The Spencer Reporter says concerning the succession to Judge Carr: "The best lawyer in the district should be selected for the position, if he would accept it, and if the voters can find out who that man is." Correspondence with Kossuth vvill elicit the desired information. The most important public event to occur this spring is the state declamatory contest which comes May 4. Next to that the local contest April 13 will excite most interest. Algona has some prize winners who will be on the programme, which will appear in full next week.'

Mr. Robert McKy, Mrs. Janet Osborne, Tolef Peisser, Mr. C. P. Rial, Exodus, Kossuth county, Iowa, Mr. E. N. Westler. THE UPPER DES MOINES is warranted in saying that there was no -violation of the state 'law against prize fighting at the fistic arena Friday night in Clarke's hall. The only violation complained of was a breach in the law of contracts. Keefe didn't show up and the 75 who paid $1 each didn't get what they expected. An impression is out that under the new law any town can legalize saloons by a petition signed by 65 per cent, of its voters. The law is that before any tovyn or township can do anything a petition must be signed by 65 per cent, of the voters of the whole, county. Then such towns or townships as have 50 per cent, of their voters on the petition can exempt saloons from the present law. H. S. Dailey was over from Whittemore to help Sheriff Samson dui'ing court and made the acquaintance of one of the sheriff's ponies in a way that he did not expect. The beast decided to go forward in a line that included Dailey and its breast bone came in contact with him in such a manner that he nearly collapsed. No bones were broken, but Dailey could scarcely move next day. Ever since the second escape of Dickson, the forger who was caught up in Washington by W. B. Quarton, there has been dispute about the payment of the costs of that capture. A short time ago Mr. Quarton got the matter settled and received $200 which he had paid out on that trip. The state authorities are very chary of paying extradition expenses when the criminal is not caught and convicted, but in this case the escape was no fault of Mr, Quarton. The Easter services at the Episcopal church were listened to by a good congregation. The offertory amounted to $57. It was the occasion of the first appearance of the surpliced choir, which is to be a permanent organization. The rector, Dr. A. V. Gorrell, is greatly liked by everyone. In the afternoon he gave a dinner, at the "Thorington," to the members of bis choir and a few other friends. Mine Host McMurray proved himself worthy his good reputation, and the guests departed all acknowledging it a very happy Easter. Yesterday afternoon Frank J, Kernan and Miss Anna Ward of Wesley were united in marriage by Rev, Eastman, The bride is daughter of Chandler Ward and one of Wesley's most attractive daughters, while Frank is one of the very finest young men anywhere in Iowa, As director of the county a jricultural society be, has made many acquaintances who hold him in high esteem, He goes to his new farm about a mile and a half from Wesley to locate, where all will wish him and his bride the happiest and most prosperous of lives, Gardner Cowles is in Texas attend' ing to some big mail route lettings, Jn a recent letter to Mayor Call he says: lt Thiscountry has all dried up; nearly all the cattle are dead from starvation; 16,000 hides were marketed here last week and all other stations the same. In many places the air is foul with decaying carcasses and tbe water is polluted. People are all dis? cpuraged. No rain for four years." This is 50 miles from tbe gulf and in one of the best sections of the state. It represents tbe condition everywhere there, One of the best entertainments lately given {n Algona have been the lectures on phrenology by *'Old" Grimes, not be of the song who is dead, but be of early mesmerism and phrenology fame, Mr. Grimes is 87 years old and 60 years ago began as a public mesmerist creating a furor in New York which is remembered, by old New Yorkers nd whl^h jwftrly ende4 i» hl| exterm nation M PJ of wit and wisdom of a kind, and able to make as shrewd a guess at a man's character by looking at him as any yankee that ever lived. One of the features of the April Midland Monthly is B. F. Tillinghast's report of the famous Russian relief movement in Iowa. He gives a very full and graphic description and includes among the incidents the contribution made by the late Mrs. C. B. Hutchins, who wished her funeral to bo inexpensive in order that what was saved should go to the I'elief of the unfortunate. In the next number Mr. Tillinghast is to tell of the distribution of Iowa corn in Russia, and how it was done and how the corn was received. Corn was not known as an article of food in Russia before that, and Iowa sent all corn. But few who have been interviewed by THE UPPER DES MOINES have an idea that a petition can be got in the county with 65 per cent, of the voters on it asking for saloons. It is doubtful whether at an election 65 per cent. would vote for license. And many would vote for it who will not sign their names to a petition to become part of the official record in the auditor's office. It is not likely that an effort will be made to circulate such a petition. If there is not there will be no change from the present law in Kossuth, except that owners of property who do not want a $600 tax assessed to them will not let illegal booze shops get started on it. Myron Scbenck during the past year has bought four full blood Red Polled cows and , on March 22 the first full- blood polled calf ever born in this county saw the light, It is a handsome little specimen of one of the best breeds of cattle yet introduced, and in honor of its arrival it has been named Kossuth. Mr. Scbenck has bought a seven months bull calf weighing 740 pounds, that has not yet been shipped to him. Ho expects to make the Red Polled cattle a standard breed in this section, and to develop a stock farm devoted to them. He will make a success of it for he has the kind of cattle to work with and the energy and business capacity to succeed. A curious find was made a week ago by G. D. Peck in the little creek north f D. Rice's. It was a silver half dollar dated 1815. A year ago Dell Ferguson found an old half dollar at the same place, and before that R. M. Gardner picked up one over 100 years old. The three pieces were found not four feet apart and seem to have belonged to some one who was carrying very old coins. One theory is that this" was money paid to Indians and lost by one of them before the white settlement. It is certain that the money was lost many years ago, for no one in late yeai's has been carrying coins dating back to 1800 or 1815. This find with that of the old traps in the Buffalo gives quite an air of romance to that section of the county, which also has the old Indian battle ground. Saturday evening a petition will be presented to the city council signed by 117 farmers of Union township asking for the road proposed to be out under the Milwaukee track east of the water mill, All the people north of the town seem to want this road, which by an easy grade shortens their distance to the depots and saves them crossing the track at a dangerous place, The council a few weeks ago accepted the proposition provided a survey was made and the right-of-way furnished free of cost. This is little enough to ask of the adjacent property owners. The town is under heavy expense with its water works, and the road will benefit the adjacent property enough to many times pay all costs, even if the expense of grading were assessed to it, _ _ WALL paper, new stock at Galbraith's. ________ CHILDREN'S and men's clothing, We still bave a good stock that we are selling regardless of cost.
