One of | lie most widespread and terrific windstorms known in years swept ae'rowH the country last Wednesday and Thursday from the Rockies to Uie Atlantic. 1'i'povlK received by the Uic- niMc.'o; I'rom correspondents hull- oato that the damage from the storm in Kossutli comity will amount up into tho thousands of dollars. Out upon the* prairies where no obstruction was offered to the storm the force of the. wind was .simply terrific. Buildings were unroofed and blown down, windmills were wrecked, everything that offered an obstruction to the wind had to suffer. A corn crib belonging to .lames Warburlon of Hebron township was blown a distance, of HO rods and shattered to pieces. For particulars as to the damage done by the storm see reports of our special correspondents. Had there been much snow upon the ground we would have had a bli///ard unparalled in the memory of the oldest inhabitant.

LOCAL NEWS AND NOTES. at Starr's Arthur Waldo left his place in the REPUBLICAN oflice yesterday evening and is planning to go to Omaho where he expects to find work until cold weather when he will go to the Pacific coast. He is a rapid compositor and will have no difficulty in holding down a good position in any city oflice. The spring term of the Normal School opens next Tuesday, March 22. The attendance will be good, probably a little more than half that of the winter term. Several of last fall's students will be in and a number of new ones. The faculty remains the same,with the exception that Miss Cheaffe's place will Paul Alexander Johnstone the World famous Mind Header. One of the most extraordinary and unusual entertainments ever held in Algona will bo given at the Congregational church Friday evening,March 2oth. Every one lias heard of Paul Alexander Johnslone and the remarkable feat of mind reading in Chicago that made him prominent a year ago last winter. As a test of his powers it was agreed that a certain member of a committee appointed to make the test, was to leave the Auditorium hotel in Chicago, drive by n circuitous route to some one, of the numerous hotels in the city and select some name upon the register. He was then to return to the Auditorium hotel and Mr. Johnstone wa.s to take his place beside him in the hack,drive blindfolded over the same route; to the same hotel lind the name in the register blind folded and blind folded write it out in full. The feat was successfully accomplished. Since that time Mr. Johnstone lias been traveling and going exhibitions of his prychological powers. How much there may be in his claims the HEPUI!- lican is unable to say, but it is certain that he can accomplish feats of mind reading that are astounding and inexplicable. The people of Algona are to have an opportunity of seeing the greatest psychological wonder since Washington Irvington Bishop and of judging for themselves if there is anything in the mistic power of mind reading.

The Farmer's Institute was frozen out by the blizzard last week. We have received no notice of a future date for tlie meeting. As we are about to go to press we learn that Mrs. Robert Stephenson died last evening. She had been sick for several weeks. Mrs. D. W. Clark, of Monroe, Wis., who is visiting her daughter Mrs. Leonard Holm, is very sick and not expected to live. H. B.

Wisconsin people as well as Illinoisans are being attracted by the lands of Northern Iowa. Charlie Waldo will be down from Minneapolis the latter part of the week to take a place in the grocery with E. J. .Gilmore. We understand that Charlie Nolto expects to leave the store but has not yet secured another position. Dr. A. A. Beane of Burt called at the REPUBLICAN office Monday to get one of our maps of Kossuth. The map is something that every business and professional man in the county has need of. We have the only correct map of Kossuth county in existence. Arthur Tellier has had so many calls for services as County surveyor, that he was forced to give up his school at Burt and get ready for business as soon as the roads are passable. A. A. Sifert is filling out the remainder of his term. Forest Stough advertises the biggest cut in the prices of harness ever heard of in this county. Read the figures in his advertisement. If you find it necessary to purchase a new harness it will pay you to come to Algoua and go to Forest Stough's to get it. It was intended to close the series of revival meetings at the Methodist church last Monday evening but the interest continued to such an extent that it was not deemed advisable. The meetings are still in progress and will be continUed indefinitely. II. L. Lindsay has sold his farm four miles east of Algona to Mr. J. E. Paul of Jaiiesvillt) Wisconsin and expects to remove to Green Mountain,Marshall county, his former home. He will sell his stock and household goods at Ambrose Call, C. C. Chubb and several other parties are in Des Moines looking after Normal School interests. Everything seems to be favorable to securiug an appropriation. It is the general opinion that if an appropriation is made for a school the location should be given to Algona and it is also conceded that an appropriation should be made as there is apparent need'for more normal schools. Algona has the advantage of a favorable location and an already prosperous institution, all of which speak in her favor. The prospect for a state institution was never more nattering. Geo. E. Clarke is improving. The REPUBLICAN is glad of it, glad to see Mr. Clarke recover for personal reasons and glad for the further reason that it will leave "dr" Hathaway without an excuse to leave our $10,000 libel case continued for another term. If Geo. W. Argo 1 gets over his lame back and the other results of his tumble down the elevator shaft the case will probably come off. It will take a man with a pretty stiff backbone to win that libel case for "dr." Hathaway and we commend the wisdom of Mr. Argo in wishing to have his spinal column in good order before he undertakes the task. The attendance at the Republican supply the demand for maps of Kossuth county and have on hand and for sale a large number of elegant maps printed upon a good quality of card board. We have the only correct map of Kossuth county in existence, showing all townships, roads, post offices, churches, creameries, school houses, etc., everything correct to date. The maps are printed in three tints from a wax engraving and we have received many flattering compliments upon the quality of our work. The entire process of tinting and printing is done in the REPUBLICAN office upon our new press and will compare with work done upon any press designed especially to print in colors. Single maps for sale at the REPUBLICAN office or will be sent post paid upon receipt of 25 cents. Maps designed especially for the use of real estate agents, printed upon heavy book paper, will be furnished in lots of 260 and upwards at reasonable prices. UNION TEMPEBENCE MEETING. A union temperence meeting was held at the Congregational church last Sunday evening. The meeting was presided over by Mrs. T. H. Conner and addresses were delivered by Eugene Tellier, Rev. Davidson and Mrs. C. A. Ingham. The sentiments expressed were strongly in favor, of the maintenance of the present law and graduate of tho Department of Stenography of the State University, Columbia, Mo., will teach the above branches during the spring term of the NORTHERX IOWA NORMAL SCHOOL. Miss Waters has excellent' testimonials of her knowledge of the theory of Shorthand and of her success as a Practical Stenographer. The entire afternoon of each day will be given to the study, and it is expected that students who can devote this much time to it will be able to complete the course in three months. The Eclectic System will be used. We publish a few opinions as to the success of that system in both REPORTING AND AMANUENSIS WORK and the time required to learn it: A SUCCESS IN AMANUENSIS WORK. "With less than two months' instruction I could report any ordinarily rapid speaker."—C. Q. TnoitPE,Chariton, la. "With a comparatively small amount of study, in three months I acquired a speed of 135 words per minute." -J, E. CHALLENGER, Stenographer with Philadelphia and Heading Railroad, Phila. "After one months' lessons in Ecletic Shorthand, and some daily practice for two months, I could easily write 150 words a miuute."—E. ELOIS BAKER, Stenographer with the Current, Chicago. "I commenced the study of Eclectic Short-hand the 12th of June, and on the 15th pt August following I accepted a position as amanuensis with one of the largest firms of Chicago, which position I still hold. The system is easily acquired and is just the thing for practical work." —JENNIE A. WELLS, Stenographer to McCormick Harvesting Machine Co., Chicago. "The comparative ease with which the Eclectic Short hand is written is truly wonderful. I am now writing 160 to 170 words per minute."—W. W. WHITE, Stenographer to N. & G. Taylor Co., Philadelphia. A SUCCESS IN COURT REPORTING. From Miss Mary S. Minor, Court Stenographer, Dallas, Texas: "After a series County Convention last Friday was not large,owing to the condition of the roads and the state of the weather. A number of townships were not represented. S. C. Platt, of Lu Verne, and R. B. Warren, of Algona, were elected as temporary chairman and secretary. The usual committees on organization and credentials were appointed. The against the passage of the Gatch bill or any other bill for license.. A committee consisting of Mrs. L. B. Reed, E. Tellier and M. C. Bally were appointed to draft resolutions. A copy of the resolutions has not been furnished the REPUBLICAN but the sentiments expressed were strongly condemnatory of any measure looking ^public auction Wednesday March 23rd. Will Hajjcard arrived from Milwaukee last Friday morning and has assumed charge of the mechanical department of the REPUBLICAN. He has been at work for over a year in different job offices in Milwaukee and is an expert job printer. If you have anything in the job printing line and want some neat work bring it in. Reports of damages from the wind storm of last AVednesday are coming in from all over the county. One man estimates that at least lifty wind mills were blown down : or badly damaged iu the county. A barn belonging to Andrew Cosgrove of Wesley was blown over, and L. V. Hills uew house was m.oyed from its foundation. The wind blow a perfect hurricane all day. committee on credentials recommended the temporary organization permanent and the report was adopted. The following were selected as delegates to the State Convention which is to be held in Des Moines tomorrow: J. R. Jones, A. A. Call, J. G. Smith, S. Mayne, Geo. E. Boyle, Geo. Lacy, W. J. Burton, II. Ingham. Parties who contemplate getting married and wish something especially nice, in the line of wedding invitations are advised to call at the REPUBLICAN oflice a reasonable time in advance of the date when the interesting event is to occurr and make their selections of wedding stationery from our book of samples. We always carry wedding goods in stock but can'fc afford to carry a sufficient variety to suit the taste of everybody who may take it into their head to get rnarrUd. The REPUBLICAN takes the liberty to offer this suggestion because we have several times within the past month been unable to suit the various tastes of various people who delayed ordering their wedding invitations until Avithiu a day or two of the time when the wedding was to take place. Come in early and make your selections from our book of samples. toward a repeal of prohibition. of six lessons, and a few hours' daily , study for three months, I was able to re- ' port court testimony, and to read my notes as readily as longhand. Such IB the simplicity of its construction, the flexibility of its lines, and its perfect legibility, that tbe work necessary to attain verbatim speed if> only pastime." [Miss Minor writes 180 words a minute.] From Sims Ely, Official Reporter Eighth Judicial District, Eas: "Having used tbe Eclectic system in court reporting I speak advisedly when I say that it is fully capable of meeting every requirement. As to the time required to learn the system, I regard it settled beyond controverse—not alone by my experience, but that of others known to me— that all the proficiency requsite for general reporting of every description can be acquired in three months' study." Prom R. L. Davison, Official Reporter Nineteenth Judicial District, Kas.: "la my examination for this position I averaged 169 words per minute for five consecutive minutes."
