The firemen have their annual social gathering then and are making elaborate preparations as usual. The Harp orchestra will furnish the music, and the court house will bo gaily decorated for the occasion. Friday evening the Congregationalists had a novel celebration. They invited in all their friends and after music invited them to witness the burning of a $3,000 mortgage on the church, that was fully paid. It isn't often that a church gets a chance of this kind, and it was duly enjoyed. Some one has figured out that at the tax sale some of the bidders paid as high as $20 taxes and got a piece of land about four inches square. The law provides that a land owner, whoso land is sold, may have the part that is bid in set off from the northeast corner. A man wouldn't get a very valuable piece of property if he got a four inch inch corner off of some quarter sections. Tuesday evening, Dec. 27, is the date of the annual K. of P. ball at the court house. J. L. Bonar, G. F. Peek and Leo Peugnet are the committee in charge, which means that everything will bo recherche. The hall will bo decorated and the Harp orchestra will furnish music. It is to be ns elegant an affair as Algona has ever had, and all who attend will enjoy a pleasant holiday social reunion. Geo. E. Clarke and County Attorney Raymond wore at Emmetsburg Monday having the judgment entered in the Dr. Lacy case against the county. The verdict is $368 and the costs $410, in all $778 with interest. The first judgment was for $235. The law has been decided against the county and we see no further use of lawing it, even if a reversal could again be won. The county will have to pay in the end. F. S. Standring, who used to live in Algona, is getting fame fast. He attended an Elk's ball at Seattle, Wash., while on his way to Hawaii and won a prize Now "Prof." Button is announcing in all the papers hereabouts that he taught Mr. Standring how to dance, that he never took of anyone else that he learned in two terms, and that anyone can get $100 prizes by attending " Prof." Button's classes, etc. Prairie voted against the Belmond railway tax 66 to 58. The surveyors are now running th«?line from Corwith straight west through the ntirth tier of townships in LuVerne and the station will probably be located on section 5 in LuVerne, the road then turning northwest Prairie will wake up some fine come to Algona and leave silver dollars nt various places. That would bo a test that would test. The only evidence of hypnotism the Griffith outfit loft in Algona wns hypnotising a fosv people into buying cheap millinery at a dear price. The " Terrible Swede" came in sixth in the six-day bicycle race in Now York and won $200. Ho made 1,757 miles, an average of 293 miles every 24 hours, or 12 miles an hour for every hour of the six days. Ho slept about three hours a day. The winner of the race made 2,007 miles, an average of 16 miles an hour for every hour of the six days, beating the world's record. Fifteen finished the race, and nearly as many broke down and quit. Lawson showed great staying powers, and won considerable attention. It is definitely settled that C. O. Simpson, who has been travelling from Algona for a boot and shoo house, will open a store in the room now occupied by the Heiso barber shop. It is expected that the room will bo ready by Feb. 1, and the stock will go in at once. The barber shop will bo moved up stairs for the present. Next spring a now building will be built at the rear of the present building for the barber shop and bath rooms. Mr. Simpson is a genial business man and an expert at the shoo business. His final location at Algona- adds a number ono business house. A. C. Prime has opened the roller skating rink, or will open It tonight, with something new in the way of cycle skates. They are a great improvement over the old roller skates and furnish no end of amusement. There is no reason why roller skating should not be a healthy and proper amusement, and Mr. Prime says his rink will bo run In such a way that no ono will hesitate about visiting it. Everything depends upon that. Ladles are especially invited and the orchestra will bo present. Ho has had considerable experience with gymnasiums, indoor base ball, etc. Ho may add a ball game during the winter if the young people want it. Algona is to have some big races In June. E. P. Bircher was down from Bancroft Saturday making some local irrangemonts. It is expected that Britt, Emmotshurg, Webster City, and Spencer possibly will bo in the circuit, and two stake races with $300 purses for each are to bo a feature at each town. The stake race is a single dash, and the entrance has to be paid long in advance in installments, a new thing in this country. Tho stake races aro the big races in the east. Besides these races there will bo four or five others with purses of $100 each. It will soon be known if the plan is a go. If it is Algona will witness the biggest running races over seen hereabouts.
