Madison Nelson of Milwaukee, adjustor for the Concordia Fire Insurance company, was in town last Saturday making a settlement of Mr. Howard's loss. It seems that the Concordia was only liable for the damage to the stock down stairs. The Germania also carried a risk upon the stock but the adjust or has not yet appeared to make a settlement. Mr. Howard has removed his stock to the old Spear building but will not reopen business until all his claims for insurance have been adjusted. The McGuire building, in winch the fair has just been held, has now been rented to the firm of French & Copeland, of Algona, who say that they will have a stock of groceries in there in two weeks, and that in the course of a few weeks more they will put in a general stock.

The building is now being fitted up for their use.— Livermore Gazette. We publish elsewhere an item from the Franklin County Recorder which will be of general interest to the people of Kossuth County. The Recorder accords Algona the honor of possessing the "champion liar of the universe." Our esteemed friend the editor of the Courier in his wild efforts to save Gov. Boies trumped up a story to the effect that the eleven Alliances of Franklin County had endorsed Gov. Boies New York speech. We advise Bro. Hinchon to start his stories next time on .alliances a little farther away from home The new church at Irvingtou will be formally dedicated on Sunday, February 8th. at eleven o'clock in the forenoon.

Regular services will be held every Sunday afternoon at three o'clock, by the pastor, Rev. Caldwell, of Livermore. Sunday school just before preaching. A cordial invitation is extended to all to be present at the dedication service. Mr. Shelly reports his business outlook for the year to be very encouraging.

"The Algona Marble Works" ought to become one of the permanent and paying institutions of the town. Below is an account of last week's fire as given by an exchange. Contrary to the low of optics the apparent size and importance of a small piece of news increases in magnitude as the The Ladles of the ft. tt. Society take pleasure in announcing that the books belonging to Unity Sabbath school, aiid for which it was especially indebted to Miss Hultiti have recently been placed in the Reading Room for the use of its E atrons, until such a time as they shall e needed in the Unitarian work here or elsewhere. Thanks are due Miss Hultin for this valuable addition to the literature of the Reading Room. Among these books, are works by the following authors. Edward Everett Hall, Bayard Taylor, Miss Alcott Trowbridge, Helen Jackson, G. L. Arthur, Hawthorne, O. Stoddard, E. P. Roe, J. K. Bolton and by Harriot Beecher Stowe and others, there are quite a large number of books that will especially delight the hearts of the very little ones. Mr Goddard in this issue of the REPUBLICAN estimates that it will require about 40 loads of manure to cover one acre of ground. Mr. Dorweiler in the Courier figures in the cost of manuring the ground as a necessary expense of raising corn. Mr. Dorweiler must have aninexhaustible supply of the fertilizing article to draw from. How .many farmers in Kossuth county manure their corn ground every year and how many loads of manure will it require to go over 50 acres of ground? It is almost amusing to note how hard the good Democratic brethein are put to it in their efforts to shield Gov. Boies and show that farming in Iowa don't pay. The average farmer does not manure his entire corn field, and ground properly manured will raise far more than an average crop. The Riverdale township assault and battery case came up before Esquire Taylor yesterday but was continued until tomorrow afternoon, owing to the absence yesterday of one or two important witnesses. Ed Haines, John Squires and Sam Squires are the defendants in the case, while John Mosier and Wm. Norris are the plaintiffs. It seems that the original assault was made by John Squires upon John Mosier. The various fathers, step-fathers and uncles and aunts of both parties soon took hand in the scrap and the fur ilew. By the time the fight was over everybody concerned was more or less battered. The fight occurred one evening about two weeks ago at the close of a lyceum which was held at the Matson school house in Riverdale township. The bone of contention between the parties seems to have been the affections of a certain young lady of Riverdale, for whose hand and heart John' Squires and John Hosier—two young Riverdale swains—were rivals. Squires not having succeeded in knocking Hosier's eye out in a figurative way to his entire satisfaction, determined to do it in a literal fashion, and make a public example of the fellow who had dared to step in between him and his heart's chief joy. The remainder of the story we have already related. Judging from the evidence brought out yesterday, it is probable that no trouble would have occurred had it not been for certain older heads who put the boys up to fight. It is a matter of regret that those older heads did not ;et a larger share of the punching that took place. FREE.

Promt of Corn (h-owing 1 Iowa. Ed. Republican: 1 do not desire to enter into a lengthy discussion in regard to the corn controversy, but I see some of the readers and patrons of the Courier have taken exception to my statements in regard to the cost and average price of. corn in Iowa. In my statements I think I endeavored to show that we could and did grow corn at a less cost than $8 per acre, also that we realized more than $7.88. One of the Courier correspondents enters the item of $1.00 as cost of manuring an acre of land for corn—this is a very low esti- . mate, as it requires at least 40 loads to the acre. But this item should cut no figure as the manure is worth at least 25 cents per load as u fertilizer to the land, and the farmer will get a good return from crops grown on manured land for at least three years following. Again, the amount of manure drawed out by the average western farmer is so small that if we were dependent upon it to keep up the fertility of our land, we would be very poor indeed. It is true that thousands of acres of Iowa land have been impoverished by continuous cropping witli wheat and flax, and to redeem that land we must resort to a rotation of crops, and clover and corn should be the principle crops, and all fed out on the farm. In reply to our friend P. J. Marty, I would say, I can establish the fact that the average price of corn in Iowa for a period of 20 to 30 years has been fully 42 cts. as stated by me. The only argument he sets forth to disprove this, is that I. am ignorant and am running a restaurant in Algona. lie is about as near the truth in this as he is in the average price of corn. Stick to the text friend Marty and let us hear what you know about Iowa as an agricultural state. The issue now in controversy is, is the Iowa farmer growing poor by growing corn and its products of pork, beef and butter? You other fellows, or as our southern friends used to say; "yoti'ns" took the ground that the Iowa farmers, as a whole, were losing money, and the state was becoming bankrupt by growing King Corn; you say what is true of corn is also true of all farm staples; you are endeavoring to show that Iowa is becoming bankrupt, which is not true. We are selling hundreds of millions of dollars worth of farm products every year and get the cold cash for them, and we have only just started on the road to prosperity. A few years hence and we shall produce enough corn, pork, beef, butter and other farm staples to feed all the people of New England. Our friend Dorweiler tells us he was prompted to write his letter by others, and, that he wants it distinctly understood that he is not a candidate for governor,—that he is only endeavoring to make it appear that the Iowa farmer is being impoverished by growing corn. For myself I will say I have no desire for oflice of any kind, it is honor enough for me to know that I am a citi/.en of Iowa, having "lived within her borders for the last 42 years. By long residence I have become sloughy attached to her and I repudiate the assertion that the Iowa farmer is being bankrupted by growing corn. A. L. GODDAKD. A Card of Thanks.
