The Providence smiled on the county fair this yenr, and four of the finest fall days, such days as are known only to Iowa, fell to its lot. Tho attendance on tho second day hroke tho record.

McKay of the state agricultural college dairy school came up to judge the butter. There wore 12 jars from as many creameries in the county, and four jars of dairy butter. Tho ice chest matte to hold it did not partments were well represented and handsome, while In the educational department some very excellent work was shown. Worthy of special mention here was a case of samples of 00 varieties of native wood, prepared by Miss Jessie Newcomb's Irvington school. Tho ITnlr In Uctiei-nl. The stock judge was Mr. Woleholl of Dos Moines. Ho said ho had attended seven fairs and had seen none as good as Kossuth's. Ho made a collection of fruit and vegetables and took them home. A Chicago agricultural paper man said It was an astonishing exhibit. Ho took a big collection to the Chicago pure food show. Prof. McKay expressed the same flattering opinion. Everybody says It was the best fair that koHs'uth 'has had and that moans that It is us good as tho best. Here's hoping for four good days in 1898. JUST EEOEIVEB-A N OF' FANCY DISHES 'V# < '*a> a still and a fow LOOAL NEWS BRIEFS. Horseless Cnrrlnjjo nt tlio ITiUr. The horseless carriage at tho fall- was in hard luck. Their batteries were played out when they got hero, and had' to bo sent to Britt to bo recharged. Ono of tho managers went with them, and when ho got back Thursday morning it was discovered that there was still something wrong, and tho carriage did very little more than to stand on tho grounds N each day to bo inspected by many of the curious. Only short runs were made, and then only a speed of four or live miles an hour could bo attained. When in perfect working order it was given out that tho wagon could run 15 miles an hour. In many respects tho attraction, as such, was not a success. Tho crowd wanted to see tho machine in operation, but fov tho most part tho people wore disappointed. HOI-HO TrntlcrM lluvo a Scrap. Two horso-tradlng outfits got Into a fight outside fair grounds last Wednesday, during which ono hobo pulled^a •ovolver and shot sovoral times. To lis poor marksmanship must bo attributed his failure to hit more than once, ind that only caused an abrasion of tho cuticlo. Justice Clarke's decision in tho case replenished tho school fund by several dollars, and landed tho hobo in In French, German, and • Austrian China. Als a complete line of water and lemonade sets..

Hanna of tho Whittemoro creamery, undE. A. Bacon of the German Valley creamery each 90. Then he tested these to decide which should have second money and gavo it to Mr. Hanna. The first premium was §10 and tho Spurbeck Ac Lambert prize, the second $5 and the prize offered by this firm. Following were tho competitors with their mark ings: Aug. Nuvell, Hobart, 97; G.

The Storzbach & Cady orchestra has reorganized for work during tho coming winter and will soon be prepared for business.

W. Cady, cornet; Albert Krumra, double bass. MartMcCall may accompany tho orchestra on some of its trips with his harp, upon which ho has already become quite proficient as a player. A. W Sterzbach will bo tho manager, and the route for the winter will soon bo laid out. Algona boasts ono of tho best orchestras in the stale. City Water Supply. The city pump is winning almost continuously' now in order to supply tho needs of tho town. Tho well recently sunk to a depth of 600 foot proves on testing to bo inefficient and can bo exhausted in ISO minutes. Tho city fathers are preparing to got the machinery at work soon for sinking it to a depth sufficient for a good water supply, as the expense already incurred IB as good as wasted unless a bettor vein of water is reached. From what is known of the formation it is predicted that plenty of water will be found at a depth of M)0 feet. Tho Wheel Mot 111 It.
