Thos. and Stitz Way. have bought the town sites oh the new railway into Buffalo. The town in Buffalo will be on the northeast quarter of section nine, as suggested last week. It is said it will be called Ripley. W. H. Ingham suggested to Mr. Bush that it be culled Titonka, the Sioux name for buffalo. Titonka would be a pretty name and Buffalo township and Buffalo Pork creek are both iudissolubly associated with the noblest game animal of the prairies. The Ways and Hill & Hall will put in banks, lumber yards and stores galore are booked. The new town will start out with a boom, and will be a good town from the start. Sexton Gets The School. The appeal from the decision of the school directors to move the school house southwest of Sexton up to town came on for hearing before Supt. Van Erdewyk Friday. " B. F. Reed was attorney for the appellants and he asked that the appeal be dismissed. He said that there was no case, and that the school must go to Sexton. Sexton will have a school at once. Wesley News.

He is not very favorably impressed with the country and would welcome most heartily an order for his regiment's return. moved back to Bancroft and will enjoy life in lovely old Kossuth ohce more. p. O. Ekhoiro and family moved to Algona from their farm a week ago. This excellent family will be missed in Swea township, and we had hoped that they would move to this place when they left the farm, but we hope in their new home they will enjoy the fruit of their years of toil on "the farm. Last Thursday evening at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. A, Molinderof Swea township, occurred the marriage of Carl A. Edgren and Mtss' Karolina Molinder, Rev. Paul Johnson officfnting. They left next morning on a visit to the exposition at Omaha and on their return will go to housekeeping on C. O.

McGovern are buying cattle in Dakota, and will have a big lot of feeders here about Sunday to sell. All wishing- to buy should see them. Misses Myrtle Call and Edith Bowyer were over from Algona to attend the home entertainment. The latter played a piano solo in the program. Nels Crawford and wife returned Friday from a visit to the home of their childhood in Allamakee county. They had a good time but were glad to get back to Kossuth again, where the ground is not all turned up edgewise. Nels says although land is worth from $50 to $100 per acre he would not take a farm as a gift and agree to live on it the balance of his life. Kossuth seems to be all right. _ • LiuVeme News. L. D. Lovell and family are once more residents of Lu Verne. They arrived here last Saturday from Cedar Grove, Shannon county, Missouri, where they have been living since leaving here. They have many friends who are glad to see them home.

Aldrich says he will give a prize of $10 to the man bringing in the largest load of oats during the season. That amount ought to bring in some tall loads. W. F. Parrott, when it comes to hauling oats, is somethjngof a hustler. One load he brought in yesterday contained 147 bushels and 20 pounds. By the slip of an axe Mike McEnroe north of Sexton mourns the loss of his little tqe on the right foot. It was one of those accidents that a fellow can't tell just bow it happened, mal school building. Fourth ward—At the city hall. All of the above being within the corporate limits of Algona, Iowa.

The ladies of the Episcopal church will serve lunch beginning at noon and continuing through the evening on Tuesday, Nov. 8, at Howe's restaurant. They will also have their annual 'sale of both plain and fancy articles. Oysters and coffee 25 cents. Cake, doughnuts, and sandwiches, ench, five cents extra. We respectfully solicit the patronage of the public. O. W. McMurray has sold the Thorington hotel to Mr. Rausch of Garner, as was intimated last week. Mr. Rausch is a man of means and a landlord of experience. He will take charge of the hotel soon. Mr. McMurray gets some Garner property In the trade, but has no Idea of going there to live. He will probably make Algona his permanent home. T. J.Julian went to Waterloolast week to get a new full blood bull he is buying. He is feeling pretty well pleased with his record at the Omaha exposition. He gets word that his butter won the highest award, and was marked 96i, which is very high. Mr. Julian is an expert butter maker, and he makes big records wherever he competes. The 62nd Iowa was mustered out Sunday. All but four of the privates of Company F were able to be present, Boyle and Brewster being the only ones absent from Kossuth. The officers of the regiment will not be mustered out until they have settled with all the various departments. It may be four months before they will be full fledged private citizens. The now harp orchestra played for the Clement entertainment Friday evening, and was heartily encored. The violinist, J. M. Howard, is ayoung man but an expert. He handles his bow like a professional and his playing won everybody. Algona's orchestra is a matter of pride .to the town and Messrs. Sterzbach and Cady are entitled to public commendation. The reception tendered to Rev. and Mrs. Suckow last Thursday evening was enjoyable both to the honored guests and to the participants. The church parlors were elaborately decorated and elegant refreshments were served. The rooms were, thronged and everybody was glad to welcome a family formally, which has already taken a firm hold upon the good will of the community. Merrill Johnson surprised everybody by the speed he showed on the bicycle. He went against the Crabtree pony three miles, and Forest Rice paced Crabtree. The Swede and his pacers paced Johnson, who ayeraged a mile in 2.27. He made the three miles in 7.26, and easily beat the pony. Rice's pony would have given him a chase, but Forest could not get him to run away from the other horse. Merrill is a speedy rider and in another season will be very fast. The Clement company came from Sioux Falls Friday and the train was late, making it too late to get all their special scenery in place. They expected to replace all the scenery on the stage with their own. Mr. Clement and his manager, Mr. Martin, were well pleased with their reception. Mr. Martin said, however, that this would be the last time the company could accept so small a guaranty. Clement got $250 flat, but he has already reached a point where his time is worth more.

McClannaban received a nice lot of fruit from the Charles City nursery last week. It is very evident these gentlemen propose to have fruit of their own one of these fine days.

Carried. Be it resolved by the city opunoll of the city of Algpna, Iowa, Th,at a sidewalk four and his splendid company. " A Southern Gentleman" was not as popular with many as "The New Dominion" given last year, but it was magnificently presented, and heartily enjoyed. Clay Clement is one of the rising great actors of this country and will soon be out of the range of the smaller cities. He is the author of both his great plays, and his genius is unmistakable. His two visits to Algona are the most important dramatic events in the history of the opera house. Messrs. Cullen and Walsh of Clinton came to an understanding with Mr. Bigelow last week about the boilers that stand on the track, and have gone home. The city council decided to allow nothing to be used in the electric light plant excepting as it met the specifications, and so made no deal with the Clinton men. Mr. Bigelow has notified the council that he will at once put in the plant as agreed upon, and that he has ordered machinery in accordance with the specifications. The plant will be in in a few weeks. Dr. Day has been engaged to deliver two lectures at Sheldon this winter on, " The Book of Genesis in the Twentieth Century." These lectures are in the program of a midwinter training school to'be conducted by the Sheldon district Epworth League, which will call together between one and two hundred delegates. Dr. Day has been giving considerable attention to Genesis from a scientific standpoint lately and what he says will be in view of the latest discussion. The Sheldon people will hear a couple of up-to-date and able lectures. Geo. L. Galbraith has a long sketch of the services of Will A. Bell as a rough rider with Roosevelt at Santiago. Bell used to work in the Galbraith store 14 years ago, and is remembered by many in Algona. He got into Roosevelt's regiment from South Dakota and was not wounded in the big fight although twenty-four out of the seventy in his troop dropped out. Bell went into service weighing 134 pounds and came out weighing 160. A fine portrait of him is given. Mr. Galbraith takes pride in the honor won by his old-time employe. The effort to get an outside team race any can beat any other bicyclist on a track, unless the bicyclist has quantity of expert pace-makers. Even then it is doubtful if on the Algona track a fast enough pace can be set. The Swede had two tandems riden by fast men. But the best they could do was a mile in 2.10, when to beat the horse they had to go close to two minutes. The Swede made the five miles i in 11.23*. That was 25 seconds faster than he made at the fair. But the horse beat him easily. The horse can go close to 10 minutes. The Swede has an indoor record of 8.47. But on the open road it is doubtful if less than ten or a dozen fast men could pace him to win. It would cost him $600 to bring such men here oven if they would go on this track.
