A general invitation is given to everyone. Why not come out and enjoy them, and encourage the ladies in their praiseworthy 'efforts. While east, Geo. E. Clarke bought a couple of Shetland ponies, which will arrive in town this week. One of them is for his little girls, and W. F. Carter gets the other for his children. They are finely bred and are both with foal, so Algona will soon have a good supply of Shetland stock to add to its other blooded animals. Court adjourned last week before the cases were all tried. The attorneys after nearly three weeks' steady work were anxious to continue their cases till the next term, which comes March 12. Judge Carr went home on the Thursday evening train.

We received notice last week too late ,o mention of the marriage of M. W. Terguson of Plum Creek and Miss Anna Ih-eesinan of Ramsay, Rev, Shaver' per- formipg the ceremony, Many elegant presents were received and the young jouple begin life with bright prospects. They are both worthy young people :rom well known and highly respected families, and they have the best wishes of a host of friends. In bis article on corn raising' in this issue, Senator Chubb says that more than once they have had 70 bushels of corn to the acre pn untnanured land on their farm across the river. If the trutyh were known there are plenty of other farmers who could tell the same experience, There are plenty of them, too, who have used their corn for pork, butter, beef, etc., and made thefr 40 and 50 cents a bushel every year. Lotts Creek held two township meetings, one at the Archer school house and one at the Walker school house; and for awhile W'looked as though the civil authorities would act like an old time caucus.. The school meeting called the town together and by vote the meeting at the ^Archer school bouse was declared official and its .minutes ordered inserj»d>in the record boo>. Peace again' smiles on the. western border. Messrs, Conn^^d Cow*^ were at Clarionh\s$ we«(lc ftn,d,ma,de their bid on the new (Sourt home a the barrel of granulated sugar at five cents a pound, and W. F. Carter says at re- tall they will sell 19 pounds for a dollar. The other grades of sugar will be correspondingly cheaper, some "going as' low as 25 pounds for a dollar. All this change begins April-1. which is ordinarily a suspicious day, but there is no April fool joke about sugar prices. This 'is the most meritorious thing the McKinley bill has brought to the people. A,«Couple of years ago a, man named church hired a team'at Lacy's to go up tin Fenton. On his return a horse died, and Lady*' sued him for the cost. Church left-the matter with a lawyer who shortly after moved away and forgot about it, and so judgment was taken by default by W. B. Quarton, who represented Mr. Lacy. Chureh returned at the last term of court and tried to get tbe case re-opened for trial. It was continued till this term, and Judge Carr decided that no new trial could be. had, as the default was through Church's negligence, that is acting through his attorney. The'judgment was for $160,' which Church will have to pay if he does not appeal.' 'T. H. Conner was appointed some time ago by the supervisors to view the proposed road from town directly to the Blackford bridge. Last week with a number of citizens he went over th^' route, which is , an extension of McGregor street, and will report to th,e auditor sometime this week. If his report is favorable the property owners will be invited to send in their damages, and commissioners will then appraise them and the board will take final action. We understand that the matter of opening the street will i be taken up by the city council at its meeting this week, and the town will decide what it will do. " There is no doubt that the traveling public demands some better approach from the west than it now has, and' that some new road must be made. Tbe present hill being both crooked and steep makes travel danger- cm- and difficult in any but the best of weather. , > ' ' PEBSONAL MOVEMENTS. C, M.
