Invitations are out for the golden wedding of Dr. and Mrs. Hudson, which is to be celebrated on April 30th, There is great propriety in thus honoring this worthy couple, Clarence Bobinson.of the State Bank barber shop, had charge of the shop at Wesley last week during the absence of the proprietor. Clarence is becon> ing a first-class workman. The rain of Sunday night was _the heaviest of the spring so far. Mr. 1 et- tibone says there was about 85 nund- redths of an inch. We have had about three inches of rain this spring. Mrs. J. B. Jones arrived home from Florida Monday morning.

The school board went in a body, Monday afternoon, to inspect the basement, in which part of the primary pupils now are. They think they have done the best that could be done at the present time. The new mail arrangement is making the BBPUBLIOAN some trouble. The mail from Bancroft does not reach here until 8 p. m., which is late tor us, and so we got our Bancroft news by telephone yesterday. Mr- A. II. Allen, who has been running si lunch room in the basement of Geo. Call'sbuilding, opened up his O. it restaurant in the oid L, M-. B. Smith building last Monday, evening. The building toeen newly painted and papered and Mr. Allen possesses r™ of the finest restayrants Jn the eity. The Odd Fellows will have a public service in their hall Sunday next, April 26, at 2 p. m., in commemoration of the seventy-seventh anniversary of American Odd Fellowship. A sermon will be preached by Bev. W. F. Laidley, of Bancroft. All are cordially invited, and there will be no call for the grip or password. The Buthven Appeal says: Peach Cowan, of Algona, one of the best brick masons and contractors in northwest Iowa, and withal a jolly good fellow, was a Buthven caller Tuesday between trains. He was on his waytoBolfeand Eagle Grove, at which places he has bids in for putting up some big brick buildings. Gardner Cowles is going to make a fine addition to his residence this season. He finds his quarters cramped with his growing family. The addition will, of course, be in a style harmonious with the present structure, and tha residence when completed as designed will be beautiful as well as commodious, Mr. Huey, the brick man, tested seven samples of Clay from different quarters of town last week without finding any sufficiently free from lime to admit of its profitable US.e. fpr tile, He has now found a deposit'; southMSJt ot town of which he L is quite confldeat, and by Saturday he will be able to report regarding it, There is no telling what this admin- stration won't do. The latest is an interference in the Algona pension board in the removal of Dr. McCoy and the appointment in his place of Dr- Dunlap of Ledyard. Dr, punlap j s all right, of course, but what is the matter with Dr. McCoy, that a democratic administration should remove him, unless because he is a veteran r Some Algona, families never have quite the right spring feeling until tfae trip has been made to Mann's hill and a well rewarded search has been made for bepaticas. Some of these favorite early blooms have been reported in Blacksford's woods west of towns, and some have been found in the woods in tbeM-D. L. Paraons neighborhood, but generally speaking this flower is a rarity, and very few people ja thjs locality sseU it anywhere else than at Mann's hill, where it a,bmjnds. It was to gicfc th.eni $here lasjb week. The meetings are continued at the S. D. A. church this week. Elder G. F. Watson and Miss Jessie Livingston will occupy the time Wednesday and Thursday evenings. Friday and Saturday evenings Bev. Henry Johnson will preach on "Bewards" and "The Beligion of the Apostle Paul," and Sunday evening lid will preach his closing sermon on "The Three-fold Be- deniption." The pastures are having an early spring opening. Ambrose A. Call advertises in our columns this week that his pastures are ready for their share of cows. The lawns of Algona never made such a quick shift from brown to solid green. The unusually warm weather and the presence of just enough moisture in the soil are the explanation of the speedy transformation. E, W. Goodner had a long talk with Mary Ellen Lease on his Kansas trip. Mrs. Lease has frequently made Mr. Goodner's fathers house her home while on her travels and happening to meet her on a train he introduced himself and had the pleasure of the gifted lady's entertaining conversation. Mrs. Lease has quit politics and is now a preacher.- Mr. G. also saw Senator Tillinan, of South Carolina. A couple of Union farmers traded horses on a recent Sunday and exchanged property, but later one of them traded back again in the other's absence, and suit for replevin before Justice Taylor one day last week was the consequence. The latter granted the writ, taking the position that the law in cases of Sunday trading left the ownership where the property was found. In these days of newspaper fakes nobody is safe. Here the U. D. M. has been taken in by a fake special to the Des Moines Leader which told about a brilliant sneech delivered by J. J. Byan at the Jefferson banquet at Mason Citj recently. The U. D. M. said Byan's speech was very witty, which of course it was, but it was, as near as we can learn, delivered to his girl at Fort Dodge. He didn't attend the Mason City banquet. Hicks says that May will be the wet test month of the spring—that too much water will fall in that month for many lowlands and enough to thoroughly moisten nearly all sections o the country. The Solstice rains in June will not be excessive, but sufficient ir most parts to nourish well cultivated crops. In localities here and there some heavy downpours will Occur. The last half of August and intoSeptembe will bring another period of rains t< central and northerly portions of th country. , T. II. Weisenberg came up from Klemme the first of the week to mak Algona his home, intending to giv a part of his attention to real estate His brother-in-law, A. Lutterman, anc family are also liere with the purpos .of permanent location. In fact thej will at once begin the erection of a res idence. Mr. Lutterman is a carpente and will look after the work himselt Mr. Weisenberg says his brothers are doing a thriving business in the growing town of Klemme, where they went from here last season. Arbor day will be celebrated on Friday at the Normal. The exercises are to .pegin at 9 o'clock, with the following 'program: Arbor day anthem; Short History of Arbor Day, Miss Frances Farley; Celebrated Trees, Claude Stull; Beading, Forest Hymn, Miss Ada Smith; Best Trees to Plant, W. A. Parsons; Becitation, The Oak, Miss Grace Gaffney; Planting Trees a Patriotic Duty, Jewel Patterson; How to Plant a Tree, L. J. Wilkinson; Class Tree, 1896, Miss Mary Gaffney. Horace Mann's birthday will be appropriately celebrated May 4th. There was an interesting suit before Justice Taylor Friday in which J. A. Kellar and J. C. Baker, living southeast of Ledyard, were brought to answer the charge of selling property upon which a sheriff's levy had been made to satisfy a judgement. Sheriff Samson was the prosecuting witness and Lawyer Baymond appeared for the state, while Attorney E. V. Swetting and Marsh Stephens defended. There was little serious question regarding the facts, and the law being clear, the men were held to the grand jury, and were required to give bail. Postmaster Hinchon says the new mail arrangement on the northwestern is not as satisfactory as the old. The pouch mail comes from the south in the morning as heretofore, and an hour earlier, and the open mail comes from the south at 2:49 p, m. This is an improvement of our facilities from the south, as both the mails are earlier, but we have only one mail from the north daily, and that is scheduled at 8 p. m., which is the closing time of the postoffice. This mail did not reach the office Monday night till half past eight when the office had just closed. Even were the office held open, very tew would get their mail from the north until the following day. Mr. Hinchon thinks there will be a change, and certainly it is a thing to be desired.

The revival meetings opened on Monday as advertised, but Bev. Cordner and Mr. Burnett were not present, having determined to spend another week in Plattsville, The resident pastors concluded to go ahead with the meetings, and large congregations are iu attendance at the rink nightly. The hall is well seated, brilliantly lighted, and the platform is handsomely decorated witn bunting. Bev. D- B. Landis preached a very able sermon Monday evelinfvlnd BBV. G. -W. Southwell last night delivered a strong and eloquent Plea for the study of the bible. It is expected that Bev. C. E. Sinclair will preach tonight, and that Bev. fcn» nis, of the Presbyterian church, w?ll follow tomorrow night. The evangelist and singer are confidently expected next Monday night. The Kossuth county populist convention was held at Burt on Wednesday Jast. The resolutions which were discussed at length by S. H. McNutt, M. D. L. Parsons and others, favor t»e free and unlimited coinage of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1 without international agreement, the issue of all money, whether gold, silver or paper, by the government, and to be a full legal tender for all debts, public and pn- vote, an increase of the circulation to at least $50 per capita, the adoption ot the so-cftlled "initiative and refer- endum, and the election of president, vice president and United btates senators, by the people. G. G- Wolcott- >ym, $trekto sad Messrs. PaJmera»d Fuller were elected as delegates to the state convention. Mr. and Mrs. Christian Byson are going to take their departure next month for Germany and Denmark, where they will spend the summer. Mr. Byson Las'sold the farm to his son John and has disposed of his personal property, and he and his wife will take a vacation in the old countiy. Mr. Byson's parents are both dead, but Mrs. Byson's mother is still living, though ninety years of age. Mr. Byson came to the United States in 1869, settling in Pennsylvania. He had only a dollar in his pocket when he lauded at Castle Garden. He accumulated quite a little property in a few years, but when he returned to the old country he divided $0,000 between two banks, and when he returned he found that both of them had gone under in a panic, and he was thereby reduced to about the condition he found himself in on his first arrival. Mr. Byson came to this county in 1882. He has made a competence and is very well to do nnd can afford the little jaunt abroad. He has many friends who will join in good wishes for a safe return to him and his good wife. A great sensation of the week has been the deposition of President Cleveland's brother from the pastorate of the Presbyterian church at Chaumont, N. Y. Public interest in the matter is due largely, of course, to the fact that the clergyman whose pastorial relation was dissolved by the presbytery was the president's brother. In Algona the matter lias a special interest to the old friends of "Ike" Van Doreu, nephew of the late A. M. Horton, who spent some time as a teacher here, returning to his New York home some ten or ,welve years ago, he and his father laving been most influential in securing the tardy action taken by the pres- aytery. It was the elder Van Doren to whom the Bev. Cleveland referred in his letter to the press last Friday as the member who reduced his pew rents, alleging too much tariff reform as his reason, Letters to his relatives here from the younger Van Doren told of this action of his father at the time, and it appears that the latter had been paying the rent of three pews, though able to only partially fill one with himself and wife. His idea seems to have been that the tariff was too high and was for revenue only, whereas he is a thorough protectionist, and was disposed to try reducing the surplus as a means of protection against poor preaching- : The preacher Cleveland appears to have all the egotism and dogmatism of his brother, the president, and has made a long and stubborn fight against the prepondering sentiment of his parish, He preached his fareweil sermon Sunday. Some anxiety has been manifested in regard to the sanitary condition of the room in the basement of the school building which is now assigned to a division of the primary class under Miss Myrtle Putsch, and quite a number of the little ones have been remoy ed and are being kept at home by their parents. The fact appears to be that the atmosphere is not as clear and wholesome us is to be breathed in the rooms capable of better ventilation,but at the same tirn,e is not by any means as bad as some have supposed, and ordinarily the water closet odor which, has been talked about has n °*< usually been psreeptible to the ordinary | M " of smell. The state of health of • room.,averages. ^-^ gle case of sickness among them. At the same time the board canvassed the situation thoroughly before placing these children in the basement, and did not do so until they found themselves compelled to. The lecture room of the Baptist,church could have been secured, but no suitable desks norwat- er closet facilities could be had there. There has been some talk that pupils under school age are admitted. It is found that there is hardly one of .that class. The children are entitled to a place in the school, and they cannot be sent home. They have to be provided Cor, and the board are doing the very best they can with them. The situation is such as to compel the building of a new school house, and it is fortunate that board have decided thus early to submit the question to a vote next month.
