He said that whichever hotel you stop at you will wish you had stopped at the other. Rev. L. Johnson came from Trenton, 111,, Monday in response to a telegram announcing the serious illness of his father, A. M. Johnson. All friends of our pioneer settler will be glad to know that he is better this morning, and hopes are felt that he will be up again. Samuel Mayne tells us that W. E. Morrison has strong backing for a federal appointment and is likely to have a position under the new administration. His health is much improved and his reform is permanent, Old Kossuth friends will rejoice to hear that he is successful in getting a place. Jake Freeh writes us to correct the report^hat he is to start a democratic paper in Bancroft. If he has anything to do with it it will be independent in politics. By way of Bancroft newspaper news it is reported that V. S. Ellis has taken the Register back and will conduct it hereafter, and that Bro. Hallock will retire from the field. Monday morning as Supt. Reed was driving along the Northwestern track south of J. H. Paine's place a train came up and scared his horse, which jumped off the dump and ran into the wire fence near by. Our worthy educator was spilled unceremoniously and considerably shaken up. The harness and wagon were damaged but theliorse escaped unhurt. About 2,000 head of heavy cattle have been shipped out of Kossuth and the immediate neighborhood this year, and yet big bunches are being fed. C. L. Lund has over 200, Barnet Devine 200, and Nels Martin at Bancroft 100 feeding, while in and about Burt, Portland, and Plum Creek, a dozen or more are feeding from 20 to 60 head. Kossuth turns off a lot of beef cattle in a year. Our patrons who are ordering papers or periodicals for the coming year can save money by ordering through us. The discount is not great on cheap weekly papers but, on magazines or high priced weeklies we can save from 10 per cent, up to our customers, besides relieving them of the bother of writing. Our list includes every paper published in the United States and the leading foreign countries, in whatever language. The Iowa weather bureau has averaged up the weather for December during the past 14 years, and from that any one can guess what is ahead of us. They say the average temperature has been 20 degrees above zero. The warmest December was that of 1889, with an average of 40 degrees. The coldest December was that of 1884, with an average of 18 degrees. The highest temperature was 69 degrees on Dec. 24, 1889. The lowest temperature during any December was 20 degrees below on Dec. 27,1886. On Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock, Dec. 10, there will be a meeting held in the Algona reading room for the purpose of perfecting the world's fair organization, inaugurated by Mrs. John F. Duncombe of Fort Dodge. It is requested that each township send one or more representatives to this meeting in order that methods may be considered whereby woman's work in Kossuth county may be worthily represented at the coming world's fair. In spite of stormy weather a large audience was out Friday evening for the regular social club meeting. Lewis H Smith's description of his trip over the Northern Pacific railroad was the chief feature of the programme, and was very entertaining. Mrs. A. D. Clarke read an excellent essay on " Pluck," and Mrs. Ingham read a selection from an address by Robt. Collyer on books. An instrumental solo by Geo. Horton and a vocal solo by C. M. Doxsee added to the entertainment. The magazine called Good Roads is getting out special monthly editions devoted to roads and road reform in each state. It will soon devote an issue to Iowa, and Thos. F. Cooke has been secured by it as one of a commitee of three to arrange the matter for publication. Mr. Cooke has devoted considerable attention to the matter of bettering our highways, and some of his photographs of bad roads have already been published in Good Roads, The Iowa edition of Good Roads will be looked forward to with interest, Jos. Hudson sends us an item from the Elgin, 111., Daily Courier, which gives news of Bert Langdon's work. It reads: "Messrs Langdon & Rogers, en- ineers for the Chicago, Milwaukee & t Paul Railway company, have opened headquarters on Bri'dge" street, over They have charge of one of the men to hitch up his team, and the man grabbing a neck yoke struck Sullivan over the head. At first it was thought he was killed, but he is around again with a badly disfigured countenance. The man who hit him Skipped and was not caught. The story is that all hands were drunk. Our readers will remember a boiler explosion last fall which occurred east of Wesley in Hancock county, by which a boy was killed. The father has brought two suits against the owner, one for $10,000 and one for $5,000, both of which came on at Garner yesterday. Geo. E. Clarke has the defense in charge and Monday evening Chas. Cohenour went to Garner, and yesterday Mr. Clarke followed. The trial will not come on at this term, but Mr. Clarke will get the issues settled and begin securing his evidence. John Ray of Algona had the engine in charge, and the case when it is tried will be of interest. It will involve the question of the liabilities of threshing engine owners for accidents. One of J. J. Wilson's span of big gray horses met death by a curious accident Sunday night. The first symptom of trouble .was Friday, when tne horse refused to eat. No particular attention was paid to it, however, nor was anything serious thought to be the matter. Saturday night it dropped dead. Dr. Sayers was curious to know what had caused so strange a result, and on post mortem examination discovered a stiff resin weed six inches long sticking through the small intestine a few inches below the stomach. It had evidently been there some time, and through the hole it made the finer food had passed out of the digestive canal altogether, filling thn horse up. The doctor suys this is the first case of the kind he ever heard of, and he will send the part of the intestine with the weed to the agricultural college as a curiosity. Nothing new has developed in the local postofflce campaign the past week. But at Fort Dodge a lively row is on which is to settle whether Bro. Ryan or John F. Duncombe is to run the distributing office for the district. A Fort Dodge dispatch in the daily papers reads: " What promises to be one of the prettiest postofflce. fights on record is on here. W. E. Duncombe, editor of the Chronicle, was first in the field, backed by John F. Duncombe. The Ryan forces, who will oppose Mr. Duncombe's right to the patronage distribution, have settled on Thos. Brown, and will back him to the bitter end. The betting is in favor of Dun- combo at present." Our Algona candidates will watch the outcome with interest and probably be cautious about tieing up to either side. But THE UPPER DES MOINES throws caution to the winds and comes out square for Ryan. It is Ryan against the world with us, when it comes to giving out the offices. THE NEW BAPTIST OHUBOE. Rev. Dorwnrd Tells the Sheldon Mall About Algona's Fine Improvement. Rev. W. H. Dorward informs the Mail that the Baptists of Algona are building a $6,000 church edifice there, which they expect to dedicate in January. The auditorium of the house is 46x46 feet in size, the lecture room 30x20. There is also a class room 12x20 and a chair and robing room back of the pulpit and a pastor's study 12x12. The floor is inclined and the auditorium will be seated with $2 opera chairs in semi-circular form. The house will be heated by three Fuller &, Warren furnaces. The architecture is Gothic in style, with two towers, and ventilator in center of main room. About $4,000 has already been subscribed and paid and it is expected that the balance necessary to pay for this splendid improvement will be forthcoming the day of dedication. Dr. Stetson, president of Des Moines college, will preach the dedicatory sermon. The possibilities of the church will be increased 50 per cent, by the erection of this beautiful, commodious structure. Horse Sale. I will offer at public sale on the street in Algqna, at 2 p. m. on Saturday, Dec. 3, one black four-year-old Exile colt, and two three-year-old Pettibone colt.

Galbraith & Co. IT WAS A GRAND FIZZLE, The Comet Collision and Meteoric Display Squelched by Clouds and Fog Sunday Nifflit. People Stretched their Necks to See It, but it Missed Us by the Mere Matter of 150 Million Miles. A goodly number in Algona strained their eyes Saturday and Sunday nights to catch a glimpse of the comet* whose tail was to switch us with a heavy meteoric shower. No meteors came, and no comet was visible, owing to heavy clouds and fog. All over, the country the same report is made, and astronomers as well as others are greatly disappointed. Among other incidents reported is the following from Memphis, Tcnn.: The negroes of Memphis were wild with excitement Sunday night. All the colored churches were crowded with dusky worshipers who every moment expected to hear the blast of Gabriel's bugle announcing the end of the world. The colored ministers, with one accord, took the comet as their texts and succeeded in working their congregations into a frenzy of excitement by picturing the terrible effects of a collision between the heavenly tramp and the earth. Men, women, and children fell on their knees in the aisles and prayed God to save them from the devil. At Philadelphia it is reported: There were many who were afraid to venture from their homes and preferred to die by their own firesides if the expected death was to come. Three cases of insanity through fear of destruction of the world were reported to the police. The sky was cloudy, and nobody saw anything. The astronomers are still disputing about the comet. Some say it is Biela's and some that it is not; some that it is going, and some coming, some that it will pass near us, some that it will never come within ]00 million miles. Removal Sal We are not going to leave town, but are simply going to move soon into BIG-G-ER QUARTERS, and before we move we will close out our entire stock of Shoes, Rubbers, Men's, Boys,' and Children's Suits and Overcoats, Ladies,' G-ents,' and Children's Underwear, Hats and Caps, Gloves, Mittens, etc., etc,, at prices never heard of before in Algona or vicinity.

Miss Cora Hibbard enjoye_d a visit from her brother Thanksgiving. Mrs. R. B. Warren returned from her Minneapolis visit Saturday evening. Judge Weaver's many Algona friends enjoyed seeing him last week. He was over from Sioux City farm in Cresco. attending to his Miss Olive French of Livermore, who attended our normal school last year, is visiting the Misses Whitman and her many Algona friends. W. B. Quarton went to Ledyard Monday morning on legal business and to Humboldt Monday evening, where he has some cases in court. • B. P. Grose was down from Bancroft Monday. Ho says he will dispose of his barber shop to the young man who has been with him, when he comes to Algona to take his office. We predict that Mr. Grose will be as popular an official as has ever been in the clerk's ot-. flee, and that is saying a good deal. Geo. W. Annis dropped into Algona Monday from Spokane Palls. He reports all the Algonians there doing well. Col. Comstock and Robt. Patterson have moved to their new store and now employ 15 clerks and have the largest business in the city. Jas. Paine and Gene Shadle are both doing well, as are also Mr. and Mrs. R. J. Danson.

If you wish to take the trip of a lifetime purchase the low-rate excursion tickets sold by all the principal lines in the United States and Canada via the Northern Pacific railroad to the Yellowstone National park, Pacific coast, and Alaska. The trip is made with the highest degree of comfort in the elegant vestibuled trains of the Northern Pacific railroad, wlrioh carry dining cars and luxurious Pullman sleeping cars from Chicago, St. Paul and Minneapolis to Montana and the Pacific coast, without change, and special Pullman sleepers from St. Paul and Minneapolis to the Yellowstone park. The scenery en route is the most magnificent to be found in the seven states through which the road passes. Beautiful mountains, rivers, valleys, lakes and plains follow each other in rapid succession to delight the tourist, who will also find interest in the agricultural, mining, lumbering, industrial and other interests associated with the development of the great northwest. The crowning glory of the trip through the northwest, however, is the visit to Yellowstone park, the land of hot springs, geysers, und gorgeous canyons, and to Alaska with its endless ocean channels, snowcapped peaks, Indian villages, and giant glaciers. If you wish to investigate this suggestion further, send to Charles S. Fee, general passenger agent N. P. U. R., St.«Paul, Minn., for copies of the handsomely illustrated "Wonderland" book, Yellowstone park and Alaska folders.—84 CORN WANTED. LADIES, call and see the corsets we are selling for 48c. Geo. L.

IP. S. STOTJGKE3:.. Sixty Million Bushels of Wheat. Never in the history of Kansas has that state had such bountiful crops as this year. The farmers could not get enough hands to harvest the great crop, and the Santa Fe railroad made special rates from Kansas tjf and other Missouri river towns to induce harvest hands to go into the state. The wheat crop of the state will be from sixty to sixty-five million bushels, and the quality is high. The grass crop is made, and is a very large one; the early potatoes, rye, barley, and oat crops are made, and all are large. The weather has been propitious for corn, and it is the cleanest, best- looking corn to be found in the country today. Cheap rates are made from Chicago, St. Louis, and all points on the Santa Fo east of the Missouri river to all points in Kansas, and a chance is given for eastern farmers to see what the great Sunflower state can do. A good map of Kansas will be mailed free upon application to Jno. J. Byrne, 733 Monadnock block, Chicago. 111., together with reliable statistics and information about Kansas lands.—84 FARM LOANS.
