The democratic convention comes off ,tpday. It is a trifle embarrassing, too, as the populist convention has not yet been held, and it looks as though the democrats would have to make a break, in their record or endorse the republican ticket. Ben. Haggard has been suffering a regular, siege of typhoid fever and his friends have been very anxious for some time. He is alarmingly weak, but it is now thought the fever has taken a turn for the better. Dr, Ken- icfick attends him. , Among the distressing features of the,cyclone, so it is now reported, was the total demolition of an elegant wedding trosseau. The home of tbe bride -•elect went,and the wedding has bad to be postponed until another tros- seau can be got together. The "young 'people of Norbh Thor« ington" have- invitations out for a 'dancing party to be given in Clarke's ball Saturday evening.

We heardla man say Monday that Algona .Was the .most peaceable community he 'ever lived in. Everything is all right here, especially among the republicans. The residence of James Orr was the scene of unwonted festivity Thursday evening, the occasion of which was the marriage of his daughter, Miss Nellie Orr, to Mr. Martin E. Lutz, a prosperous young farmer residing near St. Peter, Minn. The ceremony was performed by Rev. W., E. Davidson. There was but a small company of invited guests. The REPUBLICAN extends sincere congratulations. Tha friends of the Methodist church count themselves fortunate in the appointment of Geo. H. Kennedy, of Ft. Dodge, as their pastor. Rev. Kennedy and wife are both graduates of .Cornell College, from which institution they took their degrees in 1888. Mr. Kennedy studied for the ministry in Drew Theological Seminary, from which he graduated,, three years ago. lie has been in the;ministry only three years, but has already made a good record. 1 The World is one of the few plays thatcan be'said to please everybody.

Bowen had the pleasure of greeting his wife and children yesterday morning after they had been absent a year in England. Thej arrived on yesterday morning's train and are welcomed back by their numerous friends in Estherville. One of the children had the small pox and was quarantined in the hospital at London for several weeks during the summer. Our former popular townsman, Alex Younie, was in Algona yesterday. He is now in the newspaper business and is running it in connection with the land business. Mr. Younie says Weft Bend is going to have water works, and that the town is just completing a $22,000 brick block, with four store fronts, and hotel'quarters above, which will be one of the finest blocks in northwestern Iowa. It takes live men like Mr. Younie and his partners to make a live an^ prosperous town. The South Dakota State Journal, of Huron, says regarding a family who have just come among us, and who are now living in the Peck house, north of Capt. L. M. B. Smith's on Thorington street: Mr. G. C. Culver having sold his interest in the hardware store to his partner, Dave Smith, he will remove his family to Algona, Iowa, for the winter. Mrs. Culver's .state of health requires the .change. We are more than sorry; to lose these "estimable people from bur midst and trust the change will' be beneficial 1 to Mrs. Culver. Mrs. W. K.

Mrs. Vickroy was in the neighborhood of 03 years of age and Was a woman of remarkable intellectual force,-ind endowed with tho heroic quali* ties which fitted her for the circumstances of her life in pioneer days in Minnesota tiud Iowa. With her husband she moved from Illinois to Minnesota in the fifties. They had little more than established themselves in their new homo when the war broke out, and Mr. Vickroy Entered the Union service. In the fall of '63 the Indian outbreak in Minnesota occurred, and the redskins were but a few miles from her home when Mas.

With Miss Carrie Durant she went to Lakeport to care for her mother a few weeks since.

There couldn't have been any farmer foolish enough to 'make such an offer, nor any buyer mean enough to rob an unfortunate man in such a way, With cows earning what they are in this county to-day, and with plenty of feed for them in the county, there would be no excuse for such a transaction, •Jones & Stacy have been making very thourough work in rebuilding their •mill, Much new machinery has been But in and the capacity of the mill has been substantially doubled,- being now uuo JU about 65 Barrels per day, All tbe oW ments machinery left has been refitted or .re- pany The Emmetsburg Reporter thus welcomes Rev.
