THE CITY ELECTION. A delegate convention of the Republicans of Algona was hold at the court house hall last Saturday evening, in accordance with the call published last week. C. M. Doxsee was elected chair* man of the meeting and J. W. Bnrtlett secretary. The result of the convention was the following ticket, which was elected straight, with one exception: For mayor L. A. Sheete, for treasurer C£ M. Doxsee, for solicitor S. S. Sessions, for assessor G. It. Lamson. After the Republican ticket had been arranged the Democratic blow-out was called to order in the auditor's office and D. S. Ford was nominated for treasurer, J. W. Sullivan for solicitor, and C. D. Pettibone for assessor. There being no democrat resident within the incorporation big enough to run against Dr. Sheetz no nomination for the office of mayor was made. All the Democrats voted for the Doctor and he managed to wiggle through. A better selection for Mayor could not have been made. Not only was the honor unsought, but it was feared that he would not accept the nomination. His conduct of the office will bear out the wisdom of the nomination. Below we give the election returns by wards. nt and made telling speeches. With uch consecrated men as these, and many others, working in this cause, acked by thousands of the best busi- icss men of both Europe and America, vs well as the ministers and Christian eople everywhere, this comparatively new institution is bound to be one of he greatest christianixers of the age. Imall towns all over the state, as well ,s the larger ones, are taking hold of his work and making a pleasant, lome-like place for the boys. Where t is run on business principles it is no more a question of experiment. Shall we of Algona be behind in this matter? The weather is fine in this part of he state; there has been some rain ince I came here. No snow in this ection now. Respectfully, D. D. TOWNSEND. iurlfngton, iowa, Feb. 23, igni. CANDIDATES.

Mr. Cleary succeeds Mr. BIossooi in the first ward while Mr. Blossom, who has lately moved over into the third ward, succeeds Mr. Dormoy from that ward. The attitude of the council on the well matter will thus remain unchanged The election is a complete vindicatioi of the outgoing administration, ant we take the election as another evidence that public sentiment has beer all along right where we said it was—with the council. An amusing incident of the election was Mr. Pettibone's manifesto to the Democrats that /he would not figure as a candidate foi the office of assessor on a "mongrel' ticket. This announcement 'was made by means,of handbills and issued a the ninth hour, leaving the party of Thos. Jefferson and J. W. Ilinchoi without a candidate for the office o: .•assessor. State Convention Y. 11. C. A. . Editor JRcpullicun: If you will per mit me to use a few lines in your col urons, I would like to speak of an or .gauization which is.perhaps second to none., outside of the evangelical church as a civilizer and christianize!*. I refei to the Young Men's Christian Associa tion. This organization has just clos ed its 21st annual state convention ii this city. There are today in Iowa 25 earnest Christian young men who are spending all their time and energy trying to up lift the fallen and christianize non Christian young men. There are al ready completed or in process of con struetiou, live Y. M. C. A. building which will cost not less than $300,OOC when completed. There are about 2( associations in the state with a mem bership of about 13,000 young men, bu there are in the state of lowatoda; 250,000 young men, 90 per cent, o whom belong to neither church or Y M. C. A. Thousands of these ar away from fathers and mothers and ex posed to all kinds of temptations. It is the special object of this iustitu tion to make pleasant places for, and endeavor to christianize these unfortu nates. It is doing a wonderful work in this direction in this country and Eu rope, and within the last few yean many are being organized, and doing excellent work in heathen lands. To day there is scarcely a city of any im portance in this country which does not have one of these associations hence, a home where every young man is welcomed, regardless of his condit ion. It has been a great pleasure fo: me to have the privilege of attending this convention. It convened Wed nesday, February 18th and closed Sun day, Feb. 22nd. There were in attend ance over three hundred young men nearly all from abroad. It is almost a waste of time and material to say tha we were royally entertained.

JIaun moves onto his own farm n Burt this week. We are sorry to ose him from Fenton, but what is our os8 is Hurt's gain. Lewis Ilabel moves onto the Buell farm this week. A SUGGESTION. A large number of sub-directors have signed a petition for county uniformity of text-books, but we find there are not quite as many signatures as the new law requires. Those who were familliar with the work done in the country schools eight years ago, before Mr. Wilkinson—then County Superintendent—secured a uniformity of text-books, and are familliar with the work done there to-day, will not hesitate to say that one of the prime causes .of the vast improvement found there has been this same uniformity. And this might still continue were it not that the Boards in some townships are already changing because they feel that better books are made now than were made eight years ago, and that they can be bought for less money. We believe in uniformity of textbooks for Kossuth county. We believe that better results will be obtained from uniformity than from non-uniformity, and we suggest that the Boards of Directors wait another year before changing books. By that time other counties will have tested the new law, and we believe our own sub-directors will have seen the need of signing the required petition, thus giving the people a chance to express an opinion by ballot on this important subject. BERTHA CAREY, Co. Superintendent. Will some of the algebraists of this county arise and give us the solution of the following: x2 + y = n. x + y2 = 7. Find the value of x and y. Inspection will readily give us the answer. Solve according to simultaneous quadratic equations. Ye Normalites, come forth and show yourselves. TO BE SURE !

WESLKY. Special Correspondence. WESLEY, March 3.—Geo. Hill, of Hawarden, was here at the funeral of his father, also the rest of the family from other parts of the state. We noticed Joe Iloffer, of Prairie township, moving, Monday; onto his farm over in Hancock county. The billiard hall which was located south of the L. W. Ash , black-smith shop was moved across the street onto the Bacon lot last Monday. The tariff queston was well handled out at the Kernan school house last Monday evening, and it was decided that the tariff side carried. Some talk of more stores starting up in Wesley in the near future. Still there is room. Meetings are held every night at the M. E. church by Elder McBride and we hope that the people will receive much benefit therefrom. Mr. B. B. Daggett, of Mason City, is spending a few days visiting in Wesley. We notice C. E. Olson went east Tuesday, for what we don't know, but something unusual may transpire, he may bring home with him a helpmate, who knows. Gray Bros, are busy buying cattle and hogs at present. Give them a call those that want to sell. The election of Wesley Independent school district will be called next Monday to vote at annual meeting for a new director and transact other important business. Shall we make calculations for an additional teacher and more school room? There is some talk of the Farmers' Alliance buying out the F. M. Butts store. It would be a good plan for them and a help to Wesley. L. R. Hiltz who has been off on a visit to Boone for some weeks, is back again and is the same as usual. OBITUARY. Died, J. V. Hill, of Hancock county, February 28th, aged 74 years, 7 months and 21 days. Deceased was born in Ohio in 1817. In 1855 he moved from his native place to Iowa where he has since resided. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. H. G. McBride on Sunday at the Wesley M. E. church and the remains were laid away in the Wesley cemetery. There was a large attendance at the funeral. Seldom does a death occur in a community which comes to so many people outside the home circle with such a sense of personal bereavement as did the death of Father Hill. Many a life is pure and good and worthily well beloved in the home whose loss is scarcely felt outside, but the going out from our midst of this strong yet gentle and kind-hearted man comes as a calamity to the whole wide circle of friends and acquaintances with whom his many- sided nature had come in contact. For those who were blessed by the daily sunshine of his presence little can be said. Their sorrow is far too deep for words. But if any human help can reach the hearts bowed down with grief it must surely be the sympathy of other hearts deeply touched by the same sorrow. While Mr. Hill's home was the sacred center of his affections, yet his large and sunny nature overflowed all bounds and bawght sunshine and cheer to many a borne besides his own. And bis life was a living refutation of the idea that an ideal home is not compatible with the largest interest in social life, a keen and intelligent appreciation of the culture and progress of the world, and a practical charity thattoofc cognizance of need and suffering ev* erywhere. The frank, genial face we shall see no more, the generous hand will never again be outstretched to aid and to sotnfort, the sunny heart has passed beyond all claims of friendship and love, but who shall say that he does not still live among us?

The Red River Valley of Minnesota and North Dakota has never had a failure of crops. It produced 30,000,000 bushels of wheat besides other cereals in 1800. Farms can be had on the crop plan, or long time cash payments. It is not an uncommon thing to pay for a farm from the proceeds of one crop. It has all of the advantages of an old country in the shape of school, church, market, postal and railway facilities, and all the chances of a new country in the way of cheap lands, rich soil, and increase in values. It is one of the most fertile and promising regions in America not yet fully occupied. In the rush to the far west, however, this rich valley baa been overlooked. It has room for a million more people. . Write to ' . F. I. wmWBY, st, Part, fox particularo.
