EeV. Eighmy will perform the marriage ceremony* Mr, Geo. Johnson has sold his laundry establishment to Henry Simpkins, Who will run it. He will secure expert help and aims to put in new machinery and prepare for a larger business. Mr. Johnson has made the business a great success and built up a very large trade. He has done the best class of work, and has demonstrated that there is a profitable field in Algona for a laundry such as he has run. F. L. Wilson has bills out for a sale to come off on the James Beibhofl place to-morrow. A long list of desirable stock is to be put under the hammer as well as a great variety of farm machinery. Mr. \Vilson has been compelled, much against his inclination, to give up farming in Iowa, on account of the breaking down of his wife's health. The latter is now with her relatives in Illinois, and Mr. Wilson will go there as soon as he can close up his business. Keally, December has been an active building month this year, as it has been in the psat. It wants to be borne in mind that while we have seldom enjoyed more favorable December weather, we have not seldom had as fine. Altogether, considerable building is done in the winter months. It is within the memory of the writer that the REPUBLICAN office was built from S. Waikef aftd fcif& ate Delations at Ltt Vetnfe, Minnesota. Miss Field was the gtiest of Mrs- C. A.

Supervisor-elect Leahder Barton of Ltt Verne, is recovering frotn a long illness. He is about again, and doubtless he will be on hand the first Monday in JaHuaay to help transact the county business. Frank Thompson, of Burt, was a pleasant caller at the REPUBLICAN office Monday. Mr. and Mrs. t>. A. Haggard returned Monday from Epworth, Dubuque county, Iowa, where they attended the funeral of Mrs. Haggard's father, Mr. B. H. Wilmott, who was one of the pioneers of Dubuque county, and a An Awful family Riot In the JFTee Press Office at Ruthven.

On Tuesday morning, he found his favorite resting place occupied by a white bull-dog and in a very few mo* ments there was the worst mixture of dogs, stoves, coal buckets, printing presses, editors, and devils you ever saw. It was not till Marshal Jondahl had ktiocked a tooth out of the bulldog's jaw with a monkey wrench and both dogs had been choked down With ropes that they separated, and the poor editor and his devil crawled out of the rubbish that the canines, in their bllO iVJZJjt \J JJUAW.".•« v/.www ..*»w "7 . the ground up, foundation and all, in 1882? and it was finished and ready for 0.

Emmetsburg Reporter: Miss Elsie liunocame over from Algana Tuesday. She is desirous of securing an engagement as a teacher of drawing in the public schools here. At the request of several of the citizens of this place she brought over specimens oi her work, and has them on exhibition at the Gowan Store. It is-not necessary to say anything about Miss Hunt s artistic skill, as her paintings do that for her. Should the school board decide to add drawing to the course, they can do no better than secure the services of Miss Hunt as instructor. Mr. Goodner, of the Call & Cowles office, was one of the witnesses who went to Dubuque to testify in the Van Leu'ven trial. lie was not called on, however, as the defendant entered a plea of guilty. This was the sixth time that Mr. Goodner made the trip in this jcase to give' evidence, but only once was he called to testify, and that was before'the U. S. grand jury; j;Mr. Goodner was U. S.

Chapin and wife are^down from Minnesota to spend the holidays. Claris Blackford has been in Algona for a few days visiting relatives and friends, Mr. John Chapin called on the BE- PUBLICAN Friday while in town delivering those best in the world Bibles. Mr. Chapin is still a resident of Humboldt but occasionally, when off his guard, he lets fall a remark, that he would like to live in Kossuth again. Geo. Barr is home from a long absence in Oregon and California. He spent the last month in the latter state, visiting at San Jose, where Arthur is employed in a large commission house. George likes California better than he does Oregon. Dr. Barr is still at Eoseburg, and his improvement in health bids fair to be permanent. The doctor is likely to go to San Jose in the spring, however. Mr. and Mrs. Gardner Cowles arrived home from their extended eastern trip Saturday night. They visited Niagara, Boston, New York and Washington, staying ten days at the national capi- tpl, and making from there trips to Arlington and Mt. Vernon, and going a quarter of a mile up the Washington monument. While Mr. Cowles engrossed himself with business, Mrs. Cowles,attended a reception given by Mrs. Cleveland, whom she found pleasant and cordial, and listened to Senator's speech in favor of the closure rule, which was effective.

Are you aware of the fact that a Kimball Piano in our store only represents so much raw material, so""much actual cost of labor, and is built by the largest manufacturers of the kind in the world: is second to none in merit, durability, or finish, and that our guarantee is backed with a capital only exceeded by a few of the larger banks; also the 'fact that we are always wil- riQ TO ling to give you the advantages of all ^ ^ these different points, and if necessary, furnish you a Piano or Organ at actual manufacturer's cost, as our method is to lead but never follow, or be undersold by any competitor. Call and get our prices, and you will be surprised at what a small amount of money it .will take to buy a strictly first-class Piano—the Kimball. Heinze and" J. P. Hale & Co., for leas money. Respectfully yours. W. W. KIMBALL Co. JNO. EWING, Manager, Algona. THE FAIRBANKS-CHARTER. Several of our newspaper friends have made inquiries regarding the Fairbanks-Charter gasoline engine placed in THE REPUBLICAN office last July. It gives us pleasure to testify that it is the nearest to perfection of any piece of machinery we ever had .any experience witu, and we do not see what improvement could be made in it. We have become convinced that there is as much,difference in gasoline engines as there is in any other kind of machine. This engine is of U4 actual horse power and weighs 1700 pounds. The solidity and beauty of its construction, -its handsome finish and the ease and smoothness bf its operation are the-admiration .of all who see/it dp its ; work. It'is,an always reliable'engine, always ready for buiness, and is easily managed. It requires only a modest sup- ily of gasoline to make, it, •, like the jrook, run on forever. Withputsmqke without dirt, without ,an pfEensive $mell, always ready for service on short "notice* it combines all the utilities of the steam engine, with none of its unpleasant features, and i? in every respect a perfectly satisfactory power. It f - manufactured by Fairbanks, Morse Winkle's Old Stand. lODGE'S MEAT MARKET.
