Another runaway accident brings our usually staid and dignified Algona family horses into suspicion as a class. Monday Prof. Lilly's horse started with Mrs. Lilly and the little boy, and coming by W. K. Ferguson's tipped them out. Both were badly bruised and shaken up, but no bones were broken. ' The carriage and harness were unhurt. Harry Dodge was selling apples in Bancroft last week, hauling them from Algona. The Register says: "He says Bancroft has the smartest and quickest set of youngsters he ever saw, • and he had to shovel the apples out of their reach most lively to get his share of them." If the boys get ahead of Harry they are good ones. : Fred. Nicholson at Burt is the first '..formerto go into ensilage.

Walter Walker will be interested in the harrow escape his bicycle lately had from the hands of the spoiler. He rode up to his study and dismounted and had left his iron steed only a few moments when a tramp took it, A policeman saw the theft and gave chase in a buggy and for a while it was bicycle against horse. But a tramp, of course, could not be expected to hold out long and a few bullets about his ears stopped him. Judge Carr wilt hold the October term of (ourtat Algona and it is his intention to then resign. He wanted to go before but the first case to be argued is the one involving that $8,000 judgment against the • Minneapolis railway for killing Gorman, in which the attorneys forgot that it was to be tried and did not attend, and he is so well acquainted with it already that the attorneys would not hear to having it turned over to a new judge. Court opens Oct. 2. The experiment station at Ames sends out a bulletin which calls attention to a weed that has taken Algona. It is prickly lettuce, a tall weed of the milk weed type with a little yellow flower. It is on every lawn in town. The bulletin says " it is one of our worst weeds." The only way to get rid of it is to cut it below the ground before it seeds. Next season war must be waged on it and on the dandelion or the lawns will be ruined. Harry Sheets was rejected by the Annapolis examining board on his third trial and came back to Algona last week. This board said that in addition to his throat trouble his heart was- affected. As neither of the two previous boards had found any traces of heart trouble Harry thinks that the attack is very sudden. He does not take much stock in the fairness of the boards, especially as very sickly looking cadets get in all right if their relatives happen to outrank the examiners in the service.

The claim was not large but Kirkhart said he \vo,uld law it and finally put up a deposit to cover the claim and will come back and have it out in court. The best feature of his show is the rifle shooting by the couple who ran the gallery in Algona a few weeks ago, and who were secured at Bancroft. A good band also furnishes music. C. L. Lund bought a short-horn bull at Des Moines last week out of the Martin Plynn herd, one of the best in the west. The bull lacks a little of one year, and was shipped Monday. Mr. Plynn and M. O'Rourke worked together in early days on the railroad, and Plynn had the building of the Northwestern to Eagle Grove. He is president of a bank in Des Moines, a very wealthy man, and breeds shorthorns as a recreation. He has imported some of the best and most ex- joensive ever brought to this country. Prof. Gilchrist wrote an obituary notice of Prof. Reed for the Spencer News. He.said: "As a teacher and educator, he must be ranked with the best. His scholarship was much in excess of his modest claims; for he was broad in his culture and thorough and exact in his favorite studies. As a teacher he saw the true principles of education very clearly and brought them into active bearing over bis classes. Indeed, his treatment led out the mental development of his pupils in a positive manner and, possibly, at a sacrifice of a temporary popularity, but eyentually to his real praise and reputation," ' The musicians of the town were out in numbers at A. W. Moffatt's last Friday evening and organized a good club which will • meet every two weeks hereafter. The officers are: President, Miss Randall; vice president, Miss Ranks; secretary, Fannie Moffatt, The programme committee is Dr. Rist, Mrs. Vesper and Bowyer. The committee on bylaws is Geo. Hamilton, Misses Jones and Ingbam, The chief rule of membership in that everyone shall do what he is told to without any excuses about sore thrpat, lack of practice, don't know anything to play, all my pieces are old as the hills, and so' on. The club meets at Mrs, B.owyer'8 next, Col. Foster of the Fourth regiment praises the military boys very highly, He has been talked pf for the brigadier generalship, soon to be vacant, but says: "I would rather b e colonel of the Fourth regiment than tp have any other position in, the state service, I ao not believe that Iowa has ever bad 'of trppps so thoroughly Jl organized, s « « .._.,.. wd go efficient every particular a» the Fourth .t m ~~i ''T«T „„..!/! ba ftgl p ure( j t jj at I will sell you better FLOUR and other mill products for less money than you can buy elsewhere, or no money.
