Agent Vesper was a Mason City visitor last Thursday. Wheat seeding began last week. It has been pushed this week. The poatoffice at Trvington has been elevated to be a money order office. Dr. Glasler is booked to build a home this spring and A. L. Peterson also. Perry Wilkins has been quite sick lately. Some fears are felt that he will not recover. Harvey Cook has been appointed postmaster at Hobart. He will be a good official. The Wigwam has been getting the Gilmores a handsome delivery wagon. It is a beauty. O. B. Durdall Is at home in the Cowan brick house. He has fitted it up yery handsomely. The new city well proves to be a success. The oily his two wells, each better than the old one was. Geo. Urch, living east of Algona, fell from a ladder yesterday, breaking his right arm. Dr. Tribon was called. There was a big house out for the "South Before the War" Monday evening. Everybody liked the darkies. The Whittemore fire was watched from Algona Saturday afternoon. It rolled up a big smoke that was plainly vi&ible. Mrs. Ostrum, mother of the tile makers, died last Friday of old age. was past 80 years and had been feeble. T. J. Julian got 20 cents for his butter last week when the Elgin quotations were only 19i. He ships the product of his dairy. Henry Larson, former butter maker at the Algona creamery, was in Algona last week. He is butter maker at Shafer, Minn. The "Real Estate and Farm" is a new paper in Morris, Minn., in which John Grove figures largely. It is a booming sheet. W. E. Bradford says the county seat fight in Hancock is warm, but it looks as though Britt would win out. Britt is making a big effort. Assessor Crammond is getting on with his work, but says there is a great deal to do under the new law. He says being assessor is not holding a sinecure. Marriage licenses have been issued tb A. H. Phillips and Emma O'Brien, Peter Wagner and Anna Sovereigns, Lewis M. Sampson and Sophia B. Markla. Dr. Garfield is gaining rapidly again. He is on the street about as vigorous as ever. THE UPPER DES MOINES expects to see him on a bicycle before the season is over. The crayon lecture was well enjoyed by those 'who heard it. Prof. Little spoke in the school rooms in the afternoon and gave the students some samples of his work. J. R, Dutton of Cresco, who has been very sick in California, is much improved. A letter was received by his son Saturday saying that he will soon be about as well as ever. Clay Clementcornes early next month. Keep an eye on the date. His company opened McVicker's opera house in Chicago the present season. The same company will play here. Some fine pictures will be sold for the benefit of the library book fund at court house hall, Tuesday evening, March 22. Free admission and pictures will be sold at auction without reserve. P. M. Cowan and Miss Ella Walters were married at the Methodist parsonage last Thursday eveningby Rev. Day. THE UPPER DES MOINES wishes " Peach" and his bride a happy and prosperous life. The " South Before the War"_ company objected strongly to coming to Algona when they found they could not switch their cars from one track to the other. How long is Algona going to put up without a " Y"? As soon as spring opens the city should see that its order about the Northwestern hotel is carried out. Having the building out in the street is an eyesore and the earliest opportunity should be improved to get it back. Thirteen out of 60 towns in Iowa between 1,500 and 3,000 in population paid more for their city school teachers than Algona did last year. Eleven paid their principal a higher salary, while 13 have the same salary we do, $1,200. Mrs. Wm. Wagner died Monday of heart disease. She was only 23 years of age and leaves two young children. The funeral was held yesterday, Rev. Buchanan officiating. The Wagners live a mile east of the D. King farm in Irvington. Algona has a branch of the state property owners fire association. J. A. Hamilton, W. P. Jones and John Walker are the board, while O. B. Durdall is director for Kossuth county. An offer of $200 is made for the detection of any firebug. A lot of Emmetsburg 1 toughs came to Whittemore Saturday to have a big time at the fire. Word was sent ahead of them and they were arrested before they had gotten very drunk or had stolen much. One young hoy, said to, belong to a respectable family, was oar* ryiog a pair of brass knuckles, a re- volver and a razor as part of his regular equipment. The lot was kept in jail over night and then sent home. Some stealing is reported, however. The Algona Opera House company received sealed bids, March 10, for the privilege of renting opera glasses in the opera house, and the contract was let to E. G. Bowyer and B. W. Haggard for $60. Dingley & Pugh, who have heretofore had the privilege, made no bid. The new Methodist church may be located on what is known as the Plumley corner, north of Dr. Morse's home. It is very central to Algona now, and will be more so as time goes by, besides being a sightly spot. All the churches at present are very much on one side of town. T. H. Conner has plans drawn for the big new Catholic school building at Bancroft. Father Schemtnel will superintend a six-room building to cost $6,000 or more, and to be one of the handsomest school buildings in the state. It is expected that work will begin this spring. Married, at Algona, March 9, Miss Jennie Montgomery and Mr. Andrew Curtis, Rev. Day officiating. After the ceremony they returned to the home of the bride's sister, Mrs. J. G. Vogen- thaler, where dinner was served. Only the intimate friends of the bride and groom were present. School election passed off very quietly Monday, Forty voles were cast and E. B. Butler received them all. Mr. Butler has been one of the best members of the board Algona has had, and the re-election is a, deserved compliment. E. J. Giltnore was elected treasurer to succeed L. J. Rice. This also is an excellent selection. •A curious mistake landed a young man fresh from the old country over at Hobart. He was billed for Hubbard, but he couldn't speak very plainly and the station man sold his ticket for our western neighbor. He could not talk English and was strapped. C. E. Heise attended to him and got him aboard for his real destination. Mayor Chrischilles states that the city council is not bound by any one proposition to put in electric lights in case a franchise is voted. It will then determine on the number of lights, the location and upon the contractor with whom it will deal. The vote will be on the single question, shall theeouncil contract with anybody for lights? Aiden Benedict, Algona's old-time school teacher, will be here March 30 with his Fabio Romani company. He has been here often before, and the mere mention of his coming will fill the house. Miss Grace Hanter will Intro duce her celebrated fire, serpentine stereopticon and Spanish dances ir which she has no equal on the Arneri can stage. The Algona Klondike company con sists of J. W. Hinchon, Dr. Morse Col. Spencer and his brother, Dr Sayers and Frank Hedrick. It has put up $600 to grub stake Wm. Gardner, a Washington friend of Col. Spencer's and an old miner, who is about ready to start for the gold fields. The Klon- dlkers expect big returns from their investment. Kossuth county has an average of 7.7 months of school each year. There are 47 male teachers and 243 females, males paid $36.47 a month, females paid $32.03. There are 3,667 males of school age, 3,269 females. The total enrollment in school is 5,320. There are 196 school houses valued at $138,152. There are 18 male teachers with first grade certificates, 122 females, 30 males with second grade and 121 females. Four males and two females hold state certificates. Mrs. J. M. Farley kindly showed a party of Algonians through her handsome home at Whittemore Monday. From basement to attic it is complete, as well built and handsome as any in Iowa. Mr. Farley had an eye to good work when he began and the result speaks for a good plan and good supervision. The basement is 10 feet throughout, a home in itself. The plumbing is as fine as there is anywhere. His heating apparatus is perfect, in fact it is an ideal home. He spent about $6,000 on it, which means that no pains were spared. T. H. Conner drew the plans and he may well feel proud of the result. Col. Spencer was called home from the south suddenly by the death of his brother in Washington, who was journal clerk in the senate. He was 58 years old and visited in Algona last summer. He was one of the oldest employes of the senate, having first entered the service in 1862. He was regarded as one of the ablest parliamentarians in the United States. Frank and Mrs. Hedrick left Monday for Rice Lake, Wis., where the burial took place. The mother of the Spencer family was south with the colonel and it was partly on her account that the trip was made. Many friends will regret the sudden death in Washington.

That was so in dayH ot yore, Unt up to rtato 'tis true no more. As time rolls on the fashion changes, When women uso BUCK'S Stoves and Ranges. Mun'B work Is still from sun to sun, At noon a woman's work Is clono. There may not bo much poetry in this, bub there is a grain of truth. The women who are using Buck's stoves and ranges are better armed for their conflict than Unole Sara is. They are made of nothing but the best of material, which insures durability. Their perfect baking qualities please the housewife; their economical use of fuel pleases the husband, and the words of praise from those who u'so them pleases the merchant. What more could any of us want? Any girl under 14 years of ago who cuts out this ad. and brings it to our store will bo given a large package of sweet peas free. c. iisd:. HARDWARE.
