Prof. E. A. Carter will enteitain the citizens of Wesley on Friday evening of this week with a program of humor, pathos and tragedy. Among other selections he will give his rendation of Poe's Raven. Saturday was one of the finest days of the season—just the kind of a day for farmers. But whether it was the cheap oil or cheap sugar and flour t&at was the magnet, many of them were in town that day. There was a, wedding at Jack Wallace's Saturday night—a silver wedding. The friends of Mr. and Mrs. Wallace assembled to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their wedding. It was a pleasant occasion. The Baptist church will hold its monthly covenant meeting next Saturday afternoon. The annual meeting of the church for the election of trustees and clerk will be held Monday May 4, at 2 p. m. Auctioneer Haggard disposed of a lot of household furniture on the street Saturday. Dave can always get a crowd around him and in a miscellaneous assortment of articles someone is sure to find bargain. The barn of Nick Hubbard, near the foundry, Was destroyed by fire about one o'clock Friday night. The origin of the fire is not known. With the barn was also lost a horse, cow, and some other property. The matter of wages is discussed again this week in our teachers' column, which is always at the disposal of the teachers of the county for the discussion of all questions of general interest to the profession. The Ottumwa Courier, Burlington Hawkeye and Dubuque Times have all had libel suits on their hands recently. The Ottumwa Courier was sued the other day for $50,000 damages. All such little things as that go to make up the life of an editor. A district convention of the Womans Foreign Missionary society will be held at this place the 7th and 8th of May. Miss Cushman a former missionary to China is expected to b.e present, among others. The convention will be held in the Methodist church. The Baptist Young People's Loyalist Society will hold a May basket social on Friday evening of this week in the church. All ladies are invited to bring baskets with luiich fof two. The tlemen are invited to come, buy, and eat. S. S. Sessions has received a package of sugar beet seed from tincle Jerry Busk for gratuitous distribution. All who wish to experiment with sugar beets can get a small package of the seed from Mr. Sessions. Mr. W. II. Campbell has written a poem on Spring which bears all the marks of his genius and which would be very appropriate for publication at this season of the year. Mr. Campbell hopes to have his poetical works published at some future clay. The temperature during the past week averaged 8 degrees daily above normal. The rainfall was above the average for this season of the year. Seeding is practically completed and corn planting has commenced in the southern part of the state. The ad of J. S. Gallagher, the Wesley farm implement man, appears in this issue of the REPUHLICAN. 'Mr. Gallagher is going a big business and his business is on the increase. His farm implement store is one of the permanent and leading business fixtures of Wesley. J. B. Winkel now shows something new for the Domestic sewing machine. It is a small contrivance that is substituted for the bobbin which makes a chain stitch. The one machine is thus made into a chain or lock stitch at pleasure. Look for his ad in the REPUBLICAN soon. Hugh Smith of the Goldfield Chronicle says that "now is the best time of the year to plant dogs. They should be planted deep and well covered. All vicious curs may be safely grafted with duckshot." Hugh used to live in Algona and knows by experience the the curse of too many useless dogs. Plant the dogs. J. D. Davidson, of Buffalo Fork recently visited Red Oak and while there purchased a fine Hambletonian colt of C. C. Platter. The colt is only a year old and is descended from some of the best stock in this country. The grandsire of the colt, Lord Russell, is a full brother to Maud S. The colt arrived in Burt last Thursday in good condition. In another column will be found the announcement of a change in the management of the lumber yard of J. II. Queal & Co. to take effect July 1st. Mr. Wheeler will be succeeded by a Mr. Andrew Erickson who comes here from Dakota. Mr. Wheeler will probably remain in Algona but as to his future business we are unable to state at present. The statement of the Burlington, Cedar Rapids and Northern railroad, showing the number of carloads of emigrants' movables shipped to points along its line west of Iowa Falls during the twelve months preceding April 5, is very significant. The number of carloads thus shipped in was 346, the greater part of which were in northwestern Iowa counties.—Ex. Dr. Sheetz's resignation as mayor of Algona was something of a surprise to the public. The council will probably refuse to accept the resignation at their meeting this evening, but the Doctor is firm in his intention to shake off the official capacity. He finds his time too much occupied with other matters to give any attention to the office hence, his resignation. Attorneys Danson and Sullivan tried a great case before Mayor- Sheetz last Friday. The case involved a pair of boots and a difference of ten cents in book accounts. Herman Rantzow and L. Lessing were plaintiff and defendant respectively. His honor decided that Mr. Lessing mast take a pair of boots of Rantzow and pay him the ten cents in dispute. A case that calls for more than usual sympathy is that of Miss Clara Mathews of Portland township who was brought before the commissioners of insanity Wednesday afternoon last and adjudged insane. She was taken to the asylum Thursday. Miss Mathews is a bright, attractive and intelligent young lady and the unfortunate unbalancing of her mind was brought about by overwork. A convention of the Young Men's Christian Associations of Waterloo district will be held at Vinton, May 15, 17, inclusive. Kossuth county is included within the district, but has no association to send any delegates. Why not organize an association in Algona? Some good could be accomplished. Many towns but little larger than Algeria not only have an association but a paid secretary, Rolfe Argus: Brooks Ilersom had a narrow escaps Sunday afternoon about five miles southeast of Kolfe. He was driving along at a moderate gait when the lightning struck his horse and kill- it. Brooks was thrown from the buggy and shocked into insensibility. When found he was prostrate upon the dead horse. His fur cap was scorched and big holes were torn in the earth near the scene of the lightning's vengeance It was a close call for Brooks and his escape seems miraculous. He now pines for the land where thunders do do not roll and lightnings do not flash. Any one desiring to be initiated into .he mysteries of the Grand Orient should speak to the G. A. P., Dr. W. E. H. Morse. The Grand Orient is a flew secret order just established in Algona and it is in a flourishing condition. Several have already taken the degree and there are already several more to follow. The Grand Orient bids fair to become one of the most popular secret organizations in Algona. Marshalltown is making plans for a beet sugar factory. Eastern capitalists have proposed to erect a beet sugar factory at Marshalltown to cost $650,000, providing the citizens of Marshalltown will subscribe $50,000 and donate 40 acres of ground for the factory. It is proposed to have the factory in operation by November first. The citizens of Marshalltown have a committee at work and every body seems interested —even the farmers. A move in the right direction is the placing of several boards in the yard of the court house bearing the inscription "please keep off the grass." The sourt yard has generally borne a somewhat unsightly appearance by reason of the many paths cut across it and it is now hoped to stop more of such work. Go on the walks. Your business is not so urgent but what you have lime to walk around the corner, instead of cutting across the lot, and you will be the better off for it. Let the unsightly paths be covered up. Riley & Young find such a demand for their fence that they have ordered a second machine, which will be here in a few days. They have so far been unable to supply the demand for the fence, and they have been running the machine night and day. Parties contemplating the purchase of any of the fence this spring are requested to send in their orders immediately in order that Riley & Young may form an estimate of the number of machines they will have to keep running that there may be no delay in filling the orders. Marion Salisbury and wife start the last of this week for southern California where they expect to make their home in the future. We always think that a man misses it when he leaves northern Iowa, In some respects of course, Kossuth county don't stand up to southern California. Ail things considered there is no better state in the Union, liowever, than Iowa and there is no better county in Iowa than big Kossuth. Mr. and Mrs. Salisbury will leave many friends- in Kossath county. We are sorry to see them leave the state. The time of cleaning up is at hand and is being improved by nearly everyone. Nothing adds more to the beauty and general respectability of a town than neatly kept lawns and yards, and Algona can proudly boast of many such. Good examples, as well as bad ones, are catching, and if you happen to live on a street where tidy yards and home premises are not the rule, set the good work in motion by clearing up your own yard. Don't wait for the mayor to order the back yards and alleys cleaned up, but get at it now. Clean up and save the mayor a job of notification. The ad of the Algo>na Marble Works appears for the first time in this issue of the REPUHLICAN. The shop has been moved from the old place on State street next to Dr. Garfield's office to Patterson's red carpenter shop on East State street. Mr. Shelly, the proprietor of the shop, is a first class workman as the sample monuments that he has on hand will testify. We feel like urging the people to patronize a home industry of this kind especially when it is to their advantage to do so. The agent for the foreign marble factory has to have his commission added directly to the price of the stone. You will save money and encourage a home industry by patronizing the Algona Marble Works. The council met in regular session last Saturday evening. A number of bills were allowed and a petition signed by John Grove, R. Kinney and others for a sidewalk commencing at the southeast corner of the intersection of College and Thorington streets and running thence north on the east side of Thorington street to the middle of of Block -29,- was read and referred to the committee on streets and alleys. The committee recommended that the walks be laid. A letter from Dr. L. A. Sheetz tendering his resignation as Mayor was read and referred to a committee of three who were instructed to wait upon Mayor Sheetz and report at the next meeting of the Council. The council then adjourned to meet this evening at 7:30 o'clock. A committee of three from Cresco, Iowa, consisting of Mayor D. A. Lyon, M. N. Morse and J. N. McCoy, were in Algona yesterday for the purpose of inspecting our system of water works. The Republican acknowledges a pleasant call from the three gentlemen. They expressed themselves as well pleased with the appearance of our city and remarked the unusual uumbei of nice residences for a city of the size of Algoua. They think that we have a first class system of water works anc probably went away a little prejudiced in favor of the stand pipe plan. They went from here to Enjjnetsburg to in- spect the plan over there. Cresco is a gook live town and intends to keep tip with the times in the matter of water works. The article upon Free Sugar afld Protection quoted from the New York Press in the editorial columns of this ssu« was reprinted by us for the benefit of our contemporary the Algo* na Courier. The Courier has steadily failed to see the point in the argument that sugar and wool are two different lommodities and produced in this country tinder conditions that differ widely. Our contemporary can't understand why free wool would not prove a good thing for this country just as free sugar has proved itself to be. If Brother Hinchon will read this editorial we have quoted from the Press and then get all his intellectual powers focussed on the question at one and the same time he may be able to see ;he point. During the high wind Sunday afternoon Peter Mathias, who works on Sam Reed's farm six miles southeast of town, had an escape fr<^' tdeath that was almost more than mirk lilotis. He held gone up on the wind nf v l, which is 65 feet high, to fix somiliiing about the machinery that had gone wrong during the wind, and was in some way might by the fans of the mill and mocked from the platform. His left arm was broken and he was badly stunned and shaken up with possible nternal injuries, otherwise he is none the worse for his drop of 65 feet. Morse & Pride were called and, reduced the fracture. It is their opinion that the young man will recover. There are a :ew inches of manure on the ground around the wind mill, which probably served to break the fall somewhat. The Emmetsburg Reporter gives the following account of a wedding, which will be of interest to many of our readers: "Married: At the residence of the bride's parents, in Vernon township. Tuesday evening April 21st. Mr. Carl Starr and Miss Laura Baker, Rev. O. M. Thresher officiating. The iontracting parties to the above marriage are among Palo Alto county's jest and most respected young people. The bride is the daughter of J. C. Bacer, the groom is a son of David Starr. They have lived in the same neighbor- iood from childhood, so that their acquaintance with each other has been sufficient to- develop an affection that ,vill be lasting. Mr. Starr has recently bnilt a new house on the farm he oAvns n Vernon township, and lie and his worthy wife will!, at once, settle down to the business of life. The Reporter xtends its hearty congratulations, and hopes that their wedded life will be one long springtime of joy and happiness." The newly elected street commissioner, of Algona*, refuses to qualify because there is too much cussing in the office for the amount of salary paid. Algona must pattern after Rutuven in regard to the cussing part.—Ruthvea Free Press. And how is that? The Kickavjoos Again The following special appeared in t daily papers of April 23rd. MASON CITY, la., April 23..—The Ini dians with theKickapoo medicine com- '-• \ pany made things exceedingly lively \ at Sheffield! Tuesday night. They were crazy with drink, and when their supply was; gone pandemonium began* They took their war clubs and knives, and proceeded to do up the town. The authorities and citizens were utterly unable to control them and assistance was sent for from Hampton. With, their aid peace was restored. Our Sagwa contemporaries will probably be glad to hear that the Kickapoo company is sustaining, its reputation.
