Ingalls, the Kansas high-stepper, is coming some time in January. Among the appointments of republican campaigners published in the Register is that of 0. A. Ballreich for Ledyard. Oct. 30 and Wesley Oct. 31, or Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. Mrs. Horton has vacated the S, B. Reed house, which has been her home for many years, and has taken rooms in S, H. Pettibone's residence. Mrs. John Wallace and family have moved into the Eeed house. -• The weather of the past week has been the usual October weather in this •locality. Under its benign influence many have felt called upon to revise the old verdict and to declare that October is the most delightful season of the year. • ' Marshall Hays suggests that a canvass of the county for the benefit of •the cyclone sufferers might be made by take. We don't see how Miss Field is going to Mng in anything on t#oman suffrage in either. The Courier has a campaign placard in its Window showing how much the MeKinley tariff taxed the farmer on clothing* but if you talk with some of the democrats in this town they will tell you that protection never added a and the carriage othefwise slightly; the occupants were badly shak en up, Mrs. Byrne having her ankle sprained and injured so that she has been unable to take a step Since her return. Mrs. Zahllar was more fortunate and escaped with only a few bruises. The team after getting loose rah into a wire fence and one of them belonging to Bert Zahllar had its breast and throat cut open, exposing thewiftdpipe and making a gash large enough to lay one's arm in.

Such a canvass could be made very thorough and systematic and therefore effective. Rev.

' .^ and wife, pf Garfield ~,,..«4p;*W! Monday, They last week matje, a .canvass of the ~" cent to the price of wool. The democrats had better get together and settle their little differences before they come down so hard on republican economy. Dr. Pride got ft lively shaking up last week while going out in the country to consult with Dr. Paul of Whittemore. The buggy tongue fell down and the horses began to run, when the doctor jumped out. Craig Calkiiis, who was driving, held oil till the teani i broke loose, and was dragged some distance after the buggy quit, it was fortunate that neither party was seriously hurt. The doctor was lamed a little. Fied Calkins, the republican candi date for county auditor, has b sen tin Algona visitor frequently of late. Mr. Calkins has been giving his attention to business most ot the time since his nomination, but has got out among the voters enough to find out that there is no mistake about there being a strong feeling in favor of the republican party and the republican ticket. Mr. Calkins Will be the next auditor by a good safe majority. There is no doubt about it. Mr E. P. McElroy preached three sermons Sunday, two at the Methodist Church, of Algona, and one at the residence of A. D. Barr, in Union township, at the conclusion of the Sunday School service held there. The Union Sunday School was turned out of a house and home by the cyclone, and now it is well attended at private residences in the neighborhood. There were about fifty in attendance Sunday afternoon. On Wednesday evening, Oct. 31, the Andrews Opera Co. will produce Falka, a comic opera in three acts, by Ghas- saign. On this, their ninth annual tour, the company has been greatly strengthened by the addition of Frank Desbon, a clever and young comedian. All new costumes, their own orchestra; taken as a whole the strongest company ever put on the road under this management. Secure seats Saturday at Dingley's. Andrews' Opera company has combined with Deshon Opera Company and will play "Falka," at Call's next Wednesday evening. Falka was the opera put on here by Andrews, about four years ago after two weeks spent in rehearsing at the Thorington house. It is one of the best comic operas. And all of their costumes are new. Andrews are particular favorites with Algona people, and will have as usual an overflowing house. Mr. Foss has some very suggestive remarks in our advertising columns, and Mr. Goeders gets to the front by the same blessed .means. And if there ever was any doubt of what the Misses Matson & McCall are doing, their ad, makes it clear-that they*propose to be. useful, and at a reasonable figure, ornamental. Our advertising pages are middling lively and we might say, without reproach, that they are full, too. Piles of brick and stone recently placed on the lots east of W. K. Ferguson's residence on State street have led to the inference that Mr. Cowan is going to put up some houses there right away. Mr. Cowan says in this connection that "-some folks know nwre about my business than I do," which we take it is an intimation that it would perhaps be just as well to not be so free in predicating future events upon present appearances. A letter was advertised last week by the Algona office for Eev. Chauncey Taylor, better known to old settlers as Father Taylor, who died in 1876, eighteen years ago. It was claimed by his daughter, Mrs. J. E. Stacy, who found the writer was his old chorister in Rutland, Vermont. The latter had seen a notice of Father Taylor's missionary A. amitP, or tins piace, uieu wu uue i idence of her nephew, Supervisor B. Smith, of Gerffiania, last Wednesday. Mrs- Smith came out here from Chicago with her husband, B. N. Smith, and her daughter, to visit her son and nephew, last June. She had an acci* dental fall from the porch while at her son's Which it is thought may have caused her trouble, which is understood to have been peritonites. She had the best medical attention but without avail. The funeral was fiom the residence of B. F. Smith oh Friday, and the remains Were interred in the Germania cemetery in compliance of her own request. Mr. Smith and two daughters spent Sunday in Algona, and on Monday departed for their home in Chicago. Somebody who is evidently afraid to have his identity known, makes a mean assault upon the ladies who have been doing so much for those who suffered from the cyclone disaster. There is no doubt but the" ladies have been guilty of feeling great sympathy with Mrs. Peterson in her distress, to which they have given praiseworthy expression in the supply of her needs, but as to any comments upon the medical treatment we are not in a position to testify. The skin grafting was not wholly successful, it is understood, but that is a difficult experiment under the most favorable circumstances, and in this instance the circumstances were very unfavorable. In this case all parties seem to have done the best they could, and neither of the parties, probably, has any occasion for serious criticism. The Co"Urier squib is probably the work of some quarrelsome outsider, who fancies that he has some occasion to be disgruntled, and whose timid disposition prompts him to shy his stone from behind cover. three Great Comedians.
