The Rev. Mr. McDonald of Emmetsburg will officiate at St. Thomas' mission on Sunday next. Tnere will be a celebration of the holy communion after the morning service. Some complaint has been made about the market prices given by our contemporaries. The highest figures quoted by the UPPER DBS MOINKS are actually paid each week as given. J. F. Nicoulin has begun a reform that will spread. He has put in an oak plank sidewalk. Oak costs no more than pine, and the difference in our city crossings shows how they wear. Now that potatoes are getting to be so big a crop with us, it will pay to look over the item this week on selecting seed. If big seed corn gets its like, why will not big seed potatoes do the same? Geo. C. Call received a letter from A. F. last week in which he wrote of the campaign. Both he and A. L. Hudson have been on the stump for Geo. D. Perkins, and the contest was considered very close. The school board at its last meeting agreed to purchase the latest edition of the Encyclopedia Brittanica for the use of the schools. This is the most valuable reference book in existence, and is now very cheap. Charlie Stewart, who is reported to have been indicted by the grand jury for selling beer, has sold his restaurant and is not likely to again make Algona his home. The grand jury did some good if this is true. The reading room has lately added some 20 new volumes to its library, all of them, new and entertaining books. They have all the leading periodicals, and a pleasant room, and a number of weekly visitors is increasing. Word comes from California that Miss Nannie Waldo, so well known to the Algona young people, died recently of heart disease. The information was received by Morris Chapin, from, Qhas, ot Minneapolis, FriihU Jeiiltliisoii has another proof that fdl'miiig pays. He got 100 bushels bt i'Utabagas on an acre of ground and Sold them last week for 50 cents a bushel. All they cost was 25 cents for seed, and pulling them out of the ground, Mrs. A. M. Horton has been fortunate at last in getting the pension to which she is entitled as a soldier's widow. Her allowance is §12 a month and §2 each for her two sons. Her friends will bo pleased to know of her good fortune. It is expected that Mrs, Carrie Lane Chapman, a lady who has been doing such effective work for prohibition in Nebraska, will speak to the ladies of Algona on Monday afternoon, Nov. 10. Further notice of the lecture will be given. Hollow'een was observed in usual fashion Friday evening, and sidewalks, out houses, gates, etc., suffered. The only part of the entertainment which Was missed was having the celebraters contribute to the city treasury. No one was caught. Prof. Dodge has received a very fine set of Johnson's Universal encyclopedia for the normal school library-. The professors and students are enthusiastic in their efforts to place first class books at their command. Let the public encourage theni. The monthly report of the city schools has been crowded out again this week, ft shows by comparison with last year a big gain in all respects, and speaks ^vell 'for the management. We regre'tthat our space is limited, so as to not give it in full. Garter's advertisement in this issue caftp attention to the big stock of clothe •itehe te pvt'tting tn.for n slaugBte* ,.,e. w goods are all aew and conw Ho ou*^tooer on a land deal, and will go cheap, llefnetnber the old post office r06M, and Bee his stock. Wm, Colby was in Monday to get cop ies of the McKinley bill for circulation and in conversation got to talking of the Clayton-Breckenridge contest m Ar kansas. He said he knew the Claytons Well, being once state superintenden'' of schools in that state, and he felt t deep interest in the outcome. We acknowledge the receipt of wed ding cards which announce the mar ritigoof Jas. I. Sawvel and Mary E Brown, Miss Brown lived at Larch land, 111,, and the new couple are now at home at Big Clifty, Ky. Mr, Sawve is the well-known son of our Algona citizen, and we wish him nil happiness and success. Market prices are a little lower Last week oats brought 42 cents, bu 1 now they stand, 37@40c; wheat 80@85c barley, 40@44c; corn, 30@40c; flax $1.23; hogs, $8.60@3.GO. Hay brings $3.50 steadily, ana other produce is quiet. Immense quantities of every thing are coming to market, and out elevators are rushed. Col. Spencer must have an eye out for Sexton. Hobart is in the ring, am with quite a boom, Ball & Bronson have a big hay barn up, Escar Bailey hus a big hay barn, and it is reportec that Frank Potter will soon preside over a hay barn and grain warehouse. We are bound to be impartial and it is how Hobart and Sexton for it with a free field. H. K. Hess is in town supervising the repairs on the Thorington. Ho reports that his storage battery is a success and within three months street cars will run in Dos Moines with it. It has immensely increased power over any other battery and is not expensive or unhandy. With it cars will bo run without the overhead wire, and without any connection under ground. The advertisement of R. J. Hunt's big farm for rent means that after 26 years' hard work both he and Mrs. Hunt want a little rest. Mrs. Hunt has been sick for several weeks past, and if they can rent the farm they will snend a year in taking life easier. They will not leave the county, but ho will spend his time in repairing and cleaning up his ground. The first entertainment of the normal school will be given tomorrow evening. It is entitled the "Festival of the Seasons," and will furnish amusement to all. Mus_ic and other exercises will be given with more substantial 'eatures, all at moderate cost. The exercises will be at the court house, and everyone should go. Give the normal students the encouragement of a big attendance. We have received a great many com- jlaints the past week from subscribers who did not get papers. We are as careful as possible in writing the lists, and must request the postmasters to be equally so in distributing. Papers which we remember to have mailed are •eported missing. If any subscriber 'ails to get the paper regularlv, he should notify us, and also send in for copies at once. While not the most entertaining oiece of news, the tax list will, we feel sure, be perused with interest. Treasurer Lantry follows the custom of his jredecessors in giving the publication ;o two papers, thus allowing everyone n the county an opportunity to see if liis name is included. The list is larger ;han it ought to be for such a year as ;his. Neglect is responsible for most oi it, as can be seen by looking it over. Hon. B. I. Sallinger was greeted by a arge audience Friday evening and en- iertained them with a witty and sensible discussion of the issues. As the cam- mign is now over there is no occasion ;o d_well on his remarks farther than to jraiso the frankness with which he landled the tariff. No fairer discussion of that was ever made in Algona. \lr. Sallinger is an orator, and a young man who will come to the front in Iowa. Paul's lumber yard comes to the i-ont this week with an attractive ad- rertisement. It calls attention to one of the best stocks ever put in Algona, and the sales being made speak for jrices. Among these are the lumber or the Episcopalian chapel. During ihe past week they sold the lumber for '. B. Whitney's new 22x40 foot store at 3urt, and for the new 20x26 foot house I. L. Thompson is building east of town. They defy competition in prices. Another change is to be reported in he Thorington management. Mr. Dunn retires and Mr. W. S. Davenport f DCS Moines takes his place. Mr. )avenpqrt is an old hotel man, and oines with the intention of running-the louse in first class style. It will be ewly papered and painted, and bil- ,ard and pool tables will be put in the sample room, It is not decided where Mr. Dunn will go, but he will take another hotel. Ho hafl made many friends in Algona, who will 1'egl'et that he is to leave. S. W. Bartlett has a sister in Germany studying music. In a late letter she said that beef was a rather scarce article on the table and also pork, on account of the high prices in German markets. J. B. Jones on the other hand told us yesterday that beef heifers in southern Minnesota were selling at a cent a pound. Between these two 'conditions there is a woeful amount of stupidity, dishonesty, and downright stealing 1 . There are none so blind as those who won't see, The story is told on a prominent farmer that he promised his boy last spring that he could have all the flax he could got on the land he would break by staying away from the circus or some show at the time. The boy broke some two acres, and his flax proceeds were nearly $30, but 'the old gentleman thought that Was loo good and was only Willing to give $5. The result is that the boy is now for himself over near Sheldon, and his father wants to sell out, as he caa^ farm alone. Whatevet taay be said of California there is no/discount on its fruit. C. E. Hyde put 'this office under obligations by presenting us a box of pears, peaches, apricots, prunes, and raisins, all raised'on Dr. Forbush's place and dried of evaporated by himself. Finer fruit wfcave never seen. Mr. Hyde is making 'arrangements to furnish some of 'this dried fruit to our merchants, and .e people will then be able to get the ipst. He speaks highly of the doctor's fruit farm, and is going into the evaporating extensively. All fruit there is dried in the sun, which is what they call evaporating. GREAT SLAUGHTER -03?- We have just opened, in the old postofflce room, a large stock of Clothing and [NTS':-: Taken in a real estate deal from one of the largest manufactures in the west.

Everyone at this season of the year is interested in the question of how best to warm and beautify their homes ; what stove will heat the most surface with the least amount of fuel ? etc., etc. I wish to say that in making my selection of stoves this fall I gave this question CAREFUL ATTENTION and am sure I selected as good in every respect as there are in the market.
