Warren are among the new bicycle converts. Isaac Grove has n stalk of corn that measured six feet and nine inches June 20. How is that, Hancock countyV Mrs. S. S, Sessions slipped and sprained her ankle Thursday and is now using crutches. The injury is severe. E. H. Clarke, B. F. Crose, Geo. Bailey, and Melzar Haggard made a party for Chain Lakes Monday. They will take a week's outing, This has been a growing season. The weeds have profited by it. How would it be for everybody to get after the weeds on and about his lots. As nice a job of grading as has been done this spring is on Peter Purvis' grounds, and as nicely kept a yard as there is in Algona is Ed. Yemans'. Aaron Rutherford is in failing health. He is confined to his bed much of the time. His old friends will hope to see him begin to mend soon. Dr. Armstrong wrote to R. M. Wright last week that the shingles had broken out on his side again and that he should stay at Independence some time yet. Now is the time to trim trees and Algona has hundreds of them that need trimming. The first thing is to get a tree. The second thing is to get rid of about half of it. It don't make any difference now to Pete Christensen whether free silver or gold wins at Chicago. It is a big boy, the first in the household, and he came Saturday morning. Politics ain't in it. Miss Louise McCoy will not accept the position in the public schools to which she was chosen, but will teach in the normal school next year. Prof. Lilly is fortunate in securing her services. The Baptist Sunday school will give an ice cream social at Jos. Bright's tomorrow evening. Teams will be provided to take those desiring to go. They will be at the Baptist church at 7:30 o'clock. The John Grove Land company sent three from Algona, four from Hobart, and two from Wesley to Hinkley, Minn., to buy cheap lands, yesterday. All of these men are renters here, which explains why they are looking for lands cheaper than they can buy in Kossuth. The Episcopalian ladies netted $68 at their birthday social last Wednesday ' evening. The beautiful grounds about the Clarke home were brilliantly lighted and the band furnished delightful music while elegant refresh- ments'were served. It was an enjoyable event. . Monday an old gentleman and his boy came to Algona on their bicycles, being on their way from Janesville, Wis. They had made 90 miles and decided to complete their 100 for the day and accordingly pushed on for Whittemore. The old gentleman looked 60 years of age. The ladies reading room society met Friday and elected officers for the ensuing year. Mrs. Thos. F. Cooke was chosen -president; Mrs. Hamilton, treasurer; Mrs. Platt, secretary. This was the last regular meeting for the summer and the society will .not meet again until fall, A crowd of young men at Bancroft last Friday night made night hideous about the Byrnes hotel and as a result J. J. Kelley, our Jim, and Amos Kinney were arrested, Monday 'Squire Raymond prosecuted in 'Squire Austin's court and they were fined $10 and costs each. They were convicted of unlawful assemblage, Effort will be made to get up a lecture course, to begin sometime in October, Will consist of at least six lectures by the best talent that can be secured for the money, A canvass pf the town will be made inside of a week to see what can be done, and the success of the enterprise will depend on the liberality of the people, The Pomeroy family will be at the Baptist church next Tuesday evening. They are on their fifth annual tour and are meeting with enthusiastic receptions, The charge here will be 25 and 15 cents. The family give songs, recitations, etc., and are quite remarkable in their line, the children carrying four parts -and singing without accompaniment.

He wanted a warrant for the trio arid 'Squire Taylor sent oul for them. It seems Ed.*s brother had bad trouble with the Vigdals and they decided to take it out of Ed. The law will now take it out of them, A firm of long standing will he dissolved July 1, that of A, D. Clarice & Co. At that date Thos. F. Cooke, who has been with Mr. Clarke eleven years, will withdraw. His plans are not fixed except that he will spend a few weeks at his Okoboji cottage and then decide on what he will do. He has big interests in Kossuth county lands, be sides stock in several banlcs, and his presidency of the Deposit & Loan, and will probably open an office in Algona. Mr. Clarke will continue at the present stand. Divine services at the Episcopal church at 11 a. m. and 8 p. -m. At the morning service Rev. Miller will speak on the "Authenticity, Contents, and Difficulties of the Book of Daniel."

At the young- people's meeting at 7 p. m. the topic will be: "Right and Wrong Ideas of the Benefits of Church Membership." The republican county convention to name delegates to the state, congressional and judicial conventions will be held Friday. In state matters a strong effort is being made to get a delegation favorable to Judge Weaver for the supreme bench. In congressional matters a solid Dolliver delegation is agreed to by everybody. In judicial matters both Judge Thomas and Representative Cornwall will have support. There will be no contest made by the friends of any of the candidates and whatever result is reached will be satisfactory to all.
