The big merchants' carnival comes at the opera house Friday evening. Doxsee's 313 ticket don't show up. Someone has lost a $50 stove. A new drawing will be held soon. Mrs. Setchell has received a lot of reminders of Manilla from her son Carl, a newspaper, some bullets, samples of corn and grain. Rev. Suclcow will preach the Thanksgiving: sermon at the Baptist church tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock. Remember the hour. Oliver Moe's brother while getting a hog into the scalding kettle slipped and got one leg into the boiling water. He is badly burned. J. C. Anderson has bought th Wesenberg shoe stock of Fred. Cor and will sell them at auction at hi cash store south of the court house. Phil C. Hanna sends a copy of a Sa: Juan paper which tells about the or ganization of au American club ther of which he is one of the vice presi dents. Galbraith's holiday sale comes nex week, with bargains never before ol fered from their big store. They havi everything anybody wants, and price will "be cut in two. Chairman Smith has called a meet ing of the county board to consider re placing the mill bridge at once. The meeting was held Monday and a stee bridge decided on. Don't forget Rev. Day's lecture at I. O. O. F. hall next Tuesday evening A short session of the Workmen lodge will be held after the lecture for the nomination of officers. Earl J. Hamil, a nephew of Mrs. C. J. Doxsee, came from Cascade a few weeks ago to attend school in Algona, He has been very sick the past week and as soon as he is able to get up he will go to Des Moines. The appeal of D. A. Haggard from the award of the commissioners for the half lot taken as part of the new school house site ia on today at court. He was awarded $225 and says he is damaged in a greater sum. Perry G. Pratt of Emmotsburg and Mollie Newton of Guthrie Center rushed into each other's arms at Algona last week and Dr. Day performed the ceremeny for them. They then went to Cylinder to make a home. The flower show, besides being very attractive as an entertainment, netted the.fountain fund about $60. The ladies have over $200 now for tho fountain. Before long they will select a location and begin looking for a handsome fountain. Judge Helsell went home Saturday. He tried only the Dinger-Bruer case. The suit of B. W. Haggard for $500 accident insurance, that he was to hear, has been dismissed for the present at least. Mr. Haggard may bring suit at a later court. In spite of the weather a good house was out last evening for the second lecture course entertainment. The Brooks-Smiley combination proved very satisfactory- The third is Dr. Vincent's lecture on "That Boy" that comes Jan. 27. The game of foot ball tomorrow between Algona and Eagle Grove will be •worth seeing. Our boys learned whole volumes in the game with Euimetsburg and will put up a stiff game for the visitors. Snow and rain have no effect i on a foot ball game. Austin of Webster City will probably be contracted with to put ia the mlu bridge, the county buying the mater- ial. Supervisor Smith is in charge and he is satisfied he can get the work done T?i. ea S e r. thiB ,» ay than bv contact. «i o™ ge wil1 not C09t much over Ju,/UU. Chas. McKenzle, who used to visit Algona often in the early days, then a lawyer in Mason City, was up from Des Moines last week, nominally to tako part in some of the Lund-Russ cases He had a convivial visit with old friends. He lost a grip containing valuable papers while here. The school board have elected Prof Meeker, just graduated from the state agricultural college, to take classes in the high school and grammar grades. The number of classes has been too great for the present teaching force. Prof. Meeker is here at work, and comes highly recommended. For the next thirty days Goedors will make prices on his big winter stock that will close it out. He has a big supply of all kinds of staple winter goods, and quality is the strong point at the Goeders store. This will be one of the big sales in Algona and no one can afford to miss the bargains. On account of the storm the Howard concert company did not attempt to give their concert Monday evening, and went on to Emmetsburg yesterday They stooped at the Avery and had a social time. They sang for the hotel people and guests, and proved to be a very fine company of ladies and gentlemen. The Howard Concert company will always remember Algona. Two members, Gaston A. Bohnet and Eda Dulling, picked the town out as a fit spot for a union of hearts and fortunes, and Monday morning repaired to Rev. Elfstrom's church to be married. "Frank Howard" gave his real name as Martindale at the clerk's office. All of last week in court was taken up with the Dinger-Bruer case. The jury was out two hours and brought in a verdict for Bruer. Dinger sued for $15,000 and made a lot of charges, but the jury evidently thought that Bruer was justified in what he did.' It has been one of the most hotly contested cases tried in court for some time. Marriage licenses have been issued to Torger Hanson and Pearl Eschel- borger, Chas. G. Baacher and Carrie D. Best, Jos. Graham and Belle Grant, Perry G. Pratt and Mollie Newton, Gregor Runer and Annie Koch, John Capesins and Annie Goeders, Howard E. Bunt and June Daisy Green, John H. Poster and Mary A. Berrys, Matt. Hilbert and Mary Besch. W. W. Wheeler of Des Moines has bought Auditor Calkin's lumber yards and business at Whittemore, Plover and Curlew. The deal was made last week. It is understood that Ed. Taylor will be retained at Curlew and ft. L. Cotton at Whittermore in charge. Mr. Wheeler will run the business from Des Moines. This closes Mr. Calkins out in Iowa, and he is open to any new deal that may offer. The Gallion insurance case came on sefore Judge Quarton Monday. A. C. Parker was up from Des Moines helping Samuel Mayne with the prosecution, Clarke & Cohenour for the company. All Monday was spent in legal tangles. The company claimed the payments on the policy had not been kept up and .hat it had been cancelled before Mr. 3allion was shot. The policy was for 8,000, and Judge Quarton held that he company must pay. A new deal has been made in the cases brought to enforce the Lund land itles. The Kopesky case has been put n P. M. Curtiss' hands and E. A. tforling of Emmetsburg is with him, ^hey have also a number of other of hese cases that have not yet been ried, and also have been retained in hose that have been tried, and will le petitions for a new hearing in some f them. This change seems to indicate change in the legal tactics that will e pursued and also indicates that some ew parties are likely to be drawn into he litigation. The Kopesky case goes ver till next term. One of the biggest land deals on ecord is the purchase of the H. P. Watson half section by Cowles & Mur- agh, the purchase price being $45 an ore. This half Beotion is part of the _,und farm and adjoins the townsite, eing one of the most valuable pieces f property in the county. It is valu- ble as farm land owing in part to the xpensive drainage Mr. Lund put on it, nd if Algona grows, as everybody now xpeots, it will be valuable lor other urposes. The price is considered ery low, but Mr. Watson preferred ot to be bothered with oaring for the and. The Emmetsburg boys beat the high chool foot ball' eleven Saturday by a core pf 14 to 0, but lit was »ot a one* lldefl game for all that. The scores were all made In the first half before pur boys bad caught on to the Emmetsburg play. The last half was well con* tested. The Atgona playing had a great many showy points, and if the boys could have held the ball a little better and stopped the Emmetsbun? runners a little better they could have won. Clarence Yetter did Some excellent tackling and Chas. Nlcoulin's drop kicks were for" big gains. But Algona fumbled too much and gave their opponents the ball. A small crowd was out, but It "rooted" well. Jas. Taylor's special sales are the talk of the town. When it comes to locking the front doors and letting the customers out the back way to avoid the rush, one can readily comprehend what these special sales mean. That was found a necessity at the last sale, and there Is reason to believe the crowds will be larger at the next sale, which is scheduled for Nov. 29 and 30, and Dec. 1, 2, and 3. The fame of these sales is not, however, confined to the town, as people come from all parts of the county and for miles around in order to take advantage of the exceptional opportunities offered. Mr. Taylor Is to be congratulated on the mar- vellous results of his methods for getting the crowd started his way. A few simple pointers on foot ball may help everybody to enjoy the game tomorrow. Each side has 11 men. Each man has his place. Tho ball is kicked from the center of the field and it is the business of the man who stops it to get as far back with it as possible, and hold the ball. He must in all events hold the ball. The unpardonable sin is to lose the ball. The other aide " downs" him as quickly as possible. Whenever he is "down" both sides line up and the side that has the ball makes the play. The captain calls numbers which tell his own side exactly what to do. Ho may plan to run around either end, push through tho middle, pass back for a drop kick, etc. The number of combinations is infinite. Every man works like clock work. If the play is to run around the end, It is the business of three or four to run with the man who holds tho ball and keep the opponents off. On the other side the boys must " tackle" the man with the ball as soon as possible. They may grab him from the neck to the knees. If either side fails to gain five yards in three plnys it loses the ball. When the ball is carried over the goal line it is a "touch down" and counts four. Then it is brought back straight from where it went off and is kicked for a goal, which counts two more. There are two plays lasting exactly 80 minutes ench. Football Js the most scientific game played. The engine for the electric light plant came this morning. Everything is here now but tho boilers. , Col. Stedman of the Iowa Central is here this morning. A Handsome Jewelry Display. E. G. Bowyer has just returned from Chicago and will begin this week to open up his holiday goods. He has bought the biggest and best stock he has ever had, and it will pay everybody to see his handsome display. Mr. Bowyer has made a specialty of quality in his business career in Algona, and goods bought of him can be relied on, which is everything in his line. In the meantime the cost of fine goods has gone down steadily, so that he is able to offer cheaper prices than ever before for standard articles. 1898 Nov. 29, 30, Dec, 1, 2, 3. is to be the largest sale of Dry Goods, Cloaks, Underwear, Hosiery, Dress Goods, Millinery, Shoes and Blankets ever given in this county/ It will be, as usual, the whole stock.
