The Burt bigamy case, in which the young man Watkins is under arrest, will be tried this term. It is set for today or tomorrow. The Chrismas display in Galbraith's basement and double store is what attracts the crowd. Read his advertisement this week. The school board met Monday evening and accepted B. F. Reed's resignation as a member, on condition that he furnish the oysters. Regular meeting of sons of veterans and election' of. officers next Tuesday evening. All members are requested to be present at 7:30 sharp. Word comes that a Bancroft spouse had. her husband arrested Saturday riight,' but came around Monday and withdrew her complaint. The stallion case between Dingley & Moffat and Madden is set for tomorrow. It involves the question of what damage "cribbing" is to a horse. Don't buy any clothing in Algona till you visit Jas. Taylor's store. He is in the''clothing war." as his announcement this week indicates. We have no particulars of the marriage but a license indicates the union of T. M. Clark, our Fenton pioneer, and Clara Hallott, late Mrs. Watson. The musical entertainment Saturday evening will be first class. The company is one of those guaranteed by the well known Slay ton lyceum bureau. Prof. Chaffee's sister and brother are with him in Algana. The former will be an instructor in the school, while the latter will fit himself for college. • Charlie Winkle says he saw good hay bought in Des Moines last week at $5 a ton by the car load. At the same time hay was bringing $6 loose in Kossuth. E. C. Anderson was down Monday to take out a permit to sell intoxicating liquors. The court granted it on his application. S. Mayne appeared for him. D Judge Cook is up for court. He put in two cars of tile on his farm in Harrison township last fall, and will put in a car load in the spring. He believes in tile. After a long hearing yesterday the court granted a change of'venue in the Hubbard-Rantzovv case, and it will probably be tried in Emmet county Jan. 15. Regular meeting of Algona Chapter, O. E. S., Tuesday evening, Dec. 15 V Let there be a good attendance. Election of officers. Per order of Worthy Matron. * Word has come that B. F. Smith's daughter is very sick at the home of her grandmother in Wisconsin, and so our Ramsayites are kept away longer than they expected. The Odd Fellows elected officers Monday evening, E, S, Salisbury is N. G.; F, L. Parish, V. G.; Henry Mason, secretary; Jas. Orr, permanent secrO' tary; H. J. Edens,' treasurer. Invitations have been received in Algona by the friends of Miss Eva, daughter of Senator Kamrar of Webster City, to attend her wedding, Dec. 16. She is to marry M, H.' Beaumont of Eagle Grove, County Attorney Joslyn gave an oyster supper Monday evening in honor of the assembled legal lights at court. The Thorington house got it up, and everything was first class. A pleasant and social evening was enjoyed by all. Rome Woodworth has gone to Chicago to stay. He has a good position }n a large business house there. He is one of the young men who will come to the front in the business world, and the world is practically in his reach in Chicago, Sheriff Stephens is just back from a two weeks' trip in Dakota and the Black Hills country. He was hunting for a man who was owing Danson Bros., found him, and secured the claim and costs, He had an 80 mile wagon ride out in the hills. R. E. Voorhees is a new resident lately moved from Hancock county. He has bought the A. C. Cady house In the north part of town and is now comfortably located. Mr. Voorhees ia a second cousin of the senator from Indi .ana, whose name is so well known. The pastor of the Baptist church will preach his second sermon on revivals next Sunday evening. He will take up the evangelistic work of Deborah and the prophets Joel, Jonah, and Jeremiah. He hopes in the near future to begin a series of revival services. Cheever Hudson took possession of the D. D. Tpwnsend interest in the gro- rj business, Dec. 1, and the advertisement of the new firm appears this week. Cheever has grown up ia Kossuth and will make a success of his new venture. Mr. Townsend stays with the firm for the time being. A petition to the United States senate asking that our government unite with the* other governments in protecting the Free Congo state from the traffic in alcohol, was circulated in the Al- »ona grange last week and also in the W. C. T. U., and received a large number of signatures. The late receipt of some county correspondence compels us to olnit it. Two notes from Bancroft are: "J. G. Sraham's warehouse caught fire on the inside last week from a defective chimney. Not much loss. A. C. Zellhofer of Eagle Grove will preach at the Baptist church next Sabbath." The first three days of December are said to decide what the three winter months will be. They were Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of last week and all mild, thawing days. Accord- ly December, January, and February will be mild, rainy months, if there is mything in this weather signal. Cards are out for the marriage of L. S. Walker of Estherville and Miss Delia Reed of Irvington, which occurs next Tuesday evening. Mr. Walker is high up in the employ the Burlington road, and a popular railway man. He was formerly on the Northwestern, and made Miss 'Reed's acquaintance while there. Emmetsburg is organizing as a city of the second class. When the first vote is counted in the incorporation it will show about 100 less than the papers were claiming this fall by counting in the returns of two townships. Spencer and the "Burg" don't make anything by bragging on figures they get in that way. A double marriage at the Boals home last Thursday united W. W. Platt and Mary C. Boals, Rachel M. Voorhees and Manuel H. Boals. A party of friends and relatives were present and the occasion was enjoyable to all. The young people are all well known, and have the best wishes of a host 6f their friends. We are called upon to congratulate Ed. Lyons this week. His old Algona friends will read with interest the following in the Eagle Grove Gazette: "Mr. and Mrs. E. H. Lyons have a new ten-pound boy at their home." Ed is now occupying a good position in the Northwestern offices, and owns a fine home in Eagle Grove. The Rolfe Sun says: Assistant State Veterinary Surgeon E. E. Sayers of Algona made a professional call in Marshall township on Monday to investigate a case or two of glandered horses. He informed the writer that they were chronic cases of catarrh, instead of glanders, and were doing as well as could be expected. The new German Lutheran church, which has been going up in Plum Creek, will be ready for dedication before the new year. It is a building costing $1,800, 30 by 50 feet with an 80 foot tower. McMurray & Seastream have done the carpenter work. The church stands a few rods north of A. L. Seeley's home, ncross the road from Fred Miller's farm, The following note in the Sioux City Journal has local interest: The history section of the Unity club meets in regular session in the parlors of Unity church this evening. A. F. Call will give the paper on "Magna Charta." There will be discussions on the character of John and other subjects connected with the topic of the evening. Although the record of marriage licenses showed that no such marriage could have taken place, the Republican last week published a report of a pretended marriage of Seymour Allen and Miss Bowman, the parties to the suit with Rantzow and Hubbard. Allen visited the office, and our contemporary will apologize this week for being so previous. The Young Ladies' Foreign Mission- ai-y society will give an entertainment at the court house next Tuesday evening, at which Dr. Li Wing of Yang Chow, Chihft, Ramabai of Lucknow, India, Aisheh Kaadin of Constantinople, Turkey, and Katsu Kimura of Nagasaki, Japan, will be present in person or by proxy. It will be a novel and interesting entertainment. Charlie Winkle went down to Des Moines last week and sold his heavy dray wagon. He had no use for one so heavy and will get a light one in the spring. This is the wagon that was taken to Humboldt to haul some monuments for the cemetery there, as there was no wagon heavy enough in the county. Charlie got $200 for the dray, which is some less than it cost when new. Rev. Hughes^ state agent of American Bible society, preached in the Methodist church Sunday morning, held a children's meeting in the afternoon, and in the evening preached at a union service in the interests of the society. The local society held its annual election of officers, D. B, Ayey being chosen president; Jas. Chapin, secretary; E. Tellier, treasurer, and Miss C. T. Dodd, librarian. The city council held a special meeting Monday morning to make a final stand on the city well case. Mr. Stephens had offered to settle at $800, and finally dropped to $700. The council had offered $500, and at this meeting had raised to $600, but the $100 between them proved a final stumbling block. The council would not go up and Mr. Stephens would not come down, and the case will come on tomorrow. A cheeky forgery occurred in town last week. A traveling man appeared at the Frst National bank and presented a check on Chicago. The cashier told him to get someone to identify him and he brought in a business man in town who signed the check with him. On sending the paper to Chicago it was declared a forgery and came back. The Algona indorser promptly put up the money and the matter will be investigated. The name of the endorser is not public, but the facts are as stated. A.curious accident occured to Theo. Goeders last week. He and his father and nephew, the little son of our merchant, went walking, the boy carrying an air gun that shoots bullets. The two older ones were ahead when the gun went off and the bullet hit Theodore m the hip penetrating about two inches. Dr. Barr extracted the missel and no serious damage is done, but the bullet in a vital part would have killed Mr. Goeders. This shows that these air guns are dahierous as any, and should be handled with, caution. C. A. Brewstor reports a circumstance worthy of note. Last year he bought two snort horn heifers at L. S. Coffin's Ft. Dodge sale, and both had been dehorned. He now has calves from both and neither calf has had appearance of horns. The sire is a horned bulK One case might be accounted for us a freak, but two together seem to indicate that dehorning will speedily result in a naturally polled short horn breed. Mr. Brewster also got a full- blood bull at that sale and has some fine stock growirig. The many friends of the brilliant and genial W. E. Morrison will look with interest to the letter which he promises us next week on his experience with the Keeley cure. He says: " I shall confine myself to the simple truth, and I know that this will be sufficiently sensational. I have just been elected chairman of the Bt-Chloride of Gold Club of the World. The club is now incorporated under the laws of Illinois and branches will soon be established throughout the country. I will write you next week". The number who will rejoice at his recovery is only limited by his acquaintance in Kossuth county. Last summer a premium egg wns laid on our table, and remained in unsuspected prominence long after suspicion had grown to a certainty that a rat must have crawled under the floor and died. And now the alternating frosts at night and the heat of our eoul stove in the day have been found to have affected our prize potato, so that our visitors suspect that the sumo rat had died again. Wo are glad to have prize exhibits of the county's product, but we cannot agree to keep them on display more than a week at the oulfeido hereafter. We shall fire them after that on general principles. The Courier says the county has suffered from lack of vigorous criminal prosecutions, and then names a few cases where $750' by its own figures were collected in fines, besides costs. We print elsewhere the records of some of the Courier's ideal counties like Woodbury where the costs have been $38,000 out of the people and the fines collected $1,300. Will the Courier take its champion county of Dubuquo and tell the people how many liquor fines are collected there, together with costs? What ails the Courier is that the liquor sellers were fined at all. The prosecutions have been too vigorous. Quite an important business deal is rumored on the streets. It seems that Messrs. Rice & Hay of Iowa Falls wore in Algona some time ago and secured options on the abstract books of C. M. Doxsee, W. H. Nycum, and A. D. Clarke & Co. These close Jan. 1, and the new men are on the ground to complete their contracts. Mr. Rice has rented the C. D. Creed house and is locating his family already. This deal if carried out will leave only two abstract offices, Jones & Smith not having sold. The new men have been in the employ of the big real estate finn of Ellsworth & Jones of Iowa Falls, and are first class business men. Ellsworth & Jones are large owners of Kossuth lands. Algona is probably permanently free of Cluis. Stewart, the bootlegger who was held to appear at this -term of court. A first he was under bonds, but his bondsmen turned him over to Sheriff Stephens and took back his security, d Mr. Stephens brought him before the justice. Stewart wanted to hunt up more bail, and the justice let him out on his own recognizance, and in looking for bail he wandered over the state line. As he cannot be secured in another state for selling liquor here, it is not probable that he will venture into Iowa again. In connection with his case, in view of a lot of campaign stories, it is worth while stating that Sheriff Stephens did not put up bonds for Stewart, We take the liberty of clipping paragraphs from two recentpersonal letters. One is from a recent Algonian, who writes: "We have just received the last issue of your paper, and your editorial on the results of the recent election in Iowa is so exactly in harmony with what some of us old Algonians have been talking all the fall, that I feel it almost a duty to compliment you on the plainness, as well as the truth- fullness of your remarks," The other is from a prominent republican editor of the state: "I think THE UPPER DES MOINES has greatly improved the past year, and I have been particularly disposed to admire the hard sense of your comments on the result of the late election." We are called upon this week to cord a sad case of domestic infelicity. Mr. and Mrs. Maine of Plum Creek have decided to part. The UPPER DES MOINES sympathized with Mr. Maine during the weeks of suspense while ha was advertising for a wife, and rejoiced a few months ago when his long search resulted in success. But now the whole thing is undone, and Mrs. Maine goes to Sibley to make her permanent home with her sister. The first occasion of difference arose over a tombstone for Mrs. Maine's former husband, and the little rift widened until twc hearts beating as one had distinct and separate pulsations. We are not in' formed whether Mr. Maine will adver Use again or not, but presume he will recall that old and tried motto " try, try again."
