While Europe is threatened with war and cursed with famine, we are in the midst of peace and .prosperity. The United States is a good •country to live in.' ' '• :• ^.^ GRANGE - STORE 4 The Journal made an excellent showidg for Sioux City in its review edition of •January 1st. "Sioux City" has become a synonym for hustle and enterprise. " Her •business men have imbibed the spirit of the live northwest in a concentrated form There is only one Sioux City. "^ ' Pearl buttons are now being made in the United States and sold at a lower figure than they were before the McKin •ley-bill placed an increased tariff upon them., all of which goes to show that the tamff is a is a tax "anyway"q. e. d. —according to democratic mathematics.' A small pamphlet, giving a summary of the .record of the republican party, has just-been issued by the National Republican League. It should be in the possession .of every republican and protectionist. Write to the National Republican League, 205 5th avenue, New York for a copy of the pamphlet. The late Senator JPiumb was one of. the few republican members of congress who the total circulation-of the REPUBU- ier, the REPUBLICAN looks back upon a successful and prosperous year. A year CAN was scarcely 1100 copies weekly. 1 Dating the month of December last the regular weekly edition of the REPUBLICAN was 04 quires or 1536 copies. The figures given, represent in the main the increase of circulation within the county —a fact <tf some interest to home advertisers. It has been our theory that the people of Kossuth county should have a county newspaper, a paper devoted not alone to the interests of Algona, but to the interests of every town and community in the <entire county. Following out this theory the REPUBLICAN has secured a special correspondent for every town and country post office in the county.and now publishes more country correspondence each week than any other paper in northern Iowa. A special department for Bancroft fills an entire page. Burt and •fcedyard each has a department of its own occupying a full two columns. The degree in which these special departments are appreciated may be estimated after a glance at the advertisements contained in their columns. The business men of Bancroft,,Burt and Ledyard find the RE PUBLICAN a profitable advertising medium because its readers are the people who patronize them. It is gratifying to the management of the REPUBLICAN, to note ma growing subscription list and an increased advertising patronage, the appreciation in which the paper is held by the -people of Kossuth county. After NEW ABSTRACT OFFICE. HAY^RIOJE, Abstracters, opprosed the McKinley bill, watching the effect of the bill for uv cr a year Mr. Plumb recently expressed the opinion that it was "a wise piece of legislation." The .tariff act of 1890 has not only failed to justify the evil prophecies of its enemies, but so far as immediate results are concerned jt has more than realized the promises of its friends, A recent number of New York Judge represented President Harrison, dressed m the armor of a medieval knight, wandering through, a dense forest haunted with spectral images of Elaine. 'The woods are full of him," The great Sectary of State has become, a colossal flg- •«- in national politics. Reciprocity has le him stronger than his parly.

The begging of the year has brought its usual changes in the officers in the courthouse. Several competent and efficient officers retire and other competent and efficient officers take their places.Mr Stephens has been sheriff for three consecutive terms and has the record of a faithful officer. He has been offered the position of Chief of Police of Sioux City and will probably accept the situation. Mr. Graham, who succeeds him in office is a democrat but that does not in any way disqualify him for sheriff. He is one of the successful business men of the county and it was against his own protest that he forsook a good business to accept office at the hands of his party. Miss Carey,the retiring superintendent has many friends who would have given much to have seen her re-elected. Her efforts to raise the standard of teachers in the county made many enemies and helped-to bring about her defeat last November. Miss Carey is succeeded by a man who formerly held the office and who then made a record that helped to reject him. Mr. Reed has a very satisfactory history as county superintendent behind him, Mr. Lantry succeeds himself ia the treasurers' office. He was re-elected by an overwhelming majority and steps back intake shoes of a very popular officer.
