Jackson, Albert Huebner, Mrs. Alice Nelson, Miss Mena Recker, C. W. Carr, John Boanner. The reports to the Weather Crop Bulletin show that the season is about as far advanced in Kossuth County as; in any other yart of the state. There is nothing slow about Kossuth County even if it is located in the northern part of the state. Andy Robinson has purchased the drug store of C. II. Perry & Co., at Britt, and will take possession the latter part of this week. Mr. F. A. Matthews, of Canton, New York, will take his place. Mr. and Mrs. Robinson will be missed in Algona. There is a case of Scarlet fever at Frank Winkle's. This is the only case in town so far as we have been able to learn and n'o alarm need be felt as to the further spread of the disease, as all possible precautions have been taken. The family is under strict quarantine. At the meeting of the city council Monday night, S. S. Stebbins was elect- street commissioner, and a motion was passed instructing the well committee to use their judgment in hiring a man to clean the sand out of the city well. Up to date Mr. Stephens has not touched the well. Some merchants can sell oil cheap, others can sell groceries cheap, but John Goeders says he can sell clothing cheap. If you have any doubt about it, read his advertisement on the first page of this issue and then go and see Goeders. Talk is cheap, but clothing is cheaper. About a dozen of the boys went over to Whittemore last Sunday on their wheels to inquire after the spiritual welfare of the town and see what kind of a record they could make as long distance riders on country roads. County attorney Joslyn chaperoned the crowd. Friday morning while Mrs. J. Chris- enske was about her household duties, she was seized by a fainting spell and before she could reach a chair she fell striking her head against a baby cab cutting a bad gash. A physician dres- ed the wound and she is doing as well as can be expected. Paul Moore, a young man about 18 years old who works for Milt Moore in Fenton township, met with an accident last Friday that will lay him up for awhile. He was trying to lead a calf and the animal threw him in some way, breaking both bones of the left leg just above the ankle. There will be a business meeting of the Ladies Aid Society at the M, E. church on Thurday, May 14th, at 3 p. m. Each member of the society is especially urged to make a little sacrifice of time and attend this meeting as business of importance is to be transacted in which every one belonging is interested. The Emmetsbuy^ Reporter in speaking about that x whistling contest by some of the young ladies of Emmetsburg, says that it has already come off and that they are "whistling for the little dogs that died." In another place it says that not far from one hundred' dogs have been poisened there during the past ten days. Emmetsburfe Reporter, May 8:—A fire that was terrible in its effects, is reported as having taken place near Ruthven last night. The prairie flre ran onto the premises of Mr, Ennis, and burned his barn and ten head of horses, and while endeavoring to save the horse, a 12 year-old boy was caught In the flames and burned to death. C. C. Hall goes to the north part of the county this week to begin his summer's work. He has about 400 head of cattle to look after, the property of Barney Devine. The range is now confined to about two sections and it is only a question of time, and short time at that, when herding ranges will be known no more in Kossuth forever. Mr. Hall will board himself. DIED: Mrs. Moffatt, who has been visiting with her son A. W. Moffatt, since last fall, died last Friday morning at the age of 82 years and 4 months. Mr. and Mrs. Moffatt left . with the remains for Bartlettj-Illinois, Saturday morning, where interment will take place. Mrs. Moffatt suffered a stroke of paralysis several years ago which was the indirect cause of her death. The Ladies sewing society of the Congregational church have secured Prof. Louis Favour, the noted electrician, for a two night's entertainment, commencing next Tuesday, May 19th. Mr. Favour will perform many interesting and remarkable experiments and will not fail to interest an audience. Hear him when he comes and you will be entertained, learn something of electricity and help the ladies. At a meeting of the school board last Saturday evening, all of the old teachers were re-elected for the ensuing year with the exception of Miss Marcy who declined re-election. The janitor, M. B. Dalton, applied for an increase in his salary and his salary was raised from $35 to $40 per month, during the months of January, February and March. No further business of any interest to the general public was transacted. The editor of the Alton Democrat assailed brother P. S. Junkin of the Sioux County Herald recently, and charged him among other things with the offense of being a young man. The Democrat intended this as a slur and we dont like it a little bit,— Brother J is a frequent visitor at Algona. While he may be the "victim of circumstances" in that he is not as old as some other people, he isn't to blame for that. Last week was unusually cold and dry through the state. The Weather Crop bulletin reports frost ,and ice in every section of the state and on two or three consecutive dates between the 3rd and 8th. The damage to fruit and vegetables is confined almost entirely to the central and southern parts of the state where the growth was most advanced. It is probable that the loss to the fruit crop from the freezing in the southern part of the state will amount to from 10 to 15 per cent. Rev. McDonald, of Emmetsburg, will preach at the Episcopal church next Sunday morning, exchanging with Rev. Bowen. Communion services will be held at the close of the sermon. Rev. McDonald expects to leave Emmetsburg soon on account of his Wife's health and as this is the last time that he will have occasion to preach to the people here, he would be very glad to see all of the members of St. Thomas church next Sunday morning, especially those residing in the country. The Franklin County Recorder was loaded down last week with local notices of the Kickapoo Indian medicine outfit. We did'nt think it of the Recorder. It certainly isn't so far gone that it has to disgrace its local colums with that kind of advertising. After the row the company kicked up at Sheffield, the Recorder should have taken a second thought before encouraging them to stop in Hampton and perpetrate their humbug on the town. A little advertising will sometimes "cover a multitude of sins." The anniversary services of the Baptist church will be held next Sunday, with meeting morning, afternoon and evening. In the morning will be a sermon with Sunday-school following; in the afternoon a roll-call of all the members, with a response from each; in the evening historical sketches of the church and its auxilliary organizations. Every member is specially requested to be present at the afternoon services, and a general invitation is extended to the people to be present through the day. As a general thing a newspaper may be counted on to furnish reliable information of the goings on in the community. It sometimes happens that the reporter gets things badly mixed up but such cases are exceptions. The Palo Alto Reporter of last week contained an apology for several breaks in its news colums of the week before. The city editor made the paper say in that issue that a certain man had died who is still alive and kicking, and that a certain Palo Alto county farmer had purchased a pair of "Jacks" when the truth was that be had invested ia a pair of pea fowls. Such little mistakes as that are bound to happen from time to time with almost any well regulated newspaper. W. S. Davenport, the landlord of the Thorington, "vambused the f ranche" last Friday and his family followed suit yesterday. Mr. Davenport left a great many debts behind him that will probably never be paid and his creditors would like to find him, but "he is not" and no one knows where to look for him. Will Price has been acting as landlord since Davenport left and the hotel will close up this afternoon, Mr. Davenport flew high when he first came here but his flight was short. The funeral services of Bev. A. Whitman, late pastor of theLivermore Baptist church, were held last Sunday afternoon. Bev. Smith and wife were in attendance at the services. A large and attentive audience gathered to hear the services, participated in by Pastors Cummins, of Bancroft; Plumley, of Goldfield; Smith, of this .city and the local M. E. pastor. Mr. Whitman was universally esteemed and loved. He had spent about 52 years in the ministry, with pastorates in Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois and Iowa, occupying some of the leading pulpits of the denomination. He was 78 years of age at the time of his death. The G. A. B. post, of Algona, passed a resolution at a recent meeting discouraging dinners,' amusements, etc. on memorial day. Memorial day was not designed for a gala occasion and a time for festivities. It is a matter of regret that the G. A. B. should find it necessary to pile up a barrier of remonstrance and resolutions to protect that sacred day from the pink lemonade stand and the bowery dance. Decoration day brings its sad memories to thousands who are pained at the growing tendency to make the 30th day of May more and more of a Fourth of July occasion. May that resolution be respected by the people of Algona this year. MEMORIAL DAY. ttetttlutittnd t»y the G. A. B, and Sons <*f Veterans.. The following resolution was adopt* ed by the CK A. RYposfc at a recent meeting: Be it resolved; That it is the sense of the post, that all amusements, dinners or other means of obtaining/ money be discouraged on memorial day. By further resolution of the post, Company F, the Woman's Relief Corps and the Public schools are invited to attend memorial services In a body, and the public generally, are invited. Charles Gray Camp Sons of Veterans passed the following resolution; Be it Resolved; That Chas. Gray Camp No. 88, specially request all sons of soldiers residing in the county to be present at the memorial services in Algona, and to join with the Camp in the procession, whether members of the camp or not. »~<*K~4 COURT. This session ofthe court is not characterized by very much excitement. TheY. case was up again Monday. The question being as to what effect the overruling of defendant's demurrer at last term of court will have in case the matter is appealed to the supreme court. The question rests awaiting communication from the states attorny. The case of Coleman and Lindsay v. s. Supervisor Peters went to the jury this morning. The plaintiff asks damages for trespass of defendant's cattle. CA8H STORE PRICE LIST. JB^-Oii very c?ie«tp 1% and Q% cents per gallon.

Are There Any More V In response to a request sent out from the REPUBLICAN office asking delinquent subscribers to cash up, we received from one the following business like reply. Town and name are purposely omitted: Pubs. REPUBLICAN: Gentlemen, I am owing you considerable on subscription which I expect to be able to pay by the first of July. Hoping that you will be pleased to know that you. are not sending the paper to a dead man or to a dead beat, I am, respectfully. — Next to getting the cash itself, a letter like that makes us feel good. There are men who will read the paper year in and year out and stand the editor off whenever a subscription statement is presented. Finally, when the bill gets bigger than it ought to be and the editor asks two or three times for 3 little money this same fellow will get hot under the collar and cuss the entire newspaper fraternity. The men "who writes letters like the above to the newspaper, are designed by providence to turn up occasionally and keep alive the editor's faith in humanity.
