Dr. Will Burnard, of Independence, has been in town for a. few days. He is on the medical staff of the hospital for the Insane. Addison Fisher, a son of Geo. Fisher, who is bookkeeper for Blossom Bros., at Spencer, was in town visiting his folks over Sunday. J. R. Laird is building an addition to the top of his house in order to have more room upstairs. The roof will be raised about six feet. A large number of Algona people had planed to take advantage of the excursion to Clear Lake last Friday but were scared out by the rain. Hinchon and Ryan took a sudden departure for Fort Dodge Monday evening. The United State Marshal still continues to do a flourishing bus' iness. Jas, Taylor has moved and will now be found at his new stand one door east of Dr. Garfield's office. He is offering as big bargains in dry goods as ever. Mr. Frank Nicoulin has commenced the stone work on his residence opposite B. A. Haggards. The indi- t cations are that he will heve one of the fine residences of Algona. Hudson & Shadle are going into the piano and organ business on a large scale and advertise what they have to sell in this issue. They wil also sell the Singer Sewing machine. The Baptist ladies have engaged the famous Jubilee Singers to give their charm ing co ncett in the Congregational church June 9th. They are coming, and you cannot afford to stay away.

Kulm, who has a position with a specialty Co., that is now in Illinois, goes soon to accept a position at a summer resort in the vicinity of Washington, D. C., at a salary of $100 per month. George is about as good a contortionist as one sees any where, and will doubtless soon acquire : a great reputation in his profession. It seemi that our Burt correspondent was in error in his item of last week saying thot Mr. Stewart, of Ramsay, would run a herd of 4,000 head of cattle in northern Kossuth this season. Mr. Stewart asks us to correct the item and say that he will not under any circumstances take in to exceed 2,000 head. No one need hesitate f o put their cattle in his herd upon the grounds that he is taking in too many cattle. Our former photographer, A. L. Peterson, has bought out one of the leading galleries in Algona. Mr. Peterson's reputation as a man who thoroughly understands his business is to well known in this part of the state for us to add anything on that subject, and as a citizen he is wholesouled, wide-awake gentleman that the people of Algona can not help but appreciate. We are confident that he will do a nice business there.—Livermore Gazette. MEMOR[AL DAY. l>miK"-!ir Fcl icily. I 'list Sunday evening astvjargt. Bed- doc of HID (Salvation Army was returning from church ho was passed by one of his converts Mrs. "Bill" Kelley who was headed in the direction of the river awl seemed very much excited. lie overtook her and found out that she had suicide in her mind. It soemes that she had been quarelling with her htishund and protector who threatened to kill her, wherupon she started for the river to drown herself and save him the trouble. Beddoe promptly notified marshall Dailey who arrested the old man upon the information of the woman. He was held in custody over night and discharged next morning as his wife did not appear against him. He is now thirsting for the blood of Sergent Beddoe. Of The As Observed by the People of Alg'oiia. The services attendant upon memorial day in Algona this year were especially interesting and impressive. The memorial sermon by Rev. Flanigan at the M. E. Churdh Sunday morning was a fine effort. The text from Joshua, "and this shall be a memorial to you throughout your generation" was very appropriate. The church was not sufficient to contain the audience. The Memorial address by Rev. Dorward Monday morning was also a fine effort. The influence of American patriotism upon the world was the central theme of the discourse. The music for the occasion was furnished by Arthur and Frank Tellier, Mrs. Vesper and Mrs. Bowyer.—At 1 p. m. the column formed in the following order for the march to the cemetary. Band, Company F, Sons of Veterans, Tellier's Boy Zouaves, Woman's Relief Corps, G. A. R. and citfteus in carriages. On the march to town the G. A. R. post halted in front of Fred Dormoy's residence and saluted. Mr. Dormoy is still very sick but is improving. Twenty live graves were decorated at the cemetary. lion. J. G. Smith and S. S. Sessions attended the meeting of the State Sportsman's Association at DesMoines last week. Mr. Smith was re-elected president of the association for another year. Mr. A. L. Peterson of Perry who bought out Hudson & Shadle a short time ago, took possesion of the business yesterday. Mr. Peterson has been in business in Des Moines and Perry and is in all respects a first class artist. He will be prepared to do everything in the artist's line from making a postage stamp photograph up to enlarging a picture in I«dia ink. Give the new photographer a trial. Our hypercritical contemporary, the Courier says that the REPUBLICAN is a "great blunderer" that Ben Haggard was not in Kentucky at all as reported in the REPUBLICAN last week, but down near Fort Dodge visiting relatives. The REPUBLICAN took Ben's word for it. If the Courier can refer us to any better authority we will be glad to know who that authority is. It is never safe for a newspaper to point out blunders on the part of a contemporary, neither is it good taste. The contemporary might retaliate. The Courier would do well to defer its criticisms until the people have forgotten the bad break it recently made in mixing up the Getts families of Elmore. The REPUBLICAN may be a "great blunderer" but we have never yet been forced to write a letter of apology for one of our fool blunders as the Courier was forced to do in the Getts case. Aii Estimate Of The Courier. Following is an estimate of the Courier by one of its subscribers; we quote from a letter received by the RBPUBLI- CAN yesterday,suppressingthe name of the writer as we did not have permission to make his opinion puY)lic: "I have subscribed for the "Algona Courier" which seems to be a good general newspaper but I want a Kossuth County paper more for the local news than anything else. The Courier's politics are bad but its manners and treatment of sojourners are worse,see its creed against Ex. Gov. Larrabee in its issue of two or three weeks ago. I will send subscription to the REPUBLICAN soon." Yours truly, --- Normal School Will Open June 20th and continue Six Weeks.

Those wishing further information wiil call on or address the Princi- pa 1, FRANK M. CHAFFEE. PMOS 6 ORGANS, Sunday evening, two cows in the pasture north of the river near the mill dam, attempted to get out of the pasture by wading around the fence where it runs down into the river, just above the dam. In some way they lost their reckoning and were swept over the dam, disappearing from view for the distance of about eight rods, when they "showed up," and made for the bank, and clambered out as though that was their ordinary mode of departure from the pasture. FOR OUIl BURT READERS. (Received too late fov Burt Department) A meeting of the Burt Library Association will be Held June 6th at the Burt Bank at 2 o'clock p. m. By order of committee. The Britt Tribune's Latest Lie. "A Corwith man fenced his garden with wire and ^pickets this spring. When the water came up last week the gate was open and the fish ran in by the thousand. He heard a mysterious splashing in the cellar, on examination found it was the pickeral and suckers that had run in at the hatchway. He just closed the garden gate and now has a half an acre of fine fish and has started a "fish boat," which runs in connection with the regular delivery boat. More than half the people of Corwith have eaten so many fish lately that the bones stick through their backs so they ean't get their shirts off—we speak of the masculine portion of the population—and it's nothing uncommon to see a Corwith man carrying a big club to beep the minks away from him. The mink is very fond of fish." Dollar Sociable. At the Baptist church the young people will serve ice cream and cake and favor the public with an experience sociable on Friday evening of this week. Some of the experiences will be told in song, some in poetry and some in story. Everybody is invited. Money or no money, come and enjoy the sociable. Weather-Crop Bulletin Report. The daily average temperature of the past seven days was about 6 degrees below normal: but the rainfall was very light, and there has been more than the usual amount of sunshine. This has given the farmers their first full week of line weather for field work, and it has been faithfully improved. The inspiring click of the corn-planter has been heard from daylight till dusk, making a fitting prelude to the harvest home and thanksgiving chorus which has never failed to be heard in Iowa every year since the prairie turf was first broken by the plowshare of civilized man. Corn-planting is fully half completed throughout the State at largo, but it is probable that the total acreage will this year fall considerably below the average, even with the most favorable conditions in the future. Oats and wheat are doing well on upland fields, but on the flooded bottoms and undrained fields the yield will be very light. Fruit has been slightly injured by cold winds and frost, but the prospect is generally good. Meadows and pastures were never better- at this time of the year. The years work of the Northern Iowa Normal School closed last Thursday evening. Friday the faculty and students picniced near the "Fresh Water Pond." The summer school Avill commence June 20th.,and continue through a six weeks session. There is prospect for a very good attendance. Teachers who wish to make preparation for the fall examinations will do well to attend this summer session as the work has been arranged especially for their needs. Prof. Chaffee will remain in Algona throughout the entire summer and look to the work of advertising the school. Miss Adams will not be connected with the school next year which is a matter of considerable regret to the large number of friends she has made in Algona. She will spend the summer visiting in central Iowa. Miss Waters will remain about two weeks to finish work with one of her classes in shorthand. She will spend the summer at her home in Columbia Mo., and will return at the opening of the fall term. Prof. Carlton will remain in Algona all summer and have charge of putting in the offices and making preparations for the actual business department to be conducted next year. About $1,000 will be expended in office fixtures and the necessary books for an "actual business" school. Next year the Northern Iowa Normal School will offer as good advantages to the student who wants a thorough business education as any business college in the country.
