It Is undoubtedly the last touches of winter we will get. We learn that Ben Winkie has sold his interest in the dray line to Naudain Bros., and that he has his eye on the job of sprinkling the streets this summer. The sound of the hammer and the ring of the saw can be heard all over Algona. This is a good early start for what seems to be a successful year's building. Regular meeting of W. C. T. U. at Reading Room Friday afternoon at three o'clock. A full attendance is desired as there is important business to be attended to.

Thompson, MissR. Waild, Mr. Louis Felheimer, Gus Johnson, Fred Sumner Clarke, Eugene Criss. Now while Algona is being worked up by the stimulus of a lityle building boom it would be a good time for those who are in favor of electric lights to agitate the mutter. Many neighboring towns of lesser size and importance than Algona have excellent systems of electric lights. The expense of putting in a plant would be considerable and it ia a question for the property ownersof town to determine whether it is an that could be afforded, tt be remembered, however, that of The marriage of Miss Mary Koepka to Gus Daken is on the program for today, at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs Fred Koepka, south of Burt. Mr. Daken is of Emmetsburg, and Emmetsburg will be their home for a spell when it is their intention to move to Burt. Jay Hodgman's delivery horse showed a fine burst of speed Saturday evening. It got scared at something while Jay was unloading a parcel on Thorington street and never stopped its mad career until reaching the Hodgman residence. Part of the wagon remained attached to the horse and the rest was strung along the route. Brunson & Waterhouse have ordered quite a novelty in the way of a nickel- in-the-slot machine. They will use it for selling their popular brands of cigars. All the smoker has to do is to but in his nickel and out comes a cigar, while he is lighting his cigar the machine plays a piece of music for his enjoyment. It will be here in a few days and in the meantime Fred is» giving the music himself. S. C. Spear and wife expect to leave this week for Maine where they will make their home indefinitely. Mr. Spear has a position with the Des Moines Loan and Trust Company and will look after its interests in Maine and several other eastern States. Mr. Spear has tried the east once or twice before and couldn't stand it; we look to see him return again to Algona within a year. J. W. Tennant is building a nice addition to his hotel. The Tennant House has been improved several times since it came into the hands of Mr. Tennant, but this present improvement is probably the most expensive one. The addition adds eight nice rooms besides a large sample room fourteen by twenty- seven feet. Mr. Tennant is now in better shape than ever to entertain his patrons. A few days agoR. J. Hunt was carrying a large chunk of coal up stairs and while he was struggling up the steps with it he remarked to a man who was with him that if it should fall on his toes it would mash them. When he got to the top of the stairs he thought he would prove his statement, so he threw down the chunk of coal with all his force. It landed on his big toe and sure enough it mashed it. R. J. claims that he did not intend to maph the toe, but rather the chunk of coal. Doc. Leatherman's team took a lively trip around town on Friday afternoon. It started from the express office while the express was being removed from the carriage. The team made real good time notwithstanding the bad condition of the roads. It ran from the express ofllce to the Northwestern depot and there some men succeeded in stopping it. There was no damage done to the team or carriage except the natural wear and tear of the trip. It is said that the two maddest men in town over the closing of the barber NEW OPERA HOUSE. Algona is to have an opera house The young business men of Algona have organized themselves into an in corporated company for the purpose of furnishing first-class amusement in suitable building. At a meeting held last night the following directors were elected: B.W. Haggard, T. F. Cooke F. W. Dingley. 8. S. Sessions, Leo Peugnet, E. E. Sayers, Chas. C. St Glair. The board is in consultation 'with A. A. Call with the object of securing quarters in the fine building to be erected this season on Thorington street. It is expected to have a ground- floor opera house, fitted up in city style with folding opera chairs, etc. The boys expect to put about $1,000 in stage scenery and furnishings. A committee has been appointed to canvass the older business men, and to see what they are willing to do. It is a project which, if carried through, will cause the erection of the finest opera house in this section of the State, and will be a, credit to the town. Algona has long needed something of this kind, and now that we are in a fair way of getting what is so manifestly needed, all property owners in Algona should give substantial encouragement to the project. .«! shops on Sunday are Bob Warren and Jack St. John. It seams to the REPUBLICAN that Bob should have some regard for the standing of his paper in the opinion of the better class of people if he has none for the Christian Sabbath, and the laws of Iowa respecting Sabbath observance and the publication of immoral advertisments. The closing up of a barber shop on Sunday is a very small matter but it is sufficient to show the lay of public sentiment and mark out the dividing line between the better element and the rowdyism of a community. The high school contest was held in the Congregational church last Friday evening. The speakers were greeted by a full house of earnest listeners. The contestants all did themselves credit. Miss Bertha Hancock was chosen by a uiianmous vote of the judges to represent the Algona school at the state contest which will be held atCreston in the near future. Miss Maggie Haggard got second prize and Miss Nellie Hinchon third. A good musical program was given by Miss Fahnestock'spupilsandothers. Every one"went home well pleased and feeling that Algona School would be well represented at the state contest. The audience seemed to be perfectly satisfied with the decision of the judges. Remarkable talent was shown by several of the contestants. The receipts from the sale of tickets were $57.95. A man by the name of Dale, from the vicinity of AVest Bend, was in town Saturday and started out to paint the town, after filling up with strong water. He started vvithllackmau's billiard and lunch room, north of the Tennant Housa 1 , and never got any farther. He found out that Algoiia wasn't West Bend. Marshal Daily appeared on the scene, and told Dale to come with him. But Dale thought that he didn't care about going with Daily. The marshal was obliged to use considerable force before he could convince him that it was the proper thing to do, but Daily finally convinced him satisfactorily, not until some, blood was shed, however. Jje was immediately taken before Esquire Taylor, and paid $10 for fete flip, to he a "bad m^a" The Weather-Crop Bulletin says that compared with the average of the past fifteen years the season is about a week late; but the general conditions are more favorable than at the corresponding date last year.' The first half of the week was warmer than the average for the season, but freezing temperature prevailed the last three days. No .especial damage, however,,is likely to result. There was a general excess of rainfall through out the state' which has delayed seeding, but the soil is well saturated at a greater depth than at any time within the past five years, and grass has made a fine start. The acreage of winter wheat in this State, though increasing in recent years, is still relatively small. The reports indicate that in about two thirds of the counties wherein it is grown its condition is fair, and in the other sections it is not promising. Winter rye is generally in good condition. All kinds of live stock have come through the winter in excellent condition: there is an abundance of feed remaining in store, with the prospect of early pasturage. On the whole the outlook for the farmer is quite favorable. If you want a p.arpet can do for you. see what Taylor On sale at Taylors—25c hats for ladies and children. When? Now. Who? J. A.
