Belton ventured the guess last week that half the corn hereabouts is still in the field. Algona will be headquarters for holiday goods this year. The stores are already filling up. F. L. Ranney has moved into town and is occupying the Dr. Pride house he bought a year ago. Every farmer who wants good reading matter at a cheap price should note our combination offer. Hamilton this week announces a good, method of keeping the rabbits out. It is worth trying, Marriage licenses have been issued to T. C. Schaper and Mattie F. Lester, C. G. Heifner and Mable A. Bourcey. The Bancroft Register says Marsh Stephens will be a candidate for the republican nomination for sheriff next fall. The new steel bridge at the mill will go in at once. In the meantime the old bridge has been patched up so as to be passable. D. A. Haggard says his school lot case was well tried on both sides and the jury was unexceptionable. He is well pleased, The Presbyterian church dedication has been postponed till December 18. The prominent men who are to be here oould not come before. Frank Jenkinson, besides building his new barn and erecting a windmill, has moved his house to the road. This beats being county clerk. The school board holds its regular meeting next week. It will then decide what to do about the decision in the Haggard valuation case. "Uncle Josh Spruceby" with the famous "Spruceby Brass Band" will be at the opera house Deo. 6, next week Tuesday. It is a clever comedy. Has. Austin of Bancroft is before 'Squire Clarke this morning charged with undue violence in whipping a pupil in German Valley with a strap. Court has adjourned to meet Jan. 2. At that time Judge Quarton will close up a lot of work. Clerk Carr will get ;i an early introduction into his duties. A goodly audience was out for the Thanksgiving sermon last Thursday, and heard an eloquent sermon. A Synopsis of it is published in another column. f The property of the late Mrs. Quick twill all be sold at once, including the ijjome, and the children will divide, his is a good chance to get many |bJngB cheap, iTJtie Episcopalians are making ar- laagements to secure Rev. McDonald, ly of Ewwsfo&WW *»? bl /for permanent rector,, will join and the two towns will provide an adequate salary. Rev. McDonald has sookon here often and is recognized as one of the rising young men of the church. His coming will be a marked acquisition, and the Episcopalians are to be congratulated. The long-standing contest over the organization of the Germanla independent school district was heard by Judge Quarton Monday. Ho will de- decide it later. An advertisement this week tells our readers about the Samson & Paine elevator and coal warehouse. This firm has been popular from the start and is doing a good business. There will be a meeting at the Congregational church Friday evening at 7:30 o'clock to talk over reorganizing the Social Union club. Rev. Suckow, Dr. Day and others will talk. The big holiday opening at Ehlers & Adams' and Dinpley & Pugh's comes a week from Monday. It is going to be a great event and it.will pay our readers to mark the date on their calendars. The heating plant at the new Methodist church will be pretty well in this week. Work is progressing on the woodwork. The church will not be complete, however, until the new year is well started.

A lot of justice and other bonds are being filed without, and it costs the county postage to send them back. THE UPPER DES MOINES' English thermometer recorded only six below as the coldest last week. The English are a little slow-going for this country. Good bright American thermometers got down to 12 below. A meeting will be held tomorrow evening at the Baptist church to bo addressed by Rev. D. D. Mitchell in the interests of social purity. Rev. Mitchell represents the North western Purity association of La Crosse, Wis. The Thanksgiving offering for the Children's Home society amounted to $29.19. One thankful heart gave royally—a twenty-dollar bill with no' clew to the identity of the contributor. It was putting into practice Matt. VI:34. THE UPPER DBS MOINES was so busy last week looking after two boys that it failed to get notice that Wm. Ehlers was likewise blessed. A second hardy youngster is visiting his home also. Christmas blessings on the little man. It is an open secret that a new postmaster is to be appointed in Bancroft in the near future to succeed Mr. Pettibone, whose , term expires, Editor Laidley and J. B. Johnson are the leading candidates. P. M. Barslou has been talked of. Glaus Ericksen was down from Swea Monday in court as a witness in the Stenstrom case. Mrs, Stenstrom got a divorce some time ago and now wants to get her land In her own name. A lot of difficulties were in the way and the matter is not settled. Prairie votes on the railway tax next week Saturday. If Prairie votes the tax the station will be put where the people want it. If it does not no one knows where the line will come between Corwith and Algona. It will be further south in all probability. Thos. A. Way of the Western Telephone company and Senator Funk of the Spirit Lake company were in Des Moines Saturday conferring with the Bell Telephone company and arranging to connect the three systems. This gives local telephone users the benefits of a much more satisfactory service. Word comes from the Murray Iron works that they are making the electric light boilers as rapidly as possible. It now develops that the engine that has come is not up to specifications, the frame being too light. Bigelow also had to send the dynamo back to have it brought up to requirements. Col. Stedman and Geo. C. Call went over into Amsterdam township Monday to canvass a little for the Belmond extension tax. The election was held yesterday. A plan was arranged by which Britt's opposition to the tax was removed, and if the "Slippery Elm" fails to materialize it is likely that the Belmond will connect from Amsterdam to Britt. A good story is told on one of the Northwestern surveyors near Burt. He has been at work in Florida for a year and got to Burt just ahead of the blizzard. When he got ready to camp out he had a linen duster and a sun umbrella. They asked him if he was used to camping and he said he was, in fact had done nothing else for a year. He knows more about it now. County surveyor TelHer is with the Northwestern surveyors west of Burt. They will finish up two surveys this week, and then the powers that be will decide. The latest survey runs directly west through Fenton and then turns north. If it is chosen, a town in the center of Fenton will go in at once. >The right-of-way man is on the ground and work willtbegln as soon as the line is located. Geo. E. Clarke is «it Forest City trying the Westenhaver insurance cases arising out of the big Buffalo Center fire some years ago, The Westen- havers went to Buffalo Center from Bancroft and lost $4,000 In the fire. For some time an attempt was made to arbitrate, and Mr. Clarke made a list of 20 men for the company to select a referee from. The company refused to do anything and a suit was brought. Mr. Brown, who represents the Northwestern railway at Burt, came to Algona last week to sod A. D. Clarke. In conversation with him he stated that It was the Intention of the company to bring its line In from the southwest between Algona and Irvington. He says that the line from Burt northwest is for the purpose of through traffic from South Dakota to Chicago, and he even hinted that Algona might be a good division point. The Algona boys out-played the Eagle Grove boys in the foot ball game Thursday and won the game by a score of 6 to 3. The snow and cold made the ball hard to handle and considerable fumbling was done on both sides, but it was a good game nevertheless. All the Algona boys made good plays. With a little practice they would make an exceptionally strong; team. They will not play again this season, but next fall they ought to beat everything in these parts. In the Henry Curran suit against the Northwestern railway for damages to peat land by fire the company has consented to a judgment of $100 in the lower court. This saves the expense of a trial. The case will now hang on the decision in the Connors case which has been appealed. The question in the supreme court is whether the company must prove that it did not set the fire or whether the plaintiffs must prove that it did set the fire—a very different matter when it comes to proving. The jury gave D. A. Haggard $350 damages for his half lot In place of the $225 awarded by the appraisers. Geo. E. Clarke as his attorney got a ne\y element of damages considered that die! not apply to any of the other holders, that is the location of the school adjoining his remaining property. In the case of the others all the property was taken so that the location of the school house did not affect them. Judge Quarton held that the jury should consider this, and it doubtless had weight with them. The case was hotly contested and attracted great attention. The Burlington Hawkeye says of the entertainment to be given at the opera house Friday evening: "The art entertainment given by Mr. S. M. Spedon at the Y; M. C. A. gymnasium last evening was above the average and was witnessed by a good-sized and appreciative audience. As well as being an artist and caricaturist Mr. Spedon is an elocutionist and ventriloquist, He gives an entertainment that is both enjoyable and instructive, and thoso who hnd the good fortune to be present will not soon forget it. This entertainment was not one of the regular course, but was intended more for the benefit of the members of the association, and they were there to almost the full seating capacity of the commodious hall." The Des Moines Mail and Times of last Saturday said: "Uncle Josh Spruceby" and his famous " Spruceby Brass Band" opened a three nights and a matinee engagement at the Grand Thursday evening. The play of "Uncle Josh Spruceby".Is a story of New England life full of fun that keeps the audience in a merry mood through the four acts, and with a vein of pathos that will cause a tear or two to trickle down the cheek. The scene is laid in Vermont and some of the characters are taken from the life and daily habits of the people the author met there. The company presenting the play this season is an efficient one, and in addition to considerable scenery a first- class orchestra fills an important part. The company gives a performance this afternoon and tonight. Poultry Wanted, On and after the first of December I will pay cash for all kinds of poultry at the Northwestern creamery. 3712 A. L.

Dr. Kenefick attended the meeting of the Austin Flint medical association at Mason City last week. He says the chief topic of discussion was the,disgrace expert medical testimony has fallen into.
