News of the marriage of Guy Tuttle and Miss Marguerite Parr, at Pasadena, has been received,'but the newspapers, descriptive of the interesting event, are, yet on tbe road, Marriage licenses were issued, last week, to Chester Button and Emma Hodges of Imngton, to Jno, B, Pah- kuk and Lena Selir-ader, and to W, E.

We like more of that sensation here at home. Mrs. J. T. Bloor and daughter came home from Chicago Monday afternoon. They went there in the hope of securing surgical treatment that would benefit the latter, but were disappointed. They are staying in Algona at present. The Estherville Eepublican says: Hon. 0. L. Lund, of Algona, was in the city Monday. Mr. Lund is having some experience with tuberculosis cranks. He should give them a dose of their oWtt treatment. Thus fat he has beaten them at every turn. The management of the opera house have booked the famous Georgia Min- istrels for a date for the last Week in this months Dates have also been made with Tisso's Living Pictures and Molmey's Wedding company to appear in May* She infant child of Mr, and Mrs. Peter Larson died last week, two Weeks old, and its funeral Was attend* ed on Friday by a large number of sympathizing friends, the services being conducted by Rev. Eifstrom at the Swedish Lutheran church. John Reed has closed out his dry goods and given up his quarters, the front vacated being already appropriated by Call & Swetting for their office, Doxsee & Shaw will occupy the eastern section and will be at home there in a short time. The report that Frank Lull was, going down to Britt to run a restaurant was unwarranted. Mr. Lull looked up the matter and found the opening was not what he wanted, so he retains his position in the Hundson & Langdon store. A good many reports being circulated are equally unreliable. It is expected that Emmetsburg, Burt and Wesley will together need at least 100 tickets to the Ingalls lecture, and the county at large will be well represented in the audience. It is realized that it is not often that the opportunity is afforded to see and hear so distinguished a man. It has been many years since the water was so low in the east branch of the DesMoines river at this time in the spring as it is now. In nlaces the current shrinks up to only a fewfeetwide. The Jones & Stacy mill was able to run by water power for several days last week, however. Parish & Frise have been obliged to put in another big stock of "Majestic" ranges. They have to send in prompt and timely orders or they ;find themselves unable to supply the demand. The range is taking the place of the stove, which is no longer regarded as a requisite to domestic felicity. Jacob Markle was a caller at the REPUBLICAN office last Thursday. Here- ported his small grain all in in good shape, the ground being in fine condition. Mr. Markle has been a Kossuth county farmer .for nineteen years 'and is very well satisfied with the way the. county has treated him. He is one of our prosperous farmers. • In laying sidewalk and planting trees it is well enough to make'sure of your ground. M. W. Ferguson has .been obliged to move both because too far out. .There was no compulsion about moving them], but he wanted 1o move his trees, which are fine hard maples, while young. It is not always safe 'to line up with your neighbors. The REPUBLICAN would not have mentioned the matter, but it is out now. The Courier calls attention to the singular coincidence that while the doctors were in consultation in Doctor Garfield's office last Tuesday, a dray load of coffins was being unloaded at A. D. McGregor's undertaking establishment just across the street. The city council was in session Monday as a board of equalization, but made no changes except to put back the valuation on the Courier real estate and on a few lots belonging to C. E. Heise, to the original assessed valuation. The changes made by the board were all increases and the total addition to the assessed valuation of town property was about $5,000. It is a coincidence that Mr. Ingalls is to be in Algona on Arbor Day. Now Kansas being a Granger state, and Mr. Ingalls a representative Kansan, may we not presume that he is great on planting trees. And would it not be a beautiful and impressive, and and perhaps instructive spectacle to see Mr. Ingalls plant a'tree, say, on the .court house square, A committee might be appointed,—but there's the rub: who shall appoint the committee? Auditor Calkins and Chairman Chubb are a committee to take in hand the building of a double vault on the west side of the court house, for the use of the auditor and clerk. It is the plan to give up the present vault of the auditor to the recorder, and that of the clerk to the treasurer, and to build a vault 19 feet wide and 24 feet long. All the vaults are too small and Business is greatly inconveniepped, Setehell & Setchell's store is resplendent this spring with all those beautiful adornments so dear to the feminine heart, but whieb, it is alleged, a,re not dear to pay for, The millinery this spring may fairly be described as eharming, ancl the variety is bewildering, but not too mucli so. Ladies' fur* nismngs and dress trimmings also are there, and with the dressmaking force busily at work, the ladies gap get at those headquarters -about everything requite to. «pfcfrs%»^.«^e^a^e^a^^ ur i H 9 i i i i $ 9 * 3 t 9 i 0 9 * 9 ave You Seen It? $ 3 * 9 $ 9 # The Best Buggy for the Money on the Market.

Wilfrid P, Jones, t % *t! *; •fi 'i The directors of the Algona Co-Operative Creamery company held a meeting Monday and selected a butter- maker to take the place of Peter Larson, who goes to Chafer, Minnesota, the last of the month. John Hanna, who has been working in the Burt creamery as second man, w,as decided on, and it is expected that he will be on hand in a few days. The creamery is doing better, Mr. Larson says, than it ever did before, and the prospects are good. The institution is in good hands, the officers and directors being N. A. Pine president, W. C. Hart ..vice president, Myron Schenck secretary T. II. Lantry treasurer, L. W. Parsons and A. H. Paine directros. Nicest!

Grant from a Southern Standpoint," and probably nobody was worse disappointed in regard to it than Dr. Strickland himself. But the condition of his throat forbade his appearance upon the platform then. He will be here tomorrow night, and;his lecture, it is confidentially expected, will be one of the most popular 9f the seaton. A southern man's estimate of the great soldier will be interesting, surely, to a northern audience. THE SUCCESSION. '.J, E. Blackford. J.J.Wilson. Tom Harrison. B. H. Spencer. A. D. Clarke. 0. L.
