Kossuth county will still be his home and headquarters. w^ M ie me 9 ti " B of the b °ai-d last week three of the county officers-Attorney, Mayne, supervisor Olson and Recorder Creed-retired, and their successors assumed the official capacity. All three have been faithful servants of the county and it is with the best of g m° • , eel ng . on evoi 'y haml that their official relations are severed. The new officers are competent men and have the good will of the REPUHLICAN ir- r respective of politics. The Courier has been giving its fanner readers able agricultural articles lately. The gist of several recent articles is that the farmer has been actually losing money on his corn crop tor years and hasn't hadsense enough to quit growing corn, and that the ordinary lieu doesn't lay as many eggs in the winter as'in the summer t'imo. Air. A. L. Goddard claims to have a species of corn—the Silver King—which is by all odds the finest and best corn ever propogated. It is the result of years of experiment. Mr. Goddard is a veteran corn grower and has succeeded in producing an excellent variety and a variety especially adapted to Iowa. He will mail a discriptive circular upon application. The pigeon shoot last Thursday between Budd, Grimm and Smith attracted quite a crowd. Budd made the best score getting 03 birds out of 7o, Smith got 5!J and Grimm 54. Everything considered the scores were very good. From the location of the grounds it was necessary to stand facing the the sun and the glare from the snow made it hard to see the birds. M M M-n V ' McArthur. agent for "The McMillan Comic Opera Company " was in town on Saturday last and closed a contract with the manager, Mr oVicoulin, for Jan. 20, 1891, when they will appear in the prince of comic opera entitled, "The Doctor of Alcantara. This company is composed of the best artists that it is possible for money to secure and as they come well reccomended there is no reason why then- appearance here will not be the leading musical event of the season. In another column will be found a notice from Durant Bros, requesting a settlement of all outstanding accounts as they are going out of business. Hie announcement is somewhat of a surprise to ail as they are one of the standard firms of Algona. They will not leave the county. The reason for closing out is on account of the health ot Henry, who linds that the confinement of the store is more than he can stand. He is troubled with a severe cough and as soou as the business is lic»ii " *-T" '. — —~* v j I.AUII.

Spirit Lake Beacon: A Hurnboldt correspondent of the Sioux City Journal suggests ex-Senator Chubb, of Kossuth, as the Republican candidate for governor. This is a most excellent suggestion. Senator Chubb is lirst, last and always a farmer. A farmer wlio farms. A farmer who knows by actual experience what the average farmer on the Iowa prairies enjoys, endures and suffers. He is unalterably a man of the people, and his ability and public experience are ample. He would make a winning race and a strong governor. You received a sample copy of the Home Market Bulletin last week, it was sent you at the request of the ALGONA REPUBLICAN. By special arrangement with the publishers of the Bulletin we can furnish a year's subscription to our regular subscribers for ?5c. The regular subscription price is 50c. Everyone, more especially every Republican, ought to take some good protection Journal. The tariff question is to day the greatest question in American politics. It remains for the individual citizen to decide between protection and free trade. We cordially recomend the Home market Bulletin to our subscribers. The County printing is avery small affair to light over according to the Courier and the Upper Des Moines. The Courier declares that the printing is worth but little over $100 per year rind Harvey Ingham repeatedly assured :he board when he was trying to liavis the REPUBLICAN'S list rejected, ;hat the county printing had paid the Upper Des Moines less than $200 during the past year. Why not tell a good one, and then swear off for a while? From the schedule of claims allowed the past year, and published in botli the Courier and the Upper Des Moines, the U. D. M. was allowed over $-500 for services to the county. It is a cold day when the Algona Courier isn't looking for an excuse to quarrel with the REPUHLICAN, and it is a far colder day when the editor of Courier gets any satisfaction out of the RuptiiiLicAN. Two weeks ago we reported eggs to be worth 20 cents a do/en on the Algona market and noted as a, coincidence in connection with this fact, that eggs had increased in price since October (J. when the new duty on <-ggs took effect—just about the amount of the tariff. The REPUH- LICAN asked if tlio tariff in case of eggs was added to the cost of the article, and if it was,how the, tariff on eggs was robbing the fanner. The Courier has been sputtering for two whole weeks over that little item and explains in the most serious way that hens don't, lay as many eggs 'in the winter as in the summer time and that the tariff has nothing to do witli the price, for eggs have gone down .some :•? cts in price and the tariff lias not been reduced. Well—we will never attempt any sarcasm on the democratic party or democratic campaign stories again. When it comes to sarcasm the REPUIIMCAN is a failure. At least our feeble efforts are lost on llinchon. Remnants cheap, at Gal-braith's. Four cough will not last all winter: You will not be kept awake at night.; MADE A SPECTACLE OF ITSELF. the Upper Des Moines Unable to Pi-ovo Its BenklcR Chnrgeg Against the Republican. "Another otic of TlioBo Ingtnnce* where the Vigor nncl SncccKN of the "War <U<1 not <JuMo Cotno tip to tlie I^ofty and Nonndliiff XMmiHo of the atantfento." After hearing what the Upper Des Moines had to say in proof of its grave charges of fraud against the BBPUHLI- caN, and after hearing what the RE- rtn»LicAN had to say in its own defense, the board of supervisors brought in a unanimous verdict of not gujjty and awarded the printing to the HE- PUBLIOAN. The decision of the board was followed by a ghost dance around the premises of the Upper Des Moines in which Harvey and Bob were the principal participants. It was stated to a RKPUULICAN reporter on good authority that Harvey's language has been much more irreverent than usual since last Thursday afternoon. The general charges made by the Upper Des Moines were to the effect that the IIEPUULICAN'S list was "permeated with fraud;" among other things it was charged that the paper in scores of instances had been given for less than the regular price, that the REPUBLICAN'S agents were instructed to take subscribers at any price, that the paper had in many instances been sent to parties when it was never ordered, and so on. The U. D. M. produced an affidavit from a former agent of the REPUBLICAN to the effect that he had while in the employ of the REPUBLICAN taken subscribers for less than the regular price. The REPUBLICAN produced another affidavit from the same agent stating that he had taken in all, not to exceed twelve subscribers at less than the regular rates, but that he had taken those on his own responsibility and without instructions from the REPUBLICAN. Both Harvey Ingham and his attorney, Geo. E. Clarke, held to the rather remarkable grounds that proof of a single subscriber taken for less than the regular rates ought to be sufficient to warrant the board in rejecting the entire list, but the REPUBLICAN produced an affidavit from Mr. W. B. Bossingham to the effect that a years' subscription to the Upper Des Moines had been given to him as a present by the renowned Freeh,andllar- vey wasn't quite ready to have his list rejected as fraudulent. Another argument upon which Mr. Clarke dwelt with peculiar emphasis, was that the REPUBLICAN had been sent in many instances where it had never been ordered and that these methods had been especially adopted in the south end of the county where their agent had never gone to look up the record of the RKPUUMCAN-. Mr. Clarke ventured that the REI'UKLICAN'S list had been padded at least 150by this method in the south end of the county; but when it was proved that the RJSPUHU- CAN only claimed to have a, list of about fifty in the entire south end of the county and that all but about six of these had been on the books for over You will get immediate relief if You will use DeWitt's cough and consumption cure.

Constipation poisons the blood ; DeWitt's Little Early Risers cure constipation. The cause removed, the disease isgooe— SbeeU a year, Mr. Clarke subsided suddenly and silently. And so the hearing proceeded. W. C. Danson assisted by Mr. Moiling, of the Emmetsburg linn of So- pevAllen&Morling represented the RE- PUBLicAN.For thebenefit of all interested in the controversy between the two papers, the REPUBLICAN'S case was as follows. No fraud was intended upon the part of the publishers. A few subscribers—not exceeding one dozen in number—were taken for less than the regular advertised price, but this was done without authority from the REPUBLICAN and entirely upon the agent's own. responsibility. The RE- i-UBLicAN made no attempt to disguise anything, but admitted its cut-rate subcribers and courted the fullest investigation, resting its case upon the good sense of the board. Mr. Clarke laid much stress upon tha argument that a subscriber who paid less than $1.50 was not a subscriber. The REPUBLICAN, contended that anyone paying a reasonable consideration for the paper was a bona iide subscriber. These grounds were endorsed by the county attorney. In fact no one having any knowledge of the law of contracts could hold to any other opinion. The Upper Des Moines was a little bit mistaken in its estimate of the board of supervisors. Harvey boasted that he had the board at his disposal, and that he expected Mr. Clarke to bulldoze his case through for him. If pettifogging and bulldozing could have accomplished the objeet, the Upper Des Moines would now be one of the official county papers. Nothing but the Geo. E. Clarke style oi' conducting a case could ever knock off 78 bona fide subscribers from the REPUBLICAN'S list and give the printing to the Upper Des Moines, and Harvey knew it, but he was mistaken just a little bit in his estimate of the board. stated by Mr. Boies. Also that the av- enige price of corn in Iowa for a period of years was double the price named by Mr. Boies. In the rear 1889 the corn crop of Iowa was about 820,000,000 bushels. And the average crop of Iowa for a period of fifteen or twenty years has been about 250,000,000 bushels. And there is no reason to doubt that this vast amount could be increased at least fifty per cent, without material additional cost. An improvement both in quality and quantity of the corn crop of Iowa is desirable. An improvement in the quality would increase both the demand and feeding value. It is a well known fact that corn is the most important forage crop of the state, not excepting grass. We are dependent upon the corn crop for the production of the vast quantities of pork, beef and dairy products which we are sending east to feed the hungry people of the world. Iowa beef, Iowa pork, and Iowa butter, the production of Iowa corn, are in good demand, owing to their excellent qualities. We should all feel proud of our distinction as an agricultural and intelligent commonwealth. It becomes the duty of every lover of Iowa soil, Iowa intelligence and Iowa manhood to repudiate and rebuke such misleading statements that the Iowa-farmer is getting poor by growing King Corn. Surely every lover of Iowa, be he farmer or not, should take a lively interest jn the welfare and prosperity of our beautiful state of Iowa, whose destiny is onward and upward in the scale of prosperity and intelligence. It has been truly said that no country in the world has bluer skies and greener fields than Iowa. Less than fifty years ago it was a wild, unbroken wilderness, the home of roving bands of savages, but today it is the foremost agricultural state in the union and the world, and King Corn is the staple crop. Without it we would be very poor indeed. Our yearly income from the corn crop alone is nearly or quite $200,000,000. Truly a nice little sum. But the distinguished governor of our state tells the people that we, are getting poor every day growing coj in Iowa, A little more than a yi ago I saw placarded on the stars an stripes, the emblem of o-ur greatnes'i and honor, and in the? streets of Algona, "Iowa Redeemed." "Iowa's Saviour." This was in honor of the election of Mr. Boies as governor of Iowa. I have always been under the impression that Iowa was abundantly capable of redeeming herself, and I believe a majority of the better element, are of the same opinion. Respectfully, A. L. GODDAHD. »--<«!*-•« NORMAL SCHOOL NOTES. The winter term at the Normal is now under full headway and everything points to a very successful terms' work. A class of over twenty has been organized in book-keeping, which is using Goodyear's system of business training. A class has also been organized in Commercial Law.
