Married, Oct. 29, 1890, by Rev. O. M Thrasher, Mr. Frank Seeley, of Fairfield township, Palo Alto county, Iowa, and Miss Mary Finnell of Lotts Creek township, Kossuth county, Iowa. Geo.

We publish this week another letter from Col. Comstock. It is an interesting Avriteup of the Northwestern Exposition. The Col. is still of the opinion that Iowa is the best State in the Union after all. Mrs. Jennie Albright died of consumption last Thursday morning at 7 o'clock. She left a husband and two ittle children to mourn her loss. The 'uneral took place Saturday morninc from the M. E. church. It ,is expected that Mrs. Carrie Lane liapman, a lady who has been doing such effective work for prohibition in Nebraska, will speak to the ladies of Algona on Monday afternoon, Nov. 10. Further notice will be'given. Miss Del Richardson is making'quite a reputation as a lady bicyclist.

A citizen of Algona came into the REPUBLICAN office last Saturday morning and said that he wanted to snb- scnbe for "a good Republican paper." We offered him a chair and the floor to spit on, and asked him why he didn't ^ikethe Courier. He said that the Courier was about as much of a Republican paper as the other one, m that he wanted some good Republican doctrine for awhile,unadulterated with any of that mugwumpishness that matte liis head ache and unsettled his dinner. Col. E.g. Nettleton, chief engineer ?L-l rr i g o. fcl ? n ^ n . d representing the Jmted States, is investigating the swb- ect of irrigating a large territory in Southern Dakota by means of artesian wells. The eastern edge of the 'artesian well basin stops suddenly on a me between the James rivers. How tar west it extends no one knows. The supply of water is unlimited and it is estimated that one well will supply sufficient water to irrigate 1,000 acres. it tue irrigation scheme is a success it means wealth by the millions for South Dakota. No pen picture is adequate to present the insignificant littleness of the bolter, the disappointed office seeker who goes back on the whole ticket because he fails to get the nomination he s seeking for. Such a person deserves he everlasting contempt of all right hinkmg men. That portion of his make up which represents manhood is hriveled to such insignificant propor- lons that he would rattle around in a flea's cranium like a dried pea in a jassdrum. Hold that man in ever- asting remembrance for he may ask avors of the party again. . First ward ... A iirnniJ Second ward. Al * ona< ) Third ward .. 'Fourth ward. Totals for A.) con a.

Bill Nye's wisest saying: "Blessed is the man who makes his mistakes early in life, regrets them, and puts vaseline on the sore places." The number of Iowa's congressmen will probably remain the same. The new apportionment will be in the neighborhood of 175,000. The Republican papers of Wisconsin have made a gallant tight for tlie little red school house. Republicanism everywhere is Americanism. llev. Phil Hanna addressed the people of AVhittemore last Tuesday night on the tariff question and other issues of the day. He spoke at Bancroft Monday night. The Rev. Mr. McDonald of Emmetsburg will officiate at St. Thomas Mission on Sunday. There will be a celebration of tlie Holy Communion after the morning service. Even a mathematician would have been astonished had he visited the polls yesterday to note the different combinations possible upon a Republican or Democratic ballot. Perry Wilkins and wife left on the Monday morning train for Minneapolis. He goes to work for W. W. Johnson she lived here and this announcement will bring a feeling of sorrow to many of her old associates. G. M. Annis who has been in the countv a few weeks will-return to Spokane Falls in a few days. After a little preliminary work there he expects to return and open up a branch office at Des Moines. He and Mr. Comstock are in the real estate business. Judge Caldwell's decision in the Van Vhet original package case settles the case of the original package in Iowa. The only way to enforce prohibition is to enforce it. Without determined effort to enforce the law it will continue to remain a dead letter on the statute books. Jas. Taylor had a little experience with a shop lifter the other day and the shop lifter had a little experience with Jim." A young fellow was detected in the act of walking off with a pair of gloves and he was promptly collared and brought back to settle with the cashier. Last week's Courier says thafi the fact that the Democratic county candidates "did spend the summer working up their nomination, and 1 knocking other Democrats out" will! be- at matter at consolation to them' "if they aa-e de- J-eated." Rather hard' on 1 fil'ie- Democratic candidates. The Normal School library has recently received a very line set of Johnson s Universal Encyclopedia. The Professors and students are enthusias- astic in their effovto to pluo.fv rirsfc-clnss woiko of icference at their command. 1 he public should encourage them in their good work. J. I. Sawvel was married at Larch- land.Ill., Oct. 29, to Miss M. E. Brown. His Kossutli county friends wish him untold happiness. Mr. Sawvel' lias been engaged in engineering work for the past four years and is at present chief of a party engaged in a railroad survey in Kentucky. Company F. completed target practice last Thursday with the following result: Marksmen—Capt. Thos. F Cooke. Horace Mann and Guy L. Taylor. First class—II. J. Edens, W. E Hon. B. I. Sallinger had a very good ludience at the Court House last Frilay nightand he dished up the tariff [uestion in a way that didn't quite suit he taste of the Democrats. He spoke ior nearly two hoars and confined hirn- -t *. !f U ulr ™ st entirely to the tariff ques- pt the tlon. We are sorry that every voter in the county was not privileged to hear the speech. It was a fair and honest presentation of tlie question and made a good impression. Mr. Salinger was suffering with a severe cold, but succeeded in holding his audience well, all except a few Democrats; they couldn't stand his logic, and retired. Nolte. Tlie depredations of the "kids" Halloween evening extended for several miles into the country. They gave our County Superintendent a call and took the wheels off her buggy and hid them in some unlikely place, and great was her surprise when she led her horses out to her buggy and found tlie wheels conspicuously absent. Mr. and Mrs. A. Hough arrived home trpni their Michigan visit Thursday afternoon. They were accompanied by Miss Anna Powers, who will remain with them a year. They report a very pleasant trip and an enjoyable visit among old friends and relatives Speaking of prosperous times, Mi- Hough says lie did not find anything as good as old Kossuth county. Next Saturday, Nov. 8th, is the day set tor the decision of the question whether women shall be eligible to tlie position of lay representatives in the jeneral conference of the M. E. church by the Algona society. The question will be decided by ballot and the polls will be open at the church from 3 to 7 n thei afternoon. All members of the Jhurch who are 21 years old or over can fote at this election. Mr. Bossingham left on Sunday light's train for Osage, Iowa, where le wasi called by news that his sister, he widow of the late James Starr, was dying. Word of the death of Mrs. 'tan- reached here this morning. Since '"< tragic death of her husband, in If yon read matter in tlie Democratic papers purporting to be some of Chairman Mack's campaign correspondence, you very likely had occasion to wonder now the correspondence fell into the hands of the Democrats. Chairman Mack wondered about it and last week the mystery was cleared up. The same political party that appealed to English capital to help it defeat American enterprise has gone into partnership with sneak thieves to accomplish its purpose. A boy by the name of treorge Ilutchins was hired by the chairman of the State Democratic committee to steal Chairman Mack's correspondence, and for accomplishing the theft was paid the sum of $40.00 lliey discovered nothing damaging to the Republican cause and the whole thing reacted with unpleasant effect upon the Democracy in Iowa. We are willing to offer a prize for the best diognosis of the U. D. M's. case from a political standpoint. It has played a very peculiar role during the past campaign and sustained its old reputation for getting a peculiar affection or the knee joints whenever it became necessary to stand up and make a square light for Kepublican principles. It has been complimented by the Democratic papers for "doing good work against the McKinley bill." A tew weeks ««o it took a prominent P«it in the general pow-wow about advancing prices, and was as boisterous as a Free Methodist in the "Amen corner. Last week it was as quiet as a Quaker meeting while the Courier talked as loudly as ever about the increased cost of living under the new tantt bill. We cannot believe that the Upper Des Moines has experienced a change of heart for it refused to circulate copies of the McKinley bill in the interests of the party it professes to represent.but you can get one u by calling at the office." Misrepresenting the McKinley bill has grown to be nudity unpopular with Republicans. Fred Foster reports an amusing but painful accident to a young man from Boston who went up the river with him tor ducks one afternoon last week The young man had never been beyond the suburbs of Boston before, judging from his actions and his knowledge of the use of the shot gun. After showing him how to load the gun and how to make it go off after it was loaded, and after cautioning him uot to lire unless theducks were in easy range Fred went over in the woods andlaid down behind a log. In a few moments a flock of ducks flew up at a distance of about 40* yards. The young man from Boston immediately had an attack of the 'buck ague," and unable to control himself until he could see the whites of their eyes, he fired. Fred raised up from behind the log upon the report of t , Ue J? uu . and 8aw his Boston friend doublequicking it for the buggy, holding his nose in his hand. It seems that the recoil of the gun brought the hammer in contact with his nose almost tearing a good sized piece of that organ completly off. The young man had his nose sewed ou and has gone back te the hub.

Tims far we have heard of no frauds, no ballot box stuffings, intimidations, or murders. This is Iowa and we have no need of the Force Bill in the Tenth district for we elect our congressmen with ballots and not with the shot gun. On the whole it was an exciting election for an off year. No one worried about Dolliver very much with the exception of one or two men who call themselves Eepublicans and who were working against him. The interest all seemed to center on the county offices. The county was very thoroughly canvassed, considering the short space of time between the convention and election. The canvass for county attorney was very exciting and was even prosecuted before the very altar in the synagogue. A great deal of interest was centered in the election of Justice of the Peace, and the combinations on the different ballots made the result look very doubtful for awhile. Peters and Benschoter received a majority for Supervisors in all the wards, The manner in which the campaign was conducted and the result of election go to show that the .Eepubliean party is pretty badly broken up in Kossuth county. The county is strongly Republican but has a queer way of proving it at the polls. With some of the Republican papers of the county giving the people Cobden Club doctrine and refusing to circulate Republican campaign documents, with others doing their best to defeat the county ticket because one or two of the candidates happened to be 'so unfortunate as to live in Algona, and with all the bolters, kickers and sore heads to operate against it the party has not tended toward solidification very rapidly. We did mighty well under the circumstances. ELECTION NOTES. Returns are slow coming and the election is doubtful all over the country. Iowa is estimated to be Republican by from 4,000 to 10,000 majority. The latest reports state that Henderson, Struble, Hull, Flick tind Dolliver are surely elected. Hayes is probably re-elected in the second district, and Gear defeated in the first. The other districts are reported doubtful. Maj. McKinley is probably re-elected. Republicans have carried Indiana and Ohio. The result in Minnesota, Kansas and Nebraska is in doubt.

Some of the boys had staked considerable money on the result and were naturally a little anxious. About ten o'clock the crowd began to collect from different localities around town and center at the Tennant House. Returns from tht different precincts in the county were very slow coming in. Bulletins from the election in New York and Chicaeo were plentiful but the crowd wSufd have been willing to trade the whole batch for one word from Lu Verne or any other point in Kossuth countv About 11:30 Chairman Taylor reS/d' a dispatch from Lu Verne and some of the boys got sleepy and went home, others atayed to ratify. '«»"«» The returns for the city of Algona on the state ticket show an increase of two over the vote polled last year for the Democrats and a decrease of 23 for the Republicans. Some of the Republicans failed to get to the polls. 485 votes were polled at the election last year as against 444 tliis year. The deficiency can only be accounted for on the supposition that some of people staid at home. .
