THE REPUBLICAN, ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 13, Burt Republican. A.. C. CAT)Y» Editor, BURT, IOWA, APRIL 18, 1892. It comes to our minds just now that •we are expected to write up some items for the Burt REI-URUCAN. We do not like to write very well but try to contribute our shore for the public interest, and will try to furnish a few items. Erahm Watkins is building an addition to bis house. Charles Shaeffer is learning photography with C. B. Long. The creamery is running again and is as good as new. Miss Minnie Shadle is teaching the Andrew's school. A. C. Cady will take carpenter work by contract or by the day. W. Colver now occupies the rooms recently vacated by H. B. Hallock. Our butcher rides in a new two-seated buggy, purchased of Graham & Elvidge. Miss Abbie Goodwin will teach the Warner school this summer, commencing May 2nd. Our creamery is shut down a few days for repairs preparatory for a big summer's work. Jno. Meigs has rented rooms over the furniture store and intends moving his family to Burt. Miss Alice Farvour commenced her school in the Jay Wheeler district Monday morning last. We noticed County Supt. Reed in town last week, also the editor of the REPUBLICAN, A. D. Clarke, Collie Chubb and other Algonians. N. Palmer went to Clemme Monday to take charge of a creamery at that place. Harry Dalzell takes his old place in the creamery here. We are pleased to note that the sick around Burt are not dangerous. There are quite a number of cases of measles in and around town. We understand the sick at the Bunker and Wooden household are improving. List of new comers located here this spring: Thos. Hawcutt, C. K. Seeper, Wm. H. Heitter, Alphie Wilson, James Quinn, Goodlo Bros., Conrad Grab, Leroy McWhorter, Albert Clifford and J. A. Noah. Mrs. H. B. Hallock was up from Algona all last week to help take care of the sick under the parental roof. She returned Monday and Mrs. H. A. Paine is here this week to assist. The sick are now improving. Mrs. J. B. Cork is better, but their lit tie daughter Mildred is down with the measles. Sickness has compelled Mr. Cork to have a relief agenito take charge of the office. Mr. Ash is ably handling the work in the office at present. Burt is really an indepeudant school (district now, with Messrs. Stow, Marble I and-Kerr directors. They have engaged Prof. Sifert to teach the spring term, and we understand will have a new school finished for the fall term. Th&many friends of Arthur Stow were pleased to welcome him home last week. He went from Burt to Grand Junction, Col., last September, in search of health, and he found it, judging from his looks. He appears to have lived well, looks healthy and is not a bit pale. We notice our townsman, Wm. Elvidge, has concluded to remain in Burt aud improve his acre east of the track. We think him wise for so doing, as the lot is a very desirable one and will merit improving. He is getting material on the ground and will commence building at once. The roads leading to our town have been down so low lately that they could not be found, but the farmers living tributary to Burt are good livers? generally, and of course come to Burt to patronize our merchants, get their 'mail, talk with friends and note the improvements, and while we have not a large city we can say we have a lively little town. Everyone visiting us notes that fact. Our pioneer merchant, Geo. E. Marble, can be found at all times, not at the old Btand, but in his splendid new store and when we called on him Saturday was 'busy waiting on his patrons. When a visitor at the store of Nicholson & Buell we found them busy and noted the improvements and changes in their enlarged and refitted store room. Mr. Goeders store was not wanting for patrons and like the other stores are improving and adding new goods. These three stores are a credit to our town. Then a peep into Wm. 'Cook's store convinced us that he could and was supplying the demands for furniture. The usual amount of business yvas being done at O'Neill & Kerr's and we are pleased to note their improvements and general prosperity. Grant Whitney is improving the interior of his store and adding to bis stock. We bad no more time to look after the prosperity and improvements this week but feel satisfied a visit to any business house or office will convince anyone that Burt is alive and thriving.

NEW LINE —OF— Wall - Paper AXTD CURTAINS -AT- W. M. COOK'S FURNITURE STORE. Wall Paper Trimmed. Geo. E. Marble Sells The town Monday. Dr. Hill visited the county seat of Hancock county last week. Mrs. Gray went to Forest City last Sat-' urday to visit a sister. Mr. and Mrs. Joe Cosgrove are the happy parents of twin daughters. C. E. Oleson and Homer Lawson visited friends in Forest City last week. Henry Price's new house Is being plastered this week. It will soon be ready for the family. Mrs. E. E. Waite is still very sick with rheumatism. She is almost helpless and suffers greatly. The M. E. Sunday school will celebrate Easter next Sunday evening with appropriate exercises. E. P. Flint has finished his time as assistant in Bender Bro's. hardware and returned to his home in Spencer. Miss Bridget Cosgrove will teach the Pelton school again this summer. The school commences next Monday. A mad dog was killed on the Kerman place north of town last week. Fortunately he was killed before he had bitten any of the cattle. Thos. Tobin has sold his house and lot to Mr. Hoffer, who has already taken po- session. Mr, Tobin has not yet determined where he will make his future home. Many seem to be greatly interested in the question—who will be the first mayor of Wesley? If we were permitted to choose the first mayor he would be a temperance man and one whose habits in all respects are above reproach. The Spring, Of all seasons in the year, is the one for making radical changes in regard to health. During the winter, the system becomes to a certain extent clogged with waste, and the blood loaded with impurities, owing to lack of exercise, close confinement in poorly ventilated shops and homes, and other causes. This is the cause of the dull, sluggish, tired feeling so general at this season, and which must be overcome, or the health may he entirely broken down. Hood's Sarsaparilla lias attained the greatest popularity all over the country as the favorite Spring Medicine. It expels the accumulation of impurities through the bowels, kidneys, lungs and skin, gives to the blood the purity and quality necessary to good health and overcomes that tired feeling.

Boyle has gone east again. The new creamery is nearly completed. The frequency of the book agents calls make us think that spring is at hand. Rev.Foulstick confirmed a large class of pupils at the Lutheran church last Sunday. Mrs. J. C. Johnson has just received a nice stock of spring and summer millnery goods. The McKengie family have taken up their abode on the prairie a little southwest of town. J. M. Farley, T. H. Me Govern and others, went to Chicago with stock the first of the week. A family from Illinois have recently moved into the little house adjoining John Spilles place. The M. E. Mite Society meets with Mrs. E. Chrischilles, Wednesday afternoon at two o'clock. Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Hanna have commenced house keeping in the rooms above the hardware store. Mrs. N. L. Cotton spent several days last week visiting at Burt. We didn't hear Norman say he enjoyed batching. Mr. and Mrs. F. M. Scott former residents of Whittemore have returned to their home at Ledyard, tfcey were down making Mr. Scott's parents a visit. Miss Clara Miller and brother were over from Algona Sunday to witness the conformation services at the Lutheran church. The Georgia magnetic girl gave one of her entertainments at the school house Monday evening. It is reported that many wonderful feats were performed. The basket supper last week was very successful both socially and financially. The ladies desire especially to thank the band for their music. Whittemore will soon have a band to be proud of. Half a dozen of our business men spent half a day hunting last week, they strag gled in at evening bearing with them one poor forlorn little duck which they must have frightened to death, as their combined appearance when on the march was very imposing. I would most respectfully suggest that all who are troubled with a heavy distressed feeling in the stomach or constipation, pain in the side or back, a continued tired feeling, billious or sick head-ache call on L. A. Sheetz and F. W. Dingley and get a bottle of Closson's Dyspepsia Panacea. It will relieve you of a great amount of suffering and build up a run down constitution to the satisfaction of all who use it. W. E. CLOSSON. If you want to make a boy work without knowing it, get him a safety bicycle. Some Foolish People Ali«w a cough to run until it gets beyond the reach of medicine. They often say, "Oh, it will wear away," but in most cases it wears them away. Could they be induced to try the successful medicine called Kemp's Balsam, which is sold on a positive guaranteed to cure, they would immediately see the excellent effect after taking the first dose.

At Boston in addition to beans and things, they now have "femiculture." There is more Catarrh in this section of the country than all other diseases put to -gether, and until the last few years was supposed to be incurable. For a great many years doctor pronounced it a local disease, and prescribed local remedies, and by constantly failing to cure with local treatment, pronounced it incurable. Science has proven catarrh to be a constitutional disease, and therefore requires constitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only constitutional cure on the market. It is taken internally in doses from 10 drops to a teaspoonful. It acts directly upon the blood and mucous surfaces cf the system. They offer one hundred dollars for any case it fails to cure. Send for circulars and testimonials. Address, F. J. CHENEY & Co., Toledo, 0. Sold by all Druggists, 75c. The man who lives only for himself is engaged in a very small business. Rev. C. V. Wroolcs says that his little girl is troubled with malaria very severely, and that since b,e gave her Sulphur Bitters, he never thinks of leaving New York for his summer resort without a few bottles, for they always cure his family, and are far superior to quinine.

Neieter is building a house in the east part of town. Arrangements are being pushed for the erection of a church edifice this summer. A Mr. Anderson was in town last week. We understand he intends to start a local newspaper here soon. &_,. Mr. Foster has been having dug on his lot on Main street, put up a store building soon. Stone arc being hauled for church wall, and contractors will do to look for the notice in this issne. H. Schoville has deen digging a cellar on his lot east of the school house, where he will move the old store building soon. Castleman & Deane have been building a shop north of the Jenk's Hotel, where they will be ready for all kinds of carpenter work. Castleman & Deaxe have contracted to build a house for C. Lewis, and will commence work as soon as the masons have laid the wall. James Wood has been building a sidewalk in front of his meat market. That is all that is needed to make the town look respectable. Friends of Mr. and Mrs. Scott Wickham gave them a pleasant call on the evening of the 9th, it being the 6th anniversary of their marriage. A good supper was served and the evening passed off pleasantly to all present. A meeting was held at the depot Friday evening 'by those interested in the organization of a band. We understand an organization was effected. This is something our town is greatly in need of, and we have the musical tr.lent to warrant success. Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Rendall desire, through the columns of this paper, to.ex- press their grateful thanks to the many friends who have so kindly sympathised and tendered much needed assistance during the severe illness in their family the past two weeks. Andrew Christenson has sold his 120 acre farm to S. P. Jensen for $17 per acre and the use of the land this season. He intends buying again, and so far as we know, is very liable to quifbatching" and go to housekeeping in the really good old fashioned way. E. J. Skinner has opened up a good departure in the line of town improvements by painting a sign for himself and also one for our harness shop. Every business represented here should have a good sign painted, as some individuals coming- in from abroad are very anxious to find the drug store and are rather backward about making inquiries. They get very little satisfaction, out of it.however, except to become satisfied to leave Iowa for some other State where public sentiment is in better sympathy with their "personal liberty" appetites. Frank Hines met with a painful accident Monday, while working on Castleman & Dean's carpenter shop. The scaffold gave way and he fell, striking a cross piece on the small of his back. Dr. Rusa was called, but did not find his injuries serious, but thought it might lay him up several days. Castleman was in the tumble but managed to keep right side up, and was soon at work again. We havn't heard him say he was scared and as his hair hasn't turned gray yet we have no fair grounds for assumption. Wanted—A girl, competent to do general housework. Apply to Mrs. F. 0.
