The United Workmen are talking of. a county Fourth of July celebration. It ought to be an everybody's celebration in Algona. How pleasant it is that we can do one thing and that as good a thing as voting a new school house, with substantial unanimity. County Auditor Calkins has bought of Mr. Lund several lots just north of Charley Palmer's residence, on which he means to build. For the first time in the recent history of the lodge, the United Workmen failed to hold their regular weekly meeting last night. The date of the Columbia Opera company for Algona has been changed from May 21 to 22 to allow the company to take in Decorah. A company of traveling Italian musicians furnished the music for a large and pleasant dancing party at Clarke's hall (Saturday evening. The Dick Palmer building on Thorington street is almost ready for occupancy, and the cigar factory will be at home there next week, Mr. Schu says. Licenses to wed have been issued to Adam Steinman and Sarah E. Bowman, David Whalen and Lena Cairy, and Theo. Schroeder and Maggie Wagner. Tho Mart Weaver residence in the north part of town is up and enclosed. It is going to be one of the many roomy and handsome residences oi that locality. Mr. Walter Forde, from Maukato, Minnesota, has come to Algona with the intention of becoming a resident. He has been looking for a house as he desires to bring his family here.

Nelson, of Buffalo township, ordered an Alpha Baby Cream Separator of Spurbeck & Lambert, last week, for use in his dairy. Mr. Nelson is one of the progressive farmers of Kossuth county. G. B. Mountford, of Spencer, a well known man here for many years, spoke at the Cordner meeting last night. He was a confirmed drunkard but was converted at the Williams meetings last December. John Goeders is advertising a special silk and satin sale for ten days only. He makes a great reduction in these lines and his popular store will undoubtedly be visited by many ladies during the next ten days. E, S. McNamee, of Sanborn, has bought the Johns hotel at the Milwau kee depot and has already taken possession. Mr. McNamee was m the same business at Sanborn and is sam to be a successful hotel man, A shifting about in telegraph men at the Milwaukee 4epofc leaves T, W, Kennedy day operator and J, N, Cole, of Nora Springs, night operator, S.

Hanna now has two lumber yards and is putting on an air of general prosperity, several new buildings having gone up this spring. There was an interesting shooting tournament at the range yesterday afternoon, some sixteen shooters, representing all tte neighbor towns competing with Algona crack shots- Harry Wilson of Euametsburg, Lenander and Sundstrom o£ Bancroft and John G. Smith of Algona, seemed to lead in results. , 0, D. Pettibojne jis going to make cava.tio» oi th,e Iwliajn mounds soutn to4»y t9 brine to light any skeletons that may remain. It has been the supposition that numbers of good Indians are there —Indians who have been very dead for a very long time. Three skeletons already have been exhumed. Dr. McCoy's reelection as Medical Director of the Department of Iowa, G. A. R., is gratifying to his Algona friends. It has been the custom to give only one term, and the exception made in Dr. McCoy's case was a compliment carrying with it the hearty good will of his Iowa comrades. B. W. Haggard purchased of Clerk Grose a half interest in the Phoenix House at Bancroft, last week. He and Geo. Holloway are now the owners of the hotel, with Frank Byrnes as landlord. Ben would make a genial landlord himself, and says it is possible he may try feeding the hungry. Durdall & Co., which is the most wide awake clothing firm that ever came to Algona, are advertising some prices this week that are eye-openers. The goods are to be found in the branch store, next to Dr. Garfield's office. Mr. Durdall has been in Algona a number of years and his reputation as a clothier is well known. The Algona republicans have been interviewed with regard to the calling of the judicial convention, to nominate a successor to Judge Tlwmas, June llth,- as is proposed, and with substantial unanimity they have kicked. They do not see why there need be any hurry about it. Candidacies that won't keep in hot weather had better be buried. There was a change of time on the Milwaukee on Sunday, but no radical change.

John Weseiiberg has bought the north west corner of the square, north of the Free Methodist church, where so many Fourth of July celebrations and picnics have been held, and has already begun hauling foundation stone and material for a residence which will be a line one. The location, which is not far from Park avenue, is one of great natural attractiveness. The Opera House company at their annual meeting last night reelected the old officers without exception. The company has given Algona a splendid list of entertainments during the jear and their efforts have been appreciated by the community. The officers are: E. E. Sayers, president; B. W. Haggard, vice president; F. W. Dingley, treasurer; Alex. White, secretary, and C. H. Blossom, manager. Mrs, E, M. Gettz, who had to make her visit very short here on account of her asthma trouble, is expected to return to Algona the latter part of the week from the eastern part of the state where she has been visiting with Mr. Gettz's relatives. She intends to stay about six weeks, but Mr. Gettz had to return to Colorado last Wednesday on account of his business interests. Grandfather John Heckart will be 01 years old in a few days. He is feeling first rate and has a good appetite and good digestion. He walks usually without a cane and has put in his garden with his accustomed regard to the earliest results. He reports that his potatoes are nearly up, and all his garden >l sass" is looking finely. He is luxuriating in the glorious May sunshine and is happy. Emmetsburg wants the I. N, G. encampment. The Reporter says "When Col. Wilkins was here he said that no place bad a better camp ground or a better range for rifle practice, and intimated that if the proper effort was put forth, "EJmmetsburg 'could get the encampment. It will take about $500 to secure the encampment, but it will bring at least $5,000 in the t9wn. If the citizens think it worth having they should take immediate steps to get it." TJie Midland Monthly, the literary pi%ei,e pf ^owa aM the vgreat^middle west, giyea Henry •:'£t9&&&:t l$>* u e?- teMed>J»ent)iQti W^its -May ntimber. The Midland finds in the book much to commend but is curious to know whether the author is in jest or earnest when it runs up against the endorsement of the Malthusian theory <and the three objects of worship. This is not strange Some people object to an occasional thing they find in the REPUBLICAN John T> Davis, who cume to Alg from his farm in Fenton township a year or so ago, died Saturday and bis funeral was from the Episcopal churph on Monday. He was 69 years old and was a native of New York, He bad been q, resident of this county since 1865. He was a veteran of the war,was a carpenter py trade, and had in his prime been a, great traveler- He was twice married and bis second w}fe,wn,o was Lucy D. Shield, also of New Yorfc, witU QJW qhUdi survives hinj. •The ladies of the Algon** Relief CQt'pi feaye a,e,je$pte4 thft .offer of Taylor to give them the running of his store May ISth, with the profits. The ladies will use the profits, whatever they may be, for the benefit of the children's sewing school which they have been pushing of late. This little school has been a great success and is a growing one. The girls who attend Saturdays are showing great progress. Recently a little tot only four years old came to the school and was a bright pupil. The enterprise is one to be encouraged. Now that the city has provided for a dog tax, and Bro. Starr is using his influence to have the cats taxed or exterminated, Col. Spencer thinks it is high time the chickens were receiving some attention. It's hardly worth the labor expended in making gardens while the chickens have the freedom of the city,—Courier. Coming at a time when we had got those chickens hermetically sealed up this seems to us a most unkind thrust. Among the many presents to Dr. sincl Mrs. Hudson on their golden wedding anniversary was a beautiful book, "Many Thoughts for Many Hours," from Ex-Mayor Ambrose A. Call and wife, with the following verse written within: Some clouds no doubt have crossed your sky, Some sorrows and some tears; But faith and hope beyond them lie, Good deeds and actions never die; The world is better for your fifty golden years. Two broken bridges in one week. August Sterzbach met with a serious mishap at the creamery Thursday. He was finishing up the work of the. day in his accustomed neat fashion, and was rinsing out his churn with hat water. He had run the belt on, and at the Bright time he-ran iboff, and stood by the swiftly revolving cylinder waiting for it to stop. He had his hands up, waiting to open the churn, when the loose section became unfastened and flew out with such force as to knock him clear under the butter worker. There was no one iu the creamery with him at the time, and so Mr. Sterzbach laid- under the butter worker undisturbed till lie got ready to come to his senses. When he did so his face wa: covered with blood, and it seemed to him that it was all mashed in. He reached for a can of cold water, but be- before he could do much he fainted. When he was in shape to size matters up he found that his nose was the chiet sufferer. The bridge bone \yas cracked, and he has had to explain matters. The other victim was N. A. Pine, of Sexton. He was working on a bridge and fell through, breaking or battering the bridge of his nose. The REPUBLICAN has not been able to secure particulars, but judging from the looks of Father Pine's nose the two bridges collided with considerable force. His bridge timber being only Pine, and the other presumably oak, the result was one that might have been predicted. In order to organize a class in music as quickly as possible I will make a special rate of $10 per term of 24 lessons to all who commence before June 1st. .Terms: One-half in advance anc one-half at the close of the first halt term.

The same genial spring that always comes and makes our feet ache, and brings horse radish, and makes the prairie chickens hoot; and the head of the house has to take off the storm doors and get the banking away and eat mush in the back room while the wome'i folks pile everything out on the porch because i is spring, Oh, spring! Sweet spring why have you thus sprung? It makes us think of happy boyhood days when we went home with the shoemaker's girl and the old man came with his strap just as we were leaning over the gate, watching the stars in her eyes and thinking of heaven. That was a good strap and it was in the spring anc then we started' foi- liome an4 ( lpQKeda toe stargi tifeinklqg ab^ut ty, eye$, and f|ll ovejMtn. ojd cpw'lyiog m tJie road and came near breaking our neck.

The special election on the question f issuing $7,000 bonds wherewith to )uild a new school house, came off Vtonday afternoon, the balloting being n the sheriff's office and resulting in 34 votes for to 7 against. There was apparently no work done on either side >ut the important question was notov- rlooked, as the considerable vote test- fies. The directors were unanimous in avoring bonds and the result is espec- ally gratifying to them. A question .vhich had been quietly discussed prior o the election was whether women vould or could vote, under the law in- ended to give them the ballot in the ettlement of questions of issuing chool bonds, but not a woman appear- id at the polls, a fact due probably to he absence of a contest. Several tlis- ,rict courts have held the law to be un- 3onstitutioual, but the question has lever been carried to the supreme jourt. We may presume that some at east of the directors are in favor of woman suffrage, but they were anxious hat no question should come up which might involve that of the legality of he bonds, and so they were well pleased because of their not being called upon to pass upon the question. At a meeting held Monday night it was decided that the full board should be a committee to locate the new building, ind they will make a preliminary investigation of the site question today. The work of preparation will be begun at once, and the business will be pushed, with a view to having the building •eady for occupancy when the fall term opens. Already many inquiries are ;oming in to Secretary Doxsee in ref ard to the bonds, and many bids are expected. The old school house bonds )ore 51 per cent., but it is hoped to sell a five per cent bond now.
