He was legotwting the sale of liis fine farm ienr Biirt, preparatory to a trip to tlie Id home in England which is taken for he benefit of Mrs. Norton's health, vlr.

Dingmati and Bill Adams met at the foot of the hill beyond the north one day hist week for a neigbor- y chut and while so engaged Adams iccidentaily discharged his gun into one of Dingman's horses. It was sup- >osed at the time that Mr. Dingman Vould have no further use for the lorsc, but it seoins to have survived he dose. F. L. McComb has made a trade of lis 240 acre farm in Clay county to El iVright of this place, securing tlie l;it- er's residence property in Algona, formerly the Moffatt place, and a smaller 'ann near Wesley. Mr. McComb will occupy his newly acquired residence. It is to be hoped that this will not take Mr. Wright away. lie is too good a iti/.en to be spared. Will Purvis has been putting in some of his vacation decorating the leilingpf Geo. Galbraith's conservatory with cupids frollicking in the jlue sky. A couple of the faces, at east, are painted from life. The work s well done, if an editor knows a good piece of art when he sees it, and creditable to the artist. Mr. Purvis retuvns to hicago to begin his third year at the Art Institute. Andrew Hanson, Mr. Parish's man, was down at Slater, near Des Moines, for a couple of weeks, putting in a furnace and doing a big job of plumbing for J. S. Kennison, who is finishing up one of the most elegant and costly country mansions in the state. Mr. Parish went down there on Monday to see that everything was right and close the the business. Mr. Kennison is the father of Mrs. A. L. Frise. Mr. Hanson came home Friday. W. A. Ladendorf last week sold his restuanint business to A. Ilulburt, of Clear Lake, who took immediate charge and began the work of repainting and brightening up the premises and putting in new shelving. The transfer created considerable surprise, as it was known that Mr. Ladendorf was doing a very profitable business, but he says the work was too confining and he had to seek a change. He has not given evidence of any intention to leave Algona, and it is to be hoped that he will continue with us. The West Bend Journal is laboring undes a misapprehension when it says: "We give it up, Kossuth county editors can have the cake, pan and gasoline stove'for their grain stories. Only hundred and sixty-eight bushels of oats to the acre is beyond our limit. Our conscience is elaotic in cases of this kind but this last report is like Kossuth county, it is too big." The Kossuth county papers have not claimed a yield of 168 bushels of oats to the acre. It was 160. We do not want any mistake about this. A..N. Stacy, of Dubuque, has been spending the week with his father and brother east of town. He is one of the managers of the B. F. llichardson & Co. shoe factory, which is the largest in the state, employing 150 to200 workmen. This factory was established in 1854, and the back of the firm's card shows a facsimile of a bill of goods bought of J. B. Grant, of Galena, June 14,1861, a date when U. S. was still in his father's store. The firm's ledger of '59 and thereabouts shows accounts with U. S. and Orville Grant, and these were settled by the father, J. B. Grant. Saturday was the first anniversary of the cyclone which swept across northern Iowa one year ago on September 21st and made the day memorable by its wholesale destruction of life and property. There were many who remembered the scenes of the day with sorrow, and the weather itself was a reminder of them. It was much the same kind of a day as that which clos- ek with the cyclone, and as night came it looked as though the clouds might be harboring another twister. The wind was strong for a time, but finally a heavy, steady rain set in and continued during most of the night. Mr, and Mrs. G. D. Bowe last week received word of the death of their daughter, Mrs, Lula Sheu-ett, at Delta, Colorado, and with Charley and George, they went to Dysait on Saturday to attend the funeral, the remains being conveyed to that point, where the xamily had resided for many years, The funeral was on Monday, the religions services being conducted by Bev, Calien at Dysait, The burial was at Hudson, Jowa. the home of the hus-- band, Mrs. Sher.ett was only 20 years of age and had been mauled two years, whieh time she spent with her husband in Colorado in the hope of recovering her failing health, due to lung trouble, The news of her death was a serious blow tp her family here, who did not anticipate the sad result at this time* Oariu'U.

Call get a new Cooper Wagon* Wilfrid P. Jottes : iSf The Wigwam, Algona, Iowa.. A Good Investment! Is what we are all looking after, and with one of the largest crops ever known, this question comes to ever farmer:; What shall I do with all this grain, sell oats at 13c per bushel or build a granery? And which will pay me the best? Oats can't be raised at I8c per bushel, and when a^ thing is sold below cost of production it is reasonable to ^expect higher prices. Or in other words oats ought to bring;-' 20c to 2oc before spring, but if they are ondy 20c, you> make 7c per bushel by holding them. Now, about $50;' worth of lumber will build a granary that will hold 1200; bushels, and 7c profit on 1200 bushels is $84, or $34 profit', and the granary. Double the capacity of the granary at' a cost of about $90 and the profit on $2,400 bushel is $168 T \. or $78 and the granary. Conclusion: Build a granajry^ < make yourself some money and buy your lumber of • ; •<?',& fjf .f) ft m F. S: Nort6ri« Mrs. A. H. Purant, in Algona, last Saturday afternoon. The day had threatened rain, which came with considerable wind and a threatening sky about nightfall, and this likely lessened the number who would have been present, but about forty guests enjoyed the occasion. Mrs. L. F. Robinson and Mr. Pancoast, of Pes Moines, and Will Worster and Mr. Fuller, of West Bend, were the guests i'rom u distance. A number of appropriate gifts, including a gold headed cane and a pair of gold rimmed spectacles, were received by the venerable couple, and the gath- ing was a pleasant one. Abel Worster was born in Swanzey, N. H., 1819, and Harriett Beals was born at Chesterfield, in the same neighborhood, in 1825. On Sept. 22, 1845, they were ; married. For gixteen years they lived on the farm Where Mr. Worster was born, and then came to Iowa and settled in Jones county in 1861. Four years later they, moved to Kossuth and settled on the farm in Cresco township where they have lived for thirty years. They have six children, two girls and four boys. Gottlieb Schnerle is a young German who is wanted in Algona, not for any offense he has committed, but because he has fallen heir to three or four thousand marks in the Fatherland, and Mr. Chrischilles has the money in the bank here in Algona awaiting his draft. Schnerle was in the county last spring, working as a farm hand and frequently shifting from place to place. He worked near Fairville, then at Wesley, then at Burt, then at Germania, at which latter place he was last heard of. It may be that by this time he has drifted out of the county into Minnesota or elsewhere. He was aware of the fact that money was coming to him, and that it would come through Mr, Cbrischilles, the agent of his father's estate, and so he will probably drift back to Algona, If he is still in the county he will hear of his good fortune through the REPUBLICAN, which goes in force into every neighborhood of Kossuth, and will come to Algona and get his money, and not let it be sent back to Germany. The State Register has an Algona special which puts the amount of the young man's portion at $10,000, which is about ten times the actual sum* However, if young Schnerle will come and get his money and put it into Kos- sutb county land and work the land a? many a young German has done, the $10,000 will materialize in due time.
