There is still room for improvement in that line. The water has not been so low before in years. Rain to the amount of over two inches has fallen here during the past two weeks. It is acceptable, of course, but would have been worth more last July. People who have occnson to correspond with this paper should address their letters either to the paper or to the firm. The reiison for this ought to be apparent. This office is under obligations to Editor Albin of Whittetnore for the loan of a small article needed in making the official ballot. Until he Is. better paid he has our thanks. The Andrews Opera company comes tonight. You should have secured seats before this time for one of the best entertainments that will come to Algona this .year. Tom Bennett says it was a meat hook that came in contact with one of his optics, 'in which the latter got the worst of it. Tom now sees the point with the other eye. The Courier wants every democrat to turn out on election day and do his duty. That's proper; and if he does his duty he will mark the circle at the head of the republican ticket. The ladies of the .'Congregational church will meet at the home of Mrs. Stacy, Nov. 1, Thursday, at 3 o'clock for the study of missions. Subject, The Work of the American Board in Japan. Our " Preacher's Note Book" is gaining even a more extensive circulation than it gets through the columns of this paper. Copious extracts from it are noticed in our neighboring exchanges. The Epworth League of the M. E. church will give a Chestnut social at the residence cf Gardner Cowles, Thursday evening, Nov. 8. Everybody come and have a good time. Everything free. poses. A partition will be tun nearly the length of the building, a double vault put in, and a front door at the southeast corner. He will occupy the east Bide, and the balance will be for rent. He will have a model real estate office when it is overhauled. At the meeting of the city council last Saturday evening Archie Hutchln- soft tendered his resignation as city clerki which was accepted, and Chas. CohenoUr was elected to succeed him. Mr. Hutohihson's resignation is for the reason that he expects to be absent most of the coming winter. He goes to St.^Charles, La., as representative Ite Speaks,at Banct-oft In the After- of Ambrose A. Call, who has large business interests in that section. Aug.

Even* His —Let Will Be Rousing Ones All Turn Out and Meat Good Gospel. go on the road for about the middle of use of it. Th'e slowness with which the wound has healed hns been the means of delaying him in joining his Northwestern Quintette orchestra, which intended to the winter season October. A sale of household goods belonging Sinn, the man who was sent up for the LuVerne burglary a year ago, occurred on the street Saturday. The goods have been stored at the poor farm, where the woman in the case died some time ago. Sinn has served out his time and was hero to attend the sale. A suggestion to the effect that the county might have kept the goods as part payment for what it cost to send Sinn up was entirely pertinent. Wednesday night last some drunken idiot went stumbling along the sidewalk—at least bo was on the walk part of the time—and on reaching the residence of John Hohn ho stopped and hammered on the door and demanded admission. Mr. Hohn had retired for the night, and being averse to such disturbance he commanded the fellow to leave, but it was with considerable persuasion that he was induced to take his departure. He will be dealt with severely if he prowls around that neighborhood any more. The Andrews Opera company will be heard at the opera house this evening. Among the artists of the company are Marie Roe, Florence Clayton. Jessie Andrews, Jessie Rico, Corrine Burton, Lillie McMillan, Caddie Lee, Ed. Andrews, Frank Dpshon, F. W. Multers, Jack Allison, Milo Joyce, Fred. Clayton, J. K. Boniger and others. The new opera to be produced this season is "Falka," a comic- opera in three acts by Chassaigne. All new costumes, their own orchestra, strict attention to Congressman t)ollivor has at last been secured for two speeches in this county on Nov. 1—in the afternoon at Bancroft and in the evening at Algona. The DolliVer meetings will be rousiag ones. Here, where he is well known, and where he has been a frequent speaker on political issues, the mere announce" ment of his coming is quite sufficient to warrant the statement that his meetings will be overflows. All accounts agree that his speeches this year have been masterly productions. He is one of the men in congress who is constantly growing broader and better fitted for his responsible position, and the Tenth district has every reason to feel proud of its brilliant representative. His services were in such demand in other portions of tho state this year that it has been next to impossible to get even a promise that he can be had at all, but a letter from Chairman Blythe, received last week, names the date as Novi 1. Northwestern Iowa's republican majority, always large, has been counted on to take care of itself this fall, and speakers like Dolliver have been drawn upon in those portions of the state whoredemo- crats and populists needed conversion. Tho result is that this immediate neighborhood has been neglected. Though late in the campaign Kossuth county people will yet have an opportunity to hear republican principles expounded in a manner such as will leave no doubt of their correctness.

To the Electors of Kossuth County: At the general election, to lie held on Tuesday, Nov 6,1894, the following offices are to be fllled by the electors of said county: The office of County Recorder. The office of Clerk of the District Court. The office of County Attorney. The office of County Auditor, The offices of two Supervisors. Whereof all the qualified electors of said county will take due notice and govern themselves accordingly. Done at my office in Algona this Oth day of October, 1894, b c. C. SAMSON, 7 89 Sheriff of Kossuth County, Iowa. Four horses sold under foreclosure proceedings on the street Saturday for $28. They were pretty fair horses, too, but nt $7 apiece it looks as if the revival of the horse market is not approaching at rapid rate. We are long on election ticket and shorten space this week, which accounts for the lack of the usual amount of' reading matter. This occurs but once a year, however, and our readers will bear with us this time. Company F entertained the shooters from the outside who were here last week, and did it to the satisfaction of all concerned. That is simply in accordance with Algona's known reputation. She never does things by halves. detail, makes this the strongest organization ever put on the road under this management. "Falka" is the comic opera which the Andrews company put on in Algona for the first time a few years ago. It will be remembered that they laid up here for about six weeks, during which time they were rehearsing and adding artists to their company, and many will remember the pleasant evenings spent with them during that time. Though apparently pursued by some sort of a hoodoo, and notwithstanding the misfortunes they have mot with during the past few years, it is said they are better equipped'than ever before. It takes more than railroad wrecks to hold down the Andrews. Chas.

One circuit is completed and the water turned on, and house connections are being made as rapidly as the plumbing can be done. The water system of the town will soon be on a paying basis, The State Mutual Insurance company of Des Moines, represented in this county by E. W. Donovan, had twelve losses by the September cyclone in this county, all of which have been paid in full, except that of H. Benke, and the balance of his will be adjusted without debate. Benjamin Habeger and Miss Minnie Streucker stood up and joined hands in the county clerk's office last Saturday while Justice E. H. Clarke said the few words that made them man and wife. Both the contracting parties are from Garfleld township, ana represent leading families in that neighborhood. A business deal is about consummated by which C. M, Doxsee becomes owner of the hardware stock of H. J, Winkie. The invoice will begin soon, and the transfer will then be made, Mr, Doxsee is a capable business man and will make a success of the venture. Mr, Winkie talks of going on the road. Scott & Dailey's well drilling machine got stalled last week on the Zanke farm, where a deep well is being sunk, and at last accounts it was unable to make further progress. The exact nature of the trouble was not known, but it is probable they will have to pull up and start a new shaft, They are down 180 feet.

Skinner has formed an alliance with his former partner in Res Moines, E. N,' Cook, and has already begun business there. He is now arranging to remove to the capital city early in December, or as soon as he can settle up some business matters here. Mr. Skinner is a capable business man, and we think he ought to remain in Algosa, There was a eraftll cyclone at the in which youpg Caulking wa,s forcibly ejected from tge ball by one pjf the managers. Caulkins gave evidence of having imbibed too much "Sagwa" and insisted eg taking part in the show by making frequent Interpolations while the entertainment was going on, hence t»ie early exit, Geo.

His colts, each two years old, got loose and ran full tilt into the fence and were badly lascerated in consequence. One was his fine King David colt, one of the best in the county, and for which Uncle Joe Tennant offered him $100 in cash at the fair last month. Charley hopes to get them through without being badly marked, but this does not alter the fact that the barb wire is the invention of the devil. It may be regarded as a necessity, but we have long believed that the fellow who got it up ought to be subjected to a punishment similar to what so often happens to stock that get into it. The death of S. S. Potter of Cresco township occurred on Monday at 11 a. m- This announcement comes with some surprise, for, while it was known that Mr. Potter was not in good health, yet his condition was not thought to be critical. Wo understand that his trouble was cancer of tho stomach. Deceased came to this county from Illinois about 20 years ago and settled on the farm in Cresco which has ever since been his home. He was well known as a man of probity, and was highly respected by all. He leaves a wife and four children, three of the latter being \narried, He was about 57 years of age. The funeral occurred at the home yesterday, the exercises being conducted by Rev. H. B. Butler. Geo. W. Hanna of Lu Verne discusses the supervisor question at some length in this issue. This is one of the important issues before the people of this county at this election, and it may be said to have been unfortunate that a wider range of views has not been secured in time for the voters to have arrived at an intelligent conclusion in the matter, As it is, very little has been said in a public way and the experience of those who have seen the proposed plan tried elsewhere is not generally known, There are some objections to the district plan, chief among which Is the fact that while a district supervisor may be satisfactory to his own district, yet he may not be sufficiently broad minded to consider the interests of the county at large. In such event the voters outside of his district have no voice in saying whether or not be shall be retained. This feature has been known to work injuriously, and men have held their positions year after year, when as a matter of fact nothing but the district plan could keep them their places. Dolliver at The Reporter says of tho big Dolliver meeting at Emmetsburg last week: The Dollivor meeting was precisely tho splendid success that our people anticipated it would bo. The hall was so full that scores of people were unable to gain admittance. Mr. Dolliver's eloquence and humor held the audience spell bound for two hours and no one who heard him felt tho least bit wearied. Mr. Dolliver is a magnificent ^peaker. He is becoming less caustic and less sarcastic as he grows older, but is no less witty or eloquent. He captivated Sheldon and undoubtedly sowed seed that will yield an increased republican vote in this community. McCarthy nt Whlttomoro. State Auditor C. G. McCarthy spoke to a large audience at Whittemore last Friday evening. A goodly delegation from Algona went over to hear him, and all report a splendid meeting. He devoted most of his time to the money question, in which he showed that he has been a close' student of this problem, and was able to give facts and figures that could not fail to prove convincing. It was a vote-making speech from start to finish. The Radiant Home. When in need of a hard coal base burner, give the Radiant Home a trial.
