Our new dentist, Dr. Glasier, visits Bancroft and Whittemore. Rev. DeForest preaches in the Episcopal church next Sunday. M. Z. and Guy Grove are nicely lo- >,cated in their new quarters. {i 'Revival meetings are being held this |week at the Methodist church. Supper at the Congregational church i tomorrow evening. All invited. Dr. Barr has written home about a ipear which made a six quart pan of [sauce. f f The scenery for the opera house arrived yesterday. There are several i*dray loads of it. .4 Sam. Kobs is back in the New Eng- Jftnd store, having recovered from a fit ipf sickness at Blue Earth. The sale of seats for the opera house --ring comes Friday, Feb. 3, at 2 ick at the opera house. Jf Our new drug store is open and is iVery handsomely fitted. Mr. Studley |has put in some fine furniture. , The installation of officers of the fgrand army occurs this evening. R. [F. Hedrick is the new commander. i Rumors are cm-rent that some new /bricks are to go in east of the postofflce •this spring. Several fronts are talked of. Recorder Randall is working day and night and is behind with transfers. The business was never heavier than it is now. While all the other decorating has s been going on Sharp's shoe shop hue r, been modestly improved. New paper * is the chief attraction. Geoeders' clearing sale lasts fifteen Fj days. He never advertises bargains Aimless he has them, and it will pay Guilders to visit his sale. The back doors to Carter's store room were put in the past week, after the cold snap had passed. He is now ready for anything that comes. Adolf Friday, the old hand at the Wigwam, is down from Minneapolis on a visit. He is on the street car line be- tw'e'eh Minneapolis and St. Paul. The new desk in the auditor's office tnakes a great change for the better in it. Bro. Crose also has a new stand- ift'g desk which is an improvement. Charley Kuhn after ten years of married life is the proud father of a boy, who arrived last week. Even that prize colt has to take a back seat now at the Kuhn farm, C. B. Hutchins got his thumb in his •windmill machinery in some way last week and had that important member badly torn. Dr. Morse patched it up, and it is getting better. A new sign indicates that Fred. Waterhouse is now sole proprietor of the Algona cigar factory. The business is prosperous, and when the new brick goes up in the spring he will have a fine establishment. The opera chairs for the Baptist church will be shipped this week and other material for the finishing of the edifice will be here soon. The near future will tell the story of a completed and dedicated church. Letters remain uncalled for in the Algona postoffioe for C. M. Brooks, A. H. Caulkins, W. A. Christy, E. O. Dawes, J. Goldsmith & Bro., Herman Krause, Miss Sarah Larson, Edward Miller, Miss Annie Ostrom, F, Stowell, Geo. E. .Clarke and J, G. Graham went to Chicago Saturday to make final irrangements for a settlement of the claims against the railway company for the injuries suffered by Mrs. Graham. We understand that $3,000 has been offered. E. R. Cook of Burt was a pleasant caller last week and told us several in- jeresting stories about Gen. Benj. F. Butler. Mr. Cook lived in his district ind knew all about him in Massachu- ietts. He is not an admirer of the general. The annual meeting of the county agricultural society is called for Saturday, Feb. 4. Officers are to be elected ind arrangements begun for next fall's air. Every farmer in the county hould attend and assist in making a ;ood beginning for the year. The editors go to Eagle Grove _ to- norrow for their semi-annual meeting. Mday evening J. H. Keatly delivers in address, and the citizens tender a banquet. It will be a pleasant affair, j.nd it is expected that all Kossuth cnights of the quill will be present. J. O. Paxson is one of the lucky ones who will always remember the year of )ig hog prices. He brought in two 20- months-old pigs last week and got $71.54 or them. He had ten others, and all jrought $239.80. They were a nice bunch of hogs, and that is a nice bunch of money. A flock of prairie chickens flew between Goeders' and Galbraith's build- ngs last Thursday evening goingsouth. They were going low enough to be look- ng for somebody, but didn't stop. We admire their discretion in picking put Dodge street as long as they were going ;o take in the town. The Algona club room reading table will after this week have Puck, Judge, The Illustrated American, The Review of Reviews, The Book Buyer, Romance, Carpers'Weekly, The Chicago Graphic, and Goldthwaites' Geographical Magazine. Ladies invited at all times, and ispecially Friday evenings. "Gloriana" is billed at Omaha's lead- ng theatre for next week. TheOmaha Bee says: " One of the most welcome attraction that will come to Boyd's theatre this season is Chas. Frohman's comedians in James Mortimer's noted ;hree-act English farce, 'Gloriana,' which will be seen here on Monday and Tuesday next." C. B. Matson and Will Brunson went to hear Stuart Robson in Chicago and .isked for two good tickets. "Three dollars each," was the ticket man's response. While Robson is a star actor Iris company is not, more highly cpm- mended than Frohman's companies, one of the best of which is to open the lall opera house. B. F. Smith was down from Ramsay with a cousin from Chicago last week, looking up the prospects for getting the driving park track for a horse training ground this summer, Ben.'s cousin is an expert and will bring a half dozen horses with him, besides braining local stock. It is to be hoped that an arrangement can be made, and our track kept in use. Fred. Hugh is a lucky young man. And unlike the generality of the race he had his luck when he needed it. Last week he had 27 hogs for sale and they happened to be needed to fill a car. In the rivalry he got $7.55 a hundred, probably as high a price as was ever paid in Algona. His hogs netted him P503.62, enough for a good payment on his farm near the church in Plum Creek. It is rumored that the now fast train on the Milwaukee road is to go on about Feb. 1, which if true will bring a new time table very soon. It is unlikely, however, in view of the trouble in running what trains are already on the track that any change will be made before snow goes. The new train is to leave Algona for the east about 5 o'clock, arriving in Chicago in the morning. There will be a meeting of the W. C. T. U. and reading room association on Friday at 3 o'clock, in the reading room. Every member is earnestly requested to bo present, as the question, " What shall we do this year?" will have to be settled. Shall we all join together as a library association, or shall we continue as we are and do as we' have done the past year? Will every member try to be present? A. L. Seeley was in last week, and in talking about the traps discovered in the Buffalo he said that in 1859 two men, one of whom was named MoBee, came from Forest City. They had a lot of traps and a kettle, and nothing else. He thinks they may have been the owners of these that have been found. He says the traps then represented over $200, and that the average trapper would not like to.lose them, It is rumored with some deftniteness that w. J, and Glen. Brunson are arranging to put an Uncle Tom's "-'' I .,„„!, company on the road. The boys do not 'ully confirm the report, but if their jlans all succeed may open about May If they decide to go into it we have no doubt of their success. They are areful figurers and good business managers, and have had some experience. We have not learned whether any of our local artists will go as "Topsies," ''Lawyer Marks," etc., or not. Our columns are kept pretty busy ,heso days with news of consuls, who at one time or another wore fitted for their work in Kossuth. This week we give Prof. O. H. Baker's account of his rip to Copenhagen, where he is located to represent the American eagle, le undoubtedly acquired, while president of Algona college, the peeulicir qualifications which have secured him this high honor. In any event his old Kossuth friends will enjoy his ac- :ount of his voyage. The social union club held a very en- Joyable meeting Friday evening. Thos. ?. Cboke described in an interesting manner the new improvements in rifles which have lately been made, and Rev. Davidson gave a very original and en- iertaining account of what a mirror told. Miss Maggie Haggard's decla- nation was finely rendered, one of the jest yet given. Misses Maud and Kate Smith played an instrumental duet, the church choir sang a quartette, and Mrs. Doxsee and Miss Wolf played a piano duet. The next meeting comes on Feb. 17. We publish a quite exteud_ed account of the Miles Sweney insanity case at Dubuque this week. It is one of the most remarkable ever tried in the state. The latest move was made on Monday, when the plaintiffs asked Judge 1\ ; jy to take it away from the jury and try it himself. Counsel for defense said they would have had no objections to this at the start, but ;hought the motion came too late in the day. The court intimated he would grant the motion yesterday morning unless his inspection of the authorities, meanwhile, changed his mind. The same grand jury will serve at the next term of court as was called for the last. The pettit jurors are: Joseph Rahm, G. C. Hudson, D. D. Dodge, I N. Gay, Michael Kline, Peter Bostrack, Bert Masten, and A. Seastream, of Al- jona; A. Kraus, Herman Ohm, and Ed. Hoble of Fenton; N. A. Martin, A. N. Leonard, John Nyman, L. A. Barslou, and F. Stewart of Bancroft; C. W. Miller, and C. E. Simmons of LuVerne; J. E. Patterson and John Smith of Ledyard; C. B. Sample, Irvington; J. C. Southard, Whittemore; Myron Hunt, Swea City; Christ Bonstetter, Garfield. In the reports of the supremo court decisions last week it appeared that the case in which the state fair woman who was searched as a pickpocket won damages against M. Stephens has been reversed. The woman got $150, but the court says that the verdict was not sustained by the law or evidence. There are two more of these cases but this reversal is likely to dampen the ardor of the women. It is doubtful if they ever try this case again. It was no secret with the jury in the trial that they gave her a verdict partly because they knew she would never pay the costs if the case went against her. The agent of the Northwestern road was in Algona last week to settle with Mr. Cunningham for the injuries suffered by himself and daughter in the wreck on the road at Story City. The matter was adjusted amicably and the company paid $100, As neither was seriously hurt this probably covers actual expenses, but considering the risk was not an undue allowance. The musician, Ovide Musin, who helped Miss Cunningham out, began suit for $25,000 for a finger which was cut, but we learn from the dailies that the company settled by giving him $3,000. It was an expensive smash up for the Northwestern. J. W. Sullivan was in St. Paul last week making some final arrangements for settlement in the case of August Fenske, who was killed last fall by the negligence of the street car company. The details have not been fully arranged, but the company will pay a little more than $2,000. The Minnesota law allows suit in such easels for only $5,000 and the measure of damages is the actual assistance the deceased was to his relatives, and so the sum agreed upon is considered liberal. Our readers will remember that Fenske was killed as he was standing on the side rail of his car collecting fares, by being struck by a disabled car that had been set off the track, but not far enough. We commend to Eugene Schaffter. who is to discuss the relations of editors to the railroad next week, the follow ing aggravated case of disrespect to a member of the profession. Qui ef^ptned republican, prohibitionist oratio Banoroftite, Jake Fveoh, is e habit of riding down from Ban roft to the water tank to his school house, and jumping off while the jngine takes Water. Yesterday he warded the train as usual, and after it md got under good motion the conductor maliciously, feloniously, and vith intent to deceive, told Jake that ihe train would not stop. Acting on ihis advice Jake threw his goods and chattels off and proposed to take his ;hances on a flying jump. Just then, lowever, the train began to slow up and stopped as usual at the tank, and Take had to go back a mile and pick the crumbs of his dinner out of the snow where they had sprinkled out of iis pail as it rolled along. We submit n all seriousness that this trifling with an honored member of the craft is calculated to lead to undue liberties, and ve hope that proper resolutions will be idopted at Eagle Grove next week. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. Miss Lizzie of Cedar Rapids, Nebr., s visiting her sister, Mrs. Frank rove. Rev. Dorward has gone to Des Moines or a few days, to see his son, and at- ttend the Mills meeting. Sid. Foster, secretary of the Des Moines insurance company and a well- fnown republican stumper, was in town Saturday. Mr. and Mrs. Fred Miller of Plum reek came back last week from a two weeks' wedding trip in Illinois and ihis state. Miss Bertha Bongey is visiting Mrs. W. J. Brunson. It is her first return since leaving Algona, and many old Mends are pleased to see her. Theo. Smith, who came to Livermore in 1850, was up to Algona Saturday, visiting some of his brother pioneers. Time deals lightly with him. Our distinguished consul, Phil. C. jjanna, has arrived at home. A dis- jatch in yesterday's Register an- iiounces that he is in Livermore. He arrived Monday. Mr. and Mrs. Theo. Chrischilles started yesterday for a winter's visit at Llano, Texas. They will visit their children there and spend some time in other southern cities. Geo. V. Slade and family of Burt went to Eagle Grove Monday, to attend a wedding reception for his brother John. John is the gentlemanly passenger conductor who I'uns to Des Moines, and is well known in Algona, where he once lived. Good luck to him. A WELL FILLED BUILDING-. The Algona Normal School Has an Attendance Tills Term That IB a Credit—More Room Needed for Next Year. Some people say " snug as a bug in a rug." We should say snug as the normal students at chapel exercises, A great many of them sit three in a seat, and then some had not come in, as Monday morning we looked the room over. In the recitation room the accommodations are ample, but if many more enroll Prof. Chaffee will have to secure a new chapel room. The enrollment on Monday reached 200 thus far this year. That is, since September 200 different students have been in attendance, and before the year ends nearly 300 students will have been enrolled. That is a flattering number for much more pretentious schools, and shows that the Algona normal is quietly but surely gaining a foothold. The reports of the students who attend have stimulated others in their neighborhood, and Prof. Chaffee says that a term attendance of 200 next year is one of the certainties. The question is no longer how to make the school self supporting but how to provide accommoda- titns, Some plan for more room wil! have to be devised this season. The Agricultural Society. The annual meeting of the Kossuth County Agricultural society will be held at the court house hall in Algona on Saturday, Feb. 4, at 2 o'clock. S. S. SESSIONS, Secretary. Farms for Bent.

'he Sale of Seats, How to Get One, the Manner of Their Disposal, and Schedule of Prices. The opera house company have eom- leted their arrangements for thoopen- ng night which are now definitely an- lounced. The sale of tickets svill oc- ur in the opera house Friday after- ioon,Feb. 3, at 2 o'clock. One box of ix chairs will be sold at auction and a ew choices of seats in the house, hould any bidder for the box desire to use more than six chairs they will be )ut in at a pro rata price. In bidding or a choice of seats, anyone offering a reuiium will be permitted to' select rom the plat of the house any seat he .esires by paying the scheduled price, ind any number of seats at the same premium. After the auction a box of umbers will be opened from which all vill draw. Each will then in his turn e called to the plat, where he may ake as many seats as he chooses. After his sale the plat will be kept in a convenient place until the evening of the ipening. The schedule of prices fixed is $2.50 or the parquette, which includes the /hairs directly in front of the- stage on he main floor; $2 for the dress circle, be seats behind the rail on the lower Loor; $2 for the front two rows in the >alcony; $1.50 for the remainder of the balcony, and $1 for the gallery and for general admission. As many consider the balcony and dress circle the most lesirable parts of the house, a choice of good seats is offered at as low prices is was asked for the same entertainment in Chicago. The character of the entertainment may be judged from the following account in the Dubuque Telegraph: "If •eliance is to be place in the reports ihat come from New York regarding ihe brightness and attractiveness of Mr. James Mortimer's latest farce comedy, ' Gloriana,' there should be unbounded merriment at the Grand this evening. The play is another of Manager Charles Frohman's comedy successes and has just closed a long and .mmensely profitable run in New York of nearly 150 nights, and is still running at the Globe theatre, London, England. The play is said to be one of dash, sprightly language, and clever situations, creating and maintaining an incessent uproar from the rise to final ! all of curtain. The comedy is admitted- .y constructed and developed on the oasis of theFrench l LeTrued_'Arthur,' The story turns upon the incident of a .jentleman and his valet changing characters in order that the former may extricate himself from an affair of the heart in which he had become entangled during his salad days, The omplications ensuing, aided by a jealous Russian count, form the life of the piece, and as may be imagined, the action is spirited from beginning to end. "New York was unanimous in the opinion that there not a dull moment in the play. It is a great race of fun from beginning to end. The peculiar character of the incidents are handled with rare delicacy and all the spirit of humor of the original French has been retained without the slightest expression that is not proper and refined, It is pure and wholesome fun. The company which appears is the same that presented the play in New York, and is admitted on all sides to be one of the strongest comedy organizations ever formed in the country. There is not an individual in the cast who has not been warmly praised by metropolitan critics, and most of them have made distinguished successes." A letter was received from Mr. Close of Kansas City Monday to the effect that the scenery for the stage had been shipped on the 17th, and that he will come at once. Everything promises to be in readiness, and the present indications are that both play and audience will be of a character befitting out handsome theatre. A great many in quiries are coming from neighboring towns and Algona is likely to be visitec on this occasion by people from all this section of the state. GLORIANA AT DUBUQUE. The Frobman company were at Du buquo Saturday evening, Following are brief extracts from the reports o ' three dailies of the city: ;,.,. Times: Onephbe brigW comedies that baa ej8? "' " *'' fory capable and clever artists. There vas not a "stick" in the company, oven he baron and the major of the Russian vrmy were perfect. Mr. Geo.

A curtain raiser entitled "Out In the Storm," acomedy, vas excellent and much appreciated. Dubuque Herald: The audience at he Grand last night was treated to a )lay not down on the bills. It was a rery pretty and decidedly cleverly pre- onted one-act curtain raiser 1 called, 'Out In the Storm." "Gloriana" >rovod a very amusing farce comedy ind all the parts were cleverly taken. Dubuque Telegraph: "Gloriana" vas presented to a good audience at he. Grand Saturday night. It is a jlever three act comedy. The leading mrt is taken by a handsome young man ittached to the British foreign office who gets into several matrimonial en- anglements. The part of the Russian .ount was taken by Geo. Barnum, ormerly a base ball umpire and one of ?om Loftus' old cronies. IN DEATH'S DOMAIN. ad Ending Among Strangers of a Bright and TTselul Life. A very sad death occurred at* the ?ennant House Sunday morning, Edward E. Rodgers, one of the company >f decorators who had been finishing .he opera house, state bank, and Congregational church, died at about 6 •'clock, He was working in the Congregational church Thursday morning ind complained of the heat near the soiling. After that he had a chill and vent to bed in the afternoon. Nothing ierious was thought to be the matter, jut Dr. Morse was called and left som'e medicine. Sunday it became apparent it brain fever had set in, and that night he died, C. B. Matson and Geo. Platt sitting up with him and doing vhat could be done. The address of ris mother being found she was immediately notified and arrived Monday. A jrother came yesterday morning, and with the remains both returned to Minneapolis on the 10:30 train. Mrs. Dodgers is a professional nurse in the city, and felt sure that she could have jrought her son out if she had known ,n time. When the news was received jy the rest of the decorators, who had returned last week, they were much iffectod. Rodgers was very popular with them and they insisted on having ;he funeral there. He was very pop_u- .ar with all who met him here, a skill- 'ul workman, and very much of a gentleman. Whatever the immediate cause of death few who knew how he worked while here will doubt that indirectly all the trouble was caused by the strain of over exertion. The painters worked nights and Sundays for the whole four weeks, They were paid by the hour, so no especial blame falls on Mr. Mclvor, , the contractor, and they began at 7 in the morning, rarely quitting till 11 o'clock or even later at night, seven days in the week. Healthy men cannot stand such a strain all the time, and the collapse of Rodgers shows the effect on weaker constitutions, Six days' work a week is enough, and the Sunday laws are a good thing, At Geo, 15. Marble's, Burt. 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 very liberal patronage given me, and hope with increased facilities to be able to serve you better.
