Court meets Tuesday, Oct. 1, with Judge Thomas on the bench for his regular fall visit. The adjourned meeting of the county board is to be held to get the new election boards appointed. The bulk of the corn is out of the way of frost. Ten days Of Warm weather will ripen even the fodder corn. Algona has not lost a typhoid fever case, and there have been a number. That is a good showing for the doctors. The new court house vaults are nearly done. The officials will have plenty of room for the records hereafter. ••.' '• ' .•••;•'•'."';''••'., . •• ' A. D. Clarke is building a small building near the normal school. Mrs. Hiram Wright will rent it for her home. It is rumored that a prominent business man lost $5,000 on, wheat in , Chicago lately speculating on the board of trade. Marriage licenses have been issued tp.Ohas. H.

Some days he . rests easier and .some days he is worse. W. L. Joslyn is back after six weeks at his old home in Sycamore, 111. He came back by way of Dututh, taking the boat from .Chicago. Gardner Cowles was in Marshalltown Saturday to talk with the manager of the Iowa Central railway. He spent Sunday in Des Moines. The normal school will have an attendance of 75 this term and expects 150 each term for the next two. It averaged 74i a term the past year. The county fair comes this year on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. The two big days will be Wednesday and Thursday instead of Thursday and Friday as heretofore. The editors meet at Bancroft Saturday and have a good program of discussions. Every editor and his wife should be there. THE UPPER DBS MOINES will be on deck for one; ' Several Congregational preachers have tendered their services to Rev. Davidson to supply his pulpit in bis illness, and with E. P. McElrov they will keep regular services hereaf tor. The democratic county convention meets next Wednesday. If any rumors are afloat as to possible or probable Candidacies THE UPPER DES MOINES has missed them. Aspirants are not numerous this year. J, W. Wadsworth writes that more space has been rented for exhibits at the state fair than ever before and that the show is the best Iowa has ever made- The last special train goes down tomorrow morning. E. V, Sweating has a suit against the city hanging fire to see whether it will be held liable in the Elmore case. A client feels he has been "composed upon," as a former resident used to say, when bis feelings were ruffled, John Reed reports an enthusiastic meeting of the Thirty-second Iowa veterans at Eagle Grove, He says there were more of bis company present than have met since the war, The papers ba,ve wade v^ry full reports, Manager Blossptn has made a contract with Ida Van Cortland, and her company will play three nigjits during the first week in January, Hep kuorotia Borgia will be remembered by all who beard it when she was here before as one of the besji plays AJgonn has had, {The pew oil wagon Is on the road and looks as bright as a new brass pin* Oil is hauled by Charlie Winkie in It to tJ^e neighboring townf, reaching each one pjjoe a. week, Jt is ebeape? fop tbe to deliver that way tfian to oil, sefidus criminal arrest would have to be followed by iacarcefatioa at Mason City, and that is very expensive. The cotittty this suffiflier seems likely to miss a big circus and that has taken easily 18,000 out every year before, Let us put our circus tickets into a new jail, It.seems that Pomeroy, theGermania burglar, smokes six bunches of cigarettes a day when he can get them, and that he Is not considered real bright by those who know him, We don't know as these facts have any connection, but they are suggestive. An addition to Algona's facilities hns been made since Monday. The American Express company now carries express from Chicago and Des Moines on the 8:18 morning train as well as on the afternoon train. This helps considerably to secure quick service. August Heyer was killed in a threshing machine near Whittemore last Thursday. ' He was pushing the bundles Into the feed with his foot and got caught in some way and was dragged into the cogs. He was badly bruised and lived but a short time. E. B. Eddy is up from Lebanon, Mo., and yesterday was extolling the beauties of the south on the street. Dr. MoCormack and John Reed, who campaigned in his sedtion during the war, were curious listeners. The doctor says there wasn't a drink of good water in the state there. when : .be was Toe state crop l!«lJetiB is cheering; Beports show tijaj wm Jn was. ipoM ge, pf corn, j§ mush better o, Dr. McCoy, D. A. Haggard, G. W. Eddy, and C. A. Brewster are the Koa- suth contingent at Louisville so far as known. Louisville is in gay attire, according to reports. A big barbecue which will feed everyone is one of the 'attractions. A sign of the times also is the ample provision for the colored troops, Dr. McCormack has a curious reminder of the war, which he picked up at Forsythe, Mo., thirty one years ago. It is a copy of Paine's ''Age of Reason" with two cannon ball holes through it. The doctor does not express any opinion as to the likelihood of the puncturing of this book being providential. C. B. Matson has a copy of the Rolla paper which tells about a society of lowans down there. Fully 60 Iowa people were present at the picnic, Messrs. Matson and Evans among them. This is a good recommend for their part of Missouri. Mr. Matson returned yesterday with some land lookers from Spencer. A spelling school is sufficiently in the line of education to be entitled to a free notice even' though it costs ten .gents to attend it. It will be held tomorrow night at the Methodist church and Gardner Cowles and C. M. Doxsee will chose sides. It is expected that the spelling will be of a kind that even the hew Century and Standard dictionaries never dreamed of. The populists met yesterday and nominated Thos. Hanna of Burt for the legislature. If he will not accept a committee will fill the vacancy. A. B. Sheldon of Burt was nominated for supervisor, and Wm, Strickler of Burt for superintendent. The convention was not largely attended, and unless the democrats endorse the ticket it is not likely to cut much figure. A Louisiana paper has correspondence from Call's Landing, the name of Ambrose A. Call's rice plantation, which bears the initials of Archie Hutchison. In one item he challenges any plantation 1,000 acres of as good rice in one field as the Call plantation, and it is said the challenge cannot be met, .The rice crop is now in harvest and is very big this year. From the 1,000 acres will come at least 15,000 barrels of rice. The Presbyterian meetings which have been held in the Swedish Methodist church during the past two weeks closed last Sabbath evening. A Sabbath school was organized of 48 scholars and six teachers, which will meet in the Swedish Methodist church every Sabbath at 8 p. m. All interested in the work of bringing the children and young people under the gospels influence are urged to come and help. Everybody is welcome. Frank Pomeroy was bound over by 'Squjre Clarke Monday to meet the S -and jury on a charge of burglary, e entered of Albert Meyer in Germanta, while he was away from home, and Mrs. Meyers going out of the back door got the deputy sheriff to come over. Pomeroy was caught in the house, He yms partially drunk, and what he was after seems to be in dispute. He made no defense and will await the grand jury. S. S, Sessions ie bis attorney, Geo, Helf rich died at bis , home in Prairie last Wednesday at 65 years of age, ,He was a we}l known resident and was loader of a peculiar society of a dozen people who never married. They came to the county }7 years ago and owned a big farm in pommon, They were thrifty apd njajje money, fefifeeted for ft Defies of f weita ifgtWes tttfie by the Sdttnal School, IJhilneftt Men Ar»e SecUfed ftfid they Will Covet- ft Wide gafigg &f topics, i which wae Uhemlly. spent 4 B bulgin gave $UPQ to ifte new „ was JoslryinentaHo i mgm^>T»'-":;^^ --,-„ .^ •-. nnMIBMIIIiilMMMMMb'V, 4 '*/.t *»/ *.n Vr 3 ZW|S 1 ?y. ! ??S I f.ST'IKX»> **.','/,'. J" THE UfPEtt DBS Moitiss is eflabled* td give & fuller announcement this Week of the lecture course td be given between Sept* 18, afld Atoril 16, by the normal school. It will consist of 12 lectures by thfee lecturers' endorsed and sent out by the American Educa* tional Lecture bureau, the whole course to cost ticket holders but $i.?5. It is not yet decided where the lectures will be giveto, but one of the churches will doubtless be chosen. Three lectures will be oti American history, to be given by W. C. Webster, for two years a lecturer for the university of Chicago. His topics will be The Struggle for Independence, Making a New Constitution, and The War of 1812. Three .lectures will he devoted to literature to be given by Hervey White of Chicago, formerly of Harvard University, His subjects have hot been chosen, but his list encloses 'such interesting topics as Emerson and the Concord School, Our Western and Local Artists, etc. Prof. Edward S. Morse of the Boston- Museum of Pine Arts says: "Those who have heard Mr. White lecture speak in the highest terms of his expressive and interesting manner. I have known him for some time and can testify as to his clear and graphic style." Three lectures will be devoted to social economy, G. O. Virtue of Harvard University discussing Industrial Darwinism^, Trusts, Pools,, and Combines, Tramps, Socialism. All of these men are highly commended by school menandby the press. The course as a wbole will open a wide field of thought and investigation not only to the normal students, but also to the" public. _ PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. Mr. and Mrs. G. W.

I looked and. saw a splendid pageantry Of beautiful women and of lordly men Taking their pleasure in a flowery plain Where popples and the red anemone And many another leaf of crumolsy Flickered about their feet and gave their stain To heels of iron or satin, and the grain Of silken garments floating far and free As in the danae they wove themselves or strayed By twos together or lightly smiled and bowed Or eourtsied to each other or else played At games of mirth and pastime, unafraid In their delight, and all so high and proud They seemed scarce of the earth whereon they trod. I looked again and saw that flowery space Stirring, as if alive, beneath the tread That rested now upon an old man's head And now upon a baby's gasping face Or mother's bosom or the rounding grace Of a girl's throat, and what had seemed the red . Of flowers was blood In gouts and gushes shed From hearts that broke under that frolic pace, And now and then from out the dreadful flooi An arm or brow was lifted from the rest, Aa if to strike in madness or implore For mercy, and anon some suffering breast Enared from the mass and sank, and as before The revelers above them thronged and pressed. • —William Dean Howolls. SHE WAS AFRAID. And Took Particular Care to Outwit Those Wicked Night Doctors. Mme. Kirkholder's servant was getting ready to go home for the night. It was about 0 o'clock in the evening. Just aa her bonnet was on her head and her hand on the door to depart, Mme. Kirk- holder noticed that the face was aglow with grease — a liberal coat — from ear tc ear. •"Tut, tut, Katie I" remonstrated Mme. Kirkholder, "Wash yonr face before you go. You mustn't go home with 8uoh a looking face as that. " Katie muttered something, and taking off her bonnet turned to the sink, as if About to make the improvements suggested. It chanced that just as Katie was again about to depart Mine. Kirk- holder was amazed to find her countenance even more tremendous in greas« than before, "What on earth is the matter with your face, Katie?" asked Mme. K, "Why don't you wash away fcat grease?" "I'i&e afeard of dem yar night dog. tahfl," said Katie faintly. "What's that?" 1 queried Mme. K, "The night doctors.
