City. wh.fob weighed 118 pounds, and Monday he filled some out of that 80 bushel to the acre crop, and brought down the scales at 128 pounds to the bag. Four bushels of oats in an ordinary grain bag is pretty good. The annual conference comes at LeMars, Sept. 20. Rev. Bagnell and all the others will attend and find out "where they are at." Rev.

A number of delegates were chosen from Kossuth. It is now intimated that they will fill in the vacancies on the democratic state ticket and the two will fuse all along the line. Geo. Holloway will be down from Bancroft at the county fair to gobble some premiums. He has a 100-pound squash, and some corn with ears a yard long or thereabouts. He says Kossuth ought to make an exhibit such as was never seen before. Frank Nicoulin is home from South Dakota and reports 60 prairie chickens in a day's shooting. That is like old times in Kossuth when he got 130 in one day alone and John G. Smith broke the record with 156. Those days are gone in this section. Oliver Benschoter, one of the pioneers, was down from Fairmount yesterday to visit his children. He was pretty nearly dead a year ago, but is now as well as he has been for years. He does not grow old very fast. He was Algona's pioneer blacksmith. The Northwestern road will run special trains to the* state fair Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of next week.

He is a trotter and will be put in trotting races hereafter, as he cannot be relied on to pace in- a race. George Benschoter has a pretty good claim to the medal on oats this year. He rented 20 acres of his father and out in oats, and by weight he has 1,680 jushels, or over 80 bushels to the ac re. This is not a padded record but is the cold fact about one Kossuth county field this year, Can it be beatenV The Social Union club meets Friday evening at the Congregational church rarlors with the following programme: Piano solo, Miss Cornie Ingham; "Southwest, via Sunset Route," F, H, Vesper; vocal solo, Miss Lutie Wallace; "Capital and Labor," J, J.

Seats free. AH are cordially invited to attend and take part in the service. The insides have, been laterally top ~" * $? .w e ,? wjy* floors, now woodwork, and a new system are going in. The boss of the job is an expert sent out by the firm which is putting in the "plan sifter" system, and he is remodelling everything. The new process is very different from the old, and gives Algona an entirely new mill. The city council Saturday evening discovered that a new wrinkle has to be considered in laying water mains. They can get no offers of iron pipe. The hard times have caused the foundries to shut down and the dry season has set all the smaller towns to laying water mains and the result is that the supply is mortgaged ahead. Algona will not get pipe till late in the fall, but will lay all that can be had as soon as it can be had. Asa Brunson says that 40 acres of corn out of 70 on his farm in Irvington are as good as he ever had and the rest is good in places. R. B. Warren was in the Dorweiler neighborhood the first of the week and he says that corn is a big crop all the way across the flat. W. H. Conner says Plum Creek is not complaining. Marsh Stephens says Ledyard is in the center of the biggest crops yet raised in the county. Who says Kossuth is not all right? A curious case is appealed to the district court from Union township. Henry Haines' cows had a liking for the fodder on his neighbor Pollowski's land. Pollowski caught six of them and held them till his damages were assessed. The trustees awarded him $60 and he preceded to arrange for the sale of the cattle to satisfy the claim. But Henry decided that he didn't want it that way and he has appealed from the award and put up a bond for the stock. Bancroft has replaced its row of burnt buildings with a much finer lot of new ones. The new bank is of pressed brick and stone and as handsome inside with its hard, wood finish and paper as any in the state. Geo. W. Skinner's building is also, tasty and new styled, and the others are good. Bancroft has grown the past season and is now beginning to feel like a boom. The big crops in that vicinity make even the democratic brethren look happy. Mrs. Farley and Mrs. Allbright and a little boy of the latter had a narrow escape yesterday as they were coming from the depot to town in a cart. Someone on a bicycle rode up behind them and scared the horse. They could have held it in if the bicycle rider had had sense enough to stop, but he kept right by the horse which broke the lines and smashed a wheel near W. K. Ferguson's spilling the women on the road. Singularly enough no one was hurt. Some of our oitizens talked of prosecuting the bicyclist if they had known who he was. The county fair comes in three weeks. Secretary Butler says that he has been receiving a great many inquiries lately for premium lists and that out over the county more interest has been manifested than for years. He has also been receiving letters of inquiry from all over the state about the bicycle races, programmes for which will be issued in due season. The revised premium list makes some important changes, and arranges premiums more satisfactorily for exhibitors than ever before, while the races and sports will be as attractive as ever, if not more so on account of the Failure of so many counties to have fairs this year, This will bring horses and side attractions in plenty to the counties up north which have enough to make a fair out of. Sheriff Samson and Deputy Brunson Attended the harvest ball at Sexton last night in an official capacity and brought back Messrs, Goedertz and arlson, who were assisting in the festivities by peddling beer In a car on the track. Three kegs had been sold and one was left in the car when the men were taken, and J8 kegs were in the depot, but these could not betaken. The men were brought to Algona to jail and have a hearing today. They were selling openly, and sold to the sheriff not knowing who he was, A curious question is whether the Mil' waukee company is liable to $600 tax for allowing liquor sales on its premises, At the trial both men claimed that they were selling for prominent parties it Sexton, who had hired them. 'Squire Clarke fined them. «50 each and costs on a plea of guilty. WB will place our wide ribbons on sale Saturday for S6o, G, L.

THE UPPER DES MOINES reporter went to Bancroft Monday to see the women vote for the first time in Kossuth's history. Ho expected to find Thos. Sherman and Morritt Turner, E. C. Anderson and the other handsome and gallant Bancroftites escorting the ladies to the polls, Samuel Mayno expounding the law in their behalf, the Laldley brothers making a note of each one as she cast her ballot preparatory to an elaborate report in the Register, a gathering of beauty and grace such as Bancroft of all tho towns in the county can best contribute armed with votes for progress and a good water supply, and the city 'fathers each in a high collar and new suit of clothes receiving the same and seeing that they were counted. What he did see was not what he expected, but a regular old-fashioned man's election, the new law which our representatives fought, bled, and died for last winter in behalf of the fair sex declared unconstitutional and void, and all Bancroft's beauty and chivalry as far from the polls as they could get. Four \vornen tried to vote but were ruled out, so as not to invalidate the result, and water works were carried by the votes of "males" exclusively. As a matter of business it was perhaps wise to let some other town test the validity of tho new law, which is at best unlikely to be sustained. But a splendid opportunity to.make a record for Kossuth was lost by not allowing the Bancroft ladies to b3 the first to enter the sacred precincts of the polling booth. Six Mad Young Men. Ordinarily visitors to Algona for the first time wear pleasant countenances and appear to enjoy the prospect. But six young men from Sumner, Bremer county, drove in yesterday morning on whom the beauties of- nature and of our handsome city were totally lost. They are perhaps to be excused for the latter inasmuch as their only view was from the jail windows, and of the jail Itself, and that no one boasts of as a thing of beauty. They were on their way to Spirit Lake with guns, dogs, fishing tackle, and a lumber wagon, A tire had come loose on one wheel east of town and it was taken to Johnson's shop to be set. A telegram had in the meantime come from Mason City to Sheriff Samson saying that they were wanted. Hence their early retirement to the court house base' ment, where the reporter found them about dinner time. The telegram said they had stolen two bird dogs. Their denunciations of this slander were in language that could not be mlsunder* stood, and as they hud camped at Clear Lake a day and a half after leaving Mason City, the story seemed absurd, for they would have been arrested there. Their chief concern, however, was over being held, for they were due. at the lakes for Sept, 1, when chickens will be lawful sport, and the prospeQt of being late through this blunder filled them with justifiable wrath. They were all young business men at Sumner, off for a good time, and had landed in jail for the-first time in their lives, Sheriff Samson took them home to dinner. At 4;30 the officers and dog owner came from Mason City, Owe look sat' isfted the latter that his dog was not, there and be wanted to go without seeping the boys. But they oallled to him and spoke words not calculated to soothe his feelings. Then they hitched up and went their way, after six hp_W8 in the oaUaboose. They intend to sut the Mason City man for the, . ' A ,. P. V W, Fuller of Oftnajpharl that he always keeps Pr, Rin to Ife! i i-i
