D. of Chicago, will-occupy the pulpit at the Congregational church next Sunday morning and evening. Markets are fluctuating so from day to day that local prices aro uncertain. Flax'is at $1, wheat 80 cents or more, oats 15, corn 18 or more. J. J. Ryan is about Algona. Can it be that he thinks there is a chance? If James wants to be tho legislative nominee we are for him.

The " Old Madrid" company has some splendid paper for its entertainment at the opera house Tuesday evening. It is commended and will be a fine entertainment three outside bands together, and the loss won't detract any from the musical features of the day. Nothing definite has yet been done about selling the diagonal street across the two blocks southwest of the Northwestern track. An offer, we understand, will be submitted at the next council meeting. Work has begun on the new six-foot walk to the Northwestern depot. It is a question what to do with the Northwestern hotel, which stands in the street. It looks as though the city would order it moved. The big Grimm-Gilbert shooting contest comes at the fair grounds tomorrow afternoon soon after dinner. It will attract a crowd of gun lovers. These two have never met in a single- handed contest and it is a toss-up which will win. The state railway commissioners were up looking over the crossing south of Ledyard yesterday. S. D.

Hamilton has been busy lately working out the sewer problem. Ho has been getting adjacent property owners to agree to tap the sewer if it is extended, and now has nearly enough subscribed to make the extension to tho river. It is altogether likely that the next city council meeting will see tho sewer matter settled on tho north side. Some weeks ago wo noted that Prof. Lilly was competing in the Century's guessing contest, in which some big prizes are to be awarded to those who answer difficult scientific and historical questions most correctly. He has received word that ho comes in the first 100, and probably will rank with the leaders. He stands a show for a considerable prize. Bishop Walden lectured Saturday evening on Africa and preached Sunday morning, going to Burt in the evening. He is a plain, vigorous, fighting Methodist. He is not as eloquent as many of the bishops, but is a worker, and he is a Methodist first and all the time, Missionary work is his special charge, and ho says tho best mission field now open is among the Africans. Charles Wernert had the bridge over Lotts Creek west of Livermore go down under eight head of cattle one day last week. One was killed and tho rest were injured. Mr. Wernert noticed that the bridge was unsteady as the cattle went onto it, and was careful to stay off, intending to wait till after tho cattle had crossed, and it is fortunate that he did so. The county will doubtless make his loss good. The teachers' institute closed Friday with a total enrollment of 315. Nothing new is to be said of it. It broke all records in these parts, and reflects great credit on Supt. Reed. The closing public lecture was Prof. French's chalk talk. He spoko afternoon and evening Thursday to crowded houses. The teachers have all been enthusiastic in their studies and the examinations show the good results. Talk has again began of Mayor Chris- chilles and E. J. Murtagh as legislative candidates on the democratic ticket. J. M. Farley has been slated for the place, but it seems that some of the democrats are tired of voting for men with "republican" tacked on them, even silver-republican. Both Mr. Chrischilles and Mr. Murtagh say they will not take a nomination, but it is not in the American heart to really refuse such an honor. Either one would do Kossuth credit at Des Moines.

A Largo Gathering to Honor the Memory of n Well Known Citizen, Tho rumor of Hugh Black's sudden death, which came in last Wednesday as this paper was going to press, proved to bo true. The funeral was hold at tho home Friday afternoon, and was attended by a very largo concourse of old- time friends and neighbors.. Mr. Black's only sister, Mrs. Paul, camo with her son from Milton Junction, Wis. and Mrs. Black's two brothers from the same place were also present. Rev. Buchanan of tho Rrosbyterian church preached a brief discourse, and tho remains were brought to the Algona cemetery. Mr. Black was 52 years of age, and was born in Ireland, his father a Scotchman, and his mother an Irish woman. The family camo to this country about 40 years ago, when ho was a boy, and he grew up in the same neighborhood with tho Galbraith family. He came to Kossuth county in 1872. He was married about 19 years ago, and three children with Mrs. Black survive, a daughter 17 years of age and two younger sons. Mr. Black was a hard working, careful and successful business man. His farm was a model of neatness, and prosperity had rewarded his efforts. Ho was esteemed by all who know him and his untimely death has caused sincere sorrow in many hearts. Nothing is known more about the accident that befell him than was announced at first. Ho was raking hay with a team that had run away several times. It is thought that a bolt broke and tho seat he was on foil forward, pitching him into the horses'heels, A kick on tho head caused instantaneous death, probably, for tho team was seen as itcame running in, and before any Good Goods.

The twa Some 25 years ago Bishop Walden, not then a bishop, came to Algona with Bishop Haven to hold the first conference Algona ever had. Sunday was his first visit since that time and he had forgotten all about it.
