Patterson £ ^afchett have dissolved partnership and have been engaged for , a few days in taking an inventory of goods itt stock. Mr Safchett takes the Bancroft grocery stock and E. A.

Mr. Barchett's depattute Will be re f rt'tted, as he is a favorite with all who Mow him, A little drizzle of rain and a little flurry of snow and a great deal of mud Made an unpleasant combination the first of the week. There is complaint again of the fail* ing of Wells and other sources of water- supply for stock. Afewdays of rain would be a welcome dispensation to farmers and stock growers. The REruiJMCAN is in receipt of a cleverly written and interesting letter from Swea City in regard to the alleged mobbing of Hill and Ryan, and we regret to be obliged to omit it on account of the failure of the writer to sign his name. The latter does not have to be published, but is a tangible evidence of good faith. If the writer does not like to take responsibility for the letter, the editor naturally 'does not like to do so. The Algona young people feel under deep obligation to A. D. McGregor, who supplied the furniture for the court room Saturday night. The draperies were furnished and arranged by Leo. Peugnet, whose artistic taste was generally commended by those present. The Webster City Freeman, one; of the best, papers that 'We know of, "comes to our table in the f Orrn of a daily. It is a surprise to us to see Webster City putting on such airs, but if it must, the Freeman will • serve its purpose as handsomely as any newspaper that could be found.

Tlieo. Chrischilles is moving into his pretty little Queen Anne cottage this week. It is lilled up with all the modern conviences except electric lights, which the owner will probably want to add later. The cottage is unique in its architecture among the residences of the place. John McGetchie, who but recently moved to Algoua and settled in a comfortable home on Call street, died 'yes- lay. He was troubled with kidney disease. He was 74 years of age. The funeral will beat 1:30 tomorrow afternoon, from the residence. The only republican congressman el- cted in Texas will represent the Llano district, in which some of our citizens tiave business interests. There was a three cornered fight, and the victor, Judge Nopnan, went in on the wool issue in. which the people of that region are interested. C. B.

Judge Quarton gave a hearing in chambers, Monday and Saturday of last week, in the matter of the administration of the estate of the lale Hobt. Stephenson. Soon after the latter was killed in the cyclone his widow asked for the appointment of Geo, JSoyie, of Whittemofe, as administrator of the estate, and he Was appointed, but the situation in Which the estate was left at tbe death of Mr, Stephenson was such that the other heirs desired to have a hatid in its settlement and accordingly E. V. Swelling presented their petition, tbe widow being represented by Geo. E. Clarke, The matter was hotly contestested and the hearing resulted in the appointment by the court of Mrs. Ada Stacy, wife of James Stacy of this place, as eo^adrninistrat- or with Mr. Boyle. The effect of this appointment is to block the settlement of all claims against the estate except such as both of the co-administrators agree Upon. It is stated that the petition was prompted by the widow's pre- sentittg bills against the estate amounting to some $500 for stock and other property of hers sold by Stephenson. A controversy arose over the validity of these claims, and it is presumed that they will not be paid until that contro- veivy is settled. It seems, too, that there is a dispute, which has gone into the courts, over the title to the Steph* enson place, and the circumstances are so peculiar as to make an interesting story. Just prior to his marriage, last March, to the widow Vigdol, Mr. Stephenson deeded his place to his son Lawis, who resides in Story county, taking from him a life lease and a contract for support. It is natural to suppose that his action in this matter was prompted by a desire to keep his wife who was to be, with whomhisrelations had not been of an ideal character (a child having been born before the marriage ceremony,) from acquiring any right of dower. She was kept in ignorance of the transaction until last fall, and it was very soon after she was made aware of the deal that Mr. Stephenson became very anxious to get back tbe title to the place. He wrote to his son, and that failing, he went down to see him,and represented that he had sold the place to an Illinois man for $4,000. The son was ready to reconvey the farm on the representations made, but his wife suspecting a trick, refused to sign the deed. Stephenson and his son then came to Algona, and the latter executed to his father a deed with the grantee in blank and returned home. Stephenson subsequently had his own name written in as grantee and employed Geo. E. Clarke to begin suit against his daughter-in-law to compel hetvtpsign the deed. This business Col. and Mrs. Spencer went to St. Paul Monday to meet Win. Spencer on his return from the state' of Washington. Jake Freeh was doing business in Algona yesterday* A. Hutchison expects to start for the south next Monday ot Tuesday. ' Lawyer C. E. Ranck, of Iowa. City, was in Algona on legal business Monday. Geo. E. Clarke went to Fort Dodge, Monday, to attend to business in the federal court, returning last evening. A. p. Clatke arrived home yesterday motning from a flying trip which included Des Moines and Chicago as two of the points. John Wilson, of Palo Alto, was ih town the grst of the week. He brought over his son, Rybern, who eaters the Normal to remain during the winter term. Mrs. S. D. Drake, of Matshalltown, is visitihg her parents, Mr, and Mrs. Wartman. Judge Quarton is holding court at Emmetsburg this week. Alf. Whitfleld, a son of Rev. Wm, Whitfleld, is visiting his young friends in Algona. . Frank Benjamin came down from Minneapolis last Saturday for a few day's visiting with the old folks. Miss Cora Hibbard has returned from her studies at Ames and is engaged in teaching near Cylinder, in Palo Alto county. The Bancroft Register says of one of our citizens who is soon to go into business in that place: C. W. Sarchett of the grocery firm of Patterson & Sarchett, of Algona, was in our city last Tuesday and contemplates engaging in the grocery business here with F. A. Patterson. This will give Bancroft another hustler and an energetic business man. Mr. Sarchett is well known all through the county and has a faculty of drawing people his way. James J. Ryan, of Algona, is down to take a last look at his democratic friends before burial today.—Ft. Dodge Messenger. Miss Elsie Hunt is back from Minneapolis where she has been attending the School of Fine Arts. She also took lessons at the State University. Miss Hunt's artistic abilities are of no small merit.

W. have in prospect a grand banquet to come off during the holidays, c and the question which agitates the' members just at present is who will pay the bills. A dispensation from 'the grand lodge permits tbe admission, of members on a SS-admissipn fee until the close of the year, and now a contest will be waged between two sides to see who can bring in the greater number of member^. This is a great institution, which every young man should join. The assess-' ments are small, and a certificate of membership adds $2^00 to the'estate of its possessor. Algona has a very fine lodge of this order, and tbe social enjoyment which is thrown in .with the more substantial benefits is something not to be sneezed at, .••••.

The effect of the appoiptmenfc of the co-admiriiStrator is to hold matters as they are until these greater questions are settled.
