A cordial invitation is extended to all to take supper at the Congregational church parlors on Thursday evening, beginning at 5:30. The ladies of the church will serve the supper. Supt.

Our Burt correspondent gives the particulars of the distressing accident which happened to Oscar Naudain last week resulting in the loss of his left hand. A more serious misfortune could scarcely have befallen him. The coming meeting of the Upper Des Moines Editorial association promises to be one of interest and will probably draw a good number of editors from northwestern Iowa. The program Cashier, mttli. J. VJ.W. will be published as soon as completed. The editors have been promised free entertainment and it will be to the interest of every citizen of Algona to see that every thing is made pleasant for thftm. P-tVW^^' tions are not perfect.

In his letter this week Bill Nye tells about his recent accident at Yazoo, Mississippi, where he fell out of the rear door of the opera house and come near breaking his neck. Miss Randall has organized a chorus class which meets at the Normal School building two evenings each week. The class now has a membership of over twenty. All who wish to join the class will be welcome. Win. Burton one of the new setW<ers up in the north end of the county was in town yesterday. lie is enthusiastic about the boom in northern Kossuth. Last spring he purchased 400 acres of land near Ledyard at $10 per acre. Land adjoining him is now worth about $15 per acre. The REPUBLICAN received subscriptions during the month of December from ninety-one subscribers, tbe majority of them clearing up arrearages and paying a year in advance. If any county paper in northern Iowa can make a better showing than that we would like to hear about it. One of the most enterprising business men in Kossuth county is J. E. Beattie of "Whittemore. lie is quite a frequent advertiser in the REPUBLICAN and we judge that he finds it a paying medium through which to talk to his customers. People who deal with Mr.,-Beattie and people who do not deal with him should read his advertisement of special bargains in this issue. The matter of putting in additional water mains in the spring is being seriously considered. It is probable that a main will be laid along Call street to the C. & N. W. depot also along McGregor and Thorington streets. Hydrants will be put in at convenient distances. The city will probably contract to furnish water for the C. & N. W. Road. The Railroad will put in a tank at the northwestern depot and stop using the old one between Algona and Irvington. The editor of the REPUBLICAN was in Burt last week and was surprised to note how the little burg is growing. The number of new buildings that have gone up in the last few months is quite surprising and there are a number now in process of erection. Among the new business institutions is a bank. The building is now being erected and the bank will open business about the first of Feburary. The bank is backed principally by Algona capital. C. C. Chubb is president of the new institution, Capt. Tyrrel, vice president, and E. J. Murtaugh, cashier. The bank will be a great convenience to the business men of the town. From the Newton Daily Republican, Kansas, January G, we copy the following: "He comes to us armed with the cannon of the word and the sword of the spirit. God has belted him and girded him for mighty victories. He never tramples the rights of a fellow minister under his feet. All people washed in the blood are his brothers and friends. Our city is receiving a measureless blessing and we are only in the beginning of the work. The field is white already for the harvest and the reapers are multiplying every day. Last evening some of the most wonderful accounts of prayer answered were related." In a recent letter the evangelist states that they have 25 cottage prayer meeting a day in different parts of the city and hundreds are offering themselves for personal work in winning souls. On account of the grand sweep tbe meeting has taken in Newton a town of 8000 inhabitants] blear-eyed, hawk-nosed, claw-fingered son of Belial suggested a day or two ago that he would rather have the Flail aginst him than'for him. He thought different before this paper gave him a twist for his meaness. The door of the Thorington House was locked up Monday on morning and will stay locked indefinitely. The hotel seems to be haunted by the genius of bad luck for all who undertake to run it. We are at a loss to know whether the fault lies in the management or whether the trade is not sufficient to support three hotels. We are not informed what Messrs. Hudson and Turner, who have been managing the hotel for the last few months, have in prospect. On the earnest solicitation of a number of our citizens, Dentist Cole of Algona, was induced to come here this week to attend to some work, and owing to no paper being issued last week was unable to advertise his visit beforehand. He is widely known as one of the best dentists of the state, and if a sufficient number have work for him to make it profitable, he will make some visits here in the future. cepted by the Professor and he is seriously considering the matter of contracting for a full five years lease. The board were wise in offering Prof. Chaffee a long time contract. He does not now have the uncertainty of remaining beyond the present year before him, and can shape his plans for the school with reference to future and permanent results. It requires more than a year's time to build up a school and when the right man is found it is the proper thing to retain him. The Normal School now has the promise of permanent success before it. The retention of Prof. Chaffee will meet with the approbation of all the patrons and supporters of the institution. lie will be at Dr. Malin's office over the drug store the balance of this week. —Livermore Gazette. Many inquiries have come in respecting the new maps'of Kossuth county that we havfi been advertising. We hope to have them ready for delivery in a few weeks. The maps have delayed beyond our expectation owing to circumstances over which we have no control. Prof. Carlton of the Normal School, who has been -making the drawing, was called to Nebraska a few days ago and the map had to wait until his return. The drawing will be sent to the engraver this week and the map will be printed as soon as the engraving is received. You will want a correct map of Kossuth county and we will have the only correct one in existence. Two Thieves Caught and Punished. A shrewd guess might be made as to the perpetrator of some of the petty thefts of which complaint has been heard from time to time recently. A man, who will steal a pail of jelly and try to fasten the theft on a 16-year-old boy, will be guilty of anything from robbing an express company down to bootlegging. Last Wednesday evening as Char.""e Larson, who drives the delivery wagon for Patterson Bros., was closing the store for tho night, he came upon two pails of jelly stowed away in the corner of the yard at the rear of the store. The pails were marked "Langdon & Hudson," and it turned out that they had been stolen from a bench in front of their store early in the evening. Marshal Dailey was notified and he secreted himself in a convenient locality and waited for the thief to return for his jelly. About ten o'clock, E. D. Leatherman, alias "Doc," and Lute Calkins, alias ''Cork," came out of the rear of Alderman's billiard hall and picked up their booty. They were promptly arrested by Marshal Dailey. Each one tried to explain how guileless and innocent he was, and how the other fellow had stolen the jelly. They were both arraigned before Esquire Taylor Friday afternoon on the charge of theft. Each one acted as his own I lawyer, and the way he conducted cross-examination of the other was"a caution. tions setting forth the views of the alliance, to be presented for consideration at the evening meeting. The evening session was called to order by President Tellier at 7:30 and opened with scripture reading by ReVt McBride of Wesley, and prayer by Rev^ Davidson. JThe committee on resolutions then reported the following which were unanimously adopted: Resolved, 1st; That the Kossuth County Temperance Alliance hereby pledges its moral, religious and political support of the prohibitory law as it now stands upon the statutes of our state. 2nd; That, as no significant moral progress has ever been achieved in the history of our glorious Republic by wickedly compromising with sin, therefore we herald as our future motto, in this prohibition conflict. "Loyalty to God, Righteousness and Native Land," versus every possible compromise. 3d; That, it is our conviction that the recent election has not discouraged the adherents of prohibition, but has only made them more -earnest, vigilant and determined. We believe the license system wrong in principle and a failure in practice and that prohibition is right, and not a failure in practice; ' that there is no change in the intelligent sentiment of this communi» ty and that in view of these facts we most earnestly protest against any effort to repeal the present prohibitory law of this state. REV. W. II. DOUWAIID, REV. W. E. DAVIDSON, REV. A. G. FLANIGAN. After several short but timely addresses the convention was adjourned. to meet again at the call of the executive committee. Several new members were added to the roster of the alliance which now numbers more than 100 names. "My Was saved by Hood's Sarsparilla," says Mr. B. B. Jones of Alna, Mnine.

The remains of Mrs, Bushnell youngest daughter of Mrs. Mclntyre who died at her home in jtfew Hampton Iowa, last Tuesday night "were interred in the cemetry at this place last Friday afternoon. She leaves three small children and an infant but a few days old. Mrs. Mclntyre and daughter Jennie have gone to New Hampton and will make their future home with Mr. Bushnell. Mrs. Bushnell was a former Algona girl and had many friends in this city. She was about M years of age. MHS. C1IAS. M12DIN. Mrs. Chas. Medin died last Sunday morning of typhoid fever, aged about 40 years. The funeral services took place yesterday afternoon and were conducted by Rev. Dorward. She leaves a husband and five children, the youngest but 18 months old. Two or three of the children are now dangerously sick with the fever. The family are in quite destitute circumstances. MRS. OlllUN CALKINS. Mrs.Orrin Calkins died at her home in Portland Township last Saturday morning and was buried in the Portland cemetrey Monday afternoon. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Davidson. A husband and several married children survive her. She had been a resident of Iowa for 29 years and was 69 years of age at the time of her death. She had been a sufferer for over 20 years. A (ireut Surprise Is in store for all who use Kemp's Balsam for tbe Throat and Lungs, the great guaranteed remedy.

It never fails to cure acute or chronic coughs. I All druggists sell Kemp's Balsam. Large Bottles 00 cents and f 1. boy's memory tricks he had been up to. "Uork" replied with a broad side of questions and a chapter or two of "Doc's' 'unpublished history. Had the Squire allowed thorn to continue telling on each other he would have known more about some of the cussedness that has been going on in Algona than will ever be found out. When it came the Squire's turn to talk he lined Leatherman $10 and costs, the costs amounting to the bigger part of a second $10. The boy got off with a fine of $1.00, out of consideration for his youth and the bad company he got into when he picked up with Doc Leatherman. Leathermau is a man with grandchildren and Calkins is a boy about 16 years of age and u candidate for the penitentiary unless he reforms. Under the circumstances his fine was light enough but Leatherman should have been fined ten times $10.00. Why do we admire the pretty feet of a young lady? "All's well that ends well."
