GALBRAITH'S Until Jan. 1, 1899 Nice new line calico at 30 a yard, worth 5c ; outing flannel 30 a yd., worth 50 ; flannelette $c a yd., worth IDC ; best thread 30 a spool ; fine cotton cloth 3c a yd.; safety pins 2c a card ; dress stays only 5c a bunch. SHOES worth $2 to $4 a pair Prairie township is going to vote again on the question of a tax for the Belmond extension. The trustees have called nn election for Jan. 4, next week Wednesday, and it is belieVed that the township will vote the tax this time. It has become evident that the line will go LuVerne if a tax is not voted, and it is possible that the road will follow the survey that has been made anyway, regardless of Pralrle'a vote. Engineer Hill says the road Can be built cheaper that way and have fully as desirable territory. Another thing that is influencing Prairie is the fact that six miles of railway for taxable purposes will in a very few years pay back all the bonus comes to, regardless of tlie advantages of a depot by the church. Northwestern Surveyors at Work. The Sac Sun has the following note about the survey Irora Donison to Algona: On Monday morning the surveyors employed by the Northwestern railway to locate the, line of the Sac City and Algona extension, which is to be the connecting link between St. Paul and Omaha, received orders to make a locating survey, and are now at work on the line. Several preliminary surveys have been made; but this, which is expected to be final, will be made with more care as to details. Latest information as to their course indicates that the locating survey will not vary greatly from the last preliminary line out of Sac City, which runs about a mile north of the first surveys and crosses the main road to Newell at the Fred. Windier farm a mile from the north line of Jackson township. Job lot If you intend buying anything in Cloaks, Capes, or Jackets, it \ will pay you big to look over our stock before buying. We have a Inew line, bought direct from the manufacturers, all of which we will (sell at less than manufacturers' prices. Look over any stock you Iwish and then come and we will make you better prices than you Ihave been offered, no matter how low the price has been made you; land remember we will meet all prices made by anyone on any kind |of goods in our line. Will Build 350 Miles. Denison Review: The Northwestern proposes to build about .^250 miles of new line this year. The proposed extensions are somewhat as follows: Prom Mondamin through Ute and Ho- henzolleren to Odebolt; from Denison to Wall Lake; from Sao City through Fonda, Pocahontas, and Rolfe to Algona; from Burt, just north of Algona, through Armstrong to Sanborn, Minn., and another line is talked of extending the Iowa and Dakota from Iowa Falls northwest to Burt connecting with the Sanborn line. It will thus be seen that the Northwestern will invade what has been heretofore almost entirely Milwaukee and B., C. R. & N. territory. The new short line from Omaha to Minneapolis will be via Denison, Wall Lake, Sao City, Algona, and Elraore, Minn. NORMAL SCHOOLS TO BE BUILT. indication of Geo. W. tiatthtt and B. F. Reed, and Corwith gets $216 instead of $2,000. After long squabbling the matter several years ago was submitted to arbitrators, LuVerne chosing Mr. Hanna and Corwith Supt. Thompson. They agreed upon Supt. Reed and in the end the two Kossuth men agreed upon nn award. Corwith at once took steps to have It set aside as unfair, Illegal, etc; The beginning of the trouble dates from Corwlth's attempt some 12 years ago to take In eight sections of Kossuth land and tax It for the Corwith schools. Geo. E. Clarke has been attorney for Prairie and LuVerne since that time. DEATH OF MBB. 0. W, PARKER. Another Early Settler PnBses Away Suddenly-Hurled at Irvlimton. Mrs. C. W.

PLAYING OARDS IS CHURCH, Some YOUUK People Are Accused of Interrupting Belltfloua Services In Gorman Valley. A couple of young men and a couple of young ladles were arrested last week on the charge of interrupting religious meetings in the Gorman Valley school house by playing cards while preaching was going on. It seems that the charge did not hold when the justice looked into the evidence, and now the prosecuting witness is to be tried for perjury. It seems from all reports that the young people were very disorderly. HE DIDN'T ADVERTISE. . 0. T. H. Lag^f.^ ir IALGONA MILLING COMPANY [INCORPORATED.] ^ attention paid to the The Stole Teachers' Association Will Ask for Throe New Schools—Al- tloim'B Chance. Among the recommendations that will be made by the State Teachers' association to the legislature next year will be the following: "Professional instruction.—1. Normal schools: That these may be easily accessible to all rural teachers, equip and sustain three additional state normal schools as follows: One in the northwestern, one in the southwestern, and one in the southeastern district of the state. These and the one already established, maintain in continuous—or practically continuous—session throughout the year, that teachers may avail themselves at any time of the facilities thus afforded for professional training." The resolution has been agreed upon, and the matter will be pushed. At least one new normal school will be built in Iowa by the coming legislature. It is not too early to keep this in mind, and with the new railways coming to Algona, our chance will be much better than it ever has been. President Currier in his annual address said yesterday: Iowa ought to have three new schools at once. These might well be confined, for the present, to elementary work, with no courses longer than two years, others for one year, and others still for a single term, with special reference to the needs of the teachers of rural schools. Let us make urgent appeals to the legislature for additional normal schools until we succeed. A roil born, an Old AlKO'ia Merchant, Insane and Guilty of Issuing Fraudulent Paper. The supreme court has sustained a decision rendered three years ago by Judge Hlndman at Fort Dodge, by which A. L. Arenberg, who once attempted to run a clothing store in Algona, was adjudged guilty of issuing a fraudulent mortgage for $6,500. Arenberg, it is alleged, made large purchases of goods from Marshal Field, Carson Pirie, Scott & Co., and other leading firms of Chicago, and according to the charges made by the prosecution, made false representations. In order to secure himself he then made a mortgage to his father for $6,500. Suit was then brought against Arenberg by his creditors, among whom the principal one was Joseph Hyman of Fort Dodge, charging him with having given a fraudulent mortgage. The case was tried before Judge Hindman, who rendered a decision for the prosecution. The case was then appealed to the supreme court, where it has been pending until last week, when the decision of the lower court was sustained. The Fort Dodge Messenger says Arenberg is now an inmate of a lunatic asylum. good music is a feature. Rev. A. W. Dubois is an effective speaker.
