DeForrest of Emmetsburg may be given an assistant and have charge of the church. Wesley is now an incorporated town. An election was held last Saturday and of the eighty-three votes cast seventy-six were for incorporation and seven against. A hard light has been made for the past two or three years for incorporation and the pro-incorporation party are jubilant over their success. . J. C. Frank has gone to Waterloo to take temporary charge of the clothing business formerly conducted by his brother who is now connected with the Western Farm Land Company. Julius goes with the expectation of a return to Algona some time in the future, and the REPUBLICAN hopes that his expectations will be realized. Through an oversight last week we failed to chronicle the birth of u ten pound boy to Mr. and Mrs. Jno. Switzer who live about four miles east of Algona. May the young man live to grow up in the image of his father and become one of the prosperous farmers of Kossuth county. A noted bicyclist ventures the following among other suggestions, which wheelmen would do remember as the riding season approaches: In a a hilly region a person should have his suspenders geared low and the upper rim of his trousers in advance of the center of foot action when going up the grade. This will grant a forward inclination of the body which will keep one's dinner in front and prevent the liver from scraping against the lower vertebrae and tendons of the dorsal I'm. Mr. A. Ericksou for the past year manager of the Queal lumber yard left lust Wednesday for St. James Minnesota where he is to take charge of another of the C^ueal yards. There are various rumors as to the cause of his removal but it is well understood that there was nothing wrong with his management of Mr. Queal's business. His removal to §fc. James is probably altfng the line of a promotion to a more responsible position. Mr. Brickson is a competent business man and was successful in building up a /good Company, We And IIOAV the cigar stores and restaurants uro to close on Sunday hereafter.

Winter term: 1st grade, $34; 2d grade, $:-H); 3d grade, $27. The notice of Incorporation of the Algona Cooperative Creamery Co- is published in this issue. There is every believe that the creamery us a co-operative institution will prove a source of pro (it to the stockholders, and a benefit to the farmers of the community. From the number of shares already subscribed there is no reason to doubt that the creamery will start out with plenty of patronage. There is territory immediately tributary to Algona sufficient to support several creameries. There is money in dairying and through the Co-operative creamery the farmer gets all the money there is in it. The newspaper editor follows hard upon the heels of the surveyor and has his paper going before the original plat of the now town is completed and a post office has ben established. "The Thompson Herald" was one of the new papers among our exchanges this week. Thompson is' the ne\\ r town in Winne- '•The LeMars Normal School Association"has just been incorporated with a capital stock of $100,000. and a fine school building will be immediately erected, if Algona would put a corporation like that behind the Northern Iowa Normal School! Some move of the kind will be necessary to make the School what the town would like to see it. There is a great deal of uncertain- j ty about State appropriations.With the stimulus of a little money the school could be put in a flourishing condition and started out upon the road to become a selfsupporting institution. If great things are expected of the Northern Iowa Normal School, great things will have to be done for it, and the people of Algona will have to see that great things are done. That is the present Normal School situation. Much is being said in the papers just now upoc the subject of good roads. It is to be hoped that the dirt road with its mud holes and chuck ruts will one day be a thing of the past in this County. A movement for good streets in Algona would not be untimely. State street has been almost impassable ever since the frost began to go out of the ground. The busses were auandoned a couple of weeks ago for light buggies and carriages. The draymen and teamsters who are so fortunate as to possess four horses manage to get through the mud. but Jay Uodgnian's ten cent delivery horse lias had u hard time of it. The ten cent delivery business has got to go on, mud 7 ov no mud and Jay is hardly to blame for Liu: cruc'ty pratic- ed on his horse. The, ci'.y of Algona is the culpable, party. Any reasonable expense incurred by putting u bottom in the street that will stay there would be; a'n'iatU:! 1 of economy. Among which is the Celebrated Jackson Waist, Extra LongWaisted Dress, Form Corsets, Gloves of all kinds* Hosiery, Toilet Articles, etc., etc. Setchell & Setchell. Wall Paper!

The town started out with an auction sale oi: lots last week. The bidding was spirited and lots were sold at a rate to indicate that Thompson is going to make another of the live little towns of northern Iowa. We hope the Herald will be able to wiggle along until the town gets large enough to support a newspaper. , The patent medicine man was with us last week and endeavored to have the Begister insert his advertising at less than hal-f -rates, but it wouldn't work, lie told us how he had secured numerous contracts at such figures and that he made one with the Al£° na BE- PUiuavAX for $12 that amounted to $2ti at our rates. We quoted him the same rates we charge our home men, and we want to say right here that if any of our advertisers find where we are doing advertising of same nature cheaper for another we will agree run their "ail" the remainder of .!. 11. Jones is unloading another car of tile celebrated A. A. Cooper wagons to flay. This is th'c second car of those wagons received by Mr. Jones this season. The popularity of the Cooper wagon is another evidence of what an honest-made vehicle will accomplish for its owner or manufactuaer It is hard to keep up with the demand for the Cooper.

The above is from the liancroi't Register of lust week and is- about as near the truth as a patent medicine man and a newspaper editor are in the habit of hitting when they are making a bargain. The REI J UB£IOAK has not made a contract at $12 with a traveling patent medicine man since the present management has had charge of the business. The REFUJJUCAN carries considerable foreign advertising but gets good rates for every Hue of it.
