Editor Platt of the Lu Verne News was in town Saturday. V. S. Ellis of the Bancroft Register was in our city Saturday. Capt. Jeanson of Swea was in attendance at the Baptist Association. The thriving village of Burt now has a meat market running full blast. Fred McCall is back from Spokane Falls where he spent the summer. The editor of the Courier thinks that a man who rides a bicycle is bigoted. Cyrus Phillips left Monday for Whatcom, Washington, to take up a claim. It is reported that "Deck" Jones, of Cresco township, is about to move to Algona. The members of the M. E. church at Burt are going to build a parsonage for their pastor. Aggie Billsborough is reported better. She has been very low with typhoid fever. Will Haggard -writes from Milwaukee that he has found employment on the Journal. Prof. P. D. Dodge preached in Bancroft last Sunday morning and in the evening at Burt. The Courier would like to see the original package men corne back and show their sand. C. B. Matson lias been acting in the capacity of assistant clerk of court for the past few days. The Comstock mansion presents quite a different appearance owing to its new coat of paint. Rev. Whitfield hands us a copy of the minutes of the Northwest Iowa Conference recently held at Spencer. It is reported that all but twelve of the thirty-one who took out their second papers last week, were Republicans. The foundation for the Episcopal church is completed and the carpenter work will be pushed as rapidly as possible. Butler Bro's. sale last Wednesday was very well attended and was one of the largest sales ever held in the county. The Monday Club met with Mrs. Cowles Monday night. The ladies of the club are probing deep into the mysteries of geology. W. W. Johnson, of Minneapolis, was in town several days last week. Mr. Johnson expresses himself well pleased with Minneapolis. Elder Smith kindly furnished us with a report of the 'first meeting of the Baptist association. It appears elsewhere in this issue. Apropos of the McKinley bill an exchange remarks that salvation is left upon the free list and the tax has been taken off of sulphur. Advertisers should have their copy m by Tuesday noon to insure insertion in current number of the REPUBLICAN. Please bear this in mind. The News says that some Algona people have been buying their beefsteak in Lu Verne. My, my! That's tough.—Goldfield Chronicle. D. Ramm's butcher shop and residence is a credit to the town with its new coat of paint put on by Mr. Adams of Algona.—Livermore Gazette. Two new churches are in proces of erection over at Whittemore. Lutheran and Baptist. Mr. Plumlev put in the foundation for the Lutheran church. Col. J. H. Keatley of Sioux City will speak in the Opera House Monday evening, the 27th. The water works well contains about four feet of water. How long it will stand pumping no one can tell. One of the Algona bootblacks is raising a howl about the "McKinzie" bill increasing the price of blacking. Prof. E. B. Warman was married in Des Moines last Monday. Everyone in Algona remembers the Professor. Guy Grove attended the Iowa convention of the societies of Christian Endeavor at Grinnell last week, as a delegate from the thriving Algona society. C. M. Wasson who teaches in Harrison township dismissed his school for several days for the purpose of acting as delegate to the democratic county convention. A "Cardinal Tea" was held in the parlors of the Congregational church last Thursday evening. The tea was served by the ladies of the church and was a success. Our package boys have flown and Algona is again a decent town! The grand jury found indictments against both Woods and Stewart but couldn't find the men. Pastor F. M. Smith and Sidney Rist will attend the Baptist State Convention at Red Oak this week. There will be the usual services at the Baptist church next Sunday. The Irish World ought to be read by every Irish citizen of this country. It is published in the interest of the Irishmen and there is no more loyally American paper published. D. A. Ellis was in town monday. Mr. Ellis has just sold his interest in the Blue Earth City Register, to his partner, and now talks of going to Washington in the spring. The children of the Methodist Sunday school will give a concert next Sunday evening entitled "Glad Tidings.' The concert will take the place of the regular Sunday evening service. The well case has been settled for the time being. Algona will pay Mr. Stephens interest on $650 until the well has been tested,providing the well is accepted. This is fair to all parties. F. E. Wolcott has sold his interest in the grocery store to Mr. Carter, who will continue business at the old place. Mr. Wolcott is undecided as to the future but is likely to remain in Algona. The REPUBLICAN stated two weeks ago that Dr. Garfield had sold his Jewell Safety to Charles Gray of Bancroft. Edward Gray was the man who purchased the wheel and he has a very good bicycle. • A sample of what Kossuth county can produce in the line of apples is on exhibition in the post office. It might not be out of place to mention that the fruit was grown from stock raised in the home nursery. A man reports that he has seen Frank Robert's panther and that it is nothing more nor less than a yellow colored wolf which was as timid as the rabbits it was watching when seen by our informant. G. W. Pangburn and wife of Elmore, Minn., were in town over Sunday. Mr. Pangburn reports a boom for Northern JCossuth. Everybody is buying land up there and the real estate man has all the business he can attend to. present who refused to vote. This is the first time we have heard of the other side kicking about minority rule* We have just received by all odds the finest lotof samples of programmes, embossed and etched folders, wedding goods, invitations, regrets, etc. etc., bhat ever came into the REPUBLICAN office. Parties needing anything of the kind will confer a favor upon themselves by coming into the REPUBLICAN office and examining. A. L. Goddard writes in a private letter from Ft. Atkinson that he finds no corn in that region or anywhere he has been that compares with the Kossuth and Webster county corn. However, he says that good crops and a determination to vote the Republican ticket are quite the usual thing in the eastern part of the state. Have you read that big poster in the window of the REPUBLICAN office? Almost everyone who passes by stops to read it and occasionally a group of eight or ten are collected in front of the office finding out how the Democratic members of Congress have been representing their constituents. When you go by the office stop and read it- II. F. Watson arrived home last Week from a lengthy visit in the east. Mr. and Mrs. Watson spent most of the time in New York state but returned by way of Ohio to visit their daughter, Mrs. Dr. Pomerine, with whom Mrs. Watson now is. Mr. Watson says our farmers ought to be happy, as their prospects are much better than that of the eastern farmers. The U. D. M. has changed its shape to the manifest improvement of the paper. It is now a quarto and might be taken for the REPUBLICAN if its editorial columns didn't contain so much stuff of a Cobden Club color. The last, issue of the paper contained a stereotyped farm department by way of a recognition of its farmer readers. We are not informed if this is to be permanent or not. The fire alarm sounded rnonday morning and the boys got there in good time but the fire had become disgusted and gone out. The editor of the U. D. M. and his agent arrived on the grounds ahead of us and you will doubtless find a fuller report in his S aper. The fire caught in a room over radley & Nicoulin's office. Some bed clothing had been left to close to the stove pipe. No damage. The REPUBLICAN received a letter a few weeks ago from a De» Moines hog cholera doctor, stating tbat he had some "no cure no pay" bog cholera medicine. He had read in some of the papers that hog cholera was very prevalent in Kossuth county. We havn't heard of it. A great many hogs have died in other parts of the- State this fall but we have yet to learn of a single case of cholera in this eouraty. LEGAL BLANKS o FOR SALE o M EEPUBLIOAN OFFICE Corbin Hyde, of Pomona, California, is back in Algona for a few week's visit. He closed up the sale of his Algona residence to J. R. Laird. At present he is ranching near Pomona. He reports Dr. Forbush is in feeble health. E. II. Slagle has found a situation in a hardware store in Minneapolis and his family will move to that eity in a few days. This takes a good family from Algona. and one, too, that has been very active in church and social life. Mr. J. B. Carr of Seneca handed us a stalk of flax containing 890 bolls. Geo. Call has done some loud bragging about sample stalks from his fields bearing as high as 200 bolls. Mr. Can- says they turn the hogs into such flax as that up in Seneca. This office has just received two elegant lines of samples of wedding invitations, programs in endless variety for every kind of an entertainment, and are prepared to print them in the best possible manner. Give the REPUBLICAN office a trial. "Tarna Jim" Wilson will speak at the convention of the Iowa Butter, Cheese and Egg association. Mr. Wilson is everywhere in demand. His knowledge on all subjects relating to the farm is appreciated. The association meets at Ft. Dodge Nov. 5th. "Tama Jim" is more widely quoted in his farm articles than any editorial writer in the State. One exchange of last week contained three long articles from "Tama Jim's" pen; two were credited to Mr. Wilson and the other to "Ex." People know a "meaty" article when they see it. G. M. Annis arrived in town Wednesday from Spokane Falls. He reports Col. Comstock and family and R. J. Danson and family enjoying good health and well satisfied with their new location. Mr. Annis will be in the county several weeks, attending to the closing up of unsettled business. A. M. and G. M. Johnson Avill manufacture Woodling's automatic check rower. The check rower has been on exhibition in Algona for the past two weeks and every one who has taken the trouble to examine it is satisfied that it will work. If you need a check rower you will do well to examine this one before purchasing. Hon. Jackson Roberts and wife, of Washington, Iowa, were in the county last week. Mr, Roberts was already the owner of a half section of Kossuth county land, and while here he bought the Mrs. Gibson farm. The Gibson's and the Bamsey's will remain on the place. Mrs. Roberts is a sister of Mrs. Gibson's late husband. One of the delegates to the democratic county convention was overheard giving it to Speaker Reed for allowing the minority to rule in Congress by declaring that a quorum was present in spite of the democrats Work on the water works psogresses slowly and it begins to look like it would hurry Harrison & Mawley to have the plant completed by the time specified in the contract. After the walls of the engine room were'complet- ed to a height of about six feet it was discovered that the building was not square with the world and tlte work had to be undone;: Mr. IPlumley, now has the contract for putting' up the building and it will be done right?. lion, N. V. Brower will speak in Bancroft Monday evening Oct. 27. A great many in the southern part of the county would be glad of'an opportunity to hear him if the Northwestern; road 'would be kind enough'to run a special train. Hon. B. I. Sallinger will speak at Oct. 81—Friday. Botli of these meetings will be held in. the evenine. The time until election 1 is short and every effort ought to be put forth to make the most of the meetings. M. E. Billings of Waverly has been found by the supreme court innocent of the murder of Willis Kingsley after having been twice convicted and sentenced to the penitentiary for Me. If Billings was actuality responsible for the death of Kingsley it was one of the foulest murders in the-history of crime. No one in Waverly beiaieves in his innocence and if he shows himself iu. thnt locality the town will sustain its bloody reputation and settle the Billings* case for good. Married, at the residence of the bride's father in this city, on Thursday evening, Oct. 16, Mr. Morris G. Minlb- ler, of Ashmont, Ohio, and Miss Florence Minkler, daughter of Mr. O. Minkler. After the ceremony was performed by pastor F. M. Smith, the company sat down to a bountiful supper, and enjoyed the occasion in a hearty manner. The groom is a thrifty Ohio farmer, and the bride, well known in this city, has recently made Emmetsburg her home. D. Tallman of Bancroft was in town last week with his curiosities—an eight footed horse, six-legged calf, a big snake and some white rats. He got the customary patronage. Mr. Tallman in an interview states that while in Minnesota he saw "Jumbo," the fat man who used to be in northern Kossuth. "Jumbo" constitutes a show by himself, weighing now 640 pounds. He is at present unable to walk and is loaded into a wagon box when they want to move him. Prof. Recheford, state agent lor the Eastern Organ Builder's Association, has refitted the organ in the Congregational church and it is about as good as new. He has contracted with the school board to do all necessary repairing to the organs belonging to the city schools. Mr. Rocheford's work is all the recommendation he needs. He has had 32 year's experience as an organ builder and is an expert, if one can be found. If your organ needs any re- S airing you will do well to see him be- jre he leaves Algona. J. L. Blunt, of Fenton, D. T. Smith and P. L. Slagle, of Algona, and Case Wiltse, of Ramsay, were heartily supported by their friends for recorder and the convention had a strong list from which to select an available candidate. In the attorney contest, S. S. Sessions, of this place, Samuel Mayne, of Bancroft, and J. C. Raymond, of Lu Verne, stoutly contested the nomination with Mr. Quarton and showed good support. W. E - Ward was supporred by several townships for clerk, and when it came to supervisors the woods seemed to be lull of good men, with nominations for only two. The defeated candidates accepted the decision of the majority with every appearance of sa^sfaction Fay great attention! What does this spell- Ghoughphtheightt«iau? Well, according to the following title it spells —it spells—do you give it up? It spells potato, viz—gh stands for p as you will find from the last letters in hiccough; ough for o, as in dough: phth stands for t, as phthisis; eigh stands for a, as in neighbor; tte stands for t, as in gazette, and eau stands for o, as in beau. Thus you have p-o-t-a-t-o. Who Will give another?—Yenowine's News, The Estherville Republican advertises to supply a family with a baby upon application at the Republican office. Don't know whether the Republican is an agent for an orphan asylum or has to take babies on subscription. If it was one of our Kossuth contemporaries instead of the Estherville Republican we would be sure right away that it was the latter case. We hope some good family will relieve the Republican of its charge for if the child stays in a printing office it will certainly grow up to be a "devil." J. B. Jones advertises his stock sale in this issue. Mr. Jones has one of the finest herds sf Short Horn cattle in this part of Iowa. The entire herd of cattle will be sold at auction besides other stock including two imported Shire stallions and some Poland China breeding stock. Mr. Jones' stock is well known in KosStltfa county and needs very little advertising 111 this immediate vicinity. Parties from a distance will do well to attend this sale if they are in search of some of the best blood in the country. The sale takes place Nov. 6th. It is remarkable to what insignificant sources a great man sometimes owes his fame. Mr. Hinchon's advice "shoot the bicycle" is destined to go down to posterity. No one sees a bicycle now without thinking of the Courier. "Shoot the bicycle'' is already a popular slang expression in Algona, and is liable to have as big a run as "rats" and "chestnuts" had a few years ago. We congratulate Bro. Hinchon, and by the way, "shoot the bi- cpcle" is the only thing which we have known the Courier to get off for three months that has been quoted. A Mason City special to the State Register states that extensive preparations are being made for a reunion of the chapter of the Order of Eastern Star of Northern Iowa, to be held in i that city about the middle of November. The chapters at Decorah, Manchester, Oelwein, Strawberry Point, New Hampton, Charles City,Rockford, Cedar Falls, Hampton, Vinton, Sheffield, Grinnell, Des Moiues, Marshalltown, Clear Lake, Colfax, Algona, Sanborn, Spirit Lake, Norway, Akron, Souther-land 1 and Le Mars will take part. The proceedings will include an exemplification of the work of the order, and will) close with a grand banquet. The following named persons took out their naturalization papers at this term of court: Ole P. Huane, Eric Ericksoiv, Ctol Isakson, J. A. Freeh, NelsNordin,. O-lof Molin, Nils Anderson, August Kerchton, F. Sheppak, Christian Streit, J. Widman, Helmer Bernker, Chris Schupbuch, Fred Straight, George Schneider, Herman Hinx, Charlie' Ealk, John Swanspn, John Hinz, C'. J. La/tsen, Peter Frellih- g er, A. Thorson, 'Andrew Johnson, harles Bergland, Eidc Loquarn, Fred Benkendorf, Ferdinand Copper, Nick Barmann, August Christ T Michael Christ. Thirteen weue natives of Germany, twelve of Sweden, four of Switzerland one ofi'Korway and one of France. come on out west. At Savannah, Iowa, he Was taken seriously ill with What appeared to be of the nature of cholera mqrbus. Dr, fiarr attended him aftef the party arrived in Alffona, and he seemed to improve until about four o'clock Sunday afternoon when he rapidly sank and never rallied. The remains were sent east Monday night. Last week's Courier contained another slap at the editor of this paper sandwiched in between an item oh tbe Billings murder case, and a write up of a fight which took place last Week up in Ramsay township. Hinchon always has something on his mind, if it isnt a Cape May cottage, or a bicycle, or somebody else's private business, it is something else of the same nature. Every one in Algona knows the history of the bicycle ordinance and knows that it has never been published, and never will be unless the riding becomes a nuisance. The editor of the REPUBLICAN has never yet violated either the spirit or letter of the law and does not deny that he has repeatedly used the the sidewalk when the roads were too muddy for riding. A bicycle has equal rights in the road with any other vehicle but is very liable to frighten a team, and we have frequently taken the sidewalk for several blocks in order to avoid passing teams in the road. Parties having any cause for complaint will do well to see us personally,or complain to the authorities and not be running with their grievances to some sore-headed editor who has completely exhausted his ammunition in a newspaper fight and is "in the soup" figuratively speaking, for something to say. We are sorry that an editor should be guilty of such small tricks as the Courier man prides himself in. Hinchon must have been interviewing an apple tree peddler in the barber shop before he thought of his bicycle innovation. We cant account for his inspiration on any other grounds. Out of respect to the reputation of the editorial fraternity to which Mr. Hinchon has the honor of belonging we wont explain just what we mean. It is reported that Dolliver is afraid to face the people on the McKinley bill and has abandoned the stump.—Emmetsburg Democrat. This report has about as much truth in it as the average Democratic campaign story—no truth in it all. The people of this district are satisfied with Dolliver and will send him back to Congress with an increased majority as a recommendation. The Iowa W. C. T. U. closed its 17th annual session in Bes Mines last Saturday. Mrs. J. EUe«i Fostev was tendered a reelection to* the office of president of the union but declined. The officers of the association foirthe ensuing year are: Pres&lent, Mrs. Mattie M. Bailey, Sheuandoah; Coriiesponding Secretary. Mrs. Masy J. Alduich, Cedar Rapids', Recording Secretary, Mrs. E. C. Macy, Harlan; 'JfreasureivMrs. Flora J. Ovington,Clihton; Trustees, Mrs. M. A. Holmes, Marshalltown^ Mrs. M. A. Taylor, Des Moines, Mies. E. J. North, Essex. The Union by a vote of 815 to 63 severed its nwxaliaryshlp with the National W. C. Tl U. Tbe Iowa W. C. T. U. Messenger;.published in Des Moines, is tlse official! organ of the W. C. T. U. of Iowa. Don't forget that Mr. Dolliver speaks here tomorrow night. Com& out and hear him. If you are a Rte-publican, and we trust you are, Mr. Dolliver's speech will be an inspiratiomto you, if you are a Democrat you will! go home from a political meeting for once in your with sometliiiig. to think about, and if you are on, the fence- you may get your befoggedS intellect snfficiently cleared np to see'how you look to other people and it wiHl do you good. Every one is invited to be present. Mr. Dolliver is acknowledged by h'isi worst enemies to be one of. the most brilliant orators of the present day. Young as he is he has a fame already that is national. Mr. Woods was never heard of outside of the tenth district and never will be. That sterling paper, the Spirit Lake Beacon, has "tumbled to the racket" and secured: "Tama Jim" Wilson's farm department. In introducing the department the Beacon says of Mr. Wilson: "Mr. Wilson was born on a farm and raised on a farm, Save when he has been called to fill some important official station he has had no other occupation. Few men i» the state or nation are so familiar with the details of farming and stock growing. He is besides a man of great breadth of general knowledge and a wide range of experience, and one of the best writers in any field the state affords. Since Father Clarkson's death Mr. Wilson is head and shoulders above all agricultural editors of the state. We know our farmer readers^ will appreciate Farmer Wilson's counsels. Mr. Ellis Benson of St. Lawrence county, New York, died at the Tennaut House Monday morning about half past two o'clock. Accompanied by his wife, and his wife's sister and sister's husband, he was on his way to Parker, Dak., to meet a brother, but was compelled to stop at Algona being too sick to travel further. Mr. Benson was a man seventy years and some months old, a hard working farmer, and seems to have been quite broken down in health and unable to resist disease. On his way west be stopped id Ohio and visited a daughter for a few weeks and from there came to Wisr consin and visited with relatives, tak The fall meeting of the Mitchell Association of the Congregational church opened yesterday afternoon at 5 o'clock and will close with devotional exercises tomorrow evening at 8:45.

VAQJLVUUji YfAVaj, AVACpMlVO) UBAT log advantage of the laud exqursiott to The Upper Des Moines last week devoted almost an entire column to the attempt to show that the REPUBLICAN was being sent out free. The charge coming as- it does from the editor of the U. D. M. ftardly deserves any refutation. Ills' methods of representing the other man's case are notoriously dishonest, and we have several times called attention to them in the REPUBLICAN, and'tfte U. D. M. has always been discreetly silent on the subject for awhile after we have shown up its contemptible methods or misrepresentation. A Ibng-suffering public will pardon us for exposing another of its irregularities. Last week it published a circular, in part, which we had sent out with sample copies of the REPUBLICAN. The part omitted by the U. D. M. expressly stated that our terms of aub- scriptioin were $1.50 in advance. The U. D. M.. also purposely forgot to atate that the parties receiving the marked circulars- never received but one sample copy of the REPUBLICAN. We have not sent out any sample copies for several weeks, and those marked circulars, a few dozen in number, were sent out with the last batch of sample eopies. The eircuiar stated that the REPUBLICAN would be sent for "several weeks free-©f charge." The man who-mailed the papers containing the marked circulars, thinking to be honest with the public, crossed out the words "for several! weeks," and the persons receiving those marked copies never received but one sample copy of the REPUBLICAN. The innocent pencil mark furnished foundation for a whole column in the U. D. M. The editor of the REPUBLICAN knew nothing of those marked circulars until he read about them in the U. D. M. The readers of the REPUBLICAN have a claim on its columns for news and we again ask pardon for this article. That the Upper Des Moines would be guilty of anything to gain its point is no matter of news to anyone who knows its editor, and we can be justly criticised for devoting any space to the proof of the matter. With this issue of the REPUBLICAN we are done with tbe "circulation fight," If we stopped to answer everything charged by some of our contemporaries we would never get started again, and we like to keep goiufr
