THE LOCAL FIELD. The marshal has killed 16 dogs. The reading room ladies meet Fri day. Ed. Byrns of Wesley was indicte last week for selling cider. The city council are wise in bringing water renters down to rules. Someone took the collar, tax tag and all from Dr. Morse's big mastiff. Dr. Armstrong- is reported to be slow ly improving a t the asylum. His cas is hopeful. The frame of Gardner Cowles' new house is up and gives promise of th size it will attain. The Si Perkins show Saturday nigh was one of those shows about which the less said the better. Mrs. Lule Bradley had some tuber cular glands in the neck cut out yester day. She will recover. Everybody who visited the cemetery Saturday had occasion to praise Sexton Pohlin for its handsome appearance. Misses Jewel Patterson and Mabe'i Gllmore are delegates to the Epworth league convention at Dows next week Dr. Dunlap, the new member of the pension examining board, has sold ou at Ledyard and will go to a larger town soon. Tho John Grove Land company is an addition to Algona's business firms. It has rooms four and flve in the Boston block. Quarterly meeting will be held at the Methodist church next Sunday morning. Rov. W. A. Black will preach, The county board opened their June meeting Monday. Providing for new grades and bridges has been the main business. Dr. McCormack has been chosen county physician again for the south half of the county at a salary of $250 for the year. About 50 Odd Fellows went to Britt this morning to attend the big district anniversary celebration, They have a flne day for the meeting, The coming teachers' institute opens Monday, Aug. 3, and will be a three weeks session. It will be one of the best ever held iu the county, If the city can't put in electric lights yet, a local company of 40 or 50 to take $200 each of stock would, insure the town good and cheap service, There is rejoicing at the Herb, Bailey home in Union, A little girl came Wednesday to enliven it, She has one .brother, but he is 17 years old George Patterson has gone to Blairsburg to find out about tbe burglarizing of Albert Patterson's store. Nothing has yet been heard, from hits about the affair, The summer school at the normal building opens June 80 and lasts until the institute opens. Those 1 fitting themselves to teach ca R go through both without any break, * * Binding's circus is at Spencer Qn Julys, ana at MftwnOJty July 4.

He has been putting in the spring on his farm fixing renpes and repairing generally. He remained lohgr enough to take in memorial day with his old comrades, The school board met Monday evening to talk with agents of various sys- ,ems of heating the new school house. They transacted no other business. \oxt Monday they will decide what heating system they will adopt. School closes next Week Friday. All •corns except the high school will mve special exercises in the forenoon. The schools will close at noon on the ast day in order to prepare for the commencement exercises at night. Mayor Haggard took up a subscrlp- iion on tho street Thursday to secure open air concerts by the band. Algona could not do a better thing than to jrovide as a city for a permanent band xnd for regular evening free concerts. The old favorite Tennessee Jubilee ingers entertained a big audience Monday evening. They improve with each appearance and can have a crowd any time they come. The young people's societies who brought them cleared about $35. Hon. J. H. Funk is to be Bancroft's Fourth of July orator. He is one of the ablest and best speakers in Iowa. In the two last sessions of the legislature he has been a leading member, and his name is enough to insure a crowd on the Fourth. Lars Johnson, at the Milwaukee depot, got between his team and the whitQetrees and in some way the wagon was pulled on him breaking both bones of one leg above the ankel. Dr. Tribon has fixed him up, but he will be disabled a long time. At the Congregational churoh Sunday 53 new members were admitted to the church. The Methodists took in 33, and the Presbyterians 26. The Baptists do not take in any new members until noxt Sunday. This is largely the result of the revival meetings, Tho A. O. U. W. picnic and athletic exhibition will be the feature of this month. It comes at the fair ground June 17, two weeks from today. Rev. J. W. Geigor, who spoke to the Masons a year ago, will be the orator of the occasion. He is an eloquent talker. Whether the Ringling circus is to stop at Algona or not is a question. Agent Hedrick has been ordered to save side track for their trains on July 3, but no arrangement has been made for grounds as yet. The circus is to be at Spencer and Mason City. It will hardly skip Algona, and if it comes will be here July 3. Several counties are going to join in testing their right to collect the one mill county road tax in incorporated towns and cities. Attorney General Remley has given an opinion that it cannot be collected. TheKossuth board have instructed Auditor Calkins to join with others in the matter and have a decision by the courts. S. S. Sessions has received a copy of the Jamestown, N. Y. Journal, containing an obituary notice of his uncle, Walter L. Sessions. Mr. Sessions was in congress several terms and was a prominent man in western New York politics. He dropped dead at 76 years of age of heart disease while leaving a street car to go to his home. Monday's daily papers report the burglarizing of Albert Patterson's store at Blairsburg: "Wagons were backed up to the front door of Patterson & Co, "a general merchandise store and the place was virtually gutted by men, as yet unknown. Blairsburg is a town of ibout 300 and Patterson & Co. generallv carry a stock valued at $3,000," * Memorial day brought Jas. Orr a beautiful bouquet of flowers with a card attached by the W, C. T, U. It bore a verse from the Bible about "him that overcouieth." Mr. On- was .ouohed by this thoughtful remem- >ranoe, and is very thankful to the adles for It. It made memorial day a doubly enjoyable anniversary for him. One of the Naudain teams was moved >y the music Monday evening and leaded at full speed for the circus >and, which was playing between Goeders'and Galbraitb's corners, They nmde a scurrying In the crowd and ran up State street to the Hamilton lumber rard, where Forest Rice, who had borne o town on his pony, took after them stopped them.

Mr. Granger has been running a hotel at Hull and his son a railway eating house at Salem, and they know exactly about what is demanded by tho travelling public. Ernest Raymond began his career as a lawyer with a hotly con tested case for B. W. Haggard before 'Squire Taylor Friday over a note given to J. L. Sutton by one Peterson of Eagle Lake. Peterson's story was that Sutton wanted him to become agent for machinery for Eagle Lake township. Ho didn't wont to become ngent. Sutton said he would be out og_ain and in order to be sure and find his man asked Peterson to sign his name in a book, Peterson signed, and the note was the result. Sutton denied the whole story and said Peterson bought the territory to sell machinery and signed the note knowing exactly what it was for. Sullivan & McMahon and W. L. Josylyn were for Peterson and the jury of six disagreed after being out till 5 o'clock in the morning.
