ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, MAHCH 29, 1899, NO OTHER TOWN tlEE IT, SitHfttioh of Titonka, with Two Postofflces, After All. The Buffalo Fork fostofflce Moved to the New Town—Mattel* Seems Still tJnscttled. Titonka presents a situation that is .Unique, to say the least of it. After all the talk about its having two postofflcesinpros pect, then of the matter being disposed of so that Uncle Sam would have but one agent there, it seems after all that she is really in possession of two establishments In the postofflce line. tahn Falk is the Buffalo Fork postmaster. He was in Algona Monday, and a representative of this paper interviewed him on the matter. He was apparently averse to talking until after being assured that his questioner was not employed in the government secret service. Then he said that some time ago ho sent to the department a petition of the patrons of his office asking to have It moved three fourths of a mile northwest of its'then location. There being no apparent objection to its removal the request was grunted. Asked if he mentioned the fact in his petition that the removal would place It at Titonka, his memory seemed clouded on that point. He said there wasn't much of a town there at that time any way—only three or four buildings. Well, to make a long story short, Mr Falk got his building on skids a week ago Saturday and moved it, postofflce and all, over to Titonka, where he has set up a second establishment and is receiving the Buffalo Fork mail, which is carried by team from Burl. How long it will bo continued at that point is a question that Mr. Falk is evidently interested in. Ho admitted, during the conversation, that ho had a recent letter from the department to the effect that perhaps it would simplify matters if he would move his postofflce back to its old location, but he seemed undecided what course to pursue. He is out about $300, so he said, if ho has to move back. He is a pooi- man, and the loss will fall heavily upon him; but really its seems as though ho might have acted more, wisely if he had taken better counsel than ho appears to have been guided by. Uaiicrofl John Clausseu is putting up a building at the crossing, and will serve lunch and other refreshments to the waiting passengers. Arthur Clarke has bought an interest in the Citizens' bank of Havelock, and will hereafter put in his time handling the long green instead of produce. A card from Sam Davison, received the other day, was written while on the way with his hospital corps to Savannah, the flrs^step in their move to Cuba, for which destination they are under orders. The committee on the parochial school wore not satisfied'with the bids submitted and will reopen the matter and ask the contractors to submit new figures. It will be a good contract for the one securing it. At an adjourned session of ttie council Wednesday evening, it was decided to abolish the office of deputy marshal, which has been held by Harry Thill, as night watch, heretofore. If we have a night watch now he will have to be paid by private subscrip- , tion by the merchants. The significant telegram was received from Ed. Bircher, at Now Orleans, Tuesday, "Leave here today with live horses." The closing of the race meeting at that point would naturally throw a lot of good horses on the market at a reason able figure, and evidently E. P. has taken advantage of the fact to augment his already good string with some new speed. Whltteinore Champion. Whittomore is the only town we know of which has not got a railroad coming in this summer on paper. Mrs. Felling organized lodges of Royal Neighbors in Estherville and Superior last week with 59 and 28 members respectively She goes to Terrall this week. Corporal Geo. Munch of the 15th Minnesota will be home in a few weeks, as that regiment will be mustered out next Monday. This will be the return of Whitte- moro's last soldier, with the exception of Sophus Richards. G. E. Boyle sold the Lillibridgo section south of town this week for $34,000 to Valentino Wallace of Marshall county. The half section with improvements on it brought $43 per acre and the unimproved half went for $33 per acre. Mr. Wallace will move onto the farm. COKHESPONDKXCB.

Nels Anderson was down to Algona last Friday and proved up on his homestead, the southeast quarter of the southwest quarter of section one in Swea township.

At Buffalo Center a posse surrounded a, barn in which a supposed bprge thief had entered and found when they opened the door that Abbey had simply tafcen quarters for the night. At other places he scares women and children by his prowling around- The papers say he has a good deal of means but we think they are In error. is to be motfed of, and a brick 23x60 will go op immediately, vrudHealey succeeded in buying a strip off the north of Win.

Hay of New York, one of the organizers in the National Woman Suffrage association, held a meeting in the court house on Tuesday evening, March 21. An attentive but not a large audience was present to hoar her. Mrs. Edgar Butler, the presiding officer, in .a very pleasant way first introduced Rev. Mr. Suckow, who proceeded to make a plain and candid statement of his position. He favors woman's equality socially, in the church, and in the state, and thinks the trend of civilization is towards woman's political equality. Miss Hay followed Roy. Mr. Suckow and went on to give a short summary of the woman suffrage movement from the time of its call for a first public meeting in Seneca Falls, N. Y., a little more thtn fifty years ago. Hiss Hay spoke of the advance made. Now four states have full suffrage, 27 states have school suffrage, and women in all our country show an awakened interest in matters per taining to the good of the home and the country. Perhaps no words have received heartier praise than those of Dr. David Starr Jordan, president of Leland Stanford university in California, when ho said recently: "In no function of government are women so vitally interested as in the right administration of the public schools. * * * The interest of women in school affairs is much more vital than that of men for the school itself is an extension of the homo, and belongs in large degree to woman's province. This interest dies out if there is no way of working it into action To give life to it, wo must allow woman a voice in school inuuugeinent; to do this is to strengthen and intensify her interest in the schools. This means in time the freeing of our schools from incompetent teachers and the raising of the standard of intelligence and public interest among women themselves." Dr. Martin Kellogg, president of the state university of California, also says: "I heartily approve the bill authorizing women to vote at school elections." It does not need a prophet's vision, at the present time, to read the signs of the times. When in the late session of the Illinois legislature the bill was passed appropriating $9,000 for the erection of a statue—either in bronze or marble—to the memory of Frances E. Willard, the statue to be placed in Statuary Hall in the national capitol at Washington, it was a step far in advance of what has seemed the settled policy of our country. To be sure this decision was not reached without some discussion. It was said by some that " it would be a violation of precedent to have a woman's statue there, and that it would have to be decided by congress." But the federal bill was appealed to: " Sec. 2. And be It further enacted * * * And the president Is hereby authorized to Invite each and all the states to provide and furnish statues, In marble or bronze, not exceeding two In number for each state, of deceased per sons who have been citizens thereof, and Illustrious for their historic renown or from distinguished civic or military services, such as each state shall determine to be worthy of this national commemoration, and when so furnished the same shall be placed In the old hall of the house of representatives In the capitol of the United States, which Is hereby set apart, or so much thereof as may be necessary, as a national Statuary Hall, for the purposes here" Statutes, Thli Our Easter Opening comes on March 31 and and April i.

For great Illinois places her greatest of statesmen, Abraham Lincoln, and her most eminent philanthropist, Frances E. Willard, upon this high pedestal. Now let New York or Massachusetts hold a. place sacred to the memory of Susan B. Anthony, the woman most illustrious in all states as the exalter of womanhood. Already in the magnificent New York state capitol at Albany, five women of national fame have received the honor to have their heads carved in the stone balustrade which surmounts the grand staircase in this beautiful building. These women are Harriet Beeoher Btowe, Clara Barton, Susan B. Anthony Frances E. Willard, and Molly Pitcher. The tide of progress does not go backward, and the world does well to honor the brave women who in any age or nation have been ready to exalt and to illuminate the principles which give honor and dignity to humanity. Miss Hay gave a very pleasant talk on Tuesday afternoon to a number of ladies gathered at the home of Mrs. Ingham, and a few names were added to the political equality club. Miss Hay is an interesting and convincing speaker and those who hear her once will not m'.ss the opportunity, when it comes, to hear her again. C. A. I. GRASS LEASES. DANSON & BUTLER, LAW. LOANS.
