THE XJPPEB to explain why he was unable to be at the bean supper on the 22d. He says he has been suffering for some time with the prevailing grip, and hoped up to the day of the exercises to be able to be here, but was finally forced to forego the anticipated pleasure. One of the biggest mortgages ever put on record in Kossuth county was filed laet week by Recorder Randall. It is the mortgage of the Northwestern railway, and is an 83-page pamphlet 6x9 inches and contains about 25,000 words. Tt costs $25 to record it, and the consideration is $165,000,000.

"A Gay Bowery Girl" tonight. Col. Spencer is out again and improving rapidly. Everybody praises the Algona orchestra, It is out of sight. There was a hot time in the old town last Saturday night, If current report is to bo relied upon. A lot of dishes used at the bean SUD- per have been left at J. W. Robinson s store. Own'ers can get them by calling. In the local market wheat Is worth 90c: oats, 22c; corn, 20c; barley, 20@30c; hogs, $3.60, and cattle range from $3@ 4.10. A D Barr was kicked on the hand by a horse, Thursday. A bad flesh wound resulted, but it will not prove serious. The Galbralth store is brighter since the cleaning of the wall paper. Leo Peugnet did the job himself and has done it well. W J Studley bought the soda fountain that was in the Gilt Edge cafe and has it in trim for the summer trade in " soft" drinks. At opera house entertainments during the balance of the week the orchestra will begin promptly at 8 and the curtain will rise at 8:15. H. Ricker, near Hobart, had three fingers badly crushed in a corn she!lor last Thursday. Dr. Tribon fixed him up, and he will save them all. J. L. Donahoo was in Minnesota last week and sold three quarter sections of land to settlers. Minnesota lands seem to be in good demand these days. Lewis H. Smith has his acetylene plant in his residence in nice working order and the lights are giving good satisfaction. His is an 18-light plant. Peter Johnson has leased his blacksmith shop and desires to sell or rent the entire plant. His health is poor, and he wants to get into a milder climate. C D. Smith goes to Burt this week to open the new bank. Wo shall miss Charley, and Burt gets a good citizen. He is a son of L. C. Smith, county treasurer. Mrs J. J. Cordingley now acts as stenographer for Wilfred P. Jones at the Wigwam. She is an expert, and was formerly in the employ of Clarke & Cohenour. Boy, son of F. W. Waterhouse, sustained a broken shoulder last week from a bad fall. He is getting along all right, however, and is not confined to the house. Mrs A. W. Blanchard died at Burt last Friday, the funeral being held Sunday. She was a lady of many good qualities, and was highly respected by all who knew her. R. E. Creswell is the new man at the Kraft clothing store. He is an experienced clothing man, and an old acquaintance of Manager Misbaoh. He comes from Davenport. The John Paul lumber company has improvements in sight which, when completed, will give them a new and enlarged office in place of the old one. It has long been needed. Andrew Hanson, C. M. Doxsee's tin- ner is to be back here next mojitn. He has been visiting for six months at his old home in Denmark, and while there has taken a full course of instruction in plumbing. L. J. Rice was Algona's city treasurer and since his removal we have been without that necessary functionary, the council deeming it hardly worth while to appoint a treasurer, since the city election is so near at hand. The Methodist people have an option on the quarter block of ground owned by J. W. Robinson, next east of the Congregational church, at $1,000, and have thirty days in which to decide whether or not they will take it. The Thorington house is being newly papered up stairs and down, and the painters will get a chance at the woodwork as soon as court is over. Landlord MoMurray is bound to keep things looking neat about the Thorington. C. C. Samson last week sold one of his bay driving horses to a Mason City man for $175. Pretty good price, but it is a pretty good horse. It breaks up a well-matched team, but our popular ex-sheriff had more horses than he needed. At the Hodges sale last week in Irvington two-year-old heifers brought $28, four-year-old colts $60, and two- year-old steers $35. Auctioneer Haggard says this is but a sample of the prices he is getting for good stock all the time. Mr. Secor of Forest City has been in Algona a couple Of days exhibiting an acetylene lighting apparatus of his own invention. Its generating system is on an entirely new plan, and seems to work perfectly. He is figuring on putting in some plants here. C M. Hjerleid has taken a position in the office of A. D. Clarke as stenographer and book keeper. He will also assist as extra man in the State bank. Gusta Teiohen, who was formerly in Mr. Clarke's office, is now with the Algona Milling company- All will regret to lose H. L. Kimball He is one of our substantial business men, and we had hoped he was a fixture in Algona. He has, however, exchanged his elevator property for a farm near Hutchins, and he and Mr. Bondfield will exchange places next fall. Judge Granger writes to Dr. McCoy The Courier's item to the effect that the Algona Methodists will limit their expenses to $1,800 for their new church is doubtless an error of the proof reader. The limit is $18,000. Quite a difference. It would be a poor advertisement for Algona to say that the new Methodist church Is to cost but $1,800. The advance agent of the Long dramatic company, playing at the Call opera house all this week, got out some very pretty special invitations lust week, and this week issues his own pro- gra-m every day. The company played last week in Estherville, and the papers there say the people were well pleased with their presentations. • The Harp orchestra assisted the Congregational choir and young people to give a splendid musical entertainment last Thursday evening. Every selection was good, and to specially praise any w6uld be unfair to the rest. The Harp orchestra is one of tho host in'usical organizations In the country. It is a credit as well as a delight to Algona. At the regular monthly meeting of the directors of the First National bank last Friday Chas. A. Palmer was raised to the position of nssistant cashier. He has been with tho bank for a long time, and his promotion is thoroughly deserved. His place will be filled by John C. Clemmer of Monroe, Wis., who arrived yesterday and assumed his duties, Judge Quarton opened court Monday, and the time has thus far been occupied in the hearing of equity cases. A jury will be secured this afternoon for the trial of the first jury case. The grand jury began its work yesterday. They will in all probability return an indictment against Albert Rahm in the Sexton shooting case, and his trial is expected at the present term A Klondike Company lii Algotm Will Furnish the Money for Prospecting Purposes. We presume it is not very generally known, because it has not been advertised, that Algona has a Klondike company of its own. It consists of five gentlemen, whose names we shall not make public for the present, for reasons which ought to be apparent. They have been making arrangements for some time looking to the development of Klondike properties and prospecting for new ones, and these plans are now so nearly perfected that they feel it is a sure thing, at least so far as the effort is concerned. What the results may be is a problem that no man can foretell. Their plan includes the " grub-staking" of a practical miner— not a resident of Algona— who has already been in the Klondike region, and who knows where the best chances are likely to exist. This man will do all the work and suffer all the hardships as an offset to the cash furnished, and will divide the spoils with his backers. We hope they may get rich returns from their investment. The business of prospecting is probably the biggest lottery in the world, but the amount of money this company is investing will not break any one of its members, and it may bring'them untold millions. At any rate they estimate It is worth a trial. warn The oldest implement house in Northern Iowa, is now ready for the 1898 trade. A great many carloads of the latest and best farm machinery have just been received. Among the goods to be had at THE WIGWAM this year are the John Deere Plows, Deere & Manson planters and seeders, Selby, Starr & Co.'s seeders and harrows, J. I.

A FEW settings of White Plymouth Rock eggs for sale. t4 JOHN C. PATTERSON. Fully Warranted The cannon at the cemetery has been the object of many visitors since its arrival. It is a five-ton, eight-inch Columbiad, and was secured for the Grand Army post by Dr. McCoy, through Senator Allison. Architect Conner is preparing plans for a pedestal upon which to mount it, to be built of stone and located on the soldiers'lot. It is a monster field piece and was made in 1854. Mayor Chrischilles, with the aid of Prof. Lilly, has prepared the copy for a pamphlet, which will make upward of 100 pages when printed, and includes the history of the city government from the time of Algona's incorporation in 1872, besides all the ordinances now in force. It is to be issued at an early day, and will prove a valuable document for every resident to have. The work involved in its preparation was no small matter. John Grove was down from Morris, Minn., last week. He has bought a complete printing outfit, which he is using at Morris in the publication of a monthly paper advertising his land business in that section. He intimates a satisfactory trade in land so far, with better prospects ahead. He remarked, incidentally, that several people from that locality wore going to Klondike in the spring, the immediate cause of the excitement being the return of one of their citizens with a pocket full of nuggets and several thousand dollars in drafts, the result of his first Klondike trip. The Long dramatic company began a week's engagement at Call opora house Monday evening, with "The Middleman," to an audience which filled every seat in the house. The company is fully up to the standard of dramatic organizations with which Algona is usually favored, and their work both Monday and last evening left a favorable impression. The specialty work is good and the moving pictures proved a source of delight. Last night they gave "The Heart of Nature," the stage settings and dialogue reminding one of " Shore Acres," given here not long ago. The company Is all right. The Supreme Court of Honor was organized Monday evening with a membership of 54. Mr. C. A Weaver o Webster City secured this big list of members, and together with Deputy Stephenson conferred the degree work. The officers elected are: Chancellor, R R. Warren; vice chancellor, G. C. Hudson; past chancellor, W. G. Forde; recorder, Chas. Nolte; treasurer, W. E. Naudain; chaplain, W. C. Danson; conductor, Albert Reed; guard, J. L. Moore; sentinel, F.

Last January I was taken with a severe attack of Grippe, which for weeks kept me In constant torment. Every bone In my body ached; every muscle was sore, and my head seemed bursting with pain. I employed the best medical skill I knew of but could get only temporary relief. A friend finally brought me a bottle Orion's Russian Grippe Cure and It was simply miraculous now it helped me from the start.
