The Congregational pastor at Emmetsburg will preach in Algona next Sunday. The new public library board is well calculated to manage the library successfully- About half the public school scholars are out of many of the rooms. Measles is the cause. Mrs. C. W. Parker has been in Bancroft the past week, called by the illness of her daughter. The Congregational ladies give their May breakfast tomorrow morning. Get up when you please. A little branch of the cyclone Saturday cut across and blew down two big barns south of Bancroft. Dr. Sayers, Alex. White and F. H. Vesper have acted as committee to organize the electric light company. The spring rains have been the making of crops this season. We have never had a more favorable prospect. Regular meeting of A.

Matson is home from Chicago and will be here two weeks. He is doing his gold mining over in the real gold country lately. ^ Kossuth has 12 delegates in the republican state convemtion. Last year the county had 16. Last fall's political cyclone knocked off four. The week's weather bureau report shows that Iowa is all right. Corn planting has begun in some places. The state generally is reaay for it. The Monday club-has been generous in donating its books to the public library. It has a library easily worth $1,600. All the books will now be free. The boys at Des Moines get $1.60 a day as long as they are national guards. It is not until they are accepted by the United States that they drop to $13 a month.

It was a destructive storm all over the northwestern part of the state. Prof. Lilly takes Ed. Richardson's place as tuba player in the band. The professor is a professional. He is a lucky addition, for a good tuba player is hard to find. This is the season when silks are going to be the popular thing. Gul- braith's store has as fine a line as can be found in most cities. His show windows are only a hint. Anew napthalaunch that will carry eight people will go in on tbe'mill pond soon. The owners will he known as soon as the boat arrives. It will be brand new and a beauty. Geo. W. Hanna was up last week. He says he heard from his brother Phil, not long ago. Phil, enjoys the excitement, but says the consular fees have fallen off amazingly. A great many, friends of the Horan brothers will regret that they are to drop out of the city service. They have been exceptionally faithful and competent, and leave a good record: One of the Gillingham boys, a son of the old lady who burned, was drunk and insulted some ladies Saturday, Fred. Fuller filed an information for his arrest. The Gillinghams are a tough crowd.

That brand means the best made, as inquiry of any clothing house will satisfy the buyer. When H. S. & M. is on a suit ife means that the buyor gets what he pays for. The Wigwam is putting up -Monitor geared wind mills this week for Andrew Miller and Fred Miller, two of Kossuth's substantial farmers. The Wigwam has sold a carload of these mills from Algona and Burt during the past 30 days, Rev.

Walker farm. He will break the entire section at once and sow flax. He bought at what everybody calls a low figure and will make a handsome profit. Jt will delight the ladies to call at the new Rosewall bakery. It is elegantly fitted up and the product of the oven will ornament any table. Mr. Rosewall has put in a first class restaurant and is already getting a good patronage. Give him a call for luck. The new armory for company F is figuratively speaking left in the air by the war. Mr. NioouUn is completing the work, but does not know what he will do with it if company F.should be gone a year or two. If a new company is organized it will doubtless take it. The new opera house company met last evenipg at F. W- Dingley's office and elected directors for the ensuing year as follows: Theo. Chrisohilles, Geo. E. Clarke, 0. 0, Samson, J. W. Wadsworth, O. B.

Mart McCall will spend the summer in Chicago perfecting himself on the harp. The other members will emain in Algona. G. W. Cady will ceep the band up to its usual standard, which means that Algona will have the best.

Brownell's shoe store is now full ength and he and his family are occupying the Archibald house west of Am- jrose A. Call's.

Ericksen, who used to live n Algona, wife of Nets Ericksen the druggist at Milford, started to go down the outside stairway leading from their •ooms over W. H. Minor's store, hav- ng the baby in her arras, and in some manner tripped and fell to the bottom of the stairs. She was picked up un- :onscious, but had suffered no permanent injuries. The bnby was unhurt. Mrs. Betsy Norton suffered a para- ytic stroke last week at the Robert Benderson home in Riverdale, and is not likely to recover. Mrs. Norton, if she lives, will be 93 years old next Tuesday. She has been one of the pioneers of Kossuth and every old settler knows her. She has been vigorous all her life and even extreme old age has not been wholly unenjoyable. Three cars of excursionists came from the north Sunday and three were filled at Algona. Like crowds went from all along the line, the Northwestern carrying 4,500peopleto Des Moines. In all 20,000 were brought in and 50,000 went to the fair grounds to see the soldiers. They found the boys well and happy, and already a fine looking army. The train reached Algona about 2 o'clock Monday morning.

Haggard chief drill master, C. C. Samson treasurer, B. F. Grose chaplain, and H. J. Hjerleid secretary. The enrollment now is about 100 and a dozen of the latest army regulations have been ordered. The idea is to get a second company from Algona in case the national guard is filled to take the places of the boys at front- It will make some of Algona's citizens realize that time is flying to learn that Miss Lela Benham and Miss Mabel Stough, Y, U, Stough'e daughter, are both manned in Minneapolis, Miss Benham married an officer in the national guard last Sunday, the cere Everybody Come AND SEE AT' James Patterson's.

Ho came into camp one night an hour late, with part of a bottle of whisky in his stomach and part in the bottle. He asked one of the young boys if he would like a drink of coffee, and in the dark got him to drink. Next morning he bragged about it. dipt. Cooke stripped off his uniform, dressed him in a $1.60 suit of clothes and bought him a ticket homo. He did right. The parents of the younger boys need have no fear so long as they are officered as at present. It seems that E. W. Goodtier, longtime clerk for Call & Cowlos, and later for Ambrose A. Call, has deserted his nmily, Algona, and a long list of cred- tors at one and the same time. Ho is estimated to have borrowed nearly 11,000 that there is nothing to show or, and if rumors can be relied on is one of the smoothest confidence men Algona has harbored. Mrs. Goodner, who is a sister of C. E. Davenport of Lho Deposit & Loan, has taken stops to secure a divorce. Goodnor was an effl- iient business man and had no difficulty n getting work. What he did with lis money is a puzzle to those who cnew him best.
