J. L. Donanod, trict manager , Algonaj A big ball game la on for at the fairgrounds. Eagle tfrove will be Up t6 see whether 1 they can run in 10 Bootes in one ihnihg-again, The game will be fof all thefe is in it because the Aigona boy% do Hot feel that they did themselves justice at Eagle, and will tfy and shut out the visitors as often as possible. , YESTERDAY'S GAME. Aigona lost the gatrie yesterday but a feat was accomplished which deserves a record, The Emmetsburg nine played two whole innings Without making a sound—the 10th and llth. So modest and demure was their demeanor that even Baker looked as though he might be at a Sunday-school picnic. The Etnmetsburgers had intimated that they would not have to play the last half of the ninth inning. They were glad to win by one score in the last hall of the llth. Aigona got two scores on the second inning and Emmetsburg one on.the third. The game stood that way till the sixth, when Etnmetsburg made a terrific break and got seven runs, leaving the score 8 to 2. Thus it stood till the ninth, when Algotta let out for six scores and the game was tied on 8. ine yelling was such as never before awoke the slumbering echoes of the peaceful Des Moines valley, not even when the Mulronies raised their voices. Neither side got a point on the 10th, and then on the llth Emmetsburg won by one score. " . It was a hot game from start to finish, the best ever seen in Aigona. Baker, the Emmetsburg pitcher, began a row by accusing the umpire of cheating on balls, and the Emmetsburgers all left the ground at one time. From that on it was a game of yelling and guying, Aigona bravely holding her own. Harv. Dailey finally umpired the game and with the exception of one Aigona man called out on second made very fair decisions. . Burrell on Base Ball. Washington Press: Ball games are not now near the fun they used to be. Like mother's cooking. They used to pound the ball, and knock it galley west, knock it out of the township, out of the county, but science now avoids "what knocks." And they used to kick the foot-ball—now it's not allowed save in one condition. They used to get the covered beef-bladder in a mob, and all rush in and kick shins and "holler" and yell "ouchl" and theological terms. These games have been absolutely spoiled by ."science," so called, and are not worth crossing the road to see. Mostly wrangling, and betting, and swearing at the umpire. What's the good, of an umpire r The , Davenport's got mad at him and the game was off. Players do 10 hours of hard work in heat and sweat and think it's " play," while if they had to saw wood half an hour at a fraction of the muscular expense, it would be dreadful. Nearly all the old time sports have degenerated into annexes to gambling institutions. ; Sporting Notes. Eagle Grove Times: Oh my, oh me! It will be harder work than ever to induce Clarion to play us a game since we "swiped" Aigona so hard Thursday. Armstrong Journal: The Denison ball team failed to show up in Aigona the day they promised to appear on the. diamond, They probably found out that Aigona could play ball, " Farmer" Burns, the world's champion wrestler, is to meet a Minnesota champion at Britt this evening and throw him five times straight or lose the match, Burns is a Decorah man and got a world-wide fame by defeating " Strangler" Lewis at Chicago. John V, Crum, the young Iowa sprinter, has been secured by the New Yorl: athletic club to represent them in the match races against the London club September 21, He Js also engaged by the Chicago association to run for them in the international championship September 14.

INSTITUDB'S * WEEK, A Lecture Friday Evening by Prof. Kich-Prof. GllchMst is Warmly Gfeeted-Getteral Matters. The closing session of the present week's institute occurs Friday afternoon at the Congregational church at 2 o'clock. At this Prof. Rich will give his much praised lecture on "Our Heritage."

At the close of the lecture Prof. Young, who has been a very popular instructor, will give a farewell talk. He goes with this week. Next week Prof. Augsberg hegins his instructions and Mrs, Barbour also. Both are at the head in their lines and will give added interest to the closing week of the institute. The lecture tomorrow evening is by Prof. Swiff, who will illustrate the wonders of the microscope and telescope on canvass by means of a calcium light. He does not use stereopt'can slides but shows the living objects as they appear on the microscopic lens. He is an able man and the church will not hold his audience. , The lecture next Tuesday evening will be a chalk talk by Prof. Augsberg. Everybody knows how interesting these are, and the professor is an expert. The church will be jammed again for him. The total enrollment Monday was 220. A number are to come in for the closing week. _ _ The Kossuth county horses came out With credit at Eagle GfoVe. Bellton came out second in the 2:25 tfoti Ida M. won second in the halMalle run, and Ida M, and Gildersleeve made it warm in the three'fourths and repeat race. The tnatch between Ida M, and Gildefsieeve did not come to a head. At Webster City it was postponed and at Eagle Grove Cooper, Ida M.'s owner, failed to be able or willing to put up his $T6, attd went to the judges and forfeited the $25 already up, The race would have been a hot and close one because in the three-quarter mile race Gildersleeve came in second on the first heat, beating Ida M,, while on the second heat Ida M. beat Gildersleeve. In the 2:26 trot Charles Smith thinks Bellton could have come first if the track had not been muddy and he had felt like driving him hard. In the half- mile race Ida M, was booked for a sure winner, and ought to have won. She had plenty of chance. The horses are all at home now and in good shape. feafll il predated to fay^ frfitt 8 SgeHts a twSund ffi6f e lot wtfcl 1H „_--. meres, blahkets, flannels, m Jftfns thaft Cftn be obtained at J-6UF fa6ffi8Ji»k6i Send for samples attd prices.

The professor took a roseate view of the the future. plans are not likely all to be.realized, but be suggested a number worthy of study, and all were interesting. He has been welcomed to Aigona by many old friends, and is highly praised for his work in the institute by the teachers. Prof. Gilchrist has been a power in Iowa's educational work in the past 25 years and his vigor and ability are unabated. Some Letters of Interest. At the formal opening exercises Ruth Reed read several letters from old time instructors which are worthy of publication. Here is Prof. A. B. Carroll's. He taught several years ago, and writes from Salina, Kan.: " I have many pleasant recollections of the four years institute work which I did in Kossuth county, and I am pleased to be able to say that I have never met more courteous nor more intelligent teachers than those of your county. I have of ten in the past referred to the institute of 1886, the first Institute held by Supt, B. F. Reed, as the most enjoyable, the most enthusiastic, and the best in which I ever worked, and I hope that the session now beginning may be even better than the one re- ferredto." Prof. Breckenridge writes from Decorah in part as follows: " How I wish I could be present at the formal opening and see those dear familiar faces, which I shall never forget. They represent my best friends and I think of them many times during each year. I remember well their enthusiasm and cheerfulness, and I hope that they may be even more ambitious during the present session," Prof, Warman writes from Chicago in part as follows: " My recollections of the Kossuth county teachers are both pleasant and vivid. They have often been referred to by me in consequence of their earnestness, aptness and ability, and especially their harmonious actlouwith their instructors. May they all live long, get married and die happy." Prof, Shoup writes from LeMars in part as follows; '' Few meii have a wider circle of friends among the teachers than I, but there are none for whom I feel a more kindly interest than for the bright, pleasant wide awake teachers of Kossuth," Prof. Davidson writes from Esther* ville: "From what I saw and heard I should infer that-the schools of Kossuth county must have reached a' high degree of excellence under th,e management of Supt. Keed." Bollton at Eagle Grove. The Webster City Daily Freeman reports the 2:26 trot at Eagle Grove: In the 2:25 trot five horses started for a purse of $200. In the first heat Bellton had the pole, Rosereo second, St. Seba third, Chancewood fourth, Juror fifth and Barderoh sixth. Juror took the lead at the .first turn but at the quarter pole Barderoh forged ahead, leading the field to the wire and taking the heat with no apparent effort, with St. Seba second, Belton third and Rosereo fourth. Chancewood was drawn on account of an accident in shoeing. The second heat was more like a horse race, the drive down the home stretch by ^Smith with Bellton, and Boyd with Barderoh, exciting great interest. Juror again kept ahead to the first quarter where the Randall horse passed him. The field kept closer up to the last quarter when Bellton made a drive for the heat, both he and Barderoh coming home under the whip, with the latter a short length ahead at the wire and Juror a close third. In the third heat Juror came out with McGuire up. B.arderoh had been barred in the pools the previous heat, but the crowd thought the brown horse was "quitting" from the way he finished the second heat and he was again installed favorite. The crowd bought the field but the Randall horse had plenty of backers and went to .the wii'e with the pools about even. In this heat he demonstrated that the confidence of his friends was not misplaced by taking the heat without being strung out, Juror finishing second, Bellton third and St. Seba fourth. The money winners were placed as follows: Barderoh first, Bellton second, Juror third, St. Seba fourth. Time 2:32— 2:29i—2:311. A County Fair Attraction.

It WM Built bj Oliver Evans, WhoCouldn'4 Ijiy up lyionoy* The real inventor of the locomotive never realized a cent from hia invention. His name was Oliver Evans, He was born in Delaware in 1760 and spout all his life perfecting inventions wfcich were destined to bring him nothing but more poverty. He was the original inventor of the high pressure engine used in locomotives, the only kind that could bo employed to advantage in this form of transportation, but realized nothing lor his idea. , Hie application of the notion to both land and water power was somewhat novel. In 1804 the municipality of Philadelphia called for bids for the dredging of the river and the cleaning of the docks. Evans put in a bid lower than any of his competitors, and when it was accepted determined to build a steamboat to do the work. ' Ho fitted out a scow with a steam engine, building both the engine and the scow in his own workshop. When the boat was ready to be launched, Evans determined to give the people of Philadelphia an object lesson in mechanics, so he put the boat on wheels, fitted up a push wheel behind, set his engine to work and propelled the boat through the streets to the river in the midst of an open mouthed throng, not a few of whom had a dim idea that he ought to be arrested for witchcraft. When the boat reached the bank of the river, the wheels and axles were taken off, the craft was launched, fitted out with other wheels and made to do the work of dredging the harbor. So far as tho invention of mechanical devices went, Evans had a splendid genius, but when dollars and cents came up for consideration he was a mere child, and even allowed himself to be cheated out of the money that was due him for cleaning the Philadelphia harbor with bis new fangled steamboat.— St. Louis Globe-Democrat.

A few evenings ago a lawyer living in West Philadelphia was visited at his residence by an indignant woman, who declared that she had come lor legal advice, and in a'businesalike manner deposited on his table a $5 note as a retaining fee. After pocketing the money the man of Jaw politely requested her to proceed with her statement. She said she was continually afflicted with a series of nuisances which she desired the lawyer to have abolished. She was annoyed by a neighbor on one side, she said, who is a music teach" er and trainer of the voice. The constant thumping on the piano and the discordant notes of the vocal students made her very nervous,. On the other aide the neighbor kept chickens, which awoke her early in the morning by their crowing, and annoyed her during the day by flying over the fence and invading her premises. Day and night she was made nervous by the noise of the trolley oars passing her door, organ grinders and peddlers made her life miserable, hucksters added to her misery by calling their wares, and she wanted to know what action she must take in order to he made free of such nuisances, The lawyer reflected a few momenta with, compressed brow, and then said, "Madam, you, are decidedly unfortu* nate, and P»y ftdwe to you is that you go to a real estate agent and engage him £0 secure for you a nice comfortable dwelling to the suburbs of some country village, where the nearest neighbor is a quarter of ft mile away, organ grind' ers unknown, trolley cars unheard, of, and where hucksters and peddlers do not come," Realizing that she was $6 out, the woman replied, "J'U $Q as you gay and include among the others no lawyers wast exist is the same coup- ty."—PWlacleJphla Record, -' f M -SI Estate, aaad.
