Sefefring to the Bloomer bait £am§ he Bancroft Register said Saturday: 'I! you wish to gee any Aigonafiittfcefls iext Monday— especially the bald eads of county officers— g6 td the ball The Boston Bloomers are a base ball success iti one way—they draw a crowd. They secured a bigger attendance Monday than has beett out for any two previous games, la otbef respects the Bloomers are not star perfofmers, Pefhaps, as Dr. Johnson said about the dog walking on his hind legs, the wonder is not that they play ball poorly but that they play at all, Why should they be criticised for not throw ing well when not one of a hundred can throw at all, But on6 Bloomer, and as usual the homeliest and oldest, was efficient. She could strike a male attitude in the pitcher's box, swing her foot like a professional, put on a tolerable curve, throw the bases, and catch everything that came to her, besides bat well and run bases like some of tbe Algona laws. She could S lay ball, and after the crowd had seen er they, gradually melted away towards town. , The Algona nine played hard not to win but came out abead by a score of 21 to 20. Trouble for, the Bloomers. The manager of the lady ball players will be in Algona Saturday if he attends 'Squire Taylor's summons, and if he does not come he is likely to find > an execution on his clubs and balls chasing him at Spencer. Up to Ruthven the nine have had a boy playing second base, who in bloomers, looked enough like a girl to<pass. But there, about five minutes before train time, they paid him up and discharged him, which accounts for the manager playing here. But the boy says that he was to have five day's notice and his fare to Chicago if he was discharged. So'he utilized the five minutes to board the train, and once in Algona he had notices served and suit begun. The trial will occur at 8 o'clock, and will probably be a default. Execution will be hastened to : Spencer, where they play Saturday, and if there -is anything to be levied on, our male bloomer will get his due. Tlie Game With Emmetsburg. Bro. Mayne, who watched the game reports as follows: The seventh and eighth innings resulted in goose eggs for each team, but when the" Algona fellows came to the bat in the ninth trouble commenced for the Emmetsburg boys. The crowd commenced to dance around and yell like Apache Indians. When tho first score crossed the home plate a genuine scalp dance commenced and pandemonium reigned supreme. The umpire had to give his decisions by signs, as his : voice could not be heard above the din. Some costly errors were made by the Emmetsburg boys, and this, with a few timely hits, allowed the Algona boys to tie.the score. The last half of the ninth, the tenth and the first half of the eleventh no runs were secured by either side, but by timely hits in the last half of the eleventh the Emmetsburg boys secured the one tally necessary to break the tie and the victory was won. The ground was horrible to say the best of it, the outfield being sO rough and uneven that it was impossible to field a ball with accuracy, and in attempting to do so - a fielder was liable to fall into a hole and jar his anatomy to a considerable degree. The home team was used to the grounds, and had the advantage on their side. To the ground, also, is due many of the errors made by the Emmetsburg boys. Emmetsburg. Tribune: At Algona, yesterday, Emmetsburg defeated the Algona club by a score of 8 to 9. Rotten umpiring handicapped our boys in the first two innings. The visitors insisted on a change of umpire, and the game went on, Glldersjeeve and J4» M, The Eagle Grove Times describes the running race in which Kossuth's two fast horses ran: The last race on the program was the three-fourths mile running, best two-in-three, and this time the Hnowing ones were entirely at fault in naming the winner, There were some splendid horses in this'race, and both heats were splendid exhibitions of racing, At the word in the first heat they got off in good shape, well bunched, At the first quarter Pearl N, was slightly in the- lead with Maple Leaf pressing her bard and Ida M, a close third, the balance being well bunched, They ran in this order 'till they reached the stretch when Ida M. passed Maple Leaf and closed on Pearl N,, Gilde^ieeve, who was in fourth, now made a magnificent effqrt and passed Maple Leaf and Ida M,> in rapid order, but was beaten under the wire by Pearl N> hy a length, Ida M third. The second beat was as fine ? contest -as the first, Starter Puller again got them off in good order aftei scoring for about twenty minutes. At the first quarter Ida M, was setting the pace, Giwersleeve, Pearl N, and M a pl f Leaf close behind in the order named At the half Pearl N. was pressing Ida M,, who was. abpnt a length in, the lead with Tbe Clown lapped, Thv prder was maintained in the stretch when a grand finish for'first was w,ad< between Pearl N. and Ida M«i th< Pes Moines mare winning by a length ™° ivf. second and The Clown. tJUrd Spor«B« Bancroft Register: The U, C< M, ays an effort will be taade to have the otig talked'of face between Gilder- leeve and Ida M. come off at the ounty fair. It would be a good draw- ng card. John Winkel has a two-jteaf'old colt titered in the LeMars north Iowa erby to h6 run next summe?i Some ne told John that there was a colt in he west part of the state which would ive the whole field the flag, John as since named his colt "Starry Banner" the Register says, because the ag story amused himi If the Eagle Grove ball nine can play hey did not give any evidence of it at gona. The score was 22 to 6 against hem. Their pitcher, who is said to be jch a good one, was pounded all over lie field. It Is said that several of the layers were green hands, but even so be pitcher was an easy victim for our oys. Sow the Algona nine allowed uch an aggregation to win down at agle Grove is a wonder.

The closing week of the institute is under headway with an enrollment of 260 teachefs. This number far exceeds the previous high-Water mark, and speaks for Itself, THE UPPER DBS MoiNES has Interviewed enough of the attendants to discover that the enthusiasm is fully in proportion to the num* hers and that the quality of the instruction is equal to both. It is the best as well as the biggest of Kossuth's institutes. Much of this is due to Supt. Reed's plan of work, In the first place he is his own conductor. By this means he can get the leaders in all lines of instruction. Many institute workers will not engage where a brother instructor is named conductor of the session. Thus it happens that usually 6ne leading teacher has a number ot assistants of lesser rank. But all instructors will work under Supt. Reed, on account of his office, and he is able to get in each department a teacher equal to the best. In the second place Supt. Reed by long training and considerable ingenuity in his work has become an expert In hold- Ing institutes, a fact which all the instructors who come here acknowledge. There Is no better planner nor manager of a teachers' gathering in Iowa. His institutes have given Kossuth a standing among teachers all over this part of the state, and each one is attended by numbers from outside his jurisdiction. He caps his record with this session both in numbers and in talent, and closes an educational session tomorrow which has not been surpassed this year in the state. Tbe Week's Exorcises. The closing public entertainment of the teachers' institute occurs tomorrow evening, Mrs. Lucia Gale Barber will give an exhibition in posing and recitation. Those who remember her from last year will need no further announcement. She is unrivalled in her line and the church, will not hold all who will attend. ' The institute closes tomorrow. Friday and Saturday will be devoted to regular examination work. The attendance has reached 250 in the three weeks. This beats all previous institutes in Kossuth and in this part of the state. Two hundred and thirty-one is the best heretofore in the county. Prof. Augsberg, who was to have been here during the week and to have given a chalk talk lecture last evening, telegraphed Supt. Reed from his home in New York that he was at his father's deathbed. It was a great disappointment, but there was talent in plenty to fill the vacancy. Prof. A. W. Rich gave a lecture last evening on "Our Heritage." It was thoughtful, able, and instructive. The professor is one of Iowa's .brightest educators. The church would not hold the audience for Prof. Swift last Thursday and he gave a second .lecture Friday, illustrating the wonders of science with a powerful light. He is not surpassed in his line and gave the teachers a great treat as well as much valuable information. The Week's Additions. Following is the enrollment since the report of last week: Burt—C. M.

The examination is the test of the pudding. The flag has been afloat all the time in accordance with state custom. The instructors and scholars alike say Supt, Reed is an expert on institutes.

The "Camphor Tongue" of- a Wild but Inoffensive Kaoe. One of the queerest languages in the world, used for the queerest purposes, is the "camphor . language" of Johore, a country of tho Malay peninsula. It has lately been studied and reported upon hy Mr. Lake, an English engineer in the service of the sultan of Johore. This language is called the "Pautang Kapor," or camphor language, and is used by the natives and all others who are engaged in gathering the product of the Malayan camphor tree and only at that time. If they used either of the languages of the region, tho Malay or the aboriginal Jakun, .the natives believe that they could not obtain any camphor, and for a most curious reason. The camphor tree, Dryoblonops oamphora, grows abundantly in certain parts of the peninsula, but only occasionally contains camphor crystals. The camphor is not the same as that obtained from the camphor laurel of Formosa and Japan, which is the source of the ordinary camphor of commerce. It is a sort very highly prized by the Chinese in the embalming of their dead, in incense and in medicine, and the gum brings much more than the common camphor. The Malayans and other Johore natives believe that each species of tree bos a .spirit or divinity that presides over its affairs. The spirit of the camphor tree is known by the name of Bi- Bon— literally" a woman. " Her resting place is near the •trees, and when at night a peculiar noise is heard in the woods, resembling that of a cicada, the Bisan is believed to be singing, and camphor will surely be found in the neighborhood,. But the spirit of the camphor tree seems to be jealous of the pre • oious gum and must be propitiated, and if she knows 'that hunters are in quest of it she will endeavor to turn their steps aside. So it is necessary to speak in a tongue which she does not understand. For this purpose the "camphor language' ' has been invented. It consists of a mixture of Jakun, and Malay words, but these ore curiously altered and reversed, and the natives positively believe that the divinity of the camphor tree is completely confused. The Jakuna who hunt the camphor are one of the wildest of people, but inoffensive. They live together with monkeys, dogs, cats, innumerable fowls and perhaps a tame hornbill in perfect harmony under movable leaf shelters built on poles in the woods,— Boston Traveller. in the following courses : Preparatory Normal, Scientific, Business, Surveying, Pen Art, Shorthand and Typewriting* vented by contrary winds he undertook to sail around the Orkneys, but the vessels 'which still remained to him were dispersed by storms or shipwrecked among the rooks and shallows ou different parts of tho Scottish and Irish coast, and upward of 8,000 men were dr6wn- ed, killed or taken prisoners.

Intelligent observers have testified to facts which appear to show that in certain circumstances the snake, scorpion and even some quadrupeds commit suicide. M. Henry, a clock manufacturer of Longuyon,Fronco, has recently (described an experiment of the kind which he made with a wasp. The wasp was imprisoned tinder a glass, and knowing that benzine asphyxiates insects he put some paper soaked in it beside the cap- tivo. The wasp became uncomfortable, then angrily attacked the paper, but finding all its efforts unavailing it finally lay down on its back, and folding up its abdomen planted its sting thrice into its body. M. Henry was so curious to con: firm the fact that, in spite of his humane feelings, he repeated the experiment ou three wasps with the like result.—London Globe. J. I. C.

As a sample of the payment of distinguished scholars in this country it may be mentioned that M.

The Invincible The invincible armada was a famous naval expedition sent by Philip II of Spain against England in 1588. It consisted of ISO vessels, 2,430 great guns, 4,576 quintals of powder, nearly 80,000 soldiers, 'above 8,000 sailors and more than 8,000 volunteers, It arrived in the English channel on July 19 and was defeated the next day by Admiral Howard, whg was seconded by Drake, Hawkins and Frobisher. Eight fire ships having been sent into the Spanish fleet, they bore off in great disorder, Profiting by the panic, the English fell npon them and captured or destroyed a number of their ships, and Admiral Howard maintained a running fight from July 81 to July 87, witli such effect that the Spanish commander, despairing of success, resolved to return home, and as escape throxjgh the English channel was pro- Unjust Fate.
