i it ."* -t.'t ~ i' ' i • MjgjTOfflBSt ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 1890, }!IS MEMOEANM. _i^« Cttifteiis Who are Rivals for Election Aftermath- Jottings. IA generous rivalry for fame has img up between Mayor Jones and Gat-field, and they are now contest- Hg over the extent to which their ex-' ploits have been spread abroad, fir* Held has received a letter from Scot- ad about his bicycling, while up to JFtlate the mayor has only got to a maga- ^published in London and New York, "Babyhood." the publication is naturally indignant over his alleged slight to the younersters, and hauls him over the coals is vigorous fashion: " The town of Algona in far off Iowa, enjoys the distinction of having pro* duced the most confirmed batchelor 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. 1 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 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 tho 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 caucuses, a fair convention, and a full vote. The people elect and defeat, and that is the glory of this great 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 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. Tho 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 tho heartiest encouragement. to Iowa when farmers eould get good serviceable animals to start e, herd as cheaply as noW, and there never wad ft time when It was so iinperitavely necessary to raise npjMng but good Stock.

Durant Bros.-32t3 A Business Scheme, The agent of the Northwestern Life Insurance company of Milwaukee has been at work the past week on a .scheme which promises well for Algona. He is an expert machinist, and agrees, if he can get $00,000 of insurance, to buy the foundry and devote his time to it for five years. Out 1 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 ho could easily make the foundry an institution of great value to the county. He is meeting a very 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, and he had been offered $300 for them. But this club is Jist established at the capital city, and as a fine building in which the collection will be properly cared for, and Mr, Smith preferred to make a present of item. Algona will regret to loose so fine a collection of birds. Great Sale of Short Horns At "Wll* lowedgo. The largest from one herd ever held in northwestern Iowa. So much of my time being employed in matters outside of my farm life, making it impossible to give the necessary attention to my large herd—now over 800 head—I have concluded to offer at public sale a large part of it, at least 150 head of good practical cattle; 85 to 50 bulls, low bui«, stocky fellows; 100 or more fe- BHales. AH old enough, will either have a c»lf at side pr fee in can. There has never fcew a time singe the "Short Horn" came Wesley. WESLEY, Nov. 17.—The beautiful snow is all gone and tho 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 Lawson of this place. There wero two car loads of emigrants movables unloaded at this place last week. Both of them belonged to parties from Dakota. Our good crops for the past year and our rich soil are beginning to attract the attention of a good many that used to think it was useless to stop in Iowa and pay from six 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 tho 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 tho 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 tho 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 bo 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. Bonson, 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 formerly occupied by John Gill for a butcher shop. Henry Donelson of Decorah, Iowa, was here for a few days visiting his brother-in- law, J. James, of this place. The following is the grain market: Wheat, 70@76o; oats, 85; flax, $1; barley, Steers Taken Up. Two 2-year-old steers came into our herd the past summer. Prove property, pay charges, and take them away. 32t3 KAIN & HUNT. Purchasers, Uetvare! Purchasers are hereby warned not to buy a note and mortgage given by me to the Collins Plow company, as the same will not be paid, 33t2 JAS. MARICLE. CONTAGIOUS DISEASES. Recommendation of the State Board of Health About Scarlet Fever and Other Diseases. Dr. Barr hands us the following items from tho 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 greatest 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 the Tfnth.
