A reception to Itev. and Mrs. Sinclair is being arranged for, to come off 1ft the Congregational chnrch parlors Oft Friday evening of this week. The affair is in charge of Mrs. H. C. .McCoy, Mrs. H. Putsch, Mrs. B. F. Beed, and Miss Kate Smith, the latter hav- tig the musical program in hand. It ig understood that there will be a brief literary program, and that refreshments will be provided. The youbg bgople are given an especially urgent and cordialinvitation, and it is expected that they will be present in force. Arrangements have been made for union Sunday evening meetings once each month during the winter season, at which the pastors of the several churches will preach in turn. The first of these meetings will be held in the M. E. church next Sunday evening, ttev. C. E. Sinclair, of the Congregational church will preach. If the aud- itoriuma can accommodate the congregations the arrangement will be a good one, and a pleasing evidence of the spirit of fraternity existing between the Algona churches and pastors at the present time. Alvin Hodgson, of Burt, was a caller at the llisi'UuuOAN office Monday. Mr. H. tells of a recent sale of hogs which was not made at a figure below the cost of production.

The Sterzbach-Cady orchestra, which furnished the music, received many compliments, as also did Henry Thompson and'Corry Bidgeway who were the promoters of the affair.

And as for 14 cent corn, there ought not to be<any left. There was a large attendance of the members of Company F Wednesday night, the business on hand being the election of a first lieutenant to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of C. T. Chubb. .There was but one candidate in the field, G. F. Foster, and he was chosen to the position with a hearty unanimity. The new ot- Qcer is a member of the firm of Doxsee & Foster and is a graduate of the Iowa Agricultural College, having taken his degree in 1892. While at that institution he was four years under Col. Lincoln in the study of military tactics and attained'the rank of captain. -The company has made an excellent choice. •By an accidental discharge of a revolver in the hands of a neighbor friend last Thursday, 0. Mansmith", of Cresco township, had a ball shot into one of his lungs. Doctors Morse and Kenefick were called and paid the injured man sever'al visits. They report that no lerious.'result is likely to follow. M an ; 'smreiFls'twenty-three years,old ana lives with his mother, the widow of Levi Mansmith. It is said that this is A home dramatic entertainment i is understood to be one of the coming events. Algona used to get up very popular plays at a time when a 'aew stage had to bp fixed up for every such occasion, and those who participated were the local heroes 1'or six months. Afterwards a stage was built in sections for the court house, a great deal of scenery was manufactured, and a painted drop curtain, which nobody who ever saw will forget to his dying day, completed the outfit. Some of the local plays had a run of two or three nights, or until the players and the public succumbed to mutual exhaustion. We do not anticipate that the glory of the old days will be brought back, but it would be worth a year under Cleveland to see those plays again with Bir^e, Butterfield, Setchell and Comstock playing the leading roles and with new Algona taken back tor a night or two to the old scenes and surroundings of those always grand dramatic entertainments. We do not know what talent We may now bave, and probably those who uiv i vi »••-*» ir •" — — — , possess it may not know. Let us have a good old home show in the new opera house, and if it is riot patronized and enjoyed by everybody who can raise the admission fee it will ,not be like what we us'ed to have. PERSONAL MENTION, Geo. C. Call ar-ived home Thursday from Sioux City, where he went to be* present at the opening of the new, bridge across the Missouri at that me" tropolis, and to attend the grand bam quet which was one of the enjoyable, features of the celebration. At the latter his brother A. F. Call delivered the address of welcome. The bridge itself * is one worthy of the elaborate celebration attendant upon its opening. It is- 6,609 feet in length, including its- approaches, and the highest point of the* superstructure from the bottom ofl the t piers is 200 feet. It is the greatest bridge across the Missouri. It takes ! forty of the largest built locomotives to. coyer it, and the structure would' sus^ tain their weight without taxing its*-' full capacity. - \ , A. D. Clarke returned yesterday' af- ' ternoon from Missouri, where he had 1 been since the inauguration. He visit- „' ed St. Louis, Springfield, Lebanon and other points, and met a number of for-v mer citizens of Kossuth. He spentone < 100 thirty-five cent bottles of Bell City Silver F lish at 19 cents, at Ding- gley & Plight. , CITY BUSINESS MATTERS. L*J\SA.

There was the usual crowded house at the Social Union on Friday night, and it,was amply justified by the fine program, the literary features of which were' instructive and interesting papers on 1 John Milton by Mrs. F. D. Calkins and on President James Monroe by C. A.'Cohenour. George St. John recited ."Licking the Teacher" in a manner to win great applause, and the boy quartette, made up of Sidney Smith, Carl Setchell, Walter Telher and Walter Stebbins sang so well as to get an enthusiastic encore, Other mu- sicaMeatures were a song byMissKate Lantry and a piano solo by Miss Helen Starr, Miss Cornie Ingbam's terra as program committee having expired, President McCoy appointed 0.
