Laage bought the T. M. Clark farm in Fenton the other day, paying $25 an.acre. It is a good farm. The state, bank moved into the new quarters .last week. They have as fine banking .rooms as there are in Iowa. We hear that Peter Kriethe sold ,$3,600 worth of stock last week. He is •one of Kossuth's best farmers. W. F. 'Carter presented the coffee for the Washington supper, it being of his famous-Chase & Sanborn brand. Ernest '.Laage has traded for the Hager Store at Sexton. We are sorry to lose himjrora Algona, but wish him success. r Marriage licenses have been issued to W. £ Hager and Miss E. H. Johnson, Christ. Ruske and Emma C. Xllnglebofer. A trade was made!last week by which H. E. owner of the Bacon Tjuilding and lot on: State street.' It is a good property. A musical entertainment is announced at E. B. Eddy's at "Buffalo Fork Friday evening. Musicians from Burt and Al gona are expected. C. B. Mateon 'is discussing a proposition to go to 'Chicago and complete his legal studies. If he does he will be absent a year or more. Letters remain uncalled for in the Algona postotttee for Mrs. J. Craigo, John Halfner, Myran Johnson, L. T. Kirch, Phillip Tilknoney. Rev. Bagnell is enthusiastic in his revival work. He isays 'the meetings will continue till the Fourth of July if the present interest is maintained. The county fair .director's meeting comes next Tuesday, Mar-dh 7. Every • director should Toe present. This is the important meeting 'Of ;the year. Kenna, who burglarized !

Senator Chubb promises a letter ,on some road matters for our readers. It will be timely, for when this snow goes the road question will be -up again worse than ever. F. E. Peebles was in town last week in the interests of the National Library and Merchandise Supply company of Chicago. Mr. Peebles has several college friends in Algona. M. Z, Grove & Son thought spring had arrived, and put out a handsome new delivei-y wagon last week. It must have seen its shadow, for it went under cover very soon afterwards, M, P. Kelley and J. C. Miller now lie in jail charged with beating a hotel bill at Whittemore, Justice Hatch sent them over. It is rumored thai they hail from Emmetsburg. Dr. Sheetz celebrated his retirement from the mayoralty by taking the city council and other city officers out Saturday evening for an oyster supper, They had an enjoyable evening. The Grangers will have their annual chicken pie dinner next Wednesday at n-,80 o'clock at Grange hall, anc will entertain all their friends at 25 cents each. Everybody is invited. Bancroft had a union caucus and named C. C. Thompson for mayor, We hate to tuke anything less for Mr, Thompson than county attorney, bul if he is satisfied we shall have, to be. D. A. Buell was down from Minneapolis last week and disposed of 22 acres near Burt to Mr. Davison for $4,500, The property had good improvements Anything near Burt is worth money. Geo. E. Clarke saw the general su perintendent of the western Milwaukee trains last week, and he said that „' is now at work on. the „ for the new trains. The fas "pasBengjw will leave Algona at 6 o'clock Whittemore nominated Geo. E. Joyle 'for .mayor; A. Yole, recorder; torry OElidgway, treasurer; Ed.jEngler, treat commissioner; A. Schmidt and i 1 . i<3. Groneman, council men; N. L. lotion, assessor. It was a union caucus. The .Baptist Young People's union Of the .northwest district will hold a con- entioniin the Baptist church of this place March 18 and 17. Several speak- jrs of italent have been engaged, and a arge'flelegation from abroad is expected. A Duplicate whist set is engaging at- tentioti'at the club room. By this plan ixactly the same cards are dealt at dif- erent'timos to each set of players. The side making the most points on the same'hand are manifestly the more skilllUl. F. ,S..-Stough has secured the services _f E. M.'Gillett of Hampton, who takes charge of his harness shop. The new man is son of the editor of the Sheffield Press. 'This insures his moral stand- ng, and he is reputed to be a compe- ,ent workman. The 'Newcomb family thank their neighbors and the Sioux City lodge No. 47, B. R. T., for services in the burial of their^-son and brother. The remains were terribly mangled in the wreck, and were not recognizable when n'ought'home. Theicase of Col. Clarke against Ellsworth for an attorney's fee in the famous Ellsworth, divorce suit, is set for next Monday. Geo. E. and E. H. Harke and W. B. Quarton represent the plaintiff, Judge Cook and Mr. Birdsail the defendant. During the heavy snow Monday morning there was a vigorous storm of ightning and thunder. We have not met anyone who ever before heard ;hunde/in a snow storm. But this was an exceptional snow storm and entitled to a little fireworks. The Milwaukee passenger train going east Monday night got to the grade under the Northwestern track and stuck there. The train going west stopped at the depot. Yesterday morning it helped pull the east bound rain out, and that started on. Robt. Patterson stopped over a day in Algona on his way home from New York, wshere he has been to buy goods for his Spokane Falls store. He went to Charles City from here, and from there to Spokane. He reports all our old citizens well and prospering in Spokane. The Ltmd & Nelson milk wagon had a hard time of it yesterday morning. It took tla.ree men over three hours to shovel through so the team could get to town. Mr. Nelson was sick and Mr. Lund superintended the delivery and made the rounds, breaking the first track on most of the streets. A small burglary was committed at Fred. McCall's house over in the west part of town Saturday night. The burglar entered the house by the front door, took '.Fred.'s pocketbook with $5 or §6 and left by the back door, which was not closed. As Fred, remembered locking it there is no doubt of the theft. Our old-time early-comer, Mike Smith, wasupfromLivermorelast week and as he looked at Algona's new buildings his mind went 'back to his first visit to the town when a praire fire from the east was threatening to wipe it out. He says they ifought valiantly and stopped the fire (before it reached any of the buildings. Rev. De Forrest imforms us that il the new Milwaukee train runs as now expected there will be regular evening service at the Episcopalian church. He hopes to have Mrs. 'Cai-michael of Emmetsburg to assist the choir, and begin the the work of building up a strong parish here. He is a very pleasant gentleman and an able preacher. Supt. Reed calls our attention to a change in the state school law. Here 1 tofore when a new director was not elected in the spring the old one held over. Hereafter when there Is no election the board of directors must ap- 1>oint to fill the vacancy. Next Monday is election day in all sub-districts and directors should be chosen "m each one. ' The following resolution was unanimously adopted by the eighth to the twelvth grades inclusive of the public schools: "We thoroughly appreciate the courtesy of the Algona Opera House company, which they extended to us on the evening of the dedication of the Call Opera house, and that we enjoyed to the fullest extent the splendid programme there presented. " At the Eddy house concert on Friday evening at Buffalo Forks the pro- gramme includes pieces by Ruth Butterfield, Helen Eddy, Mrs. Fox, Mrs. Eddy, Miss McDonald, Flossie Smith, Mrs. Perry McDonald, Ernest Beale, Geo. Stone and Miss Erma D. Clarke. The admission is 15 cents and ice cream will be served after the concert. It will pay anyone to attend who can go. Barnet Devine's friends will be pleased to learn that lie is improving rapidly and will soon be home. He was to have left the asylum Monday. We have not learned whether he is fully recovered or not, but he is we! enough to be able to take care of himself and to attend to some business His strong constitution has brough him through this time. W. L. Joslyn returned from his Illi nois trip last evening, after many perils on the way. At Jewell Junction the lead engine on his train ran off the track on account of the .ice, and rollec over, The other ran on until the passen ger was alongside the upset engine, and stopped, and then the darkey porter yelled that the engine boiler was going to burst. Our attorney says it has always been his idea that he would be calm In moments of danger, but some how in the scramble to get out of thai car he was in the thickest of the crowd and in the race up the track he led the srocession, even beating the darkey. After the steam had all escaped and ;he danger had passed the passengers went back and secured their baggage and came on north. While in Algona last week Lafe Young recalled that his first act after jeing elected to• the state legislature was to assist in creating old Crocker county. He gained his first experience ihen. Afterwards he tried to attach part of Pottawattamie county on to 2ass, and hunted up his old Crocker county bill to help him in drafting a plan. He remembers Crocker quite tenderly, as do many of the citizens of northern Kossuth. Lee Horning and Joseph Alderman Were tried yesterday on the charge of resisting E. Telliet* and Olof Johnson in a, raid on their health restorer a year or more ngo. Mr. Tellier, the 3hief witness, was snowed in at Humboldt and not present, and Johnson's testimony could not be admitted because he was not noted as a witness before the grand jury, and so the state's case rather petered out. The judge took the matter from the jury and dismissed the defendants. Report comes from LuVerne that Bro. Platt is about to leave us. He has rented the News to Mr. Sinclair of Humboldt, late candidate for clerk in that county, and has himself bought the Winnebago Summit at Forest City. As Will F. Smith bought that paper a few weeks ago there seems to be something singular in this version of it, but In any event the News is rented and Mr. Platt goes to Forest City to run a paper there. We welcome the new man at LuVerne, and wish Bro. Platt all success. The old tree claim contest between Brower and Neff lias finally been decided in the land department at Washington, and Mr. Neff holds his claim. Brower of Des Monies tried to get the claim away on the ground that Noff had not complied wrtfh the law in setting out trees. Neff teat him at Des Moines and now wins at Washington. F. M. Taylor has conducted NelT's case and is feeling very much pleased with the outcome. It 'speaks well for his acquaintance with our land laws and ability to handle such cases. A couple of years ago Dr. Garfield's mastery of the bicycle brought him and Algona considerable fame. But the doctor is not our only candidate for athletic honors. Judge Perry, who has reached 75 years, is a fine example of a well-preserved man, and he holds himself in readiness to outrun or outwrestle any man of his age. He has had an exceptional experience, having never been sick in bed a day in his life. He enjoys life as -well at 75 as he ever did, and keeps as young in spirit. It is pleasant to see people grow old gracefully. Mr. and Mrs. C. B. Hutch ins are expected home from Sioux City today if the trains get through. They were married a week ago and have been spending a few days with friends at Dubuque and Sioux City. The bride is Mrs. Fanny Hamilton, aunt by marriage of his former wife, and widow of the late Dr. Hamilton of McGregor. She is a woman of means, owning considerable land near West Bend, and in every way an estimable lady. Many friends will welcome her to Algona, and wish the happy couple all the joys they anticipate. J. W. Wadsworth a;nd Geo. E. Clarke have been in Emmetsburg for several days assisting in the settlement of the banking business of Chas. McCormack and P. O. Refsell. They are about to go out of partnership and are closing up their accounts. Mr. Wadsworth was selected to go through the books for which task there is not probably a better fitted man in the state. Mr. Clarke represents Mr. McCormack, and an Emmetsburg attorney attends to Mr. Refsell's interests. Mr. McCormack will continue the business. Our delegates to the Ea,gle Grove gold medal declamatory contort last Friday came back with colors flying. There were six contestants, and Miss Maud Cowan was awarded the first place, and Geo. Hamilton third. The markings were very close on the best speakers, so that both had high honors. Miss Cowan's previous fine record as a speaker insured her friends in a very confident feeling that she would rank high. This brings two gold medals to Algona, as Miss Erma D. Clarke also has one. The medals are of solid gold and are very handsomely designed. In the neighborhood notes we publish this week a report of the death of the man who made a paper town over in Clay county and called it Spencer, in early days, and swindled whoever he could with the lots. Spencer was an old Iowa man, living in Iowa City. W. H. Ingham met him in the old Summit house there in the fifties. He had just made a deal about like this paper town speculation in Clay, and called up everybody to drink to the sentiment " the est, biggest bug that walks this earth is the humbug,' 1 He lived up to his motto, reached the senate it, and died the champion " blue sk man of his generation. It turns out that P. P. Cuplin, the inventor of the new revolving granc stand, is mayor of West Bend, He sends us this week some circulars containing illustrations of his stand and a brief description of how it works. It all looks simple enough, although of course he does not say how he confines the water on which the stanjl is placed. The grand stand is in the middle of the race grounds, and turns as the horses go round so that people are always facing them. We would suggest to Mayor Cuplin that the Kossuth county fail would be a good place to exhibit his device, and that the hill in the middle of the grounds a very sightly location An amusing circumstance arose in the final hearing of the famous state fair pickpocket case in Des Moines last week. When the rehearing was ordered the ladies took a change of venue to Judge Holmes' court, and this hoar- ing was before him. The evidence hac all been given and the lawyers were arguing the motion to dismiss the case when the judge said he had a few words to offer, He then explained that he was in the state fair building himself, had seen the whole transaction, ^ knew most of the matters that had been testified to. He then proceeded to express the opinion that Mr. Stephens and his assistants were fully justified in what they did, and dismissed the whole proceeding. The plaintiffs were thunderstruck and got out of court as 'ast as they could. ihe army boys and relief corps ladies liave yet given. Over 500 sat at the tables during the evening. Court House hall was filled to overflowing ind as elegant a spread as ever graced it disappeared in short order. The literary exercises consisted of songs and addresses. Commander Hedrick after a few opening remarks introduced Rev, Davidson, who gave a very thoughtful discussion of ultimate government. He was followed by Mrs. Ingham, who read a selected poem. Rev. Bagnell ihen spoke very finely of the war from the standpoint of a young man. Altogether the supper was a great success, and all who attended will keep their eye on Feb. 22, 1894. Twenty-five years ago last Wednesday Lewis H. Smith in his capacity as county judge went to the log house, which until a few years ago was standing where A. R. Dutton now lives in Cresco, and married Miss Baker and G. M. Parsons. And last Wednesday a number of the same ones who were there gathered at Mr. and Mrs. Parson's home in Sherman and congratulated them on the joys of 25 years. Mr. Smith was present and many old friends and a bountiful dinner was spread and many valuable presents displayed, and all had an old settler's good time. After it was over they all drove to Algona and ate again at the grand army supper making out a day of feasting. May the next quarterof acentury be no less pleasant to all than the past has been. THEOWN FBOM A BRIDGE. Mr. and Mrs. S. A. Thompson Narrowly Kscnped Death Last Saturday Kveiiliig. A very serious accident happened to Mr. and Mrs. S. A. Thompson Saturday evening on the north bridge on the grade leading to the Call bridge. They were driving out to attend some social gathering and came to the bridge, which was bare. The horse wore a breast collar, which was evidently too high for it, and in pulling to cross the bridge was choked. In its struggles it threw itself against the railing of the bridge, which gave way, and it fell over, dragging the cutter and its occupants. They fell about eight feet, Mr. Thompson being seriously injured in the back and side, and Mrs. Thompson getting a cut in the face about an inch long. Their son was unhurt. They were brought to town by Mr. Wright's team, and Dr. Morse called. He thinks there is no serious injury, although Mr. Thompson was very badly bruised. It was a narrow escape. Dedication Postponed. On account of failure in getting our windows from Chicago in time for the 12th of March the dedication of the Baptist church is postponed. As soon as we can be assured positively when the house will be completed we shall notify the public of the time for dedication. W. H. D. Tlie Storm Don't Stop Me.
