Mrs. Graham is able to be up a little and she is rapidly regaining her physical strength.

Davidson performed the ceremony which united Mr. Chas. L. Quinlan and Miss Lou Nicoulin in matrimony last Wednesday evening, in the presence of relatives only. The happy coupla went at once to Rochester, Minn., and from there for a wedding trip. They will return to Algona for Christmas. The concert given by the Whitney Mockridge company last Thursday evening drew a full house and was undoubtedly the best ever given in Algona, Both tho Abbie Carrington and Kate Bensberg companies were first classj but we think it is the general verdict that they were neither of them equal to this. Algona was very fortunate in securing a visit from them. The marriage licenses indicate that Thanksgiving will be a happy season to a large number of the county's best young people. W. T. Dehnert and Mary Ranney, John Huschkaand Anna Andorfer, L. J. Larson and Vena Gehrtz, Jas. D. Breen and Jane Cosgrove, Schuyler C. Castleman and Ida Hunt, Herman Baas and Lizzie Strite have joined the love league. An important business transfer will probably occur January first. Louis Lessing yesterday made a deal by which a Minnesota man named McGregor will take possession of his furniture stock and business. Mr. Lessing retains his building and also the sewing machine business. It is his intention to build an office and devote his time exclusively to this branch hereafter. The regular meetingpf the social union club comes Friday evening at the Congregational church parlors. An excellent programme is offered consisting of an address on the value of public libraries, Capt. P. C. Bailey; a talk on "Travels in the West," by Lewis H. Smith; and an essay by Mrs. A. D. Clarke. Miss Zcrwehk has the musical part in charge. All are cordially invited. Director Sage in his monthly crop review gives a deserved mention of Wm. Ward's services in northern Iowa. He says: "Wm. Ward, one of the ablest of the voluntary observers of this service, died athis home in Garner, Iowa, on the 24th ult., aged 52 years. He was a scientist of more than local renown, and his papers on various branches of science have been widely published. His death is a public calamity." And now it is reported that Jake Freeh is arranging to run a democratic paper in Bancroft. He has severed his relations with the Republican, or more properly speaking the Republican has severed its relations with him, and he is to rent the Bancroft Register. Bancroft ought to have a democratic paper. It is the democratic headquarters of the county. But whether Jake can furnish the Jeffersonian doctrine undefiled is something of a question. Edwin Blackford is home from Des Moines, where he attended the annual meeting of the co-operative insurance companies of the state. The reports showed great increase in the amount of risks all over the state, and uniformly satisfactory results. A new branch of co-operative work was undertaken at this meeting, a stock company being organized to insure residence property in towns. It will be ready for operation in January, and expects to greatly reduce insurance rates on this class of property. I. Ames is up from Missouri for the winter and will occupy his house in Algona. He tells many interesting things about that country, and among them an amusing story about the ignorance of the people of the "*'» ^""t.i-v." One of them came up The sensation of the week in town is the reported sale of the Republican by Jos. W. Hays to the brother of S. Mayne, who visited in town a month ago. Mr. Mayne takes possession Jan. and holds Mr. Hays' lease, which runs till Aug. 1, of next year. Then he and Mr. Starr make some new deal the particulars of which are not yet arranged. Mr. Hays has not fully decided what he will do, but expects to go into daily newspaper work in some city. Mr. Mayne, we understand, has no newspaper experience, but begins his apprenticeship in Algona. He has chosen the right place. There is ho town in Iowa where he can get more valuable experience in less time than right here. A big fire burned a lot of corn in Lu- Verne township last week and threatened to destroy a bridge on the North western. The News says: "On last Saturday afternoon fire laid waste several acres of corn belonging to Mr. Simpson on the Conner farm and ignited the timbers of the bridge on the Northwestern near by. Mr. Simpson hastened to town and notified Agent Myers, who at once wired Eagle Grove for assistance. An engine with a number of hands from the round house soon arrived and the fire was extinguished with water from the tank. Further than burning off the ends of a few ties no damage was done at the bridge, though of course it was but a matter of a little time when the entire structure would have been consumed." The Concord. N. H., Evening Monitor gives very full reports of tho national meeting of the Grange held there last week. J. E. Blackford represented Iowa, and was placed upon many of the important committees, among them transportation and foreign relations. The secretary's report has the following items "of interest: "During the year dispensations were issued for new granges to the number of 113. These were distributed as follows: California. 3; Connecticut, 6; Illinois, 5; Indiana. 2; Maine, 4; Massachusetts, 5; Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, and Nebraska, 1 each; New Hampshire, 25 Ohio, 6; New York, 21; Oregon, 2 Pennsylvania, 24; Rhode Island, 2 Washington, 4. There were issued during the year 113 original charters 21 duplicate charters, 17 outfits todepu ties, 429 seventh degree certificates 1,764 sixth degree certificates. The receipts of the secretary's office during the year ending Sept. 30, 1892, were §5,679.31." ___ A MILWAUKEE WEEOK. A Terrible Smash Up West of Spon cer Monday—Trains Delayed. The morning east-bound passenger on the Milwaukee did not arrive at Algona Monday till afternoon owing to i freight train wreck near Spencer. Thi details are given in a dispatch to th! Register. The conductor of the f reign is the same one who had his caboose burn up a few days previous: SPENCER, Nov. 21.—The conductor of a west-bound C., M. & St. P. extra left his caboose and 15 cars standing on the main line at Hartly without setting the brakes. They ran away down grade and met the regular train near Everly, demolishing the engine, caboose and a number of cars. The Stephenson bridge gang, five in number, were in the caboose asleep. They are all badly used up and one named Doty of Stevenson died at 10 o'clock. The others will probably recover. The wreck presents a fearful sight. Two cars of coal were piled upon the engine and caught fire from it, PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. Miss Gertrude Clarke Is home from a visit at the Ed. Williams home in Da- cota. She returned Friday. Mr. and Mrs. O. Reaves go today to Stuart to spend the winter with their son, who lives there. Geo. C. Call started for Llano Monday going by Sioux City. He will ipend the winter south. J. R. Blossom was over from Spencer or Sunday. He says Spencer had over 600 votes in the city proper this year. Our returned Missourians report that Uncle Tom Clarke has moved to Kansas, and is now in Phillips county. Dr. Morse was out to Sanborn the first of the week, and walked 18 miles ,o Everly, being in a hurry and no irain on hand. Mark Simpkins is up from Missouri and will return to Kossuth in the spring. They all like this section pretty well after being in other parts for a while. Alex. Dorwoiler was over from Whittemore yesterday. He says everything is ready for work on that brick block is soon as spring opens. Whitternoro is going to boom next season. Rev. Bagnell attended dfstrict conference last week at Webster City, delivering an address on education. He reports Rev. and Mrs. Flannigan nicely located at Eagle Grove and doing well. Tom Sherman and P. T. Relmers were down from Bancroft Monday, tho genial banker to have an aching tooth attended to. The boys promised to get up a big dance when their new hall is done and invite all Algona up. We'll be there. Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Warren went to Minneapolis last week for a few days' visit with Hugh Waterhouse and family. They found Hugh in charge of a wagon shop and doing well. Their daughter F.dna is a shortha.nd reporter in one of the leading law offices of the city. Joe Richie, who represents tho Carter & Hussey blank book house, was in Algona last week. He is the one who won a bet in Des Moines with Geo. Keenhold by which Keenhold had to walk 12 miles carrying a banner for Cleveland and at every section line cheer for Cleveland and Richie. Grant Hawkins was in town Monday, going home from a visit with his sister at Bancroft. He now owns a half interest in the Morning Sun Herald, and leases the other half. He tips the scales at 195 pounds and is as portly as an alderman. He says his father and Ed are at Guthrie, Oklahoma, in business. Rome Woodworth was in town Monday on his way back to Chicago. He holds a responsible position with the Stevens Harvester company and expects to be located at Omaha next year. When asked why he didn't swear in his vote at Bancroft when challenged, he said he didn't feel real sure that he had a "residence" there. He guessed he had moved away. Hon. I. L. Woods, who ran for congress against Dolliver two years ago, was out from Chicago last week and spent Sunday in Algona. He is engaged now exclusively in selling cattle and hogs on commission. In talking about the low price of cattle he said he thought it was largely due to the cheap production in Texas and Montana. He says cattle come from the west in as good condition from their grass, as our cattle do after being corn fed.
