Ingham has received his big tarpon, caught by him on his recent trip in Florida waters, mounted and ready for exhibition. It will be placed in the reading room as soon as the latter is reopened in the new quarters. The office quarters in the lleise block are now ready for occupancy, and J. J.

E. church, held quarterly meeting at Bancroft on Sunday, Bev. T. S. Cole, the pastor of that place, supplying his pulpit here. Kev.

For nearly two weeks it. has been chilly for coin and fruit .and much damage.has been done to the latter. Little corn was up and no considerable damage except to fruit, and garden vegetables has been reported. The cold weather has not only extended all over this country but apparently it has been felt in Europe. .-•••-• i ' .

He has bought a farm in the San Joaqtiifi valley, California, and expects to engage in the fruit business. He goes to Ceres, Stanislais.Vcounty, May 28th. He says this is the finest valley in California. The Christian Endeavor folks advertised "special features 7 ' for their social Friday night. The " special features" proved to be old photographs,' tintypes, daguerreotypes and ambrotypes of v; ell known people of thn community taken in their childhood, and made much sport. The IlEi'unLtcAN this week quotes at considerable length from Editor Roberts' book. "Coin at School in Finance." The IIEFUIVMCAN does not want to lay itself liable to the punishment of the copyright laws, but we do not know where any other piece of writing can be found of equal pertinence in the sizing up of Coin's book as this, nor anything which will be read with any greater interest by anyone with whom the subject of finance has a fascination. We call commend the whole book to the reading of every sincere inquirer after financial truth and senso. The book is as bright and its points as telling all the way through. It is rightly claimed to be the most important recentcontribution to the question from a popular point of view. The Odd Fellows of Kossuth county will, go down to Livermore in force on the'-ithof June, to celebrate the anniversary of the founding of the order, and they -.vill go by a special train which which will run from Ledyard through to Livermore without change. The fare will be a one and one-third rate for the round trip. The train will leave Algona at 9:80 in the morning and on the return trip will reach here about 0 p. in. It is expected that between 300 and 400 will go down. There will be big delegations from Wesley, Bancroft. Swea City and other towns, and the train will be fairly loaded down with Odd Fellows and enthusiasm. Getting this train for the through run was a great stroke of management, but the, Odd Fellows are alive.

The'state convention will be held July 10th. It is said that Chairman Haggard.will call the county coru- .mittee together to settle all' questions ; in regard to the county convention:: This would be the .salutary Custom which was the rule up to a few years ago, and it is to be hoped that the report is- Well founded. :; ' The : Wesley 'Reporter 'says rightly: Burt is enjoying quite a building boom- It couldn't do otherwise. Every town., in Kossuth .county is growing and will continue to do so. The exceptionally good' farming land in*being eagerly bought up by practical farmers from the more settled districts, and what was a few years ago a boundless, prairie today is a picture of industury, with splendid farm houses, outbuildings and fieldswell ; fenced. This is- the country for progressive efforts. This is the largest county in Iowa, and we have room for sixty thousand go-ahead, people, and they are coming too, ' The LuVerne News refers to the recent ball game in its town between its own and Algona's nine and says:.. "In justice to our home boys it.. .should be t said that they were not in shape to play ball, Spwe of them not having a, ball in^their hands for over two years. Algona has a strong team and will be playing good ball before the season is over, A return game will be played at Algona one week'from Saturday, when it is 'to be hoped that our boys will put up a better ga,me."- This is the right spirit, and there js no occasion for 'crowing, except for practice, anyway, over the first- game. The boys must keep their muscle up and be ready for tho'best game. Ed. Yem'ens was driving the Winkel ice delivery east of the Northwestern track's on McGregor street, Monday, when the team took fright at a box car, and beginning to run, one or the wheels struck an obstruction and the driver was thrown out. The team ran up McGregor street at- a lurjous pace until they reached .the Langdon corner, where they turned and ran south to and by the fair grounds., and never halted until they van down the hill and through the woods.

But it is not so with people in general with Whom the. spectacle of physical torment 'is unusual. : Last week in the Courier Postmaster Hiu- chon told of case lit Wesley in which a patient, a mere child, was affected with that terrible, disease, "periostium." Those of your readers who have never, had the "periostium" can have only a faint conception of the agony endured by those.who have it fastened on.them. Like the peritonimn, the pericardium, the pericarp and the peribtirlingame, this dread 'disease is not contagious. The worst that.can }>e said of it is that 'like tuberculosis and democracy it is mildly heriditary. It happens quite frequently. Tlie young-man starts out for a Jong . and enjoyable ride over the level country roads on his- trustee! "safety,", but comes home on foot, slowly and.labdri- ously wheeling his vehicle. Or he invokes the tender mercy of a passing countryman and.rides in on top -of a load of hogs. Or he reaches home on a train family by. emerg- IngTfrp'm .the \b,us. , Or ...he -disappears for.some clay's from his accustomed hau'rits 1 , and'his'-frieuds anxiously inquire whether-there is any reason for despondency, onlyto experience, a glad (let us say.) surprise at his reappearance without explanation. It is the old story of abused confidence. The "bike" breaks-down twenty miles from home, or a storm comes up, or a previously, soaked stretch of road is encountered. : ,'It'is riot the question' of walking,' disheartening as that might strike theTider, but : of walking and carrying the'^ike," that casts a shadow over,the b.r'ight prospect. A Sure Boom for the Declaration of Independence and the American . Eagle—Algona is Alive. There was a meeting Friday night in the interest of an independence day celebration. Mayor Haggard presided, and being instructed to appoint a committee to raise funds, he named C. B. MafROii, Capt. Dodge and I. Mi Fin- iiL-11. The meeting adjourned to com vene at the call of the above committee. Another meeting is now called for Thursday night, in the same hall, and everybody interested in seeing Algona get up a creditable celebration should be out. James Taylor, 0. B. Durdall and D. B. Avey have been added to the committee, and they report that the celebration is ;i sure thing. It must be made a big affair. PERSONAL MENTION . Chester Call arrived home from Louisiana the last of the week. His mother and lloscoe and Mrs. Dr. Shore are still there. G. 'W. Kddy was a visitor in Algona yesterday morning. Mrs. A. L. Peterson and child are on a month's visit under the parental roof at Livermore. II. A.

Matson left, yesterday on their Missouri land trip.- They intend purchasing a large tract of land. Mr. and Mrs., 'Henry Kennedy, uf Dubuque, are here visiting their son, llev.

He deiii- onstrated that fact at his concert. He has the most' marvelous technique, the most da.inty tone, coUpled wi^h the ability to' bring out every resource of his. instrument. He is the poet of the violin; h'o't'wholly the poet of sentiment, but the poet' of fire arid' force. Nothing could be 'more delicious than his performance of the canzonetta in Godard's concerto, nor could - any violin playing be more impressive than the Schubert "Serenade," which he gave as the first encore number. It was in this piece' that he showed his ability as a master of tonal resource. The violin in the harmonic p'arts, filled the large hall with its sounds, It became in the hands of Eemenyi a thing full of life and power. The beauty of Re- rnenyi's style is that it is so warm and appeals sq directly to the musical sense. It may be original, sometimes superficial, but it is always effective.
