The fact of the parth^hlp Wa« not made a matter of public Mews until within the last twoorihree days. Mr. Hall has been on the road most of the time during the last four weeks and has laid the foundation for a business that will wan-ant the firm in enlarging the present quarters of their factory and securing several workmen, as Mr. Shelley with the help he now has is unable to turn out the monuments as fast as they are sold. The ilErimmcAX is glad to chronicle these facts about the Algona marble works for it requires just such things as new and successful enterprises to build up a town. "We are in for everything of the kind and will be glad to say a good word for every man and ev- LOVE6 FRUIt. ery man's business that helps to build up Algona and bring capital and enterprise into Kossuth county.

On August 1st, 1891, Jessie B. Hill, of consumption She was born at Indianapolis, Ind., in February, 1866,and came to Algona in 1876 where she has remained and grown to mature womanhood. Her unassuming, affectionate and sympathetic nature secured for her the universal love and respect of all who knew her. Consumption was the result of an attack of pneumonia about two years ago. She died a firm and devoted Christian, fully believing in the great reward that crowns the faithful, and obeyed the summons gladly, leaving a message for each of her friends. She has been a member of the M. E. church of Algona since 1885. gh« Want* * Stow Where Sfcft Can It Cheaply and eat It o« the Spat. "New Yotk has a big standing fruit standing anny, I fi&aa*" eaia a woman the other day, "aadlknowof no other city where sack fine fruit catt be procured at one comer, anyway, of almost every block of buildings in the town, and at all seasons of the year. These open air fruit stands do an immense trade in the>aggregate, I am sure, and paying low reats as their owners do, they are able to sell fruit more cheaply than people who keep regular fruit stores and pay proportionate rents. "Such a merchant, when he thinks of his landlord's bill, must often envy the poor man who sells just as good fruit across the way under the cover of an awning or an umbrella, and is able to I set a cheaper price on his commodities, | because his expenses are so small. "I have often thought, however, that merchants who .keep fruit stores might add largely to their revenues if they would provide tables and seats where their customers could sit and devour the fresh fruit when they buy it. Many people are attracted by the sight of purple grapes, rosy cheeked peaches or mellow pears as they pass by the windows where the fruits are displayed, who long to sink their teeth in the luscious things, and yet do not like to do so in the street and cannot be bothered carrying the frnit home. Moreover, they do not feel like buying enough to make it worth while sending it home, so they pass on and forget it. • "Now, if they knew that inside the etore there were a table and a chair or ToldofcAt.

Mr. Shelley, the proprietor-erf the marble works, discovered that he could use a partner to .good advantage in his business and iound a very suitable partner in the person of Mr. Will Hall, who can back Resolutions of Sow*?

The following resolutions were passed at the last meeting of the [Sons of Veterans and a copy furnished this paper with a request for publication: "VVeereas, one who was once an honored member of Chas.

"If one goes into a restaurant and orders fruit, one pays a big price for it, too big; but if I, for one, could buy luscious ripe fruit at all seasons of the year in this way at the ordinary rates, I would be only too glad to eat it on the spot, standing up at a plain, unvarnished luncheon counter if need be."—New York Tribune.

"Well, as nearly as 1 can remember, it, i was connected with a pickle. I was a., guest at a dinner in Washington. Itit was not a very formal affair—merely) formal enough for the gentlemen present', to wear evening dress. There was a* dish of dainty pickles near me, andiE took one—a baby cucumber. It wag- about big enough for two bites, andil tried to cut it with my fork, whensudr denly it launched itself like a skyrocket across the table and struck the immaculate shirt bosom of a very particular swell opposite, fairly in the middle. i "I don't quite know how it could have • I happened so fortunately, but conversation had been going on so briskly, that no one save the man who had taken me into dinner saw who was the author of the aoriaent. 1 never blush, a ; £act, I trust, not to bo set down seriously to my «Ksflcedit—and I managed t to so skillfully dissemble otherwise that nobody, with the exception I have mentioned, suspected me at all.

'toiddHtoi to ft* per o^<^to cash The first complete translation of the Bible into the English tongue was effected by John Wyclifie about 1880. This was the Lollards' Bible, and a large number of manuscript copies must have been written and, circulated, for 170 copies are still in existence. There were also many transcripts of certain books, as well as of the whole Bible. WycliHe could not go to the original texts, so he translated from the Vulgate, or accepted Latin version. It was not «i perfect performance; but the reformer was prevented by death from revising it, as he doubtless intended to do. The revision, therefore, was undertaken by John Purvey, and completed in 1888, It is curious that the whole of Wycliffe's Bible was not printed as one book until 1850, when it was published under the editorial care of the Rev. Josiah ITprshall and Sir Frederic Madden. —Chambers' Journal, OfiAlirmia.Iowa. {^-CAPITAL $BO,OOO.OO.
