Curtiss talked vigorously of municipal corruption, and Dr. Kenefick of the necessity of strict sanitary precautions, while Mayor Chrischilles very entertainingly discussed old world city government. It was a city management program and was very interesting. Sheriff Christensen says that Rahm, who is in for a year at hard labor, should be put on the poor farm. He says he will be responsible for his safety, that Rahm wants to work instead of lie in jail, and that on the farm he can be of use to the county. The suggestion is a good one.

In spite of the incipient blizzard last evening the court room was well filled for the reading room picture sale. A splendid program was given after which D. A. Haggard presented copies of some very high priced drawings, sent to the reading room by the Ladies' Home Journal company at a nominal cost. The bidding was lively and everybody got a picture. The sale will net probably $25, which will go to new books for the library. The Methodist church location will be settled tonight at a specially called quarterly conference. The local committee held meetings Monday and yesterday and have agreed upon a roport. The building proposed will be of stone to cost probably $18,000. It is a copy of one in Sterling, 111., which was visited last week by Roy. Day, E. J. Gilmore, F. S. Norton, and W. C. Danson. They say it is a beautiful structure and one that Algona may well feel proud of. C. L. Davidson, the dead railway commissioner, was a resident of Algona back in 1871 and built the house now owned by Mrs. S. D. Hamilton on Thorington street. He frequently visited here, attending several grand army suppers. He had many friends, and they all sorrow at his untimely death. His last trip to the county was in connection with the crossing stopping place north of Bancroft. Mr. Davidson lived in Algona about two years. The next county teachers' meeting will be held at Whiltemoro April 16. The meeting at Wesley was a big success. Mrs. J. D. Mason, wife of the Congregational pastor, gave a very fine paper on the relation of the community to the school. Prof. Spencer is also highly complimented on his discussion, and A. F. Bacon. About 100 were out in spito of stormy weather. Supt. Van Erdowyk feels much gratified at the encouraging success of these gatherings. Mart. Pierce was down to Algona Monday for the first time in five years. He is now past 78 years old, and came to the county in 1800. Ho is halo and hearty, nil things considered, and his conversation is as spicy and entertaining as it used to bo when he lived over west of Algona. He says the town seems to him to have grown half since he saw it last. He lives up wostofLed- yard and Is spending his declining years pleasantly. Mart, ciime to Iowa in 1854 and his reminiscences would make a readable volume. The court house was well filled for the declamatory contest last Thursday evening, and the audience listened to some excellent declamations. Tho judges were Supt. Van Erdowyk, Rev. Stiles, and Rev. W. H. Schmidt of Burt. Theirmarkings weroon gesture, position, expression, and articulation, 10 being the maximum for each, or 40 as a total.

Archie Hutchinson made a neat little speech in presenting the medals to Miss Carroll and Fred. Clarke. Another contest will be given before long and will be looked forward to with pleasure. In spite of bad weather the Red men had a pleasant celebration last Friday evening. The public exercises were held in Odd Fellows' hall, where A. H. Allen gave the address of welcome. Music by the harp orchestra and a solo by Fred. Fuller preceded the address by Dr. Wiley of Des Moines, which was heartily enjoyed. The banquet was spread in the old postofflco room by the ladies of the Degree of Pocabontas, after which Mrs. Keffer of Des Moines instituted Minne-Waukon council No. 25 of the Degree of Pocahontas and installed the following officers: Mrs. S.

Kraft Clothing Co. "Mf\N WORKS From sun to sun; A woman's work is never done." That was so in days of yore, But up to rtato 'tis true no mcn-e. As time rolls on the fashion changes, Wheu womon use DUCK'S Stoves and Ranges. Man's work Is still from situ to sun, At noon a woman's work Is done. There may not be much poetry in this, but there is a grain of truth. Tho women who are using Buck's stoves and ranges are better armed for their conflict than Uncle Sam is. They aro 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 use them pleases the merchant. What more could any of us want? Any girl under 14 years of age who cuts out this ad. and brings it to our store will be given a large package of sweet peas free. CL H^E. HARDWARE. War! War!
