The Boston store has a new sign. A heavy snow storm this morning. Galbraith has a new word this week. What Wesley is interested in is who will be first mayor? Mr. and Mrs. DeFoe are rejoicing over the advent of a daughter. The city has bought $1,800 of water mains. They will arrive soon. The weather is again propitious and farm operations are well along. Alex. White bought J. C. Frank's full-blood pug dog when he left. Next Sunday will be Easter. The season of new bonnets is at hand. Out of twenty-one who tried the last teachers' examination seven failed to get through. Work began on the excavations for . 4.. D. Clarke's new building by FOBS' [.Shop yesterday. R. J. Hunt is going to build an addition to the Townsend house which he lately purchased. Street Commissioner Stebbins has been doing some grood work this spring. \ The streets show it. The big temperance gathering of the good templars and other societies will be held at Algona, May 19-20. Now is the time to lay in your spring hardware and Robinson's is the place. Read .his spring announcement. A Scandinavian named Sorrensen is' planning to put in a vinegar and starch factory and has a lot bought already. For ten days John Goeders will make carpets so cheap that you cannot afford to wear out the wood on a bare floor. One of the prizes of §25 offered in the Iowa City law school for essays is furnished by A. L. Hudson, our one-time editor. Supt. Reed has set next week Tuesday for hearing the contest over the location of a school house at Hanna station. T. H. Conner has finished' the plans ; for the Ferguson-Hoxie block, and the front elevation indicates a very handsome building. One of the handsomest monuments in I the Algona cemetery will be erected ; this summer to the memory of Mr. and Mrs. Laird Galbraith. The social which was to have been [held at Mrs. Cooke's on Thursdayeven- ] ing has been postponed on account of |the Spurgeon entertainment. ; :Samuel Mayne was down Monday on business. He is feeling pretty proud Ijjejse days over a Wilkeswood colt that Tlately arrived at his barn. f We neglected last week to compli- Jient the Wesley Reporter on its new ¥orm and improved appearance. It has ' made a big change for the better. From the State University Quill we note that Miss Jessamine Jones has lately appeared at a society musicale, rendering a nocturne by Leybach. Regular meeting of the W. C. T. U. at the reading room on Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock. A full attendance is desired, as there is important business to be attended to. list of stockholders insures everything that people look for in a bank. The new organization supersedes the R. M. Richmond private bank, and will continue to have the good support Mr. Kichmond always enjoyed when alone. The big addition to the Tennant bouse is up and enclosed, and the new Rutherford building is getting on. Our hotels will soon have room enough to house all the people, something they have been crowded to do lately. The Brunson-Waterhouse cigar factory will be moved soon to the Cleary building, for which the proprietors have recently traded. Mr. Palmer and those who own the old building are talking of putting up a brick this spring. Our Ramsay Chester White enthusiast was down Monday, and says he has already 90 little full-bloods rooting about with 20 sows to hear from. Ben. intends to have enough to supply the county, and no one has any excuse for poor hogs from this on. The Ostrum brick yard is growing with the rest of the town this spring. They are building a new dry-shed of extended capacity, and will soon have room for 125.000 brick. They have contracts for all they can make, and the year promises to be a good one. A meeting was held last night which may result in Algona's securing a fine opera house this season. Arrangements are now under way and by next week we can give nil the details. If the present plans are perfected we shall have the best opera house in northern Iowa. Thosa who have been neglecting sheep in Kossuth will be interested in an item from the Blairgowrie farm. W. E. G. Sanders shipped a car of fat sheep last week from there, and got $6.70 a hundred. We have the promise of some Kossuth records this spring which will be of interest. Those who want to know what gravel will do for our spring roads should look at the Blackford hill. In all the mud the wagon wheels did not cut through ther , and with a little fixing it is as goor^as a year ago. With gravel and broad wagon tires there is no trouble in having good roads all the time. Business has begun at the wigwam this spring, and neither late seasons nor bad roads can stop the trade of this pioneer establishment. What draws from all parts of the county is the "Jones, he pays thefreight" to any station. It costs nothing to ship your goods to any place in the county. ' This week again we furnish twelve columns of extra matter to our readers. On the supplement will be found among many items of interest a digest of the late decisions of the supreme court, a statement about the new state geological survey, and a discussion of how to observe Sunday, at present an issue in Algona. Arrangements are under way for a big temperance gathering at Algona in the near future. An interesting feature of the programme is to be a gold medal declamatory contest, Bancroft having four silver medals and Algona four, tog-ether enough to meet the requirement. That will furnish an interesting contest and we hope will be arranged. W. B. Quarton and E. H. Clarke were called to Wesley one day last week to attend to some further trouble between Geo. Stelzer and Ezra Ford. And since then it is reported that Ford had skipped the county. As he is the chief witness against Stelzer on the shooting affray, it would seem that not much will come of the case nest month. The frame is up for the Johnson agricultural machinery depot, and promises a big and fine-looking building. It will greatly improve the west side of the square in appearance. The breaking boom at Ledyard will be assisted this spring by Geo. Noble, who started last week with two heavy ' teams. George will tear up sod for a couple of months or longer. J. C. Sanders, Wesley's one-time base ballist and cornetist, has resigned his place with the Ormsby banking company at Emmetsburg and is now principal of the Newell schools. The heavy immigration to Kossuth has brought in twenty new school teachers from other counties and states, according to Supt. Reed. That shows how the new settlement is going on. Our readers will be interested in noticing the taxable valuations on the railways for this year, published with the board proceedings. The state ; board raised the general assessment i somewhat, and that raises it a little in I Kossuth. _Mrs. Dr. Morse's brother, who spent j his summer vacation in Algona two I years ago, graduated at Rush Medical [college last week. He will continue his_studies in Philadelphia before en- Bering' the practice. The Algona pedestrians will have I to keep moving if they propose to keep • company with Judge Carr. The Re; porter says he is walking from Emmetsburg to Rodman and back these days as a regular thing. Letters are advertised for Frank McCarl, J. H. McArthur, Geo. G. Rosenan, Frank Swartz, Lonie Smith, Alonzo Smith, C. Thompson, Miss R. Waild, Louis Fallheimer, Gus. Johnson, Fred. S. Clarke, Eugene Criss. Every school board in the county should help celebrate Arbor day by setting out some trees next Friday. With all that has been done Arbor day should still be a day for actual tree planting hereabouts yet many years. At a missionary meeting Sunday evening at the Methodist church, Mrs. Rev. Black presided. Mrs. Gardner Cowles told of the training schools for missionaries, Miss Adams discussed 41 Do Missions Pay?" and Miss Whitney giving a select reading. The announcement of the complete organization of the new state savings bank at Bancroft is conspicuously published this week, and all who read it will see that a very stable institution has been added to the north end. The I nKSfc^nUStW.' ^*u4s( The new Catholic church will stand south of the present building, and will face south on the street east and west. It will be 45x90 feet, with the highest tower in the city, and will be a very handsome and convenient building. The foundation will require about 90 cords of stone. The bell will be put in the church tower. The old church will not be touched but will be moved some time in the future. We are indebted to F. M. Taylor for news of a recent trade by which our old citizen, D. Patterson, has become possessor of a farm in Decatur county. He turned his interest in the Des Moines coal mines for a well-stocked farm, part of which is already profitably set out in fruit trees. His daughter will remain in the Des Moines schools, where she has a good position, but the rest of the family will engage in farming. If names go for anything we are bound to give a good sendoff to one new citizen the county is to get this spring. The Hampton Recorder says: W. G. Ingham has removed to Bancroft, Kossuth county, where he has purchased a farm. Will, is one of the pioneers of Franklin county, his father, the late George H. Ing-ham, having improved the D. W. Mott farm as long ago as 1857. From him Ingham township took its name. * The town is assured this week still another adjunct of a growing city. B. H. Winkie has sold his interest in the dray line to Naudain Bros, and has bought a Studebaker street sprinkler, and will attend to the streets this summer. The Studebaker is a first-class sprinkler, the best in use, and covers 28 feet. Ben, will be a good man to attend to this business, and his enterprise in putting in a city sprinkler ought to be rewarded. We noticed one day last week that someone had deliberately taken a knife and partly girdled a number of the hard maples on the public school ground. One of the finest trees has only a little strip of bark left to make a live of it through. If the vandal could be caught there would be a fine opportunity for experimenting in skin transference. We believe that a removal of a like amount of epidermis from him to the tree would have a healthy effect on both. Marshal Dailey Saturday evening decided that Erick Johnson Dale was making too violent demonstrations in front of Hackman's restaurant, and invited him to take a walk to the coole: 1 . Dale objected and his friends tried to help him, the result being a rather promiscuous knock down for a few minutes. Dale was secured, however, and in the evening 'Squire Taylor cast the stern eye of the law on him, and fined him 15 and costs. Dale and bis friends were considerably the worse for bad liquor. Easter services will be b^eld at the various churches net.'t Sunday. The Catholics have mass at 8 o'clock a. m., m., this being the first time in Algona. The Methodist young people have a special programme for Sunday evening. The Baptists have no special service, being busy with the new church. The Episcopalians have the regular Easter service of their player book. The Congregationalists have a special programme for Sunday evening. Fish Commissioner Gregg was in town yesterday on his way home from a tour of the state, in which he has been looking up violations of the game laws. He has a theory that he can do as much to propagate fish in the streams by stopping the illegal fishingand seining as by hatching out new ones. He has made examples of the law breakers wherever he has caught them t on his trip, and will continue to see to it personally that fishing is done. in accordance with the laws of the state.. While watching the fight Saturday night Jay Hodgman's delivery horse suddenly became inspired with a belligerent spirit and started down the street as though she had had a bushel of oats. At Johnson's implement house she slammed into a good wagon, disfiguring it slightly, and wound up by upsetting and generally demoralizing Jay's own vehicle. This exhibion shows how demoralizing an example street fights present, and ought to encourage the city authorities in a vigorous prosecu- cution of all offenders. Tomorrow night a lecture on the wonderful life and works of C. H. Spurgeon of London in the Congregational church. The lecture will be brilliantly illustrated by 50 life-size stereopticon views of throe generations of the famous Sturgeon family. Rev. C. C. Marston is in charge of the entertainment and is everywhere spoken of as a master at his work. The entertainment Is given under the auspices of the Baptist Ladies' Aid society, and the proceeds go towards the erection of of the new house of worship. The fifteenth annual session of the Iowa state association for the protection of fish and game will be held at the Highland Gun club park, May 24-26. The annual meeting of the association will be held at the Kirkwood house on May 24. A banquet at the Kirkwood will be tendered by the Des Moines club on the evening of the 25th. John G. Smith is president of the a&sociation but these dates we gather from the Des Moines Capital, which says that a fine time is being arranged for by the local entertainers. The Burt independent district case was heard at that place last Friday by Supt. Reed, and resulted in a decision sustaining the Burt board. C. T. Gibbs contested the organization of the district on the ground that the necessary people were not included. The contest turned wholly on whether the outlying lots that had been added to the original town plat were part of it. Supt. Reed held that they were, especially as now they have enough people in the original plat to organize anyrfay. Burt will run her own schools from this on. A good audience was at the Methodist church Saturday evening to hear the programme of the Epworth league, and besides, excellent music listened to discussions of the merits of prominent literary characters. Miss Adams had a thoughtful and original review of Goethe's "Faust," Miss Wise read a biographical sketch of Longfellow, and Miss Chesley likewise of Whitman, while Archie Hutchinson delivered a pleasing oration on Burns. These literary programmes being given in town are uniformly excellent, and should be encouraged by all. CONTEST FOE THE HONOBS, The Algona Driving Park association have decided on giving a racing pro- gramme this summer, and secretary Taylor has invited the representatives of Eagle Grove, Webster City, Eldora, and Emmetsburg to meet in Algona tomorrow to organize a circuit and arrange dates for holding meetings at each place. The local association will offer SI,000, the same as last year, and if a circuit is arranged with the towns that want to go in, we shall have the best races yet held here. Full particulars will be be given of the date finally fixed upon for the Algona meeting. John Wallace has gone to Renwick to remain p_ermanently, though for the present his family will remain in Algona. He will have full charge of the Renwick creamery and its adjacent separators, and will have enough to do to keep him busy. Mr. Wallace was the pioneer friend of the milch cow in Kossuth, and the benefit that the farmers have received through his efforts would be hard to estimate. He has devoted his energies for twenty years and all the money he could make to developing dairying, and it would have been a fitting reward had he secured more of this world's goods for himself as an outcome. His friends will be pleased to learn that he has a good situation in his new place, and to dp anything they can to recommend him to his new neighbors. Rev. Miss Safford has been granted a leave-of-absence by her Sioux Citv church owing to poor health, and will take a vacation. In her parting remarks she said: " She would obey the charge her church had given her and not only would not worry, but would go away rejoicing in the work she feltsure would follow the pledges which had been given, and in the thought of returning with renewed health and strength to take up again her work with such devoted friends and coworkers, and that in leaving-she wished to say: ' God bless you, each and every one.' " Many friends in Algona will regret that she is still handicapped by a frail constitution in the work she is 'doing. The report of her society the past year shows $8,105 collected, a church property free from debt, and ample resources for the coming year. Miss Gordon takes the work in her absence. A Pleasing Entertainment by School Students-Mlsa Herthn Han cock Takes First Prize. The Congregational church was crowded Friday evening for the high school contest. A prize had been offered to the student selling the highest number of tickets, and this served to advertise the meeting very thoroughly. A more enjoyable entertainment has never been given in Algona, and da. the whole the contest was one of the best yet held. The programme opened* with Belle TelHer's rendition of Byron's " Prisoner of Chillon;" Lulu Clarke followed with "Of Thine Own Country Sing;" Nellie Hinchon gave "The Polish Boy;" Maggie Haggard recited "Rock Me to Sleep, Mother;" and Bertha Hancock was the last speaker with "Jamie." The judges were Prof. Doderer of Bancroft, Prof. Chaffee and Miss L. B. Waters of the normal school. Their unanimous decision gave the honor of representing the school at Creston to Miss Hancock; Miss Haggard second, and Miss Hinchon third; the two latter receiving handsome books as rewards. Maud Cowan, who has been a very successful declaitner, was to have spoken "Eagle Rock" in the contest, but had been troubled with a cold for several days and was sick abed the night of the contest. She had made thorough preparation and her inability to bo out was regretted by all as her presence would have added another to the list of excellent performances. Another item of interest in the programme was the poem Lulu Clarke gave, it being the production of her sister Miss Gertie Clarke. It was written as a graduation piece at St. Mary's. Not the least interesting feature of the evening's exercises were the vocal selections by the scholars of the lower rooms. These were to show what is being done in vocal work in the school, and if any patron has had any doubt of the benefits being derived it must have been dissipated. The children of rooms one and two sang with confidence and skill, while those of four and five showed considerable proficiency in keeping their different parts. As a result of this training the generation now being educated should have some good singers, and that is an accomplishment as useful and valuable as any they acquire in school. The receipts of the evening were $57.95 and after pay ing the local expenses this will bo used to defray the cost of attending the state contest, which comes April 22, and which Prof. Dixson, Miss Hancock, and perhaps others will attend. Stone Wanted. I will pay $10 per cord for 20 cords of blasted or broken stone, delivered in Algona before May 1. It3 AMBROSE A. CALL.
