The vote yesterday was for bonds to build abuilding. W. J. Crammond is out for county recorder. He has been assessor of Algona for the past two years and has proved a very competent and painstaking official, and no one will doubt thatiis recorder he would render very efficient service. Mr. Crammond is an old settler, and has lots of friends and will bo strong in the convention. At a meeting of the Ladles Society iu the Congregational church, the following officers were elected for the ensuing year: President, Mrs. J. W. Robinson; vice president, Mrs. W. K. Ferguson; secretary and treasurer, Mrs. C. B. Hutchins; directors, Mrs. A. P. Hall, Mrs. C. O. Simpson, Mrs. Stevenson, Mrs. C. D. Ward. Frank E. Allen of Burt is a candidate for the office of county recorder. Frank is a son of one of the old settlers of the county, is an aggressive young republican, a genial and well equipped man for the office. His nomination would be a just recognition, and if it is made the good work that has characterized the recorder's office for years will be continued. The city marshal last week notified the liverymen and others that ,they must obey the ordinance and keep wagons out of the street. It seems that Charley Brown neglected or declined to obey'and he was brough t before Squire Clarke and fined $1. Charley created a slight sensation by declining the first invitation to appear before his honor and Sheriff Christenson had to go after him. M. P. Weaver is up for the county iiuditorship and announces his candi- dncy this week. Mart has been a popular deputy and has shown himself fully competent to be head man in the office, He has a host of friends, and the sentiment of the county is voiced by the Bancroft Register, from which we quote elsewhere. Mart is a deserving young man, obliging and careful in his 'work, and. if ho is nominated the county will get splendid service. A petition asking B. F. Crose to allow his name to come before the county convention wits largely signed by the lawyers of the county last week, both democratic and republican. Mr. Crose is finishing his third term, and has been one of the most efficient officials in the state. He has not decided yet what he will do. Whether he decides to be a candidate or not to be, the resolutions adopted are a very high compliment to him. E. V. Swotting announces himself this week as candidate for county attorney. Mr. Swotting is one of the ablest lawyers in the county, and has had ample experience to make him one of the best prosecuting attorneys in the state, holding a like position. Ho has been on one side or the other of much important litigation in late years and is everywhere highly regarded in the profession. If Mr. Swotting is chosen Kossuth will have a clear and vigorous enforcement of the laws. J. W. Hinchon and Wm. Cordingley returned from Europe last week. They had a pleasant trip but agree on the "old country." Mr. Cordingley says he would not go back to England to live if they would give him a township, and Mr. Hinohon says about the same of Ireland. Mr. Hinchon says the most noticeable thing in Ireland and everywhere is the liquor drinking. The poor pay all they get for drink. He says it is astonishing to see how the people forego the common conveniences of life to buy ale, beer and porter. The local pastors met at the Congregational church after the Sunday School meeting last Sabbath evening to consult as to the desirability of holding union evening services during the heated term. The Congregational people were represented by Prof. Spencer, a member of their pulpit supply committee. It was decided to hold such services during the next six weeks and the first service was set for at the Congregational church next Sunday evening, when the Baptist pastor, Rev. O. H. Stiles, will preach. Dr. Day was made a committee to prepare a schedule for the balance of the term which will appear later. Algona will have the cheapest electric light service in Iowa. The council last night adopted a flat half-cent-an- hour rate for 16 candle power lights, and will use meters for everybody. This means that the people may put in as many lights as they please, burn them when they please, and pay for what they consume. The usual rate talked by electric light men is a cent an hour. Three quarters of a cent is a cheap rate. Half a cent is at the very bottom. It is as cheap as kerosene and everybody in Algona ought to take the lights. The cost of wiring is small while the convenience of the lights will be very great. TfiESEBtlOESTO-Mt. Bishop McCftbe Will kay the Corner Stone for the Methodists-Business will be Suspended. The services In connection with laying the corner stone of the new Methodist Episcopal church will occur this afternoon. A large number of visiting clergymen will be present. The list as already reported includes of old pastors, Revs. G. W. Southwell and S. P. Marsh, whose wives will accompany them. It is expected that othersof the list of former pastors will be present. In addition there are the following who have signified their intention to be present: Rev. Jno. Hamerson, Whittemore; Rev. J. W. Walker, Emmetsburg; Rev. H. L. Smith, Ren wick; Rev. Rev. G. B. Malone and wife. Swea City; Rev. C. A. Dewit, Corwith; Rev. J. Green and wife, Livermore; Rev. O. K. Maynard and wife, Britt; Rev. T. L. Kaine, Armstrong; Rev. E. L. Benedict and wife, Bancroft; Rev. G. F. Whitfield and wife, Burt; Bev. Schmidt, German Methodist pastor, Burt; Rev. J. W. Mahood, Rock Rapids. Of course there will be others who have not felt sure enough of attending to notify the pastor of that fact. The services will begin at the Congregational church at 2 o'clock, and will include, together with special music, an address by Bishop McCabe, At the. conclusion of this service, the congregation will repair to the new church, where the corner stone will be laid with due ceremony. The business men have agreed to close their stores from 2 to 4 o'clock so that all may have a chance to witness these interesting exorcises. The stone will bo set on the south west corner and will occupy the first place above the floor joists on the southwest tower buttress. It will contain the following articles: a Bible, a Methodist hymn book, a Methodist discipline, copies of church official papers, copies of local newspapers, a list of the church membership and officiary, clippings announcing the declaration of war against Spain and the victories of Devv- ey, Schloy and Shafter, and an American flag. It will be a notable occasion and a most enjoyable one, of which THE UPPER DBS MOINES will give a detailed report next week.

Kovlovslcl, who is helping the stone cutters on the new church, wanted to do the handsome thing by the boys Sunday, and so tapped a keg of rhubarb wine of his own manufacture in their honor. The boys were used to most everything else, but rhubarb wine had a new tangle to thorn and they speedily succumbed. The first two glasses did up most of them. This of itself would not make an item, but incidental to this was a debate in which Ernest Blinkman engaged with a stone cutter. The result of this was that Ernest's face looked like a corner stone, while the cutter's hand was in such bad shape that he couldn't go to work Monday. The boys have sworn off on rhubarb in all its forms. IF you have idle money why not have it whore it will earn you something. Interest paid on time deposits. 45 GEO. C. CALL.
