The Algona ladies are cordially, invited to call and inspect the many new and. beautiful articles in Aft Needlework at the Teh nan fc House ftovi 14, 15 and 16, shown by Mrs. A. Jackson, of Chicago. There has been great activity at the formal building this Week, attendant upon the opening of the new term. Especial attention has been given to the heating arrangements* which are such that everybody Will be comfortable, no matter whether the weather is cold or not. Mr. and Mrs. T. P. Kelley and Mike Biemler were in town yesterday closing a deal by which Mrs. Kelley becomes the owner of the latter^s furniture business, which has been conducted in the Furstenberg building at Ban croft. Mrs. Kelley will run the business through Jas. Kelley as manager. The county board of supervisors convened Monday morning and put in that day and Tuesday forenoon can- vassinc the election returns. Yesterday afternoon the members drove down to the new St. Joe iron bridge to inspect'.that work. They met again this morning at nine o'clock. . Everybody was too busy election day to notice what was going on, but A, A. Grose was Up from Hanna and obtained .a marriage license for his own use. The girl's. name mentioned in the document was Miss Lovina Birkhofer, the daughter of one of the prominent citizens of Hanna. The marriage took place last week; John Goeders has an' ad this week that will challenge widespread interest.' The question, of clothes may not be of the first moment to everybody all the: year'v .-but anytime after three inches of snow it pushes itself into prominence alongside of the Monroe doctrine and the outflow of 'gold and American duchesses. J ..... No one need be without' flowers in the winter if they will take advantage of the very liberal offer this week made by W.. W. ; Barnard & Co. (Successors to Hiram Sibley & Co.) Seed- men, Chicago, Thehouse is well established and may be relied .upon to carry out the promises made -in their advertisement. Tickets for Walker Whiteside will be placed on -sale at Dingley's .drug store tomoraow morning. ,The prices will be $1.25 for the dress circle, $1.00 for parquet and the first three rows of the balcony, 75' cents for the balance of the balcony and 50 cents for the gallery. To .hear. Whiteside in any of the great cities of the country would cost two or three times these prices. | When the city- concludes' id do' a thing'it is to' be f expected that somebody will think'that it might better do eomething else. If the city should make it a rule to not do anything until everybody was agreed that it was the right thing it never would do anything. We do not know everything yet, but in our humble opinion the town is doing some of the things it ought to do. One of the questions which the board will have up this session will be that of putting a furnace in the basement. It takes six to eight stoves to heat the offices and when court is running it requires four more. These are run at a great expense, while at the same time the unnecessary dirt and work they make and the irregular heat they supply make them a very unsatisfactory substitute for rational heating, There is an expectation in railroad circles that a slight change will be made next Sunday in the time schedule of the Northwestern, as regards the morning train north and the evening train south. The former, it is said, will be earlier and the latter a little later, It is not anticipated that any other change in the schedule will be made. Auditor Calkins was sent to bed by the election returns or something else that came along at tbe same time, and has not got up town for business since. It is hoped his pleasant face will be seen at the court house soon, In the meantime Deputy Martin Weaver has full charge of the auditor's office and is acting very efficiently as the clerk of the board. The work of finishing up the Call double front in tbe Boston' Blpck is nearing completion, The heating of botb'stories is to be done 'by two fur» naees, ' There is ,to be a big cistern in tbe basement and tbe water is to be elevated to the' second story, where there will b'e closets, There will be flrst class sewerage arrangements. The •two etoye are to be separated by inovablp.partitions which are put in in -,.Tbe upper/., floors are given • ml Monday night f or-'the discussion pf its wiptep program.
