All four young people are well known, and highly esteemed. Mr and Mrs. Buell will leave tbis evening, for Albany, Wisconsin, to be absent about one month. -Further particulars of both weddings will be given next week. C. B. Matson went to Emmetsburg last Monday to investigate the truth of the rumor as to< the beauty of the Emmetsburg school ma'ams— so he told a REPUBLICAN reporter at the train. It was stated in one of the Emmetsburg papers that the Emmetsburg school' ma'ams far outshone the Algona teachers in point of beauty. Birch declares that the Emmetsburg people will have- to take that statement back if he finds out that it is not true. The average daily temperature last week was 6;® below normal. Light frosts were reported in all districts in the state on these mornings. The rainfall wa* very slight and not well distributed'. Considerable replanting of corn will be made necessary by the depredations of the cut worm. The crop outlook in general is more promising than at the corresponding, date in 1890. Next week's Crop BuKetin will have a much more encouraging report to make for northern Iowa on account of our recent copious rains. At the meeting of the council last Saturday evening a petition by €feo. B. Bacon et al for a side walk to run as follows:— Beginning at the $e corner of block 24 running thence east to the ne corner of block 226 of Call's add was referred to committee on s^'eetsand alleys. The street commissioner was authorized to employ men and commence on Monday, June 1st to put all side walks in the city in first .cjass condition and charge the cost thereof to abutting property owners. r |*toe water works committee was empowered to send for aa expert to examine the well if deemed advisable. Council adjourned without further business of particular interest. wf&th 1 . ..ad the aiy tost- n , iotidiy ;the,at%M&iieS have been tnnch greater.

MiiO Sh&rtttan, Of Fredericksburg, Iowa, delivered the oration of the day, Col, Sherman is '-tone of the boys who were there," and his speech was particularly appreciated by the members of the G. A. H,, to whom it was especially addressed, He has lost none of the enthusiastic patriotism that took him into the army and to the front in 1801, and all'who were •capable of being moved by patriotic sentiments and impulses did not fall to catch the spirit of the speaker. If .any old time copperheads were present in the audience they perhaps did not enjoy Col. Sherman's part in the exercises. He believes that a copperhead who stayed in the rear and helped to send Union soldiers to their death in '61 is m just about as much of a traitor at heart % to the old flag now as then and deserving of about the same consideration as of old. Lack of space this, week makes it impossible for us to give even an abstract of the speech, which we Would otherwise gladly furnish our readers. It was a speech by an old veteran to the "boys" who had fought and suffered together and was full of feeling eloquence. The column was formed at 1:80 in the afternoon and the march was made to the cemetery in the following order: Co. F followed by Sons of Veterans. Then came Comrade Tellier'st Boy Zouaves, followed by little girls with flowers, and lastly the G. A. R. Post of Algona and visiting veterans. The ceremonies of the day were concluded with the usual exercises at the soldiers' square in the cemetery from the G. A. R. ritual,and an address by Commander Bailey of the G. A. R. School Graduation. Following is a partially completed program of the exercises of the senior class of the high school, who will be graduated on the evening of June 12tb, at 8 o'clock, at the- Congregational church.

InviNGTON, June 2.—Our community is in a higji state of excitement owing to the cases of diphtheria in our midst. Two families are quarantined. Sadie McClellan has been very low with diphtheria the past few days but is slowly recovering. Mrs. S. R. Raiiey, living east of town, who for some time has been very sick, is slowly recovering. The latest fad in our city is midnight serenades by a quartette of young bloods. We willi not mention any names. There were no services at the Presbyterian church last Sabbath on account ®£ the diphtheria.. Our schools have been closed on ac- eount of the diphtheria in this vicinity. Mrs. L. J. Clarke, of Eagle Grove, •who has been visiting relatives in this vicinity the past week, returned home Tuesday. Chas. Bates is the champion fisherman of this burg. Ask him how much liis last fish weighad and what kind it was. It is nothing singular of late to see a S«ung man start out in the evening ar- isiyed in a black silk stove-pipe hat, and return later iiitlie evening with a aed bandanna adorning his cranium. It is seldom that a man threshes two crops of grain in one summer, but such will probably be the case with D. Sample this season as he threshed out some iwo or three hundred bushels of oats Monday, having stored it in his barn during the winters. * , DIED—Lena Swanson, two years old, idaughter of N, Swanson, section foreman of this place-, died of diphtheria May 30th after an< illness of only three days.
