He was 55 years of age, and died Feb. 16. He was Mrs. Conner's only brother. Horace Hoxie was taken dangerously sick last week with a severe fever. He is now convalescing, and will get well. Mrs. Hoxie was in Knoxville visiting her daughter, but returned at once. J. A. Falwey was brought before ,'Squire Taylor last week on the charge of disposing of mortgaged property, Cattle and horses. He was bound over in $200 bonds to meet the grand jury next week. - It is rumored that the finest lot of fat cattle to leave Kossuth county Will be shipped from Burt soon.

He will hustle up the business in good style, and when i comes to attending to it our frienc Quarton will be found promptly on hand. | Court sets next Monday, Judge Carr presiding. The docket contains several interesting cases, among them the Burl bigamy case. We understand that the cribbing stallion case will not come on a-t this term as Mr. Dingley is in California. * We furnish this week two interesting letters, one written by Phil. C. Hanna tp • his brothers, picturing his new Ijome, and a graphic description of IVIammoth Cave, by C. M. Doxsee. Two }ut-of-the-way spots on the earth are thus brought home to. our readers in an Entertaining way, ',*, We are pleased to notice that the ^rderly course of affairs at the county jlerk's office has been resumed in the patter of marriage licenses.

Davidson of Hull, and Capt. A. L. Burnell of Hull were present. We overlooked last week the wedding cards received from Win. G. Clarke, who has deserted the batchelor ranks and united tot life with a very estimable young lady of Sioux Falls. Their home is now at Lincoln, whore Mr. Clarke is attorney for the street railway company. Many old friends in Algona join in congratulations to the newly- wedded couple. E. B. Eddy will give a lecture Friday evening, March 4, at the church at Buffalo Fork. Subject: Mountain Life in the Sixties. The lecture will be an account of his personal experience, facts and not fiction. Admission, 15 cents; children, 10 cents. The proceeds to be applied toward a fund for the purchase of a church bell. Lecture to commence at 7:30 p. m. A telegram from Emmetsburg to the State Register disposes of the rumor published elsewhere about Judge Carr's candidacy for congress: "The special from here to Saturday's Leader is decidedly off. Judge Carr has not been a candidate for congressional honors and will not be in the field; It is not at all probable that Mr. Dolliver will have any opposition.hero." Geo. E. Clarke had a serious time Saturday night as the result of having a tooth pulled. A small artery was broken in the operation and for two hours the doctors labored to stop the flow of blood. This was done after a serious loss, which has left Mr. Clarke somewhat weakened. This experience is^xcoptional, but shows that there are still unexplored terrors connected with tooth pulling. Wm. Ditz, who has been on the J. B. Jones farm for three years, has traded for Gus., Steinburg's restaurant at Bancroft and goes up there this week. He is a pleasant and successful business man and will bo well liked in his new home. Steinburg will spend 4 the summer in this section, but goes into business in the south part of the state, we learn, this fall. And now the Estherville Vindicator says that a corps of railroad surveyors is running a line from Manly Junction in Worth county to Forest City, to be extended through Kossuth. As soon as the road is an assured fact parties are ready to begin the erection of several store buildings at Armstrong Grove. The prospect of a railroad seems good, but there is an indefinite quality to the railway news. But it is evident that there is to be a town at Armstrong. The Algona Knights of Pythias invited in the Bancroft and Wesley lodges Friday evening, gave them a sample OtffittttL iKLAGUAtRA, He Tells in a Pleasing Way What He Thinks of a Country where Overcoats Are No Good.

Hollo way, R. M. Richmond, I. S. Bruer, Geo. W. Smith and W. E. Jordan. The visitors from Wesley were H. C. Hollenbeck, F. Heal, F. Hume, G. B. Hall, F. J. Kernan, F! Cory, Geo. Howard, C. Potter, Geo. Frink, F. Amesbury and R. Hill. The lodge room was crowded, and besides the entertainment our visitors put the Algona lodge under obligations, as their coming was fruitful in the way of back dues paid up. Come often. We had the pleasure of spending Sunday at Eagle Grove with EugeneSchaff- ter, whose letters of foreign travel were published in THE UPPER DES MOINES some months ago. The Grove is one of the booming cities of northern Iowa, and has put up some very handsome brick blocks the past year and will put up more this season. J. C. Heckart and his family are enjoying life there, and Ed. Lyons has built a handsome home and is permanently located. Mrs. Rev. Glasgow, formerly Miss Willey, has been in poor health for some time, which her many friends here will regret to learn. One of the handsomest homes in the city belongs to Mr. and Mrs. Homer Miller, Mrs. Miller being well known to many Algonians as Miss Brown of Humboldt. Electric lights go in this spring, which with flowing wells at every house, and plenty of rail- CONSULATE OF THE UNITED STATES FOB LAGUAYRA and the Dependencies Thereof, Jan. 1, 1892.—My DealBrothers: I send my best wishes for the new born year '92, but in such a mild climate as this I can scarcely believe that it is New Year's day. The thermometer in the balcony of the consulate told 76 degrees at sunrise and 80 degrees at noon. I take record of the temperature five times each day and the average at this time of the year, here at the seaport, is about 76.5 degrees (70* degrees.) Up in the mountain at Caracas, six miles away, the average winter temperature is about 63 to 05 degrees, and for the year about 71 degrees. I think LaGuayra has as much heat in a year as any seaport on earth. I have never known my thermometer to sink below 75 degrees night or day, and only once have I seen it below 76 degrees. It generally stands at 76 degrees at sunrise and about 80 at noon this time of the year, for bear in mind it is now winter and we are having our cold weather. The average temperature at LaGuayra during the past year was about 85.10, somewhat higher than the average of northern Eowa, but you had much hotter weather for a few days last summer than we had at this port. The climate is too hot at LaGuayra in the summer to suit the tastes of the average American, and but few of our people from the states would select this for a summer resort. If they do they must seek the cool side of a shade tree, take sleep in the middle of the day, and not expect to go out without protection from the sun, therefore I shall not boast of the hot weather season here nor shall I try to make you think the summer heat at this port would be in harmony with the tastes of people from Iowa. But one season I can with a very clear conscience boast road men, insure a continuance of lively times. For Rent-For SaJe. I have from 75 to 140 acres of good plow land to rent. Will have a 4-room house completed by April 1. Prefer to furnish 10 cows and 10 sows, and rent for shares, » I have two young horses, coming 4 and 5 years old, for sale reasonably. 48 T. H. CONNER, Algona, la. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. Dr. Peters returned last week from a trip to his-old home in Elkader. of, namely, winter. You may talk of Italy, of southern Europe, of South Sea Islands, and the West Indies, but for mild unchangable temperature, refreshing mountain and ocean air, sweet, pure water to drink, warm sea and river water to bathe in, most lovely moonlight nights, and a climate which never knew a chill, Macuto in winter surpasses all the earth. I know of no more lovely spot for our American health seekers, no more desirable place for tourists, for gentleman and ladies of wealth who are in the habit of wintering in the south, for children and old people who want to escape even chilly weather such as we find in winter in all the southern states, for persons who have been disappointed in love and are seeking some quiet lonely spot where they may recuperate, rally from their wrecked condition and apply some sweet healing balm, for young people who are love sick, for newly married folks who want to go where they can see mountains, hear the unceasing roar of old ocean until they grow romantic and quote all the machine love poems ever heard of, or for rich old maids, who have long dreamed of some fail- place where they would meet their lover, where they would renew their "the lives of great men live after them" we shall see the good fruits of the earnest labors of these two good and great men remaining and growing long after the men who planted the tree have passed away. I had the honor of some personal acquaintance with Mr. H. L. Boulton and I found him, as did everyone who knew him, to bo not only a great commercial man full of enterprise and push, but with a great heart full of kindness and friendly interest toward mankind, and ever ready to assist any good cause and aid those who were needy. For many years their ship line consisted of several sailing Vessels, running between here and the states. Under their careful supervision the ttwje increased to such an extent that steamships of largo size were needed and they have kept adding thereto and improving until the line has six fine ocean steamships. These ships have every modern improvement such as electric lights, electric call bells, etc. They come under the late subsidy bill and carry the mail for the United States government. I take considerable pride in the fact that the public in general pronounce "the American line" the cleanest and the best kept line of steam ships that enter the port of LaGuayra. Our people in the north who want to spend a few of the winter months in a sunny clime can not do better than come to Macuto, and you will find as good and safe a line of ships as plows the ooean to bring you here. Write to Boulton, Bliss & Dallott, 71 Wall street, Now York, they will gladly show you the way to reach Venezuela, the country which has as fine a winter climate as ever Italy dreamed of. This is the time of the year when the coffee crop begins to be shipped. Coffee is king in this country and there is no better coffee raised on earth than that raised'in Venezuela. On the 12th day of December the American flag floated at half mast over the United States consulate, it being the anniversary of father's death. The flags of other leading nations out of respect to the father of the American consul were placed in the same position, and I truly believe that flags never floated half mast in remembrance of a bettor man, than when on Dec. 12, we lowered them in sad remembrance of the death of George W. Hanna. I quite agree with the captain of an American FARMERS' INSTITUTE PROGRAMME Subjects to bo Discussed at the Meet- Ing March lo-i.i— Meetlutr of the Agricultural Society Directors. The committee appointed to prepare the programme for the farmers' institute, to be held at thfe.*ourt house on Thursday and Friday, March 10-11, have handed in the following subjects and appointed the speakers to discuss them, with the request that anyone part notify who will be unable to take Secretary Sessions at once.

The institute will open Thursday afternoon and continue till Friday evening, and the success that has attended these meetings in the past promises a pleasant and profitable session. MEETING OF DIRECTORS. The regular annual meeting of the directors of the Kossuth County Agricultural society will bo held Tuesday, March 1, at the office of S. S. Sessions. Arrangements will be made for the coming county fair, and the presence of all the directors is especially desired. C. L. LUND, President. S. S. SESSIONS, Secretary. Taylor's A Coming Entertainment. The following programme will be rendered at the Congregational church Friday evening: Removal Sale, L. J. Rice and daughter spent Sunday with friends at Renwick. C. C. Nourse, Jr., was in Algona Monday on legal business, coming from Des Moines. J. W. Hinchon took one of his boys to Des Moines last week to see the legislature. J. B. Winkel and A, Hough went to Chicago Saturday with four cars of stock. Mr. Winkel had private business to attend to. Mr, and Mrs. J. O. Reaver came up rom Knoxville Monday on account of Mr. Hoxie's illness. This is Mr. Reaver's first visit since moving. The visitors from Algona to Des Moines last week met Earl Tennant, who is taking a business course in the Highland Park school. He likes Des Moines. W. B, Quarton was in Des Moines last week looking up his cases in the state ibrary. He has several important questions for this term including the Republican's libel suit. We learn that J. W. Bar tie tt has removed from Kansas City, and is to locate at or near Waco.Texas, and open a branch of the New England loan company. He has a fine opening. Ambrose A. Call is back from his Louisiana trip. He found the towns rather quiet, but in the rice growing region the settlement is active. Many northerners are locating in that section. Thos. F. Cooke started yesterday on a pleasant trip.. He goes to New Or- eans, then across to St. Augustine, and rom there to New York returning by Washington and other cities. He will be gone some four weeks. youth and again be happy, for all classes of people who need rest for a winter in some warm climate, I send them welcome, for I have found the place they seek, namely, the little seaside town Macuto, which is a suburb of La- Guayra, and connected by steam street car line. This resort lies at the foot of a great mountain, which lifts its head something like 9,000 feet, and which ever presents a most beautiful picture. Beside several boarding houses and smaller hotels, Macuto possesses what is supposed to be the best hotel in Venezuela, the rates at which are from $2 to $3 per day. Special rates can always be made by parties or by persons who want board by the week or month. There are cottages for rent which families can obtain for the winter and keep house. The city of LaGuayra needs a good first class hotel, kept on the American and European plan, and would be a very profitable business for some first class American hotel man. The trade between Venezuela and the United States is rapidly increasing and I think the time will shortly come when the states will buy all that Venezuela has to sell, and will sell to Venezuela nearly all that she has to buy away from home, The owners of the American line of ships known as the Red D, line running regularly between New York and Venezuela and carrying the U. S. mail, deserve almost the entire credit for .this now well established and rapidly increasing trade between these two republics. The Red D. line was established many years ago by the Hon. Henry L. Boulton of Venezuela and his brother of New York. The Mr. Boulton of New York died there this last summer, and Mr. H, L. Boulton died at Caracas on the 26tU of November last. They had lived honoiv able and useful lives; were both men whose influence for good was fel$ during their life-time, an d men ' gonT ship, who, looking at a life size picture of father which hung in the consulate, asked: "Who is that man? He looks as though he would have made a. blamed sight better president than that man yonder" pointing to the picture of a certain ex-president. I am yours heartily, PHILIP C. H. Great Day for the Baptists. To the Editor: Last Sunday morning the Baptist people voted to build a new house of worship on the southeast corner of their lots, not to exceed in expense $5,000, providing $3,500 can be subscribed before beginning. We hope to raise this by June 1, 1892, and begin work. We hope the church and pub-' lie generally will be ready to respond liberally as we call upon them. As the result of the recent revival efforts seven have been received for baptism, and some twelve have united recently by letter and experience. The church are enthusiastic in their general work. They are a noble band of disciples, and their future looks very hopeful. Rev. R. Carroll was a great blessing to us in helping to lead souls to a final committal. W. H. DORWARD. Geo. E.

In other ways the republican party can go still nearer the people. There are several things I would like to see it enter upon. First; I would like to see it declare for one term in the presidency, a term of six years. This amendment could be adopted to take effect in 1900, or 1904. so that it could not be defeated as every movement of this kind has been heretofore from being considered a reflection upon an existing president. I would like also to see United Muslin Underwear, Gowns, Skirts, and Corset Gov'rs goods, too. 35 GEO. E. MARBLE, Burt, Iowa.

S Stough's, COME in and see the bargains we are offering in shawls. Geo. £ Gajbraith IF you evei> you States senators elected directly by the people. This would cure much of the enervation which has loag been visible in the senate. Beyond 'this I would take the postoffice out of national politics and put it in neighborhood politics. I cannot share in the opinion of republican and democratic reformers who would select at Washington, by some devices of a commission nearly all the postmasters for the 70,000 postal communities of this nation. For I would not take away, and in my judgment the American people will never allow to be taken away, from each community the right to a voice in the selection of its own postmaster. There is no reason why every postmaster should not be elected by the people whom they serve. The postoffices have been largely the element of discord in national politics. They lead very often to party division and party weakness. They have killed off more good congressmen and more good senators than all other causes combined. There are no ills in this government which cannot be cured by carrying them directly to the decision and the wisdom of the plain people. SEASONABLE^ ADVICE. A Favorite for the Winter Months-Do You Wonder What It Ig? F. W. Dingley, druggist, takes especial pleasure in supplying his customers with the best medicines obtainable. Among the many excellent preparations on his shelves may be mentioned Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, a favorite during the winter months on account of its great success in the cure of colds.
