Mayor" Boyle joined Mark Pray and Sarah McKihzle in the holy bonds last Week. The Musical club meets with Mrs. Donahoo tomorrow evening at V:30 O'clock. The Baptist young people give a can* dy social at M. B. Chapin's Friday evening. The last of this month the opera house will be open "For a Million," a clever play. The ladies will serve an oyster supper at the Congregational church tomorrow evening, Mrs. McDermott of Wesley is pro- sdcuting parties there for selling liquor to her husband, Rev. Stevens preached a scholarly Thanksgiving sermon Thursday to a large gathering. Three boys up in Fonton killed 23 jack rabbits in one day last week. That is a pretty fair record. •Dougal Wallace is holding his* last clip of wool, some 1,600 pounds, for bettor prices, Wool is at the bottom now. C. P. Borland lets our readers know that he is still in the land of the living. They would appreciate more frequent reminders. The Bancroft Register says that Ben. Smith's coal vein "consisted of a single chunk as large as the crown of a man's hat." The tax sale Monday lasted two hours, and at times the bidding was lively. One piece was bid up to the one sixty- thousandth. Swea City will soon have the largest grain elevator in this part of the state. It is being put up by Minneapolis or St. Paul parties. Frank E. Smith is. back from a trip ,to Indianola. He has arranged matters there so as to be in Algona now until he moves to Des Moines. Drs. Dorr, Morse, and Walters took two ovarian tumors from Miss Ella Bloor last week, and she is recovering nicely from the operation. Bancroft will soon have a pleasant wedding. P. G. Pettibone, brother of C. D. and S. H. of Algona, will lead Mrs. M. C. Patton to the altar. A supper and fair, .for the benefit of the reading room, will be givnn at the Rutherford sample room on Friday, Dec. 14, afternoon and evening. G. A. R. meets Wednesday evening of next week, Dec. 12, for the annual election of officers. A full attendance is expected and earnestly urged. Albert Reed has sold his farm in li-vington and is building a fine home in the southeast part of town, west of David King's. He has his barn completed. Alonzo D. Clarke has put up one of the fine new houses of Cresco the past season, and is now at home in as comfortable a place as be could wish. He has a fine farm. Haman Ward of Portland, is very sick and has been for some time. Last week 20 teams were out husking corn for him. A bee of his neighbors did the friendly act, Algona Grange held a very pleasant meeting Saturday and decided to have an oyster dinner and supper, for the benefit of the grange, with Miss Bamsey, on Thursday, Dec. 13; price 25 cts. W. H. Ingham witnessed the foot ball game at Omaha in which the Nebraska team wiped the earth with the Iowa team. He says he wanted several times to get in the ring and help the lowans " buck " Nebraska off. It is not often that Algona print shops do business for firms as far away as Whitewater, Wis, THE UPPER DES MOINES made a record last week, sending a complete outfit of note heads, letter .heads, etc., to a business house there. The skating was never better than during the past week. From the mill to Rice's bridge the river has been filled with skaters every afternoon and evening, The best record thus far reported is from the mill to the bridge in 29 minutes. The married people were out last Wednesday evening in force for their dancing party at the court house, 63 tickets being sold. They get the court room by paying $10 to the cyclone relief, thus making the use of the hall for "charitable" purposes. Melzar Haggard, Collie Chubb, and Guy Taylor attended the grand military ball at Emmetsburg Thanksgiving evening, They report a royal reception. The receipts of the dance will pay for the fine rifle range the Em* metsburg boys have put in. , Frank Jenkinsqn decorated our office last week with a pretty turtle shell in which the denispn bad died, and dried up some years ago, He found it in a bay stack, but whether the turtle got caught there and came to his untimely end trying to get out be does not know. A mandolin and guitar club is organized in town, and we understand will make its debut at the amateur concert to be given Deo. 87 »t the .opera house, In the Baptist lecture course, Algona baa only needed snob a club to have all the accompaniments pf a full-fledged * $J.

He thinks for fife purposes one is as good as the other. A. H. Paine had a ticket in the bicycle raffle last week) and C. C. Samson wanted to get one so Amasa let him hafe his. The ticket won the bicycle. S, fi. McMahOtt had one for the Second bicycle and he let Geo. t*latt have half of it, as a joke. The ticket won the bicycle, George has offered to run a race or fight for the machine, and S, E. is willing to flip COppers for it 4 but they neither will agree to the other's proposition. John G. Smith brings us an old UP- pEtt DES MoiPfEs of I8t9* containing A. L. Hudson's graphic write-up of tha republican county convention which nominated A. B. Frink over Jack Pink- ertofl after a very bitter fight. It is a queer commentary on .the mixed politics of those times, too, to note that C. D. Pettibone was nominated for super* visor, and that A. M. Horton, Bro, Starr and their friends were his chief backers. Kossuth may think it enjoys "A" class politics now, but these are piping times compared to the old days. Herbert, son of Perry Burlingaine of Irviugton, killed a jack rabbit last week with a gun that has a history, It was used by Perry's great-grandfather in the revolutionary war and wns. kept in the family of Perry's uncle until sent to Herbert. It was made over, from a flint lock iu 1856. The old original owner died at 97 years, and the gun is now in the hands of the fourth generation. It killed the jack rabbit as successfully here on an Iowa prairie as it probably did some red-coat back along the great coast, long before Iowa was dreamed of. Mrs. J. H, Warren's father, Mr. Hor* ton, died a week ago in his Wisconsin home at the ripe age of 93 years and four months. He was a ship builder in Buffalo, N. Y., in early life, and a pioneer in Wisconsin later. At the age of 85 he built a school house, and for many_ years after that was in full vigor. He visited Algona several times and is pleasantly remembered by many who made his acquaintance. It is a curious commentary on our short national life that he was a big boy during the war of 1812. He witnessed tke battle of Plattsmouth in 1814, and heard the cannonading when the British fleet un der Downie was captured. 1/ast week we published a report implicating-Hill, the man who ran from Swea City to Bancroft lately, in a family break-up over at Spencer. Mr. Hill has since called to say that be never was in Spencer, and that while he confesses to having been run out of Swea City, be thinks it is putting it/on too thick to hold him responsible for a seduction he never beard of. It is evident that the Spencer man has some one mixed up with Hill and that the mistake is his. Mr. Hill says further that his only offending in Swea City was wearing a Prince Albert coat, which irritated some local pugilists. He intimates that there are three or four bullies up there who are likely to pitch on the wrong man and get their physiognomies disfigured. Mr. and Mrs, H. S. Vaughn are making their first visit in Algona since they moved to Denver five years ago. They are the guests of Mr. and Mrs. E. G. Bowyer and will be here some days. Mr. Vaughn is now a member of the board of city supervisors in Denver, that being the chief seat of city government. It is also reported that he has made a comfortable fortune in real estate. He reports a lively political campaign in which he spoke once every day, and many days twice, against Gov. Waite and the "anarchists, "as he calls them. He says that it was the votes of the women which carried the state. Mrs. Vaughn intended to have come to Algona earlier, but remained at home to take a hand in the campaign and cast her ballot. They consider woman suffrage a great success, and endorse it heartily after having observed its workings.
