THE LOCAL FIELD. All That their Name implies Corsets The Wetmore Truss. THIS TRUSS MURDERS Mel I WEAR THE WSTMORB TRUSS A truss embodying the sym- plicity and durability of all other trusses, and yet unlike any of them. The most simple truss ever made. Is practically indestructible—wears forever. Made on strictly hygienic principles- no cumbersome springs to pass around the body. It gives perfect freedom of action without the slightest movement of the truss. Does not take one-half the pressure to hold the rupture that the old styles take. Holds the rupture easily, yet firmly and SU "^S«S« y etp^uce f . Dr. Sheetz steadily improves. All the caucus calls appear this week. All of the institute entertainments are free to all. Earl Tennant is home from a vacation at Okoboji. Carl Wauge has added a second chair to his barber shop. Heavy and refreshing showers have fallen the past week. Tho Algona district Methodist conference comes at Buffalo Center, Aug. 23. THE UPPER DES MOINES has another five-pointed star. Hobart sends in this one. The Redmen's field day program will give sport lovers a great treat in a cou- ole of weeks or so. A small audience was out for the magniscopo entertainment last night. It was interesting. The Seastream home on State street and the Jos. Thompson! home on Call street are newly painted. The word from Pat Kain is that he gains slowly. He will not come home from the sanitarium for several weeks. Dr. Morse talked to the teachers one morning the past week on appendicitis and Dr. Kenefick another on contagious diseases. Rev. O. W. Bond will occupy the Baptist pulpit next Sunday evening. Rev. Southwell changes with him Sunday afternoon. John Haines says ho has the biggest corn in Kossuth. A six-foot man cant reach the top of it and ears are now nine inches long. The Epworth league social last evening drew a great crowd. It was a success as a supper and a success as an entertainment. Kossuth gets back an old resident. Mr. Lattimore, who went to New Whatcom, Wash., is again here. He says Iowa is good enough for him. The town of Hanna, downin^the southeast corner of the county, is to have a full fledged elevator. The town of Galbraith will have to keep moving. J. D. Shadle has moved into his new home, and C. O. Simpson has moved into the one ho vacates. Chas. Walker has moved into the S. H. Pettibone house. Dr Hallock, who speaks tomorrow evening on Uncle Sam, is one of the leading religious newspaper men of the United States. He will be well worth hearing. Henry Walston has the foundation in for a new house where his old one stood. He will make a fine improvement on the lots he has resided on so many years. J. A. Brownell says that boy looked iust as fine as he expected he would. Both he and Mrs. Brownell are in excellent health. The rumors about Algona's pop fac- 18 as expert at base ball as his brother is at A. O. U. W. field day sports, and helped the boys out on third base. C. J. Lenander of Bancroft eays Ms ditches made with a road grader are a great success. Next season he will put in 600 rods with a grader. He makes a fairly wide and dishing runway for the water. It grasses over and does not fill up. Everybody speaks of Algona's handsome door yards. One of the handsomest is Alpheus Johnson's over near the Free Methodist church. Whoever is responsible for the arrangement and care of the lawn is a landscape artist. It is a pleasant spot to look at in driving by. State Auditor McCarthy has notified Auditor Calkins that the Kossuth real estate leyy has been raised seven per cent by the state board of equnlization. This means about 50 cents an acre, and will make the average assessment about $7 an acre. It Increases the total assessment $300,000. The Northwestern has a new time card this week. The chief change is in the morning train south, which leaves at 7:07 o'clock Instead of 8 o'clock as before. The two passengers meet at Algona now. The other changes are noted in the time card at the head of this column. Rev. S. H. Taft, the pioneer of Humboldt, visited at Nathan Mann's last night and came up to Algona this morning.

The proprietor is on the grounds and will soon have his factory in running order. Leroy Barton is home from a cattle buying trip out in Dakota. He found feeders very high there. He and Supervisor Barton had better luck pulling fish out up at the lakes. A little girl at the Frank Stacy home Monday brought sunshine, and broke the spring record for boys. She will have a monopoly of attention when the 1897 class gets together. Marriage licenses have been issued toHerrvE. Brown and Rebecca Finnell,'Frank Skilling and Kate Loss. July has only five licenses, J. L. Donahoo talks of going to Alaska next spring. A man from his town in California brought back $150,°0° in gold. Dr. Bayers and Jos.

FRED THORN. J, : Doxsee, Office in Gep.O.OftUButUUog. PRE8TQN, Eye, Ear, Hose and Threat Galbraith is getting somest line of new fall dress goods he has ever shown. The stock is arriving already. The fall styles are handsome and prices are very low. Bishop Walden of the Methodist church is to be at Buffalo Center meeting of the Algona district and will preach in Aug. 22. He is one the church. Farmers who want windmill power will do well to investigate the gasoline engine Bradley & Nicoulin are selling. Gasoline is the cheapest power there is and is easily handled. It is almost cheaper than wind and ten times as reliable. Company F went to camp this morning by way of Ruthven. Dr. Morse was accompanied by Mrs. Morse and Mrs. Geo. L. Galbraith, who will en- military camp life. Dr. Walters is assistant surgeon, Dave Miller hospital steward. „, Lee Reed was at Webster City for the races and says that GUdersleeve braced up on one mile race and won first money He and Charley Smith's horses have been doing good work since! They are in the central part of the state. One of the hall players last Friday was Harry Jenklnson^ who with Will Huntley fiadcomefroii Viola, HI., P* a WcJcleT He. is a vounger brother of Frank and 18 P» W B months' visit In "California. Fred, his son, is doing well. Ho left Mrs. Taft there. In spite of his many years Rev. Taft is as young and active as over. The latest report is that Miss Campbell, Algona's popular school teacher, lived six hours after submitting to a surgical operation. Miss Campbell will be remembered as the teacher who had $45 stolen from her cloak in the school cloak room. The money was never recovered nor the thief caught. The opera, "Cinderella and the Glass Slipper,'' will be given at tho opera house Aug, 20-21, under the auspices of the W. C. T. U. This opera is written and arranged by Prof. Alexander Ball, who will be here to give tho play his personal supervision. His reputation is well established. About 100 children will take part. M. Stephens was crowded off the bridge over the creek west of the Jones & Stacy mill, while walking by a wagon that stood on it, and in falling broke his right arm close to the wrist joint. He may. have a stiffened joint, but his many friends—and Marsh has many—will hope to see him come out with as supple a wrist as ever. Chas. E. Cohenour was in Brltt last week in one of the most sensational cases ever tried over in Hancock. A leading society and church lady ol Hutchins had her husband arrested charged with all manner of wickedness Charley defended and the man was dismissed. A divorce case is also to be tried in which Clarke & Cohenour will also defend. Report comes from Omaha that the monkey in the Hamilton circus, that was lately in Algona, tickled the elephant's foot there Saturday. The elephant got mad and broke loose, turning over the lion cage. The lions got out and scared the elk, which broke out into the street and started up town. For once the show in their tents was fully worth the price of admission. THE UPPER DES MOINES two weeks ago gave a shooting record made by Will F. Smith as the crack record of tho Fourth regiment. But it was mistaken. Seargt. Walsh of Company F beats it. Smith made 188 out of a possible 225, while Walsh's is 192. Walsh made 62 at 200 yards, 64 at 300 yards, and 06 at 500 yards, 75 being the limit at each range. We still bet our money on Walsh. Auction sales have been a little quiet of late, but they seem to be picking up again. D. A. Haggard informs us that he has a sale over in Emmet county a week from next Saturday, the 14th, at which he will dispose of several head of horses, mules, some good cattle, and a lot of farm machinery. Mr. Haggard is still in the push, and has the reputation of getting top prices for everything he puts under the hammer. The closing program of the normal school attracted a big audience. The church had been beautifully decorated, the music was excellent, and the exercises were not too lengthy. Miss Lizzie Ricker's oration was delivered in a free and natural manner and showed careful preparation. On account of sickness F. H. Carpenter of Livermore was unable to appear, the quartette appeared as a trio, and his oration had to be omitted. About 40 people in the vicinity of Hobart made a sudden appearance at the home of Nate Robinson Saturday evening about dusk. They came with Ice cream and cake and violins, which made music for the dancers until 12 o'clock when refreshments were served, and later a large arm chair was presented to him, the occasion being a birthday surprise. A pleasant evening was enjoyed by all. Vocal and instrumental music took up the time, with quiet chats, until 3 when the company dispersed with many wishes for many happy returns of Aug. 1. Miss Huldah F. Peters came to Algona Saturday to remain with her mother, Mrs. Ernest Thiel. Miss Peters_i8 a recent graduate from the Illinois institution for the blind at Jacksonville, and is a very accomplished musician. She is the first graduate of that school to give a public recital in Jacksonville and the local papers speak in high praise of her tal9nt, while the program is made up of classical selections from ,he greatest of the masters. Miss Peters hopes to secure scholars in Alrona, and her talent as well as the mis- ? ortune of being blind will give her immediate introduction. The public library has a lot of desirable new books. Mr, McElroy has list this week from will not return, tain. Geo. E. Clarke and Judge Quarton are taking a lake trip from Chicago to Duluth on tho strength of their gold mine pros- )OCtS. Mrs. S. B.
