W» 3i mudtey's little boy has beeb sick fitfe weeks with typhoid fever, but is now getting better. Tomorrow will be Thanksgiving, Al* though it comes late In tbe month, the weather has been very fine. The Catholics received 20 waifs from a New York asylum, last Friday, and scattered them in good 'homes in the dOUnty. Marshal Dalley says that there will be 100 new water takers when all the connections are made with the water mains. The Amateur Musical club will meet witb Mrs. J. T. Chrischllles next Friday evening at 7:80 o'clock. Election of officer s. Manager Haggard says that one of Frohman's companies will be here early in February and play "The Girl I Left Behind Me." Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Ingham went to Omaha yesterday to spend Thanksgiving with their daughter, Mrs. Russell, and witb their son Fred, Marriage licenses have been issued to John Boy er and Anna Kinnen, Albert Gillet and May L. Sarchet, P. O, Brendjord and Katie G. Tveth. The Algona foundry is now at work on feed mills and will turn out 200 this winter. All the wood and iron work is done here, and a first-class mill is being turned out. Sir Knight. Alex. Peddle will conduct services in St. Thomas' on next Sunday in the absence of the rector. We ask for this eminent layman a cordial hearing. Mrs. Poor, a prominent lady in Dubuque, is visiting 'Mrs. E. L. Cooke. She spoke on the woman question to a large audience at the Baptist church last evening. It is reported that N. J. Skinner has all arrangements completed for moving to Des Moines. He is an energetic business man and will make it lively wherever he is. • Fred Miller of Plum Creek has been at the state university at Iowa City for medical treatment. He has a se- •yere stomach trouble which has disabled him all summer. Mayor Call has built a big barn -on his town farm. It has a fine stone basement for hogs, and is fitted up for hay and grain with two stories above. It is one of the best barns in the county. Rev. Kennedy is arranging to have a curtain run up in the Methodist church so as to get a young peoples' room that can be cut off from the main audience room. It will be a great convenience. David Dutton showed Monday that Algona is not out of Thanksgiving provisions. He brought in 20 turkeys, this spring's product, which averaged over 22 pounds apiece. Who can beat that? The reading room ladies are planning a big fair for the middle of December. They expect all who are interested to contribute articles suitable for holiday presents, and to sell them at the fair. A young man, Carl McClellan, tried to jump on a freight oar at Bancroft. last week and slipped. His foot was caught and he lost two toes. Dr. Garfield, the surgeon for the road, went up and amputated them. Yesterday the rifle and shot gun experts gathered at the Godden place, two miles from Burt, and indulged in an old-fashioned Thanksgiving turkey shoot. Algona was well ' represented, and the boys got some birds, Union Thanksgiving services will be held at the Congregational church tomorrow morning at 11 o'clock, Rev. Stevens conducting. Those who have not beard Rev, Stevens should attend, as he is a young man of ability, a pleasing speaker, and a great . addition to the Algona pulpit, AH who know of his work will be out, The case of Kohen against the Mil' waukee company is to be brought again in new form. Mr, Sullivan says that there is evidence to support a verdict and that they will not drop the matter so long as they can get standing in court. This }s the Whittemore injury case which was taken from the jury at Fort Dodge by Judge Shiras. Work has already begun on the census of the state to be taken in 1895. It will be a complete census, showing our material as well as numerical gain since tbe United States census of 1890. Des Moines ia the state's largest city and expects to shpw 80,000 people, AI' gona should come close to 8,000, judging from the ballots cast and tbe number of school children. Archie Hutch {son started Monday evening for a six months' stay in Louisiana, He will go alone and spend the time in opening up pome big rice plantations Ambrose A.

A little seveti-yeftr-old son of A. L. Beltott was kicked by A horse last Wednesday evening, and the skull over the forehead was cracked »nd indented. Dr. KenefiCk was called. It was found necessary to cut a point of the bone Off and then pry out the piece which pressed on the brain, The child hfte bad a hard time Of it before and is in delicate health, but at present is improving and seems likely to survive the injury. E. P, Keith, Monday, bought a quar* tef section adjoining his big farm at $25 an acre. It is known as the Snell land and is one of the best pieces in the county. What time has done with land values is shown by this tract. It was offered to G. W. Paine, who owned the farm south Of it, for $8 an acre and he refused to give but $2.60. In those days land could be had for almost nothing. The same land will sell at $60 in the next ten years. The meeting of the officers of the Fourth regiment at Fort Dodge, to consider the promotions to be made, was postponed from last week Wednesday and was held Monday. Col. Cooke and Capt. Haggard went down. The Vacancies were in the positions of lieutenant- colonel and major. Major Humphrey of Stoux City was promoted to the colonelcy, and Capt. Kirk of Mason City was elected major, W. E. G. Sanders of Blairgowrie goes on Mnjor Kirk's staff with rank of captain. The new men are all among the best in the national guard. The Northwestern has, made a alight change in its running arrangements, and Algona now gets the t.h rough train from Tama City and the passenger from here goes to Tama City, and the passengers going west from Eagle Grove will change cars instead of those going north. The present time card has the morning passenger north at 8:18, and the afternoon passenger at 3:32. South, the first train goes at 3:12 and the late one at 6:07. The freights make a change. Going north the time is 9:30 in the morning, and going south 2:62 in the afternoon. The largest audience the Socitil Union club has drawn was out Friday evening to make the winter opening a success. J. T. Chrischilleshna a, fine paper on "Romantic Love." It was interesting and of great literary merit. In it he showed how our idea of love, coming from the times of chivalry, has elevated woman, and also exerted a marked influence on the character and culture of the race. Mrs. Cora Danson argued for co-operative house-keeping in an interesting and vigorous paper, and Miss Lulu Clarke gave a very entertaining recitation. The meeting was most enjoyable. Addison Fisher is interesting himself in the J. EL Grose case and is asking Judge Thomas to sentence him and then remit the sentence during good behavior. No one in the county is moi'e bitter on the blue sky business than Mr. Fisher, but he feels that Mr. Crose is more sinned against than sinning and that he should not bear the brunt of the whole offense, especially if he will now quit and turn his attention to legitimate pursuits. He got letters from many Algonians to Judge Thomas. THE UPPER DES MOINES endorses the movement and hopes that the sentence may be allowed to stand unenforced, while Mr. Crose lets " blue sky " and such like alone. A short story is soon told and so not much space is needed to relate the skating trip of W. L. Joslyn and Geo. M. Johnson to Des Moines. The sun mercifully shot such rays on the ice below Humboldt that it melted, and they could go no farther. But they skated to Humboldt, a distance they estimated at 150 miles when they first arrived, but which they cut to 80 after they were well rested. Mr. Joslyn puts the wire fences across the river in that distance at 600, the sand on the ice at several inches thick, and the grass in the bed of the stream like a meadow. Mr. Joslyn was subpoenaed as a witness in the Crose case and arrived in time for the trial. But bis mileage was figured on the shortest route by train, It was 40 years ago Saturday that W. H. Ingham first came to Kossuth county. A hotel keeper at Cedar Rapids named Stein was coming to get timber claims and Mr. Ingham came with him to hunt elk. They rode from Homer, then the big city of Hamilton county, to Fort Dodge, and then to Dakota. Here camping on the river banks were Aug. Zahlten and L. Hack man, Their first stop in Kossuth was at Malachi Clark's. He lived in the grove just northwest of Irvington. It was evening and they asked for lodgings. He said that he had all he could keep, "But up the river two miles is a man, named Call, who keeps strangers." And so the two came to the Call cabin, which stood a little north of Chubb brothers' home. They remained a few days and shot elk and then went back, When they came they bad & map which showed mountains and pine timber where Algous is, an4 Mr. Jngbaw had expected some trout Ashing such as they fcad io New York, ________ -.,—-,. — - AftSt ft rttt 11 Amei while bis sennas ifi eollege he cam6 Id Algottai and IK the spring bulll a handffdtnB home wi Me'Gf<§gtff street-. fig was Waffled ia MO, afid Mfi, Wftflfflftfl SBd fdflf i5bildre« fufti^ all living at home but Mrs. Dfake\ Mr. Waf tinafi Was a pleasant matt td ment socially, honotabie ifi business, a good citizen, His death will be to Ralph Mills* and Mien Mafttfe Win* kei fife united ia the i'f^sehco of a tiftthtiFittg of IrHeuds. Last Thursday evening a small number of relatives and friends, including the Matrimonial club, met at the home Of Mr, and Mrs, J. B. Wlrtkel to wit' ness the marriage of their daughter to Ralph Miller, The ceremony was performed by Rev. Davidson and was especially attractive. ' Light refreshments followed and hearty congratulations to the happy pair, No two of Algona's young people haVe Set out with better wishes from more friends. The bride is a handsome and accomplished young lady. Ralph is one of the most enterprising and successful of the young men who have begun their business life here. Saturday they departed for Stratford, where he has a fine business established and where he has a home all furnished and fitted ready for occupancy, and where house-keeping has already begun in earnest. J, H, QUIOK EXOITES HIS HOSOB, In the suit against the supervisors at Sioux City, which J. H. Quick is prosecuting, some lively tilts are reported by the Journal. Yesterday it said: The session opened with the customary tilt between counsel, Mr. Quick, looking in the direction of Mr. Argo, asked if Mr. Lynn hadj been telephoned for. Mr. Argo re -lied that he didn't know and didn't care, as he was not on that side of the case. Mr. Quick said: "I was not talking to you, sir." ,. "You looked at me when you spoke," said Mr. Argo. "Possibly," said Mr. Quick, "monstrosities always attract my attention." Producing a mammoth lead pencil, Mr. Argo said: '• " Yes, and it will take this monstrosity to get down your fool sayings today." The court here interrupted the attorneys and called for order, At one juncture in the examination Attorney Quick asked a question. Judge Van Wagenen said: "Sustained." "But there was no objection," said Mr. Quick. "I know it," said the court, "but the court has commenced to make objections. It has got tired of this kind of examinations." , One of ti»* J>}one«?rs'pr at JBJt Hem« in The Jong iUn$»««^ i, g.

LOOKINQrOB HILL. This morning Algona was visited by a Spencer citizen who wants Hill, the man lately run out of Swea City by the public. He is lately returned from the east, where he has been 18 months, and discovers that Hill has caused him trouble in his family in his absence, He says that his wife and Hill were in Algona together several times, and ex- S ects to get some evidence he wants in otel registers.. Hill will consult) his own safety by keeping as far'from Spencer as he does from Swea City, Winter Tourist Bates on tbe'North- western Line.
