Any business transacted with him Will be the Same as though done at this office. THE CITY. Hogs are worth from $5.50@5.90, The dancing club gives a party this evening. We hear that a boy has been added to Wm. G. Clarke's family down in Kansas City. A holiday baby arrived at Gardner Cowles home last night. It is a girl and everybody is well. R. M. Gardner sold four hogs this fall for $110, and ho didn't strike tho highest market at that. Mr. Burbank. who was to open a harness shop in Wesley, has sold his interest and remains in Algona. Marriage licenses have been issued to C. M. Collenson and Mary Fehlhauer, Henry R. Elvidge and Effle M. Wolcott. W.'S. Dot-land's name now appears along with the affix "President" in connection with the First National bank of Llano. Mart Weaver takes Chas. Cohenour's place in Geo. E. Clarke's office. Mart is handy <vith the typewriter and a good stenographer. D. A. Haggard is off to Des Moines to settle up his year's work with the New England Loan and Trust company. He is their appraiser. The Good Templars meet in Starr's hall every Friday evening. All members of the order are cordially invited to attend the meetings. A pleasant marriage was celebrated last week by which W. F. Mullica and Vronica Hackman were united. Many good wishes attend them. ' The sleighing in the county as .ill over the state is the best we have ever had. The only place where there is no snow is up about Estherville. The Misses Smith and McCoy tender the Minnesota university glee club a reception at Dr. McCoy's home tomorrow evening after the concert. And now they say the Ouieja board says that Bro. Hinohon is to have tho postoffice. The skeptical will want to know whose hands were on the board. Mr. McGregor is down from Wells, Minn., to take possession of theLessing furniture store. He will invoice the stock at once and open with the new year. The new harness shop which Bales & White have opened at Wesley is advertised this week. The proprietors are good, reliable men and have a first-class opening. A valued subscriber writes about his paper and says: " Do not stop sending it, as we value it highly both for its literary qualities and for the many uses to which it can be put." It is reported that Dr. Barr will go . to Oregon soon to spend the winter with his old-time partner in Algona, Leavitt. He hopes that the climate may relieve him some from his face trouble. Presiding Elder Black, in a sermon at Emmetsburg, said: "I hate what is 1 termed fashionable society of today. He denounced in vigorous tevma the vanity and insincerity which is too prevalent in many places. Bancroft has arrived at the dignity of having a presidential appointment ol Postmaster. 1 Sam May no's successor will revive his papers direct from Grovur. Bancroft is rapidly htuouurig one of tho big towns of the state. There will be a meeting of the W. C T. U. at the reading room on Friday at 3 o'clock of this week. As there was no meeting the past month it is •HKthBttheroUafullBttendanoe to settle a little business that should be attended to.

W. Smith of Bancroft against M. Stephens. This is the last of the many troubles over that well, which, by the way, is a good well and growing in public favor every day. lew towns have as good water as A'l- gona does. Two weeks ago THE UPPER DES MOINES contained ah exceptionally good little poem from the pen of Bertha Carey. This week we publish an exceptionally good little Christmas story written by Jessamine L. Jones for A MODEL GROCERY HOUSE. It Comes as One of the Marked Improvements in This the Year of Our Boom. Brief Mention of the Spacious Quartets Now Occupied by W. F. Carter— Wholesale and Retail. songs are and the State University Vidette, the paper she is connected with. It shows more than usual ability and would be a credit to a writer of literary pretensions. M. L. Clarke, whose name now appears on a card which says "Real Estate and Loans," writes us from Pasadena: "Dec. 17 was very windy, reminding us of Iowa, only sand in place of snow; but today I saw a butterfly and humming birds. Oranges and lemons have been injured quite badly—have not learned to what extent away from hero. Algona people here all well." seems to be an organized movement on foot among the democrats to secure the consulship at LaGuayra for Geo. W. Skinner of Bancroft. Wo had figured Ike Finnoll for this place, but can be content with either, if he will carefully study our present consul's record and then assure the public that he would be equal to the emergency. The fact that the Courier isforSkinner would go to show that Ike is out of the field. A gentleman stopped at Heise : s barber shop Monday mistaking it for the postoffice. If the dyed-in-the-wool Cleveland men stand any show that may not be so big a blunder a year from now. But we have a suspicion that our German fellow citizens, who elected Cleveland, will land where Col. Ei- boeck did with Goy. Boies. The colonel says no German has thus far had an appointive office, and no one has up to date proved to the contrary. 'The new year opens up with a change for Charlie Cohenour, who has been so long Geo. E. Clarke's stenographer and assistant. He goes to Sioux City on a salary of $1,000 a year to work with Joy & Call, doing some writing and assisting also in law work. Charlie has studied faithfully in Algona, and if he does not rise in his profession he will disappoint all his acquaintances. This change gives him a splendid opening, and we predict that he will be found equal to all the demands upon him. Not long- ago a farmer living southwest of Algona was offered $5 a ton for hay on the track at Irvington by B. G. Hough. He said he could do better by sending to Chicago and so ho sent it to a commission firm there. They reported back that the hay was inferior in quality and sent him only $3 a ton on the track here. He at once came up and engaged Geo. E. Clarke to look the matter up for him and see if the commission house could not be compelled to show what the hay sold for. Mr. Clarke will investigate the matter. Chicago is to be the scene of a society event Saturday evening in which Algona is interested. Cheever Hudson departed for that city last evening and is to be united in marriage to Miss Bur«-an, who visited in Algona the present summer. The newly wedded couple will soon return to Algona to make their home, where they will be warmly welcomed. Miss Burgan is a very accomplished young lady, and the owner of considerable property m Chicago. A sudden change in plans gives the Purvis building on State street to F. S. Stough, who will move his boot and shoe store at once, and leaves Mr. Wolpert, who was expecting to take the room, out of a place. There was some misunderstanding between Mr. Wolpert and Mr. Purvis as to the lease, which it is rumored will be brought into court. As it is, Mr. Wolpert will remain where he is for the present. The room has been nicely refitted and will be very convenient for Mr. btougn. Jos W. Hays leaves Algona the middle of next woek, and this issue of the Republican is his last. Now that he is departing it is proper to remark that on the whole he has been a very reasonable competitor to get along with, and that THE UPPER DES MOINES wishes him all success in whatever he does. He has shown excellent ability in newspaper work, and will undoubtedly again enter the field some timeiniL future. Mr. Mayne is on the ground getting his hand in, and we join all in extending him a cordial greeting. An important trade was made Monday by which Gardner Cowles becomes owner of the F. S. Stough building and lot on State street. The consideraton &^'^£™™4^ ^V^w-^^^^ssiSss Algona has had several things that give it a metropolitan appearance added this season, but about the most important of these is Carter's new grocery store. He got his stock moved lust week and opened Up the day before Christmas with a magnificent line of new goods, especially fine in the way of lamps, fancy crockery, table delicacies, fruits, etc. These displayed in the new room with its hot water heat, fine hard- finished white walls, hard pine counters and bright, new fittings, gave an appearance of attractiveness which was as inviting as the new opera house and which drew visitors who had no idea but to see how handsomely our cash merchant was situated. The store room is all that its front promises. It is about two feet wider than the usual stores in town, and the high ceilings and white walls make it appear very light and attractive. The heat, too, being evenly distributed all over the store, adds greatly to the convenience of those who enter. In the show window Mr. Carter has on one side two immense jars of fancy pickles and on the other some very beautiful lamps. These stand for two important features of his stock. He has always carried a finely selected line of fancy canned goods in addition to the staples, and has made a specialty of keeping all the novelties for the table, being headquarters for fine fruits, fresh and canned, and fancy groceries. The lamps represent the largest stock he has ever brought to AlgonB, and come direct from the manufacturers at Trenton, N. J., where he bought at the same discount the Chicago jobbers get. It is worth a visit to the store simply to see what crockery is turned out at our American factories, and how cheap fine chinas of all grades can now be had. Along down the store come the fine new cigar case with the best cigars:and tobaccos, the confectionery counter, the rows of cracker boxes, the sugar barrels, all the staple groceries, ending wii.h ^the inevitable hogshead of prunes. It is a well arranged store filled with everything that could be asked for in a first- class establishment, and Mr. Carter- assures us that prices are cheaper than ever, and that his goods must' go. It certainly will pay all to visit the store and see what he has. We Expect to Move Into the new State Bank Block this week. Owing to delay in get ting moved we will make a Special Low Price on fancy goods of all kinds. We will show the largest line ol lamp goods of all kinds ever opened in Algona. These goods are bought direct of the factory in Tewton, New Jersey, and we can make lower prices than other dealers pay for inferior goods. We also have a line of novelties from the Hampshire potteries, something never before shown in Algona. Remember all our Crockery, Glassware, and Lamps are Opened up New this week. We shall be glad to welcome all our old customers well as new ones in our new store room. as W. F. CARTER. PEBSONAL MOVEMENTS. with tho Joseph Hudson came home rest. S. S.

We intend to move into our new store soon, where we will have more and better room. I heartily thank my friends in Burt and vicinity for the ve./y liberal patronage given me, and hope with increased facilities to be able to serve you better. We have some bargains to offer that are worth your while to look at. I am here to sell goods as low as possible, but will not buy cheap, shoddy goods.

A very peculiar case was boforo the insane commissioners yesterday, and comes up for final settlement this afternoon at 3 o'clock. Tho facts briefly are that Mrs. Miles L. Swceneyof Dubuquo came up to spend the holidays with her relatives, the Wernert family. Mrs. Sweeney is a daughter of IgnatK Wernert. Two of her children wore hero already, and she brought a third on account of the insanity of Mr. Sweeney. He a few days ago escaped the custody of his guardian, or was purposely let go by him, and' eamo to Algona to get the children. The family at once took Htops to have him secured by telegraphing to the sheriff of Dubuque county, but he sent word that as tho case was in the hands of a guardian ho could tin nothing, and then oh the advice of (leo. 13. Clarke Mr. Sweeney was taken in charge by Deputy Mclnroe and brought before our commissioners. In the meantime Mr. Sweeney's brother nnd his custodian have arrived, and W. B.

Dr. and Mrs. Shore, J. B. Jones, and W. W. Wheeler all came from Des Moines Saturday to see Algona people. Mr. and Mrs. Tennant ha,d their daughter and her husband, Mr. and Mrs. Patch of Hartley, here for Christmas, Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Paul a re over from Spencer for the holidays. J. E. is in the Paul lumber yard there and reports a good business. Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Langdon came home last week. Bert is now superintending double tracking the Milwaukee road in Illinois. Charlie Rist and his oldest daughter came up from Hampton for Christmas. Charlie has been located there over a year and is doing well. Will H. Walker is home for a few days.

Dr. Morse spent Sunday with his father at Des Moines. Coming home Monday morning the train was stopped by the snow, and from Ames two engines were needed to get to Eagle Grove. Clark Rice, oldest son of D. Rico of Plum Creek, returned a week ago from a six years' absence in California. He has been in and about San Francisco mainly. He noticed some changes in Algona. Word comes from Earl Tennant, who is at Hot Springs, Ark., that he is improving in health and will entirely recover. Ho has a severe case of catarrh of the stomach, and the doctor assured him that he did not cornet day too soon. _^ action in Kossuth. The legal point involved is that as Mr. Sweeney has been declared insane by t,hn commissioners in Dubuque, and pending an appeal to tho district court has been put in charge of a guardian there, that the Kossulh commissioners have no jurisdiction in the matter, and that he is wrongfully restrained. Mr. Clarke holds that so long as he is in Kossuth and unrestrained that he is properly ir charge of local authorities. The whole case is one to excite interest. Mr Sweeney is an elderly man and well to do. Some six years ago he had a sligh attactof insanity and recovered. Then last May ho was taken again. Ho is not dangerous but inclined to be quarrelsome. He has, however, full possession of his faculties at times and is lighting in tho courts the finding of the insane commissioners and is aided by his brother, who is here. While in his insane condition he was attacked and robbed of a considerable sum of money, and the solicitude of his wife and her friends to have him in custody is as much for his protection as for her own. All the stops in the proceedings here will be closely watched, us they are new to practice of the state. ANOTHER ALGONIAN PROMOTED, l.«T MEMORY OF THB DEAD. A of Mi'H. INliiy Cotton, "\Vhono Dun til wan Ueoorclctl IjttBt AVoofc. Among tho many students at tho nor-mil hcliool in its early years none niado noro friends or won higher regard Lhaii Miss May Cook of Burt. She was a lino scholar, genial and attractive in society. Hor marriage to Norman L. Dolton a your ago promised her a hap- ay and useful life. Tho change which i year brings illustrates auow tho un- ce'rtaintieH which attend all. Tho fol- owlng sketch is handed us by one of Mrs. Cotton's friends: Mrs. May (Cook) Cotton was born at Arlington; Mass., Jan. 22, 1872. With lier parents she removed to Now Hampshire in 1880, and four years later to Burt, Iowa. Was married to Norman L. Cotton of Whlttomore on Christmas eve, 1801, and died Doc. 22, 1892. She was quite a sufferer from Juno last until her death, yet amid all her suffering she was brave and hopeful, and main 1 tained a clear Christian experience, frequently speaking of her faith in God and submission to his will, passing peacefully away like a fading flower. Many of the young people of Algona and vicinity, and teachers of the county will recall May Cook, one of their number at the normal and in the institute. May their spiritual end bo like hers.

Terms, with ITiiB Ui'i'Bii DEB MOINES, $4.20, AV. S. Dorlniid Elected President of the Vlvut National Hanlc of Uluno. The Llano, Texas, News of Dec. 23 has the following note of interest: On Dec. 20 was held a very important meeting of the stockholders and directors of tho First National Bank. The stockholders decided to increase the capital of the bank, which is now $50,000, and declare a dividend of 84 percent. This represents the earnings of the bank for the last two years and must be very gratifying to the stockholder*. At the meeting of the board of directors the following officers were elected: Presl dent, W. S. Dorland; vice-president, F. R. Malone; cashier, S. Duncan. The new president, Mr. Dorland, was formerly cashier. He was one of the principal organizers, and from the lirst has been the executive officer of the bank, and to him is conceded the credit of its present prosperous condition. The friends of the bank will be pleased to learn that with his new office he will retain his old duties. The fortnei president, Mr, Malone, was elected vice-president, which will not change his real function with the bank, which never was that of an active officer.
