Ttttf IOWA, ?'(-.- V A 1>"N > u, OPlNlOiV BtllLDS TflF, STOKE. Without; the gooA opinion of its pittfons no business house can .expect to sdceeed. The opinion prevails among 1 o'ur customers that xve always 16ad in the Important matters of low price and high value. From now untilJulylth We will -farther mtmld the f ublic opinion to the fact that at the NEW XOLAND you get thQ poods as advertised and values areas represented. ....... DUBT)AI J T J & CO. LOCAL MENTIONS, The telephone is not with us yet, but it Will soon be here. A good second-hand top buggy for sale cheap at the Wigwam. The banner of the free will float from a new flag-staff on the Court House. The Kossuth County Teachers' institute will open in Algona August 6th. The News promises a large delegation from LuVerne to take in our Fourth, The contract for furnishing the lumber, hauling and building stand, seats, etc., will be let by Geo. Platt, It wapts to be distinctly understood •that there is not going to be any fence around the Algona business men's celebration. Geo. Galbraith has taken a new start on his residence and is evolving new features which will add to its attractiveness. Our grocers have sold some homegrown new potatoes. Henry Michael is, we believe, the first to bring in, a bushel. . . \ .••'•'•• The Hamiltons expect an invoice Of bear cubs from the south, along with a heavy shipment of lumber. This is not an ad. Emmetsburg was well represented in the Christian Endeavor Convention last week. There were about twenty in attendance. The ladies' society of the Congregational church .will hold a meeting tnis afternoon for the transaction of important business. C. B. Matson has just had Photographer Peterstofinish up a lot .of Kodak views which he brpught home from Missouri. He has some fine pictures. Dr. Garfield is build 1 ing. such a magnificent barn that some persons have got the idea';the his 'newspaper neighbor was guilty of the extravagance of a new residence. ' ; ''..'•• , Now that we have a, steam laundry of large capacity directly, , across the street from the REPUBLICAN office,. there will .be no excuse hereafter for a stiff office towel. Dr. Savers had his : office .building moved down. from Call street to \State and located next to the Brown' livery- stable.

Green's Stock' -Company will play "Lady Audrey's Secret" at the Gall the night of the. third,, and ;';'Muldoon's Picnic" the night of the Fourth, The Company is very highly commended. Two hundred people went from AJ- gona to the Spirit -Lake' Masonic demonstration; yesterday, including : • the two bands, ; There was no- rain at the lake, and the day and the celebration were both fine. • Any paper which fee'ls itself compelled to indulge in ill-natured flings at some other to.wn as a last desperate . means of keeping its readers away from a Fourth of July celebration at that' town it entitled to deep 'pity. W. W. Hildebr'and, of 'LeMars. the popular representative of Fairbanks, Morse & Co.,' was in Algona yesterday. Mr. Hildebra'nd is always popular at the REPUBLICAN office on account of having supplied it with' the best gas engine on earth. > * • -The Emmetsburg Reporter has over' ruled the umpire of the ball game between tbe printers and lawyers of Algona and decided that tb,e latter wejse the winners. The 'Algona printers were the victors, and so are not candidates for sympathy. • •< Tbe King's Daughters will -serve ice cream,, cake and lemonade atZabJtenls ' The A. L. A. ladies meet at 3 o'clock, June 28, at the Reading room. The ladies of the Baptist church will serve dinner to their share of the crowd on the Fourth. The new laundry has been in operation for several days, and everything is running smoothly, it has a very complete equipment of up-to-date machinery from Nelson & Kreuter of Chicago, which has been installed by S. I, Ever* itt. This institution will be a credit and a great benefit to the town. Mrs* Lilly has closed the first term of her Kindergarten, and a very successful school it was. This institution has been something of an experiment here, but those Who have made themselves familiar With Mrs. Lilly's little school unite in pronouncing it a great success. The second term will open in September, and it is expected with a largely increased attendance. t Chas. J. Brown, the liveryman, is getting up a splendid band wagon for the Algona band, boys. It will be ready by the Fourth and will be drawn by four fine horses. It will be resplendent in gold and color, but will not be any finer' than the music it will carry. This is a great piece of enterprise on the part of Mr. Brown. He thought the boys should have .something to match those new suits. ^ f The Algona Business men's celebration will be, an all-day affair. It will , be, all that anybody, can see in one day. The only way to make a bigger pro- .gram Would be; to-; invoke the power which 'in a lo$g past v 'emerg'ency made the sun to st'an'd still, and that would .leave the other nations iri a bad fix. •The 'celebration will be first class ^11 (the way through add include all the popular Fourth of 'July' features, arid the best to be had'of everything. '.The Annual rating of Iowa postoffi- ces as regards salaried has been pub-: lished and it is cheering to note that. Algona has dqne enough postal bus- jhessltp entitle Postmaster Ilinchon to an increase Of salary from. Si, 700 to' $1,800. Other towns in. this neighbor-: hood whose salaries ".are raised are Britti from $1,300 to $1,400; Clear Lake, $1,400 to $1500; Estheryille $1,60,0 .to $1,700; Garner, $1200 to. $1300, .Shel'don,- $1,700 'to $1,800; Webster.CityV$l,'900 ,to' 2,100.

Clarke, and Frank Leslie Williams, of Erie, Pa., was salemnized at the residence of the bride's parents Wednesday afternoon at 3 o'clock.

Ledyard Leader: The Algona KB- PUBLiCAN utilizes a spring poet who rhymes away in about five stanza's asking the people to celebrate at Algona. Measured either by this poet or by the actual outlook we judge that Algona will have u rousing time. Carroll Herald: Victor B. Dolllver, brother of the congressman, will deliver the fourth of July oration at Algona. He is said to be as entertaining a talker as his brother. Buffalo Center Tribune: Victor B. Dolliver, brother of our distinguished congressman, is billed to deliver the oration at Algona on the 4th of July, while the Hon. J. P. will let loose his eloquence to the admiring throngs at LeMars on that day. The name of Dolliver is synonymous: of -an extra good speech, and those towns are for- tu»ate in their selections, "o •' — •:•.•••'•-:.<A. M. & G. M.

His.closing-sentences were euphonious in the extreme, and well calculated to charm the.populai; ear, and insure a favorable effect. Considering the lecture'as a whole, I should say it was a success from every standpoint than that of logic. His splendid presence attracted the eye, his silvery ydice enslared the ear, and his matchless 1 eloquence captivated one's whole being. More tha'nthis,the lecture was in every way a phillipic, abounding in keenest sarcasm and most withering and blasphemrfus wit, which shocked every sentiment of reverence and piety. But its effect was only sensuous. To 'the thoughtful, it carried no conviction. To the thoughtful, the arguments were superficial attd the reasoning was sophistry. The time has come when effervescent oratory and caustic sarcasm do not carry any weight. I will not say that the speaker is not sincere, but certain it is that this great arch-infidel receives handsomely for his"-services.' J.' P. RAWSON. Madison, Wis.,'May 16, 1895.

' CAN TELL A LIE. To THE EDITOR.—Fullers opera house was packed to its utmost capacity to contain the crowd which gathered to hear Robert Ingereoll's now famous—or infamous—lecture'on tlie Bible. People of all classes were there,— the savants who 'went, some to have their own ideas ably expressed, and some to be enabled to intelligently refute such heresies; the thoughtless pedant who went for appearance's sake; the hero-worshiper, who -thought only of the matchless eloquence, and cared nothing for the logic or sophistry, as the case might be; and the thoughtless rabble, who were suggestively numerous, and whose proudest .boast is to say, with an.arrogant affectation of wisdom: "I don't.believe there is a God." It is needless to say_that the Christian heard much to., refute,. the infidel much to. admire, and the. seeker after truth much at which to be perplexed. At 8 o'clock sharp, the curtain rose, and a few minutes after-Robt. Ingersoll, the lawyer, the lecturer, the orator, and, above all, the infidel, walked upon the stage. 'He' is. a, L well-built, well-perserved man, of about,, sixty or sixty-five years of age, w,jth silvery locks which would better become a venerable deacon or elder thaa'this agnostic. His costume was such as to satisfy the most fasiMlous 1 .'" After a few prelimiriary remarksj'iie began by liking reason to a flame, and then exclaiming: ''Let the.little^liariieburn." And then during the next two iiours, proceeded to demonstrate that his own little flame had long since been extinguished by the winds of prejudice and superficial investigation. Proceeding to inspiration, he declared: "Any clergyman will tell that Moses never ,wrote : the Pentateuch." This startling statetnent, of course, can be accepted as nothing less than an absolute falsehood.

Such sophistry is amazing iri this century of enlightenment. It would be as logical to say that'MacGauley was giinty, of the cruelty.and murders of Jeffreys because, he wrote a history of those deeds, or thi^t; Carjyle was a howling, murderous Jacobin ; because he wrote a history of the 1 French revolution^ "Eccle'sias- 1 es.,'', he affirmed,•' '|s the rn^st thoughtful bqok in the Bible, and was written by an infidiel; while the 109th Psalm is the most infamous book in the world." 'Onexamination, this Ps,alm which so offended the gentleman, will be found to be only petitionary in- character, and there is no evidence that its' terms were 1 ever granted. "Is there," he asked, as if challenging a reply, "a single word or line in the bible that has helped the intellect?" The bible,, that book which in.many of its features, has baffled the sear chin gs of tbe keenest intellects of the ages. He then compared Marcus Aurelius and Abra- ham'Lincoln with Jesus, and came to the conclusion that He' who came to seek' arid to save that which was lost, was positively 'devilish as compared with either the Roman, emperor and philosopher or, the American statesman, .Speaking of that passage where it is prophesied that the Jews, as a nation, will be scattered over 1 the earth, homeless, be declared that they were the mosf prosperous nation on tUe face of jjhe earth.
