DINGLE Y, Manager. Many Propositions Before the Ccmii- oil for Furnishing Apparatus- Council Doings. The city council has frequent meetings these days. Not unlike the fire company, they are subject to a call at any time, and they get together on short notice. They met Friday evening and listened to propositions from agents representing half a dozen firms for furnishing wire, lamps, and some of the minor materials needed for the light plant soon to be put in. No contract was let at the time, but the bids are being considered, and the orders will be placed in due time with those houses which will furnish what is wanted at the best prices. A meeting was held last evening. Representatives of about 16 different concerns that deal in engines, dynamos, and other electrical machinery presented their claims and the council listened attentively. No conclusion was reached, but the various propositions are being gone over with a view to selecting the one best adapted to our needs for present and future use. Supt. of Public WorksFosterhasplans drawn fora power house which he will submit to the council. His plans are subject to change, as much depends upon the kind of plant that is put in. If a system is adopted in which belted machinery is used a much larger building is required than would be the case if what is known as the " direct" system is purchased. The council is being guided by both the judgment and experience of Mr. Foster and what they have learned through their visits to other towns, and there is no doubt of their doing the wise thing in the end. Council Proceedings. ALGONA, May 28.—City council met in regular session at the city hall, Mayor Chrischilles in the chair.

Algona is headquarters for the best flour on earth. Both mills are running to their full capacity, and still are behind on orders. James Patterson's groceries go as if it were no trick at all to sell them. He always has a snap on something for his customers. You won't fall down and cut yourself on one of Doxsee's jack knives, but you will be astonished at what 39 cents will do towards buying one. John Goeders says his big stock of goods is beginning to move at a rapid rate. That big advertisement and the low prices are doing the business. IN SEARCH OF GOODNEK. Ho Wns in St. Paul, But Has Now Gone South With the Minnesota Soldiers. E. W. Goodner is still wanted in Algona. One of his worst pieces of confidence work was in giving a mortgage on his household goods for which he received $200 from John Byson. Tho latter, presumably being unacquainted with tho law which makes it necessary tho case of a chattel mortgage to have the wife's signature, provided the man is married, loaned Goodner $200. After Goodner's departure Byson discovered tho worthlessness of his security, and had a warrant issued, armed with which, and a requisition from the governor, Sheriff Chrlstensen went to St. Paul, where he had reason to believe Goodner could be found. He was there a couple of days, during which time ho learned that Goodner had been there and had left only three days before with a squad of soldiers headed for Fort McPherson, Ga. From what could bo learned it was shown that Good nor expected to secure a responsible position as stenographer with some one in command, and it is not unlikely that he will be successful. He is a capable short-hand man and type-writer, and could easily fill a position of that kind. But he is an all-round bad man, and it is but a question of time when his sins will find him out.

BRIEFS ABOUT BUSINESS, The circus comes Friday, Langdon & Hudson are still offering something very nice in glassware. Cash is what counts at the Anderson grocery. You know it when you try it. A feature of the John Cronin furniture store is a special sale each week. Galbraith's Friday and Saturday sales are popular. They always offer bargains. Hamilton's consolidated wire fencing is going like hot cakes. He has a right to brag on it. If you can't find the kind of fresh fruit you want, what is the matter with iruiv yuu wttui>, wimD IB Grove's canned goods? Frank Nicoulin is off for Minnesota again looking after his land business.

There i,s paid to be. & shor^gf of At the Episcopalian church, yesterday morning at 8:30, Rector Paul Talbot officiating, occurred the pretty service by which Al. Falkenhainer and Miss Mattie Mae Haggard were joined in marriage. Following the service the bride and groom, together with about 30 invited guests, repaired to the D. A. Haggard home, where the wedding breakfast was served. The newly- wedded pair then took the 10:46 train east for Dubuque, where both have relatives and many friends, and where they will remain for a couple of weeks. M. P. Haggard, brother and sister of tho bride, acted as bridesmaid and best man, and the service was that of the Episcopalian church, beautiful and impressive. The bride is the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. D. A. Haggard. She was born and raised here, is a charming: and accomplished young woman, and decidedly popular among all her friends, who are many. The groom has been a resident of Algona some three or four years, and his sterling qualities have been manifest in all his business dealings. There were a large number of beautiful wedding presents. THE UPPER DBS MOINES joins the many friends of the contracting parties in sincere and hearty congratulations, and trusts their voyage over the matrimonial sea may be as serene as the present occasion is joyous. Wulaton-Ijlclc. H. W. Walston went to Sanborn this morning, and this afternoon the interesting event which will make Mrs. Helen J. Lick his wife will occur. Mrs, Lick is little known in Algona, but we have good authority for saying that she is in every way worthy to become the wife of our townsman. They will return to Algona tomorrow and will be at home to their friends in the Walston residence. This paper congratulates in advance. _ , PARTIAL program of the great M. W.

The handsome appearance of the fence when it is up. 2. There are no small wires in its construction, the strand wires being NOB. 9 and 11, and the stay wires No. 13, thus giving it unequaled strength and durability. 8. The perfect winding of the joint and the crimp in the strand wire prevents its moving out of place. It is an adjustable fence and is easily put up over uneven ground. 4. The old theory that wires must be twisted together to counteract the effects of heat and cold lias been exploded. We claim that the OKIMP in our fence fully provides for contraction and expansion—that it Is even better than twisted wires because we get more strength with less weight of wire, and the single wire does not hold the water, causing it to rust. 5. It is cheaper than barbed wire. 6. Safety to animals and effectiveness against all kinds of stock.
