The Ladies of the Baptist Church will serve supper at the vacant store building of S. C. Spear on State St. Thursday, April 16th, from 5 to 8 p. in. E. X.

Simmons of LuVerne, agent for Riley & Young's combination slat and wire fence, has sold about 8.000 rods of the fence this spring. It seems to be taking well with the farmers. A "citizen" who did not care to sign his name had a sarcastic kick in the last issue of the Courier in which he referred to the bicyclists of the town as "a very useful member of the residents of the city." Dr. Garfield recently performed a very successful surgical operation for Mr. David Baker removing a malignant cancer from the external corner of his right eye. Mr Baker is doing well. A big pigeon shoot is to take place at Algona the 21st and 22ad of May under the direction of the home sportsman's Club. About forty sportsmen from various points in the state are expected to be here. The Courier of last week told how a Kentucky jackass brayed itself to death recently, having ruptured a blood vessel with the violence its braying.

Miss May Palmer and Mrs. G\yeri,de- len of llolile are visiting in the city, the guests of Mr. and Mrs. C. M. Doxsee. Mrs. Gwendolen is a sister of Mr. Doxsee. Our farm department is somewhat abbreviated this week. It is very seldom that we curtail this department of TIIK RKPUDLICAN, but it is sometimes unavoidable. Prof. Cornwall raised in the neighborhood of $38.00 from our business men by private subscription, for the prosecution of the work of the temperance alliance. AVe publish an article from Prof. Cornwall upon the first page of this issue. All who are interested in the cause of temperance will be interested iu reading the article. The Algona Courier is opposed to the establishment of a beet sugar factory in Kossuth County—that is our only inference from the talk about sugar in the Courier of last week. The Chicago Inter-Ocean is willing to render the Italian government indemnity for the New Orleans lynching and is willing to pay liberally, but wants to pay the debt in Italians. The last of the series of teachers meetings was held at the school house iu this city last Saturday, convening at 10 a.m. Both morning and afternoon sessions were well attended. Forrest Stough advertises his foot wear and other leather goods in the REPUBLICAN this week. He has an unusually fine stock this spring and can suit you in the matter of prices. Old Mr. Thomas died in this city last Friday at the home of his son-in-law, Eugene Tellier, aged 78 years. The remains were taken to Rutland, Iowa, the former home of the deceased, at noon Saturday for interment. AVe have a letter from Col. Comstock in this issue. The Colonel tells how he has been standing up for the good name of Iowa and working for prohibition in Spokane and the state of AVashington. The letter is of interest. The United States Revenue Collector from Dubuque, was here last Friday and reminded the local tobacco dealers that they would not be required to pay a tax for the privilege of dealing in the weed after May first.—All on account of McKinley. Bruuson Bros, and Supervisor Holtz had a case before Judge Thompson last Monday over the matter of a spring colt. AV. B. Quarton was employed by Brunson Bros. Supervisor Holtz conducted his own case, saved a lawyer's fee and won the suit. The Algona district camp meeting committee met at Britt last Monday. The next camp meeting will be held at Livermore, Aug. 26 to 81. Arrangements will be made for first-class music, and the committee expects if possible to provide an orchestra. Dave Fox of Wesley has fixed himself out for a second term in the penitentiary if lie can be found. He is wanted this time for attempting a crime for which hanging is too lenient a punishment. The details of the story are unfit to put on paper. AgoodsizedaudiencegreetedtheLong- fellow program at the Court House Hall last evening. Although the program was quite long the audience seemed to enjoy every part of it. The ladies are to be congratulated upon the success of their entertainment. The Weather Crop Bulletin reports that no seeding was done in any part of the state until after April 4. AVe understand that wheat was sowed in the south part of Kossuth county March 30. The season must be about as far advanced in northern Iowa as in any other part of the state. AVe call attention this week to the ad. of Riley and Young which appears in this issue. They are turning out hundreds of rods of the fence and find a ready sale for the article. The fence will turn anything from a chicken to an ox and has none of the objectionable features of barbed wire. A petition to the Czar of all thellussias to abate the Siberian exile system may be found at the post office by all who desire to sign. There is very small hope that the Czar will be affected by the petition but it costs nothing to sign it and let the old fellow know the drift of American sentiment on the question. Miss Anna Nicoulin of this city and Mr. Fred Randall of Mason City were married at 8:80 this morning at the residence of the bride's parents in this city. The bride is well known in Algona circles as an estimable and worthy young lady, and all her friends join in wishing'her a happy and prosperous married life. The old Kickapoo doctor proceeded to further establish his reputation in Algona as a consummate liar, by telling it around town that the RKfunLi- CAN had offered him advertising space but he refused to take it inasmuch as it was in an obscure position in the paper. The fellow is well qualified for the business he is in. Some sneak thief stole a number of articles from the clothes line in O. C. AValker's yard last Thursday night, aud other petty thefts are reported around town. AVe are told that there is a pretty strong suspicion as to who the thieving party is and if the thefts continue some one may suddenly find himself in limbo. Geo. E. Clarke for Bradley & Nicoulin and AV. B. Quarton for A. B. Mense of Buffalo township waged a warfare in the points of law across the table in Esquire Thompson's court yesterday. The trouble was about the sale of a mowing machine, and the court brought in a verdict in favor of the plaintiff. The defense immediately gave notice of appeal to a higher tribunal. Monday the city of Burlington was the scene of mob violence. A gang of saloon toughs and hoodlums attacked Marion Grien who was engaged in the service of certain papers subsequent to the seizure of liquors made last Saturday, and beat and kicked him into insensibility. From the account in the Burlington Hawkeye the outrage was deliberately planned and as deliberately executed. AVm. J. Boals of Cresco township <^ed last Thursday morning aged 515 years and two months 1 The funeral was held at the Methodist church Sunday afternoon at two o'clock. He leaves a wife and six children. Mr. Boals has been a resident of Kossuth County since 187!) moving here from Pennsylvania. He was in ill health for nearly a year previous to his death. The suit of John Goeders vs Mrs. Denson over the matter of a suit of clothes which Mrs. Denson's husband had purchased of Goeders and refused to pay for, came off before Esquire Thompson last Saturday. The court decided in favor of Goeders and Mrs. Denson will have to pay for the clothes. If the woman dusted out that suit of clothes for the old man with a mop handle, when she got home from court Saturday night she could be excused for the action. The high school declamatory contest was held last Friday evening at the Congregational Church. First honors were awarded to Lizzie AVallace, second to Guy Taylor aud third to Bertha Hancock. The State contest will be held at Monticello April 24th. Prof. McCollum, Supt. Carey and Prof. E. A. Carter, of Charles City, acted as judges. The decision was very satisfactory. AVe call special attention to our new premium offer which will be found in another column this week, you will want a copy of the Life of Shernum. The book is being sold on subscription for $2.00 and as much more as the canvasser can get. By special arrangement with the publishers we can furnish the book to our patrous for $1.00. The RKPUBLICAN and the life of Sherman $2.60. No. 1-Vol. 2 of the Iowa weather- crop Bulletin was issued last Saturday. The season is reported to be from two to three weeks later than the average of recent years. The temperature last week was below normal: the average deficiency throughout the state being 65* per day. Forage is exceedingly scarce in all parts of the state and farmers are anxiously awaiting the appearance of grass for their stock. Though the season is late the outlook is uniformly favorable for good crops. AVith Sundry remarks about the "substitute," after its elegant and refined style of putting things. The Courier proceeded last week to make the statement that the editor of the RKruBU- CAN "had to go down in his own pocket to pay the expenses" of the Lozier entertairlment. That is about as near the truth as the Courier is able to get without making a special effort, and we would advise that paper to get more reliable information liereaf ter or else confine itsobservat- ious to something that it knows something about,—the tariff for instance.— A special to the Sioux City Journal from LuVerne reports that the ladies of the AV. C. T. U. are making an at- teurpt to close the cigar store down there on Sunday. E. L. Dobell, proprietor of the LuVerne cigar factory, refused to comply with the request of the ladies and they decided to "read it out." The first relief went on at 3 o'clock p. m. last Sunday, and a second relief went on duty in the evening. The ladies sat in the cigar store quietly reading amidst a great crowd of men and boys who exerted themselves to smoke the ladies out. It is expected that the performance will be repeated next Sunday. Gov. Boies made a serious mistake in removing II. K. Snider of Grinnell from the state board of pharmacy, for he has invited the criticism not only of every Republican paper in the state, but of the less hide-bound of the Democratic press. Mr. Snider is in every way a competent and efficient man, and in every way a good Democrat, with the, exception that he is not in line with his party on the temperance question—he is a prohibitionist. That was the only reason for his removal. Gov. Boies is pursuing the fixed policy of nullifying the law wherever possible, and lie is careful that none of his appointees are in sympathy with its enforcement. At the meeting in the reading room ou Friday last Mrs. Rev. Douglas of Rockwell, a sister of Mr. J. AV. Robinson, was present and led in the devotional evercises. She gave much inspiration to the meeting by her earnest words and manner. A summary, of temperance news was given by Mrs. J. R. Jones. The call for the tenth national temperance convention was read. This convention will be held at Saratoga Springs, N. Y., July 15, 1891. Mrs. Prof. Dixsou aud Mrs. A. D. Clarke gave readings which were very excellent. Good music was furnished by Mrs. Spencer, Mrs. Bowyer and Miss Dingley. It was gratifying to see so many at the meeting although the day was unpleasant, and to notice the increased interest in the reading room. Prof. Cornwall of Dakota occupied the pulpit at the Methodist church last Sunday evening, speaking on the general subject of temperance. He spoke again Monday evening to a good house, having more particular reference to the present situation of matters in this state. He is a very convincing and logical speaker and it is to be regretted that the audiences were unavoidably divided on both evenings. Unless the temperance people of Iowa awake to the occasion the state will be lost next fall to the saloon. Prof. Cornwall is trying to impress this fact upon the friends of the cause. Prohibition will stand or fall next fall accordingly as the temperance people awake to the gravity of the situation and stand together for the election of a legislature that will not repeal our present laws. The AVesley Reporter made its appearance along with the sand hill cranes last week. It is a neat looking little seven column folio with Mason City insides. We can hardly judge the new paper by its first issue, but it presents a very neat appearance, bids fair to be bright and newsy and starts out with a good quantity of advertising. It is advertising as much as anything else that makes the journalistic mare go, and so it looks like our young contemporary would "get there." The existence of this sixth paper in the County will make it rather crowded for breathing space and yet we take it all as an evidence of the prosperity of AVesley and Kossuth County and the literary tasts of our people. May the AVesley Reporter prove a "salutary" infiuence in AVesley and Kossuth County as the salutatory article in the first issue would seem to promise from its heading. As the result of a misunderstanding about some hay, AVm Nolan a farmer of Cresco township is at home pretty badly used up, and Robert Bowman a young man only eighteen years old who lives in Algona, is in jail, iu default of a bond of $500 awaiting the action of the grand jury. It seems that Col. Spencer had purchased some hay of Mr. Nolan with the understand- hay into town if he had time to do so. As it looked like rain last Wednesday and the Colonel was in a hurry for the hay he sent two of the Bowman boys out with a team to help Mr. Nolan get the hay into town. The boys 1 were about to put on a load of the bales when Mr. Nolan and his son appeared upon the scene and forbade them to do so. The boys were not acquainted with Mr. Nolan and did not even know who he was. As the hay belonged to Colonel Spencer and they were sent there to haul it, they insisted upon doing so. The result of the misunderstanding was a fight between Mr. Nolan and Robert Bowman in which hay hooks figured a little to prominently. Nolan was badly cut up about the head receiving one or or two blows from the hook that laid the skull bare. He also had the hook driven entirely through his left hand between the thumb and fore finger. After a few moments W. C. Bowman stepped in and seperated the two men. Information was filed against the two Bowman boys AVednesday evening and they were arrested Friday morning upon the charge of assault with intent to commit great bodily injury. They appeard before Esquire Taylor Friday afternoon with AV. C. Danson to defend their case. Preliminary examination was waived in the caae of Robert Bowman and lie was bound over to await the action of the grand jury. After hearing all the evidence in the case AV. C. Bowman was discharged by the court. Mr. Nolan was unable to appear in court to give his testimony. Grown up men should learn to think twice belore engaging in a fight with hay hooks. . .--,•,-.. Board of Equalization. The council sat last week as aboard of equalization, but wo were unable to see the minutes in time to make a re- fort of the proceedings for last week's IlEPUirucAx. The board made the following reductions in the assessed valuation of property as reported by the assessor: In the case of Jay Ilodg- man on personal property, reduced from $25 to $5.

Crabs particularly are fighting' animals; in fact, they will fight anything. I have seen a crab, in conflict with a Ipb- ster, catch the Latter over the fore part of tho head, where the shell is hardest, and crush it in by one effort. And it rather bears out my idea that the claws of these creatures are particularly weapons of war; that the moment one of them receives severe injury in a claw it ilrops it off by voluntary amputation, severing its connection with the body at the shoulder by an act of its own will. It seems to me probable that if the claw were necessary for feeding nature would rather seek to cure an injury to it than let the animal discard it altogether. The species of crab which is most conspicuously a fighter is the hermit crab. Its first idea of independent life is to eat a harmless whelk and occupy its shell; its next notion is to give battle to every crab of the same persuasion as itself that it comes across. Altogether hermit crabs are undoubtedly the most quarrelsome creatures in existence.—Interview in Washington Star. For light and heavy S. Stough. harness call on F.
