LuVerne News: Will the Algom REPUBLICAN kindly spring some subject for discussion upon the Couriei beside "cheap sugar" and the McKinley bill? Like Tennyson's "brook' Hinchon seems destined to "flow on forever" upon the above subject unti: he has worn it threadbare. Don't forget about that opera house. If there is one thing this town need_ more than another in the way of conveniences, it is a good hall. Everybody understands this and it is strange that the men of means in Algona should hesitate about putting theii capital into the enterprise. Dave Haggard declares he is in favor of the extra expense of putting in a fountain in connection with our city water works, as suggested by the REPUBLICAN some time ago. He is in favor of a place wbere he can water his horse or slake his thirst without running away down to the river. Letters remaining uncalled for at the Algona post office for the week ending May 2nd, Misa Anna Trum- jauk, Mrs. Jennie Trumbull, Miss Minnie Myers, Miss Tracy Kiernan, Miss Maggie McDowell, F. H.Meeker, Mr. W. P. Myers, W. S. Goodhere Frank J. Mason, Mrs I. N. Cross. Marshall & Carrington have their big steam plow in operation up near Ledyard and are "tearing up the sod" at a great rate.

The ladies of the W. C. T. U. and Reading Room association will hold heir regular meeting at the reading •oom on Friday afternoon, at three o'clock.

Last week was a good week fra the growing crops all over Iowa. The temperature was 6>° above normal and here was an average amount of sun- hine. There was scarcely a trace of ainfall anywhere in the state. The Veather Crop Bulletin reports the conditions highly favorable for farming perations. The prospects for good rops is encouraging. Maine purposes to stand by prohibit- on. The recent legislature tightened he joints and caulked the cracks of the Id law till it is dangerous now to carry ven the smell of whisky on your bveath r in your clothes. Liquor found: on he person is held equivalent to liquor ound on the premises for unlawful ale. Maine has had prohibition for a out? time and is pretty dry state. We have used our office shears en the Rolfe Reveille this week. The editor f the Reveille speaks from "personal ;nowledge" as to the cost of lumber in Jariada and gives the free trader some- hingto think over, who is howling ibout the infamous tax on lumber, and hat it robs the poor farmer who has to cratch around so hard for the few dol- ars necessary to buy the lumber for is little shanty out on the prairies. Delegates from the Driving Park Associations of Emmetsburg, Eagle jrrove and Humboldt met in Algona ast Wednesday, to arrange for the dates of the summer races in order that here might be no conflict between the different associations. The races will je held as follows. Emmetsburg July th and 8th, Algona, July 14th and 15, iagle Grove, July 21st and 22nd and Humboldt July 28th and 26th. The city council were surprised last Vednesday evening when notice of uit against the city by Chris Heise for 1,000 damages was read. Chris claims hat the objectionable manure piles on East State street—which, were ordered enxoved gome time ago, by ttie board of health, and which by the way* are still there—smell bad and have damaged his well water and the health of his family to the extent of $1,000. It is going to make an interesting case The manure, instead of being removed as ordered by the board of health, is being covered tip with ashes and dirt Ib certainly won't improve the qualitj of drinking water to have it percolate through a manure pile. Mr. Stephens has done nothing as yet on the city well and the ten days allowed him by the council to finish the well are up Saturday night. Mar shall Dailey has had no little trouble with the pumps recently, ns the cylinders finally became choked with sand as a result of trying to pump when there was no water in the well. The pumps are in running order again however. Jas. Taylor has been writing to "Sockless Simpson," of Kansas, to secure him for a burst of alliance eloquence at Algona on the Fourth. He has a letter from the great "Sockless" regretting that he will be unable to take in Algona this year but hoping he may do so in the future. lie will exhibit his "high cut panties" at some Kansas town on our coming nationa anniversary. D. A. Haggard and others have petitioned for a side walk commencing at the south west corner of block 21 and running thence north on the east side of Dodge street to the south-west corner of block 84 and running thence east along the north side of North street to the Diagonal street at or near the corner of lot 7 in block 188 of Call's addition. The walk petitioned for by John Grove and others, last week, was ordered to be built within the next ten days. The Des Moines Register commenting upon the shooting of Eufus De Long in that city last week by officer Cook, suggests that it is safer for the prisoner if the average policeman aims directly at him when he is shooting to scare, instead of aiming at space. This is a reflection on the marksmanship of the Des Moines policemen and it is a little suggestive loo. An officer should never use his. revolver except in extreme cases. The following-is the list of the jurors for the next term of court.—Grand Jury:—John Reed, C. Corey, John Newman, R,. Beringhaus, J. J. Budlong, Ed. Donovan, Hugh McDonald, D. D. Dodge. Trial Jury:—Andrew Burt, W. P. Giddings, O. E. Blias, F. II. Paine, Mike Schields, Ed. Yemans, a. II. Spencer, August Kronse, Geo. Patterson, Eugene Ford, S. C. Dunn, E. W. Tennant, Chas. Iligley, W. II. Fox, Martin Scholman. The Kickapoo Indian show has been at Sheffield lately. Big Eagle, the Sioux Warrior, who. got drunk while here and created such a stampede imong the other members of the troupe and was taken into custody until he jooled off, repeated the performance there and made Rome howl with Ins inearthly demonstrations. The man vho sold him the liquor has been ar- •ested and bound over to appear before he federal grand jury at Fort Dodge, —Estherville Vindicator. Some of the boys who are attending he shoot got after a loon that was swimming around in the Soft Water Pond his morning. The boys surrounded he pond and commtoced to pepper .way at his loonship who would dive whenever a gun was fired, and come up again in a few minutes to get his breath, only to dive again immediately. This was kept up until the bird got winded and could'ht dive any more, when he vas finally killed. The bird was shot at 28 times by actual count. William A. Sweet, president of the New York State Road Improvement .ssociation, believes in having he forward axle-trees of heavy wagons lightly shorter than the rear ones, o that the latter will track close to the >uter edge of the track made by the orward wheels, the wheels behind thus lushing back the dirt that the forward nes displace. By such an arrangement two or three wagons could go ver a road bed and not wear a yut deeper than one wagon with wheels ex- tctly tracking. The idea is a good one and will bear thorough testing. The Estherville Republican has se- ured the exclusive franchise for Emmet county, for the publication of TamaJim" Wilson's farm articles. Ve congratulate the proprietors of the Republican for they have added an ex- remely valuable department to their taper, insuring it increasing populari- y with the general public. We have md the use of the Wilson farm department for over six months and we know svhereof we do affirm when we make he statement that expensive as the ranchise is, it is worth in the end sev- ral times its cost to any paper that will push it properly. Mr. Wilson has no living equal in Iowa and no superior n the country as an agricultural writ- r. His articles are uniformly brim ull of sense and sound advice and they never fail to commend themselves to he intelligent farmer. ular, very small, very ttte Early Btoew, thsp , billiowwe^ Bids Sold by Pr, Sheetz. ood. lfor WEDDING ANJJIVEB8ABY, Editor Republican: The 45th „»» versary of Dr. and Mrs. M. It, HudSb was celebrated at their residence i Algona, April. 29th 1891. By arrange* ment they had been invited to take dinner with the family O f their son Henry two blocks away, although in the busy seeding time, friends and neighbors assembled, marched down and took possesion, after which their son Cheever hastened to inform them that their presence was wanted home as Deacon Zahlten and wife had called on them. A full house and a complete surprise awaited their return. An address for the occasion was delivered by R. J. Hunt as follows: Dr. and Mrs. Hudson, a few of your friends and neighbors (whom I have the honor to represent) have invaded your peaceful home in a quiet socia way to refresh your memories, to mind you that to day is the 45th anniversary of your married life, and to help you to celebrate this great and eventful day which happens but once in a life time. Forty-five years ago you pledged to each other your mutual vows of constancy which bound you in the holy bonds of matrimony, and* those bonds are just as binding to day as when first given, may that faith, love and hope continue through life. Few indeed have traveled hand in hand over the matrimonial highway of life through a period of four and one half decades or nearly half a century as you have done, and after having had an acquaintance of over thirty years we may be pardoned for saying that as citizens, as neighbors or as the heads of families we have discovered no flaw, have seen no spot 710 wrinkle or any such thing, and we believe that no influence that either of you have ever exerted will react to cause your gray hairs to go down in sorrow to the grave but will rather go on and on in the right direction benefiting others long after you have gone, like shocks of corn that were fully ripe and prepared for the masters use. May your children, your neighbors and our selves ever strive to imitate such examples as your lives have set before us. As to the terminus of your journey whether that be far or near, to you it matters little for we have no doubts and you need have no fears, you have lived among us long enough to merit our esteem and friendship for your warm sympathy in times of trouble and sorrow for the kind and obliging favors which you are ever ready and willing to bestow gives us cause to honor and respect you as true friends and neighbors. In celebrating this anniversary we propose to day to break from those old traditionary rules- where the happy couples have been made the recipients of valuable gifts of diamonds, gold, silver and other delicate and costly gifts which in general have been more ornamental than useful. In behalf of these . friends and neighbors I present you is a free gift this book case and desk lombine which is artistic in design Beautiful in finish and which we be- ieve you will agree with us in saying s not more ornamental than useful. We trust you will accept this slight token of our regard as a reward of merit 'or the past and, an. encouragement for the future. Deacon Hudson responded in a feeing manner thanking them all and de- ilaring that he did not know that they md so many Mends. lie also said: 'A certain wise man has said there are two conditions in which a man might be placed,, one was when he hadl no feeling and the other was when he had too much, and the latter eondition was the one in which he was placed." A.mong those present were. Deacon and Mrs. Zahlten, Mr. and Mrs. Carey, Mr. and Mrs. Hofius, Mr. and Mrs. 'hilips, Mr. and Mrs. II. Gilbert, Mr. uid Mrs. Dormoy, Mrs. S. Reed, Mrs. Andruss, Mrs. James Paine, Mrs. D. King, Mrs. McCall, Mrs. Holman, Mrs, Stowe, Mrs. M. Stephens, B. F. Reed and family, Henry Hudson and family, Mr. and Mrs R. J. Hunt, and Miss Alice Mann. The occasion was one ong to be remembered by all. II. Fort Dodge Messenger: A safety bicycle fitted with Joseph A. Trusty's patent spokes attraced a good share of attention on the streets Saturday. Practical wheelmen say that the^application of these spokes to cycles looks ike a success. It gives the wheels an ilasticity within themselves that avoids o a great extent the ''vibration" to do away with which all wheel manufac- urers have been devoting their energies for years. The experiment this morning has proved conclusively that ihe spring spokes are sufficiently strong 10 answer the purpose, and if practice ihould prove them durable—and there leems to be no reason why it should not—Mr. Trusty's fortune is made. The spring spokes will be by all odds lie simplest and most effective device 'or preventing vibration now in use. Mr. Trusty will at once correspond with some of the leading cycle manufacturers with a view of seeing what there is n it. •«•••••- Regulator.
