The Grange store has a new adver- tiaement. Bead what Langdon & Hudson say this week. . Supper at Congregational church tomorrow evening. Lu Verne has built $42,000 worth the past year, according to the NOWB. H. S. Langdon is recovering from hia sick spell, but is still very nervous. Lewis Frye is reading medicine with Dr. Morse. He will make a good M. D. Dr. Morse is talking of buying the old Leggett property in the north part of tov^n. County Attorney Joslyn is now found In B. F. Reed's old office over Galbraith's. J. E. Mclnroe is planning to move to town, and will probably occupy the Buell house. John .Chapin, an old resident of Buffalo Fork, was up from Humboldt visit- Ing last week. . J. E. Beattio, Whittemore's rustling merchant, has an announcement to the public this week. Peter Purvis is making the front for the new bank at Burt. It will be a good looking and substantial building. There will be no examination for teachers until the last Friday and Saturday of February, so says Supt. Reed. •The Thorington house has closed temporarily. We understand that the present managers will open it again soon. Marriage licenses have been issued to Stanislaw Zumkowski and Barbara Gilske, Frank Miller and Mary E. Carter. Geo. Simpkins is getting over his late illness. His son Henry was down from Bancroft last week, but has returned. Rantzow and Hubbard will bo taken to Estherville Monday. Their trial begins there next week, court opening Monday. Our St. Jo. neighbors seem to be happy. Small girls are reported lately at Byron Christiansen's and at Frank Devine's. D. A. Haggard was off in Calhoun •county yesterday on business. Dave is called for about all the time somewhere in the state. Another Demorest silver medal contest is arranged for Friday evening, Jan. 22. It will be held at the Congregational church. W. E. Morrison writes to Samuel Mayne that he will probably stay in Morrisonville. He has good prospects for success there. Father Lenihan of Ft. Dodge is sending out circulars concerning the Russian relief fund. Ho is cornmitteeman for the Tenth district. The past week has looked more like winter than- any we have had yet. The country still needs six inches of snow to make our climate really agreeable. Mrs. Medin, living near Dan. Long's place, died Sunday morning of typhoid fever, leaving a husband and five children She was buried yesterday at 2 o'clock. Wesley shipped in December, according to the Reporter, 124 cars of hay, 10 cars of hogs, 10 cars of pats, five cars of wheat, 13 cars of flax, six cars of cattle, and two of barley, 170 cars in all. Messrs. Ames, Clark, and the Simpkins boys start soon for Missouri. They go to a point in the western part of the state and south of the middle. They expect to raise fruit among other things. . Clark Peck has traded for the Clock place. Mr. Clock gets the house Mr. Peck owned on the opposite side of the L street and will now sell that. Mr. { Peck gets one of the finest properties . 4n town, and will make it his home. A young man named Casler of Bancroft had his leg badly crushed Friday ' while working in one of Col. Spencer's presses at Wm. Stockwell's. As usual he was pushing in hay with his his foot. It was not necessary to amputate the foot, but permanent injury will result. Owners of lands deeded by Callanan & Savory will be interested in the report of the suit begun in Carroll county. It is not likely, however, that there is anything in the suit, and in any ^Tont Callanan & Savory's warrant will protect all purchasers, for they are amply responsible. This week We furnish GUI' t'eaders a graphic and entertaining letter on Danish farming written by Ernest .Laage. His description of how things are done in the old country shows that we have still something to learn in farming. His letter will pay every reader for a careful perusal. An election was held by Company F • Saturday evening to fill the vacancy left by the resignation of Lieut. Creed. H. J, Edens was promoted to the first lieutenancy, and Collie Chubb was chosen second lieutenant. This puts two excellent men in the chief places next to the captain. We note in Monday's Register: '' The first caucus was held' in the club room • at 3 p. m. It was secret and none but menibers were admitted. On motion of John G. Smith of Algona, Representative Wyokoff of Appanoose was chosen temporary chairman, and H. S. Wilcox was make temporary clerk." D, T. Smith is npw the local agent for the Adams Express company. John. G. Smith held the agency until it became necessary for him to be absent so much at Des Moines. " Punt" will be a popular agent, and as he has had full charge of the business before, he steps Into control without any inconvenience. & gentleman f «p Pwjght, IU,, writes toys for so«&e copies of last week's paper with W; E. Morrison's article on the Keeley cure. In his note be says: "W. E. made his home with us during hie stay at Dwight and by his gentlemanly deportment, kind heart, and original sayings was a general favorite. 1 ' Mary E. Pevine, a daughter of Kossuth's pioneer, John Devine, was married to Michael Noonan of Bode last week; ' The Livermbre Gazette says there in a romance behind this marriage, as the parties were engaged to each other twenty years before and for reasons unknown broke of, They will live at Bode. A telegram from Job ft G. Smith yesterday announced that the senate was in a deadlock and unable to organize. Without Senator Engle the democrats don't have a majority, and he will not help theW except they allow him to name a large snare of the officials. This is a pretty pickle, and no telling when it will end. The Register foots up Bancroft's shipments for 1891. The total is 928 cars, of which 421 were grain, 277 were stock and 228 were hay. These figures speak for themselves. They are astonishingly large in stock and grain, and show what a territory is tributary to Bancroft. When KoHButh is settled up what will her yearly export amount tor Perry Burlingamehascut up his seed* ling apple, and It turns out to be a fine tasting, sour winter apple, good to keep till March or April. He is now going to have some expert graft it and develop a new breed of apples. The l< Kossuth Seedling" would be a good name if it pans out. What better answer can 'be given to the doubting Thomas fruit growers than to get a fine now variety up here in northern Iowa? W. H. Ingham is in receipt of a paper noting the sudden death of James A. Shedd at Burlington, Vt. Mr. Shedd was well known In this section, where he has at one time and another owned considerable property. The account says Mr. Shedd died penniless, though it is known that he was at one time worth several thousand dollars. The cause of his financial loss is attributed to " bad investments in the west."'The county attorney was over at Wesley last week to investigate a case where Louis Klinepeter's two boys had been been arrested for stealing hay. He found that two Corwith parties were quarreling over the ownership of the hay and one of them had hired the boys to haul it. The boys knew nothing about any disputed ownership and did their job. As soon as the facts were made known the boys were promptly dismissed. There was neither sense nor law in their arrest. Mayor E. S. Ormsby of Emmetsburg, who was made an editor by vote a year ago,.writes a pleasant note concerning the coming meeting at Algona. He says ''I shall look forward to the meeting with great anticipations. The many times I was forced to eat and sleep with you [Algona] made me in love with you and I admire the town, now city. The railroad and telegraph unite :Us closely and I trust our unity and strength may continue to grow and our power for good increase daily." Word comes from Emmetsburg that Horace Dawson, a former Algonian, and lately a barber in the "burg," has skipped for pants unknown, leaving a wife and two children destitute and some unpaid debts. Among others he left his mother $200 short, having borrowed that amount of her. Mrs. Dawson is well known in Algona. Her husband's death in a blizzard many years ago was-one of the most terrible of any In early years, as he crawled home many miles after his feet and legs and arms had frozen-. It is definitely settled that A. D. Clarke will move his buildings occupied by Jas. Taylor and W. F. Carter in the spring and put them west of FOBS' tailor shop. The lots are bought, and Thos. Hendei'son has the job of moving. The Taylor store room will be moved intact, and Jim will go right along with it, and blossom out at the new stand in a fine double front store. Carter stays and has a room in the new bank building. Mr. Clarke says he will change the buildings somewhat and put up a fine front pi pressed brick. With two rooms giving a space of 40x100 feet the Taylor store will be one of the finest in northern Iowa. The public installation of the K. P. lodge at Bancroft last Friday evening was one of the notable events of the season. C. A. Schaft'ter and E. W. Archer of Eagle Grove were up as special installing officers, and everything went off in the best manner imaginable. The ladies had decorated, the hall nicely, some very fine paintings done by Mrs, Graham being noticeable adornments. Music was furnished by Mrs. Campbell, Mrs. 'Berryman, Miss Johnson, Miss Lutie Wallace, H. N. Renfrew, who were assisted by Miss Randall of the normal school at the organ, and that Bancroft has some fine singers no one will doubt who was present. An elaborate banquet at the hotel closed the programme, and at midnight the knights and their guests scattered for their homes. It was a finely conducted affair from beginning to end by the Bancroft people, and would have been a credit to any town in Iowa, Geo. E.

Johnson came down from Minneapolis last week for a visit. H. A. Clock goes to Hampton In about a month to open a dry goods store. E. L. Ward and family of Bancroft leave soon for California. Mr. Ward was the pioneer furniture dealer of our northern neighbor. Geo. Buskirk came in this morning from the south. He is now located near Appleton City, Mo., and IB doing well, He will visit here a few days. Mr. and Mrs. S. C, Spear will go to California early in February, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Dingley also plan to go, and the party may arrange to get off together. Mrs. Mclntyre and daughter, Jennie, went to New Hampton, Monday, and will make their home there for a year. The house in Algona will be closed. At the end of that time it is expected that Mr. Bushnell will close out his business and return with them to Algona. J. W. Wadsworth is in Des Moines attending the annual meeting of the state agricultural society. At this meeting a successor is elected _to S. S. Sessions as director. Our citizen is a candidate for re-election, and it is hoped will be .successful. Ho went to Des Moines last Friday. IN MEMORIAM, The Remains of Mrs. Maggie Bushnell Brought to Algoua for Interment. The remains of Mrs. Maggie Bushnell were brought to Algona from New Hampton Wednesday morning ol last week and were accompanied by Mr. Bushnell and the three older children. Mr. and Mrs. Hancock of New Hampton also came. The funeral was held at the Mclntyre home Friday at 11 o'clock. The house was crowded by friends of the family. The funeral sermon was delivered by the Congregational pastor of New Hampton, of whose church Mrs. Bushnell was a member. He was assisted by Rev. Davidson, and the exercises including the music were well suited to the occasion. At their conclusion the remains were carried to the cemetery, where they were interred by the side of her father's. Mrs. Bushnell had entered her 33d year, being born in 1859, and most of her life had been spent in Algona. Her father was the pioneer hardware merchant of the town and brought his family here at an early day. In 1879 she was married to Mr. Bushnell, and many who attended her funeral Friday stood in the same rooms to witness the happiness of her wedding. Shortly after her marriage she went with her husband and has known Algona since only as a visitor. She was a girl of bright and vivacious temperament, a women of great energy and ambition. Her efforts for her family were untiring, and in all she undertook she worked with zeal. Her friends in her New Hampton home as in Algona were limited only by the bounds of her acquaintance. By all her death will be sincerely mourned. But perhaps to the little circle of young people who grew up with her in the infancy of Algona—a circle broken before by death and scattered now in many states—there wiil come a more personal sense of loss than to her later acquaintances. May she vest in peace. HIS HAND TAKEN OFF. Oscar Naudaln the Unfortunate Victim of a Bad Accident. Oscar Naudain suffered a great misfortune last Friday, losing his left hand in C. B.- Hutchins' clover huller. They were at work northeast of Burt, and Oscar by some means put his hand near some tearing hooks, which caught it and scraped every bit of flesh and tissue from the front of the hand, besides tearing out the bones. The injured man was brought to Burt; but too late for the train and had _to lay over till Saturday before getting home, Drs. Morse and Pride were called and Sunday amputated the hand at the wrist. This is a bad loss to an active young man, and one his friends will all join in regretting. , MISOEL' \NEOUS MATTERS. \ _—. Death of Mn 'prrln Calkins—Evangelist i pier Is Coming, Another of R suth's pioneers passed away last week. Mrs. Orrin Calkins of Plum Creek is numbered with the majority, her funeral being held Monday at the home, and her remains being laid to rest at Buffalo Forks. Mr. and Mrs. Calkins came to Kossuth in 1862 and spent a year at the home of W. H, Ingham on Plum Creek. They then! located at their present place east of the river, near R, J> Hunt's. Mr. Calkins was the first school director in that section and built the first school house. Mrs. Calkins was a »very large woman, weighing'over 400 pounds, but always able to be about until her sickness began. She leaves a large family of children, many of them well known in Algona, Evangelist C. "Wi Palmer. Rev, Dorward hands us the following notice of the evangelist soon to be in Algona: "The Daily Republican of Newton, Kansas, of Jan. 6 says of C. W. Palmer: He comes to us armed with the cannon of the Word and the sword of the Spirit, God has belted and girded him for mighty victories. He never tramples the rights of his fellow ministers under his feet. All people washed in the blood are his brothers and friends. Our city is receiving a measureless blessing, and are only in the beginning of the work, The field is white and ready for the harvest and the reapers are multiplying every day. Last evening some of the most wonderful accounts of prayer answered were related." Rev. Dorward adds: In a recent letter the evangelist states that they have 25 cottage prayer meetings a day scattered through the city, and hundreds are offering themselves ifor per60'\ftl work. On account ol the Xeweep the meeting has taken in of 8,,OOQ, Bra, Palmer cannot r%ach Algona until the th. 20 He has positively promised to be here then. Meetings will be continued in the Baptist church until he comes. . Thcliocnl Market. rices foe produce are not much changed from the quotations of a week ago. Wheat sells at 70@74cV oats, 23c; corn, 25c*; flax, 70@76cV timothy seed, 85c. The hog market has an upward tendency, and good hogs ard bringing $3.50; Receipts of all farm produce are fairly good. A good many hogs are being brought to Algona, though many are marketed at the smaller towns, where practically the same prices can be had. Of grain the bulk of receipts is in oats and corn, for which there is a ready market, especially the latter, so much being consumed for cattle fattening among the feeders. Only a comparatively small amount of wheat is coming in. FROM THE COUNTY TOWNS. LU VERNE. Lu VERNE, Jan. 11.—John Smith of Whittemoro was in' our burg last week between trains.
