This winter in the face of hard fitlmes it has been advanced to ?10a ton, le freights from the east to Chicago |tare lower than ever. At Sioux City the commercial asso- loiation have addressed the railways on Ithe subject. The following luttor ,ox- fplains itself: Sioux CITY, Sept. 1, 1890.—Gentlemen: j$ Among some of tho best informed truffle I/officials the suspicion exists that the rate of Tf3 per ton on hard coal, Chicago to Missouri , river points, will not be maintained during ftho present shipping season. The dealers Itand consumers are holding off making pur- |K chases, for, on account of the oppressed, ^.condition of business, there ure very few " who can afford to buy at the present high S " rices. If there ever was a time in the istory of the northwest when the price of s? hard coal should be reasonably low, now is |that time. If present prices are maintained jthe very lowest possible amount will be i consumed. The utility of using corn for . fuel this winter is being already considered, land this would result in lessening the vol- f.time of traffic for the railroads in reducing fthe tonnage both east and westbound. \ It does seem to» be the part of wisdom, i,from every good standpoint, for the cur- 1 Tiers to get together and do what they f reasonably can toward making a cheaper Iprice for hard coal. The adoption of a treasonable rate, at this time, will give loetter stability to the traffic, for, consider- |ing the unfortunate business conditions pre- Ivailing, it is not likely the rate of $3 will Bong continue, and if demoralization sets in, .Ithe rate is quite likely to go to the figures rof last year; and in the interest of revenue, for the railroads, and to ue helpful to the people, when help is moat needed eavly In K the season, great good must result from the f fixing pf a rate, at this time, that will ap- | peal to the fairness of all concerned.

This Is the third yeaf but of four that rain has cut off the Second day, Thursday was bright, clear, and pleasant and the crowd Was big. Friday was as disagreeable TJB a fall day well can be in Iowa. Including child* ren anywhere from 5,000 to 6,000 people were on the grounds. They saw Hner exhibits in many departments than ever before. The Algona and Weston Comedy company bands fur* nished music, the merry-go-round and a.half dozen like attractions, besides venders stands of all kinds, and the Catholic ladies' dining tent, added to the attractions. TheKing's Daughters hand a stand, the relief corps ladies another, while the reading room had a tent. Tho races In the afternoon were tho most interesting that have been given in late years, and the program for Friday promised even better than Thursday, The total receipts were $844. The state adds $200 making a total of $1,044. The expenses cannot yet bo announced but will probably reach $1,100. The fair association may come out even, not better than that. TttK RACES. The flrst race called Thursday afternoon was the free-for-all trot, There were four starters. At the outset one bicycle sulky got a wheel set and the horses had to bo sent off the track. The novelty race was called. There were 16 entries, Sailor owned by Calvin Powolson came in ahead, Maud, owned by Shultz, second, and Baldy and Daisy, owned by Vincent brothers, third and fourth. By this lime the trotters were ready and began one of the best races ever seen on the track. It was between Walter R. and Clay Royal, each winning two beats. On the fifth the former won by a close pull. Batchelor Boy went in a road cart, his sulky being delayed somewhere on the road, claiming to be able to boat either of the winners. It was exciting and hold the crowd until long after 6 o'clock. Tho free-for-all half mile run was interlarded. There were six starters. B. F. Smith's Flossie P. was an easy winner, Nellie of Whittemoro and Daniel Boone of Wesley making a hot race for second. County Fair Notes. E. R. Cook showed an apple inches around. The Catholic ladies served a good dinner, as they always do. E. P. Bircher is at the Humboldt f lir with a lunch counter. The kids broke out 22 window lights on the fair ground the past year. The famous poor farm bull took first premium. He is absauliful animal. A lady 90 years and seven months had a knit tidy she had just made on exhibition. The display of corn was very fine. One feature of it was a fancy rack by F. A. Witham. The stock judge was R. B. Rutherford of Aurelia. He was horse judge at the state fair.

Amy Hedrick entertained the people and showed the excellent qualities of his pianos. The feature of the fruit exhibit was some peaches raised by Mrs. Leonard Ayers. The tree grew from a pit. The peaches were large, ripe, and delicious in appearance.. One of the features of the second day's program that was lost was a race between Pete Christenson's trotting dog and a horse. The dog was ready and is said to be speedy, Some money was found on the grounds. The owner can get it by calling on the treasurer and making a reasonable guess as to its amount and the place where it was lost. Mrs. Horan and Mrs, Fred. Fuller had much talked about displays of fancy work. Mrs. Fuller, besides taking care of her family of three child* ren, had done all the work since Christmas. . Mrs. Frank Stacy had her pocket picked on the grounds, She lost $4 and her purse. This was in the afternoon before the burglary at Geo, G. Call's and probably by the same gang, " is the only case reported, There were 2,375 single admission tickets sold Thursday, The exhibitors tickets number 81, All the renters of privileges, horse race men, dining tent assistants, etc,, had special tickets.

Dr. Kensfick's brother was up from Bolmond with a couple of high bred horsns to exhibit. One was Axineor,a colt by the famous Axtell.

Atldlson Fisher's 75th Hlrtliduy Is the Occasion of a Himdsomo Clmlr HeliiK Presented by His Friends. Addison Fisher, who has lived in Rive^dale since the Kossuth settlement was made, was 75 years old Monday. Some of his friends found it out and by throwing in bought him a handsome chair. About 4 o'clock he was inveigled into A. D. McGregor's store, where he was taken by surprise by the presentation. He thanked everybody, but said his friends needn't expect him to sit down yet awhile, he wasn't old enough. He invited everybody to come down and visit him. Mr. Fisher does not look over 60 years, and but few who did not know would believe that he had gotten five years ^beyond the alloted span. The following letter is.'self explanatory: To the Editor: I do not feel that I have made proper acknowledgement to the donors uf that beautiful chair, presented by my friends in Algona on the anniversary of my birthday. I was somewhat at a loss to know why I should receive such an honor. I have never considered myself to be very pretty nor uncommonly good, and I know of no other reason except that I like the boys and try to be good to them. I shall have embroidered on that chair the word fusion because it was presented by members of all political parties. Sometime in the future when I become old and my hair gets gray I shall sit in that chair and think with gratitude of its donors. And I will pass it down to my posterity with the injunction, "always be good to the boys," A. FISHEB. A $2,800 interest in a good-paying business to exchange for real estate in Kossuth county, Inquire of Doxsee & Foster, . SEE Burns for stoves, He has them for hard or soft coal or wood, All new and none better are made, Joslnh said he "gueirfed ho wouldn't go to the fair." I sot my eyes rip 111 onto him and told him he 'WAS a goin' to tho fair und I was gotn' with him. I told'htm ho didn't want lo go jest because he had boon traipsin' 'round at Saint Paul a tnggin' after them old soldiers a nmkin' b'llevo ho was in the war, when he never fit a day in his life, 'ceptin' with old Brin' when she kicked over his milk pail. Josiah has al'ays been Vommodatln', so whqn ho sees I was determined like, ho wont to hitch up old Blaze while I run over to nee Huldy's baby's flrst tooth that cum through thn nito before. Wai, we did go to the fair, and th« first thing I sot my eyes onto after we paid our 50 oonls in silver to get into it was a feller tryin'to warm tho hull fair ground with a little stove sot right out doors with only three jints of pipe, and I do b'Jiovo he would a dorio it if they had put a roof on it. There wa'nt hardly any smoke cumin' out of tho top, and says I to Josiah: "That feller have to got up more steam'n that if he heats this hero fnir;" but when wo got to it there was a powerful lot o' boat cumin' from the thing. I says'to the feller: "S:\.y, mister, may you call that air?" HY-says, "That, Mrs. Allen, is Cole's Hot Blast Air Tight Soft Coal Heater, a stovo that burns up the gas and smoke, and you can shut it up so tight that it will hold fire all night with corn cobs; you cnn keep as steady a heat with it ns you can with hard coal and stive 25 per cent, of your fuel; it will burn hard and soft coal, wood, cobs, or anything combustible you can put in it." " What did you say was its name?" says I. "Cole's Air Tight," says he. "There, Josiah," what says I," "that's the Mrs. Bryan had last same stovo that frofn'without a baby in the liouse as doin' without that utovu." "Where cnn I buy one?" says f. "The only place in town you can gut one is at Doxseo's Hardware! Store," says he. Ho will let you take one home and uso it a whole month, and if you don't like it he will pay back your money when you bring it'back." I told Josiah that he-must get one of them stoves; that ho wasn't goin' to try to keep fires air nito in our old stove another winter and. jump up two or threw times every nito to put on coal and cum back to bed winter, arid she I without vvnrmin' his feet.
