[<!elley and Lulu Reber, Eugene Sarchett and Ida Campbell, Carl McClel- "an and Minnie Myor. It was thought until lately that L. C. Smith would surely be deputy revenue ipllector. But accepting the nomina- ion for treasurer would indicate that Mr, Smith is not confident. John Goeders has bought a stock of goods at Whittemore and John Cullen, who has been at Jas. Taylor's, will go over and run the store for him. Invoice will be taken Monday. Last evening Hon. Mr. Houck of 3maha, Neb., spoke in Ramsay on the ssues, in the German language. He is a forcible republican orator and is to speak in three appointments in Kossuth. The order of terms of court for the loming two years is published this veek. Judge Thomas will come only once a year, for the October term. Fudge Carr will come three times a year as before. E. P. McElroy delivered a very in- .eresting lecture on the life and times of Jas. Otis to the normal literary so- iety last evening, There is talk of se- iuring a series of lectures by him this winter for the general public. The Plumley will was admitted to probate and the suit of Mrs. Shadle to et it aside adjourned till next terra. Jeo. E. Clarke represents Mrs. Shadle and Judge Cook will defend the will. The case will be hotly contested. E. B. Soper of Emmetsburg is interested in a society in Iowa of all who are ineally descended from soldiers in the •evolutionary war. If there are any n Kossuth who can trace their family jack he would be pleased to hear from hem. The case brought by the son of Lee lorning to secure the property taken loasession of by his aunt was settled ast week. The aunt and her attorney •ave the boy two-fifths of the estate nd he relinquished all claims. The pot of gold is still unfound. Report comes that the peanut boy on he train began having fun with Sheriff Graham's prison birds Monday. The esult was that they appropriated his took in trade and took what they wanted. The boy was not half so smart when he got done with them. Rev. DeForrest, who has been •reaching for the Episcopalians, has >een called to Marshalltown. Alex. 'eddie of Emmetsburg read the service ast Sunday and will be here a week rom Sunday both morning and evening. ?here will be no service next Sunday. Sunday mowiinsr Rev. G. W, j -r "_T i ____l!^_ /-i_l 11' pfeftcih at the Methodist church. Mr. White and wife, formerly Lettie Hutch* in8,are over for a visit: Mr. and Mrs. D. H. Hutchins met them in Chicago last week, and this week they visit In Algona. A cowboy, who styles himself " Wild Jim," did some good rifle shooting yesterday. Incidentally he showed now easy it Is to get the people's money if you know how. It was as clever an exhibition of how to get a crowd and have them pa~y for their entertainment as Algona has lately had. Peter Wtnkel overheard the prisoners, Smith and Bennett, talking over a plan for getting away with Sheriff Graham on the wuy to prison. They Intended to get him foul ahd do away with him. Being informed he promptly put irons on the men and chained them together on the way down. The ladles of the Methodist'church will serve supper on Thursday at the residence of J. R. Button south of Algona. Everyone Is cordially invited to come and bring their friends. Those who have no means of conveyance will meet at the home of Mrs. Wheelock nt 3, 4, and 6 o'clock p. m., where teams will call for them. The Stebbins family had a reunion up at the home of Walt, at the depot, and 26 were present Sunday. It was a pleasant gathering. A canvass showed that they nil adhered to the old Jack- sonlan democracy of Willard Stebbins, whose voice used to be raised in the cause in the early days when democrats were scarcer than they are now. The Dubuque Times says of the "Masked Ball," which is to bo here next wesk: This Is one of Chas. Froh- mun's farces, one of his very best, and is so refined in sentiment and strong in character us to nearly approach legitimate comedy. It has met with universal approval and has early won the position of "the season's favorite." FathersBoschee and Mnlconry are holding meetings at the Catholic church this week, which are well attended. Tonight they speak on the confessional, tomorrow night on the meaning of the mass, and Sunday night on "The Church." The meetings are in the new church, and the speakers are very able Jesuits from St. Louis. Letters are advertised for Blanche Bleary, Sylvia Bowman, A. T. Clark, Essie Cleary, J. Craigs, E. H. Ely, Jas. Fitzgerald, J. H. Gay; John George, H. J. Goodrich, J. W. Grun, W. N. Harman, Estella Henderson, K. C. Leonard, Belle McElhaney, Olof Nelson, Meichol Peiffer, Mary Plntt, L. Right, B. Stephens, W. P. Tuttle, D. G. White. The Courier is very willing to have a joint debate between Sessions and Parsons, but says Mr. Lund cannot participate. A debate without Mr. Lund would be unfair to him, andthoC'ourier ought to see better to his interests. THE UPPER DES MOINES has no interest in helping Mr. Lund, but it believes he should be represented if any joint debate is to be arranged. Leo Smith, who was arrested in the spring for putting ties on the track at Swea City to wreck a train, was sentenced to four years in the penitentiary. It was developed in the testimony that he had been arrested in Minnesota for burglary, und on confession sent to the state reformatory in 1889. He is evidently a bad character, and Judge Thomas gave him a sentence accordingly. The opera house company announce permanent scale of prices as follows: Dress circle, VScents; front three rows in parquet, 35 cents; parquet, 50 cents; 'ront two rows in balcony, 50 cents; jalcony, 35 cents; gallery, 25 cents, these will bo maintained and only first class entertainments given. These prices are lower than the same companies can be seen for in any city in [owa. It turns out that Dr. McCoy has been removed from the board of pension examiners to make place for Dr. Tri- xm. As Dr. Sheetz is left it is possible that the change has no partisan significance. But tho removal of an old soldier, who is a democrat, for a foung man, is certainly noteworthy, Or. McCoy himself recommended the etentionof Dr. Sheetz, and goes out limself. Charles Walston stopped off In Algona lost week on the way homo from Milwaukee, where he has been to pass examination for admission as a railway engineer. Charlie has been firing west of San born seven years, and he mssed a number one examination. He vlll probably fill odd jobs at first, but expects soon to have a regular run. Hallway engineers get good pay, and iarley is in line of promotion. In talking about the Keeley institute tfr. Brown, who has been out from D wight, 111., says that on account of so many branch concerns the attendance s not as large as at one time. But now ,he average is 300, from all parts of the world. He says thousands of permanent cures have been made all about Dwight, while Dwight itself has been >uilfc up wonderfully by the institute. Riverdale had a prairie fire Satur- lay. A man was blasting rock and one explosion threw sparks into the stubble near by and the fire caught in an in- tant. Four stacks of hay went up in no time, but that was long enough for a big gathering of people out of adjoining corn fields and furrows and the flames were stopped. The sight of prairie ire these days brings out a crowd uieker than an Indian scare would in iarly days. Hon. J. M. Joseph, populist candi- late for governor, did not fill his ap- lointments at Algona and Bancroft Monday and so far as we have been in- ormed no explanation has been given, tfo meeting was held in Algona, but at Bancroft J. E. Blackford and M. DeL. 'arsons spoke on the issues. Mr. bseph's failure was a disappointment o many, as they were anxious to see and hear him. Nelson & Son of Gardner, III., bought he Frank Studer farm near Sexton last week, paying $22 an acre. They made a big bargain and are delighted with his country. Mr. Seebert of Dwight, and Dr. Fletcher of Reddick were also lere and have land in view. They ame with Mr. Brown of Dwight, who bought in the county some time ago, and who is enthusiastic for Iowa. Julius leth sold the Studer farm. At the Methodist church Sunday, lev- W. F. Cowles preached in Ijev. j 34fcell's absence. He sad Mrs.!

All day Friday was taketi up in court by a Whittemore case. Young Mr. Snow bought the Chfischllles stock. Old Mr. Snow bought the goods from him. The creditors of young Mr. Snow attached the goods. Old Mr. Snow intervened. Quarton and Joslyn appeared for the old gentleman and Geo. E. Clarke for the creditors. The creditors pot judgment against* the young man and the old man held the goods. The " Masked Ball" by Chas. Frohman's company next week Thursday evening will be the best comedy ever given in Algotia. It came here only because of a vacant night that could not be filled elsewhere on the route. The Dubuque Telegraph editorially endorsed it last week as one of the finest attractions coming to Dubuque this season. The " Masked Ball" is a better known and more popular play than "Gloriana" and the company is of equal merit. While on the coast Lewis H. Smith saw Marcus Bobbins, Algona'a pioneer lawyer. Mr. Bobbins has a farm on Paget sound north of Seattle and 3s enjoying lifo. Mr. Smith also saw Caspar Zeiglemeyer and Thos. Hanrahan. well known about the Milwaukee depot, at Tacoma. He visited his daughter, Mrs. H. B. Smith, at Everett and was with Mrs. Baker and Dick Rist at Tacoma, caught a 44-pound rainbow trout, and enjoyed a pleasant trip. He says business is very quiet in that country. J. W. Tennant is off on a trip which promises some good hunting and fishing stories when he returns. He went, last week, to Abbottsford, Wis., where ho will visit his father. From there he joins a, party which has engaged a special car for two weeks in the woods and among the lakes of the northern part of the state. There is no finer hunting and fishing ground in the world than through northern Wisconsin and Michigan and a pleasant trip is inevitable. The Frohman company next week comes from Des Moines to Algona and from Algona to Sioux City. Tho advance man came yesterday with paper enough to hill Chicago, and to cover the front of State street. The people who paid high prices for "Gloriana" can see the "Masked Ball" for less than it was over played for on earth. It is here because of a night out, and of Frohman's pleasant recollections of our opening night. He regards Algona highly. THE UPPER DES MOINES would urge all who wish to see as fine a comedy presented by as excellent a company us comes to Iowa to attend. This is an opportunity that will not occur again. A curious law question was decided by Judge Thomas in a suit against Simmons & Son of LuVerne, against whom an attachment had been levied and served by a constable. W. B. Quarton moved to set it aside, as the sherilT alone could serve it. J. W. Sullivan and McGrath of Eagle Grove argued that the constable had authority. There are no decisions on the question. Judge Thomas held that service by a constable was not good in attachments, although in replevin cases a constable could act. The lawyers thought the joke was on THE UPPER DES MOINES, as it had printed tho attachment papers and they wore addressed to the " sheriff or any constable." The Dowey Hey wood concert Monday evening was the finest musical entertainment ever given in Algona. Miss Drescher is the best violinist that has been here since: Remenyi, many years ago, while the three Heywoods are masters on the fiute, cornet and euphonium, Clara Mao Byant is an exceptionally entertaining reader, and Max Kramm in his accompaniments and piano solo ranked with the rest. The flute and cornet duet, Schuberts' Serenade, was beautifully rendered, and tho closing quintette, tho Mis- erere from II Trovatore, was all that could bo asked. Each member of the company is an artist, and merited the ready applause that was given. Several encores were responded to and more would have been but for the length of the printed programme.
