He was also looking up his chance for re-election this fall. Ho has always made a number one superintendent and we believe it would be a good thing for our county schools to keep him there. Spencer News: Mr. F. A. Matthews of Algona, arrived in Spencer M9nday, and is busily engaged in arranging to open : his drug store in the J. E. Francis building. He expects to have everything in readiness for opening by November. Mr. Matthews is a pharmacist of extended experience, and our people will find him an agreeable gentleman.

They will take up their residence at once in Des Moioes, where Mr. Smith is in business, The Webster City Freeman says that the Northwestern cpntemplates adding another train, running from Algona to Des Moines, going south in the morning and returning at night. The additional train service has not been decided upon as yet but it is deemed likely that the experiment will be made, and if it <is found profitable or nearly self-sustaining, this train will be a permanent thing.

Halloween comes to-morrow night, and no doubt it will be observed. It is to be hoped that there will be no malicious destruction of property such as has marked the recurrence of this date. If boys cannot find fun in anything short of doing injury to their neighbors the fact should be a pointer to them that there is something wrong, as it shows the disposition of a tough. There is no reason why tbe city authorities should look on and see property destroyed on that night any more than on any other night of the year. An innovation in the observance of Halloween has been made in some localities, where bands of young people made visits in ghostly habiliments and performed deeds of charity and good will. They found more fun iu this line of celebration than iu the barbarous custom which is more common. A Starr family reunion took place at tbe home of David Starr, of Bmmets- burg, Monday, which was attended by thirty-seven children, grand children and great grand-children of Jesse Starr, with family connections. There were present from a distance Wm. M. Starr, of Maxwell, Iowa, Mrs. Betsy Paxtou, of Port Perry, Ontario, Mr. and Mrs. Alson Danks, o_f Monti- vya, -Mx- SUNBEAMS. The Sanborn Sun -democratic—heads its local column "Sunbeams," and the first item under that heading iu its last issue, read: "Oats are down DO lOc. Wheat Is back up to45c." Sunbeam, eh?

Jesse Starr was born in Pennsylvania, of Quaker parents. The family, of which he wns the youngest of. twelve children, removed to Upper Canada and made a clearing near Whitby, Ontario, when he was but a year old. He raised a family of twelve children, nine of whom are now living. He moved to Wisconsin in 1852 and to Iowa ten years later. He first settled in Jones county but died in Palo Alto sine years ago at the age of eighty- three. Wilfrid Jones and Melzar Haggard are on record as being among the first in Algona to realize the benefits of the telephone system. Wilfrid was called to his telephone a few days ago to talk with a Bancroft business man (as he supposed) who wanted a mould-board for a plow sent up on the freight for a customer of his. The mould-board had to be detached from a plow, which was hurriedly done and it was sent to the depot barely in time for the train. A short time afterward Wilfrid had business at Haggard & Peek's land office, and during the conversation his mould- board was brought from their back office and carefully deposited in front of his chair. Wilfrid managed to join in the general laugh at his expense, and will be careful in the future to know who be is talking to before filling an order for machinery. The switchboard in the central office had not yet been putMn and the boys had made connections with the Wigwam wire by using broom wire in the alley behind the telephone office. The order for the mould-board was given within two blocks of Wilfrid's office, while he sup- S jsedhe was talking to someone in ancroft. Melzar Haggard had been victimized in the same manner the day Before. He thought he had made a big land sale to a customer J, B, Cork bad at Burt, when in reality he was talking to. a few practical jokers over at the court house.
