F. HEDRIOK, Agent. South— CHICAGO & NORTHWESTERK. Diphtheria has developed on Mie John Hehf-y fairm northeast of Algona. Three little boys are dovvti, two Dally boys and one Johnson, aged eight, four, and three years. Dr. Ketieflek is at* tending' them and a strict quarantine is maintained. The • Algotia. priiititig offices have been engaged in getting out the briefs and arguments in the case between Dr. Lacy and the county for the supreme court. It is quite a Voluminous affair. It will furnish, the judges good reading matter this fall, * While up at the hikes a week ago G. F.'Peek made a short estimate of the depth of the water he was diving into, and when he got out he found that his hand has been quite badly out on a piece of shell. He will dive in deeper water hereafter. Some years ngo Mr. Stephenson suffered from a sun stroke and since then in hot weather his head has troubled him. Last week at his own request he was sent to Independence for treatment at the asylum. His partner, Jim Stacy, has charge of the store. Old Mrs. Finnegan has been troubled for some time with mental vagaries, and has been taken to her son's home. She thinks Mr. Finnegan is still alive, and that she often converses with him. It is hoped that she will recover without the necessity of going to an asylum. A runaway team last week was attracted by something in Samuel Reed's yard in the south of town and turned in so as to strike a post of the porch fairly. This is the third runaway that has turned in along that block, and as there are usually a lot of children out. it is a wonder they have escaped.

Clarke will fish for trout in the Maine lakes for about a month. Then he and Mrs. Clarke will return to Algona. Dr. Garfield has been appointed to the vacancy in the pension examining board. No fitter appointment could have been made. John Lindblom of Eagle Lake township was in Algona not long ago. He says that Russian thistles are very thick in his section. The authorities of the town have posted notices. The Swea City Herald says every farm along the state line is full of them. They blow over from Minnesota. Corn and grain fields are badly filled. The clouds and rain of Sunday here were evidences of big storms both east and west. Big washouts occurred at Sioux City and near Dubuque. The Milwaukee track was hit again, and the morning train Monday was five hours late. This was particularly unlucky for the circus excursionists over east, who had to come on freight trains. Auctioneer Haggard was not quite himself Saturday. B. W. was out with a BulPs Eye camera to get some snap shot pictures of some of his characteristic attitudes, and for a long time he stood perfectly straight and kept his hands down. But after a while he forgot and soon warmed up to his best style. A half dozen good pictures were secured. Company F will start for Manhattan beach, Okoboji, Saturday morning with colors flying. Dr. Morse attends as surgeon, Col. Cooke is already at the lakes, and Mr. and Mrs. Tellier will go to see that the boys are well fed.

The republican county convention comes Sept. 11, in about six weeks. The officers to be nominated are a clerk, auditor, recorder, county attorney, and two supervisors.

Pooch of Creeco is before 'Squire Taylor this morning- to answer to the charge of assailing some of his neighbors with a knife, monkey wrench, stones, fists, and otherwise. It seems to have been a neighborhood quarrel in which women took part. Pooch, for all his equipment, got the largest distribution of black eyes and bruises. Will Smith is the complaining witness. Over at Wesley last week the section men on the Milwaukee struck for a raise in wages, from $1.25 to $1.50. They did not get the extra quarter and so began to loaf, ending up in the cala- boose for being drunk and quarrelsome. Pour got $10 and costs and two got $5 and costs. They are considerably worse off than they would have been if they had stuck to work at $1.25 a day, County Attorney Raymond announces himself as a candidate for renomination this week, He has been a faithful public official, devoting his time to his office, and prosecuting criminals with strict impartiality and without any hesitation. He has lots of friends in the county and we predict that he will be very strong in the convention. No mistake will be made if his name is again on the ticket. While driving down from the picnic at H. J. Gilbert's last Wednesday Mrs. J, R. Jones and Mrs. Lenette Butler had their carriage upset by an unruly horse, Mrs, Butler extricated herself at once and in lifting the carriage top to let Mrs, Jones out, suffered a strain, When she arrived at home her hurt was not considered serious, but during the week she has been suffering from nervous prostration, At present she }s much improved. The land trade for the Brunswick hotel fell through last week and a law suit for 1500 commission has been begun by the Grove land company. The The Minnesota man made out a written contract and signed it covering the details of his proposition, kater be slipped into the office-and gathered the contract up and refused to wake a new one. This looked as though be had never meant to trade and the matter will be heard in court. Of all the foolish stories about the c. it. j^und affairs, the most foolish is that of bie having gone to Denmark. 'P*? qofflB wae burled.

The happy couple have many congratulations oh their start out in matrimony. As though the hail storm wer« hot enough to "insure Perry Burllngiime a vacation he was not anxious for, a worm, that many think is the army worm, is eating what is left of bis crdp. He is ploughing under a field of oats, but does not notice that it relieves the situation much. He brought in a sample of the worms last week, We do not-know what kind they are, but their looks Condemn them ki nny event. The army worm is doing great dnmitge north and east of us. > LuVerne goes today to Lake Tetonkti for a cheup excursion, the round trip costing but $2. The Andrews Opera company owns the hotel there and is giving Pitmfore every evening on a barge on the lake. They are getting up the excursion. The day will be filled with pleasure. On the fine track at the park there will be a bicycle tournament, trotting, pacing and running races. At the lake there- will be a sensational plunge by a hfjrh diver from a 50-foot pedestal, a race between two yachts for the championship and a novel water cycle race. The buy will bo illuminated by calcium lights of 10,000 candle power and a display of Pain's world-famous fireworks. It is reported that Geo. R. Cloud -is under arrest. This is a sad ending to what promised to be a successful career in Algona. While demoralized by whisky Mr. Cloud 1ms spent several hundred dollars collected for eastern firms, and they have come on for their money. His fatber-in-lavv, Dr. White, is expected in Algona today to do what he can to make a settlement. Mr. Cloud is a young man of ability and integrity when' in his right mind. When he came to Algona he had made an heroic effort to reform and for several months succeeded. It was while on a flshing trip with an old friend from Nevada that the appetite seized him again. His own story for it is that he was taken sick, and in the medicine which the doctor gave him was brandy. A small dose sufficed, and his downfall was steady and deplorable. BASE BALL NOTES. ' Frank Parish is business manager for the Algona nine. The Algona club went to Britt yesterday to play the Britt team. Will Salisbury fanned out 13 men in Saturday's game. He is a good man in the box. There has been talk of getting the Mayturnsand Swartz back this season again to play with Algona. Lawyer Curtis, who has bought Geo. R. Cloud's business, is an expert ball player. He was catcher for the state university team the past year. The Eagle Grove team came up Saturday and played Algona. It was a game of errors but Algona won by 16 to 13. A return game will be played at Eagle Grove Friday. The first ball game in Algona for the season was played Friday. The Buffalo Center nine came down and beat our team in a close game by a score of seven to six. Wilkinson and Clausen came from Des Moines as battery and did good work. But the Buffalo Center nine were in better practice and won put in the last inning. The score by innings was as follows: AlKpna 3 1002010 0-6 Buffalo Center ..,.0 2003000 2—7 AMONG THE ADVERTISERS. ' Galbraiths are selling all their remnants at cut prices. The china decorators will find some fine pieces of Haviland at Groves.' The Brunswick hotel and C. J, Brown have a new line of 'busses which run to that house exclusively. Brownell has some new signs on his front.

That would be pretty rich cheese, Doxsee has gotten up a bicycle dis* play for his show window equal t obis Santa Claus, The bicycle wheels are a couple of grind stones.
