She feels very thankful to the people who labored to save her goods. The Grand Army post at Its last meeting adapted resolutions thanking the citizen's and the relief-.corps for the .great success attending the bean supper. Dr. Sheetz and D..B.

He .is to speak in the Baptist church. <4 Myron Sohenck's new house is from plans sent up by his brother in Kansas. It is one of the best homes in the county, furnace heated and up to date in every respect. Myron's enterprise was not affected by the cyclone. The Bancroft Register intimates that during the coming summer Sundstrom's friends will challenge H. J. Wilson to shoot for the championship..

The sky was clear fthd the evening pleadaut. Sotne scientific discoveries were expected ffotn the eclipse, but at nearly nil the chief points of observation the sky was clouded. There are 8t students In .the normal school, more than ever before at this season. The attendance is largely frotn neighboring counties and from southern Minnesota, & large number coining frotfl the ftofth. The spring term of school opens Aprtl 16, If liothihg is done about equalizing assessments of property in town we shall have to lose fallh in, some of our talkers about town taxes. All .sorts of charges have been made as to gross in* equality. Will anybody appear before the equalizing board to enter com T plaint? R: M. Richmond is curious to know where his voting residence is.. He lives at Swea City and has -his business there while Mrs. Richmond lives at Bancroft and conducts the bank. Swea Gity is incorporating and it is important to him to know whether he can vote in the new city or not. A threshing machine company sued J; W. Bngley on some notes last winter and attached 60 bushels of onions. The first thing the judge did yesterday Was to order the sheriff to sell the onions and hold the' proceeds. The onions were getting too strong to be held by ah ordinary attachment. It turns out that Swea City has to vote over again on incorporation. The managers of the election printed tickets " for incorporation," but left off " against" and the law says both must go. A new election will be called and a lot of territory taken In' will be left off. They will incorporate one mile square. The success of the water wprlts in Wesley's election led to a big jollification in which the winners crowed a little over the losers. Prof. Wen. Colby took offense at the celebration at his place and had five citizens arrested and brought before 'Squire Clarke. Geo. R. Cloud appeared for them and they were dismissed. It seems that the school board overestimated the amount needed to pay off the school house bonds, and called for the usual $2,500 for next year. As there is $1,351 on hand and $2,500 corning in now, and as, only ,$4,000, is still due on the debt, the balance, is less than $500. The board promptly corrected its estimate. The grange is to have a big feast at its next meeting, which > comes Saturday of next week, .March 23. All. ancient patrons of Algona grange and all who have formerly been members ate invited to take their baskets, don their brightest smiles,; and come out to enjoy an old-fashioned harvest home 1 feast. This is the last of the season, preparatory to spring work. Nothing can be announced definitely as to the probability of a new hotel this spring, but J. W. Tennant is seriously considering putting up such a building as the town should have. A hotel is one of the chief things now, fitted up with the modern conveniences, and Mr. Tennant has the enthusiasm to carry it through if he undertakes it. At the school election Monday $2,000 less was levied than last year, as provision has already been made for paying the last of the school house bonds. This is a reduction in taxes of about six mills, and cuts Algona's levy very low, as THE UPPER DBS MOINES stated two weeks ago. The former levy for school purposes was $10,500. For next year the expense will be but $8,500. Rev. Davidson discussed the question of amusements, etc., in a very able sermon Sunday evening. His position was an elaboration of Moody's statement that the first thing to do is to become a Christian after which all such matters adjust themselves. In other words, in dinging in any amusement is a matter for the individual to settle for himself, having in- view his own highest interests. The Athenian society gave a public programme Friday evening at the normal school; the main room being crowded by the audience. A stage was erected and a farce was given by Jewel Hunt, Olive Salisbury, Geo. Hamilton, Will. Galbraith and Will, Salisbury, which was highly enjoyed. Solos by Misses Zoa Wartman and Ethel Burlingame,a recitation by Miss Zellhoefei and a selection by Prof, Johnson made up the programme, Over 900 voters turned outandfoughl all day over a one-mill library tax, and then not more than ten were present at the school election to vote a 23 mill tax for school purposes. But for some one happening to notice it the board! would have through mistake levied six mills more than there was any use for, The warmth of an election contest is not always proportionate to the importance of the issue involved, and the gentleman was right who thought that rebating a dog tax might cause as much contention as anything, Sheriff Samson went over to Em< metsburg Monday to see when our Ger- raania beer seller, Gallagher, who was allowed to go over and stay with his son, who fell from the train at Cylinder, was expecting to return, Mr. Gal lagher decided to come back with the sheriff and is again the guest of the county. His gon is getting along and is able to be about. He refuses to talk about his accident or to tell whether Murray, wpo was run over and killed by the same train, was trying to get bias out of the county or not, Auditor Calkins and his bride are already looked ir» their new home— Vhe house lately occupied by Div A. l>< Bisf. They were married at Blue Earth City lapt week MppJay, Mrs Calkins was Miss Sadie fj. Bonwoll She is a graduate, of the B vjniyersity, and has of the Blua Ear^ schools many #14 |rfeaa§ }» * ottinouSj but If fcnywfie has a few thm* 8 sand dollars lo put out fti eoffipwund interest for a like period of time, they can be accommodated at this office, and we won't be particular about the rate of interest, just so it's cbmpoubded right along," The old criminal list in a court docket tells afa interesting story. At this term the 13th continuance is noted in the Chas. Stewart case. Charles is the all- around rascal who took leg bail into Minnesota four years ago. J. L. Dixon, the gentleman Judge Quarton travelled over Washington for, has his llth coti- tinuance. J. R. Brown, Algona's late pugilist, is in the list. H. B. Gary, ,he lawyer who appeared to eeafdh for Jee Homing's pot of buried gold* is also wanted. These abd a half dozen more will probably continue to be wante.d. But if they stay away "they never will be missed." , The grange Saturday adopted reso- utions in memory of Mrs. L. Witham drawn up by Helen E. Jones, J. E. Blackford and Lizzie BamseV. The grange highly esteemed Mrs. Witham, who was always an enthusiastic mem* >er. The resolutions express the sen- .iments of all in saying: "Sister Witham was a woman of more than usual energy and faithfulness, and &\- ,hough in great bodily weakness for u he past few months, she has -been among us, always striving to exemplify .he precepts of our order and also ever •eady to lend a helping hand in the >erformance of the labors of the same." The Courier pretends that the library tax would have carried if the work or it had not been overdone. And the Courier knows that in this year of Jrover a tax could not be carried to _ecure the kingdom of heaven without leroic effort. The tax would have been >eaten two to one but for the energetic work for it, and while some did not see this before election day no one was mis- aken after the polls opened. The work against the tax was aggressive rom the start/ No one questioned that a majority of the men were 'against it. The theory that the women were solidly o'r it was soon exploded, hence the outcome. Chanee of Location. The W. H. M; S. will sell all kinds of home-made baking at B. H.
