The ladles of the Congregational church give a cardinal supper tomorrow evening at 0 o'clock. The heavy rains, of the past week have been very fortunate. Wells add fall plowing both needed it.

Sho httjPfibon unwell for a couploof weeks. v ^SMSS'^ffluS'^S load of the celebrated A. A. Cooper wagons being- unloaded today. J, W. Bartlott has received a letter from tho railway commission asking about the Northwestern passenger service, and if it is now satisfactory. B.'A. Meyers bought a car load of oats of J. B. Jones last Thursday, pay- Imr 82 cents a bushel. That was a high- water price but thoy wwogopa p&ts, The meeting of Baptist churches tot the organization of a now association Is In progress, and attended very fully. A lull report Is delayed until noxt week. Bert Hallock has gone back to the oases in tho Eepnblican office, and El. Dalton takes his place in tho post office. El. proves a very handy manipulator with tho mail. Our old landlord, Alex Younie, has just threshed on his farm at West Bend and is bragging of over 00 bushels of oats tothe awe, and they weighed more than the machine measure. A subscriber writes from Seneca: "I am much pleased with your paper, and •will do what I can to increase its circulation." That is a great deal better than a kick in tho back, its tho old saying is. The Methodist church has secured the services of Miss Fahnstalk, the musical instructor of the normal faculty, to take charge of their choir. Sho is a ' . musician of superior ability, and the ' church is very fortunate in having her aid. Thos. Hanna went through the streets with a little prouder stop yesterday than usual, all because he is now "grandpa." Tho new comer is a girl, at Myron Schenck's, and her. father is even prouder of her than her grand father is. J. L. Paine is removing the remains of his old house just oast of Jus. Henderson's. It was one of tho early residences of Algona, and now that fire has taken Dr. Read's and the Henderson house, its removal takes away the last landmark. Marshal Dailoy took a couple of tramps Monday. One of them was just starting out on a begging expedition showing a big fly blister on his hana. After laying in jail over night, Mayor Jones gave them half an hour to leave town in, and thoy promptly complied. The water works are about whore thoy wore last week except that a lot of tho mains and foundation stone have been unloaded. Work will begin soon. Wo learn lhat it is tho intention of tlie contractors to hire most of their help here, in which event work will bo plenty for the next few weeks. The-delayed mail this morning makes it impossible to give yesterday's Chicago market. The local market prices are unchanged. Oats stand at SOc; wheat, 880; llax,$1.80; corn, 860; hogs, $3.75@8.80; eggs, 16o; loose hay, $3.60. - The general tendency of tho Chicago prices during tho week has been lower. A fine musical entertainment is promised for noxt Tuesday evening at the court house. Huiost & Stout's company will appear in specialties. They have a fine street band, and advertise a number of excellent musicians, and plenty of entertainment. Thoy come noxt Tuosday,Oot. 22.

His store and Bowyer's jewelry will go well together, and they will have one of the finest stands in town. The mention of F,. G.

Tellifag of big crop returns is getting to be an old story. Everybody has them. But Gteo. Siffipkins made a flax speculation Worthy .of .^cofd, He bought a quarter within three tniles of town last spring for $10 an opfe, putin 50 acres to flax, and last week sold $18.* 00 worth of flax to the- acre. Besides his breaking and seed, he paid for half his land out of the first crop on 60 acres. In what other country do they do that/ This office is busy getting out catalogues for J. B. Jones] herd of short horn cattle, no slight job, as he has 180 head to bo described. His sale is set for Nov. 6, and ought to attract buyers from all quarters. There are no better cattle in lown, and they should be kept to make the beginning of the full blood stock, some day to bo on every farm in the county. Every farmer can afford one full blood, and one will make a herd quicker than one would think. Ed. Donovan stated last Friday before a number of people that a year ago A. A. Sifert offered him the Eepubli- can a year free and a dollar besides if he would take it. Mr. Sifert was then acting as agent for that paper. He gave the Republican to Frank Donovan for six months free, and the publishers swore him in abona fide yearly subscriber before the board. We knew of this tho day after the contest was decided, j Those are samples of th? Republican's mothodBi ; A pleasant marriage was Celebrated at the Catholic church Monday morning, J. E. Mnlnroe and Miss Lizzie O'Rourke being the contracting parties. The bride is the daughter of our Riverdale supervisor, and a very attractive young lady, well known in Algona and the south part of the county. Mr. Mclnroe is Wilson's "buyer at Sexton and one of the active young business men who have grown up in the county. A host of friends wish them good luck, and among them the UPPER DBS MOINES. The contract for the St. Thomas Mission church has been let to Peter Purvis, and work will begin as soon as the foundation is laid. The plans call for a very handsome little church, . It will be 54 feet long and 82 feet wide at one end, and 20 feet at the other end. A tower rises at the middle of tho west side, and this, as well as the general style of architecture, is .both odd and attractive. The coiling of the room will be gothio in style, the sides being 12 feet high, while the middle of tho arch will be 24 feet. W* . fia e & vifdt at hl&old bo&e ift SydatMdTe, HI ejapt. afld tttt. Smith started for fk kotfe yesterday for a visit with relatives. fa &> Court opened yesterday afternoon, Judge Thomas being present, and W. R. Lamoreaux as reporter. This is the judge's only visit for a year, and his many Mends are pleased to see him in much improved health. It is Reporter Lamoreaux's first visit in three years. Nothing was done yesterday. The well case will be heard this term, but the " Y " case will probably bo postponed, as Mr. Parker is down with nervous prostration at his home in Spencer. Among the visiting attorneys we note John Cliggitt of Mason City, Judge Cook, J. C. Raymond, and S, Mayne. The farmers in Fenton have held a meeting and decided on a, co-operative creamery. They will issue 60 shares of ip50 each, and have assurances of being able to get enough subscribers. No work will be done till next spring, but then active operations will begin. These co-operative creameries have been a big success at Burt, and at Fairville, just over tho lino in Palo Alto. But in other places they have proved loss profitable than the others, and have gone out of business. Fenton has the right kind of men to make a success of anything and they will doubtless be numbered with the winners. A big cattle sale was made yesterday by Chubb Bros, and Chm Walker to the Peoria firm who have bought so long in this section, Chubb Bros, put in 200 head and Walker 160 head. They got in the neighborhood of $2,75, the cattle ranging over 1100 pounds, and drove to West Bend to load on the Burlington road, which runs directly to the yards. A week ago R. J. Hunt, Pat Kuin, O. Mclnroe, and the Gilbrides sold about as many more cattle to the same parties at about the same rates. Many of these intended to feed, but decided that corn would be too high. These sales mount up into tho thousands of dollars, and speak 'for us as a stock county, Algona had a distinguished visitor in Win. Shaw Adamson last Thursday. He came over from Emmetsburg with W. E. G. Saunders, the manager of Blairgowrio, and spent the forenoon in looking after his land interests. In tlie afternoon with C. L, Lund and W. H. Ingham he drove over Mr. Lund's farm, and inspected his barns and feeding arrangements very carefully, and expressed surprise at finding so perfect arrangements so far west. At the conclusion of tho visit he invited Mr. Lund and Mr. Ingham to visit him at Blairgowrie, and they went yesterday. Mr. Adamsou is an ox-member of parliament, the owner of vast estates in Scotland, in 1 one whose wealth puts him among the loading men of the kingdom. His Blairgowrio farm is a big one even for the west and he feeda this winter 1000 head of cattle. SPECIAL attention given to children's suits at Taylor's. Rock salt cannot be beat for stock, 75 cents per hundred at Townsend & Langdoirs. Al A, JohfiSotl of the CJorwith Descent Was a pleasant calk* this mortnng. 3. W. Heighten, Llvertnofe's live hardware merchant, was on otir attests last week. A. A. flrunson is enjoying a visit from his nephew, Mr. Parks, who is on his way from New York to California. Father McCaffrey made his old parishioners a visit last week. He is located ut Fonda, in Pocahontas county. Jos. W. Hays, of the Republican force, was a Sioux City visitor last week. He says rain interferred with the closing davs of the corn palace exhibit. Jas. Taylor and his father went to Omaha Monday. From there the old rentleman goes on alone to visit his JaUghter, Mrs. T. Barley, during the winter. Will Haggard, who has been at work in the Republican office for some time, has gone to Milwaukee to try his luck there. Ho hopes to get a job on the Sentinel. E. H. Slogle went to Minneapolis Monday evening. If he gets tho place he looks for he will not return, and Mrs. Slae-lo.will follow ;vith the household goods. Rev. Davidson returned from attending the meeting of tho American board at Minneapolis Monday, Mrs. Smith, Mrs. Stacy, Mrs. Pettibone, and Mrs. B. F. Reed return today. Will Price, who went to Des Molnes to act as clork for H. A. Latta and who was taken sick with bilious fever, is homo after a six week's illness. He lookg th9 worse for wear, but is getting, 'better vapidly, Guy GroVo started this morning for", Grinnell where he goes as a delegate to the state convention of the Young Peo-' pie's Christain Endeavor society. The meeting lasts three days and he will remain throughout. F. G. Yeoman, formerly agent for the State Leader, was a pleasant caller last week. He remained in town to see tho Fourth ward caucus, and was well repaid. The Fourth warders can give points to the whole state. Heise's barber shop looked natural last week, owing to a visit from August, now a St. Paul tonsorial artist. He had been to Sioux City to see the corn palace and stopped here on '.his return. He is still in tlie Ryan house shop. L. C. Chandler, who was in Des Moines some weeks ago having his eyes treated, returned yesterday and will remain until better. His sight was much improved before but he strained his eyes after returning, and they are now in bad shape. Mr. Tuttle, who for some months occupied the John Robinson house, was back in Algona Saturday. He moved to Chicago about three months ago to handle hay on commission. He says he has done a good business from the start, and likes Chicago. He says lack of cars alone holds the price of hay up, and that it will inevitably come down if a big supply can be shipped in. B. F. Reed is home from his trip looking up the evidence in the Foster murder case. Ho visited 'the spot where his brother was killed and made a rough sketch of it with a crayon. It shows an attractive spot in the woods, but removed from houses. He says some evidence they had. before is lost, but he found some more that they did not have, and he feels confident they can still convict the murderer. • J. R. Jones attended the annual meeting of the grand chapter at Cedar Rapids last week, and reports a very full and enthusiastic masonic gathering. He served as chairman of one of the leading committees. The officers chosen wore: Gen. Quinbyof Shenandoah, grand high priest; Wm. Wilfer- haus of Cresco, deputy high priest; C. S. Fletcher of Atlantic, grand king; F. M.
