Taylor expects to move his of- lec to the new rooms over the State )ank this week. A little girl arrived at Thos. Bennett's yesterday. Tom. feels just as mppy as President Cleveland. Hard times cut no figure in Fentpn. Tour farmers are reported as buying ;op 'carriages the past tan days. Mrs. Young, wife of the new comer who bought the Hegarty farm, died VIonday and will be buried today. Nearly 400 tickets for the world's fair lave been sold at the Algona depots. At least 500 will go from this point. Mr. Perry is again at E. V. Swett- .ng's after spending five weeks at Swan 1/ake. He expects to go east before ong. The county fair begins in two weeks, a good way to make a raise is to cap- ,ure a premium. It will be paid in full n cash. The ladies decided last week to keep up the reading room. It will be sustained outside of the W. C. T. U. organization. The populist county convention comes the day before the democrats meet. If ;here is no fusion we shall have three ull tickets. All persons interested in a reorganization of the reading room are cordially invited to meet on Friday at 3 o'clock p. m. John Goeders has his fall stock open and invites our readers to look over jome bargains. He has put in a fine .ine of goods. A business card locates D. D. Townsend at 4303 Cottage Grove avenue, Chicago, in the real estate firm of John Cheshire & Co. It is rumored that a son of Silas Rpupe of Lotts Creek died lately of typhoid fever and was buried at Whittemore yesterday. The enrollment at the normal school this week exceeds 80 and will easily pass 100 this term. Prof. Chaffeo is highly pleased at the prospect. Danson & Butler will have the office rooms in the Cowles block and will move as soon as the building is finished. They will have handsome rooms. The jail has an inmate from Ledyard who came down Saturday on the charge of larceny. A tramp taken at Whittemore is also shut up in jail here. Regular meeting of Eastern Star chapter Tuesday evening, Sept. 19. It is desired that all the regular officers be present, as there is work to be done. Next Tuesday evening is set for open- ening the opera house for the season. Madeline Merli with her company is the attraction. She is said to be very fine. Everybody who intends to see the world's fair should remember the half- fare rate next week Tuesday. For $25 anyone can get a good view of the finest show on earth. The democrats meet two weeks from tomorrow to name a full county ticket, and also to put up a candidate for representative. Until then the local campaign will remain rather quiet. Marriage licenses have been issued to Christ Nelson and Inger Christiansen, Julius Baker and Viola Van Henvel, J. W. Blakebrough and Mable Farrow, F. A. Patterson and Laura Krauso. The school board last week chose Miss Mamie Farrell of Mason City to fill the vacancy in the public schools. She has taught two years in Sanborn, and comes very highly recommended. The big auction of lands comes next Saturday. D. A. Haggard is to do the selling and a big list is to be thrown on the market. It is likely that outside buyers will be attracted by the chance for bargains. The county has two new settlers who will soon be here. Mr. MoBride, who has rented the Nate Robinson farm, and Phil. Waltmann, who has rented the Frank Benschoter farm. Both come from Keokuk county. A. F. Dailey left yesterday for Devil's Lake, where he will see to overhauling Call & Cowles' mail steamer. It is oui of order in some way. They have hac a steamer for three years for carrying mails on one of their routes. J. P. Fohlin's daughter visited up in Swea City and has caught the contag' ion. She is down with a clear case ol typhoid fever. A son of the Mrs Young who died Monday is also just re covering from fever caught up there. The railroads will give an excursior to Chicago at one fare for the rounc trip, selling tickets on Tuesday next Sept. 19, good to return until Sept. 26 This is for Iowa day at the world's fair and everyone who can will find this a cheap time to go. Advertised letters for week ending Sept. 9,1893: Miss Bertha Clerk, John Newert, Miss Lillian Hill, S. C. Trum bull, Frank Marks. Miss Senj.ce Myers Mark Miller, John Meothies, John W Skelton, Mrs. Benj. Sagel, Hendrick Kohl, W. H. Parker. The famous trotting dog with little girl driver, which proved such an at traction at tbe state fair last week wil be at the county fair on the second o hildren's day. A phonograph that anyone can talk into and then have what he says talked back to him is also o be here. Judge Duffle, many years on the bench tore, has just been appointed by the governor of Nebraska to fill a vacancy n that state. The judge is one of the eading lawyers of Omaha, and has for rears been a steady worker. Like fudge Hyatt he owes a great deal to heKeeley cure. Miss Myrtle Nicoulin last week took )ut a notarial commission and has se- jured a seaL She is the first lady to >ecome a notary public in Algona, and ve guess in this part of Iowa. She now has pretty full charge of her ather's business, and being a notary is . great advantage. Another business change is in prog- ess. Last week Fred Wilcox traded he interest he recently bought of C. 3. Creed in the Parish hardware store o Frank Nicoulin for land in Dakota. Messrs. Nicoulin and Parish are in- oicing the stock and one or tho other vill take tho entire business. Last Saturday Chocyer Hudson dealt out a barrel of sugar in 50-cent pack- iges to make it go around. Carter got iome Monday and his wagon had noth- ng to do but distribute it while it last- id. It is likely tho famine will be over his week, but for some days it was impossible to get sugar of any kind. Rev. Bennett Mitchell would have }eon nominated for governor by the bird party prohibitionists lust week if ie had not favored Mr. Cofiin. He was n active worker in the convention and s as vigorous as ho used to bo when he •an a brick kiln to get material for .he Methodist church hero in Algona. John Grove has his hardware bust- ness in shape and opens up this week vith an announcement to the public, Ie h ( as a fine line of stoves and fall joods and is in the field to sell, Our 'eaders will do well to look over his >argatns before buying. They will ind that he will meet all competition. Company F is arranging to invite leveral other companies to Algona the ast of this month for a contest at the rifle range. Such a plan was made at he state encampment, but has not yet been carried out. This range is considered one of the best in the state and a big attendance of military men is expected. I 1 The Algona orchestra played at Whittemore Friday evening for the jrand opening ball at the new hall. The boys say there were 70 couples out, \nd that the hall is as fine as any in northern Iowa. It is the second story of the new block built this season, and las every convenience that could be desired. The daily papers intimate that Dr. Sonefick has been appointed on the board of medical examiners for pensions by the department at Washington in place of Dr. Burr. This will eave the board with him, Dr. Sheetz and Dr. McCoy. Dr. Kenefick is well qualified for tho place and the appointment is an excellent one. The prospect is now that the stock exhibit at the county fair will be as good as it was at tho state fair. Hav- ng an outside judge to award the premiums on hogs, sheep and cattle will do what it has done for horses. Last year there was the best show of horses ever seen here, and this year all the stock exhibits will be filled. Chairman Geo. V. Davis sends us a call for a populist county convention to be held Wednesday, Sept. 27. It will be at the court house at 1 o'clock, and will nominate candidates for all offices from representative to coroner. Each township is entitled to two delegates and one extra for every ten votes cast For A. J. Westfall in 1891 or major part thereof. J. W. Gillespie is here for his annual visit with his sister, Mrs. Rutherford. This year, however, he will not rely on Kossuth for his chicken hunt. He is just in from Dakota. He says the hickens were plenty but the country so dry that it was hard to do anything. We complain of dry weather here but he says this looked like a fresh garden when he first saw it. There have been a good many things of late to throw suspicion on Bro. Hinchon's real zeal for the democratic cause, and we dislike to report that he is adding a bath room to his house. But such is the case, right here at the beginning of the campaign. He says that it is merely a shed for odds and ends, but we are credibly informed that it is really a bath room. Tickets will be on sale for the theatre Saturday morning at 9 o'clock. The bills are up for the play and Manager Weiser of tho Decorah opera house writes that Miss Merli gave great satisfaction there. The company is high grade and in keeping with those that have thus far appeared in the new house in Algona. The play is a comedy drama and said to be very dramatic anc amusing. Col. Spencer's card this week bring: a new man and a strong one into the field for the treasurer's office. He is so well known all over the county that his bare announcement is sufficient introduction. As candidate for representative he received the largest majority ever given to a republican in the county, and has always been a popular man with all who knew him. He will be a capable official if chosen and will have a good support in the convention. They tell a pretty good story on Bro. Ryan down at LuVerne. He was sitting near the window on a south-bound train lately when one of the brethren accosted him and asked where he was going. He replied that he was on the way to Fort Dodge. " Why don't you get off here and change cars as you usec to?" was the next question. Bro Ryan hemmed a little and remarked that he had found that ho could make better connections at Eagle Grove This may be a campaign slander. A curious freak of nature is displayed in a maple tree in front of the Judge Call home. It is not unusual for some maple trees to come out earlier than others in the spring and ripen earlier in the fall. But it is unusual for one part of one tree to operate by itself, re gardless of the rest of the branches On this tree the top leaves out whil the lower branches are still bare, anc its leaves are dead and brown in the fall while all else is deep green. It a curious sight at both seasons. A rather interesting law suit comes on aV tbe next term of the federal cour at Fe-'t Podge, It arises from " lorse trade made by an Idaho man of a Carload of horses to Mat. Richardson or a mortgage on some Missouri land. 3ur readers will remember the contest ?r the horses in a pasture north of the mill where both sides were fighting for jossession. The Idaho man says the mortgage is worthless and that he was windled. Geo. E. Clarke and J. W. Sullivan are for tho plantiff and W. B. Quarton for the defense. It will be a lotly contested case. A rumor is afloat that Tom Gannon vns shot last week in Chicago, but no Infinite information is at hand. A .elegram went through stating all that s known. Geo. W. Skinner went to Chicago Sunday night and it was re- lorted Hint he was after the remains. 3ut he had other business. He inquired about Gannon but tho police tnew nothing about the matter. _ No •eport has been seen in tho Chicago inpcrs of any shooting. Tom is the ion of a pioneer and is well known in ho county MS the one-armed base ball ilaycr, shooter, etc. Tho golden wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Vmandus Studer was celebrated at heir home in Prairie yesterday, the iricsts from Garner, Prairie, and St. To. being present. All tho friends and •elativcs were there and made merry n honor of the hale old couple. Pho- .ographer Peterson wont out and took i picture of the group of near and dis- nnt relatives, numbering 72 who were •here. The only one absent was Nathin, who is still confined to his homo. Ml who were not there will join with hose who were in congratulating tho vorthy old folks on having reached the iftieth mile stone of a happy married ifo, and wish them many years yet to come. By a change in tho faculty in tho normal school Miss Zerwehk drops out ind Miss Jessie Srnitli and Miss Gerrude Clarke are added to the faculty. Vliss Zcrwehk has been an excellent oachor and her departure from Algona will be regretted. The two new in- tructors, however, add materially to ho strength of the school. Miss Smith Desides being a graduate of tho Minnc- iota university has taught four years, nuoh of the time at tho state school at Faribault. Miss Clarke is a graduate of Notre Dame and has spent a year at Wcllesloy. Both are well qualified to do tho high grade of work demanded )y the school. Tho normal school has mproved in many ways this year, and vith tho addition of these instructors is well equipped for the future. Good Clianco for n Trade.
