Clarke and J. W. Sullivan were in Chicago last week taking testimony in the Russ-Lund land cases. C. M. Doxsee lost the combination to his safe, and has had to drill into it. It was a big job and ruined the lock. Algona's pop factory popped and the proprietors escaped Friday, leaving but a fiz for a lot of mourning creditors. The subject of the sermon for next Sunday morning at the M. E. oh.urch is, Necessity of Your Gospel Records. A. H. Paine says hay will start out better this fall than it did last. He looks for a good crop and gppd prices. well is down 450 feet and they are digging in blue shale. The machine is running day and night this week.

It also arranged to fix up the normal school builditog enough to keep it in repair, Carl Wauge wanted a flash light picture of his barber shop. Something about the flash was too sudden for the big glass in his front Window abd it was shattered. Instead of $186.60 collected by the Advehtists Oh the Fourth for missionary work, the sum was $288.50. A huh* dred dollars these days is too import* ant to be overlooked, Prizes for the next W» C, T.

For handsomest plant $1, For largest blossom— $1, J, C, Stahl of Bancroft has been appointed deputy game warden by Fish Commissioner Delevan. He will be a good man for' the place and will keep the north end straight, It is stated that the trains on the Northwestern and Burlington roads stop now at the crossing north of Ban' croft for all who want to change, It is well to keep this in mind, John Kllnglehoeffer, who lives half way to Whittemore, had new potatoes in Monday and got $1 a bushel. His corn is shoulder high and tasselling. He escaped the spring frosts. The list of floats given last week was incomplete. The banner of A. L. Peterson's photograph gallery, among others, was overlooked, also Bradley & Nicoulin's handsomely decorated trap. John G. Smith, Guy Taylor and Henry Durant go to Clear Lake next week for the big shooting tournament. It opens Tuesday, and will bring together more crack shots than have lately met in the west, Mat.

No one deserves it better than our faithful court house janitor. Geo. R. Trenmine has had good houses for his course of illustrated lectures at the opera house, and has entertained and instructed all who have heard him. His apparatus is the best and his comment is to the point and interesting. C. D. Ward stakes his reputation on the statement that his corn grew four inches last Thursday night. It is some compensation to know this. It will take that much extra corn to make up the flesh that was sweat out during that night. C. D. Pettibone is up and about. He lost 23 pounds last week, but still tips the beam at 200, which is a comfortable weight for this season. His friends are glad that he had no worse . a time than he did. Geo. L. Galbraith has the foundation in for a big store at the new town of Galbraith between Irvington and Lu- Verne. This fall he expects to be ready for business. He has the site for a good trading point.

The firm name is Drake & Gortner and they represent the Northwestern of Milwaukee. Guy Taylor has invented a new recoil pad for the butt end of a kicking gun, and is going to get it patented if it fills the bill. It fits on the gun and blows up like a bicycle tire. The shooter can have it hard or soft to suit. In the report of the county board proceedings last week it appeared that Capt. Foster had been appointed to measure grades for the county in place of Surveyor Tellier. It should have read that he would act in the absence of the county surveyor. A man named E. W. Hammond was arrested at EsthervJlle, charged with breaking into the Peterson store at Swea City. Monday he was brought to Algona and waived examination in Squire drake's court, He is in jail awaiting the grand jury. John G. Smith was called over to Wesley, Wednesday, to welcome a little grand daughter, and hear himself called "grandpa" for the first time. Mrs. Jones and the baby are well, while Chas. E. is said to have put grain up five cents a bushel the first day. Tonight the Tremaine lecture at the opera house will be on Switzerland and Germany. Every night thus far has seen a larger audience, and the course grows in interest. We commend the lecture tonight to everybody, It will well repay the cost and trouble. John Walker has been carrying his arm in a sling since the Fourth. He held a Roman candle in it, and three of the balls went out of the right end, The others, however, took the back track and left' a bad burn in the palm of his hand before he could drop it. His hand will not be disfigured, Ambrose A. Call, in a note in the Courier, recalls that it was exactly 43 years ago, July 9, 'that be and his brother landed in Algona.- Algona is therefore 4S years of age, The settlement made then by the judge and Ambrose was over near the Qhubb farm, They came to the present town site later, Presiding Elder Tetter has the programs out for the 43rd conference of the Algona district, which is to be held at Buffalo Center, Aug. 23-85, Rev. Southwell is to speak on class meetings now and in early ttmes, Rev, Bagnell is to discuss irreverent levity on the part of preachers. The program throughput is full pf interest.

ChiBeieJn GalifQr' njaajsd Mies Anna BawiltPB tola of ber erarfenow la teaching darkies j n Memphis, Miss HaffltltpD's' sobeol pipped J«ne 8, but sbe epenif a month p the way kg™ i y$Meg.

The north part of it will undoubtedly be condemned, as it should be. The old, original, H, A. Henderson barn of 40 years ago, is still as solid as a rock. C. M. Doxsee's father, who is hardware man at RolfOj had a big float in the Rolfe celebration procession. The Reveille says! Among the many articles on the float was a new sickle grind* ing machine that would gladden the heart of any boy who has ever turned grindstone to sharpen sickles. A. R. Doxsee was captain of the float and distributed free samples of American tin in the form of cups. The Burt Monitor says the people were a little disappointed in the fireworks last week Monday evening. It is but fair to say that the fire works were not the feature relied on for the evening celebration, but the outdoor pictures, which could not be held over till Monday. The fire works were simply to fill in. Fire works, unless very elaborately put on, are too common to be much of an attraction. Frank Nicoulln went to Estherville Monday to sell two threshing machines. Bradley & Nicoulln have a carload of tho famous Minneapolis threshers unloaded In Algona and they make a big showing. The Minneapolis is one of the best machines made as they warrant it throughout. This firm is also having abig run on Milwaukee binders. When it comes to handling grain, a call on Bradley & Nicoulin will pay all who want machinery. The announcement of E. P. Keith of Plum Creek as a candidate for the nomination for sheriff brings a strong man into the field. Mr. Keith is one of the county's very best farmers, fully fitted by business experience and natural aptitude to attend to the duties of the office, popular with everybody. If •he is nominated he will be an element of strength to the whole ticket, for no one in Kossuth is more highly esteemed by all who know him. Last Thursday Barnet Devino's son- in-law overtook a man south of Algona in the road walking north. He did not turn out and appeared dazed. He was unable to talk. Loading him into the wagon he was brought to town where he lay in a stupor till sun down when he revived enough to toll that he lived in Dallas county. He had money and was shipped on the train. He was evidently overcome by the heat, going north into Minnesota. He was cared for here at Norton & Peterson's. 'Squire Clarke set four tramps to work on the street last week. One of them said on the stand that he was looking for work. "Look me in the eye," -the justice said. After some twisting and wriggling the wanderer was able to get his eyes up. "Now tell me the truth, have you done a day's work in the past two years?" "No, I haven't," was the honest reply. "Then you won't have to complain of lack of a chance for the next ten days." And the sentence was promptly entered on the books. , FRUIT to put in the fruit jars at GKOVE & SON'S. Cash Grocery. We are still making low prices on groceries. A nice bulk cofc fee at 140 a pound.
