Governor Boies has issued an order to the state militia requiring the of- ticers to furnish escorts without charge at tlie funerals of exsolcliers or sailors, when requested by G. A. 11. post commanders. We commend the good taste of the Governor in withholding the order until after election. The democrats have prepared for a big demonstration this evening in honor of the victory of Gov. Boies. They advertise to have a parade of 500 men on horseback, and music by four full brass bands. We suppose it will be a doings consistent with the size of the victory that we are sorry to acknowledge was won by Governor Boies. A fakir was on the streets yesterday selling the people. Judging from the crowd collected around him it was a good day for suckers. AVhy do people patroni/e the street fakir? A better article of goods than he yells about on the street corner can be bought at a dozen counters in Algona for less money than is usually paid the fakir. We wouldn't be surprised if the fakir we have mentioned in this item would Miss LUlie Banks lifts returned from er visit to Davenport. Miss Tina Wallace has commenced a erm of school near Ledyard. O.

One of the biggest stock sales of tlie year is to take place Wednesday, Nov. 18th. Read Anton Bohn's sale advertisement in this issue. There will be no preaching services at the Episcopal church next Sunday, as Rev. Bowen will be away on his regular monthly trip to Estherville. Mr. Charles Clark and wife of Stone City, Jonc-s County are visiting Geo. Stiulley. Stone City is the place where the "Anamosa quarries" are located. "Barn the democrats any bow," is the way Bro.

If anybody else has been libeled by the RKi'Ui'.LicAN let him now speak or ever after bold his jaw. By the time we have paid out $10,000 apiece to each of a half dozen complainants we will be pretty near to the bottom of our pile. We can't guarantee anybody his $10,000 unless he gets in his bid on time. The lire alarm was sounded yesterday afternoon about two o'clock, but the alarm proved to be without any alarming foundation. The gasoline stove in Hackman's restaurant next to the Tennant House got to acting up, On the first page of the we give the official returns for the county excepting the scattering votes which cut no material figure in the result. Mr. Westfall received 84 votes for governor and Mr. Gibson 1, making the total vote for governor 2991 us against 2408 for secretary of state last year. Mr. Tellier was elected constable on the township ticket and Mr. Balton on the democratic. The RiiPunucAN has purchased an improved "Times Mailer" and outfit, and will hereafter address its list by machinery instead of a lead pencil. The mailer is a curious mechanical- contrivance. Come in sometime on press clay and see it work. The mailer automatically puts some paste on the label, clips it off with a pair of shears and pastes it on the paper. The machine will mail all the Way up to •5000 papers per hour, according to the dexterity of the operator. A letter received recently from John Adams who is still at Genoa,Nebraska, Conducting a lumber yard contained a sample of the ballots used in voting on the Australian plan. The Australian ballot contain the names of all the candidates and a full grown ticket is about six feet long. The ballot is banded to -the voter by one of the judges of election and containes the names of at least two of the judges written across the back. The voter then takes the ballot and goes into a closet for tlie purpose and checks off the names of the candidates that be wishes to vote for. He then folds the ticket with the endorsement of the judges of election upon the outside, bands it to one of the judges who deposits it in the ballot box. No but the boys in the restaurant got it tinder control before any damage was done. Among the new advertisements in the republican this week is the ad of John Sharp the shoemaker. Mr. Sharp is a good workman and if he takes your measure for a pair of shoes you are sure to get a lit. He makes a specialty of repairing and is agent for the celebrated Eureka Leather Preservative the best shoe dressing known. The llEFUHLiCAX is a little late today—too late to catch the north mails. We have been fortunate in having a large increase of business in the job department of the BKPUI-.LICAN and our present force proves to be in- electioneering is allowed within 20 feet of the polls. Mr. Adams writes that he will be home on a vacation about the holidays. The salvation army has taken to campaigning in dead earnest. Last Sunday they marched through the streets during tlie afternoon and again in the evening. The squad of salva- tianists was made up of two men from the country in the direction of Whittemore in addition to the photographer, Beddoe, and four women, ;ill residents of the town, whose names we do not know. The oldest was a woman apparently about 50 years of age. During the afternoon the Salvationists made all the noise, but in the evening they were followed through the streets by a crowd of boys, hooting and yelling and making no small amount of disturbance. We are in sympathy with any movement for the true advancement of Christianity but don't believe the cause will be furthered in Algona by any pounding on the tambourine or yelling in the streets on Sunday. The authorities ought to see to it that, the disturbances of last Sunday night are not repeated. StJBD £ OK, llftEL A Slow* City "doctor'* Wants $10,' 000 Out of the Republican and Says He is (Mhg to Try and Oct It At the Next Term of Court. "Boctor" J. N. Hathaway of Sioux City has sued the RKPUHMCAN for libel and claims damages to the amount of $10,000. We attach very little importance to the case from the fact that the Upper Bes Moines is an interested party and the prime instigator in the action according to report. The "doctor" charges in his petition to the court that a certain "slanderous, libelous and malicious" article published in the llKPtnvucAN of the date of Oct. 7 has caused him "great distress and anguish of mind" and injured his business up in this neck of the woods at least ten thousand dollars worth since the date of the publication of the aforementioned article. Our readers will remember the article which has caused the good "doctor" so much "anguish of mind" and such a frightful falling off in his business in Kossuth county where the KEPUBLICAN circulates. They will also surmise upon recalling the article why the U. B. M. is so interested in the case, and why Harvey has spent so large a portion of his time since last Friday in advertising the fact that suit had been brought against the HKPUHLICAN. His tireless tongue has had the stimulus of a special inspiration. If the "doctor" thinks he can bluff the editor of this paper by working any $10,000 damages ancl"auguish of mind" gag, his professional nose has led him away off on the wrong scent. We purpose to say whatever we, "clog gone The North Street STEAM LAUNMY I have lately put In a new polishing machine and am^now prepared to do work that will compare with that of any STEAM LAUNDRY.

"The Grand War Panorama" presented by Mr. X. E. Evans at the court house hall Monday evening under the auspices of the public school is well worthy of special mention. It is the best stereopticon show that has ever come to Algona within the recollection of the RBPUULICAN, and well deserved the full house that turned out to see it. The audience were entertained for upwards of two hours while a panorama of over 75 war scenes was thrown upon the canvas. Mr. Evans gave a good de- DIED:—On Thursday night, November 5th, 1S01. Mrs. Jane Heed, aged 84 years, 10 months. Jane Booiie was born in Ballymire, Ireland, in December 1807. Here her girlhood days w.ere passed and here, in ISIW, she married Samuel Reed. Mr. and Mrs. Heed came to America, settling in Prattsville, New York. For eight years they lived under the shadow of the Catskills, when they emigrated, in 18-10, to southern Wisconsin buying a farm in Waukesha county. The country was very new, the Indians numerous, the neighbors few. and Mrs. Heed experienced all tho hardships incident to frontier life. On this farm they lived for a quarter of a century, seeing the country transferred from a wilderness into a beautiful land covered with thrifty farms and prosperous cities. In 186(5 Mrs. lieed came with her family to Kossnth county where she has since resided. Her latter years have been years of suffering, which she bore with .... ,. ... i • _•_.!. please" in our editorial columns, damages or no d-amages, as long as our money holds out. He needn't think that we will shut up for a little matter like $10,000. The "doctor's" attorneys are a couple of Sioux City lawyers with the classical names of Argo & McDuffie. If these gentlemen .Lave any doubts as to how we feel about having them employed by the prosecution they will please understand that this office has given them a standing invitation to ''fire away," "let 'er go Gallagher," in the words of the immortal Shakespeare: Lay on MoDuflle And dimmed be lie Avlio first cries enougliie. One of the firm, a rather boyish looking man with a complexion like a potato vino grown in a dark cellar, came up to Algona a few weeks ago on an argonautic expedition and bought five copies of the EICPUHLICAN containing the "malicious" etc. article for which he paid 25 cents. Upon balancing up our books we find that we are ahead in our game with the "doctor" just a quarter of. a dollar up to date. How the books are going to stand in the long run will remain to be determined by the court. We will be on hand when the case is called to find out how much that is. —Go to- (Over Sheptz's Drug Store.) He cuts everything by the New System and outs to fit.

He would have scription of each scene as it was presented and kept the audience in good spirits with his anecdotes and war stories. Every one seemed well satisfied with the entertainment. From the press notices and recommendations shown us by the advance agent we had been led to expect something pretty good and we were not disappointed. The gross receipts of the entertainment were over $50.00 of which the school received a good Wg percentage. If Mr. Evans ever comes b&efc this way him of a good Christian fortitude" never, «ven in her most painful moments, losing her thoughtfulness for the comfort of others. This forgetfulness of self was one of her strong characteristics. Retiring in disposition and unable to leave home her circle of friends has not been large, but to those who have come within that circle she has left a blessed memory of a life sanctiliecl through suffering. Catuvrli, Not Loral, Imt ConstHuliousil. Dr. Diu Lewis, the eminent Boston phy- sicuin, in u magazine article says: " A radical error underlies nearly all medical treatment of caturrh. It is a disease of the man, showing itself m the nose- a Local exibition a Constitutiotional trouble." Therefore, he argues, the use of suuff and other local applications is wrong, and while they seem to give temporary relief, they really do more hurtn than good. Other leading authorities agree with Dr. Lewis. Hence, the only proper method of cure for catarrh is by taking a constitutional remedylike Hood's Sarsaparilla, which, reaching every part of the bodv through the blood, does eliminate all impurities and makes the whole man healthier. It removes the cause of the trouble and restores the diseased membrane to proper condition. That this is the practical result is proveu by thousands of people who have been cured of catarrh by taking Hood's Sarsaparilla. "Your duties will be responsible," ex piained a Kentuckian to a.genllemac who applied for a situation, "anil will require great quickness of thought. There will be no time for deliberation. Do you think you are capable of ihisV" "I think so, sir." "Very well. I will think the matter over. Will you go out and take " "Dou't care if I do." The promptness of this decision so pleased the employer that he hired the man at once. Dr. B. L. St. John, of Howland, Putnam 'county, Missouri, takes especial pleasure in recommending Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, because he knows it to be reliable. He has used it in his practice for several years, mid says there is none better. It is especially valuable for colds and as a preventative and cure for croup.
