It was fortunate for the parties putting in the electric light plant that they had snow on which to slip the engine down from the depot. It was thus done for half what the expense would have been on wheels. The road was perfect as a piece of ice, and A. F. Dailey's little mules pulled half the fly wheel at one load—over 6,000 pounds. It .is figured out by someone that our long winter and late snow fall have all been in accordance with the eternal fitness of things—that is to say, planned with a view to giving time for that engine to get here and be hauled down on a enow road. That explanation may not be satisfactory to some, but it is the only one so far advanced in behalf of the' weather. If it is correct, the weather man can now proceed to bring on his etherial mildness. All Eyes on Algoua. If the plans for building the hotel whioh is now assured had failed to materialize, another would have been built. A gentleman from Peoria, 111., was here not long ago, and has been watching the progress of events in Algona with much interest. His proposition was to put up a hotel building on the corner now occupied by The A very, and he had sketches made of the building he had in view. It would have been smaller than the one we are to get, but would, have been modern in all respects. The cost would have been $13,000, and would have gone up as an investment, without any bonus. All eyes are on Algona just now. They Were Not Lost! A friend over in Irvington township tells this paper about a jolly load of eight Algonians who were out for a sleigh' ride one night last week, and pulled in at his place about 10 o'clock at night. The fact that the family had all retired for the night was not a factor iri the case-^-they had to get up just the same, whioh they did cheerfully and 'entertained their visitors until 3 o'clock in the morning. The aforesaid sleighing party will probably always insist that they were not lost- nothing of that kind; they simply wanted ta make "Sol." get up and play the part of host. He says he has no kick coming. For a Wholesale Grocery. F, D. Calkins is down from Blue Earth City. He hasn't forgotten that Algona is a mighty pleasant place to live, and is now looking over the field with a view to putting in a wholesale grocery house here. The opportunity is ripe for just such an enterprise here, and Mr. Calkins would be a good man to push it along. He offers to take one-half or a less amount of the stock, and desires to have Algona peonle financially interested with him. This is a chance for a paying Investment, and people with idle money might see him with advantage to themselves. "Old Man Potter." O. A. Potter of Cresco ex pressed himself as delighted with the call his friends made him one night last week, but he enters a vigorous protest against the term used by a correspondent who called him "Old Man Potter." He says he may be old, but he doesn't feel that way, and intimated something about getting after the aforesaid writer with a sharp stick or something more persuasive. He still answers promptly to " Put," but " Old Man Potter" is too much. It don't go. We suggest a 24- foot ring and stuffed clubs. Snaps for Easter. Our wide ribbons will be on sale Friday and Saturday for 25 cenls a yard. GEO. L. GALBRAITH.

The Advent meetings are closed for a week, the pastor in charge being called home again by sickness in his family. The supervisors meet next Monday in regular session. The bids for doctoring the county poor will be received at this meeting. Friday's warm spell caught cold, and in doing so was simply keeping in touch with the average citizen. It is the popular thing nowadays. On Tuesday and Wednesday next the baking contest among the little folks takes place at Doxsee's. The winner gets a beautiful Buck's range. An item in the daily papers notes the fact that our townsman, Wra. H. Campbell, has been granted a pension of $12 a month. It will come handy in his case. Chas. Graph starts right with the U. D. M. for a weekly visitor. He has rented a farm a mile south of the W. W. Jones place, and is now his own landlord. M. Z. Groye & Son's grocery is now located in the Rowe restaurant building, to which place it was moved Monday. It is the intention to close out the stock.

Jenkinson sold two more short-horn bull calves Monday—one four months old to L. J. Newel of Fenton for $60, and one 12 days old to Peter Weisbrod of Feriton for $50. That is the kind of stock to raise. Perry Burlingame says he is sure he would be delighted to have a station of the Iowa Central on his farm, but if it is such a good thing he is perfectly willing some, of his neighbors should enjoy it. Perry is'generous to a fault. The Court of Honor had a very pleasant entertainment at Odd Fellows' hall Monday night. The program consisted of literary and musical features, and wound up with a banquet, all of which were voted the biggest kind of a success. The engine and 13,000 pound fly wheel are in place at the light plant, and an expert will be here in a day or two for the purpose of putting on the finishing touches.

There they stopped to catch their breath, and when they tried to start it again they were unable to move it a peg. It was a big load, even for four horses. Rev. E. P. Barllett of Des Moines, state secretary of the Iowa Baptist state convention, will preach at the Baptist church next Sunday. Special Easter music will be provided, anfl the pastor will administer the ordinance of baptism at the close of the evening service. The new town of Luzon on the Iowa Central in Amsterdam township is to have two banks among its first improvements. One gentleman has already applied to Geo. C. Call for a lot to build on, and the town is not yet platted. He says he will put in a bank with $25,000 capital. There is little to be said In the way of railroad news this week. Geo. C. Call is authority for the statement that the Iowa Central will be in Algona by Aug. 1 next. Surveyors are expected here today or tomorrow to select a location for the depot. Just where that will be is the problem just new. The city schools are out for the spring vacation of one week. During this time Prof. Spencer will go to Alden for a short visit, Miss Bright to Minneapolis, Miss Essex toDosMoinos, Prof. Meeker to Ames, and Miss Cullaton to Indiana. Meantime the small boy is abroad in the land and the world is his. John Dillon had a full house Wednesday night, as he always does in Algona, and he was just as full of bright sayings as ever. It is not easy to follow the plot—if there is any—in "The Road to Seltzerville," but that IB a small matter. The people went to see Dillon, and all were delighted with the entertainment. Chas. Hanna was down from Burt township last Thursday, and was an agreeable caller at this office. He owns n. splendid farm and is getting on in fine shape, and for that reason wo argued the point with him about selling out and going after Minnesota cheap land, which he has been talking about doing. Capt. Morse of Compauy F is preparing to organize a company of cadets, the ages to range from 16 to 18 years. He hopes to got at least 50 names enrolled. It ought not to be difficult to get that many vigorous young fellows to join. They would be useful in many ways to Company F, and would help out wonderfully on dress parade. The sheriff's sale, of the Callamin equities in Kossuth county farms took place at the court house last Saturday. It was merely perfunctory, those upon whose titles there was a cloud bidding in the land themselves. The total cost to each for the removal of the cloud was only $2.GO, and is cheap compared with what it would have cost to fight it single-handed. A new and unique ad. of Hall & Vesper appears in the Burt Monitor of last week calling attention to the merits of certain dyes handled by that firm by attaching a sample showing results obtained, It evidently necessitated an increased postal rate, which indicates their faith in the merit of the goods handled as well as In the efficacy of judicious advertising. At the Slusser & Scherer foundry and machine shop is being made a new kind of rotary steam engine. It is the invention of a man at Garner named Boutilier, who thinks he has something that is going to be a wonder in the motive power line. Our local shop has done him a nice piece of work, and it will be no fault of theirs if it does not meet the inventor's expectations. Chas. Coan, now at Des Moines in the office of C. E. Eastman, the architect, is the man who really made the sketches for the new hotel to be built by Mr. Durdall. He has already become so proficient in the business that the work of making the sketches was left entirely to him, and his ability is clearly shown in the result. All will be glad to note the progress he is making. Prof. Spencer has issued the program for the Northwestern Iowa Teachers' association, to be held in Algona on May 4, 5 and 0. It is a neat pamphlet of 24 pages, and contains, beside the regular programs of work for each day, illustrations of the new Methodist church, the court house, the two school buildings now in use, and the one" to be erected. The title page, by David Purvis, shows skill as an artist. The reporter interviewed several farmers Saturday, and the prevailing opinion among them seems to be that fully one-third of the corn crop of this county was caught by the heavy snow storm early in the season, and has been in the field since that time. This will mean a considerable loss in many cases, though there is a substantial agreement that the crop is by no means totally ruined, as it will make fairly good feed even though it has been under the snow for four months or more.
