The weather was bitterly cold, and the winter as a whole was the worst the'country has ever had. He looks with suspicion on our fine November. C. C. Hill, engineer of the Iowa Central, is reporting to the poatofHee department on the towns and postal facilities on the new line. It Is likely that railway mall service will go on soon.

Frank Butlerfield, who was once a hardware merchant of Algona, leader In homo dramatics, etc.,'died last week in Minneapolis.

Agent Vesper says tho report In the Blue Earth City Post that there are transfer charges at Elmore on the Northwestern line Is not correct.

W. H. Tngham met Chas.E. Putnam at Cedar Rapids last week for the first time in 32 years.

He came to Algona In 1855 and for a couple of years hunted and roughed It with Mr. Ingluim and A. L. Seeloy. Our readers will recall a pleasant account of his experiences which he wrote a couple of yearn ago for THE UPPER DES MOINES. One of the bidders at the tax sale has figured out what a.millionth of a piece of land would be, A town lot has 1,254,528 square inches, so the man who pays the tax for a millionth gets a little over a square inch. What a. duo clecillionth would be some one else can figure out. A quarter section of land has 1,003,624,400 square inches. A billionth would be but a fraction over a square inch. If a. man should get a tax'deed it would bo to a Inch to be taken out of the north east corner of the quarter. Tho contest over county treasurer comes a. week from next Monday. Neither Mr. Ward nor Mr. Smith has announced who his judge will bo. The more that is learned about the vote in Riverdiile, Prairie, and Wesley, the less reason there is to believe that Mr. Smith will find the count wrong. An amusing feature of the whole matter is Mr. Smith's sworn statement thalhebe- lieves that every election judge in the county failed to count votes for him and did count votes illegally for Ward. Mr, Smith will not gain any popularity out of his contest. The business men's meeting last Wedni'nday evening was well attended. The only matter brought up was getting up an Illustrated souvenir of Algona. for use this winter. The committees were appointed; M.Starr, J. W. Hinchon and Harvey Inghara to have charge of the printing, etc., and Geo. C. Gal), . Thos. F. Cooke, and C. C. Samson to secure the patrons and to attend to the business end, The purpose is to have a handsome book of viaws of Algona's finest scenery and best buildings printed In the highest style of the art by some city house, and make the cost actual net to the patrons. Special photographs will be taken so that no poor pictures will be admitted. Such a book will be a thing of beauty and valuable in Itself, nnd will also be a desirable means of showing off Algona away from home. No WONDER the Star Clothing and Shoe Co.
