In spite of all this and in spite of what is Called the right of local self government in Iowa the governor called the state legislature in special session, and the legislature, by almost unanimous vote, adopted a special statute for the express purpose of interfering with home rule in Dallas. The unanimity with which the Chicago papers, as •quoted elsewhere, endorse this action may be accepted as indicative of public sentiment the country over. The American people take no stock in this talk about the right qf localities to rule in matters which are state wide. They honor Gov. Culbertson and the Texas legislature for stopping prize fighting no matter what Dallas wanted, they will honor New York if the republicans win this fall on the issue of a state wide Sunday law no matter what New York City wants, and they will honor the party in Iowa which has courage enough to make a state wide liquor law the issue, and which, when successful, has -courage enough to enforce it whatever Dubuque and Davenport may think about it. COL. HENDERSON will give the people a rousing speech next week Thursday-evening. It will be his first visit to Algona. No one has been named to take J. J. Ryan's place on the democratic ticket. In the Palo Alto-Clay district and in the Emmet-Dickenson-Osceola ^district there are no democratic candidates for the legislature. The campaign is not very exciting in these parts. PROF. O. H. BAKER, who is now editing the Indianola Times, is a very radi- 4»l prohibitionist. At the same time he recognizes that the choice in Iowa is between Gen. Drake and Judge Babb and that bolting the former or voting some third party ticket is a waste of powder or worse. He urges his coworkers to look to the legislature. " If we lose the legislature we lose our cause —that's the long and short of it. Drake must be preferred to Babb. Drake says he will not oppose any legislation 'on the liquor question. Babb is for saloons and distillers and proclaims it everywhere," Prof. Baker is' very strongly endorsing Gen. Drake. THE deadlock between Humboldt and Focahontas republicans ended in no nomination for the legislature. That is surely a boyish outcome. Each county will now doubtless get a name on the ticket by petition. The Warren-Adair senatorial deadlock ended scarcely better, The Adair man won on a secret 'ballot by one vote, and immediately all Ihe "Warren county men took oath that they voted for their own man, leaving it certain that some delegate bad perjured himself or that there had been in the balloting, The Code provides lot drawing for election dead" locks, and we believe that lot drawing would have dignified either of these • conventions, FISH COMMISSIONER DELEVAN is .^ravelling the state along with Judge other politicians, He is en- a uttje state flsh law without reference to local sentiment, or local temptations to fish, while they are telling the people that no state law can be enforced or ought to be enforced except ty local DRAKE'S speeches are making He is easily on the stump and ftltbejudgg, gays'a telly prepare^ legality cards? -.,..- -, —.„, ftit a touch here and there, sprtiee It up find sell it at a big advafice.

Probably no matt could buy Sotu B. & Brown's farm. Why cot? Because he has beautified it till he and his wouldn't let it go! Want to 'live always' there. A $100 porch will, of ten sella town house for $1,000 advance, tt sets off the house. A lawn, that doesn't cost much, adds many hundreds of dollars to the selling price of the place. In fact, nothing in this world, outside or inside a house, commands such a market price as beauty, good taste. If you should try to buy the Ed. White farm, the Brockvvay place, Alex. Gibson's place, and we dare say many another fine farm in this county, you'd have to pay a round sum for something besides the mere soil. You'd pay, and gladly, a big extra for the 'loveliness'wrought there by" good taste. So it' pays' to be fine. Your thought will follow on and comment on the exchangeable value of ft beautiful face, a lovely figure, a commanding presence in a man, beauty of life, and conduct and character. The beautiful pays." • »•» * Sam Clark has resigned editorial work to take a congressional vacation.

E. Dele van, made an important capture on Swan lake in Emmet county Thursday. He arrested and convicted four violators of the fish law and captured two large seines, one of them 250 feet long and the other 200 feet. Today on Eagle lake, also in Emmet county, he captured another large seine which has been destroyed." . * #.» The Register has this note > in its dramatic column: Mr. Walker WhSteside, the young tragedian, has made another attempt to play Hamlet to the taste of the New York critics. Gotham is very stage proud and her critics stand snarling at every new comer, especially if he be from the provinces—like Chicago. Mr. Whiteside has to contend with this, as well as with a paucity of physical gifts and certain mannerisms contracted during barn storming seasons in the little centers of the west, but in spite of it he has made his Hamlet in a measure acceptable, even in New York. The Herald says that "Mr. Whiteside has of' course improved very much." It says his crudities are no longer obtrusive. But it sees in him no evidence that he is the coming tragedian. The New' York Tribune, in which William Winter worships certain fixed stars, puts up the bars against this young man from the west and says there is no use in commenting on his performance—he must do better before such a great dramatic authority can hold out any encouragement to him, The more plebian papers like the New York Press praise Mr, Whiteside highly, and who shall say that they are not as near right as the opinion proud papers? IN THIS JTEIftHBOBHOOD. Armstrong has 10 buildings now going up. G. G. Wheeler is to build at Burt yet this fall.

Jfotfest City Suffamit: A. W, 3terz- back, manager of the Algona orchestra, was in town yestefday interviewing the young taeti interested in dancing, and may bring his organisation here this winter to play for a series of parties. The Spefieer News fefers to 3, doleman's letter in Tnfe Ut»i*B« MdlttfiS and says; "His ability in describing the wild arid rugged mountain scenery and the emotions awakened in the presence of the same, is truly WoUderfult Swea City Herald! Hard coal in Algona is quoted at $8.25, and tit Etnrtietsburg the dealers are selling it P. $7.50, and at Estherville at $7.00, The price at this place compares favorably with the abdve. The dealers at this place are taking orders at $7,60. Humboldt Independent: That old settler called Jack Jones of anywhere from Algpna to Livermore, but the last few months a sojourner in Missouri, is just now settling himself on a farm here and says no Mlssourian can run fast enough to give him a farm there. The Mason City fair was. a fizzle. Here Is the Republican's statement: We are sorry to state that the management of the fair finds itself deficient in funds to pay the indebtedness. The receipts were about $978, and the expenses incurred $1,313,64, leaving a deficit of $835. Ren wick times: Last Monday the afternoon train to Alpona took Mrs. F. I. Stoddard and son Van, Mrs. G. F. Mack and little Fay, and Miss Cora Lang, who has been here a week or two visiting the above families. They all went up to visit relatives and take in the Kossuth county fair at Algona. Bro. Mayne tells this yarn and wants to know if Kossuth can beat it. We submit it to a candid constituency: J. B. Swan seems to be a very succes's- f ul potato grower and this year grew a mammoth one. It measured 28 inches in length, 14 inches in diameter, and weighed 86 pounds and 10 ounces. It was of a variety called the "Maggy Murphy" and was certainly a good sized murphy. We refer any who doubt the genuineness of the above to H. C. Shadbolt who will vouch for it. • Bailey advises the Courier to look here in the county for the premium crop liar, evidently having the postmaster in mind for the place: Look to home for crop liars! 160 bushels of oats to the acre is enough to rest on the souls of you Kossuth county editors. "If the Lord should come to Algona," oh, my, wouldn't the India rubber in your consciences make 'em pop on the rebound. You would tumble over yourselves taking off a bushel here and there; and you would drop on the acreage too. AUG. BROWN DIES SUDDENLY.

Aug. Brown, who has been on the Henry Patterson farm in Irvington for some years, and who lately bought the E. B. Eddy farm in Portland, died suddenly yesterday morning. Coroner Morse was summoned at once and with I. M. Finnell, M. P. Haggard, andGeo. C. Call as jury, he went to Irvington. His report is that the cause of death is unknown. Brown had been in Algona all day and bad complained of ill health to everybody he talked with. He was feeling blue. On his way home he stopped at Dr. Armstrong's and got some quinine and other remedies. He took these when he went to he'd and slept till 4 o'clock in the morning, when he got up and took some more quinine and at 5:30 o'clock he died in spasms. Mr. Brown had just paid $100 on the Eddy farm Monday, Frank Dingley letting him have the money. His sudden demise will doubtless end the bargain as he leaves nothing but personal property. He had lately been admitted to the United Workmen society and bad made one or two payments which will secure bis widow $2,000 insurance. He leaves a wife and eight children, the oldest about 16.

Last year, when the fair had 600 more than ever before, the single admissions wefe only 2,700 on the opehifig day, Thurs* day the single admissions were 1,444, making a total of 4,144 who paid their quarter to see the show. The Sale of exhibitors tickets, etc., brings the total to 4,425 and brings the society from this source over $1,100. Wednesday was childrens' day and as many children as adults were in free. Counting all the horsemen, holders 6f privileges, etc., 6,000 is a very modest estimate of the crowd and THE UPPER DES MOINES believes 8,000 to be nearer correct. The list of attractions was not elaborate, but everybody seemed pleased. The society had spent $1,200 for new ground, and had put much more into fences, clearing, etc. Besides that it had been rained on two years in succession and had chosen dates late enough for a freezing spell. It thought the people would be fully as well satisfied to have it keep sound financially, as they would to see a lot of fast horsemen carry away the money, and so arranged a modest but pleasing program. The" Algona prize winner band furnished fine music and Major Hendershott and his son plaved on their famous fife and drum. The running races were all good, the novelty was never so big, some fast trotting time was made, the bicycle men were speedy, the half mile footrace was exciting, and the fair closed with a contest between F. A. Corey's pony and Carl Hunt's-bicycle for five miles, which, was the best sporting event witnessed in Algona this summer. The exhibits in some lines were ahead of any previous attempts. A man who had visited seven county fairs in Iowa and Minnesota this year said to Capt. Dodge that he had'bot attended one with half the showing. The vegetable display was not beaten at the state fair and was ahead of the display when we sent our exhibit to Chicago. The farm machinery display was remarkably fine and the corn busker was one of the big features of the fair for the farmers. The usual fine horses were in, a lot of new cattle exhibitors competed, the poultry cages were overflowing. It was all around a fine display and a credit to the county. The association comes out well to the credit side financially, and next year will be in shape to put the money into attractions and premiums that will make the attendance ' memorable. With the new grounds it is an assured success and nothing but bad weather hereafter can defeat the great Kossuth county fairs. The Races. The opening race Wednesday afternoon was a half mile bicycle dash with Vickerman of Britt, Carl Hunt of Livermore, and Sanders of Clear Lake starters. Hunt won as he did also in the five mile race, with the same entries, in the slow time of 18 minutes. The mile county race was good with Gary Garfield, Guy Scott and Guy Taylor. The last had a borrowed wheel and went in to make up the race, but came in second to Garfield after a close run. The county running race had ten entries and was exciting. Seneca Boy ought to have won but shied the track twice and got second. He is owned by Wm. Helgason. Daniel Boone came first, and Prince L., the Salisbury horse, 'came third. There were three entries in the special trotting, Charlie H., C. A., Smith's horse; Lancetta, owned at Rolfe, and Lonemont, owned atCorwith. They made a good race, Charlie H. winning straight heats in 2.31, 2.29i, and 2.32. The half mile run had Gildersleeve and Irish Boy, with Dick Turpin, Old Abe, and Salem among local horses, Gildersleeve won easily in ,52, Irish Boy second and Dick Turpin third, The novelty race had 24 entries and was a novelty indeed. Bally V, owned by Vincent won, Sleepy Dan owned by Geo. Richards second, and the Burtis horse third. The winners were in before half the horses had finished their second half mile, and the track looked like a cavalry stampede most of the time. Thursday's races opened with a half mile foot race in which there were six starters. A, Hansen and Jas, Reeds came down the home stretch side by side and nether could get ahead, It was decided a tie at the score and they divided first and second moneys, A, Linsey took third, In the five-eights mile run a new half mile mare named Fancy appeared to compete with Gilder* sleeve and Irsb Boy, She could force them at the half but the extra eighth was too much and she came in third, Gildersleeve won in J.05J and J,05|, The free for all trot was contested by Gold Dust Prince of Clear Lake and Leslie Spy of Humboldt. The former won in 8.89,3,28, and ?,ge, The exciting race pf the whole fair was hetween Carl Hunt on his bicycle against Fred Corey's Pick Turpin for nve roues. The track was not in gpod shape for a bicycle but Hunt made the flve miles in4i54, wblch was oonsid* ered very fast time, But the horse woe in ^ead easily and not rawsb worrjed, Corey 4ppve the horse in a fulky asd feepVbiBJ »t ft feeod gallon JJ wap # gppH rape Oil & «** %*W «MV Dbfland p1ae§.

The flew ground was as Wg an attraction as anything, Everybod said "whata handsome ftiir groutid. There is no better In the state, A hew variety of high toned corn was displayed, Each kernel had a husk of its OWH, The chief complain seemed to be that the kernels were scarce. There were 38 Varieties of apple exhibited, eight varieties of crabs twelve of grapes, and One pear. Mrs J, E. Stacy had the pear and it lookec like a good one, Burt Monitor: Yesterday closed th county fair. Elegant Weather pre vatled and the attendance was large The fair in general was excellent Burt carries off a few honors. The Sigsby trained pony from Hum boldt was one of the best attractions Each day it gave an exhibition before the grandstand and proved itself to b a very intelligent and well behaved equine, The old settlers log cabin is to be raised on the fair ground next fall and will form a permanent addition to on of the little groves. If it is used as : museum for old-tlme'curiosities it. wtl be a great place of resort. Myron Schenck brought down a Cotton wood stripling ten feet and sto inches long, seven and one half inche around, and bushy with branches, al grown since the cyclone of Sept. 2 last year. How is that for one year? Major Hendershott had the silve drum along which Horace Greelej gave him when he left the army. Th major is the best known drummer bo; •who went into the war, and the ol" soldiers especially enjoyed his music. The Wigwam exhibit of machinery buggies, etc., was the largest ever pu on the grounds. The corn shredde held as big a crowd as' any singl feature and was a curiosity to thos who have begun to seriously con side harvesting corn fodder. John Haines made the flat statemen that one bushel of his yellow dent 9' day corn would fat more hogs than i bushel and a half of the white or red dent. Senator Chubb and others ex pressed doubts, but he said he woulc stand by his challenge. A. L. Bel tor who had the first prize in the other also disputed it. Last year there was some disput about potatoes mixingin a hill. M. B Dalton has settled it, for this sprin; he planted some early rose and pinl eyes together. He showed both parent and the progeny at the ' fair. Th mixture resulted in a lot of little rock; half breeds with pink eyes and ai early rose complexion. The Wesley Reporter concludes a good report of the fair by saying: Th exhibits were quite numerous, and in many instances far above our expecta tions, especially is this tr.ue of the large collection of fruit. The apple on exhibition proved beyond a doub that Kossuth county should produci more than enough for home .consump tion. One protest against the decision o the stock judge was filed. Marty o LuVerne asked for a new ruling on th short horn cattle and two awards were changed. The judge gave Frank Jenkinson's bull and two year olc heifer first prize, and the local judge gave both to Marty. Marty's cattle were a beef strain and Jenkinson's milk strain. M. R. Sadler of Mitehellville wa stock judge this year. He makes : business of judging for fairs and cam recommended by five associations Some disagreed with him on horse and cattle both, and his decision differed from some of his predecessors That is the beauty of a new judge each year. A man never knows when hi stock will be the blue ribbon wearers The Ruthven Free Press said in it last issue "that -a fair withou •ambling is a nice thing, but it is not i Jnanclal success." The Kossuth count;, fair has been a financial success just il proportion as it has excluded gambling It was offered $800 this year by one fakir for admission. No fair can long succeed which tolerates swindlinj gambling on its grounds. The Bancroft Register gives th fair a full report, It says; The Kos suth cpunty fair was the most success f ul this fall of any of the years of its existence in point of attendance, and the exhibits were equal to those founc at any county fair In the state. The races were vyejl filled and though no very fast time was made they were al good, The novelty race of Wednesday had about thirty-five starters and was one of the most amusing features of the fair. . . , . .
