The coming teachers' institute will begin the first week in August and last three weeks. It will be especially interesting on account of lecturers and instructors. Henry Cook, who lives south of the fair ground and who lost his house by fire a few weeks ago, had his barn burn up Sunday morning. He has hard luck with fires, Ed. Johnson has rented the Fred Waterhouse home and will move to town next week. Mrs. Johnson's health is very poor and it is hoped that rest will benefit her. A newcomer on the Conner farm, Mr, Sever, was kicked on his left breast by a horse he was leading to water yesterday. No bones were broken but he was seriously hurt. A genial thunder shower Sunday night has caused all vegetation to put on its beet look for May. This county never reached that month before in better shape, All we need is more rain, The Bancroft Register says that John Winkel is tracking Kossuth and has reason to bejieve that he will not go lame again. He will have it out with some of the new running horses this fall. Prof. A. J. Lilly is in Hancock coun the school houses, He says that by September there will not be a failure to comply with the law in the county. This Is as it should be. The new river bridge at St. So. is to set on iron tubes filled with concrete after piles have been driveti to make them firm. It will be of iron and is estimated to cost about $10 a running foot. It will be worth ten of the old fashioned wood bridges. Ledyard is to have a new brick block and a bran new bank beginning July 1. All the Dunlap brothers 'and Marsh Stephens are the promoters. A.

This will make a library of some 1,200 volumes open to the public. The Monday club keep possession of the books but the reading room society will handle and control them. Geo. E. Boyle says that McFarland is in the lead for governor and he will not be'surprised to see him nominated early. His conclusion is the result of talking with the republicans at Des Moines last week. He is still in the field himself, however. Kbssutb's candidate will not drop out till the last ballot is counted. A deer hunting party consisting of H. E. Rist, Geo. E. Boyle, B. W. Haggard and C. C.

Fred Koepka has bought the corner opposite for $800 and will build at once, the store t& be occupied by D. R. Crowell of Bancroft. Frank Jenkinson showed us a cowhide tanned for a robe, which he had Saturday, good enough for anybody. It was from a black cow and makes a very handsome robe. And Dan Fraser has had the hide of one of his big mules tanned, and that, too, makes a good robe. Shadle & Son sent them to Sioux City, where the work was done. Geo. W. Skinner of Bancroft wanted to help Geo. Holloway hold the hose while the water works were tested up in the northern metropolis, but while fooling slipped and feU in such a way as to present the broadest part of his pants to the nozzle. It is said that he considers the Bancroft system perfect and thinks that there is ample pressure in the standpipe. A. L. Seeley has a cane with a history. It is very handsomely carved and was made by a Dakota man for President Cleveland. But just about the time he was ready to send it the president rescinded President Arthur's order opening the reservation and the man got mad and kept his cane, Mr. Seeley's brother came into possession of it and gave it to him. bank; Hawkins & Jones, lawyers; J.H, Warren, UPPER DBS MoittES. This is the full list and of it only Ingham & Smith today live in Aigoaa. With the paper was also a slip written by James Mclntyre, who made the ball, giving the date of his work, June 1, 1873. He was Algona's pioneer hardware merchant, and died a few years later, Farmer Joslyn looked at his pasture on the river bottom back of E. P. Keith's, E. McWhorter's and others not long ago, and sagely concluded from his former experience that the grass crop would be greatly stimulated by a fire. Accordingly one day last week he armed himself with matches and having decided that fire could not run over the short stubble of the adjacent farms, spent some time in firing one whole side of the forty without looking back. At length, however, he straightened up to congratulate himself on the good work he was doing and gazed about. At one place the flames were moving over Keith's land like a race horse, and at another were assailing McWhorter's pasture and pasture fence. From outside sources we learn that Mr. Joslyn's activity in putting out his fire so far surpassed his activity in setting it that the former is hardly worth mentioning. He admits himself that he spent 16 minutes very uncomfortably wieldtsrg hazel brush, his mind conjuring up pictures of buildings and stacks in fliauies up over the hill. Money.

Friis were comin-? from Germania to AJgona Monday, they caught a young jack rabbit about six inches iong, They didn't pick it up as they would a lost pocketbook, but only after performing the greyhound act with vigor, Friis ran till he had enough and then Warburton took the trail and captured the little racer on a piece of ploughing. Even a little jack rabbit can run, Ex-Senator Ingalls showed his good nature and genial qualities when he learned that the return train on the Milwaukee road had been abondoned and that the people expecting to come for his lecture from the west were left at home, He told the managers to pay all expenses out of the receipts of the house and give him what was left if there was not enough to pay the $200, He got somewhat less than that sum, but left many friends in Algona. Last fall the cyclone took the iron pump out of a 65 foot well on the Du» rantfai'Wi This curious phenomenon has occupied some t,j me Jn Henry Darant's thought, and as he is a careful etudes* of meteorology, hie conclusion is interesting, His theory is that the cyclone, fprmed a vacuum over the well and that the air i« the well shot the pump and tubing out as a cork ie shot out of »n air gun, He gays that corks have been drawn frpqj empty bottles in pyoloaei, aefl that often brick buildings fly. out as though blown up by powder.
