It is said that Sheriff iGrtflmm is in a {fair way to receive substantial compen nation for his arrest of Sands;. A re •ward of something like $3,'000 was offered for Sands' arrest, and a portion .of this may come to our lucky sheriff •The ladies of the Congregational iChurch desire to express t'heir_ thanks toial! those who so kindly assisted in 'making the world's fair a .success, especially remembering the gentlemen •who composed the national republican •convention. "What Shall We Do with Our Boys?' is a question that is being more or less .discussed in certain portions of rthis •town. \We can tell you what we are going to.flo with some of them that cxwne foolingi&round this office if they don't behave ailittle better. "Of aliahe bad roads I have seen this spring," said a man last Saturday, " the worst is that passing the old Blanohard place, north of Algooa, Four good fcorses can pull you through there, but you mustn't expect them to do more; they can't do it." The city hasrecieved- three carloads of water mains — ienough to lay a distance of about nine btacks. 'The connections and hydrant casings have been here for some time. If tlie weather ever gets settled the laying of mains will begin, but upon what streets we believe it is not yet determined. A couple of men, who have been here about two weeks, yesterday shipped <over the Northwestern road fourteen •carloads of steers— about 300 head— to 'Montana. The steers were all bought in this vicinity. They are two and three-year-olds, and are toeing taken to Montana for feeders, The ladies who were supporting Mrs J. Ellen Foster for the presidency - m Friday's convention think those home men who put up that telegram on them are "just as mean as they can be. It was a little rough, for a fact; but when the ladies go into politics they must expect some hard raps now and then. A horned toad has been on exhibition : at Heise's tor sorial rooms. It was sent Wm from California by M, L. Clarke and came all the way by mail in a pa per box. As illustrating the kind o reptiles they raise out there it is an in teresting specimen; otherwise we don' take much stock in the ugly-looking thing. The announcement is made tha Langdon & Hudson have made lease with Mr. Ferguson for his new store building that will be put up soon on State state, and will move their gro eery stock there as soon as it is ready for occupancy. Jas. Taylor will occupy the adjoining room, being put up by Mr Hoxie. Algona will have another hardwar store in the near future, to be locate in one of A. D. Clarke's rooms on Stat Street.

Of the farmers who were in town iaturday—the number was ntft large— everal were asked with reference to he growing grain, and many said that, otwithstanding the continued wet weather, small grain was up and look- ng well, and they had no feisrs regard- ng the outcome.

One telegram was (prepared aib the convention Friday -eyening w4iicli never came to light It was arraiEg-eiil that one of the delegates was to naif nate David B. Henderson for the presidency, and so the plan '.was to hawe a selegram handed up to the chairm&an and read to the couvenrfiion just aftei ihe nominating spoech Avas made, .-announcing that David B. Henderson was dead. It would have toeon a pretty rough joke, but it was net played because David B. was not put in nominar ior.. When Minnesota was called for its vote Friday evening Ole Johnson Ryan of that state said: " Master Shairman, Mansota make wholebeesnessforKnute kelson." Soon after that he moved to make Nelson's nomination unanimous, egatdless of the fact that none of the other delegates had voted for him. The cthairman waited for a» .-second to ;he motion, and finally Ole seconded It limsell Parliamentary law-out no figure with Ole; he was going to see his man nominated, even though it were the last act of his life, Algona is soon to have a Impound Howitzer* It is a brass piece, and will DO sent here to the Jas. C. Taylor post. The way it comes about is in this wise: The government has many of these pieces of ordnance on hand. They can- iot be sold, it seems, though why this :s so we have not learned. So by order of the navy department they may be .oaned to grand army posts, to be re- jurned whenever called for by the government. In all probability it will aever be called for, and in that event we shall always have on hand a field piece for the various uses to which an article of the kind can be put. J. W. Wadsworth is arranging to send his three-year-old Algona Boy to Des Moines about the first of June, where he will be put into active training and developed to see what there is in him in the way of speed. Wm, Pettibone of Port Dodge will have the responsible charge of him. The colt is a son of Athlete, is the first standard- bred colt foaled in Kossuth county, and ives promise of doing some good work, jle has already trotted in better than three minutes, and his breeding being known to be first class, there is reason to believe he will make a good mark before he is five years old. Mr. Wadsworth has already been offered $600 for him. Speaking of the Sands family in _ general way, a man who knows what he is talking about said recently thai they were a hard lot. The old Sands farm is a couple of miles south of Ban croft. Freight trains stop at the watei tank this side of Bancroft, and when the Northwestern road was first built through this county Sam. Sands anc his boys used to board coal trains a- night at the tank and throw off a lot of coal, and then come down with a wagon the next day and take it home. They were never known to buy a pound of coal while they lived there. So it isn't strange after all, with that sort of home training, that Paul Sands has eventual aid he could always make good money when he was sure of $3.50 for his hogs. The lateness of the spring 'and the .rouble experienced in getting small frain into the ground would result in lariy farmers putting in much of their fround to corn. This would mean more orn and less small grain the coming alL but farmers would more than get heir money back by feeding more hogs, and consequently getting bigger re- urns in, the long run. This looks reasonable, to say the least-ol it We had the pleasure last Friday of nspecting what will be, When finished, one of the finest pieces of furniture in ihe county. It is hone less than a chi^ la closet, which Ernest Laage is mak- ngfor Mr. Lund. The piece stands seven feet high, is 4i feet wide, and 14 nches deep. The material is cherry, ihe front carved and paneled in exquis- te style, and on the top will be a carved piece known as a rokokkoorn- ament. It will be finished in oil. Mr. liaage has been putting in some of his spare time during the dull season on this job. The carving is all his own, and the job when completed will be not mly an ornament in Mr, Lund's house- lold, but will !be a rare specimen of Mr. Laage's skill and handiwork. "Nancy Hawks" is a character more or less well known in this section. Wo do not know what town toas the ques- ionable honor of claiming her asa resident, but she "bails from some point south of here. Monday evening she was at the Northwestern iflepot. In the waiting room <was also"a lady who was waiting to be transferred to the other road. Th clatter got up ;»nd went out on the platform. This Deemed to be fust what Nancy was waiting for, be- 3auso no sooner had she stepped out than Nancy (opened and «went through her valise, 'securing $4.88, nearly all the money tk« lady hud. Marshal Dailey too'k Saincy in, anfl.-at the close of a short interview with fhim and the county attorney, the motiey was restored to its lewner. Themame of the lady was notilearned. Lew. Hacknmn and Leon Bush were taken to Foitffiodge by aifle'puty United States marshal last week. They explained thomaitter by saying that when Bush bought 'izsto the business some weeks ago the^y failed to have the government licemse transferred. They aver that they are not and have not been selliaag 'intoxicating 'liquors, but that a government license 'is necessary in order to rsoll what : 16 known as "health restorer." On Wednesday Marshal Dailey and ""Bug" Wilson were subpoana&fi. and wen ttoSPort Dodge as witnesses. Again on Fi-jflay "Doc." Leatherm-ati :and Frank 'iLongley accompanied a ifieputy marshal to the city of gypsum. It seems <noeasy matter to find oat what all these 'trips are for. The interested parties . are reticent when interviewed, butstweet rumor darkly hints «,t. boot-legging. Those who know theonost are inelinoicl to tell the least training, "«*« * «»' ly landed in limbo. Sometimes bles&ings come People are rarely given to praising public officials, Qiowever well ifcey perform their work. But we want to go on record as saying that our -/presenl tstreet commiss'ianer has done .exceedingly good worik during the loqg and anpleasant muMy season. • We neve" before had the eiross walks so well cared for, and pedestrians should pat the credit where it belongs. The .commissioner says if he <eould have tlie road taxes paid in money, so he couM hire the > work done by men who would fliave to work or be discharged, he cow'l'S. get twice the service «nt of it that is inow gotten, or than can possibly be had under tSie present law. And he is entirely rigiht about it. No _system of " working out" road taxes will ever amount to a hSll of beans, and the sooner ..we recognize this fact the sooner we will have good streets, good highways 'an general, and our money's worth ail around. ___ Straw Hats.

W DIStBtOT Tho Session Began Monday Afternoon— A Fairly Largo Docket to Dispose of. Judge Carr arrived Monday forenoon and opened court. There is a docket of fair proportions to be disposed of, 3ut it is by no means likely that it can cleared at the present term. The work is now fairly under way. The udge presides with his usual dignity, ;he lawyers are good-natured, and everything is running smoothly. Monday was occupied in the disposal of equity cases. The first jury trial came on yesterday, and was one in which D. R. Eraser sues Dr. McCoy for work done in boring a well. The case occupied yesterday afternoon, and will be through with today. The libel case of Dr. Hathaway against the Republican is set for tomorrow morning, and, an it is understood all the parties are ready, the case will probably be tried atthis term. The term of court is likely to last a couple of weeks if the judge can spare so much time. COURT NOTES. This is not the term for the grand jury, and boot-leggers have not this danger to fear. Up to last evening only the county bar was represented at court. Attorneys from abroad will bo in attendance today.

Jacpli Winkoi makes a good bailiff, and is big enougli to bring a witness without a 'subpoena, Judge Carr took a practical view oi the situation, and yesterday morning excused those farmers 'on the 3 m 'y whc said they 'coulkl do something toward putting in HJheir grain. .Several announced that they could . do werk in the line of seeditig if they .were 'excused, and so were .allowed to go home. Wihcn the jurors were ical'led f for excuses S. K. Jones told the 'judge 'that he was the farmer's best friend; 'the Wigwam was wide open and lie was 'tieecleC thereto sell !t!he machinery with -.which to 4o aJl sorts of farming, .and iso'be thought he 'ought to get «ff. 'The judge isaniled :and said lie -dad n't quite look:at it in that way. E£e thought Mr. ,1'oaes had belter stay and help administer justice at this term, on the theory, doubtless, that his (two • a <Jay would gwe him moro.>monoy,with •which to •" pay the freight.'"

Blaize, an extensive real estate dealer in Des Moines, Iowa, narrowly escaped one of the severest attacks of pneumonia while in the northern part of that state during a recent blizzard, says the Saturday Review. Mr. Blaize had occasion to drive several miles during the storm and was so thoroughly chilled that he was unable to get warm, and inside of an hour after his return he was threatened with a severe case of pneumonia or lung fever, Mr. Blaize sent to the nearest drug store and got a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, of which he had often heard, and took a number of large doses. He says the effect was wonderful and that in a short time he was breathing quite easily, He kept on taking the medicine and the next day was able to come to Des Moines.
