The state superintendent has prepared a programme. Charlie Smith is now assistant cashier of the First National bank. He is an expert bookkeeper and has earned his promotion. Sam Wing left his washee washee yesterday and repaired to Eagle Grove, where wjth other celestials he is celebrating the Chinese New Year. Henry Weaver has captured between 40 and 50 mink this winter. Mink skins are worth about $1 now. In pioneer days they were worth from $5 to $15. Miss Coate, the new high school teacher, came last Wednesday and began work a.t once. She is very highly spoken of by all during her first week. Chas. Laage has introduced a pair of fancy bred chickens from Knoxville. They are called Red Caps and are very handsome, He will breed a flock x>f them. N J. Skinner has dissolved partnership with his brother, Geo. W. of Bancroft. He takes the Algona business, while his brother remains up north. Melzar Haggard met Geo. Andrews on the train going south one day last week. He says the opera company is on the road and doing a good business. They want to come to Algona again in April. The, Ramsay postofflce and Levi Good, the po_stmaster, wentout together. It was not till he got a petition to have himself relieved that the department acted, and then they discbntinued the office. The sinew ""'"< are to give "The Wolf is c" ^ill" tonight at the PalmeP reading have Secured a revised version of that famous song suited to the reoent Occurrences in Kossuth. All the Wolf hunters should turn out and hear it. L, C. Chandler is back from ten weeks'stay at Des Moines having his eyes doctored. When he left he could hardly see to get about on the streets. Now he does everything but read, and is improving. The Methodist church Sunday evening would not hold the people and some went away. Prof. Follansbee said the only way out of the difficulty he could see was to tear this one down and build larger. The last days of the old "district school," next Tuesday evening, proni 1 ises to be a very entertaining affair. The programme will be given at the court house. A lf,rge number of pretty old scholars are down for parts. Today's Poster gays that S S. Sessions has introduced two bills regulating nvretgtt insurance companies.

Last week one of the bondsmen o Sam. Zickert, the Bancroft booze die penser, began to suspect that Sam. wa planning to leave this section befori visiting the grand jury, and came down accordingly and withdrew his nam< from the bond. Yesterday Sheriff Sam son went to Bancroft to secure Sam. or have him file a new bond. In a recent letter Dr. Geo. W. In gham says: "Arthur Tibbetts, Dr Forbush's old-titiie clerk, is ranching 12 miles south of Olympia. He has lived there some two years after hav ing lived in Australia at Melbourne six years, and for shorter periods at Ypko hatna, Japan, and in China." He is t son of O. C. Tibbetts of Fenton town ship. The bill to allow small towns to issue bonds for water works, etc., was reported unfavorably by the legislative committee it was before. The reason given is that towns can now issue' warrants for such purposes and then bone their debt, and that there is no need o a new statute. Representative Ses sions made a strong fight to get the bill through. Next Monday evening at the Strang school house the people of Cresco, Lotts Creek and Union townships arc to meet to organize a society for tnutua 1 protection against stock thieves. The numerous thefts of hogs, poultry, etc., have made such a society desirable. This society takes in about the right territory for a wolf hunt, and is likely to bag more game. It is after the right kind of wolves. The bill introduced by Mr. Sessions to Imve costs in cases where people, who put clouds upon land titles and refuse to give quit claims, assessed against them, was reported favorably. W. B. Quarton was before the committee and argued for it last week, and Geo. E. Clarke, who drew the bill, was also active in its support. The bill should pass. If it does it will relieve a number of land owners in Kossuth. Wm. Cordingley goes out of the boot and shoe business after 26 years experl ence in Algona. It was back in 1867 that he bought a lot where Dr. Sayers office is for $200 and built .part of the suilding he has since occupied. As ;he town moved east he changed to his present location and added the front to lis present building. He has grown " of business in all these years and will hereafter devote his time to moro enjoyable pursuits. The programme for the Grand Army jean supper at the court house, Feb. 22, consists of an address by Dr. Sheetz, The Day We Celebrate;" by Mrs. rlorton, "Our Duty;" by Rev. Dorward, "Our Allies;" and by Mrs. Nannie Setchell, "The Boys in Blue." Music will be furnished by the glee club, and volunteer stories will be told by lomrades. This will be rendered after he supper. Everything is being done to make this one of the best meetings 'et held by the post. Wm. Hanson, who proposed to come rom Luana for our big hunt, writes a otter lately in which he says: "A ing hunt does not amount to much. You cannot kee'p the men in line so ..hat the wolves will not get through. I have seen it tried. We are coming )ut there in a week or ten days if the veather is not too cold and try' and Hive some sport. Will you try and mvo a place where we can keep a loiien dogs. I think we can get some game if it is plenty and there is no >oisonout," Harry Moore received a letter from !ongressman Dolliver Monday morning innouncing that he won at the Fort )odge examination, and that he should eport at Annapolis about May 15 for nal examination. Dr. Sheetz has vritten to find out if Harry cannot go o some nearer point for a physical ex- mination, before he goes to Annapo- 1s,. Harry's success in a sharp exam- nation is a great credit to him, and if TO passes, the physical test he will pend four years in prepanng to help maintain Uncle Sam's supremacy on the ilgh seas, A number of townships ai'o having ebates and lyceunis this winter. A rood thing for any of them would be E. McElroy's series of lectures on his- orv. He has been having growing ucfiences in Algona and been giving a ery interesting as. well as instructive eries. We. have no doubt that any of ur neighboring town! or townships ould secure them at what would be mall cost to each attendant, and there s nothing they could do better than to pend one evening a week with him in laming of the wonders of the past. District number one in Buffalo town- hip has been having a school teacher trouble that reads like pioneer times. Miss Elsie Toothman of Burt is the teacher and one thing and another haye occasioned a feeling that led to a trial before the township directors last week. A, K. Kennedy of We'siey represented those against the teacher, and W. C. Danson appealed for Miss Toothman. . The boarA by a vote of four to three decided against the teacher, and the cftse will be appealed to Supt. ReecU Until the case is settled comment on it would be out of place. With t^ 'Republican stuffed on the $l,^50,pol3toffice plum for four years and the Copier about to be stuffed on the sanje'imum for the next four, it has be- tioovea THE UPPER DES Homes to clcfsb'mething to keep even. It has ac"' ' l 'ingly invested in, a new vapor le which will be up in a few 'Says which is about as handsome 'motor as is now made. It electricity and rune with, gawrfine gas, and can be put at full Bpeeti In a minute and stopped as quickly, Jl will enable us to attend to the newspaper business more efficiently than ;ew? after it x is in, and " we are here f» 'thatpurpose." Last week after tfofe Stem about the rumors as to the whetea'bouts of Julius Pletb, had been p^llsjied, a letter was received by N. & Skipner from Mr. Pletb, dated fegl&fte, 111, In it he refers to the reports 'thtit have been in circulation bete/about "his having gone to Denmwrtf 'Btfftjve'ify vigorously do- to mssfc 'ill feet and able is '.6bJi|ittQBs. As we '' a genial possible from our wishes to injure his standing in any way if he is really tr> iflg to do the fair thing. The social union programme las' Thursday evening was one of the best yet given, Dr. Kenefick said that people who simply sneeze at the grip make a great mistake. He gave a history o: that disease and some good advice about preventing it. Miss Gertrude Clarke very entertainingly told o some of the distinguishing traits of the modern American woman. J, T, Chrischtlles, in one of the best papers oh music ever read in Algona, or anywhere else for that matter, entertained and delighted the large audience. The meeting opened with a vocal solo by Miss Grace Gilchrist, which was very fine, and closed with one by Dr. A. L. Rtst, whose singing is always enjoyed. It seems that the 24 people who came from Bancroft last week Tuesday night to attend the dedication of the Odd Fellows'hall had to sit'in the Northwestern depot and see the special they expected to ride homo on goby without stopping. The conductor had orders to "carry passengers from Eagle Grove to Bancroft." This he interpreted as meaning that he should not stop at Intermediate points, and accordingly he went through Algona at good speed. The north bound people had already waited till towards morning, and sat the night out. They have now presented a modest claim of $3 each for the damages they suffered and ought to be paid without any dispute. The grand army and relief corps gathered in force last evening at their hall the occasion being the golden wedding of Mr. and Mrs A. M. Johnson. After visiting and enjoying a social time Dr. McCoy for those assembled presented Mr. Johnson with a gold headed cane, and Mrs. Nannie Setchell presented Mrs. Johnson with gold bowed spectacles and a gold pin, both making appropriate speeches. Mr. Johnson rallied sufficiently to respond, but Mrs. Johnson expressed her thanks later to the members personally. The worthy couple, who have thus reached one of the exceptional milestones of life, came to Kossuth in 1865, when he came from the war. They have had the respect and esteem of everybody, have reared a well-known and respected family, and are enjoying in old age of peace and good health. Way they pass many more happy years together is the wish of all their friends. Now that the telephone patents have expired Algona has gone into the business with a device of her own. Dr. arfield has invented a telephone which he makes himself, using a mag- let to secure a current, and which for 'our or five miles will carry sound fully as well as the electric current machines .uid which is very simple in operation. Se has turned out the woodwork himself and charges the magnets with ap- mratus of his own contriving. Every- ;hing but the call bells is of local make. len Fountain puts up the wires and luts the machines in place, and Algona s likely soon to have an elaborate system. The machines sell at very •easonable prices, and we look to see ihem in demand in our neighboring ;owns. There is no electric battery to >e kept up with them, and when they are once in place they work without any further attention for an indefinite period. Notice of Dissolution. Notice is hereby given that the firm >f Skinner Bros, is this day dissolved >y mutual consent. The business will je continued at Bancroft by G. W. Skinner and at Algona by N. J. Skinner. G. W.

Ifinchon. Me Will Drop Out of Newspaper Work and Become a Veritable Nasby— Bro. Starr's Plans, A euphuism of the spoils system is "plums." A federal appointment is usually referred to as a plum. In the case of the Algona postofflce plum in in the accepted sense is a correct designation. In the first place the salary is $1,700 a year, $500 more than the county officers get. In the next place the money order fees amount to $150 a year, which goes to the postmaster, In the next place $300 is allowed for rent, which actually covers that item. For fuel and lights $58 is allowed, which covers that item. And lastly $38.75 a month is allowed for clerk hire, which covers that item. So the postmaster gets clear $1,850 a year or over $150 a month, and if he has a relative to take the clerk's fee, ho receives over $190 a month. This is properly a "plum" in these days of Grover's reign, and this plum has fallen to Bro. J. W. Hinchon. When he will come into possession is rather indefinite as yet, for the senate has to confirm the appointment and bonds have to be h'led. But the change will likely occur this month. As far as any plans have been made Mr. Hinchon will take the present office and outfit. His daughter will assist him in the management. He says he intends to devote his whole time to the work of he office, and will drop newspaper work altogether. The Courier will be ;urned over to Ike Finnell, who will ;ake entire charge and become editor in chief. , Mr, Starr, who goes out, has likewise made no definite plans but says he will jo back to work- on the Republican. Whether he and Mr. Mayne will both stay is not settled, or what they will do n case either drops out. The change when it occurs will be a considerable >ne for the newspapers, but THE UPPER DES MOINES will pursue the eyen tenor of its way 'whatever happens, sorry to miss Bro. Hinchon's occasional advice .0 republicans, but glad to welcome Bro. Starr back and to see Bro. Finnell promoted. And now that there is no show for .he old settlers, who used to vote the lomocratic ticket in Algona when they md to write their ballots with pen and nk, we congratulate Bro. Hinchon on lis success.

WATEE WQBgB ASP Hates Have Been Materially Lowered in Algon* Since the Waterworks W«re Put »fc— Ttlie Courier Mistaken, Last weefe the Courier commented on an item in the Cor wfth : Crescent and said: "BOorwith had-a$p8tem of waterworks fibe would pffiy^st the same rate <# ifowwance §be dees' ow. They charge their top rates just the same.*' Like so many of the Courier's statements this lacks the substantial element of fact, While on brick and iron clad buildings the fates have not been much changed by the addition of waterworks, the changes on wooden buildings and rows have been marked. Thus THE UPPER DBS MOINES, which was pa,ying four per cent, for insurance, now pays but 2J per cent. In the block west of the Kossuth County bank the old rate was 6 per cent on building and 41 on stock. Now it is 4 pel* cent on buildings and 31 on stock, In block 27 the old rate was 6i on buildings and 4i on stock. Now it is 3i on buildings and 3 on stock. In addition to this change in insurance rates the protection against fire by reason of water-works cannot bo overestimated. Algona is practically insured against a spreading fire with her stand pipe full of water. Notice. Notice is hereby given that by the sale of their business to Fred. S.

Colby, wlio Was Convicted l^flet Week ntSwca City, Escapes ProBa the Constable. L. L. Colby, the whiskey vendor who was captured in Svvea City last week and fined $400, pla.yed it on the constable who had him in charge and is 'at large. The Bancroft Register tells the story: "The constable went to get his team, leaving the prisoner in charge of a former deputy. As Thompson got ready to depart first, Colby concluded to come as'far as Bancroft in 1 his company, which was agreed to by the constable. They came several miles together when Colby suid he guessed he would drop out and wait for the constable, and come on in with him, He got out and waited in the road until Thompson wns out of range, and then scooted across the fields to some farmer's place and hired the swain to take him to Fairmont, from where he took the 8 o'clock passenger for Albert Lea." Afterwards the Albert Lea house sent down to put up his bond of $600. An appeal has been taken to the district court. If Colby stays away the county" ian afford to forego his fine. If he shows'up he will be attended to in the best style Mr. Raymond is capable of. A Conspicuous I J nck. Carroll Herald: One can't help but 1 notice the lack of constructive ideas or suggestive hints in all this discussion the liquor question. The State Register, Gate City, Sioux City Journal, Hawkeye or scarcely any of the lead- Ing journals define their ideas on the subject. They demand the modification or repeal of the present law, occasionally intimate that they don't like .his or that suggestion, but rarely' suggest what they do want. It is said that ;he legislature should be free_ to act. [t will be free in any case, but it would act more wisely if aided by the best bought in the state, such as directs ihose great newspapers.
