Ewing, a son of John Ewing, local manager for; the W. W. Kimball Company, has been in town during the week closing out the stock of pianos and organs remaining on hand. The entire stock is to be closed out, and those who come to the front now will get the best bargains ever given in Algona on first class musical instruments. The goods will go on the in- stalment plan when desired, only very small cash payments being required.

It is expected that their report will be ready for -submission to the county board at their adjourned meeting, on the 29th instant. x Ernest Bacon Jias rented his farm to ".Brtehie Tostef; who has been working the Arnold place, and will soon hold an auction sale to dispose of his stock and farm machinery. Mr. Bacon was influenced to give up farming by the ill health of his wife. He will probably move to town. Peter Winkle has his new ice house nearly completed. His storage room has been too small heretofore to hold the ice needed by Algona for the season. He will now have room enough, and the ice crop being a big one, we may anticipate an abundant supply 01 that essential next summer. The Ft. Dodge Post, describing a minstrel show given recently by the ladies of Humboldt, says that Al. Adams dressed up in an old petticoat and put on a false-face thinking that he could ring in and get on the program, but his identity was discovered and he was thrown into a deep well by the indignant ladies. Oounty Clerk Crose sajs he canal- ways tell when a young man wants a marriage license, When a fellow comes in with that intent he spots him on sight and saves bis blushes byjntrp- ducingthe subject and naming the price, thus putting the matter on a business basis. He says there is a faraway look in the young raan't* eyes which is unmistakable. fhe comic operas to be given at the Call opera house next Saturday night, will be enjoyed by a large audience. Algona playgoers seem to particularly appreciate comic operas and .always turn out well, The Metropolitans are said to rank with Andrews and the best on the road- They «arry twelve people, The, Algona Club heW its annual electipn Tjlst weefe. The old officers were mostly r^lect^d, .Theyare: T, ObrJacbiUe/, .BWsWentJ Ju4pe Quw ton, vice president; J While at first glance it would seem impossible to sell at any price ten pianos and 15 Organs in this city of 2,600 in a single week, on second thought it would look about this: Out of a population of 2600 people, there must be at least 25 who are fairly able to own a piano or organ, and yet have none, but intend to buy, and will buy within the next year and a half. It is to those who intend to buy within that time that we speak, and I know there are more than 30, or twice 30 who will do so, and who will without doubt have to pay regular re- ta 1 price for a piano, unless they are far sighted enough to take advantage of this unprecedented cut in prices now offered by the manufacturers, the very concern who built the pianos, and who merely ask that they be taken at just such price, and no more, than it cost to build them, which means simply the cost' of the material and labor to produce the instrument. Our reasons are valid. We unfortunately are caught herewith an immense stock of fine sample pianos and organs and we are forced to either dispose of the entire stock at once, or ship them back at great ex- S ense to our factory at Chicago. I aye decided to take the former course, and sell them, or make the effort, if it can be done in less time than they could be boxed and put aboard of the cars, and it is reasonable to see that we could not hope to succeed if we attempted to sell them' even at a dollar E rofit. Nothing but the lowest possi- le figure that it would cost to produce them would insure or inspire a hope of locating 10 pianos and 15 organs here in six days. We are, of course, just as anxious at this time to sell them as if there was a profit in it, for if they can be sold we shall save the expense of about $20 each returning them to the factory, which would be $500 on the whole. The combined purchasers would save $2,700, or $200 on each Piano and $50 on each Organ, Now this statement is exactly as it is, not overdrawn one bit, which can be verified by investigation at our warerooms with Brorison , the Jeweler, where as fine a line of pianos can be seen as there is ip the country, No more reliable or responsible guarantees could be placed upon a piano than that of the \y\ W. Kimball Co,, and' each instrument bought of this house, will receive such, . With a view of closing out every in- strumenti ibis week, our terms will be $25 down and $10 a month, with 8 per cent, interest on payments after due, This is bu,t little more than rent, and a piano at half price, We, cannot do more, W you can use a piano, we are with you, but don^t delay, ' • W- W.KiMMLfcCo,, '' Chicago, Til, J?, Ewn*e, Qfen, Agfr.

He was carried to his home, hear the depot school house. . , Anderson lingeted all bight and died at six o'clock Tuesday morning. It was thought when he was picked tip aftef the accident that he was dead at that time, but before he was got to his home he began to show signs of animation. His wife was rendered almost frantic by the sight of his body as the men carried it in. She had received no intimation of the accident. Mr. Anderson has been continuously tin- fortunate for some years. About four years ago he had a sun sttoke, and since then he has been unable to do much work, though the need of it to support his family Was pressing. Two years ago, again, While blasting rock, a premature explosion burned his face badly and shattered his arm. He was a man of about forty years, and his family consist of a wife and six small children. They are necessarily left in a dependent condition. The funeral will be from the Lutheran Church this aternoon. PERSONAL MENTION, Mrs. W. L.
