Plum Creek has a Good Will society which seems to be affording the people there some very sociable gatherings. Our new sheriff, C. C. Samson, is having a hard time to find a house. Vacant houses are very scarce in town at present. The court calendar for this term is the largest the county has ever had. There are 168 cases. If the docket is cleaned up it will take three weeks.

The Odd Fellows are in their new hall and will have a public dedication in about a month. This will be announced later. It will allow the public to see this handsome room. Jan. 8 and Postmaster Starr's retirement are a week nearer. Will the new man be named before then, and if so is Bro. Hinchon the man? Or is it Mr. Ford or Mr. Heise-or Mr. Pettibone? Rev.

There are more cases on for hearing than at any previous term for years. The jury was called yesterday afternoon on the case of S. H. McNutt vs. A. L. Cheney for a car load of hay at Hobart. Geo. E. Clarke represented McNutt, and W. C. Danson, Cheney. The Milwaukee company advertises a cheap plan for getting some very handsome world's fair views. We can cheerfully commend the quality of the pictures. There is no cheaper way to ornament a home than is thus afforded. Everyone who orders one portfolio will take the lot.

Doxsee was chosen secretary and the old board of directors were re-elected. Miss Dodd, who has for six years been when he sees the sermon in the second paper he feels inclined to profanity and that feeling increases as ho picks up each succeeding paper until he is worse off than as though he had no sermon at .all. tf he last West Bond Journal an nou nces es that the bank J. C. Blackford is connected with has voluntarily closed and gone out of business. No mention is made of what Mr. Blackford will do in the future. We note among the stockholders that he had 20 shares and Barnet Devlne 50 shares of stock, while the State Bank of Bancroft was largely represented by its stock holders. Work has been stopped at the city well and over $200 has been put into what proves another unsuccessful, experiment. One point is in but Mr. Stahl failed to locate the end of it in enough water to produce any visible results. The second point he is pulling out, as the committee decided to quit work without any further expense. Nothing further will be done this winter. . The Dingley & Moffatt case against Martron, for damages on account of that cribbing stallion, was set for this morning. The case of the Caxton Co. vs. J. J.

They were Baker of wolf scalp fame, Kelloy, who forged a $190 check at LuVerne, Jones and Fuller, who stole the hogs, and the five Germania citizens wanted for illegal liquor selling, one of them on two charges. The grand jury this year is E. N. Weaver, E. McWhorter, Wm. Billsborough, M. Froilinger, and G. Wallbillig. They will keep Kossuth straight and law abiding. John G. Smith has received a very unanimous 'endorsement for appointment to succeed Mr. Griggs as fish commissioner. Tho letters come from men of influence all over the state and are all very hearty in their approval of his candidacy. The term of Mr. Griggs docs not end until April 80, and probably nothing will be done soon about chosing a successor. But when one is chosen Mr. Smith will have the inside track from present appearances. Jas. Orr agreed last week to clean up and varnish the editorial table in this office for nothing if we would find a new resting place for a week for the accumulations of the past 12 years—we took him up, The fact is our lady visitors have looked at that table for some years in a way to suggest that we would be warranted in going to some expense in the matter, and it is with great pleasure that we announce that hereafter they will have nothing to complain of. A trade was made last week by which Dr. Morse gets the W. W. Wheeler house and Mr. Wheeler takes the Morse house. Mr, Wheeler's family will move to Des Moines and Dr. Morse's family occupy their new home about New Years. We are sorry to lose the Wheelers from Algona, but congratulate the doctor on the fine home he gets, Mr. Wheeler is a genial business man, and Mrs. Wheeler a lady of very superior mental culture and attainments. A very small audience was out for the social union club Friday evening on account of the bad weather, but an excellent programme was given. Miss Jordan gave an entertaining account of the mythology out of which the constellations got their names in astronomy, and Rev. Dorward had an excellent paper on "Show Your Colors." An instrumental duet by Misses Farrell and Jones and a vocal duet by Miss Cora Setchell and Geo. Hamilton added to the enjoyment of those present. The Bancroft Register publishes an item about Burt and that town furnishing the paid admissions to the home entertainment Friday, which seems to treasurer and had the business of society in charge, reported that bad sold 75 bibles the past year. the she She resigned her office, but no successor has been chosen. credit the rumor that the Algona visitors went in on free tickets. We have enquired as to this and find that outside of those who had parts in the play and acted, only two complimentary tickets were issued; to Algona visitors, one " *-- after a full hearing last Wednesday. W. B. Quarton appeared for Wolf and Raymond prosecuted. Drs. Garfield and Konofick both testified fully us to Its alcoholic character, but Wolf swore that ho did not know it was alcoholic and was turned loose on this pretext. Mr. Raymond will try and appeal to the district court thereby raising a new and close question. If he can have the district court review the case the Lu- Vorno prairies may yet bo watered with a wagon load of very excellent beor. Oliver Bonschotor, one of the. pioneers, is very sick at Fairmont. I-lo was taken with hiccoughs and they could not be stopped for over a week. Mrs. A. L. Seeley and Ned Benschoter are with him. Grant was up last week. It is a curious case. Another world's fair story has como to light. It seems that in the house that Wm. Peck of Burt and Wm. Carter of Irvington wore stopping, either through a failure of the gas fixtures or to the light not being properly turned off the gas escaped in Mr. Carter's room, and but for the coming in of Fred Jain, son of Rod Jain of Portland, many might have been suffocated. Ho smellcd the gas in the hall aud called the clerk. All the transoms wore open and before morning the gas might have smothered all tho sleepers in the house. It was a narrow and fortunate escape. Yesterday's Sioux City Journal has this from Washington: "Tho postof- fice at Algona is giving tho politicians a small amount of annoyance. Th.e principal candidates are J. W. Hinchon, editor of the Courier, and D. S. Ford. Hinchon, being a newspaper man, has tho right to suppose that he has the encouragement of Mr. Richardson, but on tho other hand it is hinted that Mr. Ford has the backing of Dan Lament, secretary of war, who has been suspected before of sticking his thumb into Iowa politics. If Lamont is really backing Ford all the other candidates might as well get out of tho way." The Kossuth wolf hunt is assuming huge proportions everywhere except at home. The Sioux City Journal says editorially: One of the biggest wolf hunts that ever took place in the state Is being arranged in Kossuth county. The farmers, who are sheep raisers, have met with such a loss by the sheep killing wolves that they have organized and will sweep tho Des Moines valley from one end of the county to tho other. After the wolves have all been run Into a small circle and killed, their pelts will be disposed of to the county and the proceeds will go towards furnishing a grand supper for the participants. The railroad wreck at Ledyard last week was a pretty considerable affair. It occurred at an open switch and the engine was on an embankment. The Bancroft Register says: " The engine plunged down the bank, turning completely over and landing on her top. The heavy iron switch tie got caught in the wheels some way and for about 15 minutes they continued to revolve, tearing up the frozen ground and knocking the machinery to pieces. Tho steam dome was broken off, but the weight of the heavy engine held it in place against the hard earth, so that, as the trottle was left open, the steam had to leak the cracks before the wheel with the irons caught in it ceased to revolve." The engine and four cars were ruined. It was an expensive affair, D. H. Hutchins is gathering a full and satisfactory experience with bunco men. A short time ago he was visiting his daughter in Sioux City and as he was walking along the street a stranger accosted him and inquired about A. D. Clarke and told Mr. Hutohins to tell him when he got back that J. C. Clark of Dubuque sent regards, Then he asked about a banker named Hall. Mr. Hutchins said he guessed he meant Call. The man agreed and said Mr. Call was then in the city at a certain' hotel and wanted him to go down and meet him. Mr. Hutchins knew better than that and told the man that he guessed not. He afterwards found out that the hotel named was a gathering place for tough characters, and Mr. Clarke knew nothing about any J. C. Clark of Dubuque. Saturday night about 1 o'clock Frank workin a Norwegian named Thuysbrok, pretty roughly when Hunter's brother-in-law, Weldy, came up and got them out of the barn. After they had gone a good buffalo robe and five whips were missed. They were arrested and brought be- fore'Squire Clarke and gave bonds to appear a week from next Friday for trial on the charge of assault and battery. Mr. Bamsoy claims that they had nothing to do with the missing: articles. The Norwegian was not much hurt, but was very roughly handled) a whip being broken over his head.
