This is "THE UPPER DES MOINES' quarterly collection week. The Woodwards begth at the opera house next Monday eveningi 4 Bancroft is getting tee from Algona, the local supply having failed. The iron bridge for the St, Jo. crossing vvill be on the grounds this week. It will be worth a trip to the fair to see the corn busker and shredder work. J. M. Cowan has the contract to put in the new Germania bank. It will be a One building. Don't fail to see O. D. Woodward in the new comedy drama Monday evening, My Kentucky Home. Carl Wauge and Fred. Foster have dissolved partnership and Carl will open a barber shop in Bui't. Kossuth county is getting old when two golden weddings among the pioneers are noted in one week. The Katn boys have bought the SUB. Laird farm in Plum Creek. It lies north of the Kain homestead. The Wiltsey adultery case is on for this term of court. D. C. Chase of Webster City is Wiltsey's attorney. J. D. Shadle is out at Hartley building another big residence. He built one last year and Jas Orr painted it. The Milwaukee road offers a round trip ticket to the Atlanta exposition for §45.35, good from Sept. 18 to Dec. 31. Court opens next Tuesday with Judge Thomas on the- bench. The lawyers and jurymen will miss Kossuth's biggest fair. E. G. Bowyer sold a four-year-old to horse buyers last week for $100 to ship to market. That is pretty good for these times. Diphtheria is reported in the Gumber family in Irvington. Dr. Pride tried ant'i-toxin in one case and it was very effective. We expect that after B. F. Reed and J. J. Wilkinson get at those brush in the fair ground today it vvill .look like a field of prairie blue grass. Entries of horses and stock began to come in Monday for the fair. Secretary Butler is prepared to make a big entry list and will have the opportunity. Lyman B. Parsball, democratic candidate for state superintendent, and J. J. Ryan vvill speak Monday evening at the court house. This is the opening gun. Next Tuesday the county fair opens. If it don't rain this year and don't .free^e too hard there will be a display to open the eyes of the oldest inhabitant. C. B. Matson is up from Missouri again and says his country is all right. Missouri is having a boom of its own and lots of northerners are going there for cheap land. Gov. Jackson has appointed Harvey Ingham a delegate_ to the road parliament to be held in the hall of the house of representatives at Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 17-19. Bailey of the Britt Tribune put his ear to the telephone wire and heard Mrs. J. G. Graham play the piano in Bancroft. He says he could hear every note distinctly. Lightning knocked, the chimney off J, T. Chrischilles' house in the storm last week. There used to be a theory that tall trees act as lightning rods. It is being exploded, J. J, Ryan has not yet decided to run for legislature. He says he has plenty of business to attend to that he cannot afford to neglect. Better make it unanimous for Samuel Mayne, The brick work on the new .block is going up and the front promises to be very handsome, It was planned by T, H. Conner and will be different from any of the others on the street. The Oriole Opera company gave a high grade presentation of Said Pasha last evening to a fair audience, They are the best opera company ever in Algona and should have had a full house, The Woodward Theatre company, which played at the fair last year, will open a week's engagement at the opera house next Monday evening. They are a good company and put on good plays. A fast horse don't always make a man rich. The Bancroft Register says: Cooper, owner of Ida, M., is said to have quietly, left Germania for parts un- Unpwn, owing to bis inability to meet his bills, H, J. Edens has resigned his tion with the Algona Deposit and association and has been, secured by the Sioux City company as travelling auditor at a salary of $1,200 a year and expenses. The case against Heath is lively to come on at this term of court. It will bring out the tacts of the sensation a! shooting scrape at Bwtia the summer, stelaep, the shooter, is aisg bepd ever to meet the graad ' T« '-—-—••• - — " - '-• -ffip years and those who predicted that the town would come to a standstill when the new road went through were mistaken. It is putting in some hand- sortie business fronts. The famous Bohn fence case will cortie on at this term. This is where a Northwestern snow fence blew down and let Mr. Bobn's Cattle out on the track where they were killed. He claims that the snov* fetice was not a legal stock fence. Painful outcries attracted attention on the street yesterday nfterhoon. Dr. Kennefick was loosening the elbow _oint of Mr. Miller's arm, which was jroken three weeks ngo. ( Chloroform ailed to wholly quiet him, and the )aln was intense. Hon. W. A. Derthick, deputy lect- trer of the national Grange and former 'ood commissioner of Ohio, vvill spenk at the Court house on Saturday at 1 o'clock. His talk will be on the bene- its of organization for farmers and will be non-political, Aaron Rutherford was jerked out of lis buggy Monday evening by a colt ie was leading 'With a halter, and one wheel of the buggy ran over him. His 'ace was badly scratched but no bones were broken. His many friends will hope to see him out soon. We neglected to note last week that little girl has arrived at Ralph filler's home in Stratford. His old riends of the matrimonial association sent him a telegram of congratulations, while J. B. Winkel is feeling very proud of being a grandfather. Marriage licenses have been issued :o Herman Bohn and Mary Legan- :iausen, Aaron R. Hamlin and Olive Swords, Geo. A.. Klenk and Mary M. Yost, John Dewen and Mrs. Emma M. Jones, O. L. Harper and Emma Smith, Sebastien Mack and Margaret Winderl. Henry Nestrum and Aug. Brown are neighbors over south of- town across ihe river. Brown's children threw rotten watermelon on Nostrum's children. Nostrum pummeled Brown. 'Squire Clarke settled the difficulty by assessing Nestrum $5 and costs, which tie paid. That $3,000 law suit against Algona don't materialize. At least no notice [HIS been served and it is now too late for this term. Lawyer Graham could Imrdly wait to get out the papers when he was here, but Somehow the cooler atmosphere of Blue Earth has frost- nipped his zeal. Mrs. H. A. Ercanbrack of Anamosa, who organized the Algona lodge of the Eastern Star, was recently elected treasurer of the national body for the third time in Boston, and at the big banquet in Fanueil hall she spoke on Our Brothers," receiving high praise from the Boston papers. Chairman Chubb is down from the north end_ of the county, where he has been waging war on Russian thistles. He reports that all of those Judge Cook reported have been destroyed and that quite generally the ground has been cleared. Mr. Chubb has done the county a service in his raid against this pest. The normal school has added the 24 volume Century dictionary to its library. This dictionary is the most elaborate and best that has ever been published. It has also added the Century dictionary of geographical and biographical names in four volumes, and a four volume 'history of the leaders and battles of the civil war. Rev. J. P. Coleman, who was about Algona a great deal in Algona's college days, writes an entertaining account of Dr, Barr's trip over the mountains with him. The doctor's old friends will especially enjoy it. Rev. Coleman adds a note in which he says he is now laid up from a fall of 30 feet in a canon at Napa. He will recover. Miss Ella D. Chaffee, who taught in the Algona normal school some years ago, was married at Mt. Ve'rnon, Sept. 10, to Rev. A. R. Paul of Clarence. Miss Chaffee's father performed the ceremony and Frank M, Chaffee offered prayer, They go to Xenia, Ohio, where Rev, Paul has a year's study to finish before graduation. Jos, Hudson, Dr, Hudson's youngest son, has just completed one of the best looking business buildings in the county at Bancroft. It was planned by T. B. Conner and is certainly an attractive and well arranged store. The Weetenhayer clothing business is now housed in it and "Jo" has it in hia charge. He is making a very successful merchant. Coroner Morse was called to Buffalo township Monday to vjevv the remains of Bert, Challanan, who died in a barn suddenly. He took A. H, Paine and B. H. Anderson for jury and went to J. R. Cruse'8 farm. It seems Chaljanan had been unwell fen 1 a year or more, bad at one time been in the Cook county hospital, was not well Sunday, and while the Cruses were away died of heart failure, Perry Burlinguine has good crops this year and he proposes that his MentjB shall know it back in N^w York, He fitted up a long box Jss,t swk, oailefl in it eome corn, *wheati oats, onions, cabbage, and grass, ' * eent it to the county fojj> at ' New Turk, which 99^9 this weef; vfctfftted fey MF.

A-. f fink slore ftt Wesley. It ootaesup on coubtef claims for bif damages against the creditors for sue- ing out wrongful altacht&ehts. They on the other hand-will sustain 'the Validity of the attachments, while Carson, Pif ie & Co. will Intervene as against B.U the others asking that the gooae bought of them by Frink be returned on the ground tbnt they were hot legally obtained. The cases altogether fake in every Inw firm in Algona and several from abroad. Some people chase fortune and miss it and some have fortune chase them and still get awaj>. Among the latter is Gottlieb Schuerle, who was in Algona some months ago, and who is now non-comeatable' although $10,000 is here in the bank awaiting him. Theo. Chrischilles has had his affairs in charge and has secured the money from a German estate, but can get no trace of Schuerle since he was at Buffalo Center or thereabouts. If Schuerle knew vvhat had happened his feet wouldn't mnke prints in soft mud on his way to Algona. Algona's three enterprising bootblacks got n 25 cent check written in lead pencil a few days ago, and taking it out in a secluded spot they rubbed out the pencil marks nnd wrote in $2.50. They then presented it to a business house in town and it was cashed, and one of the bunks took it later. The bunk books, however, disclosed the discrepancy and the forgery was detected. The boys on being notified at once raised the money and \yere not prosecuted, on account of their youth and on account of their parents. It is a serious offense for three young boy?, nnd it is a question whether a term at the reform school would not be in the interests of good order. Money.

The Xorinal School Offers Two Puz- zlcrB and Will Give a Term's Tuition to tlie "Winner. The normal school contributes to the county fair a couple of special premiums for the educational department. Here are its problems and the rewards it offers: 1. For what sum must a five-day note, bearing interest at six per cent, be drawn, so that when discounted at eight per cent, the proceeds will be §9,500? 2. I have an Algona 6 per cent, bond for §.500, dated Jan. 1, 1895, due Jan. 1, 1896. On July 1, 1895, I sell the bond to B. F. Reed in such a way as to give him eight per cent, on his investment. Mr. Reed borrows the money, needed to pay for the bond, from the batik, at ten per cent, for 90 days. For. how much must he give his note? To the pupil in any public school who sends the best correct solution for the first of the above problems, we offer free tuition for one term in the Northern Iowa Normal school. To the public school teacher who sends the best correct solution for the second of the above problems, we offer free tuition for one terra in the Northern Iowa Normal and Commercial school, Algona, Iowa. All solutions must be mailed to A. J. Lilly, principal of the Northern Iowa Normal school, Algona, Iowa, not later than Oct. 1, 1895. The name and address of the sender must be placed on the outside of the envelope, The sealed envelopes containing the solutions will be submitted to the judges appointed by the president of the society. This contest is open to every teacher and every public school pupil in the northwest. Why may it not be you? Try it. Do NOT say, " I must pay debts first." Because you are in debt is the very strongest reason why you should have your life insured. Examine the Royal Union. J. L. Donahoo, district manager, Algona, Iowa, A Good Milch Cow Wanted.
