W F. Carter sold his fine chestnut buggy horse in Chicago about two weeks ago and has been advertising since for a pacer. He gets about 40 letters in every mail f^m men who can fit him out with a horse that can beat the record. We judge ^at he expects next summer to have a 2.20 horse in buggy and on ordinary roads. Old friends of Bert. Langdon will be interested in learning that he has in- ceflts. The literary and musical pro- grammes were up to Algona's usual standard, and altogether th< are entitled to great credit, success. A rumor was afloat Saturday that D. S.

Marriage licenses are issued to Henry Claussen and Anna Jergenson Jas Marso and Lena Schreiber, F. J. Chap man and Emma Patterson. Tickets for Miss Safford's lecture are on sale at Miss Dodd's, at 25 cents. All students at the normal and public schools are admitted for 10 cents The Methodist church furnace burned out last week and stoves had to be set for the evening service. A new one has been ordered and will be here this week. The Odd Fellow's invitations to tlieii have Monday instead vented a new door bell which be is now proposing to put on tho market. It is like an electric bell except that it requires no electricity, and it is said to be as near perfect as anything can be. It promises to be a great success. J. R. Thornton informs us that L. E. Murphy, who fixed up the farm north of the poor farm last spring and afterwards sold to Mr. Nynmn, died at Jessup, Jan. 11, leaving a widow and three children. Mr. Murphy was 81 years old and was a pioneer in Iowa. He made many friends in the county while here! all of whom will regret to hear of his death. County Attorney Raymond and Sheriff Samson are supported by all the leaders at Wblttemore in their vigorous enforcement of law and ordei, as they are by the county at large. They propose to keep Kossuth's record clear until the law is changed, if it is, and to prosecute anyone when evidence can be had. In this course they will receive cordial endorsement. About 250 men came in on the south end hunt Monday in^good shape without seeing a wolf. That Purcell creek bottom below Belton's was kicked over and over, but not a varmint was found. Even the stuffed wolf the boys had ar- r^anged to set up in the field did not ap- fees and set Feb.. 16' as the day permanent organization. 1 nere We begin to believe that Addi- 'it.

By organizing they "an secure this and many other advantages, as well as benefit by mutual discussions Who will say in view of this step that our medical brethren cannot dwell together in harmony. The result of the Bowman forgery trial this time is his conviction. Ihe jury found him guilty and an appeal will be taken to tho supreme court. The verdict is thought to be due_to a feefing against the blue sky business he was engaged in rather than to the SvideSce If forgery. Bowman is said to be looking badly_ and his health is failing. This was his first attempt at Sue sky and he is in hard luck as the inventors and originators of the swindle are still about in good health and at liberty. If he ever gets out he will try something else. Mr. Quarton says he is confident that the verdict will be set aside He and Nagle of Clarion are Bowman's attorneys. S S. Sessions has introduced a bill which is of considerable local importance It provides that whenever a pa" ty puL a P cloud upon a land title and fetuses to quitclaim to the owner on request, that he cannot come mto court after suit has been begun to quiet title Auditor Doxsee is completing his report of Kossuth county finances for the information and delectation of the state officials, and while the columns of figures his table discloses are not very entertaining to look at, they still tell a story that the tax payer cannot hut fool an interest in. Probably the most important fact they show is that the total assessment has jumped up over a million dollars the past year. Last year it was $3,555,246 for the county. This year the state equalizing board raised the real estate levy 20 per cent, and our total valuation is $4,818,052. The first effect of this will be a very perceptible swelling of the county funds os the tax levies remain the same. The Effect on Roads. Under this valuation the five mil township tax will amount to $24,090 The three mill county bridge tax wil amount to $14,464. And the othe taxes and expenses connected witl road work will swell what we spend on highways to a big sum. In view of this is it not apparent that tho county should be even more careful than ever in having.its work done on^a plan that promises permanent results? The County Statistics. Tho real estate valuation, after all exemptions have been made, is $3,641,561. The personal property valuation day with S. S. Sessions. dueed the Old Gatch bill hard to get It through.

It is rumored that we are to have another change of express companies in A gona, but it will be nominal merely The story is that the old United States company, which was the pioneer on the Milwaukee line, and which was ousted by the Adams, has now secured its old place again. If it has all the change will amount to here will be a change of name. D. T. Smith will be Sgont as heretofore. The American has the Northwestern line. A. L. Seeley left a memento of pioneer days at this office Saturday. It is ?he end of a pole which was cut by beavers. When Mr. Seeley came to the county in 1855 he found it, and has kepi it ever since. The tree was about 10 inches in diameter when cut and the gnawings of the teeth can still be seen on it It seems now almost incredible that beavers ever inhabited this coun : aer su and file a disclaimer and so get out of paying costs.

There is a good deal of land in Kossuth that has been burdened with clouded titles, and the .owners have been compelled to enter court to clear thn record and pay all the expense.

We recall one residence, that of a physician, what was called a "story and a half" house, where the drift was as high as the peak of the roof and wholly covered the front of tho house, making it necessary to tunnel out from the front door. The drift and tunnel remained all winter.
