Hall has been receiving a lot of Vermont granite for monument purposes, and other stock is on hand to meet all demands.

Trees are going out of the Stacy nursery in unprecedented numbers this spring. Farmers from all parts of the county, and from outside counties, are hauling them away by the wagon'load, and raii;Bbipments are, heavier than before. The farmers hereabout, and also ihe villagers, :have become imbued with the tree-planting spirit, It Is a^ thing good to see.

Ban open pw Chairman Chubb advises us that the board have decided to put in an iron bridge 100 feet long, near St. Joe, about a mile south of the Divine bridge. This will be a solid iron bridge, built on the solidest kind of a foundation, and will be the first of the kind in the county. The board will receive bids for its construction at the June meeting, and notices have been sent to numerous builders, insuring a very lively competition. Did you ever notice how many idle young men there are in every town? They havn't anything to do and a great many ha^e no visible means of support, yet they live and look healthy and seem to be perfectly satisfied with their situation. This is the class that a little later, when they see their more thrifty acquaintances lay by some of this world's goods, will raise the hue and cry that there is a war between labor arid capital.—Corwith Hustler. Mayor Haggard wishes the attention of all the people called to the matter of cleaning up back yards and alleys and destroying all rubbish. The desirability of haying this work done promptly and thoroughly must be evident to everyone. And, by the \vay, let the city govsrnmet t clean up its back yard and get its spring work done. Let us have some sanitation, reconciliation, recapitulation, rehabil- 1 itation, resuscitation and reinvigoration. Dr. Strickland's address on "Grant, from a Southern Standpoint," delivered at the Baptist church last Thursday evening, was a masterly effort. The speaker was a captain in the Confederate army, but no man on the Union side ever, we think, pronounced a more fitting or more eloquent eulogy upon the great soldier and statesman. It was one of the best lectures that has been delivered here. It was one of the lectures which was not in any sense a disappointment. A. L. Peterson was down at St. Joe, Monday morning, and while the wind was at its highest he photographed two men on top of the spire of the Catholic church, which is 103 feet high. The men seated themselves upon the arms of the cross. The distance was too great to give the best results, but, all that photographic art could do in preserving the shadow e'er the substance should fade or flatten by premature descent from the dizzy height was done. Mr. Peterson speaks very highly of the community about St. Joe. They are ti genial, kindly people. 'Dr. George Inghain was married, on last Wednesday, in Olympia, Washington, to Miss Emma Beed of that city, who is the only daughter of the auditor of the state of Washington. The day of the wedding had for some time been set, but the occasion was saddened by news received in the morning of the death of the groom's sister. The ceremony over, Dr. Ingharn and bride took the train at once for Algona. arriving here Monday evening. Dr. Ing ham has been very successful in Olyin pia, and it would seem that his success has not been confined to his profession Tickets for the Ingalls lecture are selling rapidly, both in Algona and ii .neighbor towns. Emmetsburg will be :well represented in the audience, anc iBev. BagneU will head the delegation !Which:,w-ill.c0m'e over, on the regula ;Q O'clock train and return after the 'lecture. Burt has a large section re served' and Mr." Matson reports thai their seats are nearly all sold already Bancroft and Wesley each have a block ;of seats and other tow is will be repre se'hted. The farmers of the neighbor hood are buying seats, so asiiot to be left out when the time comes. The outlook is good for a^big house. The Arbor Day. program given in an other column will be found to contain 'one novel feature which will not tail to draw the madding crowd. Each of the school trustees is .to plant a tree ac cording to plans and specifications of his own, illustrating and exemplifying his favorite theory of tree planting Whether this signifies that a serious controversy has broken out in the board we are not informed.
