It is a beauty and no mistake about it. People are in to look at it every day, and the wonder is how so fine a buggy can be sold at such a low price. * PONT FAIL TO SEE IT. Wilfrid P. Jones. Wall Pauer. w E have in stock at present over twenty thousand rolls of wall paper. We have carefully selected this line of paper from all/the best factories in the United States, and in making this selection we have succeeded in getting their Very Best Patterns. We are therefore enabled to show you as fine a line of wall paper as it is possible to produce. There is, as you undoubtedly know, a vast difference in the qualities of paper, and it has always been our aim to buy nothing but the very best in every grade. 'We are better prepared to serve you in this line than any competitor, because we have the largest and best stock, and as for prices we can sell you paper from Six cents Up. t- Just stop and think. Have you ever had an opportunity to buy wall paper <as low as SIX cents for a double roll? With paper at this price you can paper an ordinary size room for less than fifty cents, """'Bewar© Of Fakirs who canvass from house to house selling paper by the single roll and charging you from 20 to 50 per cent, more for inferior goods than legitimate dealers would charge you for good goods. We solicit your trade and are always glad to compare quality, prices, and patterns with any com' petitor, Frank W, Dingley, The Druggist -5 s WATER OR NO PAY, SOOTT ICE! ICE! ICE! White winged peace Ho longer broods over the Algona city council. We hatre joined the ranks of the cities with a mUncipal row on hand. Census of ho census we belong With Chicago, Boohe and the rest. The real cause Is hard to get at, but whatever it is, it' was sufficient to Warrant five members in voting at the meeting Saturday night to rescind Mayor Haggard's Committees and to appoint a hetf lot, This is the first time in our history that the toayor's right to appoint the committees has been questioned. At the last meeting he named the following: Wuterworks-^-liicouHn, Wadawotth and Sa.vers. Finance—Ferguson, Magnusson and Vesper. Streets and Alleys—Wadsworth, Bayers and Henderson. Printing—Pettibone, Ferguson and Magnusson. Health—Sayers, Ferguson and Pettibone. Ordinance—Vesper, Henderson and Nicoulin, Fire—Sayers, Wadsworth and Ferguson. Settling Committee—Vesper, Ferguson and Wadsworth. The council by a vote of Ferguson, Pettibone, Magnusson, Henderson, and Vesper against Nicoulin, Sayers, and Wadsworth voted these out, and changed three of them as follows: Waterworks—Nicoulin, Vesper, Magnusson, Ferguson. Streets and Alleys—Pettibone, Henderson, Sayers and Wud&worth. Health—Sayors, Henderson and Pettibone. Mayor Haggard in speaking of the committees says that he was actuated only by a desire for the town's best interests in making his appointments, and that he consulted as generally as he could before acting. He is especially anxious to have the coming two years prosperous ones, and he feels that his administration has enough difficulties ahead without any quarrel at the outset. The reasons given for voting down the committees are that two from one ward were on one, that the Second ward is not represented fairly, that A. P. Dailey is in some way mixed up in it, etc. The council voted that all back taxes should be expended for street work in the ward where they are collected. They also elected Samson to succeed S. S. Stebbins as street commissioner. They postponed electing a superintendent of waterworks until the April meeting. At that time probably further changes will develop. While THE UPPER DBS MOINES is glad of any change from the dry routine report of city proceedings, it hopes that the council will keep in mind that there are other matters to be attended to before fall, and that Algona has already exhausted considerable energy on that library contest. With the number of caucuses and conventions still awaiting us it will not do for municipal affairs to get too many hot boxes so early in the spring. SUPT. DAILEY RESIGNS. A. F, Dailey resigned his. position as manager of the wator works Monday evening. He has been in charge ever since the water works were begun and like a great many other public servants his merits have been obscured and his demerits magnified. He has been marshal, waterworks manager, city plumber, night watch, all on a salary of $60 a month. When he has been away from the pumps on his other duties his father has been • employed at $1.25 a day, and that but part of the time. His brother Charlie all summer ran lead joints on the .mains for $1.50 a day when Mason City paid $5 a day for the same work. It is a safe statement that not another town in Iowa has had the same service at as little- cost. Mr. Dailey says that he has several positions in view, but will remain in Algona. His resignation is due to an announcement on the 'part of the five members of the council that their constituents want a change.
