Dr. Quinn, the optician, was in Algona last week, at Dingley & Pugh's, and had a splendid trade in spectacles and eye glasses. This gentleman is an expert, and deals in only the best goods, and naturally, there in never any dissatisfaction. He will visit Algona every six weeks, and any who wish to have their eyes fitted will do well to watch for his announcement and give him a call. The contest begun in Judge Quarton's court in the division of the David Dutton estate was brought to an end yesterday by an agreement which gives Mrs. Laura Gilbert, of Rocktord, Illinois, $1,000 in full satisfaction ot her claims, including her share in the estate. Mrs. Gilbert claimed some personal property as her father's gift to her which the other heirs included in their inventory of the estate. Mayor Haggard wishes a gentle but effective hint given to all whom it may concern that this is the right time to attend to the cleaning up of the alleys and putting of the town in a sanitary condition. Things to be promptly attended to are the piles of straw and rubbish that in a dry time especially will help to spread any fire that may break out. The suggestions are timely and ifc ought not to be necessory to repeat them. The rapid increase in the school attendance must suggest to the school board the necessity of more school room, that more teachers may be employed. The situation under present accommodations was summed up by somebody who said we must either kill off some of the children or kill off some of the teachers. One hundred little ones under one teacher ought to effect the latter result. The time has come to move for a new school house. p. s.—The board will move in the matter. The Western Economist, of Des Moines, gives in its April number six portraits of leading members of the senate and house building and loan committees. Mr. Mayne and Mr, 1 unk are two of the six. The Economist says of Mr. Mayne that *'No membei of either house was more active and efficient in securing the passage of the building and loan bill. Mr. Mayne worked early and late to perfect a measure that would be satisfactory to l parties concerned," r So we have placed Mr. Mayne's portrait in our gallery of statesmen- The sale of school lands took place as advertised last Wednesday but only a quarter of the lands offeree was sold. The lands advertised; an offered were section 19 in Grant -town ship and section 16 in Eagle. Thi trustees appraised both sections at 82< an acre, which it is understood spoile thesi»5e. Archie Hutchison, of Algo na, and Henry KUndt, of LuVern between them took tbe south half o tbe Eagle township section offered a $20, and there the sale stopped. An adjourned sale will, it is understood be held- The local Woman's Christian Tern perance Union was organized as announced last Wednesday afternoon, with Mrs. O.F. Calkins as president, Miss Nellie Hamilton secretary and Mrs. G. C. Hudson treasurer. There will be a meeting at the Congregational church next Wednesday afternoon, April 15, at 3 o'clock, when the program will include devotional exercises, I statement of the objects of thei organization, by the president, a history oltjjs national society by ^Mrs. Air. of business. The presence of those who contemplate joining is desired. The regular meetings will be held once in two weeks until further notice is given. The best April fool joke we have heard of this year was worked on the Courier by the Emmetsburg Tribune, which manufactured for the local market A sensational half column yarn headed "The Work of Fiends." The story was about a murderous assault upon the family of "Adam Good-, •sell." The wholfe thing went in in full, and Ike failed to detect tbe significance of the name of the head of the family until the paper was a day or two old. He has a list of other wide- awake newspaper men who were caught.with the same bait. The Washington Post of the 26th ult. as this item which will interest»11 the riends of Col. Spencer, whose brother t refers to: It will be thirty years tomorrow since VIr. William E. Spencer, the journal lerk of the United States senate, was frst appointed to position in the senate secretary's office. He was appoint- d March 27, 1866, upon the recommendation of the late Senator Timothy O. Howe of Wisconsin, Mr. Spencer s now recognized as the most reliable minority on senate rules and on gen- iral parliamentary law and usage. A letter from Willis M. Halluck, of Riverside, California, formerly one ot he publishers of the REPUBLICAN, says le is doing fairly well, has a good lome and a happy family, and lives in ho best climate this side of paradise. !rlr. Hallock is working on a Riverside paper, and a clipping he encloses tells of a fire which broke out in his residence, which happily was got under control before it did much damage. He writes that nothing reminds him so forcibly of the flight of time as to read now and then an item of marriage or entertainment in which the participants were little girls when he left Aliona. The REPUBLICAN does not usually, feel called upon for advice to its esteemed contemporaries, but it wishes X> suggest to tbe Courier to follow its publication ofcwar reminiscences from the pens of Col. Spepcer and Gen. Kellogg by placing them in permanent book form, These contributions to the literature of the war period are very interesting and deserving of permanent record, They are worthy of wider reading than even a padded list can give them. It is the REPUBLICAN'S opinion that advance subscriptions to the proposed volume would go far towards meeting the necessary expense of its publication. There was an adjourned meeting of the AJgona Cemetery Association bat' urday, when a resolution was adopted requiring, that aji resident owners of 'cemetery lots keep them in proper-condition by at least mowing the grass and cutting the weeds, In case of their failure to meet this requirement the asspciation will do the work, and charge the expense to lot owners. 4 his regulation will apply to all owners of lots in this county- An amendment to the constitution was introduced, to, come up for disposal at a meeting to be held on the first Saturday in June, providing a sinking fund, from the sale of lots, only the interest of which can be used for keeping the grounds. A fijnd of $700 to $800 is now in the treasury, out of which it is expected the expense of constructing a receiving •vault this season will he met. The managers desire eventually to erect a chapel on the grounds for funeral services. NEW SCHOOL BUILDING. Proposition to Build a Six Thousand Dollar School House in the Third Ward. It is understood that the school board will this week vote on submitting to the taxpayers the proposition to bond the independent district for a new $6,000 school house, .the crowded condition of the main building compelling such action. . The school board selected Mass Jennie Pettibone of the Wesley school to tjike the place made vacant by marriage last week. Miss Pettibone is a teacher of much experience and one who has made a record of splendid success wherever she has taught. She adds to her other qualifications a never failing tact which makes her equal to all emergencies. Miss Pettibone takes the third room and Miss Stephens the second. CITY SCHOOL NOTES.

PERSONAL, MENTION, ; Opl, J, M,: Comtek made AJgoaa a visit over Sunday while on his return trip from New York city, where he went as the representative ot the city of Spokane to negotiate the sale of several hundred thousand dollars worth of city bonds. His bonds were 5 per cent and he could not dispose of them, though there was plenty of money- He went home firm in tbe belief that the people of his state bad to pay one per cent- premium on their free silver politics. Personally Col- Comstock is radically opposed to tbe free silver notions which have prevailed in his section, and he believes that they will be repudiated by the republican par" of Washington. The people of SPO,, uue have been utilizing Col- pom- stock's splendid business ability jn their city administration. He has been a member of tbe city. cpiineil for and is now ch%«;ipan oj me He vraM te» parently they are always going to keep- a stiff upper lip and insist that they are not homesick to get back to Iowa.
