Services at 1) o'clock All uro Invited to fttteAd, Miss Edith Clarke's Graduation at Evanston—A Pleasant Wedding—Miscellaneous Local. In u conversation with Potor A. Doy of tho board of railway commissioners, last week, ho stiid that sovurul letters had been received from Northwestern officials asking that no action bo taken on tho complaint from this line, as they hod plans for better service. Tho commission are waiting to see what they intend to do. The Northwestern Is being candidly discussed at other points. Tho Carroll Sentinel says in its last issue: " It is well known, or at least everyone thinks ho knows, that the policy of the Northwestern, as well as of other Iowa roods, Is to make no improvements in this state that are not absolutely necessary. About tho only thing the Northwestern is doing in the way of improvement in tho stale at present, is tlie building of a double track between Clinton and Cedar Rapids. This was begun last week, and was mode necessary by tho enormous increase in the road's business." To this increase Carroll, Algona, and plenty of towns similarly situated have materially contributed. Tho Northwestern owes it to these places to make such Improvements as at least put its service on a par with that of average roads of tho state. There is not a road in Iowa at all similarly situated that gives so poor passenger service as tho Northwestern does on this branch. An Evuiibtoii Graduate. The following complimentary notice Is received from a resident of Evanston, 111.: Miss Edith Clarko has won fresh laurels ut Northwestern University, from which institution she was graduated with tho degree of bachelor of literature, Thursday, Juno 10. During her fpur years at Evanston, Miss Clarke, by her uniform courtesy and her industry as a student, hus won a very high place In tho estimation of both professors and students. The magnificent completion of her career at North- typptPfn } s full proof of this fact. Honored by her classmates and by tho faculty, she has rounded out her halcyon college days in a highly creditable manner. She has boon awarded first grade honors in scholarship and special honors in tho departments of history and French, in which branches she has become especially proficient. Her class elevated her to the dignified position of class poet, and on class day she read u very sweet original poem which was universally praised. After a your of hottest competition among the members of tho sonlor class, Mho was one of tho happy ton whon tho faculty chose to represent tho class on commencement day in competition for the Kirk prize in oratory. This is tho crowning event in a student's life at Evanston. Miss Clarke, with characteristic earnestness and with rare ability, discussed "The Race Problem." Her oration was well received, and mode u fine impression uppn the vast audience and tho judges of tho contest. The degree of bachelor was conferred' upbn-Algona's representative. It la understood that Miss Clarko has received a very flatterjpjr offer to teach In one of tho high schools of the wost. Kansas, president of tho National Teachers' association. Tho original package decision was discussed and tho conclusion was that it is tho best thing for prohibition that cvor happened. Tho per cent, of gain of Good Templars was shown to bo large, Increasing in membership from 280 in October II . to 1,700 at the present time. It was decided to hold the next district mooting in Algonn, providing Algona accepts. Tin 1 (looil Temiilnra' t:onvt-iillun. Tha county convention ol Good Temp- hirs will bo hold In Algona on Fridny. The afternoon exorcises will bo at Grange hall, und will bo devoted to organization. In tho evening a pro- gramme will bo given at tho Methodist church, in which Revs. Ward of Bancroft and Whitfiold and Smith of Algona will participate. Music and othot entertainments will bo provided, and an entertaining evening is insured. AV are invited. ABOUT ELECTRIC LIGHT. Some Figures Jleenrdluir tlie Cost of a Good Plant. A few figures concerning tho Marongo oloctrlct UK lit plant may bo of interest In Algona. Marongo is some smalloi than we are, nnd has put in just such a plant as has boon proposed here. I may bo said to begin with that tho dy namo is run above its capacity to supply the demand, and that,tho stock of the company is not on tho market. Tin people are very enthusiastic over it and will enlarge tho capacity as soon as it can bo arranged. Tho capital stocl of tho company organized at homo i $12,000, Of this $7,000 was paid for tin electric plant with a capacity of 50 lamps. Tho engine, etc., cost $2,278 and a flno brick building was built cost ing $2,000. The engine burns a ton o slack a day costing them $1, tho ongitl cor gets $00 a month, and tho firomai $25. The town uses sixty 82 candl lamps for street lighting. Theso arc the same as are used in tho houses am give a fine street light although not a bright as the white lights. For those tho town pays about $1,000 a year, remaining lamps are all in demand in the stores and houses. A 10 candl power light costs for three hours pel night, 60 cents a month. Throe o those light alarge roorr). A fine librar; light is ono 25 candle power lamp, ant a lamp for any room is a 82 «; power. Tho last cost for four hours i night, $1.50 a month, for thruo hours $1.25 u month, for two hours, DO oonts i mouth, and for one |)pur, 45 cents i month. A 10 candle power lump enough for bedrooms, etc. Considering ie consider tho electric lights cheapo en r , . convenience, work, dirt, etc., tho peo p t han oil, and use all they can got. grade . A Happy Mnrrlojfe, Tho marriage of Miss Lora Rico to O. W. Pangburn of Elmore was con- Bumjnjrtod at the bride's homo in Plum Creek township last Wednesday evening. Tho relatives and immediate friends of the bride and groom only wore present, and the ceremony yvaa performed by Roy, "Wm. Whltflold. Some very elegant and costly presents were received by the happy couple, and they left Thursday for the new home built for them in Elmoro, bearing away the heartiest good wishes of uU who know them. The bride became well lcn.own tp pearly everyone 'during her three year's ' wovU Jn the treasurer's otilce, and won universal esteem. The groom is tho lawyer, land agent, and all around business man of our thriving northern 'neighbor. Ho Is a graduate of Upper Iowa university located ut Fayette. and took his law course at Jpwa City. As a genial, trustworthy, and supopwf »l young lawyer and business ma» he Stondd Bjgh, »nd prosperity bio? fal? to attend Kirn. Good wlsUoe for happiness and all that Iou4p tp happiness go with them, and none Joins with jrroatov pleasure tbwi the D«fl p got. Th< city lamps run till midnight. Thi system used is the WostlnghouHo. Tin experience In Marongo certainly war rants the belief that when properly managed the electric light Is practic able, and not expensive. Should Algo na decide to adopt it, u big saving could be mode by combining the power on tho water works with the dynamo. One good engine could run both, and one building do for both. A Dangerous Policy. L. A. Bliootz, tho druggist, wishes to ra mind tils patrons that It is a dangerous policy to wait until taken sick boforo buy ing a bottlo of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy. Every family should bo provided with somo reliable remedy for bowel complaints, ready for imwedlBfp USP, whenever renutrod, during tho summer months, and this remedy is unquestionably far supm'lor to any pthor It can always be depended upon, and Is pleasant and safe to take, It Is put up in 30 and DO emit bottles.

THIS THING WE A Suggestion About Telephone foil ituotlons In tltu County, While Algona is making a vigorou effort to secure water works and ai electric light system, there is anothe thing which should not be overlooked and which would surely work to the benefit of all the county. It is thi establishment of telephone connection between tho county seat and its neigh boring county towns. It Is u matte: which wo believe has been but jittli discussed, but those from the othoi towns with whom we have talked 01 the subject express themselves us heartily favoring it. We have no figures from which wo can give thi probable cost of such an undertaking but it certainly cannot be a very : ox pensive affair. Other towns similarly situated find tho plan u great con venlence and much less expansive thai the telegraph. As a matter of'fuot there would probably be little differ once in tho number of telegrams sent but tho telephone, for those Bhor distance messages, would come into general use. It ought not to require much persuasion for somo one who Is in shape to do It to put in such a line, and while adding shockels to his own pocket convenience tho public ut the iurno time. • - ^ <\'o and ypp «1(P J»PQJ»|O, Do you want a good, square meal?
