THE tlPPESB BBS MOlNESl ALGONA, IOWA, WEBN1SBAY, 12, 1890. FOE A NORMAL LIBRARY, Thursday Evening's Entertainment a Mattering Success—Some Aged 'Cycle How Aigonians Were Hoaxed on the Wesson Fake—The Package Must Ob—Minor Mention. The opening entertainment of the normal school was given last Thursday '•evening* and was attended by a large and highly entertained crowd. As Prof. Dodge remarked in introducing the programme, the object was to get mottey for books of reference, and not as an exhibition of the work of the school— something to be given at the close of the term. The supper was finely gotten up, and much praise was given to the beautiful decorations. The seasons were all appropriately repre- ts of the hal the wor-k an sented, in different parts of the hall, d and were noticeable for taste displayed. At the close of the supper the pro- gramme of the evening was opened > by a duet by Misses Maud and Kate Smith, which was heartily encored. Their skill with the piano and violin is exceptional. Mrs. Wolfe read two pleasing, sketches, a litCi daughter of Mrs. Ke^yon's sang, and Miss Fahnstock gave a vocal solo, which was also encored. After another delightful song, a quartette consisting of Misses Fahn- stnck and Stowe, Prof. McCollum and C. M. Doxsee sang " Peter, Pumpkin Eater" with a bewildering variety of variations in imitation of choir singing. The variety was so varied that on the encore they got tangled up themselves, and amidst enthusiastic applause retired. This closed the programme and a delightful evening. Everyone went away well pleased, and wishing the normal school many returns of the happy evening. The net receipts we learn were sufficient to give the school a good start on its library. Exit Original Package. Algona is now without original package houses. Last week a party of temperance workers got together, and under their directions informations were filed against Wood and Alderman. Wood was brought before 'Squire Clarke and pleaded guilty on one count, and was fined $50 and costs, which he paid. He has since left town to remain till the final decision is rendered on his right to sell. Alderman pleaded guilty before 'Squire Taylor on two counts, and was fined $100 and costs. He is boarding his fine out on the county at the rate of $3.33 a day. This closes the liquor business until the law is finally settled. County Attorney Mayne was assisted by Messrs. Reed and Danson in the prosecution. A later development in the Alderman case was reached this morning. The defendant was willing to pay $50 and costs, and 'Squire Clarke went to Bancroft last evening and arranged with Mr. Mayne so that he should pay the one fine and appeal the other, the appeal to be allowed. Alderman has settled. on this basis, and is again at liberty. The settlement is a wise one for the connty. While in custody Alderman was costing the county his board. Now the county gets §50 and no expense, and §50 is a sufficient fine. up from Khoxyiile with the story that H> 1* Wtifison had been elected district judge in the Marion district. Of Course everyone was ,/suspicious, but he told the yarn seriyplyi and showed the tickets with Wassrofrs name on them, and everyoitogpnaUy agreed that it must he so. U^fpfaid that some of our prom- inenlrJiSjinocrats even wefct so far as to Writei-letters of congratulation to Was- apn over his success. And now it turns out the whole thing was a hoax. Wasson was on the democratic ticket, hut he got elected about as he did county attorney when he debated with E. Tel- Her. It was a good joke. Out 1 New Supervisor. The LuVerne News says of Mr. Lov ell, the newly elected member of the board: " Mr. L. D. Lovell, the newly elected supervisor from this. corner, will be found to be a man that is broad in his views and disposed to use all sections of the county fairly. He will suit the people and guard the interests of the county and he will be found agreeable and courteous at all times. Kossuth county never had a better member than he will make with necessary experience." Her T8th Birthday. To the Editor: The anniversary of Grandma Grove's 78th birthday was celebrated at her home on the 6th inst., all the children being present who could. They partook of a sumptuous dinner, after which grandma was presented by the children with a rich and costly easy rocking chair, for which she returns many thanks, and will long be cherished in her memory as a token of respect.

M. Clark, she will remain with them until spring. Elder Foss will preach at the school house every two weeks. The 4th of November dawned bright and sunny, and the men were all up and around bright and early for this was to be the day of the political contest. The voting men of a certain town, the name Of which was Fenton, assembled at the school house. After spending the day most of the men hurried home to do the chores so as to return early in the evening to count the votes. Meanwhile one of the prominent young men had been sent to the store, by the republicans, to get $1.75 worth of apples to treat the democrats with, but when they returned they found it to be a democrat election, and the republicans found dried on the desk for a treat instead of good eating apples. About 12 o'clock that night one man could be seen going east with a package of dried apples, and one could be seen going west with a market basket full, and we expect some one will live on dried apple sauce and pies for a few months. Oh, ye political men ! Don't trust that young man again, but take time to get them yourselves. A grand dance at the hall Thursday even ing, Nov. 27. A foot race between Lewis Tibbetts and Frank Newell, Nov. 27, for 810. Bicycle Rumors. . Dr. Garfield's record as a bicyclist is going the rounds of the press, and as usual most astonishing announcements are made. Here is one from the Sioux City Journal: "Dr. L. K. Garfield, Algona's 70-year-old 'cyclist, lays claim to being the' best and fastest bicyclist in the United States for a man of his age, and will substantiate his claim by planking down hard money for any reasonable amount to anyone who thinks that he isn't and wants to prove it." Another from the Journal of another as follows: "Dr. Garfield of Algona, the septugenarian bicyclist, has a rival in the person of A. L. Proctor of Iowa Falls, who is 74 years of age and has been straddling a wheel for the past four years. A race between the old gentlemen will probably result." We have not interviewed the doctor about either one, but if Mr. Proctor wants a racfVnp him make it manifest. Algona dpg'g f'°P° s6 . to take a back seat on t 1 ', r cle question. .

Frank Grose says that the Des Moines Valley News is an obscene sheet and should not be read in the families of Kossuth. The Bancroft belles all had a sleigh ride last Sunday. The fellows that traded off the honest miller because they thought he was going to be elected anyhow, are kicking themselves hard these days. Our templar's lodge numbers 72. Some hundred dollar monuments are being put in our cemetery. J. A. Freeh commenced his school in sub district^fo. 8, Swea township last Monday. A pleasant party of young people gathered at the Farmers' home last Tuesday evening to get up a surprise party to the Misses Adda and Lela Davison, and after carrying the Davison residence by storm, they proceeded to have a good time in the shape of games, charades and the like. It was pronounced a success by all present. It is said that J. A. Winkel will build a new steam elevator in the spring. Verily Bancroft is a booming town. LuVerne. LuYEitXE, Nov. 10.—Ed.

Immense quantities of grain .and hay have found a market in West Bend in the past few days. Mrs. G. F. Emerson, whoso life has been despaired of for some time past, is now in a fair way for recovery. Mrs. Lonzerbeam,. who has been sick for some time past, is in a dying condition. Our lodge of I. O. O. F. installed officers last Monday evening. Nov. 3. Dr. Bachman is busy visiting his numerous patients both day and night. Mrs. Mary G. Lloyd of Cedar Rapids gave a temperance lecture at the Presbyterian church in this place on Sunday evening which was replete with logical deduction, withering sarcasm, and surpassing eloquence. As an orator and reformer, Mrs. Lloyd stands in the front rank. The Courier in its last issue reports C. G. Wright as procuring an illegal vote at the late election. Not so fast Mr. Courier, Mr. Wright did nothing of the kind. The chairman simply asked the party where he resided- His reply was that he lived on Mr. Wright's farm. No one present knew at the time that he had not lived in the county long enough to acquii'e a residence. Neither the board nor Mr. Wright were in any way to blame. It is to be hoped that the Courier will correct its statements in regard to the matter. WJilttemore.

One prominent member of the band was heard to remark that they intended to go ahead with their dance, and would charge 99 cents for dance and supper. They intended to have ah old- fashioned Thanksgiving supper of roast turkey and chicken, etc., and thought they could get their supper up with less cost than Mr. Kunz could; they Said they had appointed a coinmitte of their own number to go out at night and bring in the turkeys and chickens, and all could rest assured that they would have a nice time.

WESLEY, Nov. 10.—The first snow of the season is hero and our young people are making good use of it. C, E. Oleson, one of our popular merchants, had his horse and cutter out early Sunday morning, taking his best girl out for a ride. The snow makes the farmers feel like having their corn husked, bnt few of them have only just begun to husk. Grain has been coming to town lively the past two weeks. Our grain men haven't had time to scratch their heads or talk politics with the honest granger when he comes with a load of grain. The election is over, and while we cannot exactly rejoice with those that are rejoicing, we must confess that the result-is a stunner; but we don't intend to throw away the old party; we will do as old Mike Fink said he did when his old flint-lock gun would flash in the pan—pick the flint and try it again; and that is what we intend to do next fall. Wesley got there this fall with flying colors, and you will find her in line next fall. So let her go, Gallagher! Land seekers have been quite numerous in our town lately. Quite a number have bought close to Wesley and intend opening up new farms this coming spring. Rev. McBride held religious services here Sunday morning and evening, also preached at the Win. Ward school house in the afternoon. Mrs. Myron Dunlap of Stilson was visiting her uncle's family Saturday and Sunday. There seems to be considerable "plotting against the whites" of late in our burg. Among those that like to trip the light fantastic, viz., our Wesley band, haye been making preparations for a grand ball the night of the 87th in their hall. They ordered their handbills printed and are awaiting their arrival; but Ed. Kuuz, who always takes time by the forelock, paint* the town red with poster* stating that h,e intends to give § good b&li the night of the , to which all m invited.
