Presiding Elder Black says the Methodists are building a church at Renwick. Also that tho district conference will be held at Alden June 9-11. Rev. Whitfleld is on the programme. A checker contest is arranged between A. H. Durant and 'Squire Thompson of 30 games to be begun soon. We shall soon know who is champion, and then Dan Long will have it out with him. All dance lovers will enjoy the an- "nouncement that the Marshalltown or- s?»chestra will be here Saturday evening. The canvas will be down and one of the finest parties ever given in Algona is on the tapis, One of the finest horses owned in the county is that brought in by 1. Ames and Clark Coffen, It cost igl,800, net cash, and is a handsome animal. Such horses are what will make Kossuth rich in a few years. Rev. Edgar Stephens of Cerro Gordo county was in town Monday. He was a pioneer farmer in Wesley, and was noted for his big orchard years ago. But he went into the ministi-y and is meeting with success. No definite acton on the proposed Baptist church was taken at the business meeting, Monday, M. B. Chapin, Geo, Sirapkins, T. H. Conner, S. S. Rist and M, C. Bailey were chosen as trustees, and Sidney Rist clerk. E, W. Donovan came down from Fenton last week for evergreens. He has already a fine grove but he says he wants every variety. He is making a veritable garden on his farm, and finds his profit in the increased enjoyment he gets. The butcher in H. J. Edems' shop, Mr, Shafer, received a telegram Monday to the effect that his brother, a brakeman on the Burlington road, had been killed at Williams below Webster City. He took the freight south Monday night. George Turner came in with a beaming smile last Wednesday morning after we had gone to press, with a news item. We didn't find out then what it was, but have learned since that it was a fine boy at his home. The youngster is doing well. Cheevev Hudson goes back to surveying again, and orders his papeveent to Marion, whore he will work with A. H.

There will be a union meeting of the young people societies of the different churches at the Baptist church nexl Monday evening. A free lecture will be delivered by Rev. F. M. Smith on "The Story of the Huguenots." A general invitation is extended. A. J. Robison is now a full-fledgec druggist. His examination proved successful at Oskaloosa, and ho has received his documents which permit him to practice pharmacy. It is reported that he will soon start a drug store ol his own, but has no location chosen yet. No new developments indicate that the young man who fell 70 foot from the Reed windmill will not recover. Hi escape is most remarkable in any event, and is almost miraculous in view of the fact that he would have struck rock had he fallen a foot either way from where he did. Wo have received a Passadena paper giving a full account of President Harrison's magnificent reception. At tho banquet we notice that T. Barley sat at one table among tho favored guests. We will guarantee our genial cx-Algonian helped to receive tho president royally. Win. Laird tried to keep it secret, but it has leaked ^out, and congratulations must come in. He was married Saturday evening by Rev. Whitflold to an estimable daughter of Milo Smith of Livermore, and now ranks with the other Benedicts. THE UPPEK DES MOINES joins with many others in well wishes, The ladies of the W. C. T. U. and reading room association will hold their regular meeting at the reading room on Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock. The president desire_s to see a large attendance of tho ladies as there is business of vital importance to tho people of this place to be presented. Gentlemen are also invited. A telegram came Monday to E. N. Weaver that D. L. Newton, depot agent xt Whittemore a year ago, had shot himself. Mr. Newton was husbnnd of Mr. Weaver's daughter, May, and Mrs. Weaver took the first train. They were living at Orchid, Neb., and all their letters had indicated that they were prospering 1 finely. Dodge street is " in it" this spring. John Goeders is buildimg two fronts at the rear of his store in one of which he will put a grocery store, and in the other P. L. Slagle will move his harness shop. The work is going on now uid the building will soon be done. There is no better location in town and e welcome our neighboi's, J. B. .Tones' brother-in-law, who visited him last fall, writes that the figures he secured hero as to prices, products, etc., were used on every stump in western Canada during the campaign, and contributed largely to the success of the conservatives. He was opposed ;o the unrestricted admission of American £09rl[;, {"id rejoices in the defeat of iho liberals. The motto of Mr. Miller, who works n the Wilson mill, fell on the crossing ieur the Boardman creamery last week and. Yiearly broke her arm. She is an W lady, over 00, and one plank in the rossing was broken. It is not thought any serious injury will result, but all iccidents are dangerous to people of ;hat age. The crossings should not be allowed to be defective. The Methodist Foreign Missionary society of this district meets in Algona iomorrow. Miss Cushman, a missionary from China, speaks tomorrow even- .ng. Friday will bo filled with various exercises, among them a paper by Mrs. ardner Cowles in the afternoon. This s an important meeting of the Methodist society, and all will be interested in attending the exercises. Nelson Emerson brought the prize ion's egg into this office Monday. We urefully measured its circumference and it went eight and a quarter inches one way by six and seven-eighths inches the other. Mr. Emerson is uncle of Milton Warner, and farms the Warner farm. He feels proud of the ion that produced the egg and of tho iounty that produces such hens. A Whittemore writer says: The suicide of D. L. Newton, formerly Chicago Milwaukee & St. Paul agent here, which occurred at Orchid, Neb., was a sad surprise to his many friends here. As agent.he was popular and worked "or the good of the company and those with whom ho dealt. He was always 'oremost in any plan for public improvement, and like many others his lull worth was not appreciated until he lad gone from among us. The advertisement of H. A. Sessions' marble business appears in this issue and calls attention to the best place to secure headstones and monuments. He lias done a big business and his work speaks for itself in this section. This spring ho has better facilities than ever for making prices, .and is doing work in competition with big yards. Last season he put in 27 .monuments in Wisconsin, and now_ has the contract for putting several in .Illinois, THE UPPER DffiS MOINES office is headquarters for big eggs this week. Uncle Sessions came in with one yesterday which measures 8i by 6i inches, and he tells a story which we commend to hen fanciers. He says this is the twentieth egg the ••same hen has laid all of the same size. -She is now restinj from her labors and is hatching a brooi of chickens. Whether the egg tariff has had anything to do with this record Mr. Sessions does not state, but it is to be presumed that shutting out cheap Canadian competition has encouraged our Kossuth hen to do her best. The spacious home of Mr. and Mrs. Ambrose A. Call was filled with over a hundred high school students, teachers, and citizens last Wednesday evening in honor of our victorious contestant at Monticello. Elegant refreshments were served during tho evening and besides congratulating Miss Wallace the company was entertained with several amusing diversions, among them several recitations by Prof. Carter. Everybody felt a pardonable pride in Miss Wallace's success, and also in the honor which .has come to the Algona schools and teachers through it. Dr. and Mrs. -'Hudson were pleasantly surprised last Wednesday. The day marked the 45th anniversary of their wedding, - and some thirty of the old sottlei'B.iuafl neighbors observed .it by coming in while they were absent and taking possession of their home. Then they were sent for, and when they came R. J. Hunt greeted them for tho com pany and presented a handsome desk, Dr. Hudson responded in a feeling man ner, and tho hours of visit were pleasantly spent. The doctor nnd his wife are among tho early comers in Kossuth and many hearty good wishes go witl them as they roach these rare anniversaries of long and well-spent lives. Tho second literary entertainment o the reading room was given Fridaj evening. The chief feature was B. F. Reed's speech on the legal rights o women. Ho said that the Roman civi' law gave women individual rights, while the English common law gave thorn rights through the husband. While in Rome society became demoralized, England has greatly improved women and society. From this ho inferred that too great legal rights foi women would not be a good thing. Except on temperance he would not favor female suffrage. Other exercises and music comploted tho programme, and among them were an essay by Mrs. Conner, a recitation by Miss Hinchon, a song by Mrs. Vesper, a duett by Misses Bessie Rist and Maude Cowan. A good audience was present in spite of tho bad night. A CAR of brim just received at W. F. Carter's.

Coughing I S Nature's effort to expel foreign substances from tho bronchial passages. Frequently, this causes inflammation and the need of an anodyne. No other expectorant or anodyne is equal to Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, It assists Nature in ejecting the mucus, allays irritation, induces repose, and is tlie most popular of all cough cures, " Of tho many preparations before tho public for the cure of cplils, coughs, bronchitis, and kindred diseases, there is none, within the range of ray experience, so reliable as Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. For years I was subject to colds, followed by terrible coughs. About four years ago, whcui HO alllicted, I was advised to try A.vur's Cherry 1'ectoral and to lay all other remedies aside. I dill BO, and within a week was well of my cold and cough. Since then I havo always kept this preparation in tho house, and feel comparatively secure." — Mrs. L. TJ. Drown, Denmark, Miss, "A few years ago T took a severe cold which affected my lungs. I had a terrible cough, ami passed night after night without sleep. The doctors gave, me up. I tried Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, which relieved my lungs, induced sleep, and afforded tho rest necessary for tho recovery of my strength.
