp demurred and said he wouldn't work for less than two dollars a day. Then it was decided to put him in the cooler on bread and water for three days, which announcement changed his mind and he said he would crack stone. He was put to work, but the deputy marshal had not been gone ten minutes before the tramp dropped his hammer and broke for tall timber. At last accounts he was on the run with nobody chasing him. That was the way the town got rid of one tramp nuisance, and the method proves so salutary that it should be adopted in every future case. Tramps are beggars, and work is not what they are looking for, Probably He Was a Thief. A well-dressed man was at the Northwestern depot Thursday, where he approached the coal heaver and offered to sell him a good coat and vest for the ridiculous sum of two dollars, He claimed he had been clerking in a clothing store somewhere, and as the proprietor could not pay him in cash he had taken clothing instead for his work. His story was absurd, but no officer was arouna and be was not arrested. Coming closely on the heels of the clothing store robbery at Clarion last week, tne strong probability is that be was one of the thieves. SOME FtJN FOB THE FOURTH, A T.ltjht I'roerniuiuo to Me Curried Out nt Aittonn-Not n IU-ttUlrtr Celebration. A meeting was held Saturday night at which it was decided to have some exercises on the Fourth. It is not intended as a regular full-blown celebration, but only as a means of having a little fun and for the entertainment of those who do not desire to go away from home that dny. Many find it inconvenient for various reasons to visit other points whore celebrations are being held, and to such the programme to be carried out on the fair grounds will probably satisfy tholr ambition to be patriotic, even though i,t beonlyon a limited scale. The bills say the procession will start from the court house square at 1:80 p. m. and march to tho fair grounds, headed by the Algona Military band. The programme for tho afternoon includes: Bicycle Race, 2 p. m.—Five to enter, three to start; half-mile dash. Purse, $3 to first, $2 to second. Foot Race —One hundred yards, single dash; five to enter, three to start. Purse, $3 and $1. Running Race—Free-for-nll pony race —Half mile, best two in three; five to enter, three to start. Purse. $5, $3, and $2. Then thorn is to bo an interesting game of ball by two of the best clubs in the northwest. The admission will be free to all, and the band will furnish music during tho afternoon. PEESONAL MOVEMENTS. Dr. Parks of Chicago is a guest at the home of A. D. Clarke. Rev. Mrs. Glass and Mrs. M. Haupt of Spencer visited Algona friends last week. Chas. W. Russell of Omaha joined Mrs. Russell here last week, and will spend some days visiting. Mrs. KateBassett, with her children, from Sheldon, is visiting with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Stacy. Mrs. Prof. Lilly and others went to Fort Dodge last week as delegates to the meeting of district society of Christian Endeavor. Mrs. Mary Burnham of Edgerton, Wis., is a guest at Dr. McCoy's. She will be remembered as Miss Mary McCoy, and has been a visitor here before. Rev. Dayidson went to Waterloo Saturday, where he spoke on Sunday. "Link" Singleton is Algona's solitary representative of the colored race. He is and has been for some time in the employ of Wadsworth Bros., and has sleeping apartments at their barn in town, and his work is such that he is hot there very much during the,day time. When he returned to tho barn Monday night he was told that a man had been there several times to see him. This fact excited no special concern, yet he was a little curious to know why his presence was in such urgent demand. During tho evening ho was up town assisting Bert, Matthews in the work of scrubbing out the drug store, and when at about 12 o'clock he went to tita lodgings hts curiosity was more than satisfied at find- Ing deposited on his bod a burly negro biiby about a year and a half old, screaming like a Comancho Indian. 14 Link" is possessed of no small amount of tho superstition that still clings to the race, and ho freely confessed that he was frightened. So ho immediately repaired to the home of Deputy Sheriff Brutison, nearby, and with his assistance an Investigation was made. Accompanying the colored waif was a largo bundle of clothing, all that would naturally bo required for immediate use. As a temporary expedient the child was taken to tho widow Sklpsey's and there cared for Monday night. Wo understand the intention Is to take it to the county poor farm. It now transpires that the man who was searching for "Link" was none other thftn our former enterprising ten-cent delivery man, Jny Hodgman. He came over from Garner yesterday, bringing the baby with him, and being satisfied as to its parentage ho in some manner got into "Link's" sleeping room and left it there. He was seen in town Monday, but his special mission not being fully understood, no thought was given to his presence. This whole transaction will call to mind an item published in THE UPPER DES MOINES less than two years ago, and shortly after Hodgman left here, noting the arrival in his family of a "genuine son of Ham." None of the details were given, as it was not a proper subject for discussion in the public press; but common rumor indicated that Hodgman was not wholly satisfied with the arrival in his family of a picaninny. He has probably been meditating on this matter ever since, and come to the conclusion that tho subject of his discomfort should be returned to its rightful owner. "Link" avers that his skirts are clear, and that ho is in no wise responsible for Hodgman's apparently unhappy frame of mind. He admits that the complexion of tho infant naturally directs suspicion to him, but the whole thing is a mistake so far as he is concerned. From there he goes to the meeting of the Christian Endeavor society at Cleveland, Ohio. Jacob Patterson returned last week from Tacoma, where ho has spent a year with his daughter, Mrs. Otto Swanson. He will make his home here with his son, John. Mrs. H. A. Sessions is home from Des Moines, where she has been for some weeks engaged in musical work. Her health has been somewhat impaired, but is now improved, Mrs, Pomerine, with her two children, of Mt, Hope, Ohio, is home for a visit of a few weeks at the old homestead. Mrs. Lida Cole met her in Chicago last week, returning with her. Fred. Bartlett went to the lakes last week to spend a few days. He goes soon to Kansas City, where he has decided to locate in the practice of law. He looked the field over a year ago, and believes the best opportunities are offered him there. J, C. Blackford and family came up from Livermore Saturday, The latter will remain here for a few weeks' visit, while Mr. Blackford went Monday to Neligh, Nebr., to begin work in the bank of which he was recently made president and manager, Harry Moore is home from Annapolis, and will remain until September. Then he returns for final examination, If he passes the physical test he will receive his appointment, His throat is msndlng rapidly, and he is hopeful that he will meet with success, Geo. Hornung returned last Saturday from Oklahoma. He went with Henry Merrifield about six weeks ago. He looked the country over and has decided to remove to some point in the territory, as several good openings are offered him. He says Henry Merrifield has a good thing in his 60-mile mail route. Money. Plenty of money now for all appli» cants at the Kossuth County State bank, for real estate loans at lowest rates. Money paid at once on completion of the papers, DANDY dressing for removing stains from russet and brown shoes, also the Lightning dye for blacking all kinds of lignt-colored shoes— each at 25 cents a bottle— just received at Galbraith's.

Whittemore is going soon to have one of the best school buildings in this part of the state — not as large perhaps, as some, but fully up to the standard so far as architecture and convenience go. The contract is let to T, A. Swanson of Whittemore, who has sublet the stone and brick work and tho plastering to Plumley & Johnson of Algona, These young-men will do the work in a first- class manner, and we congratulate them on securing a contract of the magnitude of this one. The basement will contain 30 cords of stone, while the brick used in the basement work and chimneys will reach about 40,000, and there will be 2,500 yards of plastering. The main structure is frame, The Fly Nuisance, Even with bats, insect-eating birds, and the innumerable microscopic parasites with which the fly is particularly afflicted, there is no worse pest in the world than the fly. A fly will lay four times during the summer, aboutSOeggs each time, and from the first of June to the end of September its descendants will exceed two million. The eggs, under favorable conditions, will hatch in from 12 to 24 hours, and in 12 days the worm changes into a nymph, and in 10 days more into a perfect fly. But before this you should go to Studley's drug store and get a supply of Dead Shot fly paper, and convert the perfect fly into a perfect fly corpse.

A sufilous ERROR fttafiTfifi, Thla l»niicr Makes tho Affiende Monoi-tible to jTohtt it, Wnfrd-A Confusion of Initials Does Him ftlk, Injustice, It is not Often that THE UPPEtt D"fi9 MoiNES feels called upon to apologise for anything that may have appeared it) its columns; but it feels that it owes an explanation to John H. Ward of Wesley for having used his name instead of that of Arthuf- Ward itt giying the details of the latter's arrest and trial hero last week for.beating and kicking his former wife. Just how the mistitke occurred is difficult to account for except on the theory of a confusion of initials. John H. Ward is ah honorable and upright citizen of Wesley, whose reputation so far as we have ever known is beyond reproach. We assure him that we deeply deplore tho error which connected his name with the unenviable performance of Arthur Ward. This statement is made in simple justice to John S. Ward, to whom it is due by reason of the publication of his name as stated. It is not tho intention of this paper to wantonly attack tho character of any man, much less that of so reputable a citizen as John H. Ward of Wesley. Tho Wesley Reporter takes the correct view of tho case in saying: THE UPPER DES MOINES makes a serious blunder this week in stating that " John H. Ward" cf Wesley, instead of Arthur Ward of Wesley township, was tho defendant in the Crandall-Ward case. Of course it was an unintentional error and will no doubt bo corrected next week. That tho name of John H. Ward should be mixed up with this unpleasant affair is too bad, as both he and his wife are looked upon as our best citizens. It seems strange that the error should have occurred, as all parties, we believe, are well known to the editor of that paper, Half Kates to Cleveland. On account of tho convention of the United Societies of Christian Endeavor the Northwestern line will sell excursion tickets to Cleveland, Ohio, and return at tho exceedingly lo\y rate of one fare for tho round trip.
