Demorest Medal Contest tomorrow evening. Judge Cook, of Eagle Grove, is attending court. Rev. Faulstech, of Whittemore, was in town Monday. Get your sale bills printed at the EE- PUBLICAN office. Attorney Pangbur of Elmore was in town yesterday. Will Lacey was in Chicago the first of the week with stock. Mrs, G. E. Fuller has been allowed a pension of $12 per month. A species of influenza akin to la grippe is abroad in the land. Have you noticed our columns of county correspondence lately? There seems to be an unusual amount of sickness in town this spring. The Epworth League now meets on Tuesday evening,instead of Monday as heretofore. An infant child of Geo. Felds died Saturday morning. The funeral took place Monday. J. F. Lacey and son have purchased the "red elevator" and will do a grain and stock business. The letter from Mr. Townsend which appears in this issue came too late for publication, last week. The gold medal, at the masquerade ball last Friday night was awarded to Miss Mary Leatherman. J. C. Blackford will ride a Victor Safety bicycle next summer. The wheel came last Saturday. Forest Stough has a Columbia safety bicycle on the road, and Ed Murtagh has ordered a Union safety. J. R. Jones was elected one of the directors of the I. S. B. M. A. at the Cedar Rapids meeting last week. John Monarch has the bills out advertising a sale at his place southeast of Whittemore, Tuesday, March 10. W. J. Thackery who came to Algona last Fall from Illinois, moves onto the Ingham farm west of town this week. Company F has provided an orchestra which will discourse patriotic and other music at the inspection Friday evening. Judge Carr was unable to be here Monday on account of the sickness of his wife. Court did not convene until Tuesday. We would inform Mr. Hale that nothing stronger than a demijohn of benxine can be found around the REPUBLICAN office. All three Algona papers seem to be unanimous on one subject — put it down. They are all agreed that Algo- ua needs an opera house. An article on "Uniformity of Text Books" will be found in the Teachers Department this week. It is addressed particularly to school directors. The masquerade ball last Friday evening was not very largely attended, owing in all probability to the state of the mercury in the Thermometer. Doc Dailey complains of an excess of floating population lately. Two tramps were boarded at the expense of the city last night and sent on this morning. A report of the city treasurer will show between four and five hundred dollars of the general city funds on hand and $2500 of the water works fund. A Sherman memorial program was rendered in the Congregational church Sunday afternoon, as announced, by members of the G. A. R. Post at this place. D. D. Townsend came home Monday afternoon. He attended the Y. M. C. A. convention at Burlington and visited his old home in Tama county on his return. The Baptist ladies were well pleased with the success of their supper last Thursday evening. The new church fund was incresed to the extent of about $16. Thomas Daley will start with his family for Carthage Mo. the first of next week where he will make his future home. His household goods were shipped to-day. The man who picked up the other fellows mittens by mistake, in the post- office Monday forenoon will ..confer a favor on the other fellow by leaving them at the REPUBLICAN office. Col. Ormsby was elected mayor of Enimetsburg by the largest majority given any man for that office in years, Emmetsburg owes the honor to Col. Ormsby if it owes it to any one. Rev. Bowen will fill an appointment at Estherville next Sunday and there will consequently be no services at the Episcopal church in the morning with the exception of Sunday school which will be held at the usual hour, 10, A. M. March came in more like a lamb Ilian a lion. : E. C. Tuttle was up to Elmore feat week on business. Knights remember the regular meeting Friday evening. G. H. Peters returned Friday ftom his visit in the east. D. Rice was in Elmore last week on a visit to his daughter. Job work of all kinds at the REPUBLICAN office. Try us. The Money Barrel Coucert has been postponed for one week. Bert Edmonds sent in his order for two safety bicycles last week. Geo. Call is back from Texas for a short time to look after his business affairs in Iowa. The Young Ladies Foreign Missionary Society will meet with Mrs. Black, Sat. Mar. 7 at 3:38 P. M. The Normal School George Washington entertainment was repeated Monday night with some few variations in the program. The second audience was about as large as the first. J. R. Jones has an announcement in this issue of the Republican which will be of interest to every farmer in Kossuth county who contemplates purchasing any farm machinery this spring. Bancroft is to have a lodge of the Knights of Pythias. Some of the Knights here are anxious to go up and help a few of the boys through the tight places in the second and third. A. L. Goddard returned from Fort Atkinson, Winneshiek county, last Wednesday evening, where he went to attend the funeral of his mother. He found no snow at all in that part of the state. D. W. Arnold, of Waukegan, Illinois, lias been in the county the past two weeks looking after his farm near Burt. He returned home yesterday morning, after leaving $1.50 for the REPUBLICAN. J. K. Fill & Son have an ad this week and they certainly have a fine line of spring goods, for we have looked the stock over ourselves. Fill's prices are all right, the McKinley bill notwithstanding. Doc Dailey managed to get the water works through the cold weather of last week without a freeze up. There is a thin layer of ice next to the pipe on the inside but scarce enough to be worth mentioning. Jim Taylor, brother of Mrs. J. C. Blackford, is in Algona for a month or so. He is just back from Colorado, where he has been taking views the past two years. Mr. Taylor formerly attended school here. C. S. Blanchard of Elmore is in town this week attending court. He is enthusiastic about the land boom in the northern part of the County. Northern Iowa is about to have her day andKossuth County will be on liand. Two train loads of actual settlers from McLean county, Illinois, unloaded at Webster City last week. The people over in Illinois have probably not heard about the impoverished condition of the farming class in this state. This snow will prove a good thing for the poor farmers of Iowa, when it melts in the spring it will fill Iowa's great spongy subsoil with moisture against a dry season and make corn for the farmer at a loss of 67 cents per acre. It will be interesting to the wheelmen of the town to know that the state League meeting this year will be held at Newton June 16 and 17, $500 has been raised for prize purses and some interesting speeding events will take place. Died March 4th, 1891, Homer Hamilton, youngest son of C. B. aud Eva Hutchins, aged 6 months and 5 days. Funeral services will be held at the residence of Mrs. S. D. Hamilton, on Thorington street, Saturday March 7th at 2 p. m. Marriage licenses have been issued to William Doring and Mary Dettmau, Carl Miller and Fanny Staffaucher, J. C. Stark and Cora M. Raney, F. D. Soloman and Maude Thompson, Chas. Ostwald and Mary Berstedt, Nels Nelson and Agusta Knutson. The bachelor quarters of Myron II. Hare were, invaded by a party of his friends last Friday evening. The evening was spent in dancing, and a merry time was had. All felt Mr. Hare a good entertainer, and that he may expect them again in the near future. Capt. Cooke invites everybody to attend the inspection at the Court house hall Friday evening. The inspection will commence promptly at 8 o'clock. The spectators are asked to be present by 7:45 that everything may be quiet and orderly during the inspection. Joe Paxson, of Riverdale township, was receiving congratulations from his many town friends yesterday on the birth of a girl baby. Mr. and Mrs. Paxson have been married fourteen years, aud the advent of their first daughter occasions great joy in the household. Mr. Shelley, of the Algona marble works, requests us to announce this week that he now baa finished and set up in his shop on State street, next to Dr. Garfleld's office, soine half dozen monuments. Those contemplating the purchase of a stone are invited to call. Watch for Mr. Shelley's ad in the Ba- PUBLICAN. A two year old child of Mr. Bowman, who lives on the AnnJs place northwest of town, died the fore part of last week and was buried Thursday. The attending physician pronounced the disease with which the child died to be scarlet fever. Mr. Sullivan deserves some congratulation for the recognition given him in his election as city solicitor. He is the youngest lawyer in town and has made a good start in the direction of filling at some future day the high office of mayor of Algona. List of letters remaining uncalled for at the P. O. at Algona, la. for the week ending Feb. 28th, 91. Miss Clara Celltien, Charley Harwan, T. Kemmerer, Laurits Aurstem, Chas. Emanuel, W. B. Barslow, Chas. D. Smith, A. Schneider, Miss Mary Erickson, W. J. Miller, Miss Mary Newman. We have received a prospectus of the Clear Lake campmeeting for next summer, which will be held August 6th to 17th inclusive. Plans are being perfected for the greatest camp-meeting ever held on the Clear Lake grounds. For folder giving full particulars address the corresponding secretary, Rev. F. W. Luce, Clear Lake, Iowa. The Farmer's Institute, which was to have been held last week, was postponed until the 18th and 19tlb. of March. The severe weather of last week kept the farmers at home and made it impossible to hold the institute'. It is desired that all who can possibly do so should attend the institute. Matters of interest to every farmer in the county will be brought out and discussed in the program. Geo. Bowman and David Miller had a legal squabble before justice Thompson last Thursday. Bowman suecd Miller for some twenty odd dollars which he claimed Miller was owing him. The case was dismissed by judge Thompson upon the grounds that there was no cause for action. Geo. Clarke did the pleading for Mr. Miller and W. J. Sullivan figured on the otlter sideof the question. A union temperance meeting will he helct next Saturday evening at eight o'clock in the M. E. church, chiefiy for the purpose of electing delegates to the annual meeting of the State Temperance Alliance. There will be addresses on temperance, and all the people interested in it should be present. An invitation is extended to all. The Alliance meets in Des Moines next Tuesday evening, March 10. At the meeting in the Reading Room, on Friday last, Mrs. Hough read an original paper upon the growth of temperance sentiment which was highly appreciated by all. Mrs. Biglow a sister now visiting Mrs. Hough gave a select reading. Mrs. Finnel and Mrs. Fern favored the company with some good music. It was decided to hold a Public Library meeting in the Reading Room before many weeks. Brother Ingham returned to the seat of war last Friday. He appears to be in good health, and his usual agreeable spirits. He saw one rooster down' in New York City that sold for $300. This may sound a little fishy, but Harvey claims to have made a special study of the chicken question while in the east and we feel disposed to accept the statement. It must be mighty expensive to entertain a Methodist preacher down east. Court opened yesterday afternoon, Judge Carr presiding, and the case of Chas. Brunson vs Silas Roupe was called up and is being continued to-day. The parties had a misunderstanding about the sale of some hay. This session will probably be continued all next week as there is a very full docket. Among the more important cases to come up is the renowned Y-ease. Mr. Parker, of Spencer, is here to conduct the prosecution in that action. A close call from a disastrous fire occurred at the residence of George L. Minklfer Sunday morning. A friend stayed over night with them and he had slept up stairs, his bed being close te the stove pipe. In getting up in the morning he probably threw the covers toward the pipe and left them. A fire was started in the stove below and soon after the odor of burning cloth was smelled and going up stairs the bed was found on fire. Prompt work soon smothered the blaze. Nearly all that was on the bed was lost. Drs. Morse and Pride performed a very delicate but successful surgical operation last week in removing Mrs. J. F. Gilmore's right eye. From an accident when a child Mrs. Gilmore lost the sight of her right eye. The eye has lately caused her a great deal of pain and inconvenience and it become necessary to have it removed as the sight of the other eye was becoming seriously affected. The operation was successful beyond expectations and is a good testimony to the surgical skill of Drs. Morse and Pride. The city fathers met last night for the purpose of canvassing the election returns and talking over the well mat- ter, it was decided to go on with the well case and have the matter settled at this term of court. There trill be no back down upon the part 6f the city, and it remains for the court to decide whether Mr. Stephens is entitled to his money or not before he has furnished a well meeting the requirements of the contract. The vrell case will be the interesting feature of this term of court. A meeting of a number of the wheelmen around town was held at the REPUBLICAN office Monday evening for the purpose of organizing a bicycle club. Every one present at the meeting seemed to be highly in favor of organizing a club and a committee Was appointed to draft a constitution and bylaws for the organization. Another meeting at which every wheelman in town is urged to be present, will be held at the REPUBLICAN office on Monday evening next and the organization completed. There are at present about twenty five wheels in town and that number will be largely increased during the spring and summer. An organization will be to the interest of every bicyclist in town. Mr. O. F. Hale of St Joe sends a very queer problem to the Algona Courier. He supposes the editor of the Courier to be asleep and the editors .of the U. D. M. and REPUBLICAN coming into the shop and drinking the contents of Hinchon's demijohn. The problem proposed by Mr. Hale is, what portion of the contents of the demijohn did each get away with. This would appear at first sight to be an interesting problem but friend Hale made a big mistake in the premises. Hiuchon would never think of going to sleep without taking the jug to bed with him, and the prospect of Harvey Ingham's finding anything but empty demijohns lying loose around the 1 Courier office would be very slim indeed. Brother Phil Hann a of Eagle Grove was appointed U. S. Consul last week to LaGuayra,the principal seaport town of Venezuela. We congratulate Bro. Hanna, as the position is :i most desirable one. LaGuayra is the seaport of Caraccas, the capital of Venzuela and a city of 100,000 population. The climate is tropical, but the fierce heat to be looked for under the equator is moderated by the snow mountains of the vicinity. The consulate is at present filled by Gen. Bird, a rebel brigadier from Alabama. The salary is $2,000, but the fees of the office are a considerable addition thereto, while clerks do the routine work. Mr. Hanna expects to leave for his post of duty within a few months. Congressman* Dolliver is entitled to great credit for his successful efforts in behalf of Mr. Hamja. A Clear Lake "benedict rr had an ui-i : pleasant experience with White Caps one evening last week and now the White Caps are having an unpleasant experience with the law. It seems that the Clear Lake young man had married him a wife against the wishes of the bride's parents. He received several White Cap communications to leave the country but he decided to stay. lie was rudely awakened from his slumbers by the mob and compelled to dress at the point of the revolver.. A string was then put around his neck and he was led to the depot and when the train came in from the west he was placed on the rear platform of t;he sleeper and started for Mason City. All of the White Caps have been apprehended and it turns out that the leader is none other than the young man's father-in-law. The old gentleman will probably go over the road. We have no time foy the Algona Courier this week, after we have used up just enough space to call attention to the notorious disposition of that sheet to throw mud at its contemporaries and deal in a certain character of personalities that are wholly uncalled for. If the Courier editor expects a reply in his own kind he will be disappointed. We are not small enough for that kind of business; we are no animalcule. If friend Ilinchon is laboring under the impression that his references cause any commotion in the REPUBLICAN office he is greatly mistaken. Our slumber is undisturbed and as peaceful as ever while our appetite remains unimpaired. We are only interested in noticing how an editor is sure to bring himself into the general contempt of the public by resorting to such tactics. If the editor of the Courier derives any pleasure and benefit from his method of running.a newspaper, and watching every corner for an opportunity to make a personal attack on his contemporaries why it is all right as far as we are concerned, "Lay on MacDuff," we say. It is a real pleasure to enter into an argument with the Courier. The weight of the logic always presented in an argument by .the "profound philosopher and political economist" of the Courier is astonishing and furnishes the means for a splendid mental discipline to the man who has the hardihood to engage in a controversy with him. The readers of the REPUBLICAN will be interested to know how the reciprocity and tariff controversy between the Courier and REPUBLICAN is progressing on the other side and. so we quote from the Courier all it had to offer last week: "It would be an imposi- tion on our readers to reply to every nonsensical yawp that the REPUBLICAN Substitute emits, Life is too short to waste much time on such an object." There is very little consistency in the Courier's professed contempt for the "substitute" and the rest of the REPUBLICAN establishment. We occasionally are given the benefit of any amount of space in the Courier and again "Life is too short to devote to such an object." The Courier's estimate of the REPUBLICAN depends largely upon how near the editor of the Courier comes to being in the corner. The U. D. M. has patterned after the Algona Courier arid sneaked back into its hole from which it gazes forth in affected contempt upon the REPUBLICAN. We answered its whine that it had been misquoted and its political utterances misconstrued by theRKPUB- LICAN with a challenge to make a clear statement of its real position upon the tariff question and to place its own construction upon what it had to say. This challenge was published for two- consecutive weeks, but the Upper Des Moines has failed to respond. The REPUBLICAN has very little respect for an individual who does not have the courage to stand by his honest convictions. We are conscious of the fact that a clear and intelligible statement of its real sentiments inpon the tariff question would place the Upper Des Moines in an imbarasaing situation. It does not issue its real' sentiments on this subject in black and white to its REPUBLICAN readers, and at the same time it cannot declare itself to be in line with the REPUBLICAN party upon the tariff question without having its past record rise up and contradict it. Every one familiar with the Upper Des Moines knows its real position upon the greater questions divided the Republican and Democratic parties. We have no hesitation in repeating the charge which we have often made before, that the Upper Des Moines is-Teally Democratic at heart. We do not envy our Dodge street contemporary the figure which it can henceforth have no choice but assume before the public. With the whine that its utterance have been in- construed still ringing in the ears of the public, and with, our challenge to make a clear statement of its real position and to go on record; in black and white for its real convictions, still undiscovered, it stands before the Republican party of Kossutlv County in its real character Demorest Medal Contest. Owing to the sickness of one of the speakers last week the Demorest Medal contest was postponed and will take place tomorrow evening at 7;30 in the Congregational church.

The Algona Wigwam Begins to look like a place of business. From the amount of Machinery that is arriving daily, one is led to wonder when it can be used. But Jones he pays the freight to any station in the county, so that farmers in any part of the county can have the full benefit of the very low prices at which goods are sold. It is admitted that the Algona Wigwam is the most extensive implement house in the north west. 22-83
