Rev, Davidson's Thanksgiving sermon is highly praised by those who heard it. On account of the cold day the attendance was not large. Court meets next Monday, Judge Carr presiding. The promise is for an interesting session and several new and curious suits are on the docket. Nels Johnson has rented his barn back of Heise's to Nate Robinson and Henry Norton for a year, and says he is going to the old country to visit his folks. The music at the home dramatic was furnished by Miss Elva Foster of Ada!:Who is visiting with her aunt, Mrs. Will Naudain.

The Algona orchestra played for a Knights of Pythias reception at Spencer last week. August Sterzback says that it was a very large and stylish par ty and that they had a most enjoyable time. Two of the finest diamonds ever brought to Algona were received by E. G. Bowyer last week. They were a little over two carats each and very clear, fine stones. Mrs. J. G. Graham of Bancroft gets them. J. E. Mclnroe has sold his half interest in the livery barn to W. M. Strang and the new firm is Hunter & Strang. Both are excellent business men and will keep the business right up. They have good rigs for rent all the time. The Burt Monit9r says: Mr. and Mrs. G. E. Marble and Mrs. Levi Toothman have been at Hampton the past week attending the funeral of their niece, Miss Maud Marble, a sister of Miss Ella who visited here a few days ago. Algona shooters fared pretty well at the Burt shoot last Wednesday. Mel- Haggard got four turkeys, Guy Taylor three, Dr. West three, and J. W. Wadsworth two. John G. Smith, Chas. Smith, and Frank Chandler were up with tho party. Geo. E. Clarke informs us that the Milwaukee company will have tho suit brought by Jos. Thompson on account of his injuries removed to tho federal cou>'t and it will then be tried at Fort Dodgo. This will bo an interesting case and a number of witnesses will be called. The ta:: salo Monday was a very per.cnble affair in tho forenoon, but in the afternoon tho war began and nearly all tho taxes were paid for an acre or loss. It was quite the usual thing 1 to pay ta.ves for tho 1,000th part of tho tract sold. The salo included considerable land. Tho Elmore Eye says that a number of students of the Winona Normal school were suspended for parting their hair in the middle. Wo would advise them to come to Algona. They can part their hair any way they ploaso at tho Algona normal so long as they have any brains under it. When Swea City was named the "city" was tacked on because there was one Swea already. Now that Swea is no more, the city should be dropped and the new town become simply Swea. It is a much prettier name, besides being the original name of the settlement up there. The Bodo debating society has been tackling the question: " Resolved, that the queen of the Hawaii Islands should be restored to her throne," The Gazette says: The latest dispatches from Washington say that Cleveland is awaiting the results of that debate with great interest and some anxiety. Ten shining ten dollar gold pieces from the matrimonial association were part of the valuable receipts of Dr. and Mrs. Rist at their wedding. Alf is the second of the ten to get a benefit and it has now been nearly two years since the boys organized. At that rate only half of them will get in under the five- year limit. Thos. Daily delivered the darkey deserter to the troops at Omaha and he has been fowarded to Fort Missoula. At Omaha they credited the story that he is the man wanted. It looks as though the $60 reward would be received, which is something even if the $1,000 offered by the express company did slip through. An important business change is the sale by Mr. Durdall of his clothing Albert Lea, Jan. J. Mr. Jf of a trader and getting a good bargain has taken it. His announcement in this issue speaks for itself. His successor will be given a cordial welcome. Drs. Garfield and Kenofick go to Lu- Verne today to testify as to the character of the drinks captured in the raid on the Wolf hole in the wall. The beer they tested had five percent, of alcohol, which is pretty strong beer. We have not heard how the cider panned out, but there is no doubt that it also was well supplied with that which intoxicates. The county teachers mooting at Bancroft last Saturday is reported as a very pleasant one by those who attended. The stormy day prevented many from, being there and the prevailing colds and grip many more, but a goodly attendance was out. The programme was carried out as published last week and some excellent papers and discussions resulted. A great alarm over the firing of guns Saturday night was felt in various parts of town. It turned out that Algona had adopted the example of Prairie and that a "chivaree" was in progress down at A. L. Rist's new home. About a dozen big blank cartridges had been shot when Dr. Morse drove in from a night trip in tho country and yelled in the dark, with good lungs, "Get out of there," and the injunction was promptly obeyed. Tho funeral of J, St. John was largely attended last Thursday in spite of the cold weather. As Rev. DeForrest could not be present Rev. Davidson conducted the exercises. A brother oi Mrs. St. John was present from Sleepy Eye, Minn., and it is reported that she will go there to live as soon as her affairs are straightened up here. Mr. St. John had a lot of outstanding accounts and all who were indebted to him should make it their business to settle them at once. Tho "Ticket of Leave Man," which was so well jjiven here Friday evening, is to bo presented at Bancroft tomorrow evening, and a goodly number aro planning to go up from Algona and Burt to enjoy a social time. Wo can uaranteo our Bancroft readers as good a dramatic entertainment as they havo seen lately, without flattering tho young people who take part. They will give an enjoyable and entertaining performance, as good as most of the travelling companies, Mrs. Fred Foster suffered a bad accident Saturday. She was carrying a pail of scalding water when she was taken with spasms of some kind and fell in such a>way as to badly scald herself. She was burned from her hips down, especially at the knees and feet, but only sldn keep and no serious results are feared, Jim Stacy was riding by and was called in by a little girl who was present and he at once got Mr. Foster and Dr. Pride. Tho doctor soon relieved her from spasms and soothed the burned surface, and she will be all right in a few days. The old Swea postofllco is now Eagle postofflce, and Swea City will doubtless get un office, which is badly needed. The Bancroft Register says: The post- offlce department has ordered the name of the office at Swea changed to Eagle Lake. There is a good omen in this for the people of Swea City, as it looks very much as if the authorities were proposing to establish a, postofflce at their town. Of course it would hardly do to have two offices of so near the same name, and as long as there is but one office in the neighborhood, it could make no difference, hence the only conclusion to be made is that the long-deferred boon is at last to be granted. The total receipts at the charity ball were $99 and the total expenses $39.50, leaving a net balance of $59.50. The ball was gotten up by the young ladles in the interests of the reading room but the receipts were so much larger than expected that the whole amount will not be turned to this account. They will invest $25 in subscriptions to leading periodicals for the coming year which will be put in the room. The remaining $34.50 will be given to the relief corps to be added to the fund for general relief. The corps has a soldiers' fund and general fund. The latter is for the benefit of all needy poor. THE NAME OF CHARITY. The Happiest and Most Successful of All the Season's Entertainments Was the Charity Ball. 1 The Ticket of Leave Man," by Home Talent, Was Put On Nicely, but Poorly Patronized. People don't like to practice virtues for their own sake. They seem to prefer thorn mixed with less altruistic ends. As some wise man discovered tiinq, and both won deserved applause. Their roles would have tried experienced actors and their success speaks for their hard work and natural aptitude. S. C. Spear revived memories of old- time home exhibitions and played the detective well, Miss Olive . Salisbury could not bo excelled in her part as a garrulous old lady, Miss Lizzie Wallace was likewise successful in her part, while Gep. Hamilton made a good Jew, Irving Dodgo a good waiter, and Guy Taylor a dignified banker. Much credit is due Mr. and Mrs. Bishop, who trained the company and who acted in leading roles. They nro very pleasant people socially, and uro capable actors. Mrs. Bishop's dancing was encored, and ho was applauded At, . i . . I-,. »vtiD «ui;uruu, tmu. uu wilb tim.Muuuuu their souls are easiest reached when heartily. The small attendance did their stomachs are actively and enjoya- not afford receipts that repaid tho work- All who know of such by reporting to the relief corps can secure assistance BO this, mjpney la^ts, 41^|pf " bly engaged. We drop a nickle in tho contribution box as though it were a five dollar gold piece, and then go to a church fair to vote a chair to the most popular man and throw in five dollar gold pieces as though they wore nickels. We contribute to churches and reading rooms and all benevolences with cheerful countenance so long as it is by the route of u good supper. Charity is the greatest of virtues. But direct charity is begrudgingly practiced. We want to be selfish oven in charity and connect it with something that amuses or entertains. To direct appeals wo give a dime and remark that charity begins at home and we must economize. But we go to a supper for charity's sake and add to the creature comforts of a good meal the consoling thought of our self- sacrifice and cheerful benevolence. We attend concerts for charity, wo go into raffles for charity. Wo dunce for charity. In fact since Saturday night it is safe to assume that charity and dancing form an irresistible combination, for tho largest, most enjoyable, and most enthusiastic social gathering of the season was tho charity ball. Tho music by the Marshall town orchestra was exceptionally fine, and Algona " had gathered there her beauty and her chivalry, and bright tho 'lamps shone o'er fair women and bravo men." And sweet charity is tho gainer by a goodly sum, which it is safe to say could not havo boon secured more easily or agreeably in any other way. The usual definite announcement had been made that tho music would begin promptly at 8 o'clock. And tho usual "unavoidable" delay occurred. But a step towards reform was taken, for by 8:80 tho music did start with a preliminary wait/,, and at 9 o'clock the grand march formed with at least 40 couples in line. This was tho pleasantest spectacle of the evening. The hall beautifully decorated with bunting' and evergreens and hung with mirrors, tho handsome costumes of the ladies, and the attractive evolutions of tho march, which had been planned by Miss Lonetto Wilson, all combined to make a picture not often excelled for beauty anywhere. After that tho usual pro- gramme was followed and until tho clock announced midnight the iloor was filled with merry dangers, except as they wandered to a well supplied table in one corner, where under the shadow of an immense Japanese umbrella coffee and sandwiches were served. Among those present from away were Miss Carrie Kamrar of Webster City, who visited Miss Edith Clarke, Mr. and Mrs. Graham, Henry Simpkins and Thos. Sherman of Bancroft, and Mr. and Mrs. Hardy Buell of Burt. A party of 10 couples had planned to bo present from Eagle Grove, but Supt. Hughes was taken sick with grip about a week before. He was recovering and as late as Friday afternoon word was sent that the party would come. But Saturday afternoon he bad a relapse and the excursion was given up. Had it been any other than Saturday evening a large attendance was insured from Bancroft, but as they could not get home, most of them gave up coming. Home Dramatics. A small but appreciative audience was out Friday evening to hear "The Ticket of Leave Man" presented by home talent, and enjoyed one of the best entertainments of. the year. The was njrifte;. ,„ torjEWgb. and trouble, and tho people missed an enjoyable evening. BOWYER'S HOLIDAY DISPLAY. Now Goods Received Tills \Voolc aro Now oil Exhibition — A Complete Xilno.
