The Catholic ladies will give an oyster supper at Grange hall Saturday evening from 5:30 o'clock till all are served. J. M. Farley of Whittemore bought a handsome Mehlin piano of E. G. Bowyer last week. This is one of the high grade pianos. One of the pleasing events at the normal this week was a very interesting talk before the commercial law class by W. B, Quarton. A man was here from Rock Rapids last week trying to buy H. J. Winkio's hardware store. They all want to get into Algona for some reason. Marriage licenses have been issued to John Sp^ar and Jessie Severiens, E. M. McChane and Attie Lerning, Auton Molla and Gertrude Ochiltz.

Wilson has gained five pounds since going west and is much improved generally. He thought at first of coming home when he heard of the fire but wisely decided not to. Bowman was sentenced last week at Clarion to two years in the penitentiary in the forgery case, on the verdict of guilty brought in by the jury. He will not be sent, however, until the appeal to the supreme court is heard. The John Grove hardware stock has been bought by David and F. L. Boals, who are now in possession. Charlie Witham was going in, but the Boals brothers finally took the business. It is a good store and the boys should do a good business. The school board have ejected Miss Minnie L. Coate of Wauseon, Ohio, to take the high school room in place of Miss Jordan, who has resigned. Miss Coate comes with the best of recommendations having for some time been principal of the schools at Bismark, N. P; N. J. Skinner has one of the Des Moines Duplex typewriters, the newest and best machine yet invented.. It has two sets ol each letter *nd two ke --. -IT ~rx~-, •• **alfHWwl once. It is a great invention and has the inventor and the factory. The trial of the Whittemore bear and whiskey came off Thursday before 'Squire Clarke and it was found guilty on short notice. As a result at the northeast corner of the court house are the fragments of a lot of whiskey jugs, beer and cider kegs. The whole lot seized was spilled out on the frozen ground. Sam Zickert, a Bancroft restaurant keeper, was brought down Saturday before 'Squire Taylor and bound over to meet the grand jury on the charge of selling liquor. He came with a bond already made out and waived examination. His hearing will come at the same time with the saloon men .from Whittemore. Next Wednesday evening Prof. Palmer will give his readings at the Baptist church. He was professor of elocution at the Wisconsin State university a year and then went to Boston where ho perfected his art. He is one of the most accomplished readers on the stage and his entertainment in Algona will be one of the pleasant events of the season. The insurance men are here today to settle for the loss on the Wilson mill, and H. J. Wilson is over from Emmetsburg. The whole policy was $6,000 but not all on the mill. The loss will be heavy at best. Miss Lenette Wilson will continue the business at Algona as usual, supplying the town office from the Emmetsburg mill, The Social Union club will meet Friday evening and a very entertaining programme is promised. J. T, Chris- chilles will have a paper on "Music," Miss Gertrude Clarke will talk about "The Modern Type of American Woman,"and Dr. Kenefick will discuss "The Grip." Vocal solos will be given by Miss Grace Gilohrist, and Dr. A, L, Rist. All are invited. Harry Sheetz and Howard Robinson attended the examination at Fort Dodge and found about a dozen there to get the Annapolis appointment. Prof. Wildes put them through a rigid examination but did not announce the result. That will come some time this week. Ernest Wheelock did not go as he found that defective teeth would beat him in the physical examination. The Methodists are having stirring meetings and Prof. Follonsbee is proving an exceptionally effective revivalist. Three meetings are held a day, a business man's meeting at 9 o'clock in the morning, a general meeting at 2 o'clock, and revival meeting at 7:15. Sunday morning and evening there will be big meetings and at 3 o'clock a mass meeting. Everybody is invited to attend. Geo. M. Bailey has opened a new and desirable institution in Algona. It is un intelligence office. Anybody who wants help, wants to work, wants a load of wood, wants a dray wagon, wants insurance, in fact anything, can get it by leaving his name and order at his office over the Algona State bank. His advertisement tells what he proposes and is worth careful perusal. The LuVerne News has the Algona postoffice disposed of and says: "The Algona postofflco contest has been decided by the appointment of Jas, Taylor, This is a decided change in the pro- gramme, as Mr. Taylor was not understood to be in the race as a candidate. So far as we are able to judge, the appointment is a good one and will give general satisfaction to to the patrons of the office." O'Neil & Getty have sold their lumber yard to F. S. Norton, who comes from Howard, S. D. The deal was made last week and Mr. Howard is now in possession, He is a young man, has had considerable experience in the business, and will be a popular manager. Neither Mr. O'Neil or Mr. Getty have decided what they will do, Mr. Getty came from Minneapolis expecting to make Algona his home and we hope to see him find another business here, and also Mr. O'Neil. County Attorney Raymond went up to Swea City Saturday night and came back Tuesday. While gone he secured the conviction of a whislcey peddler on eight counts and had him fined $400. The man goes as L. L. Colby and represents an Albert Lea house, and has been at the bottom of all the trouble in that locality. He demanded a jury trial and got it in Swea, and got what he was entitled to. Mr. Raymond's aggressive action is putting a stop to illegal selling, is gaining him the credit that he deserves. legislatures. Mr. Smith was chief clerk of the house of representatives in 1860 and also at the special war session in 1861 called by Gov. Kirk wood, when J. E. Blackford was representative. These were two of the most exciting sessions ever held in Iowa. The city council met Saturday evening and discussed the matter of a crossing under the Milwaukee track to the mill. Nothing was done and the matter was laid on the table. Some were opposed to an under crossing where the road is now, while no one advocated changing the road so as to bring it out at the Free Methodist church. In view of the fact that no change is likely to be made at present, it is well to remember that there has been but one accident in nearly 20 years, and that many of the other accidents at crossings reported since that occurred have been out on level country. Those who remember the successful "Deestric School" given some years ago in Algona will be interested in the announcement that a new entertainment of that character is being arranged for Tuesday evening Feb. 13. It will be entitled "The Last Days of the Old District School" and will not be after the stereotyped pattern. Among those enlisted are Mayor Call, Dr. Sheetz, Mr. and Mrs. J. E. Stacey, Mrs. Pettibone, Mrs. A. D. Clarke, and others who know what the old school was, besides which very fine music is promised. The full program will be published next week. One of the incidents of early history was recalled by J. C. Heckart while passing through Irvington. Away back before the war when Irvington had two stores, a saw mill, a public hall, and was a competitor for the county seat, Mr. Heckart was a photographer there. He had a room in the Orcott house and took daguerreotypes some of which are still in existence. When the war broke out he quit photography, and Irvington has never had a gallery since. Irving_ton's last struggle for supremacy was with a brass band in 1867, and for awhile no such musical organization could be found in the United States as flourished there. The Lu Verne News is inconsolable. The Wesley bank has advertised that taxes can be paid there and that is accepted as evidence of a deal with Col. Spencer. Now the fact is that there has never been a time that banks, land agents, and others have not advertised that they would pay taxes for people leaving money with them, and the News is at perfect liberty to begin the business tomorrow. Every bank in the county can advertise to do exactly what the Wesley bank has, and all will get tax receipts when they pay in the money, just as the Wesley bank will. We hope that the News will investigate the treasurer's office sometime and learn how it is managed. The "sparing" match announced for Thursday night would have been the fake here that it is elsewhere on the road but for the fact that Algona has among her business men a boxer who trained with Corbett at one time. A local purse was raised for him and he went on the stage and gave the alleged champion of the show a few lessons in boxing, After a round or two the show man pulled off his gloves and said he had had enough. Our local boxer did not desire any notoriety out of the affair and only boxed for the fun of it. But that he is the cleverest man outside of the ranks of the first class professionals may be readily conceded. From 60 to 80 tickets were sold. home in Iowa it is a good one. Mr. Cowles has spared no expense in making it right, and the society have done their part in fitting it up. J, V, EINOEON GETS IT, This Morning's Register Says He Is Appointed Postmaster. A Washington dispatch this morning includes the name of J. W. Hinchon in the list of postoffice winners. This is undoubtedly authentic and ends the contest. Congratulations are in order. FEESONAL MOVEMENTS. John G. Smith is in Des Moines. Rome Wood worth was out from Chicago on business one da,y last week. J. C. Heckart came up Monday morning to visit his aged parents, who have both been quite sick but are now improving. Miss Cornelia Inglmm attended the editorial meeting at Carroll and went to Iowa City to attend the wedding of a friend there. Dr. Garfield started for Sheldon Saturday on account of Prof. Simpson's illness, but received word that he was better and did not go. Thos. H. Lantry starts today for California. He will go to Kansas' City and meet his brother Barney, and visit him, and then spend a few weeks on the coast. Horace Parsons was up last week to visit Kossuth Mends. He spends most of his time now at Eagle Grove, but has lately been at Belmond. He had not seen that place in some twenty odd years and he says it has changed with the rest of the northern towns, ADJOTJBNED SESSION. The County Board finishes Business Left Over from the Regular, and Allows a Lot of Bills. The county fathers met Monday for the adjourned January session and spent most of the afternoon considering bills. One resolution, however, was adopted for which they are entitled to public gratitude, and that is authorizing the auditor to have a now pump put in the court house well. Considerable other business was done yesterday. THE POOR FARM. J. O.

DOCTORING THE POOR. Dr. Dunlap of Ledyard had the only bid in for the north end district and he was given the contract at $90. Dr. McCormack of Wesley made a bid for the south end, but the board thought the matter had better lie over till the April meeting. Later Dr. Dunlap with his bids. THE BRIDGE PLANK CONTRACT.

An excellent programme is published including addresses by many ol the $fee state on topics A large audience of Miss Safford's old time friends gathered Monday evening for her lecture, and enjoyed hearing her again, She talked on the "Man Who Thinks," which included the woman who thinks, for, as Prof. Eggert used to say, "man embraces woman," and told in a most entertaining way of the struggles the world has seen in reaching the good new times that are upon us. Miss Safford's voice has lost none of its silvery tone and fine modulation, while her physical strength has increased perceptibly in late years. She is lecturing and preaching all the time and building up a strong society in Sioux City. She has not been in Algona for some time and her return was welcomed by all. Ground Feed la the Best. H. J.
