Now that we have two .of as good flouring mills as there are in the country, suppose that we.levy a duty of 25 cents a sack on all flour shipped into Algona. That is good republican doctrine, 'and it would be the means of shutting out the product of outside mills, thereby compelling our people to patronize home industries. By all means give the home flour the preference so long, at least, as it is equal to any to be had. ,;'.''A married folks' dancing club has been organized for the winter, with about forty members.

The sale footed up over five thousand dol lars, and D. A. Haggard, out lightning auctioneer, run it out in exactly five hours. It is a fact, conceeded by everybody, that Mr. Haggard is one of the best auctioneers that ever mount ed a block. If you are going to have a sale, you will make no mistake if you engage his services.
