LOCAL NEWS AND NOTES. Lewis E. Smith, the liveryman, has bought the lot just north of his stable on the corner, and has torn down the old house that stood upon it. lie will put up a new house immediately. More KKPUHMUANS go to the Burt and Ledyard postofllces than all other county papers combined. This is not fiction, but a fact that can be easily verified. The HEPUHLICAN'S libel suit next week, provided the prosecution can be forced to come to atrial. The REPUH- LICAN will continue to be published the the same as usual aft9r the trial if it has to be edited from behind the bars. Chas. Everett, who has been in the law oflice of II. S. Vaughn, at Denver, was in Algona last week. Charley says that Mr. Vaughn is interesting himself considerably in mining operations in the Crede country. The Democrat reports that the number of Emmetsburg people taking the Keeley cure is rapidly increasing. If reports are correct, Emmetsburg could support a very flourishing institute and not go away from home for patients. Letters remaining uncalled for in the Algona postoffiee for week ending May 7: Miss Minnie Eettke, J. W. Schneider, Isaac Cox, Emma Anderson, Geo. W. Hayes, Mr. J. A. Gibson, Alfred Johnson, N. M.

W. Wheeler was up from Des Moines over Sunday. Dr. Pride has moved into the Benham house on Thorington street. Emmetsburg is seriously agitating the subject of electric lights. • Mrs. Vic Stough and children are expected down from Minneapolis this evening. Attorney Quarton returned yesterday morning from a trip into Missouri on legal business. W. L. Joslyn returned Monday morning from Chicago and makes quite a report of the work at Jackson Park. Quarterly meeting services were held at the M. E. Church last Sunday evening conducted by Rev. Black. Pearl Pugh's brother who has been visiting him for the last two weeks returned to his home in Nebraska last Monday. John Holloway formerly of the firm of Wallace & Holloway, now traveling for a Chicago house, was in town over Sunday. Worlds Columbian Exposition and National Republican Convention at the Congregational church tomorrow evening. Geo. Kuhn left Monday night for Princeville, 111., where he is to join a circus and figure in the ring as a contortionist. Dr. Sheetz, J. W. Eobinson, Dr. McCoy and one or two others are away at Ottumwa attending the G. A. R. encampment. Bert Hallock of the REPUBLICAN force is laid up with rheumatism and his place is being supplied by Tommy Billsborough. The rainy weather still continues, but we can find some consolation in the fact that it is about as wet elsewhere as it is in Kossuth county. Regular meeting of the W. C. T. U. at Reading Room on Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock. A full attendance is desired by the president. The democratic delegates to the state convention left for Council Bluffs last night in a special car for which they are indebted to the efforts of Jas. Taylor. W. F. Carter has been moving during the last week and is now doing business at his new stand on the south side of state street next to Dr. Garfield's office. J. J. Ryan returned last week from a tour into the Dakotas, where he invested quite extensively in some of the cheap lands that we read so much about. Mrs. M. F. Ilinman, of Belmond, State President of the Woruans Christian Temperance Union, of Iowa, is expected to be in attendance at the convention. Arthur Waldo writes from Lakeport California. "Have been having some earthquaking but not severe here. About 50 miles below here they got it in the neck so to speak." The lecture at the Congregational church Monday evening by Mrs. De Voe was well attended considering the unpleasant condition of the weather. A committee of three ladies was appointed by Mrs. De Voe, who pledget} themselves to raise ten dollars to assist Chas. L. Stowell of Mason City at one time in business at Britt is missing. During last fall he was at Winterset but left there in October to return to Mason City. He was last seen at Iowa Falls, and is known to have had about $200 on his person. Ex. Governor Larrabee was in town Monday and favored the REPUBLICAN with a short call. He is fencing in six sections of land in the north part of Swea township near the state line to be used as a cattle range. His son Charles is superintending the work. The Britt Tribune telJs about a Kossuth county man who had his horses drowned in the furrow while breaking prairie. He then hunted up and old set of oars, put a pair of oar-locks on his breaking plow, and now rows himself around the field at the rate of three acres a day. It was intended that the mock Republican Convention at the Congregational church to-morrow evening, should be followed by a mock Democratic Convention Friday evening but the Democratic Cotryention will not be held. In view of this fact the Republican Convention will probably be continued through both even ings. The postal authorities have equipped the Northwestern with a better mail service. A force of postal clerks is to be f ut on the night train north from Des Moines to Hawarden. The service will expedite eastern and southern mails to all parts along the lines of the Northwestern and connections in northern Iowa Minnesota and the Dakotas The new service went into effect Monday morning. Jay Hodgman showed a practical appreciation of what the REPUBLICAN said about the "artistic" job of painting and striping done on his delivery wagon, by coming into the office last Friday and setting up the oranges to the editor. Jay wishes to have us say that he did that job of painting himself, and although he does not claim to be an artist by any means, he thinks it is quite a creditable job. Mamie Burroughs was adjudged insane yesterday morning and taken to the asylum at Independance by her father "Doc" Burroughs who lives at Northfield Minn. Miss Burroughs was a very bright girl and her many friends hope for a speedy recovery. For the last few weeks she has been staying with her aunt Mrs. Winkie. Sheriff Graham went after the young man Gilman Ross, who vamoused the ranch a week ago Saturday night, and had him safely back in Algona last Saturday. He found the young man over in Wisconsin. His whereabouts was discovered through a letter written to an Algona damsel. The girl's father waited until after she had retired and then cabbaged the letter. Mr. Ross probably failed to appreciate the actions of his prospective father-in-law. lie paid his debts and all costs and was allowed to depart in peace. Central Illinois in the vicinity of Peoria was visited by the most disastrous flood last week in the history of that section of the country. Our new settlers from Illinois should not become discouraged with Northern Iowa because it is a little damp here this season. It is a very exceptional season for Northern Iowa. Don't let anybody get rattled. We are having a drought here compared to what they are experiencing in some places. A United States officer from Fort Dodge appeared in town last night and tooh charge of Lew Hackman, proprietor of the billiard hall next to the Tennant House. The pair left for Ft. Dodge this morning, where Hackman will probably take out a government license to sell liquor. The REPUBLICAN had a short call last Thursday from the senior Mr. Wightman, of the firm of Wightman, Richards & Co., of Burt, successors to O'Neill & Kerr. The new firm have taken possession of the business and announce themselves with an advertisement in the Burt department of the REPUBLICAN, to which we would call attention. The REPUBLICAN wishes the new firm success at Burt, and will be glad to welcome more people like them into the county. They are pushing business men with whom the farmers of Burt and vicinity will find it safe and profitable to deal. Clerk Brunson went to Minneapolis last Friday to look up a new kind of cement designed to take the place of lath and plaster, for some California parties. California earthquakes are hard on an ordinary plaster wall. The new cement is manufactured at Minneapolis under a patent. It is put up in the form of matched sections or boards and is allowed to thoroughly dry and harden before shipping and is attached to the rafters or studding by means of screws or wire nails. It is very light and will stand a hard earth quake without cracking. At the meeting of the Social Union Club at the Congregational church last Friday evening, a paper was presented by Edgar Butler in answer to the argument made by Editor Hinchon at a previous meeting of the club, on the money question and its relation to labor. Mr. Hinchon holds the somewhat remarkable position that capital has no right to be considered productive alongside of labor. He thinks that it is robbery to take interest for. the use of money, and that one man's labor should receive the same compensation as another's—that the Paddy on the railroad should be paid as much for his services as the division superintendent. Paul B, Sands wanted for some time for robbing a ticket agent of the C. & N. W. road at Whiteside, Crawford county, last October, has at last been captured, and Sheriff Graham has the credit for making the capture. Jack located his man in Montana, and kept a close watch of his movements. He learned a short time ago that the fellow was coming to Estherville on a visit to his brother. He accordingly made a trip to Estherville last week and caught his man just as he was about to board the train. A detective officer of the C. & N. W. road metthe Sheriff at Algona in answer to his telegram, and took charge of the prisoner. Sands is a son of Doc. Sands, one of the old residents of the county, but now dead some years. The REPUBLICAN has been made the oflicial paper for Kossuth county,of the Columbus Day National Public School Celebration to be held upon the 12th of next October, the 400th anniversary of the discovery of America. Mr. Bellamy of the Youths Compaion is at the head of the movement and it is expected that tlie day will be celebrated by the public schools of the United States from from the Atlantic to the Pacific. All matter sent out by the executive committee with reference to the celebration will be published in the REPUBLICAN. Let the schools of Kossuth county prepare to observe the day. Company F passed an excellant inspection and stands second in the regiment and seventh in the state. Following is the standing of the first seven companies. Company A—4th Regt. Dubuque—"The Governors Grays"— 94;Company II—6th Regt. Sioux City— 91.5; Company C Muscatine 2nd Regt., 88.0; Company C 1st Regt., Cedar Rapids 83.5; Company E 1st Regt., Clinton 80; Company A, 3rd Regt., west Des Moines 78.5; Company F Gthllegt., Algona 78. There are 48 companies in the Iowa National Guard and it is something of an honer to stand among the first seven. The inspection was largely in company movements which placed our boys at a disadvantage as the armory hall is not large enough to permit of practice in those movements. If they might have had the use of the Court House hall all winter the boys would have stood much higher among the seven. Readers of the REPUBLICAN who have taken an interest in the case of Mrs. E. V. Higley will be interested in the following extracts from a recent letter to her sister, Mrs. Cleary. Mrs. Higley has Deen in very destitute circumstances for a long time and went about a month ago with her children to the sanitarium and , orphans' home of the Adventist church at Battle Creek, Michigan.—"We are all well and settled at last. The children have been homesick. They had to be quarantined two weeks before they put them into the home. Just before I came here another family of children came who brought the scarlet fever in their clothes, go they made a rule to quarantine all children who are brought to the home for two weeks before they can go with the other children. That made it awful hard for May; she was so homesick she could neither eat or sleep. They put her with the other children yesterday and she is contented and happy now. They put baby with a nice old lady who had another little boy a year older than he is.—One can go to church from the beginning of the Sabbath to the end of it here. You can go to Sabbath school at the tabernacle at nine o'clock, after which there is preaching at eleven at the tabernacle. You can go from there to the Sanitarium where they have Sabbath school in the gymnasium room, which takes you till the dinner hour, then go from the dining room to a prayer and social meeting in the parlors of the hospital. * * I am working for wages now but will go into the misiionary class in a few days." Mrs Higley has had a hard lot and her friends will be glad to know that she is iu n position where her circumstances will be made more comfortable. Reports from all parts of the state tell about the same story of cool weather, excessive rainfall, delayed farm work, and considerable damage by floods. Rain fell in nearly every county six days, and there was but one day of sunshine during the past week. The measurements of precipitation range from 1.50 to over 7.00 inches, and the average for the State was about 3.50 inches. The acreage of oats and other small grain is greatly reduced compared with last year. Much corn ground is yet to be plowed, and it is probable that the lateness of the season and saturated condition of soil will cause a considerable decrease in the corn acreage. Grass, winter wheat, and early sown oats are doing fairly well. Fruit prospects are very good. Compared with the rest of the state Kossuth county had but an average rainfall. Observer Renfrew of Bancroft reported 3:30 inches. The heaviest fall was reported from Pocahontas, Wright, Scott, Taylor, and Davis counties. Pocahontas county reported a fraction less than eight inches. MEMORIES. •—*- A world of fair and golden light, A soft refrain upon the breeze, A little bnnch of roses white, And all around sweet melodies, One summer day.

ADDITIONAL BANCROFT NEWS. Willie Musson is under the weather with the measles. Mrs. E. S. Streater was reported as being somewhat worse yesterday morning. Miss Allie Odell has been sick with the measles during the past week but is now improving. A. Sundstrom and A. F. Steinberg went to Mankato to attend the big shoot at that place. Several of Bancrofts teachers have been unable to get to their schools on account of the weather. The prospect of a new railroad north of us does not seem to dampen the enthusiasm nor make any one lose faith enough in Bancroft to cause them to stop the boom of new buildings. Died, Miss Matie Neeling on Saturday morning, May 7th. She was born in Kossuth county Dec. 7th, 187S, in Algona, where she lived two years with her parents and ut the end of this time moved to Bancroft with her parents. She was an earnest Christian girl and a faithful member of the M. E. church, from which place the funeral was held last Monday afternoon, Rev. A. W. Luce officiating. The parents have the sympathy of all Bancroft in their affliction. The Jew as a Farmer. Among the great masses who most toil for their daily bread, certainly many have not yet devoted themselves to tilling the soil, and on this account their enemies have devised the charge that Jews are of no use in agriculture, that they are averse to all hard work. Here also experience gives a refutation. In the lands where Jews have been permitted to acquire Landed property, where they have found opportunity to devote themselves to agriculture, they have proved themselves excellent farmers. For example, in Hungary they form a very large part of the tillers of the soil, and this fact is acknowledged to suchaa extent that the high Catholic clergy in Hungary almost exclusively have Jews as tenants on mortmain properties, and almost all large landholders give preference to the Jews on account of their industry, their rectitude and their dexterity. These are facts that cannot be hid, and that have force, so that the anti-Semitic movement, which for a long time flourished in Hungary, must expire. It will expire because every one sees that so important a factor in the productive activity of the country—especially in agriculture—cannot be spared. My own personal experience, too, has led me to recognize that the Jews have very ;ood ability in agriculture. I have seea ;his personally in the Jewish agricultural colonies of Turkey, and the reports from the expedition that I have sent to the Argentine Republic plainly show the same fact.—Baron de Hirsch in Forum.

There are more liquor cure institutions in Iowa than in any other two states and they are all well filled. AVe understand the reason to be; we have had more republican prohibition in Iowa for the past eight years than any other three states:—Ilumboldt Independent. Has Bro.'Adams ever made a census to ascertain the class of people who are takingjthe Keeley cure? A reunion of the graduates of the Des Moines Institute was held a short time ago and democratic editors seemed to predominate at the meeting. A democratic editor presided and another democratic editor made the principal speech of the oc-casion. Because a democratic editor will go off and get full it is no sure sign that prohibition is inoperative. Some of the bretheru would contrive a way to get the stuff in spite of all the prohibitory laws that could be put upon the statute books. Mclutyre. HOUSE.

It is a curious fact that musical sounds fly farthei and are heard at a greater distance than those which are more loud and noisy. If we go on the outside of <a town during a fair, at the distance of a mile we hear the musical instruments, but the din of the multitude, which is sft overpowering in the place, can scarcely be heard, the noise dying on the spot To those who are conversant with the power of musical instruments the following observation will be understood: The violins made at Cremona about the year 1600 are superior in tone to any of a later date, age seeming to dispossess them of their noisy qualities and leaving nothing but the pure tone. If a modern violin is played by the side of one ot those instruments it will appear much the louder of the two, but on receding a hundred paces, when compared with the Cremona, it will scarcely be heard.— New York Ledger. Heaven's Artillery. The largest rainfall on earth has beea recorded at Chera Punji, on the Bay of Bengal, bub the most violent thunderstorms ever observed are probably those of French Guiana. At Cape Orange, some forty miles south of Cayenne, Captain Ellert, of the French navy, saw the rills of the coast hills turned into waterfalls by a cloudburstlike storm, while the crashing of thunder peals was incessant and often almost deafening, so much so, indeed, that some of the sailors began to mutter long forgotten prayers—probably thinking the day of judgment near at hand.—New York Telegram.
