Any business transacted with him will be tho same as though done eib this office. THE CITY. Old Mrs. Chaffee, mother of the two well known Burt farmers, died Monday afternoon. February thds far hn.H been something, we should judge, after the pattern of 1857. Letters remain in the postolfice for Jacob Geotroch, Geo. C. Miller, and H. Warrlngton. It is reported that seats at " Gloriana" have been secured for Mr. and P&il. C. Hanna. P. L. fSlagle is about again after a six weeks' run of typhoid fever. He has had a serious time of it. There is said to be an epidemic of diptherla at Bode, Twelve children have died, and the schools are closed. Chas. E. Jones is now engaged in the grain, seed, and coal business at Sexton. Sexton's business continues to grow. * This evening the Grand Army post and Women's Relief corps hold a social in the army hall, to which all are invited. W. H. Conner of Plum Creek is confined to the house with ulcerated sore throat. He has not been out in three weeks. A special train will go north tomorrow night after the theatre, one east, and one south. One could not be secured west. C. L. Lund is feeding 300 hogs, which now average over 200 pounds. He also has 300 cattlo on feed. This is his lucky year. M. Z. Grove & Son have been putting in some fine candies for the opera house people. Probably they have "Gloriana" brands. Mr. and Mrs. B. G. Hough of Irvington, Miss Maggie Winkel, and Ralph Miller go to attend Phil. C. Hanna's wedding tonight. The dedication of the new Baptist church is set for March 12. It is expected that everything will be in readiness by that time. Sheriff Graham is expected tomorrow with Hays, the man who jumped out of the car window at Emmetsburg, and afterwards broke jail here. Sheriff Graham has been off 'in Texas for a week. It is reported that he has one of the escaped Kossuth jail birds in sight and will bring him back. A proposition to put in electric lights is being discussed. W. B. Quarton and Frank Nicoulin are behind it, and the council will no doubt syon have it in definite form, The Baptist young people give their valentine social at the residence of W. C. Danson Tuesday evening, Feb. 14. Everybody invited. Come and secure your valentines, No settlement has yet been made between Sheriff Graham and the railway company, whose negligence caused Mrs. Graham's injuries. Mr. Clarke will soon begin suit. At the coming city election a proposition will be submitted to vote a small tax for a public library. The council, we understand, was pretty unanimously in favor of the proposition. Marriage licenses have been issued to Chas Henz and Ida Tieda, A. Holloran and Susia Kersay, John Hulburtand Maggie Butler, A F. Steinberg and Annie Salter, Lars E. Ericksen and Theo. Omberg. Mr. and Mrs. A. L. Peterson go to Livermore today to attend the wedding of Phil. C. Hanna, which occurs this evening. Mr. and Mrs. Hanna go back to Venezuela soon and will remain there during Phil.'s term as consul. Clark Rice, who came back from California a few weeks ago, returns to San Francisco today. He is called by a telegram offering him a steady situation at good wages. He will probably remain permanently on the coast. Geo, E. Boyle was ovex- from Whittemore last week. He reports Mrs. Boyle as sinking rapidly, without hope of recovery. He has to go back and forth to her bedside in Wisconsin often, and has not been in Kossuth regularly for some time. The Northwestern trains were deranged last Wednesday by a freight getting stuck in the snow up by Judge Cook's farm. The conductor and brakeman had to walk back to Bancroft and telegraph for an engine to come and pull them out. A late letter from Dr. Barr indicates that he is likely to get entirely free from the blood trouble that has poisoned his face so long. His cheeks are entirely free now, and his forehead is getting better. He is enjoying- his visit, as may readily be imagined. Mrs. W. B. Quarton kindly remembered several well known "old baches" of. Algona, and invited them to dinner with Mr. Quarton, Sunday. That they had an enjoyable time goes without saying. Mr. and Mrs. Quarton know how to extend a very generous hospitality. The long-contested insurance case over the loss of W. E. McMurry's house has at last been settled by the supreme court, and the company has to pay the award made by the jury here in the county, Geo. E. Clurke had the case in charge, and se9ures Mr. McMurry mofc\y. Probably nx>w a new bouse will gO Up Whefet th& old <jnS stBod. They are being as mean as possible and have filed-a petition for-a re-hearing, but will make nothing of it. At the election of a second lieuteh ant bf Company F Saturday evening Melzar Haggard was tho lucky man. We know Melzar to bft suited to the duties of war by his conduct at Chicago at the world's fair opening, when all the military heroes were out, and can endorse him for any position there is. Bancroft has the Iowa State band for a concert Tuesday afternoon, Feb. 21. The. state band is the best musical -organization west of Chicago and will give a fine concert. All who enjoy popular music and who are convenient to Bancroft should attend. Nothing better will ever be given in the new halh G. W. Skinner was down yesterday ready to open his Algona offices, but the rooms were not fitted for him. He wilt get here sometime next week. His brother will continue the Bancroft busi ness, but he will move his family here in the spring and make Algona his home until he gets the LaGuayra consulship. Arrangements will be made to seat all who come to "Gloriana" tomorrow evening. If the weather is fine there will be a big attendance from the country of early settlers, who remember the old " town hall," and are curious to see tho new "town hall." No one need stay away, as there will be plenty of good seats. Tho mysteries of female attire are discussed in a bright contribution this week by Miss Nellie Hamilton. We don't know much about the merits of the case, but it is snfe to venture the opinion that if the temperature keeps where it has been much longer, some reform in all kinds of clothing, male and female, will have to be devised. L. C. Chandler is just able to be about on crutches after being housed up for IATO weeks. In turning on the crossing in front of the Kossuth County bank he slipped on some ice and fell on his hip, and had to be carried home on a dray wagon. For a week he could scarcely turn in bed, and even now is hardly able to be about. Ho received a very severe bruise. One of the finest social receptions of the season was held at C. L. Lund's "Oak View" farm home, east of town, last Thursday evening. A large company was present and enjoyed the lavish hospitality the host and hostess know so well how to dispense. The fine improvements they have made were the occasion of much comment, and all enjoyed the evening in their spacious and beautifully-fitted home. The Sheldon Mail says: "W. W. Johnson was quite seriously hurt in the wreck of the excursion train conveying the members of the lumbermen's convention from Minneapolis to Chicago, at Kent, 111., on the Great Northern railroad last Friday. Mr. Johnson had two ribs broken and wa's otherwise bruised and injured." We have been unable to learn whether this is our old- time W. W. Johnson or not, but presume it is. Some Bancroft people were in the wreck and had narrow escapes. The season of spring politics is approaching. On the first Monday of next month Algona will test the new voting law again to elect a mayor, treasurer, city solicitor, and four aldermen. Mayor Sheets, Treasurer Doxsee, and Attorney Sullivan step out, and with them Aldermen Cleary from the oFirst, Moffatt from the Second, Blossom from the Third, and Smith from the Fourth. We presume caucuses will be held to name their successors, and that the political bee will begin buzzing again in the near future. Every arrangement is being made to care for the visitors who will come to Algona tomorrow evening to attend the opera house opening. The members of the company are appointed committees to meet the trains and direct all to such places as they care to go to. Anyone attending who does not know what to do with himself or herself is at perfect liberty to stop anyone on the streets and make known what is wanted. Someone will always be found at the opera house entrance, and all inquiries will be answered there. All coming in From the country should remember this.

The Agricultural Society's Afinuai Meeting Last Saturday—Officers Elected for the Ensuing Year. Like Its first session the adjourned meeting of our new county board is one to attract attention and commendation. Several Important ma.tters were taken in hand, and valuable reforms are likely to result. One of these was the investigation into the ct>st of the poor farm, and of grades last year. Auditor Doxsee was appointed to report, and submitted the following: Your committee appointed to prepare a statement of the cost of maintaining the poor farm for the year 1892 and the cost oi grades in the county during the same time, begs leave to submit the following: Amount expended on poor farm for 1H02 $1,40081 Amount Hold from farm daring 1802 01)0 00 Amount expended on granles durliifr 1802 8,82050 Respectfully submitted, C.' M. DOXSEK. The board were unanimous in the ,opinion that both were far too extravagant for the results accomplished, and every tax payer will agree with them. The poor farm is a good farm well fitted, and there is no excuse for its not paying half tho expense of running it. And as for nearly §0,000 jn grades, aside from township work, it only illustrates the folly of our whole road system. A second action was tho adoption of the following resolution: Resolved, That all roads petitioned for that were laid over till the April meeting from the regular adjourned session be declared laid provided they are laid without expense to the county, and it is the sense of this board that no more road damages will be paid for laying roads by the county further than the actual expenses incurred for commissioners, appraisers, etc. This hits one of the greatest abuses the county has suffered from squarely, and will put a stop to some extravagant claims. A third action of the board was making a contract for having all the bridges in the county for the coming year put in by one contractor, and all to be of hard wood. This includes all bridges of 32 feet and upwards, as the county builds none shorter, and the work is to cost $5 per foot of bridge length. W. W. Wheeler was given the contract. All lumber is to be Arkansas oak but the piling, which is Iowa oak. The specifications are set out in full in the contract and all work is to be done under supervision of a committee of the board. It is said that our ordinary pine bridges have been costing §4.50 and §5 a foot, which, if correct, shows that tho new contract is a good thing for the county. It is at least certain that letting all the work to one bidder for hardwood bridges is a great improvement on old methods. The quicker all the county work is let the same way the better. Nothing was done in the way of routine, aside from what was reported last week, except to allow Jas. Mclnroe $33.50 expenses incurred in chasing prisoners. The usual bills were allowed. The next session comes in April. THE NEW BRIDGE CONTRACT. So much discussion has been started over the bridge deal with Mr. Wheeler that we publish the contract made by the board in full, It will be of interest to all: CONTRACT. This agreement, entered Into this first day of February, 1803, between the board of super visors of Kossuth county, Iowa, of the lirst part, and the W. W. Wheeler Lumber and Bridge Supply company, of the second part, witnesseth: That the said second party has this day entered into an agreement, with said first party to build all wooden county bridges in said county over 32 feet in length during the year 1803 at the stipulated pi-ice of Five Dollars per running foot; all bridges to be built of ttrst-class Arkansas oak, except the piles, which may be Iowa oak, and except the guard rails, which may be of pine. Piles to be not less than eight inches in diameter lit small end, and peeled, and of such length as the board of supervisors may direct. The said second party to use what piling the county now has on hand at the price paid for by the county.

Said second party to give bonds in the amount of »1,000. The work of building said bridges to be done under the supervision of a committee of the board of supervisors. Said flrst party to give said second party sixty days notice of any bridges to be built, and to furnish said, second party an estimate of the material necessary for the construction of bridges ordered. Seventy-five per cent, of the cost of material is to be paid safd second party when the material is on the ground, and the balance of cost of the bridge to be paid when the work Is approved by tho committee; said work to be examined upon notification that said work is completed.

Dodge, president; C. B. Lewis, vice president; J. W. Wadsworth, treasurer; S. S. Sessions, secretary; O. A.' Potter, marshal. This secures an energetic management and insures ample preparations.

The only action taken at this meeting was ordering the executive committee to try and buy ground joining the present grounds on the north. ANOTHER OLD SETTLER INSANE. Dr. S. G. A. Head Is Committed, to Independence by the County Insane Commissioners. Those who have known of the failing health of Dr. Read will not be surprised at the action of his friends in bringing him before the county commission and having him sent to an asylum where he can have proper treatment. Ho has been utterly helpless for some time, and practically so since last summer. Dr. McCoy sat as a member of the board and found him suffering from idiotic insanity. He will be taken to Independence by J. R. Jones and Mrs. Read. The complaint *was made by Mrs. Read's sister, Mrs. McKown. Dr. Read by the county record is 74 years of age, though many think him much older. He was born in Washington county. Vermont, in January 1817, according to the county history. He was educated at Oberlin college, and graduated in medicine in Cleveland in 1853. His first wife, mother of Mrs. Alden Hawkes, Mrs. Hill, and Mrs. J. P. Hawkes, died in 1800, and he was married to his present wife in 1863. In 1805 they moved to Algona, coming from Cedar Falls by stage. For years he was Kossuth's only doctor, and has always enjoyed a considerable practice. Mrs. Read soon after her arrival started THE UPPER DES MOINES and has since been active in various literary channels. All early settlers will regret to hear of the doctor's failing health, and especially that it has taken so unpleasant a form. And to Mrs. Read in her trial the sympathy of all will be extended. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. Rev. Dorward has gone to Sheldon for a week. A. L. Gocldard returned Saturday from a month's visit in the eastern part of the state. C. T. Chubb goes soon to Chicago, where he will take a full business course at Bryant & Stratton's college, Mrs, Geo. Buskirk, who has been spending a couple'of weeks visiting old friends, returned to her Missouri home yesterday. H. J. Edens was back last week on a visit from Missouri Valley, where he is now located. He has resigned as captain of Company F, but no new election 1ms yet been ordered. W. J. Brunson went to Beatrice, Neb., yesterday to make final arrangements for the "Uncle Tom" company. He gets the tent there. The company is sure to go now, and Algona can prepare for a second grand opening in April. Obituary. To the Editor: Eldora May Burbank died Jan. 21, 1803, aged 22 years, seven months, and twenty-days. She was born in Dallas county, Missouri, in 1870. In 1877 she was converted to Christ, buried with the Savior in baptism, and became a member of the Methodist church at Brooklyn, Iowa. In 1801 she came to Kossuth county and became one of our county teachers. After much suffering for nearly a year she fell asleep in Jesus. She leaves father, mother, two sisters, and three brothers to mourn her loss; but their loss is tier eternal gain. Funeral services were held In the Baptist church at Whlttemore. Rev. T. A. Warriugtou preached the funeral sermon from the text: " There the wicked cease from troubling and the weary are at i-est."—Job, 3, 17. A largo concourse of sympathizing friends followed the rem *ins to the cemetery. Two brothers, E. Bui-bank of Atwood, Kansas, and E. T. Burbank of Algona, and sister, Mrs. A. T. Castor of Algonu, were present. #** A Seasonable Verse, Lincoln Journal: Backward, turn backward, oh time in your flight, J Give me July again Just for a night, Soften the soil where the frost king has hiin, Oh, let me hear one mosquito again; I am so weary of snow drifts and ice, Weary of paying the coal trust its price; Weary, so weary of frost-bitten pie- Give me a slice of the Fourth of July. Backward, swing backward, O season of snow- Mercury fifteen or twenty below— Turn on the heat of the tropical zone, Roast me until I am cooked to the bone, I am so tired of freezing my nose, Weary of chilblains and corns on my toes, Weary of trying to sleep with cold feet- Turn on the heat, mister, turn on the heat. FOR the Mardi Gras at New Orleans, La., and Mobile, Ala., the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway will sell round-trip tickets for $35.80, from Feb. 6 to 12 inclusive, return limit March 7. E. F. Hedrtck, agent. IF you want an overcoat we can fit you with a good one for a little money. Geo. L. Galbraith & Co. WENT LIKE HOT CAKES. That is How the Seats for " Gloriatm" Sold at the Auction Last Friday Afternoon. The Success of the Call Opera House Opening, Tomorrow Night, Now An Assured Fact. "Gloriana" mny or may not be " a joy forever" but she is likely to be re- mo tube: red forever in some shape by the people of Algona. The opera house opening tomorrow evening will be a memorable event in local history, and " Gloriana" seems to bo an approprito title for the occasion. She will at least be greeted by as? largo and representative an audience as ever congregated in Kossuth, and neither frozen thermometers nor northwest blizzards can prevent her from a cheerful and hearty welcome. The opening siilo last Friday insures that. It alone made a big audience certain. And if tomorrow is a pleasant day every seat will bo taken. Tho sale began with a goodly crowd present, and D. A. Haggard put on his blandest manner in a little opening speech in which he stated what " we are here for," and then olTerod the boxes. One of these had been tendered to Mr. Call by the company, but ho afterwards accepted seats in the dross circle in preference, and both boxes were sold, The bidding was not spirited on either and they went at; $15 and $15.60. The bidding began for choices in the body of the house, and a premium of SI.85 a seat was paid for some, while $1 to §1.50 was common. Mr. Haggard kept the sale going as rapidly as the tickets could be handed out and the plat marked, and when tho auction closed $059 had been taken in, and everybody present had seats, so no drawing for numbers was made. Among tho bidders were G. W. Skinner from Bancroft and Hardy Buell from Burt, both of whom took an active part. A large number of tho seats were taken for outside parties, and from Spencer, Britt, Wesley, LuVerne and other towns a delegation will bo present, while at least 25 from Burt and 35 from Bancroft already have seats secured. The cold weather has made getting specials very difficult, but a return train north and east are assured. The company come here from Sioux Falls and will arrive tomorrow morning at 10:80 o'clock. At Geo. 15. Marble's, Burt. We intend to move into our now 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. 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. One hundred nice presents for the first one hundred ladies who call on us in our new store. GEO. E. MARBLE, 35 Burt, Iowa. FOR RENT. GRASS LANDS. For Mowing Purposes Only.
