M- offloe> The Falling of the Thermometer W <SrB promptly filled-30 is our telephone number. F. S. NORTON, TheLumberuiau. The religious census of Algona has been completed. It was taken last week with considerable care and is probably as accurate as such a census can be made. Many do not care to answer all the questions that can be asked about their religious beliefs and practices, and certainly a considerable number must have claimed to be church goers who do not get out once in six months. The tabulated statement was read by P. C. Fan- at a meeting called at the Presbyterian church Sunday afternoon, and after it was read a general discussion followed. There were found to be 586 families in Algona. OC these 171 preferred the Method- Baptist, 48 the Presbyterian, 50 the batho® lie, 40 the Lutheran, 15 the Episcopal, nine the Christian, eight the Adventist, three the Universalist, two Unitarian, four Christian Science, two Spiritualist, 35 no choice. There were found to be 2,001 people over five years of ago. Of these 773 attend Sunday school, 188 being over 21 years of age. leaving 589 children, There were 1,873 claming to attend church, 944 professing Christians. Twenty-five families were found without bibles. There were 144 families holding family worship. The first speaker was Rev. Ollieren- shaw, who discussed the statistics on family worship. He said when he came to Algona he heard of the town as an intellectual center, and judging from its newspapers he was early satisfied that it was a very intelligent community. But he was afraid he could not say as much for its piety. He said the family altar is the fountain source of piety. If children do not see worship in the home they will never be deeply affected by it in the church. He spoke of his own early life and urged upon parents to open and close the day with acknowledgement of divine assistance, haying in view the religious life of the rising generation. Rev. Stiles took up the matter of church attendance and very frankly said he did not believe there were 1,373 people in Algona who attend church. The other pastors agreed with him, and this part of the statistics was regarded as highly colored. He then read some rules for killing a church, which were amusing and which pointed their own moral. Rev. Suckow discussed visiting. All of the census takers had met the complaint that pastors and church members don't visit enough. He said he had heard this complaint ever since he had began the ministry. He thought that it was based on social rather than religious considerations. Still he thought church members of ten neglected this means of reaching their neighbors, and that visiting by church members was often more effective than visits by the pastor. He thought denominational lines had often made social interchange ineffective, and he said he was glad that in Algona the churches were co-operating towards larger general results. Rev. Day talked on the new home department work. It seems that a, plan is adopted by which families which cannot attend Sunday school agree to devote a certain time each day to reading the lessions at home. He called this the Chautauqua movement among Sunday schools, and thought it would do much to stimulate interest in the work among people whose duties kept them at home. % All the speakers were enthusiastic for a crusade, which they hope the evangelist will successfully conduct during the coming weeks. They hope that the next religious census in Algona will show up better. MEETINGS.

Bailey on "Expansion." Britt Tribune: There is much speculation as to the politics of Dewey. We don't care what they are, we hope he is a democrat and a pop if it will make them feel any better, but he can just whelt the hind sights of! from any thing he undertakes. He cuts the cable first and then goes in and licks 'em. He isn't blowing around with a swelled head about what he did or could do, but he is ready to Uok anybody a.nd anything some, and finish the job after retiring a short time for breakfast. Some of the democrats are figuring on Bryan and Dewey for 1900. Fiddle! Couldn't stand Billie's wind puddings for a week; besides Dewey is an expansionist; he expanded six small flags that floated from the forepeak of his vessels until they covered the whole Philippine group. And thus expanded the estimation in which Americans are held until it is a great big idea in the heads of some very large potentates— as well as smaller ones—now, -where it was an undefined "surmise" a year ago. Our Uncle Samuel wasn't considered very much pumkins except on land, and quite a piece inland at that. The first of last May was a great day for expansion. Old glory is longer, wider and brighter than it ever was. A Yankee sailor now ranks with a European prince, and Dewey outranks the whole caboodle, king, queen and jack. And Bryan ain't so big either. Just windy, and somewhat filled with prunes. It wouldn't make a good team at all. TALKINQ HOTEL. O. B. Durdall's Proposition Sets tlio Ball Ho Hint-; and a Now Hotel IB Likely To Result. During the week since Mr. O. B. Durdall's proposition to build a new hotel was published in THE UPPER DES MOINES the matter has been much discussed, and already proposals are being made. The matter is likely to come to a head soon, for Mr. Durdall says he wants to get plans at once, if he is to build, and have work begin as spring opens. He will complete the building by Sept. 1. He has offered the same proposition to a committee who want the hotel to be put further east that he has to the men interested in the corner west of the Kossuth County State bank. These men have in view the old Ford corner, owned by G. L. Galbraith, and it is not impossible that they will get a site for him there. Whichever location is tendered first he will build on. Mr. Durdall reaffirms his proposal as published last week, and says that he will have plans at once for a $20,000 hotel if the lots are secured, and that he will have the building ready for business by Sept. 1. Some action will undoubtedly be taken this week. NOTED SPORTS WILL BE HERE. May 33-4-5 Is Set for the Meeting of tlio State Sportsmen's Association —A Field Day for Algoua. The date of the annual meeting of the state sportsmen's association has been fixed.. It is May 23-4-5. At that time -all the noted gun shots in the United States will gather at Algona, and for three days contest for the various cups and prizes that are offered at the state association meetings. This is the first time the state association has met in this part of the state, and the event will be a notable one. The local committee having the arrangements in charge is John G. Smith, Guy L. Taylor, and C. T. Chubb. They will undoubtedly choose the grounds south of town if they can be had. A building will be built for the shooters and. the traps will have a covered trench behind them for the boys who set them, so that rain will not interfere with the sport. Fully 25,000 targets will be used, beside the live bird matches. Three cups are up, the team cup that was held in Algona one year by Smith and Durant, the L. C. Smith cup, and another. It is entirely likely also that private matches between the crack shots will form part of the program. Gilbert, Grimm, Budd, and all the western and southern champions will be here besides a number of the leading eastern shooters. This is another important meeting for Algona and comes at a time when Algona will be in good trim to entertain visitors. Nothing Better to be had for the money Than The Coffee that we handle. Langdon & Hudson. Bailey Endorses Trlfjg. Bailey says Joe Trigg, who will conduct the Kossuth farmers' institute, has many good ideas. For instance, he has had a pair of green spectacles made for his family horse and is fattening him on rye straw. The horse thinks it is green clover. PERSONAL MOVEMENTS.

Miss Zoa Wartmau was also on the program but was unable to attend. Wai. Piukerton, a brother of Mrs. Frank Nicoulin and a member of the South Dakota legislature, is coming to Algoua this week for a visit. Ho lived In Algona one winter many years ago.
