Brink are licensed to wed. Carpets and curtains is what the Grange store will show 1 this week. The Grange will serve a chicken-pie dinner Friday noon. All are invited. Hamilton's hardwood lumber business has a newannouncementthis week. Our spring items were mainly written yesterday. March is herself again this morning. Dr. Sayers has been all over the north part of tho state lately looking at diseased stock. J. H. Grover was down from Portland yesterday, and said seeding would begin there this week. The county fair directors meet next week Tuesday. Every member of the board should bo present. Joseph Mathers has been very sick since going_ to Elmore. He was not expected to live at one time. We hear it rumored that C. D. Creed will return to Algona soon. He does not like it at Washington. Carter's crockery and canned-goods sale is bringing a big trade. He will clean out his stock this month. Four or five Whittemorites came over Monday for a law suit, but the case was settled and all went home happy. The State bank is scattering a pamphlet on good roads. It is the best thing published on the road question, Galbraith's store is now headquarters for everything at cheap prices. Bead his advertisement in this issue. Over $3,000 of stock was sold at the Lund auction at Wesley last week. A great many attended and prices were good. Geo. E. Clarke is recovering slowly from his illness, and will be able to be about this week. He has had a serious time of it. The race question is being settled. Bro. Hinchon came down to the polls Monday arm in arm with Kossuth's only darkey. Agent Vesper and Agent Hedrick should live in tho same ward. And all things considered that ward should be the First. It is understood that the grand jury indicted Alderman and Horning, and that they will be tried at the coming term of court. If you want canned goods read Carter's figures this week. He is selling them cheaper than you can raise the fruit and can it. J. W. Bartlett is now permanently located at Dallas, Texas, and his address is 405 Bankers and Merchants Bank building. Wm. Ormiston was down Monday from Seneca. His health la improving, but he has not yet bought the blooded horses he is after. The sun appeared Sunday after three weeks of more or less retirement. It now looks as though we should have a very early spring. Jas. Taylor's removal sale is going on briskly. He will clean out his stock this month. The past few days have been spent in invoicing. Wm. Ward has bought the depot hotel at Garner and is now a full fledged landlord. He had a boarding house when he first went to Garner. 'Money seems to be getting plenty when tho banks advertise it at six per cent. Tho Kossuth County bank makes such announcement this week. Thirty-four German families are coming into the north end of the county soon in a body. John Winkel assured us that they are all democrats. The normal school closes a very successful term this week, and the spring term opens a week from Monday. The prospects indicate a good attendance. The farmers' institute programme begins tomorrow afternoon. Some excellent topics are up for discussion and an interesting meeting should result. A son of Thos. MoArthur was crowded by a horse in the stall last week, and his collar bone was broken. Dr. Pride was called out and fixed the young man up. We are informed that the lectures advertised to be given this week by Father Chtniquy have been postponed. There was a conflict of dates, and he could not come, Bev. Flanigan has been holding revival meetings for some time in the Methodist church, with good results. They continue this week. The church is crowded each evening. Letters are advertised for Henry C. Price, W. Williams, Mrs. Ellen Drew. J. M. Heaton, H. K. Hess, Mrs. Mabel Miller, Mrs, Augusta Lisane, Albaines Lenard, Mrs. Ferdinard Zpruish. Hobart is excited over the prospect of a Milwaukee branch to Fairmont. But as this is rumor merely it is not entitled to credit. One railroad rumor at a time is all the county can stand. Will. J. Taft was elected mayor of Humboldt Monday, and C. E. Cohoon mayor of Emmetsburg, T. L, Crose was elected alderman also at Eminets- burg. All are well known in Algona. The monthly report of the public schools published last week deserves more than passing notice. Therfe are 585 enrolled now as against 522 this month last year. The increase of 63 means a 1 rapid grpwth in the district. With this big attendance there have been 28 less cases of tardiness, the per cent, of attendance has been gfeater, an& the number neither tardy nor absent has been 184 more than a year ago. The management of the schools is ft great credit to Algona, and these comparative reports serve to show that it has improved from year to year. About $2,000 has already been subscribed toward the hew Baptist church by.the church members. The general public Will not be invited to erive till the church has been thoroughly canvassed. The school election for the independent district will be held next Monday, at the sheriff's office, polls open from 9 to 4 o'clock. W. H. Ingham and J. W, Robinson are the members whose terms expire. The Northwestern road is bringing in immigrants every day for the north end. Every train has from one to five cars of household goods for people getting off at the various stations in the county. After the hearing in the Bichardson twine case court adjourned till March 28, when the term will be resumed and the cases finished up. The jury in the twine case returned a verdict for Bich- ardson. The general agent for the Singer sewing machine, whose presence in Algona was noted some weeks ago, has secured rooms in the former Buell house, and will make Algona headquarters. A fine treat is in store in the lecture on William Tell which will be given by Eugene Schaffter next week Saturday evening. It will be before the newly organized social club, and the doors will be opened to everybody. The first teachers' examination held under Supt, Reed occurred ten days ago. Out of 80 who tried less than half passed. The examinations are pretty severe, and only those well prepared can profit any by attempting them. A union temperance meeting will be held at the Congregational church Sunday evening, various speakers taking part. The possible passage of the Gatch bill is the occasion. The meeting will protest against this measure. Wm. Peck has plans for a building in Burt that will be a credit to the town. It will be 28x40 and 16x28 on the ground, all two stories high. Mr. Peck intends to locate in Burt this spring, and is going to sell his fine farm in Fen ton. The plans for the Ferguson-Hoxie block as arranged by Mr. Conner combine the two buildings in one double front. Mr. Hoxie will extend his hall to make a stairway into Starr's hall over the postoffice. This building will be a fine improvement. The town election at Bancroft is reported to have been very exciting. It was young blood against old, and in the main the young prevailed. J. B. Johnson was elected mayor. We understand that a system of waterworks was one issue in the contest. Jas. Orr has been papering the office east of the Rutherford house for J. B. Winkel, and he will move his sewing machine business at once. He will also move his present office building on the same lot, fronting it west. This makes room for the Ferguson block. S. C. Spear has rented his store building to a gentleman from Illinois, who will put in a stock of goods. It is more than rumored that another wealthy visitor will buy on east State street and build a brick block this season. He is looking at lots with this end in view HOW; Frank Bestenlaner has gone to Burt ind taken possession of the Cady & Hallock store which John Goeders traded for last week. He will run the store and is an experienced merchant. Mr. oeders says he will put in a full general stock, and that means a good store For Burt. Will. Haggard is expected home from Milwaukee this week to take charge of the Bepublican's printing business. The former foreman, Milt. Eollabaugh, left town yesterday for his home, and will go back to college at Cornell. The cause of his departure is not known. The county convention next Friday promises to be the most harmonious yet field by the republicans of the county. It will send delegates to the state convention, who will assist in selecting lelegates to the national meeting at Minneapolis. The state convention comes next week Thursday. Jas. Taylor has a Syracuse, N. Y,, paper containing the report of a test of ;he H. K. Hess electric storage battery. The report says it worked all right, out it failed to mention that the owner if the Thorington had yet sold his interest or organized a company on a paying basis. The battery was tried •on a street car. The railroad question was hammered out of sight Friday evening by Messrs. Jones, Quarton, Doxsee, and Ingham. No vote was taken, but all agreed that the debate was Tory "exhaustive," Miss Rutherford -read an entertaining essay on social clubs, and Misa Ranks rendered a fine solo. The next meeting of the club will be next week Saturday. The Elmore Eye has uncovered its optic in the direction of the new railroad, and discovers something not yet rumored: " The stations will probably be located as follows: One at Thompson, another about ten miles west, and a third at the crossing. The latter will probably be Ledyard, us one of her sitizens remarked a day or two since that if the road would not come to Ledyard, Ledyard would go to the road," At the Palo Alto county farmers' institute which is to ho held at West Bend, March 19, Philip Dorweiler discusses " Shall Road Taxes be Paid in Labor or in Cash?" Henry Bell discusses "The Hand Scraper or Im- oved Road Machine. Which?" Paul Dorweiler discusses "Raising Barley, Does it Pay? How to Use It,"' and O, G. Wright talks on "Corn Fodder, How to Save It." These ara all good Kossuth county farmers and they Have good subjects to discuss. The Sheldon Mail says: "Frank Eisenhart has gone'to Bancroft, Kossuth county, to take charge of the John Paul Lumber Co.'s business there. Frank is a clever fellow and will no doubt do the work to the company's entire satisfaction. We commend him to the people of Bancroft as one worthy of their confidence and esteem,." The Mail is correct in all but one thing. Mr. Eisenhart is second man, Wes. Robison having charge of the yai"d. The Paul company have no better men than Wes. . The building this spring is beginning to be heard of in all directions. John Paul & Co. have sold lumber to S. I. Plumley for a house near Corwith, to O. P. Anderson for a house in the northwest part of town, to A. Lattimer for a house and barn on a lot he has bought out of the Lund land east of town, and to Hugh Herman for a house and barn north of Algona hear the home farm, besides the buildings already noted in Algona. Kossuth will see more lumber put up this year than ever before. Two old landmarks will soon be out of sight. The old town hall, built in tho spring of 1856, will be made a part of the Johnson warehouse, the roof be removed and it be btiilt two stories high. And tho old court house, built in 1866 by S. Reed, and Kossuth's return for the swamp land traded to the American Emigrant company, has already been moved to the rear of where the new building will stand. In a few months nothing more will be seen of either. They are two of the pioneer buildings of Algona. The new machine warehouse of A. M. & G. M. Johnson is not to be one of the least of Algeria's new adornments this spring. It will stand where Kossuth's first and historic court house now does, that relic of swamp land days and fame going to the rear as all old things do in this rushing age. The new building will be of iron, 00 feet front, and 60 feet deep, two stories high. The front will be in imitation of brick, and will bo very ornamental. Algona's first business began over where this and Peter Johnson's new buildings are. Tho town is beginning a second circle around the public square. Some weeks ago it was intimated by the Bancroft Register that O. A. Potter's hay hauling record had been beaten up in the north end. Now the owner of "Lazy Bill" wants the figures produced and as an evidence of good faith submits the Cresco record, four loads weighing 6,280, 5,240, 5,488 and 6,030. If anyone can beat that score Cresco will haul again. In any event Cresco wants it understood that she has a chip on her shoulder and can outhaul any township in the county. These loads were hauled by "Lazy Bill" and a mate lighter than he is. Let the owners of draft horses come to the front. Those who think that Dakota's great hard wheat regions beat Iowa should call and see the lust copy of tho Devil's Lake News, which Ambrose A. Call gets regularly in connection with his mail route business. It is only one of two papers in the town, but it has just even 20 columns of mortgage sale and Foreclosure notices in solid nonpareil. It is published in the very heart of the wheat regions and shows that all is not lovely where No. 1 wheat goes 30 bushels to the acre. Mr. Call says that Frank Grove has been in that section lately for him, and reports thousands of acres of wheat still in the shock, no threshing done, and no fall plowing, and the season is too short for spring plowing. The Courier became greatly disturbed last week for fear the republicans were not going to conduct their convention properly, but were going to put up a snap delegation to the congressional convention. Its mistake arose from confounding the congressional caucus held at the state convention next week to name two delegates from the Tenth district, with the convention to nominate a congressman not yet called. The delegates to be elected Friday go to the state convention. When congressional politics come in order a convention will be called in due season. With this explicit explanation we hope the Courier will have its confidence in republican management restored. We regret to have anything done by the i-epublicans which tho Courier cannot 'ully endorse. An Emmetsburg reporter to the State Begister makes the following statement of alleged facts: A flrmpur- portin * to have established quarters at Buffalo, New York, with a branch at Algona, Iowa, have been scouring some of the north central counties selling a right to manufacture a wire picket fence. The deal is to establish agencies in each township among the farmers and take their note for $100, representing that the note is not negotiable. An additional claim is made that they are not obliged to pay the note if tho profit does not exceed the face of the lote. It transpires, however, that the ictes are sold and the innocent farmer is notified that some bank has the note 'or payment. Word has been received that these same people have been doing Deleware and Jones counties. The Ledyard bank deal has taken a lew turn, and Ledyard is as prolific in banks now as any town in northern [owa. Last week the " State Bank of Ledyard" was organized with A. N. Drake of Radcliite as president and Mr. Wiemers as cashier, Mr. Wiemers being one of the firm which opened the Bank of Ledyard" against which the injunction was issued. As it is now there are three banks, the state bank being in active operation and the two banks of Ledyard being tied up more or less by the court proceedings. We understand that the Ledyard postoffice has mail for the " Bank of Ledyard" which is not delivered to either party, ind will not be till the courts decide, The new state bank has a paid up capital of $25,000j and is backed by some inouied men in and about Radcliffe. work. wanted to do general house- C.

It is much the same as » severe cold and requires precisely the game teeatment. Remain quietly at home and take Chamberlain's Cough Remedy as directed for a severe cold, aad a prompt and complete recovery is sure to follow. This remedy also couutwrcts any tendency of la grippe to result iu 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.

NEW CITY DABS CHOSEN, With Only an Occasional Skirmish Here and There, Monday's City Election Was Quiet. Good Men Are Chosen All Along the Line—Now Let Us Have Some City Water Service. THE NEW ALDERMEN. Firstward F. H. VESPER Second ward J. W. HINCHON Third ward JOHN MAGNUSSON Fourth ward J. F. NICOULIN Fourth ward (to flll vacancy) F. E. SMITH No excitement attended the city election Monday, although there was a little variety in some of the wards afforded by local contests. The first ward agreed to agree and P. H. Vesper ran against time, getting 40 voteeoutof 60 cast. In the second ward the republicans held a hastily called caucus and nominated M. B. Clmpin, but many thought J. W. Hinchon's services during his one term entitled him to tho glory of a second election and the tickets with his name seemed to get into the box more profusely thitn for his opponent, he being elected by a vote of 61 to 34. In the Third ward all hands united in a joint caucus at which John Magnusson was nominated. But like till such caucuses itdidn't bind anybody, and B. F. Hedrick's friends put his name up, and the contest was hot all day, a total vote of 105 being polled. Of' these Magnusson got 59 to 40 and is elected. John is a stone mnson and teamster and represents our Scandinavian citizens. In the "bloody Fourth" it looked as though for once peace would spread her wings. No caucus was held and by common consent it seemed J. F. Nicoulin was namnd to succeed himself, and F. E. Smith to flll H. A. Clock's unexpirod term. But by tho middle of the forenoon a new ticket was out with A. C. Scott in Smith's place, and the Fourth, feeling again at home, wont at it hammer and tongs. The outcome was the success of the Nicoulin and Smith ticket, Nicoulin having all the votes, 105, and Smith 57 to Scott's 54, counting all the votes cast. But eight of Scott's and one of Smith's did not designate the term they were voted for, and the result really was Smith 56 to Scott 48. The council as it now stands is: First ward, Wm. Cleary, F. H. Vesper; Second, A. W. Moffatt, J. W. Hinchon; Third, C. H. Blossom, John Magnusson; Fourth, J. F. Nicoulin, F. E. Smith. It is a good board of city fathers, and we understand has a fixed and unalterable determination to extend the water mains. The other city officers are Dr. Sheetz, mayor; S. S. Sessions, cleric; J. W. Sullivan, attorney; C. M. Doxsee, treasurer. MONEY to loan on farms for five years or over, at six per cent., at Kossuth County bank. Horses for Sale.
