There were a considerable number of Burt people down to the Cordner meeting Wednesday night, and they all seemed to enjoy the meeting, but ot course it was not for the reason that it was Algona that was getting the roasting. Jas. Taylor has secured Geo. Noble, of West Union, to take the place of Joe Misbach as salesman. Mr. Noble has had fourteen years' experience and comes highly recommended. His brother is in the employ of W.L. Mitchell & Co. of Corwith. The state meeting of the Epworth League is to be held at Clear Lake July 18 to 22, and the State M. E. Camp- meeting follows, lasting till August 1. Owing to the latter meeting coming within the district, there will be no Algona district campmeeting this year. The Reporter's suspicions are aroused and it says: "We are informed that Link Singleton f Algona's esteemed colored citizen, is busily engaged putting up a neat little cottage in Algona. We AVonder if Link's visits to Emmetsburg have anything to do with the matter? Last Friday Mr. Blossom received this telegram from the manager of the Iowa City Opera House: To manager Opera House: You cannot say too much for the Columbia Opera Company. Tne best that ever played in Iowa City.—PERKY CLARKE, Manager Opera House. Mrs. Rev. Southwell came home Friday afternoon from Correctionville, where she had been for some time. She was feeling much better than for a longtime, but Saturday evening she was taken suddenly worse, and has since been in a serious condition. She was better yesterday. Something that will please the people. The original Tennesseean Jubilee Singers will favor us with one of their fine entertainments Monday, June!l,at'the Congregational church under the auspices of the Epworth League and Christian Endeayor societies.. Jas. Armstrong visited his father at Independence last week and brought back word that he was making satisfactory progress. The Doctor will have a companion and will be allowed considerable liberty in visiting localities in the neighborhood outside of the asylum. Would it not be a good thing to secure a date in Algona for Father Cleary, President of the Catholic Total Abstinence Union of America? He is to speak at Garner, June 1. The REPUBLICAN believes in total abstinence and would like to have the eminent leader secured for an address in the Opera House. Sunday afternoon and nightthere were frequent heavy showers, and half an inch of rain fell. It was a needed rain, as the hot weather and winds were rapidly drying out the ground. The conditions and prospects for crops are certainly very favorable, and it has been a long time since crops got so early a; start. Jas. Taylor's advertisements have come to be looked upon as among the most newsy things in the local papers, and are eagerly read and quoted as authority in matters pertaining to dry goods, millinery, ladies' ready made clothing, etc. His May clothing sale of ladies' capes, skirts and suits is advertised this week. • Miss Barbara Schmidt, the daughter of a widow living near the Grant Benschoter place, died a few days since of goitre on the neck and her funeral was from the Algona Catholic church yes- All Religious Denominations Quoted Against Dancing—The Question is a Special Order on the Streets This Week. Thursday night there was a great audience at the rink to hear Evauerel- Cordner's sermon on the dance. The special subject had been well advertised by means of cards bearing the question: "Why are the Roman Catholic, Episcopal. Presbyterian, Congregational. Baptist, Methodist, etc., gational, Baptist, JM.GUUUUIOIU. Owing to his long illness, from which he is just returning to business. Dr. Studley does not attend the A. O. U. W. grand lodge at Cedar Rapids this week. Geo. Platt is attending as a delegate, and C. Byson will be a visitor on his way east. His Wife will join trim Thursday and go with him to New York, from whence in a couple of weeks they will take steamer for the Fatherland. Attorney Cloud's new buggy horse is making a record for himself. Saturday evening while driving near the water mill the horse became frightened and unmanageable and bolted into the river, upsetting the buggy and giving Mr. Cloud an impromptu bath. No particular damage was done except to Mr. Cloud's wearing apparel and a few bruises. Guy Mantor was in the buggy at the time of the catastrophe. Alf. Naudain returned from Marshal, Minnesota, Saturday, where the cheap land is attracting a good many. Land varies from $6 to $25 an acre, good unimproved land selling for $10. George Call, Marsh Stphens, D. A. Buell and Hardy Buell were there at the same time as Mr. Naudain. Mr. Buell and Hardy invested and it is understood that Mr. Call and Mr. Stephens will do likewise, simply as a speculation. People who lived in Algona twenty years ago or thereabouts will remember that Prof. O. H. Baker of Algona College delivered a lecture on "The Dance and the Dundank." "Whatthe"Dud- etc., churches' opposed to the clanceV" The speaker treated briefly theatre going, card playing and drinking, but gave most of his time to the dance. The question announced for discussion seemed to assume the fact that all the denominations named were opposed to the dance, but the speaker did not assume it. In the case of the Catholics he quoted the pastoral letters of the archbishops and bishops of that church assembled in the plenary council at Baltimore in 1866, in which they warn their people against "the fashionable dances, which, as at present carried on, are revolting to every feeling of delicacy and propriety, and are fraught with the greatest clanger to morals." Ihe Pope of Rome was cited as having declared against it. Prominent Episcopal bishops were quoted, as were the vows assumed in baptism and confirmation. The Baptists, the Presbyterians, the Congregationalists and numerous other churches were given their say. The Presbyterian larger cata- chism and the Methodist discipline added their adverse injunctions. One of the church declarations quoted was that adopted by the annual association of Congregational churches of Iowa, held at Spencer in June, 1895, as follows: "Resolved, That in the opinion of this association the practice of dancing by members of our church is inconsistent with the profession of religion and ought to be made a subject of discipline." The speaker showed that the Mormon church, which for many years encouraged dances and-opened them with prayer, had discontinued and prohibited them. Mr. Cordner treated his subject on general grounds, quoting statistics showing the ill effects of dancing, its expensiveness, danger to health, etc. Mr. Cordner has very radical views on these as on other questions, and he is aggressive and very outspoken. He is not unlike other evangelists in this particular.

It was a plain- presentation of facts, and if the advice^ given was only followed by the finale portion of any town it would work ft revolution of reform. Courier: The evangelist stated Monday evening that a successful revival of religion would be of more benefit tp Algona than a state normal or a million dollar factory. As we have no- good prospects of getting either of the two latter named, we hope that the revival will be a success. DIDN'T KNOW IT WAS LOADED.; Britt Tribune: One of our'Bdtt citr izens took a card home to his wife one evening stating at the same time that he had taken out accident insurance and that it would be necessary for her to sign the application. She accorti' ingly signed it and n, few days later was taking him to tusk for some f ancieo sin of commission or omission when he produced his "card:" Permit:— This is to certify, that I : the legally wedded wife of do hereby permit my husband to go where he pleases, drink what he pleases and when he pleases 1 , and I further- nor more permirffiim to keep and enjoy the company of any lady or ladies he sees fit, as I know he is fi good judge.

Lieut. Geo. S. Foster and bride are expected home to Algona the . latter part of the week, when they will begin arrangements for housekeeping. They are this week visiting the groom's parents and friends in Humboldt. The bride was Miss Elizabeth McCarthy, daughter of Daniel McCarthy, of Ames one of the old and respected settlers of that city, and the attachment now happily consummated dates from Lieut. Foster's college days spent there. The bride is a neice of Auditor of State McCarthy. Eobt. Kuin fell with his horse Wednesday and had one of his legs broken about three inches above the ankle. Both bones were broken clear off, and when the young man tried to lift his leg the foot hung by the muscles. He was brought to his father's home in Algona-, where the limb was set by Dr. Kenefick. He is reported to be doing as well as could be expected. He has rented his farm to the Peterson boys, sons of the stone mason, who are ambitious and will make good farmers. On Monday evening the Fort Dodge Presbytery met in the Presbyterian church of Algona for the purpose of or daining and. installing J. W. Innes as pastor of the church. Rev. Wm. Greenshield, of Burt, presided, Rev. J. Milton Greene, D. D,, of Fort Dodge, preached the sermon, Rev. W, A. Me- Connell, of West Bend, delivered the charge to pastor, aad Rev. J. W- Waite, delivered the charge to tha people. The different brethren who had part in the exercises sustained their reputation as preachers of the word. Dr. Greene's sermon was especially forceful and appropriate. He took as his text 2 Cor. 1:12, "Godly Sincerity." Says the Courier; "B, W. Haggard was in the north part of the county last Monday on business. He drove over what is known as Union Slough, He says that a numbefr of temporary shanties have been built there and at least twenty-five teams are at work breaking, Geo.

Joe has made many friends in Algona who are glad to know of his advancement. He takes up his new work June first.

His land interests about Ledyard are better investments than a slice from Mr. Cleveland's last batch of bonds. Mr. Clarke knows it too. Bert Matthews was over from Spencer Saturday night for the dance, and spent Sunday with his brother, Elmer. All of the young people were glad to see Bert, and to learn that he is prospering in Spencer. Geo. C.
