R, H, MM- and jeweler, iocAi The opening club dance comes tomorrow night, This has been the best fall for corn husking and plowing the county hits had in years. Rev. Fred, L. Farr ha! been appointed pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church at f itonka. The Wtnkel ice house is being enlarged to hold 400 tons more ice. The supply ran out this season. Frank Nlcoulin went to Blsmark, N. D., yesterday with parties from Armstrong and Guthrfe Center. Frank, "Tug" Wilson's little boy, fell Monday in a hay mow and broke his arm. Dr. Keneficlc set it. Father Erdtnan of St. Benedict was in town yesterday. He says the new parochial school building Is nearly enclosed. Peter Winkel has been up north on his annual hunt. He bagged some less than 300 birds, but did not take after big game. The out rate to Chicago of $9.06 continues and is figured on all tickets east. It is due to a fight between St. Paul and Chicago. W. S. Creed has rented the Jenks hotel at Ledyard and moves today to take charge of it. He has been run- a restaurant in Algona, The new switch board for the telephone office has come and the exchange will be moved ROOD. It is a big improvement over the old one. The Bradley & Nicoulin shops have a big order for drays, and are planning to go into the manufacture extensively. They will put in an engine and other machinery. People wanting logo to Estherville can now go to the crossing and then west on the Burlington. They will leave Algona at 1:55 and got to Estherville at 6 o'clock. Charlie Nolte has left the Gllmore grocery and gone into the Durdull clothing store. Mr. Durdall finds his time so taken up by outside matters that he Is adding a new hand. Ed: Patterson came home from Minnesota yesterday. He says 20,000 bushels of wheat were marketted at Sisseton the day he was there. He saw 70 teams at one time waiting to unload. A hundred or more took advantage of She excursion to Kanawha Sunday and saw a good, healthy young town. Geo. C. Call attended to the wants of the visitors. Kanawha is booming right along. Company P has added a shooting gallery to its armory and invites the public to enjoy the sport, after attending to certain preliminary details in the way of a small deposit. The armory is a pleasant resort. Rev. Suclcow goes this week to Sioux City to assist in some revival meetings being hold there in Rov. Marc Darling's church. The report that he has received a call to preach there is without foundation. Rev. Darling will in turn come to AJgona some lime for special meetings. Among the new citizens admitted by Judge Quarton Monday was John H. Grotness, who carries three Spanish bullets won at El Caney. He has certainly earned his right to be an American citizen and. take a hand in our affairs. He was a brave soldier. The Free Methodists began their evening services, since remodeling their church, with revival meetings on Sunday night. Rev. A. C, Damon, the pastor, is assisted by Evangelist M. L. Schooley of Mason City. They will have services every night at 7:80 for some weeks. The congregations and interest are increasing. Titonka is growing right along. It has more than doubled since the UPPER DES MOINES reporter enw it last spring. It has a lot of tasty residences and the business part is well built. It has three as good elevators as there are in the county. Titonka does a big business and all the old Algona boys seem happy and prosperous. The school board has not yet finally settled with Gross Bros, on the new school bouse. There was a $10 a day penalty for notcompleting the building by July 25, when it was contracted to be done. Mr. Gross says the delay was unavoidable, but. that is not fully conceded. The fact, however, that the job was not slighted is in the contractors' favor. Whittemore has a block of cemenl sidewalk that looks more like a city than anything in Kossuth county. It was laid by a Dubuque contractor and seems to be solid and durable. A cement sidewalk is as good as there is when it is good. While the city council is at the sidewalk job it should order that no more board sidewalks be laid in the business blocks of Algona. There are more girls with pretty faces in Manager Bothner's presentation of "A Bunch of Keys"'than have been projected into theatrical vision in many a day. If the performance possessed no other attraction it would be notable in this, because the entire group of women are young and unconventional, and they look so much fresher and brighter than the usual crowd in farce comedy. "A Bunch of Keys" will be at the Call opera house Nov. 16. Gen. Gordon lectured to a crowded house Monday evening. He is a typical southern talker, with the usual flamboyant rhetoric about the beauty of the women and the chivalry of the men, but withal a very interesting and entertaining eye witness of the last struggles of the, confederacy. He was one pf the boldest generals of the war, was in the heaviest- fights, and tells amusing and pathetic incidents of bis service. No ^better or more valuable lecture has been given in Algona. The remarkable run of Hoyt's "A Bunch of Keys" has made the name of the play familiar to thousands of theatre-goers. Mr. Hoyt has u fashion of getting together a lot of choice ftotors and putting them Jq altutitione that woul4 cause ft horse to lawgh. Aided by a clever lot pretty girls and ole, ver, taking music, the p}ay is credited with being a tremendous 9l»c<se89, The musical numbers are numerous and pre> 8QHOOL HOUSE IS t)6JtE. This JtiKii School Moved in A Hfftutlful Buiidine. The school board has accepted the new high school building from .Con tractor Gross, and the high School moved in Monday evening. All the changes were made that Architect Smith demanded, and he tells the board that the building IB constructed in a substantial and workmanlike manner, better in fact than the majority of such buildings. It is a beautiful building, handsomely located, and it is internally perfect for school purposes. The school board is to be congratulated on making such an Improvement for Algona, for the town will never be ashamed of the high school, even if it should grow to many times its present population, The Internal arrangements are much more complete thiin In nny of our other buildings. All the partitions are of brick, the blackboards are of solid slate, every room has special ventilation, steam heat Is used, and flush water closets. The style of construction is expensive, but when it is done It is right and will lust. The contract price of the building is $14,840 with some $59 for extras, while the heating and plumbing costs $2,561, and two rooms are left, unfinished. The plan of the building culls for four rooms on the ground floor, 82x28 feet with ample closet room. On the second floor are two rooms 82x28, while the high school room Is 49x36i with two recitation rooms, one 22x14 and one 154x14, The high school room is as handsome as any public room in the state. The hard pine wood work and white walls go well together, while the high celling and shapely windows are attractive. The grading already done on the grounds proves thtit the location is going to be nil that can be wished. It is a pleasant spot, contra!, nnd convenient. Altogether the improvement Is one that will long be a source of pride to the town. COURT TO OPEN MONDAY. Judeo Quartan Adjourns Court a Week— Knuniced In a Murder Trial at Ksthorvlllo. Judge Quarton opened court Monday and admitted 16 new citizens. He then adjourned until next Monday, as ho has to remain in Estherville to try a murder cuso this week.
