Nothing further has been heard of the Whittemore'paper. It is just as well. There are so many papers foraging around in Kossuth County now that the pasture is getting a little short. A meeting of the opera house association was held last night to further plans and attend to a few matters of business. A meeting will be held the first Tuesday in May for the election of ofticers. Nineteen head of cattle out of one herd near Webster City perished in the blizzard a week ago last Wednesday.

Tbe REPUBLICAN has been requested to "give the city fathers a dig" about the numerous dogs to be found running around loose in the streets. Tbe city fathers will do well to keep their dogs at home, or give the marshal authority to start a sausage factory. Mt. Vernon Hawkeye: Milt Hollabaugh has been offered a lucrative position to go to the Sandwich Islands to take a position in an English school where the art of printing is'taught.

The monthly review of the Iowa Weather and Crop Service just issued, reports that the temperature for the month of March averaged ten degrees below normal. The month was characterized by more than the average amount Of cloudiness and foggy weather and there were three days of excessively high winds. Traer Star Clipper: West Wilson, of Kossuth county, is in town to pay his father and other relatives and friends a short visit. Ho says seeding is far from finished in northern Iowa. He thinks the proposed railroad from Estherville to Forest City will be built this summer. The distance is seventy miles. Capt. L. E. Baker, of Toledo, formerly captain of Company II, 1st Regiment, is announced as a candidate for major of the 4th Regiment under the new organization. lie is a thorough military man and stands high in I. N. G. circles. Under the new organization company F, of: this place, will belong to the 4th Regiment. City Engineer Daily reports that the materials for the water-mains are on the road fromAnniston, Alabama, and will probably be here nert week. Work will be commenced laying the mains immediately on their arrival. The city intends doing their own work, and Mr. Dailey will have charge of the work. About twenty Odd Fello\vs, some of them accompanied by their wives went to Estherville yesterday morning to attend the district celebration. The Milwaukee road attached a coach to one of their freight trains for the accoma- tion of the excursionists. There was some misunderstanding about the time the train was to leave Algona and quite a number missed the train. An unknown man boarded an Illinois Central train at Cherokee last Saturday and took a seat in the smoker. Shortly after the conductor passed through the car he was startled by the report of a revolver fired several times in quick succession. The. man had committed suicide by firing four shots into his breast within a circumference of four inches. R. A. Hinton decided to leave, the country last winter, and stopped the REPUBLICAN, later on he decided to remain in Kossuth and last Monday he re-subscribed for his paper. We are glad for more reasons than one that he decided to remain in the county. It wont pay to leave the county now that it is settling up so rapidly and land is becoming valuable. Mr. Hinton has been a resident of Kossuth, county for 22 years. .Company F. meets Saturday evening to .ballot for the election of regimental officers. Under the new organization the company will belong to the 4th regiment, but will still be known as F Company. The ticket that seems to stand the best show of election is as follows: For Colonel, Col. Foster of Sioux City, State Inspector of Small Arms Practice; for Lieut. Colonel, Maj. Rule, of Mason City; for Majors, Maj. Prime and Captains Scott and Humphrey. ; .An absent minded;Waterloo clergyman recently appeared in the pulpit minus collar and necktie. He discovered his collarless condition while reaping the first hymn, and the expression on his face was a study. He made a hasty visit to the church paiior and dispatched, a boy for the missing articles. To add to the good man's embarrassment the boy returned with a collar that had seen several days hard service and was consequently not in the spotless condition in keeping with the pulpit. A matched shoot took place yesterday afternoon at Bancroft between Daily and Sessions, of the Algona club, and Sundstrom and Steinberg, of Bancroft. The shoot, which was for 21 live birds and $60 a side, resulted in the following score: Daily, 19; Sundstrom, 13; Sessipns, 17; Steinberg, 8. The boys won their SJitt all right, besides shooting one of the best 21 bird records made in this part of the county in a long season. Miss Sopje Olesbn, of Bock Rapids, was. awarded first prize jn the dramatic class at the state high school contest last Friday night. "Wild Zingarella" was her selection. Harriet Case, of Waverly, was awarded the second prize in the same class. In the humorous class, Berton Adams, of Waterloo, won first a.warfi in tbe rendition of "Sandy McDonald's Signal." Mary Delaplane, of Tipton, won the second prize on select reading. There were fifteen contestants in Miss Hancock's class. Add to this the fact that a contest of that kind is a lottery anyway, and Miss Hancock has no reason to feel discouraged over her failure to secure a medal. J? VQU wafltft^wp^t'^" The Trotting- Meets'. The Trotting circuit this year covers some new territory and will be known as the Dos iMoines and Boone Valley trotting association. Rojfe, Emmetts- b'urg, Algona, Eagle Grove, Webster City and Kl flora are embraced in the circuit. Following is the program of the Algona races which will be held July 19th 20th, and 21st: MUST DAV. 3 ;00 'L ;3l '''rot— Mllornn and repeat— $156,00. _ SKCOtfD DAY.

Davies was elected president of the association at a meeting held in Algona last week, and F. M. Taylor Secretary. At a meeting of the Algona Driving Park Association held in this city last week,D. A. Haggard Was elected President and Treasurer and F. M. Taylor Secretary. — v •< 0H — A curious circumstance came under the observation of Dr. Pride and Geo. Shelley one day last week. Dr. Pride is the owner of a small pup and Mr. Shelley has a shaggy half grown Irish setter. The other day the 'little fellow saw the big dog coming and fainted dead away frcm sheer fright, just as natural as a woman. Cold water was dashed in the pup's face and the usual restoratives applied. In a few moment! he began to gasp and recovered consciousness but catching sight of the big dog again was seized with another attack of palpitation of the heart and fainted dead away the second time, time. It is the first time we ever heard of a dog fainting in the approved fashion. The following from the Creston Daily Gazette in mention of Miss Hancock's part in the contest is highly flattering, and without doubt expresses the real sentiments of a majority of the audience who were present at the con test: "Miss Bertha Hancock, of Algo na, followed with '-Jamie," and the selection was one of \the most conscientiously rendered and closely stud led conceptions of the evening. Ilov this young huly could have been over looked in making awards is one of th profound mysteries of such occasions Her rendition was true to life,;strong self-possessed and -showed remarkabl dramatic skill. It was not the leas overdone, but faithful to the characte outlined and Miss Hancock can rest as stored that her effort, in the minds o the audience, if not in the minds of th judges was none. 1 The Whittemore Advocate put in it appearance yesterday morning. It a siz-column folio with the outside printed at Mason City. The paper doe very well for.a starter, and the editoi Mr. Chas. F.Floyd, will probably mak a living and have meat on the tabl twice a week—which is better than th average country editor'can do—for h> starts out with considerable' advertis ing, and will probably get more. Th Advocate professes not to have, an politics, bub judging from, somethin said about reciprocity in the salutator article, it will have a strong leanin in the direction of the republican pai ty. which is the proper way to lean jus at present. Newspapers. are gettin pretty thick in.Kossuth county picking is getting a little short, but th Advocate is welcome to all it can get and the REIVUBLICAH will be the last t try and run it out of the pasture. :—-» <•> < -.

On sale at Taylors—35c hats for and children. ladie .Some of our farmers are getting dis- ouraged on account of the weather, here is no occasion fot disc'om'age- nent; the season is backward from laino to California, - and from the ikes to the gulf. If crops are scant in ne section by reason of the late season hey will be scant in another, and i-ices will be good to compensate the armer for the drawbacks of a late sea- on. In reality the farmer is about the ast affected of anyone by a bad sea- on. The prices paid for the products f the farm are regulated by the law of upply and demand. Light crops'-inure heavy prices, and heavy crops ight prices. It is always the business man and the people in the towns and ities who keep the closest watch upon he barometer and have apparently the deepest interest in the crops and the veather. Business is regulated by the veather for the weather regulates the rops on the farm and the farm regu- ates business. If the farmer gets good prices in a bad season, and low prices vhen crops are bountiful, he is about vs well off one time as another. It is he man who has to pay the prices that s the most seriously aliected. If crops ire scant all over the country, prices ire sure to be good: it is only when crops are scarce in his own locality and bountiful elsewhere that the farmer is seriously affected. For the past three or four years the farmers of Northern Iowa have been especially fortunate; while other portions of the State were burned up with drought and crops were scarce, the yield of everything in Northern Iowa was bountiful am prices were nniformely good. It is t little early in the season to get discouraged. Invitations -are out for the marriage of Mr. Max Ilerbst, • and Miss Delh Tennant, at the Tennant House, Sat urday evening. It is a fitting union Botli of the young people are populai in social circles, and their many friends wish them the best of everything and a happy life. Max has been in bnsinesi in Algona for the past ten years, par of which time he has been the junio member of the firm of Chrischilles & Herbst. He has made, friends witl everyone in business, as well as in : social way. Miss : - Tennant is th daughter of the genial landlord of th Tennant House, and is a young lad; of great popularity in social circles The REJP.UBLICAX tenders its heart congratulations. The young peopl have engaged a house west of the L. Lund residence, in West Algona and will commence housekeeping im mediately. Ask Druggtat for f ree bottle Dr. Miles' Nervine. Company P.

P. JONES, First Seargt. --t»n . In answer to the REPUBLICAN'S inquiry as to what particular brand of vhisky was most beneficial.for use in soughs and colds 13ro. Ilinchon has ent us a catalog of the Western Dis- illingCo..of St. Louis, with the two t'ollowing brand marked with a check mark in lead pencil: Wise's Irish"Whis- cey $4.75 per gallon. We take it that Ilinchon knows what he .is talking ibout for if any one can tell a good ar- iicle of lire water as far as he can smell it, it is the editor of a democratic newspaper. We would now like to inquire of brother Ilinchon how big a dose of the stuff is required to cure a cold and how often it is safe for the man to take ;old who uses that kind of remedies. This is the si/ing np Emmetsburg- gets at the bunds of our new born contemporary the Whittemore Advocate: "Emmetsburg, the recognized "bum town" of Palo Alto county, the harbinger of saloon-slush, a city that has for years been given over to the saloon keepers, a city which turns its back to the law and deliberately and coolly permits their saloons to run wide open in defiance of the law. then turn around and say that Whittemore is infested with bootleggers. Come off the roost, neighbor, and clean your own door yard before you cast any reflections toward Whittemore." We judge that it is decidedly unsafe to monkey with the Whittemore band wagon, now that brother Floyd of the Advocate is around. That is right, an editor should stand up for his town ' Patterson Bros., arc head quarters for No. 1 lard, bologna sausage, sugar cured hams and breakfast bacon,they will make prices lower than the lowest.
