The Cedar Rapids orchestra will furnish the music. Dr. West will remain in Ajgona. His residence and oflice will be in the Grove house, one block south of Tennant Hotel. The river has been on the rise for the past week and now carries a full supply of water for spring drownings and other purposes. The corn planting is already well advanced and there will be little of it to do after this week. The raintt called a halt for a time. The Remenyi concert, to be given on Wednesday evening, May 22, in Algona, will be an interesting event to all lovers of music. ' There will be a meeting of the lacjies of 'the A! L. • A. in tli'e .reading , room Friday, May 10, at 3 o'clock, Air ladies-are cordially invited. At the regular annual meeting of the Algona Opera House company, held last night, Manager Haggard was unanimously reelected asAvere all the old officers. W. J. Studley has rented from W. C. Danson the old Geo. Adams property, and will move in as soon as the painters and paperhangers get through with it. The selection of an erator for Memorial day id yet undecided. It it understood that Dr. McCoy will secure a speaker for the occasion while at Clinton, There was a serious decadence of conviction on the subject for a time, but at present it is unanimous that spring is the most delightful season of the year. Bishop Perry will visit Algoua Saturday, the llth inst., accompanied by Archdeacon McElroy, and will hold service in St. Thomas church at II 1 o'clock a, m. Mrs. Frank C. Tubbs died yesterday morning, aftergiving birth to a child. She. was but eighteen years of age. The case is a particularly sad one and calls for deep sympathy. The Epworth League business meeting will be held Friday evening at the church, "All are requested to be present. Business of importance will be transacted. The district meeting of the Christian Endeavor Societies will be held in Algona somewhere near the middle of next month. It will be a great occasion, About 800 delegates are expected. One of the chimneys on Geo. Simpkins' residence was struck by light' ning one day last week, but no serious damage was done. The lightning went off on a tangent nlo g the water trough.

This year a one-fare rate, straight, will be offered for round trip where the amount exceeds 87. It looks as though the democrats were getting the start of us. For a second time the Courier has snatched the premium list of the county fair from its republican contemporaries. However, the society will get a good job. The program which was due Sunday night at the M. E. church, prepared by the Woman's Home Missionary Society. was postponed till next Sunday evening on account of the stormy weather. It is expected to be an interesting program. The Algona Deposit and Loan asso- tiation sold 525 shares of running stock during the month of April. This was the largest business ever done by this concern in any month of its existance. It is getting to the front, so to speak. Miss I'liima Hall had the misfortune to run a rusty nail through her foot last week, making a quite serious and very painful wound. Shu will not be able to walk for a week or so. This is a serious blow to a part of the Iteruu- LICAN force. Word came last Friday of the death of the infant son of Archie Hutchison at Jennings, La. The news elicits many expressions of sympathy with the bereaved parents. Mrs. Ambrose A. Call, mother of Mrs. Hutchison, and son Chester departed for Louisiana Saturday. As soon as the present form of money orders run out a new form is to be to- sued. In shape it will resemble the bank draft, and will be equally as safe a means of transmission as the former order. The present form, which has been in use only a short time, has not given satisfaction. The Mitchell Association of Congregational churches, of which the Algona church is a member, holds its semiannual session at Spencer, beginning May 21st and continuing four days. It will be an interesting gathering, and is so close by that numbers of Algona people can easily attend. The social union program given in this paper, presages a pleasant evening. We are to have a. paper on consumption by Dr. Kenelick and another on lhe Papal power .in Italy by Mr. Malson, with music by some ot our most popular singers. The ladies who conducted a dress making business in the A. D. Clarke & Co. building, two doors south of the REPUBLICAN oflice, have moved, put, and D. T,.-.Smith has taken possession of it for headquarters .of : 'the United; States Express office. The office'and location are all that could be desired. C. L. Lund is one of the men who saved his evergreens. The way he did it was to water them well before winter set in, then this spring he dug trenches around them and hauled water in his tank and gave them a thorough soaking. It was time and money well spent. Prof. Lilly has been called to Hancock frequently of late in his capacity of surveyor. He is doing the surveying on a big ditch Hancock county is investing in this spring. The professor came home last week, as it .was too wet down there to make progress. The Iowa Homestead of May 3rd has an article covering Mr. Lund's experience with tuberculin, including the result of the'postmortem examination of the cows made 'by Prof. Baker, It comes rather late, of course, but the discussion of conclusions is not untimely. The Homestead accepts the outcome as a vindication of the scientific accuracy of the test. The ork which has been going ahead in the Geo. C. Call building for three weeks is neariugcompletion, the vaults being in and the partitions up. Mr. Call will have the west office, Dox : see & Shaw the east, and E. V- Sweeting the two rear rooms, with a very convenient ao'cess by a front entrance. The whole building will have furnace heat. The fatigue uniforms of Company F were condemned by the inspector Saturday night, and the company are go* ing to draw a new lot of suits from tlje state. Capt. Haggard says that there will be a drill held at the armory Thursday night, May Sth, instead of Wednesday night when measures will be taken, and any man not present will not be entitled to draw a new uniform, In a little over an hour, Friday, one and eighty-five hundredths inches of rain fell, according to the records of Mr. Pettibone, our observer for the state weather bureau. The rain came down in sheets, with thunder, lightning and hail accompaniment. There had been no such deluge for several years, and the abundant precipitation was taken generally as the beginning of a new dispensation, J?ow that GPQ, L.

This, the doctor thinks, will probably end .Biking's life in the course of a year. He is £9 years old and has a family. Alderman Vesper find Clerk Cohe- noiir have been studying city 11 nances of late, and they have reached conclusions touching the expenditures for the year ending March 1, 1895, as follows: Extending mains and digging well. $9.995.50; running expenses, $1,740.53; city government, $205.64; street work, 81,275.38; street lighting, $294.89; miscellaneous, $72.24,'or a total of $18,684.50. Deducting the permanent investments, we find that the running expanses of the town for the year were $3,589. Algona cannot have electric lights until she is willing to pay about $900 more for street lighting than she now does, making the annual expenditure $1,200. This is substantially what is paid by other towns of its class, and a company cannot safely invest money in a first class plant, which we should have if we have any. without a substantial guarantee of revenue of that amount. With such a guarantee the investment; would be a safe one, and it would be made, probably, on the granting of a franchise. Perfectly regardless, apparently, of the adage that "charity begins at home," Dr. Garlield is going about on errands of mercy for other towns. The \Vhitteiuorc Champion says: Dr. L. K. Garfield was on our streets JMday, looking over the telephone prospects, and it is reported that we are to have telephone Connection with Fenton, Fair-ille and other places in the near future. This will be a .great convenience and we hope to sec it constructed soon. The West Bend Journal truly says: "James Taylor, of Algona, understands and appreciates the use of printer's ink in advertising.. See his cloak and millinery ad on the last page." There is nobody who has greater confidence in the protit of advertising than has Mr. Taylor. The reason why he believes in it is that he has tried it, and by that means, and by dealing fairly, liberally and honorably, he has built up as fine a business as is enjoyed by any merchant in this section.of Iowa. Bishop Perry is this week attending the Episcopal convocation in Fort Dodge. On the adjournment of that body he will come to Algona, arriving on the morning Milwaukee train from the west at 10:12. He will hold a service in St. Thomas church at 11 o'clock and take the Northwestern train south at 3:05 in the afternoon. The Bishop has been in Algona frequently, and his pulpit efforts have received an attentive and appreciative hearing from a wide circle of admirers, and there will doubtless be a large attendance Saturday morning. Company F were inspected Saturday night by Inspecting Officer Lieut. \Vil- kius, of the Regular Army. The company showed up the beat, since it, was organized. There were over fifty men in uniform in line. Down at Mason City, where they have one of the crack companies of the regiment, there were only sixteen men out to inspection, the other evening.

For the M y term of court, which opens on the 20tb instant, with Judge Quartern presiding, the petit jurors will be: L. W. Henderson, Clark Peck, A. D. Paine, Peter Purvis, II. J.

Holtzbauer's .name will probably go thundering and lightning down the ages as the champion dandelion killer, it is supposed that Matt.' ; would rather kill a dandelion ; tban .eat a meal of bad victuals. The way Matt, kills the dandelion is not quite like th way the wicked brother killed the king oil Denmark, but Matt, goes around with 11 can of gasoline and pours "if few drops of the liquid upon the dandelion's crown. The effect is more or less instantaneous and that dandelion i\ever has perfect health again. It rots out or dries up, and disappears like the democratic majority. Or like a snowtlake oii.tho river, A moment white, then lost forever. A singular school case is coming before superintendent Reed from Cresco township, the facts iu regard, to which are these: S. H. MeXutt is director for his sub-district and also secretary of the district-township board, Last term be w-auted the school in his district himself and he was employed as teacher by the board. Po,i the present term he applied for the school and Mrs, EU Mantor also applied, and petitions for each of the applicants were sent in to the board, and that body employed Mrs, Mantor. Mr, MoNutt questions the authority ot the board, and takes the ground, we understand, that the applicant having the bjggist petition should have.knocked the persimmons, The R$t'UBi4<pAN hastens to lay her fore itsi readers for "their serious con? sideration the following special from Aukjey, Iowa; The lady bicyclers of this place are the first onus in this section-to don the bloomer costume, the propriety of wearing which has been warmly discussed in all , purts of the country, The cpstume nttvaeted but little attention Hn<J $be riders m-e highly pje^sesj witl) the suit, which graanpi- pates, tl^m, from the pnjflberspu^e skirt jtluit «spf$os, the lady rider/ from pro.

The program will be in- and teachers can give such eminence in discussion to any topic tlivy desire. It appears that many the teachers have expressed a wish at their debates in future meetings allowed to continue on any subject long us there seemed to be any de•e to do so. Want of time to discuss papers read at the last meeting. Id at this place, prompted this re- cat. All teachers attending the iceting are asked to be ready to pre- int HUM- methods for dealing with ll'ercnt school matters and to show a 'omi>tnessin asking questions. Mr. Iloran, Superintendent of the liter works, with four men to help in, put in most of Wednesday night ailing the sand out of the bottom of stand pipn. It was found to be loiu four feet deep, and was packed 'rd at the bottom. There were np- rds of twenty loads of shaly sand, -K what was carried out through t (e mains. The draining of the pipe gau about 7 o'clock in the evening, d the work was not done until 3 in t e morning. This was the first time t e stand pipe has been cleaned out ace its erection, but it is presumed jilt the greater quantity of the depos- accumulated since the new well \ as finished.
