Regular meeting of tho Grand Army post tonight. The county fair directors meet Saturday, Marcli 3. Corwith schools are closed on account of diphtheria. Algona should be on guard. The big blizzard elsewhere was pleasant snowstorm hereabouts. The weather is ideal again. An oyster supper will be given at the home of Mrs. J. B. Robison of Irvihgton this evening. T. M. Whitman started Monday on a trip which he expects will extend till July, fixing up mail routes for Call & Covvles. W. F. Carter is having a kind of spring clearing sale and makes some attractive prices this week. Look them over. The Scammon company come from Sioux City to Algona and go to Mankato. They are first class and should have a full house. It is said Gov. Jackson will announce appointments today. Then we shall know whether Mr. Smith is in it for fish commissioner. W. H. Reed, who sold his home in the southwest part of town to his father, has bought in the north part and will build in the spring. The new vapor engine is up and this issue of THE UPPER DES MOINES is printed by it. It is a simple and neat contrivance, the best little motor made. S. S. Sessions is up from Des Moines today talking on normal schools. It is ' possible that something is going to be done, and he wants Algona in the race. Frank Nicoulin was down at Carroll Monday letting a mail route on his own account. He has been bidding on mail routes lately and has several in his charge. The soldier boys have invited Ex- President Harrison and Bishop Newman to come and lecture. The latter will be able to after his return from England. Deputy Revenue Collector Smith came in from Webster City Monday morning. He has had five men pulled by the marshal since he began. None pf them were from Kossuth. Marriage licenses have been issued to Daniel Gallagher and Katie Klenk, John Weimer and Lissalo Studer, Albert Peffer and Lucy Blerbaum, Godard Sauftner and Elizabeth Swartz. Freeman Ash, Jr. of Wesley has been appointed to a position in the penitentiary at Anamosa under Warden Madden, and will go soon. Mr. Sessions secured the place for him. Letters are advertised for F. W. Brooks, C. A, Clark, Geo. Deforde, Hannah Donahue, Mary Eisenbart, Jno. Getereth, W. S. Hazard, Jr. F. W. Kohn, A. M. Little, Sanil Squires, M. L. Weinberg. J. W. WadsWOrth traded his trotting stallion, Princeptor, to John Fields last week for a quarter section of Dakota land and John took the horse Friday. Princeptor is a good horse and has left some good colts in Kossuth. The play to be given next Tuesday evening "The Burglar" is by one of the best play writers of the country. The company are highly spoken of and a pleasant evening is insured. Seats are on sale at the usual prices. The bill providing that costs shall be charged to the defendants who refuse to quitclaim after they have put clouds on land titles went through the house with only two dissenting votes. It was an early victory for Mr. Sessions. To-day is St. Valentino's day. How it originated no one seems to know or what it signifies, although numerous theories are given every year. It has come to be celebrated chiefly with comic pictures in which the editor occasionally figures. H. J. Wilson was over Inst week getting everything arranged for supplying the Algona office. Full announcement is made in tho advertising columns. Hurry siiys that he is 2,000 barrels behind orders and can not meet the demand for flour. The cemetary association mot Saturday and found itself with over JjSOO on hand. There have boon 43 burials tho past year, five from abroad. The old officers were re-elected, C. D. Pettibone, president; Dr. Sheets, secretary; W. H. Ingham, treasurer. Last week a mortgage on the home of Mrs. Mary Schichtl of $140 was paid off by a subscription raised among the benevolent people of town. It was a great benefit to her, cost the donors but little, and blessed both. Mrs. Schichtl expresses her heartfelt thanks to all. The following men have been drawn as grand jurors for the coming year: J. M. Walker, Thos Hanna, A. N. Leonard, W. W. Raney, C. Ward, John W. Neieler, D. H. Hutchins, and Albert Ogren. It is a first class grand iury, and will attend to the county's interests. Wm. Wilder boarded at Burt till he was $16 behind and went away forgetting to pay the bill. Sheriff Samson went down Friday to Greene, Butler county, and met Mr. Wilder, who paid the $16 and costs, in all $35. He will attend to his board bills better in the future. The Hobart creamery is 'haying' a }}ttt« tfowble with the, rollers in i mill. It has put in a feed milt tha grinds about 40 bushels an' hour, ant has been having all it could do. The company expect to make as much from the mill as from the creamery as soon as it is in good order again. Owners of slot machines will be in terested in this item from Fort Dodge Judge Weaver of the District Court in charging the grand jury, gave them special instructions to indict the owners of the slot machines which are in common use by cigar dealers, pronouncing them a gambling device. Elmer Single passed examination on South Dakota postofflcos last week, making 99.75 per cent. He threw 700 cards in 18 minutes, or 43 cards pei minute—one for every one and one-halJ seconds. Mr. Slagle is an adept in the railway mail service and is on one ol the liveliest runs out of the Twin Cities. Revival services begin in the Baptist church next Sunday morning. The state S. S. Missionary Rev. F. N. Eldredge expects to be present next Sunday and help through the week, Rey. C. C. Smith of Mason City will help farther on, and Rev. I. W. Terry of Des Moines later. All are cordially welcome. One of the largest audiences that has yet been odt in Algona at a public reading greeted Prof. Palmer at the Baptist church last Wednesday evening. The society made some $20 above all expenses. Fine music was furnished by our local singers, and Mr. Palmer gave some very entertaining selections. The bean supper next week Thursday will be one of the social events of the season. The relief corps ladies stake their reputations on the quality of the eatibles while the responses to toasts promise to be exceptionally good. Dr. Sheetz responds to "The Day We Celebrate;" Mrs. Horton, "Our Duty;" Rev. Davidson, "Our Allies; and Mrs. Nannie Setchell, " The Boys in Blue." Tho rumored sale of F. S. Stough's shoe store is confirmed. He retains possession for awhile and will sell the stock on his hands at very low prices. After that he expects to enter a new business, but his plans are not yet public. This changes another pioneer store. M. W. Stough opened the business in 1879 and Forrest has been with it ever since. The new men talk of continuing the store. A missionary convention will be held in the Irvington church next Wednesday evening at 7 o'clock. The pastor will preside, and after declamations by ;he children and readings and papers by the young people.and ladies, there will be carefully prepared addresses on iiome and foreign missions by neighboring members and an abundance of rood music will be furnished by home ;alent. A petition was sent by 30 republicans of Ledyard to Mr. Sessions last Friday asking him to assist in modifying the Dresent liquor law. They state that ;he democrats are encouraging leaving ;he law alone in order to gain political idvantage. The Ledyard people should mve suggested what change they 'ecommend. Mr. Sessions was elected on a pledge to oppose local option in any form. County Attorney Raymond received a six page letter from L. L. Colby, the convicted whiskey peddler, last week, n which Colby exhonerates himself in md grammar and worse spelling. !olby says his firm will put up his bond and that he will stand trial in tho dis- :rict court. He speaks wisely as to the ,rjal. He will meet that all right when ,he time comes if he. is in the United States. Sain Zickerfc was turned over by his bondsmen again Friday and was brought before 'Squire Taylor and fined §50 and costs which he paid, in all about §75. He has gone back to Bancroft and is said to be still running his restaurant. If he continues to sell beer he will probably have another early opportunity to contribute. Even in these times a man has to sell a good deal of beer to afford to be mulcted $75 very often, Following is tho petit jury for the March term: Sam Steusey, Z. L. Hoi- man, Frank Benschotef, R. Berring- ham, James Mayne, E. H. Stephens, Arthur Rawson, Thos. Gilbert, Chas. Reinecka, B. F. Wickwire, C. W. Stolto, Jacob Wagner, Jas. Taylor, Wm. Shanor, G. J. Stebbins, Fred Will, E. A. Phelps, K. J. Kleist, J. W. Wheeler, W. Kuhn, A. L. Webster, W. B. Brewster, W. L. Potter and G. M, Parsons, The case of Rahm and Studer against Kossuth county was dismissed at the Emmetsburg term of court Monday, It arose out of the breaking of a bridge over in Prairie under a threshing engine, and was taken to Palo Alto for trial. 'Squire Raymond went over to defend for tho county but Mr. Clarke received a telegram from Mr. Rahm not to go on, and tho matter was dropped. It has been hanging on for u couple of years. The public schools are arranging to observe Flag Day next week Thursday afternoon with a programme which will in part follow Supt. Sabin's out- lino. The opera house company have tendered the room free and Mr. Call heats it and the exercises will bo there. Taken in connection with the programme to bo given by the grand army in the evening this will be the moat notable celebration of Washington's birthday ever given in Algona. E. P. Keith and Grant Benschoter sold their cattle last week to J. F. Lacy at a little over 4J cents a pound. Mr. Keith got $1,250 for his bunch and Mr. Benschoter about the same, although we did not learn his total. These are two of the big stock men of Plum Creek, which is Kossuth's stock township, and such sales as $1,250 in cash at this season help to make the stories about money scarcity hereabouts rather suspicious. P. Kain and W. -H. Conner still have their fat cattle on feed. The court house was filled for the district school entertainment last night and the church society is richer by many dollars. The exercises were similiar to those given in all the old fashioned district school programmes. Mrs. J. E. Stacy was school mistress, recalling memories of the first schools in Kossuth county when she was teacher in earnest. Some twenty others assisted, most of them among the older people. They recited in various classes and concluded with an exhibition with essays, declamations, etc. One of public school teachere remarked aj she 9«t that eb£ ]twp4 scholars were not present. She was afraid the discipline in the old fashioned school Would attract them and that it Was not up to standard. It is definitely settled that Judge Carf will locate in Des Moines. He was down last week and made his arrangements, and it 1 is reported bought a home. _ He expects to get away as soon as his labors on the bench close, He will open an office on his own account and has every assurance of a good practice. We nro sorry to lose the judge but are glad he will stay in Iowa. He is going to bo one of the leaders at the bar, and we look to see him holding higher judicial honors before he dies. L. C. Chandler has taken the local agency for the Iowa Savings and Loan association of Des Moines, and has an advertisement in this issue. This is one of the best companies in the state. The State Register says of it: "This company is one of our staunchest financial institutions, and the statement published is a full and comprehensive one of its standing on Jan. 1, and any school boy of 12 years of age can easily understand its details." Frank Chandler at C. L. Lund's office will also attend to the wants of those interested. THE UPPER DES MOINES can send the Farm and Dairy at 30 cents a year, or $1.80 for the two to its subscribers. It is published at Ames. Iowa, tho seat of the Iowa agricultural college, and the Iowa Dairy school and is the only paper in Iowa having the writing of Prof. Henry C. Wallace of the Iowa dairy school, and Prof. C. F. Curtiss of the Iowa Experiment station in addition to other department editors and able contributors. Kossuth is taking such rank as a dairy county that hundreds of farmers should have this leading paper on dair$ matters. The Spencer News tells over the story of wrongs done by one Price, who was acting as agent for pur Algona Deposit and Loan association, and makes a lot of misstatements about the company. The officers here have repudiated Price, and done everything that could be asked to repair the damage done by him. The News dwells upon the hardship one citizen of Spencer suffered in being promised a loan which according to its rules the company could not make. The officers here, to pacify the man agreed to carry out the promise Price had made, but the Spencer man could not get a clear abstract of title to the property ho wanted to borrow on. The company have acted on business principles and are doing a strict legitimate business. C. R Matson and J. R. Brown had a business altercation yesterday the outcome of which was a bad black eye for Mr. Matson. Brown is arrested and his hearing will come before 'Squire Clarke at 2 o'clock today. Brown is ihe local pugilist who whipped the iraveling show man a couple of weeks ago. He weighs about 250 pounds, irained with Corbett, and is one of the "best men" in tho United States. THE UPPER DES MOINES has no opinion as to the merits of this contest, but in a general way its sympathies go with a itizen who has always had the reputa- ;ion of being peacablo and law abiding, as against a professional pug. Algona an get along very well without prize fighters and blue sky men and the quicker. they hunt other fields the better. THE citizens of Algona and vicinity are again warned to be on the watch or the burglars. The authorities have word from Carroll, Iowa, that they :ook possession of that place night be- bre last and got away with about $1,000 in money, some cigars, and other small articles. There are eight or nine men and three women, All are well dressed and one would take them to be in fair circumstances. Before they left Car- 'oll, A. Q. Scammon, who seems to be iheir leader, admitted that they in;ended to make Algona, and if nothing lappened would reach here the night of the 20th of February, IF you don't think I have sold out all and get prices and bo convinced.
