Frank Speicher, who runs a ranch up noxt to the Minnesota line, was an Algona visitor Saturday. Mr. Speicher made arrangements to have the REPUBLICAN sent to him at Ledyard. All the grocery proprietors have agreed to close at 8 p. m. except on Saturday nights. This is a sensible arrangement. It has been the rule with the dry goods and clothing stores for the past year. J. J. Wilkinson has received notice from Secretary Luddin, of the Nebraska relief committee, to 'hold any flour intended for shipment until further notice. Free transportation is denied ab present. «*atfe)zar» -'Haggard -was' 'taken'- 'with pneumonia last Thursday night, the result of a ".old, and has been very sick since.

This paper has received a postal card with the Elmore postmark, requesting that a certain horse be advertised, and giving a description of the horse. The writer does not sign his name, nor does he' intimate what bis object is in having the horse advertised, There was a blizzard with eight inches of snow in some portions of Iowa last Friday, but in Kossuth very little. snow, fell, There was wind enough, and onl'y'the snow was wanting. We are'stjlllooking forward to the first slelurlnpg of the winter. Wesley Beporter; Fellows & Bonar, 'the' new -0rm of Attorneys that are jvbopt to locate in Algono, were in Lesley on , Wednesday. They made us/jTpleasant call, and if 'we are to judge from appearance, Algona is to be,,'c0ngratulated in the addition to ' talent. Some merchants, says the Ft- Dodge Post. Instead of advertizing, stand in their doorways and try to hypnotize the passeisby. This is ;i poor scheme. Men who buy'things while under the mesmeric inlluenco are likely to return when they have straightened themselves out and call off the bargains they have inside. The best thing u merchant can do wllen he has goods to sell is to take a large voluptuous advertisement to the paper having a recognised standing and circulation and having the same published. He is then casting biscuits unon the waters and receives large Vienna loaves of bread in return. The merchant who did not advertise previous to the holidays has about us many goods on hand now as ho had before, and that nwn will grunt his way through the glad new year. Eleven ladies of the Algona Woman's Relief Corps went to Bancroft on Saturday and organized a corps of the order, Mrs. Nannie Setchell being the installing Department Deputy. .

Stephens, Taylor and Starr. 11 The Girl [Left Behind Me," which will be given at the Call Opera House oia Friday evening next is purely American in character and deals with well mown conditions iu the military life of he detachments on the western reservations. It is distinguished by the absolute want of rant and noise, of mock leroes and villains which make so many dramas of this military character, and it is the retitied truth to nature and modest representation of actual perfections which have won for 'The girl 1 left behind me," so warm a place in the hearts of the American heatre-going public. The story is well known, having been detailed in these columns. The company, which is under the direction of Charles Frohmau, '.s said to be very strong. The Breeze, a Cornell College paper for which we are indebtfid to County Surveyor'Tellier, has" the following: We clip the following from a Jennings, La., paper, concerning our old friend "Hutch:" "Yesterday the deal was closed whereby Ambrose A. Call, of Algona, Iowa, purchased the Holton & VVinn plantation fronting on Lacasine bayou, 1520 acres, with pumping plant, stock and equipment, for about $20,000 cash. Mr. Call is a wealthy man and gets one of the best rice farms in this parish. It adjoins a tract oil laud that tie has owned for years. Mr. Call leaves for home today, but A. Hutchison remains in charge." Two of the editorial staff of this paper are Harvey G. Hays, younger brother of J. W. Hays, formerly at the head of the BB- PUBLICAN, and B. J. Barr. Joachim Holts, An Early Settler of Fenton Township, Dies at the Residence of Jno. jjiyer, Friday Night. Joachim Ilolta, one oil tho best luiown rne.ii in Fenton township, died at the residence of John Myer, about three miIcs this side of Whittemore, during Friday night or Saturday morning. He wag found dead in bed at a little, before seven o'clock. Mr. Iloltx had dil- ficulty in lying down, and had been up two nights previously, but Mr. Myer prevailed upon him to try to get 'some sleep, tie ate supper and later some pop corn, and just befbro retiring ate a couple of apples, of which he was very fond. After he went to bed nothing was heard from him, except some coughing during the niglit. ifothing was thoiight'of this, and the discovery ot liisdead body in tho bed Saturday morning was a complete surprise. His health had been poor for some years, but he was able to be in Algona just a day or so prior to his death. Mr. Iloltz vvaa born in Germany in 1825. Ho was married to Wilhelmimi Vierck in 1846.

A report oil tho destruction of the Seneca Creamery by lire on Friday night reached hero on the following day, and on Monday Philip Ekliohu and W. F. Fish, students of the Nor- niiil School, whose homes are in the neighborhood, came down, bringing the particulars to this office. The origin of the tiro is hot definitely settled, but it is supposed that it was communicated from tho furnace. The creamery had just been tilled up with now machinery, and there were 800 pounds of butter on band, HO that with the building the loss was not less than 85,000. There was82,800 insurance. There was danger that the co-operative store, close by, would be destroyed, but thu direction of the wind was favorable, and it was saved. The creamery was a co-operative institution, and was one of the best managed, best patronized and most successful creameries in the county. C. O. Fish is the President of the company and Martin Jenson is the secretary. F. 11. Anderson mado the butter. Our informants state that the creamery will be rebuilt at once, a meeting of the stockholders being held on Saturday. The loss of such an institution is a great misfortune, but the projectors and patrons, with the pluck and enterprise which win success, will push ahead with a new building and outfit and try it again.

It is proposed to buvo a program for the afternoon and a banquet in the evening, The editors are to bring their wives, and it is proposed to make the occasion one to be pleasantly remembered by those who attend, and that probably will be the entire newspaper force of the county. A distressing condition of indifference to the demand for a wider field of activity for woman has come to light in our midst.

The paper was a decided hit, and if the Algona Hustler had come to stay instead of being "for this night only," the brilliant cou-uscations of the meteor indicated that it would have become a light in the galaxy of the Algona press, The dialogue waS a one act comedy entitled "A Pink Perfumed Note," and the rendition of it indicated careful study and a natural adaptation on the part of the performers to the work: in hand. With this meeting the present board of officers closed their services, Much of the success of the society tbu far has been due to their earnest efforts, and they retire with the gratitude of all.
