In ^ 4neAftW»flflteftWr.l J hw A question of title has arisen in the matter of the strip of ground recently bought of the Head estate by the county agricultural society* A. D. Clarke claiming a one-third interest in the ground. Mr. Clarke is quite willing to yield his title on certain easy and reasonable conditions, which will quite probably be complied with. There was a band of Gypsies in town the first of the week. They camped down near the fair ground and the women did a thriving business at fortune telling. Strange to say, however, nobody could be found yesterday morning, after their departure, who had patronized the fortune telling industry. c Peter Larson has bought half a carload of high grade Jersey cows atid a full-blood Jersey bull and ^yill take them to his new home in Minnesota. He bought four of the cows from Wolcott Hart, and the bull is from the herd of W. H. Clark. This is commendable enterprise. The Jersey cannot be beat for the dairy. The Milwaukee Company has a notice in this paper announcing a one- fare rate for the round trip to those wishing to attend the Clinton G. A. B. encampment. Parties can get a sleeper from Algona to Clinton for $2, which will run through -without change, leaving here at .6 in the evening and reaching Clinton at 6 o'clock the next morning. Since C. B. Matson and M. P. Haggard returned from Missouri they have had so many inquiries from parties desiring to locate in the south that Mr. Matson is going to Cedar Bapids to make arrangements for cheap rates. There are a number, of people from this locality,Phelps county, and they all speak in very high terms of the country.' Improved land sells there from $10 up. 1 Anyone wishing to locate in Missouri or look over the country can get cheap rates by seeing them. They expect to get away about May 15th. Melzar Haggard spent some time with the Bartlel t family at Dallas, Texas, on his recent southern trip. He says they are prosperous. J. W. ,Bartlett has charge, of the New England Loan and Trust business in the state of Texas, and employs a large force of clerks in his office. Byram has charge 'of H branch office at "Greenville,,and Fred is in partnership with a gentleman by the name'of Chambers in' the law business, with, a .good practice. Dallas is a lively town of 50,000, and is far ahead of, Galvestqn in matters, of >in yb'gue'Wlt '^ The 'LuVerne. News says: They-.say that one of the school ma'rns not a thousand miles from Algona met with a decidedly unexpected experience not long since. A little unruly fellow in school in:his first.year had been punished by being .kept after school. Finally the teacher said one evening severely: Joh'nny, this is the fourth nighbyou have had to'Stay with me after school." "I know it, marm;" said Johnny, "andif'any scandal comes. ,of it it won't be my fault." . The Algona 'newspapers are completely knocked out now on that council fight item. -The fight is at an end and everything is serene. The council at,its Saturday.night meeting elected W. II. Horah for water superintendent, by unanimous vote, and last evening the -Mayor named J.,B. Willey for Marshal,' and the appointment was promptly^ approved and $40 a month salary voted'. Then it was voted that 1 the present committees, meaning the council's committees, be continued for the year, and now everything is lovely. As the REPUBLICAN, called loudly for this very thing, it cannot complain. A private letter received at this office from Jos. W; Hays, formerly editor of the BEPUBLICAN, says: "I note with satisfaction that you have returned to an ' all home' print paper. I think you will like the 'all liorne' print idea the more the longer yoiv get along without patent insides, I am also glad to know that you have realized what was at one time my ambition—to have a folding machine and pasting arrangement in the office.

The Buffalo Center Tribune gives this account of the decease, near that place, of an early resident of this county, who was well known to most of our pioneers: The shock which always attends the announcement of a sudden visitation of death in the community was felt by our citizens for the third time within a few short weeks last Sunday afternoon, when the word was given out that John McKay, the aged parent of Mrs. Wm. Woodcock, Was dead. Mr. McKay was an unusually hale and heartv looking man for one of his age, and consequently no one thought that his earthly race was so nearly ran. On Sunday he seemed as well as usual, in fact, his son-in-law said it seemed to him the old gentleman appeared to be feeling and looking better than usual, and distinctly remembers thinking so as his venerable relative came down from his room and passed out of doors at about 2 o'clock in the afternoon— the time when the midday meal was about to be served. In a few minutes Mr. McKay returned aud taking his place at the table prepared his coffee and began to partake of the repast, but soon pushed back, saying he guessed he was not hungry and 'would- not eat. He returned immediately to his room, whither he was soon after followed by his daughter who asked him if he was not well. He then 1 spoke for the first time of his condition 'and complained of a severe headache. Mr. Woodcock was summoned to his bedside and had no sooner reached it than the old man' was seized With a sudden convulsion and expired within a few minutes. A doctor was called, but arrived only to ifindlife extinct and pronounced the cause apoplexy. John McKay was of Scotch extraction and was born in the province of New Brunswick, August 12, 1814. He was therefore eighty years, eight months rid nine days of age at the time of his death. He was married in 1836 to Margaret Tufts, who was of Irish 'parentage, and who continued by his side as'al'faitbful wife until December 28, 1883, when she died. Two sons and three daughters, all of whom survive, ei'e the fruit of their marriage. Of these one son oiid one daughter live near Algona, in Kossuth county, and one son and one daughter live in Wisconsin. In 1851 Mr. McKay came with .his'tamily to this country and settled near Manitotvoc, Wisconsin, where ,tbey remained until 1865, when they Removed' to Kossuth' county, - : settling n4ar'Algbha.

The funeral took place from the . Wppdcock residence Tuesday afternoon at2:3p'o'cl6cky'Kev. Eastman being in charge^ and ; was well -attended by sympathizing neighbors and friends.

Arming themselves with a spade, a shotgun and a revolver, they sallied forth and in a short time they succeeded in finding a hole which bore evidence of having been recently entered. They went to work diligently with the spade and after considerable digging they ran across the she-wolf which stuck her head., from the hole and was killed by a shot from the revolver. A little; more digging and ten sleek little wolves were unearthed. Mr. Doud brought the whole lotto town and exhibited them to the aud- .itor'and claimed the bounty, which* is •two 'Collars apiece on the young ones and five dollars on the old one, or $26 in al|j," Jt made a very profitable after- nopn4' work for the two meru 'We have beard of "litters :of i young i; nv6ive^ .in Whi'ch there were as many as six, but thi^ is the first of which we have heard where the number"' has- been as high as ten, and of course it' must be attributable to the great productiveness of Palo Alto's soil.; Can Kossuth or Emmet county beat it? • , ••'•NOTABLE : EVENTS. The'arbor day exercises of the public schools on Friday-last were attended by a large number of patrons, and by, the directors, and was a marked and pleasing success. Perhaps ,the numbers wiere swelled by the rumor that Senatordngalls would be present. Mr. Ingalls had not, however, arrived- in town when the exercises were held. A possible attraction; too, was the ' tree- planting by the directors, Miss Coate, assistant principal, conducted the exercises^ which were participated iu by the school children and were pretty and appropriate to the vernal celebration, From a practical if not an ex* perimental point of view it was fortunate that Janitor McMurray took the trees, which according to the strict letter of the program were to be planted by the directors, oui of the sun, where they were being carefully dried, and put the, roots in the ground. The officials themselves were content to throw into the half-filled holes a few well directed shovels of dirt, and no damage was done, The janitor's though tfuln'ess pulled the directors througli'one great crisis, as they were not called upon to determine which en'd of the trees should go into the ground, and the rest was • easy, No one can witness these simple, but interesting observances without hoping they may be repeated every year.
