Boyle, who has been sick 10 long, is able to be out a little and is igaining health. 1 Immediately following the cold snap Ja8t>week came the mildest weather |ver seen here in January. It has omed like May for a week. Whittemore is organizing a co-opera- [tive elevator company. The farmers f are doing it and have $1,000 raised. Tiey will build a $5,000 plant. A nephew of H. A.i Clock has opened a store in Estherville. Mr. Clock was up to visit him last week and added to the crowd of Algonians there. Sheriff Graham cume in this morning from La Porte, Ind., with a young man named Hamilton, who is under arrest for selling mortgaged property in the north end of the county. The Demorest medal contest was well attended Friday evening, and Geo. Hamilton was the lucky contestant. Among others Miss Nellie Hinchon and Miss Belle Tellier spoke nicely. R. E. Davison bus bought Ed. Bircher's well known stallion ''Romaic" and will keep him on his farm in Portland. This is one of the best horses in the 'county and will be a good addition to Portland. The Olympia, Wash, Tribune has a leap year write up of the unmarried among others: "Dr. jood medical practice, i to please the most sonorous voice in our left car, and would suggest that he be given a solo part. Mr. Shoemaker of Whittemore is having an old-fashioned lightning rod experience. He ordered a rod for $30, the agent came to put up $280 worth, he kept him off the house with a shot gun, and now a suit for the $280 has been begun in the Muscfttine court. Geo. E. Clarke will defend and get the case transferred. These old lightning rod swindles ought to be known to everybody by this time. A few days' visit at Estherville shows great changes to one who remembers it in the days when the old fort wtis built. Nothing remains of that landmark of the frontier but one stump and a couple of depressions where the . wells were dug. The old barn is half on the Jenkins farm at Swan Lake, and half over near Spirit Lake. Estherville is now one of Iowa's best young cities, with three good papers, churches, hotels, railway shops, etc. It is a pleasant place to visit. The toasts of Ambrose A. Call on "Pioneering in Journalism" and of Mrs. L. B. Read on "How We Got There" will have an interest to all early settlers. Mr. Call as editor of the first paper published in Iowa north of Fort Dodge and west of Mason City is justly a pioneer, and Mrs. Read as founder of THE UPPER DES MOINES is scarcely less so. They belong to the very earliest of northwestern Iowa edi- EMTOES' HALF HOLIDAY, They Will Be Here Toiftoffow and Next Day—Preparations Are Now Complete. The Programme Promises a Fine Enter* tertainment from Beginning to End. The final arrangements for the meeting of the editors tomorrow and Friday have been as nearly completed as they cttri,be and unless something unforseen in the way of weather interferes Algona will give the visitors a pleasant reception. The final programme of proceedings is as follows: The editors will meet tomorrow evening for a preliminary business session, and then- go in a body to the residence of Ambrose A. Call, where the normal school will hold a short reception. As the room is limited invitations have been sent to a few of the citizens to be present and assist. Friday forenoon the editors will hold a secret session. In the afternoon carriages will be provided and they will be driven about the city. Friday evening the public programme will begin years ago, and did it in good faith, ought not, in their age, be driven from their homes, or pay extravagant prices for the land which their own endurance in early days, and their own industry since, has made valuable. There was a blunder some place and a wrong somewhere in these transactions. The question is, will these innocent settlers be made to bear the consequences? There was a time when the supreme court of the United States was in doubt as to the lands, and held that the grant to the navigation company extended only to the mouth of the Raccoon river, at Des MoiiiuH. In this belief many of the settlers went on the lands. For 30 years they have lived on them. Their children, HS Mr. Dolliver says, were born there and their dead buried. Let them not bo driven from their homes. SHOWS HOW WE GROW, Prospective Spring Improvements Indicate a Healthy Bnildinff Boom for Algona This Year. And the Blocks that Are Going Up Will Be Substantial Ornaments to Our Little City. men, and notes Ingham; has a and is warrante> fastidious." A trade was made last week by which Samuel Heed becomes owner of the Edens' house, the old Dr. Porbush property. Mr. Reed had a trade arranged for the Dormey property, but now takes 'this. It will make him a fine home, and cost $1,300. Mr. Bonstetter, who was hurt by the Burlington train at West Bend a, short time ago, is able to be out on crutches. The boy who was also hurt will lose his mind, owing to the injury on his head. He was a foundling taken by Mr. Bon- stetter from the eastern asylum. J. E. Stacy, who represents Callanan & Savory in Algona, says the_re is nothing in the suit to disturb their title to the American emigrant swamp lands. He says it is simply a" scheme to get a little tribute out of Callanan & Savery. Phil. C. Hanna writes to LuVerne friends and says that he is enjoying life down on the -equator immensely. He says the southern region wherein he is located is a healthy one and that he has not even been chilly since he landed. Where are the letters he agreed to write about the country? The following item of railroad news comes from Elmore: "If there is anything in the rumor that there would be 700 cars of ties sent to Elmore within . the next month or so, it' means more than the simple repairing of the road. We believe the C. & N. W. is watching the movements of other roads that are planning lines west through Kossuth county." The grand jurors for next term of court to be' held Feb. 29, are J. B. Carr, John Zeller, Wm. Brummond, Geo, Newell, W. S. Stahl, F. P. Butler, Nels Morrick, The pettit jurors are: J. P. Walker, C. T. Chubb, Aug. Madetzke, E, Bacon, L. D. Butts, Andrew Barr, Arthur Gilmore, Frank Bailey, W. P, Giddings, E. P. Keith, Alfred Miller, D. Parke, H. P. Hanson, A. C. Scott, John Finnell. Pearl Pugh, who has been Bowyer's right-hand man for some years, is about' to open up a jewelry store in some neighboring town, not yet fully decided upon. Mr, Bowyer was in Chicago last week looking at stock, and is now off viewing various localities. Jackson, Minn., may be the place selected, Both Mr. Bowyer and Pearl will be interested in the new store. Many farmers of the county, who remember the leading part Lafe Young took in the contest over rail way legislation, will be interested in hearing him Friday evening. He is a fine orator, and as the full seating capacity of the church will be at command there will be room for all. Everybody should assist in giving him and Secretary McFarland a full house. From a notice sent to the State Register we judge that the operatic talent that was displayed at Emmetsburg by the editors will again be exhibited at Algona. The secretary says: "The editorial musicians, who made themselves famous at Emmetsburg (last winter, are expected to be present, reinforced in numbers, and some of the most facile pens in the district have voluntarily Bet themselves to the task of composing 'editorial songs.'" We have pleasing memories of Al, tors and their story of early times in journalism will interest the late comers. Ambrose A. Call will start south the last of this week or first of next, to visit western Louisiana. He is planning to set out a ten-acre orange grove in that section. Geo. E. Clarke hafl arranged to go, but is detained by business. Mr. Clarke, however, will go into the orange grove business. It is claimed thatsome of. the finest orange land in the world is on the gulf coast and is still to be had on reasonable terms. Mr. Call is satisfied that fruit is a success, and will have a grove under headway before returning. Geo. E. Clarke is preparing his argument in an appeal in the case of the Milwaukee road against Callanan & Savery. This is the case Judge Can- decided, the opinion being published in full in these columns at the time. Callanan & Savery claim all actual swamp land whether included in the original selection or not. Judge Carr held that only such land as was selected as swamp belonged to shem. They now appeal to the supreme court, and the outcome will be watched with interest by all owners of low land. A young man named Weir, who has lately come to Palo Alto county, found out last week that Whittemore is a city and that painting it carmine is not as trifling an offense as it used to be in early days. He was up for a plain drunk, and his honor, Mayor Boyle, after casting the stern eye of impartial justice on him, proceeded to read the riot act to him and to assess him $5 for the first offense. The mayor delivered a little discourse also on what the young man's course would lead to and closed with some excellent advice. Whittemore is a bad place for bumming these days. The peace and quiet of Bancroft were disturbed last week by a fistic encounter between an agent of the Des Moines insurance company and a member of the medicine company showing there. The two men engaged first in tossing dollars at a mark, .the rasult being that the insurance man got the dollars. The medicine man when became to the end of his rope reflected that gambling was wrong and wanted his money back. The insurance man said he could have his dollars if he could whip him, which he proceeded to attempt. At first the gods of war were against him, but finally the insurance man slipped and thereupon the vender of kidney cure, got in his fell work, leaving black marks but getting no dollars. After the fracas was ended there being talk of arrests, fines, etc., the insurance man hired a team and arrived at Algona about midnight, and thence wended his way to other parts. A new evidence of what Kossuth can do in fruit was shown Monday by four samples of seedling apples grown on Jerre Grover's farm in Portland. Rod. Jain brought them in and in company with J. E. Stacy we tasted this original county fruit. Each of the four varieties is a 'good keeper, and a little russet like apple is a heavy bearer and keeps till June. They were excellent winter apples, all of them, anfl Mr. Jain says are very prolific. Our readers probably know that there is no assurance what will come from apple seeds. A seedling may be the best apple in the world or a common crab, no matter what apple the seeds are from. Once a good seedling apple is secured it is propagated by grafting. Our farmers cannot do better than graft these winter apples, for they are the making of the true winter varieties for this country. We have fall apples already, but northern Iowa wants a reliable winter apple. It will pay anyone to see Mr. Grover's apples. promptly at 7:30 o'clock, and promptly moans promptly. As the doors will 1 be kept clbse'd during each performance, all should be in at 7:30 sharp. At 9:30 o'clock the public are invited to the court house hall, where a banquet will be spread, and to which all are invited. Tickets for the banquet can be had at the door. As some of the best and most enjoyable features of the programme will be at banquet, it was thought best _to allow everyone to participate, and give it in a hall equal to the occasion. The pro- grammes of the various exercises are as follows: THE NORMAL SCHOOL RECEPTION. A musicale has been arranged to be given by some of our best musicians at the reception tendered the editors at the residence of Mr. Call. The pro- gramme is: Piano duet.

The man got nothing, the trial lasting two days. <, The case of Miss Lalor, who was dismissed from the Iowa Falls school for calling the scholars by nicknames, is before the state superintendent. The county superintendent decided against her. Five Northwestern freight cars were thrown from the track near the Des Moines river near Fort Dodge, Sunday, and completely wrecked. The engine and caboose stayed on the track and no one was hurt. A broken flange was supposed to be the cause. A Mississippi man sends back a last year's free ticket for the Independence races to C. W. Williams and writes: " Dear Sir: I used this comp last year at your track during the August meet. Accept thanks for the same. It is all that I have to show for $1,200. Happy new year! You need not send me one for 1892. Yours truly, Retired Sport." Another veracious Iowa tale comes from Chickasaw county. In a well 123 feet deep which, when the wind blows from the southeast, would blow your hat out of your hand if held over it, but when the wind is from the northwest the suction is so great that it would draw it into the well. The rumble of the wind in the well may be heard several rods distant. The Register says Congressman Dolliver has introduced a bill to indemnify the settlers on the Des Moines river lands. An appropriation of $250,000 is asked for to secure the relinquishment of the titles to the land. In an interview Mr. Dolliver stated that his bill was intended to indemnify those only who were bona fide settlers on the lands. It is not the intention to reward any squatters or speculators. The bill ought to have. the support of the Iowa delegation. The men who entered upon the lands in question 80 FROM THE COUNTY TOWNS. LU VERNE. LuVERNE, Jan. 25.—Parties from Renwick are coming to LuVerne for coal as there is a coal famine there. Mu.tt. StafCacher of Renwick was on our streets Tuesday hand-shaking with the boys.

Snyder, who is working on the M. & St. L. as section hand, had one Side of his face frozen so bad that he had to lay off this week. WESLEY. WESLEY, Jan. 26.—The cold weather has broken and the warm sun causes the " beautiful" to disappear. Quite a number of our townspeople are down with the grip. Mrs. Sterling Daniels, living two miles north of town, has been dangerously sick for the past week with the grip, but is some better now_. Our merchants are all doing a thriving business these days, while the farmers are marketing their produce. ' It is rumored that a young man and lady left our town the other day for the purpose of getting married. We have looked the town over and find there is a couple missing, and have come to the conclusion that the above is about correct. Wm. Walton is talking of going to Sioux City in a few days with the intention of remaining there all summer. What will Wesley do for a constable? G. A. Frink has been on the sick list for the past ten days with a sore throat, but is now able to be around again. Wesley schools are moving along nicely. Prof. Sorenson moves everything along with neatness and dispatch. Markets: Wheat, 71c; oats, 21c; barley, 30@35c; flax, 76c; corn, 21c; timothy seed, 85c; hogs, $3.75; hay, loose, $4; pressed, $5.50. F. Hume is putting in a large stock of lumber. We notice several carloads of cattle have been shipped from Wesley lately. J. R. Waite's family are visiting with friends in Illinois. What has been promising for some weeks to be n, good spring in Algona for new buildings 'is rapidly developing into a building boom. There are already enough new structures decided on and plans arranged for to make this by far the most important season the town has yot had. Before fall we shnll have business streets which will stand comparing with anything in this "nock of the woods," and the permanent additions will bo of n character to do credit to the. builders. The buildings which arc'absolutely assured arc as follows: THE CATHOLIC CHURCH. Father Nloholls has begun nctivo work towards erecting the fine church edifice that wns mentioned lust fall. Ho says that it will bo built this summer. We learn from other sources that it will cost $10,000 or $12,000 and be one of the handsomest in this part of the state. This is to,bo expected, as the Catholics never build poor buildings. THE NEW STATE HANK. The plans are about completed for the building to bo put up whore tho Taylor and Carter store rooms now stand. It will-be after tho design of 'the handsomest bank building in Des Moines, will be finished in stone and pressed brick, and be in every way one of the finest buildings in Iowa, heated by steam and with all the modern appliances. THE AMBROSE A. CALL BLOCK. Mr. Call assures us that a throo or four front office building will bo put up north of the First National bank building as soon as workican begin. It will be two stories high, finished in white brick as the bank building is. The lower rooms will be occupied by those now in the frame buildings it will replace. This will be a handsome and substantial addition to Thorington street. THE FERGJUSON-HOXIE BLOCK. The plans ares finished for the front of the two-front, two-story brick, which Wm. K. Ferguson and H. Hoxie will build east of the postofflce. It will be of pressed brick and stone, with terra cotta ornaments, and one of the most stylish fronts yet designed. Work will begin as soon as the season will permit. Mr. Hoxie has bought the lot adjoining L. Lessing's and will move the old drug store building there. THE JAS. TAYLOR STORE. The two bricks now occupied by Jas. Taylor and W. F. Carter will bo moved to the lots east of the Courier office, and there rebuilt into a two-front store for Jas. Taylor. The front will bo now and of pressed brick. This will make a handsome and roomy store. THE TENNANT HOUSE. . Mr. Tennant has plans under way for enlarging his present hotel or building now. He says he-may build of brick on the south corner of his block, or raise his present building a story. In any event he shall enlarge and greatly improve the Tennantj house this spring. IN GENERAL. Other buildings are talked of, but these enumerated are certain. They insure a boom for Algona. The only thing still unprovided for is an opera house, and in the general movement that will no doubt yet be provided for. It is sure to come. barn $JOO; T- vlor and Hume, addition to drug store $200; Wesley saving bank, addition to their building, at a cost of $250. In Park addition L. G. Potter, new house. .

"""""""""^ c Our Correspondent Tells of Some of the Improvements of 1801— Wesley is a Live Town. Wesley within the past year has kept pace with all of our sister towns in the way of permanent improvements.

D., we quote: "I was taken with a bad cold, which settled on my lungs, cough set in and finally terminated in consumption. Four doctors gave me up; saying I could live but a short time. I gave myself up to my Saviour, determined if I could not stay with my friends on earth I would meet my absent ones above.
