ESTABLISHED 1865. ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1899, VOL. THE NOVEMBER MEETING, The Supervisors Count the Votes of the Recent Election. Also Secure a Reduced Hate for insurance for the County—The of Bills Allowed. List The county board went into the insurance business pretty thoroughly at this session. The court house Insurance is about to expire and the agents were notified to make offers for new insurance. S. X. Way came in from Wesley with a big cut in the regular rates and that led to a general cut. The , rate in Algona is $1.80 on the thousand. Offers were made as low as $1.20, and the board finally fixed on $1.45 as the rate it would pay and divided the insurance up. During the discussion it developed that in some towns in Kossuth no insurance is placed at what are called the board rates, and that while the insurance companies pretend to maintain rates they will do business at less if they can't get more. Agents for the very best old line companies cut the board rates on the court house 40 and GO cents on the thousand. The bonrd is placing $20,000 of insurance and if the agents take it it will be divided in $2,000 lots as follows: German oC Freeport, S. X. Way; Western Underwriters, M. P. Haggard; Phoenix of Brooklyn, C. T. Chubb; North British Mercantile, F. M. Taylor; London • and Liverpool, Geo. M. Bailey; Fire Association of Philadelphia, C. C. Samson; Milwaukee, C. J. Doxsee; Northwestern Underwriters, J. U. Winkol; Western of Toronto, H. Hoxie; Phoenix of Hartford, A. Hutchison. It is not known if the com- S anies will accept the division at $1.45 rate, ut the auditor is authorized lo reinsure at that rate with those who will, and Mr. Way and others agreed to take the $20,000.

The rumor that we have met with financial reverses Is entirely without foundation. We must admit that we "failed" to please our recent partner; but we do not owe a dollar now past due to anyone. Our stock of hardwood lumber was never BO full and complete and our foundry is being rapidly fitted up with new and improved machinery. We shall aim to turn out nothing but the very best-of work. We have engaged the services' of Mr, Frank Soberer formerly of the firm of Slusier and Scherer, who will take charge of our boiler department. We care very little for what our wouldbe competitors think or say about us, but we want you to b ( ear in mind that we "never fail" to please our customers. We appreciate the kindness already shown us and we shall endeavor to merit a continuance of your patronage. We may be found during business hours at the same old stand and shall be always pleased to meet you there, Very truly yours, J. A.HAMILTON & Co. Supt. Hodge of the Northwestern was In Algona Saturday conferring with our citizens about the passenger Service from Eagle Grove north. There has been considerable complaint about the morning train south and the night train north, both of which trains ought to be,.in the opinion of many, passenger trains, and run on passenger time. At present both are accommodation trains and run on way freight time, about 10 miles an hour. The result is that people In the north end of the county have to get up at an unreasonable hour In the morning or sit up till an outlandish hour at night to reach Algona and get home the same day. There are four trains each way making passenger time from Elmoro north. We have only one each way from Elmoro soutli. Supt. Hodgo says it is quite difficult to arrange the trains on this lino, but ho seemed to be Impressed with the Idea that wo ore entitled to two passenger trains a day. The traffic has boon good this season, to judge from the looks of the trains, and no one up this way wants to got permanently adjusted to the idea that Eagle Grove Is the jumping off place. Now Town Central Time Card. Next Sunday the Iowa Central trains out of Algona will bo changed for the winter.

DEATH OP MBS. Jensle Smith liuiitiiiKtoh Yields After n l,onit Struggle-Renmlng Hrouitht to AlRotin for Burlnl. Jessie Smith Huntington died Saturday at her Colorado home and the remains arrived in Algona Monday night at 11 o'clock, accompanied by her husband and mother. This was the end- Ing of a long and hopeless struggle against the ravages of tuberculosis, an ending that will bring sorrow to many homes in Algona and bring a lasting feeling of regret to the young friends who during so many years have esteemed her so highly. Mrs, Huntington was born in Summit, Wla., May 30, 1866, and came with her parents to Algona in 1872. Prom a little girl she has grown up in Algonu, was 'the first graduate, we believe, of the high school in 1884, was afterwards for three years a teacher in the Palrbaull, Minn., college for the deaf and dumb, and in 1893 was a graduate with honors from the state university of Minnesota. June 28, 1804, she was married to Arthur E. Huntington and for four years, during which little Helen was'born, Oct. 12, 1807, she enjoyed e. most happy life. Then at Christmas time a year ago began a slight indisposition which grew into a threatening disease that soon proved to bo tuberculosis of the alimentary canal, a most deadly form of consumption. Her decline has been rapid, with a few hopeful relapses toward health, during one of which last July" she was taken to Colorado. But the relief was only temporary, and at the early ago of 38 she passes away, mournqd by all who knew her. She was splendidly equipped for life. Her tustes, her opportunities, her surroundings, and her acquirements all combined to make her one of a thousand both for enjoyment and for service. If it bo proper to say that any death is untimely certainly hers is, for how can we adjust to our ideas of timeliness the death in the very flower of young womanhood ot a mother so well equipped for the duties and responsibilities of life? The funeral was held at the Smith home at 8 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Rev. Montague, the Baptist pastor at Lu Verne, Minn., officiated, he having been an intimate friend of the family. Among those present were Mrs. Huntington's brothers, Elmer and his wife, and Dr. George; James Smith, principal of the.deaf and dumb school at Falribault, Minn., and his brother Arthur, cousins of the deceased. No plans are yet' made for the future, but it is likely that little Helen will remain in Algona and that Mr. Huntington will return to Lu Verne for a time at least. - • Mttlo Zora Keith. The long illness of Zora Keith ended fatally Wednesday, and Saturday sorrowing friends laid, her away in the cemetery. She was only seven years and four months old, and had spent five Weeks in weary pain. She was glad to go, and while she leaves a lonely home, her parents could not wish her to remain. Rev. Suokow came from Sioux City to attend the funeral, and a long procession escorted the mourners to the grave. Zora was the only remain- Ing daughter, and the only child at home. Of a family of five only the two men grown on the farms in Plum Creek remain. Mr. and Mrs, Keith came to Algona mainly to give their daughter the advantages of the town, and now are doubly alone, She was a bright and lovable child, of rather frail constitution, and she filled their home. Time will never assuage this last sorrow. Mrs. Keith's father, Volney Wood of Rock Prairie, Wis., and her sister, Mrs, Zuill of Whitewater, Wis,, are here, also Mr. Keith's brother, I. Keith, of Lake Preston, S. D. Mr. and Mrs, Keith feel under great obligations to their many friends for their sympathy and assistance, USE THE BIBLE ONLY.
