If April showers bring Mny flowers what will April blizzards bringV The Columbian club will meet with Mrs. McCoy on Thursday evening of this week. County Attorney Raymond is now comfortably located In the office with Archie Hutchison, over Durdall's store. Geo. B. Bacon has leased his residence property here to Lawrence Horan, and will break up housekeeping for the present. Yesterday's report from H. A. Sessions said he was not improved, and his relatives here have serious apprehension as to his recovery. Letters remaining uncalled for in the Algona postofflce for the week ending April 22: J. M. Tilford, Miss Annie Rieder, Mr. Janson, C. W. Morton. Ambrose A. Call has a pasture notice in this issue. Those who are looking for good pasturage at reasonable rates, close to town, will find interest in reading it. S. B. Reed returned on Monday from El Paso, Texas, accompanied by the Misses Zahlten. Miss Emma Zahlten is still far from being well, but hopes for ultimate recovery. Local markets are not much change_d from last week's figures. Wheat is worth 46@50c; oats, 20@25c; corn, 30 @35c; barley, 25@35c; flax, $1; hogs, $5.60(0)6; cattle, $3.50@4. Algona experienced the novel sensation of a butter famine for two days last week. Good butter brings 27 cents in the local market, and there is not enough to supply the demand. The Whittemore Champion says that S. J. Hutchison and T. L. Little of Algona have purchased the meat market of Spill_es & Wagner, ' and will transfer their interests to Whittemore. It is reported that W. J. Crammond and family are about to return to Algona for permanent residence. They have been for some time living at Harlan, Iowa. All will welcome them back. Through the efforts of Wm. H. Ingham our public schools have become the possessor of a copy of Studor's work on ornithology. The work is standard in all respects, and a valuable addition to the schools' library. Mr. Ford of Rolling Prairie, Wis., is the new man who arrived last week to act as assistant to R. A. Palmer dur ing Agent Vesper's absence at the world's fair. He came early so as to get the run of the work. Dr. Morse, who was master of ceremonies, tells the newspaper man that Anton Jurgenson is the happy father of twins, which arrived last Saturday—a boy and a girl. He also says that this is one of the rare occurrences. The Baptist Young People's union will give a button social at M. C. Bailey's, Friday evening. Everyone invited. Ladies please bring thimbles and scissors. Proceeds to go toward the second payment on the new organ. Frank E. Sessions, here last week in attendance upon the funeral of his father, started Sunday night for Stoughton, Wis., a telegram having been received on Saturday stating that H. A, Sessions, his brother, was worse. The Wigwam has an announcement on the first page which will interest all who use farm machinery or implements of any kind. The Wigwam is one of the substantial institutions of the county, and its spring business is opening up in satisfactory shape. Geo. McCutchin was severely injured yesterday at the Milwaukee depot. He is brakeman on a freight train, and somehow got caught between a box car and a flat loaded with rails, and a rail struck him in the chest. Dr. McCoy, who attended him, says the injury is serious. The Republican was a little previous in its announcement that Jas. Chapin would go to Delevan, Minn., to take charge of John Paul's lumber yard. Mr, Chapin expects .to do a much better thing and stay in Algona. The yard at Delevan is about to be sold to other parties. The sale by L. C. Chandler of his restaurant to the man from Minnesota, reported two weeks ago, has fallen through, the man writing that he had bought elsewhere and is not coming. Our people will be pleased to know that Mr, Chandler will remain and continue the business. The removal of the sidewalk in front of the Cowles building on State street has necessarily left an opening which most pedestrians prefer to go around rather than over. Up to date only two have tumbled over the guard rail. In both instances there is said to have been considerable barking—chiefly of shins. The interior of Galbraith's store presents a novel appearance since undergoing the changes that have been made during the past week. An extra floor has been put in half way to the ceiling and nearly the full length of the room, and will be the means of storing a large amount of goods in addition to the regular ground floor space. The Odd Fellows of this district are perfecting arrangements for celebrating the anniversary of the establishment of the order. They meet this year at Bancroft, on the 9th of June, and the town expects to entertain the gather? Ing in spleaAid style. The anniversary proper fij jigs April 26, but since celebrations in this district have usually been held in rain storms, the date is this year made later in the hope of avoiding the rainy season. The towns included in this district are Algona, Emmetsburg, Estherrille, Plover, Weal Bend, Livermore, LuVerne, Bancroft and Wesley. The Jay Hodgman family, residents of Garner since leaving here, are record beaters, and no mistake. All this talk about the versatile 'Jay's lack of genius must come to an end now, for, according to late reports, a recent addition to the family is nothing short of a genuine son of Ham. Verily, there is ho accounting for tastes. J. R. Jones was at Akron, the storm- wrecked town in western Iowa, last week.' He says they got a terrible shaking up there, many houses being smashed to splinters and others moved bodily for a considerable distance. The big bridge was a total wreck. The damage to the town reached many thousands of dollars. The wonder is that no one was injured. Mrs. W. J. Lang has broken up housekeeping, and with her family has gone to Clear Luke for a short visit, after which she goes to Chicago to reside, where Mr. Lang has gone into business. Algona loses a good family by the change. THE UPPER DBS MOINES will keep them posted in their new home on the doings here. It is rather curious, but after all seems to be true_, that the fellow who always takes pains to go to the newspaper office and prevent, if possible, the appearance in print of anything that might affect him is the first to rush around to the same paper and give the details of some scandal about his neighbor. Some people are built after amighty queer model. At the annual meeting of the Algona Driving Park 'association, at F. M. Taylor s office last Saturday evening, B. F. Smith of Ramsay was elected president; A. D. Clarke, vice president; W. F. Carter, treasurer, and F. M. Taylor, secretary. Mr. Smith is an enthusiast in racing matters, and we look to see him do something toward giving the association a healthy start. The Burt Monitor says that Uncle Jimmy Price, an old soldier who has made this vicinity his home for over a quarter of a century, having removed here immediately after the war, has gone to the soldiers' home at Marshalltown. Mr. Easterly is the happy recipient of word from him stating- that he is well satisfied with his new home and that the institution is kept in a nice and tasty order. Sneak thieves raided the clothes line at the residence of J, R. Jones Monday night, securing several articles of wearing apparel, some table cloths, etc. Whoever did it had an eye to business, as they sorted out only the best and left the less valuable articles. J. R. says he has some potatoes in the cellar which the midnight prowlers can have also if they will come and got them. The freight house of the -Northwestern road is being lowered six inches, in order that the platform may conform, as to height, with the refrigerator and freight cars. The company will also extend the freight platform on the south, making it 32 feet longer. This has become necessary for the convenient handling of machinery and other bulky shipments. Our old school teacher, F. M. Shippey, has been heard from again, this time at Guthrie, Oklahoma, where he appears to have set stakes. He wrote to Supt. Reed for a copy of his certificate held while he was principal here. Presumably he is engaged or contemplates engaging in educational work, though his letter to Mr. Reed discloses nothing with reference to his plans or occupation. J. St. John is justly entitled to rank with the professional horse shoers of the land. He makes this line of "work his specialty, and in doing so finds it profitable to secure all the latest improved appliances. The last and perhaps most valuable is what is known as Hayden's patent guage for leveling horses' feet. One needs but to see it to know its value. The wonder is that somebody had not invented something of the kind before. One of the notable tranfers of town property during the past week was the sale by J. D. Shadle of his splendid residence property to M. F. Randall. It is one of the neatest and most modern places in the city,' and Mr. Randall is to be congratulated on securing a place that will make him such a comfortable and pleasant home. He gets possession about the 20th of next month, or as soon as Mr, Shadle can complete, for his own occupancy, the house he is building on the next lot east. Perry Burlingame's "Kossuth Beauty" apple tree, of which this paper has before made mention, is proving its staying qualities. It is a seedling, nineteen years old, and two years ago bore its first fruit—one lone apple. Last season the number was increased to 52, and now that they are shown to be a good winter apple, Mr. Burlingame feels justly proud of his tree. ' A sample of the fruit was left at this office on Monday, and we speak knowingly when we say it is all right. It is hardly a matter of surprise that A, E. Dougherty, who went to Kansas a few weeks since to engage in business for himself, has returned to Algona and will again take his place in the abstract office of Hay & Rice. They have been getting along without a man since he left, on the theory that he would be back before long, and his friends will be glad to know that he has reached this determination thus early. He is a good man, and deserves better luck thanone is likely to strike in "bleeding Kansas." • The funeral of Columbus Sessions occurred at his late home at 2 o'clock last Friday. Rev. Davidson conducted the exercises, which were very impressive, and were attended by a large number of friends of the deceased, who availed themselves of the last opportunity to pay tribute to his memory. The remains were deposited in Algona cemetery. Frank E. Sessions of Watertown, N. Y., and S, J. Green of Spencer were in Attendance. The former is the oldest son, and the latter a cousin of deceased. Tho world's fair railroad rate from Algoaa is, fixed at $18.50 for the round trip. | Late advices from the passenger association show that at its recent meeting l)f Chicago the roads failed to agree, and Vhe rates may be declared oft any ume. The Santa Fe road refusec to cojne in, asserting that the proposed arrangement did not give them a fait deal^'or the western traffic, and gave nott 3 of its withdrawal from the asso elation. This may result in a big cu 1 on 8(,me lines, but is not likely to «ffect this section. Permits to marry have been grantee to Michael Hayes and Nellie Flanigan, F. M. Lord and Lisetta L. Munch, Philips. Engelhwrdt and Lottie E. Bacon, and Carl Ostratidor and Addie E. Davidson. Prof. M. Stalker of the state agricultural college will lecture before the Social Union club at the Congregational church, Friday evening, on Hawaii. Prof. Stalker spent the greater part ol last winter in Hawaii, and made a careful study of the social condition, customs, school system, etc, of the inhabitants of that island. The professor is an entertaining speaker and everyone may feel assured of a profitable even- spent in attending this lecture. An admission fee of 25 cents willbe charged to cover expenses. Cards were received at this office last week announcing the marriage of Will F. Walker and Miss May Colburn, which event took place at Belvidere, 111., on Tuesday, the 18th. They will take up their abode there, and will be at home after Sept. 6. Both are well- known former residents of Algona. The event is one that has been looked for some time, and its consummation is the occasion for congratulations from their many friends in Algona. This paper joins in wishing them all the joys of connubial bliss. Thos. McGovern of Whittemore and Bro. Hi notion, are having it red-hot now. The Courier's remarks about the Whittemore postoffice seem to have aroused McGovern's ire, or Irish, or whetever it may be, and McGovern comes back at him with upwards of a column in the Champion, in which bad grammar and worse rhetoric are the predominating features. Let the merry war go on. It is entertaining if nothing else, and proves that when the democrats are on top there is as much division of sentiment as to who should fill the offices as ever existed in any other party. The marriage of Mr. Philip S. Engelhardt of Milwaukee and Mifs Lottie E. Bacon of this place was solemnized yesterday, at 11 o'clock, at the Episcopalian church, Rev. T. F. Bowen officiating. Only invited friends were present. Miss Bacon has been a resident of Algona for some three years, and by her large circle of friends she is highly esteemed for her many womanly graces. The groom is but little known here, but is said to possess those qualities necessary in a model husband. The couple went south yesterday. They will eventually reside in Milwaukee. Chas. Covell, the musical director of lenford's Uncle Tom's Cabin show, volunteered his services as advance man for a few days, pending the arrival of the gentleman who will assume this part of the work, and started north last week to bill some of the towns on the proposed route. He went by team, and his experiences between here and Bancroft he thinks would make a fair- sized book, with gilt edges and bound in leather. The depth of some of the mud holes he encountered is a matter of speculation only, as in his anxiety to p^et out he failed to take soundings. Eereafter he will confine his efforts to the violin and E flat cornet. Burt's little boom is on, and she has done much in the way of improvements n varisous ways this season. E. J. Slurtaugh bought and laid out a fine addition to the town, and the county records show that he has already sold nost of the lots, which seem to have 3een bought largely by actual settlers. As showing how prices have risen it is noted that a man named Kochtel nought a chunk of ground in Burt for i&50, and the next day sold half of it for ,vhat he paid for the whole. These things give our northern neighbor an unmistakable metropolitan air, and shows her to be one of the substantial towns of big Kossuth. The ladies of the W, C. T. U. and •eading room association will give a )luo ribbon entertainment on Tuesday evening, May 2, in Starr's hall. A short programme w_ill be given, after which the ladies will serve ice cream and cake. A special invitation is extended to all those who signed the jledge at the late temperance meetings, is well as everybody else. Please give ihe ladies a full house, as the proceeds are for the benefit of the reading room. There will also be a special meeting of W. C. T. U. on Thursday of this week, at 3 o'clock. It is desirous that every nember be present, as arrangements 'or the coming entertainment are to be completed. Bro, Hinchon's realism is bearing ! ruit, as is evidenced by this item in ;he Estherville Democrat: "It seems a Salvation Army saint has been board- ng at the house of one of his converts. He took the wife's part in a family row, which caused the husband to kick him out, which finally led to the separation of husband and wife." It is not well to get excited over small matters. Algo- rn is not half so bad as might be in- 'erred, and in this particular instance ;he husband and wife are living in ihe same house with as much in the way of connubial bliss as could be expected with a strong partition wall dividing. Meantime the Salvationist has secured another boarding place. Hard maple trees come high some- ilmes when not secured in a manner said to be proper and lawful, Peter Winkel owns a piece of land east of the mill dam upon which numerous hard naple trees o_f various sizes are growing. From time to time, as he visited ihe place, the discovery was made that ;hese trees were disappearing, root and branch. Divining the reason, he laid out several nights watching for the ghosts or goblins that were supposed to be exerting an undue influence jver his pet maples. His efforts were at last rewarded, and matters culminated yesterday morning in the arrest of Lester Wilson, charged with having appropriated to his own use several of the trees, and he was brought before B. H. Clarke, Esq., for examination. Be admitted having taken five trees, but protested that he did not know whose land they were on nor that he was doing anybody an injury by taking them. Justice Clarke viewed the case from a lenient standpoint and let him off with a fine of $5 and costs, amount* ing in all to about $10. ty will doubt- less prove a lesson to a misguided class of individuals who seem to have ho regard for the rights of others. WANTED—A girl to do general housework. Will pay good wages. Apply to W. E. Davidson, at the olc college building opposite G. A. R. hall. MAN KILLED AT WHITTEMOBE. Run Against by n Snow Plow, Chris. Koehn Lost Ills Life Last Frlday- Tho Engineer Arrested. Chris. Koehn, a railroad hand, was killed at Whittemore last Friday by being struck by the snow plow, which is said to have been running 35 miles an hour. The engineer, Thps. Comfort, was arrested, charged with man slaughter. When brought before Mayor Boyle he waived examination and was bound over to the grand jury in bonds of $2,000, which he gave find was released. The facts with regard to the accident are not obtainable at present, but will all be brought out when the grand jury meets. The en- gjneer says he did not see the man until the snow plow struck him.

LADIES' and Misses gossamers to close at 50 cents each. Geo. L. Galbraith & Co. OTOLE TOM'S CABIN. The OpouliiK Is Postponed on Account of 13ud Weather and Sickness of the Leading Lady. At the lust minute the management of Glenford's Uncle Tom's Cabin com- gany has decided, on account of the rainy weather that has begun, to postpone their opening here, which was advertised for Saturday of this week. Added to this is a telegram from their leading lady announcing that she is sick and unable to come, and that they must not depend upon her. This will prove a disappointment to the public, out not more so'than it is to the management. The opening here, however, will occur in a short time, doubtless within two weeks, duo notice of which will be given. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. A. H. Langdon ran over from Illinois ast Saturday for a short visit tit home. 3ert always finds plenty of friends in Algona. Mr. and Mrsl Dr. Sheetz and Mr. and Sirs. D. A. Haggard started Sunday night for Keokuk to attend the state encampment. August Bremer spent a day in St. Paul last week looking after some business interests and greeting his many riends there.

REMEMBER our sale of fancy ribbons will last only Friday and Saturday of ;his week. Geo. L. Galbraith & Co. Jaiiauschelc, May 0. The coming of Januschek to Algona, May 9, marks an era of legitimate drama in this place such as people here iav« not often seen. She has been in Minneapolis the past week, and the Journal thus speaks of her acting. "Mme. Januschek's impersonation of such roles as Lady Macbeth, Mary Stuart, Meg Merrilles, and Queen Elizibeth in her new play, "The Earl of Essex," have established her so firmly n the estimation of American audiences that she-is known from one end of the country to the other, as one of the really great artists whose brilliant ichievements emblazon one of the most interesting pages of dramatic history. Mme, Janauschek, being asked recently what constituted the necessary qualifications for success in Shakes- perean -roles, replied: "Above all things imagination, next to that mind and feeling, but without the first there ;s no possibility of anybody attaining distinction as a Shakesperean actor or actress." Algona prices are fixed at 50c, 75o, $1, and $1.25, and will be on sale Saturday morqing at 10 o'clock. Harried. April 16, 1893, at Arlington, Oregon, jy Rey, J, N.
