From a perusal of the paper we are led to believe that the country around Llano must be experiencing quite a remarkable boom and that real estate values are looming skyward. Mr. Call will remain south until warm weather. Britt Tribune: Johnson Brown returned from a hunting trip in Kossuth where he had been around the jungles and wilds bordering on the plains of Algona hunting Jack rabbits. These little animals love quiet and solitude and there are thousands of them in Algona.

Bradford's office in the Gray case, Art Bush doing shorthand act. One Hamilton, a witness in the case is about to move to Dakota, hence these proceedings. The meeting at the Congregational church last Friday evening to commemorate the birth of Abraham Lincoln was well attended. A committee was appointed to draft a constitution for the organisation of a society for the mutual improvement of its members, to which all are eligible. The committee will report at the next meeting, March 4, when some suitable program will be rendered and an opportunity given for any of Algona's citizens, who are interested, to become members of the society.

Mr. Smith reports that there is good prospect for the establishment of at least three state Normal schools. The need of the schools is generally appreciated and it is expected that the committee will report favorably upon some two or three locations. We cannot guarantee that this issue of the REPUBLICAN will present the very neatest appearance and show evidences of the most perfect press work. It is the first issue printed on our new Improved Campbell Complete press and we are not sure that everything about the press is properly adjusted and in perfect running order. The press is guaranteed to do perfect work but we do not expect to get perfect work out of it without a certain amount of experimenting in the regulation of the impression, the action of the ink fountain and a hundred other things about a printing press that require adjustment to a nicety before the best press work can be accomplished. The press was set up by the foreman of the BBPUBWCAN office with the assistance of A. F. Dailey, who is an expert mechanic if there is one in Algona. You are invited to step into the Bp- office any Wednesday after- from doing business under the name of "The bank of Ledyard." Notice of the injunction was served last Friday Jones and Stephens had selected tha name for their bank which is to b open for business in about two weeks They base their claim upon the fac that their stationery had all been printed and full arrangements mad to commence business as "The Ban of Ledyard" before Weimar Bros made any claim to the name. Weime Bros., on the other hand, make the de fense that they were first to arrive on the grounds, hang out their sign, advertise in the newspapers, open their book and commence business. They disclaim any knowledge of the fact that Jones and Stephens had contemplated opening a bank under the same name. The case will be heard at the coming March term of court. W. B. Quarton has been retained as attorney by Weimer Bros. Yankee Supper at Grange Hall, Fob. 18th. An excellent supper, with tliis bill of Tare, Ye Methodist Ladles will prepare.

The Algona Creamery Company own- ng and operating the Wallace & Reed Ireamery in Algona and the creamery it Sexton is to be re-incorporated as a Do-operative Creamery Company, Rea- on for the change: Inability to do business in competition with the co-op- irative creameries of the county. Last r ear they were only able to pay the 'arm era from 40 to about 90 cents per 3wt., while the co-operative creameries were paying from 70 cents to $1.25. As result they found themselves unable o hold the patronage of the farmers ind make any money. The creamery at this place with ma- hinery, fixtures, etc., cost Mr. Wallace \bout $8,000, while the creamery at Sexton cost in the neighborhood of $1,200. The company find competition with the Co-operative Creameries so inremunerative that they are now willing to dispose of the two creameries with all machinery and appliances, and hundred tons of ice in the ice house, to a co-operative creamery company, if one is organized, at figures that should make every farmer within a reasonable distance of Algona anxious to get some stock immediately. They are willing to sell for $4,000 and parties interested have taken hold of the matter of organizing the new company. Stock has been placed at $50 per share and is being rapidly subscribed. A co-operative Company is almost certain to be organized. The co-operative creamery is no experiment in this county. Wherever the co-operative plan has been tried and the business carefully managed the result has been to the advantage of the pocket books of the farmers. The difference to the farmer between a co-operative and a proprietary creamery is a difference of dollars and cents. In the one case he gets all there is in it. and dairying is a profitable business. In thejOther case he has to divide the profits. The REPUULTCAK is glad that the scheme for the new Co-operative Creamery Company has been placed on foot, because if it goes through it will certainly put money into the pockets of the farmers around about Algona. ft. Post Wednesday niiig Feb. 24 A Washington birthday celebration and bean supper has been arranged for by the G. A. R. and Woman's Belief Corps to take place next Wednesday evening Feb. 24th.

SENECA, Iowa, Feb. 10, '92. EDITOH REPUBLICAN: Dear Sir:— I saw in the Burt Eepub- lican of Feb'y 3d an article telling of the amount of milk taken in by the Burt creamery. Your Burt correspondent thinks our one million pounds of milk a little thing, but he forgets to give any figures as to the prices paid per 100 pounds by the, Burt creamery. And then they had nearly three townships patronize their creamery, as we know they had all of Burt and about all of Plum Creek and some of Buffalo, whereas we had but one outside of Seneca and yet we received 77 cents per 100 for our milk. Our highest price was $1.25. I do not think they can beat either the 77 cent average or the $1.25 for the highest. Come, now, Brother Header, and give us some figures. HENKY WAHNEK. 18 I'oumls of Blood Is about the quantity nature allows to an adult person. It is of the utmost importance that the blood should be kept pure as possible.

They should be in every home medicine chest. A New Sinjfcr iu Israel. Mr. W. II. Campbell, "the sweet singer of Kossuth county," has long had a cinch on the poetry business "in these parts" but he now has a formidable rival. A new light is blazing in the zodiac of our literary firmament in the person of Grandpa E. O. Roberts, who can grind out anything in the poetical line on the shortest notice, satisfaction guaranteed or money refunded. Mr. Roberts brought one of his productions to the REPUBLICAN office one day last week and had a number of copies struck off which he offers for sale at five cents apiece. The poem was entitled "Universalisni Against Itself" and had to do with theological questions. As we happen to have it in type we give it to our readers. The REPUBLICAN lays claim to being the original discoverer of this new literary light. If any honor ever accrue as a result of his being introduced to the public we claim all there is in it. Let it be understood that we are backing Grandpa Roberts. Following is his "ballet of virses" as the copy was endorsed upon the back, orthography corrected in the REPUBLICAN sanctum by request of the author. Thus Pharaoh and his mighty host Had Godlike honor given, A pleasant breeze brought them with ease And took them safe to heaven. Httrruli for the Farmers. Something they all need.

So all the filthy Sodomites, When God bid Lot retire, Went in a trice to paradise, On rapid wings of fire. God saw the rebels were too bad, To own the fruitful land, He therefore took the rascals up, To dwell at His right hand. The wicked Jews who did refuse, The Lord's commands to do, Were hurried straight to heaven's gate By Titus and his crew.

The steady settlement of lands in Montana and Washinctou.the substantial growth of their cities, and the constant Increase of their railway mileage, have rendered these nates a center of Interest for busln«ss men, capitalists a net settlers. The best explanation of this growth is found in the study of the capabilities and resources oj the states, which we fully set forth in three folders entitled, "Golden Montana." "Eastern Washington" and "Western Washington," just issued by the Northern Pacific railroad. As a, route to the Northwest the Northern Pacific Kttuids unrivalled. Prom St. Paul and Minneapolis its express trains reach principal points in Minnesota, North Dakota, Manitoba, Montana. Idaho. Oieuon and Washington. It is the only line with through sleeping car service from Chicago to these states, and the only- line running both Pullman tourist and free colonist sleeping cars west of St. Paul and Minneapolis. Passengers from tbe east should ask for through ticket* via the Wisconsin Central lint* and Northern Pacillu railroad, thus securing- the advantuge of through sleeping .cars (Pullman flrst-cltiNS and Pullman tourist) frouilCui- cago. A. note worthy feature of the Northern I'ucUle route is the fact that holders of second class tickets to western points 'on this line are allowed the privilege of slopping over at Suokaue- Wash., ana all points \vest of there for the pur> pose of examine lauds.
