The very latest thing is an amateur musical association, which is to be giV* en its initial boost at the residence of A. W, Moflatt, Friday evening. Such an institution will be a great benefit to Algona. Frank Nicoulin is having his lawn graded tip and will put in a tennis court. There is no better place in town 'for tennis and the grading of the lots will improve the looks of his hanasome residence property. On September llth, 26th, and October 9th, 1894, special harvest excursion tickets will be sold by the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul railway at one standard regular first class one-way fare,for the round trip, plus $2. Those brilliant young lawyers, J. W. Sullivan and S. E. McMahon had an important case at Armstrong last Saturday and drove up there in the afternoon, returning Sunday. It is not known whether they have won their suit'ornot. • , Capt. Geo. W. Bell, formerly an Iowa campaigner in the democratic ranks, but now U. S. Consul to Sydney, New South; Wales, sends Dr. McCoy a copy of 'a speech recently delivered by him at that place on " Anglo Saxon Unity." The order was placed Monday, by telegraph for twenty-five tons of iron, the first shipment to be made in thirty days. The price to be paid is $24.60 per ton, which is considered low. 1 The order was placed with the Southern Pipe Foundry, of Chicago. r The Algona Library Association will have a meeting at the residence of Mrs. C. A. Ingharn Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock sharp. It is hoped that all members of the association will be out, as important business is to come before the meeting. Dr. Gaffleldsays to the BEPUB'LICAN su the Opera House-Grocery, 'he dry districts' of Algona will be plied with city water in five or six weeks. , '' ^The town of Dows was burned up last night. 'The loss is estimated at $1,500,000. ' ... v A. L.

The circus which is to be with us on Monday is reputed to be a good enough show for a quarter. Frank P. Dennison and Estella Gingery, of north Kossuth, obtained clerk Grose's consent to marry. A girl 16 years old would like a place to work for her board and attend . school. Enquire at this office. • The Woodward Theatre company will be at Call's during Fair week.

We are in receipt of the annual cata- logu.e of Ellsworth College, Iowa Falls, with which the Chaffee brothers are connected, J Ernest Wheelock will enter Cornell College next week, He has been given the position ot private,secretary to the president of the institution, Dr, W- F. King. School began Monday with only the usuaUncrease of attendance for the fall term. The* faculty is completed \ with Miss May McKittricfc, of lacrosse, "fliUng the vacancy; r Plowing, it is said, is extra good this fall, ' The ground tp not so moist, as it Should be,,b.ut it4s quite mt>llow,,the,re " Caving been no heavy vams to beat it that his original idea was a one and one-half inch pipe down onesideftf McGregor street and returning on the other, but he is satisfied that with a circuit such AS is contemplated a single two inch pipe will furnish just as fresh water. D. B. Avey has rented the-Lockwood store room? which has been ,used for so many years as a billiard hall, and will put his harness, stock therein. - The store has had its noxious' associations, but Mr j Avey's occupation of it 1 mill make it more respectable. This js npt r base flattery.' ' » County Chairman B. W. Haggard, issues the call for the republican county nominating'convention, which-'is to come two weeks from yesterday, Tues,day, September 18. The time is brief for holding the primaries, and commit" cited and started tip sudden the knife blade to strike George, inflfc£ ing a deep cut aeros* the instep, half severing the left fo6t. As sorott as possible he wad taken home ahd is nowire- potted as dolfcg well. W. F. Cattef's store was clofsed Monday, while the Work of invoicing the stock was wsiflg attended to. At its close the Walker Bfos. took charge. The new proprietors are expected to make a good tmcofd ifl the business* to which they are not new. Mt. Carter will now attend to the closing up of his business relations in Algona and it is not expected that be Will be settled in his new Ideation under ten days. He will remove his family. The people of this place will regret their removal. The Burt Monitor is authority for the statement that Ellis McWhorter has an invention that bids fair to be of great advantage to farmers. It is a deyice or attachment for ploWSj the object of which is to prevent plows or doubletrees from breaking in case of striking a stone. It has been thor* oughly tested and Works to perfection, and at a slight expense will save the cost of a plow many times over. Patent applied for, Ketnit $1 M to him at Algona and one will be prepaid to any address, The harvest ball at Sexton last week appears to have been a rip snorter with refreshments to match, If we are to judge from the ample scale upon which the ball was projected the crops of the neighborhood must have been up to the average at least. The omcers of the law appeared on the scene at eleven o'clock and took charge of a large quantity of beer and arrested Hans Carlson and Jacob Goettrude for violation of the prohibitory statutes, which the men had suspended for the occasion, The offenders were brought to Algona and Justice Clarke next day assessed them $60 apiece and costs, amounting altogether to upwards of $120. The men went to jail in default of cash, but subsequently their backers came down with the funds. It is a good enough idea to look up the law 1 before celebrating. Friday evening's meeting of the social union, though not so well attended as usual, was one of the most enjoyable, the program being very interesting throughout. The musical parts were a piano solo by Miss Cornie Ingham and a vocal solo by Miss Lutie Wallace, both being excellent. Mr. Vesper read a description, the Bailway Agents' Excursion to California last spring, which was good as anything we have had in travel write-ups. Mr. Vesper developed an unsuspected vein of humor, and there was not a dry line in the paper. The address by J. J. Eyan on.capitol and labor evinced general soundness of mind on the questions which have been agitating us so much of late, but it is hard to understand how such a smart man as Mr. Ryan is can object to having a riot put down by the strongest possible force and in the shortest possible time, inasmuch as in this country we do not settle questions by riots. Mr. By an, however, expresses, many sensible opinions, one of which is that capital ought to be kept off the grass.' WALKER BROS. IN CHARGE, TAXES 1854.

Some question has been raised by the peculiar pink tint of the water from the new well, and THE REPUBLICAN has' sought counsel of Dr. Garfield, one of the alderman and a gentlemen who has given the waterworks much attention. Dr. Garfield states that the red tinge is given by red sand. The principal vein of water is from a red shale formation, and the water current is .washing out; the sand. The latter Will soon be exhausted, and the water, will be.perfectly clear. At present tlie Jred sand 'precipitates quickly and leaves the \frater clear and sparkling^ perfectly pure and pleasant to the t^ste. '(/A-smore '.desirable" quality of water could not be sequredff The pipe extends down in the ' well nearly 300 fejet, .far below where any vegetable matter ever was, and the water comes out of the rock. Algona -wells • have generally supplied very pure water, and the exemption from epidemics which the place has always enjoyed has been, largely due to the purity of its wa^ter. /Tho3e who take the city water may feel assured that it will be as good as the best we have ever had. <^ _ - EAG^E GROVE DISTRICT FAIR.
