That is not a cheering start for that farm, where over 150 hogs died from cholera last year. The Algona Cemetery association held a meeting lost Saturday at W. H. Nycum's office, at which a proposition was submitted for a change in the con' stitution which will permit the establishment of a sinking fund. Thirty days later another meeting will be had, at which the matter will again come up and receive final consideration; The band picnic last Saturday north of Burt was a big success all around. Many from Algona went and all had a good time. The rain storm which struck them toward evening made a scattering for dry places, but it is not reported that any found them. One fellow said the big sleeves melted in the rain like ice cream in a hot sun. Judge Thomas returned to his home Friday for what is supposed to be his vacation, but in a talk with the reporter he said his vacation would be no play-spell, as he had several cases to bear and take under consideration which would probably take all the time until his next term of court,begins. Mr. Thomas is a conscientious and hard-working official. The Patterson store burglary at Blairsburg turns out to be not so serious an affair, after all. Geo. Patterson was down there last -week, and he says the total loss is about £150, chiefly of clothing. Ambitious newspaper correspondents made the loss about SS.OOO at first. No clue has been obtained to the burglars, and no further efforts are being 1 made to apprehend them. No doubt it was the work of tramps. The annual meetine of the Kossuth County Farmers' Mutual Insurance company was held yesterday at the secretary's office in Algona. A fairly good attendance of members was had and some changes in the constitution were made. The old officers were reelected, as follows: C. B. Hutchins, president: C. C. Chubb, treasurer; E. Blackford, secretary. A fuller report of what was doue at -the meeting will be given next week. People who think the spring's rainfall in this part of the state has been copious are not dreaming. All sorts of eruesses are made, but it requires the official record to get at the facts. C. D. Pettibone, local observer, tells us that the rainfall for the months of April and May was a trifle over 12 inches, about six inches each month. That is a large precipitation for the time, but it was all needed. Last Thursday night's rain brought us one inch and 35-100, and the rain Saturday night measured one inch and 3-100. Both of these showers were of short duration, so that they were really very hard downpours, time considered. Architect T. H. Conner has completed plans for the new'home'to be erected by the Chubb brothers; and they show that it will be an ornamental as well as substantial affair. Bids for the work are .being received. He has also the plans nearly completed for Geo, W. Hanna's now residence at LuVerne. Geo. W, was in Algona Friday and we tackled him about the new house. His native modesty, we suppose, prompted him to insist there was nothing in it, We can'see how that might be, from a purely technical point of view; but Mr. Conner's plans are proof that somebody will be in a model residence at DO distant day. ,Cards are out announcing the coming marriage of Irving E. Dodge and Miss De Etta Bandal), to occur June 16, No more worthy couple have ever joined heartsland hands ID Algona, and THE UPPER DBS MoiNss,wantB to tender,its sincerest congratulations in advance of the happy event. The bride4o*be Is & daughter of M. F. Randall, pur efficient recorder of deeds, is beloved, of all the peopje, and will prove" ah invaluable helpmeet. Irving Dodge la ! the' con« flflential man for Col, Spencer Jn the treasurer's office,, was also there with Mr. Liantry, and is one of Algona's moet exemplary ypung men. That their craft may ride tbe matrimonial sea serenely is the wish pi their many friends. Tbe infantile proportions of Baby Bljss, who rides the American wheel, for which Wilfrid J». Jones Is agent, will be seen here next Saturday". It will he a better show than the Kirk- hart'Ryan circus, He was in Emmetsburg last Friday, and the Reporter wye; Baby Bliss arrived, Friday even' ing, a few hours behind scheduled time, but this W9 doubt was the result ef b*s beipgr Qverlook^ at some wayside station, where he changed cars, PB " pf bte' fiim,inu|ive gfee..

He thinks the accounts ttftfafe storm are in many instances offer* drawfy and that the greatest da mage, asidu from the loss of life, was dowd to the cheaper Class of buildings. So fat- as Texas is concerned hti doesn't seem to be parliL-ularly "stuck" on the state, agreeing, rio .doubt, with the fellow WHO said if he owned both Texas and hell, he would rent the former and live in the latter. Three tramps before Justice Clarke last Friday were sentenced to ten days at hard labor on the street. Two of them declared they would not work, but a bread and water diet, with ball and chain attachment served to change their attitude; and Monday morning Marshal Horan acted as superintendent while they' shoveled dirt after a manner which indicated that they had been there before. The one to hold out the longest said that if Tanner could live forty days on water nlone he was sure he could stand it much longer with bread added. He also wrote quite an intelligent letter to Judge Quarton in which he made a learned reference to his constitutional rights and a trial by a jury of his peers. A man with as much general information as this man displayed has no occasion to be u on the road," but if he will tramp he must take what is in store for those of his kind, especially ?o long us he terries in Algona, N. J. Skinner, who was here Monday, is not as rotund as when he left here in JCovember, 1S94. Evidently the warm climate of the south is no't conducive to corpulencv. He- \vas in Des Moines a year "after leaving Algona, and then went to Galveston, Texas, which he believes is the coming city of that section. He told the reporter that he was engaged in a ticket brokerage business, and also had the street ear advertising franchise, which he is working up and .hopes to make a good thing out of. He says that city has about 60,000 people and is taking a fresh start They have 45 miles of street car Hoes, four bridges across the sound, and artesian water from the mainland. Galveston is. situated on an island 35 miles long by one mile wide, and the soil—if it may be called soil—is all sand. They now have 24 feet of water at tbe docks where they had but nine feet three years agtj.~ He naturally thinks the river.and harbor bill a good thing. AMOffG THE ADVERTISERS.

The Farmers' Exchange offers something novel in the way of life-size photos. Wheat is bringing 45c in the market; corn, I5c; oats. 12c; flax, 60c, and hogs are down to $2.60. The season of picnics is suggestive of good lunches. Grove & Son tell you how to be sure of a good one. Durdall has out a fine display of bicycle hose. The "bike" rider needs those almost as much as he does a wheel. The peanut market will continue to rise between now and July 4. That's why Art. Allen has just 'laid in 300 pounds. Baby Blips will be here next Saturday. Wilfrid P. Jones aells the America wheel, ridden by the 502- pound "baby," If you haven't yet canned any fruit you should see what Langdon & Hudson can do toward helping you out for a winter's supply. The Schu & Waterhouse cigar factory feels justly proud of its new awning and new chairs. They go well along with the new building. When you cap get an Oxford shoe, either black or'tan, for $1, how much more does anyone want? Some people would kick if they had to go barefoot. Hot weather and shirt waists go together in the nature pf things, The ladies know how this is. Galbraith has shirt waists in all sizes and at all prices. ' Who would dig around in a dark garret for the extra leaves for a table when McGregor sells the newest thing in extension tables for so little money? If you have seen it you know all about it; if not you ought to. The wisdom of most people is ex* hiblted in what they do and how they do IV If your wife has had, bad luck with her bread the difficulty might "be overcome by trying some of James Patterson's Ma4elia flour, Those capes at Gqeders' have got to go, and that explains why he offers them at such astonishing prices.
