The school mams come next Monday The city well is down 622 feet in rock. Kossuth cast 60 gold-democratic votes last fall. Grant Hawkins has been appointed postmaster at Wapello. * A genial shower yesterday did good The hay makers didn't like it. A lot of Algonians are going to Emmetsburg, Friday, for the great circus Miss Jennie Pettibone went to Ban croft lust week and assisted in the post office. The Tremaine lectures closed Satur day. Big houses were present all the week. E. S. Johnson is having considerable trouble with the eye he hurt a few weeks ago. Today is Gen. Alger day at Spiri. Lake. A round trip rate of $L90 was given from Algona. Schu & Waterhouse are turning om 40,000 cigars a month and can't gel ahead of the demand. The opera house company has a let ter from Keene, who may come to Algona again this winter. Corn will be the best crop yet, If the stand was uniform this would be a record-breaking season. The Kossuth County State bank statement this week shows that healthy condition exists. The new Nelson home over north on Park avenue is one of the handsomest of Algona's new buildings. Barnum & Bailey's circus will visit Algona this season if. Charley Winkle is not misinformed by the Standard Oil company. Geo. Bailey has been a splendid clerk in B, P. Grose's absence but he ought to explain why the marriage licenses all have stopped. Fred Gilbert of Spirit Lake will shoot for the Dupont cup again with Heikes of Dayton, Ohio, who won it from him, The date is not yet fixed, The Odd Fellows have changed then meeting Bight from Monday to' Saturday night. The country members will be accommodated by the change. W. W. Cook at Bancroft has patented a new school desk. The Registei says it keeps students from getting round shouldered and chewing gum. The clown in the circus parade got a joke on G. H. Lamson. Mr. Lamson was part of the city police and made a valiant attempt to arrest "the drunk man." Next Tuesday evening comes the opening entertainment of the institute course. Everybody should, go. It is free to all and will be well worth the trouble, JohannaHeyen frow near Bancroft was taken to the asylum at Independence by Marshal Whelan and wife of Bancroft. She suffered s, sunstroke some years ago, A popular excursion to Spirit Lake leaves Algona at 7:50 o'clock Sunday morning, and leases the lake at 7:30 jo the evening, the round trip fare being $1,40. This is very cheap; Some Emmetsburg lawyers will have a bearing befpre Judge QuwtQn,' MPS day, in t&e JQrybread ease., In this in Bt&wge there are several thousands of dollars gt stake.

A man condemned to some days in iail by 'Squire Clarke Wanted to escape the officers long enough to attend the circus, and kept hidden two hours Moh' lay noon, But Mark Boyle found him before he got to the big tent. br, Morse is the first in Algona to try the gasolene lighting system. He Is putting it into his house attd will have it in operation before long. It is cheap and the light is mild but brilliant. Up to date there is no reason to believe that it is not the best house light discovered. Nothing was done to take Algona into the new Knights of Pythias district organized at Nora Springs. LeoPeug* net, Frank Dingley and Guy Taylor went over but the territory included lies too far east. A new district will will have to be gotten up for these western counties. The city bought four inch water pipe for the eight blocks to the ceme tery and to the new school house, with hydrants and all the fixtures, for $686. The pipe is of the best quality and the price is considered very cheap. It will be in town this week and the work of laying it will begin at once. Peter J. Walker drove up to Iowa lake last week. He says one-third of the grain to Armstrong is barley, all fine. From there north on the Larrabee lands wheat and oats prevail, also good. Flax is a failure. He says that most of it won't pay for cutting, Corn looks well, better north than south, Fred Corey was over from Wesley, Monday, trying to arrange for his five- mile horse race for the county fair. There will be ten horses on a side, each going half a mile, the riderchanging at each stop. It would be an exciting race. He also challenges any bicycle rider to go five miles against his pony for a reasonable purse, Some of our bicycle experts ought to bo able to beat the pony. There is but one Algona in the United States, the Bancroft Register finds. Five Burts are given, fifteen Arm strongs, six Germanias, three Led- yards, fifteen Senecas, three German Valleys, two Whittemores, and three LuVernes, while Swea City shares with Algona the distinction of being the only town of that name known tc the postal authorities. There are thirteen other Bancrofts. Henry Johnson, who married J. L. LaPlant's daughter recently, is holding Adventist tent meetings at Clear Lake. Last Sunday evening Rev. T. Dewitt Talmadge, who spoke in the big tent in the morning, attended the Ad- venttst meeting and listened attentively to our preacher. E. W. Good ner was. present and says that TaL madge stayed an hour after services were over and visited with the brethren. County Attorney Raymond has his argument ready in the famous Wesley dog case and will soon forward it to Des Moines. He has gone into the history and law of the dog question and is more than ever convinced that a dog could be stolen before the new statute was adopted. His argument is very clear and complete and the opposing lawyers will have Jsome- thing to do to show that it is not wel" founded. The Farmers'. Tribune sends out in pamphlet form a series of articles written by O. O. Bracke of Germania, entitled "Religion and Politics." The aim is to discredit our present financial policy, and the foundation of the argument is the idea that prices of everything depend upon the actual numbei of dollars in circulation. Thus " plenty of money" would mean general prosperity. A great many excellent things are said in this pamphlet on a variety ol topics, but this central idea will nol stand even a superficial examination, The city council is considering a proposal to close the diagonal street to the Milwaukee depot for two blocks from State street north, practically to the Northwestern crossing. This would square up some fine blocks and would not inconvenience travel to town. The block owners will pay liberally for the diagonal ground by which the city would be gainer. THE UPPER DBS MOINEL is inclined to believe that the looks of the town would be improved by the change. Our main street into town ought not to run through a lot ol back yards. Geo. F. .Hackman announces himself this . week as a candidate for sheriff. He has been over the county a little makingjthe acquaintance of republicans and finds enough encouragement to warrant him in entering the race, George is a son of one of the pioneers, was born and raised in Cresco, and is one of the vigorous, active, and rising young men of Kossuth, If Georg* should be nominated the office woulc come into worthy hands and be well ad ministered. We commend his candidacy to the careful consideration of the convention, The Hummel, Hamilton & Sells oir* cus would be a good one if condensed into a one ring, 25 cent show. But spread out over two rings at 50 cents it is out of its class. A big crowd came to town Monday for it, but not a great many filtered into the tent when the price was known. The show had ev'J' dently been in hard luck before for just as the parade was ready to start the help demanded their pay which de» Jayed things considerably, Tbere^ oeipts here would not pay expenses, Hummel was one of the proprietors of the old Orton circus Geo. E. Clarke lavved it over and took an elephant for his fee. The mention that is being made of Horace Mann as a possible candidate for the legislature makes his vlew%on the existing political contest of special interest, and in our next issue we shall publish an interview with hlw, m. Mann left the republican^ party with the other sUyerlteB, but Instead ofb> eaming a." silver republican," he became a. democrat, which Is very to out ipme figure in politics, He does sol feelleve « t — . ~.~Jgi w the ftflvasoe W new m^yejaeat p^g, pyojnerity, feu J gja$ tf will undoubtedly set the pace for the ocal democratic campaign. We commend his views to the careful consideration of the voters of the county. Clarke & Cohenour are asking the supreme court for a new trial in the case of Lacy vs. Church. Matty years ago, when J. F. Lacy had a livery itt Algona, Mr. Church overdrove a teatn and killed one horse. Mr. Lacy sued Eor $120, got a default* amended his petition to $150, and took judgment. Church kicked ofl this extra $30 and the matter got into tha supreme court, fhe point is this: Lacy remitted the extra $30 and wants the judgment to stand at $120. Church says now that tacking on the extra amount vitiated the whole judgment and he wants it set aside and a new hearing ordered. A funny thing happened at one of the Sunday schools, Sunday morning, For some weeks some one class has oh each Monday gathered a lot of flowers, which the express campanies have been carrying to the Chicago hospitals free. Last Monday the lot fell to a class of boys. As soon as it was an nounced they began to look at each other and finally one of them put himself into communication with the teacher, the result being that the school was informed that they would be unable to act because Monday was circus day. At first the teachers tried to frown, but a general laugh finally went the rounds. JOHN Q, SMITH COMMENDED. Ills Efforts to Protect Game Have Had Good Results. The Bancroft Register comments on the appointment of J. C. Stahl as deputy game warden, recommended by John G. Smith, and says: "This section has long been a favorite haunt of the pot hunters and violators of the fish and game laws, and Mr. Smith's efforts to have the unlawful slaughter stopped will be appreciated by all true sportsmen. An old thoroughbred trapper and hunter himself, Mr. Stahl is the u right person to promptly overhaul all violators and see that the law is enforced. fctfY GROCERIES AT THE.., Cash Grocery. 12 bars wrapped laundry soap for 2§c; lo pounds best foiled oats 2§c; California-canned peaches* plums, and apricots ioc a can, Try them.

Humphrey Appoints Him Keel- mental Inspector of Small Arms Practice. What was rumored some weeks ago is now announced. Col. Humphrey puts Will F. Smith of Wehster City at the head of the small arms practice of the Fourth regiment. The choice is a good one. Mr. Smith is popular with the guardsmen, is a crack shot himself, and is devoted to the work. Company F will join in congratulations. A rOBQEB OAUQHT. The Real Purpose of Sheriff Samson's California Trip—John Clrte- soua In Jail. Sheriff Samson and the California party consisting of B. F. Crose, Mrs. Grose and Mrs. Samson returned from California yesterday. The real purpose of the trip was to capture one John Cirksena, who left the vicinity of Bancroft lately charged with forgery, some $200 being involved. He was located 14 miles from Los Angeles on a fruit farm, and was brought home and is now in jail. The party had a pleasant trip over, went by boat from San Francisco to Los Angles, caught a 300 pound fish on the way, and took the Santa Fe road home covering 800 miles in a hot wind or simoon. They say the mercury stood at 150 degrees out doors, and they kept the car shut tight to prevent roasting. They say they wouldn't take 100 miles square on the way as a gift and live on it. They did not fall in love with any country west of the Missouri and were glad to get back to Iowa. Excursion to Spirit Lake. On Sunday, July 25, there will be a popular cheap excursion to Spirit and Okoboji lakes via the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway. On that day there will be a grand musical entertainment by the Smalley Grand Concert company of Chicago, the Ladies' Cornet band, fifteen pieces, of Rock Valley, and the'Grieg Norwegian chorus of 18 voices of Canton in the pavilion at Arnold's park. These are three of the best musical organizations in the country, and the management guarantees a strictly high-class entertainment which no music lover should miss, For the above occasion the C., M. & St. P.
