Jessie Cole of Hull, presiding Elder of Sheldon district is a candidate at the hands of his post for department Chaplin of the G. A. R.

He is just recovering from a severe spell of sickness induced by an attack of La Grippe and finds his health so badly shattered that he will be forced to give up his work in the ministry for a season.

All who expect to attend the temperance mass meeting May 19th and 20th are requested to notify Mrs. T. H. Conner not later than May 18th—through an error the programs were made to say April 18th—in order that arrangements may be made for entertainment, and places assigned.

Frank Tubbs of Union township who is working at the carpenter's trade in Algona went home last Saturday afternoon to spend Sunday, and brings back a report of the hail storm Saturday evening. He picked up one hail stone that measured eight inches in circumference. The storm was of short duration and there was very little wind: Otherwise considerable damage might have been done. An eight inch bail stone makes a pretty good sized pebble. Oilman Ross who came to Algona last fall from some place in Wisconsin and left town last Saturday night for parts unknown is sadly missed by a number of Algona people, merchants and others. No one is pining for his society exactly but if he would come back and settle some of his little bills folks would be glad to see him. Should this paper reach him in his wanderings he will please come back to his sorrowing friends. The young man boarded at Mrs. Boals' and is in arrears for his board. Before leaving he visited several stores in town and laid in a supply of clothing most of which he secured on credit. It is also said that he victimized one pf our jewelers for a gold watch by the payment of a small sum and the promise to pay the rest later. It is reported from the Milwaukee depot that he bought a ticket for Mason City Saturday evening and it is supposed that he went away on the freight that goes east about midnight. Patterson Bros., are head quarters for No. I lard, bologna sausage, sugar cured hams and breakfast bacon, they will make prices lower than the lowest. The latest "dishei, 4 seta, bin tee — ——-—• —=—- -——- At the request of a subscriber we give space below to the prognostications of weather doctor Hicks for the mouth of May. If Mr. Hicks knows what he is talking about the month of May is going to be a little hard on the farmer. Preserve this paper and see how closely Mr. Hicks' predictions are verified. Cool, clear weather will advance from west to eastern parts of our continent during the first days of May. By the 3rd a warm wave will appear in the west, attended by a low barometer and storm developments of marked intensity. Within 48 hours of 6 p. m., on the 4th—the center of the period—storms of marked cyclonic possibilities, attended by hail, rain and thunder, will visit most parts of the country. As far as maybe practicable, preparations against heavy hailstorms should be at this, as well as all the storm periods of the month. Be prepared for phenomenal areas of cold and hot in close proximity to each other, with sudden and extreme drops of temperature. Frosts are almost sure to follow in the rear of storms about the night of the 4th or 5th, in the north and west, reaching the eastern sections a day or two later. Watch and see. Centering on the 10th and llth, reactionary conditions of temperature and barometric pressure, ending in storms, may be counted on. Keep a cautious eye on all storm clouds about these dates, and do not be unprepared for frost, in many northern and central sections on the nights immediately following the storms. The next storm period is central on the ICth, bringing its culminating stages, especially in eastern parts of the country, exactly on the 18th—the central day of a Venus disturbance. Bemember that Venus brings rapid and extreme alternations of heat and cold, cloudbursts, hailstorms and startling manifestations of lightning and thunder. Be on the watch for such results at this time. The period runs from the 14th to 19th. A series of heavy storms, recurring in cycles of 24 hours—say each afternoon and evening—will most likely result for several days about this time. The wind falling obstinately back to the south after the passage of storm paroxysms, will be good evidence that the storm will repeat itself about, or a little in advance of the same hour on the succeeding day. A cold, steady wind from west and north will indicate the cessation of storms. Heavy frosts will be heard from to the northward between the 15th and 21st. On and about the 22d, look for a return of very warm days, with reactionary storms greatly intensified by the Venus equinox. Keep your eye on t*be indications. Cool" winds, holding strongly from the west, will be proof that the storm center has passed east of you. The last storm period for the month is from the 25th to the 30th—a period calling for constant and carefulwatch- fuInesSj in the event of hot days, south winds and the formation of active storm clouds. On the 25th falls the new moon, equinox of Mercury on the 29th, Venus still in full force—all combine with a regular "Vulcan" period, central on the 27th. Putting all these causes together and adding the fact that we are fully within the Saturnian period, we may almost surely expect disturbances of great violence. Make notes of the days indicated in the calendar as central danger days, and be prepared as best you can for whatever may come. The cold weather, with snow, frosts and freezing, predicted in our "Forward Look,'' months ago, have continued up to the date of this writing. The phenomenal rains which we expected at the end of April and in May A petition lias been circulated and largely signed by the citizens asking the council to refuse to grant a license to rnn a billiard hall to any party now holding a government license to sell liquor. The council should should not hesitate to act in accordance with the petition. If a man pays for a government license to sell liquor it maybe taken for granted that he intends to sell liquor. He may sell it under the "nom de plume" of "health restorer" and the grand jury may decide that it is not intoxicating but if he pays for the privilege of selling liquor he will probably take care to get what he pays for. We dont know what benefit a billiard hall is to the town anyway. The BEPUBLICAN job office is engaged on the Northern Iowa Normal School Catalog for 1892 and 1893. 6,000 copies of the catalog are to be printed and it is intended that they shall all be placed in the hands of young people within the territory of the Normal School during the coming summer. The catalog promises many changes in the School that are all in the line of a marked and decided improvement. With the success of the School during the past year to build upon there is every reason to believe that it will be successful during the coming academic year beyond the best expectations of its friends. The new catalog will show a total attendance of about 175 for the past year The enrollment next year should double that number. The last issue of Bearings a Chicago Bicycle paper contained a cut of Bert Edmonds with the following mention: "This plucky western Iowa rider attracted unusual attention in Des Moines last summer during the indoor tournament "promoted" by John S. Prince. Edmonds then covered 208 miles and four laps iu twelve hours, running two hours each day. He made 38 miles in two hours, and rode the last mile in 2:68, all of which was exceedingly well done, as Edmonds was a new man without any training whatever. A previous twelve-hour record of 192miles was held by Johnson at Minneapolis, to whom Edmonds subsequently succumbed. His friends are confident that there is a good deal in him. Ho is twenty-one years old and weighs 125 pounds." Baptist Supper. On Thursday, from five o'clock until all are served, the ladies of the Baptist church will be pleased to serve the public to a royal supper in the Baptist church.

"We can suit you in Styles and Prices. MEEALL * en, Don't Read This have been precipitated by the Mars and Saturn combination, resulting in great and disastrous floods. It is greatly to be hoped that rains will be lighter in May than we have indicated, but the Venus equinox in the very middle of the month discounts such hope. Perhaps the rain-tanks will have been prematurely emptied, and we shall have in its stead, phenomenal temperatures, Auroral displays, with earthquake variations. Trie loss of human life thus far in April—and on the very days named in our forecasts- has been too appalling to rehearse. What shall be the record for May? Who shall be the victims? Have any steps been taken to lessen the chances of death and danger? Answer for your loving ones who look to you for protection. St. Louis, April 12. Unless you want to Save Money in buying HARDWARE! At a meeting of the School board Monday evening the followingteachers were re-elected for next year: W. H. Dixson, Eva Whitney, Mrs. L. M. Horton, Edith Call, Cora Wise, Lillian Decker, Tillie Cramer and Jennie Pettibone. Miss Nettie Durant was elected to a position and there are still several vacancies to fill. By vote of the board, Miss Cramer's salary was raised $10 per month and Mrs. Horton's $5.00. A proposition to submit the matter of fixing up the Normal school building at the expense of the district to the electors of the district was discussed and left over, pending a conference with the Normal School board. Last week just as we were getting the forms ready for the press we were apprised of the fact that a new manufacturing enterprise is to be located in Algona.

The plant will be located on grounds near the C. & N. W. depot, and is to cost in the neighborhood of $4,000. The gentlemen asked the very modest bonus of $260 from the town for the location of the plant, and Mr. A. A. Call took hold of the matter and had no difficulty in raising the money.
