No Material Change in the Time at Algona—Public Will Like the New Arrangement. It is now certain that the new through train from St. Paul to Des Moines will go on next Monday. All the difficulties in arranging a time table have been overcome, and the full schedule will be in Agent Vesper's hands tomorrow or Friday. The through trains will replace the present mail trains and will paas Algona at substantially the same time the present trains do. The train from Des Moines will go through here at about 2:30 p. m. arriving at St. Paul about 8:00 in the evening. It will leave Des Moines at 9:30 or late in the morning and will bring the Chicago papers from Ames as at present. The train south will leave St. Paul passing Algona about 2 o'clock, and reaching Des Moines at 6:30. It will connect at Ames with the Denver special for the west, reaching 1 Omaha in the early evening. The only otherchangein the present schedule that is known, is the morning train south. This will become an acco- modation .train from Elinors to Grove and'will go through Algona an hour earlier than it does now. It will connect at Eagle Grove for Des Moines as at present. Supt. Hodge has been at work for two years to get this through train service arranged and much credit is due to him for putting Algona on the main line. _ Some Northwestern Changes. The division north of Boone was de- vided last week owing to the new line from Burt to Sanborn. Supt. Hodge will have control of the line from Tama City to Sanborn, while the line_ from Jewell Junction west is made into a separate division.

Judge Quarton has been holding an adjourned term of court to settle on how to meet the supreme court decision that Mrs. Lund is entitled to take her dower interest. The lands have all been sold, and the question is what her rights nre now. The lawyers argued the matter yesterday. It is a very complicated question. Mr. and Mrs. D. Rice are now comfortably located in their Algona home, prepared to take life a little easier. They located on their farm In Plum Creek township In 1867 and their absence will be missed by many old time neighbors. Their oldest daughter, Mrs. Geo. Pangborn, is down from Buffalo Center visiting them.

A small audience, comparatively, turned out for the Andrews Opera company, but enjoyed a fine evening of grand opera. Neither George nor Ed.

Seely, watchman; Mr. Young, sentry; Lott'io Thompson, correspondent. Kanawha is getting to the front with vigor. The latest is a Yeoman lodge which J. V. Wickler is now organizing. Mr. Wlcklor has been very successful for the Yeomen hereabouts, having started flourishing lodges in Hobart and Algona recently. The Yeomen are a good lot and they have a good order, which isgrowing rapidly. Kanawha will be in luck to get a flourishing lodge to start out with. The city and the Bigelow estate have agreed on a settlement of the electric light deal. Mr. Curtiss, who put in a claim of $800 for extras, throws it all off and the city will not insist on damages for the delay in getting the plant in. The city pays in all $200 less than the original contract on account of the engine frame, and gets considerable more line than at first planned. The total cost of the plant is $11,760. It is probable that Algona has the best plant over put in for the money in the state. Dr. Day's theme for discourse at the Methodist church next Sunday morning will be The Manliness of Christ.
