F. H. VESPEH, Agent. THE LOCAL FIELD. Keys to tho old postofflce boxes will be redeemed at the new postofflce just as soon as the time can be spared. Miss Jennie Walters underwent a painful operation hist week as a result of spraining her ankle in such a manner as to fracture the bone. She is getting along nicely. Frank Nicoulin was in Minnesotalast week and sold two farms to actual settlers. He is pushing his Minnesota lands with vigor, and will locate many new settlers there the coming summer. Judge Quarton will convene court here next Monday, with a calendar of about 300 cases. Not so many trial notices have been filed as usual, but the term is likely to consume a couple of weeks. C. F. Calkins has gone to Wheaton, Minn., where he will act as agent for S. W. Frasier for the sale of Minnesota lands. Mr. Calkins is a No. 1 land man, and Mr. Frasier is fortunate in securing his services. The preliminary hearing in the case of Albert Rahm was held before 'Squire Taylor yesterday, and Rahrn was held to'the'grand 'jury in $1,000 bonds. County Attorney Raymond prosecuted and F. M. Curtiss appeared for Rahm. Report has it that V. S. Ellis has bought the Swea City Herald and will take possession at once. Mr. and Mrs. Ellis were the founders of the Herald, and made It a good paper. We are glad to see them back in the field of journalism in Kossuth. Miss Dodd moved her book store and news stand with the new postofflce, as a matter of course. She has become a fixture with the postofflce in Algona, and it would hardly seem like a post- office without her. Her connection with it dates back sixteen years. The old postofflce outfit was taken down Monday and Bro. Starr has it stored in the north room of his office building. Inquiry failed to elicit whether or not Bro. Starr expects to start a postofflce of his own, but the presumption is that he has a postofflce outfit for sale. The Clear Lake Mirror has an item that will possess local interest: C. H. Slagle, day operator at the Milwaukee depot, left Tuesday for Emmetsburg to be gone a week or so. Dame Rumor has it that he will return with a bride and that he has rented the McLaughlin house on Fourth street. Dr. Tribon's purchase of the J. W. Hay lots means, according to a well- founded rumo'r, the erection of a $2,000 residence thereon at an early day. It is in one of the handsomest residence portions of the city, and the doctor's improvement will doubtless be in keeping with its surroundings. A. M. Coan has taken the agency for the Household sewing machine and will soon have a stock of those popular machines on hand. The company has had no active agent here for some time, and is to be -congratulated on having secured in Mr. Coan a reliable and pushing man to represent their interests in this section. People who travel on the Northwestern road cannot fail to notice the new town of Galbraith, four miles south of Iryington. Geo. L. Galbraith is the proprietor, and he has already erected a double-front two-etory building for Store purposes, and is corresponding with parties who want to put in an elevator. A good deal of hay is being shipped from that point already, and a depot building will be one of tho ad- ditionssoon needed. Galbraith is bound to grow into at least a good trading point, and perhaps a city. Who can tall? Kossuth's reputation us a winter resort was slightly upset by the storm which struck us Friday night. It brought us the first real blizzard of the season find three or four inches of snow. But it was all over by Sunday evening, and Monday's sunshine made everybody forget that we had had a storm. We forget history, anyway. Inspection of Company F will come soon, and we have no doubt our boys will present a fine appearance and a good record. Capt. Foster's removal to Ames in tikes necessary the election of a new captain, which, however, will not take place until after inspection. No hint is given as to who may be placed at the head of the company. Preparations for a largely increased machinery business the coming season make added room necessary at the Burt Wigwam, and a 60-foot addition is already under way. The Wigwam will carry a much larger stock at Burt this year thnn last. The business there last year was gratifying, and will surely be 'larger the coming season, Acetylene plants for lighting purposes have been ordered by S. D. Patterson & Son, the Kraft Clothing Co., Brownell & Allred, and Jno. Goeders. They give a nice light, but a test will have to be made to show their relative merits compared with the gasoline lights. It seems to be agreed that either is cheaper than electric lights. Bro. Hinchon retired on Sunday as postmaster, and will re-enter active newspaper work on the Courier. He expressed his genuine relief at being relieved from the cares of the office. Bro. Starr gave expression to the same feeling four years ago, from which the inference can be drawn that the life.of the average " Nasby" is not one continuous May day. The military boys danced to the music of the Sterzbach-Cady orchestra at the court house Monday evening. It was their annual ball and was attended by about 70 couples. All reports agree that it was the most enjoyable, party they haye ever given. Dancers have come to look forward to the annual military ball as one of the events of the social season. The Algona W. C. T. U. organized a Union at Irvington, Feb. 17. Officers are, Mrs. Mathers, president; Mrs. Dunwoodie, secretary; Mrs. Wright, treasurer. The meeting was conducted by the Algonians, and the program was as follows: Devotional exercises, talk by N. Hamilton, talk by Sadie Calkins, talk by Emily C. Dodge, questions and answers, reading of constitution, initiatory service, W. C. T. U, benediction. The order from the department authorizing the removal of the postofflce came Friday, and on Monday morning the first mail was distributed in the new boxes at the new stand. If we are to judge from current comment the new outfit is going to give good satisfaction, particularly after the public becomes accustomed to the innovation of keyless boxes. The greatest difficulty at the outset seems to be that one forgets the combination, a matter which, however, will quickly adjust itself. Last night's annual bean supper of the Grand Army was all that was anticipated. The attendance was larger, if anything, than ever before, and that means the court house hall was packed. The literary exercises were of the usual order. There was disappointment at the failure of Judge Granger and State Commander Evans to be present, but the audience enjoyed addresses by Revs. Day and Bond, and short talks by various comrades. The glee club rendered good music. E. H. Clarke was at Mankato last week as attorney for the defense in the suit for divorce brought by Fred. Paine against his wife. Fred, lives at Lake Crystal and is engaged in the real estate business. As we understand it he has never lived with his wife, and brought the suit on the ground of desertion. The case is set for trial at Mankato in June, and Mr. Clarke was arranging for a defense, which will be made unless the suit is dismissed by plaintiff before that time, a contingency that umy arise. The church building enterprise of the Methdfiist people is taking form rapidly. Tho quarterly conference voted to make tho building committee permanent, consisting of Gardner Cowles, W. C. Danson, F. S. Norton, A. Hutchison, and E. J. Gilmore, and they were authorized to select plans subject to approval of tho official board, and to let contracts subject to approval of tho trustees. It was recommended that the cost should not exceed $18,000 exclusive of the orgivn and carpets. A committee was appointed to try to purchase a sito at Capt. Ingham's park, otherwise tho church will bo built on the present site. The plans on hand, while not accepted, give a basis for figuring which will insure a structure in all points creditable. The present desire and expectation is to build ol Sioux Fulls granite and to arrange the church for auditorium, Sunday school, and social purposes after the most approved and advanced plans of work. This enterprise will be a great improvement to Algonn, and while the subscription is liberal and insures success, the pastor is working hard with his committee to finish the canvass, as a result of which it is honed everyone will aid to the full extent of his ability. THE UPPER DES MOINES knows thht an enterprise of so large a character cannot have too much aid, and the willingness of the church and public warrants the hope of adding a great deal to the building fund before letting contracts. When completed no town in northwest Iowa will have a church edifice to surpass this which will adorn Algonn.

My children got wet coming from school and all were quite sick with colds, cough ing fearfully nights.
