A lot of speeches are o& the bills in the school houses for the remaining Week, fioth sides are active ahd eVery voter will have a chance to know all about it before next Tuesday. No attention has been given to local matters. It is unlikely that the vote for county candidates will vary much from the vote for president. There is not to be much scratching this year, apparently. One reason is both sides have acceptable nominees. Another Is the interest of the contest has all been centered on the national Issue, Voters don't even talk about county matters, much less get personally interested in any man's success or defeat. Probably but few can tell without referring to the the ballot who all the candidates are for the various offices. There will be lots of rivalry between townships to see which does the best. There will be some returns that will be political sign boards for a great many years. (THE COUNTY TICKET. The satisfaction that'was felt when the republican county ticket was named is still apparent. It is as good a ticket as we have ever had. Every man on It is qualified and Is a most excellent citizen. Most of them have proved their efficiency. Recorder Randall has been an exceptionally faithful and efficient official, and the same may be said of Auditor Calkins. Judge Thomas says Clerk Grose is one of the most attentive and efficient clerks of court he has ever known. 'Squire Raymond has shown independence and courage In prosecuting evil doers of all kinds. For the Important duties of supervisor John G. Smith and Mike Welsbrod are especially well fitted, both by long residence in the county, and by their record of painstaking attention to business entrusted to them. A better man than Mr. Smith could not be found to take charge of the county property located at the county seat, and a safer or more competent man for the west side of the county does not exist than Mr. Welsbrod. THE TOWNSHIP TICKET. The Algona township ticket is E. H. Clarke and F. M. Taylor for justices, Louis Haqkman and E. T. Burbank for constables. All of these are well known and are well qualified. Mr. Clarke has been justice for many years and has established an enviable reputation for vigor and fairness in administering justice. His court has done a great deal to discourage drunkenness, tramps, broils of all kinds, and disorderly conduct. Every republican should see that his name is included in his vote. Justice Taylor, also, has held the scales for a long time, and has been equally fair and impartial. The town cannot do better than continue both men in their present places, and every ticket should have Mr. Taylor's name. Louis Hackman and E. T. Burbank will make excellent constables. Our James' Diamond. Bancroft Register: Did those who attended the J. J. Ryan meeting 'Tues day evening notice the large, dazzling diamond in the orator's immaculate shirt front? Have they noticed in most of the county papers that he is "Loaning m.oney on farm lands at ^six percent.; only a small charge will be made for procuring this cheap money!" Mr. Ryan is a wealthy man and has made all of his wealth under the present gold standard. Can his prating about "dear money" and the im- fe* ifl LuVerne promises the biggest publican gain of any pfeclnct Kossutb, Ah Adams says that he and nearly every democrat in Humboldt will Vote for McKinley. We 'want to my a word about, All flour tpight be good flour- but it isn't, always* ' The Reporter says Wesley will give the biggest republican Vote of any precinct in the county. E. M. WentWorth Is billed for Bancroft Monday evening. Ha is the Marshalltown butter and egg man who talked to the farmers' institute in Algona last March, LuVerne will close the campaign with a flourish. Jay. C. Freemont spoke last night, Phil, C. Hannaspeaks Saturday night, and A. A. Brunson finishes Monday night. TheSwea City Herald makes comparisons: Mr. Ryan is a witty speaker who never fails to Interest his audience, while Mr. Bonar is said to present a better argument than his colleague. E. O. Towne of Illinois spoke to a crowded house Monday evening at the court house. He was introduced by Horace Mann, and gave the ablest free stiver exposition yet made in Algona. Geo. C. Call had a big meeting at the Lott& Creek school house Wednesday evening. Aug. Krause was present and asked questions, and a running debate of a half hour resulted. Mr. Call left a good impression. Wesley is to have a spread that will be metropolitan. If McKinley is elected the Bryan ladies are to get it up at a cost of not less than $1.60 a plate. If Bryan is elected, vice versa. The Bryan ladies are already looking up prices. Col. Elboeck, the gonial and able German democrat of Des Molnes, spoke in Wesley, Monday evening, and in the Rahm school house last evening for Palmer and Buckner. These are the only speeches for this ticket that have been made in the county. Rev. Southwell has been investigating a report that Mrs. McKinley owns property rented for a saloon. He has a letter from Major McKlnley's pastor about the matter, which entirely clears the republican candidate's skirts. He has satisfied himself that the report is without foundation. The good flour that's always good—do you know where to get that kind? We wilt give you the combination : It's the Daisy Mills Flour. You know it, Don't put off doing a wise thing. Try some right now.

Goeders. Haggard * Peek, Atetraets, Harness, Saddles, Whips, How to Vote There are three well defined methods of marking the ballots in Iowa under the Australian law; First. A cross in the circle at the head of your party ticket, thus [X|, Your ballot BO marked will be counted for all the candidates nominated by your party. Second. A cross in,the circle of the ticket of your own party, as above indicated, and a cross in the square, thus [XI opposite, and at the left of the name of the candidate upon any ptner ticket for whom you wish to vote, Third, Leave the circle vacant and place a cross in the square to the left of the names of all persons for whom' you desire to vote. The first method is vised when you desire to vote for all the candidates whose names appear under one party name, or in other words, where you vote a straight ticket, The second ip used when you wish to vote practically all of one ticket, and. only Sestre to vote for a limited number of names °n pthev tickets than ypurpwn, , ,. .

Hutchins made a rattling good speech at the Dehnert school house in Fenton Thursday night. S. D. Drake spoke with him and kept the crowd enthusiastic, and F. M. Taylor closed the meeting with,some stories of his debates with Senator Chubb. The house was crowded and staid till a late hour. The Whittemore Champion says Mike Welsbrod is going to be elected supervisor: The people of the county may rest assured that he will labor faithfully for their general good. Mr. Weisbrod is one of Fenton's most prosperous farmers and will be one of the long list of republican officers elected this fall. Horace Mann is put from Washington to speak for free silver. He opened at Irvington last night. He speaks at Plum Creek, in the Bice 'school house, tonight. His other appointments are: Potter's school house, Cresco, Thursday evening; Pompe's school house, Lotts Creek, Friday evening; Center school house in Sherman, Saturday night. SweaCity Herald: Verne S. Elllis believes he has good grounds for a damage suit against Algona parties who reported that he talked in favor of the democratic money plank while at the county fair. He did not even see the parties he is reported to have talked to, and while.admitting that he had an attack of "the fever" three years ago, he says he has entirely recovered and has felt no dangerous symptoms of the malady' since the first fall Some of our local democrats tried to " hodoo" Col, Eiboeok over in Prairie, They spread the report that he had been a life-long prohibitionist. The colonel was sorely grieved in view of all he had sacrificed for "personal liberty" and took it quite to heart. He had no difficulty, however, in convincing his hearest that he was sound and he had a big and enthusiastic audience at the Bahm school house last night. Maypr Haggard and Justice Clarke were over. Stoves from Our Store have gone to the different towns in the county, and at the prices we are making people will come from its remotest corners to buy their stoves, because it will pay them to do so.
