It, is now^two weeks since be was taken iWith pneumonia and he is not improving as fa4t as it was hoped. i It is expected that tickets to California will take a $10 rise 'about the 15th 'of this month. About $90 for the round trip' is the present ruling figure. But what's the use of going to California!* Advertised letters: Mr. Mervin Av- e.ry, Jack;Blark, Hartwig Clausen, Mr. .W. Douglass, Mr. Albert Falaway.,Mrs. AnnaB, Gaffney, Rev,Alfred Martin, O. H. McCaffrey, Mrs. Melinda Olson. About one hundred friends arid admirers of Rev. Davidson paid him a visit at the parsonage Thursday night- Refreshments were served, and in all respects the occasion was a pleasant one. Rev. A. V. Gorrell has received a call from Christ church, Waterloo, a large and influential church, but after due consideration has declined it. There is a demand from,various quarters for Uis services, D, A. Haggard will preside tomorrow at an auction sale of Lmrses, cattle, hogs, chickens, farm machinery, corn, hay, and miscellaneous articles for J, A. Foster, at his place some four miles southwest of Burt. If Hicks is a good prophet we shall have four storms this month, on the 9th, the J3th, the 24th and the 28th, Some of Hicks' prophecies' have been fulfilled, and we shall not at present haaard a conjecture ,as to probabilities-' The Aigona merchants report a tip top trade this season, They do not complain, The fact is, by the way, Aigona has got some or the best nw chants and - some of the best stores m the S,tate, j?rof, Boyle, the popular singing teacher, is holding concerts in the coun* try school houses and towns.

The fact is to be noted, however, 'that they were poor horses and in poor condition. Really nobody wanted the animals. Leo Peugnet has had the management of the Opera House during the sickness of Manager Haggard, and has acquitted himself with credit. "The Girl I 'Left Behind Me," last Friday night had one of the largest audiences ever in the Opera House. The G. A. R. and W. R. C. will observe Washington's birthday with a program and flag drill at the opera house beginning at 7 o'clock, p. m. At 9 o'clock those wishing to dance will repair to the court house, where the Colonial Ball will open with the grand march. An extended program later. The special services at the Baptist Church under the lead of Elder Carroll were concluded Friday evening. They were counted very successful. The Methodist revival services began Monday night. Special services are announced to come off soon at the Congregational church. Weitgenant Bros. have sold put their hardwaie stock to a gentleman from Worthington, Minn., and the invoice is now progressing, preparatory, to its removal to that point. These gentlemen have not determined their future plans. They are good men and we should be very glad to see them remain with us. It is understood that Mr. Cooper's gospel temperance meetings, will open either on the third> ; or the tenth of March. All' other arrangements for public meetings should be made with this appointment in view, for Mr. Cooper is a speaker whom everybody wants to 1 hear. He comes here from Mason City. '•: .].', A, t. Peterson returned, Saturday evening, from Des Moines, where he attended the annual convention of Iowa photographers. He reports tl-a; there were present about eighty repi e sentatives of the craft who give their attention to securing the shadow 'ere the substance fades, mainly from the larger towns and cities of the State. He says it was a profitable meeting. The next lecture in the course given ay the Baptist ladies will be by Dr. Strickland, of Sioux City, on the 19th, his subject being, "Grant, From a Southern Standpoint." Dr, Strickland was a Major in the Confederate army, and so is in a position to speak from a southern standpoint. He is a very able. orator, and those who have heard lim, look for the best lecture that has been heard in Aigona for years. Sam Clark, editor and congressman- elect, said at the Nevada editorial meeting that there was but one nationally conspicuous great editor remaining—Henry Watterson. We think he was mistaken, as there is Dana of the N, Y> Sun, But we can see ; and hear Watterson at Emmetsbia'g, Thursday njghfc'of nfixt week. Watterson Js not only a great editor and a celebrity, but be js a great orator, It is likely that a large delegation from Aigona will attend, ^ho/names of J. W. Wa'dswortb, of the first ward, Dr. Garfleld of the second, ana Justice F. M« Taylor of the fourth, are favorably mentioned toi the mayoralty, while the suggestion of H<fr, Vesper in that connection Jws. a support which, amounts to » decided compliment, It is settled that Call, will pat accept a reflection, go opt of all the good, m,en nanyji and, to be nam§4 ft PUepesspr; wjU VVWVW»A>VVWy/V>AW/VWWV.^^ Wmimi£Mis$Wkt n o* Can atiflna] OhweU and Society, bei Deoture room.

This society was organized in 1885, in the old church, then on the present schobl house grounds, and has been a great success, It now has 30 active and 20 associate u^embei's, and its Sunday evening meetings are largely attended. Miss Nellie Durant is the president. When the Aigona society was organized there were but 10,000 members of the organization in the United States, and only 200 local societies. Now the society is international and has upwards of a million members. At the convention in Cleveland last year there were 35,000 delegates. . HE DIED TOO SOON. Joacjiim Holtz Wins His Case in the Su- •preme Court Ten Days After His Death—$1,400 in Costs Involved, When Joachim Holtz, whose decease was announced in the REPUBLICAN last week, was last in Aigona, which was but.two days prior to hi death, he said the only thing that worried him was his case jn the supreme courp, His increasing feebleness warned him of the approach of the dread destroyer, and his case was all that disturbed him, This case grew out of a controversy which he ha d with John Peter* son, an Emmet county farmer, about the delivery o f a l°t of steers bought of the farmer by Mr. Holtz,, Peterson claimed that the steers were to he de» livered at his own place, while, Holt?; claimed they were to be delivered at his farm in Fsnton, The dispute in- vo'lve,4'b"t about 880, but both men were sts^bprn, and the case went into the c,ou4ie» where in several trials Holts wag beaten, The case, has now been rieq^ed oy the court ojj a quea* tion qtjastruction given, by juage.
