Four Hobart youths who ought to be in butter business disturbed the peace and quiet of Algona at night, besides resisting Night Watch S wit/or. Mayor Sayers fined the two that were caught. As their names belong lo respected families they will not be published for this first offense. Tho Hampton Globo says tho completion of the extension to Algona and the partial addition of tho necessary train and side-track facilities'has demonstrated one thing conclusively in advance, and that is that this branch will be Ihe most important and best paying piece of road owned by the Iowa Central. The new time card on'the Iowa Central will not be forthcoming until the track is ballasted to Algona, It is altio waiting for some new connections at the other end of the line.

V, quality and late la style. There be no cheap stuff put into the house. There has been talk of contesting the whole vote of the First ward In Algona because the judges of election locked the doors while counting the vote. This suggestion on the part of the democrats is likely to cause them trouble. The Bancroft vote was counted behind locked doors and If It should be thrown out It would beat both Smith and Chrlstensen. As a matter of law, however, neither vote can be thrown out. Roy Carpenter thought he would polish up the stoves In Company F's armory one day last week and got a stove polish that had gasoline In it, although he did not know It. In some way the polish caught flre and before he got the can out of the room his hands were badly burned and some of the wood work was scorched. Gasoline for stove polish is a new idea and one that Roy don't want to .figure on any further. Prominent among the laugh provoking successes of the season, is GUB. Bothner's comedians, In " A Bunch of Keys." The well known favorite Charlotta as Teddy, the eccentric comedians, James F. Carroll and John Marr as Snaggs and Grimes, the fascinating Keys sisters together with Win. Gardiner, the Acme quartette and a large ensemble of lesser lights, making up a coterie of artists hard to beat. Tomorrow night. The Harp orchestra had quite an experience coming home from Tltonka last week. They drove home in the night and when about half wny found that a burr had come off or had been taken off, and from there in one of the boys had to walk and keep the wheel on while the wngon slowly came to town. It was well on toward broad daylight when they arrived. They will stop over night hereafter when they visit Tltonka and take their riding by daylight. Horace Mann is going to begin tho campaign of 1900 (it o.noe by putting in a Christian Citizenship league branch, and by setting into circulation some 375 volumes of literature along Christian and socialistic lines, Horace believes In education nod public discussion, rather than in addition, division a.nd silence, as campaign methods. Horace does not wholly approve of the recent democratic campaign in the county, and favored a discussion of the political issues, but was overruled. He will now conduct a campaign on his own hook.
