Who comes next? The 1 Republicans of the third ward! held tfoeir caucus Saturday evening,, and remomiuated Fred Dormey for alderman. Willis Hallock, P. L. Slagle and C. Bl Matson were chosen as delegates to the city convention. The Courier is dead sure that Bro. Kyle, the' new Senator from South Dakota, will vote with the democrats. The Courier is always sure ®f everything. The editor of that pajjtr ia of a very sanguine temperament. We publish this week a shout sketch of the lives-of Josiah and Hannah Goddard, fathejr and mother oK' A. L. Goddard of this place, whicft should have appeared in the last issue, but it was received too late for publication. "There is n& royal road to wealth and comfort shut against tiny farmer, but those who snub the possible ways or refuse to enter them may not thrive."— "Tama Jim" Wilson. Democratic organs please quote that in substantiation of Gov. Boies. The story is told on one good .democratic brother SB Kossuth county, ibat he got possession of a copy of the St. Louis Globe Democrat and was surprised to find that paper-going back on the principles of the democratic party. There is no politics iu a name. Elsewhere we publish a notice for a leeting of the farmers of Portland owhship for the purpose of organizing n Alliance. JLet the Portland farmers make a plain expression in favor of n'ohibition. The salvation of the pro- libitory law vests with the farmers of owa. Ilinchon had nothing further to. say ast week on the Subject of reciprocity. The Chicago Herald failed topuEthe .tring last week. The string will be Milled later on, however, and the iead- rs of the Courier will then be given mother exhibition of an acrobatic-per- 'ormance. Emmetsburg Reporter: Mr. J. B. Williams is a new comer and is living upon a rented farm in Great Oak ;ownship. He informs a representative of this paper that after paying a a cash rental of $250, he would clear about $500, besides his living and seed for the year.

He was taken to Independence Monday by his father and brother. He is about 20 years old, and was at one time formerly an inmate of the asylum, but had so far recovered as to come home. C. D. Creed came near having serious trouble Monday while driving his well fed nag. The latter stepped a trifle too high and got one leg over a tug, which was the signal for a break to run away Mr. Creed brought his fiery steed back on his haunches and his sou Austin, who was with him in the cut- ter, jumped out and siezed the animal by the bits. The only damage was a broken thill. W. C. Danson went over to Garner Monday, on business connected with the late Corwith episode. He return* ed to Algona today. We understand that the case has been postponed until the next term of court. The temperance meeting last Sunday evening was not quite so well attended as had been hoped. The weather was extremely disagreeable which kept a great many at home who would have otherwise attended. Interesting papers were read by Mrs. Barr and Mrs. Ingham. A number of the tillers of the soil were in town Saturday and renewed their financial allegiance to the REPUBLICAN. Thanks, gentlemen. Life is more worth living after your visits. Now just speak to your neighbors and call their attention to our farm department—a feature possessed by no other paper in the county. Franklin County Recorder: The citizens of Algona have raised about $500 by subscription for the benefit os Co. F of the 6th regiment I. N. CJ. The boys of the company express themselves as extremely gratified at the liberality and public spirit shown by their townspeople, and the company will doubtless now be better than ever. Father Rosswinkel, who was laboring in connection Father Nichols, in the latter part of last week, delivered a lecture in the Court House hall Sunday night, which was very highly complimented for its ability by those Avho heard it. His theme was Woman. He is not favorable to the entension of the suffrage to the gentler sex. A public inspection of company F. will be held at Court house hall, Friday evening Marc&, 6th, by Col. Boutin of the Gth. Regiment. Everybody is invited to be present and witness the inspection. Extra drills will be held by the company, at 7:30 P. M. Thursday Feb. 26th', and Tuesday and Thursday March 3rd, and 5th. Rev. C. Nolte, who has been on a large farm near Corwith the past season, had an auction safe last week, disposing of most of his* property. He was on a rented place. Mr. Nolte has moved his family to Algona, where ihey will remain indefinitely, the Elder expecting to take work in the ministry of the Free Methodist clhirch. The G. A. R. Bean supper last Fri- dhy evening was a success, if the amount of patronage received is any criterion. The hall was crowded; it seemed like everybody in town was taking supper there. The net receipts of the supper were about $70. The-occasion was om» of interest and pleasure for all who attended, as G. A. R. Beau suppers always are. At the marriage of John Jacob Astor Jr., of New York, and Miss Ava Willing, of Philadelphia, which took place in the "Quaker City" last week, gifts amounting in value to over $2,000,000 were presented to the yanng couple. These gifts will go a long way toward lightening the necessary expenses of tha young couple during their first year of'housekeeping. On yesterday occured the marriage of Mr. John O. Starks ami Miss Cora M. Raney, at the residence of John D. Starks, in this city, the Baptist pastor officiating. The groom is the second son of our esteemed townsman, and the bride is a member of a well known and esteemed family, old' residents of the county. The young couple will live on a farm in Minnesota. The best wishes of friends and relatives go witli them. A Des Moines youth worked a good one on the drop-a-nickel-in-the-slot rna- 'ehine recently. He tied- a string to the nickle and after getting his package from the machine, pulled out the nickel and dropped it in again, and so on. The boy was arrested 1 and arraigned upon the charge of tlieft but was discharged by the court upon the grounds that there was nothing in the directions upon the machine to indicate that the nickle was to>be left there. The Ladies' Church Building Society of the Baptist Church will meet tomorrow afternoon at two o'clock in Miss Cramers' rooms over Setchells' milli nery store and all the ladles in town are invited to meet with them. A reception committee consisting of Mrs. Pride Mrs Ilofius, Mrs. Robinson snd Mrs. Dansonwill make everybody welcome and guarantee a pleasant time. A fifteen cent snpper will be served at 5.30 in the evening to which the gentlemen will be allowed to come. Everybody is invited. Peter Slagle received a letter last week from his father in Indiana stating that the old home hacl burned down. A curious coincidence ^n connection with this fact is that Mr. Slagle had dreamed for three nights in succession that the old house had burned down, and when the letter came lie told the rest of the family, before it Jiad ever been opened, the news it contained. We don't believe in dreams, bufc this is one of those coincidences that are always happening and that are worthy of mention. The Normal School entertainment last night was very well attended, when the disagreeable state of the weather is takeii into consideration. A mock session of the Continental Congress was presented by the boys of the school in the coaiume of 100 yeara ago, and the Declaration of Independence was read and adopted. An Essay introductory to *he Congress was first read by Miss. Wallace. The club swinging by Messers Reed Taylor and Krucbek was well executed. Following the club swinging was-a select reading by Mr. Howard and tJien a flag drill by the "Daughters of the Regiment." The girls were costumed and made a very pretty spectacle on the stage. Among the musical features of the program was a solo by Miss Fahnestock which was encored. The Normal School is in a very prosperous condition, with every indication of increased prosperity. The Republican party of this county has reason to congratulate itself that Ilauvey Ingham is traveling around in the east, seeing the country and getting bis eyes open. If he stays in the east until spring he will probably come back a pretty good Repdblican. In a letter to the Upper Des Moines last week he tells about the pottery works at Trenton, N. J., which turns out one fourth of the pottery demanded by home consumption. This country now manufactures about one-half of the pottery that it uses, and the American article far superior to the English that whereas American makers used to copy English forms and trade marks now the English copy ours. Harvey thinks there is a future in this country for £he crockery business. He didn't support the measure very enthusiastically, during the campaign, that has given the American manufacturer some encouragement to make plates. Travel is a great educator. We clip the following from the last issue of t«he Emmetsburg Reporter, noting thafc all that it says about electric lighting applies with equal force to Algona: "Emmetsburg will make a great mistake if • it does not make an extra effort to put in an electric light plant during the present year. Electric light is what is needed to advertise us as a growing, enterpising city. It can be secured without any cost to the city. Individuals enterprise will put in the plant if they can secure a franchise from the city, and a guarranty of a certain number of lights. That the required number of lights can be secured, there is hardly a doubt. There are a number of business houses in town whose kerosene lights cost them from fifty to seventy-five dollars a year, and with electzic lights the expense would be no greater. At Mason City the cisst of electric lights for private houses is less than kerosene, and it can be made so here if enough are taken." THE CITY ELECTION. Interest Is beginning to be felt in the city election to occur next Monday, but it is too early yet to say who the candidates will be. Among those who are spoken of for mayor are J. R. Jones, the present incumbent, A. A. Call, Dr. L. A. Sheetz, Col. R. H. Spencer, O. E. Palmer, 13. F. Reed, and Capt. P. C. Bailey, among the republicans, and Aldermen J. F. Nicoulin and J. W. Ilin- chon, among the democrats. It is characteristic of thesituation,however, that nobody appears to be looking after the office, and it will take the formal nominations, probably, to bring any of these gentlemen to the front. The present talk is that the counciliuen whose terms expire will stand the best chance for filling the vacancies. The third ward republicans have already renominated Mr. Dormoy. The only issue that has been talked very much and the only one defined by the action of the mayor and council is tfeat regarding the well controversy. The mayor and council were unanimous in their action, and there seems to be 'little chance for anything but unanimity among the voters, except as to such few as may be controlled by personal motives, or who may have a pecuniary interest beyond that which tney have as tax payers. The action of the contractor, Stephens, in carrying his case- into the courts before the well wa» tested awakened a suspicion, which the- test of the well has confirmed, that the- town was going to be forced, if possible, to pay for something it had not bargained for. The feelings of candidates who may be put up will likely be inquired into before many votes are cast. The republican caucus in the first ward will' be held Thursday evening, those of tlte- second and fourth wards on Friday evening, and the convention Saturday n%ht, and probably by Sanday night toe democratic program will practically be made up. The present is a time wl*«n the city administration should havs the benefit of our best business men. The water works should be inaugurated with such success, and the taxes imposed for their construction and maintenance should be used with such fidelity that other enterprises involving heavy burdens of taxation, iwhich must come to the front in the "future if Algona is to keep up with the procession, wilinot be repudiated with disgust on account o,f any sorry experience in the year 1891. This is of more importance than any personal or political consideration that can be named. Josiah ami Hannah Uoddard. Harvey Ingham tells in a letter to the Upper Des Moines last week about a rooster which he saw in New York City worth $200. Will he please tell us in his next letter about the hens they have down there and if they lay eggs in the winter tima. Since the agricultural editor of the Courier first informed the public of the general disposition of liens to quit laying in the winter time, we have found great pleasure in pursuing the study of hens and should like further light upon the habits of the eastern fowl. The Newton Journal says that another land shark is abroad, and our G. A. R. men should look out for him especially. The swindler is a smooth talker and comes pretending to secure dates for a soldier's history. The questions asked are answered cheerfully by all and as correctly as possible. After the information has been written out the unsuspecting informant is requested to sign it, being assured that it is only wanted as authority for publishing. After a few days those interviewed are surprised to find their signatures to a contract agreeing to take a book. A memorial service in honor of Gen. Serman will be held under the auspices of the Gi. A. R. next Sunday at the Congregational church at 2:30 p. in. The Woman's Relief Corps, the Sons of Veterans and the public are cordially iiwited to attend. The Post will assemble at the G. A. R. Hall at 1:45 p. m. p. c. BAILEY, Commander. The Second Medal Contest. T&e second Medal Contest will be given at the Congregational church on Friday evening of this week, commencing at 7:30.

Josiah Godd&rd, Sr., was born April 5( 1792, in Worcester, Mass., where he remained until about 20 .years of age. At the commencement of hostilities in the war of 1812'he went to IJoston and entered the military service of the U. S., where he- remained a brave and faithful soldiar till the end of the war. Besides othea engagements of lesser note, he took an active part in the battles of Chtppewa and Lundy's Lane, under Gen. Brown, and the following September in.the land and naval battle of. Plattsburg and Lake Champlain. While in the service he made the acquaintance cf Miss Hannah Harris in the city of Detroit, Mich., to whom he was married in December, 181f>. After an honorable discharge, Mr. Goddard and his young wife commenced housekeeping in the town of Kirkland, Ohio. This was in 1816. In one year they moved to Detroit, and from there they moved to Oakland comity, Mich., then back to Detroit. In 1831 they moved to Battle CL'eek, where they remained till the ftvli of 1847, when they moved, to Rocki'ord, Illinois, but the following, spring moved to Greene county, "Wis.,. and in Otetober, 1849, settled at Fort) Atkinson, Iowa. Mr. Goddard was or- • ganizing sheriff of Winneshiek county. He located on the old Winnebago reservation, where he lived up to the tirae of his death, April 20, 1883, having lived to the ripe old age of 92. Mrs, Hannah Goddard, wife of Josi: ah Goddard, died at her residence near Ft. Atkinson, Feb. 12, 1891, aged 92 years two months and ten days. Mrs. Godilard, whose maiden name was Hams, was born Dec. 2,1798, near Ft. Geosrge, Canada, when she was 3 years of age her father died. Her mother afterwards married an American, who moved the family to Detroit. At the age of 15 the subject of this sketch made the acquaintance of and married Josiah Goddard, then an officer in the American army, who died after a long, eventful and happy married life of over 70 years. She was the mother of sixteen children—nine sons and seven daughters. Forty-eight grandchildren, 44 great grand-children and two great great grand-children now survive her,making 100 direct descendants now living. Mrs. Goddard was of Holland descent. She retained her reasoning faculties in a remarkable degree up to the hour of her death. At the age of 80 her eye sight was unimpaired and not a gray hair was in her head. Much of her time was spent in the garden during the summer months, often walking to the village and return 2i miles distant, without any apparent fatigue. Having always lived on the frontier, having passed through two wars and several Indian wars, her career has been more than an ordinary one.
