The stores were packed all day long, and the streets were like a city. Soveral remarked that they had not seen so many people in Algona before except when some special occasion called them out. Mrs. G. C. Burtis writes a letter to the Lu Verne News describing their trip on the Canadian Pacific road to the coast. It is interesting throughout. As one item we quote her market prices at Winnipeg. "Butter sold for 80 cents a pound; eggs 35 cents per dozen; milk 20 cents per quart, and apples six for a quarter, etc." The stag our water-works .contractor, J. R.

The grief over this untimely death is general, and in their bereavement the parents have the sympathy of all. The little girl was the picture of rosy health, and was in every way a child of great promise. Her sudden death ends a bright and happy life. On Wednesday last, the 17th, occurred the marriage of H, L. Kimball and Miss Hattio M. Walker, at tho residence of the hitter's brother, John K. Walker. Rev. F. M.

Tho trouble has come to our old Ramsayito through too much credit, and though ombarrased ho will got through and have something left. His assets are fully enough to cover all liabilities, but he was unable to realize. The Republican editor forgot to come over to line! those "democratic" quotations in our files and got his $25. Ho knew they were not to be found, and confesses to another falsehood. Tho Republican has made many friends for the UPPEK DES MOINES among those who do not accept our views. The Republican will find that honesty is still considered a virtue, and that the want of it is not atoned for by loud professions. Tho criminal docket was cleared up last week- by tho fining of W. Pender, who was indicted by the grand jury for selling beer at Wood's package house, 8BO and costs by 'Squire Clarke. Ho agreed to pay if tho indictment was dismissed, and tho same course was pursued as with Chas. Stewart. The county gets $80 and more, rather than have a prisoner to board out a big fine. The policy of our peace officers is to be commended. Mr. and Mrs. Walter Thomas are making their homo with their daughter, Mrs. E, Tollier. Mr. Thomas came to Humboldt county in the fall of 1858, and for years was the old tavern keeper in the days when Frank Hist ran the stage line, and everybody north'of Fort Dodge was part of the same neighborhood;. He was a well'known flgvu-e to all old settlers, and all will fBgfet t learn that his health lia? seriousl failed. Both he and Mrs. Thomas ar getting old and are ho longer able t take care of themselves, and enjoy th excellent home they now secure. Mfs. T'i M.
