Larson took a vacation and visited the Sioux City Corn Palace and Barnum's show last week. He is well pleased with his trip. Rev. Phil Hanna, of Eagle Grove, was in Algona Tuesday interviewing a tailor. He says he is making preparations to fill the parsonage. We had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Geo. M. Sheetz, CityEditor of the Freeport Daily r Democrat. He has been visiting his cousin, Dr. Sheets. Ticket number 24 was the lucky card and drew the Range at Winkie Bros.' hardware store last Saturday evening. Peter Winkel held the ticket. S. I. Plumley has the contract for laying the toundation for the new Episcopal church. The contract for the carpenter work has not yet been let. Dr. Will Burnard, who was "raised" in Algona but who is now an assistant to the physician at the Independence insane asylum, was in town yesterday. Mr. A. E. Sawvel handed us a copy of the New York Herald of April 15th, 1865, containing the news of the assassination and death of Abraham Lincoln. It is an interesting document, Hon. I. L. Woods, of Ft. Dodge, was in Algona last Wednesday afternoon and evening, sizing up his chances to beat Dolliver, and communing with the faithful. The potato crop in Kossuth county is very light this year. What some of the papers in the county will do that advertise to take potatoes on subscription,we don't know. John Adams left for Genoa, Nebraska, Saturday afternoon, via Sioux City and the Corn Palace. He has secured a position in the lumber business and will succeed. It is the 8th of October and here in Algona the tomatoes are ripening and the flowers are blooming in the gardens. The fall has been a very moderate one so far. Mrs. J. E. Stacy, Mrs. C. P. Pettibone, Mrs. B. F. Reed and Mrs. L. H. Smith left yesterday morning for Minneapolis, to attend the meeting of the American Board. Perry Ayers is now permanently located at Sanborn with a new and complete outfit of the best make. The people of Sanborn secure a good citizen and a first-class artist. The assault and battery case between John Sifert and the nursery agent Crozier was very quickly settled by the latter pleading guilty and paying his "ten dollars and costs" like a man. The wagon spoke to the wheel and said it made him tired to be connected with such low felloes as he was. but he was surrounded by a circle through which he could not break.—Boston Courier. The Reading Room is open every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, afternoon and evening. It is pleasantly furnished and provided with all the current literature of the day. Everyone is welcome. Elmer Slagle expects to leave Algona in a few weeks and seek his fortune in Minneapolis. He has been with Frank Bros, about eight years, and has always been known as a faithful and efficient clerk. The first social event of the season took place at the Court House hall Saturday evening. The party was. not large, but everyone reports an enjoyable evening. The music was furnished by the home orchestra. \_ ''' Miss Ella Rutherford 'goes'to'diay to Chicago to take a course in a business college. Miss Rutherford has no. present intention to make any practical application of the knowledge she acquires in business life. Ernest Bacon was down from Burt Friday to tell the newspaper 'men about some Poland Chiiia, hogs he has to sell. lie was also looking into the matter of putting in a feed mill in connection with the Burt creamery. Miss Mary Paine and Mr. Parsons, state secretary of the Young Men's Christian Association, were married at the home of the bride last Wednesday evening. They will live in DesMoines. Everyone wishes them happiness. V. II. Stongh, formerly an.active politician in this county, has been appointed as a judge of election in his ward, and some of the democrats are kicking very hard because, while appointed as a democratic judge, he is supporting the Republican candidate for mayor. The first man to announce himself as a candidate for Clerk of the District Court is W. E. Ward, whose card appears in this issue. Mr. Ward is an Algona man, but known all over the county. He is a painter and decorator by trade. His qualifications for the office are ample. J. R. Jones left for Cedar Rapids Monday evening to attend the Grand Chapter of the Masonic fraternity. Before returning he will make a business trip through the southern part of the state, visiting the coal palace,andimak- ing connections in time to shake hands with the president. We are pleased to note that "Smithy" is making a live little sheet of the Goldfield Chronicle. If every citizen of that little town will do as much to start a boom as "Smithy" is doing, real estate will double in value there in a short time. The Chronicle deserves all the support it can get. Prof. Cooke spoke to a small house Sunday evening, the rain keeping many at home who would otherwise have been glad of an opportunity to hear her. Miss Coqke is doing a good work for home missions, and her efforts in Algona will result in the material advancement of the cause. The gentlemen representing the Jewell Nursery Co., of Minnesota, report a good business and large sales in this locality. There is a big argument in favor of a northern nursery and any stock taken from the Jewel nursery will stand a good chance of living in this climate. If you wish to buy of a foreign nursery you can do no better than to patronize these gentlemen. Tama Jim's query as to how long it requires a hen to lay an egg is creating no little comment among the newspapers and no little investigation among poultry raisers. Some of our Democratic contemporaries are afraid that after the mystifications of the question are cleared away that it will be noth- ine after all but a campaign article sent out at the instigation of the Republican State Central Committee. Rev. Wm. E. Davidson, of tbe Congregational chureb, filled the pulpit of that denomination at Mason City Sunday, Prof.Bortga supplying his place here. On Monday Elder Davidson went to Minneapolis to attend the annual meeting of tbe American Board, the great missionary organization - of tbe Congregational churches of tbe United States. Mrs. R. F. Hedrlck and daughters, Amy and Annabel, left last week for Holdane, Illinois, where they will spend a mouth visiting relatives. On their return they will take their depart* ure for the south, where they will spend the Winter. County Attorney Mayne represented tbe State of Iowa in the assault and battery case before Esquire Taylor last Saturday. The case was taken before Justice Clarke originally, but the defendant took a change of venue to plead guilty before Mr. Taylor. The Courier offers consolation to the editor of the U. D. M. for tbe advantage given the REPUBLICAN by receiving the first offer of Tama Jim's services. Harvey was elevated to the position of bell tapper at the fair races, while the editor of the REPUBLICAN had to sit on the fence, The man wbo can't strike some scheme to make money in America bad better emigrate to some newer field. A traveling corichologist was in town last week selling his wares to the highest bidder. This week the people have been paying ten cents for a view of the Johnstown flood and ruins. The storm flag was displayed Monday and flapped around all day in the sunlight. Whether it was predicting the rain of .Sunday night or the one which occurred Monday night we are at a loss to know. In either case it was correct, another proof of the value and infallibility of our signal service. F. W. Dingley is preparing to move into the store vacated by Mr. Goeders. This is in accordance with an agreement made several months sfnce. Mr. Hoxie will move the building at present occupied by Mr. Dingley to another lot, preparatory to erecting a handsome brick store next to the post office building in the spring. News comes from Bedford, Iowa, that a certain Rev. Brown of that place has been very successful in making love to the young ladies of his flock, being engaged at one and the same time to no less than five members of his choir. The news leaked out owing to an interchange of confidences on the part of the girls. The sanctimonious scoundrel has fled. At a meeting of the Normal School board held in the Clerk's office last night, Mr. W. II. Ingham presented his resignation as president. A committee consistinc of Gep. C. Call, A. A. Call and J. W. Robinson was appointed to confer with Prof. Dodge in regard to finding rooms and boarding places for new students. The Normal School is flourishing. The October number of the North American Review contains an interesting article on the Speakership of the House of Representatives, by James Bryce, M. P. author of the "American Commonwealth." Mr. Bryce is an Oxford Professor and is a man of profound scholarly attainments. At present he is traveling iii the United States and last week paid a visit to Iowa. . Mr. Olof Johnson's evaporator has turned out about 4,000 gallons of prime number one sorghum this fall. Mr. Johnson's infant industry is going to live, a fact of which it might be of interest to the farmers to take notice, as lie will be prepared to manufacture sorghum again next year on shares. All such "infant industries" are welcome as they result in material benefit to the town and county. Sheriff Stephens has entered suit against the city of Algona, and the question of the well case will probably be settled in the courts The well has not yet been thoroughly tested. The REPUBLICAN would be the last party in the world to see Mr. Stephens cheated out of his just tlues,but we commend thecouncil for refusing to invest the city funds in a hole in the ground. Unless the well will stand a reasonable test the city has no use for it. • Dr. E. E. Sayers reached home Thursday after a visit to his parents in central Ohio. The Doctor visited relatives at several points in Ohio and so had quite a good opportunity to see the state. He reports that times are much better in northwestern Iowa than they are in Ohio, where crops in general have been a failure and where there is no fruit. Dr. Sayers comes back with an improved opinion of his judgment in settling where he did. . A great deal has been said about our 75 cent subscribers etc., and we would like the floor for a few minutes ourselves. As we stated once before, if any of our solicitors ever offered the paper for less than the regular price of $1.50 they did it without the knowledge or consent of the REPUBLICAN, and if in any case they did so, they promptly accounted to the REPUBLICAN in some way for the full $1.50, We aim to treat all our subscribers alike. Now let their lying nonsense cease. A. L. Goddard writes in a private letter from Ft. Atkinson, under date of the 6th: "The corn crop through this section is good but not so good as in Webster county. Flax was a heavy crop here and commands a good price. Good crops, good prices and a determination to support the Republican ticket is the order generally among the farmer element. I shall be in Algona in time to cast my ballot. I shall put up a stock of seed corn for next spring's market at Ft. Dodge and at this place." The Courier was a little off last week in reference to Rev. Marsh, and in justice to that gentleman ought to set him aright before its readers, and we have no doubt that it will do so. Rev. Marsh is still connected with the conference as a supernumerary. No charges were ever preferred agaiqst him, and as to his work with Chaplain McCabe, he is still with the Chaplain and is doing well. The Courier was misinformed and ought to correct what it said; such statements are damaging to a man's character. Grandpa Bacon, of Wesley, was a welcome caller at tbe REPUBLICAN office yesterday. He is tbe spryest person for bis age in all tbe range of our acquaintance. He was born in 1799, and has better prospects of seeing the close of the 19th century than many persons twenty years big junior. Mr. Bacon cast bis first ballot iu 1821 f or I Andrew Jackson, and his |a>t ballot for Benjamin Harrison. We bid the pleat* ufe of reading tbe story of his life, ^itt rhyme, composed by himself on bid 85th and 86th birthdays. In spite of the rain last Sunday even* Ing a good audience gathered at the Baptist church to hear the harvest home exercises. The decorations tete tasteful and appropriate to the season, and consisted of a pretty motto with fruits, grains, grasses and forest leaves. Among the exercises by classes were: "Scripture Trees," "Little Sheaves," ^How God gives us Bread," "TheBas- ket Festival." Among the recitations were "The Deacon's Mite," by Miss Carrie Johnson, and "Carrying Home the Sheaves," by Misses Burroughs and Edmonds. A collection was taken for state missions. . The Mason City Express speaks a kindly word.for M. F. Randall, who Is a candidate for tbe Republican nomination for county recorder. It says: "By a card published in the Algona exchanges, we notice that our old friend M. F. Randall is a candidate for the office of county recorder, and we sincerely hope that the good people of Kossuth will give him a triumphant election to the position be seeks. On account of failing health be is obliged to give up the milling business at which be has long been engaged. He is eminently qualified for tbe position, and u elected will fill the office creditably to himself and to his constituency. The new Baptist association will convene in this city next Tuesday evening at 7:80 o'clock. At that time the introductory sermon will be delivered by the popular pastor of the Baptist church at Itumboldt, Rev. J. Schutz. No set order of services is fixed beyond the first evening, but the program will be announced in the meeting from time to time. During the following three days discussions held on "Young People's Societies," led by Rev. O. M. Thrasher, and on "Giving," led by Rev. C. M. Wilcox. A Sunday school session will be provided for and led by F. N. Eldridge. A doctrinal sermon will be delivered by Rev. L. A. Cummins,of Bancroft, and others will also preach. There-will be preaching or some popular service each evening. The people of Algona and vicinity are cordially invited to be present at all the sessions. Rev. Robert Carroll will be present and contribute to the interest of the meeting. J. N. Hallock. editor of the Christian at Work, New York, and his son, Will Hallock, visited relatives in Algona last week. Mr. Hallock is a brother of Mrs. Dr. Hudson at whose home they were guests during their brief stay. Mr. Hallock and son were on their way home from the Pacific Coast, where they had been on a four week's outing, and they expressed themselves as being much pleased with their trip. They went by steamer from New York to Galveston -and from thence via the Southern Pacific to San Francisco. On their return journey they visited the Yosemite Valley, and though it took four days to get from the railroad and back, with but about half a day for sight seeing in the valley, and though so covered up by dust as to be unrecognizable, yet they were glad to have made the detour. The Christian at Work is very popular here, audits readers fipd ipany others.. would - have been glad to become acquainted with its gifted editor and his son, but the call homo was too imperative to allow of a longer stay among us. The U. D. M's. tactics of late have caused more speculation than commotion in the REHUBLICAN office. The gentleman iri the employ of the Upper Des Moines has been chasing our solicitor over the prairies of Kossuth county for about two weeks—dogging his footsteps night and day. What fiis intentions were bus been a matter of no little speculation to the REPUBLICAN. Our mind is now at rest. Lastweek he caught up with our man and asked for the loan of a dollar to settle his hotel bill. Unless he succeeds in catching up with our man quite frequently, his credit will soon be below par with the landlords of Kossuth county. We hope the U. D. M. will be able to reconcile its 16 months for $1.50, with its own preaching, and suppose it will do so this week. One reconciliation at a .time is about all the average man can attend to, and the editor of the U. D. M. will soon be called upon to reconcile a number of school maams. We understand that the U. D. M. has been sent free of charge to some of the younger and better looking teachers in the county. Isn't that just a little unjust Harvey to the old school maams who have stood by the paper and put up their dollar and a half regularly? plain "that a wayfaring ma*n though a fool" could not help but undetBtand them, are BO twisted and misquoted thai they become as distorted and completely meaningless as the Upper Deal Motnes' platform bf political principles, The last issue of the U. D. M. states that the ftBPiniiicAN lately charged one of bur county officials of jobbery. What the REPUBLICAN really said was as follows: In taking this stand the council doubtless reflects the universal feeling. To take any other stand would in fact be acting in violation of every pri pie controlling business men in theh private affalrs,and Would smack strong! lybf jobbery. Tbe REPUBLICAN spoke in referenc to the town council and anyone Whl can honestly make himself believe that 1 we were accusing Mr.Stephens, or anyone else,of jobbery must possess a skull as void of ideas as a vacuum. gling fiends no more believed n double sense," etc. "And That palter to us Public School Report.

H. DlXSON, Supt. A member of the REPUBLICAN force received the following circular letter a few days ago. We omit the address of the firm in publishing the letter, as we do not want to give them any free advertising. The P. M. will confer a favor on the company by putting all such communications in the box of some good Democrat hereafter. DEAB SIR—In view of the present condition of affairs in your, state, we think you will no doubt wish to keep a small quantity of liquor in your house, notwithstanding the ridiculous laws which would seek to prevent you from doing so. We shall be exceedingly pleased to hear from you should you desire anything in our line, and will do everything in our power to protect you from the Prohibitionists. We enclose you herewith our price list to which Ave solictt yopr valued attention. Our goods are the finest, in the market and we know we shall get your permanent custom if we once fill an order for you. Hoping to hear from you shortly, we remain, very truly yours, She Came High. They were just coming out of the ice cream parlor, and as she leaned heavily .on his arm and looked up inquiringly at him, he said in a tone of gentle remonstrance: "Darling, do you—can you—doubt my love?" "No, dear, only I sometimes distrust its intensity. Mine is a deep, fervid, soulful and yearning nature which no common attachment can satisfy. It must be the absorbing"— "Darling, I could give you my whole life and be your humble slave—would die for you if I could thereby give you happiness. You little know, forwords cannot express"— "O, yes, but"— "But what? What can I say that will give you the assurance that your deepest love is answered by this throbbing heart?" "O, if you could only say that you love me like Harvey Ingham loves the farmers." Didn't Know It Was Loaded. The meekness of last week's Courier was the subject of general remark. Had the Courier known that we were loaded it doubtless would have been more discreet in its statements, and would not have been compelled to suffer the humiliation of a complete back- down when the glaring facts 'stood up and looked it in the eye. Hinchou challenges us to publish the names of tbe parties to whom we referred last week. We don't propose to do it for the reason stated last week. The parties would probably not appreciate it to have their names published in that connection. Anyone interested iu the matter, however, can have the names by calling at the PUBLICAN office. This includes Hinchon. If prohibition doesn't prohibit, we are at a loss to know why the "boot legger" asks for, or offers any protection from the "ridiculous laws of the prohibitionists." There ought to be some provision for the punishment of the establishment that thus openly advertises to transgress the laws of the country in the interests of its business.
