St.iLouis^GJfl^e^Deino- Craf, one of the'brightest papers in tW cou'ntry'.' We'can supply the REPUBLICAN and Globe-Democrat for $2.30. l't is expected that Henry Simpkins will establish a new laundry if suitable quarters can be secured. The old plant was a very efficient one and had an immense business. There is an undoubted demand for such an institution. "Mrs. R. F. Hedrick, who is spending the winter at Asbeville, North Carolina, writes that she has seen more snow, -there during,the .month, ot February than for;thf last, fiv.e years here. She will probably not return before June. .The.teachers.are' again reminded of the County. Teachers' Convention to be held, Saturday at the High School building. The program will be found in'this paper. No doubt this ,wiU, be an interesting and serviceable meeting; -- ' News comes from Des Moines ^hat Miss Geneveye-Wheeler, the 9 r year-oW daughter of Mr. and Mrs, W. W. Wheeler, recently had her collar bone broken. She was riding, a, safety when she fell behind 'a horse,, .which, kicked her with the result, stated. Thos.-P. Baird and family, of Story countv, arrived last week and at once took possession of their farm in Cresco township wbich-Mr. Baird bought several months ago, known as the Bradley farm. Mr. Baird is one of those substantial men of whom the more any community'has the better, ' Some inquiry having been made in regard to club'tates ^ with' the Rural Life, a very popular newt arm Journal published by Matt Parrott & Sons at , \W t at§rloo t we \vill state .that advance pa'id subscribers of the 'REPUBLICAN Will be supplied at 8Qc,'The-regular subscription pr}cejs,$j,OQ.

Some of the best musical talent ofthe eity lias been secured, and no one who can spare ten cents .can at- ford to miss it.' Exercises begin at 1 and Liticolfi. He was a brother of Mrs. Rev. Bornard. who received a visit from him while in Algona. The REPUBLICAN is in receipt of a postal card mailed at Burt which said: r 'Please send my paper to Burt, Iowa." That was ail. The signiture was missing. Unless the writer thereof should chance to come across a copy of the REPUBLICAN containing this item he will wotider why iio attention is paid to his modest request. The papers say that Judge Thomas, at tHe last term of the district court in Clay county, in the case of Oliver Woods vs, the Davenport Insurance Co., ruled that a mortgage placed upon insured property without the consent of the insurance company, renders the policy void. Policy holders would do well to note this fact, as it may concern many of them. C. B. Sarchett and S. J. O'Neil arrived home from their trip to Missouri last week, and report that they werefaVor- ablv impressed by the country. Mr. O'Neil bought a one-third interest in a lead mine near Aurora and will settle there at once. Mr. Sarchett expects to go into business in the same town. He says the northern men are coming in there in large numbers. It was a great stroke of enterprise on the'part of the Courier, filling t\vo solid columns with interviews on the library tax. It got the paper before the public in great shape, as it did the men interviewed. Some of the latter were placed in a very uncomfortable position, and no doubt they resolved that if they lived through this thing they Would never talk for publication again if they knew it. Did any one who attended Sunday night's mass meeting fail to notice with what grace, and yet what force and effect the ladies Who took part presented their views? Could anything that could have been said have been more to the point and more telling, and yet have been presented with more womanly dignity than the addresses of Mrs. Horton and Miss Durant? Both of these addresses were models. Facetious remarks by the Germania Standard: J. C. Raymond was up from Algona Wednesday and did a little Work in his line of business. The 'Squire finds 'considerable chance to 'dispense justice in our town,as we quite often get puzzled over some knotty problem that nothing short of professional skill can'-settle. 'Squire Ray- imond never fails to restore tranquihty, 'and deal out justice to the satisfaction of all. Jointkeeeper Gallagher, Germania's contribution to Our jail boarding, outfit, has been at Emmetsburg the past week, in charge of the sheriff of Palo Alto county. He Was taken over there at'bis'request in order that he might be near his son, who was hurt by falling from a train near Cylinder while drunk. The younger Gallagher appears to 'have been a passenger ot the well known and liberally patronized road on which his father was a conductor. If past .results are to be considered one might suppose that the farther the son was from his paternal a'ncestary, the better he would be off. defense, Which, whether right at wrong should have been acquiesced mby ton prosecuting attorney, but he had rested his whole case on what was objected to and sustained, and like an unskillful general, neither had a way to retreat nor defenses put Up to check the en*my. The case was won for the defense at this point, because the prosecuting attorney lost his head. His opening argument to the jury showed this, for instead of showing up the prisoner, he turned all his vindictive spite on the defendant's attorney, who only laughed at his opponent's weakness. The case was very quickly decided by the jury in favor of the defendant. Had the plaintiff exchanged places with his attorney and managed the case himself we believe* he would have a good show of winning. 4 Next Thursday evening, March t, Will be the closing night, and an oratorical contest is on the program. Thei?e is complaint on all hands nst the-''state of things," and ono --- DEATH Of JOSHUA SHAFFER. Joshua Shaffer, of German township, died at his home last Thursday evening, after an illness extending over about three months. He had for several years been troubled with piles and fistula, and had become so reduced in strength that he Was in no condition to bear the surgical operation found to be necessary. Blood poisoning and pneumonia Ultimately set in and were the immediate cause of death. Mr, Shaffer was within a few weeks of 54 years of age. He was born in Maryland, of Pennsylvania German ancestry, but settled in Illinois, where he was married to Miss Sarah Isenberger, daughter of Henry Isenberger. He came to Grundy county, Iowa, some twenty-two years ago, and subsequently, along with a colony of his relatives, settled in Kossuth county, and opened the farm on which he died. Mr. Shaffer was a member of the M. E. Church, and led a consistent Christian life, doing good us he had opportunity, and winning the esteem and love of all who knew him. He was a true man in all the relatives of life. He leaves a wife and one son, Wm. Shaffer, twenty-two years of age. The funeral was on Saturday, the services being conducted by Rev. Haun, of Burt, and the remains being laid to rest in the Buffalo cemetery. TEACHER'S WILL MEET. The Teachers of the Public Schools of Kossuth County—Saturday, March g—The Program.

That is the place and time when all these little complaints should be brought to the attention of the council. If there is favoritism and tax-dodging it is the priviledge and the duty Of any man knowing of it to bring' it to the attention of the officials. The REPUBLICAN will further equal assessments in all proper ways, but it has 'little sympathy with men who scold oil'the'street corners, and do nothing to. make things right. PERSONAL MENTION.
