The marriage list is increased the past week by th*e addition of A. L Tryon Jr. and Ella Shawl, W. H. Teip- erinan and Bertha Haar. Mrs. J, M. Green, who for a number of years lived in Mexico, will talk on "Life in Mexico," in the Presbyterian church this evening at 8 o'clock. Oklahoma Sal, one of Bancroft's fast steppers, won a half-mile race at the Minnesota state fair. The Register says she went in 49J. Billy Mack was second. Special meetings will be held at the Irvington Presbyterian church each evening, beginning this evening at 8 o'clock. Everybody is invited to these meetings. The democratic county convention meets tomorrow. It is said that J. H, Richards of Burt will be named for auditor and N. E. Sheridan of Bancroft for clerk. A. C. Rankin, the molder orator of Pittsburg, is said by many to be the most effective stumper in the United States, He will speak in Algoqa next week Saturday, *. The city taxes will be two mills higher in Algona next year than they were this. The new school house and new teachers add four mills. The city tax is two mills lower.

At the city caucus " held* Friflay 'Squires Clarke and Taylor were re- nominated for Justices of the peace, andkewjs Hackm/an and E. P. Bur* bank were earned, for ponstables.

Grant Hawkins, who began his liews- paper career in THE UPPER DBS MoiNES office, hns bought the Record- Republican of Wapello, the oldest and largest paper in Louisa county. Orarit has gone right to the front do'wn in the southeast corner of the state and now owns a paper that has a big field. The rain Thursday prevented the old settlers from meeting and a new date has been sot by the officials. Thursday, Oct. ], is the date. In case the weather should interfere with an out-door meeting the gathering will be at the court house. It is important that there should be a good meeting to attend to business matters that will come up. M. M. Martenson of Wells, Minn., and Stella deary will be married tomorrow at 11 o'clock at the residence of Wm. Cleury in Algona, by Rev. Santee, president of the Iowa conference of the Seventh Day Adventists. He will remain over the Sabbath and Sunday, and will preach Friday night and Sabbath at 3 p. m., and Sunday at 3 and 8 p. m. A correspondent from Hurt writes that Prof. Rice in his free silver speech referred to Gen. Buokner, the vice presidential candidate of the gold democrats, as Gen. Bucklen, having him mixed with the arnica salve man. Perhaps the professor feels that he and the patent medicine men are in the same line of trade this fall, and this fellow feeling leads him to get their names mixed in. Readers will recall an Ida Grove sensation of some months ago. A banker got incensed at a local paper and "licked the editor." The latter has begun suit for a big sum in damages and the banker hns sent up and retained Clarke & Cohenour to defend. It will be a big case and will attract wide attention in northwestern Iowa. It adds to the list of big and unusual cases this firm have in hand. B. F. Smith's Gilder-sleeve beat the Iowa state state record on a half-mile track at the state fair last week. He won the mile race in 1.451, which is a half second faster than the best in Iowa heretofore. Gildersleeve has won in every racing meeting he has been in. He'went to Webster City from the Bancroft Fourth of July races, then to Omaha. He is now at Sioux City. Gildersleeve is making a great record this season. The Ingalsbee-O'Rourke tree claim contest was hotly contested in Des Moines last week. A. P. Lowery appeared with Sullivan and Judge Carr with Sessions. The hearing began Wednesday morning and was adjourned at noon for the engine-smash-up at the fair grounds. It then lasted all of Thursday and Friday. A decision will not be announced before the last of next month. O'Rourke had eight witnesses and Ingelsbee 12. The Presbyterians have bought the corner lot east of C. J3. Heise's home and will build a church the coming season. A better location could not have been chosen. The church is prospering finely, and sent quite a delegation to the Presbytery at Spirit Lake last week. Rev. Innes was accompanied by Wm. Dodds of Union, Mr. .Lloyd of Irvington, and Miss Lizzie Rioker as delegate for the Christian endeavor. They report an enthusiastic meeting, Miss Kate Goeders, well known and highly esteemed in Algona, was married last week Tuesday at St, Jo. by Father Leohtenberg to Henry Pinz of Alton. She met her husband while visiting a cousin in Alton the past summer and the acquaintance thus began has ended happily for both. Mr. Pinz is a dealer in machinery, is a thrifty business man, and in every way an estimable citizen, The marriage was quiet, attended only by relatives, John Goeders and family went from Algona. The remains of Mrs, Berry Ayers were brought from Ames Monday for burial in the Algona cemetery, She died of typhoid fever at her Ames home at the early age of 23 years, leaving two little children, Mr, Ayers, hep husband, is a son of Leonard Ay ere, and grew up in the county, For four years be has been a photographer at The Work Was Oorte Mostly by Accla- rnation, and Mafrnony Was the Prominent Feature.

The county convention Friday was largely attended, it was enthusiastic, named a good ticket, and adjourned feeling good. Samuel Mayhe was permanent chairman and made a little speech, which struck the keynote of the convention. Mr. Mayne is making rattling good speeches all over the county this fall. B' ah kef Schaible, who is something of a talker himself, and Mart Weaver acted as secretaries. Recorder Randall, Auditor Calkins, and Clerk Grose were quickly disposed of, going in by acclamation. "'Then came a ballot on county attorney,. On account of the changing of votes it is impossible to tell how the first ballot would have stood. When all was over, 'Squire -Raymond was nominated by 58i to E. V. Swelling's 44, and E. H. Clarke's 6i. The nominalion was made unanimous. There was one ballot to name a successor to C. C. Chubb for supervisor. The same changing of votes occurred. In the final outcome John G. Smith had 65,F. Dlngley 36, and Jerome Finnegan 6. Two ballots were laken to name a successor lo B. F. Smith. On the first, Ole Oleson of Svvea City had 53, Mike Weisbrod of Fenton 54, and J. O. Rawson of Lotts Creek 1. II was Ihe closest vote ever taken in a county convention. The second ballot gave Weisbrod the one vote and he was nominated. Seneca township, which lies between the two, gave two votes to Weisbrod and one to Oleson, really deciding the contest. B. F. Smith, Geo. Allen, and C. S. Eendleton each received votes, but not enough to cut any figure. The ticket is unexceptionable throughout. It would be hard to pick out a better one. Mr. Randall has been as faithful and accommodating a recorder as the county has ever had, the same may be said of Mr. Calkins as auditor, Mr. Grose as clerk and Mr. Raymond as atlorney. If Kossuth always has as good officials as these have been, it will always be a well managed county. The new men on the licket are the candidates for supervisor. John G. Smilh has lived in Ihe counly 30 years and Mike Weisbrod 20. Mr. Smith has the lime, the acquaintance with the county, and the business ability to render splendid service. Mr. Weisbrod is known as one of the thriftiest, most successful, and most trustworthy young farmers in this part of the state. The convention was a success from start to finish. Its work will be crowned with success at the polls. ALGONA'S SECOND EALLY. . . Directors— Win.

Algona will haye a second big political rally nexl week Saturday, Sept. 26. A. C. Rankin, known as the molder orator of Pittsburg, Pa., will speak in the afternoon. He is said by those who have heard him to be one of the most effective stump speakers in the United States. It will pay everyone who desires to hear a vigorous ex- posilion of republicanism to be present. It is not yet decided where he will speak. If the weather will permit he may make an out-door address. Dolllver's Dates. Chairman Crose has about decided upon the following program for the Dolliver meetings in the county: Burt, Monday evening, Oct. 5; Germania, Tuesday afternoon, Oct. 6; Ledyard, Tuesday evening, Oct. 6; Swea City, Wednesday afternoon, Oct. 7; Bancroft, Wednesday evening, Oct. 7; Wesley, Thursday evening, Oct. 8; Whitlemore, Friday evening, Oct. 9; Algona closing rally, Saturday afternoon, Oct. 10. Mr. Dolliver will be accompanied throughout by M. D. O'Connell and the two will give Kossuth a rousing week. The big tent will be on hand and will be erected at all the outside towns and in Algona if necessary. This will be the biggest series of meetings ever held in the county, Speaker Byers at Bancroft. H. W. Byers, speaker of the last legislature, is billed to speak at Bancroft, but no date has been secured, Mr, Byers is one of the strongest talkers in the state and will give Bancroft an excellent speech. Back in the '70's Mr. Byers used to farm over north of Wesley and one season raised a field of flax with R. I. Bray ton in Seneca. He knows somewhat about the alleged retrograde movement among the people durjng the last 23 years, and he can illustrate what hap gone on in Kossuth from his own -experience. Rock Rapids as before the saloons wer regularly licensed. If this is a fact i argues powerfully against the legalize! saloon. And certainly tho frequenc, of such saloon brawls as occurred Fri day afternoon do not help the matter The fact seems to be that the liquo business wants license because i thrives upon it. The writer was one of those who be lieved that under the mulct law re strictions the evils of drunkeness and disorder could be better controlled than with an illicit traffic, though, prefer ring to see the element of profit eithei tovendororpublicremoved. But wecon fess disappointment at the result. The drink habit is surely growing in Rock Rapids, and growing because of the se curity had by the open drinking place We don't believe it is a good thing fo businesffer for the town. True, the city is drawing a considerable revenue from the traffic, (and using some of i to build a jail,) but ia not the tendenej to blind our eyes to real conditions? As a confirmed saloon town, at the present rate, what kind of a place wil Rock Rapids be iu ten years? A $2,800 interest in a good-paying business to exchange for real estate in Kossuth county.
