The Algona band will be one of the attractions. Some fine music may be expected. The St. Paul Dispatch has a lengthy review of "The Gopher," the annual publication of the Minnesota university students, of which Geo. florton of this place is one of the editors.

Landlord McMurray is a pleasant host and is making a popular hotel of the Thorington. Photographer Peterson has a card in this week's REPUBLICAN. Mr. Peterson t keeps abreast of the times in everything pertaining to the art of photography, and his steadily increasing business gives evidence that his enterprise is appreciated. Mayor Haggard dealt with a couple of varfegated drunks the first of the week. The REPUBLICAN will not de part from its policy at this time and give the names, as it is only right to treat the poor wretch and the ricn foo alike. We intend trying publicity on the latter first. Dr. Kenefick is driying a double team these days. He has recently pin- chased a horse that has racing blood in his veins and which will carry him over the county in double quick time The doctor is a great admirer of fast horses, not particularly for racing purposes, but for general driving purposes.

Algona gets the annual meeting of the Iowa Congregational association next year. It will come in May, as usual. The invitation of the Algom church was extended by Rev. Sinclair These meetings bring together about 100 of the representative men of the denomination, and the occasion will be an interesting and enjoyable one to Algonans. The Courier office has just completed and issued in pamphlet form the story of "Capture and Escape" recently pub lished in its columns, from the pens ot Gen. John A. Kellogg and Col. R. H Spencer. Only 1500 copies have been printed. The work is well done and is creditable to the Courier office, while the story is one that all who have not already done so will want to read.

This will be the third time for Miss Wartman to. sing before the association, and the compliment oi these repeated invitations would seem to imply that she always sings on the square and that her compass is good. We are having glorious weather this spring—never finer, The reports from the crops from the country are that the crops are in number one condition The rains did not interfere with the seasonable planting of corn. The crop is now up and ready for the plow, and small grains are. 4oing well, The grass crop fn Kossuth wiHbeJmwLense, this The Schu & Waterbouse cigay _ tbry is occupying its new quarters, which is a model of beauty and convenience.

I, Brayton's Bancroft friend paid him a visit, and as a reminde that he was sixty years old, presented him with a big p9cket book which prob ably some day will be fat. When h came to inspect it be found a 65 bill in it. Mr. Brayton is one of the early set tiers of Kossuth i and among those wh have known him longest he is mos sincerely respected. Republicans and democrats in na were sorry that Mr. Lund was no selected as one of the delegates to th democratic national convention a Chicago, but the places were capturec by a combination in the southern tie of counties, and 0.0. Colclo of Carroi and R. F. Jordan of Bqone were elect ed district delegates. It seemed to u at. the time that Bro. Lund and Bro Taylor got-a late start for (be conven tton, Dr. Hudson hands the REPUBLICAN late paper containing an account f the celebration of the 90th year of ie sportsman-poet, Isaac McClellan, f Greensport, Long Island. Mr. Mclellan was an intimate of Daniel Vebster and Dr. Hudson remembefs eeing the two friends fishing together t Greenport. McClellan was a friend f Longfellow, Willis and Hawthorne. Ie has a volume of poems in press now, ntitled "Haunts of Wild Game." The Christian Endeavor Association f the second district of Iowa, which nclndes the Algona society, will meet t Clarion June 16 and 17. The socie- ies at Clarion extend a hearty invifca- ion to all societies in the district to ttend this convention and help to make it the best ever held. Any in- ormation can be secured from G. A. Cing, of Clarion. It is likely that Alona will be well represented. There was a large audience at the ink Sunday morning to listen to the memorial sermon delivered by Rev. G. V. Southwell of the M. E. church, 'he Grand Army comrades. Sons of Veterans and Woman's Relief Corps were all well represented by detachments occupying .reserved seats. The ermon was one of the very best that was ever delivered in Algona on a like ccasion, and the audience was a very attentive and appreciative one. II. A. Paine, who was in Chicago last veek, called at the hospital to see Charley Bronson, the Wesley stock man ffho was run over by a freight train, a hort time before his foot was amputa- ed. lie says the doctors thought they could save the foot, but Mr. Bronson didn't want to take any chances of jlood poisoning and so it was cut off ibout midway between the ankle and cnee. It is the right limb, and it is understood that Mr. Bronson will received $1500 from an accident insurance lompany. Mr. Spurbeck was up in German ownship a day or two ago and sold a Baby separator to Geo. H. Nelson, one of the thrifty dairymen of that township. Mr. Nelson is one of the best ixed men in the county for setting his milk, as he has a water tank in his cel- ar supplied by wind mill power, but in 3pite of that after a two weeks' trial of he separator, he made up his mind hat he could not afford to be without Dne. A trial of the little machine *vould convince many other farmers to he same effect. The gospel meetings came to a close Sunday night. The meetings of the closing week,under the conduct of the Rev. D.R. Landis of the Baptist church, were very interesting and successful, riuite a number turning to Christ. Mr. Landis is a man of unusual power and •esources in the pulpit, and he is much at home in meetings of this kind, in which he has had extended experience. There will be many additions to the churches on Sunday next. A dog tax payer made complaint to the city clerk Monday that the tag that ie paid for had been stolen from his dog's collar. Numerous other complaints came in on the same day and jrought to light extensive stealings in that line. The tags are numbered and the city record shows the name of the tax payer to whom they were issued, a fact of which the thieves probably were oblivious. There will be a sharp lookout now for dogs wearing these stolen tags, and exposures are expected. .TJiere were a lot of dogs killed .by the authorities Friday. James'Patterson, treasurer of the committee having in charge the finances of the revival meetings at the rink, reports that the basket collections aggregated $161.12. This was exclusive of the collections of a week ago Sunday, which went to Mr. Cordner. The latter received $328.84 on his last Sunday, and $5 subsequently, making$338.84 in all. The expenses for rent, janitor, lights, singing books, moving chairs, and other items came within about $25 of equalling the collections, and there are 21 books on hand. The conduct of the finances was in good hands. A circular letter has been received by the REPUBLICAN from Kirkhart & Ryan, proprietors of the circus to be in Algona next Monday, June 1. Tnis letter states that the attachment of the circus, reports regarding which have appeared in the daily papers, has not interfered with a single exhibition and that the dates have all been filled. The attachment seems to have been brought in behalf of a Perry bank, to collect notes endorsed by a former partner of Mr. Kirkhart of the present firm, and for which nobody connected with the show management was responsible. Tne circus seems to be a sure enough comer. President Pettibone of the Cemetery Association says that after the 28th no teams will be allowed in the cemetery until after decoration day. The driveways are being placed in condition and the prohibition of carriages is with a view to keeping them smooth for this occasion. He also says that the taking of flowers and plants from the graves and grounds has become such a serious matter that future offenses will have to be punished. Not only have flowers been carried away from the graves, but plants have been dug up, and in one case a choice plant was litfcerally ''slipped" to death. He says the parties are known and they will be called to account if the offenses are repeated. It will readily be seen that this is a matter about which the parties placing flowers and plants on the graves will be sensitive. AteD ON SHE AND DESIGN The Dead Lock in the School Board Gives Way and Action is Taken, The Board Selected the Parsons Design and Bought a Site— Thk Teachers Are Elected. The school board finally came to an agreement on a plan for the third ward school building, adopting the Parsons plan. This gives the town a handsome school house and a satisfactory one in every respect. The bids on the work will be opened June 12. The board also selected and contracted for a site for the building. It is to be the east six lots of block No. 156. This is located a block and two streets north from the intersection of the Northwestern railway track with the Diagonal road. The block is one of ten lots, and it would all have been secured but for the fact that Mrs. Woodworth, the owner of the two lots on the southwest corner, asked $600 for them and the small house. The six lots purchased were bought of Geo.C. Call for $700. The grounds will be reached from tli« east of the track by a grade crossing ou Elm street, which runs north of the site, and by an under crossing on Oak street, one block farther north. The railroad company has promised to widen the passage under the track on Oak street to full street width. When that is done sidewalks can be put in and a safe and satisfactory way opened. The ground is high and dry and every way suited to the purpose it will be put to. When the board took up the site question they adopted a resolution to place the house west of the track, and the action wag taked by unanimous vote. The board met Saturday evening and received and adopted the report of the committee on teachers. The report did not cover the principalship nor assistant principalship, Prof. Carroll having been previously elected for next year, and Miss Coate wishing to be given time to decide whether or not to make application. Following are the persons chosen as teachers of the several rooms: No. 9, Mrs. L. M. Horton, at $50 per month; No. 8, Miss May Hotelling, of Mason City, at $40; 7, Miss Campbell, at $45; 6, Miss Tena W,al- lace, at $40; 5, Miss Bird Hotelling, < at $40; 4, Miss Cornie Ingham, at $35;,' 3, Miss Olive Salisbury, at $35; 2, Miss Mvrtle Putsch, at $35, and 1, MissTillie Cramer, at $60. Miss Hattie Stephens was elected to take charge of room No. 1 in the building to be erected in the third ward at $45 and the election of teachers for the second and third rooms was deferred. Misses Agnes Bandall Jessamine Jones were elected to the special and departments at $30 a monnth each. Misses Ingham and Salisbury were elected for one term only for the reason of their limited experience, neither having ever taught a full term.

SI PERKINS COMPANY. A NEW INSTITUTION. A Young Men's Christian Association to be Organized in Algona. A movement which promises complete success has been set in motion looking to the organization in AJgona of a Young Men's Christian Association. The young men are pushing it with energy, and already about eighty names have been secured, and -when the organization is effected there will probably be one hundred or more. The quarters which will probably be secured are the whole upper story of Geo. C. Call's office block. The space is 24x68 feet, which will be ample for the purpose. The partitions will be shifted to suit the needs of the association and will give a large gymnasium, a reading room, an assembly room, bath rooms and water closet. The rules of this organization provide for active and associate members, the former being members of churches. It is proposed to maintain a reading room and gymnasium and provide gospel meetings for Sunday afternoons. It is expected that about $300 will be expended in furnishing and equipping the rooms -which will be made as pleasant and attractive as possible. At the Call Saturday Evening Next, May 3P,—Press Notices, The Beatrice [Neb.] Republican, of Oct. 14,'93, says: The West Virginia country play, "Si Perkins," occupied the boards at the Paddock Theatre last evening and excited the risibilities of a goodly audience. The play is whole; some, humorous and full of action, and t vgap J* P«rtQ» as Si w&Mm; L?H C01$aairas^na fairly.divjded the honors of the play. The orchestra was the best ever heard in Beatrice, "The descriptive overture, "A Trip to Coney. Island," as rendered by the famous Si Perkins orchestra, was alone worth the price of admission. Be sure and see the Si Perkins parade. QOT HER MONEY'S WPRTH, Wesley Reporter: An Algona youngster who had his wits about him &n,a his eyes open at church when the contribution box was being passed got it back at his mother on the way home when she was finding fault with the sepaon. "Well, ma," he said, comfortingly, "you can't expect much for a. cent," LOSES HIS CROP. E. B. Eddy, Who Went from Buffalo Fork to Missouri Last Fall, Loses His Entire Crop. —No Insurance. It is just learned that E. B. Eddy, who formerly resided in Portland township, and who removed to Missouri last spring, has suffered the complete loss of all his crops by a hail storm, everything in the line of crops being destroyed. We heartily sympathize with Mr. Eddy in his loss, the more so because, as we understand, he had no insurance against hail. How-a farmer in this county can afford to take his chances against such storms as we are liable to equal with Missouri, when for a very small sum he can secure himself against loss, is more than we can • understand. It shows a lack of judgment or of foresight. Every farmer should take time by the forelock and secure a policy in the Farmers' Mutual Insurance Association of Iowa, which has shown itself a perfectly reliable company. This company paid nearly $5,000 in losses in this county alone last year, and the cost to those who insured was only from 3 to 4 cents an acre. Geo. S. Angus, of Burt, represents this company, and he is the man to see about tnis business. The whole business can be attended to by letter. Brownell & Alired have a few more of those patent leatuer shoes left at $2.69, You will miss t&em when they're gone. The sale of excursion tickets to Clear Lake will be resumed on May 10th and commencing that day excursion tickets will be sold every day up to and including September 30,1896, to Clear Lake and return at one and one-third fare, A.
