Prof. GilchHst's New Book—Phil. Haftha Will Lecture-Julius Pleth Again in Kossuth—Items. Algona bus won a ball game over at West Bend. The Journal writes it up in spicy fashion: The Algona base ball club came over last Saturday for the purpose of haying & friendly con test with the local club and although the West Benders had called to their assistance some of the best talent in several of the neighboring townships they wore not "in it" at any stage of the game. Mulroney, the cyclone twirler of Nevada township, was in the box for the locals but ho lasted only a few innings when. Mr. Webb, he of Coopertown fame, was called to assist the Kossuth county boys in fattening their batting averages, which position he successfully filled, the visitors only making about two dozen scores off his delivery. An angular youth named Davis faced the West Bond batsmen and they "each and every one of them" were victimized by his erratic twisters. Mulroney struck out eight men, Webb three and Davis fourteen. All through, the contest was too one- sided to be interesting, the locals only making one score before the last inning while the boys from Col. Sessions' bailiwick placed thirty to their credit. The locals pullod up a few notches in the last inning and the final score was: Algona, 31; West Bend, 7. The Algona boys are a gentlemanly lot of fellows and they put up a good article of ball, too. A return game will be played in the near future, probably Aug. 15, and we hope the local managers will get together a more formidable aggregation than the outfit which (mis-) represented West Bend on the base ball field last Saturday. Let us not remain a "has been" In the base ball arena. Prof. Gllchrlst's New Book. The following dispatch from Cedar Falls was found in the Marshalltown Times-Republican of the 7th of August: Prof. J. C. Gilchrist, the former president of our normal, is taking a rest from school work for a year, and between occasional lectures Is occupied at his pleasant farm home near Laurens, Iowa, In writing a "Treatise on the Science of Education and Art of Teaching." An experience of thirty-five years In educational work, most of that time in instructing others in the art of teaching, his fitness and well known enthusiasm in his chosen profession, especially qualify him for the production of such a book. It will contain from 300 to 400 pages. A more thorough knowledge of the art of educating others, for which there is a growing demand and need will render this work valuable as an aid to teachers. Mr. and Mrs. Gilchrlst are enjoying excellent health. Miss Maude is in the midst of her eighth year as a teacher in Wellesley College; lelland has entered upon his second term as superintendent of schools of Pocahontas county; Will has married an estimable lady and lives at Havelock; Fred has entered upon the legal profession and is doing well at Laurens as a member of the law firm of Helsell & Gllohrist, Mr. Helsell being prominently named for one of the members of the code revision commission; Miss Grace, at the age of 18, is a teacher in the public schools of Algona, and Miss Norma is a student at Cornell College, Julius IMeth's Return, Julius Pleth, our whilom land man, has been visiting at Armstrong, The Journal says: Mr. Pleth was in the real estate business in Kossuth county until last January when, owing to some poor trades or mismanagement of some kind, he became financially embarassed and left the country. He informed ue that he intended to locate at Ledyard and again embark in the real estate and loan business, Mr. Pleth is a good hustler and we hope to see him on his feet again in a few months, _ Ben. Smith Badly Bruised. Supervisor B, F. Smith started from Ramsay to UermanJa last week Monday in a spring wagon in which he had a Chester White pig in a crate, la turning on an uneven piece of ground the crate swayed, and to keep it from falling Mr. Smith turned in the seat and grabbed, it; in so doing his whole weight was tbvowq on one end of tUe seat which tipped up and landed him on hU head and right shoulder' on th e ground. The Bancroft Register says no bones were broken, Whittewpre Js in the way pj figes, ing under a heavier load of stimulant thati they could conveniently carry. They persisted in monkeying -with the meat wagon, which at 3 a. m. was ready to start on a country journey, after which they were unceremoniously invited to try the hospitality of the cooler until daylight. 'They were brought before the mayor, who fined them $10 apiece and released them. The mayor should give them about $50 each next time, _ i _^_^ A Northern Border Brigade Veteran. John W. Hewitt, who located near St. Jo in 1860, died Aug. 4 at Livermore, aged 74 years. He was postmaster where Livermore is before there was a town, the office/- being known as the Lotts Creek office. The Gazette says: In 1803 he was in the state service under Capt. Ingham, about the time of the Now Ulm massacre, and for a year assisted in the protection of the frontier between Jackson, Minn., and Esthervillo, Iowa. He was the father of ten children, all of whom are living and all being here at the funeral with the exception of James, who is in Colorado. Phil. Hanna Invited to .Lecture. Hon. Phil. C. Hanna received an invitation last week from Win. L. Scruggs, ox-mi nlster to Venezuela, to deliver a lecture before the Business Men's association at Atlanta, Georgia. 'Mr. Scruggs was at one time editor-in-chief of the Atlanta Constitution, and the people there are considerably interested in Vonezuellan affairs. The Gazette says It is uncertain when Mr. Hanna will avail himself of the invitation, but it is evident that the lecture field is one of the places ho should fill at some tinu in his life, and the sooner he begins the sooner his hearers can begin to enjoy the benefits of it. Killed By Well Gas. Frank Dunham was sinking a well on the Daniel Pierce "Orphan's Home" farm near Estherville last week. He lowered a lantern in the well and it went out. Then he had his assistant lower him to .see what was the matter. Before ho had descended many feet he shouted to the man at the top to raise him up, but the deadly gas called choke damps, which was in the well, so quickly overcame him that he lost his hold and died immediately. The Estherville Vindicator says Dunham was an industrious young man. He leaves a wife and three children, the youngest a week old. Bidgood Is 3Vo Good. Constable Flynn of Buffalo Center was in Kossuth chasing one Bidgood, who was travelling with a mortgaged team that was wanted, Bidgood was boring wells and got away with a team the state bank holds a mortgage on. The constable followed him to Wesley, then to Ledyard and finally found him at Ggrmania, where he seized the mortgaged property on Wednesday and brought them back. The Tribune says: The man is clearly a dead-beat of the worst sort and several parties in town find themselves the worse off for having dealt with him. Huraboldt'B Fast Horses, In the Peoria, 111., races last week wo horses from Humboldt made records that put them in the fast class. 1 Vyzant," owned by W. L. Bossing at Bode, won a trotting race in 2:18, and "Rapid Transit," who trotted at the Kossuth county fair two years ago and who is owned by Geo. H. Shellen- aerger, won a race in straight heats in 2:22. And now they say that a third horse owned in Gilinore City can 3eat either of them. Vyzant and Rapid Transit are booked for the hicago races' this week, and may both enter the state fair races at Des Moines. Will JJeave Algonn.
