He has lectured in every state in the Admission The Kickapoo doctor packed up Ms Sagwa and worm killer, and started Monday morning in search of a wormier community. His Sagwa businesshere was not a glittering success financially. They left some money behind them, besides a little "reputation," two or three Sagwaadvocates and a small quantity of medicine. Since the last issue of the REPUBLICAN appeared theis nightly powwows at the Court house assumed a more interesting character, the entertainment each evening consisting of a medley in which the virtues of Sagwa and the virtues oE the "RKPUBLI- CAN Editor" were the predominating features. Wednesday evening one entire farce was presented for our benefit. Not having been favored with the usual courtesies— complimentary tickets— for some reason or other, we were not very regular in our attendance upon the nightly performances of the company. Having a desire to hear the Sagwa doctor before the opportunity was gone, we blowed in ten cents Saturday evening and got our pedigree straight from the lips of the Doctor him self. On the whole we were rather pleased with the evenings entertainment, although the, "Itei-ur/Li- CAN Editor" was denounced before the audience as a "One itlea, brainless idiot." Such respectful allusions as this formed the trimmings of the evening's entertainment. We don't like notoriety but rather enjoyed the "roasting," coming from the source it did. The vei>y best that can be said of the company and its performances is, that they are a low lived crowd and their performances are in keeping with their character. Having had a personal interview with the Doctor himself we know that he is a master of Billingsgate and adept in the use of a style of language that is profane and obscene in the extreme. We endorse .the recommendation that followed the company here from Estherville. The "shows" they give speak for them, and no lady— or gentleman either— with- a very high degree of self respect will be seen twice at their performances, much less consulting the Sagwa Doctor in regard to his infirmities. repreltdtt x" T* Hst of Ma —™ »<1 Dealers, all of whom are rep rented >,y the man rto pays the freight, you cannot foil to appreciate the advantages you ca.n reap by buy.ng your implements of the Oldest Implement House in northern IcTa I represent the best ROO* made in each department.

The receipts of the Algona post office for year ending March 81,1891, amounted to $5,075.10. This was an increase of $579.45 over the receipts of the previous year, and may be taken as a very satisfactory indication of the growth of the business of the' town and of the growth of the population of the town and country. The showing for the year places Algona in rank with those ambitious towns that were hoping for free delivery under the Postmaster General's recommendation, which, however, failed to be made a law. The increase in the business was all along the line, being as noticeable in box rentals as in the sale of stamps, and other postal supplies, while the money order business was the largest by far in the history of the office. — • ........——^.

D., April 4,1891.—To the members of the Grange, the Alliance and other citizens of Algona, Iowa and vicinity: At the last annual meeting of the State Farmer's Alliance and Industrial Union of S. D. a committee was created to solicit aid for our destitute people in the drouth stricken portions of the state. In these parts oui crops were nearly a total failure foi two years. I was appointed secretary, with instructions to send forth solicitors, and see that all donations were properly receipted for to the donors, and the donations equitably distributed among the needy, taking a receipt of every person who should receive a donation. Our appeal was sent to Hon. J. E. Blackford, master of your state grange, and our solicitor, E. A. Bartlett, was sent to you to ask your help. Full returns have been made to me by Mr. Blackford and our Mr. Bartlett of all your donations to our relief fund. Those donations have been most generous. The donations in the main have consisted of flour, clothing, grain (converted into cash) and money, and they have all been distributed equitably among our destitute. It is with a sense of the prof oundest gratitude that on behalf of my distressed people, I most sincerely thank you, one and all, for the loving and generous response you have made to our call for help. And especially am I grateful to that noble, Christian band of women who belong to the committee on " worfe;* in the grange, works do follow them." Again I send you, one and all, my warmest thanks, and pray that none of you may ever experience the crushing poverty and distress my people have endured for the past two years and will have to continue to endure until another crop can be garnered.
