ALGONA WINS A HOT (JAMB, The Garner Hoys PJny Good Ball But JiTot Good Enough—Some Sporting Notes. Algona won the ball game from Garner Friday. Johnnie Hart threw with his usual skill, but not hard enough to keep Algona out of seven scores. Salisbury's twirlers, on the other hand, befuddled the Garner batters so that four was all they could get. A fair-sized crowd was out and enjoyed the sport. It was n good game. Tho Former Game. Garnar Signal: Wednesday last, July 21, the Algona aggregation of ball tossers came down with blood in their eyes and a veni, vidi, vici stride asmuch as to say we'll do the Garnerites up to a queen's taste this clip. But did they do it, you ask? And we answer back in thunder tones, nit. The Algonquins proved rich picking for our boys who seemed as chipper as old maids at an ice cream social, and they everlastingly wiped the earth with their adversaries. Hart, who pitched a faultless game for Garner, is a pitcher from Pitchersburg and seemed to have as many turns and twists as a school boy who has been caught eating green apples and wants to go out. It was Impossible for tho visitors to " get onto his curves." Parmloy behind tho bat could not have been improved upon and caught everything that came his way. The game was closely contested throughout and was one of tho prettiest exhibitions of the science of base ball ever given on the Garner grounds and deserved a larger crowd of spectators. Local Sporting Kotos. If Algonians will throw in enough to hire a player or two we shall have some good ball games this fall. The ball game between Algona and Burt last Wednesday was not very hot. Tho Burt boys don't train in the A class. Wesley Reporter: Will Salisbury is now a member of Wesley's base ball nine. When Will pitches there is always trouble for the opposite nine. Humboldt and Pocahontas have an inter-county bicycle championship race. It is to come off at Gilmore, Aug. 14. The winner takes a handsome medal and championship for one year. The Bode trotter, Vyzant, and his progeny, Vyzeoff, are at Columbus, Ohio. Will Rossing writes home that Vyzant 1ms made a mile in 2:16, and Vyzeoff, a two-year-old colt, in 2:32. W. W. Titus at Whittemore is a famous dog trainer. A lot of New York canines have just been sent to him to be put in trim. He is in such demand that he has contracts to train pups in 1898; WESLEY NEWS NOTES. Tho Boys Try to Enjoy n Concert Without Paying for It—Bl|j Grain Crop. WESLEY, Aug. 3.—The Lowell Lady loncert company gave an entertainment here under the auspices of the Epworth League last Friday and Saturday evening, which was by far the jest concert ever given hoi-e.

A. Gillespie, her brother. J. J. Budlong is taking- in the sights around the country near Cunby, Minn., vo will not be surprised to hear of J. J. oming back a full-fledged land agent. Last Friday evening during the oncert about 20 or more parties neaked up and peeked in the windows f the church to see what was going on. Juch actions might be in keeping for a ural district down in Arkansas, but to appen in this part of the country it ooks rather low down.

Mulcts Ilays for Seizing Team While He W«8 Peaceably Crossing a Ifleld. Judge Hatch of Whittemore finally heard the Baas-Hays controversy in Garfleld, and attorneys Raymond and McEnroe laid down the law. It was in this case that Mr. Hays and his .son seized Mr. Baas and took his team off and put it in the barn, wh,ile he was on Hays' soil. The jury found that Mr. Baas had been damaged $3$ by this summary halt and the costs oauie to $25 mpre, which majkesfcbe excursion Shot at the Kino llnuge. Down at Webster City last week a squad of Company C were practising at the rifle range. The marksman, who had been shooting at 200 yards moved back to tho 500 yard line and being foi some reason unable to see the flag at the target supposed everything was all right and the boys attending the target were in tho pit. It was Bob Dismore's turn to shoot and he leveled his rifle and fired. Geo. Wyckoff, Jr., who was among those at the target, had not yet returned to the pit, and the ball, a No. 47, struck him on the calf of the leg, boring a hole large enough to receive a man's thumb clear through the limb. The Freeman, which gives the news, says the ball barely missed the bone. The Collar Button. "The literature of the collar button is voluminous," said the middle aged jnan, "but it does not begin to equal in bulk that which was written about the simple shirt button of the days before the blessed collar button came iuto vogue. The jokes that were written about the woes of the bachelor who found his shirts without buttons or with buttons hanging only by a thread would fill barrels. In fact, the young man of today who frets over a missing collar button, which he can readily replace, should rather rejoice that he lives in this enlightened age when he doesn't have to sew York Son. his buttons on.

TO FARMERS who contemplate putting up wind mills: We can furnish you a Gasoline ngme Pumpin nearly as cheaply as a wind mill, and if you want a, grinding mill we can furnish you one as cheaply as a geared mill. It will cost you two cents an hour to run our mill; you have no tower to climb to oil it, and you do not have to wait for the wind to come up before you can pump. It requires no more attention than a wind mill, as you set it going and it will run till you shut it off. If you think it is dangerous ask the elevator and newspaper men. There is not as much danger from a gasoline engine as there is from a board falling on you from a wind mill, and this would not happen often. We make this PS a comparison between the two machines. Call and see us before you buy a geared mill or a wind mill. \ Bradley & Nicoulin. SURANGE. Also Land, Loan and Collection Business.- Offlce over Algona State Bank.

THE HORSELESS CARRIAGE. The Perfect Vehicle Will Come Into Use Slowly but Surely. A little reflection will convince any one that the use of rnotooyoles, or, in )ther words, horseless carriages, will improve the roads. General Morin of France is authority for the statement ;hat the deterioration of common roads, except that which is caused by the weather, is two-Ehirds due to the wear of horses' feet and one-third due to the ivheels of vehicles. This being the case, f the same amount as usual continue w be laid out upon the roads, and the lontinual damage decrease two-thirds, lien the amount spent will go to increased and permanent improvement, and the roads will be "as smooth as a )arn floor." There are many questions to be solved, many difficulties to be surmounted, before the unexceptionable vehicle appears. It was a long time be?ore the difficulties of making sewing machines, revolvers, repeating rifles, typewriters and typesetters were overcome. Yet, examine them! It is all plain and simple, and not at all marvelous now, and we can hardly imagine low any mechanic could spend years of >nne studying over such easy problema so it will be with, the motooyoles. The mountains of difficulty will sink into molehills, and the ingenuity displayed will be found to take the form of judicious application of ordinary mechanical appliances, approved, by the final umpire, the common sense of mankind. Those who build automobiles must not permit themselves to think that they were born with all tho carriage makers' ore inherent in them. A man maybe a first class theoretical and practical mechanic and not be able to make a ;ood vehicle to run on wheels. The perfect carriage, as we know it toda£ is foe aggregate of the years of exhaustive waj and experiment and the improvements on that experience made by 1,000 en of genius. f It the carriage builders bestow upon fce new carriage ,ftll the art axxjutredin building the old, aud the motooyok wen lewo the reason* O f the conventionalities of, the trade and adapt their S- provements to them with reference to the opinions of those who are not prejudiced against 'innovation, they will both work together in harmony and with one purpose, and, so united, they will make rapid progress in the development of the inevitable vehicle of the futura—Gassier "s Magazine.
