Christmas comes two weeks from today. Court opened on Monday with a full docket. Prof .Gilchrist will occupy the M. E. pulpit next Sunday morning. We are having a period of open weather, and mud has taken the place of snow. Mike Winkel has been temporarily in charge of the interests of the Northwestern at Ledyard. Mrs. A. L. Peterson went to Liver 1 more on Saturday to visit her mother, who is quite sick. Patterson & Son are now fairly settled down in their new quarters, next to the Boston Block. G. W. Southwell, pastor of the M. E. 'church, goes to Burt to hold quarterly meeting next Sunday, Prof. Carroll, the new superintendent, was in town the first of the week and visited the schools. • " "BlealrHouse" will draw a great crowd to the Call Dec. 20.' Jane Coombs is a great actress. Some of the finest furniture that has ever been put upon the Algona market is to be seen at McGregor's. Prof. Gilchrist has a memorial sketch of Prof. Dixson in the current number of the Iowa Educational Monthly. An eleven-pound boy was born to 'Mr. and Mrs. J. K. Laird Sunday. This explains Mr. Laird's hilarious mood. ' The ladies of the A. S. A. will hold their regular meeting at the reading room, Friday, Dec. 13, at 3 o'clock sharp- L. W. Moore, who works in the Spur, beck & Lambert cooper works, had his arm broken on Sunday while exercising a horse. The great actress, Jane Coombs, will ' appear in "Bleak House" at the Call, Dec. 20. one week from Friday night. This will be a great dramatic event. It was expected that Alex Peddie, of • -Emmetsburg, would conduct the service at the Episcopal church last Sun-, but he was unable to be puesent. :, Charley Bowe, one of the BTTUBLI-' CAN'S boys, has been quite sick, but we are very glad to know that he is ' recovering, Charley is considered indispensable at this office. It is re assuring to note that as smart . a man is Phil. Armom- is buying corn direct from the producers in prefer' ( ence to indulging in precarious specu- t . lations on the board of trade, '•' Cashier W, K. Ferguson takes a right <> view oj! life, as is evidenced by the to' boggan slide he^has put up for the boys on MS residence grounds. It is not too v dizizy and dangerous, but the smalt poy ' gets great t up out of it, , ; 1 .. jjp. and Mrs, J< p« Jones we doing :i' J t.iie Atlanta Exposition, andithey'wpte home thflt the weather $w;e to oojd^ ; ' and disagreeable, .They ,expept -to.g9, father soytb, where,they,.wU flnd^ ',mors^gree^bleo]imate, ' • , ,',, . •\ ,Geo, Pill's office jurnijmre is now %, • " 1, and a fln0P office ,eqwDm.e,n£ 18, be'seenhereabputs, ftW m«<& " everybody,-but if •"" """" rattaey . tban George bought it,- a supper and will make Santa a side issue, and'the Baptist program is still in the hands of the committee. Treasurer Spencer suggests a piece of legislation which is very likely to occupy the public mind not a little during the approaching session of the legislature. It is in brief a proposition to give the county the benefit of delinquent tax sales. These sales have been a great speculation to private investors. Cashier Wm. K.. Ferguson, .of the First ,National Bank, yesterday became the owner of another fine farm, that of Dr. Jas. Barr, north of town. This is a 280-acre farm and one of the most desirable in this locality. It was secured by Mr. Ferguson on a cash deal and the figure quoted is $32 per acre. It was a bargain at that. Letters are advertised for Frank Beall, 0. F. Gallons, Mary GafEney, Kev. Jas. Kelley, Urban Lyncb, Geo. Millere, J. W. Newville, Mrs. Elmer Nelson, Miss Segrid Oleson, Wm. Biddler, Messrs. Sheeran & Sons, Dr. F. W. Shaw, Geo. Schmitz, Frederick Schwiederawsky, Albert Wheeler, and David E. Wing. The ladies served suppers to a large number at the reading room Friday night, and next day they served numerous dinners. The financial result of their labors was in the neighborhood of $40; and along with the business speculation there was a very pleasant social time. The money goes to the purchase of new books. Dr. Kenefick received word Friday of the death of his father at his home in Belmond, and went down to,attend the funeral which was held Sunday. Mr. Kenefick was 78 years old and has lived in Iowa many years. lie has made several visits to Algona and made lasting friends of all with whom he came in contact. His death leaves the doctor without parents. We are obliged, this week, to bespeak the indulgence of our county correspondents, whose letters are unavoidably and unexpectedly omitted. The rush of-holiday advertising came at an hour too late to allow an enlargement of the paper, The' BEPUBLICAH does not intend to slight the contributions of its splendid corps of news gatherers, but the situation this week is unusual. Dr. Stetson, of Des Moines, filled the Baptist pulpit Sunday last, Dr. Stetson is oae of the ablest pulpit orators in the state and his sermons were greatly appreciated, Rev. Stevens, the pastor, was absent, and it is under* stood that he filled a Minnesota pulpit on Sunday, with a view to a change ,of location, Mv. Stevens is a young man of great ability and promise, and many will regret his, departure, should he de" cide to go elsewhere, The librarian's report shows that about 500 bopks were taken out of the public library during the month of November, The promoters of the enterprise very naturally accept'this as meaning fba^the library is apprectet- ft?.This ia additional fo Me. reading of p'orftdicalsv whiQU ia enjoyed by 4arg1> nuj&bei's, ty Yiew of these re- suits many-who looked iroqn'tyie, pro JKJ witli <Mt* P*. its nt My 'aye-ex, ressing t&emsejve.s as f filly epnvipQear ,Cal,< Barrack, }s goon to wll'pfl hte "Hello There "Am I connected with Walker Bros?
