The school board.met Monday evening and secured Prof. Gilchrist for the remainder of the present term of school and _took no further- 'action towards getting a successor to Prof. Dixson. The schools are fortunate in being able to secure so able an instructor as the professor, and so long as he will remain there need be no hurry in getting a new principal. Next spring the best men in the state will be foot loose and Algona is a desirable point. Algona should have the best. Cards announcing the marriage of J. R. Blossom came to his host of Algona friends last week. He was married on Tuesday to Miss Jennie Nunns of Hartley. The Spencer News says: "After a wedding tour of a week or two Mr. and Mrs. Blossom will return to Spencer and establish their home in the Cardell residence on west Second street. Mr. Blossom has long been recognized as one of the leading and substantial business men of our city, while the bride, during the last four years a teacher in the west side schools, has established a reputation as an exceedingly successful educator. The News extends sincere congratulations," "Jake" is one of the best men in northern Iowa and we wish him all the happiness that is undoubtedly in store for him, WHILE attending the state fair at Des Moines last week, Wilfrid P, Jones made arrangements with the Keystone Manufacturing company of Sterling, I1L, to exhibit their corn busker and shredder at the Kossuth county fair the first week in October.

The fifst gatte there 1 stood 1 to 1) abd the second game at AlgOha stood 11 to 0, owing partly to the Clarion boys not being used to a rough groundi The Clarion nine are the best home nine in this part of the statej and their defeat here Was the first they have suffered, The game here was played Thursday and a big crowd was out, The r Algona boys got eight scores in the first four innings. But after that the Clarion boys picked up and in the closing five innings Al- -ona got only three Scores. The larion boys could not hit Maytum's balls, but came near two or three scores. It was the. best'game of ball ever played on the grounds. Kotes of Sport. Glldersleevo won the free-for-all running race at Garner in two heats, time 52 and Bll.

The Waterloo Reporter thinks our boy Crum had better come back to Iowa and begin to build up a reputation in the law. Wefors beat Crurn Saturday at both^ the 100 and 220 yard races. If Crum does not win next Saturday he will not get on the team to run against the Englishmen. John Winkel still has his racing blood. He says he will match a horse he owns against any horse hereabouts for a three-quarters or mile race or dash for any sum from $500 . up. He says this is business from the word go. Germania Standard: The noted horse, Gildersleeve, is doing good work at different points in this part of the state. He easily won at Garner and' shut the entire field out at Forest City, breaking the track record at the latter place. He also attends the county fair, at Algona. The Garner club came over yesterday with eight men and took Williams of Algona for the ninth. We waited till Williams made a score for them at the sixth inning When the score stood 20 to 1. When the return game is played the printer or real estate nine should go over. Algona plays Mason City at the fair grounds Saturday. It will be a hot game, as Baker, the late Emmetsburg pitcher, is with the Mason Citys. The Emmetsburg club went to pieces after Algona got done with them, and Baker will bring one of the best aggregations in these parts with him. Bailey says: " We.believe Bro. Ingham is wrong in saying that Farmer Burns is a whisky drinker. When he was here he would not drink under any consideration, and those who know him well say he never tastes it. We heard him say that no man could hold up under the vigorous training of an athlete and drink whisky, and he prophesied the downfall of Corbettfor this cause, and said that was the cause of Sullivan's downfall." This item about Burns' drinking should have been credited to the Carroll Herald. illfW STOVE WORKS It?' perfect •i ***.., . . .
