He took several of our boys out and showed them the town, and also his fine farm near the city. The board proceedings take about all our space this week. But then that ought to be of interest to all taxpayers who want to know what is being done with the people's cash. Eagle Grove sold her $10,000 six per cent ten-year bonds at a premium of $700. The purchaser was J. Fitzmaurice, the president of the First National bank of Eagle Grove. This is a great year for republicans. Last Sunday twin republican boys were born to Mr. and Mrs. Fred McCall. We would suggest, Fred, that you call one Bill McKinley and the other Tom Reed. J. M.

The canning factory at Webster City have commenced feeding 140 head of two year old steers and quite a large number of hogs. They will utilize all the waste food from their canning factory that Is good for stock in this way.. They have lots of feed and are well prepared to care for the stock during the winter. A flowing well was struck on Archie Hutchison's Springfield farm last week that is a daisy. Mr. Hutchison can now mark the price of his farm up another $500 notch, as a good flowing well is worth that to any stock farm. Flowing wells seem to be quite easy to get in the north end, as a number have already been made. The ladies of the Baptist church gave their first or a series of lectures Tuesday evening. Rev. Wayland Hoyt, of Minneapolis talked very entertainingly on "Lessons from a Great Life." Their r^st lecture will be delivered by Dr." Strickland, of Sioux City, whose theme will be, "Gen. Grant, from a Southern Standpoint." Dr. Garfleld reports.. Mrs. Swan Peterson as almost recovered from her serious injuries sustained in the cyclone, The doctor carried out the skin grafting process successfully, taking enough epidermis frqm one of his feet to cover the wound on the lady's head, The healing process has been very slow, but Js now far enough along to warrant us In saying that the Doctor is more than satisfied over the results obtained. ; This, we believe, is the first case of skin grafting ever attempted in this vicinity, althougb the like frequently occurs in cities. Sheriff Samson went to Panora, Guthrie county, Wednesday after Cbas, Dygert, wanted at Ledyard for larceny. It seems that Dygert and another fel'ow were In the hayjng wholesale music house in Algona, yes- terday'received a large number of the finest pianos ever brought to this city. If you have not already called and examined their fine line'of pianos and organs, it will pay you to do so if you contemplate buying aninstrument. John Kennedy returned Wednesday from-!Winneshiek county, where he had been attending the funeral of :his father. The old gentleman was about eighty-five years of age. He died last Thursday and was buried Saturday. All; qf^tbe : children, : with ,the ^excep-- t'ioVof one in Texas, attended the .funeral.' A 'seven year old boy of A. L. Belton's;-while playing out in the barnyard Wednesday, was kicked in the head by a young horse and had his skull so badly fractured that 'the brains oozed out. Drs.

Dunn, Miss Ada P. Davis, A. C.Ellis, Mrs. Emma Foster, Mr. JohnGrein, Hawkeye 0. Club, John Krien, Mgr. Kirkhart's Circus, G. W. Kelly, 0. G. McCarthy, Mrs. Ella McOowan, Miss Ella Miller, O. C. Milljon, A. C. Red- fleld, A. G. Stormfeltz, Angelo Shirk, C. L. Winters. John Gilska will have a public sale at the S. A. Thompson place next Wednesday. He will dispose of some of his surplus farming tools and grain, preparatory to his moving to Kansas. He has purchased a 320 acre improved farm in Anderson county, Kansas, paying for the same $20 an acre. He will bo located In the eastern part of the state. It is surprising that anyone would leave good $20 farming land in Kossuth county for the same priced land in,Kansas, or even much cheaper land, for the whole state is dear enough at any price. We, however, wish Mr. Gilske prosperity in his new venture. Enos Rammer, while digging a well Mrs. J. O. Reaver and childred are visiting at the Hoxie home. W. A. Ladendorff has moved to the A. D. Clarke building where he has much larger quarters. Col. Cooke and Capt. Haggard will go to Fort Dodge Monday to attend' the meeting of the military clans. Algona was well represented at Ft. Dodge the past week. Upwards of sixty persons were down as witnesses and jurors in the U. S. court. E. G. Bowyer had as fine a diamond display at his store the first of the week as was ever seen in the west. The goods were direct from a New York importing house. Quite a number were sold to parties about town. E. H. Martin, of Webster City, who used to be with the Rock Island at Fort Dodge, is figuring with Eagle Grove citizens on a telephone exchange for that city, and thinks that sufficient patronage can be secured to sustain It. The editors of both of our republican contemporaries were at Humbold t yesterday as witnesses in the Joe Grose "blue sky" deal. We fear that they were not in a very pleasant mood while there as both were as mad as hornets because they were sub- pocnied. W. L. Joslyn and M. F. Randallg were down on the same case. Miss Virginia Dox a missionary school teacher of the Congregational faith gave two interesting talks of her work among the Mormans and Mexicans, at the Congregational church last Sunday. She is at present devoting her time to raising money with which to carry on the educational work. We believe that she met with good success at this place. Railroads are mortal like other people and sometimes have to yield to the clamor of the public. On Nov. 1 an order was issued governing all railroads increasing the rate of extra baggage under the head of "excess baggage rates." The thousands of traveling men just got up and howled, houses they represented joined in the chorus and now the roads are, figuratively speaking, tumbling over each other Jin their haste to recind the order and restore the old rate. 'At the residence of J. B. Winkle, in this city yesterday evening, occurred the marriage of Miss Maggie Winkel to Mr. Ralph Miller, of Stratford. The ceremony took place at 8 o'clock, Rev. Davidson officiating. The bride is one of Algona's most,charming young ladies, having been born and raised here. .The groom is now conducting a very successful business at the.tpwn of Stratford. Ho is an'ex- cellent young man in every.particular. The COURIER joins with their numerous, friends iri this place, and elsewhere, in wishing a long and happy life to Mr. and Mrs. Miller. The art social on last Tuesday evening, at the residence of Mrs. Dodge, given by the Guild of St. Thomas' church, was a very successful and unique entertainment. One gentleman after taking i the rounds of the galery, said It was worth more than ten cents and paid again. The attendance was good and so was the coffee and the sandwiches. Every body had a good time and all were happy. The net proceeds were satisfactory. The ladies of the Guild wish the editors of our papers to understand that they have a standing invitation to be present at all their church socials, arid shall always be pleased to see them on these occasions as guests of the Guild. * Emmetsburg Robberies. Last Saturday night J. J. Wilson's office near the Model mills at Emmetsburg was entered and the safe blown open and rifled of its contents. Sfcverat thousand dollars worth of notes were taken, but only a small amount of cash. It is the supposition that after the robbery had been committed that a dynamite bomb with a burning fuse was left on the floor of the office to complete the destruction. Their delivery team was in the stable adjoining, one horse was killed outright and the other one crippled. By hard work the fire company saved the mill, everything else was burned. Again on Sunday'night the office of Maj. Darrah a grain buyer over on the Burlington road was rifled and all of his papers taken from the safe. Mr. Wilson can not estimate his loss as a great many notes were taken of which he knows nothing about. If it was local talent that did the work no doubt they will be ferreted out. and punished. The Emmetsburg Tribune says: "There is some talk of a vigilance committee being organized here. A move in this direction might rid the city of future repetitions of the damage of Saturday night. Turn the rascals out, no matter who they be." Murder Near Spencer. SPENCER, Nov. 21.— The body of George Jefferson, an old bachelor, supposed to be murdered, was brought to town to-da,y from his farm six miles northeast.

The Algona COURIER is kicking because the young men of that place go away from there to get wives. At the same time it gives an account of a young man who got his license and the justice and everything aU'right and went to marry thd girl of his choice, and she fired the whole outfit out of the house.
