When S; 0. Platt, out- erstwhile Lu* Verne editor, went to Iowa Palls to engage in journalism not long ago, he Was' possessed with ideas of the propriety of things acquired during his occasional visits to Algona to assist in adjusting the rather tangled political relations of early years. Iowa Falls has been compared to Algona ^occasionally in beauty, and nature has indeed done a great deal for it, but Mr. Platt found some butcher shops along the banks of the classic Iowa within the city limits, which both his eyes and nose testified were a blot on the town- site and which he decided ought to he abated. He accordingly took up a fight which no one before had had courage for, although the shops have been an unquestioned nuisance for years, and is now victorious, the city council having given theni 30 'days in which to vamoose. The butchers all stood 'together in the fight and have boycotted Mr. Platt so that for some weeks he has had to go without meat. It has been a's memorable as the Fort Dodge cow ordinance fight and every paper in the United States has had some item about Bro. Platt's sudden conversion to vegetarianism. He is a fighter when he Starts out, and Iowa Falls people have him .to thank for a needed reform as well as for a great improvement In the Sentinel since he took it. J _ _ I'rof. Kent's Mud Lake Farm. Down below Webster City Prof. Kent bought and drained Mud Lake. The past season he has employed 15 hands most of the time, but now has only six men at work. At present they are gathering the cucumber crop, which is immense, fifteen acres being devoted to this vegetable. They have already filled a 40-barrel vat with salted cucumbers, which will be used for pickles, and Mr. Kent expects to fill two more; He has nearly 30 acres of muskmelons and watermelons, and -.the yield is enormous. But he has experienced considerable annoyance from boys stealing and destroying his melons. He has about 150 acres of corn, and harvested oats from 300 acres. Considerable of the ground is devoted to the raising of peanuts, celery, turnips, onions, tomatoes, potatoes, etc. The Tribune gives this report and says the farm is paying. A Female Swindler. A lady, who claimed that her store building had been burned down in Whittemore, was in Cor with last week soliciting subscriptions to start in business again. From there she went to Britt and told the same story. After she had gone suspicion began' to creep into the minds of the people, and some one telephoned to find out the .truth of her statement, and the answer came back that the whole thing was a clever fabrication. The Crescent says: "Investigation followed, when it was discovered that at Algona she gave out that she was from Spencer. At Spencer she said she was from South Dakota. The news was telephoned to Britt, at which place she was arrested and made to fork over all she had taken in there, about $15. How much she got in Corwith is not known," A Sprightly Old Man, Ledyard has a man past three score and ten who is still in the active ranks, His name is James Fletcher. The Leader says of him; He is past 76 years old, and has stack ad 130 acres of very heavy grain for the boys this harvest, In six hours he also out 10 acres of grass that made 16 tons of hay, A very sprightly man for bis age, He was recently matched to walk two miles against a man of 40 for $100, and the other fellow backed out, Mr. Fletcher then offered to walk one-fourth of the, distance backwards. A Norm lo'Wft Fruit Over at Clear Lake L. S. Johnson has a fruit farm. This season he had 2,575 quarts of strawberries, J,684' of currants, 636 of gooseberries, J,6J6 of raspberries, and 200 of blackberries, in all ft total of 6,651 quarts, Some years he has picked 9,000 quarts of strawberries alone, and if this bad been a good year he would have had altogether 20,000 quarts of small fruit. BUB BP\TO by Cattle, Mrs. Ina Taylor o! Ruthvep, ter of G, H.

The United Workmen had a grand time last Wednesday at the fair grounds— so grand that their picnics are to be a regular September event hereafter and that next year a regular field day program will be issued. In addition to the usual out door amusements the workmen will introduce track athletics and jumping bars, ing hurdle races, and putting hammer will be the order of the The Burt people came down early and at 10 o'clock the band led the procession out of town. Arrived at the grounds a speech was expected from Grand Master Graham, but he had made a mistake in the date and was not present. C. Byson, H. B. Hallock and J. M. Cowan filled in the time most acceptably. A big lunch dinner then attracted attention after which the sports opened with throwing a ,60 pound scale weight, at which some 20 workmen contested, Bhick- smith Campbell of Algona taking the watch charm. Lots of fun was then created by a trotting race between the Tennant and Vincent horses, and more fun was created by the women trying to throw a base ball. Mrs. Pinckney Ward threw like a man and won the spoon, Mrs. Studley and Mrs. Danson also making quite presentable efforts. The dozen others who tried ;had varying degrees of unsuccess. A 100 yard foot race was won by- Jas. Stowe of Burt. The most exciting part .of it was a side race for the cigars between Dr. Morse and Charlie Winkle, the doctor coming out ahead. A half mile running race was close between the Potter boys' horses, Peter Christiansen's being pretty well behind. The ball game was all for Burt, Jus. Stowe getting on twists the Algona workmen had not even dreamed of. It was a pleasant day and everybody enjoyed it. The Burt Monitor says of the occasion: The Algona band furnished excellent music for the occasion, which was very enjoyable and attended by a fair-sized crowd and which is no doubt the beginning of an annual gathering which will increase in interest and numbers in proportion to the popularity of the increasing and popular order. The Burt lodge extends thanks to the Algona brethren for : their hospitality and for their enterprise in carrying out the program of the day, which will be pleasantly remembered.
