The Knights of Pythias install officers Friday evening. 11 During 1892 there have been 146 mar- ridge licenses issued. The Odd "Fellows have important business tomorrow evening. A bouncing new farmer boy arrived at A. L. Beltou's Monday evening. Call & Cowles have moved their offices to the second floor of the opera . block. Tho Y. L. F.

Clark has moved his justice .office to the second floor in the opera house block. Jo. Cordingley is putting a meat market in the Heise building on Thorington street. Word came Monday that David Sample was a little better. He is very ' low and his recovery is doubtful. Olof Johnson is back from Superior, where he has worked the past summer. He has had all he could do at good wages. Winkel Bros, sold their. trotter, " Byron Sherman" in Chicago a short time ago. We have not learned what he brought. Mr. Haley, who has spent the season superintending the opera house work, went home last week. The carpenters are about done. C. B. Matson has severed his relations with Dingley & Moffatt and will office with J. W. Sullivan over Langdon & Hudson's store. A. W. Moffatt is ' the new superintendent of the Congregational Sunday school, Geo. Horton secretary and Mabel Smith librarian. W. J. Studley, our new druggist, is located with his family in the house formerly occupied by J. B. Hoflus. His store will soon be opened. John Longbottom was over Friday long enough to say that he had better corn this year than ho has ever had but once since he came to Kossuth. The adjourned December term meets next Wednesday. Judge Carr will come over and finish up the business that was left at the last session. Ed. Weller, a brakeman on tho Milwaukee road, smashed his thumb Sunday in coupling up at the depot. Dr. McCoy was called and fiixed him up. W. W. Alcorn says the milk in the Seneca creamery tested 4.8 per cent, last month. That means over five pounds of butter to 100 pounds of milk. Bert. Edmonds last week took the bicycles of Dr. Morse, Thos. F. Cooke and Jake Freeh to Des Moines withrhim to put pneumatic tires on them."" The grand jury of Buena Vista county meets next Monday. G. L. Button's fence supply deal comes up before them. He was bound over in $500 bonds by the justice. The new board elected Senator Chubb chairman. He presides with dignity, and will be at the head of one of the best lot of supervisors the county has ever had, A. A. Brunsori's last offiicial act as clerk was to grant a marriage license, and B. F, Grose's first was also to grant a license. The two were only a couple of hours apart. Marriage licenses have been issued to A. Butterfield and Sarah L. Gould, Peter Copesins an4 Mary Juckem, Erik J. Dale and Carrie J. Skoaar, Albert A • i Bart and Anna Maron. Glen. Brunson is assisting in Clerk Grose's office, Recorder Randall will be assisted by his daughter, and Auditor Doxsee will have his brother from Rolfe for an assistant. Geo, Bailey is helping him now. . Bancroft is figuring on getting the Iowa State band to give a concert in the new hall before long. There is no better musical organization west of Chicago, and a big crowd should turn put if the plan succeeds. Word came last week that the mother of C, P. and W, S. Dorland has died recently in Colifornia. Many in Algona met her while she was here and will regret to learn of her death. She was a very estimable woman. Rev. Sanderson of Emmetsburg de- J ivered his lecture to a large audience it Bancroft last week, and stopped at Ugona on his return long enough to ake in our new buildings. He is meet- ng with great successs in the lecture K jfield. 3$j Architect Carter, who planned the BJ Call opera house, has just finished the dans for one in Minneapolis to seat 1,400 people. It will be built in the ipringand will cost $200,000. As an krchitect Mr, Carter has no superiors .n. his line. The school board met last week and jlected all the present teachers for the maining two terms of the present lar. On account of Dr, Barr's trip to .e coast he resigned the presidency DO j the board, and w. H. Ingham was win,«sea I Q jjts place. _. A.

They went like hot cakes, and now there is a big demand for more. They are very handsome and will prove a handsome souvenir of the greatest celebration this generation will ever witness. The new railroad up north has got along to the dignity of station agents. The agents are as follows: Mr. W. J. Hummer, at Thompson; Mr. J. A. •Cady, at Buffalo Center; Mr, S. Dye, at Germania; Mr, C. A. Thompson, at Reynolds; Mr. H. G. Adams, at Armstrong. A letter from T. Early, dated Dec. 28, says: "J. J. Wilson was here yesterday but I did not see him as I was away on business. Also Mr. Bronson is spending a few weeks with us and I presume if he spends two weeks with us that means he will come here and stay for good." A letter from Rome Woodworth to a friend last week announced, that he is to have charge of the exhibit of Stevens threshing machines, etc., at the worl'd's fair this summer. Rome will be equal to the job, and his friends here will be pleased to know that he has so good a one. The Ladies Aid society of the M. E. church will meet with Mrs. Dau on Friday afternoon and evening. Sleighs will be provided for all wishing to go. One or more will start from E. J. Gilmore's store at 3, 4 and 5 o'clock. Come and have a good sleighrido and supper for 16 cents. The Congregational church Monday extended a call to Rev. Davidson fqr three years, instead of for one as heretofore. This makes his relations to the church much more permanent, and is very complimentary to him. L. J. Rice was elected church treasurer and Mrs. Jas. Patterson clerk. Letters remain uncalled for in the Algona postoffice for Mrs. A. T. Clark, E' C. Dawes, H. Horace, Dana J. Hubbard, Edward Lawrence. H. C. Madison, A. H. Maxwell, Mrs. Sigri Olson, Earnest Springer, Frederick Stainer, Ruth Sweet, Adelmar Tuttle, Mrs. S. J. Wheaton, Miss Anna Wahlers. The Ackley Enterprise tells about O. G. Fill's cure of the whiskey and morphine habit, and adds this note: "This wonderful success points to a probable Keeley cure establishment at Algona under the special supervision of Drs. Kenefick and Pride. We know Dr. Keneiick with pride. He was- raised among us." Beginning next Sunday morning, Jan. 3, the Congregational pastor will preach a series of sermons, which aim to throw light on the meaning of life. The subjects will be, Translation, Gratification, Obligation, Incarnation, Re_presentation, Liberation, Regeneration, Elevation, Next Sunday morning a sermon on Translation. While up last week Bert Edmonds said that he would very soon begin gymnasium work for next year's bicycle races, and go into regular training early in the spring. Bert will try and see what he can do this summer and if he don't make a close call for the first place his friends will lose their guess. He is looking well, and his firm in Des Moines are having all they can do. The opera house decorator says the frescoing will be done in two weeks. Edwin Blackford has ordered the draperies and will soon order the carpets, the grange store having the contract to furnish both. The lamps and seats are here, and the contract for the scenery calls for it to be in by Jan. 15. It looks now as though it would be ready to open by the last of the month, surely, Barnet Devine seems to be still troubled with mental derangement, and his friends have been considering the advisability of putting him in an asylum. He has spells when it is quite difficult to control him. This is a serious affliction coming to our pioneer at his advanced age, and his failure to rally from it suggests that he may have ended his active business career. Mr. Divine is one of the wealthiest men in northern Iowa. B. F, Smith has been invited to read a paper before the annual meeting of the Chester White breeder's of the United States at Indianapolis next week Thursday. He is planning to attend and will discuss the question whether there should be blue spots or black spots on the true Chester White, which he answers by saying that there should be no spots at all. Our Ramsay breeder is recognized everywhere as a leading breeder. Union township observed Christmas in fine style at the Frink school house with a big tree and plenty of presents, An interesting feature was the celebration of the 15th anniversary of the wedding of Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Hall. Rev. J, Cooke, who married the couple first, was present to renew the vows for them, and all the neighbors gathered with presents and good wishes. It was a pleasant occasion and heartily enjoyed by all. Our postoffloe is expecting a supply of the new world's fair postage stamps. The stamps are broader than they are long, being about the shape of the special delivery stamp. They are of a lilac tint and their face bears a fine engraving of the "Landing of Columbus," and title, with tho dates 1492 and 1802 to the right and left. The stamps are quite handsome. The picture which graces the Columbian stamp was taken from the original painting by John Canderlin, who died in 1853. Algona has a new dentist who is at present located in the Ferguson-Hoxie block. The Richland, Wis., Rustic says: ''Dr. E. S. Glasier departed for his new field of labor Thursday evening, and carries with him the respect and good will of all who have come in contact with him, either in a social or business way. Mr. Glasier is well up in dentistry, and we bespeak for him a large practice in his new home." Dr. Giasier will receive a hearty welcome in Algona, and should build up a good business. .-. The first official act of the new clerk, auditor and recorder was to elect a member of the. board of supervisors. G. H. Peters, who has gone to California, sent his resignation from there, and in his place B. P. Smith was agreed upon and duly elected, He was gwomtJ n with C. 0- Chubb and W, J. Buptpq t once tooJk his place Ofljb,e boapd, will wake, a and be alive to the interests of the county. G. H. PeterS, whose place he takes, was a good member and all will regret that he does not intend to return to the county. The latest political gossip is that an active effort will really ,be made to get Phil. Hanna's place for G. W. Skinner of Bancroft. Our Bancroft friend is in the field and expects to go to Washing ton March 4 and camp on the ground. The county has a claim established to the La Guayra position, and if Bro. Skinner is the man THE UPPER DES MOINKS will lend all the assistance it can without having its attention called away from the Algona postofflce. Thi of course is a prior matter andjrequires constant watching. The Campus quartette of the Minnc* sota university sang to a large audience in the Congregational church last Thursday evening and gave a very pleasant entertainment. .They are exceptionally good musicians, and their selections suited all. At the close of the programme a reception was tendered them by their fellow students at Dr. McCoy's home, and an enjoyable evening was spent. The quartette talks of visiting Algona again next summer when we can receive them in the new opera house. On Monday County Clerk Brunson, Auditor Holius, Recorder Smith, and County Attorney Joslyn all stepped down and out, and the new officials received the " Happy New Year" greet ings. We believe that it is a common opinion that each and all have been competent, obliging, and painstaking in their work, and that the county has had excellent service at their hands. They have maintained the record Kossuth has established of having its business better attended to than the a_ver- age private business of its citizens is. Company F is now inspecting available material for a new set of commissioned officers. Ca.pt. Edens and Lieut. Cohinour have both tendered their resignations on account of leaving Algona, and Lieut. Chubb will also resign, as he expects to be away for some time. No orders have been received for a new election but one will be called soon, no doubt. The boys should get good officers who will keep the company up, for it is a good thing for the young men, especially this year when it will bo called to Chicago for two or more weeks. R. M. Richmond was down Monday with his petition to have Reynolds changed to Swea City. The board wanted to name it Swea, but there still being a postoffice by that title it could not be done, so Swea City was adopted. This preserves the old name of the first settlement in that section, and Reynolds, after a brief but glorious career, takes its place in the annals along with Cresco and Ashuelot. Mr. Richmond proposes to have Swea City one of the big towns of the county, and it certainly is started that way now. Long life to Swea City. \ Seeing the beaver traps found in Buffalo Fork recalled a curious incident to John Reed yesterday. Some years ago he cut a hard maple tree on his farm for wood, and in cutting it up he found a place where it had been chopped when a small tree. The opening had all grown over, but it was plainly marked and counting the rings that had formed outside of it, and allowing one year for each one, the first chopping was done in 1834. Every mark of the ax was plainly visible and the stick a great curiosity. If its evidence proved anything it was that someone was up in this region at a very early day with an ax. '." The poultry rooms at the Boardman creamery have pr-esented a lively sight for some weeks past. Some days there have been 33 men picking, and Saturday there were 28. They turn out 1000 turkeys a day an_d when they are on chickens they pick many more. As turkeys have been bringing nine cents live weight, they have averaged over$l apiece which means that the poultry bill is quite an item to the county, The boys use a patent sticker for killing the birds, which seems to work in pretty good shape. E, G. Ball, a brother-in-law of M. Stephens, is now bookkeeper for the establishment, and assists Mr. Blossom in the work of keeping up this important establishment, The Sweeney insanity case was disposed of last week by our commissioners turning Mr. Sweeney over to his guardian with a sharp reprimand to the latter for allowing him to wander off. He took him in charge and returned to Dubuque at once. There was no question in the minds of our board of Mr. Sweeney's insanity, and he has been found insane by the Dubuque board, so that the report sent out by the Republican that he is being imposed on by his wife and her relatives was not only wholly unfounded but gratuitously malicious. The Wernert family are well and favorably known hereabouts, and are entitled to a fair consideration in the painful circumstances in which they are placed. Mr, Sweeney's final hearing comes up soon in Dubuque. Jefferson hall in Bancroft was formally opened last Thursday evening with a grand ball, at which 26 young people from Algona were present, most of them going in sleighs. The night was just right for the ride, and everything at Bancroft was arranged for pleasant entertainment. The hall was large, excellently lighted, and the floor—but our reporter has said nothing about the floor. Sheriff Graham was master of ceremonies, while Thos, Sherman, Josh. Campbell and the rest saw to it that nothing was wanting. Bancroft has a good public hall, costing about $1,500, with plenty of stage room and some excellent scenery; and is prepared for any entertainment that comes along. Billy Marble is booked to play there for the opening performance. Miss NELLIE HAMILTON will do dress making at her home on Thorington street. Cutting from measurments by a method of her own invention. No system, no model, no charts.-89t3 Two BRAHMA roosters for sale; from prize stock. John G. Smith.-41t2 C«ol, Coal.

THIS IS HOW WE GROW, The Improvements in Alffona in 1892 are a Source of Wonder and Oar Chief Delight, The New Opera House, the State Bank, the A. D. Clarke Block, Ferguson- Hoxie Block, etc., etc. Algona has none but kind words for 1892. The old year departs with our blessings. It pretty nearly saw us brick and pretty nearly leaves us mai;- ble. It has ushered in improvements that no one dreamed we should see in ten years, improvements that are ten years ahead of the average Iowa town of our size. Whereas before we could brag only of our residences, now it is our business streets we show. And 1893 comes to us with promises of developments yet to be. It has been a year to be proud of and if anyone in Algona is not proud of it ho has not been heard from. THE UPPER DES MOINES has not been very careful to catalogue all that has been done but a few salient points are worthy of review. And saving the best till the last let us see what minor matters have arisen to cause us to be proud. The town has spent $3,000 in laying water mains, and during the year the people have discovered that our city water is the best there is, and everybody now wants to get a hydrant. The sewer company has put $1,300 into a deep sewer made of 16 inch vitrified sewer pipe which will servo more than one-fourth of tho town with city sewerage. The independent district has spent $1,000 in putting the best equipment into the normal building that is found in any school in Iowa, and tho school during the year has doubled in attendance. The grand army have received a 12 pounder brass cannon, whose bona fide echoes have served to arouse enthusiasm on several occasions. Ben. Winkle has put in a first-class Studebaker street sprinkler with a 28 foot sweep. Lund & Nelson have a thorough-bred Chicago milk wagon on tho streets. Tennant & Son have put in a brand new bus with a hard coal stove in it, and they and tho Rutherford house both added fine new carryalls. The Northwestern road in honor of the general slicking up has moved its stock yards to a side street, and put handsome steel bridges all through town in place of the wooden ones. From these side items the general tendency can be seen. The substantial additions deserve more extended notice. THE CALL OPERA BLOCK. So far,-3Js the public is concerned the new opera house is the greatest addition of the year, and when it is completed, will be the most metropolitan of anything we have. The total cost of the building will reach $20,000, in addition to which the company managing it have let contracts for over $1,400 for scenery, draperies, etc. The building is 47x124 feet, three stories high. The opera hall is 47x90 in the clear, the ceiling 36 feet. The stage is 30 feet deep_, curtain opening 30 feet, and the seating capacity 600. The steam heating outfit cost $1,800 and the frescoing $1,000. The whole work was planned by one of the best special architects in the west, and the hall will be equal to any in the state in equipment. It is safe to say that no town of the size in the United States has a finer opera hall. j THE ALGONA STATE BANK BUILDING. In the way of a business building this takes precedence. One front is of Lake Superior brown sand stone, the other of Sioux Falls granite and pressed brick with brown stone trimming?. The total cost is $20,000. The building is heated by a $2,000 hot water plant, and the interior of the bank will equal anything in the state. The wood work is red oak, natural finish in oil, and is done in the most elaborate style. A safety deposit vault, and all the modern conveniences are being put in, and it is safe to say that no better building of its size has been built in Iowa during the year. THE NEW CATHOLIC CHURCH. This new addition of the year is about completed except in the altars and pews which are still to be added. It is 45x90 feet, with a 28i foot ceiling, and a tower 105 feet high, the highest in the city. The cost is $8,000, and the building very handsome. The windows are all memorials contributed by relatives of deceased Catholics, and are of very handsome design. THE NEW BAPTIST CHURCH. The beauty of this addition is due to T, H, Conner whose plans have been carefully carried out. The audience room is 46x46, with 225 seats. The parlor is 46x30, class room 12x22, study 12x20, choir room 6x18 and robing room 8x18, The total cost will exceed $6,000. THE BUTTER TUB FACTORY. The building which this new manufacturing industry occupies is 28x60 feet two stories with an addition 12x28. The new machinery is about in place, and will be run by a 15 horse power engine and 20 horse power boiler. The capacity will be 300 tubs a day, and tho plant costs $5,000. There are four men at work now and by March from eight to twelve \vill be occupied all the time. THE FERGUSON-HOXIE BLOCK. This is a double flout of pressed brick and stone with two stores below and offices above very handsomely finished and costing $7,000. The plans were drawn by Mr. Conner. THE A. D. CLARKE BLOCK. This also is a double front of pressed brick and cost $5,500. The plans were drawn by Mr. Conner and have resulted in a very attractive addition. THE NEW NICOULIN HOME. The handsomest residence of the year is Frank Nicoulin's, which, ranks up with the beet of Algona's many fln,e ones. It is finished throughout in hard, wood, the parlor ta Wrfifl ' " l« Oftfc Ml is and finish be a handsome ornament to Algona. THE JOHNSON MACHINE WARE HOUSE. This building finished with iron in imitation of brick has cost $2,500, and is 60x60 feet two stories high. IN GENERAL. The Rutherford house has added a building 22x00 feet with a largo sample room, and ] 1 bed rooms; besides making changes in the old house. The Tennant house has had a two story addition 28x35 feet built on, furnishing 10 rooms and a big sample room; and besides has a new barn added. .T. M. Cowan has built two very handsome residences in the east part ; of town costing $1,200 each. J. J. Wilson has doubled the capacity of his grain ek-Vator at the Milwaukee depot by adding a 24x40 part two stories high, built, in the latest elevator style. Ostrum Bros., brick yards have had a now kiln added with a capacity of 125,000 brick. Also new sheds for drying and in all now have a $6,000 plant. They have made this year 600,000 brick. Wm. Bossingham has a largo now house in the west part of town. John Paul & Co. have built a new lumber shed 100 foot, long' two stories high, and otherwise fitted up their yard. J. R. Litird has entirely rebuilt his house making an improvement worth $2,000 and having now one of the most convenient homes in tho city. The Hamilton lumber yard hns a new office and expensive machinery. Marv. Cady has a now home costing $1,000. D. W. King hns rebuilt and refitted the McMurray house, and R. J. Hunt has put a large addition 'on the Townsend house. A new iron gate him been added to the cemetery, and the $2,000 Call vault been completed. The. line granite Galbraith monument and others have been erected. G. L. Galbraith has built tho two new store rooms on the Ford corner. Dr. Morse has rebuilt and remodeled the house ho now owns, and made it into a very attractive place. J. F. Nicoulin has extended the store room occupied by Henry Winkic 30 feet. K The capacity of the ice house has been doubled. D. H. Hutchins has put an expensive now front into the Durdall store, Peter Purvis has refitted the store Stough is in, and O. Minkler has refitted the store Chandler is in. Ladendorff's restaurant has been remodeled. Mrs. Wheelock's homo has been enlarged, and additions have been made to C. M. Doxsee's, Frank Winkel's, E. N. Weaver's, and W. W. Johnson's. Fred. Paine, Lewis Hagg, Frank Donovan, O. P. Anderson, Hugh Herman, Mrs. Schichtl and A. Lattimer have comfortable new houses. • John G. Smith has a new set of scales, A. Hough a new coal office, and dozens of people new barns. Last but not least old man Roberts is building a house for each of his sons, and Algona is likely to acquire them all'as part of the boom of 1892. IN CONCLUSION. No attempt has been made to give an estimate of the value of our year's improvements in money. It is enough to say that they exceed any previous year's record. And even then it is not their cost that is half so important as their character. No previous year has begun to equal 1892 in the importance of its improvements. Algona has made a growth the past year that changes the whole character of the place. And the best of it is 'that enough new improvements are already assured for, 1893 to make sure of a big addition in the near future. Kossuth county is booming, and Algona is bound to keep up with the procession. Welcome to the new year. HOLIDAY Albanians a t Spokane, Wash., Remember Their Old ITrlondB.

Christensen, " » Abraham Lincoln, When leaving his home at Springtteld, 111., to be inaugurated president of the United States, made a farewell address to his old friends and neighbors in which he said, "Neighbors, give your boys a c-hnace." These words come with as much force today as they did thirty years ago. How give them this chance? Up iu the northwest is a great empire waiting for young and sturdy fellows to come and develop it end " grow up with tho country." All over this broad land are the young fellows, the boys.that Lincoln referred to, seeking to better their condition and get on in life. Here is their climice 1 The country referred to lies along the Northern Pacific railway. Here you can find pretty much anything you want. In Minnesota, and in the Red River valley of North Dakota the finest of prairie lauds fitted for wheat and grain, pr as well for diversified; farming. In western North Dakota an.<l Mouto>» are stock ranges limitless iu extent, clothed with the mos$ ftuMttous of grasses. If a fruit farmiugre^tevpM ftorafc tfee.

To cap the climax this is the only way to reach the far-famed Yellowstone pnrk. To reach and SKC all this the Northern Pacific railroad furnishes trains and service of unsurpassed excellence. The most approved and comfortable palace sleeping cars; tho best dining cars that can be made; Pullman tourist cars good for both first and second-class passengers; easy riding day coaches, with baggage, express, and postal cars, all drawn by powerful Baldwin locomotives, mnlto a train fit for royalty itself.
