WPEK DUB MOINES: ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 7, 1899, have never made much noise about the price and quality of our ...... SHOES but, in a quiet way, we manage to sell a great many pairs of shoes during the year* WHY? Becau&e the following prices sell them: Ladies' kid, lace, vesting top, black and tan, worth $4.00, at Ladies' Dongola polish, worth $2.00, at., $2.50 1.25 1.40 1.00 2.00 Chrischilles & Herbst. Misses' Vici Kid, black and tan, lace and button, worth $1.7$, at....» Children's " Daysee" school shoe, worth $1.50, at Men's Satin Calf, lace Or congress, worth $2.50, at WHO WAS THE SLEEPER? Dr. Morse Tells a Story Tlint Calls for Explanation. Dr. Morse stands sorely in need of help to figure out how It happened. Here is the story as he tells It himself: He went home from council meeting late Monday night, and, Mrs. Morse being away and no one about the house, he "turned in" without ceremony, looking neither to the right nor to the left, for he was weary from a long session of the city fathers. He avers that he slept well, and was free from those annoying dreams that sometimes beset even*so good a man as he. He has been looking for his father from Des Moines for a day or two, so when he awakened about 6 o'clock in the morning and saw a man sleeping on the sofa near by, and so wrapped in the embrace of Morpheus that he could distinctly hear the heavy breathing, he made a mental calculation that hisj paternal ancestor had arrived in the night and gone to the house and to bed without waiting for him to come. So the doctor turned over,, took another nap, and a little later arose, only to discover that the man he had seen was gone. Diligent search yesterday morning failed to disclore his father's presence in this city, so he is convinced that it was not he whom ho saw steeping so comfortably on the sofa. But there is still a lingering curiosity in his mind to know whom he did see. He is sure he was not dreaming and equally sure that the story he tells is the solemn truth. Further developments will be awaited with much interest. THIS is the time to get a fan. We have a nice line of the empire fans, and palm leaves of all kinds. GEO. L.

Service at the Presbyterian church at the usual hours. Late heavy rains have raised the river considerably. Doxsee's "ad." is new this week—in fact it is always fresh. The city council has revoked the plumber's license of Ed. Sohrader. A jeweler from Chicago will put a stock in the R. H. Miller drue store soon. A public dance will be given by Co. F at the armory oh June 16. All are invited. ' On account of the graduating exercises the social union ts postponed till next week. An adjourned session of the district court begins next Monday, Judge Quarton presiding. If you are not bald-headed and don't want to be, see what R. H. Miller says in his ad. this week. Under one of Galbraith's umbrellas you can keep dry in this rainy season. See about it in his ad. Chrischilles & Herbst talk about shoes this week in their ad. It will pay to see their stock. The Brownell shoe store always has something new In the shoe line. Note their "ad. "this week. The Northwestern folks have had repair men at work on their bridge over the Milwaukee tracks for some days. Kraft's clothjtig is of the good kind, and the price's they quote show that nothing Is the matter with them, either. A. A. Sifert has been elected principal of the Ireton schools. He has been at Buffalo Center for some time, und is a successful teacher. Trains on both roads have been behind time the past few days on account of t,ho heavy rains, which have done damage to the road beds. The light plant has been run a week under the management of tbeadmistra- tor of the Bigelow estate. Now the city employes are handling it again. The races at Bancroft begin tomorrow, and several people from Algona will go. E. P. Bircher's horses won good money at Marshalltown last week. E. S. Salisbury's improvements on his house which he begun last full are now being completed, and he will soon have a comfortable and commodious home. There are now excursions on the railroads the first and third Tuesdays of every month, with return permissible on nny day up to the limit, which is 21 days. The new town Kanawlm had its first fire last week, a shoe shop and contents being destroyed. The loss was upwnrds of $100. The origin of the fire seems to be unknown. Lightning struck and injured the house of Mr. Eden, a farmer living near Titonka, and E. Blnckford; secretary of the county mutual, wont over Monday to adjust the loss. Rev. Suckow goes to Garner tomorrow to deliver an address at the laying of the corner stone of the new Hancock county court house. He will give them an addresq worth listening to. Algona seems too busy taking care of its spring boom to give any heed to a celebration of the Fourth this year. Less than a month now remains, and the time is short in which to set the ball in motion. The machinery in the new laundry is about all in place, and will be started before very long. Mr. McComb has an absolutely up-to-date plant—in fact we doubt if there is a better one to be found in the state. Workmen are tearing out the inside partitions of the brick block at the Milwaukee depot, and when it Is re- plastered and in other ways repaired Mr. Calkins will have a fine place for his wholesale grocery. The military company voted last Thursday for a third major for the 52d regiment. P. O. Refsel of Emmetsburg and W. A. Kirk of Sioux City were the -candidates, and the latter won by a small majority. The Andrews Opera company is to bo at the opera house this evening. They have been often in Algonu, and show-going people always find pleasure in listening to them. They have an entirely new opera this time. The wisdom of using gravel and lots of it on the streets is shown in the fact that after some of the heaviest rains we have had this spring our graveled streets are dry and the wheeling good when mud is the rule everywhere else. A car load of polos has arrived for the city telephone exchange, and they will be used in raising the wires so they will not be affected by the electric light wires. The poles run from 25 to 50 feet in length, and are of size accordingly. The report which was current last week that the Lotts Creek church had been blown down during a wind storm proved happily to be untrue. A telephone message to Uiis paper from there said that no damage was done by the storm. B. D'. Smith and others of the new telephone company were in Algona yesterday. He says they will run their line into Algona from Sexton, and will be here just as soon as the work can be done. They are also running a, line to Kanawha. J. F. Nicoulin is erecting a store building at Kanawha, the new town on the Iowa Central in Hancock county, and has it nearly completed. It is to occupied by Mr. Williams from Buffalo Center, who puts a newspaper in at that place. The city telephone exchange is soon to be removed to rooms in the rear of the Boston block, up stairs. They get a suite of three rooms there, which are pleasant in all respects. After the' re- .movttl Geo. M. Bailey will have his old office alone, This office was pleased to receive a call from Rev. Zimmerman, father of Mrs. G. M. Johnson, last Saturday. He was once a resident of the county, living in lower Irvingtpp, and is well remembered by the old settlers. He npw resides at Scrantpn, Iowa, He is 87. of age, but quite vigorous, reads ordinary newspaper print without glasses. He thinks of remaining here for some weeks. Four Lotts Creek farmers, W. Meyers, Wm. Behrends, Will Krepke, and Albert Olum, started yesterday for Oklahoma to look at that country. They may purchase land there, but we predict they will return thinking Kossuth county is good enough. • Henry Brass of Fenton, on Section 20, was a pleasant caller fast Friday. He has prospered at farming so well that he has sold part of his land and la enjoying the fruits of his hard labor. Unlike many farmers who have become well-to-do, be prefers to slay on the farm to moving into town. It is practically settled that F. F. Avery of the Avery house will be the landlord of the new hotel being erected by Mr. Durdall. He has during his residence here shown himself a thoroughly capable hotel man, and there is reason to believe that he will handle the new hotel to the satisfaction of all concerned. The English sparrows are about the biggest nuisance in the town. They have Increased rapidly during the past year or two, and now they are everywhere, thicker than the proverbial " flees on a dog." It would be a good plan to offer a premium of a cent a head on them, and let tho small boy get In his deadly work. C. E. Heise met with a painful accident Monday by being thrown from the rear platform of the 'bus, on which he was riding; In attempting to alight he tell* and struck on his head with such force as to render him unconscious for over an hour. Ho is better now, however, and all will hope that ho has not sustained serious injury. The supervisors made an informal inspection of the electric lights in tho court room last evening, and tho conclusion was reached that more lights will bo needed to give the proper service. This is true more notably in the front part of the room over the judge's desk, where they decided to put clusters of three lights whore there Is now but one. Here is an Item from the Burt Monitor that possesses local significance and will be of in'.erest to Algona people: Cashier C. D. Smith will put his homo, the former D. Palno house, in the hands of the painters and decorators and it will be fitted for occupancy after H double June wedding in Algona. Mr. Smith will have a pleasant and comfortable home. Fire destroyed the Frank Winkel slaughter house, south of tho fail- ground, Monday. The cause is not definitely known, though it is supposed to have been accidental. His man built a fire to try out some tallow, and had to come up town for something, leaving no one in charge. Mr. WinkePs loss is $400 or $500, with no insurance. He will rebuild at onco. A copy of THE UPPER DES MOINES of date June 9, 1897, is wanted at this office very much—so much so that we will give two dollars for one to the first person who brings it. There i» a special reason for desiring a copy of the date named, so we make the price large enough to be attractive. Hunt over your waste papers, find a copy of June 9, 1897, bring it to this office and receive your reward. The county supervisors have been in session since Monday. Their work so far this session luis been almost wholly confined to bridge and grade work, the rains having washed out many of the approaches to tho county bridges, or at least so injured them that extensive repairs are necessary. The board appointed W. W. Finn of Wesley and M. P. Haggard as the committee to check up and settle with the treasurer and auditor. The session will not end before tomorrow. Tho city authorities desire attention called once more to the ordinance whice provides for lamps on bicycles after sundown. There are still a few bicyclists who seem to have forgotten this city regulation, and this notice is for the purpose of giving them one morn chance, as hereafter arrests for violation of the ordinance will bo made promptly and without reference to whom it may be. The night police has orders to this effect, so it behooves violators to keep a sharp lookout for Uncle John Sweitzer, Justice Raymond heard a case from Irvington last Saturday. Assault and battery on a son of Lafe Griffin by the school teacher, W. J. Ballard, was charged. It seems the teacher used a base ball bat with which to separate the Griffin boy from another, with whom ho was engaged in a scuillo, and in doing so hurt the boy, though not severely. It is hardly probable that anybody will contend that the use of the ball bat was necessary to separate the boys, but as no malice was shown to exist the defendant was discharged. When the electric lights suddenly went out one night last week at J0:30 we know of one customer who groped his way about in the dark until he resurrected an old oil lamp with which to go to bed by. No doubt there were others in the same fix. Tho trouble was found the next day to be with a telegraph wire near the Northwestern depot which the wind had blown down, and it fell across both light wires, thus causing what the boys at the plant call a "short circuit." We know it was too short for us, however other people may have viewed it. No damage was done at the plant, which Is amply protected against just such occurrences. One of the prominent features of the Andrews Opera company, which comes to the opera house for one performance tonight, is its chorus, which tho press of the country is unanimous in praise of. They were carefully selected as to voice and appearance, and have been carefully trained by the conductor, Max Winne, a graduate of Leipsic, and of 18 years' experience in the business. In the operas Martha, Caralleria Rus- ticana, and Pirates of Penzance, the chorus has some excellent work which seldom fails to win them hearty encores. In the matter of costumes' and accessories the company is adequately equipped. Seats are now selling fast a,nd those desiring choice locations should make application early.
