Bancroft.will test her water works system tomorrow and has invited committees from neighboring towns to be ; present. T. H. Conner says the new brick block at Burt will be as handsome as any but the two stone front buildings in Algona. Pearl Pugh has quit work at E. G. Bowyer's and rumors of a new jewelry store in Algona are current. Nothing is decided as yet. Frank McNall, for several 'years an UPPER DES MOINES printer, has been in St. Augustine, Fla., for two years working at his trade. Mrs. Lon Sessions has bought 17 acres of pineapple ground on Lake Worth in Florida and expects to make her home there. Her health is improving. The Monday club library is now in the reading room. It adds very materially to the collection there and gives Algona a first class public resort. Invitations are out for a dance this evening at the court house, the Cedar Rapids orchestra furnishing the music. . It has hot teen l&ng since the sale of " U,, S. & M," clothing wls confined largely to the great city stores, where ittiolds first place as the most artistic clothifag made. The fact that it can be bought here as cheaply as ojther goods, and in most cases for less money, is dae to the enterprise of The New England, which ia placing it wlthih the reach of all who appreciate fine gdods. We belieVe there is nothing too good for the people. fiuftDAi,!/ & Co. WALKER BROS. day morning itt child btrth, The baby is alive. The trouble was a peculiar uremlc poisoning, not at all common. Mr. Tubtas' father is a hotel keeper ftt Burfc, A week from next Monday is the date set for the great fair ground* bee to move the fence. From the rumors about supplies there ought to be a very large gathering from all the country round. It will be a great day if the weather iff favorable. G. W. Cady is drilling a band these days and expects to have the boys in trim for Memorial day. Algona ought to have a good band and "Pat" is equal to teaching them all there is to learn, The company organized last year should be supported in getting up a first-class band. We regret to hear that among the most conspicuous investors in watches at the fakir show a week ago were some of the leading opponents of a public library. One gentleman in particular who read the law all day against the library, bought two of the watches. A Sioux City paper called Public Opinion comes this week with several columns devoted, to berating our old time J. H. Quick, who has been prosecuting county officials over there. The way of the reformer is always a rough one, but J. H. has the proper qualities for the-job. When the street sprinkler is running it takes the city pump its full 10 hours a day to supply the demand upon the well, Mr. Horan says, and then it gets behind a little. As the demand increases with dry weather the pump will have to be run nights once or twice a week. A. D. Clarke is putting in the 100 acres he is breaking east of John Gilbride's to beans. The' boys go along behind the breaker and drop the seed and the next furrow covers. He thinks that beans will prove more profitable than flax and are more easily and quickly put in. C. D. Pettibone, who keeps tab on the weather now, reports that during the heaviest rainfall last week 1 1-5 inches of water came in 28 minutes. In all we got 2} inches of water, of which 1.85 fell in two hours. The one shower was so remarkably heavy that he ran out and measured it by itself. PHYSICIAN AND SURGEON, Iowa* W. P,, 4ND PfflW ovg?

Bishop Perry, accompanied by Archdeacon McElroy, will visit Algona, Saturday, the 11 inst., and will hold divine service in St. Thomas' church at 11 a. rn. The Epworth league business meeting will be held Friday evening at the church. All are requested to be present. Business of importance will be transacted. The violin playing of Aug.

The anniversary exercises of the Woman's Foreign Missionary society to have been held last.Sunday evening at the Methodist church will be held next Sunday evening. Last Friday's storm proved to be a big cyclone over west in Sioux county and did great damage in Ireton, the home of an Algona girl who was Miss Emma Henderson. Bowman, the blue sky man, who got two years at Clarion for one of his deals, is out and writes tp Algona parties that he is helping in the sberlfl'^offioe at that place. When it rains it rains in this country, 'Squire Raymond sat out in the storm at Irvingtou last Wednesday and he says ho never before but once saw water pome as it did then. The opera house company met last evening and elected officers for the en< suing year, Dr. Savers is pre " B. W, Haggard, vice president; The tickets for the Remenyi concert will be on sale at the postoffice tomorrow. The admission is 50 cents, reserved seats 75. The concert is given in the Congregational church because the opera house was engaged for the next night and two shows could not be put in so near each other. little more, being ft little thibher than formerly. . C. L. Lund intends to ship in a load of phosphate used for fertilizing and try it on a corn field this season. It will cost him $16 a ton and a ton wilt cover about 20 acres. He says that if it acts here as in the old country it is a good investment. The phosphate beds found in Florida are the source of supplies, and great amounts are sent abroad from there. At the grand army meeting Saturday evening Dr. McCoy, J. C. Raymond, and P, L, Slagle were appointed a committee to arrange for memorial day. Algona will have her usual elaborate observance. It is expected that a speaker will be secured atf the Clinton meeting Dr. McCoy is now attending. A complete programme will be published at an early date. If Fourth of July is to be celebrated at Algona this year now is the time to start the ball before the other towns make plans of their own. There is no doubt that they would be glad to come in and help make a big-central celebration, and Algona has not had one for five years. Someone with an ambition for hard work and willing to take his pay in glory should begin, August Zahlten while clearing out some of the rubbish'left by last fall's cyclone recently hit a stick with his ax and it flew up and struck his eye. The inflammation has gone but the sight of the eye is nearly destroyed. Last week in knocking a box to pieces Dr. McCoy had a piece fly into his eye, making a very ugly mark. He also had a narrow escape from losing his sight. Henry Durant says that about the 27th Mercury, Mars, Venus, Jupiter and the moon can all be seen together with one glass. It is a remarkable conjunction of heavenly bodies. When asked if in his opinion these movements of the planets affect our climate he replied, " no more than a cow crossing the street." He has a glass strong enough to show all the chief features of the heavens and is spending considerable study on astronomy. Grocery Trade, v 5 !

The plat is filed by John and Augusta Meier and is in the middle of Lu Verne township on the Minneapolis & St. Louis railroad, Hanna starts out modestly with three blocks and two streets, First and Second. D. T. Smith has- removed the U. S. express office to the A. D. Clarke building on Dodge street, where he has a splendid location and a vault for the safe keeping of valuable packages. Now if the company would put on a new express wagon it would prove a valuable advertisement for their business. It is now John Grove, postmaster. Last night's Sioux City Journal contains the news that he is appointed to succeed J. H. Cook at Hobart, the latter being removed. The administration is having hard sledding but it still finds time to attend to the republican postmasters. John will make a good Nasby. Chairman Chubb has been up in the northwest part of the county. He says three stea.m breakers and any number of the old fashioned kind are turning up the sod, Gov, Larrabee has rented his lands at $1 an acre on five year leases, and new farms are springing up every day. The renters build their own buildings, C. Byson is still improving on the old Moore farm. He will build a barn this spring 84x54 feet, one of the best in the county, and straighten his house up and remove the traces of the September cyclone which twisted it about pretty badly, He has one of the pleasantest places on the river and one of the best equipped farms. M, C, Bailey owned a cow a week ago not well suited to the belligerent conditions, of a public pasture, She was turned out with some neighboring cows to be driven to grass, when one of them started to look horns with her, The result was that she was thrown, and as it finally appeared her baofc was broken, She was killed later, Sad news was received last week the death of Archie Hutchison's nine months old baby, Mrs, Hutchison had only, arrived in her new Louisiana home a few weeHs when the child wa.s taken sick, The death occurred last Wednesday and purJaHor the present is m&de in the south,.

Keith and Miss Edith Van Schaick being joined by Rev. Kennedy. The groom is oldest son of Mr. and Mrs. E. P. Keith of Plum Creek township and the bride a very attractive Algona girl. A few friends were present to give them well wishes and. to partake of the hospitalities of the occasion. THE UPPER DES MOINES joins in congratulating the happy pair over th«air prospects for a prosperous future. The water in the city well still comes as red as ever, and cleaning the standpipe last Wednesday does not seem to have benefitted the consumers much. About four feet of the red shale was taken out of the pipe and it took from 10 till 3 o'clock in the night to do the work. The mains which were opened to let the water out'poured out a big quantitiy of the shale. It will be a serious question what to do if the water does not clear up in the well before long. • Baseball, which has languished somewhat since that famous game of years ago between the laws and medics, is on the gain again, and Algona has a team in the field which will hang Lu Verne's scalp up Saturday if nothing untoward occurs. The nine is as follovvs: Leslie Wilkenson, pitcher; Bob Philps, catcher; Nick Ray, first base; Will Coville, second base; Peach Cowan, third base; Dell Coville, shortstop; and E.
