Flannigan is to be congratulated upon his very successful meetings. The lecture by Eugene Schaffter, at 'he Congregational church, Saturday evening, upon the subject of William Tell, was what it promised to be—very entertaining.

A Hough and one or two other men in town who believe in the observance of the Christian Sabbath notified the babers last Saturday that unless they kept closed on Sunday hereafter, information would be filed against them.

We learn this morning that the enrollment at the Normal School, including pupils in music, for the spring term, has already run up into the neighborhood of sixty instead of thirty- eight, as reported elsewhere in this paper. This is a large enrollment for the first day of the spring term. It was a surprise to Prof. Chaffee, who did not look for a large school this spring. Miss Waters of Columbus Mo., who is to teach shorthand and typewriting in the Normal School arrived Sunday morning. This department of the school will now be under the best of management. No better opportunity will ever be offered to those who may wish to avail themselves of a chance to learn shorthand and typewriting. Miss Waters is a graduate of the department of stenography of the State University of Missouri. Kev. Stevens of Swaledale arrived in town last night and called at the KE- I'UBLicAN office this morning to pay his subscription and get one of our new maps of Kossuth. When Mr. Stevens first came to Kossuth County about twenty-five years ago there were but three townships in the entire county, Algona, Irvington and Creseo, now there are twenty-five, all regular congressional townships with the exception of Harrison, Swea and Ramsay. A meeting was held at the Sheriff's office Tuesday afternoon and the organization of the Algona Co-operative Creamery Company effected, with the following officers and directors: Pres., F. L. Wilson; Vice Pres,, N. A. Pine; Sec., M. Scheuck; Treas., C. C. St. Ciair; Butter Maker, Peter Larson. Directors: F. L. Wilson, N. A. Pine, A. R. Bush, H. J. Gilbert, M. Schenck. Sixty shares of stock were subscribed, no man taking out more than one share. The creamery will commence business April 1st. It has every prospect for success as a co-operative creamery. The bill for the establishment of a State Normal School at Algona failed to pass the House when it was called for a vote last Thursday. The vote stood 45 to 44, the rest of the members absent or not voting. A National Columbian Exposition bill plays "hob" with Normal School appropriations. Algoua can get along and have a good school without an appropriation if necessary. No blame for the failure to pass the bill is due to Mr. Smith or Senator Funk. They both worked day and night to secure its passage. :*~MM-« A Million Friend*.

She lived a long, useful and Christian life, and was always a faithful wife and loving mother. She leaves behind her seven children, three daughters and "our sons, to mourn her loss. The funeral services were held at the house yesterday afternoon at three o'clock, ,he services being conducted by Rev. Flanigan. She had been a consistent member of the M. E. church for over sixty years. The remains were, taken to Monroe, Wis., i'or interment. PLAYED BALL BLINDFOLDED. CHICAGO, 111., Oct. 5.—Paul Alexander Johnstone, the mind-reader, whom a professor in the state university of Michigan claimed to have exposed, was to have played base-ball blindfolded at the National league grounds Saturday afternoon, but rain interfered and the game was called in consequence. Johnstone gave a private exhibition before members of the press and a large number of spectators, a,nd fully demonstrated that he could without seeing play the points of the game as willed by another person. Elmer Foster, the great centerfielder of the Chicago National league club, in speaking of the exhibition said: "I was present and saw Johnstone while blindfolded bat, catch, and run bases controlled by the will of Capt. Anson and Wilmot. His hood was carefully examined both before and after the exhibition, and there was no possible chance for deception. It was the most wonderful performance I ever experienced." Johnstone says in reference to the Michigan university doctor's offer of $500 if Johnstone will read the doctors mind that he (Johnstone) is willing to undergo any series of tests providing some responsible paper will appoint a committee of ten persons through whom he can work.—New York Herald, Oct. 6, 1890. At the Congregational church Algona next Friday evening. A hay stack belonging to Col. Spencer at his hay barn near the crossing of the North Western and Milwaukee railways, was burned last Saturday afternoon. About 55 tons of hay were lost. It is not known exactly how the fire originated. Some section men were burning the grass from the right of way of the Northwestern on the west of the track, and trains had just passed by on each road before the fire was discovered. Whether the firecaught by a spark from the engine or was due to the carelessness of the section men cannot be ascertained. In either case the railroads are responsible for the fire and will probably be made to pay for it. WHEN, WHO, WHAT AND WHERE! Business and Covenant Meeting-.
