Grose says the county convention to choose state congressional and judicial delegates will come July 10, and the county nominating conveii j tion will be Sept. 11. An article from Wallace's Farmer on hail insurance appears in another column. Enthusiasm for the Hail Mutual among those who have been insured in it is a very strong recommendation for the company. Geo. S. Angus, ot Burt, represents this company in Kossuth. Algona was overflowing with tramps last week, and Marshal Horan put a number of them in duress and gave them work on the streets. It looked rather hard to see these tramps at work with ball and chain ornaments, and nearly every man and boy standing by watching them. Wilfrid Jones tells a tale of the McCormick binder this week, and says anyone wishing to investigate its merits will be given a book describing its perfection in any language by calling at the Wigwam. The Wigwam has a reputation for selling the best of everything in machinery. . An indication of the early spring of 1896 is the fact that plum trees are in full bloom, and crab apple trees are showing their color. Everything is blooming early except the new woman with her bloomers. Poor old unfra- grant new woman. She has gone*to meet the pup without a tag. The school board have removed the row of maples immediately in front of the school building and have planted a row of elms outside the walk on the south side. All dead trees have been replaced with new, andthe rejuvenated appearance of the grounds evinces a praiseworthy degree of interest on the part of the board. , Pr. Armstrong's condition has been serious for some time, and is so now. He seems to Iwe considerable strength yet, however, and Monday, when he was visited by Prs. Garfield and Kene- iickat his Irvington home, he was about his house and yard. His trouble, is mainly a nervous affection, ard he has been delirious much of the time. Mr. Huey reports that the clay that he burned last week proved to be practically free from lime, and adapted to the manufacture of firstclass tile. The land, however, turns out not to be on the market, and clay from another locality is being tested this week. The experiments so far made have set at rest the doubts entertained with regard to our not having good tile clay. There is a great deal of tree planting going on. The people have lost many trees by reason of drouth during the past few seasons, and a large lot of evergreens have sent in death notices this spring, but the people have not been driven' from planting, and it is well. We may not unlikely have a number of seasons now specially favorable to tree growth. Accepting and acting upon a suggestion made by the REPUBLICAN several weeks since, the Courier has made arrangements for issuing in pamphlet form the thrilling story of "Capture and Escape," from the pens of Gen. Kellogg and Col. Spencer, which has been running in its columns for some months. The story 'will be ready for publication in the new and permanent form as soon as the Courier's publication is completed. The special election to be held next Monday to vote on the proposition to issue bonds for the building of a school house has called forth very little debate so far- There-has been but little opposition to it, and the almost universal sentiment as expressed so far is favorable. With the situation as it is, with the main building already overcrowded, no way out, other than by the erection of a new building, seems to suggest itself, What is in store for the Algona city council who passed the dog ordinance may be judged from the results of a lesser provocation at Fort Podge, where an exasperated citizen appeared in the council chamber at a recent session and pulled bis six shooter on the city fathers, demanding the repeal. of a sewer tax. It was a fortunate thing jp the Fort Podge case that there was a man handy by to make prompt application of muscular, suasion, anfl the council has so far not lost a, man, « The petit jurpfs fpr t^eMa'y t£rms_t° man, I.

It is merely a coincidence that it is the birthday anniversary of Horace Mann, the distinguished e.du- pator, who did pore for hunaan benefit than many large and expensive armies.

That is what the new school house is to be for. The tramp nuisance has been an important problem with the city officials during the past week. Marshal Horan and night police Hunter have arrested eleven tramps and vagrants and they have been the guests of the city for several days. Maycfr Haggard's ;policy is to make them pay their board tty working on the streets and he sentenced them to ten days labor for the city. The idea is a good one and if carried out, as it undoubtedly will be, Algona will soon have a reputation among the "Wandering Willies" that will make them give the town a wide berth. The Algona State Bank people were very much surprised, Thursday morning, to find a big section of one of the southeast corner windows in.the second st'drylying on the sidewalk and scattered in the street in little pieces. They were much perplexed at first to explain the accident, but the strong wind of the night previous was shouldered with the responsibility. It had access through open transoms and had full swing through several rooms. The glass was firmly bedded in the sash, but is supposed that the stick in the curtain of a near window did the pounding that shattered it. There was not the smallest piece of glass to be found in the Deposit £ Loan rooms. At the meeting of James C. Taylor Post, G. A. B., last Wednesday evening, the matter of Dr. McCoy's dismissal from the Algona pension examining board was brought up and a resolution was introduced by County Attorney Baymond and passed by unanimous vote, expressing confidence in the Doctor as a man and as a member of the examining board. Dr. Sheetz made a speech in which he told of his long association with Dr. McCoy on the board and testified to his uniformly fair and conscientious treatment of all applicants for examination. A mem- .ber of the post expressed what is probably a very prevalent feeling when he said he should regard a dismissal coming from the present management of the pension bureau at Washington an honor rather than as a disgrace. The action of the Algona post, coming with unanimity and spontaneous good will which characterized its passage, can but be gratifying to Dr, McCoy.

B, Worden, 3 Sold by Frank Dlngley. _ The Mason City boom paper has at last been distributed over the county, and if outside comment corresponds with what is heard in Algona it has made anything but a pleasing impres' sion, Either of the Algona printing offices could have turned out; a more valuable and more creditable paper, one containing fewer mistakes, . One of the first things to attract attention is the heading, the feature of which is a huge ear ot corn, extending clear across the page, in the shade of which maybe seen a large farm house, and a drove each of hogs, cattle and horses, with unoccupied space sufficient tor accommodate several carloads more. Generally spewing, the wprjs; to a notch, and numej»«s errors appear to vex the pat^ ronsrrhe write-up is a dismal failure and is not adapted to attract settlers. An intelligent treatment, by some one conversant with the resources of the country, would have done good, but this paper makes a bad impression ev erywnere and we think those who have put their money into it would like to have the edition suppressed. Word comes now that the photographer and the solicitors are calling in vain for thejrpay- These things are somewhat disgustingj of course, and disappoint' ing to such as have never before pat- roni»ed outside advertising schemes and have not learned that they are all, without eseeption, failures if not HERE WE ARE WITH A Carload f Furniture Fresh the from factory ........
