As we placed orders in the factories for a large quantity of shoes of all kinds when the shoe market had reached the lowest point that has ever been known, and before the sudden advance in leather which has caused the big advance in shoes, it places us in position to sell shoes at retail at what is now the wholesale price. As we are a little short of room for our big stock we have put part of the stock in the Fair Store, and will close out all of the stock that we have—only a few pair of a kind—regardless of cost.

A curious law suit is oh which arises out of the bicycle coatuine of the period. And curiously enough it is Hot the female but the male bloomer that is in evidence. Up at the Hotel Orleans a short time ago Platt B. Walker, a heavy lumber dealer, and W, H, EU editor of a lumberman's paper, both of Minneapolis, stopped at the hotel, while on a bicycle tour, for dinner. What was their surprise on attempting to enter the dinning room to be informed that they would not be allowed in the room with their bicycle trousers on. At first the objection was taken as a joke, but the management insisted that they would not be allowed to walk through the dining room wearing knee pants while there were ladies present. Mr. Walker finally had to assuage his appetite in the ordinary and Mr. Ellis went down town for his dinner. They now propose to get even for their ruffled dignity in a most substantial manner. If the hotel is as stringent as this on the male trouser, what would happen if the female outfit should show up at the dining room door) 1 Bnllcy on the Tramp Nuisance. Britt Tribune: Neighboring towns are pulling the u yags" and giving them their choice of going to pounding stone or shaking the dust from themselves. Mason City, Forest City and Algona are "In it" so far. That is the way to serve them, every vag that begs a meal, let the marshal put him on the street to work or fire him p. d. q. The lazy loafers, they can all get work at some price in the hay fields, if they are not too lazy to work. They would rather steal potatoes from the farmers, and lie in the shade in the day time and steal nights than do any kind of work. It is not doing an act of charity or even justice to give one in twenty-five of them a mouthful to eat. So long as they can beg their living, just that long they will tramp, and when they have to work they will do so, and the sooner they begin the better for all concerned. A Suggestion to Democrats. The Armstrong Journal thinks that Samuel Mayne is going to be easily vanquished, in which it is "off". But here is its suggestion to the opposition: It is generally supposed that the nomination is equivalent to an election, but if James Taylor will buckle on his armor he can make it very interesting for Sam Mayne from now until November 5. And there is J. J, Ryan who sells the earth. He can wallop into -the earth any ; political opponent in the county if he is given half a chance. If the citizens of Kossuth think the matter over seriously and consider the many important questions to be legislated on next winter they could find very few better fitted to represent them than this same J. J. Ryan. A Merry Camping Party. Armstrong Journal: The Algona boys who are camping at Silver Lake invited the Armstrong boys to take supper with them Tuesday evening, T. L.
