It is a curious relic of'early iimes. The reading room supper and fair, Friday evening, was liberally patronized and every expectation of a good timem'et. The total receipts we're .$85 of which some $70 is net, according to the arithmetic which is used in calculating the gain of church -suppers and the like. This will be'used for current expenses and new books. We were wrong last week in putting Bro. Hinchon as the earliest Iowa City student in the county, C. B. Hutching was the first to gd from here In the fall of 1869. At that time Miss Piercy was there. But Mr. Hutohins is properly at the head of the row of State Unlver 1 sity students. Mr. Hinchon went in 1869 from Allamakee county. The supreme court has decided that the boys who served against Kelley's army at Council Bluffs and Sioux City must be paid out of general state funds, and the boys of company F expect their money this week. The court says that to confine the cost to the regular ap- S ropriatioris would tie the governor's ands in ordering out the troops in an emergency. A newspaper down where Perry Bur- lingarae's cousin shot into the crowd that was charivaring her, has invented a novel way of trying criminal cases. It took a vote of the county on whether she should be convicted or not and the vote stood 2472 for acquittal to 99 for conviction. That is about a fair representation of sentiment generally, on charivari parties. .• . There was a big turkey shoot at the Loss farm in 'Riverdale yesterday. Shooters from Livermore and all the neighboring towns were up, and shot at targets on the "missand out" plan, the last man taking the turkey. John G. Smith took nine birds straight. Dr. West, Harry Moore, and Guy Taylor were all there and got birds. A big shoot comes off at LuVerne Saturday. The Courier is right about the changing of the time of the Northwestern freight train south. went down in the morning it accommodated all the people in the north part of the county who wanted to, come to' Algona and return the same day. Now there is no train that does this and it is a great inconvenience. People who want to pay taxes, visit the board of supervisors, etc., must either drive in or stay over night. The Northwestern should put some train on which will go south in the forenoon. Jas. Taylor and Leo Puegnet were in,Des Moines nearly all of last week as witnesses in the suit which J. L. Sutton is bringing for $6,000 against a dry goods house there, who traded a stock of goods for some Wi sc onsin land. The case was not finished but the plaintiff's evidence was got in, and the defendant will begin tomorrow. The land was not worth much and the stock of goods was not either, according to our merchants. But the merchants were foolish enough to go and look at the land and took it with their eyes open, and Frank Nicoulin, who made the deal, was smart enough not to look at the goods but took them on a written statement that they were not damaged. So the merchants have to take the land and make the stock as they represented It. They will make a cuter trade the aext time.

The Emmetsburg Reporter gives the Algona Deposit & Loan company an ex- bended write-up! The Algona Loan & Deposit association has been having quite a boom in Emmetsburg during the past few weeks, and at present the capital stock held by citizens of Em» metsburg amounts to $15,000. Last week a local board was'."organized here in order that the rapidly increasing business of tbe association might be under the 1 supervision $ home men. Tbe papers chosen were a,s follows; Pres., T, D. Croees vioe-preg., P, F. Gyling; sec., W, T. Kreiger; ass't. sec., " • Ryan; treas., O, W, Hodgkin' son. The board of directors is composed of tbe following men: Wm. Muir, P, B,. Wells, William Moses, P. J. Murphy, L. H, Mayne, J, 3. ifawe, J, and J, H. Ca,roi°hael. The asiQoiation'baa rapidly forged to the front during tbe fourteen months it has been in operation, which is un* doubtedly due to the excellent men who control its management, and whose business ability is sure to make it win, The increase in tbe capital stock held here is due tx> the energy of T.

Smith, which was tiotteed last Wedttesdayj fe j suited fatally Friday evenlhgi He was ottly taken sick the Thursday before, abd was odly coaflhed to his bed from Monday, He safik rapidly. The lu< tierul was held at the house Monday at 2 o'oloak, a»d Was attended by a large gathefitig of friends. Rev, Butlef (JOH' duotlflg the services; Capt. Smith came to Algo'ba in 1872, and with a partner tiataed Stevens, .opened a hardware store ia the west front of the creamery building at the Milwaukee depot. This was in the palmy days of the depot town. When the hiov^moat back to the old town began be came with it and opened his store on the corner opposite the Kossubh County bank, and as long as he remained in active business was at this stand. Rev. Butler in his remarks paid Capt. Smith such a tribute as only an intimate friend could pay. Their rela- Uons in the church work of the Universalists in Algona were such as to bring them closely together, and the speaker's emotion was marked as he at times spoke of the personal qualities of his dead friend. In dwelling upon the incidents of his life he gave the folio wing items of interest: "He was born in New York in 1824. At the age of 22, in 1846, he removed to Wisconsin. In 1851 he and Miss Emily Comstock were married, and in all these 43 years have walked life's path together. Here he gave some of his time from his usual occupations to the discharge of public duties to which he was called .by the suffrages'of his fellow citizens, as that of superintendent of schools, and other positions of trust, from time ; to lime. In 1861 he heard his country's call for men and promptly answered it, leaving his ungathered harvest. . He spent nearly four years in the army. Here the temptations of camp life had no power over him; much of his spare time was used in communicating, with his family and friends and not in corrupting indulgences. In no place, under no circumstances did he forget his home aad those he loved. He came to Algona in 1872, since which time, more than 20 years, .he has been well known in our midst, and now he has gone away many of us will miss him. Every benevolent enterprise, every good cause, every moral, social, political reform has lost one helping hand, one encouraging voice. But most of all he will be missed where he was best known—in his own home, by his intimate friends. Of this I cannot speak and there is no need.". Captain Smith was a genial man in social intercourse and his family has always stood in Algona in the very highest esteem. Mrs..Smith and their three daughters survive him. He was fully worthy of the tribute, he received, as Rev. Butler said: "After a long life, embracing an eventful period in'his country's history, this husband and father, comrade and friend ,has gone away. It is a source of satisfaction if not of comfort to us to know that he took an active and honorable part in the affairs of life. I know him to have been deeply interested in everything that promised good to humanity, an uncompromising foe to oppression in every form, to evil in every shape, to corruption in every place." Capt. Smith enlisted in the First Wisconsin cavalry, and afterwards raised a company himself of which he was captain. He was a brave soldier and bore with him wounds which had seriously crippled him. His death removes a well-know figure from Algona, and will he mourned by all who knew him> _________ PERSONAL MOVEMENTS. Mrs. Jas. Chapin is home for the holidays. N, J.
