THSJJPM1B DES MOIKESt ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 1890, Citizens Who a*6 Hifalft ft>* Election Aftertanth- tocai ,fottlngs. f-A generous rivalry for fame has jjrung up between Mayor Jones and f t (Jarfleldj and they are now contest• oter the extent to which their exploits have heen spread abroad. Dr. ttJaffleld has received a letter from Scot- ad about his bicycling, while up to ,te the mayor has only got to a maga- s published in London and New York, "Babyhood." The publication is naturally indignant over his alleged slight to the youngsters, and hauls him over the coals is vigorous fashion! " The town of Algona in far off Iowa, enjoys the distinction of having produced the most confirmed hatchelor in Christendom. According to a telegraphic announcement, its mayor has issued a proclamation forbidding the use of baby carriages on the sidewalks of the city. He claims a perambulator has no more right on a sidewalk than a lumber wagon or any other vehicle. Well may the despatch continue 'the edict has caused a sensation among the mothers of Algona, and it will probably be totally disregarded.' Should that benighted official, however, persevere in his wicked course, we shall not hesitate to submit his case for judgment to "The Mother's Parliament." As Scotland is farther than London, the doctor seems to have the advantage in point of distance. Credit "Where Credit Is Due. A comparison of the votes cast this : year and last, as well as many features of our political management, entitle the republican campaign committee to credit. In 1889 there were 2,279 votes 1 in all, the republicans getting 1,226, ^ and the democrats 1,055. In 1890 there were 2,411 votes in all, 'the republicans getting 1,285, and the democrats 1,126. The largely increased vote shows that as full a vote was out as is usual, and that the republicans gained their share of the increase. The committee, through Mr. Chubb chairman, also deserves credit for having the caucuses all called the same day, and the calls duly published. The calls were all written here and sent out, thus insuring the fairest caucuses we have yet had. Mr. Chubb also sent letters to each chairman _advising and urging township organization besides doing personal work. It is idle to claim that a chairman can make people vote what they don't want to. It is enough for him that there were full cawcuses, a fair convention, and a full vote. The people elect and defeat, and that is the glory of this ^reat American country. Mr. Chubb is entitled to credit for his work, and the result is as good as anyone could have secured. Normal School Matters. Prof. Dodge has sent his oldest boy to northern Minnesota for a change of air and climate, in the hope that his asthma may be overcome. The boy is 15 N \ years old, and very sick. It was largely on account of hie health that Prof. Dodge came north, and should the air of the pineries be of no avail he will take him to Denver. Prof. Dodge will go north as soon as the fall term of school closes, and spend his vacation, returning for the opening of the winter • term. The school prospects for the winter term are very bright. The professor has received assurances of a largo attendance, and every indication is for a prosperous school. The professor and the other members of the faculty have made a most favorable impression on our people, and their continued stay insures success. As now managed, the school is a great credit to the county, and deserves the heartiest encouragement. As In Ye Olden Time. " Ye Olde Folks Concert" in costume will be given at the Congregational meeting house on the evening of Dec. 2, at 8 p. m., to which all are invited, old, young, and middle aged, without regard to sex or any other condition. A fine corps of singers will assist in rendering old and modern songs. There will also be instrumental selections interspersed through the evening's entertainment. The funds received from the concert will be used by the ladies' society of the church in good works. Admission, 80 cents; children under 12, half price. Tickets can be secured at Miss Dodd's or at the door. Come and enjoy yourself and help a good cause, A Business Scheme. The agent of the Northwestern Li' Insurance company of Milwaukee hi been at work the past week on < scheme which promises well for Algona. He is an expert machinist, and agrees, if he can get $60,000 of insurance, to buy the foundry and devote his time to it for five years. Our business men, many of them, know of his qualifications to build up a good iron business here, and there is no better insurance company than the one he represents. We hope to see him succeed, and believe that he could easily make the foundry an institution of great value to the county. He is meeting a vei-y favorable reception. A Generous Gift. John G. Smith has put the Highland 'club of Des Moines under a debt of obligation by the generous gift of his collection of birds, which were shipped Monday. There were 125 specimens, mostly of our game birds, ana ho had been offered $300 for them. But this club is just established at the capital city, and has a fine building in which the collection wj.ll be propel , ->d for, and Mr. Smith preferred . a present of them.

WESLEY, Nov. 17.—The beautiful snow is all gone and the farmers are finishing up their plowing and corn husking. The Methodists of Wesley stood by the women at their election last Sunday. There were only three votes cast against women being elegible to representation in the gen oral conference, while there were eleven for it. Peter Oleson and wife of Forest City spent Saturday and Sunday with Mrs Law- sou of this place, There were two car loads of emigrants movables unloaded at this place last week. Both of them belonged to parties from Da- iota, Our good crops for the past year and our rich soil arc beginning to attract the attention of a good many that used to think it was useless to stop in Iowa and pay from ix to ten dollars an acre for land, when they could go to Dakota and get land for nothing, and a good many of them think it is dear at nothing. There is not a farmer in the vicinity of Wesley that stuck to his farm for the past ten years but has prospered. They have paid for their farms besides making other improvements in the way of houses and barns, and there have been the most improvements in stock, especially in the horses. You can find in this vicinity as good a grade of horses as you will find anywhere in the state, and the same can be said of the cattle and hogs. But little has been done in the way of sheep raising, but G. S. McPherson has stuck to the sheep business for a number of years. He thinks there is nothing in the stock line that will pay any better than raising sheep if a farmer will give them his attention. The corn crop is proving to be better than the most of the people thought it would before they begun to husk. It is yielding largely per acre and of good quality. Scarlet fever has made its appearance again in our town in the family of Mr. .Ben- sou, our shomaker. We hope that it will not spread and become as serious as, it was last spring. Mr. Livermore has moved his barber shop down by the postofflce in the building form, erly occupied by John Gill for a butcher shop. Henry Donelson of Pecorah, Iowa, here for a few days visiting bis law, J. James, of this place. The following is the grain m&rke.t; Wheat, 70(g76o; oats, 8S; ft has been in the habit of spending his Sunday evenings to a very late hour somewhere ia Wesley, till last Sunday evening became home rather early. He was asked what brought him home so early, he said the old man threw the boot jack at him. Well It is about the time of year that old folks don't like to be disturbed, and it seems that a is the first thing they get hold of want to drive the neighbor's cat off the T|||pf the coal shed or their bed room winc^tt And since the old folks have got the boot^^ on the brain, we want to say to the average young man, look out for them, for it is said tnat a boot-jack in the hands of an old man, and tea : kettle of hot water in the hands of the old woman, are two of the worst things that there is to dodge in the dark. We have all the sympathy for the young man there is in the world, for we know that it used to be very nice to keep late hours and burn other folks kero- scene some 20 years ago, and no doubt it is yet, but beware young man, and keep your eye on the boot-jack.

Recommendation of the State Board of Health About Scarlet Fever and Other Diseases. Dr. Barr hands us the following items from the pamphlet of the State Board of Health on the subject of contagious diseases. They are worthy of careful attention: Scarlet fever is now believed to be one of the most contagious diseases. One attack does not always prevent subsequent attacks. The gi-eatest number of deaths from this disease is of children under ten years of age. Adult persons do sometimes have the disease. Scarlatina, and scarlet rash are identical with scarlet fever—equally dangerous and equally contagious. They are one and the same disease. Separate the sick from the well. Whenever a child has sore throat and fever, and especially when this is accompanied by a rash on the body, the child must be immediately isolated as completely as possible from other members of the household, and from other persons, until a physician has seen it and determined whether it has scarlet fever, diphtheria, or membranous croup. All persons known to be sick with either disease must be promptly and thoroughly isolated from the public not less than thirty days. There's No Use Denying th« Truth.
