The Baptist ladies' missionary society will meet with Mrs. T. H. Conner on Saturday, March 17, at 2 p. m. Algona loses her Chinaman. He . packed up his effects and Monday morning started for Eagle Grove. Marriage licenses have been issued to H. A. Kingston and Amy Howell, Adolf Anderson and Lena Swanson. Mrs. Jas. Taylor intends to open a millinery department on her return from Chicago. She is in getting stock. Thos. H. Lantry has taken his place as cashier of the Algona State bank and is already at home behind the counter. Charles Jeanson won the bedroom set at the show Saturday night. There is now no reason why he should not get settled down. A small prairie lire burned a stack of hay for Myron Schenck in Union Sunday and nearly caught Geo, Boever's big barn. Mrs. S. D: Hamilton is at Rock Valley on a visit to her son. He talks some of coming to Algona and joining his brothers here. No such mild and genial March weather was ever experienced in this section. Two weeks have now passed that would do for May. C. F. Laage has rented the Peterson blacksmith shop on west State street and is opening up for himself. He is an expert workman and will succeed. Prof. Bartlett has 18 members in his band which will be fully organized this week. They will practice in the old court house and give a concert in May. A Swede boy 12 years old living over at the old brick yard southwest of town was thrown from his horse and broke his arm the other day. Dr. Garfleld fixed him up. A public meeting will be held in the reading room next Friday evening at half past 7 o'clock. " All who have the good of the reading room at heart, are invited to be present. Treasurer Spencer says money is coming in quite rapidly for taxes, as high as 555,000 a day. Mrs. Harwood, Mrs. W. F. Carter's sister, is helping in the office during the rush. The beer brought from Bancroft was condemned Monday and spilled. The Register said last week: " If you don't like it, send it buck. Needn't keep it if it doesn't suit." It suited all right. If any person who did business at the money order department of the post- office, this week, is conscious of having made a mistake in making change, let him call there and discuss the matter. W. W. Jones' new barn in Cresco will be a fine one on a stone basement foundation. It will be 32x00 feet and the excavating is about done. The basement will be for cattle, hay and horses above. Letters are advertised for Hulda Anderson, J. H. Creighton, W. H. Cunie, Ellen Erickson, Birt Gellit, W, E. Johnson, Edd Kamble, Fred Lange, George Miller, Aug. Schultz, Bunyan J. Sloop.. A report was published last week that Mullica and Hackman had rented the foundry and would open it in the spring. They have merely discussed the matter and no definite arrangements have been made. Frank'Nicoulin's exchange last week made a trade by which he comes into possession of a $7,000 stock of dry goods and cloaks which he will put in the Dr. Reed building and sell. He says his advertisement has brought him lots of calls. S. B. Reed has gone to Des Moines and joined a firm in the creamery supply business there. He sold his building and supplies here to Spurbeck & Lambert. Mr. Lambert is expected here this week to consult about enlarging the plant. Wm. Landman of Buffalo Center arrived home Monday from Garrison, Colo., where he has been spending the winter. He eays the elevation there is too high for him, and he could not enjoy life there. However, he comes home in excellent health. J. W. Moore, tjje oldest son of the Moore family who pioneered it up on the Black Cat near M. Riebhofl'e, ran bis hand into the planer at the butter tub factory last week and had two fingers badly clipped. He is the second to get his band caught since the factory opened.

MissMattice, who will be remem- jered by old normal students, and who aught in the public schools, recently won a prize at Los Angeles, Cal., by electing the winning name for a big air being held there. She and another lit on the same name and they divided .he honors and the purse. The well diggers have their tools and iave begun work. They have built a ihed over their engine and dug a hole iome 15 feet down to begin in. The drilling begins today. It will take rom two to four weeks to go 300 feet, iccording to what they have to go hrough, Four men will be at work most of the time. The trial of Miss Toothman as ,eacherin Buffalo township was held resterday, and Supt. Reed has taken •he case under advisement to look up iome law points. He will decide it icon. The Pratt school house was crowded. W. C. Danson appeared for vliss Toothman and A. K. Kennedy for lie complainants. Irvington is to have a co-operative jreamery this spring. The stock was jeing subscribed last week, but we iave not learned who the officers are o be or when the work will begin. The figures for the work of various sreameries the past year is conclusive ,s to their benefit. Irvington is a good >oint for one and it will be insured a )ig patronage. Atamo3tingof the Trotting Park xssociation last Saturday J. W. Wads- vorth and Chas. Smith were appointed committee to meet with like committees from Eagle Grove and other ;owns to arrange for a circuit. The neeting has not been called but will be f enough towns enter. If a circuit is ormed a good meeting may be expected at Algona this summer. Dr. Morse expects Dr. Davies of Stnmetsburg over today or tomorrow ,o assist him in an operation on R. J. Hunt, who is troubled with inflamma- ;ion of the vermiform appendix. Several cases of this singular malady ire reported over the state. It comes rom a seed of some kind getting caught in the little pocket which >nds part of the intestines. The largest audience ever in the Congregational church was out last svening to hear Blind Boone. It was ,he biggest crowd that has gathered n Algona in some time. Boone had a rery fine piano and showed great im- irovement since his last visit. The ioncert was good throughout, and some of his piano solos were remarkably fine. The audience applauded enthusiast- cally and went away well pleased. Boone is sure of a warm reception in Algona. A. H. and Will Naudain wore called to Monroe, Jasper county, Saturday by telegnim to attend .the funeral of their step-mother. Mrs. Naudain had been in invalid for seven years beginning with % paralytic stroke. She was 54 years jf nge and leaves the three boys who •eside here. A. H. Naudain returned ,'esterday but Will stays with his ather who is unwell, but who will •ecover. The boys all went home last all to see their parents. Mrs. Nau- lain wns an excellent woman and her leath is mourned in the community where she lived. THE UPPER DES MOINES is indirectly in receipt of a letter from Consul Hanna, in which with other ihings he says he expects to be home n Iowa soon and is happy at the ,hought of coming. He expects his successor in a few days, and will then remain with him about two weeks to put him onto the ropes, after which he ind Mrs. Hanna will sail for home. He has enjoyed his experience abroad and has no doubt been benefitted by it. 'onsul Hanna's many friends will give tiiin a warm welcome to the land of the free and the home of the brave. S. W. Johnson of Des Moines and N. J. Skinner will submit a proposition to the city council to put in electric lights. They will ask a franchise and a contract for lighting the streets, and would like a site near the water works and a contract to furnish the power for the water works. They looked Algona over last week and then investigated the plants at Webster City, Fort Dodge, and Manson. If they put in a plant they expect to use meters and charge a cent an hour for a 10 candle power light, getting paid for the actual light used. Algona should get electric lights this season, and the plan proposed will no doubt receive attention at the next council meeting. Another of the early comers is added to the list of the dead this week. Mrs. Elizabeth A. Taylor died yesterday at her home with her son Joel, and will be buried today from the Methodist church at 2 o'clock. Mrs. Tayloi would have been 87 years old July 22. She came to Algona with her sons in 1866, was known in earlier years to a wide circle of friends who found in hei a kind, helpful, and earnest woman, Four of her children, Joel, Nyram, Mrs, Jas. Cronan and Mrs, Robt Stephensou have been well known here and all are living but Mrs. Stephenson Mrs. Wilbur of Yuba City, Cal., and Mrs. Davenport of Spokane Falls Wash., also survive her. For severa years Mrs. Taylor has been almosi helpless and her death is a pleasant release from pain. The school election Monday brought out 472 votes, more than have been cast at any preceding one for years There was no issue announced and the contest was apparently one of those spontaneous outbursts of political ac tivity which every once in a while evidence that the American citizen i alive and conscious of his rights ant duties as a voter. Several differen tickets were out combining the name of C. H. Blossom, D. A. Haggard Gardner Cowles, and M, B. Chapin in various ways. Carriages brought in the voters and at 7 o'clock when th count began it was doubtful who ha< won. An hour later the result was announced, Blossom 284, Haggard 264 Cowles 230, and Chapin 142. Messrs Blossom and Haggard will be excellen members of the board, which beside them is composed of J. W, Robinson Geo. E. Clarke, W. B. Quarton, and W. H. Jhgbam. afocufftbte. G. A. Bykemfttt, , Jatakill, N. #., says that Dr. King's New Mscovery Js undoubtedly the best cough •emedy; that he has used it in his family or eight years, and it has never failed to do all thas Js claimed for it.

He feels very lopeful over his candidacy for attorney general and is receiving substantial sncouragement from all parts of the tate. There is no better man for the place. C. C. St. Clair went to Marsballtown Saturday evening to take a situation in the bank there while the cashier is confined at home by sickness.

They will change the course of study somewhat to make it conform to the wants of those expecting to teach. In the second week in July they will hold a five-weeks summer term for teachers. They have ample financial backing and with the school well on its feet cannot fail to succeed. Prof. Chaft'ee's plans are not definitely settled. He has made many Mends in Algona while with the school, and has in spite of the financial depression built up a strong school. The attendance is over 100 at the present time.
