W. 0. Hart is president of the Algona co-operative creamery for the year 1896, Myron Schenek is secretary and manager, and J. B. Hofius and C. D. Ward are elected directors. The creamery is prospering and as high as $1.24 has been realized from 100 pounds of milk.

For the benefit of this kindly interested community who by their generosity and presence made the Charity Ball of '96 a successful and pleasing entertainment, the Belief committee present the following report: Tickets sold to the amount of $148; expenses $33.55; net proceeds $114.35.

There was some surprise about town when the failureof water occurred, but probably nobody experienced any serious inconvenience* The machinery is working beautifully, again, Henry Warner, of Seneca, was in town Thursday last. He said the Seneca creamery was proving a great success. The old creamery burned January 26 and the new one was not ready for business until April 16, but the creamery took in last year 3,680,000 pounds of milk and turned out $30,000 worth of butter. The Seneca creamery always was a great success. Mr. O.Norton, 1355 Wabash Ave., Chicago, 111., in writing to Dr. T. W. Wood, of McGregor, Iowa, says the bottle of his Worm Destroyer given to his child has done it a Wonderful good. He wishes to know where he can get a new supply in Chicago. The Fuller & Fuller Co. and all the wholesale druggists of Chicago will supply all retail druggist. 16 - 17 Jas. Taylor does not subscribe to the notion that warm weather is a bad thing for business. He made sales ot cloaks last week to ladies as far away as St. Joe, Livermore and Swea, and he knows they could not have got here to trade with him in some weather that some folks think is ideal for business. But then Taylor is a great man to draw trade. The Chubb house in the north part of town,'which was rendered uninhabitable by Saturday's fire, will not be repaired. ' It has served its time and u the spring it will be moved away and a new and doubtless fine residence will rise in its place, which it is understood will be the Chubb home. The grounds are very beautiful and are idorned with large native trees.

Visitors at the court house yesterday noticed that the halls were nearly filled with big boxes, but not all were aware that the contents would cost the county a plump $750. The boxes were from the Office Specialty Manufacturing Company, of Syracuse, N. Y., and contained enough steel filing cases to cover the side of a house. They are to be placed in the vault of the clerk's office and are intended for the recep" tion and preservation of the court records, many of which, owing to the inadequacy of present accommodations, are heaped up on the flcor of the vault. This improvement is one which has been demanded by the needs of the clerk's ofiiee for 20 years. Mrs. Bert Masten, of Sexton, died Saturday of acute peritonitis. She was taken sick only the day previous, and the fatality was so unexpected and startling that some unusual occasion was.suspected, and Coroner Morse was called to investigate the cause of death. The doctor says the disease developed so acutely as to cause shock, and the usual attendant symptoms were absent. He says nothing that could have been done would have auailed to save her life. The deceased was only thirty-eight years of age and bad a family of seven children. Mr. and Mrs. Masten had but recently settled in the hotel business at Sexton. The death is one to cause deep regret Bev. Southwell visited Charles City last week and interviewed the evangelist Williams with a view to securing lim for revival meetings in Algona.

It was not the intention to allow any debt to be created, but now that tbe association has one it will at once proceed to get rid of it. Ways and means for the future were discussed, and committees appointed. Librarian McElroy submitted a very interesting report showing about 4,000 books taken out. There are now about 1,600 books in the library.
