DOWNING, wMi 113 West Madlaon St., CHICAGO, ILL. Thanksgiving comes Thursday, Nov. 30. It is nearly a week later than usual. Work has not yet begun on the city well. They are waiting for some supplies. Ex-Senator Katnrar had a good meeting at LuVerno Friday night and made a good speech. Quite a party came from Burt Monday night for Schillings, and we noticed some Whittemoreites. MissLenette Wilson has charge of her father's office and will manage it during his absence in California. The Congregational church has pnr- chased the vocalion that has been in use for some weeks. It cost $500. Secretary of State McFarland made a hit at Whittemore Friday evening. Ho is one of Iowa's best stumpers. A wager of $500 was made on Boles and Jackson Monday between Algona parties. The cold cash was produced. Jos. Thompson now walks about with a crutch. He has reached no settlement with the Milwaukee, hut probably will. Marriage licenses have been issued to John L. Lamken and Mamie Thompson, Nels Jensen and Marian J. Pederson. A little girl last Thursday arrived at Ed. Simpkins' homo, and everybody is happy and doing well. It is the first in his family. Nothing is booked for the opera house now for some time. Manager Haggard is trying to secure something good for the holidays. For Rent.

A series of dances is being arranged for the winter. The old Rutherford 'bus is suporced- ed by a handsome new wagonette. Algona now has three very fine hotel wagons, light, comfortable, and as pretty as a picture. Invitations are out for the marriage of Miss Hattie Heckart and Eugene Schali'ter to occur at Eagle Grove next week Thursday. Their many Algona friends will extend congratulations. A man has been canvassing Algona for money for a college in Nebraska. Algona should respond as the man did who was held up in Chicago by a footpad: "I'm in that business myself; get over on your own street." An entertainment consisting of dramatic and humorous recitations will bo given by Mrs. Emilie B. Roddey next Tuesday evening, Nov. 14, at the Congregational church under the auspices of the young people's society of Christian endeavor. The ladies of tho Algona library association will give a supper at the rooms under the G. A. R. hall, Thursday evening, Nov. 16, at 6 o'clock. Anyone having a good hook to donate can do so at this time, and it will be thankfully received by tho association. Algona hns lately lost two very fine young men, Ralph Miller and J. H. bnughorty. Tho former has opened a drug store at Stratford, a short distance from Webster City, and Mr. Daugherty at present is helping him. We wish both success for both deserve it. Stephen Noble, the old gentleman, was unloading baled hay at Hobart about two weeks ago when the hook slipped and he fell over the wagon wheel breaking his leg below the knee. He is with his son, Nelson, in town and is getting better. Dr. Kenefick set the bones. Jack St. John is showing wonderful vitality. He had typhoid fever 30 days then pneumonia set in in the upper half of one lung and ran 14 days, then went to the lower part and has run 14 days, and now has gone to the lower half of the other lung. Dr. Pride says he is still strong and is going to get well if nothing happens. Letters are advertised for E. W. Archer, Geo. Belton, P. W. Bergman, C. A. Brown, G. H. Clarke, Geo. Cuph- us, Wm.

Wilson, Louesa Wright. The Courier intimated last week that THE UPPER DES MOINES should have repudiated the story about Mr. Lund in the last legislature which was revived from Bro. Platt's poem. Inasmuch as the Courier paid no attention to it we fail to see why we should have noticed it. If we had it would have been charged that that was only an indirect method of circulating it. Jas. Taylor and bride have been visiting in Algona and various neighboring towns the past two weeks. He returned from f elluride, Col., about three weeks ago and was married to Miss Ford of Li vet-more. He is not decided about returning to Colorado, as his photograph gallery burned there just before he was ready to come to bis wedding. Mv. Taylor is a brother pi Mrs. J. C. ®]fcckford, and may locate in in this seotioa. Fred Miller of Plum Creek from Dubuque Saturday nigbt effects of the gas escaping in the room in Chicago. His nephew died before he was found in the morning hut his brother was alive and hopes were felt that he would recover. No one can explain how the gas was left turned on, as Mr. Miller had traveled about ft great deal and was well acquainted with gas fixtures. There must have been a defect in the burner. Members of the masonic and eastern star lodges and their friends are planning a social and literary entertainment for Friday evening with the following programme: Piano solo, Cornie Ingham; address,Rev. W. E. Davidson; vocal quartette, Misses Tweed and Waters, Messrs. Smith and Tellier; vocal duet, Misses Maud Cowan and Ruby Smith; recitation, Miss Edith Clarke; vocal solo, Dr. A. L. Rist; paper, Harvey Ingham; piano solo, Miss Alice Spear. There will be no refreshments, but a pleasant social visit is expected. M. F. Healey of Fort Dodge competed successfully with the minstrel show Monday night, and drew a full house to hear the gospel of democracy. There was a big attendance from the country. Mr. Healey is one of the best talkers in the city of orators and made an excellent speech. His brother and partner in law is a republican and both had just finished a canvass of Webster county one following the other at nearly every school house. His brother was on the committee on resolutions at the republican state convention from this district. They are nephews of J. W. Hinchon. State Senator Johnson of Chicago came, wont, but failed to conquer. His idea was that he was to address Iowa at Cedar Rapids, Sioux City, etc., and when he found that he was billed at Bancroft, Burt, Humboldt and Fort Dodge he shook the dust of the prairie from him and went straight back home. He came to Algona from McGregor and went up to Bancroft. It is said that ho swore by the great horned spoons that he wasn't hired to talk to villages and refused to speak. In any event he did not speak either there or at Burt, and did not go to Humboldt. He is a young man and said to bo pretty bright appearing. He will know more as he gets older. Rev. Bagnell represented Algona at the Epworth league meeting at Webster City last week. It was tho fourth annual meeting for Iowa and the attendance was large. The officers for next year are: President, Fletcher C. Mead, West Liberty; first vice president, Dr. E. Lester Stevens, Des Moines; second vice president, Rev. John W. Southwell, Eagle Grove; third vice president, Luella B. Allbrook, Mt. Vernon; fourth vice president, Rev. W. P. Stoddard, Osceola; secretary, Rov. Frank L. Loveland, Clinton; treasurer, Col. E. S. Ormsby, Emmetsburg. The league adopted a resolution in which it declares: " We are uncompromisingly opposed to tho saloon." The Burt Monitor records the death of John Murray, one of the old men of the county. He died Oct. 81. The Monitor says: Mr. Murray had been ill but a very short time and it was about the first sickness he had known although he was well along in years. Had he survived until about tho middle of January he would havo arrived at his 93rd birthday, being born in 1801. We are not officially advised as to the cause of his death, but is supposed to have been typhoid fever which ho contracted from a severe cold. The deceased was ono of tho earlier settlers in this section and enjoyed a wide and favorable acquaintance and was the oldest man in this vicinity. He leaves a large circle of friends and relatives who deeply mourn his sad departure. The remains were intered in the Burt cemetery yesterday. The Schilling minstrels were first- class Monday evening, by far tho best that ever visited Algonn. They had a Frank Tellle* and Miss Myrta Putsch were delegates to the state meeting of the Christian endeavor society at Mus- eatine last week. They report a large attendance and a very enthusiastic gathering. J. W. Sullivan was called to Iowa City last week by the dangerous illness of his sister. L. H. Mayne of the Republican was colled away last week by the sickness of his mother. Samuel Mayne was unable to leave on account of Mrs. Mayne's illness at home in Bancroft. Guy Tuttle is in Pasadena, Cal., acting as stenographer and typewriter. Miss Grace Gilchrist is up from Laurens for a visit with Miss Cramer. She reports her father as in good health. He is living on the farm and writing some. Robt. J. Dick is out from .Yonkers, N. Y., visiting his aunt, Mrs. A. Rutherford. Miss Margaret Rutherford is home from a lenghty visit with her uncle in Chicago. Miss Minnie Slmdle wont to Minneapolis Monday to visit. Joseph Hudson is homo from Elgin, 111. His employment with the Milwaukee engineering corps stopped with the hard times. A. H. Langdon remains in Elgin and has business projects of his own. Dr. and Mrs. Hudson start today for California. They will remain a year and possibly longer. Ladies, Buy Taylor's fine band and orchestra, handsome costumes, and most notable of all some new jokes and but few old ones. Tho singing was up to grade while the specialties were novel and very entertaining. Ben Mowatt's Indian club swinging was exceptionally clover, better than is often seen, and his' little boy also did well. The musical specialties at the close were also fine. The feature of the performance, however, is Schilling himself, who is a very superior minstrel comedian. Some of his performances wore very laughable. The house was well filled though some seats were not taken. The company is billed for a week at Minneapolis in tho leading theatre there and goes from here. The whole show was of the same character as a minstrel performance that previous performances in the now house havo been of their kind. Algona has been having some exceptionally flno entertainments. C. D. PETTIBONK is homo again and doing business at the old stand. He wants all tho butter and eggs he can get at going prices. Horses! Horses! Horses!

"Make the World Hotter"—Tho Dy- iiiK Words Spoken by Lucy Stono IJlnckwcll to Her Daughter, who Bent Above Her. "Make the world better"—'twas a low sweet whisper, From a voice that was passing from earth away; And tho heart of tho listener beat fonder and stronger, As tho sweet words died out with tho slow passing day. "Mako tho world bettor"—'twas a full life and rounded. There had been no failure to will and to do. God's work had seemed holy in commonest places, And tho sunshine of hope had made heart and brain true. "Oh, to make tho world better"—sweet words of the sainted.

A. i. REV. MITCHELL'S MULES. An Old Story About Ills Aliened Cruelty to Anlinnls—The Facts Distorted. The State Register had the following item in one of its last week's issues: "An energetic insurance agent of this city spent a week in northern Iowa during tho past month and when ho oame home a day or two ago he said in all tho time ho had been gone he had been unable to find a single democrat. There are none that will talk in the northern part of the state at any rate, This gentleman also tells a story that he heard up in that part of the country about Bennett Mitchell, the candidate of tho third party prohibitionists for governor. It runa that when that 'gentleman was tho presiding elder or a minister in tho conference with its head at Algona, ho was arrested, tried and widely advertised for the brutcal crime of cruelty to animals. The animals in question were two mules, which furnished tho minister a team for transportation purposes." This is one version of a story which has been revived in various forms in the campaign, and a version that is essentially incorrect. Mr. Mitchell was never arrested nor tried for cruelty to animals in Algona, nor anywhere else that wo have been able to learn. He was a hard driver and considered by some unnecessarily so when he lived in Algona, and during the high feeling that existed at the timo of tho fight made by him against Judge Weaver, there was more or less talk about having him brought up. But nothing came of it. What would be cruelty to a team of mulos would undoubtedly bo a matter of dispute with those best acquainted with the animals, and as Mr. Mitchell's lived through this, it is fair to remark that they might have been used worse. Rov. Mitchell has many friends in Algona in spite of his course in politics, and during his stay here did a great amount of work that ho was poorly recompensed for. THE BELMQKD EXTENSION. Talk, of Comiectlnft "Witti Mason City—AVlioro Is the AJgonn Survey'* Tho approach of winter seems to bo an appropriate time to revive the talk about getting tho railroad extended f'-om Belmond to Algona. At least that is tho time chosen by Mason City according to tho following dispatch: A survey is now being made to connect tho Mason City & Fort Dodge with the Iowa Central at Belmond. The movement is made in consequence of tho action of tho through lines in reducing tho freight schedule. This will give a through line from Fort Dodgo and this city to Chicago via Dubuque.
