There is no bottom to the mud. The settlers still come to Kossuth. Capt. Bailey is sick in bed with La uri-ippe. E. F. Clarke, of Bancroft, was in ,own Monday. Mrs. Dr. Morse is visiting in Bancroft this week. B. M. Richmond of Bancroft was in he City Monday. Banker Daniels, of Bancroft, was in Algona yesterday. Forest Stough returned from Minneapolis this morning. O. L. Foss advertises his McKinley woolens again this week. About forty numbers were sold for the dance Monday evening. The spring term of the Normal school commenced yesterday. The covenant meeting of the Baptist liurch will be held next Saturday afternoon. "" A four year old boy of Sam Grove's, of Wesley, is very sick with typhoid fever. Prof. A. A. Sifert, of the Wesley schools is spending his vacation in Algona. Dr. Pride made a business trip to Des Moines last week, and was absent several days. Licensed to marry—John Engessen and Katie Klein, Otto Britton and Mary Oppodal. Miss Jennie Mclntyre is in Algona for a few days visit and to attend to business matters. Doc Leatherman is now driving four horses on the city bus. There is no bottom to the mud. There is to be a special meeting of the city council next Monday to attend to the matter of the tax list. Prof, and Mrs. C. B. Paul, of Whittemore, have been spending a portion of thier honey moon in Algona. Rev. F. W. Luce, of Clear Lake will occupy the pulpit at the Methodist church next Sunday morning. Dr. Pride has been confined to the house with La Grippe since his return from Des Moines last Thursday. The young ladies Foreign Missionary society will meet this week Saturday at 3'oclock with Mrs. Rev. Black. Mr', and Mrs. Thomas Robinson who have been spending the winter in the east, returned home Saturday night. The ladies of the Baptist church held one of their successful sociables with Mrs Dr. Pride last Thursday evening. And now the people are talking about an opera house; the REPULICAN has been talking about one for sometime. Mrs. F. L. Parish was called to Livermore Saturday by the illness of a sister. She returned yesterday. Her sister is still very sick. Prof Barslou and wife were the guests of Mr. and Mrs. Willis Ilallock Friday night, while on their return to school duties at Britt. S. S. Sessions returned from Des Moines Thursday night, where he went on business connected with his department of the state fair. Mr. and Mrs. C. E. Morehouse, Mrs. W. E. Jordan and Mrs. Samuel Mayne came down from Bancroft last Friday to hear Fabio llomani. The Sons of Veterans have placed several copies of Chaplain Loziers most popular songs, on sale at the post office Price 25 cents per copy. A short trip southwards last Fridaj and Saturday shows the season to be practically as far advanced in Kossutl County as in central Iowa. From the Eagle Grove Gazette we learn that Rev. Phil llanna expects to leave for his post at La Guayra Venezuela in about Sixty days. And will "the profound philosophei and political economist" of the Courier now tell us what he thinks of the sugai schedule of the McKinley Bill? Moses Godden, Levi Hodgson, II. B Ilallock and several other parties from Burt were in Algona on business yes terday. It was a good day for Bui- people. J. R. Jones has a big ad in the RE FUHLICAN this week that it will paj our farmer readers to peruse. T wigwam is still the place to buy farm machinery. Dr. Shore left on the noon train yes terday, for Des Moines, Where he think of locating permanently. We are sor ry that Algona is not enough of a citj to keep him. Ed Burcher lost one of his stallion Monday night. The animal was threi years old and was a recent purchase We understand that there was no insur ranee on the horse. Meetings will commence at the Con gregational church this evening and will continue indefinitely. H. G Smeade the evangelist will be here t'o the service Sunday evening and re main throughout the meetings. W. F. Carter received last J^iday a arge and latest improved refrigerator or use in his store during the summer. t is safe to say nothing will melt in- ide of its doors. Al Winkle has sold out his interestin he hardware business to Henry, who will continue the business at the old stand. Al has not yet decided on his 'uture business or location. E. A. Carter of Charles City is in Algona working on a job at the foundry which will occupy him' for several weeks. He will still talk life insurance inder sufficient provocation. At the meeting of the council Satur- lay night, S. S. Sessions was elected lerk for the ensuing year, A. L.Cheney was elected street commissioner and Doc. Dailey was re-elected marshal. And now Eagle Grove talks of organizing a Cycling club in the spring. :t is astonishing how soon some of the smaller town catch on to the Algona way of doing business and follow suit. Bancroft is getting lots of free adver- ising about the "tobacco chewing contest" business. It is going the rounds of our exchanges. An editor will get scooped occasionally for something to [ill up on. We publish this week an advertise- nent of the New Webster,—Webster's International dictionary. The world grows and dictionaries necessarily change more or less; buy a new Inter- lational. Charley Thompson of Whittemore lad his right leg broken above the cnee, last Thursday evening by a kick from a stallion. Dr. Morse was called and reduced the fracture. Mr. Thompon. is doing well. In our advertising colums last week we made the Cash Store at Burt say ;hey would sell 25 pounds of crackers :or one dollar, when it should have jeen 20 pounds. 20 pounds for one dollar is good enough. The way a good performance is cramped and marred by a small stage and fourth class stage fixtures was well illustrated at the Court house hall Friday evening during the performance of Fabio Romani. Revival services are being held at the free methodist Church this week and will probably be continued all of next week. The meetings are being conducted by Rev. C Cooke Rev. Anderson, and Rev. C. Nolte. O. L. Harper who has been employ- id in Nicoulin's photograph gallery !or the past nine months has rented Sundstrorn's gallery at Bancroft and gone into business for himself. He took possession of the plant last Monday. M. L. Clarke returned from Des Moines last Saturday where he went something over a week ago, to take care of his wife's uncle and aunt, who have been very low with la grippe. They are quite old people without any children. The Burt amateur dramatic company are billed for a performance in the Burt school house Friday night. They are to present—"Under the Laurels." Burt is putting on metropolitan airs and will have an opera house yet before Algona does. Geo Shelley of the Algona Marble works spent the greater part of last week in the vicinity of Whittemore telling the people apout his marble works. He has some very fine sample monuments on hand that it will pay any-one to inspect. Mr. Hoxie and Frank Winkle are contemplating the erection of a two story brick building on State street in the vacant lot west of the Courier office. This is a move in the proper direction. Algona certainly needs more and better business blocks. Some newspapers have very poor ideas of propriety. The Dubuque Herald records the death of three children by diphtheria under the heading "Hunting Heaven in a Hurry." The bereaved parents ought to buy a number of extra copies of that issue. The annual meeting of the M. E. Sunday School took place last Friday evening. The school has had a prosperous year under the supervision of D. B. Avey and the coming year will be superintended by Mrs. Dr Barr with Mrs. Gardner Cowles as assistant. A small crowd turned out to hear Chaplain Lozier at the Court House hall Monday night. Had it not been for the extremly disagreeable state of the weather he would have had a much better audience in all probability. The entertainment deserved a full house. Mr. and Mrs. Ed Meyer, who live a few miles east of Burt. lost an infant child last Saturday. They had been in town that day and the child was dead when they arrived at home and unwrapped it. It had always been healthy and the cause of its death is not known. A little trip down into central Iowa last Friday brought out some interesting facts. Feed of all kinds is very scarce down there, and how to get his stock over until spring is a problem with almost every farmer. Hay from northern Iowa has sold down there on the track for as high as $12.50 per ton, many farmers buying asfcigb Something that Will Pay To look at. Just read what follows and then reflect: McOOBMIOK Harvesting Mach. Co., Bstabl'd J. I. CASE Threshing Machine Co. A. A. COOPER, Iowa's Pioneer Wagon Maker, P. P. MAST & CO., Cultivators, Seeders, etc. JAMES SELLY & CO., Corn Planters, etc. D. S. MORGAN & CO., Clipper Mowers HEARST, DUNN & CO., Planters, etc. DALY MANF'G CO., Disc Pulverizers, JOHN DEER & CO., Plows, etc. J. R. JONES, 1831. 1843. 1840. 1843. 1850. 1834. 1860. 1865. 1854. 1870. After looking ,over the foregoing list of Manufacturers and Dealers, all of whom are represented by the man who pays the freight, you cannot fail to appreciate the advantages you can reap by buying your implements of the Oldest Implement House in northern Iowa. I represent the best goods made in each department. as fifty tons. Corn has brought as much as 70 cents per bushel and in some cases has been hard to get at that money. The Courier of last week advertises the biggest slaughter on sugar ever known. 20 pounds of fine granulated sugar for $1.00 by the barrel. Will the honest editor of the Courier be candid once and admit, that in so far as sugar is concerned the McKinley bill was all right? Everybody Avas pleased with Fabio Romani Friday night as we knew they would be. The company is strictly first class in every respect. The play is strong and every part was strongly presented. The sceneic effects were badly marred by the small stage and inferior stage fixtures. II. B. Ilallock of Burt was in Algona Thursday and Friday and had a lot of hand bills made, advertising the "Cash Store." Cady and Ilallock have the correct idea of using printers ink to good advantage and they will 1 succeed in business. Their ad appears in the REPUBLICAN regularly. We give our farmer readers this week an article copied from the 'Homestead under the caption "Unity in Alliance Demands." The Homestead is about right this, as it generally is. We commend the article, as it expresses the views of the REPUBLICAN and is in our estimation good advice. The following names have been drawn for the petit jury at the next term of court: Andrew Burt, Geo. Patterson, W. P. Giddings, Eugene Ford, O. E. Bliss. S. A. Dunn, F.' II. Paine, E. AV. Tennant, Mike Schields, Chas. Iligley, Ed Yernans, W. II. Fox, 11. II. Spencer, Martin Schoolman and August Krause. The .Gray Bros, of Wesley, have been en joying a visit from their brother William who is now in the pension office at Washington. Wm. Gray was once editor of the Grundy county Republican and likes to visit old Iowa occasionally. This office acknowledges a pleasant call from the brothers yesterday morning. Prof. A. R. Cornwall will lecture in the Methodist church one week from next Sunday at 7:30 P. M. under the auspices of the State temperance alliance. Monday evening at 7:30 he will speak in the Congregational church. All friends of temperance are invited to come out. Prof. Cornwall will speak from a purely nonpartisan stand-point. Regular meeting of the Algona Cyclers next Monday evening at the REPUBLICAN' office. All who wish to get into the club as charter members should see the secretary, Bert Edmonds, before that time. Charter members will be exempted from the payment ot dues this year. The meetings of the club will be held at the REPUBLICAN office until arrangements for a per- manant place of meeting cau be made. Marsh Stephens appeared before the city council Saturday evening and made several propositions relative to the city well and the matter of securing a better supply of water. It makes very little difference to the city of Algona how Mr. Stephens gets the "unlimited supply" of water, or where he gets it What the city wants is a sufficient supply for our system of water works. Mi- Stephens will probably commence op- perations upon the well within the nexi few weeks. The sentiment of Chaplain Lozier's entertainment Monday night was patri- itic throughout. He is just the man or a rousing G. A. B. campflre or a meeting of any kind where a little patri- ttic enthusiasm counts for anything. Che Chaplain is somewhat remarkable or his versatility on the platform, whether as a singer, a recitationist, or ,n eloquent and forcible speaker he is qually entertaining and equally a suc- ess. A new opera house in Algona is almost an imperative necessity and the people are commencing to understand t. There is talk among a few of our eading business men of organizing a yndicate and putting up a building that vill meet every requirement and be an irnament to the town. Keep the mater agitated until we have the opera louse. There are several good build- ng spots on State street and each one •light to be occupied .by a brick block, jet us have a building.boom. , A very small house greeted the gymnastic class exhibition at the Normal Hall last Wednesday evening. The ilass consisted of five young men who lolleetively and individually gave cred- table performance with Indian clubs. The opening piece of music was by the Misses Smith, with organ and vio- in, and was finely rendered. Mrs. 31ack and Mrs. Bowyer also sang a duet during the evening. Other pieces were sung by the Normal choir and these, witli the club swinging, made up the evening program. The ladies of the W. C. T. U. and the Beading Boom Association have arranged to hold a series of public meetings in the reading room. Invitations for the iirst—for which a good program has been prepared.—Will be given for Frfday evening of this week, April SKI. As the seating capacity of of the room is not great, different ;uests will be invited for each meeting. An offering of 10 cents will be expected of those who come and this will be used to increase the library fund and to aid in sustaining the reading room. The accidental falling of a hanging lamp in tlie kitchen at B. A. Palmer's Monday night set a lire which came near destroying his residence. The flames leaped nearly to the ceiling, but the prompt and heroic efforts of Mrs. Palmer and her mother, Mrs. Waterhouse, sufficed to extinguish them. A few articles of children's clothing, theii wearers having just been put to bed. were used to smother the lire, then a pair of Dick's pants had to go, and finally a heavy woolen blanket was sacrificed. The escape was a lucky one and the ladies are entitled to the greatest credit. The lamp had just been filled, and it was smashed into the smallest kind of bits. The carpet and iloor were badly scorched, Dr. Garlield left for Vinton last Saturday on a visit to some old time friends that he has not seen for forty years and he did not have time to pen an acknowledgement of Mr. Hinchon's little 'puff," as he was pleased to call it, The Courier quoted the Doctor as saying that an illiterate man could not learn to ride a bicycle. The Doctoi promises to make an explanation upon his return, and try and convince Hinchon that he intended nothing persona in what he said. He thinks that Mr Hinchon is not too illiterate to learn to ride, but that with patient endeavo and some one to teach him he migh learn to ride very "gracefully." O course Mr. Hinchon has not studied natural "philosophy" recently; but anj one of the thirty gentlmen inAJgona who are now riding, can teach him nough of "physics" to enable him to ide fairly well, which with his natural grace" will make him a "graceful" ider. At the meeting of the fair directors n Des Moines last week, Mr. Fowler, f Osceola, was elected director to take he place of Ballingale, of Ottumwa, ecently deceased. It was voted to mild an addition to the agricultural lall 64 x 68 feet, to build a new horse >arn, a new cattle barn with 24 'ouble stalls and a new office uilding for the superintendent f poultry and sheep. There is - some alk of a mile track, but that is proba- ly out of the question this year. The abulous prices asked for land adjoin- ng the fair grounds makes u new track Imost out the question. It would be lecessary to purchase additional land n case a mile track was put in. Since the last issue of the RBPUBLI- AN appeared, we have discovered that he Kickapoo doctor has not only so far •ained the .tolerance of the people of \lgona as to inflict his humbug upon he town, but that his Indians have njoyed the hospitality of Kossuth ounty ever since they have been here, iving in the court house and sleeping n the stage or in the jury rooms wherever their untutored fancy might dictate, If the people of Kossuth .ounty want the court house turned nto u hotel for the accommodation of an Indian medicine company, it is all ight, but we think they ought to know what use is being made of the public property. We don't know who is responsible for it all, but we think it an mposition upon the county to have the doors of the court house thrown open to a lot of greasy Sioux Indians when Jiey would have been objectionable juests at any of the hotels or restau- •ants in town. Now that it seems definitely settled .hat Mr. Stephens is to furnish the Jity an "unlimited supply" of water, it seems to us that the council would be warranted in seriously considering the extra expense of putting in a fountain at some convenient spot on state street, where man and beast might slake their thirst. Unless Mr. Stephens succeeds in getting more water the fountain will of course be entirely out of the question, with the supply we now have it is necessary to keep the stand-pipe full and corked up against the emergency of a fire. If sufficient water is obtained, and a contract is closed with the C. & N. W. Rail road to furnish water for their tank at this place, th.e pumps would necessarily have to be kept in motion a good share of the time, and the expense of a fountain would be summed up in the simple expense of putting one in. We have a costly system of water works, why not give the people some practical benefit from the system even if it does mean an extra expense to the city? The REPUBLICAN is in favor of a fountain. The Sagwa people are still here and selling more or less of their cure all med- ieines, but as yet we are to hear of any case's where the blind have been made to see the lame to walk or the deaf to hear. From a little personal experience with the Sagwa doctor himself, we are prepared to testify that he is anything but a gentleman, and that he is one of the most foul mouthed men that ever succeeded in getting himself before the public in any capacity. When as^ed to accommodate the Cliap- lain Lozier entertainment by taking his Sagwa hangers down from the walls at the Court House hall Monday night
