Most of our better grades of goods we have bought in Single Dress Patterns, so somebody will not have a dress "just like In connection with the call for the coming county convention, County Chairman Wadsworth has, in concert with the committee appointed, proposed the following plan for holding the new primary election: In pursuance of the resolution passed at the recent county convention the following rules and regulations have been adopted for holding primary elections in tho various voting precincts of the county, for the purpose of selecting delegates to tho coming county convention. Tho resolution referred to expressly provides that in precincts where delegates have already been chosen these regulations shall not apply. They are adopted temporarily for this convention. The committee appointed to prepare a permanent plan for holding primary elections will report to tho convention, and it will then make such changes and additions for tho future as it sees fit. In case any of tho following regulations are not fully understood by the committemen of the various precincts, the chairman of the county committee will make them more explicit: I. The county committeeman named at the recent convention shall in each voting precinct have charge of tho primary election. In case of his absence at the time set those present shall appoint a chairman. The chairman shall select two assistants to act as clerks and tellers. He shall give out tho tickets, keep a record of the names of all voting, preserve the ballots and return them to tho convention for reference in case of contest, decide all challenges and keep a record of them. He shall certify to the convention the names of those elected as delegates. II. Voters at the coming primaries shall be all residents of the precinct who voted the republican ticket at the last general election, all who intend to vote tho republican ticket at tho coming general election, all residents of the precinct who are known to be republicans, but who wore absent at the last or preceding elections, all naturalized citizens and minors who will bo voters by November 2, and who intend Don't Go to Alaska, se- yours."

The following telegram was received by Mai'shtil Koran Monday: WHITING, Indiana: Man named Henry Brewster living four miles east of Algona fell off Lake Shore train this afternoon. Not serious, but out of his mind. Answer if known there. CLAY COLLINS, Marshal. It appears that Mr. Brewslor had been acting oddly hero lately. Agent Hodrlck persuaded him not to go on tho early train, and came near not allowing him to go at all. He was too old for such a trip alone. Last evening S. Benjamin got the following in response to a telegram: WHITING, IND., Aug. 20.—Mr. S. Benjamin—Dear Sir: Yesterday afternoon about 3 o'clock two men working 1 at tho Hammond waterworks station found an old man lying by tho side of tho track in an unconscious condition. They notified the police of Robertsdale and, as thoro is no doctor in that town, they brought him hero. Tho doctor said tho man's left arm was broken at the elbow and that ho had sustained injuries about the head that might prove serious. The man had no coat or vest on, but had a hat with a G. A. B. badge. Thoro wore throe excursion trains through hero yesterday and we concluded that ho fell from one. There was a small blue check In his pocket with "C. J. Brown, transfer. Good for one faro. Algona, Iowa," Ho has not regained consciousness yet, and tho doctor says he will have to bo removed to tho hospital in Chicago tonight as ho is in a very bad condition. When asked, he always answered that his name was Henry Brewstor, and kept asking if Benjamin had como yet, but we did not know who he meant. CLAY COLLINS, Marshal.

PRESTON, Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat to vote the republican ticket. III. Any person present may challenge the right of anyone offering to vote, in which case the chairman shall decide, keeping a record of challenges and of tho statement made by the voter challenged, all to be forwarded to tho convention with the ballots and other records of the primary. IV. The county central committee shall furnish all ballots. They will contain blank lines on which the voters will write the names of delegates to the county convention they wish to vote for. They will contain the names of all known candidates to the county offices, arranged in alphabetical order, under proper headings, with blank lines for additional names. Opposite each name will be a square, as on the Australian ballot, and voters will signify their choice by marking in the square opposite tho name of the man they wish to vote for. In case they wish to vote for someone not in the printed list they will write the name on a blank line, and mark in the square opposite the name so written. The votes for candidates shall bo counted by the chairman of the meeting and shall be announced, and the results shall be considered as instructions to the delegates chosen to attend the county convention. V. All candidates for county office shall notify the chairman of the county central committee of such candidacy before Sept. 1, if they desire to have their names printed on the ballots. VI. No other ballots than those sent out by the chairman of the central committee and given out at the polls by the chairman of the precinct primary shall be used. In case other than official ballots are used they will not be included in the official count. VII. In case any person desires to appeal from any decision of tho chairman of a precinct primary, either as to the right to vote, as to count, etc., he shall appear before the committee on credentials of the county convention whose duty it shall be to investigate fully and report to the convention tor final action. VIII. All nominations for the offices to be filled shall bo made by a majority vote of the delegates present at the county convention. In case no candidate has a majority of the delegates instructed for him the convention shall ballot until a nomination is made, delegates using their own judgment in voting, after having shown a reasonable deference to the wishes of their respective precincts.- It will be seen from these rules that candidates for office must secure a majority of the delegates and not merely a majority of the bulk vote at the primaries. This secures to each precinct its full representation, whether tho attendance at the primary be large or small, and prevents one locality from exercising an undue and preponderating influence. J. W. WADSWORTH, Chairman County Central Com. Tho Wosloy Methodists Will Make Sunday Next Memorable 111 Tholr Church History. WESLEY Iowa, Aug. 23.—-Next Sunday the Methodist church will be dedicated by B. I. Ives of Auburn, N. Y., tho world's renowned church dedicator. Services will begin at 10:30 a. m. with sermon by Rev. B. I. Ives D. D., after which the dedicatory service will take place. Everybody is cordially invited to be present and hear Doctor Ives preach, and also see how neat and artistic the church is. It has been remodeled in such a manner that any town of this size can fool proud of it. No pains have been spared by tho committee to make this occasion one of the most pleasant and profitable to all that may attend. Tho old church had served its time for the past 12 years so faithfully, had at last became too small to accommodate the large congregations that would gather in from time to time, hence a larger and more commodious place of worship was demanded. An addition has boon built on the old building, on the east side, 20x28 feet, the same height of tho old room, and on tho west side 8x18 for the pulpit and choir. The partition on the east side is removed and the opening closed with large folding doors. When all is opened up it will make an auditorium room 50x40 with a seating capacity of 350. Tho bellfry was removed from the old building and a tower built from tho ground up 10x10, and finished very neatly. There are three large memorial windows put in 5x8 in sine of leaded glass, one in memory of John B. Daggett, who was well and favorably known by tho early settlers here, one by Rev. S. L. Eastman in memory of his wife, and one by Mr. Thos. Presnell in memory of his wife at tho nominal cost of $50 each. Wo hope that everybody in the vicinity of Wesley will come out Sunday morning to join with tho church people to make that day a memorable one. in Central Minnesota, which it is selling to actual settlers at from $2.50. to $3.00 per acre, on TEN YEARS' TIME.

On Wednesday, Sept. 15, the fall terra begins in all departments of the Iowa State university, and there seems to be no doubt that the substantial revival in all branches of business which has recently asserted itself will have the effect of largely increasing the attendance at that institution. During the past year there were 1,831 students at the university and 101 instructors, but the numbers will be even greater during the coming year. Though the loss of the university library was a serious one, nevertheless by no means all of the books were burned, about 15,000 volumes being stored in other buildings. To replace the most necessary of the books which were lost the regents have appropriated the sum of $7,500, which amount is now being expended. The old building is being restored and by the first of October all of the books needed by the students will be on the shelves and ready for use. It will take a long time to replace the valuable works which were consumed by the fire, but so far as the practical work of the students is concerned the effects of the fire will scarcely be felt. The new hospital is making rapid progress and will be ready for use early in the fall. In all things the university seems to be making a record for substantial progress.
