Ambrose A. Call's advertisement for rock means undoubtedly that his new building will soon be under way. Miss Florence Curtis has located in Algona and will paint portraits in oil, or do crayon work. Her card is in this issue. Bargains will be open at Carter's for a few days yet, before he moves. He is clearing out his goods at lower prices than ever. The Bancroft Register says Geo. R. Woodworth is not going to Armstrong, but will take charge of the Bancroft opera house. Stough's sale of harness at cut rates continues. Farmers are coming from all parts of the county, as they save money by doing it. Perry Burlingame informs us that Mrs. Nathan Gates, an old-time resident of Irvington, died recently at her son's home in Washington. No one can get properly started this spring without giving John Goeders' store a visit and seeing his goods. Read his announcement this week. Merrit Turner was down from Bancroft yesterday proving up on a timber claim, and said a good word for the boom in the northern metropolis. of ast. He was quite a character for nany years hereabouts, and but for excessive drinking might have lived to a learty old age. The regular meeting of the social club will be held at the Congregational jhurch Friday evening. Besides other Matures of the programme, J- W. Hinchon will read a paper on socialism, and a general discussion of this question will follow. All are invited. Nick Winkel was up from Livermore yesterday visiting his brothers. Gov. Boies let him out from the $300 fine that was assessed against him for selling cider, and in Nick's case elder was all he was selling. For that he was convicted and fined this heavy amount, Our crowded advertising columns began to cut in on the usual amount of reading matter, and we have . consequently enlarged for this week. THE UPPER DES MOINES aims to not cheat its readers by scanty news columns, and this week is to considerable expense to give more than usual. Another brick block is among the probabilities this spring. Geo. H. Stokes, an Illinois man who owns a big farm south of Whittemore, has a trade under way for the J. B. Jones corner west of the Wigwam, and contemplates a two-front brick building. The matter will be decided soon. The Register's Washington correspondent noted in last Friday's paper that "Captain Cooke of Algona, apopu- lar officer of the Iowa National guard, is in the city looking up matters of interest to the militia of the state, and appeared before the house committee on militia today in that interest." Letters are advertised for J. T. Smith, R. Smith, D. M. Palmer, Edy Smith, Lloyd D. Pocock, Miss Ainbros- ene Ncilson, Mrs. John McClaine, J. H. McLain, L. J. Lee, N. W. Johnson, Miss Mui-y Hoinan, Dr. Jos. Fatheringham, Dan. Christian, Miss Jennie Arp, Auguste Jeaumongin. We give this week the full text of the new Australian ballot law which has been adopted in Iowa. It goes into effect July 4, and all votes this fall will be cast in accordance with its provisions. It will repay careful perusal by all, and especially by those who will have the duty of providing voting places, tickets, etc. The first step towards water works extension has been taken. The council Saturday evening ordered the committee to buy three car loads of four- inch mains. As soon as they arrive some method will be devised for deciding where to put them, and on what conditions water will be furnished. out that the removal was on account of Mr. Ericksen's assistance in tho raid on Alderman's restaurant, but Mr. Amsden says that the change had been in contemplation long before, and that this had nothing to do with it. Mr. Erieksen goes to a yard in a strongly Scandinavian settlement. In connection with the speculations on Johnstone's mind reading, an article in the last Popular Science Monthly,, handed us by Rev. Davidson, will be of interest. It describes a machine for testing involuntary movements, and the results show that a man's hand placed on the machine will involuntarily trace a lino in any direction that his mind turns. In reading ordinary lines from a book the hand will trace a line from left to right and return. This shows how the muscles guide the " mind reader," who has only to keep himself delicately sensitive to the unconscious movements of his guide, and be led to any spot or individual that the guide is thinking of. The Chicago Herald had a good cut of Jas. Taylor in its Sunday issue and a lengthy sketch of his business and political career, very complimentary to him. The occasion was a write up of the state central committee of which he is a member, but there is more to it than that, as ho is being seriously talked of as a candidate for secretary of state this fall. The democrats could MAY PROYE 1 TEST CASE, An Action Brought to Close the Algo- gona Tonsofial Emporiums on the Sabbath Day. Chris. Heise the Defendant—The Hearing Set for Friday—May Go to the Supreme Court. So be it, not do bettor than to take him. long as a democratic ticket has to put up, we favor Kossuth men for *u, and we hope to see the brethren make an aggressive flght for recognition. In this connection also it should be noted that C. L. Lund has boon suggested as a'dclegato to tho national convention. Why don't the Courier start a boom for its local party supporters? Letters wore written Saturday by citizens in Algona to urge the passage of a bill in the house, which Senator Punk got through the senate, and which is of great interest to land owners in Kossuth. It provides that where anyone puts a cloud on kind titles, and refuses on request to give a quit-claim deed, and the land owner is compelled to bring suit to quiet title, tho whole expense of the suit including attorney's fee shall be taxed to the defendant. Geo. E. Clarke was instrumental in having the bill introduced and intended to appear before the committees but for his sickness.

Our mayor is setting a good example of spring cleaning. The Young Ladies' Foreign Missionary society will meet with Mrs. W. A. Black on Saturday, April 2, at 3 o'clock. A full attendance of members is desired, R. M. Richmond's new state savings bank is under headway at Bancroft. It is organized under state law and has some of Bancroft's heavy business men aB stockholders. » Rev. De Forest of Emmetsburg preached Sunday at the Episcopalian church, and has been lecturing evenings this week, which he will continue until Saturday evening. T. H. Wadsworth's little girl died yesterday morning, Mrs. Wadsworth's youngest sister is here from Minneapolis assisting her. The sympathy of all is extended to the family. The papers announce that Venezuela, where Phil. C. Hanna is, is having a revolution. We should like to see Phil, waving the stars and stripes in the midst of a good, healthy revolution. The public schools are enjoying their spring vacation. All the teachers remain in Algonabut Miss Whitney who is in Bancroft, and Miss Chesley who is in Ledyard. The vacation lasts a sveek. There will be a social on Friday evening of this week at the home of Mrs. Frank Nicoulin for the benefit of the reading room. Refreshments will be served. Everybody is cordially invited. The offer of silver cup sweepstakes at he coming county fair leads the Ban- roft Register to suggest that it will wager that Ben. Smith will be after he cup on hogs. That is a pretty safe >et to make. Dr Morse is building a sizeable addition to the house he bought not long ago, has also purchased the Dr. Straw medical library, and secured a new lorse. He is doing his share towards spring improvements. One of the accidents of the big wind was the upsetting of the windmill at the Northwestern water-tank on tho rivei south of town. We understand that the company will now pump by steam and not put up another mill. We notice by the daily papers tha Postmaster Kendall has been removed at Ledyard, and Mr. Wright has been appointed. We learn also that the new man is well liked in the north end o the county, and will no doubt give excellent satisfaction to his patrons. Word comes that the 'cigar maker Leske, better known in Algona as BJS- mavk, died at Milwaukee Saturday The delegates to the democratic state convention in Council Blurt's seem likely to have a fine ride of it. Chairman Taylor is arranging to have a sleeping car come to Algona and run straight through, leaving here at 6 o clock p. m., and arriving at 7 o'clock a. m. The delegates from Palo Alto, Hancock, and probably other counties will join those from Kossuth. Edwin Canfield, who stood next to Bert Barr at the Fort Dodge examination for West Point last summer, has passed the examinations and has been notified that he will be admitted at the school June, 15. He lives at Fort Dodge and was tied with Mart. Weaver in the examination, but both places couldn't well come to Algona. John G. Smith was selected by Speaker Mitchell as member of the sifting committee. It is the business of this committee at the close of the session to pick out the important bills from the mass that cannot be considered, _ and have them brought to vote. In this as in other matters Mr. Smith has received excellent recognition during the session. Judge Carr came over last Wednesday to consider the term of court that was set for Monday. He found that it was out of the question for Geo. E. Clarke to so on with his cases, and so issued an order to Clerk Brunson to dismiss the jury and adjourn the term for good. This throws the business to the next term which comes May, 16, and which will be a long and fighting term. The Iowa militia are to be reorganized. The six regiments will be reduced to four, and Algona will belong to the Third.' Two plans are suggested, us with Mason City, Webster One puts us ,.-.... —.,, • City, Osage, Hampton, Hull, Sioux City, Boone, Marshaltown, Eldora and Toledo. The other ranges us with Indianola, Des Moines, Hampton, Perry, Mason City, Boone, Eldora, Waterloo, Marshaltown. Buildings are no sooner mentioned than they are up in Algona these days. Geo. Galbraith got his lumber at Paul's and has the store room we mentioned last week nearly done for Carter. Paul's teams also delivered the lumber for the Rutherford addition, and agood building is well under way there. In the meantime the masons are still stripping the Taylor and Carter stores, and they will be moved as soon as the ground is hard enough. The mayor has appointed the following committees to attend to city business: Streets and alleys, Blossom, Cleary, Vesper; finance, Moflatt, Nicoulin, Cleary; ordinances, Hinchon, Moflatt, Vesper; printing, Smith, Vesper, Magnusson; waterworks, Nicoulin, Blossom, Hinchon; to settle with treasurer, Smith, Vesper. No election was held for minor officers and Dailey holds over as marshal, Stebbins as street commissioner, and Sessions as clerk. Henry Durant, Dr. West, Axel Sundstrom, and Gus. Steinburg went roin here to the Emmetsburg shooting iournament last week. Budd was not able to come on account of death in his family, but a good time is reported The big shoot was between Grimm o Clear Lake and a Marshalltown man, Friday evening, April 8, the annual deolamatorv contest of the Algona high school will be held at the Congregational church, and a representative will be chosen to go to the state contest which is to be held at Creston, April, 22. Prof. Dixson will furnish a full programme of the exercises next week. There will be seven contestants at the home contest, and the prospect is that Algona will be ably represented at Creston. All will remember that Miss Lizzie Wallace was a medal winner at Monticello a year ago, and all will feel interested in encouraging the scholars by their presence this year. The Des Moines News has a long' sketch of the Kenyon bicycle works, in which Bert. Edmonds is a partner. After describing the various rooms _ in the factory the reporter says: " With A. B. Edmonds and Mr. Kenyon, and the gentlemen before mentioned, the company will be well provided with able workmen. Repair work will commence next week and bicycle making about a week later. It is proposed to manufacture a new Des Moines bicycle. It is Mr. Kenyon's idea of a fast wheel and is called the "Pace Maker." Its superior points will be noticed by riders when they try a turn or two. It is said to be the fastest wheel made. It will indeed be a novel thing to see wheels being made in Des Moines. This will be the only factory in the state and between Chicago and San Francisco and no doubt the lovers of cycling will be glad to deal with this company in preference to foreign shops." .Card to tho People of Algonn.

To those who desire I give instruction in drawing from the cast, landscape, figures, etc., in oil, pastel, or crayon. Studio in the second story, north room, of the Comstock building. FLOBENCE CURTIS. An interesting question of Sunday observance is up for hearing Friday in Squire Thompson's court, Chris. Heise having been called to account for keeping his barber shop and bath rooms open last Sunday as usual. As was noted last week notice was served on all the barbers to close their places. The others obeyed, but Mr. Heise, after taking counsel, concluded that he had a right to keep open and did so accordingly. Tho arrest was made Monday afternoon on an information signed by Perry Wilkins and A. Hough. On being brought before the justice the defendant said he wanted to stand trial and the case was set for Friday, the county attorney prosecuting and J. W. Sullivan and W. B. Quarton appearing for Heise. . If tho case is fought through it will be the first test caso in tho state, for wo are informed that there has never been a decision of the supreme court on the matter. The statute, after prohibiting various things on Sunday, says a man must not engage " in any_ labor, tho work of necessity and charity only excepted." It is under the exception that the defendant claims to bo exempt, his work being in a liberal sense one of necessity. Mr. Heiso is thoroughly honest in his action and has taken it solely with a view of learning what his rights really are. The question of what is "necessary" labor on Sunday is one of judgment and probably as many different answers would be given as there are people. Heretofore tho dvug stores, meat markets, livery stables, and restaurants have not boen disturbed on account of opening their doors, and we do not know whether this movement for Sunday observance includes an effort to close any or all of these institutions. Whatever view our readers take of the matter they will all be interested in having the law interpreted and the right settled.
