CORN CRIBS CORN CRIBS iCORN CRIBS Go to the John Paul Lumber yard for all kinds of material for cheap and durable corn cribs. Now is the time to buy. fVLEX. WHITE, The farmers about Bode have been taken in by an old game again. Some grocery peddlei's appeared among them and by offering self-binders at 836, wagons at $32, and windmills at $28, to grocery purchasers, they took a large number of orders. The groceries and machinery were to be delivered together at Livermore, but by. some delay the machinery did not arrive. It was then to be sent to Bode a few days later. The farmers paid for their groceries, but are still looking for their machinery. This is an enlarged edition of the trick played in Algona by a soap peddler, who was to give a find piece of Havlland china to every purchaser. The china failed to arrive in time and is still on the road. To Hear Bryan. Tomorrow Burlington will be jammed to pay honors to W. J. Bryan. It is the closing day of the state's semi- centennial. Bryan will be there until 2 p. m. and will make several addresses. Others expected to be present are Governor Altgeld; ex-Governor Boies; the great labor leader at Peoria, Mr. Worthington; Hon. Sabert M. Casey, democratic candidate for congress in the First district. Special excursions will he run into Burlington from all points in Iowa, Illinois and Missouri, within 100 miles. There will be several thousand horsemen in line and uniformed Bryan and Sewell clubs from Galesburg, 111., Peoria, 111., New London and other points. Danced Under McICluloy's Picture. Algona's one-time school teacher, Aiden Benedict, has been through the state lately again with his play, Pablo Roman!. He seems to have a new and better company, and made no overtures to our local opera house. At Des Moines the Capital said: The event of the performance was the fire and serpentine dance between the second and third acts by Miss Grace Hunter. This dance, or dances, for she responded to two encores, was of a high grade. The weird effect of colored lights on the graceful motions of the dancer, intensified by bewildering drapery, makes a beautiful sight. Pictures of Bryan and MoKinley were thrown upon the moving dancer, and the faint cheer that greeted Bryan's face was only a whisper compared to the storm of cheers that went up when the familiar features of McKinley were shown. ' . A Curious Sioux City Case. A. P. Call of Sioux City has raised an unusual question concerning the right of the city to tax for city purposes unplatted real estate lying within the city limits. According to Call's admission he owns a tract of many acres about four miles from the business part of town.*' It was included, he adds, within the city limits by an act of the council in 1890. He declares, however, that it always has been used for agricultural purposes and denies that its value was enhanced by bringing it inside the limits. He objects to taxation for city purposes and asks an injunction restraining the county auditor from assessing against it any city taxes. The question will be made a test. the country schools. The Tribune says "corn will tot be burned in our new city schools as It Would be liable to ruin the furnaces." Robinson's old reliable stand is headquarters for Round Oak stoves. Swea City claims to average nearly $3,000 a day paid out for grain. The Wigwam has sold a clover huller this fall to operate in the county. Arno Heise Is clerking in PalUen- hainer's hardware. He will make a good merchant. D. A. Haggard had a big sale at J. H. Potter's yesterd ay. Cows sold as nigh as $40, and horses sold well, con* slderlng the times. Clover is said to be yielding three bushels to the acre and is worth $4 a bushel. There is always money enough in crops if you hit the right crop. W. H. Reed was in Minneapolis last week and traded for a stock of dry goods and a stock of shoes. He will open up both in the. building east of Doxsee's hardware. Kraft opens the clothing season with some prices that count. During October he will make a sale that will be memorable in the county. Don't fall to visit Kraft's while in town. Whittemore Champion: The creamery boiler, which was reported Out of order last week, has been fitted up with a new set of flues by Mulllca & Ohnstedtof Algona, arid it is again in fine running order. The new Matson & McCall millinery stock is in and is more complete than ever before. They have taken special pains to get the latest city styles, and it will pay our readers to visit their rooms in the Galbraith store. Ltvermore Gazette: G. W. Collins went to Algona last Wednesday, where he has contracted to put a slate roof on a $7,000 school house.
