Lund was in Chicago on election day and got into the middle of a big fight. When the combatants got to close quarters he escaped into a democratic saloon close by where he was safe and everybody was good natured. He says many of the best democratic voted for-Swift. A Dr. Canter,-a Russian eye specialist who has occasionally "made" Algona, was arrested and fined $30 for assault and battery done at Hopkinton last week. Then the populace, who thought he didn't give the other fellow enough, petitioged to have the fine ree mitted and it was reduced to $1. .; : JSTow the spring rains have commenc: ed why not put in that cistern. Spuiv beck & Lambert will furnish you cisterns, water tanks and pumps so cheap that you cannot afford to be without them. They have a large stock of hose and hose fittings.

He is a brother of the president. Joel Hubbel, of Chicago, adjuster for the Farmers of York, was in town on Thursday for the purpose ot adjusting the loss of Hatty podge, on his meat market stock. He offered Mr. Dodge $270, which the latter refused, and so Mr. Hubbel went away without having reached A settlement, and the consequence presumably is that if. Mr. Dodge gets anything it will be after he has been awarded it in the courts. Hon. j. J. Ityan and John Geoders represented theKossuth county untefri* fled at the Mason City banquet in celebration of Jefferson's birthday last Tuesday evening. Mr. Ryan was one of the speakers, discussing "The HaW* aiin Question, or the Woman in Politics." The Mason City Gazette says that "Mr, Ryatt from the jump captur^ ed the audience, and it was seldom, if ever, we heard so much Wit in so short a space of time." Census figures of population are com* ing in from time to time. We can re* port the following: LuVerne incor* porated tdwn 352, LuVerne township 393, Wesley 612, Wesley township 626, Burt township 600, Garfield 539, Sherman 603, Cresco 463, Irvington 705, Prairie 658, Union 662, Fenton 560, Greenwood 445, Ledyard 704, Whittemore township 406, German 689, Burt incorporated 341.

McCain, Mrs. Ida Mohair, James Moore, Mr. McManus, W. H. Myner. "Hank" Stebbins has started out in the ten-cent delivery business. Mr- Stebbins is one of the early settlers and one of the best known citizens ot the place, and is noted for his prompt and faithful attention to any business which he may undertake. We look to see Mr. Stebbins rake in many dimes by means of. this extension of his business. He still does the delivery business of Mr. Lund and other old customers. . Peter Larson has resigned his position as butter maker of the Algona Co-Operative creamery and occepted a like situation in a creamery at Chafer, Minn., a town some 40 miles northeast of St. Paul, whither he expects to take his departure about the first of next month. The directors of the Algona creamery will hold a meeting next Monday, when they will probably elect a successor to Mr. Larson. The latter has been a very capable and popular man, and it will be difficult to fill his place with one as good. There was a very enjoyable meeting of the Social Union club Friday evening. The Mandolin club rendered two pieces, which-were received with great applause. Miss Waters read a very interesting paper on the seal fisheries. Mr. Ryan sdng a song, with Miss Wartman as accompanist. This was a new role for Mr 1 . Ryan, who confessed that he^ike'd tine song particularly, f or t its charming sentiment and didn't care a snap for the 'tune. Miss Jessamine Jones read a paper on the influence of fiction. Ex-Supervisor Rawson submitted his poor farm report at the meeting of the board last week. From this it appears that there was expended on the farm $2,001.34, and that $747.64 was in improvements, the inventory of produce, machinery, etc., answering for the balance. The sales of produce amounted to $674.42. There was raised on the farm 577 bushels of oats, 107 bushels of barley, 800 bushels of corn, 2 bushels of beans, 80 bushels of potatoes, 30 tons of hay and four bushels of seed corn. The farm raised two calves and 85 pigs.' ' Mayor Haggard circulated a subscription paper Friday, and in a few minutes secured $25.25 for the benefit of Mrs. Oleson who, with her husband, lives near the Milwaukee depot. The money was turned over to Algona ladies, who will see that it is properly expended. Mrs. Oleson has consumption and has been sick some time. Mr. Oleson is employed'on the section, but has been ill, himself, considerable lately. There is no town in which the sympathy of the people is more quickly touched by distress, or whose citizens respohd.more quickly and substantially than Algona. Mr. W, Allen, who was a,t Clear Lake the past week, tells the Rockford Register about some shooting done there last Friday and Saturday by two gentlemen from Garner, The flight of geese and ducks during those days was something phenomenal—larger than ever<before known; this caused by the scarcity Pt bodies of water elsewhere. The ice bad not broken up in the lake and the birds alighted on the ice to rast, These parties went out to the eof the lake, .cut'out blocks of ie'e and built an ice house for a blind, then Piling their decoys out on the WALL PAPER have in stock nt present over Twenty Thousand Rolls of Wall Paper. We have carefully selected this line of Paper from all of the best factories ill the United States, and in making this selection we have succeeded in getting their very heat patterns. We are therefore enabled to show you as fine a line of Wall Paper as it is possible to produce. There is, as you undoubtedly know, a vast difference in the quality of papers, and it has always been our aim to buy nothing but the very best in every grade. E are better prepared to serve you in this line than tiny competitor, because have the Largest and Best Stock, and as for prices we can sell you paper from six cents per double roll up. Just stop and think, have you ever had an opportunity to buy Wall Paper as low as six cents per double roll. With paper at this price yon can paper an ordinary sized room for less than 50 Cts. Beware of fakirs "who canvass from house to house selling paper by the single roll aild charging you from 20 'to 50 per cent, more for inferior goods than legitimate dealers would charge you for good goods. E solicit you trade and arc always glad to compare quality, prices and patterns with any competitor in the county. You will find it to your interest to call and look our large stock over before purchasing. State St., Algona, la. F. W. DINGLEY, "The Druggist. ORATORICAL CONTEST.
