Henry Mattison and Lina Larson are licensed to wed, Regular meeting of Eastern Star chapter Tuesday July 5, 1892. It is rumored we are to have a new barber shop under Galbraith's store. There will be regular services at the Episcopal church next Sunday, tit the usual hour. A new hallway in Ladendorf's restaurant leads to his ice cream rooms. It is a big improvement. Chris. Heise has added to the appearance of the streets by painting his fronts on State and Thorington. There will be a grand bowery dance at Irvington, Monday evening, July 4. Supper and refreshments on the ground. The republican club of Algona will meet Friday evening at the court house for final organization. A. good meeting Is expected. Bod. Jain lost a fine three-year-old mare by lightning the other day. She was standing by the wire fence. He gets $100 insurance. The foundation is about completed for A. D. Clarke's new fronts west of FOBS' shop. The bank cellar as about excavated also. The Hobart creamei-y has been having trouble in getting a well. They have succeeded at last and went 216 feet without striking rook. The regular monthly meeting for July of the Young Ladies' Foreign society will be held at Mrs. Black'a Saturday July 9 instead of July 2. Hugh Smith has sold his paper at Goldfield and will spend the summer in instructing bands. He has several engaged and will be kept busy. The fine improvement J. R. Laird has been making on his home is about completed. It gives him one of the largest residences ki Algona. Letters are advertised for Mrs. E. A. Poster, A. T. Horton, L. A. Operdal, A. W. Sever, Ghas. Stewart, W. P. Setzer, and Aug. Wagner. A. G. Spicer died at Irvington last Friday morning. He was an old man and owned the orchard and vineyard along the Northwestern track. G. W. Cady goes to Wakesha, Wis., this week to join an orchestra at the big summer hotel at those famous springs. He will spend the summer there. Owing to the rain Sunday the excursion to Clear Lake was not very largely patronized at Algoua, and the train was not very full when it arrived from the west. You pay your money Monday and take your choice, W. E. Morrison at Bancroft, B. F. Reed at Burt, J. W. Sullivan at Whittemore, and a dark horse at LuVerne. The republican stats convention is held today at Des Moines, and the congressional convention comes tomorrow at Boone. The delegates from Kossuth have gone to both. The city council met last week and will extend the water mains along State street to Wm. K. Ferguson's. convention, while the democratic quartette comes home, that is part of it is homo, with all the honors of Chicago. They sang in every headquarters in the cm amidst great enthusiasm, have their pictures in the daily papers, nnd were the sensation of the hour. How would it be for one side to challenge the other to a singing contest. The picnic held by the old soldiers, etc., at Call's park Monday will be very enjoyable, and all who stay in town should join in making it a big success. It will furnish a quiet and restful way for celebrating the great anniversary of our independence. Julius Pleth is just back from a visit to Illinois, and he reports the effects of floods there as devastating, There will be absolutely no crops in many sections. He says northern Iowa is away ahead of anything south and east. He saw field after field in Illinois absolutely barren. The social union club will meet Friday night in the Congregational church. There will be a paper by Harvey Ingham, also by Mrs. Leonard of Minneapolis upon "Woman's Choice in Journalism." A recitation by Maud Cowan, and music furnished by Miss Josie McCoy and Miss Lizzie Wallace. From tlxe West Bend Journal we learn that J. C. Blackford has been chosen cashier of the new state bank organized there, and that he will make his home there henceforth. Mr. Black- fore is an experienced banker, and a man in whom implicit trust is placed by all who know him. His success in his new position is assured. H. A. Sessions has been fpr several weeks in and about the towns in counties south of us attending to putting in tomb stones. Ho says the wet weather has done immensely more damage there than in Kossuth, and that corn is put of the question in many places. It is poor consolation to think that someone is worse oil than we are, but it is better than none. THE UPPER DES MOINES published the Australian ballot law some weeks ago as a matter of news, being the first paper to give it to the voters in the county who will cast their ballots by it this fall. This week we make the official publication orderd by the secretary of state. The supplement it is on is well worthy of preservation for future reference. There is a matter in the south part of town which needs the attention of the city fathers. For some reason the street to the fair grounds was not made straight to begin with. But now M. B. Dalton and others have set their walks and trees out where they claim the street line should run, the result being that the actual highway is cut to two rods or less. If they are right the fence on the other side should be ordered moved at once. This road will be the main one to the fair grounds, and very important by spells at least, and the city should see to it that it is not occupied by private fences. The new iron gate posts and gates which are to be added to the cemetery fence have arrived and will soon be in place. The cemetery this spring looks much finer than ever, •which must always be a source of prido. The Call vault has been completed, and the massive Galbraith monument has been erected, both very expensive and handsome additions to tlie grounds, and other improvements have been made. Mr. Fohlin deserves great credit for the work he is doing on the grounds. If a few lot owners would lend their aid in keeping up their part, no handsomer cemetery could be found in any city. One of the pleasantest social events of the spring was the marriage last Wednesday evening at the home of Frank Paine in Portland of Miss Rose L. Paine to Chas. C. Shanor. Rev. Ward performed the ceremony, and nearly 140 guests sat down to the sumptuous wedding supper. Gifts without number were presented to the happy bride, and the occasion was made one of enjoyment to the whole neighborhood in which both families stand so high. Mr. Shanor has a good ent quarters would not 1 permit of anything extensive in this line. The space we have just contracted for will, however, be ample and you may say thatall of the arrangements for the organization and supply of a wholesale department have been made and that upon the completion of the building, about September 1, we shall provide a large and comprehensive stock of all goods suited to the dry goods trade of this section," It is their intention to fit up the first floor of the new storeroom in, the ornate and costly manner as a retail salesroom. It will have a frontage of 75 feet on Riverside avenue. The following from Rev. Dorward will be of interest. He was visiting at South Evanston: " Please inform the public that I expect to be in my July 3, and at the Baptist covenant services July 2. at 2:30 p. m. I hope for a large attendance as I have something of importance to tell the people. By way of correction I wish you would state for the benefit of those who are in doubt as to my politics, that I have always voted the republican ticket and am still a staunch republican in all the fundi- mentals in politics. My great desire is that the morality and intelligence of our great country, may predominate in our political affairs, and that we may make progress in all that tends to greatness in national character. There is a great multitude of people here from the east and from the west; from the north and from the south, interested in the democratic convention. Like the republican convention, they are taking their time in the nomination, and by the time this reaches you I suppose it will be settled, but with thoir division of opinion as to candidates I think the path to the white house is clear for the republican nominee."

Miss Mamie Lantry arrived Monday morning after her year's absence at South Bend, Ind., whore she has been attending school.

Cooke is at Waterloo to attend the wedding of Mr. Ham, Gov. Boies' private secretary and Gov. Boies' neice, Miss Barbour. The wedding is to be one of the social events of the season in the state. They will put in others where the patronage will warrant. The washouts on the Milwaukee kept a lot of strawberries two days over time, and D. T. Smith sold them for 35 cents a crate for express. They were pretty cheap berries. Ostrum Bros, are building a new brick kiln with a capacity of 125,000 brick. The wet weather is delaying their operations but they will burn a lot of them this season. Burt joins the ranks of the celebrating towns Monday. B. F. Reed delivers the oration, the Burt band furnishes music, and races, picnic dinner, etc., are on the programme. Whittemore is on the boom this spring. Two new additions were platted last week, one by J. M, Farley on the south, and one by Ingham & Smith north of the railway track. Sexton is again on the boom, and Col. Spencer wears a pleasant smile, The Milwaukee company have decided to build a depot this spring and establish a regular passenger station, J. J. Ryan arrived from Chicago Monday, and all of Algona's famous quartette have now come in but Charley •Oohenour. The way they spelled his name in Chicago, we fear, has brought on some serious trouble. u Coohenow' is the alias they gave him. B. W.-Haggard was assistant sergeant-at-arms at the Chicago convention, and ,put in part of the time hold- 1 an umbrella over the chairman, IN HONOR OF ST. JOHN. The MneoriB Meet nt Spencer—Algotm Sends a Delegation of J5O Members Oil the Special Train. To the Editor: The North Central Masonic association held their annual celebration at Spencer, Iowa, June 24, St. John's Day, This association was originally composed of 15 lodges in the north part of the state. Some of the objects of this association are sociability, more extended acquaintance among Masons, and more light in Masonry, which is the thing Masons desire. The day was beautiful, not extremely warm but pleasantly cool, making it very enjoyable. The entire seating capacity of the early morning train was crowded when it arrived at Spencer. The people of Spencer did themselves pt-oud, especially the brethren assisted by the ladies of the O. E. S. of Spencer. Decorations were very fine. The meeting was held in the rink now converted into an opera house. Across the street leading from the depot to the city was stretched the name "of the association in beautiful letters. At the entrance to the lodge room an arch was formed, decorated with small banners, the emblems of our country. At the entrance of the opera hall was another arch of evergreens decorated with banners and the ever pleasant words "Welcome." In fact, everywhere the business houses were decorated with banners and other decorations. On nearly every window, as we passed along the street we re some of the emblems of Masonry, such as the crow, spade, pickax, Jacobs ladder, setting maul, square and compass, and letter G, etc. The hall was lighted with electric lights, for though it was daytime the hall had been darkened, and the effect of the electric light mingled with thosemi-darkncss, flowers and a fountain constructed in front of the stage must be seen to bo appreciated, showed that the beautiful young, city of Spencer keeps step with the latest enterprises of the times and never does things by halves. The programme enjoyed at the hall in the forenoon was as follows: Cull to order by the president... .Dr. Jas. Barr Music Clear Lake Band Prayer Rev. Snyder Address of Welcome Mayor Chiimberlaln Response Rev. Sanderson Music Mendelssohn Club Address of Welcome to Masons... A. C. Parker Response Rev. Davidson Music Clear Lake Band Music Mendelssohn Club Grand Secretary T. S..Parvin was to have spoken but on account of washouts was unable to be there. Everyone partook of a bountiful dinner, which the Spencer people know how to provide, and spent the time until two o'clock in visiting and getting acquainted. The meeting was called to order at 2 o'clock p. m. _ and the following pro- gramme carried out: Music Clear Lake Band Prayer Rev. Cochran Reading minutes of last meeting. Election of officers and selecting a place for next meeting. Music Mendelssohn Club Address F. W. Evans, Davenport Music Mendelssohn Club The Clear lake brethren added much to the celebration, for besides sending a large delegation, 'they sent along their fine cornet band of 12 pieces to liven the occasion. The Mendelssohn club of Spencer furnished very fine music and was always ready when called on. The audience greatly appreciated the excellent We Have Removed to the rink on State street with our stock of Buggies, Implements, and carry a full line. Come and see us.

Everybody wants one, the ing Wils son of West Virgina. The rain drenched the convention, pouring through the roof of the hall in torrents. Miss Ollie Wilkinson, who has been a successful teacher in the Algona schools, has the position of teacher in the first primary room in the Emmetsburg schools at an advanced salary. Miss Wilkinson will be found an active and efficient teacher by our neighboring city, Supt, Reed announces the annual teachers' institute this week. He has a good corps of instructors engaged and will make the meeting one of interest as well as of profit to the teachers of the county. A more complete outline of the work proposed will be put in their hands in due season. . Kossuth ought to have a singing campaign this fall. The republicans have a club that is winning laurels, and contains the heroes of the Minneapolis position with the railroad company and is located at Elmore. In his bride he wins a charming life companion, and none but pleasant paths seem to stretch out into the future. The evils of cigar smoking have been disoanted on many times, but for a practical illustration of them we know of nothing so effective as the dilemma a good subscriber of ours was in Saturday. His appearance in the office was abrupt, he throw his bundles right and left on the iloor, and ran for the water pail as though he had a live coal on his stomach. But instead of using water internally, he began to fill his pocket with it, and the smoke which resulted indicated what was the matter. After the threatened conflagration was checked, he explained that he had thoughtlessly put his lighted cigar in his pocket, and that it was not many minutes before he began to suffer the mental agony lawyers- tell about in libel petitions. And now just as J. W. Hinchon's congressional boom is on comes the discouraging news that he got lost on the wav back from Chicago. It pains us to publish the facts which are that in company with another leading Boies boomer lie became turned around in the usually straight going city of Eagle Grove, His companion thought there would be more switching and so did not get aboard the train north. But Bro. Hinchon made no error about the switching and boarded a car that seemed to be waiting for him. In due season he was landed at Humboldt. Later in the day he cut across to L,u Verne and there in the afternoon the two friends greeted each other and the one said he had business in> Eagle that held him, while Bro. H. said he had delinquent subscribers at Humboldt, Before they got to Algona, however, they agreed that those stories were lu *y. & ,_.,..,.. a nd so told the whole pretty unlikely, and so told the woe truth and agreed to say nothing abou it and not let anyone know what had happened. Wha't they are curious about now is how it leaked -out. The Spokane Review of June 39 has item of interest to our ning that Comstook & Patterson of the Crescent dry goods THE TEAOHER'S INSTITUTE.

Forsythe is to deliver a lecture on " Life in Libby Prison" Saturday evening July 2, at the Webster school house; proceeds to be applied to refitting the M. E. Parsonage. May need Noah's ark after all, if these rains continue forty days and forty nights longer. Fenton can't afford even a picnic this year, The people will most probably celebrate in Whittemore. The road supervisors are busy lately supervising the repairing of roads in Fenton. The Fenton base ball club are to play against Whittemore's nine the Fourth or so it is rumored. music furnished. Emmetsburg was selected for next meeting. The association is extending its borders. Sanborn brethern asked for admission and were received. The association is destined to do a great amount of good.

Architect Carter came from Minneapolis and spent Friday in Algona arranging the outline plans for the new opera house. The result of his visit is a much larger and more stylish building than was talked of when the project was first broached. Mr. Call is now arranging for a three-story front, the upper rooms to be fitted for the Algona club, and the opera hall instead of having a 24 foot ceiling will now have one 36 feet high, the gallery being so arranged as to give us practically two galleries. This latter change will be made in any event, and will improve the public hall in a manner that need not be described, As Mr. Carter said when talking of it " we are not going to build a country hall but a city theatre." Mr. Carter had only the floor plans and a sectional view prepared but they show a handsome and roomy theatre. There will be seats for 570 people. The stage will be 30 feet deep, at each side will be a handsome private box, the seats will be so arranged that each will front the stage in full view, the floor will have a gradual slant from the first row of chairs back, there will be a rail separating the dress circle, and the gallery will be likewise separated from the balcony. The latest improvement will be a movable floor which will be put over the seats in the parquet fpr dances, fairs, and such public gatherings, and which will be stored under the stage. There will be two water closets and wash rooms on the stage and one in the front of the building, four dressing rooms, and the whole building will undoubtedly be heated by steam. Mr, Call has joined with our other builders in putting in a big sewer, and will use the waterworks all through his buildings. The front elevation of the opera house has not been drawn, but will be in keeping with the general character of the building. The company who are to manage it are figuring on stage fittings and will have thena to correspond. Altogether Algona will have the finest and opera house to be foun4 in any of the smaller cities in Ipwa, All who buy for cash get one of these Roasters.
