The time of letting of the contracts for the erection of two shool houses in Union township has been changed from Nov. 10 to Nov. 17, one week later. The notice of this change was received by the REPUBLICAN after the advertisement had gone to press in our supplement, but as corrected it is run again in the body of the paper and attention is called to the change of date. Prof. D. E. Johnson, of the Normal School, County Surveyor Arthur Tellier, Miss Fannie Moffatt and Miss Belle Tellier attended the State Christian Endeavor Convention at Sioux City, returning home Monday afternoon. They report that the convention was a great success. There were 368 members in attendance. The next annual meeting is at Des Moines. Arthur Dutton, of Cresco township, was brought before the commissioners of insanity Monday morning and found to be insane. Hij insanity was of a violent type, and it was necessary to bind him.

Sheriff Samson left with the unfortunates for Independence immediately' after the hearing. Myron Schenck is undergoing asiege of typhoid fever. The attack comesat an inopportune time, in the midst of his building operations. He had completed his barn and a woodhouse, and had got moved into the latter. He was just about to start on the erection of hisresidence when taken down. He has the sincere sympathy of many friends, who will hope to see him on his feet again soon. The Wesley Reporter says, apropos of the talk of outside aid for the cycloned: "There was a rumior afloat a few days ago that G. W. Eddy had received $700 for the cyclone sufferers, from Des Moines. We asked George Washington Eddy about it, and he says Des Moines nor any other town had not sent him a single cent, and we believe him. Kossuth suffered severely by the cyclone but has not asked outside aid and don't need it." The, marriage ceremony by which Mr. E. B. Batler and Miss Lenette Wilson were made man and wife was performed by the groom's father, Rev, H. B. Butler, at the residence of the bride's parents, at six o'clock, Wednesday evening. There were present, besides the bride's parents, her brother, H. J. Wilson, of Ernmetsburg, and wife, Mrs, Van Vechten, of Cedar Rapids, Mrs, Pinckney, of Chicago, and Mr. Frank Butler. The REPUBLICAN has received a letter from Dr, Kenefick in which he re» quests, that the statement be made in this week's issue, t.hat he 'was the author of the item on' "Skin Grafting" in the Courier, He spates that be told. the editor of that paper that lie might attach bis name tp it or mark it communicated an<J refer inquirers to him, This explanation is creditable to the JQ.oc- tor's sense P£ honor aa4 propriety; sn4 with it this paper-, tafees. ifa leave qf the Tne difficulty of dai-Sing the Correctly is increased when ttoere two men to be elected to the satae bt- fice, asjn the case of county supervisors at ffie election next Tuesday. If the voter wants to cast a straight party ticket all he has to do is to make a cross in the circle before the party name, and the vote will be counted for every man on that ticket. It is the easiest thing in the world to vote the ticket straight, if a man wants to vote for one of the men on another ticket and one on his own, he had better go and see a lawyer. A case is reported in the current number of the Northwestern Reporter which is being studied by the attorneys just now. It comes from Carroll county, and it shows facsimiles of two tickets voted in a town election, in both of which the intention of the voter was perfectly cleaf, but both ballots were rejected. The difficulty is that the law tells just hoW the intent of the voter shall be expressed. In such a case, if we get the hang of the law, the voter should omit the cross in the circle and make a cross in the square opposite the name of every candidate for which he desires to vote. But our advice to republicans is to vote'er straight. HAGGARD & PEEK Take Possession of the Jones & Smith Abstract office—Cards of Introduction. The new firm of abstractors, who suc j ceed the old and reliable firm of Jones & Smith, will take possession of the office to-morrow morning and the business will go on without a jar. Mr. Smith will remain in the office for some time yet settling up his business affairs in Algona. The new firm are responsible young men and solicit a share 'of the public's patronage, which they will undoubtedly get. Cards from A. D. Clarke & Co. and Jones & Smith appear below: Oct. 29,1894.—To Whom it may Concern: M. P. Haggard has been in our employ for nearly four years, during which time we have always found him to be strictly honest and trustworthy, and we take great pleasure in recommending him to the public. Any business entrusted to his care will have prompt and careful attention. A. D. CLAIIKE & Co. For twenty-five years we have been engaged in the real estate, abstract and collection business in this county, and now, contemplating a change of location, we.have turned our business over to Messrs. Haggard & Peek, gentlemen of long residence in this locality and whom we have known intimately and well. Mr. Haggard has had years of experience in real estate matters and Mr. Peek has been in our constant employ for the past three years and has had full charge of our large abstract business as well as other branches of our office work, and we cannot say too much in his praise as an abstractor. We have always found him careful and accurate and consider him thoroughly competent and reliable in this work. We very heartily endorse the new firm and besoeak for them a continuance of your patronage. Very truly, JONES & SMITH. OHASE & SANBORN OOFFEE, Walker Bros. have.the Chase & San- b'orn Coffee agency.

Eov. Ohas. Butters, of Wisconsin, spoke and a couple of women sang. The speech was very good, showing up the evil effects of intemperance, but its relevancy to the present election was not clearly apparent. The turnout was small. Kossuth county had the.cyclone but was spared the first snow storm', which fell Monday all over Nebraska and South Dakota and generally over Northwestern Iowa, It was heard of yesterday morning as close by as at Emrnetsburg, while at Sanborn six inches was reported, and at Sioux City several inches. This should be a w'arnjug not to leave that corn out any longer. A few nights ago an attempt was made to enter Jas. Taylor's store through the back door. A hole was cut in the door, but it would seem that the party or parties must have been frightened away, for the entrance was not effected.

The State Register givea the following account of a wedding in which all of the people of this place feel an in* terest: At 7 o'clock last night Miss Nellie Emily H.-pbtirn was married to Mr. Harvey Ingham, of Algona. The Wedding occured at the residence of the bride's mother, Mrs. Anna E. Hepburn, of 720 West Seventh street, in the very house where the bride was born. The wedding was a quiet one, but very pretty and well arranged. It was well called a chrysanthemum Wedding, for the parlor, where the ceremony was performed, was tastefully decorated with these beautiful and seasonable flowers, all in white, Woven iti Vyith green, running aroiihd the room like little harbingers of joy, for the whole house was lilled with the spirit of the occasion, and all was bright and cheerful. The bridal party appeared shortly before 7, the wedding ur.'icb. beiag played by Miss Ruth Howe. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. A. B. Marshall, of the Central Presbyterian Church, and the regular Presbyterian service was used. The bride wore a plain, white silk' without train, trimmed with the chiffon and lace. She was attended by Miss Hat tie Kirkham and the best man was Mr. Fred Ingham, of Omaha, younger brother of Mr, Harvey Ingham. The ceremony was not long, and the persons most concerned acquitted themselves with simple grace and earnestness that was more than usually impressive. When it was over the relatives and friends present, nearly all of whom had known one or the other of the couple just wedded all their lives, expressed as well as a few words could do at Such a time, how pleased they were by what had just occurred, and then a light, dainty wedding supper was served in the dining room by Mrs. Hepburn. Mr. and Mrs. Ingham left on the Chicago and Northwestern train at 9 o'clock for Chicago, where they will remain a few days, visiting a sister of Mr. Ingham, and will then return at once to Algona to make their home There will be no extended wedding trip at present. The Register says regarding the bride, who is soon to come among us and occupy a place in Algona's society circle: The Hepburn family is one of the oldest in Des Moines, arid none has a larger share of the public respect. The late J. Addison Hepburn, the father of the bride, was an early settler in Polk county and was for years one of the leading as well as one of the drv goods merchants in the city. Ill health, the result of service in the army, overtook him, and he was compelled to retire from business. After his health was partially restored he was unanimously elected county recorder, and. when" he died, two years ago, his wife was elected to fill the vacancy, without opposition. The bride has been a special favorite in her home city, where she has spent her entire life, with the exception of four years at school at Bristol, Tenn. Many, Many friends, young and old, thought of her last night, and hoped that all the good things of life might be hers. They felt sure, too, that a good share of the blessings of this world for her: that botb she and her husband had married well; that a life that had been pleasant in the past would continue to be so in the future. The regard in which both are held was shown by the array of beautiful and tastefully selected presents, which were sent in great numbers. Money to loan on long or short time. - 3tf GEO. C. CALL.
