They have secured the Cherokee battery and will play the game of their lives. If they win, the third game between the two nines will be worth seeing. J. W. Wadsworth is at Des Moines getting his duties as assistant in- the department of privileges in hand for the state fair opening. He has had important duties in connection with the fair for several years and is a valued assistant in his department. Talk about no fruit trees in these parts! J. W, Sullivan went to Bancroft Monday to defend a man in a case where he was sued for $98 damages by the owner of the farm he is renting, the charge being that his hogs had barked the apple trees to that extent. Geo. B. Cloud, after spending some time at the lakes and nearly catching a fever, came home and .took out a nine pound pickerel from the rather torpid Des Moines. It was weighed and the record is exact. As a fishing resort Algona is in with the best of them this season. W.P.Jones says that at least 50 corn harvesters will be sold in the county this season. He goes to the state fair to look up the matter of buskers and like machines for handling the corn when it is cut and bound. Saving corn fodder a feature of farming from this on.

Mr. Fehrm is a well known Algona carpenter and the bride is said to be an 'attractive young lady. Many congratulations are extended. Prairie chickens were lawful prey Sunday, but it does not interest the editor. His dog, carefully bred from Newfoundland and setter stock, is pronounced by Austin Witham, who took him out, to have a keen nose for gophers but not to give that attention to feathered game which would warrant anyone in following him all day. The Ringling tent at Clear Lake seated 13,000 people and 2,000 more stood up to hear Ingersoll on Lincoln. Many from Algona attended and they say the lecture was heard in all part's of the tent and that the vast audience was sorry when'he quit. Ingersoll is a master of platform oratory, and his lecture on Lincoln has many fine passages. Des Moines had some big bicycle races Monday. In the two mile handicap race for B class men Bert Edmonds started with Mockett of Lincoln, Neb., Stevens'of Ottumwa, Marshall of Ottumwa, Larson and Sutherland of,Des Moines. The Register says: "It was a great race from the start, and when Edmonds of Des Moines beat the great flyer from Ottumwa, Orlando Stevens, the crowd went wild. Edmonds came home in 6:08, with Stevens a length behind and Larson close up." Frank Harrison, a bright three-year- old son of William and Gertie Harrison and grandson of Algona's one time landlord, died suddenly last week Monday. Our correspondent writes: He had been playing around a few days previous, but still complaining of not feeling well, Monday morning he was taken with a convulsions and died at about 12 o'clock Monday night. He was an uncqmmdnly bright little fellow and so watchful of his little sister, By bis aged grandfather be will be sadly missed. Nothing suited him better than to go with grandpa, They all have the fullest sympathy that one can, give from their host of friends, ,' Iowa is all right, Here is the state report for it: On the whole the week has been exceedingly favorable for ripening late corn and potatoes," and fop the growth of grass, Cutting early planted corn is in progress in all districts, and the larger portion of the crop is now ready for the harvester. Some of the late-planted fields, especially in the northern districts, would be much benefited by two to three weeks pf favorable weather, AU reports show marked iroprovepjQnt in pasturage and meadows, and in some localities a second crop of hay* will be out.

A little window Was raised, and I stepped forward to state my business. Uncott- Bciously t leaned against the sill of the window, which offended the inspector In charge considerably, * ' "What's your name?" he thundered. Still leaning on the sill, I gave him my name honestly enough. He then remarked to some pel-sou inside that we were tiot accustomed to such places evidently, and called out, "Stand back, will you I'' Back I stood, He cried out again, "Take off your hat I'* My hat came off iustanter. Still again: "You come in hereasif youwasameeleeonary. You're not. You're a casual." I was as meek as could well be. Ryborg was itching to grab the inspector with his long arms. The next question was as to where we had slept the, night before. "Straw stack," I replied. "Jtfone of your impudence 1 You slept out. Why don't you say so? Have you got any money?" "A hap'enuy, sir." "Hand it in." In it went. Then I had to tell my trade, which was that of a sailor, and naturally the next question was as to where I was bound. "To Ameriky, sir, if I can ever get there." '' You 're goin to tramp it, ar en't you ?'' "Yes, sir; that's my intention." But for the life of me I could not see how I was to reach America that way. I was so frightened that I would have tbld him anything he wonted. When he was through with us, a kind hearted attendant took us in hand, gave us some gruel and bread, a bath, clean night shirts,- and then a cell apiece, in which we slept very well. As there were only four inmates that morning we were needed for the cleaning up, and so escaped stone breaking, which I dreaded exceedingly, and were put at various light occupations—ror rather I was. Ryborg was the victim of his strength. Our breakfast consisted of the same dish as our supper of .the night before. I was soon busy as general fireman, scrubber, knife 'cleaner, coal carrier, dish washer and helper of my sister sufferer, Mrs. Murphy, as she washed her task of towels and shirts. At noon we had pea soup and bread. I enjoyed it, but Ryborg did not. The poor fellow was feeling badly.. He had had to scrub nearly 20 cells, and the bending over incident to such a feat had nearly broken his back. At dinner he said plaintively, "Plynt, I wont to go home." "So do I, "I replied, "but I fancy we're wonted here till tomorrow morning." This proved to be the case, but he felt better in the afternoon and got through comfortably, wheeling nearly, a ton of stone from some of the cells to the general pile. He earned hip "keep," if ever any poor prisoner did. I fear I was more shiftless, for about the middle of the afternoon the attendant who was with me at the furnace said: "You might as well rest. Just keep your eye on the fires, that's alL " It was kind of him, and as I had at least earned my pea soup and gruel I took his advice. He was kinder to me. I think, because I gave him a corncob pipe which he had had to take away from me the night before. During the day he bad asked me several questions about it, and I said, "It's a very decent sort of pipe—coolinlike, you know," "Doesn't Mark Twain always smoke one o' them pipes?" said he^ "Blest if I know," said I, "but loan well think it" "I'm a great friend of Mark Twain," he pursued, "an I'm a-thinkin o' gettin one o 1 them pipes, jest out of respect for him," "Well," said I, "permit me in the name of your respect to present you with my pipe, Besides you've got it anyhow. " He thanked me profusely, and promised to keep it forever, Later in the day he reported it to be just as I had paid, "sort o' coolin like," Andbe was a good friend to me all the rest of my stay in the Netting Hill station. On Wednesday morning we were turn' ed loose with our two ha'pennies. We were both so happy that we decided to get off. the road that very day, We ha$ been tramps for three weeks, a,nd bad walked most of tbis time fully J5 miles a day, 80 we looked UP my friend At the Temple, and in a. fQW hours were respectable again, That same day I took my tramp oiotbes out te the oaeua J 'ward and presented them to my friend the attendant.
