A daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. Walt Henderson last Wednesday night. Elder Sumner has lately moved into Dr. Bead's new house in the south part of town. Dr. Barr reports that there are no new cases of scarlet fever or diphtheria in town. Next Sunday evening the Baptist pastor will describe "How self-denial brings evil. A special meeting of Algona Lodge No. 174 K. of P., is called for next Friday night. D. A. Buell and family will spend the winter in Florida. They expect to start next week. *H v ,T<1 C- Fj'ftnpJi opened up his stock ot holiday- goons' ki»\ .oai>i(!uu7 B..UU reports a good trade. The hammering at the stand pipe continues. A month of good weather will see it completed. A car load of Sioux Indians went east over the Milwaukee Sunday night under a heavy guard. Mrs. 11. B. Proctor and daughter, of Kirkland, Illinois, are visiting the family of E. C. Tuttle. The second annual convention of the Algona district of the Epworth League is in session at Webster City. "Bead what Tama Jim" says in another column under the heading, "Nine Months Foreign Trade." Durant Brothers have the floor in this issue of the BEI>ULICAN to talk about their stock of Holiday Goods. D. II. Hutchins expects to leave in a few days for San Bernardino, California, where he will spend the winter. Wm Kempster of Geneseo Illinois has been visiting at David Kings during the past week.

James Fairall, the cook at the Thorington, who has been sick, has so far recovered as to be able to go to his home at Missouri Valley. Eugene TelHer is about through with the typhoid fever and he says he ia glad of it. Five members of the family have been down sick. Bev. Davidson was surprised the other evening with the gift of a very fine gold watch, a token of the esteem in which he is held by his church. A marble works is just the thing for Algoda. How we have managed to get along so well with seven physicians and no marble works is unexplainable. We will wager one of our famous premium maps that the editor of the Courier doesn't know but what "follicular tonsilitis" is the scientific name for diphtheria. All young people interested in the work of the Epworth League are invited to attend the meetings of the League at the Methodist church every Monday evening. A good audience turned out to the Old Folks' concert last night, and it was voted a first class entertainment by all present. Some have expressed a desire to have it re-repeated. If you need anything in the line of Winter foot wear call on Forrest Stough. We judge by his ad. in this issue of the BEPtrntiCAN that he has what you want and that his prices are all right. Corbin Hyde, of Pomona, California, who has been here the past few weeks on business, returned home yesterday. B. F. Hyde and mother, of Algona, returned with him. They will spend the winter there. Corwith Creecent: The Algona Courier seems to delight in nothing more, than in hitting an old soldier and when the soldier hit is a disabled or crippled pensioner of the U. S. its glee becomes hilarious. The following were elected officers of Algona lodge No. 236,1. O. O. F., at the regular election last week: 11. F. Hedrick, N. G.; B. F. Beed, V.

The doctor has a practice which fully warranted Gov. Boies in reappointinghim to the position of deputy state veterinarian. Capt. L. B. Baker, of Livermore, is iu attendance at court this week. Capt. Baker was elected to the office of clerk of Humboldt county at the late election, and his principal business here is to familiarize himself with the duties of the office. A Mr. Olmstead a graduate of the state Agricultural College is in the city and lias made application to the Normal school board for the position occasioned by Prof. Dodges necessary absence next Winter. The board have not yet taken action. • • The Demorest Medal Contest provided for by the ladies of the W. C. T. U. will be held in the the Congregational Church the evening of December 15th. There are to be 13 contestants. Further mention of the contest will be made next week. ATopeka, Kansas, newspaper says a farmer drove into that city with a load of turnips the other day and insisted on storing them in the state house basement. He said the farmers had captured that building and were going to make a practical use of it. At the meetinsr of Algona Lodge No. 174 K of P last Friday evening the following officers were elected C, C. L. A. Sheets; V. C., C.W. Creed; K. of B. andS.. Leo Pugnet; P., Dr. J. M. Pride; M. A., Dr. W. E. II. Morse; M. E., J. W. Bartlett; M. F., Chris Ileise. Mr. Stadtmiller, of Pomeroy, who has the contract for building the Fenton creamery, is on the ground and at work. Jacob Nelson of Algona has the mason work to do. but Mr. Studtmiller will himself superintend the carpenter work, and will push the contract to early completion. Algona is soon to have a marble «v«>v<*... This is something the city has needed tor .years. iix.i»a«afi e of dollars have been sent out of town every year to build up other places that might have been kept at home had a good marble works been located here. More particulars of this new enterprise will be given the public next week. Bev. Davidson will not leave Algona. The board unanimously refused to accept his resignation and he will remain, at least until the end of his pastorate year, which will be sometime in June next. This action upon the part of the board is in harmony with the feelings of the entire church. We are glad that Bev. Davidson is to remain. Frank McCall returned last Wednesday from a week's visit to his old home in Wisconsin bringing with him Wm Conner a brother of Mrs McCall who expects to make his home in Kossuth County. Mr. Conner is a young man and for some time has been in poor health but it is hoped that the salubrious climate of Kossuth will soon bring him to health. The net work of button hooks in the window of F. S. Stoughs boot and shoe store is completed and any one buying $1.00worth or more of shoes has a guess on the number of hooks. The prize is a pair of fine shoes. Providing two persons guess the right number the one guessing it iirst is entitled to the prize. The hooks will be counted New Years Eve. Notice what Jas. Taylor has to say this week about a special blanket sale. Whenever Taylor talks in the newspapers about special sales it means special prices and his goods are always found to be of a uniform quality. Remember Taylor's blanket sale. If you have any occasion to buy an article in that line it will prove a profitable memory exercise. A story is going the rounds that a New York physician lias discovered the seat of consciousness to be ia the appendix vermifprmis. He has made numerous experiments iu removing the "blind intestine" and in each, to* stance It faulted In blotting tbe mot* al sensibility, In 6ne c*» a man who had submitted to the opetation murdered bis mother-in-law in eold blood within two years from the time the operation was performed. An exchange says: The meanest man in Iowa, has been discovered in Kossuth county. He sold his son-in- law a half interest in a cow, and then refused to divide tho milk, maintaining that he sold only the front half. The cow hooked the old man, and now he is suing his son-in-law for damage. The old man's end of the animal is likely to kick the O. M.'s head off, but the young man isn't kicking about that. The following named persons took out their naturalization papers at this term of court: F. G. Standburg, John Wilson, Theodore Anderson, H. O. Wilson and Alfred J. Johnson, natives of Sweden; Nikalous Wieeant, Wm. Wertzel, Julius Biebsam, H. C. Brewer, Peter C. Boahalz, J. Loaft, Chris Miller, S. M. Miller and August Doering, natives of Germany; M. Lang, native of Hungary. The Courier's unblushing cheek was exhibited to the public gaze last week in the statement: "The Courier is the first paper in the county as usual to publish the President's message." Why the Co.urier should make such a statement directly in the face of the fact that the BEPUHLICAN published the message in full two days before the Cour came out, we don't know. We present this as an additional testimonial of the Courier's general reliability. In last week's Courier Hinchon sets up his opinion as to the correct diagnosis of a case, against that of a regular physician. It is possible that Bro. H. mistook his call to the editorial chair of the Courier, but we are quite sure that he has no special adaptability for the medical profession. With diligent application he might become a fair "surgeon to old shoes." If he insists upon the medical profession however we would recommend that he turn his attention to the profession of a veteranarian and make a speciality of the diseases of mules. Court convened Monday under Judge Carr. Very little of general interest has occurred thus far. The divorce case of Alice Fullerton vs. C. II. Fullerton was disposed of Monday. The divorce was granted and Mrs. Fullerton given the custody of the minor children.

Geo. Clarke and S. S. Sessions represent Mrs. Schichtl's side of the case and Cliggitt & Bule, of Mason City, represent Mr. Schichtl. Mrs. Schichtl asks for a divorce and the custody of the children. The grand jury was impanelled yesterday but adjourned, there being no business to come before it. A man from up the track 'was in town last Saturday, and but for the efforts of some of his friends to steer him home he might be here yet. He had evidently imbibed just enough "democratic enthusiasm," to keep his legs from performing their accustomed functions. When last seen by a BK- PUIVLICAN reporter he was trying to get to the North-Western depot, but his feet would'nt track, and it required the constant vigilance of a friend who accompanied him, to keep him picked up and away from the ditch. We regret that it is necessary for a man to come to the county seat whenever he wishes to get beastly drunk. We are rid of our original package men but some body in Algona posesses a very capacious boot-leg. A good story is told on two Algona swains. Thanksgiving day they drove over to West Bend with the expectation of taking two AVest Bend damsels to the hop which occurred at that place Thanksgiving evening. They called at the home of the young ladies and were told that the girls were out but would be back in a few minutes. When the few moments bad expired the ladies appeared each with a West Bend young man in custody. After a few moment's conversation, during which the Algona boys made a desperate effort to seem entertained, the girls took their West Bend young men in tow and started for the hall, inviting the Algona boys "to be sure and come over to the dance." The boys said that they certainly would, but as soon as the coast was clear they hitched up their old pelter and pointed his nose towards Algona. The old horse made the best time on record between West Bend and Algona. The moral to all this is— patronize Algona «irls. We have refrained from publishing the names 61 these two young men but they can be had by culling at BBPUULIUAN office. The scissors manipulator of the Courier took exceptions to the statement in last week's BEPUBLICAN that Mr. W. W. Wheeler had been suffering with a light attack of diphtheria and offered his diagnosis of the case. The Editor of the BEPUULICAN was careful to consult the physician who attended Mr. Wheeler—Dr. Morse—with a view to ascertaining if the report that he had actually been down with diphtheria was correct. We made the statement upon Dr. Morses' authority and the doctor stands as high as anyone in the medical profession in Kossuth County. Where Hinchon got 1,5* ''follicular tonsilitis" theory, don't know. \V~e regret rUJJJUUUuilu inu.vj iou in aa.j ou, IL iu yiv« poses to stay on the fence let it say so. In short, let it quit its skulking methods and come out in the daylight and tell the people where it really stands. That is independence. The salvation of the Republican party in 1892 is in the Republican press. We insist upon honest journalism. . »-*••»-< THE COUNTY NEWS. BUFFALO FORK. Special Correspondence. BUFFALO FOUK, Dec. 8.—L. C. Smith and family have moved to Algona and Mr. ButterUeld has taken the post office. Our first snow to amount to anything is here and sleighing is good. Miss Clara Matthews is visiting near Algona with her brother Elmer. GKBMAN. Special Correspondence. GERMAN TWP., Dec. 5.—A pleasant time was enjoyed: at the social hop at R. Johnson's Wednesday evening. Adam Fisher, a former merchant at Irvington, has opened up a general merchandise store in this vicinity. Mr. Fisher is a hustler and we expect a big boom in the grocery line. Fred Patterson has opened his school in the Pannkuk district with a good attendance. This is his third term in that district. Nothing could imply a better recommendation for a young teacher. A number of boys from this neighborhood started Thursday last for a sojourn of a few clays to Blue Earth City to enjoy the mild climate there,we suppose. Quite a young student has recently taken up his home with Mr. and Mrs. Aaron Sheldon. It is thought that he is quite a bit too young to yjo to select school. Aaron ought to nave a high hat. Winter is here, and it ilnd» most all prepared for it. Across the street Mr. Wolffe's crew are finishing Grant Whitney's store, and his stock of goods are arriving. Mrs, 8. J. O'Neill entertained a number of her lady friends at an afternoon tea. A pleasant time is reported. The M. E. Ladies' Aid Society gave an oyster supper at Mrs. J. D.

Those who attended tiie Thanksgiving dance say they had a splendid time. We felt sure they would have, for the managers were determined that such. would be the case. The dance proved a success in every particular financially and otherwise. Miss Katie Falbt daughter of Fred Falb, died at the family residence,three miles north of town, Tuesday night of last week. The disease which terminated her earthly life was dropsy, from which she had been a sufferer for some time. Miss Falb was, about seventeen years of age and was respected by all who knew her. The funeral occurred Thursday. FENTON. Special Correspondence. FKNTON, Dec. 8.—Born, to Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Petitt, Dec. .5, a daughter. Clark Peck, of Plum Creek, was seen on our streets Saturday.

Henry Elvedge has rented his farm. T. M. Clark's daughter has returned to her home in Wisconsin. his we the necessity of referring to the matter, as Mr. Wheeler will probably fail to appreciate such public comment upon his case. We note Mr. Hinchou's attempt to slur the REPUBLICAN in this matter, as but another one of those exhibitions of his assininity which the public has long since learned to look for at regular intervals, and we feel confident in assuring him that his drivelling attempts to say something have long since been carried to the "anauseum." degree iu the eyes of the general public. Last week's issue of the U. D. M. was very quiet on the question of county politics. The public can only infer that what the REPUBLICAN had to offer on the question of Harvey's course during the campaign and his general unfaithfulness to the Republican party, was absolutely correct— which was the case. Harvey could uot answer the charges for lie could not go back on the back files of the Upper Des Moines. He is privileged to ruu a mugwump sheet if he chooses to d° 80 > but we decidedly object to tu<? busin being conducted in the i Republican party. That IUVINGTON.

There will be an oyster supper in the new church in the near future. Keep watch for the date. C^uite a number of our young people enjoyed coasting on the Maun hill north of town Saturday evening. There will be another next Saturday, we understand. The concert at the school house last Friday evening by Miss Georgia McNeal was a rare treat to all. The program was very well rendered and & good audience was present. A class of about twenty members was organized. We hope by spring to have a singing class equal to, or superior, to any corresponding number of singers in the county. UNION. Special Correspondence. UNION, Dec. 9,—The first snow of winter found the corn nearly all in the criD. Mrs. Amos Finch has returned from a visit .with relatives in Buchanan county. Rev.

Miss Cora Frink is taking a business course at a Des Moines college this winter. IIANCllOliTi Special Correspondence. We have noticed several items in the papers, at home and abroad, in regard to Thanksgiving in Bancroft. Permit me to say that the day in Bancroft was in advance of any like day in this or any other town in which it lias been our privilege to spend the day, uot as to single events or personal endeavor or achievements, but as a national holiday and religious festival it Avas universally observed. Against a race, two raffles and u dance and other attractions last year, this year there Avas- no gambling, race,' shooting match o»? dance. A large congregation attended public worship in the morning. The stores were closed, and) with many a social dinner party and excellant literary entertainment, excellant in both character and rendering. Ave closed the day feeling that this community \vas vastly improved in its moral aspect, and Avere all thankful that we Avere disposed to be le#al to .our nation's call and disposed'.to render unto God our praise.
