All association has been formed, by eleven of Algoua's young men, offering a reward of $100 for marriage. Upon the marriage of a member of the association, the other ten members make the happy bridegroom a present of $10 each. The association continues live years, and if at the end of that period there still remains any unmarried members, they are out the money invested, and they will have only the satisfaction of knowing that they have contributed to a good cause. The constitution and bylaws have been drawn up by eminent legal talent and has already been signed, and everything is in working order. It was intended to publish a portrait and sketch of each one of the members, but the young men are a modest lot, and seem to be afraid that .they would be be- seiged by all the marriagable ladies in f,Vv .

Flauigan left last Thursday to join his wife at Mt. Vernoon for their vacation trip in the east. He will be absent about a mouth but there will be services regularly at the church during his absence, the pulpit being supplied by some other minister. Pat. Cady goes to Waukesha Wisconsin, the first of July to join a musical organization at that popular summer resort. The band is one of the finest in the west, and Pat has taken a long stride upwards in the musical profession. Note the advertisement of the summer session of the Normal School. Write to Prof. Chaffee for particulars. If you are expecting to teach next year DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATES. Some of the Possible Candidates Mentioned for Congress. The democratic mind is agitated just at present over the matter of a candidate to put up against Mr. Dolliver. Prominent among the candidates mentioned are J. J. Wilson, the old wheel horse of the Kossuth county democracy, Ole Johnson Ryan, late of Fort Frank T5ros'. Old Stand.

Program is published elsewhere. Jas. G. Taylor Post, will meet June 8th in the evening, at 8 o'clock. Rally Boys. Miss Grade Lund gave a party to her little friends last Saturday afternoon. The board of supervisors are in session—full proceedings will be published next week. M. Starr and Forest Stough left last Friday night for Minneapolis to take in the DePew speech. Mrs. Jas. Bice of Peoria County Ills. arrived tfris morning on a visit to her sister, Mrs. G. L. Carrol. Mr. and Mrs. Coleman Chubb returned last week from California where they spent the winter. Notice Jas. Taylor's offer. Every eaderof the REPUBLICAN can have one of those premiums. Corn is about all in and we will have a good crop yet although the acreage will be lighter than usual. The fishing is said to be unusually good in the river this spring. Some fine catches have been made. Warren Danson and wife expect to start the first of next week for Spokane to be gone about a month. Seethe change in Bradley & Nic- oulins ad. They are enterprising dealers and mean to do business. There will be preaching at the M. E. church next Sunday morning, but no public service in the evening. Julius Frank, our former clothing man, came up from Waterloo Monday, and remained with us one day. Dr. McCormack, removed with his family to Wesley on Monday. The Doctor formerly lived at Wesley. E. G. Bowyer, our popular optician and jeweler will visit Burt next Wednesday and test the people's eyes. Geo. W. Adams, of Wesley, has been granted a pension of $12 per month, with about two years back pay. This hot weather is making corn. We will have a fair crop yet and the farmers will get a good price Politics is the all absorbing theme this week. News is scarce. Everything is hanging lire on the convention. Lund and Ryan have had their ollice reptfpered and repainted since it has been moved. Sid Cottrell did the job. License to marry has been issued to W. II. Arrundale and Lillie May Neeling, Paul Luchsnger and Aletha Starr. Capt. Cooke had a petition before the board yesterday asking for the use of the Court House for drill. It was granted. Mrs. Quarton and two children are visiting at Tracy and other points in Minnesota. She will be absent about a month. W. W. Bisby formerly of Algona, now special agent for the Fidelity Fire Association of Des Moines,was in town over Sunday. The card of the real estate firm of Joslyn & Pleth will be found on the first page of the REPUBLICAN this week. If you have a farm to sell you cannot do better than to list it with Joslyn & W.B.Quarton is away this week as a member of the board of examiners at the law commencement at the State University at Iowa City. Miss Cora Wise will spend her summer vacation with Miss Randall at Mt. Vernon. They will leave for Mt. Vernon next Saturday. Jubilee Singers at Congregational church, June 9th. No one can afford to miss this opportunity to hear a first class troupe. Come and help us. Miss the Tennessee Singers at the Congregational church tomorrow night and you will miss a treat. It is their first and probably last visit to Algona. Northern Iowa is fortunate in having a soil that dries out quickly and a subsoil that holds water like a sponge and helps the crops over a dry season. Galbraith Bros, have put in a stairway leading to their basement department from the street. This will make that part of their store much easier of access by the public. Banker Richmond of Bancroft was among the callers at the REPUBLICAN office last week. The new Bancroft bank is doing a big business for a new institution. The young folk's dollar sociable was a grand success. The experience part of it was excellent. The participants acquitted themselves beyond expectation. $30 was realized. The following advertisement appeared in the Minneapolis Tribune of Monday morning. "Season tickets to the Minneapolis convention for sale- price $105.00." The advertisement probably brought plenty of buyers. It is worth a trip to the Wigwam to see the mammoth stock of farm implements and machinery that it contains. Jones never had a larger stock, and he was never selling at better prices. The following is the vote for Major as given us by Capt. Cook: Capt. W. B. Humphrey, Sioux City, 319; Capt. L. E. Baker, Toledo, 166; Majority, 143. Co. F. voted 35 for Humphrey. L. M. Owen, one of Burt's enterprising farmers was a caller yesterday morning and wanted the REPUBLICAN sent to him as he couldn't get along with out it. Editor Harding of the Elmore Eye was in town last Thursday and made the REPUBLICAN a short call. He is making an extremely bright little paper out of the Eye and is meeting with good success, all of which he deserves. and wish further preparation before taking the examination, the summer session has been designed especially for you. The Clay County News issues an illustrated supplement of 44 pages, with cuts and sketches of the leading business men of Spencer. The people of Spencer may well feel proud of pos- sessiug such an enterprising sheet as the News. The adjourned meeting of the teacher's convention was held last Saturday at the public school building, but the attendance was small. Teachers who attended report that it was a profitable meeting. A series of teacher's meetings is to be held during the summer at different points in the county. Through the kindness of Geo. Call we are in receipt of a copy of a special editioii ; of the Llano Texas News; After glancing over the paper we are convinced that Llano must be quite a town and the country around Llano quite a promising country notwithstanding the fact that it is in the state of Texas. S. E. Johnson, our new auctioneer, the Courier, whose portrait adorns this column. It is not impossible thatKos- stith county may have the honor of furnishing a man to travel in the footsteps ot: farmer Woods and Captain Yeoman. Editor Ilinchon possesses the special qualification of havingbeen at one time a good republican, it is said that Mr. Ilinchon was a howling Blaine man in 1884, and that his conversion to democracy dates from the time that he sighted the Algona Courier and the opportunity that it offered an enterprising man to become a leader of the democratic party in Kossutl county. His conversion to democratic principles is about as recent as that of Uncle lloroce Boies and other renegade republicans who are now prominent ii the democratic party. His old time republican afliliations are a special argument in favor of Mr. Ilinchon's candidacy from a democratic standpoint, as against that of Mr. Ryan and Mr. Wilson. In case Mr Ilinchon is honored with the nomination we suppose he will be willing to arrange for a series of joint discussions with Mr. Dolliver upon the tariff issue. The democratic congressional convention will be awaited with considerable interest. Removed to the Rink.

Bradley was a pleasant caller at the REPUBLICAN office Saturday. Mr. Johnson has but recently come to Kossuth, from Dallas county Iowa, and located in the vicinity of Burt. Mr. Johnson was formerly a telegraph operator. There is now strong talk of organizing a uniform rank, K. of P., to take in the lodges of Spencer, Ruthven, Emmetsburg and Algona, meeting alternately at the four towns. The K. of P. in this city, though young, is already one of the strongest lodges in the proposed district, and is ready to furnish its proportion of membership.—Free Press. Colonel S. S. Sessions started for Minneapolis, Monday morning, and got as far as Bancroft, when he was reminded of some business that must be attended to, and was obliged to return. The Colonel finally got away on j the Milwaukee in the evening. The best proof that Mr. Peterson- Hudson & Shadle's successor in the photograph business—is a good artist, is found in the fact that he has the enterprise to advertise and tell the people what he purposes to do. See his advertisement elsewhere in this paper, and if you want anything in the line of photographs give the new photographer a trial. Mr. Peterson invites the public to call and inspect samples of his work and get his prices. There was a large crowd of farmers Oiu- Xew Factory. Mr. Spurbeck, of Bremer county, the gentleman who is putting in the butter tub and furniture factory, is in town today looking for a good location for their plant, which is to be erected immediately. The bonus offered he says is perfectly satisfactory, and building will be commenced as soon as a suitable location is secured. He expects to be in working order by November 1st. The plant will necessitate the expenditure of between $3,500 and $4,000 and will be a considerable addition to the manufacturing institutions of Algona. Mr. Spurbeck is a pleasant gentleman and we wish him success. The work of laying the new water- mains will be commenced as soon as it has been determined where the new mains are to go. We are informed that a contract is not likely 'to be made with the Northwestern road as was expected. The Northwestern people are not willing to pay enough for the water to warrant the city in going to the expense of laying a water main to the depot, not to mention what would be a reasonable remuneration for furnishing the water after the mains had been laid.

Gallery over Republican Office. A. L. Peterson. Miss Laura Waters left Monday morning for her home at Columbia, Missouri, where she will spend the summer, returning in time for the opening of the fall term August oOth. A. A. Branson and wife, Will Brunson, J. E. Jones, A. D. Clarke and a number of others left Monday for the scene of the convention at Minneapolis. Nearly all of the Algona delegation to Minneapof is are shouting Blaine men. Andy Robinson, Sheets former drug clerk, and well known by everyone, was over from Britt with his wife visiting relatives and friends, Sunday. The drug business at Britt seems to agree with Andy. —_ ^ *•*« •— Kofebuth County Mutual Insurance Co. The annual meeting of the Kossuth Mutual Insurance Company will be held in the city of Algona pn Tuesday, June 14th, 1893, commencing at 10 o'clock a. m. E. BfcACKFQHD, Sec. in town last Saturday notwithstanding the new buildings are progressing rapidly this fine weather. The excavation for the cellar and the foundation of the Clarke buildings next to the Courier otlice is completed. The old Tailor building is now all torn down and removed and the walls of the new bank building willbe commenced shortly. An excavation is being made for the basement of the opera house building. If good weather continues the Avails of these several buildings will be going up in a few days. A visit to the city water works Monday, while the pump was in operation, showed everything running smoothly, and leads us to believe that Algoua is particularly fortunate in the matter of water supply. Mr. A. F. Daily, who has charge of the concern, is ready to explain all the .workings of the pump and machinery, and seems to thoroughly understand what he is talking about. He has not yet been made the superin- tendant of water works, but undoubt- W. L, JOSLYN. JULIUS PLETH. Dealers. Do you want to sell your Farm; if so, list it with us at once. We can find you a buyer.

Corn planting is practically completed and the corn is coming up nicely. Farm work is much further progressed than we had supposed possible. Unless unfortunate in having an early frost corn will be a good crop in Kossuth County this year notwithstanding the late season. The county Sunday School convention held iu Algona Saturday and Sunday was not very largely attended by delegates from outside sunday schools. The old officers of the county association were re-elected for another yeai and a vice president was also elected t'oi each township having a sunday school The different sessions of the conven tion were full of interest and the dele gates derived considerable profi through the interchange of ideas.
