Galbralth, west of Algona, yesterday, and all are doing well. E. G. Bowyer is planning to a"ttend the meeting of the national jewelers^ association, which meets at Cincinnati July 16. We have a racy letter from Geo. E. Boyle on the Denver trip, which must be deferred until next week for want of room. N. R. Robinson is back on his farm again, having sold his interest in the livery barn to Mr. Jordan. The new firm starts out well. • R. A. Palmer and Geo. Bailey have been acting as assistants at the Algona State bank during the absence of Lieut. Chubb at Sioux City. The Knoxville Express notes . the death of John Reaver, an early settler of that place. He was the father of J. O. Reaver, formerly of Algona. Algona grange will hold an ice cream festival at the residence of August Zahlten on Friday, July 13, afternoon and evening. All are cordially invited. Uncle Sam. Benjamin has been Algo- na'e sole police force for some days. A. F. Dailey belongs to the militia, and E. Tellier, night watch, went along to cook for the boys. Miss Bertha Hancock is home for the summer vacation, arriving Saturday morning. She was accompanied by Miss Louise Cole of Brooklyn, who will visit here for some weeks. The members of the A. L. A. will meet at the reading room on Friday, July 13, at 3 o'clock. Important business to be transacted. Do not fail to be present at this meeting. The normal school has 43 students enrolled for the summer term, which began two weeks ago. This is considered good, in view of the fact that it is only a five-weeks term. Thos. F. Cooke is having a cottage erected on Lake Okoboji, on his lots opposite Arnold's, and expects to escape some of the displeasures of the heated season at the great resort. "Rome Scott," Bircher's four-year- old pacer, is now the property of Mr. Niber of this place, who has recently purchased him. There is a horse with some speed if properly developed. The Shmitt billiard ball is closed and the building vacated. If Schmitt will stay away from Algona he may avoid lots of trouble. The prohibitory law will come pretty near being enforced in Algona. N. J. Skinner last week closed the deal which gives him possession of the big hotel at West Union, the Arlington. The trade has been hanging fire for some weeks. The property is. said to be worth $20,000. The Kossuth delegation to the congressional convention went to Webster City Monday evening, helped to make Dolliver's nomination unanimous, and returned yesterday. Ours was the largest delegation there. Mr, and Mrs. Jas. Patterson were obliged to forego their trip east on Monday on account of the strike troubles. They will probably go later, by way of the lakes, which will be in most respects much more agreeable. Forty years ago Monday, July 9, Ambrose A. and Asa C. Call came to Kossuth county and camped the first night in the timber near the Chubb farm, where they blazed some trees and made their claims, Some changes have been made in forty years. Ben. Smith was down from Gerroania Monday. He tells the reporter they ha.d a big and successful celebration there the Fourth; also that his filly, dam Eva T., sired by Charley H,, is coming on nicely, and he was offered $100 for it when it was two days old. Chas, Smith and E, P, Bircher take their two horses, "Bell Ton" and "Charley H," to Illinois soon, where they are entered for some circuit races. Both are moving nicely this season, and we expect to hear of their winning some races over in the Sucker state. It seems" necessary to once more remind some people that the shade trees of the town are not the proper things to which horses shoud be hitched, -The recent almost ruin of some very fine trees prompts this notice, and it is hoped that further warnings will not be needed. The Algona Band gave a pleasing concert on the square last Saturday evening. Band Master Cady tells us this will be continued Saturday evenings during the summer months, ana all will be glad to know this, as the band under Mr, Cady's instruction is n,pw producing some splendid music. There was a f usllade of fireworks the evening of the Fourth, on State street, in which the contending forces made it very hot for each other, Roman candies were the chief weapons ujsed. AU over town wore or less of fireworks in* no wise less demonstrative than ever., p, actieg Stands, at $3,ftX); lot 1 at $1,100, and lot 7 at $1.000. The property Can now be sold, but not at «a less figure than the appraisers set. On the other hand ihere is no obligation to Sell even at these figures. Cloth peddlers have been getting in .heir work on soine of the people near 3urt. John Hutchinson was taken in ! or $76 worthy giving his note in payment, With the aid of County Attorney Raymond and Justice East- >rly, however, he got his note back, .hough it bad been cashed at the bank. The goods were declared to be shoddy of the Worst sort. The adjourned session of the district court convenes next Monday, Judge larr presiding. The judge sent over in order to convene the grand jury, for the purpose of taking action with reference to the Whittetnofe burglars in 'all here, who have offered to plead uilty on certain assumed Conditions. 3ther than this only some equity cases are to be disposed of, and the term will not necessarily be a long one. List of advertised letters for week ending July 9: Susan Atchtnson, W. H. Bogart, Emma Dixon, Frank 3ye, Will Dilema, Louisa Hodges, ~ed Harvey, Mr. E. V.

Davis, populist chairman, lends this paper a notice which says: A mass convention will be held at Algona on Tuesday, July 24, to choose delegates to attend the populist state convention, to be held at Des Molnes on August .1, and for such other business as may properly come before said convention. All who Indorse 'the )opulist platform as formulated at Jmaha in 1892 are invited to attend. J. D. Davison brought with him to ;he celebration at J. H. Graver's,' on .he Fourth, a stalk of corn that measured nine feet in length. That s the kind of corn they raise up In Portland, and all over Kossuth county, or that matter. Rod Jain, who told ;he reporter about this, says all kinds of crops in his neighborhood are look- ng first-class, witb the possible exception of potatoes, which need rain. The youths whose patriotism got the )etter of their regard for law and or- ler celebrated on the evening of the Tourth in Algona with rather more •ecklessness than the occasion warranted. Bonfires were made in which Mr. Donahoo's sign, a new one that cost him $10, Lund & Ryan's sign, and a portion of the wigwam sidewalk fell a irey to the devouring element. To jelebrate is commendable, but it should 30 done with a strict regard for the rights of other people. The reporter in talking with J. A. JYech on Monday learned some facts about the Seneca Creamery company that possess a general interest. It seems the company has recently issued 20 new shares of stock, making now 100 shares'at $50 each. But better than this they are taking in an average of 20,000 pounds of milk daily, which shows that they are doing a rushing justness eyen in theso dull times. Seneca creamery butter has gained an enviable reputation in the east, and it is said to bring a fancy price in the eastern market. L. C. Smith is no longer in the smploy of Uncle Sam, having resigned its deputy collectorship last week. In ;he first place, he says, the pay isn't "arge enough, only $1,000 a year; then t kept him away from home a good deal of the time, and this was un- Dleasant; but worst of all is the fact ;hat the business is distasteful, and ;his alone was enough to cause him to quit it, Mr, Smith may engage in business in Algona; if not he has some notion of returning to his farm, Algona would be pleased to keep him here, as he is numbered among our most worthy citizens. The Milwaukee company sent a crew with a pile driver, Monday, and have begun putting in the bridge which will be over the new road leading from the water mill into town. Their proposition, it will be remembered, s to put in the bridge and stand ?200 of the expense of removing the dirt from the grade, the city and county to jointly make the grade. The road is now so nearly completed .hat only the company's work is needed 10 practically finish it. Then we shall have a good road to town from the north, and the best feature ,s that it will run under the Milwaukee track instead of over it. Leonard Criscene has a Fourth of July to remember unpleasantly. There was a gathering at his place in Lotts Dreek, and to make matters go more ike a celebration he went to a neigh- DOr's and borrowed an old musket, which he loaded—perhaps to the muzzle, nobody knows. Then he set it on one side of a tree and got on the other side himself, and by reaching around the tree discharged the gun, which burst and shattered his hand to atoms, Drs. Pride and Kenefick went out on the morning of the 6th and amputated the hand at the rist, and the patient will get along all right. It was an ex< pensive Fourth for him. Wanted.

Skinner, the Opera COMPANY F CALLED OUT, Th§ mlUtfamen hftvifi iJeefi there sihcre thi If ftrtivil in The Fourth of July, 1894, will be remembered by Company F, I. N. G., as rheir initial call 'itito active service. On the 3d Gov, Jackson decided to setid troops to Sioux City to quell, the mob, which had taken possession of the railroad yards and tied up all trains, and at 1 o'clock oli the morning of the fourth Capt. Haggard received a telegram calling on Company F to be in readiness to go on a special train hich would be provided. The boys vere hastily gotten together, but did not got off until about 10 o'clock a. m. An engine and special car were sent for .hern, and they were taken to Webster 3ity to be joined there by companies rom that place, Mason CJty, < and Boone, and soon they were whirled over the Illinois Central to Sioux City. The soldiers left here in excellent spir- ts, and while this matter of being called out to do actual military service IMS but little in common with dress parades and ornamental soldiery, they vent cheerfully and with the determln- ,tlon to perform their entire duty, unpleasant as It might be. Thirty-five out of a membership of 44 in the com>any were gotten together in the short iimo allowed, which must be considered a good showing- when it is remem- jered that not all of them are residents of Algona. Some who were not here that morning prepared to go later, but word was received that they need not come, and so remained. All reports agree that the Fourth regiment, of which Company F is a part, deported themselves admirably throughout its entire stay in Sioux City, and it cannot )e doubted that its presence exercised a quieting influence on those of the mob who were.bent on preventing the •ailroad companies from running trains or doing any business. Rumors of various kinds were afloat during the week in which it was asserted that some members of our com- mny had been injured, but happily ihey all proved untrue. SOLDIERS HOME AGAIN. Monday afternoon word was received that Company F would be home on a special' at 6 o'clock, the trouble at Sioux City being practically over. Accordingly the cornet band and a goodly delegation of citizens met them at the STorth western depot, and headed by the band they marched through State street to the armory. The business louses had been profusely decorated in lonor of their coming, and the town presented a gala-day appearance. The boys returned, as they went, in the best of spirits. They were bronzed md sun-burnt, and showed the effects of having been more or less exposed to ihe elements during their absence. Being quartered in the Sioux City Union depot the toilet accommodations were not the best, and some of them asserted that the small matter of face washing had been deferred until they reached home. Our people are pleased ;o know that they are home again without an accident or injury to any of them. So far as their service at Sioux City was concerned Capt. Haggard says that outside of guard duty they had little or nothing to do. Of course they slept on their arms and were ready to respond to any call at a moment's notice, and this of itself would prove a greater or less physical 'strain. But they had plenty of rations and a good cook to put them .in eatable shape, so they were able to put up with some minor inconveniences, among them the matter of sleeping on the soft side of a hard-wood floor. Aside from their Irst night there, when the strikers were a little turbulent, no trouble was encountered. The reason for the withdrawal of the troops from Sioux City is simply that the backbone of the strike is broken, at least at that point. As early as Sunday the railroad men had begun making applications for their positions again, and Monday morning, it is said, they were fairly tumbling over one another in their efforts to get back to work. There is no doubt, from what can be learned, that while many of the strikers were engaged in the i-iot and the work of destroying railroad property, it yet furnished an opportunity for the rabble and the hoodlum ele* ment to do much in the way of mischief that generally charged up to the strikers, and. all evidence shows that they made good use of the chancev The boys brought home with them some coupling pins and links as souvenirs of the trip. They will be gilded and hung up in the armory as reminders of the com'pany's first call to arras. RECEPTION LAST NIGHT. A reception was tendered to Com- any F at the court house last night. ?he ladies of the relief corps were chiefly instrumental in getting it up, and for the short time in which it was arranged they made it a wonderful success. Mayor Call presided, and after music by the cornet band the audience was served with ice cream and cake, enough bavfyag been provided to supply the 500 oy ©00 people present, after which a literary program was carried out, On the part of Company F Capt. Haggard told of the trip to Sioux City and bow near they came to seeing actual warfare, and responses were also made by Col Cooke, Steward Mathews, and Lieut, Dougherty; while for the citizens responses were made by A. A. Brunson, W. B. Quarton, J. R. dopes, and Geo. E. Clarke. A ladles' quartette provided music, and altogether the evening passed off in a highly enjoyable wanner, The evening's entertainment closed with a dance, in which military and plebeian indulged toy § •brief ti ro e. AT sious OJTST, We clip frow toe ' - p* T Foster." stationed the city. The bftyonet9< cartridge belts filled with cemetery capsules, and the ominous array of Spi-ingfieid Hfles has a "moral influence" that causes respect. The regiraenlf IS in command of Cot. Foster and the discipline is strict. Pickets patrol the platfofm and approaches to the building and no one is allowed to tjhtef the lines without a passport. Ifo militiamen are peftnlt^ ted to leave the depot without permission. Most of the soldiers afe young men. They seem to fully realize what they are here for. For several nights they have slept on their arms with the "soft side" of a plank for a mattress and a fatigue cap for a pillow. Very few complaints over personal discomfort are henrd. They act like regulars and make the best of it. Mothers, wives, sisters, and sweethearts, overcome with anxiety, visit the depot to see that "their boys" are still alive. While there is no regular routine during the day the militia kills time by drilling and other diversions. The large platform makes a good improvised armory. There are no campfires at ntght to give the scene -a touch of realism that'would Inspire the veteran heart. A popular pastime is singing. The singers bunch in a large group and "warble" the songs that soldiers love to hear. The repertoire includes "The Red, White and Blue," "Tramp, the Boys Are Marching," "Hall Columbia" and "Marching Through Georgia." The boys are eating regular, but they sleep on the installment plan. Arms are stacked, and the men are ready for any emergency. CHARGED TO THE COUNTY. The expense of bringing the militia here to preserve order, contrary to the general opinion, Is'not borne by the state, but by Woodbury county. The county must pay the cost of transporting them and of keeping them here. The pny of privates Is $1.60 a day, of line officers and non-commissioned officers $2.50, and of staff officers from $2.50 to $4 a day. The cost of subsistence of the men here is about 30 cents per day each. The railroad people are Insisting that the militia be kept hero until the trouble is settled.. They are afraid if the troops•• are withdrawn the trouble will commence again. The probabilities are, however, that a part of the troops will be .withdrawn by Monday night and three or four companies and the galling gun will be left here until the strike Is off. OBSERVANCE OF THE FOURTH. It Was Quietly Celebrated at Only a Few Points In the County—All Wore Successful Gatherings. The Fourth was observed in the various parts of the county'according to the published programs. In Algona it,- was a sort of short-order observance, gotten up on brief notice. The band was to have played, but ^ome of its members belong to Company P and went to Sioux City, so no music was had. At the fair grounds there was a game of ball and some races. Greeley Garfield won the half- mile bicycle race in 1:28. The 2 in 3 half-mile pony race was captured by Bullen in 1:04, and in the 100-yard foot race Guy Scott came in first in 11 seconds. Then the crowd made up a «pur8e for a slow race in which Neeling's blind pony was the winner. All around it was an enjoyable afternoon's sport, but was hardly to be called a celebration. At R., P. Wright's in Irvington there was a large crowd and all went off smoothly, while at J. H. Grover's and at E. Hulburt's similar crowds were present and the full programs were carried out. These three were the only places where regular celebrations were held, and in each instance those present seem to have been fully satisfied with the day's doings. IHL.fltt&W Bishop FowJer at Clear Lake. The Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway company will run a grand special excursion to Clear Lake Park, Iowa, on Thursday, July 19, 1894, at which time the eminent Methodist bishop, C. H. Fowler of Minneapolis, will deliver his famous lecture, "Abraham Lincoln." Special musical attractions and the Decorah Cornet band will be In attendance. A special train will leave Algona at 9:35 a, m, Fare for the round trip, including admission to the park grounds and lecture, will be $1.15. You can always find bargains at Opery House Grocery. the It Was Not of the x ftiid fttfned Out Badly for atid His Wife* Overloaded with "tanglefoot" He Ltd All Hands a Merry Dartce—Bad Affair All Around, Ordinarily we believe that Carl Busa, who lives on his farm in Riverdale, is considered ah orderly and well'behaved citizen. But there comes a time in almost every man's experience when he loses his grip, as it were, and then, if the controllng influence Is not mastered in .its early stages, there is no telling what he may do. This seemed to be the unfortunate situation' with Mr. Busa on the Fourth. Taking his family he went to the celebration at R. P. Wright's In Irvlngton. There he left his wife and children and alone returned to Irvington station, where, to all appearances, with some friends he had a keg or two of beer with which they proposed to have a little celebration of their own, and one that had not been advertised in the papers, and if all reports be true they carried out the programme without skipping a note or missing a drink. The upshot of the matter was that Mr. Busa got full. Returning to R. P. Wright's he got his family and started home. The road must have been very crooked, for Mrs. Busa says he drove into the fence several times, and had altogether a hard time in reaching home. She also says he was very abusive, and struck her several times, beside scratching her badly about the face, and her appearance at the close of the conflict seemed to warrant her statements. When they got home she says she became so frightened at his throats of violence that she took the children and started on foot across country. This must be so, because some time during the fore part of the night she pulled up at E. Wright's place in Cresco, and sought refuge under his roof. From this time on we get the story from E. Wright himself, who was a witness to the subsequent proceedings. About 9 o'clock that evening Mr. Wright hitched up his team and with his wife went over to the bowery dance. Returning about 12 o'clock he found Mrs. Busa and the children at his house, with the doors locked. Explanations soon followed which showed her presence there to be the result of what is above related, and she added that Mr. Busa had followed her and threatened her life. A further investigation disclosed the fact that Mr. Busa was outside, much the worse for liquor, and seated on the ground, or rather in a "heap" under a window. All efforts to induce him to go home and sober up proving without avail, Mr. Wright finally, with the assistance of his hired help, loaded him on to a sort of flat boat, used on the farm for hauling corn stalks, and eventually got him on the road to his home. Several Ineffectual attempts were made, but they finally got him within about forty rods of his homo when he suddenly "rousted up," as Samantha Allen would say, and pulling his jack-knife he scattered the crowd in several directions. Then he went back to Mr. Wright's, where he flourished his knife and made various and sundry remarks not calculated to be in harmony with the peace and quiet of the place, but was finally induced to depart, though not without vague mutterings as to what ho would do to his wife when he got hold of her. The next day Mr. Busa camo to Algona and attempted to get warrants for the fellows who, as he put it, had tried to kidnap him, or something of the sort. When County Attorney Raymond got all the facts in the case, which he was able to do on the arrival of Mrs. Busa, he made no move in the matter, as it was evident that Mr. Busa was the man for whom a warrant should be issued, if anybody. We have it from County Attorney Raymond that an adjustment of the difficulties in the Busa family is well under way, and it is likely that matters will be so fixed up that the family will be re-united, a consummation devoutly to be wished. The whole affair is an unfortunate circumstance, about which the less said in -the future the better. uated at the Constantino and then followed his pftfehtfi, Mfc tftd Mrs. W. W.

Of course he stayed- for the big celebration. Mr. and Mrs. S. C. Spear returned from the east Saturday. Reaching Hammond, 20 miles east of Chicago,' they didn't exactly walk into the city, but were obliged to take four different conveyances before they got there. The strike was the cause. Mr. and Mrs. Geo. C. Call are taking in the sights in the east, and are not expected here before about the first of September. Ex-Consul Phil, Hanna, accompanied by his brother, G.

The StrlJie, and Consequent XilgUt Business, Caused the Milwaukee Company to Discontinue Two of Its Passenger Trains, but They Are Now On Again, As one result of the big strike two of the Milwaukee & St. Paul company's passenger trains on this division were pulled off, leaving but one each way each day — No. 1 wes.t at 8:58 in the morning, and No, 4 east at 6:05 in the evening. Business is reported to have fallen off so much that only the two trains were -needed to do the work between North McGregor and Mitchell. This all happened last week, but on Monday these trains were put on again, the strike situation being so changed that business is again reviving. Another reason is that rail" road Mason City who had gone out have returned to work, and it is again possible to get experienced crews to handle the trains, the failure to do which had something to do with taking the trains off in the first place. Last Tuesday the night operator at the Milwaukee depot was laid off, owing to light business, This is another direct result of the great strike, and is the first time in ? 2 years that the Milwaukee depot has been closed at night.
