It was the biggest crowd ever in Al- gona , circus day not excepted T be fair grounds were full, the streets were full, everything was full except the people. 00 isy enough very No drunken taan was to need arresting, and ft little at the outset and neve? few showed any signs of drinking. Some say the morning parade was better than it was two years ago. Some say it would be impossible to have a better one. JudgeLadd said he never saw one like it in his life. It was a great showing for the enterprise and taste of those who got it Up. -The morning exercises were enjoyed by everybody. Geo. E. Clarke introduced Judge Ladd gracefully, Rev. Landis gave an earnest invocation, E. p McElroy read the declaration impressively, the glee club never sang better, the Algona band is the finest in Iowa, and the Wesley band is second to none but ours. The high' dive was thrilling, but looked easy enough, the races of the afternoon were lively, the ball game was for blood, and only one man was hurt. The lemonade, ice cream, peanuts and gum were all up to Fourth of July requirements. All nature must have seen that Algona was breaking the record, for the elements got together for the finale and furnished an evening's show not down on the bills, and one that was more thrilling than all the sky rockets ever shot in Iowa. It was a great and glorious day. It was observed as John Adams would have wished. If everybody did not go home a better American citizen it was his own fault. May we all enjoy many returns of the glorious Fourth. THE MORNING PARADE. An Aggregation of Splendor Rarely Witnessed Anywhere. As Col. Spencer, Col. Cooke, and Dr. Morse, with their numerous aides, lined up the floats at the school house at 10 o'clock it dawned upon everybody's mind that fully as fine a display was on as that of two years ago. The inarch west was led by Company F, the Algona band, the carriages with the speakers and officers. Then followed the exhibits of thirty-five business houses, some of special elegance. Those participating were Jas. Taylor, John Goeders, the Wigwam, Brownell, J. E. Stacy, C. M. Doxsee, G. M. Johnson, Gilt Edge Cafe, Deering corn cutter, A. D. McGregor, Galbraith & Co., Geo. C. Call, Walker "Bros., Republican, Dr. Morse, Matson & McCall, Grove & Son, J, C. Anderson, Setchell & Setchell, F. S. Norton, Spurbeck & Lambert, Algona Deposit & Loan association, Wilson mills, Courier, Sohu & Waterhouse, D. B. Avey, Langdon & Hudson, Mullica & Ohnstedt, J. R. Laird, Chrischilles & Herbst. The Grace Hezlep company had an attractive float, the little girls representing the states looked pretty, and the G, A. R. were out in force, Wm. Peck astride the cannon as of thirty years ago. Dr. Morse's triumph of sanitary science was a handsomely designed float, health in the shape of a big warrior destroying' disease in the shape of a skeleton at his feet. Jas. Taylor's four white horses draw- ,,}ng an elegant bower of fine lace were very handsome, Mullica & Ohnstedt's boiler making was a curious exhibit. The boys riveted several bolts while on the march, and had a big boiler on their wagon. Doxsee's self-working churn, sewing machine, and other domestic implements looked easy and caught everybody's eye. The Matson & McCall float with the Alex. White ponies in white harnesses was very handsome, The Courier's job press turning out cards lined with patriotic sentiments was a feature. ,, Sohu & Waterhpuse's big cigar caught the smokers, It was big enough for a whaleback steamboat, Brownell's big sb,oe was attractive, and DurdaU's big pants amusing, The Gftlbraith float was very tasty, and John Goeders' had a big dry goods display, ,, , It was fine throughout, It could not be better, and every exhibitor is deserving of special and elaborate mention. But tbpse, who did not see it can not appreciate it, and 'must come next time, > A9 800ft a8 ^ was over * £ hft . llefl ges were thick and one or two more games will be arranged, one to be played at Algona,. STOftM, Presented the Best Part of the En* tertaihtrient of the fifty. The first intimation of anything wrong for the evening was the cyclone signal hung out up town. About 4 o'clock a bank of black clouds appeared in the west. By 6 o'clock a big wind arrived, and during the next four hours rain came in small torrents and enough of a blow to get lots of people Into the cellars. The people had quite generally taken the hint early and gone to their homes. Some stayed and spent the night in town. A great many came in Monday evening when the rockets were allowed to soar in a serene sky and when the band concert was a delight. _ _ _ LOST— On the Fourth, either In town or at the fair grounds, a five-pointed "O.

It Soars High in Spite of a Little Preliminary Ruction. Whittemore had a successful celebration and a big time in spite of the legal set-to in Algona Thursday. Father Tierny gave an eloquent address and a big crowd was present. The good order was marked all day. Whittemore never does things by halves. The legal proceedings arose over the city council vacating a street at the west side of town for the speaker's stand and a bowery. Some east-enders didn't like this and got Clarice & Cohenour to bring action before Judge Quarton. The council was represented by Sullivan & McMahon. The judge decided that closing the street was Illegal, but nothing came of it, as after all parties got home they decided to use the pavillion just the same. A. J. ORTQN SUIOIDES. A Woman Throws Him Out Doors? and He Takes Strychnine. Andrew J. Orton has been living for a couple of years on the Magoon land in Cresco. Friday he took occasion to correct his wife by slapping her. At this a neighbor's wife, Mrs. Reed, picked Orton up and threw him out of doors. This exercised such a depressing effect upon his mind that he took a dose of strychine, having some about for killing gophers, and the result was fatal. Friday afternoon just before going home Orton went to A. D. Clarke and borrowed $10, as the bank had closed for the day. He was a fairly thrifty farmer, and his sudden act was very unexpected. The remains were taken Saturday to Jewel Junction. Juhe adjourned session, auditors offle, Algona, Iowa, June 28,189". Board met in adjourned session. All members present.

Gildersloovo and Optlinus Run at Bluo Earth City Saturday for $400 —1'ho Bancroft Races. As an outcome of the Bancroft races Glldersleeve and Optlmus are to goat Blue Earth City Saturday for $400. It will be the race of tho year. Ida M. was to have met Glldersleeve at Bancroft,'but a wreck out of Chicago and a lay-over at Eagle Grove made her too late. Tho Friday races were well attended, but celebrations, picnics, etc., cut down the Saturday crowd, while the Monday race was declared off because of the bud track. The Bancroft association comes out $100 behind, but it was promptly paid, and the horse men say they will all come again. The half mile run Friday was declared off, the other horses would not meet Glldersleeve; tho three-eighths pony race was won' by Miller & Mc- Clabe of Whittemore with the blaclc pony that won In Algona Saturday, In 40J seconds; the mile running race was won by a Belle Plalne horse in 1:49 with six entries, Oklahoma Sal coming third; in the farmers' trot P. M. Barslou drove J. Mack's horse at lightning speed and won. Saturday's first race was for half- breeds a halt mile, Boetschor's Grover C. won easily in 63 seconds. Gildersleeve won tho three-fourths mile easily In 1:21. W. Sealook's horse won the I'i mile repeat. Sealock used to llye in Bancroft and since leaving has been racing in St. Louis, Newark, N, J., etc. A lot of good horses wore present, and it is too bad that the attendance did not pay. _^_^__ BEER CAUSES A FIGHT. ' On Interviewing. If it is worth thewhiloof a public Wan to grant an interview at all it is certainly worth his while that it should be douo well, and it cau only be done well if he condescends to step down from his pedestal and co-operate almost en collegue with the interviewer. In tho first place, tho interviewer, who has had a large experience in hiq craft, is a specialist. Ho is more likely than the interviewee to understand the conditions'. which go to tho construction of a suo-j oessful interview, and therefore hd should be allowed a tolerably free hand\^ as regards form and arrangement. Per- 1 sonafly, of course, I always take stooK as rapidly as I can of the interviewed and consult his humor in everything. After all, ho is tho person most inti' mately concerned with the success of thfl joint production, as it is his name with which the public is concerned and no'l that of the interviewer, who is almost invariably anonymous. I am always in his debt for the concession of the interview, and if he wished it he must be largely master of its manner. I am only suggesting that tha wisest plan, after the original act oi gracious condescension has been comn mitted, is to forget for the brief hour of the interview that you are a Jupiter and the other man a black beetle. Don't imagine that he is necessarily unconver- sant with affairs political or literary. Why, a rising politician actually explained to ino how a most elementary word should be spelled—quite of hid own motion too. I was in no difficulty whatever. In my soul I remember thai I began to sibilate "prig," but I suppressed quickly the nascent naughtiness. —National Review. Some of FOB time loans on real estate . a at Kossuth County State Bank.

They came In contact with a farmer by the name of E. Bruse who was on his way home with a keg of beer in his wagon. Mr. Bruse says the boys tried to take the beer away from him. A fight ensued in which the boys struck him twice on the side of the head with a bottle cutting it open badly. Mr. Bruse got away and got his shot gun and followed them up and emptied the contents of it into them, but the greater part of the charge struck the wagon seat, Young Borcey got ten or fifteen shot into his back, and Porter twenty or more in his. Bruse came back to town and swore out a warrant for their arrest. Deputy Sheriff Cosgrove drove out Sunday afternoon and brought them to town.

At such times his wife has remarked, "Why don't you cook yourself?" The last time she said this was at supper time Monday night. He didn't answer, but after supper he filled the ,cook stove with wood, took off his coat and started in. He got her cookbook down and began at the commencement, ' and made two pans of doughnuts, two batches of biscuit, -molasses gingerbread, hasty pudding to fry for breakfast, cookies, tarts, six custard pies, boiled vegetables for breakfast hash, and, iu half an hour had the stove covered w-ith dishes of all kinds. His wife went out into the kitchen and dropped speechless into a chair. 'At half past 11 that night he washed the last dish and closed the dumb waiter—filled with food which compared very well with some his wife had made and, went to bed. The next noon his wife handed him a hill of $7,49', which slie said was the amount of raw material; he had used the night* before.
