The Shelby county Republican notes the suggestion of S. S. Sessions for clerfe of the supreme court aRd says: el Mr, hl8 feafidictacy PeeeivSs pfSper' fttlfiftWeBi He Is a Molt ejteellefit ffiftfl afid .would make an ideal clerk.» The Republican is Kepfesefltatlve Byetfl home p&pef.

Baker, who was consul to Copenhagen for the , last two years, Is in 'Washington settling up his accounts with the state department. Mr. Baker will leave for Indianola the early part of next week. A pedestrian club is one of the new things this spring. We should have more faith in its permanence if 6 o'clock in the morning were not the hour for setting forth. We have arisen several times to meet 6 o'clock walkers before, and have lost confidence in such radical movements. W. F. Carter traded fora high-bred pacing stallion last week in Dubuque. He is one of the best horses ever brought to this section, out of Kentucky Prince and Meander, the latter once removed from Hambletonian 10. He is named "Macbeth" and is a very handsome horse.

Walker, who has every appearance of being a fit candidate for Coxey's army, was arrested at Bancroft last week for breaking the seal on a freight car. His hearing came on Monday before 'Squire Clarke, W. B. Quarto'n and Attorney Raymond prosecuting. The case was postponed till next Monday to give time to secure evidence. The ladies of the A. L. A. will give a chicken pie dinner at the leading room next Saturday from 12 o'clock until 2, price 25 cents. This will conclude for a season the lunches which have been given for the benefit of the reading room, and to which the public have so generously contributed. The proceeds of this dinner to be used for the purchase of new books. A sample of what takes the flesh off the postmaster is such a direction as the following on a letter dropped in the office the other day. It 'read: " Miss Christine Nelson, 175 Fourth street, Brooklyn, E. D." Ho found that E, D. stood for no country on earth, and can tell where every Brooklyn is, but not where to send the letter. The sender should call. Carter's owl has attracted a good deal of attention in his show window, and several have been led to believe that it is artificial, Is was found by John Walker in a drain tile at the lumber yai-d, apparently in a good state o! health ana uninjured. It sits on the pickle jars in the window all day as though it were born there and seems to have been pretty well tamed at some time, A valuable addition was made to the public school outfit last week. Seven raised maps which show the elevation of the country as well as its surface geography have been bought. They are somewhat expensive but give at a glance the character of the country in all parts of the world. They came in a handsome case which will be set in the main hall for the use of all the rooms.

There will be ?§ or 80 representatives of high schools here to attend frdfid all over Iowa and Algona will want to be In apple pie order for the event. We have had several convincing proofs the past week that our condensed reports of the county board proceedings are being carefully perused. Mayor Call's letters have been followed by a, visit from W. H. Seth, the present resident of Union whose return to Palo Alto was arranged for at this session. He said nothing about the board nor visited the auditor's office, nor denounced the official papers, but came to us direct with vigorous threats of a libel suit. If anything further comes of our record of the proceedings we are going to put in a bill to the county. The city well was down 834 feet at 7 o'clock this morning. The diggers are still in lime rock. The present stratum has proved about 300 feet thick. The diggers struck the first rock at 270 feet and have not put in pipe below that. Shnle and rock alternated until they were 470 feet deep when they came to the present layer. They have struck several veins of water and the Well is filled to within 65 feet of the top. At one place the drill dropped a foot and the water raised over 30 feet at a jump. It is expected to strike, sandstone below the lime rock, and In that to find a boundless supply of water. County Auditor Doxsee received word from Emmetsburg that W. H. Heth had been able to take care of his family over .there, in response to his notice ordered by the board. Mr. Heth also came in and indignantly refused the $8 a month awarded by the board at the request of the Union township officials. From Heth's story it seems that the whole affair results from a misunderstanding between 'him and his son-in-low, and that he is not .a pauper. He threatens to sue the township, authorities for slander. .In the meantime the county is $8 a 'month richer than it thought it was. The movement to get a permanent band company in Algona is one of the best of the season. Last week we published what ha's been done _ in Emmetsburg. A permanent organization on a financial basis insures a good band, a chance for all the boys'to learn something of music, and any amount of healthy entertainment and recreation to the public. We have: often advocated that a band was a proper object of town expense to be provided for as sidewalks are. But the company being formed makes this, unnecessary. Our citizens should take hold with vigor and help get the band on a permanent business footing In the control of business men. C. Byson has moved this' spring to his farm on the Black Cat which he has christened "Oak Shade,_" and will take active management of it himself. This is the Wm. Moore farm and contains the remains of the oldest log cabin north of Algona, and the second or third in the county. It was built by Wm. H. Ingham and A. L. Seeley and occupied by them the first season they spent in Kossuth. Mr. Byson says that a few stone that formed the base of the chimney are all that remain. In the slight depression that was once a cellar is growing a butternut tree six inches through. The farm is one of the handsomest in the county, and Mr. Byson will have a pleasant home.

What the later developments of the season may be in the way of new build" ings the spring season has opened up in Algona as lively as though no period of hard times had been known in this section. Buildings now begun and soon to,be begun make a Very creditable list of improvements. The only business block assured at present is Geo. G. Call's office building on Thorington.
