THE HIvPUBLJCAN, ALGONA, IOWA, WKDNKSDAY, MAY 18, 18U2. Burt Republican BURT. IOWA, MAY 18. 1892. Elmer Hodgson's little child is quite eick. There is talk of another harness shop in Burt. Rev. Forsythe is is quite low with sciatic rheumatism. Mrs. H. McDonald was doing business in Algona Monday. Geo. Simpkins, of Algona, loaded two cars of fat cattle here Tuesday to ship to Chicago. The co-operative creamery shut down last week and will take no more milk until the roads get better. Mr. Richards ts tiliue the slough near his barn. This is a good thing for Burt, as it drains nearly the whole town. Mr. Groh, our rustling butcher, Is learning to smoke, and he says that the cigars smoke better with the little end cutoff. Eugene McDonald visited at home over Sunday. He was accompanied py Mr. Haskins, of Des Moines, a former classmate. Burt Good Templars are trying to get a special train put on for Friday evening, as a good many wish to attend the Gold Medal contest at Algona. Joe Elvidge reports the hog business in a flourishing condition. He bought 130 last Friday and he and Mr. McClellen took in over one hundred Monday. The school has increased in numbers until it is difficult to seat all, Mr. Sifert has been asking for more seats. The enrolment is larger than eyer before. Mr. Mayhew is building an addition to his hotel. He finds his new commodius house too small to accommodate his customers. A sidewalk is being laid from Mr. Buell's residence east. When this walk is completed with the one on Mr. Marble's side of the street the town will be well sidewalked. The I. 0. G. T. lodge at their last meeting elected Miss Agnes Stow and Mise Wolcottfor literary captains, and the following were installed in vacancies. Joe Elvidge, F. S., J. N. Easterly, Chap. Messrs. Wightman & Richards now occupy their new home purchased of S. J. O'Neill. We have not learned whether Mr. O'Neill intends starting in business again here or not, but we should be sorry to see him leave Burt. Rev. Chamberlain of Burt will take part in the program at the District Temperance Meeting at Algona Thursday and Friday. His subject is "Temperance in schools. He takes the place of Mrs. L. M. Horton of Algona. Grant Isenburger is erecting a building on a lot west of Stowe's blacksmith shop for the purpose of puttsngin a new meat •market. We are doubtful if Bart can support two meat markets, yet we welcome every new enterprise and wish Mr. Isenburger success. Ladies. Are you suffering from weakness? Is your complexion sallow? Do you have a cpnstant back-ache? Are constipated? Do you feel all tired out? If you have any of these feelings begin at once to use Dr. Bale's Household Tea. It will give you a clear complexion, will restore you to health and strength and will make you feel like a new person. Get it to-day at L. A. Sheetz drug store. Nearly every one needs a good spring medicine, and Hood's Sarsaparilla is un- doubtedely the best. Try it this season. It ever a man feels like "a poor worm of the dust," it is when he suffers from that tired feeling. Ayer's Sarsaparilla removes this discouraging physical condition and imparts the thrill of new life and energy to every nerve, tissue, muscle and fire of the whole body. A, A, Beane, A.

Butts and John Keller returned Thursday from Council Bluffs. They were delegates to the Democratic State Convention. Mr. F. Hume, is having a big job of ditching done on his eighty. It looks as though he was having about a mile of tile put down. This has been a bad season for stock. Young colts and calves die and some times the older animals. A. J. Sprague lost a valuable mare last week. Mr. and Mrs. G. A. Frink have returned from their wedding journey and are at present domiciled at Mr. G. W. Eddy's. It is rumored that they will try housekeeping in the near future. Some of our citieens seem to be aspiring to the honors of the turf by and by. The owners of the fast stock, which is to bring glory to their masters and to Wesley, are E. E. Waite, Chas. Corey, E. B. Bacon and F. A. Corey. Mrs, G, W. Eddy visited Algona last week and attended the World's Fair and Minneapolis Convention held at the Congregational church. She was so well pleased and gave so glowing an account of the entertainment it made us all wish we had been there to see. E. B. McCleary living northwest of Wesley died last Friday morning. He was an unmarried man and without friends in this part of the country. We understand that he was buried Saturday nnder the directions of the G. A. R. Wesley is to vote May 28th for her first mayor and other officers. We hope a wise choice will be made. Why not look about for some old citizen to honor with themayorality? It seems but fair that one of the men who have seen the place grow from a naked prairie to an incorporated town should fill the position. We should like to see M. Taylor elected if his health would permit. 8IDWELL * ELLSWORTH, Manufacturers and Dealers in Harness & Saddlery, Whips, Saddles, Bridles, Collars, Etc. .TAS. Editor. LEDYARD, IOWA, MAY 18, 1892.

IOWA, BURT, General Banking, GOING TO BUILD? If you are you ought to get Whitney's Prices on the HARDWARE. Shall We Drive Blow Poison from our Breakfast Table. A nuisance that troubled England fifty years ago is now rapidly spreading in this country, that is,putting alum in the bread we eat. This question is causing a great deal of discussion at the present moment, and it is revealed that alum is being used as a substitute for cream of tartar in baking powders. A story is told that a very large percentage of the baking powders sold on the market contain either alum or ammonia and many of them contain both these pernicious drugs. Much timely alarm is felt at the wholesale use of alum in bread, biscuit and pastry. To young children, growing girls, persons of weakly frame, alum bread eaten morning, noon and evening is the most harmful. It is the small quantities taken at every meal that do the mischief. Alum is cheap, costing but two or three cents a pound, while cream of tartar costs 30c, and the high price of cream of tartar has led cheap baking powder to be made of alum. If the reader wants to know something of the corrosive qualities of alum let him touch a piece to his tongue then reflect how it acts on the tender, delicate coats of the stomach. The Scientific American published iu a recent number a list of alum and ammonia baking powders, which is of great value atthis ime. Following is a condensed list compiled from official reports. Powders marked with a .star seem to havu a general sale, as they are mentioned in at least two of the official reports: * : ATLAN r nC& PACIFIC. *ROYAL. CROWN. SILVER STAR. *DAVIS 0. K. ^SNOWDRIFT. GEM. STAR. *KENTON. STANDARD. There are, ia addition to the foregoing list from the Scientific American, a number of such powders sold in the eastern stores Following is a list of the most prominent: ANUKEWS' PEAKL. - Contains Ammonia.

Is a responsible syndicate which sells direct to the consumer. By investing in manufacturers' samples,odds and ends, job-lots, and the stocks of insolvent manufacturers, in connection wich our regular commission holdings, we are able to sell to the consumer direct at the commission price, which is but one remove from the manufacturer's.
