There is a case of Scarlatina in Prof. Dixson's family. The family is under quarantine. When it comes to "scorching it" on a bicycle, Bert Edmonds proves to be the "hot stuff." About one and a half inches of rain fell last Friday night. It was Godsend to the crops. Mrs. Frank Benjamin came down from Minneapolis Saturday night for a visit with relatives. A. W. Moffatt returned from Elgin, Illinois, last Wednesday. Mrs. Moffatt will return this week. Bert Bruners' people are happy over a little girl which arrived on the late train Saturday night.

Vesper was summoned by telegram to Horicon Wisconsin yesterday, to the bedside of her mother, who is quite ill. Miss Bena Lacey gave a party to a number of her friends last Saturday evening. Of course if was made a pleasant occasion. The question of county uniformity still agitates the teacher. C. B. Paul gives us an article this week in our Teacher's column. Britt Tribune:— The Algona REPUBLICAN is getting to the front and the way it is proceeding to pulverize democratic liars is a caution. The water leaks out of the standpipe almost as fast as it leaks into the well. The leaks are not closing themselves up as fast as was promised. The REPUBLICAN has lots of readers around Whittemore and they will be interested in Mr. J. E. Seattle's ad. which appears in this issue. Grandma Barttlet, of Buffalo township, mother of Mike, Henry and Ed. Bartlett died last Friday evening after an illness of only a few hours. Kosmos:— Mr. E. G. Boyer, of Algona, was in town a couple of days this week. A good many good horsemen are making trips to Ilumboldt this spring. The regular meeting of the Woman's Belief Corps will be held Thursday evening nay 28. A full attendance is desired to arrange for memorial day. For the first time in over six months there are no marriage licenses to report. We will have some next week unless dame rumor is "off her base." Miss Alice Mann delivered a lecture in the Unity church at Livermore Sunday evening. Her subject was, "Truth for authority, not authority for truth." We chronicle the fact this week that oud or two new street crossings have been laid recently. It gives us joy to make the anouncement. "Let the good work go on." A district convention of the Epworth League is being held here today. A number of delegates are in the city. Convention opened -with an interesting meeting last night. There will be a conundrum social at the home of Mrs. Hough Thursday evening, June 2d, under the auspices of the W. F. M. S. Young and old most cordially invited. Cut worms are said to abound in unusual numbers this spring and unless the country is soon b.lessed with a copious rain it will be a hard matter to get a corn crop started. The Democratic county convention is called for June 17. The basis of representation will be one delegate for every 15 votes cast for W. II. Chamberlin for Secretary of State. "Shetland pony tournouts are the latest fad at Algona. The lady bicyclists have discarded their wheels for the shaggy little ponies." This item is going the rounds of the exchanges. The bicycle club will meet this evening for another drill. Capt. Cooke requests every rider in town, whether a member of the club or not to come out and take a part in the drill. A mad dog was killed at Eagle Grove a few days ago and the mayor issued a proclamation forbidding dogs to run at large, unless muzzled, under penalty of death. How about the Algona dogs? The city well committee have given A F Daily orders to hold himself in readiness to take the pumps out of the well at any time. This looks like Mr. Stephens still gave promise of doing something. Mrs. Lucy Bigelow and daughter Grace, who have been in Algona for several months, left for Omaha Monday noon. They will remain there about two weeks and then go on to California. Cowan and Conner have secured the contract for erecting a new bank building at Emmetsburg. The structure is to be completed by the middle of September. Algona's builders are wanted everywhere. F. F. Morgan, of Cumberland, Wisconsin, editor of the Cumberland Advocate was in town a few days ago and called at the BEPUBLICAN office to get acquainted. Mr. Morgan is a Son-in- low of Geo. B. Bacon. J. J. Wilkinson, of Omaha' was in the county last week. He came to dispose of a farm in Greenwood town- Ben Smith, of Ramsay is thinking of fail sometimes in hearing from all of our correspondents, but we aim to let the farmer readers of the REPUBLICAN know each week what the several buy- making an exhibit of his Chester white hogs at the state fair this, j; fall. He has some fine pigs and lin exhibit would be a good thing for himself and also the county. ' >, N. Mattson, of Whittemore, was in town Monday and called at the REPUBLICAN office for a short chat with the editor. He is one of the progressive farmers of Lotts Creek township, and a perpendicular Republican. Union memorial services were held at the Congregational church Sunday morning. Appropriate addresses were delivered by Revs. Smith, Whitfleld and Davidson. The G. A. R. Post and Sons of Veterans attended in a body. Prof. E. A. Carter has a class of eight in elocution now meeting reglarly several times each week. Mr. Carter can make further provision for all others who may wish to avail themselves of a little training in elocutionary lines. Miss May Comstpck, of Spokane, Washington, surprised her many Algona friends by puttting in an appearance Saturday evening. Spokane has not been harsh with the Algona girls. Miss Comstock will stay about two months. Bro. Swineburne, of the Ilumboldt Kosmos, wus in town last week. He is getting out a boom sheet for northwestern Iowa arid is after the real estate men for advertising. The sheet will be circulated in Illinois papers as a supplement. Our county correspondents will please remember that we go to press on Wednesdays and that all news letters to insure their publication, should reach this office not later than Tuesday evening. We received two letters last week too late for publication. Collie Chubb came in from the northern part of the county where he has been looking after the cattle business, to spend Sunday. He reports that there are in the neighborhood of 50,000 head of cattle on the prairies between Forest City and Estherville. There will be a "social" at the Congregational church, Thursday evening commencing at 8 o'oclock. The gentlemen are requested to bring hammer and nails. The ladies buttons, needles, thimbles and thread. Admission 10 cents. Refreshments 10 cents. Some more rain would prove a very good thing for the crops. It is reported that farmers in some parts of the county are plowing up their oat fields for corn, the oats having for some reason failed to come up well. Cut wormsare'said to be unusually plentiful. W. H. Innis, an Emmetsburg barber, was in Algona last week getting out some patterns, etc, at the foundry. It is not a great step from cutting hair to cutting grass and Mr. Innis thinks he has the idea for a lawn mower that will be a good thing. His invention is patented. The Emmetsburg Democrat says that the Emmetsburg teachers after their visit to the Algona schools "were very well pleased with their trip and the condition of the schools of our sister town but came home convinced that they were much better looking than the Algona teachers." The papers report that a Mason City young man just mastering the mysteries of a "high wheel," brought up against a swill barrel and took a header into the swill. If a man will buy a high wheel in this day of safeties he should keep away from the pig-pen until he has learned to ride. erain the county are paying for pain and other farm products, T. G. Dallton has purchased the right to sell the Alliance Fence Machine in Kossuth county. Tlie machine and the right to use it is sold for $10.00. tttes and enjoys the distinction o! being the fastest long distance rider that evei* straddled a wheel in this of Iowa. The distance covefed over 11 miles and the state of being considered it was a record. It was supposed that Stough did not possess very remark able powers of endurance and he inveigled by Dr.Morse into going along Paul. His run will be somewhere between St. Paul and Des Moines. ship and was very agreeably surprised at the rapid development of Kossuth. He returned home Saturday. Speaking of county news, just size up the REPUBLICAN thjC week. There isn't another paper in all northern Iowa that can touch u.8 in the matter I of county correspondence with, 9 pote Mrs II F Watson started for Mount Hope Ohio Friday noon. She was called by news of the illness of Dr and Mrs Pomerene and their child and her son Ed Watson. The entire family has been down with the gripp or some form of pneumonia, but at last accounts re. ceived here they were improving. The third Demorest Medal contest will be held in the Congregational church on Friday evening of this week at eight o'clock. The committee have been untiring in their efforts to make this entertainment a success. Come and encourage the young people of our city, and aid the Beading Association. Prof. Favour's lectures last week upon the subject of electricity proved to be all that was claimed for them—"entertaining and instructive. The Professor carries a large amount of electrical apparatus and ilustrates his lectures with numerous experiments. We cordially recommend Mr. Favour's entertainment. The John Paul Lumber company have opened a new yard at Bancroft and WesBobinson, of this place will have charge of it. Mr. Bobinson went up last Thursday and his family will follow him. He has rented his residence here to Mr. Errickson, the new manager of the Queal & Co. yard. Mr. Bobinson will make a good man for the position. It makes a fence of the slat and wire pattern and anything in the line of old boatds, barrel staves etc, that the farmer happens to have lying around may be used in the construction. in another column is published a call for a county temperance mass meeting to be neld in this city one week from tomorrow, June 4th. The call is signed by a large number of the leading temperance men of the county which ought to give it some prestige. The convention win be worth attending. Every one interested come out. The daily average temperature last week was about 3 degrees below normal. An average amount of sunshine prevailed throughout the state. The drought was broken by copious rains which fell the 20th, 21st and 22nd. In over half of the state the measurement was from two to three inches. The crop outlook generally has been greatly improved, but we still need some rain in Kossuth county. Bepublican: Prohibition seems to prohibit in Estherville to a reasonable extent. Of course a few of the old bums manage to ,keep soaked but as a general thing there is very little drunkenness. Our temperance league is to be commended on the sobriety and morality of the community, for it is largely due to the league's vigilance that the law is so well observed. We learn from the State Begister that Bev. Ida C. Hultin, pastor of the Unitarian church in Des Moines, has resigned her pastorate on account of ill health. She will spend several months east in resting and recuperating her health. She will then return to Des Moines where she will make her home. Her future work will be as a missionary in the west for the Western Unitarian Conference. Miss Hultin was formerly pastor of the Unitarian church at this place. Court convened again Monday pursuant to the adjournmant a week ago Saturday. Very little of public interest was done with the exception of the disposition made of the case of Linden Phoenix, the boy who stole Guy Tuttle's bicycle. The grand jury wasa-eimpan- eled and went through the form of finding an indictment. The young man pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced by the.court to one year at hard labor in the penitentiary. Court adjourned Tuesday afternoon all business having been disposed of. Peter J Christenseu in a recent letter to the BEPUBLICAN makes mention of some Algona people. Peter is located at Lakeport, Lake county, California. He says that J. II. Saunders has just visited that place with a view of opening a photograph gallery there. He also says that W. W. Waldo has returned to Lakeport and will remain on a farm there. Mr. Waldo is looking old and discouraged, has been followed with "hard luck" since leaving Iowa, and feels very keenly the loss of his daughter Nannie. Peter and family are all well. The girls band of Emmetsburg had been engaged for memorial day but asked to be released as they had received a better offer from another place. The request was of course granted. Now the question is what will we do for music. Emmetsburg has four brass bands, Bancroft we understand has a band, so has Lu Verne, so has every town of any size or enterprise in northern Iowa but Algona. Algona is the only exception. We can't even scare up a fife and drum here when they are wanted. Let some of the musicians take the matter in hand and •organize a band. The town will raise with the patty In anticipation of running the poor harness man to death on the road home. But like Axtel, Forest suddenly developed a remarkable speed,, and made the Doctor loll before reach* ing Burt. Axtel come in next to Bert Edmonds beating Doctor Morse's record about five minutes and giving him a pain under the ribs in trying to keep in sight. Another race to Bancroft is forth coming as soon as the roads get in good condition. Mr. II. A. Manley of Buffalo Fork has an old hen that has settled down to business since the passage of the McKinleybill in a way to beat the dickens, and satisfy the most skeptical that there is nothing like a little protection to stimulate home manufacture and encourage industry, at least so far as hens are concerned. This particular hen is to all appearances nothing but an ordinary every day kind of a fowl, but since being relieved from competition with the pauper hen of Europe, she lays with far greater regularity and produces eggs that, so far as size is concerned would make an ostrich hump to duplicate. Mr. Manly brought in a sample last Saturday of the work that his hen is now doing. The egg is almost large enough to make a meal for an entire family and have enough, left over for scrambled eggs for breakfast. It measures 8 inches in circumference the large way and 6| inches the, other. Editor Nicol, of the Milford Mail, is a somewhat elderly man, and a cripple as a result of wounds received during the war, one arm being as useless as though it had suffered a stroke of paralysis. A week ago Monday night a party of Milford Masons drove, down to Spencer to attend a lodge banquet. On the way home about three o'lock in the morning, the team became frightened and the buggy was overturned. One .of the party, Edgar Freeman, sustained injuries from which he has. since died and Mr. Nicol had his sound arm broken in two places. He is something of a poet and makes the following apology for last week's edition of his paper. With one arm In a sling, The other not much better, 'Tis not an easy thine To even write a letter. So if you chanee to spy Mistakes in this edition. You will know the reason why- Cm-badly wrecked condition. Ladies Have Tried it.

We aim to publish a complete market report from every town in Kpssuth county each week. We A the necessary money. Just now it is a* matter of an imported baud, with us, or no music. We have had several light frosts lately, but no serious damage is reported. In this respect we are more fortunate than some of the eastern states. The Beporter, published at Woodbury, Connecticut, in its issue of May 20th says: "The frost has ruined the peach crop in this valley. Apples are looking well and the blossoms are hanging on a long time, which an old granger says "is a good sign." Cherries and plums are done for and we must depend on California for our supply. Potatoes got a black eye Monday morning and put back into the ground once more. Gardens are backward, but will soon come to the front if Mr. Jack will hold off. Grapes are not making a good show and where not protected will give small return in fruit." The exciting event of last week was a bicycle race from Bancroft to Algona which took place Thursday evening, participated in by six members of the Algona Bicycle Club. The party consisting of Dr. Morse, Bert Edmonds, Forest Stough, Pearl Pugb, Frank Dingley and a representative of the Algona press went up to Bancroft ou the Four o'clock train and rode back through the rain.
