The law allows fish to be taken by hook and line now if you can find any that will bite. We have not heard any very big fish stories iu this neighborhood this spring.

Casler has taken the agency for the Jewell Nursery at Lake City, Mm- D. A. Haggard and' family have been living at the hotels for the past week while plasterers, painters and paperhangers reigned supreme in the family residence. City Clerk Hutchison has taken in about $75 in dog taxes, on 65 dogs. Less than a halt dozen dogs so far have been slaughtered. The shrinkage .in the dog population in these few weeks is something remarkable. The theory of the city officers is that many owners of. dogs have either given their pets away, sold them or sent them to the country. The wedding of Lawyer T. II. McEnroe, of Whittemore, to Miss Bessie, daughter of Capt. D. D. Dodge, of Algona, took place Thursday evening at the Congregational parsonage, Rev. C. E. Sinclair performing the ceremony. There was a pouring rain in progress and but a few guests were present. Mr. and Mrs. McEnroe are at home m Whittemore at present, but it is understood he is looking for a new location for the practice of his profession. Geo. C. Call's mail is much burdened these days with marked papers, circulars and manifestos of every sort intended to influence his vote as a delegate to the national convention. He received Boss Tlatt's circular Monday, telling how dangerous it would be to nominate ti man with the views on currency attributed to McKinley.

Paine went to Chicago, Monday, to make a settlement with a commission house to whom he recently sola and shipped twenty-five carloads ot hay. They refused to pay the price agreed upon. After one side of this paper had gone to press, and with it the notice to contractors on building, Chairman Butler decided to change the date of opening bids from May 27 to June 3. Notice the changed date. There has been no move for a celebration of the Fourth so far, and the impression seems to be that no move will be made. The reasons given are various. It is possible, of course, that Algona will get a move on'er. The regular meeting of the W. L.;A. society will be held at the reading room Friday, Jurfe 5, at 3 p. m. It is hoped that a full attendance ot the members and others will be had, as the program will be one of interest. J. D.

IOLD KfCISTi do say, however, that the boss voted for this dangerous man at the Minneapolis convention four years ago. The REPUBLICAN neglected to mention the marriage of Ilev. O. A. Stevens, formerly pastor of the Algona Baptist church, to Miss Waters, formerly uf the Algona Normal, which took place, we believe, on the 6th instant. But the happy couple did not neglect it. There are many friends ot both parties among us who wish them every happiness. The wedding was at the home of the bride's parents in Columbia, Missouri. The story of "Capture and Escape," which has been running for several months in the columns of the Courier, was concluded last week. Those who have followed ttrls recital of prison life and struggle for freedom, told out ot the memory of an awful experience by neighbor Spencer and his brother oftic- er Gen. Kellogg, will be glad to know that the story will be given to the public in book form now. The REPUBLICAN understands that the widow of Gen. Kellogg, who is in poverty, will be the recipient of any profit that may be derived from the sale of this interesting story. A private letter from Willis M. Hallock, of Reveside, California, savs: A few days ago we went on a visit to .Los Angeles. I might say it was a visit to Algona, for we were the guests ot Dr. James Barr and family, with the exception of the two boys, Bert and Art. The New England annual red figure sale will begin Friday morning. May 22nd and continue for eight days. This sale will be the grandest effort of our existence.

Four architects interviewed the board of education on Monday nigbt and the session lasted until after midnight. Karl's Clover Root Tea is a sure euro for Headache and nervous diseases.

Henry Walter, of Chicago, has been doing business in this section of the state and visiting his relatives and friends, lately. His-Chicago commission house is doing a big business in this part of the country, where he is well known. Mrs. Betsey Norton, mother of Hiram Norton of Burt and Mrs. Robt. Henderson, has been ill for a couple of weeks, but is reported to be better now. Mrs. Norton is upwards of ninety years, of age. She lives with her daughter,; Mrs'. Henderson. The Des Moines Register has this cheering paragraph: The Iowa spring of 1896 is very much like that of Iboo, which followed a mild winter like that of 1S95-'G and was a year of prodigious crops. Father Clarkson grew sod corn in 1855 that was more than equal to the average corn crops on cultivated ground of later years. District Court, with Judge Quarton presiding, will open in Algona next Monday. There are 222 cases on the docket, but no new cases of special importance so far as has developed will be up in the present term. The Clarke- Ellsworth lawyer's fee case will be up for trial the first thing. Rev. C. E. Sinclair and G. C. Hudson went to Davenport Monday morning to attend the annual meeting of the Iowa Congregational Association.

They Misses Nilla and Mamie are younglad- ies grown and the one we knew as a baby in Algona is now a big_ hearty girl of seven. Well, Starr, we just had a iolly time. We also met Dr. and Mrs. Forbush, Mrs. M. J. Mann, of the Mann hill, a Rev. Coleman and Mrs. Rev. White. There are lots of Kossutu county people in this part of the state and the Doctor is finding all ot them. While we were there he met a man on the street car who used to work the Galbraith farm. MEETINCST1LL1NP80C8ESS Evangelist Cordner Closes His Work Sunday Night, But the Meetings Go On. The School Board Cannot Agree on Plans. There was a meeting of the school board last evening, holding till a late hour, to decide ona plan for the new school building, but it ended as it began in a disagreement. There were two plans and the board divided evenly. The only question is as to the exterior design, the interior plans and the cost being substantially the same. It was agreed last night to submit the question to a board of seven outsiders and a decision was expected to be reached to-day. This morning a new complication has arisen and the result cannot be foretold. The site is not settled, though it has been decided to put the building westof the N.-W. track and north of the diagonal road, and not far from the junction. The question is mainly one of negotiation with the parties owning lots in the locality. The grounds will take probably six to eight lots. The contention over school house designs seems to be narrowed to two competing architects, Gutterson, of Mason City, and Parsons of Des Moines. Thousands of cases of consumption, asthma, coughs, colds and croup arocured every clay by Shiloh's euro. 1 Sold by Frank Dingley. NOTED COMPANY COMING will deliver ice any time.

A road wagon and an extension top surrey shown in Wilfrid Jones' advert- isment in this week's REPUBLICAN are to be admired for their beauty and stylish patterns, as pictured, and an inspection of the vehicles at the Wigwam will be a pleasure to intending buyers or anyone else. A visit to the Wigwam is a liberal education in machinery and vehicles to anyone, And now we have a new thing in business enterprise, an oil delivery wagon, run by Stephenson & Stacy, which began its rounds yesterday. The wagon is equipped with a bell to announce its coming, and householders will only have to put out a signal to get their cans filled. The firra will handle Standard oil, as theretofore, and the new service means better accommodation rather than cheajej? fates. , ,, £eo, W, Platt, who attnded, the' , , •grand lodge Of A>X)..U,-W'. at Cedar Rapids last week as the' delegate of the Algona lodge, says it was a great meeting. Pr.

New York ani The best equipped repair shop in this region is that of 0- H- Goodrich, opposite the REPUBLICAN office. Mr. Goodrich recently installed a Shepard iron and wood working lathe which does almost every description of work that anybody ever needs to have done, and otherwise tbe shop is splendidly equipped. Mr. Gopdjrieh is an expert workman, and every kind of repairing is in bis line. Bicycles, guns, umbrel- laju $nd pther, articles are quickly put in order. Mr, ft. has, a fine trade. The meetings under Evangelist Cordner, contrary to the understanding when the REPUBLICAN went to press last week, were'continued through the entire week, and Mr. Cordner preached his closing sermon Sunday night to a packed audience. The meetings during the latter part of the week were interfered with to a considerable extent by heavy rains. The week's rains were the heaviest the county has ever seen, but the audiences were invariably large. Prof. Burnett, who had been having a rest for a few weeks, came on the last of the week and relieved Mr. Jones, who had led the singing as a supply, and during the closing days contributed much to the success ot the meetings. A feature of the Sunday morning meeting was the taking up of a thank offering" for the benefit of the evangelist, Mr. Cordner never makes any bargain in advance, except that his car fare and board shall be paid, but leaves everything further to the people where he works. The business of raising the money was attended to in a very short time Sunday morning, in the absence of Mr. Cordner from the platform, and no begging was done, nor was anyone urged to give more than he was disposed to. Including the evening collection, the sum contributed for the purpose was $328. The meetings are being continued through the present week, and Rev. D. R, Landis of the Baptist church is in charge and preaches every night. It was the unanimous desire of the other pastors that this arrangement be made.

The Cedar Rapids Republican says of their performance in that city a few nights ago: The Columbia Opera company opened a two nights' engagement at Greene's last evening, appearing in Richard Stahl's tuneful two-act comic opera "Said Pasha." The audience was a large one, as well as a thoroughly appreciative one. The singing was excellent and the music catchy and both deserved the hearty reception received. The company in ability is far above the average. In fact nearly all members of the cast are artists, and those lovers of comic opera who remained away from the opera house last night missed a rare musical treat. It is safe to predict that the audience tonight at the performance of the "Black Hussar" will be far larger than it was last evening. The company deserves a thronged house. It carries its own scenery and orchestra. The cast of the Black Hussar is a large one and the costuming is said to be well worth seeing. The opera will be presented by a most capable company.
