Nolte's, Monday morning, made a happy home. The Grand Army boys meet tonight. John Reed will give his description o.f the battle of Nashville. A n«w music store is to be put in by Mr. Calhoun, who is now arranging for it. Algona is a good town for it. Heavy rains Friday, Saturday, and Monday nights have done all that late rain can do to brighten things up. The frame is up for John Grove's new house. He will have one of the largest as well as handsomest of the new homes of this season. Fred. Ingham went to Omaha yesterday, to enter, a law office. He will read a year and do office work preparatory to fitting himself for the practice. " - ' Wm- Ward was right. Kossuth county is a water basin with its 100 feet of yellow and blue clay. When Kossuth drys up the rest of the world will be on fire. We knew we could bring rain. We arranged to drive up into Eagle township Friday and we got soaked. A farmer said he wished we had come three weeks earlier. The Ladies' Missionary society of the will meet in the lecture room on Saturday next at 3 o'clock. Miss Morford, our returned missionary, will be with us. Bert. Edmonds , was one of the bicycle riders in the great relay race from Washington, D, C,, to Denver. At North Platte, Neb,, the riders had gained 32 hours on the schedule time, Guy Taylor sent over to Frank Chandler for a "spike," presumably part of his military head gear which he had left behind. Frank could not find it and mailed Guy a big 20 penny nail. The.machinist who is to put the new outfit into the water mill is expected here today and the mill will close down until the repairs are made. An entire new system of grinding and making flour will be adopted. The Forest City Summit says: " Chas, Isaacs was called to Algona by telegram on Friday to pitch for the Algona club in a game between that place and West Bend." Where are our Algona twirlers? A Hancock county husband has brought an action to enjoin his wife from carrying their child away from tbe house and has engaged Clarke & Cohenour, He is willing she should go but wants the. child left. Dr. McCoy says that a medal has recently been voted by congress to L, it. Galdwell, the first conductor who came into Algona on the Milwaukee road, for bravery on the battlefield during the war, The particulars are not given. Shadle & Herman are extending the field of their operations. They go soon to Hartley, where they will build a $2,300 house for Mr. Patch, a son-in- law of J. W. Tennant. It is to be a handsome home, and they will put it up in good shape, • Last Thursday to cap tbe climax with the city well the new pump was dropped and for a while it looked as though there might be trouble. But after a few days it was hooked and • drawn up again and will be in operation this afternoon. Cbairiaan Haggard desires that the yenubljoane in ea,ch township report the jiaoje of .the cojamitteeman for tbe en* suing year. It was left by tbe last con- ve»«on to be done, but th«8 far no one • reported Each township '" ^ aBW week, Sept. 3, 4, 6. It is the same play and company which opens the Algona opera house, Aug. 29. It is one of the best things on the road, and many in Algona know its merits. The Register published Sunday the secret files of a counterfeit money gang furnished by the secret service. In the list marked "suckers" we find "P. G. Schneider, Bancroft." If any counterfeit money outfit ever caught Pete for a sucker they did more than anyone else ever did. Three carloads of lumber came Monday for J. J. Wilson's new mill building. It will be three stories high and larger than the old one on the ground. Mr. Wilson will put in a big flouring mill if he receives substantial encouragement. Otherwise he will build the building and use the engine for power at his elevator. "What do you intend to exhibit at the Kossuth county fair?" is what the Bancroft Register is moved to enquire. It is now certain that the county can make as big an exhibit as it ever did, and the fair comes in about five weeks. Get ready for it. The premiums are big enough to be worth getting this year when money is close. A second sun or paralytic stroke was suffered by Mr. Seckler, who with John Sifert has been laying the tile on the county poor farm, and he is unable to work. The doctor thinks that he will get on all right by exercising proper care, but that he must rest. This leaves John to lay over that 2,400 feet of tile, no easy task. Kossuth county will have a good average crop of corn. . Some fields have been hurt, but a ride through the north end will satisfy anyone that' generally corn is all right. THE UPPEB DES MOINES reporter was in Eagle, Swea, Seneca, Fenton, and Lotts Creek townships, and if they do not have good corn then there will be none anywhere. THE UPPER DES MOINES has been ousted from its place as defender of J. J. Ryan. The Fort Dodge Post, under the new management, serves notice that it will see that he is properly represented, and calls us bad names. We shall devote our attention hereafter to Bro. Lange, who steps into the same end of the horn Bro. Ryan did and who will emerge at the same end. The pole of A. W. Moffat's carriage dropped while he was driving on State street Friday and his team ran up to St. John's blacksmith shop and turned south. Mr. Moffatt held them in as best he could but they turned the carriage in front of Hamilton's lumber yard, smashing it pretty badly and cutting his hands. They aid not get away and did not do any serious damage. The change that has come in conveniences for farming in late years is illustrated on Peter J, Walker's well-known farm in Lotts Creek. A farm better equipped would be bard to find, or a more hospitable place to be laid up at with a lame horse. Mr. Walker has had his share of " hard times" experiences, but farming is easy with him now, if good appliances for doing everything count. Letters are advertised for Frank Briscoe, Elie Burbank, Guy M. Baltuff, Misses Charley Collins, Gerd H. Folkeots, Mrs. E. O. Faas, John Henning, James Johnston, Mrs, A, G. H. Jones, Miss Anna- Klein, W. H. Langdon, Thomas Martin, J. W. Ogle, Miss Rosa Parsons, Frank Palmer, Richardson, Buck & Kirk-patrick, Miss Nancy Richardson, N. J, Stoll, Mr. and Mrs. Claten Trumble, Messrs. Philips & Waltman. Interest begins to center on county politics, The officers who go out this fall are Recorder Randall, Auditor Doxsee, Clerk Crose, and County Attorney Raymond, each of whom has held one term. The supervisors who go out are J. O, Rawson of Lotts Creek and H, 0, Hollenheok of Wesley. The remaining members of the board are C. C, Chubb of Cresco, B. F, Smith of Ramsay, and W. J. Burton of Harrison, A. W. Sterzbaoh has been over at Clear Lake three or four times lately to take charge of the music for the dances at the Oaks, tbe popular hotel, He says that tbe new orchestra will be ready to start out about Oot, 15, Tbe men have been engaged and a fine musical organization under his and G, w, Cady s management will make Algona its headquarters, They are Betting all new music and will give all e latest dances. Tbe Bancroft Register said Saturday that it had been reported tbat County Attorney Raymond bad been invited into an open saloon In a, north-end town ;o tea glass of few, and. saloon is still running. Mr. c nothing of any open saloons. If there are any and the Register knows of them they will be closed upon the proper information being given the officers. A confidence man tried the old game of beating S. B. Shadle on change yesterday. He bought a five cent piece of bologna and gave a $2 bill. Mr. Shadle made the change, when he handed out the ntckle and said he guessed ho would keep the bill. He then wanted change for $1 and managed so that Mr. Shadle had $1 and he had $1 on the table and he intended to push the pile over for the $2 bill. Mr. Shadle kept the bill and refused to be caught on this old-time game. The state crop report for the week is: The condition of corn is variable, depending upon quality of soil for retaining moisture, and shelter from full force of hot winds. There has been a material deterioration since August 1, when it was rated at 40 per cent. A large portion is now beyond help, and is being rapidly cut to save the fodder. With favorable weather in the future there is a possibility of saving one-third of an average crop from the present reduced area of less than six million acres. There was a good rain in Kossuth county June 16, and a light rain June 23, There has been practically no rain since until Friday night, Aug. 10. The wonderful ability of this country to stand drouth is shown by the healthy condition of corn in spite of such a season. From May 4 to June 16, and from June 23 to Aug. 10, without rain would absolutely dry up most parts of the United States. But that is Kossuth's record for this year, and yet the average farmer is feeling pretty well. Last Thursday the old settlers began to gather in at the home of Mrs. J. L. Paine, south of Algona, and the day was spent in a social reunion which celebrated her 70th birthday. Mrs. Paine was presented with a handsome book and was the recipient of many good wishes for many returns of the day. Mrs. Paine was one of the first to come to Kossuth and every pioneer will rejoice with her that her three score and ten find her in such good health, and so pleasantly surrounded. A curious law suit is set for hearing next week. D. Hine while at the lakes sent a box of fish to J. J. Cordingley's meat market by express. Cordingley had all the fish, he wanted and did not take the box. Express Agent Smith told Thos. Bennett to take the fish and pay what they were worth and the express, Bennett sold the fish. Mr, Hine now sues him for $4. Attorney Raymond prosecutes and Sullivan & McMahon defend, and 'Squire Clarke will hold the scales of justice, While driving in from Sexton last Thursday Mrs. Marion Hedrick stopped her horse to let her dog out of the buggy on the road east of John Gilbride's, The horse jumped while she was leaning and she fell on her head, her dress catching so that she was dragged a short distance, The horse went to Mr, Gilbride's and was stopped and a team sent back for Mrs, Hedrick, who was left insensible. With rest and care she has recovered from the effects of the fall and will have no permanent scar on her face, but she was quite badly shaken up and injured, Some 20 years ago T, P, Bender, whose elopment is the sensation at Spencer, came to Algona and joined a partner in the management of the Cliff hotel. He afterwards ran a, grocery store a year in the Russell block, but did not make much money here. He then went to Spencer, He and his family often visited in Algona and were highly esteemed. Mrs. Bender is a very handsome and attractive woman and a fine family of children have grown up, Mr. Beadier is 48 years of age, and was the head man of the firm, of Bender Bros. It is hinted that be was in an escapade like the present before coming to Algona, The old Harry Walkley farm east of town is rapidly becoming a model place under Wm. K, Ferguson's taanage- ment. He has spent a lot of money in new buildings and in tiling and bis crops and stock speak fop themselves. One feature is worthy of note, It is a water tank above ground whicb be is putting atwo loot coating of saw dust out to keep from freezing in the winter. This gives him wa|ep all over his farm. He call? the place »»Willow Lane," although he is very wisely burn* Lng out bis wilipws. He has a model ben bouse, model pig bouse, fine large barn, scales, corn cribs, machine, etc,, all painted and kept in repair, IB fern if a, great home of C. L. Lund. While in Copenhagen Mr. Baker hud known of Mr. Lund's father, who is a professor in the national university and a member of the parliament, and the visit was very enjoyable to him because of the reminder of hia year in Denmark. He went over Mr. Lund's farm and was so favorably impressed with it that he secured details for an article which he will send to the papers in Copenhagen to show the old-country people how things are done in the wild west. He says that Mr. Lund's establishment compares favorably with the old, well- kept estates in Denmark, and 'that in many ways his methods of farming are much ahead.

About 7,000 soldiers were in line in the march, and fully 10,000 outsiders were in Des Moines to witness it. The old flags wore brought out after 30 years, and tears' were shod when they were first seen and again as they were handed to Gov. Jackson to be finally sealed in the cases prepared for them. At the meeting of the 21st D. A. Haggard, who had been. regimental color bearer, was elected to bear the flag in the parade. A letter from ex- Gov.
