Progtamme of the Horse Races for Tomorrow—Other Matters Concerning the County Fair. Letters have been received insuring • the attendance of Bert ''Edmonds and Byrd Moore from DOB Moines for tomorrow's bicycle races and also of several other good riders. It is certain that the best sport ever 'given at - a county fair in the way of racing 1 will boon tomorrow. Among the riders coming are H. L. Ilgenfitz of Cedar Rapids and W. J. Sutcliffe of Waterloo. Sutcliffe won the five mile race at Mason City in one of the most sensational contests in the state. About half way through the race he ran into the fence and was tipped over but not injured. When he got righted he had lost about 500 yards but he got on his wheel and started on and came in ahead of .the crpwd. Letters of inquiry have been received from as far away as Ottumwa, and if we have good weather the bicycle meet will be one of the best held in the state. The bicycle record is now a mile in 1:54, considerably faster than the pacing horse record, and a bicycle race finish is about as exciting as anything usually seen. THE BICYCLE RACE. PROGRAMME. Tomorrow the races will be: Half mile, open — First, gold, medal, $20; second, gold medal, $9; third, Lamson luggage carrier, $1. Mile open— First, gold medal, $20; second, gold medal, $10; third, bicycle belt, $1. . Five mile, open— First, gold medal, $25; second," gold medal, $10; third, Billings wrench, $1. Friday there will be one race for Kossuth county riders exclusively as fellows: •Mile, Kossuth county riders— First, gold medal, $15; second, gold medal, $6; third, gold medal, $4; fourth, bicycle shoes, $1, • , RULES AND REGULATIONS. These races will be called on the first thing in the afternoon before the track is marred by the horses, The medals are all very handsome and will be engraved with the winner's name. Thos. F. Cooke will have general supervision and the rules of the L, A. W. will be strictly followed. Dr. Garfield, F, H. Vesper, and others will assist in the starting, etc., and judges will be selected as in other state contests. Dressing places will be arranged under the ampttheatre. All bicycle riders in the county should enter the county race as a matter of amusement even if they do not expect to win. The way to make a success of a county fair is for everybody to do something, owned in the county, entrance 10 per cent., purse $30. HORSE JUDGE. A. C. Brown of Mason City has been secured to award the premiums on the horses. He is well qualified for the place. WESLEY HAD A PIEE. Otber Fair Features. Saturday evening Secretary Butler had entries for 36 horse stalls, 80 ca'ttle pens, 11 sheep pens, and 14 hog pens, and he got to work at once to build additional sheds for all kinds of stock. The entries have been coming in ever since and the stock exhibit will be the best the county, has ever seen, THE NEW POULTRY HOUSE. Monday the new poultry house was finished. It has 45 coops where the feathered beauties can keep their plumes from being draggled in the rain, and where they can stretch their pecks and crow, If all our fancy poulterers have their stock out the ehow will be a fine one.

WESLEY, Sept. 17.— Our town was visited with another fire Monday. Mr. and Mrs. Hofer were away and left two of their small children at the house. The youngest, but three years old, got hold of some matches and set fire to a stack of hay which was close to the barn, which was soon consumed with three head of hogs in a pen close by the barn. The loss will not exceed $200. Mrs. S. Gray and son, Homer, spent Sunday at Clear Lake with Grandma Gray. G. M. Butts returned from Chicago Monday, where he has been on business for the past week. A very bad and painful accident happened to Fred Bolenious of Prairie township Monday morning. About 8 o'clock he and his family was returning home from his brother-in-law's, Mr. Seaman, when they got near Mr. Kennedy's place north of Wesley the pole of the buggy came down and run into the ground, and the team started to run away. Mr. Bolenious was thrown out on his head and shoulders I and has been unconscious ever since. Drs. Kenney and Hill were called, but have little hopes of his recovery. Geo. Schnieder has moved his family from Brewster, Minn., and is now occupying his house here in Wesley. Our cjty cooler was turned over one night last week by some party or parties, and our city marshal had to get his team out next day to turn it back in shape again, however, there was no damage done -to it. We do not know who had 'a hand in doing the mischief, but we once heard it said that it is a very dirty bird that will belittle their •own nest. Studer and- Mathies are building additions to their store room in order to have more room for their fall and winter stock of goods. L. E. Sanford and Frank Shram are taking a tour through the southern part of Iowa, and northern Missouri to see if they can find a suitable location to move to. We have not the least doubt but that the boys will come home fully satisfied that northern Iowa is the best place they have seen yet. Last Monday there was seven covered wagons or prairie schooners passed through town going east which reminded some of our old settlers of early days when this was the usual way people traveled when coming west, No doubt they are from Dakota or Nebraska, where everything is dried up, and have come back to fertile Iowa, where there is plenty and to spare. Tbos. Gray and Frank Heal write their friends here that they will leave Liverpool for home the 29th. The boys have, had about all of the old country they ; can stand for once. The republicans of Wesley held their primaries last Saturday to select six delegates to the county convention. One of the delegates informed us that it was a Doxsee delegation, If so, good enough. Mr, Doxsee is a good official and should receive the nomination for auditor for the second term. Grain has been coming on the mar* ket lively of late, Our grain buyers haven't had time to visit with one another for over a month, and even Charley hasn't had time to take any one out for a ride since school has commenced this term yet, The grain buy? ere at Sexton sent up a wail here the other day that made the natives tremble, but yet the sun rises in the east and sets in the west and the old , world moves right along, John Patterson of Waverly is here pressing hay he bought early in the season. Elmer Thomas is doing the pressing for him. R. Tr«ndaU,'the line man for Bender Bros., was here Saturday looking after the hay and grain business, . , W1 J 1 F< K d an <J Wif 9 a r e visiting friends at Pee Moines this week.

Nominations Made Will Meet with General Approval in the County—All Was Harmonious. For Recorder ................. M. F. RANDALL For Clerk of Courts .............. B. F. GROSE For County Attorney ........ J. C. RAYMOND For Auditor ............ ...... .F. D. CALKINS For Supervisors ..... |£; ^H&NBACH There has been some dispute as to whose hide has been hung on the Muldoon bridge. It seems now that Doxsee and Rawson have a fair share of the cuticle to be seen on that famed structure. LuVerne came up for a man of her own to boss the further construction of it and got him, and in the scramble both Doxsee and Rawson failed to make connections. The convention was good natured. Geo. E. Boyle made an ideal chairman and Ernest Bacon as reading clerk and Jake Freeh as recording clerk kept the tally straight. The first debate was over letting LuVerne have eight men to smoke the candidate's cigars and eat the candidate's apples and only cast four votes. The convention by a vote of 76 to 29 decided that as they were likely to prove full delegates at the former they couldn't allow them to be half delegates at the ballot and ruled out the last half of the delegation, although there is precedent for admitting extra men in' a convention. The voting then began and Randall, Grose and Raymond were unanimously renominated. The" first ballot for auditor was declared informal and stood: Doxsee 43, Calkins 52, Cotton 7. The second ballot stood Doxsee 49 Calkins 53. This 'gave Calkins the nomination. The first ballot for supervisor resulted: Rawson 36, Barton 57, Keith 6, Wright 5, and Mr. Barton was nominated. The second ballot stood Hollenbach 56, Keith 47, and Hollenbach was chosen. At the close of the balloting Mr. Calkins was called and made an appropriate speech of thanks and was heartily applauded. Cigars and apples were plenty and good feeling prevailed. THE COUNTY COMMITTEE. Following are the township committeemen for the year: E. Teller, C, M. Doxsee, H. A, Paine, E. V. Swotting, S. Nicholson, J. M. Gray, O. A. Potter, R, E. Jeanson, W. C. Petit, S. Mayne, Wm, Shrader, G. S. Wright, E. O. Fitz, J. B. Benston, C. B. Hutchins, N. C. Taylor, W, A. Wright, Hugh Smith, W. F.

Goodrich. • money for short time chattels. Real estate money as low as the lowest and plenty of it at the office of N. J. Skinner. THE CITY CIRCUIT, The bicycle medals are on display a Bowyer's. They are a handsome lot, Regular meeting of James d. Taylo W, R. C. Thursday evening, Sept. 20 Next Wednesday evening the'comecl "Jane" will be given. Everybod' will enjoy it. ' Prank Jenkinson of Union shows 1 th proper spirit. He had 22 entry card for the faiivMondny. The Episcopalian Sunday schoo scholars had a fine picnic at C. L Lund's one day last week. We have found another $200 and $600 to place on town loans. Must be taken by the 15th of this month. Plenty of Work is progressing at the wate mill and the new machinery will be in in a couple of weeks or less. The Woodward company is putting on good plays at the opera house this week. ' They are good players. Marriage licenses have been issued to Olof Barquist and Anna Sweiver Jos. A. Habeger and Louesa Long. F. M. Taylor and E. H. Clarke are nominated for justices in Algona E. Tellier and E. L.- Tuttle for constables. J. O. Rawson's defeat for supervisor will be generally regretted. He has been one of the best members the county has had. Mrs. Quick received word last week from Colorado that she had fallen heir to property amounting to $3,000, which she will soon get. The school board met Monday in annual session and elected John Reed treasurer and C. M. Doxsee secretary for the ensuing year, * The Amateur Musical club will meet with Mrs. E. G. Bowyer next Friday evening at 7:30 o'clock. All members are requested to be present. Chairman Chubb is going to have a specimen of Canada thistle on exhibition at the fair grounds. A great many people never saw one. Digging has begun on the new water mains. The first ditch runs on McGregor street from Dr. McCoy's east to J. E. Stacey's and will bo soon completed. The city water is now being applied with marked effect to the court yard lawn and Mat. is bringing a blooming green to the faded grass. The pipes were laid last week. Chairman Chubb has been supervisor for the south half of the county before and now he will have to be for the west half. He- will be furthest west of any man on the board, A surgical operation was performed on Aug. Sterzbach's hand by Dr. Morse, and he is now up and about again. It is likely that his hand will not be stiffened by his accident. Leander Barton, the new candidate for supervisor, came to Humboldt county soon after the war, and is an old settler, He has been a member of the board there several terms, He owns farms in Kossuth and moved to LuVerne two years ago, where' he has one of the finest homes in town. He is spoken well of by all who know him. Alex. Brown informs us that there is a big patch of Canada thistles on the farm west of Irvington owned by Marsh Stephens. When Marsh gets his hay all stacked we must get him down to look at them. They have supervisor districts in Humboldt and Wright counties, and Geo. W. Hanna, who is a strong advocate of them for Kossuth, will discuss the question for our readers during the campaign. The petrified wood found by Frank Slagrlo at Clear Lake is the finest specimen we havo ever seen, much better than those 'from the Arizona fossil forests. E. H. Slagle had a piece down town yesterday. Shadle & Herman are over at Hartley these days building a house for J. W. Tennant's son-in-law. It is a copy of F. M. Taylor's new house on a little larger scale. Wm. Delaney went Monday night to lath it. Joe. Grose was indicted at Humboldt for trading a " blue sky" note for a horse. His trial will come on this fall and he will be defended by Geo. E. Clarke. The charge is obtaining property by false pretenses. We hear of a foot race between J. W. Sullivan, Ike Finnell, and J. J. Ryan, which came out in the order above given. The fair association will give them a chance to try it over if they will accept anything reasonable. Jas. Hofius is home from the Black Sills. He found the details about his prother's death as before reported, "•le says that country is burned up and f the people here complain they don't enow what they are talking about. Guy Mantor isn't a professional umper, but when W. L. Joslyn challenged him Monday he went out and cleared 11 feet on the level. That was about five feet more than Bro. "oslyn was equal to, on his own admission, Michael Riebhoff was in town one day last week. He is 88 years old, but till hale and hearty. Uncle Heckart s 89 and the two lead Kossuth.'s old itizens, Both have been pioneers, Arhich shows that pioneering is not unhealthy with all its hardships. C. B. Matson has completed taking he school census and finds in the ndependent district 415 males and 404 emales, a total of 819. In the in- orporated town there are 865 males nd 361 females. The total for the istrict is 15 more than ever before, A disturbance occurred Sunday night n the north . part of town which if orrectly reported is not creditable to lie young men engaged, One was tabbed with a pitch fork and another truck over the head with a beer ottle. A number of women were in je melee. If nothing further occurs requiring eference THE UPPER DBS MOINES 111 say nothing about the Second 'ard caucus except that 0.
