Owner can have them by paying for notice. The city fathers were over inspecting the town well last week. It is now so full of bad air that a light won't burn in it. '<! P. L. Slagle has bought the Lacy harness business. He is a good workman, and will make a success of the business. T. H. Conner was over at Mason City last week and bought 60 car loads of stone for the foundation of the Spencer block he is building. • The Storm Lake 1 Tribune says: " Mrs. Alderman of Algona is visiting her sister, Mrs. Aldrich, who has been quite sick for some time past." Mr. and Mrs. O. C. Fill are rejoicing over the advent of a bouncing girl baby, which arrived Monday. Ol. wears a more than usually pleasant smile. While the others are selling oil cheap, Carter comes out with some fancy figures on flour and groceries. Now is the time to buy in Algona. We are authorized to announce that Algona has the champion checker player of tho county. If anyone cares to contest, a little purse can be raised.

Langdon, who is working with the Milwaukee company, is in Iowa looking over the road bed from Savannah to Council Bluffs. He is a railway expert. Carter's delivery wagon attracted attention yesterday as tho team ran through town with it. It was overturned on Call street but not seriously damaged.

Mr. Wright, the purchaser of the Joslyn farm in Cresco, has taken possession. He comes with a good supply of stock, and will have one of the best farms in the county. The oil war is not local. It is between the two great tank lines, the Standard Oil and Excelsior. It is reported that at Kansas City oil has gone as low as one cent a gallon. Old oil cans that haven't seen oil for five years are making their way to the stores for oil. Everything that will hold is being made use of by the people who are laying in a supply cheap. J. R. Jones has added the hard wood lumber business to his wigwam, J. A. Hamilton will travel and buy and sell. Mr. Jones will take charge of the yard, which is on the wigwam lots. .,«fi- Some one last week paid Jas, Orr in advance for painting. He says he has 1 worked many years but this is his first experience of this kind, and he believes the country is getting prosperous. Frank Chase of Cedar Falls will visit Algona next week some time in the interests of the world's fair exhibition. He is trying to secure an exhibit from every county for the state exhibit. Parties unknown broke the glass in the Northwestern depot windows Saturday night, and got inside, then unlocking the door picknicked as long as they chose and left without doing any further damage. R. Bowman, who has been lying in jail awaiting the action of the grand jury for the fight with Win. Nolan, was released last week on the payment of a fine of $40 and costs. Bowman promptly paid the fine. A subscription was circulalied last week in town towards building tte German Lutheran church in Plum Creek township. The new church is to "be located just north of A. L. Seeley's, and will be built this season. Our driving park men are corresponding with Emmetsburg, and it is possible our races will come July 11-12, and that Emmetsburg will hold races earlier in the week. Letters are also passing with Eagle Grove and Humboldt. The foundation is in for Fred Foster's new honse, and both A. L. and W. E. Naudain are building fine additions to; their homes. Fred will have a very attractive home if the building is as convenient as the foundation promises. The city council re-adopted the ordinance ordering bicycles off the side- yralks, at their meeting last 'week, and the boys aue-doing all the Hiding 'they 1 can before the law is put into effect. / few bicycles might be all right. Bu the council decided they were getting: too thick. Besides legally the bicycle is a road machine and it is a question whether the city would not be liable i" anyone was hurt by one on the walks. Dr. Savers was called to Bancroft on Monday by order from the state Veter inary. He went to Garner yesterday to inspect the hydrophobia cases reportec there. A number of animals arc re ported to have been bitten lately bj mad dogs. The Pocahontas Record says: "Mrs, W. A. McNee WHS voted the'most popular lady in Laurens, at the close of a musical entertainment on April 4, unc was presented with a valuable book.' Our Algona girls take the premium everywhere. Chas. Laage lost two valuable hire dogs three weeks ngo, and advertiset for them in THE UPPER DBS MOINES, offering §5 reward. Last week the dogs came back of their own accord in response to the notice. Who says advertising does not pay? The meetings at the Congregational church are drawing full houses. Sunday evening the Methodists and Baptists joined in a union mooting. Messrs. Smead and Petran will hold meetings every afternoon and evening this week, to which all are invited. Sunday next, April 2G,?isthe seventy- second unnivorsay of the founding ol the first lodge of Odd Follows in this country. The members of the Algona lodge have accepted an invitation from Rev. Bowen to attend morning service at St. Thomas' church. There are 05 more pupils in the main school building now than a year ago. At the depot school there is also an increase. The growth is a real one and shows that our population is not only growing, but very rapidly. There are now 465 pupils in the central building. A goodly delegation of shooters went to Eagle Grove, Monday night, for the tournament there. Sundstrom and Steinburg came from Bancroft, and Messrs. Smith, Durant, Sessions, and West joined them here. Eagle Grove is having a big meeting which closes today. Hogs are up a little in the local market being worth $4.50@4.75. Wheat remains at 80@90c, with none coming in. Corn is 55@00c; oats, 47@ 50c; barley, 60c; and hay worth any price. Mr. Wilson says the prospects for this fall are for averaging high prices. The McMurray insurance case was appealed to the supreme court last week by the company. The result will be watched with interest as several important questions are involved which affect all insurance policies. Mr. McMurray says he will rebuild if he wins his suit. H. J. Edens was elected by Company F last Thursday evening to take the second lieutenancy left vacant by J. O. Reaver. Cigars and congratulations closed the meeting. As first seargent, Mr. Edens has been a hard worker for the company and the promotion was fully deserved. A second edition of the Van Voast- Lovell dispute was heard before Justice Taylor Monday. It seems that Lovell detained a lot of clothing, etc., for debts owed by Van Voast. Mrs. Van Voast brought a replevin suit through Geo. E. Clarke, and secured the the goods. J. C. Raymond appeared for Lovell. A now building promised for the season is a Methodist parsonage. A subscription has been circulated and quite liberally signed, and as soon as §1,000 is secured work will begin. It is the intention is to build near the church, and to put up a convenient house. This is an improvement the church is in serious need of, and should be made at once. Patterson Bros, advertisement this iveek calls attention to itself. For a iumble in oil we commend their prices. Nothing like it has ever been seen in ihe county, or is likely to be again. Now is the time to get oil. When the best grades are nine and a half cents a jallon, and sugar five cents a pound, it .ooks as though Patterson Bros, and McKinley had combined to help us out. S. I. Plumley had a runaway last week that was a runaway. His new ieam got out without their bridles and went first to the Lund farm, and • then around on the Milwaukee track, and then turned north, landing in D. Rice's barn. Sam followed them all the way with another team, and had a half day's chase in the mud. He thinks his new team has lots of gumption and will prove valuable for work, J. C. Blackford had County Surveyor Hutchins out Saturday surveying the hill where the proposed cut is to bo made leading to the Blackford bridge. We have not learned what figures he made. It is Mr. Blackford's idea that the same grade can be secured much cheaper by putting the work : on the old road, than by cutting thrdugh on McGregor street. We understand that the results of Mr. Hutchins' work will be laid before the board. ; The odd fellows of this district hold their annual meeting next week at Emmetsburg on Tuesday, It is estimated that forty members and wives will attend from Algona, while from Wesley and other places in this vicinity a large number will also go. This meeting commemorates the-72nd anniversary of the order in this country and will be observed all over the world. A fine programme of exercises is prepared 'for the Emmetsburg meeting, The case of alleged assault in Lu- Verne referred to last week was '• tried before 'Squire Taylor, Thursday. The complainant was Mrs. Van Voast, whose mari'iage and the charge of bigamy against Van Voast at the time, occasioned, so much public talk. The defendant was a son of Supervisor Lovell, and is the LuVerne landlord, The examination did not disclose facts warranting the justice in holding Lovell and the case was dismissed. Lovell was defended by W. B. Quarton and J. C. Raymond, An effort is being made to have Kossuth make an exhibit at the state fair. Col. Spencer has consented to take his Jersey cattle, some hogs are already promised, and other samples of our stock and produce will be .secured. S. S, stirring in the matter, and he should have no difficulty in getting a ear of the county's best. In hogs, poultry, cattle, horses, and everything else we have individual samples that cannot be beaten. A fine butter exhibit can be made if each creamery will contribute a tub, and nothing would better advertise the county. The city council held a meeting Saturday evening and organized as aboard of health. This gives them much greater authority in ordering manure piles cleared up, etc., and they began by ordering several lots removed within five days. Dr. Sheetz was made the president of the board, and Dr. McCoy was elected physician of the board. The intention is to use every endeavor to keep Alsrona free from disease breeding filth. Superintendent Carey sends us the following notice: The blanks for the report of the secretaries have been sent out. We would like to have them filled out and returned within the next ten days. This cannot be done unless each sub-director files his contract with the president for approval. Please do not retard the work of the superintendent by neglecting this matter. If you have not time to take your contract you can send it to the president by mail and thus facilitate the work of the secretary. This is the season of bad i-oads, but part of the badness is inexcusable. On the two main roads leading west there are almost impassable holes, One is between the Wadsworth farm and the old Cal. Hcckart place. The other is in tho lano just west of the Clock farm. Even in the worst weather those ro;uls should bo passable, for they accommodate nearly all tho travel east and west. But now they are as bad as any unused track on tho prairie. It is time the attention of the public was directed to tho need of good roads, and that at least on main-traveled linos something permanent is done.
