The Algona Deposit & Loan Asso* elation has averaged a dividend of 15 9-10 per cent, on the business of 1895. State Bank Examiner Homer A.

Buffalo Center Tribune: Last Wed nesday night near Forest City occurred a shooting affair that nearly caused th death of James Ames, the far famed ball player of Forest City. Jim and a Mr. Hayden, from Albert Lea, (who by the way is a member of the farm of Gage, Ilayden & Co. who are selling a lot Of their shelf worn goods at Forest City now) went down to a dance m Ellington township and" on the way Hayden stopped to make a friendly call at the home of O. G. Nelson, who, by the way is a bad man in more ways than one. Jim waited for quite a while for Hay den to come out again, but aa he did not come Jim tied the team and Went to the door to call him. Nelson came to the door and told Jim to leave Having bought a large lot of Milk .Caiis, We now offer the Best 8-gal.

Spurbeck & Lambert are running their butter tub factory full blast these days and and anyone visiting there will be convinced that Algona has one ot the liveliest manufacturing institutions to be found anywhere in the state. Some of the Algona boys who went to the Whittemore masquerade are mentioned amongst the best masked people in attendance. Nick Ray as Uncle Sam and Bert Williams as Me- phisto looked and acted their parts to perfection. Anybody who wants to buy a landmark has a chance now. It is the house that Father Taylor lived in about all the time he lived in Algona. It was built in Irvington and moved to Algona forty years ago. It is still in a fair state pf preservation. ( , For the grand jury drawing County Clerk Grose has had a box made by E. N. Weaver, and Mr. Weaver says the material ,was from the first t black walnut log sawed in- tbe Irvington sawmill.

If the plan outlined by tbe board was adopted it would cost more in the end than it does novv and would not give as good satisfaction. In our estimation . supplements are a poor medium to advertise anything in. A special from some east Iowa town to the dailies last week announced the death of B. F. Reed. Of course our Ben saw it, but he says he was not so startled as he was one Sunday at a Methodist church in Mason City when the preacher got up and said: Next Sunday afternoon there will be preaching in the country at the house of Bro. Reed: Bro. Ben Reed—Bro. B. F. Reed." Judge Quarton heard the Estherville _i ±«.;.i.-.si4-inri nnoaa laof*. WP.P.K. find Jim took \J}.

Hayden remained in the house and did not show up in Forest City until about noon when be took the first train for Albert Lea. This looks like a mean sneaking trick for a man to play on a comrade. At last repbrt Jim is getting along nicely and Nelson is still at large. WATER MILL FLOUR*.

Owing ,to the fact that Washington's birthday comes on Saturday this year, the annual celebration by the Post will be held on the night of Friday, the 21st. This will enable those who attend, and we must all go, to get those beans fairly digested during the secular week. Shelley & Pettibone report a fair business in marble these' days. Mr. Geo. Shelley, who bas charge of the cutting of all stones going from their place, is truly an artist in his line, and it is well worth a visit to their shop to see some of the beautiful pieces now displayed. Deputy Sheriff Mark Boyle went to Germania yesterday to arrest Gallagher for his old offens'e of illicit liquor selling. When he was up for that offense before, Judge Thomas promised him a year in the penitentiary should he ever be brought before him again. The city election takes place on the first Monday in March, when aldermen are to be elected in each of the wards. Those whose terms expire are F, H. Vesper'in the first, S, H. >,PetU- bone in tbe second, J.. «X Magnusson in the third and J, F, Nicoulm in tbe fourth. ' President 0, D. Pettibone authorises the notice that the annual meeting of the Algona Cemetery Association wm be held next Saturday afternoon, at 4 o'clock, at the office ofW. H. Nycuw, This is an important meeting and should be attended oy all interested •• saloon injunction cases last week, and the trial resulted in his dissolving the temporary injunctions. The three saloons are running again. It was proved that a bar tender had violated the statute by giving beer to a minor, ana by consent he was made a defendant, and duly enjoined. ' Estherville' probably bas the most virtuous saloon keep r ers in the state.' ' ' ' The fire bell has been moved to the cupola of the city hall, and has been equipped with two clappers. A rope is attached to each clapper, and the two are pulled alternately. The sliding door of the engine room is left unlocked and can be pushed open by anyone having occasion to ring an alarm. After the bell has been rung a moment it is stopped, and after an interval the number of the ward the fire is in is tolled on the bell. The engine room is always lighted. Booming the county by the use of boom editions of any description gotten up outside of the county have always failed. No scheme contemplating a boycott of the newspapers by taking from them their legitimate patron- aee will permanently succeed. Home newspapers will always perform any service in that line that is demanded and paid for, Still people allow themselves to be taken in at frequent intervals, and the outcome is that they expect tbe home newspapers .to dp for nothing what outside booming, twice paid for, fails to do. C. D.

The noise of wax's alarms should not distract attention from the marvelous triumph of science which is- reported from Vienna. It is announced that Prof. Eoutgen, of Wurzburg university, has discovered a light which, for the purposes of photography, will penetrate wood, flesh and most other organic substances. The professor has succeeded in photographing metal weights which were inclosed in a wooden case; also a mon's hand, which showa only the bones, the flesh being invisible. . It is said that the discovery is simple. The professor takes a so-called Crooke's pipe (a vacuum glass pipe), with an induction current going through it) and, by means of rays which the pipe emits, photographs on ordinary photographic plates. In contrast with the ordinary rays of light, these rays peneirate organic matter and other opaque sub stancea just as ordinary rays penetrate glass. He has also succeeded in photographing hidden metals with a cloth thrown over the camera. The rays penetrated not only the wooden case containing the metals, but the fabric in front of the negative. The professor is already using his discovery to photograph broken limbs and bullets in human bodies. THEIR MARVELOUS SCENT. Remarkable Test of Bloodhounds In the Streets of Indianapolis. An interesting test of the skill of bloodhounds in man-tracking through the streets of a populous city, over ice and snow, was given at Indianapolis, Ind., tbe other day in connection with, the pet stock show, which hn.s been m progress for two or three days. I ( our , dogs were entered in the test—Brady and Countess, belonging to S. M. Miller, of Darlington; Prince, owned by Bowers & Harris, of Nobleeville, and Bright* owned by W.S. Fields, of Whcaton. ; , Dr. Bell, of Kokomo, left Tomlinson hall early in the morning, and, after ; walking through alleys and streets, he- placed on a pair of aretic overshoe* and continued 1 his walk through the parks and on the streets frequented by- pedestrians. On the line of march _he, saw a runaway team, and in connection, with the crowd assisted in catching- the horses. He then returned to the, hall, where the show was in progress. An' hour later the dogs were placed; on the trail and followed it with com- , parative ease, except at the point wh^re the runaway was halted, and one or two other places over which there had', been considerable travel and around^ which the crowd following the dogs, surged until it was almost impossible^! ,to break through. With unerring in^l«&, stinct,, however, the dogs again foi the trail, followed it steadily over •.. if entire line which Dr. Bell had walked,,; 1 and back to Tomlinson hall, where they picked him out of a crowd of pey-^, eral hundred people, going up to'him; . and indicating his identity by barking. ,V PERSONAL MENTION. Mrs. C. M. Wilson left for Florida last Friday. She will visit a sister. Miss Mattie Haggard has been quite sick with tonsihtis for several days. Misses Emma and May Henderson spent Sunday in Burt visiting friends and relatives. L. H, Mayne, of the Emmetsburg Eeporter, was visiting old friends m Algona on Friday. C. W. Craven, of Jasper county, a brother of Mrs. Mansmith of Cresco, was visiting in the county last week. Clarence Robinson visited his brother, Earl, up at Estherville last week. Earl is,in the restaurant and lunch room business up there and is prospering. , Joe Cordingley returned home from Chicago Monday morning, alter several weeks spent in the city under medi- ?al treatment.

The battleship Oregon at San Francisco will soon be ready for sea. The last of the armor plates for the turrets have been shipped from the Bethlehem •works in the east for the Union iron works, and according to the contract the vessel is to be completed within 90 days after the receipt of the plates. The armor for the sponsons and barbettes has long been in position and nearly all of the eight-inch and the smaller guns have been mounted. The lour 13-inch guns that are to be protected by the turrets cannot be mounted until the armor plates are in place. One of the turrets was finished a few days ago, but the big weapons will not be placed in it until both turrets are ready; then all four guns will .be mounted at once. 'Nearly all that remains to be done to the big -Wp is to complete that one turret, tuiw it will only require a few days after the arinor plates arrive to do the work, The engines and 'other machinery of the vessel, have been tested and found to be. perfect, and the big battleship can now be- made ready f pr service in a few days, , j,)1<?
