AVhen the tariff on eggs of 5 cents per do/,en went into effect last October eggs were worth about .15 cents per dozen: since that time the price of eggs has been steadily advancing.

He has rented Dr. Ensign's house, and will make Algona his headquarters for the distribution of his famous 1 'Silver King" seed corn. Speaking of this seed corn, it is really the finest corn we ever saw. Kossuth county should be thoroughly stocked with it. It is a white corn with a well developed ear and large, deep kernels. It is a beauty, and, added to all this, it is early—ripening early in September. This is a free advertisement for Mr. Goddard but the corn is worth all that can be said for it. In view of the fact that he could not possibly give any further attention to the Normal School this year Prot. Dodge "presented his resignation _as Principal last week. The resignation was accepted at a meeting of the Normal School board Monday evening and Prof. McCollnm was elected Principal. This arrangement will be eminently satisfactory all around. The real duties would have devolved in fact upon Prof. McCollum in the necessary absence of Prof. Dodge. Prof. McCollum is amply qualified for the position, hav- had sufficient experience as a heen connected, with the Normal morrow. This is an infamous tax on one of the necessities of life. There will be a meeting of the Womans' Relief Corps at the G. A. It. Hall tomorrow evening. Election ot officers is the business of the evening and a full attendance is desired.

The New York Tribune of Dec. 25th contains a write up of a down east athlete by the name of Benjamin Capen, who 'is 87 years of age and a fancy skater. The Tribune refers to our own Dr. Gariield as the champion trick and long-distance bicycle rider, and A. C. Owen, of Mason City, aged 84, as the champion 4o-rod sprinter.

The fellow got his boss' overcoat to wear and when he the but does not think that they are wholly confined to this state, and cites the case of Mr. Capen in proof of the fact. The Tribune gives the following account of a recent exploit of the old gentleman: "The present winter reminds him much of that of 1807, though the snow is not so heavy. The old gentleman had the misfortune to skate through a hole in the ice last week, which had been cut to water Ilarlow Gate's cattle, but he readily floundered out, cut his name in the center of the pond three or four times and ran into the house and dried himself by the kitchen lire, putting his feet iuto the oven and hanging his red mittens over the teakettle handle. A strange coincident in connection with the accident is that he went through a hole in exactly the same place on the same day of the month in 1810—precisely eighty years ago." The special meeting of Co. F, which was held last night, was planned by Capt. Cooke as a reception for Lieutenant Reaver, who leaves Algona for got to Elmore he had the ticket made out in his own name, drew the money on it, and skipped with the overcoat but left the team tied to a post.

This is a larger showing than any other State has been able to make at tlie same age with the exception ot lexas. Texas with its immense territory has a little the advantage of Iowa. Minneapolis Tribune: Mr. Watterson wrote from the heart when he tossed off this paragraph: ^People who have to pay duty ought to readily see f ' the high taii«. four one-eyed edijbQJ! to Qt» through a bed. The "Daisy Bed Warmer" is a success. But it is so simple that only a trial will convince one ot its merits. With one of these bed warmers going to bed in a cold room is robbed of its terrors. It is just the thing to have in the house for use in the "spare" bed. An affair of considerable interest to sportsmen will probably take place here tomorrow. C. W. Budd, of Des Moines, one of the directors of the Iowa State Sportsmen's Association, is expected to be here and shoot against John Smith. Mr. Budd held the championship of the United States for two years. It is now held by M. A. Elliott, of Kansas City, who is to shoot against a St. Louis man by the name ot Haggerty in the near future. Budd has challenged the winner in this contest to a shooting match.

The present fine condition of the company is largely due to the enthusiastic work of Captain Cooke and the boys appreciate the fact. After the meeting was called to order last evening, C. B. Matson stepped forward and in a few appropriate words presented the Captain with a fine gold headed cane in behalf of the members of Co. F,and as a token of their appreciation of his services.
