Beal Estate Agent Cork, of Burt, and Lawyer Barslou, of Bancroft, were callers at the REPUBLICAN office yesterday afternoon. Jas. Taylor left for Chicago Saturday night.

The Algona Juvenile Temple, now numbering seventy members in good standing, has just received a handsome prize banner from the State organization of Good Templars.

Saturday afternoon there were rumors of war on State street, caused by the too free use of snowballs. A treaty of peace was made after some loud talk. Nobody was injured in the skirmish. An opera hall has long been a necessity in Algona and the people are now congratulating themselves that after many days we are about to have an opera house that will be a credit to the town.

Miss Bertha Hancock, goes today to Creston, Iowa, to take part in the state oratorical contest. She will compete with the best speakers from all the high schools in the state, and we venture to predict that she will be well up in the markings of the judges. Prof. Dixon, Miss Maggie Haggard and Lulu Clarke will accompany her. Seymour Allen and Miss Jennie Bowman are at last happily married.. We cannot give the exact date when the ceremony was performed, but it was within the last week. The editor of the REPUBLICAN narrowly escaped a thumping for somewhat prematurely announcing this marriage several months ago. We now extend our special congratulations. With this issue we commence the publication of our new serial story, "Allen Quarermains wife" by H. Rider Haggard, one of the latest and best stories from the pen of that famous author. Everyone should read the story: It is written in Haggard's characteristic style and is full of interest to the end. .# While in Chicago last week Editor Hays had the pleasure of meeting our former townsman. D. D. Townsend, who is now engaged in Y. M. C. A. work with the Madison street department of the Chicago Association. He is enthusiastic in the Y. M. C. A. work and will remain with the Chicago Association indefinitely. Iowa was visited by a heavy snow storm last Wednesday. In some localities the fall is reported to have been from 16 to 18 inches. There was a fall of about 8 inches at Algona, Trains from the south were blockaded for about twelve hours. The snow remained but a day of two and will not have the effect 9! greatly retarding spring work. Arrangements are being perfected for the union temperance meeting announced in the REPUBLICAN last week to be held in the near future. The meeting will continue through two days May 19 and 20, and several prominent temperance workers are expected to be present. The program will be published as soon as completed. A gold medal Demorest Contest will be held during the meeting The marshallsays there was some little trouble in tbe north part of town Friday, and it" took the soothing influence of his presence to allay the excitement.

Besides supporting a family of six children and clothing them well she has been able in the past two oy three yearn to iness men of the town has been partially organized and an agreement entered into with Mr. Ambrose Call, who will erect the building on Thorington street just north of the First National bank, giving the company the use and management of the hall during a period of five years, for a rental consideration of $450 per year. The company is to have a capital stock of $2,600, one fifth part of the stock being payable annually. A meeting of the company is to be held next Friday evening when the organization will be completed and officers elected. As a part of the agreement with Mr. Call the company are to donate $1,000 to go towardthe expense,of stage scenery and furnishings. The boys have circulated a subscription paper among the business men of the town who are anxious for an opera hall, and have practically succeeded in raising the necessary amount. The opera building is to be a brick structure 48x124 feet and 24 feet high. The auditorium will be upon the ground floor, and is to be a commodius room 48x90 feet, with galleries par- quette, dress circle, etc. The hall will be seated with opera chairs and provided with everything in the way of furnishings necessary to a first-class hall. * The building is to be erected some time this summer. Mr. Lund's office building will be moved to the vacant lot belonging to Mr. Galbraith next to the building recently put up for the temporary accommodation of Mr. Carter's grocery store. Hay & Bice will move their building to some other spot not yet determined upon. There will be space for several office rooms in the front part of the opera building, and Mr. Lund will occupy one of them as soon as the building is completed. From the Weather Crop Bulletin. For week ending April 15th, 1892: The past week was unseasonably cold and stormy. The average daily temperature was over nine degress below the normal, and there was but little sunshine. The storm which began Tuesday evening, developed on Wednesday into a regular March blizzard of considerable severity, with rain, sleet, hail and snow, accompanied at times by lightning and thunder. In the northern half of the State the snow Avas quite heavy, and the drifts impeded railway travel. It was an unusual storm for the season, though not wholly unprecedented. The amount Don't Read This Unless you want to Save Money in buying HARDWARE! of precipitation varied from one-half an inch to over two inches. The temperature fell at the close of the storm a little below the freezing point. The principal damage resulting was in delaying the necessary work of an already belated season, and in the loss of young stock not properly sheltered. Fruit is not sufficiently advanced to be injured. Compared with the average of recent years the season is now fully two weeks late, or about as it was at the corresponding date last year. Spring wheat is mainly planted, and the sowing of other small grain is, on an average, about half done. The worst of the present outlook is that the weather is not yet settled, and the temperature is still unseasonably low. The soil is abundantly moistened, and only warmth and sunshine are needed to quicken vegetation and make the farmers happy. The probability is that the untoward conditions will considerably reduce the acreage of all kinds of small grain. It is likely to be a very favorable season for grass. »•-«••-« To Keep the Ball Boiling We offer any suit or overcoat in the house $14.50 worth $22.50. Men's suits from $3 upwards.
