They Will Become Features During the Last Three Days, and Will Be Drawing Cards. ' The Clay Clement threatrical company was compelled to change its date from Sept, 11 to Oct. 3, and that date was taken by the county fair company, the Woodards. "Clay Clement conse- I quently will not be seen in Algona this fall probably. He is having a big run at McVicker's in Chicago. The talk is still that Mayor Chris- chilles will be nominated for the legislature. The democrats think that as long as they are to cast all of the^otes they might as well have the candidate. But the silver republicans are wily and well trained in politics. They are few in numbers, but wise in counsel. Miss Hulda Frances Peters, the recent graduate from the Illinois school for the blind, will give a musical recital at the Congregational church, Sept. 14, assisted by Prof. Ford and Miss Kate Smith. Miss Peters is an accomplished pianist, and the recital will be a musical event in Algona. A full program will be published next week. The Congregational church steeple has caught the lightning again, The bolt hit it Saturday morning and besides knocking out one panel, demolished the interior wood work considerably. Shingles were thrown on D. S. Ford's barn and plentifully sprinkled over his yard. Everybody in that part of town thought he had been hit himself. J. A. T. Ambrose of Forest City had charge of the barbecue last week, but the failure of the roast was not due to him. The ox came in six hours late, the wood was late, and the meat had to be taken out too soon.

Vincent Bros, lost five steers by lightning Friday night. They were in the open pasture south of Hobart, and the bolt besides killing them made a six inch hole in the ground. Seven were knocked down, but two were able to get up again. They were steers just bought by the Vincents to feed and were insured, but the appraisers have valued them at less than they actually cost in cash, In order to get Haney of Des Moines to run against Eugene Tellier a two- mile race, the latter had to promise to let him catch his wind on the back stretch each time. Then on the home spurt he ran away from our local racer. Mr Tellier can make the two miles in 14 minutes, which is considerably faster than it was run in the race. If he had kept his regular gait Haney would have dropped out. Fora veteran of the war Mr. Tellier is a remarkably well preserved man. United States Immigration Inspector H 0. Bradsby of Chicago, has been in' Algona two days looking up the Kruerer case, He finds that the old gentleman and lady in the poor house were shipped into this county by fraud, but that passing them by the United States officer at Boston probably relieves the company of liability.

Walters of Algona Gets a Bride Under Difficulties. Geo. Walters brough a bride to Algona with him Friday and is visiting at the Milt Walters' home for a couple of weeks. The story of the marriage is romantic, and as told in the dailies has a lot of extra features, that lack in the essential element of being true. For instance the mother of the bride is said to be heartbroken, when in fact she not only consented to the match, but discussed seriously attending the ceremony. Another is that advantage was taken of the father's absence, when in fact the day had been set some time in advance and it only happened that on that day he was away from home. George was married Wednesday at Spirit Lake and will soon go back to Milford to take his old position in the Miller harness shop, George is an expert workman, a steady and thrifty boy, and many friends here will admire his nerve in securing a charming and worthy girl fora bride.
