VanErdewyk's ruling in his school house case. The school house was moved a mile and Mr. Hale wanted it moved only half a mile. "The Late Mr. Earley" will furnish everybody with amusement this evening. It is a clever affair with lots of catchy features. It ran three nights in Des Moines last week. Anyone who wants to see a $50 revenue stamp can see it at the recorder's office. The new Gamer railway has Bled a mortgage for $160,000 and it costs $67 in stamps. First Church of Christ,.

Cooke has been figuring up the profits of war from an individual standpoint. He finds that he has exactly $50 left over and above his expenses to show for his summer's work. Being sick of course accounts for heavy expenses, but being sick is one of the sure things in war. Geo. Hathaway, who was assistant to Agent Vesper at the Northwestern depot, died Saturday at his home in Wisconsin. He left Algona Sept 23, not feeling very well. Typhoid fever ensued and was fatal. He was about 19 years old and one of the brightest boys who ever came to Algona. C. E. Heise has accepted the $2,050 awarded him for his four lots taken for a school house site. All the other and theme Evening: Church?" pathize with him in his great affliction. Jas Taylor went to Port Dodge yesterday to sit on the federal jury.

Miss Armitage has been very sick at her home in Anaraosa, and her sister, Mrs. John Grove, has been with her. fa a letter to Algona friends Saturday Mrs. Grove says Miss Armitage is now beginning to improve a little and that the worst is past. .The roof is on the' new Methodist church, the first coat of P aster will be on this week, and much of the second, is ready for the windows. Con/raotor Gross says owners have also accepted the award, except D. A. Haggard, who has appealed to the court. Mr. Haggard wns given $225 for half of his back lot, which runs east and west. Thirteen may not be a lucky number but 313 is, at least at Doxsee's. The holder of 313 is the winner of his Buck's steel range and gets a $50 stove to help mnko winter enjoyable. There were 5,000 tickets out. The stove is one of the best Buck's ranges, and Buck's has become a household word. A. A. Brunson and M. D. O'Connell grew up in the same county In New York, and both stumped as boys for the republican ticket the year before the war. One was on one side of the county and the other on the other. Mr. O'Connell is a little older. They knew each other well back 40 years ago. Worship at the Baptist church next Sunday conducted by the pastor. Morning sermon theme: "Strength in Weakness." Evening: "God's Word Our Authority," the second in the series on "Christian Doctrines." A plain gospel sermon and there will be singing of the old gospel hymns. Come. Art. Allen has been doing a land office business in photography the past season. He has taken a photograph of every occupied building in 47 towns and has sold from one to a dozen copies to nearly every owner. Art. developes his own negatives and does his own printing, and takes as fine a picture as anybody. Wbittemore has as metropolitan a block as any city in Iowa. It is a solid row of pressed brick fronts, and the stores all lighted with gasoline or ascetylino. When the other block that was burned is'built up in like manner Whittemore will be the handsomest, town in the county. A fire is not without its compensations. O. W. McMurray has moved his family into the Dr. Reed house, lately bought by E. P. Keith. This means that Mr. Keith will not come to Algona for a year at least. Mr. McMurray says he wi'll work at his trade from now on as his health requires him to keep out of doors. His two boys will work with him and learn the trade. The W. C. T. U. meets with Miss Cora Setchell tomorrow for final arrangements for the flower festival that will be held at the rink next week Thursday and Friday.. The flowers will be collected Thursday morning. An orchestra, beautiful display of potted plants and cut flowers, and a home bakery booth will be the attractions. A. Huenhold has rented Peter Winkel's ground near the ice house and will put in a nursery, market garden, flower garden, etc. He has been for three years at the head of a fine garden in Milwaukee and is an expert in his line. As soon as ho gets fully started he expects to import rare bulbs and plants from the old country. He got an invoice of 1,200 flower pots a few days ago, and a lot of hot house beds. The council has been notified that Bigelow has let the contract for the electric light boilers to the Murray works of Burlington and has ordered an engine to fill the specified requirements. It is expected now that all the machinery will be in place by Dec. 1, and that lights will be turned on by Dec. 15. The council has insisted on having everything up to grade, and Mr. Bigelow after a great deal of unnecessary delay has decided to meet the conditions. The Gross brothers take out insurance for their employes. It costs them $150 on a pay roll of $5,000. If a workman is injured the insurance company pays his wages while he is laid off and also his doctor bills. If he is killed the company pays $5,000. One of the men now working on the new church got $70 this summer on account of a tumble at LaCrosse. By taking out this insurance the Gross brothers are relieved from liability themselves for the injuries their workmen suffer. A good story is told on Bro. Sullivan in connection with the political canvass. He dropped a postal card to a former client of his up in Eagle township asking him to call at his office. The client, it seems, had been swindled before in some way, and was thoroughly alarmed. Getting up at 2 o'clock in the morning he drove the 35 miles post haste and walked into the office bright and early. He felt relieved and at the same time wanted to swear when he found out that all that was wanted was a guess as to the political outlook in the northwest corner. Testimony will be taken Saturday in the Kopesky suit against L. D. Russ to hold the half section near Sexton that Lund deeded. There are some new features In this case that were not involved in the other Russ oases and another effort will be made to hold one of the Lund sales valid. Mr. Kopesky came from near Port Dodge and put some $5,000 in cash into this farm, and then made a big loan with which to mortgage. This made it a personal liability on her if her signature was hot forged, and after she took the farm east of town in her own name an attachment was promptly levied and suit begun. Clarke & Cohenour and Sullivan & McMahon are for the plaintiffs, E. V. Swotting for Mrs. Lund. Mr. Swotting has not yet filed an answer, and the line of defense is not known. Petitions for a curfew bell ordinance are to be presented to the city council soon, and Algona may soon have a bell rung to warn boys and girls to turn in. Many prominent citizens favor it. One city official tells us that the marshal has been called to the reading room fifty times in the past two years to attend to disorderly youngsters, who were raising a disturbance outside. It is astonishing that good families allow their children to run the streets in a lawless manner at night, but they do here in Algona. THE UPPER DES MOINES has always believed that if the marshal would pick up a dozen boys and girls and keep them in jail over night the trouble would soon be over. Walter Jones, Jas. H. Jones' son, had a close call Monday. He was running the new Mitchell & Ricord threshing engine over the bridge on the Black Cat at Wm. Bossingham's when the bridge broko through. -The engine landed on its front end and is badly damaged. Walter wont down with it and was caught In such away that the escaping steam scalded his logs fearfully. He finally got a shoo off and so got out and was brought to town. Dr. Kenofick was called and dressed his burns and he is now resting easily. His right leg is so badly injured from the knee down that ho may be permanently lamed. If, as is stated, the bridge bad been condemned ns unsafe it is likely that the county will have a big bill of damages to pay. Switches Wonted. For switches and hair chains call on Setchell & Setchell. Algonn, Iowa, or write to W. J. Wells, Osage, Iowa, whose work bore is so well known and prices are so low. All work is guaranteed to suit. 3219 To Uciit. Furnished house to small family corner North Thorington and West Lucas streets. Inquire of LAURA A. HUNT.

Mrs. Setchell gets many interesting letters from her son Carl, who is still on duty at Manila. In one received Monday he tells a little about the battle when the city was captured. Ho writes: "I am afraid that the Algona people will be disappointed in my war course I was in the fight, the part of it, and slept in mud stories. Of very hottest and water and Fivecfon ton hardtack for about forty hours, but i never oven got a scratch. You have probably road Archie Patterson's name in the list of lulled on Aug. 13. Ho was a personal friend of mine, an awful nice fellow, and a good singer. Ho fell about fifty feet in front of me, but was dead before I could roach him. Coming out of the trenches to re-inforco the first and second batallions I fell and rammed my gun nearly up to the stock in mud and water. I got up and plunged on, cleaning my gun as I went. It was lucky for mo we wore not called into actual action just then or I would have missed my chance. I got it all fixed up though before we gota chance to do any of the good work. I had a few beans in my meat pan and every time wo stopped in that plunge through the bamboo I pulled out my pan and pokod down a mouthful of beans. I never had anything taste so good in my life. In tho morning I was too excited to eat and during tho battle I was as hungry as a bear." Speaking of some features of army life in the far off tropics he adds some items of interest: "You see we get two Spanish dollars for one American and so pay day we each had about $05, b\it everything costs about four prices here so really our money goes faster than it would in the states. Tho only thing that is really cheap is tobacco. Cigars cost from one-half cent to five cents. The best that can be bought only cost five cents. Liquor is cheap, too, the native gin (tho devil's own drink) only costs one half cent a glass, but the boys pay dearly for it with their health. It drives lots of them crazy for a time. Now that tho war is over and the boys have nothing to do but tho drudgery of police duty, they drink more than usual and I fear some of them will never go back on this account. After they have drank the stuff for awhile they bloat up until you would think their faces would burst. There are only two or three men of this stamp in the company I am glad to say and if they keep on there will be none at all." Carl is thoroughly impressed with the thought that bis regiment is to come home at once, arid his letter is full of rejoicing over bis probable early return to God's country. At this end of the line there seems to be no reason to believe that any of the boys will come back right away. MONEY to loan at 5 per cent. A. D. CLARKE & Co. OA8E8 IS OOtTRT. ' A Lnfge Number »f important suit* to Come On N«tt week. Among the cases to be tried at this term of court is Henry Curran's suit against the Northwestern railway for damage by fire in his peat land. The Connors case was tried at the last term bat the Curran case was not reached. The suit of Aug. Dinger against R. N. Bruer for $15,000 damages will be heard. August says he wns wrongfully arrested in California and that Mr. Bruer beat him in trading fruit land. B. W. Haggard's accident insurance case for the injuries he received at Sexton is to come to trial at this term. Ho claims $500 and the company refuses to pay. Another interesting case is the Gallion insurance suit. When Marshal Gallion was shot by the Sherburne bank robber he had an Insurance policy of $2,000 which the company alleges had lapsed. Mrs. Gallion Is suing to recover. SUGGESTIONS TROM BAILEY, Over at Algona several Indies had their pockets picked at the fair. One young lady sewed fish hooks to the Inside of her pocket and that night it took an Algona doctor an hour to got the hooks out of the hand of hor best fellow. THE UPPER DES MOINES Is building railroads this week. Last week the Courier was building to Chrystul Lake and Omaha. This week THE UPPER DES MOINES is building from Algona to Belmond. If Algona gets all throe roads perhaps she can get tho C. M. & St. P. to run in there too. At present they stop at tho bus stand tbo other side of Sexton. One of the prettiest girls of Brltt went into one of the drug stores tho other day and asked tho very poll to clerk how to take a dose of castor oil so as not to taste It. Tho clerk gave hor a glass of soda water. After she had drank it she was asked if she tasted castor oil. " Why, no," said she, " did you put a dose in the soda water?" '" Yos," said tho clerk. Tho pretty girl blushed and tarried just, long enough to say "I didn't want it for myself; I wanted it for mother." The news comes from Ripley that a young man climbed a corn stalk last Monday to see how the ears were getting along, and now the corn is growing up faster than he can climb down. Throe men have undertaken to cut down the stalk, but owing to Its rapid growth it is feared thoy will not succeed in time to prevent tbo young man's death by starvation. Ho is subsisting on raw corn, and has already thrown down four bushels of cobs and it is now thought that his supply is almost exhausted. They have a now rig patented to make u farmer boy get up in the morning. An alarm clock is fixed to start a phonograph or graphophone. This is loaded the night before by tbo bead of the family. It begins in a mild voice: "Henry, get up." A few revolutions of tbo cylinder and It sings out a little louder:' "Come Henry, got up, I. don't want to call you again." A few more turns and then it sings: " Henre-e-e, if I get in there after you with a bed slat you'll think a cyclone bus struck you." The third warning always brings them, but mother can't make the machine work when Pa is gone. The Algona Normal and Commercial school is now u, thing of tbo past. Several men have tried to resurrect and revive that college school but it has always proved a better place to drop money than to make it. Prof. Lilly lost a good lot in it about the last try it had, and the fixtures and tbo office furniture have all been sold to the Humboldt college. It requires lots of " pull togothers" to keep up a college when first started in a town, and about tho We Are Much Pleased With our trade during Fair week, We gave the people bargains in Groceries, and we know they appreciated them, for they bought large, healthy, invigorating bills-like the Dingley bill. We still have bargains that are equally good and that are surpassed by none. We are here to do business—that's why we solicit your trade. Cowlos' Block, No. 8. James Patterson.

DINGLEY & PUGH. The Merchants' Carnival. The success which is attending the efforts of the ladies of the Epworth League in arranging for the merchants' carnival is really very gratifying. The carnival is already an assured attraction. Forty-eight business houses have secured admission to the list and each firm will represent itself by a young lady in costume appropriate to the business concerned. The drill will be one of the most attractive and complete ever given in Algona. Each Itidy, after the march, will recite or sing the words in representation of the firm for which she appears. Two or three tableaux are in contemplation too. The date set is Nov. 25, and the place secured is the Call opera house. The carnival will be one of the finest of what pomises to be a very attractive and high grade entertainment season. The proceeds will go towards the new pipe organ, which ought to insure a large patronage. TAKE Rocky Mountain Tea. See it exterminate poison.
