DIED:—Mrs. Philip Crose, one of the oldest.settlers of Kossuth County died last Sunday evening at the residence of Mr. Win. Carter near Irvington. For several years past Mrs. Crose has made her home with her daughter Mrs. S. II. McNutt. She had been on a visit to friends in the south part of the county and had got as- far as Mr. Carter's on her return home when she was taken sick. The funeral was held yesterday morning at 10 o'clock. Mrs. Crose was u most estimable lady and ranked high in the estimation of all who knew her. Clarence Cooper, a son of the widow Cooper who lives in the south part of town, is a dangerous young man. Last Sunday morning he had some kind of a dispute with his mother and got down the shot gun threatening to shoot her. Mrs. Cooper made complaint to Marshal Daily who took charge of the boy and kept him until some time Tuesday when he was discharged by the mayor, his mother failing to appear and lodge complaint against him. If the boy shows any further signs of developing a blood-thirsty notion he should be sent to the reform school. He is about 14 years of age. J. B. Swineburne, editor of the Humboldt Kosmos was in town last Wednesday getting acquainted with some of the republicans. Mr. Swineburne is a candidate for the office of chief clerk of the House and says that he has good prospects of securing the position. If anybody is entitled to recognition from a political party it is the editor. He is forced to bear the brunt of the political battle for his party and he gets mighty little pay for his services. Abraham Lincoln recognized the services of the republican editor and usually gave him the post office in prefer-! ence over everybody else in the town. The Iowa State Sabbath School Association has just issued a very valuable statistical report, based upon facts, not estimates. The total number of Sunday (schools in the state is 4574, two- thirds of these continue the entire year. The total S. S. enrollment is 362,461; about one-fourth are adult*—Hence only 40} per cent of the public eehool population of our state are in our Sunday schools. Fremont county hae the largest per cent.

Louis Lessing has some special bargains in rockers and other furniture. Get your wife a nice rocking chair for a Christmas present. The second sermon on revivals will be delivered in the Baptist church next Sunday evening. The interest in the work is increasing weekly. While central Iowa is all under snow the October weather in this part of the state continues. The equator has evidently shifted its location and settled down to the north of us. The editor of the REPUBLICAN was informed by an official of the Milwaukee road that the talked of fast train would probably not be put on until some time in the spring. Letters remaining uncalled for in the postoffice at Algona week ending Dec. 12 1891 Aug. Bethka, Mr. Greenbaum, Eric Johaunsen Dale, Mrs. Ida Winner, Mr. Chester Parker, Mr. Frederick Maen, O. B. Robinson. F. W. Dingley has as fine a stock of holiday goods as the REI'UULICAN reporter has looked upon for a long season. You will certainly miss it if yon buy your Christmas gifts before looking overhis stock. Read Dingley's ad. There will be morning and evening services at the Episcopal church next Sunday. In the morning the rector will preach on "Advent Lessons suggested by the Biblical narrative of the Flood." In the evening "Darkness as a part of the Divine order." We direct the attention of our readers to the advertisement of the grocery firm of Hudson and Langdon, successors to Townsend and Langdon. The new firm will do business on a strictly cash basis and will be able to meet and undersell all competition. Give the new firm a trial. An old man by the name of Hilton who lives south of Bode, got after his hired man with a hatchet because he refused to get up in the morning. The hired man objected to being tomahawked in bed and entered complaint against the old man who was bound over to appear before the grand jury. Subscribers who have made a selection from among the list of lithographs we are offering as premiums will please call at the REPUBLICAN office as the pictures are now here. Premiums are given only to those subscribers who pay up all arrearages and for one year in advance. Our premium offers will be open but a short time longer. Take advantage of them. It is no uncommon thing for subscribers of tke REPUBLICAN to come into the office and volunteer an opinion in regard to the value of our Wilson Farm department. Mi\ Wilson writes especially for the farmers of Iowa and no farmer, however experienced he may be, can read Mr. Wilson's articles regularly without finding many valuable hints and suggestions. The Wilson Farm department is one of the most valuable features of the REPUBLICAN. We had expected to publish the president's message last week but owing to the delay in the delivery of the message we were unable to do so. The message was not delivered until Wednesday afternoon after we had gone to press and we wont hold an issue of the REPUBLICAN for President Harrison or anybody else. Had the message been delivered Tuesday afternoon it would have appeared in the REPUBLICAN of Wednesday and would have been in the hands of our readers before any of the morning papers could have reached the city. We would have printed the message from the plates furnished the daily papers by the American Press association. Some of our contemporaries that use the "patent insides" printed in Chicago a week before their day of publication would have the people believe that they are giving their readers a better news service than the "home innards REPUBLICAN." Our news plates ar« made in St. Paul Tuest day evening and are on the press immediately after reaching Algona Wednesday merning. Our patents used to be printed in Chicago on the Friday previouB to each Wednesday of publication. Our telegraph page now contains news of the day previous. Before we coisuneneed printing both sides of the REPUBLICAN at home the Upper DCS Moinee expressed a desire to have its "inuardB" compared with tlie "Rtt- PUBLICAN'B plate innards" as soon as the change waa made. We have been getting along without patent insides now for over three months and not one of our Bubscribere has expressed a desire to have us return to the old order of things. W, F.

Thi North Strait STEAM LAUNDRY There Was a very indignant crowd of people ut the court house last evening, collected The Young Womans Foreign Mission- the cltyi ary society of the M. E. church had engaged the hall for an entertainment over three weeks ago. When the ladies arrived at the court house last night they found the door locked and the hall unlighted. They were very justly indignant as no notice had been given them that they could not have the hall. We understand that Judge Carr offered no objection to the hall being used and that Auditor Hoflus was not responsible. Wherever the blame rests it was an outrageous insult to the ladies. The entertainment will be held this evening at the court house hall without fail. Everybody turn out and give the ladies a good house as they have been to a great amount of trouble and have prepared an interesting and instructive entertainment. lately put iti a tiew polishing machine and affl now prepared t<i do work that will compare with that of any STEAM LA.UND&Y.
