It will be war against peace If these two meet in the caucuses. It is the general verdict that Clay Clement gave the best entertainment in the annals of the opera house. His play is fresh, attractive, true to life, and not over-drawn. The villian was a real life villian, and Clay Clement a real German baron with imperfect mastery of English: The acting of the entire company could not be criticized, while Clement himself is one of the rising comedians of the. United States. He was called before the curtain at the end of every act, and twice at the end of the third, when the entire company was encored. At the second recall he made a pleasant little speech saying he should be pleased to again visit Algona. The opera house will not hold his audience when he does.

Clarko attorney fee case Is set for the first week of court and will come on next Tuesday. Judge Thomas will exchange with Judge Quarton, as the latter was originally one of the attorneys in the case. This Is the third trial in the district court, the supreme court having sent it back twice. The facts, which will be readily recalled, are that Col, Clarke was Mrs. Ellsworth's attorney in setting aside a divorce obtained by her husband illegally. The law provides that in such cases the husband shall pay the attorney's fee. Mr, Ellsworth refused to pay Col. Clarke and be accordingly sued, bringing the action in Kossuth county by attachment of Ellsworth's land, The jury at the first trial gave Col. Clarke a verdict of $2,600, The supreme court reversed the decision because the lawyers who testified to the value of legal services did not show that they were acquainted with the value of such services in Hardln county, where the Ellsworths live and where Mrs. Ellsworth hired Col. Clarke. At the second trial the jury gave Col, Clarke a verdict of $3,000 and interest, some $600 more. The supreme court sent the case back then because the judge did not rule that Col. Clarke could only recover what the same ser* vices be rendered could have been secured for- in Hardin county. This case has from the beginning attracted great attention because of the great wealth of the Ellsworths, of the sensational features of the divorce proceedings, Of the prominent people who interested themselves in Mrs. Ellsworth's behalf, and of the verdicts as to reasonable attorney's fees rendered by two juries. The third trial will he *• "lid with interest. The $1?,000 bonds asked by the school board were voted without much dlscussioh or much opposition. In spite o! slortay weather over 200 votes were polled, of which 156 were for bonds to 50 against. Five women voted, three for and two against, leaving the male vote 153 for to 48 against. The board will proceed at once to sell the bonds. Until that Is done no official action of any kind will betaken, Then a site will be selected and an architect chosen. It Is not likely that work can be begun until well on Into the summer, The board will nothurry any at the expense of a good building. Several sites are suggested. The two most commonly mentioned are the half block north of the present high school building, and the C. E. Helse lots east of Geo. C. Call's home. Others will doubtless be considered by the board, expense being taken into consideration. If the board cannot get a site at reasonable cost it will have property condemned and appraised as provided by law. The new building will be fitted up for the nigh school, and will therefore be centrally located to town. The school board Is composed of E. B, Butler, Gardner Cowles, Thos. F. Cooke, J. W. Sullivan, and E. V. Swot- ting. It is a good board, and its action will be deliberate and well considered. It is a board well qualified to give the town,a handsome and well equipped building for its money. TEACHERS AT WHITTEMORE. At the Whittemore teachers' meeting Saturday about 40 teachers were present In the forenoon and 60 in the afternoon. Excellent papers were read upon reading, the teachers' duty to the community, spelling and child study. Addresses were made upon history, grammar, and the use of mathematical blocks. One of the most helpful features of the meeting was Principal Bower's demonstration of theutility of Kennedy's mathematical blocks. The people of Whittemore furnished entertainment for the visiting teachers. Supt. Van Erdewyk may well feel gratified at the success of his district teachers' meetings. ARBOR DAY. Friday, April 29, Is officially designated by State Superintendent Barrett and Gov. Shaw as Arbor day. The Algona schools,will observe it with appropriate exercises. Everybody should plant at least one tree on ( that day. ' PATRONS' DAY. The teachers and scholars of the high school building have invited the patrons to visit them this afternoon. The regular school program will be followed, with some special features added. SCHOOL NOTES. The next teachers' meeting, to be' held in May, will be in Algona, Supt. Van Erdewyk intended to go to Lu- Verne next, but will hold the meeting there later. The high school piano fund has$46 to it credit. The Northwestern Iowa Teachers'as- sociation meets at Sioux City on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of this week. Last year at Sioux City 1,000 persons attended. There are four of these sectional meetings named from their respective corners of the state. The Northwestern and Southwestern associations meet in the spring and the other two in the fall. The state association holds its session at the holiday vacation. • • Principal W. H. Brown of Wesley has been promoted to the superlnten- dency of the Lake City schools at a salary of $1,100.
