When we got here roads were quite good, but about (time we got ready to go out into i country it commenced raining and the roads have been almost impassable but the Weather has been very comfort ftble, dinly freezing during one night.' • A very serious accident happened Mrs. D. H. Setchell Saturday. Whil Standing oh a step-ladder she slippec and fell and broke her arm. She i resting comfortably and Will recover in due time, but breaking bones is alway serious to people who are along in years. At the meeting of the Congregationa club to be held March 19, Eugem Schaffter of Eagle Grove will deliver a lecture on l? WilHam Tell." Mr Schaffter's lecture is a sketch of hi travels over Toll's country and will be very interesting. Further announce ment will be made. Willie Squires, BO far as heard from wears the belt for the first game of tht season. He is only 12 years old, but he went out Monday, and over the back o the famous hunting cow of his father shot two fine wild geese. That • cow holds her taste for sport and can sneak up on wild game better than any hunter in the county. Dr. Hathaway and his attorney, Geo. W. Argo, were Over from Sioux City yesterday to secure a postponement o the hearing in the libel case againsi the Republican on account of Geo. E. Clarke's illness, as he is retained foi the prosecution. They propose to try the case and make the Republican prove its charges. The Republican, last week, made a foolish mistake, which made John Gannon the possessor of a marriage license. It was Mr. Gannon's daughter, a well- Icnown and popular teacher of the county, and she was happily married to an estimable young man named A. J. Clay. They have many good vvishesfrom their friends. We learn unofficially that the Bu'rt farmers met last Saturday and decided to organize a co-operative grain buying company. Some 70 shares had been subscribed and a board of directors was jhosen four members of which are: Dr. Bourne, Wm. Knoll, Geo. Patterson, and M. J. Mann. We have not a full report. But the company is organized. Work will soon begin on a 22x60 foot, two stories high, building on the Rutherford lots east of the wigmam. It will 'urnish sample rooms for the Ruther- 'ord house, and as soon as it is done the interior of the hotel will be somewhat remodeled. Mr. Rutherford finds the addition needed to accommodate trade, md will add to the spring building Doom. Algona is '.' in it" this season. The firm of clothing merchants from Blue Earth, whose visit to Algona was noted by THE UPPER DBS MOINES some weeks ago, have made permanent arrangements to locate and have rent- id the building now occupied by J. C. ?rank for five years, beginning 1 Aug. 1 next. The firm name is Durdall & ulickson. They are pushers in business and will be a good addition to the town. The Indies of Algona beat the world. Their leap-year reception at the Thor- ngton house last evening was the finest social event since last leap year, whenever that was. Dancing, visiting, and slegant refreshments were the order of ihe evening, and we fear that Lent was ushered in with considerable hilarity it midnight. It was in every way an inqualified success, for which all praise to the ladies. C. L. Lund has been named for dele- fate to the national convention and Jas. Taylor as candidate for secretary of state, and still the Courier don't come out with a leader. What is matter? If ve are bound to have democratic delegates and democratic candidates Kossuth county men are the ones to choose rom. If the Courier don't help the >oom along we shall have to do that much democratic service ourselves. The result of Geo. E. Clarke's attack )f bleeding last week from his tooth- julling experience, and subsequent ex- >osure to cold, has been a severe at- .ack of inflammatory rheumatism. He was taken last Friday and is confined 10 his bed, where he 'will probably be compelled to remain this week. As he vas connected with nearly all the cases .6 be tried at this term of court, the vork had to be adjourned, and a later lession provided for. The Congregational social club holds ts second meeting in the church par- ors Friday evening. The programme s as follows: Vocal duet, Fannie Mof- attand Rubie Smith; debate, "Did owa Act Wisely in Adopting her Railway Legislation?" affirmative, C. M. )oxsee and Harvey Ingham; negative, . R. Jones and W. B, Quarton; vocal olo, LillieRanks; paper, AnnaRuther- ord; music, glee club. The public are Cordially invited to attend. The arrival of a fewdemocraticforces ike our new Mend J, J. Ryan will suggest the application of Franklirf's old iphorism to the republicans, "we must ill hang together or we shall all hang eparately." Our n$w citizen was a ower of democratic strength in Web- ter, and if we don't lose our guess is worth a hundred votes to the Philis- ines in Kossuth. But he is a genial man and a rustler in business and we velcome him to Algona "allee sainee." Eight directors of the agricultu- •al society were present for the annual meeting, but it was decided that more hould come in to arrange for the fair his year, and an adjournment was aken till two weeks, March 15, and all members of the board will be notified jy letter. The affairs of the society ire flourishing and a big meeting hould be held as important questions /ill come up for settlement. Let every director make an effort to attend, A rather romantic marriage was cel- brated at Geo. E. Clarke's office yes- lerday afternoon, Jennie Chambers and ilichard Halley being made one by Squire Taylor. The peculiar feature vas that Jennie had just secured a di- orce from her liege lord about half an lour previous. Her second marriage o soon on the heels of the first serves 0 show that the bride has confidence 1 the benefits of marriage not to be haken by one shipwreck on the rnatri-> monial sea. One of the pleasantest entertainments f the season was that given by the oung people at the Congregational hurch Friday.-evening. It consisted of nusio, and some handsomely arranged ableaux representing well-known class- cal groups. Everything in the cos- uraes and grouping was especially fine, nd all that was wanted for perfect suo- ess was the customary calcium lights. 4iss J^andall's fine solo was encored,' and Miss Edith Clarke's recitation oi "Mother and Poet" received hearty commendation. It was a difficult selection and was relidered with fine appre ciation of the spirit of the piece. The competition between the deadly car stove and the deadly hay press is gradually resulting in favor of the latter. The hay press is maiming more people now than the car stove ourns The past week David Baker of Cresco Was caught with both feet in the press and one leg was broken above the ankel. He was jumping on a bunch o hay when his feet slipped through and the press was further around than he thought. Fortunately only one leg was broken, the other being badly bruised. Dr. McCoy is fixing him up and he will escape without losing eithei foot. The first political event of the season is the election of city fathers next Monday. J. G. Smith, J. W. Hinchon, A. C. Johns, J. F. Nicoulin, and H. A. Clock all leave vacancies to be filled. The mayor and other officers are electee for two years and therefore do not come up this spring. We have heard no discussion as to candidates but presume the true American willingness to hold office will display itself before Monday. The retiring members have all been good officials, not excepting our democratic contemporary, and may be reelected, but in Mr. Clock's case at least a now man must be chosen, as he has left the city. The grand army has never celebrated Washington's birthday more successfully than it did last Wednesday evening. The tables were filled for the bean supper and the exercises were listened to by a large audience. Rev. Dorward discussed "Washington" in a very able paper, and Mrs. Ingham read a letter written by her brother from the battlefield of Chancellorsville, Mrs, Stacy read a very interesting sketch of some of the boys who went from Kossuth to the war, and Dr. Sheetz paid an eloquent tribute to "Comradship." Everybody enjoyed the evening, and will look forward to future meetings with renewed interest. The Estherville Republican las,t week said positivley that the new roaip across Kossuth is being built by the Burlington company. The Cedar Rapids Republican showed this to President Ives of that company and he 3aid: "The local company up there has done some skirmishing in the way of running lines over the country named. It has even gone so far as to bake contracts on the right of way, but the B., C. R. & N. does not appear in any of the work done. The members of that company are anxious to put a road through and are determined that it shall not fail, but the name of out- road does not appear in any of their transactions." Notices of school election for the independent district are out. The date is March 14, a week from next Monday, and directors are to be chosen to succeed W. H. Ingham and J. W. Robinson. The polls will be open at the sheriff's office from 9 a. m. to 4 p. m. The statement of finances for the year past shows that the bonds forthe school iiouse are now down to $10,000. The eHtimated expenses for next year are >5,000 for teachers' fund, $1,800 for con- ;ingent fund, and $2,600 on bonds and interest. Algona's schools are a mat- ;er of just pride and concern to the dis- irict, and every voter should attend to ;he election and assist in doing whatever will best insure the future pros- Derity and success of the work. Mrs. Jane Lamb writes from Storm Lake of the death of her mother, Mrs. Ai-ethusa Chapman, well known to Kossuth people. She says: "Last October [ brought my mother home with me ! rom Swaledale, a helpless invalid. She md been sick a year then and never eft the house after coming here until she was taken out in her coffin. She died Feb. 17, 1892. She was born Sept. 5, 1816. Was married to Daniel Chapman in 1835. Her maiden name was Arethusa Archibald. She moved to Sossuth in 1869, where she resided un;il four years ago, when she, with her msband and son George, settled in Swaledale, Cerro Gordo county, Iowa, vhere two years ago her husband died. iTer remains were sent back to Swale- dale for interment beside him. They ived together 55 years." Mrs. Lamb says she is broken down with the care and anxiety. Many friends here will extend sympathy. At Geo. E. Marble's, liurt.

Reed, proprietor of the Hotel Jellone, Omaha, one of tbe finest new and nodern hotels in the west, says of Chamerlain's Cough Remedy: " We have used ; in onr family for years with the most sat- sfaotory results, especially for our child- en, for colds and croup, it can be depend- d upon: besides it is pleasant to take and sems to be free from chloroform and the Uy substances put into many cough jnix- uves."

BEVOtYERS WERE Alderman and Horning Round Over for Resisting an Offlcer-No Liquor Found, Quite a sensation has arisen out of raid last Friday on- the restaurant o Joseph Alderman with the expectatiot of finding intoxicating liquors. Thf results in the way of liquors did no amount to much, but the upshot of the whole affair was the binding of Alder man over for resisting an officer, and o Lee Horning for drawing a revolver on an officer. Two search warrants hac been issued by Justice Thompson. One was for Hack man's and one for Alder man's. Olof Johnson was sworn in ns special assistant to Constable Tellier and together they searched the Hack man restaurant without finding any thing at all suspicious. Then they went to Alderman's. There are t'wo stories of what happened. According to the officers they started to read theii warrant for search, and Alderman tolc them to go ahead and search. But when Tellier went behind the counter Alderman became excited and. grabber him, using profane language and trying to get to the money" drawer where there was a revolver. Johnson seeing this drew his revolver on Alderman whereupon Lee Horning, sitting near, drew a revolver on Johnson and ordered him to drop his weapon. Alderman story is that when the officers came in he did not know what the paper was they started to read, or that they were officers. When Tellier started behind his counter he asked him what in h he was doing and wanted to see his warrant. But Tellier went on with the search and as he approached the money drawer Alderman went up to shut it. The next thing he knew Johnson's revolver was on him. t As soon as the revolvers were put up* Tellier got warrants and .both Alderman and Horning were arrested, and then the searcli continued, the only result being the seizure of some cases of tonic of some kind which some think con tains alcohol and some claim it is like pop and other harmless drinks. At the hearing Alderman was bound over in bonds of $200 to meet the grand jury for resisting the search officers, and Horning in bonds of $100 for drawing a weapon on an officer. J. W. Sullivan appeared for both defendants and the county attorney for the prosecution. No evidence was brought out at the preliminary hearing. If the grand jury indicts, the official story will be known. Never Yet Has It Mnde a Failure. No healthy person need four any daugor- pus consequences from an attack of the grip if properly treated. It is much the same as a severe cold and requires precisely the same teeatment. Remain quietly at home and take Chamberlain's Cough Remedy as directed for a severe cold, and a prompt and complete recovery ia sure to follow. This remedy also counterrcts any tendency of la grippe to result in pneumonia. Among the many thousands who have used it during the epidemics of the past two years we have yet to learn of a single case that has not recovered or that has resulted in pneumonia. Sold in 25 and 50 cent bottles at Dingley's.

Doxsee was called to Rolfe Saturday by a telegram announcing the death of his brother's little boy. He returned Monday. H. C. Parsons spent Sunday in Eagle Grove a week ago, visiting his daughter there. His son-in-law, who was formerly agent at Irvington, is now in the railway offices at the Grove.

He did not like their idea either of refusing to let darkies ride with white people, and went and sat in the darkey car. Some of the whites remonstrated and he told them that he always thought a white man was as good as a negro if he behaved himself. TO DISOTTSS THE FAEM.
