It is a notable coincidence that mmv&t Mdftmpfe erMitable dra- iaatic ptoduction than this Company gave us. There will be but one .general city ticket in the field ttext Monday. The democrats failed to nominate a ticket The only contest between candidates will be on aldefmert in the First and Third wards. The republican ward primaries held last Wednesday evening nominated candidates for alderman as follows: J. W, Wadsworth in the first, Wm. K. Ferguson in the second, C. W. Bates in the third, and Dr. E. E. Sayers, in the fourth. The outstanding bonds of the Algona Independ District amount to $4,000. They Will be paid off in full, it is expected, this year andttevt.

W, and D. W, Simes, of Grant township, were charged with stealing 80 bushels of oats, D. W. was discharged and W. W. was held to the grand jury.

There is a marked subsidence of the tuberculosis fever. Kinety-nine farmers out of every hundred have made up their minds that until they have some reason for thinking that their cows are sick they will not call in the horse doctor. In the meantime, neither man nor beast is wasting away with consumption. The LuVerne News says: A happy wedding took place at Irvington last Wednesday, the contracting parties being Miss W. Dutton and Ora Brown. The bride is a daughter of a well known and respected family of Irvington, and the groom is a young business man at WestT3end. May they enjoy their'full share of happiness. The arrangement in regard to voting next Monday is that the men will have the city and library vote on one ballot. The women will have only the library proposition on theirs, and all will go in one ballot box. The library ballot will have printed on it "For library tax," "Against library tax," or equivalent words, and the voting will be done by marking a cross in the square opposite the one is desired to vote. A well known republican of Union township writes to suggest that in yiew of a misunderstanding as to who is the republican committeeman for that township, and with the purpose of preventing trouble in the future, the matter might be adjusted bv a meeting of the republicans at the Herman school house at; the time of the township school meeting. It is well to get these disputes" out "of- the way and avoid head-end collisions. Ernest Bacon was in town Saturday posting bills for, which is to come off next Tuesday, March 5, at his Portland township farm, one and one-half miles east of Burt. He will sell without reserve everything movable on his well stocked farm, including 33 head of cattle, a lot 01' good horses, and his complete equipment of machinery. Mr. Bacon will run a free buss to and from B.urt for all those coming from a distance, and will serve a free lunch at noon. There is some prospect of the inauguration of a kindergarten in Algona. It is much desired by many who have children just a trifle too young to go to the 'public school. It is possible that Mrsi Lilly, who is familiar with the work, may organize one. Of the Kindergarten State Supt. Sabin says: "The kindergarten is no longer to be regard : ed as an experiment; it has established itself in public favor wherever it has been tried, Leading educational men and women regard it as an essential part of a good school system,. Its in" structions are calculated to shape and mould childish character at an age when it is very impressible, and when it is most in need of right direction. While the money expended upori any department of school work is money well invested, that which is expended in the earlier years of a child's life undoubtedly is most powerful ip shaping his future life. The Courier says the bottom has been knocked out of the PJumley will case, which it looked as thongb we should have forever with us, It says; The TJ.S- Land office at Washington has knocked the bottom clear out of any title the 'heirs qf the late S.
