Our old friend L. Witham tells us about a big ear of corn. Thos. Rich, who bought Uncle Steve Pettibone's farm, raised it, and it has 18 rows with 50 kernels to the row, or 900 kernels in all. It belongs to the white variety of dent corn. Who can beat it? The marriage list holds its own this week. Licenses have been issued to A. W Calkins and M. C. Leatherman, John A.

Recorder Smith's farm is a little too far away for winter moving, and he will remain in town till spring. Philip and Paul Dorweiler and Henry Bell were over Monday for the tax sale. Paul says that if no one can be got to take the postofflce in Algona he will come over if a good bonus is raised, and Henry Bell says he has signed two petitions already one for the Whittemore and one for the Bancroft office. Our Algona candidates should be moving in this matter of making a showing of strength. One of the most enterprising business firms in the county is Thompson & Dorweiler at Whittemore, and the business thev are doing there is a recognition of merit on the part of the public. They have an announcement in this issue which shows that they are prepared for the holidays, and everyone within trading distance of Whittemore should give it close attention. The boys are both well known In the county and this success gives pleasure to their friends everywhere. 'Squire Thompson's court had a family jangle before it yesterday. Fred. Johnson, who works the Wm. Peck farm in Fenton, had his brother arrested for assault. It seems they had a difference about some corn husking and the young man had varied the monotony by giving his elder brother a baa black eye. Fred., his wife and her brother all told the same story, but the court let the defendant go, evidently believing that the state of Iowa shouldn't be meddling in family quarrels. J. W. Sullivan defended and the county attorney prosecuted. THE UPPER DES MOINES is keeping a close watch on postofflce developments, but has nothing new to offer this week except that Jas.

We would advise all applicants to call nt the next aoor east ot the pofltoflloo at an early date.
