The closing meeting of the publi lyceuro was well attended. The sui plus funds were turned over to the pub fid'sobpol piano fund, and the president ordered to reopen the lyceum next winter.

This will ie handy for Algona. An effort is being made to get a par- on for John Cirksena, who is in the jenitentiary for forgery. Inasmuch as ie confessed in open court that he orged the papers it is difficult to see low the petitioners can make much of a case of his not being guilty. Rev.

TO HATE ELECTRIC LIGHTS PLANS TO THIS END MATURING, Money is Likely to lie Furnished by Local Parties—Council to Make Thorough Investigation. The Grinnell College students gave an enjoyable concert Saturday evening .0 a big audience. They said it was the largest and most appreciative audience they had had, and in the best opera house. They left a very pleasant impression on the people here and are a very fine company of young people. Algona has two students at Grin- iell, Miss Helen Starr and Frank Teller. Charley Rowe attended last year. J. W. Wadsworth attended the meeting of state fair directors at Des Moines last week. After consultation they submitted a proposal to the Des Moines business men that they would hold a fair this fall if Des Moines would contribute $5,000. This will doubtless be accepted and we will have a state fair. The directors also secured the passage of an important law on the last day. It puts the election of a secretary into the hands of the board of directors. Last Wednesday a young man named Wm. Witte was arrested in Seneca by Deputy McDonald for forgery. He sold a note to Chas. E. Smith at Burt purporting to be signed by two substantial farmers for $175. They both pronounced it a forgery. Witte was W. W. Alcorn's hired man, and now lies in jail on 'Squire Clarke's order to await the grand jury. Other fraudulent transactions of his are turning up. A year ago he secured a suit of clothes of Chrischilles & Herbst in Algona on bogus representations. Dr. Kenefick has a copy of the Skag- uay, Alaska, News. It is only 19 weeks old but is a healthy looking paper. The News says that in Skaguay in "three and a half days, 135 sacks of mail were delivered, or three and a half tons. In this there were 10,000 letters, besides a vast amount of newspaper mail. The cancellation of letters has never been less than 600 daily, so far this month, the highest number of drop letters received in one day being 1,884. The total number of registered letters received for distribution the first 15 days of this month, was 271, while 137 were received for transmission abroad." Algona is to have electric lights. Mayor Chrisohilles expresses the opinion that the council will decide upon a plan at the cifming regular meeting which' will be held on the last Saturday in April. As soon thereafter as practicable the actual work of putting in the plant will begin. Two plans are up for consideration. One is granting a franchise to private parties to put in a full plant. The other is to have local capitalists organize and furnish the money to the city to put in a plant in connection with the city water works. Enough have expressed a willingness to join in the latter enterprise to insure a proposition to the council, and if it is made it will undoubtedly be adopted. If it is not n franchise will be granted. If the city with the aid of alocal company puts in the lights', it will enlarge the city power house, put in boilers adequate to pumping and lighting, and run the lighting plant in connection with the water works. This is the economical method both as regards fuel and help, besides giving the water works the benefit of a new boiler. A capital stock of $7,000 or more will be subscribed and a plant equal to the needs of the town will be installed. The council, whatever is done, intends to make a very thorough invf *,i- gation as to the number of lights nLod ed for street lighting and as to which kind are most satisfactory. When it acts finally Algona will get the best system there is, at the minimum cost. DON'T be persuaded intotakingsome- thingsaid to be just like Rooky Mountain Tea.
