What promised to be the ball game of the season was ruined Saturday afternoon by a short shower. Clarion and Algona stood two tallies each at the end of the lifth inning, after pretty play all around. The rain came just as the Algonas went to the field, the ball was too wet to be well handled, Clarion made 9 scores, and then just as the third man was out the sun appeared, everything dried up and the game came back to business again. The score ended 12 to 3. Salisbury threw out the Clarion batters splendidly while the ball was dry, and all the hoys played good ball. The Algona boys evened up that Britt game Wednesday by mopping the ground with Swea City's crack club. The score was 22 to 6 which tells all that needs to be told; Salisbury threw twisters to the visitors that tangled them up worse than the hills and valleys of the out-field did, while the home hoys pounded Hart's balls all over the diamond. The Swea City team hasn't had such a drubbing this year. The Hioomers are Uuclt Again. The Boston Bloomers tire again in 'these parts. They played in Sioux City last week. At Elk Point, S. D., they had an exciting time. The members of the team had been warned previously that if they attempted to play there 'they would be arrested for violating the Sunday taw, but until the end of the eighth inning nothing was done to molest them. At that juncture Deputy Sheriff Carter and his son Fred stepped into the field and placed all the players under arrest. The girls were loaded Into a carryall and a start made for the county jail, with a crowd of 500 men and. boys In hot pursuit, The officers were assailed with the vilest epithets and the air filled with missiles aimed at their heads. Fred Carter was finally pulled from the wagon and seriously injured by the mob. In the court house yard, while the warrants for the prisoners' arrest were being examined, a rush was made for the deputy. He was overpowered, the girls assisted into their wagon and hurried out of town before a posse could be raised. _ Base Ball Notes. . The Swea City club wear handsome uniforms. The town raised $125 to buy them, The Tama City club will play the Algona club Aug. 31 and Sept. 1 on the Algona grounds, The north side and south side of town played for the W. C, T, U. last Thursday and while the north side came out a little ahead by ringing in Chas. Palmer and Guy Taylor for battery, the south side, we think, fairly earned the applause. Ernest Raymond and F, M. Curtiss did the throwing for the south siders while Hackman stood behind the bat, B, W. Haggard and G. F, Peek umpired. WQ have forgotten the score, The Swea City club la not satisfied with its game with Ledyard, and issues the following: "We hereby challenge the Ledyard Base Ball club to play a second game on the Bancroft grounds any time this month for gate receipts, or a side bet pf $25 or po, or both. Same men to compose teams as first game^unless otherwise agreed," Salisbury and Claussen were the L,<sd- yard battery, NOTES, At Thompson, across the Une in Wlnnebago county, the house of Mrs. Ole Awbrosen was taken by a Highest MOiT MAim tornado Friday night. A school house ilso is demolished. Corn and crops are destroyed. Mrs. Ambroson and all the occupants of the house were Injured seriously. Will. Ghantland of Fort Dodgo and some others had a lively time at the Okobojl encampment. They were out on the lake in a sail boat when a storm Came up. They were blown clear across the lake under bare poles but managed to keep out of the water until the wind went down. Estherville had a cyclone Saturday morning at 5 o'clock. It took out a machine shop, and a paint shop across the street, moving several buildings off their foundations in the vicinity. Then it suddenly lifted, taking chimneys and unroolng houses. In the country It wiped out lots of corn. The Sioux City Journal tells a story on our old-time judge, J. N. Weaver. He dreamed a brother lawyer had turned preacher and was celebrating a wedding. When he carae to saying the Lord's prayer he couldn't remember it and turned to the judge and asked him to start him. He couldn't do it and the shock was so great that it woke him up. The Journal does not add whether he has hunted up his Bible since or not. Lars Hanson of Armstrong was accidentally killed Fridjiy morning. He was helping to thresh on the farm of John Peterson, hauling grain, when his team ran away. He was on the ground and as the team started he ran to catch them. He reached for the reins and was struck in the left breast by the corner ot the hay rack, breaking three ribs so that they pressed in upon the lung and pericardium, killing him almost instantly. NORMAL SOHOOL PBOSPEOTS. The Fall Term to Open Sept. 1—A Attendance Assured. wwrMtiittoitt, Prof. Lilly finished his work in the institute Saturday and is over in Hancock county surveying. He has surveyed about 70 miles of ditches already there and still more are needed. He will be back for the school opening in ten days. The term begins Sept. 1, and there is every prospect of a big attendance. Among the items of news connected with the normal, are the following; Its course of study has been accepted by the state university, and students can enter the university from it without examination, Miss Louise McCoy will be added to the faculty, and will teach German, literature, history and drawing, A class in elocution will be formed, and will be In charge of Miss Bertha Hancock, This will be a rare opportunity for students. Music classes will be instructed by Prof. Forde. This also brings the best of talent to the school. The normal school is well prepared for the year's work, and the prospect is that there will be a big attendance. PLATED WITH DYNAMITE., Henry Bliulimnii'B Three-year-old. Pounds a Dynamite Cartridge with a Hammer, A little three-year-old child belonging to Henry BHnkman, and living over north of the Milwaukee track, found, a dynamite cartridge used in blasting, yesterday afternoon, and tried to drive a nail In the end of it. Part of a thumb and the ends of two fingers are missing and one side from the heel up looks like 'a leopard's skin, but nothing serious is feared and the doctor thinks the infant will survive. The details are hard to get at as the family talks very brokenly and don't seem to know much about the matter, It is. marvelous that the child was not blown to atoms for one cartridge would kill fifty men if it got a chance at them, How the child got the dynamite is not known. TIE F,AI has gone to help this boy oii He now livens in a cottage in Fort Dodge provided by his other son. If he is taken hack to Illinois he will he arrested again and it will be a more waste of powder to attempt to get him out of standing trial.. INSTITUTE NOTES. The teachers left town Saturday. About 200 had to pass examination. Some have hold-over cerliflcatos. Supt. Reed says it was a very successful session and that a lot of hard studying wtis done in spite of the heat. One of the questions was how to settle the tramp problem. This might be answered by saying, first catch your tramp, then bring him before 'Squire Clarke. Here is a puzzle for the mathematically inclined: Find the least number which being divided by 28, 19, and 15, shall leave respectively the remainders 19, 15, and 11. The closing entertainment, Kate Smith's musical program, drew an audience that filled every available seat. It was flue throughout. One feature not down on the program was a violin solo by John G. Smith's youngest son. He drew his bow like a professional and was heartily applauded. The silver debate Wednesday afternoon drew a crowd. It was lively and entertaining. Clarence Hays made a telling argument by reading from Phil. G. Hanna's statements about silver in South America in THE UPPER DES MoiNES. It was rumored that J. J. Ryan was to help the free silver side, but he was out of town. The teachers found out what "civics and economics" mean, Friday. They passed their first examination .in the new branches. At least one question they ought to have answered, "what is meant by 16 to I?" hut likely a lot of them got it wrong for all they have read about it. They could hardly miss on, " what is the great issue between the two parties this fall." Here is a question that must have been a stunner: "How many ways have been proposed for settling the vexed question of labor and capital? Explain each quite fully." CURE FOR HEADACHE.

In our asbestos lined Sad Iron there is a hood or cover lined with asbestos, which is a non-conductor of lieat, that covers the core or iron proper. This prevents the radiation of heat from the iron and the result is that the iron Does Not Cool So Quickly as the old ."flat iron." This means that the 'handle is always cold, you take fewer steps going back and forth from your ironing board to the stove, your cloths look better after ironing. The irons are finely nickle plated and have been reduced in price from $2 to $1.50 per set of three. Let' us show you a set. Take them home 6n trial and give them a thorough tesf, it will cost you nothing to test their merits. G. M.
