We give in another column Mr. Dolliver's actual majority in the district. Official reports were very slow coming in. Ills' probable majority as published by the REPUBLICAN last week was overestimated. Marriage licenses were issued during the past week to Elmer E. Wilbur and Nora B. Robinson, Fred lleibsamen and Dell E. Elwell, Frederick Dau and Mary Rambath, Nicholl P. McDonald and Mary E. Liddie.

Success to him, and he is the kind of a workman that will make a success. Mrs. Chaiiton of Clear Lake, accompanied by Mrs. Dr. Sheetz inspected the Woman's Relief Corps at Renwick last Saturday afternoon. They returned to Algona the same day and Mrs. Charlton inspected the corps at this place in the evening. Through an accident to an entire galley ot type in Hie REPUBLICAN office this morning we are unable to pub- Ish a somewhat lensthy but none the less pointed article from the pen of ex- Governor Carpenter upon the result of the recent election in this district. Britt Tribune: Why is the Democratic party like an old threshing machine? Because it can't do clean work,is made up of old cogs and eccentrics, won't "take" with the farmers, blows more than it threshes, and takes all the profits to keep tha "journals greased." A well has been sunk on the old Hathaway place four miles east of town which would be of some value to the city of Algona and help to solve the water supply question if it could be moved into town. The well was put down 75 feet and it lacks just five feet of being a flowing well. The Georgia editor is becoming discouraged over one of the many problems that journalism presents. He says: "The longer we run a newspaper and write about people and events, the more we realize how utterly imposible it is to scratch every man on the spot where he itches the most." Geo. B. Bacon has purchased the residence property of Geo. L. Minkler, on east Call street. This is a good property and will make Mr. Bacon a pleasant home. Mr. Minkler proposes to at once begin the erection of a new house just across the street east—one that will be built more to his satisfaction. Bro. Brannagan's news is about as reliable as his editorial philosophy on B )litical questions. Here is a sample: r. L. K. Garfield of Algona, who is nearing his 80th mile post, claims that he is the best and fastest bicyclist in the United States of his age and wants a chance to prove it.—Emmetsburg Democrat. J. L. Blunt was down from Fenton yesterday and was a pleasant caller. From him we learn that Fenton farmers are organizing a cooperative creamery association, Orffanizatiofi is now nearly completed and it Is the purpose of the association to at once begin building operations. Mr. Blunt is president and J. M. Moore is secretary. If all works well the new cteam- ery will be in atstive operation the atst of January. Mrs. Lucy Bigelow and son Arthur arrived in Algona late Sunday night. They came by team from Buda, Nebraska, and were about two weeks on the road. Mr. Bigelow contemplates locating in this section of Iowa and they come to "spy out the land," as well as to visit relatives. Mrs. Bigelow is a sister to Mrs. A. Hough. For the benefit of those who may be anxious to know, we print section 11 of the anti-lottery law, which reads: 'The terms "lottery" as nsed in this 'act embraces all kinds of schemes) gen eral or local, for tha distrubution of S rizes by lot or chance such as gift exr ibitions, enterprizes, concerts' raffles, or the drawing of prizes in money and property at fairs. Evidently there are a few ingenious men down at Humboldt, The Kosmos thus describes the scheme of one of them; "E. Cope has planted his stove in the cellar, bricked ft over and has put in hot and cold air pipes and has as good a furnace as one could wish for. It is a great improvement and a source of much comfort and does away with the ashes and dust in the house." C. B. Matson reports two very brilliant meteors a week ago last night. He was returning home about 10:30 in the evening when he saw the meteors. One fell in the direction of LuVerne and the other in the direction of West Bend. He declares it wasn't imagination or lightning bugs or sky rockets, but two very brilliant meteors, which lit up the heavens as light as day for a few seconds. The San Jacinto California Register of recent date has this to say of a young lady once a resident of Algona: "Married —At Portland, Oregon, Oct. 6th, 1890, Chas. Grey and Lelia R. Fountain, formerly of this city. These two young people who have so lately launched forth on the sea of matrimony, are well known in this vicinity, and have many friends here, who wish them happiness and prosperity." Married, at the residence of the bride's father, in this city, by Rev. F. M. Smith, Mr. Elmer E. Wilbur and Miss Nora B. Robinson. The nearest relatives of the contracting parties gathered on the 16th inst. to hear the words which made the happy couple one, and give their good wishes for the future. The newly married couple will live in the property of John Ileckart next to the grange hall. We have found our Map of Iowa to be a very popular premium and have decided to continue to offer it to new subscribers. For the purpose of getting a map correct up to date we have had the plate of Kossuth county revised. The publishers of the map have also made other revisions. The new maps will show all the new townships in the county, and will be ready for delivery about January first. Talking of plowing, an exchange says: "The distance traveled in plowing varies with the width of the furrows as follows: with a ten inch furrow the team must travel a little over nine and a half miles to plow one acre; with 11 inch, furrows,nine miles; 12 inch, eight and a half miles; 13 inch, seven and a half miles; 15 inch, six and one third miles; while with a 16 inch furrow the team travels six and one sixth miles to plow one acre. Goy. Boies is named as »possible candidate for the presidency on the Democratic ticket. The west is demanding that the next president must be a western man, says a Democratic exchange, and Gov." Boies will enter the next Democratic national convention with a large following.. If he succeeds in again carrying Iowa for governor it will give him increased prestige among Democrats in the nation at large and increase his chances for the presidential chair. It is not yet known if the well at the water works will stand the test or not. The pumps were started yesterday evening but were found not to be in order and the pumping was stopped. Some sand was found to have accumulated in the bottom of the well. When the well is cleaned out and the pipes opened up it is possible that it will furnish a sufficient supply of water. We understand that Mr. Stephens has been allowed three days to put the well in condition for testing. A. C. Cady and Bert Ilallock are going up to Burt to start a grocery store. Mrs. J. D. McDonald is putting up a building which they will occupy. Dan Long laid the foundation and J. W. Curtis is doing the carpenter work. Mr. Cady has been a popular salesman in Algona for several years past and knows how to sell groceries, while Mr. Ilallock is not entirely unacquainted with .the business and is well known in Burt and vicinity. Their property in Algona is offered for sale. Success to the new grocery. The Ladies' Society of the Congregational church will give a novel and interesting entertainment at the Congregational church on the evening of Dec. 2nd, at 8 o'clock. It is to be an "old folks" concert, but all are invited and you will not be asked to give your age at the door. It will pay you to visit the concert and learn something of the songs and customs of a hundred years ago. Mrs. J. E. Stacy has charge of the music and the teaching of the singers. There will also be several selections of instrumental music on the program. The price of admission will be 30 cents. Tickets may be obtained of Miss Dodd at the post office or purchased at the door. The October Bulletin of the Iowa Weather and crop service reports the mean temperature throughout the state for the month of October to have been slightly below normal. The average daily deficiency throughout the state was a little short of one degree. During the past ten years there have been four warmer Octobers—in 1881 1882—1884 and 1880. The weather for the month was generally favorable throughout the state for closing up tbe farming operations for the year. The average rainfall throughout state was 3.48 inches. The precipitation in this county was 2-40 inches and the mean temperature was 46.5 deg. Fahr It was rumored on the streets one morning last week that Prof. had resigned his position as principal of the Normal School, The rumor in the main was Incorrect. The real facts are as follows: Prof. Dodge catae north largely on account of the health of his son Hoy, Who id afflicted With asthma. The climate has not proved beneficial to the boy, and last week the Professor sent him up into the pineries of Northern Wisconsin and will follow him there at the close of this term of the Normal School. The Professor has asked for a leave of absence of the Normal School trustees, and it has been granted. He will still remain at the head of the school but will make ample provision for his classes when he is necessarily absent. Many will remember l3r. F. W. Oliver, who used to be located at'this place in the practice of medicine, making a specialty of nervous and chronic diseases. He left Algona about four years ago and has recently been located in Sioux City. He professed to know something about phrenology and occasionally gave lectures. About two weeks ago he went to Creston with the expectation of giving a course of lectures at that place. Last Saturday morning he was found in his room in an an unconcious condition. His medicine case lay open upon the floor and numerous bottles containing poisinous compounds were found scattered about the room. A bottle containing bella- dona and one containing nitrate of amyle were found on the bureau. An empty bottle which had evidently contained chloroform was found on a stand in the room, while a bottle of morphine was found under the bed. The bureau contained a bottle of Dovers powders half empty. From the symptoms it was evident that he had taken several poisons in considerable amount. Whether he intended suicide or not is not known. His friends in Sioux City think that it was an accidental occurrence. He was addicted to the use of strong drink and had been known to be under the influence of liquor a number of times since he went to Creston. The physicians were unable to restore consciousness and he died early Sunday morning. The remains were taken to Davenport for interment. We have received a call and also a letter from A. H. Young, of Wesley, who thinks he was unjustly dealt with in an item in these columns last week. We have been told by a gentleman of high business standing at Wesley that this is so. Mr. Young refers us to the business men of Wesley in substantiation of the justness of his complaint. We must conclude that there is a difference of opinion at Wesley. Knowing nothing personally of the matter, f urthar than tbe outcome of the justice trial,we did not last week assume to pass upon the correctness of the reports coming to us. We gave them as reports, coming in connection with the justice case,and were careful to have it understood that we gave only the reports as such. We gladly, at this time, withoufxassuming to pass upon the unfortunate affair at Wesley, give the disclaimer of Mr. Young and those of his friends. We know personally, however, and can therefore in dismissing the matter, speak of Mr. Young's connections in Linn county. His father, Major J. B. Young, was one of the ablest members of the Iowa bar and a man of high integrity and purity ' of life. Major Young took a prominent part in the prohibition movement prior to and. during the amendment campaign, and he wus also active in religious matters. Jas. C. Young, one of the leading real estate men ot Cedar Rapids, who is well known here and all over Iowa r is a brother of the Wesleyite of that name. Advertising: Pays.

Call at the Republican fcr, Bat? requests the publication of he several articles appended below, which are taken from a circular issued by the Iowa State Board of Health and rom the "Monthly Bulletin" which Is he official organ of the Stat% Board. There are two cases of scarlet fever in Algona besides several cases of what may develop into scarlet fever. There i no occasion for alarm but it is imperative that every precaution be ta:en to prevent the spread of the disease: SOAKLKT FKVEK. Scarlet Fever is now believed to be one of the most contagious diseases. One attack does not always prevent subsequent attacks. The greatest number of deaths from this disease is of children under ten years of age. Adults 10 sometimes have the disease. Scarlatina, and Scarlet Rash are dentical with Scarlet Fever—equally dangerous and equally contagious. They are one and the same thing. DANGER SIGNALS. Upon notice being given to the board of health of a township, city or town, or the health physician thereof, or whenever any member of said board, or the health physician, shall have knowledge of any cases of Scarlet Fever, Diphtheria or Membranous Croup within their jurisdiction, such local )oard must cause a yellow cloth or card laving "Scarlet Fever." "Diphtheria," 'Membranous Croup," as the case may )e, conspicuously printed thereon, not ess than eighteen inches square, to be 'astened upon the front door, or other conspicuous place of each building in which said sickness prevails, said cloth or card to be maintained during the jxistence of the disease, and untifsuch ime as the local board is satisfied the premises have been properly cleaned, disinfected and purified. If said yellow cloth or card is removed without authority from the local board, the name of the person, or head of the family occupying the premises, together with the number of the street, or location, shall be published, and the person removing such card or cloth, or causing its removal without authority of the local )oard, shall be fined a sum. not less ,han twenty-five dollars. ISOLATION. Whenever a child has sore throat or fever, and especially when this is accompanied by a rash on the body, the child must be immediately isolated as completely as possible from the other members of the household, and from other persons, until a physician has seen it and determined whether it has Scarlet Fever, Diphtheria or Membranous Croup. All persons known, to be lick with either disease must be puompt- y and thoroughly isolated from, the public not less than thirty-live days. No such person must be permitted to associate with others,nor attend school, hurch, nor any public assembly, un- 11 in the judgment of a careful and intelligent physician they can do so without endangering others, and then odly >ypermisfion or order of the local >oard of health. It is always better to solate individuals and families close schools, and thereby allow' the- children to intervisit, and be thrown together on the play grounds. DECISIONS OF T1IB STATE BOA11D. The period of quarantine must run forty days from the date of the appearance of the last case on any premises;. iven then it must not be released until there has baen proper disinfection- and there is no further danger from in.,. 'ection. What is the meaning of the term isolation of the sick, as used in quaraiir- "ane regulations? ANS. It means the complete exclusion of all other persons from the sick except the nurse and attending physician. That the sick shall be placed in a room apart from others, to which no ?erson can have access; that the nurse shall be restrained from going to and !roni the premises, or mingling with the family; that all well persons shall be prevented from oontact with bedding, clothing, food, or other articles that been used on or about the sick. Where such exclusion or isolation is had, the lieadsof families and adult persons may be permitted to go in and out to attend to ordinary business, provided they avoid gatherings of people and children, but where from necessity the parents are the nurses, the isolation and quarantine applies to them.
