Cowan was awarded the job, but now it seems the heating men trabt a deeper excavation than he was bidding on. The architect has been notified. That barley atS. C. TrumbuU's is not as high as it was last week when THE UPPER DBS MOINES bragged about iL The bail took it clean to the ground. We still have a sample, however, to show what a crop there was promise of. Yesterday completed another financial quarter with this paper, and business patrons will be waited upon during tbe week by the collector, who will receive silver dollars at 16 to 1 or any other ratio in payment of advertising accounts. Geo. R. Cloud was arrested Saturday for being drunk on tbe streets and was fined $10 and costs by 'Squire Clarke. Mr. Cloud's many friends regret that he cannot master the one Weakness that stands between him and a Successful professional career. A. A. Brunson drove lo Seneca Saturday night after the storm lo learn if any damage bad been done there and to see that bis sun and family were safe. They told him that they never saw so brilliant an electrical display as while tbe storm was passing. The W. C. T. U. is planning for a chrysanthemum show as an annual feature of the society, tbe first one to be given next November, consequently tbe culture of chrysanthemums will be tbe subject for the next regular meeting, which will be July 8. C. B. Hutch ins feels pretty good over bis investment in bail insurance. A little over a week ago he took out a $1,200 policy and paid $3.50 for it. Within the next week the hail took 30 acres of wheat, cutting it down so it is jiot worth harvesting-. He is the only "one in tbe Irvington hail belt with any insurance. Rev. J. B. Clapp lias organized a Sunday school at the Burt school house in Union township with 60 members. Mrs. I. Gardner is superintendent, Mrs. E. W. Donovan assistant superintendent, Wm. Martin treasurer, Miss Mamie Reed secretary, Miss Libbie Gilmour organist. Rev. Gardner preaches every Sunday at 3 o'clock. A wonderful improvement has been made at St. Joe by the Catholic society there, The big brick church would ornament any city in the state, while the school house, home, cemetery, and surroundings are all in keeping. THU UPPER DES MOINES reporter had not visited that country in many years until Monday. He was surprised to see such a change. The opening at the Daug-berty-Bron- son drug store at Livermore Monday was a big SIICCBSS. The Algona band boys went down early in the morning and played 1 for them during the day and many others from Algena drove down. >Tce boys have a handsome store room and already have a good trade. They will be more popular the better they are known. When Dr. Oleson, the eye doctor, was here, he gave a piece of good advice. He told a signer for a county atlas, "If an angel from heaven comes to your farm to get you to sign a paper or to pay money unless you know what it is for, don't do it." He said that 40 years of experience had taught him that a man must keep bis hand away from pens and his pockets when talking to strangers. Little Harry Little, a nine-year-old, took Wm. K. Ferguson's carriage out of his barn Monday morning and he and-his uncle, "-Tony" Little drove it all day, bringing it back at night. It was freshly varnished and came back pretty muddy, Mr. Ferguson thought it was stolen, and when it came back sent the marshal after the boy, .who was brought before Judge Quarton yesterday morning. Thursday three doctors, Morse, Ken- neflck, and Stull, operated upon "Tug" Wilson for appendicitis, .taking out over a pint of pus. The patient is recovering, which is lucky as a great many die from tbe operation, generally because it is not performed in time, Another day would have put his case beyond remedy. This is the third case of the kind in Algona in ten days. It was appendicitis that killed B. J. Hunt. Ellis MoWhorter of Portland had an close call oh liie road to Sufi which the bridge was taken from. Fred, toys the bridge timbers flew in the air like feathery and the noise sou tided like the wind whistling, ito a jog, increased about a thousand times. Kossuth County State Bank, . Kain had the misfortune one day last week to break his leg again, He *as riding with his father neaf the Call bridge when tbe team began act- tug badly, and tearing they Would run a way he jumped out. The teatn was held, hot in striking the ground he gave the old break a wrench and opened it. Dr. KeheBck thinks this is no worse than tbe first break and that he will be up again as soon as he was before. He was getting on so nicely that it seems hard to be housed again. Friday a traveling man, F. A. Mc- Mulled, was drowned in Clear Lake within a rod of where J. W. Tennant was unset two weeks ago. Mr. Tennant says his own escape was very narrow and was no laughing matter* to him. fie was in eight feet of water with white caps roiling pretty high over him when be fell out, and had on a mackintosh coat and a pair of bib overalls. He was able to swim a short distance and luckily got into shallow water. Two men were drowned in Clear Lake last week, J. W. Sullivan was in Emmetsburg Saturday to begin a big suit against the Milwaukee railroad. June 18 a gentleman named Frost and bis son were crossing the railway track, A train hit them and the father by jumping saved his life. The boy was killed. It is charged that the engineer failed to warn them by ringing tha bell as the law requires and Sullivan & McMabon have been retained to bring suit for $15,000. Four Milwaukee adjusters have been out to look up evidence and the case will doubtless be bitterly contested. No papers have yet been filed. A pretty good story has just come out about that county atlas deal. An old German farmer had signed his name on a list, as he supposed, to request the county board to improve the roads. He had got his map and had bad to pay bis $12.50 for it. With great solemnity he gathprcd his Jarge family about him and with the family Bible on the table solemnly swore each one in turn to absolutely not speak to a stranger who should come on the place, except to order him off. Every member took the oath and they say up in his township they make short work with agents in his neighborhood. The suit on a machine territory note signed by Peterson of Swea and given to J. L. Sutton was tried in Algona again last Thursday, and this time was decided against Peterson by the jury. An appeal is already "taken to the district court, and the whole matter will be gone over again. Sutton's statement is that Peterson bought the right to sell machinery to his neighbors and signed the note. Peterson's - story is that he refused to buy the right and signed his name to some paper merely to give Button his address. W. L. Joslyn and S. E. McMahon were Peterson's attorneys and Ernest Raymond represented' B, W. Haggard, tbe owner of the note, Friday Wm. Goodrich sat in THE UPPER DES MOINES office and told of a prairie hen on his Hebron farm with a brood of 22 chicks. Supt. Reed listened tQ-him and was reminded that when his father moved to Kossuth they camped at Owl lake and set a prairie fire that got away from them. Next morning he counted 10,000 prairie hen's nests in the burnt district all full of eggs. He says a man could have gathered a fair crop of eggs of several bushels to the acre. We asked Mr. Goodrich if he wanted to add to his story, but he said not. He was willing to- compete for the laurels with a brood of 22 chickens hatched by one hen. WE are after your crockery trade.

He was caught out horseback by it and barely bad tiqae to roll off into a ditch by the road when it went over him. It simply filled him with mud, It plastered it on him and twistecl and wound it into ev ery available crease of his clothing. Even his watch was well packed in it, He came out all right but that is enough whirlwind for him.
