Galbraith's inventory sale is on. Marsh Stephens is a grip sufferer. Walker Whiteside cannot come to Algona. Krafts have some special bargains this week. Money is loaned now in Kossuth at five per cent. John Cronin has been sick in bed a week with grip. M. P. Randall says he has not yet decided what he will go at. Perry St. John slipped on the ice last week and broke his arm. The Kossuth farmers' institute will be the best ever held hereabouts. The impression is that the new town of Fenton will be on D. A. Buoll's -and. both sides but the result was about the same. It is a surprising vote, but Iowa is full of towns that have done the same thing. Marshal Cordlngley is going to begin shooting dogs. The tax was due Jan. 1. He has tags for sale and it is not yet too late to save a few desirable canines. Mr. Gross expects to be done with the new church the first of next week. All it will be waiting for after that is the electric lights. The pews will go in at once. A. L. Belton brought in a turkey's egg that was laid Jan. 1. That shows what a boom we are having. Who ever heard of such activity among turkeys before? Chas. A. Cohenour begins his duties as county attorney over at Wesley Monday before Justice Robinson. Someone is up for taking goods under false pretences. All Algona friends will congratulate Dr. and Mrs. Shore of Des Moines on the arrival of a son Monday morning. THE UPPER DES MOINES wishes the little one the best of the season. J, R. Bright has a Jersey cow that has had three calves in succession on Christmas day. He counts on her just as he does on the clock. He ought to be asked to tell the farmers' institute how he does it. A number have seconded THE UPPER DES MOINES' suggestion that we need a town clock. It will cost less than a lot of new bells and will serve everybody. A good town clock can be heard as far as any bell. The following is the program for the meeting of the W. L. A. S. Friday afternoon: Quotations on music; paper, Empress Josephine, Mrs. E. C. Dodge; reading, Gen. Lafayette s Watch, Mrs. Evans. Britt, June 28-29. The total purses will be $4,fKK), which are guaranteed. There is every prospect of a successful season. The new Kennedy department store at Bancroft has contracted for a half page ad. in the Register the year round at a cost approaching $300. The Kennedys are business men and they know how to reach the public. "A dozen such men could make Bancroft one of the big towns of Iowa. John G. Smith gets word that the Lacey bilTfor the propogation .of Chinese pheasants has passed the senate, nnd is likely to become a law. It is unlikely that anything will be done for Iowa, however, until the legislature malujs laws to protect tho birds after they have been put in the state. M. E. Pnlmer, who has been in whiit is now Buffalo township ever since 1869, feels that h« bus waited a long time for the boom. He was in Algona to begin with, then Wesley, then" Buffalo, and all the while away from market. But hia turn hns come and he feels us good over Titonka as any pioneer ever did over a railway station. Tiede of Belmond. the biggest advertiser in lown outside of the cities, is to tell the editors at Eagle Grove what he knows about advertising. Tiede keeps a dozen clerks in his store at Belmond all the Vime and is said to do more business than all the other merchants of Belmond combined. Tiedo draws trade from all tho adjoining counties. The Methodist are planning to give a musical entertainment in connection with tho church dedication that will be worth hearing. They have engaged Harrison Wilde of Chicago, the greatest pipe orgnn player in this country, to give a recital. Tho organ is admitted by everybody to be a fine instrument, and Wilde will give a recital that will be memorable in northern Iowa. The Woodmen had a meeting in Algona yesterday. The delegates present were A. W. Wright of Ledyard, Dr. Saunders of Swen City. B. Bauman of Bancroft, H. H. Fellows and F. C. Bacon of Wewley, A. Yale'of Whittemore, I. P. Harrison of LuVerne, H. B. Mason and C. J. Doxseo of Algona. H. B. Mason and H. H. Fellows were chosen delegates to the state camp which meets at Marshalltown, Feb. 8. F D-. Calkins is talking of opening a big lumber yard in Algona in the spring. J. J. Cordingley will rebuild his meat market as soon as the insurance is adjusted. The weather of the past week has been of the stiff winter variety, but no storms. •Mr. Jones says the Wigwam will build in Fenton as soon as the new town is located. John G. Smith was re-elected chairman of the supervisors. He is a good presiding officer. Chas. Bell hauled 221 bushels of oats into West Bend and won §10 offered for .the biggest load. 'Squire Raymond has not yet had a case in his cdurt. Algona justice business is quiet these days. John Goeders has the contract to furnish the carpet for the new church. It will take over 500 yards. E G Bowyer's brother is executive officer on the Princeton, which has just been ordered to Manila. Maro, as usual, gave a gt-eat_ enter- tainmeAt. If anyone doubts his skill let him ask "Uncle" Benjamin. Bidding on county grading for the The supervisors and Dr. Lacy of Lu- Verne are to meet Jan. 30 to try and agree on a settlement in the famous case against the county. The doctor has a judgment of S372, and about $400 costs have been added. Brownell's shoe sale discounts anything he has ever before offered. His marked down prices are bona fide. The odds and ends of his stock are going for nearly nothing, and there are some fine goods in the lot. The boys will get some fine prizes at Doxsee's if they can draw a good copy of the Buck's steel range cut. Mr. Doxsee is arranging to have the winning drawings engraved and will print them to show how they look. It is rumored at Burt that the Northwestern will build a fine brick depot in the spring and four engine stalls. This new depot is to stand on the east and west track. We cannot find out that anybody knows anything about it. The Cameron company played in Foster's opera house in Des Moines Monday evening. The Register says: " Mme. Cameron and her concert com- nanv appeared at Foster's last evening and gave a most enjoyable program. 1 At the social union Friday night N. Spencer speaks on the State Teachers " l Talk about our hogs dying out. Ernest Gilbert north of town had a litter of Jersey Reds born the night the mercury got down to 26 below, and their mother hud unwisely chosen their birth place on the unsheltered side of a straw pile. Next morning six lively little fellows were frisking about apparently as hearty and comfortable as they would be in June. These pigs ought'to be good stock for Klondike breeders. The postofflce election is being held in Bancroft today from 9 to 4 o'clock. The Australian ballot is being used, the names of W. F. Laidley, J. B. Johnson, and P. M. Bamvlou being printed on it. All republicans getting mail at the Bancroft office are qualified to vote. No particular excitement is attending the contest. Editor Laidley showed commendable fairness in not using his paper to injure his competitors or to help himself. The county supervisors are fig /nig on making a model court room out 01 the court house hall. They will make two or three rooms across the south end, for the judge, reporter, etc., put tho bench up near the middle, build a bar, and fit up a vault for the clerk's records, and possibly put the clerk s office up stairs. They will have an architect design the changes, and when they are made Koesuth can boast the best court room in the state. Thompson, the Sioux City engine man, came last week and took the engine sent on for the electric light plant home. He looked over the specifications and frankly admitted that his engine did not meet them. He did not say whether he intended to send in another engine or not. The city will wait a reasonable time for Bigelpw to get an enerine here, and then will go ahead without him, notifying his bondsmen again. City Attorney Bonar is of the opinion that the city cannot do this until Bigelow gets his other work done, and qui ts. This will be in a week or ten days. The boilers are about set. not likely that this will be made inside of two months. No plans are being made to go beyond Algona, and if the line is ever run further north It will be later. Mr. Call says the plans are drawn for the Algona station, and that it will be an ornament to the town. Col. Stedman Is sick at present, and as soon us he is able he will go to California for a few weeks. B. W. Haggard and G. W. Skinner of Bancroft held some town property together. A contract for a lot was made out to Holmgreen and Mr. Hag- gnrd's name was signed. Holmgreen sued Mr. Haggard last week for a deed, and Mr. Haggard declared that ho never signed the contract, but that Skinner had forged his name. The Imitation was very clever, but several witnesses testified' that they did not think it was Mr. Haggard's signature, and the court so held. The attorneys for Holmgreen were Swotting and Barsalou, Clarke & Cohenour for Haggard. Skinner beats Holmgreen out of some $200. It is now Samson & Grose in the abstract business and our genial county clerk has given up his wood contract. Mr. Grose takes a half interest in the land and abstract office, and becomes permanently settled in business in Algona. The new firm is a very strong one and will build up a prosperous business. They know the county, are pleasant and reliable men to deal with, have one of tho best sets of abstract hooks in lown. and are enterprising. Mrs. Grose, who made so many friends in tho clerk's office, will assist in tho work and make out the daily reports of papers filed in the recorder's offlce, Geo. M. Bailey turning over his list of customers. Outside laundries are just at present making a special effort to work up trade in Algona, which makes it timo- ly to refer to tho fact that Algona has one of the best laundries in tho state. Mr. McCombhasall tho improved appliances for doing good work, he is attentive to his business, obliging, and careful. THE UPPER DES MOINES has patronized them all and it knows that just as good laundryinp is done in Algona as is done anywhere, in fact it has had less occasion to kick on the service hero than it over has had with outside work. There seems to bo a disposition with the new year to patronize home institutions and a good place to begin is with tho home laundry, for it is a valuable institution to tho town and merits all tho patronage tho people can extend to it. Happy I want you all to be happy, and I know you will be if you buy your groceries from me during the year 1899. James Patterson ' ZBlocDs: MONEY to loan at 6 per cent, interest. Optional payments.
