It did not last long and did no damage. Frank Fields is the new jeweler at Bowyer's. He is a good Workman and will make a very popular clerk. The Courier says that Algona will be represented in the Jim Weaver silver convention at Des Moines, June 5. The Algona baseball nine opened the campaign for 1895 by winning a game from Lu Verne on a score of 34 to 10. Col. E. S. Ormsby, u candidate for governor from the tenth district, was a visitor in Algona for a short time yesterday. Frank Farley, who bought the Ed. Thomas place near Sexton, has come up from Iowa county and taken possession. ;,.'.. : There was a meeting of the school board last week, but aside from the allowances of bills no business was transacted.

Next day, Friday, came a cold Wave, and Friday night there was a light frost. There was a large audience at the Episcopal church Saturday, to greet, Bishop Perry, and quite a representation of business men were present. The Bishop gave a very line sermon. He went south at 3:05 o'clock, over the Northwestern, having an appointment at Boone for Sunday. A tea and card party at the borne of Geo. E. Clarke this evening is given in honor of Miss Aimee Wallace* by Misses Gertie and Lulu Clarke. Miss Wallace goes to Chicago Friday to accept a position as bookeeper with her father. She will be greatly missed from Algona society, in which she is Very popular. Sunday afternoon was one of tlie times to try men's cyclone cellars. There was no cyclone, but it looked for a moment as if there might be one right away. • Such false pretensions provoke the reflection that if a man had a Cyclone cellar and knew when to get into it, he could reduce his life insurance rate. When Melzar Haggard was re-elected Manager of tlie Opera House Company he announced that he could not take the office again; and'he insisted on it so (irmly that a new man had to be chosen. Accordingly the directors met last night'and elected Sid Blossom. Mr. Blossom has held the place heretofore and will make a good manager. J. J. Ryan has furnished an elegant suite of rooms in the postofflce block, where he will be found, henceforth! Mr. Ryan has a very artistic eye in sel- ectingfurriiture, and both office and chamber furniture are of a very handsome pattern, and he will serve equally as well for housekeeping as for bachelor quarters. Mrs. Quick, mother of Mrs. F. H. Vesper, who has been a resident of Algona some, three years, had. a stroke of apoplexy Sunday night which at first threatened a fatal termination. The patient rallied in a short time, however. Mrs. Quick is 74 years of age, and is much iJeloved by Her acquaintances. She is improving and will soon be up. ....-..' ' Mr. Matsoii was unable to be present :attheSociarUniouClub meeting Friday night, and Dr.Kenefick was called out o£ .the church to visit a sick man before his turn came to read, so that the literary program was decidedly impromptu.' Rev. 0. A. Stevens read'a paper prepared on short notice to take Mr. Matsori's place, and the musical program was excellent. moh will be delivered.' by Mr.viiE. , McElroy one .week .from next Sunday morning. , : • ., ' •."•••< ; >' ' Mrs. Orange Minkler is reported much better, and Mr, Minkler proposes' to go to Independence and bring 'heir' home if her improvement turns'out >'tp : be permanent.

It will be a free pitch-in for everybody; No programme has ;been'made out..' Mrs. W." B..

Mr, , Lund has killed his condemned cattle and fed them to the hogs, and now we await results in regard to' the latter, hoping there will arise no necessity for the application to them' of • the tuberculin test. The county board lias settled 'with the insurance companies for the recent damage to the court house by lightning, receiving $215. Architect T, H. Conner estimated the job ot! repairing the damages and offered to do it for the amount stated. Wm. Cleaiy had a flne patch of potatoes before the frost and they are just us fine now. He sayed'them simply by covering the tops with dirt. It took him till one o'clock in the morning to do the job. Ambitious potato growers should paste this in their hats, Advertised letters: Miss Mari An. drews, Ed Belknap, J. F. Oook, Mr, Godfrey, Edward Boone Mendson, G G, Manley, Jalius Rpsentteid, W.

' ; The .municipal election at Ledyard' last Thursday, resulted in the election •of Andy Dunlap for Mayor by, nine majority in a vote of 98. We have received a letter signed "A. B. C." making some statements and comments which we hold for permission to .append the proper signature. ; ; . The United Workmen- at- their last week's meeting appointed a committee to secure subscriptions of stock for the erection of a two-front; brick to adjoin Gilmore's brick on the east, and the enterprise, which has been favorably considered for some time, is being taken up with the intention to push it. The lodge is strong, having about 100 members, and the enterpris can easily succeed. .... It appears that while tlie tornado which swept over some of the counties west of us two weeks ago was making havoc of life and property there were shakings up in many outside quarters, We have a letter from Seneca township which says that "the same cyclone came very near the Coffin farm and threw clown some large trees on the place. It was very frightful in appearance and the darkness was like a pall over the land." Night Watchman Geo. Hunter pulled Link Singleton at an early hour Sunday morning for tlip too free use ot aguuwhile on a "toot." Singleton was placed in jail, and being decidedly under tho Influence hu broke out ail tlie glass he could reach. When Mayor Haggard footed up his bill Monday morning Link found he was out eight to ten dollars for repairs, besides the costs and a Von dollar fine, Mayor Haggard split the latter in two on Link's promise of good behavior. Supt, B. F. Reed, with his usual forethought and enterprise, lias secured excursion ri^es for the teachers attending the Bancroft convention of batur- day nest, There will be a o«p and one' third rate t'oy the round trip to parties of ten ov move, which will be 65 cents from Algona.

They had wofd of the digging, however, and were somewhat toOllifled by the news that in a well of 112 feet there were 70 feet I of water. We leave the REftifiticAN readers to guess what Will be the disposition to this bill. The barn and all the outbuildings, grain, hay and machinery on the C. F. Calkins' farm, near Burt< burned at an early hour this morning. There was insurance to the amount of $400, which will only partly cover the loss. Mr. Calkins' son, Craig, who was recently married, lives on the place. The fire is supposed to have been caused by tramps. The concert at the Baptist church Monday night, given bytheoSTorwegian violinist, Aatnold, assisted by home talent, was a very successful musical entertainment. Mr. Aarnold did his part in a manner to win the delighted applause of his audience, and the contributions of Algona musicians were of a high order and much appreciated. The parts'rendered by Algona musicians consisted in a duet by Dr. Alt. Hist, a piano solo by Mrs. Geo. C. Call and Mrs. J. T. Chrischilles, and a couple of pieces by a quartette consisting ot'D. T. Smith, Fred Fuller, Geo. Hamilton and Dr. Rist. At the Episcopal convocation at Fort Dodge Rev. Geo. Leslie, of Algona, read a paper on "The Needs of the Diocese, both of Money and Men." The Messenger says Mr. Leslie gave an account of his labors in Florida among the Seminole Indians. _ He gave a detailed narrative of the interesting, but very difficult work, and showed how the younger Indians were enthusiastically earnest in seeking to learn of American ways and American institutions. This work is very difficult on account of the scattered condition of the Indians. Hobart has been not a little agitated and torn up over the transfer of the postoffice from J. H. Cook to Join: Grove, the announcement of whicl came as a-complete surprise last week The old and new officials are business competitors, each running a genera store. It is presumed that the rernov al>of Mr. Cook is due wholly to his be ing a good republican. He has been an efficient and accommodating officer He did not know that the administra tion gun was loaded for sucli smal game as • the Hobart postoffice, the emoluments of which average abou $32 per year.. .... The entire northwest has been nude the cloud since Friday. From the hot test May day'for many years, as Frida was said by the wiseacres to have been, tlie temperature dropped down below tlie freezing point, arid over large areas'-of the northwest snow storms and .hailstorms prevailed. In this immediate locality thorn was one heavy frost and a hailstorm, which seems to have bfjeu gem-nit tiver Una county, and .which' 1 sted only u tv-w minutes, doing .some damage, in cutting tlowri small grain. Thu frost luus damaged small fruits'and setback such potatoes as were up. Very little corn was above ground, to be wilted. The Library Association has been very fortunate in:securing brary quarters, and fortunate again in the: terms of the lease.. Tlie. Grand Army Post has tendered the association the free -use of the lower floor of Memorial Hall for a term of three years. The space available will be partitioned-into twoa'pornsf one. tif-Which 'Will be':used 'for the librarVproper'arta the other'for a,'reading room',''and 'both will be well lighted and : roomy. A door will be put in the north side, a hard "floor will be la,id>, and paint and 'paper will be put on by the association, and soon we shall have a very satisfactory home for this popular institution. The liberality Of the'Postus to be commended. t C6faes Off May iatrd, at the Coftgre gational Ghtirch. The appearance of Mr. Edouard lemenyi in concert last evening was ne of the most exceptional treats that ould have been offered to even the most critical audience. Mr. Remenyi s heralded as the greatest living violin 'irtuoso, and the claim will be readily .onctdecl, as it would be hypercriticism o compare him with any violinist who aas visited this country, so thoroughly inique and typical is his playing.—St. Paul Pioneer Press. Remenyi's opening number was a loncerto for the violin, in three move- nents, by Mendelssohn, which xvas ex- luisitely played and won a hearty re* iall. Chopin's "Choral Nocturne" and Sarasate's "Zapateado" were the second. His third number, the Pagaliini 'Caprices." was the masterpiece in interpretation as well as i i composition. —San Francisco Bulletin. Remenyi. the violinist, received a perfect ovation last evening at the Lyceum theatre. A good house greeted him and the enthusiasm was more than proportionate to the numbers. When he appeared witli the benevolent, clerical air of a priest, his popularity crystallized in prolonged applause, and at every instant on the stage he rose in favor, lie-is without a rival in his'ability to interpret music in a realistic, tangible way that appeals to everyone. His violin scolds, sings, weeps and laughs, the sudden unexpected change of .sentiment gives brilliant piquancy to his execution. At one moment the speaking instrument is all tenderness, at the next it breaks into a witticism, and laughs in trills of contagious mirth. At times his touch is so delicate that the bow seems only to hover like a majic wand above the responsive . strings. Every shade of feeling, he expresses.— Minneapolis Times. ••--.» PERSONAL MENTION. Thos. Gray, of Wesley, was a visitor in Algona on Monday. Supervisor Chubb spent the most of last week in northern Kossuth. A. W. Moffiatt goes today, with his family, to Euglewood, Illinois, to take possession of the residence which he traded for some time since. There will be si universal feeling of regret at the departure of this estimable family. : C. E. Butcher, of Webster City, is up •for a short stay in our city.

His resignation, together with that of Sargeant Major.-Peek's was sent to Col. Foster Monday.- The reason for this step 'is their inability to afford the time and money, Required of the positions. Mr. Haggard has been captain of Company F for'the past three years and has made a very popular officer. He leaves the company in the best shape it ' has been in since its organization, and has reason; to feel proud of his work with the comnany. Every member of the company has signed a paper regretting his resignation and petitioning the colonel not to accept it, but to -retain him as their captain. This is a high compliment, and it is to be hoped Mr. Haggard will reconsider his.decision. Embroideries, white goods and laces at Setchell &SetcbeU's, Tryrour Club House corn and toma- oes.
