Everybody says that potatoes will be in the same boMit with corn if we don't get setae rain Very soon. Eugene TeMer moved last week into his fine'new'home, and has one of the pieasaia'test places in the city. ' Without «ome rain pretty soon Mattes'" keep off the grass" signs won't be needed. There will be no grass. That new roof on Henry Mason's house 'proves that ho can turn his hand to more'kinds of work than one. It is ajgooftjjob. 'The special Chautauqua train that was to'have been run yesterday on the Milwaukee road was abandoned, but round j tr'ip tickets were sold, gwd on regular trains. iRegu'lar meeting of James C, Taylor W. iR.'C., Thursday evening, July 19. All'metnbers are requested to be pres- •entj'as business of importance is to •come'before the corps. Rev. W. T. S. Lumhar, formerly of Algona, now pastor of a church in KTor- restown, N. J., will preach in the (Baptist 1 church next Sunday evening, A •cordial invitation to all. It is not easy to keep track r oT all 'the people who go to the lakes these •days. Many from Algowa are there •-attending the Chautauqua exercises, a. ilarge delegation going yesterday. . Thos. F. Cooke has emulated 'the ex-, sample set by the mayor and 'Others andi ihas put in a fine cement walk in 'front; •df his place.

Meeting tor ffihe annual] •-election of officers at 5 o'clock p. m. . No progress is made tatihe 'tnattevef water supply. The new ..piamplhaB'been shipped, but owing to tfoe 'difficulty -of moving freight during- the strike troubles, it still remains somewhere on the road. Station men and track TO en 'that ihac been laid off on the Noptihwestern on account of the strife© were -ordered back to work Monday, sand soon this division will be again operating its full force. Afternoon whist is saM'.to be getting popular in many places, .and is confined to the ladies. We mean no disrespect when we suggest'that if'it gets started here the ladies ^should Hsegin their game early. Farmers are unanimous an the -statement that rain is badly needed all < over the county. Corn has reached 'that point where rain is absolutely (essential if it is going to be much of a *crop. Small grain is all right. J. R. Dutton says it its 'next *o Impossible to keep the school house iin 'his district in Cresco lodked. Tramps break into and use it for lodging 'purposes in spite of the efforts of the di rectors to keep it closed. A friend of ours was laid out ffor an liour last Saturday at Ipswich, S.

Langdon & Hudson's delivery: Iborso {made a dash for liberty Saturday «ven- iing, but was soon headed off In hie wild •career.

The ladies of the Good-will society <of Plum Creek Sabbath school will hold a lawn sociable at the home of Mr. and Mrs, Martin Owen, Friday evening, July SO. Ice cream and cake from 6 until all are served. AH are cordially in ,;ited. Come and bring your friends. Collectors for foreign houses, chiefly machine companies, are fairly numer. ous these days, and the remarkable thing about it is that they report collections never more easily made than now. That doesn't look as though our people were very much depressed by hard titaes and the strike. Geo. Simkins says that he thought be had seen mosquitos in Iowa, but is now satisfied that we are not in it with the Dakotas. There they have them so big that when out on dress parade they resemble Ringling's caravan, and the people are taking out accident policies against possible mu- filiation. Col. Thos. F. Cook last week received from the governor ft new Spring' fleW rifle of the Cragg-JorgenseiJ pattern, which is tbus far the only one Jn the state. It is a big improvement on the gvme now in use py toe Iowa pilitia, and ought to be adopted as a part of their equipment. Col, Cooke has tested this one, and pronounces it a fiae .sboQtiRg f HP, When Henry War4 Beecher stepped the pulpit one Sunday mpmlng t remark; was tbat "it is " explaining tbat be a man say foal M he ofteie • 'iiykBew what b§ wp /^i*' about, find it was doubtless such ft dfty &9 last Wednesday, when the tnotneter registered 9? in the shade. This calls to mind the fact that the man who put those words ift Beecher's mouth was an irreverent fellow named Richard Capons, and a personal ac quaintance of C. D. Pettibone of this place, who says that Capons had no idea at the time that the great divine bad heard what he said. . As there is soon to be a change in the management of the A, L. A., it will be necessary for all holding books or magazines belonging to the society, beyond the time allowed, to bring or send them to the reading room this week before Friday next If possible. A committee of ladies wilt meet in the rooms Friday mornitlg to look over and arrange their library. W, H. Ihghain, with his family* has been at the lakes for some days, incidentally taking in the Chautauqua exercises, but we imagine he is paying some attention to the piscatorial sporl there to be had. It should be remembered that he is no common fisherman, and disdains to secure a prize in any other than the most scientific manner, using the latest in reels and flies, A patron of the Irvington creamery told the reporter the other day thai that institution is now handling 6,000 pounds of milk a day, and increasing in patronage all the time. They have their machinery so arranged that when the cream is separated from the milk no handling is "required until the butter is ready for packing. Irvington creamery is bound to become one of the big institutions of Kossuth county. One solitary traveling man visited Algona during one day last week, thing that is as rare as the proverbial chestnut about kens' teeth. It may be a matter of news to most people tc know that the average number ol commercial men who come to Algona each week'day'ls about 35. Since the great railroad strike began, however, •many wholesale 'houses have called their 'toon in. It -was useless to sell goods'that could net be shipped. This is the picnec season, and it is beintf utilized often. A pleasant party of 35 from Algona spent Wednesday afternoon in Joseph Thompson's fine grove, and according to all accounts they had what'might be called a very latfge time. ; On Friday the grang picnic was held at August Zahlten's, and many attended, the larger part ol the crowd'being there in the evening. Ice cream.and cake were served anc •all enjoyed'themselves in the splendie ;groye about Mr. Zahlten's home. Judge Carr and Reporter Grter'came over Monday morning, and the adjourned session of the district court has been in session since. So far as the actualicourt work is concerned it'con- sists of the hearing of motions Tor>new trials'and for other purposes, anfl 'the disposition of some equity .matters. The grand jury was in session Monday and returned the three indictments noted-else where, and were 'discharged. Court will probably adjourn todijy. Probably few people know thill Joseph Thompson has a flowing well on his farm north of town. It •wns put down i'n his pasture some time ago, and furnishes a constant stream of pure water. It is less than a inandfed feel deep, :and at first the water did ndl come<quito to the surface, tot 'being on a side hill a little digging-away of the dirt furnished a fine flow, Th« northern part of the county has several fine flowing wells, but this is tln-e only one we know of near this place. In order to secure power 'for fans elevators J. J. Wilson has found "it necessary to repair the wall ^and rebuild the engine-house perta-on of Ms mill that was burned last wirater. The Corliss engine, which was orily par tially injured by the fire, is -also being repaired and will be in running order in •» few days. While repairing the stone work he has also decided to 'rebuild the wall for the mill, too be used in.case he decides to rebuild the mill, and has set stakes for that purpose. The new wall will be 36x02 feet in -size, whereas the old one was but 30x45. 'A<n action for divorce was -heard court last evening just before adjournment for the day. The parties were Alvena Benke against Wm, Berifce, and they live in Fenton township. The woman alleged cruel and inhuman treatment, and there .was little <aiffi culty in establishing the truth of 'her claim. In fact the defendant admitted that on one occasion, at least, he 'had enforced his discipline by the vigorous use of a barrel stave, applied where it would be likely to produce the 'best results. The judge listened to tfhe story and then granted a decree divorce. The prospect for some lively competition in the bicycle races at the mejst county fair grows more encouraging-as reports come in. The latest is to the effect that B. B. Bird of Minneapolis will "be here and will bring with him several experts on the wheel, all <o? whom will help to make some races that will be, as the circus bills say, worth more than the price of admission to the fair. It is an understood fact that Bert Edmonds of Des Moines will be on toand, and there is now every reason to believe that this will prove of the most interesting features of the county fair. Postmaster Hinchon has circulated petitions asking the two railways to loin in putting in a ",Y" at Algona. We signed it, not for the purpose of getting the postmaster into trouble, but because he asked us to, We sign everything nowadays where it don't cost money. But we couldn't help feel- Ing that he had gone into this thing unmindful of the outcome of the last effort made with the same end in view, Whether it proves a success or not, judge Cook's argument on the prppor sition is bound to possess a greater or less interest, especially when be switches on to the personnel of the pro- motors of the scheme. The judge never fails to be entertaining, whether not, Sheriff Samson tells us that the two men whom he has had in the jug for ;he Wfeittemore burglary are ungQubtv edly tramps, whp foad: become bpld enough to attempt aomethiBg; mpre ft? '.'the 'iOU8 road." He reaches this conclusion because ot tbe numerous tramps that iave accosted them through tbe jail wjftdow, »B4 tbe last tbat they " >eep constantly supplied witty w_™, Ijy tbeir fellow travelers {pop tfee o.u,tt side, who have been in the habit of ing as close as they dare and tossing plugs of tobacco in at the window. One jail bicd *hom he had in there went without tobacto because he didn't belong to the train p family, and those on the outside seemed tb be aware ol that fact without being told. They have their signs and passwords, but it takes the law to get & grip on them. •Geo. E. Boyle's letter on the Denver trip is published this Week, and, as is usual whenever he writes, is entertain* ing from start to finish. They tell one on Mr. Boyle which must not be lost. When a change in delegates from this county was made by which he was assigned as one of out' representatives, Fred. ConaWay wanted to know who that man Boyle Wns; would his presence contribute to the enjoyment of the trip and would he prove an acceptable delegate? Conftway wns assured that Boyle was all right, and that ho would know every person on the train before they got half way to Denver. In confirmatfon of this prediction it is said that there was no question about his being in evidence on the trip, nnd that before reaching Council Bluffs he had the name oi every excursionist at his tongue's end. If there existed any question as to Mr. Boyle's talking proclivities, noth ing more is now needed than the affidavits of the .crowd that he kept thoroughly awake on that trip.

Magg«rtd'8 Mafrd Lutk-A fiusi* ness Failute—fioy tiun by & Reaper Meat Whittemote. Addison Fisher of Jtiverdale is one of the few men we know.who is always satisfied. Dry weather has ho terrors for him; neithep does it ever rath loo hard nor too long; the wind never blows too strong, nor do the rays of old Sol beat down with too much violence. In each instance the very thing happens that he wanted to happen, and he Ss satisfied. He leads a life of happiness and solid comfort on his big farm, and always presents that picture of haraonlousness which should bo a standing example for that class of people who are continually sour and cross and somehow seem to have absorbed and are clinging to the thought that life is a burden. It is rarely that a republican county convention is held that he is not chosen by his neighbors to represent and care for the welfare of Riverdale; and he is always.on hand, suys his say, tells them with a good degree of accuracy what will happen if they fail to follow the llwe of exactitude, but Is always satisfied—oven in defeat. That his Is a life compassing moro genuine pleasure than that of the average man has come to be a recognized fact among those of his friends who know him best. When, some years ago, the board of supervisors, in making some readjustments with reference to township lines, left his farm in the big bend of the Des Moines river, not included in any one of the townships, and left him without an opportunity to exercise his royal prerogative as aw American citizen, that, too, he saiiR was all right—he was still in Kos- sutJh county, and what more was to be desired? He made no fuss about it; if he didn't live anywhere and couldn't vote, then they couldn't tax him, so he was still happy. But we have digressed. When wo started out it was with the thought before us of an incident that occurred last Thursday. It was one of those occurrences that is well calculated to causa many a man to lose his temper, placid though it may be, but which, in Mr. Fisher's case, proved just the reverse; in fact it was just what he wanted. That big farm of hie, as many know, takes in a portion of tiro river, >and while his many years of residence there have familiarized him with its environments to a degree not possessed by any other man, he yet felt that there were some things which needed investigation, and among them was the exact depth of the river at a certain point; So, in order that his store of knowledge might auot 'be lacking in this respect, 'he made it in his 'way to string a wire fence across the river at the place referred to, using for the purpose a boat which : he avers-is a seaworthy craft and 'has been 'known to successfully withstand the tfury of the elements wlien all «others went down in the ragawg main. All this is merely prefactory, but is considered necessary in order that the reader axay have 'a proper "concept of the situation as It 'existed. When the subject'Of our -Sketch had reached the point In the river to which his special efforts were directed he 'departed from the wsual mettood adopted for taking soundings and cast the weight of Ms influence, K'kew'ise that 'of his 180 .pounds, into the bosom of the mighty deeip, ; and on reaching'bottom he found the water, to Ms astonishmeat, to be only tup to has «eck. It should be added fcit all efforts of his neighbors to matee It appear that 'he fell overboard shenald %e 'discountenanced. He did nothing -df the sort. He was simply in quest of needed iriformatfon; he got it aad is -still Osappy. Tt 'was just the thing too wanted. A IPntaful Acci&ent. 33, W. Haggard met witlh an accident Friday eveniirag that -will lay him up for -several days. Together with a party «(f young ipeople he toad started for August /ZaWtente, where the grange picnic was being held. Before going he bad purchased some dynamite lire crackers wMh which io properly celebrate on the trip, The party stopped at J. D. Shades to tuike on another passenger, Two °of the fire crackers had been exploded without accident, and another was lighted, which he attempted to throw into the road, but just then someone inadvertently hit his elbow and he was una'ble to release it before the explosion ooeurred, which shattered his right hand badly, and will cause the partial doss of two fingers. He has since suffered great pain, but is getting along 1 as well as could be expected, considering the severity of his injury, and ita time will doubtless regain the use of his hand, Dr, Shore, who is here on a visit, was called and is attending the case, Mr, Haggard is fortunate in ttoat he is carrying a $5,000 accident policy, which will bring him $25 a week while he is laid up. A feature to be regretted is that he recently threw up $10,000 of accident insurance, which would have given him an additional $50 a week. A money consideration is poor compensation fop an injury of this kind, but it is better to have it than to be without it. A BiieJoeBs r«Uuro.

Mr. Wolpert claims the bill of sale to Schwab was given in good faith, and not for the purpose of covering anything up or defrauding any of his other creditoi's. We understand this question will bo tested in court, but as to its merits we know nothing, and must await a legal determination, Mr. Wolpert claims that too much rent, a location not as good ns he desired, and the general financial depression are what drove him to the wall. Ho says ho has not yet decided on a new location, and in any event will not engage in business again before full. Injured by a Reaper. Mike Esser, living with his parents five miles north of Whittemore, was the victim of a reaper accident last Thursday. By falling he came in contact with the sickle while the machine was in motion, the wrist of his right arm being cut half off at the joint, and also getting a bad cut on the left leg. Dr, Garfield, being fortunately in the neighborhood, was called and he dressed the wounds. He thinks the wound at the rist, which is much the worst, will eventually heal, though it is a bad one and may cause a stiffening of the fingers of that hand, A GOOD Beatty organ for sale or to trtide for a bicycle.

M. McDermott IB Bound Over tor threats Against Jos. Cosurove. Wesley comes to the front with a little racket which took place there Sun* day. As the story runs M. McDermott with some others wore imbibing quite freely in one of the livery barns, and a desire to have them removed resulted in calling on Jos. Cosgrove, the town , marshal, to do the job, So he went to the barn and attempted to get them , away, but, he says, McDermott squared off for a fight and ho left him for the,; time until he could go and get his club. Starting back toward the barn he met -,; McDermott, who, he says, had a knife tn his hand. Cosgrove also says that McDermott threatened his life during' the time he was under the Influence of liquor, and Mrs. Cosgrove testified . that McDermott came to her house and made various and sundry threats of violence against her husband's life. For. all of this Cosgrove swore out a war-' rant and had McDermott brought here, and his hearing was before Justice Clarke yesterday morning, when he was bound over in bonds of $300 to keep the peace and also to appear at the next term of the district court in October. Cosgrove and McDermott are brothers-in-law, and all the testimony went to show that MeDermott was not quarrelsome except when under the influence of liquor. He admitted that he had been drinking bad whiskey before the trouble occurred, but denied any recollection of making the threats charged against him. County Attorney Raymond prosecuted, and he gave McDermott a temperance lecture that will do him good it he heeds it. You can always find bargains .at the Opery House Grocery. Lo\v Bates to Colorado.
