Mrs. Barbour's entertainment tomorrow evening will be one of the best of the institute course. Rev. Davidson is about as he has been for some weeks. He is very low with chances of recovery. There will be a meeting of the ladies of the A. L. A. at the reading room, Friday, Aug. 23, at 3 o'clock. Brownell has a whole menagerie these days on exhibition. Sacred Chinese birds are now on deck. J. A. Vipond gets ],330 bushels machine measure of barley from scant 20 acres. It will weigh out a half heavier. The Junior Baptist Union will give an ice cream social on the lawn of Mr. and Mrs. T. H. Connor, Friday evening. With the convention for county officers only two weeks away the question of candidates is likely to become red hot. Isaac Sweigard, our old time Wesley "Ike," has been nominated by the democrats for the senate in the Mason City district. All are cordially invited to attend the necktie social at M. F. Randall's Monday evening, Aug. 26. Light refreshments will be served. T. J. Julian tells about his plan to have a competition among dairy cows this week. It is a good thing. Let someone accept his challenge. Ed; Fitzsimmpns, Algona's .one-time cigar man, wants to go to Eagle Grove. He has a factory H at Mason City but will move to Eagle if the citizens encourage him. Senator Chubb drove in last night on the first load of a field of wheat which is expected to equal the record. The threshing is not done yet and no figures Obtainable. It is now possible that Ida Van Cortlandt, who played Victor Hugo's Lucretia Borgia to so pleased an audience in Algona, will be here in January for three nights or a week. Company F got away Saturday morning for Waverly 38 strong 1 , and are now enjoying this fine weather in camp. They had their new uniforms and were in fine condition. The statement, of the Algona Loan and Deposit association ag given by Bank Examiner Miller is published this week. It speaks for the. stability and prosperity of that institution. A. A. Brunson brought some ears of corn in from his farm Friday which- will give him a premium this fall if nothing happens. They are samples of as fine corn as they raise anywhere. The school board have decided to let Miss Coate take Prof. Dixson's place while he is siokj put Bert Barr in the high school room, and let the teachers furnish a supply for the depot school. G. J, Stebbins has bought a half interest with J, C. Anderson in the' Farmers' Exchange store, 'formerly the J. G, Smith stand, Some.innova- tions in a business way are promised. Yesterday's Chicago Herald says that Thos, H, Lsntry's brother, Barney, is very sick in the city, No word has been received iq Algona and Mr, Lantry is inclined to doubt the report. The Algona club go to Emmetsburg soon to play a return game. They will want to put cotton in their ears when they go over, or select a special chorus of about 50 of Algona's best trained voices. A splendid rain came last Friday night and did » great deal of good, But a wind came with it which was not needed, It blew stacks to pieces just west of Algona, racked windmills, and upset sheds, The Bancroft Register refers to the mil breaking last week a,nd says; ''Kossuth county certainly must buy an organ box pr some other better substitute for what wow , passes for a county jail," The Charles City man who talked of suing the county Jov $1,500 en account of his buggy goipg through » bridge over on Four -Mile has evidently depjjed to drop his claim.

Bet't is well known as a number ode teacher and so is Miss Hibbardi A strong addition to an already excellent corps is made. Prof. Gilchrist preached at the Congregational church Sunday morning, and Sunday evening Rev. Stevens told a union meeting about some impressions he received at the Boston christ- tan endeavor meeting. He says there were 55,000 delegates. « THE UPPER DBS MOINES will hereafter publish no notices of pay entertainments of any kind except at regular rates, Lectures and free meetings of public interest will be noticed free. This announcement was made once before but was not lived up to. This time it goes. The United Workmen who had arranged to go from Algona to Spirit Lake lost Thursday to the number of 100 or more with the band did not set out. They telegraphed a day or two before for a special train and as low a rate as the Masons had, but failed and refused to accept the terms offered. At the Wadsworth farm by Hobart the threshers had just begun on the grain which was in shock, when the big wind bit it. Twenty acres of wheat bundles were scattered worse than the machine left them and the oat shocks fared little better. Six men were out shocking grain again the next day. Prof. Dixson continues in his bed but is gaining slowly. The teachers yesterday adopted resolutions of sympathy for him in which they say: " We, the teachers of Kossuth county, at institute assembled, hereby express our feelings of sympathy for him in his affliction, and hope for bis speedy recovery." During the wind last Friday a big tree two feet through fell over in the gorge on the Thompson road and smashed down on a wagon owned by some campers. They were in a tent a few feet away and slept as peacefully as though no wind had blown. Dr. McCormack went through in the morning and says they couldn't imagine how the tree had come to fall. A serenading party was out one evening last week in the band wagon and charmed the slumbers of some, 'THE UPPER DES MOINES people among them, and cheered the waking hours of others. Misses Zoa and Luella Wartman, Louise McCoy i and Bertha Hancock, and Messrs. J. J. Ryan, Alf. Chapin, Geo. Hamilton, and Frank Tellier constituted the party. Wesley Wilsey, who was arrested last week at Webster City, on the charge of adultery and brought to Algona, was released on $800 bond put up by Webster City parties. D. C. Chase is Mr, Wiltsey r 8 attorney. The charge is brought by Mr. Shadle and involves his wife, Mrs. Rose Shadle. Mr. and Mrs. Shadle separated some weeks ago by common consent. Wm. Bowman was drunk and Constable Hunter took him in, Robt. Bowman was not drunk but he placed his doubled up hand against Hunter in a way 'to indicate an unfriendly feeling. Marshal Willey took Robert in. Mayor Haggard said Robert might pay $20 or do 20 days' work OD the street, and William might pay $15 or do 15 days' work on the street. This is the Bowman chapter for the week, : . The state report on corn is not so hopeful; With timely rains to develop the late planting, this state will probably produce a fair average crop of corn. If the weather remains dry and hot, pushing the crop too rapidly to maturity, the quantity and quality will be reduced considerably below the normal yield. But without another drop of rain for a month the aggregate of corn will most likely be more than double the output of last year. Oliver Benschoter, Algpna's first blacksmith, had a close call at his home near Fairmont last week. He has been ill some time and sank into a trance or unconscious state which many took for death, A, L, Seeley and wife, Mrs. Jas, Ferguson, Mr, and Mrs, Grant Bensohoter, and Mrs, Geo, Holman went up, but he rallied and is again as well as usqal. The old gentleman is in failing health and will soon join the ranks of the rapidly decreasing band of pioneers. The republican county convention is called for Tuesday, Sept, 3, by Chair' man Crose, with ft recommendation that caucuses be held Aug. 31. That will bring the caucuses next week Sa> urday. This gives short notice, but probably everyone is ready to turn out on a. moment's warning, The officers to nominate this fall are a treasurer, clerk, sheriff, superintendent, and su« pervlsor. Col, Spencer, B, F.v Grose, C, C. Samson, B. F. Reed, and W. J, Burton are the present incumbents. marriage repprdf contain a ourioui document, One of the fair brides, of l^e« is « minor ftB& to show the consent of h<*r parents, who Jive elsewhere, she filed a la$e letter her mother, The follQwiBg 9 made on we hear by and is evidently doing a big business.-. At Clarion they say the dishes are a toy set worth 15 cents, But up here no dishes of any kind are likely to arrive. A telegram Saturday announced to Daniel Rice and Mrs. tnghatn the death of their oldest brother, Eleazer C. Rice, at his home in Fairfleld, N. Y. They would have gone to the funeral but were unable 16 leave Algoon in time to arrive. Mr. Rice was 67 years of age and had visited Aigona several times. He was a farmer, and had accumulated a substantial property. He was atone time a member of the New York legislature and always a prominent republican in the central portion of the state. His death resulted from kidney trouble. The Deadwood Pioneersays: "J. H. Warren, senior editor of the Spearfish Mail, who has been confined to his home for the past six weeks, left on yesterday's Elkhorrt for Algona, Iowa, to try the effects of a change of climate. He was accompanied by Mrs. Warren. Mr. Warren is one of-the oldest newspaper men in the west — oldest in years and "service. He is a correct and vigorous user of the English language and has made the Mail one of the leading papers of the state In editorial influence. The Pioneer trusts that Mr. Warren will return restored to health and continue his work on 'the Mail." Manager Blossom has closed a contract with Walker VVhlteside's manager and that eminent tragedian will play Hamlet in the opera house the evening; of Nov. 26. The guarantee to him is nearly twice as large as has ever before been made to any company since the opening night, but the opera house boys have believed that the people would prefer to go less frequently and have first class entertainments. It will pay everyone to find out about Whiteside in the meantime, and to this end press notices will be published. He is a great actor. His Doming will be the chief event in the history of our opera house. An animated scene entertained the loafers about the postofflce in the forenoon last Thursday. A girl from Allamakee county occupied the central position and was the heroine of the drama. She had evidently left home to escape the young man who came next in the play and who was also a principal. He was bent on marrying her and protested, demanded, begged, and promised in turn, but she was obdurate. She held her post with her back against the'Heise barber pole and he sachetted about her in the hope of finding some loop-hole in her line of defences. The curtain was rung down before the bystanders could decide what the finale was. In repairing his house Fred. Fuller found back between the plaster and sheeting a piece of a copy of the, old Algona Patriot. The date is missing but H. H. McMaster was agent at the Milwaukee and J. D. Mendenhall at the Northwestern. Among the familiar names now no longer heard in town are Dr. Jackson, Henry Wyman, W. P. Coolbaugh, V. H. Stough t J. C. Heckart, T. L. Crose, etc. Grose & Branson, groceries; Nick Winkel, restaurant; P. L. S. Bronson, jeweler; H, S. Vaughn, lawyer; Rev. W. H. Burnard, and Rev. Jos. Mountain, these and dozens of others recall the changes of a few years. Algona, like all other western towns, has had enough people at one time or another to make a city, The Sunday quiet of Minnesota street down near C. M. Doxsee's was rudely broken by the gang of telephone pole planters, who have been at work in these parts. When they went through Algona some weeks ago a tramp held by Marshal Willey was given a job. Sunday they threw hina out of the wagon after knocking him senseless, and dragged him to the ditch by Fred. Fuller's, After the load went by Fred. and Cbas, Nolte went out and revived him with some difficulty. He 'said he had worked ever since leaving Algona with them and had earned $16 and they had refused to pa'y him a dollar, He had asked for money and the row resulted in which he was well nigh done for, He went up town for the sheriff when he could walk, but no further de- velopements are reported, J, R, Jones had bis corn harvester running over in Mr. Brigbt's corn west of the mill last Thursday. A number of noted agriculturists were present., Three especially competent to pass on the machine' were Bros, Starr, Hinchon and Finnell, Mr, Starr said that if the bundles would run through the threshing machine all right the machine was a success, but he didn't see bow they could thresh out the ears without shelling the corn, Mr. Hinohon said that out on his Dakota ranch they r.elied on the pactus and sage brush more and that they got along all right without binding them, but perhaps corn was different, Mr. Finnel began by saying that when he worked at farming, but neyer got farther, f9r ius,t 'then the reaper started up again apd tied up a row pf corn in BO time in nice bundles, ' California in 3!
