Beware of the fate of the little boy in the Sunday school book. Will Easterly, of Burt, has been helping at the Northwestern depot the past few days during the absence of Agent Vesper. The editor of the Courier declares that he is "overwhelmed with ennui." We have been wondering for some time what ailed him. Rev. McDonald, of Emmetsburg, preached in the Episcopal church last Sunday, as announced, exchanging pulpits with Rev. Bo wen. S. S. Sessions, John Smith, Henry Durant, Frank Parish, J. W. Wadsworth and Dr. West are in attendance at the shoot in Des Moines. Some of the boys got up a dance at the court house hall Saturday night. The mafia band that was doing the town furnished the music. Dr. Morse seems to be getting back a large share of his former Bancroft practice. He has frequent calls in the northern part of the county. County uniformity still agitates the teachers. We have an article in this issue on the subject, from Miss Caroline Wesley, who is teaching in Burt township. Constable Tuttle has taken to riding a bicycle. He is a very graceful rider It isn't every town of the size of Algona that can boast of a constabulary on wheels. E. E. Gray, of Seneca, was an Algona visitor Saturday, coming down on his bicycle. Mr. Gray is teaching five miles from home and rides his wheel to and from school. I would call attention to the fact that I am located here permanently, tor the manufacture and sale of cemetery work in Marble, Granite and Stone.

He was in Algoua Monday. Vindicator:—The city council did a wise act last night bypassing an ordinance to shut out itinerant-sagwa-med- icine-whoonf'er-up-on-the-coruer frauds | that may Jiereafter come along. Agent Vesper was Ovef in Wisconsin on a visit last week, The class in the study of the Life of Christ will'meet tfrida£ evening at the Congregational church at 7:46.

It is reported that Al Winkie has purchased a rail road eating house at' Burnet Junction Wisconsin and is going into the hot coffee, and ham sandwich business. An agent for a La Crosse boot-legging establishment, was in town last week. There ought to be some law to make it warm for those fellows in their nefarious business. Mr. Ladendorf will move his restaurant into the building east of the post office some time during the latter part of the week. The rooms have been fitted up for restaurant purposes. The ladies of the M. E. church will serve strawberries and ice cream, in the old Spear store building on State street, on Thursday evening from 6 to 10 o'clock. Everybody is invited. Doc Leatherman and Will Price are operating the Thorington for the time being. What further arrangements will be made is not yet known. The hotel will probably not be closed, however. David Mitchell left for Forest City Monday to help McMurray with his building contract. Mrs. Mitchell expects to go there soon, and remain during the season, to see that Dave has plenty to eat. Quite a heavy frost was reported last Saturday morning, yet men in town that same afternoon were remarking how "awful hot" it was. "What we need is some rain to even up .the temperature. Grandpa Heckart reached his 86th birthday last Thursday and celebrated the occasion by a trip to Eagle Grove for a visit with his son Gal. Grandpa Deports a building booom in progress at Eagle Grove. Mr. and Mrs. A. II. Hotelling came over from Whittemore Saturday and helped to swell the crowd of people that come to Algona for bargains in groceries, dry doods, clothing and everything else. Riley and Young still keep their fence making machine in active operation. The demand for fence is still in excess of their ability to manufacture it. LuVerne furnishes an immediate market for 2000 rods. O. W. McMurray has secured the contract for building a large hotel aiid school house at Forest City this summer. Work will begin immediately. Several Algona laborers will find work with Mr. McMurray on this job. The regular meeting of the W. C. T. U. and reading room association will be held at the reading room on Friday afternoon at three o'clock. Please come out and thus encourage the ladies by your presence if nothing more. The Episcopal chapel has just received the Qnishining touches from the paint brush. The roof has been given a slate color while the church itself has been painted a light cream with mahogany trimmings. It gives it a very neat appearance. Frank Parish and daughter Gertie left for the south on the noon train Monday. Mr. Parish goes to Des Moines to purchase goods and tools and attend the shoot as a side issue, and Gertie will spend a week with relatives at Maxwell. Chicago's Mafia to the number of three were in Algona last Saturday with a harp and two fiddles, and discoursed Italian music and took up a collection. The Italian hand organ man and street fiddler is one species of vagrant, and a nuisance that ought to be done away with. Two Spencer young man 'are making the return trip from New Orleans on ,heir wheels and when last heard from ,hey had got as far as Kansas City. They shipped their wheels to New Orleans and made the trip thither by rail and steamer. They have been out on the return trip about SO days. Other towns are making arrangements to celebrate the Fourth of July. Are we going to have amy kind of "doings" at Algona this year? Now is the time to commence talking about it. The REPUBLICAN is in favor of a rousing, old-fashioned kind of a celebration with "bonfires and illuminations." John Winkle's famous horse Kossuth was brought down from Bancroft Monday and will remain in Algona for some time. After the breeding season, Kossuth will probably put in training for some of the races. Kossuth is now nearly four years old and a fine specimen of horse flesh. Several mares have been shipped in which will be bred to him. Late news from Pomona, California, announces the death of Frank B Hyde, which occured on the 6th. Mr Hyde with his mother, went to Pomona from Algona last fall hoping that the change would prove beneficial to both.

The Summer meeting of the Upper Des Moines editorial association will be held at Fort Dodge, July 10 and 11. Frank Chase, of Clear Lake, inspecting officer for the Sons of Veterans, inspected the camp at this place last night. It may interest the Lu Verne News to know that Squire Taylor's "rotten decision" in that hay case was affirmed by the district court. Milo Sherman of Fredericsburg Iowa, a brother of ex Gov. Buren R Sherman will deliver the address before the G. A. R. Post Memorial day. Coleman Chubb who was injured in leading a horse a week ago yesterday is somewhat improved but the extent of his injuries is not yet known. New York City Sunday papers are received at the REPUBLICAN office Tuesday morning. That speaks pretty well for Uncle Sam's mail service. Arthur Biglow arrived in Algona last evening, from Nebraska. Mr. Bigelow will be a permanent settler and will open up a new farm near Ledyard at once. ' A new mail clerk on the Milwaukee fired all the Algona mail off at Wesley this morning. We can excuse him this time but don't want to have that happen again. A Wisconsin editor advertises in his paper to sell a bath tub, and adds, "its as good as new, never been used." An editor has very littl'e use for a bath tub any way. Elmer Slagle has at last been assigned to a permanent route in the mail service and will commence June 1st. His route will be somewhere on the Des Moines and St. Paul division of the M. & St. L. railroad. List of letters remaining uncalled for in the post office at Alogna for week ending May 17,1891: Miss Lillie Howard, Anna Trinbak, John Tbd'd", Wm.

M. Heath and F. M. Spicer. We 3xave received a circurav letter announcing a camp meeting of the Iowa Holiness Association to be held in Des Moines June 5-15. Leading specialists have been secured from various states. Parties desiring information address Mrs. T. G. Orwig, 1210 Pleafant street. Union Memorial services will be held in the Congregational church next Sv. ;> day at 11 a. m. The James C. Taylor Post, G. A. R., and Chas. Gray Camp S. of V. will attend in a Ibody. There will be patriotic music aaad addresses by Revs. Smith, Whitfieldi and Davidson. The average temperature last week was about normal. On the morning of the llth there was a general frost with ice on low ground. The damage reported was very slight however, garden plants and strawberries suffering the most injury. The prospect for fruit is still very promising. The state generally is suffering for rain, particularly in the northern part. Corn planting is completed. Waterloo Reporter:—An Algona man wrote to Jerry Simpson, the sockless statesman from Kansas, inviting him to make a Fourth of July address there, but he pleads a previous engagement and declines. We do not exactly understand whether Jerry was to go in among the "greased pig" attractions, but we think a better use can be made of the "glorious fourth" than as an exhibition of political freaks. All bicyclists in town, especially members of the club, will meet at the court house at seven o'clock this evening, and bring their wheels. This manifesto is issued by T. F. Cooke, captain of the "Algona Cyclers." It is desired to get the wheelmen together for a street parade and such drill as the Captain may see fit to devise. There are enough wheels in town to make a very imposing parade. Everybody turn out at seven o'clock tonight. This is a good day for weddings. Fred Bacon and Delia Hume, of Wesley, are to be married to-day, also Chas. Sarcbett and Sadie Patterson, of Union township, and Fairbanks and Clara Grover, of Portland. We wish these three young couples just starting put on the river of married May they meet with no adverse winds and run onto no snags. If they will drop into the K»?unLiCAK office and request it, we will put them on our subscription book for one year free of charge in accordance with our liberal offer to newly married couples. It will interest Iowa people to know that Capt. Remey the commander of the Charleston is a native of Iowa He was born in Iowa and when a boy was appointed to the naval academy at Annapolis. He has gone right up the ladder. Iowa boys are noted for that. The Charleston is now in the Pacific Ocean in pursuit of the Chili Insurgent steamer Itata and the entire civilized world is watching her movements with interest. We have just added a Ledyard correspondent to our , already long list of efficient county correspondents. Ledyard is looming and will soon rival some of its older sister towns on the south. The town is having a building boom. The North-Western will put in a depot in a short time and detail a regular operator. A school house will be erected in the course of the summer besides a number of other buildings. The north end of Kossuth county is coming right along and Ledyard is coming with it. Grandpa Bacon, of Wesley, was a caller at the REPUBLICAN office Monday. We are always glad to see him. Mr. Bacon is ninety-one years of age, but a stranger would not take him to be a day over seventy. Mr. Bacon has been an active man in his day and has been personally identified with several important epochs in the history of the country. He still reads the daily papers regularly and has a lively interest in passing events. It is a real pleasure to talk with a man whose experience stretches backward for almost an entire century. The Spokane Spokesman of recent date contains a two column report of a lecture secently .delivered in Spokane by Col. COmstock, in which he very ably discussed the Shakespeare Bacon questions taking the grounds of Ignatius Donnelly. The Spokesman in facetious head lines lums up Mr. Constock's estimate of Shakespeare as "avulgauand uneducated man who cleaned out livery stables and didn't know a semicolon from.a hayfork." The man who attempts to find a new author f on Hamlet and the Merchant of Venice finds-aworld of prejudice to over come ins the minds of aM lovers of "the great peet that ever wrote in any language. The Baconian theoryhowever is not without sufficient grounds to commend itself to every careful: student of Shakespeare, and Col. Comstock's argument, from the abstract given in the Spokesman, struck us as very masterly and convincing—from a Donnelly standpoint—although we have always been inclined to look upon.Shakespeare as the author of his own plays. A carload of partially spoiled and unsalable groceries was sidetracked at the Northwestern depot last Saturday and the'goods distributed, among the farmer* who had previously ordered them of traveling agents. We understand tliat there is considerable dissatisfaction among the farmers with the goods. Farmers who patronize the traveling grocery agent must expect to be disappointed in the goods. Reliable grocery houses are not forced to dispose of goods that way. They don't have to.. There is always a big supply of goods in the larg,e cities that are fire damaged, water soaked and otherwise rendered unsalable. These goods are bought up inlargfrlots and retailed to the farmers at an immense profit, through traveling agents, upon the representation that they are all first class. That is the secret of the business in which the traviling, grocery agent is engaged. It is hardly a legitimate enterprise. Farmers, should think twice before going back on the merchants of their own town, especially if the home Baerchants are selling groceries as cheap as they can be bought in Algona. The farmer is directly interested in building up his home town and making a home market for the products of his farm. COMSTION. Arrangements are being made for a county temperance convention to be held at Algona Thursday June 4th. The call for the convention will be published next week. Both afternoon and evening sessions will be held. It is earnestly hoped by those having the the matter in hand that all who are interested in the cause of prohibition and its enforcement will try and be present. All friends of the cause will be welcomed and will be given a seat and a voice in the convention. An effort is being made to secure some prominent speaker from a distance to address the convention. More particulars will be published next week. >-»•»-»— ALGONA FIRST AGAIN. At the examination of candidates for appointment to cadetship at West Point, held at Fort Dodge last Friday, Bertram S. Barr, of Algona, stood first and has been recommended by Congressman Dolliver. He is now awaiting orders from the War department to proceed to West Point for final examination. Mart Weaver tied for second place as alternate with a Fort Dodge boy, on the examination. It in the rule in the case of a tie to give the preference to the younger of the two- applicants. This rule sfiuts Mart out. It is« not altogether a coincidence that two Algona boys should stand first and second in the examination. It speaks well for the management of our city schools. Twelve candidates in all for the appointment took the examination.. COURT DOINGS, To accommodate some ofi the lawyers, court adjourned last Saturday to convene again next Monday afternoon. The case of Coleman and Lindsay vs.- G. H. Peters went against MB. Peters to the extent of $80 damages.In the case of Hersohel Scott against the Chicago Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway company a verdict was found in favor of the defendant. The plaintiii asked, damages of the company for the killing of some horses on the railroad track last November. The case of Ball and Bronson vs. Bailey Burtis was called up. Saturday and judgment* for $50 and costs was rendered in favor of Ball and Bronson. This is the same case that came up in Esquire Taylor's court some weeks ago. The LuV.erne News characterized Mr.Taylors verdict in the case as "rotten." The case was appealed to the District court and Esquire Taylor's decision was affirmed.. »"4O»~< THE ALGONA RACES. The Algona Driving Park Association promises to exhibit some, of the best trotting blood in northwestern Iowa at the races which will be held this year July 14th and 15th. $1000 will be offered in purses, and there will be plenty of horses on hand to trot for the money. All purses will be divided 60, 25 and. 15 per cent. The association will have the track graded up and put in first class order in time for the races. Entries will close July 7th. It will not be necessary to go away from home to see some good races this year. . >-•••--• MEMORIAL DAY PROGRAM; Exercises will i be conducted upon memorial day according to the following program. James C. Taylor, Post will meet at the G. A. II. hall at 10 a. m. sharp and march in order from, there to the Congregational church where the following program will be rendered: Music. Ritual services by the G. A. K. Post. Address MILO SHBBMAN Music. Dialogue—Guarding the flags. Music, Adjournment.

G«., Sons of Veterans, James C. Taylor Post G. A. R. and all veterans, followed by citizens. Immediately upon being formed the column will march, to the cemetery where the usual decorating ceremonies will take place followed by an addess by Comrade Bailey. The REPUBLICAN editor took a little turn on his bicycle up to Ledyard last Thursday to see the steam plow work, and found the said plow stuck in a mud hole. The owners of the plow are confident that when it is once put in good running order and they have ascertained just bow much of a slough it is safe to try and go through, no further trouble will be experienced. All those who have never seen a steam plow opperate will be well repaid for the trip to Ledyard. Parties contemplating the trip will do well to hire a guide at Bancroft for the roads north of that point are distinguished for the absence of guide boards and the country itself is distinguished for the absence of roads. What roads there are might have been marked out—from all appear ances~by some antedeluvian monster as he trailed his snaky carcass pver the prairies. Butit ia really astonishing how fast the country in the vicinity of Ledyard is settling up and taking on the appearance of civilization. Northern Kossuth is having as big a boom just now as any part of Iowa, and it is the substantial kind of a boom that it is having. Most of the land deals this year have been with actual settlers and they have all come with the intention of remainin EPWORTH LEAGUE CONVENTION.
