THE tJJPPJBB JMS MOINES: ALGONA, IOWA, WJBBN^BBAY, MAHOH 1, 1893, A, A. CALL FOR MAYOR, Both Parties Unite in a Unanimous Nomination—Other Candidates for Monday's Election. The Caucuses Their Choice, Some of Whfcm Stick, while Others Pull Off the Track. The talk about choosing younger business men for the city council didn't pan out very heavy to the aero last week, J. W. Wadsworth and Peter Larson being the only ones who were nominated. 'J.'ho Second ward, however, chose a young old man in Dr. Garfield. In the Fourth D. H. Hutchins was named by the republicans. T,ho democrats hold no regular caucus, but nominated C. Dyson in the First, Wm. Cordingley in the Third, and A. C. Scott in the Fourth, allowing Dr. Garfield a clean sweep In tlio Second. The republican city convention mot Thursday evening and unanimously •nominated Ambrose A. Call for mayor and filli-rl out the remainder of the ticket ii« follows: Assessor, G. H. Lamson; Irony-lira 1 , C. M. Doxsee; solicitor, S; S. (Si••••.•-ions. After tho convention was ovur Um democrats got together and iigiv.r-d upon Mr. Cull-and Mr. Lamson, nominating D. S. Ford for treasurer and J. W. .Sullivan for solicitor. Friday morning S. S. Sessions withdrew his name, and a petition was signed to have W. L. Joslyn's name substituted. J. W. Sullivan also with drew his numo from tho democratic ticket. As Mr. Joslyn was away from town nnd only two days are allowed a candidate in which to withdraw, there seems to bo no escape for him. Tho unanimous nomination of Mr. Call for mayor is a worthy recognition of the service ho has rendered the town in building the opera block, a compliment to the first of Algona's remaining pioneers. His practical judgment and experience will be valuable to the city at a time like tho present when important matters are up for settlement. The election comes Monday next, the polling booths being placed where they were last fall, we presume. THE COMING SCHOOL, KLKCTION. Condition of tho Independent District and Needs for the Coming Your. The annual report of the treasurer ol the independent district has been published with the call for tho coming election of directors to succeed Geo. E. Clarke and Dr. Ban*. Monday, March 13 is the day. The financial standing of the district is shown in the following figures for the year ending March 1893: Teachers' fund- Cash ou hand »l,007.8:i Received from county treasurer 5,328.78 Received from county auditor 010.00 Received from tuition 7.00 paralleled, in crossing the Rocky, Bitter Roots, and Cascade mountains the greatest mountain Scenery to be seen in tho United States from the car windows is found. The wonderful bad lands, wonderful in graceful form and glowing color, are a noem. Lakes Pond d' Oreille and Coeur d 1 Alene are alone worthy of a trans-continental tap, while they are tho fisherman's untima thule. The ride along Clark's fork of the Columbia river Is a daylight dream. To cap the climax this is tho only way to"reach the far-famed Yellowstone park. To reach and see nil this the Northern Pacific rUilroad furnishes trains and service of unsurpassed excellence. The most approved and comfortable palace sleeping cars; tho best dining cars that can be made; Pullman tourist cars good for both first and second-class passengers; easy riding day coaches, with baggage, express, and postal cars, all drawn by power/til Baldwin locomotives, make a train fit for royalty itself. Those seeking for new homes should take this train and go and spy out the land. To be prepared write to CHAS. S. FEE, G. P. & T. A., St. Paul, Minn. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. E.

Abraham Lincoln, When leaving Ilia home at Springfield, 111 to be inaugurated president of tho Unltoi States, made n farewell address to his old friends and neighbors in which ho said "Neighbors, giro your boys n chance." These words come with as much force to day as they did ..thirty years ago. How give them this chance? Up in the north •west is a groat empire waiting for younj, and sturdy fellows to come and develop 1 end " grow up with the country." All ovei this broad laud are tho young fellows, th boys that Lincoln referred to, seeking tc bettor their condition and got on in life.

The latest device to facilitate communication between different departments of large business establishments is a miniature telephone exchange. The system is installed after exactly the same principle as an exchange covering a wide city area. Each desk to be put in connection has its own instrument, •which is in principle the same thing as bhe full grown telephone, but is of miniature size. The receiving or hand instrument, however, ia not of the long shape with cylindrical handle, familiar everywhere nowadays, but is simply a flat disk resembling one of the earliest forms of telephone, of which a few were seen in the infancy of the invention. The "central office" is put in a small closet or inclnsure at some convenient point, and is operated by a boy who has nothing else to do. There are a dozen or BO connections, according to the size of the installation and the needs of the office. This exchange is operated upon precisely the same principle, though of course on a smaller scale and with less complication, as a central office in a city exchange. The ring of any of the connected telephones causes a numbered disk on a switchboard to fall when the boy makos the desired connection and releases it •when the talk is finished. In large and busy establishments, where every department must be connected with every other for frequent communication, this telephone exchange system does awuy with a large number of cumbrous speaking tubes and insures a quicker and more satisfactory service.—New York Tribune. One Taken and the Other Left, Jn 1871 a coachman was killed by lightning while driving, and the footmon sitting by his side was not injured. The lightning struck the coachman's head, destroyed his cap and tore his clothes, passed through his body and tore a hole through the cushions on which he was sitting. No damage was done to the carriage except breaking the glass, and the occupants were not injured,—Exchange, Back in the early seventies a dashing young man named MorntDny made Algona his headquarters for a year, selling machinery for ,L R, Jones. He owned a fast team which gained fame by running away with young Martin and throwing him on the Kossuth County bank woodpile, out of which arose a well known and long contested personal injury case. Then he went to Emmetsburg and is remembered there for a little altercation with Mart Coonan, which was strictly scientific. Prom Emmetsburg ho drifted to Dakota, wont into politics, came near being f ovornor of the territory, and got rich. Eo is now world's fail 1 commissioner from that state. He is also under arrest as the following dispatch indicates: "RAPID CITY, S«D., Feb. 28.—M. H. Day, world's fair commissioner from South Dakota and president of the Rapid Valley Horse Ranch company, is arrested on the charge of selling 60 horses to the company which were already mortgaged. He waived examination and gave bail. An attorney for the eastern stockholders is hero. He alleges that his clients have been victimized, and makes charges of forgery and false pretenses. It is assorted that $50,000 has disappeared in the ranch with practically nothing to show for it. The Day horso. ranch controversy assumed new and sensational features this afternoon. After a stormy session in a stockholders meeting called to remove Day from the presidency, constables appeared upon the scene and arrested .Tas. H. Megrue of New York and Jas. R. Rhodes of Cincinnati upon charges brought by Day. This broke up the meeting. Day also swore out warrents for the attorneys engaged in prosecuting him, and nearly all the parties to the controversy are now under arrest. Day is making a bold and desperate fight for possession of the property, and a bitter and protracted law suit is under way." If he is the same old Day of 20 years ago, he will make it lively while the fight is ou. Kucklcn's Arnirn Salvo.

A Recipe for Getting Rich Doesn't hang on every bush, and yet perhaps I can give you a few pointers that will assist you in Saving What You Have .^fc-— -And Adding Something to It. The chief of these is told in four words: "Buy goods of Carter," We do not claim to sell the "cheapest" goods in the market— ' nruch that is sold would be dear at any price—but no one now questions the statement that My Goods Are Always Prime, A 1, None better to be had in all the land. And the prices—they are* right—never fear about that—they will be found consistent with. the class of goods on my shelves. Obliging Clerks. Prompt attention to Customers. W. F. CARTER. To Cut Glass with Shears. A sheet of gloss — a window pane for example — can be cut as easily as a sheet of cardboard. The secret consists in keeping the glass, the shears and the hands under water during the operation. The glass can be cut in straight or curved lines without a break or a crack. This is because the water deadens the vibrations of the shears and the glass. If the least part of the shears comes out of the water the vibration will be Buffieiout to mar the success of the experiment. — L'lllustration. A Candid Heply. "Now bo honest," said the second party to a horse deal, as he slipped the imlter on his exchange. "Is the animal worth carrying home?" "No," replied the former owner frankly, "he ain't, but he's worth leading homo, jt-o-on're going in that direction." — F' 1 * '- \£ - Mngton. ^ji^fica's Seven Wonder*. .^.j-^even wonders of America are -Crossed as follows: Niagara falls, Yellowstone park, Mammoth cave, the Canyons and Garden of the Gods, Colorado; the giant trees, California; the natural bridge, Virginia, and the Yosemite valley. _ During the last three months of the year 1891 over 3,000,000 pounds of silver lead ore were sept into this country from the state of bei^a. Mexico, An Old Rosebush. As long ago as the year 822 Hildesheim is mentioned in history. In that year we are told Louia the Pious, Charlemagne's eon and successor, made it the seat of the bishopric intended by his father to be established at the neighboring town of Elze. Less than a century before Charlemagne had brought the heathen .Saxons into subjection and Christianity was yet new in the land. Qunther, the first bishop, had been canon at the cathedral at Reims'. Three years after his elevation to the new episcopal see he consecrated the first chapel, naming it in honor of the Virgin Mary. The chapel is supposed to have occupied the site under the present cathedral, where the crypt of the new church is built. A pretty rosebush that now clings to the outer wall of the cathedral choir is said by tradition to have grown there since the days of Louis the Pious himself. In the Twelfth century, when the choir and crypt were being enlarged, a protecting hollow wall was built around the rosebush, in order that the vine might continue to grow about the building when the new wall had been completed. A bit of the old arching may be seen behind the altar in the crypt. This is the present voucher for the great age of the rosebush, and it must be admitted that many traditions repose npon a less solid foundation.—Architectural Record. Eating Shoe Bash. In London a century ago it was no uncommon practice on the part of the "fast men" to drink bumpers to the health of a lady out of her shoe. The Earl of Cork, in an amusing paper in The Connoisseur, relates an incident of this kind, and to carry the compliment still further he states that the shoe was ordered to be dressed and served up for supper. "The cook set himself seriously to work upon it. He pulled the upper part (which was of fine damask) into fine shreds and tossed it up into a ragout, minced the sole, out the wooden heel into thin slices, fried them in batter and placed them round the dish for garnish. The f >mpauy testified their affection for the'didy by eating heartily of this ex- qu'jite impromptu." The Color of the Eyes. A famous optician has discovered that women have a larger proportion of brown eyes than men. If in parents the mother has brown eyes and the father blue the chances are eighty-eight to twelve that the girls of the family will be brown eyed, the percentage in favor of the boys having blue eyes being seventy-two te twenty-eight. If the parents have eyes of like color the chances in favor of the children, both male and female, having eyes of the same color ia ninety-two to eight.—Exchange. Ammonia Colors Hair. A few drops of ammonia added to pro- oxide of hydrogen is what gives the beautiful golden color to hair. Without the ammonia one or two applications of the bleach to brown hair imparts a reddish bronze tint to it.—New York Journal. PROFESSIONAL. •^^^,-S^Srf^w*^,^.* GEO. E. CLARKE, ATTORNEY AT LAW.
