There are two divorce cases for next term of court. The teachers' convention Saturday will be worth attending. A big audience was out for " Faust" again, and enjoyed the play. Now that the library is settled for a year, let us back to tuberculosis again. All the wards but the Third gave a majority together of 61 votes for the library, Four first-class men are elected to the council. The town could not havo done better. The city should establish fire limits and shut out wooden buildings on the main blocks. Revival meetings every night at the Free Methodist church, conducted by S. H. Lewis, evangelist. School election comes next Monday. Directors are to be chosen to succeed W. H. Ingham and J. W, Robinson. Although A. F. Dailey was sick and unable to be at the fire, the boys did good work with the hose and deserve credit. The bicycle riders can be getting ready for the county fair. Those medals will be given away this year, rain or shine. C. C. St. Glair's friends have received invitations to a big reception in Marshalltown he is one of the four to be tendering. The officials have by their vigorous action closed up the Germania saloons. That village is " dry" now according to all reports. Out in Lotts Creek E. C. Lashhrooks, who is one of. the board of directors which was indicted, is re-elected by the township. S. Benjamin spent Monday walking from one polling place to another to see that no canvassing was done within the 100-foot limit. At one time in the Fourth ward two women were in the polling booths holding babies in one arm while marking ballots with the other. A brother of S. B. Shadle died at Moline, 111., yesterday aged 36 years. Mr. Shadle cannot attend the funeral on account of ill health. Several outside lawyers were here yesterday to attend court, not having learned that the term had been adjourned until next week. The young people of the Baptist church will hold their regular monthly social at the homeof C. J. Doxsee, Monday evening, March 11. Everyone invited. The Wesley Reporter says: "Our Fred Corey and Miss Kate Goeders of Algona won first prize for waltzing the most graceful at the mask ball last Friday evening." Everybody has been asking if spring is really here, It. will be remarkable if it keeps as mild through March as it promises, but nothing has occurred yet to indicate the contrary. Marriage licenses have been issued to Peter M. Nelson . and Anna M, Rix, Aggo H. Johnson and Stina Spier, Labold Stolz and Tena Rosenau, Louis Klatt and Augusta Lessner. The normal school paper says: " Eighty students enrolled during the first week of the school. New ones are continually arriving and a large attendance is expected this term." The Northern Iowa Normal school will hold a five weeks' summer school, beginning some time in June. Every teacher in the country should arrange to spend their summer in school, C, D, Creed and family go to Carroll tomorrow to make their future home. They have lived in Whittemore and Algona many years and a wide circle of friends regret their departure, Jos, Orr bands us this suggestion; " I am an old fireman and think that the council ought to vote a little extra pay to the boys for their work at the fire. I am wilting to pay my share," Everybody should plan to attend the big bee, May 80, and help get the fair ground fence so that it will hold the crowds this fall, When it is moved we shall have the handsomest fair grounds in the state, The ladies now have a whist club and are reading Pole. They propose to master the science of it and have adopted Sarah Battle's famous rule: » A good fire,» clean hearth, and the rigors pf the game," To the casual observer it would ap« pear that the public library scheme had joined the Y and the Belmond eg. tension in the nimbus pf futurity. But the promoters pf the cause are pot dis- * awJ the library will live to teraflf ., beginning calendar p| i ppbllo in» •sm ksttts neli&lier vote, T"heft Ike cftine tip town fiuletly and votgd Against it. Some of fadies toldMfs. Finneil and She promptly appeared and Voted for it and so kept he? side ef eh, The ladies are hot So* slow as politicians. SdmeoHhe leaders In opposing the library tax set tip a cheer in front of the postofflee when the f)6ws that the Third ward had defeated it came down. Some If&veHng men standing by asked What the occasion was, and when told said that Atgona was the only town they had ever visited wbfce anybody of standing could be found to Cheer over the defeat of a library. Mr, Woostef, who carfle lately from Sumboldt and opened a restaurant in the building burned Monday night, lost all his household goods and has no insurance. He was living up stairs and the stairway adjoined the laundry, He and his family barely escaped when the means of communication was cut off, Even their clothing was burned. E. B. Eddy of Portland cites the record to show how the bill demonetizing the stiver dollar in 1873 was sneaked through congress. It is inter* estlhg as history, but the practical question is how to get the dollar back again. Tip to date "all the king's horses and all the king's men" have been unequal to it. The dairymen of the county should assist in bearing the expense of making the test of C. L. Lund's herd thorough and satisfactory and final so far as Kossuth is concerned. Let men opposed to tuberculin and the state authorities be represented, and let the post mortem settle the matter. The county could well afford officially to take a hand in. A big audience filled the Congregational church and lecture room Sunday evening to hear the public library question discussed. It was an enthusiastic meeting. Revs. Davidson, Stevens and Kennedy spoke and among the others were Supt. Reed, E. H. Clarke, W. K. Ferguson. Miss Nettie Durant, Mrs. Horton, W. C. Danson, D. B. Avey, etc. All favored the library. Miss Anna Lordell was the first lady to vote in the First ward, Miss Jessamine Jones led in the Second, Mrs. Chas. Slagle in «the Third, and Mrs. W. C. Danson in the Fourth. It is a question who was the first. Miss Lordell 01* Mrs. Danson, but both were the first voters in their wards. Miss Jones was due in Britt to open her school, but staid in town long enough to vote. Through amisunderstandingthe train which was to take the Bancroft visitors for " Faust" last Friday evening was not sent from Eagle Grove. The train from the south did not arrive at Eagle Grove and so no train WHS made up as expected. The visitors sat, in the depot until morning and went home on the 8:18 passenger. It was very inconvenient for them, and everybody here regrets it. Jefferson Beem of O'Brien county was taken to the insane asylum Monday by his brother, James Beem of Ledyard, the commissioners here passing on the case. Mr. Beem was a land agent in O'Brien and has been 12 years in the asylum. Not long ago he was released and came to Ledyard to visit his brother. While here he became worse. His trouble teems to be a softening of the brain. Two cousins of C. R. Lewis of Irvington, who have spent four months since they were here last fall in a trip over the'TJnited States, write to him that they like Kossuth county better than they do any place they were in, and one of them, if he can sell his 300 acre farm in New York, will locate in Algona. They stopped all along on their journey but found no place like this, und indeed nobody does. H. J. Wilson writes to THE UPPER DBS MOINES that he has not hiien challenged to meet Sundstrom of Bancroft for the state medal, which he holds, but that all the Bancroftites have proposed is a contest for a Bide purse. He also intimates that he would be glad to accommodate any of our Algona shooters in a contest for the medal. Can't Kossuth furnish somebody to compete for tbe'champion- ship? .Eight years ago the morning after election when Mayor Haggard was chosen the big fire in the Galbraith store occurred. Yesterday morning after he was chosen a second time the fire in the Salisburybuildingsocogrred. These are expensive bonfires to celebrate our David's political successes. But then a fine brick went up on the Galbraith corner eight years ago, and who knows what the town may gain on the Salisbury corner? How would a was a polished and eflteftaihiag talkofi dome of the chief topics Suggested by his theme, Midland Literature. Irr opening he staled that in bo place in Iowa had his magafcifee received a more cordial weleofae thai! ifl Algotta, and tbatitgftve him special pleasure to meet the people. The audience was very hearty in its applause attd enjoyed hearing hiffl> A piano solo hy Miss Edith Bowyef and Vocal solos by Miss ZoaWarimanand Miss Ethel Bdrlitt- game of Emmetaburg added to the pro' gram'tae. ,:...^.,... ,.

Peter J. Walker furnishes us with a letter on the Lotts Creek school director trouble which is crowded out. in it he discusses the law governing directors taking pay and in conclusion says that as those to be tried next week have paid back all they received the court will doubtless say to them: "Lazarus, come down, thy sins are forgiven thee; go and sin no more." We don't know as Judge Quarton will use this biblical expression, but his order will doubtless be us Mr, Walker suggests. The discussion of the library tax bus occasioned a great deal of complaint about the unequal assessments of property in Algona for taxation. Assessor Lamson is now busy and before long the city council will be in session as a board of equalization. If there |H merit in these complaints the council should give them attention, Hnd tho complainants should state their caso fully. The street talk during the past week is very injurious to the town Hnd unfair to tax payers if it is without any foundation. If It represents real grievances they should receive attention. A curious question arose over h<>w to wake the tickets for the m«n und women pn the library tax.
