The bank of Bode will soon be a state bank, the stock ($30,000) having nearly all been subscribed. Burt is incorporated and will elect a mayor Jan. 16. Who will be the first to be addressed as " his honor i"' Marriage licenses have been issued Chas H. Davidson and Blanche Healey, Henry Sleyster and Dena Meyer. The week of prayer is being: observed by union meetings, the Baptist, Methodists and Congregationalists joining. Miss Edith Wheelock is out again after her tip over on the Kjihn hill. She is fortunate in, being so slightly injured. Prof. Gilcbrist's injnries in his runaway consisted mainly of a badly sprained wrist, which is getting well slowly. The ladles of the Algona Library as< sociation will serve a 15-cent to affect one of his eyes, which has been troubling him for some years, and he concluded that it would be necessary for him to go to a hospital for treatment, which he did last Tuesday evening, going to Iowa City. We hope to see hitn come back in better condition. It is reported that Bro. Braflttagan of the Emmetsburg Democrat has received his appointment as postmaster. This brings a ray of hope to other journalistic brethren in Algona and elsewhere. But no appointment has yet been made at Port Dodge and that is the storm center of this section. The historical lectures by E. P. McElroy begin tomorrow evening at tne Congregational church parlors. The opening lecture will be introductory, Mr. McEtroy will speak about 45 minutes each evening and the course will be instructive as well as interesting. There should be a large attendance. Mrs. Setchell announces that the $36.70 netted for charity by the charity ball is now in the relief corps fund to be drawn on for needy poor. She says: " Tho corps tenders its sincere thanks to the managing committee of the charity ball, also to all who, by contrl- " . i. _i * i. v. n V»/\«frrttiTn I ter members of the corps, emulate her good example in being ever ready to extend ft helping hand to those ift distress and ever willing to advance the best interests of the corps." Claire Blossom* whose lo&g illness we noted a few weeks ago, died Sunday morning and Was buried yesterday at 2 o'clock. His trouble was one form of consumption, general disseminated tuberculosis, and his weakened condi^ tion developed into ulcers. He was about 10 years old and until a year ago enjoyed fairly good health, except that his feet and legs were rather weak. He was J. R. Blossom's oldest boy and a happy, much-loved child. The youngest boy, Josh, is vigorous and as strong us his brother was weak. A trade was made last week at Rockwell City which brings a string of fast horses to the county. F. A. Corey of Wesley and E. P. Bircher are the interested parties and they now have Victor B., a four-year-old stallion with a record of 2:294; Nat Carpenter, afive- vear-old stallion with a record of 2:33; and Young Stockwell, a thoroughbred runner, with a fast mark. The horses will be kept in Algona and are a prom- HINTS AT THE MYSTERIOUS The Death of Burke Fail-child of This County May Disclose a Jtimler at MinWat Point, Wis. JIM DIDN'T WORRY.

Setchell's tomorrow evening. Allare invited.^ Refreshments and programme' cost 15 cents. MissLolla Randall began teaching the Mose Godden school Monday, taking the place of Miss Minnie Shadle, who is now teaching in Burt. Supper will be served by tho ladies at the Methodist parsonage on Thursday, Jan. 11, commencing at 5:dO p. m. Everybody is cordially invited The supervisors cut down the bills for rooms rented as voting places from $3 to $2. They thought the latter sum enough for one day's room rent. Bode is right after the state offices. Cnpt. Rossing wants to be state dairy commissioner and Chris. GrUllix- son wants to be state oil inspector. R. J. Hunt has been having a sick spell, brought on by a little swim he took in the river a few weeks ago after a barrel that had got away from him. Will. Brunson is Sheriff Samson's deputy and he takes hold like an old hand. The two make a team that cannot be beaten in any county in the state. J W. Wadsworth wenttoDes Moines to attend the meeting of tho draft horse association yesterday and the meeting of the state agricultural society today. Psstmaster Starr's term of office expired Monday, but he is holding the fort just the same. No hint of any appointment of a successor is heard from Washington. Aiden Benedict and his company come next Monday evening. A dancer has been added since their last appear- (Jiitiii iu y ijinij n.iuu uu «•«• ,.-. —T — v bution or work, shared in the bestowal of this gift." One of the events Algona should be- o-in to look forward to is the state high school contest, which is to be held here the first Friday in May. There are _20 schools waiting to get into the association if a vacancy occurs, and the contest, will be full. It will bring representatives from all over Iowa and bo a big event. The meeting of the county agricultural society will be hold Saturday afternoon and every farmer in the county should attend. In spite of the rain last fall the association is on its feet and is running for a first place among county fair organizations. Officers and directors are to be chosen and the financial report is to be made. This office has been printing an argument for Geo. E. Clarke this week before the supremo court which is on a curious question. In a suit between C. Breen and Wm. H. Kuhn the notice to the latter had H in place of K and read Huhn. Mr. Clarke contended that this vitiated the notice, but Judge Thomas decided against him and he appeals. Yesterday's Register had the following from Washington: " Hon. James J. Ryan of Algona is here in cogmto. He is particularly anxious that his presence in Washington shall not be known, because he is here to circumvent, if possible, the designs of Hon. j P Duncombe upon tho Fort Dodge postoffice." Think of James appearing " in cog." The social union club had a very interesting programme last Friday evening. The discussion of the world's congress of religions by Miss Jones and Prof. Chaffee was ably conducted and Rev. Bagnell gave a pleasant review of Wallace's new book, "The Prince of India." Piano solos by Misses Alice Spear and Cornie Inghain added to the entertainment. Next Monday evening the people make At races A few years ago an old man named Burke Full-child came to Algona and went down into River-dale, where he made his home until he died last fall. He never told where he came from nor related to anyone anything about himself further than onoe to tell C. B. Matson that he had a nephew in Milwaukee. He gained a little notoriety but ising addition. We judge thattheboys got a bargain and that they will — ''" some money the corning season least they can get up some good here at hotne. No term of court passes without some little joke about ^Squire Raymond's penmanship. But all of them together do not equal the one which came out in a justice trial at Lu Verne. The 'squire had written a notice which the constable swore he served by reading to the defendant. The opposing attorney had the constable testify as to the time he visited the defendant and the time he finished the reading and then asked him to read the notice to the court. After putting in twice the time he claimed to have spent he gave it up and admitted that it was too much for him and the court held that no notice had been served. This for actual record is as good as anything they can toll on Creel ey. Here is an item that is old enough to be good. About the time C. A. Bishop was addressing the Bancroft people at the home dramatic, Col. Hunt, who once gave "True Blue" in Algona, was presenting that thrilling drama at Des Moines. When the time came for tho grand tableaux the man who was to light the red light forgot his part and the curtain had to come down. Hunt remonstrated with the actor in such a way that the latter blacked his eye. For this Hunt tried to have the man indicted, but the grand jury declined, and then he had Win. Foster, manager of the opera house, arrested on the charge of riot, etc. Hunt also wanted a big sum for great bodily injury and damages to person and reputation. Take this case of Hunt with our late experiences with Bishop and the talented young tragedian, L. Bufus _Hill and it seems as though a justifiable presumtion arises against these traveling organizers of home dramatics. will have an opportunity to hear Aiden Benedict and his company in Fabio Romani." They were at Sioux City Saturday evening and have been playing in ail the large cities of the state to good houses. Tickets are on sale at the low prices that have been adopted this season and a good house should greet our old-time school teacher. * The Sioux City Journal suggests a hunt that ought to be undertaken, and we suggest Bro. Hinchon as captain of it: There is to be a grand hunt in Kossuth county next week to round up sheep-destroying wolves. After catching these lupine enemies it would be well if the doughty hunters were to resolve themselves into a mass meeting to condemn the foes at Washington, equally ravenous and much more dangerous. The members of the board of supervisors reported the number of bridges each had built the past year and the length. Altogether they figured up 1 879 feet long, with 625 piles driven, containing 6,308 feet of lumber. The bridges altogether would make a pretty big bridgo. At the next meeting the Cash for Jjoose Hay. I will buy loose hay at the Northwestern depot, and I want all I can get. 42 H. A. PAINE. by raising a lot of beans one year, was otherwise unknown to the county. When he died he was about 80 years of age A telegram to his nephew, Ed. Seebert, brought him out to the burial. Another nephew answered, " Let the county bury him." The one who camo paid only for the lot and sexton, the county bearing all other expenses. The one who came, however, intimated that Pairchild had property at Mineral Point, Wis., and the supervisors authorized Mr. Matson to see if the expenses of the burial could not be recovered out of it. And this has led to a rather sensational discovery. Archie Hutehinson was a resident at Mineral Point before Fairchild left and at once recalled that a murder was tit the bottom of it, but had never before connected our Kossnth man with the incident. It seems that when about /o vears old Fairchild married a wife about 30 or 35 years old, and coming home one night intoxicated he got down the shot gun and threatened to shoot her. Ono story is that ho was merely crazed by drink. But Dr. Stull, who also comes from that section, says iealousy was at the bottom of it. In any event in the struggle which ensued the gun wont .off and she ..was killed. Fairchild disappeared and was never heard of afterwards, although his nephew undoubtedly knew all the time where he was. He wandered about for two years and then came here. While here at the burial Seebert's chief feeling seemed to be of satisfaction at knowing that it was the same man who was dead. He told while here that Fairchild had buried $20,000 before leaving and that he had found $2,000 and sent it to him here. It is related that Fairchild did at one time get some money from the east, but no one believes that he ever got that amount. He also owned 40 acres of land at Mineral Point, and it is thought had an eighty somewhere else. When Seebert came ho got all tne papers the old man left before anyone else saw them. Fairchild told nobody about his affairs, although it is thought he tried to once at the last minute. All in all it is a curious case. And kinder cranky and laughed at him, When Jim would tell 'em he didn't keer. "Don't make no dlf'or'nce," I've heard him An avtst folks called hlrn 6. Jolly brtek- "It's a tough ol' world, an '11 have 'Its way; 'Taln't worryln me— I've got no kick.' But I knowed better* He's come to me Many's the time heartsick an sore— "I'm tired of the whole outfit," sez he, "They ain't no use ever tryln no more." An then In a crowd he'd peark up smart, An sorter sneer at the deals he'd git— "That? That's nothin! W'y bless your heart, I ain't a worryin a little bit." Jim was onlucky, no use to talk; Folks wondered sometimes at the way he done, But I know w'y ho used to balk An give up suthin he'd Just begun. His back had been bf oke by circumstance. An, allers onlucky, he'd los* his grit; But still he'd laugh-"! ain't had no chance. But I ain't a worryin a little bit." So Jim went a-laughin right down to death, And ho lot go o' life not keerln a darn; "Pardnor," seis he, kinder catchln his breath, As 1 sot watchln, with the night on the turn, "I hain't had much of a deal down here, And I ain't aakln now for a softer sit: I'm jest a letting go, bend lower, d'ye helir? I ain't— worryin now— not— a— little— bit.' -Seattle Post-Intelligencer. __ ____ _ _ J - taith County State Bank CAPITAL ........................... .. .$60,000 Incorporated tinder general laws of Iowa.

The chief building is the handsome bank block which cost $14,000. The O. C. Walker farm of 280 acres, lying three miles east of town, was sold last week to Geo. Urch, a late comer from Illinois, at $30 an acre. It is one of the best farms east of town and Mr. Urch will have a pleasant homo. Dr. Sayers was out south of Britt last week to attend some hogs that had been bitten by a mad dog. They ran about, snapping at everything, frothing at the mouth, and acting like dogs. Some steers also were bitten and had to be killed. The public school opened Monday with 500 pupils, a gain of over 20 from last term. Miss Grace Gilchrist auditor will report the number of yards of dirt moved in grading and the number of rods of ditch made in tho past year. is in Miss Decker's room, otherwise there is no change. Prof. Dixson and several of the teachers attended the state convention in Des Moines and report a profitable time. Marsh Stephens was down from Kossuth's storm center Monday. The whole trouble there last week arose over his crediting a payment on one When J. C. Raymond arrived at Ledyard last week to try the larceny, embezzlement, forgery and conspiracy cases which had upset the usual peace and quiet of that community, he found the combatants willing to lay down their arms, and nothing came of the ruction. It was merely a means of letting off a little steam and furnishing diversion for a day or two. Ledyard has some live citizens and they can get up a good fight when it is needed. Attorneys Clarke and Quarton go to Emmetsburg tomorrow to argue some of the cases left open by Judge Carr at the last term of court. One is a tax title case in which F. E. Smith is trying to defeat a tax title held by Callanan & Sayery. Another case still to be decided is that in which Springfield township is fighting Ledyard on its independent district. The case in which effort is made to hold Mrs, Sawvel for a note given by Mr. Sawvel, is another. 'Squire Raymond was called to Bancroft last week to prosecute a woman for resisting the city marshal. When he arrived and looked at the little woman and big marshal he decided that it was a poor case. So the information was changed to charge illegal assemblage of her and her two boys. P. M. Barslou defended and the justice decided that it was hardly illegal assemblage for her to come to get her husband home, and the case was dismissed. Sheriff Graham has begun suit against the county for $78, as money due him for J. E. McEnroe's services in watching prisoners while in. the jail here. The bills were presented to Potatoes Wanted.

G. C. Stoll of Grant Park, 111., was in Algona last week with the Hamilton Bros., investigating the clay hero with reference to its use for tile. Several barrels were secured at various places and a thorough trial will be given it by Mr. Stoll, who is an expert. The best came from the bank along the Milwaukee railroad track where the old Johnson elevator stood and an effort is being made to secure this place as a site for the new factory. An application has been made to tho company and if it is granted a big factory will go in in the early spring. The God of the Gypsies. The gypsies know nothing whatever of heaven or a future state of rest for the righteous dead, their vocabulary having no word that conforms with otir words "paradise," "heaven," "beautiful city," etc. They know of a god which they call "devel" and of a devil called "beng." "Beng" has a home, or an abiding place, called "bengipe," but their "devel," or god, "hath not where to lay his head, 1 ' and is only recognized as a wandering spirit floating about in the upper regions of the air. They have a mortal terror of both "beng" and "devel," but this does not prevent them from cursing both god and devil whenever anything goes wrong. They believe "beng" to be much superior,, to. the "devel," not only in point of physical proportions, but in his powers over the world and the human race, as well as in his greater intellectuality, "Devel" can be exorcised with pure cold water, but "beng" will take nothing short of brandy or wine. Edgar Wakeman and other experts in gypsy lore believe that they were the original fire worshipers, and cito many facts to prove the correctness of their conclusions.—St. Louis Republic. A Miser's tast Wish. A Greek died in the small town of Caracal, having always lived on the alms of his compatriots. Before dying he made his wife swear that she would bury him in the dirty old overcoat which he wore every day. The poor woman had to ask the Greeks of Caracal to help her to provide the costa of the funeral. A good hearted Greek went to see her in her affliction, and pointing to the body said he would give her a better coat to bury the man in. Then she told him of the dead man's last wish. The Greek, whose suspicions were awakened, told her that she should certainly not part with the body before she had well examined tho coat, for there must bo some particular reason for tho request. The widow unpicked the lining of the overcoat and found 85,000 francs in bank notes which the iniser wished to take into the grave with him.—Vienna Cor. London News.

Many a poor young man seeks a government clerkship in order that he may earn his support while he is studying his profession. He is playing with fire. He is taking up as a staff that which is likely to become necessary to him as a crutch. Ho is in danger of discovering, when his profession is learned, that he has not the moral courage to drop his government stipend. It would have been infinitely better—it might have been his making—if ho had toiled for scantier dollars in a manlier way.—Harper's Weekly. Tho Shape of Sea Fowls' Eggs. Sea fowls' eggs have one remarkable peculiarity. They are nearly conical in form, broad at the base and sharp at the point, so that they will only roll in a circle. They are laid on the bare ledges of high rocks, from which they would almost surely roll off save for this happy provision of nature.—Boston Transcript. A Sharp Bargain.
