Miss Cramer introduced the the speaker. Mi-. Cowan was finishing lip the work on the Ed. Gilmore building yesterday, though the time specified in the cott- ttact lot its completion was December first. Mr. Gilmoi-fc put? in the shelving and counters* arid he hopes to occupy the new quarters in a couple of Weeks. A sacred concert at the Congregational church Sunday night was listen^ ed to by an audiefice which filled every seat in the auditorium. There Was a double tsale quartet, a double female quattet, a number of solos and several instrumental pieces. Music hath charms to draw a congregation. Jlio. G. Smith, who was appointed by Gov. jacksoti as a delegate to the anti- option convention held at Vicksburg last week, did not attend. The compliment implied in the appointment was well bestowed but it was hardly to be expected that Mr. Smith would make the trip. liev. O. A t Stevens, Pastor of the Baptist church, says the lecture to be given by Dr. Strickland, of Sioux City, on "General Grant from a Southern Standpoint," will be even a more popular lecture than that given by Dr. Hoyt. That is about as high praise as could be given to any orator. The Humboldt Republican says that Rev. Mary A. Safford is now in Call fornia and intends to spend some time in the southern part of that state. Those who know how extensive is the work accomplished by Miss Safford during the past two .rears will rejoice that this opportunity for rest has bc.en offered her. The Bancroft Register tells this hog story: " Wm. Campbell took in two of the heaviest loads of hogs Saturday ever brought to Bancroft. They were some ue had contracted at the Ellsworth & Jones farm; one load tipped beam at 4, 640 and the other at 5,480 Ibs. Rather hoggish loads all 'round." Sheriff Shepherd, of Pipestone county, Minnesota, was here yesterday to take charge of R. Ristau, who was wanted for stealing a team of horses last month. Ristau was captured by our local officers Sunday at his father's place, near Lu Verne, and lodged in the county jail. The horses were secured- as well. The city fathers at their monthly meeting, Saturday night, discussed the policy of putting wp a two story building on the lots near the water works for city hall and storage uses. It is the scheme to sell the city 'lot and building on Gall street near the Dodge street crossing and put the money in the new structure, in case it is decided to go ahead with it. , A. W. Williamson has moved up to Burt, and the Monitor ells what he .is doing: "Wes. Williamson now occup- ,ies the Lem Stockwell farm, having moved up from Algona last week. Mr; Williamson is.riot unacquainted upthis way, having lived on the old Barslou .farm several years ago. He is a hard worker and a good neighbor, and Mr. Stockwell, who will now take life easy in Algona, is fortunate, in securing 'so good a renter. The Humboldt papers report that O. N. Bossinghani of this place, a recent graduate : of the Veterinary department f)f the Agricultural College, is going to locate there. : The Republican says: "Dr.'Bossir.gham, who graduated this year 1 at Ames .in the class of Veterinary Surgery has decided to locate in Humboldt. He was here looking over the ground last week arid will probably return for business simetime during the present month." The State Episcopal.Convention is to be held at Des Moines next week,' beginning on Tuesday, the 4th. The Algona parish will be represented by Rev. A. V. Gorrell, the Rector, and by Geo. E. Clarke, Esq., as lay delegate, and Mr. C. B. Matson hopes to attend 'the sessions. Rev. Gorrell has arranged to take the place of the Arch Deacon at Waterloo on Sunday next, and Alex Peddie, of Emmetsburg, is expected to conduct the services in Algona. The marriage of Mr. Ralph Miller and Miss Marguerite Wjnkel was solemnized Thursday evening in the presence of relatives and close friends of the two families represented; the ceremony being performed 1 by Rev. W. E, Davidson. A pleasant incident of the eyeqing'was the sending up of ninety silver dollars by members of the Algona Matrimonial Association, of which Mr. Miller was, a member. Mr, an,d Mrs, MiJJer.have already settled down to housekeeping in their homeatStrat-' ford, This is the.season pf .the year when it is in order to call • in a«d paj your subscription to -the county paper, ItJs the best form, tp pay all that is back and »; yeaj- jo advance, When a man has dose tbat and ip addition has chip', pedin kbelitUeibtt' weeded to get the Spate' Regime?, the Inter Qceap, or great weekly* be feelsasol* . . considering tbe pleasure , an4 substan tiai benefit 'tQ ^ fleriyed, Ije.hus mad tb,e bept iay^Unjenli 1 ^ pi'^ent gpm to City, fot Lieut.

G. Sanders* of Emmetsburg, goes on Col. Rule's staff as Chief of Commissary, with the rank of Captain. Col. Cooke and Capt. Haggard were in attendance at the Ft. Dodge meeting. • It is said that Capt. King's stories were Very entertaining and were Well f eceived* The Fort Dodge Messenger pays one of bur lawyers this fine compliment: "The present term of the United States Circuit Cotirt has been notable for the active participation in the trial cases of two of the most famous lawyers of Iowa, Mr, Geb. E. Clarke of Algoha* and Mr. John N. Baldwin of Council Bluffs. Mr. Clarke is one of a family of six lawyer, all of Whom are successful as counselors and advocates, They are Maine men by birth. Few men are the equals of Geo. E, Clarke in laborious preparation of cases or in the effective discussion of complex questions before courts or juries." W. L. Joslyu and Geo. Johnson started Wednesday noon on a trip to Des Moines on skates. They got as fat- as Livermore Wednesday night and reached Humboldt by noon next day. They were unable to proceed farther on the trip on account of the breaking up of the ice. They found the Des Moines a winding stream, and estimated the distance to Humboldt by the river route to be eighty to one hundred miles. At one place 'they were told that by walking a quarter of a mile they would have saved eight miles of travel on east and west lines. The boys estimate that they climbed over 600 wire fences. They also place high figures on the walking done and the value the experience will be to them. The entire corps of teachers of the Forest City schools visited the Northern Iowa Normal and the city schools on Friday last, spending the entire day in examining our educational facilities and methods. The teachers gave their particular attention to the departments in which they were themselves employed.. Following are the names of the educators'present: J. D. Slipup, principal of the Forest City schools; Miss Nellie Johnson, assistant; Miss Nellie Flitneri grammar; Mrs. F. H. Fiske, 3rd intermediate; Miss M. Rice, 2d intermediate; Miss Emma Halverson, 1st intermediate; Miss Lydia Fredericks, 2nd primary; and Miss Helen Halverson, 1st primary. The Social Union program Friday night was brief but good. Tbe paper on'-Romantic Love," read by J. T. Chrichilles was in that clever writer's best style and was listened to with great interest. It probably could not. be seriously maintained that the tender sentiment is a modern. discovery, nor that Hebrew history is ransacked in vain for evidence of its presence, but it is encouraging to be assured that our higher civilization is, not inconsistent with its predominance in /social life. Mrs. W. C. Danson read a pract ; ical paper, or at least .a paper on '$' practical subject: -'Co-operativeHouse,- keeping." It,was suggestive of a bright ter future for hard-worked housekpep\' ers. .A>soloby Mr. Geo. Hamilton a;nd an instrumental piece by Miss Cornie' Ingham were much enjoyed, and Miss' Eulu Clark recited "The Little Quaker Maiden" in a'style that brought down' the' house. The leqture room.was com : pletely filled. Fresh'oysters at LadendorfE's. ' . PERSONAL Rev. Wm. 11. ftelly, j>astor of the Presbyterian church at Burt, was a visitor in Algona yesterday.

G. SMITH. Iw A FAULTY JUSTICE RECORD. A Habeas Corpus case was tried before Judge Quarton in Algona, Saturday, the prisoner being Wm. J. Knapp, who was held to the grand jury by Justice L. T. Clement, of Germania, on the chaige of larceny. Lawyer E.' 'V. Swotting appeared for Knapp, and County Attorney Raymond for the state. No witnesses appearing, the case went to the Judge on the record of the Justice Court, which did not include any statement of evidence on which the prisoner was held, and accordingly the latter was discharged! The defendant Knapp, was without counsel in the justice trial, Mr. Swot- ting not being able to be present, and the court denying his motion for a continuance filed. The costs taxed up to i.the county aggregate about'$80. If you want a job of painting done aee GIT. • ^ ;••••. ' ; ; : OOLT STRAYED.
