The Lo« Cabin Built for Father Taylor in 1850 to Bo Taken Down. Mrs. A. M. Horton has begun the work of removing the old building which has stood so many years on the lots owned by her southeast from the school house. In this building and now uncovered is the original log cabin put up for Father Taylor. He came to Algona In the spring of 1866, walking from Port Dodge, and decided to remain as a missionary. And so in the summer the pioneers gathered and out the logs in the timber near S. S. Rists, and had a big raising bee. The corners were carried up by Ambrose A. Call, Lewis H. Smith, David King and J. L. Paine. Carrying up the corners in those days was the' fine work. Each man sat at his corner, the logs were rolled up to him, and he was expected to notch' them and fit them at the first trial, and it was a little against his record to. be compelled to roll a log back to trim it the second time. At this time Algona had a few cabins but no frame houses, Ambrose A. Call having just come up with the mill which afterwards provided lumber. , Father Taylor occupied the log cabin as long as he lived. In the course of a few years he built the main part as an addition, and clapboarded the whole, but the cabin was the kitchen and has been until today. Mrs. Horton will take the main part for a barn, but will probably tear down the logs, which are. as well preserved as they were the day'they were laid. We believe that if the old settlers could meet they would buy the old cabin and preserve it n's a memorial and as a meeting place. Incidental to this story is Mr. Call's recollection of the planting of the old willow near the cabin. He says he saw James C, Taylor, after whom the Algona grand army post is named, car/y it by his house as a slip in 1858. He got it at the river. • The mile and a half dash'tomorrow at tbe fair ground will be the best run* ning race eVer seen oh this track, and probably the best ever seen in this part of the state. There are seven entries, and every horse comes With a record. First in the list in local interest is Ktis- suth, who by the way has been bought by genial and big Geo. Holloway, and who says Kossuth will go if he has to run on three legs. Kossuth Is a fast mile or mile and a half horse, ahd will crowd the rest at the finish. Ida M. Is the fastest half-mile horse In the state. She comes from Germa* nta, is owned by J. Cooper, and will make the rest hurry at the half-mile and mile posts. Starlight; owned by Oscar Smith, comes froin Pierson, Ind., with a running record in that state. Columbus, owned by H. B. Chokes, comes from Des Molnes, and is a recent race winner at Council Bluffs. Irish Boy, owned by G. A. Fisher, comes from Eagle Grove. He has run two years, andln that time has come in for money in all but one race. Kokomo, owned by D. W. Harper, comes from Hamlino, Minn., with a mile record of 1:46, which puts him in the very fast class. Zenda comes from St. Louis with the one and one-eighth mile record on the St. Louis track, which itfsures his speed. Altogether this is a fast field and it means that at the half, the mile, and the mile and a half points the crowd will see some speed: that is not often exhibited on more pretentious tracks. &fap-feftcheFlfitfi§ Sddlfe&fB ffatfc.of IU stale, «i_ it i* eaid fc me peysttaaed by ol&efl t« take the cftftnces bl sreililtf tJeer 1 6U the Sflslirlflee ttsat f«8 weald be sate.

Sioux City spent $5,000 last year in an attempt to exterminate the Russian thistles in the'-oity limits and will have more to do this year than .last. The Journal says: The attempt cost the city nearly $5,000 and was futile. Al- Today's Races. The fast race today is the three-quarter mile and repeat, and it includes most of the horses to start, tomorrow. In addition Gildersleeve, Ben. Smith's runner from Germania, is to go. He is also in one of the other races. He holds the Kansas City track record and is a runner who will make fast time, and as he has never yet run in the county a great many will be interested in seeing him go. There are seven entries in this race. ; In General. . The new fair ground fence is up, the handsome new grounds are open, a great many teams can be cared for there, and as it costs only the* regular admission with a return check a great many visitors tomorrow will put up there. The track is good repair and the horses are on the ground. Those who attend the races will see some exciting sport, and as the admission is but 25 cents (children under 12 free) they will be seen cheaper than like races are seen anywhere else.

And for this purpose tbe trustees may ready the places where the thistle was cut last fall are again covered with the weed, The thistle has now attained a height of from six inches to one foot- It is largest on a great many vacant lots where it was not cut last fall, but is coming up thick and fast in other places, • Street Commissioner Siraan is of the opinion that the thistle should be cut earlier in the season than last year. Tbe law provides that it shall be cut between Aug. 25 and Sept, 10, and the work last year was begun about Sept. 1. He thinks the work should be done about Aug. 1, and will probably bring the matter before the council before that time. Mayor Fletcher says the thistle -will be cut again this year, but that the work will be bandied in a different manner than last year. Instead of several hundred men working in different parts of the city, be says there will be a gang of about fifty men under careful supervision, An attempt will also be made to have tbe owners of vacant Grocery and you won't be.

GET your flags at the Opera House Grocery, A BIO BBEB Swect Uttle Woman Hag Peculiar Ideas About Oleanllneis. The Japanese toilet is robbed of one of its finishing touches by the fact that no Japanese woman, gentle or simple, however fond she may be of looking into the sun shaped gun metal disk, supported on an artist's easel, which serves her for a looking gloss, ever thinks of doing her own hair., The hair, after having all the last week's fat (the Japanese are exasperatingly clean in their persons) scoured out of it, is pomaded up afresh with the unctuous and not very olfactory pleasant compound, cas- tory oily, and worked into a most elaborate coiffure, more like a huge glossy black butterfly than anything else. As It is only dressed once or twice a week, it is never taken down except by the barber. But it is easy to sleep with your hair up when your pillow is merely a little wooden door scraper, with a hollow out in it to fit the neck, and ft drawer in its base to hold the ornamental hairpins. The true Japanese woman, whether she is rich or poor, uses a paper pocket handkerchief carried in one of her long hanging sleeves, with her tiny kiseru (pipe) and silk tobacco pouch, and another pouch containing a tiny comb, mirror and pigment for coloring the lips. She wears tabi white linen socks with a divided great toe, through which ehe inserts the strap of a delicate straw sandal or a high kiri wood olog, according to 'the drynesB of the weather, 'either of them discarded the instant ehe enters a building, and her parasol will be of the national Japanese shape, Whether it be of oiled paper or delicately embroidered silk, though to be sure the Sairey Gamp umbrella is about the first contamination from the west which her costume is likely to suffer. But I must not say any more about the dress of O-Hane San, the sweet little woman whose whole lifelong lesson, to quote tne "Onna Daigaku' v (greater learning for women), is obedience. -She never loses her temper, never uses a coarse or irritating word, and is always piquant and gracious and smiling, though she will die for her husband or her children or endure pollution for her parents' gain with marble courage,— London Graphic, Algy—So I have been oast for the part of a fooll I hope I shall make a success of it May—Act perfectly natural,- and you certainly will.—Truth.

Judaism- its highest spiritual conception* should so have slighted the wonderful, body, of bygienio science which the Mosaic law embodies. The explanation, fooweyer, probably is that Christianity undertook to deal with tbe matters supernatural, while Jndaism, whether ancient or wod' ern, is concerned only with mundane af' fairs. As legion Wolf admits, Judaism is really a sort of positivism, Its aim jis tbe attainment of happiness in world, whereas Christianity is f'~ concerned about happiness in tbe to oome.
