M. Heath and F. M. Spicer are licensed to wed. D. S. Ford is helping in Robinson's hardware store. Bradley & Nicoulin sent out three strings of buggies Monday. The regular meeting of James C. Taylor post Wednesday evening. The council are figuring with well- digging firms about the city well. The bicycle club meets this evening to practice some marching maneuvers. Townaend & Langdon have oil "cheaper than water, and groceries at prices to match. The prospect for rain is good today. Curiously enough it is a bright and cheerful prospect. Chas. Larrabee, son of the governor, is in town today, and will look over their lands in Swea. A well informed man says that 100 teams are now wanted for breaking more than can be had. No one should miss the lecture on electricity this evening. It will more than repay all who attend. Company F received their new leg- gins . and blouses yesterday, and will soon march in new dress. W. F. Carter's fancy double Shetland pony carriage was out Sunday, and attracted admiring attention. Haswell Ramsay is secretary of a collecting agency organized by Hughes & Hastings at Seattle. He is doing well. John Goeders used fine pressed brick for his two fronts on Dodge street. He is making a substantial improvement. Rev. McDonald was the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. E. Clarke while in town. He met with a hearty reception on his visit. A number of Algonians went to Ruthven the first of the week to see how the fishing opens in Lost Island lake. They found plenty of fish. Frank Hedrick has been promoted to head man on the mail run from St. Paul to Des Moines, and now goes way through in charge of the car. People who have been in the habit of cutting trees and plants in the cemetery are warned to desist or some one will be made an example of. This is official. A. J. Robison took possession of his store at Britt Saturday. He and Mrs. Robison returned Sunday to meet Rev. McDonald at the Episcopalian church. A band of Italian musicians played in town Saturday and Monday. The boys got up a hurried dance Saturday evening, for which they furnished the music. A new mail clerk threw all the Algona mail sacks off at Wesley this morning, and they had to be ordered on by telegram to come on the noon freight. Goeders' cut price clothing sale continues ten days. Now is the time to get wearing apparel cheap. Read his advertisement this week and lay in a stock for the year. Leatherman, the 'bus man, is now nominally in charge of the Thorington house. Will Price is running it, and all hands are waiting to hear from H. K. Hess, the owner. Elmer Slagle has received his appointment. It came Monday evening, and puts him on the run from St. Paul to Des Moines. He will have a good place and will prove an expert. Wm. .Leslie was down from Ledya'rd Monday and made this office a pleasant call. He says the steam breaking plow is tearing up sod at the rate of 40 acres a day just west of that growing burg. The routine work at Recorder Smith's office was enlivened last \yeek as a bashful looking young man sidled up and whispered to him to know if that was where 'marriage licenses could be had. The grand jury adjourned last week minutes after it met. At the last term of court it did the same, and Kossuth has the exceptional reputation of two grand juries without a complaint to investigate. The regular meeting of the W. Gf T. TJ. and reading room association will be held at the reading room on Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock. Please come out, and thus encourage the ladies by your presence if no more. Some Bancroft stock men .went to Chicago last week. W. W. Wilson says prices are still high but that ex- peVienced men feel cautious about the future. He says also that it is dry in eastern Iowa and Illinois. Several Algonians called on J. C Heckart last week at Eagle Grove anc found him doing a good business anc centrally located. Eagle Grove is on a boom this spring and is building a number of fine brick blocks. There will be a strawberry and ice cream festival at the Spear store build ing on State street, given by the Ladies Aid society of the M. E. church on Thursday,'May 21, from 6 to 11 p. m Everybody cordially invited. Ladendorf's restaurant is moving in to the vacant building next door to the postoffice, which is being nicely fitted up for it. There is no better locatioi in town, and this popular resort wil gain new patronage by the change. L. F. Robinson reports that Dr. Shore is meeting with success in Des Moines They office in the same building, anc he has an opportunity to see the docto often. Dr. Shore says he is doing much better than he had any reason U expect. The travelling horse traders struc! the wrong man in Nels Jensen. H •was down looking at a horse and mad n offer. Next day they came up and aid they had concluded to trade and ook his horse. When he went to get no one he had traded for he found that is leg had been broken in the night, nd it- was worthless. E. H. Clarke nd Sheriff Stephens secured a new ragon and other belongings of the out- t, and they traded back Monday, let- ing Nels out without loss. •The annual pew meeting of the Con- _regational church will take place 'uesday June 2, 1891. The church will be open from 3 to 4 p. m., and from :30 to 8:30 p. m. If you desire sittings lease keep this date in mind and be iresent if possible. The Paul lumber company is putting n a yard at Bancroft. Mr. Bacon went p yesterday to complete arrangements, t is a good reliable company and will >e found all right by_ our northern leighbors. Wes. Robison will have harge of the yard. Today is a lucky one for a number of he county's best young people. Grant J. Fairbanks and Clara Grover, Chas. J. Sarchett and Sada A. Patterson, "red. C. Bacon and Delia A. Hume all get married today. May much joy and food luck attend them. Presiding Elder Black has been in- ited to preach the baccalaureate ser- non of tlfe Methodist, college at Sioux ~!ity, Sunday, June 21, and will accept. ?ho invitation is a compliment to our residing elder, and a recognition of is ability as a speaker. Union memorial services will be held t the Congregational church Sunday morning at 11. Tho Jas. C. Taylor ost, G. A. R., and Chas. Gray camp, ons of veterans, will attend in a body, "'here will be patriotic music, and ad- resses by Revs, Whitfield, Smith, and )avidson. Wm. G. Clarke has accepted a situa- .on with an insurance company at ioux City and \yill locate there. He cts as legal adviser and manager, and as in every way a desirable opening. | [is many Algona friends will be 1 leased to have him locate permanent- y in Iowa, We have a new item on Phil Hanna's onsulship. It seems tho place he riginally chose and wanted to go to ras Messina in Sicily. He would have rrived there about the time tho Sicili- ns were red hot over the New Orleans usiness, and had a chance to exercise ny amount of diplomacy. Coleman Chubb's injuries from last reek's trouble with his horse prove to e very serious. He is still very sick, Ithough his recovery is anticipated, t seems he was entangled in the reins nd was dragged several rods before his hoe pulled off, releasing him, and his lead was badly bruised. He has seri- us trouble in swallowing, and his side s benummed. The "Y" case is in the supreme ourt on the question decided by Judge Carr. If the judge is sustained, the ompanies then have new grounds they vill fight on, one being that they have ?o ground to build on and Iowa cannot ompel them to buy ground if they lon't want to. The actual building of he "Y" will probably be postponed or some weeks yet. Another runaway romance is under a ihadow. The young man, who ran away vith Miss Hodgson of Burt, was arrested for bigamy las b Friday, and is put under $1,000 bonds, to await a hearing n 30 days. 'Squire Taylor held him or further evidence from his old home, ind ordered him and his new wife to ive apart in the meantime. The facts vill come out at the trial, and will be cnown in due time. As memorial day approaches it is >roper that all lot owners in the cemetery should arrange to have their ground properly cared for. Sexton Tohlin makes reasonable rates for the rork, and those who cannot attend to t themselves should see him. Our cemetery is a credit to the town, and managers have each year added to or improved it. Lot owners should not >e behind in keeping up the appearance of the resting place of their friends. Old Mr. Heckart went to Eagle Grove ast Thursday to spend the day with lis son, J. C., and to celebrate his 86th nrthday. He is the oldest resident of ,he county, but is still hale and hearty and travels about and works as well as when he was fifty. If he and Mrs. EEeckavt live till next March they will celebrate the COth anniversary of their wedding. As Mrs. Heckart is improv ng in health, they bid fair to not only see this but many more such anniversaries. Prof. Favour's lecture on electricity ast evening was one of the best and most instructive entertainments ever iven in Algona, and should have hac i full house. He explained the tele- raph, electric clocks, hotel bells, anc performed many interesting chemical ixperiments. Tonight he explains the telephone, phonograph, etc. No one should miss this lecture. Prof. Favoui ,s an interesting talker, understand? lis business, and has abundant apparatus. The sheriff of Chatauqua county, Nev York, is expected today to secure Tommy Ryan on the charge of seduction Ryan came here about Christmas anc has been working for Hugh Black Pictures were sent over the country to secure his arrest, and Sheriff Stephens happening to see one, finally located hin man and secured him. Ryan says there is no case against him. If so he is al right; but if he was dodging justice h< came to a poor county. Marsh don' allow much peace to evil doers in th< limits of Kossuth. Supt. Gemmil, with his assistan teachers, the Misses Akers, Darrah Kelly, Donovan, Retzloff, and Folger o the Emmetsburg public schools, spen the day on Friday last in looking ove our schools. They visited each depart ment in detail, making themselve thoroughly conversant with the meth ods of management and instruction i use, and expressed themselves as highly pleased with both. At the close o school carriages were procured and th visitors were driven about town unti train time, when they departed with cordial invitation to the Algona teach ers to spend a day with them in th near future. O. W. McMurray returned from For est City Saturday with the ctfotraet foi the new $10,000 school house to be buil there this season. He already had th building of a church there, and thi gives him a summer's job. The Fores City school board inspected the Algona building and also that at Clear Lake aad were well pleased with Mr. Mo lurray's work, and will give him every dvantage. They couldhave secured no etter workman, and they Avill get a rst-class school house at tho very low- stcost. They built a $17,000 brick chool house a few years ago, and are ow taking it down to keep it from lowing down. Rev. Whitfield's friends can imagine he pleasant feelings with which ho pened a letter Monday which Started ut as follows: "Wo are treating lundreds of invalids all over the coun- ry, and those who have been cured are ecommending their friends to us. In very mail wo receive names of inva- ids, with a request that wo send them ur (printed matter. Desirous of ex- ending our field of usefulness, wo re- uest those who havo been cured to end us the names of sufferers, and mong the many names furnished, ours appears as being an invalid, icnco we take tho liberty of sending ou some of our books and writing to ou." If the medicine men wait for a latient till they got our preacher, they rill bo a long time without a job. Col. Comstock has been taking a land in tho Shaksporo-Bacon conilict nd has delivered a lecture on tho Bacon side at Spokane. The Spokesman gives a long report which It pro- ices by saying: "A tall, well built mil, with a mustache, and a deep leasant voice, spoke to a large audi- nco Sunday night at tho Unitarian hurch. Ho delivered an elaborate ad- rcss. Col. J. M. Comstock was the terary skeptic, who lifted'his hand to emovo tho dark bandage of blind faith •cm tho eyes of tho largo assemblage liat crowded the church. His arguments were logical and convincing, and bowed him to bo a man of deep thought nd erudition. Ho quite convinced his uditors that even if it was mildness to ttempt to correct the great Sha-lts- erean mistake, there was much moth- d in it, and as a literary effort it was •orthy a kinder cause tlnili destroying beloved tradition." PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. Mr. and Mrs. John G. Smith went to ies Moines Monday. Frank Chase of Clear Lake inspected tie sons of veterans last night. It is reported that Geo.
