Get your visiting cards printed at the ial in question Avas a plea for honest Republicanism and was devoted to hauling mugwumps of the Upper Des Moines kind over the coals. That such sentiments should he advertised abroad as coming from our mugwump co-tem is a little bit amusing to us. It was learned by telegram this morning that the house and barn of William Doering, Avho lives two and one-half miles Avest of Burt, were consumed by fire last night. Five horses perished in the barn. Everything was lost including all farm machinery. Mr. Doering was away at the time being married. We are not acquainted with any further particulars in regard to the fire. The Independence Bulletin-Journal urges as one reason for the late consolidation of the Bulletin and Journal that there is not room in Buchanan county for two papers of the same school of politics. We have repeatedly pointed out the wisdom of a consolidation of the U. D. M. and Courier for the reason that AA'hatis true of Buchanan county is more than true of Kos- RKVUKLICAN office. We have recently received a new supply of type and are prepared to do the linest quality of job work of all kinds. Our columns of county correspondence keep pulling up all the time. We have set our stakes to get out the best all around local newspaper published in northern Iowa. D. D. ToAvnsend lias just received a fine young COAV and calf of the Red Polled breed.

F. llowell a cattle lealer of Ilumboldt,, who Avill take possosion this week. -Mr. HoAvell Avill operate the farm and AVC understand Avill engage in the stock business. The well case has been continued until the 'next term of court on motion of Mr. Stephens himself. We understand that Mr. Stephens expects to sink the Avell deeper in the meantime. This undoubtedly means a settlement satisfactory to the city in the end-. Those Avho have read The Hoosier Schoolmaster Avill be interested in seeing and hearing Chaplain Lozier when lie comes. The Chaplain is the original Bud Means of that story. It was from him that the author of The IIoos- ior Schoolmaster took his character of Bud Means. We have been reproducing lately some of the tariff pictures published in the NCAV York Press. The press i doing a good work for the Republicai party and the American policy of pro tection. The tariff pictures contains lots of argument put up in a comprehensive and convincing form. suth. Kossuth county is not large enough to support tAvo papers of the same shade of politics. Give us more room and less Democratic newspapers. Company F. was publicly inspected by Col. Boutin last Friday night. The inspection took place in the court house hall and the toAvnspeople turned out in full force to witness the inspection. Capt. Cooke put the boys through the setting up exercises according to the revised tactics, and followed with a drill in the company movements anil a portion of the manual of arms, after which the inspection took place by the Colonel. As far as we can ascertain, the Colonel was very well pleased with the boys on the whole and Company F will probably stand as high or higher in the regiment than last year. The article on the first page of this issue, under the caption, "A False Attend the Farmers' institute next week—Wednesday and Thursday, It looks like an amicable settlement of the well matter would be made yet.

The regular meeting of W. C. T. U. AA'ill be held at the Reading Room Friday afternoon, March 13th, at 8 o'clock. We made a mistake in Mrs. Cleary's ad last week.

We give it space in the REPUBLICAN, there being a possibility that it might serve in helping to correct any false impressions which may have gone out as a result of the Duquque special, \vhich appeared in the Iowa State Register. As an institution in Avliicli both farmers and business men are interests*!, AVB are glad! to let the State Business Men's Association speak for itself- and give it a chaoace to appear in its-toe light. J. I). Starks, Avho has been living in town during the past year, has arrived! at the conclusion since tshe Boies corn discussion, that farming pays, and has has decided to move back> on his farm south of Irvingtion. He declares his intention of planting same corn this ear inasmuch as "it is the most prolit- •vble of all the cereals," and says that le has in times past found corn raising o proiitjable that he ha* frequently ented land in addition to his own 'arm, liked a man to do the Avork, paid x crop rent of one third, raised corn and made money. Mr. Starks paid up for the Ilisi'ur.LiCAN a year in advance. Saturday night was not a bad night and yet less than a half dozen people turned out for the union temperance meeting which Avas to have been held at the M. E. church. The meeting Avas called for the "purpose of selecting del egates to the meeting of the- State Temperance Alliance, Avliicli is now in session at Des Moines.

If the editor of the Algona Courier gets excited on the bicycle question again and talks about "shooting the bicycle," he Avill have the L. A. W- on us track—not the law exactly, but the League of American Wheelmen. The citizens have a right to object if the the bicycle club Avas adapted. The club Avill bear the title of "Algona Cyc- lers." Any cyclist over 14 years of age Avill be eligible to membership, but no one not a member of the- League of American wheelman Avill be .entitled to the privilege of either voting or holding office in the club. The constitution, committee Avas continued for another Aveek and Avill report on the by laws next Monday night. The club is to be organized next Monday evening and officers elected and it is hoped that every wheelman in town Avill try and be present at the meeting which Avill be- held at the REFUULICAN office. Chas. Gray Camp, Sons of Veterans, have been so fortunate as to secure- Chaplain Lozier for a date at this place sometime during th& last Aveek of this month. The Chaplain is so Avell known in G. A. R. circles that the simple announcement of his, coming ought to be sufficient to bring every old soldier in town out to hear him. The Chaplain's entertainment Avill partake more of the nature of a monologue than a lecture, consisting of scattering reminesceiices riding on the sidewalk becomes a nuisance, and it will be one of the objects of the bicycle club just organized to ___________ ^ prevent its members from making their I ot tjie wai>) i miaor() us and pathetic rec- use of the sidewalk for riding purposes itationS) i u - s own inimitable stories and objectionable to the general public.

John Field has made a trade with' an Illinois party by which he becomes the owner of a four-year-old Jack.

Mi\ Johnson claimed that his father-in-law and other members of his wife's family had alienated $1,000 worth of his wife's affections,. properly belonging, to himself, and brought suit against the old gentlemaru for 'that amount. The jury brought ins a verdict in favor oft the defendant. The Knights of Pythias lodge of this place has been invited to institute th-a new lodge at Bancroft next Friday light. The boys were only too glad to vccept the invitation and will go up on the four o'clock train -next Friday evea,- ng,. taking the goat, and all necessary paraphrenulia along with them. The new lodge at Bancroft will start out with twenty-seven, members, mostly young men and there is no reason why it should not prosper and become the most popular lodgs in town. Doc Daley arrested a party yestesday afternoon by the name of Eniest Laoni er, who is wanted in Fairuault county Minnesota, for stealing a stereoptacon The fellow inquired at the post office for his mail, when Doc was promptly notified and sooa. had his man. Sheriff \ Donovan, of Fairbault county was immediately telegraphed, and catae down on the seven o'clock freight irom the north. The 1'%11'ow stole the stereopti- can early in the winter and went into the "magic lantern" business, giving shows at t'ae school houses around through the country, but finding this very unprofitable, he quit the business several weeks ago and hired out to C. E. Walkev, proving a very efficient hand. Hot left Mr. Walker several days ago and engaged to work for Jos. Mathers during the summer. 'When arrested yesterday he gave his name as St. John. Mr. Mathers will have to look for another hired hand. Smith, of Ramsay township learned a" lesSSfli at the court house yesterday afternoon whicV will Cost him not far from $500. He was indicted by the grand jury last fall for strik- ever for the assault. Wagner, who is scarcely more than a boy, was feed* ing a threshing machine at the time and Smith, who was pitching bundles on the table, imagined that Wagner was pushing the bundles off onto the ground, which in reality was not the case. Without a word of warning he struck the boy over the head with his pitch fork, breaking the handle like a pipe stern. The young man was rendered insensible, and was laid up for several weeks as a result of the blow. He now gets $<500 damages, and in addition to the damages, Mr. Smith is taxed with a line of $75 and all the costs of the case. ' ! Court is still in session Avith a number of casses yet to be heard. The well case, contrary to expectation, has been continued xintil the next term of court. The suit of Dingley & Moffatt vs Mattern, resulted in favor of the-defendant. Geo. E. Clarke appeared foir Dingley & Moffatt and J. W. Sullivan assisted by Mr. Wade, of Iowa City r for Mattern. The case of Ralph Johnson of Bancroft, vs his father-in-law, K. Elman, occupied the court Saturday and Monday. Johnson sued for $1,000 damages fo» the alienation of his wife's affections. Geo. Clarke was attorney for plaintiff and W. B. Quarton for defendant. TPie plaintiff got no damages and had topay the costs. The State of Iowa vs M. B. Smith was settled yesterday, and the township of LuVerne ct al, vs- the Independent school district of Corwith is being heard to-day. Corwith appropriated some eight sections of Kossuth county land for the purpose of enlarging the borders of the Corwith Independent school district—hence the trouble. Clarke is attorney for the plaintiff in this case and Bradford for the defendant. Harvey Ingham was very conspicuous on the street corneas all day Monday while the polls weve open. Harvey spends a very large par,tof his time on the street corners, but he was unusually conspicuous last Monday. The secret of it all was, Harvey was not pleased with the fact that Gardner Cowles was .running for school director and he was ; conducting a campaign- against Mr. Cowles after his usual method of going to Avar. We are unable ta explain why Mr. Cowles' election; came so near to being unanimous unless it' was due to the fact that the editor-of the U. D. M. and one or tAvo other, men who are put up according to the same plans and specifications upon whick he is constructed, were engaged in. thowing mud, with no other excuse for the action than the fact th'ut an opportunity was offered by the fact of Gardner's candidocy, to wage a little petty personal warfare for the statisfaction of 3ome ancient grudge.. With: so many good men in the field it was not-to be expected that any one of them would have any great preponderance of votes, but the other gentlemen Avere unfortunate in not having the benefit of Harvey's opposition. Mr. Cowles received within eighteen of as many votes as Mr. Reed, Avho was running- to till the vacancy, and who had no- opposition. He received four-fifths of all the votes cast. It is seldom that so good an opportunity is afforded fw sizing a man up. A Cough .Syrup That Can ISo Kelie<l Upon. Beggs 1 Cherry ©ough Syrup gives wonderful satisfaction wherever it is tried.
