Shadle says the Dr. Tribon house will be a fine one. He begins work at once on it. Court will meet tomorrow to close up some odds and ends of the term's work. Judge Quarton is in town. Someone was mean enough on the street Monday to say something about the price of wheat and silver. The county Sunday school conven- vention will be held in Algona May 19, at the Congregational church. On account of lengthening the school course one year there will be no graduating class this spring in Algona. E. G. Bowyer's brother has been detailed for service on the fleet. He is second is command on the Princeton. Geo. E. Clarke went to Forest City Monday to defend a young fellow arrested for resisting an officer, as alleged. Charley Stewart has his pop factory equal to 30 cases a day and will turn out that much when the warm weather sets in. Dr. Bossingham has several points in view for location. He is an able young doctor and any town he selects will be fortunate. Geo. Platt is moving his carpenter shop away from the lot recently bought by O. B. Durdall and will put it down by his home. Rev. Case of Emmetsburg is a very genial and scholarly man. He preached for the Congregationallsts Sunday to large audiences. Bradley & Nicoulin are making a specialty this season of the Minneapolis threshing machine. They advertise it this week. Angell's comedians will play all next week at the opera house at popular prices. The papers about the state say they are good. The Sunday school officers and teachers of the Methodist Sunday school will meet at C. C. Samson's next Saturday night at 8 o'clock. Frank Nicoulin took 20 men north yesterday from towns hereabouts. He makes a new offer in his advertisement this week, Read it. Algona's new superintendent of public works has rented the John Hohn house east of F. H. Vesper's, He will move from Ames at once. Thos. Little's boy will doubtless be sent to the reform school Saturday by Judge Quarton, He broke into W. H. Reed's store a week ago. Wm. Goodrich had his corn all in last week up in Hebron and sprouted, He says the best corn he ever raised in Kossuth was planted April 16. The new mill company expects to take possession of the Stacy mill May 555. Manager Hoflus will not moye to town, but will drive in from his present home. Painter Redfield is completing a oozy new home just east of Geo. M, Bailey's new home. The two buildings make a marked change dowa by the Dr. Read property. C. J. Lenander says Bancroft will send out a big hunting party this fall, and that he has agreed to shoot a moose. He fully intends to bag some big game in October. The Wigwam reports twice the business done last year, It got a oar load of threshing machines Monday. One fine steam power machine is for G. E. Hartwell and Mike Loss. THE UPPER DBS MOINES put more into the item about the arrest of Landlord Frost at Whittemore than was in the information filed. Mr. Frost is up for allowing beer in his hotel and will have ft hearing before 'Squire Clarke tomorrow. Mr. Frost is a very pleasant appearing man and this paper has no intention of doing him any injustice. O. B. Durdall is seriously considering building a two front brick block if he can get a second lot on south Dodge Street. He wilt make a fine secret society hall of the second story. Geo. Hollo way has made a sale of 40 acres near Bancroft at $47 an acre, and of 20 acres at $62 an acre. Ambrose A. Call has sold 60 acres there at $60 an acre. Land is land around Bancroft. M. C. Bailey and family are now at home in the south part of town, T. H. Connor has taken the Jas. Patterson house vacated by them, and R. F. Hed- Hck has the Patterson house vacated by Rev. Sinclair. Friday evening an old-fashioned spelling school is going to be held at the court house. Prof. Spencer will pronounce the words, Mrs. Butler will give a recitation, Mrs, E. G. Bowyer furnishes the music. Theo. Chrischilles has bought part of the Lacy barn yard on the alley back of his buildings and will build a big store room. His new building will be immediately In the rear of THE UPPER DES MOINES office. The Monday club library books at the reading room are not ready for free use. They have all to be indexed and listed. It is likely that it will take the summer to get them so they can be given out with the others. Sermon themes at the Baptist church Sunday, May 15: Morning: "The Title Examined." Evening: "The Son of God a Son of Toil." Every man and woman who earns daily bread by toil is urged to be present. Rev. F. E. Day will preach next Sunday morning at the Methodist church on "Facts and Figures." In the evening the Epworth League will observe Its ninth anniversary. Prof. Brown of Wesley and others will speak. Messrs. Sayers, White and Vesper are the city committee to investigate electric lights. They will visit neighboring towns the last of this or first of next week. Several members of the local company will go with them. We doubt if the school patronizing public would care to see drawing and music dropped from the school work. They do not cost much and are "worth all they cost in refreshing the children's minds for their other studies. Doxsee's show window is filled with a lot of handsome plumbing materials, bath tubs, sinks, etc., in regular city style. Andrew Hanson comes back prepared to do high grade plumbing, and good work costs no more than poor. The Baptist ladies will hold a fair May 19. They have prepared many useful articles that will be on sale. A 25 cent dinner and 10 cent supper will be served. One feature of the entertainment will be a baby show. Come and bring your friends. South Dodge street is still gaining. J. L. Edmonds has his bicycle shop next to the public library. He is buying a new set of tools for his shop, rather unexpectedly. A sneak thief took a box from his barn a short time ago with about $50 of stuff in it. Miss Bertha Hancock graduates Friday in the Chicago school of oratory. This is the more noteworthy inasmuch as she has done in two years what is three years' work in the course. She will not come to Algona at once but will visit in Chicago and Dubuque. The new church is to front west. It will stand 20 feet from the south line of the lots and 28 feet from the north, In front it is nine feet from the street and reaches to within 3i feet of the east line. The work of excavation is begun by G. G. Wright, who has the contract. Capt. Geo. S. Foster and wife unintentionally celebrated their first or calico wedding anniversary at Ames one day last week. About 40 friends got into the house while they were away, and had them called home by a bogus message. It was a very enjoyable occasion. E. G. Bowyer attended the state jewelers' meeting at Webster City yesterday. He reports a big and pleasant meeting. B. G. Hough, who is jeweler at Clarion, was there. Mr. Bowyer was again elected president of the state association, with which he is very popular. Wm. K. Ferguson had the surveyors up running the lines on the old Barr farm in Union he owns, and they find that the road is entirely on J. B. Hoflus'land. It was laid in an early day 70 feet off the real line. Mr. Hofius likes roads, but there is such a thing as too much road. The Mateon & MoCall millinery window is one of the chief ornaments of Dodge street. Their new hats will make every woman in the county look handsome for Memorial day, and from the people crowding their rooms the passer by might easily guess that they were supplying the county. The city has plans already for the new house that is to hold the water works and electric light plant and will begin to build at once. It also has bids on boilers big enough to run both plants. The city will put them in at 3ne and be ready for the electric light machinery when it is bought. The cyclone took out two lengths of the Buffalo creek bridge east of L. C. Smith's farm in Portland. This is the famous bridge N. L. Collar did not build. As it turns out Mr. Collar may liave foreseen what would happen. Supervisor Smith went up and arranged to have it put in again. The Methodist trustees have authorized letting the contracts for the new church on a cash basis. They are pledging their personal credit to raise the money. This means that the work will be let at the lowest possible figure, will be well done and will be done on time. The Methodists have a head for business. The firm of Phase & West of Des Moines, whose advertisement appears in another column, is one of the oldest and best known in the state. People who deal with them will find them strictly reliable, and up-to-date. If there is anything in their line you can't buy in Algona, Chase & West is the place to send for it. John G. Smith goes to Des Moines tomorrow for the Dig shoot. He will enter the live bird handicap which comes Friday and which will probably bead hotly contested as any match ever shot in the state. It is 25 birds with $25 entrance, the shooters to be handicapped as to distance. Mr. Smith expects to get about 27 yards to 32 yards for the professionals. A Skinner note deal will be tried tomorrow. N. J. Skinner turned a note and mortgage, given to Boats by one of our citizens, over to W. B. Carey in settlement of his business with him. Mr. Carey sues to foreclose the mortgage. The mortgagor says Skinner changed the mortgage after it was signed, and Boals intervenes claiming that in fact the mortgage belongs to him. A county woman suffrage conference will be held in Wesley, on May 24, 1898, to consider methods of work best suited to hasten the establishment of woman suffrage in Iowa. The legislature, although petitioned by 50,000 citizens of the state, has refused the submission of the question to a popular vote. It is necessary that the friends of the movement unite in a vigorous protest and demonstrate their convictions and strength of purpose. Program next week. A happy wedding occurred at the A. L. Seeley home In Plum Creek last Wednesday, Miss Minnie Seeley being joined to Frank Riebhoff by Rev. Greenshields of Burt. Both bride and groom belong to Kossuth's oldest and best-known families and are among the county's most popular young people. Young friends witnessed the wedding ceremony, which was a social event In Plum Creek, and the happy pair went to the Riebhoff home farm which Frank manages. THE UPPER DES MOINES extends cordial wishes for a happy and prosperous future to this young couple of old-time friends. W. H. Campbell, Algona's poet, was in Manila harbor in 1846. He was on the vessel that took Edward Everett to China that year, and after two weeks at Hong Kong went to Manila, but did not land as cholera was raging. They spent 24 hours in the harbor, which he says is very largo. They then went toJeddo, Japan, to propose the first treaty ever suggested to that country. Mr. Campbell himself hoisted the American flag on Japanese soil, and was the first man who ever did. It is interesting to hear him tell of his sea travels of those early years. Whittemore is going to be the handsomest town in northern Iowa. Nine new brick'fronts are going in on the burnt block. Five of them will be two stories high, of buff pressed brick, designed by the same architect and let to one contractor. The other four fronts will be of iMd pressed brick, one story high and of artistic design. Aug. Fenske, F. C. Groneman, H. J. Thompson, John L. Etzell and E. Chrischilles build the five two-story buildings. J. M. Farley builds three one-story fronts in one handsome block, and M. P. McDonald joins him. It will be as handsome a block front as there is in the state. The Ames papers speak highly of Algona's new superintendent of public works. The Times says: "Charley has been head engineer at the Ames plant ever since its completion, and is a very efficient man for the position. He will be superintendent of construction of the Algona plant, which will be built at once, and will then superintend the plant after it is completed." The Intelligencer says: " Mr. Foster is a native of Kossuth county and of course is glad to have a position in its county seat. He was for three years an Iowa Agricultural college student, is a capable man, and Algona is lucky in securing his services." SO_ME nice brood sows will be sold at sheriff's sale on May 17, at Algona. A good chance for somebody. G. M. JOHNSON put up August Mielke of Lotts Creek one of their 14 foot Elgin Mogul Geared mills to take the place of the pumping mill which the cyclone took away recently, SUNDAY dinnersattheTennant house will be 35 cents hereafter, Other meals as before.

Algona will observe Memorial day with elaborate preparations this year. Col. Chas. A. Clarke of Cedar Rapids will be the orator, find the mere announcement carries with it the assurance that the occasion will be one to be remembered, The Grand Army boys met Saturday evening to provide for other features, and the whole matter was turned over to a committee consisting of Dr. McCoy, J. W. Robinson and S, C. Spear. The exercises will all be held in the opera house, and also the memorial exercises. Rev. F. E. Day will preach the memorial sermon, Sunday, May 29, and this service likewise will well repay an effort to be present. Full announcements will appear later, but enough is already made public to warrant the county in preparing now to join with Algona in honoring the day. _ WE have just received a largo line of tapestry curtains.
