Call and see the new things. G. L. Galbraith & Co, CORN CRIBS CORN CRIBS ORN 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. Prof. C. F. Curtiss of the state agri* cultural college, at Ames, brother of Attorney F. M. Curtiss of Algona, is just home from attending the Illinois state fair. He tells the Daily Capital reporter that Illinois has the greatest state fair in America. Twenty-one states were represented by exhibitors. The fair lost money this year on account of rain, but it will pay all its premiums in full. Lust year it made $10,000 above expenses. The legislature gives it a large annual appropriation and has furnished about $326,000 worth of buildings. Prof. Curtiss feels the contrast between this state of affairs and those of the Iowa fair, which is now as deep in debt as it was a year ago and can't pay its premiums this year without borrowing money. The large exhibitors from other states, mostly in the stock departments, who contribute most to the success of these exhibits, will not exhibit another year in Iowa unless they got their money this year. They can't afford it. "They may just as well shut up shop," says Prof. Curtiss, " if they don't pay their premiums this year. Nebraska did the same and some of the exhibitors who came from that fair here were obliged to abandon the ciruit because they could not get their money here. If something is not done to put our state fair on a business basis at once we will not have any state fair.' Methodists at Enclo Grove. The reports of the Northwest conference at Eagle Grove showed last week that $13,700 was given to missions the past year, .that the net increase in church membership has been 2,600. Those present voted in favor of full prohibition of the liquor traffic and in favor of admitting women as delegates. There are 101 pastoral churches in the conference, which means ^at least 400 preaching places. There are 172 ordained preachers in the conference. There are 24,050 members in the bounds of the conference; 79 local preachers; 594 infants, and 1,686 adults, who were baptised last year; 3,377 Sunday school teachers, and 24,872 Sunday school scholars. The total value of churches is $594,950, and that of parsonages is $138,185. The LuVerno Silver Medal Contest. The News in speaking of the contestants in the LuVerne declamatory contest says: The last contestant was Miss Maggie Hunt of Algona. She made a good appearance, and with a strong voice and timely gestures she did full justice to her recitation. The judges unanimously awarded Miss Hunt the medal: Alg-ona Will Send a Delegation. Word comes from Mason City that preparations for the grand lodge meeting of Iowa Odd Fellows, which commences Oct. 20, are progressing finely.

Visitors at the county fair doubtless noticed a gray bearded visitor from Kansas with a patent heater he Was exhibiting; Between times he was a constant and Hot badly informed exponent of the beauties of cheap money. But money, cheap or dear, was scarce with him and his creditors now would take his fifty cent dollars and be glad to get them. Ho had one or two heaters made kere and E. N. Weaver, the butter tub factory, the hardware merchants, and Wooster's restaurant all have reason to remember him. From Algona he went to Whittemore and the story of his visit there is told by the Champion: "One Hastings has been here the past ten days trying to sell a patent ' " lodidn' 1 ' , atacsa-KO; 8ft tank heater.

Before he got started, however, Mr. Yorlce, 'with whom he had boarded, reminded him that his board bill was not paid and told him not to remove the machine until it was. He seemed surprised that some one had not paid his board, but went away leaving the machine. He claimed that he had money due him in Algona and would send the bill, but we are told that he worked a restaurant in Algona the same way, but got away with his machine. He also bought some hardware of J. M. Parley and Mr. Whitehorn did some carpenter work for which he has not paid." ,. From Whittemore Hastings came back to Algdna on foot, and Friday started north to where his son is worlt- ing near the state line north of Swea City. He said his son would put up some money and he would be back and pay up. A HOUSEHOLD TREASUBE. D. W. Fuller of Canajoharle, N.
