It is reported that parties in the new bank in Algona are arranging to put it in. • After tomorrow there will be no authority for opening the court room to the public. What is Algona going to do about a public hall? The storm Friday prevented the old settlers from turning out to the funeral of David Hegarty. He WHS buried ,from the Catholic church. Dr. Felling at Whittemore reports a girl baby at Mike McDonald's, Dec. 17; a girl at Wm. C. Funk's, Dec. 18; and I' a boy at John P. Walkers,' Dec. 23. Bancroft people claim that the biggest crowd ever in the town, were there last week Monday. The trade was very heavy all of the. week in spite of the bad roads. A man from Mason City is putting a hot water heating furnace in A. W. Moffatt's house. This is the first in Algona and its success will be watched with interest. Uncle Mart Pierce was up around , Ledyard last week looking at land. ' Although he is 72 past he is as young on his feet as most of the boys, and has ' no idea of quitting business. Christmas day was a fine winter day, the ground frozen and covered with snow. But it is thawing out again and C -uf Johnson can probably begin again soon on his fence post driving. Advertised letters are in the office for N, L. Palmer, Geo. Reddy, A. B. Clark, Robt. M, Dexter, John Winde- lorr, W. Jackson, Jacob Iseli, Miss Helena Nelson, Miss Jennie Sargent, and Jas. Breen. A little son of Jos. De Graw suffered a serious accident a week ago at Whit'- temV-w. He was playing with a penknife and in some way ran it into his right eye. Medical aid was called, but the sight was lost. J. W. Wadsworth and S, S. Sessions ^will have jack-rabbit for a New Year's dinner. W. M. Goodrich came ( >wn ^"pm Hebron Monday with three o'.' the gftgifBgjijt''/ever caught in the county and (^presented them to his friends. J, D. Starks, who had his leg broken by a kick from a horse in the fall, is just beginning to recover. Grip took him shortly after the accident and he has'been at the point of death several tiroes, but is now getting out of danger, A.'T. Standringand wife, old time Algonians, enjoyed a surprise at their Corwith home last week, the occasion being the 25th anniversary of their wedding. A social evening was ex- joyed, and a fine silver present was left by the visitors, The report comes from Spencer that Frank Cady and a lady of that place were married Christmas. We have no particulars further than that the bride is a widow and reputed to be worth some 130,000. They will make their home at Spencer. Bancroft's political contests end as all such matters should. Samuel Mayne and Merritt Turner were both candidates for the postoffice appointment. The former won and now continues Merritt as manager, a place he 80 acceptably filled under W. E. Jordan. The' Kenyon Cycle works is the name of a company in Des Moines, E. D. Kenyon and Bert Edmonds being partners. They repair and manufacture bicycles, eto. Bert says that business is good and that he gets but little time for riding. He will not go in for record making this season. Speaking of the coming meeting of the editors at Algona the Webster City Herald says: " All newspaper men in •Jh^Jistrict should make it a point to attend these meetings as there is always benefit to be derived from them (op members of tbe craft. Ft. Dodge entertained the boys royatly t and Algona will no doubt do as well—as it is no Slouch of a town." This suggestion will help to make every citizen feel a share of responsibility for the success of this tneeting. Let Algona do the proper thing by her visitors. Whereas the new Algona bank was wanting a safe badly for several weeks now it has more safes than it wants. The first firm it ordered of was so slow in filling the order that a second safe was secured. Now the first one has come and the bank has its choice. Both are handsome safes. Albert Reed had a runaway with his big gray team at Irvington last week. He had driven up to leave his father and mother nt the depot, and returning ran into a ditch throwing the spring seat off. The team smashed things up generally and stopped in a wire fence, which cut them up badly. We publish this week an interesting sketch of how the Indians were managed by the early settlers on tho Pacific coast, from the pen of C. P. Dorland. The civilization there was so different in its beginnings from anything in the east that an account of it reads more like the history of a foreign country. The Dunlap brothers intend to put in 1,200 acres of wheat at Ledyard next spring and 1,000 acres of flax. They put all of this year's flax ground to wheat, and break for the flax. They are also building a grain elevator and putting in a machinery warehouse. If they hit it lucky this year they can take it easy tho rest of their lives. The old folks dance was one of tho pleasantest parties given in Algona in years. The music was furnished by a picked up orchestra from Mason City to Emmetsburg and was good, and the hall was crowded with old and young dancers. Everyone seemed to have a pleasant time and to regret that the hour for breaking up came so early. All our readers who know Miss Hattie Acers in the recorder's office will be interested in this announcement in the Emmetsburg Democrat: "Cards are out announcing the marriage of Mr. Frank Illingworth and Miss Hattie Acers, Which takes place ut Blairgow- rio, Tuesday afternoon, Dec. 29." Tho marriage evidently ocoured yesterday. L. J. Rice has been arranging to open the new abstract office of Hay & Rice at the Doxsee office and will begin business promptly with the new year. Mr. Rice is a pleasant gentleman and a first class business man, and has made many friends in Algona since his arrival. The firm have the books of C. M. Doxsee, W. H. Nycum, and A. D. Clarke & Co. Bro. Hinchon, when seen about his coming debate with Geo. W. Hanna, said he would be ready when his opponent is. He thought Jan. 14 would suit him for a date. We still have a suspicion that he does not intend to stand fire, and we again desire to recall tho sad experience of Wnsson. We hope that there will be no flunking when the time comes. The final report of the Iowa crop bureau puts the average yield of crops in Kossuth as follows: Corn, 42 bushels per acre; oats, 45; wheat, 15; buckwheat, 10; timothy seed, 4; clover, 3; potatoes, 180; hay, ,1J tons; sorghum, 142 gallons. The average prices as jiven are: Corn, 26c; oats, 25c; wheat, SOc; buckwheat, 80c; potatoes, 20c; timothy seed, $1.06; sorghum, 39c per gallon; wool, 25c a pound; cows, $19.71 per head. A few hours visit at Ledyard last Thursday showed the changes since spring when the first sale of town lots was made. A new hotel, a half dozen business buildings, a large lumber yard, one of the finest little depot buildings in Iowa, grain warehouses, hay press barns, and everything to make a live little city have been put in. J. B. Jones devotes his time to getting- the country round about settled with live active farmers, and the new buildings Sfoing up all Over that section speak for the change that is being rapidly made. Ledyard is sure to become a good town. The installation of officers of the Eastern Star and Prudence Masonic lodges was made a public occasion last evening, and a fine banquet followed. A number drove down from Bancroft to attend. During the installation exercises a fine solo was sung by Miss Josie McCoy, and Miss Jessamine Jones gave a recitation. Following the banquet, Rev. Davidson, Mrs. Ingham, and Geo. E. Clarke spoke on matters pertaining to masonry, and the company ended in a social. The banquet was spread for 120 guests, and was well served by tho Thorington house. A good audience gathered at the Congregational church Christmas eve and enjoyed an amusing musical production representing the trial of Santa Claua. Squire Hardcash, Dr. Dryas- dust, Prof. Statistics and ,other like characters prosecuted, while a more attractively named lot of witnesses appeared for the defendant. After elaborate pleas, Judge Common Sense left it to the jury, a fine chorus of young ladies, and they were unanimous for acquittal,' The parts were all welltak* en, and the singing was all very fine, Christmas trees and exercises at the other churches made Christmas eve an enjoyable occasion for all of the little folks. The contents of a postal received from Rev, Glasgow of Eagle Grove will be interesting to the many friends of our former school teacher, Miss Clara Willey: " A young lady weighing nine pounds arrived at the Methodist parsonage Deo. 22, and the mother and child are doing quite well." The Eagle Grove Gazette notes tho arrival and says: " Rev. E. M, Glasgow, pastor of the M. E, church here, received his Christmas present a little ahead of the day, but none the less welcome, in the shape of a beautiful little girl who arrived yesterday. All doing well thank you. and Mr. Glasgow has a broad smile permeating his whole countenance." HIED LTJOK FOB AGENTS, Bancroft Does up Another Picture Agent—A 13ad Town for fakes. Another picture agent visited Ban 1 croft last week, with an experience like unto the one reported before. The Register says: A second agent took a conditional order of Rev. Wm. Richie and the picture did pot meet the con dltions. There wag a total lack of re semblance to life, and of course, was oi no use to Mr. Richie. The agent became angry because of the refusal and in an unguarded moment carried of! the photo from which the copy was made. Mr. Richie followed him to the depot and the agent admitted having the photo and that he intended to retain it. Being unable to secure it Deputy Sheriff Holloway called on the gentleman and he wilted in a minute; was glad to give back the photo and pay the costs. That's grief for agent number two this month.

She was 83 years old, and he hastened south to see her. J. R. Blossom was over from Spencer for the " old folk's" party. Jake is one }f Algona's old time dancers, when the Manchester band club parties were at their height, but that is the only respect in which he properly is classed with the old folks.

They attended the dance Saturday evening. M. L. Clarke and family got off Monday evening for California and expect an eight days' trip. They took their household goods, and probably will not soon again be seen in Algona. They leave many friends who regret that his health should have made the change necessary, and who wish them all good luck in their new home. THE OAEBEB OF A. B. FBINK, A Short Sketch of the 1,1 To of Kou- Bitth's Well Known Citizen. To the Editor: Albert B. Frink was born in Waterbury, Vt., Nov. 17,1822. He received a common school education. At the age of 21 he went to Ohio, Remaining but a short time he returned to Vermont, where for three years he taught school summers and attended an academy during the winter, At the end of this time he again came west, locating at Columbus, Wis., where he studied and practised law in the office of Judge Guppy. Becoming dissatisfied with that profession he came to McGregor, Iowa, and established a real estate office, afterward entered the mercantile business, where he remained for several years when he moved to Frankville asmall town near McGregor. While at McGregor he married. After a few years his wife died leaving one child, George A. A few years later he again married, his wife and two daughters survive him. His health failm; he came to Kossuth county in 1868, an settled on a farm, in Union township, where he resided until his death, Nov. 15. At his request he was buried on the farm. He was a man of natural intellectual ability and great strength of character, an incessant reader and stu dent, particularly of history. Tho Divorce Prospect. Spencer Reporter: Algona has a skating rink, and the lawyers are searching the code in regard to the divorce laws. IAW OF INTEREST, The Monticcllo Express Digests Three Recent Decisions of the Iowa Supreme Court, How a Landlord's Lien May Be Lost— Some Other Things that Everybody Should Know. The following shows how a landlord's lion may be lost: Wright, a Lyon county land owner, brought a suit against the defendant to recover the value of 200 bushels of wheat upon which he claimed a landlord's lien. The defendant admitted that he bought the wheat of the plaintiff's tenant, but asserted that the plaintiff had waived the lien. An interveuor appeared and claimed the wheat by virtue of a chattel mortgage. On a trial the plaintiff was defeated and the intorvenor obtained a judgment against the defendant. The plaintiff appealed, but the supremo court affirmed the case. It is concluded that the landlord had boon estopped from assorting his lien by standing still and entering no protest when the wheat was sold. It said: " Concede that plaintiff had a landlord's Hen upon the wheat In full force, ho would have prevented injury to himself or defendant by assorting or making known that lien when ho know the wheat was being sold to an innocent purchaser." A Chattel MotunKO CIIHO. One Irwln was a tenant on a farm in Lyon county. In Pobruai-y, 1888, ho gave a chattel mortgage on all the crops raised that year on tho land, describing it. The mortgage was recorded. Ho raised a crop of wheat and in October of that year sold it after it was threshed to the E. M. Dickey company on tho open market for full value. They had no notice of the mortgage except that imparted constructively by the recording of tho mortgage. In a contest which arose over tho sale the court entered judgment against tho purchasers of tho wheat and in favor of the mortgagee. Tho case was appealed to the supremo court at the October, 185)1, term. The case was affirmed. Tho court said that tho record was notice that the grain grown by Irwin on certain land was mortgaged. " Irwin offered tho grain for sale. This knowledge from the record WHS sufficient to put a purchaser on inquiry, and to our minds an inquiry would have disclosed tho actual condition of tho grain. Tho changed condition of tho property by being severed from tho ground and placed upon tho market does not, when viewed in tho light of its practical effect, necessitate a change of rule." Description of Property. A Franklin county man gave a chat-el mortgage on ti threshing machine and " all tho threshing machine accounts which we shall earn or become duo us by the work of tho above machine ;ill thisbebt is paid in full." Inncontost )ver the accounts tho supremo court at .ts last session decided that as a general rule every species of personal property which may be sold, and which has an actual or prospective existence, may bo mortgaged. It is a well settled rule in this state that a valid mortgage may bo iven on personal property not owned y the mortgagor, and not then in existence, if ho afterwards acquire it. While the right to mortgage accounts was affirmed, yet in this particular case 't was held the description of thorn or ihe locality where they were to bo earned was not definitely suggested and for that reason the mortgage failed.
