Harry 'Wilson's Challenge. Harry Wilson of Emmetsburg has had returned to him the $50 forfeit, posted by him with Chicago parties as evidence of good faith In bis challenge to the sports of that city in a contest with the shot gun. It looks as if he would be unable to find any takers to his proposition. This is certainly a very poor showingfor the north western metropolis to make that generally boasts of having the best of everything. The Tribune-says: Believing that Wilson and .Gilbert would make an invincible team, Emmetsburgers would be delighted if a match could be arranged. A Pointer for Anglers. Fish sold on the Sioux City market for 50 cents a pound Friday, but they were not ordinary members of the finny tribe. A local market received from New Orleans a consignment of pompano. This species of,fish is seldom seen on a northern market, owing to the fact that the supply is not sufficient .to satisfy the demand in the south, where it commands a big price. The pompano is one of the most beautiful of the fish caught in salt water, and it is said to be the first time any of them have ever been offered for sale in this city. But 15 pounds were received and sold quickly, realizing $7.50. To Grade Up Superintendents. Senator Carroll, brother of Prof. Carroll of the Algona schools, has introduced a bill to.require all candidates for county superintendent to possess about the same qualifications as are required to secure a state certificate. The only difference is that the examination will be only in the elementary sciences, such as botany, zoology and physics; bookkeeping and drawing will be dropped out, The certificates will be good for. five years to teach or hold office in the state. The senator's object of course is to raise the standard of county superintendents. Kossutli Candidate for Delegate, Emmetsburg .Reporter: We understand that Geo. C. Call of Algona will be a candidate for delegate to the republican national convention at St. Louis from this congressional district. So far as we know Palo Alto has no candidate for that honor, apd we see no reason why Mmf Call should not receive the support of this county. He is a young man of energy and push, and we would like to so'e him secure the honor he seeks, "Intercepting" tlie legislature, Armstrong Journal: One of the JCos- auth county papers stated last week that the supervisors of that county were "intercepting" with tbe legislature, We are very sorry to learn this fasti H it is & f&Qt, as that body has an extpft amount of work to do this segslop, But theft the people of Koesuth are different from others, tbeboard of supervisors Botesoeptefl, A FJW CflUnpjjnjr EtnjnetjSburg Re,p.Qptsr; fire o»Q.$p n y } 9 taik.ieg p.f to get up a teuraajaeot aproe tim.e ing the ftpmlog,.

Better Chance for NofiiitU Schoola, The bally Capital reporter commehts otl the modest demands of the Cedar Falls normal school and says! The effect of this action on the part of the state normal people will be to strengthen the bill for establishing new normal schools. It will leave just that much more money to go in the direction of starting new schools. A County of Churches.

Bookman of West Bend will put anew paper in at Ruth ven. The Advance says: Hugh Smith will have charge of the mechanical department, and the Ruth ven people will have no cause to be ashamed of the new paper. Kossuth Prize Corn. R. M.
