Marshall Lumbar's Algona friends will be pleased to learn that he IB one of the three state university debaters" to contest with the Minnesota students. Tho debate comes at Iowa City, May 18. The Iowa team won last year at Minneapolis. Last week Wednesday the' engineer on the Northwestern train south saw a lot of iron piled on the track just north of Rice's bridge over the river. He stopped in time to prevent any damage. No clue is had to the perpetrators, and their object is not known.

Hinchon has fallen off 12 pounds since he began as postmaster, while Wo, Starr fleshed up at it, It is evident that no such habits of accuracy are acquired in editing democratic Worma- tionastofita man for postofflce details. ' W, B. Quarton is receiving. many friendly assurances of support m Ws candidacy to succeed Judge Carr. The field will be full but his chances are, to say the least, as good as any. He is well known over the district in his law work and will have lots of friends m the convention, A collector for one of the foreign machine companies had a lively experience at Burt last week trying to get a settlement with Alois Rabm, After several visits and consultations Mr. Rahm seized a gun and Mrs, Rahma broom stick and the agent vamoosed without further parley.

If they can they would put in a small depot there and use the "Y" extensively for town business. Much interest is felt in the high school contest Friday evening at the opera house. There are some good declaimers and an excellent pro- gramme. Prof. Dixson has kept the names of his judges secret and they will not be made known till the cision has been rendered. They are from a distance. Another burglary was committed Sun dav night, this time at the store o Patterson & Sarchett. The screen over the back transom was torn off, the glass broken and raised, anc then the door was unlocked and lef open. If anything was taken the pro prietors could not tell what when thej came in in the morning. Some time ago Dr. McCoy wrote t the Burlington railway officials sug gesting the feasibility, if they contern plate building south west, of beginnin at Forest City or Buffalo Center an running through Algona to Bode an so out. They reply that they will not build this year, but that they will consider the matter in the future. ainment was ever more enjoyed. It vas the first opera ever given in town, nd it is one of the best comic operas ver written, and Ed. Andrews is the est Koko that has yet appeared. A nil house should greet such old ac- uaintances and enjoy again the catchy music and humor of this splendid iroduction. The celebration over the 90th birthday of Geo. W. Jones at Des Moines ast week has a local interest as he was n the senate when the Algona post- office was established and was instrumental in getting the post road fixed. He was imprisoned during the war on account of his sympathy with Jefferson Davis When he was released he came from New York to Chicago on the same train A. Rutherford was on and the cars being crowded they botn occupied the same seat. Mr. Ruther- iord has pleasant recollections of the trip. B. P. Kirk of Mason City was over last Thursday to complete a trade by which he gets a half interest in O. u. Creed's colt, "Brown Storm," sired b HAYE A LOCAL BEARING, Some Miscellaneous Matters Possessing More or Less of Local Interest in Some Form.

On all sums less than $2.50 the rate will be three cents. As the money order is much more complicated for the postmaster to make out and attend to this means more care for Bro. Hinchon, who will soon be a candidate for tho skeleton man in a circus. The Minneapolis & St. St._Loui8 railway have now begun an action at Fort Dodge to have the appointment of the administrator for the brakeman killed at LuVerne set aside. By this they hope to beat the judgment of $8,000 secured by her here in Algona on account of her son's death, They are trying everything they can to get out of paying. This is the suit in which they forgot to appear and defend. It seems that Louis Kossuth not only gave a name to this county, introduced the soft hat into America, and brought the fashion of wearing full beards, but that the peculiar round-headed steel nail in his shoes became popular and was known as the Kossuth nail, Horace Schenck says he used many of them, They were driven into the sole and the round heads were left out like heavy nails sometimes used now on shoes. In discussing a bunch of Canada thistles which is flourishing in the rear of the Methodist church in Algona several of our citizens reported a new weed like a milk weed and some like a thistle that seems to abound and IB spreading, The sweet clover which is getting in along roadways and embank' mentsis also becoming an object of suspicion, It is said that in Wisconsin sweet clover has run out pastures and caused no end of trouble, The musical entertainment at the Congregational church this evening by the Columbia Male quartette is highly spoken of by many of our neighboring papers, The Clear Lake Mirror says; *»The quartette is composed of four excellent voices and the gentlemen are true artists, Their voices blend well and their 'shading' shows they have the true conception of the essentials of a male quartette—perfect harmony and expression." The prices charged ave 35 and ?5 cents. Articles have been agreed on for a public reading room and it will now be open every afternoon and evening. The capital stock is put at $1 a, share and active efforts will be made to get it on a self-supporting basis. A fine list of periodicals is ROW taken, and the future of the room depends largely on the demand there is for such a place, Being open now every day, there should be a good and growing attendance on the part of all who do not baye all the leading periodicals at home. Ed. Andrews will reappear as Koko in the Mikado next week Thursday evening. The first time the Andrews ever came to Algoaa they played the I fciiijad 0 ty W^sou'f b^ 1 * *w °°- euter?

He is probably as valuable a colt as has been bred in Iowa lately and much is expected of him. Mr. Kirk has taken him to Mason City, where he will de vote his time to breaking him and ht ting him for the track. A curious question has been raisec bv Union township. The county boarc levied one mill of the township road tax as the state law contemplates, and the trustees have ordered Clerk Jenkinson to levy the full five mills as heretofore. One or the other is wrong, and Mr. Jenkinson intends to correspond with Attorney General Stone. The wording of the law is not as explicit as it might be, but the intention of it undoubtedly was to give one mill to the county board to be spent in permanent improvements. In any event it is plain that with its present contracts for work the board is in position to use the tax to excellent advantage, and we hope to see its right in the matter sustained. Anyone who will look over this week's board proceed- Friday evening will come one of the events of the season in the declamatory contest. It will be at the opera house, and the programme promises a treat. As the winner is to represent Algona in vhatwillbe the most hotly-contested competition yet held in the state, everybody will want to encourage him or her, as the case may be, at tho outset. Prof. Dixson is not announcing his iudges, who are from outside,tho town, and until the decision is rendered they will not be known. The programme is as follows; invocation • • -Rev. W. E. Davidson S °af"cWme Again, Beautiful Bells. Ma y 7onuson. Declamation. . . ^Oration on Danle! O'Counol in every town visited on their recent tour and a request to return again is universal." Tho Forest 'City Summit does not speak so flatteringly: "The Columbian Male quartette appeared at the opora house last Friday evening under the auspices of the Ladies'Ceme- tery association. The gentlemen are good singers and gave a fair entertainment to a, good house. The recitations by Miss Bessie Lavaun Hallett were additional features of the evening s programme, but in an elocutionary way, they were certainly not above the avarage." Geology in Kossutli. Senator Lewis disclosed in a speech against tho geological survey in tho senate last week that the geologists have been in Kossuth, which will bo news to everybody. He read from the bills of the survey showing that the Held workers had visited three towns a day, such as Algona., Bancroft and Mason City, on the same day, and said that it was impossible for them_ to ha_yo made any original investigation. He . is correct. Wm. Ward used to say that there was more field for geological investigation in Kossuth than anywhere in Iowa.

With an extra mill to use we believe that the roads would soon be very materially benefitted everywhere, In Union township nearly $2,000 has been spent by the county on one grade out of the bridge fund, and other heavy work is needed which the present method of township work will never be able to accomplish, _ _ _ _ SESSIONS will make you a real estate loan on easy time at as low a rate as any firm can, WHITE SWAN flour sold only, by Langdon & Hudson, Randall. Sheldon's Asylum Boom. The Messenger tells how Fort Dodge lost the new insane asylum and also how Sheldon went to the front; Sheldon entered the contest and tho Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul raihyay made a vigorous fight for it, that being the only ono of the candidates on its line of road.- GeoE. Clarke o^Algonu, managed the railway's campaign ana the Sheldon vote was the surprise of the contest. Roswell Miller, president of that company wrote hundreds of personal letters, not only to members of the general assembly but to prominent men supposed to have influence with members, asking them to vote for Sheldon, and saying that the favor would be appreciated by him. Those letters counted. * * * These voters and the Milwaukee railway influence and mileage books boosted Sheldon up beyond everybody's expectations, and prevented Fort Dodge from climbing over it.
