How about free coinage? J. L. Sutton was bound over under . OO bonds to meet the grand jury up in Minnesota. . Marvin McMurphy, a brother of Mrs. Glasler, is engaged with Dr, Glazier in his dental office. Oats blown down in the storm last week are generally coming up so as to be readily harvested. John G.

Gilmore is pulling down his oil house at the Milwaukee depot. . The new tanks make it superflous. Be sure and hear Bishop Thoburn tomorrow evening-.

The Silver Lake camping party are home. Will Ladendorf established the fishing record for the party with a 13- pound pickerel. Jo. Cordingley will brick veneer the front of his meat market, and have a brick building 70 feet deep with cellar excavated under it all. Kirkhart's circus had a splendid band and a good show for a quarter. A tent full was out in the afternqon and a fair crowd in the evening. There is no question about the success of Ambrose A. Call's listed corn this year. He as fine a field as is to be seen anywhere in Iowa. . There are quite a number of things happening this season that . make Algona look all right, in spite of the lack of a booming spirit in the land. Mrs. Guy Grove took her Sunday school class out for a picnic last Wednesday afternoon. They had a good time in the Ambrose A. Call grove. • The summer term of the normal school closes this week. The attendance has been good and the prospects for next year are better than ever at this time, Geo, E. Roberts of Fort Dodge is the owner of 500 acres of flax in Kossuth county, and this is a good flax year. He has 800 acres of land in the- north end of the county. The band concerts hereafter will be given Saturday evenings instead of Friday. A public concert will be given every week, except when members are unavoidably absent. Miss Kate Smith played at the song service Sunday evening at the Congregational church, and showed marked Improvement. She is rapidly reaching the front rank of violinists, tended to the delegates will meet in our neighboring Mulct town and have it out, A, D. Clarke Is receiving soilie very flattering assurances of success. Wilfred Jones reports 13 corn harvesters sold already. The machine cuts and binds corn and is a success. The time of saving corn fodder has come in this country. It is too valuable to waste any longer. The Larrabee lands in Eagle township are all rented on five year leases, and are mostly in flax this season. The amount of breaking there has been 'extraordinary. The houses and im- proveraents do not amount to much. On Monday, the 22d, at the residence of Episcopal minister of Algona, Viola Rhodes was married to Alexander H. Glnze, both of the contracting parties being from Buffalo Center. The ReV. Geo. Leslie performed the ceremony. The work of fitting up the basement room of the school, house is going, on. A good recitation room will result. The board contemplate papering or painting all the school rooms. They will decide at the meeting in August. We have found a man who don't want any early train to Des Moines. It Is Agent Vesper. "Who," he asks "is going to sell the tickets for that 5 o'clock train?" We have an idea that Gillie Rutherford looks at it about the same. Rev. Kennedy went to the home of Mr. Norris .last Thursday and united Grant Barker and Carrie Mosier. in marriage.

"Dunt" denied having a birthday, but they found out from'his relatives and took possession of his home. Bishop Thoburn, the manager of the Methodist forces in India, lectures tomorrow night at the Methodist church. He is one of the ablest of the Methodist bishops, and any man ; who gets to be bishop is well worth a hearing by any audience. He will talk on India. E, P, MoElroy has taken Rev. Davidson's, place in the pulpit during the illness of "the latter, Sunday evening his remarks were peculiarly well suited to the musical service, Work has begun on the new vaults for the auditor and clerk.

Cowan is doing the job. The Nebergalls have won in their suits against the Plumlev estate. These judgments will take all there is, and there will be nothing left to go to the heirs under the will. The homestead near Corwith was lost some time ago to an adverse claimant by decision of the land office. Drs. Kenefick and Pride lately attended a medical meeting at Mason City where fifty brother professional men were *present. Dr. Kenefick at the banquet talked on the profession from a young man's standpoint. The regular meeting of the county association was adjourned for this meeting. Thos. Barley has gotten out a beautifully illustrated pamphlet on Passadena and vicinity and remembers this office with a .copy. Some people think the warm .climate of southern California enervating, but if it is it has made no inroads on the energy and enthusiasm of the genial Thomas.

Invitations will be issued, Minhetonka. The bride is well remembered here as a very handsome and attractive girl, and she has many friends who extend congratulations. Last Thursday witnessed a soaking rain of 2 inches, It was part of a state-wide storm which did great damage about Iowa City. A Rock Island train was ditched there and mllea of track were damaged. The Burlington had 600 feet of track Washed out. Here oats were beaten down but no damage was done and the benefit of the water to corn more ,than offsets the trouble it has caused harvesters. Last week a draft for $660 arrived for A. W. Sterzback from the Masonic accident insurance company on account of the injury to his hand. His policy called for an indemnity of $25 a week for 26 weeks and he gets the full amount. He was reluctant about continuing his insurance the last time he was called on for the premium, but is now feeling pretty well pleased that he waited one year longer. He has been disabled many months, but is again able to be at work. The lecture program of the institute is as follows: Thursday evening, Aug. 8, "Schools in the Year A. D. 2,000," Prof. J. C.

This arrangement will give, Prof. Lilly all his time for the class room, Merrill Call made a, bicycle record which be did not intend to have get into the papers. He rode from Sioux City to Algona in one day, leaving home at 3 o'clock in the morning, It took 36 hours a.od the distance is a full 150 miles, Counting out bis stops for meals he averaged Jl miles an hour, Readers of THE UPPER DES MOINES who remember the Algona Patriot, the predecessor of the Courier,, will be interested in the following item from the Des Moines News concerning its editor: Mr. E. A. Sciple, for 13 years tele- grraph editor of the Des Moines Register, has retired to engage in private business. Mr. Sciple is one of the most popular newspaper • men in Des Moines and an efficient worker. The press workers of Des Moines all trust that Mr. Sciple may always travel hand in hand with success. A Livermoreit'e named Hysert is expected in Algona today with ?>13.50 in his jeans. Offended justice demands this from him for getting mad because he was caught bluffing. He went up to LuVerne and made great boasts about what he would bet on the ball game. Finally young Parsons of Sherman took him up, and with many words he backed squarely down. Then as Parsons turned away he struck him on the back of the head and added several blows before he could get turned about. 'Squire Raymond was appealed to and Hysert's friends are paying his fine. Now that the Burlington is building over east so as to own all its line to Armstrong a vigorous movement should begin to have it run its trains to connect at the Northwestern crossing in this county. It is absurd that men should be longer in getting to the county seat now that we have railroads than they used to be when they relied on teams. It took three days for delegates to the last county convention to attend. In many cases the railway commissioners have compelled companies to connect even at overhead crossings, and they undoubtedly will here if they are asked. But the Burlington company should be courteously invited to give the matter consideration before any further steps are taken. Old friends of Prof. Baker and his family will be interested in this item from the Indianola Herald ; Miss Myra Baker, second daughter of Prof. O, H. Baker, late U. S. consul to Denmark, has just been elected teacher of German and French in Lombard University, Galesburg, 111. We congratulate that institution in securing a teacher of such culture and talent as Miss Baker possesses. She is a classical graduate, first of Simpson college, later of DePauw University, both of which schools have given her the degree of Master of Arts pro merito, Besides this, Miss Baker after having filled the chair of Modern Languages for a year in Napa qollege, Cal., spent more than a year perfecting her» self in German and French in Europe- Denmark, Germany, Belgium and Paris— under the best teachers to be found, In exchange for buggies and farm machinery of all kinds.
