The holiday trade was big in Algona All the merchants report big sales. Horace Mann attended a meeting o the economic club in Chicago last week Landlord Tremain Is at work in the new hotel. He says he will open Jan An adjourned session of court opens Tuesday. Judge Quartan will hear some motions. Until further notice service will be held at the Presbyterian church, Ir vington at 2:30 p. m. A craze for carom and croklnole seems to be on. One store in Algona sold 60 boards last week. Popular prices of 26, 85, 60 nnd 76 cents rule at the Wm. Owen plays tomorrow and Friday evenings. Word comes from Montana that Lu Weaver has shot a deer. He and his mother will come home next month. Rev. Smylie was the recipient of a fine gold watch for his Christmas present from a friend in Sioux City. Walker Whiteslde got six curtain calls at Des Moines last week. The papers speak very enthusiastically o him. The return of Wm. Owen Is an event of dramatic importance to Algona. He is an excellent actor nnd he has a com pany of excellent actors. Christmas was appropriately cole brated at all the churches. The Sun day school scholars all got something, and all had a hilarious time. The new hotel will surely open Jan 16 with a program that will attract everybody. Some foreign talant wil be present and the opening will be an event in Algona. Up till Christinas day the skating was finer on the river than it has been in many years. It snowed just enough Christmas to spoil skating without affording sleighing. The Episcopalians have plans pretty well along toward securing regulai services in their church. They will unite with Britt again, and have'a rector for the two parishers. Bert Hallock of the Burt Monltoi has bought a half interest in the Eagle Grove Eagle and will move at once. Eugle Grove is one of the coming cities and Bert strikes a. good location. A. J. Lilly has measured 109 grades put in by the county board this year. Sometimes we hear that the county is doing no grading. We should consider 109 grades a pretty fair showing. The biggest mail ever received in Algona came Monday morning. There were 11 tie sacks of packages and papers besides the letter pouches. The nail received in Algona this year is 'ully one-half larger than it was last. One of the amusing ballot mistakes disclosed by the contest was made by SweaCity man, who wanted to have his 'riend hold a. " full term" and wrote in 'fool turn." Then ho forgot to write n the name of the man he was voting or. Charley Grimm of Clear Lake, who till claims membership in the Algona. .;un club, was one of the 11 to tie in a Dig shoot in Chicago last week. It was oo late to shoot off so they drew cuts and Charley won. He got a handsome ilver water set. Perry Burlingame has some soft maple sugar that is as nice as anything weet can be. Perry says the soft maple makes a fine sugar, not so sweet as bard maple, but sweet enough. Kosuth ought to become a great maple sugar producer if that is so. The Courier corrects THE UPPER )ES MOINES about that Northwestern Sunday train. It runs to .lewell June- ion, instead of to Eagle Grove, and so vest to Sioux City. The Courier does not, however, correct its own mistake ibout Smith's majority in 1890. Geo. E. Boyle gets after the commis- ioners of insanity for taking Dr. Feling to the asylum. 'Squiro Clarke ells us that when the board was at Whittemore George approved their ! ecision and said that it was the only hing to do. It is now up to George. Lawyer Dickinson's father has lought the old Roan farm north of Al- *ona on the river, and his brother will manage it. His father and mother will nove to Algona to make their home, ind will be welcome additions. S. P. 'eterson, who sold the farm, will also move to town. In a county like Kossuth, where ndges of election are fair and intelli- .eiit, the original count is likely to be he fairest test there is of the intention f the people. There ought to be a uspiclon of fraud or of deliberate in- ention to do some one an injustice to varrant a contest. It seems that Fuller, who rented the illiard hall, etc. in the new hotel, has orfeited his $20 and dropped his lease. Jharley Plumley has_ leased the bil- ard hall for a year, and will put in a eat outfit. Charley is a good manager or a clean and orderly hall and will ive good satisfaction. S. P. Christensen raised the famous ivlng colts that Geo. Holloway 'is tartling Europe with and C. J, Brown roke them to harness. Charley claims art of the credit for their teachable- ess. He says he never used a whip on nem and that is why it has been pos- Ible to train them so well. A clever theif has recently tapped he dentist offices for gold, He visited, 11 them and got about $2,5 worth in otb pr. Riet's and Dr. Glacier's, and ess ID Dr. Devei-aux's because the rowoe be found were gold plated. He ook gold crowns and gpld fjlUug>, The outlets do ujat lock. th,e}r oftlces fully and do not especially conceal their material. It seems that a systematic Wd is being made all over the state on dental offices. Ralph Miller's brother wrote to bito to ftafn the Algona den tists, but the warning came too late. A big crowd attended the opening oi the high school faultdtog last Thursday everting, and enjoyed the program The unanimous verdict is that a hand somer ot» better building is. not to be found anywhere. The school board built for the future *hen It put up such ft creditable public Improvement. Df. Stull reports that Isaac Frye Is well down In Kansas and Is enjoying life. But he don't like the populists down there, and Is nbout to vote the republican ticket If the democrats don't change bed fellows, and the democrats can't change. Isaac would be a welcome addition to the republican fold. Lew Owen was down to watoh the opening of the contest over treasurer. When the boys asked him why he did not file notice of contest he said he did not want office that way. He said If he couldn't get a majority on the ordinary count he would stick to farming. Come to think of It we guess Lew is about right. A curious incident of the holidays may Involve a Sexton citizen In serious trouble. He thought It would be n good joke to send a dead pig of small dimensions to a relntlvo he don't like in Algona, and accordingly mulled it. Dead animals are not mailable, nnd the lawyers are looking the statutes over to learn If the sender can be hauled up by the United States authorities. "David Garrlck," the most charming of the fine old English comedies that are ranked as gems of the drama, will be presented at the Call opera house tomorrow evening by the William Owen company, one of the most tal ented and evenly balanced theatrical companies that tours the west. As "DadldGarrick" Mr. Owens is at his best, sustaining the role through the varied scenes of romance and comedy with an ability that stamps him as a bright, particular, dramatic star. Mr. Owen enacts many roles but in none is he afforded a greater opportunity for the display of bis wonderful versatility than Is afforded by the character in this clever comedy. The supporting com pany is strong, and a rare dramatic treat and many hearty laughs are insured patrons of the pla.y. Prices for this engagement 25, 35, 50 and 76 cents.

Contractor Grown finaly agreed to an award of $550 for delay in completing ;he new high school building. It was at the rate of $10 a day for 55 days, i'lie hoard conceded a few extras that iad been put in by the contactor that le could not under his contract sue for, but stood firm in its demand for dam- iges by delay. This is a good precedent. Too manny contractors allow work to drag along after the time is up 'or completion, expecting not to be )eld for damages. GETS A LIGHT SENTENCE. Che Wyoming Dusporudo Who WUB Arrested In Algoiia OJetn On" Hatty. John Howe, who was arrested in Alfona for shooting at Conductor Hardle at Emmetsburg was tried last week, fhe evidence was given by the conductor and two brakesmen. None of he witnesses for the state swore posi- ively which of the three strangers did the shooting. The jury was out for several hours and returned a verdict of assault. This means imprisonment in the county jail for a short time. The other two prisoners will probably be discharged. MONEY to loan at 6 per cent, interest. Optional payments. H. HOXIE.
