LIKES THE TALMAGE SERMONS, V, S, Ellis Wants Variety of Rellg- loua Reading and. Talmage 3?ur- nlslies It. SWEA. CITY, Feb. 88.—Since you are having so much discussion pf tbe "Talmage sermon " question, I beg to inform you that I was an almost constant reader of these sermons during the past year. Not because of my great admiration of Mr, Talmage, but because bis style of preaching is considerably different from that of nearly all our local preaobew, and a man wants some assortment even in bis religious life. Respectfully yours, VEBNB S. Ems, , Feb. 38—1 like Talmage's ser jnons very muoU and have not failed tp read every one since I commenced t9 take the paper, which bore the date of August J, 1894. I am sorry to have them taj?en put. MRS.

WADSWORTH Second Ward W. K. FERGUSOK Third Ward WARREN BATES Fourth Ward E. E. BAYERS The caucuses and city convention last week were conducted quietly and resulted in securing an exceptionably good ticket. D. A. Haggard has been mayor once, and is known so well thai he needs no commendation. J. W. Wadsworth as member from the First ward has been one of the best councilmen the town has ever had. The Second ward in choosing Wm. K. Ferguson did the very best thing possible, and the Fourth also in choosing Dr. Sayers.. In the Third Mr. Bates has just moved in and is not so well known, His friends, however, recommend him, G. F. Peek, who is to be tbe treasurer, is one of Algona's very best young business men, and G. H. Lamson, who has so long acted as assessor, is to continue to keen the run of city property. The ticket is a good one and has no opposition except in the First and Third wards.

John, aged 76 years, died in the old brick known as the Schaffner building n the south part of the city last night. Dropsy was the immediate cause of his death, but dirt, filth and poor care, may more indirectly be attributed as the cause. The old shack of a build- ng has for several years been the lome of two or three families at a time who paid no attention to the accretion of filth. Mr. St. John has for some .ime been receiving aid from the coun- .y and about a week ago was taken to us bed. Saturday, he was discovered n a pitiable condition with hardly clothes enough to keep him warm, ilean clothes were procured and steps taken to make the unfortunate man comfortable. Two. sons living at Boone, 'n no better circumstances than their Bther, left. Tbe body will be bur- ed by the county tomorrow. A family by the name of Hill live in the house and should receive the attention of some of our charitably inclined people. JOHN GOEDERS is receiving new spring and summer' goods daily.
