They were in the pasture. Mrs. Isenberger js at .home, her health fully recovered. Old friends of the Seeley family are glad that she has been so fortunate, . The firm of Hoxie & Brunson has dissolved, Mr, Brun&on retiring, He will devote his time to the farm and take life a little easier. W, H, Nycura is back from Chicago and bids fair with good care to recover his usual health. He is looking much better than when he left, The Equal suffrage club will meet with Mrs. L, M. Horton on Friday evening at 8 o'clock shai'p. All friends are cordially invited to be present, *A boy named Diver of Burt, son of the butter maker there, got his eyes burned with powder at the celebration. Dr. Kcnefick fixed him up all right, Chas, Devine pleaded guilty before 'Squire Taylor to being drunk and paid a fine of $10 and costs. The other charge of threatening an assault was dropped. Lightning struck the pole the high dive waa made frpm Saturday, The little flag was cut off and the pole shattered so that it broke in two when taken down, Mies McEjjroe was in yesterday to say that the item last week in regard to the McEnroe sisters entertaining at Mr-, Platt's was an, errar* We gladly make the QprreQtipn, pre|efi|i||jYe Jojlyn ing ) J, a *liflV!ttft6i 'Bliltf '''Jt&AfiJJ -0f Jt^SYiOff E'vXtft SCjRQtLGt Of l&Ott^ of W&tQJS 1 * *VJ& Xs ,*A9i»& i iv~.- "<r.~ i >,.

From 8 o'clock until 3 in the morning he lay in a stupor that he could not be roused from. Two doctors sat up all night and brought him through, but he was very sick, The Wheaton Illinolan has this note Of local interest! W; fit. Conner, who mOVed here with his family last fall, has purchased a lot Ob Center street one block west of College, and has plans for a modern house which Will be built immediately. D. A. Haggard is out again minus his beard and a small cancer oh his lip, He wants it distinctly understood, however, that his lip is not in anyway impaired, and that it is as useful as ever, as coming auction sales will fully demonstrate. Friday a $1.90 round trip rate is made to Spirit Lake, Rev, Sam. Jones wilt speak and Claude Saner, the wonderful boy soprano singer, will sing. It is a wonderfully reasonable opportunity to attend the opening of the great Chautauqua season. The letter of President Ives on the matter of a junction at the. crossing of the Northwestern and Burlington railways up north proves to not be final. The railway commissioners expect to be in the county in about four weeks and inspect the situation carefully. Robt. Wright had a big raising for his new barn and tonight the boys intend to dedicate it with a dance. It is a model barn 52x60 feet with 26 foot posts. That makes it very high and gives a hay mow worth talking about. It is one of the old-fashioned framed barns. Geo. Hunter's boy rode one of Dr. Glasier's ponies in the parade and afterwards wanted to get his picture taken. At this critical time he went to mount the wrong pony, which resented the mistake by turning and glv-. ing him a sound kick. He is able to be about. Application was made before Judge Quarton.Monday for the sale of the equities the Lund estate has in the home farm lands. These lands sold under foreclosure at less than $30 an acre. The estate has a right to redeem. It is this right that will be sold. The creditors ask for the sale. The Adventists celebrated on Saturday by getting together in quarterly meeting and raising $186 in cash for missionary work. Wm. Cleary as elder presided and delegates were present from Bancroft and Wesley. They thought this more profitable than squandering their money for fire works and display. After the hot sun had shone on the rollers on the Courier job press in the parade Saturday they became of the consistency of good glue and distributed themselves all over everything in their vicinity. There is nothing under the sun so wonderful in its constrction as a printer's roller, nor so contrary in its movements. It is not a good feature of a parade in the sun. J. W. Wadsworth's name is added this week to the list of authorized candidates for legislative honors. Mr. Wadsworth is so well known over the county that he needs no introduction. He is a strong man in the qualities needed in the state management and would iim'.ie himself felt for good if sent to Des Moines. The county will make no mistake if it settles on Mr. Wads- wortu. Sanator Healey and A.'N. Botsford were here from Fort Dodge yesterday taking testimony in the Lund-Buss land title cases. They are with the defense in the cases' affecting the rights of the actual holders out near Sexton and these will be heard in October. Friday C. A. Dudley of Des Moines was here to represent the interests of the Iowa Loan & Trust company in one of these suits.' Dr, Morse got a pretty good joke on himself Saturday, He found t a man seriously overcome with heat and whiskey lying in the street in front of Shelley & Pettibone's. He got some ice water and cooled the fellow's fevered brow and got him on his feet, whereupon he offered to fight and finally insisted on fighting, The doctor having 1 gotten him up had to take him down and hold him awhile until be became pacified, • . The remains of Mrs, Geo, Turner were brought from Independence, where she died Sunday, and were interred here yesterday morning, Rev. Landis saying a few last words at the cemetery, Mrs, Turner was 44 years of age, and had lived in Algona since 1872. For over 20 years she has been subject to epileptic fits, and in one of them she died at the asylum. She leaves a husband and five children, who have the sympathy of the community, ' During the punning race at the grounds Saturday Fred, Myers, who works for Oscar Naudain, drove his team across the track and left the wagon partly in the way. The flret horses passed him, but a cloud of dust following Jhem obscured the view of the others and one of them bit -Myers, HJB team then tipped the waggn over, plunged, thrpugh the tenpe, %nd scat' e crowd, Myers was npt §§ri- walking hopje 18&1 cans and populists by noticing theto till after election.

The State Register says: "There has beeti ho entertainment in ties Moines more worthy of patronage than that of Mr. Tremaine. His sun pictures are works of real art t aha give one the benefit of wondrously perfect views of the objects of interest in the old world, at a small cost. The Register is at all times pleased to speak Well of a tnerltorous entertainment* and it affords it pleasure to recommend this exhibition ifi the highest terms to our people, ,., ;,.. ,.„ Milwaukee Excursion ttaies.

A correspondent -writes: "I Was one? witness to, I think, one of the most uniqne demonstrations that ever took place on the stage, and in it the veteran actor Howe was a leading personage. It •was in the days of the famous old Haymarket company, and they were playing in Manchester. Its leading members •were Buckstone, Chippendale and Howe. Kendal, who was a new actor, was trying to fill the vacancy which Parren's departure had made, and Mrs. Kendal, then Madge Robertson, was just coming to the front. The old Haymarket comedies were given with delicious freedom. On a particular Saturday night there was.however, something going on among tile actors and actresses on the stage which the audience could not fathom. "I think," continues the correspondent, "the play was 'She Stoops to Conquer. ' Buckstone's delivery waa thicket than usual. Chippendale was superb as the excitable f ather, and the twinkle in his eye was merrier and his hop moro erratic than its wont. Howe was perfectly buoyant, and his pointed remarks mystified the mystery. Keudal and Mis3 Robertson played with delightful—almost gushing—affection as the lovera 'The lessee of the theater, who was apparently in the secret with the frieuda around him, for a long,time refused to tell them the cause of the exuberance on the stage, but as the denouement of the play came about he let out that Kendal and Madge .'Robertson that afternoon had been made man and wife in a Manchester church, and that on' the fall of the curtain in reality the lovers in moro than the sense of the comedy had been made one. The news spread through-the theater like wildfire/ and when Buckstone, Chippendale and Howe, each generously holding each other up, brought the newly wedded bashful couple to the front of the stage cheers went up such as are rarely heard in a theater. Howe was the last of that famous trio to sur vive.."—Westminster Gazette. \^@ Selling Canned Goods, California green gage plums, locj CaL egg plums, tod; Cal* apricots IDC; Cal. peaches, ioc; best canned tomatoes, 8cj 4 cans best sweet cofn, 2$c; best^evaporated raspberries, tgc', good Cal. prune, 4^ good dried apricot, 4^c.

Some years ago German bakers began to be employed in London for baking fancy bread. In course of time they blossomed into small employers, drove out all competitors by sweating their countrymen, until they have now monopolized the east end business and have nearly doubled in numbers within the last 20 years. Just the same with the butchers, furriers, tailors and hairdressers. Some of these trades are further swelled by the failures—the young fellows who cannot pass their staats-eX' amen—and are' shipped off to England to sink or swim, as our own failures ara sent to Australia. A German publishei in London told me that one day he met five old university friends in Regent's park, and every one had become a bak er. Hairdressing is another refuge foi the destitute, waiting iii restaurants a third. The "increase of Germans, therefore, does not represent any addition to the industrial life of the country in the shape of especial skill or new trades, as was the case with the French emigrants in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The only exceptions are a few men employed in the high class bakeries and those connected with the fur trade. In ajl other industries they are distinctly inferior workmen awl only employed OB the cheapest and commonest work. The French, the Italians and the Scan* dinaviahs excel in every industry pursued 'by them in this country, and in some departments they possess certain unique capacities, as cabinetmakers, f on Instance, goldsmiths and glassblowera The Germans are signalized by a general incapacity for doing first rate worfc of any kiu4 ( with the exceptions mentioned,—National Review.

Silent on That Topic. "I-read a very interesting article the other day," said the landlady, who was presiding at the breakfast table coffeepot "On what subject?" asked the star boarder as he took his second cup. "It was by some celebrated scientist, but really I've forgotten his name—very distinguished man, though, I assure you," "But what did he say, Mrs. Hash- croft?" asked the pretty sohoolma'am. 1 'It was on the subject of coffee drinking. He said that the coffee drinking habit was one which grows upon its slaves with all the force of the craving for intoxicating liquors." At this she looked significantly at the star boarder, who was handing up his cup for replenishment. "I wish I could quote his exact worda I have the clipping up stairs somewhere, and I'll try to find and pass it around among the ladies and gentlemen. It was really a wonderful article. It went exhaustively into the chemical constituents of coffee. Altogether he makes a strong case against coffee and shows its deleterious effects upon the hum an. system." ' 'Mra Hashcrof t,'' said the star boarder as he again passed up his cup, "only half full this time, please. Thanks.
