Mrs. John Connors whose death was reported in the UBPUIIUCAN last week was buried last Thursday in the Catholic cemetery at this place. The funeral exercises were held in the Catholic church and were conducted by Father McNiernny, of Livermore, in the absence of Father Nichols. Editors can work the meanest tricks on each other without flinching. Al. Swahn of the Oskaloosa Herald Is very dark complected and wears his hair long like an Indian. The Brooklyn Chronicle published his portrait at the head ot a column containing an account of the death of Sitting Bull. Fully no per cent, of our exchanges have worked off a gag about Sitting Bull now being "a good Indian'' or something to the effect that he has joined the ghost dance." It seems a little remarkable that the joke editors of the different papers should all have boon inspired to make the same pun. Tlie Bulletin of the Iowa weather and crop service for November reports the average daily temperature for the month to have been GO 55 above normal tlie mean temperature for the month beincSS QO^.Tlie average precipitation for the State was 1.46 inches. The month was favorable for plowing, corn husking and other farm work. A Denver genius has secured a patent on an electric car which will have a speed of 168 miles an hour, or across the continent in 30 hours. A road for it is proposed from Denver to San Jbranciscq. Its advantage over the ordinary railroad car is that the car track needs no cuts or fills, but goes as easily up and down hill as on the level. i,« 41 ffMlftJ i Courier, for the .»»„„.„ etliflcntion of the crowd. After he had finished reading the ffrertt Kossuth county organ of free trade and no pensions, Bro. Tellier asked for the paper with the remark that his wife had asked him to buy a box of concentrated lye, as she wanted to make some soft soap, but that there was no use to blow In 26c.for lye when there was enough of the stuff in that one copy of the Courier to make a barrel of soap. We would suggest that Bro. IE. should start a soap factory in connection with the Courier office, or that he should keep a quantity of soap grease on hand to Rive as a premium with the Courier. A cute yankee has been working a number of the senators pretty sttccess- f'W fo f various sums of money. Diftorent senators have been receiving letters lately from n, man in Baltimore who signs himself William Duval 825, East Baltimore Street.

The jtfew York Mail and Express man has successfully made the journey across the continent in a canoe and is on his way home after having navigated over (i,000 miles of water.

B, Paul has patented a device to warm a cold bed in the winter time, ine heat is generated by means of a common kerosene oil- lamp and conveyed into the bed by means of a tin tube. Mr. Paul claims to have a device that will lay the old fashioned method of a hot Hat iron in the shade. It he will now invent a machine to get up in the morning, build the lire and get breakfast his fortune is assured. Matt Richardson and W. II.

Maude Cowan was awarded the silver medal at the Deuiorest Medal Contest last Friday evening. Robt. Davenport was marked second aud Bertha Hancock third. The other speakers were Clara and Belle Ramsey, Luella aud Grace Sifert aud —Clock. The contest drew a very fairsi/ed audience Iht-se contests may be held every thirty days, if it is desired and after ei«ht contests have been held the eight winners may contest for a gold medal, ihe medals are furnished by Mr, W J Demorest of New York city and it is required that all recitations have reference to teuipereuce. Eugene Tellier worked off a pretty uieau joke oil the Algoua Courier one day last we*k. A number of men were m Mr. Tellier's shop aud oue of the number was reading a copy of the last G. B. Paul has christened his patent bed warmer "The Daisy," aud wants agents everywhere. The machines will be manufactured here in Algona. Any one who has ever crawled into an ice cold bed when the mercury in the thermometer was away down in the bulb will appreciate the value of Mr. Paul's invention to the suffering public. It is the lot of Methodist presiding elders, and other f unctionaries,who are forced to travel around over the country and be entertained at private houses, to sleep in the spare bed in the guest chamber. Nobody but a Methodist preacher could stand such an ordeal— in a fresh bed every night for an enttre season. The brethren will understand the importance of Mr. Paul's invention. We want to say right here that Algona has been getting to the front during the past few weeks in the line of a diversification of her industries. With the foundry, and marble works, aud patent fence, and Daisy bed warmer manufacturing establishments in full blast, Algona will assume a metropolitan aspect. S. D. Brear, the weather doctor, has completed his prognostications for '91. Among other prominent features for the year we are to have a cyclone in July and snow storms in September. The weather during January and February is to be very changeable with occasional rain and snow storms. March will come in like a lamb and go out like a lion. April will be changeable with considerable rain. May will be changeable with considerable rain aud a cool spell in the middle of the month. There will be plenty of rain iii the early part of June but the last week will be the finest weather of the year. July will be changeable and wi'll wind up with lots of ruin and a cyclone. August weather will be variable but we may look for heavy rains during the last week. September will open up with cool weather aud rain and snow and will close in the same way. It wiil be winter the rest of the year with just one week of line weather—the second week in October. There will be lots of snow aud rain all through November aud December. Altogether '91 will be an unpleasant year, as far as the weather is concerned. The camp tire at the G. A. R. ball last Wednesday night was perhaps the most successful affair of the kind ever held in Algona. The house was crowded with the members of the G. A. R and their families. The program was interesting and well received, and the customary camp lire rations were disposed of in a manner which reflected favorably upon the skill of the cooks The meeting was called to order by the commander of the G. A. R. post, J. B. Jones, who welcomed the members of the Womans' Relief Corps aud the Sons of Veterans. The address of welcome was responded to by Mrs Dr Sheet/, of the Relief Corps." Dr. Ban- came next on the program with a paper on the "Sanitary Commission." This was followed by a piece of music after which J. W. Bartlett read a paper on the subject "The Mothers of the Boys Mrs. W. II. Ingham then read by the asked for an endorsement fYom V the'au- dienc-e. The endorsement was unanimous.

The above is one of Harvey's smart dodges. In starting out he quotes a certain statement of the RKPUHMCAN, but he does not stake his $25 on the correctness of that statement. He stakes his $25 on the truth or falsity of something the BEPUBUUAN has never said: that he has quoted from Democratic speakers or papers in misrepresentation of the MeKinley bill and other Republican measures. What we have said has been mainly specific, and when tlie U, D, M. comes to make denial of those specific things there may be room for controversy between us. At present there is none, as its futile attempt to dodge the point is a confession and not a denial. When it denies that its campaign was one of bigoted, narrow and dishonest opposition to the leading Republican measures it will be time to talk, but in the mean time its resort to the bully's tactics of flourishing big bills will avail nothing. If Harvey dares to put up that $25 on the correctness of the statement quoted from the KKPUULICAX, we will be glad to get our witness and accommodate him—providing he will place the money in the hands of Capt. L. M. B. Smith. Eugene Tellier or some other responsible person. Should we cite Bro. Ingham to a do/.eu misrepresentations in each issue of the U.
