The opera house is under as big a guarantee to secure him as it was to secure Keene a year ago. < Rev. F.

Dr. McCoy asks us to call attention to the requirements for enlistment in the volunteers. All applicants must be between 18 and 45 years of age, physically land mentally sound. There is no expense attending enlistment. The Wesley Reporter says it has at some time answered slanderous attacks on Wesley made in THE UPPER DBS MOINES by its correspondent. That is news to us. When and what did the Reporter get after with such a sharp stick? Rev. Talbot, the Episcopalian rector, is an enthusiast at golf, the great outdoor sport in the east. Golf requires about 80 acres for a field and ought to be suited to this section. If enough can be secured to go in Algona will wht bts held frext TtfetKiftt evening at Odd Fellows* plarltffft at 7:80 Sharp. All members reqweted to be* pf-esent. A local question of much interest is whether the national ' gparfl would be given preference over volunteers in case of war. Gk)v. 9batf saysi " The national guards will be the first Iowa troops put in the field. They are ready for Service, regard themselves as part of the national army of defense and are entitled to precedence over volunteers in case of a call for troops." This is as It should be. The boys have kapt In drill, and should have the honors. Of all the faculties by which individuals have risen in prominence above their fellowtnen this power of concentration was marked. It alone centralizes his powers, and by bringing into action upon one defense after another at length finds himself victorious Oh the summit of the highest citadel and gazing with complacency back over the pitfalls and dangers which he has succeeded tn avoiding. Should you ask htm the cause of his success while so many fell battling around him, he would answer: Central" Iztng my purposes and pushing them forward with a .determined resolution has brought me forward to the goal and to my ideal. Several years ago a number of the largest manufacturers of wire in the United States associated themselves into one company, known as the Consolidated Steel and Wire company, with headquarters at Chicago. They concentrated their entire energies and experience and capital into the manufacture of the Consolidated Woven Wire fence. Concentrating all the good points that could be applied to a fence, eliminating the weak points peculiar to all previous attempts, they produced an article which has no superior and one which speaks for itself wherever Introduced. They placed the sale of this fence with J. A. Hamilton & Co., whose first order was a full car load. The entire car load has been sold in less than one month— before the fencing season has fairly commenced. The second carload is now on the way. If you have not seen this fence J. A. Hamilton & Co. will be more than pleased to show it to you. _ J- A. H. mm mm m $17,006. FOR NEW SCHOOL HOtJSE Atffi SITE, Next Monday to A Special Vote da the £f Meat Ta* Levy. The vote on Issuing bonds for a new school house will be taken Monday at the sheriff's office, polls open from 1 o'clock to 6 o'clock p. m. The board consulted Judge Quarton as to the statute and finding that the law is the same as it was when the special election was held for issuing bonds for the Third ward building, issued the call which was published last week. . The general talk Is in favor of sup* plying school room as fast as it is needed. Issuing bonds distributes the cost, and there is nothing gained by delay* ing a year, Which Is the longest period the schools could go Without being seriously cramped. The board at present are paying 812.60 a month for the Baptist church room and have to move all the school belongings every Wednesday and Friday to clear the place for church services, The room is without blackboards and other school conveniences, water closets, cloak rooms, etc., as all rooms not made for school purposes are, and there is no economy in attempting to put up longer than necessary with such accommodations. An impression prevails with some that school taxes are already high in Algona. Following are the levies for each of the towns in the county, showing that Algona is taxed least of all: Teachers. Oont.

Aleonn Is Trying AH Kluds-Notlitng New About Electric Lights. Nothing has developed new during the week as to electric lights. It is the general impression that local capital will be subscribed for a plant to be put in and managed by the city. The new acetylene plants are running in Goeders,'Kraft's, Brownell's and Patterson's. They give a very pleasant light and are estimated to cost about half a cent an hour. As the lowest estimate on electricity is three quarters of a cent an hour for 16-candle power lights acetylene |is evidently cheaper. In Webster City, where the city has for years had electricity, two acetylene plants have been put in. Durdall is still adding to his list of gasoline patrons. He guarantees his lights not to cost over .one-third of a cent an hour, and they are at least 30- candle power. Eight lights in the postoffice burned $1.25 of gas during March, which is cheaper than kerosene, The gasoline lights have been put into many towns that have electricity. Unless something new is found out to the disadvantage of these gas lights, electricity seems doomed as a commercial light. It is the only light for streets and big halls, LADIES, have your husbands buy you a dress before they go to war with Spain, for it may be the last one.

Over-crowding rooms is bad in every way. It exhausts the teacher, exhausts the supply of fresh air, takes too much time and attention for governing, and leaves too little time for working with each scholar. The best results are reached with an average of not over 35 to the room. The Third ward building has about the right attendance. The main building is over full. The gain in school attendance is about 40 a year. Many think the town is not growing, but the school statistics speak for themselves. A new building with eight rooms will satisfy the demand from eight to ten years. The schools under Prof. Spencer have taken on new life. He has energy, ambition and enthusiasm, and his corps of teachers is as good as any school in Iowa has. Very few will consider it good policy to hamper the work by poor accommodations. Equalizing the cost over a series of years makes it unimportant whether we build this year or next, and we might as well act in time. Everybody endorses the board in leaving out of consideration the old normal building.. It was discarded 15 years ago as a public school building, and it has not improved any with age. Statement by President Butler. To the Editor: I wish to state briefly the position of the school board in the matter of submitting the proposition to bond the Independent district for the purpose of building a new school house. The last weekly bulletin of the public school gives the total enrollment at 714; the number of rooms, including the new room just opened in the classroom of.the Baptist church, 15. This makes the average enrollment for each room a trifle over 47. The high school room is now practically full. Owing to the enlargement of the course, there will be no graduating class this year. There is practically no room for the class which will be promoted to the high school at the close of this year. These considerations furnish all thear- gument necessary to demonstrate that added accommodations are necessary. There are three ways in which the board can meet this demand for additional room; First, by renting. If we adopt this plan it is certain that in less than two years we shall need to occupy at least four rented rooms at a cost for rent and extra janitor service equal to or greater than the Interest on the money required to build a new house. In addition to this is the fact that any rooms the board can rent will be without closet facilities, without blackboards, without proper ventilation, poorly heated and poorly lighted. These facts have had a determining influence with the board as against the proposition to rent. Second, by fixing up the old normal school building. Estimates made by the board indicate that it is very doubt ; ful if $3,000 will put this building in shape to meet the requirements of the district for the next three years. At the end of that time we shall be In the same situation we are in at present, and shall have expended money enough to pay the interest on the cost of a new building for the full time the bonds would have to run. The norma I school building is not in a suitable location for use as a public school building; it Is old, and was long ago practically condemned for public eohool purposes; it is without any proper system pf heating and ventilation; is hard to heat, and poorly lighted. These facts seem to the board conducive that it is not the best business policy to expend money in fitting up this building. Third, building a new building. This is what the district will eventually do. The board thinks it would better be done now than after $3,000 have been spent in temporary expedients. It ie the purpose of the board, if the tax be voted, to build an eight-room building, which it is expected, barring any extraordinary increase in population, will answer all the requirements of the district for eight to ten years. This plan requires a larger immediate outlay, but bonds can be sold bearing not to exceed five per cent, interest, »p4 pay' went can be extended pver tea years. The district will he mere than oQinpe,n< sated for Jhe Interest which it will pay on these bonds by the added efficiency can h fl given the woi-k when, quarters, suitft. . to Wfei9b ft»? <Wff.SMSS8*V.>. *v •••* *:S . ,,,, : ^^-.aEsseKT 1 <:A TF YOU have J^ floors.prepare to paint them now.
