THE OITt, John GffOve has added a new barn to his residence property, There will be a meeting of the St. R. d., No. 208, Thursday evening, Jan. 29, lit Vi80. An Ifafant child of Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Kolto died on Sunday last. The funeral occurred yesterday. Special meeting's will begin tho first Week in March at the Congregational Church, conducted by tho evangelist, H, G. Smead. Miss Mamie Lantry was a helper Jn the postofflcd last week. She seems to have lost nono of her skill in handling trade Sum's packages, § Edwin Blackford has boon confined to his home for a few daye with a sort Of general debility. Ho is bettor now and is getting out some. Wo have a, little snow storm on hand today, but there is no thought that it will long continue. Less than two inches of snow have fallen so far. Supervisor Peters and W. H. Nycum havo finished their work of'settling with tho treasurer and auditor. Of course tho county finances are all right. Those who were so rash as to predict a snow storm as a result of last Thursday's threatening weather must have forgotten that this is a winter resort. C. Bickard of Cresco township has just started for water. This time he will go down until he gets plenty of it, if the Chinese do not servo an induction on him. numerous good stock horses ty, having last week made a purchase of a Clydesdale stallion from Jake Hedi ington, at Decorah. The hew horse goes by the name of "Glory.** He is only three years old, but weighs 1460 pounds, and will easily ruti up. to 1600 in time. He is a full-blood Clyde, black as coal, and is a fine lookihg animal, Prof. Geo E. Reed, formerly of our normal school, writes from Boise City, Idaho, inclosing another year's subscrip* tion to THE UPPER DES MOINES, and says in his letter: "We look for the paper each week and read it with zest. I am glad to see that the school is going on with a good attendance and hope it may continue to prosper. We are enjoying life in a tent. It is a healthy life to say tho least. Mrs. Reed says I am getting fat." Notice of incoration of the Whltto- moro Co-operative Creamery company appears in this issuo. The men who are interested are all good ones, and there is no reason why they should not succeed with their enterprise. Mr. S. W. McKeo, who is organizing arid starting these companies, is making a splendid success of the work. A meeting of tho farmers of Garfiold township is called to be held at West Bend next Saturday, and a full attendance is desired. A Now Remington type writer adorns tho county clerk's office, and Glen Brunson will become its manipulator. He has begun tho study of short-hand with Charlie Cohonoer, and wo doubt not will soon become an expert in this work. By the late action of tho supervisors in raising the clerk's salary to a respectable figure, the office is now worth having, at least, and it is possible to keep help enough to properly accommodate the public who have business there. ft The dance last Friday evening went off nicely, there being 68 couples in attendance. These parties under Alex. Dorweiler's management are becoming quite popular. A. W. Moffatt is out again after a few days of sickness. Appearances wouUJ indicate that close confinement doesn't agree with him any bettor than with other people. The ice harvest is under full headway. The creameries and Peter Winkel are putting in largo quantities, the quality of which seems to be good. It is about 22 inches thick. Geo. E. Boyle has a card in this issuo that calls attention to the fact that he is ready and willing to cry sales for a moderate consideration. George is a liUstler, and will do you a good job. All ladies who are interested in the reading room are requested to attend the regular meeting Friday, Jan. 30, at 8 o'clock p. m, Miss Reeves and Mrs. James Patterson will furnish tho pro- gramme. -^JBessie, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. H. Clarke, is having a run of lung fever, and while she is a very sick child, it is thought she will recover. There is more or less lung and throat trouble this winter. Messrs. Conner and Cowan are figuring on the contract for the now court bouse to be built in Wright county. TJiey are competent men, and if they |T6t the job a good piece of work will bo fShe result.

The dispatches said that Dallas B. Avey bad been granted a pension, and pfren he was interviewed on tho subject le said it was so, and that he had been [lowed $0 a month, dating from July last.

He is not convinced that railroad company is liable, as it was one of those occurrneces which the company could not have foreseen, and which the exercise of ordinary diligence and care could not have prevented. Tho man Parker, in whose charge the team was that night, is not likely to part with any surplus cash as compensation to Mr. Edwards unless compelled to do so. Our padded contemporary publishes as news an Item in which it says that S. S. Sessions was made superintendent of horses and mules at the state fair. This was clearly intended as a slur on our efficient state fair director, but the fellow who wrote it knew so little of state fair management that he paid Mr. Sessions a compliment instead. Mr. Sessions holds a responsible position as superintendent of privileges, but as a matter of fact tho superintendency of tho department of horses and mules is one much more to be desired, and one which is usually given to some of the older directors. Some fellows make wretched work of trying to be funny. Uncle Sam Benjamin has been doing tho cause of compulsory education a good turn tho past week. Algona, like every other town, had a certain number of boys who did not attend school. Some wore sent by their parents, but so effectually did they work the truant act as to deceive the head of the family; others wore not sent fit all, These are the follows Uncle Sam has been after, and at latest accounts he had them all on the run for the school house at a sprinter's gait. He has used his own methods for converting them to his way of thinking about this matter of school attendance, and his work has been fruitful in tho extreme. It is a good thing, and ought to havo been done long ago. Algona. We knew he would come back in less than a year, and we are glad of it. All will welcome them home. S. D. Drake was in town last Saturday. It was business With Sain,' but he always has time to greet his old friends. Mrs. Drake has been visiting at Lu Verne, and is paying her respects to her Algona friends this week, She is a welcome Visitor. Elmer Slagle went from here to Des Moines, from which point he is running as helper in the railroad mail service until such time as he is assigned to a regular run. His family is here for the present, and will remain until ho knows where his work will bn, and then they will locate. C. A. Schaffter of the Eagle Grove Gazette stopped in Algona Saturday long enough to call on the fraternity. He was on his way home from the editorial association. Mrs. Schaffter accompanied him. He is one of Iowa's experts in the "art preservative," and this office enjoyed 4 his brief call. Geo. C. Call started yesterday noon for Llano, Texas. He goes with the intention of remaining for some months, and perhaps investing in real estate there. Llano is said to be on a big boom, and speculation is at fever heat. If Geo. C. takes a hand he will not get lost in the shuffle. Horace Mann starts soon for Ann Ai-bor, where he will take a special course in mathematics in Michigan university. He will take oil that the college teachers in this branch. His absence leaves tho county without a surveyor, and the board will have his vacancy to fill at its special meeting.

A broad smile of satisfaction spread itself slowly over his glowing features as he stepped toward the cars. It was a hard pull, but he 'had gotten there. He was no doubt mentally congratulating himself upon his success when the voice of a bridge policeman suddenly sang out on the night air with, "This train don't got"— New York Times.

The Virginia City, Mont., Madisouian says: When we llnd a medicine we know to possess genuine merit we consider it a duty, and we take pleasure in telling the public what it is. Such a medicine' we found Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, last winter, when la grippe was prevailing. We are satisfied' that we warded oft several attacks that were threatening by the use of this syrup, and we have since relieved, in a few hours, severe'colds, and in tho course of two or three days entirely broken them up by its use, as have several of our friends to whom we have recommended it. It is all that It is represented to lie by the manufacturers. If you have a cough and want to stop it, Chamberlain's Cough Remedy will do the work. Sold by F. W. Dlngley. Cronp Has Lost Its Terrors. Mr. John H. Culloni, editor of the Garland, Texas, News, writes as follows: "I wish to add my testimonial to the efficacy of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy for croup. Thsit dread monster has lost its terrors for us since -we began using the Remedy. It never fails to give speedy relief in the worst cases of croup, and we always keep a bottle In the house and recommend its use to. our friends whose little ones are so liable to be attacked with croup during the winter months."

There never was anything like that girl's terror ofHhe bell-and-tube arrangement in our flat. The first time a caller came she rushed in to me with eyes like soup plates and gasped 'out: "Harm! Mannl There's somebody a whistling somewhere, and, if you please, I don't know wherel" I explained and encouraged her to put her ear to the tube and get the message. She never did it without first crossing herself; I know she was convinced the whole process was operated from a place considerably south of our lower hall. I urged her the next time she heard the call to go to the tube and call "Yes?" The whistle came; and, my dear, the roar she sent down that tube would have raised the scalp of a Pawnee Indian. I fled downstairs in terror to see what effect it had had, and Mrs. De Nerfs— you know what a shattered condition she is in, just recovering from nervous prostration! — was sitting on the lower step, quite limp and faint, clasping her vinaigrette. "Martha," she said, "even if you didn't want to see nie, why need you fire a gun down the tube?"— Boston Commonwealth.

Slim Jim's Strategy. During a lull in business the dealers in the "Ma'sh market" occasionally get 'together and swap yarns to kill time. The other day a German butcher gave in his experience of a "beat" as follows: "Dere vas a tramp used to hangaroundt de market vot we called 'Slim Jim.' He looked like he vas yust about starved most of do time. He come to my stand und picked up a string of sausages and holdt it up and say, 'How much is dis?' Pefore I could say a vort a lean cur dog jumps up, snatches aboudt dree pounds of sausage, and was off. "De man yelled and say, 'Take off your dog.

In the Massachusetts Reports, if one would take the trouble to look there—or, indeed, whether one looks for it or not— there is one of the coincidences which do so much to keep the theory alive. Therein it is recorded and set forth how one Aquarius Breen was convicted of adulterating milk. It must be evident to any theorist that the name was responsible for his departure from the paths of probity. How could it be expected that a man with the name Aquarius would fail to water his milk? His whole conscience might rebel against the sin, but his destiny was settled when he was christened, and how could he resist it? Had justice been done punishment in this case would have been' meted out, not to Aquarius Breen, but to the parents who by inflicting upon him such a name had made it impossible for him to do otherwise than to water his milk. He was the victim of circumstances over which he had no control whatever.—Boston Courier, * It Didn't Work. A Hallowell husband tried a suicide scare on his wife with ill success. The couple had quarreled, and the husband, taking a bottle of red ink, strewed part on the floor and daubed' the remainder on his throat. Then he laid down on the bed, feigning death. The wife came into the room, saw her busband and at once comprehended the trick. "My God!" she exclaimed, "he's committed suicide. I must' get the neighbors to help lay him out." She then left the room, and returning & few minutes afterward saw that her husband had moved. "He has turned over; I guess he'll live," she remarked, and he did live.—Cor. Boston Journal Transplanted Britons. Transplanted to new countries, such as Australia, the British race becomes very much more vigorous and of better physique. Yet in Australia, strange to say, the children of British emigrants are more likely to have decayed teeth or to lose them earlier than their parents. Probably the soft foods requiring little mastication with which we are pampered in modern times ia one of the reasons for dental decay.—London Tit-Bits.
