CUBANS The Cuban revolutionists ate not? NORMAL SCHOOLS. It has been a long time since a con vention of teachers has been held which did not vigorously declare the need of additional normal schools.. The state teachers convention at Des Mo'ineslast clearly in the ascendancy, and the hour of their complete triumph is near. They have won possession of the island with the exception of the stronghold of Havana, and that city is now surrounded and besieged. John W. Akers, for six years state' Stip- eflnteTident of totva, has been elected pflft- cipal of the Walter Scott school, Chicago. The Register well says that a man of Mr. Akers' capacity should have been retained toy *tew and Texas Vauhg in Iowa. Utah is how a state of the Union, President Cleveland having signed the proc- week made a strong utterance on this subject. The report of the committee on state legislation of which President Seerly of the Cedar Falls normal school jfras the chairman, gave first place to the subject of state training schools for teachers and said: There was absolute unanimity in the opinion that the great need for trained teachers demanded that the state should establish other normal schools, similiar to the present one, and that the twenty-sixth general assembly should be urged to make provision for the early opening of at least one more such school. There was almost unanimity in the opinion there should also be additional provision made at once for a grade of training schools for elementary teachers alone, the course of study for which shall be specially planned to reach the necessities of the 16,000 inexperienced and poorly qualified young persons, who will find their way into rural and village schools of the state whithin the next two _ years. These schools should be organized so as to unite local and state interests, and should include a system of support by a plan of payment on results. State Superintendent : Sabin took radical ground on this question in his address, and among other things said: All this discussion and research mark the dawn of a new era, the coming of a mighty revival, an educational penti- cost. . ' . In Iowa the semi-centennial year of our statehood has already dawned. There are over 2,000,000 people within our borders. We have nearly 18,000 school rooms. We expended nearly 88,317,875 last year upon our public schools. Are we obtaining adequate Of the 18,000 teachers, it is probably a low estimate to say that 15,000 have received no special fitting for their calling aside from the normal institute. ' . There should be additional schools, Not one step has been taken by this state during the last twenty years towards meeting this great want—not ' one single step. During these twenty years Iowa has granted about $60,000 for new buildings for the Cedar Falls school, while Bhode Island, that can be placed almost within the borders of one of our Iowa counties has just completed a new building at a cost of $300,000, and to make the contrast more marked Bhode Island sent' to Iowa and takes one of our brightest young lamatlon of her statehood on Saturday last. The news was greeted at Salt Lake City by the firing of cannon —iiot George Q.—and a formal celebration was held in that city Monday. The admission of Utah means two more United States sen' ators, both of whom will be republicans. It is expected that Oeo. Q. Cannon, of the mormon church, and Isaac H. Trumble, a gentile according to the nomenclature of that region in spite of his Jewish name, will be the first senators, and their admission, which Is expected the latter part of this month, will give the republicans a majority of five over the democrats in that body. Utah Is the forty-fifth state. The cession is getting to be a long one. pr - Capt. L. B. Raymond, editor of the Franklin County Recorder, has been giy,- on a position as member of the Soldiers Home Commission. The appointment is one of the best that Gov, Jackson has made. ________ Iff Tfifi LOCAL FIELD. A very important.meeting for Algona people wWl be that at the Grand Army Hall, Friday night, the annual meeting of the Library Association. The library eu^ terprise is at present about the most pop ular institution in our midst. It was for a time doubted and questioned whether suchfau Institution as a.public IFbfary was heeded in a town like Algona, but nobody doubts now, because the record of books prawn out froto month to month and the large attendance nightly at the reading room has disyosed of that. .Tjio institution is now in ' just, the position when it can be helped and given momentum by the manifestation of interest on the part of the citizens of Algona in general. That ought not to be lacking. feoth Wfciohs ate i?ie_sing to Algona People—The Week's Society fcfotes, —Chatity feall Mohday Might. , JLLl _CJU»o, JL WJU.V »i»*w «•» **+-•*• ~r— -^ — — ---,,.,£ bthfct Mississippi rivet points last weefc ott:ftt)HSifie%8 trip.

The Boers repulsed the invaders in a battle lasting from three In the afternoon until eleven at night, capturing 500 prisoners and killing 30 or more. Dr. Jamison and other leaders of the expedition are in jail. The British ministry disavows responsibility for the expedition, but their protestations are not convincing, and a decided coldness between Germany and England is reported as one of the results of the outbreak. The fact should be borne in mind by all the farmers of the county that the annual meeting of the agricultural society come) Saturday of this week, at the court house in Algona, at one o'clock, This is a very Important meeting, and there Ought to''be more than the corporal's guard which, is frequently left to do the business. The officers are to be elected for the new year, the reports are to be presented and acted ou, and the general policy of the society with reference to the fall exhibition discussed. feAKEfteL- Just too late for insertion in Year's issue of the EEpufitiCAN catne this record of a wedding of interest t6 all Algona people, appearing in the columns of the Manchester, ft, H», Union, of December 26: The wedding of Dr. Harris Sr Bake* tel, of Deity, and Miss Zada Call, daughter of the late Judge Asa C- Call of Algona, la,, took place, at 6$o o'clock last evening at the residence of her sister, Mrs, Frederick Perkins, Corner of Chestnut and Clarke streets, The afiair was private, only relatives being present.

What the Venezuelan boundary commission is expected to do is clearly and definitely set forth in the instructions of the president embodied in the several commissions: You are hereby appointed a member of the commission to Investigate and report upon the true location of the division lino between the territory of the republic of Venezuela and that of British Guiana. It is expected that the commission will avail itself of all possible sources of information, will apply to the matter all per- tineut rules of municipal and international law, and will make a report to the President of their conclusions, together with the evidence and documents submitted to and considered by them, with as lit- atiblewith the 'thor- men to be principal of her great ^Superintendent Sabiu spoke".'with great concern of the importance ot united effort for additional schools for teacher training. The teachers must be a unit in asking and a unit in .what they ask. This association is the body whence must come this petition. Botti the outgoing and incoming governors are with the teachers in desiring tuese improvements in the cause of educa- I would that this great state, carved out of the fairest portion of the Louisiana purchase, rich in her resources, with no stain upon her escutcheon, might arouse herself, shake ott her lethargy and like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, rejoicing like a strong man to run a race, beauteous as the outgoings of the morning, puissant as the sun in Ms glory, might assume her right place among these great empires of the northwest, as a leader in the cause of popular education. From these expressions it will be seen that a great change of opinion has taken place in the most influential quarters in regard to the normal school question. When Algona made her strong fight for a new normal the Cedar Falls influence opposed it, and the state superintendent even could not be induced to take any pronounced stand for new normals. Enlightened public sentiment even then was friendly, but not by any means so overwhelmingly so as now. Apparently, the time has come when, if our legislators do not deliberately set themselves against the clear demands of the educational exponents of our state, some well considered bill for new normal schools will be adopted, We do not believe that anything else can be so easily carried through the legislature as a bill for three or four new schools, nor do we believe that justice can be done to sections nor adequate facilities afforded to teachers by • any less comprehensive plan. tie delay as is compatible with the .thorough and impartial consideration of the subject to bo dealt with, The hearts of the friends and enforcers of the prohibitory law in Washington county have been encouraged by the action of the'officials of the Burlington,Cedar Rapids & Northern railway company in deciding to refuse transportation to liquors intended for sale contrary to law. The decision was reached only after action against the company was begun by the county attorney, but it is none the less cheering. All agents and employes of the road have been warned to observe the new rule. The legislature meets in Des Moino? on Monday next. There is. important work to be done by the coming assembly and the Solans should do that work deliberately. The most serious complaint made by the people against their supposed-to-be servants at the capital is that they waste time at the beginning of the session doing nothing, and worse than waste it at the close toy rushing through ,111 considered bill. It would be well If some action could be taken at this meeting to provide for a farmers' institute or some like meeting at some date this winter. Such conventions have usually been- arranged for at the Society's annual meeting.' It is the natural time to initiate such enterprises, as it is the only stated county gathering of farmers during the winter, and the farm-, ers themselves should take such matters in hand if they wish anything done. It- was not long ago that the farmers' institute was a regular annual event of great interest, and there has hardly ever been an attempt in this line that was not altogether successful. There is as rnuch.reas- on at present as there ever was for a farm-, ers' .conference for mutual benefit. Our dairy'interest is about as important as -is that of any other county in the state, 'and it is growing every year more important: With the' present depressed condition of prices^in every other'line of farm production, there-is a special reason why the, utmost must be made of this resource. Aside from.this.'the methods andjmachineryrpf the dairy are Undergoing a steady fapd rapid evolution, and close attention and study will be necessary to enable eveu.the level headed fanner to follow the wise mean between conservatism and radicalism. There'is great good in counsel at such a time, and out of friendly counsel always comes the best results. The farmers' of Clay county wilMiayc an institute during the latter part of this, month, and it is announced that State Dairy Commissioner Boardman will be present. He couid probably be secured at Algoua without difficulty. There was a decided stand taken by the State Teachers' association at Dos Moines last week in favor of getting the county superintendent's office out of politics. Various plans were-urged to ac.omplish this result. Cue was to t make the term four years instead of two, and to have the incumbent chosen at«. special election, Senator Funk has 'been consulting with the mutual insurance men. in regard to changes proposed in the laws governing their business. This is a hint to building and loan men and others whose business would be injuriously affected by the adoption of the provisions of the new code. The New York Herald's tally of choices for president in the republican national committee gives Senator Allison a very fair show for a starter, and is'as follows: McKinley, 13; Reed, 11; Allison, 9j Morion, 3; Cameron, 4; Harrison, 3; Cullom, J; Davis, 2; Bradley, 1; Spooner, 1; Elkins,?.

HopkJnsoR BARTLETT-CLARKE. , i Th« marriage of Miss Gertrude Clarke, the charming and accomplished daughter of Geo. E. Clarke, to Mr. Fred Bartlett, ,of.Dallas, Texas, was solemnized at the Episcopal church last Thursday noon in the presence. of about 150 invited guests. The ceremony was performed by Bev. McDoj aid, of Omaha, who was the first Episcopal minister in Algona and who bap- tised the bride several years ago when she was taken into the church. The bride was dressed in cream: satin and attended by her sister, Miss Lulu, who wore white organdy over pale _ green silk. The bridesmaids were Misses Cornie Ingham, Louise McCoy, May me Farrell, of Mason City, and Gertie Williams, of Ipswich, S. D. They were dressed in white organdy. The groomsman was W. P. Jones, Melzar Haggard and Chas. Coheuour acting as ushers. The ceremony and music were simple and impressive., A wedding breakfast was served to the bridal party and intimate friends, after which •Mr. and Mrs. Bartlett were escorted to the Northwestern depot,-and.departed for the south 'amidst,a shower of."rice and good wishes., They were to stop over in Des Moines and Kansas City to call on relatives and expected to in Dallas Sunday morning. . •'-• The bride has passed her life in Algona, and has been a leader in social and literary circles. She is a graduate of Notre Dame. Mr. Bartlett lived in Algona several years and has many friends here, who congratulate him on his happy selection of so cultured and charming'a lady for a life companion. He is a graduate of Columbia Law School of New York, and has established a good paying law business at Dallas.
