H6 has r6cefitly;iflade Some computations dett* : 8nstFatlng the poWef and Wealth of the 'United Slates, His figures tell a mat' story, add suggest romance than reality. A few of them in paragraphs should be cut Dill by everybody and hung up where Ihe cafi lee them daily. 1. The working power of every in* habitant has trebled since 1860, owing Chiefly to . the development of steam , pdweh The natural working power of an able bodied man is 300 foot-tons dally—that is a power equal to raising 800 tons one foot. In 1865 the average for the United States is .1,940 foot-tons pet inhabitant. In England the average is but 1,470, in Germany 902, Prance «10, and in Italy but 380. 2. An ordinary American farm hand, owing to machinery, raises as much grain as three in England, four in France, five in Germany, and six in Austria. The average production in this country is 360 bushels of grain and 1,230 pounds of meat per hand. In Italy it is but 39 bushels of grain and 160 pounds of meat. Reducing all •products to a common denominator one . hand in this country produces 475 bushels, in England 228, in France 188, in Germany ,118, in Italy 115, and in Austria 97. 3. The.people of the United States pay twice as much as those of any other nation for popular education. •The average here is $2.80 a year to the inhabitant, in England $1.39, in France 80 cents, in Germany 60 cents, in Austria 30 cents, in Italy 25 cents. The people here average 110 letters a year through the postoffice. In Eng- Jandbut 60, Germany 53, France 39, Austria 24, Italy 16. 4. In 1820 there was $205 of wealth to the inhabitant in the United States. In 1890 there was $1,039. The annual increase of wealth per head from 1880 to 1890 was $37.90 as against an annual increase of 34.20 from 1860 to 1880. The daily addition of wealth is 11 cents to each inhabitant or 87,000,000 a day for the nation. 5. Average wages for operatives have risen 60 per cent, since 1870. In 1870 wages averaged $302 a year, in 1880 $347, and in 1890 $485. 6. The total farm production of the United States amounts to $12,000,000 daily, or $1,200,000 hourly. There are fl,070,000 hands engaged in farming. Their average production is 13 cents an .hour for each worker. 7. The construction of new railways lias cost a million dollars a day sinee 1875. The freight charge is less than .half as high as in Europe, and this means a saving of $845,000,000 to the people each year, or over 10 per cent, on the cost of the roads. In concluding his article Mr. Mul- Imll says that with our accumulation of ^wealth at tbe rate of $7,000,000 a day, and with-our increase in power, which lias trebled since 1860, the United States stands without parallel in the history of tbe world. DOS' Moines News; Congressman J)pjliver's address yesterday shows that lie JB no less an orator than in his younger years and that bis patriotism is of tbe -.genuine American variety.

This school has grown steadily land is now In a flourishing condition. Ptoffi the autumn of »88 to the summer of *-9l was spent in general practice in the city of Atlanta, This period) the busiest 'of my professional life, was rich in expediences, varied and interesting. My Work was largely but not entirely confined to the colored people. Pleasant recollections wilt long remain of the courteous treatment accorded me by some of the best physicians of the city, chief among them the Christian gentleman, Dr. W, H, Kendridk, dean of the Southern Medical college. In the fall of '91 I removed to St. Louis, Mo., but falling a victim to the typhoid fever epidemic of '92, 1 was induced to try what effect the air and water of this. particularly healthful spot would have upon my tardy convalescence. As at present Writing I tip the scales at IBS, and as these same influences react as favorably upon the inhabitants of this community as upon myself, it is needless to say that I am thoroughly, not to say sadly, convinced of the extreme healthfulness of the place. Wilberforce university is a mixed school of 800 students. I have the work of resident physician, of teacher in physiology, and conduct the classes in the nurses training department. " To the young .vomau of common sense, good educaticn'and a love, real or imaginary, for the science and art of medicine I should extend evepy encouragement to begin the study of the same entirely independent of -the fact that she takes it, up with the idea of its becoming her life work. To predicate what is to be the life work of any individual, lies I think beyond the pale of human possibility. We are too largely creatures of circumstances, and 4 It is a part of the irony of human existence that the end we really accomplish by striving with might and main is apt to be something quite different from the 'end we dreamed 'Of when we started on our arduous journey.' Yes, doctor, I should like to have 'One of the books. In case I do not hear from you before June 20 please direct to me at my home in Ann Arbor, Mich., No. 26 Fourteenth street. 'Thine own wish I wish thee,' and every other member of old "85. Cordially yours, "S. B. JOXES." Emerson Hough, who graduated in old class '80 of the state university, conceded by all its members to have been the best class the school ever turned out, contributes a story to the current Midland which for artistic and literary merit equals anything the magazine has yet published. Mr. Hough is the Chicago representative of Forest and Stream and his pictures of the hunting and fishing of the west and south have delighted all readers of that leading periodical devoted to out-door sports, He is a charming writer, of which he gave ample promise in the old days, and Midland .readers will not find a choicer bit of fiction in the whole range of June magazines than the opening half ' of " Belle's Roses." ' -M- The best thing called out by Geo. E. Roberts' book on Coin is the following letter from John V. Farwell, the big Chicago merchant: A few days since a farmer-looking young man called at my office to get prices of gpods in 1859-60. As our sales books of that date were all burned up in the great fire, I introduced him to one of our oldest salesmen, from whom ho obtained the coveted information. Yesterday that young man (from Iowa) banded me <v book on the Currency question with the quotations from our salesmen— among others, old and new— -and on reading the book, written to answer "Coin's Heresies," and in the style of that book I must say that the quiet farmer boy has put this whole question in the most practical and condensed form that I have seen in any quarter. THE MONTH'S MA6AZINES, Mr. Josiah Flynt, whose unique personal experiences of tramp life in America and Germany have interested readers of the Century during the last year or more,' describes in the Century for June the tramping experiences of himself and a friend in England and Scotland, The peculiar characteristics ot the tramps of Qreat Britain, and British methods of dealing with them, are treated with Mr, Flynt's usual kppwledge, a«»d add to the sociological yalue of Wa. previous articles, -t-f* A summer flavor pervades the June. number of St. Nicholas.

A ohiffltiey was blown doWH ott the" new Spencef school building last week and crashed through two stories, doing $1,000 damages. Emmet county has the primary system. The Bancroft Eeglster asks: " When Will Kossuth Bounty adopt the primary system of nominating officers?" We note that Capt. W. E. G. Sauhders is to discuss "The Retatioas of the Town to the Country" at the Emmetsburg farmers' institute this week. Hurt Monitor: Lev! Toothtnan was called to Mt. Vefnon last Friday because of tbe serious illness of Ira Tooth" man, who is attending Cornell 'College. Soon after his arrival be was somewhat better, but the first of this week he was worse again. Bro. Platt tells this astonishing Iowa Falls story. A resident claims that by actual count he had l^SS growing hills of potatoes from one bushel of seed. Counting 16 hills to the bushel he will have a yield of 102 bushels from his single bushel of seed, Emmetsburg Democrat: A few days ago Peter 'J- Wagner and John McCormick drove to Ledyard and other Kossutb pointft looking for suitable lands to purchase. They saw some fine country and bad a good time. . Estherville Vindicator: Algona has gained 1,000 population in twenty years. EstherviUe has gained that many in five years. At the same rate, of increase for the next five years', Algona will still have less than 3,000 wbile Estherville will have between 3,500 and 4,000. Louis Eickenrodt tells the Clarion Monitor that he is doing a bigger business than he- expected. The Monitor says: In addition to being a very pleasant gentleman to meet Mr. E^ thoroughly understands his business and takes pride in turning out first class goods, both in material and make. He is deserving of the liberal patronage enjoyed. The relative importance of Fourth of July features is illustrated in this item from the Germania Standard: A good program has been gotten up for the 3d and ftfh of July ; by a number of citizens at the county seat, which 'gives full details of the horse races, bicycle races, ball game, etc., at that place. A $200 purse for one of the novelty races is-a groat inducement fora good number-of horses. Algona intends to give one of the greatest celebrations ever before exhibited in the history of that city. aEO. W. HAOA NAMED. The Wesley Reporter Says He Is the Man—Tbe Courier'Say B.ff. K. Jones Will Have a Following. Two names are added this week to the list of legislative possibilities, Geo. W. Hannaand J. B. Jones. The Wesley Reporter says: " Geo. W. Hanna is our choice, whether you forget it or not, and he can have the nomination and election too, if he wants them." The Courier views the field and says: "Let our republican friends figure a little on Mr.. Jones' candidacy. And by the way, where could they get a better candidate?" lak ba the great; Aftej? their fpod hj$ all been ex, they managed to swure release boats hearJBg messages. tQ Ja»§» ftaWwin, a Endorse Senator Funk. Germania Standard; ^ Mr. Funk is a man of broad and liberal views, of sound judgment, of ripe experience, a friend and a man with influence in affairs, extending to other parts of the state as well as our own. We ought to have such a man for our next senator. Put it down in your memoranda that you will vote for him. Emmetsburg Reporter: That Senator Funk has served this district ably and well for the past eight years, is conceded by all, and that if called upon again to serve his constituents in the senate he would do so in such a manner as to reflect credit upon himself and district. LuVerne News; It looks now as if Hon, A. B. Funk would be renominated to succeed himself as state senator from this district. We believe that Mr, Funk is one of the best men in the district for the place, and Kossuth county could do no better than to give him a solid delegation, Mr. Funk has always worked, and worked bard, for the best interests of Iowa and the northwest, and his eight years ex* perienoe will enable him to serve the district with better results than any inexperienced man< Estherville Republican; Senator Funk will practically have no opposition for re-election, The people are satisfied with him iand are willing to let well enough alone. 'Emmetsburg Tribune: Senator Funk will in all probability eupQeed himself, Carroll Herald; He is a oonserva- live well balanced man, aodj impressed witb' the continued fidence. repeeed in hinj by-hjs c ue»te,- We should all be delighted to gee t'Atje," }?«»$ re-e^Qtefl tp BUS PORMEMORm DAT, Bat ttte Veterans Welcomed ft for the Good that Would dotne of it to Fiiil PHTgtaffl Carried M«gp6ns6 tot the Key Mbhttffitnt *^A Curious Case. ttvetei ft , ttlitef ?a| , diotiefl, rtfwi tt For the Bfst time la many years rain interfered with Memorial day exercises at Algona last Thursday. But the rata was welcome, and those who attended were more enthusiastic than they possibly could have been with continued dry sunshiny Weather. The opera bouse was comfortably filled fof the morning exercises, and iti tbe afternoon the clearing skies permitted almost as many to go to the cemetary as in former years, The baud and a glee club for music, excellent recitations by Chas. Chubb and Abra Robinson, handsome decorations with flowers and flags, and a sound, patriotic, and Vigorous address by Dr. Ely the pleased all in the morning, while the parade, headed by the band and Company F in full uniform presented a handsome spectacle in the afternoon. Flowers were scattered on the graves of the soldiers by the little girls, and others were brought in memory of heroes buried in other places. A salute and tbe usual ceremonies marked tbe days program. Dr. Blythe's address was marked by the earnestness of an old soldier and by the vigor of a man yet in his prime. It dealt mainly with the events of the war, and the lessons to be learned from them, and was especially appreciated by the veterans to whose minds it vividly recalled the past. FOR THE KEY MONUMENT. A liberal response was made at the opera house to Capt. Dodge's appeal made by Gov. Jackson for aid towards the erection of a monument to the author-of "The Star Spangled Banner." The ushers collected $5.45. If every place did as well a handsome monument will soon go up. The story of how Key came to write this song is curious. During the war of 1612 he was in a ship lying helpless while the American fort was bombarded by the British. In the morning they expected to see the,flag gone, but through the early haze could see "the flag was still there," and he sat down and wrote the song in a few hours. A CURIOUS CASE. When Chas. Ford, the one time hotel man of the Thorington, died he was buried in the soldiers' lot, on his statement that he was in the Union army. 'The post have tried at various times to find out what company and regiment he belonged to, but he-declined to tell when he was alive and his relatives fall to furnish evidence now that he is dead. There is reason to believe that in fact he was a member of the rebel army, and his grave is not decorated. His remains will likely be removed unless it can be shown that he was a soldier. TWO ADDED TO THE HONOR ROLL. Two new mounds were decorated this year for the first time, bringing the Algona list to 30. Horace Schenck and Capt. L. M. B. Smith are added to the ranks of the dead. Mr. Schenck was killed by the cyclone, and Mr. Smith died suddenly at his home. Mr. Schenck was a pioneer of the county, the first settler to locate north of Algona and build a home. MEMOEIAL DAY NOTES. Dr. McCoy Recalls an Incident of War—Samuel Mayne's Oration at Bancroft—Dolliver at Des Molnes. In the New York Christian Advocate of May 80 is the following tribute to a rebel colonel, who was still a gentleman, written by Dr. McCoy. We clip a paragraph of local interest: Your correspondent happens to be one of the number captured by General Forrest's command at Athens, Ala., Sept. 24,1864, and taken from thence to Meridian and Enterprise, Miss., where we underwent some of the rigors and trials of prison life. We were to be paroled, but the Confederate authorities stated that on account of the condition of affairs in Alabama, Georgia, and Mississippi, it was impossible to carry out the terms,of capitulation—at least that was the way the documents read that they gave us. When we reached our evident destination we had a good, jolly crowd, that were bound to sing and pray for the Union even in the midst of .rebeldom. So after we had spent some months at Enterprise, one morning it was announced that Colonel Henderson of the Confederate Exchange bureau was in town with orders to take us to Memphis for exchange. Never was news received by more grateful hearts, though our sufferings were not as great as in the prison pens of AndersonviUe and Cahaba, The latter named place was where the rank and file of our commands had been taken, and a few days prior to the com* ing of Colonel Henderson I had applied for transfer to Cahaba, where I could care for the men of my regiment (they were all commissioned, officers that were at Enterprise,) but had no reply to it when we started on our journey to Memphis, We finally reached Menv phis, after some days consumed in the journey on trains pulled by locomotives that were o» their "last legs," cars pulled by rabies, and afoot; • but there we were, going toward M God's opiiBtry," as the boyg wsed to pall it, and they leH it in their heart pf. hearts all the way tbwgbt, that; Colonel >n WP tbe man and 'the. ideal Jhadjesi, sUJraok °lbiffi .few.yggriagQ, el !«T" s6fitimeflt§ „», fill ble* ft* Ihe bfdefly obnemflce' 6f ihe a&y, .free ffotn free f««a fade noise ...... a day as dScwous fad as bedaffie the memorial ef ft bottomed dead, with hearty applause, Tb§ mm true of hismanfy appeal tot justice te the disabled afad vanishing (-auks jtf ouf nations defefldefs; equally noble and. generous was his plea fof the "dharity of the bfave" that shall yet heal the wounds of Waf and cement a United coufitfy for the achievements of the mightiest fepublic Oft earth, DOLLlVES AT DES MOiNES. Congressman Dolliver WHS MetrioHftl day oratof at Des Moines and his address Was a magnificent tribute to tbe cotnmott soldiers of Iowa and to their leaders. The papers report that he was received with great enthusiasm and, heartily applauded, especially at the close of his tribute to Gov. Kirkwood. As aa item of news the Register says! Congressman Dolliver bore the marks of the house-builder yesterday when he was here. He slipped .and fell the other day while superintending the building of his new mansion at Fort Dodge and clapped his hand down on a shingle nail, which had nothing to do but insert itself into bis thumb its length. Mr. Dolliver is in good health and spirits, however, and will probably go to Cleveland with the Iowa Republican league. DBAMATIO AND LITEBABY. The excellence of the Algona band surprised everybody memorial day. It is the best band we have had in late years, and all its members but Hugh Smith live in Algona. The open-air concert in the evening was enjoyed by everybody. G. W. Cady is the best instructor In these parts, and the band ought to receive encourage* ment to become a permanent musical organization. *** Friday evening a free public musical! recital will be given by Miss Wartman's music pupils in the Congregational church. The young people are developing fine talent, and the program will interest all. ### Miss Zoa Wartman is to sing at the Masonic gathering at Spirit Lake, June 25. »#* A large audience was out Friday evening for the Social Union club program. The music was rendered by Misses Randall and Starr and Miss Edith Bowyer, Rev. Kennedy had a vigorous and able argument against the private citizen becoming an enforcer of law. He held that the citizen should compel tbe officials to do their duty and not do it for them. Miss Nettie Durant discussed interestingly tbe present and future of the negro, and Dr. Kenefick had a very timely paper on consumption, or tuberculosis. He dwelt especially upon the facts that the disease is contagious, that it may appear anywhere in the system, and that a very common source of it is in diseased milk. The program was one of the best the club has given. #*» J. P. Dolliver speaks at LeMars'on the Fourth, and addresses the editors at Estherville, Aug. 1. The Algona band will give another open-air concert next week, and continue them every two weeks thereafter. The programs will be published in tbis column. VIC. B. D03QLIVEB THE OBATOB. Tlie Algona Celebration Will Have One of the Best Speakers In tlie "West—The Burt Picnic. The program for Algona's great celebration has advanced a stage during the week and a very important one at that. Mr. Starr has secured Victor B, Dolliver to deliver the oration. Mr. Dolliver is a younger brother of our congressman and has made a reputation on the stump and platform which is second only to that of J. P. himself. He was kept in the eastern states during the last campaign by the national republican committee, speaking with Thos. B. Reed and the other leaders, and be came out 'with many compliments from them, He has a voice like his brother's and can make everybody hear, and what he says will be worth hearing, The first official move is a success. If the committee do as well all along the line the day will be memorable, THE BURT BAND PICNIC. Big crowds poured into the grove east of Burt Saturday for the annual band picnic, and enjoyed as good a time as the wind and dirt would permit. Music by the Burt "band and mandolin club and a short but excellent address by Geo. C. Call constituted the program, with races and a ball game for sports. THE UPPER DES MOINES reporter expected to do the latter full justice but got an extra allowance of dirt in his eyes and retired early, The Bancroft nine played the Algona boys seven innings and got only six scores to twenty, and gave it up, Some horse races, bicycle races, and foot races entertained the people, WIND, WEATHEl," iSf QBW8, ADM IITQJBE The Mitfh School (?f adttatltttf Etefci§CS- fwstvs Graduates ta 3d from tbi Hdfthaf ftihdbl June (Shutfeh The day of the graduate has about at i?ived.

A big gathering, considering the rains, attended the dedication • of the new church in Prairie township last Thursday. There were present Revs. Geo. Heer of Dyersville, Geo. Hoffman of White Lake, S. D., L. D./.Forken- brokofNew Hampton, John Egan of Belmond, Jas. Mclnnerny, of Livermore, B. J. Lichtenberg of St. Jo, Michael Nicholls of Algona, A. J. Schemmel of Bancroft, and G. Neagle of Garner. After the big bell rang Rev. Heer blessed the walls inside and out, the other clergymen chanting psalms such as were chanted 3,000 years ago at Solomon's temple. The dedication of the church is first as a- place of sacrifice, second as a place for the holy sacrament, and third as a place for prayer. Rev. Forkenbrok led solemn high mass, Father Neagle and Father Egan assisting, Father Schemmel, master of ceremonies. During mass Rev. Hoffman preached an eloquent sermon in the German language. The Prairie settlement began with six families March 8, 1878, brought here by Father Gar, He was succeeded by Father Ecltart in 1890, and Father .Erdman followed in 1893. The church now numbers 80 families, the new building is larger than the Algona church with spire 126 -feet high, a school conducted by four sisters of St. Francis from Dubuque has some 80 pupils, and altogether one of the most prosperous Catholic communities has grown up, Father Erdman is yery popular and now has every opportunity for extending his work. Sunday School p'fcnfcV Next Saturday, June 8, the Sunday school at the Sohenck school house will have a picnic at Joseph Thompson's grove, 31 miles north of Algona, to celebrate their first anniversary, The Sunday school at the Frink school house and those who took an interest in the Sunday school of early days are invited to bring their lunch baskets, don their brightest smiles and meet with them. Exercises to begin at 10;30 o'clock. ___ <<- _____^__ OOUNTT COMMITTEE TO MEET, Montn pf May JT»4 IJot and Cold 0, D, Pettibone is tbe official weather clerk and his report for May shows marked extremes in temperat«re t The warmeit day was the 28th, 06 the .coldest was tbe j,3th» 3,4 Tbe average for the ro.Qn.tfa was 6J fie- grees.
