In a recent letter Willet S. Dorland says that he hopes to visit Algona during the summer. He and his family are at Llano and are enjoying good health and as much prosperity as these democratic times permit in Texas. Chairman Chubb says that probably the board will submit the jail question again this fall, They, cannot expend over $5,000 without a vote and they cannot build a jail for lest than $7,000. If the people want a better jail they should vote to have it. The Republican got its history mixed last week in telling about the old building E. G. Bowyer occupied. J. J.

Lund will be allowed by the state board qf health to sell his cows'subject to inspection in market. The board, however, have a strict rule against the use of either milk or meat from even slightly affected tuberculous animals, But the late reports seem to indicate that the meat is healthy unless the animals are badly diseased, Lewis H.

The poor 1 lecturers get wore now than the best did then, while the good ones are away Up. The rich get richer and the poor gain a little, It seems that Pat Kain came out ahead of his sot) Thomas on that cattle trade, Some time ago he bought his son's cattle at $5 a hundred for May delivery. All the old stock buyers told him that the boy would beat him. But last week he sold the cattle a Sexton at $5.60. The steers average about 1,600 each. He sold 66 head which brings in a neat sum of mone The big sale is due to a sudden rise I stock prices during the past few week Another fakir was in town last week this time selling cologne seeds. Th seeds were good red clover sprinkle with a little cologne water. He bough them at J, J. Wilson's, but he did no do as good a business as the man di who sold soap to cure corns. It \ astonishing how easily we are-all im posed on. Who would suppose tha clover seed could be palmed off on ani body, and especially as the seed cologne water? Jas. Carroll of Armstrong was pleasant caller last Friday. He doe not come to Algona as often as he use to in early days. It is now 30 year since he located in the Grove at th same time with E. B. Campbell, Perri and one or two others, and those 3 years have witnessed some marke changes. But they don't seem to hav made, Mr. Carroll much older. W hope to receive a call from him 30 year from now, and several in the meantime In a recent letter Horace Man writes from Washington and says: " would not be without the U. D. M., and adds a promise which we hope h will not forget: "For some time have been wishing to communicate wit. my Iowa friends through your columns but have not found the time to write There are several things that I'Wan to say, and hope I may be able to sen a communication ere long."

She had a wide circle o friends and acquaintances who mourn her untimely death, and who sympa thize with Fred, in his bereavement She was born in 1870, graduated from the high school in ]888, and joined th Methodist church in 1892. If we thought Bro. McMullen woulc publish the following Wesley news w< should leave it for him, as we are con fldent no one else can do it full justice It seems that Prof. Colby, or some aggrieved at his report of the trial o sundry citizens who jubilated over th recent election, has had him called be fore the churck as a prevaricator Justice Clarke has received an offloia inquiry as to certain facts in- the case and we are glad to state they vindicat the veracity of our esteemed contemporary.
