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.

Sequel to A Series of Disgraceful Sunday Orgies at That Resort—General Northwest News. Reports indicate that the series of disgraceful Sunday ball games and orgies which have advertised the Lost Island Lake resort the past season culminated a week ago when the Boston Bloomers appeared as the chief attraction. The Ruthven Free Press does not go into details, hut speaks of the "toughs from neighboring towns," It seems that one of these toughs while drunk insulted one of the bloomers, at which she struck him with a ball club she was holding. The resounding whack on his cranium served to call in his friends to the rescue, the other bloomers and their friends lined up and a general melee took place. The marshal is said to have done all he could to stop the row, but why no one was shot if this is so does not appear. The Free Press says Landlord Anthony "expresses himself as being very sorry for the way things were run there by the large number of toughs from neighboring towns," It then concludes: "The editor of this paper does not profess to be an over- strict Sunda'y man himself, but the amount of hooting, hallooing, horse- facing and general carousing indulged In last Sunday evening by some of the strangers, who visited our city on that date, was enough to disgust anyone and make his satanic majesty chuckle with satisfaction." The facts seem to be that Sunday bias been desecrated all summer at this place in a manner to put the average summer resort to shame, and that decent people are coming to shun it entirely. The Soap Men at Prlinglmr. The soap swindlers, who worked Algona, met their deserts at Primghar. They canvassed the. town, selling a dozen bars of soap for $1, at the same time promising to deliver within a week, either an onyx top center table, a plush covered rocking chair, a 64 piece china set, or a banquet lamp. Of course the wonderful offer was made solely to introduce the goods. They sold but nine boxes of the soap before ;he mayor got wind of their game and iiad them promptly arrested, giving ;hem the privilege of exchanging their ill-gotten gains for the soap or going jail. After an attempt at a • bluff jarne they quietly submitted, gave ck the money, got their soap, and ,eft for greener pagtures. Our Poor, Old Jail Again. Bailey: Algona has the meanest jail in the state. The bars across the windows are all of hard wood or iron, and a poor man incarcerated there recently blistered his hand cutting out with a caseknife. They formerly pried the the bars off with a broomstick, but they carry their brooms down to the livery stable and lock them up now where the prisoners can't find them, and the poor fellows have to cut out or stay. The supervisors of Kossuth county should order popple bars for the windows at once. The U. D. M. wants the jailer to feed them with spoons so they can't cut out, but a spoon is a dangerous weapon too, in the Algona jail. _____ Dolllver and Vollmor. As Lafe Young sees it: That young man Vollmer of Davenport aspires to be the democratic Dolliver, but in the democratic state convention at Marshalltown Vollmer uttered one sentence without a period or semicolon which occupied fifteen lines of brevier. There [s at least one difference between Vollmer and Dolliver, Dolliver succeeds in making himself understood and Vollmer never does. Come to think of it, there is another difference, Dolliver has brains, g... * > \ A State Pair Attraction, An attractive and interesting feature of the Iowa state fair will be a series of trap shooting contests at inanimate targets, held at the fair grounds Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 10,11, and 12, These events will be under the supervision of 0.

At 60 years of age Col. Ingersoll is still a young man. He is in the full flush of manhood. In this age of dyspeptic men it is refreshing to look upon his wholesome personality, while his mind has retained all the electrical brightness and splendid vigor which first attracted the attention of the world, and his eloquence still has its famed 'silver tone and enchanting power. Time seems to have fully matured the rich powers with which nature so generously endowed him. Of all the world's noted men Col. Ingersoll is one of the most modest. It is the inherent sympathy with nature that has made him universally popular. By even those who have most vigorously opposed his views he is warmly admired as a man. Among his army of close friends he numbers some of the most eminent divines of the country, including such men as the Rev. Dr. Henry M. Field of the famous family of that name. Above all things Col. .Ingersoll loves liberty, and nothing more than intellectual hospitality. Col. Ingersoll will deliver his great lecture on Abraham Lincoln at Clear Lake Park on Sunday, Sept. 1, in Ringling Bros.' immense tent. The Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway will run a special train to Clear Lake and return on the day of the lecture, Sunday, Sept. 1, leaving Algona at 9:30 a. m., at the very low rate of $1,40, which includes admission to the lecture. It is not often that such an opportunity to hear so distinguished an or- tor is offered our people, and it should be taken advantage of. NORTHWESTERN EXOTJBSIONB.
