trpram MIS MOINES; ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 17, f HE CITY. F. S. Stough is making a cut sale on Hall Ibis winter gdods. Regular meeting of W. C. T. Cf. on fFriday afternoon at 3 o'clock. A series of special meetings will begin at the Methodist church next Sun- lay. Geo. W. Hanna has collected near- |ly $50 for the Russian fund in Lull Verne. Loads of rock are piling in these days ! where the new blocks are going up in | the spring. Plum Creek has raised $52.35 for the I Russians, and the Second ward in Al- ?gona$35.60. A new boy at Frank Winkel's occa- ' eidns a genial atmosphere in Frank's I neighborhood. i Miss Amy Wallace has a big dancing class at Bancroft, and the Register says i is meeting with success. ; Geo. Williams is the lucky getter 'of i an $8 a month pension^ A gun-shot ; wound is the occasion of it. Geo. Holloway has sold his Phoenix barn at Bancroft to Jas. Gallion. George got a big farm in the trade. The grand army are arranging to observe Washington's birthday with a bean supper. It comes Feb. 22. '$; The farmers meet at Whittemore on $ Saturday to report on the stock sub- ''"! ; . scribed for their $5,000 grain elevator. The LuVerne News says that B. A. ) Myers is now in the live stock business ' at his old home at Panola, III. Good luck to Barney. It is rumored that among Algona's I new buildings this season will be a residence on Frank Nicoulin's half block north of his shops. ' Elmer Wilbur has bought our Mr. Bruner's interest in the barber business I in Algona, and Mr. Bruner will join his brother in Bopne. The Wesley Reporter says Hancock > county has been bled $1,800 for stock ' killed by mad dogs. There's millions in the "'mad dog" theory. Messrs. Conner & Cowan were over at Emmetsburg last week making final settlement on the McCormick bank block they built last summer. P. M. Barslou has sold his store business in Bancroft to Mallory & Hofius, and Gus. Steinburg has sold his billiard hall. Trades are lively at Bancroft. Ed. .Bircher has been driving some handsome Norman ^mares about town the"past week. Tne';Ji"are from the lot lately imported by Stephens & Bircher. It'is a little late to be still talking of the editorial meeting, but Al. Adams' report is too good to let pass and we clip at length from his three-column article. We learn that Charlie Man tor has secured a pension, but do not know how large'. Charlie was a good soldier, and a pension will benefit him now materially. The new Burt bank will open as early as March 1, or before, and Ed. Murtagh is getting ready to move to •Vjs new location. The bank building J about finished. 7 The thermometer got down to 19 be- jiow, Monday morning, but was up again ;)to a living place by 10 o'clock. This is ? the third sudden drop in the tempera- v;l£'ture. But it lasts only a few hours. ''-I 5 !'ft ^h* 3 accident insurance company who '4||prefused to pay the $5,000 policy on Dr. IjfttSStraw, Mrs. Geo. E. Clarke's brother, JgpSljas reconsidered and settled the matter, *g§!|i|>aying tl i full claim. IISiThe farmers of Burt meet Saturday perfect arrangements for opening sir co-operative elevator. They have m discussing the matter vigorously 1 will decide definitely at that time. !>ed Miller has* added another eighty his big farm in Plum Creek, paying K»iyt,u.-.y;*J an acre caih for raw land. He is BKifMpw planning on a two-story addition to iMjilBis house, to be built this spring. It ks«fe u be 16x26 feet on the ground. AtlAtJ 1 ., 1 Jenswold, a former Emmets- llpiurg lawyer and an old time student at gjAigona college, has been offered a con- Jf^ressional nomination and a judgeship Ijsince going to Duluth. He is getting 1 also in the practice. The Republican has put in a Camp|bell press in the place of its old Prouty. Pf'This gives it substattially as good press ^facilities as the other two papers in town have. We congratulate the Republican on catching up with the procession. Company F will have a public inspection at the court house hall this evening. The public is invited to be out and see the boys drill. Since the stage is out of the hall there will be room for some fine maneuvers, and the people will enjoy the spectacle. Lincoln's birthday was observed last Friday evening in the parlors of the Congregational church. An excellent essay on Lincoln by M. Starr, a talk by J. R. Jones and an able paper by Prof. Dixson on education made the_ pro- gramme. This is the first meeting'of a Congregational social and literary club. The second comes March 4. In enclosing a little of the needful for his paper Jas, McLaren writes from Alhambra, Cal.: "Was over to see M, L. Clarke yesterday. He has been a • sick man, but is now on the gain. Dr. Barly said he might sit up tomorrow. We have had a splendid rain and grain looks well and is growing rapidly." An important business deal was made last week by which Geo, Sirnpkins and son Henry come into possession of G. R. Woodworth's Bancroft store, and our old-time merchant gets the Simpkins half section farm west of town, Henry Simpkins, we learn, will take charge of the store. Mr, Woodworth, it is rumored, will make his home in Chicago, where Rome is now at work for a big business firm. The dailies last week noted the issuance of a pension which recalls early county history. The • pension is to Uncle Jas. Henderson under the new law on account of the death of his son, John. John went south in 1863 with several other Kossuth hoys, was wounded at Nashville just above the hip, and was taken to the hospital at Memphis. As that became too crowded a lot of the wounded were ordered to Cairo, and on the boat going up the river John died. He was older than Thomas and younger than Robert, -our well-known citizens. The amount of Mr. Henderson's pension we have not learned, but it will come handy to him in his old age. Stough has a word to offer in the advertising columns . this week which ought to interest those who are in search of boots and shoes at clearing sale prices. . Bancroft is determined to keep pace with iis neighbors in the matter of civic societies, and will have a lodge of Odd Fellows. A delegation from the Algona lodge, headed by District Deputy E. H. Clarke, go there this evening for the purpose of effecting the organization, which begins •irith a charter membership of about 25. The county boom has had an ominous backset. Nearly 20 days have passed without a marriage license being issued, and as if this were not bad enough, one young man has rescinded a license taken out before. He explained to the clerk that the girl had changed her mind, and that he would like his money back, as he had no further use for the document. This situa- ation is alarming and should receive attention. Rev. Robt. Carroll has held several largely-attended meetings at the Baptist church. He came from Fort Dodge, and the Times in noticing his departure says: "Rev. Robt. Carroll held several interesting meetings at the Baptist church. He goes from this cityjto Algona, where the Baptist society Is in the midst of a remarkable revival effort. The Baptists seem to be taking the lead in revival work in this part of the state this winter." The Emmetsburg Reporter makes a suggestion of Judge Carr for a place on the appellate court, which the legislature is considering. If the bill becomes a law all northern Iowa should join in an effort to bring this about. Judge Carr is without a superior among the •rowing men on the district bench, and is future will be limited only by. his opportunities. When the court is established Kossuth will join in an organized effort to this end. There will be three judges to be 'selected. Let Judge Carr be one. A business change of importance is the organization of co-operative creamery companies to take the Wallace & Reed plants at Algona and Sexton. The movement is already under headway and the prospects are now that a plant will be put in at the German church in Prairie. The success of these creameries insures a good profit to the farmers who are joining, and we learn that at all three points named the owners of cows are anxious to become stock-holders. This is a good move. The Sioux City Journal says that the line of rairoad that has been surveyed across the north end of the county is part of the Winona & Southwestern, and not a Burlington line at all. Some color is given to this idea from the fact that the survey did not stop at the Burlington line at Estherville but ran west to the line of the Sioux City & Northern, thus making a short line to Sioux City. Those posted still believe, however, that the line belongs to the Burlington road. The survey crosses the Northwestern below Ledyard near Judge Cook's farm. A road may be built this summer and may not. Our northern neighbors ought not to take any chances, however, and ought to make big offers rather than have a, crossing away from both Bancroft and Ledyard. Ledyard is to be the scene of a lively contest to determine "what's in a name." An injunction was served by Jones & Stephens on the Weimers, last week, to prevent their using the title " Bank of Ledyard," and at the coming term of court, which begins Feb. 29, an effort will be made to make the injunction permanent. The Weimers have secured the services of W. B. Quarton and will fight the matter as well as they can. The facts seem to be mixed, but Jones & Stephens claim that it was well known that they intended to put a bank in Ledyard by that name, that they have a lot of notes outstanding payable to the " Bank of Led yard, "and that they have issued circulars invitingbusinessfor that insti- tion. That is the reason they want the name for their bank. Kossuth county may entertain the court visitors at Emmetsburg this week, the Prairie township bridge case coming on for bearing over there yesterday. Our readers will remember the facts as they occurred, a traction engine being wrecked by falling through the bridge over Prairie Creek. The county is represented by the county attorney, assisted by Judge Cook, and Geo. E. Clarke appears for the plaintiffs. Among the witnesses who will go to the Burg are the owners of the engine, Messrs Studer, Immerfall, and Rahm, and also Thos. Henderson, L. D. Lovell, Krate Lamberson, G. H. Peters, Alpheus Johnson, and others. There is talk that the case may be postponed till next term, but it may come on this week. Judge Cook was in town Monday. .

He Tells in His Own Quaint Way How They Were Used in Aljona at the Editorial Meeting:. Nothin* Very "Chilly" About This— What He Intended to Do With McFurlanu's Speech. Al. Adams in the Humboldt Independent: It was with beating hearts and brimming eyes—figuratively speaking as regards some and pathetically speaking as regards others, and the writer does not deny that he belongs to the latter class—that the editorial writer pulled himself together and bade adieu—Ou Revoir, as it were—to his kind entertainers and hosts for three days, the good people of Algona. The writer knowing by experience the large heartedness and the wide open hospitality of Algona's citizens came early and selected a reserved seat that he has since decided to name the "Loveliest of all" and the memory of those three days will make up for many a rip and tear the editorial harness has experienced in the past. * * * Thursday the visitors attended, by special invitation, a reception and mu- sicalo at the elegant home of Mr. and Mrs. A. A. Call, given by the teachers of the Northern Iowa Normal school. As the Independent has for 20 years been a constant visitor to this model home of the northwest, you may be sure we enjoyed this occasion greatly and took occasion to sit on the nice chairs, handle tbo curiosities gathered from many lands and talk to the pretty girls present as if we had been members of the same family for years. Friday forenoon was taken up in- the business-of the association. In the afternoon carriages were driven to various points of interest about the city. The public school building got the first overhauling and Prof. Dixson and Miss !ramer, Miss Wilkinson and Miss Whitney gave some fine exhibitions of what their pupils bad already learned. It was creditable and indicated conclusively that Algona has educators that take high rank and whose work deserves the fullest appreciation of the people. Prom here the party went to the Wallace creamery in the southeast part of town, where Mr. Wallace gave an exhibition of the work of the Jobanson butter extractor. This little machine takes the sweet milk direct from the cows And separates and churns the cream all in oncaction andthebutter comes out of the machi ne ready for working and salting. It is a great machine and will revolutionize butter making. From the creamery the party rode past the Algona nurseries managed by thoseold settlers, the Stacy s. A few minutes were taken at the farm of C. L. Lund to look at his fine herds and comfortable and convenient farm buildings, but Mr. Lund has such deep rich soil on his farm at this time of the year that the editors were satisfied to examine the admirable arrangement of everything from the carriages and did not get out. Mr. Lund is fitting 500 head of- steers for the export market and he is minded to export them himself if he can't get a pretty good thing in New York. The procession then wended its way to the C., M. & St. P. depot, viewing the elevators, the mills, and the cold storage of the Boardman creamery. Then Harvey neaded the procession for the city cemetery and we made up our mind that it was all over with us for this life, when just as we had worked up a spirit of resignation that was beautiful to behold, the leader stopped short of the city of tombs at the conservatory of Mr. J. P. Fohlin, where everybody was invited to visit the home of the flowers. There were some fine specimens in full blossom, a pretty contrast with the winter scene outside. Each visitor was decorated by Mr. F. with a handsome bouquet which will long remind the recipients of his beautiful flowers. The normal school grounds were passed on the return trip. The brickyards and watermill was visited and the drive ended at the G. A, B. hall, which was the rallying place for the party and where the business sessions were held. Friday evening a large audience of citizens and visitors was called to order at the Congregational church at a little before 8 o'clock, and a fine pro- gramme was rendered. The meeting was presided over by the president of the association, Mr. Harvey Ingham, who called the order of exercises in a most gracious and pleasing manner. Rev. Davidson lead in a very appropriate invocation. Dr. L. A. Sheetz then gave an address of welcome that was one of the finest efforts in that line we have ever listened to. F. Q. Leo, on the part of the editors, aptly responded in a manner which convinced all that his selection for that duty was appropriate. Then followed a beautiful bird song by the Train sisters of the Fort Dodge Times, which enraptured the audience, who called an encore. W. M, McFarland then commenced the solid work of the evening by a paper on "The Moral in Newspaper Work." It was a fine thing and we are sorry he lost the manuscript so soon after it was delivered. We fully expected to effect a considerable reformation among our republican editorial brethren by the use of that article. Miss Randall of the normal school rendered a fine vocal selection, and Miss Maud Cowan gave a selection from Will Carleton, showing the theory that many people have of the editorial profession. Mr. J. B. Hungerford of the Carroll Herald gave " The Personality of the Editor" in a short paper that was one,of the best things of the whole meeting. It should be read by every person who aspires to write for press. The Algona quartette, consisting of Miss Setohell, Mrs. E. G, Bowyer, Mr. D. T. Smith and Frank Tellier, gave a beautifiul piece of music, which closed the meeting. The editors and nearly all the large audience repaired to the court house hall, where a banquet wa's spread that was fit for a Chicago board of trade to sit dowii to. The room had been nicely decorated with plants and flowers and the tables were adorned with the best the season could afford from town 01 iounti-j'. And the enliibles, from the iuxurious.bivalves to the fleecy angels' di covered a range Hint many a live- dollar-a-plato banquet could not come up to. The ladies of Algona, under the eadership of Mrs. T. H. Lantry, deserve especial praise for their elegant .ay-out. There was nothing short. " The feast of reason and the flow of soul,"after the inner man was filled, was a very happy affair. J. R. Jones responded to " Our Guests" in a very felicitious manner. The compliment was returned by the solid editor, Hon. H. H. Bush of Garner, in a inost happy way. " What to Read," by Mrs. Ingham, was a very interesting paper, as was also Prof. Chaffee's paper on " Art and Romance in Advertising." Bros. Sanderson and Ormsby of Emtnetsburg made " Editor's Grip," and "Algona, Past and Present," more like good old wine, spnrldjng and bright, while W. I. Branagnn of the Eintnetsburg Democrat took the cake in his "Out-Organization." Personally the editor of the Independent desires to make due acknowledgement of favors at the hands of the the who'e cmft in Algona. To our old 'riends, Mr. and Mrs. A. ID, Clarke and 'amily and Dr. and Mils. H. C. McCoy 'or a pleasant home and creature eom- ftr-ts during our stay in Algona. To our old-time friends, Mrs. Jane Walters and Mrs. W. J. Lang, for a pleasant reunion and review of old pioneer days, ind to everybody else. We took especial interest in going through the ine general stores of our friends Geo. L. Galbraith and Jas. Taylor. In fact we owe more debts individually and collectively to Algona people than we can ever pay, BO we have decided to let .hem go right on growing larger and .ry to compromise on a per cent, some time in the future. Algona has improved very much .n the past live years. Its fine :>rick and stone school house is an ornament of which any city may be jroud. Its new waterworks is another aseful improvement that shows the pro- jfressivcness of her citizens. The many seautiful residences and tall church spires all point to a people who want ihe best, and wanting it, have it. Wo ay our tribute at your feet, good people; may you live long and may your food men, your kind matrons, your allant sons,and beautiful daughters bo Tbundantly prospered in everything .hey may do.

Dutton at rfankato, Minn., was spread by the daily papers last week, and also news of his preliminary hearing before the city magistrate, resulting in his being jound over in $1,000 bonds to meet the rand jury. Gib.'s father, David Dutton of Sherman, went up to Mankato to earn the facts, and Thursday Geo. E. Jlarke repaired to the north, and on Friday Gib. came home, having put up iis bull. His hearing comes in May. The facts, as we learn them, are that Gib. has been selling township rights to some patent fence. He had sold a ight to a man named H. H. Shouf. In naking his note Shouf wrote only one 3. When Gib. went to the bank to sell the note it was refused because it lad but one H, and Gib. shortly re- Burned with the other initial written in. Shouf swears that he did not write the nitial, and charges Gib. with forgery, le also swears that ho never signed .he note knowingly, but that he supposed he was signing a duplicate contact, and charges Gib. with swindling. 3ib. is held under $800 bonds on both sharges.-' The story of the defendant is that after the bank refused the note be sent his man. to Shout's to have the other initial added, and that he ro- .urned with the full name written in. As to swindling ho says that Shouf signed the contract, the duplicate, and .he note in addition, so that that story a untrue, and there is plenty of evidence that he is a good penman. Even utd Gib. put in the other H there ivould be no forgery, in the opinions of food lawyers. But he says ho did not. ['he full facts will be brought in May, nit there is no question but Gib. will >e cleared. : MISS BAFrOBD'B SUCCESS. Tor "Work In Sioux City—A Kocont Address In Chicago. A recent correspondent in the Unitarian reports Miss Safford's success in Sioux City: We have just closed a n-osperous year of church work under .he leadership of Rev. Mary Safford ind Rev. Elinor Gordon. Unity church s a little over six years old and, from almost nothing, has grown into a church society numberin >• about 300 members. In connection with the church there are a Unity club of over '6 members, a Junior Unity club, a Jnity circle, and two Helping Hand societies formed among the younger children. These clubs meet weekly. The ladies of the church carry on a sewing school in the poor district of the ity, and are active in other charitable vork. Miss Safford and Miss Gordon ire also doing missionary work in the neighboring towns. At Cherokee a a Unity church has just been organized ind 28 members signed the bond of union. The society conducts services 'egularly every Sunday, and Miss Saford preaches there every month. TRIBUTE TO WHITTIEU. The Pioneer Press clips from the Chicago Tribune a report of recent address by Miss Safford delivered in Chicago. One paragraph of her remarks s as follows: " Emerson worships the deal and loves to reach it. Whittier, lowever, above all others, is the poet of trust. His service for freedon has )een great, but his service for religion ms been greater. He does not give us .heological definitions, but spiritual ight. He does not strive to compre- lend God, but leaves us to trust ourselves without fear to God's infinite ove. We place our poets among the u reat religious teachers of the age. That light everywhere is breaking forth s greatly due to Mr. Whittier and other American poets. And that, in the jood time that will shortly be here, when the sectarian barriers are broken down, as men together strive to rear .he universal church, lofty as is the ove of God, then will the world recognize its debt to those who are now sing- ng their sweet songs of faith, hope and trust."
