The Opera House Grocery has something new this week. Brownell & Allred have something new in this issue about footwear, The A. L. A. will meet in the reading room Friday, July 27, at 4 o'clock. W. F. Carter turned off seyen head of good horses last week, getting Kansas land in exchange. The Outlook meets in the church par• lors Thursday afternoon at 3 o'clock. •Subject, Music. Ladies, please come. There is a report that beer is being openly sold in Ledyard. Whoever is doing it must not forget that Ledyard is still in Iowa. The price of hay is moving up gradually, and reached $5 a ton last week. It will go still higher unless we get some rain soon. The W. H. M. S. of the Methodist church will meet with Mrs. David Gilmore, Thursday afternoon at 3 o'clock. A full attendance is desired. J. R. Laird has moved his furniture stock to the Galbraith building on State street, next to Dr. Garfield's office. It will prove a good stand. About a dozen tramps were around town Monday, begging food and money. Five of them were seen to meet on a corner, near the wigwam and diyide the spoils. This dust is all right if you know how to eat it. Judging from the many people we see with mouths full of it we imagine they are doing their level best to solve the problem. The Algona Deposit & Loan association has declared its first dividend, which will be at the rate of about IS per cent, per annum. Dividends are to be declared semi-annually. Agent Vesper sent his old snfe back to Chicago last week, and has since been keeping his daily receipts in the waste basket. Would-be burglars will please take notice and govern themselves accordingly. The basket is not locked. List of advertised letters for week ending July 23: Rev. J. B. Clapp, Mrs. Geo. Culler, Mary Gaffney, Miss Anna A. Holand, Miss Georgie Kinney, Mary Lorntzen, Mr. M. M. Rodgers, Mrs. Edith Shaffer, Miss Mary Sullivan, John O. Talbott. Uncle Barton, the stand-by at W. F. Carter's grocery house, has been granted a month's vacation, and will enjoy himself in his own peculiar way at home. He is a faithful and efficient assistant, and is entitled to all the pleasure to be had in this world. At the water works pumping station a solid stone and brick foundation 'has been laid upon which to place the new pump whenever it arrives. So nearly ready are the preliminaries that Mr. Dailey thinks they can have the new pump in working order inside of two days after its arrival. A prairie fire burned up a lot of grass for J. W. Tennant last week, on his land seven miles west of town. The report that there was anything malicious about it Mr, Tennant says is a mistake. It all happened as the result of a misunderstanding, and the damage will be made good. A man in Algona owns a farm only six miles from town which he has never seen, He says there is no such thing as making a mistake in trading for Iowa land, and never thinks of going to look at a piece anywhere in this section. He will take it on his knowledge of the country generally. Geo. L. Galbraith has begun work for his new residence, and is excavating for the basement, just west of the present building. The old part will be moved a little south and west of where it now stands, and a new front part erected. The whole, when completed, will make a pleasant home, This section seems-to be infested with horse thieves to such an extent that more horses are stolen than when these animals were really worth something in the market. Perhaps the thieves think horses are so cheap that the average man won't make much effort to secure one that is stolen. Sheriff Samson and Deputy Brunson took the three men sentenced to the penitentiary down to Anamosa last Thursday, They say Bowman, who was sent from Wright county for two years, has a good berth there—if there are any good ones—and the prison officials speak well of his conduct. People are bound to look at things differently, but somehow we have always felt that if a newspaper is going to say unkind things of anybody it is in better form to do it while the man is living and able to defend himself. There is something cowardly about jumping on to a man after he is dead. Twenty-six days without rain was the record up to last Thursday, when a copious shower put all humanity in a happy mood and worked wonders with vegetation in these parts. It made the corn prick «p its ears, and the potatoes—well, it must he admitted that it was a little late for doing them much good. L.ast Wednesday night a team, carriage, and harness, belonging to the parties who live on the Wea- p e ofe farm in Fenton, were stolen, and up to date no trace Js found of the They were tracked a shsrt toward the Minnesota Une, when the fpali was lost, Th.§e\jtflt waj a ¥fil»' ALgQKA,tOWA, WEDNESDAY, JULY 28, 1804, able One, which the parties cannot afford to lose, but it is hardly probable that the property will be recovered. , A vote was taken at a chapel meeting of the normal students last week and it was decided to continue the summer term another week. The management left it wholly to the students, and there were but three dissenting votes out of the 47< the attendance having now reached that number, Peter Winkel's team delivered some ice Friday that wasn't contracted for. The ice was left for the most part along the road, and the wagon was turned over in the operation. It is agreed that they made a rather bad job of it, and did it with altogether too much haste. Hereafter Peter will fio along and attend to the work himself. E. P, Bircher and Chas. Smith have changed their plans, and instead of going to Illinois with their horses they have them entered for the meeting at Hampton, which begins about Sept. 1. Bellton is entered in two pacing races, the 2:45 and the 2:25, while Charley H. goes in the 2:25 trotting racer We hope to hear a good report from our Algona flyers. J. B. Winkel made the remark, after the fire last Sunday, that ho was amply repaid for all the water tax had ever cost him in the protection it afforded in that one instance. It was thought when the fire was discovered that his office on the corner must surely burn, but no harm resulted to it. Part of the contents were carried out, but that proved an'vmnecessary precaution. Silver dollars with the stamp of 1878 upon them are said to be worth anywhere from seven to ten dollars each, according to how badly the coin collector wa'nts them. Clerk Grose found himself in possession of one the other day which WHS given him by a man who probably did not know that their scarcity had put an added value on them. He is now looking for the highest bidder. S. C. Spear goes to Chicago, probably this week, for a stock of goods with which he will fill up his store building and resume business at the old stand. There is no question about his building up a good trade. He had one before and will have it again, all reports about the stand not being a good one to the contrary notwithstanding. It all depends on who the merchant is whether the stand is good or otherwise. The political ball opens this week with the announcement of Alex. White as a candidate for the office of county ^auditor. Mr. White, during his residence here, has shown himself to be a capable business man and in all respects a most worthy citizen. His candidacy is subject to the action of the republican convention, and as such this paper has no hesitancy in saying that should he receive the nomination it would give him it hearty support. Old man Coombs, who buys rags and old iron throughout this section, struck it rich one day last week at Eagle Grove. Passing by a shed where some tramps had slept the night before he observed a bright object which proved, on inspection, to be a gold watch. He took it to a jeweler, who said it was a good one and worth about $40. The tramp who doubtless lost it had taken the early train north, and presumably had not discovered his loss in time to return and get it. Matt. McDermott, who was last week held in $300 bonds by Justice Clarke for the trouble he had over at Wesley, had not secured acceptable bondsmen at last accounts, and was still in custody. Parties from Wesley tell us that the whole affair is nothing more than the culmination of a family row,with some bad whiskey mixed into it, and that nothing more is likely to come of it. Those fellows over there should adopt Horace Greeley's advice, and "raise more corn and less h—1." Judge Carr finished the adjourned term of court last Wednesday. In talking with him it was learned that he expects to come for the October term, though he would gladly tender his resignation, as he is desirous of getting to Des Moines, where he already has much legal work that needs his attention. He and A. C. Parker of Spencer will constitute the new firm at Des Moines, and in the change the capital city secures two of the ablest legal gentlemen of northwestern Iowa. Almost any story'about the heat of the past week or so will pas.8 current nowadays, The fact is that the proverbial "oldest inhabitant" is outdone and has been obliged to take a back seat, This, however, is but a matter of justice. We have listened to these stories about the heat " 'long back in '56" until we have made up our mind that somebody is romancing. Anyway It is time to give the younger generation a chance at the weather; let them get some stories well fixed in their minds so they can tell their grandchildren how it was "back in '94." It is reported that the two railway companies have expressed a willingness to put in a "Y" at Algona. If this is so we are glad to know it; but they must have experienced a change of heart since the action of the railway commissioners and the supreme court to be now willing to do so. Algona would be undoubtedly benefltted by the construction of the proposed " Y," and we shall lend our limited influence in the direction of getting it done, but we nave yet to learn that there is any voluntary move on the part of either company looking to that end. An Alarona man who was in Germania recently tells us that a saloon is running there in full blast, the proprietor apparently having no forebodings of the law. Not long ago the supply of wet goods became exhausted, and the city marshal—usually a man who is sworn bo see that law is respected—took bis team and went to Minnesota for a load of beer. If these things are true we can assure the violators that when County Attorney Raymond gets on their trail there will be some lively music in Germania, and those who do the dancing will have to pay the fiddler. As evidence of the change that this country is experiencing in the matter of land values it is noted that the time was when land on the Prairie Creek Bottom was copsidered pe$t |p worth,' m. It was rated u jwit so wuob, swamp, valuable pnly for jjbe graffi upon |t» and lelrfi f bit PRy a Is dtffefent. Those among our new Settlers who come from llliMois select this as their first choice, and say that When pfoperK- drained it is by far the best land in this section, They derive their 'knowledge from their experience in Illinois, where much of the land had to be drained before it was good for anything. The harvesting of .cats in this county is about completed. Contrary to general expectations on account of dry weather, all reports agree that the crop in this section is good, and that the yield will be nearly if not quite up to the average. E. W. Donovan told the reporter Saturday that he had just harvested the best oat crop he had ever raised in the county, some of which he believes will go 60 bushels to the acre, though the entire field is not so good as that. It will be found that this talk about crop failure is chiefly in imagination, at least so far as smafl grain is concerned. Potatoes are small and poor, owing to a lack of rain at the proper time, while corn looks well, and with a Httle moisture soon will come out all right. We knew two weeks ago, but were not at liberty to state the fact, that L. C. Smith was negotiating a business deal at Burt. The arrangements are now complete, and the Burt Monitor says: L. C. Smith, our ex-recorder, has leased E. J. Murtagh's residence and will move right in. Fred Beane, who has been occupying the house, will move into the Ben Jain house. Mr. Smith and family will make a valuable addition to our town and will bo heartily welcomed/ The deal has been completed, whereby Mr. Smith becomes the owner of a half interest in Schultz & Co.'s store, trading in 80 acres of land on the deal. The stock will probably be invoiced Monday, Fire broke out in the building next to J. B. Winkel's office, on State street, last Sunday at 1:30 p. m. The alarm brought out the fire company, and after vigorous work for half an hour the flames were subdued, but not until a good deal of damage had been done to the building. The building is the property of J. B. Winkel and was occupied by Mrs. Nebergall and family. When it was thought the building could not be saved willing hands set to work removing the contents, the most of which were carried into the street. The origin of the fire is unknown. It was first discovered in the kitchen, and the flames spread rapidly over the entire building, being checked only by the prompt action of the fire boys. Mrs. Nebergall will be a loser to some extent, as it was impossible to get all the furniture out of the kitchen. What is left of the building Mr. Winkel will now remove to other ground. A story comes from the northern part of the county that seems to be worthy of space, at least when news is not abundant. A prosperous farmer up there, while at work in the harvest field, came upon a fine covey of prairie chickens, and regardless of the law which says they must not be killed before Sept. 1, he looked upon them with such covetous eyes that ho sent his boy to the house to get the gun. Obeying the behest of his paternal ancestor the boy came lugging the gun, properly loaded, but, as the sequel proved, pointed in the wrong direction; for, on nearing the scene of action, the •Tun was discharged and the man who was going to have chickens for dinner received the contents in a portion of his anatomy which makes sitting uncomfortable, to say the least of it. The injury is not considered serious, but it can be said that the game law was enforced in his case much quicker than usually happens. Our democratic neighbor volunteers the information that "it is reported that parties here have consulted with a very able attorney out of town as to the advisability of bringing an action against our two republican contemporaries for libel." Our neighbor should be more specific. Left in this unfinished condition the item is well calculated to harrow up the feelings of "our republican contemporaries." Who are the parties here? Who is the able outside attorney? And why go outside when Algona's array of legal talent is second to none in the state? Give us particulars, Bro. Courier; that's what we want. But there are compensations even in a libel suit, and the redeeming feature in such a case would be found in the fact that heretofore our republican neighbor has had to stand the brunt of libel suits alone. Now we will double teams on 'em, and woe be unto the fellow that gets us both after him at once. For Sale. The Dr. Read property, in the southeast part of town, is now offered for sale, in .whole or in part.

The Career of a Peculiar Man, who Saw Both the Bright and Dark Sides of Life. J. Harvey Mathers died at the home of his parents In Eltnore, Minn., on Tuesday of last week. A telegram announcing his death was received at this office on Wednesday last, but not until after the paper had gone to press. Deceased was born in Dubuque county, loWa, Jan. 10, 1848. He gained a good common school education, was a great reader, and was a man possessing much information in a general way. He was by turns photographer, painter, musician, editor, and had an aptitude for turning his hand to almost anything. His career was , varied. Growing to manhood ho learned the art of photography and went to Chicago, where he engaged in the business and was doing well until the great fire swept away all his savings and he was left a bankrupt. He then left that city and went to Etnmetsburg, where he opened a gallery and did well for a time, but eventually found it unprofitable and left there, coming to Algonn, dividing his time between here and his father's home, which was then in Irvington. It must have been in 1880, soon after the county seat of Emmet county had been removed from Esther- vine to Swan Lake, that he went to the latter place with a small printing outfit and established the Swan Lake Mercury. Considering the opportunities and the field he had to work in ho made a fairly good paper; but with the loss of the county seat Swan Lake's star went down, and he removed his paper to Estherville, where he managed it for a time and then sold out. Returning to Algona he opened a music store, but met with only moderate success, and after u few months gave it up. His newspaper work gave him some knowledge of the printing business, and at times he was employed in the Algona offices, but for only short periods. Failing health finally compelled him to return to the home of his parents, who had then removed to Elmore, Minn., and there in December, 1892, he was stricken with paralysis, and in February, 1893, was prostrated by a second stroke, which left him helpless. In this condition he lingered until death came, receiving that care and attention which only a kind and loving mother could bestow. The remains were taken to Irvington for interment, Rev. Goodell officiating. Thus passed out a life which had seen both its bright and dark sides, and while it was not crowned with any particularly brilliant achievements, yet it can by no means be said that it was lived in vain. * # # Harvey Mathers was a familiar figure in Algona. He lived here" off and on for several years, and was well known by the people of the town. He was something of a genius, and had the faculty of turning his varied knowledge to account in various ways. He was something of a wit, too. His death recalls an incident that occurred one winter when he lived at Dr. Garfield's. He was telling a story of the fellow who rode on the -"boot", of the stage coach from Fort Dodge west, and who was much the worse for liquor. As the front wheels pitched into a rut the fellow tumbled off. Getting up he said to the driver: " What made you stop?" "T didn't stop," replied the jehu. "Well," said the drunken man, "if I had known that I wouldn't have got off." Harvey claimed to have been a passenger and to have witnessed the performance. So when he had finished his story the doctor, thinking to put cold water on the narrative, sedately remarked that he had seen a full account of it in an eastern paper at the time. But Harvey was not to be so easily squelched, for he immediately added:' "Yes; I sent that report to the paper myself." *** Mr. Mathers saw some of the Kansas border troubles in his younger days. His father, with his family, moved to Kansas when Harvey was but a boy, and at a time when an abolitionist in Kansas who dared to say he was such took his life in his hands. It was when old John Brown was making things lively down there, and Harvey often saw ana knew him quite well. We have heard him describe " Ossawatamie" • Brown as one of those big-framed, determined individuals who went at his work in a manner that gave one a good idea of the man. The Mathers family was driven from Kansas chiefly by reason of their expressions on the slavery question, and their escape over the border was fraught with dangers that make an interesting story. They returned to Iowa, where a man was permitted to give utterajiff to his honest convictions without^M3angering his life. Mr. Mathers Sr, lost all the property he took with him to Kansas, but was glad to got off that cheaply.
