Mr. Lochtu is understood to be doing well in his new.home. ;•.--„;. Strange to remark, we'have had no announcements of candidates for Mayor, either suggested by. personal ambition or induced by the pressing demands of many friends. There appears to be no scramble so far. While in Chicago en route for home Archie Hutchison called on Jos. W. Hays and found him doing a large and paying business. Will F. Walker is in with him at present, and as might be supposed, the two make a strong team. County Clerk Grose had about concluded that the bottom had fallen out of the matrimonial market, but one license having been taken out this month, when on Monday he was privileged to make four hearts happy by issuing two licenses.

At the present'tinie'the friends of "the library tax are entirely confident Of success, and we take it that their \ confidence is. justified.

Our readers will be glad to look over the semi-annual statement of the Algona Deposit and Loan Association appearing in this paper, showing as it does a sound cottditon of the institution. A dividend of 14.73, P« cent. per annum on the loan fund values has been made for the six months ending December 31, and distributed. Our Mr. Williams is winning fame. The Fotest City Summit says: G. L. Williams, of Algona. was in town on Thursday of last week. Mr. Williams is rapidly making his way to wealth and fame, through the medium of a hair restorer of his own manufacture, Which is warranted to grow Whiskers on an Indian or hair on abilhard ball in from one to six weeks. A farmer lost the end-gate out of his wagon one day last week while driving along State street, and though sotne- boday yelled hard after him he wenton eailv, unconscious of his loss. It was left at Setchell & Setchell's store, and if the fartner is a faithful reader of the RKftraiACAN he Will go there and get it, after thanking the ladies for then- consideration and paying a year in ad- Vance for this paper* The Whittetnore Champion ot last week had a vety creditable write-up ot its town, illustrated with well executed cuts of its more important buildings, including the handsome new State Bank and new School House. There is no community in the county that is animated more by that enterprise which counts for the makingof a town. Whittemore is prosperous, has a thriving business and a progressive population, and is bound to keep up the march of improvement. In lieu of the usual program of the Social Union, Mr. Chrischilles, the committeeman, has secured a lecture to be delivered by Johnson Brigham, editor of the Midland Monthly, whose theme will be " Midland Literature." Mr. Brigham is tho leading literary man in the state and is a line orator, whose popularity as such has been attested on many occasions. The lecture will be Friday evening, March 1st. at the Congregational Church, and will of course be free. The Burt Monitor says that the Burt creamery received 240,900 pounds of milk for January, 1895, as against 190,701 pounds for the corresponding month of 1894, showing an increase of 50,259. The number of pounds of butter made was 10,561, for which 23 to 24 cents in New York was received. The highest price paid for milk was $1.00 per 100 pounds to Hiram Norton. Some get as low as G5 cents, all depending upon the per cent, of butter fat in the milk. Rev. A. Elf strom, pastor of the Swedish Lutheran churches of Algona and Bancroft, brought to the REPUBLICAN office on Monday a copy ot a denominational paper containing the last letter written by George Washington. It was written on December 13, 1899, the day prior to Gen. Washington's death, and was addressed to John Anderson, a Swede at Norfolk, Virginia. John Anderson was engaged to marry a pretty girl in Sweden, and he sent it to her along with one of his own "composition. 'The match was broken off, hut the letter was kept by the lady un • til her death, and then handed down from one friend to another for nearly one hundred years. It is now the property of Mrs. C. A. Carlsson, of Gallar- ed, Sweden, and a high value is setj.ip- on it. The article on the County Poor Farm contributed by a farmer to last week's REPUBLICAN, has been the occasion ot much favorable comment. Chairman Chubb, of the County Board, informs the editor that the report of the income and expenses of the farm for the year 1894 is now on file in the office of the county Auditor, and that it will be given to the public as soon as the Board meets. It was made out by Ex-Supervisor Bawson, and was not ready for the January meeting. It was expected that it would be in at the adjourned; meeting, but by some failure to connect it did not reach the office till the day after adjournment. Chairman Chubb says the Board aims to do with the farm substantially what the REPUBLICAN corresponent suggests. Some thirty Algona people listened to Henry Watterson's speech at Em- metsburglast Thursday night. They were enthusiastic in choir praise ot the great Kentuckian's • oratory. Among those from Algona were County^ Clerk Frank Crose and wife, County Auditor F. D. Calkins, Postmaster J, W. Hin- cbon, C. B, Matson, Mrs, C, A. Ingham, Harvey and Corwe Ingbam, the Misses Wartman, Mrs, C. 0. Samson, E. J. Gilmore and wife, W. C. Danson and wife, Ike Finnell, B. B. Warren, Charley Smith, Grant Bamsey, Dr, M. J. JCenefick, M, Starr and wife, Miss Elsie JJunt, Banker E. J, Murtagh, of Burt, and E. B. ^ddy, of Buffalo Fork, were also of the 'party, The audience packed Music Hall to fulness. Rev, •Bagneli delivered a , very graceful speech of introduction! The Northwestern ba3 at last put on the train for which there has been such an earnest demand by the use of which parties in Northern Kosswth are enabled tq visit the county se'at and re' turn on the same day* This tram is a freight and it reaches Algona r)oro the north af&SQ a, ro. leaves Algona at 7:80 p, m, This gives ten hours for business in- Algona.' K will be, a tt«eh appr&eiated addition to -om? day contained no- attention .of it, and the report that she was buried in Algona was probably untrue. WEST UNION LITERARY, It Rises Above the Mercury and Discusses a Great Question—The officers Are Vindicated by a Re-Election. After having beerl frozen out for the past two weeks, the West Union literary society held a meeting, February 14. The literary program was very short, owing to the uncertainty whether there would be a meeting, that evening< so many on the program not being present. It was the regular night for the election of officers, but short work Was made of it by the re-election of the old officers*, Mr. Goetchs for President and Mr. Hohn for secretary. The discussion of the question, "Be- solved that foreign immigration should be prohibited,'* Was carried on m_the affirmative by Joe Zanke, Henry Kennedy and Mrs. Goetchs* and in the negative by Miss Butler and T. J. Julian. The decision Was in favor of the negative. The question for February 21 will be, "Besolved that Lincoln did more for his country than Washington. The president has the negative and he says it will be the best debate ever given in the school house, and what he says is accepted as law by this community. For February 28, leaders were appointed and a question selected, but the opinion of the house was that such a question was no question that they want to listen to, so a new one will be selected next week, or new leaders put on who have the interest of the society at heart, and will do their utmost to fulfil the parts alotted to them. Ihe society is going to run until the time set for adjournment, March 7, and it anyone thinks he can break it up or carry on in the way they did last Thursday night, he is mistaken. Order will be preserved by the president, and those who do not wish to conform to the rules of good behavior had better not come. SAD CASE OF MISS WARD. Home From the Asylum to Die—Her Mania Led Her Abroad and Into Danger at Night. County Clerk* Grose has received a letter from the superintendent of the Independence asylumstatingthatMiss Anna S. Ward, who had been an inmate of that institution for the past two \ears, had been taken by her brother to the home of her sister, Mrs. Beynolds, of Armstrong. The letter stated that she was suffering from consumption and was beyond recovery. This case has a sad history. Miss Ward's relatives were very anxious to keep her out of the asylum, but they found it impossible to protect her from her mania for wandering and could not answer for her safety. She frequently escaped at night from the window of her room in the second story, and was as likely to undertake nocturnal trips in the winter as in the summer. She on one occasion was found nearly frozen to death and one night she traveled nearly twenty miles, and was found near Bancroft. AN OLD SETTLER. Mrs. L. Whitham Dies Wednesday Evening.
