The Crosco farmers moot this evening at tho Boals' school house to talk up co-operative creamery. The Kossuth county bank statement is published this week and shows a healthy financial condition. The stand pipe had fifty feet of water in last night. The well Is furnishing from 10 to 30 gallons a minnto. The now billiard tables are up in the Thorlngton house basement, and an important addition made to the hotel. , Algona markets give wheat at 70@ 76c.', oats, 83@85c,; corn, 35c.; barley, 40@48c.; flax, $1.05; hogs, $3.10@$3.16. We notice that a copy of the history of Kossuth and Humboldt counties has been added to the state library tho past week. A little cold snap came last week, but it is again balmy and spring like. All agree that thus far this winter beats any on record. There will be a dime sociable at tho residence of Mrs. L. H. Smith Friday evening, .Tan. 10. It is a conundrum. Come and guess it. Miss Myrtle Nicoulin now rides a bicycle and makes Algona's second lady cyclist. She and Miss Richardson have both mastered tho wheel. most popular of comic OpertuS, The piece is cast with elich prominent artists asJ. C. Hartley tenor; Clement St. Martin (comedy), baritone; 3. C.

The driving park association held a meeting Monday evening to consider forming a racing circuit this season, and also getting this track admitted to the association. Nothing waa decided definitely, but stops will be taken at once to arrange for both. Mrs. Baker, an old lady aged 78, died last Week south of town and was buried Sunday, Rev. Smith preaching the funeral sermon at Irvihgton. She was the mother of Mrs. G. S. Parsons and other children well known in the county, and was highly respected by all. A full programme of the Mollie Scott Remsberg concert will be given in duo season, The entertainment will come Tuesday, January 27, and all who remember Mrs. Remsberg will attend. She will be assisted by her sister, also a remarkable musician, and by local talent. Rev, Davidson Is about to organize a literary society as an adjunct of the church work tho coming year, and a mooting will be held Saturday evening to adopt a plan of work. All young people are invited to attend. The project is worthy and much enjoyment can bo derived. Sheriff Stephens had a threshing machine attached at Corwith, and Monday got word that it had been stolon. Ho went over to see about it. Ho had been planning to go to Des Moines Monday, but delayed long enough to find out who had nerve enough to take a threshing machine that was in an officer's charge. Tho Irvlngton people are putting tho latest style assembly chairs In their now church. David Dutton was up yesterday to get them and they will soon bo in place. They are nearly as nice as tho best opera chair, and have all tho conveniences. THE UPPER DES MOINES will announce the dedication services in duo season. Then last Wednesday it came before the board and filed ft list 6f Subscriber* at $] and $1.25 a year, and admitted that it had taken others at 76 cents, that they were so charged in the books, attd that they knew the agent took them at those prices, and that they ad- cepted them at those prices. We commend these facts to the consideration of such as believe in common honesty as the basis of business competition. When before has there ever been a more humiliating spectacle of deceit, and confessed dishonesty? C. H. Blossom is not convinced that gathered cream is Wholly done with in creamery work. He says that their creamery has had the biggest run this season since 1887, and that many farm* era prefer to skim their milk, as they believe tho skimmed milk is much better for stock. They will, however, put in a separator at Whittemore and give patrons a choice, During the past year at Emmetsburg, Whittemoro and Algona they have made over 400,000 pounds of butter, and have had eighteen teams on the cream routes in this county. Aug. Stol-zbach at Algona, Henry Thompson at Whittemore, and Will Ster/bach at Emmetsburg are their butter makers. With their poultry business this firm is a very important business factor in the county and their success is a matter of credit. county for the republldaa frornlnatiori for govetftor. f his democrat, alludes to Gov.

Goo. Smitli is up from Ft. Doclgo visiting his father, Scott Smith. Mrs. Hurry Wilson is over from Emmetsburg this morning on a visit. F. S. Stough has gone to Minneapolis on a visit and will return next week. Mrs. John Grove returned last evening after an absence of several weeks. 8tO on I W. E. McMumiy lias put tho claim for insurance on his building in Geo. 13. Clarke's hands, and will get his money or put more with it. There will bo a special mooting of tho Woman's Belief Corps for the installation of officers Thursday evening. A full attendance ia requested. The comic opera, "Tho Doctor of Alcantera," will be given next Wednesday, Jan. 21. Tho company is very highly endorsed everywhere. Next Sunday morning tho Baptist pastor will speak on "Failures in Religious Profession." and in tho evening on "The Difficulty of Failure." The Sons of Veterans are preparing to observe Lincoln's birthday with a fine public programme. Tlio duto is Feb. 12, and particulars will be given in due season. Those who remember tho very successful farmers' institute laut year will be glad to learn that another will be held. It will be announced as soon us the committee can perfect plans. We hoar of many farmers this yor.r who have made !ji85 a head from their cows, That accounts for the butter factory boom, and it will bring tho cow up • ' to par again. Dairying pays, r ' S. C. Spear wrote not long- ago that , 'hhe should bo back to Algona with the '* early birds, and with the very early Ones, too. If this weather continues the . early birds will soon bo'hero. If aluminum is tak/jn from blue clay and is the best metal known, some of the people are figuring that some day Kossuth will be a great metal quarry , , Wo other such clay bod exists as we aro in. L. C. Murphy, who is opening up the new farm north of the poor farm is building a big house, having bought lumber of Paul, He is making some big improvements, and will have a i( laa<DdB6me place when settled. Some telegraph builders were here Monday and put up a lino between tho two depots for tho accommodation of the railway companies, Now if they will put in the "Y" tho new year will open with a boom sure enough. Frank Nicoulin says that a trust has ) 'Oen formed among buggy wheel malc- < re, and that in consequence wheels cost twice what they did before, Ho lakes little stock in this talk about t heap prices coming from trusts, Col, Spencer says Sexton lias a new blacksmith shop, and is on deck for a depot as soon as Cylinder, in Palo Alto countyt gets one. Tho commissioners have ordered one there and Sexton is not to be left behind by Cylinder.

Every farmer attending the agricultural society had a vote so no one can complain of what is done this year. There was plenty of enthusiasm and the feeling that the coming fair will be a big one is prevalent. The society is in fine condition. The celebrated McMillan comic opera company is coming in the great comic ppera success, " The Doctor of Alcantara.." This ppera is light, pretty, and w|JJ} catchy music and funny situations, is elegantly costumed and is one of the We now have a copy of tho Morning Sun Herald with Grant Hawkins as editor. In his opening editorial ho says: " Tho Herald Is now on a sound footing and well equipped for all kinds of work, and our whole ambition will be to give the people a paper to which they may point with pride as a representative of their town." Bills are out announcing another big public dance at the court house Friday evening: A big oyster supper and music by Brickey's Italian quadrille band are announced. A big crowd is expected from all parts of the country, and plenty of fun is promised. It will bo a pleasant occasion for everybody, and everybody is invited. A union service was held at tho Congregational church Sunday evening, Presiding Elder Black preaching. His sermon was one of the ablest lately delivered in Algona, and both the manner and matter of it proved Rev. Black a man of ability and cultivation as a public speaker. He has already gained a strong hold with the Algona people and is proving a worthy successor to Rev. Pratt. Two new papers have been added to tho Algona reading room, the Union Signal of Chicago, the national W. C. T. U. temperance-paper, and the Woman's Journal of Boston. Capt. Cooko also makes a contribution of Tho Guardsman. A request has been made that the Scientific American be added to the list, and in time the Popular Science Monthly. No doubt, this request will bo granted. Not long ago a man named F. Ingersoll camo to Algona with some horses and mortgaged one to one of our local loan agents. Lust week a man named Haskell arrived with a mortgage on the stock given in Kansas. He proceeded to soi/o the horses and our local man also proceeded. Sheriff Stephens holds th"e> animals for tho Algona man, and the law will now bo appealed to to find i>iit who gets the security. T. M. Clarke of Fenton is an enthusiastic dairyman. He says he is going to havo his cows average 5,000 pounds of milk next season, and that this season milk has averaged 75 cents 100 pounds, besides which he counts his skimmed milk worth 25 cents 100 pounds for hogs. That will make his cows bring §50 besides their calves. But Uncle Clarke don't take any stock in corn raising being cheap. Ho says Gov, Boies' figures are all right, H. K. .Hess came up from Des Moines ! ast week to attend fitting up his hotel. He says he is making progress with his ^ — ..-..^ j*» V O * »•"-"•' «T J.

If his storage battery is what ho claims it will take tho place of all tho present electric systems and make electricity a convenient thing everywhere. It was currently reported that tho board had decided not to open tho court room to tho public, but it proved unfounded. They raise the rental from $4 to $7. Many desired them to resolve that the hall would bo closed after Jan. 1, '02, as that would compel Algona to secure a public hall. Wo are already behind our neighbors in this respect, but no one feels like beginning a good hall unless the court room is to be closed. The county makes nothing by renting tho hall, and wo believe they would do everybody 'a favor by closing it. A. ,T. Robison went to Des Moines Monday on a visit. He sees the state capital for the first time. Miss Guild, who has been visiting Mrs. A. White for the past week, has returned to her home in Ft. Dodge. Sheriff Stephens, who was assistant marshal at the last state fair, went to Des Moines yesterday to attend the annual directors' meeting. Mrs. H. H. Field of Chicago is visiting Mrs. Geo. E. Clarke. Mr. Field will be here during tho week. He is assistant general solicitor of the Milwaukee road. W. W. Johnson was down from Minneapolis and s])ont Sunday in Algona. He reports business fairly active in his line, and Minneapolis doing considerable building. Eight or ten young men went from Alg-ona to Emmetsburg last evening to witness a five mile foot race hold there. The race was declared a tie on account of a foul, but the timo was better than thirty-two minutes. Mrs. C. L. Lund's mother, who has been visiting her, has returned to Chicago, and her aunt is now here for a short time. Mrs. Lund is unwell and has not recovered from the shock caused by the loss of her daughter. S. S. Sessions and J. W. Wadsworth started for DOS Moines Monday to attend the annual directors' meeting of the state agricultural society. Mr. Sessions is director and Mr. Wadsworth acted ns assistant superintendent of the sheep department at the last slate fair. Chas, Grimm cuine from Clear Lake Monday morning and went with John G. Smith to Des Moines to attend the annual meeting of the state sportsmen's association directors. Mr, Grimm is director and Mr. Smith president. The time and place of the next state shoot will be decided at this meeting. Jus. Taylor was in Des Moines last week as democratic cpmmitteeman from tho tenth, to attend the state meeting of the central committee. He reports that the state democracy are buoyant, and expect great things in the fall. He heard Henry Watterson lecture while there, and speaks very highly of the great Kentucky-editor, C, M. Doxsee is home from Des Moineb where ho attended the meeting of the agricultural college authorities. He reports that out of much discussion as to tho future of the college a good plan has been adopted, and that the school is bound to prosper. Among its graduates here are Mrs. Kate Starr, W. W. Wheeler, C. M. Doxsee, the Misses Mann, and others. The school will pay more attention to agriculture, but will maintain its literary departments. county as the republican candidate for' governor, This is a most excellent suggestion. Senator Chubb is flNt, last, and always a farmer. A farmer who farms. A farmer who knows by actual experience what the average farmer oh the Iowa prairies enjoys, endures, and suffers. He is unalterably a matt of the people* and his ability and public expe' rience are ample. He would make a winning face and a strong governor.'' The Minneapolis Journal, under a big headline, "Chubb for Governor: He will probably be Mr. Boies' opponent in Iowa," has the following special from Mason City: "Gov. Boies wilt hot have it all his own way in securing a renomination at the hands of the democrats. Senator Chubb, who has been severely censuring the governor for his reform speech in New York, is announced as a candidate, and will no doubt have the farmer element of the west part of tho state solid for him. He has always been a farmer and has made his money and political reputation as such. He went to the front during the war and spent nearly five years in the defense of his country." A Fatal Mistake. Physicians make no more fatal mistake than when they Inform piitlents that nervous heart troubles come from the stomach and are of little consequence. Dr. Franklin Miles, the noted'Indl- nna specialist, has proved the contrary In his new book on " Heart Disease," which maybe had fren at F. W. ningley'g who guarantees and recommends Dr. Biles' unequaled New Heart Cure, which lias the largest sale of any heart remedy in the world. It cures nervous and organic heart disease, short breath, fluttering, pain or tenderness In tho side, arm or shoulder, Irregular pulse, fainting, smothering, dropsy, etc. Ills Restorative Nervine cures headache, fits, etc. Z * How to Succeed. This Is the great problem of life which few satisfactorily solve. Some fall because, of poor health, others want of luck, but the majority from deficient grit—want of nerve. They are nervous, Irresolute, changeable, easily get the blues and " take spirits down to keep the spirits up," thus wasting mrney, time, opportunity and nerve force. There Is nothing like the Restorative Nervine, discovered by the great sped*, list, Dr. Miles, to cure all nervous diseases, as headache, the blues, nervous prostration, sleeplessness, neuralgia, St. Vltus dance, ills, and hysteria, Trial bottles and fine book of testimonials free at F.

WARNER'S OLD STAND, WEST OF COURT HOUSE, ALGONA. IOWA. Uemarkable Rescue. Mrs. Michael Curtain, Plalnfleld, 111., makes the statement thnt she citught cold, which settled on her lungs; she was treated for a month by her family physician, but grew worse. He told her she was a hopeless victim of consumption and that no medicine could cure her. Her druggist suggested Dr. King's New Discovery for Consumption; she bought a bottle, and to her delight found herself benefltted from first dose. She continued Its use, and after taking ten bottles found herself sound nnd well, now does her own housework and is as well as she ever was.

Tlmmons, postmaster of Idavllle, Ind., writes: "Electric Bitters has done more for me than all other medicines combined for that bad feeling arising from kidney and liver trouble." John Leslie, farmer and stockman of same place, says: " Find Electric Bitters to be the best kidney and liver medicine; It made me feel like a new man." J. W. Gardner, hardware merchant, same town, says: " Electric Bitters H just the thing for a man who Is all run down and don't care whether be lives or dies." He found new strength, good appetite, and felt Just like tie had a new lease on life. Only 60o a bottle at Dr. Shcetz 1 . 2 OHUBB TOE GOVEBNOR. A big hog shipment was made Sunday. B. M, Gardner brought down ISO houd, and A. Hough shipped enough more to mjvko a special train of seyeu car loads. Mr. Gardner and Forrest Bice went in and spent a couple of days in the city. Mr. Gardner's hogs wore a splendid lot, one weighing 580 pounds and one 480. Tho average on 125 would have been near 400 pounds. He expected to get $3.60 or $8.75 in Chicago, and at that rate said he could get 85 cents a bushel for all the corn he had fed. He lias made hog raising a specialty and has the pigs growing to ship another lot next year. He has confidence that the farmer who tends to business is uot losing money. ,., A tew weeks ago the Republican said that it did not have a subscriber on its list at less than $1.50 a year, that if its agent had taken any at less it was without authority, uad that he had accounted to them for the full $1.60, 1'ross Comments oil Our Ex-Senator As n Candidate, Tho State Register says editorially: A Huraboldt democrat has written a letter to tho Sioux City Journal suggesting a republican candidate for governor. It is a novel nomination for Senator Chubb of Algona, a republican and a practical farmer, and is called out by the disgust that an honest democrat feels for the governor's New York spooc)]. This Humboldt democrat says: " The extravagant statements made regarding the farmers by Gov. Boies in his speech at the democratic banquet in New York has called forth from indignant farmers throughout the state protests against and mathematical refutation of his demagogical assertions." Speaking- of Senator Chubb the letter says: "I am personally acquainted with Senator Chubb and know his worth, but his reputation is as wide as tho state. In the senate ho was regarded as one of tho strong, practical men. I am writing this without the knowledge or consent of Mr. Chubb, and no one will be so greatly surprised as himself at the suggestion contained in this article, Furthermore I am a democrat but not a demagogue, and the class of democrats to which I belong would much prefer to see a republican of Senator Ghubb's standing in the executive chair than a pretended democrat whose policy is shaped by mercenaries, and whose utterances bring the party into contempt." The Sioux City Journal, in referring to the Humboldt communication, says: " In a communication in another column of the Journal this morning a democrat who has a very extensive acquaintance among Iowa democrats sug- - x - ox-Senator Chubb of KOB.SWW Bucklcn's Arnica Salve.
